hadith can’t be used to justify oppression

THE QUACKERY AND GUILE OF THOSE USING MUBARAK AHAADITH TO SUBSTANTIATE THE RUBBISH OF ‘SOCIAL DISTANCING’ AND CONTAINMENT IN THE HOMES

THE MUBARAK AHAADITH CANNOT BE USED TO ‘JUSTIFY’ OPPRESSION (1)

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.

                                                       THE MINI-DAJJAALS

“SITTING IN YOUR HOME DURING AN EPIDEMIC – YOU GET THE REWARD OF A
MARTYR
Prophetic guidance during epidemic Disease: Social Distancing, Quarantine,
Containment.”

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
صابرا
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
martyr.”
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
discussion.
Let us study what exactly appears in Fat-hul Baari, with regard to these specific
Ahaadith:
“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
193]
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
therein.
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
perspective.
May Allah Ta`ala have mercy on this Ummah!

CONTAMINATED FOOD

  1. CONTAMINATED FOOD
  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.

متعدی امراض اور اسلام
س… کیا جذام والے سے اسلام نے رشتہ ختم کردیا ہے؟ اگر نہیں تو اس کے مریض سے جینے کا حق کیوں چھینا جاتا ہے؟ اور یہ کیوں کہا جاتا ہے کہ: “اس سے شیر کی طرح بھاگو اور اس کو لمبے بانس سے کھانا دو”؟
ج… جو شخص ایسی بیماری میں مبتلا ہو جس سے لوگوں کو اذیت ہوتی ہو، اگر لوگوں کو اس سے الگ رہنے کا مشورہ دیا جائے تو یہ تقاضائے عقل ہے، باقی بیماری کی وجہ سے اس کا رشتہ اسلام سے ختم نہیں ہوگا، اس بیماری پر اس کو اجر ملے گا۔ اسلام تو مرض کے متعدی ہونے کا قائل نہیں، لیکن اگر جذامی سے اختلاط کے بعد خدانخواستہ کسی کو یہ مرض لاحق ہوگیا تو ضعیف الاعتقاد لوگوں کا عقیدہ بگڑے گا اور وہ یہی سمجھیں گے کہ یہ مرض اس کو جذامی سے لگا ہے، اس فسادِ عقیدہ سے بچانے کے لئے لوگوں سے کہا گیا ہے کہ: اس سے شیر کی طرح بھاگو (لمبے بانس سے کھانا دینے کا مسئلہ مجھے معلوم نہیں، نہ کہیں یہ پڑھا ہے)۔ الغرض جذام والے کی تحقیر مقصود نہیں بلکہ لوگوں کو ایذائے جسمانی اور خرابیٴ عقیدہ سے بچانا مقصود ہے۔ اگر کوئی شخص قوی الایمان اور قوی المزاج ہو وہ اگر جذامی کے ساتھ کھاپی لے تب بھی کوئی گناہ نہیں، چنانچہ آنحضرت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے جذامی کے ساتھ ایک برتن میں کھانا کھایا ہے۔

Q: Has Islam ended its relationship with the leper? If not, why is his patient deprived of his right to live? And why is it said: “Run away from him like a lion and feed him with long bamboo”?
A: A person who suffers from a disease which afflicts people. If people are advised to stay away from it, then it is a requirement of common sense. The rest of the disease will not end his relationship with Islam. But he will be rewarded. Islam does not believe that the disease is contagious, but if, after mixing it with leprosy, God willing, someone gets the disease, then the belief of the weak believers will deteriorate and they will think that the disease is infected with leprosy, this disorder of belief. People have been told to run away from it like a lion (I don’t know the problem of feeding with long bamboo, I haven’t read it anywhere). The purpose is not to humiliate the leper, but to save people from physical harm and bad faith. If a person has strong faith and strong temperament, even if he eats with leprosy, there is no sin on him.

UNNATURAL DELAYING OF HAIDH

Is fatwa below on fatwa website correct? My wife wanted to know.

