A Tabligh Jamaat member, complaining about the haraam filth and mess of the Jamaat’s merrymaking in the Musaajid, writes:

“There was a tabligh programme at the Masjid in Tongaat on the 16th of March. The Jamaat comprised of a few elders from the markaz Masjid Hilaal. The Jamaat arrived on Thursday 14th March and left on Sunday 17th. On the 16th was a big programme for the Ijtima fikr. Over 150 people were fed in the Masjid.
I helped in arranging the meals and serving. Also assisted with the clean up. A few brothers were given the responsibility to clean up the kitchen and all the dishes.
This Wednesday the 27th, the trustee informed me that the kitchen was in a mess. The tea jug has worms. The fridge has cockroaches, the degs(big pots) have maghots.
On the 19th of march I enquired from the brothers who had washed some of the dishes as to whether the kitchen was clean . They replied in the affirmative saying everything was done. However they washed the dishes but left the sink in a mess. The fridge was still in a mess with food that the Jamaat had left behind even though there is a sign on the fridge saying “Attention all Jamaats, please ensure the fridge is clear before you leave ”
The trustees have now put up a notice that no cooking or feeding is to take place in the Masjid kitchen or basement. What is the ruling regarding Jamaats eating and cooking in the Masjid? What is the ruling of feeding the awaam (the public) in the Masjid after a program? Please find attached some pictures of the deplorable state of the kitchen.”

(End of the Brother’s lament)
What the Tabligh Jamaat knows of the Sunnah is scandalously little. For them the ‘sunnah’ is to introduce bid’ah, violate the ahkaam of the Shariah and to flaunt only the beard, turban and kurtah. They are not even conscious of the kabeerah sin of wearing the trousers on and below the ankles.

Regarding the filth and mess described in the Brother’s letter, the following Hadith should be a salubrious lesson:

“Verily, Allah is CLEAN. He loves cleanliness. Therefore clean your afniyah.”

Afniyah is the portion outside, infront of one’s house. This is not one’s private property, yet Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ordered that even this outside piece of ground should be maintained clean. From this fact it should be easy for genuine Muslims to understand how much more is the need to keep one’s home clean, and how much more is it necessary to keep the Musaajid clean, and how much more important it is to keep the physical body and the heart clean. The heart has to be purified from all the filth, especially the type of filth which has induced the two Tabligh Jamaat factions to wage shaitaani ‘jihad’ against one other.

The nauseating filth and mess described in the letter is an adequate and a vivid commentary of the filth – moral and spiritual filth – in the hearts of these people who flaunt their so-called ‘sunnah’, and who vociferously proclaim their slogan of ‘yaqeen’, and proudly believe that they are correctly in the ‘path of Allah’. When they are ignorant of the very basics of Tahaarat, what can they ever understand of Yaqeen and the Path of Allah?

The mess in the Musjid reveals what goes on in their brains and hearts. The disgorgement of physical filth mirrors the filth in the heart. A sure sign of their deviation and total lack of Deeni understanding will be the animosity which they will now display for the Brother who has reported this haraam episode of filth and mess.

They have absolutely no regard for Allah’s bounty of food. They do not have the haziest idea of Nazaafat (Cleanliness) and Tahaarat hence they left the Musjid premises in such a shaitaani mess. Shaitaan loves filth and mess. Thus they were pleasing the devil with their sin of messing the Musjid’s premises.

The Trustees acted correctly. They should not permit the Jamaats to eat and feed in the Musjid premises. They are too filthy, and they do not have the faintest idea of Islam’s concept of cleanliness – purity of body and heart.

The Musjid is not a venue for merrymaking. Feeding the public in the Musjid is haraam. The Tablighis have transformed their programmes into wedding-type merrymaking. After their programmes they resort to gluttony and indulge in raucous conduct. They have no regard and no respect for the House of Allah Ta’ala. They laugh loudly inside the Musjid proper, and engage in handshaking, embracing and light, stupid banter. The Musjid is not a place for such nonsense.

The Jamaats are notorious for conversation inside the Musjid. We are not referring to bayaans. They engage in conversation which effaces their good deeds. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Conversation inside the Musjid consumes good deeds just as cattle consume grass.”

They should not meet people, shake hands and embrace inside the Musjid. Such acts should be practised outside the Musjid. At times their loud talk in the Musjid is a cacophony of noises. The Tabligh Jamaat has indeed degenerated into an extremely noxious cesspool of inequity physically, morally and spiritually, hence their shaitaani ‘jihad’ to eliminate each other – to eliminate whoever does not subscribe to their ghulu’ (haraam bigotry).

Q. Is it permissible to allow non-Muslims into a Musjid? In response to this question, the Darul Ifta of Azaadville said:

“If entering the Masjid is permitted for a Kaafir as explained above, there is no harm in them viewing the Masjid particularly when done with the Niyyah of giving them Dawat towards Islam. Obviously, giving them Dawat means that we simply invite them towards the oneness of Allah and the Risaalat (prophethood) of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and not to engage in any sort of interfaith dialogues as has become rife in various places.” (End of Azaadville’s fatwa)
A. In several articles have we explained the impermissibility of allowing non-Muslims into the Musjid. These articles are available on our website. It will suffice here to say that the Darul Ifta has erred in its view. Da’wat to the kuffaar is never reliant on inviting them to the Musjid.

