LAME EXCUSES OF WIVES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTABLE

In a lengthy Hadith Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described a scene in the Divine Court on the Day of Qiyaamah. A woman who will be ushered into the Divine Presence, will be asked about her neglect of Salaat (and also about her other violations of the Shariah). This woman will say in her defence that her obligations to her husband and children, and her household duties did no permit her the time to regularly perform Salaat. She will also present the excuse of her husband’s foul temper which had instilled fear in her. She was therefore constrained to be at his beck and call, hence she was unable to fulfil her Deeni obligations. Allah Ta’ala will then command that Hadhrat Aasiyyah (rahmatullah alayha) be ushered into His Presence. It will then be said to the woman. “Was your husband a greater oppressor and worse than her husband, Fir’oun?” The woman will reply: “O Allah! No one was a greater oppressor and more evil than Fir’oun.” It will then be said to this woman: “Despite Aasiyyah having been the wife of such a cruel and evil tyrant, she was never neglectful of her ibaadat nor forgetful for a moment of Allah’s remembrance. If the oppression of any husband could have prevented any wife from Salaat and her Deeni obligations, then most certainly, Aasiyyah would have been prevented. O woman! The excuse of your husband is baseless. You, of your own accord was neglectful of the Deen. You did not fear My punishment, hence you disobeyed My commands, and rebelled against the teachings of My Rasool. Today you shall taste of My chastisement.” Allah, Rabbul Aalameen will then command the Angels to cast her into Jahannum. May Allah Ta’ala save us from such disaster. Wives should understand that the first allegiance of every Muslim is to Allah Ta’ala, not to the husband. Furthermore, in almost all cases, the excuse of the husband is a smokescreen presented to deceive others and to perpetrate self-deception. Obedience to the husband in any act which results in disobedience to Allah Ta’ala is haraam. While the wife is required to fulfil her obligations to her husband, it is strictly prohibited for her to present the excuse of her husband’s orders and wishes to justify her commission of haraam. In fact, if her husband intransigently requires her to disobey Allah Ta’ala, she should opt for separation, leave the marital home and take refuge in the home of her parents. On the Day of Qiyaamah, the lame excuses tendered in selfdefence and in justification of sins will not avail.

“WOMEN-LED WEDDINGS”

THE KUFR OF “WOMEN-LED WEDDINGS”

QUESTION

What is the Shariah’s view regarding “women’s-led weddings”? Is it permissible for a woman to officiate at a Muslim Nikah ceremony? She also recites the Nikah khutbah and conducts the ceremony in the same way as an Imaam does? Please comment in detail on this new development.

ANSWER AND COMMENT

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Never ever will prosper the affair of people who entrust their affair to a woman.”

“Relegate them (women) to the background as Allah has relegated them into the background.”

When it is haraam for a woman to recite audibly even the Qiraa’t during Salaat even in privacy, by what stretch on intelligent logic and Shar’i comprehension will it ever be permissible for her to recite audibly a nikah khutbah and have it broadcast for all the kuffaar, fussaaq and fujjaar of the world to hear? When it is haraam for her to recite even the Talbiyah audibly, how can it ever be halaal for her to recite a khutbah audibly for an audience consisting of a variety of devils?

The issue of a stupid woman stupidly ‘officiating’ at a Nikah ceremony is not of technical or academic concern. It is related to the practical domain of the Shariah – to the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Salafus Saaliheen. It is an issue which has to be viewed in the light of the Sunnah practice of the Ummah – the Practice inherited from the Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu anhum) who were the first and the chief proponents and exponents of the Sunnah. And, obedience to the Sunnah is Waajib by the Command of Allah Azza Wa Jal repeatedly mentioned in the Qur’aan Majeed: “Obey (and follow) Allah and His Rasool.” This is the recurring theme which permeates the entire Qur’aan Majeed.

Any practice which is in conflict or in negation with the standard Sunnah is a satanic act stemming from the emporium of Kufr operated by the zanaadqah and the munaafiqeen who masquerade as Muslims. While these munaafiq modernists set themselves up as exponents of the Shariah, and proponents of the Deen, they are bankrupt in every equipage necessary for the validity of even Imaan.

Every Muslim with even the intelligence of a chicken can readily comprehend that a Nikah conducted by a woman is in diametric conflict with the Sunnah and as such stands condemned and haraam in the Eyes of the Shariah. There is absolutely no scope for this kufr accretion in Islam. Never was there such a kufr practice in Islam from its very inception. Did the greatest female Aalimah, Hadhrat Aishah (Radhiyallahu anha) ever encroach on this issue which belongs exclusively to the male domain?

