It could be called 'WHAT IS YOUR SPIRITUAL STATUS?'
We all have a spiritual status.
The same way everyone has a status when it comes to HIV
You are either positive or negative.
In life you all have a spiritual status.
Allah (SWT) has divided mankind into 3 categories: Muslim, kaafir or munafiq.
Today's topic is to define what your spiritual status is.

When Allah (swt) said you are either a Muslim, kaafir or Munafiq,
These labels can be subdivided into 30 different labels.


1. MUSLIM

A Muslim is a person who believes in Islam and practises it
But he might have a weakness of character which is a major sin.
The above definition means there is no such thing called a non-practising muslim.
Allah told you there is no such thing as a non-practising Muslim.

But if they repent, perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, then they are your brethren in religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for a people who know. (At-Tawbah 9:11)


2. THE MU'MIN

The Mu'min is the Muslim who abstains from major sins.
This is the Muslim who doesn't have a major sin as a trait in his character.
For example the mu'min doesn't drink alcohol, have a girlfriend or go to casinos.
He doesn't do drugs.
Therefore every mu'min is a Muslim but not every Muslim is a Mu'min.
The Mu'min is on a higher level than the Muslim.
The Prophet (saw) said the adulterer is not a believer when he is in the act.

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "An adulterer, at the time he is committing illegal sexual intercourse is not a believer; and a person, at the time of drinking an alcoholic drink is not a believer; and a thief, at the time of stealing, is not a believer."
Ibn Shihab said: 'Abdul Malik bin Abi Bakr bin 'Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Harith bin Hisham told me that Abu Bakr used to narrate that narration to him on the authority of Abu Huraira. He used to add that Abu Bakr used to mention, besides the above cases, “ And he who robs (takes illegally something by force) while the people are looking at him, is not a believer at the time he is robbing (taking). [al-Bukhari (5578) and Muslim (57)]

What the Prophet meant is that he is still a Muslim while he is committing zina
But he is not a mu'min.


3. MUNAFIQ

A munafiq is a hypocrite
He claims to believe in Allah, His angels, His books, His messenger, Judgement day, destiny But he doesn't believe.
A munafiq is a fake Muslim.
The hypocrites come on social media and they hide behind dodgy nicks
And express their kufr without any fear of reprisal.
The munafiqeen of yesterday didn't have any social media
So they used to hide their hypocrisy.
They are bolder than the munafiqeen of yesterday.
The hypocrites of today are very vocal with their kufr.
Allah (swt) spoke about the hypocrites in Surah Baqarah verse 10:

In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allah has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies. (Al-Baqarah 2:10)

The disease Allah is speaking about is the disease of doubt.
It is hypocrisy.
They doubt their deen.

THE SIGNS OF A HYPOCRITE

'Abdullah ibn 'Amr narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said, "If anyone has four characteristics, he is a pure hypocrite, and if anyone has one of them, he has an aspect of hypocrisy until he gives it up: whenever he is trusted, he betrays his trust; whenever he speaks, he lies; when he makes an agreement, he breaks it; and when he quarrels, he deviates from the truth by speaking falsely." [Al-Bukhari (34) and Muslim (58]

The above hadith mentions only 4 signs

SIGN # 5: THEY DO NOT REMEMBER ALLAH SWT

The hypocrites, men and women, are from one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief and polytheism of all kinds and all that Islam has forbidden), and forbid (people) from Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and they close their hands [from giving (spending in Allah's Cause) alms, etc.]. They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (At-Tawbah 9:67)

SIGN # 6: THEY ARE STINGY; THEY CANNOT SPEND FOR ALLAH

They are mean and stingy.
They cannot donate a pound or a US dollar for Allah.

And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allah and in His Messenger (Muhammad SAW); and that they came not to As-Salat (the prayer) except in a lazy state; and that they offer not contributions but unwillingly. (At-Tawbah 9:54)

SIGN # 7: THEY ARE ALL COWARDS

Those who believe say: "Why is not a Surah (chapter of the Qur'an) sent down (for us)? But when a decisive Surah (explaining and ordering things) is sent down, and fighting (Jihad ­ holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is mentioned (i.e. ordained) therein, you will see those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy) looking at you with a look of one fainting to death. But it was better for them (hypocrites, to listen to Allah and to obey Him). (Muhammad 47:20)

They always put dodgy conditions on jihad because they don't want to do jihad.
They even slander the mujahideen.

SIGN # 8: THEY HAVE NO AL WALA WAL BARAA

Whenever there is a jihad taking place, they cheer for the kuffar against the mujahideen.
They can't practise al wala wal bara.
They sit where the deen is being ridiculed.

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur'an) that when you hear the Verses of Allah being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell, (An-Nisa 4:140)

They go to paltalk rooms where people make a mockery of Islam
And they enjoy these gatherings.

SIGN # 9: THEY SPREAD FITNA AMONGST THE MUSLIMS AND PRETEND THEY DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHO STARTED IT

They spread gossip amongst the Muslims.
Whenever they go to the frontline, they spread fitna on the battlefield.

Had they marched out with you, they would have added to you nothing except disorder, and they would have hurried about in your midst (spreading corruption) and sowing sedition among you, and there are some among you who would have listened to them. And Allah is the All-Knower of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.). (At-Tawbah 9:47)

The amir sometimes has to shoot them in the head
A munafiq enjoys fitna.

SIGN # 10: THEY ASSASSINATE THE CHARACTER OF TRUE MUSLIMS

They like to accuse Muslims of being gay, having affairs, prostitution, etc.
The slander of Aisha (ra) was started by a munafiq, Abdullah ibn Ubayy.
When he died Allah reprimanded the Prophet (saw) for praying over him.
He (swt) revealed the ayah below to command him not pray over them

And never (O Muhammad SAW) pray (funeral prayer) for any of them (hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and died while they were Fasiqun (rebellious, - disobedient to Allah and His Messenger SAW). (At-Tawbah 9:84)

It is haram to pray over hypocrites.
Throw their bodies in the bin; don't pray over them.
Umar (ra) used to watch Hudhaifa ibn Yamaan (ra) to see if he prayed over someone.
If Hudhaifa prayed so would Umar.
Because the Prophet told Hudhaifa the names of all the hypocrites in Madinah.

Ibn al-Qayyim (rh) said: The more faith and knowledge a person has, the more he will fear that he may be among this class of people (i.e., hypocrites), hence the leaders and earliest generations of this ummah were so afraid that they might be among them. ‘Umar used to say to Hudhayfah: I adjure you by Allaah, did the Messenger of Allaah (SAW) mention me along with the people (i.e., the hypocrites)? He said: No, but I would not praise anyone after you, meaning; I would not praise people (by saying that they are not mentioned among the hypocrites). It does not mean that ‘Umar was the only one who was free of hypocrisy. Tareeq al-Hijratayn (p. 604) 

SIGN # 11: THEY HIGHTLIGHT THE NEGATIVE ASPECTS OF ISLAMIC HISTORY

They will say if Islam is the truth why was there a fitna
Between Ali (ra) and Muawiyyah (ra)?
When they speak, you can hear doubts coming from their filthy mouths.
All they do is cast doubts on Islam with their speech.

Had We willed, We could have shown them to you, and you should have known them by their marks, but surely, you will know them by the tone of their speech! And Allah knows all your deeds. (Muhammad 47:30)


SIGN # 12: THEY ASK QUESTIONS ONLY ALLAH SWT CAN ANSWER

Why do they ask these questions?
They ask these questions because they are looking for a reason apostate from Islam.


SIGN # 13: THEY LIE ON THEIR HEALTH

They say they couldn't come to Jumuah because they had a severe migraine or back ache.
They will always lie on their health because they know you can't tell he's lying.


SIGN # 14: THEY ARE REBELLIOUS TO QUR'AN AND SUNNAH

Al-Hafiz Abu Ishaq Ibrahim bin `Abdur-Rahman bin Ibrahim bin Duhaym recorded that Damrah narrated that two men took their dispute to the Prophet (SAW), and he gave a judgment to the benefit of whoever among them had the right. The person who lost the dispute said, “I do not agree.” The other person asked him, “What do you want then” He said, “Let us go to Abu Bakr As-Siddiq.” They went to Abu Bakr and the person who won the dispute said, “We went to the Prophet (SAW) with our dispute and he issued a decision in my favor.” Abu Bakr said, “Then the decision is that which the Messenger of Allah (SAW) issued.” The person who lost the dispute still rejected the decision and said, “Let us go to `Umar bin Al-Khattab.” When they went to `Umar, the person who won the dispute said, “We took our dispute to the Prophet (SAW) and he decided in my favor, but this man refused to submit to the decision.” `Umar bin Al-Khattab asked the second man and he concurred. `Umar went to his house and emerged from it holding aloft his sword. He struck the head of the man who rejected the Prophet’s decision with the sword and killed him. Consequently, Allah revealed, [فَلا وَرَبِّكَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّى يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ] `Umar bin Al-Khattab asked the second man and he concurred. `Umar went to his house and emerged from it holding aloft his sword. He struck the head of the man who rejected the Prophet’s decision with the sword and killed him. Consequently, Allah revealed, [فَلا وَرَبِّكَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّى يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ] (But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you judge in all disputes between them... (An-Nisa 4:65)). [Tafseer Ibn Katheer (2/351-352)]

A munafiq is very self-opinionated.
He can't hear and obey.

He likes to raise his voice above the voice of the Prophet.

O you who believe! Raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet (SAW), nor speak aloud to him in talk as you speak aloud to one another, lest your deeds may be rendered fruitless while you perceive not. (Al-Hujurat 49:2)


4. THE FAASIQ

A faasiq is a weak Muslim who commits sins like drinking and zina
He is a sinful Muslim.
We are not allowed to make takfir on a faasiq unless his sin is MAJOR KUFR.
Drinking alcohol and zina is minor kufr not major.
Having girlfriends is minor kufr not major.


5. THE MURTAD

The Murtad is the apostate.
According to shariah law, we are supposed to kill the apostate.
This can only be done in the Islamic State.

But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliya' (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them. (An-Nisa 4:89)

On the authority of Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him." [Sahih Bukhari (4/61) No. 3017, Musnad Ahmad (1/322) No. 2968, Sunan al-Nasa'i (7/104) No. 4059, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/574) No. 2535, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/126) No. 4351, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/59) No. 1458]

It is worthy of mentioning that if a person apostates,
You ask him to come back to Islam and if he comes back you don't kill him.
A Saudi tweeted something about the Prophet (saw) and apostatised.
He ran away to Malaysia and was extradited back to KSA.
He came back to Islam so his life was spared.
The apostate we kill is the one who refuses to come back to Islam.
When you are a Muslim, you have to die as a Muslim.
I hope you don't have any doubts that you are supposed to kill the apostates.



7. KAFIR ASLI

A kaafir asli is a person who was born from kaafir parents and was raised as a kaafir.
For example, a Christian or a Jew.
If a kaafir asli dies as a kaafir and refuses to embrace Islam,
His destiny is in the hellfire to abide forever.
The evidence is Surah 3 verse 85.

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. (Aali Imran 3:85)

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, any Christian or Jew who heard about me and died whilst regecting me, such a person is in the hell fire to abide there forever." [Sahih Muslim (1/134) No. 153 and Musnad Ahmad (2/350) No. 8594]

There is no hope for such a person.


8. MUSHRIK

A mushrik is a pagan, an idolator or a polytheist.
All three words are used for the mushrik.
An example of a mushrik is a Hindu, a Buddhist or a Rastafarian

If a person dies as a mushrik, his destiny is in the hellfire in the hereafter
And there is no hope for that person.
The evidence is Surah Nisa verse 48.

Verily, Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allah in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. (An-Nisa 4:48)


9. ZINDEEQ

A zindeeq is a heretic.
He makes up his own Islam which we call Hislam.
An example of a zindeeq is Mirza Ghulam Ahamad of India.
Or Elijah Pole of Chicago
These are excellent examples of zindeeq.

And when you (Muhammad SAW) see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses (of the Qur'an) by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Shaitan (Satan) causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers, etc.). (Al-An'am 6:68)

The zindeeq goes against the ijma of the Muslims.
If you go against the ijma of the Muslims, you are from the zinaadiqa.

And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell - what an evil destination. (An-Nisa 4:115)


10. THE DEVIANT

A deviant is a person who practises bid'ah (cursed innovations) either in fiqh or aqeeda.
The Prophet (saw) spoke about them.