DELAYING MENSTRUATION BY INJECTION
Is it permissible for a Woman to have an injection for the purpose of delaying menstruation to enable her go through ibadah like Hajj or Umrah?

Answer
In principle, a woman should not tamper with and alter the natural state of her body as created by Allāh Ta’ala. Generally, a woman would know her monthly cycle and may then make use of calculations to determine a suitable date to perform Umrah.
The use of such injections would, however, be permitted under unavoidable circumstances such as in the case of Hajj wherein a woman would be unable to perform the obligatory Tawāf (al-Ziyārah) before her departure date from Makkah.
This is also provided that it is done under the medical guidance of one’s doctor and is not proven harmful to the body.
Answer
The fatwa is moronic. In the first place it does not answer the question. The question is about permissibility of perpetrating the satanic unnatural act of taking medication to prevent haidh for the purpose of going to perform Hajj and even Nafl Umrah.
The questioner does not ask about specifically Tawaaf Ziyaarat. Since this mufti is in bewilderment and off the track in shoving his own implied question into the Istifta’, he relates the question to Tawaaf Ziyaarat to produce his idea of “unavoidable circumstances”.
He says that the satanism is permissible “under unavoidable circumstances”. What is so “unavoidable” about not going for Hajj and Umrah? Today, even Fardh Hajj should be delayed due to the vaccination and other acts of shaitaaniyat.
Then the mufti speaks more drivel by saying: “This is also provided that it is done under the medical guidance of one’s doctor and is not proven harmful to the body.”
Shaitaan has really convoluted the brains and thinking of the muftis of today. Firstly 99.9% of doctors today are faasiq and even atheists. Their advice is satanic rubbish. The logical conclusion of this drivel is that if the satanic medication is harmful for the body then it will not be permissible. If so, then what happens to her Tawaaf-e-Ziyaarat? In the understanding of this mufti chap, omitting Tawaaf-e-Ziyaarat should qualify the woman for the satanic medication because it does constitute “unavoidable circumstances”, regardless of what her doctor says and regardless of it being harmful to her body. This mufti should answer this question. It is not for us at this juncture to present the answer. We merely point out the contradiction and drivel of his fatwa.
Let it be known and understood well that whatever method / medication is adopted to interfere with the natural process created by Allah Ta’ala is always harmful. It is by the intervention of Iblees. What the fussaaq-atheists doctors say is trash to be compulsorily discarded.
It is haraam for a woman to go for Hajj and even worse for Umrah if she has to resort to haraam

The first domino has fallen

Dear Reader,

The first domino has fallen…

Boris Johnson had the courage – or more like the desire for self-preservation – to announce yesterday that all COVID-19 restrictions in the U.K. will end on January 26.

That means everything.

Masks will no longer be required anywhere. Not in shops, not on public transport, not in schools, not outside. Better yet, the removal of masks in schools is effective today.

Even better, Johnson went so far as to make it clear that “we will trust the judgement of the British people and no longer criminalise anyone who chooses not to wear one.”

Working remotely will no longer be advised and people are encouraged to return to work in person.

And COVID passports or passes to prove vaccination status will no longer be required anywhere.

What happened? Why the sudden reversal of policy in one of the countries that supported some of the most draconian pandemic policies?

On December 30, prestigious medical journal The Lancet published the results of a study that demonstrated that 89% of new U.K. COVID cases were among those fully vaccinated. 89%!

It went one step further to highlight the vaccinated population as a source of transmission of COVID-19.

The research went even further, and I quote:

“The COVID-19 case rate per 100,000 was higher among the subgroup of the vaccinated compared to the subgroup of the unvaccinated.”

“Fourteen fully vaccinated patients became severely ill or died, the two unvaccinated patients developed mild disease.”

“It appears to be grossly negligent to ignore the vaccinated population as a possible and relevant source of transmission when deciding about public health control measures.”

And that is what happened.

The data was irrefutable. No matter what the U.K. tried over the last two years, absolutely nothing stopped the spread. Remote work didn’t work, sanitizing our hands didn’t work, masking didn’t work, vaccine passports didn’t work, and most certainly the COVID-19 “vaccines” didn’t stop the spread.

