MACKOOJI’S KUFR ON CONTAGION

DEVIATE MACKOOJI’S KUFR ON CONTAGION – OUTRIGHT REJECTION OF RASULULLAH’S EXPLICIT DECLARATION

“LAA ADWA” – “THERE IS NO CONTAGION IN DISEASE”

(Rasulullah- Sallallahu alayhi wasallam)

Some miscreant, Mackoojee, parading as a ‘mufti’, in a flapdoodle article consisting of some flaccid arguments to bolster his baatil, kufr opinion of ‘validity’ of contagion, blatantly and stupidly misinterpreting Qur’aanic Verses and Ahaadith, says:

“PROOF FROM THE QUR-AAN AND HADITHS OF CONTAGIOUS SICKNESSES”

Pandemic or not, wherever your death has been decreed, you will taste death. The Qur-aan talks of a nation that fled an epidemic and left their native city fearing a plague death.”

Then the moron presents the Qur’aanic Aayat:

“Have you not seen those who left their homes, thousands in number, to escape death? So Allah told them: “Be dead”. Then He raised them alive…. (Baqarah:243)

According to the tafseer on the ayah, Allah Ta’ala sent a very severe punishment to that nation that He killed them all. All died. Then Allah Ta’ala revived them again through their prophet’s dua’s.”

Just what is the deviate trying to prove with this Aayat? The Aayat knocks out the bottom from his kufr contagion view. Allah Ta’ala had slain the entire populace of tens of thousands because they believed in contagion as the Mulhid Iblees Mackooji believes and propagates to promote the wares of Bill Gates, Pharma & Iblees. This miscreant’s brains are convoluted with kufr, hence he stupidly proffers this very Aayat which denounces and proscribes the shirki/kufr idea of contagion.

The thousands believing in contagion had fled from their town/city and went into self-imposed quarantine to, fleeing from Maut which they believed they could thwart by escaping the hallucinated ‘contagion’ of the plague which had ravaged their town. Despite Mackooji conceding that the flight of the populace from the plague was such a sin which justified “a very severe punishment”, the jaahil presents this Qur’aanic Aayat to substantiate the kufr of the atheists and to peddle the wares of Bill Gates, Pharma & Iblees. There is absolutely not the slightest vestige of proof in this Qur’aanic Aayat for the hallucinated validity of contagion.

Excreting another LIE, the Mulhid, Mackooji says:

“According to a tafseer, Samiriyi the person who misled Bani Israeel with the calf statue in the absence of Musa a.s. got the curse of a contagious sickness that he was condemned to stay away from people and continue saying: “No touching please.”

The condition which had settled on Saamiri was a Curse which had a peculiar effect which may not be interpreted as Adwaa (there is contagion) in negation of the explicit ‘Laa adwa’ declaration of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). A command of our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) on which is based a Shar’i mas’alah may not be abrogated with a peculiar occurrence applicable to a specific person thousands of years prior to the Islam taught by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). On the contrary, the Qur’aan abrogated even the Taurah, Injeel and all previous Shariats. It is the height of jahaalat and kufr to attempt abrogation of the directives of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) with episodes which had transpired thousands of years ago. The episode of Saamiri mentioned in the Qur’aan Majeed has absolutely no relevance to contagion. Saamiri’s condition was a lifelong punishment imposed on him for his treacherous idol-making. His condition was peculiar and exceptional.

Citing another Hadith, Mackooji translates: “The sickly contagious should not be brought close to the healthy.” Either he is too stupid or he is guilty of chicanery for not translating “Laa adwaa”, mentioned in the very same Hadith. Firstly, there is no mention in the quoted Hadith about “sickly contagious” as the miscreant mentions. While the word ‘sick/sickly’ is mentioned, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) did not say “sickly contagious”. This is a lie and a kufr fabrication attributed by Mackooji to our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). On the contrary, negating contagion, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) states in the very same Hadith: “Laa adwaa”. After negating contagion, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) mentions the ‘sick’.

Secondly, the ‘sick’ mentioned in this narration cited by the jaahil fake mufti, refers to sick camels, not to human beings. The advice of not bringing the sick camel in touch with healthy camels, was due to the embedded kufr contagion belief which lingered on in the hearts of people since the era of jaahiliyyah, and to this day this kufr idea persists. In fact Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had said that this idea will continue lingering in the hearts of the people, hence he explicitly and emphatically refuted it by saying: “Laa adwaa’.

It is kufr to present a narration to refute the explicit declaration of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). An interpretation should be found to reconcile the apparent contradiction, or a suitable meaning should be ascribed to it, and in the event of inability to reconcile, it should be set aside. But it may not be presented to set aside, refute and abrogate what Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had explicitly ordered.

In another flaccid bid to prove existence of contagion, Mackooji presents a Hadith which he translates:

“Reported in Muslim that a leprous man was between the Thaqeef group of people (that came to Madina). So Rasulullah Swalallahhou Alaihi Wasallam sent to inform him that: “We have already taken his oath of allegiance from far and hence he should step back.”

Then, the miscreant jaahil presenting his kufr interpretation of this nafration, says:

“Allegiance is done normally hand with hand. But Rasouloullah (Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam showed us to keep distance from contagious disease.”

