Benefit: Muslim Comedians?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

There is a new phenomena today of so-called 'Muslim comedy' Is this something permissible, praiseworthy or beneficial? Take a listen to the following clip, it demonstrates just how far some Muslims are taking comedy. In the coming days insha'Allāh, we will present some details rulings from the Scholars of Islām on this issue.


Benefit: Refuting the Muslim but Not the Kāfir?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
After mentioning that those who deviate from the orders of Allāh are in categories Ibn Qudama al Maqdisi (d. 689 Hijra) mentioned: 

Section Two: The innovator, if he is one who calls toward innovation and the innovation is from those that will make him a disbeliever (bid'ah mukaffarah), then his matter is more severe than that of a Thimmi  because he would neither agree to pay the Jizyah  nor would he make an agreement to live as a Thimmi. And if it is that his innovation does not make him a disbeliever, then the affair between himself and Allāh is less severe than the situation of the Kāfir without doubt. But in terms of detesting what he does (in terms of his innovation) then this is dealt with more severity than the Kāfir.

This is because the evil of the Kāfir does not extend (to the Muslims) as none of the Muslims would pay attention to his speech. And this is different than the innovator who calls toward his innovation because he thinks that what he is calling toward is the truth. He therefore becomes a reason for the misguidance of the creation and his evil extends (to the Muslims). Therefore openly displaying enmity toward him, boycotting him, being an enemy toward him, humiliating him, being harsh upon him because of his innovation and running the people away from him becomes more severe.

As for the innovator who is ignorant and unable to call (toward his innovation) and it is not feared that he would be followed then this affair is less harmful. And what takes precedence is that one should be kind toward him in giving advice since the hearts of the laymen change quickly. However, if advice does not benefit him and turning away from him would show hate for his innovation in itself, then it is preferable to turn away from him. And if he knows that this has no effect upon him because of his stubborn nature and firm belief in his heart (for the innovation) then turning away from him takes precedence, because if one does not show hatred for innovation it will spread between the creation and the evil of it will become common.

Benefit: Regarding Someone Who Knowingly Committed an Act That Nullified His Islām in Private

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

QUESTION: Regarding someone who knowingly committed an act that nullified his Islām in private, does he consider himself to have left the religion, and that he needs to utter the testimony of faith again (i.e. retake his shahādah)?  And what about the prayers and fasting that he missed up until he retook his shahādah - does he make them up or not? 

ANSWER: (by Shaykh Muḥammad ʿUmar Bāzmūl, Professor of Higher Studies at Umm al-Qurá University in Makkah):

بسم الله 
الذي وقع في ناقض مع القدرة وعدم المانع فإنه يكفر، وعليه أن يجدد إسلامه والعبادات التي مرت عليه أثناء ذلك لا يلزمه القضاء فيها، والله اعلم.
أخوكم محمد بازمول

In the Name of Allāh
Anyone who fell into an act of apostasy, willingly and without excuse, has left Islām.  He must renew his Islām (by uttering the shahādah).  The acts of worship he missed up until this time do not have to be made up, and Allāh knows best.
Your brother,
Muḥammad Bāzmūl

Benefit: The Nation of Islam (NOI) Are Kuffār; Their Origin Is Kufr and We Make Takfīr of Them

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

In a lecture delivered in July 2007 as part of the first Islamic Summer Courses with Mūsá Richardson ('Aqīdah Course, Class 7 of 12), some discussion was made on the "Beliefs of the Nation of Islām." This audio was excerpted and made available on troid.ca as From the Beliefs of the 'Nation of Islām' and published online on the 17th of Oct. 2007. During this discourse, while clearly identifying their disbelief, the speaker refrained from applying the ruling of takfīr to the NOI specifically. Our beloved brother, Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson clarifies this mistake by mentioning what has reached him of good advice and correction including the speech of Scholars who have made takfīr of the NOI (Nation of Islām) noting importantly, that they are not those who ever were within the realm of Islām to begin with (i.e. their origin is disbelief).

Benefit: The Ruling on Going to Magicians for Cures

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Question: I am afflicted with magic and went to a magician to cure me from the magic afflicting me, what is the ruling upon me?

Answer: It is not permissible to go to a magician, magic is not cured with magic, rather magic is cured by ruqyah al-sharʿiyyah, the noble Qurʾān, some permissible medicines and supplications [to Allāh]. So do not go to the magicians to cure you from magic but rather utilise the permissible medicines, supplications [to Allāh], reciting the Qurʾān, and Ruqyah until Allāh cures you.

Question: How about my going to the magician in the first place, what is the ruling upon that?

Answer: Upon you is to repent to Allāh, and do not repeat this act again.

Benefit: The Ruling on One Who Died and He Did Not Pray

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

[Q]: A brother from an  MSA (Muslim Students' Association) in Maʿan, Jordan asks in his question: What is the ruling on one who died and did not pray [during his lifetime], though his parents are Muslim? And, how should he be treated with respect to the washing [of his body], shrouding, and prayer over him, burial, supplication, and asking for mercy upon him?

[A]: Any responsible adult, who dies [knowing the Islamic ruling concerning prayer] and did not pray, is a disbeliever. He is not washed or prayed over, nor is he buried in the Muslim cemetery. His [Muslim] relatives do not inherit from him. Rather, his wealth is for the Muslim’s state treasury, according to the strongest opinion amongst the scholars. [This is] based on the authentic ḥadīth [in which the] Prophet [ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam] stated: “Between a man and shirk [associating partners with Allāh] and kufr [disbelief] there stands his abandonment of the prayer.” This was reported by Imām Muslim in his Ṣaḥīḥ. The Prophet [ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam] also stated: “The vow [religious commitment] that is between us and them [the hypocrites] is the prayer. He that abandons it has committed disbelief.” This was reported by Aḥmad and the compilers of the sunan with an authentic chain from the ḥadīth of Buraydaah raḍī Allāhu ‘anhu.

And, ʿAbdullāh ibn Shaqīq al-‘Uqaylee, the noble follower, may Allāh’s mercy be upon him, stated: “The companions of the Prophet [ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wasallām] did not consider abandonment on anything as disbelief, except [the abandonment of] the prayer.” And, the aḥādīth and reports with this connotation are many.

This is regarding the one who abandoned [prayer] due to laziness and who did not deny it as being obligatory. And, for the one who doesn’t accept it as being compulsory, then he is a disbeliever (also), who apostatized from Islām, according to all of the people of knowledge.

We beseech Allāh to set aright the affairs of the Muslims and to [lead them to] pursue the straight path, for He is the All-Hearing Responder.

Benefit: The Vileness of the Imāmīyyah Shīʿah

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿUmar Bāzmūl (حفظه الله) said: “Do you know that the Imāmīyyah Shīʿah celebrate the 9th day of Rabīʿ al-Awwal because it is the day that ʿUmar ibn al-Khaṭṭāb (رضي الله عنه) was killed at the hands of Abū Luʾluʾah al-Majūsī whom they have nicknamed Bābā Shujāʿ and described as being the brave believer?! Therefore, they celebrate this day and make it a day of ʿEīd.”

Rulings Regarding the Children of the Mushrikīn Who Die Young

  Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson

An interesting study on the various positions regarding a child from the children of the mushrikīn who dies. Is he/she in the hellfire permanently? Will he/she be tested? Will he/she be in the Paradise? During this 2003 lecture from the Toronto seminar entitled, "There Is Nothing Stranger Than the Sunnah," Mūsá Richardson discusses the proofs and evidence surrounding this intricate issue.

The Actions of the Disbeliever
