hadith can’t be used to justify oppression



Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Islam began in a forlorn state and will
soon return to a forlorn state. Glad tidings to the forlorn.”
We are witnessing such times where the depravity of this Ummah is being made
manifest for all to see. The era prophesied by Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)
where Muslims will be huge in numbers but they will be (useless and
insignificant) as the trash and muck of floodwaters, is certainly before us. Love
for the world and fear of death is the common trait amongst Muslims and nonMuslims alike. Compounding this pitiful state, the current terror that a simple
virus has unleashed upon the masses, has seen the Ummah being further
filtered into those with Imaan and those with merely a façade of it. Right before
our eyes, Islam is being returned to its initial forlorn state! May Allah Ta`ala
include us amongst those fortunate forlorn ones.
Social media has been ablaze with messages and texts (one such corrupt
message originates from the Jamiat so-called ‘ulama’ South Africa) which
purportedly ‘justify’ (from the Mubarak Ahaadith) people skulking in their
homes. The disbelieving governments may believe they are doing good, but as
Muslims we recognise the injustice in preventing Muslims from openly
practicing on their Deen. Islam teaches that we should abide to the laws of a
country. However, the act of ‘justifying’ un-Islamic practices and ‘justifying’ the
Musaajid being left desolate, is pure satanism! Being forced not to go to the
Musjid by non-Muslims is one thing, but for ‘Muslims’ to justify this heinous
decree is totally something else. Those who justify such acts, using Qur`aan and
Sunnah, have proven that they have no Imaan left. The Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu
alaihi wasallam) clearly states that the weakest form of Imaan is to recognise an
injustice to the Deen and to detest it in the heart. Hence, those who feel nothing
about the Musaajid being shut down, are devoid of Imaan. As for those who
condone this oppression and even go one step further of ‘justifying’ it using our
Qur`aan and Ahaadith, have stooped to a level that even puts shaitaan to shame.

Prophetic guidance during epidemic Disease: Social Distancing, Quarantine,

An article with this title is currently doing its rounds on social media. This article
is not only misleading, it is extremely deceptive.
The Hadith reproduced in this article is as follows:
ً ليس من رجل يقع الطاعون فيمكث يف بيته ، يعلم أنه ال يصيبه إال ماكتب هللا له، إالكان له مثل أجر شهيد
ً حمتسبا
FIRSTLY: The Hadith is incorrectly and deviously translated. The translation they
deceptively put is: “….if a person in the time of an epidemic plague stays in their
home, patiently hoping for God’s reward and believing that nothing will afflict
them except what God has written for them, they will get the reward of a
The actual translation should be: “There is no man afflicted with the plague,
who remains in his home patiently, hoping for reward from Allah, knowing
that nothing will afflict him except what Allah has destined for him, except that
he will receive the reward similar to a martyr.”
SECONDLY: The reference given at the bottom of this Hadith cites Musnad
Ahmed AND Saheeh Bukhaari, trying to give the impression that the same Hadith
appears in both these Kitaabs, whereas the wording of this same Hadith in
Saheeh Bukhaari does not have the words رجل من or بيته يف rather it has the words,
.يف بدله and من احد
So, if they wish to restrict the import of the words “in his house” to be literal –
that one should remain indoors only, as is being done at these lockdowns – then
they should also extend that literality to the word “man” (which appears in this
narration in Musnad Ahmed), and infer that women are not included here. This,
we all know, is not the case. The word “man” is used in the Hadith to refer to
both men and women, and the word, “home” infers
locality/hometown/country, and not literally one’s “house”.
Other Kitaabs have the words عبد من meaning “slave”. The words vary but the
import is exactly the same.
The Hadith can never be taken to refer to the “house” only because it is neither
possible nor practical for every person to remain indoors as long as a plague is
present. Society and life would terminate if this were the case.
Also, when there are such cases in Ahaadith where there appears to be a
contradiction, then we interpret it by finding a rational explanation. The
Ahaadith are NEVER contradictory. The Mufassireen and Fuqaha have clarified
any ambiguity that we may perceive. Since the Hadith in Bukhaari mentions “his
locality” this is the obvious meaning that is also extended to the Hadith in
Musnad Ahmed. The word, “home” in Arabic, and also in English (and possibly
most, if not all, languages) is a general term that refers to one’s locality. The
word “home” could refer to one’s hometown, locality, province and even
country. To deceptively translate and infer that Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)
meant remaining indoors is treasonous because it implies the abandoning of
Jamaat Salaat and other beneficial Deeni congregations.
THIRDLY: The Hadith uses the word يقع which refers to a person already afflicted
with the plague. In that case, the person who is already afflicted, can be advised
to remain indoors for various reasons, mostly relating to his recovery. However,
even if a person is afflicted, the Shariah still does NOT advocate the dajjaali
concept of ‘social distancing’. Islam does not teach us to avoid afflicted people,
unless it adversely affects one’s tawakkul. The Hadith teaches us that there is
NO contagion, except with the permission of Allah Rabbul Izzat.
FOURTHLY: The bogus article gives a small excerpt from Fat-hul Baari (which is
a commentary of Saheeh Bukhaari), thereby perpetuating its deception. The
only sentence they deemed appropriate to add from Fat-hul Baari is: “the
wording (of the hadith) indicates that whoever fulfils the descriptions mentioned
has the reward of a martyr (shahid), even if they didn’t die.” They give the false
impression that whoever sits and skulks in their home during a plague, whether
afflicted or not, will also be rewarded by Allah Ta`ala. They fail to expand on this
Let us study what exactly appears in Fat-hul Baari, with regard to these specific
“Nabi’s (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)statement, ‘There is no slave’, that is Muslim,
‘who is afflicted with plague’, that is, in the place where he is, ‘and he remains in
his hometown,’ in the narration of Ahmed (the words are), ‘in his home,’ and this
(whether the word is ‘locality’ or ‘home’) refers to whichever place he is in but he
remains therein, and he does not go away from there, that is, he does not leave
the place wherein the plague occurred. [Note here is also explained that the
words ‘بيته and بلده ‘both mean the place where the plague occurs, hence it does
NOT mean a literal home or house].
The word ‘patiently’, means that he is not irritated, troubled or vexed and neither
is he anxious, apprehensive nor restless, rather he is at ease and accepts the
Decree of Allah Ta`ala and pleased with his fate. This is the condition for
acquiring the reward of a martyr for that person who dies of the plague. That he
remains in the place where the plague occurs and he does not flee from there as
the prohibition clearly appeared earlier (in another Hadith).”
[Let us look at this in our present context – the government has ordered a
lockdown. People are anxious. Many are frustrated because their daily
movements have been curtailed. All businesspeople, besides those in the
“essential services” industry, are suffering huge losses during this time. Nobody
is really sitting at home happily or content. Also, the majority are terrified of
moving outside and mixing with others for fear of contracting this virus. How far
– very, very far – is this condition (prevalent today) to that described in the Hadith
of being patient and hoping for Divine Pleasure. Based on the comments of the
Muhadditheen, we can safely declare that this virus is not a mercy to our
Muslims but also a calamity and punishment just like it is for the disbelievers.
Far from displaying patience, Muslims are anxious, apprehensive, restless,
irritated, troubled and vexed. And this is the condition of those not even afflicted
by the virus!!!
The Muhadditheen have explained that the prevalence of plagues is a
punishment for both – the disbelievers and transgressing Muslims. After all,
does Allah Ta`ala not warn us in His Kalaam, “Do those who commit sins think
that We will treat them like those who have Imaan and who do good deeds,
making their lives and deaths equal? (They are wrong!) Evil indeed is the
decision they take.” The fact that we have been barred from our own Musaajid
can never be deemed a favourable circumstance. How sad that even ‘muslims’
feel Musaajid should be closed. As long as there is life, the time for reformation
exists. May Allah Ta`ala have mercy on us all.]
“The statement, “Knowing that most certainly nothing will overcome him except
what Allah Ta`ala has decreed for him,” is the other condition. This is a
conditional sentence which relates to his remaining (in his hometown/country).
However, if he remains whilst he is anxious, apprehensive, restless and regretful
of not having went out (of his locality), thinking that had he went away then he
would not have been afflicted in the first place and also that he was afflicted
because he stayed behind. This (attitude and state of mind) will deprive him of
the reward of a martyr, even if he dies of plague.” [Fat-hul Baari, vol. 10, page
This excerpt from Fat-hul Baari, proves that the little excerpt which appeared in
the deceptive article, is not only misleading but gives a totally incorrect
interpretation of the Hadith.
The above commentary also proves, inter alia, that this Hadith refers more
specifically to the person who is afflicted with the plague and not necessarily to
those who are healthy and fit. The reward of martyrdom is applicable only to
those who are afflicted with the plague and either die or survive. Those who are
not afflicted by the plague/virus, need to continue their lives normally, whilst
also remaining in their hometown/country. There is another Hadith that states
everyone who resides in a place which is overcome with a plague should remain
Salaat in congregation is not and never was excused for those who are not
afflicted by the disease/virus. ‘Social distancing’ is not and never was an Islamic
teaching. ‘Muslims’ who wish to practice this should never ever believe that
Islam or the Hadith teaches this. ‘Muslim’ men who wish to perform their Salaat
at home, should never ever think this to be permitted by the Shariah due to the
existence of a plague or virus.
This advice of ours should not be misinterpreted as an advocation of civil
disobedience. We merely wish to highlight the point that Muslims should never
trivialise the Deen and they should never misinterpret the Ahaadith of Nabi
(sallallahu alaihi wasallam) to give sanction to any disobedience to Divine
Injunctions. True Muslims should never believe that the Ahaadith of Nabi
(sallallahu alaihi wasallam) ever condoned such a state upon Muslim men where
they are not allowed to attend the Musaajid for the Fardh Salaat. The Ahaadith
never condoned the concept of ‘social distancing’ merely out of fear of
contracting a virus. The Ahaadith never encouraged Muslim men to remain
skulking in their homes, thereby abandoning congregational Salaat. If the
government imposes this on its citizens, that is one thing. The Shariah should
not be misinterpreted to give an impression of approval. If Muslims are forced
to remain indoors and threatened with legal repercussions for ignoring this law,
they should exercise caution and not challenge the authorities, however at the
same time, they should not and cannot condone this injustice from an Islamic
May Allah Ta`ala have mercy on this Ummah!