This new, stupid, kuffaar-emulated practice has no relationship with Islam. It is a haraam innovation. This type of ‘wedding’ is not permissible. A couple who has suffered the satanic calamity and misfortune of having been duped into this shaitaani bid’ah should have a proper Shar’i Nikah performed.

Only women who are lesbians or confirmed prostitutes can possess the shaitaani temerity of ‘officiating’ a nikah ceremony. This office is designed divinely exclusively for males. A nikah at which a lesbian-type woman officiates is Mal-oon (Accursed).

QUESTION

Also comment on a ‘recent trend’ of women preferring to represent themselves at their wedding ceremonies instead of being represented by their Walis (Male Representatives, e.g. father, brother, etc.). Is this trend permissible?

ANSWER

This is another haraam trend. Firstly, even technically and in terms of Islamic Legality, such a marriage is not valid according to THREE of the four official Math-habs of the Sunnah, viz., Maaliki, Shaafi and Hambali. Although in terms of the Hanafi Math-hab, there is slight leeway for legal validity, it is HARAAM for a woman to bypass her male Wali and arrange for her own nikah. Thus, there is Ijma’ (Consensus) of all Math-habs, and of even deviate groups such as the Salafis, that such a nikah is HARAAM.

Again, only women whose modesty has been rent apart, who in all probability are no longer virgin due to fornication, who will have such satanic brazenness to arrange for their own marriages – to represent themselves in 100% denial of the Law of the Wali ordained by Allah Azza Wa Jal.

These lewd women are just like the Carrion Cartel such as SANHA and MJC who maintain that their certified carrion chickens and carrion meat are ‘halaal’ despite their entire killing system, packing system and mock supervisory system being haraam from A to Z. Despite the entire system being 100% In conflict with the Shariah and emphatically Haraam, these vile carrion purveyors dupe the public into the capital LIE that their meat and chicken products are ‘halaal’. In like manner are these immoral women and their Munaafiq male handlers who goad them on to perpetrate haraam and ruin their morality, their Imaan and their Aakhirat. Despite their shaitaani perpetrations being brazenly and flagrantly HARAAM, they seek legal mirages to cloak their haraam acts with a vestige of permissibility.

QUESTION

A modernist says that although Islam requires spouses to marry with a contract, this is neglected in the Muslim community. Is this claim Islamically valid?

ANSWER

The claim is a satanic invalidity. The chap who ventured this stupidity is undoubtedly a zindeeq, a munaafiq and a murtad. Islam does not require what the zindeeq moron alleges. While a contract is permissible, it is not a requisite of the Nikah nor is it a Sunnah practice. It is an isolated act which never was encouraged by the Sunnah.

The claimant is most probably a supporter of the lesbian women’s lib. movement, hence he has made this preposterous claim. The Islamic practice of more than fourteen centuries rejects this stupid notion of the lesbians and the zindeeq male handlers of these immodest women who are in entirety lacking in haya (shame and modesty) about which Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Haya is a branch of Imaan.”

These lesbian-orientated semi-women are so shameless that they advertise their zina relationship on the internet for all and sundry to see and know. They are not Muslims. They are such kuffaar who are worse than even Iblees himself, and their male handlers are even worse.

CONCLUSION

Epistasis and infusoria of this filthy, kufr type will be on the increase. Lewdness and immorality are integral to the introductory stage of Qiyaamah. According to the Hadith such satanically immoral specimens of humanity will still be literally transfigured into apes and pigs. The first stage of this process is the transformation of the hearts and brains. The hearts and brains of these immoral epistasis specimens of the human race have already been figuratively transformed into the brains and hearts of pigs and apes. The literal or physical transformation and disfigurement are yet to occur on the doorstep of Qiyaamah.

