HONOUR ISRAEL! [Ed Husain – Pretender to Knowledge, Poisonous Bid’ee, Stooge and Flatterer of Militant Secularists and Concealer of The Kufr of The Zionists- Raises Ugly Head!]

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

Firstly: Meaning of  ‘Al-Ibraaniyyoon’, ‘Yahood’ and ‘Banee Israa’eel’:

The word ‘Ibraaniyyoon’ is translated as (Hebrews). It is said that Jews were named Ibraaniyyoon in reference to Prophet Abraaheem [peace be upon him] and that he was mentioned in the Book of Genesis as Abraham Al-Ibraanee- [i.e. Ibraaheem, the one who crossed over] because he made his way across the Euphrates River and other rivers. And it is said that they are called Ibraaniyyoon in reference عبر who was the fifth ancestor of Prophet Abraaheem [peace be upon him], and it was said that the word عبر indicates movement from place or place or relocation, as is the case regarding the people of the desert. However, most historians held the view that the reason for calling the Jews ‘Ibraaniyyoon (Hebrews) is in reference to Prophet Ibraaheem Al-Ibraanee [Ibraaheem – the one who who crossed over] because he عبر -crossed the Euphrates and other rivers.

As for the term ‘Israa’eeliyyoon’ [Israelis] or Banee Israa’eel [the children of Israa’eel], it is said that they were given this name in reference to their father, Israa’eel, who was Ya’qoob Ibn Ishaaq ibn Ibraaheem [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon them,]. And regarding the word اسرائيل, it is a Hebrew word- “Israa”, meaning slave or the best, and “Eel” meaning Allaah. Therefore, the meaning of the word Israa’eel would be “Abdullah [The slave of Allaah] or The Best Slave of Allaah”. The number of Prophet Ya’qoob’s [peace be upon him] children was twelve males, and from his sons and their offspring after them, the nation of the children of Israel was founded and attributed to him.

As for the reason for calling them ‘Yahood’, it is said that it was in reference to Yahoodah (Judah) the son of Yaqoob [peace be upon them] to whom the Children of Israel were attributed. It is also said that they are referred to as Yahood, which meabs repentance and returning to uprightness just as Allaah said that they said: [إِنَّا هُدۡنَآ إِلَيۡكَ‌ۚ – Certainly we have turned unto You]. [Surah Al-A’raaf Verse 156] And it was said that because يتهودون when reciting the Torah, meaning that they sway when reciting the Torah and say that the heavens and the earth moved when Allaah gave the Torah to Prophet Moosaa [peace be upon him]. [Ref 1]

Secondly: The final Messenger and seal of the Prophets Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] informed humankind that before his advent the Jews split into 71 sects and all of them will enter the fire except one sect [i.e. the sect that adhered to the path of Moosaa and then Eesaa before the advent of Muhammad]. Read below: https://salaficentre.com/2021/05/11/some-deviated-sects-amongst-banee-israaeel-and-one-that-resembled-the-khawaarij-in-fanaticism-extremism-and-violence/

Therefore, ascribing oneself to Prophet Ibraaheem, Ishaq, Yaqoob or the children of Yaqoob [peace be upon them] will not benefit the Jews in the afterlife if they refuse to submit to the path of the final Messenger Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], because he said, “By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, he who amongst the community of Jews or Christians hears about me, but does not affirm his belief in that with which I have been sent and dies in this state (of disbelief), he shall be but one of the denizens of Hell-Fire”. [Saheeh Muslim. Number 153] Read more here: https://salaficentre.com/2021/04/23/its-time-for-abrahamic-faiths-to-reclaim-religion-from-fascism-and-unite-in-peace-brief-rebuttal-of-mr-wael-aleji-and-mr-david-alton-at-alarabiya-news/

The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] also said, “Whoever is held back by his deeds, his (nobility) of lineage will not push him forward”. Imaam An-Nawawi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Its meaning is that the one whose deeds are deficient and he does not catch up with the performers of (good) deeds, then it is obligatory upon him not to crown himself with nobility of lineage and the virtues of his forefathers, whilst he is lagging behind in (performing good) deeds”. (2)

This is what the treacherous Bid’ee – Ed Husain – seeks to hide! And whenever there is trial and tribulation, he deliberately mixes truth with falsehood in order to distort facts and conceal the Kufr of ahlul kitaab and the militant secularists. Recently, whilst rebuking irresponsible Hamas and stating that Israel has a right to defend itself, not only did he refrain from mentioning the root of the problem which is the theft committed by some amongst the Jews [i.e. stealing Palestinian land] and their oppressive behaviour towards the Palestinians, but he also made the following statement by way of which he sought to beautify the affair of the Zionists and hide their Kufr. He stated:

Based on what has preceded from the evidences regarding the fact that whoever refuses to submit to the path of Muhammad will be a loser in the Afterlife, one clearly realizes the falsehood concealed in the above general statement. Allaah [The Exalted] said:

[وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ – And mix not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth while you know (the truth)]. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Verse 42]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Allaah forbade us from mixing truth with falsehood, and thus leading to concealment of the truth. Mixing truth with false is by mixing the two until one of them is confused for the other. This is forgery and deceit by way of which what is made apparent is the opposite of what it is in reality. Likewise, when truth is confounded with falsehood, the culprit manifests falsehood in the image of truth and speaks with a statement that carries two meanings- a correct meaning and false meaning, so the listener is under the illusion that the speaker intends the correct meaning, whilst he (i.e. the speaker) intends the corrupt meaning”. (3)

