DEVELOPING CONTINGENCIES OF TRADE AND COMMERCE

I had contemplated to compile a treatise consisting of all new developing trade and commerce scenarios of this era, and their consequential Shar‟i Ahkaam (Rulings), and to name the compilation Hawaadithul Fataawa. I had planned that traders and all those connected to trade and commerce should explain their respective dealings, contracts and concepts pertaining to trade and commerce. I did publicize this intention, however, no one had co-operated. Nevertheless, I did of my own accord, prepare a concise treatise on this subject. But due to its conciseness, it is inadequate. Despite this, at least it will become known from a perusal of this concise treatise that for all new developments, expediencies and contingencies the Shar‟i rulings are all to be found in the expositions of the Fuqaha. They had formulated such principles which embrace all new developments.
This was the wonderful karaamat (miracle) of those illustrious Souls.
Our Comment
In the final analysis, the Decree of Allah Ta‘ala prevails. Since Allah Ta‘ala did not will the contemplated Treatise of Hadhrat to become a reality, it did not materialize. The decrees of Allah Ta‘ala are saturated with wisdom. If Hadhrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) had succeeded in his wish to compile what he had contemplated, it would have become problematic for the Ulama-eHaqq of our current era. This is so, because Hadhrat Thanvi‘s formulation of the Ahkaam would have been based on either grossly insufficient information or gross misinformation. The traders would have presented their personal understanding of trade dealings and contracts, and Hadhrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) would have issued his Fataawa on such shaky basis dangling on the precipice of butlaan. A typical example is Hadhrat Thanvi‘s fatwa of permissibility of dealing in ‗shares .When the question of shares was posed to Hadhrat, he called a trader from Saharanpur to explain to him what exactly are ‗shares‘. The poor trader who was ignorant in this field proffered an explanation on the basis of which Hadrat Thanvi concluded that it was a valid Shirkat (Partnership). What we are mentioning is not our mere understanding, but was confirmed by Hadhrat Maulana Masihullah (Rahmatullah alayh) who had very carefully perused and studied our Fatwa on the impermissibility of shares after the Ulama of Mia‘s Farm had complained to him regarding our stance of impermissibility. Hadhrat Masihullah (Rahmatullah alayh) said to this writer: ―In fact, Hadhrat Thanvi had also purchased some shares. But this is an issue which depends on constantly surfacing facts.‖ At this juncture of the conversation, Hadhrat Masihullah (Rahmatullah alayh) concurred with the correctness of our Fatwa. Furthermore, Hadhrat Mufti Mahmoodul Hasan Gangohi (Rahmatullah alayh) had also concurred with our Fatwa. But the compilers of his Fataawa Mahmoodiyyah deemed it brilliant to exclude this particular Fatwa from the collection of his Fataawa. When true fear for Allah Ta‘ala is lacking, then the nafs advises suppression of the Haqq, but the Haqq will not remain long suppressed. It must necessarily surface and in the words of the Qur‘aan: ―Smash out the brains of baatil.‖
Thus, it was a Bounty of Allah Ta‘ala for us of this era that Hadhrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) was not permitted by Divne Decree to give practical effect to his contemplation. If he had succeeded, then today all these molvis of soo‘ and baatil preponderating the globe would have quoted him as the final authority just as they are today citing the glaring errors of Mufti Taqi Sahib as daleel for the ‗permissibility‘ of haraam pictography, haraam riba, etc.
Our Akaabir Ulama of decades ago were disadvantaged by the fact that for any new development of the West they were generally reliant on Zindeeqs professing to be Muslims, for information and explanation. These university products with their donkey qualifications, either intentionally or due to their own ignorance, would misinform the Akaabir Ulama. Since our Senior Ulama were not versant in English, they were constrained to rely on the warped conceptions and misinformation fed to them by modernist Muslim doctors, professors, traders and the like.
Alhamdulillah! Thumma Alhamdulillah! We are not languishing in the same kind of disadvantage of our Akaabir Ulama. Allah Ta‘ala has adequately equipped us to understand and nullify the avalanche of baatil which the modernist zanaadaqah are peddling. Today their baatil is supported by even molvis and sheikhs who have betrayed Allah Ta‘ala and His Rasool, and the Ummah for the sake of the miserable dollars they earn for churning out fatwas of jawaaz (permissibility) for haraam products.
Allah Ta‘ala has therefore made us independent of all these modernist morons who can no longer get away with the bamboozling shenanigans with which they used to trick and deceive the Akaabir Ulama of decades ago. Doctors, lawyers, scientists and experts
in all spheres of mundane life can no longer bamboozle the Ulama-e-Haq whom Allah Ta‘ala has made independent by granting them the requisite intellectual foundation to administer the Haq and to degrade the modernist zanaadaqah from their heights of hubris. This Haq will be perpetuated until the Day of Qiyaamah. Its Call will always remain loud, clear and it will overwhelm the combined forces of all the Agents of Dajjaal and Iblees. Giving us this assurance,

Allah Ta‘ala states in the Qur‘aan Majeed:
“The Haq has arrived and baatil has vanished, for verily, baatil (by its very nature) must vanish.”
(Mujlisul Ulama)

EVILS OF WOMEN ATTENDING MUSJIDS

THE EVILS OF WOMEN ATTENDING MUSJIDS

A  Brother from Durban writes:

“I live in a small suburb of Durban wherein there is only one Masjid. Apart from the many “different” things done by the trustees, one of the most concerning, is the facilities made available for women to perform their 5 daily salaah at the Masjid. I understand the prohibition, but my concern is if their salaah is even accepted, taking into consideration the following:

The ladies salaah area is a level above the main Masjid. From above they have no view of the men performing salaah and vice versa. The only way possible for them to follow the imam is by listening through the speakers. Is their salaah accepted taking into consideration the only way of them following the imam, is through the mic system? This proved to be a problem during Taraweeh, as many went into ruku when the imam made takbeer for sajdah tilawah, and only realised their mistake when the imam made takbeer again and began reciting qiraat.

