  3. The Punishment Of Apostate

    salam If someone is Muslim and then leaves Islam and then comes back to Islam, is his Islam accepted? Can only the khalifa pronounce the death penalty?
  4. The Punishment Of Apostate

    salam the punishment of apostasy can be death, but does not have to be. It depends on the situation. We know that Abu Bakr As Saddeeq did not kill all of the apostates during the wars against the apostates. Umar ibn Al Khattab even allowed them to fight, but not to have any leading positions. Treason is usually punished by death, and if slanding the prophet is done then this apostate also deserves death penalty.
  5. salam Brother Ajmal and everyone: Please read this interview which I found in the Anwar Al Awlaki Blog: When the Sahaba under the leadership of Rasulullah started their journey of sacrifice and struggle in the path of Allah they would make mistakes but would be corrected, they would fall down only to stand up again and they were on a continues path of improvement by learning from their past experiences. The mistakes that were committed during the battle of Uhud and then Hunain were valuable lessons that carried the Sahaba up to new levels. Thus, Ibn al Qayyim considers Uhud to be a victory, not a defeat, because of the tremendous amount of lessons we learned from this defeat in the verses that were revealed in sura aal Imran. Allah says: And those who strive for Us - We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed Allah is with the doers of good. [al Ankaboot 69] This ayah is telling us that those who are struggling in the path of Allah will be guided. Ibn Taymiyyah says that both al Imam Ahmad and Ibn al Mubarak used to say if you differ on an issue seek the answer from the mujahideen in the front lines. Bellow is an interview with one of the leaders of the mujahideen in the Caucasus. Even though he is speaking in the context of events in the Caucasus he touches upon important concepts that are relevant to all of us. His words are full of wisdom, and are an example of the guidance Allah is granting to the people of struggle. Mistakes are made, battles are lost, lessons are learned, and our experience, patience and resolove develop as an ummah until Allah bestows His victory on us. Emir Supyan: â€Before declaring the Caucasus Emirate, more important words were said…†Publication time: 28 February 2009, 23:09 Kavkaz Center has interviewed a Naib of Emir (deputy Emir) of Mujahideen in Caucasus Supyan Abdullayev. Naib Supyan talks about the main point in the famous declaration of the Emirate by Emir Dokka Abu Usman, about widespread religious deviances in the Muslim world, about state symbols and borders of the Caucasus Emirate, about the final fate of Russian military bases in Caucasus, about the prospect of negotiations with disbelievers, and about the dear price Palestinian people pay for Hamas delusions. KC: The polemics that erupted in connection with the statement of declaration of the Caucasus Emirate by Emir Dokka Abu Usman has gradually subsided. During a short period of time, people came to know who was who. Many of those who positioned themselves as proponents of Ichkeria’s independence, had been revealed as hardcore opponents of Sharia. As we see now, some of them hurried to go over to the camp of Kadyrovite apostates. All this time they have been spreading many conjectures and slanders, and particularly, tried to present the case as though there existed some disagreements between the Mujahideen, concerning the declaration of the Caucasus Emirate. They put into circulation such words like “Emiratians†and “green commissarsâ€. True, supporters of Mujahideen did not leave it unanswered, calling our opponents “democrats†and “democratiansâ€. Has the position of the Mujahideen on this issue changed? Emir Supyan: Position of the Mujahideen is clear from multiple video appearances and statements of the Mujahideen themselves. This position has not changed, and will not change, all the more under criticism from scared refugees. And all those words like “Emiratiansâ€, “commissars†etc. show only what fills heads of those people, how far they are from Islam. They are ill with hypocrisy. They are not offended or insulted at all, when they are called “democratsâ€, rather the contrary, they are pleased. Such far they are from Jihad and the Mujahideen. Therefore I don’t see any sense in carrying on polemics with them. I would like to draw attention to another issue, which is forgotten in the heat of the debate. After reading articles and watching video materials which were sent to us from Europe and Turkey, I have noticed that the debates are going on specifically around the declaration of the Emirate. And it was thrust by our opponents with a purpose. But our Emir, before declaring the Caucasus Emirate, said in his address more important words. Much more important words, that are a matter of principle. Namely, he said that he rejected everything established by Taghut. He rejected its judgment, its laws, its institutions, borders that it defined for Muslim peoples, the form of government that it imposed. I. e., he said what Allah ordered in the Koran. He said words that can’t be interpreted in two ways, words that are clear and understandable to any believer. The declaration of the Caucasus Emirate became just