EBook: Dispelling The Darkness of Jabahat an-Nusra and ISIS by Shaykh Muhammad Ramzaan al-Haajiree

MURA EB 20140918 dispelling the darkness of nusra and isis PROMO

The following eBook was transcribed from a tele-lecture delivered by ash-Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ramzaan al-Haajiree (حفظه الله), which was hosted by Muwahhideen Publications in conjunction with Islam.tt and Imam-Malik.net on 18th September 2014 entitled, “Dispelling The Darkness of Jabahat an-Nusra and ISIS.” This insightful lecture was part of a Three-Day Webinar with The People of Knowledge entitled, “Extinguishing The Flames of War of The Deviant Sect ISIS”

~ An excerpt taken from the eBook ~

So we have Jabhat-un-Nusrah in Shaam and unexpectedly, they separated themselves from al-Qaa’idah and likewise, DAA’ISH also separated from al-Qaa’idah. Jabhat-un-Nusrah (then) splintered off from DAA’ISH. The mother is al-Qaa’idah and the daughters are DAA’ISH and Jabhat-un-Nusrah. Their ‘Aqeedah is one: revolting against the rulers, making takfeer of the rulers, disregarding or nullifying the allegiance to the Muslim rulers and distancing themselves from the general population of the Muslims. [According to the Arabic proverb] “How similar tonight is to yesterday.”

How similar the Khawaarij of today are to those of old who revolted against the Sahaabah. They made takfeer of ‘Ali (عنهرضي اللّه), nullified their allegiance to him and isolated themselves from the general population of the Muslims. They went to an area called Haroorah and due to this they were named al-Harooriyyah.

An excerpt taken from the ChapterListening to The ‘Eid Khutbah

Al-Haafidh Ibn Battal mentioned in ‘Sharh Saheeh al-Bukhaaree’, vol.2, pg. 572: “The scholars considered the people talking as the Imaam gives the khutbah as being makrooh (disliked).”

Regarding the hadeeth: “Indeed, we will give the khutbah, thus whoever wishes to stay for the khutbah is to sit and stay and whoever wishes to leave, may leave.”

The majority of the People of Knowledge are of the opinion that this hadeeth is mursal and from those scholars who were of this opinion include: Ibn Ma’een, Abu Zur’ah ar-Raazee, an-Nasaa’ee, Abu Daawood, al-Bayhaqee and al-Waadi’ee. And mursal is from the categories of weak hadeeth.

Ebook: The Virtue and Excellence Of The Last Ten Nights Of Ramadhaan by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Rabee’ al-Madkhalee

MURB EB 20120809 virtue of last ten nights

The following Ebook was transcribed from a tele-lecture by ash-Shaykh Muhammad ibn Rabee’ al-Madkhalee (حفظه اللهhosted by Muwahhideen Publications on 9th August 2012 entitled, “The Virtue and Excellence of the Last Ten Nights of Ramadhaan.”

Herein, the Shaykh discusses pertinent matters related to Taraweeh, Laylatul Qadr, the last ten night of Ramadhaan in general and other salient points of benefit.

~ An excerpt taken from the Ebook ~

“Dear brothers, this is going to be the last part of this phone lecture and we really need more action than statements. From the wisdom of Allah سبحانه وتعالى, is that He has hidden the Night of Decree from us and we do not know exactly when it is going to be in the last ten in the month of Ramadhaan. And He سبحانه وتعالى told His Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم exactly when it would be and when the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم went out to his Companions to tell them exactly when the Night of Decree will be, he found two of the Muslims arguing with one another, asking him to judge between them so he became busy with their affair and was made to forget exactly which night is the Night of Decree in the last ten of Ramadhaan. This in itself indicates and shows us how bad it is to disagree with one another and how bad it is to fight amongst the Muslims, so much so that Allahسبحانه وتعالى took away the knowledge of the exact day of Laylatul Qadr in the last ten. That is one way of looking at it.”

An excerpt taken from the chapter:

The First Aspect

These protests contradict what the Sharee’ah has commanded and what it has prohibited regarding the way in which individuals should interact with the rulers in the face of evil acts, munkaraat (acts of disobedience), oppression, inequity, or their misappropriation of the wealth and keeping it from the people.

This is due to the fact that it has come in this blessed, noble Sharee’ah:

  1. The command to be patient in the face of oppression from the rulers, their inequities and misappropriation of wealth
  2. The command of hearing and obeying in that which is not disobedience to Allah, the Most High
  3. The command that advising them is to be done privately and not openly
  4. The prohibition from disobeying the rulers
  5. The prohibition from revolting against the rulers by either statement or action, whether armed or not armed (peaceful)
  6. The prohibition from cursing them or verbally disparaging them

Herein the Shaykh offers a discourse where he legitimizes the validity of the Salafi Methodology and the Ummah’s need for it, which he corroborates with evidences from the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم).

An excerpt taken from the book ~

“Therefore, they are an example for this nation, and their methodology is what this nation (should) adhere to in terms of belief, transactions, character, and in all affairs. Their methodology is taken from the Book of Allah and the Sunnah because they were close to the Messenger of Allahصلى الله عليه و سلم) ) and the time of revelation. They took (directly) from the Messenger, and thus they are the best generations and their methodology is the best methodology. It is for this reason that the Muslims are diligent in learning their methodology, so they can adhere to it, and because it is not possible to tread their path except after having knowledge, knowing the path (itself), learning it and acting upon it. Because of this, Allah The Sublime and High said,

وَالسَّابِقُونَ الأَوَّلُونَ مِن الْمُهَاجِرِينَ وَالأَنصَارِ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُوهُمْ بِإِحْسَانٍ

{And the first to embrace Islaam from the Muhaajiroon (those who migrated from Makkah to al-Madeenah) and the Ansaar (the citizens of al-Madeenah who helped and gave aid to the Mujaahiroon) and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith).}

Meaning, (they followed them) with perfection. It is not possible to follow them in a perfect manner except after learning their methodology and what they were upon. As for merely ascribing to the Salaf and Salafiyyah without knowledge of this methodology, this does not mean anything. In fact, it can possibly bring about harm, and thus it is mandatory that one has knowledge of the way of the Salaf as-Saalih.”

Ebook: The Ruling on Muslims Attending Mixed Universities Translated and Compiled by Mustafa George DeBerry

 SALH EB 20121101 free mixing in universities advert

A little more than two years ago, a fatwa was attributed to the Noble Shaykh Saalih ibn Muhammad al-Luhaydaan (May Allaah preserve him) wherein he permitted Muslims to attend mixed gender universities, and that he said that it is allowed for men and women to mix in this sort of environment, as a matter of necessity.  Clarification was sought from the Shaykh, only to realize that he made his ruling in a very limited circumstance for a particular situation. However, this fatwa was then falsely applied in an absolute way, to any general situation, causing much confusion in the west amongst Muslim communities. Our noble brother Abu Ismael Mustafa George (May Allaah preserve him) has compiled this excellent treatise translating many of the fatawaa of the scholars from the past to the present on this issue. Mustafa George states in his introduction,

“The purpose of this compilation is to remind myself and the English speaking Muslim community of the tremendous dangers that free mixing has upon the believing men and women as well as the community as a whole. A clear explanation and justification of why Islaam has forbidden such free mixing is present in the abundant proofs from the Qur’aan, the authentic Sunnah and the statements of the Salaf.”

After careful examination of this ebook, the reader will be left with a vividly clear understanding of this issue, inshaaAllaah ta’alaa.
