Refuting The Lie Concerning Kufr Doona Kufr
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

Edited and formatted by AT38
What do you understand regarding kufr doona kufr?
Kufr doona kufr means minor kufr
There are two types of kufr: major and minor
What is this lie about?
Whenever a leader dismantles the shariah, what the leader did is a minor kufr.
The leader is not a kaafir, he is a faasiq
When he practices istibdaal (replacing the shariah with man-made laws), it is minor kufr.
The only time he commits major kufr is when he dismantles the shariah and
He believes in his heart that istibdaal is halal.
This is the lie.
The people who promote this believe are the Madkhali
And they claim to follow Bin Baaz, Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah)
This is the creed of the murjia
A murji is a person who refuses to make takfir even when the text is clear
He likes to say I am not knowledgeable enough to make takfir on this person
I will leave it up to the scholars to make takfir
Who told you that you have to be a scholar to make takfir? This is a lie
If you see a woman with a sari and a red dot on her forehead,
You don't have to be a scholar to make takfir on that person.
If a person should draw the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) in a cartoon
You don’t have to be a scholar to make takfr on him
It is a big lie to say we cannot make takfir on people
As for the statement, whenever a person commits major kufr
You are not allowed to make takfir on that person unless
He makes his kufr halal with his tongue - is another big lie
If you are not sincere, you will fall into the web of these wicked scholars
The Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) said:
Abu Dhar said, "I was with the Prophet (SAW) one day and I heard him saying: "There is something I fear for my Ummah than the Dajjal." It was then that I became afraid, so I said: "Oh Rasool Allah! Which thing is that?" He (SAW) said; "Misguided and astray scholars." [Musnad Ahmad (5/145) No. 21334 and 21335]
Only the sincere ones will escape the web of these wicked scholars
Who are peddling falsehoods in the deen of Muhammad (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam)
Narrated Muawiya: I heard the Prophet (SAW) saying, "If Allah wants to do good to a person, He makes him comprehend the religion. I am just a distributor, but the grant is from Allah. (And remember) that this nation (true Muslims) will keep on following Allah's teachings strictly and they will not be harmed by any one going on a different path till Allah's order (Day of Judgment) is established." [al-Bukhari (71) and Muslim (1037)]
They claim that they have a hadith of Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) regarding kufr doona kufr
What did the ulama say about this hadith?
What is the status of this hadith according to Sulaiman Al Ulwaan (May Allah release him)
What has reached us from Ibn Abbas from his saying “Kufr Duna Kufr” is not reliable. It is narrated in Al-Haakim in his Mustadraaq (Vol. 2/313) by the way of Hisham Ibn Hujaayr on the authority of Tawoos who heard it from Ibn Abbas. However, Hisham is declared Da’eef by Yahya Ibn Ma’een and Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal. On the other hand it is narrated to us from Abdur-Razaaq in his Tafseer on the authority of Mu’aamr who heard from Ibn Tawoos that his father said he asked Ibn Abbas about Allah’s saying: (“And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed such are the Kafirun.”)
It is clear from Ibn Abbas’s words that Kufr Al-Akbar is of different classifications, and some forms are more severe than others. For example, the Kufr of the one who doesn’t believe in Allah and the Last Day, is more extreme than the Hakim [Ruler] who doesn’t rule by what Allah revealed. It is clear that Kufr of the Hakim who ‘Rules by other than what Allah revealed’ is less severe than the one who doesn’t believe in Allah and the Last day. Still, we cannot say that this Hakim remains a Muslim and that his ruling is simply Kufr Al-Asghar. We say he has left the religion because of putting aside and removal of the Sharee’ah, and according to Ibn Katheer, there is Ijmaa about this. See “Al-Bidayah Wa-Nihayah” (Vol. 13/119) [At-Tibyan Sharh’ Nawaqidh Al-Islam by Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab; explanation and footnotes by Sulmayman al-Alwaan, Pg. 38]
This hadith formed the basis of their new religion "cementing the thrones of the apostate leaders"
This hadith which the Saudi Salafis quote is not reliable
If something is not reliable, it is haram to take it into your aqeeda
Hisham is declared Da’eef by Yahya Ibn Ma’een (rahimahullah)
And Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (rahimahullah)
Ibn Jareer (rahimahullah) has the following to say about 5:44
…And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers. (Al-Ma’idah 5:44)
Ibn Jareer reported, “Narrated to me, Hunaad and narrated to me, Ibn Wakee’ah who said, ‘Narrated to me, my father from Sufyaan from Mu’amr Ibn Rashaad from Ibn Tawoos from his father from Ibn ‘Abbas, “and whosoever does not judge by what Allaah has revealed, such are the disbelievers”. [He said] ‘In it there is Kufr, but not like Kufr in His Angels and His Books and His Messengers’ [Tafseer Ibn Jareer, Vol. 6/256]
Comment: I say this isnaad is saheeh, and what is apparent is that all the statement is from Ibn ‘Abbas rahimahullah. And many people have fallen for this athar due to its isnaad and have not noticed the idraaj (interpolation) which is made clear by the narration found in the collection of Imaam ‘Abdurazzaaq (who said): “We were informed by Mu’amar from Ibn Tawoos from his father: “Ibn ‘Abbas was asked about His saying: “and whoever does not rule by what Allaah has revealed, such are the disbelievers”, [so] he said: “In it there is kufr” (hiya bihi kufrun). Ibn Tawoos said: “But not like kufr in His angels, and His books and His messengers”‘end.
Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) made takfir on those who do not govern by the sharia
He is saying there are different types of kuffaar and different types of kufr
Examples to make it simple for you:
A man can believe in Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) yet dismantles the sharia
He is an apostate
A Christian and a Hindu are both kuffaar but the Hindu is more extreme
You can marry a Christian girl and eat their slaughter, but not the Hindu
So the one who rejects the sharia is as bad as the Hindu
WHAT IS THE OPINION OF THE SCHOLARS REGARDING THE NARRATOR OF THE HADITH HISHAM IBN HUJAYR
al-Haafith Ibn Nasr said: “Narrated to us Yahya bin Yahya, Sufyaan bin ‘Uyaynah informed us, from Hishaam (bin Hujayr), from Tawoos that Ibn ‘Abbas said concerning His saying, “…such are the disbelievers”, he said ‘It is not the kufr which you are going to’.
Comment: And this sanad, its people are trustworthy except Hishaam bin Hujayr al-Makki, for he has been weakened by the great a`immah: Such as ‘Ali bin al-Madeenee, Yahya ibn Ma’een. [see: al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel, volume 9/54] ‘Abdullaah bin Ahmad said: “I asked Yahya about Hishaam bin Hujayr and he weakened him very much”. [See al-‘Ilal wa ma’rifat ar-Rijaal, volume 2/30]
And he also said: “I heard my father [Imaam Ahmad] say: ‘Hishaam bin Hujayr is a Makki, and he is weak in hadeeth’” [See: Ibid, volume 1/204] And also, al-’Uqayli recalled him in ad-Du’afaa’.
This hadith that they hang on to is considered a weak hadith
It is haram to base your creed on a hadith which is weak
You are only allowed to base your creed on a hadith that is sahih
STATEMENTS OF THE SAHABAH AND THE TABI'EE ABOUT JUDGES WHO TAKE BRIBES TO PASS THE WRONG VERDICT
‘Abdullaah bin Mas’ood said, as mentioned by Ibn Katheer in his tafseer, that he was asked about bribery in judgement, so he said: “That is the very kufr (thaak alkufr)”, and then he quoted the ayah, this is also mentioned by Ibn Jareer, who has numerous quotes for this, one of which is from the path of Masrooq who said: “I asked Ibn Mas’ood about as-suht (ill-gotten wealth), is it [like] bribery in judgment?” So he said: “No, whoever does not rule by what Allaah has revealed then he is a kaafir, whoever does not rule by what Allaah has revealed then he is a thaalim, whoever does not rule by what Allaah has revealed then he is a faasiq, but as-suht is when you help someone to do something oppressive, so he gives you a gift, so you accept it” [See Tafseer of at-Tabari, 6/240].
