  2. Dealing With Our Brothers And Sisters

    :sl: How is the punishment supposed to be carried out? Have you considered the following verse: The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment. [24:2] Also please read the following from tafsir ibn Kathir: Do not feel pity for Them when carrying out the Prescribed Punishment [æóáÇó ÊóÃúÎõÃúßõãú ÈöåöãóÇ ÑóÃúÃóÉñ Ãöì Ãöíäö Çááøóåö] (Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah,) Meaning, with a ruling prescribed by Allah. So the meaning of the Ayah is: "Do not feel too sorry for them where the laws of Allah are established.'' This does not mean that we should not naturally feel pity when carrying out the punishment. What is prohibited here is the kind of pity that may make the judge ignore the punishment altogether. This is what is not permitted for the judge. Mujahid said, [æóáÇó ÊóÃúÎõÃúßõãú ÈöåöãóÇ ÑóÃúÃóÉñ Ãöì Ãöíäö Çááøóåö] (Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah,) "If the matter is taken to the ruling authority, the punishment has to be carried out and cannot be stopped.'' This was also narrated from Sa`id bin Jubayr and `Ata' bin Abi Rabah. It was recorded in a Hadith: «ÊóÚóÇÃóæõÇ ÇáúÃõÃõæÃó ÃöíãóÇ Èóíúäóßõãú¡ ÃóãóÇ ÈóáóÛóäöí ãöäú ÃóÃó ÃóÞóÃú æóÌóÈó» (Compromise with the matter of prescribed punishment mutually sorting it out among yourselves, for once a matter where the prescribed punishment is required reaches me, I am obliged to carry it out.) Allah's saying: [Åöä ßõäÊõãú ÊõÄúãöäõæäó ÈöÇááøóåö æóÇáúíóæúãö ÇáÇøñÎöÑö] (if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. ) means, then do that, carry out the punishments on those who commit illegal sex, and strike them hard without causing any wound, so that he and others like him will be deterred by the terror of that. In Al-Musnad, it was recorded that one of the Companions said, "O Messenger of Allah, when I slaughter a sheep I feel pity for it.'' He said, «æóáóßó Ãöí Ãáößó ÃóÌúÑñ» (You be rewarded for that.) Carry out the Prescribed Punishment in Public [æóáúíóÔúåóÃú ÚóÃóÇÈóåõãóÇ ØóÂÆöÃóÉñ ãøöäó ÇáúãõÄúãöäöíäó] (And let a party of the believers witness their punishment.) This is more humiliating for the people who are guilty of illegal sex, if they are flogged in front of the people. This is because it is more effective as a deterrent and it conveys the sense of scandal and rebuke. Al-Hasan Al-Basri said, [æóáúíóÔúåóÃú ÚóÃóÇÈóåõãóÇ ØóÂÆöÃóÉñ ãøöäó ÇáúãõÄúãöäöíäó] (And let a party of the believers witness their punishment.) "Publicly.'' [ÇáÒøóÇäöì áÇó íóäßöÃõ ÅöáÇøó ÒóÇäöíóÉð Ãóæú ãõÔúÑößóÉð æóÇáÒøóÇäöíóÉõ áÇó íóäßöÃõåó ÅöáÇøó ÒóÇäò Ãóæú ãõÔúÑößñ æóÃõÑøöãó Ãáößó Úóáóì ÇáúãõÄúãöäöíäó ] (3. The Zani marries not but a Zaniyah or a Mushrikah; and the Zaniyah, none marries her except a Zani or a Mushrik. Such a thing is forbidden to the believers.) Here