Shaikh bin Baz on “Near-Death Experiences” and that Which is Witnessed

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It is common to hear of individuals who have had “near-death experiences”, vision of seeing strange lights amongst other strange affairs, the following is regarding the story of an individual written in a  newspaper some 30 years ago, however the content is relevant as a generic matter.

The story narrates how a particular individual fell into a coma and it was mistakenly thought that he had actually died, and so he was consequently buried. He was however actually alive, and upon discovering that, he was removed and rescued from his grave 3 days later. That individual then narrated the “strange and fascinating” sights he witnessed whilst buried underground in his grave in the “close-to-death” experience, he makes mentions of Angels etc….[the exact content of the narration is not of importance, however the following response is].

The following statement [summarised] is the response of Shaikh ibn Baz to this individual’s narration of what he apparently witnessed.

“Due to some people believing such false stories I considered it important to highlight and alert the attention of people to the reality of this affair. In reality this is a complete and utter lie falsified by the claimant [narrations of seeing things from the after-life in so called near-death experiences]. It is known in the Legislation of Islam that the 2 Angels do not come to an individual until he actually dies, they do not come to someone who is still alive in this manner [coma or otherwise]  for the questionning [!]. [They] invent such stories of [near-death experiences] of seeing all types of strange affairs for other degrading gains [i.e. money from selling the story]”.

The Mufti ‘Abdul ‘Aziz aale-Shaikh Refutes Claims on Twitter Regarding an Operation to His Eyesight

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It has become apparent that claims have been circulated upon Twitter, that the Mufti Shaikh ‘Abdul’Aziz aale-Shaikh intends to have an operation utilising modern techniques to restore his eyesight at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital, Saudi Arabia. It is claimed this operation will be able to restore possibly 90% of his vision.

Regarding these statements and claims the Shaikh has stated, “There is no basis to what is being spread across social networks, this is a lie, I am content with that which Allah has apportioned for me, and all praise is due to Allah the Lord of the Worlds”.

[via Sahab]

How amazing is the affair of the people! Just as the scholars state, “There is much lying in these times”.

Perhaps we may take a lesson and admonition from this regarding the usage of Twitter and other such networks due to the vast amount of baseless information that is circulated. Only reliable, trustworthy individuals/organisations should be followed for updates and beneficial articles, sources of learning etc. It is not befitting to follow unknown individuals or degraded individuals that will not benefit a person in his affairs.

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Speaks about Al-Allaamah Muhammad Amaan Al-Jaami

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated about Al-Allaamah Muhammad Amaan Al-Jaami (rahimahullaah):

Indeed those youth who ridicule him!; By Allaah I have not tasted the sweetness of the Aqeedah, particularly Tawheed Al-Asmaa Was-Sifaat, except through this man Shaikh Muhammad Amaan.  By Allaah he knows it and is excellent in its exposition.  And by Allaah had all those who ridicule him studied under him, it would have been a noble and honourable (thing) for them.  By Allaah I have not seen anyone more suitable in teaching the Aqeedah and presenting it similar to this man.  I have met those more knowledgeable and greater than him, but with regards to exposition of the (Aqeedah), by Allaah I have not seen the likes of him.  This man is great and well-grounded in Aqeedah; (but) those people ridicule him.

Part 8: The False Principles of Ali Halabi (The Innovator)

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Halabi’s state of affairs exploded when he authored his book titled Manhajus Salaf As-Saalih in 1429AH to wage a so called war against ”Those who exceed the limits when criticising others”; however in reality this book manifested the corrupt principles he used to hide from the Salafis, which he established in order to decfend the people of innovation and aid the Manhaj of Tamyee. This Manhaj of Tamyee was firstly established by Abul Hasan Al-Maribi (The Innovator), but Halabi completed it.

