Question: A student mufti in an article comments as follows on the Ahaadith which appear in Hidaayah:

“In brief, there is no doubt that al-Hidaya contains narrations that are extremely weak and often untraceable. It was for this reason that scholars such as ‘Allamah al-Zayla’i penned books in locating, grading and consolidating those reports, like Nasb al-Raya. Furthermore, ‘Allamah Zayla’i, in many instances was compelled to throw the towel in as well, confessing his inability to locate some of those narrations. Thereafter, when Hafiz lbn Hajar wrote his abridgment of Nasb al-Raya, al-Dirayah, he located many reports that ‘Allamah Zayla’i failed to, but he as well was unsuccessful in numerous places. Shortly after, ‘Allamah Qasim ibn Qutlubugha wrote a book entitled, Munya al-Alma’, as a completion in locating further reports, and amazingly he found approximately forty such reports. Very important to note that ‘Allamah Qasim mentions that many people claim that Ali al-Marghinaani (Sahib al-Hidaya) mentioned reports that are not found, however many of these reports are found in the works of the early Mujathids, like lmam Muhammad in his al-Asl, with Asaaneed.

In the al-Jawahir wa al-Durar of ‘Allamah al-Sakhawi there is one place where Hafiz lbn Hajar was asked regarding such books of fiqh which contain reports that we cannot find nowadays or very weak narrations, so he replied that there are three possibilities: 1. it is authentic according to him 2. The books containing those narration were destroyed during the Tatar invasion. l can’t remember the third answer he wrote, but you get the point. Finally, you should read al-Ajwiba al-Fadila of ‘Abd al-Hayy al-Laknawi he addresses a similar issue.”


The character who wrote the rubbish regarding Hidaayah is a moron. In Islamic parlance such morons who pose as ‘muftis’ are termed ‘mufti maajin’. Shaami dubs deviates and morons of this ilk, Haatibul Lail (gatherer of wood in the darkness of the night). Without the slightest hesitation we can safely contend that shaitaan has colonized the brains of this moron who dared to write his khuraafaat against the illustrious Mujtahid, Saahib-e-Hidaayah. Before having embarked on his exercise of satanism, he should have supplicated for thorns to grow on his tongue. That would have been infinitely superior than the shaitaani drivel which he has uttered.

Allaamah Zayla-ee (rahmatullah alayh) is a peanut in comparison with Saahib-e-Hidaayah. His kitaab, Nasbur Raya, has no pedestal in relation to Hidaayah.

Be assured that every Hadith which Saahib-e-Hiddayah cites as the Mustadal for any mas’alah, is a confirmed Saheeh Hadith. The illustrious Fuqaha are not subservient to the Hadith classification science of the Muhadditheen. The Fuqaha were Muhadditheen in their own right, and the Muhadditheen were subservient to them in practical implementation of the ahkaam of the Shariah. It was not the other way around.

Moron ‘muftis’ are agents of Iblees. Shaitaan has harnessed them into his nefarious plot to dismantle the Deen with the aid of juhala who have suddenly become ‘muftis’. These jaahil ‘muftis’ suffering from the hallucination of being mujtahids lack the ability of even reciting correctly the texts of the kutub. They halaalize alcohol, carrion and riba with hollow and deceptive arguments by means of which they dupe the Toms, Dicks, Harrys, Jills, Janets, and Janes. They are the wolves leading the ignorant masses to Jahannam with their corrupt ‘academic’ expertise.

Allaamah Zayla-ee’s “throwing in of the towel” is a clear admission of his knock-out defeat, and lying ignominously sprawled at the illustrious and mubaarak feet of Saahib-e-Hidaayah. If Allaamah Zayla-ee had to be reborn, he would not reach the mubaarak toes of Saahib-e-Hidaayah. His inability to locate the sources of the Ahaadith which constitute the Mustadallaat of Hidaayah, speaks volumes for his mediocrity in the stupendous field of Ilm in which Saahib-e-Hidaayah excelled and operated.

This miserable mufti maajin is too darn stupid to understand that the appearance of a Hadith in Hidaayah is by itself the highest degree of authenticity. The fact that a Hadith found its way into Hidaayah, is clear testification for its authenticity. But stultified brains are incapable of comprehending this simple fact stated by the illustrious Fuqaha. He lacks understanding of the concept of Talaqqi bil Qubool. This fellow should concentrate on gaining better expertise in the masaa-il pertaining to the rudimentary acts of Istinja.

He has not yet set foot in the kindergarten of Ilm at the higher level, yet his jahl constrains him to wag his insolent and najis tongue against a Waarith-e-Nabi of the lofty status of Saahib-e-Hidaayah.

The inability of Ibn Hajar to locate the sources of the Ahaadith casts no aspersion on the integrity of Saahib-e-Hidaayah nor detracts from the authenticity of the Ahaadith of Hidaayah. On the contrary, it illustrates the deficiency if the research of Ibn Hajar (rahmatullah alayh). It is a monstrous stupidity to fault a Hadith on the basis of one’s deficient research or inability to locate specific information. If an authority says that “I did not or I cannot locate it”, it does no flow from this confession of ‘throwing in the towel’ that the Ahaadith cited by Saahib-e-Hidaayah are Daheef or Maudhoo’. If Zayla-ee and Ibn Hajar did not succeed in discovering the sources of the Ahaadith which Saahib-e-Hidaayah had ascertained and confirmed centuries prior to their appearance, it will then be only a moron who will contend that th Ahaadith in Hidaayah are ‘weak’ or ‘fabricated’.