This is a blatant lie ascribed to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) by the jaahil, mulhid, bogus mufti. There is absolutely no reference to “keeping distance” from the sick. Whatever the reason was for instructing the leper to return, it never was maintenance of devil’s distance as these munaafiqeen of our day are observing at the behest of the atheists.

The jaahil fails to understand that the leper was not ordered to separate himself from the delegation in which he was. The other members of the group were not ordered to distance themselves from the leper. The leper was not ordered to go into quarantine, The people of Thaqeef were not ordered to adopt devil’s distance from the leper. The leper was not prevented from the Musjid. The leper was not isolated in any way whatsoever. He was only instructed to return. If the reason was to adopt devil’s distance, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) would have ordered this. He would not have contented himself with only the return of the leper. This leper freely mingled with society. He was not isolated in any way. There is no proof whatsoever in this Hadith for the contagion theory which the mushrikeen and atheists propagate and which the munaafiqeen have lapped up.

Committing more fraud, Mackooji cites the Arabic text of a Hadith, but deceptively and dishonestly translates only a portion which in his necrotized mind he believes supports the contagion theory of the atheists. Thus he says:

“Hazrat Abu Hureirah r.a. said Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said:

“….run away from a leprous just like you run from a lion.”

Then adding his stupid commentary, he says:

“Normally, it is sunnah to visit a sick and make du’as for him. But here we are prescribed by medical sunnah to stay away from contagious diseases. Hence all healthy precautions prescribed by our health authorities is under this sunnah protocol of protecting oneself from contagious diseases.”

We do not know for how many dollars acquired from the atheist authorities has this miserable jaahil mufti sold his Imaan. He very stupidly and cunningly omits in his translation. This miscreant as well as all other munaafiqeen are misinterpreting Qur’aanic Aayaat and Ahaadith, not for reconciling apparent contradictions as is the practice of the true Ulama. The objective of these mkscreants is to use and misuse the Ahaadith to peddle and promote the kufr theories of the atheists. They have bartered away their Imaan for dollars. They have been appointed as agents of Iblees to promote the covid satanism of Bill Gates, Pharma & Iblees.

The aforementioned Hadith in which the miserable jaahil has committed chicanery begins off with the explicit negation of contagion. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Laa adwaa (there is no contagion), no tiyarah, no haammah and no safar.” After making this explicit declaration, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) added the portion of fleeing from the leper. Whatever the reason for fleeing from the leper may be, it was never because of contagion because Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) refuted contagion before making mention of the leper. Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made it abundantly clear that there is “no contagion”. He preceded the leper portion with negation of contagion thereby clarifying that fleeing from a leper is not on account of contagion. Whatever the reason may be, it is not contagion, hence the negation stated explicitly by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

If the disease was contagious, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) would not have first negated contagion. But, we see that before mentioning about the leper, our Nabi corrected the shirki belief of contagion which was embedded in the minds of the people. The manner of the expression of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) means: Flee from the leper. However, leprosy is not contagious. This is the clear purport of “Laa adwaa” mentioned before proffering the advice of fleeing from a leper, and this portion of the Hadith, that is, “Laa adwaa” has been concealed by the Mackooji chap in a futile attempt to hoodwink ignoramuses.

Tiyara refers to bad omens. Haammah are owls bringing bad luck in terms of the shirki belief of the Mushrikeen. Safar is the belief that misfortune befalls people during the month of Safar. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) refuted all three beliefs of shirk in the same breath, in one statement.

Further negating the contagion rubbish promoted by the Mackooji jaahil, is the fact that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah during the plague did not flee from infected persons. On the contrary, they all huddled together in the Musjid. It is indeed an act of egregious perfidy to utilize the Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to refute him and to negate the explicit Laa adwaa declaration made by our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

The logical conclusion of negating contagion, that is, interpreting Laa adwaa to mean adwaa, is to also confirm the validity tiyarah, haammah and safar just as the rubbishes confirm validity for contagion despite the express negation stated by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

The rationale underlying the advice to flee from the leper was because of the embedded belief of contagion in the minds of the people, especially the simple village folk and Bedouins. It was a belief so ingrained that it could not be easily eradicated from fickle minds. Precisely for this reason Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Four things of Jaahiliyyah will remain in my Ummah. (1) People will not abstain from taunting on the basis of lineage (i.e.racialism). (2) Wailing (on the occasion of someone’s death). (3) Rain is caused by the moon. (4) The belief of contagion.”

Today even these moron molvis, paper muftis, sheikhs and the glut of munaafiqeen believe in the very same shirki concept of contagion which Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had refuted more than fourteen centuries ago. The atheists have perpetuated this belief of shirk, and at their behest the jaahil mufti is promoting the shirki belief.

Whilst Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) negated contagion, the munaafiqeen extravasate the very opposite by refuting Rasulullah’s explicit negation of contagion. And, this they do to bootlick the atheists for the dollars. Now why did the jaahil Mackooji conceal the ‘Laa adwaa’ statement which preceded the leper issue? His hidden kufr agenda is quite conspicuous.

Furthermore, despite the advice to flee from the leper, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), himself did not flee. On the contrary, he ate with a leper from the same bowl, saying: Have Tawakkul! This was Rasulullah’s practical refutation of the shirki belief of contagion. Both verbally and practically, by word and deed, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) negated contagion.

