(Notes & Audio) Their Hearts Are Alike

Their Hearts Are Alike

Allah (swt) has told us on many occasions that the hearts of the kuffaar are alike
Every kaafir is a hypocrite and every hypocrite is a kaafir

Their hearts are alike because they hate what Allah (swt) has revealed
And this is why they will always unite against the truth

Their hearts are alike... (Al-Baqarah 2:118)

They enjoin what is evil and forbid what is good
They hate what Allah (swt) has revealed
They unite in fighting against the haqq
Allah said:

But those who disbelieve (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism), for them is destruction, and (Allāh) will make their deeds vain. (Muhammad 47:8)
That is because they hate that which Allah has sent down (this Qur'an and Islamic laws, etc.), so He has made their deeds fruitless. (Muhammad 47:9)

Here Allah tells you they hate what He revealed and He has made their deeds void

It is worthy of mentioning that History repeats itself


REASON 1: Human nature doesn't change

So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islāmic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allāh Alone) Allāh's Fitrah (i.e. Allāh's Islāmic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq­illāh (i.e. the Religion of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. [Tafsir At­Tabarī, Vol 21, Page 41] (Ar-Rum 30:30)

Whatever era you live in, you will behave the same way
Whether you live in the Stone Age, ice age or the modern age
Because Allah said so in the above verse
Your needs remain the same
You have 5 needs (physical, spiritual, emotional, mental and financial)

REASON 2: The plot/strategy of the shaitan doesn't change

Allah warned you about the shaitan in 36:60-62

Did I not ordain for you, O Children of Adam, that you should not worship Shaitān (Satan). Verily, he is a plain enemy to you. (Ya-Sin 36:60)
And that you should worship Me [Alone Islāmic Monotheism, and set up not rivals, associate-gods with Me]. That is a Straight Path. (Ya-Sin 36:61)
And indeed he (Satan) did lead astray a great multitude of you. Did you not, then, understand? (Ya-Sin 36:62)

The shaitan uses women, alcohol, gambling
To spread enmity between people

REASON 3: The Sunnah of Allah SWT will never change

Then, can they expect anything (else), but the Sunnah (way of dealing) of the peoples of old? So no change will you find in Allāh's Sunnah (way of dealing), and no turning off will you find in Allāh's Sunnah (way of dealing). (Fatir 35:43)

The above are the three reasons why history repeats itself
Sins of yesterday have become pandemic in our society today
Every sin that was committed by the people before is being committed today


One of the earliest sins is the sin of murder
The sin of murder was started by Cain
Murder has become pandemic in our society today
School children are killing children at school in America today
The Prophet (saw) said killing will become rife as a sign of the last days

The Hour (Last Day) will not be established until murder will increase. (Bukhari )

Abdullah Ibn Mas‘ud (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “No soul is killed unlawfully, but there is a share of the sin on the first son of Adam, because he was the first one to set the precedent of killing.” [Related by al-Bukhari (3335) and Muslim (1677)]

Cain was the first to start the crime of murder
So he gets the sin of everyone that commits it
When you start something good, you get the baraka of the people who did the good
When you start something bad, you get the curse (sin) of the bad that was done

A Jewish boy killed his uncle for his daughter and his wealth

And (remember) when Mûsa (Moses) said to his people: "Verily, Allāh commands you that you slaughter a cow." They said, "Do you make fun of us?" He said, "I take Allāh's Refuge from being among Al-Jāhilûn (the ignorants or the foolish)." (Al-Baqarah 2:67)

People kill for wealth also
People hire contract killers to kill their partners so that they can claim insurance
This applies to both men and women

Some people kill their parents for the inheritance today

Cain killed Able over a woman
Many men are killing people today for the sake of a woman
To kill over a woman will never stop
It will continue till the Day Of Judgement
Cain killed Able over his twin sister. He preferred his own twin
His twin was supposed to marry Able and she was prettier
The sharia of Adam (as) was that the twins cross marry
They were to offer a sacrifice to resolve the dispute but Cain’s wasn't accepted
So he killed his brother


Shirk came long after murder
Ibn Abbas said:

Ibn 'Abbas (RA) said: "Between Nooh (Noah) and Adam were ten generations, all of them were upon Sharee'ah (law) of the truth, then they differed. So Allah sent prophets as bringers of good news and as warners." [Related by Ibn Jareer at-Tabaree in his tafseer (4/275) No. 4048 and al-Haakim (2/596) No. 4009 who said: "It is authentic according to the criterion of al-Bukhari." Adh-Dhahabe also agreed]

No one worshipped idols before the people of Noah (as)
People were convinced to worship statues by the shaitan
When the grandchildren of Adam (as) were dead
They were sad and because they were righteous
He convinced them to erect their status to remember them
And slowly, slowly they started to worship them


People used to cheat in the marketplace
The people of Shuaib (as) became rich by cheating
They were the first to cheat with the scales
This is rife in our society today

Today we have a lot of scammers
Often you get scams in the email
Asking for your bank information to claim the prize
Only a fool will fall for this
How can someone tell you that you won $10m but should send him
$2,000 for him to send you the money?
The rasul (saw) said those who cheat us are not one of us

Abu Hurayra (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, "Anyone who carries arms against us is not one of us. Anyone who cheats us is not one of us." [Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith #182]

All the crimes and sins from yesterday exist today
Because there is no such thing as the past

And thus do We explain the Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that the way of the Mujrimûn (criminals, polytheists, sinners), may become manifest. (Al-An'am 6:55)

Surah 6:55 is the proof of this
When Allah told you the stories of Prophets Abraham, Noah, Yusuf (as) etc
Don’t marginalize it to just a bedtime story to tell your kids
Allah said the purpose of the stories is to learn the ways of the Mujrimun (criminals)
These stories are lessons (ibra) for you


The first people to practice sodomy are the people of Lut (as)

And (remember) Lout (Lot), when he said to his people: "Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the 'Alamīn (mankind and jinns)? (Al-A'raf 7:80)

Some would like to say a gay can be a Muslim
But there is a Quranic verse where Allah (swt) made takfir on the gays
You are not allowed to compare sodomy to adultery
Allah (swt) made takfir on the gays in 55:35-36

So We brought out from therein the believers. (Adh-Dhariyat 51:35)
But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters]. (Adh-Dhariyat 51:36)

Those who say that they can be muslims compare it to adultery
But they are wrong


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.
8) 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.

The hikmah for burning the body of a gay is that if his body is reduced to ashes
He cannot be buried in the graveyard of the Muslims
His family cannot argue with you about the body after his body is reduced to ashes


Magic was rife in the time of Musa (as)
When Musa (as) went to the Pharaoh, he chose 70 magicians to challenge Musa
The Pharaoh used magic to put fear in the hearts of the believers

Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that Ibn `Abbas said, “The magicians were seventy men who were magicians in the morning, but witnesses of faith by the time evening came. [Tafsir Ibn Kathir Juz’ 16 (Part 16): Al Kahf 75 To Ta Ha 135]

These magicians who challenged Musa (as) all took shahadah and died as shuhadah
The modern day palace magicians are the wicked scholars
The magicians of the Pharaoh are better than them, they repented to Allah (swt)

Magic is rife today too
Sometimes people use magic to break up man from wife
Sometimes a man uses black magic to make a beautiful girl to fall in love with him
This man is a deadbeat (poor, lazy and no ambition)
Yet the girl falls for him
They use magic on people to make them steal money
They use it to win a big court case
Some people use it on relatives to resolve a jinn problem (possessed by Jinn)
It is used to cure a disease

Ex: In the story of Prophet Ayyub (as)
He blamed the shaitan for his illness

The punishment of the magician is one strike of the sword

Jundub (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “The hadd (prescribed punishment) for the practitioner of magic is a blow with the sword (i.e., execution)" [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/60) No. 1460, Sunan al-Daraqutni (4/120) No. 3204, Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/401) No. 8073, al-Sunan al-Kabir al-Bayhaqi (8/234) No. 16500, al-Mu'jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (2/161) No. 1665]

People don't know magic makes you become kaafir
They don't know the things that nullify your Islam

All the earlier sins I mentioned are rife in our society today
Our society is far worse than the previous societies I have listed
Because our society is a combination of all the sins of the previous societies
Homosexuality, scammers and con artist, black magic
So the kuffaar you are living among today, are worse than the earlier kuffaar


