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.



(By Maulana Imran Admani of Kenya)

“I am doing Sabr”, the safe haven, incorrectly used by oppressors and cowards.

Undoubtedly, patience holds great rewards. To have patience is no easy feat. However, the word patience is used incorrectly in many situations. We have to understand that patience is not always applicable. Let us understand this with an example.

Wudhu is a good act of ibaadah. It’s rewarding if done with the correct intention. However, if a person sits and does wudhu for hours, it will be unlawful and sinful wasting water and time. Similarly, Nafl Salaah is rewarding. But at the wrong time will be sinful, e.g. at the time of sunrise, zawwaal and sunset. From this we understand that Sabr, if used in the wrong situation, can also go from being a good deed to being wrong and sometimes sinful. But the word “sabr” is so widely accepted as a good action, that people believe it is permissible to be applicable in all situations.

This is the very reason why people are using it to get away with oppression. People in positions of authority are using it to turn a blind eye to all the injustices, corruption and even misguidance and incorrect Islamic teachings that are going on all around us.

This is why we see that people who are using Islam to misguide people, who are informing people of incorrect laws, who are using sinful methods to try and give dawah, who are changing the lessons learnt from Qur’an, when questioned about their methods and are requested to justify their actions according to Shariah, they respond with silence. Instead of trying to explain their haraam concocted methodologies, they resort to playing the victim and cry tears of emotion, blaming their accusers as haters and jealous people. They decide to remain stay silent equating it with sabr. Where will they run from Allah’s judgment and questioning on the day of Qiyamah?

We don’t need to look far to find such people. Look all around us and we will find them. These fake scholars’ methods are openly exposed, and they are being questioned about it by many scholars, yet they remain silent thinking they are adopting sabr in face of hardships. This infectious, cowardly method is perpetrated by even some so-called senior Ulama who advertise themselves as being Shaikhs (experts) in Hadith, Tafseer, etc.

What is even worse, are those people, who are sitting on the side-line, in a position of authority. Despite having the ability to speak up, they are silent. They also claim that they are adopting sabr. In reality it is another name for cowardice. It does not end there. When these preachers are consulted by people who wish to speak out, they push them also towards imaginary sabr. They prevent others from proclaiming the truth.

Let us understand this with an example. If today someone attacked your parents, in your presence, would you sit and watch and say: ‘I shall adopt sabr.’? Or would you try and stop it and maybe even punish those who are attacking your parents?

Then why is it that when these fake preachers and other non-muslim ideologists attack Islam, attack the religion revealed to our beloved nabi Muhammed Sallallahu alahi wasallam, attack that which we hold dear, and yet we are able to sit silently on the side-lines? Even when we have the authority, ability and influence to speak out? How does that make any sense? How can anyone justify adopting sabr at this juncture? How can the love in our hearts for Allah and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam enable us not to speak?

Let us end with the following hadith: 

“Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” (Muslim)

May Allah give us all the ability and courage to do what is correct and may he enable us to adopt sabr only when it is permissible and needed. Ameen

19 Zul Qa’dah 1444 – 9 June 2023


Q. Please explain in some detail the kinds of Talaaq and their effects. What is Raj’i and Baain? What is Khula’? Is Khula’ issued by a Mufti?
1) One or two Talaaq in which the word Talaaq/Divorce or any derivative of it is used, constitute Talaaq Raj’i. This is a revocable Talaaq. The husband is entitled to revoke this Talaaq and take back his wife although the Talaaq will always remain suspended. It is valid within the Iddat period.
If the Raj’at (taking back) is not made during the Iddat, then it will be transformed into Baa-in. The Nikah is then irrevocably terminated. They may reconcile, but a fresh Nikah has to be performed. The woman’s consent is necessary. The new Nikah can be performed only if one or two Talaaq had been issued. Once the third one is issued, then there is no scope for reconciliation.
Three Talaaqs issued in any way whatsoever, immediately terminates the Nikah. The Iddat commences immediately when the third Talaaq is issued.

