  4. Aapa, Its not a good enough explaination to answer the critics and leaves a lot to be desired. Do you have something else to add to this topic?
  5. The father of Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari, Maulana Adam (HA) said in his Majlis 2 nights ago: A dream was seen regarding the Shuhadaa'. The mother was dressed in green (Sign of Jannah and a great sign of glad tidings if colour green is seen in a dream), and all the three children were dressed in white (Another sign of Jannah and glad tidings if white colour is seen), and all of them were very happy, saying that today is our 'Eid. Hadhrat said their bodies may be here, all deceased and lifeless, but what is happening to them and their souls behind the scenes is something else. The purpose isn't their bodies. Their life in the hereafter has nothing to do with their bodies of this life (A temporary packaging, a container for where our souls are kept in this life), rather, whilst their bodies are kept here in this world, they and their souls are in the Aakhirah enjoying themselves for eternity. SubhaanAllah ...
  6. Advice to my “online” daughter! Introduction: Dear Daughter, Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh It seems like just yesterday when you were taking your first steps and trying to walk. You tried to stand and then fell down with a thump so many times but you kept trying and eventually you took your first steps. Alhumdolillah, I was proud of you then and I am proud of you now. My daughter, you have all grown up but the challenges you faced when you were learning to walk and the challenges you face now, remain. Their nature may have changed, their severity hasn’t. Yesterday when you fell on your back while trying to stand wasn’t anything major and you were able to stand again. Today, when you fall on your back it may not be so easy for you to get up and walk again because the injuries may be to your soul and to your Eeman; so watch out! My daughter, I bought you a phone and laptop for your personal use because I trust you will use them conscientiously and that Allah Ta'aala will guide you in your decisions when doing so, I still fear Shaytaan's meddling and fear for your innocence. You will forever be "my little daughter" and nothing will change that. No matter how many times I am told how you are all grown up now, as your father I will always be protective and look out for you. I can't help it so forgive the silliness of this old man! I love you and I care dearly about you. I was there when you were born, I called the Adhan in your ear, and I took you home on your first day; so, I can't help it... By Allah! I can't help but to look out for you! We may have some differences of opinion and Allah (SWT) has given you the right to an opinion and to exercise it. Despite our disagreements, I will NEVER stand in your way but I would want you to go about taking decisions the right way. Shura (consultation): My daughter, you have the right to make your decision but if you make those decisions based on the commandments of Allah (SWT) and the noble Sunnah of Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) then the Barakah and blessings of Allah (SWT) will be part of your decision and will enrich your life. [42:38] and those who have responded to their Lord (in submission to Him), and have established Salah, and whose affairs are (settled) with mutual consultation between them, and who spend out of what We have given to them, But in order to consult, you need to know who to consult with! My daughter, Allah (SWT) has commanded us to refer our matters to Scholars (Ulamah) and no aspect of our life as a Muslim is absolved from this commandment. [16:43] So, ask the people (having the knowledge) of the Reminder (the earlier Scriptures), if you do not know. You have trusted your father for so long and it is most appreciated but in order for you to move ahead in your Dunya and hereafter you need to learn to think for yourself. I won’t be around forever and I advise you to ascertain the credibility of the Ulamah and Mashaykh whom you consult. Not everyone who is active on an Islamic forum or has millions of hits on facebook or appears persuasive on youtube can be trusted. Not everyone who can write eloquently or speak fluently is trustworthy. Refer your matters to Ulamah and Mashaykh who are trusted by “other Ulamah and Mashaykh”. This Deen of Allah (SWT) was revealed upon Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) through the noble and trusted Sayyidina Gibrael (AS) and then it was transmitted to the Sahaba (RA) and then onwards until it has reached us. We have ensured that we have acquired it from noble Ulamah and Mashaykh, men and women of trustworthiness and Taqwa who were (and are) trusted in their times by notable, credible and authentic Ulamah and Mashaykh of our times. Facebook, twitter, youtube, WhatsApp Islamic forums don’t change the rules of seeking Deen. Sacred knowledge was in the hearts of men, then it moved into books, and the keys to these books are in the hands of scholars (rijal). This implies the necessity of acquiring knowledge from the people who master it. My daughter, know that authentic knowledge will be taken away by the passing of sincere Ulamah and Mashaykh and that misguided fools will take over in their place.These fools will be utterly misguided and they will misguide! Truly, Allah does not remove Sacred Knowledge by taking it out of servants, but rather by taking back the souls of Islamic scholars [in death], until, when He has not left a single scholar, the people take the ignorant as leaders, who are asked for and who give Islamic legal opinion without knowledge, misguided and misguiding [bukhari] My advice would be incomplete if I didn't leave you with the details of some Ulamah and Mashaykh who are trusted by other Ulamah and Mashaykh and whom you can contact for guidance. It is our duty as Muslims to propagate goodness. You should use your online skills to propagate and publicize information and Insha'Allah it will add to your treasure of rewards for the hereafter. Importantly, whoever finds this beneficial will remember you in their duas. 1 Shaykh (Mufti) Zubair Dudha (HA): Email him through the site or ring him on +44-(01924)450-422 between the hours of 17:00-19:00 Monday through Friday.

