    I really enjoy listening to Abu Mussab's lectures. He's no holds bar when it comes to Islam.

    Default Suhaib Webb and His Ideology

    10 Reasons why ‘Imam’ Suhaib Webb should be avoided




    So it seems as though Suhaib Webb, or ‘Imam Will’ as he likes to call himself these days, is going back on his word and planning a tour of the UK. Whereas previously he expressed distaste for the British Muslim scene, presumably due to their greater reluctance to be as amenable to his modernist preaching compared to his American audiences, it seems after sending his female counterpart, Yasmin Mogahed, to test the waters earlier this year, the brave man himself will attempt to preach his brand of ‘American Islam’ on this side of the pond. Whether he succeeds or not in his mission of preaching what is now nothing less than completely watered down, modernist Islam will depend much on how well both the proposed hosts and the audience understand just how much this individual has changed, and ultimately how detrimental to our youth it would be to bring him over.

    “So what exactly is the issue with Suhaib Webb? I remember him speaking back in 2006 and he was ok!”

    This is precisely the problem. The memories we have of him are of yesteryear when by all accounts he preached with sincerity. Sure, he’s always been a bit confused, one minute in the Sufi corner at Sunnipath, then after unceremoniously being kicked out of there, claiming to be an Athari and switching to the Salafis at Al-Maghrib, before doing yet another volte-face and now claiming to be a “Sufi-Ashari-Azhari”.

    Irrespective of group affiliation or aqeedah, at least he always stood by some of the basic tenets and morals of what is clearly halal and haram in Islam, basic boundaries accepted by all the different sects. Surely he hasn’t change that much right? I mean no way does this Imam we remember support gay marriages, no way is that picture of him in a bar real, and no way he’d ever say anything that may further propagate the persecution of Aafia Siddique right?

    Wrong.

    A lot can, and has, changed over the last half a decade.

    Here are ten reasons why allowing this ‘Imam’ to preach here in the UK would be tantamount to poisoning the minds of our youth:


    1. AMERICAN ISLAM


    What exactly is ‘American Islam’?

    Quite simply, it’s the attempt to distort every aspect of Islam that doesn’t conform to American values. A desperate attempt to paint a hazy picture of what used to be accepted as haram to now ‘debateable’ or an ‘iktilaaf’ issue. Doesn’t matter that the Quran, Hadith, vast majority of scholars or even all four madhabs may oppose a particular issue – if this issue doesn’t sit well with the all American lifestyle, then American Islamists, with Suhaib Webb as their protagonist, will do their utmost to blur the lines between haram and halal.

    What is the aim of American Islam? And what has Suhaib Webb got to do with it?

    The aim of ‘American Islam’ is sadly very clear to those discerning enough – quite simply to please the watching American media and politicians. Whether Webb is actually on the US government’s payroll or not has long been debated and is a contentious issue. What is quite clear, however, is that Suhaib Webb is at the forefront of preaching this shameless and corrupted version of Islam, something he has made no secret of, often dedicating entire khutbas and talks for the cause.

    Allah guides and Allah misguides whom he pleases.Usama Hasan, Taj Hargey, Majid Nawaz are all examples of Islamically educated yet shameless sell outs here on our shores. Individuals who would be celebrated as ‘progressives’ in America, but thankfully marginalised in the UK by the more discerning British Muslim audience. If Suhaib Webb resided here, he would undoubtedly be at the top of that list.






    2. SUPPORTING HOMOSEXUALITY AND GAY MARRIAGES





    “Webb tweeted that he had made “mistakes” (re homosexuality) and, in an interview last week, said he had rethought the gay marriage issue. Even if Islam regards homosexuality as a sin, Webb said the constitution guarantees the rights of everyone to get married.” Boston Globe, May 2013.

    Islam complete and utterly forbids the abhorrence known as homosexuality. The American way of life promotes and support it. Remember that definition of American Islam mentioned above? The blurring of what is halal and haram to please the watching non-Muslim audience? Well here’s a prime example of how far Suhaib Webb will go.

    According to his Wikipedia page:

    “In 2007, Webb wrote an article calling homosexuality an “evil inclination” and told a gay would-be convert to Islam to seek treatment for his “problems.” Webb also gave a public speech where he encouraged his congregation to speak out against gay marriages. He says (in 2013) he has since re-thought the issue and no longer opposes gay marriages. Webb has also had homosexuals join his team and contribute to his website.”

    Suhaibwebb.com now hosting homosexuals:





    “At a Muslim conference in Long Beach last year, he suggested that mosques adopt a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy toward gays. Afterward, he was accosted by a local Imam who accused him of poisoning Muslim youth.” – LA Times, May 2011.

    As with many issues, Webb uses ambiguous wording in a forked tongue attempt to please two different audiences. To the American media you’ll see headlines of ‘Imam Webb supports gay marriages’ – to which he not only does not object to, but even reposts on his own fan pages. And to his Muslim audiences he claims, ‘I was only affirming the right of the US government to support gay marriages’. Oh really. The US government needs Suhaib Webb’s affirmation to do what they do? Give us a break. All Webb is looking for is headlines and approval from his American masters, whilst desperately trying to cling on to his increasingly suspicious Muslim following.

    We have over 500 British and European Imams standing in unison, having the fortitude to step up for what we all know to be correct and oppose gay marriages:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/reli...e-protest.html


    And we’re now going to invite and promote Mr ‘lets affirm and support gay marriages’ to our shores to poison us with the very disease for which Allah has destroyed entire nations?





    3. BLATANT LIES ABOUT THE SUNNAH


    Watch the following clip:



    Yes, you heard it right. Mr Imam Will, the same Imam who forever blows his own trumpet as to what a rich and extensive Islamic education he’s supposedly had, Azhar this, Azhar that, who are you to question me etc etc. makes the quite astonishing claim in public that the thobe is not a sunnah!

    Quite a dumbfounding claim given that within hours of this being uploaded onto YouTube, both laymen and students of knowledge over at sunniforum produced a whole plethora of evidences to prove what we already knew – that the thobe is, without doubt, a sunnah:

    http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/show...eterrant/page3

    http://postimg.org/gallery/8ede4x6u



    4. BLATANT LIES ABOUT SCHOLARS



    Again, watch the following video:



    Suhaib Webb says: “And that’s why I have a problem with converts taking social fatwas from Islam Q&A. I mean look at one of the fatwas Shaykh Bin Baaz gave. He said that it’s allowed for you to marry an American woman for a green card (American visa) and then dump her…now if you were to ask a local Mufti in America, there’s no way he would give such a fatwa.”

    What a blatant lie:





    Again, crystal clear. As the clip says you don’t have to be a ‘Salafi’ to realise just how dangerous Suhaib Webb has become. If he can lie so blatantly about one scholar, he can lie about others. He bumbled some half baked response in his usual defiant, arrogant manner but somehow still claimed he said the right thing even though Shaykh Bin Baaz’s fatwa clearly proved Webb to be lying once again.

    Perhaps it’s time we implemented one of SW’s own tweets given his blatant slander against the scholars:





    5. LACK OF SUNNAH APPEARANCE

    Sure, the external physical appearance isn’t the most important factor in the world. But there are a few reasons when this is actually relevant. Firstly, many scholars and laymen hold and expect that a knowledgeable person, an ‘Imam’ or ‘Shaykh’ should at least have some resemblance to our beloved Prophet (saw). But here we have again, the all American Imam, clean shaven, suited and booted, the archetypal mr ‘american islam’. It becomes more of an issue to ponder over when you remember that Imam Suhaib Webb inspired many of us Brits back in the day because of his adherence to the sunnah. Tall, slim, beautiful long beard and thobe…and now?



    To be quite blunt, what we have now represents everything that is wrong with ‘American Islam’ – a morbidly obese, stubble at best, suit clad ‘Imam Will’ with foremost on his mind ‘how much will CNN approve of me?’ as opposed to what kind of message he is sending to our Muslim youth. Everyone can understand a revert, or a previously non-practicing Muslim, taking their time in adopting certain aspects of the deen. The hijab, the beard etc or never quite having the courage to grow a full length beard. But seriously, how pathetic do you have to be to go from adorning a full sunnah beard and always wearing a beautiful thobe for years (as Suhaib Webb used to), to chopping it all off and, worse than that, actually going out of your way to now make fun of people who wear the thobe?

    Finally, the external appearance genuinely does become all the more relevant when it clearly becomes a manifestation of the interior and ties in with the development of deviant positions such as supporting gay marriages and declaring fellow Muslims as non-Muslims (see below), amongst his many other such Islamically unethical behaviours.


    6. CONSTANTLY PROMOTING MUSIC

    ‘There will be people of my Ummah who will seek to make lawful; fornication, wine-drinking and the use of musical instruments’ - Sahih Bukhari

    Let’s get one thing clear – Western music as played on the TV, radio stations etc is haraam. No ifs, no buts. Forbidden by the Quran, Sunnah, all four madhahibs etc etc Those who like to claim Imam Ghazali, Ibn Hazm etc really need to go and read their works before commenting. A great book on this topic is ‘Slippery Stone’ by Khalid Baig which addresses all of these issues. At the very most, even the most lenient of scholars allowed only certain music with very strict regulations – use of duff only, at weddings, in battle, no-one under 40 listening and certainly never of music sung by the opposite gender and with lewd content.

    Whether Deobandi, Salafi or Brelevi, the British scholars and Imams pretty much all sing from the same hymn sheet (no pun intended) when it comes to the issue of music. Even those with modernist tendencies are respectful of the fact that parents have spent many years advising their children to avoid music and to turn to Quran or other productive activities instead.

    And what of our Mr Webb? It appears if he’s going to leave this world having achieved only one goal, that would be to poison the minds of the Muslim youth with the concept that music is permissible. That he considers haram music as permissible and even recommended is no secret. Worse still, the manner in which he goes about promoting certain filth has become increasingly disturbing. An LA Times feature on Suhaib Webb, which he himself proudly uploaded onto his website:

    “If Mary J. Blige made the call to prayer, I’d go to the mosque; I’d be in the front row.” Suhaib Webb, LA Times, 2011.

    If you don’t know who this Mary Blige is, then may Allah bless you. You only have to google her name to realise how abominable the above quote from a so called learned Imam is.




    And more recently spreading lies about Imam Abu Hanifa, insinuating he had two varying opinions on the issue of music:




    So lets say you’re reading this and you are from one of the more modern groups that believes music to a certain extent is permissible. Are you then ok to go to a pub too? Do you want your younger siblings or children influenced by this kind of ‘Imam’:





    Seriously, need we say anymore? An Imam in a bar? And worse still, being proud of his exploits and putting it as his facebook profile picture? That sort of semi-kufr, hybrid filth may ‘fly’ in America, but this is NOT the kind of guy we want over here for our younger siblings, our children and relatives to be corrupted by.

    And now, music concerts and clubbing are not only all kosher, but attended by the great American Imam himself. Such is his delusion that he even perceives ‘noor’ (lit. light or guidance) at these clubs:





    7. THE SHEER ARROGANCE OF THE MAN


    “Hey why don’t you advise him personally first? He always claims to want to engage in discourse and different points of views!”

    Firstly, we have. Many of us have tried to advise him or even politely enquire about some of his queer stances. He didn’t reply to our emails and on facebook/twitter he simply deletes and blocks people. “WHO DID YOU STUDY WITH??!” is the usual, arrogant retort, boomed out by the big, unfriendly giant with his fly shoes n all.

    A sign of a true Mu’min is his humility with others. The sheer, almost two faced level of arrogance of this so called Imam has bewildered many. If you don’t post something completely in support of whatever he posts on his website/facebook/twitter, he’ll simply delete your comments and block you. So much for his ‘let’s engage in discourse, exchange different views with love and understanding’. All for the watching audience once again. Many individuals have asked him legitimate questions in a respectful manner, yet they simply get blocked by someone who is clearly just trying to build up an online fan-club.



    8. SCANT REGARD FOR ISLAMIC POSITION ON FREE-MIXING AND SEGREGATION


    We’ll just let the pictures do the talking for this one…













    ‘On a hot day last year, Webb walked into Chicago’s Marquette Park, where dozens of artists were gathered for a Muslim music festival. At this one, called “Takin’ It to the Streets,” women in shorts, tank tops and tattoos mingled with men in traditional robes. During the headlining performance by Grammy-nominated rapper Mos Def, Webb watched as couples danced and people near him smoked pot…After Mos Def’s performance, Webb hugged him, saying, “Don’t let the community make you feel guilty about what you do.”’ - LA Times, 2011.