Therefore, Shaikh Rabee and his students refuted and warned against Halabi’s book but they refrained from declaring him an innovator.  Then Halabi and his students set up a website to wage war against Shaikh Rabee and his students, and they were accompanied by some of the people of ignorance and desires who raised his status.  They went into extremes in speaking ill of the Salafi Scholars of this era and described them with the ugliest descriptions.  They also propagated the doubts of ikhwaan al-Muslimeen and that of the illegal partisans until this website became a place for some of the deviants and the people of Tamyee; and until one could not notice a big difference between it and the websites of the ikhwaan al-Muslimeen and the people of illegal partisanship; and until he manifested an affair which no truthful salafi can ignore – his praise of the Book titled ‘Risaalatu Amaan’ a book that contained statements concerning Wahdatul Adyaan [the call to the unity of  Religions].

So the Salafis refuted Halabi for praising this Book and clarified the severity of the affair.  However, his students defended and praised the book, and they warned against those who refuted it.  Then Halabi agreed with his students in their defence of the book and this was a great catastrophe.  Then Shaikh Rabee warned against Halabi and declared him an innovator.

Halabi Defended Those Who Were Refuted For Their deviations

Observations were made concerning the state of affairs of Usaamah Qoosee, Abu Ishaaq Al-Huwaynee, Muhammad Hassaan and Muhammad Husain Yaqoob; but even before a group of people rallied behind them and listened to them, they did utter statements indicating their deviation from the Salafi Manhaj.  Therefore, the Salafis demanded from them a recantation from these deviations, but they did not; rather they launched a war against those Salafi Scholars who refuted them.

Then Ali Halabi and his companions at Markaz Imaam Albaanee did nothing but join the ranks of these people in opposing Shaikh Rabee and his brothers amongst the Salafi scholars.  He did this under the false pretence of pursuing the middle path and that they were waging war against Extremism in the affair of Criticism and declaring people innovators without a justified reason.  So Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmi stopped him and Mash-hoor Hasan in their tracks by refuting and warning against them.  Likewise, Shaikh Ubaid did the same.   As for Shaikh Rabee, he exercised a lot of patience towards Halabi and his companions and advised them repeatedly.  He advised them repeatedly despite the fact that they did utter unbefitting statements against him.  However, he still gave them a final advice in his house but it did not benefit them.

Then a hidden affair became manifested and that was the connection between Markaz Imaam Albaanee and the organisation Ihyaa Turaath—that organization well known for hizbiyyah, politics, its Qutbi orientation and affiliation with one of the heads of innovation of this era known as Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq.

Is Horse Meat Permissible to Eat or Not?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In light of the “scandal”[!] that has broken in the U.K. recently regarding certain products being labelled incorrectly as beef when in fact they are horse, we present here a brief summary of the affair regarding the actual ruling on horse meat.

It should be known that there is a difference of opinion that exists regarding eating horse meat amongst scholars. However the correct position is that it is permissible to eat as the majority of scholars explained; the statements of the scholars follow:

Shaikh bin Baz: “Horse meat is permissible, the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم permitted that in his statement narrated from Jaabir bin ‘Abdillah رضي الله عنه, “The prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم forbade on the Day of Khaibar from eating domesticated donkeys however he permitted horses” [al-Bukhary and Muslim].

Similarly Asmaa bint Abi Bakr رضي الله عنهما stated, “We slaughtered a horse during the time of the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم and we ate it whilst we were in Madinah” [al-Bukhary and Muslim].

Shaikh ibn ul-Uthaymeen: “Yes [it is permissible to eat] due to the narration in al-Bukhary of Asmaa bint Abi Bakr رضي الله عنهما “We slaughtered a horse….[as above]”

Shaikh ‘Abdul Muhsin al-‘Abbad: “[The hadith of Asmaa bint Abi Bakr رضي الله عنهما] indicates that horse meat is halal and permissible and from the good affairs”.

[via Sahab]

Shaikh al-Fawzan: “[The hadith of Asmaa bint Abi Bakr] indicates the permissibility of horse meat, and horse meat is permissible amongst many of the people of knowledge such as Imaam Ahmad and Imaam as-Shaafi’ee”. [Explanation of Buloogh al Maraam v6 p9].