  8. May Allah (SWT) reward our Sister (Ameen). What I like about her is not only she wore the Niqaab but she has disappeared from the Media completely (Ahumdolillah) , she is from close to where my family lives and she doesn’t appear in the Masjids or media or nothing. Married and with her husband and kids, Job done! No one knows her in Florida state and she doesn't make speeches or nothing. People are still quoting her story from 6 years ago! She is happy with her modest life (Ahumdolillah)

  10. http://www.muftisays.com/blog/Muadh_Khan/3414_07-08-2013/a-real-life-story-for-all-married-muslimah-women.html A real life story for all married Muslimah women! This is the story of a well known Shaykh (HA) in UK. Shaykh is very ill and bed ridden for many years. It was narrated to me by Shaykh (HA) and his wife themselves otherwise I don’t think many people know about their background. Shaykh (HA) came to UK to complete his post graduate university education towards the end of 1960’s, while studying he got engaged to a young woman from a long line of distinguished Deobandi Ulamah & Madhaykh back home. Since it was anticipated that this girl will eventually move to UK parents ensured that she learned English and read as much material in English as possible. Aunty (HA) told me that in the 1960’s there wasn’t a lot of Islamic English material available but her father wrote to Darul-ulooms all over India/Pakistan and subscribed to all English magazines to ensure that she read them and was fluent in English. Since her father was a leading Deobandi Shaykh he ensured that his daughter read nothing except for Deobandi material even for practising English. She never left home and wore a Niqab but all efforts were made to ensure that she learned and practised as much as English as possible. She had no contact with men and had never taken her Niqab off in front of anyone. Meanwhile back in UK, the Shaykh (HA) was like another typical university Youngman in UK he liked movies and going out but never drank or had relationships with other woman. They married and she arrived in UK in Niqab. Straight after getting on the plane he asked her to remove her Niqab because they were heading to UK. She begged and cried but he would have none of it so she had no choice but to take her Niqab off in the plane, she begged not to have her Hijab removed so he let her wear a scarf as long as it was nice and colourful, presentable and professional. After arriving in London a few weeks later the new James Bond movie Dr No came to the cinemas so he told his wife to go with him to the Cinema to watch it. This is a woman whose father never had a Radio in the house, she cried and cried but he had none of it so both went to the Cinema to watch Dr No. Then he told her that she needs to brush up his English and the best way is to work! Aunty (HA) told me that she was so ashamed of men looking at her face that after he slept she would put her Musallah down and cry to Allah (SWT) to deliver her from her ordeal and make Astaghfaar thousands of times. Desperate for help she wrote to her father explaining in detail and asking for Mushwarah to apply for Khul because she couldn’t take the humiliation of bearing her face in public anymore. Her father wrote back that if he is praying 5 times daily (which he was) there are no grounds for Khul and although he is indulging in Fisq she should make dua, make Astaghfaar and give him Dawah with love and kindness to change him but if she did think that she needs to end the relationship then it’s her decision. He was a kind husband in every other way so she decided to be patient and started part time work. In the meantime she consigned herself to obeying her husband, watched movies, walked around London (without Niqab, worked) but continued to make Astaghfaar and continued to give Dawah to her husband. This lasted for a decade until he changed a little bit and grew his Beard a little longer. Kids came along so she used the excuse that she needs to look after the kids so quit her job, money was never the issue anyways. Another few years past until Shaykhul-Hadeeth (Maulana) Zakariyya Kandhalwi (RA) came to UK and then Darul-uloom Bury was established and again slowly he began to change. He decided on a whim to go to Madina and visit Shaykhul-Hadeeth (Maulana) Zakariyya Kandhalwi (RA), although she just had a baby and they couldn’t afford it she still went but they never got a chance to Shaykhul-Hadeeth (Maulana) Zakariyya Kandhalwi (RA). He changed some more. Two decades past and he now started to become regular in Tahajjud and his Adhkaar until Allah (SWT) blessed him so much that he surpassed many in the ranks of closeness to Allah (SWT). So in the end Aunty told me that she went through unbearable pain, anguish and ordeal but eventually Allah (SWT) changed her husband upon the Sunnah to such an extent and accepted his Tawbah to such a degree that people praise him but nobody knows about the tears which shed in the long nights asking Allah (SWT) to change the heart of her husband for nearly 2 decades!

