Was al-Khidr a Prophet?

Q. Was al-Khidr an angel, a Messenger,   a Prophet or a wali (“saint”)? 

Praise be to Allaah.

The from the general meaning of the Qur’aanic verses (Surah Kahf) it appears  that he was a Prophet. 

Shaykh al-Shanqeeti (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in his commentary on the aayah (interpretation of the meaning) 

Al-Khidr | Prophet | Surah Kahf | Quran
Al-Khidr | Prophet | Surah Kahf

“Then they found one of Our slaves, on whom We had bestowed mercy from Us, and whom We had taught knowledge from Us”

[al-Kahf 18:65] 

“But it may be understood from some aayahs that the mercy mentioned here was the mercy of Prophethood, and that this knowledge which came from Allaah was the knowledge of revelation (wahee)… It is known that mercy and the bestowal of knowledge from Allaah is more general and comes in more ways than via Prophethood.

The fact that something general exists does not necessarily imply that something more specific exists, as is well known. One of the indications that the mercy and knowledge with which Allaah blessed His slave al-Khidr came by way of Prophethood and revelation is the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): 

“And I did them not of my own accord”

[Surah Kahf 18:82] 

i.e., rather I did them by the command of Allaah, and the command of Allaah is only conveyed via wahee (revelation), because there is no way for the commands and prohibitions of Allaah to be known except through revelation from Allaah, especially with regard to the killing of an apparently innocent soul and damaging a ship by making a hole in it, because committing acts of aggression against people’s lives and wealth can only be validated via revelation from Allaah.

The Red Tea Detox


Allaah has restricted the method of warning to revelation as He says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“Say (O Muhammad): “I warn you only by the Revelation”

[al-Anbiya’ 21:45] 

the word innama (translated here as “only”) implies limitation or restriction. 

Al-Khidr | Prophet | Surah Kahf
Al-Khidr | Prophet | Surah Kahf

Adwaa’ al-Bayaan, 4/172, 173 

And he said: 

From all of this we know that al-Khidr’s killing the boy and making a hole in the ship, and his saying, 

“And I did them not of my own accord”

[Surah Kahf 18:82 – interpretation of the meaning] 

clearly indicate that he was a Prophet.

Al-Fakhr al-Raazi, in his tafseer, attributed the view that he was a Prophet to many scholars. Another factor that may indicate that he was a Prophet is the fact that Moosa (peace be upon him) humbled himself before him and said (interpretation of the meaning): 

“May I follow you so that you teach me something of that knowledge (guidance and true path) which you have been taught (by Allaah)?”

[Surah Al-Kahf 18:66] 

“If Allaah wills, you will find me patient, and I will not disobey you in aught”

[Surah Kahf 18:69] 

even though al-Khidr said to him (interpretation of the meaning): 

“And how can you have patience about a thing which you know not?” 

[Surah Al-Kahf 18:68]

Islam Q&A 
Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Hijaab should be loose not tight

Hijaab should be loose, not tight so that it describes any part of the body. 

The purpose of clothing is to prevent fitnah (temptation), and this can only be achieved if clothes are wide and loose (hijaab). Tight clothes, even if they conceal the colour of the skin, still describe the size and shape of the body or part of it, and create a vivid image in the minds of men. The corruption or invitation to corruption that is inherent in that is quite obvious. So the clothes must be wide.

Usaamah ibn Zayd said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) gave me a thick Egyptian garment that was one of the gifts given to him by Duhyat al-Kalbi, and I gave it to my wife to wear. He said, ‘Why do I not see you wearing that Egyptian garment?’ I said, ‘I gave it to my wife to wear.’ He said, ‘Tell her to wear a gown underneath it, for I am afraid that it may describe the size of her bones.’”

Hijaab Should be loose
Hijab Should be loose

(Narrated by al-Diyaa’ al-Maqdisi in al-Ahaadeeth al-Mukhtaarah, 1/442, and by Ahmad and al-Bayhaqi, with a hasan isnaad).

Highlighting the choice of Hijaab being a legitimate right of women, politically empowers them and exposes the falsehood being propagated by the secular extremists that the hijaab degrades women and is forced upon them.

It is not the cloth that opress the woman, it is the ignorance about Islam!

A sister wrote once : “I watched a video lately about … how to tie a Hijaab!!!!!

YES! Now there is an “art” of tying the Hijaab, and it’s not al Hijaab al shar’i (the Islamic Hijaab) of course, but this is a “stylish” Hijab which shaytan beautify it in front of them and whispered them to wear it!!
It comes with different colors and looks! Yes!

There are different ways to wear this “Hijaab”:

There is one with layers, one with big flower(s) one the side, one with very attractive colors, one with accessories, one which looks like camel hump, one which sparkles, one with golden and silver design, etc, …. and many many others which take much time to be tied. Unfortunately, many sisters spend hours watching videos to learn the “proper” steps of tying this kind of “Hijab”!! Some others even go to hair stylish (in some Arabic countries) to tie these scarves (in “special” occasions) and pay money for that!

hijaab

The funny thing is that these “Hijabs” attract attention more than the natural uncover hair does!!! But is this the Hijab Allah ordered Muslimat to wear in Qur’an?!!! Does this “Hijab” please Allah? Of course not!!! Why does Allah order Muslimat to wear Hijab: to attract eyes or to protect her from them?! If the scarf the Muslimah wears isn’t loose enough and does not cover her arms and chest so what will be the purpose of wearing it?!! THINK!

Hijaab will close only for you the doors of Hell….

if you wear Hijaab wear it properly and if you don’t then I’m not saying sisters who don’t wear hijaab is going to hell as that will be very ignorant statement, and it is obligatory on our sisters to wear it and we make dua for the sisters struggling instead of looking down at them. This article is just a support to those who are being oppressed and mocked at for wearing the hijab. Some sisters wear hijaab and don’t pray, some don’t wear hijaab but pray and some sisters wear the hijab and pray, so aim to wear the hijaab and pray always.

May Allah Subhan wa ta’ala bless all our sisters, you guys are the back bone of this Ummah so hold tight to the rope of Allah Subhan wa ta’ala…

Quran vs. Music: 12 Simple Truths to Ponder

Music is a big part of our lives. It is a social trend, ever growing and popular worldwide.

Quran vs Music:
No doubt, you get constantly bombarded by music of all types – at shopping malls, high streets and open markets; jingles playing back-to-back on the radio, TV channels and the internet.

