  1. Implementing the Islamic Shariah (Sharia law) 1. What is the Islamic Shariah? The Islamic Shariah is the Islamic law which applies to all aspects of the life of a Muslim. The Shariah includes all aspects of life, from daily activities, ibadah (worship), criminal law and everything else. It is obligatory on every Muslim to respect and follow the Islamic Shariah in every aspect of their life. It is also obligatory on Muslim nations to implement the Islamic Shariah, and make it the source of all law and legislation. 2. What are the sources of the Shariah? The main sources of Shariah as explained by the scholars are the following: The Holy Qur'an The Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) The ijma' (consensus) of Islamic scholars The ijtihad (opinion of the Islamic scholars based on their knowledge and research) For a Muslim, all matters, laws and legislation must be according to the Islamic Shariah to be acceptable. The previously mentioned sources of the Shariah must be used in the order they were given. A verdict on any issue is first researched in the holy Qur'an, then the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). If no verdict can be found in these two sources, then the scholars of Islam must look at the issue, research and study it, and come up with a suitable verdict. Islamic scholars have their own scientific methods that they follow in order to extract a verdict. This science is called usool al fiqh, and is a very large subject that can be studied in hundreds of Islamic books. 3. Why should Muslims implement the Islamic Shariah in their lives? The Islamic Shariah represents the will of Allah (swt) and His messenger Mohammad (pbuh). As Muslims, we must go about all matters according to the will of Allah (swt). In the holy Qur'an, Allah (swt) has revealed to humanity many verdicts and solutions to many of the problems faced by us. In order to be a true beleiver in Allah (swt), and in order to worship Allah (swt) only, we must follow the guidance of Allah (swt). The holy Qur'an also instructs us to follow the messenger of Allah (swt), prophet Mohammad (pbuh). There are many ayat to this effect, which are discussed under a separate article. Therefore, the will of Allah (swt) is for us to worship Him by following His guidance as revealed in the holy Qur'an and in the Sunnah of prophet Mohammad (pbuh). Finally, there are many issues that are not covered by the holy Qur'an and the Sunnah. However, the Qur'an and the Sunnah provide the necessary guidelines to allow Muslims to come up with proper verdicts for any and all issues. Therefore, when a verdict about a certain issue is not found in the Qur'an or the Sunnah, the scholars of Islam research this issue and come up with the best possible verdict to make the life of Muslims easier and keeping in mind the best interest of the Islamic Ummah. Therefore, all Muslims should live their lives according to the Islamic Shariah. Muslim nations should strive to implement the Islamic Shariah in all matters. All laws, legislation, trade, politics and all other matters should be conducted according to the Shariah. Many nations today rely in their so called "constitutions" on foreign systems of law. Many nations where the majority of inhabitants are Muslims derive their law from western systems of law, such as French or British law. This includes all matters including criminal law and even family law! How can we continue to abandon the law of Allah (swt) and rely on the man made law? Implementing the Islamic Shariah (Sharia law) 4. What is the evidence that we must follow Shariah from the Holy Qur'an? First of all, it should be very clear to anyone that since Allah (swt) has revealed the holy Qur'an, and has sent prophet Mohammad (pbuh) and ordered us to follow him, then obviously Allah (swt) expects us to follow this guidance. However, in addition to this, Allah (swt) has revealed the following ayat: “And whoever does not judge by what Allah revealed, then they are Kafirun. Surat Al-Maidah, Ayah 44 “And this (He commands): Judge thou between them by what Allah has revealed and follow not their vain desires but beware of them lest they beguile you from any of that (teaching) which Allah has sent down to you. And if they turn away be assured that for some of their crimes it is Allah's purpose to punish them. And truly most men are rebellious. Surat Al-Maidah, Ayah 49 “Do they then seek after a judgment of (the Days of) Ignorance? But who for a people whose faith is assured can give better judgment than Allah Surat Al-Maidah, Ayah 50 These verses clearly show that it is an obligation on all Muslims to believe in, implement and follow the Islamic Shariah in all matters in their lives. 5. What about non-Muslims living in a Muslim nation? From the same ayat quoted above (ayat 40 - 50 of surat Al-Maidah), we find that non-Muslims can practice and implement their own system of law within a Muslim society. Islamic Shariah law is not to be implemented or forced upon non-Muslims. May Allah (swt) guide us all.