  14. Start of Ramadhan 1434: Press Release Introduction: This is a synopsis of the findings of Moonsighting (UK), ICOP & ICOP-UK on the start of Ramadhan deliberately edited and simplified for common Muslims to understand and use to protect their acts of worship during the Holy Month of Ramadhan. Before proceeding further, we would like to inform the readers that ICOP is an International body comprising of over 400 members from all over the Muslim world including Saudi Arabia who research issues relating to moon sighting and make deliberate attempts to sight and coordinate naked eye sighting of the moon every month and not just the Holy month of Ramadhan and Dhul-Hijjah. You must understand and internalise this important distinction since it isn’t possible to attempt to coordinate naked eye sighting of Ramadhan moon without attempts to sight and coordinate sighting for every Islamic month. 1 Europe/UK: Free email, mobile alerts by Islamic Crescent Observation for the UK every month 2 Europe/UK: Wifaqul-Ulamah (UK) Body of Scholars coordinating and informing people about moon sighting 3 USA: Hilal Sighting Committee of America 3 South Africa: Moon sighting is announced via various means including Shaykh Ebrahim Bham (Twitter), Channel Islam International etc 4 Pakistan: Announced on local media and emails are sent out by a Yahoo group managed by Shaykh (Mufti) Sultan Alam (HA) who is the Head of Department of Astronomy Jamiatur Rasheed (Karachi, Pakistan) 5 India: Announced on local media and collected and reported on our site All of the sources above report on naked eye moon sighting for every Islamic month, they neither look at a calendar hanging on their wall (for months other then Ramadhan) nor spring into a frenzy of activity 1 day before Ramadhan and start discussing moon sighting. Many of the Scholars, brothers and sisters involved have over a decade of involvement in monthly moon sighting. Full investigative report from Moonsighting (UK) about Ramadhan 1434 in 3 languages: Years of experience and coordination has enabled thorough and impartial investigation into moon sighting for Ramadhan (1434) and presentation in 3 most commonly understood languages for Muslims, see below. 1 Ramadhan (1434) Moon sighting report (English) 2 Ramadhan (1434) Moon sighting report (Arabic) 3 Ramadhan (1434) Moon sighting report (Urdu) Full article here
  15. This is long but well worth reading, Masha.Allah Interview with the Wife of Shaykh al-Islam Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani (May Allah preserve him) (Reproduced, with minor editing, from ‘The Intellect’ magazine (published in Karachi, Pakistan), with direct permission from the Interviewee and Shaykh Mufti Taqi Usmani) Question: Shaykh Mufti Taqi Usmani has spent his entire life in the service of Islam with constant effort and hard work. To achieve so much Masha Allah, he must have a support system at home. Can you kindly share with us how you help him out? Wife of MTU: Since the very first day of our marriage, I decided – with the intention of earning reward – that I will take up all household responsibilities in a manner so that Shaykh can fully concentrate on the work of deen. This way, I [hope to] get a share in the reward of his religious efforts as well. To this end, I not only try to contribute to the religious environment of the house (e.g. by not involving him in vain conversations), but also give him no trouble regarding household affairs, ranging from arranging groceries to buying personal items such as clothes etc. I try to resolve all big and small household issues on my own; for example, getting a broken phone stand repaired. Even when the children were small, I would try to make sure that Shaykh is not disturbed by routine issues related to them. I would also like to mention here that I have been blessed by Allah Most High with one of the most considerate of spouses, who has always provided me with the best of worldly and religious environment at home. I feel total bliss, Al-hamdulillah. Question: Shaykh travels abroad very frequently. Did you get chances to travel with him? If yes, how do you keep yourself occupied when he is busy in official meetings / work etc? Wife of MTU: I travel very frequently with Shaykh. In fact, I have accompanied him on many foreign tours. Usually, as we board the plane, he begins work on his laptop and keeps working until the plane lands at the destination. In the meantime, I get myself busy in completing my daily recitations (ma’mulat/wird) during the course of the journey. At the hotel, Shaykh proceeds to his official engagements and I open up the Holy Qur’an for recitation, reading [also] the translation, etc. Actually, I love reading. At home, since one is busy