2) Khula’ is a voluntary agreement between the husband and wife. It cannot be imposed on any of the parties. The effect of Khula’ is Baa-in. After Khula’ reconciliation may take place and a fresh Nikah has to be performed.
Khula’ is between the husband and wife. A Mufti is not required for effecting Khula’. Khula’ is not issued by a Mufti. It is a simple issue. The wife pays the husband a sum of money for gaining her release by means of Talaaq. It is haraam for the husband to demand more than the Mahr amount for the Khula’ process



Question: 1 
My boys in a Darul Uloom were told by the principal: “This is my Madrasah. You have to follow my rules”. Now the same statement was made by the principal to the Asaatizah, “that this madrasah is mine and you have to follow my rules”. We all know that the madrasah is running by the donations of many people from around the world. We understand the students have to follow the rules of the madrasah but to say it’s “my madrasah”, is it correct?

We understand that the Madrasah was started by the Principal. If this is correct, then it is proper to say ‘my madrasah’ regardless of outside donations. The Madrasah does not belong to the donors. People donate to get thawaab in the Aakhirah, not to own or administrate the Madrasah. Therefore it is correct that the Madrasah belongs to the one who had initiated it and who still controls it. He does not mean that he owns the buildings.

Question: 2
In the Darul Uloom we also noticed that at the Salaah times they lock the gates where the students cannot attend Salaah with Jama’ah and all of them are baaligh. Since Shari’ah has given respite until Salaam that if someone was late for some reason he will get the reward of getting his Jama’ah. Is it permissible to do that for some madrasah rules like getting them to be on time for Salaah etc..?

We cannot comment on locking of the gates without having an explanation from the Madrasah as to the reason for this action. However, it is unacceptable for students living in the Madrasah to come late to the Musjid. They should be in the Musjid by the time the Athaan is recited. If students are so lethargic and unconcerned as to come late despite living on the Madrasah grounds, then they deserve to be severely punished or even temporarily suspended to jolt them to understand the notoriety of their late-coming. Missing Takbeer Ula for no valid reason is a major sin. They learn only Qur’aan and Hadith, yet the importance of Salaat has not registered in their minds. If their Islaah is not made at Madrasah, where and when will it be made after they leave the Institution? There are no more genuine khaanqas for tarbiyat purposes.

Question: 3
We were told by the Ulama that to wear a turban is a great Sunnah of our beloved Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. So if it’s Sunnah, can it be given less importance than the topi of a madrasah uniform or of a Khanqah topi?

The turban is Mustahab. Undoubtedly it is Sunnah. One Sunnah should not be compared to another Sunnah. Whoever wishes to don the turban will gain much thawaab. Whoever does not wear turban should not be castigated. Such castigation is transgression of the prescribed limits of the Shariah.


Masturbation in Islam: Compilation of Articles and Fatwas


Bismillah Alhamdulillah was Salaatus Salaam ‘ala RasoolAllah, Sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam

In the past few days for some reason I have recieved an influx of visitors to the website and most people have been, masha’Allah reading the posts on the Fiqh of Fasting (after all it’s Ramadhan). The most popular amongst the posts for some reason (we live in the West) is the one on Masturbation. So acting upon the interests of the visitors to this website I have decided to compile a list of beneficial articles talking about Masturbation, the dangers of this habit and ways one can get rid of this addictive habit, insha’Allah. I know it sounds sick but this need sot addressed, the sooner one gets rid of this habit the better. Our religion is the religion revealed to the Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa Sallam) form none other than our Creator, Allah and…

Health too is an Amaanat – a sacred trust. It is mentioned in the Hadith that if wealth is lost, nothing is lost. Since the dunya and its entire contents according to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) are jeefah (carrion), its loss  is nothing. It is nothing  to be worried  about  because it (wealth)  is nothing. Furthermore, the wealth which is lost in reality was not decreed  to be part of one’s Rizq, hence Allah Ta’ala eliminated  it.

