The Perils of Associating with the People of Baatil

FROM:Jamiatul Ulama Gauteng

In a village in Punjab, a beautiful Qadiani girl was presented to an army officer for marriage. The military officer made a condition for the acceptance of the marriage proposal that he would never accept Qadianism.

The Qadianis accepted the condition and sent the girl with the army officer. After the marriage, he would frequently visit his in-laws and they began sweet-talking him to (accept) Qadianism. One day, the pope of the Qadianis visited and he told the military officer: “You do not consider Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani to be a prophet. However, accept this one thing which I will tell you: Make Istikharah whether there is a prophet after the Holy Prophet or not? Is Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani a true prophet or not?”.

The soldier was being given poison to drink, but as he drank he did not realize that he was raising a cup of poison to his lips. He accepted the idea of making Istikharah.

After performing Istikharah at night, he saw in a dream that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani had become a prophet and people were gathered around him. When he woke up in the morning, he believed in Qadianism in accordance to his Istikhara. He alone believing (in Qadianism) was not the major problem. He began inviting people to believe in the prophethood of Mirza and converted his family to become followers of Mirza Qadiani. All the scholars were helpless (in convincing him to leave Qadianism).

If a scholar invited him (to revert to Islam and the beliefs of the Ahlus Sunnah), he would say, “I did not consider Mirza as a prophet on the invitation of a Qadiani. I made istikhara and in my istikhara I was shown Qadiyani to be a nabi. I personally had the opportunity to see the dream.” When no scholar could satisfactorily answer him with proofs and arguments, he lost hope and stopped meeting the Ulama.

Eventually Maulana Yusuf Ludhianvi Shaheed graced the jalsah of Chenab Nagar. Maulana was a famous personality, hence this military officer agreed to meet him on the pretext that he would also see their (the Ahlus Sunnah’s) great Maulvi. When the military officer stated his case before Maulana that he did not become a Qadiani at the invitation of anyone nor on account of greed (for money), rather, he became a Qadiani due to (what was in his understanding) proof which he personally witnessed (i.e. his dream). (The military officer made his case as follows:) “Istikharah is advice from Allah. I consulted (made istikhara) with the Rabb in accordance to the law of Islam. Allah showed me Mirza Qadiani to be a prophet. Now must I believe in what Allah says or what the Maulvis say? How can I leave what Allah Himself showed me in a dream and believe in what the Maulvis say?” Maulana Ludhianvi Shaheed held his hand and said by means of his bodily expression, “At present, do not obey the (that) rabb, obey this humble Maulvi.

It is only the Maulvi who can tell you what the true Rabb is saying.” Maulana spoke and said: “When you doubted the personality of Nabi-e-Akram sallallahualayhi wasallam, then you ceased to be a Muslim. If you truly believed with conviction that Nabi-e-Akram sallallahualayhi wasallam is the final Nabi and there is no possibility of the emergence of any new Nabi, then you definitely would have not made istikhaarah (since istikhaarah is to gain contentment on something which you are uncertain about).

When you decided to make istikharah, then it was tantamount to you having doubt whether Sayyidul Abraar (Nabi) sallallahu alayhi wasallam is the final Nabi or not. When you were in doubt with regards to the personality of the Noble Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, you became a disbeliever. Having doubt in the personality of a Prophet is also clear-cut disbelief. The moment you began doubting (the finality of the Prophethood of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam), you instantly became a disbeliever and in this condition of disbelief you saw Qadiani to be a Nabi (in your dream)”.

Upon hearing this argument, the army officer was aroused, jumped up and embraced Maulana Shaheed. There and then he repented and reverted to Islam. (O Reader!) Think to yourself! Where did it all start? (Answer: on account of associating with people who are not on the right path). How did he begin doubting the personality of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam and what was the (disastrous) outcome?

This is exactly what the great Imam Abu Hanifa rahmatullahi alayh said: “Believe in the finality of Prophethood without (seeking) any evidence. Whoever questions (in this regard) will become a disbeliever”. Questions and enquiries are made on the basis of doubt and doubting the personality of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam is clear-cut kufr.

The Benefits of Eating With the Hand and Its Superiority

By Jamiatul Ulama Gauteng

Eating with your hands is natural, enjoyable and beneficial to health. Although it is regarded as impolite and unclean, particularly in the West, it is actually the norm in many parts of the world such as Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Regardless of the customs of others, we as muslims know that it is from the Sunnah to eat with the right hand and to lick the fingers upon finishing one’s meal and there are numerous hadiths in this regard.

