While today’s Muslim world doesn’t follow animal welfare principle and anti-Islam activists label it as Islam’s tyranny and attack our religion and Prophet!
So an insight into Islam’s view on Animal welfare is important in current world.
Below are some of the Prophetic statements (Hadith) regarding the welfare of animals.
SUNAN ABU DAWOO: SESSION-THE BOOK OF JIHAD
The Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Do not clip the forelocks, manes or tails of horses. For they use their tails to drive away flies, and their manes provide them with warmth, and the goodness is tied in their forelocks”. Sunan Abu Dawood 2542
It was reported from Abu Hurairah (R.A) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Once while a man was walking walking on the road, he became extremely thirsty . He found a well and went down into it. He drank from the water and came out . He saw a dog panting heavily and eating soil due to it’s thirst. The Man said: “This Dog must be in the same condition of thirst as I was”. So he went down into the well and filled his khuff with water, and held by his mouth until he climbed up. He gave water to the dog to drink. Allah accepted his deed and forgave him”. They said: O Messenger of Allah! Are there rewards for us in our animals?. He said : “For every moist liver (living creature) there is a reward (Sahih) Sunan Abu Dawood 2550, Also in Shaih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim
Anas bin Malik (R.A) said; “Whenever we dismounted at a camp, we would not perform any voluntary prayer until we let the mounts gaze (Sahih) Sunan Abu Dawood 2551
“The Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) prohibited instigating fight between beasts” Sunan Abu Dawood 2562
It was reported from Abu Az-Zubair , from Jabir who said: “A donkey which had been branded in the face , passed by the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) . He said: ‘Has it not reached you people, that I have cursed those who brand animals on their faces?’So he prohibited that”. (Sahih) Sunan Abu Dawood 2564
Islam paved the way for Renaissance and the world learned Welfare principles from Islam. How old is the European Animal welfare system? This is 1400 years old Animal Welfare principles
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Allahumma swalli ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ala aali Sayyidina Muhammadin wa sallim
Wahabis and other ignorant sects treat non-Muslims so harshly by taking some Quran verses out of context. The verses that deals with Non-Muslims who are waging war against Muslims. They apply this verses out of context and use to legitimise their mistreatment of peaceful non-Muslims.
Some others pick and choose Quran Veres out of context and usually from hearing YouTube mullahs who have such merciless heart, just as they have malice against awliya Allah and Ahlul Bayth.
Below is the Hadith which Shows How Umar Ibn Al Khattab (Radiyallahu Anhu) treated his Non-Muslim relative:
It was narrated from Abdullah Ibn Umar that Umar ibn Al Khattab saw a ‘Hullah’ (a garment made of silk) and said: “O Messenger of Allah, why don’t you buy this and Wear it on Fridays and when meeting the delegations when they come to you?”. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “This is worn by one who has no share in the Hereafter.” Then something similar was brought to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and he gave a Hullah to Umar from it. Umar said :” O Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), have you give me this when you said what you said about the Hullah of Utarid? ” The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: ” I have not given it to you to wear it.”
So Umar gave it to an idolater brother of his in Makkah. (Sahih)
So we can see that non-Muslims who does not harm Muslims, they deserve a fair treatment with justice and kindness according to the understanding of the salaf saliheen. Even those who are guilty of commiting serious crimes must go through the law proceedings and people who are not in authority taking the duty of the police is not allowed in Islam, except when invasion to their private properties or places just as such laws are prevailing in nations and communities.
Wa salamun alal mursaleen Walhamdulillahi Rabbil Aaalameen
BREXIT REFERENDUM AND IT’S IMPACT ON BRITISH MUSLIMS AND ETHNIC MINORITIES: (23/06/2016)
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. Today Britons voting for a referendum to decide whether to leave the European Union or to remain in the EU. For Muslims Jews and other ethnic and religious minorities what does it mean?.
Britain’s membership in the European Union has helped british people especially religious and ethnic minorities, vulnerable and youth from all back grounds. In safeguarding human rights and youth development European Union has played a vital role. In Civil and Economic areas and supporting refugees European Union rules and regulations helped in upholding social values and human rights.
For Muslims and other people in general to enjoy this social securities and benefits , Britain should remain in European Union.
About Britain Exiting European Union:
I heard many Muslims and non-Muslims voting to leave EU and encouraging their friends and relatives to vote for leave!. However, this is one of the suicidal act of Muslims and non-Muslims alike!. It is coming from people’s narrow mindedness and lack of deep insight.
Because: The only organisations that want Britain to leave thie European Union is far right, fascist, anti-Muslim, anti-Mainstream christian, anti-Human right, intolerant groups and parties. The Fascist , anti-Muslim far right political groups want the same Asians and Muslims to be kicked out from the UK or to be persecuted.
You may ask, how this (leaving EU) affect us Muslims and non-Muslims?. Even conservative prime minister, David Cameroon want Brits to stay in the EU. So you must understand the importance of staying in the EU. So if Britons vote to leave EU and a Brexit would happen , that time, it will be a national success for the far right , fascist , anti-Muslim that their campaign become a success.
That success will eventually lead, Britain to become a fully nationalist state, with no-control from an external Judiciary. Over the time, if fascists take over British politics, that time the suicidal drop that Muslims swallowed today by voting to leave EU will start working and harming Muslims.
So Muslims and others favoring their organisational interests means, supporting their cause indirectly. Which means it is suicidal to vote to leave the EU.
So, over the time, if the fascists take over the rule of the nationalist state,, it will be an opening to conflicts and riots, between far right groups in different religions and ethnicities. This will harm British society a great deal, that time it affect everyone, it’s consequences will befall on everyone regardless of their back-ground.