  The Hadith also mentions  that if Health is lost  something is lost, and if Imaan is lost, everything is lost. On the Day of Qiyaamah we shall be questioned about this Amaanat of Health. How  was it expended here on earth? In haraam or in halaal?

  One way of ruining this sacred Trust  of Health is the consumption of carrion, destructive food – food laced  with chemical poisons, and food  acquired with haraam earnings. Grave diseases  such as cancer, heart problems, diabetes and a variety  of other  serious  illnesses in the Muslim community  are now endemic. If Muslims adhere to the health prescriptions of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi  wasallam), they would  not be afflicted  with the deluge  of  sicknesses with which they are currently  saddled.

  The Mashaaikh say: “The stomach is the root of all sickness.” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi  wasallam)  said  that while the Muslim eats  with  “one intestine”, the kuffaar  devour  with  “seven  intestines”. However, today Muslims  have  adopted  from the kuffaar  their practice  of gluttony, hence  the avalanche of health issues with which we are plagued.

The lives of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi  wasallam), the Sahaabah  and the Auliya are a beautiful  pattern of  frugality and austerity. While  it is conceded  that  people  of our kind with deficient  Imaan cannot  adopt in exactitude the extreme  austerity  of the Salafus  Saaliheen, we nevertheless are incumbently bound by the Sunnah  to move in the shadow of our illustrious forbearers and totally  abstain  from  kuffaar gluttony. Even wild  animals  do not indulge in gluttony, kuffaar  style.

Abstention  from gluttony according to the Sunnah is to  fill the stomach one third  with food.   One  third is  to be left  for water  and one third  for  the  free circulation  of air.  However, seeing the extreme  Imaani deficiency of  Muslims  of the later  centuries, the Mashaaikh have expanded on the one third prescription. The Auliya advise that the minimum demand  now is  to stop  eating when there is still desire remaining for eating. Do not fill the stomach to capacity. Leave space for a few more morsels. If even this leniency is ignored, and the ‘seven intestine’ gluttony is resorted to, then be prepared  for the ruin of your health. In later  life  when you are saddled  with  serious  sicknesses, you  will realize, regret and cry, and all the doctors will only compound your misery with their prescription of drugs and poisons.


BEEKEEPING The benefits of honey (and cinnamon)

It is found that a mixture of honey and cinnamon can assist with many diseases, with scientists increasingly accepting honey as a “ram bam” (very effective) medicine for all kinds of ailment. As long ago as 1995 Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, listed a number of ailments that can be assisted by honey and cinnamon, as researched by western scientists.

HEART DISEASE: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply it on bread instead of jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, when they do this process daily, they are assisted in preventing a further attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In the USA and Canada various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins , lose their flexibility and become clogged, and honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients may take daily (morning and night) one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon of honey and half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain and within a month most the of patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

Cholesterol: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of cinnamon powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient reduces the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10% within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information in magazine, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

Colds: Those suffering common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic coughs, colds, and clear the sinuses.

Influenza: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural Ingredient which kills the influenza “germs” and saves the patient from flu.

OLD AGE: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age.

RASPY OR SORE THROAT: When the throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of honey and sip until gone. Repeat every three hours until the throat is without symptoms.

WEIGHT LOSS: Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast and on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER: Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder three times a day for one month .

FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. One medic who has done research says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing the teeth and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.

HEARING LOSS: A dose daily morning and night of honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts, restores hearing.

SORES THAT WON’T HEAL: The antiseptic properties of raw honey, when applied to open sores that won’t heal as a balm, helps the wound to heal.

Earning Livelihood …a simple matter in Islaam

Earning Livelihood  …a simple matter in Islaam

(Advice by a Brother)

When we study the lives of our pious predecessors, we clearly see that they engaged in trade, made effort for their worldly needs and even worked as labourers, yet they never considered this a matter of disgrace or below their dignity.