Regarding the Hadith which prohibits people from going to a region affected by a plague, the jaahil Mackooji flaunting his kufr-coated jahaalat comments:

“The sunnah teach us to visit the sick. But in these contagious cases, we are instructed to take medical precautions of distancing and segregating.”

Only brains necrotized by kufr are capable of venturing such rubbish understanding of the Hadith. While outsiders are prohibited from entering the epidemic zone, the thousands within the plague-afflicted locality are not ordered to adopt the stupid, ludicrous, satanic ‘medical precautions of distancing and segregating’. Those within the precincts of the plague-ravaged area who are the ones most at ‘risk’ of contracting the disease according to the theory of the baboonist atheists who happen to be the handlers of Mackooji and others of his ilk, are not segregated. The Hadith does not prescribe any devil’s distancing or devil’s segregating for them. No protocols have been prescribed for them by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alahyhi wasallam). The only protocols which Muslims, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah knew during a plague was to rush to the Musjid and increase Istighfaar and Dua.

If contagion was a reality, most certainly, Allah Ta’ala would have revealed detailed protocol guidance to adopt as precautions against the hallucinated contagion. The theory of contagion and its meaning are not new. This was known to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). He made specific reference to it, negating and refuting it. Now whoever promotes the opposite in refutation of the explicit Laa adwaa declaration of our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), eliminates his Imaan.

MURTADS IN THE TEMPLE

MURTADS IN THE TEMPLE OF SHIRK

QUESTION

Some Muslim men and females went to a Hindu temple to visit a Hindu priest. The priest was seated on his stage apparently engaging in some prayer/ritual while the Muslims were standing in attendance with their hands folded in front of them. What does the Shariah say in this regard? What is the status of these Muslims?

ANSWER

The Muslims described in the question have become MURTADDS. They have lost their Imaan. If they wish to be Muslims and return to the fold of Islam, they should repent, renew the Kalimah and also their marriages.

In this era in close proximity to Qiyaamah, Muslims are increasingly bartering away their Imaan, becoming murtad, for the miserable carrion of worldly and nafsaani gains and objectives. We are in that era about which Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that a person will be a Mu’min in the morning and by the evening he will become a kaafir. Some will be Mu’min at night while becoming kaafir in the morning. Their state will hover and vacillate wildly between the extremes of Imaan and Kufr.

Regarding this era, Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Amr (Radhiyallahu anhu) narrating a Hadith, said:

“A time will dawn when the people will gather in their Musaajid and perform Salaat whilst not a single one will be a Mu’min.”

May Allah Ta’ala keep our Imaan intact until the very last breath of life.

ARE SECULAR QUALIFIED DOCTORS CONSIDERED AS ISLAMIC HEALERS?

  • A response to a misleading Hadith interpretation going around on social media.
  • The addition of the words in brackets “a doctor/medical practitioner” is not part of the original Hadith… it’s just an assumption based on someone’s interpretation.

Below is the Hadith going around with the misleading addition:

Amr bin Shoaib narrates from his father, who narrates from his grandfather, that Nabee صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

Whoever gives medical treatment and he is not known to be [a doctor/medical practitioner] then he is liable.

(Sunan Nasai; Al Mujtaba, Hadith: 4830, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3466, Sunan Daraqutni, Hadith: 4497)

The addition of the words in brackets “a doctor/medical practitioner” gives unsuspecting readers the assumption that secular indoctrinated doctors and medical practitioners are considered as the people that the Hadith are referring to. This is not true as there are many reasons why graduates of secular medical schools should not be considered as people of knowledge when it comes to health matters. Below are just some of the reasons:

  • Secular medical schools promotes the beliefs of the secular state which contradicts many Islamic beliefs.
  • Health effects of spiritual problems (evil eye, black magic and jinns) are not taught to students in medical schools but are mislabeled and passed off as other health conditions….as per the Hadith doctors will be held liable for this misdiagnoses.
  • Students at secular medical schools are not taught about how to use natural cures from the Quran and Sunnah to treat patients….as per the Hadith doctors will be held liable for been ignorant of this.
  • Students at secular medical schools are not taught that sins can also be a cause of sickness….science cannot explain all causes of sickness as it has limitations.
  • Students at secular medical schools are not taught about other Islamic treatments like repentance, sadaqah, supplication and duas…..this explains their incorrect belief on incurable diseases, which Islam teaches us can be cured using divine interventions…..as per the Hadith doctors will be held liable for this ignorance.
  • Students at secular medical schools are taught the incorrect beliefs on fever, sneezing, detox symptoms, sickness and contagious diseases….as per the Hadith doctors will be held liable for this misinformation that they promote to their patients.
  • students at secular medical schools are brainwashed into taking scientific evidence over Islamic evidence and mislead the muslim ummah in the process by propagating fake promoted science when real science(which is censored) are in line with Islamic beliefs.
  • Students at secular medical schools are brainwashed into believing that there are no better/safer alternative treatments than the allopathic treatments that they are indoctrinated into believing…. according to the Hadith they will be held liable for the harmful effects that these allopathic treatments cause.
  • Why didn’t they include the words like Hakeems, Raaqis, Aamils and Hijamah therapists in brackets? It’s clear that secular practitioners are been promoted over Islamic practitioners to indoctrinate unsuspecting Muslims into secularism by using secular titles in brackets.

