Concocted Nonsense of a Thoughtless Dutch Moron – Geert Wilders

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

Allah [The Exalted] says:

الٓر‌ۚ ڪِتَـٰبٌ أَنزَلۡنَـٰهُ إِلَيۡكَ لِتُخۡرِجَ ٱلنَّاسَ مِنَ ٱلظُّلُمَـٰتِ إِلَى ٱلنُّورِ بِإِذۡنِ رَبِّهِمۡ إِلَىٰ صِرَٲطِ ٱلۡعَزِيزِ ٱلۡحَمِيدِ
ٱللَّهِ ٱلَّذِى لَهُ ۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۗ وَوَيۡلٌ۬ لِّلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ مِنۡ عَذَابٍ۬ شَدِيدٍ
ٱلَّذِينَ يَسۡتَحِبُّونَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنۡيَا عَلَى ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ وَيَصُدُّونَ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ وَيَبۡغُونَہَا عِوَجًا‌ۚ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ فِى ضَلَـٰلِۭ بَعِيدٍ۬

Alif-Laam-Raa. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur’an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (This is) a Book which We have revealed unto you (O Muhammad) in order that you might lead mankind out of darkness by their Lord’s Leave to the Path of the All-Mighty, the Owner of all Praise. Allah to Whom belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth! And woe unto the disbelievers from a severe torment. Those who prefer the life of this world instead of the Hereafter, and hinder (men) from the Path of Allah (i.e. Islam) and seek crookedness therein – They are far astray. [Surah Ibraaheem. Aayaat 1-3]

At present, the thoughtless Danish moron – Geert Wilders – calls a Muslim leader an Islamofascist! 

Indeed, every charlatan who attempts to misrepresent Islam is driven to carry out the diabolical suggestions of “French King Louis IX, who was captured in 1250 while on a crusade against the Muslims of Egypt. After paying a significant ransom, he was eventually freed from prison. But while he was imprisoned, he used the time to plan ways to undermine Islam and Muslims, so the devil inspired him with the following schemes: first, the battle between Western Christians and Muslims should be replaced with a conflict over ideas and culture. Second, prepare the West to pervert Islam’s reputation around the world and damage Muslims’ religious beliefs”. (1)

Second, it is undeniable that one tactic used by the openly hostile to Islam, particularly those lying under the call to moderation, tolerance, and liberty, is the attribution of ideas and conceptions to Islam without guidance from Allah and His Messenger. Additionally, some Muslims also commit this mistake as Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah preserve him] stated: “Those who carry seductive slogans in the name of Islam, such as Islamic socialism, Islamic democracy, the call for religious harmony, and many other misguided claims made in the name of Islam, are among the liars of this era, along with political figures like the secularists and Baathists [Arab Nationalists]. This occurs among organizations that claim that their goals are to elevate Islam and restore the Islamic Ummah to its former splendor, but they only serve to lead more people astray and into darkness, and Allah’s Refuge is sought! The Muslims and scholars have a duty to be exceedingly watchful of all of these types of persons, warn the Muslims about their plots and intentions, and reveal their secrets because this puts the community and the youth at greater risk”. (2)

Therefore, the true meaning of Islam must be made public and then distinguished from everything that is not in accordance with it in order to expose the lies of these declared opponents, such as the thoughtless Danish moron Geert Wilders. What is the meaning of Islam? Islam means Al-Istislaam (to submit) to Allaah with Tawheed (i.e. pure Islamic monotheism), obey Him, and keep away from Shirk and the people of Shirk. Allaah [The Exalted] stated about Prophet Ibraaheem [peace be upon him]:

وَإِذۡ قَالَ إِبۡرَٲهِيمُ لِأَبِيهِ وَقَوۡمِهِۦۤ إِنَّنِى بَرَآءٌ۬ مِّمَّا تَعۡبُدُونَ
إِلَّا ٱلَّذِى فَطَرَنِى فَإِنَّهُ ۥ سَيَہۡدِينِ
وَجَعَلَهَا كَلِمَةَۢ بَاقِيَةً۬ فِى عَقِبِهِۦ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَرۡجِعُونَ

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said to his father and his people: “Verily, I am innocent of what you worship, except Him (i.e. I worship none but Allah Alone) Who did create me, and verily, He will guide me.” And he made it [i.e. La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah Alone)] a Word lasting among his offspring (True Monotheism), that they may turn back (i.e. to repent to Allah or receive admonition). [Surah Az-Zukhruf. Aayaat 26-28]

Allaah [The Exalted] said:

قُلۡ يَـٰٓأَهۡلَ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ تَعَالَوۡاْ إِلَىٰ ڪَلِمَةٍ۬ سَوَآءِۭ بَيۡنَنَا وَبَيۡنَكُمۡ أَلَّا نَعۡبُدَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهَ وَلَا نُشۡرِكَ بِهِۦ شَيۡـًٔ۬ا وَلَا يَتَّخِذَ بَعۡضُنَا بَعۡضًا أَرۡبَابً۬ا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّوۡاْ فَقُولُواْ ٱشۡهَدُواْ بِأَنَّا مُسۡلِمُونَ

Say (O Muhammad): “O people of the Scripture: Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allah. Then, if they turn away, say: “Bear witness that we are Muslims.” [Surah Aal Imraan. Aayah 64] (3)

This is Islaam – submission to the Creator, worshipping Him alone, obeying Him alone without reservation, and avoiding Shirk and its adherents.

What is Fascism? They say that it is a way of organizing a society in which a government ruled by a dictator controls the lives of the people and in which people are not allowed to disagree with the government; a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. A political system based on a very powerful leader, state control, and being extremely proud of country and race, and in which political opposition is not allowed.

Let’s make a few quick observations regarding the thorough and distinct definition provided above. Islam is neither a political theory nor a political movement, and Islamic authority does not rely on autocracy; rather, both the ruler and the subject are expected to adhere to everything revealed in the Qur’aan and the authentic Sunnah.

Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] said:

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَأۡمُرُكُمۡ أَن تُؤَدُّواْ ٱلۡأَمَـٰنَـٰتِ إِلَىٰٓ أَهۡلِهَا وَإِذَا حَكَمۡتُم بَيۡنَ ٱلنَّاسِ أَن تَحۡكُمُواْ بِٱلۡعَدۡلِ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ نِعِمَّا يَعِظُكُم بِهِۦۤ‌ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ سَمِيعَۢا بَصِيرً۬ا
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ أَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِى ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنكُمۡ‌ۖ فَإِن تَنَـٰزَعۡتُمۡ فِى شَىۡءٍ۬ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَٱلرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمۡ تُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡيَوۡمِ ٱلۡأَخِرِ‌ۚ ذَٲلِكَ خَيۡرٌ۬ وَأَحۡسَنُ تَأۡوِيلاً

Verily! Allah commands that you should render back the trusts to those, to whom they are due; and that when you judge between men, you judge with justice. Verily, how excellent is the teaching which He (Allah) gives you! Truly, Allah is Ever All-Hearer, All-Seer. O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for the final determination. [Surah An-Nisaa. Aayaat 58-59]

Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: The first verse, according to the scholars, was revealed in relation to the rulers; it commands them to return trusts to those to whom they are due and to decide between the people justly. The second verse was revealed in reference to those who are under the ruler’s authority, including the armies and those who were not. It states that they are required to obey the rulers who uphold justice in their decisions, rulings, military campaigns, and other matters, with the exception of times when they give orders to disobey Allah, as there cannot be obedience to the creation while disobeying Allah. And if they disagree on anything, they should refer back to Allah’s Book and His Messenger’s Sunnah. If the rulers fail to achieve this, then they will only be obeyed in accordance with obeying Allah and His Messenger, and their rights will be fulfilled in accordance with what Allah and His Messenger instructed, with the result that they will be supported in righteousness and piety but not in sin and transgression. (4)

In addition, a strong leader is something that is desired because, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Verily, the leader is a shield behind whom they fight and he protects them. If he commands (people to) fear Allaah [The Exalted] and justice, then he will have a reward. If he commands something else, then it will be against him”. [Ṣaḥeeh Muslim 1841]

Imaam An-Nawawi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: “Meaning, he is like a shelter because he prevents the enemy from harming the Muslims, prevents the people from (harming) one another (i.e., establishes justice), protects the Muslim nation, and the people fear his authority because he will establish justice against the oppressor. “Behind whom they fight,” means that they stand by him in their struggle against the unbelievers (i.e. those at war with his nation), the rebels, the Khaarijites, and all other instigators of injustice and corruption. (5)

Regarding the coercive repression of opposition, the believer has been given a pure approach to dealing with unjust governments. Read the article by Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allaah preserve him]:

With regards to the mention of philosophy or a political ideology found in the definition of Fascism, then indeed, Islam is innocent of that which they necessitate. Islam is not a set of ideas and it is free from the requirements that the definition of fascism makes reference to in terms of philosophy or a political ideology; rather it is a divine revelation revealed by the Creator (Allah) in the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah of the noble Messenger, who never speaks out of his own desires. Allah said:

وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ ٱلْهَوَىٰٓ
إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْىٌ يُوحَىٰ

Nor does he speak out of the desire (of his own soul) (and forge revelation thereby); it is nothing but revelation revealed to him (containing guidance, rectitude and piety which he follows). [Shaikh Abu Iyad: ]

“Concepts or ideas can be contested, rejected, disapproved, etc., and submitted for discussion. It may be right or wrong. Due to the fact that an idea or concept is something that is particularly linked to the creation (i.e., humankind and Jinn), as well as the fact that an idea or thought might be right or wrong, it is not acceptable to associate Islam with the words “idea” or “thought.” The Sharee’ah [the infallible divine law, belief, and acts of worship] as transmitted by the last Messenger from the Qur’an, and the authentic Sunnah is infallible”. (6)

How can fascism be linked to Islam when everything included in the concept of fascism is in direct opposition to what Islam commands? However, the thoughtless moron Geert Wilders uses the term without any justification; rather, he is one who is filled with hatred, therefore anything he says is only a reflection of what is concealed in his heart. Allah says:

قَدْ بَدَتِ ٱلْبَغْضَآءُ مِنْ أَفْوَٰهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِى صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ

Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. (Surah Al-Imran. Ayah 118]

Allah said:

يُرِيدُونَ أَن يُطْفِـُٔوا۟ نُورَ ٱللَّهِ بِأَفْوَٰهِهِمْ وَيَأْبَى ٱللَّهُ إِلَّآ أَن يُتِمَّ نُورَهُۥ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ ٱلْكَٰفِرُونَ

They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it. (Surah At-Tawbah. Ayah 32)

Finally, we ask Allah:
رَبَّنَا لَا تَجۡعَلۡنَا فِتۡنَةً۬ لِّلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ
وَنَجِّنَا بِرَحۡمَتِكَ مِنَ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ

Our Lord, make us not [objects of] trial for the wrongdoing people, and save us by Your Mercy from the disbelieving folk.

Rise in popularity of buggery led to health problems for women!

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

The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said: “Indeed Allaah is not shy of (stating) the truth. Do not approach women in their back passages”.

Al-Allaamah Zayd Bin Haadi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: Shyness in the presence of Allah is that you avoid doing what is prohibited and what you have been told to avoid, as well as not failing to perform the mandatory and obligatory deeds. Similarly, one should be shy when it comes to Allah’s rights. He should also be shy of people within the confines of the Shariah, and this must be proven through deeds. And in respect to this shyness, women are not to be approached through the back passage [i.e. sexual intercourse in the anus is forbidden] because the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “Cursed is the one who approaches a woman in her back passage”. Due to the fact that it is neither the proper location for the placement of the semen nor where offspring should be sought, the Prophet condemned this and declared it a major sin. (1)

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: “The back passage is a place of filth, serving as an excrement escape. If Allah prevents (a husband) from engaging in sexual activity with a wife who is menstruating because of the impurity in her private area, then how about engaging in sexual activity in the location [i.e. the anus] from whence severe impurity exits”. (2)

Imaam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: The vagina is where offspring is sought. Regarding the anus, not one Prophet among the Prophets has said that it is permissible! Imaam Abu Daawud reported in his Sunan from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger said: “Cursed is the one who has sexual intercourse with his wife in the anus”. [Abu Dawud. Hadeeth Number 2162]

When it is the fact that Allah forbids sexual activity through the vagina because of apparent harm (i.e. menstruation or post-partum bleeding), then what about the anus, which is a location for the permanent disposal of harmful things (feces)? To engage in sexual relations with a wife through the anus is a violation of her right to be satisfied by her husband. Anal sex neither satisfies her sexual needs nor accomplishes its goal. The vagina is the natural location equipped for sexual encounters; neither was the anus created nor equipped for this purpose.

Due to the fact that it is exceedingly bizarre and distant from the innate natural human inclination, sexual activity through the anus is damaging for both men and women. Because it leads to Allah’s wrath and curse, it is among the major causes of punishment and blessings being withheld. Additionally, it takes away the person’s shyness because shyness provides life to the heart (i.e. helps it to hate and turn away from repulsive behaviors). However, if the heart is stripped of its shyness, it begins to beautify disgusting behavior and declare good behavior to be disgusting, which strengthens and normalizes corruption. (3)

Rise in popularity of anal sex (i.e. buggery) has led to health problems for women– By Denis Campbell Health policy editor Thu 11 Aug 2022 23.30 (The Guardian)

Quote: “Women in the UK are suffering injuries and other health problems as a result of the growing popularity of anal sex among straight couples, two NHS surgeons have warned. The consequences include incontinence and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as pain and bleeding because they have experienced bodily trauma while engaging in the practice, the doctors write in an article in the British Medical Journal”. [End of quote]

We ask Allah:
اللهم كما حَسَّنْت خَلْقِي فَحَسِّنْ خُلُقِي

O Allah! Just as You made my external form beautiful, make my character beautiful as well.

Bedroom Secrets – [Brief Reply to Muhammad Hijaab’s False and Rotten Interpretation and Analogy]

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

Allah [The Exalted] said:

هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ مِنْهُ آيَاتٌ مُّحْكَمَاتٌ هُنَّ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ وَأُخَرُ مُتَشَابِهَاتٌ ۖ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ زَيْغٌ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاءَ الْفِتْنَةِ وَابْتِغَاءَ تَأْوِيلِهِ ۗ وَمَا يَعْلَمُ تَأْوِيلَهُ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ۗ وَالرَّاسِخُونَ فِي الْعِلْمِ يَقُولُونَ آمَنَّا بِهِ كُلٌّ مِّنْ عِندِ رَبِّنَا ۗ وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ

It is He Who has sent down to you the Book [this Qur’an]. In it are Verses that are Muhkamaat [entirely clear, and those are the Verses of commandments, obligatory duties, and laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.] and they the foundations of the Book; and others are Mutashaabihaat [i.e. not entirely clear in what they indicate, so they are to be referred back to the Muhkamaat to be explained]. So, as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings except Allaah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: ‘’We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord.” And none receive admonition except men of understanding.’’ [Surah Aal Imraan. Aayah 7] Aa’isha [may Allaah be pleased with her] said: The Messenger said, “If you see those who follow thereof that is not entirely clear, then they are those whom Allah has named (as having deviation from the truth) so beware of them”. [Bukhaari Number 4547]

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allah preserve him] stated: Allaah [Glorified and Exalted be He] warned against Ahlul Bidah and clarified for us that they are people of desires and that they follow Mutashaabihaat [i.e. texts that are not entirely clear in what they indicate, so they are referred back to other texts to be explained] and they abandon the Muhkamaat [i.e. texts that are very clear]. Allaah clarified that they have desires and deviations with them and that they intend to misguide themselves and other people! (1)

Muhammad Hijaab attempted to defend his actions by using a hadith, a story that is essentially a refutation against him when he received criticism for his question to married youngsters about how frequently they engage in sexual activity with their spouses. The hadith he quoted can be found in Sahih Al-Bukhari “Book of Prescribe Punishments” under the Chapter: Can a ruler say to the one who confesses his crime of adultery, “Can’t be that you have only touched the lady or winked at her?” Ibn Abbaas [may Allah be pleased with him and his father] reported that when Ma’iz Bin Malik [may Allaah be pleased with him] came to the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] (in order to confess), the Prophet said to him, “Probably you have only kissed (the lady), or winked, or looked at her?” He said, “No, O Allah’s Messenger! The Prophet said, using no euphemism, “Did you have sexual intercourse with her?” The narrator added: At that, (i.e. after his confession) the Prophet ordered that he be stoned. [Hadith number 6824]

Muhammad used this hadith to support his claim that he might inquire of married youngsters how frequently they engage in sexual activity each week. First of all, it is obvious to any sensible person that this hadith refers to a person going to the ruler to confess to Zina. That will be evident to anyone who revisits the explanations of the scholars. [Refer to Fat’hul Baari Sharh Saheeh Al-Bukhaari Vol 12, page165-166. Publisher Daarus Salaam. 1st Edition 1421AH (the Year 2000)]

Therefore, no sane individual would try to compare asking married young people how often they have sex with their spouses to hearing someone confess to a ruler that they committed Zina! What a person does in the bedroom with his or her spouse is a bedroom secret, whereas what another person discloses to the ruler regarding Zina is something else entirely. Asma Bint Yazid [may Allaah be pleased with her] reported that she was with Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], while men and women were sitting with him. The Prophet said, “Perhaps a man will say what he did in his house? Perhaps a woman will tell what she did with her husband?” The people sat in embarrassed silence, so I said, “By Allah, the women say so and the men do so.” The Prophet said, “Do not do so. Verily, that is like a male devil and female devil fornicating in the street while people watch.” [Saheeh at-Targheeb 2022]

