Taalib ibn Tyson Al’Britaanee
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 17 | Size: 1 MB

The topic is on Istiqaamah : a topic which we all are in need of ; due to our slack and laziness we have with regards to our Deen (Religion.) Due to the importance of the topic, I don’t think that my Khutba even covered even half of the topic and even gave the topic its due right, due to the topic being lengthy. So I have just covered the surface of the topic and given quotes for those who want to further there studies on the subject. Like always, I try to mention the any Hadith in Arabic so that those who want to memorize can do so. This book is a compilation of some works of four of the greatest scholars of Islaam. Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya , Ibn Rajab al-Hanbalee , Hafidh Ibn Kathir. and most recently al Imaam Ibn Uthaymeen ( may Allaah have mercy on them all). Continue reading

Answers To “Born-Again” Preachers

Yusuf Estes
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 18 | Size: 1 MB

The simple beauty of understanding where people are coming from in their thinking and having proper knowledge of Islam and the methodology of explaining Islam (menhaj ad dawah), is demonstrated here to show how close some of the statements against Islam are to actually in fact verifying the proof that Islam is the only correct religion with Allah. These questions are from a man that Allah has been testing with belief in Christianity & Islam. The answers are provided from Today Islam’s Sheik Yusuf Estes. As we will see, many times the very objections and complaints that others have about Islam, can actually be used to support the correct teachings of Islam. The problem comes from the fact that all too often we do not know enough about what the people are meaning and not enough about our own religion. Notice the art of agreeing at the correct points and then bringing about a clear understanding in the other points without alienating the other person. Continue reading

[Ar-Rijal Al-Amlaq] The Giant Man

Husayn Ibn Mahmūd
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 49 | Size: 1 MB

Controversially this is the only known detailed biography of Mullah Omar in English. Little is known about the Taliban leader. “For history to be written and the Muslims bear witness for us that we were killed for the sake of Allāh, on our Islāmic fundamentals and everlasting beliefs, is better for us with Allāh, than history being written and the Muslims bearing witness against us, that we lived in health and blessing after we have changed our fundamentals and sacrificed the Banner of Jihād, and whoever thought that the Islāmic country will be blessed with dominance without trials and tests, then he is an ignorant one who does not know the biography of the Prophet, (PBUH).” “Amīr Al-Mu’minīn, Mullah Muhammad ‘Umar Mujāhid”.

Since the beginning of the events, I have been thinking of writing a journal on this unique man, but the many disasters and scarcity of sources, it did not happen. The discussion about this man is a discussion of sorrows, as the sound individuals are delighted to hear the biographies of great men that change the course of history with their stances and their actions.

We spoke about “The Lion of Islām, Abū Abdillāh Usāmah Ibn Muhammad Ibn ‘Awadh Ibn Lādin”, may Allāh preserve him. And we spoke about “The Lion of Khurāsān, Al- Mawlawī Jalāluddīn Haqqānī”, may Allāh preserve him. And we spoke about the “Shaykh of the Mujāhidīn and Reviver (Mujaddad) of the Fiqh of Jihād in the Religion, ‘Abdullāh ‘Azzām”, may Allāh have mercy on him and accept him amongst the martyrs. And we spoke about “The Sword of Islām Khattāb”, may Allāh have mercy on him and accept him amongst the martyrs. And today we have a meeting with a peak from the high peaks, which is similar in height to the mountains of Bāmīr, Sulaymān and Shāhiq, of the Hindikūsh. This man who wrote verses of forgotten honour for the Ummah, and extinct determination. So indeed, he is a school for the generations to learn the meaning of the Aqīdah of Allegiance and Disavowal (Al-Walā’ Wal-Barā’) from his honorable stances, and love for Allāh and hate for Allāh, and to study in his university, the meanings of the Eminence and Superiority of Faith (Īmān) which are is become clear in persisting upon the fundamentals and being proud of the Religion. I don’t know were to begin, as the many continuous events in the life of this man are more tan can be covered in a small amount of pages… And I wouldn’t know how to start, as the lines are similar and intertwined in a complicated way, so it is difficult to dismantle and edit them in order to look at them.

After looking into it for a long time, I thought I should write about the historical, social and Aqīdah background of the man, using his identification card, and from there will go back to him in an attempt to understand his personality and analyze his actions based on this background and based on his many stances and his rare few words.

Democracy: A Religion

Abu Muhammad Aasim al-Maqdisi
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 41 | Size: 1 MB

‘after having read the book entitled Democracy: A Religion -written in the Arabic language – by our brother in Islaam, Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, I felt a great need to inform the non-Arabic speaking Muslims of this dangerous disaster. The disaster that has polluted the minds, and the monotheism 1 and the doctrine of many of the believing people.

With regards to this clear cut form of disbelief, many of the disbelievers have been active in deceptive rhetoric, to try to prove this form of disbelief as not being a religion. I was pleased with the fact that our dear brother, Abu Muhammad al-Maqdesi, provided a comprehensive refutation of those who believe in the void constitutions and the false laws of democracy. Our dear brother also used many authentic evidences from the Qur’an and the Sunnah, with the addition of logical intellectual evidences, to prove his arguments – and thus write an essay which the mind could easily comprehend, without there being any contradictions or nonsensical statements.

I had searched for a long time to obtain a comprehensive refutation of the disbelievers innovation of democracy, and of the polytheistic parliamentary councils – and our dear Shaykh has provided this. I found all of these things in this valuable book, so I decided to translate the book into English, so that the rest of mankind who may not be able to comprehend Arabic, would be able to distinguish the Truth from falsehood, the guidance from the error, and to be an evidence against those who believe in democracy. All translations of the Qur’an that have been used were used from Al-Qur’an – a contemporary translation, by Ahmad Ali. I hope that Allah accepts this work for His sake, and all praise is due to Allah, the First and the Last.’

These are a selection of papers that the author authored just before the start of the polytheistic, legislative, parliamentary elections – at a time when people were becoming fascinated by democracy. Their fascination was arisen after the defenders of democracy and the defenders of other such false ideologies (who have no religion) defended democracy simply for the sake of it, and they mixed the falsehood with the Truth.

Sometimes they call democracy a freedom, or a ‘consultation’ (this term is explained further on). Sometimes they bring forth arguments that apparently make democracy a valid concept, and they use the story of the judgement of Yusuf (Yusuf) – peace be upon him – with the King as an example. Other times they use the judgement of the Negus as an example – simply to serve their own interests and motives, and to fulfil their own personal agendas. They distort the Truth with Falsehood, and mix the Light with the Darkness, and the Polytheism of democracy with the Monotheism of Islam. But we, with the help of Allah, replied to all of these fallacies, and showed that democracy is a religion. But it is not Allah’s religion.

Democracy is an obvious polytheism and thus a clear disbelief that Allah has warned us against, in His Book. And His Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa’sallam) attacked suchtaghut (false deities) throughout his life. Continue reading
