    Command the good and prohibit the evil

    Is speaking against deviant pseudo-Islaamic groups a waste of time and energy and in fact total contradiction to Qur'ân and Sunnah??


    In Soorah Aal'imraan 3:110 Allah says "you are the best nation raised up among mankind (because) you command the good and prohibit the evil" Commanding the good is not sufficient in itself to earn us the title "best of the nations" it must be complemented by the prohibitions of evil {an Nahi ‘An Al-Munkar }: Not to mention the classical Ahaadeeth in which the prophet (saws) said "who ever sees evil should stop it with his hands, but if he is unable he should speak against it ......"{Narrated by Abu sa'eed al-khudree} and If we review the lives of the Sahâbah and the early scholars, we find them not only teaching Islaam, But also condemning whatever innovations {Bid'ah} or Deviations occurred around them, In every era there arose ideas which challenged the pure concept of Islaam, and were it not for scholars who arose to oppose them, the deviant ideas would have over whelmed the masses, "When some people mentioned to
    IMAAM AHMED IBN HANBAL {rahim'ullah} that they felt uneasy about critising people he replied," If I were to remain silent, how would the ignorant masses know truth from falsehood?" Those who introduce heretical writings and deviant religious rites contrary to Qur'ân and Sunnah have to be exposed and the Muslim nation warned against them according to the unanimous agreement of Muslim scholars Infact, Yahyaa ibn Maeen companion of IMAAM AHMED IBN HANBAL {rahim'ullah} was asked if one who fasted, prayed and secluded himself in the masjid was dearer to him than one who spoke out against people involved in Deviations, he replied, "When he fasts, Prays and secludes himself, he does so for himself alone, but if he speaks out against the Deviations, he does so for Muslims in general which is more Noble, Hence it is clear that openly opposing innovation {Bid'ah} and Deviations is of general benefit to Muslims in the practice of their religion and comes under the heading of "Jihaad fee sabeelil-laah" {struggle in Allah's path} Purification of Allah's religion and the repulsion of attacks against it is a general obligation {Fard kifaayah} on Muslims by unanimous agreement. For if Allah did not raise up some people to oppose the corruption preached by heretics, the religion would surely become distorted and deviant, The corruption of the Divinely revealed religion is far more terrible than the corruption resulting from the military conquest of the Non-Muslims, For when Non-Muslims over powers Muslims they are not able to corrupt the hearts of Muslims, or their religion except after some time , whereas, heretics corrupt the hearts from the very outset"


    Muhammad (saws) when he said : "The one who loves for the sake of Allah and hates for the sake of Allah, he will taste the sweetness of Eemaan (faith)". Thus it is a part of Faith, that we evaluate the evidences of those who preach Islam, and thus correct our Islam so that we may be guided. In this regard,
    Ibn Sireen {rahim'ullah} said as quoted in the introduction to Sahih Muslim said: "This (hadeeth) is the religion! So be careful as to whom you take this religion".
    Ibn Taahir al-Maqdisi al-Haafidh {rahim'ullah} said, "I heard the Imaam, Abu Ismaa'eel 'Abdullaah bin Muhammad al-Ansaari {rahim'ullah} saying, whilst in Haraah: 'The sword was put to my neck five times [and each time] it was not said to me, 'Leave your madhhab' but it was said to me, 'Remain silent about those who are in opposition to you'. So I would say, 'I will not remain silent'." [Aadaab us-Sharee'ah (1/207) of Ibn Muflih al-Maqdisi al-Hanbali].
    Al-Humaidee, the Shaikh of al-Bukhaaree {rahim'ullah} said, "By Allaah, that I war against those who reject the Ahaadeeth of the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) is more beloved to me than that I should war against the same number of Non-Muslims." [Al-Harawi in Dhamm ul-Kalaam].
    Ibn al-Qayyim {rahim'ullah} said, "The Jihaad with decisive proofs [from the Book and the Sunnah] and the tongue takes precedence over the Jihaad with the sword and the teeth." [Al-Jawaab us-Saheeh of Ibn Taymiyyah (1/237)].
    Nasr bin Zakariyaa {rahim'ullah} said, I heard Muhammad bin Yahyaa adh-Dhuhlee saying, I heard Yahyaa bin Yahyaa saying, "Defence of the Sunnah is more superior than Jihaad in the path of Allaah." So I said, "A man spends his wealth, tires his body and strives (in Jihaad), so is this one (still) better than him? He said, "Yes, by many times!" [Dhammu ul-Kalaam of al-Harawi].
    Fudayl ibn ‘Iyaad {rahim'ullah} said: "Whichever man comes to asking for advice and he directs him to an innovator then he has acted deceitfully towards Islam, and beware of entering upon a person of innovation since they prevent from the truth." (Al-Laalikaa’ee, no.261)

    You - a woman is a CONTRADICTION of the quran & sunnah which DEGRADES woman as often as possible and that woman is still its biggest supporter.

