PROPAGATING HARAAM IN THE NAME OF IMAAM GHAZALI RAHIMAHULLAH
Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“We fling the Haqq on Baatil. Then it smashes it’s (i.e. Baatil’s) brains out. Then suddenly it vanishes.” [Surah Ambiyaa, Aayat 18]
Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “This Ilm (of the Shariah) will be borne by the pious of every successive generation. They (the Ulama-e-Haqq) will drive away from it (this Shariah) the interpolations of the deviates, the falsehood of the false-mongers and the interpretations of the ignoramuses.” [Mishkaat]
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:
“Verily, I fear for my Ummah such Aimmah (muftis, molvis and sheikhs) who are mudhilleen (men who mislead others).”
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:
“NAME HIM SO THAT THE PEOPLE ARE SAVED FROM (THE FITNAH WITHIN) HIM…”
Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:
“He who remains silent when the Haqq is trampled upon, is a dumb Shaitaan.”
The protection of the Shariah, the Sunnah and the Imaan of the masses is of paramount importance. It has greater importance than the ‘honour’ of a person who vilifies the Sunnah or who misleads people or who poses a threat to the Imaan of the masses. Shaami explicitly states the permissibility, in fact Wujoob, of naming the culprits:
“The sixth (example of permissibility) is to criticize the majrooheen witnesses and authors (of books for their zandaqah, etc.). This is jaa-iz, in fact Waajib for the protection of the Shariah.”
On the specific issue of naming and exposing the one who misguides others, Imaam Abu Hanifah (Rahmatullah alayh) said to his Student, Imaam Abu Yusuf (Rahmatullah alayh):
“When you are aware of the evil of a person, then do not speak/mention this about him, but search for goodness from him, and speak about it, except in the matter of Deen. If you are aware of it (evil) in his Deen then mention him to the people so that they do not follow him and so that they stay away from him. Rasulullah (Alayhis Salaam) said: ‘Mention the faajir with that in which he indulges so that the people stay away from him even if he is a man of status and position.’
And the person in whom you see corruption of the Deen, mention that (to the people) and do not be concerned of his status, for verily, Allah Ta’ala is your Aid, and your Helper and the Helper of the Deen…”
A Baatil (corrupt) and un-Islamic entity known as Baitul Hikmah will soon be having a Haraam ‘Al-Ghazali Festival’ which is totally in conflict with the Shariah. A few reasons are mentioned below of why this Baitul Hikmah chaps are deviated Mudhilleen who have no shame whatsoever.
REASONS WHY THEY ARE SHAYAATEEN
Below are few reasons mentioned why they are Shayaateen misleading the Ummah:
1 – WOMEN ATTENDING THE MASAAJID
They have advertised a book of a certain deviate, Jasser Auda, regarding women attending the Masaajid. A detailed refutation of the rubbish disgorged by the moron Zindeeq Jasser Auda, is currently being prepared. But, this is not the only issue. The ‘Al-Ghazali’ Festival has a book expo selling dangerous books.
Now, let us see what Imaam Ghazali says. Concurring with Imaam Ghazali Rahimahullah, Allamah Ibn Hajar Haitami Rahimahullah quotes in Al-Fataawa Al-Fiqhiyyatul Kubra the following:
“(The prohibition) is further supported by the statement of Ghazaali in Al-Ihya. He said: ‘It is Waajib to prohibit women from attending the Musaajid for Salaat, for gatherings of knowledge and thikr when there is fear of fitnah, for verily Aishah (radhiyallahu anha) had prohibited them. It was then said to her: ‘Verily, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) did not prohibit women from jamaa-aat (gatherings in the Musjid).’ She then said: ‘If Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had known what the women have introduced after him, he would most certainly have prohibited them.”
This statement appears in Ihyaul Uloom of Imaam Ghazali. Imaam Ghazali Rahimahullah upholds the Fatwa of Hazrat Ayesha Radhiyallahu Anha which the Jumhoor Fuqaha of all four Math-habs cite as a basis for prohibiting women from the Masaajid. The Sahaabah Radhiyallahu anhum and the Four Math-habs agree with the Fatwa of Hazrat Ayesha Radhiyallahu Anha. Alhamdulillah!
