  1. Why Is Have A Welcome Drink The Title

    Welcome how can we help ?
  2. How Islamic Is Taliban?

    Asalamu alaikum and this should be my last post inshallah on this topic Islaam and sunnah is clear who ever wishe to follwo it will see who is the right thing to do in times of fitnah there will be no way to victory other than uniting what united the early Muslim , innovations and misguidance cant be in one place to build up the truth cant mix with falsehood it doesnt matter the intention , the means matters equal to the intention if intention is wrong then there is no benefit also the mean the path choosen to achive the intention has to be right same as the intention else it is vain. I urge to all to read the following i will post and be atentive what is said there An Explanation Of Sharh us Sunnah Of Imaam Al-Barbahaari By Shaykh Allaamah Ahmed Ibn Yahya An Najmee “Know that people never introduce an innovation until they abandon its like from the Sunnah. So, beware of newly invented matters, since every newly invented matter is an innovation and every innovation is misguidance and its people are in the Fire.” Explanation: The author intended that whomsoever abandons the Sunnah and introduces an innovation has fallen into two hideous crimes: Firstly: They have abandoned the Sunnah. Secondly: That they have introduced an innovation. The invention of innovations is connected to the abandonment of the Sunan. There is not a slave who introduces an innovation except that they abandon a Sunnah. So beware of falling into this prohibition whereby contradicting what you have been commanded. Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, will never reward someone unless they follow the Sunnah of the His Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and whomsoever abandons something of the Sunnah has surely forsaken something from the Qur’aan, because Allaah the Mighty and Majestic, in many verses in His Book, commanded that his Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) be followed, an example being the saying of Allaah the Most High: “O you who believe! Answer Allaah (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) when he calls you to that which will give you life, and know that Allaah comes in between a person and his heart (i.e. He prevents an evil person to decide anything). And verily to Him you shall (all) be gathered.” 1 “And fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial, etc.) which affects not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong (but it may afflict all the good and the bad people), and know that Allaah is Severe in punishment.”2 --------- Here, Allaah the Mighty and Majestic has informed us that refusing to respond to Allaah and His Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is a reason for being afflicted with a Fitnah that doesn’t only affect the oppressive, rather it encompasses all. Allaah the Most High said: “Say (O Muhammad to mankind): "If you (really) love Allaah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur’aan and the Sunnah), Allaah will love youand forgive you of your sins. And Allaah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”3 The threat, for abandoning the Sunan and introducing innovations, is a severe threat as mentioned in the verses of Surah al-Anfaal and as found in Surah An-Noor: “And when they are called to Allaah (i.e. His Words, the Qur’aan) and His Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), to judge between them, lo! A party of them refuse (to come) and turn away. “But if the right is with them, they come to him willingly with submission. “Is there a disease in their hearts? Or do they doubt or fear lest Allaah and His Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) should wrong them in judgment. Nay, it is they themselves who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists, hypocrites and wrong-doers, etc.).”4 Also the saying of Allaah the Most High: “And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell - what an evil destination.”5 And as the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: "All of my nation will enter paradise except those who refuse. They said, O Messenger of Allah, who will refuse? He responded, Those who obey me will enter paradise and those who disobeyed me have refused." That is why the innovator is disobedient to Allaah and His Messenger, he is a follower of his own lusts, and he rates himself, because it is as if his actions are saying that his opinion and desires are superior to what the Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) came with.Beware of being from these types of people, and being threatened with the hellfire; and refuge is sought with Allaah. And all success lies with Allaah. 1 Soorah Al-Anfaal: 24 2 Soorah Al-Anfaal: 25 3 Surah Aal-‘Imraan: 31 4 Surah An-Noor: 48-50 5 Surah An-Nisaa: 115 --------- another point is ... Know that leaving the correct path occurs in two ways. Firstly: that a man strays from the correct path intending nothing but good, so his error is not to be followed since it leads to destruction. (Secondly), a man who deliberately opposes the truth and acts contrary to the Pious ones who came before him, he is astray, leading others astray, a rebellious devil within the Ummah. It is a duty upon those who know of him to warn the people against him and to explain his condition to them so that no one falls into his innovation and is destroyed. (Sharh us Sunnah Of Imaam Al-Barbahaari) explanation If the author would have been a bit more specific about when a person is considered to be destroyed and when this judgment is applied to them by saying: ‘He would be destroyed if he dies and does not repent,’ (it would have been better).I say: Merely intending to do good without adhering to the straight path, which Allaah (revealed) and his Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) conveyed, is not sufficient. An example of this is the (story) narrated by (‘Amr Ibn Salamah) who said: “We used to sit by the door of 'Abdullaah ibn Mas'ood before the Morning Prayer, so that when he came out we would walk with him to the Masjid. (One day) Aboo Moosa al-Ash'aree came to us and said, "Has Aboo 'Abd ar-Rahmaan come out