Nowadays, music also plays an explicit role in many educational settings and workplaces. If you are faced with such circumstantial contact with music, it could be a source of never-ending worry and stress. For many, however, especially the youth it could be a deliberate choice – living with music as nourishment and balm for the mind, body and soul.

Revealed: The Secrets our Clients Used to Earn $3 Billion

It may be perceived as a harmless activity and a source of inner peace, relaxation, creativity and inspiration. After all if it doesn’t stop you from praying, fasting and performing good deeds, what is the big deal… right?

A Case of Parallels

I look back to a learning session a few years back. Our teacher explained that Qur’an and music can never thrive harmoniously in the heart of a believer. I struggled with this simple truth for many months afterwards. And it was such a big deal for me.

Although I was learning to be a good Muslim, I continued feeding my desire albeit a negative one. This had grave consequences on my thoughts, acts of worship and lifestyle in general. I tried to think of a way to find a middle point with this seemingly parallel case. You could be faced with similar desires and inner battle right now.

‘Music or Quran?’

quran and music
Music & Quran


The Noble Qur’an needs no introduction. It is a mercy, guide and protection for mankind. It is also a powerful reminder, miracle and divine revelation. As the great scholar Ibn Qayyim said, “The Qur’an is all about tawheed”. And nothing should rank higher in terms of priority for the Muslim than upholding tawheed.

Music on the other hand is all about everything but tawheed. While you may still argue about the many benefits of music, I present you with 12 simple truths to ponder.

1. Origin

Qur’an: Speech of Allah .
Music: Created, reproduced and distributed by humans.

2. Theme

Quran: Tawheed (Oneness of Allah ), Aqeedah (creed), issues related to worship, eternal gains.
Music: The most common is lowly desires and worldly gains .

3. Benefit

Qur’an: 100% beneficial at all times, whether its being recited, listened to or pondered upon.
Music: Slight benefit for certain types and at certain times e.g., soothing music to calm down, motivational lyrics, etc.

4. Content

Quran: Related to success in this world and hereafter; also related to virtuous character, good deeds and worship.
Music: Related to acquiring success in this world only; also related to corrupt character, alcohol, drugs, carnal desires and suicide.

5. Calling

Quran: Invites to the sunnah, obedience, worship, guidance, good character, forgiveness, paradise.
Music: To a large extent, invites to sin and all things leading to possible sin (lowly desires, wealth, power, disbelief, nudity).

6. Goal

Quran: Remembrance of Allah .
Music: Distraction from remembrance of Allah .

7. Production and Replication

Quran: Has never been and cannot be produced. Allah  challenged mankind in various verses to do so.
Music: Anyone can re/produce music. There are many courses, schools and experts dedicated to learning the art.

8. General Effect

Quran: Gives soothing internal effects that are long lasting and soul nourishing; long term feel-good-effect.
Music: Gives an external soothing effect that is temporary; short term feel-good-effect.

9. Effect on Soul

Quran: Pure nourishment for the soul through spiritual cleansing and purification.
Music: Junk food for the soul through lowering of spritual strength and draining the nafs.

10. Effect on Heart

Quran: Builds a sound heart, free of diseases.
Music: Increases diseases of the heart, from doubts to desires.

11. Lifestyle

Quran: Message can blossom subliminally into a positive lifestyle and a stable personality.
Music: Message can transform lifestyle into a negative one producing an unstable, corrupt personality.

12. Connection with Allah 

Quran: Makes one develop a high degree of consciousness of Allah , taking one closer to Him.
Music: Brings about ‘gaflah’ (heedlessness) of Allah , increasing attraction to musicians.

Way Forward
The believer has a purpose driven life, seeking worldly good as well as eternal good. You may take various means and processes while seeking this good, striving to overcome your desires and remaining firm upon the truth. There is no doubt the Qur’an is the greatest personal development tool for mankind; driving self and spiritual growth, reinforcing the truth of tawheed, directing towards the fitrah and promoting self reflection.

”This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah” (Al Baqarah, 2:2)

The global music industry is worth billions of dollars and steadily increasing in revenue. Yet, they are busy innovating new ways to oppose the message of guidance by promoting music and musicians to such a high status, as a means of finding worldly success, happiness and inner peace. Don’t fall into heedlessness. Fight your nafs. And keep pondering these simple truths.

WHY IS SEXUAL INTERCOURSE FORBIDDEN DURING MENSTRUATION

MENSTRUATION:

Praise be to Allah.

Allah has forbidden men to have sexual intercourse with their wives during Menstruation.

Allah says in Glorious Quran:

“They ask you concerning menstruation. Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore, keep away from women during menses” [al-Baqarah 2:222]

From the above verse, it is clearly forbidden by Allah to do it and He, subhana-wa-taala has told us that it is harmful to both men and women.

Science has revealed some of the harms that are disclosed in this verse but they have not fully managed to describe all of them. In this article, we will try to discuss some of those.

No Sex in Menstruation
Forbidden in Menstruation

Having intercourse with a menstruating woman must be avoided because it results in an increase in the flow of menstrual blood as the veins of the uterus are congested and prone to rupture. Hence, they get damaged easily and may result in injury. The walls of the vagina are also susceptible to injury so the likelihood of inflammation is increased. Also, mans penis can also be inflamed due to irritation caused during intercourse.

Having intercourse during menstruating is also off-putting to both the man and the woman because of the presence of blood and its smell. It may make a person uninterested in sex.

Dr. Muhammad al-Baar said, “speaking of the harm that may be caused to the menstruating woman: The lining of the uterus is shed during menstruation, and the uterus is scarred as a result, just like when the skin is flayed. So it is vulnerable to bacteria and the introduction of the bacteria that are to be found at the tip of the penis poses a great danger to the uterus.”

Hence we can conclude that the penetration of the penis into the vagina at the time of menstruation is the induction of germs at the time when the body is unable to fight them off.

 

Some doctors also believe that harm is not limited to the uterus and sexual organs but may be spread to other organs as well.

Intercourse is Forbidden During Menstruation
Intercourse is Forbidden During Menstruation

1. The spread of infection to the fallopian tubes, which may then become blocked, which in turn may lead to infertility or ectopic pregnancy, which is the most dangerous kind of pregnancy.

2. Infection may be spread to the urethra, bladder, and kidneys; Diseases of the urinary tract are serious and chronic in many cases.

3. An increase of germs in the menstrual blood, especially gonorrhea germs.

4. It may cause immense pain in the pelvic region in women as menstruation is accompanied by pains, the severity of which varies from one woman to another.