a logical continuation if the stated position. It was a natural political addition to the basis, to the essence of the statement itself. The statement itself tells about the adherence to monotheism, to Tawhid. It is Tawhid that demands from us rejection of any Taghut. And our verbal rejection means nothing, if there is no action behind it. Because the Religion, first of all, is action. KC: Yes, and this action caused many reproaches and accusations of destroying the statehood, CRI etc.? Emir Supyan: Rather, the well-being of those who parasitized on the Chechen issue was destroyed. Even a person inexperienced in politics understands that Jihad cannot be led by a president, a chancellor, a speaker or a crown prince. Jihad is led by an Imam or an Emir. After a long period of time under the disbelievers’ yoke we have become confused so much, that we even don’t know where our Religion ends and religion of disbelievers begins. Therefore there is a warning for us in the Koran: “O you who believe! If you obey those who disbelieve, they will send you back on your heels, and you will turn back (from Faith) as losers†(Surat Al ‘Imran, 3:149). We have mixed everything, and did it long ago. We talk about prayer, fasting, Sharia, and at the same time we celebrate “new yearâ€, birthday, refer to the international law, U.N. charter and other abnormalities… Moreover, when a Muslim is reproached for consuming wine, he does not deny that it is a sin, that it is forbidden. But when he is told, that participating in Olympic games is shirk, idolatry, he is surprised and starts to ask, how is it possible and what is so bad about it, because it is just a peaceful competition… KC: Yes, in general, it is clear, but nevertheless, explain, what is so bad about it? Emir Supyan: Well, think yourselves, here they go and start a fire on mount Olympus in Greece, it becomes “holyâ€, so many people hustle and conjure around it, it is carried through several thousand kilometers, through many countries, to the country where the games are appointed [to happen]. Finally, at exactly the appointed time, it is brought to the main gas burner and a universal donkeys’ roar of delight shakes the air. Then representatives of different Muslim countries, Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey and others, mix with disbelievers and perform the ritual walk around a stadium, under that fire. At the latest Olympic games in Beijing, Saudi Arabia was walking either first or second in that column. What is interesting, if all those Muslim delegations were asked to participate in the Easter procession, they would refuse. They would say that it is a Christian holiday, we are not allowed. But circumambulation around the “holy†Olympic fire turns out to be a different matter. It turns out that according to their deviant understanding, it is allowed to do that. Take notice that Saudi Arabia likes to position itself as a follower of monotheism. It struggles against amulets, worshiping of graves, stones, trees and other manifestations of idolatry. But they allowed themselves Olympic games and Olympic fire. Obviously, for political benefits, so to speak. KC: Many people wonder, how borders of the Emirate are determined? What are state symbols? Emir Supyan: The flag is the one that is usually in the background when our Emir Abu Usman appears. It is the black flag with the white inscription of formula of Faith. This flag is raised by Mujahideen in every corner of the Muslim world. We have the seal of the Emir. There will be no anthem, no constitution, no coat of arms or other nonsense. We do not intend to become “subjects of international lawâ€. We will not play those games any more. We already passed through this, it was a false path, a path of delusion. KC: But nevertheless, we somehow have to determine the borders. Because Sharia should be established on a specific territory, as far as I understand? Emir Supyan: Yes, it is true. Exactly, now we are establishing Sharia in the territory under our control. And it is forest and mountains from sea to sea. And it is our territory, inshaAllah! We have reinterpreted many concepts recently. KC: But it is a relative control. Emir Supyan: Yes, relative, the same way as disbelievers and apostates have the relative control over the plain part of Caucasus. Control is always relative during a war. Regarding the borders I will say so. People like to prove their historical right for some lands and territories. All conflicts between so called “minor†peoples are caused by those borders. KC: But those conflicts were thrust upon by the imperial policy. Emir Supyan: Even if there would be no imperial policy, territorial disputes would not end. As far I remember, even between villages there were constant discords over those borders. But the borders of the Emirate are a different issue. Emir Abu Usman clearly indicated is his address, that he was not going to determine the borders of the Emirate right now. This issue is open. KC: Elaborate, please. Emir Supyan: I elaborate, the issue of the Emirate borders, or, more exactly, the issue of preliminary borders of the Emirate, this issue will be solved after the first truce with the disbelievers. It means that we intend to hold as much territory, as much we will have strength [to do it], and inshaAllah, we are accumulating