Britain leaving EU may do some good for Britons, but it will be without Muslims and ethnic minorities living in this country. People are not really following the true message of their religion or values this days!. Everyone is greedy and angry about everything, this kind of social situation caused by a vote will put the responsibility in the hands of everyone. Those who voted in favour of leaving the EU and those who did not vote at all!
United Kingdom leaving the EU will only strengthen far right fascist Anti-Muslim nationalism. You will have mosques banned , Madrassas closed and Hijab banned over the time. For others, multiculturalism will come to an end!.In the event far rights take over the Westminster Parliament in the future, you have no back up plan from the EU to keep your rights and safety.
For rest of the people, social tensions, riots far right-Anti Far right fights and bombs in the streets in the future decades. Just remember anglo-irish war!. Do we need Anglo far right-Muslim wars in the UK? No, we do not need anymore violence in the world. We are tired of seeing and hearing wars and bloodshed!
Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala giving intelligence to man, Ifi he use it n the right way he will make peace with all mankind. But if he use it in the wrong way he will make conflict within himself and chaos and mischief around him.
Islam teach that the best Muslim is the one with best morals and manners. We must uphold the human rights, justice, tolerance, harmony, love and peace. This is an informal statement and whoever listen and obey will find goodness, and whoever turning away from this message, the responsibility will be in their own hands.
IS IT PERMISSIBLE TO VOTE?
Some Muslims say, voting is not permissible at all. They quote a Quran verse out of context and say, voting is forbidden in Islam! In certain times, Islam allows certain forbidden/disliked actions to be permissible, Islam is a practical religion with practical wisdom it is not a classroom philosophy subject.
It is Haram (forbidden) to murder someone, but Islam says, if that one person cause 10 innocent people to die, then better that one person must die instead of 10 innocent people to die by his hands. The Army and Police of all nations work in this principles.
But Islam also says it is important to stop evil. And when all become evil, choose lesser evil.
Or you can run away from the system. If you cannot run away (flee from afflictions) then stop evil that is coming against Islam. We have difficult situation, no shariah no Caliph. So it depends on place to place.
There was a situation In America, the counselor wanted to demolish the Osmanli Cemetery, we had to approach them for our rights and honour to protect the cemetery.
So it is Muslims responsibility to support those who uphold or respect Muslims and their rights.
When it is allowed to eat even forbidden meat in such difficult situations. It is forbidden to elect oppressors. If you fear oppressors will take over the place and harm believers, then it is a duty to choose the Ruler
On the authority of Abu Sa`eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim] (Imam Nawawi 40 Hadith-number 34
So if you are able to stop anti-Muslim/far right/fascist groups taking power by leaving EU and going to extreme nationalist politics over the time, then it is obligatory (Fard-Ain) for you to step in and vote to remain in the EU. Do not support evil.
So many Christians are voting to Stay in the EU. Some are voting to exit. If they follow the teachings of Gospel , they may vote to stay in the EU. The Bible says to love your neighbour as you love yourself, foreigners residing among you as you love yourself, you must love them as you love yourself. And to submit to the teachings of Christ and resist the evil (James 4:7) and make the evil flee from you.
As we can see leaving European Union and it’s consequences will bring an impact on everyone’s life. A believer must support what is good for all human being. Unfortunately people make fatwa not to vote and do not make fatwa not to open a bank or not to hold a credit card account in HSBC and American Express. You are partaking in riba (usury) institutions and ceasing to stop evil coming against Muslims and all humanity? I see every Muslim cleric with a credit card/bank account that do business in the Riba (usury) contract, though they are not taking usury to their pocket, they are part of the system. But if you are not a part of the system you are living in, then this message is not for you.
TO BRITISH MUSLIMS AND ETHNIC MINORITIES (EUROPEANS AND NON-EUROPEANS) LIVING IN THE UK: 24/06/2016
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah. Allah does not change a people’s lot unless they change what is in their hearts. (Quran 13:11)
“REFERENDUM” IN POLITICS:
Referendum is the highest method of democracy,the final world of general public. So most hailed method of decision making in Democratic system. Referendum is a method that is to be used to make decision that need greater voice of the people than just some elected representative of the people!.
Therefore, Britain or another state cannot ignore results of a “Referendum”. This is why Prime Minister resigned the same day of the result of Referendum published.
So if Britons want to ignore or change Referendum, because now Scotland and Northern Ireland want to leave UK to Join EU, then majority Brits who voted to leave EU will look stupids and wicked. Because it shows people’s lack of knowledge and understanding of the reality. And how they are fooled by politicians who want to get out of the EU by giving people false promise to make them vote to leave EU.
Anyway,spiritually, I would consider this shaking and collapse of leaving EU as a divine punishment (Quran 108:3 for enmity to Allah and Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), legalising what Allah has forbidden in Torah, Gospel and Enjil and disrespecting holy months (see Isaiah 66:17, 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9). So many arrogant and foolish Muslims voted to leave EU, because they know nothing about the consequences of what they have done!.
Muslims not following the teachings of the Holy Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam), and God’s curse coming down, and whole world is receiving divine wrath because of their disobedience to Divine Orders and dishonoring prophets.
Quran 24:63 Do not make [your] calling of the Messenger among yourselves as the call of one of you to another. Already Allah knows those of you who slip away, concealed by others. So let those beware who dissent from the Prophet’s order, lest fitnah strike them or a painful punishment.
The Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam foretold that people will become corrupt sects and they will fight against one another for worldly possessions. Everyone today worshiping their own ego and they have been deceived to a destruction!
CONSEQUENCES OF BRITAIN’S EXIT FROM THE EU:
In all countries around the world, after globalisation and multiculturalism (the system of Dajjal), the enemy of Mankind inspiring your hearts far right views and extreme nationalism and racism. Brexit is just another example of this. Whatever Allah Almighty has decreed will come to Happen. But our Message is not in Divine Decree or Belief, but in the laws and commandments, that Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala is Giving through Holy Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam and Holy Awliya Allah.
Everyone believes in pre-destiny, but we are commanded to work according to the religious duties and commandments. Everyone knows one day they will die, but no one cease to work ,because they know they die one day unexpectedly.
1-Brexit will inspire other far right groups to seek referendum to leave the EU. 2- It is a victory of the Far right, Fascist, Anti-Muslim, Anti-Immigration groups in the UK, and failure of the Labour,Conservative and Liberals. This means, Far right parties will come to power and will increase tensions between far rights and ethnic minorities.
3- Scotland and Northern-Ireland, who look for independance will seek further referendum to leave the UK, and they will leave UK to join EU, This will terminate the existence of the United Kingdom.
4-Other EU member states may seek to leave EU, will bring an end to not only EU, but also the existence of Other European provinces in Europe who will look for referendum to leave EU or to join EU when the main state leave EU and will cause to leave their national state (like Spanish Catalonia). This will destabilise mainland Europe over the time. Since everyone worshiping democracy, and “Referendum” is the direct election and most straight form of Democracy, “Referendum” which is the mother of Democracy will cause nations to struggle.
5–Far right groups gaining power will lead to communal conflicts and riots over the time. The next British and European politics will be far right domination. Far right supporters may lead violent attacks against ethnic minorities in the event they take over UK and European national politics after exiting the EU. We are going to back to history?
6-Muslims and other ethnic/religious minority will be persecuted in the event of major chaos (see Points 2-3-4). The role of hate preachers and hate speakers will come to practical events and the fruits of this false preachers who preach against Islam and Muslims will cause Syrian type Civil wars and conflicts in the Europe. Which will lead to death of world economy and political system , out of hand situation (Anarchy) 7- People in the UK voted Mr David Cameroon and his party to lead the UK, and they rejected his plead to continue in the EU, this shows people are ignorant. The same people who elected Conservative rejected the same party in the EU referendum and made the far right groups victorious. This shows the ignorance people and weakness of democracy. You may elect doctors and prime ministers through voting!. David Cameroon resigning from the office is a failure of the people who voted to leave EU and voted conservatives last election. Literally, the legitimacy of Conservative government is in question now. This is a failure of the ruling party and opposition parties and a victory of Far right groups!
No-Win Win Solution!.
It has become a lose-lose catastrophe for all parties and even for people , only far right groups have won this referendum.
Awliya Allah (friends of Allah) speak according to the spiritually inspired knowledge from the Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswlathu wa salam). Everything will go according to the Information (Hadith) given by the Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam. Because people have left the commandments of Allah Almighty and living a dirty and corrupt life style. No more wisdom, remains in the hearts of the majority. And we are awaiting to see the Owner of the Time, Sayyidina Mahdi appears and put everything in order.
Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (Q.S) advised Muslims to brexit in 2010. Not to exit EU, but to leave West and return to Homeland.
The people have no intelligence today,, especially Muslims, Muslim clerics ,Imams and scholars. They are only looking to build Mosques make funds from people and government, which will be demolished in the future and they will have to flee. Their misguidance and strayed ways and people following their ego and evil desires and selfishness is going to cause Divine Judgement to fall on them. May Allah forgive us. Whatever must happen by the Will of Allah, Must happen.
I am not going to interfere into that kind of knowledge. But this news is based on the teachings of My Shaykhs Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S) and Sahibul Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-KIbrisi (Q.S), a News that is coming from the Master of the Beginning and End, Sayyiduna Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam.
This is a reminder for people, first to those who claim they are the followers of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S), secondly to all Muslims, thirdly to all brothers and sisters in humanity. Whether they want to listen understand and obey.

Can Muslims Celebrate Christmas?.
Muslims may not celebrate “Christmas”, but may celebrate the Milad of Isa bin Maryam (birthday of Jesus Son of Mary-Peace be upon them). They should differ from other faiths the way of celebrating . Muslims may celebrate the Birthdays of all Prophets and all holy people as much as they can.
Quran says: 2:285…“We make no distinction between any of His messengers.”.….
You must understand Christianity is different and Jesus Christ (A.S) is different. We have more rights to Prophets than anyone else!, especially Jesus Son of Mary (A.S), the last leader of this this nation.
As for Isa Son of Mary (A.S) he is closer to Muslims than any other people. He is closer to this nation, as he is coming to this nation as a leader in the end of times. So we are celebrating the birthday of the Last Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam). We are conducting Mawlid celebrations in different days and months to commemorate the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w). So it is not necessary to know the birthday of the Prophet Jesus Christ (A.S).
Islam did not make it obligatory (fard) to celebrate the birthdays of all Prophets, because God Almighty does not want to burden the people. Especially in the times of Prophets they did not celebrate the birthdays of previous Prophets, as we see the birthday celebrations today. Because in the time of Prophets and their companions, they were in most difficult times, and hardships, and they had much heavy duty. This is why they celebrated it by fasting or by sacrificing their worldly pleasures.
