By Mufti Abdullah Moolla -August 24, 2022
Is it permissible to invite non-Muslims into the Musjid?
The disingenuous narratives of the moron muftis (maajin muftis) of our time have cast into confusion the laymen and even sincere molvis who are not grounded in the Ilm of the Deen.
There are two types of maajin muftis. For the edification of readers, a maajin mufti in terms of the Shariah is a thick-skulled, stupid, shameless so-called ‘mufti’ who lacks in adequate Ilm, who gropes in the darkness of his nafs, and who is bereft of Taqwa. In a true Islamic state such a brainless impudent character will be estopped from issuing fatwa, and if he persists, he will be flogged and imprisoned. It is just unfortunate that nowadays the trend is mass production. Darul Iftas staffed by maajin muftis have mushroomed, and along with it misguidance has spread and ruined Akhlaaq and Imaan of the masses.
The one kind of moron (maajin) mufti is sincere, but is not grounded in Ilm. His knowledge of the Deen at the higher level is pathetic. Nowadays the Madaaris produce almost exclusively maajin muftis. Most of them are of the second category, namely devils in human form (shayaateenul ins). In the description of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), they have the hearts of wolves. They are driven by either hubb-e-jah (love for name/fame) or by hubb-e-maal (love for wealth), or by both.
The first kind of moron mufti is cast into bewilderment and confusion when the second kind of moron mufti tears Fiqhi ibaaraat (texts from the kutub of Fiqh) out of their context and without understanding the circumstances and scenarios for the application of the texts, then structures his fatwa of jahl on its basis. Thus he casts the awaamun nass (the general public) into confusion with his smattering of knowledge anchored to the dictates of his nafs.
The first kind of moron mufti despite his sincerity becomes the victim of the jahaalat and nafsaaniyat of the second kind of maajin mufti. His (i.e. the first kind of moron mufti’s) superficial knowledge does not permit him to see beyond the confines of his nose. He is unable to distinguish between right and left, hence he is entrapped by the stupid fatwas of moron muftis of the second kind.
However, if the moron mufti of the first kind has cultivated Taqwa, then by virtue of his purified Baatin he will be able to understand and even spiritually feel the incongruency and butlaan of the stupid fatwa of the moron mufti of the second kind. The purified heart of the Mu’min becomes a guide, hence Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) commanded us: “Seek a fatwa from your heart.” But a heart enshrouded and darkened with zulmat (spiritual darkness) is incapable of traversing beyond the confines of his villainous nafs.
The issue under discussion is not merely the simple act of a non-Muslim entering the Musjid or being allowed into the Musjid for a valid Shar’i reason. A host of evils is attached to today’s practice of inviting non-Muslims into the Musjid. Thus, the issue is Inviting non-Muslims into the Musjid. It is not simply about a non-Muslim entering the Musjid.
An important Fiqhi principle to remember is that any permissibility which leads to haraam, also becomes haraam.
By Allah’s fadhl we have explained in detail in this brief treatise the Shariah’s prohibition which will, Insha-Allah, be readily absorbed by the sincere seekers of the Haqq.
The only insurmountable chasm within mankind, is between those those who recognize God and are grateful to Him and those who deny (lie) and live in delusion.
by Dr Najmuddin Hasan
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful and Beneficent
Dear Dr. Jordan Peterson,
We have been following your journey and return to God which brings us great happiness and joy, hoping that one day you will become a vanguard of the Truth, as all men are meant to be.
Your moral philosophy resonates with many Muslims as it conforms with man’s primordial instincts from God, innate to our heavenly creation (Fitrah). This explains why you have developed a large Muslim following. Your interactions with the respected Hamzah Yusuf and Muhammad Hijab have shown humility and honesty, the foundations of intelligence.
Your recent video ‘Message to Muslims’ unfortunately highlighted deficiencies in your knowledge that we would like to address. Foremost, God is certainly not a mental construct of psychology in order to perpetuate human civilization. He is the One and Absolute Truth which transcends all worldly descriptions and analogies. He is before time as He is now, and He is now as He is after the end of time. The end of creation will return to Him. You appear to recognize a transcendent supernatural reality, I can only assume your reluctance to use the name God, is due to the anthropomorphising of God in Christianity.