Unfortunately, women are present for almost every salaah. In the basement parking, the men and women’s entrance to the Musjid area is in full view of each other, making it almost impossible to go up to the Masjid without seeing a women who happens to go up at the same time. 

Another major problem in Durban is the use of the mic system. Almost every single Masjid, be it the smallest, along with tiny musallas, make use of the mic system. Masaajid with the Imam’s qiraat being audible even outside, make use of the mic even when there is only a few saffs. A few days ago, in the our local Masjid, the mic system failed during Salaah and I could hear the Imam’s qiraat crystal clear from the 8th saff! The mic has unfortunately become a new “necessity”. Please advise on the above issues, respect Mufti Saheb.”

ANSWER

The consequences of haraam are always morally and spiritually destructive. The Shariah prohibits women from the Musaajid, but these juhala, fussaaq ‘trustees’ and the ulama-e-soo’ deem it appropriate to use the Musjid for the perpetration of haraam.

The Salaat of the women explained above, is not valid.  The whole scenario is a lamentable and an ugly mockery of Salaat, and a flagrant violation of the Shariah. Leave alone the fussaaq trustees, even the imaams and the molvis are oblivious of the evils of women attending the Musjid. Their Imaan is thoroughly desensitized, hence their spiritual hearts are dead and their spiritual eyes are blind.

“The eyes are not blind, but the hearts within the breasts are blind.”

(Qur’aan)

Even the environs of the Musaajid have become platforms for sin. Only women who have the attitudes and tendencies of lesbians and prostitutes feel comfortable to be in and near to male gatherings. That is why they disdain and abhor the advice of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) for women to perform Salaat in the remotest corners of their homes. For them the best ‘musjids’ are their homes. But today, the ulama themselves have opened up many doorways of fitnah – fisq, fujoor and bid’ah.

Muslim women – the vast majority – no longer have Imaani hayaa. They now excel in lewdness. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

   “A woman who applies perfumes and passes by a gathering is like this and like that (i.e. a prostitute).”

“TRANSFORMATION” AND RE-INTERPRETATION

THE KUFR OF “TRANSFORMATION” AND RE-INTERPRETATION
There is no renaissance in Islam

A Sister from Newcastle commenting on the published views of some rascal zindeeqs, says:

“My eyes happened to fall on this article (attached) which appeared on the front page of the Newcastle Advertiser. I am deeply perturbed by its contents. It seems like shayaateen in human form are assisting Shaitaan-Iblees with his work. I fail to understand what re-awakening and transformation are they calling for except that which will alter the authentic Shariah. Why would they publish this on the first page of the non-Muslim community newspaper? Please comment and advise.” (End of the Sister’s letter)

COMMENT

There is a sinister, pernicious global shaitaani plot to destroy Islam, which of course the Rubbishes and Rascals of Hizbush Shaitaan will never succeed in. Allah Ta’ala has undertaken the responsibility of safeguarding His Deen. The Qur’aan Majeed confirming this Divine Responsibility, sates:

“We have revealed the Thikr (the Qur’aan and the

Deen arising from it), and We are its Protectors.”

We reproduce here the full text of the garbage and kufr views of some members of Hizbush Shaitaan (The League of Iblees):

Inqilaab NKZN is a new, cutting edge newsletter that seeks in its simplistic form a need for change in Islamic thought and discourse. The Urdu word ‘Inqilaab’ means revolution and is derived from the Arabic root word ‘Iqlab’ which means change or transformation. The version of this online publication is to provide a platform for Islamic understanding, tracking the need to transform ourselves in alignment with contemporary literature and of course, proposing a turnaround strategy for the Ummah. It takes its place with many other online and hard copy publications to strengthen the Islamic value system, to deepen Islamic ethos and create the need to re-awaken our thoughts about the Holy Quraan and the Sunna of our Holy Prophet Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. Our focus is rooted in the process of reawakening, transformation and change. Drawing on the collective wisdom of the Uklema, researchers and thinkers, we intend to initiate a new journey in unpacking the original lessons, story-lines and case studies.

 To refresh, to rejuvenate and the final destination of change, to be the catalyst for change is our sole objective and this should define the original interpretations, writings, articles and best practices.

 This is our first publication in its present format and on its journey of development, we will be engaging with you, the reader, to reaffirm the beauty of Islam and its joyous bounties.

 Write to us with your comments and suggestions so that becomes the collective will of the Ummah. We see no praise nor felicitations but a genuine attempt to provide something new and different in pursuit of Allah consciousness.