The Prophet Muhamamd (s.a.w) says: Sahih Bukhari ,Narrated Abu Huraira: Two persons, a Muslim and a Jew, quarrelled. The Muslim said, “By Him Who gave Muhammad superiority over all the people! The Jew said, “By Him Who gave Moses superiority over all the people!” At that the Muslim raised his hand and slapped the Jew on the face. The Jew went to the Prophet and informed him of what had happened between him and the Muslim. The Prophet sent for the Muslim and asked him about it. The Muslim informed him of the event. The Prophet said, “do not give me superiority over Moses, for on the Day of Resurrection all the people will fall unconscious and I will be one of them, but I will. be the first to gain consciousness, and will see Moses standing and holding the side of the Throne (of Allah). I will not know whether (Moses) has also fallen unconscious and got up before me, or Allah has exempted him from that stroke.” (Book 41, Hadith 594)
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: A man from the Jews, having been slapped on his face, came to the Prophet and said, “O Muhammad! A man from your companions from the Ansar has slapped me on my face!” The Prophet said, “Call him.” When they called him, the Prophet said, “Why did you slap him?” He said, “O Allah’s Apostle! While I was passing by the Jews, I heard him saying, ‘By Him Who selected Moses above the human beings,’ I said, ‘Even above Muhammad?’ I became furious and slapped him on the face.” The Prophet said, “do not give me superiority over the other prophets, for on the Day of Resurrection the people will become unconscious and I will be the first to regain consciousness. Then I will see Moses holding one of the legs of the Throne. I will not know whether he has come to his senses before me or that the shock he had received at the Mountain, (during his worldly life) was sufficient for him.” (Bukhari,Book 60, Hadith 162)
This is enough to understand that, if someone wish to celebrate the birthday of Prophet Moses (A.S), Prophet Jesus (A.S) or Prophet Abraham (A.S) he cannot be stopped. I do not think Ulema of Ahlu Sunnah will do so!
“Christmas” is an established celebration which is a mix of Pagan traditions and Christian beliefs of Jesus Christ (A.S). As for Muslims, they may take every opportunity to convey the truth about Jesus Christ (A.S) and his mother during the christian occasions. Muslims may not say “Christmas or Merry Christmas”, they may say: “Eid Milaad Nabi Esa” or Mawlid Messiah Isa Ibn Maryam, or Celebrating the Birthday of Jesus Christ (A.S) instead of “Merry Christmas”. They may celebrate in other days than December 25, or join two days celebration either December 24 and 25 or December 25 and 26, or in the mothers where the dates harvest time of Israel
Because , the Prophet (s.a.w) says: Sahih Bukhari,Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri: the Prophet said, “You will follow the ways of those nations who were before you, span by span and cubit by cubit (i.e., inch by inch) so much so that even if they entered a hole ofa mastigure, you would follow them.” We said, “O Allah’s Apostle! (Do you mean) the Jews and theChristians?” He said, “Whom else?” (Book 92, Hadith 422)
It does not mean that every act other faith is doing is rejected in Islam, because the Prophets were Muslims, and the Muslims can respect and accept that which is commanded to the previous Prophets. What is forbidden and imitating Jews and Christians means to follow that which is deviated from the teachings of their Prophets. For this reasons, Christmas cannot be celebrated the way it is celebrated by the Christians or Western Secularists.
The Prophet (S.a.w) celebrating Ashura:
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet came to Medina and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashura. He asked them about that. They replied, “This is a good day, the day on which Allah rescued Bani Israel from their enemy. So, Moses fasted this day.” The Prophet said, “We have more claim over Moses than you.” So, the Prophet fasted on that day and ordered (the Muslims) to fast (on that day). (Sahih Bukhari Book 31, Hadith 222)
Narrated Abu Musa: The day of ‘Ashura’ was considered as ‘Id day by the Jews. So the Prophet ordered, “I recommend you (Muslims) to fast on this day.” (Sahih Bukhari, Book 31, Hadith 223)
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: When the Prophet came to Medina, he found (the Jews) fasting on the day of ‘Ashura’ (i.e. 10th of Muharram). They used to say: “This is a great day on which Allah saved Moses and drowned the folk of Pharaoh. Moses observed the fast on this day, as a sign of gratitude to Allah.” The Prophet said, “I am closer to Moses than they.” So, he observed the fast (on that day) and ordered the Muslims to fast on it.(Book 55, Hadith 609)
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all the people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.” (Sahih Bukhari, Book 55, Hadith 652)
So the Muslims may celebrate the Birthday of Jesus Christ (A.S) and differ from others celebrating it.
Abdullah b. ‘Umar (Allah be pleased with them) reported that (the Arabs of) pre-Islamic days used to observe fast on the day of Ashura and the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) observed it and the Muslims too (observed it) before fasting in Ramadan became obligatory. But when it became obligatory, the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: ‘Ashura is one of the days of Allah, so he who wished should observe fast and he who wished otherwise should abandon it.(Sahih Muslim,Book 006, Hadith 2504)
Quran 3:45 [And mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary – distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah ].
WHY SHOULD NOT WE FOLLOW THE WAYS OF OTHER FAITHS AND SECULARISTS IN CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS /BIRTHDAY OF JESUS SON OF MARY (PEACE BE UPON THEM):
The Main reason is “We should not imitate other nations. The Prophet (s.a.w) said: “Whoever imitate a nation is one of them”
The Main fallacy of Church and those who say “We are guided by holy spirit” is that they Christianize the celebrations of the Pagans in the Winter. We say a proverb in Malayalam, which is like “the beauty cream applied on face became skin burn” . Whether they acknowledge it or not. They have brought dishonor to the birth of Christ (A.S) and celebrating his Birth in the winter Pagan festival time.
