ALLAAMAH SHA’RAANI’S NASEEHAT FOR THE MERRYMAKING JALSAH MOBS
Proffering Naseehat to the vile molvis, miserable sheikhs and the bogus khaanqah ‘spiritual guides’, Allaamah Abdul Wahhaab Sha’raani (Rahmatullah alayh) of the 10th Islamic century, begins with the citation of the following Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam):

“By Allah! If you knew what I know (of Maut, the Qabr and the Aakhirah), you will laugh little and cry much; you will not derive pleasure from your wives in your beds, and you will flee into the wilderness beseeching Allah Azza Wa Jal (for refuge and safety).”

Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu anhu) narrated:

“It is indeed surprising to see a man laughing while Jahannam is ahead of him, and it is surprising to see a man happy while Maut is hotly pursuing him.”

Allaamah Sha’raani says: “Whoever saw Hasan Basri (Rahmatullah alayh), he would conclude that he (Hasan Basri) had just emerged from a momentous calamity. This was because of the grief observable on him.”
Hadhrat Fudhail Bin Iyaadh (Rahmatullah alayh) said:

“There are numerous people lost in laughter (and merrymaking) while their kafan has just arrived.”
Hadhrat Ibn Marzooq (Rahmatullah alayh) said:

“A man who claims to be remorseful and grief-stricken for his sins, but then indulges in delicious foods is a liar.”
Presenting the tafseer of the Qur’aanic Aayat: ‘It (the Book of Deeds) does not omit any sagheerah (sin) or kabeerah (sin), but it records it.’, Imaam Auzaai’ (Rahmatullah alayh) said that the meaning of sagheerah is tabassum (to smile), and the meaning of kabeerah is qahqahah (loud laughter).” Commenting on this tafseer, Allaamah Sha’raani said that in the context of Imaam Auzaai’s tafseer, tabassum means such smiling in which there is sound although substantially less than qahqahah (loud laughter).
Thaabit Bunaani (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “A Mu’min laughs only when he is oblivious (ghaafil) of Maut.”
Aamir Bin Qais (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “Those who indulge in much laughter on earth, will cry much in Jahannam.”
Saeed Bin Abdul Azeez (Rahmatullah alayh) had not laughed for forty years until his death.

Hadhrat Anas Bin Maalik (Radhiyallahu anhu) said: “In a gathering, there is a shaitaan with every person who laughs.”
There is israaf (waste) in everything. Wahab Bin Al-Ward (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “Laughing without israaf is to smile without exposing the teeth. Clothes without israaf are garments sufficient to cover the body and shield it from the weather conditions. Food without israaf, is food which is sufficient for eliminating hunger and which does not fully fill the stomach.”
Abdul Bin Abu Zaid (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “When some among the Sahaabah began joking (being merry), the following Qur’aanic Verse was revealed: ‘What! Has the time not arrived for the people of Imaan that their hearts become tender for the Thikr of Allah and for the truth He has revealed? Do not be like those who have been given the Kitaab before you (i.e. the Yahood and Nasaara). Then after a long period lapsed (and they became desensitized) their hearts hardened. Numerous of them are faasiqoon.” (Al-Hadeed, Aayat 16)

Hadhrat Aishah (Radhiyallahu anha) narrated that once when Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) entered the Musjid he found some Sahaabah laughing. With his mubaarak face reddening, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Are you laughing despite your Rabb not having revealed that you are forgiven? Concerning your laughter, Allah Ta’ala has revealed this verse……. (as above).”

Smitten with remorse, the Sahaabah asked: “What is the kaffaarah (expiation) for us having laughed?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Cry as much as you have laughed.”

Once when some people from Yamaama were by Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiyallahu anhu), this verse was recited. The people began to weep. Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiyallahu anhu) commented: “We also used to cry like this. Then there came such people whose hearts were hard.” (i.e. Like the jalsah merrymaking mobs).
Allaamah Sha’raani (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “There are two factors which distinguish the Ahlullah (People of Allah) from the Ghair Ahlullah (those who are not the people of Allah, but are the people of the devil). The People of Allah are perpetually focused on the Aakhirah, and they engage in making preparations for the Aakhirah.” These two features of the Ahlullah are not to be found in the merrymaking Ghair Ahlullaah jalsah mobs who indulge in festivities, eating, laughter, waste and riya.

