Isn’t this that time?

It is reported that Al-Fudayl b. ‘Ayyâd – Allâh have mercy on him – said:
How will you be if you reach a time when you will see people who do not distinguish truth from falsehood, believer from unbeliever, trustworthy from treacherous, nor ignorant from knowledgeable, and neither recognize what is right nor censure what is wrong?

Ibn Battah, Al-Ibânah Al-Kubrâ 1:188.

After reporting this narration, Imâm Ibn Battah (d. 387H) said:

To Allâh we belong and to Him we will return! We have reached that time, we have heard this and have come to know most of it and witnessed it. If a man to whom Allâh has bestowed sound reasoning looks and thinks carefully and ponders the matter of Islâm and its people and treads the rightly guided path as regards to them, it will become clear to him that most people have turned back on their heals, deviated from the correct path, and turned away from  correct proof. Many people have started to like what they used to hate, allow what they used to forbid and recognize what they used to reject. And for sure – Allâh have mercy on you – this is not the [right] character of the Muslims, nor the behaviour of those who have insight into this religion, and neither of those who believe in it and are certain about it.

The Hypocrites of Today

It is always good to learn something from the religion of Allah (Azza wal Jall) and strive to educate yourself in matters of His Religion (Islaam) just like we very much involve ourselves in educating with worldly knowledge. The knowledge of this world will remain here in Dunya, it is the knowledge of Islaam, that strives, motivates a person to do things he can’t even imagine and Allah helps him to achieve it. It is this knowledge that is everlasting and will assist him/her in hereafter to go through the final stages of the trial of Akhirah (Hereafter). May Allah (Azza wal Jall) take an easy reckoning from us. Ameen.

The banner of Tawheed and Islaam has always been nourished by the black ink of Scholars and red ink of Martyrs and it will continue to do so till the day of resurrection. Bi’Iznillah.

May Allah make us among those. Ameen.

These are some timely narrations collected by Muhammad Musa Nasr in his book ‘al-Munafiqun’ (p. 95-98). They are all authentic.

1 – Jubayr bin Nufayr said:

“I went to visit Abu ad-Darda’ at his home in Homs, and I found him praying at his mosque. When he sat for the tashahhud, he began seeking refuge with Allah from hypocrisy. When he finished, I went to him and asked: “May Allah Forgive you, Aba ad-Darda’! What do you have to do with hypocrisy?”

He replied: “O Allah, Your Forgiveness! (he said this three times) Nobody who feels safe from tribulation will be safe from it! By Allah, a man can be tested for a single hour and turn back on his religion.””

2 – ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr said:

“There will come a time when people will gather in their mosques, and there won’t be a single believer in them.”

3 – al-Hasan said:

“The Hour will not come until each people will be overwhelmed by their hypocrites.”

4 – Hudhayfah said:

“The hypocrites among you today are worse than the hypocrites who lived at the time of the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم)!”

He was asked: “O Aba ‘Abdillah, how is this so?”

He replied: “They used to hide their hypocrisy. As for the ones today, they display it openly.”

And, these were the Sahaba (Companions) of Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) – the best generation that ever lived – and where do we stand in terms of our Nifaaq these days? Have we ever done our self-assessment in this regard and asked Allah to forgive us of our short comings and save us as well from such Nifaaq? None of us should consider ourselves safe from the disease of Nifaaq and should continuously ask Allah to make us steadfast and clean our heart from this disease.

If the Companions of Rasul Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) were not free from such trials and tribulation; what justification do we have make ourselves carefree while we live in an age where fitan (trials) are at their peak ?

May Allah keep us all safe from such Nifaaq and Fitan and keep us steadfast.

Allahumma Ameen.

A Person Will Be With Whom He Loves

Assalamualaykm WaRahmatuAllah

المرء مع من احب

A person will be with whom he loves. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Mulla Ali Qari (RH) states that the most common understanding for this hadith is that when a man loves those who are good and pious he will be raised with them on the day of resurrection, and if he loves those who are evil and corrupt he will be raised with these people on the day of resurrection.

This can be further seen in the hadith:

المرء على دين خليله

A person is upon the religion of his friend. (Tirmidhi)

It is narrated in Bukhari, on the authority of a large number of sahaba’s that a man came up to the Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi wassalam) and asked

“What do you say of a man who loves a certain group of people but cannot be of them?”

To this Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi wassalam) replied;

“A person will be with whom he loves”

By a certain group here the man meant those who were learned and pious that he loved these people but did not have the means to be amongst them.

Anas (RaziAllah Anhu) mentions in relation to this hadith;

“There was nothing which made us (sahaba’s) happier in this world than to hear this” (Muslim)

As they loved Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi wassalam) greatly, this hadith indicated that they would be with him the hereafter.

Some scholars have stated that this is a glad tiding of a good death for those who love the pious as they will be raised amongst them on the day of resurrection.

May Allah make us from those who are resurrected with the pious on the day of reckoning. Ameen.

It is the mercy of Allah (Azza wal Jall) that He lets you select the group to your liking and make you love them for the sake of Allah and even if you’ll not be able to make it towards them – In other words will not be able to make Hijrah – Allah (Azza wal Jall) because of your love and association towards them; because of them being pious and Allah fearing will make you resurrect with them. Subhan’Allah.

Has the time not come for us to recognize the Taifah-al-Mansoora and  love them for the sake of Allah Alone?

After making this clear the importance of association and love and how it can affect the Akhirah (Hereafter) of the person. I advice every Zaid Hamid supporter who defends, support, fight, live and die for him to reconsider your attitude and aptitude again. The question that should be asked without any pre-conceived ideas are.

1. How many lies of Zaid Hamid would you like to see refuted before you believe this person is a chain lier?
2. Do you want yourself to be with a lier on the Day of Judgment?
3. Do you want yourself to be with Yousuf Kazzab and cult because by defending Zaid Hamid, you defend Yousuf Kazzab as well, and even refrain from calling him Kazzab?
4. What answer will you give the Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi wassalam) when you’ll found under the Banner of Kazzab?
5. Do you want yourself to be enrolled with the enemies of Allah and His Messenger (sallalahu alayhi wassalam)  on the Day of Judgement?
6. Is the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu alayhi wassalam) more dear to you or Yousuf Kazzab, Zaid Hamid cult?

وَمَن يُطِعِ اللّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللّهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاء وَالصَّالِحِينَ وَحَسُنَ أُولَـئِكَ رَفِيقًا

“And whoever obeys Allah and His Noble Messenger (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) , will be with
those upon whom Allah has bestowed grace – that is, the Prophets and the truthful and the martyrs and the virtuous; and what excellent companions they are!” [Nisa 4:69]

May Allah resurrect us with them and make us love the Prophets, the truthful, the martyrs and the virtuous. Ameen.
