No Disapproval In Issues of Khilaaf?!

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

There is no Inkaar [disapproval of one another] in those affairs about which the (scholars) hold differences of opinion!

Some people are under the illusion that what is intended by this statement is that it is not permissible to disapprove of (one another) with regards to any affair in which difference of opinion is held; so based upon this (illusion of theirs), it becomes impermissible to disapprove of a Munkar (an evil) unless there is complete agreement in doing so. This is a wrong understanding necessitating the closure of the door of enjoining good and forbidding evil. The scholars hold differences of opinion in most of the masaa’il and that which is correct with regards to this statement “Laa Inkaar Fee Masaa’il Al-Khilaaf” is that there should neither be harshness in disapproval nor reprimand with regards to those issues about which there is no manifest proof to be taken as the final (affair). And the basis upon which this is founded is that the issues of khilaaf are of two categories:

The First Category: They are those issues about which there is proof necessitating that it be taken as the final (decision); so here the proof must be taken and the other statement (opinion) in opposition is discarded. And whoever follows the statement (opinion) that is established to be in opposition to the proofs, then he is shown disapproval (i.e. clearly stated to him that what he holds is wrong without going into excess).

The Second Category: It is those issues of khilaaf about which the proof has not been manifested for it to be taken as the final (decision). It is an affair in which the evidences are either at contention or the views are at variance. This is an issue of ijtihaad, and there is neither disapproval nor reprimand against the one in opposition; rather advice is given for acquaintance with the statement (opinion) that carries more weight. This second category of (khilaaf) is what is intended by the statement Laa Inkaar Fee Masaa-il Al-Khilaaf), which some people have understood in an unrestrictive manner.

The Khilaaf of Ahlul Bidah

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al Madkhalee [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “We do not say that there are people of ijtihaad amongst ahlul bidah because they are followers of desires, and Allaah and His Messenger have testified to this. The misguided innovator stirs up discord and errs, and then says to you, ‘This is ijtihaad’. And when Hikmatiyaar and the misguided parties (in Afghanistaan) murdered Shaikh Jameel Ur-Rahmaan, they said, ‘This is ijtihaad’. Making lawful the spilling of the blood of the Salafis is ijtihaad to them! This is what it is, they (ahlul bidah) do not fall upon an affair of misguidance or a calamity except that they say, ‘This is ijtihaad’. This is a dilution of Islaam, mixing falsehood, misguidance and bidah with truth when the mistakes of the (real scholars of ijtihaad) for which they are rewarded are placed at the same level with religious innovation about which the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] has informed us that it leads to the fire”. [2]

Saying “I Don’t Understand” – Shaykh Uthaymeen

When an Aalim is asked a question it’s befitting that the student of knowledge attentively listens to him and correctly understands the answer. Some students, if they ask a question and are answered, you find him shy to say, “I don’t understand”.

That which is better for a student of knowledge if he doesn’t understand is to say “I don’t understand”, and he should say it respectfully and with good manner towards the scholar.

Oh Muslims, Give Concern and Time to Studying the Qurān – Al-Imām ibn Kathīr

Al-Imām ibn Kathīr quotes and says in his Tafsīr of the Qurān:

وَإِذۡ أَخَذَ ٱللَّهُ مِيثَـٰقَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ لَتُبَيِّنُنَّهُ ۥ لِلنَّاسِ وَلَا تَكۡتُمُونَهُ ۥ فَنَبَذُوهُ وَرَآءَ ظُهُورِهِمۡ وَٱشۡتَرَوۡاْ بِهِۦ ثَمَنً۬ا قَلِيلاً۬‌ۖ فَبِئۡسَ مَا يَشۡتَرُونَ (١٨٧)

(And remember) when Allāh took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) to make it (the news of the coming of Prophet Muhammad (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam)  and the religious knowledge) known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it, but they threw it away behind their backs, and purchased with it some miserable gain! And indeed worst is that which they bought. ((Aali Imrān:187)

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَشۡتَرُونَ بِعَهۡدِ ٱللَّهِ وَأَيۡمَـٰنِہِمۡ ثَمَنً۬ا قَلِيلاً أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ لَا خَلَـٰقَ لَهُمۡ فِى ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ وَلَا يُڪَلِّمُهُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَلَا يَنظُرُ إِلَيۡہِمۡ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ وَلَا يُزَڪِّيهِمۡ وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ۬ (٧٧)

Verily, those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allāh’s Covenant and their oaths, they shall have no portion in the Hereafter (Paradise). Neither will Allāh speak to them, nor look at them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify them, and they shall have a painful torment. (Aali Imrān: 77)

Allah has censured the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) due to their turning away and abandoning their revealed books; likewise they have been censured for devoting themselves (primarily) to (attaining the pleasures of) the worldly life and preoccupying themselves with other than what they have been commanded with – following the revelation (which was revealed to them).