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri [may Allaah be pleased with him] reported that Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], said, “Verily, the evilest of people in the presence of Allah on the Day of Resurrection is a man who was intimate with his wife and then spreads her secrets.” [Ṣaḥeeh Muslim 1437]

Muhammad’s comparison of the two circumstances is therefore falsehood; rather, it is a deliberate false interpretation. “Al-Hukmu Alaa Shay’in Far’un An Tasawwurihee – Making a judgment must be (firmly related to and based) on knowledge of the matter”. Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “You should only pass judgment on something after fully understanding it, ensuring that your judgment is in line with the reality of the situation. And if this is not done, a significant error occurs”.[An Excerpt from Sharh Al-Usool Min Ilm Al-Usool. page 604]

Muhammad concludes by stating that the respondents to his survey are anonymous! Indeed, can someone violate a prohibition (by disclosing bedroom secrets) and then claim that what they are doing is permissible as long as it is done in private? This is another deception that is presented as fact. In fact, whether the offender violates a prohibition in private or secret, Allah knows, sees, and hears everything. Has Muhammad and the respondents not come across the supplication:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَشْيَتَكَ فِي الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ كَلِمَةَ الْحَقِّ فِي الرِّضَا وَالْغَضَبِ،

I ask You (O Allah) to grant me (the blessing of having) fear of You in private and public; And I ask you (to make me utter) a statement of truth in times of contentment and anger]. Read more on this link:

Muhammad’s corrupt suggestion is hardly unexpected, though, as what else would one expect from someone who openly advocates bidah, a bigger crime? Promoting bidah is worse than encouraging young people to violate a prohibition – in private- by disclosing their bedroom secrets for a survey. He abandons a clear text and clings to doubts and desires! Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allah have mercy upon him] stated: “Whoever follows the desires of the people after (clarification) of the knowledge that Allah has revealed to His Messenger and the guidance He has made clear for His slaves, then he (i.e. such a person) has a resemblance (to those regarded as followers of desires). Because of this, the pious predecessors dubbed those who oppose the Qur’an and the true Prophetic path Ahlul Ahwaa [the people of desires] because they accept what they love and reject what they hate based on their desires without guidance from Allah. [An Excerpt from Majmoo Al-Fataawaa 4/189-190]

Therefore, we remind the youth to be cautious of these callers to desires. The Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]:

فإنه من يعش منكم فسيرى اختلافا، فعليكم بسنتي

Indeed the one who lives long amongst you will see differences; so upon you is to (adhere) to my Sunnah”. Imaam Abu Haatim [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: This is unequivocal proof that the Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] enjoined his Ummah to identify unreliable narrators among them and tell them apart from reliable narrators. This is due to the fact that the Sunnah cannot be followed together with the lies and deceit that are mixed in with it without first identifying the unreliable narrators and telling them apart from the reliable ones.[Muqaddimah Kitaab Al-Majrooheem Minal Muhadditheen By Imaam Ibn Hibbaan. Page 66]

Allaah [The Most High] said:
وَكَذَٲلِكَ جَعَلۡنَا لِكُلِّ نَبِىٍّ عَدُوًّ۬ا شَيَـٰطِينَ ٱلۡإِنسِ وَٱلۡجِنِّ يُوحِى بَعۡضُهُمۡ إِلَىٰ بَعۡضٍ۬ زُخۡرُفَ ٱلۡقَوۡلِ غُرُورً۬ا‌ۚ وَلَوۡ شَآءَ رَبُّكَ مَا فَعَلُوهُ‌ۖ فَذَرۡهُمۡ وَمَا يَفۡتَرُونَ

And so We have appointed for every Prophet enemies – Shayaateen (devils) among mankind and jinns, inspiring one another with adorned speech as a delusion (or by way of deception). If your Lord had so willed, they would not have done it, so leave them alone with their fabrications.” [Soorah Al-An’aam: Ayah 112]

Imaam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: They support one another in defying the Prophets’ orders with what some of them inspire others by way of ornamented speech, which leads to the deception of the credulous and feeble-minded. Allah explained the motivation behind a perpetrator’s (adorned speech) as well as the reasons why the people accept it, and He then indicated [in ayah 113 Al-An’aam] the consequences it has on those ignorant souls. When they gravitate towards such embellished discourse and find pleasure in it, they obey its demands—both verbally and physically. Reflect on these verses and the profound meanings they offer as a result because they expose the foundations of false principles and warn people away from them. Furthermore, if you reflect on the claims made by those who hold falsehoods, you will discover that they are in fact dressed in expressions and presented in a favourable light with sophisticated terms, which are quickly accepted by those lacking in sound discernment—to the point where the wicked sinners would give [good] names to the worst kinds of wicked deeds. [An Excerpt from As-Sawaa-iq al-Mursalah. 2/438)]

Muhammad Hijaab seduces married Muslim youth into disclosing bedroom secrets and embellishes the affair with a hadith to raise questions and defend the deed on the grounds that it is done in private and for the purpose of survey! We ask Allah to keep us away from temptation and evil desires, and we ask Allah saying:

اللَّهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ لِي دِينِي الَّذِي هُوَ عِصْمَةُ أَمْرِي
وَأَصْلِحْ لِي دُنْيَايَ الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَاشِي
وَأَصْلِحْ لِي آخِرَتِي الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَادِي
وَاجْعَلِ الْحَيَاةَ زِيَادَةً لِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ
وَاجْعَلِ الْمَوْتَ رَاحَةً لِي مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ

O Allah! Rectify my religion for me, which is the safeguard of my affairs; rectify my worldly [affairs], wherein is my livelihood; and rectify my Afterlife to which is my return, and make life for me [as a means of] increase in every good and make death for me as a rest from every evil. [Saheeh Muslim Number: 2720]:

O Allaah! Rectify My Religion For Me, Which The Safeguard of My Affairs – [A Tremendous Supplication]

[اللهم كما حَسَّنْت خَلْقِي فَحَسِّنْ خُلُقِي – O Allah! Just as You made my external form beautiful, make my character beautiful as well].

Question asked by nosy, idiotic, and pathetic attention-seeking Bid’ee: [Muhammad Hijaab]

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

Abu Hurairah [may Allah be pleased with him] reported that Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “Indeed, from the perfection of a person’s Islam is leaving that which is of no concern to him”. [Hassan Hadith. Reported by Imaam Tirmidhi and others]

The idiotic bid’ee Muhammad Hijaab asked married youth how many times they have sex every week?!

فمن حُسن إسلام المرء تركه ما لا يعنيه، التَّدخل فيما لا يعنيه قد يُسبب مشاكل، فمن حُسن إسلام المرء، ومن حُسن إيمانه، ومن حُسن سيرته: عدم التَّدخل فيما لا يعنيه،
فالإنسان إذا ابتعد عمَّا لا يعنيه، ولم يدخل في مشاكل الناس، ولا في سؤال فلانٍ وفلانٍ عمَّا لا يعنيه، فهذا هو من كمال إيمانه؛ لأنه قد يدخل في شيءٍ يضره، أو يُشوش على غيره، أو يُسبب فتنة

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: From the perfection of a person’s Islam is to leave what does not concern him. Interfering with what does not concern him may cause problems. From the perfection of a person’s Islam, from the perfection of his Imaan, and from the perfection of his conduct is not to interfere in what does not concern him. Therefore, if a person distances himself from what does not concern him- neither interferes with people’s problems nor asks so-and-so about what does not concern him, then this is part of the perfection of his Imaan, because indeed he may enter into something that either harms him or confuses others, or causes trial. (1)

Finally, even though every sane person may regard Muhammad’s question as very strange, intrusive, disrespectful, or vulgar; however, his bidah is worse than this question. Read on the link by Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allah preserve him]: Muhammad Hijab, the Falasifah, Mutafalsifah, and Jahmiyyah: Laying the Foundations for the Dīn of the Philosophers and Jahmites:



The Qiyaas (Analogy) That Led Iblis Astray and Destroys Many Amongst Humankind!

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

Imaam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him] said:

It has been said that Iblis’s exclusion (from Allah’s Mercy) resulted from false interpretation, for indeed, he drew a comparison with the divine text and prioritised the analogy over the text. He made an analogy about himself and that analogical reasoning takes precedence over the command to prostrate. [Iblees stated, as Allah informed us]:

“أنا خير منه – I am better than him (i.e. Adam)”, and that a virtuous one cannot humble himself to someone who has been given superior virtue to him; hence, he promptly responded: ” خلقتني من نار وخلقته من طين – You created me from fire, and him you created from clay”. He, therefore, reasoned that this analogical reasoning that resembles the truth, despite being false, will benefit him in his false interpretation. As a result of what occurred to him, he became the leader of everyone – up until the day of Judgement – who employs false interpretation of the divine text. There are many followers of this cursed leader in this world!

