The disastarous declaration of Hamas & Fatah amounts to recognising the Jewish state

The following is a translation from arabic with some minor ammendments.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Accord… it’s a disaster - The Declaration of Hamas and Fatah to abide by the decisions of the Arab summits, to honour the international resolutions and regional pacts amounts to recognising the Jews’ State!

It was announced this night that Fatah and Hamas have reached an agreement wherein they have agreed in clear and no uncertain terms to abide by the resolutions of the Arab summits, honour all legal international accords signed by the Palestinian Liberation Organisation. During the negotiations Fatah was represented by Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority, while Hamas was represented by Khalid Misha’l the head of its Political Office and Ismaeel Hanieh, the Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority. All these accords and resolutions accept and recognize the existence of the Jews’ State. This is only a prelude to uncovering the proverbial fig-leaf. If the leaf remains in place, it covers the repulsive maneuvers which will give way to a formal and direct recognition making the fig-leaf redundant!

Indeed the signing of the agreement is a disaster, and its three important factors add to the horridness and insolence to Allah’s deen: First of all, it was signed in the holy month in the holy city, which makes the crime even more culpable:

]وَمَنْ يُرِدْ فِيهِ بِإِلْحَادٍ بِظُلْمٍ نُذِقْهُ مِنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ[

“and whoever inclines to evil actions therein or to do wrong (i.e. practise polytheism and leave Islâmic Monotheism), him We shall cause to taste from a painful torment”. [TMQ.22:25]

The second factor is that this is marked by infighting between the forces of the Palestinian Authority and those of the government resulting in the spilling of innocent blood in order to intimidate the Palestinians and thereby forcing them to accept the tragic and disastrous accord only to prevent blood bring spilled. Thirdly, the agreement to recognize the Jews’ State comes at a time when the level of their offence is heightened and Masjid al Aqsa is being dug and gradually being nibbled in full view of the official and the Authority. And instead of mobilizing their troops for liberating the Masjid al Aqsa, they are busy signing agreement which call for “honouring and abiding” the resolutions which in the first place have been dictated by the entity of the Jews, the brutal usurpers of Masjid al Aqsa, who are responsible for the slaughter and butchery in its precincts.

Oh Muslims! It was always clear to anyone who could reflect and ponder, right since Hamas won the elections (or victory was gifted to it), in the Palestinian elections with such catastrophic margins, in order to facilitate it to taste power and give up on its well-known stance, just as al-Fatah before it. This was a measured step to recognize the entity of the Jews. This was a cunning ploy to tame and regulate its followers, until it formally recognises the state of the Jews on Palestinian lands occupied in 1948 C.E in return for a mere promise of conceding a weak and enervated state-like entity for Palestinians on territory occupied in 1967 C.E or a part of it. This entire process was designed to gain recognition of those Palestinian movements that claim to be Islamic, just as such recognition was obtained by secular and nationalistic Palestinian movements. Thus the Jews would have obtained acceptance by what they themselves call the secular, nationalistic and Islamist parties, and would then announce that their occupation of Palestine has been rendered legitimate and is guaranteed peace and security.

Oh Muslims! Palestine has been the pearl of the Islamic lands, the land of Isra wal Mi’raj, the land of the first of the two Qiblas, the land of the third noble Haram. It can neither be sold nor bought; nor exchanges nor bargained for. Allah has blessed the land and poured His bounties. Allah made Masjid al-Aqsa the host to His Prophet before he raised the banner of Islam high. This was a precursor to the opening of Masjid al-Aqsa and its lands. This land was won over during the reign of the caliph Omar al-Farooq. It was occupied by the crusaders, but was liberated and cleaned of their filth during the reign of Abbasid caliph al-Nasser under the leadership of Salah uddin. It has now been occupied by the Jews, and it shall be liberated from them, Allah willing, just as it was liberated first. This will be accomplished by the Muslim troops’ march towards it:

]وَلِيَدْخُلُوا الْمَسْجِدَ كَمَا دَخَلُوهُ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ[