yet?" We replied, "No." So he sat down with us until he came out. When he came out, we all stood along with him, so Aboo Moosa said to him, "O Abu 'Abd ar-Rahmaan! I have just seen something in the Masjid which I deemed to be evil, but all praise is for Allaah, I did not see anything except good." He enquired, "Then what is it?" (Aboo Moosa) replied, "If you live you will see it. I saw in the Masjid people sitting in circles awaiting the Prayer. In each circle they had pebbles in their hands and a man would say, 'Repeat Allaahu Akbar a hundred times.' So they would repeat it a hundred times. Then he would say, 'Say Laa ilaaha illallaah a hundred times.' So they would say it a hundred times. Then he would say, 'Say SubhaanAllaah a hundred times.' So they would say it a hundred times." (Ibn Mas'ood) asked, "What did you say to them?" (Aboo Moosa) said, "I did not say anything to them. Instead I waited to hear your view or what you declared." (Ibn Mas'ood) replied, "Would that you had ordered them to count up the evil deeds they acquired and assured them that their good deeds would not be lost!" Then we went along with him (Ibn Mas'ood) until he came to one of these circles and stood and said, "What is this which I see you doing?" They replied, "O Abu 'Abd ar-Rahmaan! These are pebbles upon which we are counting takbeer, tahleel and tasbeeh." He said, "Count up your evil deeds. I assure you that none of your good deeds will be lost. Woe to you, O Ummah of Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)! How quickly you go to destruction! These are the Companions of your Prophet and who are widespread. There are his clothes which have not yet decayed and his bowl which is unbroken. By Him in Whose Hand is my soul! Either you are upon a Religion better guided than the Religion of Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) or that you are opening the door of misguidance." They said, "O Abu 'Abd ar-Rahmaan! By Allaah, we only intended good." He said, "How many there are who intend good but do not achieve it. Indeed Allaah's Messenger said to us, 'A people will recite the Qur'aan but it will not pass beyond their throats.' By Allah! I do not know, perhaps most of them are from you." Then he left them. ‘Amr ibn Salamah said: We saw most of those people fighting against us on the day of Nahrawaan, along with the Khawaarij.” Reported by Ad-Daarimee.1 This proves that a good intention alone is not enough because every action has to fulfill two conditions: 1. The action has to be performed sincerely for the sake of Allaah. 2. The action has to be done in accordance with what the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) legislated. The people of innovation always seek to draw closer to Allaah but are unfamiliar with the correct way to do this and they do not have adequate knowledge to prevent them from practicing innovation. However, if a person in this situation is truly sincere, then Allaah will facilitate it for them to meet someone who will educate them, clarify to them the (truth) and protect them from the evil of the people of innovation, who always warn against listening to genuine advisors. If he then chooses to repent, Allaah will accept his repentance but if he remains upon innovation then his affair rests with Allaah, whether He chooses to pardon or punish him. Then the author said: (Secondly), a man who deliberately opposes the truth and acts contrary to the Pious ones who came before him, he is astray, leading others astray, a rebellious devil within the Ummah. It is a duty upon those who know of him to warn the people against him and to explain his condition to them so that no one falls into his innovation and is destroyed. Indeed, it is compulsory upon everyone who is aware of the truth to support it. Any innovator who knows the truth, and it has been made clear to them that this (act/belief) is a misguided innovation, but refuses to abstain from it and instead adheres to and defends it is astray, leading others astray, a rebellious devil within the Ummah. It is necessary to inform the people of his real condition and warn them against him otherwise he will mislead some of the students of knowledge, deceive them and call them to his innovation. Nothing should hinder someone who understands his state from clarifying it to the people and warning against him - it is upon them to do this to fulfill their duty - so that those who do not recognise his innovation may forsake him. Whoever claims that criticising the people of innovation leads to disunity and separation is misguided because he desires that the Ummah unite upon misguidance. Islaam does not tolerate this kind of (attitude); Islaam does not accept this (behaviour). Abstaining from clarifying (the truth) is a rejection of a (form) of Jihaad that Allaah has commanded with His Saying: ‘O Prophet (Muhammad SAW)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, - and worst indeed is that destination.’ [Tawbah: 73] Also, the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said in a hadeeth: “The reverence of people should never stop any of you from speaking the truth if you hear or see it.” (This hadeeth is) reported by Ahmed in his Musnad, 50, 53 and 84, with anauthentic chain of narration. Success is granted by Allaah. also i urge to read the following: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=727780.html"]Allaah Grants Help and Victory to Followers of the True Deen, The State Of The Ummah And Its Return To Victory [/url] (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=727780.html&"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=727780.html&[/url]
  3. Allaah Grants Help and Victory to Followers of the True Deen

