In the Shade of Soorah At-Tawbah (023)

Hadhrat ‘Ikrimah رضي الله عنه, at the Battle of Yarmook, strove and excelled like nobody else did, and he was saying: “Who will give me the Bay’ah ‘alal Maut (The Oath of Allegiance to fight to the death)? Who will give me the Bay’ah ‘alal Maut?”

He stood in front of the tent of Hadhrat Khaalid رضي الله عنه, and he was the cousin of Hadhrat Khaalid رضي الله عنه. All of them were Makhzoomis, from the Banu Makhzoom. He was Hadhrat ‘Ikrimah ibn ‘Amr ibn Hishaam al-Makhzoomi رضي الله عنه, and Hadhrat Khaalid ibnul Waleed ibnul Mugheerah al-Makhzoomi رضي الله عنه. Hence, they were cousins.

So, he stood in front of the tent of Hadhrat Khaalid رضي الله عنه and said: “Who will give me the Bay’ah ‘alal Maut?”

Hadhrat Khaalid رضي الله عنه said: “O ‘Ikrimah! If you are killed, it would affect the Muslims.”

He said: “Who will give me the Bay’ah ‘alal Maut?”

O `Ikrimah! The Muslims are saying to him: “Have mercy on yourself, O ‘Ikrimah!”

He used to plunge into the rows upon rows of the Mushrikeen and be covered in blood from injuries at times whilst injuring (the enemy) in turn.

“Have mercy on yourself, O ‘Ikrimah!”

He would say (to them): “I used to be severe in my fight against Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم, so shall I not be even more severe now in fighting the enemies of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم!?”

On the Day of Yarmook, Hadhrat ‘Ikrimah رضي الله عنه became Shaheed. Sub-haanallaah! Sub-haanallaah!

“Indeed, one of you will do the deeds of the People of the Fire until when there is between him and it (no more than) a cubit, the Verdict (i.e. Decree of Allaah) overtakes him so he does the deeds of the People of Jannah, and thus he enters it.”

Hadhrat ‘Ikrimah رضي الله عنه

Likewise, Hadhrat Ka’b ibn Zuhair ibn Abi Salmaa رضي الله عنه came, returned and repented before Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم.

In the case of a mushrik, he is to repent, or be killed, or leave the Jazeeratul ‘Arab.

{“So kill the Mushrikeen wherever you find them…”}

Al-Qurtubi says here: “In whatever form you wish.”

What is important is that you kill him. From this comes the generality of the various types of killing.

‘Abdus Saboor Afghani from Kabul. His age is around about 25 years old. I said to him: “O ‘Abdus Saboor, how many Communists have you killed?”

He is a Mujaahid fighting inside of Kabul.

He said: “Those whom I have slaughtered with my hand, with the knife, are 29.”

He slaughtered them!

“As for those whom I shot with bullets together with the Mujaahideen, then I do not know how many they were.”

He would be walking in the street, meet one of (the Communists) and say to him: “Friend!” or “Brother! Read this letter for me.” At the side of a wall, and he would slaughter him. If you slaughter him with a knife, the knife must be a sharp knife.

“Let one of you sharpen his blade and give ease to his dhabeehah (slaughtered animal).”

Yes.

“Indeed, Allaah has prescribed ihsaan (doing good) in everything, so when you kill, then kill in a good way (i.e. without mutilating) and when you slaughter, slaughter in a good way. Let one of you sharpen his blade and give rest to his dhabeehah.”

Give rest to the slaughtered animal.

You want to kill him (i.e. the enemy), kill him quickly. As for torturing him, cutting off his ear, cutting off his nose…this is muthlah (mutilation) and is not permissible, neither with the living nor with the dead. Torture is not permissible. Do you want to take revenge from him while he’s dead?

For this reason, when the patriarch was killed, they carried his head to Hadhrat Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه, so Hadhrat Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه became angry and forbade them from cutting off heads.

[At this juncture, one of the brothers said to the Shaikh: “This is qisaas (retribution).” The Shaikh carried on but the brother continued to debate the Shaikh on this issue.]