with household affairs, one does not get enough time to read with concentration. So on these travels; I fulfill my desire of reading [with concentration]. Recently, I was trying to learn Arabic, so I would open up my Arabic books and try to study. When Shaykh would come to the room for lunch, I would show him about something I didn’t understand. I am not too fond of outings or shopping, so even with many ladies offering to show me around the town, I prefer to stay at the hotel and follow my routine. At Fajr time, Shaykh and I always go for a half hour walk together, no matter where we are. In the evening, even when I am at home, I complete my evening half hour walk on a treadmill while reciting at least one Juz of the Holy Qur’an. On foreign tours, after the official work has finished, Shaykh many times adds an extra day to the trip for my sake to show me different sites and places in the city. Question: When the children grow up, the ladies of the house get some extra time to spend as they like. How do you utilize that time and how to do you spend your average day? Wife of MTU: Every Thursday, I deliver a talk for the female teachers and staff of the Hira Foundation School [the hybrid school offering the Cambridge education system along with religious learning within Dar-ul-Uloom Karachi premises], where I read from Shaykh’s [book] Islahi Khutbat. I also frequently make surprise visits to the school to check up on its work. As far as my daily routine is concerned (which is aligned with that of Shaykh’s, to give him maximum comfort), it mostly goes like this: After Fajr, we go for a walk together; then we have breakfast at 7:30am. Shaykh then proceeds to his 8.00 to 10.00am class to teach Sahih al-Bukhari, while I get busy in household chores. He comes home at 10.00am, and until 12 noon works on his laptop [writing books, etc]. 12.00 to 2.00pm are his office hours, so he proceeds there. After Zuhr prayers, we have our lunch together at around 2.15pm, and then rest for half to one hours (till around 3.30pm). [From 3.30pm till Asr, he goes back to his office where teachers, students and others have an opportunity to consult with him]. Asr to Maghrib prayers is family time. Shaykh is very particular that we all sit together at this time and discuss any issues of interest. From Maghrib to Isha, he proceeds to do his own work e.g. if he is working on a book, then writing, researching for it etc. After dinner, we all sit down for 10-15 minutes, where Shaykh reads out from a book. The grandchildren must also attend this reading session. After this, he again gets back to work before retiring to bed at 12.00 midnight. Question: What needs to be done to further our work for the reformation efforts directed towards women? Wife of MTU: First of all, more and frequent lecture gatherings must be held for ladies, where discourses of our pious predecessors are read out. The more ladies listen to these, the more impact it would have; not only bringing about a gradual change in them, but they would also be able to positively impact their children and household. Secondly, our approach to reformation should not be an offensive or even direct one; we should not be scolding the other as it would only irritate the listener, and instead of accepting the good advice, she may become reactionary. We should indirectly try to make people understand about prevalent vices by frequently inviting them over to religious gatherings. As an example, if a lady is busy in rearing up children at home and is interested in da’wah work or feels pain at something that her next door neighbour might be doing incorrectly, she should take out just 15-20 minutes out of her schedule, invite her neighbour and another one or two ladies to her place for an informal gathering where she can read out a few pages from a book of a pious predecessor. In this way, the neighbour will get to know the correct approach in a subtle and indirect manner. Even though this effort seems insignificant, but it will, insha’ Allah, have a huge impact if done regularly over a period of time – just like trickling drops of water impact a hard rock over time. We as ladies should also remember to teach our children acts of Sunna and Prophetic (masnun) duas from a very young age. It will help develop their habit of following the Sunna, and we would be able to contribute towards their positive upbringing in a very meaningful manner. To make our advice to others more effective, it is always good to make dua first. Whenever I am to speak at any forum, I always offer two units of Salat al-Hajah (Prayer of Need) to make the effort beneficial for both myself and the listeners. Question: In these unsettling times where separations are rife, is there any