From the aforegoing Naseehat of Allaamah Sha’raani and from many Qur’aanic Aayaat and Ahaadith, the villainy and hurmat of the glut of jalsahs should be quite manifest to every sincere seeker of the Haqq. The hifz jalsah held at the Hilal Musjid in Durban as well as all other jalsahs in our time are all in diametric conflict with the teachings and spirit of the Deen. In fact, these jalsahs are immoral and the participants are callously obscene.

How is it possible for Muslims of healthy Imaan to indulge in wasteful merrymaking practices such as are advertised on their posters when the Ummah at large is suffering in their millions. The ulama and the so-called hadhrats are indeed most callous and obscene in organizing and participating in these khuraafaat jalsahs of riya, takabbur and israaf. Their hearts have become hard like those of the Yahood and Nasaara as mentioned in the Qur’aan Majeed specifically in relation to merrymaking.

Muslim refugees are literally freezing to death currently. They are without shelter, without even a small tent to shield themselves against the freezing weather conditions. But these molvis and sheikhs with their obese bodies and gluttonous appetites for sumptuous meals in emulation of Hindu Brahmin priests, are satanically ghaafil about the plight of the Ummah despite them teaching in their darul jahals. Ahaadith such as:

“The Muslimoon (the Ummah) are like one person. If the eye pains the whole body is affected, and if the head pains, the whole body is affected.”

While they teach such Ahaadith and are fully aware of the command implied, they are recklessly oblivious in their shaitaani ghaflat. And the same applies to those who squander large sums of money on so-called ‘umrah’ trips which are nothing but haraam holidaying and merrymaking. While they may succeed in their self-deception they cannot fool Allah Ta’ala. They will rue their callousness at the time of their Maut.

GAZA SOCCER TEAM

THE HARAAM GAZA SOCCER TEAM

IT IS HARAAM TO CONTRIBUTE

FUNDS FOR HOSTING THIS HARAAM TEAM

QUESTION

A soccer team from Gaza has been invited to South Africa during March of this year. The hosts are appealing for R180,000 to host the team. They are also appealing for accommodation and other expenses for the team of 35 boys. Is it permissible to contribute for this team?

ANSWER

Contributing money or anything else towards this haraam soccer team is Haraam.  It is not permissible to participate on or to facilitate this team in any way whatsoever.

 

While millions of Muslims are languishing in extreme poverty and in dire straits of living right on the door steps of Gaza, and while Gaza itself is constantly under Israeli threat, the shaitaani rulers of Gaza allow a shaitaani haraam team to travel, waste money, indulge in haraam sport, etc.

 

The evil life style of the Gaza people provides the valid explanation for   Allah’s Punishment on them. Instead of turning more towards Allah Ta’ala in their miserable plight, they are drifting further from Allah Ta’ala into the camp of shaitaan. The lifestyle and attitude of the Gaza people justify Allah’s Athaab which has settled on them.

 

The people of Gaza are immoral. They have not acquired any lessons from the Israeli-inflicted miseries. They exploit each other; usurp the properties of each other. The Shariah’s Law of Inheritance is most wickedly pillaged and plundered by Palestinians. The one who is in control of the properties of the deceased usurps it. Heirs are denied their right of inheritance. This disease is universal in Palestine. Palestinians themselves have reported such satanic usurpation of their properties. The rulers of Gaza facilitate and entrench this usurpation of the properties of others. That is why Allah Ta’ala has handed the land to the Yahood. They have absolutely no regard for the Shariah. Immoral dancing and celebrating have become their customs. They do not deserve to be the caretakers of Jerusalem or the entire Holy Land of Palestine. This is Allah’s decree, hence He has awarded Palestine to the Yahood.

 

In the following Aayat is a somber warning for the people of Gaza as well as for all other Muslim communities who are grounded in immorality and degradation of every kind imaginable:

 

“We shall most surely give them to taste of the lesser punishment, not the greater punishment, for perhaps they will (understand) and return (to the Path of the Deen).”

“Who is viler than the person who is reminded of the Laws of Allah, then he turns away? Verily We shall extract vengeance from the criminals.” (Qur’aan)

They are not heeding the signs and the warnings. Therefore, the Greater Punishment is awaiting them.

 

With their haraam soccer teams and preponderance of vice, the people of Gaza are criminals.