In the time of the Rasool (saw) they slandered his name
Allah (swt) spoke about it when they gathered in Makkah

Verily, he thought and plotted; (Al-Muddaththir 74:18)
So let him be cursed! How he plotted! (Al-Muddaththir 74:19)
And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted! (Al-Muddaththir 74:20)
Then he thought; (Al-Muddaththir 74:21)
Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way; (Al-Muddaththir 74:22)
Then he turned back and was proud; (Al-Muddaththir 74:23)
Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old; (Al-Muddaththir 74:24)
"This is nothing but the word of a human being!" (Al-Muddaththir 74:25)

Many kuffaar today believe that the Quran was written by the Prophet (saw)
The kuffaar of yesterday launched that accusation too because their hearts are alike
They slandered him yesterday and are slandering him today too

Woe to every slanderer and backbiter. (Al-Humuzah 104:1)
Who has gathered wealth and counted it, (Al-Humuzah 104:2)
He thinks that his wealth will make him last forever! (Al-Humuzah 104:3)

Allah (swt) is speaking about propaganda warfare in the above verses
This is nothing new; it was carried out in the time of the Prophet (saw)
So CNN, BBC, FOXNEWS, NBC, etc are doing just what the kuffaar of yesterday were doing
And hence Allah revealed the above verses (104:1-3)

They used the media then to slander the rasul (saw)
The media of the day was poetry
If you want your tribe to be famous,
You needed to have a poet to sing the praises of the tribe
Even the Prophet (saw) had a poet
Today we have rap artist
The poets were the rap artist in the time of the Prophet (saw)

And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (, singing, etc.) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allāh without knowledge, and takes it (the Path of Allāh, the Verses of the Qur'ān) by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment (in the Hell-fire). (Luqman 31:6)

Allah speaks about the strategy of the kuffaar in the above verse
The kuffaar will forever use their media to insult the Rasool (saw)
You saw the Charlie Hebdo massacre in France because of the insult of the Prophet (saw)
Two Algerian brothers sacrificed their lives for him
Most of you don’t know what they did in their cartoons
They drew him in the worse of image one can imagine
All the scholars who condemned our brothers are donkeys and dogs
You call them scholars but Allah (swt) called them donkeys and dogs

And recite (O Muhammad SAW) to them the story of him to whom We gave Our Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but he threw them away, so Shaitān (Satan) followed him up, and he became of those who went astray. (Al-A'raf 7:175)

And had We willed, We would surely have elevated him therewith but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his description is the description of a dog: if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls his tongue out. Such is the description of the people who reject Our Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). So relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect. (Al-A'raf 7:176)

Those who call them scholars are hypocrites like them

Aisha narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Those who give respect to a bid'ati (innovator in Religion) surely will be counted as a helper of destroying Islam." [al-Tabarani in 'al-Mu’jam al-Awsat' (7/35) No. 6772 and al-Bayhaqi in 'Shu'ab al-Emaan' (12/57) No. 9018]

The hearts of the kuffaar are alike
When you insult Muhammad (saw) in the name of democracy and freedom of speech,
You insult 1.5 billion Muslims
I lived with many Arabs and the ones that can’t stand an insult in the least are the Algerians
They say death before dishonor
Libyans and Algerians specifically cannot cope with an insult

Bill Donahue regarding statement:


“It is too bad that he didn’t understand the role he played in his tragic death … had he not been so narcissistic, he may still be alive,” Donohue said of slain Charlie Hebdo editor Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier.

The problem with the kuffaar is that they don’t understand the mentality of the Muslims
The French people are the armpit of the human race

When the Prophet (saw) was conquering Makkah
He ordered the killing of some people who insulted him
Though he gave amnesty to the whole of Makkah
He said they should be killed even if they were holding on the cloth of the kaba
It was a custom that if you are being chased by an enemy
And you run and hold on to the cloth of the Kabba, you will be spared
Hence the rasul (saw) specified that they should not be spared
Even if they are holding on to the cloth of the Kaba

May Allah accept the sacrifice of the brothers. Ameen


The kuffaar of Makkah placed an embargo against the muslims
During the time of the Prophet (saw), it lasted for three years