“(We permitted your enemies) to disgrace your faces and to enter the mosque (of Jerusalem) as they had entered it before,” [TMQ.17:007]

The Muslims today are suffering the Authority and rulers who have no fear of Allah, but are in arms with His enemies. These rulers do not order the troops to march to the battlefields but restrict them to official receptions and protocol ceremonials. It is therefore desired that a state-of-war is maintained with the entity of Jews- the usurpers of Palestine, until the arrival of a Omar al-Farooq or a Khalifah Nasser or a Salahuddin- as has been foretold by the Prophet (saw):

«لَـتُـقَاتِلُنَّ الْـيَهُودَ فَلَتَقْـتُـلُـنَّهُمْ»
"The Jews will fight with you, and you will be given victory over them”.

That is the day when the Muslims will be delighted by the help of Allah (swt) and the entire Palestine will return to the fold of the Islamic lands!

Oh Muslims! Palestine is calling you and seeking your help to save it from the clutches of Jewish occupation. If you cannot or are not capable of this at this point in time, do not accept Jewish occupation even on a hand span of it-because giving up claim on one part results in relinquishing many such parts. Those who disgrace and humiliate, are themselves condemned to ignominy and contempt!

We implore you against etching a shame and disgrace on yourselves, which can not be erased; or subjugation which cannot be forgotten; humiliation that cannot be overcome. Therefore do not give up on your first Qibla, the land of Isra wal Mi’raj of your Prophet, or else, humiliation will be your fate in this world, and severe punishment will be your destiny on the day of Judgement- and that no doubt is a clear loss.

إِنَّ فِي هَذَا لَبَلاَغًا لِقَوْمٍ عَابِدِينَ
“Verily, in this (the Qur’ân) there is a plain Message for people who worship Allâh” [TMQ.21:106]

An advice to Muslims working in the financial sector

Assalam wa alaikum wa rahmatullah wabarakatahu, Dear Brothers & Sisters, We are saddened to see Muslims today even those who practise many of the rules of Islam are working in jobs which involve haram in the financial sector. They are working in positions which involve usurious (Riba) transactions, insurance, the stock market and the like. Even though many of the clear evidences regarding the severity of the sin of Riba are known, some have justified their job to themselves thinking that they are safe as long as they are not engaged in the actual action of taking or giving Riba. Brothers & Sisters, You should know that the majority of jobs in the financial sector, even the IT jobs in this area are haram (prohibited) as they involve the processing of prohibited contracts. If you work in this sector, do not justify your job to yourself because of the fear of losing your position or having to change your career, fear Allah as he should be feared and consider His law regard

Q&A: Age of separating children in the beds?

Question: Please explain the hukm regarding separation of children in their beds. At what age is separation an obligation upon the parents? Also can a parent sleep in the same bed as their child? Answer: 1- With regards to separating children in their beds, it is clear that the separation which is obligatory is when they reach the age of 7 and not since their birth. This is due to the hadith reported by Daarqutni and al-Hakim from the Messenger (saw) who said: When your children reach the age of 7 then separate their beds and when they reach 10 beat them if they do not pray their salah.’ This is also due to what has been narrated by al-Bazzar on the authority of Abi Rafi’ with the following wording: ‘We found in a sheet near the Messenger of Allah (saw) when he died on which the following was written: Separate the beds of the slave boys and girls and brothers and sisters of 7 years of age.’ The two hadiths are texts on the separation of children when they reach the age of 7. As for the

Please refer to the original Arabic for exact meanings. Question: What is the Shari’ ruling in singing or listening to songs?  What is the hukm of using musical instruments and is its trade allowed? I request you to answer in detail with the evidences? Answer: The Imams ( Mujtahids ) and the jurists have differed on the issue of singing and they have varying opinions such as haraam (prohibited), Makruh (disliked) and Mubah (permissible), the ones who have prohibited it are from the ones who hold the opinion of prohibition of singing as a trade or profession, and a similar opinion has been transmitted from Imam Shafi’i, and from the ones who disliked it is Ahmad Ibn Hanbal who disliked the issue and categorised its performance under disliked acts, a similar opinion has been tran