Although the Mufti Sahib says: “not to engage in any sort of interfaith dialogues as has become rife in various places”, he has portrayed short-sightedness and lack of wisdom. Shaitaan is a cunning ustaadh. He initiates his plot with permissibilities, in fact, with even masnoon acts. Only purified Aql fortified with the noor of Taqwa is able to detect the subtle snares of Iblees. To save people from zina, Allah Ta’ala commanded them to abstain from such permissibilities which lead to zina, hence the Qur’aan Majeed states: “Do not come near to zina.”

The Mufti Sahib has not applied his mind in his fatwa. Non-Muslims entering the Musaajid in our era are not rare occasions or isolated acts. They are nowadays invading the Musaajid with the consent of the trustees, the ulama-e-soo’, and short-sighted Muftis, in droves. Tourist buses bring droves of kuffaar wallowing in janaabat and kufr, and dressed lewdly – men and women – to do some sight-seeing in the Musaajid. The molvis in the Musaajid dupe themselves with their ‘dawah’ stupid argument. The male musallis stare lustfully at the kuffaar women dressed immodestly. The entire atmosphere in the Musjid is polluted with fisq, fujoor and najaasat.

The first step in the plot of Iblees was to convince the molvis and muftis with the ‘dawah’ chimera. Gradually, it developed into interfaith dialogue right inside the Musjid. Then the situation deteriorated. Instead of giving them da’wah, the kuffaar give da’wah of Christianity to Muslims right inside the Musjid. This was recently a shaitaani accomplishment in a Musjid in England.

Degenerating further into the cauldron of kufr, the priest ridiculed the Qur’aan Majeed and denigrated Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) right inside the Musjid which had a full-house of musallis, all listening attentively to the kufr preachings of the priests and the insults to Islam. Not a word of protest escaped the lips of a single musalli on that vile occasion created by the Imaam of the Musjid.

The situation has deteriorated further. Now Muslims in New Zealand, drunk with bootlicking and fearful of their own shadows, have invited Christians to sing hymns of shirk and kufr right inside the Musjid. And, the situation is set to deteriorate further when actual cross-worship by Muslims will take place inside the Musjid. Anyone who denies this reality is a kaafir because this is Rasulullah’s prediction. Qiyaamah is in close proximity of our era.

We have today reached this deplorable state of kufr and shirk being accepted inside the Musaajid as a consequence of zig-zag and downright baatil fatwas issued by moron muftis and the ulama-e-soo’ who have their own pernicious agendas. In fact, they are without Imaan. They have absolutely no fear for Allah Ta’ala. Thus they fear their shadows and bootlick the kuffaar.

It is indeed lamentable that Muftis, even sincere ones, of this era are so disgracefully short-sighted to fail to discern the danger in issuing fatwas based on just any permissibility. They lack the ability of applying the mind, and that is because they have hitherto failed to understand the meaning of Taqwa for themselves. Today, branding carrion as haraam, is a ‘taqwa’ not fatwa for these muftis who have lost the Path – Siraatul Mustaqeem.

Once when Hadhrat Shah Abdul Aziz (Rahmatullah alayh) was giving a bayaan to his mureeds and some Ulama, two persons from the public entered and sought a fatwa. The one said: ‘Today my friend drank water which was the left-over of an Englishman. What is the fatwa?” Hadhrat Shah Sahib adopting a very sombre attitude said that since this issue was extremely delicate, it will take time to search for the fatwa. He told them to return for the fatwa after a couple of days. The audience consisting of Ulama, was surprised. The fatwa according to the Shariah is simple. If the kaafir’s mouth was paak (taahir), the water remains paak, hence there was no concern. If his mouth was impure due to liquor or haraam food, then obviously the water was impure. Why did Shah Sahib adopt this strange strategy? But no one had the courage to question him.

On the appointed day, the two chaps came for their fatwa. Shah Sahib said: “The fatwa is Tajdeed-e-Imaan (i.e. renewal of Imaan. By implication he had become a murtadd); Tajdeed-e-Nikah (renewal of his marriage).” Shah Sahib furthermore prescribed some penances to be performed as an expiation (kaffarah) for having drunk the water which had touched the lips of the Englishman. The two persons being sincere, were satisfied. They left and observed the prescription and the penalty.

When the surprised Ulama questioned Hadhrat Shah Sahibm, he responded: “By this measure, I have saved their Imaan.”

Muftis should reflect, apply their minds and not acquit themselves like morons enslaved to the nafs. The objective of fatwa is not to ruin the morals of Muslims and to open the avenue for fisq, fujoor, bid’ah and kufr. A Mufti should be far-sighted. He should be able to fathom the one who poses a question and not pander to the vagaries of people. But bootlicking has become an ingrained disease in the Ulama of today, in even the sincere ones, hence they all are in line for Allah’s Athaab. About them, the Qur’aan Majeed says:

“Beware of such a punishment which will overtake not only the transgressors among you.” It will overtake and utterly destroy even the molvis and the buzroogs who excelled in bootlicking and accommodating baatil.