You will notice that it is similar to Iblis’s doubts, which he strives to present as true if you contemplate the vast majority of those doubts that are asserted as being genuine by those who use false interpretations of the divine texts and work to nullify them. So, someone says, “If the intellect and the text disagree, give the intellect the advantage.” This is where this principle originates, and the proponent of this affair uses it as a guiding principle to reject those divine texts that he asserts are at odds with the intellect, much like his leader who Iblis asserted that rational proof was at odds with the command to prostrate. He held this doubt as a result of his arrogance, which prevented him from submitting to the clear texts of divine revelation. Similar to this, you will discover that every false disputer who challenges the texts of the revelation does so out of pride. Allâh said:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُجَادِلُونَ فِي آيَاتِ اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ سُلْطَانٍ أَتَاهُمْ ۙ إِن فِي صُدُورِهِمْ إِلَّا كِبْرٌ مَّا هُم بِبَالِغِيهِ ۚ فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ

Verily, those who dispute about the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, without any authority having come to them, there is nothing else in their breasts except pride [to accept you (Muhammad ) as a Messenger of Allah and to obey you]. They will never have it (i.e. Prophethood which Allah has bestowed upon you). So seek refuge in Allah (O Muhammad from the arrogant). Verily, it is He Who is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer]. [Surah Ghaafir. Aayah 56] [An Excerpt from ‘As-Sawaa’iq Al-Mursalah 1/371-372 (slightly paraphrased)]

Who are your allies – the rich or the poor?

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

Basis of Distrust and Constant Debate Between Allies of The Rich and Allies of The Poor! [Economic Policy Influenced By Personal Interests, Greed and Ideology]

The Problem and Its Simple Solution If Only We Submit to The Infallible Final Revelation

Allaah [The Exalted] said:

[كَانَ ٱلنَّاسُ أُمَّةً۬ وَٲحِدَةً۬ فَبَعَثَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلنَّبِيِّـۧنَ مُبَشِّرِينَ وَمُنذِرِينَ وَأَنزَلَ مَعَهُمُ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ بِٱلۡحَقِّ لِيَحۡكُمَ بَيۡنَ ٱلنَّاسِ فِيمَا ٱخۡتَلَفُواْ فِيهِ‌ۚ – Mankind were one community (i.e. upon the upright path and Allaah’s Sharee’ah) and Allah sent Prophets with glad tidings and warnings, and with them He sent the Scripture in truth to judge between people in matters wherein they differed]. [Surah Al-Baqarah’ Aayah 213]

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “And even though there is something in the paths of analogical reasoning and reflection that will lead to knowledge, however sometimes it cannot give detail explanation in a dispute between the people of the earth due to the minute details and ambiguities [in that dispute], and at other times due to the fact the people differ when prioritizing necessities. Therefore, due to this Allaah [The Most High] commanded (us) to return to the revelation in times of dispute. Allaah [The Most High] designated the revealed Books [i.e. the Qur’aan being the final of them] as the judge between the people in matters wherein they differ”. (1)

Indeed, whenever – in our era – decisions are made on economic policy, there’s always a debate regarding which section of society is going to gain or lose. Imaam As-Sadi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] stated: The goals and policies of the people regarding wealth and poverty varies due to their personal interests, an absence of adherence to the truth and not giving consideration to the overall public interest. All of them erred (and missed) the path that would lead to beneficial results, because they do not adhere to the guidance of the Islamic religion. Their ideas vary and they acted accordingly, widespread evil and great strife occurred between those who claim to support the poor and the workers and those who cling to riches and wealth. They have a long discussion on this subject matter and all of it is tantamount to error and misguidance.

Allaah has guided the believers to a straight path in all their affairs in general, and in this matter in particular. All praise is due to Allaah, the Islamic Sharee’ah came to rectify the affairs of the rich and the poor as much as possible. When Allaah – The Exalted – decreed that individuals amongst humankind and Jinn will have different social statuses – among them the rich, the poor, the one of high social status and the one of lower social status – based on a Great judgment and underlying reasons that are too precise to describe, He then established a relationship of close ties between them- some given authority over others, established the practice of mutual exchange between them and some in need of others. The All-Wise Law Giver – [The One completely Wise in everything He decrees, and completely Wise in His Sayings, and in His Actions, and there is no deficiency in anything He decrees, says or does] – firstly ordained that they should be brothers, and that they should not take advantage of each other personally; but rather He instructed each of them to fulfil his obligation towards the other by way of which social harmony and the necessities of life are accomplished.

Islam obligated Zakaat from the wealth of the rich based on what is stated regarding its details in the divine revelation. It made spending a means of fulfilling the needs of the needy and a means to attaining the religious wellbeing that secures both the worldly and religious affairs; urges towards kind treatment at all times and on every occasion, obligated that the necessities of the needy are fulfilled- feed the hungry, provide clothing for those without sufficient clothing and pay for the necessities of the destitute. It also enjoins specific spending on family and children, and on what is related to their affairs, and fulfilment of all the obligations related to the mutual dealings that take place between the people. In addition to this, Islam commanded them that neither should they solely rely on their strength and power in seeking after earnings nor consider what they possess to be as a means of (permanent) tranquility and stability; but rather what they should constantly look at is obedience to Allaah, acknowledging Allaah’s favours, Allaah’s facilitation of ease, seeking Allaah’s assistance and thank Allaah for the wealth and prosperity He has favoured them with over others. Allaah obligated on them to confine themselves within the boundaries of Halaal and Haraam, and not to over-indulge in luxury and extravagance in a way that harms their morals, wealth and all their state of affairs; but rather they should be what Allaah has stated in Surah Al-Furqan, Aayah 67: [والذين إذا أنفقوا لم يسرفوا ولم يقتروا وكان بين ذلك قواما – And those, who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor niggardly, but hold a medium (way) between those (extremes)].

In addition, Allaah commanded them that their pursuit of wealth and the worldly things should be done in an honorable and honest manner, so that they are not tainted with evil gains, such as usury, gambling (see footnote b), swindle, fraud or deception; but rather they should adhere to the ordainments of the divine revelation in their dealings, just as they adhere to that in their personal acts of worship. Allaah commanded them to look at the poor with mercy and benevolence, and not with cruelty, harshness, selfishness, boastfulness, insolence and pride. So, due to these wise instructions, religious well-being becomes the highest degree of honor and perfection, and in such a case, wealth has a praiseworthy description, a perfect attribute, sublimity and loftiness, because indeed the divine revelation refined and purified it, exhorts a person to distance from vices and urges him (or her) to acquire virtues (i.e. virtues mentioned in the divine revelation)”. (2)

As for the manner in which the Islamic religion deals with the poor, it commanded them – as well as everyone else who fails to accomplished his personal wish- to be patient, accept Allaah’s decree, acknowledge that Allaah is All-Wise, possessor of perfect judgment and (All-Wise in) in His disposal of all affairs, and that there are various benefits in this (for a person).

Allaah said: [وعسى أن تكرهوا شيئا وهو خير لكم وعسى أن تحبوا شيئا وهو شر لكم والله يعلم وأنتم لا تعلمون – And it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know]. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Aayah 216]

This belief of theirs removes the sadness that enters the hearts and thus leads to helplessness and laziness. Then Allaah commanded them that neither should they seek to remove their poverty and seeking after their needs by depending on the people nor asking them except where it is unavoidable and when it is necessary to do so; and that they seek to remove their poverty through Allaah alone – by way of various activities and means, which Allaah has made a means to removing poverty, and every person preoccupies with the means that suits him and his situation; so, this benefits a person by freeing him from abject dependence, trains him to be strong and active, and fights against laziness and apathy, but also not envying the wealthy due to what Allaah has bestowed on them. Allaah said:

ولا تتمنوا ما فضل الله به بعضكم على بعض للرجال نصيب مما اكتسبوا وللنساء نصيب مما اكتسبن واسألوا الله من فضله إن الله كان بكل شيء عليما

And covet not for the things in which Allah has made some of you to excel others. For men there is reward for what they have earned, (and likewise) for women there is reward for what they have earned, and ask Allah of His Bounty. Surely, Allah is Ever All-Knower of everything. [Surah An-Nisaa. Aayah 32]

Allaah commanded them to be sincere in their work, dealings and crafts, and not to hasten in seeking their livelihood by indulging in vile gains that deprives a person of an upright adherence to the religion and corrupts the worldly affairs. And Allaah commanded them to do two things that would help them whilst facing the hardship of poverty: economize and to be contented with what Allaah has bestowed on them, (because) little sustenance alongside wise economization becomes a lot. Contentment is an inexhaustible treasure and richness without wealth. There are many poor people who are blessed with contentment and the ability to economize- neither wishing for what the luxurious people possess nor feeling bitter about their meager sustenance. When the poor people are guided by the guidance of the religion to exercise patience and attach themselves to Allaah, freed from abject dependence, working hard and striving in honorable and beneficial deeds and satisfied with Allaah’s grace, the burden and difficulty of poverty will be eased for them. In addition to this, they do not cease striving for self-sufficiency (and to obtain more provision), whilst hoping for the bounty of their Lord, awaiting His promise and fearing Him. Allaah said: [ ومن يتق الله يجعل له مخرجا ويرزقه من حيث لا يحتسب – And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). Allaah said: [ ومن يتوكل على الله فهو حسبه – And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him]. [Surah At-Talaaq. Aayaat 2-3]