    9. RESTARTING THE ‘TAKFIR’ TREND.


    So what exactly is takfir? It’s the declaration of another Muslim as a non-Muslim. For the most part, a very serious and dark practice. Back in the 90s we witnessed an ugly trend of takfir and takfiri Imams, mainly from the extreme Salafis. Alhamdulillah after years of debating, focusing on what unites most of us and generally just growing up, such declarations of takfir have gradually faded away.

    Yet lo and behold, it reared its ugly head again earlier this year. However, this time it was not the extreme Salafis, but none other than our Imam Modernist when he declared the Tsarnaev brothers – the Boston SUSPECTS – as non-Muslims.

    “Let’s say the attacker is Muslim. I won’t consider him to be a Muslim,” Webb said. “I’m not going to defend him or represent him.”

    "If a Muslim calls another kafir (disbeleiver), then if he is a kafir let it be so; otherwise, he [the caller] is himself a kafir". (Abu Dawud)

    "If a man calls his Muslim brother kafir, it applies to one of the two." (Bukhari)

    "Whenever a man accuses another of being a kafir or wrong-doer, this accusation will rebound on him if the one accused is not in reality a kafir or wrong-doer." (Bukhari)

    "The man who calls another kafir or enemy of God, and the latter was not such, this charge will indeed turn back upon the accused." (Muslim)

    "He who curses a believer, it is as if he has killed him. And he who accuses a believer of kufr, it is as if he has killed him." (Bukhari)

    Take a minute to think about this. No-one can, and no righteous Muslim will, ever condone what happened in Boston, just like no-one can condone the day to day killing of civilians by American drones in Yemen, Pakistan and Iraq (incidentally ordered by US President Obama of whom SW recently said he was ‘proud’ of). Yet until this day, even the likes of Fox TV acknowledge the two brothers are merelysuspects. There has been no trial, no guilty verdict, just a lot of media speculation. Yet before any of these, before these brothers had even been caught on suspicionof causing the Boston bombings, our dear please the American media Imam Suhaib Webb declared them as non-Muslims and as ‘savages’.

    Perhaps the more disturbing aspect of his declaration of takfir is that, unlike other issues mentioned above, both the Islamic and American legal systems adhere to (or in the case of the latter, claims to adhere to) the same axiom of, ‘innocent until proven guilty’. Yet, despite this, Suhaib Webb felt the need to really put himself out there, calling the two brothers non-Muslim savages even before they were arrested, let alone any trial or guilty verdict, and grabbing a few extra headlines in the process.

    Even if it does turn out, after a fair and legitimate trial (is there really such a thing for Muslims in America?), that the Tsarnaev brothers were indeed guilty, then they are no doubt abhorrent criminals, have innocent blood on their hands and, as mentioned, no decent human being can ever condone such actions. But to declare them as non-Muslims? There is absolutely no Shariah basis for that and to date Webb has been unable to provide any Islamic evidence whatsoever for his takfir, just a mish mash of emotional, pro-American diatribe.

    A few words on the issue from Webb’s fellow American, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf:




    On a side point, much respect to Martha Mullen, a Christian lady, who arranged the burial of Tamerlan Tsarnaev after Suhaib Webb again cowardly hid at the ISBCC refusing to offer janazah or the burial (despite the death occurring in Boston), no doubt fearful of his image being tarnished in the eyes of the American media:

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...urial/2152931/


    10. BETRAYAL OF AAFIA SIDDIQUE

    Last but not least, and perhaps his most despicable act to date in his hypocritical path of trying to please his masters at the White House, is Suhaib Webb’s betrayal of Aafia Siddique. If you don’t know who Aafia Siddique is, you probably shouldn’t even be reading this article. Our sister Aafia is someone dear to Muslims worldwide, her persecution representing the very epitome of everything corrupt and heinous about both the American government and their military. The injustices committed against Aafia and her young children by the American army until this day bewilders and rages millions of Muslims and non-Muslims worldwide.



    Mauri Saalakan, from the Justice for Aafia Campaign, who has faught tirelessly against Aafia’s perecution, expressed in Boston: “we have an obligation to respond to our sister’s unjust and brutal imprisonment”

    Surely Suhaib Webb, like all other Muslims and even many non-Muslims would support the campaign against such abohorrent and brutal injustice of one of our sisters right? I mean pretty much even all the other American Imams such as Zaid Shakir and the Zaytuna have stood up in support of Aafia, so surely Suhaib Webb would at least do the same and support her, right? Wrong. So what are you saying, a public Muslim figure such as Webb actually stayed silent on the issue? (A stance in itself cowardly enough).

    Nope, wrong again. Not only did Suhaib Webb cowardly distance himself from the Aafia Siddique campaign by declaring ‘we don’t agree with that speech (on the campaign against Aafia Siddique’s persecution)’, he then specifically ordered for the Justice for Aafia Coalition to remove all their campaign material and leave the premises. Mauri Saalakhan, from the Justice for Aafia Coalition, expressed his disgust and shock at Suhaib Webb’s behaviour:

    “Why did you (Suhaib Webb) feel the need to come behind me that evening and state to the audience, “We don’t agree with that speech!” The points I made about Aafia’s case are now widely known to be established facts… The words: “We don’t agree with that speech!” was like a sledgehammer to the chest! I immediately wondered – as I first looked at him in disbelief and disgust, and then looked over at Imams Faaruuq and Siraj – what was there not to agree with?

    Let me also note, for this record, that the only reason why I didn’t stand up and challenge Imam Webb on the spot was because of Imam Abdullah Faaruuq’s health. Shortly after our contending remarks, I was requested to take down our display table of books, cds and advertisements in the lobby area (which included a large poster calling for the release and repatriation of Aafia) and to remove them from the premises! I was a guest of Imam Faaruuq. It was his community’s program. Don’t you think that was a tad disrespectful of this fellow imam (who also happens to be your senior)!”

    CONCLUSION


    There has to be some serious thinking and discourse as to what benefit – and more importantly what potential harms – inviting Suhaib Webb and all that he preaches, will bring to the UK. The Suhaib Webb we remember from yesterday is not the same individual today.

    As Muslims who believe in standing by everything that is true to our religion, it is imperative upon us to not allow such a toxic and clearly agenda driven individual to preach his pro-American propaganda to our youth. May Allah forgive Suhaib Webb, may Allah guide him and may Allah protect us all from constantly falling into the traps of shaytaan.


    `Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`as (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Four are the qualities which, when found in a person, make him a sheer hypocrite, and one who possesses one of them, possesses one characteristic of hypocrisy until he abandons it. These are: When he is entrusted with something, he betrays trust; when he speaks, he lies; when he promises, he acts treacherously; and when he argues, he behaves in a very imprudent, insulting manner.”
    [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

    Sufi Hamza Yusuf Blames Porn for Jihad




    Hamza Yusuf, president of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, Calif., blamed pornography for the proliferation of jihadist violence during a Georgetown University panel discussion Monday about the status of Muslim minorities in non-Muslim countries.

    Princeton University law professor Robert George moderated the panel, and Yusuf appeared onstage along with John Esposito, a Muslim Brotherhood defender who heads the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Christian Muslim Understanding at the university.

    After George noted that intelligence agents routinely find sexually explicit materials on laptops belonging to captured jihadists, Yusuf offered a theory in which young men "become deeply defiled" by the pornography habits and blame the West for providing the corrupting influences. They turn to jihad for religious purification and redemption. [There are those who are fighting to end oppression and there are those moles and agents who are there to cause trouble to discredit the real effort of others, including getting “captured” with these porn. And their “scholarly” agents who sit in the west to discredit others.]

    "I really think that we underestimate the amount of people that have this experience of wanting to restore some kind of purity to themselves," Yusuf said, "and the only restoration for them is blowing themselves up and get rid of the part that is the source of my defilement which is my body." [Yusuf acting as if he knows it all, based on what credentials?]

    Esposito disagreed, pointing to polling data showing that jihadists are motivated by politics rather than religion. He argued that those opposed to jihad did so for religious reasons.

    "If you look at major polling data, the drivers are usually political," Esposito said. "People were asked about, say, waging jihad. The people who were against waging jihad cited religion. Those who were swayed by the jihadists cited politics."

    "They're always going to tell pollsters that crap," Yusuf said. "They're not going to say, 'The real reason I decided to get into terrorism was that I was watching pornography 24 hours a day.'" [Again, Yusuf acting as if he knows it all as well as equating jihad with terrorism]

    Islamist critic Zuhdi Jasser, president of the America Islamic Forum for Democracy, who attended the event, questioned Yusuf's rationale during an interview with the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), noting that terrorists have never cited pornography as their motivation. But the theory lets Yusuf give the broader issue of the Islamist ideology a pass.

    "Most of the evidence is that the 9/11 hijackers had prostitutes and visited bars before the attacks," Jasser said. "They had a sense of their going to heaven to be martyrs and that their acts on Earth seemed less important."

    Esposito's attempt to distinguish between religion and politics is a difference without distinction due to the fact that Islamists believe religion and politics cannot be separated.

    "[T]he Quran … showed quite clearly that Islam makes it incumbent on the Muslim community to establish an Islamic system of Government based on divine directives," noted Islamist Jamal Badawi says in an interview posted on his website. "We can't simply say the spiritual part is the domain of the Quran and the rest is left to others.

    "The Quran made it clear that those who do not rule and judge in accordance with God's revelation are unbelievers and rebels against God."

    This ideology – whether in the case of non-violent Islamists such as the Muslim Brotherhood or Hizb ut-Tahrir or violent Islamists such as Hamas, Al-Qaida or the Islamic State – aims to replace secular rulers with an Islamic theocracy.

    All of these groups want to restore an Islamic caliphate, but differ over how that should happen

    Yusuf accused jihadists of having a narrow understanding of Islamic law and lamented Islam's decline since the medieval period. [Islam has not be declining, it has been growing. What is this sufi smoking?]

    He took a crack at those seeking to ban shariah in America and the interpretation used by Muslim extremists, arguing that the U.S. Constitution and shariah law were not incompatible.

    "The problem is the penal code of Islam is a tiny chapter in any – and I've studied six formally, six books on Islamic law with teachers," Yusuf continued. "The penal code is the smallest chapter."

    Quranic punishments such as amputating people's hands for stealing are outdated and no longer taught in many Muslim countries, Yusuf said. [He studied 6 books and still think the Quranic punishment are outdated? Don't know who is studying from or what he is studying but to call Quranic text outdated is akin to leaving islam]

    "The scholars don't even teach it anymore because it's not applicable," Yusuf said.

    Jasser, however, expressed skepticism regarding Yusuf's real views, wondering whether he believes the shariah should be fully implemented in places like Turkey or Egypt where Muslims are the majority.

    "Hamza Yusuf will not give up the idea of the Islamic state. The bottom line is they don't see our legal system with an Establishment clause being exceptional," Jasser said. "We believe this is a system that is best for all citizens. We don't want an Islamic State."

    Yusuf's comments bordered on deception, Jasser said. He noted that Yusuf's positions are similar to those expressed in The Methodology of Dawah, a 1989 book written by the Islamic Circle of North America's former dawah chief Shamim Siddiqi. It called for making Islam "dominant in the U.S.A."

    The book also suggested that Muslims work within the framework allowed by the U.S. Constitution to bring this about.

    "I'm sure if confronted he'd say that Islam could evolve no different from the U.S., but that would necessitate a clear rejection of Islamism and the Islamist movement – a position that he only avoids but seems to reject," Jasser said.

    Jasser also criticized Yusuf's connection with Zaid Shakir, his Zaytuna College partner and co-founder, who told the New York Times he wanted to see America become a Muslim nation ruled by Islamic law.

    Comments:

    There are those who defend Hamza and his institute of Sufism and his fellow companions, some even stating that he is a “sunni” of the “hanabli madhab”. He is clearly a sufi, many who left his institute also highlighted the bidah practices they were forced to engage in while there. Many laymen Muslims today follow anyone they see online and so called Islamic organizations give these deviants platforms at the conventions to spread their deviancy to the Sunni Muslims. The younger generation of Muslims grew up listening to these deviants so they will defend them rather than go seek real knowledge from reputable sources. Some will see the right way while others will blindly defend and follow these deviants. Do they care more about their deviant teachers or their akhirah?