The muftis who have legalized entry into the Musaajid for kuffaar wallowing in janaabat and kufr are the culprits who are laying the foundation for cross-worship in the Musaajid.

16 Rajab 1440 – 23 March 2019

The Message of Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) to those Engaged in the Effort of Da’wat and Tableegh

The Message of Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) to those Engaged in the Effort of Da’wat and Tableegh
On one occasion, many people associated with the effort of Da’wat and Tableegh had gathered in the musjid of Nizaamuddeen after the fajr salaah. At that time, Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) was at the end of his life and extremely weak. Moulana’s condition was such that even while lying in his bed, it was difficult for him to speak more than a few words. While in this condition, Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) urgently called one of his special attendants and instructed him to deliver the following message to all those present:

Your engaging in the service of Deen is greatly rewarding. However, all your effort and striving while travelling from place to place in the path of Allah Ta’ala will be of no avail if you do not acquire the correct knowledge of Deen and remain engaged in the zikr of Allah Ta’ala at all times (zikrullah refers to fulfilling the commands of Shari’ah at every moment in one’s life together with engaging in zikrullah). The correct knowledge of Deen and the zikr of Allah Ta’ala are like the two wings of a plane without which the plane cannot fly. In fact, if people are negligent in regard to acquiring the correct knowledge of Deen and engaging in zikr, there is a great fear that this effort will later on become a means of opening a new door of misguidance and fitnah.

Without acquiring the correct knowledge of Deen, a person will only have Islam and Imaan in name and he will only be practicing Deen as a custom and ritual. On the other hand, if a person has the correct knowledge of Deen, but it is not coupled with the zikr of Allah Ta’ala, then this knowledge will be without noor. Similarly, if one engages in abundant zikr, but it is not complimented with the correct knowledge of Deen, there is great danger of this person going astray.

In essence, it is through the zikr of Allah Ta’ala that one’s knowledge of Deen will be blessed with noor. If zikr is not accompanied with the correct knowledge of Deen, the true, desired benefit and effect of the zikr will not be seen. In fact, it is often witnessed that people who lack the correct knowledge of Deen become the victims of shaitaan who then uses them to spread misguidance among others.

Thus, the importance and necessity of acquiring the correct knowledge of Deen and engaging in zikr should never be overlooked and trivialized. Rather, special attention should always be shown to acquiring the correct knowledge of Deen and fulfilling the commands of Shari’ah at every moment in one’s life together with engaging in zikrullah. If special attention is not shown to these two aspects, your effort of Da’wat and Tableegh will be fruitless and become nothing more than travelling and touring in the world, and — may Allah forbid! — you will all suffer a severe loss in the Hereafter.