The Benefit And Etiquette of Eating By Hand in the Sunnah
Ibn ‘Umar narrated that The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

When one of you eats, let him eat with his right hand, and when he drinks, let him drink with his right hand. Verily, the devil eats and drinks with his left hand. [Muslim]

‘Umar bin Abū Salamah (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

I was a boy under the care of Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم), and my hand would go around the dish while I was eating. So Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said to me: “O boy! Mention the Name of Allah, eat with your right hand, and eat what from what is in front of you.” Since then I have applied those instructions when eating. [Bukhari]

In The Sunan of Abi Dawood it is narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said:

The right hand of the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was for his purification and food, and his left hand was for using the toilet and anything that was dirty.

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) as saying:

When any one of you eats food he should lick his fingers, for he does not know in what part of the food sticking to his fingers the blessing lies. [Muslim]

Jabir reported:

I heard Allaah’s Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) saying: The Shaytaan is present with any one of you in everything he does; he is present even when he eats food; so if any one of you drops a mouthful he should remove away anything filthy on it and eat it and not leave for the devil; and when he finishes (food) he should lick his fingers, for he does not know in what portion of his food the blessing lies.

‘Abdullah bin Ka’b reported that his father Ka’b said to him:

Allaah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to eat with three fingers and when he had finished (eating), he licked them. [Muslim]

Ibn Al-Qayyim mentions in his Prophetic Medicine regarding the number of fingers the Prophet would use to eat his food:

He used to eat with his three fingers, which is the best way to eat. Eating with one finger or with two does not allow the one eating to derive pleasure nor does it give him any benefit, and it is a long while before he has enough; nor do the organs of taste or the stomach gain any pleasure by such small morsels. To eat with five fingers and the whole hand causes the food to crowd the organs and the stomach so the organs are forced to pass it through, and the stomach to bear it. This gives neither pleasure nor relish. The most excellent way of eating is that adopted by the Prophet and those who follow him, with three fingers.

What Personal Experience And Science Tells Us About Eating By Hand
Eating is a multi-sensory experience. All of the senses – sight, smell, taste, touch and even hearing – are involved and they all work in harmony together. The nerve endings in your hands send information to the brain and stomach concerning the make up, texture, temperature, nature and digestibility of the food about to be eaten. This instructs the stomach to release digestive juices and enzymes. The hands, in conjunction with the eyes and nose allow the entire digestive system to prepare for what is about to be consumed before it even reaches your mouth.

Using a spoon, fork or other utensil sends a message to the body explaining that this is something foreign and harmful, and should not be eaten, resulting in a completely different response to when eating by hand. The muscles of the neck, mouth and jaw tighten slightly and become stiff which can lead to aches, strain and tension. The whole posture and body language in terms of muscular activity and enjoyment is completely different. Not eating with the hands is a contributing cause to weak gums, dry lips and skin and stiff necks.

You know your food is hot because the hands are effective temperature sensors which makes it less likely that you will burn your tongue. This does not happen when using a spoon or fork as the food goes directly from the plate to your mouth and the brain does not get the message concerning the temperature of the food.

Using your hands encourages mindfulness as it allows you to concentrate on your food and feel more connected to it. Eating mindfully and engaging all the senses – feeling the texture of the food, smelling its aroma and really savouring it – brings about much more pleasure and satisfaction. It makes you eat more slowly and pay attention to how much you have eaten. Food simply tastes better when eaten by hand and the whole experience is something that cannot be replicated by using cutlery.

A study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology showed that families who ate by hand were more in touch with eating concepts, such as eating only when hungry and paying attention to how full they are. The study found that parents were able to help their 8 to 12-year-old overweight children cut down on binge eating by training them to eat by hand.

Another study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition found that people with type 2 diabetes were more likely to be fast eaters that used cutlery to eat, as compared to those without the condition. Eating with forks and spoons correlates with mindless and faster eating, which has been linked to blood-sugar imbalances in the body – contributing to the development of type 2 diabetes.

It is also more practical to eat with your hands in many cases. The fingers are very agile and designed to hold and manipulate objects. They allow for more appropriate and delicate placing of the food in the mouth. If the food is tough, the hand, teeth, gums and neck muscles act together in harmony with the pulling and biting combination strengthening the arms, gums and neck. It is easier to pluck meat out of bones. Many foods such as bread, chips, barbecued and fried food, pieces of meat, fruit, burgers, nuts, sandwiches and wraps are eaten with the hands.