  2. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم JESUS in the QURAN The Islamic view of Jesus lies between two extremes. The Jews , who rejected Jesus as a Prophet of God, called him an impostor. The Christians, on the other hand, considered him to be the son of God and worship him as such. Islam considers Jesus to be one of the great prophets of God and respects him as much as Ibrahim (Abraham), Moses, and Mohammed. (Peace Be Upon Them) This is conformity with the Islamic view of the oneness of God, the oneness of Divine guidance, and the complementary role of the subsequent mission of God's messengers. The essence of Islam - willing submission to the will of God - was revealed to Adam, who was passed it on to his children. All following revelations to Noah, Ibrahim, Moses, Jesus, and finally Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Them) were conformity with that message, with some elaboration to define the revelation between man and God, man and man, man and instructions. Thus, any contradictions among revealed religions is viewed by Islam as a man-made element introduced into these religions. The position of Jesus in the three major religions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - should not be an exception. Although the Quran does not present a detailed life-story of Jesus, it highlights the important aspects of his birth, his mission, his ascension to heaven, and passes judgements on the Christian beliefs concerning him. The Quranic account of Jesus starts with the conception of his mother, Mary, whose mother, the wife of Imran, vowed to dedicate her child to the service of God in the temple. When Mary became a woman, the Holy Spirit (the Archangel Gabriel) appeared to her as a man bringing her news of a son. We read the following dialogue in the Quran between Mary and the Angel: "When the angel said, "Mary, god gives you a good tidings of a Word from Him whose name is messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, -high honoured shall he be in this world and the next, near stationed to God. He shall speak to men in the cradle, and of age, and righteous he shall be, "lord" said Mary "How shall I have a son, seeing no mortal has touched me? "Even so, he said "God creates what He will". When he decrees a thing He but say to it, "Be", and it is. (Al-Imran 3:45-47) In a chapter (Surah) entitled "Maryam" (Mary), the Quran tells us how Mary gave birth to her son, and how the Jesus accused her when she brought the child home: "Then she brought the child to her folk, carrying him, and they said, "Mary, you have surely committed a monstrous thing. Sister of Aaron, your father was not a wicked man, nor your mother a woman unchaste. Mary pointed to the child; but they said, 'Hoe shall we speak to one who still in the cradle, a little child. And he said, 'Lo, I am God's servant, God has given me the Book and made me a Prophet Blessed He has made me ,wherever/may be; and hi has enjoined me to prayer, and to give the alms so long as I live, and likewise to cherish my mother; He has not made me arrogant and wicked. Peace be upon me, the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I am raised up a live. "Maryam 19:29-33) in the same chapter, following the above quotation, God assures Mohammed (PBUH) and through him the whole world, that what is told above is the TRUTH about Jesus (PBUH), although Christians might not accept it. Jesus is NOT the son of God: He was obviously enough, the son of Mary. The verses continue: "That is Jesus, son of Mary, in word of truth, concerning which they are doubting. It is not for God to take a son unto Him. Glory be to Him, He nut says to it, 'Be, and it is. (Maryam 19:34-35) After this strong statement about the nature of Jesus, God directed Mohammed (PBUH) to call the Christians to worship the one God: "Surely God is my God, and your God, so surely serve him. This is the straight path". (Maryam 19:36) The rejection of the very idea of God having a son is restated later in the same chapter with even stronger words: "And they say, The All-merciful has taken unto Himself a son. You have indeed advanced something hideous. As if the skies are about to burst, the earth to split asunder and its mountain to fall down in the utter ruin for that they have attributed to the All-merciful a son; and behaves not the All-merciful to take a son. None there in the heavens and earth but comes to the All-merciful as a servant" (Maryam 19:88-93) The Quran recognizes the fact that Jesus had no human father, but this does not make him the son of God, or God himself. By this criterion, Adam would have been more entitled more entitled to be the son of God, because he had neither a father nor a mother, so the Quran draws attention to the miraculous creation of both in the following verses; " truly the likeness of Jesus, in God's sight is as Adam's likeness; He created him of dust, then He said upon him, 'Be' and hi was. (Al-Imran 3:59) The Quran rejects the concept of Trinity God the Father, God the son, God the Holy Spirit - as strongly as it rejects the concept of Jesus as the son of God. This is because GOD IS ONE. Three cannot be one. The Quran addresses Christians in the following verses from the Surrah entitled "An-Nisaa" (The Women) People of the Book, do not go beyond the bounds in your religion, and say nought as to God but the Truth. The messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was only the messenger of God, and his word (Fulfilment of his word (Fulfilment of His command, through the word "Be", for the creation of Jesus) that he committed to Mary, and a spirit originating from Him (was given life by God). So believe in God and His Messengers, and say not 'Three'. Refrain, better is for you. God is only one God. Glory be to him-that He should have a son! To Him belongs all that is in the Heavens and in the Earth; God suffices for a guardian. The Messiah will not disdain to be a servant of God, neither the Angels who are close to Him. Whosoever disdains to serve Him and walks proud, He will assuredly muster them to Him, all of them. As for the believers, who do deeds of righteousness, we will pay them their rewards in full, and He will give them more, of His bounty; as for them who disdain and walks proud, then He will punish with a severe punishment, and they shall not find for them, apart from God, a friend or helper." (An-Nissa 4:171-173) The denial of Jesus's divinity (and. For the matter, of Mary's divinity) is presented in the Quran in the form of a dialogue, at the Day of Judgement, between the Almighty Jesus. All the Messengers and their nations will gather before God and He will ask the Messengers how they were received by their people and what they said to them. Among those who will be questioned is Jesus: "And when God said, 'O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say unto men, "Take me and my mother as gods, apart from God"? He said, 'To you be glory! It is not mine to say what I have no right to. If I indeed said it, you would have known it, knowing what is within my heart, though I do not know your knowledge; you know the things unseen. I only said to them what you did commands me: "Serve God, my God and your God." (Al-Maida 5-116) Given that the Quran denies the Trinity and the son ship of Jesus, what, according to the Quran, was the real mission of Jesus? The answer is that Jesus was a link in a long chain of Prophets and Messengers sent by God to various nations and societies whenever they needed guidance or deviated from his teachings of Moses and other Messengers. As he was miraculously supported by numerous miracles to prove that he was a Messengers from God. However, the majority of the Jews rejected his ministry. In another verse of the Quran, Jesus confirmed the validity of the Torah which was revealed to Moses, and also conveyed he glad tidings of a final Messenger who follow him: "And when Jesus son of Mary said, 'Children of israel, I am indeed the Messenger to you, confirming the Torah that is before me, and giving good tiding of a Messenger who shall be the praised one."