 

MUSLIMS SHOULD NOT CONTRIBUTE ANY THING FOR HOSTING THE HARAAM TEAM.

CORRUPT IVF FATWA

FATWA ZIGZAGERY

A CORRUPT IVF FATWA

Question

Kindly peruse this ruling. It appears from this ruling that there is leeway for the permissibility of IVF. Is this correct? Is artificial insemination permissible at any time?

THE FATWA OF MUFTI EBRAHIM DESAI

Choosing the gender of a child with IVF – Is it Halaal?

QUESTION

“Can I make use of a type of IVF where a couple can choose the gender e.g. boy or girl, is this Halaal?

ANSWER:

Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran,

لِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضِ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُ يَهَبُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ إِنَـثاً وَيَهَبُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ الذُّكُورَ – أَوْ يُزَوِّجُهُمْ ذُكْرَاناً وَإِنَـثاً وَيَجْعَلُ مَن يَشَآءُ عَقِيماً إِنَّهُ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ (الشوري:49)

Translation: “To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills. He bestows female upon whom He wills and bestows male upon whom He wills. Or He bestows both males and females, and He renders barren whom He wills. Verily, He is the All-Knower and is Able to do all things.”

(Comment by The Majlis: So far, the fatwa is correct.)

Human beings by nature have desires and wants. Almighty Allah is the Knower of all things. He knows exactly what is best for us. If He decides to give us something, there can be no doubt regarding it being best for us. Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran,

وَعَسَى أَن تَكْرَهُواْ شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ وَعَسَى أَن تُحِبُّواْ شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَّكُمْ وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ (البقرة:216)

Translation: “But perhaps you hate a thing, but it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing, but it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.”

It is a fundamental principle of Islamic Jurisprudence that one must avoid imposing upon one’s physical body actions that are usually considered to be unnatural and unconventional unless there is a dire necessity for doing so. (This is correct – The Majlis) For instance, the human body is accustomed to acquiring its food and drink orally through the gullet, but there are times when, due to certain ailments, food cannot be given to a patient orally. In such cases, the patient is then fed intravenously. Oral feeding is the conventional method whereas the intravenous one will be considered to be the unconventional one.

Shari’ah only permits the intravenous method due to necessity as man cannot usually survive without food and drink.”

(Comment by The Majlis: The Mufti has expressed himself incorrectly on this point. The body has not been artificially customized for the natural process/method of consuming food. The way people are consuming their food is natural. It is the natural method created by Allah Ta’ala. It is not merely a ‘conventional’ method. It is not a method which has been adopted and made conventional. It is the only natural way for the ingestion of food.
When a person, due to some grave disease, is unable to eat with his mouth and is forced by circumstances to consume food with his posterior or be fed intravenously, then such methods will be unnatural, not merely ‘unconventional’. An unconventional method can sometimes be natural, e.g. drinking water with a straw, or eating with knives and forks, or eating from a brand new or a thoroughly cleansed chamber pot. While this kind of westernized shaitaan will be eating naturally (i.e. via his mouth), the method will be unconventional and haraam.
Thus, the unnatural method will be permissible ONLY in case of Dharoorat (DIRE NEED), not hallucinated ‘need’ as the liberal muftis of this time imagine. Dire Need (Dharoorat) is only a need upheld by the Shariah.
The factor of Zigzagery

At this stage in his fatwa, the Mufti has subtly introduced the first step in his Zigzag datwa. He has subtly introduced the factor of Dharoorat to render the reader’s mind conducive for the acceptance of the corrupt, baatil conclusion of his liberal view.

The ploy is to imprint in the mind of readers that the desire of having a child is a Dharoorat, hence the ‘permissibility’ of artificial insemination. Thus the zigzagging between Haqq and baatil should be conspicuous to all intelligent men.
Continuing his fatwa, the Mufti says:

“In the absence of necessity, Shari’ah does not recommend the usage of unconventional methods of infusing objects into the body.” (This is incorrect. It is a devious attempt to mismanipulate the Shar’i principle of Dharoorat, and to confuse the unlearned. In the absence of ‘necessity’ (Dharoorat), the Shariah forbids usage of unnatural and unconventional methods. The Shariah does not merely “not recommend” the haraam methods. It strictly forbids the satanic methods. This is the second step in the process of zigzagery. -The Majlis)

Zigzagging back to the Shariah, the Mufti says:

“That brings us to your question regarding artificial insemination. As all the modern methods of artificial insemination (GIFT, IVF, IVI and ICSI) are not conventional (in fact are unnatural satanic methods – The Majlis) methods of inducing fertilization nor are these procedures a matter of life and death, opting for these procedures would be against the principles of Shari’ah.