In Europe December is winter time, short sunlight , people get winter syndromes and depression, this may be the reason why they made to celebrate Christmas this times. But by Christianize the pagan celebration it bring dishonor to the holy one who is the one of the greatest Prophets of God.
This is the celebration every lawless life style is evoked. The desires of the ego is served. Alcohol, Gambling, free sex, free mixing of men and women, this is not acceptable in the ways of God. This time it is promoted materialism lawlessness and self destruction. Because people not returning to the the Message that Christ (A.S) gave to this world!.
So it is the responsibility of Muslims to remind others during this times the purpose of life and the Message of Jesus Christ (A.S).
The Bible says:[Colossians 2:8 NIV] See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
2 Corinthians 6:14Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
The Bible does not give the date of Jesus’ birth, nor does it say that we should celebrate his birthday. As McClintock and Strong’s Cyclopediastates: “The observance of Christmas is not of divine appointment, nor is it of NT [New Testament] origin.”
Instead, an examination of the history of Christmas exposes its roots in pagan religious rites. The Bible shows that we offend God if we try to worship him in a way that he does not approve of.—Exodus 32:5-7.
History of Christmas customs
Celebrating Jesus’ birthday: “The early Christians did not celebrate [Jesus’] birth because they considered the celebration of anyone’s birth to be a pagan custom.”—The World Book Encyclopedia.
December 25: There is no proof that Jesus was born on that date. Church leaders likely chose this date to coincide with pagan festivals held on or around the winter solstice.
Gift-giving, feasting, partying: The Encyclopedia Americanasays: “Saturnalia, a Roman feast celebrated in mid-December, provided the model for many of the merry-making customs of Christmas. From this celebration, for example, were derived the elaborate feasting, the giving of gifts, and the burning of candles.” The Encyclopædia Britannica notes that “all work and business were suspended” during Saturnalia.
Christmas lights: According to The Encyclopedia of Religion, Europeans decorated their homes “with lights and evergreens of all kinds” to celebrate the winter solstice and to combat evil spirits.
Mistletoe, holly: “The Druids ascribed magical properties to the mistletoe in particular. The evergreen holly was worshiped as a promise of the sun’s return.”—The Encyclopedia Americana.
Christmas tree: “Tree worship, common among the pagan Europeans, survived after their conversion to Christianity.” One of the ways in which tree worship survived is in the custom of “placing a Yule tree at an entrance or inside the house in the midwinter holidays.”—Encyclopædia Britannica.
As Muslims, we may join any invitations if it fulfills the law of Islam , that when no contradiction to our faith is practiced. Some fools say: We should not celebrate the Birthday of Nabi Isa (A.S), the same people using Bible to preach (Dawah) Islam. Is that allowed in Islam? . You can see them in their TV Channels and Youtube.
Quran 3:84 Say, “We have believed in Allah and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [submitting] to Him.”
Quran 3:104 And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful.
SAWLIHEEN (RIGHTEOUS) AMONG THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK:
Quran 3:113 -114 They are not [all] the same; among the People of the Scripture is a community standing [in obedience], reciting the verses of Allah during periods of the night and prostrating [in prayer].They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and hasten to good deeds. And those are among the righteous.
Quran 89:27 -28 [To the righteous it will be said], “O reassured soul,Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him],
The world turning to so much corruption, violence lawlessness, and intolerance. This is not the purpose of religions. So we must keep a good conduct with all people and help them to come to righteousness and faith, not by dishonoring and defaming them. But through love, mercy and service according to the traditions of Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam)
Can Muslim ask Jew or Christian to pray for him?:
Some foolish one’s attack Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s humbleness when meeting with Pope and asking his prayers. But this Jahils (ignorant ones) think they know religion better than Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S)
Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Said from Amra bint Abd ar-Rahman that Abu Bakr as-Siddiq visited A’isha while she had a [health] complaint and a Jewish woman was making incantation (ruqya) for her. Abu Bakr said, “Do it (incantation) with the Book of Allah.” (Muwatta Imam Malik R.A) Book 50, Hadith 50.4.11)
Respecting Non-Muslims ,Even after their death:
So many idiotic groups in the name of Islam, distorting it’s true message, disrespecting dead bodies and even mutating bodies of the dead people!
Sahih Muslim: It is narrated on the authority of Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah: there passed a bier and the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) stood up for it and we also stood up along with him. We said: Messenger of Allah, that was the bier of a Jewess. Upon this he remarked: Verily, death is a matter of consternation, so whenever you come across a bier stand up. (Book 004, Hadith 2095)
Sahih Muslim: It is narrated on the authority of Ibn Abu Laila that while Qais b. Sa’d and Sahl b. Hunaif were both in Qadislyya a bier passed by them and they both stood up. they were told that it was the bier of one of thepeople of the land (non-Muslim). they said that a bier passed before the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) and he stood up. He was told that he (the dead man) was a Jew. Upon this he remarked: Was he not a human being or did he not have a soul? And in the hadith narrated by ‘Amr b. Murra with the same chain of transmitters, (the words) are:” there passed a bier before us.” (Book 004, Hadith 2098)
Wa Salamun alal Mursaleen walhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim
Today so many people from east to west especially people who are following other faiths, misunderstanding Islam, because they are seeing some Muslim named people causing destruction and tribulations!.
The truth is, all these ideologies that spread hatred and mischief coming from Satan. Islam is the religion of Peace and Safety. Not a religion of distress and destruction.
So people of the other faith must know what is the difference between Islam and those so called groups who claim they represent Islam.
