EVERY WORD OF THE QURAN WAS TRANSMITTED THROUGH HADITH

How the Qur’an was Transmitted. Every verse was  connected to Hadith. 
Answering the Fitna of Rejection of Hadith. 

The following is a segment of the Juma Khutba given by Dr. Kaukab Siddique in Baltimore on October 25:

1. The Book called the Qur’an was with Allah and was revealed to Muhammad, pbuh, over a period of 23 years.

2. Each time it was revealed, it was a WAHI or revelation on his heart and soul, NEVER IN WRITING.

3. He would be helped by the Angel to memorize it. Then he would recite it to one of few Companions who could write and the sahabi would write. The Prophet, pbuh, himself could NEITHER READ nor WRITE.

4. When the Prophet, pbuh, would tell a Companion what had been revealed and ask him to write, that was Hadithe Muhammad, pbuh. Thus EVERY VERSE in the Qur’an was transmitted by hadith.

5. In Madina, the Prophet, pbuh, instituted writing as a skill among the converts to Islam. Thus as longer and longer suras were revealed, there were more and more katibs [scribes] to write them down.

6. The Book was with Allah and was gradually revealed VERBALLY, not in writing, to the Prophet, pbuh. This should be clear to all.

6. Thus when the world IQRA is translated as read or recite, it meant that Allah was going to educate the Prophet, pbuh, to be able to recite the Book coming down [nazil] from heaven.

7. When the Qur’an says, “Book”, it is not implying that the whole book had been revealed right away. The whole Book was with Allah.

8. As time went on, the Prophet, pbuh, through Allah’s Guidance told the sahaba [his Companions] which Sura to place where. Thus the first revelation, Alaq or Iqra became sura 96.

9. Again all this arrangement of the Qur’an was through Hadith, the Prophet’s directions to the sahaba,

10. Sometimes, a few words were placed by the Prophet, pbuh, within an entire sura which had already been revealed. Again, this is Hadith in action. The Qur’an thus is UNTHINKABLE without hadith. There is no Islam without Muhammad, pbuh.

The Qur’an uses the term RECITE in various forms, such as YATLU, TATLU, ATLU, YATALA. The role of the Prophet’s, pbuh, hadith, is best defined thus in Sura 2 verse 151:

“Allah has conferred a great favor on the believers, sending among them a messenger from among themselves, who RECITES [YATLU] unto them the Signs of Allah, and purifies them and INSTRUCTS them in the Book and Wisdom.”

The whole process was verbal, not in writing:

“Do not move your tongue concerning the Qur’an to make haste therewith. It is for us to collect it [in your heart], so you may recite it [quranu’hu], and when We have recited it, follow its recital [quranuhu] Nay, more, it is for US to expound it [through your tongue.” [75:16-19]

So, dear Muslims, the Prophet, pbuh, was not carrying a written Book around with him. It was all verbal and became WRITING when the Sahaba, r.a., wrote it down and memorized it.

So, bless the Sahaba, r.a., after you bless the prophet, pbuh, among them the great compiler of the entire revelation, Usman r.a., ibn Affan.

Thus those who say “Qur’an only” or that hadith was produced in the 3rd century are playing into the hands of the Zionists and the Rand Corporation.

EVERY WORD of the Qur’an was transmitted through hadith.

I conclude with this beautiful Hadith:

Fatima Zahra, r.a., narrates: “The Prophet informed me secretly, ‘Jibril used to recite the Qur’an to me and I to him once a year, but this year he has recited the entire Qur’an with me twice. I do not think but that my death is approaching.’ ” [Sahih Bukhari, Fadail al-Qur’an.]

Why TALAQ is easy but KHULA is almost impossible in the Muslim society?

Why TALAQ is easy but KHULA is almost impossible in the Muslim society?

SHARIAH  on the disintegrating family life is stagnant in most muslim societies where women are ignorant and few men in the family law system have manipulated the word of Allah and His Rasool to suit their personal, present needs in this dunya without fear or repercussions of the Hereafter.

We bring you a discussion by scholars on the difficulties facing muslim women in muslim societies in finding justice against cruelty in the home and legal recourse to end it. IT IS LONG…………just like the misery of a women stuck in a cruel marriage can be long and unending.