it, the strength, and will accumulate. If we will not have strength, then there is no sense to draw any borders at all. KC: Do you think that the Kremlin clique will negotiate with the Mujahideen and offer peace? But they have built more than six major military installations in the territory of Nokhchicho. Around 300 thousand troops are concentrated on permanent basis inside Ichkeria and around. They will hardly resort to negotiations. Emir Supyan: Regarding major military installations and all Russian military with their families, they are not a power now, but a vulnerable target. Any regular army becomes a target during guerilla warfare, both at stationing locations and on the move. And at a moment of a serious political crisis these major military installations will become hostages, like it already happened, when the leader of the Chechen people Jokhar Dudayev came to power. So it is not yet known, who will inherit those installations and military bases in the end. Regarding the negotiations… One of the main results of the right creed are the right reasoning, right understanding and evaluation of what is going on. We don’t have a right to offer peace to disbelievers. It was a major error in our previous policy. Because Allah warns in the Koran: “So be not weak and ask not for peace, while you are having the upper hand. Allah is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds.†(Surat Muhammad, 47:35). Therefore offering peace to disbelievers is ruled out. But it is also said in the Koran: “But if they incline to peace, you also incline to it, and (put your) trust in Allah. Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.†(Surat al-Anfal, 8:61). And they will offer it. But we will not accept any peace. Disbelievers usually offer peace in exchange for rejection of Sharia by Muslims. They say: “We will not bomb and kill you, if you would accept our lawsâ€. KC: So, any deals from our side at the expense of the Religion are ruled out? Emir Supyan: Exactly! This is the right formulation of the question. The war, its goals, results we want to achieve, are now reinterpreted. For the time being, we have been fighting defensive Jihad. But, inshaAllah, the time approaches when we will give disbelievers an ultimatum for their spreading of filth and corruption on earth. KC: There is a question on the tip of the tongue again: nevertheless, what do you think, will there be at least northern borders of the Emirate? Emir Supyan: A Chechen byword is crossing my mind now: “Yetti, yetti, ghiba vakqa izaâ€, or “Ghiba vallats tokha tsunnaâ€. The meaning of this expression is: “Beat him, till he crosses Ghobaâ€, or “till he goes across Ghobaâ€. People usually keep saying so, when they advise to physically punish disobedient children or irrepressible brawlers. Many people do not ponder over the meaning, do not understand, what it means. The point is that Ghoba is Kuban. So our ancestors already preliminarily defined where to chase [the disbelievers]. But I am saying it by the way. We are going to chase the enemy more farther than Ghoba. The main thing is that we and all those who sympathize with us, should understand, that we don’t play anymore in “international lawâ€, “sovereignty†or “peaceful coexistence†with disbelievers. Such understanding about the world, relying on anyone or anything besides Allah, led Muslims to multiple sufferings. KC: Yes, unfortunately, the examples are not so hard to find. It is unpleasant to listen to political pronouncements of Hamas leaders. SubhanAllah, they are relying on the West, on the European Union, on Obama! Trying to emphasize their adherence to democracy, they reached a point when they handed over a Mujahid to Egyptian secret services, calling him an “al-Qaeda memberâ€. Emir Supyan: Delusions and illusions of Hamas cost dearly to the Palestinian people. The Zionists have been committing outrage in that land for 60 years, they have been exterminating Muslims in most barbaric way. The Zionists regularly bomb and attack, carry out punitive raids and large-scale military operations. At the same time, Hamas has not organized elementary bomb shelters for the people. It means that they did not prepare for a serious war. And you know, there is no such corner in the Muslim world, that would be so unanimously stuffed with money by Arab states[as Palestine]. KC: In the end, what would you wish to young Mujahideen and those who sympathize with our fight? Emir Supyan: I would like to remind myself, in the first place, and then to all our brothers, that the main purpose of our life is to deserve pleasure of Allah. To remember, that victory is the same temptation, as is defeat. Therefore victory should not cause high opinion of ourselves, and defeat should not drive to despair. The path is chosen, and we will not turn away from it. If the goal of Jihad is elevating the Word of Allah, then we should strain every effort just for that. And the result is with Allah, praise be to Him, the Most High.

  7. salam At least don't turn it to an Eid. If someone follows the Sunnah throughout the year and then does the same during that day or even more then it might be alright, but if someone just plans to special act on that day, but it is not a tradition then I see a bid problem. People might save their good deeds only for this day.