Benefits of Horse Riding

By Jamiatul Ulama Gauteng

Our Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) about horses:

Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said “The Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) allotted three portions for a man and his horse, one for him and two for his horse. Sunan Abu Dawud

Narrated Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him):

Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,“There is always goodness in horses till the Day of Resurrection. “ Sahih al-Bukhari

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“There should be no awards (for victory in a competition) except for arrows, camels or horses.” Sunan an-Nasa’i

Narrated`Urwa-al-Bariqi (may Allah be pleased with him):

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Horses are always the source of good, namely, rewards (in the Hereafter) and booty, till the Day of Resurrection.” Sahih al-Bukhari

Narrated Ibn`Umar (may Allah be pleased with him):

On the day of Khaibar, Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) divided (the war booty of Khaibar) with the ratio of two shares for the horse and one-share for the foot soldier. (The sub-narrator, Nafi` explained this, saying, “If a man had a horse, he was given three shares and if he had no horse, then he was given one share.”) Sahih al-Bukhari

There are many benefits of horse riding. It is an outdoor recreational activity that is gaining popularity because it is healthy and beneficial to the rider. Contrary to the common misconception, horse riding is a sport that is far from an idle and passive activity. It is an exercise by itself which is both cardiovascular as well as muscle conditioning, and it improves many aspects of the rider’s life. There is little limitation of age and abilities, making horse riding accessible and enjoyable to adults and children alike.

Physical Benefits of Horse Riding

Being a form of exercise, horse riding improves respiration and blood circulation as all exercises do. What makes it different is that the activity involves having a good posture on the back of the horse for an extended period of time, which translates to better posture overall for the rider. It promotes balance and coordination during the movement of the horse and the motor function of the rider improves as a result.

The rhythmic gait of the horse induces a constant need for the rider to adjust accordingly, and different muscle groups, especially pelvic muscles and postural muscles are actively being worked on. At higher speed, other muscle groups such as quadriceps and hamstrings are being worked on intensively.

The constant adjustment and counter-reaction towards the horse’s natural gait, coupled with good riding posture strengthen the spine, increase joint mobility, and condition various muscle groups.

A seasoned horseback rider will also develop great sensory integration with the surroundings, developing alertness and able to perceive and handle emergency situations better.

Mental Benefits of Horse Riding

Apart from the obvious health benefits of horse riding, the mental aspect of it should not be taken lightly. Countless folks who have taken up horseback riding report the enjoyment they experience during the ride. Even children who are taking horse riding lessons look forward to their next lesson.

The sense of enjoyment is derived from both the joy of riding and feeling connected with the great outdoors. The breath of fresh air at the riding trails and the heartfelt enjoyment lead to lower the stress level often associated with the modern life. Riders with less stress level gradually develop a feel good factor towards themselves and this in turn makes them more positive and cheerful and the newfound optimism permeates their daily lives.

As an amateur rider proceeds to become more proficient, they are constantly learning new things; be it horse riding vocabulary, coordination and balance, grooming of the horse, etc. The learning never stops while the mind never gets disengaged. This mental exercise of continuous learning keeps one alert and prevents memory loss, as studies have shown.

Regular riders also develop a deep sense of trust with the horse, which consequently lead to a greater capacity to trust other people around.

Psychological Benefits of Horse Riding

A horse is a large animal. In order to ride a horse properly, a rider needs to exert control and master the skills required to make the horse respond to your commands. Achieving control over a large animal instills enormous self-esteem and confidence which is beneficial in facing everyday’s challenges. The sense of control and accomplishment will help riders to handle difficult situations better because they believe every rough patch can be tamed.

Learning to ride a horse proficiently is not an easy thing and the element of patience need to be cultivated. Dealing with animals as large as a horse is also perceived as risky and hence, the risk-taking abilities are sharpened.

Apart from that, people who take up horse riding develop interests in the outside world and appreciation of the outdoors. This is much needed to escape from the hectic desk-bound jobs that characterize the modern society.

Besides, a sense of responsibility is developed from the respect and need to care for the horse which includes regular grooming and feeding.

WHAT SCIENTISTS SAY ABOUT THE MASK

WHAT SCIENTISTS SAY ABOUT THE MASK

The Science is Conclusive: Masks and Respirators do NOT Prevent Transmission of Viruses

Dr. Denis G Rancourt, PhD

Comment: The following review of the scientific literature on wearing surgical and other facemasks as a means of preventing the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and thus preventing contraction of ‘Covid-19’ was published a month ago. And absent some miraculous suspension of decades of hard science on the transmission of viruses, it’s settled

Abstract

Masks and respirators do not work. There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles.

Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle.

The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.

