NOTES TYPED LIVE BY AT7 AND AT19
EDITED AND FORMATTED BY AT38
Which scholar wrote the book Al Usool At Thalatha?
It was written by Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab (rh)
And these 3 principles came from the 3 questions you will be asked in the grave
The life of the barzak
1. WHO IS YOUR LORD?
2. WHO IS YOUR PROPHET?
3. WHAT IS YOUR RELIGION?
Many scholars did a sharh of these 3 principles
The importance of these 3 principles cannot be over emphasized
FIRST QUESTION: WHO IS YOUR LORD?
The answer is, my Lord is Allah (swt)
If you are asked why do you believe in Allah?
Why do you believe there is a God?
Why aren’t there any atheists or agnostics among Muslims?
And why Muslims are very fervent in their love for Allah and they don’t allow mocking God?
Why is it that Christians and others allow blasphemy and not Muslims?
They will ask you what if there is no God?
How are you so sure that there is a God?
Whenever you are asked these questions by an agnostic or an atheist you need to debate them
A DEBATE WITH AN ATHEIST
1. THE SUN
The sun is the very first argument you should use to debate them
This is because Allah (swt) Himself spoke about the sun in 41:37
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)
Say to the atheist if the sun should be too close to us we would all die of heat stroke
And there will be no vegetation
And if the sun should be far away from us we would all freeze
But the sun is accurately positioned in order to sustain life on the earth
2. THE ALTERNATION OF NIGHT AND DAY
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)
Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying) : "Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire.
(Aali Imran 3:191)
If the world had come about by accident we would have 10 years of night alone
Or 15 years of daylight alone but they are alternated
And bad weather makes people frustrated
And bad weather causes people to commit suicide
So the alternation in a systemic order proves that there is a God
If it came about by accident it will continue to be by accident
But we see no discrepancy in Allah's creation
Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?" (Al-Mulk 67:3)
Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out. (Al-Mulk 67:4)
3. YOUR ANATOMY
How do you explain the white blood cells in the body
That are responsible for fighting infections in your body
This can only be explained by the intelligent design of Allah
You only catch measles, chicken pox etc only once
This is because you can’t trick the white blood cells twice
Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould), (At-Tin 95:4)
Have you ever been in a museum and there is a masterpiece hanging on the wall and guarded?
Allah said mankind is His masterpiece
Can you look at your face and think of a better place your nose or mouth could be
Or your hands and feet
This is because Allah (swt) gave us the best template
4. THE BIG BANG
Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? (Al-Anbiya 21:30)
The scientist did not tell us anything new because we already read about it in the Quran
Allah described it as coming from Him
He gave us 2 scientific theories in one ayah
The big bang and the creation of living things from water
So if we believe in the big bang as well like Allah said, why do we criticize the kuffaar for it?
We do so because we believe that the big bang was created by Allah
The kuffaar are saying that the big bang came by accident
This is why we are at loggerheads
The kuffaar claim matter cannot be created nor destroyed
The Muslims explained it
We say to them matter cannot be created nor destroyed by man
Because Allah is the Only Creator
So whenever the scientist come with a theory don’t dismiss it
Try to understand it then explain it for them according to the Quran
We don’t agree with the Christians as to who Jesus (as) is and how he came about
And their concept of Allah and the prophets is totally wrong
They believe prophets can commit incest or adultery
So we don’t agree with the kuffaar with regards to anything
You need to give their terms the Islamic explanation
5. WE ALL HAVE A DIFFERENT FINGER PRINT
6. WE ALL HAVE A DIFFERENT DNA
How do you explain we all have a different DNA?
This is used to nail people down in crimes
Every man is unique in their own way
Can’t you see we came about by intelligent design?
7. WE ALL HAVE A DIFFERENT IRIS IN THE EYE
People used to borrow passports to travel to the west and the white man couldn’t tell
But now they can detect the difference from scanning your eyes and looking at the iris
So how can you say we came about by accident?
What do you mean there is no God?
8. EVERY ZEBRA HAS A DIFFERENT STRIPE
Can’t you see this creation?
