KUFR OF CHILD’S PLAY, GAMES, BIRTHDAYS & CELEBRATIONS

Posted on Sat 3 December 2022
THE KUFR OF CHILD’S PLAY, GAMES, BIRTHDAYS & CELEBRATIONS
Computer games, comics, fiction novels, apparently harmless cards, metal disks found it various food products…and many other such “toys” have become the “in thing” with most children and teenagers. Yet, are they really as harmless as they seem? And do they have no effect on the impressionable minds of young children? Many parents have experienced that a great number of these forms of “entertainment” have a dramatic negative impact on young minds. If one looks carefully at these toys, with the spectacles of Imaan and through the eyes of the Qur’aan and Sunnah, the danger will be glaring.

SHIRK IN GAMES

Among the thousands of titles of computer games, subtle messages of immoral behavior and even shirk (idol worship) can be discerned. The “characters” in one game can be controlled to interact with other characters in various ways. Some of these ways are clearly what amounts to illicit contact in terms of Shariah. Imagine the effect on children who continuously control the characters to behave in an illicit manner? Another game takes the player through various stages wherein he conquers the enemies. As he progresses to higher levels, he eventually comes to the “Grand Temple” and his prize is to come into the court of the “Grand Master”, etc. In the process of these “games” many subtle messages settle in the mind and heart. Allah forbid, they could become the stepping stone to acting in a like manner in real life.

METAL DISKS AND CARDS

The metal disk and cards in packets of chips, boxes of cereals and other products are also a cause for great concern. Apart from the eerie faces and horrid pictures on the cards, they largely centre on magic, wizards and fairies. The “powers” of one card character is listed as “omnipotent”. Omnipotence is an attribute of Allah Ta’ala alone. The aspect of shirk in this is obvious. Fiction novels are another major factor in the breakdown of Islamic morals and respect in the youth. Many fiction books that are very popular among school-going boys and girls are books that encourage “dating” and in general the illicit boy-girl relationships that are a standard feature in Western society. Many comic books also centre on illicit boy–girl relationships. Children reading these “comics” for entertainment are affected by the behavior of the characters. The negative effects are bound to fall in their impressionable minds. Parents can never afford to be complacent with regard to what their children play with. The damage to their character and Imaan can be disastrous. We cannot allow anyone to play with the Imaan and character of our children!!!

CELEBRATIONS

The World Book Dictionary defines Christmas in the following manner:

“1. The yearly celebration of the birth of Christ; December 25. Christmas is marked by special Church services, giving gifts and sending of greetings.

The religious and festive season before and after Christmas day.”

As for New Year’s Day, the World Book Encyclopaedia describes it in the following words: “The Roman ruler Julius Caesar established January 1st as New Year’s Day in 46 B.C. The Romans dedicated this day to Janus, the god of gates, doors and beginnings. January was named after Janus, who had two faces-one looking forward and the other looking backward. The early Romans gave each other New Year’s gifts of branches from sacred trees. In later times, they gave coins, imprinted with pictures of Janus, or gold covered nuts.” Likewise, Easter is described as: “the yearly celebration of the day on which Christ rose from the grave.” These are celebrations of Kufr and Shirk. May Allah Ta’ala protect our Imaan.

A Teachers Warning

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

As a Madrasah teacher, teaching high-school girls and university students, the challenges they face or get caught up in are of great and grave concern. (Other teachers who are teaching in different Makaatib will attest to the same issues.)

Many of the students attend private schools. These are the elite schools in KZN. Over the years, mothers have made it clear to me that they want the best secular education for their children and won’t consider anything less than the best private schools or even boarding schools.

The following are some of the incidents brought to my attention, of happenings in these private and renowned schools, direct from the students, mothers or teachers.

1.) A number of students have doubts believing in Allah, since Darwin’s theory of evolution and the big bang theory are expounded in their classes.

One student said that they are not allowed to bring up the word ‘God’ or religion, because their teacher is an atheist. (Nor are they allowed to bring up an issue like Palestine or mention the word, ‘Palestine’)

They have asked me to explain the existence of Allah, as they have misgivings and are not sure anymore.

They have Muslim names, say they are Muslims to keep their parents comfortable, but their minds are 100% secular. They are thus not keen to practise on the teachings of Islam.

Parents naively believe that the environment and education will not affect their children’s Deen; in reality it is destroying their Deen.

2.) An all-girls’ school had a principal, for many years, who identified herself as a lesbian. It was no secret. She left such a legacy in the school that a number of the students now also identify themselves as lesbians.

Muslim mothers and the students themselves were indifferent to this. They described her as a good principal, considerate and accommodating. There was no concern that the one in charge of their daughters was involved in such immoral conduct or would influence them to the same way of life.

Now we have Muslim girls coming out as lesbians and they are already in relationships with other girls. They say that their parents know nothing of their tendencies and inclinations, and don’t want them to find out. If not lesbian, many ‘Muslim’ girls fully support those who are. (The same scenario is found amongst boys).

3.) The LGBTQ+ community has grown so much at the schools, that will shock many parents. A lot of promotion and time is being spent to “educate” students of these ‘rights’.

When some of these ‘Muslim’ girls are asked about it, they treat the topic as a joke and laugh about these happenings. They consider these as ‘new norms’ and acceptable. Otherwise, we have some ‘Muslim’ students who argue regarding LGBTQ. These students strongly advocate that as Muslims, we have to accept the LGBTQ, support and sympathise with them.

