Staying in a Corrupt Society

A marja` was asked the following question:

As-Salaamu `Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,

I am a young man that has been residing in Spain for a quite a fear years. It is a longstanding custom in this land that when people meet and greet one another, the men and women shake hands and kiss each cheek of his or her friend once.

Upon my first coming to this land, I had only recently arrived when a Spanish woman came to greet me and kissed me on the side of the face. This was a cause for many things that came into my mind among the people. Whenever this happened, I did not have the time to explain to them why this should not be done and why I avoided it. The next time this form of greeting took place, I pulled my face away from her.

In fact, I used to delay the meeting and greeting with the women the first time and whenever I had an opportunity to explain to them about the matter I would do so. I explained that I will never great them in this fashion and even went into detail on why this was the case and that my religion does not permit me to do this act.

Naturally, I would like to make clear that my stopping this action is neither a cause for me to become arrogant nor to hold women in low rank. In fact, my position is the opposite. After I followed this way of understanding, I was able to lift this difficulty without it being a cause of them rebuking me or going away from me on account of my being Muslim.

This is also a means for them listening to me and I have a doubt in the legality of doing the first thing, i.e. the kissing on the cheek and that which I am currently doing. Which of these should I be doing in reality?

I hope that you can guide me to the right path and the correct understanding so that we might agree upon it and cooperate in the good.

 

The marja,` Imam `Abdur-Rahman Ash-Shami, may Allah preserve him, said the following:

It is impermissible to greet women in the way in which you mentioned in your letter. It is impermissible and should neither be done on one cheek nor on the other in the case of members of the opposite sex.[1]

The most important thing that could be mentioned is that it is compulsory for you to think about a way to leave from that society so that you do not fall under the ruling mentioned of people Allah said of them,

Those who the angels take in death while they are oppressing themselves they shall have the angels question them, “What was your state?” They shall respond, “We were weak in the land.” The angels shall reply, “Was not the Earth of Allah spacious enough so that you could have emigrated…”[2]

An exemption to this would only be if you were residing in the land under real necessity. In this case, the threat mentioned in the ayah would not apply to yourself. Let it be the case that you seek counsel in a trustworthy scholar – firm and wise in his knowledge and his religion – so you can take your next course of action. And may Allah pardon us and you! Amin.

[1] trans note: The Shaikh here is making note of the fact that men greeting eathother in this fashion is permitted as this is a common greeting among Arabs, Jews, Sicilians and the like and implies no immediate sexual intent.

[2] Surat un-Nisa,’ ayat 96-97

Wow…! So University has become that bad?

Please feel free to take a look at the following article from RT News.

The New Islam: How to Finance a Makkah Trip

Figure 1A: How prevalent is this phenomenon among Pakistani expats to the UAE?
Figure 1A: How prevalent is this phenomenon among Pakistani expats to the UAE?

Recently, a sixteen year old daughter had to be put in a trafficking shelter after her mother (who admits guilt) commanded her daughter to go into prostitution to fund a Hajj trip for her grandparents.

The Pakistani family arrived in Dubai six months ago and not long after quickly fell into debt and was unable to clear the funds.

This goes hand in hand with other Muslim groups of the New Islam who make no link between clean and wholesome wealth and the things that the wealth will be used for, i.e. the Hajj in this case. The fact that some people who mouth Islam as their religion could even contemplate this brings the following question: How common is this among Pakistani expats in the UAE? This reminds me only slightly of a Prostitutes for God documentary I saw but this was regarding Hindus.

If someone does not learn what is required of them by Allah and that He, Glorified and Exalted be He, is Holy and will not accept anything but what is wholesome and righteous, how could be expect the “practicing” or “religious” person to do anything but extreme things and attribute it to faith?

If Islam is what you make it and how you declare, then nothing is off the table, including your daughter.

 

Anglosphere Islam: When Muslim Activists are Ignorant of the Revealed Law…!

Figure 1A: Sarah Safi, Muslim activist that could have avoided this if she had adhered to the Revealed Law.
Figure 1A: Sarah Safi, Muslim activist that could have avoided this if she had adhered to the Revealed Law.