No 2 zebras have the same stripe
Their designs are different
9. THE HOLY QURAN
How do you explain a book revealed in the 7th century coinciding with all modern day discoveries?
Allah said We sent down the iron - It came from the heavens
And We brought forth iron wherein is mighty power (in matters of war), as well as many benefits for mankind, that Allah may test who it is that will help Him (His religion), and His Messengers in the unseen. Verily, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty. (Al-Hadid 57:25)
And We sent down iron, wherein is great military might and benefits for the people, and so that Allah may make evident those who support Him and His messengers unseen. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might. (Al-Hadid 57:25) Sahih International
How do you explain the embryology in the Quran?
And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth). (Al-Mu'minun 23:12)
Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge) (and lodged it) in a safe lodging (womb of the woman). (Al-Mu'minun 23:13)
Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators. (Al-Mu'minun 23:14)
How do you explain Allah referring to the sun as a lamp?
The sun gives light and the moon reflects it
That is why moon is called a reflector and the sun light
Blessed be He Who has placed in the heaven big stars, and has placed therein a great lamp (sun), and a moon giving light. (Al-Furqan 25:61)
How do you explain the predictions of the holy Quran?
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)
The battle took place in Jordan between the Persians who worship fire
And the Romans who worshipped God
The Muslims were devastated by the loss of the Romans
So Allah revealed this verse in surah Rum
The lowest land is Jordan
Narrated Abu Sa'eed: "On the Day of (the battle of) Badr, the Romans had a victory over the Persians. So the believers were pleased with that, then the following was revealed: Alif Lam Mim. The Romans have been defeated..." up to His saying: '...the believers will rejoice. (30:1-4)" He said: "So the believers were happy with the victory of the Romans over the Persians. (Jami At Tirmdhi: (1/43) Hadith 2935)
This was a prediction in the Quran
And the kuffaar of Makkah were teasing the Muslims
But like Allah predicted the Romans made a comeback and defeated the Persians on the day of the battle of Badr
So the Muslims had double reasons to rejoice
How do you explain the discovery of pharaoh’s body?
This point was why Maurice Bucauille
He a scientist that embraced Islam
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)
Allah made his body a sign for mankind
It came from the sea where he was perished
How can a kaafir read this Quranic prediction about the body of the pharaoh
Being preserved and yet he rejects faith
The fish did not eat his body and it remained intact for centuries
Fishes eat anything but not his body
I can’t believe the kufr of these kuffaar
However this French scientist embraced Islam after seeing this prediction
Though the French are the armpit of humanity
How can you live to witness this prediction and you go to bed and die as a kaafir?
So we have brought forth many evidences to convince people that there is a God
That there is a Being that created us and everything around us
9. THE FOUR SEASONS OF THE YEAR
If no one was governing the universe there would not have been such an organised alternation of the 4 seasons yearly
SECOND QUESTION: WHO IS YOUR PROPHET?
The answer is Muhammad (saw)
People will ask you why you believe in this man and kill for him
What if he is a false prophet like the others who claimed prophethood?
Why is it that you Muslims can kill for him and not care about the consequences?
The Prophet is closer to the believers than their ownselves, and his wives are their (believers') mothers (as regards respect and marriage). And blood relations among each other have closer personal ties in the Decree of Allah (regarding inheritance) than (the brotherhood of) the believers and the Muhajirun (emigrants from Makkah, etc.), except that you do kindness to those brothers (when the Prophet SAW joined them in brotherhood ties). This has been written in the (Allah's Book of Divine) Decrees (AlLauh AlMahfuz)." (Al-Ahzab 33:6)
Narrated By 'Abdullah bin Hisham: We were with the Prophet and he was holding the hand of 'Umar bin Al-Khattab. 'Umar said to Him, "O Allah's Apostle! You are dearer to me than everything except my own self." The Prophet said, "No, by Him in Whose Hand my soul is, (you will not have complete faith) till I am dearer to you than your own self." Then 'Umar said to him, "However, now, by Allah, you are dearer to me than my own self." The Prophet said, "Now, O 'Umar, (now you are a believer)." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 78, Hadith #628]
It was narrated that Anas said: The Prophet (SAW) said: “No one of you truly believes until I am dearer to him than his father, his son, his own self and all the people.” [Narrated by al-Bukhari (15) and Muslim (44)]
Whosoever dies rejecting faith in Muhammad (saw) after hearing about him will abide in hellfire forever
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]
Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (Al-Baiyinah 98:6)
He is going to say to you ‘why do you love the Prophet (saw) so much?’