(End of the Devil’s programme)

There is a co-ordinated conspiracy of the West (U.S.A., UK and Europe) to destroy Islam. Their most powerful weapon for achieving their pernicious objective is the colonized brains of Muslims who have acquired atheistic doctrines and kufr ideas from their university professors and devils who are the engineers of the kufr interfaith movement. These colonized brains are prowling in the Ummah in all countries, sowing their kufr corruption in subtle and cunning ways.

One such stupid kufr attempt by the zindeeq/munaafiq Reverend Abraham Bham and his NNB jamiat cohorts, is the absolute rubbish kufr fabrication which they dub Fiqhul Aqalliyat (Fiqh of minorities) which in reality is Fiqhul Iblees or the Devil’s fiqh. This rubbish has already been exposed by us and others. Insha-Allah, further comment on this kufr ‘fiqh’ of the devil shall be forthcoming.

Another cog in the western plot to scuttle Islam is the aforementioned rubbish which the three members of Hizbush Shaitaan are promoting. The call for change and transformation is a cunning and a devilish way of saying that the current Shariah which was transmitted to the Ummah from Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah by way of authentic narration (Naql), is antique and has to be assigned to the museum. In terms of this kufr logic and idea, the need of the times is a new law to be acquired from a system of kufr interpretation of the Qur’aan and Hadith to conform to the demands of the homosexual-lesbian cult of the West.

For the edification of all members of Hizbush Shaitaan, they should understand that they will miserably fail to achieve the objective of the western plot. Shaitaan has harnessed all these rascal zindeeqs into his conspiracy. He has appointed them all as his agents and he has fanned them out in all countries to propagate the new religion of Shaitaan camouflaged with Islamic sounding terminology.

The three miscreants of Newcastle, acting under the instructions of Iblees, are cunningly attempting to displace the Shariah by means of satanic ‘transformation and change’. Let it be known and understood that nothing of Islam is in need of change and transformation. The very same Sunnah which Muslims have abandoned need to be promoted. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

 “He who clings to my Sunnah at a time of the corruption of my Ummah will receive the reward of a hundred martyrs.”

The very same Sunnah and Shariah which governed the lives of the Sahaabah exist today for Muslims to adopt. Islam has absolutely no room for change and transformation. Never will there be a renaissance in Islam. The curse of renaissance was peculiar to Christianity.

The ‘turnabout strategy’ of which the three Zindeeqs speak, is shaitaani kufr to mangle and mutilate this Deen which Allah Ta’ala had completed and perfected during the very age of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as is explicitly and emphatically stated in the Qur’aan Majeed. If there was scope and need for change and transformation and for a new strategy, then Allah Ta’ala would not have terminated Nubuwwat. The long Chain of Ambiya which commenced with the advent of Hadhrat Aadam (Alayhis salaam) would have continued. It would not have terminated with Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

The termination of Nubuwwat more than adequately testifies that there can never be change in this Shariah of Islam. Imperfect ideologies are in need of change and transformation, not the Divine Perfect Deen of Allah Azza Wa Jal.

The imperative need for the Ummah is to abandon all kufr cults and cultures – all kufr ideologies of the west – and to fully submit to the Shariah – that Shariah and Sunnah on which Allah Ta’ala has placed His Seal of Completion and Perfection.

The Zindeeqs have acquitted themselves with extreme foolishness by seeking to conceal their kufr with gross ambiguity in the hope of deceiving and confusing Muslims. For example, they stupidly disgorge their kufr idea with the following ambiguity:

“To refresh, to rejuvenate and the final destination of change; to be the catalyst for change is our sole objective and this should define the original interpretations, writings, articles and best practices.”

These moron Zindeeqs are labouring under the misconception of all others being morons such as them. They believe that everyone will be hoodwinked to swallow their kufr presented subtly, cunningly and deceptively. They are in fact the ‘catalyst’ for kufr. This is their objective. The ‘original interpretations’ are sacrosanct and divinely inspired. They cannot be subjected to change and re-interpretation. Any interpretation which is at variance with the interpretation of the illustrious Fuqaha of the Khairul Quroon era is mardood (rejected) and mal-oon (accursed).

For the likes of these zindeeqs and munaafiqs who masquerade as ‘scholars’, but who are scholars of Iblees, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

 “Among the people is he who disputes about (the Shariah) of Allah without any knowledge, and he follows every rebellious shaitaan.”

(Al-Hajj, Aayat 3)

A Mushrik had moronically asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) whether Allah Ta’ala was made of silver or gold. Despite Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ignoring this ludicrous stupidity, the mushrik persisted with his question. Allah Ta’ala dispatched a bolt of lightning which decapitated the mushrik.

Allah Ta’ala will ‘decapitate’ all these rascals and rubbishes who, at the behest of Iblees, have joined Hizbush Shaitaan in the conspiracy to scuttle Islam.

QURR’AA WHO SHAVE THEIR BEARDS?

