FAKE MUJTAHIDS AMONG THE LAITY

( معيار الاجتهاد والتقليد )

The Pitfalls of Ijtihad and Taqlid

by Shaikh Faaris ibn Faalih Al-Khazraji

رسالة إلى طلبة العلم سواء من طلبة الدراسات العليا أو خريجي كليات الشريعة أو المعاهد المفتوحة .

This is a message to the students of knowledge, whether they be in the highest levels of learning, outside of the universities of the Revealed Law or the open institutes.  

المجتهد من شروطه أن يكون عالمًا بآيات الأحكام ومواضعها ومعانيها وطرق الاستدلال بها ، وكذلك السنة وتمييز صحيحها عن ضعيفها في أقل الأحوال تقليد إمام في ذلك والناسخ والمنسوخ منها ، ومواطن الإجماع ، ثم العلم بأصول الفقه ، واللغة العربية بنحوها وصرفها وبلاغتها على الأقل .

The mujtahid has conditions and one of them is that he is a scholar of the ayat of judgement, their application, means and ways of extracting evidential affairs using them. And  likewise there is the Sunnah, differentiating the sahih from the da`if in the smallest of incidents in taqlid of an Imam in that, knowing the nasikh and mansukh of it, the places where Consensus is established. Then after this comes Usul ul-Fiqh, the Arabic language – its grammar and morphology – with its expression that is lost on all but a few.

سل نفسك هل أنت ممن امتلك آلة الاجتهاد وشروطه المختصرة الذكر آنفًا ، والمبسوطة في كتب أصول الفقه ؟!.

So ask yourself: Are you someone who has the tool of ijtihad? Do you have the conditions laid out briefly just moments ago that are laid out in detail in the books of Usul ul-Fiqh?

فإن كان جوابك : أنك لم تمتلك أدوات الاجتهاد وشروطه فأنت عامي مقلد قولًا واحدًا لا خلاف بين العلماء في ذلك مطلقًا .

So if your answer is no and you do not possess the tools of ijtihad and its condition, then you are a layman, making taqlid and this is one statement and there is no difference among the scholars in that at all.

أما قضية مجتهد مسألة :

Now there is one point that needs expression on the topic of the mujtahid.

فهي خلاف ما يفهمه العامي أنه يجوز له الاجتهاد في المسألة الواحدة دون   امتلاكه لشروط الاجتهاد وتوافرها فيه ، وهذا مما لا خلاف فيه أيضًا ، فمتى ما امتلك شروط الاجتهاد يجوز له ان يسمي نسفه مجتهد مسألة . حينها يمكن لك الاجتهاد

So on this point there is a difference of what the layman understands in that it is permitted for him to make ijtihad on the one principle without possessing the conditions of ijtihad and encompassing them. And this has no difference of opinion in it. So when he possesses the conditions of ijtihad in that area, he can permissibly call himself a mujtahid of a matter and at that time it is possible for you to make ijtihad.

.فمعيار الفرق بين الاجتهاد والتقليد

But the pitfall is the difference between ijtihad and taqlid.

ما قرره الأصوليون من شروط للاجتهاد ، وما سوى ذلك مزاعم لا صحة لها لا في الواقع وقد تكون في ذهن صاحبها .وليعلم أن دعاوى القدرة على الترجيح والنظر هي دعاوى فارغة من المحتوى خاوية لا حقيقة لها .

What the scholars of Usul have established from the conditions of ijtihad is well known and whatever is besides that represents claims that have no validity to them or reality and it is merely something in the mind of the carrier of such thoughts. So let it be know that the claims to be able to join between and examine evidences while not being a mujtahid are empty claims that are devoid of merit and have no reality to them.

وليحذر طالب العلم مهما حصَّل من ألقاب فإنها لن تشفع له يوم القيامة فقد حذرنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال القضاة ثلاثة : واحد في الجنة ، واثنان في النار ، فأما الذي في الجنة ، فرجل عرف الحق فقضى به ، ورجل عرف الحق ، فجار في الحكم ، فهو في النار ، ورجل قضى للناس على جهل فهو في النار » رواه عأبو داود.