Why would you kill to protect his name?
A person can be killed for one tweet
There is no other country except Muslim countries that do this
They will ask you ‘how do you know he is a real Prophet?‘
You say to them, A fake Prophet cannot bring a book that coincides with modern times
Secondly, a fake Prophet doesn't make predictions or is blessed with miracles
THE MANY MIRACLES OF MUHAMMAD (SAW)
1. THE HOLY QURAN
Even though the book was revealed in the 7th century,
It has no scientific or grammatical errors
And the Prophet whom it was revealed to was unlettered
The Quran coincides with modern day scientific discoveries
He has created the heavens without any pillars, that you see and has set on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with you. And He has scattered therein moving (living) creatures of all kinds. And We send down water (rain) from the sky, and We cause (plants) of every goodly kind to grow therein. (Luqman 31:10)
Have We not made the earth as a bed, (An-Naba 78:6)
And the mountains as pegs? (An-Naba 78:7)
The ayah regarding the mountain as pegs was brought above
The verses about the two seas:
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)
Another scientific fact is the verses about the front lobe of the brain used to lie
Nay! If he (Abû Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, (Al-'Alaq 96:15)
A lying, sinful forelock! (Al-'Alaq 96:16)
This is something that the kuffaar discovered only yesterday
2. THE SPLITTING OF THE MOON
The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder (the people of Makkah requested Prophet Muhammad SAW to show them a miracle, so he showed them the splitting of the moon). (Al-Qamar 54:1)
And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic." (Al-Qamar 54:2)
3. THE MULTIPLICATION OF FOOD
When Jabir's (ra) father died he was trying to figure out how he would pay his debt
Narrated Jabir: My father had died in debt. So I came to the Prophet and said, "My father (died) leaving unpaid debts, and I have nothing except the yield of his date palms; and their yield for many years will not cover his debts. So please come with me, so that the creditors may not misbehave with me." The Prophet went round one of the heaps of dates and invoked (Allah), and then did the same with another heap and sat on it and said, "Measure (for them)." He paid them their rights and what remained was as much as had been paid to them. (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 780)
4. THE MULTIPLICATION OF WATER
Narrated ‘Abdullah: We used to consider miracles as Allah’s Blessings, but you people consider them to be a warning. Once we were with Allah’s Apostle on a journey, and we ran short of water. He said, “Bring the water remaining with you.” The people brought a utensil containing a little water. He placed his hand in it and said, “Come to the blessed water, and the Blessing is from Allah.” I saw the water flowing from among the fingers of Allah’s Apostle , and no doubt, we heard the meal glorifying Allah, when it was being eaten (by him). BUKHARI Volume 4, Book 56, Number 779:
5. SUPPLICATION FOR RAIN
Narrated Anas: A man came to the Prophet on a Friday while he (the Prophet) was delivering a sermon at Medina, and said, "There is lack of rain, so please invoke your Lord to bless us with the rain." The Prophet looked at the sky when no cloud could be detected. Then he invoked Allah for rain. Clouds started gathering together and it rained till the Medina valleys started flowing with water. It continued raining till the next Friday. Then that man (or some other man) stood up while the Prophet was delivering the Friday sermon, and said, "We are drowned; Please invoke your Lord to withhold it (rain) from us" The Prophet smiled and said twice or thrice, "O Allah! Please let it rain round about us and not upon us." The clouds started dispersing over Medina to the right and to the left, and it rained round about Medina and not upon Medina. Allah showed them (the people) the miracle of His Prophet and His response to his invocation. Bukhari Vol 8, Book 73, No 115
