Stale Knowledge and 21st Century scholarship and leadership of Islam!

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ala Aali sayyidina Muhammadin wa sallim

Our Shaykh, Sahibul Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) saying about stale knowledge/taking knowledge of Islam from non-traditional sources such as universities and corrupt scholars!

 

and

 

Today, stale knowledge is spreading in the name of Islam, wrong ideologies and advises are circulated in Facebook and Whatsapp and people are fooled to believe in such fake knowledge!

Below is the example for how the stale knowledge about Islam is spread in the social media by those who claim to be scholars of Islam and holding some kind of leadership among Muslims

This is not attack or expose anyone. But to show the world the reality of 21st century scholarship, to make them reflect on it and understand.  And I ask those scholars who share this type of knowledge to understand the danger of what they are doing in the name of Islam and to come back to the straight path and to follow those who are bestowed with the Favour of Allah (Quran 1:7) to come back to the Ulool amri (Quran 4:59) , ulool ilmi (Quran 3:18) and ulool albaab (Quran 3:7) !

FALSE STATEMENT FROM 21ST CENTURY  MUSLIM IMAMS ON AN ARTICLE IN THE NEWS:

IRONY OF THE MUSLIM WORLD:

Muslims post about Real Islamic state:
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/ireland/10888707/Ireland-leads-the-world-in-Islamic-values-as-Muslim-states-lag.html

What a Great research, slap on the faces of Islamic countries head of state 

Subject: Ranking of true Islamic countries

How Islamic are the Islamic Countries

A study conducted by Prof. Hussain Askari of George Washington University entitled “How Islamic are the Islamic Countries” showed that most of the countries that apply Islamic Principles in their daily lives are not ones that are traditionally Muslim.
New Zealand ranked 1st, Luxembourg 2nd,
Ireland 3rd,
Iceland 4th,
Finland 5th,
Denmark 6th
Canada 7th.
Malaysia 38th,
Kuwait 48th,
Bahrain 64th
and the surprise
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ranked 131st.

The study, published in the Global Economy Journal might be shocking to most of us but when we look around us and see the reality of the situation, we find that the results of the study are accurate and true.

As Muslims we seem to care only about performing religious Obligations/Rituals/Sunnah (prayer, fasting, niqab, beards, etc), reading the Qur’an and the Hadiths, but we don’t practice what we espouse. We listen to religious lessons and sermons more than the other people on the face of the earth, but we are still not the best of Nations. In the last 60 years, we have listened to 3,000 Friday sermons.

 

A Chinese merchant once said: “Muslim merchants come to me and ask me to put fake international labels and brands on their goods. When I invite them to eat, they refuse because the food is not Halal. So it is Halal for them to sell fake goods?”

A Japanese Muslim said: “I traveled to the West and saw Islam in practice applied in the daily life of non-Muslims. I traveled to the East, I saw Islam but did not see any Muslims. I thank Allah I knew Islam before I knew how Muslims act.”

Religion should not be reduced to Prayer and Fasting. It is a way of life and it is about how we treat others.

Performing a religious obligation is up to you and it is something between you and Allah. However, good ethics is something between you and other people. In other words, if we do not put Islamic ethics into action and practice, corruption will become rampant and disgrace will be our future.

We should not judge a person based on how he performs religious obligations for he might be a hypocrite.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Verily, the bankrupt of my nation are those who come on the Day of Resurrection with prayers, fasting and charity, but also with insults, slander, consuming wealth, shedding and beating others.”

I believe Islam (external aspect of faith) is incomplete without Imaan (internal aspect of faith) and Ihsaan (social aspect of faith). Ponder, understand and realize this.

Lord Bernard Shaw is said to have said:

Islam is the best religion and Muslims are the worst followers.

******END OF THE ARTICLE BY THE POSTMAN******

A REVIEW OF  THE ABOVE STATEMENT BY THE RABBANI WAY:

This post was copied from a Muslim group’s leader’s profile, who might have shared it from someone else.

This post itself prove that the author is a hypocrite!

And those who shared this posts are spiritually blind!

Because this post twists two places.

FALSE SCHOLARS ABOUT WHOM THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PEACE AND BLESSINGS OF ALLAH BE UPON HIM) WARNED!

1- Does Islam permit slapping on the face?

The postman advise righteousness to the leaders of the Muslim countries and forgetting it in his own life. He is saying he want to slap on the face of Muslim leaders for not following Islam properly and ignoring to follow Islam in his own life.

