THE HOLY PROPHET’S Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam TREATMENT OF THE HYPOCRITES.

The Most Compassionate Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam was ordered by Allah – سبحانه و تعالى – to tear down the so called “mosque” built by the hypocrites. So when it is ordered that even such “mosques” are to demolished, how foolish it would be for someone to assist in constructing such a building and praying behind hypocrites!

The building which they erected will constantly keep disturbing their hearts unless their hearts are torn to pieces; and Allah is All Knowing, Wise [Taubah 9:110].

يَزَا ل بنۡيَٰ ن ه م ٱلَّذِى بَنَوۡ ا
رِيبَة فِى ق ل وبِهِمۡ إِ أَن
تَقَطَّعَ ق ل و ب همۡ وَٱلِّلَّ عَلِي م حَكِي م

On a Friday, the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam ascended the pulpit of the Masjid Nabawi and expelled 34 hypocrites saying, “Get out – you so and so, son of so and so – for you are a hypocrite”. When they were leaving the mosque, Syedna Umar bin Khattab Radi Allahu anhu arrived, thinking he was late. When he was later informed about it, he claimed he would have killed all of them rather than letting them go out alive. Fath al-BarI, Umdat ul-Qari

And after a long time of patiently forbearing the misdeeds of the hypocrites, he expelled them from the holy mosque in Medina (Masjid Nabawi). And we have now some evil scholars who openly invite proclaimed polytheists and infidels to desecrate our mosques and even perform their polytheistic worship inside it! What sort of faith is this? And what sort of Sunnah is this?

We also now have certain people saying that we should not call any Kaafir (disbeliever) a Kaafir. This is indeed a self-made rule – for it openly contradicts the Holy Qur’an (read Surah Kafiroon) and the Sunnah.

Narrated Syedna `Abdullah bin `Umar Radi Allahu anhu : When `Abdullah bin Ubai (bin Salul) died, his son came to Allah’s Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam and said, “O Allah’s Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam, give me your shirt so that I may shroud my father’s body in it. And please offer a funeral prayer for him and invoke Allah for his forgiveness.” The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam gave him his shirt and said to him, “Inform us, when you finish call us”. When he had finished he told the Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam and the Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam proceeded to order his funeral prayers but `Umar Radi Allahu anhu stopped him and said, “Didn’t Allah forbid you to offer the funeral prayer for the hypocrites when He said, ”Whether you ask forgiveness for them or not ask forgiveness for them; even if you ask forgiveness for them seventy times, Allah will not forgive them.” Later, it was revealed: “And never offer funeral prayers for any of them who dies, nor stand by his grave.” (9.84) After that, Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam did not offer funeral prayers for the hypocrites. (Bukhari) – several versions

And once He Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam received the command of His Lord, Allah – سبحانه و تعالى -, he even stopped praying the funeral for the hypocrites although the hypocrites had not openly rejected Islam. Read the rest of this entry »

THE MODEL BEHAVIOR OF THE HOLY PROPHET Salla Allahu ta’ala’ alayhi wa sallam & HIS COMPANIONS Radi Allahu anhum

We now quote the several examples of the leader of all mankind, the mercy unto the creation, the compassionate and loving prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’ alayhi wa sallam – whose character has been praised in the Holy Qur’an as being the noblest of all. And he the best to be followed!

See what the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’ alayhi wa sallam was commanded to proclaim, as is in the Holy Qur’an: to have all actions only for Allah, to shun the path of infidels, and to be separated in matters of religion from all disbelievers.

And the People given the Book(s) said, “Become Jews or Christians – you will attain the right path”; say, “No – rather we take the religion of Ibrahim, who was far removed from all falsehood; and was not of the polytheists.” [Baqarah 2:135]

وَقَال و ا ڪو نو ا هو دا أَوۡ نَصَٰرَىٰ تَ تَۡۡ دو ا ق لۡ بَلۡ مِلَّةَ
إِبۡرَٳهِۧ م حَنِي فا وَمَا كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡ مشۡرِكِينَ

Say, “Undoubtedly my prayers and my sacrifices, and my living and my dying are all for Allah, the Lord Of The Creation.” [Ana`am 6:162]

ق لۡ إِنَّ صَلَاتِى وَ ن سكِى وَمَحۡيَاىَ وَمَمَاتِى لِِّلَِّ رَبّ
ٱلۡعَٰلَمِينَ

Proclaim, “O disbelievers!” Neither do I worship what you worship. Nor do you worship Whom I worship. And neither will I ever worship what you worship. Nor will you worship Whom I worship. For you is your religion, and for me is mine. [Kafiroon 109:1-6]

