[2] Reminders: Rebellion

Imaam Nawawi (rahimahullaah) said:

”As for rebelling against them (i.e. the rulers) and fighting them, it is forbidden by way of consensus of the Muslims (i.e. scholars of Islam) even if they (i.e. rulers) are sinful and oppressive.  And indeed the ahaadeeth are manifestly clear regarding what we have mentioned and Ahlus Sunnah (i.e. the Ulama of Ahlus Sunnah) have consensus that the ruler is not removed due to (him being) sinful.” [Sharh An-Nawawi 12/229]

[4] Greenlane’s Admin [Deceitful Hizbiyyoon] Principles that can never be abandoned

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

Al-Allaamah Ubaid Ibn Abdillaah Al-Jaabiri (may Allaah preserve him) said:

A scholar from Ahlus Sunnah is only a human; he can be distracted and forgetful; he can be deceived by evil people; or he used to consider that man to be trustworthy–who has now been declared untrustworthy–and he deceives him. The witnesses to this affair are many, because many of those whose status has been dropped– due to been declared unreliable based on evidence–are in reality people who wage war against the Sunnah and its people.  So they come along with copies of their books and read it to the distinguished scholars–those whom virtue and leadership is witnessed for them in the religion–and the affair of this trickster and plotter is hidden from that noble scholar, which had he known about it the status of this person would have dropped in his eyes.

So this scholar gives praise based on what he heard. And if the book (of this trickster) is printed, it is disseminated and transmitted by his supporters and they spread a good reputation about him. Thus there are those who argue saying, “such and such praised him–Al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah), or Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah), or Ibn Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) praised this book. However these scholars are excused; rather this trickster was hidden from that scholar.

So, what remains? We establish the evidence against this [deceiver, trickster, intrigant and plotter] from his books.  We establish the manifest clarifications against him from his books, and we say to the one who argues with us, “Take it, this is his speech.’’ Therefore, it is obligatory on you to be fair, and to be free from that wild and zealous attachment; and to be free from desires that blind a person. It is obligatory upon you that your search should be for the truth.

 

Al-Allaamah Ubaid Ibn Abdillaah Al-Jaabiri (may Allaah preserve him) also stated:

If the affair of a person is hidden from you–the one whose books and cassettes are famous and his fame is widespread–then ask those who are well acquainted with him and those who know about his state of affairs.  That is because neither is the Sunnah hidden nor are its people. A man’s Tazkiyah (i.e. the clear witness that he is upright upon the Sunnah) are his own actions. His Tazkiyah are his own actions that he is upon the Sunnah. It is the witness and the people mention him with it during his life and after his death.

 

The Shaikh (may Allaah preserve him) also said:

The one who knows of a mistake and it is clear to him, then it is not permissible for him to blindly follow a scholar to whom an affair is hidden. And indeed you already heard yesterday that the scholars are not infallible in their Ijtihaadaat (i.e. in their efforts and striving to reach the correct verdicts). Therefore, it is not permissible to adopt them (i.e. the mistakes of the scholars) as a methodology (to follow).  [End of quote: Paraphrased and Abridged, See Link: www.sahab.net/home/?p=329]


 

Reader: The evidence is with the Salafiyyoon of SalafiPublications and the rest of the Maraakiz of Salafiyyah.  The presence of personalities at Greenlane can never change the reality, as Shaikh Ubaid said: ‘’The one who knows of a mistake and it is clear to him, then it is not permissible for him to blindly follow a scholar to whom an affair is hidden.’’

By Allaah! We will warn against Greenlane and we will speak the haqq abaout them.  We will refute the arguments of anyone who defends Greenlane, regardless who they are!  The only noble option left for Greenlane is that they stop defiling the name of salafiyyah through their  repugnant hizbiyyah and alliance with ahlul bidah.   These above principles mentioned by Shaikh Ubaid can never be abandoned, regardless of what others say about Greenlane’s Admin, whilst they persist in their hizbiyyah and alliance with ahlul bidah.  And Allaah knows best.