(As-Saff 61:6) Note that "praised one" is a translation of "Ahmad" - The Prophet Mohammed's name. Careful study of the New Testament shows that Jesus refers to the same Prophet in John 14:16-17: "And I will give you another Counsellor (ThProphet Mohammed). To be with you for ever, even the Spirit of Truth." The usual explanation of this Prophecy is that the counsellor referred to is the Holy Spirit, but this explanation is excluded by a previous verse in John: "Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counsellor will not come to you." The characteristics of this counsellor, as can be derived from the prophecy, are that he will stay forever with the believers, he will glorify Jesus; and he will speak that he hears form God. All four characteristics apply to the Prophet Mohammed. He came six centuries after Jesus. He came six centuries after Jesus. He came with a universal and everlasting message, fulfilling the prophecy that the counsellor will stay forever with the faithful. He glorified Jesus as a great Prophet. The Quran attributes to Jesus miracles not mentioned in the Bible's Old and New Testaments, as well as specific verses in the Quran show how the Prophet Mohammad is rejected by Jews and Christians out of prejudice and misunderstanding, rather that carefully study the Bible. It is a sad fact of history that not many are following the "straight path" to which people were called by Jesus. He was only followed by a few disciples inspired by God to support him. The non-believers plotted - as they would against Mohammed, six centuries later - to kill Jesus. But God had better plan for him and his followers, as the Quran tells us: "And when Jesus perceived their unbelief, he said 'Who will be my helpers in the cause of God? The apostles said, 'we are Gods helpers. We believe in God; so bear witness of our submission God, we believe in that you have sent down, and we follow the Messenger. Inscribe us therefore with those who bear witness. 'And they devised, and God devised, and God devised, and God is the best of divisors. When God said, 'Jesus, I will take you to Me and will raise you to Me, and I will purify you (of the falsehoods) of those who do not believe. I will make your followers above the unbelievers till the Resurrection Day."(Al-Imran 3:52-55) As the above verses indicate, Jesus was taken and raised to heaven. He was not crucified. It was certainly the plan of the enemies of Jesus to put him to death on the cross, but God saved him and someone else was crucified: "And for their unbelief, and their uttering against Mary a grave false charge, and for their saying, 'We killed the messiah, Jesus son of Mary, the Messiah of God"…yet they did not slay him, neither crucified him, only a likeness of that was shown to them. Those who are at variance concerning him are surely in doubt the following of conjecture; and they did not kill him of certainty…no indeed; God raised him up to Him; God is Almighty, Allwise. There is not one of the people of the book but will assuredly believe him before his death, and on the Resurrection Day he will be a witness against them." (An-Nissa 4:156-159) The Quran does not explain who was the person crucified instead of Jesus, nor elaborate on the Second Coming of Jesus. However, explanators of the Quran have always interpreted the last verse of the above quotation to mean that Jesus will believe in him before he dies. This understanding is supported by authentic sayings (Hadith) of the Prophet Mohammed may the peace and blessings of Allah him and upon all His Messengers.
  3. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم People of The Book" & The Muslims The Natural Alliance Between Christianity, Judaism and Islam HARUN YAHYA Islam is a religion of peace, love and tolerance. Today, however, some circles have been presenting a false image of Islam, as if there were conflict between Islam and the adherents of the two other monotheistic religions. Yet Islam's view of Jews and Christians, who are named "the People of the Book" in the Koran, is very friendly and tolerant. This attitude towards the People of the Book developed during the years of the birth of Islam. At that time, Muslims were a minority, struggling to protect their faith and suffering oppression and torture from the pagans of the city of Mecca. Due to this persecution, some Muslims decided to flee Mecca and shelter in a safe country with a just ruler. The Prophet Muhammad told them to take refuge with King Negus, the Christian king of Ethiopia. The Muslims who followed this advice found a very fair administration that embraced them with love and respect when they went to Ethiopia. King Negus refused the demands of the pagan messengers who asked him to surrender the Muslims to them, and announced that Muslims could live freely in his country. Such attitudes of Christian people that are based on the concepts of compassion, mercy, modesty and justice, constitute a fact that God has pointed out in the Koran. A verse of the Koran states: … You will find the people most affectionate to those who believe are those who say, 'We are Christians.' That is because some of them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant. (Surat al-Ma'ida, 82) The Common Beliefs and Values of the People of the Book with Muslims Christian and Muslim belief have many aspects in common. Judaism too shares many beliefs with Islam. All true adherents of these three great religions: believe that God has created the entire universe out of nothing and that He dominates all that exists with His omnipotence. believe that God has created man and living things in a miraculous way and that man possesses a soul granted him by God. believe that besides Jesus, Moses or Muhammad, God sent many prophets such as Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Joseph throughout history, and they love all these prophets. believe in resurrection, Heaven and Hell and angels, and that God has created our lives with a certain destiny. The beliefs of the People of the Book are in harmony with Muslims, not only in terms of faith-related issues, but also of moral values. Today, in a world where such immoralities as adultery, homosexuality, drug addiction and a model