    Nouman Ali Khan : An atheist "reborn again" Muslim speaker

    An atheist just doesn't get up and go sign up in an islamic institution to become a religious speaker with funding already waiting for him to start his institution. An atheist, like any other convert, slowly learns Islam and starts his personal journey of becoming a better Muslim first. An agent on the other hand gets funded to get his degree qualifications and start his institutions to change the minds and hearts of the naive, misleading them little by little. As the powers of the west said, this century is a war of ideas and ideologies. And we got lot of contemporary "Islamic" speakers who have an ample funding at their disposals to mislead the ummah. As one Islamic speaker said, you don't get out of an islamic university and go start your own institution unless you are being backed and funded by someone.

    The Reality of Nouman Ali Khan

    by Abu Mariyah Junaid Bin Munawar Bin Ali Al-Hindi

    All praise is for Allaah, Lord of all the Worlds, who ordered us to follow His Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and to call to His Way, and may Allaah send praises and blessings of peace upon our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and upon his family, his Companions, and’ those who truly follow them until the Day of Judgement.

    The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: "Indeed some eloquent speech has the influence of magic" (Sahih Bukhari).

    The above hadith clearly indicates that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) confirmed that there will be individuals and groups who will call to misguidance and deviation from the straight path and their speech will be like magic and obliviously he did not describe them to his ummah except to warn his ummah from their fitna (trials) and an advice to stay away from such speakers.

    Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (d.653 H – rahim’ullaah) said (concerning ahlul bidah): ...The damage that they do to the religious commitment of many people is worse than the damage done by those Mushrikeen and people of the Book who wage war on us... (Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 35/159-160)

    In our era, among the many misguided callers, is Nouman Ali Khan who is followed and admired by many over YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp etc. Most of his admirers are the common masses who are ignorant of the essentials of aqidah (creed) and manhaj (methodology) held by Salaf Us Saliheen. For them anyone who quotes the Quran and Hadith is a reliable scholar. They easily get impressed especially if the speaker is good at cracking jokes and storytelling.

    I was recently informed that some individuals ascribing themselves to knowledge and dawah ilallaah, are promoting this individual on the argument that …’they have not seen anything which opposes the Book and the Sunnah from the speech and actions of Nouman Ali khan and that he is excellent when it comes to the explanation of the Quran and heart softening topics...”

    To have a better understanding lets reflect on the below few questions and answers:

    Q. Is quoting Quran and Hadith enough as an evidence to judge the reliability and authenticity of a speaker?

    A. Of course NOT! Because misguided sects and their callers do quote Quran and Hadith but explain in a way other than the way of Salaf Us Saliheen.

    Q. Is the methodology of the Salaf NOT necessary to have correct understanding of Quran and Hadith?

    A. Yes. Methodology of Salaf is necessary to have the correct understanding of Quran and Hadith as Allaah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala said: "And the first to embrace Islaam of the Muhajirun and the Ansar and also those who followed them exactly. Allaah is well pleased with them, as they are well pleased with Him. He has prepared for them gardens under which rivers flow (paradise), to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success" (Quran 9:100)

    Q. Is it NOT from the advice of the Salaf to investigate the condition (aqidah and manhaj) of the person from whom knowledge is taken?

    A. Yes. The Salaf have repeatedly advised that knowledge is not to be taken except from the person of Sunnah. Imaam Muhammad Ibn Sereen (rahimullaah d. 110 AH) had said : “This Knowledge is a Matter of Deen, so be careful who you take your deen from.” (Introduction of Sahih Muslim)

    Q. Is it NOT true that, Nouman Ali Khan trivializes important questions related to the aqidah (creed) and emaan (faith) concerning the attributes of Allaah Ta’ala?

    A. Yes. See the clip http://goo.gl/x6vGfz (No.1) in which Nouman try to give false impression, that the question “where is Allaah?” is not at all important question and argues that such a question was not asked by Allaah or by the Sahaba and that such issues need to be “KILLED” !! (Astaghfir’Allaah)

    Can this be the speech of a person of Sunnah? Was this question not asked by the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to the slave girl in the hadith of Sahih Muslim? Have not the Salaf taken a serious stand against those who rejected Allaah to be above his Arsh? Refer to the important website abovethethrone.com on this vital subject of Islamic faith.

    Q. Are you aware, that Nouman Ali Khan does NOT consider the celebration of the Prophet’s birthday as “Bidah (innovation)”?

    A. See the clip http://goo.gl/hL0bRb (No.2) wherein he says that he doesn’t have any opinion on the celebration of prophet’s birthday because it a “NON-ISSUE”!!! How could a person of Sunnah not denounce and free himself from actions which have been labeled bidah by the scholars of Islam? Did the Messenger or the Sahaba celebrate this? Refer the important website bidah.com for understating Bidah and its evil results.

    Q. Are you aware that Nouman give lectures alongside the most dangerous Sufis and misguided callers to shirk & Bidah of our time (like Habib Ali Al-Jifri, Hamza Yusuf, Amar Khalid etc)?

    A. See the clip http://goo.gl/4mlLvM (No.3) which is the clear proof for his deviation. If still brothers see him to be upright in his teachings then something is seriously wrong in their understanding! Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘Whoever innovates something in this matter of ours that is not a part of it will have it rejected.’ (Bukhari)

    Imaam Ibraaheem an-Nakha’ee (d. 96 H – rahim’ullaah) said: “Do not sit with the people of ahwaa‘[desire], for verily their gatherings cause the light of emaan (faith) to go from the hearts, and strip the beauty from the faces, and cause hatred to be inherited in the hearts of the believers.” (Ibn Battah’s Al-Ibaanah no. 375)

    Imaam Abu Qilaabah (d.140H – rahim’ullaah) said : “Do not sit with the people of ahwaa‘, and do not argue with them, for verily I do not feel safe that they will immerse you in their misguidance or confuse you in that which you already know. (Ibn Battah’s Al-Ibaanah no. 369)

    Finally, I conclude by saying that the general topics delivered by Nouman Ali Khan should not deceive you brothers because the call of a Salafi Daee is not just upon generalities but he emphasizes more on the issues of aqidah and manhaj based on knowledge with clarity along with ordering the good and forbidding evil beliefs and practices without mixing truth with falsehood.

    In shaa Allaah, the above information should be sufficient for the sincere seeker of truth so that he is able to distinguish between what is claimed about this individual and what is, in fact, the reality. May Allaah rectify his affairs and guide him and us to that which He Subhanahu wa Ta’ala is pleased with. Aameen!

    Important Note: Indeed taking drugs is a major sin and destroys the individual and adversely affects the communities as well but holding false aqidah, shirk and bidah are grater and more severe.

    Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan [hafithahullaah]: The innovators will have a worse punishment, since innovations are worse than sins. Innovations are more beloved to the Devil than sins because (it is likely that) the sinner may repent.

    Imaam Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (d.161H – rahim’ullaah) said: “Innovation is more beloved to Iblees (the Devil) than sins. This is because sins are repented from whereas innovations are not repented from.” (Majmoo’-ul-Fataawaa (11/472)

    The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Verily Allaah has prevented repentance from every person of innovation” (Silsilat-ul-Ahaadeeth as-Saheehah (1620). But as for the innovator, then very rarely does he repent because he thinks that he is upon the truth. This is contrary to the sinner for he knows that he is disobeying Allaah and that he is committing a sinful deed. As for the innovator, he considers himself to be obeying Allaah and to be upon obedience. This is why innovation – and Allaah’s refuge is sought – is worse than sin. And this is why the Salaf warned the people from sitting and gathering with the innovators – https://abdurrahman.org/innovation/.

    Tafseer Taught by Nouman Ali Khan at His Bayyinah Institute

    by Musa Millington

    Nouman Ali Khan’s the Bayyinah Dream program curriculum includes Safwat ul Tafseer by Muhammad ‘Ali al-Saabooni*

    [ *This As-Saaboonee is not to be confused with the great imaam, Aboo Uthmaan Ismaa’eel Abdur Rahmaan As-Saaboonee who was born 373 A.H. and died 449 A.H. May Allaah have mercy on him.]

    Muhammad ‘Ali al-Saabooni was refuted by many scholars such as Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz, Shaykh al-Albaani, Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan, Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd, Shaykh Muhammad Jameel Zayno and others.

    With regard to his book Safwat al-Tafaaseer, it is one of those books of his which were most emphatically refuted by the scholars. There follows a list of some of those who refuted it, along with the titles of their books:

    • al-Radd ‘ala Akhta’ Muhammad ‘Ali al-Saabooni fi Kitaabihi Safwat al-Tafaaseer wa Mukhtasar Tafseer Ibn Jareer, by Shaykh Muhammad Jameel Zayno, teacher of Tafseer in Daar al-Hadeeth, Makkah.

    • Tanbeehaat Haammah ‘ala Kitaab Safwat al-Tafaaseer by Shaykh Muhammad Jameel Zayno.

    • Mulaahazaat ‘Aammah ‘ala Kitaab Safwat al-Tafaaseer by Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan.

    • al-Tahzeer min Mukhtasaraat al-Saabooni fi’l-Tafseer by Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd; this is included in his major book al-Rudood.

    These criticisms led the Ministry of Awqaaf in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to ban this book and confiscate it, as stated in the Decree of the Ministry of Hajj and Awqaaf no. 945/2/S, dated 16/4/1408 AH, from the General Headquarters of Awqaaf and Mosques in the Riyaadh area, pertaining to the confiscation of the book Safwat al-Tafaaseer and banning circulation thereof until its errors with regard to ‘aqeedah have been corrected.

    Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd said:

    The title Safwat al-Tafaaseer (“The Best of Tafseers”) is deceiving and confusing. How can it be described as the best when it mixes good and bad, when it mixes the tafseers of the Salafis Ibn Jareer and Ibn Katheer with the tasfeers of the Mu’tazili al-Zamakhshari, the Raafidis al-Radiy and al-Tubrusi, the Ash’ari al-Raazi and the fanatical Ash’ari grave-worshipper al-Saawi and others? Especially when this mixing is done by one who does not know what he is doing and is like one who tries to climb a wall without a ladder. Otherwise scholars may benefit from the prominent mufassireen who do not stray from the path of the salaf, the guidelines of tafseer and the rules of the Arabic language.

    (Al-Rudood, p. 311.)

    And he said: He is described as ignorant because he classes da’eef (weak) reports as saheeh (sound), and vice versa; he attributes many ahaadeeth to the two Saheehs or the four Sunans etc when they are not to be found in the two Saheehs or in any of those books; he quotes the Israa’eeliyyaat (reports derived from Jewish sources) as evidence; and he contradicts himself when discussing rulings.

    He is described as betraying the academic trust because he misquotes reports, quoting them only partially; he attributes things to scholars that they did not say; he distorts many texts; and he tries to produce evidence for the views of the khalaf (later scholars) concerning the verses that describe the divine attributes from the books of the salaf.

    Because of his own beliefs, he tries to distort the ‘aqeedah of the salaf in his commentaries on the Tafseers of Ibn Jareer and Ibn Katheer, and even more so in his own book Safwat al-Tafaaseer. His distortion of a number of texts is aimed only at proving his own distorted ‘aqeedah.

    (Al-Rudood, p. 313, 314.)

    Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz offered him the following advice:

    We advise you to fear Allaah, and strive to follow the path of the righteous salaf in all your books. We also advise you to study the Qur’aan, the pure Sunnah and the words of the salaf of this ummah a great deal, and to benefit from the writings of Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah and his student Ibn al-Qayyim. And we advise you to study the two essays al-Tadmuriyyah and al-Hamawiyyah by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah, and al-Sawaa’iq, and Ijtimaa’ al-Juyoosh al-Islamiyyah by Ibn al-Qayyim, and other books of the salaf.

    (Al-Rudood, p. 375.)

    Comments on the book entitled ”Safwat Al-Tafasir” by Al-Sabuny and his Ta’wil of Ayat-ul-Sifat

    Question:

    What is your opinion with regard to the book entitled ”Safwat Al-Tafasir” for it quoted Al-Sawy as saying that the Messenger (peace be upon him) is the origin of mercy and blessings? Also, Al-Sawy said that adopting the apparent meaning of the Qur’an and Sunnah is Kufr (disbelief).

    Answer:

    This is all incorrect. The Messenger (peace be upon him) is not the source of mercy, except by way of Ta’wil (allegorical interpretation), if we consider that he was a source of Shari`ah (Islamic law) which is mercy.

    Otherwise, mercy is from Allah Alone and this saying is erroneous and wrong.

    Moreover, claiming that adopting the apparent meanings of the Islamic texts is Kufr, is also wrong; this is extremely bad and condemned statement by Al-Sawy. We ask Allah to save us from this.

    Kufr is to stray from the true path. In fact, a sound person never says so for both sayings are decisively great abomination.