In instances where these procedures are carried out by a doctor, which is more likely, many aspects of it will be considered to be prohibited by the Shari’ah.

Firstly, the male will be required to extract sperm through masturbation. This is not permissible. In the event the sperm is extracted lawfully, the female will be required to expose her Awrah to the doctor. One is only allowed to expose the Awrah to a doctor in the case of dire necessity.

(The Majlis comments: This section of the fatwa conforms with the Shariah. However, the Mufti reverting to his zigzag haraam liberal trajectory, avers):
“If you are unable to conceive through natural methods, and there are no other alternatives, then there is leeway in making use of IVF.”
(Our Comment: This is the satanism which shaitaan has inspired into the brains of the Mufti. With this stupid statement he seeks to impose on the understanding of ignorant people that sterility (uqmah/barrenness) is Shar’i Dhuroorat justifying the commission of haraam and a major sin.
While this wayward Mufti begins his Zigzag fatwa with the appropriate Qur’aanic Aayat, he conveniently or surreptitiously or ignorantly refrains from taking into account the penultimate statement of the Aayat which has a fundamental bearing on the issue under discussion. In this statement, Allah Azza Wa Jal says: “He makes barren whomever He wills.”
The sterility whether in the woman or the man, is the act and will of Allah Ta’ala. In this Aayat, Allah Azza Wa Jal explicitly informs us of His Will and Desire. Under no stretch of Imaani rationality and reasoning can it ever be valid to act in contravention of Allah’s Will and Desire despite the fact that in this dunya Allah Ta’ala has bestowed to humans limited ability to act in conflict with His Will. Since this dunya is the arena of trial and conflict where Muslims have to choose between halaal and haraam, vice and virtue, the limited freewill has been granted to man.
However, the freedom to act in violation of Allah’s Will and Desire does not halaalize the improper utilization of the freedom to act. It is Allah’s Will and Desire that adultery be not committed despite the fact that man has been granted the freedom to act in conflict with the Divine Will. Similarly, it is HARAAM to violate Allah’s Will and Desire regarding ‘barrenness’ despite the haraam ability to do so by the satanic IVF technique invented by the Satanist atheists.
It is this satanistic technique of artificial insemination which is a conglomeration of haraam, filth and satanism which this miserable Mufti Sahib has attempted to slip into the Permissibility folds of the Shariah by the intentional misapplication of the Shar’i principle of Dharoorat.
The Mufti has painfully, stupidly and satanically laboured most deviously and without dexterity, to zigzag his baatil view of permissibility into the fabric of the Shariah.
If a woman is unable to conceive lawfully by the natural method created by Allah Ta’ala, or by even permitted unconventional methods (such as Ta’weez and Amaliyaat, and lawful medicine) which all come within the purview of lawful Asbaab (valid material ways), then it does not justify nor render permissible the haraam satanic techniques of the atheists kuffaar. Her only recourse is Dua, Sabr and Tawakkul. There is no other option. –The Majlis)
The Mufti then says:

“However, it will still not be permissible to tamper with any aspect of the process to ensure a specific gender. Whatever has been decreed for you can never escape you. If you are granted males, be thankful. If you are granted females, then too you must be thankful.”

(While this is correct, it is an attempt to zigzag back to the Shariah, albeit a futile attempt. It is futile because it is in stark conflict with his ‘leeway’ view. There is no difference between this haraam attempt and the other haraam attempt of IVF for the purpose of pregnancy. Both techniques, i.e. to resort to haraam for inducing pregnancy, and for resorting to haraam for selecting the gender of the future child, are satanically villainous, hence HARAAM. There is absolutely no Shar’i Dharoorat principle applicable in these two haraam techniques.Whtever has been willed by Allah Ta’ala for you, accept it with contentment.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “It is of the good fortune of a person that he is pleased with whatever Allah has decreed for him/her.” – The Majlis
With conspicuous hollowness and insincerity, the Mufti advises:

“Have hope in the mercy and bounties of Almighty Allah. Make Dua to Almighty Allah if you wish for a specific gender. Almighty Allah says in a Hadith Qudsi,

يقول الله تعالى: أنا عند ظن عبدي بي

Translation: “I am to my slave as he thinks of me, (i.e. I am able to do for him what he thinks I can do for him).”
Checked and Approved by,
Mufti Ebrahim Desai.