My personal journey as someone consumed by Physics to find the answers to the purpose of existence culminating in a PhD in Astro-Particle Physics has made me acutely aware of the limitations of the physical world and transitory, shallow nature of the material realm. What we call Iman, loosely translated to ‘faith’ is in fact the ‘cognisance of the metaphysical realm’ (Gnosis), the dimension of Quality (Plato’s Archetypes) which is not subject to metric measurements.
Indeed, religion’s purpose is to provide the divinely ordained pathway to God. Tragically many of the older religions tend to have been reduced to customs and cultural traditions.
The Quranic narration of Adam’s creation in heaven provides man with his history, purpose and final abode. Knowing the meaning of one’s existence is essential for a healthy, stable, balanced psychology, for an eternal soul.
Moreover, the Qur’an, the Word of God, addresses mankind six times using the words, ‘O Children of Adam’. The enunciation of this phrase inculcates within man his descent from Adam, the father of all men and the first Viceregent of the Truth (God) in Creation.
Furthermore, this title inculcates the knowledge that we are all siblings, one giant (albeit dysfunctional) family. There is no ‘other’ amongst Muslims, there is simply those born in the light of Truth and those born in an environment of dim fragmentary aspects of Truth. Those born and brought up in the light of Truth are obliged to fulfil their responsibility to God, which includes teaching and helping their brothers born in the darkness to find the Light of Truth.
How man engages with the Truth revealed in either environment is how he will be judged by the Just and Wise Creator of the heavens and the earth.
The Qur’an is described as ‘Furqan’, meaning ‘the Criterion’, ‘the Discernment’ or ‘the Discriminator’. The Qur’an discriminates between Truth and falsehood, reality and illusion, good and bad, right and wrong, it is said ‘Truth and falsehood cannot live side by side’. Truth must vanquish falsehood, or falsehood will try to cloud and cover up the Truth. Falsehood is the enemy of Truth. The two are irreconcilable. Falsehood is the distortion of Truth and God is the Truth. To clump truths and falsehoods together is falsehood; ‘the devil speaks in half-truths’.
You asked Hamzah Yusuf how you could be Jew, Christian and Muslim all in one, and he correctly replied “become Muslim”, meaning, ‘submit’ yourself to your Creator. Adam is a Muslim, Abraham is a Muslim, Moses is a Muslim, Jesus is a Muslim and Muhammad is a Muslim, peace be upon them all. Every Muslim understands he is the true follower of Moses (mentioned by name in the Qur’an 136 times), the true follower of Jesus (mentioned by name in the Qur’an 25 times) and Muhammad (mentioned by name in the Qur’an 4 times)—peace and blessings be upon them.
Islam, the Final Revelation, came to restore the true narrative and Message of the life of Moses and Jesus, hence Muslims recognize Islam as the complete and preserved testification of the same message of the previous Prophets. Muslims see the People of the Book as their predecessors. Islam, being the Final Testament and continuum of the previous covenants, becomes best suited to address the challenges of the modern world.
The Constitution of Medina, ratified by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) himself in 622CE following his migration from Mecca to Medina, manifests the clear teachings in the Qur’an and Prophetic tradition around peaceful coexistence with Jewish and Christian communities. Two of its many articles outline just treatment of the Jewish tribes in Medina, mutual military support and counsel, and loyalty:
Article 16 – “And that those who will obey us among the Jews, will have help and equality. Neither shall they be oppressed nor will any help be given against them.”
Article 37 (b) – “And if any one fights against the people of this code, their (i.e., of the Jews and Muslims) mutual help shall come into operation, and there shall be friendly counsel and sincere behaviour between them; and faithfulness and no breach of covenant.”
Islam’s solutions for coexistence are embedded in its very essence and manifested in the centuries of its political domination. Jewish, Christian (and even Shi’ite) minorities would not exist today if Islam ever needed overbearing lessons in this department. Tragically, as the Judaic Testament rejects the teaching of Jesus and the Judaic-Christian Testament reject Islam, the culture of tolerating the followers of the Final Testament was largely absent. As a Muslim with many Evangelical friends, I often see their insecurities in the face of Islam.
“˹Remember, O Prophet˺ when Abraham declared to his father and his people, “I am totally free of whatever ˹gods˺ you worship, except the One Who originated me, and He will surely guide me.”