    Allaah Grants Help and Victory to Followers of the True Deen By Imâm ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah rahimahullâh From "Ighâthatul-Lahfân min Masâ'id ish-Shaytân" ------------------------------------------------------- A lot of people think that followers of the True Religion are humiliated, subdued and always defeated, unlike those who follow other paths. So they do not have certainty in Allâh's promise of victory for His religion and His servants. Rather, even if they don't say it, they think that this promise is either particular to a specific group, or to a specific time, or they link it to Allâh's will (not related to any rules that Allâh set in His creation). This (attitude and understanding) is due to absence of certainty in the Promise of Allâh, the Most High, and due to a poor understanding of His Book. 1. Allâh subhânahu has explained in His Book that He is the Helper of believers in this world and the next: He said, the Most High, "Indeed We will support Our messengers and those who believe during the life of this world and on the Day when the witnesses will stand." [Ghâfir 40:51] "And whoever is an ally of Allâh and His Messenger and those who have believed - indeed, the party of Allâh - they will be the predominant." [al-Mâ'idah 5:56] "Indeed, the ones who oppose Allâh and His Messenger - those will be among the most humbled. Allâh has written [i.e. decreed], 'I will surely overcome, I and My messengers.' Indeed, Allâh is Powerful and Exalted in Might." [al-Mujâdilah 58:20-21] There are many such verses in the Qur'ân. 2. Allâh subhânahu has also explained in the Qur'ân that what befalls a servant from calamity, or defeat, or other than that, is because of his sins. Allâh subhânahu has explained both of these principles in His Book, so when you join them, the reality of the matter will become clear to you, problems will completely disappear, and you will be in no need of unnecessary, burdening explanations, or far-fetched interpretations. Allâh subhânahu wa ta'âla has explained the first principle in different ways, including what has preceded (in the verses above). Likewise, He censured one who seeks help and honour from other than the believers, as in His saying: "O you who have believed do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allâh guides not the wrongdoing people. So you see those in whose hearts is disease [i.e. hypocrisy] hastening into [association with] them, saying, 'We are afraid a misfortune may strike us.' But perhaps Allâh will bring conquest or a decision from Him, and they will become, over what they have been concealing within themselves, regretful. And those who believe will say [i.e. about the hypocrites and their exposure], 'Are these the ones who swore by Allâh their strongest oaths that indeed they were with you?' Their deeds have become worthless, and they have become losers. O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion - Allâh will bring forth [in place of them] a people He will love and who will love Him [who are] humble toward the believers, powerful against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allâh and do not fear the blame of a critic. That is the favour of Allâh; He bestows it upon whom He wills. And Allâh is all-Encompassing and Knowing. Your ally is none but Allâh and [therefore] His Messenger and those who have believed - those who establish prayer and give zakâh, and they bow [in worship]. And whoever is an ally of Allâh and His Messenger and those who have believed - indeed, the party of Allâh - they will be the predominant." [al-Mâ'idah 5:51-56] So Allâh rebuked those who seek help from other than His party and informed that His party – they will be the predominant. In this regards, He said, "Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment. Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honour [through power]? But indeed, honour belongs to Allâh entirely *." [an-Nisâ' 4:138-139] [* Being the source of all power and honour, Allâh grants them to whom He wills.] "They say, 'If we return to Al-Madînah, the more honoured [for power] will surely expel there from the more humble.' And to Allâh belongs [all] honour, and to His Messenger, and to the believers, but the hypocrites do not know." [Al-Munâfiqûn 63:8] "Whoever desires honour [through power] - then to Allâh belong all honour. To Him ascends good speech, and righteous work raises it *." [Fâtir 35:10] [*For acceptance by Allâh, meaning that righteous deeds are confirmation and proof of what is uttered by tongue.] That is, whoever seeks honour, let him seek it by obedience to Allâh through good speech and righteous work. "It is He who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although they will associate others with Allâh dislike it." [at-Taubah 9:33] "O you who have believed, shall I guide you to a transaction that will save you from a painful punishment? [it is that] you believe in Allâh and His Messenger and strive in the cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives. That is best for you, if you should know. He will forgive for you your sins and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow and pleasant dwellings in gardens of perpetual residence. That is the great attainment. And [you will obtain] another [favour] that you love - victory from Allâh and an imminent conquest; and give good tidings to the believers." [saff 61:10-13] That is, He will give them another [favour] besides forgiveness of their sins and entrance to the Paradise – help and victory: “O you who have believed, be supporters of Allâh, as when Jesus, the son of Mary, said to the disciples, 'Who are my supporters for Allâh?' The disciples said, 'We are supporters of Allâh.' And a faction of the Children of israel believed and a faction disbelieved. So We supported those who believed against their enemy, and they became dominant." [saff 61:14] Allâh said to Jesus, 'alayhis salâm, "'Indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify [i.e. free] you from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you [in submission to Allâh alone] superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection." [Âl-'Imrân 3:55] So because the Christians follow him, they are superior to the Jews until the Day of Resurrection, and because Muslims follow him more than the Christians, they are superior to them until the Day of Resurrection. Allâh ta'ala said to the believers, "And if these [Makkans] who disbelieve were to fight you, they would certainly turn their backs [in flight]. Then they would not find a protector or a helper. [This is] the established way of Allâh which has occurred before. And you will never find in the way of Allâh any change." [Fath 48:22-23] This is addressed