Muslims must know and follow the correct creed of Islam. So that they may not get fooled by Satan and those agents of Satan!
Who has more right and absolute authority to say who is believer and who is unbeliever?. Of course the full right and absolute authority belongs to Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), since you cannot hear the voice of God!
So what did Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) say about believers and unbelievers?
1- It was narrated that Anas Ibn Malik (R.A) said: The Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There are three things ,whoever attains them will find therein the sweetness of Faith: When Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, and His Messenger are dearer to him than all else;when he loves for the sake of Allah and hate for the sake of Allah; when he prefer to be thrown into the fire rather than go back to the disbelief from which Allah has saved him” (Sahih Hadith, Sunan Nasa’i, Vol 6 PPage 16/17,Hadith 4990,4991,4992,Darussalam Publications.
So it is clear that there cannot be real faith without loving Allah and His Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam. Then how can they have faith, who says loving and praising Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) excessively is an act of shirk and bidha (polytheism and innovation)!?
How can someone attain sweetness of faith, if he do not love for the sake of Allah and do not hate for the sake of Allah?. How can someone hate the fellow Muslims and call them Mushrik and grave worshipper when he is a Muslim? How can a true Muslim associate himself with those who do not love Allah and His Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and slander pious scholars and Muslims?
WHO IS MUSLIM AND BELIEVER?:
“Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)
“Al Muslimu man salima-nnaasu min lisaanihi wa Yadihi, wal muminu man aminahu–nnaasu alaa dima’ihim wa amwaalihim” [Sahih (authentic) Hadith, Sunan Nasai 4998, Arabic-English Volume 6 ,Darussalam Publications)]
2- It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (R.A) that the Messenger of Allah (Swallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:“The Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hand the people are safe, and the believer is the one from whom the people’s lives and wealth are safe” (Sunan Nasai)
The “Naas” is used here, which means “People”. People of all faiths, color, creed, race and caste. So it is clear that a Muslim is the one who does not harm people with his tongue and hand, A Mumin (believer/one who is attained the faith) is he whom the people’s lives and wealth are safe.
This is the completion of the religion of Prophets.
The Ten Commandments says the same. You shall not murder and you shall not lie, you shall not steal others property.
Sahih Bukhari Book 88 Hadith 198 Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: I heard the Prophet saying, “Do not revert to disbelief after me by striking (cutting) the necks of one another.”
INVALIDITY OF CALLING OTHER MUSLIM GROUPS AS “DISBELIEVERS”, WITH THE CONTEXT OF THE ABOVE HADITHS:
3- It was narrated that Anas (R.A) said: The Messenger of Allah alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Whoever prays as we pray, turn to face the same Qibla as us, and eat our slaughtered animals, that is a Muslim (Sunan Nasai , Darussalam, Haidh number 4500)
So it is in appropriate to call some Muslims as mushrik/kaafir or grave worshiper with the fulfillment of the above three ahadith in the same book (Sunan Nasa’i).
Most Virtuous Islam:
It was narrated that Abu Musa (R.A) said: “I said O Messenger of Allah , whose Islam is most virtuous?’ He said: “The one from whose tongue and hand the Muslims are Safe”(Sahih).
So my brothers and sisters follow the most virtuous Muslims among you. It does not mean to stop speaking and warning against the evil that the sects violate in regards to the above hadiths.
Because Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam says: On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say, “Whoso- ever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.”[Muslim] 40 Hadith Nawawi, Sunan Nasai 5012
And note that Islam does not allow to counter evil with evil, that is not the way of Islam!.
BELIEVER LOVE THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE:
4-It was narrated that Anas (R.A) said: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “None of you has believed until I am dearer to him than his family ,his wealth and all the people”(Sunan Nasa’i, 5017 , also 5016,5018)
BELIEVER DO NOT HAVE JEALOSY, HATRED OR GREED:
5- It was narrated that Qatada (R.A) said: I heard Anas say:, (Humaid ibn Mas’dah said in his Hadith), the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “None of you has believed until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself”(Sahih, Sunan Nas’ai),
also in 40 Hadith Imam Nawawi.
BELIEVERS THE LOVERS OF IMAM ALI IBN ABI TALIB (R.A) AND AHLUL BAYTH:
6- It was narrated that Zirr said: Ali said: “The Unlettered Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) made a covenant with me, that none but a believer would love me, and none but a hypocrite would hate me”. (Sahih, Sunan Nasa’i 5021 ,Darussalam Publications, Vol 6 Page 36 also 5025)
BELIEVERS (MUMIN) ARE NOT HYPOCRITES- BUT ARE GUIDED WITH GUIDES (IMAMS):
7-Quran 4:49 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you.
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “The signs of hypocrites are three: When he speaks, he lies; when he makes a promise he breaks it; and when he is entrusted with something, he betrays t(that trust).” [Sahih ,Sunan Nasa’i 5024) also 5026: “whoever has one of this (traits) then a trait of hypocrisy has not ceased him, until he leaves it”.
It was narrated from Ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: ” The parable of the hypocrite is that of a sheep, that hesitate between two flocks., sometimes following one and sometimes following another, not knowing which to follow.” (Sahih, Sunan Nasa’i 5040)
THE VISIBLE ATTRIBUTES OF A BELIEVER AND UNBELIEVER:
The believers and unbelievers have some attributes that can be recognized. The believer (Mumin) whose spirit shine forth with the light of Allah.