I have some questions which I would like ask mufti sb and seek his assistance. These questions make me uncomfortable and it’s about the Egyptian qurra. I don’t attend their gatherings and neither do I listen to them. But what makes me feel uncomfortable is when I see the wise people, ulama and qurra attending these gatherings and honouring the qaari. I would request mufti sb if he can response to my questions and give a response to their statements with dalaa’il so that I know how to defend myself when I approach people who honour and love the qaaris. I myself have hatred for them. The questions are as follows:

What is the hukm of attending a gathering which is conducted by a qaari who shaves his beard?
I am not saying the qurraa who shaves their beard are on haqq, but looking at their karaamaat what ‘if’ they are awliyaa so will I be accountable if I condone them and not attend their gatherings? And does it mean I’m not respecting the quraan?
In At-targhib wat-tarheeb in the last volume a hadith is mentioned about the signs of qiyaamah and one of the signs mentioned is ” wa an ta’luwa aswaatul fasaqati fil masaajid” and many more ahadith so if we not going to make them mahmool on these qaaris with the mere excuse that they are forced to shave their beards so on who are we going to make these ahaadith mahmool on? Indirectly making the kalaam of Nabi (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam) go to a waste.
I therefore request mufti sb to reply to my questions with such dalaaill through which I can defend the sunnah, mujtahideen and islaam.

Answer

With due respect to the recitation of the Qaaris and their ikhlaas and sincerity we are commanded by the shari`ah not to honour an open sinner.

The buzurgaan-e-deen that may have shown some consideration for them, perhaps it was in consideration for the respect of the Qur’aan itself and not the person.

Further, their foresight and understanding is far greater than we can imagine. However, with all due respect to all the buzurgaan-e-deen and mashaayikh, we have a duty not to show special respect to a person who is sinning openly. Just as we will not appoint a Qari whose beard is shaved to call out Azaan or lead the Salaah or deliver the pre-Jumu’ah talk, similarly we are under obligation not to show them any additional respect so that the laymen and common person may not consider the beard to be an insignificant practice.

If this is taken lightly, then we are doing a great disservice to Islam by creating an impression to the common and lay person that the beard is not an aspect of Taqwa and not an emphasized thing in Deen upon which Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had even turned his Mubaarak face away.

The Awliyaa unanimously agree that afaal-e-awliyaa hujjat na baashad (the works of awliyaa and mashaayikh are not sharee proof.).

Rasulullah (sallallahu alahi wa sallam) has commanded us to adhere to the Sunnah and not the isolated actions of the Awliyaa, especially when they are not in conformity with the Sunnah. Further, a Wali is one who dos not break the Sunnah and doesn’t continue committing a sin.

A person who shaves his beards is perpetually in sin whether in Namaaz or out, whether sleeping or awake, whether in Hajj or in Madinah; he is perpetually in a state of sin. Such a person cannot be called a Wali according to the standards that have been laid in the books of aqaaid.
Refer to Sharh-ul-`Aqaaid.

If a supernatural has to take place at the hands of a such a person it will not be called a Karaamat. It can be called Muoonat or Isitdraaj.

Until this point we haven’t understood the issue of being forced to shave the beard, for we see many Egyptians that come out in Tableegh Jamaat who have shar`ee beards. If it was an obligation then how do these people manage to keep beards? If they are state Qaris and therefore they are required to shave, they can respectfully resign from their work in honour of the Sunnah and continue reciting the Qur’aan for the pleasure of Allah. The Qiraat does not have to be done for the state.

رقم5892 -عن ابن عمر عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال خالفوا المشركين وفروا اللحى وأحفوا الشوارب وكان ابن عمر إذا حج أو اعتمر قبض على لحيته فما فضل أخذه (بخاري)

( لا ) يكره … تطويل اللحية إذا كانت بقدر المسنون وهو القبضة … وأما الأخذ منها وهي دون ذلك كما يفعله بعض المغاربة ومخنثة الرجال فلم يبحه أحد وأخذ كلها فعل يهود الهند ومجوس الأعاجم (الدر المختار 2/417-418)

ودخلا على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وقد حلقا لحاهما وأعفيا شواربهما فكره النظر إليهما وقال ” ويلكما من أمركما بهذا ؟ ” قالا أمرنا ربنا – يعنيان كسرى – فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ” ولكن ربي أمرني باعفاء لحيتي وقص شاربي (البداية والنهاية 6/486)

TRANSPLANTING ORGANS IS HARAAM

Is the fatwa below correct because one of my friend’s mother needs a lung urgently. Please advise.

“Q. One of my Kidneys have failed and I require a Kidney transplant. My brother is willing to donate one of his Kidneys to me. Is it permissible for him to donate his Kidney to me and is it permissible for me to accept it?
A. It is permissible for a donor to donate his/her kidney and for the donee to accept the kidney to save his/her life based on the following conditions:
The donor’s life is not endangered by donating the kidney
The donor donates the kidney from his/her free will without any pressure
The donee’s sickness can only be cured through kidney transplantation
There is a high probability for the donee’s sickness to be cured through kidney transplantation

Therefore, it would be permissible for your brother to donate his kidney to you and for you to accept it based on the above conditions. (Fataawa Darul Uloom Zakariyya 6/723/ 725)”
Allah Ta’ala Knows Best. Mufti Ismaeel Bassa themufti.com
(End of the CORRUPT fatwa)

OUR COMMENT
The fatwa is absolutely corrupt and baatil. The use of human organs is absolutely HARAAM. Thus, ‘donation’ of one’s kidney or any part of the body is HARAAM. There is absolutely no Shar’i daleel for this permissibility disgorged by the Mufti who has grievously erred.
Maut comes at it’s appointed time. Nothing can advance Maut nor delay it. It arrives at its prescribed moment. Haraam medical treatment may not be resorted to for ‘saving life’. The idea of ‘saving life’ is a stupidity of the atheists. It is shockingly lamentable for muftis to entertain this idea of the atheists. Never can life be saved with haraam medical treatment nor with halaal medicine. However, the Shariah permits the utilization of halaal medicine just as it permits the utilization of halaal methods for earning one’s Rizq which like Maut is prescribed and fixed. Nothing will increase or decrease Rizq. It has been decreed and constitute an article of Taqdeer.
Here in this dunya we are obliged to adopt only what is HALAAL, and not conduct ourselves like the kuffaar who deny the Existence of the Creator. Organ donation and organ transplantation are HARAAM.

