Lies Made Against the Prophets (alayhimus salaatu was salaam) – Shaykh Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaikh Salih al Fawzaan حفظه الله comments regarding His Statement (The Most High):

مَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُؤۡتِيَهُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ وَٱلۡحُكۡمَ وَٱلنُّبُوَّةَ ثُمَّ يَقُولَ لِلنَّاسِ كُونُواْ عِبَادٗا لِّي مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَلَٰكِن كُونُواْ رَبَّٰنِيِّـۧنَ بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تُعَلِّمُونَ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ وَبِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَدۡرُسُونَ

It is not (possible) for any human being to whom Allah has given the Book and Al-Hukma (the knowledge and understanding of the laws of religion, etc.) and Prophethood to say to the people: “Be my worshippers rather than Allah’s.” On the contrary (he would say): “Be you Rabbaaniyun (learned men of religion who practise what they know and also preach others), because you are teaching the Book, and you are studying it.” (Surah Aali-Imraan:79)

What is understood from this verse is that it is not suitable with Allah that he would choose for his Messenger-ship and Prophet-hood someone who calls the people to shirk; just as the Jews and Christians would say that the Messengers ordered the worship of the Prophets, Rabbis (1) and Monks (2). Allah (The Most High) said:

ٱتَّخَذُوٓاْ أَحۡبَارَهُمۡ وَرُهۡبَٰنَهُمۡ أَرۡبَابٗا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡمَسِيحَ ٱبۡنَ مَرۡيَمَ وَمَآ أُمِرُوٓاْ إِلَّا لِيَعۡبُدُوٓاْ إِلَٰهٗا وَٰحِدٗاۖ لَّآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَۚ سُبۡحَٰنَهُۥ عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُونَ

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).” (Surah At-Tawbah:31)

So they lied upon the Prophets of Allah, ascribing to them that they would order them to take partners in worship and to take them as intercessors with Allah and to take them as intermediaries with Allah, this is how they lie!

1) Rabbis are the scholars amongst the Jews

2) Monks are the worshippers amongst the Christians

 

The Call of the Prophets and their Followers is One – Shaykh Fawzaan

Shaikh Salih al Fawzaan حفظه الله comments regarding His Statement (The Most High):

مَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُؤۡتِيَهُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ وَٱلۡحُكۡمَ وَٱلنُّبُوَّةَ ثُمَّ يَقُولَ لِلنَّاسِ كُونُواْ عِبَادٗا لِّي مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَلَٰكِن كُونُواْ رَبَّٰنِيِّـۧنَ بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تُعَلِّمُونَ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ وَبِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَدۡرُسُونَ

It is not (possible) for any human being to whom Allah has given the Book and Al-Hukma (the knowledge and understanding of the laws of religion, etc.) and Prophethood to say to the people: “Be my worshippers rather than Allah’s.” On the contrary (he would say): “Be you Rabbaaniyun (learned men of religion who practise what they know and also preach others), because you are teaching the Book, and you are studying it.” (Surah Aali-Imraan:79)

What is understood from this verse is that the path of the prophets and their followers is one, undeviating, from the first of them (prophets) to the last of them. All of prophets brought with them the command of tawheed and the forbiddance of shirk, Allah (The Most High) said:

وَلَقَدۡ بَعَثۡنَا فِي كُلِّ أُمَّةٖ رَّسُولًا أَنِ ٱعۡبُدُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱجۡتَنِبُواْ ٱلطَّٰغُوتَۖ

And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): “Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Taghut (all false deities, etc.i. e. do not worship Taghut besides Allah).”  Surah An-Nahl, Ayah 36

And similarly the followers of the messengers, they also carry out this duty which the messengers brought with them, and it (the duty) is the calling to the worship of Allah alone and not ascribing partners to him in worship and leaving the worship of other than him, just like what He صلى الله عليه وسلم  said:

وإن العلماء ورثة الأنبياء وإن الأنبياء لم يورثوا دينارًا ولا درهما وإنما ورثوا العلم‏.‏ فمن أخذه أخذ بحظ وافر……

The scholars are the heirs of the Prophets who bequeath neither dinar nor dirham but only that of knowledge; and he who acquires it, has in fact acquired an abundant portion. (1)

The Messengers and their Followers Do Not Call to Shirk – Shaykh Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaikh Salih al Fawzaan حفظه الله comments regarding His Statement (The Most High):

مَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُؤۡتِيَهُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ وَٱلۡحُكۡمَ وَٱلنُّبُوَّةَ ثُمَّ يَقُولَ لِلنَّاسِ كُونُواْ عِبَادٗا لِّي مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَلَٰكِن كُونُواْ رَبَّٰنِيِّـۧنَ بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تُعَلِّمُونَ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ وَبِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَدۡرُسُونَ

It is not (possible) for any human being to whom Allah has given the Book and Al-Hukma (the knowledge and understanding of the laws of religion, etc.) and Prophethood to say to the people: “Be my worshippers rather than Allah’s.” On the contrary (he would say): “Be you Rabbaaniyun (learned men of religion who practise what they know and also preach others), because you are teaching the Book, and you are studying it.” (Surah Aali-Imraan:79)

What we understand from this verse is that the messengers and their followers do not call to shirk, rather the only ones that call to shirk are the enemies of the messengers (عليهم الصلاة و السلام) and the enemies of the Rabbaniyun (learned men of religion who practise what they know and also preach others), so these enemies are those that call people to shirk, so if you see someone who calls to shirk and to the worship of tombs and graves in this time and other than this time, and he makes that look desirable to the people then you should know (for sure) that this person is an opposer of the messengers and an opposer of the Rabbaaniyun, even if he is a scholar. If he neither calls to tawheed nor forbids shirk, then he is only a person who knows and not a Rabbaaniy, rather he has knowledge but does not act in accordance to his knowledge. He is someone who earns Allaah’s Anger, because he knows the truth but does not act in accordance to it.

So this ruling is from the greatest of what this noble verse shows, that the one who is truly from the followers of the messengers is he who calls to Islamic Monotheism, the worship of Allah alone and not ascribing partners to him in worship, he forbids the people from the worship of anything other than Allaah, such as idols, statues, trees, stones, graves and tombs; but if his call is in opposition to this way then he is calling to the worship of other than Allah, because this call of his is not upon the way of the messengers, nor upon the way of the Rabbaniyun, rather he is a scholar of misguidance just as he  صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

إنما أخاف على أمتي الأئمة المضلين

Indeed what I fear the most for my ummah are the misguided scholars. (3)

The Virtue of Hand Shaking Whilst Giving Salaam And a Warning Against The Self-amazement That Has Afflicted Those Who Do Not Reply to Salaam

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

Abdah Bin Abee Lubaabah reported from Mujaahid, who reported from Ibn Abbaas [radiyallaahu-anhumaa] in [Marfoo form] that “When a Muslim meets his Muslim brother another, takes hold of his hand and shakes hands with him, their sins (Ref 1) fall away from their fingers like leaves falling from a tree during winter”. Abdah said, “I said to Mujaahid, ‘Indeed, this is easy’”, so Mujaahid said, “Do not say this, for indeed Allaah [The Exalted] said in His Book [i.e. The Qur’aan] [لَوۡ أَنفَقۡتَ مَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ جَمِيعً۬ا مَّآ أَلَّفۡتَ بَيۡنَ قُلُوبِهِمۡ وَلَـٰڪِنَّ ٱللَّهَ أَلَّفَ بَيۡنَہُمۡ‌ۚ – If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but Allah has united them(Surah al-Anfaal. Aayah 63)]; so I realised the excellence of his knowledge above that of others.

Beneficial Reminders From This Hadeeth By Shaikh Zayd Bin Haadi [rahimahullaah]

This is from the excellence and virtues of Islaam, because it brought about [sound] unity even though afore time the people were in a state of disharmony and conflict- neither upon brotherhood nor did they love one another; so Islaam came with the call that made the hearts [incline towards each other with love, harmony, wishing good for one another etc, just as Allaah stated regarding the statement of the believers]: [وَلَا تَجۡعَلۡ فِى قُلُوبِنَا غِلاًّ۬ لِّلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ – And put not in our hearts any hatred against those who have believed]. [Surah Al-Hashr. Aayah 10]

Islaam [conveyed by way of encouragement and making mention of the virtues] of greeting with salaam, returning salaam, hand shaking and its end [good] outcomes, just as it has been stated in the hadeeth that when two Muslims meet each other, shake each other’s hand [when greeting one another with salaam and being truthful about that in their hearts], their sins (Ref 2) fall away just as leaves fall from its tree. This is from those virtuous deeds befitting for the Muslims to show eagerness for its [attainment], so that a person earns great reward, [earns] the brotherhood of his Muslim brothers, [earns] forgiveness, expiation of his sins, [earns] the companionship of the virtuous people, becomes beloved to the people in the society and has many Muslim brothers who treat him with kindness – during his lifetime and after his death. Therefore, we should be eager to [greet] and shake hands, be truthful, and show affection and love to our Muslim brothers, so that harmony is perfected between the Muslims. Likewise, the female Muslims should do this amongst themselves- [show] eagerness for sisterhood by way of [greeting with salaam] and hand shaking, because this virtuous deed is not restricted to men, rather it is general for men and women as far as I am aware. And Allaah knows best. [An Excerpt ‘At-taleeqaatul Maleehah Alaa Silsilah Al-Ahaadeeth As-Saheehah. Vol 1. Page 60. Slightly paraphrased]