  8. Wondering About Idolatory

    salam The Oneness of God Almighty (Tawheed) can be categorized into four sections: 1. The First category of Tawheed is God's Oneness in Worship: This aspect of God's Oneness means that there is no creation/nothing worthy of worship than God Almighty. It is not allowed to worship idols, the sun, the moon, or a human being. This also means that the acts of worship are only for God Almighty. It is therefore not allowed to bow down to an idol or a human being be he a king or a pope. Just the building of Idols can cause eternal punishment in Hell. Oppressors, the builders of Idols, and the polytheists are the first people who will enter Hellfire. They will not have a trial on the day of judgement, but they will just be poured in to hellfire as we throw trash into the trash can. 2. The Second Category of Tawheed is God's Oneness with regard to his names and attributes: The best way to describe this aspect of Tawheed is by this sentence: "Nothing is comparable to God Almighty". This means that the Creator does not share any of his names and attributes with his creatures. This means it is shirk, association, to claim that God Almighty has some qualities of a creation or that the creation have the same qualities of the Creator. However, if God tells us that he has Two Hands then we believe that he literally has two hands, but the only thing that resembles it is the name. Therefore, we say that He has Hands in the manner that suites His Majesty. When He tells us that he is the Living God which is one of his names then we believe with absolute certainty that He Lives in a manner that suites His Majesty. In Hinduism, the names and attributes became different deities. They worship Vishnu who is God the Preserver and Brahma who is God the Creator, and Shiva who is God the Destroyer. These three attributes of God also exist in Islam, but we do not separate them and worship them separately and make for each name a different statue. The fact that they make for each name a different statue shows that they divide the names of God into three entities and then worship them differently. They do not worship Brahman directly, but through such idols which represent the different attributes of God Almighty. The Greek also did the same by dividing the names and attributes of God. It became the God of Love, the God of War etc. I am sure that it started in a similar manner like Hinduism, but then turned into clear polytheism. Anthropomophism is also very much common in Hinduism. Pantheism is blasphemy also in this catergory of tawheed because it means that God is All and All is God. This is severe blasphemy and someone who does this will enter Hellfire and will never come out. Even panentheism is forbidden and association of partner to God because claiming that God lives inside the trees or inside the Human being or can become God Incarnate is blasphemy. 3. The third aspect of Tawheed is God's Oneness in his Lordship: We only take the law from him and we obay only Him. If there is a conflict between a man-made law and a God-made law then we obay the Law of God only. This also means that we don't take any one as Lord beside God Almighty. When we use idols as intermediaries and or to benefit from worship then it is blasphemy in this catergory. It is even blasphemy to wear an amulet or charm so that it might help in worship. This is association another Lord beside Allah. God Almighty tells us to worship Him directly without any intermediaries, because we don't need them to benefit from our prayers. These do not benefit. In some religions they are already so far that they claim that the God the Father cannot forgive us unless we believe and worship Jesus and the worship of Jesus is not enough, unless we do invocations to Mary. This is just an example. No human being lives and dies, no leaf falls from the tree without the permission of God Almighty. 4. The fourth aspect is actually a subcategory of the third, but I state it as a separate aspect because it involves all three aspects of tawheed. We don't know how God Almighty wants us to worship Him and he created us for the sole purpose of worshipping Him and therefore we He has the Right to Tell us How to Worship Him. What He says is the correct why, because He is the one who has the right to be worshipped. Therefore, he has the right to tell us how to worship Him. For this purpose, he sent to us his prophets and messengers. We follow the worship of the prophets and messengers, because they studied the worship directly from the angels and they received direct revelation with the messege how to worship God Almighty. Therefore, we follow the prophets and messengers in everything. If you do something different than the prophets and messengers in worship then you are saying the they lied and the God's Revelation is fallible. If you disobay one prophet then you disobay all 124000 prophets that set foot on the face of the earth.
  9. salam The statement that the Prophet and the Sahaba did not celebrate the birthday of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because they were already with him is not valid. There are sects who already commit shirk with the name of Muhammad. We cannot ignore that. We have to block the door for Satan and he can use this seemingly small thing to become something horrible. The first shirk came to be because Iblees put in the minds of people that the righteous people are gone so to remember them they should make statues not for worship but for remembrance. Now we celebrate the birthday of a prophet and this can lead to the same direction. Why don't you celebrate the birthday of the sahaba or the birthday of Abdullah ibn Az-Zubayr, radiallahu anhu, althought he was the first person born in Islam. Even the people celebrated that child. Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala told us that he perfected for us the religion and he did not include the celebration of birthdays. Celebrating birthday of Muhammad alone is a religious ibada and not a cultural tradition.