-The title of doctor itself is an academic title and not an Islamic title…doctor is actually a Latin word and later a French one, meaning anyone who’s a teacher – usually of law, theology, philosophy, as well as medicine for a learned profession. So the really precise way to call for healing of sickness would be to ask for a practitioner that heals patients according to Islamic standards.

  • Based on the above secular trained medical practitioners are untrained, unqualified and unfit to practice medicine and healing according to Islamic standards. Secular indoctrinated Muslim health practitioners need to acknowledge the deficiency in knowledge that they are operating with and should make sincere attempts to get a real education according to Islamic standards as they will be held liable for whatever harm that they are causing to their unsuspecting patients. If an unqualified person physically treats a patient or operates on him and this leads to his death, then he will be held liable to pay the blood money. This is aside from him being liable in the court of Allah!

This is also a good response to ignorant people who like to use the words “ARE YOU A DOCTOR?” when you question or challenge the views and beliefs of doctors on health matters. Just because the secularists promotes the beliefs of doctors and scientists using various tools of propaganda it does not mean that they are considered as Islamic healers according to Islamic standards. Many doctors have good intentions of helping patients but they have been given a license by the secularists to harm people due to their indoctrination in unislamic beliefs.

It is advisable for Muslims to promote legitimate Islamic healers instead of promoting doctors. Be cautious of getting information on health matters from pro secular sources like mainstream media, the secular state, the WHO, Muslim doctors and the misguided scholars who align themselves with those who promote secular beliefs over Islamic beliefs. Don’t expect secularists to promote Islamic beliefs on their secular platforms as those platforms are used to promote their beliefs instead. Muslims need to make an effort to get their health information from alternative sources if they want to improve their health.

Another serious issue is that nowadays Muslim radio stations, Muslim newspapers and Muslim television programs are giving secular indoctrinated Muslim health practitioners a platform to promote their unislamic beliefs on the unsuspecting Muslim ummah….be cautious of them as ignorance is one thing but never forget that some Muslims are agents of the kuffar.

Jibril (‘alayhis salam) advises Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to recite a du’a when distressed

Question

What is the reference for this narration?

No affliction afflicted Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) but Jibril (‘alayhis salam) came down advising him to recite this du’a:

I have placed firm trust on the Ever living who does not die. All praise is due to Allah who has not taken a son nor does he have any partner in His kingdom; and glorify Him in abundance.

Answer

This narration is recorded in Mustadrak Hakim and Ad Da’awatul Kabir of Imam Bayhaqi.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whenever I was distressed/grief struck, Jibril (‘alayhis salam) would appear and would say, O Muhammad! Recite the following:

تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الْحَيِّ الَّذِي لَا يَمُوتُ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيرًا

Tawakkaltu ‘alal hayyilladhi la yamutu walhamdulillahil ladhi lam yattakhiz waladan walam yakun lahu sharikun fil mulki walam yakun lahu waliyyum minazzuli wa kabbir hu takbira

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 509, Ad Da’awatul Kabir, Hadith: 185. Also see: Al Faraju Ba’dash Shiddah of Imam Abu Bakr Ibn Abid Dunya, Hadith: 66, Targhib, vol. 2 pg. 619 and Al Matalibul ‘Aliyah, Hadith: 2449)

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) also instructed a Sahabi to recite this du’a who was undergoing financial difficulty and sickness. See here

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.

YOU ARE RUBBISH

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
   “Soon will the (kuffar) nations form coalitions to devour you.”
Someone asked: “On that day will it be because of the paucity of our numbers?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “On the contrary, you will be numerous, but you will be RUBBISH such as the rubbish of floodwaters. Allah will most certainly eliminate fear for you from the hearts of your enemies, and He will most assuredly  cast Wahan in your hearts.” Someone asked: “O Rasulullah! What is Wahan?”
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:  “Love for this world and dislike for Maut.”
These are the twin diseases that have destroyed this Ummah. At heart Muslims have become atheists. Allah Ta’ala is the furthest from their hearts and from their  everyday lives.  The Shariah is battered to conform to all the concepts and desires of the kuffaar. A new religion in the name of Islam is being created by the Munaafiqeen masquerading as Muslims. Islam is being trampled underfoot by its adherents in general and in particular by its so-called ulama –the molvis and the sheikhs. All of them are bogus, humbugs and frauds using the Deen for worldly and nafsaani objectives.

THE VIRTUE OF SECLUSION IN THE TIMES OF FITNAH

According to a narration recorded in Saheeh Muslim, the great Sahaabi and military general who had conquered vast swathes of lands for the Ummah, Hadhrat Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqaas (radhiyallahu anhu), had abandoned society and taken to herding camels and sheep in isolation. His son came one day to deliver some Naseehat to his father and to criticize him for his seclusion. 
Hadhrat Sa’d ibn AbiWaqqaas (radhiyallahu anhu) reacted with a punch to his chest. First, he sought refuge with Allah Ta’ala. Then, after allowing his son to say his piece, he delivered a blow to his son’s chest, before proceeding to tell him to shut up. Finally, he finished him off with the following statement of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam):
“Indeed, Allah loves the servant who has Taqwa, is rich (in the soul), and is hidden (from the people).”