A spurious and thoroughly misleading argument to dupe unwary Muslims is the contention by inter-faith molvis and sheikhs that non-Muslim envoys from tribes and nations would meet Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) for dialogue. By this argument they attempt to befuddle Muslims into believing that such ‘dialogue’ was inter-faith discussion. This idea is furthest from the truth. In fact, it is a blatant falsehood.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) never had inter-faith dialogue with non-Muslim envoys. They came to seek information about only Islam. They did not come to Madinah to propagate their kufr and shirk to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). They did not come to promote their kufr ideas of ‘spirituality’ as is the case at inter-faith seminars.
When the envoys arrived, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) proffered to them the unadulterated Tauheed of the Qur’aan without affording them a moment for stating the case of their kufr religions. The envoy-argument is the effect of either plain stupidity and ignorance or deliberate deception calculated to hoodwink Muslims into supporting the kufr inter-faith movement.
The leaders of the Christians and bishops of Najraan came to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). On their arrival, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) presented Islam to them. The bishops responded: “We were ‘Muslimeen’ (submitters to the truth) before you.” Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), without resorting to cordiality and niceties, said to them: “You have spoken a lie. Three things prevent you from Islam: Your claim that Allah betook a son; your prostration to the cross, and your consumption of the flesh of swines.”
The bishops then asked: “Who was the father of Isaa?” Allah Ta’ala revealed the following aayaat in response to their baseless disputation: “Verily, the similitude of Isaa by Allah is like Aadam whom He created from sand. Then He said: ‘Be!’, and he (Aadam) came into existence.(59)
The Truth is from your (Muhammad’s) Rabb. Therefore do not be from among those who doubt. (60) Those who dispute with you after the Knowledge (of the Haqq) has come to you, say (to them): ‘Come! We shall summon your sons and our sons; your wives and our wives; yourselves and ourselves. Then we shall altogether call (to Allah) to invoke His Curse on the liars.” (61) Verily, this is the true narrative. There is no god but Allah, and verily, He is The Mighty, The Wise. (62) If now they turn their backs (renege from the Truth), then verily Allah is well aware of the people of mischief.” (63)
(Surah Aal-e-Imraan)
The Message of Tauheed is delivered sharply, directly without ambiguity or inter-faith dialogue. The falsehood stated by the non-Muslim envoys is rebutted, leaving absolutely no scope for the assertion of baatil. The Christians are called liars on their face by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) for having stated their beliefs of kufr. But our shallow-minded molvies and sheikhs sit silently while the kuffaar din their ears with kufr, shirk and atheism and while they (the apologists) silently endure the kufr being injected into the hearts of the Muslim audience, many of whom suffer from gross deficiencies in their Imaan.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) did not afford the Christians the slightest opportunity to present their religion. He summarily rejected them as ‘liars’ and he presented three evils as the basis of their falsehood.
The bishops of Najraan further asked: “What do you have to offer?” Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Islam or Jizyah or war.” This was the dialogue which Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) conducted with the Christians. He did not join them in joint-propagation of kufr and shirk for the sake of presenting Islam. He clearly stated the inescapable alternatives to Islam.
Although the muballigh is unable to present the alternatives which Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had thrown into the faces of the bishops, it is at least not expected of molvis and sheikhs to sit silently through a session of kufr propagation waiting like hungry dogs for a bone. If the session is not devoted to the propagation of exclusively Islam, then it is a deception of shaitaan into which he has ensnared the shallow-minded muballigh.
Jarjees was the commander of the Byzantine army. Jarjees had sent an emissary to the Muslim camp requesting that an envoy be sent to them (the Christian camp) for dialogue. Jarjees wanted to ascertain the objective of the Muslim invasion. Hadhrat Rabeeah Bin Aamir, a senior Sahaabi, (radhiyallahu anhu) volunteered to meet the Christian commander for dialogue. The commander of the Muslim army said: “O Rabeeah! I fear for you (the deception) of those people. You had slain a chief among them (during the battle) yesterday.”
Rabeeah (radhiyallahu anhu) recited the following Qur’aanic aayat: “Say: Nothing will befall us except what Allah has decreed for us. He is our Protector, and on Allah should the Mu’minoon have trust.” If you see treachery against me, then attack them.” So saying, he mounted his horse and rode together with the envoy until they arrived at the camp of the Roman army.
When they neared the tent of their commander, the envoy said to Hadhrat Rabeeah: “Honour the army of the king. Descend from your horse.” Hadhrat Rabeeah said: “I shall not trade honour for humiliation, and shall not hand over my horse to anyone nor shall I descend from my horse except at the entrance of the tent. If this is unacceptable, I shall return from whence I came because I was not sent to you. On the contrary, you were sent to us.”
The envoy informed the Romans of the stance of Hadhrat Rabeeah. Some of them said: “The Arab is truthful in his statement. Let him descend wherever he wishes.” Hadhrat Rabeeah (radhiyallahu anhu) alighted from his horse at the entrance of the tent of the commander. He held the reins of his horse in his hands whilst his weapons were with him.
Jarjees: “O Brother of the Arabs! There was no nation weaker than you to us. We never imagined that you would fight with us. What do you want from us?”
Rabeeah: “We desire that you accept our Deen and that you proclaim our proclamation (i.e. Kalimah Tauheed). If you reject, then pay to us Jizyah and you will be in (our) subjugation, otherwise the sword will decide between you and us.”
Jarjees: “What has prevented you from advancing against the Persians whilst you are claiming some affinity with us (i.e. by virtue of us being the Ahl-e-Kitaab)?”
Rabeeah: “We began with you because you are closer to us than the Persians. Verily, Allah Ta’ala has commanded us in His Book: “O People of Imaan! Fight those kuffaar who are near to you and there should be firmness in you (in this regard).”
Jarjees: “Will you enter into a pact with us? We shall give every man among you one dinaar of gold and ten bushels of grain. You should write a peace treaty between us and yourselves.”
Rabeeah: “There is no scope for this. Between you and us is nothing except the sword or payment of Jizyah or acceptance of Islam.”
Absolutely no quarter was shown by the Sahaabah when presenting Islam to non-Muslims. There was no inter-faith dialogue. The Dialogue was a one way and a direct presentation of Tauheed without any frills and fancies associated with the inter-faith bungling in which short-sighted molvis and sheikhs become embroiled for giving effect to their motives of self-aggrandizement which they believe the cheap kuffaar press publicity offers them.
In their presentation of Tauheed from only the stage of Islam, not from a platform of joint-propagation of kufr and shirk, the Sahaabah acted in obedience to the Qur’aanic command: “(The true Mu’mineen are) those who deliver the Message of Allah and (in so doing) they fear Him, and they fear none besides Allah. And, Allah suffices as a Reckoner.” (Ahzaab, 39)
Roomaas was the Christian general who was appointed governor of Basra by the Roman emperor. He was an expert of the Injeel and history. Christians would come from far and wide to listen to his wise discourses. Hadhrat Ubaidah Bin Jarraah (radhiyallahu anhu), the commander of the Muslim army despatched Hadhrat Shurahbeel Bin Hasanah (radhiyallahu anhu) to present Islam to him and the Christian nation. The following dialogue took place:
Roomaas: “Who are you?”
Shurahbeel: “I am a companion of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the Nabi who was an Ummi, Haashami, and Quraishi whom the Tauraah and Injeel describe.”
Roomaas: “What has Allah done with him?”
Shurahbeel: “Allah has taken him unto Him.”
Roomaas: “Who has assumed the reins of power after him?”
Shurahbeel: “Ateeq Bin Abi Quhaafah Bin Bakr Bin Taim Bin Murrah.”
When the dialogue which afforded not the slightest opportunity to Roomaas to present Christianity, came to an end, Hadhrat Shurahbeel (radhiyallahu anhu) proclaimed the Message as follows: “We shall not compromise with you except on one of three things: Either you (Christians) enter into the fold of our Deen or you pay the Jizyah or the sword………. Now return to your people and inform them. There is no alternative to what I have proclaimed to you.”
When the two opposing armies were in close proximity, a very senior priest emerged from the Christian army and called to the Muslims in Arabic to enter into dialogue with him. Hadhrat Khaalid Bin Walid (radhiyallahu anhu) engaged the priest. The following discussion took place:
Priest: “Are you the leader of the people?”
Khaalid: “So do the people think as long as I remain firm in the obedience of Allah and His Rasool. Should I change or diverge, then I shall have no jurisdiction over them nor have (their) obedience.”
Priest: “It is on this account that you have been aided (by Allah) over us. Know that you have entered a land which no king had the courage of interfering or entering. The Persians had invaded and departed in defeat……but you have been aided over us. However, aid (divine aid) will not be forever with you. Our companion Wurdaan (the commander) has sent me to you with the offer of one dinaar, a garment and a turban for everyone of you, and for you a hundred dinaar, a hundred garments and a hundred turbans. Now depart from us with your army, for verily, our army is as numerous as the particles of the sand……………..”
Khaalid: “By Allah! We shall not return except on one of three terms: Either you all enter into our Deen or you pay the Jizyah or war. With regard to you being as numerous as the particles of sand, verily, Allah has promised us aid on the tongue of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and He has revealed it in His Majestic Kitaab. With regard to the dinaars, garments and turbans, know that soon shall we see, if Allah wills, your garments, your cities and your turbans all in our ownership.”
Jablah Bin Aiham was a Christian Arab and the king of his people. The following are excerpts from a dialogue he had with Hadhrat Ubaadah Bin Saamit (radhiyallahu anhu). Jablah was instructed by the Roman general Maahaan to create fear in the hearts of the Muslims. Maahaan said to Jablah: “Go to these people and terrify them with our numerical superiority and instil fear into their hearts with our power. Overwhelm them with your plans.” When Jablah arrived near to the Muslim army camp, he called for a negotiator to be sent to him. Hadhrat Ubaadah Bin Saamit (radhiyallahu anhu) was sent to have dialogue with the Christian king.
Jablah: “O young man! Who are you?”
Ubaadah: “I am a son of Amr Bin Aamir. I am Ubaadah Bin Saamit, a companion of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). What do you intend?”
Jablah: “O Cousin! I have come to you only because I am aware that your people are staunch upholders of family ties. I have come as an advisor. Know that this nation (i.e. the Romans) who is in front of you has such armies which cannot be opposed. In their rear are armies, forts, barracks and wealth……..If this nation defeats you, you will have no refuge other than death, and if they are defeated, they will return to their lands, their armies, treasures and forts. Now depart to your lands peacefully.”
Ubaadah: (After rejecting the scare-tactics of Jablah, Ubaadah said): “O Jablah! I invite you to the Deen of Islam and that you with your nation enter into our Deen and you will be honoured in this world and the Hereafter. Do not be a subject of the Roman scum and vermin, to save yourself from destruction. You are a man from the nobility of the Arabs. Verily, our Deen will remain dominant. Therefore, follow the Path of those who turn to the Truth and acknowledge it. Say: ‘La ilaha il lallaah Muhammadur Rasulullah’. May Allah shower His blessings on him, on his family and his companions…”
Maahaan was the commander-in-chief of the Byzantine forces. Before the battle, Khaalid Bin Walid (radhiyallahu anhu) and several Sahaabah went to meet Maahaan who had adorned the venue of reception in lavish style and pomp. Silken carpets and cushions were spread and chairs were set for the Muslim delegation. When Khaalid arrived with his group, Maahaan was seated on his throne.
When the Sahaabah saw the lavishly adorned venue, they recited Takbeer and praised Allah Ta’ala. They did not sit on the chairs. Pushing aside the chairs and the silken carpet, they sat on the ground.
Maahaan: (Smiling): “O Gathering of Arabs! Why do you spurn our hospitality? Why have you pushed aside the chairs and sat on the ground? Why do you not observe the etiquettes of respect for us?”
Khaalid: “Respect for Allah Ta’ala is superior to respect for you. The carpets of Allah are purer than your carpets, for verily, our Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “The earth has been made a Musjid and a purifier for me.” (Then Khaalid recited the aayat): “From it (sand) did We create you, and into it shall We return you, and from it shall We extract you a second time.”
Maahaan: “Praise is for Allah Who has made our leader, the Spirit, the Maseeh, His Word, and Who has made us the rulers of the best of lands…”
(This speech was abhorrent to Khaalid. He interrupted Maahaan. As he did so, the court orderly said: “Don’t interrupt the talk of the king, brother of the Arabs. Adopt good manners.” But Khaalid refused to maintain silence. He was inflamed by Maahaan’s mention of his false god.)
Khaalid: “All praise is for Allah Who has ordained for us to believe in our Nabi and your Nabi and all the Ambiya. And, He (Allah) has made our leader to whom is entrusted our affairs, like one of us. Allah Ta’ala has made our Ummah one which commands righteousness, prohibits evil, confesses (its) sins, seeks forgiveness from Him, worships Allah Ta’ala Alone, and Who has no partner for Him.”
(Maahaan endeavoured by threats and promises to induce Khaalid Bin Walid – radhiyallahu anhu – to enter into a treaty. However, Khaalid pressed on with the presentation of the Deen.) He said: “Alhamdulillah (Praise unto Allah). There is no god but He.”
Maahaan: “O Arab! You have spoken what is virtue.”
Khaalid: “I bear witness that there is no god, but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger, the one with whom He is pleased, the one whom He has chosen.”
Maahaan: “I do not know if Muhammad is the messenger of Allah or not. Perhaps he is as you say and think.”
Khaalid: “The best of moments and the most virtuous of moments is a moment in which it dawns (on a man) that Allah is the Rabb of all the worlds.”
(After Khaalid’s discourse, Maahaan said):
Maahaan: “I am amazed at your wisdom and insight. I love that you become my friend and brother.”
Khaalid: “If Allah completes what you have said, then you will be most fortunate and then we shall have no discord.”
Maahaan: “How can that be?”
Khaalid: “Say: “Ash-hadual laailaha il lallahu wa anna Muhammadan abduhu wa Rasuluhu” –Isaa, the son of Maryam had given the glad tidings of the Messenger. When you do this, then I am your brother and you are my brother, and I am your friend and your are my friend, and we shall not dispute, except if there is some new development.”
Maahaan: “There is no way for me to enter into your religion.”
Khaalid: “Similarly, there is no way then for friendship with you while you remain on your religion, the religion of deviation (baseless and false)………… We were on the brink of a pit of fire. Then Allah sent to us a Nabi. We recognized his worth and nobility. Allah sent him as a guide and he was rightly guided, a Rasool and a Nabi, a leader and a man of piety. He established Islam with his call and overwhelmed the mushrikeen with his word. He brought to us the Clear Qur’aan and the Straight Path. Allah sealed Prophethood with him. He commanded us with worship of the Rabb of the worlds; that we worship Him and not associate any partner with Him, and that we do not take anyone besides Him as a protector; that we do not appoint a wife for Him, nor a son. He has no partner and no adversary; that we do not prostrate for the sun nor the moon, nor for light nor for fire nor for the cross; that we do not prostrate except for Allah, The One Who has no partner unto Him. We acknowledge the Nubuwwat of our Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and peace and blessings on his family and companions. Allah revealed to him His Word with which our Protector guided us. We thus accepted him and obeyed his commands.
Amongst the things he commanded us is that we wage jihaad against those who do not accept our Deen and do not proclaim what we proclaim – to wage jihaad against those who commit kufr with Allah and associate partners with Allah. Allah The Mighty is our Rabb and High is He above such falsehood. Sleep and slumber do not occur to Him. Whoever follows us is our brother and whatever is for us is for him. Whoever rejects Islam, there shall be jizyah on him, which he has to pay to us whilst he will be a subject (under our domination). When he pays the jizyah, his wealth, blood and children will be protected. Whoever denies Islam and refuses to pay jizyah, then the sword will decide between us and him until Allah Azza Wa Jal ordains His command. And, He is the best of Rulers.
We invite you to these three options besides which there is no other option. Either you all say: ‘We testify that there is no god but Allah The One Who has no partner, and verily Muhammad is His slave and messenger.’, or you pay jizyah.”
Maahaan: “Besides the statement of ‘Lailaha illallaah’, is there anything else?”
Khaalid: “Yes. That you establish Salaat, pay Zakaat, perform Hajj of the Baitul Haraam, wage jihaad against those who commit kufr with Allah, command righteousness, prohibit evil, befriend for Allah’s sake and become enemies for Allah’s sake. And, if you reject this, then there will be war between you and us until Allah bestows His earth to whomever He pleases, and the ultimate victory is for the Muttaqeen.”
Hadhrat Khaalid Bin Walid’s entire speech was a discourse of Tableegh in which he repeatedly emphasised and highlighted Tauheed and the fundamental tenets of Islam without affording the Christian commander the opportunity to propagate his religion. This was not an inter-faith inter-action.