…What is left of a person’s Imaan when he or she considers permissible what Allah has declared as prohibited?

And if any student, at these schools, does not toe the line and accept, she is targeted and labelled homophobic. She is considered biased, is snubbed and even reported to teachers.

4.) Many Muslim girls (and boys) are caught up in zina (fornication) and they brazenly make it known. It is out of control. One student said to me that in her click of 8 Muslim girls, 5 have already lost their chastity. These are high-school girls. The parents are either blissfully unaware or are themselves caught up in the same vice of adultery. …Married Muslim women have made known their illicit relationships and even that of their spouses. Very sadly, this is the kind of bad example some of the children have today, in their parents.

On the other hand, there are those children who fall into depression and wish to end their lives when they find out about their parents’ promiscuity or “double lives”. One student mentioned that she was contemplating suicide because both her mother and father were involved in adulterous relationships. This was the key factor of her depression and it was what prompted suicide.

5.) Whilst it is common for unmarried non-Muslim girls to fall pregnant or have abortions during their school/university years, the same is becoming common amongst our Muslim girls. (The company you keep…)

6.) In these institutes, the girls are coached to be feminists. There are educators who promote and push the agenda of feminism, freedom, independence and fighting for one’s “rights”. As a result, students wrongly see Islam as repressive. Their questions and ideas indicate this. Many don’t want to wear a scarf, let alone dress modestly or live according to Islamic teachings because of the influence of feminist “ideals”.

(Alhamdulillah, Islam has already honoured women with great rights, respect and honour.)

7.) A Muslim student was so influenced by her school ‘friends’ at one of the most prestigious private schools in SA, that she became a call girl. She began to earn money through sex chats. Her mother had insisted she attend the school, arguing that her daughter has to have the best secular education.

…If the end-product is a prostitute, I think we can all agree that there is a need to reassess our priorities.

8.) Although called an ‘all girls schools’, male teachers are employed. For many of these schools, the uniform is a short skirt and shirt. But there is no worry from the parents. It really does not matter to most of them that there are male teachers or lesbians or atheists teaching their daughters. Being an all-girl’s school with a high level of education seems to make everything ‘right’?

…Wrong.

9.) One mother declared that she sends her daughter to a private Christian school for the “best secular education”, and mentioned that her young daughter finds the priest to be “very compassionate” towards her.

…Can we be so naïve?

Another Muslim mother shared that her daughter spent the week-end away on a school excursion, but said she was happy in the knowledge that her daughter was ‘safe’ in the guardianship of a priest. (?)

…If this does not create uneasiness and worry in a mother, you are surely living in a bubble.

10.) Students attending these schools/institutes have said that some of their friends – girls and boys – have left Islam. Their parents don’t know. Drugs, drinking, pornography, satanism, homosexuality, etc. are rife.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Some incidents are just too shameful to mention; not only in the KZN province and South Africa, in schools for boys and girls, at primary and secondary levels and universities; it is a global pandemic. Even our Muslim schools are not free from these evils. The problems are obviously exacerbated when children are given access to Tiktok, YouTube, Netflix and other social media platforms.

So My Message to Parents is:

If you have placed your daughter/son in such an environment, you own this.

If they fall into immoral conduct and Kufr, you carry this burden.

Say what you like, but if you enrolled them in these schools and institutes, are paying their fees and transporting them to and fro, day in and day out, the blame is squarely on you.

You can throw out all kinds of criticism and excuses in response to this, to justify your choice, it is not going to change the facts on the ground. You can save your reasons and excuses for the Day of Judgement, but will they carry weight in the Court of Allah?

You can continue to live in denial, but it won’t change reality. You cannot foolishly plead ignorance before Allah.

Sending them to Madrasah for 1 hour or 2 hours to assuage your conscience, but eagerly and readily sacrificing Madrasah for extra-curricular activities, tuition, etc. shows where your loyalties lie. When they are spending 7 hours+, Monday to Friday (online or onsite), with secularists, feminists, modernists, lesbians, gays and others (not forgetting the amount of time spent on social media), then surely that influence will be greater than a few hours spent in Madrasah, half-heartedly. …Educate yourself on what secularism is. Because if any education distances us from Allah, it certainly is the worst and the poorest education; not the best.

You can decide:

If you still want the most elite schools and best secular education, and are happy with the end result, even if it is the fire of hell, all at your expense, then of course that is your bad decision.

If you have concern for your children’s Imaan, then step out of the rivalry game and competition circles. We are not here to boost our egos and boast our wealth and our worldly status.

You may not like the reminder, but we are the slaves of Allah. We are here, in this world, to worship Him and prepare for the Hereafter. This world is not the be-all and end-all. We have to return to Allah.

You have been given your child as a trust from Allah. Sending your daughter/son to such a school, college or university environment, with the kind of sins that are glorified there, is a huge compromise on Deeni principles, for which you will be accountable on the Day of Judgement.

For yours and your daughter’s/son’s Imaan and salvation, take them out

A Teachers Warning

Sublime “Holiday Spots”

Assalamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

Sublime “Holiday Spots”

A man was on his way to a neighbouring village when an angel suddenly appeared before him. ‘What takes you to this village?’ inquired the angel. ‘To visit a brother whom I love for the sake of Allah,’ was the sincere reply. The angel questioned further, ‘do you have any other motive?’