OUR FURTHER COMMENT

The haraam and corrupt fatwa issued by Mufti Ebrahim Desai on the issue of IVF is incompatible with the sentiments expressed by the Mufti in the above avernment. These sentiments may not be restricted to only selective haraam acts. Dua, Tawakkul, Sabr and Ridha apply to all states of the Mu’min. These noble attributes of moral excellence have to be incumbently employed in all instances which demand abstention. Just as it is Waajib to abstain from the haraam technique of gender-selection, so too is it Waajib to abstain from the haraam technique of inducing pregnancy.

Our advice to the Mufti Sahib is to endeavour the restoration of his Imaani bearings by shunning western ideas of liberalism which the Muftis of today adopt especially in modern financial matters, more specifically in the dalliance with the riba banks. Fear Allah Ta’ala. Maut constantly hovers over our heads. Prepare for the stay in Barzakh. Do not barter away your Aakhirah in exchange for the jeefah of this dunya. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhhi wasallam) said:

“The dunya is jeefah (carrion).”

SLAVERY

SLAVERY
Slavery existed on earth since time immemorial. Long before the advent of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), slavery existed and the conditions of slaves were horrible and appalling. Islam came and introduced copious reforms which gradually led to the emancipation of the slaves and the abolition of slavery.
Although Islam did not issue a decree to abolish slavery, its reforms led to the virtual abolition of slavery in the ranks of Muslims. It is not permissible to capture free people and reduce them into slavery as was the European practice for many centuries. The brutal treatment which Europeans meted out to slaves was never part of Islamic culture. The history and the books of Islam are replete with the treatment which Muslims meted out to slaves. Emancipation of slaves is a great ibaadat in Islam. For forgiveness of certain sins, the manumission of slaves is considered necessary.

Islam permits the taking of slaves in a war situation. When the Islamic army conquers a kaafir land, the Islamic government is allowed to take the captives of war and assign them as slaves to the Muslim public. Instead of sending the captives of war to prisons and concentration camps, they are distributed among the Muslim populace. Muslims are under Shar’i obligation to treat the slaves kindly as if they were members of their own family. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) commanded that they be fed the same food and be clothed in the same garments as the master. This is a broad principle which is the basis for treatment of slaves.

While slavery exists in theory in the books of Islam, in practice it had died out very long ago. The slaves under Muslim control were so highly trained, educated and looked after that they even became the rulers of the Islamic empire. The Mamluke dynasty is the reign of slaves who ruled the Islamic world at one time.

The stories of cruelty which the Europeans and other kuffaar are spreading about Arab maltreatment of slaves are part of the conspiracy of the west to discredit Islam. If some cruel and selfish Arabs had exploited the slaves, this cannot be blamed on Islam nor on the entire nation of Arabs. Such claims are false and malicious. The Europeans have a history of brutality which they perpetrated on the slaves. They are undoubtedly involved in conspiracies to eliminate Islam. The events in Bosnia and elsewhere are ample testimony for their plots.

Unscrupulous exists in all societies and in all nations. But the callous misdeeds of a few men cannot be regarded as the practice of the whole nation. Slavery does not exist today anywhere among Muslims to the best of our knowledge. Islam does not permit the capture of free persons and reducing them into slavery as was the case with the Europeans who set out from their countries especially to capture Africans from Africa and sell them in America and Europe as slaves. While some Arabs may have been involved in this illicit trade, the Arab race cannot be held for such misconduct just as the Arabs or any other nation cannot be held responsible for the drug-trafficking which today members of their respected races are carrying on throughout the world. Such evil men will be found in every community and in every age. But, the attempt to label the whole Arab nation as cruel and brutal because a handful of unscrupulous arabs may have imitated the Europeans in the slave-trade, is a clear plot to discredit Islam because the Arabs are Muslims, hence, the propaganda goes to put out that Islam teaches Arabs to be cruel to slaves. But, this is false.