In the commentary of this Hadith in Mirqaatul-Mafaateeh, it states:

“Indeed, Allah loves the servant who has Taqwa. That is, the one who steers clear of the Haraam and Doubtful matters, and he (even) refrains from (much of) what is desirable (to the nafs), and permissible.
(As for) “Richness”: An-Nawawi (Rahmatullah alayh)  said: “The intent of richness is richness of the soul. This is the richness that is desired due to his (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) saying: “(True) Richness is richness of the soul.”…
(As for) “Hidden”: (It refers to) The unknown person who is dedicated to the worship of his Rabb and occupied in matters related to (the perfection of) his soul.”

How to receive the du’as of the Angels

This article is from the many ones that were inspired by my Beloved Father (rahimahullah). He commenced the discussion on this particular one whilst I was at his side during a dialysis session. Such was his love for ‘ilm, that he engaged in its discussions everywhere, and not just in a classroom or from a mimbar.

May Allah Ta’ala fill his grave with nur, and raise his ranks in Jannah.

Angels are the pure creation of Allah Ta’ala, who are dedicated to fulfil any task that Allah Ta’ala orders them with. When Allah Ta’ala announced to them His decision to create mankind, they claimed that mankind will engage in evil [rather than good].

وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَـئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِى الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً, قَالُواْ أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَن يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَآءَ, وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَ, قَالَ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

‘And (remember) when your Rabb said to the angels: ‘Certainly, I am going to place a vicegerent on Earth.’

They asked: ‘Will You create there one who will spread disorder on the Earth and cause bloodsheds while we, along with Your praises, proclaim Your purity and sanctify Your name.’

Allah replied: ‘Certainly, I know what you do not know.’

(Surah Baqarah, Ayah: 30)

Allah Ta’ala frequently illustrates this to His angels in different ways.

The following Hadith is one such example:

Sayyiduna Mu’awiyah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu’ alayhi wasallam) saw a gathering in the Masjid, and enquired: ‘What has gathered you all here?’ They replied; ‘We are sitting engaged in the remembrance of Allah, and praising Him for guiding us to Islam and for His other favours.’

Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) enquired: ‘By Allah! Is that the only reason for gathering?’

‘By Allah! that is the only reason.’ they replied.

Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said: ‘Behold! I did not ask you all to take an oath, out of suspicion on you, but Jibril came to me and informed me that Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla is boasting of you by the Angels.’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 6797)

The reason for Allah boasting of this in the presence of the Angels, is to remind them of what they claimed [about man committing vice on earth], and to show to them what [virtue] mankind is now engage in.

Among the ways in which Allah Ta’ala proves this to the angels is by instructing them to make du’a for those among mankind who are engaged in good.

Allah Ta’ala says in the Quran:

الَّذِينَ يَحْمِلُونَ الْعَرْشَ وَمَنْ حَوْلَهُ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ وَيُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا رَبَّنَا وَسِعْتَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ رَّحْمَةً وَعِلْمًا فَاغْفِرْ لِلَّذِينَ تَابُوا وَاتَّبَعُوا سَبِيلَكَ وَقِهِمْ عَذَابَ الْجَحِيمِ

‘Those [Angels] who carry the throne and those around it exalt with praise of their Rabb and believe in Him and ask forgiveness for those who have believed, [saying], “Our Rabb, You have encompassed all things in mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who have repented and followed Your way and protect them from the punishment of Jahannam.’

(Surah Mumin, Ayah: 7)

Receive the du’a of the angels with the following deeds:

There are several deeds for which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) had promised the doer will receive the du’a of the angels.

Among them are the following:

1. Teaching good to others

عن أبي أمامة الباهلي رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم أنه قال: إن الله و ملائكته و أهل السماوات و الأرضين حتى النملة في جحرها و حتى الحوت ليصلون على معلم الناس الخير. رواه الترمذي (٢٦٨٥) و قال حسن صحيح غريب كما في تحقة الأشراف (٤٩٠٧).

Sayyiduna Abu Umamah Al-Bahili (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “Verily Allah Ta’ala sends His special mercy; and His angels along with all of the inhabitants of the heavens and earths -to such an extent even the ant in its hole and the fish- all make du’a upon/for the one who teaches the people good things.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2685)

2. Making du’a for others

عن أبي الدرداء رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: ما من عبد يدعو لأخيه بظهر الغيب إلا قال الملك و لك بمثل. رواه مسلم (٢٧٣٣).

Sayyiduna Abu Darda (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “No person (servant of Allah) makes du’a for his brother in his absence except that the angels make du’a saying: May you receive the same.”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2733)

3. Visiting a sick Muslim

عن علي رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: ما من مسلم يعود مسلما غدوة إلا صلى عليه سبعون ألف ملك حتى يمسى وإن عاده عشية إلا صلى عليه سبعون ألف ملك حتى يصبح وكان له خريف في الجنة. رواه الترمذي (٩٦٩) و قال حديث حسن غريب.

Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “When a Muslim visits a sick Muslim at dawn, 70,000 angels make du’a of forgiveness for him till dusk. If he visits him in the evening, 70,000 angels make du’a of forgiveness for him till the morning, and he will be granted a garden in Jannah.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 969)

4. Visiting a fellow Muslim

روي عن أبي رزين العقيلي رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم: يا أبا رزين! إن المسلم إذا زار أخاه المسلم شيّعه سبعون ألف ملك يصلون عليه و يقولون: اللهم كما وصله فيك فصله. الطبراني في الأوسط (٨٣٢٠) و قال الهيثمي: فيه عمرو بن الحصني و هو متروك، و ذكره المنذري بصيغة التمريض (٣٧٩٢).

It has been mentioned in a narration reported by Sayyiduna Abu Ruzayn Al-‘Uqayli (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) called out to him and said: O Abu Ruzayn! Verily when a Muslim sets out to visit his brother in Islam 70,000 angels attend to him making du’a saying: O Allah! Just as he has attempted to maintain ties for Your sake, join ties with him.

(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 8320)

5. Completing a recital (khatm) of the entire Quran

عن سعد بن أبي وقاص رضي الله عنه قال: إذا وافق ختم القرآن أول الليل صلت عليه الملائكة حتى يصبح وان وافق ختمه آخر الليل صلت عليه الملائكة حتى يمسي فربما بقي على أحدنا الشيء فيؤخره حتى يمسي أو يصبح. رواه الدارمي (٣٤٨٣) و قال: هذا حسن عن سعد و حسنه السيوطي في الإتقان (١١٥٦) النوع الخامس و الثلاثون تحت مسألة أفضل أوقات قرائة القرآن قبيل فصل الاقتباس. موقوف في حكم المرفوع.

Sayyiduna Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) has said: “When a person completes the Quran in the evening, the angels seek forgiveness for this person till the morning, and when he completes the Quran in the morning, the angels seek forgiveness for this person till the evening.”

(Sunan Darimi, Hadith: 3483)

6. Reciting the following, in the morning and evening

عن معقل بن يسار رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: من قال حين يصبح ثلاث مرات أعوذ بالله السميع العليم من الشيطان الرجيم وقرأ ثلاث آيات من آخر سورة الحشر وكل الله به سبعين ألف ملك يصلون عليه حتى يمسي وإن مات في ذلك اليوم مات شهيدا ومن قالها حين يمسي كان بتلك المنزلة. رواه الترمذي (٢٩٢٢) و قال هذا حديث غريب لا نعرفه إلا من هذا الوجه.

It has been mentioned in a narration reported by Sayyiduna Ma’qal bin Yasar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has mentioned: “Whoever recites A’udhu billahis sami’il ‘alim minash shaytanir rajim three times along with the last three versus of Surah Hashar when he awakes in the morning, then Allah Ta’ala appoints 70,000 angels to make du’a for him (and his forgiveness) until the evening. And if he dies on that day, he would have died as a Martyr. Whoever recites it in the evening will hold the same status (until the morning).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2922)

7. Sleeping with wudu

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: طهّروا هذه الاجساد طهّركم الله فانه ليس من عبد يبيت طاهرا الا بات معه في شعاره ملك لا ينقلب ساعة من الليل إلا قال اللهم اغفر لعبدك فإنه بات طاهرا. رواه الطبراني قي الأوسط (٥٠٨٧) و قال الهيثمي إسناده حسن (١٠/ ١١٢٨) وانظر فتح الباري (٢/ ١٣٢).

Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “Purify your bodies, Allah will purify you, for verily any person who sleeps in a condition of purity will indeed have an angel spending the night by his side and whenever he turns over at any moment during the night the angel says, ‘O Allah forgive your servant for verily he has spent the night in the state of purity.”

(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 5087. Also see Fathul Bari, vol. 2 pg. 132)

8. Reciting the following du’a when going to the masjid

عن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال:  ما خرج رجل من بيته إلى الصلاة ، فقال : اللهم إني أسألك بحق السائلين عليك ، وبحق ممشاي هذا ، فإني لم أخرج أشرا ولا بطرا ولا رياء ولا سمعة ، خرجت اتقاء سخطك، وابتغاء مرضاتك ، أسألك أن تنقذني من النار ، وأن تغفر لي ذنوبي ، إنه لا يغفر الذنوب إلا أنت ، إلا وكل به سبعون ألف ملك يستغفرون له ، وأقبل الله عز وجل عليه بوجهه حتى يقضي صلاته. رواه ابن ماجه (٧٧٨) و ابن السني (٨٥) و حسّن إسناد ابن ماجه الدمياطي في المتجر الرابح (١٣٢٠) حيث قال: و إسناده حسن إن شاء الله.

Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “No man leaves his home intending to perform Salah with congregation in the masjid reciting these words:

“Allahumma inni as aluka bi haqqis sawilina alayka wa bi haqqi mamshaya hadtha fa inni lam akhruju asharan wa la bataran wa la riya an wa la sum’atan, kharajtu itqa a sakhattik wabtigha a mardhatika as aluka an tanqudha ni mina nar an tagfira li dhunubi innahu la yagfiru dhunuba illa anta”

Except that Allah Ta’ala appoints 70,000 angels to seek forgiveness for him and Allah Azza wa Jalla directs his special mercy towards him until he completes his Salah.