  2. HARAAM: Haraam foods are such foods in which the prohibition is clear. There is no doubt in its prohibitions, e.g. haraam meat and food in which haraam ingredients are used.
  3. SPIRITUALLY HARAAM: Halaal food, whether meat or any other kind acquired with unlawful money or by unlawful means. While such food remains halaal, its consumption is haraam for the one who has acquired it by foul or haraam means.
  • MUSTABAH: Such food, the permissibility of which is in doubt. Some factors indicate permissibility while other factors indicate prohibition. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) commanded abstention from such doubtful foods.
  1. PHYSICALLY IMPURE: Generally, the foods prepared in public places such as cafes, restaurants and hotels fall in this classification. Although halaal, such food is not tayyib (wholesome). Some physical dirt and unclean hands, etc. go into its production, hence its contamination.
  2. SPIRITUALLY IMPURE: Such food which is halaal and ordinarily tayyib, but for people of high taqwa (i.e. for the Auliya) even such halaal tayib food constitutes contamination, and impedes their spiritual progress, e.g. halaal tayyib food served by a faasiq or zaalim, halaal tayyib food served with a contaminated worldly motive.


The greater the degree of one’s abstention from contaminated food, the more will on incline towards piety and ibaadat and the converse is also true. Abstention from the first two categories (mentioned above) is Fardh. Eationg such food is a major sin for which Jahannuum is the punishment. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said about those who consume the contaminated food mentioned in these two categories:

“The Fire of Jahannum is more befitting for a human body nourished by haraam.”

The Auliya say that the high stages of piety a man attains are dependent on his halaal and tayyib consumption of food. A man can spend an entire lifetime in abundance of thikr, nafl ibaadat and fasting etc, but as long as the food he consumes is not physically and spiritually pure, he will be deprived of the high stages of taqwa and Divine proximity.


Islam Reigns

By Jamiatul Ulama Gauteng

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

600 years before the birth of the Prophet Isa (عليه السلام), the king of Babylon destroyed the land of Israel. Some men, women and children were even taken as soldiers, and one of the child slaves was DANIYAL (عليه السلام).

The king of Babylon ordered his people to make a grand statue of himself. The people begun worshipping the idol of the king. However, DANIYAL (عليه السلام) never did.

The king of Babylon captured 2 hungry lions and threw DANIYAL near them in order to kill him because he never worshipped his idol. However, the lions did not even touch him because it was Allah تعالى’s command and miracle. Everyone was shocked to see lions doing nothing to DANIYAL (عليه السلام).

Whenever DANIYAL (عليه السلام) would be hungry, Aramaya (عليه السلام) would make food for him from Jerusalem and carry to Babylon…

🎯 The year 2020 is a year of uncertainty, and everyone is justly anxious: *“What’s going to happen in the future?,” ”Is everything we’re hearing through the grapevine about the future New World Order, true?,”* “Are the stats on the Covid deaths true or greatly exaggerated?,” and “Is this a true pandemic, or a fake plandemic to justify the curtailment of some of our future freedoms, and to force vaccinate the entire population?.”

🍉 Everyone has a theory on Covid-19, but what started out to be a *“three week lockdown” in order to “decisively overcome the pandemic”, has now turned to nine months, with talk of a potential second or third wave*. The mainstream media, in cahoots with governments all over the world, have worked lockstep to create *mass hysteria* to the point that many people have died of suicide and depression, rather than a physical virus infecting them. Lockdowns were advised based on the expert opinion of the World Health Organization (WHO), which turned out to be a *huge catastrophe*. As we now stand, thousands of *authentic doctors the world over (independent doctors, not those pushing the confirmed Dajjali WHO agenda) have confirmed that the recovery rate from Covid-19 is 99.2%,* with the elderly and those having co-morbidities most at risk: _“A case of a terrible flu season,” in the words of some._

🥊 During the past nine months, two facts have emerged for me:

🍒 Firstly, we know our *SA government to be as corrupt as a drunken sailor, having scant regard for the safety and wellbeing of its citizens*. Crime and rape is out of control, corruption is on the rise, looting of state coffers continue, the health and educational system is groaning under layers of incompetency, road accidents and drunken driving claim many lives, and the list can go one for another 10 miles. No one cares two hoots. Instead, we have legislation such as land grabbing without compensation, tighter firearm legislation, greater victim rights etc *which seem to deliberately promote lawlessness. Suddenly, the government “cares” for its citizens and imposes an economic lockdown, crippling an already fragile economy*…hey, don’t you smell a very rotten rat here?