Muslim activists are on the march yet again, this time with a story about a woman who was told to leave a store on account of her not revealing her face. CAIR loves these and other types of cases as they seem so lopsided. Yet at the same time, they don’t bother to put things in the wider context. Some of these geniuses are so busy trying to neuter the Revealed Law that they missed the very principles within it that would indicate the foolishness of the whole fiasco.

Sarah Safi, 32, was told at the Gary, Indiana store that it was a high crime area and that unless she uncovered her face she would have to leave the store. When Safi meekly wondered aloud if she was going to have to leave, the attendant gave an affirmative reply. This left Safi to leave the store brokenhearted and looking for recompense.

Let’s forget the fact that Jaime, the attendant said that this is a high crime area, that these are unbelievers or any other number of mind-numbing arguments unbelievers might use. Let’s even forget the NAACP, CAIR, ADL, ACLU, ICNA and ISNA groups which really just leave one SOL in the end.

What is in the Revealed Law about this matter? What has the Lord, Blessed and Exalted be He in His Rank and Spendour, said about this matter? All of this chaos, fighting, tribulation and He has said nothing of the matter. There are no rulings of authorities? There are no statements from the jurists in this regard? What?!

Muslim women wearing complete hijab are refusing to reveal their faces for driving license photos, identification, court cases when giving evidence, airports, banks and now a convenience store. Has nothing been said? Here is the matter in full.

If there is something in the Revealed Law, then you in complete hijab are just as duty bound to observe it as the one who is not in full hijab. This issue has been brought about in many instances by yourselves and your ignorance of the Revealed Law that has been displayed. Let us look at circumstances mentioned by the legal scholars when it is permitted/mandated to uncover for the women in complete hijab.

DISPENSATIONS

Hajj/Umrah

If one has finished the rights of Hajj or Umrah (they are no longer in Ihram), they resume the niqab and gloves, but if not, they will have to wear an unattached hanging veil. When they see men coming close or passing by, they will have to veil. We will take that from the following text,

There is the hadith: Yahya related to me from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa that Fatima bint al-Mundhir, may Allah be pleased with her, said, “We used to veil our faces when we were in Ihram in the company of Asma bint Abi Bakr As-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with her.” [1]

As for the veiling while not in Ihram, Imam Ahmad mentioned the hadith from al-Hasan ibn Muslim from Safiyyah bint Shaibah that `A’ishah made tawaf while she was in niqab.[2]

Hospital

Imam Ahmad mentioned that it is permissible for a woman/man to reveal themselves to a doctor during emergency situations when needed.[3]

Identification/Testimony/transactions

Imam Muwaffaq ud-Din Ibn Qudamah, may Allah be pleased with him, explained in great depth,

“Imam Ahmad mentioned the same thing about this area as well. The basis of his understanding was the first three generations, which had taken two historical incidents into consideration. One was in the time of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, when he asked Sa`d, may Allah be pleased with him, to judge in the matter of a tribe. He testified against them by looking at them and they looked at him, face to face.

There was also an incident during the khilafah of `Uthman, may Allah be pleased with him, when a man was accused of theft. He was made to come to court and look at the people and they him. The same ruling applies for buying and selling when a man looks to the face and hands of a woman for identification, transactions or testimony as what happened with the woman in the case of Rifa`ah who came wearing green clothes as mentioned in the collection of Imam Abu Dawud.” [4]

Life/death

When the mother of the believers, `A’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her and separated from her camp and lost in the desert, she lifted her niqab as no one was around and she was searching for the way back to Madinah. Due to exhaustion, she fell asleep. When the companion Safwan adh-Dhakwani, who was sent to find her, found her sleeping and called her name, she woke up and lowered the niqab again to cover her face. [5]

Marriage proposals

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, once married a companion to a woman and he did not look at her face or hands before they were married. He asked the companion, “Have you seen her?” He replied no. The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Go look in her face, for indeed the women of Quraish have something in their eyes.” Collected by Imam Muslim in his Al Jami` us-Sahih and classified as authentic. We can see from this that it is permissible to show the face but not compulsory, as the companion had trust and married without evening seeing the bride.