6. THE LIGHT OF THE TWO COMPANIONS
Two of the companions of the Prophet departed from him on a dark night and were led by two lights like lamps (going in front of them from Allah as a miracle) lighting the way in front of them, and when they parted, each of them was accompanied by one of these lights till he reached their (respective) houses. Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 8, No 454
7. THE CRYING OF THE STEM FROM THE DATE PALM TREE
The Prophet used to deliver his sermons while standing beside a trunk of a date palm. When he had the pulpit made, he used it instead. The trunk started crying and the Prophet went to it, rubbing his hand over it (to stop its crying). Bukhari Vol 4, Book 56, No 783
8. HIS MEALS USED TO GLORIFY ALLAH
There is no doubt; we heard the meal glorifying Allah, when it was being eaten (by him). [Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 783]
9. THE EXPULSION OF A LIAR’S BODY BY THE EARTH
There was a Christian who embraced Islam and read Surat-al-Baqara and Al-Imran, and he used to write (the revelations) for the Prophet. Later on he returned to Christianity again and he used to say: "Muhammad knows nothing but what I have written for him." Then Allah caused him to die, and the people buried him, but in the morning they saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, "This is the act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and took his body out of it because he had run away from them." They again dug the grave deeply for him, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, "This is an act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and threw his body outside it, for he had run away from them." They dug the grave for him as deep as they could, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. So they believed that what had befallen him was not done by human beings and had to leave him thrown (on the ground). Vol 4, Book 56, No 814: Bukhari
10. THE SPEECH OF THE WOLF
Narrated Unais bin 'Amr: Ahban bin Aus said, "I was amongst my sheep. Suddenly a wolf caught a sheep and I shouted at it. The wolf sat on its tail and addressed me, saying, 'Who will look after it (i.e. the sheep) when you will be busy and not able to look after it? Do you forbid me the provision which Allah has provided me?' "Ahban added, "I clapped my hands and said, 'By Allah, I have never seen anything more curious and wonderful than this!' On that the wolf said, 'There is something (more curious) and wonderful than this; that is, Allah's Apostle in those palm trees, inviting people to Allah (i.e. Islam).' "Unais bin 'Amr further said, "Then Ahban went to Allah's Apostle and informed him what happened and embraced Islam.)" palm trees or other trees and share the fruits with me." Bukhari:: Vol 3, Book 39, No 517
11. THE PROPHET’S NIGHT JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM (AL ISRAA WAL MI’RAAJ)
Israa means the night’s journey to Jerusalem
And Mi’raaj means the Ascension to the Heavens
Glorified (and Exalted) be He (Allāh) [above all that (evil) they associate with Him] [Tafsir Qurtubī, Vol. 10, Page 204] Who took His slave (Muhammad SAW) for a journey by night from Al-Masjid-al-Harām (at Makkah) to the farthest mosque (in Jerusalem), the neighbourhood whereof We have blessed, in order that We might show him (Muhammad SAW) of Our Ayāt (proofs, evidences, lessons, signs, etc.). Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Al-Isra 17:1)
12. THE SPLITTING OF THE PROPHET'S (SAW) CHEST
Have We not caused thy bosom to dilate, (1) And eased thee of the burden (2) Which weighed down thy back; (3) And exalted thy fame? (4) (Surah 94:1-3)
13. THE CAMEL OF JABIR (RA)