A MAULANA AND A LADY

QUESTION
I am the uncle of a lady involved or was involved in a love saga with a Maulana. The Maulana is a well known pious figure in the community, and he is my close friend. The lady is about 30 years old and the Maulana about 50 years. Both are married and have children. The husband of the lady is a close friend of the Maulana. He always seeks advice from the Maulana. He has implicit trust and confidence in his friend, the Maulana. Whenever the Maulana comes to the town where the lady lives with her husband, he (the husband) is the host at whose home the Maulana stays for the duration of his visit. Every morning the husband leaves to attend to his business. Sometimes the Maulana is alone at home with only the lady present, the children also having left for school. In this scenario, a relationship developed between the Maulana and the lady (my niece). They developed a strong mutual love. Everything except actual zina was committed. After some time, a couple of years, the Maulana came to his senses, and I believe the lady as well. They have realized the evil of their relationship, have made Taubah and are very remorseful. No one besides myself and of course, Allah Ta’ala, is aware of this sordid saga. I told both that in my opinion, their Taubah is not sufficient to atone for their conduct. The evil is of such a nature that it requires more than Taubah. Am I right? Both have presented some excuse for their evil conduct. The Maulana says that it was in a moment of weakness that he succumbed to his nafs; that he did not plan to develop a relationship with his friend’s wife. It was never even in his dreams. He therefore feels confident of having been forgiven by Allah Ta’ala. He has also profusely apologized to the lady via myself. The lady contends that she was young at the age of 30 and she simply became infatuated with the Maulana who was 20 years senior to her. Her excuse, in her own words: “As a young lady I was totally overwhelmed by the Taqwa, knowledge and wisdom of the middle-aged man, and simply fell in love. This led to my treacherous, erratic and out-of character behaviour.” Both are persons of the Deen. Are their excuses valid? What else should they do besides Taubah to expiate for their very evil conduct and haraam relationship. Please comment and offer us advice which will benefit others as well. I might add, that numerous people are involved in similar and worse haraam sagas. Jazaakallah!