Abu Hurayrah narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “The Jews were divided into seventy-one or seventy-two sects, and the Christians were divided into seventy-one or seventy-two sects, and my Ummah will be divided into seventy-three sects.” [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/197) No. 4596, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/25) No. 2640, Sunan Ibn Majah (5/128) No. 3991, Musnad Ahmad (2/332) No. 8377]

The 72 sects that enter the hellfire will not go to the hellfire forever.
They will come out with the intercession of Muhammad (SAWS).
This is because a deviant is not a kaafir.
A deviant is a person who went astray with regards to certain aspects of aqeeda or fiqh.
A deviant is a Muslim with some weird ideas.
A deviant is a deviant and a kaafir is a kaafir.

Abdullah ibn Amr (RA) reported that Allah’s Messeenger (SAW) said, “The same things will be faced by my ummah as the Banu Isra’il faced as a shoe compares with (its pairing) shoe, to the extent that if there was anyone of them to have approached his mother (for sexual intercourse) then there will be in my ummah who would do that. And the Banu Isra’il divided into seventy-two sects and my ummah will divide into seventy-three sects, all of whom will go into the Fire except one millat (sect). “The sahabah (RA) asked (him), “Who are they, O Messenger of Allah (SAW)”. He said, “(Who follow) what I am on and my companions (are on).” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/26) No. 2641, Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/218) No. 444]


11. THE AGNOSTIC

An agnostic says maybe Allah exists. He is not sure.
There is no portion in the hereafter for the agnostic.
Certainty is one of the seven conditions of shahada.

Only those are the believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allah. Those! They are the truthful. (Al-Hujurat 49:15)

وقيل لوهب بن منبه: أليس لا إله إلا الله مفتاح الجنة؟ قال: بلى، ولكن ليس مفتاح إلا له أسنان، فإن جئت بمفتاح له أسنان فتح لك، وإلا لم يفتح لك
Wahb ibn Munabbih was once asked, "Isn't the statement of la ilaha illa-llah the key to Paradise?" He answered, "Yes, but every key has ridges. If you come with the key that has the right ridges, the door will open for you. Yet if you do not have the right ridges the door will not open for you.” [Sahih Bukhari, (2/71), al-Asma' wa al-Sifat al-Bayhaqi (1/274), Hilyatul-Awliya Abu-Naeem al-Asbahani (4/66)]


7 CONDITIONS OF SHAHADAH

1. Knowledge of the Shahadah
2. Yaqeen -- You cannot doubt your Shahadah
3. Believe in your heart and testify w/ your tongue [Abu Taalib’s plight]
4. Surrender to Qur’an and Sunnah
5. Sidq [condemns all shades of falsehood]
6. Singularity of devotion
7. Al walaa wal baraa [loving and hating for the sake of Allah swt]

Allah told you that you have to be sure of His existence.


12. THE ATHEIST

An atheist is a person who claims he is sure that Allah does not exist.
He claims it is all a myth.
The agnostic is an atheist who is a coward.
The atheist tells you to your face, Allah doesn't exist.

HOW TO CHECKMATE AN ATHEIST

1 - THE SUN IS SITUATED ABOVE OUR HEADS AT AN ANGLE THAT IS ACCURATE TO SUSTAIN LIFE ON EARTH.

If the Sun was too close, we would die from heat.
If it was too far from us, we would freeze.
If the world came about by accident,
How is the Sun place meticulously above our heads to sustain life on earth?

2 - THE ALTERNATION OF NIGHT AND DAY

Allah (swt) said the alternation of night and day is a sign for men of understanding.
If no one was governing the universe,
We would have 10 years of day alone and 20 years of night alone.

Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding. (Aali Imran 3:190)

The alternation of night and day is not an accident.
Why do we have a systematic alternation of night and day in an orderly manner?
If we had 10 years of night alone, people would start committing suicide.
The weather makes people commit suicide.
Just do a search on the top suicide countries.
I am sure some of the top countries will be countries with cold weather.

3 - THE FOUR SEASONS OF THE YEAR

If the world came about by accident and it continues to exist by accident,
How do you explain the four seasons?

Many of you don't know how to checkmate the atheist.
Many of you have never debated and disgraced an atheist.
An atheist is a fool.
There is no real atheist.

4 - DNA

How do you explain how we all have a different DNA?
If we came about by accident, some of us would have the same DNA.
We all have a different DNA; this is evidence of intelligent design not an accident.

5 - FINGERPRINT

How do you explain to us how we all have a different fingerprint?

6 - IRIS

How do you explain how we all have a different iris in the eye?
People used to borrow other peoples’ passports and travel.
Now they have a system of checking your iris so you can't do this anymore.

7 - EVERY ZEBRA IS DIFFERENT

Every zebra has a different stripe.
The way we have different fingerprints.

8 - HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE PREDICTION IN THE QUR'AN ABOUT THE BODY OF THE PHARAOH?

And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Fir'aun (Pharaoh) with his hosts followed them in oppression and enmity, till when drowning overtook him, he said: "I believe that La ilaha illa (Huwa) : (none has the right to be worshipped but) He," in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am one of the Muslims (those who submit to Allah's Will)." (Yunus 10:90)

Now (you believe) while you refused to believe before and you were one of the Mufsidun (evil-doers, corrupts, etc.). (Yunus 10:91)

So this day We shall deliver your (dead) body (out from the sea) that you may be a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs , revelations, etc.). (Yunus 10:92)

The body of the Pharaoh was lying on the ocean floor for 3000 years.
His body was then found in 1897 intact.
How would an atheist explain this Qur'anic verse?

9 – THE TWO SEAS THAT COME TOGETHER BUT DO NOT MIX

How would an atheist explain the two seas that are mentioned in the Quran?

He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together. (Ar-Rahman 55:19)
Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress. (Ar-Rahman 55:20)
Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? (Ar-Rahman 55:21)

10 - THE LOWEST LAND

The lowest land is Jordan.

Alif ­Lam ­Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (Ar-Rum 30:1)
The Romans have been defeated. (Ar-Rum 30:2)
In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. (Ar-Rum 30:3)
Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians),
(Ar-Rum 30:4)

How would an atheist explain how the Qur'an specifies the lowest land as Jordan?
This is one of the verses that prompted the scientist Maurice Buccaile to embrace Islam.

11 - YOU USE YOUR FOREHEAD TO CONCOCT A LIE

Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, (Al-'Alaq 96:15)
A lying, sinful forelock! (Al-'Alaq 96:16)

How would an atheist explain how the Qur'an specifies that
You use your forehead to concoct a lie?


13. THE PANTHEIST

The pantheist believes there is no difference between The Creator and the creation.
They believe the creation is divine.
So the sun, the moon, the donkey, the cat, etc. are divine.
That's pantheism.
Therefore everything you see is Allah (swt)
And because they believe in pantheism, they worship the sun, the moon and the stars.

And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him. (Fussilat 41:37)


14. THE KHAWAARIJ

The khawaarij are the puritans.
They are a deviant sect from the Muslims.
We call them deviants because Ali (ra) refused to make takfir on them.
They are the very first sect to emerge from the Muslims.

When 'Ali was in Yemen, he sent some gold in its ore to the Prophet. The Prophet distributed it among Al-Aqra' bin Habis Al-Hanzali who belonged to Bani Mujashi, 'Uyaina bin Badr Al-Fazari, 'Alqama bin 'Ulatha Al-'Amiri, who belonged to the Bani Kilab tribe and Zaid AI-Khail At-Ta'i who belonged to Bani Nabhan. So the Quraish and the Ansar became angry and said, "He gives to the chiefs of Najdand leaves us!" The Prophet said, "I just wanted to attract and unite their hearts (make them firm in Islam)." Then there came a man with sunken eyes, bulging forehead, thick beard, fat raised cheeks, and clean-shaven head, and said, "O Muhammad! Be afraid of Allah! " The Prophet said, "Who would obey Allah if I disobeyed Him? (Allah). He trusts me over the people of the earth, but you do not trust me?" A man from the people (present then), who, I think, was Khalid bin Al-Walid, asked for permission to kill him, but the Prophet prevented him. When the man went away, the Prophet said, "Out of the offspring of this man, there will be people who will recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats, and they will go out of Islam as an arrow goes out through the game, and they will kill the Muslims and leave the idolaters. Should I live till they appear, I would kill them as the Killing of the nation of 'Ad." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith #527]

The khawaarij make takfir on Muslims for their sins
Even though no sin can eject us outside the fold of Islam unless if it is major kufr.
The khawaarij do not classify knowledge.
They do not differentiate major kufr from minor kufr.
They paint every kufr with the same brush because they don't classify knowledge.
They say kufr is kufr.

It was narrated that ‘Abdullah said: "Defaming a Muslim is evildoing and fighting him is Kufr." (Sahih Mawquf) [Sunan an-Nasa’i: Vol. 5, Book 37, Hadith 4112]


The ulama say the kufr in the above hadith is minor kufr not major kufr.
Because Allah told us in the Qur'an that Muslims will fight Muslims in Surah 49 verse 9.

And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both, but if one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allah; then if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily! Allah loves those who are equitable. (Al-Hujurat 49:9)

Even though they fight each other, Allah still called them believers.
This is the ayah we use to checkmate the khawaarij.
The verses of the Qur'an that were revealed for the kuffar and the mushrikeen,
The khawaarij apply them to the believers.
The Prophet (saw) said the main sign of the khawaarij is that
They will kill the Muslims and spare the kuffar.

... and they will kill the Muslims and leave the idolaters. Should I live till they appear, I would kill them as the Killing of the nation of 'Ad." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith #527]

Therefore the present day Muslim leaders are khawaarij.
Yet the wicked scholars call the mujahideen khawaarij.


15. THE MURJIA

The scholars call the murjia the postponers
Some scholars call them the liberals.
If they see kufr, they postpone judgement on the kuffar.
So if a murji should hear a man making statements of kufr,
He would never make takfir. They postpone judgement.
They say "We leave it to Allah."
The murji is dangerous because he leaves kuffar in the fold of Islam.
With his aqeeda, you will marry kuffar.
Kuffar will be buried in the graveyard of the Muslims.
Kuffar will inherit the properties of Muslim.
Kuffar will enter Makkah and Madinah.

A murji is very dangerous.
A murji who doesn't pray salah will say ‘who are you to make takfir on me,
I recite the shahada.’
He calls himself a non-practising Muslim.
A murji will tell you actions are not a part of iman.
He will say he doesn't need to practise to be a Muslim.
The Prophet said the lowest branch of iman is to remove a harmful thing from the road.

Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Faith consists of sixty (or seventy) branches. The best of them is 'There is no god but Allah.' The lowest of them is to remove harmful things from the road. Modesty is also a branch of faith.” Bukhari (Al-Adab Al-Mufrad): Book 30, Hadith 598

Yet the murji wants us to believe actions are not a part of iman
The murji will tell you our iman is static; it doesn't go up or down.
But Allah (swt) told us the sahabah grew in iman at the battle of Uhud.

Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)." (Aali Imran 3:173)

A murji will also tell you whenever a person commits an act of major kufr,
He is not a kaafir unless he legitimises the kufr with his tongue.
That is the aqeeda of a Saudi salafi and a saudi salafi is a murji.

What about when the man slept with his father's wife and he was killed as a kafir without interrogation?

Narrated By Al-Bara' ibn Azib: I met my uncle who was carrying a standard. I asked him: 'Where are you going?' He said: 'The Apostle of Allah (SAW) has sent me to a man who has married his father's wife. He has ordered me to cut off his head and take his property.' [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/157) No. 4457, Sunan al-Nasa'i (6/109) No. 3332, Sunan al-Darime (2/205) No. 2239, Musnad Ahmad (4/290) No. 18580]

They apply the rules of the leader to the laymen and the rules of the laymen to the rulers.
A murji will tell you that you have wine in your fridge at home
So you didn't govern by what Allah revealed at home.
They say we don't make takfir on you so you can't make takfir on the rulers.
A murji gives the excuse of ignorance for people who worship false deities
Claiming they don't know better.
This aqeeda of theirs contradicts the Qur'an.

And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying) : "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes! We testify," lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "Verily, we have been unaware of this." (Al-A'raf 7:172)

So on that Day no excuse of theirs will avail those who did wrong (by associating partners in worship with Allah, and by denying the Day of Resurrection), nor will they be allowed (then) to return to seek Allah's Pleasure (by having Islamic Faith with righteous deeds and by giving up polytheism, sins and crimes with repentance). (Ar-Rum 30:57)

Narrated from Anas (RA) that a man said: “O Messenger of Allah, where is my father?” He said: “In Hell.” When he turned away he called him back and said: “My father and your father are in Hell.” [Sahih Muslim (Vol. 1, pg. 191) No. 203]


16. THE MU'TAZILA

They are the rationalists.
They give preference to reason over revelation.
They give preference to the aql over the naql.
The naql means the book, the revelation.
The first mu'tazila in history was the shaitaan.
When he was told to bow down to Adam,
He refused because he was not intellectually convinced.

(Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)

Another mu'tazila in history was the son of Prophet Nuh (AS).
He did not board the ship with his father
Because he believed the mountain was tall enough to save him from the wrath of Allah.
His aql told him the mountain was tall enough to save him from the punishment of Allah.

The son replied: "I will betake myself to a mountain, it will save me from the water." Nuh (Noah) said: "This day there is no saviour[] from the Decree of Allah except him on whom He has mercy." And a wave came in between them, so he (the son) was among the drowned. (Hud 11:43)

It was said by Ali ibn Abi Talib (ra), our religion is not based on aql.

Ali (RA) observed, "If the religion was based on opinion, the bottom of the sock would take preference in being wiped to the top of the sock." [Related by Abu Dawud (1/90) No. 162 and ad-Daraqutni (1/378) No. 783 with a hassan or sahih chain.]

There is no room in Islam for the mu'tazila.
We hear and we obey.
I don't know why we wipe the top of the head in wudu but we still do it
We hear and we obey.

It was narrated that ‘Aishah (RA) said: When the Messenger of Allah (SAW) did ghusl for janaabah, he would wash his hands and do wudoo’ as for prayer, then he would wash himself, then he would run his fingers through his hair, then when he thought that it [the water] had reached his skin, he would pour water over it [the head] three times, then he would wash the rest of his body. [al-Bukhari (248) and Muslim (316)]

Allah said to wipe your head so we hear and we obey.


17. THE RAAFIDA (THE SHIA)

They are called the raafida because they reject the sahabah.
They make takfir on the sahabah.
They believe all the sahabah are kuffar except for 3.

SHIA HUJJAH: (Imam) Abu Ja'far [as]said: The people were people of apostacy after the Prophet save three. I said (the narrator): Who are these three? He said: al-Miqdad bin al-Aswad, Abu Tharr al-Ghafari and Salmaan the Persian ....and that is the meaning of His saying: 3:144. Muhammad is no more than a Messenger: many were the Messengers that passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will ye then turn back on your heels? [Rijaal al-Kash-shi: pp. 12-13. From:Ash-Shi’a WasSunnah, Ehsan Elahi Zaheer, p.49]

The founder of the shiite movement was a Jew called Abdullah ibn Saba.
He tried to do to Islam what Paul did to Christianity.
The raafida also believe that Aisha (ra) had an affair even though Allah said she didn't.
A raafida is always trying to veto Allah.

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment. (An-Nur 24:11)

You are going to see many pictures of the dawlah decapitating people.
Now you know why.
The worst people on the face of the earth are the raafida.

SHIA HUJJAH: The Shia believe that at the time of Mahdi’s return Imam Mahdi will resurrect Aisha (Prophet Mohammad’s wife) and execute the law of Hudud on her, for committing Zina (adultery) during her marriage. (Al-Anwar Al-Numaniyah, vol. 1, p.  161, Tafsir al-Shafi, vol. 2, p. 108, Haq al-Yaqeen, vol. 2, p. 256, Hayat al-Qulub, vol. 2, p. 611)

The raafida also believe the Qur'an is corrupted.

Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur'an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). (Al-Hijr 15:9)

So even though Allah said He will protect the Qur'an, the shiites say we beg to differ.

SHIA HUJJAH: The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)

SHIA HUJJAH: It is a fundamental principle of faith that our (Shia) Imams have ranks higher than the ranks of angels & God's prophets. (Khomeini's book, Hukuma Islamiya, p. 52)

The Shias believe their imams are above Allah, the prophets and the angels.

SHIA HUJJAH: It is a fundamental principle of faith that our (Shia) Imams have ranks higher than the ranks of angels & God's prophets. (Khomeini's book, Hukuma Islamiya, p. 52)

The shiites believe Allah is a liar who makes mistakes.

SHIA HUJJAH: “Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]

The shiites used to call America the great Satan.
When the dawlah was established, Obama wrote ayatollah khamini a letter
To ask him help to fight the dawlah.
They joined the coalition to fight the dawlah.
A shia is a hyena - a greedy opportunist.
He has no honour and no prestige.
If you want to know what a shia is look at the hyena.
They grab every opportunity to kill sunnis.
So when Obama wrote them a letter to bomb sunnis,
They grabbed the opportunity with both hands.
A hyena is not a dog nor a cat.
They belong to their own species.
Likewise the raafida are not people of the book and they are not Muslims.
They belong to their own religion.
The worst human being on the face of the earth is the raafida.


  
Question 1: What's the difference between Kuffar and mushrik.?

Answer 1: The Christians and Jews are called kuffar and they are allowed to live in the Islamic State as long as they pay jizya.
People like Sikhs and Buddhists are mushrikeen.
The idol worshippers are called mushrikeen.
The Hindu is the worst mushrik.


Question 2: What is strongest opinion regarding salatul jumuah in Dar ul kufr?

Answer 2: You should perform salatul jumuah in daarul kufr.
Because Allah (swt) said to fear Him to the best of your ability.
The Prophet said fear Allah wherever you may be.

On the authority of Abu Dharr Jundub ibn Junadah, and Abu Abdur-Rahman Muadh bin Jabal (RA), that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: Have taqwa (fear) of Allah wherever you may be, and follow up a bad deed with a good deed which will wipe it out, and behave well towards the people. It was related by at-Tirmidhi, who said it was a hasan (good) hadith, and in some copies it is stated to be a hasan saheeh hadith. FORTY HADITH #18

You should give sadaqah in daarul kufr and get married and divorced
There too in accordance to the rules of shariah.


Question 3: What is the position of the munafiqin who attacked daula a year ago on January 3rd?

Answer 3: Whosoever attacked the dawlah because
They were confused and are held as POWs,
You can seek their repentance and you can forgive them.

Whosoever attacked the dawlah because they hated shariah,
They have become apostates and should be killed as such.
If a raafidha or a nusayri attacks the dawlah,
He should be killed and you shouldn't seek his repentance
Because these people are evil personified.


Question 4: How do we refute people who use the argument of the Ethiopian king (The Negus) to defend their apostate rulers?

Answer 4: We say to them we have no evidence to prove
The Ethiopian king ruled by oppressive laws.
The Prophet told the sahabah to go to Ethiopia
Because there is a king in whose land no man is oppressed.
So if he didn't oppress the people before he heard about Islam,
What makes you think he oppressed them after?
What makes you think the Prophet would send his sahabah
To a land which is ruled under tyranny?
You are insulting the Prophet (SAWS)
This is how you checkmate a saudi salafi.


Question 5: What classification do the Tablighis fall into? I noticed that they have qualities from more than one class. Is it possible to be more than one?  

Answer 5: The tablighi jamaah are ashaaira. We will cover them in the next dars inshaAllah.


Question 6: My job takes me away from home to the sea for long periods of time, is it all right to miss dhur because of this?

Answer 6: In your situation you have to pray salatul dhur.
Because you are travelling you have to join your salah.


Question 7: Would Catholics be considered people of the book or mushrik? Although they are Christian they pray to idols and saints.

Answer 7: There is no doubt that every kaafir is a mushrik and every mushrik is a kaafir.
The Islamic scholars classify Jews and Christians as kuffar
And idol worshippers as mushrikeen.
The Jews and Christians are specially classified
Because we can marry their women and eat their slaughter.
The Zoroastrians are mushrikeen as well.
The Jews and Christians also have a book - the Torah and the Injeel,
So they are called kuffar.
The Buddhist and the Hindus have no books.
So they are called mushrikeen.
This is the difference between calling people kuffar and mushrikeen.
But at the end of the day every kaafir is a mushrik and every mushrik is a kaafir.
Only you the Muslim are saved from shirk.

They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilah (God - Allah) La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)[]. Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)." (At-Tawbah 9:31)


Question 8: You mentioned the hyena. Is it allowed to eat them? Because Imam Hanifa (rh) said: "no" if I remember. Anything else to say about hyenas? I have family in regions with many hyenas in Africa.

Answer 8: I was taught by my university that hyena meat is halal.
Allah (swt) knows best


Question 9: Can you enlighten more on the murji?

The murji is very very important.
They are called postponers.
They postpone judgement on the kuffar.
If he hears a person speaking kufr, he postpones takfeer and says he leaves it to Allah.
Because of this they are called postponers.
Some scholars call them liberals because they take a liberal view of Islam.
The murji will say actions are not a part of Islam so I do not have to practise to be a Muslim.
They call themselves non-practising Muslims.

Ibn Abbas (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Two groups of my Ummah have no share in Islam the Murji'a and the Qadariyah." [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/454) No. 2149 and Sunan Ibn Majah (1/42) No. 62]

The murji believes our actions are not a part of iman even though the Prophet said
To remove a harmful thing from the road is a branch of iman
 
Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Faith consists of sixty (or seventy) branches. The best of them is 'There is no god but Allah.' The lowest of them is to remove harmful things from the road. Bukhari (Al-Adab Al-Mufrad): Book 30, Hadith 598

The murji also claims our iman is static.
It doesn't go up or down.
Even though Allah said He caused the believers to grow in iman.

Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)." (Aali Imran 3:173)

The murji gives the excuse of ignorance for people who worship a false deity.

And [mention] when your Lord took from the children of Adam - from their loins - their descendants and made them testify of themselves, [saying to them], "Am I not your Lord?" They said, "Yes, we have testified." [This] - Lest you should say on the day of Resurrection, "Indeed, we were of this unaware." Al-A'raf 7:172) Sahih International

Allah took away our excuse of ignorance.

So on that Day no excuse of theirs will avail those who did wrong (by associating partners in worship with Allah, and by denying the Day of Resurrection), nor will they be allowed (then) to return to seek Allah's Pleasure (by having Islamic Faith with righteous deeds and by giving up polytheism, sins and crimes with repentance). (Ar-Rum 30:57)

Narrated from Anas (RA) that a man said: “O Messenger of Allah, where is my father?” He said: “In Hell.” When he turned away he called him back and said: “My father and your father are in Hell.” [Sahih Muslim (Vol. 1, pg. 191) No. 203]

The scholars use the hadith with the Prophet's father to checkmate the murjia.
The Prophet's father died before the Prophet was born
Yet he is in the hellfire
Why? Because there is no excuse for worshipping a false deity.

The murji says whenever a man commits major kufr,
He is not a kaafir unless he legitimises it with his tongue.
This is what the saudi salafis preach.

Narrated By Al-Bara' ibn Azib: I met my uncle who was carrying a standard. I asked him: 'Where are you going?' He said: 'The Apostle of Allah (SAW) has sent me to a man who has married his father's wife. He has ordered me to cut off his head and take his property. [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/157) No. 4457, Sunan al-Nasa'i (6/109) No. 3332, Sunan al-Darime (2/205) No. 2239, Musnad Ahmad (4/290) No. 18580]

Ibn Kahtir said we know the man was killed as a kaafir because his property was confiscated.

Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullah Ibn Baaz said: "There is no Eeman for the one who believes the laws of the people and their opinions are superior to the Hukm of Allah and His Messenger or that they are equal to it or that they resemble it or who leaves it or replaces it with fabricated laws and institutions invented by people, even if he believes that the laws of Allah are more encompassing and more just." [Wujoob Tah'keem Shari'ah Allah' (pg. 16-17)]

Bin Baaz said he doesn't give a damn what's in your heart.
A saudi salafi will say when the king dismantles the shariah
He is still a Muslim because he didn't legitimise it with his tongue.
Many of you don't know how to debate.
When they come with their kufr, always remember this fatwa of Bin Baaz.
You don't acquaint yourself with the fatawa of the classical scholars.
The saudi scholars claim to follow Bin Baaz.
It's like a Hanafi who believes Allah is everywhere.
Abu Hanifa used to make takfir on people who believe Allah is everywhere.
It's the pantheists who believe Allah is everywhere.
They say everything is Allah.
So they preach Allah is everywhere.

Imam Abu Hanifa (d. 150) says in his Wasiyya: "Had He been in a place and needing to sit and rest before creating the Throne, then the question "Where was Allah?" would have applied to Him, which is impossible. We assert that Allah is established on the throne without His need (haja) nor settlement (istiqrar) upon it, for He it is Who preserves the Throne and other than it without needing any of them." [Abu Hanifa, Wasiyyat al-imam al-a`zam Abu Hanifa, ed. Fu'ad `Ali Rida (Beirut : Maktabat al-Jamahir, 1970) p. 10.]

