Some Matters May Be Unknown to the Seniors (2)

Some Matters May Be Unknown to the Seniors (2)

Al-Hafidh ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani رحمه الله said:

Certain facts may be unkown to the seniors while those lesser than them are aware of [these matters]. In this is a refutation of the blind-follower in that when a proof that opposes him is used as evidence against him, he responds: If this was correct, then so-and-so would have known it.

[Fathul-Bari, 16/112, Dar Tayyibah]

Translator: Yasar A. Rahman

Q: Is it permissible for a person who is not a student of knowledge; to have a hand in giving dawah…

Question: Is it permissible for a person who is not a student of knowledge; to have a hand in giving dawah, run the affairs of dawah with regards to organising lessons or seminars or preparing places and preparing for scholars and students to travel to these places or is it mandatory that he is a student of knowledge?

Answer: An individual who strives to do a action or to give wealth for the purpose of dawah, seeking the face of Allāh ﷻ then this individual falls under the hadeeth of the prophet ﷺ; verily actions are by their intentions and everyone will have that which they intended. The prophet ﷺ mentioned whoever prepares an individual to fight in the way of Allāh; it is as if he has fought in the way of Allāh and whoever takes care of the family of someone who has gone to fight in the way of Allāh, it is if he has fought in the way of Allāh.
There is no doubt, the greatest of actions, the supererogatory actions, the greatest of supererogatory actions is fighting in the way of Allāh ﷻ and if the reward for an individual who prepares someone to fight in the way of Allāh or takes care of his family is as he has fought then this is tremendous reward.
With that being the case if anyone does an action or they give in charity for the purpose of dawah; then this individual has taken part in the actions of the callers themselves.

Shaykh Saalih Muhammad al-Luhaydaan (May Allaah preserve him) (Kitaab-ut-Tawheed Class, Q&A Session 16-02-2013, Riyadh)

The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ asked, “Where is Allaah?”

The Messenger of Allaah asked, “Where is Allaah?”

The following is proof that the Deobandis, Brailwis who falsely claim that they are Hanafis not only oppose the Qurān and the authentic Sunnah but also oppose Imaam Abu Hanifah رحمه الله who is free of them and their batil aqeedah. Infact Imaam Abu Hanifah رحمه الله made Takfeer of the one who denies that Allaah is above His Arsh in a manner that befits His Majesty. This is the core belief of Ahlus Sunnah, this is the question that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ tested with in order to verify one being a Believer, this is the belief the Salaf-us-Salih united upon. It was the deviant sect of the early Jahmiyyah who were the first to deny the attribute of Allāh being the Most High (علو)

Imaam Al-Allaamah Ibn Qudamah Al-Maqdisee رحمه الله (541-620 H) wrote :

And He ﷺ said to the Slave girl “Where is Allaah”? She said Above the heavens. He ﷺ said, ” free her for indeed she is a Believer”. Narrated by Maalik bin Anas, Muslim and others from the Imaams. (Ahmad, Muslim, Abu Dawud, Maalik)

Al-Allaamah Salah Al-Fawzaan حفظه الله explains:

This hadith is in the Saheeh, and it is that Muawiyyah bin Al-Hakmi As-Sulamee (may Allāh be pleased with him) used to own a slave girl and he became angry towards her and slapped her on her face. Thereafter he (may Allaah be pleased with him) regretted it and he came to the Prophet ﷺ and asked him regarding freeing her. Because he intended to free her as a means of expiation of what had occurred due to him. So the Prophetﷺ said to her “Where is Allaah”? She said “Above the heavens” He ﷺ said ‘”Who am I”? She said “You are the Messenger of Allaah” He ﷺ said, “Free her as indeed she is a Believer”. The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ testified for her that [she possess] Emaan when she said Indeed Allaah is above the Heavens and indeed Mohammed is the Messenger of Allāh, and he approved her speech. He attributed to her emaan when she attributed that indeed her Lord is above the heavens.This is similar to what came in the Ayah:

أَأَمِنتُم مَّن فِي السَّمَاءِ

Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allāh)

In the hadeeth, there is proof of the permissibilty to ask the question where is Allāh, that is to say, Where is Allāh? And this is ‘heavy as it gets’ for the Al-muatilah (those who reject the correct meaning of the sifaat of Allaah, such as the asharis, mutazilah, Jahmiyya, philosophers and the matureedis) as with them you never say ‘Where is Allāh’. That is because with them Allāh is not in a place, and the one who is not in a place then you don’t say: Where is He?

So this hadeeth is a stab [with a sharp instrument] in their eyes, and it is the most severe hadith upon them, and from them, they are those who say “Where” means “Who” so, therefore, meaning of ‘Where is Allāh’ is ‘Who is Allāh’. SubhaanAllaah ! Is it mentioned in the language of the Arabs or in the language of the non-Arabs that “where” means “who”? However, these liars do not refrain from lying.

So the Hadith is crystal clear just like the Ayah, so it proves that the one who negates[ the fact] that indeed Allāh is above the heavens is not a Believer. And that the one who negates the attribute of Allāh being the Most High [above his Arsh] then is not a believer. We ask Allāh for the well-being. End of Quote.شرح لعمة الإعتقاد للشيخ صالح الفوزان

Imaam Abu Hanifah رضي الله عنه (Hijri150) has indeed confirmed the attribute of “علو” (Allāh being the Most High) of Allaah, the Most High with the intellect, the fitrah ( natural disposition of man to know his Creator), narrations and used the hadith of the slave girl as proof, and he made takfeer (declared one to be a Kafir) of the one who denied the attribute of “علو” for Allāh the Most High, rather made takfeer of the one who had any doubt regarding it.

(  عداء الماتريدية للعقيدة السلفية ) of Al-Allaamah Shams] [رحمه الله

If you ask the Ahlul Bidaah from the Sufis whether they are Brailwi or Deobandis they will not be able to correctly answer this question, they are most likely to say Allaah is everywhere ( and everything is Allaah this is the kufr aqeedah of wahdat ul wujood) or on their second attempt they will say Allāh is in my heart( aqeedah of hulooliyya which is Kufr). Allāh is totally distinct from His creation and has complete knowledge of them.

Guilty by Association

Mohammad bin Al-Hasan bin Haroon Al-Musaly رحمه الله said, “I asked Abu Abdullah Ahmad Ibn Hanbal regarding the saying of Al-Karabesi: “my recitation of the Quran is created”, so Abu Abdullah said to me, “I warn you, I warn you from this Al-Karabesi, do not speak to him and do not speak to the one who speaks to him. [He repeated this] four or five times”. Source: طبقات الحنابلة 688


Translators Note: This is a valid proof that the concept of ‘guilt by association’ is valid and has a strong basis from the Salaf. When you block the innovator, refute him, boycott him and humiliate him then his bidaāh will die out. Similarly any Muslim who is aware of the beliefs of Farrakhanism, the Qadiyanis, the Rafidah and then cooperates, aids, promotes their leaders should be boycotted.