YOUR COMMENTS ARE APPRECIATED!

A report from Saudi Arabia.
May 15:
Photo: A seminar in Jeddah organized by the Socio-Reforms Society addressed by Advocate Osman Shaheed and Aleem Khan Falaki.
A successful seminar was held on “Why Talaq is easy, but Khula is almost impossible in Muslim Society?” one of the most burning issues at present in the Muslim society. It was attended by a large number of men and women at Shadab Hall of Jeddah on 10th May, 2013 after the Friday Prayers. The speakers reviewed the status of the real Islamic guidance, present norms and the Indian constitution on divorce rules. Qari Mohammed Abbas Khan recited Quran at the start of the seminar.
ISLAM IS THE FORERUNNER OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND GENDER JUSTICE
Aleem Khan Falaki, who is leading the socio reforms movement, emphasized that no other religion has descended or formulated rules about human rights, women’s rights and equitable social justice as clearly and justly as Islam.
But, unfortunately, every community interpreted these rules according to its own convenience. In particular, the rules related to women have been drafted and being interpreted with full patriarchal manifestation.We bow down our heads with shame when we see Muslim women crowding police stations, Qazi’s offices, courts and advocates begging justice.

It is perceived that the man is at liberty to utter the words of TALAQ and darken the future of the woman and children and that TALAQ is applicable instantly. However, if the woman wants to leave her husband, she has to face humiliation for months and years.

In the husband-wife disputes, both are equally responsible, but it is the woman who is punished mostly. If the man has the right to dislike some acts of the woman, the woman too, being an equal human being, has the right to get reluctant due to some unpleasant acts of the man. This is not justice that the woman must bear with every unpleasant act of the man and the man gets the right to treat her like a servant and punish her for every act that is unpleasant to him and threaten to terminate her from the job.
DALAIL (PROOFS BY HADITH) OF GENDER JUSTICE IN ISLAM (and many more)
There are many traditions as well as incidents in the life history of the Prophet Mohammed , (may peace be upon him) that shed the light on the gender justice and clearly reflect that there was equality in the cases of Talaq and Khula.

Hadith#1. A woman came to the Prophet (Pbuh) and complained that her husband, an Ansari, slapped on her cheek so intensely that her cheek got red. The Prophet (Pbuh) did the justice, called her husband and asked his wife to slap him with the same intensity as he did to her.

 Hadith #2. In another incident, a lady companion asked the Prophet (Pbuh) for Khula from her husband. The Prophet (Pbuh) asked the reason. She kept silent. He asked if her husband’s character was questionable to which she answered that there was nothing wrong with his character as he was pious and God fearing. Still she pressed for the Khula and the Prophet (Pbuh) did not insist her to reveal the reason and awarded Khula to her. 

Hadith narrative: Caliph Umar, r.a. We find a saying of Hadhrat Omer, r.a.,  that: “If the man divorces he must present the reason to the QAZI, but if a woman wants a Khula and she is not willing to present the reason, the QAZI must not insist and should award her the Khula. 

THE DOUBLE STANDARDS ABHORRED BY ISLAM
There are other incidents too in the history which reveal that the woman got the justice equal to men. But, in the contemporary Muslim Personal laws constituted by different communities, the man has been provided every convenience to divorce the woman.