⛑️ Let this fact sink in. When a *fire breathing dragon suddenly starts smiling at you, you instantly know something is amiss*. On a typical day, more people get murdered, more women get raped, more people die of TB, of Pneumonia, of Cancer, but no lockdown? In fact, I’ll take it a step further to say that our politicians *have been commanded and instructed to create havoc in their countries and deliberately destabilize them*. We even have political parties whose only job is to incite towards violence, create hatred for other ethnicities, and create a big fuss over trivial things like shampoo adverts – all in the name of “economic freedom.” The two main political parties in SA *play “good cop, bad cop,” fooling everyone. One party creates mischief, and the other pretends to uncover corruption and restore order.*

🍷 But there is a logic behind this madness. The logic is simple: *people should become extremely frustrated with their governments and revolt against them*. Remember, no politician of rank is ever neutral or uncontrolled. When the puppets eventually fall, then the *puppet master makes his grand appearance as the “Saviour/Dajjal” – the one to save all from doom and gloom, only to cause more doom and gloom*. At the moment, this grand game is being synchronized across almost every country of the world.

💙 South Africa, like almost all other countries of the world, had been *registered as a Private Corporation way back in 1998 (reg no. 0000932419), with the Securities Exchange Commission of New York and London.* South Africa is not a Republic, but a wholly owned commercial corporation. Taxes first go towards servicing our national debt, which eventually finds its way into the *pockets of private individuals*. The US decides how much funds this country needs to spend on herself, on roads, health, policing and education, after it has taken the lions share. The immense funds pumped into world economies during the *Covid-plandemic has ensured total subservience of every government to Dajjal for the next 100 years.*

🧊 Now, every individual must also be brought under control, and this brings me to my second point: *the imposition of vaccinations, after a fake plandemic, in order to justify its compulsory nature in the name of “public safety.”*

🦯🦯 Vaccinations has been thought to be a very controversial topic for many decades now, but I really don’t think so. *The concept of “vaccinations” is not controversial at all, but we’re made to think so by the mainstream western media that there’s an ignorant and extremist element out there called “Anti-Vaxxers” who need to be opposed at all costs.* Let’s call this group who love coining phrases such as “anti-semitists,” “terrorists” etc, the *“Pro-Dajjal” group (or the “Modern Bio-Terrorists”) because that’s exactly who they serve – Dajjal (the Anti-Christ).* This same group also coined the term “conspiracy theorists” to *discredit anyone using his or her brains to question to the utter hogwash the mainstream media wants us to believe in.*

👜 Basically, a vaccine is a *biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular infectious disease.* It contains agents that resemble the disease-causing microorganism, and it’s often made from the weakened form of the microbe itself. When injected with this vaccine, the body *develops immunity to that disease without having to catch it first.* So, basically, a vaccine is like a jacket on a very cold winter day. One wears the jacket before venturing outdoors before the cold temperature affects him – not after being affected. Edward Jenner is considered the founder of vaccinology in England (1796), after he inoculated a 13 year-old-boy with the vaccinia virus (cowpox). But the west loves to claim credit where it’s not due, because for many hundreds of moons already, hunters and soldiers would consume very small amounts of snake or scorpion venom in order to develop immunity from snake bites whilst hunting, or to protect themselves from overt causes of assassination.

🌶️ So, no one is against the vaccines, but what they are concerned about are some of the *hidden ingredients therein.* Visit the official website of the CDC, and click on this link:

🌶️ From the mouth of the *official horse*, you will find the following ingredients listed in various vaccines:

🍏 *Formaldehyde/Formalin* – Highly toxic systematic poison and carcinogen.

🍏 *Betapropiolactone* – Toxic chemical and carcinogen. May cause death/permanent injury after very short exposure to small quantities. Corrosive chemical.

🍏*Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide* – May cause damage to the liver, cardiovascular system, and central nervous system. May cause reproductive effects and birth defects.

🍓 *Aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, and aluminum salts* – Neurotoxin. Carries risk for long term brain inflammation/swelling, neurological disorders, autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism. It penetrates the brain where it persists indefinitely.

🍏 *Thimerosal (mercury) – Neurotoxin*. Induces cellular damage, reduces oxidation-reduction activity, cellular degeneration, and cell death. Linked to neurological disorders, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism.

🍏 *Polysorbate 80 & 20* – Trespasses the Blood-Brain Barrier and carries with it aluminum, thimerosal, and viruses; allowing it to enter the brain.

🍏 *Glutaraldehyde* – Toxic chemical used as a disinfectant for heat sensitive medical equipment.

🍏 *Fetal Bovine Serum* – Harvested from bovine (cow) fetuses taken from pregnant cows before slaughter.

🍏 *Human Diploid Fibroblast Cells* – aborted fetal cells. Foreign DNA has the ability to interact with our own.

🍏 *African Green Monkey Kidney Cells* – Can carry the SV-40 cancer-causing virus that has already tainted about 30 million Americans.

🍏 *Acetone* – Can cause kidney, liver, and nerve damage.

🍏 *E.Coli* – Yes, you read that right.

🍏 DNA from *porcine (pig)* Circovirus type-1

🍏 *Human embryonic lung cell cultures* (from aborted fetuses)

🔥🔥 If normal vaccines carry such huge amounts of trash, then the *purported Covid-19 vaccine takes the concept of vaccines to an altogether new level*. It may be given in stages, a few days apart, or every year, but already the WHO (World *Hoax* Organisation) claims that it may not provide full cover, only partial cover. So, a new version of the vaccine will have to be taken every year to cater for the new mutations. *If majority of people got certain cure from Covid-19 by means of various herbal and allopathic medicines, what would be the need to inject oneself to obtain uncertain cure?*

🧠🧠 The purported vaccine will also have an *illuminum, called Luciferace.* These are nanoparticles, coupled with other undisclosed ingredients within the vaccine’s bio-chemical properties, capable of not only piercing the *blood-brain barrier, but can also be linked to certain radiation towers like 5G or 6G* in order to *modify behavior and influence belief and thought.* These toxic particles can enter the brain and stay there for decades, causing an epidemic of neuro-psychological issues and chronic inflammation. Outbreaks such as *Alzheimers, Autism, ADHD, Autism, ADD, Seizures, Asthma* and host of other unknown side-effects may be mainfested. How this happens is by a process called “Molecular Mimicry”, whence the body sees those proteins, thinking it’s foreign, but then it finds some of those same “foreign” proteins in the body, and so it rejects all those proteins – the authentic and the fake – from the body. Basically, our natural auto-immune system, designed to protect us from *foreign invaders, starts attacking itself*.

🙈 If you really want to take the vaccine, ask for *full disclosure of the ingredients and have it independently verified. Have your lawyer present, and sign a R200 million liability clause in case of vaccine injury,* to be deposited into a trust account and returned within a few months or years, if there are no side-effects. See if any government will agree to this.

👉👉 By now, you may have already grasped Dajjal’s master plan. The idea is *not to protect you, but to control you*. The vaccinated will be given a health *passport ID system (a form of biometric identity card)* to control international travel, access job opportunities, driving licenses, governmental schooling, working within the corporate, banking, financial, and government sector etc, but the *unvaccinated will not be allowed these privileges, even though they may be healthier than the former group.*

🎩🎩 This is why I call the end-result of the Covid vaccine *“Dajjal’s heaven or hell”.* Those who succumb to it, will enter his heaven, which will be hell in reality. Those who refuse, will enter his hell, but will be in heaven instead, *under the protection and mercy of our Almighty. Dajjal’s heaven will promise some temporary privileges, but it leads to eternal hell;* his hell will seem fiery, but it will be enjoyed by the belivers, just like *Prophet Abraham’s cool fire.*

As-Salamu ‘Alaikum

An interesting discovery was made by the world of science just last month, October 2020.

