A Brief Reminder Regarding The Internet

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

Question to Shaikh Firkoos [may Allaah preserve him]:

It is permissible to install the internet in one’s house?

The Shaikh [may Allaah preserve him] stated: The internet is from those Wasaa’il [i.e. means] that take the same ruling as their aims. And its distinction from the television is that it is controlled based on choice, with the possibility of using a program that can prevent one from accessing sites of corruption and that which corrupts [people]. The internet is not like television because TV programs are imposed and based on a deliberate action plan- and the entire program is not without a call to debauchery, moral decadence and evil manners; [وَاللهُ لاَ يُحِبُّ الفَسَادَ – And Allaah does not like corruption]. [Surah Al-Baqarah’ Aayah 205]

Therefore, the means leading to the best aim is the best means, and the most repugnant aim is connected to the most repugnant means, and there is that which is in between the two. And what remains regarding this affair is the strength of a person’s Eemaan, steadfastness and truthful determination. So, if he is strong in utilising the internet in good, then it is good; but if he fears for the weakness of his Eemaan and [fears] falling into that which Allaah is not pleased with, then he leaves it for the sake of Allaah. [وَمَنْ تَرَكَ شَيْئًا للهِ عَوَّضَهُ اللهُ خَيْرًا مِنْهُ -whoever abandons something for the sake of Allaah, Allaah will replace it for him with something better]. [Abridged and paraphrased.

Allah will Ask Him on The Day of Resurrection – Shaykh Uthaymeen

Oh people! Indeed many of the common people give fatawa to one another without any knowledge. So you find them saying “this is halal, or this is haraam, or this is waajib” etc And he knows (nothing) about these affairs. Does this man not know that Allah will ask him about what he said on the Day of Resurrection?!

Does he not know that if he misguided an individual – that if he made permissible that which Allah has made haraam or made haraam that which Allah has made halal for the person – then he is the cause for that persons sins.

And does he not know that he will have the like of those sins for those actions which were caused by his fataawa?!

The Committee of Major Scholars On Imaam Albaanee

The man is known to us to (possess) knowledge and virtue, exalting the Sunnah and giving service to it, and aiding the Madhab of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa-ah in warning against bigoted partisanship and blind following, and his books are beneficial. However, he is just like others amongst the scholars, he is not infallible; he is correct (at times) and mistaken (at times) and we hope for him two rewards in what he is correct and one reward in what he is mistaken, as established from the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) that he said:

“When a haakim (i.e. a judge or scholar who has reached the station in knowledge making him qualified to perform Ijtihaad) strives to make a ruling and is correct, he receives two rewards, and if he makes a wrong ruling he receives one reward.’


[Fatwa Lajna Daa-ima 12/324-325: Shaikh Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq Al-Afeefee,Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Ghudiyaan and Shaikh Abdullaah Bin Qu’ood]

What if he finds out that he did not pray towards the Qibla?

Question:

What is the ruling, if after the prayer it becomes clear that it was prayed towards other than the direction of the Qiblah; does it make any difference if this (happened) in a Muslim land or a kaafir land or in the wilderness?

 

Answer:

If a Muslim is on a journey or in a land in which it is not easy to find someone to show him the Qiblah, then his prayer is correct even after it becomes clear to him that he did not pray towards the Qibla. But if he was in a Muslim land, his prayer is not correct, because he is able to ask someone to show him the direction of the Qibla, just as he is able to know the direction of the Qibla via the mosques.

The Mufti, Shaykh Ghudyaan, Shaykh Fawzaan and Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd on grave mistakes of Halabi

 

Fatwa no. 21517

Q: Some people ask about the two books entitled “Al-tahdhir min Fitnat Al-takfir (the Warning Against the trial of Pronouncing Disbelief)” and “Sayhat Nadhir (the Cry of the Warner)” compiled by `Aly Hasan Al-Halaby The two books call to the Madh-hab (school of jurisprudence) of Irja’, which holds that actions are not a fundamental condition upon which the soundness of Iman (Faith) depends, and relate this opinion to Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream). The author based the two books on distorted transmissions from the Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyyah Al-Hafizh Ibn Kathir, and others (may Allah be merciful with them all). The advisors hope to see clarifications of the material of the books so that readers will be able to differentiate between truth and falsehood.

A: After studying the two books, the Committee found that the book entitled Al-Tahdhir min Fitnat Al-Takfir, compiled by `Aly Hasan Al-Halaby where he added to the sayings of scholars in the introduction and commentaries, includes the following:

1. The author based the book on the invalid and innovated Madh-hab of Al-Murji’ah (a deviant Islamic sect), who limit Kufr (disbelief) to denial, rejection, conscious Istihlal (believing that what is prohibited is to be made lawful) as seen on page 6, commentary 2, and also page 22. This opinion opposes that of Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah who believe that doctrinal disbelief, actions, statements, and/or doubt entail Kufr.

2. The author distorted facts when transmitting from Ibn Kathir (may Allah be merciful with him) from Al-Bidayah wal Nihayah 13/118, where he stated in his commentary in page 15 – as cited

(Part No. 2; Page No. 138)

from Ibn Kathir: “Verily, Genghis Khan claimed that Al-Yasiq was revealed by Allah and that is why they were regarded as Kafirs (disbelievers).” When referring to the stated page, the saying claimed to be Ibn Kathir’s (may Allah be merciful with him) was not found.

3. He fabricated lies against the Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah be merciful with him) in pages 17-18, where he falsely related to him the claim that ruling by other than what Allah has revealed was not considered Kufr by Shaykh-ul-Islam unless it is done out of knowledge, belief, and Istihlal. This is sheer fabrication against the Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy on him), who promoted the Madh-hab of the Salaf (righteous predecessors), Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah, which is already mentioned; however, this is the Math-hab of Al-Murji’ah.

4. He fabricated the meaning intended by the knowledgeable Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim (may Allah be merciful with him) in his treatise “Tahkim Al-Qawanin Al-Wad`iyyah” (Seeking the Rulings of Man-made Laws), as he falsely claimed that the Sheikh considers conscious Istihlal a condition for Kufr, although the statements of the Sheikh plainly indicate that he followed the opinion of Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah.

5. He commented on the statements of the people of knowledge and implied that these statements mean what they do not mean, as in page 108, commentary 1; page 109,

(Part No. 2; Page No. 139)

commentary 21; and page 110, commentary 2.

6. The book also lessens the sin of ruling by other than what Allah has revealed, particularly on page 5, commentary 1, claiming that paying special attention to enforcing Tawhid (belief in the Oneness of Allah) in this area is considered an imitation of the Rafidah (a Shi`ah group denying the caliphates of Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq and `Umar ibn Al-Khattab and making accusations against them and many other Companions of the Prophet), and this is a grave mistake.

7. On examining the second book entitled “Sayhat Nadhir”, the Committee found that it is a supporting tool for the contents of the first book. Accordingly, the Permanent Committee believes that it is not permissible to print, publish, or distribute the two books because of the falsehood and fabrications they contain. We advise the author to fear Allah for himself and for Muslims, especially the youth, and endeavor to acquire knowledge of the Shari`ah (Islamic law) at the hands of scholars trusted for their knowledge and beliefs. Knowledge is a trust which should not be spread unless it is in accordance with the Qur’an and the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet). The author must renounce these opinions and highly shameful approaches in distorting the statements of the people of knowledge. It is known that returning to the truth is a virtue and a cause of dignity for Muslims.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