Qisaas (retribution) is to kill. The qisaas is that you kill him. The ruling of the `Uraniyyeen whose eyes were pierced with iron rods, and their hands and feet were cut off, and they were thrown into al-Harrah in a state of thirst, to scream out for people to give them water, and (the people) refused and they died like that, out of thirst – this was abrogated by the prohibition of muthlah (mutilation). Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم forbade muthlah (mutilation). Khalaas (end of story). O my brother, just kill (the kaafir soldier). Is there any calamity worse than that he dies as a kaafir? What do you want to do with him? Will you cut off his hand? Will you cut off his foot? In front of him is the `adhaab of Jahannam, the `adhaab of the grave. These people are wept over, Wallaahi, such a person is wept over that he dies as a kaafir.

{“So Allaah caused them to taste the punishment of disgrace in this worldly life, and the punishment of the Aakhirah is even more disgraceful, and they will not be helped.”}

[Az-Zumar: 26]

What calamity is worse than that he dies as a kaafir and goes to Jahannam?

In the Shade of Soorah At-Tawbah (022)

{“So fulfil their treaty with them up to its stipulated term…”}

There was an agreement between Hadhrat Mu’aawiyah رضي الله عنه and the Romans, and before that agreement had ended, he intended to launch an attack against Rome, so he mobilised the army and sent them out, and suddenly there was a man riding a she-camel, saying: “Fulfilment and not treachery! Fulfilment and not treachery! Fulfilment and not treachery!”

They asked: “Who is this? Who is this?”

Behold! It was Hadhrat ‘Umar ibn ‘Anbasah رضي الله عنه. He sat with Hadhrat Mu’aawiyah رضي الله عنه and said to him: “This (action of yours) opposes the Sunnah of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم.”

{“So fulfil their treaty with them up to its stipulated term…”}

Or:

{“Throw back (cancel) the (treaty) that you have contracted with them (in a manner that you and they are) on equal footing (i.e. in such a way that both of you are now aware that no treaty exists)…”}

Hence, Hadhrat Mu’aawiyah رضي الله عنه ordered the Muslim army to return.

{“So fulfil their treaty with them up to its stipulated term. Indeed, Allaah loves the Muttaqeen.”}

Allaah! Allaah!

The reality is that the Fuqahaa had explained this in great detail, and it is narrated in the Saheeh that two of the companions of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم were met by the Quraish, who captured them whilst they were on their way to Badr. They said: “Where are you two going?” They said: “To Madeenah.” They said: “Are you going to fight alongside Muhammad?” They said: “We are not going to fight you.”

They both went to Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم whlist Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم was heading to Badr. They said: “Yaa Rasoolallaah, the Quraish released us on condition that we do not fight them.”

He said: “We will fulfil their condition and seek the Help of Allaah against them.”

Yaa Salaam! Yaa Salaam! Yaa Salaam! Fulfilment of the treaty. With who? With the Mushrikeen! Today, you ardently wish to find a Muslim who will fulfil his agreement with you. You really wish for it! He makes an agreement with you today and breaks it the very same night.

‘Abdun Naasir sends a message of congratulations to Imaam Ahmad and mobilises as-Sallaal to carry out a revolution in Northern Yemen.

What is important is:

{“So fulfil their treaty with them up to its stipulated term. Indeed, Allaah loves the Muttaqeen. Then, when the Sacred Months have passed, kill the Mushrikeen wherever you find them…”}

Al-Ash’hurul Hurumul Arba’ah (The Four Sacred Months). This was from the 10th of Dhul Hijjah until the 10th of Rabee’uth Thaani. The 10th of Dhul Hijjah, 9 A.H., until the 10th of Rabee’uth Thaani, 10 A.H., wherein Allaah said to the Mushrikeen: {“So travel freely…”} In other words, travel freely in the east and the west, and go wherever you wish, and prepare to fight. After the four months, the fighting will start.

{“So travel freely in the land for four months…”}

The word السياحة (used in this Aayah) means traveling freely and securely in the land.

{“Then, when the Sacred Months have passed, kill the Mushrikeen…”}

After the 10th of Rabee’uth Thaani.