Sadly, we knew this already. I’ve been sharing the scientific research with my readers for the last two years. I haven’t been sharing my opinions on these matters, only the research, the data, and the facts.

It might be uncomfortable for some to hear, but it’s the kind of information that I’d like to have to make decisions about my own health if our roles were reversed.

I’m sure that Boris Johnson and his cabinet will claim victory. It’s all for show, of course; to continue down the path of more restrictions and criminalization would have been political suicide.

It’s a smart move for self-preservation. But he really had no choice. In light of all the research and evidence, so many across the country realized the game was up. The truth is, for a highly transmissible airborne virus, we can run… but we can’t hide.

And almost as if in coordination, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the U.S. released new research that demonstrated that people who had previously been infected with COVID-19 and recovered were better protected against the Delta variant than those who are vaccinated alone.

This was a big deal, as this is an explicit acknowledgement of the power and durability of natural immunity acquired from prior exposure to COVID-19.

But it gets better.

In a shocking admission from the epicenter of COVID fearmongering, The New York Timesstated yesterday, “Unvaccinated people with a history of COVID also had lower rates of infection and hospitalization than those protected by vaccines alone.” It went further, saying, “The data are consistent with trends observed in international studies.”

The facts are not surprising. The fact that The New York Times printed them is…

The most ironic part is that we’ve always known these things. We’ve known that the COVID-19 vaccines don’t “immunize” or provide immunity. They are not at all a vaccine in the traditional sense. I think of them more like experimental drugs for which we are still waiting on two-year safety data.

We’ve known that those vaccinated still catch and transmit COVID-19 to others. It’s the spread of Omicron that has made this fact so obvious. We’ve experienced it in our own lives and networks of friends, family, and colleagues.

This is the reason that vaccine passports make no sense at all. What’s the point? They provide a false sense of security and do absolutely nothing to keep anyone “safe.” Those who are vaccinated transmit COVID-19 like anyone else.

So there we have it… the beginning of the end.

The U.K. now joins Sweden, which was the stalwart of logic in successfully employing evidence-based policy decisions based on scientific research, not political narratives. Sweden has proven to be an incredible model throughout the pandemic. Thankfully, at least one country got it right. I hope other countries will learn from it.

Who will throw the towel in next? I suspect several European countries will do the same. I have to believe that there has been some coordination amongst E.U. member countries on this new policy position.

There have been so many massive and peaceful demonstrations against the COVID restrictions across Europe over the last six months, most of which went grossly underreported by the media. The groundswell was unmistakable and deeply encouraging.

And the U.S. is about to fall as well. For the same reasons as Johnson in the U.K. We’re all exhausted with this nonsense, and we can all see that the interventions haven’t stopped the spread.

And we look to states like Florida and Texas that have been living a normal life for more than a year. None of the dire predictions levied by The New York Times or The Atlantic came true. And we all know it.

It’s time to get back to life… to breathe freely… to let our children and grandchildren see each other’s faces and smile. It’s time to treat each other with kindness and respect.

It’s time to be free.

FATWA ON MUSJID CLOSURE AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IN SALAAH

FATWA ON MUSJID CLOSURE AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IN SALAAH

Question:
Assalaaamualaikum.
Mufti Makada Saheb,
There is much confusion amongst people of knowledge regarding the term difference of opinion.Many Students and Scholars alike latch on to the term when it comes to social distance in Salah and closure of Masaajid .
To clarify this dilemma:

  1. Is social distance in Salah and musjid closure a valid difference of opinion?
  2. What are the limits of and what type of valid difference of opinions ought to be respected?

ANSWER

Haamidan wa Musalliyan

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh

A valid difference of opinion (ikhtilaaf) takes place in the case where the differences come within the scope of the textual proofs of the Quraan and the Hadith. These types of differences will be similar to the differences between the four mazhabs who establish their mazhabs from the textual proofs of the Quraan and Hadith. However, if a difference goes against the textual proofs of the Quraan and Hadith, then this is not regarded as a valid difference of opinion (ikhtilaaf) that can be accommodated in Deen. Rather, it is regarded as a violation of Deen (khilaaf).