The first affair is that the poor have been commanded – as well as everyone who fails to accomplished his personal wish- to be patient and accept Allaah’s decree. Allaah said:

[ وَلَنَبۡلُوَنَّكُم بِشَىۡءٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡخَوۡفِ وَٱلۡجُوعِ وَنَقۡصٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡأَمۡوَٲلِ وَٱلۡأَنفُسِ وَٱلثَّمَرَٲتِ‌ۗ وَبَشِّرِ ٱلصَّـٰبِرِينَ – And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).] [Surah Al-Baqarah. Aayah 155]

If the poor person exercise patience, he receives the reward of those who are patience and he is similar to the grateful wealthy person, because if the patient poor person and the grateful wealthy person are equal in their fear of Allaah, they are equal in status as has preceded from a statement of Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allaah have mercy upon him].

Acknowledge that Allaah is All-Wise, possesses perfect judgment and (All-Wise) in His disposal of all affairs, and that there are various benefits in this affair (for a person). It may be that the poor person hates his state of poverty, but it is better for him and more beneficial for him when he meets his Lord. It may be that wealth would have come to him and thus he is put to trial and turned away from the purpose of life (i.e. to worship Allaah alone and obey Him), so his poverty maybe better than if he was to be wealthy. And this why the author transmitted the Aayah: [وعسى أن تكرهوا شيئا وهو خير لكم وعسى أن تحبوا شيئا وهو شر لكم والله يعلم وأنتم لا تعلمون – and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know]. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Aayah 216]

This why a person should believe (with certainty) that Allaah is All-Wise in His disposal of all affairs and He knows everything about His servants. If a person has this belief, all the sadness in his heart will be removed, becomes active and embark upon seeking a livelihood.

Neither should they seek to remove their poverty and seeking after their needs by depending on the people nor asking them except where it is unavoidable and when it is necessary to do so.

They should seek to remove their poverty through Allaah alone- by way of what Allaah has made a means to removing poverty, and they are various activities and means, and every person preoccupies with the means that suits him and his situation, so a person benefits through this by being freed from the abject dependence, trains him to be strong and active, and fighting against laziness and apathy. This comprises of two instructions:

To seek Allaah’s Assistance, supplicating to Allaah, constantly supplicating to Allaah, seeking His protection against poverty and the trial of poverty, asking Allaah for bounty through His Names, such as Al-Wahhaab, Al-Muhsin, Al-Mannaan.

Employ the means, as Allaah said: [هُوَ ٱلَّذِى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ ذَلُولاً۬ فَٱمۡشُواْ فِى مَنَاكِبِہَا وَكُلُواْ مِن رِّزۡقِهِۦ‌ۖ وَإِلَيۡهِ ٱلنُّشُورُ -it is, Who has made the earth subservient to you (i.e. easy for you to walk, to live and to do agriculture on it, etc.), so walk in the path thereof and eat of His provision, and to Him will be the Resurrection]. [Surah Al-Mulk. Aayh 15]

So, a person strives in work and to earn a livelihood- through permissible means and those means legislated in the divine legislation, gradually improves in his work, even if it is the case that he is not satisfied with the work he is doing or that it is not a sufficient means of livelihood, but rather he works until he reaches another job that is more beneficial.

Should not envy the wealthy people due to what Allaah has bestowed on them. The poor person should beware of envy, because the wealth in the possession of the wealthy is Allaah’s bounty and favour, therefore envying them for such wealth is tantamount to being an enemy of Allaah’s bounty. Yes, indeed if a person sees something in the possession of another person, he may wish that he has the same and this called Ghibtah (i.e. to wish for the thing, but not envying the person); but it is forbidden if one hates such blessing that is bestowed on another person, or wishes that such blessing should cease to exist or strives to stop it. Just one would not wish that he is envied, or that someone wishes that such blessing should cease or strives to stop it, then likewise he should not behave in such a manner towards others.

They should be sincere in their work, dealings and crafts. So when they are bestowed with some work, they should be sincere, truthful and deal with others in a good manner, because these are some of the means to Barakah (i.e. to be blessed) in one’s livelihood as opposed to the affair of the one who deceives in his dealings, lies, behaves badly etc.

Should not hasten in seeking livelihood by indulging in vile gains that deprives a person of an upright adherence to the religion and corrupts the worldly affairs. Some poor people want to remove the problem of poverty without caring how that is done, so he does not care about entering into usury, or whether he steals, transgresses, deceives and lies. The other affair one should beware of is not to go to the magicians, the soothsayers and sorcerers to obtain amulets from them, whilst thinking that this would end poverty. So, when one of them wants to enter into a business, he goes to a sorcerer for consultation regarding his business or his journey, or he goes to a magician…this is a destruction of one’s religion. Likewise, one should not attach himself to the dead inhabitants of the graves, such as what some of the ignorant people do when they seek to solve a problem by attaching themselves to the dead inhabitants of the graves, invoking them and vowing to them. This is tantamount to Shirk (polytheism).

Allaah commanded them to do two things that would help them whilst facing the hardship of poverty: to economize and be contented with what Allaah has bestowed on them, (because) little sustenance alongside wise economization becomes a lot. Contentment is an inexhaustible treasure and richness without wealth.

Economization: The person’s food, drink, dwelling place and means of transportation are all within what he can afford. This is very important because many people spend beyond their means until they owe debts which they cannot afford to repay, even though he would have been able to live based on what he can afford. So by way of economization, little wealth becomes plentiful and a person is blessed with the little he possesses, but if he is not satisfied with economization, then this would harm him.

Contentment: To be satisfied with what one has. The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, “Wealth is not in having many possessions; but rather true wealth is the richness of the soul”. [Hadeeth Number 6446] The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, “‘’Whoever among you wakes up [in the morning] safe in his property, healthy in his body and has his daily nourishment, it is as if he has been granted the entire world”. [Sunan Ibn Maajah. Hadeeth 4141]

There are many poor people who are blessed with contentment and the ability to economize- neither wishing for what the luxurious people possess nor feeling bitter about their meager sustenance.

Not to look at those above you, rather look at those below lest you belittle the blessings of Allah that have been bestowed upon you. Do look at the one who has more wealth or trade than you, or the one with a better house, a better livelihood or means of transport, but rather look at the one who is below you. That is because when you look at the one who has less wealth, you’ll say “Alhamdulil laah”; but if you look at the one above, you’ll belittle the blessings you have and then say, “I don’t have anything”, and you forget the many other blessings, such as the blessing of Islam, the blessing of good health, the blessing of a dwelling place, the blessing of safety, the blessing of children etc. The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said: “Look at those who are below you and do not look at those above you, for it is more suitable lest you look down on Allaah’s blessings”. [Saheeh Muslim. Hadeeth Number 2963]

When the poor people are guided by the guidance of the religion to exercise patience and attach themselves to Allaah, freed from abject dependence, working hard and striving in honorable and beneficial deeds and satisfied with Allaah’s grace, the burden and difficulty of poverty will be eased for them. In addition to this, they do not cease striving for self-sufficient (and to obtain more provision), hoping for the bounty of their Lord, awaiting His promise and fearing Him. Allaah said: [ومن يتق الله يجعل له مخرجا ويرزقه من حيث لا يحتسب – And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty)]. [ ومن يتوكل على الله فهو حسبه – And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him]. [Surah At-Talaaq. Aayaat 2-3]

Taqwah [Fear of Allaah] is to act in obedience to Allaah upon a light from Allaah [i.e. Eemaan, sincerity, guidance etc] and hoping for reward from Allah. And you abandon disobedience to Allaah upon a light from Allah and fearing the punishment of Allah.

