The Change in the Arabs Brought about Through the Qur'aan

posted by Seifeddine-M on 10th December 2014 - 0 comments

The Qur'aan came to change the beliefs, behaviour and outlook of all who are astray. It came to guide them to true happiness and the way of life that one should follow in this life. Allaah سبحانه و تعالى states,

The Issue of Reviling Ameerul Mu'mineen 'Ali رضي الله عنه

Dr. 'Ali Muhammad as-Sallabi writes,


Stick to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the Khulafa Rashideen (RA)

posted by Seifeddine-M on 8th August 2014 - 0 comments

The Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "Certainly, the one who will live among you will see lots of differences. So stick to my sunnah and the sunnah of the right-principled and rightly-guided successors. Bite onto that with your molar teeth." [1] The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم mentioned his own sunnah and then mentioned the sunnah of his rightly-guided successors رضي الله عنهم. These successors are called raashideen because they know the truth and they judge or act in accordance with it. Raashid (راشد) is the opposite of ghaawa (غاوى). Ghaawa implies recognizing the truth but not following it. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم also described them as mahdiyeen (المهديّين). This means that Allah has guided them to the truth and has not led them astray from it. This is the opposite of dhaal (ضال) or one who is astray from the truth and does not know the truth. For these successors to be true examples for others to follow, it is a must that they had to have recognized the truth, were guided and followed it. Otherwise, they are not worthy of being followed.


The Lofty Status Of The Illustrious Sahaba (May Allaah Be Pleased With Them All)

The Saheehayn contain a hadeeth reported by Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri رضي الله عنه that something happened between Khalid Ibn al-Waleed رضي الله عنه and 'Abdur Rahman Ibn 'Awf رضي الله عنه, whereupon the former said some words to the latter. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم took exception to it and said, [b]"Do not abuse any of my Companions. Were any one of you to spend heaps of gold equivalent to Mount Uhud, you would not attain even the virtue of a mudd or half thereof of one of them." [al-Bukhari, Fada'il as-Sahaaba, 3673; Muslim, Fada'il as-Sahaaba, 2541; Abu Dawood, as-Sunna, 4658; at-Tirmidhi, al-Manaqib, 3860; Ahmad, 3:11, 54] By his Companions رضي الله عنهم the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم meant 'Abdur Rahman رضي الله عنه and others like him who had embraced Islaam in the early years before Makkah was captured and who had fought for Islaam. They were the people who swore their fealty to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم under the tree. They were better and more honoured than those who entered into the faith afterwards, that it, after the Treaty of Hudaybiyya, which the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم concluded with the Makkans. Khalid Ibn al-Waleed رضي الله عنه embraced Islaam along with others in this later period. To be sure, they were better than those who embraced Islaam after Makkah was conquered and those are known as tulaqa, that it, those who were forgiven and set free. This group included Abu Sufyan and his sons, Yazeed and Mu'awiyah رضي الله عنهم. The burden of this hadeeth is that those who joined the Prophet's صلى الله عليه وسلم company later should not speak ill of those who had joined his company earlier since they had honour no other Companions رضي الله عنهم had and could not have, even if they spent fold equal to Mount Uhud. If this is about those who embraced Islaam after the Treaty of Hudaybiyya and before the Conquest of Makkah, what of those who never joined the Prophet's company?

Those Who Oppose The Noble Companions (RA)

On the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra رضي الله عنه who said: The Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "Allaah, the Almighty, has said, [b]'Whoever acts with enmity towards a friend (wali) of Mine, I declare war upon him.'" [/color] [al-Bukhari; al-Bayhaqi in az-Zuhd al-Kabeer, Sunan al-Kubra and in some of his other works; al-Baghawi also recorded it in both Sharh as-Sunnah and Maseebah as-Sunnah] [color=#000000]Whoever opposes the noble Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them all) is actually opposing the Auliya of Allaah سبحانه و تعالى. This is a point many evil deluded groups, including but not restricted to the Shia, have neglected. It is clear from the Qur'aan and Hadeeth that the Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them all) were people of Imaan and Taqwa. If a person opposes them, then Allaah سبحانه و تعالى is declaring war upon him! [/color]

The Status of the Noble Companions (May Allah Be Pleased With Them)

[color=blue][b]The Status of the Noble Companions رضي الله عنهم[/b][/center] "Allah سبحانه و تعالى selected a group to accompany the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and receive the Shari’ah from him; [b]they are the best of his ummah."[/color] [This article is part of a free translation of 'aqidah ahl al-sunnah wa al-jama'ah fi al-sahabah al-kiram by 'Abd al-Muhsin al-'Abbad] A manifestation of Allah’s mercy and favour upon His slaves is that He sent to them a Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم to convey His message, guide them to all that is good and warn them from all that is harmful. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم assumed this capacity and accomplished the trust borne on him in a perfect manner; he guided his nation [ummah] towards every good, warned them from every evil and advised them in a sincere and manifest way. Allah سبحانه و تعالى selected a group of people to accompany the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and receive the Shari’ah from him, they are held to be the best of his ummah, which in turn is the best of all ummahs. Allah honoured them with companionship of His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and favoured them in this life by enabling them to see him and hear his speech directly from his noble mouth; that indeed is the favour of Allah, He gives it to whoever He wills and Allah is the Possessor of great bounty.