{“…Kill the Mushrikeen wherever you find them…”}

The Mushrikoon fled from the Jazeeratul ‘Arab (Arabian Peninsula), and Hadhrat ‘Ikrimah رضي الله عنه wandered lost, not knowing where to go, because:

{“…Then, when the Sacred Months have passed, kill the Mushrikeen wherever you find them, and seize them (as prisoners), and lay siege to them and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush…”}

Assassinate them.

Where could he go? He went to Abyssinia. His wife went to Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم, asking for protection for him, so Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم gave him protection. Hadhrat ‘Ikrimah رضي الله عنه came and repented with a true repentance in front of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم, and (Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Welcome, O Muhaajir rider!”

An Insult to Islaam and the Stance of the Sharee`ah

As many are aware, the vile kaafir son of a whore known as Yasir al-Khabeeth لعنة الله عليه has brought out a film called “Lady of Heaven”, insulting Allaah Ta`aalaa, insulting Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم, insulting Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضي الله عنهم and insulting the the Deen of Islaam. 

One of the main reasons for the `Adhaab of Allaah Ta`aalaa descending all around the world in various forms as people are witnessing is because the filthy, despicable kuffaar are left in peace to insult Allaah Ta`aalaa, insult Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم and insult Islaam. 

Remember: the ruling of Sharee`ah regarding which there is ijmaa` is that if anyone insults Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم, he MUST be killed. It is not “optional”.  It is compulsory to kill him, and the Fuqahaa have ijmaa` on this as explained at length in as-Saarimul Maslool `alaa Shaatimir Rasool صلى الله عليه وسلم (The Unsheathed Sword Against the one who insults Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم).

Remember: we will have NO answer if we are questioned by Allaah Ta`aalaa on the Day of Qiyaamah as to why we did not kill these despicable kaafirs, these sons of whores who insult HIM and insult HIS Rasool صلى الله عليه وسلم.

If any Muslim in the UK (where the prostitute son of a whore named Yasir al-Khabeeth lives) or anywhere else in the world is able to get a hold of this filthy kaafir and kill him in a way that strikes terror into the hearts of all kaafirs around the world who dare to insult Allaah Ta`aalaa, insult Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم and insult Islaam, then he will – In Shaa Allaah – be immensely rewarded by Allaah Ta`aalaa to a degree that is is unfathomable to the minds of people. A Muslim who does this is from the greatest of Mujaahideen and if he is killed in the process, he is among the greatest of Shuhadaa, إن شاء الله.

The blessings of being affiliated with an Allah fearing Sheikh

One of the Mureed of Mufti Rasheed Ahmad Ludhiyanvi رحمة الله عليه who resided abroad wrote this letter to Mufti Saheb relating what happened to his twelve year old in school.

“One day a teacher of the Pakistani school, where my son studied, ordered him to wear a tie and come to school. The next day my son took a book to school in which it was written that wearing a tie depends on ones self, along with an old rag of a tie. When the teacher saw him without the tie he started scolding him angrily. My son took out the book from his bag and showed the lines to the teacher. The teacher said it is on my order that you will have to wear a tie. Where’s your tie?

My son took out the tie and placed it on the table. The teacher ordered him to wear the tie. My son replied that he didn’t have permission. The teacher now reeling with anger said “whose”? The answer was my Allah’s. Hearing this the teacher said sarcastically, “so you are very deen abiding.” Hearing this my son dropped the tie on the floor, clamped and rubbed it hard with his shoes. The entire class was watching this scene and laughing. The teacher did not have the courage to say a word. Alhamdolillah Allah Ta’ala gave courage to my son and he overcame the teachers orders. Alhamdolillah thumma Alhamdolillah. By this incidence I got a yaqeen that because of the duas of Hadhrat Mufti Saheb for me, Allah Ta’ala’s Karam is always there with me. I do dua that may Allah Ta’ala strengthens my bond with Hadhrat and give me the tawfeeq to do much shukr for this naimat.”

The result of pleasing the King

A person returning from Hajj related this incident to me.

“I was in Mina standing near the Royal Palace. Some children were playing near by. A small boy caught my eye. I went up to him, hugged him and fondled his hair. I then kissed his fore head. I was unaware that Malik Faisal was watching this scene from the balcony. As I was playing with the boy a person came up to me, asked my name, tent number and the name of our group leader. He wrote down all this information and informed me that the King had asked for it. I was fear struck that maybe the King did not like my playing with the child, now only Allah knows what will be my fate. 