Increase in Istighfaar – seeking Allaah’s forgiveness. Allaah said [that Prophet Nooh (peace be upon him) said to his people]:

فَقُلۡتُ ٱسۡتَغۡفِرُواْ رَبَّكُمۡ إِنَّهُ ۥ كَانَ غَفَّارً۬ا
يُرۡسِلِ ٱلسَّمَآءَ عَلَيۡكُم مِّدۡرَارً۬ا
وَيُمۡدِدۡكُم بِأَمۡوَٲلٍ۬ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجۡعَل لَّكُمۡ جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ وَيَجۡعَل لَّكُمۡ أَنۡہَـٰرً۬ا

I said (to them): “Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Oft-Forgiving; He will send rain to you in abundance; and give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers”. [Surah Nooh. Aayaat 10-12]

So, when a person has little, he should increase in Istighfaar. A man came to Imaam al-Hasan Al-Basri [may Allaah have mercy upon him] and complained about poverty, so he said to him, “Seek Allaah’s forgiveness”. A second man came to him and complained to him about not having children, he said to him, “Seek Allaah’s forgiveness”. Another one came to him and complain about his orchard that it is dry, he said to him, “Seek Allaah’s forgiveness”. So, a man who was present said to him, “Everyone who came to you was told to seek Allaah’s forgiveness!” He replied, “I did not say more than what is in the Qur’aan”, then he recited:

فَقُلۡتُ ٱسۡتَغۡفِرُواْ رَبَّكُمۡ إِنَّهُ ۥ كَانَ غَفَّارً۬ا
يُرۡسِلِ ٱلسَّمَآءَ عَلَيۡكُم مِّدۡرَارً۬ا
وَيُمۡدِدۡكُم بِأَمۡوَٲلٍ۬ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجۡعَل لَّكُمۡ جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ وَيَجۡعَل لَّكُمۡ أَنۡہَـٰرً۬ا

I said (to them): “Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Oft-Forgiving; He will send rain to you in abundance; and give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers”. [Surah Nooh. Aayaat 10-12] In these Aayaat, Allaah mentioned Istighfaar and then mentioned its worldly fruitful outcomes. As for in the afterlife, the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said: “Glad tidings to those who find a lot of seeking forgiveness in the record of their deeds”. [Sunan Ibn Maajah. Hadeeth Number 3818]

The person should not reply upon the means he employs to seek provision, rather he should rely and depend on Allaah alone. Allaah said: [ومن يتوكل على الله فهو حسبه – And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him].

So, the person employs the means and is eager in seeking what benefits him, such as trade or some craftmanship, but he relies upon Allaah alone. The Prophet said that when one – whilst leaving his (or her) home – says: [بِسْمِ اللَّهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ – In the name of Allah, I trust in Allah for there is no movement or might but in Allah], it will be said to him that you have been sufficed and protected, and the devils will be far from him. [Saheeh Sunan Tirmidhee. Hadeeth Number 3426]

These religious teachings and guidance – from Allaah and His Messenger – for the rich and poor will bring them good, prevent them from evil and harm, and produce for them the most beautiful fruitful outcomes in this life and the next. This is the only solution – from Ar Rabb Al-Majeed (see footnote a) – to the problem of wealth and poverty, and everything else besides it is suffering and misery, harm and destruction. And Allaah is the Bestower of success. (3)

Alteration of sound natural disposition – (Beliefs and Natural Physical Appearance)- is the goal of shaytaan and his human Allies

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

Allaah [The Exalted] informed us in Surah An-Nisaa Ayah 119 that shaytaan said:

[وَلَأُضِلَّنَّهُمْ -Verily, I will mislead them]- Meaning, from the truth. [وَلَأُمَنِّيَنَّهُم – And surely, I will arouse in them false desires]- Ibn Abbaas said: He (shaytaan) desires to hinder (them) from repentance and to delay it. (1)

[وَلَآمُرَنَّهُمْ فَلَيُبَتِّكُنَّ آذَانَ الْأَنْعَامِ – I will order them to slit the ears of cattle]- Meaning, cut off the ears of the cattle]. [وَلَآمُرَنَّهُمْ فَلَيُغَيِّرُنَّ خَلْقَ اللَّهِ – And indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah]: Ibn Abbaas said: He (ibleees) intends by this the religion ordained by Allaah. And the meaning of this is that Allaah created His slaves upon an upright fitrah (i.e. an upright natural disposition that will enable them to recognize Allaah, accept the call of the messengers when it reaches them and worship Allaah alone), as He (the most high) said:

فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًا ۚ فِطْرَتَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي فَطَرَ النَّاسَ عَلَيْهَا ۚ لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِخَلْقِ اللَّهِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الدِّينُ الْقَيِّمُ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
مُنِيبِينَ إِلَيْهِ وَاتَّقُوهُ

So set you (O Muhammad) your face towards the religion of true Monotheism- Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone) Allah’s Fitrah (i.e. Allah’s Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq–illah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. (Always) Turning in repentance to Him (only), and be afraid and dutiful to Him….[Soorah Ar-Rum Aayaat 30-31]

And this is why the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: Every child is born on a Fitrah [a natural disposition to recognize Allaah, accept the call of the messengers when it reaches them and worship Allaah alone], but parents convert them him/her to Judaism, Christianity or Magianism, as an animal gives birth to a perfect baby animal, do you find it mutilated? Then after (narrating this hadeeth) Abu Hurairah recited: [فِطْرَتَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي فَطَرَ النَّاسَ عَلَيْهَا- Allah’s Islamic Monotheism, with which He has created mankind.

Therefore, he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) mentioned two affairs: The alteration of the fitrah through Judaism and Christianity and the alteration of the original natural physical appearance of the creation through mutilation. They are two affairs which iblees said that he must change- alteration of the natural disposition (through) incitement towards disbelief and alteration of the original natural physical appearance through mutilation. So he (iblees) changes the fitrah through incitement towards shirk and alteration of the original natural appearance (of the creation) through cutting and mutilation. This one is alteration of the fitrah of the soul and that one the alteration of the original natural appearance of the creation. (2)

And Allaah [The Exalted] stated:

قَالَ فَبِمَا أَغْوَيْتَنِي لَأَقْعُدَنَّ لَهُمْ صِرَاطَكَ
ثُمَّ لَآتِيَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ وَعَنْ أَيْمَانِهِمْ وَعَنْ شَمَائِلِهِمْ وَلاَ تَجِدُ أَكْثَرَهُمْ شَاكِرِينَ

(Iblis) said: “Because You have sent me astray, surely I will sit in wait against them (human beings) on Your Straight Path. Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left, and You will not find most of them as thankful ones (i.e. they will not be dutiful to You).”

[ثُمَّ لَآتِيَنَّهُم مِّن بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ – Then I will come to them from before them and behind them]: Ibn Abbaas said that this means, “I [Iblees] will bring doubts to them about the Hereafter”. [وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ – and behind them], meaning, “I [Iblees] will make them covetous for the worldly things”. [وَعَنْ أَيْمَانِهِمْ – and from their right], meaning, “I [Iblees] will make their religion obscure [by making them hold onto doubtful matters which they would consider to be the truth]”. [وَعَن شَمَائِلِهِمْ – and from their left]: Al-Hasan said this means, “’I [Iblees] will command them to commit evil deeds, urge them toward it and beautify it in their eyes [i.e. make it fair seeming to them]”.

It has also been reported from Ibn Abbaas who said that Iblees did not say “And from above them”’ because he knows that Allaah is above them. Qataadah said, “O son of Adam! Shaytaan comes to you from every direction but not from above because he is not able to come between you and the Mercy of Allaah”. (3)

[Ref 1: A’laam Al-Muwaqqi’een 1/67-69]
[Ref 2: Ighaathatul Luhfaan 1/105-107]
[Ref 3: Ighaathatul lahfaan 1/105-107]

Which animal do you want to own when you make hijrah?

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

The owners of camels and the owners of sheep praised (the animals in their possession), so the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, “Musa was sent (i.e. as a Messenger) and he was a shepherd; Dawud was sent and he was a shepherd, and I was sent and was a shepherd at Aj’yaad [i.e. a neighbourhood in Makkah]”.

Al-Allaamah Zaid Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: Those who look after livestock are different in what they look after: camels, cows and sheep. Ownership depends on what a human being is in need of. So, which type of livestock did the Prophet consider to be better? The hadeeth is proof to show that sheep is better, greater in blessing and more beneficial for their owners. (However), this does not negate the fact that one should be eager to own a camel and a cow, so that he can benefit from them in a number of other ways, such as to obtain milk, carry things and other than that. And Allaah knows best.