5. Many women suffer depression and stress during menstruation and intercourse may cause an increase in it.

6. Women’s sexual desire decreases and many women have no interest at all in sex during their periods. The entire reproductive system is in a state that is akin to sickness, so intercourse at this time is not natural and serves no purpose, rather it can cause a great deal of harm.

It is not the only woman who is affected by this rather men may also be affected by this action.

It may cause infection which may result in sterility in men. The severe pains suffered as a result of this infection may be even worse than the sterility it causes.

Stop intercourse in menstruation
Stop intercourse in menstruation

And there are many other harmful effects, some of which have not yet been discovered, but Allaah has referred to them when He said (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore, keep away from women during menses and go not unto them till they are purified (from menses and have taken a bath)”

[al-Baqarah 2:222]

Allaah has described it as adha, a harmful thing both for the wife and for the husband, and other harmful effects about which Allaah knows best.

Thus it becomes clear that the prohibition on intercourse at the time of menstruation is not just because of the blood, rather it is for many reasons as stated above.

However, it is permissible for a man to be intimate with his wife, without having intercourse (at the time of menstruation).

And Allah knows best.

GRAVE WORSHIP

GRAVE WORSHIP IS HARAM – A MAJOR SHIRK

Building mosques over the graves of Prophets and righteous people, or over places connected to their lives, is something which the perfect sharee’ah of Islam came to forbid and warn against, and curses those who do that (grave worship), because it is one of the means that lead to shirk and exaggeration about the Prophets and the righteous people….

Grave Worship = Idol Worship
Grave Worship = Idol Worship

See More It is not permissible for graves to be left in mosques, whether that is the grave of a wali (“saint”) or of anyone else, because the Messenger (PBUH) forbade that and warned against that, and he cursed the Jews and Christians for doing that.

It was narrated that he (PBUH) said: “May Allah curse the Jews and the Christians, for they took the graves of their Prophets as places of worship.” [Bukhaari, 1330, Muslim, 529]

He (PBUH) also said: “When a righteous man died among them, they would build a place of worship over his grave and put those images in it. They are the most evil of mankind before Allaah.” (Al-Bukhaari, 427; Muslim, 528)

He (PBUH) said: “Those who came before you took the graves of their Prophets and righteous people as places of worship. Do not take graves as places of worship – I forbid you to do that.” (Narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh, 532, from Jundab ibn ‘Abd-Allaah al-Bajali).

So the Prophet (PBUH) forbade taking graves as places of worship and he cursed those who do that, stating that they are the most evil of mankind. So we must beware of that.

Jabir said: Allah’s Messenger PBUH forbade that the graves should be plastered or they be used as sitting places (for the people), or a building should be built over them. [Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2116 also Muslim: Book 4: Hadith 2114]

Grave Worship
Grave Worship

Abu Wail reported that Sayyidina Ali (RA) said to Abu Hayyaj Asadi, “I am sending you to do what the Prophet sent me to do, (that) leave no high grave without levelling it (with the ground) and no picture without obliterating it.” [Tirmidhi 1051, Sahih by Albani also Abu Dawud 3218, Nisai 2027, also Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2115]

It is known that everyone who prays at a grave (Dargah) is taking it as a place of worship, and whoever builds a mosque over a grave (Dargah) has taken it as a place of worship.

So we must keep graves far away from the mosques and not put graves inside mosques, in obedience to the command of the Prophet (PBUH) and so as to avoid the curse issued by our Lord against those who build places of worship over graves (grave worship), because when a person prays in a mosque in which there is a grave, the Shaytaan tempt them to call upon the deceased or to seek his help, or to pray to him or prostrate to him, thus committing major shirk (polytheism) and going out of fold of Islam.

Everyone who looks at the state of the Muslim world and the shirk and exaggeration that have come about because of building mosques over tombs, venerating them, adorning them and appointing custodians for them, will realize that this is indeed a means that leads to ‘Grave Worshipping’.

Clearance Of Two Doubts.

Doubt No. 1: Some people use the story of the People of the Cave to support their specious argument that this is allowed: “(then) those who won their point said (most probably the disbelievers): ‘We verily, shall build a place of worship over them’” [al-Kahf 18:21]

The answer to that is: that Allaah has told us about the leaders and powerful people of that time, and that they said these words. That does not imply that ALLAH liked that or approved of them, rather ALLAH said that by way of blaming them and condemning their action.

This is indicated by the fact that the Messenger (PBUH) to whom this verse was revealed and who was the most knowledgeable of people as to how it should be interpreted, forbade his ummah to build mosques over graves, warned them against doing so, and cursed and condemned those who did that.

If that had been permissible, then the Messenger of Allaah (PBUH) would not have discouraged it in such emphatic terms, and gone to the extent of cursing those who did it, and said that they are the most evil of mankind before Allaah.

This is sufficient to convince the seeker of truth. Even if we were to assume that building places of worship over graves was permitted to those who came before us, it is not permissible for us to follow their example in that, because our sharee’ah abrogates the laws that came before it, and our Messenger (PBUH) is the Final Messenger whose sharee’ah is complete and universal.

He has forbidden us to build mosques over graves, so it is not permissible for us to go against him.

Doubt No. 2: There is another specious argument put forward by those who worship graves, namely the fact that the grave of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is in his mosque.

Islam forbids erecting structures over graves, and commands that any such structures should be knocked down, as it surely leads to Grave worshipping (grave worship) thereby causing to commit shirk (polytheism- associaing partners with ALLAH) and eventually making the one to leave the fold of Islam.

The kalimah of Tawheed gets nullified and the one no longer remains Muslim. Shaykh‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (rahmahullah) said: The answer to that is that the Sahaabah (radhiallahuanhum) did not bury him in his mosque, rather they buried him in the house of ‘Aa’ishah (radhiallahu anha).

When al-Waleed ibn ‘Abd al-Malik expanded the Mosque of the Prophet (PBUH) at the end of the first century AH, he incorporated the room into the mosque, but he did wrong thereby, and some of the scholars denounced him for that, but he believed that there was nothing wrong with it for the sake of expanding the mosque.

It is not permissible for a Muslim to take that as evidence that mosques may be built over graves, or that people may be buried inside mosques, because that goes against the saheeh ahaadeeth, and because it is a means that may lead to shirk by associating the occupants of the graves in worship with Allaah.

End quote. Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 5/388, 389. Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullah) was asked about the ruling on praying in a mosque in which there is a grave.