This dialogue took place between the Roman emperor, Heracleus and a group of Sahaabah who were captives of war. The leader of the Sahaabah on this occasion was Hadhrat Dharaar (radhiyallahu anhu).
Heracleus: “I want to question you regarding knowledge. Who among you should I address?”
Dharaar: “Qais Bin Aasim Al-Ansaari (radhiyallahu anhu).”
Qais: “O king! Say whatever you wish to say.”
Heracleus: “How did Wahi descend on your Nabi?”
(Hadhrat Qais – radhiyallahu anhu – presented an elaboration on this subject which Heracleus confirmed with predictions from the Injeel. A Roman chief-bishop was listening to the entire dialogue. When he realized that the emperor was inclining towards Islam, he (the bishop) exclaimed: ‘The person (Nabi) whom Isaa had mentioned was not raised, neither before him nor after him. All of this is false interpretation.’ Interrupting the bishop, Hadhrat Dharaar –radhiyallahu anhu- said:
Dharaar: “You have blatantly lied. This accursed, disgraceful old man has lied. O Roman Dog! You are from among those specimens who had rejected Isaa (alayhis salaam) and you reject the Nubuwwat of our Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Do you not know that Isaa mentioned him (Muhammad) in the Injeel; Musaa mentioned him in the Tauraah, and Daawood mentioned him in the Zaboor? Verily, our Nabi was sent with the best of religions. Allah’s glorious and greatest Kitaab and all revealed Scriptures bear testimony to his Nubuwwat and Risaalat. He is our Nabi, Muhammad Bin Abdullah Bin Abdul Muttalib Al-Makki. But, the veil of kufr prevents you from recognizing (and acknowledging) him.”
Heracleus: “You have displayed bad conduct in this gathering for criticizing the beautiful Christian faith. Who are you (he bellowed)?”
Qais: “This is the Companion of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). This is Dharaar Bin Al-Azwar. Don’t speak about him with evil.”
Heracleus: “Oh! It has reached me that he fights on foot, on horseback, with armour and without armour.”
Qais: “Yes, this is him.”
Then followed complete silence…….The story is long Hadhrat Dharaar (radhiyallahu anhu) was struck 14 times with the sword………………..