Female believers have to stop disgracing the Revealed Law by putting things into it that are not of it and making strictures where none exist.  And we ask that Allah makes it easy for us to understand His Commands and implement them with goodness.

Anglosphere Islam: When I Decide to be “Practicing,” so do YOU!

Figure 1A: Najaf Khan. Accept me or be publicly flogged in the media.
Figure 1A: Najaf Khan. Accept me or be publicly flogged in the media.

CAIR, that great bastion of Muslim Brotherhood members with supporters bearing nome de guerres, has now jumped into the fray to “aid” a Muslim suffering “workplace discrimination.” This blushing damsel, complete with flowing headscarf and protruding bangs, introduces herself to us as Najaf Khan.

When you listen to her speak and watch the video that accompanies it, you imagine this an open and shut case. Well…until you actually do WATCH and LISTEN to the full story. Khan says that she came to work on Monday after having been selected for employment at the interview stage.

Her third day at work and she was already fired for wearing the headscarf. The “monster” of a boss (who must legitimately be compared to a Waffen SS officer and Muslims to Jews in Germany based on the “atmosphere”) told her that she needed to either take off the scarf or lose her job.

Left with no other choice but to stand for her faith, Najaf did the right thing…she refused and was taken to the door and shown out. And I thought only the Companions displayed this type of valour!

TAKBEER!

ALLAHU AKBAR! 

TAKBEER!

ALLAHU AKBAR! 

TAKBEER!

ALLAHU AKBAR! 

Oh, just a moment. I forgot. Najaf Khan was not “practicing” for some time in her life. and even came to the interview while in this “non-practicing” mode. This meant that the headscarf (with bangs on display) was not in use and she was not wearing her “practicing clothes.”

So at the interview and the first two days of work, there was no sign of the headscarf on Ms. Khan’s head. It would not be until the third day of work that she would show up with this covering. (Does this mean that she is “practicing” now?)

“Motherf…” now just a moment. Do not use profanity and lose your temper. I know. You’re thinking the same thing as me. With all this new information, it is a totally new game. And it assuredly is. Khan already knew that the Fair Oaks Dental Clinic had no policy for this at all.

Also keep in mind that the boss is not a member of the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. In fact, upon inspection of his last name, it is clear that there is some South East Asian blood coursing through his discriminatory veins.

Now if this was a case like that of Ms Naima Mnasri, then we could have understood. She wore hijab at the job interview, at the job and then finally at work up until the day that she was fired for wearing it. Now this is a type of discrimination.

In the case of Ms. Khan, no such thing is the case at all. CAIR is seeking to not only have her reinstated at the Dental Centre, but also damages and restitution for emotional distress and the like. WHAT?!

So then what on Earth is all of this about? Well, if you don’t do what the Brotherhood tells you, you are a target. This is the situation. Notice that the interviewer in the story even pressed her and Khan was forced to admit the reality of the situation, although this was initially off camera. There must be a book coming. I see a title…The Day the Earth Collapsed: One Girl’s Harrowing Story of Hate, Healing and then Redemption.

PT Barnum said it best, “There’s one born every minute.”

Anglosphere Islam: Freakball as Per Usual

Figure 1A: The Reverend Dr. Sherman Jackson, one of the "Spokesmen for Islam in the West."
Figure 1A: The Reverend Dr. Sherman Jackson, one of the “Spokesmen for Islam in the West.”
As I have said before, Muslims in the Anglosphere have a penchant for following far-left freaks of all types, whether they decide to be shariah hippies or any other freakball movement. Take a very good look at what is on display.

 Since when did the Lord, Blessed and Exalted be He, command any type of political partisanship other than being apolitical or aloof from earthly, fleshly, carnally minded rulers?! Keep in mind, I would be just as queasy if I saw Muslims at the RNC; but you know, I just know that this will not happen.  