Narrated Jabir: While I was riding a (slow) and tired camel, the Prophet passed by and beat it and prayed for Allah's Blessings for it. The camel became so fast as it had never been before. The Prophet then said, "Sell it to me for one Uqiyya (of gold)." I said, "No." He again said, "Sell it to me for one Uqiyya (of gold)." I sold it and stipulated that I should ride it to my house. When we reached (Medina) I took that camel to the Prophet and he gave me its price. I returned home but he sent for me (and when I went to him) he said, "I will not take your camel. Take your camel as a gift for you." (Various narrations are mentioned here with slight variations in expressions relating the condition that Jabir had the right to ride the sold camel up to Medina). Bukhari, Vol 3, Book 50, No 879
This camel lived for many years; over 24 years
14. THE VOMITING OF THE TWO WOMEN
Ubaid, the freed slave of the Prophet (SAW), reported “Two women were once fasting during the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger and they almost died of thirst. This was mentioned to the Prophet (SAW) but he turned away from (allowing) them (to break the fast). Then they were mentioned to him again, so he called for them and ordered them to vomit, i.e. throw up, what was in their stomachs. So they both vomited and filled up a bowl with puss, blood and pieces of flesh. Then the Prophet (SAW) said: ‘These two fasted by refraining from what Allah made lawful for them. but they broke their fast by doing what Allah made unlawful for them. One of them sat with the other and they began to eat from the flesh of people.’” [Musnad Ahmad (5/431) No. 23703]
15. CURING THE EYE OF ALI (RA)
Narrated Sahl bin Sad: That he heard the Prophet on the day (of the battle) of Khaibar saying, "I will give the flag to a person at whose hands Allah will grant victory." So, the companions of the Prophet got up, wishing eagerly to see to whom the flag will be given, and everyone of them wished to be given the flag. But the Prophet asked for 'Ali. Someone informed him that he was suffering from eye-trouble. So, he ordered them to bring 'Ali in front of him. Then the Prophet spat in his eyes and his eyes were cured immediately as if he had never any eye-trouble. 'Ali said, "We will fight with them (i.e. infidels) till they become like us (i.e. Muslims)." The Prophet said, "Be patient, till you face them and invite them to Islam and inform them of what Allah has enjoined upon them. By Allah! If a single person embraces Islam at your hands (i.e. through you), that will be better for you than the red camels." Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 192
16. CURING THE SNAKE BITE OF ABU BAKR (RA) IN THE CAVE
17. HADITH OF UTHMAN BIN HANEEF (RA)
Uthman ibn Haneef (RA) narrated: "A man who was blind came to the Prophet and requested him to pray to Allah that He may cure me of my blindness. He said, 'If you wish, but if you be patient, that is better for you.' He said that the Prophet (SAW) may pray for him. So, the Prophet (SAW) commanded him to make ablution and make it very well and pray in these words, 'O Allah, I ask you and plead to you through your Prophet Muhammad, Prophet of mercy, I plead by your virtue O my Lord, for my need, this one that it be granted to me. O Allah, accept his intercession for me.’" [Tirmidhi 3589, Ibn Majah 1385, Ahmed 17240]
18. RETURNING THE EYE OF QATADA (RA)
….quoting Abd al-Aziz b. Sulaiman b. al-Ghasil, from Asim b. Umar b. Qatada, from his father, from his grandfather Qatada b. al-Numan, that his eye was wounded at Badr and that its pupil came down on his cheekbone. They were about to slice it off, but asked the Messenger of God (SAAS) who said they should not do this. He then said a prayer for him, covering his cheek with his palm. And later you could not tell which of his eyes had been struck!" Ibn Kathirs The Life of the Prophet Muhammad, Al-sira Al-Nabawiyya, Vol 2, reported by Al-Bayhaqi stated, in the Dalail (The Signs), "Abu Sad al-Malini informed us quoting Abu Ahmed b. Adi, quoting Abu Yala, quoting Yahya al-Himmant
19. STONES OF MAKKAH GAVE HIM SALAAM
The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “I know a stone in Makkah that used to salute (give salaams) me before I received the revelation, I still know it now.” (Muslim)
THE PREDICTIONS OF MUHAMMAD (SAW)
How can a false Prophet have accurate predictions?