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 778 and Ibnus Sunni, Hadith: 85)

9. While waiting for Salah

عن أبى هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: لا يزال العبد فى صلاة ما كان فى مصلاه ينتظر الصلاة وتقول الملائكة اللهم اغفر له اللهم ارحمه حتى ينصرف أو يحدث . قلت ما “يحدث”؟ قال يفسو أو يضرط. رواه مسلم (١٥٠٧).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “A person will continuously receive the reward of being in Salah as long as he remains in his place of prayer waiting for the Salah and the angels will continue making du’a for forgiveness and mercy on his behalf until he leaves or he makes “hadath”. When Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) what is meant by “hadath” he (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) responded: “Passing wind.”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1507)

10. Remaining in the spot of Salah with wudu, after Salah

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: الملائكة تصلي على أحدكم ما دام في مصلاه الذي صلى فيه ما لم يحدث اللهم أغفر له اللهم أرحمه قال مالك لا أرى قوله ما لم يحدث إلا الإحداث الذي ينقض الوضوء. رواه مالك (٤٤١) و انظر الترغيب و الترهيب (٦٢٦).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “The angels continuously make du’a for one of you as long as he remains in the masjid where he performed his Salah until he makes “hadath” saying: “O Allah! Forgive him. O Allah! Have mercy on him.” Malik (rahimahullah) said: I believe “hadath” can only be referring to those things which break a person’s wudu.

(Muwatta Imam Malik, Hadith: 441, also see At-Targhib Wat Tarhib, Hadith: 626)

11. Standing in the right saff (row) for Salah

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إن الله وملائكته يصلون على ميامن الصفوف. رواه أبو داود (٦٧٦) و ابن ماجه (١٠٠٥) و قال المنذري (٦٩٧): رواه أبو داود و ابن ماجه بإسناد حسن.

Sayyidatina ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said that: Verily Allah sends His special mercy and the angels seek forgiveness for those on the right side of the saff.

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 676 and Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1005)

12. Standing in the front saffs (rows) for Salah

عن أبي أمامة الباهلي رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: إن الله وملائكته يصلون على الصف الأول، قالوا: يا رسول الله وعلى الثاني؟ قال: إن الله وملائكته يصلون على الصف الأول، قالوا: يا رسول الله وعلى الثاني؟ قال: إن الله وملائكته يصلون على الصف الأول، قالوا: يا رسول الله وعلى الثاني؟ قال وعلى الثاني. رواه أحمد (٢٢٢٦٣) و الطبراني (٧٧٢٧) و قال الهيثمي (٢٩١) رواه أحمد و الطبراني في الكبير و رجال أحمد موثقون و الرواية الثانية صحيحة.

Sayyiduna Abu Umamah Al-Bahili (radiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “Indeed Allah sends His special mercy and His angels seek forgiveness for those who pray in the first saff”. The Sahabah asked: “What about the second saff?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) replied: “Indeed Allah sends His special mercy and His angels seek forgiveness for those who pray in the first saff”. The Sahabah again asked: “What about the second saff?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) again replied: “Indeed Allah sends His special mercy and His angels seek forgiveness for those who pray in the first saff.” The Sahabah again asked: “What about the second saff?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) then said: “And also for the second saff.”

(Musnad Ahmad, Hadith: 22263 and Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 7727)

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 153)

عن أبي سعيد الخضري رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: السحور أكله بركة فلا تدعوه و لو أن يجرع أحدكم جرعة من ماء فإن الله عز و جل و ملائكته يصلون على المتسحرين. رواه أحمد (٣١٢) و (٣٤٣) و قال المنذري: إسناده قوي (١٥٨٣).

Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has said: “The Sehri meal is full of barakah. Hence, do not omit the Sehri; even if one is able to have a sip of water at the time of Sehri, one should do so, for certainly Allah Ta’ala descends His special mercy upon those who have Sehri and the angels make special du’a for them.”

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 3 pg. 12 and vol. 3 pg. 43)

14. When someone eats in the presence of a fasting person

عن أم عمّارة بنت كعب رضي الله عنها أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم دخل عليها فقدمت إليه طعاما فقال كلي فقالت إني صائمة فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم إن الصائم تصلي عليه الملائكة إذا أكل عنده حتى يفرغوا وربما قال حتى يشبعوا. رواه الترمذي (٧٨٥) و قال: هذا حديث حسن صحيح.

