Aboo Haneefah Vs. The Hanafees Of Today

Posted in 'Aqeedah, Brothers Base, Miscellaneous, Various Other Misguided Sects/Groups Exposed with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2010 by TheAuthenticBase

Introduction:

The beliefs of the majority of the sects who ascribe to Aboo Haneefah have deviated awayfrom the madhab of this great Imaam, Nu’maan Ibn Thaabit, Aboo Haneefah (ra).

This deviation is one of ‘aqeedah and fiqh. However I will only discuss the ‘aqeedah issues here in this post.

The Hanafees of today are mainly found to be amongst the Brelwees and the Deobandees (as well as other minor sects). Both of these two sects have clearly deviated themselves away from ‘aqeedah positions held by Imaam Aboo Haneefah and have chosen the ‘madhab’ of the Ash’arees (the founder of which was Abul Hasan Al-Ash’aree).

Below are two of the views held by this great Imaam (Aboo Haneefah) which contradict the way of the Ash’arees (whose ideas and beliefs are found in the Deobandees and Brelwees, amongsts other sects) and two views which contradict the Brelwees only (excluding the Deobandees):

1) Allaah Is Above The Throne:

Imaam Aboo Haneefah openly declared the ascension of Allaah above His Throne, and His ‘uluww and fawqiyyah (being high above) over his servants, and openly declared taker upon whoever doubts in that. (1)

Also Imaam At-Talamankee (d. 429) said:

“There is ijmaa’ (consensus) from Ahlu Sunnah that Allaah ascended over His Throne bi-Thaatihi (by His Self)… There is ijmaa’ (consensus) from Ahlu Sunnah that Allaah ascended over His Throne ‘alaa haqeeqah (in a real sense), not ‘all majaaz (metaphorically).” (2)

The Deobandees and Brelwees have both clearly deviated themselves away from this position and have adopted the ‘aqeedah of the Ash’arees (which is contradictory to this above belief held by Ahlu Sunnah).

2) Aboo Haneefah Never Performed Ta’weel:

Imaam Aboo Haneefah and his companions were not known to perform ta’weel (3) of the Attributes.

Rather Imaam Aboo Haneefah declared that ta’weel of the Attributes was a nullification of them, and it was the way of the Mu’tazilah.

Imaam Aboo Haneefah said:

“It is not to be said that His Hand is His Power, nor His Bounty; because that is a nullification of the Attribute, and it is the statement of the people of qadar and I’tizaal.” (4)

Taqiyyah Exposed – Part 3

Taqqiyah or what?

However, the shiite understanding of taqqiyah elevated this act almost to the pillar of Islam. And in accordance to their sources there are many different types for different situations which do not require a life threatening situation, when person could to taqqiyah.

Below you would see few samples from a huge ocean of shia narrations in which they claim their imams to be doing taqqiyah and concealing the truth. It’s up to you to judge if these are indeed life threatening situations? You’ll also see how the shia scholars pick and choose the narrations which contradict with twelver shiism and pass them off as taqqiyah.

1) Narrated ar-Rida from his fathers:

While explaining the verse “Then on that Day, you will be asked concerning pleasure”[Al Takathur:8] Ali ibn Abu Talib said: It’s al Rutab(Dates) and cold Water”.

Shiite giant scholar of hadith al Majlisi said: Maybe this could be considered taqqiyah.

Source: Bihar al Anwar 7/273.

One has to ask himself what type of life threatening situation was caliph Ali (r.a) or Imam al Redah (r) in, which order them to lie about something so insignificant and minor? Would he have been killed if he didn’t say dates and cold water?

2) And again from him:

“Eve is created from the liver of Adam, in another narration: from the side of Adam while he was asleep”.

Allamah Majlisi says: This News is considered Taqqiyah.

Source: Bihar al Anwar 11/116, 222.

Who would have harmed him if he were to say otherwise? What is a need for taqqiyah here?

3) And they narrated:

“Adam descended in India”.

Scholar al Majlisi says: We can consider this narration as taqqiyah.

Source: “Bihar al Anwar” 11/180, 213.

What’s the purpose of telling people that Adam (alaihi salam) descended in India? Did imam al Sadiq (r) said that while being chased by an angry mob of Indians? Why use taqqiyah to tell people something like this?

4) And they narrated that Tawus al-Yamani asked imam:

“Do you know in which day a third of humanity died? He replied: O Abu AbdurRahman, a third of humanity never died but a quarter of humanity did. He said: How’s that? Imam said: It was Adam and Eve and Qabil and Habil, Then Qabil killed Habil so it was one fourth of humanity”.

Al Majlisi said: The Fact that he never mentioned their sisters is considered taqqiyah.

Source: “Bihar al Anwar” 11/230.

Can anyone explain why he used taqiyyah here?

5) And they have narrated from as-Sadiq:

“Ismail (alaihi salam) died at an age of 130 years”.

Al Majlisi said: This news is considered Taqqiyah.

Taqqiyah in shia narrations:

1) They have narrated that as if prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) said:

He who leaves taqqiyah is like he who leaves Prayer.