The man replied ‘No’, upon which the angel exclaimed, ‘I am the messenger of Allah and I assure you that Allah loves you as you love your brother.’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 6495)

At the same time, another angel is deputed to proclaim the following message to him:

“You have done well, your footsteps have been profitable, and you have prepared an abode for yourself in Paradise.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2008)

Allah Ta’ala Himself announces:

“My love is incumbent for the one who loves, visits, or spends on others purely for my sake.”

(Musnad Ahmad, vol.5 pg.233)

Value and Demand

The reason for such abundant rewards could be understood in light of the business principle: Commodities are valued according to demand and availability.

The scarcer a product, the higher the demand and therefore the greater the returns.

The same concept is found in certain aspects of Shari’ah. Those deeds that are seemingly insignificant and seldom practised generally yield a higher reward. People meet daily in the world for various motives, but the practice of loving/meeting someone purely for the sake of Allah is totally foreign to us.

Of the many disastrous ill effects of present-day society is the concept of self-centeredness, where each person cares for himself whilst remaining totally oblivious to the presence and needs of those around him.

Presently, there are many such un-noticed Muslim brothers and sisters that are secluded in old aged homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centres, orphanages etc, who await some kindhearted soul to lift their spirits by paying them a visit. Occasional visits to such places would do us more benefits than harm.

Visiting Allah

One who visits the sick is, so to say, visiting Allah Ta’ala. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “Allah Ta’ala will say to man (on the day of Qiyamah), O my slave, I was sick and you refused to visit me. ’Man will exclaim, O Allah, how could that be possible whereas You are the Lord of the Worlds? ‘Allah will reply, A certain slave of mine was sick, had you visited him, you would have found Me by him” (Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 6501)

If the merit of visiting an ordinary Muslim is such, can one imagine the rewards for visiting those with whom one shares a special bond?

Imagine the honour of joining ties with Allah!

One who maintains family ties is promised the privilege of Almighty Allah joining ties with him, i.e. by means of showing His special mercy, etc. On the contrary, Allah Ta’ala severs ties with those who break family ties. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 7502)

The Wrong Alternative

Nowadays, people choose to spend their spare time frequenting places that are totally immoral and filled with vice and sin, like: the cinemas, casinos, shows, entertainment halls, beaches, parties etc.

The mere presence of a Muslim in such places in the company of immodest people is extremely detrimental to his Iman.

On the contrary, ask yourself the question:

when last did you visit your relatives, your local ‘Alim, an elder of the community, or any fellow Muslim brother purely for the pleasure of Allah?

Visiting the sick, the elderly, the needy, one’s relatives, neighbours or any other Muslim for the sake of Allah was a salient feature in the life of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam). He would even visit such non-muslims, like the ill Jewish lad.

This assisted in bonding the Ummah as well as its expansion.

Today too, especially during the present holiday season, we can achieve all that and more by implementing this important and neglected Sunnah of our beloved Master (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)

Instead of emulating the rest of the world who celebrate the year-end with as much sin as possible, thereby drawing the wrath of our Creator upon mankind.

May Allah Ta’ala protect the Ummah from all fitnah.

Well-wishing Businessmen

Well-wishing is a fundamental part of our Din.

In the famous, authentic (sahih) Hadith, Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘The Din [of Islam] is well-wishing.’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 196)

The fact that Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) used such an expression shows how inherent this quality is in Islam.

According to ‘Allamah Nawawi (rahimahullah), this Hadith is the core of our Din. i.e, The whole of Din is based on this principle of well-wishing (nasihah). This quality governs all aspects of a Muslim’s life.

( Al-Minhaj, commentary of Hadith: 197)

Well-Wishing Tradesmen

Well-wishing is undoubtedly a quality that is needed in every Muslim, in every facet of his/her life.

The following is a Hadith in which Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) exhorted the adoption of this quality specifically in business and trade too. This applies to both parties of any deal; both should be considerate to each other, and apply the fundamental principle of well-wishing (nasihah).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

The best of earning, is the earnings of that worker who well-wishes.’ [i.e. Is honest, upright, is one who has the well-being of the customer in mind].

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 2 pg. 334)

Inspiring Incidents

There are several inspiring examples of the Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) and those after them adopting this beautiful quality in their business dealings.

Among them are the following:

1 & 2. Sayyiduna Jarir ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu’anhu)

‘Allamah Nawawi (rahimahullah) writes:

‘It is reported about Sayyiduna Jarir (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that he ordered his slave to buy a horse for 300 dirhams, the slave came with the owner of the horse to discuss the price. Sayyiduna Jarir (radiyallahu’anhu) said to the owner of the horse, your horse is worth more than 300 dirhams, will you sell it to me for 400. He said you can have it, O Abu Abdir Rahman. Then Sayyiduna Jarir said it is worth more than that, sell it for 500. In this manner he continued increasing the offer by 100 and the owner was happily agreeing until it reached 800 dirhams, upon which the deal was concluded. Sayyiduna Jarir (radiyallahu’anhu) was asked about this to which he said: I pledged allegiance to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) to be a well-wisher for every Muslim.’

(Summarised from Al-Minhaj, commentary of Hadith: 197. Also see Al-Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 2395)

  • It was Sayyiduna Jarir’s (radiyallahu’anhu) habit whenever he bought or sold anything to anyone, to say to him:

‘I want you to know that what I have taken from you is more preferred to me than what I have given you. You may choose again if you wish.’