HARAAM ‘AL-AQSA’ NIGHT

THE HARAAM ‘AL-AQSA’ NIGHT OF FISQ AND FUJOOR

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that at the approach of Qiyaamah, the abundance and quick occurrence of fitan (plural of fitnah) will be so overwhelming that it will be like a string of beads cut asunder with the beads scattering helter skelter swiftly. This is precisely what is happening in our era. Every day there arises a new fitnah heralding the Hour of Qiyaamah.

Immorality, perversion and obscenity are organized, proclaimed halaal and promoted for nafsaani gratification and for the haraam boodle which these haraam, satanic events net. The acts of fisq and fujoor are glorified and presented satanically with Islamic hues to deceive the ignorant ones.

One such haraam event being organized by some Zanadaqah has been dubbed:

The One Night Al-Aqsa Movie. This shaitaani event of fisq and fujoor is also being executed in haraam cinema venues. The very venue confirms the haraam and immoral status of the shaitaani show painted with the ‘Al-Aqsa’ colour. The very word, ‘Al-Aqsa’, is a massive deception. All ‘Al-Aqsa’ events, shows, fund-raising programmes, etc., are stunts – nafsaani and shaitaani stunts. Muslims should not be so gullible to entrap themselves in ‘Al-Aqsa’ stunts.

‘Al-Aqsa’ and ‘Gaza’ are the chimera dangled in front of stupid Muslims for siphoning boodle. Everything associated with ‘Al-Aqsa’ and ‘Gaza’ programs and projects is haraam. There is no goodness in these programs of deception. Money is the primary objective.

This haraam ‘al-aqsa’ movie night is an embodiment of fisq and fujoor. Contributing funds towards it, participation in it and promoting it in any way whatever are all among the major sins (Kabaa-ir). Do not be fooled by the ‘funds being for Gaza projects’. In fact all these projects of whatever nature are haraam.

Gaza and the whole of Palestine are under kufr domination. There is nothing of the Deen in Gaza. It is evil just as all other Muslim lands today are evil. Fisq and Fujoor are the order of the day even in Gaza, hence Allah’s Athaab in the form of Yahoodi domination has settled on the fussaaq/fujjaar inhabitants.

The ‘Gaza’ slogan is a trick card for the acquisition of monetary objectives. The very nature of the evil ‘aqsa’ night movie loudly testifies to the shaitaaniyat of this ‘gaza’ zina affair. It is time for even ignorant Muslims to wake up and to see through the thin haraam veneer of shaitaaniyat covering all of these al-aqsa, gaza and palestine projects and programmes. The Muslim community has been tapped and fleeced for boodle in these names for too long a time. Instead of thawaab, there is only athaab for participating in and contributing to the haraam ‘al-aqsa’ movie night shaitaaniyat.

The leaders and rulers of Palestine and Gaza are scoundrels just as all the rulers and governments in Muslim countries are scoundrels, robbers, crooks and the vilest of fussaaq and fujjaar. Yasar Arafat who had so deceptively portrayed himself as a ‘freedom fighter’ struggling for Palestine, left a fortune of a billion dollars. He was an ally of Israel. But the people were too stupid to understand and see the glaring truth staring them in their faces. These rulers are the worst enemies of the peoples, including those of Gaza. They are also the reflection of the evil and filth of the people over whom they are saddled.

“ISLAMIC” LIFE-COACHING

“ISLAMIC” LIFE-COACHING –

A NEW SHAITAANI FITNAH OF SHIRK AND KUFR

QUESTION

Assalaamu alaikum! Recently it has come to my attention that a new fitna is starting amongst Muslims. Women are beginning to attend so-called “Islamic” life coaching classes. The problem with these courses is that they use the hadith “I behave with my slave as he thinks of me”, and incorporate new age concepts that stem from Budhism. They however take Allah’s name yet quote non-Muslims and instead of saying visualize good they say make a shukr jar and shukr will be a means of attaining ones dream job and holiday etc. What is the fatwa of the Shariah on such classes?
ANSWER

Those who attend these classes of shirk and kufr lose their Imaan. Only ‘Muslims’ whose Imaan dangles by a thread will participate in these shaitani classes. The use of the Name of Allah Ta’ala is both deceptive and sacrilegious.