Sayyidatuna Ummu ‘Ammarah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) visited her so she presented him some food. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) then told her to eat (as well with him) to which she replied: “I am fasting”. (Upon hearing this) Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “Verily the angels make du’a for the one who is fasting as long as food is eaten in front of him”.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 785)

15. After making salam, but not receiving a reply

وعن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: السلام اسم من أسماء الله تعالى وضعه في الأرض فأفشوه بينكم، فإن الرجل المسلم إذا مر بقوم فسلم عليهم فردوا عليه، كان له عليهم فضل درجة بتذكيره إياهم، فإن لم يردوا عليه رد عليه من هو خير منهم وأطيب. رواه البزار (١٧٧١) و الطبراني (١٠٣٩١) و قال الهيثمي (٨٢٩) : رواه البزار بإسنادين و الطبراني بأسانيد و أحدهما رجاله رجال الصحيح عند البزار و الطبراني و قال المنذري (٣٩٩١) : و أحد إسنادي البزار جيد قويّ.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “As-Salam is one of the names of Allah Ta’ala that has been placed on Earth. So, spread it amongst yourselves! For indeed when a Muslim passes by a group of people and greets them (first) with Salam and they reply to him, he will supersede their rank by virtue of merely reminding them of the Salam. If they do not reply to him, then those (angels) who are better and more purer will have replied!”

(Musnad Bazzar, Hadith: 1771 and Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 10391)

16. Giving Charity

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: ما من يوم يصبح العباد فيه إلا ملكان ينزلان فيقول أحدهما: اللهم أعط منفقا خلفا و يقول الآخر: اللهم أعط ممسكا تلفا. رواه البخاري (١٤٤٢) ومسلم (١٠١٠).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “Not a single day goes past when people wake up except that two angels descend; one of them (making du’a) saying: O Allah! Grant the one who spends (in avenues of good) a replacement/replenishment! Whilst the other one (curses) saying: O Allah! Send forth destruction for the one who misses (excessively).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1442 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1010)

17. After sneezing and not receiving a reply, for saying: Alhamdulillah

عن إبراهيم رحمه الله قال: إذا عطس و هو وحده فليقل: الحمد لله رب العالمين، ثم ليقل: يرحمنا الله و إياكم، فإنه يشمّته من سمعه من خلق الله. رواه ابن أبي شيبة (٢٦٥١٧) و قال شيخنا الناقد محمد عوّامة حفظه الله: رجاله ثقات.

The famous Tabi’i; Ibrahim (rahimahullah) has said: “When a person sneezes whilst he is alone then he should say:

Alhamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Aalamin, yarhamunAllahu wa iyyakum

for indeed those creations (including the angels) of Allah Ta’ala who heard him will reply to his sneeze (making du’a for him).

عن جعفر بن محمد الصادق رحمه الله قال: من صلى على رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم في كتاب صلت عليه الملائكة غدوة و رواحا ما دام اسم رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم في ذلك الكتاب.

ذكره ابن الجوزي في جلاء الأفهام (ص ٥٦) و السخاوي في القول البديع (ص ٤٨٤) و انظر التدريب (٤/ ٣٧٠، ٣٧٤-٣٧٢).

Ja’far ibn Muhammad As-Sadiq (rahimahullah) has said: “Whoever writes salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) in a book, the angels will continue to make du’a for him as long as the Name of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is in that book.

DERELICTION OF THE ULAMA

“And fear such a fitnah (divine punishment) which will most assuredly not be restricted to only the (flagrant) transgressors. And, know that verily Allah is severe in punishment.” (Qur’aan)

When the guardians of the Shariah – the Ulama – follow in the footsteps of the priests and monks of the Yahood and Nasaara, by abstaining from Amr Bil Ma’roof, Nahy Anil Munkar and with their silence when the Haqq of Islam is being distorted and trampled on by professed Muslims, then such Ulama slide into the camp of the Ulama-e-Soo’ (the evil scholars). This Qur’aanic aayat, in particular, refers to the Ulama-e-Soo’. Furthermore, within the scope of this divine warning come even the very pious worshippers who consciously follow the Deen, but abstain from Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy anil Munkar. They become desensitized in their evil environment. They begin to socialize and fraternize with the flagrant violators of the Shariah. They condone the acts of transgression of the wealthy and manufacture decrees (fataawa) of permissibility for their wrong-doings to ensure there is no cessation of donations and gifts. Such pious worshippers will also be caught in the whirlwind of divine chastisement when it overtakes the community. They will find no succour.

Hadhrat Aishah (radhiyallahu anha) narrated that Allah Ta’ala commanded Jibraeel (alayhis salaam) to destroy a city in which there lived 20,000 saintly persons whose A’maal-e-Saalihah (Pious Deeds) were like the deeds of Ambiya. When Jibraeel (alayhis salaam) queried the secret underlying this Divine Command, Allah Ta’ala informed him that these Aabideen (pious worshippers) abstained from Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar. They fraternized and associated with the flagrant transgressors. They responded to their haraam wedding invitations and other merry-making functions, and consumed the mal-oon (accursed) food served at these evil functions. This ‘hikmat’ (satanic diplomacy) which is the hallmark of the Ulama-e-Soo’ of our time, led to the ruin and destruction of even these 20,000 Aabideen.

The Ulama should divert their gaze from the pockets of their donors, and focus it on Allah Azza Wa Jal. The projects of the Deen will operate, continue, expand or decrease according to the decree of Allah Ta’ala. The safeguarding of the Deen is Allah’s responsibility. The responsibility of the Muslim is to only ensure that he maintains himself strictly within the limits of the Shariah.

“Say: Nothing befalls us except what Allah has decreed for us. He is our protector. Thus, the Mu’minoon should have trust on Allah.” (Qur’aan)