Grave Worship
Grave Worship

He replied: Praying in a mosque in which there is a grave falls into two categories:

(i) Either the grave was there before the mosque, and the mosque was built over the grave. It is essential to shun this mosque and not pray therein, and the one who built it must knock it down; if he does not do so, then the Muslim authorities must knock it down.

(ii) Or the mosque was there before the grave, and the deceased was buried after the mosque was built. In the case the grave must be dug up, and the remains taken out and buried with the people (in the graveyard). As for praying in such a mosque, it is permissible so long as the grave is not in front of the worshipper, because the Prophet (PBUH) forbade praying in the direction of graves.

With regard to the grave of the Prophet (PBUH) which is incorporated into his mosque, it is well known that the Mosque of the Prophet (PBUH) was built before his death, and was not built over his grave.

It is also well known that the Prophet (PBUH) was not buried in the mosque, rather he was buried in his house which was separate from the mosque.

At the time of al-Waleed ibn ‘Abd al-Malik he wrote to his governor in Madeenah, who was ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Azeez, in 88 AH, ordering him to dismantle the Prophet’s Mosque and add to it the rooms of the wives of the Prophet (PBUH).

‘Umar ibn Azeez gathered the prominent people and fuqaha’, and read the letter of the caliph al-Waleed to them. That caused them distress, and they said: “Leave it as it is, that is better.”
And it was narrated that Sa’eed ibn al-Musayyib denounced the incorporation of ‘Aa’ishah’s room into the mosque, as if he feared that the grave would be taken as a place of worship.
Umar ibn Azeez wrote a letter to that effect to al-Waleed, and al-Waleed sent word to him ordering him to carry out his instructions, so ‘Umar had no other choice.

So you see that the grave of the Prophet (PBUH) was not placed in the mosque, and the mosque was not built over it, so there are no grounds for those who try to quote this as evidence that people may be buried inside mosques or that mosques may be built over graves.

It is proven that the Prophet (PBUH) said: “May the curse of Allaah be upon the Jews and the Christians; they have taken the graves of their Prophets as places of worship.” He said that as he was dying, as a warning to his ummah against doing what they did.

When Umm Salamah told him of a church that she had seen in Ethiopia and the images therein, he said: “Those people, if a righteous man among them died, they would build a place of worship over his grave (grave worship).

Grave Worship
Grave Worship

They are the most evil of people before Allaah.” And it was narrated from Ibn Mas’ood (RA) that the Prophet (PBUH) said: “Among the most evil of people upon whom the Hour will come when they are still alive are those who take graves as places of worship.”
Narrated by Imam Ahmad with a jayyid isnaad. [Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 12/question no. 292]

Jabir (RA) said: “Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) forbade that the graves should be plastered or they be used as sitting places (for the people), or a building should be built over them.” [Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2116 also Muslim: Book 4: Hadith 2114]

Abu Wail reported that Sayyidina Ali (RA) said to Abu Hayyaj Asadi, “I am sending you to do what the Prophet sent me to do, (that) leave no high grave without levelling it (with the ground) and no picture without obliterating it.” [Tirmidhi 1051, Sahih by Albani Abu Dawud 3218, Nisai 2027, also Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2115]

ALLAH (SWT) Says: “Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allâh only. And those who take Auliyâ’ (protectors, helpers, lords, gods) besides Him (say): “We worship them (grave worship) only that they may bring us near to Allâh.” Verily, Allâh will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allâh guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever.” [Surah Zumar, 039:003]

ALLAH (SWT) Says: “And they worship besides Allâh things that harm them not, nor profit them, and they say: “These are our intercessors with Allâh.” [Surah Yunus, 10: 18]

Hijab: The Camel Hump Hijab Style

“HIJAB” “BEWARE MY SISTERS IN ISLAM, AVOID WEARING MODERN WAYS OF HIJAB’S, KEEP IT NICE, SIMPLE AND WELL COVERED.”

Many Muslimahs are taking this trend and forgetting that it is wrong for them to wear the Hijab in the camel hump style. The bigger you do the hump the more you look like an alien! Muslimahs that wear the camel hump style are cursed.

The Prophet  Sallallahu alayhi wasallam also stated,

“There will be in the last of my Ummah, scantily dressed women, the hair on the top of their heads like a camel’s hump (hijab). Curse them, for verily they are cursed.” [At-Tabarani and Sahih Muslim]

camel hump hijab forbidden in islam

Abu Hurairah relates that the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wasallam said,

“There are two categories among the inhabitants of Hell whom I have not encountered. The first are people who carry whips like the tails of cows and beat the people with them. The second are women, clothed yet naked, drawn to licentiousness and enticing others to it, their heads like the swaying humps of camels (hijab). They will neither enter Paradise nor even smell its fragrance, though its fragrance can be found to a great distance.” [Sahih Muslim]

(Hijab) Think about the way you dress. Is it to please others? Or is it to please Allah?

Islam, the name of our beautiful religion, simply means “submission” to Allah alone. He is aware of our intentions, which must be aimed to be done for Him, simply due to the fact that He is our Creator and He has ordered it. As is said in the Qur’an,

“And He is Allah, [the only deity] in the heavens and earth. He knows your secret and what you make public, and He knows that which you earn.” [6:3]

Allah clearly illustrates how a woman should wear (hijab) it properly in the Qur’an

“And say to the believing women to lower their gazes, and to guard their private parts, and not to expose their beauty except what is apparent of it, and to extend their head covers to cover their chests (hijab), and not to display their beauty except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their womenfolk, or what their right hands rule (slaves), or from the men who have no physical desire, or the small children who are not aware of the private aspects of women, and not to stomp their feet (on the ground) so as to make known what they hide of their adornments (jewelry).

And turn to Allah in repentance together, Oh Believers, so that you may succeed.” [24:31]

PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF FROM THE TORMENT OF HELL FIRE !!

MAY ALLAH HELP US ALL, AMEEN…

HIJAB IN ISLAM

WHO IS ALLAH?

All the praises for Allah, who is the author of all existence and the most generous to his creation, while HE (swt) is also the all compelling.

HE (swt) is the only one worthy of our worship having no partners, no associates, no sons, no daughters, no one whom he must consult.

And no one or anything has any comparison with HIM (swt). All praise is for Allah, who is the king of all who claim sovereignty.

The only one who has the right to legislate for HIS creations. HE (swt) is the giver of life, HE (swt) is the causer of death while death has no effect upon HIM (swt) because HE is the ever living, the self subsisting, the eternal and the only absolute.