of egoism and self-seeking cruelty have grown widespread, the People of the Book and Muslims share the same virtues: Honor, chastity, humility, self-sacrifice, honesty, compassion, mercy and unconditional love… According To The Koran, Muslims, Jews And Christians Should Live In Friendship It is evident there are ample grounds for an alliance between the "People of the Book" and Muslims. This is also very evident in the Koran. In the relevant verses of the Koran, there is a significant difference between the People of the Book and the idolaters. This is especially emphasized in the area of social life. For example, it is said concerning the idolaters: "(they) are unclean, so after this year they should not come near the Masjid al-Haram (Kaaba)." (Surat at-Tawba: 28) Idolaters are people who obey no divine law, have no moral precepts and who are capable of committing every kind of degrading and perverse action without hesitation. But while they basically rely on God's revelation, the People of the Book have moral precepts and know what is lawful and what is not. For this reason, if one of the People of the Book cooks some food, it is lawful for Muslims to eat it. In the same way, permission has been given for a Muslim man to marry a woman from among the People of the Book. On this subject God commands: Today all good things have been made lawful for you. And the food of those given the Book is also lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. So are chaste women from among the believers and chaste women of those given the Book before you, once you have given them their dowries in marriage, not in fornication or taking them as lovers. But as for anyone who disbelieve, his actions will come to nothing and in the hereafter he will be among the losers. (Surat al-Mai'da: 5) These commands show that bonds of kinship may be established as a result of the marriage of a Muslim with a woman from the People of the Book, and that those on each side of the union can accept an invitation to a meal. These are the fundamentals that will ensure the establishment of equitable human relationships and a happy communal life. Since the Koran enjoins this equitable and tolerant attitude, it is unthinkable that a Muslim could take an opposing view. Monasteries, Churches And Synagogues Should Be Respected Another important fact we learn from the Koran is that Muslims must respect Jewish and Christian places of worship. In the Koran, the places of worship of the People of the Book, i.e. monasteries, churches and synagogues, are mentioned as places of worship protected by God. …if God had not driven some people back by means of others, monasteries, churches, synagogues and Masjids, where God's name is mentioned much, would have been pulled down and destroyed. God will certainly help those who help Him - God is All-Strong, Almighty. (Surat al-Hajj: 40 ) This verse shows all Muslims the importance of respecting and protecting the sanctuaries of Christians and Jews. Indeed, in the Koran God commands Muslims not to harbor any enmity towards any people. In many verses, friendship is recommended, even with idolaters. God even refers to the idolaters at war with Muslims in this way: "If any of the idolaters ask you for protection, give them protection until they have heard the words of God. Then convey them to a place where they are safe." (Surat at-Tawba: 6) Jews and Christians, however, are much closer to Muslims than idolaters. Each of these religions has its book, that is, they are subject to a revelation sent down by God. They know what is right and what is wrong, what is lawful and what is unlawful. They know they will give an account to God, and they love and revere His prophets. This shows that Muslims and the people of the book can live easily together and cooperate. The Common Enemies of the Faith Another important fact that draws Christianity, Judaism and Islam together is the atheist philosophies that are so influential in our time. Among the best-known and most harmful philosophies of our age can be cited materialism, communism, fascism, anarchism, racism and secular humanism. Many people who believed in the fake diagnoses, deceptive descriptions and explanations of these ideas on the universe, society and man, have lost their faith or doubted it. What is more, these ideologies have dragged people, societies and nations into great crises, conflicts and wars. Their share of the blame for the pain and troubles that humanity suffers today is immense. While they deny God and creation, all the above-mentioned ideologies are based on a common framework, a so-called scientific basis; Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. Darwinism constitutes the basis of atheist philosophies. This theory claims that living beings have evolved as a result of coincidences and by means of a struggle for life. Therefore, Darwinism sends this deceptive message to people: "You are not responsible to anyone, you owe your life to coincidences, you need to struggle, and if necessary to oppress others to succeed. This world is one of conflict and self-interest". This evil morality advises people to be egoistical, self-seeking, cruel and oppressive. It destroys such virtues as mercy, compassion, self-sacrifice and humility, the moral values of the three great monotheistic religions. This being the case, it is necessary for the people of the Book and Muslims to cooperate, since they believe in God and accept the morality that He teaches. The followers of these three religions should expose to the world the fallacy of Darwinism, which has no scientific basis, but which is trying to be preserved for the sake of materialist philosophy. They should cooperatively carry out an intellectual struggle against all other deceptive ideas that serve atheism. Once this is realized, the world will, in a very short time, embrace peace, tranquility and justice. Conclusion: "Let us Rally to a Common Formula" At a time when anti-religious, atheist and materialist ideologies surround the world, similarities among theistic religions should be emphasized, and cooperation should be established for common aims. Concerning the People of the Book, God gives Muslims a command in the Koran; to rally to a common formula: O People of the Book! Let us rally to a common formula to be binding on both us and you: That we worship none but God; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than God. (Surat Al 'Imran, 64) This is indeed our call to Christians and Jews: As people who believe in God and follow His revelations, let us rally to a common formula - "faith". Let's love God, Who is our Creator and Lord, and follow His commands. And let us pray God to lead us to an even straighter path. When Muslims, Christians and Jews rally to a common formula this way; When they understand that they are friends not enemies, When they see that the real enemy is atheism and paganism, then the world will become a very different place. The fighting that has raged for ages, enmities, fears - and terrorist attacks - will come to an end, and a new civilization based on love, respect and peace will be established upon this "common formula".