ANSWER AND NASEEHAT
At the outset, in order to contain the explosion in us, and to avoid being judgmental – judgement which in our emotional opinion demands the assignment of this absolutely disgusting treacherous couple to everlastingly burn in Hell Fire, our brains constrain us to mellow our disgust and wrath with the following Aayat of Allah Ta’ala:
“Say (O Muhammad!) to My servants who have oppressed their souls that they should not despair of the Rahmat (Mercy) of Allah, for verily, He forgives all sins. Verily, He is the OftForgiver, The Most Merciful.”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that no matter how numerous and how great the sins committed may be, Allah Ta’ala forgives the sincere repenters. Therefore, even if the sins are as numerous as the bubbles on the ocean and as huge as the Himalayan mountains, the remorse in the heart wipes out all these sins even before the verbal Taubah has been made. The soul of Taubah is regret in the broken heart of the sinner, i.e. if his heart is truly broken by the absolute villainy and notoriety of the callous, treacherous and unforgivable misdeed perpetrated. ‘Unforgivable
from our perspective, not from the perspective of Allah Who is Ghafoor and Raheem – Whose mercy and ghaffaariyat are boundless and always available to the sinners. But this does not and should not detract us from the reality and notoriety of the misdeed. Allah’s boundless Rahmat is never a license for adopting a lackadaisical attitude towards sin in general and in particular towards the disgusting treachery committed by this devil Maulana and this vixen, traitorous woman. This Maulana has cruelly, deceitfully and most treacherously stabbed his friend in the back, seduced his wife and deracinated from his heart and brains the ‘knowledge’, ‘wisdom’ and ‘taqwa’ which this vixen had imagined, and presents as an excuse for her infidelity. Her presentation is a trick of her nafs to minimize the villainy of her treachery. The excuses of both are totally invalid. Their excuses are being presented to soothe their own conscience which rebels against their treacherous conduct, and to minimize the utter villainy and disgust of their treachery. This attitude – their subconscious minimizing of the gravity of their notoriety – is a dangerous trap of shaitaan to pollute their Taubah. Taubah, according to the Qur’aan must be Taubah Nasooh, i.e. a Repentance raised on the bed of raw Ikhlaas (Sincerity and Remorse). They should not present even the slightest vestige of cover or minimization of their absolutely unacceptable treachery. Just imagine! A trusting friend – a loving and caring husband is brutally stabbed in his back by his ‘trusted’ Maulana friend and his ‘faithful’ wife for whom he labours and loves so dearly. This ‘friend’ is a dacoit, a fraud, a deceit of the most treacherous kind, and this ‘faithful’ wife is an immoral vixen. Both should drown themselves in the cesspool of inequity and treachery which they have prepared for themselves. We wonder if after this treacherous brutality, did this Maulana ever have the guts to look his friend in the face? Did this treacherous woman ever have the guts to look her husband straight in the face? If yes, it indicates that they have not understood the absolute disgust of their treachery. They are banking on their Taubah. They should remember that they are dealing with a Being Who does not forget – with Allah Azza Wa Jal. Tomorrow is the Day of Qiyaamah. If Allah Ta’ala has not accepted their Taubah, they will stand there in the multitudes in the Divine Court facing the Friend/Husband. This miserable couple should ponder, in fact, meditate – engage in Muraaqabah – on that scene which could transpire on the Day of Qiyaamah. We reiterate that Allah Ta’ala is All-Forgiving and All Merciful. The Doors of Taubah never close. But the Taubah must be genuine. From the excuses proffered we discern deficiency in their Taubah. They must renew their Taubah afresh. They must refrain from presenting straws of extenuation. They must fully, fully realize their villainy and understand that they are rotten inside and outside – rotten to the core. Then with this attitude should they drown themselves in tears and cry their hearts out seeking forgiveness from Allah Ta’ala. It took the Maulana extremely long to come to his senses. If the relationship was perpetuated for years, the gravity of the villainy and treachery is multiplied manifold. The Maulana’s excuse of having succumbed in a moment of weakness to his nafs is false. The perpetuation of the haraam affair for years was not enacted in a “moment of weakness”. The continued affair has all the paraphernalia of plan and contemplation which are aggravating factors to damn and condemn the Maulana. Remaining at home alone with the lady is also indicative of planning. What happened to his knowledge, wisdom and taqwa? He is not ignorant of the Hadith Warning: “Never ever be alone with a woman, for verily the third one present is shaitaan”. His knowledge, wisdom and taqwa should have dictated that he should never have cast himself into such a dangerous combustible situation. A man and woman alone, especially when they were no longer strangers, are the ingredients for a sudden flare-up of the nafs. Did his knowledge, wisdom and taqwa not remind him that Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed: “Do not approach near to zina.”
But here this Maulana threw all of these Qur’aanic and Hadith warnings out of the window. The knowledge, wisdom and taqwa which do not protect a man in such combustible situations are fake. Our Mashaaikh say: “Verily, Allah loves a penetrating gaze when doubt settles on a person, and He loves a kaamil (perfect) aql (intelligence) when lust devours him.” In such dangerous situations, if the intelligence is employed to restrain and subdue the nafs, then it will be a kaamil aql, and the struggle will be more meritorious than the struggle in the physical battlefield. For a man who utilizes his knowledge, wisdom and taqwa to maintain the purity of his body, mind and heart, i.e. overwhelm his nafs by beating down his concupiscent desires to prevent himself from indulgence in haraam, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) presented the following glad tidings: “He who falls in love (with a woman), and remains pure (in body and mind), then dies, verily he has become a Shaheed.” As for the vixen: her claim of being a ‘young woman overwhelmed’ by the moron Maulana’s imaginary integrity, is utterly baseless. She was at that stage a mature woman of 30, a mother of children, and she had a loving caring husband to attend to her desires, yet she betrayed him in such a cruel manner. Does she not know that from the age of buloogh – the age of 15 or even before – the person is an adult in Islam and is held liable by Allah Ta’ala for his/her deeds? Does she think that she is absolved of punishment for her misdeeds because of her age of 30? Does she not know that she can be stoned to death for adultery regardless of being 30 or 15? In fact, the enormity and villainy of the crime of this wicked Maulana and this vixen lady are of such egregious proportions that they should believe that they are fit for Rajm (Stoning to Death). With such a sincere attitude totally bereft of any vestige of self-vindication, they can have much hope in Allah’s Infinite Mercy and that they are or will be forgiven. What a silly, self-deceptive excuse is this “30 year old young lady” story? The lady should not delude herself with self-complacency to later find, on the Day of Qiyaamah, her treachery around her neck like a dead albatross for all and sundry to behold. Both of them should feel themselves to be dirty – filthy. The attainment of purity from their filth is no easy task. It requires repeated Taubah and self imposition of penances. But then too, effacement from memory of the treachery is well nigh impossible. Only Allah Ta’ala can help in this situation. The Maulana’s apology to the lady is stupid and baseless bunkum. What is there to apologize to her when she is the co-partner in the wickedness. Forgiveness must be sought from only Allah Ta’ala. We fail to understand this stupid concept of apology to the one with whom adultery was committed. Both are zaanis (adulterers) in the crime. They have no option other than to repeatedly renew their Taubah. A scrambled egg cannot be unscrambled. The damage is done. Now remains only regret, Istighfaar, hope and struggling to gain greater proximity to Allah Ta’ala. This is what particularly the Maulana should do, using his knowledge, wisdom and taqwa, and the lady should simply drench her musalla with tears of blood. May Allah Ta’ala have mercy on both and on us all. No one is safe from the enemy- nafs and shaitaan. Our castigation is not from a pedestal. It is not to make them despair of Allah’s mercy. It is to jolt them into realizing what they have perpetrated. It is clear to us that they have as yet not fully understood the villainy of their treachery. Their self-diagnosis is wholly deficient, and this contaminates their Taubah.
Again we say that it is not contempt which underlies our reprimand. The one who offers naseehat from a high pedestal is worse than this treacherous couple. He is a veritable shaitaan giving vent to his takabbur. The naasih who proffers advice should always bear in mind what Hadhrat Nabi Yusuf (Alayhis salaam) said:
“I do not proclaim my nafs to be pure, for verily, the nafs is a great commander of evil except the one on whom Allah has mercy.” (Qur’aan)
Our harshness is only to jolt the two miscreants. It is for their own goodness in this dunya and the Aakhirah. If they misconstrue it, the consequences for them on the Day of Qiyaamah are too ghastly to contemplate. May Allah Ta’ala forgive us all and save us from the evil of our nafs and the snares of Iblees.