Subhaanallaah! And again Subhaanallaah! This was the wonderful, fearless an uncompromising attitude of devotion for the Haqq of Tauheed and the love which the Sahaabah had for Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and this Deen of Islam. They understood no diplomacy, no stratagem of compromise, no dubiosity and no tolerance whatsoever when kufr and shirk were mentioned in their presence. Their lives were ever ready as sacrificial ‘lambs’ at the altar of Tauheed. They were the men about whom the Qur’aan Hakeem glowingly says: “They fear not the insults and criticism of the insulters.”
They were those illustrious Souls who fulfilled the requisite demand of the Hadith: “Proclaim the Haqq though it be bitter.” They were those noble devotees of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) who fulfilled the command of our Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam): “The noblest Jihaad is to proclaim the Haqq in the presence of a tyrannical king.”
The Sahaabah, Taabieen, Tab-e-Taabieen and all the Ulama-e-Haqq thereafter who held aloft the Standard of Tauheed and Da’wat, were not like the mice of our day who sit silently in inter-faith seminars while kufr and shirk are dinned into their hearts and pumped into their hearts by a conglomerate of kuffaar priests and preachers. Joint-propagation of kufr and shirk with a mixture of Islam is haraam. It is a baatil venture which desensitise the hearts of the Mu’mineen to make them conducive for the ingestion and digestion of all the faiths and ideologies of kufr, shirk and atheism.
The Haqq is only Islam. Islam does not tolerate the propagation of kufr and shirk in its folds. Islam demands that the moment a mouth opens with shirk and kufr, it should be contested and demolished. And, the one who lacks this ability, this taufeeq and courage, should seek the refuge of his home and engross himself in his mundane obligations like a good Muslim. He should not venture into a field which is the preserve of Men of the Haqq with spiritual mettle, and demean himself to the kuffaar with his betrayal of the Mission of Haqq which Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had imposed on the Guardians of the Shariah.
Those who seek publicity and who are in pursuit of self-aggrandizement should not do so at the expense of destroying themselves with their self-imposed enslavement of the nafs. They should not pursue their nafsaani agenda at the expense of Allah’s Deen, for then they are trifling with this Deen and are playing with a Fire whose chastisement is unbearable.