Let the student of knowledge beware so that there does not result with him what has happened to others as there is no intercession for such a one on the Day of Resurrection. The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said, “There are three types of judges, one in the Paradise and two in the Fire. In the case of (1) the judge in the Paradise, he is a man that knows the truth and gives judgement by it. Then there is (2)a man who knows the truth but transgresses in the judgement and he is the Fire. And there is (3) a man who gives judgement for the people while ignorant and he is the Fire.” Collected by Imam Abu Dawud.

فأنظر نفسك بين هؤلاء وسلها أي الأقسام انا .

So look into yourself among all of the categories mentioned in the hadith and ask, “Which of these categories do I belong to?”

Why I Do Not Advocate Single Sex Child-Cattle Mills

Figure 1A: The point of state run, compulsory education.

The video itself should be self explanatory. This is why you are to educate your own children on the fundamentals of Islam, not boarding schools. You are to have your children around your family and family friends and not Child-Cattle Mills.

Look at the type of people produced under these types of circumstances.

 

The Residual Effect of Salafiyyah

Figure 1A: Imam Mohammed Ghanem (above), a real Imam of a local masjid, is forced to pick up the pieces from the mess Salafiyyah left.

This goes in line with what I have been saying for years about the John McEnroe form of Islam, but people insist on learning their own way. After Salafiyyah is removed from a people, one of the outcomes is a dislike for the symbols of the faith.

The reason is that these things have been forced and punishments have been implemented (even though there is no lashing or punishment listed in the Revealed Law for people who were not in the masjid or praying in public) for affairs that are not mandated with punishments and also upon those who are not responsible or even ignorant..

The “enjoining of the right and forbidding of the wrong” method Salafiyyah prides itself on produces robots and also thugs, so it is no strange thing that the people of Mosul (long known for producing hadith scholars, theologians, wandering preachers and great ascetics of history) can be pushed to the brink. Responses to Salafiyyah always produce hatred for the cult from people allowed to choose.

Remember the great theologian and hadith scholar Abu Ya`la Al-Mawsili. Such a wonderful city that made some great people that suffered such a difficult time.

I offer the following article below just for your perusal and reflection.

Imam Mohammed Ghanem was forbidden to conduct Friday prayers under Islamic State rule because he refused to pledge allegiance to the group

In recaptured areas of Mosul, the extreme interpretation of Islam that jihadists forced on the local population for more than two years has sparked a backlash against religious observance.

After the Islamic State group seized the city in June 2014, it made prayers compulsory for people who were outside their homes, banned smoking, mandated beards for men and veils for women, smashed artefacts it said were idolatrous, publicly executed homosexuals and cut off the hands of thieves.

The jihadists cast their efforts as enacting the true interpretation of Islam — an assertion that most Muslims reject — but for some people, rather than making them more religious as intended, IS extremism had the opposite effect.

The call to prayer sounds over a mosque’s loudspeakers in a recaptured area of Mosul, but a butcher named Omar continues working — something that would have been impossible under IS rule.

“Mosul is an Islamic city and most young people used to pray,” but IS was “forcing us… we had to go to the mosque against our will”, he said.

Before eastern Mosul was retaken from IS during the massive operation to recapture the northern city that was launched on October 17, shops had to close five times a day for prayers.

“One day, the boy who works with me received 35 lashes because he hadn’t been praying,” Omar said.

“Now, we are no longer obliged to close our stores… Whether we pray or not, the decision is ours.”

Imam Mohammed Ghanem, who was forbidden to conduct Friday prayers under IS rule because he refused to pledge allegiance to the group, said the jihadists sparked a backlash against religion.

“Now some people hate the time of prayer because IS forced them” to pray, Ghanem said.

– ‘Too much pressure’ –

“They reject these rules because they associate them with IS, even if they are in fact true Islamic precepts,” he said.

“Put too much pressure on something and it will explode. This is what’s happening now with the people: they want to live the way they want,” he said.

According to Ghanem, part of his work before IS seized Mosul was educating people about Islamic practices and correcting them if necessary.

“Now, we say nothing because they reject religious authority. If we tell them they are doing something wrong, they tell us that we are from IS,” he said.

