In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful

إِنَّمَا ذَٲلِكُمُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنُ يُخَوِّفُ أَوۡلِيَآءَهُ ۥ فَلَا تَخَافُوهُمۡ وَخَافُونِ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤۡمِنِينَ

Indeed It is only Satan that suggests to you the fear of his helpers, so fear them not, but fear Me, if you are (true) believers. {Surah Al-‘Imran 3:175}

It is the battle with Iblees, may Allah curse him and his party that has been the principal battle since the time the enemy of Allaah resolved to pursue Aadam and his offspring in all situations and at all times, coming to him from all directions and following him every minute, as Allaah The Lord of all Creation informed us: (Ibless) said: Allow me respite until the Day they raised up. Allaah said: You are of those given respite. (Iblees) said: because You have sent me astray I will sit against the (mankind) on Your Straight Path. Then I will come to them from in front of them and behind them, for their right and their left, and You will not find most of them thankful to You.

Ash-Shaytaan this announced this struggle as a fierce, murderous war, springing from his evil nature, arrogance and rancor toward mankind. He has sought the permission of Allaah to fight, and Allaah has granted His permission for a wisdom He knows. Thus ash-Shaytaan has come forth executing and deriding His slaves.

However, Allah has not left mankind devoid of any equipment, for he has given them Imam that which is a shield, remembrance of him (dhikr) as preparation and the seeking of protection of him (al-isti adhah) as a weapon. Allah has exposed the steps and methods taken by shaytan, so that if a person neglects his shield and weapon and falls short in recognizing the plots and plans of his enemy, then his enemy will have power over him – and there is no ability or power except from Allah. If the servant of Allah gives permission to his enemy, opens the door to his house for him, admits him therein and allows him to brandish the weapon on to fight with then he is alone to blame, and he should not blame anyone but himself. Truly it is by permission of Allan that a person once stated: ‘Die in grief, for you have no excuse’.

When Satan inflicts a person with his touch it is blinding, and it obstructs the vision, but fear of Allah along with contemplation and submission to Him enables the heart to become connected with Allah. This state arouses the heart from neglecting His guidance so that those with taqwa remember, and when they make remembrance of Allah their vision is opened and covering is removed so that they become clear sighted.

I therefore sought the guidance of Allaah in gathering the “Islamic equipment” that will overcome Shaytaan and his party. The result was this treatise, in which I have explained the Divine warning against the Shaytaan’s deception. I ask Allaah that it be a protection for the Believers against the plots of Shaytaan and the deceptions of Iblees. I hope from any earnestly concerned brother that if he sees any mistakes or shortcomings in this book he will advise me, for indeed Allah has made sincere advise an act of worship for he who, intention is pure.

Detailed discussion of ‘sihr’ in Islam. Includes:

* Definition
* Evidence of the existence of sihr
* Categories of sihr
* How a ‘sahir’ brings about a jinn
* Punishment under Islamic law
* How to treat sahir
* Treatment of sahir
* Treatment of al-ayn (the ‘evil eye”)
* And much more.

The Author has extensively relied on Classical Scholars such as Al-Layth, Al-Azhari, Ibn Mandhur, Ibn Faris, Fakhr Ar-Razi, Ibn Qudama Al-Maqdisi,, Ibn Al-Qayyim and Many Others for his references

We often hear about cases of lunacy, constant headaches and stomach aches, insomnia, lethargy, hearing voices, sexual inability, sterility, frigidity, shattered marriages, woman’s continuous bleeding; and we often tend to have the undemanding answer that ‘it is Allah (SWT), or, as the ignorant would put it, ‘it is nature.’ Certainly, it is undisputable that anything in the Heavens and the Earth is managed by Allah , but we should not discard that Allah (SWT) has also commanded us to consider the causes of events. It is high time that we stopped and considered for a moment that, besides normal causes, there is the evil force of Sihr, the Arabic equivalent to sorcery. The sorcerer and Satan work in partnership to provide an ‘intent-to-harm service’ to their client, in return for a mere pittance which they receive from those with weak personalities and from the wicked, who hold grudges against their Muslim brothers and sisters and who love to see them suffer under the effects of sorcery.

‘Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn. From the evil of what He has created. And from the evil of the utterly dark night when it comes. And from the evil of those who blow on knots. And from the evil of the envious when he envies.’
(The Noble Qur’an  Al-Falaq: 1-5) Continue reading

Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick

By Abdullah Hakim Quick. Contrary to what the title suggests, this lecture is not a discussion about the onslaught of the western ideologies against the position of the Muslim woman. In actuality, this presentation is about the internal war. This lecture is about the war zone that is alive behind the closed doors of the Muslim homes. Is their a problem with our home relationships? Is their a problem in our marriages? Is their a problem with how our educational institutions are structured today? These and other important questions are analyzed, commented on, and answered in this empowering presentation. Continue reading

Islamic Facts: Refuting Allegations Against Islam

Ever since its advent, Islam has been engaged in a continuous struggle against the repeated endeavours to obliterate the truth for which it stands. This struggle will continue until the world comes to an end, since the struggle between truth and falsehood and between virtue and sin is eternal and began with the creation of man and will continue as long as mankind inhabits the earth.

Islam is the final and conclusive Divine Faith revealed by God Almighty, and accordingly the last link or Divine communication from the heavens to the earth. As such Islam has been subjected to more false accusations than the previous religions since it came: ” in truth confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety”.(5/48) The allegations against Islam, since its advent and until the present day, have been repeatedly circulated, the only difference being the wording and the attempt to present them in a semblance of scientific diction. The scholars of Islam answered these allegations each according to his own thought and we do not belittle the efforts of those scholars.