1. Ammar ibn Yaaser will be killed by the rebellious group
Umm Salamah (RA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “The transgressing party will kill 'Ammar" [Sahih Muslim (4/2236) No. 2916]
Narrated Ibn Abbas (ra). The Holy Prophet (saw) said: "May Allah be Merciful to 'Ammar. He will be killed by a rebellious, aggressive group. He will be inviting them (i.e. his murderers, the rebellious group) to Paradise and they will invite him to Hell-fire." ‘Ammar said, "I seek refuge with Allah from affliction." Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 8, Number 438
Ammar was killed by the army of Muawiyyah (ra) (bughaat - the rebellious group)
2. Zainab bint Jahsh (ra) would be the first of the wives of the Prophet (saw) to die.
Narrated 'Aisha: Some of the wives of the Prophet (SAW) asked him, "Who amongst us will be the first to follow you (i.e. die after you)?" He said, "Whoever has the longest hand." So they started measuring their hands with a stick and Sauda's hand turned out to be the longest. (When Zainab bint Jahsh died first of all in the caliphate of 'Umar), we came to know that the long hand was a symbol of practicing charity, so she was the first to follow the Prophet (SAW) and she used to love to practice charity. (Sauda died later in the caliphate of Muawiya).
Longest hand means kindest or most charitable wife
3. Hassan (ra) will bring peace between two groups
Narrated Abu Bakra: I heard the Prophet talking at the pulpit while al-Hasan was sitting beside him, and he (i.e. the Prophet) was once looking at the people and at another time Al-Hasan, and saying, "This son of mine is a Saiyid (i.e. chief) and perhaps Allah will bring about an agreement between two sects of the Muslims through him." [Sahih Bukhari (5/26) No. 3746]
This prediction came to pass when Hassan stepped down
And gave the Caliphate to Muawiyyah.
This brought peace in the ummah
And Muawiyyah was able to conquer the whole of North Africa
And the Prophet (saw) praised what Hassan (ra) did
4. The Prophet used his sword and drew signs in the sand, showing the sahabah where the leaders of Quraysh will die
Thereafter, the Prophet (SAW) traversed the plain and pointed out the spots to his companions where the enemy chiefs were to fall dead. As it was found later on, his predictions proved entirely correct for not a single Quraish chief was found slain at a place different from that indicated by the Prophet of Allah (SAW). When the two contending forces met, the Prophet (SAW) said: “O Allah, here come the Quraish in their vanity and pride: they contend with Thee calling Thy Prophet a liar.” This was the night of Friday, the seventeenth of Ramadan. At the first manifestation of the morning, the entire force of the Quraish streamed out into the valley and distributed themselves in the battlefield while the Muslims positioned before them in the foreground. (Zad al-Ma’ad, Vol. pp. 343-344)
5. A woman will give birth to her mistress
The Prophet (SAW) said, "That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress, and that you will see barefooted, naked destitute shepherds competing in constructing lofty buildings." It was related by Muslim.
6. The Arabs will compete in constructing lofty buildings
Today, the tallest building is in Dubai
And Saudi Arabia is planning to build a higher one
The Prophet (SAW) said, "That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress, and that you will see barefooted, naked destitute shepherds competing in constructing lofty buildings." It was related by Muslim.