Review of the Medical Literature

Here are key anchor points to the extensive scientific literature that establishes that wearing surgical masks and respirators (e.g., “N95”) does not reduce the risk of contracting a verified illness:

  • Jacobs, J. L. et al. (2009) “Use of surgical face masks to reduce the incidence of the common cold among health care workers in Japan: A randomized controlled trial”, American Journal of Infection Control, Volume 37, Issue 5, 417 – 419.
About the mask

CLASSES – ALLAH’S CREATION

The concept of class equality or a classless society is a stupid myth. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“We distribute their livelihood among them in this worldly life, and We elevate the ranks of some over others so that some will take others as workers.” (Az-Zukhruf, Aayat 32)
Even the Ambiya (Alayhimus salaam) are not equal in status as the Qur’aan Majeed confirms. However,
higher worldly status is not a factor for the attainment of lofty status in the Aakhirat and for Proximity to Allah Ta’ala. The criterion for Closeness to Allah Ta’ala is Taqwa. Allah’s Proximity is proportionate to the degree of Taqwa. The Qur’aan Majeed states:
“Verily, the noblest among you by Allah are those whose Taqwa is the most.”
Closeness to Allah Ta’ala is not related to worldly status. Taqwa is the treasure and consequence of total obedience to Allah Ta’ala — obedience to the Shariah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

SELLING TELEVISIONS

Question
What is the Fatwa on selling TV’s? We always understood it to be Haraam. Please comment on the following fatwa of a mufti:
“QUESTION Is it permissible for one to sell a TV?
ANSWER Televisions are mainly used for the purpose of viewing Haram content. The harms of television are known to all. However, a TV does not serve a singular purpose, rather it is a multi-purpose item. It has several permissible uses such as, displaying Salah times; Deeni advices; CCTV; education. In principle, if an item has both permissible and impermissible uses, it will be permissible for one to sell it. The income from such a sale will be Halal. If the buyer uses the item for sinful activities, the seller will not be responsible if he does not employ impermissible methods to sell the TV, for example, advertising the quality of the screen and sound through animate pictures and music.” (End of fatwa)
OUR COMMENT
The Mufti dwells in gross error. His zig-zag fatwa is baseless. The objective of a fatwa is guidance, not misguidance. With the zig-zag fatwa the mufti aids in the commission of sin and transgression in flagrant violation of the Qur’aanic prohibition: “Do not mutually aid one another in sin and transgression.”
Since this mufti has made selling televisions halaal, what is the purpose of his statement: “Televisions are mainly used for the purpose of viewing Haram content.”? It is a meaningless comment which highlights the zig-zag trajectory of today’s muftis. In view of the fact that the primary purpose of television is viewing zina, fisq and fujoor and its foundational principle is haraam pictography, the actual fatwa is that it is haraam to sell these satanic devices. It is an illustration of puerility for the mufti to introduce in his fatwa the principle pertaining to selling items which can be used for both permissible and impermissible acts. Mention of this principle is his zig-zag attempt to camouflage his egregious error. It is not like selling a knife or a gun which are primarily used for halaal purposes. Since television is primarily used for haraam, he was supposed to issue a short and crisp fatwa of hurmat (prohibition). The question pertains to television in general, and that implies television used in haraam ways for haraam purposes. The question does not pertain to monitors/screens. The questioner asks about television employed in haraam manner, that is with pictures, for haraam purposes, that is zina, porno, fisq and fujoor. No one is so stupid as to ask about permissibility of mere screens / monitors used for Salaat timetables. The mufti has degenerated into a moronic quagmire with his zig -zagging style of ‘fatwas’. Any moron can understand from the question that the person asks about pornotelevision — television displaying pictures and the deluge of filth and muck disseminated by television. While he acknowledges that television is mainly used for haraam, he issues his fatwa on something which is
totally unrelated to the haraam content. Since the questioner posed his question regarding the ‘content’ which
the mufti himself describes as ‘haraam content’, his fatwa of permissibility is satanically zig -zagging designed to mislead and misguide. If the device is required for a lawful purpose, the questioner would have posed the
question differently. The halaal usage is the exception. Television is used for “haraam content” in 99.9% of cases. The mufti who appears to be a victim of western liberalism, viewed the question with squint eyes or in an upside down manner which obscured the reality of the hurmat, hence the zig-zag ‘halaal’ consequence.
Selling television is HARAAM. The income is haraam. A glaring stupidity in the ‘fatwa’ is that the mufti has not answered the question posed to him. While the mustafti’s (the one who asked the question) question pertains to carrion, the mufti’s answer relates to halaal mutton. In other words, the mustafti’s question relates to the usual popular television depictions in which features pictures of animate objects, naked women, lewdness, immorality, fisq and fujoor. The reason why the mustafti seeks a fatwa on an issue which is conspicuously haraam, is because the ulama-e-soo’ who are stupidly understood to be ‘senior muftis’ or stupid ‘grand muftis’, have halaalized this device of Iblees. However, since the conscience of the mustafti is suffering
pangs of confusion, he posed the question in an endeavour to assuage his heart which by virtue of Imaan repels baatil. Regarding the heart of the Mu’min, Rasulullah ( S a l l a l l a h u a l a y h i wasallam) said: “Sin is
that which disturbs your heart.” In order to gain the correct fatwa, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) instructed the true Mu’min: “Seek a fatwa from your heart.” In this age of fisq and fujoor in which the muftis are trading the Shariah for tuppence, one has to be extremely circumspect and not hasten to seek answers from muftis. They pave the pathway of Jahannam with their corrupt and convoluted fatwas of dhalaal.
The mustafti did not ask a fatwa regarding Salaat timetables or Qur’aanic Aayaat displayed on the screens of
such televisions which are used for only halaal purposes. The mustafti who has more brains than most muftis, is fully aware that it will be downright stupid to ask about Salaat timetables and the like. Any moron understands what exactly the mustafti’s question is all about. But the zig zagging mufti with his zig zagging
twaddle ‘daleels’, twiddles with the Deen with his silly and flaccid diversionary ‘proofs’ with which he diverts the attention from the actual question.