[color=blue][b]Ibn Hazm (رحمه الله) About Agreement Of The Companions (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين)[/b][/center] [color=#000000]Allama ibn Hazm (رحمه الله) in his short treatise “an-Nubaz al-kafiya fi akhamil usul ad-deen” said: “Contrary to this, the one who goes against agreement of the Companions (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين), and deliberately transgresses it, if there is a proof (for him established) and he was informed and (he) still persists – then he would be considered a disbeliever.” Source: “an-Nubaz al-kafiya fi akhamil usul ad-deen” p 21 And he also said:

[color=#000000]In the Name of Allah … يقول ابن القيم رحمه الله : عن فضائل عائشة رضي الله عنها ، ومن خصائصها رضي الله عنها: أنها كانت أحب أزواج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إليه كما ثبت عنه ذلك في البخاري وغيره وقد سئل أي الناس أحب إليك قال عائشة قيل فمن الرجال قال أبوها ، ومن خصائصها أيضا رضي الله عنها : أنه لم يتزوج امرأة بكرا غيرها . ومن خصائصها رضي الله عنها:أنه كان ينزل عليه الوحي وهو في لحافها دون غيرها ، ومن خصائصها رضي الله عنها: أن الله عز وجل لما أنزل عليه آية التخيير بدأ بها فخيرها فقال : “ ولا عليك أن لا تعجلي حتى تستأمري أبويك فقالت أفي هذا أستأمر أبوي فإني أريد الله ورسوله والدار الآخرة فاستنّ بها ( أي اقتدى ) بقية أزواجه صلى الله عليه وسلم وقلن كما قالت، ومن خصائصها رضي الله عنها: أن الله سبحانه برأها مما رماها به أهل الإفك وأنزل في عذرها وبراءتها وحيا يتلى في محاريب المسلمين وصلواتهم إلى يوم القيامة وشهد لها بأنها من الطيبات ووعدها المغفرة والرزق الكريم وأخبر سبحانه أن ما قيل فيها من الإفك كان خيرا لها ولم يكن ذلك الذي قيل فيها شرا لها ولا عائبا لها ولا خافضا من شأنها بل رفعها الله بذلك وأعلى قدرها وأعظم شأنها وصار لها ذكرا بالطيب والبراءة بين أهل الأرض والسماء فيا لها من منقبة ما أجلها ، ومن خصائصها رضي الله عنها : أن الأكابر من الصحابة رضي الله عنهم كان إذا أشكل عليهم أمر من الدين استفتوها فيجدون علمه عندها ، ومن خصائصهارضي الله عنها : أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم توفي في بيتها وفي يومها وبين سحرها ونحرها ودفن في بيتها Ibn al-Qayyim said when speaking about the virtues of Aisha [May Allah be pleased with her]: And from her unique virtues [May Allah be pleased with her] is that she was the dearest wife to the Messenger of Allah [Prayers of Allah and peace be upon him] as was proven in Bukhari and others, when he [Prayers of Allah and peace be upon him] was asked whom among the people is the most beloved by you, so said: Aisha. [He was then asked] and from the men, so he said: her father. And from her unique qualities [May Allah be pleased with her] is that he [Prayers of Allah and peace be upon him] did not marry a virgin except her.

Ameerul Mu'mineen Ali Ibn Abi Talib (RA)

Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allaah have mercy upon him said): "They (Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa'ah) accept what has been reported continuously from the Prince of the Believers, 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him), and from others, that the best men of this 'Ummah after its Prophet are: Abu Bakr; then 'Umar; third, 'Uthman, and fourth, 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with them all). All Traditions have indicated, and all Sahabah (may Allah be pleased with them all) have agreed upon giving priority to 'Uthman out of regard for his allegiance (al-Bai'ah), although some of the people of the Sunnah are disputing over whether 'Uthman or 'Ali (may Allah be pleased with both of them) has the priority, after they (the people of the Sunnah) had agreed upon giving priority to Abu Bakr and 'Umar. Some people gave the priority to 'Uthman and kept silent and considered 'Ali to be the fourth. However, some people preferred 'Ali. And some remained neutral. But the people of the Sunnah settled on preferring 'Uthman, even though this matter - the matter of 'Uthman and 'Ali - is not of the fundamentals. The majority of the people of the Sunnah do not consider disagreeing in this matter as being misled. Rather, it is in the matter of the "Question of the Caliphate" where they consider the disagreeing person to be misled.

Ahl as-Sunnah believe that the Caliph after the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is Abu Bakr; then 'Umar; then 'Uthman, then 'Ali, and that whoever contests the Caliphate of any one of these Imams is indeed more lost than an ass." ('Aqeedatul-Waasitiyyah)

The Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎) remarked to Hadrat Ali (رضي الله عنه), "You are to me like Haroon (عليه السلام) was to Moosa (عليه السلام), except that there is to be no prophet after me." His lineage is: 'Ali son of Abu Talib son of 'Abdul-Muttalib son of Hashim son of 'Abd Manaf son of Qusayy al-Qurashi.


Caliphate Of Abu Bakr (RA) In Qur'an

posted by Seifeddine-M on 23rd November 2011 - 0 comments

[color=#000000]Scholars have deduced the reference to Hadrat Abu Bakr's (RA) caliphate from some verses of the Qur'aan. Al-Hasan al-Basri (RA), commenting on the verse:[/color] "O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allah, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower." (5:54) said,[b] 'By Allaah, they are Abu Bakr and his companions. When some Arabs relinquished Islaam after the death of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam), Abu Bakr and his Companions fought them until they returned back to Islaam.' (Seeratul Khulafaa ar-Raashideen radiallaahu 'anhum) [/color]