It seems some salivary glands in the human body as we know it, were just “discovered” and had been hitherto unknown to mankind (sciencekind).

The evolutionists want us to believe in their rubbish theory that man evolved from monkeys as the absolute incontestable truth of human life’s origin. We are expected to bow our heads in utter submission to a theory that claims to know all the little and great secrets of human life tens of thousands of years before now, when scientists in our own times do not know everything about human life as they see it right before their eyes!

And I thought that big bad orange man is too arrogant to concede!

Given modern technology, one might assume we already know all parts of the human body. We’re taught at…

How Do YOU React To Hardship & Ease?

Allāh has kept it no secret: as long as man lives, he shall not be left alone.

Tests from all corners of life will be thrown at him in order to uncover his essence and exhibit his core. Indeed, how many a times has one assumed to know another before the latter is tested? The one we had assumed was generous, brave, and wise turns out to be a lowly, selfish and cowardly miser. Conversely, how many times have our eyes looked beyond certain individuals whose voices are not heard and whose deeds are not particularly spectacular, only to be awe-struck by them during testing times when they exhibit unfettered generosity, lion-like bravery, and mountain-like steadfastness?

All things have been created with purpose. Paradise for pleasure, Hell for suffering, and the life of today for tests. Allāh said:

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا فِي قَرْيَةٍ مِنْ نَبِيٍّ إِلَّا أَخَذْنَا أَهْلَهَا بِالْبَأْسَاءِ وَالضَّرَّاءِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَضَّرَّعُونَ

“Never have We sent a Prophet to a place without testing its people with adversity and hardship so that they may humble themselves.”[1]

The reality, however, is a bitter one. Not everyone humbles themselves in repentance after tests. Indeed, a select minority does, but the reactions of the rest of humanity vary immensely – not only in the face of difficulties, but also during times of ease. It really is a fascinating observation, one that is particularly relevant in light of the current global pandemic that has not spared a single household from its grip.

Broadly, there are four distinct categories of people in times of ease and hardship. Which of the four do you fit in? Measure yourself against the following:

The first category: Those who turn to Allāh during times of ease and ignore Him during times of difficulty

Speaking about this category of people, Allāh said:

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ عَلَى حَرْفٍ فَإِنْ أَصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ اطْمَأَنَّ بِهِ وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ فِتْنَةٌ انْقَلَبَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ خَسِرَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةَ ذَلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ

“And of the people is he who worships Allāh on an edge; if he is touched by good, he is reassured by it, but if he is struck by trial, he turns on his face [to unbelief]. He has lost [this] world and the Hereafter. That is the clearest loss.”[2]

For this category of people, their commitment to Islam only lasts as far as they live a life of wellbeing and prosperity. Should a challenge interrupt their routine, they are the quickest to drop it all, turning to anything for relief, whether it is an ex-partner, pornography, drugs, abandonment of salāh – anything but Allāh. In fact, the reason for revelation of the verse above is a telling one.

A Jewish man once said to the Prophet Mohammad (sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam):

أدع لي ربك ان يرزقني مالا وإبلا وخيلا وولدا حتى أؤمن بك

“Call upon your Lord to give me wealth, camels, horses, and children so that I believe in you.”

The Prophet (sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) did so, and Allāh granted this man his requests, after which he embraced Islam. However, Allāh had wished to test him. These blessings were soon taken away from him, and so the man left Islam. Allāh then revealed the verse above.[3]

Ibn ‘Abbās said:

 كان الرجل يقدم المدينة فان ولدت امرأته غلاماً أو نتجت خيله قال: هذا دينٌ صالح وان لم تلد امرأته ولم تنتج خيله قال : هذا دين سوء

“There were some who would arrive at Madina. If their wives gave birth to children and their camels produced calves, they would say, ‘This is a righteous religion.’ However, if their wives and camels failed to reproduce, they would say, ‘This is an evil religion.’”[4]

This category of people is common and include:

– A spouse who remains faithful so long as their spouse is, too, faithful. Should unfaithfulness happen, however, the other spouse takes the first opportunity for vengeance by doing the same so that they “get a feel” of what they felt. All along, their chastity was not for Allāh – it was conditional upon a worldly gain. Hence, when that gain disappeared, they let themselves go.

– A sister whose hijāb is pristine and salāh on time so long as her marital life is in place. However, should her marriage end in divorce, her religious life is cast aside, her salāh is dismissed, and the hijāb becomes no more. All of it was conditional on her marriage.

– A Muslim (revert or otherwise) whose commitment to Islam is on point so long as parents or friends do not turn against them. Should that happen, they show no hesitation in shelving Islam both inwardly and outwardly.

The religiosity of this category of people is conditional; steadfastness upon Islam as long as they enjoy a relatively problem-free life. Any obstacles along the way sees them opt out of the religion (or at least many parts of it) in no time.

The second category: Those who turn to Allāh during times of difficulty and ignore Him during times of ease

This group has arguably received the most attention from the Qur’ān. For this category, so long as they are fit, well, and prosperous, Allāh does not appear in their conversations or decisions. It takes a seismic adversity to send them back to Allāh in desperation.

Allāh said:

وَإِذَا مَسَّ الْإِنْسَانَ الضُّرُّ دَعَانَا لِجَنْبِهِ أَوْ قَاعِدًا أَوْ قَائِمًا فَلَمَّا كَشَفْنَا عَنْهُ ضُرَّهُ مَرَّ كَأَنْ لَمْ يَدْعُنَا إِلَى ضُرٍّ مَسَّهُ

“Whenever adversity touches the human being, he prays to Us, reclining on his side, or sitting, or standing. But when We have relieved his adversity from him, he goes away as though he had never called on Us for trouble that had afflicted him.”[5]

And Allah said:

وَإِذَا أَنْعَمْنَا عَلَى الْإِنْسَانِ أَعْرَضَ وَنَأَى بِجَانِبِهِ وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ فَذُو دُعَاءٍ عَرِيضٍ

“When We provide comfort for the human being, he withdraws and distances himself, but when adversity befalls him, he starts lengthy prayers.”[6]

When the situation is dire – upcoming exams, plummeting investments, crumbling relationships, worrying medical diagnoses – this category of people will rediscover Allāh. When that dark cloud begins to pass, and when safety and relief erase fear and grief, the previously intense du’ā, punctual salāh, and distancing from sins bid the person farewell.

The arrogance of this category and their utter ingratitude to their Lord is beyond measure. The most famous example is that of the Pharaoh of Egypt, who spent a lifetime crushing his people and calling to the deification of himself. During his hour of need as he drowned, he finally turned to Allāh in desperation, saying:

آمَنْتُ أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا الَّذِي آمَنَتْ بِهِ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ وَأَنَا مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ

“I believe that there is no god except the One the Children of Israel believe in, and I am of those who submit!”[7]

The angels heard this late plea of his, and Jibrīl would descend not as a saviour but to thrust the sea sand into the Pharaoh’s mouth, fearing that Allāh’s mercy would descend upon the Pharaoh. It would not, and the Pharaoh’s pleas were rejected:

آلْآنَ وَقَدْ عَصَيْتَ قَبْلُ وَكُنْتَ مِنَ الْمُفْسِدِينَ * فَالْيَوْمَ نُنَجِّيكَ بِبَدَنِكَ لِتَكُونَ لِمَنْ خَلْفَكَ آيَةً وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنَ النَّاسِ عَنْ آيَاتِنَا لَغَافِلُونَ

“Now? When you have rebelled before and had been of the mischief-makers? Today We will preserve your body [corpse] so that you become a sign for those after you. Most people are heedless of Our signs.”[8]

Allāh does not punish from the very first slip. Chances are given, reminders are sent, sins are veiled, and punishment is compassionately delayed repeatedly. Nothing will snap a person into realisation and a penitent retreat more than a devastating calamity.