(Sunanul Kubra of Bayhaqi, vol.5 pg.271)

3. Another Sahabi (radiyallahu’anhu)

Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu’anhu) mentions that he went with a man to the market, when they noticed a particular item being sold. [Sayyiduna Anas says] I enquired about it, the seller asked for thirty. The man [that I was with] looked at it and said: ‘I will take it for forty.’ The seller asked: ‘What makes you do this, whereas I am offering it to you for less?’ The man took another look and said: ‘I will take it for fifty.’ The seller asked: ‘What makes you do this, whereas I am offering it to you for less?’ He replied: ‘I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saying: ‘A bondsman will not be a true believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself’, and I see this to be worth fifty.’

(Musnad Bazzar, Hadith: 7548 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 1 pg. 95)

4. Imam Yunus ibn ‘Ubayd (rahimahullah) 

The Tabi’i; Imam Yunus ibn ‘Ubayd (rahimahullah) was a cloth merchant in Basrah.

On one occasion someone came to sell him a silken robe. When he enquired the price, he was told it was being sold for five hundred dirhams.

Imam Yunus (rahimahullah) replied: ‘It is better than that.’ i.e, it’s worth more.

The seller raised the price to six hundred, to which Imam Yunus gave the same answer.

This continued until he (the buyer) raised the price to a thousand dirhams!

(Tadhkiratul Huffaz, vol.1 pg.145)

5. Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah)

One one occasion, a merchant came to sell cloth to Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah).

The merchant wanted one hundred dirhams for it.

Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) said that it’s actually worth more. (Again here, the buyer is actually raising the price!)

This person then asked for two hundred dirhams for that cloth.

Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) said: ‘Its worth more than that!’

The person then raised the price to three hundred dirhams.

To which Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) gave the same answer.

When the price was raised to four hundred, he said:

‘It’s actually worth more, but I’m prepared to pay four hundred if you agree.’

(Fadail Abi Hanifah of Ibn Abil ‘Awwam, vol.1, pg.130)

Lesson

The underlying lesson in all these incidents is for the buyer to look at the benefit of the seller. When one looks again at these incidents, one will understand that even the seller had the well-being of the buyer in mind, therefore in each of these incidents the seller didn’t ask for an unreasonable price!

Such are the sublime teachings of the Sunnah, that everyone should look at how to benefit the opposite party, and Allah grants barakah in those dealings. Unlike is common in the current capitalist system; where everyone looks for his own gain, irrespective of the collateral damage it may entail, whilst all are deprived of barakah!

The above incidents should serve as eye-openers for Muslims of today. See more on this, here.

Such was the exemplary traits of our predecessors. May Allah Ta’ala inspire us all to follow.

Imagine what a better place this world would be with such impeccable business practices!

The Charitable Buyer

How often have we purchased items from vendors on the streets and sidewalks?  Some of us who do so, also have the habit of bargaining with these poor vendors.

The following Hadith is a source of guidance and inspiration on this topic:

A Profound Deed

Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) had purchased a camel from me. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) paid me the price, and gave me a little extra. As I departed, he (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) called me back. I thought perhaps Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was unhappy with the camel and wanted to return it. When I went to him, he said: ‘You may keep the money and the camel.’

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2097 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 3626)

Morals

1. When paying our dues, it’s good to give a little extra too.

2. Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu) had lots of overheads which included the expenses of his seven sisters as well. This was a way in which Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) offered his support to him.

3. Let us also revive this practice, especially when we are purchasing goods from poor vendors on the sidewalks.
[on condition they are not exploiting foreign tourists!]

Instead of bargaining with such people, who are in conditions of much need, we ought to be paying the full price.

In some instances, we should pay extra with the intention of charity.

At least once in a while, pay the price, take the item and then return it without taking back the money either.

See the joy that this blessed Sunnah of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) brings to their faces. In fact, the doer too feels a sense of satisfaction in this.

It could also be a means of attracting them to Islam. The Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) is always an attraction to Islam…

Let us give it a try this holiday season.

Hating God

There are those who resent the idea of worship. They resent the idea that God will judge them. They feel indignation at the thought that they should have to submit to God’s will. These are not people who don’t believe that God exists. They know God but only as the object of their resentment and bitterness, so they scorn religion, mock religious people, and curse God out of their spite. Why? Because deep down they believed themselves to be greater than God Himself, wiser and more just. They in essence set up false expectations of God and asked, “Why did God allow this, and why did God require that?” They want to judge God and they want God to submit to their will and their sense of right and wrong. So they follow the sunnah of Satan and Pharaoh and, if they persist, will meet the same end.

A Brief Introduction to Islam

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Islam is a comprehensive way of life (in Arabic, Din). Islam means “submission,” referring to surrender and submission to the One True God. This Din is based on five things: foundational principles, practices, spirituality, a Revealed Book, and the example of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (may Allah bless him and grant him peace).

In brief: there are eight foundational principles (Usul) of Islam. These are the basic tenets of the Din, and no one can be a Muslim (follower of Islam) without ascribing to these⁠—even if they claim to be a Muslim and ascribe themselves to Islam.