Abu Haneefah (rh) said, when asked of his opinion of the one who says, ‘I do not know whether Allah is above the heavens or on the earth.’ - “He has disbelieved, because Allah says, “The Most Merciful rose above the Throne,” and His Throne is above His seven heavens.’ He was then asked, ‘what if he said that Allah is above His Throne but he does not know whether the Throne is in the heavens or on the earth?’ He said, ‘He has disbelieved, because He has denied that He is above the heavens, And whosoever denied that He is above the heavens has disbelieved.” (‘Sharh Usul I'tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah’ of al-Laalikaaee (d.414AH), ‘al-Uluww’ of adh- Dhahabee, also ‘Sharh Aqueedah at-Tahaawiyyah’ of ibn Abee al-Izz al-Hanafee)

Those people who call themselves hanafis and believe Allah is everywhere, they are liars.
They don't follow Abu Hanifa.
The tablighi jamaah and the barelvis say Allah is everywhere.
You are not hanafi.
Abu Hanifa is innocent of you and you are innocent of Abu Hanifa.
It's like a Christian who says he follows Jesus (as) yet he eats pork.


Question 10: If we are in a gathering where the deen is being insulted by kuffaar only to defend Islam and debunk the lies is that still wrong?

Answer 10: You are not considered wrong when you want to defend Islam.
You are only doing wrong when you enjoy the gathering.
If you debunk the kuffar you are not doing wrong.

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur'an) that when you hear the Verses of Allah being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell, (An-Nisa 4:140)


Let's Call A Spade A Spade - Part 2
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

NOTES TYPED LIVE BY AT19
EDITED AND FORMATTED BY AT38

18. JAHMIYYA

They are followers of Jahm ibn Safwan
They deny Allah (swt)’s 99 Names and Attributes
They claim every name is another God
Ex: Allah is one God
Ar-Rahman is second God
Ar-Raheem is a third God

They also claim that Allah (swt) doesn't speak
Because if Allah spoke, He would be like a man
They also claim Allah cannot see because if He did He would be like a man

A man named Ja’d Ibn Dirham lost his life for this
On eid day, the Governor of Iraq gathered the people and said to them
To bring out their animals to slaughter
Because he was going to slaughter Ja'd ibn Dirham
Because he denied that Allah took Abraham (as) as a friend
And denied that Allah spoke to Musa (as)
So he was killed as it was mentioned in the story below

'Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Muhammad Ibn Habeeb Ibn Abee Habeeb on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather [who] said: I witnessed Khaalid Ibn 'Abdullah Al-Qasree - and he addressed them at Waasit - "Oh People, make sacrifice, may Allah accept it from you. Verily I am sacrificing Al-Ja'd Ibn Dirham, for indeed he claims that Allah did not take Ibrahim as a khaleel (close friend), and [that] He did not speak to Moosa. Most Perfect is He and exalted is He from what Al-Ja'd says." Then he descended and slaughtered him. I say: And the Jahmiyyah and Mu'tazilah speak with this, and they distort the text of the revelation regarding that, and they claim that the Lord is purified of that (i.e. having spoken to Moses and taken Ibrahim as a khalil). [Mukhtasar al-Uluww of adh-Dhahabi, (p.134)]

It is worthy of mentioning that the Mu’tazila deny Allah's 99 names and attributes
Like the Jahmiyyah, the Mutaliza are the rationalists

The claim to be the people of tawheed,
And that is why they say they believe in Allah alone and deny the other 99 Names
This is the ideology of the Mutazila and the Jahmiyyah


19. ASHAA'IRA

They are called the philosophers
They are a splinter group who broke away from the Mutazila

Who are the Ashaa'ira of today?
They are the Sufi, Berailvis, Shia, Tablighi Jamaat
The Ashaa'ira deny that Allah (swt) has two hands
And they call you a wahabi and that you give Allah human body parts
We say to them, ‘Allah doesn't have a body, so we don't give Him human body parts
What Allah has is a dhaat (Allah's person)
It is shirk to use a body to describe Allah (swt)
Therefore Allah has a face, two eyes and two hands
To deny that Allah has two hands is contradicting the Quran
Because Allah said in 38:75:

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

We say to the Ashaa'ira the clock has two hands
But they don't resemble your hands
Likewise, Allah has two hands but they don't resemble our hands

By this means He creates you (in the wombs). There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

When you deny Allah has two hands, you are not praising Allah
To praise Allah, you have to believe that Allah has two hands but
They don't resemble the hands of His creations
That is how you praise Allah
You cannot praise Allah by saying Allah doesn't hear, see or speak

The man who got his head chopped off used to tell the people of Iraq Allah is a mute
When the people of Iraq ask how Musa (as) heard Allah, he said
Allah created the voice by the bush and Musa heard the voice

And Messengers We have mentioned to you before, and Messengers We have not mentioned to you, - and to Mûsa (Moses) Allāh spoke directly. (An-Nisa 4:164)

The Ashaa'ira has kufr and shirk on their minds
If their hearts and minds were pure they would believe that Allah has two hands
But they don't resemble our hands
But because their hearts and minds are corrupted, they make Allah similar to His creation
And as a result deny His 99 names and attributes

The Ashaa'ira claim Allah is everywhere in person
We say to them, you are insulting Allah with this claim
Because some places are holy and other places are unholy
To say Allah is everywhere in person, you are insulting Him with your claim
We say to them, you claim to be Hanifis, Malikis and Shafis
None of these great Imams (rh) claimed Allah is everywhere
All of them said to believe Allah is above the arsh is wajib

Abu Haneefah (rh) said, when asked of his opinion of the one who says, ‘I do not know whether Allah is above the heavens or on the earth.’ - “He has disbelieved, because Allah says, “The Most Merciful rose above the Throne,”and His Throne is above His seven heavens.’ He was then asked , ‘what if he said that Allah is above His Throne but he does not know whether the Throne is in the heavens or on the earth?’ He said, ‘He has disbelieved, because He has denied that He is above the heavens, And whosoever denied that He is above the heavens has disbelieved.” (‘Sharh Usul I’tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah’ of al-Laalikaaee (d.414AH), ‘al-Uluww’ of adh- Dhahabee, also ‘Sharh Aqueedah at-Tahaawiyyah’ of ibn Abee al-Izz al-Hanafee)

Ja'far Ibn Abdullah narrated: We were with Malik Ibn Anas when a man came to him and said: “O Abu Abdullah (Allah said) 'Ar-Rahman upon the Throne Istawa' (20:5), how was His Istiwa? Imam Malik inclined his head and was silent until the sweat of fever covered his brow, then he looked up and said: "Istiwa is not unknown, the Kayf (how) is uncomprehendable, believing in it is wajib (obligatory), and asking about it is bid'ah (innovation), and I do not think that you are anything but an innovator." Then he ordered that the man be expelled. [Abu-Naeem Al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul-Awliya wa Tabaqat Al-Asfiya' (Vol. 6, pg. 325-326)]

Imam Shafi'i (rh) said: This is the evidence that Allah the Most High is above the Arsh, without specificity known to us, and He is away from His creation. There is none comparable to His and He is the All-Hearing the All-Seeing.[Tafseer al-Imam ash-Shafi'i (3/1063)]

Imam Ash-Shafi'ee[47]Imam ash-Shafi'ee said:"The creed which I hold is the same creed the Muslims before me were holding, namely, the Testimony of Faith: "There is no god worthy of being worshipped except Allah, that Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah, and that Allah is above His 'Arsh, above the heavens. He descends to the lowest heaven whenever He wishes."[48]

[47] Abdullah Muhammad bin Idris ash-Shafi'ee one of the prominent four Imams. Prominent jusrit (150-204 H).[48] Al-Juyoosh al-Islamiyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim, p.93

The Ashaa'ira don't believe Allah descends every night

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA), who said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: 'Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?'" [al-Bukhari (7494) (also by Muslim (758), Malik (619), at-Tirmidhi (3498) and Abu Dawud (1315)]

Why is every Sufi a Ashaa'ira?
Because the whole purpose of practicing Sufism is to obtain wahdatul wujood (union).
Union means a man becomes so pious to become one with Allah
So they can't afford to believe otherwise in order to facilitate the union
They have to believe Allah is everywhere in order for the union to take place
When you go for 40 days with the Tablighi Jamaat they quote from Ibn Arabee
Ibn Arabee was the Sufi who introduced the concept of union to the Muslims
No one practiced/preached this before him


20.  JABRIYYAH

He is called the fatalist
They preach that man cannot escape qadr
If a man drinks alcohol or commits zina it is qadr Allah for what he did
They believe man should be stripped of accountability

According to Shariah law only six people can be stripped of accountability
The child, sleeping man, mad man, slip of the tongue (mistake), man under duress, jahil
These six above are stripped of accountability
When we say jahil, we mean jahil in regards to fiqh matters

Ibn 'Abbas (RA) the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Verily Allah has pardoned [or been lenient with] for me my Ummah: their mistakes, their forgetfulness, and that which they have been forced to do under duress." [Sunan Ibn Majah (3/200) No. 2045, al-Mu’jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (11/133) No. 11274, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (7/584) No. 15094, Sunan al-Daraqutni (5/300) No. 4351]

Ali reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, "The pen has been raised for three persons (meaning they are not held accountable for what they do): one who is sleeping until he gets up, a child until he reaches the age of puberty, and an insane person until he becomes sane." [Musnad Ahmad (1/154) No. 1327, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/140) No. 4402, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/32) No. 1423, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/198) No. 2041, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (5/265) No. 5596, Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/67) No. 2350]

Narrated By Ali ibn AbuTalib: AbuZubyan said: A woman who had committed adultery was brought to Umar. He gave orders that she should be stoned. Ali passed by just then. He seized her and let her go. Umar was informed of it. He said: Ask Ali to come to me. Ali came to him and said: Commander of the Faithful, you know that the Apostle of Allah (SAW) said: There are three (people) whose actions are not recorded: A boy till he reaches puberty, a sleeper till he awakes, a lunatic till he is restored to reason. This is an idiot (mad) woman belonging to the family of so and so. Someone might have done this action with her when she suffered the fit of lunacy. Umar said: I do not know. Ali said: I do not know. [Abu Dawud, Book 33, Hadith #4388]

They want us to believe if a man should commit a crime he should not be held accountable
Because Allah (swt) predestined for the man to commit the crime
When Umar (ra) was the Caliph a man stole and blamed it on Qadr
Umar (ra) chopped off his hand as stated below

It is reported that a man stole, he said to Umar: "I stole because this was the Qada’ of Allah (Divine Will of Allah)." Umar said to him: "I am going to chop off your hand because it was the Qada’ of Allah (Divine Will of Allah)." [Ibn Taymiyyah in ‘Minhaj as-Sunnah an-Nabawiyyah’ (3/234)]

The above hadith shows that the man tried to use qadr as an excuse for his crime

The definition of qadr is Allah's secret knowledge of the future and
His documentation of that perfect knowledge
No one is allowed to commit crimes and blame qadr
Because qadr doesn’t mean you are stripped of your free will.