Imaam Al-Barbahaari [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “The likeness of the people of religious innovations is that of scorpions burying their heads and bodies in the sand and leaving their tails out; so when they are able they sting. Likewise, the people of innovation hide themselves within the people and when they are able, they convey what they desire”. [Tabaqaat al-Hanaabilah: 2/44]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “The basis of Banee Aadam’s misguidance is as a result of ‘General Terms’ and ‘Ambiguous Meanings’ [i.e. terms & meanings which can either be utilised for truth or falsehood when not explained in detail and distinguished], especially if they come in contact with a confused mind, then how about when [evil] desires and misguided enthusiasm is added to that?! Therefore, ask the One Who keeps the hearts steadfast [i.e. Allaah] to keep your heart firm upon His Religion and not allow you to fall into this darkness”. (4)

Finally, Ed Husain – the treacherous Bid’ee – is one extremely corrupt in Walaa Wal-Baraa [Loyalty and Disavowal] and he desperately seeks to spread this corruption in the name of civilization, liberty, freedom of expression and peaceful coexistence. Read below regarding Walaa Wal Baraa:

Alliance with the non-Muslims is of two types – misunderstanding this affair leads people astray:

As for living with non-Muslims in peace, refraining from violence, oppression and bad behaviour, then indeed none negates this except those on the other extreme – those who oppose Ed Husain’s misguidance with another type of misguidance, such as Hizb at-Tahreer. Read below:

Read: https://www.abukhadeejah.com/living-with-non-muslims-in-the-west-with-fine-conduct/

And we have a perfect example in our pious predecessors. Read below the statement of Ameerul Mumineen Umar Ibnul Khattaab [may Allaah be pleased with him].

This is how Umar treated them despite the fact that their path is false and abrogated. Every sane Muslim knows that ahlul kitaab have been given freewill to choose between truth and falsehood- whoever submits to the path of Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] will enter paradise and whoever refuses to submit will dwell in the fire forever, but there is no compulsion in religion. Allaah [The Exalted] said:

لَآ إِكۡرَاهَ فِى ٱلدِّينِ‌ۖ قَد تَّبَيَّنَ ٱلرُّشۡدُ مِنَ ٱلۡغَىِّ‌ۚ فَمَن يَكۡفُرۡ بِٱلطَّـٰغُوتِ وَيُؤۡمِنۢ بِٱللَّهِ فَقَدِ ٱسۡتَمۡسَكَ بِٱلۡعُرۡوَةِ ٱلۡوُثۡقَىٰ لَا ٱنفِصَامَ لَهَا‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ
ٱللَّهُ وَلِىُّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ يُخۡرِجُهُم مِّنَ ٱلظُّلُمَـٰتِ إِلَى ٱلنُّورِ‌ۖ وَٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓاْ أَوۡلِيَآؤُهُمُ ٱلطَّـٰغُوتُ يُخۡرِجُونَهُم مِّنَ ٱلنُّورِ إِلَى ٱلظُّلُمَـٰتِ‌ۗ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ أَصۡحَـٰبُ ٱلنَّارِ‌ۖ هُمۡ فِيہَا خَـٰلِدُونَ

There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in everything worshipped besides Allaah and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. Allah is the Wali (Protector or Guardian) of those who believe. He brings them out from darkness into light. But as for those who disbelieve, their Auliya (supporters and helpers) are Taghut [false deities and false leaders, etc.], they bring them out from light into darkness. Those are the dwellers of the Fire, and they will abide therein forever. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Verses 256-257]

The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said: “By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, he who amongst the community of Jews or Christians hears about me, but does not affirm his belief in that with which I have been sent and dies in this state (of disbelief), he shall be but one of the denizens of Hell-Fire”. [Saheeh Muslim. Number 153]

Therefore, one must make a clear distinction between truth and falsehood in this affair. We do not honour anyone just because his ancestors were people of piety, rather we honour those who obey Allaah and the final Messenger, and we treat everyone with justice and kindness- whether a Jew or Christian. We do not oppress anyone as has preceded in the statement of Ameerul Mumineen Umar Ibnul Khattaab [may Allaah be pleased with him]. Likewise, his son Abdullah [may Allaah be pleased with him] behaved kindly towards non-Muslims. Once a sheep was slaughtered for him, so he said to his slave, “Have you given to our Jewish neighbour? Have you given to our Jewish neighbour? I heard the Messenger of Allaah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] saying, ‘Jibreel did not cease advising me (about the rights of) a neighbour until I thought that he (a neighbour) would inherit from me'”. [Adabul Mufrad Number 105. Graded authentic by Imaam Al-Albaanee]


Neither do we join demonstrations nor take the law into our own hands, nor do we call to violence against anyone -be it Jews, Christians or others; but we refute all the callers to misguidance including misguided Ed Husain and Hizb At-Tahreer.

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee [may Allaah preserve him] said, “It is obligated on the people of truth to exercise patience and increase in adhering to this religion of truth. Whenever the desires become abundant, it becomes necessary to increase in acquainting (oneself) with the truth and adhering to it, as the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘The one who lives long amongst you will see a lot of differences, so upon you is that you follow my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly guided khulafaa. Bite onto it with your molar teeth (i.e. hold onto it firmly) and beware of newly invented matters (in the religion), for every newly invented matter (in the religion) is a bidah and every bidah is misguidance”.