Muslims keep associating and stay associated with freakball groups, so much so that it is predictable. In fact, if Muslim talking heads in the Angloshere associated with the far right, it would be a FIRST.  

In our latest helping, we have been shown Muslim representatives at the DNC. What on Earth are they doing there? A clip can be seen above of a supplication/prayer/genuflection being offered by Sherman Jackson. &nbsp

I have seen him designated as a “spokesman for Islam in the West,” but the screen behind him calls him a “reverend”.   Don’t worry, he doesn’t go as far as actually making dua for Hillary Clinton.  

 Still, it’s a very interesting web: why would he of all people (i.e. of all Muslim talking heads) be chosen to speak at the DNC? Could there be a clue in his job title?

 “Sherman Jackson is the King Faisal Chair in Islamic Thought and Culture and Professor of Religion and American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California.

 And why is King Faisal’s family backing in this election?
 
I thank Al-Hajj Mahdi Lock for bringing this matter to my attention as with so many bizarre and frightening things happening in the world, it becomes difficult to keep track.

I wonder if the Muslims that jump behind this will also jump behind everything that has happened so far, i.e. the killings, drone attacks, Libyan, Egyptian coups with an attempt on Syria and the onward advance of Salafiyyah

(hell, they’re already helping it along… so bring in the dancing girls and make it a state religion).  

 Only our Lord knows how much time remains before the End of Things

Anglosphere Islam: Sexual Ethics for Dummies

The following article should be ample reason why all Muslims should be suspicious of American/British islam and the illegitimate children it births. Please see the following article below and ask yourself: Are your children really safe at the masjid?

Mother who had been forced into an arranged marriage is jailed for filming herself having sex with her 14-year-old son and sending the clips to relatives in Pakistan

  • Vile mother filmed having sex with her teenage son in sick porn video
  • Clips sent to cousin in Pakistan who allegedly asked her to make film
  • She also sent her relative indecent images of her three-year-old daughter

A vile mother was jailed for five years today for filming home-made porn movies with her own schoolboy son.

The mother, 36, was filmed having sex with her 14-year-old son – and sent the mobile phone clips to a family member living abroad.

A court heard she made a video of her carrying out sex acts with the teenager – and also other images of her three-year-old daughter.

A vile mother was jailed for five years today at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court (pictured) for filming home-made porn movies with her own schoolboy son

Mr Kolvin said the woman, of St Mellons, Cardiff, told police in interview that she had agreed to video herself having sex with her son to please her cousin in Pakistan.

Her son, in a victim impact statement read to the court, said: ‘I feel upset and ashamed of what she did. She should not have done it but I miss her very much.’

Her elder daughter told the court: ‘I worry about my mum.’

Ruth Smith, defending, said her cultural background had made her particularly vulnerable and ‘highly suggestible’.

Recorder of Cardiff Judge Eleri Rees (pictured) called the sex offences ‘truly shocking’

She said the mother was forced to leave education at the age of 13 to work in the family business and into an ‘abusive and violent’ arranged marriage

Miss Smith said she had accepted the situation and ‘her lot in life’.

She said: ‘She appears to be a person that is very anxious to please and she will change accounts in order to satisfy what somebody is asking of her. She is highly suggestible of others.

‘She was subjected to abuse by her husband and that is something she has accepted as her lot in society.’

Miss Smith told Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court that social services had given her a stark choice – to leave her husband or lose her children.

‘She has lived her life within her culture as one that is expected of her – a devoted daughter and loving wife.

‘She has been subjected to significant abuse. That coupled with her suggestibility may have resulted in a vulnerable individual.

‘She was expected to do what she was told and she did not want to create conflict.

‘It is clear she is a lady who deeply loves her children despite these offences. She is worried about the future and what will happen to them.’

Recorder of Cardiff Judge Eleri Rees said: ‘These are truly shocking offences. Your duty was to your children. To that you failed in the gravest possible way.’

The woman admitted six counts including sexual activity with a family member, taking and distributing indecent images of a child reflecting 119 images and three movies.

She was jailed for a total of five years. She will have to sign as a sex offender for life and will be the subject of an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