Allah tells us that the Zani (male who is guilty of illegal sex) does not have intercourse except with a Zaniyah (female who is guilty of illegal sex) or a Mushrikah (female idolator), meaning that no one would go along with him in this action except a sinful woman who is also guilty of Zina, or a Mushrikah who does not think it is unlawful. By the same token, [æóÇáÒøóÇäöíóÉõ áÇó íóäßöÃõåó ÅöáÇøó ÒóÇäò] (and the Zaniyah, none marries her except a Zani) a sinful man who is guilty of fornication, [Ãóæú ãõÔúÑößóÉð] (or a Mushrik) (a man) who does not think it is unlawful. [æóÃõÑøöãó Ãáößó Úóáóì ÇáúãõÄúãöäöíäó] (Such a thing is forbidden to the believers.) meaning, indulging in this, or marrying prostitutes, or marrying chaste women to immoral men. Qatadah and Muqatil bin Hayyan said: "Allah forbade the believers from marrying prostitutes.'' This Ayah is like the Ayah (about marrying slave-girls): [ãõÃúÕóäóÜÊ ÛóíúÑó ãõÓóÜÃöÃóÜÊò æóáÇó ãõÊøóÎöÃóÇÊö ÃóÎúÃóÇäò] (they should be chaste, not committing illegal sex, nor taking boyfriends.) [4:25] And His saying: [ãõÃúÕöäöíäó ÛóíúÑó ãõÓóÇÃöÃöíäó æóáÇó ãõÊøóÎöÃöì ÃóÎúÃóÇäò] (desiring chastity not committing illegal sexual intercourse, nor taking them as girlfriends) [5:5]. Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah bin `Amr, may Allah be pleased with him, said that a man among the believers asked the Messenger of Allah for permission (to marry) a woman known as Umm Mahzul, who used to commit adultery, and who had stated the condition that she should spend on him. So he asked the Messenger of Allah for permission, or he mentioned the matter to him. The Messenger of Allah recited to him: [ÇáÒøóÇäöì áÇó íóäßöÃõ ÅöáÇøó ÒóÇäöíóÉð Ãóæú ãõÔúÑößóÉð æóÇáÒøóÇäöíóÉõ áÇó íóäßöÃõåó ÅöáÇøó ÒóÇäò Ãóæú ãõÔúÑößñ æóÃõÑøöãó Ãáößó Úóáóì ÇáúãõÄúãöäöíäó ] (The Zani marries not but a Zaniyah or a Mushrikah; and the Zaniyah, none marries her except Zani or a Mushrik. Such a thing is forbidden to the believers.) [24:3] Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that Abu Hurayrah said, «áóÇ íóäúßöÃõ ÇáÒøóÇäöí ÇáúãóÌúáõæÃõ ÅöáøóÇ ãöËúáóåõ» (A Zani who has been flogged should not marry anyone except someone who is like him.) A similar report was recorded by Abu Dawud in his Sunan. [æóÇáøóÃöíäó íóÑúãõæäó ÇáúãõÃúÕóäóÜÊö Ëõãøó áóãú íóÃúÊõæÇú ÈöÃóÑúÈóÚóÉö ÔõåóÃóÂÃó ÃóÇÌúáöÃõæåõãú ËóãóÇäöíäó ÌóáúÃóÉð æóáÇó ÊóÞúÈóáõæÇú áóåõãú ÔóåóÇÃóÉð ÃóÈóÃÇð æóÃõæúáóÜÆößó åõãõ ÇáúÃóÜÓöÞõæäó ÅöáÇøó ÇáøóÃöíäó ÊóÇÈõæÇú ãöä ÈóÚúÃö Ãóáößó æóÃóÕúáóÃõæÇú ÃóÅöäøó Çááøóåó ÛóÃõæÑñ ÑøóÃöíãñ ] (4. And those who accuse chaste women, and produce not four witnesses, flog them with eighty stripes, and reject their testimony forever. They indeed are the rebellious.) (5. Except those who repent thereafter and do righteous deeds; (for such) verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.)