The Abrahamic way was that ‘primordial’ way, submitting to the Creator in radical, non-cultish monotheism:
“Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian; he submitted in all uprightness (lit. ‘Muslim’) and was not a polytheist. Indeed, those who have the best claim to Abraham are his followers, this Prophet (Mohammad, peace be upon him), and the believers. And Allah is the Guardian of those who believe.”
Your identification of nihilism as evil gives me hope that your heart will be opened to the Truth. But I urge you to ponder a little further: differences in theology should not necessarily lead to bloodshed, but they are not trivial either. To posit a special chosen people can easily result in notions of racial superiority or to posit God manifesting himself as a human avatar can easily lead to humans attributing to themselves Godlike attributes.
You debated with Slavoj Žižek. His contention with Christianity is that its doctrine of the incarnation leads to Atheism. This doctrine brings God down to a human level, ultimately denying His transcendent and absolute reality “since the external guarantee is abolished.”
In summary, usurping of divine verse with human inventions as happened with the earlier scriptures invariably results in the dissipation of the soul and oblivion. Only the unadulterated word of God gives solace to the soul and anything else leads one astray. This is not to say that we cannot debate in an environment of learning and academic exchange, but we must ultimately acknowledge that we cannot (including yourself) hold fundamental differences and be all, at once, upon God’s chosen way.
The central tenet of faith of Islam is the submission to the One and Absolute God and the establishment of our close, intimate, direct relationship with Him. In the creation of Adam, God tells us that he breathed His Spirit into him. This Divine spark is crystallized as an eternal soul which is fully cognizant of the Truth of the One God. Hence our inherent primordial instinct (Fitrah) recognizes the One God, but some choose to deny this because of their pride and passions.
Islam provides the inclusive, broad, sustaining way of life which is accessible to all human beings independent of culture, clergy or state where man submits to God alone, without idols or intermediaries. Submission to God frees man from any attachment or slavery to a created entity – this is true freedom.
Incidentally, your citing of Sigmund Freud and Friedrich Nietzsche does you a disservice. In many respects these two are the pioneers of modern, hedonistic decadence. One cannot single out the Abrahamic traditions as “the light in the word” whilst taking inspiration from Friedrich Nietzsche, who radically critiqued truth and morality in favour of perspective and famously blasphemed that ‘God is dead’. Is it not revealing that a man who blasphemed in this way ended his days in a mental asylum?
Paul Vitz in his book ‘Faith of the Fatherless’ cites the parental dysfunctionality of the fathers of leading Atheists causing their children’s psychological dysfunctionality. These fathers were either abusive, weak or absent. The father represents God’s Authority in a child’s early years. Is it a coincidence that Sigmund Freud, another you often quote, suggests that an ‘Oedipus complex’ drives a child to bear lethal enmity towards their same-sex parent for their envious, sexual desire towards the other?
Tragically, the ‘Abraham Accords’ are neither ‘extraordinary’ nor “have laid out the possibility for peace between all the people of the book.” Instead, these ‘Accords’ are but political horseplay, instigated by irreligious and tyrannical oligarchs for the sake of recognising the illegitimate (and largely secular) and colonial Zionist entity. They are a political ruse designed for the Muslims to accept the injustice of the Zionist usurpation of the native Palestinians. We would not want you to alienate your Muslim friends by supporting this injustice.
The only real unbridgeable chasm within mankind is between those who recognize God and are grateful to Him and those who deny (lie) and live in delusion.
True common ground is to acknowledge God, submit to Him and recognize the Message of all His Messengers and the authority of His books. For enduring peace to prevail upon the earth, it must be preceded by justice and justice itself must be preceded by Truth. We hope, as you do, that both justice and peace prevail over the world and invite you using the same invitation extended to the People of the Book:
“Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “O People of the Book! Let us come to common terms: that we will worship none but Allah, associate none with Him, nor take one another as lords instead of Allah.” But if they turn away, then say, “Bear witness that we have submitted ˹to Allah alone˺.”Qur’an 3:64
 Refer to Plato’s Republic ‘Allegory of the Cave’
 Mentioned in the Sirah of b. Hisham and Ibn Kathir’s Al-Bidayah wa al-Nihaya.