In regard to the issue of social distancing, then practising this in salaah is impermissible as it opposes the clear and categorical texts of the Hadith. Hence, one will accept the opinion of those people whose view conforms to the command of the Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). One will not accept the opinion of those people whose view opposes the command of the Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

When we view the Ahaadith, then we see that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was greatly displeased with the Ummah not joining the saffs and mentioned that this method of performing salaah is the means of one being cut off from the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, as well as disunity being created in the hearts.

Below are a few Ahaadith that will shed light on the displeasure of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) for the Ummah performing salaah in this manner.

  1. Being Cut Off from the Mercy of Allah Ta‘ala

In one Hadith, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who joins the saff (i.e. he does not leave gaps in the saff), Allah will join him (to His special mercy), and the one who cuts the saff (i.e. by leaving gaps), Allah Ta‘ala will cut him off (from His mercy).” (Mustadrak #774).

  1. Creating Disunity in the Hearts

On one occasion, before Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) commenced the salaah, he turned his mubaarak face towards the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and said thrice, “Straighten your saffs.” Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “By Allah! You will certainly straighten your saffs, or Allah will most definitely create disunity in your hearts!” (Sunan Abi Dawood #662) On hearing this, the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) immediately ensured that there were no gaps between them.

  1. Shaitaan Entering between the Gaps

Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Join your saffs (i.e. stand joined to one another, with no gaps in between), and keep your saffs close to one another, and ensure that your necks are in line with one another, for I take an oath by that Being in whose control lies my life – I certainly see Shaitaan entering through the gaps in the saff like a small goat.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #776)

From the above mentioned Ahaadith, we understand that through carrying out the salaah in accordance to the sunnah, the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala will be acquired, unity will be created in the hearts of the believers, and they will be saved from the evil effects of Shaitaan.

The Fuqahaa have clearly mentioned that performing salaah with gaps between the musallis is makrooh-e-tahreemi (impermissible) and one will be sinful through performing salaah in this manner. Imagine that salaah is the greatest ibaadat of Deen, and it is a means of acquiring the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, yet through opposing the sunnah, one receives sin through the salaah instead of reward!

For further details, you may refer to the attached kitaab we have prepared on this topic.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

The Abnormal Movement

Islam Reigns

By Hadhrat Moulana Abdul Hamid Is’haq Sahib (DB)

RasulullahSallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallamsaid:

Verily, what I fear most for my nation is the deed of the people of Lut.”[Sunan Ibn Majah]

Presently, in the world, there is a great effort to make the abnormal, normal. The agenda is to normalise everything Haraam (prohibited) … and to make people worse than animals.

On all platforms, the ‘Pride’ movement is being promoted, on a mass scale. The ‘pride’ flag and rainbow colours, with its evil, shameless message will be found almost everywhere, for one and all to become familiarized with it – including our innocent, little children. …Children’s toys, clothing, books and their schooling education are deliberately designed and planned to create an acceptance and connection to the Pride movement, with all its evils.The agents of this movement prey on humanity, including children.

Never heard of incentives, discounts, vaccination incentives.

After all the vaccines I have listed above, I have never seen a vaccine like this one that discriminates, divides and judges society for what it is.

And as the social fabric stretches… This is a powerful vaccine! She does all these things except IMMUNIZATION. If we still need a booster dose after we are fully vaccinated and we still need to test negative after we are fully vaccinated and we still need to wear a mask after we are fully vaccinated and continue to be hospitalized after a full vaccination, most likely, the only conclusion is:

“It is time for us to admit that we have been completely deceived.

DEMOLITION OF A MUSJID

PAKISTAN – DEMOLITION OF A MUSJID ORDERED BY THE COURT

Question: The supreme court of Pakistan has ordered the demolition of a Musjid (Madina Musjid) in Karachi on the basis of urban zoning regulations having been violated. Is the order of the court valid according to the Shariah? Pakistan is supposed to be an Islamic Republic as is stated in its Constitution.