However, these ‘Baitul Hikmah’ fellows are advertising the book of Jasser Auda who degrades and discards the Fatwa of Hazrat Ayesha Radhiyallahu Anha. Accordingly, Allamah Ibn Hajar Haitami Rahimahullah has clearly explained the Shaafi Fatwa on women attending the Masaajid which is undoubtedly chagrin to the Mudhilleen, the Salafi anti-Taqleed deviates and all morons:
“And, no one will hesitate in prohibiting women (from the Musjid and emerging from the home in general) except a ghabi (moron) who is a jaahil, and who lacks ability in understanding the subtleties of the Shariah …………The correct verdict is categorical Tahreem (i.e. haraam for women to come to the Musjid), and this is the Fatwa. And, this in a nutshell is our (Shaafi’) Math-hab.”
Insha Allah, the refutation on Jasser Auda will shed more light on this issue.
2 – INTERMINGLING OF THE SEXES
Imaam Ghazali Rahimahullah has mentioned in Ihyaul Uloom that it is Waajib for there to be a separation between men and women which prevents men looking at women and vice versa. Imaam Ghazali uses the word ‘haa-il’ which refers to a curtain or a wall.
The Hijaab which Imaam Ghazali mentioned as explained above, is substantiated by Qur’aan and Hadeeth which is openly violated by ‘Baitul Hikmah’ and the speakers they promote.
Consider Nouman Ali Khan – he does not make proper Hijaab. This applies to all the other speakers as well. Despite this fact, these Baitul Hikmah morons are promoting all these Zindeeq Mudhilleen. Another example is Jasser Auda’s book which the so-called ‘Baitul Hikmah’ Shayaateen are promoting. In his book, he argues that men and women may freely mix. Yet, Imaam Ghazali and all four Math-habs condemn intermingling of the sexes. Hijaab is Waajib for Ghair Mahrams. Those who are advertising Haraam and promoting deviates in the name of Imaam Ghazali, are spineless Shayaateen who don’t seem to have any skin on their faces! These Baitul Hikmah devils should hang themselves in shame!
3 – THE NIQAAB
This is an era of Fitnah without any dispute. Even morons, modernists and Zindeeqs – obviously those whose heads are not stuck in the ground like ostriches – are constrained to admit the multiplied Fitnah of this belated era in comparison to times before!
There is Ijmaa upon the Wujoob of women covering their faces in times of Fitnah. In fact, the Ijmaa is A’mali (practical) as well. Consider the statement of Imaam Ghazali who passed away in the year 505 Hijri which is more than 900 years ago. What would Imaam Ghazali have said about the Fitnah of today???
“For ages, men (have been) with their faces exposed and women have emerged from their homes with the Niqaab!” [Ihyaul Uloom]
Besides the above, there are innumerable quotes from all four Math-habs which prove without doubt that it is Waajib for women to conceal their faces from Ghair-Mahram men. The Wujoob mentioned by the Fuqaha, is irrefutable. But, these Baitul Hikmah Zindeeqs promote Yasmin Mogahed who is an open Faasiqah-Shaitaanah. Yet, their merrymaking festival is in the name of Imaam Ghazali!
In fact, women covered their faces from strange men, even during the era of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Amongst the famous incidents that prove this was during Hajjatul Wida when the wives of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) covered their faces during Ihraam when men passed by and also when Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) instructed his wives to conceal themselves in the presence of the blind Sahaabi.
4 – THE BEARD
Imaam Ghazaali said: “Umar Bin Al-Khattaab (radhiyallahu anhu) and Ibn Abi Ya’la, the Qaadhi of Madinah, rejected the testimony of a man who used to pluck hairs from his beard.” [Ihyaul Uloomiddeen]
Now what will be the ruling of the person who shaves his beard or trims his beard like some of the Fussaaq speakers of the so-called Al-Ghazali Festival – which is hosted, promoted and advertised by Shaytaan and his family!
5 – RAJM
Rajm is stoning the adulterer. There is Ijmaa’ on the validity of Rajm. But Zindeeqs and Murtads reject Rajm. This is about the worst crime which these ‘Baitul Hikmah’ characters are also associated with. They are advertising as ‘sold out’ a book of the Murtad Loauy Fatoohi who rejects Rajm!!! This is clear-cut Kufr and anyone who knowingly promotes or advertises such books, is undoubtedly a Kaafir! They throw themselves out of Islam by rejecting what is part of Islam!