The Quraysh gathered together to confer and decided to draw up a document in which they undertook not to marry women from Banu Hashim and the Banu al Muttalib, or to give them women in marriage, or to sell anything to them or buy anything from them. They drew up a written contract to that effect and solemnly pledged themselves to observe it. They then hung up the document in the interior of the Kaaba to make it even more binding upon themselves. When Quraysh did this, the Banu Hashim and the Banu al-Muttalib joined with 'Abu Talib, went with him to his valley and gathered round him there; but 'Abu Lahab 'Abd al Uzza b. 'Abd al-Muttalib left the Banu Hashim and went with the Quraysh supporting them against 'Abu Talib. This state of affairs continued for two or three years, until the two clans were exhausted, since nothing reached any of them except what was sent secretly by those of the Quraysh who wished to maintain relations with them" [Tarikh Tabari Vol 6 Page 81]

Today, if a Muslim country should implement Shariah
They use sanctions and embargos on them to bully them to give up their religion
Just like they did during the time of the Prophet (saw)
Today, if you are a strong Muslim
They try to incarcerate you, imprison you, deport you or assassinate you

And (remember) when the disbelievers plotted against you (O Muhammad SAW) to imprison you, or to kill you, or to get you out (from your home, i.e. Makkah); they were plotting and Allāh too was planning, and Allāh is the Best of the planners. (Al-Anfal 8:30)

During the time of the Prophet, they did the same

They imprisoned me and deported me afterwards
They assassinated Anwar Awlaki (rh) and his 16 year old son too
They are so desperate;
This is collective punishment
And the kuffaar say they are champions of human rights
They are human devils

It has nothing to do with race
The black kaafir (Obama) killed more Muslims with drones than Bush did
Many of you are so stupid, you think the white kafir is worse than the black kafir
He is more intelligent than Bush is and won't put troops on the ground
Bush was a fool, he took pictures on an aircraft carrier saying the war was over
But the fighting had just began; it is just beginning to intensify
The Islamic State has no borders
They will conquer KSA, Jordan, Kuwait etc
They will conquer the apostate regimes
Who believe in Arab Nationalism

These kuffaar can’t do anything to the believers
Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) wrote letters from prison

Ibn al-Qayyim said: One day he (meaning Ibn Taymiyyah) said to me: “What can my enemies do to me? My garden is in my heart; wherever I go it is with me and never leaves me. My detainment is seclusion (an opportunity for worship), my being killed is martyrdom, and being expelled from my city is a journey.” [al-Waabil as-Sayyib min al-Kalim at-Tayyib (pg. 48)]

This is one of his letters he wrote in prison (above)


Another strategy of the kuffaar is they form coalitions
The first coalition against Islam was when
The seven men from seven different tribes in Makkah
Came outside the house of the Prophet (saw) to kill him
However, he came out and recited Surah Yasin and sprinkled dust over them
So they didn’t see him go out

To make the necessary preparations for the implementation of their devilish plan, the chiefs of Makkah had chosen eleven men: Abu Jahl, Hakam bin Abil Al-‘As, ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait, An-Nadr bin Harith, Omaiyah bin Khalaf, Zama‘a bin Al-Aswad, Tu‘aima bin ‘Adi, Abu Lahab, Ubai bin Khalaf, Nabih bin Al-Hajjaj and his brother Munbih bin Al-Hajjaj. All were on the alert. As night advanced, they posted assassins around the Prophet’s house. Thus they kept vigil all night long, waiting to kill him the moment he left his house early in the morning, peeping now and then through a hole in the door to make sure that he was still lying in his bed. [Ibn Hisham 1/483]

The kuffaar put together a huge coalition at the battle of Ahzaab
They were 10,000 strong and when the Jews of Banu Quraidah saw this
They thought that the muslims will be defeated and hence broke their treaty
And joined the kuffaar against the muslims
Today they put together a coalition of Arab countries and NATO to destroy the dawla

But Allah said:

[Sahih International] And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners. (Aali Imran 3:54)

It is worthy of mentioning that if you join a coalition to fight the Muslims
You become a kaafir because it means you have no al walaa al baraa
Fatwa of ibn Hazm is the proof

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.”

This makes it clear that all the ‘Muslims’ fighting with the coalition are kuffaar

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)."