Both possibibilities postulated by Allaamah Sakhaawi fully vindicate the authenticity of the Ahaadith of Hidaayah, and explain the reasons for the gross inability of the later critics in locating the sources of the Ahaadith narrated in Hidaayah.

May Allah Ta’ala save the Ummah from the villainy and shaitaaniyat of these cardboard maajin ‘muftis’ who are today available two for a cent. They are churned out like sausages.

‘Allāmah ‘Abd al-Rashīd al-Nu‘mānī (d. 1420 H) writes:

That which our Fuqahā’ – may Allāh have mercy on them – cited of hadīths and narrations in their works without describing a sanad or a source, as al-Sarakhsī (d. 490 H) does in al-Mabsūt, al-Kāsānī (d. 587) in al-Badā’i‘ and al-Marghīnānī (d. 593 H) in al-Hidāyah, these are hadīths and narrations which they found in the books of our early Imāms like al-Imām al-A‘zam (d. 150) and his two students [Abū Yūsuf and Muhammad], Ibn al-Mubārak (d. 181 H), al-Hasan al-Lu‘lu’ī (d. 204 H), Ibn Shujā‘ al-Thaljī (d. 267 H), ‘Īsā ibn Abān (d. 221), al-Khassāf (d. 261 H), al-Tahāwī (d. 321 H), al-Karkhī (d. 340 H) and al-Jassās (d. 370 H) – may Allāh (Exalted is He) have mercy on them.

Then those who sourced al-Hidāyah, al-Khulāsah and so on appeared, and they searched for these narrations in the records [of hadīths] compiled after [the year] 200 by the scholars of hadīth, and when they did not find [them] in them, they assessed them to be ‘strange’.

Some hold a bad opinion about these Imāms of the Fuqahā’, and attribute to them little knowledge of hadīth, and far-removed are they from that! How many a suspended hadīth (ta‘līq) there is of al-Bukhārī in his Sahīh on which the like of Ibn Hajar said: ‘I did not find it’, so will that which is suspected of our Hanafī masters be suspected of al-Bukhārī?! Rather, al-Sarakhsī, al-Kāsānī and al-Marghīnānī relied in this subject on their Imāms who are recognised for [their] retention (hifz), trustworthiness (thiqah) and reliability (amānah), just as al-Baghawī relied in his Masābīh on the authors of the well-known collections.

The Hāfiz of his time, Qāsim ibn Qutlūbughā (802 – 879 H), said:

“The early ones from our [Hanafī] scholars – may Allāh have mercy on them – would dictate juristic rulings and their evidences from the prophetic hadīths with their chains, like Abū Yūsuf in Kitāb al-Kharāj and al-Amālī; Muhammad in Kitāb al-Asl and al-Siyar; and likewise al-Tahāwī, al-Khassāf, [al-Jassās] al-Rāzī, al-Karkhī except in the Mukhtasars. Then those who depended on the books of the early ones came and cited the hadīths in books without clarifying the chain or the source.” (Munyat al-Alma‘ī, p. 9)

Had we wished, we would have cited many examples for you from the examples of these hadīths which those that sourced them assessed them to be ‘strange,’ while they are found in the book al-Āthār, for example, but space does not allow it.” (Al-Imām Ibn Mājah wa Kitābuhu l-Sunan, pp. 73-4)


The hadīth master and faqīh, ‘Allāmah Qāsim ibn Qutlūbughā, compiled Munyat al-Alma‘ī as an index of hadīths which al-Zayla‘ī and/or Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalānī could not locate in their respective works on sourcing the hadīths of al-Hidāyah, but which upon further inspection have been found to have a source. Here are a few examples:

The author of al-Hidāyah quoted the hadīth, “When the sun deviates [from its midpoint], then offer the Jumu‘ah prayer with the people.” Hāfiz al-Zayla‘ī said: “Strange”, meaning he could not locate it. Hāfiz Qāsim ibn Qutlūbughā replied: “Rather, Ibn Sa‘d narrated it in al-Tabaqāt from the hadīth of Mus‘ab ibn ‘Umayr.” (Munyat al-Alma‘ī, p 31)

The author of al-Hidāyah quoted the hadīth, “When you see anything of these horrors, take recourse to Allāh with supplication.” Hāfiz al-Zayla‘ī said: “Strange with this wording.” ‘Allāmah Qāsim replied: “Muhammad ibn al-Hasan narrated it in al-Asl from the mursal of al-Hasan [al-Basrī].” (Munyat al-Alma‘ī, p 32)

The author of al-Hidāyah quoted the hadīth, “There is no marriage except with witnesses.” Hāfiz al-Zayla‘ī said: “Strange,” and Hāfiz Ibn Hajar al-‘Aqalānī said: “I have not seen it with this wording.” ‘Allāmah Qāsim replied: “Muhammad ibn al-Hasan mentioned it as what reached him, and al-Khatīb narrated it from the hadīth of ‘Alī.” (Munyat al-Alma‘ī, p 40, 60)

The author of al-Hidāyah mentions that Sa‘īd ibn al-Musayyib narrated that the Messenger of Allāh (Allāh bless him and grant him peace) ordered the freeing of umm al-walads (female slaves who bore their masters’ children) and that they are not to be sold. Hāfiz Ibn Hajar said: “I did not find it.” ‘Allāmah Qāsim replied: “Muhammad ibn al-Hasan narrated it in al-Asl.” (Munyat al-Alma‘ī, p 61)