21. QADARIYYAH

This person denies Qadr
Qadr is one of the six pillars or Iman
They claim if a man should kill a man or a man rapes a woman,
How can Allah (swt) predestine that?
They say Allah didn't predestine anything
When you debate with them they make you feel guilty about your aqeeda
They will bring up Bush and Blair, no weapons of mass destruction were found
And you say Allah predestined that?
We say to the qadariyyah, qadr is Allah's documentation of His knowledge
When Allah documented His knowledge, He did not force the man to do the crime
Allah (swt) did not take away man’s free will

He asked “O Muhammad, what is faith”? He said, “It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His Books, His Messengers (peace be upon them all), in the Last Day and in Predestination of good and evil.” [Bukhari 47, Muslim 4, Tirmidhi 2619, Abu Dawud 4695, Nisai 5005, Ibn Majah 63, Ahmed 184]

When you deny qadr, you have left the fold of Islam

Ata' bin Abi Rabah said, "I went to Ibn 'Abbas and found him drawing water from the well of Zamzam. The bottom of his clothes was wet with the water of Zamzam and I said to him, 'They talked about Al-Qadar (some denied it).' He asked, 'Have they done this?' I said, 'Yes.' He said, 'By Allah! This Ayah was revealed only about them, ("Taste you the touch of Hell!" Verily, We have created all things with Qadar.) They are the worst members of this Ummah. Do not visit those who fall ill among them or pray the Funeral prayer for those among them who die. If I saw one of them, I would pluck out his eyes with these two fingers of mine." [Tafsir Ibn Kathir (7/483), Tafsir Ibn Abi Hatim (10/3321) No. 18715, Ithaf al-Khiyarah al-Maharah al-Busayri (6/280) No. 5846, its narrators are Thiqat (trustworthy)]

Ibn Abbas (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Two groups of my Ummah have no share in Islam the Murji'a and the Qadariyah." [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/454) No. 2149 and Sunan Ibn Majah (1/42) No. 62]


22. PARVEZI

Gulam Parvez started this movement
Some call them the Quranites
In English they are called the Quraniyoon
They are the hadith rejecters
Those who believe in the Quran but not Hadith
They call themselves the Quraniyioon
Refute the Parvezis by saying don't think it is just the hadith alone that you reject
You are guilty of rejecting Quran and Hadith
If you were a believer in Quran, consequently you would believe in hadith
Because you were commanded by Allah in the Quran to follow hadith in the following verses

Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Aali Imran 3:31)

And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. (Al-Hashr 59:7)

With clear signs and Books (We sent the Messengers). And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad SAW) the reminder and the advice (the Qur'an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. (An-Nahl 16:44)

We say to them, if it wasn't for hadith you wouldn't know how to pray
Because Allah did not teach us how to pray in the Quran
We learned how to pray from hadith
And we learned how to make Hajj from the hadith
We learned how to do Jihad from Hadith
We learn how to marry and divorce from hadith
We learned from hadith how to make wudu and ghusl properly
We learned from hadith that gold and silk is haram for men
We learned from hadith that you cannot marry the aunt and the niece
And live with them at the same time
We learned from hadith that sadaqul fitr is fard
That is the sadaqa you pay when you fast for Ramadhan
Before the imam takes the mimbar on eid day
We learned from hadith to take jizya from Zoroastrians
We learned many things from hadith,
This is why Allah (swt) said He revealed the Quran to Muhammad (saw)
For him (saw) to explain it to the people

With clear signs and Books (We sent the Messengers). And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad SAW) the reminder and the advice (the Qur'an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. (An-Nahl 16:44)

Muhammad (saw) used hadith to explain Quran


23. SAUDI SALAFI (AKA MADKHALI)

A Saudi Salafi is a so called Muslim who believes that
The king of Saudi Arabia is the leader for all Muslims
And that there is Sharia in Saudi Arabia
And anyone who criticises the king is a khawaarij
They deny tawheed hakimiyyah
They claim it is a bidah
It is not a principle of the deen
Tawheed Hakimiyyah means Allah (swt) is the only law giver
They contradict the Quran by claiming
Those who dismantle the shariah are still Muslims

And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers. (Al-Ma’idah 5:44)

Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) said: “And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Shariah other than the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it.” [Majmua al-Fataawa (28/524)]

Whenever a leader accepts the laws of the UN he has become a kaffir
The only law we accept is sharia law
The UN is anti-Muslim

“So whoever leaves the clear Shari’ah, which was revealed to Muhammad Ibn Abdullah, the Seal of the Prophets, and takes the Hukm to other than it from the laws of Kufr which are abrogated, he has disbelieved. So what about the one who takes the Hukm to the ‘Yasiq’
(the law of the Tartars which mixed Shari’ah rulings with invented rulings) and puts it before it?! Whoever does that, he has disbelieved by the Ijmaa’ of the Muslims.” – “Al-Bidaayah wa Nihaayah”, Vol. 13/118-119.

Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullah Ibn Baaz said: "There is no Eeman for the one who believes the laws of the people and their opinions are superior to the Hukm of Allah and His Messenger or that they are equal to it or that they resemble it or who leaves it or replaces it with fabricated laws and institutions invented by people, even if he believes that the laws of Allah are more encompassing and more just." [Wujoob Tah'keem Shari'ah Allah' (pg. 16-17)]

The Saudi Salafi doesn't practice kufr bit taghoot (to reject the taghoot)
They are in bed with the taghoot
They joined the coalition with the taghoot against the dawla
They claim to follow Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab (rh)
But Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab is innocent of them

He put together 10 things that cause one to become a kaafir
Number eight is helping the kuffaar against the Muslims

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab, may Allah have mercy on him, gathered ten actions that negate one's Islam (Nawaqid ul-'Ashr), the eighth one of which states: "Assisting the disbelievers (against the believers) (Mudhaharatul Mushrikeen) and supporting them against the believers (is from the actions that negates of one's faith). The Proof being the statement of Allah, "And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust). (The Quran 5:51)."

Every scholar they claim to follow, we can bring the proof to show that
They do not follow him and they are liars and hypocrites
A Saudi Salafi rejects tawheed hakimiyyah
Al walaa wal baraa, kufr bit taghoot, fiqh ul waqi
Jihad, shariah and khilafa

What is their hukm?
Their hukm is that they are kuffaar and major hypocrites
Because they are cementing the thrones of the apostate leaders
And because of the following fatwa of Ibn Hazm (rh)

Ibn Hazm Stated in Al-Muhalla (11/138): "What is correct is that His statement, the Most High, "And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them." (The Quran 5:51), should be understood on the basis of its apparent meaning. The person being referred to is a disbeliever from the generality of disbelievers, and no two Muslims disagree regarding this."


Question 1: I work in a restaurant which sells alcohol, it's an Indian restaurant, can I still work in this restaurant? I work in the kitchen and do deliveries too. jazakAllah khair

Answer 1: You are living in darul harb/kufr not in darul Islam
Therefore, you can work at this place as long as you do not drink alcohol
Whenever you are living in darul Harb you are now allowed to implement shariah


Question 2: Which group of those listed has the most dangerous ʿAqīdah?

Answer 2: I think the Saudi Salafis are the most dangerous
Because they paint their kufr with a color that is not easy to see
They make their falsehood look like the truth
And they are funded by the Saudi regime
Their kufr is not clear like the other groups
It's difficult for a new revert to know the difference because he doesn't understand tawheed
So they prey on the reverts


Question 3: Assalama Alaikum. Is it wrong for an older woman (60) to have men on her FB page to gain knowledge? Also to obtain information of the dawlah and what is going on in IS?

Answer 3: It is not wrong if there is no fear of fitna
If the fear of fitna is eliminated, it's not haram

NOTES TYPED LIVE BY AT19
EDITED AND FORMATTED BY AT38

We are covering groups which some are good and others are a cancers in the body of the Ummah


24. SALAFI JIHADI

There are two types of Salafis
There is the Saudi Salafi and the Salafi Jihadi
What is the difference and why do they hate each other?
What are the differences in their creed (aqeedah)?
The Saudi Salafi supports the regime of Saudi Arabia
They believe the king the rightful leader for the muslims
They believe to dismantle the shariah is a minor kufr
They went against the ijma of the ummah
They rely on the hadith ‘kufr duna kufr’ which is a weak hadith
Kufr duna kufr means a minor kufr

Ibn Abbas (RA) who said; "It is not the Kufr which you are thinking about; it is not the Kufr which removes you from the Millah, [And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kafirun]. It is kufr lesser than (greater) kufr.” [Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/343) No. 3219]

Ibn Kathir (rh) said: “So Whosoever abandons the wise Shariah which was revealed upon Muhammad ibn Abdullah, the seal of the prophets, and goes to other abrogated Shariah for judgment, he becomes a Kaafir. So how about the one who goes to al-Yaasiq (man-made law) for judgment and gives it precedence (over the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW). Whosoever does this has become a Kaafir by the Ijma of the Muslims.” [Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah, (Vol. 13, p119)]

The Saudi Salafi also believe you can spy for the taghoot against the Muslim
They work with the CIA, FBI, MI5 etc against the Muslim
They call the Mujahideen Khuwarij and terrorist

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab, may Allah have mercy on him, gathered ten actions that negate one's Islam (Nawaqid ul-'Ashr), the eighth one of which states: "Assisting the disbelievers (against the believers) (Mudhaharatul Mushrikeen) and supporting them against the believers (is from the actions that negates of one's faith). The Proof being the statement of Allah, "And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust). (The Quran 5:51)." 

They say fiqh ul waqi is unimportant
Fiqh ulwaqi means current events on the ground
They claim when you commit major kufr you are not a kaafir until
You make the kufr halal with your tongue
This is the creed of a Saudi Salafi

WHAT IS THE CREED OF A SALAFI JIHADI

The only real Muslim on the face of the earth is a Salafi Jihadi
This is the only correct creed
If you don't have the creed of a Salafi Jihadi, you are a fake Muslim
A Salafi Jihadi believes in tawheed hakimiyyah
Whilst the hypocrites claim it is not a principle of the deen

A Salafi Jihadi rejects the taghoot
Taghoot means false deity and also manmade isms and schisms
They reject the taghoot because of the following ayah:

There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:256)

When you believe in Allah (swt) you are practicing half of the shahada
To be a real Muslim, you have to reject the taghoot
And then believe in Allah as Allah told you in the above Ayah
Allah (swt) spoke about the taghoot in 4:60

Have you seen those (hypocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Taghut (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaitan (Satan) wishes to lead them far astray. (An-Nisa 4:60)

The taghoot is the kaafir Army (like the UN)
The UN says they are the legislative body for the whole of mankind
They also say polygamy is oppression for women and is barbaric
The taghoot is the kaafir court house
The taghoot is the kaafir institution
The taghoot is all false religions

Umar said, “al-Jibt is magic, and the Taghoot is the Shaitan.” [Sahih Bukhari (6/45)]

Anything that has to do with shaitan is taghoot.

The Salafi Jihadi practices loving and hating for the sake of Allah (swt)
This is called al walaa wal baraa
While a Saudi Salafi loves for dunya
The Salafi Jihadi loves and hates for the sake of Allah because of 58:22

You (O Muhammad SAW) will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Ruh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah is pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Verily, it is the Party of Allah that will be the successful. (Al-Mujadilah 58:22)

They also rely on 60:1

O you who believe! Take not My enemies and your enemies (i.e. disbelievers and polytheists, etc.) as friends, showing affection towards them, while they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the truth (i.e. Islamic Monotheism, this Qur'an, and Muhammad SAW), and have driven out the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) and yourselves (from your homeland)
(Al-Mumtahinah 60:1)

Anyone who is an enemy to Allah, they become your enemy also
And you are not allowed to take them (the enemies of Your Lord) for your friend
Prophet Abraham (as) is the best example for Al walaa wal baraa
This is why people refer al walaa wal baraa to ‘milattu Ibrahim’
His deen is made synonymous to it

Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people: "Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allah, we have rejected you, and there has started between us and you, hostility and hatred for ever, until you believe in Allah Alone," except the saying of Ibrahim (Abraham) to his father: "Verily, I will ask for forgiveness (from Allah) for you, but I have no power to do anything for you before Allah." Our Lord! In You (Alone) we put our trust, and to You (Alone) we turn in repentance, and to You (Alone) is (our) final Return, (Al-Mumtahinah 60:4)

The Salafi Jihadi believes that to dismantle the shariah makes you a kaafir
So he fights for Shariah
He doesn't fight for demoncrazy like the FSA
He doesn’t fight for nationalism like the Kurds (YPG, Persmerger etc)
Whenever he goes to the battlefield, it is for Shariah
The Salafi Jihadi has this stance because he has many scholars making takfir
On those who fight for other than the word of Allah (swt)
Scholars like:

Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) said: “And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Shariah other than the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it.” [Majmua al-Fataawa (28/524)]

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728H):  “Whenever a person makes halal what is haraam by consensus or makes haraam what is halal by consensus or replaces the Sharee’ah that is agreed upon by consensus, then he is a Kaffir by the agreement of the scholars of Fiqh.” – “Al-Fataawa”, Vol. 3/267

The Saudi salafis claim that Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) is their shaikh
Yet they against his above fatawa
They claim that to rule by other than the sharia is not kufr

Ibn Kathir said: “So whoever leaves the clear Shari’ah, which was revealed to Muhammad Ibn Abdullah, the Seal of the Prophets, and takes the Hukm to other than it from the laws of Kufr which are abrogated, he has disbelieved. So what about the one who takes the Hukm to the ‘Yasiq’ (the law of the Tartars which mixed Shari’ah rulings with invented rulings) and puts it before it?! Whoever does that, he has disbelieved by the Ijmaa’ of the Muslims.” – “Al-Bidaayah wa Nihaayah”, Vol. 13/118-119.

Ibn Katheer (rh) said: “Thus, it has become in his sons a followed law to which they have been giving precedence over ruling by the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (SAW). Whoever does this is a Kaafir who must be fought until he returns to the rule of Allah and His Messenger. So no one other than He should rule neither minorly or majorly." [Tafseer Ibn Katheer (3/131)]

The above fatwa of Ibn Kathir (rh) is why the Islamic State is fighting those
Who believe that the laws other sharia should rule the land

While 'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. [Adwa’ al-Bayan, (7/162)]

Muhammad Ibrahim [the shaikh of bin Baaz] said in page 6 of his book Tahkeem al Qawaneen:  "Tawheed haakimiyya is the twin half of tawheed Ibaada."