to the believers who fulfilled both outward and inward realities of faith. “Indeed, the [best] outcome is for the righteous." [Hûd 11:49] And, "The [best] outcome is for [those of] righteousness." [Tâ-Hâ 20:132] The intended here is the outcome in this world before the next, because He mentioned this after the story of Nûh, and his victory over his people and patience with them. So He said, "This is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. You knew it not, neither you nor your people, before this. So be patient, indeed, the [best] outcome is for the righteous." [Hûd 11:49] That is, the outcome of help for you and those with you, as it was for Nûh - 'alayhis salâm – and those who believed with him. Likewise His saying, "And enjoin prayer upon your family [and people] and be steadfast therein. We ask you not for provision; We provide for you and the [best] outcome is for [those of] righteousness." [Tâ-Hâ 20:132] "If good touches you, it distresses them; but if harm strikes you, they rejoice at it. And if you are patient and fear Allâh, their plot will not harm you at all. Indeed, Allâh is encompassing of what they do." [Âl-'Imrân 3:120] "Yes, if you remain patient and conscious of Allâh and they [i.e. the enemy] come upon you [attacking] in rage, your Lord will reinforce you with five thousand angels having marks [of distinction]." [Âl-'Imrân 3:125] He said, relating the words of Yûsuf - 'alayhis salâm – that he was helped due to his taqwa and his patience. So he said, "'I am Joseph, and this is my brother. Allâh has certainly favoured us. Indeed, he who fears Allâh and is patient, then indeed, Allâh does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.'" [Yûsuf 12:90] "O you who have believed, if you fear Allâh, He will grant you a criterion and will remove from you your misdeeds and forgive you. And Allâh is the possessor of great bounty." [al-Anfâl 8:29] The criterion is honour and help, and victory and light, which distinguish between the Truth and the falsehood. "And whoever fears Allâh – He will make for him a way out. And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allâh – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allâh will accomplish His purpose. Allâh has already set for everything a [decreed] extent." [at-Talâq 65:3-4] Ibn Mâjah and Ibn Abî Dunya have related on the authority of Abû Dharr, radhiallâhu 'anhu, that the Prophet, sallallâhu ta'ala 'alayhi wa alihi wa sallam said: "If all people acted in accordance with this ayah, it would suffice them." [Narrators of the hadîth are trustworthy except that the chain is disconnected, so the hadîth is weak] This is related to the first principle. As for the second principle: "Why [is it that] when a [single] disaster struck you [on the day of Uhud], although you had struck [the enemy in the Battle of Badr] with one twice as great, you said, 'From where is this?' Say, 'It is from yourselves [i.e. due to your sin].' And Allâh, over all things, is competent." [Âl-'Imrân 3:165] "Indeed, those of you who turned back on the day the two armies met [at Uhud] - it was Satan who caused them to slip because of some [blame] they had earned. But Allâh has already forgiven them. Indeed, Allâh is Forgiving and Forbearing." [Âl-'Imrân 3:155] "And whatever strikes you of disaster - it is for what your hands have earned; but He pardons much." [ash-Shûra 42:30] "Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned so He [i.e. Allâh] may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that perhaps they will return [i.e. refrain]." [ar-Rûm 30:41] "But if they turn away - then We have not sent you [O Muhammad], over them as a guardian; upon you is only [the duty of] notification. And indeed, when We let man taste mercy from Us, he rejoices in it; but if evil afflicts him for what his hands have put forth, then indeed, man is ungrateful." [ash-Shûra 42:48] "And when We let the people taste mercy, they rejoice therein, but if evil afflicts them for what their hands have put forth, immediately they despair." [ar-Rûm 30:36] "Or He could destroy them for what they earned; but He pardons much." [ash-Shûra 42:34] "What comes to you of good is from Allâh, but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself. And We have sent you, [O Muhammad], to the people as a messenger, and sufficient is Allâh as Witness." [an-Nisâ' 4:79] This is why Allâh subhânahu ordered His Messenger and believers to follow what was sent to them, that is, to be obedient to Him. This is the first principle. He also ordered them to wait for His Promise, and this is the second principle. And He ordered them to seek forgiveness and practice patience because the servant will certainly have shortcomings and seeking forgiveness will clear those shortcomings. Likewise, patience is required while waiting for the Promise. Obedience is perfected and completed with seeking forgiveness, and certainty in the Promise is perfected and completed with patience. Allâh subhânahu has joined the two in His saying, "So be patient. Indeed, the promise of Allâh is truth. And ask for forgiveness of your sin and exalt [Allâh] with praise of your Lord in the evening and the morning." [Ghâfir 40:55] Allâh subhânahu has mentioned in His book the stories of the Prophets and their followers and how they saved themselves with patience and obedience. Then He said, "There were certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding." [Yûsuf 12:111]
  4. Allaah Grants Help and Victory to Followers of the True Deen

    Allaah Grants Help and Victory to Followers of the True Deen By Imâm ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah rahimahullâh From "Ighâthatul-Lahfân min Masâ'id ish-Shaytân" Translator is unknown ------------------------------------------------------- A lot of people think that followers of the True Religion are humiliated, subdued and always defeated, unlike those who follow other paths. So they do not have certainty in Allâh's promise of victory for His religion and His servants. Rather, even if they don't say it, they think that this promise is either particular to a specific group, or to a specific time, or they link it to Allâh's will (not related to any rules that Allâh set in His creation).