Salaat behind modern day Zanaadiqah

Assalamualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,

Muhtaram Hazrat Saheb,

I refer to Hazrat’s refutation of the group dubbed Difaa ul-Ulama-e-Soo. Hazrat stated, “According to the Ahlus Sunnah, Salaat behind every Birr and Faajir is valid notwithstanding his fisq and fujoor.”

A question came to mind in light of recent events.

Since the introduction of the covid protocols in the Masjids throughout the UK, I had stopped attending any Masjid which imposed the implementation of these satanic protocols.

As Hazrat has mentioned, Salaat in any of these Masjids which had been temporarily converted into temples, is not valid. The displacing of the Ahkaam of Allah with the Ahkaam of the very worst enemies of Allah is Sareeh Kufr which expels the willing perpetrator from the fold of Islam. Most of the Imams and “Ulama” leading the Jamaats in the Masjids in the UK actually believed that the satanic Ahkaam of the atheists are superior to Islamic Ahkaam and that such displacement was Waajib. There can thus be absolutely no doubt that such Imams and Molvis became Murtaddeen.

Virtually all the modernists such as the Maududis, and also other deviate groups such as the Barelwis and the Salafis began to implement these Kufr protocols even before the government began imposing them. In fact, many Masjids continued to impose these protocols even after the government decided they were no longer Fard.

Regarding those who regard themselves to be Deobandi, there appeared to be some difference of opinion amongst them. Some, like the modernists, implemented these protocols of their own accord, independent of the government imposition, whilst others did so only after and due to the government imposition.

I managed to locate a Masjid in another town which had not adopted any of these Kufr protocols throughout the lockdowns, and Allah Ta’ala enabled me to do Hijrah and move to a flat not too far away from that particular Masjid. This was one of only two Masjids which I was aware of in the entire country which had not adopted the protocols of Kufr.

Around 6 months ago, the government decided that these protocols are no longer necessary. Gradually, all the Masjids began to stop implementing these protocols.

However, since none of the Murtad Imams of these Masjids which had been converted temporarily into temples, had made Tawbah and renewed their Imaan publically, as far as I could determine, they remain Murtaddeen. It is clear, in most cases, that these Imams actually believe that the terrible crime they had perpetrated was something truly commendable.

Most times I have no need to go to any of these Masjids where the Jamaat is led by a Zindeeq. However, once in while, there is no Masjid near enough for me to reach the Jamaat other than these Masjids where a Zindeeq is conducting “Salaat”. Even though these Masjids have stopped implementing the satanic protocols, I have been unable to bring myself to pray behind such Imams whom I believe to be Murtaddeen. I feel it would be a mockery of the Deen. Hence, on such occasions, I feel compelled to pray alone.

However, the statement cited above by Hazrat has brought a question to my mind.

Am I correct in assuming that the Faajir referred to applies exclusively to a Faajir with correct Aqeedah, or a man of Bid’ah whose Bid’ah has not reached the level of Kufr?

While there seems to be some ikhtilaaf on whether or not Salaat should be prayed behind the man of Bid’ah whose Bid’ah is not Kufr (most opining on its validity), there appears to be complete unanimity that Salaat is invalid behind one whose Bid’ah is Kufr. The Fuqaha give the example of Jahmiyyah, Mushabbihah, Raafidhis, and those who believe in Khalq-e-Qur’aan. The recent crimes of Sareeh Kufr perpetrated by the modern day Zanaadiqah appear to be at least as vile as those of the aforementioned ancient sects, if not far worse.

I request Hazrat’s Duas,
Was-salaam,

ASSALAMU ALAIKUM
7 Rabiul Awwal 1444 – 4 October 2022

Respected Brother,

Your e-mail refers.

Yes, the faasiq-faajir refers to one with correct Aqeedah. It does not refer to such a faasiq-faajir who subscribes to beliefs of kufr.

The state of the Ummah is absolutely deplorable. If we have to resort to takfeer, then logically almost the entire Ummah of this era will have to be branded kaafir. This is indeed most difficult for us. We therefore confine ourselves to pointing out what is kufr, without generally resorting to takfeer unless there is a real need.

My advice is that when you are in a situation where no other Musjid is available, then without making enquiries about the Imaam and his beliefs, simply join the jamaat. If you then feel agitated, simply repeat your Salaat alone.

May Allah Ta’ala always guide and protect you and the family.

Was-salaam

SALAAT AND SAUM IN ‘ABNORMAL’ TIME ZONES

SALAAT AND SAUM IN ‘ABNORMAL’ TIME ZONES

In some regions in proximity to the North Pole, e.g. Norway, the times in relation to the rest of the world are abnormal. Some days after sunset and even before disappearance of shufuq abyadh (the whitish glow in the western horizon after the redish glow), the sun rises. Thus, the time of Isha does not set in. In some regions the sun remains above the horizon for six months, and in some places it is night for six months.