Knowledge of Allah, His Messenger, the Din of Islam, and the Qur’an

Al-Bara’ (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated:

حَدَّثَنَا مَحْمُودُ بْنُ غَيْلاَنَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو دَاوُدَ، حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، أَخْبَرَنِي عَلْقَمَةُ بْنُ مَرْثِدٍ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ سَعْدَ بْنَ عُبَيْدَةَ، يُحَدِّثُ عَنِ الْبَرَاءِ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي قَوْلِ اللَّهِ ‏:‏ ‏(‏ يُثَبِّتُ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِالْقَوْلِ الثَّابِتِ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَفِي الآخِرَةِ ‏)‏ قَالَ ‏”‏ فِي الْقَبْرِ إِذَا قِيلَ لَهُ مَنْ رَبُّكَ وَمَا دِينُكَ وَمَنْ نَبِيُّكَ؟ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ ‏.‏

Regarding Allah’s saying: (Allah will keep firm those who believe, with the word that stands firm in this world and in the Hereafter (14:27)).

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “In the grave, when he [the dead person] is asked: ‘Who is your Lord? What is your religion? And who is your Prophet?’”

(Jami` at-Tirmidhi, 3120)

Who Is Allah?

Allah is the Arabic Name of the One True God. Muslims believe in Allah with respect to: creed, sovereign jurisdiction, and gnosticism. Muslim creed (‘Aqidah) about Allah is that He is uniquely One (Unicity; Tawhid).

Allah is One in Himself, not being made up of parts or personalities. Allah has no son or father. This type of Oneness is called Wahdaniyyah.

RELATED: Reality Check: Are We TRULY Grateful to Allah?

Allah is One to the exclusion of all else⁠—that no one and nothing is like Him in any way whatsoever. He is the only true Reality; the sustaining Lord of all creation; singularly deserving of worship; and supreme in His Beautiful Names and Attributes. This type of Oneness is called Ahdaniyyah.

Allah’s sovereign jurisdiction (Hakimiyyah) is His Will, legislative authority, and Revealed Law. Allah controls everything in existence and nothing can resist His unlimited power. He alone has the right to determine what is right and wrong, yet He has allowed mankind free will to choose between them. Allah has Revealed the Shari’ah, which is the Revealed path for mankind to traverse this life and into the next; in the proper fashion.

Gnosticism means to know God. Islamic gnosticism (Ma’rifah) is drawing closer to Allah through a direct personal relationship with Him. Ma’rifah is a constant effort to come to the awareness that the purpose of creation is to know Allah, love Him, and make Him the primary concern of all affairs.

اللَّهُ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ الحَيُّ القَيّومُ ۚ لا تَأخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلا نَومٌ ۚ لَهُ ما فِي السَّماواتِ وَما فِي الأَرضِ ۗ مَن ذَا الَّذي يَشفَعُ عِندَهُ إِلّا بِإِذنِهِ ۚ يَعلَمُ ما بَينَ أَيديهِم وَما خَلفَهُم ۖ وَلا يُحيطونَ بِشَيءٍ مِن عِلمِهِ إِلّا بِما شاءَ ۚ وَسِعَ كُرسِيُّهُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضَ ۖ وَلا يَئودُهُ حِفظُهُما ۚ وَهُوَ العَلِيُّ العَظيمُ

Allah, there is no god but Him, the Living, the Self-Sustaining. He is not subject to drowsiness or sleep. Everything in the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. Who can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them but they cannot grasp any of His knowledge save what He wills. His Footstool encompasses the heavens and the earth and their preservation does not tire Him. He is the Most High, the Magnificent.

(Qur’an; Surah al-Baqarah, The Heifer (2):255)

Who Is Allah’s Messenger ﷺ?

Throughout history Allah has sent many Messengers to teach mankind Tawhid. His final Messenger is the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, son of ‘AbdAllah, son of ‘Abd al-Muttalib. He is Allah’s beloved; the chosen one; the one whom mankind is gathered before on the Day of Judgment; the destroyer of polytheism; the final prophet; the best of the Messengers; the honest; the trustworthy; and the mercy to all of creation.

RELATED: The Power of the Prophet’s Character

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was sent to all of creation to guide them. Despite his intense humility, he is the best of Allah’s creation. Muhammad ﷺ was an ‘Arab man from the House of ‘Abd al-Muttalib; the tribe of Quraysh. His lineage goes from Shaybah to Hashim, up to Isma’il (Ishmael), the son of Ibrahim (Abraham).

مُحَمَّدٌ رَسولُ اللَّهِ ۚ وَالَّذينَ مَعَهُ أَشِدّاءُ عَلَى الكُفّارِ رُحَماءُ بَينَهُم ۖ تَراهُم رُكَّعًا سُجَّدًا يَبتَغونَ فَضلًا مِنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضوانًا ۖ سيماهُم في وُجوهِهِم مِن أَثَرِ السُّجودِ ۚ ذٰلِكَ مَثَلُهُم فِي التَّوراةِ ۚ وَمَثَلُهُم فِي الإِنجيلِ كَزَرعٍ أَخرَجَ شَطأَهُ فَآزَرَهُ فَاستَغلَظَ فَاستَوىٰ عَلىٰ سوقِهِ يُعجِبُ الزُّرّاعَ لِيَغيظَ بِهِمُ الكُفّارَ ۗ وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذينَ آمَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّالِحاتِ مِنهُم مَغفِرَةً وَأَجرًا عَظيمًا

Muhammad [ﷺ] is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are fierce against the kafirun, merciful to one another. You see them bowing and prostrating, seeking Allah’s good favour and His pleasure. Their mark is on their faces, the traces of prostration. That is their likeness in the Torah. And their likeness in the Injil is that of a seed which puts up a shoot and makes it strong so that it thickens and grows up straight upon its stalk, filling the sowers with delight – so that by them He may infuriate the kuffar. Allah has promised those of them who have iman and do right actions forgiveness and an immense reward.