As a result, the status of the woman has been totally marginalized. She becomes like a slave or an employee whose existence depends upon the consent of the employer. He can divorce her even if he is drunk, in anger, jokingly or sick. The divorce is applicable immediately even if he gives TALAQE GHALEEZA, TALAQE BID’AT.
Even his representative can divorce her on his behalf. She is separated instantly. He and only he has the right to have mercy on her and come back but she is not given such a right. The man is free and can go to have second or third marriage if he wants and there are no restrictions upon him from the law. She is compelled to wander around to prove he was right or wrong.
The woman does have the right to terminate the Nikah on certain conditions, but all the conditions are conditional to the husband’s consent on separation. Unless he signs to give his consent, the Khula is not considered valid.
2437073588_ebc83c296e_o
In the Indian Muslim Personal Law, there are 42 clauses in favor of Talaq and only 4 in favor of Khula.
WHERE DOES THE OBSTRUCTION TO KHULA COME FROM?
Ironically, all the four clauses carry the condition of husband’s consent on the Khula. It is nothing different from the Hindu beliefs that “Jisghar men dolijaaewahan se dolauthhe”, or “shaadiatootbandhanhai” , or “Shaadizindgi men ekbaarhotihai”.
Although, the Hindu society is giving up this practice, but the Muslim society is still holding these beliefs firmly on the pretext of Shariya law. They practice the same Hindu beliefs and go on taking revenge from the woman.
It does not mean that the woman is totally innocent. In most of the disputes, it is the woman and her family who bring the couple close to a breakup. But, again, the question is that if the man does not find interest in her, he has the right to leave her. Why does not she have the same right? Why is she roped around the neck? Why is she compelled to enforce Anti-dowry case, Police complaints, goons etc to terminate marriage?
DISTRACTORS TO THE SUBJECT
Aleem Falki added that he was talking about those women who are victims of men’s revenge and suffering. There are hundreds of cases in which women harass the innocent husbands. It is not always that woman is only innocent. But, that is a different topic and be debated in another such forum. Since some pseudo-intellectuals raise the unrelated topics and divert the topic, rather kill the topic and therefore, he requested to adhere to the topic.He then raised the situation where thousands of men adopt the revengeful policy of hanging women and elaborated on it.
The present Indian Muslim personal Law was drafted in 1937. It was called Mohammaden Law or Indian Shariyat Act. Article 224 of the Indian constitution guarantee application of these laws as far as muslim personal affairs are concerned.
PUTTING FIQH IN PERSPECTIVE

It is to be borne in the mind that the Fiqh is not equal to holy Quran. The scholars of different time extract and expand the laws of Shariya according to the situation present during a particular time. It is inevitable that these laws can be amended, changed or scrapped, if the new circumstances emerge. It is the need of the hour to keep the laws competent to the prevailing circumstances.

THE PROBLEMS WITH OLD FIQH:

Maulana Minnatullah Rahmani, the founding member of Muslim Personal Board as well as the writer of several books on this issue wrote in his book “Muslim Peronal Law” that the Masa’el are of two types:
One, those issues which were never experienced by the predecessor scholars and therefore the fiqh is silent on those issues.
Second, those issues which have to be deliberated afresh under the changing situations. The time when the present laws were drafted, has changed completely. The time when these laws were drafted, the man was a real “Qawwam” (Protector or care taker of the woman) according to the Quran. He was not the receiver of the dowry or Tilak or dinners from the woman. The woman was not aware of the modern education, job or outside world. The anti-Islamic literature was not taught to her in the name of woman’s rights, feminism, equality and gender justice.
RATIONALIZATION THE DISOBEDIENCE OF ALLAH
Today, the man has inverted or rather subverted the teachings of Quran and Shariya completely. Now, he does not pay ‘Mahr’, but instead, collects dowry from the woman not only in the form of net cash, but also demands property, automobile etc. He grabs the salary, inheritance and belongings of the wife. He is engaged in illegitimate relations too.
DIVORCE RATE AND TO LACK OF AVAILABILITY OF ISLAMIC COUNSELING
The divorce ratio is increasing alarmingly. In Kuwait it is 37%, Qatar 33% and Saudi Arabia 21%. In India and Pakistan, although it is 4-5% but the ratio of the strained relation or disturbed marriages is over 60%. In other words, every third house is affected by the hatred, court or police cases. The scholars (ulema) are not able to carry counseling because the subject of the counseling, although emphasized much in the traditions, yet, it has been totally neglected in the syllabus of the Madarsa.
]
SOLUTION:
Aleem Khan Falaki presented the evidences from the writings of Maulana Anwar Shah Kashmiri, Allama Iqbal and Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi directing towards establishing Shariya courts. If impossible, they advised for establishing local committees of minimum 5 respectable local persons to go and work as arbiter. They warned that if the woman will not get justice, she will revolt and will go to the extent of marrying even with non-Muslims.
LARGE HOLES IN THE “NIKAH NAMA” (MARRIAGE AGREEMENT)
Aleem Khan Falaki pointed out that the “Nikahnama” (the marriage agreement) itself is faulty. The word “AQD” implies an agreement by the two parties on whatever is taken or given. Since there was never a dowry, except Mahr in those days, so there was nothing to write from the woman’s side what she is giving. Therefore, the Nikahnama had the mentioning of only the Mehr’s amount.
But, the time has changed now. The woman is compelled in the name of the system to give a lot. Since the Muslim Personal Law permits the woman to take back all those gifts given at the time of marriage, there should be a clear mentioning of all those gifts she is taking with her to the house of her husband.
But,the man today does not agree to sign the receipt of these items as he is too clever and knows that there are hundreds of parents who can pay huge dowry without taking a receipt. So the woman is totally helpless.
The Muslim Personal Law Board must take action and draft a new Nikahnama. It should also define clearly what is considered as gift.
The present day’s dowry system is totally Haraam as it is a bribe, begging, blackmailing and violation of Quranic instructions as well as the way of the Prophet (Pbuh).
] WORDS FROM THE LEGAL COUNSEL OF INDIA ON MUSLIM MATTERS
Maslehuddin Ahmed presented an introduction of the honorable guest, Advocate Osman Shaheed. Maslehuddin Ahmed is well known in Jeddah for his religious as well as community services. Maslehuddin stated that the Adv. Shaheed is not only a successful and well known advocate in Hyderabad but also a kind hearted person who has served hundreds of helpless people for their education, marriages of poor girls etc. He had been the Prosecutor General of Andhra Pradesh High Court for 6 years.
]
Mr.Osman Shaheedexpressed deep concern over the present lawlessness among Muslims in the matters of Khula and Talaq. He stated that even the Muslim lawyers in the courts deliberately misquote holy Quran to win fake cases of Talaq for their clients. He emphasized that the holy Quran is the “Mother of all the charters” and all the present charters of national and international humanitarian institutions are extracted from Quran. He asserted that the real worship of Allah is in having justice in the relations. He quoted several examples from the Prophet’s(Pbuh) life as to how he treated his wives.
] THE SOLUTION TO THE WOES OF INDIAN MUSLIM WOMEN
Regarding the Khula/Talaq situation, he offered a solution, which was highly appreciated by the audience, that there is a possibility of solving these issues without involving courts and police. The Indian constitution itself grants the right to solve disputes in accordance with Shariya. He said there was no need to establish the separate Muslim Shariya courts as whenever such attempts were made in the past, the communal Hindu parties like RSS and BJP started the propaganda that the Muslims were trying to create another Pakistan.
] APPOINTMENT OF ARBITRATORS (AS MENTIONED IN SURAH NISA)
He said that according to the Indian constitution, the two parties i.e husband and wife, could appoint a person of their choice who is called an “Arbitrator”. No special qualification is required to be an arbitrator. Anyone, who is approved by both parties can become an arbitrator. Both the parties must submit an “Affidavit” in the court that they will honor the decision of the arbitrator even if he goes against their wish. Whatever the Arbitrator will decide, that decision will be endorsed by the court as “Order of Law”. The parties can get an “Execution order” too from the court to implement the decision of the Arbitrator. Since Mr. Osman Shaheed himself is running an Arbitration office which is serving people free of cost, he gave his telephone number to the audience to take his free legal services in this regard.
]
ESTABLISHMENT OF AN ARBITRATION OFFICE (CALLED OMBUDSMEN IN THE US)
Aleem Khan Falaki suggested that an Arbitration office be established with a list of arbitrators consisting of scholars and Mufties belonging to various schools of thought. The conflicting parties can choose the scholars according to their Maslak and beliefs. Let the people get their disputes solved in our own offices instead of non-Shariya courts.

QURAN, HADITH: CAN YOU CHOOSE ONE WITHOUT THE OTHER?

WHAT DOES THE QUR’AN MEAN by SAYING that it EXPLAINS ALL THINGS?
A Refutation of Westernized Pakistanis who Attack Hadith 

In 1861 a Christian missionary writer named William Muir wrote a book titled THE LIFE of MAHOMET in which he attacked Hadith. A famous Muslim scholar of the time, Sir Sayyid Ahmed Khan answered Muir in detail. Unfortunately Sir Sayyid was himself a great admirer of British power and was deeply overawed by the majesty of the British Empire. He gradually succumbed to Muir’s attack and started casting doubts on some segments of Hadith. Gradually he narrowed down the efficacy of Hadith to a very few aspects of life.