7. The battle of the ditch will be the last campaign against the Muslims by Quraysh
The Battle of the Trench was the last attempt of the Quraysh to destroy Islam and the Muslims. Following their withdrawal in defeat and humiliation, God’s Messenger declared: From this moment we will march upon them; they will no longer be able to raid us. [Bukhari, “Maghazi,” 29; I. Hanbal, 4.262]
8. He (saw) will die before Fatimah (ra) and that she will be the first to join him
Umm Salamah reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) called Fatimah (RA) in the year of the conquest and confided something to her. She wept. Then he conversed with her and she laughed. When Allah’s Messenger (RA) died, she asked her about her weeping and her laughing, she said, “Allah’s Messenger informed me that he would die, so I wept. Then, he told me that I was the chief of the women of paradise, with the exception of Maryam, daughter of Imran, so I laughed. (Tirmidhi 3919)
9. The Muslims will have a navy
Umm Haram added, "I said, 'O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah to make me one of them.'" So the Messenger of Allah ((Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)) prayed to Allah for her and then laid his head down (and slept). Then he woke up smiling (again). (Umm Haram added): I said, "What is making you smile, O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "Some people of my Ummah were shown to me (in my dream) campaigning for the sake of Allah." He said the same as he had said before. I said, "O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah to make me one of them." He said: "You will be among the first ones." Then Umm Haram sailed across the sea during the time of Mu'awiyah ibn Abi Sufyan, and she fell down from her riding animal after coming ashore, and died. [Al-Bukhari (2877) and Muslim (1912)]
If you think women can't go to Jihad, you know nothing about Islam
A woman can go for jihad if she gets the permission of the Amir
Umm Haram asked, "What is making you smile, O Messenger of Allah?" He said: "Some people of my Ummah were shown to me (in my dream) campaigning for the sake of Allah, sailing in the middle of the sea like kings on thrones."Umm Haram added, "I said, 'O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah to make me one of them.'" So the Messenger of Allah ((Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)) prayed to Allah for her and then laid his head down (and slept). Then he woke up smiling (again). (Umm Haram added): I said, "What is making you smile, O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "Some people of my Ummah were shown to me (in my dream) campaigning for the sake of Allah." He said the same as he had said before. I said, "O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah to make me one of them." He said: "You will be among the first ones." Then Umm Haram sailed across the sea during the time of Mu'awiyah ibn Abi Sufyan, and she fell down from her riding animal after coming ashore, and died. [Al-Bukhari (2877) and Muslim (1912)]
10. The rightly guided Caliphs will rule for 30 years after him (saw)
Safinah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger ((Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)) said, “The Khilafah (Caliphate) will last among my ummah for thirty years. Then there will be kingdom after that.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/503) No. 2226 and Musnad Ahmad (5/221) No. 21978]
11. Umar (ra) and Uthman (ra) will die as shaheed
[Anas ibn Malik narrates: The Prophet (sas) was on Mound Uhud with Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman when the mountain trembled. He (sas) said: "Stay still, Uhud for upon you are a Prophet, a siddique and two martyrs." As-Siddique, which was a title given to Abu Bakr bys the Prophet (sas) means the greatest in belief or the quickest to believe. BUKHARI
Anas ibn Maalik, narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) climbed the (mountain) Uhud, Abu Bakr (RA), Umar and Uthman (RA) were with him. The mountain shook while they were on top of it. So, the Prophet (SAW) said, “Steady, Uhud, For, on you are a Prophet, a Siddiq (truthful), and two shahids.” (shahids is martyrs). [Bukhari 3686, Tirmidhi 3717, Ahmed 12107, Abu Dawud 4651]
12. 50 Women for every man
This is because of the many killings
Women will increase in number and men will decrease in number so much so that fifty women will be looked after by one man. [Sahih al-Bukhari Book 3, Hadith 23]
I have 65 predictions, but I will not mention them.
THIRD QUESTION:: WHAT IS YOUR RELIGION?
How do you know that Islam is the truth?
We say to the kaafir, the only religion acceptable to Allah (swt) is Islam
Truly, the religion with Allāh is Islām. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allāh, then surely, Allāh is Swift in calling to account. (Aali Imran 3:19)
The truth is not relative...
And whoever seeks a religion other than Islām, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. (Aali Imran 3:85)
Allah refers to those who reject Islam as the worst of created creatures
Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islām, the Qur'ān and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (Al-Baiyinah 98:6)
Islam is the truth because it is impossible to refute it
It coincides with our natural instincts
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)
It is the fastest growing religion today as Allah predicts in 61:8-9
They intend to put out the Light of Allāh (i.e. the religion of Islām, this Qur'ān, and Prophet Muhammad SAW) with their mouths. But Allāh will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it). (As-Saff 61:8)
He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islāmic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allāh and in His Messenger Muhammed SAW) hate (it). (As-Saff 61:9)
The kuffaar have a luxurious country that gives you dunya,
Yet teenagers turn their back on their filth and go to the Islamic State
The infidels are puzzled by this
So let the Muslims leave if you don't like them
In the time of the Rasool, they did the same thing.