  10. Viva Palestina Convoy

    salam Yvonne Ridley reports from Viva Palestina 9th March 2009 GAZA OR BUST The last 24 hours have probably been the blackest since the Viva Palestina convoy set off from London. Yesterday the convoy members became the target of an orchestrated wave of violence first started by Egyptian police and then culminating in vicious attacks by unknown thugs. The end result was a number of peace activists whose only aim is to take humanitarian aid into war torn Gaza were treated in hospital for head injuries. Mercifully the string of casualties was not too serious but the experience denied us the chance of fulfilling our mission to deliver aid to Gaza yesterday. And dramatic images of the rioting and attacks could not be relayed to Press TV viewers because someone sabotaged the satellite van by deliberately cutting through a vital cable which would have beamed the shameful attacks across the world. However, every cloud has a silver lining and I would like to take this opportunity of personally thanking the Egyptian authorities and those dark forces who tried to derail Viva Palestina. The event has only served to make us stronger, unite and bond us together more and created a wave of international media interest in Viva Palestina. I think it would be fair to say that when you bring a diverse group of 300 plus people together on a gruelling mission to cover 5,000 miles driving across North Africa the result can result in a less than harmonious state of affairs. To be frank, there was friction and infighting and some of us generally got on each other’s nerves as you would when you are confined to close quarters with challenging living, sleeping and eating conditions. However, the deliberate bloody-mindedness of the Egyptian authorities did something we had failed to do for ourselves … it caused us to unite, bond and emerge stronger than ever from underneath the rows of police batons, bricks, bottles and stones. The trouble began when the police - who were only obeying their orders - tried to break up the convoy into small groups of medical and non medical aid. We were told the first would go through the Rafah crossing while the latter would go through an israeli checkpoint. This was never going to be accepted by anyone on board the convoy. Our aim from the outset was simple: Rafah or bust. Giving aid to the people of Gaza has nothing to do with the israelis and I do wish they would stop trying to make themselves centre stage in an affair that does not involve Tel Aviv. As we dug in our heels about the convoy being physically divided, the authorities decided there was only one solution - batter us into submission, after all that is what police states do. And so, when the police tried to get physical, the convoy members followed their natural instincts and used passive resistance to defend themselves. Egyptian police are obviously not used to confronting stroppy westerners in such large numbers and so they retreated while a second wave was sent in. Hundreds of riot squad officers, wearing visors, carrying shields and batons tumbled in to one of the two car parks in a large town centre compound in the port of al Arish and set about the unarmed peace activists. They too were heroically repelled and what followed was an uneasy stand off as some convoy members received medical attention. The net result was scores of vehicles had been able to escape the compound in which they were being held behind metal police barriers. It was a minor victory and what followed was a very British response - the lads decided to have a game of football. I did try to persuade the Egyptian police to join in stressing they would have much more fun kicking a ball instead of kicking my comrades, but they seemed reluctant to let go of their batons. As the night drew in the convoy leader George Galloway who was 40 kilometres down the road, was made aware of the battle of al Arish and so he refused to cross the Rafah Border in to Gaza and returned to the convoy. It was a hard call to make as the international media had gathered at Rafah for a party that never happened. As usual the israelis also played to stereotype by shelling and bombing parts of Gaza. By the time Britain’s best known parliamentarian reached the compound night had fallen and bright stadium-style lights illuminated the two car parks. Suddenly the area was plunged into darkness by a powercut which coincided with a brick, bottle and stone attacks on the convoy members by youths in their late teens and 20s. Seconds before the lights went out some convoy members saw a couple of unidentified men scrawling anti-Hamas slogans on lorries. The lights remained out for some minutes, during which time the vicious attack was unleashed - the whole proceedings failed to warrant one single Egyptian police officer to swing his baton into action. Those who had wielded their sticks with such a passion before, stood impassively by and watched the onslaught. The power kicked back in again and the bright lights illuminated the scene to reveal several convoy members lying dazed and confused, blood dripping from gaping head wounds. While they were ferried to hospital for treatment, there was a second powercut and a repeat of the violence. Once again the police stood by and watched the thugs launch their attacks on unarmed and defenceless members of Viva Palestina. Galloway, incandescent with rage held an urgent meeting with the governor of the region and secured assurances this would not happen again. He also secured a pledge that the convoy would be allowed to make its way to the