Quran 2:44 Do you order righteousness of the people and forget yourselves while you recite the Scripture? Then will you not reason?

Quran 61:2-3 O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do? Great is hatred in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do

SLAPPING THE FACE OF ENEMIES IS FORBIDDEN IN ISLAM: SO THE CONTEXT HOW CAN SOMEONE ADVOCATE ISLAM TO THE WORLD PREACH TO SLAP ON THE FACE OF THE MUSLIM LEADERS WHO ARE NOT EVEN ENEMIES!

Sahih Muslim: 6321.
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: When any one of you fights with his brother he should avoid striking at the face.

HADITH 6325.
This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Abu Huraira and in the hadith transmitted on the authority of Ibn Hatim Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) is reported to have said: When any one of you fights with his brother, he should avoid his face for Allah created Adam in His own image.

Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) said, “If one of you were to hit, he should avoid the face…” Musnad Ahmad]

There are many Ahadith (narrations) about prohibition of slapping or hitting one’s face!

SO THE POST MAN PRETENDING TO COMMAND GOOD ACCORDING TO HIS EGO:
Will he successful in his efforts? ‘
Quran 25:43 Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?

Quran 45:23 Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?

“Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma‘roof (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful” Aal ‘Imraan 3:104

“You (true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma‘roof (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allaah” Aal ‘Imraan 3:110

By advocating Slapping on the Face of another Muslim, The Postman is acting like a hypocrite :

Quran says: 33:1 “O Prophet (Muhammad)! Keep your duty to Allaah, and obey not the disbelievers and the hypocrites (i.e., do not follow their advice). Verily, Allaah is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise”

2- Ihsaan is social aspect?

The Postman lying about Ihsaan.

Ihsaan is not social aspects of religion. But a spiritual aspect. To worship Allah as you see him. (see Imam Nawawi 40 Hadith, NO:2) That is a spiritual state. A methodology of spiritual purification to enable a worshipper to Focus on the Divine Presence.
A perfect state of turning your face to the Face of your LORD who created and established heavens and earth.

This is not to be social. But to be ascetic, to practice Zuhd. To refrain from worldly matters (to refrain from socialising and to be In perfect remembrance of God)

It is trained in Islam as Sufism (the knowledge of Tazkiya -inner purification) which is related in the quran (Surah shams) and Hadith as purification of the heart and soul!

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) reminded us in the hadith of musnad ahmed that:
Abu Dhar said, “I was with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)) one day and I heard him saying: “There is something I fear for my Ummah (Nation) than the Dajjal (Antichrist) .” It was then that I became afraid, so I said: “Oh Rasool Allah! Which thing is that?” He (the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa Salam) said; “Misguided and astray scholars.”
[Musnad Ahmad (5/145) No. 21334 and 21335]

 

3- Muslims are the worst followers of Islam?

The Post man taking illogical route and says Muslims are the worst followers of Islam?. This statement is wrongly said!. The author should be focused on 21st century Muslims , rather than saying “Muslims”. When it is said “Muslims” are worst followers , that include all Prophets and all the Muslims in all generation. Such statement comes from very low esteem attitude. One Must specifically say, Muslims of today, Muslims of so and so group etc!

This Notes posted with the link is copied from A Salafi Imam’s Facebook Page, WHO MIGHT HAVE COPIED FROM SOMEONE ELSE. That’s called blindly following!

This type of book scholars say that sufis following pir (their shaikh) blindly. But they are not realising how blind they themselves are, by posting or sharing someone else’s post as great Islamic when it contradict basic principle of Islam, the advocating of good and forbidding of the evil doing!

Which below of the weakest of the faith!

HADITH 34
On the authority of Abu Saeed Al-Khurdari, who said: I heard the messenger of Allah say:
Whosoever of you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart; and that is the weakest of faith.”
related by Muslim. In 40 Hadith Nawawi 34

The Prophet alaihiswalathu wa Salam says, in the end of times,the leaders of the people will be worst of them!

Real scholars are the Heirs of the Prophets,who inherit the legacy of the Prophets from the prophets in the same way. They will not appear be with diploma and PhD of Islam. But with a spiritual lineage.

Scholars of books cannot forbid evil nor can they see the evil in their knowledge, or in the knowledge of others when they share it as a good stuff, despite of having a PhD or Diploma in Islam.
This is the reality of today’s world. Book scholarship fails spiritually and everyone is made to believe they are upon guidance by reading some religious books and taking a diploma or PhD in Islam/religion! .