ق لۡ يَٰٓأَ ي اَۡ ٱلۡڪَٰفِ رونَ أَعۡ ب د مَا تَعۡ ب دونَ وَ أَن تمۡ
عَٰبِ دونَ مَ آ أَعۡ ب د وَ أَنَ ا عَابِ د مَّا عَبَد تمۡ وَ أَن تمۡ
عَٰبِ دونَ مَ آ أَعۡ ب د لَ كمۡ دِي ن كمۡ وَلِىَ دِينِ

The noble Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’ alayhi wa sallam , the owner of the best character, made it very clear to the disbelievers that he gave precedence to his relation to faith over and above his politeness towards others. Read the rest of this entry »

LOVING ALLAH & THE HOLY PROPHET Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam

Say, “If your fathers, and your sons, and your brothers, and your wives, and your tribe, and your acquired wealth, and the trade in which you fear a loss, and the houses of your liking – if all these are dearer to you than Allah and His Noble Messenger and fighting in His way, then wait until Allah brings about His command; and Allah does not guide the sinful.” [Taubah 9:24]

ق لۡ إِن كَانَ ءَابَآ ؤ كمۡ وَأَبۡنَآ ؤ ڪمۡ وَإِخۡوَٳ ن كمۡ وَأَزۡوَٳ ج كمۡ
وَعَشِيرَ ت كمۡ وَأَمۡوَٳ ل ٱقۡتَرَفۡ ت موهَا وَتِجَٰرَةً۬ تَخۡشَوۡنَ
كَسَادَهَا وَمَسَٰكِ ن تَرۡضَوۡنَهَآ أَحَبَّ إِلَيۡڪ م مّنَ ٱلِّلَِّ
وَرَ سولِهِ وَجِهَا د فِى سَبِيلِهِ فَتَرَبَّ صو ا حَتَّىٰ يَأۡتِىَ
ٱلِّلَّ بِأَمۡرِهِ وَٱلِّلَّ يَ دِۡۡى ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلۡفَٰسِقِينَ

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness of faith: (1). The one to whom Allah and His Apostle become dearer than anything else. (2). Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah’s sake. (3). Who hates to revert to disbelief as he hates to be thrown into the fire.” 6

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam said “None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind.” 7

The above verse from the Holy Qur’an and 2 narrations testify that just the proclamation of faith is not useful, unless a person truly loves Allah, and His beloved Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam.

LOVE FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH, HATE FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH

O People who Believe! Whoever among you reneges from his religion, so Allah will soon bring a people who are His beloved ones and Allah is their beloved, lenient with the Muslims and stern towards disbelievers – they will strive in Allah’s cause, and not fear the criticism of any accuser; this is Allah’s munificence, He may give to whomever He wills; and Allah is the Most Capable, the All Knowing. [Maidah 5:54]

يَٰٓأَ ي اَۡ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَ نو ا مَن يَرۡتَدَّ مِن كمۡ عَن دِينِهِ فَسَوۡفَ
يَأۡتِى ٱلِّلَّ بِقَوۡ م يحِ ب مۡ وَ يحِ بونَ ه أَذِلَّ ة عَلَى ٱلۡ مؤۡمِنِينَ
أَعِزَّ ة عَلَى ٱلۡكَٰفِرِينَ يجَٰهِ دونَ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱلِّلَِّ وَ يَخَاف ونَ لَوۡمَةَ ٮ م ذَٳلِكَ فَضۡ ل ٱلِّلَِّ يؤۡتِيهِ مَن يَشَآ ء وَٱلِّلَّ وَٳسِ ع عَلِي م

See O dear Muslims! Whom does Allah the Supreme love? It is those Muslims who are soft-hearted towards their Muslim brothers, and stern with the disbelievers. And who do you think knows more than Allah? Read the following 2 Hadith to understand that the best of deeds in Allah’s sight are to have love for His sake, and to hate for His sake!

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam said, “ The best of the actions is to love for the sake of Allah and to hate for the sake of Allah.” 8

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam said, “ The most beloved of deeds in the sight of Allah is to love for the sake of Allah and to hate for the sake of Allah.” 9

And reflect on this Hadith, that defines the requirement of having perfect faith!

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam said, “If anyone loves for Allah’s sake, hates for Allah’s sake, gives for Allah’s sake and withholds for Allah’s sake, he will have perfect faith.10

And the following 2 Hadith teach you how to maintain your faith (have the strongest link):-

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam said, “The strongest link in faith is to have good relations only for the sake of Allah, and to have love only for the sake of Allah and hatred only for the sake of Allah.11

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam said, “The strongest link in faith is to love only for the sake of Allah and hate only for the sake of Allah.” 12

Observe that loving for the sake of Allah, and hating for the sake of Allah is classified as the best of deeds – superior to prayers, pilgrimage, charity, fasting and even jihad – for all these cannot be properly achieved without firm faith, that depends on the above rules.