Rafah crossing for 6am on Monday. We’re now only a few hours away from that deadline and it remains to be seen if the governor will keep his word. But regardless of what he decides I want to thank him for pulling every single member of Viva Palestina into one, united front. Thanks to him and the cack-handed police operation, Viva Palestina has emerged refocussed and stronger than ever with one, determined goal: Rafah or bust. And it will happen, inspite of the best efforts of Tel Aviv meddling and Egyptian authorities’ bullying. The people united can never be defeated. Gaza, next stop. * British journalist Yvonne Ridley and award-winning film-maker Hassan al Banna Ghani are on the Viva Palestina convoy making a documentary about the journey from London to Gaza. her website is you are not allowed to post links yetyvonneridley(contact admin if its a beneficial link) and you can follow her updates by Twitter or Facebook (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_muslimmatters(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/2009/03/09/the-siege-on-gaza-has-been-broken/"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_muslimmatters(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/2009/03/09/the-si...as-been-broken/[/url]
  11. Arrogance

    Assalamu alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa barakatu Arrogance is a dangerous disease and one grain of arrogance in the heart is enough to be refuse to enter Jannah. If someone has one grain of arrogance in heart then he/she will be so far away from Jannah that he/she cannot even smell the scent of the fragrance of paradise which can be smelled from 40 years away. Traits and Symptomes of Arrogance: Rejecting the message of Islam, either openly (by verbal renunciation) or by deed: It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allah Bin Mas’ood [may Allah be pleased with him] that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “No one who has an atom’s-weight of arrogance in his heart will enter Paradise.†A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, what if a man likes his clothes and his shoes to look good?†He said, “Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty. Arrogance means rejecting the truth and looking down on people.†[sahih Muslim] Rejecting any part of the Quran or Prophetic narrations silently (i.e. not saying anything outwardly, but obstinately refusing to obey Allah’s commands over time) or by open antagonism - verbally announced kufr and rejection - is indicative of arrogance. Pharaoh, who is repeatedly quoted in the Quran for his arrogance, said: “O my people! Is not mine the dominion of Egypt, and these rivers flowing underneath me. See you not then? Am I not better than this one [Moses], who is “Mahin†[i.e. has no honor nor any respect, and is weak and despicable] and can scarcely express himself clearly?†[surah Al-Zukhruf: 51, 52] “O chiefs! I know not that you have an ilah (a god) other than me.†[surah Al-Qasas: 38] “I am your lord, most high.†[surah Al-Nazi'at: 24] Avoiding talking to, or eating with, poor or lower-class people; treating them brusquely and rudely: “I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay.†- Iblees to Allah. [surah Al-A'raf 7:11-12] “Get me a fork, you [bleep!]….†shouts a man at the waiter. “Get out of my way, you [bleep!]…†shouts the angry woman behind the wheel at an old peasant lady crossing the street. {In case you’re wondering, “bleep†indicates a sound used to censor curse-words on screen.} The second trait of arrogance described in the hadith above is “looking down on peopleâ€. How you deal with servants and poor people, especially, indicates your true nature and ‘akhlaaq‘. Do you ignore them unless you need them for some work? Do you stay physically away from them, lest their germs or smell get on your ’spotless’ persona? Do you consider yourself better than them, because you are more educated, well-off, hygienically clean, civilized and better-mannered? Are they like the fly that buzzes around your head - to be rudely whacked away if it gets too close? If so, this is because of arrogance. “And he had property (or fruit) and he said to his companion, in the course of mutual talk: ‘I am more than you in wealth and stronger in respect of men.’†[surah Al-Kahf 18:34] Considering some people lowly solely on the basis of their race or ethnicity: “And turn not your face away from men with pride, nor walk in insolence through the earth. Verily, Allah likes not any arrogant boaster.†[surah Luqman 31:18] Another way of looking down on people, aside from the division of rich vs. poor, is to consider yourself better-looking, more talented, more capable, more attractive, or from a better lineage and social class than others you interact with. This latter trait, which leads to deep-rooted ethnic prejudice and conflict, is the most apparent among Muslims, even so-called pious ones, when choosing which families to socialize with, or which families to marry into. It’s not uncommon to witness families with jobs at higher grades refusing to meet with families whose breadwinner is at a lower-grade job, no matter how nice the latter might be. Also, for most, the “blood-is-thicker-than-water†syndrome affects their better judgment to such an extent, that they’d overlook grave vices of kith and kin (those part of their “baradari“) but nit-pick the smallest errors and misgivings of another ethnic group. Usage of derogatory words to label other ethnic minorities is another grave sin which this arrogance gives rise to. E.g. “akhrote“, “paaparhâ€, “painduâ€, “karanta“, “chuptta“, “kalla†etc. Loving