    :sl: Just to be clear; my post wasn't directed at brother al faqeer, or anyone who has posted on this thread. I intentionally haven't named the person who it was aimed at.
  4. Banned Members

    :sl: Brother al faqeer, instead of warning me just now you could have spoken to me and tried to understand the issue; by warning me you have only reinforced what I already knew. If you want me to stop posting then go ahead and ban me completely.
  5. Emoticons

    :sl: In the list of emoticons there are some images of Arabic text we can use (such as :sl: and others) is it possible to have the translation of the Arabic appear once the image is hovered over? Perhaps if the translation along with the transliteration were to appear others could even learn them?
  6. Banned Members

    :sl: Although this isn't my thread I would like to add my opinion if that's ok. I've been warned/banned for things I have said which are in fact perfectly fine from an Islamic point of view. For example (and this is only one example) there was a thread not long ago regarding the punishment of apostates where I quoted numerous scholars including Shaykh Munajid, Shaykh Albani, Shaykh Uthaymeen, and Shaykh ibn Jibreen, and because of this I received a message asking to either stop posting what I was posting or leave the forum. I was also told that these scholars are considered to be extremists in the eyes of this forum; even though there are moderators on this forum who also quote these scholars. Yet the other poster who was going against the consensus of scholars was allowed to go on spreading falsehood. I was told that I was scaring non-Muslims away, but all I was doing is quoting what scholars of the past had said. If this forum is about sugarcoating Islam for the non-Muslims then add that to the list of rules so people who want to learn the truth can go elsewhere. If you feel so ashamed about the Laws of Allah :sl: that you would rather lie about them then make it known so others know what this forum was intended for. It would seem that you're banning people based on your own opinions and emotions and then asking why the forum is inactive; well maybe the two are linked? There's no reason why this forum shouldn't be active, it's high in search engines for several terms. Also I asked for an explanation (very politely) as to what was wrong about what I said, and asking why these scholars are seen to be extreme in the eyes of the forum; I received no response. I expect I still wont get a response, in fact this post will probably disappear; which will only prove what I said above was correct. As long as this forum allows ignorance to spread, then I hope it wont be successful. Lastly; my intention wasn't (and isn't) to cause trouble or make anyone look bad, but at the same time I would like to know the reason why the forum is run like this.
  7. The Turkish Islamic Union Is The Only Solution

    :sl: Why are you tying an Islamic union to Turkey? What's so special about the Turks? Let's not get too excited over the recent events where Turkey is being portrayed to be a Islamic country; because it's not. Do you think the Turkish army will allow Turkey to become an Islamic state? It wasn't long ago now that they wanted to bomb their own Masjids in order to carry out their coup.

  11. Muhammad Cartoons

    The reason why there is no picture of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) why is it that there isn't a picture available of the prophet Muhammed[pbuh] anywhere in the world? Praise be to Allaah. Islam came to prevent all means that may lead to shirk or the association of others in worship with Allaah. Among these means is the making of images, so sharee’ah forbids making images, and curses the one who does that, and a strong warning is issued to the one who does that. It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah the Mother of the Believers that Umm Habeebah and Umm Salamah mentioned a church that they had seen in Abyssinia, in which there were images. They mentioned it to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and he said: “Those people, if there was a righteous man among them and he died, they would build a place of worship over his grave and put those images in it. They will be among the most evil of creation before Allaah on the Day of Resurrection.†(narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Salaah, 409). It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came back from a journey and I had placed a curtain of mine that had pictures on it over (the door of) a room of mine. When the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) saw it, he tore it and said, ‘The people who will receive the severest punishment on the Day of Resurrection will be those who try to make the like of Allaah’s creation.’ So we turned it (the curtain) into one or two cushions.†(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Libaas, 5498). It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: “I heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: ‘The people who will be most severely punished on the Day of Resurrection will be the image-makers.’†(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Libaas, 5494). So how could he grant permission to make a picture of him? Hence none of the Sahaabah dared to make a picture or image of him, because they knew the ruling that doing so was haraam. Allaah warns against exaggeration, as He says (interpretation of the meaning): “O people of the Scripture (Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion†[al-Nisaa’ 4:171] And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) warned against doing anything that may involve exceeding the limits concerning him (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). He said: “Do not exaggerate about me as the Christians exaggerated about the son of Maryam, for I am just a slave, so say ‘The slave of Allaah and His Messenger.’†(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, Ahaadeeth al-Anbiya’, 3189). Imaam Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab wrote a chapter entitled “Maa jaa’a ‘an sabab kufr Bani Adam huwa al-ghulw fi’l-saaliheen (What was narrated stating that the reason for the kufr of the sons of Adam was their exaggeration concerning the righteous).â€, in which he said: “In al-Saheeh it is narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said, concerning the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): ‘“And they have said: ‘You shall not leave your gods, nor shall you leave Wadd, nor Suwaa‘, nor Yaghooth, nor Ya‘ooq nor Nasr’ (these are the names of their idols).’ [Nooh 71:23] – “These were the names of righteous men among the people of Nooh. When they died, the Shaytaan inspired their people to set up stone altars in the places where they used to sit, and call them by their names. They did that but they did not worship them, until those people died, then the knowledge was forgotten and they were worshipped.†Ibn al-Qayyim said: “More than one of the salaf said: ‘when they died, the people started to frequent their graves, then they made statues of them, then as time passed they started to worship them.†(Fath al-Majeed Sharh Kitaab al-Tawheed by ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Hasan, p. 219) For this reason there are no pictures of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), because he forbade doing that, lest it lead to shirk. The implication of the testimony that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is that we believe in him and in the message that he brought, even though there are no pictures of him. The believers do not need a picture of him in order to follow him. The description of him that is given in the saheeh reports means that we have no need of his picture. Among the descriptions of him (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) that have been narrated are the following: 1- He (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was the most handsome of face of all people. 2- He had wide shoulders. 3- He was neither tall nor short (of average height). 4- He had a round face with a ruddy complexion. 5- His eyes were intensely black. 6- He had long eyelashes. 7- He was the Seal of the Prophets, the most generous of people in giving, he was the most forbearing and content of all people, he was the most sincere in speech of all people, he had the gentlest nature of all people and was the most easy-going with others. Those who saw him suddenly stood in awe of him and those who mized with him came to love him. Those who described him said they had never seen anyone like him before or since.†See Sunan al-Tirmidhi, al-Manaaqib, 3571 and other books of Sunnah which give descriptions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Undoubtedly the believers wish that they could have met the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Hence it says in the hadeeth narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The people most loved by me among my ummah will be those who would come after me, but every one amongst them would have the keenest desire to catch a glimpse of me even at the expense of his family and his wealth.†(Narrated by Muslim, al-Jannah wa Sifat Na’eemihaa, 5060). Undoubtedly love of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and following him are the means of being brought together with him in Paradise. Part of loving him (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is seeing him in a dream, which means seeing him in his real form. It was reported that Abu Hurayrah said: “I heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: ‘Whoever sees me in a dream will see me when he is awake, for the Shaytaan cannot take my form.’†Abu ‘Abd-Allaah said, Ibn Seereen said: this applies if one sees him in his true form. (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Ta’beer, 6478). And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.