  4. Seriously, Isn't The Source Of The Qur'an In Doubt?

    Miracles Proves nothing mate , and thats according to Jesus from the very verse you quoted of false prophets in where he states that the false prophets can perform miracles :) , so if false prophets can perform miracles then what does it count ? . However if you see the Holy Quran you see the greatest miracle of ultimate perfection , and not like the earthly man made bible.
  5. Sufism And Salafism: The Grand Deception

    :sl: IF does not allow discussions of different sects in Islam. This complex issue will require more than ordinary Muslim's knowledge to engage into various theological differences and interpretations of Islam. All Muslims should make Quran and Sunnah their only source of guidance. Therefore, we advise everyone to stay away from all sects. Please read about them in our 'Avoid All Sects and Cults' forum, here: http://forums.gawaher.com/index.php?showforum=163 This topic is now closed.

  8. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Ahul l-Bayt ( آل البيت) Question: a brother asked my about who exactly are the ahl bait, because all he knows is that when he hears ahl al-bayt, he thinks the 12 imams. is it just from Fatimah, or more than just from her...like Ibn Abbas? Note to begin that Ahl and Al are the same in meaning. However, Ibn Manzur said in Lisan al-`arab, Al is nobler in usage. Note that in Arabic a man's "bayt" denotes his wife, and that is also one of the meanings of a man's "ahl." See Lisan al-`arab under both entries, where it is also said that "Al" means "ahl" in all the senses of "family," relatives," and "wives." The following terms all have the same meaning: a) Ahl al-Bayt = People of the House B ) Al al-Nabi SAWS = Family of the Prophet; the Umma c) Al Bayt al-Nabi SAWS = Family of the House of the Prophet d) `Itrat al-Nabi = [People of the] Mantle of the Prophet However, in common usage, (a) and (d) have a more restrictive meaning, coinciding with (I) below, whereas (B ) and © is more inclusive, usually coincide with (I), (II), and (III). The term "Al" (B ) is the most inclusive of all, since Nawawi reports among its meanings: "All of the Community." See his Tahdhib al-asma' wa al-lughat as well as his Tahrir al-tanbih under the entry "Al." The People of the House of the Prophet are those for whom it is unlawful to receive zakat and whom the Prophet ordered all Muslims to respect, honor, and follow. They are: I. `Ali, Fatima, Hasan, and Husayn (in addition to their descendants: Muhassan, Zaynab, and Umm Kulthum [other children of `Ali and Fatima]; among the children of al-Hasan: Zayd, al-Qasim, Abu Bakr, `Abd Allah, `Umar, al-Hasan, `Abd al-Rahman, al-Husayn, `Amr, Muhammad, Ya`qub, Ja`far, Hamza, and Talha; among the children of al-Husayn: Abu Bakr, `Abd Allah, `Ali al-Kabir, `Ali Zayn al-`Abidin, `Umar, Fatima, Sukayna, Zaynab al-Sughra, and Umm Kulthum al-Sughra). II. The wives of the Prophet [except that zakat is lawful for them by consensus, as reported by Ibn Hajar in Fath al-Bari (3:277) from Ibn Battal]: 1. Khadija bint Khuwaylid. She gave birth to: al-Qasim, `Abd Allah, Zaynab, Fatima al-Zahra', Ruqiyya, & Umm Kulthum. 2. Sawda bint Zam`a 3. `A'isha bint al-Siddiq 4. Hafsa bint `Umar 5. Zaynab bint Khuzayma 6. Umm Salama, Hind bint Umayya 7. Zaynab bint Jahsh 8. Juwayriyya bint al-Harith 9. Safiyya bint Huyayy 10. Umm Habiba bint Abi Sufyan 11. Maymuna bint al-Harith 12. Marya al-Qibtiyya, she was a surriyya (concubine). She gave birth to Ibrahim. III. The Banu Hashim and the Banu al-Muttalib. [Except that zakat may be given to the wives of the Banu Hashim and to the freedmen of Banu al-Muttalib, by consensus as stated by Ibn Battal: related by Shawkani in Nayl al-awtar (4:175) and by Nawawi in Sharh Sahih Muslim (5:36).] Allah said of the People of the House: "Allah's wish is but to remove uncleanness far from you, O Folk of the Household, and cleanse you with a thorough cleansing." (33:33) Umm Salama related that when that verse was revealed, the Prophet surrounded with his garment `Ali, Fatima, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn, and said: "O Allah! These are the People of my House, therefore remove uncleanness far from them and cleanse them with a thorough cleansing." Ahmad narrated it in his Musnad with six chains, also Tirmidhi with several chains and he said: hasan sahih, al-Hakim, and Tabarani. Muslim, Tirmidhi (hasan sahih gharib), al-Hakim, and others also narrated that when Allah revealed the verse: "... say (unto him): Come! We will summon our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and ourselves and yourselves, then we will pray humbly (to our Lord) and (solemnly) invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie" (3:61) Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas said: the Prophet summoned `Ali, Fatima, Hasan, and Husayn, and said: "O Allah! These are my Family" (allahumma ha'ula'u ahli). Allah has given the People of the House the right to (fay') and (khumus) when He said: "That which Allah giveth as spoil unto His messenger from the people of the townships, it is for Allah and His messenger and for the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer..." (59:7) "And know that whatever ye take as spoils of war, lo! a fifth thereof is for Allah, and for the messenger and for the kinsman (who hath need) and orphans and the needy and the wayfarer" (8:41) The Prophet said: "I am leaving among you the two weighty matters: Allah's Book and the People of my House." Narrated by Muslim, Tirmidhi, and Ahmad through many chains. Some of these narrations state: "I am leaving among you the two weighty matters: Allah's Book and (the People of) my mantle: these two shall never part ways until they come to me at the Pond. Therefore attend to how you act with them after me." The dictionary Mu`jam maqayis al-lugha (4:217) defines a man's `itra (mantle) as: "His relatives such as his children, grandchildren, and paternal cousins." From Hasan ibn `Ali, Umm Kulthum daughter of `Ali, and others: "Sadaqa is not lawful for the family of Muhammad." Bukhari in the book of zakat, Ahmad through five chains and al-Darimi in his Sunan, book of Salat. Ahmad in his Musnad and Muslim in his Sahih narrated from Zayd ibn Arqam, also al-Hakim, Ibn Hibban, al-Darimi, al-Bazzar, and al-Tabarani: The Messenger of Allah stood to speak to us beside a pond which is known as Khum, located between Mecca and Medina. He praised Allah and admonished us to remember Him, then said: "O people! I am a human being and the time is near when my Lord's Messenger shall come to me (with death) and I shall answer him. Behold! I am leaving among you two weighty matters. The first of them is the Book of Allah, in which is the guidance and the light... And the People of my House. I remind you by Allah of the People of my House! I remind you by Allah of the People of my House! I remind you by Allah of the People of my House!" Huswayn ibn Sabra said to Zayd: "Who are the People of his House, O Zayd? Are not his wives among the People of his House?" Zayd replied: "His wives are the People of his House, however, the People of his House are those for whom sadaqa is unlawful after the Prophet." Huswayn said: "And who are they?" He replied: "The family of `Ali, the family of `Aqil (a son of Abu Talib), the family of Ja`far (another son of Abu Talib), and the family of `Abbas. Sadaqa is unlawful for all of these." The above hadith is not in Tirmidhi. The version narrated by Tirmidhi (he said: hadith hasan gharib) states that Zayd ibn Arqam said: The Messenger of Allah said: "I am leaving among you that which, if you hold fast to it, you will never go astray after me. One of them is greater than the other: that is, the Book of Allah, the rope that is extended down from the heaven to the earth; and my mantle -- the People of my House. These two shall never part ways until they both come to me at the Pond. Therefore attend to how you act with them after me." We are ordered to invoke blessings on the Family of the Prophet including his wives. When the Companions asked the Prophet how they should invoke blessings on him, he said: Say: "O Allah, bless Muhammad, his wives, and his offspring as you blessed Ibrahim; and further grant blessing on Muhammad, his wives, and his offspring, as you granted blessing on Ibrahim. Verily, Yours is all the Majesty and Glory." It is narrated by Bukhari with two chains, Nasa'i, Abu Dawud, Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Malik. Abu Ya`la narrated from Abu Hurayra that the Prophet said: "The best among you are the best towards my Family after me." al-Haythami cited it in Majma` al-zawa'id (6:40) and said: "Abu Ya`la narrates it and its narrators are all trustworthy." Ibn 'Abbas said that the Messenger of Allah said, "Allah divided people into two groups, and He put me in the best group. Allah talks of 'The Companions of the Right' and 'the Companions of the Left.' I am among the Companions of the Right and I am the best of the Companions of the Right. Then He divided the two groups into three and put me in the best of the three. He says, 'The Companions of the Right and the Companions of the Left and the Outstrippers, the Outstrippers.' (56:9) I am among the Outstrippers and I am the best of the Outstrippers. Then He divided the three into tribes and He put me in the best tribe. Allah says, 'We have appointed you races and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed the noblest among you is the most god fearing. Allah is Knowing, Aware.' (49:13) I am the most god fearing of the sons of Adam and the noblest in the sight of Allah, and it is no boast. Then He divided the tribes and put me in the best house. He says, 'Allah only desires to remove impurity from you, People of the House, and to purify you. (33:33) (Hadith from at-Tabarani and al-Bayhaqi.) The following is from The Ash-Shifa of Qadi 'Iyad in the chapter Devotion to his family, descendants and wives Part of respect for the Prophet and devotion to him is devotion to his family, his descendants and his wives, the Mothers of the believers, as he urged and as the Salaf did. Allah said, "Allah wants to remove impurity from you, people of the House."(33:33) He said, "His wives are their mothers." (33:6) Zayd ibn Arqam related that the Messenger of Allah said, "I implore you by Allah! The people of my House!" three times . we asked Zayd who constituted the people of his House and he said, "The family of Ali by the People of his House, and he said, "The family of 'Ali, the family of Ja'far.(A son of Abu Talib.) the family of `Aqil, (Another son of Abu Talib.) and the family of al-'Abbas."(Muslim.) The Prophet said, "I am leaving you something, taking hold of which will prevent you form going astray: the Book of Allah and my family, the People of my House. So take care how you follow me regarding them."(No source given.) One of the 'ulama' said, "'Recognition' in this case means recognising their place in relation to the Prophet. Recognition of that brings with it recognition of rights and respect that are due to them because of it." 'Umar ibn Abi Salama said that "Allah wants to remove impurity from you, People of the House,"(33:33) was revealed in Umm Salama's house. The Prophet summoned Fatima. Hasan, and Husayn and enfolded them in a garment and 'Ali was behind him. Then he said, " O Allah! These are the People of my House, so remove all impurity from them and purify them completely!"(At- Tirmidhi.) Sa'd ibn Abi Waqqas said that when the ayat of mutual cursing ("And whosoever disputes with you concerning him after the knowledge that has come to you, say, 'Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our wives and your wives, our selves and your selves, then let us humbly pray and so lay the curse of Allah upon the ones who lie.'"(3:61) was revealed, the Prophet called 'Ali, Hasan, Husayn and Fatima, and said, "O Allah! These are my family."