  1. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Is Eidul-Adha next day of Hajj for the whole World? Hadeeth: If the whole world relied on single Moon Sighting it would make the following Hadeeth of Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) redundant! How can this be practised if the whole world relied on a single Moon Sighting? حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَامِرٍ الْعَقَدِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ سُفْيَانَ الْمَدَنِيُّ، حَدَّثَنِي بِلاَلُ بْنُ يَحْيَى بْنِ طَلْحَةَ بْنِ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ، طَلْحَةَ بْنِ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم كَانَ إِذَا رَأَى الْهِلاَلَ قَالَ ‏ "‏ اللَّهُمَّ أَهْلِلْهُ عَلَيْنَا بِالْيُمْنِ وَالإِيمَانِ وَالسَّلاَمَةِ وَالإِسْلاَمِ رَبِّي وَرَبُّكَ اللَّهُ ‏ ‏ Bilal bin Yahya bin Talhah bin `Ubaidullah narrated : from his father, from his grandfather Talhah bin `Ubaidullah that when the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) would see a crescent moon, he would say: “O Allah, bring it over us with blessing and faith, and security and Islam. My Lord and your Lord is Allah (Allāhumma ahlilhu `alainā bil-yumni wal-Īmān, was-salāmati wal-Islām, rabbī wa rabbuk Allāh).”(Reported by Tirmidhi) Hanafi Madhab: There are many who propose that the Hanafi Madhab calls for Global Moon Sighting and sighting anywhere on Planet Earth is acceptable. Practically, this is refuted by the practise of Hanafi Scholars of Subcontinent. Hanafees of India/Pakistan not only don’t follow global sighting of any country (on the globe) they don’t even follow the Moon Sighting of each other! Nevertheless, if we are to take the opinion of Global Sighting, the Hanafi Madhab clearly excludes all months apart from Ramadhan & Shawwal. The following text clearly outlines the issue for the 10 months and for the month of Dhul-Hijjah in particular: وفى رد المحتار: [تَنْبِيهٌ] يُفْهَمُ مِنْ كَلَامِهِمْ فِي كِتَابِ الْحَجِّ أَنَّ اخْتِلَافَ الْمَطَالِعِ فِيهِ مُعْتَبَرٌ فَلَا يَلْزَمُهُمْ شَيْءٌ لَوْ ظَهَرَ أَنَّهُ رُئِيَ فِي بَلْدَةٍ أُخْرَى قَبْلَهُمْ بِيَوْمٍ وَهَلْ يُقَالُ كَذَلِكَ فِي حَقِّ الْأُضْحِيَّةِ لِغَيْرِ الْحُجَّاجِ؟ لَمْ أَرَهُ وَالظَّاهِرُ نَعَمْ؛ لِأَنَّ اخْتِلَافَ الْمَطَالِعِ إنَّمَا لَمْ يُعْتَبَرْ فِي الصَّوْمِ لِتَعَلُّقِهِ بِمُطْلَقِ الرُّؤْيَةِ، وَهَذَا بِخِلَافِ الْأُضْحِيَّةِ فَالظَّاهِرُ أَنَّهَا كَأَوْقَاتِ الصَّلَوَاتِ يَلْزَمُ كُلَّ قَوْمٍ الْعَمَلُ بِمَا عِنْدَهُمْ فَتُجْزِئُ الْأُضْحِيَّةُ فِي الْيَوْمِ الثَّالِثَ عَشَرَ وَإِنْ كَانَ عَلَى رُؤْيَا غَيْرِهِمْ هُوَ الرَّابِعَ عَشَرَ وَاَللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ Shaykh Uthaymeen (RA): The correct view is that it varies according to when the moon rises in different places. For example, if the moon is sighted in Makkah, and today is the ninth, and it is sighted elsewhere one day before Makkah, and the day of ‘Arafah in Makkah is the tenth for them, it is not permissible for them to fast on this day because it is Eid. Similarly if it so happens that they sight the moon after Makkah, and the 9th in Makkah is the 8th for them, then they should fast the day that is the 9th for them, which is the 10th in Makkah. This is the correct view, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When you see it (the new moon) fast and when you see it break your fast.” Those who did not see the moon in their own location have not seen it.