ANSWER

Understand well, that Pakistan, more appropriately, Napakistan (The Impure Land) is not an Islamic country. The claim of it being an ‘Islamic’ republic is dastardly false. From its very inception in 1947, contrary to the much-vaunted proclamation of the establishment of a Shariah-Sunnah state by the munaafiq politicians who were all agents of Iblees, Pakistan NEVER was an Islamic state, nor was there any sincere attempt by its founders to establish a Shariah state.

However, they succeeded to befuddle even our very senior Ulama with their deception, and to ensnare their support for the establishment of a separate state to fulfil the demand of the conspiracy of their colonial master, Britain. Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Shafi (Rahmatullah alayh) laments the pipe dream which he too had entertained. But, alas! His cry and lament were expressions of futility. Hadhrat Shafi makes mention of this Pakistani pipe dream in the introduction of his Ma-aariful Qur’aan. However, Mufti Taqi has very conveniently deleted it from the English translation for a very obvious reason: he is in cahoots with the kufr government of Pakistan.

The regime in Pakistan or Napakistan has abolished the entire Shariah, but persists with the deception of the nom deplume of ‘Islamic Republic’ for the consumption of ignoramuses. The courts in Napakistan are KUFR courts which operate strictly in accord with western law. It is therefore no surprise that the murtad judge decreed the demolition of the Musjid.

Right here in South Africa, some molvis, notably of the NNB jamiat and of the Pork Certifier MJC, had not so long ago, petitioned the kuffaar court to ‘demolish’ not one Musjid, but all the Musaajid throughout the country. These rotten molvis with kufr percolating from every aperture and pour of their bodies, begged and pleaded with the kuffaar court to close all the Musajid in the country. They furthermore had the shaitaani audacity and kufr temerity of branding all the Musaajid to be ‘super spreaders’ of disease.

Relevant to the judge of the Pakistani supreme court, these South African shayaateen posing as molvis and sheikhs are worse. While the judge in Pakistan ordered the demolition of one Musjid, the filthy khanaazeer molvis and sheikhs in South Africa pleaded with the kuffaar court to demolish a thousand Musaajid – all Musaajid and all Jamaat Khanahs of the country.

We are living in an era in close proximity of Qiyaamah. More heart-breaking events are yet to transpire.

DEVOURING HARAAM AND MUSHTABAH FOOD

THE PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL RUIN OF DEVOURING HARAAM AND MUSHTABAH FOOD

Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed: “O Rusul (Messengers)! Eat from what is Tayyibaat and practice Saalihaat (righteous deeds).”

Hadhrat Hasan Basri (Rahmatullah alayh), perhaps the most senior Faqeeh, Muhaddith, Mufassir and Wali among the Taabieen, said: “A man may fast every day, spend every night in ibaadat and become as thin as a rake, but as long as he is not careful regarding what he eats, nothing of his ibaadat is accepted.”

Hadhrat Hasan Basri (Rahmatullah alayh) also said: “I have met such people (Sahaabah and senior Taabieen) who had abandoned 70 avenues of halaal for fear of falling into haraam.”

Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri (Rahmatullah alayh) said that there was a time when with each Aayat of the Qur’aan he recited, seventy facts of Hikmat (Divine Wisdom) would be revealed to him. But “now, even if I recite the entire Qur’aan, not a single avenue of wisdom opens up for me.” This spiritual blockage he attributed to a cup of water given to him by a soldier. Generally, soldiers are juhala and cruel. The jahl and zulm of the soldier had a great detrimental athr (effect) on the water, hence the Roohaaniyat of Hadhrat Sufyaan was polluted with the water resulting in the blockage.