(Quran; Surah al-Fat’h, Victory (48):29)

  • His family are respectfully referred to as the people of his household (Ahl al-Bayt).
  • Anyone whom claims Prophethood after him puts forth a false claim.
  • Whatever is authentically reported from him becomes the Sacred Law (Shari’ah).
  • Muslims believe that he physically ascended to the Heavens during the Night Journey (al-Isra’ wa al-Mi’raj) and spoke to Allah without an intermediary.
  • On the day of judgment his true followers shall be gathered at a Basin (Hawd), and anyone who drinks from it is saved.
  • He will intercede for all of humanity on the Day of Judgment and especially for the believers.
  • A person cannot have true faith until his desires are brought in line with what the Messenger of Allah ﷺ brought.
  • Loving Allah and His Messenger ﷺ must exceed ones love of everything else.
  • Yet, we are not allowed to incorporate him as a partner with Allah.
  • Upon hearing his name, Muslims recite a prayer for him⁠—may Allah bless him and grant him peace.

What Is the Din of Islam?

The Way (Din) in the Sight of Allah is submission (Islam). Any other path is misguidance. The Din is: submitting to Allah, singling Him out alone; yielding to Him in obedience; abandonment of disbelief; and abandoning the people of disbelief. A Muslim must believe in Tawhid, worship Allah, disavow themselves from all forms of polytheism, disbelief, and hypocrisy and to also disavow themselves from the people that ascribe to them.

إِنَّ الدّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الإِسلامُ ۗ وَمَا اختَلَفَ الَّذينَ أوتُوا الكِتابَ إِلّا مِن بَعدِ ما جاءَهُمُ العِلمُ بَغيًا بَينَهُم ۗ وَمَن يَكفُر بِآياتِ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ سَريعُ الحِسابِ

The Din in the sight of Allah is Islam. Those given the Book only differed after knowledge had come to them, envying one another. As for those who reject Allah’s Signs, Allah is swift at reckoning.

(Quran; Surah Al ‘Imran, The House of ‘Imran (3):19)

Polytheism (shirk) is incorporating any partners with Allah regarding His Tawhid, whether in ‘Aqidah, Hakimiyyah, or Ma’rifah. Disbelief (kufr) is rejecting any aspect of the Din. Hypocrisy (nifaq) is betraying the Din, whether in belief or actions.

What Is the Qur’an?

The Qur’an is Allah’s verbatim Speech. Allah Revealed His Speech to the archangel Jibril (Gabriel) and instructed him to give it to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ over his twenty-three years of Prophethood. The Qur’an was Revealed and recited orally, then written down entirely during the life of the Prophet ﷺ by his companions (sahabah). It was memorized in its entirety by many sahabah and compiled in one standardized volume by the end of the reign of his first successor (two years after his death).

Zayd ibn Arqam (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

فمنها حديث زيد بن أرقم رضي الله عنه -الذي سبق في باب إكرام أهل بيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم -قال‏:‏ قام رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فينا خطيباً، فحمد الله، وأثنى عليه، ووعظ وذكر، ثم قال‏:‏ “أما بعد”ألا أيها الناس إنما أنا بشر يوشك أن يأتي رسول الله ربي فأجيب، وأنا تارك فيكم ثقلين ‏:‏‏ “‏ أولهما‏:‏ كتاب الله، فيه الهدى والنور، فخذو بكتاب الله، واستمسكوا به” فحث على كتاب الله، ورغب فيه، ثم قال‏:‏ “وأهل بيتي، أذكركم الله في أهل بيتي‏”‏ ‏(‏‏(‏رواه مسلم‏)‏‏)‏ وقد سبق بطوله‏.‏

“One day the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) stood amongst us to deliver a Khutbah. So he praised Allah, extolled Him, exhorted and reminded (us) and said: ‘Amma Ba’du (now then)! O people, certainly I am a human being. I am about to receive a messenger of Allah my Lord (the angel of death) and I respond.

And I am leaving among you two weighty things: There first of which is the Book of Allah. In it is guidance and light, so hold fast to the Book of Allah and adhere to it.’ So he exhorted (us to hold fast to it) and encouraged it then said, ‘And the members of my household, I remind you of Allah with regards (of your duties) to the members of my family.”‘

(Sahih Muslim)

The Qur’an is a perfectly preserved and accessible miraculous manifestation of Allah’s glory. Muslims engage in regular recitals of the Qur’an in its entirety, reading it aloud in the way the Prophet ﷺ taught us, while contemplating upon its meaning.

Purpose of Life

Allah did not create the world without a purpose.

الَّذينَ يَذكُرونَ اللَّهَ قِيامًا وَقُعودًا وَعَلىٰ جُنوبِهِم وَيَتَفَكَّرونَ في خَلقِ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضِ رَبَّنا ما خَلَقتَ هٰذا باطِلًا سُبحانَكَ فَقِنا عَذابَ النّارِ

those who remember Allah, standing, sitting and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: ‘Our Lord, You have not created this for nothing. Glory be to You! So safeguard us from the punishment of the Fire.

(Quran; Surah al-Baqarah, The Heifer (2):191)

Furthermore, He did not create human beings without a purpose.