particular advice [for women] that you consider important for a happy and successful marriage? Wife of MTU: One thing which I think is vital for wives, especially these days, is to be sensitive to the likes and dislikes of their husbands. It is common knowledge that women generally dress up (in their best clothes), put on perfume, don make-up and look their best when they go out, but at home they remain dressed ragged or in very plain clothes, without being even slightly made-up, with whiffs of the kitchen surrounding them. It should be the other way around, in that while going out, ladies should dress simply and be in Hijab. This would create a very healthy environment. Question: Which of Shaykh’s habits do you like most? Wife of MTU: (Laughingly) All! Masha Allah. In fact, my relatives joke with me that we have never seen a wife listen so intently to her husband’s discourses. We have been, Masha Allah, blessed with a wonderful companionship by Allah Most High. It is the fruit of trying to do everything for each other with the intention of earning reward. Question: What does Shaykh prefer in food? Wife of MTU: He really likes plain mutton gravy and daal mash. Question:These days, we are surrounded by all kinds of vices - for one, there is a fully fledged media attack. To top it, Muslims themselves are inclined towards non-Islamic rituals and practices e.g. non-Islamic rites at weddings, non-observance of Hijab, extravagance, haram sources of income etc. How do we protect ourselves and our children in such an environment and how do we inculcate self-confidence in children when they are to swim against the tide? Wife of MTU: I think the most important thing to do at such times is to keep the household environment healthy and safe. If the home atmosphere is Islamic, where children are trained according to religious injunctions and are taught about the rights and wrongs in a proper manner, Insha’Allah, they will remain safe when they step out. When all members of the house pray regularly, fast and remain busy in Dhikr, Allah Most High protects them from attacks of Satan. And the most critical role in this training is that of the mother. If the lady of the house wishes, she can change the entire environment of her home. On one of our visits to England, we came across a Muslim community whose children knew more Prophetic (masnun) duas than many Pakistani children, whose young girls observed proper Hijab and all the elders were Masha Allah following the injunctions of Islam including prayers at the mosque and adorning the proper Islamic dress. When asked how they could maintain such a lifestyle in an open environment such as in the UK, they simply replied that they had kept their home environments intact. Thus, the children remained insulated from external deviating pressures. So, it is a matter of will really. Islam is as practicable today, in the prevalent environment, as it was in yesteryears. If we want to follow it comprehensively, we need to have a firm and sincere intention to do so. The rest is made easy by Allah Most High. Question:What would you like to say to the readers of our magazine, especially young females who are becoming increasingly aware of their religious obligations but face peer pressure or even resistance at home? Wife of MTU: They should try their utmost to attend religious gatherings and read books of our pious predecessors. The more they do so, the easier and quicker would be their transformation process, Insha’Allah. If a girl decides to bring about a change in her life and remains steadfast and resolved, no one can come in her way. In fact, the members of her household would also gradually start noticing the positive changes in her and might all come around to the complete Islamic way of life too, Insha’Allah. Jazakillah for giving you time and sharing your valuable views with us. Interview with the wife of Shaykh (Mufti) Taqi Usmani (HA)
  16. Exact quote from Shaykh Al-Albani (RA) about the Hadeeth: Hadeeth: 5665 - أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُعَافَى الْعَابِدُ بِصَيْدَا، وَابْنُ قُتَيْبَةَ وَغَيْرُهُ، قَالُوا: حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ خَالِدٍ الْأَزْرَقُ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو خُلَيْدٍ عُتْبَةُ بْنُ حَمَّادٍ، عَنِ الْأَوْزَاعِيِّ، وَابْنِ ثَوْبَانَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ مَكْحُولٍ، عَنْ مَالِكِ بْنِ يُخَامِرَ، عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: «يَطْلُعُ اللَّهُ إِلَى خَلْقِهِ فِي لَيْلَةِ النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَعْبَانَ فَيَغْفِرُ لِجَمِيعِ خَلْقِهِ إِلَّا لِمُشْرِكٍ أَوْ مُشَاحِنٍ» رقم طبعة با وزير = (5636) [تعليق الألباني] حسن - «التعليق الرغيب» (3/ 282 - 283) «الصحيحة» (1144).