“So look, O Muslims, in all of the Islamic countries or the ones which claim to be Islamic, in all the parts of the Earth, to what your enemies from the missionaries and colonists have done to you! They have put upon the Muslims, laws of misguidance, which destroy the etiquettes and the Deen. European laws, which are idols, which were never based upon any Sharee’ah or Deen, rather they were based upon rules that were made by the Kuffar who refused to believe in the Messenger of their era, Isa, alayhi sallam. “So whatever complies and whatever contradicts; both are stuck in the mud of misguidance and it leads the one who follows it to the Fire and it is not allowed for a Muslim to be submissive to it or be pleased with it.” – “Umdaat At-Tafseer Mukhtaasir Tafseer Ibn Katheer of Ahmad Shaakir”, Vol. 3/214-215


Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen said: "The first type is when the Hukm of Allah is removed and replaced with another Taghuutee Hukm, so that the Hukm of the Shari'ah is eliminated between the people and he puts in its place another Hukm from the fabrication of the humans and they remove the laws of the Shari'ah concerning the Mu'amalah (i. e. the general actions between people) and they put in its place fabricated laws and this, without doubt, is Istib'daal (i. e. replacement) of the Shari'ah of Allah subhaanahuu wa-ta'ala, with other than it. And this is Kufr which removes one from the Milla because this person put himself at the level of the Creator because he shara'a (legislated) for the slaves of Allah that which Allah ta'ala did not give permission for and that is Shirk in His, ta'ala's saying: "Or have they partners with Allâh (false gods), who have instituted for them a religion, which Allâh has not allowed?" (Ash-Shu'ara, 21) – "Fiqh Al-'Ebaadaat", #60

Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullah Ibn Baaz said: "There is no Eeman for the one who believes the laws of the people and their opinions are superior to the Hukm of Allah and His Messenger or that they are equal to it or that they resemble it or who leaves it or replaces it with fabricated laws and institutions invented by people, even if he believes that the laws of Allah are more encompassing and more just." [Wujoob Tah'keem Shari'ah Allah' (pg. 16-17)]

In the above fatawa, Bin Baaz says he doesn't care what is in your heart.
If you dismantle the Shariah, you are a kaafir
This fatwa is the knock out punch for the Saudi salafis
They claim to follow Bin Baaz yet they go against this fatwa

The Salafi Jihadi believes in Khilafah
If three days pass without a Khilafah, you are living in sin
If you don't have the creed of a Salafi Jihadi you are a hopeless case

A Saudi salafi, Goofy soofi will say we don’t need a Caliph

In 22:41 Allah (swt) speaks about establishing shariah in the land

Those (Muslim rulers) who, if We give them power in the land, (they) order for Iqamat-as-Salat. [i.e. to perform the five compulsory congregational Salat (prayers) (the males in mosques)], to pay the Zakat and they enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism and all that Islam has forbidden) [i.e. they make the Qur'an as the law of their country in all the spheres of life]. And with Allah rests the end of (all) matters (of creatures). (Al-Hajj 22:41)

This ayah explains why the muslim world is in such a plight today
There is prostitution in the muslims world
Because zakat is collected and distributed to the poor muslims
Only sharia can guarantee that

The other evidence is 24:55 that we need to establish a Khilafah in the land

Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (An-Nur 24:55)

When there is Shariah, Allah will give you security
But without Shariah, you will have the law of the jungle
Where the strong oppresses the weak
This happens all over the world
No Shariah - No Justice; No Justice - No Peace

The Salafi Jihadi believes in jihad because of the following:

Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know. (Al-Baqarah 2:216)

Some people love what is bad for them and hate something good for them
Why do you love what is bad for you or hate what is good for you,
Because you are emotional
You are not rational

This ayah is general because many at times a woman loves a shaitan
When she thinks he is a good man
This is why a muslim woman needs a wali to vet the man

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite. [Sahih Muslim: (20/47) Hadith 4696]

The above hadith is why the Salafi Jihadi believes in Jihad

CAN A MUSLIM WOMAN PARTICIPATE IN JIHAD?

YES, if she gets the permission of the Amir
The Amir doesn't have to be the Caliph
He can be the General of the Army
The Caliph doesn't have time to pay attention to all the details of the battlefield
Because the Prophet (saw) permitted Umm Haram (ra) to go to Jihad with Mua’wiyya (ra)

On the authority of Abu Umamah al-Bahili that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "A group of my Ummah will remain firm upon the truth, dominating their enemies. They will not be harmed by their opponents until Allah’s decree arrives upon them." [Musnad Ahmad (5/269) No. 22374]

On the authority of Jabir the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "... Jihad is compulsory on you until Judgment Day..." [al-Mu'jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (5/95) No. 4775 and Abu Naeem al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul Awliya' (3/73)]

Imraan ibn Hussain (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, ‘A group of people from my Ummah will continue to fight for the sake of the truth until the last of them fights the Dajjal (anti-Christ) [Sunan Abu Dawud (3/4) No. 2484, Musnad Ahmad (4/437) No. 19934, Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/81) No. 2392]

The battle between haqq and batil is a never ending battle


25. FIRQA NAJIA (THE SAVED SECT)

The Firqa Najia are those who practice Islam the way it was practiced
By the Prophet (saw) and his sahabah (ra)

Abdullah ibn Amr (RA) reported that Allah’s Messeenger (SAW) said, “The same things will be faced by my ummah as the Banu Isra’il faced as a shoe compares with (its pairing) shoe, to the extent that if there was anyone of them to have approached his mother (for sexual intercourse) then there will be in my ummah who would do that. And the Banu Isra’il divided into seventy-two sects and my ummah will divide into seventy-three sects, all of whom will go into the Fire except one millat (sect). “The sahabah (RA) asked (him), “Who are they, O Messenger of Allah (SAW)”. He said, “(Who follow) what I am on and my companions (are on).” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/26) No. 2641, Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/218) No. 444]


26. TAA'IFA MANSOORA

The Taa'ifa Mansoora are the victorious group
They are the mujahedeen
They are the Muslims who are front line material
This is the highest level you can reach as a Muslim
Because the rasul (saw) said the peak of the matter is jihad

"The head of the matter is Islam, its pillar is the prayer and its peak is jihad." Then he (SAW) said, "Shall I not tell you of the foundation of all of that?" I said, "Yes, O Messenger of Allah." So he took hold of his tongue and said, "Restrain this." I said, "O Prophet of Allah, will we be taken to account for what we say with it?" He (SAW) said, "May your mother be bereaved of you, O Muadh! Is there anything that throws people into the Hellfire upon their faces — or: on their noses — except the harvests of their tongues?" [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/11) No. 2616, Sunan Ibn Majah (5/116) No. 3973, Musnad Ahmad (5/231) No. 22069]

A gay, alcoholic etc... are not frontline material
Likewise, not every man is marriage material

Allah spoke about the taa'ifa mansoora in 5:54 below:

O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allah, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allah is All­Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All­Knower. (Al-Ma'idah 5:54)

They do Jihad purely for the sake of Allah and they don't fear the blame of the blamers
These are the characteristics of the taa'ifa mansoora - the mujahideen
The taa'ifa mansoora are different from the Firqa Najia
The taa'ifa mansoora are the elite of the elite
They are above the Firqa Najia
Because the taa'ifa mansoora are the ones who are frontline material


27. AHLUL HALL WAL AQD

When you read a Muslim book and you see this word, it means...
They are they important people who make crucial decisions for the Islamic State
For example, to choose the Caliph for the Islamic State
Remember when Umar (ra) was stabbed?
He put forward 6 names and they were the ones to choose the next caliph
He established this principle of ahlul hall wal aqd

Umar said: I do not think any person has more right for the caliphate than those with whom Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) was always pleased till his death. And whoever is chosen by the people after me will be the caliph, and you people must listen to him and obey him," and then he mentioned the name of 'Uthman, 'Ali, Talha, Az-Zubair, 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf and Sad bin Abi Waqqas. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 23, Hadith #475]

If you are asked today, who decides Ahlul Hall Wal Aqd
When America invaded Iraq, they met resistance from the taa’ifa mansoora
And from them came ahlul hall wal aqd
They have proven themselves to be people with gravitas (importance)

And that they are up to the task


Question 1: It is more of a comment, can you do a dars on Jannah.

Answer 1: I've covered that topic in the past but will be happy to cover it again
insha'Allah
Perhaps the audio is not on the blog, for this reason I would be happy to repeat the topic


Question 2: Asalaamu alaykum sheikh there are some desserts in the supermarket which contain beef gelatin, is it permissible to have it for the kids? I heard there is a difference of opinion on this. jazakAllahkhair sheikh

Answer 2: If the gelatin is beef you cannot pronounce it haram
Because the origin of the animal is halal
The only gelatin you can pronounce as haram is pork gelatin
Some will say it is doubtful,
According to shariah law, a doubt cannot be used to pronounce something haram


Question 3: Who are the true Taai'fa Mansoora fighting today?

Answer 3: The dawla is a Taa'ifa Mansoora
Not the FSA because they are fighting for demoncrazy
And demoncrazy is the religion of the satan and the free mason
Anyone who dies fighting for the FSA will be in the hellfire forever as mentioned in 4:76

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan). (An-Nisa 4:76)


Question 4: Assalama Alaikum. Did the Prophet (saw) and the sahabah (ra) give dawah to homosexuals? Should we and if so, how if they are practicing their perversion?

Answer 4: There is no hadith to prove that the Prophet gave dawah
To homosexuals in his time
Because the Prophet (saw) did not meet any
Homosexuals emerged during the time of Abu Bakr (ra)
And he stoned them to death and burned their bodies


There is a difference of opinion concerning the punishment for the one who commits sodomy. The following are the opinions that were mentioned by Imam Ash-Shawkani in "Nayl Al-Awtar" , Vol. 7/p122-124.
1) That he is killed with the sword, then burnt. This is narrated from Abu Bakr and 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib.
2) That a wall should be collapsed upon him. This was the opinion of 'Umar and 'Uthman.
3) That he should be thrown from the highest building in the city, then that should be followed up with him being pelted with rocks. This was the opinion of Ibn 'Abbas.
4) That he is stoned. This is narrated by Al-Bayhaqi from 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Ash-Sha'bi, Az-Zuhri, Malik, Ahmad, Is'haq, and Ash-Shafi'i.
5) That they are burned. This was narrated by Al-Bayhaqi, that Abu Bakr gathered the Sahabah and 'Ali mentioned this, and the Sahabah agreed upon it. It was also mentioned by Al-Munthiri that it was done by Abu Bakr, 'Ali, 'Abdullah Ibn Az-Zubayr, and Hisham Ibn 'Abdil-Malik.
6) That he is stoned, then burnt with fire. This is narrated from the Sahabah agreeing upon it in the time of Abu Bakr.
7) That the punishment is the same as Zina, in that if he is a virgin, he is whipped, and if he is not, then he is stoned.

That there is no prescribed punishment, rather it is left up to the Imam to perform Ta'zir, and this was narrated from Abu Hanifah, and one narration from Ash-Shafi'i, and others.
Ash-Shawkani refutes the opinion of the punishment being the same as Zina, as well as the opinion that there is only Ta'zir, and supports the opinion that he is killed, but does not appear to specify which way of killing is the strongest.
Nayl Al-Awtar”, Vol. 7/p122-124.

I argued with my scholars in university that a gay can never be a muslim
When you commit zina, what you did was natural (a man having sex with a woman)
It is a major sin but it is natural
The homosexual is doing something that is unnatural
So he is a kaafir


Question 5: The Saudi salafi claims that to make istihdaal or istih-laal you have to ascribe it to Allah (swt) for it to be kufr and they have an ayah they rely on?

Answer 5: This is a lie spoken by the Saudi Salafis
Because people who dabble in black magic do not ascribe it to Allah
And to dabble in black magic is major kufr

Narrated By Al-Bara' ibn Azib: I met my uncle who was carrying a standard. I asked him: 'Where are you going?' He said: 'The Apostle of Allah (SAW) has sent me to a man who has married his father's wife. He has ordered me to cut off his head and take his property.' [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/157) No. 4457, Sunan al-Nasa'i (6/109) No. 3332, Sunan al-Darime (2/205) No. 2239, Musnad Ahmad (4/290) No. 18580]

The man who slept with his father’s wife didn’t ascribe it to Allah
Yet he was killed as a kaafir
Ibn Kathir said he was killed as a kaffir because his property was taken
Saudi Salafis put conditions on kufr to protect their kaffir pray masters
They try to change Islam


Question 5: ASC, can you give me some tips on how to start a dawah group to the truth? There's a lot of deviance where I live.