أَفَحَسِبتُم أَنَّما خَلَقناكُم عَبَثًا وَأَنَّكُم إِلَينا لا تُرجَعونَ

Did you suppose that We created you for amusement and that you would not return to Us?’

[Quran; Surah al-Mu’minun, The Believers (23):15]

Human beings are created for worship, which is devotion to Allah and drawing close to Him.

وَما خَلَقتُ الجِنَّ وَالإِنسَ إِلّا لِيَعبُدونِ

I only created jinn and man to worship Me.

ما أُريدُ مِنهُم مِن رِزقٍ وَما أُريدُ أَن يُطعِمونِ

I do not require any provision from them and I do not require them to nourish Me.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الرَّزّاقُ ذُو القُوَّةِ المَتينُ

Truly Allah, He is the Provider, the Possessor of Strength, the Sure.

(Quran; Surah al-Dhariyyat, The Spreaders (51):56-58)

The Covenant and Death

All of mankind was presented with evidence of Allah’s Tawhid and His supremacy, and we all testified that He alone deserves devotion. This primordial covenant is referred to as the “trust” (amanah).

إِنّا عَرَضنَا الأَمانَةَ عَلَى السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضِ وَالجِبالِ فَأَبَينَ أَن يَحمِلنَها وَأَشفَقنَ مِنها وَحَمَلَهَا الإِنسانُ ۖ إِنَّهُ كانَ ظَلومًا جَهولًا

We offered the Trust to the heavens, the earth and the mountains but they refused to take it on and shrank from it. But man took it on. He is indeed wrongdoing and ignorant.

(Quran; Surah al-Ahzab, The Confederates (33):72)

RELATED: Why Jeff Bezos Is Running Away from Death

Death is a certain reality and all living things will experience it. After death, all of mankind is held to account for their deeds. On the Day of Resurrection, everyone is brought back to life and judged according to their deeds in this life, as per the initial Amanah.

وَاعبُد رَبَّكَ حَتّىٰ يَأتِيَكَ اليَقينُ

And worship your Lord until what is Certain [death] comes to you.

(Quran; Surah al-Hijr, (15):99)

Unforgivable Offenses

Allah forgives all wrongdoings except for the most heinous: polytheism (shirk), disbelief (kufr), and hypocrisy (nifaq). Any oppression done to other creatures must be settled, however any moral sins against the Amanah are forgiven unless they totally invalidate it. Shirk, kufr, and nifaq are the roots of all evil.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَغفِرُ أَن يُشرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغفِرُ ما دونَ ذٰلِكَ لِمَن يَشاءُ ۚ وَمَن يُشرِك بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ افتَرىٰ إِثمًا عَظيمًا

Allah does not forgive anything being associated with Him, but He forgives whoever He wills for anything other than that. Anyone who associates something with Allah has committed a terrible crime.

(Quran; Surah al-Nisa’, Women (4):48)

They are an attempt to reject Allah’s Infinity, and as such a person is rendered to the only realm wherein they will remember Allah⁠—as is the purpose of their creation.

Those who demonstrate that they worship Allah when given freedom to do so, in accordance with the purpose of their creation, are taken to the paradisaical Gardens. Whereas those that require punishment in order for them to fulfill their purpose are taken to the Hellfire.

The Example of the Prophet (Sunnah)

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the best of Allah’s creation. He is our example. We follow him with regard to learning his biography, learning our Din from him, following his statements, imitating his behaviors, and implementing his perfect example.

لَقَد كانَ لَكُم في رَسولِ اللَّهِ أُسوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِمَن كانَ يَرجُو اللَّهَ وَاليَومَ الآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثيرًا

You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much.

(Quran; Surah al-Ahzab, The Confederates (33):21)

RELATED: Should We Fight Modernist Ideologies with Quran and Sunnah? Or Kalam?

Obeying the Messenger ﷺ leads to Paradise, and disobeying him leads to the Fire.

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated:

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدَانُ، أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ، عَنْ يُونُسَ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، أَخْبَرَنِي أَبُو سَلَمَةَ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ أَطَاعَنِي فَقَدْ أَطَاعَ اللَّهَ، وَمَنْ عَصَانِي فَقَدْ عَصَى اللَّهَ، وَمَنْ أَطَاعَ أَمِيرِي فَقَدْ أَطَاعَنِي، وَمَنْ عَصَى أَمِيرِي فَقَدْ عَصَانِي ‏”‏‏.‏

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me.”

(Sahih al-Bukhari, 7137)

Sincere Actions

All actions are accepted only if they meet three conditions: being in accordance with the Shari’ah, being done with full determination, and having a sincere intention.

وَما أُمِروا إِلّا لِيَعبُدُوا اللَّهَ مُخلِصينَ لَهُ الدّينَ حُنَفاءَ وَيُقيمُوا الصَّلاةَ وَيُؤتُوا الزَّكاةَ ۚ وَذٰلِكَ دينُ القَيِّمَةِ

They were only ordered to worship Allah, making their Din sincerely His as people of pure natural belief, and to establish salat and pay zakat – that is the Din of the correct.

(Quran; Surah al-Bayyinah, Proof (98):5)

If a person does not perform their deeds for Allah’s sake, then they are not accepted. All of the Usul of the Din must be engaged in sincerely.