The effect of mushtabah and haraam food is disastrous for a Mu’min. It destroys all spiritual stamina. The ability to combat evil is weakened and even eliminated. The basis of Taqwa is halaal and tayyib food. A lady entrusted her young son into the care of a Shaikh. The Shaikh observed that the boy was progressing swiftly in the sphere of Taqwa. The Shaikh feared that the swift rate of spiritual progress of the lad would overwhelm and even kill him. He therefore devised a method for slowing down the child’s rate of Roohaani progress. The Shaikh bought some food from a halaal restaurant. There was no doubt whatsoever in the food being halaal. It was not Mushtabah (doubtful) food.

After the boy consumed this food, his rate of progress significantly fell. This was the effect of the restaurant food. Despite it being halaal, it was not Tayyib (pure and wholesome). It lacked the ingredients for enhancing spiritualism for the acquisition of Taqwa. Why was the restaurant food not Tayyib despite being Halaal? Fussaaq and fujjaar generally handle food prepared in public places. Their spiritual evil and their dirty hands, etc. contaminate the food, eliminating the property of tayyib.

On this issue, Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) explained that food displayed openly in market places is adversely affected by the stares and glances of people, especially by the stares of the poor who cannot afford purchasing the expensive food. This has a detrimental effect on the spirituality of consumers. An evil stare or a bad stare or a stare of sorrow can exercise a detrimental spiritual effect on one’s Roohaaniyat (spiritual fibre).

Once when Hadhrat Zunnun Misri (Rahmatullah alayh) was imprisoned for his outspoken Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar (Commanding virtue and prohibiting vice), an old Waliah (Saintly lady) sent some food for him. The warder of the prison brought the food with the message: ‘Hadhrat be assured that I have prepared this food from absolutely halaal money which I have earned weaving cloth. Therefore do not hesitate to consume it.”

Returning the food, Hadhrat Zunnun (Rahmatullah alayh) who was among the most senior and greatest Auliya of Islam, responding to her message, said: “I know that the food is absolutely halaal. However, the container is mushtabah (doubtful), hence I am constrained to return the food.” The ‘container’ referred to the hands of the warder who was a zaalim (oppressor). The effect of his zulm was contagious and was transferred to the food.

This is the lofty concept Halaal-Tayyib food. Hadhrat Allaamah Abdul Wahhaab Sha’raani (Rahmatullah alay) said: “The sign of mushtabah food, is a large variety of food served.” One of the principles for the cultivation of Taqwa is reduction in food and consuming simple food. While this is the emphasis of the Sunnah, the emphasis of scoundrels such as these carrion certifying outfits is the diametric opposite. Just look at SANHA’s newsletters! How these rubbish magazines extol gluttony! Gluttony is regarded a virtue to be cultivated. Since the pursuit of these filthy entities is haraam boodle, they advertise the haraam and mushtabah products of the kuffaar, extolling their ‘fadhaail’ (virtues). They encourage the ignorant masses to become like dogs to devour more and more kuffaar products whereas the Sunnah emphasises the opposite.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “The kaafir eats with seven intestines while the Mu’min eats with one intestine”. While the Sunnah extols frugality and little food consumption, SANHA, MJC and the rest of the devil’s carrion certifying cartel encourage Muslims to become gluttons. SANHA’s newsletters specialize in the promotion of gluttony, and that too by consumption of mushtabah and haraam.

Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu) said: “Do not consume the food of anyone besides the food of the Muttaqeen (people of taqwa). But SANHA, in its insane pursuit of money, uses the Deen to promote the food of the kuffaar, and that too, meat products – carrion passed off as ‘halaal’.

Discouraging his son from much food, Hadhrat Luqmaan (Alayhis salaam) said: “O my son! Stay away from functions of feasting for these functions entice you to the dunya.”

The virtues of frugality and abstemiousness in the matter of food are numerous. The benefits of food reduction, especially total abstention from SANHA-promoted gluttony, are both physical and spiritual. The Sunnah’s ta’leem pertaining to food frugality is in diametric opposition to the satanic propagation of SANHA who extols gluttony and total abandonment of all inhibition for mushtabah and haraam. Every person with a little brains understand the monetary objectives of these carrion certifying khanaazeer, hence SANHA’s promotion of gluttony should be readily comprehensible.