They hated the Muslims but they didn't want them to leave
History repeats itself
The kuffaar don't want you to migrate because if only kuffaar live in Europe and America,
They will have a disaster like Pompeii in Italy
So they want you to live among them to save them from natural disasters
You are the shield, shielding them from natural disaster
Question 1: Salamun Alaika sheikh. How can we explain natural disasters that happen in Muslim lands?
Answer 1: This is the best Hadith to explain natural disasters
“Anas (RA) says, “I went into the presence of Aishah (RA) whilst someone else was seated with her. The person asked, ‘O Mother of the believers, relate to us regarding earthquakes (as to their cause)’ She turned her face away. I (Anas) asked her, ‘Relate to us regarding earthquakes, O Mother of the believers!’ She said, “O Anas, if I were to inform you thereof, you will live a sorrowful life and you will die in this state of grief and you will be raised on the Day of Judgement whilst this fear is in your heart.” I said, “O Mother, relate to me.” She then said, “When a woman removes her clothes in a house other than her husbands (an indication towards adultery), she tears the veil between her and Allah. When she applies perfume to please a male other than her husband, this will be a source of fire and a blemish for her. When the people then begin to commit adultery, consume alcohol and use musical instruments, Allah becomes enraged above the heavens and orders the Earth to shake them. If they repent and refrain, then it is good for them, otherwise Allah will cause it to fall upon them.” I asked, “Is this their punishment?” She said, “It is rather a mercy, means of blessings and admonishment for the believers, and a punishment, display of anger and torment for the unbelievers.” [Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/561) No. 8575 and Kitab Al-Fitan (2/619) No. 1729]
It was narrated that 'Abdullah bin 'Umar said: "The Messenger of Allah (SAW) turned to us and said: 'O Muhajirin, there are five things with which you will be tested, and I seek refuge with Allah lest you live to see them: Immorality never appears among a people to such an extent that they commit it openly, but plagues and diseases that were never known among the predecessors will spread among them. They do not cheat in weights and measures but they will be stricken with famine, severe calamity and the oppression of their rulers. They do not withhold the Zakah of the wealth, but rain will be withheld from the sky, and were it not for the animals, no rain would fall on them. They do not break the covenant with Allah and His Messenger, but Allah will enable their enemies to overpower them and take some of what is in their hands. Unless their leaders rule according to the Book of Allah and seek all good from that which Allah has revealed, Allah will cause them to fight one another. [Sunan Ibn Majah (Arabic/English), Vol. 5, pg. 222-223, Hadith #4019]
Question 2: Is there hijra for the one who leaves his family and wives with no provisions?
Answer 2: The person who makes hijra without leaving his wife with provisions, perhaps he did wrong because of the ayah 4:34
Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allāh has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allāh and to their husbands), and guard in the husband's absence what Allāh orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband's property, etc.). As to those women on whose part you see illconduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allāh is Ever Most High, Most Great. (An-Nisa 4:34)
He has abandoned his family and that is not a proper hijra
Question 3: Is the debt in our time fard to pay back even if one only has enough means for hijra?
Answer 3: The only debt you pay back is that which you owe to your Muslim brothers and sisters.
Also to a kaafir who is a sympathiser to the deen
He doesn’t fight/hate Islam and muslims
Abu Huraira narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: “The one who gets married with the intention not to pay dowry to his wife is a fornicator. And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay back is a thief.” [Ibn Hibban in ‘al-Majruheen’ (2/261) No. 941]
Question 4: A man finds out after marriage he is not attracted to his wife, what should he do?
Answer 4: Make dua to Allah to put love in your heart for your wife
If it reaches the point where no love allows you to not have an erection
Then you should divorce her
Because the purpose of marriage is to protect yourself from zina
Find out first if magic is on your marriage
Because people use this to make you find your wife ugly
And make you unable to consummate your marriage
They may envy you for your wife.
And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife, but they could not thus harm anyone except by Allāh's Leave…(Al-Baqarah 2:102)