Another strategy of the kuffaar was that they used to stop the Muslims
From migrating from darul Harb to darul Islam
The Muslims used to migrate in batches of two by two at night

And (remember) when the disbelievers plotted against you (O Muhammad SAW) to imprison you, or to kill you, or to get you out (from your home, i.e. Makkah); they were plotting and Allāh too was planning, and Allāh is the Best of the planners. (Al-Anfal 8:30)

In our midst today, they are doing the same as stated in above ayah
This ayah was revealed more than 1400 years ago
But it holds true even today

Umm Salama (ra) was stopped from migrating
They separated her from her husband, Abu Salama (ra)
And took her baby away from her and broke his arm
She cried for a whole year due to this before she was allowed to go to Madina
They later felt ashamed and gave her back her son
She was going to make hijrah on foot but late had an escort
She was a strong woman
The Prophet (saw) proposed to her after her husband died
She had three reservations and they were that
She was no longer young, she had a temper and had kids
The Prophet (saw) replied that he is not young either, he will pray for her temper
And he wants to help care for her kids
So they got married

Umar (ra) was the only one who migrated with no fear
He was the only one who announced his hijrah
He told them that they will make their wive a widows, kids an orphans and mothers bereave
If they tried to stop him
They left him alone

Ibn ‘Asakir narrated that ‘Ali said: I don’t know of anyone who didn’t emigrate in secret except for ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab; because when he wanted to emigrate he strapped on his sword, put his bow over his shoulder, carried his arrows in his hand, and came to the Ka‘bah where the nobles of Quraysh were in the courtyard. He performed seven circuits, and then prayed two raka‘at at the Station (of Ibrahim). Then he approached their circle one step at a time and said, “What ugly faces! Whoever wishes to bereave his mother, orphan his children and widow his wife then let him meet me behind this valley.” Not one of them followed him. [The History of the Khalifahs by Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuti]

Today, many people are charged with terrorism in Europe and America
Because they were caught in the airport trying to migrate
Do you see how their hearts are alike?
Many sisters who want to migrate have to look like a tourist
They can't wear hijab
It is halal to take off your hijab to migrate because war is deception

Narrated Ka'b ibn Malik: When the Prophet (SAW) intended to go on an expedition, he always pretended to be going somewhere else, and he would say: "War is deception". [Abu Dawud 2629, Tirmidhi 1681, Ahmed 14312]

And you cannot buy a one way ticket
You have to look like a tourist going to have fun
Put things in your bag like condoms and alcohol - not a Quran
Though you are not going to use them

Question 1: As Salaamu Alaikum Shaykh, I first want to say that may Allah reward you for giving the advice of starting our own Jummah. We have been conducting Jummah for ourselves for over a month now. My question is, Obama today gave a speech about sending in ground troops to start the war against the Dawla and arrogantly said to the world that he will defeat the Dawla. What is your advice to the believers of haqq on what is said?

Answer 1: This is insanity
What he is saying is insanity
The dawla is stronger than the Taliban and for 14 years
They could not defeat the Taliban and they failed miserably  
To think that they can defeat the dawla is wishful thinking
The dawla army is 200,000 fighting men
The dawla is stronger than the taliban

Question 2: Salaam sheikh. I have heard some Muslims say that the reason why Allah (swt) turned the Jews into pigs and swine was not simply because they dismantled the sharia BUT because they ascribed to the deen? Is this true?

Answer 2: The reason why Allah turned the Jews into apes and swine is because
The ape likes to copy people and the swine is shameless
Also, to dismantle the shariah is major kufr not minor
So Allah (swt) punished them for breaking His Law
Anyone who believes to dismantle the sharia is a minor kufr is a zindeeq

Question 3: What is your prediction on the territory the dowla is going to gain inshaAllah?