    May Allah protect us from that!

    Shaykh Ibn Baz

    "And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers."
    (Quran 51:55)

    Nouman Ali khan, is not a person to take knowledge from he is not a student of knowledge let alone a scholar. Many people have become attached to him from listening to his tafsir lessons and other lectures in which contain many errors, the likes of his distorting of the meaning of the Quran and explaining away things incorrectly like his statement the throne of Allah is not actually a throne in which he mocks at the truth. Also he calls the people away from the scholars of Islam and says they do not understand the muslims of the west which is and erroneous statement. His list of errors continue to grow the more he continues to speak without knowledge. I advice the brothers and sisters to refrain from taking knowledge from him, supporting him, or listening to his lectures in which many innovations and misguided statements are made. Protect yourself and your Islam from those innovators such as Nouman Ali Khan who would lead you astray, and the most dangerous of the people of innovation are those whose speech resembles the Sunnah but in actuality is not. May Allah protect us from the people of Innovation and Misguidance

    Regarding the difficulty of criticizing innovators, Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) relayed the following quote:

    "When some people said to Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (rahimahullaah) that they felt uneasy about criticizing people, he replied, 'If you remain silent and I remain silent, then who will make the ignorant person aware of the authentic from the defective?'"

    Islamic Scholar Dr. R.K. Noor Muhammad on Nouman Ali Khan


    by Dr. R.K. Noor Muhammad Umari Madani

    Question: Is Nouman Ali Khan, (the famous English orator) a Da’ee who follows the Quraan, Hadeeth and Manhaj-e-Salaf? And can people with sound Aqeedah listen to his lectures?

    Shaykh. DR. R.K Noor Muhammed Answered: All praise is to Allah, May prayers and peace be on the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu `alaihi wasallam), his family and his companions and whoever follows them with good till the day of judgement.

    Noumaan Ali Khan is a Non-salafi, rather a Soofi Da’ee. It is clear from his speeches and his relationship with the soofis that he is a non-salafi Da’ee, and the people of sound Aqeedah should stay away from such personalities (who don’t know what Aqeedah is, moreover mock at it) and not listen to their speeches.

    Proof-1: In one of his speeches he said, “Did Allah (you know) make a big deal out of the question where Allah is? People come and ask where Allah is? Is He up in the seventh heaven or is He everywhere? Did Allah Ask that question? Did the Sahabah ask that question? Did they repeatedly ask that question?”

    (Ref: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-P6QMaOlls)
    (Ref its refutation too: Response to video – “Is Nouman Ali Khan with Hamza Yusuf and the Sufi-Asharis?”)

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) to test the Imaan of a slave girl asked her, “where is Allah?” and in the reply she said, “In the sky.”

    Mu’awiyah as-Sahmi (radhiallahu anhu) reported: “I had some sheep which I kept between Uhud and Juwaniyyah with a slave-girl to look after them. One day, I went out to check on my sheep and discovered that a wolf had devoured one of them. Since I am just a human, (I became angry) and struck the girl. Later on, I came to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alaihi wasallam) and reported to him the incident. He terrified me with the gravity of my action. I said, ‘Messenger of Allah’! Shall I free her (as an expiation of my sin.) He said ‘Call her over’. When I did, he asked her, ‘Where is Allah?’ She said, ‘Above the heavens’. Then he asked her, ‘Who am I?’ She said, ‘The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu `alaihi wasallam) ‘. Thereupon, the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu `alaihi wasallam) ordered me, ‘Free her. She is a believer’.” (Hadeeth no.1227 in Sahih Muslim)

    Therefore we come to know that the Prophet (peace be upon him) to test the Imaan, he asked, “where is Allah?” There are so many proofs which inform us that Allah is above the seven heavens and his knowledge is everywhere.

    Moreover, it is important to believe that Allah is above the heavens, otherwise according to the belief that Allah is omnipresent, the concept of creator and creation unification (hulool and Moksha) will be applied. Moreover, idol worship also becomes allowed because there is space inside idols.

    Proof-2: In another lecture he said, “when people come and ask me, what’s your opinion about the prophet's birthday? I say, I don’t have an opinion about the prophet’s birthday, because that’s not an issue the issue is our children are doing drugs, the issue is kids are leaving Islam, that’s an issue, you want to spend your energies debating whether it is halal or haram, or bida’h or Sunnah, when you have people leaving the Deen itself, What is wrong with you? It’s a non-issue”

    (Ref: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYoXqtIjkH4)

    If we don’t differentiate between Bid’ah (innovation) and Sunnah, then which Islam is correct and which is wrong? The sin of Bidah is worse than the sin of drinking wine and stealing, as the person who steals or drinks alcohol knows that it is a sin and tries to repent but the person who innovates, perceives the Bid’ah to be the Sunnah and does not repent.

    Proof-3: Nouman Ali Khan in his tafseer of Surah Yaseen narrates a conversation with a lady in Kuwait who came up to him with a book and said:

    Lady: Akhee, you need to tell people that they have to learn the correct Aqeedah and this is the book of the correct Aqeedah and you need to teach this book, so people have the right Uloohiyyah, Rububiyyah and Asma wassifat because people do a lot of shirk, because they don’t have the correct Aqeedah.

    Nouman Ali Khan: Thank you, what book is this? Is it Quraan? Is it a Sura’h?

    Lady: No this is a book of this… chapters and these… deviations that people have and what people consider to be shirk and it protects people from making these kind of mistakes.

    Nouman Ali Khan: This is really complicated. I am trying to study Islam, I am scared right now. I feel like I might be a Mushrik.

    Lady: Akhee this is really important, you don’t know this stuff?

    Nouman Ali Khan: No I don’t know it.

    Lady: Don’t you want to know it?

    Nouman Ali Khan: No, I don’t want to know it either.

    Lady: Don’t you want to have the perfect Aqeedah?

    Nouman Ali Khan: Yeah, I do…(Maybe I should find out where Allah talks about Aqeedah in the Quraan….) I find the ayah of Aqeedah, there isn’t one. If that word was so important where would it be?

    (Ref : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYoXqtIjkH4)

    From this we understand that Nouman Ali Khan doesn’t know Arabic though he knows to speak and also doesn’t know Deen.

    Nouman Ali Khan is famously known as Mufassir-e-Quraan in the west. We ask Nouman Ali Khan whether the word TAFSEER, has come in the Qura’an in context to tafseer-e-qur’aan? The word Tafseer is present but not in the context of Tafseer-e-Qur’aan. Then what Tafseer is Mr. Nouman doing?

    Has the word hadeeth or Sunnah occurred in the Qur’aan with context to the Hadith and Sunnah of Prophet (peace be upon him)? Then should we na udhubillah not accept the ahadith?

    Similarly “fiqh” and many other “Ulooms”, where if you apply the condition (Is it there in the Qur’aan?) like how Nouman Ali Khan claims, then there would be no knowledge of Islam.

    Likewise the word seerah doesn’t exist in the Quraan. If you search all these words in the Quraan with their terminologies, you will not find it.

    However, Deen is learnt by understanding the Quraan and Ahadeeth, as it was understood by the Salaf (the first three generations of Islam), not by individual intellect or counting the number of times a word occurs in the Quraan (to categorize it as important).

    All the Islamic sciences like, Aqeedah, Tafseer, Hadith, Fiqh, Seerah and many more are derived from the Quraan and Hadith. The Ulama and Salaf presented Deen (its explanation) in the light of Quraan and Hadeeth.

    Moreover, mocking the word “Aqeedah”, I (Dr. RK Noor) don’t understand how a person does Tafseer of Quraan when he is not aware of Aqeedah, Subhanallah! And how do people accept his words?
    The lady informs Nouman Ali Khan that people are involved in shirk, because they are unaware of the right Aqeedah, still Nouman Ali Khan didn’t find this topic (Tawheed) to be important. I don’t know towards which Islam Nouman Ali Khan invites others.

    If abstaining from shirk and protecting people from shirk is not Islam, then what is Islam? The second name of Islam is Tawheed. The reason behind revealing Quraan and other heavenly books, sending prophets to nations and creating Paradise and Hell is Tawheed of our creator. This shows us that Nouman Ali Khan couldn’t recognize the Da’wah of the messengers, because all the prophets called towards the worship of Allah alone (21:21).

    Though the word Aqeedah is not there in the Quraan, its root word ع ق د
    ١ – العقود (ٱوفوا بالعقود) المائده – ١
    ٢ – عقدت (وَالَّذِينَ عَقَدَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ) النساء – ٣٣
    ٣ – عقدتم (وَلَٰكِن يُؤَاخِذُكُم بِمَا عَقَّدتُّمُ الْأَيْمَانَ) المائدة- ٨٩

    1. In these three words the meaning of firmness is found which is contained in the technical meaning of the word Aqeedah. Namely those fundamental things which a person has complete certainty and faith in.

    In respect of the technical meaning of Aqeedah it has come as a word in the hadith (يعتقد) in Sunan Darimi no 229, there is an authentic narration from Zaid bin Thaabit (radhiyAllaahu anhu) that the prophet (sallallaahu `alaihi wasallam) said, “The heart of a Muslim who believes in the three qualities will enter Paradise…”

    2. In the noble Quran the word Imaan has been used with the meaning of Aqeedah which Nouman Ali Khan himself admits to, in his talk, when he says ‘nobody has taught Imaan better than the prophets, Imaan not Aqeedah.’

    This clearly shows that Nouman Ali Khan knows that Aqeedah means Imaan, despite this due to partisanship and hatred towards the Salafi Manhaj he could not even tolerate the word Aqeedah.

    3. Tawheed ar Ruboobiyyah, Tawheed al Uloohiyyah and Tawheed ul Asmaa was Sifaat are categorised in this way to help to understand Tawheed. This is due to the fact that people generally understand Tawheed to only mean Ruboobiyyah. However even the kuffaar of the Quraish accepted Allaah as their Rabb. And this categorization has been taken from the Quran itself and not from any other book.

    However Nouman Ali Khan is so biased that he could not even bring himself to look at the book that this lady had told him about, so that he could examine it to see whether it speaks in the light of the Quran and hadith or without evidence.

    I don’t know if the al Bayyinah institute which he founded and whose logo he wears on his collar even understands the meaning of this word or not.

    4. Nouman Ali Khan claims to want to stay away from the discussion about the sects whereas the Quran orders to follow the straight path and to stay away from sectarianism, see Surah al An’aam ayah 2.

    Proof-4: Nouman Ali Khan is an admirer and supporter of Moulana Tariq Jamil, the Sufi. And it is known about Tariq Jamil that he is a Sufi personality.

    Imam Awzaie said: (إنْ خَفِيَتْ عَنّا بِدْعَتُهُمْ لَمْ تَخَفْ عَنّا إلْفَتُهُمْ) that if a person of innovation’s bidah is not becoming clear to us, then at the very least his companionship is not hidden, because the companionship of ahlul bidah is with the ulama of ahlul bidah not with the ulama of ahlul haq.


    https://thewayofsalafiyyah.files.wor...-ali-khan1.jpg

    Therefore salafi brothers and sisters are requested to keep far away from such people and instead take benefit from the ulama of the truth such as Allaamah Shaikh bin Baaz, Shaikh Albaani, Shaikh ibn Uthaymeen rahimahumullaah, and Shaikh Saalih al Fawzaan and Shaikh Abdul Muhsin al Abaad hafidhahumallaah and their likes, so they can be guided to the true deen.

    We ask Allah to guide brother Nouman Ali Khan to the straight path.

    May Allaah allow us all to be steadfast upon the truth.

    Religious speaker Nouman Ali Khan accused of inappropriate interactions with female followers

    Nouman's friend Mozaffar alleged him of behaving inappropriately with women
    Mozaffar also claimed that Nouman was threatening after the matter was taken up by senior scholars
    Another Muslim speaker Navaid Aziz also substantiated the allegations

    DALLAS – In an untoward development, renowned Muslim speaker Nouman Ali Khan has been accused of making inappropriate advances toward his female followers, here on Friday.

    The allegations against the popular American speaker were hurled by Omer M. Mozaffar who claims to be a friend of the speaker for the last twenty years.

    In a detailed Facebook post, Mozaffar claimed that he was working on a case related to Nouman Ali Khan in which the scholar confessed to having made inappropriate interactions with various women.

    Mozaffar expressed that apart from confession, the speaker told lies and also threatened multiple parties to further hide his misconduct although he was advising him to seek repentance and reform himself.

    Mozaffar also claimed that when the matter heated up, the local scholars of Dallas intervened and started investigating the matter with Mozaffaffar as arbitrator.