to receive praise and adulatory attention e.g. having people stand up for you when you enter: The Prophet Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] disliked it when people would stand upon his arrival to a gathering [Tirmidhi]. This is indicative of humility; it, therefore, goes without saying that if you expect or desire people to stand up for you when you arrive, it is because of arrogance. The same goes for desiring to show off, or to receive praise for your achievements from people; for this purpose, displaying trophies, prizes, and plaques, especially on walls where people will see them, is a commonly-witnessed trend among some homes. Dressing nicely solely with the intention of outshining others: It was narrated that Abu Hurairah [may Allah be pleased with him] said: “The Prophet said (or Abul-Qasim [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said): “Whilst a man was walking, dragging his garment with pride, with his hair nicely combed, Allah caused the earth to swallow him and he will go on sinking in it until the Day of Resurrection.â€" [sahih Al-Bukhari - 3297; Sahih Muslim - 2088] If you dress up nicely as a means of expressing gratitude for Allah’s blessings upon you, it is praiseworthy, as indicated by the hadith that states that ‘Allah loves beauty’; however, if your intention behind trying to look good is to outshine others or to look the best among them, this is because of pride or arrogance. Waiting to be greeted instead of initiating the salam: Are you eager to initiate the salam greeting with a Muslim when you meet them? Or do you wait, and expect the other person to turn towards you, or worse, to leave what they are doing to walk towards you with an outstretched hand, to greet you with salam? Remind yourself that the one who is more humble always initiates the salam between two Muslims. Expecting special attention at gatherings: How often do you feel offended if people do not give you special treatment at a social gathering? Do you want to be seated at the head of the table, on the best sofa, or in the strategically most important place? Do you get upset if your host does not personally serve each dish to you, or does not walk you to the gate when you leave? Dominating the conversation with “me, myself and Iâ€: “And be moderate (or show no insolence) in your walking, and lower your voice. Verily, the harshest of all voices is the braying of the ######.†[surah Luqman: 19] Do you seem to go on and on about yourself in a monologue when having a normal, everyday conversation with some one else? How much interest do you take in your listeners’ lives? How many times do you show concern, ask questions about their well-being, or give an intent, sympathetic ear to their problems? Do people call you up often, or come to visit without your inviting them? Or is it the opposite? Taking immediate offense if criticized: Another indication of the presence of arrogance is to not take criticism, especially if it is well-intended and directed in a polite and appropriately-phrased manner, too well; to get immediately defensive, rude and hostile. Humility shows itself most beautifully in the way a person hurries to accept their mistake and to apologize even if they are not in the wrong. Refusing to sit on the floor, if necessary, or to eat simple, coarse food: Several times, one is faced with a situation in which they might need to sit on the floor, particularly when attending a dars or religious lecture, in which all the seats have already been taken. Arrogance will rear its head in the form of an aversion to sitting on the floor, physically below others. Also, eating simple, coarse food such as lentils, bhaji or leftovers is considered too lowly, or not up-to-the-mark, if traces of arrogance exist in a person’s heart. I once read somewhere that wearing worn-out, but presentable clothing, eating coarse food (e.g. bran bread with yogurt or cheese) and sitting in the company of the poor and downtrodden people of society was a way (sunnah) of the pious predecessors, including most of the Companions. In our homes however, most of us make the maids eat on the floor, in separate cutlery that is not used by the members of the household. We do not even like it if the maid sits at the same level as we do, e.g. on the sofa. “Don’t drink from that glass! The maid uses it.†Hanging a garment so low that it drags behind on the floor: It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allah ibn ‘Umar [may Allah be pleased with him] said: The Messenger of Allah [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said: “Whoever lets his garment drag along the ground out of pride, Allah will not look at him on the Day of Resurrection.†Abu Bakr said: “Sometimes my garment slips down on one side, unless I pay attention to it.†The Messenger of Allah [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “You are not doing that out of pride.†[sahih Al-Bukhari, 3465] It was narrated that Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri and Abu Hurairah [may Allah be pleased with them both] said: “The Messenger of Allah [peace and blessings of Allah upon him] said that Allah says: “Might is my garment and pride is my cloak; whoever seeks to compete with me concerning them, I will punish him.â€" [sahih Muslim, 2620] If you know of any other traits witnessed in day-to-day living that are indicative of arrogance, please leave a comment below to inform the readers about it. Insha’ Allah, in my next post, I will be covering some Islamic remedies for this disease of the heart.

