Some Statements from Shaikh adh-Dhafeeri’s Refutation of Muhammad al Imaam, introduced by Shaikh Fawzaan

September 7, 2015

Firstly, a reminder about what Shaikh Rabee said a year agp when he was asked about Shaikh Ubaid al Jaabiree’s declaring Muhammad al Imaam to be an innovator, to which he responded:

( http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=146223 )

“Firstly, it is obligatory upon Muhammad al Imaam to repent to Allaah from this pact”

Then he said,

“I am amazed at the one who seeks to reject the tabdee’ (declaration of one being an innovator) of Shaikh ‘Ubaid for Muhammad al Imaam, but this one doesn’t seek to reject the takfeer (declaring one to be a disbeliever) of some of the Haddaadees (extremists) and Hizbees of myself and Shaikh ‘Ubaid based upon Muhammad al Imaam’s pact”

The following are a few sentences translated from the treatise by Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri[1] which can be downloaded from here:

http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=154275

Shaikh Saalih Fawzaan said about this treatise by Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri:

“I have examined the treatise entitled: ‘Alerting those who possess pure intellects’ by Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri – (we ask that) Allaah grants him success – and I found it to be satisfactory with regards to its subject.  So (we ask that) Allaah rewards him with good and brings about benefit by his knowledge”

(p.2 in the pdf viewer)

The following are just a few of the statements of Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri from the treatise:

“Firstly, Muhammad al Imaam’s continuing to defend the pact and work by its ratified terms until the present – along with the Yemeni and Saudi governments as well as the governments of the Gulf nations being at war with the Houthis – those (Houthis) who have broken agreements, killed Ahlus Sunnah, betrayed them numerous times and who are supported by Iran which supplies them with weapons and equipment.

“Secondly, the followers of Muhammad al Imaam misguiding the people with fabrications about the noble Shaikh Saalih bin Fawzaan al Fawzaan in saying that he approves of this pact.” (p.4 in the pdf viewer)

Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri said:

“The unrestrictiveness of their statement (in the pact): ‘And the absence of war, mutual clashing, fighting, or fitnah no matter what the circumstances or the reasons’

“The unrestrictiveness of this shows foolishness, weakness, and cowardice.  Because it requires and necessitates a lack of fighting the Houthis no matter what they do.  Even if they fight and kill Ahlus Sunnah in all areas of Yemen, or if the (scholars and rulers) of the Muslims of Ahlus Sunnah announce a general call to arms against the Houthis, then Muhammad al Imaam will stick to the pact and won’t fight with his Muslim brothers from Ahlus Sunnah even if jihaad and fighting are considered fard ayn (an individual obligation).

“Likewise it requires that Muhammad al Imaam and whoever is under his leadership stick to this pact and this unrestricted agreement even if there occurs from the Houthis treachery and betrayal.” (p.9 in the pdf viewer)

Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri said:

“This is what Muhammad al Imaam has made obligatory with the Houthis which is built upon this agreement which he endorsed – even up until the present.  For indeed on the first jumuah after “Decisive Storm”[2] (started) he rejected this fighting.  This fighting which was a result of the Houthis breaking and betraying their treaties and their international agreement – and he called (this fighting against the Shia Houthis) the fighting of fitnah.  And he continues to be upon this.  He emphasized this in the khutbah he gave on the 15th of Shawwal 1436H in which he portrayed the fighting which is occurring right now against the (Shia) Houthis as the fighting of fitnah.  And (he mentioned) that whoever left it was the one who had intellect and understanding – and he meant by that himself and his followers.   He mentioned texts and narrations to try to argue that, which shows that he is only someone who memorizes and transmits (the texts) without understanding them.  And that he doesn’t distinguish between the fighting of jihaad against the evil-doers and the fighting of fitnah.” (p.9 in the pdf viewer)

Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri said:

“Seventhly, what it contains from far-reaching danger, and that is what some of Muhammad al Imaam’s followers are doing from misguiding the people through their telling lies about Shaikh Saalih Fawzaan that he supports this pact.  And from this is what has come on the website (which will not be named here) from what Uthmaan as-Saalimee and Jameel al-Haamilee have transmitted – that they showed Shaikh Fawzaan some of the terms of the pact and that he supported Muhammad al Imaam and said:

بما أنها قد وقعت انتهى الأمر

“Because it has already occurred, the affair has ended”

And that he said,

إن الشيخ محمد الإمام هو أعرف بحاله أي حال البلاد

“Indeed Shaikh Muhammad al Imaam is more knowledgeable about his situation”