8- Haristh bin Wahb narrated that the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam): “Shall I not tell you about the people of Paradise?. Every weak and oppressed one. Shall I not tell you the people of Hell?. Every harsh, haughty and arrogant one” (Sahih, Sunan Ibn Majah Volume 5 Hadith 4116, Darussalam Publications)
This Hadith has co-relating description in it. The people of hell oppress and weaken the Muslims for example by slandering and accusing shirk and kufr on them.
THE NATURE OF MUMIN:
9– It was narrated from Asma Bint Yazid that she heard the Messenger of Allah (swalla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) say: “Shall I not tell you the best of you?”. They said: “Yes, O Messenger of Allah”. He said: “The best of you are those who , when they are seen, Allah the Mighty, the Majestic , is remembered” (Hasan) Sunan Ibn Majah 4119, Darussalam Publications)
Only Awliya Allah (Friends of Allah and the way of Sufi Shaykhs) perfected the Islamic ethics, morals and manners, and taking the middle path as a middle nation.
Any other sects you look, they have malice against Awliya Allah, or malice against some Sahaba or malice against some ahlul bayth or malice against some pious scholars.
Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah-The Madhab following Sufi creed always stayed on the straight path according to the Quran and Sunnah, as we read above.
Sahih Bukhari Book 77 Hadith 595 Narrated Imran bin Husain: A man said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Can the people of Paradise be known (differentiated) from the people of the Fire; The Prophet replied, “Yes.” The man said, “Why do people (try to) do (good) deeds?” The Prophet said, “Everyone will do the deeds for which he has been created to do or he will do those deeds which will be made easy for him to do.” (i.e. everybody will find easy to do such deeds as will lead him to his destined place for which he has been created).
So this sufficient for those who have some knowledge in Islam, to understand the meaning of Believers and unbelievers.
Our Shaykh Sahibu Saif Waliyullahi Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) explaining in a question and answer section. When I listen to Shaykh’s sohbets some Ahadith came to my heart, then i was inspired to write an article to explain the words of our Shaykh in detail for those who want proof from Quran and Sunnah.
We can see the Shaykh’s words are 100% Haqq according to the Quran and Hadith mentioned in this post.
Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Alaa Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim
There is no Islam without Tariqah(Spirituality) and there is no Tariqah without Islam (Submission).
To succeed in the Path of Spirituality (Sufism/Tasawwuf) one must observe the following: – Respect all Prophets and All Companions -Respect Parents of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) -Love and respect for ahlul Bayt (Descendants of Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam) -Respect the Khalifas of Muslims, the Imams and their creed. -Respect all Saints of God, always remember that only a few Awliya Allah are known to the people. Your Shaykh may be one of them, but extreme love for your shaykh should not cause you to disrespect others even though there may be disagreements among the Shaykhs and Saints. (Remember the incident between Imam Ali and Ayesha R.A ,the incident between Hidr and Musa (peace be upon them all)
You might be a follower of one of them, but you cannot cause malice against another, if you are really a person of ahl zikr (Sufi tariqah) then that Zikr must bring you to understand that Allah and His Prophet (alaihisalathu wa salama) is above all Awliya Allah and all Ahlul Bayth. So do not interfere without authority. – Love and Respect Parents -Respect fellow Muslim brothers. – Have best morals and manners with all people and treat every creations of Allah according to the Traditions of Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam.
– Fulfill the needs of Poor Orphan, destitute and needy.
SOME VERSES IN QURAN AND AHADITH RELATED TO THE ABOVE STATEMENT:
Quran Chapter 107 :
Seest thou one who denies the Judgment (to come)?
Then such is the (man) who repulses the orphan (with harshness),
And encourages not the feeding of the indigent.
So woe to the worshippers
Who are neglectful of their prayers,
Those who (want but) to be seen (of men),
But refuse (to supply) (even) neighbourly needs
42:23 Declare [O’ Muhammad]: “I ask you of no recompense for my toil except the love for my kin (family).” And the one who earns good, We shall expand it for him. Verily Allah is oft‑forgiving and appreciates good works.
On the authority of Abu Dharr Jundub ibn Junadah, and Abu Abdur-Rahman Muadh bin Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:Have taqwa (fear) of Allah wherever you may be, and follow up a bad deed with a good deed which will wipe it out, and behave well towards the people. It was related by at-Tirmidhi, who said it was a hasan (good) hadeeth, and in some copies it is stated to be a hasan saheeh hadeeth.(40 Hadith Imam Nawawi)
On the authority of Tameem ibn Aus ad-Daree (ra):The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The deen (religion) is naseehah (advice, sincerity).” We said, “To whom?” He (ﷺ) said, “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.” [Muslim]
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day speak good, or keep silent; and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his neighbour; and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his guest. [Al-Bukhari] [Muslim ] 40 Hadith
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Verily Allah ta’ala has said: ‘Whosoever shows enmity to a wali (friend) of Mine, then I have declared war against him. And My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved to Me than the religious duties I have obligated upon him. And My servant continues to draw near to me with nafil (supererogatory) deeds until I Love him. When I Love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, and his sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to seek refuge with Me, I would surely grant him refuge.’ ” [Al-Bukhari] 40 Hadith Nawawi

‘O Children of Abdul Muttalib, I asked Allah three things for you; that He keeps your hearts steadfast (upon Islam); that He teaches the Deen to your ignorant and illiterate and guides your astray, and that He make you kind, generous and affectionate to one another. So if a man prays, standing between the Rukn and Maqaam, and fasts but dies with malice for the Household of Muhammad he has entered Hell.’ [Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 11, Page 142, Hadith 11412 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 3, Page 162, Hadith 4712]

Tabarani narrates from Imam Hasan bin Ali that he said to Muaawiyya bin Khudayj:

Page 203, Hadith 4426]

Ihya al-Mayyit bi Fadhai’l Ahl al-Bayt Alaihim ar-Ridwan
by Imam Abd ar-RaHman Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti Radiyallahu Ta’ala anhu)
The Prophet (J) said, “All of a Muslim is prohibited for another Muslim”
Allāh has made the Muslim sacred. And the meaning of “All of a Muslim” is “His blood,
his wealth and his honour”
Allāh said in the Qur’ān:
O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some
suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one
another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his
dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting).