The aim of this book is to present conclusive and verified proof regarding the most important allegations against Islam that have been raised and repeated in recent years especially in the age of the Internet. Accordingly, God Willing, in the very near future, these authentic proofs will be transmitted on the Internet, and thus we offer our modest contribution in dispelling all points of misunderstanding and misrepresentation regarding the Faith of Islam, its teachings, and its Prophet.

Non-Muslim Religious Celebrations & Ruling On Part Participating

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/non-muslim-religious-celebrations-and-ruling-on-part-participating.jpg

Sheikh Muhammad Salih al-Monajjid
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 57 | Size: 1 MB

The conflict between truth and falsehood is ongoing and will last as long as this world remains. The fact that some groups among the Ummah of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) are following the people of falsehood such as the Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, idol-worshippers and others, whilst a group is remaining steadfast to the truth despite the pressures, is all part of the decreed system of the universe. But this does not mean that we should give in and follow the ways of those who are astray, because the one who told us that this would inevitably happen also warned us against following this path, and he commanded us to adhere firmly to Islam no matter how many people deviate from it and no matter how strong they become. He told us that the blessed one is the one who adheres steadfastly to the truth no matter what the distractions, at a time when the one who does righteous deeds will earn the reward of fifty men whose deeds are like those of the Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them) – as was reported in the hadeeth of Abu Tha’labah al-Khushani (may Allaah be pleased with him).

Among the Ummah of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) there will be people who deviated from the truth and went towards falsehood, changing and altering things. Their punishment will be that they will be kept away from the Hawd (Cistern) whilst those who adhered to the Straight Path will come and drink from it. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“I will precede you to the Cistern, and men from among you will be brought to me, and when I stretch forth my hand to them, they will be pulled away. I will say, ‘O Lord! My followers!’ and it will be said:

‘You do not know what they innovated after you were gone.’” According to another report: “I will say: ‘May he be doomed, the one who changed (the religion) after I was gone.’” Continue reading

The Slicing Sword

The Slicing Sword Against The One Who Forms Allegiances With The Disbelievers And Takes Them As Supporters Instead Of Allah, His Messenger And The Believers. This book “The Slicing Sword” Represents the answers given by Shaykh Abd Allah al Bari al Ahdal to questions on the topic of Hijra (migration for the sake of Allah) and al-wala and al bara (loyalty to Allah and disavowal of the enemies of Allah.) The importance of this book lies in the fact that the situation that Shaykh was face with similar to our circumstances today which gives relevance to his answers. Aden was occupied by the British in 1873 and the author died around 1854. So his time was one in which the power of the Ottoman Khilafah was waning while the Western powers were on the rise. Therefore, this was a time when there were some Muslims who were replacing their pride in being Muslim and being subjects of Muslim rile with being subjects of Western occupiers and sailing under Western flags.

An Important Warning Against Riba [Usury] & Interest Transactions

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/an-important-warning-against-riba-and-interest-transactions.jpg

Abdullaziz Bin Abdullah Bin Baz

Important Warning Against Ribaa ( Usury and Interest ): This is an advice from the previous Grand Mufti in Saudi Arabia in regard to Riba (usury) transactions that have proliferated in the recent times through the numerous financial institutions that have been established throughout the world.

Publisher’s Note

This is a short rebuttal of a research written by Dr. Ibraahim bin Abdullah AnNaasir, in which he tried his best to show the permissibility of most types of Ribaa (usury and interest) transactions that have appeared in recent times in the numerous financial institutions of the world. Hence, we thought English speaking Muslims would benefit from this translated response by Shaikh Abdul-Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baz, one of the noted scholars of our time and a staunch supporter and defender of the Manhaj of the Righteous Predecessors (As-Salaf As-Saalih). Shaikh Ibn Baz’s response is a refutation of the misguided effort of Dr. Ibraahim An-Naasir to allow Ribaa transactions.

The Manhaj (way, method) of As-Salaf As-Saalih (meaning the Companions and the following two generations of Islam) has been blessed in our time by the presence of several noted scholars of Hadeeth and Islamic Jurisprudence (Filth). These scholars combine both vast knowledge in the religion and firm adherence to the Qur’an and the Sunnah according to the way the Salaf understood and implemented them. Shaikh Ibn Baz is one of these scholars and firmly advocates the Manhaj of the Salaf through his lectures, writings and rebuttals of misguided ideas and deviant opinions, such as this research. We ask Allah to reward our scholars and to raise high the flag of the Salaf and their Manhaj.

This short response by Shaikh Ibn Baz that asserts the strict prohibition of all types of Ribaa transactions comes at a time when several so-called scholars are issuing Fatwas (religious decrees) allowing some and even most types of Ribaa. These false, deviant and erroneous Fatwas are especially welcomed by some Muslim communities and individuals who live in non-Muslim countries and who often end up imitating the ways of the Kuffaar (disbelievers) in the societies in which they live. Such people quickly embrace the misguided Fatwas that allow Ribaa, because they think that these Fatwas legalize and justify their indulging in the various types and forms of Ribaa that exist in the present time. I ask Allah to benefit these Muslims and the rest of the Muslim Ummah (nation) with this rebuttal so that they all refrain from indulging in Ribaa, in particular, and in all that Allah has forbidden for them, in general. I also ask Allah to bless the efforts of our scholars who surely face tremendous challenges in recent times, often defending the religion of Allah and His stated limits on several fronts at the same time. They defend the religion against various kinds of attacks by the enemies of Islam and the innovators in the religion. In particular, I ask Allah to grant His best rewards to Shaikh Abdul Aziz bin Baz, who wrote this rebuttal, Shaikh Muhammad Nasir ud-Din AlAlbani, Shaikh Muhammad bin Salih AlUthaimin and the rest of the scholars in general who follow the Qur’an, the Sunnah and the understanding of the Salaf As-Saalih. Aameen. Continue reading