It is mentioned in al-Hidāyah that ‘Alī (may Allāh be pleased with him) gave the decree that if a woman besides one’s wife is brought to him and he is informed that this woman is his wife and he has intercourse with her, then there is no punishment on him but he must give her dowry. Hāfiz Ibn Hajar said: “I did not find it.” ‘Allāmah Qāsim replied: “‘Abd al-Razzāq [al-San‘ānī] narrated it.” (Munyat al-Alma‘ī, p. 61)

Describing the rank of the author of al-Hidāyah in hadīth, Mawlānā Nu‘mānī wrote in a private letter to his student, Muftī ‘Abdul Mālik of Bangladesh:

It is to be noticed that al-Laknawī counted the author of al-Hidāyah from the group that are strangers to the knowledge of hadīth, and that is incorrect. How [can this be so] when the author of al-Hidāyah compiled a list of his teachers [in hadīth] from which al-Qurashī quoted in al-Jawāhir al-Mudiyyah in many places, and I quoted them in the footnotes of al-Dirāsāt…There are many beneficial points in the biographies of the teachers of the author of al-Hidāyah in al-Jawāhir. There is the chain of the author of al-Hidāyah and a mention of his reading of the two Sahīhs, Jāmi‘ al-Tirmidhī, Sharh Ma‘ānī al-Āthār of al-Tahāwī, the Masānīd of al-Khassāf and other [hadīth collections] to his teachers.

It is established that the author of al-Hidāyah only transmitted from the books of his predecessors from the muhaddithūn of the Hanafī Fuqahā’ as is clear from reading Munyat al-Alma‘ī. In al-Hidāyah there are hadīths from al-Asl of Imām Muhammad, and his Kitāb al-Āthār, and other books of the Imāms. [Some of] these books were not under the range of al-Zayla‘ī’s and Ibn Hajar’s reading.” (Al-Madkhal ilā ‘Ulūm al-Hadīth al-Sharīf, Markaz al-Da‘wat al-Islāmiyyah, p. 103)


Jalāl al-Dīn al-Suyūtī said:

“The hadīth which al-Rāfi‘ī cited, we did not find a sanad for it. Nor is it found in the books of hadīth available now. The late Huffāz say of the like of this, “It has no basis.” The scrupulous [of them] suffice with their statement, “We did not find it,” which is better. It has reached me that Hāfiz Ibn Hajar was asked about these hadīths which our Imāms and the Hanafī Imāms cite in Fiqh [works] drawing evidence from them and are not known in the books of hadīth, so he answered: “Many of the books of hadīth, or most of them, have been lost in the eastern lands due to civil wars. Perhaps those hadīths were transmitted in them and they have not reached us.” (Quoted in Al-Madkhal ilā ‘Ulūm al-Hadīth al-Sharīf, p. 93)

The Early Fuqaha Had Their Own Chains For The Hadith, Many Of Which May Not Have Reached Us

The jurist (faqih) may cite an evidence which is the evidence of the Imam himself, and it is reported in a hadith book of the later hadith scholars who came after the time of the Imams of the schools of law, such as the 4 Sunan, Masanid, Mujam works etc. The hadith scholar adjudges it to be weak based on its chain of narration, or perhaps even fabricated, thus it cannot be acted upon with this chain of narration.

However at the same time that this hadith has been reported by the Imam with his own specific chain of narration which is Sahih or can be relied upon, but this Sahih chain is not mentioned in the hadith collection you have in front of you.

So someone comes along in the twentieth century and analyses the hadith from the route of the muhaddithin in their books, and finds that the hadith cannot be relied upon, so he will hurry to criticize and find fault with the ruling in the madhab which is based on this hadith. But if he looks in the works of the Imams he will find that the very same hadith has reached us with a Sahih or Hasan chain of narration.

A Misunderstanding Which Leads To Harbouring Bad Opinion Of The Madhabs

The lack of comprehending the previous point has caused some to harbour a bad opinion of the madhahib for when they checked the hadith mentioned in the books they may see the scholars of hadith classifying many of the hadith as: ‘fabricated, weak or not known in a marfu form’.

Thus the they think that these ahadith are from the deductions of the Imam of the Madhab himself, which then leads to the doubt of: ‘How can we accept the leadership in religious matters and Ijtihad for someone who deduces from fabricated and weak narrations, and attributes to the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) the statement which are actually the words of a companion (sahabi) of follower (tabiee)?’.

Example Of A Hanafi Ruling Which Has A Sahih Chain From The Imam But Was Only Discovered Later

An example to illustrate the above point is the following: Al-Marghinani mentions in al-Hidayah (4:139) with its commentary Fath al-Qadir the hadith:

“Ward off the legal punishments (hudud) due to doubts”.

He mentions that it is marfu, it was referenced by al-Zaylai in Nasb al-Rayah (3:333) in a mawquf form from Sayyidina Umar, Muadh ibn Jabal, Uqbah bin Amir, and in the chain of narration to them is Ibn Abi Farukh, and he is abandoned as a narrator, and from al-Zuhri, and he is follower (Tabi) whose words are not a proof.

Due to this weakness Ibn Hazm attacked these narrations in al-Muhalla, but the was refuted by Kamal Ibn al-Hummam in Fath al-Qadir, for he established for the hadith its meaning from another hadith mentioned in the two Sahih’s that:

“He (Allah bless him and give him peace) said to Maiz: perhaps you (only) kissed, perhaps you (only) touched, perhaps you (only) winked/signalled”.

The fine point Ibn al-Hummam is making here is that the first hadith which is supposedly weak is supported in meaning by this second hadith where the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) is trying to ward off implementing the legal punishment. Thus Ibn al-Hummam established the authenticity of the first narration from the same meaning implicit in the second.