Today’s Lectures of Ustaadh Abu Hakeem, Ustaadh Amjad and Ustaadh Abu Idrees

Assalaamu alaykum warahmatullaah;

Indeed brothers and sisters, this conference was filled with tremendous advises for the family.  Ustaadh Abu Hakeem’s (may Allaah preserve him) lectures based on Ibn Jawzi’s (rahimahullaah) advice to his son manifested the great concern a father should have for his children.  Ustaadh Abu Idrees’s (may Allaah preserve him) lecture on the family focused greatly on the role of the parents in hastening to take the lead in obtaining the reward of Allaah in this dunyah and the aakhirah.  Ustaadh Amjad’s (may Allaah preserve him) lecture addressed different affairs of tarbiyah, especially the fact that we should occupy our children with the religion of Allaah.

Indeed they mentioned beneficial things related to the Aakhirah and the Dunyaa.  They mentioned ways and means of aiding our families in both their deen and dunyah affairs. They mentioned the true love and compassion we should nurture within our families and that we co-operate upon righteousness and piety.  They mentioned the harmful affairs our families may face and how to repel them.  And that we should lead by example.  May Allaah reward all the brothers for taking time out to advise us with beneficial affairs in this life and the next.  These lectures must be obtained and kept as a source of reminder.

And Allaah knows best

The Family: Those two tremendous lectures of Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah at the conference today!

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

Allaamah Abdullaah Bin Muhammad Bin Humayd (rahimahullaah) said: 

Therefore, it is incumbent upon a person to give serious concern to the children under his care because they are a trust.  And when you neglect them, then indeed you have betrayed the trust.  Allaah (The Most High) said:

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لَا تَخُونُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ وَتَخُونُوٓاْ أَمَـٰنَـٰتِكُمۡ وَأَنتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُونَ

‘’ O you who believe! Betray not Allah and His Messenger, nor betray knowingly your Amanat (things entrusted to you and all the duties which Allah has ordained for you).’’ [Soorah Anfaal: Ayah: 27]

Therefore, your children are a trust and when you neglect them, then indeed you have betrayed them.  It is obligatory upon every one of us to fear Allaah with regards to the (affair) of his children and those under his care.   The days go past and the end of a (person’s) life is close, and a person does not know when his life span will suddenly come to (an end).  He (the person) must strive to teach his children beneficial knowledge and that he gives them training upon goodness, and nurtures them upon obedience to (Allaah and His Messenger).

“All of you are shepherds and each of you is responsible for his flock.  A man is the shepherd of his household and he is responsible for them.  A woman is a shepherdess in her husband’s house and she is responsible for her flock.” [End of quote: Source– Al-Fataawaa Wad-Duroos Fil Masjid Al-Haraam: by Al-Allaamah Abdullaah Bin Muhammad Bin Humayd (rahimahullaah): pages: 938-944]

Brothers and sisters may Allaah protect us and our families from the trials and tribulations.  Indeed, the two lectures of Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah (may Allaah preserve him and his family) were a tremendous reminder.  Brothers and sisters! By Allaah we have a great responsibility in the sight of Allaah.  Our children are an amaanah.  Say to yourself with honesty: I never knew that I was falling short in such and such affair! And may Allaah reward the one who showed me my shortcomings in order that I may rectify myself.”

Brothers and sisters! Indeed, those two lectures, especially the last one today was filled with reality. O Allaah! Include us amongst those who accept advise and grant us tawfeeq to implement the advice of the good advisers.  Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi (may Allaah preserve him) said: ‘’Accepting advise and submitting to the truth is from the greatest obligations upon all the Muslims.’’

May Allaah reward Ustaadh Abu khadeejah and his family with abundant good in this life and the next.  Aameen.  Those two lectures must be obtained and played many times as a reminder.

And Allaah knows best

A Truly Memorable Sitting With Our French Brothers—Ustaadh Abu Idrees

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

Ustaadh Abu Idrees (may Allaah preserve him) wrote:

Just had an amazing sitting with the French brothers which went on to the early hours of the morning.  We discussed the affairs of the Dawah in UK, France & Belgium.  Sitting with our French brothers truly gave joy to the hearts & strengthened brotherhood.  We ask Allaah to keep us all united upon the Haqq & to strengthen the ranks of salafiyyah cross the globe….[end of quote: For further details, see link:  https://twitter.com/AbuIdrees/status/414948284273143808/photo/1

This is khayr, as Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) said: ”Sitting to give advice to one another opens up the door of benefit.”   [Siyar 15/91]