A group of Sahaabah had migrated to the Land of Habash (Abyssinia). Najaashi, the Abyssinian emperor summoned them for dialogue. When the group of Sahaabah arrived at the royal court, contrary to the palace custom, they did not make sajdah to the king. When they were questioned in this regard, Hadhrat Ja’far (radhiyallahu anhu), the spokesman for the group of Sahaabah said: “We do not prostrate to anyone except Allah Azza Wa Jal.” The king asked: “What is that?’ Hadhrat Ja’far said: “Verily, Allah sent to us a Messenger who ordered us not to prostrate to anyone except Allah Azza Wa Jal. He commanded us with Salaat and Zakaat.”
Amr, the spokesman of the Mushrikeen of Makkah, who was also present, interjected: “Verily, they contradict you with regard to Isaa, the Son of Maryam.”
The king said to Ja’far (radhiyallahu anhu): “What do you say about Isaa Ibn Maryam and his mother?” Ja’far (radhiyallahu anhu) responded: “We say what Allah said. He is the Word of Allah and His Rooh which He bestowed to the pure and chaste Maryam whom no man had ever touched. He ordered that we worship only Allah and that we do not associate anyone with Him. He commanded us with righteousness and prohibited us from evil.”
Highly impressed by this dialogue, Najaashi picked up a particle (like a blade of grass) and addressing the gathering in his court, said: “O Assembly of Habshah, Qissiseen (Ulama) and Ruhbaan (Monks)! By Allah! They had not added to what you say about the Son of Maryam by even the weight of this particle.”
Then granting the Sahaabah asylum, Najaashi said: “Welcome to you and the one from whom you have come. Verily, I bear witness that he is the Rasool of Allah and with that which he has informed about Isaa. If I was not preoccupied with the political problems of the country, I would go to him and kiss his shoes. Stay in my land wherever you wish.”
This was the Dialogue of Tableegh – propagation of the unadulterated Haqq without the slightest compromise. Despite the predicament of the Sahaabah who had sought asylum in a strange land ruled by a Christian king who was fed misinformation by the Mushrikeen of Makkah to influence him with ‘Islamophobia’, they (the Sahaabah) in their dialogue did not play the inter-faith fiddle. They proclaimed the Haqq having total trust in Allah Azza Wa Jal.
The mission of Islam was to proclaim the Truth and efface the falsehood of all other religions. There was, therefore, no intention to curry favour nor to soften the blow of the Islamic rejection of the trinity godhood concept of the Christians for the sake of gaining asylum and for any misguided attempt to dispel ‘Islamophobia’ – a trick which shaitaan has whispered into the hearts of the inter-faith molvis and sheikhs who sit like poodles ingesting shirk, kufr and atheism in exchange for being permitted to present a watered down, weak message of Islam which would be palatable for the inter-faith preachers and other non-Muslims.
Dialogue between the Sahaabah and non-Muslims had only one purpose, namely, to present only Islam to them without affording them the opportunity of presenting their false religions. The purpose of Da’wat and Tableegh is not to dispel ‘Islamophobia’. The aim is nothing other than the presentation of Tauheed and Islam to the non-Muslims. There is no political or any other agenda for Tableegh.