And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts
repentance, Most Merciful. [Surah Al-Hujurāt 49:12]
And the Prophet (J) said,
“Do you know what al-gheeba is?” They said, “Allah and His Messenger
know best.” He said, “To make mention of your brother with that which
he dislikes.” They said, “How about if my brother actually has what I have
said about him?” He said, “If he has what you have said about him, then
you have committed gheeba..”
Because it is not permissible for you to speak about the people,
“..and if not, then you have committed slander.”
ADAB TO THE MOST HOLIEST PLACES:
Bismillahi Rahmani Rahheem.
Houses of Faith and Wisdom.
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
We are living in the strange days. So called Sufis ,Shaykhs this and that nonsense people, they don’t have respect for this month nor for the House of Allah (Ka’aba Shareef).
I am ashamed to see some so called Sufis taking Selfies at the House of Allah and posting it on Facebook. Good is good be it from whoever, bad is bad , be it from whoever of us.
So today, the corrupt rulers building hotels and resorts near Holy Masjids, and the people going there for picnic! , So “the rulers and leaders are worst of them (Hadith”
They turned the places of worship into amusement places with all nasty things and nasty activities!
Kaba is the place where Prophets, Eminent Saints, Jinns , Angels all come to worship and glorify Allah, since the time Adam (A.S) Built it’s foundation to Sacrifice and Worship for Allah Almighty.
It was only given to Dawud (A.S) and Solomon (A.S) an Israelite Pilgrim and Worship place at Mount in Jerusalem. But the Oldest was Kaba in Makkah, so Kaba was venerated by all nations, both believers and unbelievers.
So a believer who is in true God conscious , he will tremble when approaching Kaba, the House of Allah.
Quran says: 8:2 Believers are only they whose hearts tremble with awe whenever God is mentioned, and whose faith is strengthened whenever His messages are conveyed unto them, and who in their Sustainer place their trust –
So we have today, “Shaykh like” Shaykhs, “Sufi like” Sufis, “Zikr like” Zikr, “Sohbet Like” Sohbet, “love like” love, “Food like” food, “Islam like” Islam, everything an outward show off! and Display.
So we must wake up!, “Be Rabbani” , there is no way out from all these mess and filth that is emerging from all this groups and sects!
And if this is the condition of Sufi named people, then I am not looking at the other groups at all!
So Sufism is no more with people, it is only with the hidden Saints. They are hidden, today people who go to Sufi Shaykhs, are given only the “Zikr Sohbet and regular obligatory duties (like salah, fasting etc)
This are practiced by non-Sufis as well. There is no one today in the modern world, who can comprehend and nourish with Tasawwuf knowledge.
The Saints have closed most spiritual fountains, because those orders need high Adab and high level observance of Shariah and Sunnah traditions.
As for Naqshbandi order, it is given to only those chosen saints who are appointed by Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam to receive it.
For others, they may fulfill the obligation to follow a Shaykh in life, and observe Sunnah and Shariah duties as much as they can.
So many coming out with titles of Shaykh, Khalifa etc!
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S) did not appoint so many to be a Shaykh of Tasawwuf.
But there are Shaykhs and Khalifas, whose duty is limited to giving bayat, doing and establishing zikr and sohbet and to give permission to others to do the above.
When you know truth, you know where you stand,and Humble Yourself in the Presence of Most High LORD. And keep proper respect and manners in HIS Divine Presence. And His Divine Presence is Everywhere.
So you know where to be in the MOST ADAB!
Quran 2:19….But Allah is ever round the rejecters of Faith!
You have a big fake Adab (discipline) in your Shaykhs dergah, in his house, in his land, but how come you forgetting that Adab or not making a higher adab in the House of Allah?
It is the Sign that you are still bound by your ego!, your ego is still your god, you have to get rid of many ilahs (deities), you must wake up!
I am not pointing to anyone, since last 2 years I am watching, some shaykhs and people taking selfies and photos turning their back facing Kaba!!!!!
Even if you live 5000 miles away from Kaba, you are forbidden to turn your back against Kaba while sitting in Toilet!
This is never an Adab, and you coming to teach me what is Adab?
Your adab with your Shaykh is only an ego made Adab, not an Adab for the sake of Allah according to Quran and Sunnah! , if the Adab is according to the Book of Allah and for the sake of Allah, then there will be a greatest degree of Adab coming from you at the House of Allah!
So Instead of having an “Edep Ya Hu” Sticker on the Walls , we must put it in our hearts and hang on our necks with a bell, so it remind us something most needed!
You can only fool yourself and those who follow you with your fake Khilafat and fake Tariqath you claim you possess.
I am not calling anyone to myself, Obey Allah and Obey Messenger, Love Allah, Love the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam, love Awliya Allah and Ahlul Bayth,Surrender to the Truth.
If you do not know who is “Awliya and Ahlul Bayth”, you can still respect them as “a Muslim Brother/Sister”, but today people attribute “Wilayath and Qutubaniyyath” to anyone they feels like.
May Allah Support the Siddiqin and Saliheen,ameen.