All exercises based on the concepts of other religions and ideologies are shirk which eliminates Imaan. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“Whoever searches for a religion other than Islam, never ever will it be accepted from him (or her), and in the Hereafter he (or she) will be among the khaasireen (those destroyed and condemned to Jahannam).”

(Aal Imraan, Aayat 85)
Once trapped in the satanic tentacles of these shirk and kufr ideologies, extrication becomes almost impossible. All these alien ideologies in terms of Islam are religions of Satanism. Islamic terminology is deceptively used to bait and trap Muslims of weak and deficient Imaan. Beware of these snares of shaitaan. Participation in these classes of shirk eliminates Imaan.

SYRIA

TODAY THE PLIGHT ON THE FRONTLINE!!!

TURKISH TROOPS ALSO FLEE
From the frontline of the misguided Syrian ‘jihad’, comes the following desperate call portraying the heartrending conditions of both the tens of thousands of refugees and mujaahideen who are all currently fleeing with their lives and whatever they can carry with them. The massive exodus from Idhlib, the last so-called ‘stronghold’ of the mujahideen and other evil rebel fighters who are no better than the brutal Assad butcher, vociferously and vigourously testifies to the huge error of those who had dubbed the brutal animality of the Syrian conflagration a ‘jihad’. The panic and pandemonium accompanying the flight further testify that Allah Azza Wa jal is magnifying His Athaab for the masses and the ‘mujahideen’ who had displayed staggering ignorance from the very inception of their U.S. conspired and directed ‘jihad.
A DESPERATE MESSAGE FROM THE FRONTLINE

From …………A Brother currently present in the arena of conflict. Message received today, Friday 7th February
Asalamualaykum. Things are going from bad to worse here in Syria. Sararkib which is about 8km from Idlib city fell last night. They bombing the city itself which is the last stronghold of the Ahlus Sunnah and the Mujahideen. People are fleeing in their tens of thousands. They putting whatever belongings they can carry down on any piece of ground that they can find. It is raining here at the moment and a cold front is approaching. Allah make easy!
All Mujahideen are busy evacuating their families to the Turkish border. They and their families are now themselves Refugees. They also dumping their families on whatever piece of ground they can find.
They also appealing for tents etc. They don’t know where to go or what to do with their families. Lots and lots of aid of every kind is needed.

They are clueless as to what to do next. I really don’t know what is going to happen
Turkey sealed the border. Turkey sent in troops and tanks, but they also fled Sararkib. Whole of Sararkib was surrounded. They managed to break through last night and flee. May Allah Ta’ala have mercy.

(End of the Brother’s message)

COMMENT

“They managed to break through last night and flee.”: This statement may refer to either the surrounded mujahideen or to the Turkish troops.
What is currently transpiring was always a forgone conclusion which never posed any enigma to any person of sound intelligence. We can only supplicate and say: May Allah Ta’ala have mercy!

1. It is permissible to sell t-shirts with flags of the various countries imprinted on them, irrespective of the religious predominance in the respective country. However, one should avoid t-shirts with flags that have animate objects, religious depictions- like the Saudi flags, etc.

2. There are academic differences of opinions amongst contemporary ‘Ulamaa and Muftis regarding digital photography. The Darul Iftaa advises to adopt taqwaa and avoid all forms of digital pictures and videos. You may revert to us with details of the product(s) you wish to advertise and we will try to assist you with suitable alternatives.

Is this fatwa correct according to the Shariah?

ANSWER
The fatwa is seriously flawed with incongruities. It is not valid in terms of the Shariah.

The Mufti did not apply his mind. It is clear that the Muftis of this age are egregiously ignorant of the fact that the objective of Ifta is to bring people closer to Allah Ta’ala. On the contrary, these muftis are entrenching the fisq and fujoor of people by resorting to technicalities. The Aakhirat is the furthest from their minds. Hence, whatever technical loophole they can dig out from the kutub, they will utilize to issue such lamentable fatwas which only give further impetus to the fisq and fujoor of people, thus further stunting their Imaan and increasing the chasm between Allah Ta’ala and His servants.

FLAGS AND T-SHIRTS
The flags of kuffaar countries are generally symbols of kufr. It is not permissible for Muslims to sell such flags and T-shirts with such flags even if the flags are without animate objects. Furthermore, such T-shirts are Tashabbuh bil kuffaar. It is haraam for Muslims to wear such garb.