       The classical Fuqaha had discussed and elaborated on this issue. According to one group of Fuqaha, Isha and all other Salaat remain obligatory and have to be performed in view of the command of five Fardh Salaat daily, which is substantiated by the Sunnah.

       The Sunnah has not excluded any land from this obligation. These Fuqaha base their ruling on the Hadith which says that during the era of Dajjal there will be a day the equivalent of one year. It will be a long day. The Sahaabah queried the performance of Salaat on that day. Will only five Salat be performed in that marathon day of a year? Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) explained that the times of Salaat will be calculated. That is: Five Salaat for every 24 hours.

       According to the other Fuqaha, the five Salaat are conditional with their five specific times. If the incidence of a specific Salaat time does not develop in a region, then that particular Salaat is waived. They present the analogy of Wudhu which has Four Fardh acts according to the Hanafi Math-hab. If both feet have been amputated, the fardh of washing the feet falls away. Similarly, the Fardh Salaat will be waived if its time does not develop in many regions.

       Regarding the Hadith pertaining to the era of Dajjaal, these Fuqaha are of the opinion that since it is in conflict with Qiyaas (Analogical Reason), it may not be presented as a basis for a ruling. In terms of the Usool of Fiqh, the Khilaaf-e-Qiyaas narration shall be confined to its original purpose and not be used as a basis for extrapolation for extending the ruling to another issue.

       Shaikh Akbar Muhayyuddeen Ibn Arabi (rahmatullah alayh) has elucidated this issue in his Futuhaat.  According to him, the event of the long day during the era of Dajjaal will in reality not be one year literally. The times of Salaat will be normal. However, due to the deception of Dajjaal people will not observe the movement of the sun, sunrise and sunset. The people will perceive this day to be as long as a year.

Pakistan’s Transgender Bill: How Liberalism Is Being Forced Onto Muslim Society

Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated: “The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) cursed the women who imitate men and the men who imitate women.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi, 2784)

Pakistan is one of the Muslim countries that is currently undergoing the process of modernization. Despite this, Pakistani Muslims have proven to be very firm in their opposition to ideological attacks by shady and heavily funded liberal organizations. So much so in fact, that these degenerate forces have had to resort to extremely underhanded tactics in order to infiltrate our community.

And it is the recent controversy surrounding the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act in Pakistan that has been most effective in exposing these tactics.

There’s been a lot of confusion regarding this topic, with a number of people being completely unaware about what exactly is going on. In fact, all of this confusion has been generated by the very same shady groups which control mainstream media. They spread confusion with the express reason of keeping us distracted while they further their goals.

Since this is the case, let us first examine what the actual situation is:

The Senate will take up the Intersex Persons (Protection of Rights) (Amendment) Bill 2022, which aims to make changes in the existing Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act 2018, on Monday (September 26).

The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act [Download PDF] was drafted and passed four years ago, back in 2018. The bill included changes that are diametrically opposed to the teachings and values of Islam, in effect threatening to actually legalize homosexuality within the country (this will be discussed in more detail shortly). The bill was drafted by mysterious ‘international experts’ and was passed quite hastily by the National Assembly and Senate.

Curiously enough, not a single mainstream political party representative at the time had stood in opposition to this bill.

Most of the general public wasn’t even aware of any of this. That is, until this year when Islamic groups such as Jamat-e-Islami pointed out how dangerous it is. It had been protested against ever since its inception. However, recently Senator Mushtaq Ahmed of Jamat-e-Islami has formally filed for necessary amendments to this bill in order to keep it in line with Islam, and he even challenged it in the Federal Shariat Court (FSC). These amendments are known as the Intersex Persons (Protection of Rights) (Amendment) Bill 2022 and are yet to legally be passed into law. It is these proposed amendments that have SJWs and trans-activists screeching and seething in the streets of Pakistan.

Several Muslim politicians are now condemning this bill, stating that they had previously been unaware of its implications. One such individual is Senator Mohsin Aziz, a representative for PTI:

During the Senate session today, Senator Mohsin Aziz voiced his reservations with the legislation, saying he was now regretting not opposing the bill when it was introduced and approved in 2018.

“There is a difference between transgender and intersex … we should beg pardon from Allah,” the senator said, adding that transgender persons are not eunuchs (khawaja sira).

Aziz said the amendment should be made to the law “as soon as possible”, warning “the more the delay, the greater the wrath of Allah”.

Transgender vs. Intersex

In order to introduce filth into a society that will not tolerate it (such as Muslims), liberal groups employ the use of ambiguity. They choose to take the path most shrouded in ignorance and confusion, and they use this to gradually manipulate societies into becoming more degenerate and godless.

In this specific case, they took advantage of the ambiguity surrounding the terms transgender and intersex. Several terms are used in Urdu to describe people with ambiguous sexual characteristics, such as Khunsa, Mukhannas, and Khwaja Sira. The latter (Khwaja Sira) was used during the Mughal era to denote castrated males (eunuchs) who would serve as guards. Today however, in Pakistan, it is used interchangeably to describe intersex and transgender people that are part of a mafia of beggars and prostitutes. It is this group that primarily makes up the body of trans/intersex people within the country. They can be witnessed in the streets of modern cities (such as Islamabad, Lahore, and Karachi) where such Fahishah is relatively more common (albeit still far less common than anything observed in Western countries).