The Authentic Chain For This Hadith Found With Imam Abu Hanifah Although The Well Known Chains For It Are Weak, And Was Missed By Many Hadith Specialists

The hadith mentioned by al-Marghinani which al-Zaylai declared weak in marfu form is however narrated by Imam Abu Hanifah in his Musnad (p.32), its chain of narration being:

“From Miqasam from Ibn Abbas that he said: The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said…”.

Miqasam is trustoworthy (thiqah), he was declared trustworthy by Ahmad bin Salih al-Misri, al-Ijli, Yaqub bin Sufyan and al-Darqutni.

There is no other Sahih chain of narration for this hadith except this one of Imam Abu Hanifah. So from this example we learn that the Imams had their own specific chains of narrations which are not often referred to when referencing ahadith.

So look at this example and take note. The Hafidh of hadith al-Zaylai could not not find this Sahih chain, and Ibn al-Hummam who was a great hadith scholar himself did not abandon the position of his madhab just because he couldn’t find a Sahih chain for this narration, rather he tried to look and see if there was anything which could be used as a proof for the position of the Imam, he did not abandon the position of the madhab as some nowadays would have done, but rather stuck with the madhab and in the end was borne out as being correct, whilst the Hadith which Saahib al-Hidaya qouted which eluded ALL the later Muhaddithun (e.g. Hafiz Ibn Abd al-Hadi, 7th Century, branded it an outright fabrication) turned out to be completely Saheeh!

The only safe investment nowadays is gold coins.

Keep the focus on Allah Ta’ala. Make dua for aafiyat.



Mujlisul Ulama of S.A.

this is from the majlis vol 21 number 10 January 2013

Brother in the prevailing circumstances the best investment is gold coins. People who had purchased krugerrands five years ago have earned more than 100% profit when they sold their coins. Coins purchased a couple of years ago for R6000 are worth more than R15,000 today. Gold coins are a clean and fully Shar’i compliant investment.
But on-line gold dealing is not permissible. No other investment pays such huge dividends as gold coins.

from majlis vol 24 number 5 august 2017

Do not be deceived by the creature called ‘islamic banking’. There is no halaal Islamic banking anywhere in the world. All so-called ‘islamic’ banks are Riba banks halaalized by liberal molvis and sheikhs – scholars for dollars. They dub their riba and baatil transactions with fancy Islamic terminology to dupe the ignorant public. They are in the same category as these evil carrion halaalizing outfits.
Those who have surplus cash, should invest in gold coins to offset the effects of erosion by inflation.



What is the meaning of ‘Waqf Qur’baani”? Khanqah Imdadia Ashrafia of Karachi, Pakistan is advertising its “Waqf Qur’baani” project, and is asking for contributors. This is the first time I have heard that Qur’baani of animals also comes within the scope of Waqf. Please explain this concept.


There is no ‘Waqf Qur’baani’ concept or teaching in Islam. Waqf is germane to assets. The Waaqif (the one who makes the Waqf) relinquishes his ownership which reverts to Allah Ta’ala. Waqf is the dedication of an asset in the Path of Allah Ta’ala. The asset remains and its benefits are utilized for the intended purpose of the Waqf, e.g. a property is made Waqf for a Musjid, Madrasah or Yateem Khaanah; a land is made Waqf for a Qabrustaan.

Animals which are slaughtered, regardless of the noble purpose such as Qur’baani/Sadqah, are not Waqf. The act of Qur’baani/Sadqah is rewardable. There is thawaab for it. This cannot be termed Waqf.

Qur’baani is either Waajib or Nafl. It is not Waqf.



Can one animal be made Qur’baani for several deceased persons?


Qur’baani of a small animal (goat/sheep) is for only one person whether the person is alive or dead and whether it is Waajib or Nafl Qur’baani. Qur’baani of a big animal (ox/ buffalo/camel) can be made for seven persons, dead or alive.

However, the thawaab of one animal or one share may be intended for many persons whether alive or dead. The Qur’baani will be for the person making it, but the thawaab will be according to his intention.


I did not make Qur’baani for many years although it was Waajib on me. Will the seven shares in a cow suffice for Qadha Qur’baani of seven years?


No, it will not suffice. For Qadha Qur’baani a whole animal is incumbent. Either a goat/sheep or a big animal. Regardless of the seven shares in a big animal, the animal will suffice for only Qadha of one year.


Is it permissible to give Qur’baani meat to the kuffaar?


According to the Hanafi Math-hab, it is permissible. It is not permissible for Shaafis.


Is it permissible for a person to sell his Qur’baani meat?


It is not permissible to sell one’s own Qur’baani meat.


If a person on whom Qur’baani is not Waajib buys an animal with the intention of making Qur’baani, can he later cancel his intention and not make the Qur’baani?


If he purchases an animal during the days of Qur’baani with the intention of Qur’baani, then making Qur’baani of the animal is compulsory. He may not cancel his intention.


If someone buys an animal for Qur’baani. However, before slaughtering it, the animal died. What is the ruling?


If Qur’baani is Waajib on the person, he has to purchase another animal for Qur’baani. If Qur’baani is not Waajib, then it is not necessary to buy another animal.


What should be done with the milk of the Qur’baani animal?


The milk should be given as Sadqah to the poor.


It has happened in the past that the Qur’baani animals become mixed and the owners are unable to recognize their specific animals. In this scenario what should be done?


Everyone should slaughter any animal from the flock. The Qur’baani of everyone will be valid.

A Brother writes:

Yesterday (Saturday 11 June 2022) in Lenasia there was a house party at a Muslims house). The house is very near to the Masjid. The music was so loud and the voices of both males and females were so loud that I could hear it in my own house.