Hadhrat Umar Ibn Khattaab (radhiyallahu anhu) said: “Verily, Allah Ta’ala sent Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) with the Haqq (Truth), and He revealed the Kitaab (Qur’aan) to him. Among the (aayaat) which Allah had revealed to him was the aayat of Rajm. I recited it, understood it and memorized it. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) executed Rajm, and we (the Sahaabah) after him executed Rajm. I fear that due to the long duration of time on people they may say: ‘We do not find Rajm in the Kitaab of Allah.’ Thus, they will go astray by abandoning an injunction which Allah Ta’ala had revealed. (Know) that Rajm is incumbent on the one who commits zina when he or she is (of the quality of) Ihsaan (i.e. married), when evidence has been established or there is pregnancy or confession.” [Bukhaari and Muslim]
Those who reject Rajm are rejecting what Allah has revealed. And this is Kufr! Besides the above, there are many more Haraam acts such as:
⚫ Photography and videography of animate objects.
⚫ Honouring and promoting Fussaaq, Bid’atis, Zindeeqs and Mudhilleen.
⚫ The venues are evil venues. There is nothing Islamic about the Shaitaani so-called ‘Al-Ghazali’ College in Pretoria, the Shaitaani ‘Qurtuba’ so-called Islamic Academy of Joburg, the Shaitaani ‘Islamia’ College of Cape Town, and the Haraam devilish venues of Orient Hall and Hartley Primary!
⚫ They promote female expressionists who are be-hayaa (shameless) and violate the laws of Hijab! All their speakers – male and female – are deviates!
⚫ They sell and advertise mainly rubbish books of Zindeeqs and Mudhilleen.
⚫ They sell Haraam CDs. Zain Bhika and Co. are Fussaaq. We recently published a booklet on the evil of these Nazms, Naats and Qaseedahs!
⚫ The children’s books they sell are Haraam – filled with Haraam animate photos. Khurram Murad is a deviated Faasiq! It is never permissible to read the rubbish (gutha) of this Shaytaan. The ‘Jamaat-e-Islami’ sect in Pakistan and Bangladesh is a deviated sect of the Maudoodi Shaytaan.
⚫ The English translation of the Qur’an by Yusuf Ali has many errors. A whole book has been published on this issue in the past. They also sell some Haraam toys which they have dubbed as ‘Islamic’ toys.
⚫ And many more reasons…
All their speakers are deviated Mudhilleen: Aisha Grey Henry, Seraj Hendriks, Hamzah Mardud, Sharif Al Banna, Mustafa Abu Sway – and even those of the past such as Hasan Al Banna, Umm Zakiyyah, Yasmin Mogahed, Nouman Ali Khan, etc. etc. People should be wary of all the Mudhilleen.
Their speakers don’t make proper Hijaab, allow themselves to be photographed, and mislead the masses with their corrupt views!
It is essential for Muslims to recognize who the Ulama-e-Soo (evil Ulama), Mudhilleen and the ‘scholars for dollars’ are. According to the Hadith, one should exercise care when acquiring knowledge and guidance of the Deen. Study and investigate the aalim/sheikh from whom one acquires the Deen. The talks of the Ulama-e-Soo are fatal for Akhlaaq and Imaan.
The names of these deviated organizations appear on their advert:
➡ Qurtuba Islamic Academy – a deviated academy
➡ The so-called ‘Madinah’ Institute. In the past, an article was published against them exposing their Shia Shaitaaniyyat. (This will be posted in the blog soon Insha Allah).
➡ Spiritual Chords – indulging in videos and photos like other deviates!
➡ Neo Youth Foundation – Misleading the youth!
➡ Marifa Institute & Al-Ghazali College – Shaytaani institutes!
➡ Mizan Institute & Zahraa Institute – stay very far from all these deviates.
➡ ‘Islamic’ Forum – notorious for publishing gutha (nonsense and rubbish)
➡ Al-Zawiyah Institute – corrupt Bidatis!
➡ Sirius FM And Salaam Media – Shaitaani Radio Stations…
➡ ITV – all TV stations are Haraam. Nothing is Islamic!
➡ Awqaf SA – a deviated and Baatil entity.
➡ Afrika Impressions and other deviates too.
IMAAM GHAZAALI WAS A SHAAFI MUQALLID – NOT A MODERNIST SALAFI MORON
It is famously known that Imaam Ghazaali was a Shaafi. But, those having a festival in the name of Imaam Ghazaali, are those who do not advocate Taqleed! They have a Salafi mentality. Furthermore, it is necessary to follow the official opinions of one’s Math-hab.
Selective Taqleed of Imaam Ghazali is the norm amongst deviates and modernists. Being ignorant of the Knowledge of the Shariah, they are constrained to resort to Taqleed of obscure views and opinions which are in contradiction of the Ijma’ of the Ummah.