    The investigations also included family members of Nouman who also admitted to “some of the accusations, though the evidence was worse,” claimed Mozaffar.

    Moreover, as investigations continued, Nouman met the scholars and agreed to stop public speeches and stop contacting all the women until further notice.

    The adjudicator Mozaffar was assigned the responsibility to keep an eye on Nouman who allowed him to post previously recorded lectures, so long as they were not about marriage or gender matters.

    The developments in this case were also communicated to Muslim community leaders so that no one should become a victim at the hands of the scholar.

    Mozaffar stated that the victims were also informed about an organisation that dealt with matters related to abuse and were encouraged to utilise all legal channels for justice.

    According to Mozaffar, he also got in touch with a mutual friend to make sure that he was not hurling shaky allegations, however, as the interrogation continued, Nouman started to hit back with allegations that a campaign was being run against him by the Dallas-based scholars.

    Mozaffar further claimed that now Nouman was sending threats against each of investigators through his attorney, however, he reiterated that ‘predatory behaviour against these students and conference attendees should be neither tolerated, nor replicated, nor ignored’.

    Mozaffar also quoted references from Islamic principles and the life of last Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) to affirm that faith comes from God and not from a charismatic leader.

    Although Nouman has not responded to the scathing allegations publicly, what adds weight to the observations of Mozaffar is the fact that Director of Religious Education and Social Services at the Islamic Information Society of Calgary, Navaid Aziz also substantiated the claims while confirming that the allegations against Nouman have been verified by multiple people, and some of them have even been confessed by him.

    Aziz, through a Facebook post, stated that the details regarding the scandal were the “right” of the victims and they would be shared.

    The speaker maintained that Islam did not revolve around the personalities and ‘your Imaan should not plummet because of such shenanigans’.

    The official also confirmed that no one wanted to air the details of this episode, however, Nouman breached a contract and it was necessary to make the allegations public in a bid to protect women members of the community.

    Navaid Aziz also clarified that a single case against the said speaker should not be utilised as a tool to malign all the Muslim public figures as those who did not commit mistakes should be held in high-esteem and learned from.

    The scholar has yet to confirm or refute the allegations, however, social media buffs were left in utter disbelief and shock over the information recently released about the scholar.

    Omer Mozaffar statement:


    Bismillah.
    Muharram 1, 1439 September 21, 2017

    Assalamu Alaykum,Dear fellow Muslims.I hope you receive this letter with the best of health, Iman, and integrity.

    Ours is a deen that focuses on justice. If teacher falls, the Deen continues, the Rahma of Allah continues. When your heart breaks and you feel your faith is shaking, you turn to Allah to rebuild yourself. If you walk to Allah, Allah comes to you with speed. In this world we will be hit with news that shakes our hearts; in those moments we turn back to Allah again and again, for He is the dispenser of good and guidance. It is ithe model of our beloved Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, that we persist with the determination that help will come, even if we do not know when.I have been working on a case regarding my friend of twenty years, Nouman Ali Khan. He confessed inappropriate interactions with various women, violating agreed-upon bounds of Islamic law. He also told lies to cover up those relationships, and filed threats of litigation against multiple parties to further hide his misconduct. I am calling on him to focus on repentance and reform. He is jeopardizing his soul and reputation; he is tampering with the Iman of so many of the students of his courses and lectures. Nouman, you are burying yourself. When rumors spread of possible indiscretions by Nouman, the local community of Dallas scholars investigated the matter to protect possible victims and to work toward justice and community healing. The scholars would not tolerate misconduct by Muslim preachers. Most of the Muslim community across the globe know the rumors; I will not repeat them here.I was asked to mediate the situation in Dallas between Nouman and the scholars because of my experience in similar previous cases, as well as my longtime relationship with Nouman. My approach is to regard the accusers as speaking the truth while still regarding the accused as innocent. Even if any interactions are between two consenting adults, they are not of even stature: the famous preacher has the upper hand, and almost no Muslim preacher in the globe is as famous as Nouman. Thus, it is vital to make sure the victim is given attention and necessary personal and professional support.

    I investigated the extensive evidence. I permitted one of his family members to support and advocate for him. He admitted to some of the accusations, though the evidence was worse.

    In a meeting with the above scholars and myself, Nouman agreed to stop public speeches until further notice, to get professional and religious counseling, and to cease all contact with those women. I had the responsibility to determine when he would be ready to speak again. I gave him an exception, allowing him to post previously recorded lectures, so long as they were not about marriage or gender matters. Likewise, it was the responsibility of our team to inform the Muslim community leadership of Dallas and the nation, in order to protect anyone else from becoming a potential victim. Leaders and scholars across the nation were informed immediately, free to spread the news. The evidence was also shared with an organization that specializes in providing services for victims in the Muslim community experiencing abuse and neglect at the hands of religious leaders. We urged those who came to us who claimed that they were wronged by him to seek justice through all legal means available to them and to warn those close to them in order to protect the community from his harm.

    I consulted a mutual friend of Nouman and myself to make sure I was not misstepping; the work of community safety and justice requires tremendous deliberation, care, and prayers. As things progressed, Nouman accused me of lying about our efforts and asserted that scholars were on a campaign to ruin him. This was obviously incorrect; there is no campaign and Nouman is not the victim here. The scholars were seeking to protect the community and to protect him from himself. The Prophet, may peace be upon him is reported to have instructed us to help the oppressed and the oppressor. We understand helping the oppressed. We help the oppressor by preventing him from further injustice.

    This brings us to where we are today. Nouman has now broken his agreement with us and has been sending threats against each of us through his attorney. Such threats are nothing less than attempts to stop our work of protecting the community; those working with him should be ashamed of themselves. We serve Allah, not our worldly interests. Thus, this call is essential for the well-being, safety, and education of young men and women around the world who learn from community leaders and scholars. This predatory behavior against these students and conference attendees should be neither tolerated, nor replicated, nor ignored. The failures of one preacher do not mean that the entire Tradition is suspect. But every preacher, scholar, and activist should know that if there is evidence that your behavior is illegal or detrimental to the community or society, you will be outed. If possible, we will work with you toward rehabilitation Insha Allah. I expect the same against me if I lose my way, a’udhubillah.

    Faith comes from God. Faith does not come from a charismatic lecturer. Hold tight to the Book of Allah, and to the way of His Messenger, may peace be upon him. Pray for all of us, starting with the victims. To those of you who, as a result of such behaviors by preachers are struggling with faith, we are here to serve you to help you to turn to Allah.

    To the Muslim scholars, preachers, and community servants across the globe, we have an enormous responsibility to help the community members cultivate their Deen. We have an enormous responsibility to stand up for justice, even if we have to go against our own selves or our own friends. We must renew our intentions in our own service to Allah, knowing that the accursed devil is a relentless enemy against each of us.

    Our scholars are and continue to be the inheritors of the Prophet, may peace be upon him, as well as the custodians of the Traditions. As we know, the Prophet, may peace be upon him, and his family, may Allah be pleased with them, were subject to much worse. And, despite the struggles, Allah’s Tradition continued, and it will continue. All of us will face the Divine on the Day of Judgment, where the only wealth will be our good intentions and Allah’s mercy. We are at your service. May Allah accept our efforts and our repentance.

    May Allah bless you.

    Omer Mozaffar is a chaplain at Loyola University Chicago and was also the one who mediated between victims and imam Abdullah Saleem a few years ago. In addition, he is one of the teachers of NAK and they've known each other for many years.

    Institute of Islamic Education. The head of the school, Shaykh Abdullah Saleem, was a highly respected scholar who faced many allegations of sexual abuse or misconduct. There was a lot of evidence against him. His story can be googled and read here:

    Navaid Aziz statement:

    While Emotions Are Raw

    A lot of you will be hearing about the Nouman Ali Khan case and will be in utter disbelief. It is very important to put things into perspective:

    1- The accusations against him have been verified by multiple people, and some of them have even been confessed by him.

    2- Details are the right of the victims and should not be speculated but rather when or if they are ready they will be shared. Please do not ask. May Allah hasten their healing process and grant them justice in this life before the next. Ameen. Please remember them in your duas.

    3- It is important to understand that our faith does not revolve around personalities and your imaan should not plummet because of such actions. Who ever worships Allah then Allah is ever living and does not die.

    4- This case has been brought to the public sphere because NAK had agreed to several conditions and went on to breach the contract. As a general case people's sins should be concealed except when there is potential harm to others. Trust me no one wanted this story out there and it is only coming out for the sake of protecting our sisters and communities.

    5- We should want tawbah for everyone, regardless of how big the mistakes are. There is always a chance to repent as long as people are alive, and our actions will be judged based upon the last of them. May Allah make the best of our deeds the last of them and grant us a sincere repentance before we pass away. Ameen.

    6- We need to hold our hearts and our tongues accountable. Do not let this hour, day, weekend, month, be a time in which your heart and tongue lead to further corruption by discussing that which we were not a part of and can do nothing about. Always spend your time wisely as if you know Allah is watching and hearing everything you say and do.

    7- We live in a day and age where trust with religious leadership is almost non-existent. We cannot allow such cases to be used by those groups that have agendas to malign all Muslim public figures. Those that have made public errors and mistakes should be held accountable, those that haven't should still be held in high-esteem and learned from. Be just it is the closest to having taqwaa.

    May Allah rectify our affairs, heal our communities unify our hearts, and guide us to what is best. Ameen.
    Allah knows best.

    Comments from reddit

    ET3RNA4: Speaking as someone who knows Omer Mozzafar personally (The person who sent this email and post on FB). I can tell you that I believe him and he is a man of utmost integrity and I trust him. I know that these are VERY strong allegations, but we have dealt with these types of circumstances in our community before and he was the one who protected the victims then as well. We live in times where people view these scholars as celebrities. Myself and others have been saying that this is wrong for years, yet people still view them as these uber knowledgeable people and they might be, but you need to be aware that these people make mistakes, and some make grave mistakes. Especially when they are seen on this pedestal. It's a dang shame when we live in a world where people will defend the person who is causing harm just because their status is seen as higher than the victim. May Allah help us all and protect and defend the victims.

    PenguinLovers: Its true guys. Don't let your love of NAK hide what truly happens. Honestly I drew close to this religion because of Ustadh Nouman, but I also have family in Texas who have been corroborating this story for the past year and a half. Its disgusting sA.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/islam/comme..._of_predatory/



    FB user Rabia Chaudry reflection:


    There are four overwhelming reactions to the revelations about Nouman Ali:

    1) shock, sadness, anger, disappointment
    2) denial, calling it a conspiracy and slander
    3) saying there was consent between him and the women
    4) we should hide the sins of others.

    The first reaction is appropriate.

    The second, third, and fourth are bulls*it. Allow me to expound on this.

    First of all, no you are not entitled to the details. No one is entitled to see the evidence of his misconduct, to get first hand knowledge of exactly what was said and done and with whom. It is enough, and should be enough, that an entire group of local and national leaders carefully investigated the matter for months, offered him counseling and therapy, and promised to keep things private as long as he removed himself (for the timebeing at least) from the public domain. It was an incredibly generous and compassionate offer given his indiscretions. But stepping off his pedestal was too big an ask for him; maybe the loss of fame and funds was a cost he was not willing to bear.

    No one would be stupid enough to publicly slander, i.e. lie, about a figure as prominent as NAK because it would open them up to lawsuits and litigation. No one would do that unless they had verified the allegations and have evidence. Guess what, they have evidence. NAK is this position now: deny or sue, and the evidence can be produced. Admit, and well, that's the end of his career, which is justice at a minimum.

    Then there is the issue of consent*, which is already tricky when it comes to positions of power where consent cannot be extricated from considerations of abuse of that power. But lets, as a thought exercise, put that aside. Let's say some regular joe married man has serial affairs with grown, consenting women and exchanging sexual messages with young women. Is that inappropriate behavior for him? Only considering him now. It is, right? Would you be comfortable with that kind of man around your daughters? Would you be comfortable with that kind of person teaching at a school? If your answer is no, you then should not be comfortable with a similar man being an internationally positioned religious leader and teacher.

    Which takes me to the issue of hiding sins. Yes, we are supposed to hide the sins of others. But not the crimes and not the abuses of power and not the predatory behavior of people with the power to do a lot of damage. The protection of our communities AND the protection of institutions of learning demand we not tolerate predatory teachers, scholars, leaders. We have to hold his position to the highest standard. Most of us feel that Donald Trump has sullied his office. In the same way, predatory community leaders sully the trust and positions given to them by the community.