  2. In UK this cult has been hammerred and rattled, they are feeling the heat.
  3. If you categorize it as Sunnah then you run the risk of labelling every man who is monogamous as someone is deficient in following the Sunnah including most Ulama, Mashaykh and Laymen of our times. How do you plead?
  4. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Alhumdolillah with the Mushwara of Britsh Ulama and Mashaykh we have chased this herectic cult called Naqshbandiyyah Owaisia from Sunniforum, blogs to Muftisays, WhatsApp and beyond. They can't take it anymore so they have decided to come to Muftisays and advertised to their Mureeds the world over (on facebook) that they will teach this ignorant Lads of Muftisays a Lesson for the whole world to see. We seek assistance from Allah (SWT) and welcome "Hazrat" and ask all Mureeds of this SilSila to read the show down. A Qadiyani with 50,000 followers arrived at Muftisays last month to teach Ahlus-Sunnah Wal-Jamaat a Lesson and he is no where to be found. All he can do is send annoying messages to our Turkish Sister on Twitter :P...Nowhere to be found in debate :) Now this Heretical Cult erroneously ascribing themselves to Deobandees have come, Insha'Allah we have Eemaan that our Allah (SWT) will deal with them, too. Let the show begin: http://www.muftisays.com/forums/27-sharing-portal/10388-the-truth-about-silsila-naqshbandia-awaisia-and-maulana-allah-yar-khan-ra.html?p=103065#103065 Since this debate has been announced by Hazrat to his Mureeds in Pakistan, answers will be given in both English and Urdu...
  5. W-Salam Khala, Our inspiration is Allah and His Rasool (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) and not stories because stories change and contradict. This is a matter in which Islam has given leeway so you can't encourage or discourage because it ends up with disastorus consequences like what happened on Sunniforum. Men have Nafs and your encouragement goes the wrong way. Sisters are weak and need support and many may think that the solution lies in this Silver Bullet cally Polygyny. We all know the condition of our men and their Islamic practise. This matter is Mubah and we should leave it to people's discretion and circumstances, Insha'Allah. Personally for me; If you do know a Sister who can read/write in English language can help me run my website, proof read articles, be copied on emails, WhatsApp etc , I will marry her because its faster, better, cheaper and more reliable solution :P
  6. Some of these stories come from Islamophobe Tabloid newspapers so according to Qur'aan we cannot believe them. We should concentrate on Qur'aan and Sunnah and not stories. Problem with Stories is that there are hundreds of others which show bad experience. My father had 2 wives and all my Brothers and Sisters have had a wonderful experience but who cares?
  7. Because there is wisdom in what God does in every aspect; please post the response as follows and let me know the feedback so we can contnue the discussion. Christian Attribution of Divinity to Jesus Christ: Christians were beginning to attribute divinity to Jesus Christ (thinking of him as divine OR son of a Divine). If God would have directly intervened in the process it would have reinforced the (false) belief in the eyes of Christians. God wants to save people from heresy so what did he do? He saved Jesus Christ but in the eyes of people he was crucified. So logical thinking would have been: Look he got captured by ordinary people and tortured Eventually he got crucified He couldn't save himself how could he be God. The fundamental argument of the Qur'aan is that Jesus Christ: Was born (miracously) but still had Childbirth He lived amongst people He ate, drank etc And he was captured, tortured and eventually (in the eyes of people) crucified He was most certainly NEITHER God NOR Son of God. All his attributes were Human. This still remains a very powerful argument until twisted by Paul and others with concoctated tails of resurrection. In the eyes of common sense and logic every ounce of divinity has been refuted and every ounce of humanity (reenforced). He was born, he lived, he was taught captured and then crucified (he was NOT divine). Do you see the point?

  13. Introduction This is a recent translation of an Urdu book on the principles of Tabligh by a remarkable scholar of our time. Shaykh (Maulana) Saeed Ahmed Khan (RA) stayed in Madina for decades teaching Hadeeth and involved with the work of Tableegh. This is a synthesis of his knowledge, experience and foresight being actively involved with the work of Tableegh since his youth until his last days. It should be read with the utmost concentration and repeatedly to try to harness the knowledge, experience and foresight of the work of Tabligh. Shaykh (Maulana) Saeed Ahmed Palunpuri (HA) of Darul-uloom Deoband in his recent Interview to our site outlined how he believes knowledge should be gained.