Answer 3: I don't know how much territory the dawla will gain
Only Allah can answer that question
All I know is that they will not be defeated by an enemy from outside
Because the Prophet (saw) made 3 duas before he died:
1. O Allah, do not allow my ummah to be destroyed by a plague
2. Do not allow my ummah to be defeated by an enemy from outside
Allah accepted these two (above)
3. O Allah, do not allow my ummah to fight between themselves
Allah did not accept that dua
Why? Because your Lord, Prophet, Book and Qibla is one.
So why should you fight between yourselves?
You have to sort it out

Sa’d Ibn Abee Waqqaas (radiyallaahu ’anhu) narrated that the Holy Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) also said: “I asked my Lord for three things, I was granted two; but prevented from one: I asked my Lord that He should not destroy my Ummah with drought and famine, so He granted it to me. I asked my Lord that He should not destroy my Ummah with drowning, so He granted it to me. And I asked Him not to cause my Ummah to fight amongst themselves, but He refused that.” [Muslim 2216]

Question 4: How can we reconcile the hadith of the Prophet and the fact that the Angels write down your life span with another hadith that says that "nothing increases the life span except righteousness"?

Answer 4: There is no contradiction between the hadith
Destiny (Qadr) can be changed by dua

Question 5: Sheikh I missed the bit why we should have our own khutbah? Can you briefly explain why and do we have to be scholars to start our own khutbahs?

Answer 5: There are over 400 topics for khutbah on the blog which you can download
Start with
1. How to be sincere to Allah (swt)
2. How to be sincere to the Quran
3. How to be sincere to the Prophet (saw)
4. How to be sincere to the Umma

These are great topics for khutbah

Question 6: Can you please speak about the burning of the pilot if it was right. And is it permissible to appear like a kafir outside when living in dar 7arb?

Answer 6: Why living in dar harb?
If you are forced to appear like a kaafir it is better that you migrate

Ali (ra) was the first to burn someone alive

They burned the pilot because he was using incendiary bombs
They burned women and children alive
So they gave him the same punishment

Narrated 'Ikrima: Some Zanadiqa (heretics) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'" [Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57)

Uthaymeen passed a fatawa saying you can kill the women and children of the kuffar
If your women and children are killed

And if you punish (your enemy, O you believers in the Oneness of Allāh), then punish them with the like of that with which you were afflicted. But if you endure patiently, verily, it is better for As-Sābirin (the patient ones, etc.). (An-Nahl 16:126)

If they kill you with drowning, you kill them with drowning
If they kill you with fire, you kill him with fire...

Question 7: Can you comment on the Chapel Hill shooting?

Answer 7: Two women and a man were killed in Chapel Hill
I suspect it was a revenge killing
A woman was killed in IS captivity
She was married to one of the IS fighters
She was in a house and the Jordanians bombed the building, and she died
This is just an assumption
It is still being investigated

Joseph Stalin was an atheist and he killed many
Atheist have proven to be the worst people of the world

Man Kills 3 Muslims:

Pol Pot also of Cambodia was also an atheist
They killed millions of people

He (the murderer) said: "“People say nothing can solve the Middle East problem, not mediation, not arms, not financial aid. I say there is something. Atheism.”

Pol Pot of Cambodia killed 8 million because they were not communist enough for him

Dr Harold Shipman of the UK was an atheist Jew
He also killed many
Dr. Shipman killed 500 of his patients with morphine
He was a Jew and a freemason
Likely why there is no movie made of the story
He killed old people
In Europe, they don't like old people so there was no out cry
The most prolific serial killer in human history was Dr Shipman


Question 8: ASsalaamu alaykum Shaikh, concerning halal food, a lot of people who say that they are muslims and sell halal meat in my country don't pray or practice the deen. My question is it halal to eat their slaughter? If not, how do we ascertain that the meat we get is actually halal?

Answer 8: If a person kills the animal and says bismillah, Allahu Akbar
And allows the blood to drain out, it is halal
Even if he is a weak Muslim
The only way you can verify it is to witness the slaughter

Question 9: Can you please speak on Maqdisi. He claims to be salafi jihadi but speaks out against IS. Ibn Baaz and Uthaymeen preached peace with Israel. Qaradawi doesn’t, he approves of suicide bombing while Albani and Bin Baaz consider it suicide. However Qaradawi believes in democracy. What is wrong with our scholars? Why do they believe in parts and disbelieve in others?

Answer 9: Qarawawi is right in some things but wrong in other things
Suicide bombing is only allowed against military targets not civilian
It is not allowed to preach peace with Israel
Peace with Israel is haram
16:126 is the hujjah for burning the pilot
Maqdisi has gone astray because he is preaching against the dawla
Take the good from these scholars and leave the bad
This is the stance that you have to take with all scholars

They are human beings