FLEEING FROM A LEPER

Q. Why did our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say that one should flee from the leper? Does this not indicate that disease is contagious?
A. You may pose this question to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) on the Day of Qiyaamah if you are afforded an opportunity of meeting him. Why are you stupidly seeking to cancel Rasulullah’s explicit La Adwaa (Disease is not contagious) declaration with the leper Hadith? Why are you casting a blind eye in this direction? Only nifaaq or kufr or extreme deficiency of Imaan constrains a person to abrogate the Ahkaam of the Shariah by means of creating satanic contradictions. Regardless of the reason for fleeing from a leper, the irrefutable fact is that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “La Adwaa”. This suffices for a Mu’min, not for a munaafiq. If someone decides to flee from a leper, he may do so, but he may not utilize the narration
to deny the immutable Truth of the statement made by our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) regarding his negation of the kufr idea of contagion which was the belief of the mushrikeen, and which is still the idea of the atheists of this era. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) advised fleeing from a leper because of Imaani
weakness of people such as you. The fleeing is not for those whose Imaan is sound. While people cite this narration to bolster the ideas of the atheists, they conveniently ‘forget’ that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ate together with a leper from the same bowl. He said to the leper: “Eat and have tawakkul on Allah.” They will not mention that the lepers were not banned from the Musjid nor were they quarantined,
etc. A person who cites this or similar narrations to bolster the kuffaar theory and to scuttle the negation of contagion by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) do so at the peril of losing their Imaan.

MISC. WOMEN’S ISSUES

VARIOUS QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS RELATED TO WOMEN FROM THE MAJLIS VOL 25 NO 10

Q. Is it permissible for a wife to take a job outside the home? Can the husband prevent her?
A. It is not permissible for the wife to take a job outside the home even with the permission
of the husband. It is not permissible for her to do any work even from home without the
permission of her husband. The maintenance is the responsibility of the husband. If he provides the maintenance, and he refuses permission for his wife to work and earn even from home, then it will not be permissible for her to undertake any job even from within the precincts of the home. The husband is under Shar’i obligation to prohibit and prevent his wife from leaving the house to work or to participate in any kind of function.

Q. My husband works in an office among females who are immodestly dressed. He says that he keeps his eyes cast down. He also says that Muslim doctors and even Ulama work with women. What is the Shariah’s law in this regard?
A. The doctors and even Ulama who do not observe proper Hijaab and who work with women are not the Shariah. Their activities and their mingling with women in their professions and occupations may not be presented as a valid basis. The only basis is the Shariah, not the practices of people even if they are great Ulama. If their practices are in conflict with the Shariah, it will remain haraam and not become halaal because they happen to be ‘great’ Ulama. It is not proper and not permissible for a Muslim male doctor to attend to female patients. He should divert them to female doctors. Only if there is a valid reason upheld by the Shariah may a male doctor attend to a female and vice versa. There are numerous non-Muslim female
doctors who can handle Muslim female patients. A Muslim doctor is not supposed to work in a hospital where he has to incumbently interact with females. Thus, their actions are not Islamic proofs for permissibility.
Your husband should himself make a sincere attempt to work elsewhere where he will not be in the company of women. He is bound to fall into the pit of zina. Shaitaan and the Nafs are deceiving him.


Q. Is it permissible to donate human milk?
A. Human breast milk is haraam. Breast milk is only halaal for under two year old infants. Donating or selling human milk or any part of the human body is haraam.