Now, you may have noticed my classing of ‘intersex’ and ‘transgender’ as being part of the same group, and this is precisely where the pre-existing problem lies.

Intersex people are those who are born with ambiguous sexual genitals and characteristics, but can still be classified as being one specific gender. Their sex is officially assigned very early on depending on a number of factors.

Transgender people, however, are those who imitate the opposite sex, either due to mental illness or for money (through begging and prostitution mafias). This latter group is unfortunately quite rampant within Pakistan, and the problem is that the general public makes very little distinction between intersex and transgender.

If you download the PDF linked above, you can see that in Section 2 (n) of the original bill, a ‘Transgender Person’ has been defined as:

“Transgender Person” is a person who is :-

(i) Intersex (Khunsa) with mixture of male and female genital features or congenital ambiguities, or

(ii) Eunuch assigned male at birth, but undergoes genital excision or castration; or

(iii) a Transgender Man, Transgender Woman, Khawaja sira or any person whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from the social norms and cultural expectations based on the sex they were assigned at the time of their birth.

As you can see, these liberal powers have deviously placed intersex and transgender people, interchangeably, under the same umbrella. This is in order to manipulate sympathy towards those who were created by Allah in a certain way and twist it into sympathy for degenerates who imitate the opposite sex. And what does this accomplish?

Section 3 of the act states:

(1) A transgender person shall have a right to be recognized as per his or her self-perceived gender identity, as such, in accordance with the provisions of this Act.

(2) A person recognized as transgender under sub-section (1) shall have a right to get himself or herself registered as per self-perceived gender identity with all government departments including, but not limited to NADRA.

Thus, men and women can legally become recognized as being from the opposite gender!

NADRA (National Database and Registration Authority) is the branch of the Ministry of Interior which makes and provides people with their CNICs (Computerized National Identity Cards). In addition to ID cards, it goes on to also include the person’s driving license and even passport as subject to change. What this means is that if a man were to decide he wants to change his gender to female, he would legally have to be treated as a woman. And because of this, ‘she’ can now legally marry a man and not be considered a homosexual. And thus homosexuality becomes ‘legal’ in a Muslim country.

Homosexuality is explicitly illegal in Pakistan by law. Section 377 of the PPC (Pakistan Penal Code) states:

Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than two years nor more than ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.

Furthermore, Article 277 of the Pakistan Constitution states that:

1) All existing laws shall be brought in conformity with the Injunctions of Islam as laid down in the Holy Quran and Sunnah, in this Part referred to as the Injunctions of Islam, and no law shall be enacted which is repugnant to such injunctions.

It’s extremely strange that, despite these clear pre-existing laws which are diametrically opposed to it, the Transgender Act was still passed.

But that’s not all. It doesn’t simply stop at legalizing homosexuality. The Transgender Act goes on to state, under Section 4, that all forms of discrimination against transgenders is prohibited, and they must not face any form of ‘denial’ when it comes to employment, educational institutions, healthcare services, transport, etc. And then, under Section 5, it goes on to prohibit all forms of harassment as well. It seems like these trans people might now actually have more rights than regular citizens.

While Section 3 legalizes homosexuality, Section 4 and 5 serve to make the situation significantly worse. Since they can’t be refused access to certain places based on their ‘self-perceived gender,’ they can enter places which are meant exclusively for the opposite gender. Due to this, there was a truly bizarre incident which occurred on August 23, 2020. A transwoman (biological man) applied for the job of a lecturer at an academic institution…under the female category. This meant that he would be in the midst of hundreds of women, both teachers and young students—inappropriately interacting with them; staring at them; and doing God knows what else, on a daily basis. These Muslim women would be made to bear this, day in, day out. Naturally, his application was rejected, but this trans used the Transgender Act to take the matter all the way to the Lahore High Court, where it came to be known as FAIZ ULLAH VS. P.P.S.C AND ORS, and unfortunately the following decision was made:

The counsels appearing for the respondents told the Court that they were ready to concede and allow the Petitioner to take part in the recruitment process under the Lecturer (Female) category. On this basis, the Court set aside the order that rejected the Petitioner’s application and held that she will be allowed to participate in the recruitment process.

I mean, what could they do? Dispute the law in court? Think about just how bad it could get if this act was utilized by degenerates to the full extent possible. Men would be able to enter female prayer areas, perform Wudu next to them, even go to female doctors and request check-ups.

What if a male convict claimed to be a transgender in order to be placed into a female prison? And by the way, this is something that has already occurred in the West.

Liberal and anti-Islamic outlets and politicians have rejected outright the notion that this act can be used as a loophole to legalize homosexuality:

Minister for Law Azam Nazeer Tarar on Thursday rejected criticism over the Transgender Persons (Protection of Right) Act, saying that “some friends” had created a misconception that the law had opened doors for homosexuality and was repugnant to Islamic injunctions.

But the sad reality is that this act has been already been utilized for this very reason, and the undeniable proof of this exists in the form of a legal homosexual marriage that took place in Taxila, Pakistan not too long ago. A female teacher named Asma Bibi groomed one of her students, Neha Ali, then legally switched her own gender to male and changed her name to Akash Ali on her CNIC, thus allowing her to ‘legally’ marry this student.

This lesbian marriage started trending on social media, upon which the father filed against it in Rawalpindi High Court. Subsequently, Akash Ali legally reverted to being female and disappeared.