So We supported those who believed against their enemy, and they became dominant." [saff 61:14] Allâh said to Jesus, 'alayhis salâm, "'Indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify [i.e. free] you from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you [in submission to Allâh alone] superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection." [Âl-'Imrân 3:55] So because the Christians follow him, they are superior to the Jews until the Day of Resurrection, and because Muslims follow him more than the Christians, they are superior to them until the Day of Resurrection. Allâh ta'ala said to the believers, "And if these [Makkans] who disbelieve were to fight you, they would certainly turn their backs [in flight]. Then they would not find a protector or a helper. [This is] the established way of Allâh which has occurred before. And you will never find in the way of Allâh any change." [Fath 48:22-23] This is addressed to the believers who fulfilled both outward and inward realities of faith. “Indeed, the [best] outcome is for the righteous." [Hûd 11:49] And, "The [best] outcome is for [those of] righteousness." [Tâ-Hâ 20:132] The intended here is the outcome in this world before the next, because He mentioned this after the story of Nûh, and his victory over his people and patience with them. So He said, "This is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. You knew it not, neither you nor your people, before this. So be patient, indeed, the [best] outcome is for the righteous." [Hûd 11:49] That is, the outcome of help for you and those with you, as it was for Nûh - 'alayhis salâm – and those who believed with him. Likewise His saying, "And enjoin prayer upon your family [and people] and be steadfast therein. We ask you not for provision; We provide for you and the [best] outcome is for [those of] righteousness." [Tâ-Hâ 20:132] "If good touches you, it distresses them; but if harm strikes you, they rejoice at it. And if you are patient and fear Allâh, their plot will not harm you at all. Indeed, Allâh is encompassing of what they do." [Âl-'Imrân 3:120] "Yes, if you remain patient and conscious of Allâh and they [i.e. the enemy] come upon you [attacking] in rage, your Lord will reinforce you with five thousand angels having marks [of distinction]." [Âl-'Imrân 3:125] He said, relating the words of Yûsuf - 'alayhis salâm – that he was helped due to his taqwa and his patience. So he said, "'I am Joseph, and this is my brother. Allâh has certainly favoured us. Indeed, he who fears Allâh and is patient, then indeed, Allâh does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.'" [Yûsuf 12:90] "O you who have believed, if you fear Allâh, He will grant you a criterion and will remove from you your misdeeds and forgive you. And Allâh is the possessor of great bounty." [al-Anfâl 8:29] The criterion is honour and help, and victory and light, which distinguish between the Truth and the falsehood. "And whoever fears Allâh – He will make for him a way out. And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allâh – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allâh will accomplish His purpose. Allâh has already set for everything a [decreed] extent." [at-Talâq 65:3-4] Ibn Mâjah and Ibn Abî Dunya have related on the authority of Abû Dharr, radhiallâhu 'anhu, that the Prophet, sallallâhu ta'ala 'alayhi wa alihi wa sallam said: "If all people acted in accordance with this ayah, it would suffice them." [Narrators of the hadîth are trustworthy except that the chain is disconnected, so the hadîth is weak] This is related to the first principle. As for the second principle: "Why [is it that] when a [single] disaster struck you [on the day of Uhud], although you had struck [the enemy in the Battle of Badr] with one twice as great, you said, 'From where is this?' Say, 'It is from yourselves [i.e. due to your sin].' And Allâh, over all things, is competent." [Âl-'Imrân 3:165] "Indeed, those of you who turned back on the day the two armies met [at Uhud] - it was Satan who caused them to slip because of some [blame] they had earned. But Allâh has already forgiven them. Indeed, Allâh is Forgiving and Forbearing." [Âl-'Imrân 3:155] "And whatever strikes you of disaster - it is for what your hands have earned; but He pardons much." [ash-Shûra 42:30] "Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned so He [i.e. Allâh] may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that perhaps they will return [i.e. refrain]." [ar-Rûm 30:41] "But if they turn away - then We have not sent you [O Muhammad], over them as a guardian; upon you is only [the duty of] notification. And indeed, when We let man taste mercy from Us, he rejoices in it; but if evil afflicts him for what his hands have put forth, then indeed, man is ungrateful." [ash-Shûra 42:48] "And when We let the people taste mercy, they rejoice therein, but if evil afflicts them for what their hands have put forth, immediately they despair." [ar-Rûm 30:36] "Or He could destroy them for what they earned; but He pardons much." [ash-Shûra 42:34] "What comes to you of good is from Allâh, but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself. And We have sent you, [O Muhammad], to the people as a messenger, and sufficient is Allâh as Witness." [an-Nisâ' 4:79] This is why Allâh subhânahu ordered His Messenger and believers to follow what was sent to them, that is, to be obedient to Him. This is the first principle. He also ordered them to wait for His Promise, and this is the second principle. And He ordered them to seek forgiveness and practice patience because the servant will certainly have shortcomings and seeking forgiveness will clear those shortcomings. Likewise, patience is required while waiting for the Promise. Obedience is perfected and completed with seeking forgiveness, and certainty in the Promise is perfected and completed with patience. Allâh subhânahu has joined the two in His saying, "So be patient. Indeed, the promise of Allâh is truth. And ask for forgiveness of your sin and exalt [Allâh] with praise of your Lord in the evening and the morning." [Ghâfir 40:55] Allâh subhânahu has mentioned in His book the stories of the Prophets and their followers and how they saved themselves with patience and obedience. Then He said, "There were certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding." [Yûsuf 12:111]
