Tazkiyatun Nafs

Assalamu Alaikum:

I have read in a few books that tazkiyatun nafs only through a Shaykh is fardh and in some places it says wajib. The Daleel they use is 'WA YUZAKKIHIM' from the Qur'aan.

Does this mean that all those who do [b:ee0ba505a1]not[/b:ee0ba505a1] go through the means of a Shaykh will be sinful for missing a Fardh or Wajib according to them?

Can Tazkiya not be achieved by living a simple life?

Those who also are very sinful, can tazkiya not be achieved through regret, repentance, salah and du'aa?

I do not refute seeking guidance from s shaykh or scholar which is why I am asking here too. I do not deny that there are plenty more benefits having a spiritual guide who is already close to Allah.

My concern is how easily scholars say it's is Fardh or it is Waajib. Please correct me if i'm wrong and may Allah forgive me if i'm wrong.

Assalamu alaikum

Khatamun nabiyeen

I came across the following on some Qadiani website.


Only to the general public, the finality of Prophethood (Khatamun Nabiyeen) means the last Prophet, this is not the correct meaning of the term, for the knowledgeable people. Even if a Prophet comes after the Era of Muhammad, it will make no difference to the end of prophethood that is associated with Muhammad. (Tahzeerun Naas by Maulana Qasim Nanotwi, page 3, 25).


also in moulana ashraf thanvi (ra) book nashut teeb he was quoted a hadith in which the prophet (saw) says 'the 1st thing which allah created was my noor from his noor and from it he created the whole world'


is this hadith sahih or has moulana ashraf thanvi (ra) just used it for fazail. the brealwi quote this hadith to support the fact the prohet (saw) is noor and claim so did moulana thanvi (ra)

Sihr(black magic)

I wonder how these things affect targeted person. How should one protect oneself from these evils? If it is established that there are bad effects of black magic etc, how can be they removed?

The menace of black magic & other related evils is very rampant these days in society. People just cannot tolerate any happiness to others. There are persons who do this evil business for these ill minded people. Furthermore, there are also persons who claim to cure against these evils but again mostly fraudulent ? I think. It is also frequently claimed that cure against black magic is extremely difficult and dangerous for ordinary people. Hence, more and more people are falling prey to them. I wonder how these things affect targeted person. How should one protect oneself from these evils? If it is established that there are bad effects of black magic etc, how can be they removed? Please highlight in the light of Islamic teachings.

Apostasy

Assalamualaikum
Respected Mufti Sahab,
My question is with regards to the 'converted Christian' Abdul Rahman. He was imprisoned, accused of apostasy- or denouncing Islam in favour of Christianity. He was facing the death penalty from the Afghan government if he did not denounce Christianity.
On many Islamic forums, I have read views of Muslims critisising the Afghan government for their actions. The most common argument is, Muslims should be tolerant towards these issues as it is only adding fuel to the fire of the Islamophobic war. Could you please clarify what our thoughts should be on this issue, as opposing something that is in the Shariah, even unknowingly, can prove to be fatal for our Iman.
Jazakallah

What Madhab does one chose??

salams...

i am really confused with the concept of choosing a madhab (school of thought)

is it vital to follow a specifc mudhab? can you agree to some concepts of one mudhab and follow another? can you pick and choose sayings of a madhab? how do you know what mudhab is right? do you yourself choose a madhab?

what happens to the person who is in this state that they dont know what mudhab to choose? will his prayers be accepted?

do you strongly have to abide by the choosen mudhabs saying?

i am so sorry if i have boombarded you with theses questions but i and many people in my situation would be grateful

Jazarkhallahu khayran

may ALLAH reward you for your help

Shaytan & Nuffs

Assalamu alaikum:

Does shaytaan mean only Iblis or all evil jinns those follow him? If not, can evil jinn also influence human thinking like shaytaan?
In a Hadith, I found in Ramadan shaytaan is (are) kept in prison. What are the evil factors those inspire human sin during Ramadan?

I'll be grateful if you kindly give answer about the evil factors those give 'aswasa' to human and what 'dua' should we do to get rid of those evil 'aswasa'?

Allah Hafez.