  12. How Close Are We To The End?

    :j: I think that the majority of us can relate to what you have said. I think even the companions may have felt like this at some point and to some degree; and I'll remind you of the hadith. It was narrated that Hanzalah al-Usaydi said: Abu Bakr met me and said: How are you, O Hanzalah? I said: Hanzalah has become a hypocrite. He said: Subhaan Allaah! What are you saying? I said: When we are with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) he reminds us of the Fire and the Garden until it is as if we are seeing them with our own eyes, but when we depart from the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), we attend to our wives and children and businesses, and we forget a great deal. Abu Bakr said: By Allaah, we experience something similar. Abu Bakr and I went and entered upon the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and I said: Hanzalah has become a hypocrite, O Messenger of Allaah. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Why is that?†I said: O Messenger of Allaah, when we are with you, you remind us of the Fire and the Garden until it is as if we are seeing them with our own eyes, but when we depart from you, we attend to our wives and children and businesses, and we forget a great deal. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “By the One in Whose hand is my soul, if you continued as you are when you are with me, and continued to remember (Paradise and Hell), the angels would shake hands with you in your homes and on the streets. But, O Hanzalah, there is a time for this and a time for that†(he said it) three times. Narrated by Muslim (2750) This is actually something I have been thinking more about lately, because -- I'm not going to lie, I too suffer from it. I think that a major contributor to this is the environment we live in. I'm not saying that we aren't at fault or that we can't do more, but I do genuinely think that what surrounds us is a large barrier in the way of us bettering ourselves. We have computers, televisions, games consoles and all these other types of entertainment; and when we have a decision to make as to whether we should spend our time worshiping Allah :sl: or spend our time in entertainment we sometimes get the balance wrong. May Allah forgive us. I think there are some steps we could take to better this. For example maybe setting out some time every day where we read Qur'an for example, so at least we have done something - even if it's only a 30-45 minute session. Perhaps doing this first thing in the morning will get us in the right mindset for the rest of the day, and result in our day being spent in more awareness of Allah :sl: so we will desire to do more. If we are living in a non-Muslim country we should also have the intention of making hijrah. I feel that if I were in a country where I was surrounded by Muslims I'd be doing better as a Muslim, Allah knows best whether that is true but it's something I think about. If we were in a society which enjoins good and forbids evil, and where there is a real brotherhood, I think our situation would be completely different. The way of life which we are living right now is a life of comfort, and I think this disconnects us from Allah :no: and disconnects us from Islaam. Am I saying that a Muslim can't live in comfort whilst also having faith? No I'm not, but when I look at the nature of humans I see a problem for most of us. I think that umAhmad is an example of someone living a simplistic life, speak to her as I'm sure she can spare you some wisdom.
  13. How Close Are We To The End?