Source: “Al Hidayah” by Saduq p51, “Man La Yahduruhu al faqih” 2/127, “Wasael al Shia” 7/94-11/466, “Bihar al Anwar” 50/181-64/103-72/412, “Kashf al ghummah” by Arbeeli 3/182.

2) And they have narrated from imam Jafar as-Sadiq:

If you had said that he who leaves taqqiyah is like he who leaves prayer then you would have been truthful.

Source: “Al Makasib al muharramah” by Khomeini 2/144, “Man La Yahduruhu al faqih” 2/127, “Wasael al Shia” 16/211-7/94-11/466, “Al kuna wal alqab” by abbas al Qummi 1/142.

3) And they narrated:

He who leaves taqqiyah is a kaffir.

Source: “Fiqh al redah” By Ali ibn Babaweih p338, “Bihar al anwar” 75/347.

4) They have attributed to prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam):

Taqqiyah is from the religion of Allah and there is no religion for he who has no taqqiyah, By Allah if it weren’t for taqqiyah then Allah would not be worshiped.

Source: “Mustadrak al Wasael” 12/252, “Jami’i Ahadith al Shia” 14/504.

5) They have narrated from Ali:

Taqqiyah is my religion and that of my household.

Source: “Mustadrak al Wasael” 12/252, “Jami’i ahadith al Shia” 14/502.

6) Narrated from Abu Jafar al-Baqir:

Taqqiyah is from my religion and that of my fathers and there is no belief -in another version no religion- for him who has no taqqiyah.

Fiqh of Taqqiyah:

Taqqiyah according to the Scholars of Islam and Ahlul Sunnah is as follows:

Imam Qurtube in “Jamiul ahkam” wrote:

“And it was said that if believer resides between disbelievers, if he has a fear about his life, he can manage them by his tongue, while his soul would be full with belief. AND TAQIYA ISN’T PERMITTED EXCEPT IF THERE IS A FEAR OF BEING KILLED, OR FEAR THAT LIMB COULD BE CUTTED, OR (ANY OTHER) GREAT PUNISHMENT. And if someone is forced to make kufr, authentic view that he can persist and refuse to say kalimatul-kufr”.

On the other hand, we have the Twelver Shia sect who have their own version of taqqiyah which is different than the taqqiyah normally permitted in Islam.

A Twelver Shiite will claim that taqqiyah in his sect is a means to avoid danger and is only done in extreme circumstances when his life is in danger.

We’ll translate the following narrations from the shia books to see if they lie about this matter or not, and to see if taqqiyah is basically just outright lying or a means to save one’s life, also to see if those shia are making their imams look like untrustworthy liars whose religion is based on deceit by fabricating a huge load of self-contradicting narrations and attributing them to the 11 imams.

Opinions of shia scholars:

1) Shaykh Saduq, ibn Babaveyh al-Qummi in his “al-Itiqadat” (p 114) said:

Our belief regarding taqqiyah is that it is obligatory. He who leaves it is like he who leaves praying, and it’s impermissible to dismiss it until the Mahdi rises, he who leaves it before al Mahdi rises has left the religion of Allah and the religion of imami shia and has disobeyed Allah and the Prophet and the Imams.

2) As it quoted in “Bihar al Anwar” 75/421 and “Mustadraq safeenat al bihar” 10/416, author of al-Hidaya said

Taqqiyah is obligatory and it’s impermissible to leave it until the Mahdi rises and he who left it has broken the rule of Allah and his Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ali) and the Imams (alaihuma salam).

3) Abbas al Qummi said in “Al kuna wal alqab” 1/141:

Taqqiyah is an obligatory act upon us in the government of oppressors -he means sunni islamic caliphate- and he who leaves it has left the religion of imami Shia and strayed from it.

Giving Zakaah To Someone Who Wants To Get Married

Posted in Brothers Base, Killing The Fitna, Marriage, Sisters Base with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2010 by TheAuthenticBase

Question:

One of my friends wants to get married, but he does not have enough money to cover the expenses of getting married. Is it permissible for me to help him and to count that money as part of my zakaah?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:

If we find a person who can earn enough for food and drink and accommodation, but he needs to get married and does not have enough to do so, is it permissible for us to get him married using zakaah funds?

The answer is: yes, it is permissible to get him married using zakaah funds, and to give him the mahr in full.

If it is said: ‘how come it is permissible to get a poor man married using zakaah funds even if what is given to him is a large amount?’

We say: because a man’s need to get married is urgent, and in some cases it may be like his need for food and drink. Hence the scholars said that the one who is obliged to spend on a person must marry him off if he can afford that. So the father must marry his son off if the son needs to get married but does not have the means of doing so. But I heard that some fathers forget how they were when they were young, and when their sons ask them to help them get married, they say: “Pay for marriage from your own pocket.” This is not permissible, and it is haraam if he is able to get him married. His son will confront him on the Day of Resurrection if he does not get him married when he is able to.

[Fataawa Arkaan al-Islam, p. 440-441]

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about giving zakaah to a young man who cannot afford to get married. He said:

It is permissible to give zakaah to this young man, to help him get married, if he cannot afford it.

[Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 14/275]

The Standing Committee was asked:

Is it permissible to give zakaah to a young man who wants to get married in order to guard his chastity?