And at-Tabaraani collected, with a saheeh isnaad, from Ibn Mas’ood that he said: “Bribery in judgement is kufr, and it is amongst the people ill gotten wealth” [Ibn Hajr al-Makki collected it in az-Zawaajir, volume 2/189, Daar al-Ma’rifah print 1402 AH]
And ‘Abd bin Humayd collected from ‘Ali, radiAllaahu ta’ala ‘anh, that he was asked about as-suht (ill-gotten wealth), he said: “It is bribery”, so he was asked, “In rulership”, he replied: “That is the very kufr” (thaak al-kufr)”. And al-Bayhaqi collected from Ibn Mas’ood similar to this statement”. [See, Tafseer Rooh al-Ma’ani, for al-Aloosee, volume 3, part 6, page 140]
And similar to this has been said by the tabi’een, from them: al-Hasan al-Basri, Sa’eed bin Jubayr, Ibraheem an-Nakh’ee, as-Suddi, Ibn Qudaamah al-Hanbali said: “Allaah ta’ala said: “Akaloona lis-suht” (Takers of ill-gotten wealth), al-Hasan and Sa’eed bin Jubayr explained it to be, “It is bribery”, and said: “If the judge takes bribes, then it reaches alkufr”. [al-Mughni ma’ ash-Sharh al-Kabeer, volume 11/437-438]
al-Qaasimi said regarding its tafseer, as has been mentioned in al-Lubaab, that Ibn Mas’ood, al-Hasan and an-Nakh’iee said: “These ayaat are general regarding the Jews, and regarding this ummah, so whoever takes bribes, and replaces the judgement of Allaah, so he ruled by other than what Allaah has revealed, then he has disbelieved, and oppressed and become evil, and to it went as-Suddi [And this statement of as-Suddi, was recalled by Ibn Katheer, and Ibn Jareer collected with his sanad: “Whoever does not rule by what Allaah has revaled”, he [as-Suddi] said: “Whoever does not rule by what I revealed, so he left it intentionally, and trangressed whilst knowing, then he is from the disbelievers”. See Tafseer at-Tabari, volume 6/257.], and it is the apparent meaning of the statement [i.e. the ayah, See Mahaasin at-Ta`weel, for al-Qaasimi, volume 6/215, Daar al-Fikr print, 1398 AH]
Are those who take bribes to pass the wrong verdict still Muslim?
No, it is an act of major kufr.
STATEMENTS OF THE ULAMAA REGARDING DISMANTLING THE SHARIAH
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
"A scholar who abandons what has learnt from the Quran and the Sunnah and follows a ruler who does not rule in accordance with the teaching of Allah and His Messenger is an apostate and a disbeliever who deserves punishment in this world and in the hereafter " Fatawa Ibn Taymiyyah, Volume 35/373
IBN KATHIR (RAHIMAHULLAH) MAKING TAKFIR ON THOSE WHO DISMANTLE THE SHARIAH
“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 Kathir (rahimahullah) didn’t say the ijmaa of the scholars but ijmaa of the muslims
So the mere dismantling of the sharia makes you a kafir
You do not have to do istihlaal like the Saudi salafis claim
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)]
‘ALLAMA AL-SHINQITI MAKING TAKFIR ON THOSE WHO DISMANTLE THE SHARIAH
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. 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)]
THE STATEMENT OF MUHAMMAD IBRAHIM IN REGARDS TO TAWHEED HAKIMIYYAH AND TAWHEED IBADA
MUHAMMAD IBRAHIM said in page 6 of his book tahkeem qawaaneen (Ruling by the Law) judging to Allah alone is the twin half of worshipping Allah alone.
FATWA OF AHMAD SHAKIR MAKING TAKFIR ON THOSE WHO DISMANTLE THE SHARIAH
“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 UTHAYMEEN MAKING TAKFIR ON ALL THOSE WHO REPLACE THE SHARIAH
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 BIN BAAZ MAKING TAKFIR ON ALL THOSE WHO REPLACE THE SHARIAH OF ALLAH
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)]
Ibn Baaz says he doesn’t care what is in your heart
As long as you dismantle the sharia, you are a kafir
This is why this fatwa is my favorable fatwa concerning this issue
These people who believe the leaders are still Muslims even after they dismantle the sharia
Are quick to call you a khawaarij when you call for the sharia
I brought you seven scholars making takfir on all the people who dismantle the shariah
I brought you 10 fatawa from seven scholars
To believe in Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is not enough to make you a Muslim
When you believe in Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), that is half of the shahada
You have to practice the second half which is to reject the taghoot
The evidence is 2:256
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)
You can't be a Muslim until you reject the taghoot
Some ‘scholars’ believe in democracy or have become palace scholars
Passing fatawa for the palace
Everyone is telling you to believe in Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala),
But who is telling you to reject the taghoot? No one
This is why they are in this plight
Let me remind the murjia, when you claim to dismantle the shariah is minor kufr
You are insinuating that when Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) turned the Jews
Into apes and swine, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) was overreacting
Say (O Muhammad SAW to the people of the Scripture) : "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hellfire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)." (Al-Ma'idah 5:60)
Secondly, when you pronounce the Muslim a khawaarij, especially a shaikh
You have to debate him publicly to disgrace him and warn the muslims against him
When the khawaarij emerged in the era of Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu)
They were debated publically
To call someone a khawaarij, it means he is a dog of jahannam
Ali sent Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) to debate them and many were guided
Back to the fold of ahlu Sunnah wal jamaa
Let me remind the Murjia, who call people khawaarij, the Prophet
(Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) said:
On the authority of Ubada bin As-Samit the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “…topple the leader if you see clear kufr…” [al-Bukhari (7056) and Muslim (1709)]
إلا أن تروا كفرا بواحا
Let me remind you, the murjia, may the curse of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) be upon you
Ibn Hazm has made takfir on all the Muslims who take sides with the kufr in the fatwa below
Ibn Hazm stated "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.” [Stated in Al-Muhalla (11/138)]
No two Muslims disagree on the verdict that if you help
The kuffaar against the Muslims you have become a kafir
This is the crime of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar etc
Who are helping the crusaders to bomb and kill the muslims of the dawla
You claim to follow Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab (rahimahullah),
But he has also made takfir on low life scums of the earth like you
MUHAMMAD IBN ABDUL WAHHAB (RAHIMAHULLAH) MAKING TAKFIR ON ALL THE MUSLIMS WHO TAKE SIDES WITH THE KUFFAR AGAINST FELLOW 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).”
ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA) MAKING TAKFIR
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) here is making takfir on people who make a mockery of Islam.
If you see a muslim woman in niqab and you say ‘ninja’
You become a kafir and the hujjah is 9:65-66
If you ask them (about this), they declare: "We were only talking idly and joking." Say: "Was it at Allah, and His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and His Messenger (SAW) that you were mocking?" (At-Tawbah 9:65)
Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after you had believed. If We pardon some of you, We will punish others amongst you because they were Mujrimun (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, criminals, etc.). (At-Tawbah 9:66)
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) making takfir on people who eat haram meat
This meat is animals that die by themselves
Eat not (O believers) of that (meat) on which Allah's Name has not been pronounced (at the time of the slaughtering of the animal), for sure it is Fisq (a sin and disobedience of Allah). And certainly, the Shayatin (devils) do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them [by making AlMaytatah (a dead animal) legal by eating it],
then you would indeed be Mushrikun (polytheists) [because they (devils and their friends) made lawful to you to eat that which Allah has made unlawful to eat and you obeyed them by considering it lawful to eat, and by doing so you worshipped them, and to worship others besides Allah is polytheism]. (Al-An'am 6:121)
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) making takfir on those who dismantle the Shariah
…And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers. (Al-Ma’idah 5:44)
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) making takfir on Jews and Christians even before the hujjah was brought to them in the ayah below
Those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and among Al-Mushrikun, were not going to leave (their disbelief) until there came to them clear evidence. (Al-Baiyinah 98:1)
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is making takfir on those who say Isa (‘alayhi salam) is Allah and those who believe in the trinity
Surely, they have disbelieved who say: "Allah is the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary)." But the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: "O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Verily, whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers) there are no helpers. (Al-Ma'idah 5:72)
Surely, disbelievers are those who said: "Allah is the third of the three (in a Trinity)." But there is no ilah (god) (none who has the right to be worshipped) but One Ilah (God -Allah). And if they cease not from what they say, verily, a painful torment will befall the disbelievers among them. (Al-Ma'idah 5:73)
In the next ayah, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is making takfir on those who join the kafir army
The only army you can join is the Muslim army
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)
This is the ayah used by the scholars to say the only army you can join and Die
Is the army of the mujahideen
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) making takfir on the grave worshippers
Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say) : "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (Az-Zumar 39:3)
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is also making takfir on the Shia, Sufi and the Berailvis
If you invoke (or call upon) them, they hear not your call, and if (in case) they were to hear, they could not grant it (your request) to you. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping them. And none can inform you (O Muhammad SAW) like Him Who is the AllKnower (of each and everything). (Fatir 35:14)
They are the grave worshippers of the ummah
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) makes takfir on those who take their Priest and Rabbis as lord instead of Allah
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 1: Is it true that the statement of Ibn Abbas "kufr doona kufr" was used to debate the khawaarij when they claimed it was kufr akbar for the sahabah to fight one another in battle?
Answer 1: This is the explanation given by some scholars about the statement
Because he went and debated the khawaarij who made takfir on the sahabah
For fighting and killing each other
So he told them it is not the kufr they think but it is lesser kufr
Meaning, the sahabah fighting each is lesser kufr
Question 2: Can I listen to Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad (May Allah release him) and salafi media in UK? Should I read the translation in the Noble Quran or should I read a different translation?
