بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمIssuance of UN Resolution that Palestine is only the West Bank and the Gaza Strip: Is that Condolence with Echoes of Lament or a Celebration of a Courageous Stand?
Last night a resolution was issued by the United Nations General Assembly declaring Palestine a non-member observer state on its borders maximum up to the 4th of June 1967: "the West Bank and the Gaza Strip." The resolution was celebrated by the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, especially by the Fateh Party, hailed by Mahmoud Abbas and Saeb Arekat as a celebration for Palestine and a historic day. It was endorsed by Hamas in the Gaza Strip as Khalid Meshaal and Ismail Haniyeh felicitated Abbas' effort! That resolution, which eliminates Palestine of 1948 forever as told by Abbas, was regarded by the people as a championed and manifested victory! Had the resolution been imposed on them, we would have said that they are compelled but they pursued it to be issued, humiliating them. Rather the two archenemies, Fateh and Hamas, joined with one another with this evil in which they had never allied on any good in the past! Allah (swt) has truly said:
(( أَفَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ فَتَكُونَ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ يَعْقِلُونَ بِهَا أَوْ آذَانٌ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى الْأَبْصَارُ وَلَكِنْ تَعْمَى الْقُلُوبُ الَّتِي فِي الصُّدُورِ))
"Have they not travelled through the land, and have they hearts wherewith to understand and ears wherewith to hear? Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow blind"
Perhaps concepts have upturned; values have reversed with the majority of Palestine being sold cheaply to the Jews, but for a price -- a tiny part of Palestine to be named a Non-Member State on paper. Such an act is being celebrated as wedding instead of being a condolence and a deep painful wound!
May Allah bless the Prince of Poets Shawki who, commenting on what Mustafa Kemal did nearly ninety years ago when he abolished the illuminated Islamic Khilafah and replaced it with the dark secular republic considering that as a victory had said,
"عادَت أَغاني العُرسِ رَجعَ نُواحِ وَنُعيـــتِ بَينَ مَعالِمِ الأَفــراحِ"
"The wedding songs have become the echo of lamentation and the death is announced at the times of weddings"
They take steps as such, celebrate our tragedies, humiliate themselves and pursue to obtain an international legal resolution as the non-member state of Palestine. Is it not the one that was conquered by Omar (may Allah be pleased with him), was liberated by Salahuddin (may Allah's mercy be upon him) and safeguarded by Khalifah Abdul Hamid (may Allah's mercy be upon him)?? As if it is not the same Palestine which they want, rather it is only a fraction. And through this resolution it was done! In order to give access to the traitors of the Ummah portraying this resolution as a victory! America which was behind many of those who voted in favor of resolution showed its opposition to the resolution in order to provide the term "defense" to Abbas and Arekat that they attended the United Nations General Assembly despite the will of America! They know they are liars. If America orders them to sit down, they sit motionless, but America desired an international resolution ending any project except the two-state project being sponsored by the US! Thus the betrayal, deception, and misinformation became mangled together, thereby enabling the way for international resolution to declare the loss of the majority of Palestine to be championed as victory! The Messenger of Allah (saw) in the Hadeeth, narrated by Ibn Majah from Abu Hurayrah, spoke the truth when he (saw) said:
"سَيَأْتِي عَلَى النَّاسِ سَنَوَاتٌ خَدَّاعَاتُ، يُصَدَّقُ فِيهَا الْكَاذِبُ، وَيُكَذَّبُ فِيهَا الصَّادِقُ، وَيُؤْتَمَنُ فِيهَا الْخَائِنُ، وَيُخَوَّنُ فِيهَا الْأَمِينُ، وَيَنْطِقُ فِيهَا الرُّوَيْبِضَةُ »، قِيلَ: وَمَا الرُّوَيْبِضَةُ؟ قَالَ: الرَّجُلُ التَّافِهُ فِي أَمْرِ الْعَامَّةِ"
"A time will come upon people when they will employ deceit in everything. At that time the liars will be declared as the Truthful and the Truthful will be condemned as liars. The traitor will be regarded as upright while the upright will be regarded as betrayer; The "Ruwaibadha" will represent (lead) the people." It was asked who the "Ruwaibadha" were? He (saw) said: "They were the incompetent, unscrupulous and insignificant people. They will attend to the important matters pertaining to the public and make decisions."
Nevertheless, we say to these people who wanted to "dwarf" Palestine through international resolutions as well as to those who usurped Turkey from the Islamic Khilafah becoming a secular country... we say to all of them that the Khilafah and Palestine have a great Ummah who will no longer be harmed by its illegitimate sons... The Khilafah and Palestine have a sincere and faithful party, InshaAllah. Hizb ut Tahrir has vowed, with and alongside the Ummah, to restore these two great aims: to reestablish Khilafah and liberate Palestine, InshaAllah. As the sincere and truthful Prophet (saw) has given glad tidings of their restoration when he (saw) said, "ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةٌ عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّة" "then the Khilafah will return on the method of Prophethood" as reported by Ahmad and Attayalsi and the Messenger (saw) also said: "لَتُقَاتِلُنَّ الْيَهُودَ، فَلَتَقْتُلُنَّهُمْ" "You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them" reported by Imam Muslim.
(( وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ * بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ))
"And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice * with the help of Allah, He helps whom He wills, and He is the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful."

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.