In another area of eastern Mosul, where rain is accumulating in craters left by the fighting, Imam Fares Adel said he too has changed the way he interacts with the faithful.

“Now we are afraid to give advice to people because they feel uncomfortable with the religious clothing” worn by imams, said Adel.

The imam said he understands those residents who “reject Islam”, but thinks the situation will “gradually” return to normal.

“The number of people is gradually increasing and they will all come back once of the footprint of IS has disappeared,” said Adel.

In Ghanem’s mosque, latecomers have to pray outside.

Around 40 worshippers kneel near fruit and vegetable stands to pray, while hundreds are squeezed inside the mosque.

“The imam has a good mentality and he speaks well to us. More and more people are coming back” to the mosque, said 25-year-old resident Mohammed Ali.

Now, without the threat of IS reprisals, “they come because they choose to”.

 

 

When Fighting Salafiyyah…There will be Imbalances…

In the war between Salafiyyah and Muslim Orthodoxy (Ar. Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah), there will be imbalances. Salafiyyah, which are nothing more than the Khawarij, are a response to these imbalances.

Their atrocities produce further outrages from the laity of Muslim Orthodoxy who are furious and dismayed by their scholar killing, law breaking, pre-pubescent female/male/infant raping ways.

One such example is the case of Umm Hanadi, 39, a grandmother from Iraq.

After refusal to join the “minhaj of the prophets,” her family was killed, including her second husband not long after the first was murdered, leaving her a widow (may Allah bless the man who lifted these difficulties and became her second husband).

She has rightly taken up arms to defend herself, her children, her tribe and land;

but other things have happened that show she has also been shell shocked by the war. She has stated that she not only beheads the men from Salafiyyah, but she also burns the bodies and puts the heads in cooking pots.

Similar outrages were brought about by Ibrahim Basha, who upon witnessing atrocities from Salafiyyah was so enraged that he transgressed the normal bounds of the Revealed Law in retarding the advance of Salafiyyah;

similar things happened when it reared its’ head in Egypt, but always returning to the balanced way of the scholars is best.

Armed resistance to Salafiyyah when it is killing, protecting itself with the sword/weapons and isolating itself with the sword/arms is indeed COMPULSORY, but the rules given to us by our Lord must be adhered to along with the statements of His Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and the rulings of the successors of the prophets, peace be upon them, namely the authorities. 

Please read the article below and understand that more of these occurrences are sure to occur.

The Iraqi housewife who ‘cooked the heads’ of ISIS fighters

‘More wanted than the Prime Minister’

Um Hanadi is not new to this.
“I began fighting the terrorists in 2004, working with Iraqi security forces and the coalition,” she says. As a result, she attracted the wrath of what eventually became al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, which later morphed into ISIS.
“I received threats from the top leadership of ISIS, including from Abu Bakr (al-Baghdadi) himself,” she says, referring to ISIS’s self-declared caliph.
“But I refused.”
“I’m at the top of their most wanted list,” she brags, “even more than the Prime Minister.”
Um Hanadi ticks off the times they planted car bombs outside her home. “2006, 2009, 2010, three car bombs in 2013 and in 2014.”

Wahida Mohamed seen here in Shirqat, Iraq on Sept. 27, 2016.
Along the way, her first husband was killed in action. She remarried, but ISIS killed her second husband earlier this year. ISIS also killed her father and three brothers. They also killed, she added, her sheep, her dogs and her birds.
She narrowly escaped death as well.
“Six times they tried to assassinate me,” she says. “I have shrapnel in my head and legs, and my ribs were broken.”
She pulled back her headscarf to show her scars.
“But all that didn’t stop me from fighting,” she said.
Um Hanadi claims to have led her men in multiple battles against ISIS. General Jamaa Anad, the commander of ground forces in her native Salahuddin province, told me they had provided her group with vehicles and weapons.
General Anad, a short, compact, no-nonsense man of few words, simply says: “She lost her brothers and husbands as martyrs.”

‘Check out my Facebook page’

After listing all the attacks against her, and all the loved ones lost to ISIS, Um Hanadi said: “I fought them. I beheaded them. I cooked their heads, I burned their bodies.”
She made no excuses, nor attempted to rationalize this.
It was delivered as a boast, not a confession. “This is all documented,” she said. “You can see it on my Facebook page.”