Q. Will a woman be a faasiq if she does not wear niqaab?
A. A woman who does not wear Niqaab in public is worse than a faasiqah. She is a faajirah (immoral).

Q. Will the wife be disobedient if she refuses to submit to her husband’s demand for oral sex?
A. The one who makes such a filthy satanic demand is worse than a pig. Oral or shaitaan sex is haraam. The wife should not submit to the swine-filth of the husband. She will not be disobedient. She is under Shar’i obligation to refuse the haraam instructions and haraam lusts of her husband. How can a human being who is termed Ashraful Makhluqaat (The Noblest of Creation) descend into such depths of swine-inequity?

Q. Is marriage to a Salafi girl valid?
A. Marriage with a Salafi girl is valid just as marriage with a Muslim prostitute is valid. However, such a marriage will be full of misery, hence inadvisable. There will be no compatibility and the marriage is likely
to break down and end in divorce. The Deeni differences and conflicts between Salafis and the Muqallideen of the Math-habs constitute an unbridgeable chasm.

Q. Does the period of breastfeeding differ for boys and girls?
A. The period of breastfeeding is two years for both boys and girls.


Q. My mother is extremely sick and complains a lot. What advice can I give her?
A. Be of service to her to the best of your ability. Tell her that it comes in the Hadith that sickness is a purifier. It cleanses us from all our sins provided that we do not complain. Complaining will not cure the sickness. On the contrary the sickness will become worse. Sickness is also a ni’mat (favour) of Allah Ta’ala. He purifies us here on earth with sicknesses and other difficulties so that we can enter Jannat fully purified. Advise your mother to keep her tongue constantly engaged in Thikrullaah. Maut can come at any moment. Therefore, the tongue should always be engaged in some Thikr to ensure departure from this dunya with
the Kalimah on the tongue.


Q. Is imitation jewellery permissible?
A. Imitation jewellery is permissible for women except rings. Rings must be of either gold or silver.

Q. Is it proper for a man to marry a second wife only for the sake of his lust?
A. Allah Ta’ala permits a man to marry four women. As far as ‘lust’ is concerned, everyone marries to satisfy his/her lust. The primary motive for marrying even one wife is to gratify lust. Initially people marry only to satisfy lust even if only one wife is taken. Allah Ta’ala has created lust in people, hence He is aware that men require more than one wife to satisfy their lust lawfully. Never voice yourself against any Law of Allah Ta’ala. Recite Istighfaar and make Taubah.


Q. Why is it not permissible for women to attend walimahs. During the time of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), they would go to walimahs.
A. Just as it is not permissible for women to attend the Musjid even if there are separate entrances, so too is it forbidden for women to attend ‘walimahs’ nowadays. Furthermore, the ‘walimahs’ nowadays are farcical and bid’ah. In fact, it is not permissible for even men to attend the reception organized by the girl’s parents on the day of the Nikah. Such a reception is not the walimah. Women used to attend the Musjid for Salaat during the age of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). However, this was unanimously banned later by the Sahaabah.
The same applies to walimahs and to all other merrymaking functions.

Q. How many holes may a lady pierce in her ears?
A. A lady may pierce her ears only with one hole in each ear. More than one is the style of the kuffaar.

Q. My husband has cheated on me. He has struck up adulterous relationships. My heart is broken. I don’t know what to do. My health is suffering. I want to run away. Please give me some advice.
A. Countless women are undergoing the same heart-breaking problems. When men lack Taqwa, they conduct themselves like atheists. They really do not believe that Allah Ta’ala is seeing them and that the Recording
Angels are writing their misdeeds. However, do understand well that your broken heart is a wonderful treasure by Allah Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala, in His Own Words, said to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam):
“I am with every broken heart.” Your grief will not be in vain. You will receive immense rewards for patiently bearing the grief. Focus more on Allah Ta’ala. Do not ruin your health on account of the shenanigans of your husband. Maintain your health and use it to gain nearness to Allah Ta’ala. Increase ibaadat. Life on earth is short. It is full of trials. May Allah Ta’ala grant you strength and steadfastness on the Deen. May Allah Ta’ala guide your husband and protect you.

Q. A man has two wives. The one wife lives with him while the other wife lives in her own house about 100 kilometres away. This wife demands equal nights. What is the Shariah’s rule?
A. In the scenario mentioned by you, if the wife who lives 100 kilometres away desires equal nights, then she has to reside in a house procured for her by her husband in the town where he lives. She cannot demand equal nights living in her own house 100 km from her husband.