All the praises  for Allah, who has power over all things and there is in reality no power, and no strength, no influence to cause benefit or death to men except through HIM (swt).

It is HE (swt) who created this complex world, the seen and the unseen, the evident and the hidden, the earth and all over that is on it and everything that is in it. It is HE (swt) who sent HIS messengers and prophets (peace be upon them all) with the common message of strict monothiesm which simply means that there is absolutely no one worthy of worship, no one worthy of our obeidience except the almighty the one the absolute and who has no partners.

The Quran 59:22–24

Al-Quran 59:22. He is Allah. There is no god but He, the Knower of secrets and declarations. He is the Compassionate, the Merciful.

Al-Quran 59:23. He is Allah; besides Whom there is no god; the Sovereign, the Holy, the Peace-Giver, the Faith-Giver, the Overseer, the Almighty, the Omnipotent, the Overwhelming. Glory be to Allah, beyond what they associate.

Al-Quran 59:24.  He is Allah; the Creator, the Maker, the Designer. His are the Most Beautiful Names. Whatever is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him. He is the Majestic, the Wise.

ALLAH

The Muslims prefer calling the Supreme Creator, Allah, instead of by the English word ‘God’. The Arabic word, ‘Allah’, is pure and unique, unlike the English word ‘God’, which can be played around with.

If you add ‘s’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Gods’, that is the plural of God. Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If you add ‘dess’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Goddess’ that is a female God. There is nothing like male Allah or female Allah. Allah has no gender. If you add the word ‘father’ to ‘God’ it becomes ‘God-father’. God-father means someone who is a guardian. There is no word like ‘Allaah-Abba’ or ‘Allaah-father’. If you add the word ‘mother’ to ‘God’, it becomes ‘God-mother’. There is nothing like ‘Allaah-Ammi’, or ‘Allaah-mother’ in Islam. Allaah is a unique word. If you prefix tin before the word God, it becomes tin-God i.e., fake God.

Allaah is a unique word, which does not conjure up any mental picture nor can it be played around with. Therefore the Muslims prefer using the Arabic word ‘Allaah’ for the Almighty. Sometimes, however, while speaking to the non-Muslims we may have to use the inappropriate word God, for Allah. Since the intended audience of this article is general in nature, consisting of both Muslims as well as non-Muslims, I have used the word God instead of Allaah in several places in this article.

God does not become a human being:

Some may argue that God does not become a human being but only takes a human form. If God only takes a human form but does not become a human being, He should not possess any human qualities. We know that all the ‘God-men’, have human qualities and failings. They have all the human needs such as the need to eat, sleep, etc.

The worship of God in human form is therefore a logical fallacy and should be abhorred in all its forms and manifestations.

That is the reason why the Qur’an speaks against all forms of anthropomorphism. The Glorious Qur’an says in the following verse:

“There is nothing whatever like unto Him.”  [Al-Qur’an 42:11]

WHO IS ALLAH?

“QABRON KI PUJA” “Grave Worship”

Be Aware of “QABRON KI PUJA” “Grave Worship” (Shirk):

In many Muslim countries around the world people build Masjids on the graves of pious people, these are sometimes called “Dargah” or “Mazar” etc. And people go to those places and ask the dead person to give them a child or whatever they need “Grave Worship”. Now asking anyone but Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) for anything is Shirk. Here we want to clear up that from the Qur’an and very clear Sahih Hadith that we are NOT supposed to build structures or Masjids on the graves of pious people or anyone else.

It is also shirk to make a vow to any other than Allaah, as is done by those who vow to bring candles or lights for the occupants of the graves. Please Don’t follow blindly what your parents and relatives did. Also try to know what our prophet (peace be upon him) and Qur’an says.

Lets analyze – In the light of Hadith: 

Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith # 419
Narrated A’isha (R.A) Um Habiba (R.A) and Um Salama (R.A) mentioned about a church they had seen in Ethiopia in which there were pictures. They told the Prophet (S.A.W) about it, on which he said, “If any religious man dies amongst those people they would build a place of worship at his grave and make these pictures in it. They will be the worst creature in the sight of Allah on the Day of Resurrection.”

Sahih Muslim: Book 4, Hadith # 2116
Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah (R.A) Rasulullah (S.A.W) forbade that the graves should be plastered, or they be used as sitting places (for the people), or a building should be built over them.
Note: This hadith makes it very clear that we are NOT supposed to build ANYTHING over them. May Allah (Swt) save us , as many of the Muslim today build strong plastered graves and this is against the order of Rasulullah (S.A.W)!

Sahih Al-Bkhari: Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith # 427
Narrated A’isha (R.A) and ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (R.A) When the last moment of the life of Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) came he started putting his ‘Khamisa’ on his face and when he felt hot and short of breath he took it off his face and said, “May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.” The Prophet (S.A.W) was warning (Muslims) of what those had done.

Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith # 428
Narrated Abu Huraira (RAA) Rasulullah (SAW) said, “May Allah’s curse be on the Jews for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.”

Sahih Muslim Book 4, Number 1083
Narrated Jundub ibn Abdullah (R.A) “I heard from the Apostle of Allah (SAW) five days before his death and he said: I stand acquitted before Allah that I took anyone of you as friend, for Allah has taken me as His friend, as he took Ibrahim as His friend. Had I taken any one of my Ummah as a friend, I would have taken Abu Bakr as a friend. Beware of those who preceded you and used to take the graves of their prophets and righteous men as places of worship, but you must not take graves as mosques; I forbid you to do that.

Sahih Muslim Book 4, Hadith # 2121
Narrated Abu Marthad al-Ghanawi (R.A) Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W) said: Do not sit on the graves and do not pray facing towards them.

In the light of Qur’an: 

They belief that dead Awliyaa’ (“saints”) can fulfil one’s needs or help at times of distress, and calling upon them for aid.
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him . . .” [Al-Israa, 17:23]

Similarly, they call upon dead Prophets, righteous people and others to intercede for them or to rescue them from some calamity, but
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah ? Little do you remember. [An-Naml, 27:62]

Some of them have adopted the habit of mentioning the name of a shaykh or wali (“saint”) when they stand up, or sit down, or stumble, or encounter problems or distress, so they might say “O Muhammad!” or “O ‘Ali!” or “O Husayn!” or “O Badawi!” or “O Jeelaani!” or “O Shaadhili!” or “O Rifaa’i!” – or they may call upon al-’Aydaroos or Sayyidah Zaynab or Ibn ‘Alwaan.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
Indeed, those whom you call upon besides Allah are servants like you. So call upon them and let them respond to you, if you should be truthful. [Al-A’raf, 7:194]

Some of those who worship graves walk around them as if in “Tawaaf” and acknowledge their corners or touch them, kiss them, wipe their faces with their dust, prostrate towards them when they see them or stand before them in fear and humility, praying for whatever they need of healing from some disease, or for a child or for help with some difficulty. Sometimes they call upon the occupant of the grave, saying “O my master, I have come to you from far away, so do not let me down.”

But Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever dies calling on someone else as a rival to Allah, will enter Hell.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 8/176).

Some of them shave their heads at the graves, and some have books with titles like Manaasik Hajj al-Mashaahid (“The Rituals of Pilgrimage to Shrines”), mashaahid or shrines referring to graves or tombs of ‘Awliyaa’. Some of them believe that the ‘Awliyaa’ are running the affairs of the universe and that they have the power to benefit or harm (Astagfirullah).

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. [Al-Yunus, 10:107]

It is also shirk to make a vow to any other than Allah, as is done by those who vow to bring candles or lights for the occupants of the graves.
Those who worship anyone but Allah or associate partners with Allah, Allah says the following in the Quran:

“And invoke not besides Allah any that will neither profit you nor hurt you, but if (in case) you did so, you shall certainly be one of the polytheists and wrong doers. And if Allah touches you with hurt, there is none who can remove it but He; and if He intends any good for you, there is none who can repel His favours which He causes it to reach whomsoever of His slaves He wills. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” [Qur’an, 10: 106-107]

Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray. [Qur’an, 4:116]

“Verily whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah Has forbidden paradise for him and the fire will be his abode” [Qur’an, 5:72]

ALLAH’S PUNISHMENT FOR WORSHIPPING ANYONE OR ASSOCIATING ANY PARTNERS TO HIM IS HELL / JAHANNUM – WITH NO RETURN AND NO FORGIVENESS.

May Allah (SWT) guide us to the right path. Ameen.

WHAT DOES ISLAM SAY ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY AND LESBIANISM?

Homosexuality: “This sin, the impact of which makes one’s skin crawl, which words cannot describe, is evidence of perverted instincts, total collapse of shame and honor, and extreme filthiness of character and soul… The heavens, the Earth, and the mountains tremble from the impact of this sin. The angels shudder as they anticipate the punishment of Allah to descend upon the people who commit this indescribable sin.”

 Dr. Abdul Aziz Al-Fawzan, The Evil Sin of Homosexuality

Islam doesn’t merely disapprove homosexuality, it terms it as a vile and evil sin that is considered worse than fornication and adultery and is punishable by stoning to death.

The homosexual person goes against the natural fitrah (disposition) which Allah has created for mankind and Allah has warned against falling into such evil sins. The homosexuality causes various diseases that no one can deny. It causes families to break up and may lead a person to leave his work and family because he is occupied with such perversions. A person is left with no shame and honor.  Allah has forbidden it and any sane, reasonable and modest person would not question on the prohibition of this immorality. As a Muslim, we must believe that whatever Allah has forbidden is indeed harmful to mankind and vice-versa.

Ibn al-Qayyim said: 

Both of them – fornication and homosexuality – involve immorality that goes against the wisdom of Allaah’s creation and commandment. For homosexuality involves innumerable evil and harms, and the one to whom it is done would be better off being killed than having this done to him, because after that he will become so evil and so corrupt that there can be no hope of his being reformed, and all good is lost for him, and he will no longer feel any shame before Allaah or before His creation. The semen of the one who did that to him will act as a poison on his body and soul. The scholars differed as to whether the one to whom it is done will ever enter Paradise. There are two opinions which I heard Shaykh al-Islam (may Allaah have mercy on him) narrate.”

(Al-Jawaab al-Kaafi, p. 115).

Quranic evidence:

“…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds…. And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)” –Quran (7:80-84)

From this verse, we can conclude that the man who prefers a man over women are indeed transgressors and liable to punishment and their punishment is death by stoning as what happened to the people of Lot. It is an interpretation of the majority of Muslim scholars that the “raining of stones” means the destruction of such people by stoning. (Inexplicably, the story is also repeated in three other suras: 15:74, 27:58 and 29:40).

“Will ye commit abomination such as no creature ever did before you?”  Quran (7:18)

This verse clearly establishes that homosexuality as a different form and much worse than the adultery and fornication. According to Arabic grammar, it is called as worst sin whereas other forms of Zina are considered as great sins. From here we can conclude that it is indeed a great evil.

Other Quranic evidence:

“Verily, you practice your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds (by committing great sins)’” (al-A’raaf 7:80-81)

“Verily, We sent against them a violent storm of stones (which destroyed them all), except the family of Loot (Lot), them We saved in the last hour of the night” (al-Qamar 54:34)

“And (remember) Loot (Lot), when he said to his people: ‘you commit Al‑Faahishah (sodomy the worst sin) which none has preceded you in (committing) it in the ‘Aalameen (mankind and jinn)’” (al-‘Ankaboot 29:28)

Allah mentions in glorious Quran that none of the mankind or Jinn’s had committed such worst sins before the people of Lut (AS) and this was the reason for their destruction. It is a clear warning of Allah aza-wa-jal to mankind to stay away from it.

 “And (remember) Loot (Lot), We gave him Hukm (right judgment of the affairs and Prophethood) and (religious) knowledge, and We saved him from the town (folk) who practiced Al‑Khabaa’ith (evil, wicked and filthy deeds). Verily, they were a people given to evil and were Faasiqoon (rebellious, disobedient to Allaah)” (al-Anbiya’ 21:74)

The deed of homosexuality is termed as a vile, evil and filthy deed by Allah aza-wa-jal. This is the immorality which has no place in Islamic society.

Evidence from Hadith and Sira:

It was narrated that Jaabir (may Allaah be pleased with him): “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘There is nothing I fear for my ummah more than the deed of the people of Loot.’” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1457; Ibn Maajah, 2563.)

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “… cursed is the one who has intercourse with an animal, cursed is the one who does the action of the people of Loot.” (Narrated by Ahmad, 1878.)

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whoever you find doing the deed of the people of Loot, kill the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1456.)

{This Hadith : Kill the one who does it……   is for Muslim ruler, not for Common Muslims.}

In most of the Islamic countries where shariah law is strictly applied, homosexuals are beheaded,  killed by stoning or throwing from rooftops.