Divide and Rule to Consolidate Corruption 

Allaah [The Exalted] said:

إِنَّ فِرۡعَوۡنَ عَلَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَجَعَلَ أَهۡلَهَا شِيَعً۬ا يَسۡتَضۡعِفُ طَآٮِٕفَةً۬ مِّنۡہُمۡ يُذَبِّحُ أَبۡنَآءَهُمۡ وَيَسۡتَحۡىِۦ نِسَآءَهُمۡ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُفۡسِدِينَ

Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidoon]. [Surah Al-Qasas. Verse 4]

[وَجَعَلَ أَهۡلَهَا شِيَعً۬ا – and made its people sects]- Meaning: Different group that were organised and distinguished, and he utilised each group in that which he desired in his kingdom. (1) He made them into sects and different groups to serve him and they went along with what he wanted and obeyed him. (2) He made them into different distinct groups, dealt with them based on his evil desires and subjugated them as he wanted by means of his power and authority. (3) He divided them into different sects and they went along with him in everything he desired of evil and corruption, or he used some as a means to get others to obey him; or he made them into different distinct groups under his service and used every group in some type of work, such as construction, tillage, earthwork (drilling etc) and other burdensome work, and whoever did not work was beaten, so they served him by doing so; or he made them into sects and incited hatred and enmity between them, so that they do not come to an agreement (or become united in their stance against him). (4)

[ إِنَّهُ ۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُفۡسِدِينَ – Verily, he was of the Mufsidoon]- Meaning: Those whose intention is neither to rectify the religious nor worldly affairs, and this was from his corrupt behaviour in the earth; (5) committing unlawful killing and being disobedient to Allaah. (6)


Infiltration- Hypocrites Within Muslim Ranks to Initiate Bidah and Splitting

Shaikh Shamsuddeen Al-Afghaanee [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said:

Allaah [The Most High] guided mankind though Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and though what he brought of manifest evidences and guidance-a guidance that could not be described by those who were proficient in giving descriptions and surpassed the knowledge of those with great perception. So, though this guidance that was given to the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi- wasallam], Allaah [The Most High] opened the eyes of the blind ones, the ears of the deaf ones and the hearts of the heedless ones. Allaah [The Most High] united them upon one religion-[the religion of Islamic monotheism; Ibraaheem’s [alayhis-salaam] religion of pure monotheism]-after they had been in complete disunity, enmity towards one another, upon destructive and corrupt creeds. Allaah united their hearts and they became true brothers in Islaam by way of this great blessing. And thereafter everything that was worshiped besides Allaah-such as graves, trees, stones, images, idols etc- ceased to exist and all worship was carried out for Allaah (alone). The people followed the true Religion of Islamic monotheism; they worshipped Allaah alone and established worship sincerely for Allaah, except those whom Allaah willed that they were to remain as people of polytheism, hypocrisy and followers of the altered and distorted previous scriptures. The darkness of shirk was dispelled and the banner of Tawheed was raised in the lands-amongst the Arabs and non-Arabs. The Messenger passed away, whilst Islaam was established and in authority-superseding all other ways of life and creeds. Then the rightly guided calips of the Messenger continued upon this path until the two powerful and great nations at the time-Rome and Persia-ended up in humiliation, degradation and in a state of fear after they had been in a state of security, and thus Caesar was restricted and besieged, and khosrau was subdued and destroyed.

So when the enemies of Islaam saw that they were unable to do away with this religion, they implanted their disbelieving agents within Islam, who pretended to be Muslims in order to foment confusion, trials and tribulations; and in order to spread shirk by exaggerating the status of the pious people and exalting their graves with [beliefs and practices] that were not ordained by Allaah. So, this Ummah was put to trial through the plots of the [atheist, heretic and hypocrite] Abdullaah Bin Saba, who claimed Uloohiyyah [i.e. the right to be worship] for Ali Ibn Abee Taalib [radiyallaahu- anhu]. Abdullaah Bin As-Sabah’s followers were known as the Saaba-iyyah, and later on they were known as the rawaafid (shiites), the ismaaliyyah (shittes), the nusayriyah (shiites) and other than them amongst the Baatiniyyah. They used to worship the graves and the dead, and they used to build places of worship and domed [shaped] shrines upon these graves. So, by way of this they revived the practices of the Yahood, the Nasaaraa and the idol worshippers, and thus the practices of the worshippers of graves in this Muslim Ummah manifested itself in actions that were carried out by the rawaafid (shiites). (7)


Cultural War

The Strategy of King Louis IX: In the year 1250 King Louis IX was captured whilst on a crusade against the Muslims of Egypt. He was imprisoned and later released after paying a large ransom. However, whilst in prison he utilised his time to think about ways in which to plot against Islaam and the Muslims, so shaytaan inspired him with the following plots: Firstly: The war in the battlefield between the Christians of the west and the Muslims should be replaced with a war based on ideas and cultural supremacy. Secondly: Prepare the West to corrupt the creed of the Muslims and distort the image of Islaam in the world. (8)


Corrupt The Next Generation of Muslims Through Education

The Strategy of Zimmer: Al-Allaamah Abdullah Bin Humayd [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: Zimmer was a head of Christian Missionaries and he sent Christian missionaries to the various regions of the Arab-Islamic Countries. He gathered them before dispersing them and said, ‘’Inform me of what you will be doing in the Muslim countries?’’ One of them said: ‘’I will convert five to Christianity.’’ Another said: ‘’I will convert two to Christianity, and I will give them the blessings of Christianity and make them thankful.’’ He (Zimmer) said: ‘’You have not understood our desired objective! It is not possible to convert the Muslims to Christianity; it is not possible for the Muslims to reject their religion, except if you teach them. The most important thing is that you teach the Muslim children by sowing doubts in their souls about their religion and rejection in their souls against their countries. And eventually when one of them sets up an organisation in his country, he will give no importance to anything else except his desires. And when he gathers wealth, he will do so according to his desires. Therefore, he ends up having no religion and no connection with his Creator. Therefore, cultivate the lands of Muhammad [i.e. the Muslim lands] upon this.’’ And he (Zimmer) said in another speech of his: ‘’Indeed, Islaam is like a tree, therefore cut off its branches. Its branches are the children of the Muslims, therefore teach them so that they can aid you to cut off the tree of Islaam in their countries. You will not be able to cut it off yourselves, rather teach their children to aid you in uprooting it in their countries.’’ (9)

Strategy of Some Militant Secularists Through Education: Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: They seek to conquer the intellects of the Muslim children and nurture their hearts upon their views, either by making them feel that their ways are superior in every affair-be it in affairs of creed and religion, or that which they speak with by way of languages, or what they consider to be civilized manners, customs etc.. They seek to nurture a great number of Muslims in the Muslim lands until they are intoxicated with their views and return them to their lands. Then they start praising and promoting them until they become the figureheads in their countries. So they spread their ideas through these people…etc They encourage the Muslims in the Muslim lands to learn their languages at the expense of the Arabic language, which is the language of the Qur’aan- the language by way of which the Muslims perform their acts of worship. They also establish many studies that are intended to cause nuisance and glorify what they call popular literature and national heritage…..etc They prepare a large number of people amongst their people to study Islam and the Arabic language and write books, and take up teaching positions in universities- orientalists….etc They also spread propaganda that Muslim women in the Muslim lands are oppressed in order to take them out of their homes and place them where they want. But Allaah (The Most High) said:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُلْ لِأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ جَلابِيبِهِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَنْ يُعْرَفْنَ فَلا يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا

O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” They set up radio programmes designed to mislead gullible young Muslims who do not understand Islam and do not have sufficient knowledge, especially in Africa…. However if the Muslims exercise patience these plots will not harm them.

Allaah (The Most High) said: [وَإِنْ تَصْبِرُوا وَتَتَّقُوا لا يَضُرُّكُمْ كَيْدُهُمْ شَيْئًا إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ مُحِيطٌ – But if you remain patient and become Al-pious, not the least harm will their cunning do to you. Surely, Allah surrounds all that they do]. (10)

Misleading The Muslims Through Political Analysis 

Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: Some people say: “The one who does not understand the knowledge of current affairs is not a scholar” and they forget that indeed the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, “Whoever Allaah wishes good for, He grants him understanding of the religion.” Then they become heedless of an existing reality, which is that busying oneself with the knowledge of current affairs diverts a person from [seeking] understanding of the religion; rather it might preoccupy [and divert] him from correct worship, and that is to worship Allaah alone, devoting one’s heart to Allaah, pondering upon Allaah’s universal signs [i.e. the things He has created] and Allaah’s divine revelation. In reality, preoccupying the youth with the Knowledge of current affairs prevents them from [seeking] understanding of Allaah’s Religion [i.e. the religion ordained by Allaah], because the heart is a vessel and it does not take another thing when it is filled with something else; therefore, it is not possible to fill it with this and that.

Busying oneself with the understanding of the Religion, fulfilling acts of worship and Tawheed, and sincerity, is better for him [i.e. it is what leads to well-being, rectification and for a person], rather than looking into the knowledge of current affairs and regarding what such and such person is about? And maybe one acquires knowledge of current affairs through weak and fabricated narrations via the media, or he bases knowledge of current affairs on the analysis and speculations of a person. The person who is engaged in the subject matter of current affairs may seek to establish an analysis that are far from what the current affairs [shows in reality], or he looks into affairs that have been concocted for him by the enemies [regarding] a particular [expected] event; but then this event happens to be something else and does not exist at all, so all those plans come to nothing. Therefore, what is of [paramount] importance is that one acquires understanding of what Islaam requires of a person. And the understanding related to one’s self [necessitates] rectification of heart by way of sound Aqeedah and to wish good for the Muslims, and this is [also] connected to the understanding of halaal, haraam and other affairs of a similar nature. A person must acquaint himself with knowledge of current affairs if he is in need of it; but as for giving it complete importance in relation to affairs [or events] that have not occurred in reality, such as lies, deception, analysis and speculation, this has no [sound] basis. (11)


Popping Up Dissidents and So called Activists to Destabilise Muslim Lands In The Name of Human Rights

Shaikh Saaleh Aala Ash-Shaikh [may Allah preserve him] said: The major powers – amongst the countries – utter this term if they want to impose something new on nations, society and the people regardless of their countries and cultures. So, after the Second World War, they wanted to establish a new world order by way of which the major powers would be able to control all countries. At times this control is cultural, sometimes through strong opinions and the exercise of freedoms at other times, and power is exercised through interference in the affairs of the countries in which they want to interfere.