  5. The state of the Ummah and its return to Victory By Sheikh Muhammad Abdulwahhab al Banna Translation taken from Abu Ishaaq Nadeem Ahsan Shah All praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds, what is before you is a sitting of questions and answers with one of the eldest scholars alive today, Sheikh Muhammad Abdulwahhab al Banna hafidahullaah. This sitting was on Sunday night 17th Shawal 1422, 30th December 2001 in his house. “Our sheikh began by praising Allaah and sending prayers and blessings upon the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. And then he said: “I bear winess that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah without any partner. And I bear witness that the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam is the last and final Messenger, May Allaah’s peace be upon him and those that follow His guidance. May Allaah make us of those that follow His guidance and may He raise us in his likes amongst him sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa salllam. I mentioned in the previous sitting about that which our Lord ta’ala revealed to the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, with regards to that which we are in today, our situation as the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi sallam said in an authentic hadeeth, “The nations are about to summon one another against you just as a host calls its guests towards a feast.†And when the sahaba asked the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam saying “will that be due to our few number on that day?†Then the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “no that day you will be many in number but you will be like the foam that is upon the ocean, Allaah will remove the fear from the disbelievers’ hearts and will place wahn in your hearts.†So they asked, “what is wahn O Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam?†so he said, “Love for the world and hatred for dying.†I also mentioned that from the hadeeth of ibn Umar where the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said “If you deal with usury (eena), and you hold onto the cow’s tails and you are content with agriculture, and you leave off Jihaad in the path of Allaah, Allaah will permit your humiliation and he will not remove that state from you until you return back to your religion.†The continuation of humiliation and the nations gathering against the Muslims, this is something which is very clear and open. And the cure for this is not as some people suggest that it should be a political change or another form of change. Rather Allaah, the Most High, revealed that cure to the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam remained in Makkah for 13 years teaching the people Tawheed and teaching them and calling them to hold fast to his guidance. They faced that which they faced of hardship and trials, until Allaah made it easy for them to leave that area to make hijrah to Madinah and the people followed him and from there it went on. The first thing that is obligatory upon the Muslims in order for them to remove this state of humiliation and belittlement that they are in is that they should realize and know the reality of their religion. From the Book of Allah and from the Sunnah of the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam upon the understanding of the noble companions, those that were with the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. After mentioning the first thing the Muslims have to do in order to remove themselves from the state of humiliation and belittlement, just as our Lord revealed to our Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam the condition that we would face with regards to different groups and parties that split up as He made clear the correct and straight and upright methodology. Whoever followed it will be saved from the burning fire. He sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “My Ummah will split up into 73 sects and all of them will be in the fire except one.†When he was asked, “who are they?†The Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “Those who are upon what I and my companions are upon.†So even though Allaah chose that there would be some trials and hardship that these companions would face, He preserved them and protected them such that they were able to pass over to us and to those that came after, the Sunnah of the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam by way of his action, statements, and his agreements. His sunnah was preserved and passed on. So the first thing we should be upon to remove this humiliation is that we should know the way upon which the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam and what the sahaba were upon. Taking that from the Book of Allaah, the Quran and the books of Sunnah of the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. We take that with a firm hand. Taking it fully and completely without any complacency. This is the spiritual or the internal preparation by which the person’s eeman (faith) rises. After that the person would make the call to the other people upon this thing and to this thing as Allaah says in the Quran “And fight them with it or struggle with them a great striving†meaning with the Quran. The sunnah (way) of Allaah with all the Messengers and whoever follows them correctly is that they will come across many enemies and trials, and they will face hardship, it is upon them to remain patient as Allaah said, “enjoin the good and forbid the evil and be patient upon that which befalls you.†We should remain under the leadership of a leader or king who owns a recognized kingdom. We should obey him in ease and in hardship unless he orders us to do something sinful of which there is no obedience in that case. We do not remove our hand from him into disobedience and into separation and if he has, whatever the situation maybe. We do not spread out and openly mention his shortcomings as is reported in the Saheeh of Imam Muslim from the hadeeth of Hudayfah ibn Yaman radiallaahu ‘anhu, that the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “There will be leaders after me, who don’t take my guidance as a form of guidance and they do not take my Sunnah, they will have with them men whose hearts are like the hearts of devils but in the form of humans.†So Hudayfah asked the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, “what should we do if we meet this situation?†the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said “Listen and obey your leader even if he were to whip your back and take your money, listen and obey.†We don’t start by killing those who are enemies to us whether that being an individual or a group, we remain patient as the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam remained patient. And as Musa ‘alaihi sallam remained patient upon what the enemies of Islam showed to him. Patience until such a time when we have STRENGTH. Such that we are able to strike fear into the hearts of the enemy. Allaah did not permit His Messenger to fight until he had enough strength and ability by way of numbers and strength, to do so as Allaah mentions in the Quran, “Prepare yourselves as much as you are able to by way of strength and by cavalry such that you strike fear into the hearts of the enemy of Allaah and your enemy.