Shaikh Abdus Salaam Burjess [rahimahullaah] said:

Imaam Ibn Abdul-Barr [rahimahullaah] said: The obligation of returning the Islamic greeting is [found in the] statement of [Allaah]:

وَإِذَا حُيِّيتُم بِتَحِيَّةٍ فَحَيُّوا بِأَحْسَنَ مِنْهَا أَوْ رُدُّوهَا

”When you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with what is better than it, or (at least) return it equally.” [Nisaa: ayah: 86]

Imaam Ibn Katheer [rahimahullaah] said: To give the Islamic greeting is voluntary and it is an obligation to return it. This is what all the scholars say- that it is obligated on the one who is given the salaam to reply and he has sinned if he does not reply, because he has opposed Allaah’s command. The abandonment of returning the Islamic greeting is an evil and ugly deed and many people have been afflicted with it in this era. And they are prevented from it due to pride and self-amazement. So, we gently say to all of them, ”Who are you?! And from what are you created?!” Allaah said:

مِنۡ أَىِّ شَىۡءٍ خَلَقَهُ ۥ

مِن نُّطۡفَةٍ خَلَقَهُ ۥ فَقَدَّرَهُ ۥ

‘’From what thing did He create him? From Nutfah (male and female semen drops) He created him, and then set him in due proportion.’’ [Abasa: Ayah: 17-18]

Are you greater in status than the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]? Indeed he [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] returned the Islamic greeting of the young, the old, the free person and the slave, and he also greeted them. Therefore, let there be a good example in the Messenger of Allaah for you to follow. We ask Allaah for guidance and success for all. Also when a person is leaving a gathering and gives the salaam, it is obligatory to reply to him. [An Excerpt from ‘Al-Ilaam Bi-Ba’di Ahkaam As-Salaam’- pages: 11-12.slightly paraphrased]


Refs 1 & 2: Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [rahimahullaah] stated a principle related the unrestricted Ahaadeeth in which a mention is made regarding the expiation of sins, that they are restricted by the texts in regarding the abandonment of major sins – either restricted by the statement of Allaah: [إِنْ تَجْتَنِبُوا كَبَائِرَ مَا تُنْهَوْنَ عَنْهُ نُكَفِّرْ عَنْكُمْ سَيِّئَاتِكُمْ – If you avoid the great sins which you are forbidden to do, We shall remit from you your (small) sins. (Surah An-Nisaa. Aayah 31)]; or by the statement of the Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam], “The five prayers, Friday to Friday, and Ramadan to Ramadan will expiate the sins committed between them, as long as major sins are avoided”.

ال النبيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم: «العمرةُ إلى العمرة كفَّارةٌ لما بينهما، والحجُّ المبرور ليس له جزاء إلا الجنة»، هذا يُبين فضل الحج والعمرة، وأن العمرة كفَّارة لما بينهما، يعني: عند اجتناب الكبائر.

قاعدة: الأحاديث المطلقة في تكفير الذنوب مُقيَّدة بترك الكبائر، إما بقوله سبحانه: {إِنْ تَجْتَنِبُوا كَبَائِرَ مَا تُنْهَوْنَ عَنْهُ نُكَفِّرْ عَنْكُمْ سَيِّئَاتِكُمْ} [النساء:31]، وفي قوله صلى الله عليه وسلم: «الصَّلوات الخمس، والجمعة إلى الجمعة، ورمضان إلى رمضان كفَّارات لما بينهنَّ إذا اجتنب الكبائر»، وفي اللفظ الآخر: «ما لم تُغْشَ الكبائر»، فالعمرة إلى العمرة كفَّارة لما بينهما عند اجتناب الكبائر.

«والحج المبرور ليس له جزاء إلا الجنة» يعني: عند اجتناب الكبائر، كما قال صلى الله عليه وسلم: «مَن حجَّ فلم يرفث ولم يفسق رجع كيوم ولدته أمه»، فالحج المبرور هو الذي ليس فيه رفثٌ ولا فسوقٌ، هذا الحج المبرور، ليس فيه ما يُبطله، وليس فيه ما ينقصه من المعاصي، هذا هو الحج المبرور الذي يُوجب الجنة