It is really amazing and totally unexpected of Muslims conducting themselves in such kuffaar mannerism. All the neighbours thought that it was a kuffaar party only to find out that the music and screaming sounds of men and women were coming from the house of the Muslim.

This clearly shows that these Muslims do not respect the Masjid nor do they respect their Muslim neighbours. They showed no respect whatsoever for the Deen.

They were jiving and singing on top of their voices to the music artists they were listening and playing their music.

Everyday we see that the situation of Muslims in South Africa and in so-called strong Muslim communities is deteriorating to that of wild monkeys and baboons jumping, screaming, singing, playing the devil’s music loud and partying.

Was Covid (I am talking specifically about the deaths and not the plot of the west) not an eye opener as to how many people have died recently. We have just exited Ramadan and are close to the month of Zul-Hijjah and yet we go on like this.

The most annoying factor was the screeching voices and sounds come out of the mouths of the women of that household. Yes, the boys were also performing and singing along with the kaafir musicians whose music they were playing.

Insha’Allah, if I am able, I plan to leave the Lenasia community and move away from the evil and immorality happening here.

Daily you see reports of Muslims involved in some sort of issue like hijacking, fraud, selling one car to ten people, music, dancing, partying, disrespecting the Masajid, women driving with their so called “purdah” up and exposing their faces, violating the laws of Allah with no care in the world and the list can go on and on.

This is the democracy that we all had desired. Soon a time will come in South Africa where the only things of Islam left will be it’s empty Masajid (buildings) and the people will be bereft of Deen. Stripped of Deen and behaving like kufaar jaahils.

Insha’Allah I look forward to the comments of the Mujlisul Ulama whom we look to for guidance in these troubled and turbulent times after ALLAH SWT (firstly) as there is no more Ulama who speak up, who do not hide the truth in order to be liked by the people. Many people say “O look at how wonderful that Moulana or Mufti is!” And their praise of him is because he hides the truth and makes falsehood seem normal and acceptable. They do not speak up and tell the people the truth. The truth is a bitter pill. Friday Jumuah is no longer to correct the masses who are on the wrong path. The Jumuahs are about “I travelled here and there and saw this and that” while the Haqq is kept away from the masses. Please comment.

(End of the Brother’s letter)


“He (the vile transgressor) is the one whom Allah has cursed and on whom He has cast His Wrath. And Allah has made from them apes and swines, and they worship Shaitaan. They are in status the worst (of mankind) and the most deviated from the Straight Path.”

(Al-Maaidah, Aayat 60)

“When they transgressed (all limits) of that which had been prohibited for them, We said to them: “Become Disgraceful Baboons!”

(Al-A’raaf, Aaya 166)

Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“When We intend to destroy (the people of) a town (or city, etc.), then We command its affluent people (i.e. give them free run). Then they perpetrate fisq (immorality) in the town. Then the Decree (of Athaab) becomes confirmed for them. We then utterly destroy them.”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) mentioned that with the approach of Qiyaamah, there will be people who will become disfigured and transformed into apes and pigs whilst they will be enjoying themselves in their vice and immorality – music and liquor. The shaitaani perpetrations of fisq and fujoor on a massive scale of filth and obscenity as explained in the aforementioned letter as well as is observed nowadays generally in wedding halls, are setting the stage for the transformation of people into apes and swines, and this is in the literal and physical sense.

The hearts and minds of these vile followers of Shaitaan have already been disfigured into the hearts of apes and swines. The time will come when the rijs in their hearts will become manifest on their faces in the form of disfigurement of faces into pigs and baboons.

The reality is that these SWINES are not Muslims. They have long ago destroyed their Imaan if ever they had any semblance of Imaan. The rot which is explained in this letter as well as in several other letters by concerned Muslims is the tip of the iceberg of filth and vice wracking the Muslim community. Muslims basking in opulence, even those who are feigning to be of the ‘religious’ type, are wallowing in the filth of moral degradation. The numerous bounties of Allah Ta’ala they enjoy and misuse, and their millions have lulled them into a torrid, fearful complacency which bodes destruction. And, this destruction will be the Athaab of Allah Azza Wa Jal. And, this Athaab of Allah Ta’ala will overtake and apprehend the South African Muslim community as sure as the rising of the sun in the east.

When fisq and fujoor traverse the rubicon, then it heralds the all-engulfing Divine Punishment which will uproot the community. This Athaab will arrive in either the form of some natural disaster or an unstoppable tide of xenophobic violence which will pillage, plunder and destroy everything in its pathway. This will be the Scheme of Allah Ta’ala, about which the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Never will you find for the Sunnah of Allah a change.”

Utterly uprooting and destroying nations when they reach the point of no return – when all hope for their reformation has faded into oblivion – is of the Sunnah of Allah Azza Wa Jal.

“(Ponder! Reflect!) How many nations have We destroyed after Nooh!”

(Al-A’raaf, Aayat 17)

“Many were the towns We had destroyed. Thus Our Punishment came (suddenly) to them during the night or whilst they were resting (in the afternoon).”

(Al-A’raaf, Aayat 4)

Let these baboons and swines just not forget that one of the forms of the Athaab of Allah Azza Wa Jal is the Whip of XENOPHOBIA. The Muslim community is sitting on a time bomb ticking away.