†The Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam mentioned, “Indeed the form of strength is archery.†Meaning the leader and those under him should be preparing themselves by way of strength to the best form of weaponry that is in the hands of the enemy at that time. Since the best form of strength at that time was cavalry and archery. Whatever time you are in, your strength should be of a similar type against the enemy in order to strike fear into the hearts of the enemy…as Allaah says in the Quran, “And fight in the way of Allaah against those that fight you and do not overstep the bounds, indeed Allaah does not like those people who transgress beyond bounds.†The sheikh says, even then if it was established that the Muslims have gained enough strength, enough strength and power that would surpass all the weaponry of the disbelievers, Allaah orders his Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam after he had gained full strength that struck fear into the hearts of the disbelievers in that time with His saying in the Quran “Allaah does not prohibit you against those people who have not fought you and have not taken you out of your land that you treat them well and treat them justly.†If these people do not fight us or do not transgress against us, then we should not go forward and try to harm them and fight them. Rather, we should be good to them and deal with them in a good way. The sheikh says: so now what are the Islamic nations supposed to do in the state that they are in and with the weaponry that they have? They should bring their nation upon Islam and upon acting by Islam. Remaining upright upon that which Allaah and His Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam ordered. Our position would be similar to the position of the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi sallam when he was in Makkah and just as the position of Musa ‘alaihi sallam as he was with those people that believed in him. This was the position of patience and righteousness and piety. Phaoro was killing those that believed in Musa ‘alaihi sallam. Those ministers and supporters around him were encouraging Phaoro against the believers as Allaah mentions in the Quran “And the close followers from the people of Phaoro said to him ‘Will you leave Musa and his people to spread turmoil in the land and leave you and your idols?’†When Musa ‘alaihi wa sallam heard this that Phaoro was going to kill them and their children and spare their women. Musa said to his people “Be patient , indeed the earth belongs to Allaah and He will give inherence to it to whomsoever he wills and the final good end is for the righteous.†Meaning he ordered them to have patience from that which they will face of hardship and they should have piety and righteousness of Allaah, the Most High. And Allaah will support them. These believers said to Musa ‘alaihi sallam “We met harm before you came to us and after you came to us we still face this harm.†Musa ‘alaihi sallam said “And pray that your Lord destroys your enemy and He grants you leadership in the land and He will see that which you do.†As for going and ambushing and killing, then this is not the way. This is our position with the enemy. We should learn the reality of our religion and know who our Lord is. And unite…(unclear) upon the book of Allaah as He has ordered us. “And hold fast altogether to the rope of Allaah and do not be divided.†We fulfill the orders that He has given us and stay away from the prohibitions. Our situation should not be as many of the Muslims are in. As Allaah says “Do you believe in some of the Book and disbelieve in some of it, what is the reward of someone who does that except humiliation in this world and in the hereafter he will be returned to a severe torment.†In summarizing, we ask Allaah that He unites the Muslims upon the Book of Allaah and the sunnah of the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam upon the understanding of the companions. If they were to differ in anything then they should refer it back to their Lord and their Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam as Allaah ordered them to do so. We hope that the Muslims will repent and turn back to their Lord. That they go back to the straight path. We ask Allaah to give them the ability to remain obedient to their leaders and they do not revolt against them. That He protects them from this form of innocent killing and taking lives without purpose and revolting against leaders. That which we have seen has caused many problems and disturbances wa salli llahum ‘ala Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam
  6. How Islamic Is Taliban?

    Asalamu alaikum Sister you claim is wrong and baseless , taliban you find in them all sort of muslim in them they are mixed sufi ,ikhawnees and mainly deobandies which you find alot in pakistand india and afghanistan they are offshot of sufism similar to tabllegh jamat so on this shows that they are not safe or righteous group, it is clearly that they dont have scholars behind them as they also their manhaj is wrong too. ISLAAM is NOT what taliban proclaim clearly and fully this undoubtfully wrong to say that taliban are establishing islaam as quran and sunnah the real sharia law. May Allah guide them and unite the muslim in tru path that is the path of salaf us salih I warned that this will be a sect/party discussion . so it should be closed
  7. How Islamic Is Taliban?

    First read my post above i am outraged of how someone can rush and call Muslim a kafir and as u sayong whats is improving their condition? you have clearly with your ignorance overstepped the bounds and taking a big responisibility of making takfeer on a group of people!!!! Quran no where says that a sinful Muslim becomes kAFIR, NOR ANYWHERE FOR THAT MATTER that Muslim girls should mix in contrary there is clear rule about against free mixing. thirdly it is the way of the khawarijis to call a Muslim kafir becouse of His/her sins. Fourth your statment are worst than that what they done, becouse putting one out of islaam means that person or group of people will be in hell fire forever and who are you to claim that? you have what it takes to distinguish whats kufr becouse it is clear that you dont know what kufr is and is not i suggest first learn about islaam and what islaam teaches than speak out of anger and desire and wishes/emotions cos it is clearly a trend of youth to do this and you are not different. we dont need to argue about what taliban is and not is but your stament should be somthign you must repent and seek proper advice from knowledge people , becouse no where in Quran or hadeeth or the muslim Scholars have made takfeer in a group of Muslim Making takfir in a person is great resposibility let alone in a group of muslims. one more thing non Muslims are kafirs simple as that.