    I commend those who are coming forward to confirm the allegations. I was afraid, like in other circumstances, many of our leaders would circle the wagons around NAK and protect him. We are beholden to the people who, knowing they will be slayed by NAK's supporters online and in real life, decided it was worth it to go public.

    The victims are known to whom it matters, those who can help them. For the rest of us, the space to watch will be the institutions that have given NAK platforms for years. Will they continue to do so, and if they do, what will we do? What will you do?

    *edit: thanks to the smart lady who sent me this message:
    "I also just wanted to point out that, on the consent issue, under Texas law, there can legally be NO consent if the actor " is a "clergyman who causes the other person to submit or participate by exploiting the

    Dallas Omar Suleiman on Corrupt Preachers

    "To the onlookers who are damaged when scandals about their favorite teachers start to be known. You are not alone. Some of you may have become Muslim because of this person. Some of you may have spent days, weeks, or even years, on their lectures. But here is the thing, what made you love them was that they brought you closer to Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He).

    Let the object of your love remain the religion, and the people simply be the vessels. That way if one vessel breaks, the contents need to be transferred. The religion remains perfect and sound, even when those representing it fail to live up to it. Pray that Allah rectifies those who taught you the religion, support their victims, and let this be a lesson that no one after the Prophets 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) is infallible. Let your hope and expectations only be in Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He)."

    - Imam Omar Suleiman (What do I do when I find out my favorite preacher is corrupt?)

    A Muslim Preacher's Texting Scandal Is Making Some Women Speak Out About Sexism

    “The reality is, speaking out as a woman can cost you your reputation, your job opportunities,” said one woman who criticized Nouman Ali Khan — and says it speaks to a bigger problem in the community.




    Once you get past the shirtless selfies and the “sugar daddy” boast, the scandal surrounding Muslim preacher Nouman Ali Khan is a rare window into how difficult it can be for Muslim communities to deal with claims of misconduct by leaders, especially when women are involved.


    Khan is a conservative, Texas-based teacher whose lively Qur'an lectures draw hundreds of thousands of fans to his stories blending modern-day scenarios with strict interpretations of scripture. He disapproves of men and women shaking hands, promotes marrying young, and chides Muslims who wear “skintight” clothes. Shocking claims that he abused his power to pursue relationships with women set off a nasty battle over how to handle allegations of religious leaders behaving badly.


    Last week, the accusations — along with screenshots of text messages and photos allegedly sent to women by Khan — portrayed him as an undercover ladies’ man who violated the rigid moral code he advocates. The claims also raise serious questions about whether he might’ve abused his authority in order to approach young women who attended his lectures or studied at Bayyinah, his religious center near Dallas. Khan, who hasn’t been charged with any crime, said in a Facebook post that the claims are a mix of lies and distortions about “communications” between consenting adults after he divorced his wife. Neither Khan nor Bayyinah could be reached for comment.



    The scandal is so polarizing it’s almost impossible to discuss any aspect of it without the conversation ending in name-calling. Muslim women who’ve criticized Khan received such vicious and personal retaliations from his supporters that in some cases they’ve deleted posts and gone silent. Their comments on Khan’s official pages are scrubbed by his protectors, and critics who tag Khan on Twitter are immediately blocked.


    The backlash, several women said, has drowned out voices calling on Muslims to be more up front about how leadership misconduct is a problem in Islam just as it is in other faiths, a discussion they say is long overdue. Incidents like this are usually handled quietly, through mediation, out of respect for the families involved and Islam’s tradition against public shaming. But that opaque process has failed in Khan’s situation, and the online scramble has led to vicious attacks on those who amplify the allegations.


    “This is how you silence victims. This is why they won’t come forward,”
    Rabia Chaudry, a Muslim attorney and activist who’s faced a barrage of attacks for addressing the scandal, lamented in a Facebook post. Citing “the vitriol,” she declined a BuzzFeed News interview request.


    For months, rumors of Khan’s alleged indiscretions had circulated among Muslims in Dallas, with some clerics even making thinly veiled references to the claims in public. But the allegations went viral Sept. 22 with a bombshell Facebook post by Omer Mozaffar, a Chicago-based Muslim chaplain who said he was brought in to mediate between Khan and concerned scholars, a role he’s played before in similar cases.


    By Mozaffar’s account, Khan “confessed inappropriate interactions with various women,” lied about them, and threatened lawsuits to stop people from exposing him. Mozaffar wrote that he was publicizing the accusations now because Khan had violated a negotiated agreement that called for him to cease contact with the women, get counseling, and stop giving his signature lectures about how to live by the Qur'an in everyday life. He was permitted to circulate previously recorded talks, except for those on “marriage or gender matters.”


    “The failures of one preacher does not mean that the entire Tradition is suspect,” Mozaffar wrote. “But every preacher, scholar, and activist should know that if there is evidence that your behavior is illegal or detrimental to the community or society, you will be outed.”


    Mozaffar’s post has attracted thousands of comments. Many, if not most, are attacks by Khan’s supporters. They picked apart Mozaffar’s credentials, told him it was sinful to air gossip, called him “filth” and “an open enemy of Islam.” Mozaffar did not respond to a request for comment.


    Another Islamic scholar with knowledge
    of the situation, Navaid Aziz, vouched for the authenticity of the accusations. After thousands of comments and his own public thrashing from the pro-Khan camp, Aziz posted a follow-up to address the “social media circus,” in which he stressed that the allegations had nothing to do with rape or sexual abuse and instead were “related to an abuse of power and authority, religious and worldly, at multiple levels.”


    “I abide by what I stated, and I know people will need an outlet to lash out, share their shock, defend someone they learned from,” Aziz wrote.


    The scandal only deepened with the release of text messages purported to be exchanges between Khan and different women. He hasn’t challenged the authenticity of the text messages in any of his public statements on the scandal, but BuzzFeed News couldn’t independently verify their origins or authenticity. Some of Khan’s more colorful alleged pickup lines — “I’m not vanilla” — instantly became punchlines among bemused observers.


    For many other Muslims, however, there was nothing funny about the tarnishing of a beloved teacher. Blindsided, Khan loyalists went on the defensive. On Reddit, some skeptics crowdsourced their own investigations. Even if they concluded the texts likely were legit, they dismissed the behavior as flirtation that’s unbecoming a Qur'an teacher, but not grounds to make him a pariah or to negate his two decades of service to Islam.


    Khan’s supporters quickly spread the statement he released on Facebook after the scandal broke. In a long post, Khan said he’s been divorced for two years and that the claims stem from his interactions with women he considered for marriage. He described a witch hunt involving blackmail and secret meetings. Mozaffar’s public airing of the matter, Khan wrote, derailed “sincere efforts by elders in the community and neutral parties to resolve these claims in a dignified fashion.”


    “I am a public figure and I have a personal life. I am imperfect,” Khan wrote in a section addressed to his followers. “Like anyone, my personal life and its struggles are mine to bear.”


    This zealousness of Khan’s defenders, hundreds of women among them
    , infuriated other Muslim women who say a female scholar never would’ve been granted such benefit of the doubt with the same claims. Rather than rallying around the women who dared to stand up to such an influential figure, critics say, Khan’s supporters have gone all out to smear them.


    “He’s part of the ‘Good Muslim Boy Club,’” said Shiyam Galyon, an activist in New York who’s publicly criticized the handling of the accusations. “And we will go to great lengths to defend the good Muslim boy.”


    A Muslim satirist skewered the reaction to the Khan mess in a piece titled “Muslim Community In Disbelief Over Completely Believable Scandal.” No amount of revelations seemed enough to sway Khan’s supporters. The chaplains’ statements? Jealous rivals. The accusations? Fueled by a bitter ex-wife. The text messages? Faked on a smartphone app. OK, but the shirtless selfie? Photoshop, obviously.


    “People would rather believe this is just a large conspiracy against him and his business
    ... I’m glad these women haven’t come out and shown their faces, because their lives would be hell,” said Abrue Hussain, a consultant in New York who tweeted about the scandal and became a target. One commenter told Hussain to get “your feminist ass off Twitter"; another told her, “Go wear a hijab first and then come open your mouth.”


    “I’m actually dumbfounded by some of the responses I’ve received, saying that harassment is all made up in a woman’s head,” she said. “The way we’ve been belittled in this whole situation. Belittled.”


    Zareena Grewal, a Yale University professor who’s written extensively about US Islamic authority, said that scandals like Khan’s can be particularly difficult for Muslims, because they know they are used to disparage Islam as a whole.


    “You think of OJ Simpson or Bill Cosby — people jumped to their defense because they loved them,” Grewal said. “When that hero also happens to be a religious authority, it’s exaggerated all the more.”


    The women say it doesn’t help that many of the nation’s loudest Muslim voices have fallen mute when it comes to Khan, with clerics and activists saying privately that they’re in shock and working behind the scenes on a coordinated response. That leaves the accusers, whose names aren’t public, and a handful of their thick-skinned defenders alone in facing Khan’s defenders across the globe.


    Perhaps the most battle-hardened of Khan’s critics is Laila Alawa, a Muslim media and tech entrepreneur who last year was besieged by anti-Muslim trolls after a right-wing website noted her involvement with a Department of Homeland Security effort to counter violent extremism. In that episode, the comments included one wishing she’d “die slowly in a pool of pig’s blood.”


    This round of attacks is even more upsetting, Alawa said, because they come from her own community. In response to her criticism of Khan, Alawa has been called a fake Muslim, a paid Muslim, a hoe, a bitch, and “a self-righteous old hag.” (She’s 26.) The messages got so bad Alawa’s sister stepped in and began deleting the worst.


    “It sucked,” Alawa said. “But it also made me think, OK, process it and move on. Now what can I do to make sure this doesn’t happen to another woman?”


    Alawa said the issue is personal. In college, she said, she became enthralled by a charismatic student leader who tried to seduce her. When she quietly warned other Muslim women about him, she said, she was labeled a whore. She ran into harassment again as a professional in Washington, she said, when a high-profile Muslim man hit on her in the middle of a job interview.


    Both examples, Alawa said, show the lack of resources for Muslim women in such situations, an issue activists are beginning to address through groups such as FACE, which stands for Facing Abuse In Community Environments. FACE’s mission is “to hold accountable imams, scholars and Muslim community leaders for unethical and/or criminal behavior.” It’s still so new Alawa hadn’t heard of it until it was mentioned in the Khan scandal.


    The reason she won’t back down is the stream of letters she’s received. She said more than two dozen Muslim women have described their own encounters with community figures, ranging from inappropriate comments to groping or worse. Muslim-interest publications typically wouldn’t touch the claims, which are mostly anonymous, but Alawa’s news and opinion site for millennial women, The Tempest, is running them.


    “The reality is, speaking out as a woman can cost you your reputation, your job opportunities,” she said. “It’s an insanely deep fear that we’ve taught our young women time and again with all the rhetoric around modesty and hijab. If you’re being told over and over that it’s the woman’s responsibility to be chaste, women are going to internalize it as their fault if they get harassed.”

    Nouman Ali Khan Followers/Fans



    If Nak "was to apostate" his fans would either follow suite or make excuses. They idolize him so much that they would put Nak before Deen.

    Stop being fanatical about a "speaker" have jealously over the deen of Allaah Subhana wa ta a'la and protect it. Don't let the beautified words of a speaker misguide you... Remember no man is above this deen. Don't compromise with your akhira over a man. No One is infallible.

    Nak fans need take a step back and examine the religious devotion they are feeling. Remember that no one except Allah is perfect.

    Do not conflate your “relationship” with Nouman Ali Khan to your relationship to Allah. Many commenters on the issue have said things like, “I could never believe this about Nouman, he guided me to Islam!”

    Nouman could not guide you to Islam any more than the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) himself could guide his beloved uncle Abu Talib, who died a polytheist. Guidance is with Allah, not with any Da’ee or teacher.

    The serious statements of kufr and extreme deviance that he has made should be warned against in order to stop others following the same path.

    1. His statements that a (modern) Jew or Christian is not necessarily a disbeliever: https://youtu.be/IlzGt0AbMjQ

    2. His statement that we should love Jews/Christians: https://youtu.be/mexXfJg5UJE

    3. His statement that the idols should not be destroyed by the Muslims: https://youtu.be/CeCx-ZbP-hQ

    4. His devaluing of the importance of learning aqeedah, including statements where he said it was not important to know that Allah is above His throne: https://youtu.be/wM8s53DMT58

    5. His statements saying it is not important to care about whether the Prophet's birthday is a bidah or not: https://youtu.be/T-P6QMaOlls (about 3 mins 23 seconds in)

    This man distorts Quran and hadith, belittles aqeeda, manhaj and bidah and no one even bats an eyelid but when his dirty little secrets are exposed "people go mad"

    People need to wake up and take knowledge from real scholars instead of this celebrity clown.
    People are besotted with his celebrity status and eloquent speech.