Q. I do not allow my children to visit their grandparents – my parents and my wife’s parents.
They have televisions, and in general they do not observe the rules of the Shariah such as purdah, mushtabah / haraam food, etc. They are accusing me of breaking family ties. Am I breaking family ties?
A. In fact, it is not permissible to send your children to relatives who are not strict on the Deen. Refraining from sending the children does not mean that you are severing family ties. It is the Waajib obligation of parents to ensure that the Akhlaaq of their children are not compromised by relatives. Nowadays, the safest is to stay at home, and not to visit even relatives. We are trapped in an era of fitnah and fasaad. A home where the Deen is observed is a holy sanctuary visited by the Malaaikah of Rahmat. On the other hand, houses such as the homes of your parents are haunts for the shayaateen. These people lack the haziest idea of the meaning of family ties and what constitutes disruption of breaking of family ties. Furthermore, it is haraam to uphold
‘family ties’ when in conflict with the Shariah.

Q. Is there a special thikr or amal for anxiety and depression? When my evil past comes to mind, I develop anxiety and go into depression.
A. When anxiety develops, do not brood on the past. Do not entertain the thought which is the cause for the anxiety. Instead, lapse into Thikrullah. Perform two raka’ts Nafl and engage in Thikrullah. Shaitaan tries to derail a person by causing anxiety in this manner. A Mu’min equipped with the weapon of Thikr does not suffer depression. Anxiety is an assault of shaitaan, and its antidote is Thikrullah. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Shaitaan sits glued on the heart of man. When he (man) makes thikr, shaitaan
flees. When he (man) is oblivious (ghaafil), shaitaan casts his waswasah.”

Q. I have found out that my husband is conducting relationships with women via his cell phone. He refuses to give me the password. What should I do?
A. 99% of the men of this age, including molvis and sheikhs, are involved in cellphone zina and pornography. There is nothing you will be able to do in these circumstances. Men and women are drowning in deluges of moral filth – zina and porno – of the cellphone. Little children are also addicted to this device of shaitaan. The
entire Ummah across the board, is buffeted madly in this whirlpool of cellphone filth. People no longer have Imaan. They have become atheists. They are in entirety bereft of any concept of Allah’s Omnipresence. They
have become munaafiqs. Whilst they blabber with their mouths about the Recording Angels, they sin flagrantly in front of these Malaaikah and with Allah Ta’ala looking at them. But since they do not really believe in the Presence of Allah Ta’ala and His Malaaikah, they sin recklessly. You can only constantly offer good advice to your husband and adopt Sabr. If you are unable to bear his evil abuse with patience then your marriage will end. Thus, your choice is between Sabr and Talaaq.
Q. The separation between a husband and wife was in terms of Khula’. Is it correct that the Iddat of this woman is 30 days?
A. The Iddat of a woman whether separated by Talaaq or Khula is the same. It is three haidh periods if not pregnant. If pregnant, it ends with the delivery of the child.

A HARAAM GAMBLING SCHEME

Q. There is a WhatsApp group thing, which appears to be gambling. A number of people contribute money. Lots are drawn. One person collects the whole sum of the contributions. A lot of muslim females are now joining this group and recruiting more people to join the group. A muslim female told me she put in R500, and she walked away with R3000. Is this scheme permissible?
They literally just add a R500 into the group, they not selling any goods or services.
For example, you added to group of 15 people. You are the 15th person, you add a R500. Once everyone has given a R500, then they pay the 1st person in the group, then they remove that person. Then you get moved to the 14th position, and they add another person to be person number 15. Then no. 15 pays a R500.
The cycle carries on until you reach number 1 on the list, then you get paid all the money paid from everyone
else. You only put in R500 once. But you will walk away with R7000.


A. The scheme is haraam gambling. It is not permissible to join this gambling group. The prize won is haraam and should be given into charity to the poor. Shaitaan has inspired these evil people with this scheme. The whole scheme from beginning to end is haraam.

Dr. Shallenberger’s Letter to His Patients Regarding the C19 Vaccine

When someone in the medical community speaks out against the World Health Organizations’ policies or the mainstream narrative they are quickly attacked and demonized by the corporate media. Dr. Shallenberger is no exception to this rule. The following letter is his advice to his own patients. Before you Google Dr. Shallenberger’s name and see all the attacks on him, here is a link that can help provide some perspective and balance to any due diligence.

This is a letter from Dr. Shallenberger to his patients explaining why the vaccine is unsafe. Frank Shallenberger, MD has been practicing medicine since 1973 and has been a Pioneer in Integrative Medicine since 1978.

Dear Patients and Friends,

Last week I must have been asked 20 times about the new COVID vaccines. Here are my thoughts. Please pass this information onto many as you can. People need to have fully informed consent when it comes to injecting foreign genetic material into their bodies.