A WOMAN’S KUFR DEMANDS

Trading her Imaan for the crumbs of the dunya, an estranged wife tendered the following proposal to her husband for terminating the marriage: (Our comments in bold in brackets) “I would like to inform you that I have sought legal advice and I am fully aware of what my legal rights are, so we have one of two options: We can legally divorce amicably or alternatively, we can take the matter to court. I would like to divorce amicably, but should you decide to take the route of the latter option, I have been informed that in terms of section 7 (3) of the Divorce Act, estates are to be divided in terms of the financial situations of the parties. (Taking the matter to the kuffaar court and seeking the kufr benefits of the kufr acts of law are haraam.) I was a homemaker for 17 y e a r s ( B e i n g a ‘homemaker’ was your Waajib obligation as demanded by the sacred Nikah contract. You had not bestowed any favour whatsoever to your husband by being a ‘homemaker’. You had only favoured yourself.) I have been left with nothing. (A person will have only whatever Allah Ta’ala has predestined for him/her. Your inordinate greed for haraam money and enlisting the kuffaar court to extort haraam from your husband is the evidence for the kufr in your heart.) You are a CA which shows the court that you CAN AFFORD maintenance. (After Talaaq, the man is responsible for your maintenance during the Iddat period if you are in the marital home. He will be responsible for the maintenance of his children in terms of the Shariah, not according to the exploitive decree of the kuffaar court.) However, regardless of what is going on between the two of us, I would like to maintain a level of respect because we share three children together. (There can be no level of ‘respect’ when you are pursuing the path of exploitation and extortion with the aid of the kuffaar court.) Please agree to the following proposal: 1. Please stop all communication through the children, please contact me timeously and directly through email or WhatsApp in future. It is affecting the children negatively and if you continue to do so, I will take the matter to children’s court. (You have absolutely no right to prevent the father from having communication with his children. If you are not an immoral woman, then while you will have the right of custody over the minor children, their father will remain the Guardian. You have no right to make any decisions regarding the children without the approval of the father. You are only the custodian, not the guardian. You have no right to dictate your stupid, haraam conditions.) 2. In terms of maintenance for the children, I would like R7500 per child per month, this is exclusive of school fees and medical aid, but inclusive of water, lights, rent, fuel, groceries, clothing, medical bills, entertainment, etc. (You cannot decide the maintenance amount. You are an exploiter, an extortionist and a contemptible gold-digger. An independent assessment must be made by responsible persons to decide what are the basic needs of the children. Maintenance will then be determined according to the Shariah not according to your lust, fulfilment of which you are seeking via the kuffaar court. Furthermore, if the father is averse to his children attending these immoral secular schools, you may not send them to their moral destruction, and you may not claim that he pays such haraam fees. It is the father’s right to decide on the expenses and the avenues of expenditure. You do not have such rights.) 3. Rehabilitation maintenance for myself, an amount of R5000 per month for two years. 4. A vehicle to transport the children, preferably the Audi, because that is the car I was using when we were living together. (If you are a drug addict, then get yourself rehabilitated at your own expense. Your ex-husband is not responsible for any type of rehabilitation expenses. Furthermore, he is responsible for expenses only for the Iddat period. Thereafter your male relatives have to maintain you, or if you are a lewd street woman, then go work and earn. Your demand for a vehicle is ludicrous. Your ex-husband’s stupidity of having provided you with a vehicle is now rebounding on him. Since he had aided you in sin by having provided you with a haraam car, he has now to suffer your haraam demand.) Please lemme know of your decision by Tuesday, 23rd February 2021 by no later than 1pm. If I have not received an answer by then. I will be left with no choice but to take the matter further. (Yes you are free to carve your pathway straight to Jahannam). Many women are purchasing kufr and ruining their Aakhirat for the sake of worldly carrion by enlisting the aid of the kuffaar courts to extort haraam money from their ex-husbands. This naseehat is only for such women who do have Imaan, but due to ignorance and misadvised by morons, they take the route of the kuffaar court to suck haraam money from their ex-husbands. Women who believe that they have Imaan should understand that according to the Shariah, the position is as follows: (1) The ex-wife is entitled to maintenance only for the Iddat period. Thereafter she ceases being the responsibility of her exhusband. (2) She is the custodian of the minor children. When a boy reaches 8 years, custody is transferred to the father, and when a girl is close to buloogh, the mother’s right of custody ends. (3) The father remains the Guardian. The mother has no right of making decisions for the children without the approval of the father. (4) The father has visitation rights at all times. A neutral venue should be arranged where he may visit his children. (5) It is the obligation of the father to maintain his children. The expenses (Continued on page 8) for the basic needs are his obligation although it is understood that he will spend more on his children within his means. But the mother may not demand money for expenditure for such activities which according to the Shariah are not permissible. (6) If the mother refuses to relinquish custody when her right has terminated, then the father will have the right to withhold maintenance from the children. The above is a brief summary of rights and obligations when a separation takes place. However, if the father is unfit or immoral, certain of his rights may be denied while some rights may be curtailed.