The second Imam of Qiraat-e-‘Asharah, Imam Ibn  Katheer Al-Makki (rahimahullaah) used to sell perfumes and fragrances which is why he is called “Daari”. Imam Hafs bin Sulaimaan (rahimahullaah), also a great Imam of Qiraat, used to sell clothes. Even great servants of the Quran like Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullaah), Hadhrat ‘Abdullaah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullaah) and Imam Ibnul-Jawzi (rahimahullaah) all used to sell material and textiles.

These dedicated servants of the Quran did not consider trade and business (or any menial work) in order to earn a (halaal) livelihood to be a blemish on their character. How could one think that (any halaal means of livelihood to be disgraceful or below dignity) when they were fully aware of the fact that great Anmbiyaa (‘alayhimus-salaam) used to make effort in things like menial labour, farming etc.

  • Hadhrat Adam (‘alayhis-salaam) was a farmer.
  • Hadhrat Nooh (‘alayhis-salaam) was a carpenter.
  • Hadhrat Idrees (‘alayhis-salaam) was a tailor.
  • Hadhrat Hood (‘alayhis-salaam) and Hadhrat Saalih (‘alayhis-salaam) were businessmen.
  • Hadhrat Ebrahim (‘alayhis-salaam) and Hadhrat Loot (‘alayhis-salaam) also went into farming.
  • Hadhrat Shu’aib (‘alayhis-salaam) used to rear livestock and sell the wool and milk he derived from it.
  • Hadhrat Moosa (‘alayhis-salaam) was a shepherd.
  • Hadhrat Dawood (‘alayhis-salaam) used to manufacture armour (i.e. he was a blacksmith).
  • Hadhrat Sulaymaan (‘alayhis-salaam) used to weave and sell baskets despite the fact that he was a mighty king with a huge kingdom to look after.

Allaah Ta’aalaa clearly says in the Qur-aan Majeed,

“WE  do not seek earning livelihood from you. WE will feed/ provide it to you.”

Then why are we so much caught up in the quandary concerning our Rizq? Allaah  ta’aalaa is the Sole Provider of Rizq. When you are of age relying on Allaah Ta’aalaa just adopt a halaal means or a source for livelihood understandable to you, and move on with your Deen. We need to get this Eemaani/Islaami teaching embedded in our heart and mind that as long as the means or source adopted is halaal then it shouldn’t in the least bit concern us Muslims, to be disgraceful or below our dignity. These are all kuffar concepts of kufr which donot influence a true Mu-min in anyway. Let this also be very much clear to us Muslims that a scientist or a sewer-cleaner, doctor or a cobbler, engineer or a shepherd, businessman or a blacksmith, etc., based on the work ,none has any superiority over another in the sight of Allaah Ta’aalaa except for the one who has more Taqwaa.The only Islaamic requirement for earning a living is that it must be a halaal source that’s all of it.

What the western kuffar have propagated concerning earning livelihood in this age of shaytaani/dajjaali advancement is in diametric conflict with the Aqeedah regarding Rizq in Islaam. . We who regard ourselves to be Muslims have become so much awe-inspired by these western kuffar concepts that we too deem it necessary nay obligatory (Na’oothubillah) that our precious life be  spent in kuffaar schools where the roots of Eemaan are dug up to replace them with atheism, kufrism andshirkism. In college and university brothels where the basic human values/akhlaaq are stripped we are  transformed  into materialistic zombies.  25 to 30 years are  squandered in the pursuit of just being able/qualified to earn a livelihood and the rest of the life in pursuing it day-in and day-out like mad dogs.

The founding fathers of this kufr system were the Englishman Mathew Arnold (d. 1888) & the American, Horace Mann (d. 1859). The six principles of Mann, which now form the foundation of public schools, are worth mentioning.