    :sl: Allah knows best whether dajjaal will appear within our lifetime or whether he will appear in one hundred years. What we should be doing is looking at ourselves and making sure we are doing what is required from us. It's uncertain whether we will live to see the events mentioned by the Messenger of Allah :no: but what is certain is that we could die at any moment and we must make our preparations for our meeting with Allah :sl:
  14. How Close Are We To The End?

    How can we understand the strength of israel in the context the approach of the onset of the Hour? The prophet(saw)said that the signs would come very quickly, also that he was the beginning of those signs...what is happening right now? how is it possible that israel is so powerfull on earth?. Praise be to Allaah. The portents of the Hour are not all of the same degree, rather some of them are minor and some are major. The major signs are those which, when the first one appears, the others will follow like beads falling from a broken string. But with regard to the minor signs, there is a long period of time between the first and the last of them. The sending of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was one of the minor signs of the Hour, not one of the major portents. It was narrated that Anas said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I and the Hour have been sent like these two.†He said, And he held up his index and middle fingers together. Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6139; Muslim, 2951. Al-Qurtubi said: The first of the portents of the Hours is the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), because he is the Prophet of the end of time. He has been sent and there will be no Prophet between him and the Resurrection. Al-Tadhkirah, p. 111 With regard to the strength of israel (the Jewish state), this is something that has happened to them by the will and decree of Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allaah, and from men†[Aal ‘Imraan 3:112] Allaah has given them power and respite, but that is only so that when He does seize them, He will seize them severely. It was narrated that Abu Moosa (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Allaah gives respite to the wrongdoer until, when He seizes him, He does not let him go.†Then he recited (interpretation of the meaning): “Such is the Seizure of your Lord when He seizes the (population of) towns while they are doing wrong. Verily, His Seizure is painful (and) severe†[Hood 11:102] Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4409; Muslim, 2583. At the time of the Mahdi and when ‘Eesa (peace be upon him) comes down, the Muslims’ victory over the Jews will be complete. It is proven (in the hadeeth) then when the leader of the Muslims, the Mahdi will come to lead them in praying Fajr, ‘Eesa ibn Maryam will come down to them, and the imam will step back so that ‘Eesa can come forward and lead the prayer, but ‘Eesa will put his hand on his back and say, “Go forward and lead the prayer, for the iqaamah was given for you.†So their imam will lead them in prayer, and when he has finished, then ‘Eesa will head towards the Dajjaal, with whom will be seventy thousand Jews. When the Dajjaal looks at him, he will melt like salt in water, and the Messiah ‘Eesa (peace be upon him) will catch up with him at the gate of Lod (which is a town near Jerusalem) and kill him. Then Allaah will cause the defeat the Jews, and there will be nothing that Allaah has created that a Jew hides behind, but Allaah will cause that thing to speak. Rocks, trees, walls and animals will all say, ‘O Muslim, O slave of Allaah, here is a Jew, come and kill him!’ – except for the box-thorn tree (al-gharqad), for it is one of their trees and will not speak.†If the Muslims want to defeat the Jews and all kaafirs, they have to turn back to Allaah and support His religion until Allaah grants them victory, for the Jews are too insignificant for words, but they took advantage of the fact that the Muslims have turned away from their religion. We ask Allaah to bring the Muslims back to their religion and help them follow it properly. And Allaah knows best.

  15. How Close Are We To The End?

    Will we see the Mahdi et al. in our lifetimes? I have read many signs concerning the appearance of the Mahdi, Dajjal, Prophet Isa. Signs that the Holy Prophet (saws.gif ) predicted. These signs have amazed me because they have almost all come true, or are happening at this moment. Signs such as time will pass quickly, drinking wine will increase, fornication will increase, singing will be common.. and so many more. My question is, is that do you think that the coming of any of the three people named above is close and may it occur in our lifetime? Thankyou. Praise be to Allaah. The appearance of these three signs, the Mahdi, the Dajjaal and the descent of ‘Isa (peace be upon him), will undoubtedly happen, as is indicated in the saheeh reports. These three signs will appear within a short space of time, as ‘Isa (peace be upon him) will pray behind the Mahdi, and will kill the Dajjaal, as was reported in the saheeh ahaadeeth. As for when this will happen, Allaah knows best about that. As to whether it will happen soon, the texts seem to indicate this, but the question of whether it will be in our lifetime or after is part of the Unseen, which no one knows except Allaah. The Muslim should seek refuge with Allaah from fitan (tribulations) in general, and from the fitnah (tribulation) of the Dajjaal in particular; he should pray to Allaah, openly and in secret, to help him remain steadfast in this world and the next.