Answer 5: You need to establish your own salatul jumuah
And you need to establish a dawa table on the street
According to Abu Hanifa (rh), 3 people are enough for jumuah
Use the dawa table to direct people to your jumuah
You need to have a regular study circle
Once a week, every week
We have a lot of materials online,
Over 400 topics online of prepared khutbas and topics for study circles
The admins did the donkey work
To dig up and find hadith
All you have to do is go to the blog for the material
Start off with how to be sincere to the Quran, Muhammad (saw), your brothers and sisters
7 conditions of shahada, 4 branches of tawheed
Start off with How to be sincere to Allah
To start a study group is easy because the research has already been done


Question 6: Is animation allowed in Islam to make Islamic educational animation?

Answer 6: You can do animation if you don't have pictures of any Prophet including Muhammad (saw)
The purpose of animations is to make learning easy for the children
Else they will watch kafir cartoons like:
SpongeBob which is gay
Dragon ball teaches black magic
Simpsons teaches atheism
Teletubbies is gay


Question 7: Egypt acquits 26 of debauchery saying there is no law in Egypt criminalizing homosexuality. This was reported Maggie Michael of associated press

Answer 7: There is no Shariah in Egypt
I am not surprised by this news



Let's Call A Spade A Spade - Part 4
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
17th January 2015


NOTES TYPED LIVE BY umm_khaalid:
EDITED AND FORMATTED BY AT38


28. THE MUSHABBIHA

The Mushabbiha are people who make Allah (swt) similar to His creation.
They believe Allah speaks, hears and sees like us.
To believe that Allah (swt) is similar to His creation in itself is blasphemy.

….There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

As Muslims, we believe that we see and Allah sees but Allah is The All-seeing.
We hear and know but Allah is the All-Hearing and the All-Knowing.
We need light to see in the dark but Allah doesn't need light to see in the dark.
You need a torch light.
A doctor needs an instrument to hear your heart beat but Allah does not.
Our ability to see is finite but Allah's ability to see is infinite.


29 - THE MUJASSIMA

The mujassima are people who believe Allah has a body
And the body of Allah resembles our body.
This is blasphemy.
We don't say Allah's body.
We say Allah's dhaat (person).
We say Allah will descend in person on judgement day.
The word for body in Arabic is jism.
The mujassima are those who describe Allah (swt) like they describe human beings
And they say Allah (swt) has a body.
Even though the classical scholars refused to say Allah has a body.

Allah (swt) mentioned in Surah Ikhlas that He has no kufuwan (co-equal).

Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)): "He is Allah, (the) One. (Al-Ikhlas 112:1)
"Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks). (Al-Ikhlas 112:2)
"He begets not, nor was He begotten; (Al-Ikhlas 112:3)
"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." (Al-Ikhlas 112:4)

The belief that Allah (swt) has a body that resembles our body is blasphemy
Because He doesn't have genitalia.
So the mujassima are heretics (zanaadiqa).
The singular for zanaadiqa is a zindeeq
A zindeeq is a person who makes up his own religion.


30 - THE MUFAWWIDA

These are the agnostic Muslims.
If you ask them any question, they say Allahu alam (Allah knows best).
They say Allahu alam for everything.
They are spineless Muslims.

If you ask if Salman Rushdie, George Bush or Tony Blair are kuffaar, they say Allahu alam.
If you ask for the meaning of Allah's name Al-Karim or Al-Alim, they say Allahu alam.

When Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) was alive he met these people, and they debated.
Ibn Taymiyyah asked them if they believe Allah's names are beautiful.
They said yes.
Ibn Taymiyyah asked how they arrived at that conclusion
If they do not know the meanings of those names.

Say (O Muhammad SAW) : "Invoke Allah or invoke the Most Beneficent (Allah), by whatever name you invoke Him (it is the same), for to Him belong the Best Names. And offer your Salat (prayer) neither aloud nor in a low voice, but follow a way between. (Al-Isra 17:110)

They had no choice but to admit that Allah's names are beautiful because of the above ayah.

Allah! La ilahla illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)! To Him belong the Best Names. (Ta-Ha 20:8)


31 - THE MU'ATTILA

The Mu'attila are people who reject Allah's 99 names and attributes.
They are the mu'tazila and the jahmiyyah.

Why do they reject Allah's 99 names and attributes?
They debated with Christians and said to them
‘You worship three gods - god the father, god the son and god the holy spirit’.
The Christians hit back and said you do the same thing
Because you say Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim
They said Allah is one god, Ar-Rahman is a second god and Ar-Rahim is a third god.
So the mu'attila said in order to escape this criticism of the Christians,
We are going to reject the 99 Names and Attributes of Allah and believe in Allah alone
They didn't want to worship 99 ‘gods’ besides Allah.

This was their argument.
This argument is weak and it is blasphemy.
The Prophet said Allah has 99 names.

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever 'ahsaha' (enumerates them, believes in them, ponders their meanings, worships Allah by them and supplicates with them, and acts by them according to one's belief in them) will enter Paradise.” [al-Bukhari (7392) and Muslim (2677)]

It is known of Islam by necessity that Allah has 99 names.
Even Muhammad (SAWS) has 99 names.
He is also called Ahmad and Mustafa.
So are we going to claim that there are many different Muhammads
Because he has many different names?

The argument of the mu'atilla that they only believe in One God, Allah,
And not Ar-Rahman or Ar-Rahim is weak.

You sound like the kuffaar of Quraish.

"...Suhail said to the Prophet "Please conclude a peace treaty with us." So, the Prophet called the clerk and said to him, "Write: بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ 'Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Raheem' (In the Name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful)." Suhail said, "As for الرَّحْمَنِ 'ar-Rahman (Beneficent), by Allah, I do not know what it means. So write: بِاسْمِكَ اللهُمَّ 'Bismika Allahumma' (By Your Name O Allah)..." [al-Bukhari: (3/54) (2731) and Muslim (1784)]


When it came to signing the treaty, they went back to their natural instinct of tawheed
That Abraham (as) taught them.
These mu'attila say they reject Allah’s Names and Attributes
Because they don't want to give Allah human body parts.
The mu'attila are the jahmiyyah.

The governor of Iraq, Khalid ibn Abdullah al Qasri, said to the people
To bring out their animals for sacrifice on Eid al Adha.
He said his sacrifice was Jad ibn Dirham because he denied Allah's Names and Attributes.
He even denied Allah taking Abraham (as) as a friend
And Him speaking to Musa (as) on Mount Sinai.

'Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Muhammad Ibn Habeeb Ibn Abee Habeeb on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather [who] said: I witnessed Khaalid Ibn 'Abdullah Al-Qasree - and he addressed them at Waasit - "Oh People, make sacrifice, may Allah accept it from you. Verily I am sacrificing Al-Ja'd Ibn Dirham, for indeed he claims that Allah did not take Ibrahim as a khaleel (close friend), and [that] He did not speak to Moosa. Most Perfect is He and exalted is He from what Al-Ja'd says." Then he descended and slaughtered him. I say: And the Jahmiyyah and Mu'tazilah speak with this, and they distort the text of the revelation regarding that, and they claim that the Lord is purified of that (i.e. having spoken to Moses and taken Ibrahim as a khalil). [Mukhtasar al-Uluww of adh-Dhahabi, (p.134)]

These people say Allah is a mute.
They say Allah cannot speak.
They say Allah had to create the voice by the burning bush for Musa (AS) to hear.

The question that needs to be asked is:

DOES ALLAH SWT HAVE AN IMAGE?

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked: There is a hadeeth narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in which he forbids saying “May Allaah deform your face”, and says that Allaah created Adam in His image. What is the correct belief with regard to this hadeeth? He replied: This hadeeth is proven from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), in which he said: “If any one of you strikes (another), let him avoid the face, for Allaah created Adam in His image.” According to another version: “In the image of the Most Merciful.” This does not imply resemblance or likeness. What is meant, according to the scholars, is that Allaah created Adam with the ability to hear and see, and to speak when he wants. These are also attributes of Allaah, for He is All-Hearing, All-Seeing, and He speaks when He wants, and He has a Face, may He be glorified and exalted. But it does not mean that there is any resemblance or likeness. Rather the image of Allaah is different from that of created beings. What is meant is that He is All-Hearing, All-Seeing, and He speaks when He wants, and He created Adam also able to hear and see, with a face and hands and feet. But man’s hearing is not like Allaah’s hearing, his seeing is not like Allaah’s seeing, his speaking is not like Allaah’s speaking. Rather Allaah has attributes that befit His majesty and might, and man has attributes that befit him, attributes that are finite and imperfect, whereas the attributes of Allaah are perfect, with no shortcomings, infinite and without end. Hence Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “There is nothing like Him, and He is the AllHearer, the AllSeer” [al-Shoora 42:11] “And there is none coequal or comparable unto Him” [al-Ikhlaas 112:4]. So it is not permissible to strike the face or say “May Allaah deform your face”. End quote. Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh, 4/226

Another thing that will help to explain the meaning of this hadeeth is the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “The first group to enter Paradise will be in the image of the moon” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3245; Muslim, 2834.)
What the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) meant here is that the first group will be in human form, but because of their purity, beauty and brightness of face they will look like the moon, so they are likened to the moon, but without resembling it. So just because a thing is said to be in the image of a thing it does not mean that it is like it in all aspects. The Prophet’s words, “Adam was created in His image” means that Allaah created Adam in His image, for He has a face, an eye, a hand, and a foot, and Adam had a face, an eye, a hand, and a foot… but that does not mean that these things are exactly the same. There is some similarity, but it is not exactly the same. Similarly the first group to enter Paradise are likened to the moon, but they are not exactly the same. This confirms the view of Ahl al-Sunnah wa'l-Jamaa'ah, who say that none of the attributes of Allaah can be likened to the attributes of created beings, without distorting or misinterpreting, or discussing how or likening Him to His creation.
See Sharh al-‘Aqeedah al-Waasitah by Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 1/107, 293.

For more information, see: Sharh Kitaab al-Tawheed min Saheeh al-Bukhaari by Shaykh al-Ghunaymaan, 2/33-98, in which he quotes at length from Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him), refuting the misinterpretation of this hadeeth by ahl al-kalaam and those who agreed with them. And Allaah knows best.

You laugh and Allah (swt) laughs.

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Allah laughs at two men, one of them kills the other and they both enter Paradise!” They said: 'How can that happen O Messenger of Allah?' He said: “One of them kills the other, so the one who is killed goes to Paradise (a martyr) and then the man who killed embraces Islam, goes and fights in the path of Allah and is killed as a Shaheed and goes to Paradise” [al-Bukhari (2826) and Muslim (1890)]

You have honour and Allah (swt) has honour.

By Allah, I am more jealous of my honour than he, and Allah is more jealous than I... [Sahih Muslim, Hadith No. 3572]

A pig has no honour.
Sa’d Ibn Ubada (ra) said ‘if I catch a man with my wife I'll chop off his head.’
This man was jealous but the rasul (saw) commented that
He has more jealousy than him and Allah (swt) has more jealousy than them

Al-Mughira b. Shu'ba (RA) reported that Sa'd b. 'Ubada (RA) said: If I were to see a man with my wife, I would have struck him with the sword, and not with the flat part (side) of it. When Allah's Messenger (PBUH) heard of that, he said: Are you surprised at Sa'd's jealousy of his honour? By Allah, I am more jealous of my honour than he, and Allah is more jealous than I. Because of His jealousy Allah has prohibited abomination, both open and secret And no person is more jealous of his honour than Allah, and no persons, is more fond of accepting an excuse than Allah, on account of which He has sent messengers, announcers of glad tidings and warners; and no one is more fond of praise than Allah on account of which Allah has promised Paradise. [Sahih Muslim, Book 9, Hadith #3572]

If you are not jealous you are called a dayouth.
And the dayouth will never enter paradise

Abdullah ibn Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Three people will not enter paradise and Allah will not look to them on the Day of Judgment: the one who is disobedient to his parents, the woman who imitates men and the ad-Dayooth (cuckold, weak man who feels no jealousy over his womenfolk)..." [Musnad Ahmad (2/134) No. 6180, Musnad al-Bazzar (12/270) No. 6051, al-Sunnan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (2/63) No. 2354, al-Mu’jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (3/51) No. 2443]

And when you (Muhammad SAW) see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses (of the Qur'an) by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Shaitan (Satan) causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers, etc.). (Al-An'am 6:68)

The reason why people become mu'attila is because they think if they believe Allah has Hands, a Face, Eyes, etc. they are going to make Allah similar to man.
Why is it so hard to believe that Allah has two Hands but they don't resemble our hands?
If your heart was pure you would believe Allah has two Hands but they don't resemble ours.
The clock on the wall has two hands but they don't resemble your hands.