When I reached my tent an official of the King came to the group leader and informed him that I was invited to have dinner in the palace  dinning hall and from this hour wherever I go I will present this card to the concerned officials in any hotel and stay as a Royal guest.  When I attended the Palace dinner I was looked after very well.

From that day I have made it a daily routine that when ever I recite Durood Shareef I do niyat that O Allah, when a worldly King saw my love for a small child he was so pleased that he showed such regard and respect for me. O Allah I am reciting Durood Shareef to show my love and regards for your beloved Rasool صلى الله عليه وسلم, thus grant me Your Closeness and Love by my reciting Durood Shareef.”

The sure remedy of all anxieties and calamities

1.These days every one always says that he /she is struck by calamities and anxieties. Only those who are truly attached to Deen do not say so. Where ever one looks, there is anxiety and bewilderment. To overcome and solve this matter people adopt various means. They read Wazaif and do Dua. They also ask other to do for them.

Remember that only those Duas are authentic and reliable which Allah Ta’ala himself has told us in the Quran Majeed. Allah Ta’ala has clearly stated that for such a such needs this dua is there. Thus only that dua is the only reliable one. Acceptance is only and only in the hands of Allah Ta’ala is the only accepter of Duas.

Today’s Muslim is so far away from Allah Ta’ala that he does not like to use and act on the ways Allah Ta’ala has given and shown us. He has no trust on Allah Ta’ala. For example there is the dua of Surah Furqan verse 74.

ربنا هب لنا من ازواجنا و ذريتنا قرة اعين واجعلنا للمتقين اماما

RABBANAA HAB-LANAA MIN AZWAAJINAA WA DHURRIYYAATINAA QURRATA A’YUN, WAJ-‘ALNAA LIL MUTTAQEENA IMAAMAA

“O our Rabb! Give us such wives and such offsprings who are the coolness of our eyes and make us the Imam of the pious.”

See for yourselves! This dua seems to be a very small one, but it solves so many of our needs and aims.

1. If a man is not getting married, this dua is for him.

2. If a girl is not getting married, this dua is for her.

3. If couples are childless this dua is for them.

4. If children are disobedient, this dua is for them

5. If a husband ill treats his wife, this dua is for this matter

6. If a wife is not considerate towards the husband, this dua is for this matter.

These are the needs for which those who are far from Deen, leave no means to fulfill these matters other than turning to this dua. 

This dua is the dua of the slaves of Allah Ta’ala who call him with these words. But todays Muslim is so insolent, so insolent, that he can not beg Allah with this dua.

2. For getting pious sons, Allah Ta’ala has taught us this dua in the Quran Majeed.

رب هب لى من الصالحين. Surah 100 verse 37

RABBI HAB-LEE MINAS SAALIHEEN

“O my Rabb, grant me a pious son.”

3. For doing away with all magic, the Quran Majeed has taught us the last two Surahs. But todays Muslim has no belief in the promises of Allah Ta’ala. Instead of reciting these last two Surahs, he runs after Aamils destroying his Aakirat and wealth.

4. One more dua which is the remedy of all anxieties and calamities is:

حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل. Surah 103 ayat 3

HASBUNALLAAHU WA NI’MAL WAKEEL

“Allah is Sufficient for us and He is the Best of Helpers.”

On the event of Ghazwa e Uhud, when 70 Sahaba رضى الله عنهم were martyred and all others were extremely tired, they got the news that the enemy is going to attack with fresh forces. They at once said:

حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل

HASBUNALLAAHU WA NI’MAL WAKEEL

As they said this Allah’s Rehmat at once came their way. 

Allah Ta’ala replied:

فانقلبوا بنعمة من الله وفضل لم يمسسهم سوء

Here ف is for immediate, meaning His help arrived immediately. The dua which is in the Quran Majeed, which is the dua of Allah Ta’ala’s beloved slaves, todays Muslim can not beg Allah Ta’ala by this dua.