A thief was presented to ‘Umar (rady Allāhu ‘anhu). Shortly before his hand was amputated, the thief yelled: “Woe to me! This was my first time stealing!” to which ‘Umar responded:

ﻛﺬﺑﺖ ﻭﺭﺏ ﻋﻤﺮ، ﻣﺎ ﺃﺳﻠﻢ اﻟﻠﻪ ﻋﺒﺪا ﻋﻨﺪ ﺃﻭﻝ ﺫﻧﺐ

“I swear by my Lord, you speak a lie! Allāh would never punish a person following his very first sin.”[9]

Shame on man for needing devastating events to bring him back to his senses. A major illness which deprives him for sleep, forcing him back to the prayer mat five times a day, or crippling anxiety which forces him to accept the wrong of his alcohol, drugs, or interest-based business.

Shame on man for only rediscovering passionate du’ādhikr, and the Qur’ān following threats of being exposed for illicit behaviour.

Shame on man for needing his wife to walk away from him irreparably for being unfaithful, forcing him to realise the blessing that he once had at home all along.

Shame on man for needing calamities to corner Him into thanking Allāh and forcing him to appreciate His blessings.

If you are feeling healthy, safe from harm, and veiled from shame at this moment, then take the hint: remove yourself from this second category of people and be of those who glorify Allāh in all circumstances, not just when you are lost for options.

The third category: Those who ignore Allāh during both times of ease and hardship

For this category of people, nothing brings about Allāh’s remembrance. Prosperity is simply “luck”, whilst adversity is mere “misfortune”. These people will give it any description as long as it does not involve Allāh.

Speaking about this group – the worst of the four – Allāh said:

 وَإِذَا أَنْعَمْنَا عَلَى الْإِنْسَانِ أَعْرَضَ وَنَأَى بِجَانِبِهِ وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ كَانَ يَئُوسًا

“When We grant people Our favours, they turn away, acting arrogantly. But when touched with evil, they lose all hope.”[10]

And said:

إِنَّ الْإِنْسَانَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعًا (19) إِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ جَزُوعًا (20) وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الْخَيْرُ مَنُوعًا

“Indeed, mankind was created anxious: impatient when touched with evil, and withholding when touched with good”[11]

Regardless of which way they take, their flame of imān remains blown out. Their ears, eyes, and hearts have been firmly sealed. Even if every circumstance changes, they will not.

Consider the late Christopher Hitchens, who lived his life as an anti-theist arguing a case against God. His diagnosis of cancer towards the latter part of his life did not cause a shift in his position. Hitchens maintained his devout atheism until the very end, and insisting: “No evidence or argument has yet been presented which would change my mind. But I like surprises.”[12]

Consider Abu Jahl, described by the Prophet (sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) as the ‘Pharaoh of this nation’. Abu Jahl led military campaigns against the Muslims, personally seeing to the persecution of believing men and women. Abu Jahl took charge of the defamation of the Prophet (sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and the Muslims. This was his hallmark during his time of ease, which extended until his very last moments as he bled to death at the Battle of Badr. His Godlessness did not change.

After the Battle of Badr, ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ūd saw Abu Jahl lying on the ground, taking his final breaths. He placed his foot over his neck – surely a humbling experience one would have thought – to which Abu Jahl muttered:

لَقَدْ ارْتَقَيْتَ مُرْتَقًى صَعْبًا يَا رُوَيْعِي الْغَنَمِ

“You have ascended a mighty mount, you pathetic shepherd.”[13]

This is an accurate depiction of what this third category of people are all about: blind during times of ease and heedless during times of difficulty.

The fourth category: Those who turn to Allāh during times of ease and difficulty

These are the very finest of human beings – the saints of Islam and the truest allies of Allāh. They are clearly identifiable and together share the same characteristics:

They interpret every experience of life, both the happy and miserable, as a test

They recognise that the entire spectrum – from extreme hardship to extreme ease and all that is in between – is a test from Allāh. They make sure to announce this at their every experience.

Take the example of Prophet Sulaymān. Seeing the power that Allāh had endowed him, where Jinn competed to serve him and deliver the thrones of kings to him from continent to continent, Prophet Sulaymān proclaimed:

هَذَا مِنْ فَضْلِ رَبِّي لِيَبْلُوَنِي أَأَشْكُرُ أَمْ أَكْفُرُ

“This is from the favour of my Lord to test me whether I will be grateful or ungrateful.”[14]

They are fully aware that the greatest guarantor of blessings is gratitude

The equation, as far as they are concerned, is very clear: the greater the gratitude, the greater the preservation of blessings.

This is why Prophet Sulaymān would become intensely grateful before Allāh at the remembrance of any blessing, knowing that this is the fuel needed for the continuity of such blessings. On one such day, it occurred to him just how gifted he had been to hear and understand the language of ants, so he said:

رَبِّ أَوْزِعْنِي أَنْ أَشْكُرَ نِعْمَتَكَ الَّتِي أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيَّ وَعَلَى وَالِدَيَّ وَأَنْ أَعْمَلَ صَالِحًا تَرْضَاهُ وَأَدْخِلْنِي بِرَحْمَتِكَ فِي عِبَادِكَ الصَّالِحِينَ

“My Lord, inspire me to be thankful for Your favours which You have blessed me and my parents with, and to do good deeds that please you. Admit me, by Your mercy, into the company of Your righteous servants.”[15]

In the dawn of every blessing that renews itself in the lives of this blessed category of people – when he sees his children running around playfully and healthily, or when his wife calls him to say “hurry, the food is getting cold!”, dinner, or when he cleans himself after using the bathroom in a dignified fashion without needing help, or when he puts food into his mouth without the need of pipes and needles – their hearts are quick to submit in sincere gratitude to Allāh. The words of Prophet Sulaymān above are repeated, as are those by the Prophet Muhammad (sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam):

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ زَوَالِ نِعْمَتِكَ، وَتَحَوُّلِ عَافِيَتِكَ، وَفُجَاءَةِ نِقْمَتِكَ، وَجَمِيعِ سَخَطِكَ

“O Allāh, I seek refuge in You from the decline of Your blessings, the removal of Your safety, the sudden onset of Your punishment, and from all that displeases You.”[16]

They recognise that their good deeds today are stored for the rainy days to come.

The Qur’ān has given us two examples of people who experienced a calamity by way of the sea. The first is the Pharaoh of Egypt, and the second is Prophet Yūnus (‘alayhi al-Salām). Both suffered in similar ways and both begged from the same God for help. However, their outcomes were the polar opposite: one was drowned to death, whilst the other was saved. The reason for this is simple: during their times of ease, they were two very different people.