So we checked. Among many pictures of her with her dead husbands, fighters and generals, there was a photo of her in the same black combat fatigues and headscarf holding what appeared to be a freshly severed head. Another showed two severed heads in a cooking pot.
In a third photograph, she is standing among partially-burned corpses. It’s impossible to verify whether the photos are authentic or Photoshopped, but we got the point.

Um Hanadi describes herself as a “rabat manzal” — a housewife. She denied media reports she was a hairdresser, although a photo on her Facebook page shows her without a headscarf, in what appears to be a hair salon.
She has two daughters, aged 22 and 20. They are trained and ready to fight, she says, but are busy at the moment taking care of their children.
When we finished the interview, Um Hanadi’s entourage prepared to board their pickup trucks. I walked up to one of the trucks, where three men sat in the front seat. One pulled out a hand grenade.
“This is for Daesh,” he said, using the derogatory term for ISIS.

“And so is this — to cut off their heads,” said the driver, pulling a long machete off the dashboard and brandishing it uncomfortably close to my face.

Salafiyyah and the Earthly Governments are Closer Than You Think

Take a look at this video and I ask that you reflect regarding the prophecies of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him in which he said that the Khawarij would be in the army of the False Messiah (as collected by Imam Ahmad in Al-Musnad, vol.6, pp. 348-349 hadith #6871 ). Then think about the fact that our scholars have made Consensus that Salafiyyah is the Khawarij theology

Remember that creed matters and this is what our scholars died defending.

SAUDI ARABIA COMPLAINS ABOUT ‘HOSTILITY’ TOWARDS REFUGEES, WHILE TAKING IN ZERO REFUGEES

As cited from Infowars

Kingdom decries “racist speech” directed at Muslim migrants

By Paul Joseph Watson

011215saudi

Saudi Arabia has complained to the United Nations about ‘hostility’ being shown towards Muslim “refugees” being accepted en masse by European countries, while the Saudi Kingdom itself has taken in precisely zero refugees.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia today expressed deep concern about the increasing hostile, racist and inhuman rhetoric against refugees in general, and Muslim refugees in particular,” states the message, which is directed at the UN General Assembly.

The text goes on to decry “racist speech” directed at the migrants, while also asserting that “fear from the risk of terrorist attacks” must not be allowed.

However, the message makes no promise on behalf of the Saudis to take any of the burden of accepting refugees, stating only that the kingdom will, “provide appropriate financial support and provide support to countries receiving refugees.”

The Saudis claim they have taken in 2.5 million Syrian refugees, although this is vehemently disputed by the likes of Amnesty International, who assert that none of the Gulf states – Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates – have taken in any refugees at all.

“The Gulf States have accepted zero refugees registered with the United Nations and administered through the U.N. resettlement program. They have accepted zero,” Geoffrey Mock, the Syrian country coordinator for AIUSA, told the Daily Caller recently.

Human Rights Watch concurs with Amnesty International that Saudi Arabia hasn’t taken in any refugees, with HRW’s deputy director Nadim Houry labeling the inaction “shameful”.

Although Saudi Arabia previously claimed it had taken in 500,000 Syrian refugees since 2011, rights groups point out that these people are not allowed to register as migrants. Many of them are also legal immigrants who moved there for work. In comparison, Lebanon has accepted 1.3 million refugees – more than a quarter of its population.

As we previously highlighted, while lecturing European countries about their treatment of refugees, Saudi Arabia has 100,000 air conditioned tents, including kitchen and bathroom facilities, that can house over 3 million people sitting empty.

The sprawling network of high quality tents are located in the city of Mina, spreading across a 20 square km valley, and are only used for five days of the year by Hajj pilgrims. As the website Amusing Planet reports, “For the rest of the year, Mina remains pretty much deserted.”

While refusing to take any refugees itself, Saudi Arabia has offered to build 200 mosques for the 500,000 migrants a year expected to pour into Germany, no doubt some of which will be used to preach an extremist brand of Islam – Wahhabism – that the Saudis have become notorious for exporting.