While the Sunnah and the practice of the Sahaabah and Auliya emphasize extreme caution regarding the intake of even halaal food, SANHA goes to great strides to promote meat and chickens sold by kuffaar. Ponder! When the stares of people exercise a detrimental spiritual athr (effect) on even halaal food, then what does the intelligence and Imaan of a Mu’min dictate regarding meat products sold by kuffaar – by atheists – by enemies of Islam and enemies of the Ummah? How can Muslims indulge in such spiritual self-immolation to ruin their Imaan by ingesting meat products acquired from kuffaar?

The masses of Muslims have degenerated to the level of vultures. We say vultures, not dogs, because the ebb of Muslim degeneration is sub-canine. Dogs too shun carrion. Dogs do not consume rotten meat. Yes, vultures do. According to the Shariah, haraam meat is ‘rotten’ – carrion – jeefah. Jeefah – Consumption is the science in which SANHA and its cohorts in the carrion certifying game excel. Over the decades, the accursed ‘halaal’ certifying satanic ulama-e-soo’ outfits have totally desensitized the Imaan of the ignorant masses. The Muslim masses no longer have any inhibition regarding mushtabah and haraam food. Totally insensitive to the spiritual disasters of haraam food, Muslims have lost their Imaani abhorrence for taking meat and even prepared non-meat food from the hands of kuffaar. This evil is abundantly displayed in their gluttonous indulgence on the plane. Every morsel of the plane-food served by the impure hands of impure fussaaq, fujjaar and kuffaar incrementally tarnishes their Imaan. In fact, in many of these devourers of carrion, there is no longer any Imaan despite the outward profession of Islam.

While SANHA encourages gluttony with its halaal certified carrion and other kuffaar-prepared foods, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“The worse container filled by a person is the stomach. A few morsels suffice for the Son of Aadam (i.e. for a Muslim human being)…..”

Obviously the gluttonous ones resemble the kuffaar who need to fill seven intestines. Filling seven intestines as do the kuffaar, is promoted by SANHA. View its satanic newsletters and you will see the conspicuous adverts goading Muslims to fill seven intestines kuffaar-like. The practice of filling ‘seven intestines’ promoted by SANHA, will have a lamentable sequel even in the Aakhirat.

Once when Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) saw a Sahaabi burping due to having ingested much food, he (Nabi – Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“O Aba Juhaifah! Restrain yourself (when eating). Verily, those who are the most filled (by means of gluttonous consumption of food) here on earth, their hunger will be the longest on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

After this stricture, Hadhrat Abu Juhaifah (Radhiyallahu anhu) never again ate much. If he ate in the morning, he would not eat in the evening, and vice versa. The Mashaaikh say that a person who eats thrice daily is an animal. The style of the ignorant masses is twice daily, which is tolerable provided that there is no SANHA-type gluttonous indulgence, and absolutely no carrion.

The preponderance of diseases of a variety of incurable kinds in the community of this era is the direct consequence of filling and over-filling the stomach-container with mushtabah, haraam, junk ‘food’, and rotten CARRION certified by SANHA and the like. The Mashaaikh have said: “The stomach is the headquarters of disease.” And, it is DISEASE which SANHA, MJC and the other scoundrel halaal certifiers are promoting.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that the food of two suffices for four, and the food of four is sufficient for eight persons. This is another virtue of frugality which SANHA with its adverts promoting kuffaar products denies and negates. Hadhrat Aishah (Radhiyallahu anha) says that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) never ate twice in one day until the day he passed way.

The very first hurdle which Muslims of today have to clear and surmount is to abandon their addiction of haraam food – haraam products certified by SANHA, MJC, NIHT and the other khanaazeer. The Road to Allah Ta’ala will remain perpetually blurred and unrecognizable as long as the intellect is deranged with the filth and carrion with which people are nourishing themselves. Haraam food disturbs mental equilibrium and blocks the avenue for the acquisition of Taqwa. That is why Allah Ta’ala emphasized so much to His Ambiya (Alayhimus salaam):

“O Rusul! Eat from the Tayyibaat and practice Saalihaat.”