  8. How Islamic Is Taliban?

    ASALAMU ALAIKUM STOP this Ignrorance of Calling Muslim, KAFFIR Fear Allah as it should be Feared and do not call a muslim Kafir in spite of the sins LET ME REMIND YOU that It is reported on the authority of Ibn `Umar that the Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon him) said: Any person who calls his brother: O Unbeliever! (then the truth of this label) would return to one of them. If it is true, (then it is) as he asserted, (but if it is not true), then it returns to him (and thus the person who made the accusation is an Unbeliever). [Muslim] ------- From 'al-'Udhr bil-Jahl' (The Excuse of Ignorance), Translated by Abu Talha Dawud ibn Ronald Burbank and adapted by Abu Muntasir ibn Mohar 'Ali The Messenger sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said: "He who says to his brother 'O Disbeliever', then it returns upon one of them." [1] He also said: "And he who accuses a believer of Kufr (disbelief) then it is like killing him." [2] Imaam an-Nawawee said, "They differ as regards interpretation of this "returning", so it is said, "Kufr returns upon him if he is making that lawful", and this is far from the context of the narration, and it is said, "it is taken to refer to the Khawaarij", since they declare believers to be Kaafiroon (disbelievers)."[3] Imaam al-Haafidh (Ibn Hajr) says, "And what is correct is that the hadith (narration from the Messenger sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam was said as a warning against a Muslim saying that to his brother. It is said, "What returns upon him is his speaking ill of his brother and the sin of declaring him a kaafir (disbeliever)", and this is reasonable. It is also said, "It is to be feared that this will lead him into kufr", just as it is said, "sins leads towards kufr". Thus it is feared that if he continues in that and persists in it then he will have a bad end. I prefer from these sayings that it refers to the one who says it to someone from whom nothing is known except Islaam and there is no justification or reason for him to claim that he is a kaafir. So in such a case he becomes a kaafir himself because of that, and this will be explained. So the meaning of the hadith is that his judgement of takfeer (making someone a kaafir) returns upon himself, so what is meant is takfeer not kufr. So it is as if he passed judgement of kuft upon himself since he passed this judgement on one who is like him (ie. a muslim)"[4] Imaam ash-Shawkaanee said, "Judging that a Muslim has left Islaam and entered into Kufr is something that is not fitting for a Muslim who believes in Allaah and the Last Day except with a proof (Burhaan) which is clearer than the daytime sun, since it is established in the authentic hadith reported by a group of Companions that he who says to his brother "O Kaafir!" Then it returns back to one of them." In another wording, "Whoever addresses a man with Kufr, or says 'Enemy of Allaah' and he is not that, then it returns back upon him"[5] So in these ahadith (plural of hadith) and others similar to them, there is the severest reprimand and the greatest warning against hurrying to perform takfeer. Allaah, The Mighty and Majestic says: " ... and such as open their breasts to disbelief ... " [soorah an-Nahl 16:106] So what has to be the case is that the heart embraces kufr and is at peace with it, and the soul is satisfied with it. So the appearance of wicked beliefs only is not to be taken into account here, especially if one is ignorant of the fact that they are contrary to Islaam. Likewise account will not be taken of the appearance of an action of kufr for the one who did not intend to leave Islaam by it and enter into kufr, and likewise account will not be taken of a word spoken by a Muslim which is a saying of kufr, when he does not believe what it means."[6] So where do they stand those who hasten to perform takfeer of the Muslims in relation to the saying of the Messenger sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam: "Abusing a Muslim is open sin and killing him is kufr" [7] And in relation to his saying: "The Muslim is the Brother of a Muslim, he does not oppress or forsake him." [8] Also in relation to his saying: "All of the Muslim to the Muslim is inviolable; his blood, his wealth and his honour." [9] ? Imaam Al-Qurtubee says in his tafseer (exegesis/explanation) of Sooratul Hujuraat: " ... and His (Allaah) saying: "lest your deeds be rendered fruitless while you perceive it not'." [soorah al-Hujuraat 49:2] does not mean that a person becomes a kaafir without knowing since just as a person does not become a believer except through choosing eemaan (faith) over kufr, then likewise a believer does not become a kaafir without intending kufr and choosing it, and there is consensus (ijma') regarding this."[10] Footnotes 1.

  9. Sacred Freedom

    Assalamu alaikum Sacred Freedom ######you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetthewahhabimyth(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/images/bookcover.jpg[/img] "I have read Sacred Freedom (in Arabic) and found it to be beneficial and effective in dealing with its subject matter, particularly for non-Arabic speakers. Answering the thoughts and beliefs of those he is addressing, the author manifests the realities of Islam while clarifying the error of those he is replying to." Shaykh Muhammad 'Umar Bazmool (Ph.D.) Professor,Umm al-Quraa University, Makkah - "Oliver has done an exceptional job of highlighting the flawed logic in use in religious arguments today on all sides of the issue of faith." "In this slim, well-written volume, Oliver presents an Islamist view of the world that should be read widely by people of all faiths for a greater understanding of Islam. Oliver has used passages from the Qur’aan to illustrate points of view that are poorly, if at all, understood by Westerners; his careful work has resulted in an excellent book, eminently readable and clear." - Marlene Satter, ForeWord Magazine "Sacred Freedom: Western Liberalist Ideologies In The Light Of Islam by Haneef Oliver is about conflict between Western attitudes and Islamic thought as manifested in the illusive ideologies of the democratic constructs of Western philosophy. Introducing a fascinating examination of atheism, humanism, pluralism, democracy and secularism, Sacred Freedom thoroughly grasps the wisdom of the Islamic faith and its way of life through many quotes from the Koran, as well as an extensive progression through the pluralistic and material world of the west. A welcome addition to the reading lists for students of Islam, Philosophy, Sociology, Middle Eastern Politics and Culture, Sacred Freedom is a very strongly recommended and informative addition to academic and community library Islamic Studies reference collections." - James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review "Sacred Freedom isolates a number of broad themes within what we can call the Western tradition, and then questions them from an Islamic standpoint. The authority for Haneef Oliver's critique comes, as one would expect, from the Koran. Oliver correctly identifies passages from the Koran that appear to answer the points raised in his critique." - Nick Fielding Senior Correspondent, The Sunday Times Click Below to download sacred_freedom.pdf