Answer 2: The noble Quran is good, but it has 4 mistakes
Mistakes 1: is 5:44
And whosoever does not judge by what Allāh has revealed, such are the Kāfirûn (i.e. disbelievers - of a lesser degree as they do not act on Allāh's Laws). (Al-Ma'idah 5:44)
There is no such thing as a kafir of a lesser degree
Mistake 2: 15:26 they did not translate the word hama (black mud) properly
Mistake 3: 8:60
And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allāh and your enemy,…
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) said strike terror in the heart of the kaafir.
They said threaten
The Arabic word is turhibboona means to strike terror in the heart of the kaafir
Mistake 4: 42:21 Dr. Ghali translated the word properly to say legislate, but the noble quran used a different word
Or have they partners with Allāh (false gods), who have instituted for them a religion which Allāh has not allowed. And had it not been for a decisive Word (gone forth already), the matter would have been judged between them. And verily, for the Zālimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers), there is a painful torment. (Ash-Shura 42:21)
Apart from these mistakes, the noble Quran is okay
Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad (May Allah release him) and Salafi media are ok
Abu Waleed, Anjem Chaudhry and Abu Barra have no flaws in their aqeeda
They are sincere
Question 3: Can you elaborate on Adam (‘alayhi salam) & Hawa. When they were in heaven, were they naked and unware of their nakedness and then realized after eating from the tree or were they clothed and then became naked after they ate from the tree?
Answer 3: They were clothed, but when they disobeyed Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala)
Their clothing was taken away
Question 4: How can you distinguish between a Saudi Salafi and madkhali?
Answer 4: There is no difference between the two; they are the same
There are two types of Salafis: Saudi Salafi and Salafi Jihadi
The Caliph (hafidhahullah) is a Salafi Jihadi
Saudi Salafi and Madkhali are the same Zindeeq
Question 5: Is the general ruling regarding the madkhalis and Saudi salafis that they are kufaar, believing in taghout and worshipping their apostate leaders? Should they be fought like the rawafidh and secularists?
Answer 5: there is no difference between the rawafidh and Saudi Salafi
The shia practice the shirk of quboor (worshipping the grave)
The saudi salafis practice shirk of qusoor (worshipping the palace)
They are the two sides of a sword
Both are bombing the dawla
The Shia and the Salafi are both kuffaar
The Saudi Salafis are in bed with the Taghoot
This is why they are kuffaar
How can you be a Muslim and be in the bed with the taghoot at the same time?
Question 6: Asalaaamu alaykum, Shaikh does a divorced sister need a wali to remarry? Who can be her wali? There is a hadeeth where the prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) said the one who Marries without a wali is a fornicator can anybody find it?
Ayshah reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “If any woman marries without the consent of her guardian then her marriage is void. Her marriage is void. Her marriage is void. If he cohabits with her then for her is the dower with which her immodesty is turned lawful. And if they dispute with one another then the ruler is the guardian of one who has no gurardian”. [Tirmidhi 1104, Ahmed 24426, Abu Dawud 2083, Ibn e Majah 1879]
Abu Hanifa (rahimahullah) said a girl doesn't need a wali,
But the other scholars (Malik, Shafi and Hanbali) agreed that she does
If a hanafi girl marries without having a wali, you cannot say that she committed zina
She acted according to her madhab
The only time you can say her marriage is batil is if she married a kaafir, munafiq or zindeeq
If the man is a kaafir, munafiq, zindeeq or apostate than the marriage has to be annulled
A scholar has to examine her husband to pass the verdict
Question 7: I understand you won’t do a lecture on dar al 7arb since muslims can’t cope with the knowledge. Isn’t that withholding knowledge? And isn’t it silly for muslims to not be able to deal with knowledge even if its controversial, regardless I am very thirsty for this knowledge. Is it possible I do a one on one with you? If so, how and when? I’m in the process of receiving ahkam ahl al dhimma by Ibn Al Qayim, is that sufficient? I also understand most of the controversial rulings are just from Abu Hanifa, such as the liquor store and such. Would it be wrong to follow Abu Hanifa and ignore the majority fatawa by the scholars? I am living in dar 7arb and it is important to me to know all the information so I can apply it. What should I do? Since a liquor store is selling khamr, can we sell a different kind of khamr? jazakallah khayr.
Answer 7: Abu Hanifa says that it is halal to sell khamr to the kuffaar in darul harb
He also said that you can put your money in the bank and take the interest
You can also place a bet against a kafir if you know for sure that you will win
Anyone who uses their money to fight Islam, you can steal from him.
But if they are not, you cannot steal from them
This is a very controversial topic
You can sell anything to a kafir because when they die, their body and soul are condemned to hell forever
The book, al Mughnee by Ibn Qudaama is a book I studied in the university that included fiqh issues on darul'harb