MUSIC AND IMAAM GHAZAALI
Displaying this selective brand of Taqleed, the modernists resort to a downright dishonest Taqleed of Imaam Ghazaali (Rahmatullah Alayh) in their attempt to ‘prove’ the permissibility of music and musical instruments. While they reject every aspect of Imaam Ghazaali’s ta’leem on all other issues of the Shariah, which militates against their opinions, they are rapid in expressing their Taqleed of his view on singing and music.
After conceding the Ijma’ of the Fuqaha of the Four Math-habs on the prohibition of music and musical instruments, Imaam Ghazaali (Rahmatullah Alayh) proceeds to argue exceptional cases of permissibility. In his argument he does not negate the general rule of prohibition. Rather, he presents a case of permissibility for certain exceptions such as divine songs to engender spiritual ecstasy. However, it has to be reiterated that even his case for limited permissibility is untenable in view of the conflict with the Ijma’ of the Fuqaha which represents the Shariah’s position from the age of the Sahaabah as the evidence has been explained in books written by the Ulama-e-Haq!
For the modernists, Imaam Ghazaali (rahmatullah alayh) has importance in only the issue of music. As far as the entire Shariah is concerned, other than the exception of singing and music, Imaam Ghazaali (rahmatullah alayh) is lumped into the same category of orthodoxy which the modernist deviates dispose and deprecate with a vehemence pleasing to only shaitaan and heretics. Consider the fact that Imaam Ghazaali (rahmatullah alayh) propagates the prohibition of eating food from tables. He advocates eating on the ground as the Sunnah. Eating on tables is bid’ah according to Imaam Ghazaali (Rahmatullah Alayh).
The views of Imaam Ghazaali on Purdah are undoubtedly chagrin to the modernists. In short, Imaam Ghazaali (rahmatullah alayh) is an orthodox Muslim, a ‘fanatic’ like the Molvis except for some latitude on the issue of singing and two musical instruments, the duff and the flute, which he opined to be permissible in certain circumstances with certain restrictive conditions. He avers that it is an innovation to use soap and to eat to one’s heart’s content even though he does not brand these as haraam. Nevertheless, this is the position which he adopts. The modernists who have made a selective Taqleed of Imaam Ghazaali, should henceforth refrain from the utilization of all soap, soap powders and detergents.
“Lick your fingers after eating” commands Imaam Ghazaali. This practice is detestable to the modernist juhhaal who have western kuffaar masters to serve and appease. It is a practice viewed with revulsion by the western intellectual masters of the modernist deviates prowling in the shadows of the community, hence they will not make Taqleed of Imaam Ghazaali in this practice of the Sunnah.
The clinching argument in this debate pertaining to Imaam Ghazaali’s view is that since his view is in conflict with the Ijma’ of the Four Math-habs, it is devoid of substance. It has to be incumbently set aside. A conflicting opinion which developed many centuries after the Sahaabah and the Fuqaha of Khairul Quroon (The First three pious ages of Islam), is not the Fatwa of the Shariah. It is the erroneous opinion of an individual.
It has been said: “Every Aalim slips” just like every good horse slips and falls. Imaam Ghazaali (rahmatullah alayh) has aptly summed up their intellectual derangement with his comment: “Complete blindness is better than oblique vision.”
THIS SO-CALLED ‘AL-GHAZALI’ FESTIVAL IS HARAAM EVENT ACCORDING TO IMAAM GHAZALI RAHIMAHULLAH.
THEY ARE NOT BAITUL HIKMAH. THEY ARE BAITUSH SHAYTAAN (THE HOUSE OF SHAYTAAN) PROMOTING SHAITAANIYYAT, SUPPORTED BY SHAYAATEEN AND ADVERTISING HARAAM FUNCTIONS FOR THE SHAYAATEEN TO ATTEND. HOW HAPPY SHAYTAAN MUST BE WITH THEM!!!
THEY ALL ARE INVITING ALLAH’S ATHAAB. IT IS ABOUT TIME THE SOUTH AFRICAN MUSLIM COMMUNITY BEGIN TO WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. MAY ALLAH PROTECT US ALL. AMEEN
IN CONCLUSION: ALL THESE FESTIVALS AND SHOWS SHAMELESSLY HELD IN THE NAME OF THE AWLIYAA AND THE FUQAHA ARE UNDOUBTEDLY HARAAM!!!