Through Sir Sayyid influence on westernized Indian Muslims, the attack on Hadith gradually entered the mentally defeated segment of what we today call the Pakistani elites or the Pakistani ruling class.

In 1896 a Jewish scholar named Goldziher launched a massive attack on Hadith in his publication Muhammedanische Studien. It was not translated into English until 1967 but in 1950, its major thesis was taken up and built on by another Jewish scholar Joseph Schacht in his book ORIGINS OF MUHAMMADAN JURISPRUDENCE.

Under the influence of Sir Sayyid, a number of writers under severe inferiority complex to the west emerged. The most important of these was Ghulam Ahmed Pervez who carried out systematic and scurrilous attacks on Hadith. His magazine Tolu-e-Islam, started in 1938, became a rallying point for anti-Hadith writings with a clear pro-government bias.

In the 1960s came Dr. Fazlur Rahman who carried out a more sophisticated attack on Hadith.
All these anti-Hadith efforts were tackled by scholars of various schools of Islamic thought in Pakistan. Abul Ala Maudoodi was the most famous of these but there were others whose rebuttal of the anti-Hadith people was more far reaching than his. [Maudoodi was too polite towards the attackers.]

The anti-Hadith people became irrelevant in Pakistan but they have found some support among Pakistanis in America. One of them has set up shop in Florida and attracted admirers by denouncing Imam Bukhari’s Sahih. A bunch of these characters are busy on the Internet abusing the Hadith under the slogan of “QUR’AN ONLY.” Every now and then I receive their emails.

I am willing to listen to any critique of the Hadith, and even of the Qur’an, if it is written in scholarly language and based on honest investigation. It should not take the shape of abuse, out of context listing of quotations and downright fabrication. The arrogance and deliberate efforts of these people to remove Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) leadership from Islam forced me to give them some of my valuable time.

IF THE QUR’AN CONTAINS EVERYTHING and HADITH IS NOT NEEDED ….

I pointed out that the QUR’AN DOES NOT MENTION RAPE. I asked the anti-Hadith people to give me chapter and verse from the Qur’an. What is rape, what is its punishment and how is this punishment to be implemented? Give chapter and verse. I sent my question to all the Pervaiz followers and other anti-Hadith people. They are unable to give chapter and verse.

So the Qur’an does not mention the punishment for rape. It’s given in Hadith. [My book LIBERATION of WOMEN THRU ISLAM is the only book in English which gives the Hadith on rape.] Qur’an and Hadith have always been together.
So let’s look at the verses of the Qur’an which are misused by the Pervaizi cult and other anti-Hadith people.

SURA 16 VERSE 89

This is one of the verses which the “Qur’an Only” cult [Pervaizis] keep repeating. They quote it as follows:
“We have sent down to thee the Book explaining all things.” [16:89]

Actually the whole verse is as follows:“On the Day we shall raise from all Peoples a witness against them, from amongst themselves: And we shall bring thee [O Muhammad] as a witness against these: And WE have sent down to thee the Book explaining all things, a Guide, a Mercy, and Glad Tidings to Muslims.”

[Note the extra-Qur’anic role of the Prophet, pbuh, as witness against his people. If Muslims are Muhammad’s, pbuh, people, then he, as leader through his teachings, is a witness against them till the Day of Judgement.]

NOW FOCUS ON THE WORDS “explaining all things” [“tibyaanal-li-kulli shay’in” in Arabic.] Does this mean that the Qur’an covers every possible issue and leaves nothing out, with emphasis on ALL? Other verses of the Qur’an indicate that this is an idiom which indicates that fundamental or generic issues of a great variety are covered. Seminal issues are covered. For instance, harshness towards women is forbidden, as in Sura Nisa. But it does not mean that EVERYTHING is in the Qur’an. Let’s understand this terminology from the Qur’an itself. For instance, about the Tablets or Commandments given to Moses, the Qur’an uses just about the same words:

“And we ordained for him in the Tablets in ALL MATTERS, admonition and EXPLANATION of ALL THINGS, (and said): “Take and hold these with firmness, and enjoin thy people to hold fast by the best in the precepts: Soon shall I show you the homes of the wicked.’ ” [7:145]
[The Arabic for the words I have put in capitals is “min kulli shay’in’ and “tafsillal-li-kulli shay.”]