  15. Description Of Paradise

    salam Imagine we are there! I would like to know if all what he says about Jannah is confirmed by Qur'an and Sunnah, especially the part where Dawood and Muhammad recites Qur'an and then Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala speaks his own words of Suratur Rahman. I need the confirmation for this information.
  16. Destiny And The Dua

    salam I know a hadith were there was a Muslim who did good deeds day in and day out, but received punishment in hellfire, because he felt so comfortable through his good deeds and behaviour that he did not feel that he should ask Allah for forgiveness. He never asked Allah for forgiveness, so Allah does not bestowed mercy on him and his abode is hellfire. We enter Jannah only by the mercy of Allah. And this is what we should ask for - His Mercy. Let me explain qadr: Every path we go is already predestined and Allah has the foreknowledge of what we would do. On the other side he gave us freewill. This freewill makes us responsible for our action. We walk along a road which is symbol for predestined path. During the path we might raise our hands out of freewill to make du'aa and ask him for a U-turn if the path is leading away from righteousness. We walk and walk and walk which is something we cannot change unless Allah makes a change for us. We might walk until will stand at a crossroad/intersection. There our freewill comes into place. We have to make the free choice which direction we go. The arrows and other traffic signs may be symbol for the guidance which one is the straight path - Qur'an and Sunnah. If we are heedless then we miss the signs etc. At the crossroad we choose the direction. In our life there might be an intersection with multiple directions and only one or more that one can be the right choice. It is our freewill to choose between right and wrong, but Allah know all the options and he knows what happens if we choose this or that path. The labyrinth is already set and Allah knows the whole labyinth.

  21. Words Of Encouragement

    salam Out of the oceans of their virtues, my pen's ink only drops a few. Only a fleeting glimpse of the Sahabah's greatness is in this poem to view. Abbaad bin Bishr was getting shot with arrows, yet he still didn't want to break his salat. Who are we compared to him? We complain when the room we pray in is a little hot. Our Masaajid are empty, even though we drive fancy Cadillacs. The Sahabah went to the Masjid for every prayer, even though many had no cloths on their backs. The Kuffar put massive rocks on Bilal's chest in the burning dessert sun, All he said was "Ahad, Ahad" and from Islam he did not run. They strove in the path of Allah, doing Jihad even in the fierce dessert heat. Who are we compared to them? We can hardly make it to the Masjid right down the street! Sumayyah loved Allah and for that the kuffar speared her most private part. She was the first shaheed of our ummah, to the end she had true love of Allah in her heart. Who are we next to Sumayyah? We hide our faith in fear of being teased. We get a little laugh from a kaffer, and we turn away from Allah displeased. Khabbab bin Alarat was burnt on hot coals until his blood put out the heat. How ashamed should we be? While listening to a khutbah, we find it hard to just stay on our seats. Most of them were starving, but this didn't keep them away from any part of the deen. We have tons of rice and lamb, but nonetheless, in us, Islam can hardly be seen. Mus'ab Ibn Umair's hands were both severed when he was the flag bearer, yet with his bloody forearms, he still kept the flag up high. Yet how is our condition? We can barely even give dawwah because we feel too shy! If even the breeze grew a little stronger, they would go to the Masjid fearing that it may be the last day. Do we even notice what's going on around us, or are we too busy thinking of our weekly pay? Abu Bakr gave all of his wealth for Allah in His path. Though if we were asked to do this, we would probably laugh. Out of their fear of Allah, they had tear stains on their cheeks. Out of our love of the dunyah, we stay away from the Masjid and go shopping in the boutiques. After being captured in Jihad, Ibn Hudhafah was glad that he might be boiled alive. Yet what about us? For Allah, many just frown when they are asked to strive. This noble man cried in pleasure that he might be boiled alive for Allah! Next to him we seem like hypocrites, or worse, many of us don't even do our salah! Even when Umar was khalifah, his clothes still had many tears. Yet when we have even the littlest job, we end up with many clothes that we don't even wear. They established the empire of Islam, they spread the deen throughout all the lands. Yet when it comes to us, we have trouble obeying the simplest of Allah's commands. Aisha was thirsty for knowledge, she was one of our greatest scholars. She was busy searching for wisdom, yet we're busy searching for dollars With it's last drops of ink, this poem is coming to an end. But before I let you go, there is one thing that I do recommend: We can sit around and talk, we can reminisce about them with much ease. But unless we actually try to be like the Sahabah, our words just drift away with the breeze.