Believer’s Bahaviour Towards Muslim Rulers:


Regime Change  

Rebutted By Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him]

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَإِذۡ قَالَ إِبۡرَٲهِـۧمُ رَبِّ ٱجۡعَلۡ هَـٰذَا بَلَدًا ءَامِنً۬ا وَٱرۡزُقۡ أَهۡلَهُ ۥ مِنَ ٱلثَّمَرَٲتِ مَنۡ ءَامَنَ مِنۡہُم بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡيَوۡمِ ٱلۡأَخِرِ‌ۖ

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said, “My Lord, make this city (Makkah) a place of security and provide its people with fruits, such of them as believe in Allah and the Last Day.” [Surah Al-Baqarah. Verse 126]

Indeed, he [i.e. Prophet Ibraaheem Peace be upon him)] gave priority to security (in his supplication) over seeking sustenance, because security is a necessity. Security is a necessity and the people cannot enjoy sustenance alongside fear; rather sustenance cannot be reached in the presence of fear. This is what the enemies’ desire–those who try to destabilise the Muslim societies. They wish to disassociate the Muslims from their unity behind their Muslim rulers. This is what they desire and they do not desire good advice for the Muslims.

(They wish to disassociate the Muslims from their unity behind their rulers) in name of actualizing beneficial affairs, rectification, removal of oppression and the likes. All of this is lies and false pretenses, because if ruler ship slips away chaos will be at large, corruption will spread and the beneficial affairs which they say will be actualized will be non-existent. Corruption will be at large and there will not be rectification.

Therefore, for this reason there has to be ruler ship upon which the Muslims unite. And even if (such ruler ship) has shortcomings and (affairs pertaining to) negligence, the (people) should exercise patience, because there is a prevention of that which is more severe and harmful in exercising patience. Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said: ‘’It is not known of a group that rose against their Muslim Ruler, except that their state of affairs after his removal was more evil than their state of affairs whilst he was present.’’ And this is something experienced at present. The rulers and heads of state who have been removed, what is the state of affairs of their countries after they were (removed)? There has not ceased to be fear, anxiety, chaos, bloodshed etc. (12)


Protests and Demonstrations

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee [may Allaah preserve him] was asked: Demonstrations and revolutions, and nurturing the youth upon it; is this from the methodology of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah or not, whether (carried) out within or outside the Muslim countries? Answer: This is the methodology of Marx (i.e. Carl Marx), Lenin (i.e. Vladimir Lenin) and those similar to them. It is not from the Islamic methodology. Revolutions, bloodshed, trials and troubles are Marx’s and Lenin’s school of thought. (13)

Al-Allaamah Zayd Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: Protests [or demonstrations] are newly invented matters in the religion. Every newly invented matter in the religion is an innovation, every innovation in religion is misguidance and every misguidance is in the hell fire [i.e. is a path leading to the hell fire]. Allaah’s legislation is perfect and complete-based on The Book and The Sunnah-and we do not know of anything by way of the evidences in the Book and the Sunnah that makes it permissible for a handful of people to gather for demonstrations, which causes disturbance for the people and time wasting. And greater than this [disturbance and time wasting] is abandonment of the prayers [during protests] and the loss of life [i.e. murder]. If one was to kill a Muslim in a single protest, the one [or those] who called to such protests will carry his sins-be it an individual, a group or those who participate. It has been reported in an authentic hadeeth: The termination of the world means less to Allah than the killing of a Muslim [i.e. without right].[a] These protests are nothing but bidah and acts of misguidance advocated by shaytaan; [enticed] by the urge of the evil soul and desires. And these enemies [i.e. shaytaan, the urge of the evil soul and desires] do not come together in any affair except that the religion and worldly affairs are destroyed, just as it is the case in these demonstrations [or protests].

The end results of protests [or demonstrations]: Carnage, destruction, wastage of wealth and time and terrorising those living in peace. And how many disadvantages are there in [that]! It is enough to be considered something sinister due to the fact that the Noble Messengers and the Great Prophets who were put to trial and harmed by their people did not hold protests [or demonstrations]. Neither did they engage in plotting to cause explosions nor committing suicide; rather Islaam has forbidden all of that.

Those who call to protests [or demonstrations] and hold that there is success in it, they are mistaken and they have missed the correct path. Rectification of the affairs can only be by way of the Book and The Sunnah in accordance with the understanding of those scholars who are firmly grounded in knowledge. So whoever calls the people to this chaos, then indeed he has brought about a means to corrupting the land and the slaves, and what has occurred – in the past and at present- is a witness to that.

Therefore, we warn the students of knowledge that they are not persuaded by the speech of those who allow protests [or demonstrations]. They say that peaceful demonstrations are permissible-as they categorise it into this categorisation- without proofs and concrete evidence from the Book and the Sunnah- neither from the actions of the Messenger and the Noble Sahaabah nor from the Notable Imaams; rather the verdict on protests [or demonstrations] is only what has been stated earlier and as well as what has been written by other than myself [i.e. protests (or demonstrations) are not permissible]. (14)

Closing The Door Of Rebellion Against The Ruler – By Shaikh Abu Iyaadh [may Allaah preserve him]:

The Ruling Concerning Street Demonstrations In Non-Muslim Countries (Shaikh Abdullah Al-Bukhari):


A Group of Scholars and Their Outstanding Students Fulfil The Obligation of Exposing The Plots of The Allies of Iblees

Allaah [The Exalted] said: [يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ خُذُواْ حِذۡرَڪُمۡ فَٱنفِرُواْ ثُبَاتٍ أَوِ ٱنفِرُواْ جَمِيعً۬ا – O you who believe! Take your precautions, and either go forth (on an expedition) in parties, or go forth all together]. [Surah An-Nisaa. Verse 71]

Imaam As-Sadi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: Allaah commands His believing servants to take precautions against their disbelieving enemies. This includes utilizing all the means by way of which one is aided to fight them, repel their plots and strength, such as constructing defensive structures, (digging) trenches, learning how to shoot and ride, and engaging in the occupations that will aid one to accomplish this, as well as the means through which one becomes acquainted with their pursuits and plots”. (15)

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee al-Mad’khalee [may Allaah preserve him] said: So it is not permissible for the Ulamaa to remain heedless of their plans (i.e. the enemies of Islaam), their actions, their publications, their missionary activities and their various calls (to the Muslims). And also the various poisons they are infusing – which are in opposition to the Qur’aan and the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and his Sunnah. And nor of what plans they have for (the destruction of) the beliefs and methodologies of Islaam. It is not permissible either, to remain heedless of their concentrated efforts to Christianize or secularize the Muslim youth. And along with that, the Muslim youth and the students are not able to oppose this plan and strategy. Rather it is necessary that the distinguished Ulamaa – those who are experienced and shrewd – it is for such people, in all the places to undertake this duty. So it is obligatory for some of the intelligent and ingenious people from the field of Aqeedah to be mobilised for opposing these plans. And likewise it is a must that the intelligent and distinguished from amongst the specialists in the Sunnah – that they be mobilised for the refutation of these and similarly the eminent and distinguished from amongst those in the fields of Orientalism for the refutation of the plans of the Orientalists.”

He also says: “I myself believe that it is a benefit – rather it is of necessity – that we know what the enemies are planning for us, and that it is necessary for us to prepare (ourselves in strength) to destroy their plans. However, I do not exaggerate in this matter, rather my view is the view of our Ulamaa and they have all agreed upon this – that amongst the obligatory matters there are some that are Fard Ain and others that are Fard Kifaayah – and even if knowing the state of the enemies is harmful – it is still necessary for us to know it – but it is treated as Fard Kifaayah. When some attend to it, then the harm is removed from the rest” up until he said: “So I consider that there is no criticism for the Ulamaa and the students of knowledge who take great concern for preserving the Sharee’ah of Allaah – in terms of the Book, the Sunnah and its understanding – for this is one of the duties of the Kifaayah actions. And I believe that these people are more superior, noble, truthful and of more benefit to Islaam than those who are weak in their knowledge of the religion of Allaah or those who have no share in acquainting themselves with it.” (16)

We ask Allaah to protect the Ummah from its internal and external enemies Aameen.