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

Ahmad ibn Hanbal (rh) used a hadith to prove that Allah has two Eyes.

'Abdullah bin 'Umar (RA) said: One day the Messenger of Allah (SAW) mentioned Al-Masih Dajjal (the Antichrist) in the presence of the people and said, "Verily, Allah is not one-eyed but Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal is blind in the right eye which looks like a swollen grape." [al-Bukhari (7127) and Muslim (169)]

The hanbali madhab was rigid in their tawheed.
They are the most accurate.

You can't say Allah is sitting on His Throne.

Ja'far Ibn Abdullah narrated: We were with Malik Ibn Anas when a man came to him and said: “O Abu Abdullah (Allah said) 'Ar-Rahman upon the Throne Istawa' (20:5), how was His Istiwa? Imam Malik inclined his head and was silent until the sweat of fever covered his brow, then he looked up and said: "Istiwa is not unknown, the Kayf (how) is uncomprehendable, believing in it is wajib (obligatory), and asking about it is bid'ah (innovation), and I do not think that you are anything but an innovator." Then he ordered that the man be expelled. [Abu-Naeem Al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul-Awliya wa Tabaqat Al-Asfiya' (Vol. 6, pg. 325-326)]

Stay away from specificities.
That's how you fall into shirk and kufr.
Imam Malik (rh) said how Allah is above the Arsh is unknown to us.
The shaitaan wants you to ask how.

The Prophet (saw) said Allah (swt) created four things with His two Hands:
The pen, the Arsh, Paradise and Adam.

Mujahid narrated Abdullah ibn Umar (RA) said: “Allah created four things with His Hand; 1. The Throne 2. The Pen 3. Aadam and 4. The paradise of ‘Adn. He then said to the rest of the creation ‘Kun’ [Be] and it was.” [Adh Dhahabi in ‘Mukhtasar al-‘Uluw’ (p105), Abu al-Shaikh al-Asbahani in 'al-‘Adhuma' (5/1555), Tafsir al-Tabari (21/239), ‘The chain is authentic according to the conditions of Muslim.’]


31 - THE MURJIF

You have heard about the murji and the mu'tazila but who is the murjif?
Allah mentioned him in the Qur'an as well.
The murjif is a mutineer.
He creates mutiny against the amir.
If you take him to jihad, he spreads fitnah in the battlefield and causes people to defect.
Some of them who don't go to jihad practise scare mongering.

If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease (evil desire for adultery, etc.), and those who spread false news among the people in Al­Madinah, cease not, We shall certainly let you overpower them, then they will not be able to stay in it as your neighbours but a little while. (Al-Ahzab 33:60)

The reason why they spread false news is to cause you to become afraid.
They say you are going to lose because your enemy has
Up to date equipment and weapons but you don't.

Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)." (Aali Imran 3:173)

Some scholars call them busy bodies.
They are busy spreading fitnah.

Had they marched out with you, they would have added to you nothing except disorder, and they would have hurried about in your midst (spreading corruption) and sowing sedition among you, and there are some among you who would have listened to them. And Allah is the All-Knower of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.). (At-Tawbah 9:47)

They have the gift of the gab so some mujahideen will listen to them.
Some mujahideen are naive so they can be easily convinced.
They are mutineers and they sow the seeds of discord.
You shouldn't go to the battlefield if you are a murjif.
The amir might kill you.


32 - THE MODERNISTS

They are people who believe Islam is outdated
And is no longer compatible with modern times
So they think we need to gather all the sociologist, doctors and humanists
To make a new ‘Islam’ compatible to modern times

We say to them their argument is weak
Because Islam didn't tell them to turn their backs on modernity
Dubai is more developed than Europe and Dubai is a Muslim country.
Who told you Islam prevents modernity and modernisation?
I'm sure many Muslims have iphone 6.
They want the latest phones, computers and cars.

But seek, with that (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of legal enjoyment in this world, and do good as Allah has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allah likes not the Mufsidun (those who commit great crimes and sins, oppressors, tyrants, mischief-makers, corrupts). (Al-Qasas 28:77)

Who told you Islam prevents modernisation?
Who told you Islam told you to drive around in an old car?
You need to push it before you can drive it.
That's not piety. That's stupidity.

The door of ijtihad is open until the day of resurrection.
So Islam is suitable for all times and places.
If you close the door of ijtihad then Islam is no longer suitable for our time.
You make Islam obsolete.
Everyday there is a new invention.
So the scholars tell you whether it is halal or haram.

There is a toy which came out in Japan.
If you don't look after it properly it can die.
It came way back in 1993.
The scholars will do ijtihad on whether it is permissible.
It is permissible because the death is not real, it is a fake death.
So the scholars have to do ijtihad every day.

For example, skype
Of course it is permissible to skype.
If you meet someone online and the person doesn’t want to skype with you,
He/she is a liar, fraud and a con artist.

You didn't have TV, computers, machine guns, planes, etc. in the time of the Rasul (SAWS)
So the scholars have to do ijtihad.

Artificial insemination is allowed if it involves a husband and wife.
Cloning is allowed if it serves a particular purpose or if it wards off an imminent evil.

What about GM crops?
The jury is still out about GM crops.
The purpose of GM crops is to make it bigger or resilient against diseases.
If there are no proven side effects, it is halal.
Because everything under the heavens is halal until proven haram.
That is because the shariah of Muhammad (SAWS) is rahma.

Plastic surgery is halal as long as there are no proven harmful side effects.
Some people may say you are changing Allah's creation.
You are not changing Allah's creation, you are beautifying it.
Some people have accidents and need plastic surgery to fix their faces
Your child may be born deformed or something not right
You need plastic surgery to fix that too

What about surrogate pregnancy?
The scholars differ.

Ibn Jibreen said it is haram because you are hiring the womb of a woman.
The woman who carried the child might develop an emotional attachment
To the child so there could be a dispute.
Ibn Jibreen quoted the following ayah to prove that
The one who gave birth to the child is the real mother

Those among you who make their wives unlawful (Az-Zihar) to them by saying to them "You are like my mother's back." They cannot be their mothers. None can be their mothers except those who gave them birth. And verily, they utter an ill word and a lie. And verily, Allah is Oft-Pardoning, Oft-Forgiving. (Al-Mujadilah 58:2)

The second group of scholars says surrogate mothers are halal
Because according to shariah you can hire a breast feeding mother.
They used qiyas.
Ibn Jibreen said it is different.

When you hire a breast feeding mother, there will be no dispute on who the mother is.
But when you hire a surrogate mother there will be a dispute on who the mother is.

What is the compromise between these two opinions?
The compromise is that if you are in polygamy a co-wife can be a surrogate mother.

You'll ask what about stunned animals? Can we eat that meat?
If the voltage was high and the animal died as a result that meat is haram.
If the voltage was low and did not kill the animal, that meat is halal.
Because the knife completed the killing
If the animal which was stunned was a chicken, that meat is haram
Because they are weak so the stunning kills them.

If the animal which was stunned is a goat/sheep/cow/camel
And the animal didn't die because of stunning, that meat is halal.

We have new inventions everyday so if you close the door of ijtihad,
You make Islam obsolete.

This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned meats), then surely, Allah is Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Ma'idah 5:3)


33 - THE SECULARIST

The secularist is a person who believes Islam should be separated from politics.
You have Christian secularists as well - they preach the separation of Church from State.
There are two types of secularists:

1 - He believes Islam should be separated from the state
2 - He believes Islam should be separated from his life.

The second type is the extreme secularist.
He calls himself a non-practicing Muslim.
He wants to have his cake and eat it.
He wants to apostate yet he wants to call himself a Muslim.
He wants to have the izzah of calling himself a Muslim.

But if they repent, perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, then they are your brethren in religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for a people who know. (At-Tawbah 9:11)

Allah refutes this argument of non-practising Muslims in the above ayah.
This is the ayah used by the scholars to say
There is no such thing as a non-practicing Muslim.

This type of secularist wants to drink alcohol, have girlfriends and go to casinos.
He thinks all he needs to do is recite the shahada and he's good to go to Paradise.

The other secularist practises Islam.
He prays 5 times a day, fasts in Ramadan, gives zakah and goes to Hajj and Umrah.
But he believes you should keep Islam in the four corners of the masjid.

He believes you should marginalise Islam to the individual.
"If we want to operate riba banks, don't interfere"
"Don't take Islam in the ministry of finance"
"Don't take Islam in the ministry of education. If we want to teach darwinism, don't interfere".
"Don't take Islam in the ministry of information. Don't tell me what to show on TV"
"Don't take Islam in the ministry of tourism. We need topless beaches and alcohol"
"Don't take Islam in the ministry of agriculture. Tourists from Europe want a European breakfast - scrambled egg with pork"
"Keep your Islam in the four corners of the masjid" - that is the secularist.

He doesn't believe Islam should be implemented on a state level.
He believes Islam should be practiced on an individual level.
He has a nice beard and his trousers are above his ankle.
Sit with him for half an hour and he'll make you want to vomit.
He says don't talk politics in the masjid.
Poor fool! He doesn’t know La ilaha illallah is the highest level of politics.
This person believes in democracy.
He goes to the ballot box and votes.
He doesn't know that democracy is shirk.
He calls the mujahideen terrorists.
He doesn't know about tawheed hakimiyyah, al wala wal bara and kufr bit taghoot.
Yet you get carried away by his beard and his trousers above his ankles.
Because you pay attention to things that are superficial.

The modernist and the secularist are infidels.

The modernist believes Islam is obsolete and
The secularist believes Islam should be kept to the four corners of the masjid.

This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned meats), then surely, Allah is Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Ma'idah 5:3)

Allah warned the modernist and the secularist in Surah Mad'idah verse 54:

O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allah, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allah is All­Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All­Knower. (Al-Ma'idah 5:54)




Question 1: Salamu alaikum sheikh. You mentioned plastic surgery is permissible. How do we reconcile that with nisa ayah 119? jzk

Answer 1:

Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah." And whoever takes Shaitan (Satan) as a Wali (protector or helper) instead of Allah, has surely suffered a manifest loss. (An-Nisa 4:119)

When you do plastic surgery, you are not changing the nature of Allah's creation.
An example of changing Allah's creation is to change genders
Or to introduce pig genes into chickens.
We are not changing Allah's creation, we are beautifying it.
Especially if you were born with deformities or you had an accident.


Question 2: If the mujahideen are on the battle field and a mujahid did not go, do the mujahideen have to boycott him like what was done to Ka’b Ibn Malik?

Answer 2: Yes, you can apply this rule if you are in the Islamic State


Question 3: Are the Asha’iras from Ahlus-Sunnah? And what is our stance towards the modern-day Asha’iras? Is it permissible to study fiqh or ‘uloom al-hadeeth (sciences of hadeeth) with an Asha’ira?


Answer 3: There is no doubt that you are allowed to pray behind the asha’ira
And you can study fiqh, uloom al hadeeth and Quran from them.
You can study everything from them except tawheed.
Great scholars like Imam Nawawi, Qurtubi and Bayhaqi were ashaaira.
Zamakshari was a mu'tazila but the scholars still took knowledge from him.
Every scholar makes mistake.
So you take the good from each scholar and leave the bad.
Didn't you see me quoting from Bin Baz tonight?
The same Bin Baz who allowed the troops into the holy land.
You are allowed to take knowledge from the asha’ira, every knowledge except tawheed.


Question 4: Is it allowed to take a loan from a kafir government and not pay it back? Who is the shaikh who sold out from the Saudi salafi movement who you mentioned in the devils deception of the saudi salafi lecture towards the end. . was it Assim Hakim?

Answer 4: I don't think it was Assim Hakim.
If the government does not oppress Muslims you should pay back the loan.
You should pay back the loan if it is the Islamic State.
You don't pay back the loan in daarul harb.


Question 5: Asc Sheikh, Can you interpret my dream for me inshaAllah. Last night I had a dream that I was shot in the stomach and I was wearing white shirt and I could see blood and yellow stains on it. I could feel the inner flesh with my fingers on my stomach. I was wide awake but I didn't know where I was. Allahu'Alim


Answer 5: Your dream is easy to interpret.
You are going to be a victim of an islamaphobic attack.


Question 6: Is steroids haraam?

Answer 6: The place you are living in at the moment is darul harb.
Steroids are only halal for people who you fear might have stunted growth.
Because you don't want your child to have stunted growth and be bullied at school,
You can give him steroids.
It has to be given by a qualified doctor.