 The UN creation of the Zionist Sate encouraged the migration of the Jewish Communities from the Safe Muslim Land to Israel. Ironically the Jewish Communities within many Muslim lands were due to the Jews escaping European (Christian) Pogroms.

Dr Najmuddin Hasan graduated with a BSC (Hons) First Class in Physics, followed by a Dip of Advanced Mathematics and Physics (Cantab) and PGCE (Cantab) from the University of Cambridge and went on to pursue a PhD in Particle Physics from the University of Bristol.
Although brought up within a religious household, his mindset was determined by the secular education systems of his schooling which led to a pursuit and devotion to Physics at the highest level at both Bristol and Cambridge Universities. His love for knowledge in all domains resulted in extensive reading of Politics, History and Philosophy. During his university years, he became very active in Islamic Societies, organising activities and lectures, and met many knowledgeable, wise and scholarly brothers who corrected, taught and guided him away from a secular mindset to an Islamic one. He later assisted Professor Abdul Mabud of Cambridge University to write a book refuting the Theory of Evolution from a scientific perspective.
Presently, Dr Hasan is a chartered Electrical Engineer within the Power Systems industry. As part of his educating of his own children, Dr Hasan conducts regular Islamic gatherings for the youth, exposing the falsehoods of modern secularist concepts through their own self–contradiction and endeavours to inculcate the mindset of the companions and early believers to aid understanding of the Islamic texts.
Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person. —Genesis 2:7 A Jewish group, Congregation L’Dor Va-Dor of Boynton Beach, Florida has challenged a new Florida law prohibiting abortion after 15 weeks on the grounds of religious freedom rights. According to Jewish law, life begins at the first breath. The basis for this position is the passage cited above from Genesis. It is upon that line and others that Judaism takes the position that identity and the rights of personhood come into being at the first breath and not before. Moreover, the Talmud, the body of Jewish civil and ceremonial law, asserts that a fetus is a part of its mother throughout the pregnancy, dependent fully on her for its life. So, therefore, a pregnant woman convicted of murder, for example, may be executed without fear that more than one human life is being taken. And, though it is widely agreed that abortion is permitted if continuing the pregnancy poses a threat to the life of the mother, the precise definition of “threat to the life” has varied widely among scholars, some including the mental as well as the physical health of the mother, as in the case of rape and incest. The synagogue contends that the law “prohibits Jewish women from practicing their faith free of government intrusion and this violates their privacy rights and religious freedom,” adding that people who “do not share the religious views reflected in the act will suffer” and that it “threatens the Jewish people by imposing the laws of other religions upon Jews.” Congregation L’Dor Va-Dor’s Rabbi, Barry Silver, observed that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the law at an evangelical church. Concerned that when the line between religion and government begins to blur those who suffer most are the minority religions. “Every time that wall starts to crack, bad things start to happen,” Rabbi Silver said. Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, scholar in residence at the National Council of Jewish Women agrees. “This ruling would be outlawing abortion in cases when our religion would permit us,” she said, “and it is basing its concepts of when life begins on someone else’s philosophy or theology.” The lawsuit filed by Congregation L’Dor Va-Dor poses some weighty questions: What happens when religious freedom for one faith violates that of another’s? And to what degree may the state be the final authority on morality? A recent Pew Research survey found that 85% of Jews favor abortion in most or all cases, or more than any other religion surveyed. But only 2.4% of American adults identify as Jews. These percentages lead to a third question: Does majority rule also apply to whatever is the religious majority? In signing the Florida bill into law Governor DeSantis has opened the floor to a problem that will need a truly Solomonic resolution.

Question of Brothers from West Africa:
Assalamu Alaikum waRahmatullah,
Respected Elders and Brothers,
Many provisions of the universal declaration of human rights and international laws, now assimilated and adopted in many majority Muslim constitutions, regard the rulings of the Shariah or Islamic law as unjust and against human dignity:
Hadd punishments – lashing, amputations of hands, stoning to death – are regarded by these constitutions as torture or inhumane treatment contrary to human dignity, and thus the whole Islamic criminal justice system is viewed as unjust, unjustifiable and unacceptable.