The du’ā of the Pharaoh was rejected and Allāh said to him: “Now? And you had disobeyed before and were of the corrupters?”[17]

On the other hand, the du’ā of Prophet Yūnus was answered, and Allāh said: “And thus we save the believers.”[18]

Prophet Yūnus was righteous, penitent, and hardworking before his trial, so when it arrived, it was quick to depart. Allāh said about Prophet Yūnus:

فَلَوْلَا أَنَّهُ كَانَ مِنَ الْمُسَبِّحِينَ (143) لَلَبِثَ فِي بَطْنِهِ إِلَى يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ

And had he not been of those who glorified Allāh, He would have remained inside its belly [i.e. of the whale] until the Day of Resurrection.”[19]

Commenting on this, Qatāda said:

كان كثير الصَّلاةِ في الرّخاء، فنجَّاه الله بذلك; قال: وقد كان يقال في الحكمة: إن العمل الصالح يرفع صاحبه إذا ما عَثَر، فإذا صُرع وجد متكئا

“He [Prophet Yūnus] would pray abundantly during times of ease, and so Allāh saved him through that. It used to be said: ‘Good deeds carry a person when he slips, but should he fall, he will find something to lean on.’”[20]

Thus, when the trial of Prophet Yūnus eventually arrived, its effects were lessened and its end was relief.

The exact same can be said about the famous story of the three men who retreated to a cave from the torrential rain. The three men then became trapped by a falling boulder that sealed the entrance of the cave. Screaming for help was pointless, crying would not avail them, and their arms were no match for the mighty rock before them. This calamity could not have been any darker.

There, the three men discussed what to do and unanimously agreed that their escape can only be through one method: du’ā that includes the mention of a  good deed that they had performed solely for Allāh’s pleasure during their times of ease. So, they began:

The first man, in du’ā, relayed a time when he gave preference to his parents over his children when it came to providing them their daily milk. The second man relayed a moment when he walked away from fornication in the nick of time. The third man relayed an awe-inspiring moment of honesty in a business matter. No sooner had they completed their du’ā than the rock shifted from its place and they were set free. Their investment in doing good deeds during times of ease saved them in their darkest hour of need.

In summary, this fourth category of people refuse to allow calamities – whether it is the current pandemic or otherwise – to mark the beginning of their relationship with Allāh, punctual salāh, and repentance. Instead, they lead lives of hardwork, patience, gratitude, and steadfastness around the clock and across borders, inspired by the guidance of the Prophet Muhammad (sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) who said:

مَنْ سَرَّهُ أَنْ يَسْتَجِيبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ عِنْدَ الشَّدَائِدِ وَالْكُرَبِ فَلْيُكْثِرِ الدُّعَاءَ فِي الرَّخَاءِ

“Whoever wishes that Allāh would respond to him during hardship and grief, then let him make plentifully du’ā when at ease.”[21]

And by his guidance when he said:

تَعرفْ إلى اللهِ في الرخاءِ يعرفْكَ في الشدةِ

“Know Allāh during times of ease, and Allāh will know you during times of hardship.”[22]

Kitaabul Meeraath (The Book of Inheritance)

Kitaabul Meeraath (The Book of Inheritance)

Kitaabul Meeraath (The Book of Inheritance) is an attempt to explain Islamic Inheritance to ordinary Muslims. This subject which concerns every Muslim is about the most neglected branch of Islamic Knowledge. Most Muslims are grossly ignorant of the Ahkam (laws) of inheritance. Even pious and learned people commit grave errors in this matter. 

Muslims largely ignorant of the Shariah’s demands pertaining to inheritance, direct the distribution of their estates in accordance with the unfettered freedom or in terms of certain restrictions of western Kuffar law. Having opted ignorantly for some western matrimonial property system, Muslims are precluded from drawing up Islamic Wills. Others again, simply do not care of the dire consequences awaiting them in the Akhirah, hence they bequeath their estates as directed by their whimsical desires. 

Kitaabul Meeraath deals with both the Shar’i legal and moral aspects pertaining to inheritance. It is hoped that Allah Ta’ala will make this humble effort a means of hidayat (guidance) for Muslims so that they understand the gravity of their transgressions in the sphere of inheritance. 

Although effort has been made to simplify this subject, we are aware that many Muslims will find it difficult to comprehend the many rules of inheritance. Undoubtedly Meeraath is a difficult subject with its numerous different cases, classes and categories being somewhat confusing. While this book will assist in giving a better understanding of the workings and importance of Meeraath, it is necessary for the layman to consult with an Alim who is proficient in this subject, before effecting the distribution of the estate. 

The Qur’an Majeed and the Ahadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam) apply great emphasis on the importance of Meeraath. It does, therefore, not behove the Muslim to depart from this transitory abode with the accursed burden of the transgression which he has loaded onto himself by way of his unjust violation of Allah’s orders of inheritance.