    Every human is :
    "the best of mankind"
    in the eyes of the supreme being.

    How can muslims (the ones who are not the deviants according to appkiammanat's) definition)claim to be the best of mankind when they are the:
    "worst of mankind"


    Something to think about! But, you have given that up for a dogma that treats you like a piece of meat.

      I hope you can read, if you can write/type. The Muslims cannot be "best" until follow Quran and Sunnah, so today's Muslims are not anyway closer to be being "best". (I am talking about Muslims generally, on mass basis, individiually there must be some good Muslims around).

      Rest of your blabbering is ignored

        As usual, you've got it wrong again.

        Your errors are like clockwork and death!

        In other words, GUARANTEED.

        The Muslims are the best of creatures and Non-Muslims, like you, are the worst!

        Don't take my word for it.

        Research for yourself.

        Your own Creator has said so:

        098.006 Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.

        098.007 Those who have faith and do righteous deeds,- they are the best of creatures.

        If you disagree, don't come crying to me, complain to God.

        And as far as women are concerned, you'd best look closer to home!!!

          Shiism treats women like crap. NOT ISLAM.

          One little example is the concept of one-hour mut'ah

          But, when the Shiite religion was being formulated about 1200 or more years ago , it was politically correct to treat women like animals. People couldn't have imagined what the world would have been like 1200 years later. So, they came up with such unintelligible and ridiculous beliefs and concepts, which although must have sounded very complex and modern 1200 years ago, but are now at best laughable.

          This is the problem with every religion EXCEPT Islam.

          Only Islam is applicable at all times and all ages.

          For example, consider the hadeeth of the Holy Prophet (S) where he said that had he not feared that it would cause much hardship to his Ummah, he would have made using the miswaak (natural toothbrush - "daantun") obligatory. Now, only a Prophet could have seen that far, and been that practical.



          How can muslims (the ones who are not the deviants according to appkiammanat's) definition)claim to be the best of mankind when they are the:
          "worst of mankind"
          Watch your language. You are not in your Imambara.

              You mean - the West!

              In the west if you:
              1)Married FOUR women at one time - you go to jail.

              2)Try treating her "officially Sanctioned from Up above" as a piece of meat like the below:
              "women are like a tilth(field) so till(cultivate) her as you see fit" HQ.
              and, you would go to Jail!

              3)Try labelling women as 1/2 of men or DEFICIENT in intelligence & religion and you will have the laws of the infidels breathing down your back and you will go to jail.

              WOULD you like me to continue....

                Just in case you forgot, some of us are actually born, bred and educated in the West.

                But that doesn't mean we forget who we are!!

                However, please inform us as to when did the West grant women the Right to Divorce, Vote and Inheritance to name but a few?

                While you're at it, you can comment on Marriage,Abortion,Rape,Divorce,Single Parents,Health,Alcohol,Smoking and Pornography issues specifically related to women in the West!

                You may use at least 3 centuries as a guide!!!

                And as far as equality is concerned, western women are nothing but sexual objects, fooled into false equality but in reality, dictated by Capitalism, Feminism, Marxism, Liberalism and any other 'ism you want to throw in for good measure.

                Like I said, take a closer look at home.

                And oh yes, please do continue!!!

                  very true. All these "isms" are part of 'fitna-e-dajjal' where people will be fooled in name of equality, independence, feminism etc.

                      OKAY!

                      Over the last 3 centuries:

                      1)The Infidel West became enlightened;

                      Islam slept thru it; decided 'enlightenment' is a kuffar concept.

                      2) The Infidel West had an industrial revolution and then an Equality revolution and more recently a computer & space revolution - to name a few.

                      Islam slept thru it; decided all those did not exist in the Quran & Sunnah and was thus - Kuffar!

                      3) The Infidel West freed the slaves; gave women the vote; put minorities in office of power.

                      Islam slept right thru it! Decided that Slaves are eternal as every word of the quran and cannot be abolished; women in islam still struggle to find dignity & respect; while - minorities are for all eternity - damned!

                      SHOLAY:
                      You missed a big point which is:
                      The Infidel society can "evolve";
                      while Islam will sleep right thru all evolutions because to EVOLVE - is KUFFAR!


                      Should we continue...

                            Sholay,

                            DE-RAILING like what ? And, why should I derail?

                            That Islam treates woman as 'meat' according to the DIVINE wish /injunction of Allah!

                            and,

                            the Infidel WEST treats both - men & women as 'meat' per their individual design or choice.
                            Stated differently - many woman see men as 'piece of meat' and not per the DIVINE injuction.
                            Being a piece of meat is not the prerogative of men only!

                            The Difference is:
                            One dogma treats only the woman as - meat.
                            The other treats both as - meat and per individual choice.

                            GOOD LUCK with your delusions.


                            You see - points like these are mute! But - I am still impressed that you wish to beat the drum about a creed that is bankrupt!