It has been narrated on the authority of Amir al-Mu’minin, Abu Hafs ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him), who said:

عَنْ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَبِي حَفْصٍ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ: ” إنَّمَا الْأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ، وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى، فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ فَهِجْرَتُهُ إلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ، وَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ لِدُنْيَا يُصِيبُهَا أَوْ امْرَأَةٍ يَنْكِحُهَا فَهِجْرَتُهُ إلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إلَيْهِ”. رَوَاهُ إِمَامَا الْمُحَدِّثِينَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللهِ مُحَمَّدُ بنُ إِسْمَاعِيل بن إِبْرَاهِيم بن الْمُغِيرَة بن بَرْدِزبَه الْبُخَارِيُّ الْجُعْفِيُّ [رقم:1]، وَأَبُو الْحُسَيْنِ مُسْلِمٌ بنُ الْحَجَّاج بن مُسْلِم الْقُشَيْرِيُّ النَّيْسَابُورِيُّ [رقم:1907] رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا فِي “صَحِيحَيْهِمَا” اللذَينِ هُمَا أَصَحُّ الْكُتُبِ الْمُصَنَّفَةِ.

I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: “Actions are (judged) by motives (niyyah), so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah) was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated.”

(Sahih al-Bukhari & Sahih Muslim)

Advocacy

A Muslim must actively advocate for the interests of Allah, of His Messenger, and of the believers. This includes discussing and spreading Islam (da’wah), while assisting and supporting Islamic causes⁠—even if this is something as simple as maintaining upright moral character.

It has been narrated on the authority of Tamim ibn Aws ad-Dari (may Allah be pleased with him):

عَنْ أَبِي رُقَيَّةَ تَمِيمِ بْنِ أَوْسٍ الدَّارِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ: “الدِّينُ النَّصِيحَةُ.” قُلْنَا: لِمَنْ؟ قَالَ: “لِلَّهِ، وَلِكِتَابِهِ، وَلِرَسُولِهِ، وَلِأَئِمَّةِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَعَامَّتِهِمْ.” [رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ]

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The Din (religion) is nasihah (advice, sincerity).” We said, “To whom?” He (ﷺ) said, “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.”

(Sahih Muslim)

Patience and Trials

The purpose of life is to worship Allah. As a person’s worship of Allah improves, they are tested in order to further purify them and strengthen their connection with Allah. A Muslim is required to be patient with these trials.

الَّذي خَلَقَ المَوتَ وَالحَياةَ لِيَبلُوَكُم أَيُّكُم أَحسَنُ عَمَلًا ۚ وَهُوَ العَزيزُ الغَفورُ

He who created death and life to test which of you is best in action. He is the Almighty, the Ever-Forgiving.

(Quran; Surah al-Mulk, Sovereignty (67):2)

Patience in Arabic is called “sabr.” Sabr is fourfold: for Allah, in Allah, with Allah, and from Allah. Sabr for Allah is patience regarding abstaining from His prohibitions. Sabr in Allah is patience in surrendering to and following His commands. Sabr with Allah is patience and forbearance regarding hardships. Sabr from Allah is patience in being away from Him.

Conclusion

Islam is the truth. It is a clear, comprehensive, and perfect way of life. No other system of living is so thorough and thoughtfully assembled, as this Path comes from the Creator of all things.

“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.

SICKNESSES

ALSO SIGNS OF QIYAAMAH
The abundance of such sicknesses which were non-existent or rare, especially in the Muslim community, in former times, just a couple of generations ago, is also among the Signs of the proximity of Qiyaamah according to the Hadith. Today, the atmosphere in the Muslim community reeks of the preponderance of a variety of severe sicknesses and diseases such as cancer, heart problems, diabetes, etc., etc. CANCER has now become a norm.
In most cases as far as the laity is concerned, these sicknesses are forms of the Athaab (Punishment) of Allah Ta’ala for gross disobedience and sin. The consequence of the abundance of sins of Muslims is the abundance of incurable diseases.
When Allah Ta’ala afflicts people with the punishment of disease, then there is no doctor, no hakeem and no medicine that can cure. It is mentioned in the Hadith that sickness is from Allah Ta’ala and so is the cure from Him. Only Allah Ta’ala can cure. Going to the hospital only aggravates the Athaab. Hospital is compounded punishment.
The only way for the acquisition of shifa’ (cure) is to petition Allah Ta’ala. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Whatever is by Allah is obtainable only by means of Taa-at (Obedience).” And, Taa-at means total submission to the Ahkaam – the Shariah of Allah Ta’ala and the adoption of the Sunnah. It means purifying the body and the soul of sins of every kind.
The first step is Taubah, not the mere lip form of reciting Istighfaar litanies. Istighfaar follows Taubah. After a sincere Taubah, will the recitation of Istighfaar be beneficial. The vital and fundamental constituents of Taubah are (1) Honest regret in the heart for the sins committed, and (2) A pledge of totally abandoning the sins. Minus these vital requisites, Tauaba is not valid. When Taubah is not valid, the recitation of Istighfaar litanies is a mockery which will only compound the Athaab.
Once Allah Ta’ala forgives, the Shifa’ Aaayaat, the Ta’weezes, the natural, herbal and hakeem remedies will be fruitful and cure will, Insha-Allah, be bestowed by Allah Ta’ala. If Allah Ta’ala decrees that the sickness will not be cured, then the demand of Imaan is Sabr and Ridha’. The rewards will be phenomenal in the Aakhirah. With Sabr you will leave this dunya with purity and with Imaan intact.