    The Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: “Verily, Allah does not take away knowledge by snatching it from the people, but He takes it away by taking away (the lives of) the religious scholars till none of the scholars remains alive. Then the people will take ignorant ones as their leaders, who, when asked to deliver religious verdicts, will issue them without knowledge, the result being that they will go astray and will lead others astray.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

    The Truth About Our Reluctance to Accept Nouman Ali Khan Victims

    by Zoha Qamar - September 25, 2017

    A series of allegations regarding inappropriate conduct by popular speaker Nouman Ali Khan hit a tipping point earlier this week.

    A number of prominent Muslim-American community leaders have released statements through social media, with a substantial fraction of them asserting the claims of his gender-based and sexual misconduct to be true. Inappropriate messages with a number of women, most of whom were also being led to believe he was interested in marrying them, have surfaced in a series of screenshots on a website, that is authored by a group that says, “We are the victims of the womanising and lying of Nouman Ali Khan” on the homepage.

    The photos in the screenshot conversations, which include photos of his body and other racy content, escalate in their aggressive, womanizing nature by direct references to multiple women about getting married simultaneously. In one of the messages, he threatens a woman’s job. There are also screenshots of what is believed to be a payment transaction as a bribery for silence about the matter.

    The photos have also been widely circulated on Facebook, as seen on the profile of prominent community figure Rabia Chaudry, who says she has been in contact with victims and speaks to the veracity of the images.

    This recent uproar is the latest and most viral addition to the unfolding story of Nouman Ali Khan’s indiscretions. It geared into full force this past Thursday, with statements including a long Facebook post by Omer M. Mozaffar, a Chicago-based chaplain.

    Navaid Aziz, a well-known Canadian Muslim speaker, sheikh and Director at Al-Maghrib Institute, confirmed, “The accusations against him have been verified by multiple people, and some of them have even been confessed by him.”

    Mozaffar was asked to investigate early allegations once they began to surface in Khan’s Dallas community. What began as a more quiet investigation turned into a larger ordeal when Khan himself violated the terms of the investigation, which included ceasing professional speeches, as well as contact with the women affected. Khan had admitted to some of the claims throughout these early stages, says Mozaffar.

    Later, however, Khan began to pursue legal action against the various involved parties, including other community figures such as Mozaffar himself, escalating into the situation at hand. He has now denied all allegations. His major Facebook post in response began with, “I want to first thank those persons who have seen through the falseness of these allegations.”

    Facebook and Twitter are exploding with reaction. While some deny the truth altogether – citing jealousy as a motivating factor for those who are posting in support of the accusations – others acknowledge that though the conversations may be authentic, there is nothing “threatening” about the messages. That they may, in fact, be dialogue between two consenting adults.

    As is always, true, Allah knows both the best and the truth. That being said, many defenders of Khan claim such a divine “Allah knows best” ethic while disregarding the harm that is done by simply denying without examining the depth and complexity of the allegations.

    Considering that Khan did verify a portion of these claims earlier in the investigation, these allegations must have some truth to them. Those who condemn figures like Mozaffar, Chaudry and the harmed women as liars fail to see the power dynamics that are at play in the situation.

    Consent is more complicated than a legal age or saying “yes” – it’s about the agreement between two people on fair, equal conditions.
    Any man with this amount of power, fame and wealth cannot engage in such clandestine and, frankly, sketchy activity and be considered of an “equal playing field” as with these women who don’t have a cult following. Khan’s threat to terminate one woman’s job and his bribe to silence another is a testament to the power-dynamics that were set in motion once he entered these relationships.

    That’s why rules exist against teachers and students engaging in intimate relationships.

    That’s why rules exist about bosses and employees engaging in intimate relationships.

    The full spectrum of reactions defending Khan in this situation speaks greatly to the Muslim community’s attitudes toward the ideas of relationship and emotional abuse, along with sexual violence and assault.

    His believers want evidence, which has been provided, yet they continue to deny the possibility of the misconduct
    . People are blaming Photoshop. This is the shield of fame and a cult-following at work. It is the human susceptibility to corruption, against whom no one, not even one’s favorite scholar, can be totally immune.

    As Mozaffar said in his post, it is important to believe the stories of the victims, while still not sentencing the accused to a sealed fate. The culture of our communities is revealing itself to be inadequate of exploring this paradoxical state, at the entire expense of the voices of the victims. What this seeming contradiction is meant to foster, however, is less of a reaction to sorting through this exact NAK situation itself, and more about offering the tools for our community, especially its survivors, to navigate this desolate territory.

    The judgments to this case are coming from a need to parse these accusations immediately. What it is missing from this approach is acknowledging that assaults of this nature are more than isolated events – within our community and beyond. Silencing women and our narratives to save the face of figures we trust is a cultural crutch that we’ve been socialized to lean on, and should no longer accept.

    A common reason to refute the claims also speaks to the hypocrisy of our community in who we are willing to undercut as a price for safety.

    Tackling narratives of sexual violence and misconduct cannot be equated to “airing the dirty laundry” while Muslims are already trying to live through a tough time of names, demonization and assumptions. That is simply sacrificing our values to pitch ourselves to Islamophobes or others of the like who simply wish to take any information about our community to use against us. If we fail to address issues of abuse at the price of seeming harmless to others, we are doing a disservice to survivors and non-survivors alike. If we think that covering up these allegations for the sake of protecting the name of the Ummah only damages a minuscule amount of women, then we are incorrectly gendering the victims of assault, as well as reducing the pain and struggles of fellow Muslims.

    As Amanda Quraishi wrote on Facebook Saturday afternoon, “If the ‘Unity’ of your community depends on denying wrong-doing and suppressing the voices of people who have been hurt, marginalized or taken advantage of… guess what? You don’t have Unity. You have Oppression.”

    This isn’t the first time an issue of this nature has hit the Ummah on such a scale. A little over two years ago, Mohammad Abdullah Saleem of the Chicago-area was accused of sexual abuse allegations, soliciting a report from a variety of national sources including the New York Times.

    Though options are somewhat scarce and we must do more to provide more, please refer to the below references if you or a loved one wants to know more about resources relating to sexual violence and assault, especially for Muslim survivors:

    Part 1 : The Falsehood and Misguidance of Yasir Qadhi Made Plain and Clear

    Our Intention is NOT to humiliate or insult anyone, but just to warn the people of wrong messages being conveyed by a person who has some how strayed far away from the teachings of Islam. Such teachings have now been observed to lead people astray from the true teachings of Islam

    Regarding Yasir Qadhi : He Left the Path of Madina University and enrolled In YALE University ‘s islamic study program 2005. he finished his phd in 2013 . for 8 years he studied Islam under the Atheists , Unbelivers , Innovators , Shia People..

    He Himself Said,

    Yasir Qadhi : I Left the Path of salafies. & also he said Salafi Islam is Trend it is not A Authentic Movement.

    Yasir Qadhi : “Well I guess 20 years ago when I was a teenager I definitely would have self identified as a Salafi Muslim but over the course of the last decade or so I’ve kind of sort of grown out of the movement now.”

    Interviewer: “What does that mean, ‘grown out of the movement’?”

    Yasir Qadhi : “I found the movement is not as intellectually stimulating as I would like it to be….“

    Listen Interview here :


    Astagfirullah .. You Yasir Qadhi …??

    Here our Answer is for you in Tafseel : http://www.salafis.com/articles/hpfu...dern-sects.cfm

    —>> Yasir Qadhi (born 1975), a self-proclaimed scholar and theologian who works for Al-Maghrib Institute is increasingly misguiding the youth, particularly in Western lands who aren’t connected to the senior erudite Ulemaa as much as they should be due to institutes like Al-Maghrib who actively pursue the goal of separating Muslims from the firmly grounded senior scholars who have fiqh of the religion and instead promote attachment to speakers and instructors who are propped-up to be “shuyookh”.
    .
    ———————————————–
    3.YASIR QADHI’S VISIONS OF UNITING THE SECTS:

    Yasir Qadhi states:
    “It is important to stress, however, that the purpose of this pledge is not to vindicate or justify one ideology over another. These differences have existed within Sunni Islam (in the broad sense of the term) for the last twelve centuries, and the fact of the matter is that, barring some sort of Divine Intervention, it does not appear that these difference will leave us any time soon.

    Therefore there needs to be a more pragmatic and realistic attempt at cooperation, one that retains our traditionalisms and respects our historical traditions, yet at the same time takes into account the context of our current political and social situation.”

    ———-
    This call of Yasir Qadhi is to the destruction of the principle of “enjoining the good and forbidding the evil” in the name of unity with the sects of misguidance. May Allaah protect us.

    ———————————————–
    4. YASIR QADHI DISPLAYS HIS DEVOTION FOR AHLUL-BID’AH

    Yasir Qadhi,states in his call to unite truth with falsehood:Friends you will see More his vedios I will Give you Links below “The one (Yasir Qadhi) who entered into agreements with Ahlul-Bid’ah, severing the ties of his followers, slowly but surely, then he dragged them to cooperate with soofees, shee’ah, setting aside differences and avoiding criticism. “These cowards and sissies with certificates and diplomas stand side-by-side with them (Ahlul-Bid’ah) and cannot speak. It is the scholars who love the Ummah, who will speak when people fail to speak, the scholars who love Allaah, and they are not looking for recognition of the people and approval and applause.

    ———————————–

    5. Yasir Qadhi, self-proclaimed scholarand Dean of Academic Affairs at Almaghrib Institute,has recently become even more active in requesting the general Muslims to keep away from the scholars of Islaam, and to rely completely on Westernized and apologetic preachers like himself and those connected to his Almaghrib Institute, those currently being set up as replacements for the actual scholars of Islaam.

    In a recent speech about “modernity” in December of 2013, Yasir Qadhi tells stories of the “stupidity” of the scholars of Islaam throughout history, and how their rigidity and lack of connection to the people has always kept Islaam and the Muslims from progress.

    After laying down the foundations for the scholars to be viewed as a bunch of clowns to be laughed at, he introduces a shining brand of “scholars” who are forward-thinking and actively connected to the people. Who are they? They are the deviant political activists of the Muslim lands, those the scholars of Islaam have warned against time and time again, the likes of Hassan al-Bannaa, founder of the al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimoon Sect, and Saudi activist Salman al-’Owdah, whom Yasir praises highly as a “forward-thinking realistic scholar”. Also fanatically promoted is Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, in the words of Yasir Qadhi:
    One of our main reference points A towering intellectual genius [!]Somebody who understands the Sharee’ah and its applicability in modern timesAn ‘aalim (scholar) with unrivaled scholarship [!]

    Astagfirullah

    The clearest goal of the lecture can be found in Yasir Qadhi’s explicit advice for the Muslims, already admittedly disconnected from the scholars, to not refer to scholars overseas, but rather to rely on “local scholars” who understand our lives and our societies!

    He says:…You cannot get a fatwaa about living in a secular democracy from somebody who has never lived in a secular democracy. You cannot get a fatwaa about how to interact with your homosexual neighbor when a person has never met a homosexual in his life…


    { Source: His December 7, 2013 His lecture in Detroit entitled “Looking Back as We Look Forward” (at about 52 minutes into the recording). }

    ——–
    If you are paying attention to what Yasir Qadhi is saying here, and Allaah has blessed your intellect with balance and understanding, you should be able to see his goal becoming very clear – Replacing the DISTANT scholars of Islaam with his LOCAL team of brazen forward-
    ——————————————
    6. In a recent interview on Iranian Shia “Press TV”, Yasir Qadhi re-affirms that he is now a changed manwho regrets his previous stances against the Shia cult. Using Tony Blair’s magical rhetoric, he slips away from Shia accusations that he spoke against them, claiming it was based on unverified misinformation he was given in Madinah University! Comparing this to his previous boasting about his level of ‘certain knowledge” about Shia teachings taken directly from their own source books, we can clearly see that Yasir has indeed learned well from his shaikh at Yale University – how to cleverly lie his way out of accusations so cleverly!


    ——————————————

    7. Yasir Qadhi, Dean of Academic Affairs at Almaghrib Institute is recognized by the heads of the Ikhwan and Shia as a “changed man”. He has openly denounced “salafism” and now you see what he has replaced it with (if he ever had it to begin with!)