Kitaabul Meeraath


Allah Ta’ala states: “Verily, the Deen by Allah is only Islam.” (Surah Aal-e-Imraan, Aayat 19) Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “Bani Israeel (the Jews) split up into seventy-two sects and my Ummah will split into seventy-three sects. All, except one, will be in the Fire.’ The Sahaabah asked: ‘Which is that (one sect), O Rasulullah?’ Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: ‘That group which is on my path and that of my Sahaabah.”
The only valid Imaan, is the Imaan acquired from the Sahaabah – the Imaan of the Ummah: “If they believe like your belief (like that Islam which you believe in), then only will they be on guidance.” (Surah Baqarah, Aayat 137) By Allah, there is only one Faith, and that is Islam as understood with the greatest clarity from the Aayat quoted right at the beginning. Never ever does Allah accept any religion nor any multifaith concept, and those who search for any other religion or seek to integrate religions and to placate the kuffaar by condonation of their kufr and shirk, are accursed Munaafiqeen. The Qur’aan very emphatically says: “Whoever searches for a deen other than Islam, never ever shall it be accepted from him, and in the Aakhirah he will be among the losers (destined for HellFire).” (Surah Aal-e-Imraan, Aayat 85) Every Muslim is aware of the indisputable Qur’aanic fact that the Kuffaar are destined for everlasting residency and perdition in Jahannam. “Whoever practises righteous deeds, be it male or female, while he (or she) is a Mu’min, verily, they (Believers) will enter Jannat.” (Surah Mu’min, Aayat 40) It is abundantly clear from the above-cited Aayat, that righteous deeds are acceptable to Allah Ta’ala only if Imaan is present. Without Imaan, righteous deeds are not accepted for reward in the Aakhirah, hence the Aayat says: ‘While he (or she) is a Mu’min.’ Thus the basis of acceptable virtuous deeds is Imaan. Entry into Jannah –
Najaat in the Aakhirah – is dependent on Imaan according to the Qur’aan Shareef.
“Those who are Kaafir their (good) deeds are like glittering sand in a plain,
which a thirsty person thinks to be water (i.e. like a mirage). But when he (the thirsty one) reaches it, he finds it to be nothing…” (Surah Nur, Aayat 39)
The above Aayat states explicitly that righteous deeds of the Kuffaar are of no significance insofar as the Aakhirah is concerned. Righteous deeds on the foundations of kufr resemble mirages. Such righteousness is not acceptable to Allah Ta’ala. We are bound by the Shariah to accept and submit to every belief and practice of Islam. We realize from the Qur’aan Shareef and the Ahaadith that the most valuable treasure is Imaan and the greatest calamity is Kufr. Everlasting bliss is the result of Imaan while everlasting damnation is the consequence of Kufr.
What is Imaan and what is Kufr? It is of vital importance to understand properly the Islamic conceptions of Imaan and Kufr. Salvation in the Hereafter pivots on Imaan while perpetual loss and disaster will be the compensation of Kufr. A thorough understanding of these two concepts is thus imperative. In these times of liberalism, ignorance and materialism great havoc has been wrought to the pure Imaan of numerous Muslims not versed in Islamic knowledge. The modernist Zindeeqs, heavily influenced by westernism with its accompaniment of kufr theories, have thrown many unwary Muslims into confusion and doubt by attributing fanciful interpretations to Imaan. The clear, explicit and well-defined Islamic concept of Imaan has been made to appear as incorporating all theories and
views of kufr. On the basis of such ambiguous Imaan, one subscribing to kufr remains a Muslim in the opinion of modernist Zindeeqs. In view of this lamentable situation, there is a dire need for a thorough explanation of the Islamic concepts of Imaan and Kufr so that Muslims become aware of the
snares of deception strewn about them – snares which will entrap them, destroy their Imaan and their Aakhirah. Thus, we need to be thoroughly grounded in the details of Imaan, i.e. we need to ensure that we have correct beliefs (Aqaaid).
Considering the snares of deception which have to be refuted, it has been brought to our notice that some chap from the Cape, Abraham DaFool who is notorious for his Kufr and for his dalliance with the scrap Kufr Cape Accord which was primarily in justification of the Shia Kuffaar, has recently claimed that an Archbishop deserves Jannat because of his ‘justice’!!! May Allah save us from such Kufr. Aameen
The Ibleesi claim of Abraham DaFool is palpable Kufr. It expels from the fold of Islam a person who subscribes to it. This Kufr belief violently militates against the Qur’aan and Ahaadith. Subjecting the Qur’aan and Ahaadith to personal interpretation, whim and fancy is Zandaqah (heresy, blasphemy) which negates Imaan. The criteria for Jannat is Imaan, not ‘justice’! Kufr is injustice – the worst! Without subscribing to the concept of Imaan propounded by the Qur’aan, the consequence is only everlasting Jahannam. There are numerous Qur’aanic Aayaat debunking the Kufr of Abraham DaFool of which a few will be mentioned below. Regarding the everlasting nature of the stay of the Kuffaar, Allah Ta’ala states:
“Whoever disobeys Allah and His Rasool, then verily for them is the Fire of
Jahannam wherein they will dwell forever.” (Surah Jinn, Aayat 23)
“Verily Allah cursed the Kaafireen and has prepared for them the Scorching Fire wherein they will dwell forever. They will not find a friend nor a helper.
That day when their faces will be grilled in the Fire, they will exclaim: ‘Would that we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Rasool.’ And they will say: ‘O our Rabb, verily we had obeyed our leaders and our seniors. Then they deviated us from the (STRAIGHT) Path. Our Rabb! Give them a double punishment, and curse them a great curse.’” (Surah Ahzaab, Aayaat 64 – 68)
“And whoever does not have Imaan in Allah Ta’ala and His Rasool
(Muhammad-Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) verily, We have prepared for the
kaafireen (the rejectors of Imaan) a blazing fire.” (Surah Fath, Aayat 13)
“Say (O Muhammad!): Obey Allah Ta’ala and the Rasool (Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). And, if you turn away (from this belief), then
verily, Allah Ta’ala does not love the kaafireen.” (Surah Aal-e-Imraan, Aayat 32)
“Verily, the worst of creatures by Allah are those who commit kufr, thus they have no Imaan.” (Surah Anfaal, Aayat 55)
“Verily, they spoke a word of kufr, and they committed kufr after their Islam, and they conspired such things (objectives) which they could not attain.” (Surah Taubah, Aayat 74)
KUFR is the worst form of zulm (oppression/injustice)! Allah Ta’ala states: “Verily Shirk (Kufr) is Colossal Zulm”. (Surah Luqman, Aayat 13)
Now what do archbishops propagate??? Do archbishops accept the Kalimah of Islam? Do archbishops, priests and pastors propagate that Nabi Isa Alayhis Salaam is not God? Do reverends and archbishops believe in Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam? Do they even accept Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam?
When the archbishop is guilty of compound Kufr and Shirk, and when even a small child knows that only Muslims will go to Jannat, then it reveals the Kufr status of Abraham DaFool who avers that people of Kufr are deserving of Jannat. Abraham DaFool is not ignorant of the fact that according to the Law of Allah, only Muslims will go to Jannat. But Abraham DaFool openly propagates views in conflict with the Qur’aan. He treats the Aqaaid of Islam very lightly and publicly opposes what Allah Ta’ala has stated in the Qur’aan! This renders him a Murtad besides all the other acts of kufr which he is guilty of. He should not pretend to be a Muslim. Kufr and Imaan are mutually repellent. May Allah grant us Maut upon Imaan. Aameen
“What! Do you believe in part of the Kitaab and commit kufr with part? The punishment for any of you who does so, is nothing but disgrace in this worldly life, and on the Day of Qiyaamah, they shall be driven to the worst of punishment.” (Surah Baqarah, Aayat 85)

Promoting one’s business through Black Friday sales

Q: Is it allowed for Muslim businessmen to promote their business through having Black Friday sales?

A: As far as Black Friday is concerned, it should be understood that it is a business and shopping event which the kuffaar promote. Though this is not a kuffaar celebration, it is among the prominent annual events which the kuffaar promote. Just as the kuffaar promote sports and sporting events and attach great significance to them, similarly they promote these types of events to boost their business and satisfy their greed. Hence, these events are part of the kuffaar culture.

We should bear in mind that we are not only prohibited from emulating the kuffar in their religious celebrations such as Christmas, Easter, Diwali, etc, but are also prohibited from emulating them in their ways, fashions, events and culture such as birthday parties, business and wedding anniversaries, valentine’s day, mother’s day, father’s day, women’s day, new year’s day, etc. In essence, all these events belong to the kuffaar culture and are alien to Islam and Islamic culture.

A Muslim should understand that all these events have nothing to do with Islam. A believer should not promote kuffaar traditions and customs nor involve himself in them. Rather, he should remain steadfast upon the Sunnah and not be swayed by the alien culture of the kuffaar. We have been commanded in the Hadith to refrain from emulating the kuffaar as well as adopting their ways. Hence, a Muslim should refrain from having Black Friday sales as this is not part of the Islamic Culture.

As believers, we believe that true respect, honour and dignity can only be attained by following the pristine, pure teachings of Islam and the Mubaarak Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). If we seek honour and respect elsewhere, we will bring nothing but disgrace and humiliation to ourselves. Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has emphasized:

إنا كنا أذل قوم فأعزنا الله بالإسلام فمهما نطلب العز بغير ما أعزنا الله به أذلنا الله

“We were the most disgraced of people. Allah Ta’ala then gave us honour through Islam. If we ever seek honour in something besides that through which Allah Ta’ala has honoured us (Islam), Allah Ta’ala will disgrace us.”

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.

وَلَا تَرۡکَنُوۡۤا اِلَی الَّذِیۡنَ ظَلَمُوۡا فَتَمَسَّکُمُ النَّارُ ۙ وَمَا لَکُمۡ مِّنۡ دُوۡنِ اللّٰهِ مِنۡ اَوۡلِیَآءَ ثُمَّ لَاتُنۡصَرُوۡنَ (هود: 113)

Regarding the vaccine poison, a Brother sent the following information:

“I gathered all vaccine ingredients into a list and contacted Poison Control. After intros and such, and asking to speak with someone tenured and knowledgeable, this is the gist of that conversation.

Me: My question to you is how are these ingredients categorized? As benign or poison? (I ran a few ingredients, formaldehyde, Tween 80, mercury, aluminum, phenoxyethanol, potassium phosphate, sodium phosphate, sorbitol, etc.)

He: Well, that’s quite a list… But I’d have to easily say that they’re all toxic to humans… Used in fertilizers… Pesticides… To stop the heart… To preserve a dead body… They’re registered with us in different categories, but pretty much poisons. Why?