Q. According to a Mufti it is permissible to give Qur’aan copies to non-Muslims. The conditions for permissibility according to him are:
* The intention should be their guidance.
* There should be reasonable confidence that they will not disrespect the Qur’aan. Nevertheless, it is better to give them a translation without the Arabic text.
* If a copy with the Arabic text is given, they should be asked to purify themselves (with ghusl).
Is this fatwa correct?
A. The fatwa is highly erroneous. The conditions stated by the Mufti are his hallucinations. Da’wah may not be executed with haraam methods. The idea of haraam being a valid method for Da’wah is termed Talbeesul Iblees (deception and trick of shaitaan). Hidaayat (guidance) is from only Allah Ta’ala. Even the Ambiya were commanded to say: “Upon us is to only deliver the Message.” The function of the Ambiya is delivery of the Message of Allah Ta’ala, and this Message has to be delivered in halaal methods. The Ambiya never employed haraam methods to propagate the pure Deen of Allah Ta’ala.
Furthermore, instead of being guided, the likelihood of non-Muslims developing greater aversion for Islam by reading a translation is real and strong. They will not correctly understand the Aayaat pertaining to Jihad and killing non-Muslims. They will not at all understand the Aayaat because of ignorance of the variety of contexts in which the Qur’aanic verses were revealed.
The idea of there being reasonable confidence that the kuffaar will not disrespect the Qur’aan is ludicrous. The Mufti has displayed total lack of understanding of the mood of the kuffaar in this era of hatred for Islam and Muslims. It is indeed stupid to expect the kuffaar to show respect and reverence for the Qur’aan which they believe is ‘false’ and a ‘fabrication’ of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Asking them to take ghusl is laughable.
The Head Mufti has erred grievously with his fatwa and with this fatwa he has confirmed his lack of understanding the environment and the people with whom he deals. It is haraam to give Qur’aan copies to the kuffaar, and it is not permissible to publish translations without the Arabic text.


Q. I said to an Aalim who teaches in a mixed school that it is not permissible. He said that according to him it was permissible because students in these schools become murtad. Committing a haraam act to save them is therefore allowed because it is the lesser of the two evils. I have seen Ulama nowadays using this argument to justify their commission  of haraam for purposes of da’wah. This aalim also wears a t-cap. When I said that it is not permissible since it is Tashabbuh bil kuffaar/fussaaq, he said the Head Mufti of Jamiatur Rasheed did not say that it is haram. That is why he wears this type of cap. Is his argument valid?
A. The chap is not an aalim. He is a jaahil. The obligation of an Aalim or of any Muslim
is to state the Haqq in a halaal manner. Haraam ways may not be employed to propagate the Deen. Our duty is to state the Haqq, and for this only methods permitted by the Shariah are valid. When Allah Ta’ala has made an act haraam, it is contumacious to utilize that act for propagating His pure Deen.
If someone becomes a murtad, it is ordained in his taqdeer. It never means that the muballigh should violate the laws of Allah Ta’ala in a futile attempt with a haraam stunt. The last naseehat of Hadhrat Maulana Yusuf Binnuri (Rahmatullah alayh) was on this very same subject. He clearly explained the prohibition of using haraam ways for propagating the Deen. Have you seen his article?
The baseless argument about the t-cap further confirms the jahaalat of this so-called aalim. It was the way of Bani Israaeel to follow even the erroneous and baatil fatwas of their Ahbaar and Ruhbaan. Castigating them for this evil obedience, Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed: “They take their Scholars and their Saints as gods besides Allah, and also for Isaa, the son of Maryam.” When it suits the nafs, these juhala molvis jump on to the bandwagon of stupid taqleed – taqleed of Ulama who are no where near to  the Fuqaha whose Taqleed is Waajib. If the Head Mufti of Jamiatur Rasheed had averred
that the kuffaar cap is permissible, then his fatwa is a gross error. It is not permissible to follow such blatant errors of the Ulama.