And that he said,

وبما أن الشيخ محمد قد وقع على هذه الوثيقة فهو أمر مطلوب حفاظا على الدعوة والدماء والأعراض

“Because Shaikh Muhammad has signed this pact, then this is something which is desired to preserve the da’wah, the blood (of the people), and their honor”

“I (Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri) say: (Even) If they were truthful in their transmission, then they didn’t present to Shaikh Saalih Fawzaan the entire pact.  If they had shown Shaikh Fawzaan the entire pact along with what has become clear lately from the positions of Muhammad al Imaam regarding the “Decisive Storm” (military strikes), the Shaikh (Fawzaan) would have rejected this pact.  And how could Shaikh Fawzaan agree to its terms while it contains what it contains of calamities and misrepresentation of the (correct) beliefs?” (p.13 in the pdf viewer)

Islamic Condemnation of Terrorists, Hijackers & Suicide Bombers

They say: “If Allaah had willed, we would not have taken partners (in worship) with Him…”

July 8, 2015

“Those who took partners (in worship) with Allâh will say: “If Allâh had willed, we would not have taken partners (in worship) with Him, nor would our fathers, and we would not have forbidden anything (against His Will).” Likewise belied those who were before them, (they argued falsely with Allâh’s Messengers), till they tasted of Our Wrath.” (6:148)

Some of the points of benefit Imaam as-Sa’dee mentioned in his tafsir of this verse:

That the kufaar try to use Allaah’s qadar (pre-decree) as an argument to excuse their choosing to disbelieve and deny the Prophets. Imaam as-Sa’dee mentioned that their argument is refuted from a number of angles, from them:

– that if their argument was correct, then Allaah would not have allowed them to be punished – Allaah only punishes the one who deserves the punishment

– that Allaah, The Most High, gave everyone ability (qudrah) and desire (iraadah) so that they can fulfill the duties they have been commanded with. He hasn’t made obligatory upon anyone anything that they are unable to do. Nor has He prohibited anyone from anything that they are unable to leave off.

– that Allaah, The Most High, does not force anyone to do anything. Rather, He has made their actions a result of their choices. If they desire (shaa’a) to do something they do it, and if they desire to not do something, they do not do it.

– Everyone can tell the difference between having free choice in one’s actions and being forced

– those who use the argument of pre-decree as an excuse to disobey Allaah contradict themselves in that because they themselves would not accept this argument. If someone beat them, took their wealth, or did some other evil deed to them and then tried to use pre-decree as an argument to excuse their actions, they would not accept this from them and would become very angry

Drawing pictures depicting people or events from the Quran

July 2, 2015

Taken from http://www.alifta.com fatwa no. 18828

Praise be to Allah, Alone, and peace and blessings be upon the Last Prophet!

The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’ reviewed the question submitted to His Eminence the Grand Mufty by the Deputy Director of the Cooperative Office For Da`wah and Guidance in Al-Quway`iyyah, under no. (5/17/KH), dated 15 Muharram, 1417 A.H., and it was referred to the Committee by the Secretariat General of the Council of Senior Scholars under no. 894 on 9 Safar, 1417A.H. The following is the wording of the question:

What is the ruling on drawing pictures to illustrate the Ayahs (Qur’anic verses) such as drawing camels and writing beneath the picture His (Exalted be He) statement: Do they not look at the camels, how they are created? Etc.? We hope that you would issue a Fatwa in this regard.

(Part No. 1; Page No. 308)

  After studying the matter, the Committee replied:

It is Haram (prohibited) to illustrate the Qur’an using pictures that show parables of the prophets and the messengers of Allah (peace be upon them), pious people, Kafirs (disbelievers), devils, and beings such as trees, and the like. It is not permissible to draw, print, publish, or use such pictures regardless of the good intentions of the artist such as; making the Ayahs easy for the children or new Muslims to understand, or any other reasons. The legal violations involved include:

1. Drawing pictures of beings with souls or trees, etc. To illustrate the Qur’an is a Bid`ah (innovation in Islam). It contradicts the Manhaj (methodology) of the scholars in explaining the meanings of the Qur’an in the present and past.

2. This act devalues the Qur’an and belittles its glorious meanings.

3. It is a way to explain its meaning by ways which Allah (Glorified be He) did not legislate.

4. Drawing prophets and messengers make them subject to mockery,

(Part No. 1; Page No. 309)

 contempt, and disdain. Anyone who draws their pictures commits a great sin as mocking any Prophet is Kufr (disbelief) as mentioned in the Qur’an.