We as a Muslim should never support such LGBT or homosexual groups and should never think leniently about them. They don’t deserve sympathy and should be condemned. Neither should a Muslim engage in such evil practices unless he wishes to dwell in the pit of fire for the eternity.

And Allah knows best.


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad, the Seal of the Prophets and Leader of the Messengers, and upon all his family and companions. To proceed:

The month of Allah Muharram is a great and blessed month. It is the first month of the Hijri year and is one of the sacred months concerning which Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred, (i.e. the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Islamic calendar). That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein”

[Soorat at-Tawbah 9:36].

It was narrated from Abu Bakrah (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “… The year is twelve months, of which four are sacred: three consecutive months, Dhu al-Qa‘dah, Dhu al-Hijjah and Muharram, and Rajab of Mudar which comes between Jumaada and Sha‘baan.”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari (2958).

Muharram is so called because it is a sacred (muharram) month; this further emphasizes its sanctity.

The words of Allah (interpretation of the meaning): “so wrong not yourselves therein” [Soorat at-Tawbah 9:36] mean: (do not wrong yourselves) in these sacred months, because doing so is a greater sin than at other times.

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said, concerning the words of Allah “so wrong not yourselves therein” [Soorat at-Tawbah 9:36]:
(The command not to wrong yourself) applies in all months, then Allah singled out four months and made them sacred, and emphasised their sanctity, and He made sin during these months more grave, and He made righteous deeds and the reward thereof greater. Qataadah said, concerning the words “so wrong not yourselves therein”: Wrongdoing during the sacred months is more serious and incurs a greater burden of sin than in other months.

Wrongdoing is a serious matter in any circumstances, but Allah makes whatever He wills of His commands carry more weight. And he said:

Allah has chosen elites from His creation: from among the angels He chose Messengers, from among mankind He chose Messengers, from among speech He chose remembrance of Him (dhikr), from among spaces on earth He chose the mosques, from among the months He chose Ramadan and the sacred months, from among days He chose Friday (Jumu‘ah), and from among nights He chose Laylat al-Qadr. So venerate that which has been chosen by Allah, for people of understanding and wisdom respect that which has been chosen by Allah.

End quote from Tafseer Ibn Katheer (may Allah have mercy on him), commentary on Soorat at-Tawbah verse 36

The virtue of observing a great deal of naafil (supererogatory) fasts during the month of Muharram

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The best fast after Ramadan is in the month of Allah Muharram.”

Narrated by Muslim (1982).

The phrase “the month of Allah (shahr Allah)” is indicative of the veneration this month deserves, as it is attributed to Allah (in a genitive or idaafah phrase). Al-Qaari said: What appears to be the case is that what is meant is the entire month of Muharram.

But it is proven that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) never fasted any month in full apart from Ramadan. So this hadeeth is to be understood as meaning that it is encouraged to fast a great deal during the month of Muharram, not to fast the entire month.

It is proven that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) fasted a great deal during Sha‘baan, and perhaps the virtue of Muharram was not revealed to him until the end of his life, before he was able to fast during this month.

Sharh an-Nawawi ‘ala Saheeh Muslim

Allah chooses whatever He wills of times and places

Al-‘Izz ibn ‘Abd as-Salaam (may Allah have mercy on him) said: Superiority of times and places is of two types, the first of which is in worldly terms and the second is in religious or spiritual terms because of what Allah bestows upon His slaves at those times and in those places of a greater reward for deeds, such as the greater virtue of fasting Ramadan over fasting in other months or on the day of ‘Ashoora’. Its virtue is due to Allah’s generosity and kindness to His slaves during it.

May Allah sent blessings upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his family and companions.

IS ORAL OR ANAL SEX PERMISSIBLE IN ISLAM?

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful, 

Islam is a religion of modesty. It promotes modesty and shame in every act we do. In fact, modesty is something that differentiates a person from the animal. However, the issues of sexual behavior must be discussed and one should not shy away from learning about these matters as even the Sahaba (may Allah be pleased with them) would not shy away from asking questions about intimacy.

Our Prophet (saw) would also advise and teach people upon such matters despite being the most modest person the world has known. He would never be ashamed to teach the truth.

1. The first issue is regarding Oral Sex. Is it permissible? 

There are differing views about this according to different scholars. Most of the Muslim scholars are of the opinion that oral sex is permissible (halal) but disliked. As long as it does not involve swallowing the semen it is okay.

This could be said as there is no clear evidence in Quran and Sunnah that forbids it.

Shedding some more light on the issue, as far as oral sex involves kissing the private parts where there is no involvement of swallowing the semen (Mani) or pre-ejaculatory fluid (Madhi) than it is permissible, although disliked. Also, the act must not be forced on anyone and must not cause harm.

However if by oral sex means to swallow the filth, it is not permissible. The filth in all forms taken in a mouth is unlawful. These fluids are impure thus taking them orally is not permissible. If the same act is performed using a condom and filthy fluids are avoided then there is no problem in that.

In conclusion, It is not prohibited and is not haram but due to the nature of this act it is not considered to be a proper conduct of a Muslim, The mouth that is used in the Dikhr of Allah, recite Quran and send salutations on Prophet Muhammad (saw), cannot be used in such filthy and dirty practices and should be avoided. A Muslim of high morality and conduct will not imitate a non-Muslim and will avoid it.

2. The second issue is regarding Anal Sex. Is it permissible? 

There is no question in the fact that anal sex is totally prohibited in Islam. As Allah azawajal mentions in holy Quran clearly: “Say: They are hurt and a pollution; so keep away from women in their courses and do not approach them until they are clean. But when they have purified themselves ye may approach them in a manner, time, or place ordained for you by Allah. For Allah loves those who turn to Him constantly and he loves those who keep themselves pure and clean.” (Quran, 2:222)

One may find many narrations regarding this issue of Messenger of Allah (saw) that forbid it straight away. “The one who has intercourse with his wife in her anus has disavowed himself of that which was revealed to Muhammad ﷺ.” (Abu Dawud) “Allah will not look (with mercy) at the one that has anal sex with his wife” (meaning on the day of Qiyamah). (Sunan Nasa’i) “Allah will not look at a man who has intercourse with a woman in her anus.” (Tirmidhi)

“Allah is not too shy, to tell the truth,” three times. “Do not have intercourse with women in their back passages.” (Ibn Majah)

“Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 2157 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet (saw) said: the who has intercourse with his wife through her anus is accursed.”

“Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 3895 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet (saw) said: If anyone resorts to a diviner and believes in what he says, or has intercourse with his wife when she is menstruating or has intercourse with his wife through her anus, he has nothing to do with what has been sent down to Muhammad (saw)!”

In conclusion, it is totally haram and must be abstained from. May Allah guide us.

3. Sex during menstruation (Haidh) 

The Quran and clearly prohibited the intercourse of a husband and a wife during menstruation. Allah Azawajal says in Holy Quran: “They ask you (O Prophet) regarding menstruation. Say It his hurtful and impure. So abstain from women (sexually) in menstruation.” (Sura al-Baqarah, V.222) Also In numerous hadith, it is mentioned that intercourse during menstruation is unlawful. The Prophet (saw) said: “Approach from the front or the back, but avoid anal sex and sex during menstruation.” (Tirmidhi) Hence it is unlawful and must be avoided.

May Allah guide us and protect us. 

Avoid these 7 Deadly Sins that doom a person to Hell

The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) explained the 7 Deadly Sins that doom a person to Hell in a saheeh hadeeth that was narrated by the two Shaykhs, al-Bukhaari and Muslim, in as-Saheehayn, in which it was narrated that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Avoid the seven sins that doom a person to Hell.” We said: What are they, O Messenger of Allah?

He said: “Associating others with Allah (shirk); witchcraft; killing a soul whom Allah has forbidden us to kill, except in cases dictated by Islamic law; consuming orphans’ wealth; consuming riba; fleeing from the battlefield; and slandering chaste, innocent women.”

7 Deadly Sins :

1. The sin of Shrik.

The greatest of the sins in the eyes of Allah is associating partners with him. It leads to doom with no hope of coming out of it. The person who dies in a state of shrik will abide in hell for all eternity.

Allah says in Holy Quran.

“Verily, whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the Zalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers) there are no helpers”

[al-Maa’idah 5:72]

“And indeed it has been revealed to you (O Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)), as it was to those (Allah’s Messengers) before you: “If you join others in worship with Allah, (then) surely (all) your deeds will be in vain, and you will certainly be among the losers”

[az-Zumar 39:65].

“It is not for the Mushrikoon (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah), to maintain the Mosques of Allah (i.e. to pray and worship Allah therein, to look after their cleanliness and their building, etc.), while they witness against their ownselves of disbelief. The works of such are in vain and in Fire shall they abide”

[at-Tawbah 9:17].

2. Witchcraft and Black Magic. 

Witchcraft involves the shrik along with harming the creation of Allah and misguiding people.

The one who performs black magic and the one who seeks help in it will dwell in hell for all eternity if they die in this state. It causes harm to people and indicates that the person has no belief in Allah and hence seeks refuge in Jinns and magicians.

Allah, may He be glorified, said concerning the sorcerers of Pharaoh (interpretation of the meaning):

“…their ropes and their sticks, by their magic, appeared to him as though they moved fast”

[Ta-Ha 20:66]

“So when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people, and struck terror into them, and they displayed a great magic”

[al-A‘raaf 7:116].

It was proven from Ameer al-Mu’mineen ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that he wrote to his governors in greater Syria and elsewhere, instructing them to execute every practitioner of witchcraft, male or female, because of the great extent of their evil and the danger they posed.

3. Murder. 

Killing a soul or harming someone to the extent that a person dies and whom Allah has forbidden to kill is a serious crime, regarding which Allah says:

“And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein, and the Wrath and the Curse of Allah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him”

[an-Nisa’ 4:93].

It is a major sin but a lesser a degree than shrik. It is a major sin like fornication/adultery, theft and so on. The one who does that is not a disbeliever unless he regards it as permissible to do that. Hence Allah, may He be glorified, says concerning him:

“And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein, and the Wrath and the Curse of Allah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him”

[an-Nisa’ 4:93].

He will abide in that punishment forever if he regards it as permissible; if he does not regard it as permissible, he will abide therein for a long time, but it will come to an end. The stay of the sinners (among the Muslims) in Hell will be lengthy, but it will have an end. As for the disbelievers, their stay will have no end.

4. Consuming Riba(interest) 

This refers to the dealing with a trade that is based on riba.  Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, says concerning it (interpretation of the meaning):

“Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba”

[al-Baqarah 2:275]

“O you who believe! Fear Allah and give up what remains (due to you) from Ribaa (from now onward) if you are (really) believers.

And if you do not do it, then take a notice of war from Allah and His Messenger”

[al-Baqarah 2:278].

Consuming riba or working in riba-based banks is a major sin which is very essential to avoid.

5. Consuming Orphans wealth. 

An orphan is one who has lost his father at an early age and has not reached puberty yet. It is obligatory to every person to be kind to orphans, protect their wealth, make it grow and handle it with care. The one who spoils the orphan’s wealth and consumes it unlawfully is subject to a stern warning because the orphan is weak and he has transgressed against him and consumed his wealth. This stern warning is addressed to him, but he is not a disbeliever; rather he is a sinner, so long as he does not regard that as permissible.

6. Fleeing from the battlefield. 

If there is a battle between Muslims and disbelievers and a Muslim person flees from the battlefield deserting his brothers and sisters that he is liable to stern punishment.

 “unless it be a stratagem of war, or to retreat to a troop (of his own)” [al-Anfaal 8:16]

that is, unless he is recruiting to prepare himself, bring his weapon and put on his armour in preparation for fighting, which does not do any harm, or he is moving from one detachment to another, or from one rank to another, or from one group to another, as part of a plan against the enemy.

7. Slandering chaste, innocent believing women. 

Slandering anyone in itself is a grave sin but Allah especially warns us against slandering a chaste woman, which means accusing them of Zina(fornication or adultery). They may say: so and so committed Zina or so and so-called someone to commit Zina but he is lying. This is one of the seven sins that doom one to Hell and for which one deserves to be given eighty lashes, as Allah, may He be exalted, says :

“And those who accuse chaste women, and produce not four witnesses, flog them with eighty stripes” [an-Noor 24:4].

Slandering chaste women is a major sin, as is slandering chaste men, but because such accusations are usually made against women, the text speaks of women. Nevertheless, if someone slanders a chaste man, and says that he committed Zina, he has to produce four witnesses or else be given eighty lashes.

These sins are so evil and dangerous that a person engaged in them are certainly doomed to hell if they do not correct their ways and repent to Allah azawajal before death.

 We ask Allah to protect us and Guide us