  1. That a republic cannot long remain ignorant and free, hence the necessity of universal popular education. (it simply means a nation of bonded-slaves whose brains are colonised)
  2. That such education must be paid for, controlled, and sustained by an interested public.
  3. That such education is best provided in schools embracing children of all religious, social, and ethnic backgrounds.
  4. That such education, while profoundly moral in character, must be free of sectarian religious influence. (It must be secular without any religions intervention.)
  5. That such education must be permeated throughout by the spirit, methods, and discipline of a free society, which preclude harsh pedagogy in the classroom.
  6. That such education can be provided only by well-trained, professional teachers.

One of the architects of the current education system, John. D. Rockefeller had said,

“I don’t want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers.”

The writer of an article titled “The Origin of Education & Mandatory Schooling” exposing this global slavery system of education and schooling writes:

“From an early age, we are forced into a mandatory school system that requires and encourages youth to attend for a large portion of their human life, for six hours a day. Each child is required to learn the accepted version of reality in order to fit into the specific mould desired by the elite. Just like television, a large part of school is simply programming.

Essentially, the whole point of school is to shape the reality of the student. We are taken from a very early age and put into the institution, from there we are shown how the world works and what we need to do to survive in it. School literally paints the perception that we need to do well in order to have a job so we can make money and pay our bills. It has nothing to do with the type of growth the human being needs. The concept of grades and marks do not signify any level of intelligence. In school we are shown the idea of an authority figure, how the world works and what intelligence is.”

We accord so much importance to theoretical donkey-degrees and much exaggerated professions, even more than the practical teaching of our Ambiyaa (‘alayhimus-salaam) (Na’oothubillaah). Dancing on the tune of kuffaar, we the so-called Muslims too in this age have engrossed ourselves with only earning, eating, excreting and listfully enjoying life.

  • Is this what is expected from us Muslims.?
  • Are we sent in this temporal deceitful abode called dunyaa for this only.?

No, not at all ! We are here in this dunyaa to learn, practise & propagate our pure and pristine Deen thus being successful in this dunyaa and the Aakhirah by earning the Eternal Pleasure of Allaah Ta’aalaa  so that we be honoured with the highest and greatest reward of Vision of Allaah Ta’aalaa in Jannah.

15 Zul Qa’dah 1444 – 5 June 2023


Persons classified by the Shariah as Khuntha Mushkil (of indeterminate sex) should not be held in contempt. In fact not even a pig may be despised. Great Auliya from the Salafus Saliheen had warned about holding these kinds of persons with contempt. The Shariah has accorded them even rights of Inheritance, and they are allowed to perform Salaat in the Musjid. However, in the current climate in which homosexuals who are males, and lesbians who are females, are being honoured, and their vile acts of satanism legalized, it is unwise to publicize their rights or to make any statement which may convey the idea of sympathizing with them.

The shaitaani class of human specimens dubbed in this era as LGBTQ, come within the purview of the Hadith: “Verily, Allah curses the Mukhannitheen.” The Mukhannitheen refer to the specimens who are classified LGBTQ. On them settles the La’nat and Ghadab of Allah Azza Wa Jal. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had warned them and threatened to exile them if they continued with their immoral misdeeds. They are required to restrain their unnatural lusts with the intelligence bestowed to them and remain within the prescribed limits of the Shariah.

Those molvis who suffer from the malady of kuffaar bootlicking should desist from promoting the mitigating narratives proffered by the western kuffaar of this era to bestow honour to the satanic class called LGBTQ.