    —————————————–
    8. Yasir Qadhi said the following in his lecture: “Towards an Ecumenical Conception of Salafiyah”:
    “And Salafis need to realise, and I am going to be very blunt here, that if Umar Ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه) was with us right now and they gave him a quiz of ‘Aqeedah… the fact of the matter is that test that you put in front of him he would fail it!… You would ask ‘Umar Ibn Khattab what are the categories of Tawheed, what do you think he’s going to say? You would ask Umar Ibn Khattab ” الرحمن على العرش استوى” what does it mean explain to me in detail. You would ask ‘Umar Ibn Khattab about the realities and intricacies of abstract issues that they never thought about. You would ask ‘Umar Ibn Khattab even about basic issue of fiqh that you memorize in your textbooks right what are the Nawaqid (nullifiers) of Wuduu, what is the Nawaqid of this, what is this, what are the Shuruut (conditions) of Wuduu, what are the Shuruut of Salaat… “


    Astagfirullah… Astagfirullah

    start from Minute 34:16:


    –>> Shaykh Ahmed Bazmool { hafithahullah } Refutes the disgusting and foul accusation Yasir Qadhi made on Umar ibn al-Khattab



    ————————–

    9. Yasir Qadhi recently admitted to studying under Tony Blair and other non-Muslim experts on Islam at Yale University for eight years (2005-2013). This has has shocked many of his followers. In this series, we examine his side of the story carefully, so people are not tricked by the magic of beautiful speech.

    Part 1 : we examine Yasir’s claim that he did not learn Fiqh from Tony Blair, but rather just politics, a “generic dunya” kind of knowledge.



    Part 2 : we examine what he DID admit to learning from Tony Blair – the magic of rhetoric.

    An analysis of the politicisation of Yasir Qadhi over the years, culminating with his full-circle Ikhwaanee principles. From the most important deviations being his reclassification of politics outside the realm of the Qur’an and Sunnah, his open cooperation with the Shee’ah, and his adaptation of deceitful rhetoric (magical speech) at the hands of famous politicians such as Tony Blair.



    From This Above Audio the topics discussed:

    The clear Ikhwaanee methodology of Yasir Qadhi: his catch phrases and trickery

    Qadhi’s replacement of the Islamic fiqh of politics with kufree democratic principles

    The inner hatred of the Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen (and its various offshoots) for real Islamic politics based on Qur’an and Sunnah

    Detailed examples of Yasir Qadhi demonstrating the influence of Tony Blair’s magical speech when speaking about Shee’ah: dressing up kufr and misguidance as something tolerable

    10. Yasir Qadhi said: “In conclusion; the Qur’an cannot be then a letter for letter, tashkeel for tashkeel narrative that the later scholars verbalize and the Muslim Ummah is taught. Therefore the preservation must be interpreted in another manner.”

    He also said: “Problem: How can we then understand the Qur’an as being Kalaam Allah (the speech of Allah) when clearly there are human aspects to it.”

    He also said that the issue of the Qur’an being the speech of Allah has to be rethought.

    Watch Here : What Happens BEHIND The Scenes In The Da’wah Scene!!! By || Imran Bin Mansoor



    Our Answer : Belief of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah; we believe that the Qur’an is the words of Allah sent by him and is not created. From him it originates and to him it returns and that it is Allah’s true speech in reality and it is not the speech of anyone else. If it is read, written or memorized it is still the speech of Allah in terms of its letters, its words and its meanings.(Summary of Ibn Taymeeyah’s speech in Waasiteeyah)

    The Mu’tazilah, who Imam Ahmad and many of the Imams of that time have classified as disbelievers, believe that the Qur’an is the speech of Allah but created. Their principle regarding this is that the attributes of Allah are created and this led them to clear heresy since if one says that Allah’s descriptions are created he is in fact saying that Allah himself is created which is disbelief.

    The Asharis (the Kulabeeyah) believe that the Qur’an is an expression of Allah’s eternal speech as they believe that Allah speaks without letters and voice and doesn’t speak whenever he wants at whatever time he wants hence nullifying Allah’s will and ability from his actions and speech. This is also clear falsehood since Allah spoke to Musa saying: “Verily I am Allah there is nothing worthy of worship but me…”, and it is impossible that the fire or an Angel said this to Musa (غليه السلام)

    Now, the rhetoric of these groups DOES NOT contest the issue of the word by word preservation of the Qur’an. Rather, their intention through this rhetoric was to distance Allah from having the qualities of the creation. And although these intentions were good they still ended up in misguidance since they deviated from the Prophetic methodology.

    Now, Yasir Qadhi said:
    “In conclusion; the Qur’an cannot be then a letter for letter, tashkeel for tashkeel narrative that the later scholars verbalize and the Muslim Ummah is taught. Therefore the preservation must be interpreted in another manner.”

    He also said:
    “Problem: How can we then understand the Qur’an as being Kalaam Allah (the speech of Allah) when clearly there are human aspects to it.”

    He also said that the issue of the Qur’an being the speech of Allah has to be rethought.

    Now, look at that speech and compare it to the Mu’tazilah and the ‘Asharis (who Yasir does not care about being classified with) and we would see that the deviants from the Mu’tazilah and the ‘Asharis still believe in the divine nature Qur’an (i.e being the speech of Allah). As for Yasir, he questions the very preservation of the Qur’an and its divinity.

    Yasir Qadhi’s methodology is reminiscent of that of Jahm Ibn Safwan’s. Instead of acceptance and submission he resorted to dispute, rhetoric and argumentation. Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, the Imam who was famous for his knowledge and his fortitude, said in his book; “Refutation of the Heretics” about Jahm:
    “And from that which that has reached us is that Jahm, the enemy of Allah, was from those of Khurasan, from Tirmidh, and he was a person of argumentation and rhetoric” (Refutation of the Heretics: 7)

    Now although there are many verses in the Qur’an which refute Yasir’s speech and which clearly state that it is the speech of Allah sent to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) the following two verses are those which I think would render Yasir’s arguments null and void.

    Allah has said about the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم):
    “And he does not speak from his desires. It is only a revelation unto him.”
    Surah Najm {53:3-4}
    Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal said regarding this verse:
    “He (Allah) says that verily Muhammad didn’t speak of this Qur’an from himself. He therefore said “It is”- meaning the Qur’an- “only a revelation unto him.” Therefore Allah has negated that the Qur’an be other than revelation” (Refutation of the Heretics: 11)

    Likewise Allah has said in Surah Haaqah (69 :43-47)
    ” This is the Revelation sent down from the Lord of the Worlds. And if he (Muhammad) had forged a false saying concerning us. We surely would have seized him with the right hand. And we certainly would have cut off his life artery. And none of you could have witheld us from (punishing him).”

    Therefore, if it is a revelation sent by Allah and didn’t come from Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) and even he; the greatest man to ever walk on this earth, could not invent any statement regarding Allah’s revelation then what evidence of human interference (human element as he calls it) is Yasir speaking about exactly?

    In conclusion, We advice to Yasir is to take some time and read the Qur’an and avoid fruitless debate and rhetoric which would put one into clear disbelief. Additionally, after he has fed the Western Masses the perception that the real scholars are unable to deal with contemporary matters I think that since he has doubts about the Qur’an (although he claims to be a theologian) it is about time that he bat in his crease, humble himself and sit under the scholars of Islam rather than Tony Blair.

    Part 2 : The Falsehood and Misguidance of Yasir Qadhi Made Plain and Clear


    11. Yasir Qadhi’s Scholars at Yale Univ. (Part 1)
    Against the clear advice of the scholars, Yasir Qadhi studied Islam in Yale University for 8 years, 2005-2013. Three of Yasir Qadhi’s most prominent teachers at Yale University are identified in this video: Tony Blair, Dr. Griffel and Rev. Bowering. More to come (in sha Allah)



    12. Yasir Qadhi said about Hasan Al Banna Fouder of IKHWANUL-MUSLIMEEN SECT As a Scholer of Elite , Intellectual Movers , $ Shakers .



    13. Yasir Qadhi Praises Yosaf Qardawi As Unrivaled scholer , Towering Intellectual Genius!

    Astagfirullah



    –>> Yasir Qadhi even dont dont know those who Praised Innovator he is counted amongst them

    1. Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, “And whoever holds a good opinion of them – and claims that he does not know their true condition – then he is .acquainted with their true condition. So if he does not separate from them and make open his rejection of them, thenhe is to be counted from Amongst them. And as for the one who says that their words have a ta’weel (interpretation) that is in agreement with the Sharee’ah, then he is actually from amongst their leaders and chiefs. And if he is an intelligent person, then he will know his own lie in what he has stated (i.e.knows he is uttering a lie).” (Majmoo al-Fataawaa 2/133)

    Again Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said, “It is obligatory to punish everyone who ascribes himself to them the people of innovation or who defends them, orwho praises them, or who reveres their books, or who detests that they should be talked about, or who begins to make excuses for them by saying he does not understand what these words mean or by saying that this person also authored another book and what is similar to these types of excuses, which are not made except by an ignoramus or a hypocrite. Rather, it is obligatory to punish everyone who knows of their condition and did not assist in repelling their evil, for repelling their evil is one of the greatest of obligations.” Majmoo ul-Fataawaa (2/132)

    2. Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan said : Whoever opposes the manhaj (methodology) of the Salaf and praises the methodologies which oppose the manhaj of the Salaf and praises those who are upon it, then he is considered to be upon the actual opposing methodologies himself. It is necessary to advise him and to call him (to the truth), for if he returns to the truth then so, “otherwise he is to be abandoned and cut off…” (al-Ajwibah al-Mufidah, p.105).
    and Other Place

    shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan Said : It is not Permissible to elevate the innovator or to PRAISE HIM even if he has some truth with him. because praising and commending him will spread and prmote his Innovation . the salaf used to warn against Innovator

    Video: https://youtu.be/Ur2LCZrxw7Q


    3. Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah) was asked, “The one who praises Ahl ul-Bidah, is he to be counted amongst them???

    Sheikh Replyed ::: “Yes, there is no doubt about this, the one who praises them is one who actually calls to them”. [Cassette: Aqwaal ul-Ulamaa Fee Sayyid Qutb]

    ---------

    14. After Yasir Qadhi studied for 8 YEARS under top non-Muslim specialists on Islam, even the likes of TONY BLAIR (!), he responds by claiming that he was giving dawah to Tony Blair! Shaikh Salih Al Fawzan explains the ruling on studying Islam under non-Muslims.

    link dead..

    Yasir Qadhi tries to further belittle the status of Islam’s scholars, to lead the people to dismiss the scholars and replace them with Almaghrib Institute instructors and their corrupt dawah of comedy and entertainment in the name of Islamic teachings.



    16. Yasir Qadhi shares his vision of a new breed of Western “scholars” who do not carry the baggage and mistakes of overseas “imported” scholars. Another proof for those who warn against this man’s attempts to separate the Western Muslims



    17.
    Yasir Qadhi is the man behind the curriculum at Almaghrib Institute, and he is directly involved in the education of the Muslims, so we have every right to ask about his education and where he got his understanding from. Be concerned for your din and look to the scholars of your teachers. Do not anyone discourage you from this, since this knowledge is DIN, and we must investigate those who step forward to teach us our din.




    18. In these clips from an official Almaghrib Institute promotional trailer, Yasir Qadhi and his sufi ashari friend Suhaib Webb joke around like little schoolboys.




    19 . Yasir Qadhi given permission that Any one can follow Blind Taqleed with any school of thought Hanafi, shafi, maliki, hambali, he said it is not an issue whether you say ameen or not , whether you do rafaydein or not…?? every one of this position you will find evidences from Sahaba and tabien..

    And Also He said From 6th minute. if your shaikh said do rafyadein then you do Rafaydein . if your shaikh said dont do rafaydein then you dont do rafayadein… what ever you do dont break the community ..





    20.
    Yasir Qadhi attempts to drive a wedge between the Muslims and their scholars by introducing a local vs overseas distinction that leads to complete distrust in the real scholars with complete trust in Yasir’s band of merry entertainers at Almaghrib Institute, propped up as ‘local’ replacements for the ‘far-away unconcerned and ill informed’ scholars. What a plot he hatches! Shadeed Muhammad follows suit, targeting the African American community in similar fashion.




    21. Yasir Qadhi Said Siraj Wahhaj is a ‘LIVING LEGEND

    At an ikhwani ICNA conference, shameless modernist Yasir Qadhi exaggerates his praise of Siraj Wahhaj, shattering his back into scattered shards