The chap who asked the question clearly mentioned that he desires to sell such T-shirts “for the upcoming Soccer World Cup.” It beggars Imaani credulity that a mufti fails to understand the colossal fisq and fujoor accompanying these haraam kuffaar games. A host of major sins are attached to these shaitaani games. To sell T-shirts associated in any way with these haraam activities is to aid and abet in sin and transgression. It is I’aanat alal ma’siyat. It is haraam by the explicit Nass of the Qur’aan Majeed.

By what stretch of aql did the mufti cite the principle of Al-Asl fil Ashyaa’ Al-Ibaahat (the principle regulating things is permissibility), defies understanding. This principle has absolutely no relevance to the issue of selling flags and T-shirts.

THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND

THE BEGINNING OF MAN

Q. I am plagued by severe doubts about the beginning of mankind. How is it possible to believe that besides Adam and Hawwa there were no other humans? If they were the only human beings, who was the wife of his first son and husband for his first daughter?

A. It suffices to know that Allah Ta’ala created Aadam and Hawwaa (alayhis salaam) and that they were the first of the human race to appear on earth. It is incumbent to accept and believe this much. Denial of this fact is kufr. Thereafter in which manner Allah Ta’ala spread out people on earth does not matter. The fact remains that people are existing and the only Creator is Allah Ta’ala.

However, we shall endeavour to answer your doubts in this regard. The first children to be born to Aadam (alayhis salaam) were a set of twins (one male and one female). The male’s name was Qaabeel and the female’s name Qaleemah. Thereafter sets of twins were born in rapid succession by the permission and power of Allah Ta’ala. Aadam (alayhis salaam) had a total of 20 sets of twins, each set having a male and a female. The last of them was Abdul Mugheeth and his sister Ummul Mugheeth. The second son of Aadam (alayhis salaam) was Haabeel and the third son was Sheeth (alayhis salaam). By the time Aadam (alayhis salaam) died there were 400,000 people on earth. The sons and daughters of Aadam (alayhis salaam) were blessed with numerous children and each family reproduced in quick succession. Nabi Aadam’s age was approximately 1,000 years.

Many names of the children of Aadam (alayhis salaam) appear in the Tauraah.

In order to start the process of procreation, Allah Ta’ala, in the beginning permitted marriage between the sons and daughters of Aadam (alayhis salaam). However, in that first system of marriage, the female and male of the same set of twins could not marry each other. The male of one set of twins married the female of another set of twins. After a while when a sufficient number of families was established in this way, Allah Ta’ala prohibited this system of marriage.

When Nabi Nooh (alayhis salaam) embarked on the ship during the great flood, there were approximately 70 people on board. The question of how mankind again started after the Flood, therefore should not pose any riddle. Among these persons were the three sons of Nooh (alayhis salaam). Saam was the progenitor of the Arab or Semitic race; Haam was the father of Habash or the African race and Yaafith was the Father of Unaan-e-Awwal or the Greeks. These sons spread out into different parts of the world. Each of these sons had three sons who also spread out.

This is an outline of the development and spread of mankind on earth.

With regard to the great Flood, one reliable view is that all people inhabiting the world at that time were not destroyed. Only the people of a particular region were destroyed.

According to the Qur’aan, Allah Ta’ala had decreed the year to have twelve months from the very beginning of Aadam’s time. While we have not yet seen any narrations on the names of the days and months, it will be safe to presume that these names were decreed by Allah Ta’ala. Aadam (alayhis salaam) was the most perfect and most intelligent and knowledgeable man. He appeared on earth in the most perfect state. He was not an ignorant ‘cave-man’. He was instructed in all worldly affairs, including farming, preparing food, sewing garments, etc. by Jibraeel (alayhis salaam). Thus all subsequent developments in every field of life have their origins in the Ta’leem of Nabi Aadam (alayhis salaam).

We advise that you increase your Thikr of Allah Ta’ala. Recite the Thikr of La ilaha illallaahu constantly and in abundance. Insha’Allah, your heart will open up and you will understand that these issues pertaining to the distant past history of mankind are irrelevant for the purpose of gaining nearness to Allah Ta’ala. Precisely for this reason does the Qur’aan not concern itself with the details of historical events.

May Allah Ta’ala guide you and ourselves..