(Muslim.) The Prophet said about 'Ali, "Whoever has me for a master, 'Ali is his master. O Allah, befriend the one who befriend him and oppose the one who opposes him!(Ibn Hanbal.) He also said to him, "Only a believer will love you and only a hypocrite will hate you."(Muslim.) He said to al-'Abbas, "By the One who has my soul in His hand, belief will not enter a man's heart until he loves Allah and His Messenger. Whoever harms my uncle has harmed me. A man's uncle is like his father."(At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah.) He also said al-'Abbas, "Feed 'Ali with your children, my uncle." Then he gathered them and wrapped them with his robe, saying, "This is my uncle any my father's twin and these are the people of my house, so veil them from the Fire as I am veiling them." The lintel of the door and the walls of the house said, "Amen! Amen!"(Al-Bayhaqi.) He used to take the hand of Usama ibn Zayd and al-Hasan and say' "Love them, O Allah, for I love them."(Al-Bukhari.) Abu Bakr said, "Respect Muhammad by respecting the People of his House." He also said, "By the One who has my soul in His hand, the near kin of the Messenger of Allah are dearer to me than my own kinsfolk." These two reports are narrated by Bukhari in his Sahih. The Prophet said, "Allah loves those who love Hasan."(At- Tirmidhi.) He also said, "Whoever loves these two(Al-Hasan and al- Husayn ibn 'Ali ibn Abi Talib.) The Prophet said, "Whoever demeans Quraysh, Allah will demean him.(At-Tirmidhi.) The Prophet said, "Give preference to Quraysh and do not precede them."(Al-Bazzar.) He said to Umm Salama, "Do not injure me by injuring 'A'isha."(Al-Bukhari.) 'Uqba ibn al-Harith said, "I saw Bakr putting al-Hasan on his shoulders, saying, "By my father, he resembles the Prophet! He does not resemble 'Ali!" 'Ali was laughing. It is related that 'Abdullah ibn Hasan ibn Husayn sad, "I came to 'Umar ibn 'Abdu'l-'Aziz when I was in need of something and he said, 'If you have need, then send for me or write to me. I am ashamed before 'Allah to see you at my door.'"(Even though he was the Khalif, he was ashamed to have someone form the Prophet's family asking for something in public.) Ash-Shab'i said. "Zayd ibn Thabit prayed in his mother's funeral prayer and then brought his mule near so he could mount it. Ibn 'Abbas came and took hold of the stirrup. Zayd said, 'Let go, nephew of the Messenger of Allah!' He said, 'This is the way we act with men of knowledge.' Then Zayd kissed the hand of Ibn 'Abbas. He said, 'This is the way I was commanded to act with the people of the House of the Prophet.'"(His mother was al-Nuwwar bint Malik.) Ibn 'Umar saw Muhammad ibn Usama ibn Zayd and said, :Would that he were my slave!" He was told, "That is Muhammad ibn Usama." Ibn 'Umar bowed his head and struck the earth with his hand and said, "If the Messenger of Allah had seen him he would have loved him." Al-Awza'i said, "The daughter of Usama ibn Zayd, the Prophet's Companion, went to see 'Umar ibn 'Abdu'l-'Aziz. A mawla of hers was with her holding her hand. 'Umar rose for her and walked to her and put her hand in his and then placed his hand on his garment. Then he walked some way with her, sat her in his own place and then sat down in front of her. He did not leave any request she had ungranted." When 'Umar ibn al-Khattab allotted his son ;Abdullah three thousand and Usama ibn Zayd three thousand five hundred, 'Abdullah said to his father, "Why did you give him more than me? By Allah, he did not get to the battle ahead of me! He said, Because Zayd was dearer to the Messenger of Allah that your father, and Usama was dearer to him than you, so I preferred the love of the Messenger of Allah to my love." Mu'awiya heard that Kabis ibn Rabi'a resembled the Messenger of Allah. When he came to him, he got up from his seat, met him and kissed him between the eyes and gave him al-Mirghab (A very valuable piece of land.) as a fief because of his resemblance to the Messenger of Allah. It is related that when Ja'far ibn Sulayman (Abbasid governor of Madina for the Khalif, Ja'far al-Mansur; he was a descendant of al-'Abbas.) flogged Malik ibn Anas and he was carried out unconscious, the people came in to him. He regained consciousness and said, "I testify to you that I have made my flogging a lawful act!" Later he was asked about that and said, "I am afraid of dying and meting the Prophet with the shame that one of his family entered the Fire because of me." It is said that the Khalif al-Mansur said that he could take retaliation on Ja'far. Malik said to him, "I seek refuge in Allah! every time the whip left my body I made it lawful because of his kinship to the Messenger of Allah." Abu Bakr ibn 'Ayyash said, "If Abu Bakr, 'Umar and 'Ali had come to me, I would have begun with what 'Ali needed first. Because of his kinship to the Messenger of Allah I would rather fall from heaven to earth than prefer them to him." Someone said to Ibn 'Abbas, "So-and-so has died", referring to one of the Prophet's wives. He prostrated and people asked him, "Do you prostrate at this hour?" He replied, What sign could be greater than the departure of one of the wives of the Prophet?" (This is a reference to the prayer that is performed during an eclipse of the sun or moon.) Abu Bakr and 'Umar used to visit Umm Ayman, the Prophet's mawla, They said: "The Messenger of Allah used to visit her." When Halima as-Sa'diyya (The Prophet's wet-nurse.) came to the Prophet, he spread out his cloak for her and took care of what she needed. When the Prophet died, she came up to Abu Bakr and 'Umar and they did the same for her. Blessings and peace upon the Prophet, his Family, Wives, and Children, and his Companions. May Allah grant us to love Him, His Prophet, all His Prophet's Companions, as well as to love the People of the House of the Prophet, and may He raise us under his banner and enter us into Paradise with the Pious: the Prophets, the Truthful, the Martyrs, and the Righteous; what an excellent company! And praise belongs to Allah.