NIKAH THROUGH ZOOM OR WHATSAPP VIDEO

Q. A new trend that many people are involved in is, Nikah through Zoom or whatsapp video. In present lockdown conditions this method of nikah are becoming widespread. Some Imams seem readily available to perform these nikahs. There are two scenarios quite common:
1) Imam sitting in his house and bride and groom sitting in their own respective homes. (Bride in her house and groom
in his house). Both having witnesses present in their homes.
2) Imam sitting in the bride’s house with witnesses and the groom sitting in his own house with witnesses.
In these scenarios is nikah valid or invalid. In which scenarios will nikahs be valid?

A. Marriages performed in this manner are not valid. No scenario is valid. They will be living in the state of adultery.

A CONFIRMED MURTAD

Q. If a person says the following, is he still a Muslim?

  1. Stoning is not part of Shariah. He goes on to give explanation that some commentators of the Quran included the Hadith about stoning. And they need to interpret one in light of another. He also says they said there was a verse in Quran whose recitation was abrogated but the ruling remained. He says that some people said that you can’t have Hadith abrogating the Quran.
  2. Shariah laws like cutting of the hands are not applicable today. He goes on to say that we read that when Isa (AS) comes back then he will abolish the jizya. So he explains that it depends on the time and place.
  3. There is no apostasy law ( I think he means no death penalty). He explains that there is no compulsion in religion and so the Hadith may not be authentic or it would mean that the Hadith applied to a certain circumstance in the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
  4. He feels that the ‘Muslim countries’ should be ruled by majority (democracy).
  5. He believes that transgenders can marry.
  6. He says because we believe that Isa (AS) is a prophet and so during Christmas we should have lectures etc to honour the birth of Isa (AS).
  7. You can believe in evolution theory.
  8. You can give interest in the case of a mortgage as it is difficult nowadays.
  9. He believes there is something like black magic but he says that if people had the power today then they would use
    it to change governments etc.
  10. He says Non Muslims can go to Jannah if they do good actions within their range.
  11. He says if you follow the Prophet (SAW) in the minor things then often times we lose the bigger picture. The minor things are taken from Hadith. I think he meant that the bigger picture is to submit to Allah.
  12. He explains crucify as a method of killing but he says that in the case of Isa (AS), Isa (AS) was crucified but not to the point that he was killed. Then he quoted some Tafsir book.
  13. He is friends with pro LGBGTQ priest.
    A. A man holding these clear-cut beliefs of kufr is termed Akfarul Kaafireen, i.e. he is among greatest of the kuffaar, perhaps worse than Fir’oun and Iblees.
    In this era the Ummah abounds with kuffaar of this category. They masquerade as Muslims whilst every capillary in their body pulsates with kufr. One does not have to be an Aalim to understand the kufr of people of this kind. Their kufr is a conspicuous exhibition which pours out from every aperture of their bodies and from every pore on their skins.

DON’T TRUST YOUR FATHER-IN-LAW!

Question

I went to give my father-in-law some documents in his room. He was alone. As I handed him the documents, he caught me around my waist and began fondling my breasts. His actions were definitely done with lust and with an evil intention. However, he did not get the opportunity of touching my bare body. I broke away from him and said that his behaviour was unacceptable, and I ran out of his house. He is now very apologetic and remorseful for his actions. What is the state of my Nikah? Was-salaam

Answer

If your evil father-in-law had not fondled any bare part of your body, then your Nikah is still valid.