It is shocking to even consider how this incident didn’t occur in a liberal country, but one where the majority of Muslims still strive to uphold Islamic and traditional values.

And this brings me to the silver lining. I was extremely happy to see the response of Muslims towards this degenerate law, both inside and outside Pakistan, both online and offline. Alhamdulillah, the Muslim youth especially took to defending Islam and condemning this Transgender Act very strongly. So, not only did this act expose how liberals use ambiguity to attack Islamic values, but it also brought to the fore the frustration within young Muslims against our enemies. The line between truth and falsehood has become vividly clear. The minority of Muslims in Pakistan who have been indoctrinated into adopting liberal secular values are just that: a minority, albeit a very vocal one and one that utilizes the online space very aggressively to further their ideologies.

And one of those online spaces is YouTube. Liberal Pakistani Youtubers have made it their mission to make liberalism look like the only saving grace for the ‘oppressive’ and ‘backwards’ Muslim lifestyle. They paint this picture of Islam being the reason behind all the problems that, in actuality, modernization has brought about. And of course they’re not brave enough to say it outright, otherwise Muslims would cancel them in a heartbeat. They simply insinuate it, deceptively sugarcoating their words. One of these Youtubers is Mooroo, who has a million subscribers at the time of this article being written. And, related to the subject of this article, he even had a trans on his podcast. But again, the video’s comment section reveals that Muslims are becoming more and more aware of these ideological attacks, and they won’t be tricked into accepting such values. Many of the comments rightfully call out the filth and degeneracy in the video. This often happens, where liberal groups strongly underestimate just how much degeneracy they can smuggle into Muslim societies without suffering severe backlash.

But when it comes to the Transgender Act, it simply boggles the mind as to how a Muslim government can cater and provide protection to a group of people that have been expressly cursed by our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ himself. Muslims should continue speaking against it and protesting. I would even go as far as to say we should vocalize our concerns even more aggressively now and not allow a single iota of ground to be further lost, lest our society further sinks to new lows.

May Allah protect us from such a fate and grant us victory over our manifest enemies. Amin.

Rabi’ul Awwal has arrived, again…

Allah Ta’ala declares, “There certainly is an example in Allah’s Messenger for he who fears Allah and the last day and remembers Allah abundantly” (Surah Al-Ahzab, verse: 21)
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:
“He who holds firm to my Sunnah when corruption is rampant in my Ummah will attain the reward of a hundred martyrs.”
(Al-Bayhaqi fi-Zuhd; “hasan” –sound- according to Hafiz ibn Hajar; see: Hidayatur Ruwat, Hadith: 174)
Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) affectionately advised him:
“Whoever cherishes my sunnah, indeed cherishes me and whoever loves me will be with me in Jannah.”
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2678. Classified as “hasan” –sound- by Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah)
 
Sentimental events
The above and other such verses and Hadiths are frequently heard and recited during the month of Rabi’ul-Awwal, the month in which the birth and demise of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) occurred.
Huge gatherings are held, sentiments are elevated and hearts become soft upon hearing the details of these events. Resolutions of adhering to the Sunnah are made, and love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is increased.
As Muslims, we believe that every Sunnah of our beloved Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is filled with nur (divine light) and blessing of Allah Ta’ala. Therefore, the illustrious Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) and Muhaddithun (Scholars of Hadith) took great pains in preserving the noble Hadiths and Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam). Through their sacrifices Allah Ta’ala has facilitated a huge amount of literature in which the sacred Hadith is preserved up to this day so that it can be adopted even by the Ummati (follower) of the 15th century of Islam.
But alas! How pitiful is the condition of that “lover” of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) who resolved to adopt more Sunnahs of his beloved the previous year, but failed to do so thus far?
One who discards the Sunnah is warned severely by Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) with the words:
 “I curse him, Allah curses him and so does every Prophet of Allah”
(Mustadrak Hakim, vol.1 pg.36; Hidayatur Ruwat, Hadith: 105. Considered “sahih”- authentic- by Imam Hakim rahimahullah)
This clearly highlights the cause of most of the social mishaps prevalent in the Muslim community today.
How can the blessing and mercy of Allah be found in that home whose inhabitants abandon the Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)?
Rabi’ul-Awwal has dawned once again, this time for approximately the 1496th time (2022) since the birth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam). During this long period, there were many who took such resolutions and stuck by them thereby attaining the virtues promised by Allah and his Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) as well as the success of both the worlds.
There is no certainty as to how many more Rabi’ul-Awwals we will witness. Hence let not the procrastination of Shaytan dominate us. Lets make an effort and also seek the assistance of Allah sincerely for the strength to adopt every Sunnah of our beloved Master (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) before it is too late.
 
Comprehensiveness of the Sunnah
The Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is not restricted to acts or places of worship only. Instead, it is comprehensive and covers all aspects and situations of life such as ones social and moral conduct, business dealings, one’s dressing etc. It also applies to all places whether the Masjid, business place, the home or even while one is on journey. In every situation, one should draw guidance from the lifestyle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) thereby turning habits into acts of worship.
 
Not seasonal
The study of the Sirah (lifestyle of Nabi -sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam-) is not only for Rabi’ul Awwal, rather it should be done throughout the year.
Every Muslim should endeavour to study the complete Sirah at least once in his or her lifetime under the guidance of a qualified ‘alim (scholar)