5. Drawing imaginary pictures of prophets is an evident reason behind Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship), and marred monotheism. Allah informed us of those who worshiped Wadd, Suwa`, Yaghuth, Ya`uq, and Nasr (names of their idols). Allah states, And they have said: ‘You shall not leave your gods: nor shall you leave Wadd, nor Suwâ‘ …nor Yaghûth, nor Ya‘ûq nor Nasr’ (these are the names of their idols) And indeed they have led many astray. The people of Nuh (Noah, peace be upon him) became disbelievers when they carved the pictures of those righteous people and erected their statues in their gatherings. This lead them to worship those people.

6. Taswir (painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography) of beings with a soul is Haram (prohibited). There are many authentic Hadiths related from the Prophet (peace be upon him) in the Sihah (authentic books), Sunan, and Musnads that indicate the prohibition of the Taswir of any being with a soul, whether human or not. There are also many Hadiths that urge defacing pictures, cursing the image makers, and that they will be the most grievously tormented people on the Day of Resurrection. Here are some of the authentic Hadiths that were mentioned in this regard. It is recorded in the Two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (i.e. Al-Bukhari and Muslim), on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that

the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) stated, Allah (Exalted be He) stated, “Who can be more unjust than he

(Part No. 1; Page No. 310)

 who tries to create the like of My creatures? Let them (i.e. I challenge them to) create an atom (or a small ant), a grain of wheat or a grain of barley!” (The wording is cited according to the narration of Muslim)

It was also related in them on the authority of Ibn Mas`ud (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, The people who will receive the severest punishment from Allah will be the picture makers. It is also recorded in the Two Sahihs on the authority of Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, Those who make statues would be punished on the Day of Resurrection and it would be said to them: Breathe soul into what you have created.” (The wording is cited according to the narration of Al-Bukhari)

`Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) related, “The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) came to me, and I had screened my alcove with a curtain on which there were pictures. When the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saw it, he tore it and the color of his face changed (due to anger) and he said, ‘O `Aishah! The people who will receive the severest punishment on the Day of Resurrection will be those who imitate Allah’s Creation.’ So we tore it up and we stuffed a cushion or two cushions with it.” (Related by Muslim) This is in addition to many other Hadiths to this effect.

It is not permissible to explain the Qur’an in this manner; it is not permissible to explain the Hadith related by the Prophet (peace be upon him) in this manner for the same reasons mentioned above.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

The meeting between ibn Ladin and the Scholar from Mali

August 30, 2014

 

This is a summary translation of an extract of Shaikh Abdullah Bukhari’s speech in which he recounted a meeting between one of his teachers – The illustrious scholar from Mali Hammaad al Ansaree – rahimahullah – and the extremist, the terrorist, Osama ibn Ladin. Taken from:

http://www.albaidha.net/vb/showthread.php?t=51284

(This recounting starts about halfway down the page)

I mention to you (what happened) in the year 1407 (1986 CE) after the Hijrah, that this one (Osama bin Ladin) came to our Shaikh, Shaikh Hammaad al-Ansaaree – rahimahullah at his house which was in the area which we know – the street of al-a’madah – the Shaikh’s old house. And I was there in the library of the Shaikh with him along with some other people. So this one (ibn Ladin) entered and with him were two other people. He said, “O Shaikh! I want to speak.”

Shaikh Hammaad said, “Who are you?”

He said, “I am Osama ibn Ladin”

The Shaikh didn’t know him. He had no idea who he was.

Shaikh Hammaad said, “What do you want”

Ibn Ladin said, “I want to speak.”

Shaikh Hammaad said, “Say what you like.”

Ibn Ladin said, “O Shaikh! We read in the biographies of the Scholars that one would, for example, fight in the path of Allaah in this battle. And that he did this and that and he fought in the path of Allaah. So who is like this! Upon examination, this speech is false. This can not be said in the biography of every Imaam, right?

This (fighting in the path of Allaah) was done by some of them, but not all of them….But we find nowadays that the Scholars do not even fire one bullet in the path of Allaah!”

Shaikh Hammaad didn’t let him finish. He silenced him and said to him, “Who told you that?! Who told you that?! Every day we are firing numerous bullets: bullets of knowledge! Everyday we are firing numerous bullets: bullets of knowledge! So where are you getting this speech of yours (that the Scholars nowadays do not fight or do not fire bullets in the path of Allaah)?”

Of course, Ibn Ladin was unable to reply so he sought his permission to leave and then left.