The Influence of Television

The Influence of Television

This article should be regarded as advice specifically for the Munaafiq, Faajir, Faasiq RIJS (FILTH) molvis who are blatantly, brazenly and most flagrantly committing KUFR by selling their souls to Iblees who has urinated into their brains to become television actors. Furthermore, the arch mudhil, Taqi Usmaani is the prime Agent of Iblees in this Jahannami saga. Purely on the instruction and influence of Iblees did Mr.Taqi open up the door for this television fitnah with His stupid, haraam halaalizing of pictography.

by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh)

One of the many sunnats of the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus Salaam) is that of Hayaa (shame and modesty), a quality which is sorely missing in the lives of the majority of Muslims today and which should otherwise be an outstanding characteristic and feature of all Muslims, whether married or un-married.

Television is such an evil that if our society only understood its reality, then they would find no excuse to watch. Its spiritual harm is that it takes away the hayaa and shame of our men, women and children.

The content of most television programmes is nothing but immodesty and indecency, which invites nothing but immodesty and indecency – into our homes, into our lives and the lives of our children.

However, this truth and reality seems to just pass over the understanding of even those Muslims who have some link with Deen.

Many are regular with Salaah, they are seen in the Musjid, they are wearing the garb of the pious and yet they will be the ones to present flimsy and feeble excuses to view television programmes.

Let us consider this situation of sin from the following view – which Alhamdulillah, has been a means of many getting rid of the television.

If a person has to knock on your door and tell you : ‘I would like to use your lounge to commit adultery.’

Or a group of some friends have to request you : ‘We would like to use your home to gamble and enjoy our liquor.’ Or a group of youngsters have to tell you : ‘We have chosen your home as a venue for our partying, dancing, drug-taking and fornicating.’ Or a Christian family has to request you : ‘We would like to use your home as a venue for our church ceremony : The marriage of our daughter as well as the baptism of our grandchild.

We have already obtained the consent of one of our priests.’ Or some idol-worshippers have to suggest : ‘We would like to carry out some of our religious rites in your home. We would like to bring our idols also. You are more than welcome to observe or participate in our rites. ’

Many Muslims, on hearing such requests, will get very angry; will express disgust – if not swear and curse such suggestions.

However, these very same Muslims who will even resort to swearing and cursing such proposals, invite into their homes all of the above by the switch of the television, by hiring English and Hindi films and DVDs and downloading porn and other films from the Internet. There is so much of adultery, partying and other filth that we seem to just welcome into our homes – least realizing the consequences.

Just to give you one example and this is but the tip of the iceberg – and it is said with the intention of removing the blindfold that most parents wear :

A father of four children mentioned to me that he had got rid of his television and he thereafter explained why.

He said that late one night he heard strange noises from his children’s room. On opening the door of their room, he found their television switched on.

This is our concept of modesty , parents must have their own television, to view all kinds of filthy programmes in their privacy, and children must have their own television to view all kinds of indecency in their privacy (Na-uzu Billah).

The father mentioned that there were dirty and obscene scenes of naked people on the television screen. He mentioned that it was filthy and that it shocked him; but what had him even more shaken was that his children were all undressed, engaging in the same kind of indecent acts.

They were imitating the pornography they were viewing. He said himself, that until then he had not considered the harm of television. It took this kind of incident to wake him up. This is just one example of so many. Do we wish to face something similar ?

Do we care to even know what our sons and daughters are doing in the secrecy of their rooms ? The fact that many demand that no one ‘invade’ their space and privacy to the extent of having ‘No Entry’ signs on their doors, should have parents a little more than worried especially if they are viewing television and are surfing the net or have free access with cell phones.

Many have written, that after watching certain films or programmes, the desire came strongly into their hearts to take drugs, drink liquor, murder their parents, indulge in homosexuality, engage in adulterous relationships, commit suicide, rape, and so much else – and many of them do so.

Moreover, with sins like television and evil, lustful glancing, Allah Ta’ala removes the love between husband and wife and even ones children become disobedient.

There are many husbands who entertain thoughts of and fantasize of other women when with their wives. And they will when they are watching different actresses and television presenters.

Many wives are guilty of the same infidelity having seen or socialized with ghair-mahareem. Many women are so infatuated and obsessed with some soccer player or cricket player that they become dissatisfied with their husbands, and spend their time fantasizing.

Had the person not viewed all those ghair-mahareem (impermissible women) on the television screen and computer screen, and had lowered his gaze in real life situations, then he would not have desired that which he cannot have, and there would not have been dissatisfaction with his (or her) spouse.

Moreover we complain that there is no barkat in our homes; there is no barkat in our wealth; there is no barkat in our time. Our children are rebellious. The husband is having an extra-marital relationship. The daughter has accepted Christianity. The son is on drugs and the list of complaints does not end.

Then who is to blame except the one who brought all of this Haraam into the home by purchasing the television and exposing the family to so much of sin.

Great ‘Ulama became Bay’at upon the hands of Maulana Hakeem Fakhrudeen (Rahmatullah ‘alaih). He mentioned that there was a time, that with the rising and setting of the sun, he saw nothing but noor in Surat.

The atmosphere was one of noor. The day commenced with Salaah, Tilawat, Zikrullah.

After the cinemas and television and videos flooded Surat, there was nothing but ‘zulmat’ (darkness).

With the distraction of such entertainment, Ibaadah becomes a forgotten duty.

One Wali of Allah Ta’ala, on visiting a home, mentioned that he perceived the sin of Zina (adultery) from the walls of that home. He was able to recognize this due to the purity of his heart. The residents of that home were not indulging in adultery but they were watching the sin on television.

When fire burns against a white wall, it blackens the wall. The Ahle-Dil (pious people), with their purified hearts, see the fire of sins which has burnt and blackened the white hearts of the Muslims.