Q. Today even some Ulama have adopted a complacent attitude towards gays and homosexuals. They say that these people have been naturally created as they are, hence they should be tolerated. They present some ‘genetic theory’ for accepting the conduct of homosexuals. Please comment in the light of the Shariah.
A. The worst scoundrels who were homosexuals were the people of Nabi Loot (Alayhis salaam). Everyone is aware of the fate which Allah Azza Wa Jal inflicted on these people. From the Athaab which had totally obliterated the nation of homosexuals, we understand that there were no extenuating circumstances to
mitigate the sentence which Allah Ta’ala had inflicted on them.
Today’s kuffaar, deviate modernist ‘muslims’ and even some bootlicking molvis will find justification for the homosexuality of the people of Nabi Loot (Alayhis salaam) with their ‘genetic’ theory. Muslims who present such baboonic theories to justify the worst of sins lose their Imaan. Regardless of any unnatural tendency which the doctors diagnose, the fact remains that Allah Ta’ala has made homosexuality haraam and He has severely punished the homosexuals, and the Shariah prescribes even the death penalty. It is therefore, haraam
and akin to kufr for ulama to bootlick the kuffaar on this issue and to speak the language of the fussaaq and kuffaar doctors who are in reality atheists despite having Muslim names. Even if we assume that the homosexual is naturally inclined to the same sex, then too, it should be remembered that he/she is not mad. His/her intelligence operates correctly. In South Africa there are gay and homosexual male and female judges of the High Court. They are not mad despite their sexual perversion. He/she fully understands his unnatural inclinations. But, instead of restraining the nafs, he / she gives freeexpression to bestial lust. The male homosexual is like the man who commits zina with a woman. This man who inclines naturally to women does not have a licence to fornicate. Similarly the man whose natural inclination is homosexuality does not have a licence to commit the perverted misdeed. Just as the man with a natural desire for females has to restrain his nafs and abstain from zina, so too has the man who inclines to another manhave to abstain from homosexuality. His natural inclination is a trial which he has to control. He is not permitted to give expression to his haraam desire simply because it happens to be his natural inclination. He has to submit to the Shariah.
T h e K h u n t h a (hermaphrodite) is an abnormal person – a person who is physically deformed. He/she has two sets of organs, male and female. The one set may be more developed than the other. Such a person will be classified in accordance with the organ which functions dominantly.
In rare cases both organs are functional, making it impossible to determine the sex. Such a person is classified Khuntha Mushkil. Rasulullah ( S a l l a l l a h u a l a y h I wasallam) had exiled them to the outskirts of Madinah. There are Shar’i ahkaam pertaining to the khuntha mushkil.
Besides the khuntha mushkil, there are only male and female, and no third classification which admits scope for those with homosexual or lesbian inclinations. They have to just restrain their nafs and act within the limits of the Shariah. The genetic argument does not mitigate their crimes of homosexuality.
The aforegoing explanation does not permit that these people be held in contempt. Despising a person even if the person is a kaafir, is not permissible. No one knows what the future holds for himself/herself. It is quite possible that the homosexual will repent and rectify his bond with Allah Ta’ala while the one who had held him (the homosexual) in contempt, may flip and begin plodding the path of Jahannam. There were many such cases. The episode of Hadhrat Abdul Wahhaab Bin Abdul M a j e e d T h a q a f I (Rahmatullah alayh) appearing elsewhere on this page will be a salubrious lesson, Insha-Allah.

Once Hadhrat Abdul Wahhaab Bin Abdul Majeed Thaqafi (Rahmatullah alayh) was passing through a town when he saw a janaazah being carried by three men and a woman. There was no one else accompanying the
janaazah. Hadhrat Abdul Wahhaab went forward, told the woman to step aside. He took her place and they proceeded to the Qabrustaan.
He performed the Janaazah Salaat and assisted with the burial. After the burial, he asked the old lady: “Do you have no neighbours?” She said: “Yes, I do have neighbours, but they refused to participate in the burial because the mayyit, my son, was a mukhannath (hermaphrodite).”
That night Hadhrat Abdul Wahhaab saw in a dream an extremely handsome man adorned with heavenly apparel. He asked the man: “Who are you?” The man replied: “I am the khuntha whom you buried today. I have come to express my gratitude to you for having performed my Janaazah Salaat.” Hadhrat Abdul Wahhaab: “How did you fare?” The man: “Allah Ta’ala forgave me because all the people despised me and held me in


according to the tafseer of surah al-Isra (17) verse 64 where Allah tells iblees to have a share in the wealth and the children of Adam a.s.,:
it is reported in the book “Akamul Marjan” (vol. 1 p.77) from Sayyidina Abdullah bin Abbas r.a. that hermaphroditic people are the children of devil (shaytan). When someone asked him how this was possible, he replied:”Allah has prohibited his Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam, from cohabiting when a woman is menstruating. Therefore, when a person has intercourse with his menstruating wife, the children born of this communion are hermaphrodites”