Me: If I were deliberately to feed or inject my child with these ingredients often, as a schedule, obviously I’d put my daughter in harm’s way… But what would legally happen to me?

He: Odd question… But you’d likely be charged with criminal negligence… perhaps with intent to kill… and of course child abuse… Your child would be taken away from you… Do you know of someone’s who’s doing this to their child? This is criminal…

Me: An industry… These are the ingredients used in vaccines… With binding agents to make sure the body won’t flush these out… To keep the antibody levels up indefinitely…

He: WHAT?!

Your conclusion?

The man was beside himself. He asked if I would email him all this information. He wanted to share it with his adult kids who are parents. He was horrified and felt awful he didn’t know… his kids are vaccinated and they have health issues…”

✅ Detox & Cleanse * Educate *Support

✅INGREDIENTS TO VACCINES – You CANNOT make an educated decision without being educated.

Here are just SOME vaccine ingredients.

These are being INJECTED into your kids;

◾Formaldehyde/Formalin – Highly toxic systematic poison and carcinogen.

◾Betapropiolactone – Toxic chemical and carcinogen. May cause death/permanant injury after very short exposure to small quantities. Corrosive chemical.

◾Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide – May cause damage to the liver, cardiovascular system, and central nervous system. May cause reproductive effects and birth defects.

◾Aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, and aluminum salts – Neurotoxin. Carries risk for long term brain inflammation/swelling, neurological disorders, autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism. It penetrates the brain where it persists indefinitely.

◾Thimerosal (mercury) – Neurotoxin. Induces cellular damage, reduces oxidation-reduction activity, cellular degeneration, and cell death. Linked to neurological disorders, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism.

◾Polysorbate 80 & 20 – Trespasses the Blood-Brain Barrier and carries with it aluminum, thimerosal, and viruses; allowing it to enter the brain.

◾Glutaraldehyde – Toxic chemical used as a disinfectant for heat sensitive medical equipment.

◾Fetal Bovine Serum – Harvested from bovine (cow) fetuses taken from pregnant cows before slaughter.

◾Human Diploid Fibroblast Cells – aborted fetal cells. Foreign DNA has the ability to interact with our own.

◾African Green Monkey Kidney Cells – Can carry the SV-40 cancer-causing virus that has already tainted about 30 million Americans.

◾Acetone – Can cause kidney, liver, and nerve damage.

◾E.Coli – Yes, you read that right.

◾DNA from porcine (pig) Circovirus type-1

◾Human embryonic lung cell cultures (from aborted fetuses)

✳You can view all of these ingredients on the CDCs website. I encourage everyone to do their own research. Look up the MSDS on these chemicals. Read the thousands of peer reviewed studies that have evaluated the biological consequences these chemicals can have on the body, especially when being injected.

✳Fact check vaccine ingredients here:

Perhaps people will better understand the satanism underlying the vaccine industry. May Allah Ta’ala save as from this satanic disaster.

Islam Reigns

By Mujlisul Ulama


Espousing the atheism of the Spanish Jew, Spinoza and of the atheist Einstein, one miserable character who parades himself as a Muslim, in an article over-saturated with kufr of the worst kind, captioned  “Is God a Christian, Jew, Muslim or Hindu?”,  outlining his religion of kufr and nifaaq, states the  cardinal articles of his stercoraceous, humbug ideology to be:

* That Islam is not the sole and absolute repository of Truth and salvation. Such a belief is sectarianism for the lost character who has lost his Imaani bearings just as Iblees had lost his bearings when Allah Ta’ala had commanded the Sajdah for Hadhrat Aadam (Alayhis salaam).

* That Allah is not an Intelligent, Real, Divine Being with Attributes, and Who creates. On the contrary He is an abstract figment or caricature of the created mind of copro-characters such as…

Speaking a White Lie in an Attempt to Reconcile Between People


Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has said: ‘The one who attempts to reconcile between people and speaks good (in order to avert dispute), or conveys good is not a liar.’

Ibn Shihab (rahimahullah) said: “I did not hear that concession/exemption was granted in any lies that the people speak except in three cases: [in] war, reconciling between people, and the dialogue of a husband with his wife, and a wife with her husband [i.e vice versa].

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2605)

Kindly explain this Hadith along with the three permissible lies?


Imam Nawawi (rahimahullah) has mentioned this Hadith to mean that a person who lies or evades the complete truth [i.e speaks contrary to reality] in order to reconcile between others is not looked down upon, rather such actions are commendable.

Qadhi ‘Iyadh (rahimahullah) has mentioned that it is unanimously agreed upon that a person can “lie” in the three aforementioned situations. He has further added that the ‘Ulama have differed with regards to the purport of this “lying”; was it meant to be understood literally or metaphorically?

One group of ‘Ulama consisting of the likes of ‘Allamah Khattabi and others (rahimahumullah) were of the opinion that it could be understood literally. They were of the opinion that it would be permissible for a person to blatantly lie so long as he was solely doing it for a justifiable cause [such as: reconciling between two people, deceiving the enemy in war, etc.].

On the other hand, a group of ‘Ulama containing the likes of ‘Allamahs Tabari, Al-Muhallab, Al-Asili, and others (rahimahumullah) were of the opinion that this “lying” should be understood metaphorically. They were of the opinion that one should generally refrain from lying to the best of his/her ability and if the need ever arose, to tactically present their words in such a way that would save them from literally lying but still construe the meaning, taking care of their needs. This could refer to what some understand today as a white lie, i.e. information one shares that only includes things he wants to say and excludes things that he doesn’t want to say. Therefore, technically while he hasn’t spoken any lies, he also hasn’t told the whole truth. [For example, when at war, instead of taking the name of the enemy’s leader and blatantly lying about killing him, one could merely say, we took care of “your” leader – referring to one of their previously deceased/defeated leaders.]

Nevertheless, both groups were of the opinion that it is permissible [and even encouraged at times] to lie at the time of dire need. An example of this would be when a tyrant or oppressor seeks to murder a man that is seeking refuge in one’s house. In such a case, both groups are of the opinion that it would be permissible [and possibly even encouraged] to blatantly and deliberately lie.

(Ikmalul Mu’lim, Hadith: 2605, Al-Minhaj, Hadith: 6576 – 6578, and Fathul Bari, Hadith: 2692; Also see: Mirqat, Hadith: 4825, and Faydhul Qadir, Hadith: 7581)

Regarding the three scenarios Ibn Shihab Az-Zuhri (rahimahullah) has mentioned, ‘Allamah Munawi (rahimahullah) has further elaborated as follows:

  • War – An example where كذب (lying) could be applied here would be: in displaying a façade of strength, speaking about things that would spur on and encourage one’s comrades, and also in plotting against/tricking the enemy.
  • Reconciling between others – an example where كذب could be applied here would be in conveying good words or statements on behalf of both parties to one another despite not having actually heard such statements or not having been instructed to do so.
  • Between spouses – كذب could be applied here when one does or says things for his/her spouse to keep them happy and maintain a healthy relationship.

Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has added that the ‘Ulama have unanimously agreed that when this concept is applied among spouses, it must never be used to omit a right nor take something unrightfully.

(Fathul Bari, Hadith: 2692, and Faydhul Qadir, Hadith: 7581)

Note: This is merely an explanation regarding the aforementioned text. Kindly refer to a Mufti/Darul Ifta for further queries regarding matters pertaining to the fiqhi understanding and application of this Hadith.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