  9. Twelve Muslim Rulers - Sahih Bukhari

    :sl: The first 5 Khalifs can be listed as per the Hadeeth , as for the later Khilafahs they were not really khilafahs rather more like monarchies when referring to Banu Umaya or Banul Abbas. As you can find in the Hadith : The Prophetic khilaafah will last for thirty years. Then Allaah will give the dominion to whomever He wills (then there will be kings). Imam Ibn Hajar in Bukhari explanation, Kitab Ahkaam, vol 15, page 125: 􂌄 Þæáå Ãí ÃÃíË ÓÃíäÉ íÚäí ÇáÃí ÃÎÑÌå ÃÕÃÇÈ ÇáÓää æÕÃÃÃ¥ ÇÈä ÃÈÇä æÛíÑå «ÇáÎáÇÃÉ ÈÚÃí 臂辊 ÓäÉ¡ Ëã Êßæä ãáßÇð» áÃä ÇáËáÇËíä  áã íßä ÃíåÇ ÅáÇ ÇáÎáÃÇà ÇáÃÑÈÚÉ æÃíÇã ÇáÃÓä Èä Úáí. Which means: (The obvious from the statment in the Hadith of Safeena that was narrated by the Imams of Sunnan and authenticated by Ibn Hibban and others: (The Prophet said): " the Khilfah of Nubuwwah (according to the Prophet) is 30 years then it will be kingship". Imam Ibn Hajar continues: the 30 years only included the 4 khulafa and the days of Imam Hasan bin Ali(lasted for 6 months to complete the 30 years) . So those who pin point the twelve as per the hadith are deducing and its not 100% accurate. shukran
  10. Fight With My Saudi Homestay/friend

    :sl: I think you should reconcile with him as your Islamic brother, yet keep a distance since i know this mentality you have spoken about simply bad news. Take hint to the other Saudis who have warned you of his behavior previously. As for the brother In Makkah , about Saudi Blood, Saudis are Mostly Tribes of the Arab peninsula in general and City goers like the people of Makkah and Madeenah who are mostly not of tribes. Immigrants with Saudi passports there are hardly any , and if there are , they are at least 4th generation making them very much Saudis as well.

  17. Christianity Simplified

    Wait a minute . Now i think , you yourself are not convinced with what you just said . You said the "OTHER TWO" so are they really one like certain verses in the bible are deduced from by Christians ? For there are 3 that bear record in heaven - Father - Son - and Holy Ghost - and these 3 are 1 period . Is that what the verse says ?
  18. Christianity Simplified

    So why does Jesus not have knowledge of the Hour ? Day of Judgment ? Ameer ? Care to explain that please .
  19. Muslims Are Gentiles?

    Jesus Second coming in Islam , means that he will implement what Muhammad :sl: The Final and seal of prophets came with . He is not coming with something new . Alaihis salaam.

    Is that what the two main Bodies in Christianity preach Tom ? Catholics and Protestants ?
  21. Christianity Simplified

    tom you side stepped my Question :sl: ? No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."-Matt 24:36 (New International Version (©1984)) "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."-Mark 13:32 (New International Version (©1984)) "He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority."-Acts 1:7 (New International Version (©1984) IF they are one , then why does only the father know , dont they share the same knowledge ?
  22. Muslims Are Gentiles?

    More wrong Questions , we believe Jesus was sent only to his nation where as Muhammad :sl: was sent to all of mankind , Jesus a.s. was Just a normal prophet like all other prophet while Muhammad was the seal and final messenger . :sl: So Gentiles dont fit in with Muslims period . If you asked a question like , are Anglo Saxons - or Hispanic Americans Jews then you can get an Answer no they are gentiles . Get it ?
  23. Christianity Simplified

    IF they dont have the same Knowledge then only one can be God , and it means Christians have made one hell of a big mistake :sl:
  24. Muslims Are Gentiles?