Those born with both male and female organs are known as khunthaa (hermaphrodites).
They are not homosexuals. According to the Shariah there are three types of khunthaa:
(1) Those born with both male and female organs, but the male sexual organ is functionary, i.e. urination is by the male organ. The Shariah classifies such hermaphrodites as males.
(2) If the khunthaa urinates via the female organ, the person is classified as a female.
(3) If urination is by way of both male and female organs, it will have to be ascertained from which organ the urination occurs first. If by the male organ first, the child will be classified a male and if by the female organ first, it will be a female.

This system of classification will apply to the new-born baby.
When the hermaphrodite attains buloogh (puberty) classification will be determined by physical development of the various organs and inclination. If for example a beard grows or by nature the khunthaa is attracted to females then the person will be classified as a male. If female breasts appear or haidh (menstruation) occurs, the khunthaa will be classified a female. If neither male nor female signs assert themselves and no particular tendency is dominant, the person will be described as khunthaa mushkiel–neither male nor female.
Once the hermaphrodite has been positively classified, the person will be a member of the sex to which he/she has been assigned and all Shar’i rules will apply.
With regard to the tendencies and inclinations of hermaphrodites, there are two kinds. The one type of hermaphrodite imitates the opposite sex by deliberate design. Such hermaphrodites have been cursed by Rasulullah(sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Their expulsion was ordered by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Women have to adopt Purdah for them. Such accursed persons should not be permitted to appear in the presence of females according to the Shariah.
The second type of hermaphrodite has certain inclinations and tendencies by nature. They do not consciously simulate a particular sex. This class is ma’zoor (excused) and not liable for punishment. Hermaphrodites, while having the deformity of two sets of sexual organs do not normally suffer deformity of the mind. They are not insane. Once the hermaphrodite has been positively classified, he or she will have to abide by the restrictions and rules applicable to his/her sex. If the khunthaa has been classified as a male and he indulges in sexual relations with a man, he will be guilty of the sin of homosexuality.
A child born with only male organs will be a male even if female inclinations develop in him at a later stage. Such a person, i.e. with only male organs, is neither a hermaphrodite nor a homosexual. Yes, if he commits homosexuality, he will be known as a homosexual liable for the punishment which an Islamic court will prescribe. But, he is a male and according to the Shariah he is obliged to control his emotions even if abnormal and unnatural. He has to make mujaahadah (strive) against the nafs just as a man who desires to commit fornication has to strive against his nafs. A man under severe nafsaani temptation to fornicate cannot argue extenuating circumstances for his sin. The Shariah will not accept his arguments. Similarly, the one who commits homosexuality has no valid reason to vindicate himself for indulgence in unnatural acts of abomination.

It is not the Aql (intelligence) which produces the desire to commit evil, be the evil natural such as sexual relations with the opposite sex, or unnatural such as sexual relations with members of the same sex. The carnal nafs in the human being impelled on by shaitaan induces the person to perpetrate immorality of all kinds. Every person is therefore commanded by Islam to resort to mujaahadah (striving) against his carnal desires and evil promptings.
If the hermaphrodite has been classified as a member of a particular sex, it will be permissible for that person to resort to medical aid to eliminate the other unwanted sexual organ, etc.
If the person is a khunthaa mushkiel (neither male or female) medical aid may be resorted to with a view to bringing about the assertion of the functions of one set of organs so that the person may be classified. When a khunthaa mushkiel dies, ghusl will not be given to the body. Yes, Tayammum will be made for it.
