Electing someone to rule by Kufr

Sahl b. Sa’d as-Saa’idi (ra) who said that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Islam began as something strange, and it shall return to being something strange, so give glad tidings to the strangers.” It was asked, "Who are those strangers, O Messenger of Allah?" He replied, “Those that correct the people when they become corrupt.” [At-Tabarani in al-Kabeer] The resurgence of the Islamic Ummah and her demands to return to the Islamic way of life on all her affairs has become apparent for all the people to witness. This has manifest itself in revival of Islam as a political Deen, which seeks to implement itself. In fact the discussion that Islam is political and the need for an Islamic State in order to apply the Islamic rules and laws that have been detailed in the Quran and the Sunnah are foregone conclusions. The revival of Islam started as something “strange” in the new secular world order but is now whole-heartedly adopted by the Muslim Ummah as her cause. However cer

Clarifying the issue of Taqleed

Taqleed Taqleed linguistically is following others without scrutiny. It is said 'he imitated him in such and such' i.e. he followed him without scrutiny or examination. Legally, Taqleed is acting according to the statements of others without a binding proof or argument, such as the layman's adoption of the opinion of a Mujtahid. Or the Mujtahid's adoption of the opinion of someone of the same stature as him. Taqleed is forbidden in Aqeeda Taqleed (imitation) in the 'Aqeeda (creed) is not allowed because Allah (swt) has censured the Muqallids (imitators) in 'Aqeeda. This is a censure for imitation in belief and not in the adoption of the Shari'ah rules. This is because the subject matter of the verses concerns belief. Its text is specific to the subject of belief and they have no 'illah (reason). He (swt) said: “When it is said to them: "Follow what Allah has sent down." They say: "Nay! We shall follow what we found our fathers follow

Oppressive arrest of Scholar in Yemen

The following information was taken from a press release issued on 3rd June 2006 in Arabic by the workers for Khilafah in the Wilayah of Yemen. It is a draft translation of the main points mentioned in it. Before two weeks and before the feast (of dancing on the wounds of the nation) on the sixteenth anniversary of the Yemeni Unity, the political security apparatus in Hudeida made an abusive arrest for the sheikh and scholar Ibraheem Abdelbari Makbuli Al-Ahdal (58) years old, imam and preacher of Al-Nur Masjid in quarter of Alkal’a Alhamdi street in Hudeida, and the legitimate guardian of Alkal’a quarter, and an employee in the court of first instance in Hudeida. The security apparatuses were not satisfied by arresting the mad!! It spread the space of its crimes to reach the scholars and preachers, it is afraid that they will disturb the spirit of celebration of the wealthy, and annoy their rich processions, and spoil the pleasure of the corrupt, what kind of a system is this, which h

“Creditors have better memories than Debtors”

The proverb in the title has an unfortunate reality. Many Muslims are finding themselves increasingly in debt. Creditors have to persistently remind the debtor of the loan they have ‘forgotten’ to pay. It is extremely rare, that you find the debtor reminding the creditor of his own debt. Often the relationship between the creditor and the debtor turns sour because Islamic principles are not the basis for their financial dealings and disputes. This article discusses the Shariah rules pertaining to loans and debts. Indeed, Islam is very strict upon the Creditor’s motive and the Debtor repaying back what he has borrowed. Characteristics of the Lender The Prophet (saw) said: "Every loan is a sadaqah". Islam encourages those who have enough wealth to give loans to those who request it. However it is important that the creditor or the lender should not seek any material benefit from giving a loan. He must seek the ethical value when advancing money as a loan and not exp

Political Analysis about tensions with Iran

The following is a draft translation from Arabic of a political analysis written by a brother Question: It is known that Iraq used to perform nuclear researches during the monarchal system and that of the Republican system, things went along smoothly, even when fertilization of Uranium was suspended in 2003, the negotiations during the period of Khatami and before in the period of Rafsanjani, all move around discussions and negotiations which do not reach the limit of escalation. But during the period of Ahmadinajad the crisis was aggravated and was transferred from the International Agency to the Security Council, it is still interacting, can we deduct that the aggravation of the crisis is not because of the nuclear researches, as much as the fact that the president in Iran started to sing outside the flock, and that what was accepted by the previous rulers, concerning the dealing with the American policy similar to what took place during the occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, is n