So upon us, oh Muslims, is to refrain from those (aforementioned) affairs which caused Allāh to censure the People of the Book.

We should fulfil that which we have been commanded with. We should (pay attention and give concern to) studying the Book of Allāh, (which was revealed to us) teach it, understand it and teach its understanding (to others), Allāh said:

أَلَمْ يَأْنِ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَن تَخْشَعَ قُلُوبُهُمْ لِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَمَا نَزَلَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ وَلَا يَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِن قَبْلُ فَطَالَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْأَمَدُ فَقَسَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَكَثِيرٌ مِّنْهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ. (الحديد:١٦)

Has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh – Islamic Monotheism) to be affected by Allāh’s Reminder (this Quran), and that which has been revealed of the truth, lest they become as those who received the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah) and the Injīl (Gospel)] before (i.e. Jews and Christians), and the term was prolonged for them and so their hearts were hardened? And many of them were Fāsiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allāh). [Al-Hadīd:16]

Notification to the One Who Was Searching For an Explanation of ‘Manhajus Saalikeen’ In This Website

Assalaamu alaykum Warahmatullaah;

In the search section (in this website), we came across a search for Sharh of Manhajus Saalikeen. Here is a link https://archive.org/details/Bazmol_Moh with few audios (Explanation of Manhajus Saalikeen) by Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him). See audio numbers 85, 86, 87 and 88. Hope this would be helpful. May Allaah grant us and you beneficial knowledge, and righteous deeds.. Aameen.

Fajr Is Still Very Early! -[Fiqh Derived From a Hadeeth About Using An (Alarm) Clock to Help Us Wake Up etc]

It is reported in a hadeeth in Muwatta Imaam Maalik that the Messenger (sallal laahu alayhi wasallam) travelled by night on the way back from khaybar and towards the end of the night he stopped for a rest and said to Bilaal (radiyallaahu-anhu), “(Stay awake) to watch out for the morning (prayer) for us…..’’ [Ref 1]

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool  (may Allaah preserve him) said, “What is the evidence behind the permissibility for a person -before he (or she) sleeps- to watch out for the time by way of (an alarm) clock in order to be notified of (the time of the Salaah)? The evidence is that the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) sought from Bilaal (radiyallaahu-anhu) to guard the time for them, saying,”(Stay awake) to watch out for the morning (prayer) for us”. [Ref 2]

[Ref 1: See complete hadeeth in ‘Muwatta Imaam Maalik- Hadeeth Number 25 under section (The Times of Prayer)]

[Ref 2: Sharh Woqootis Salaah Min Muwatta Al-Imaam Maalik Bin Anas’ page 111. Publisher: Daarul Istiqaamah. 1st Ed. 1429 (Year 2008). Abridged and paraphrased]


Ruling on following the legislated concessions – Shaykh Fawzaan

Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan was asked about those who follow the legislated Islamic concessions?

The religion is an amaanah- an amaanah between the slave and his Lord. It’s obligatory that he performs it (the religious duties) as Allah and his messenger have commanded. Whoever performs the obligations, leaves off the prohibited affairs, (does) that which he is able from the mustahabbaat (recommended actions) and abandons the makroohaat (disliked affairs), this is the amaanah between the slave and his lord.

The concessions are only allowed when there is a need and necessity (to utilize) them. Utilize them in accordance with necessity- with a need for the concession. Just like the sick person combines between two prayers, performs tayyamum if he cannot use water for purification and doesn’t fast in Ramadhaan, and a traveller shortens the prayers- this is a religious concession used at the time of its requirement.

As for using concessions in other than their correct place,(i.e. situation) then this is not permissible. Allah did not permit that for him (in such situation). Indeed He (Allaah) only placed the concessions at specified times and situations, and they are not used in other than these (times and situations).  Therefore it is obligated on the Muslim that he fears Allah and that he establishes that which Allah has obligated on him. [Abridged]