Evidently ALL things could not possibly be written on explained on the Tablets. It is simply idiomatic expression for essentials and fundamentals.

Now focus on the word ALL [kull in Arabic]. Does it mean LITERALLY ALL and EVERYTHING in Arabic? Let’s see what the Qur’an says:

“And thy Lord taught the Bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in habitations: Then to eat of ALL [“kull’] of the fruits (of the earth) and follow the ways of thy Lord made smooth… [to the end of the verse]” [16:68-69]

Obviously the ALL here is idiomatic and not to be taken literally. No Bee can possibly eat of ALL the fruits, literally.

“And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and on EVERY {“kull} camel lean, through deep and distant highways.” [22:27]


Again the EVERY camel has to be idiomatic. It cannot be taken literally to mean that every possible camel will be ridden by the pilgrims!

In the story of the Queen of Sheba (known as Bilqis), the Hoopoe says:

“I found a woman ruling over them and provided with EVERY THING {“kull sha’yi”}, and she has a magnificent throne.” [27:23]
Evidently Bilqis did not LITERALLY have every thing. It is an idiom to indicate that she has all the fundamental riches of the world.

To conclude this section, the Qur’an includes ALL the fundamental and seminal issues which humanity needs but there are many important things not in it which were taught by the Prophet (pbuh.) [Also, once Qur’an and Hadith are understood they can be used as basis for Islamic understanding, BUT BOTH do not cover many things for which ijtihad, qiyas, and many other forms of reasoning are needed.]

The Hadith of the Prophet (pbuh) explain how Muhammad (pbuh) understood and implemented the verses of the Qur’an. Everything he taught is as much a part of Islam as is anything in the Qur’an.Rape was defined and punished by the Prophet (pbuh) and he also indicated that the woman’s word be accepted and the man be punished after proper investigation. It’s in the Hadith, NOT in the Qur’an.

PRAY FOR GAZA & SYRIA & OPPOSE THE TYRANTS

THE QURAN:

“The way (of blame) is only against those who oppress men and wrongly rebel in the earth without justification; for such there will be a painful torment.” (42:42)

HADITH:

Hisham said: “I bear testimony to the fact that I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saying, `Allah will torment those who torment people in the world.”’

Allah, the Exalted, says:

“And let those who oppose the Messenger’s commandment (i.e., his Sunnah legal ways, orders, acts of worship, statements)beware, lest some Fitnah (disbelief, trials, afflictions, earthquakes, killing, overpowered by a tyrant) should befall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them.” (24:63)

HAVE YOU TURNED SIXTY YET?

***

Allah Almighty says:

 “Did We not let you live long enough for anyone who was going to pay heed to pay heed? And did not the warner come to you?” (35:37)

112. Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:

“Allah has excused Himself in the case of a man whose term He extends until he reaches sixty years of age.” [Al-Bukhari]

The scholars say that it means, “He does not need an excuse if He lets him live for this period.” It is said that this is when a man reaches the utmost point of being excused.

Rebuttal of the Attacks on Prophet Muhammad, pbuh.

After 400 years of slavery, Africa is rising up with the banners of Islam.

Excerpt from the Juma’ khutba at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore.

 BACKGROUND:

The organized concerted effort by the secular intelligentsia, artists, moviemakers and writers who have made it their lifetime goal to chip at Islam from all aspects in a systematic manner.

The most recent one being a lighted match on an oil field by insulting the Prophet pbuh, and the edicts of the Quran regarding adoption and other injunctions for humankind in order to lead a just and righteous life.

The major ideological groups that have come together to fling mud on the pure persona of Prophet Muhammad pbuh and bring the Muslims of the world and the western Governments to butt heads are primarily Zionists (who though are called Jews are secular & imperialistic in their ideology): http://www.nkusa.org/aboutus/zionism/index.cfm) Now perhaps the secularized (under the Zionist influence) Coptic (Egyptian) Christians have joined them while seeking protection in the United States for their blatant inflammatory incitation against the heart of Islam.

Here are the main points of the Khutbah:

  1. The enemies of Islam have made a serious mistake of attacking the best of men, and the beloved of Allah Subhanawataala: Muhammad, pbuh, who is dearer to Muslims than their own lives.