  1. The COVID vaccines are mRNA vaccines. mRNA vaccines are a completely new type of vaccine. No mRNA vaccine has ever been licensed for human use before. In essence, we have absolutely no idea what to expect from this vaccine. We have no idea if it will be effective or safe.
  2. Traditional vaccine simply introduce pieces of a virus to stimulate an immune reaction. The new mRNA vaccine is completely different. It actually injects (transfects) molecules of synthetic genetic material from non-humans sources into our cells. Once in the cells, the genetic material interacts with our transfer RNA (tRNA) to make a foreign protein that supposedly teaches the body to destroy the virus being coded for. Note that these newly created proteins are not regulated by our own DNA, and are thus completely foreign to our cells. What they are fully capable of doing is unknown.
  3. The mRNA molecule is vulnerable to destruction. So, in order to protect the fragile mRNA strands while they are being inserted into our DNA they are coated with PEGylated lipid nanoparticles. This coating hides the mRNA from our immune system which ordinarily would kill any foreign material injected into the body. PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been used in several different drugs for years. Because of their effect on immune system balance, several studies have shown them to induce allergies and autoimmune diseases. Additionally, PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been shown to trigger their own immune reactions, and to cause damage to the liver.
  4. These new vaccines are additionally contaminated with aluminum, mercury, and possibly formaldehyde. The manufacturers have not yet disclosed what other toxins they contain.
  5. Since viruses mutate frequently, the chance of any vaccine working for more than a year is unlikely. That is why the flu vaccine changes every year. Last year’s vaccine is no more valuable than last year’s newspaper.
  6. Absolutely no long term safety studies will have been done to ensure that any of these vaccines don’t cause the cancer, seizures, heart disease, allergies, and autoimmune diseases seen with other vaccines. If you ever wanted to be guinea pig for Big Pharma, now is your golden opportunity.
  7. Many experts question whether the mRNA technology is ready for prime time. In November 2020, Dr. Peter Jay Hotez said of the new mRNA vaccines, “I worry about innovation at the expense of practicality because they [the mRNA vaccines] are weighted toward technology platforms that have never made it to licensure before.” Dr. Hotez is Professor of Pediatrics and Molecular Virology & Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, where he is also Director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development.
  8. Michal Linial, PhD is a Professor of Biochemistry. Because of her research and forecasts on COVID-19, Dr. Linial has been widely quoted in the media. She recently stated, “I won’t be taking it [the mRNA vaccine] immediately – probably not for at least the coming year. We have to wait and see whether it really works. We will have a safety profile for only a certain number of months, so if there is a long-term effect after two years, we cannot know.”
  9. In November 2020, The Washington Post reported on hesitancy among healthcare professionals in the United States to the mRNA vaccines, citing surveys which reported that: “some did not want to be in the first round, so they could wait and see if there are potential side effects”, and that “doctors and nurses want more data before championing vaccines to end the pandemic.”
  10. Since the death rate from COVID resumed to the normal flu death rate way back in early September, the pandemic has been over since then. Therefore, at this point in time no vaccine is needed. The current scare tactics regarding “escalating cases” is based on a PCR test that because it exceeds 34 amplifications has a 100% false positive rate unless it is performed between the 3rd and 5th day after the first day of symptoms. It is therefor 100% inaccurate in people with no symptoms. This is well established in the scientific literature.
  11. The other reason you don’t need a vaccine for COVID-19 is that substantial herd immunity has already taken place in the United States. This is the primary reason for the end of the pandemic.
  12. Unfortunately, you cannot completely trust what you hear from the media. They have consistently got it wrong for the past year. Since they are all supported by Big Pharma and the other entities selling the COVID vaccines, they are not going to be fully forthcoming when it comes to mRNA vaccines. Every statement I have made here is fully backed by published scientific references
  13. I would be very interested to see verification that Bill and Melinda Gates with their entire family including grandchildren, Joe Biden and President Trump and their entire families, and Anthony Fauci and his entire family all get the vaccine.
  14. Anyone who after reading all this still wants to get injected with the mRNA vaccine, should at the very least have their blood checked for COVID-19 antibodies. There is no need for a vaccine in persons already naturally immunized.

Here’s my bottom line: I would much rather get a COVID infection than get a COVID vaccine. That would be safer and more effective. I have had a number of COVID positive flu cases this year. Some were old and had health concerns. Every single one has done really well with natural therapies including ozone therapy and IV vitamin C.. Just because modern medicine has no effective treatment for viral infections, doesn’t mean that there isn’t one.

Yours Always,
Frank Shallenberger, MD, HMD