Under these laws, apostasy, a capital offence under Shariah rule is legalized and the offender is covered and protected by the provision of freedom of thought, conscience and religion which include the right to change one’s religion;
With the provisions giving the right to freedom of expression and the press, bad and evil people have the right to own, establish and operate any medium of information, ideas and opinions, some of which encourage immoralities, embark on social engineering programs against Islam, promotion of democracy, de-Islamization policies, etc through the media which are contrary to Islamic law.
Provisions give the right to freedom from discrimination which regard more legal rights to men as discriminatory against women, especially in the entitlement of the male heir with double share of that of the female in many cases of succession under Islamic law as well as in other domains of the Shariah.
With this constitutional situation prevailing in many Muslim countries (in fact, in all Muslim countries –The Majlis), and its devastating impact on every aspect of Muslim life, what is the program and advice for a Muslim to save himself and his family?
We are in the era which is in close proximity to Qiyaamah. This evil trend and satanic culture mentioned by you will only be incremental. Nothing will become better. All so-called Muslim countries are in the firm grip of kufr and shaitaaniyat. All regimes and governments in control of the lands of Islam are today confirmed Munaafiqeen, Murtaddeen and Kuffaar. The Deen is today only in Kitaabs, and true Muslims are all underground in their graves.
The stage for Dajjaal has been set. All the kufr regimes at the helm of Muslim affairs are reflections of the kufr and villainy of the masses. Allah Ta’ala imposes on people rulers who are a reflection of the deeds and misdeeds of the masses.
We are today in the age about which Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) advised:
“Leave the affairs of the people!”
In other words: It is every man for himself. It is swim or sink. Be concerned with your own and your family’s moral reformation. The entire Ummah is rotten and the Ulama are rotten to the core. There is today no worse and no more villainous species of humanity than the ulama-e-soo’ whom Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) feared more than even Dajjaal. We are in the middle of a raging ocean being buffeted by storms of kufr, fisq and fujoor which are being promoted by the ulama-e-soo’ who are the primary cause for the destruction of the Ummah.
Brothers, there is nothing we can do other than to:
Be firm in Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar
Attend to our own moral reformation
Engage in Ibaadat
Be in seclusion as much as possible
Look after yourselves and your immediate families – forget about others. The time will soon come when a man will wish to be in the grave. It will become extremely difficult and even dangerous to keep your Imaan afloat. Just make dua and hope for the best. We are in a veritable spiritual minefield. Walk with care otherwise you will blow up your Imaan. Was-salaam

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem
All praises are due solely to Allah Ta’ala, the one who raised His final messenger among the Arabs. Peace and salutations be upon our master Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam the one who ordered the expulsion of the Jews from the Arabian Peninsula. Three Gulf States, namely Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain are currently on a campaign to expunge the religion of Islam from all aspects of life in a bid to appease the apartheid regime of Israel. Concerts and cinemas have sprouted up in Saudi Arabia while the largest temple outside of India has been inaugurated by the UAE government. Saudi Arabia is removing all content from Islamic literature that is deemed “Anti-Semitic” while the UAE is funding various wars and think-tanks across the globe to curb and curtail anything to do with Islam. The de facto rulers of Saudi Arabia and UAE, MBS (Murtad Bin Shaytaan) and MBZ have nothing to do with Islam. They are on a mission to satanise the Arabian Peninsula in conjunction with the apartheid regime of Israel and the Masjid-demolishing regime of India. We have been explicitly prohibited from befriending the Kuffaar and adopting their ways and customs. This will lead to our downfall and destruction in both this world and the hereafter.
The example of Sri Lanka has been brought to the attention of the reader in the Ummati Ummati book. The Sri Lankan Muslims hosted open Masjid days in which Buddhists would come to the Masaajid and pollute the Houses of Allah Ta’ala. The Muslims also desecrated the Masaajid with masks. The consequence was forced cremation of Muslim Mayyits. The Muslims could do nothing but watch the bodies of their fathers, mothers etc. being incinerated and burnt to ashes. Maulana Ebrahim Bham of Fordsburg Jamiat, in an attempt to bamboozle us, made the following foolish statement:
“Assimilate or be annihilated”
May Allah Ta’ala make this book a means of us abstaining from befriending the Kuffaar and following their ways and customs. Ameen.
MURTADS IN THE TEMPLE OF SHIRK
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?
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.