Since he had committed this heinous act of immorality with you, do understand that it is no longer permissible for you to be in his presence alone. Do not greet him nor respond to his salaam. Stay far, very far from this scoundrel. He is a dangerous beast. His lust blinded him to the consequences which would have ensured if he had touched any bare part of your body. You would have become haraam for your husband.

These kinds of concupiscent misdemeanours are not exceptions. Too much of this filth occurs when caution is thrown overboard. It should be understood well that shahwat (lust) for one’s daughter-in-law always lies dormant in a man. If she had not married his son, nikah would have been valid with him (i.e. with the man who is now her father-in-law).

In view of the existence of lust which lies dormant, the danger is real when caution is cast overboard. For this reason a man is not a valid mahram for his daughter-in-law for a journey, nor should they be alone, nor should she be dressed provocatively in his presence. The need is for total precaution. Full Hijaab, except the face, should be maintained for the father-in-law.

The type of filth as mentioned in the question is in fact a norm in today’s society.

Don’t ever trust your father-in-law. Don’t be trusting! Such misplaced trust is a fatal blunder fraught with disastrous consequences which will ruin your life and the life of families. Don’t be stupid! Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Al-hamwul Maut.”, i.e. a woman’s brother-in-law is her ‘death’. She must beware of him more than even total strangers. The Fuqaha have brought the father-in-law within the purview of ‘Al-Hamw’. He too constitutes the ‘death’ of his daughter-in-law, and worse.

Therefore, do not trust him even if he is a Maulana or a Buzroog, be he a genuine Aalim or a genuine Buzrug. We say: Do not trust him. When shahwat (lust) grips him, all his knowledge, wisdom, taqwa and buzrugiyat evaoparte into thin air. His brain becomes jarred with the lust of his nafs. Imaam Ghazaali (Rahmatullah alayh) said that when a man is trapped in his lust for a woman, 80% of his brain cells become inoperative. Therefore, do not trust him! He becomes a dangerous scoundrel.

It is impossible for men deficient or lacking in true Taqwa and Khauf-e-Ilaahi (Fear for Allah) to maintain intellectual equilibrium and sagacity when overwhelmed by shahwat. The Mashaaikh say:

“Verily, Allah loves a discerning gaze at the time of doubt, and Allah loves a kaamil (perfect) Aql (intelligence) at the time of permeation of lust.”

It is extremely rare, in fact impossible in this era of fitnah, for even a genuine Buzrug to measure up to this moral maxim and acquit himself with a kaamil aql when shahwat devours him. So be on the safe side – do not trust him! Do not trust anyone! Most of these men camoflauged with the outer façade of beards, kurtahs, and turbans are scoundrels in the domain of morality. Therefore, do not be deceived by the external cover of piety.

When this is the rotten state of even so-called people of the Deen, and of even true Ulama and Mashaaikh, what conclusion should be drawn about the rubbish modernists who masquerade as Muslims while their hearts are saturated with kufr?

Insha-Allah, in one of our future articles we shall tell you the story of a genuine Buzrug, an acknowledged Shaikhul Hadith, Mufassir, etc., of recent times – of our era. He has left this dunya. May Allah Ta’ala have mercy on him and forgive him. Insha-Allah, without identifying him, and with changing some of the details to deflect recognition from his identity, we shall tell you the story of 80% of his brain cells having become inoperative. His name is an absolute bombshell. May Allah Ta’ala save us fussaaq and fujjaar from the evils of our nafs and the snares of Iblees.

HARAAM TABLEEGH

Q. A Couple is married for 7 years. The husband is constantly in jamaat all over the world and country. He leaves his wife unattended physically, financially and emotionally. When addressed, he says your reward is in the Aakhirat. The
ameer of the jamaat sees nothing wrong with this behaviour. The wife cannot endure this any longer. Is this a valid basis for a talaaq? The wife is desperate for advice.


A. In the scenario mentioned by you, the wife has a valid reason to ask for Talaaq although there is much greater merit in adopting Sabr to tolerate and bear the injustices of the husband. The husband in this case is guilty of violating his family obligations imposed on him by the Shariah. The ameer of the jamaat is a jaahil. He lacks understanding and
knowledge of the Shariah, hence he speaks bunkum and haraam. It is this type of ghulu’ (haraam and stupid extremism) which has caused the decline, fall, moral and spiritual degradation of the Tabligh Jamaat. Ghulu’ permeates all ranks of the Jamaat.
It is Waajib for the husband who leaves home for a valid, halaal journey to ensure that there is a reliable (non-faasiq)
mahram to attend to the needs of his family during his absence. It is Waajib to leave sufficient means for the home expenses. The husband who deliberately defaults in these Waajib requisites is accursed. His entire journey, regardless
of it being for tabligh, is under the Cloud of Divine Wrath.