  20. Asslamo Allaikum Sister, Briefly Non-Muslims live in these lands by rules of a covenant meaning that we have a deal with the British Government that we will obey the laws of the land which don't contradict with Islam and murdering someone in cold-blood is against the law and the against Islam and we are not allowed to break what we have agreed with. The issue is discussed in detail by Maulana Shamsud-Duha (HA) And Shaykh (Mufti) Abdur-Rahman Mangera (HA)
  21. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, During the last century we have had two prominent and powerful literary personalities amongst the Muslim world namely Sayyid Qutb (RA) amongst the Arabs (an Egyptian) and Maulana Abul A'la Maududi (RA amongst the Non-Arabs (an Indian). Both were born and raised during the colonial era of European domination of Muslim lands. Both were obviously concerned about the subjugation and slavery of Muslim lands Both were obviously very concerned about the state of the Ummah Both wrote, spoke and worked to revive the Sunnah amongst the masses and to drive Muslims towards Islam. Both were not Scholars Both wrote Tafseers of the Qur’aan amongst many prominent works The Fatwa of Arab Ulamah towards Sayyid Qutb (RA) and Indian (Pakistani) Ulamah towards Maulana Abul A'la Maududi (RA) . is pretty much the same which is and here we quote Arab Ulamah الأستاذ " سيد قطب " ليس من العلماء ، فلا يُعرف له ترجيحات في الحديث ، أو الفقه ، أو التفسير ، وإنما هو كاتب أديب ، أحب الإسلام ودافع عنه ، ودعا إليه وقد مات في سبيله ـ فيما يظهر لنا ـ ونسأل الله أن يكون من الشهداء . وله كتابات متنوعة ، فيها الصواب وفيها الخطأ ، والعلماء الذين وقعوا في أخطاء في العقيدة أو الحديث أو الفقه : لم نرَ أحداً من أهل العلم حرَّم الأخذ منهم بالكلية ، ولا من هجر النقل عنهم مطلقاً ، هذا مع أن منهم دعاة لمذاهبهم العقيدية ، ومتعصبة لمذاهبهم الفقهية ، وهذا من إنصاف أهل السنَّة مع المخالفين Ustaadh Sayyid Qutb is not a scholar and he is not known for any contribution in hadeeth, fiqh or tafseer. Rather he was a literary man who loved Islam, defended it and promoted it, and he died for its sake – as it appears to us – and we ask Allah to cause him to be among the martyrs. He wrote various books, in which he got somethings right and made some mistakes. With regard to the scholars who fell into errors with regard to ‘aqeedah (belief), hadeeth or fiqh, we do not think that any of the scholars have said that it is haraam to learn from them altogether or to refrain from quoting them altogether. This is despite the fact that some of them promoted their beliefs and their fiqhi madhhabs. This is a an example of the fair-mindedness of Ahl as-Sunnah towards those who differ from them. Both of them have now passed away and it is against Sunnah to start disparagaing and disrespecting people, instead we leave the matter to Allah (SWT) أخبرنا إبراهيم بن يعقوب قال حدثني أحمد بن إسحق قال حدثنا وهيب قال حدثنا منصور بن عبد الرحمن عن أمه عن عائشة قالت ذكر عند النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم هالك بسوء فقال لا تذكروا هلكاكم إلا بخير Sayyida Aisha (RA) narrates that Something bad was said in the presence of the Prophet (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) about a person who had died. He said: 'Do not say anything but good about your dead" [sunan An-Nasa'i] But since they were not Scholars it can't be left upto the laymen to read and figure out where they were correct and where they made a mistake as laymen (comman people) are not experts themselves so how can they critique someone else's work? So it is advised for people to simply refer to Authentic Ulamah (Scholars) who have written Tafaseer (commentaries) and refrain from reading from somone who wasn't a Scholar. Let the experts (Scholars) decide what to quote and what not to quote from their works... Maktaba Darul-uloom Deoband a few years ago published a Tafseer of the Qur'aan and they mention in the foreword that they have taken a lot of material from the Tafseer of Maulana Abul A'la Maududi (RA) and it is available in Urdu and people are free to read it because it has been checked and published by Ulamah Jazakullah Khaiurn
  22. Request to Non-Scholars: You may ask as to why she is being opposed when she is addressing a woman only gathering? The issue isn’t about this specific gathering but the general approach of Sister Yasmin Mogahed (Mujahid) and her general free mixing and the nature of her programs in USA (and also in UK). We would like to remind everyone of this saying of Imam Ibn Sireen (RA) recorded in Saheeh Muslim when he said: إن هذا العلم دين فانظروا عمن تأخذون دينكم This Knowledge is a Matter of Deen, so be careful who you take your deen from. This blog isn't meant to be a detailed Academic refutation, rather simply a warning for British Muslims to place their trust in the Ulamah (upon the Sunnah) and to boycott a person with Modernist tendencies and it would be ill advised for British Muslims to attend the event to investigate what she has to say during the event!