Would that we take lesson and take measures to protect ourselves and our children.

unnecessary imported non-essential goods

As salaamu alaikum
Dear hazrat;
We would like to hear your comments on the following:
Omar Javaid:
میں نے ایک مفتی صاحب سے کچھ دن پہلے ایک سوال پوچھا:
اسلام علیکم، پوچھنا یہ تھا کے جو ملک اشیاء import کرنے کے لیے IMF سے سود پر قرضہ لیتا ہو کیا اس ملک کے
شہری کا غیر ضروری imported non-essential اشیاء کا خریدنا اور افراطِ زر کو بڑھانے میں حصہ دار بنا جائز ہے
کہ نہیں؟
جواب: جائز ہے اگرچہ مناسب نہیں۔۔ الا یہ کہ حکومت امپورٹ پر پابندی عائد کردے ۔۔۔ پھر اولی الامر کی خلاف ورزی
کی وجہ سے ناجائز ہوگا

I asked a Mufti Sahib a question a few days ago:
Peace be upon you, I just wanted to ask that a country that takes loans from IMF on interest to import goods, is it permissible for a citizen of that country to buy unnecessary imported non-essential goods and participate in increasing the excess of gold?
Answer: It is permissible though not appropriate.. Except that the government imposes a ban on imports.. Then it will be illegal because of Oli-Umar’s violation..

Ali Raza Saleem
The boundary between essential and non essential is subjective..

Omar Javaid
Ali Raza Saleem there is perhaps a gray zone, but it is not broad enough to cover everything, there is clearly a list of stuff I believe where there can’t be any debate … If you ask me, we should not be even importing tea ….

Umãir Sãni
If its possible for a follow up:

  1. The verse in which the command to obey the First Command of Allah and His Messenger (Peace Be Upon Him) is the command to obey Allah and His Messenger, before that, was it not obedience to the creatures in disobedience of the Creator?
  2. The attributes of Oli-Amar include the ability to “discipline” according to the Quran, do the current rulers live up to this definition?

Mudassir Ijaz Paracha
I asked a question about real estate, and the answer was exactly the same. Not every legitimate job with this increase.

The government of Pakistan is kuffaar. Every government in Pakistan
since its inception, has abolished the Shariah. Disobeying the laws
of this kuffaar, murtad government is NEVER sinful.



Mujlisul Ulama of S.A.




Is the Discovery Health Medical Scheme Shariah compliant? Please see their explanation and claim.


The information sent by you and others is devoid of any Shar’i substance. The information does not provide the slightest clue to confirm that the scheme is indeed compliant with the Shariah. The information contained in the adverts of the medical company is simply a monotonous regurgitation of the claim of the scheme being Shariah compliant.

The true colours of the scheme will be portrayed in the contract. Acquire a copy of the actual contract. We shall then comment in detail, Insha-Allah.

It is difficult to accept that any insurance deal/scheme prepared by modernists could ever be Shariah compliant. They are adept in the art of using Islamic terminologies to market their haraam capitalist products, in the same style as do these capitalist, haraam riba so-called ‘islamic’ banks. They are old haraam riba wine in new bottles. However, since the bottles are transparent, it will not be difficult to ascertain the type of wine in the bottle.

Muslims should introduce the Aakhirah in their lives and cultivate some Tawakkul. There will always be trials in this dunya which Allah Ta’ala has created to be the arena of conflict between haraam and halaal. This is the ground for our trial. In a Khutbah, Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu) said:

“O People! Reform your souls, then your outward (physical/material) life will become reformed. Practice for your Aakhirah. It will suffice for your worldly needs.”

9 Zul Qa’dh 1443 – 10 June 2022




Once a man came to Hadhrat Bishr Haafi (Rahmatullah alayh) and said that he had saved 200 dinars (gold coins) for a Nafl Hajj. He had come seeking advice. Hadhrat Bishr asked the man to state whether he planned to go on the journey for merrymaking or for the acquisition of thawaab (reward). He promptly responded that his intention was thawaab.

Hadhrat Bishr (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “If your intention is thawaab, then I shall advise you with a better way of gaining the reward of 200 accepted Hajj. Distribute the 200 dinars to either ten orphans or ten widows or ten hard-pressed families, and I assure you of the thawaab of 200 Hajj.”

The man said that his heart was set on performing Hajj. Hadhrat Bishr then said: “As long as you do not waste the money in haraam avenues, you will not derive peace.” He implied that since the money was not acquired in a halaal manner, this man would not derive satisfaction as long as he does not waste it on the haraam merrymaking tour which he described as Nafl Hajj to soothe his conscience. Thus, those who squander money on these haraam merrymaking tours should understand that there is considerable contamination in their wealth, hence they incline towards the shaitaaniyat of israaf. The Qur’aan Majeed describes them as Ikhwaanush shayaateen (brothers of the devils).


Al-Barzali said: “Our Shaikh Abu Muhammad Ash-Shabeebi narrating from Taalib said: “The Shayaateen (Devils) of the east and the west became involved in a dispute. Who among them are the greatest deceivers (misleading people)? The devils of the east said to the devils of the west: ‘We are greater than you in deception because we incite a man to commit sin and perpetrate prohibitions in the abodes of the Ambiya (in the Holy Places).’ The Shayaateen of the West responded: ‘We are greater (in the art of deception). We find a man with his wife and children performing the Fardh Salaat, paying Zakaat and practising other acts (of virtue). He is in a state of comfort and his Angels are with him.

