Sharh At-Takattul Al-Hizbi  (Explanation of  Party Structuring ) by  Sheikh Mohammad Al-Hawarey  (rh).  This is a translation from Sheikh Hawarey's explanation of the unique book by Sheikh Taqiuddin an-Nabhani.  To access part 13 click here Alongside the Islamic, nationalistic and patriotic movements, communist movements were established and they were established upon the basis of matter. These movements followed the communist movements in Russia and were directed by them. Their method was destruction and subversion or sabotage. Its objective, other than establishing communism in the country, is to disrupt the western colonialism in favour of the eastern bloc by describing those who are in charge of the lands as agents of colonialism. It is not the place here to examine communism being established upon materialism or matter however I will briefly state that communism was established upon the Aqueedah of materialism i.e. that there is no deity (crea

Q&A: Ruling related to Covering the feet & Statement of Sultan of Brunie on implementing Shari'a

Bismillahi Al-Rahman AlRaheem Answers to the Questions: 1. Ruling related to Covering the Feet 2. Statement of Sultan of Brunei that He Intends to Implement the Shariah To Ahmad Uais Question:  Asalamu Alaikum our honourable Sheikh, Please when you have time, could you answer my questions? Barak Allah feek. First Question: From the book An-Nitham Al-Ijtima’i fil Islam [The Social System in Islam] 1. It is mentioned in the book on page 50 (English version)… “And there is no need to cover the feet since they are already covered”. Does this statement mean that it is not an obligation to wear something that covers the Awra(feet) underneath the public life dress (Jilbab)? 2. On page 50 in the same book (English version)… “Because the loose and draping dress down to the feet is an obligation”. The word “to” does it not indicate that the feet are not included to be covered by the Jilbab? From the linguistic sense, otherwise the previous paragraph confirms th

Q&A: Regarding Ijtihad in Texts

Bismillahi Al-Rahman AlRaheem The Answer to the Question: Regarding Ijtihad in Texts with Definite Meanings To: Alabid-lilah (Translated) Question: In the book, System of Islam, (Nitham Al- Islam) the following is mentioned, “Therefore the higher objectives to safeguard society were not from man but they are commands and prohibitions from Allah and are fixed and do change or evolve. To safeguard humankind, the mind, human dignity, human soul, personal ownership, the Deen, security, and the State are fixed higher objectives to safeguard society and are not changed or evolved.” The question is: Isn’t it the case that Ijtihad in the constitution will change some text, yet the text above mentions that the text will not change or evolve? Please elaborate this. Barak Allah feek and May He (swt) assist you. Answer: Wa Alaikum us Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu Dear brother, Ijtihad is not applicable to the texts which are definite and defin

Q&A: Disposing of Riba [Interest] Money

Question: Our eminent Ameer, may Allah preserve him and forgive his sins, Assalamu Alaykum wa Ramatullahi wa Barakatuhu Someone opened an interest-based bank account in one of the nowadays existing (usurious) banks and later realized that riba [interest] was added to his account. We know that Allah سبحانه وتعالى says in the explicit part of His Revelation: وَإِنْ تُبْتُمْ فَلَكُمْ رُءُوسُ أَمْوَالِكُمْ لَا تَظْلِمُونَ وَلَا تُظْلَمُونَ "But if you repent, you may have your principal - [thus] you do no wrong, nor are you wronged." (Al-Baqarah: 279) There are contemporary Sheikhs and Scholars who authorize taking this money and not leaving it to the bank, under the pretext of not helping the bank in committing Haram and not committing another Haram by leaving the interest to the Bank. The question is: What to do with the money that has been added to his capital? Is it permissible for him to take the interest-accrued money (riba money) and spend it on the poor

Q&A: Polio Vaccinations and Monopoly

Question: Assalamu alaikum, may Allah سبحانه وتعالى protect you and the Ummah and give victory to the Ummah through you. Please I have two questions and prayed may Allah make it easy for you. 1. What is your view according to Islam concerning polio vaccination that the western worlds and America are claiming to help some third world countries with free-of-charge? 2. Is it allowed according to Shariah to buy farm produce e.g. beans, during period of harvest when they are in surplus in order to store them until the period when the supply is meager and to sell at a profitable or higher price? Jazzak Allahu Khayran Yusuf Adamu, Abuja, Nigeria. Answer: Wa Alaikumu as-Salaam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu First: Vaccination is a medicine, to seek medicine is recommended not obligatory; the evidences for this are: 1. Narrated by Bukhari from Abu Huraira that he said that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: »مَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ دَاءً إِلَّا أَنْزَلَ لَهُ شِفَاءً« &quo

The role of the Masjid In the West- Br. Abu Luqman

The Masjid is not like any other building, it is a House of Allah (SWT). Underneath the marbled bricks and the mosaic tiled walls there lies a mission statement. At the peak of the glossy minarets soaring towards the sky there lies echoes of a call, this is it's soul. If the Masjid could speak about our communities and the company it keeps, what would it say? The Masjid would never speak out of place from what has been revealed in the Quran and Sunnah. Unfortunately, some have spoken at odds with the very soul of the Masjid. The Masjid is asking for something more than it's expansion and more than just it's beautification. You are invited to learn what the role of the Masjid should be, based on the life of our beloved Prophet (saw). "And who are more unjust than those who forbid that Allah's Name be mentioned in Allah's Masjids and strive for their ruin It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them (Allah's Masjids) except in fear" Sur