A HUSBAND CAN NEVER RAPE HIS WIFE

A husband can never rape his wife. when a man marries a woman and pays her mahr, she becomes lawful for him. If she refuses conjugal relations in spite of being in his nikah and after having accepted the mahr, then the la’nat (curse) of Allah and the malaaikah descend on her. The laws of the kuffaar are satanic. A woman who denies conjugal relations to her husband is termed naashizah (grossly disobedient). She is not entitled to receive maintenance from her husband. The case of husband- rape in America is a reflection of the corruption and immorality of kufr society.

If a Muslim’s wife refuses to have conjugal relations with her husband without valid shar’i reason, e.g. she is not sick, then he is allowed to force himself on her. However, living in a kufr country one should be careful of being charged for statutory rape. If the woman is of such a low degree of imaan that she will not hesitate to report the matter to the police. If she is such a woman, then the best course would be to divorce her. When a wife refuses to fulfil the rights of the marriage and refuses to permit conjugal relations, then it is no use living with such a woman. This advice of divorce is given if it has become the practice of the woman to refuse conjugal relations. Howerer, if her refusal is an occasional thing, one should not take drastic steps.

Ahadith regarding certain evil qualities of Women

Question
Is this Hadith reliable?

إن الفساق هم أهل النار قيل: يا رسول الله، ومن الفساق؟ قال: النساء قال: رجل يا رسول الله، أولسن أمهاتنا، وأخواتنا، وأزواجنا؟ قال: بلى، ولكنهم إذا أعطين لم يشكرن، وإذا ابتلين لم يصبرن

Answer

Imam Ahmad and Imam Tabarani (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdur Rahman ibn Shibl (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with reliable chains. Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has also declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) concurs.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 3 pg. 428. Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 394 and vol. 4 pg. 73, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 604)

Translation

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Certainly the ‘fussaq’ are the inhabitants of Jahannam. When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was asked, ‘Who are the ‘fussaq’, He replied, ‘They are ‘Women’. A Sahabi then asked, ‘O Rasulullah, aren’t they our mothers, sisters and spouses’? Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied, ‘Certainly! However, when they are given something they do not appreciate and when they are put through a trial, they do not have patience.”

Another Hadith Regarding the Detrimental Characteristics of Women
Question

Kindly provide the correct Arabic wording and authenticity of the following narration:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has said: ‘The majority of those I saw therein [i.e. in the fire] were women who spread secrets when entrusted; when they are asked, they are stingy, and when they ask others, they do so in a demanding way.’

Husayn [ibn Muhammad, when narrating this Hadith] said [that Rasulullah – sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam – also added]: ‘And when they are given something, they are not appreciative.’

Answer

This is part of a lengthy narration which Imam Ahmad and others (rahimahumullah) have recorded on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 3 pgs. 352-353; Also see: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pgs. 87-88)

Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration with the following wording:

وأكثر من رأيت فيها النساء اللاتي إن ائتمن أفشين وإن يسئلن بخلن وإن يسألن الحفن- قال حسين: وإن أعطين لم يشكرن

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded and authenticated a very similar Hadith [with identical wording] on the authority of Sayyiduna Ubay ibn Ka’b (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has also concurred.

(Mustadrak Hakim with the Talkhis of Imam Dhahabi, vol. 4 pg. 605)

HADITH CAUTIONING WOMEN FROM SHOWING INGRATITUDE
Question

Please mention the Hadith which states that despite the husband taking care of the wife to the best of his ability, she complains and is ungrateful.

Answer

You are probably referring to the following Hadith recorded in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim:

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “…I was shown Jahannam and most of its inhabitants were women who were practising kufr (disbelief/ingratitude).’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was asked, ‘Did they practise disbelief in Allah?’ He replied, ‘They were ungrateful to their husbands and ungrateful when any good was done for them. If you were always good to one of them and then she saw something [that she disliked], she would say, “I have never seen any good in you at all!”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 29-1052-5197 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 907)

Note: These Ahadith have highlighted some causes for women entering Jahannam in general.

This does not denote that all women are doomed for Jahannam. Just as there are several Hadiths that warn men of Jahannam.

In fact, this should be considered a favour of Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) in having informed women of what bad qualities to stay free from in order to attain salvation from Jahannam.