Then comes along the (Hajj / Umrah) agent (such as the travel agencies and Sahuc, Khidmatul Awaam) enticing people to travel to the land of Hijaaz (for Hajj and Umrah). Then we (the devils of the west) goad and induce him to come out (i.e. undertake the journey). We poke them with a knife (a figurative expression for the shaitaani snare of enticement. Then he cries (yearns to go for Umrah). Thus he emerges for the journey. From the day he leaves (his home) we induce him to neglect the Faraaidh and to violate the prohibitions (of the Shariah) – from the day of his departure until the day of his return to his family. Thus, he is in loss regarding himself and his wealth in the east and the west.

Then the Shayaateen of the East acknowledged the superiority of the Shayaateen of the West in the art of deception.”

Al-Barzali said: “Verily, I have witnessed some of this in my Hajj journey. We seek safety from Allah.”

(Mawaahibul Jaleel)

In this discussion of the two groups of shayaateen there is a sombre lesson for those who undertake the merrymaking tours. They dwell in self and shaitaani deception.

It does not behove any sincere Muslim to soothe his aching conscience with deceptive arguments to justify the mock merrymaking, haraam holiday in the name of Hajj and Umrah.

The Ummah is ablaze, burning in a cauldron of suffering, poverty and jahaalat. Millions of Muslims are starving and wallowing in such abject Deeni ignorance which threatens to extinguish their Imaan. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: 

“The Muslimoon (the Ummah) is like one man. If the eye pains, the whole Body is affected. If the head pains, the whole body is affected.”

Alas! Today this is neither the emotional feeling nor the intellectual understanding of Muslims, even of those Muslims who believe that they are ‘deendaar’ (religious). They dwell in the self-deception of being involved in ‘ibaadat; when in reality, due to the circumstances, they are trapped in sin and Athaab. Instead of returning from Umrah and Hajj purified of sin, they return loaded with sin. For these ‘deendaar’ people, Hadhrat Fudhail Bin Iyaad (Rahmatullah alayh) said: 

“There are people who emerge from their bathrooms purified of sin. While others return from the Ka’bah loaded with the burden of sin.”

Instead of returning from Hajj purified of all sins, these miserable tourists languishing in shaitaani self-deception returned with sins and darkened souls. Yet those who emerge from their bathrooms after having made wudhu or ghusl come out purified of sins.

For more detailed comment on these haraam holiday jaunts in the name of umrah and hajj, read our booklet: Tourism and Islam – A Satanic Mockery of Hajj and Umrah. See our website www.themajlis.co.za Hard copies are also available.

Instead of contributing the millions of rands to aid the suffering Muslims, these so-called ‘pious’ people squander their money of haraam holidays and merrymaking in the name of ‘umrah’ and ‘hajj’. That is because their wealth is mushtabah or haraam. They are heartless shayaateen in human form.

Question of Brothers from West Africa:

Assalamu Alaikum waRahmatullah,

Respected Elders and Brothers,

Many provisions of the universal declaration of human rights and international laws, now assimilated and adopted in many majority Muslim constitutions, regard the rulings of the Shariah or Islamic law as unjust and against human dignity:

Hadd punishments – lashing, amputations of hands, stoning to death – are regarded by these constitutions as torture or inhumane treatment contrary to human dignity, and thus the whole Islamic criminal justice system is viewed as unjust, unjustifiable and unacceptable.

Under these laws, apostasy, a capital offence under Shariah rule is legalized and the offender is covered and protected by the provision of freedom of thought, conscience and religion which include the right to change one’s religion;

With the provisions giving the right to freedom of expression and the press, bad and evil people have the right to own, establish and operate any medium of information, ideas and opinions, some of which encourage immoralities, embark on social engineering programs against Islam, promotion of democracy, de-Islamization policies, etc through the media which are contrary to Islamic law.

Provisions give the right to freedom from discrimination which regard more legal rights to men as discriminatory against women, especially in the entitlement of the male heir with double share of that of the female in many cases of succession under Islamic law as well as in other domains of the Shariah.

With this constitutional situation prevailing in many Muslim countries (in fact, in all Muslim countries –The Majlis), and its devastating impact on every aspect of Muslim life, what is the program and advice for a Muslim to save himself and his family?


We are in the era which is in close proximity to Qiyaamah. This evil trend and satanic culture mentioned by you will only be incremental. Nothing will become better. All so-called Muslim countries are in the firm grip of kufr and shaitaaniyat. All regimes and governments in control of the lands of Islam are today confirmed Munaafiqeen, Murtaddeen and Kuffaar. The Deen is today only in Kitaabs, and true Muslims are all underground in their graves.

The stage for Dajjaal has been set. All the kufr regimes at the helm of Muslim affairs are reflections of the kufr and villainy of the masses. Allah Ta’ala imposes on people rulers who are a reflection of the deeds and misdeeds of the masses.

We are today in the age about which Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) advised:

“Leave the affairs of the people!”

In other words: It is every man for himself. It is swim or sink. Be concerned with your own and your family’s moral reformation. The entire Ummah is rotten and the Ulama are rotten to the core. There is today no worse and no more villainous species of humanity than the ulama-e-soo’ whom Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) feared more than even Dajjaal. We are in the middle of a raging ocean being buffeted by storms of kufr, fisq and fujoor which are being promoted by the ulama-e-soo’ who are the primary cause for the destruction of the Ummah.

Brothers, there is nothing we can do other than to:

Be firm in Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar
Attend to our own moral reformation
Engage in Ibaadat
Be in seclusion as much as possible

Look after yourselves and your immediate families – forget about others. The time will soon come when a man will wish to be in the grave. It will become extremely difficult and even dangerous to keep your Imaan afloat. Just make dua and hope for the best. We are in a veritable spiritual minefield. Walk with care otherwise you will blow up your Imaan. Was-salaam