Allah Subhanawataala says in the Quran:

The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers……….The Quran Surah Al Ahzaab 33:6 (translation by Yusuf Ali)

2.  The Zionist Jews began the systematic onslaught by attacking Hadith because they know US Muslims are deficient in the study of Hadith. However they did not realize that Muslim scholars have studied EACH hadith and categorized its strength and weakness.  There is nothing that these enemies of Islam can tell us about Hadith.

3. They then started attacking the beloved wife of the Prophet, pbuh, Aisha, r.a., not realizing that Aisha, r.a., is the greatest Muslim woman, scholar, teacher, orator, poet, leader; pious, virtuous and chaste as witnessed by Allah Almighty himself.

4. They then started attacking Abu Huraira RA to weaken the several thousand hadiths that Muslims rely on for ebadah and daily life.

5. Some “Muslim” agents of the government are trying to fool the Muslim public and say that Muhammad, pbuh, forgave his enemies so we should too! I would say to these agents: If you are personally attacked, forgive the attacker. That is not the issue.

6. By attacking Muhammad, pbuh, the Zionists and Islam haters are attacking the ENTIRE ISLAMIC WAY of LIFE. The way we live, all our fasting and festivals, our marriages, our food, our child upbringing, our habits of cleanliness, EVERYTHING is connected to the example of the Prophet, pbuh.

7. Thus an attack on the Prophet, pbuh, is cultural GENOCIDE, an attempt to destroy Islam and the identity of Muslims and to make them ashamed to call themselves as such.  It’s like telling a child: Your mother is a whore and you are not legitimate!

8.  This is coming from the Zionists, the pariahs of the world. Look at their morality:

i)  They support fornication, adultery and the battering of women. More than 4,000,000 women are battered in the USA the moral and political guidelines of which are rapidly transferring to the control of Zionists.

ii) The movies the Zionists produce are chock full of images of violence against women.

iii)Now they have come out openly in support of homosexuality. Man on man, woman on woman.  Can scum cover the purity of the Prophet (pbuh)? They want to attack the Prophet, pbuh, and teach us morality?

iv)  Allah categorizes us as Muslim, Mumin, Muhsin, Mujahid, and Shaheed. These Zionists categorize Muslims as fundamentalists [those who pray and fast], extremists [those who protest peacefully against occupation of Muslim lands] and terrorists [those who resist occupation of their homeland with weapons].

12. Let us examine how “brave” are these people are who want to criticize our beloved, brave, just and gentle Prophet PBUH under the guise of the first amendment:

13. They sit in Tampa, Florida and fire missiles into Afghan & African villages. Their drones slaughter women children and old men under the guise of  “suspected militants.” Is this courage and justice?

14.They bomb villagers in impoverished Muslim countries who have no anti-aircraft guns and no food and then boast of their heroism and refer to their victims as “terrorists.”

15.They occupy Muslim lands and claim that Muslims are so violent that they don’t want their lands occupied!

16.Most of them are the progeny of those who carried on slavery for 400 years, raped every black woman and exterminated entire tribes of Native Americans. With this historical background they want to set the moral standards for Muslims and have the gumption to criticize the Prophet, pbuh?

17. For years under the guise of business corporations they have misled the innocent unsuspecting people of Africa and looted their wealth and polluted their soil and water.

Now Africa is rising up with the banners of Islam. Libya, Egypt, Somalia, Sudan, Nigeria… our African brothers and sisters are becoming game changers……..

End Khutbah

Allah Subhanawataala in the Quran describes the fate of those who harm or insult the Prophet pbuh:

سورة المسد

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

تَبَّتْ يَدَا أَبِي لَهَبٍ وَتَبَّ ﴿١﴾ مَا أَغْنَىٰ عَنْهُ مَالُهُ وَمَا كَسَبَ ﴿٢﴾ سَيَصْلَىٰ نَارًا ذَاتَ لَهَبٍ ﴿٣﴾ وَامْرَأَتُهُ حَمَّالَةَ الْحَطَبِ ﴿٤﴾ فِي جِيدِهَا حَبْلٌ مِّن مَّسَدٍ ﴿٥
