Translated by Abu Afnaan Muhammad Abdullah (حفظهالله)

This highly informative article is a compilation by our Shaykh ‘Badr ibn Muhammad al-Badr al-‘Anazy (حفظهالله) regarding several pertinent issues related to the issue I’tikaaf.

Ruling on Itikaf in a Masjid other than the Three Holy Masjids – Ibn Baz Fatwas

Fatwas of Ibn Baz

Q. What is the degree of authenticity of the Hadith: There should be no I`tikaf (seclusion for worship in a Masjid) except in the Three Masjids (mosques) If it is authentic, does it actually mean that there should be no I`tikaf except in the Three Masjids (i.e., the Sacred, Prophet’s, and Al-Aqsa)?

A. It is valid to observe I`tikaf in any Masjid other than the three Masjids, on condition that congregational Salah (Prayer) is established therein. For, if this condition is not fulfilled, it becomes invalid to observe I`tikaf there.

However, this does not apply if a person vows to observe I`tikaf in any of the three Masjids, for they are then obliged to fulfill their vow. May Allah guide us all to do what pleases Him.

Making peace treaties with the Jews or other Kuffaar(disbelievers) does not necessitate supporting and befriending them – Ibn Baz

Q 1: Some people understood from your answer to the first question in the interview about concluding treaties with the Jews that signing a peace treaty or truce with the Jews who captured the lands and committed transgressions is unconditionally permissible. They also understood that they have to support and befriend the Jews. Making peace with them requires the Muslims not to stir hatred and disavowal of the Jews in the educational curriculum or mass media in the Muslim countries. The world is now witnessing a phase of international reconciliation and peaceful coexistence. It is not allowed to arouse feelings of religious hatred among people. Would you please explain this issue.

A 1: Making peace with the Jews or other disbelievers does not necessitate support and friendship. It ensures that both sides enjoy safety and peace and may engage in other dealings such as sale, purchase, and exchange of ambassadors. These actions do not require the Muslims to support or befriend the disbelievers.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) concluded peace treaties with the people of Makkah. This act did not force the Muslims to befriend or support the pagans, but the feelings of hatred remain until the Opening of Makkah and people entered into the religion of Allah (Exalted be He) in multitudes.

Similarly, he (peace be upon him) made peace with the Jews of Al-Madinah for an unlimited period when he emigrated to Al-Madinah. He (peace be upon him) used to buy things from them, talk to them and call them to Islam but it was not necessary to befriend or support them. Furthermore, the Prophet (peace be upon him) died while his armor was in pawn with a Jew in return for food.

When Banu Al-Nadir, a Jewish tribe, committed high treason, they were expelled from Al-Madinah. When Qurayzhah breached the covenant and joined a besieging army of the enemy that came from Makkah to fight the Prophet (peace be upon him) on the Day of Ahzab, the Prophet (peace be upon him) fought them killing their leaders and taking their women and offspring captives. When Sa`d Ibn Mu`adh (may Allah be pleased with him) judged them, he judged that the men must be killed and the women and children taken captives. So, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said that he judged according to the judgment of Allah (Exalted be He) from above the seven heavens.

The Muslims among the Sahabh and their followers often declared a truce with the Christians and other non-Muslims without having to support or befriend them.

Allah (Glorified be He) says, Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn [Sooratul-Maa‘idah 5:82]

Allah (Glorified be He) also says: Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrâhîm (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people: “Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allâh: we have rejected you, and there has started between us and you hostility and hatred for ever until you believe in Allâh Alone” [Sooratul-Mumtahinah 60:4]

He (Glorified be He) also says, O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliyâ’ (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Auliyâ’ of each other. And if any amongst you takes them (as Auliyâ’), then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust).[Sooratul-Maa‘idah 5:51]

Allah (Glorified be He) also says: You (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) will not find any people who believe in Allâh and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), even though they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred (people).[Sooratul-Mujaadilah 58:22]

There are many Ayahs that convey the same meaning.

Here is another situation showing that making peace with the Jews or other disbelievers, when necessary, does not necessitate supporting and befriending them. When the Prophet (peace be upon him) conquered Khaybar, he made peace with the Jews and agreed that they take care of the palms and fields and the harvest was to be halved between them and the Muslims. This agreement was unlimited and they stayed in Khaybar under this agreement as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, We will let you stay on this (condition), as long as we will.[1] According to another narration, “We will let you stay, as long as Allah will let you stay.” [2] They stayed there until `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) evacuated them. It is narrated that when `Abdullah ibn Rawahah (may Allah be pleased with him) estimated the value due on the fruits of the palm trees one year, they alleged that the value was unjust. He (may Allah be pleased with them) told them, “By Allah! My hatred for you and my love for the Muslims will never make me treat you unjustly. If you will, accept my bulk assessment of the outcome that I made for you; otherwise we accept it all.”

Hence, these situations indicate that making peace treaties and truce with the enemies of Allah does not require us to support or befriend them, as some of those who are not aware of the rulings of the purified Shari`ah believe.

It should be clear that making peace treaties with the Jews or other disbelievers does not require us to change the educational curriculum or other dealings based on support and befriending. May Allah grant us success.

* The ruling on whoever fasts but does not pray – Permanent Committee & Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen


I have witnessed some of the Muslim youth fasting, but they do not pray. Is the fast of the person who fasts but does not pray accepted? I have heard some of the preachers telling these youth to break their fast and not to fast, as he who does not pray has no fast?


Whomever the prayer is obligatory upon and he intentionally abandons it, rejecting its obligation, then he has disbelieved according to the consensus of the scholars. Whoever abandons it due to being lax and lazy about it, then he has disbelieved according to the correct opinion from the opinions of the people of knowledge. When it is ruled that he is a disbeliever, then his fasting and other acts of worship are nullified. This due to Allah’s statement: And if they had associated partners with Allah, all that they used to do would have been of no benefit to them.

However such a person should not be ordered to abandon fasting. This is because his fasting will only increase him in goodness and closeness to the religion. Also, due to the fear of his heart, it is hoped that it will lead him to return to the performance of the prayer and repentance from abandoning it. And success is from Allah.

May Allah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions.

[Book Reco] The Devil’s Deceptions (Talbis Iblis): By Imam Abu’l Faraj Ibn Al Jawzi

The Devil's Deceptions (Talbis Iblis) - By Imam Abul Faraj Ibn Al Jawzi

Paperback 592 Pages
ISBN : 9780904336051
Publisher : Dar as-Sunnah

About The Book

It is from enmity and hopelessness of the devil that his endeavour to misguide mankind from the Path of Allah will persist. This misguidance takes many shades and forms; be it from planting seeds of doubt, or giving rise to deviant ideas antithetical to the sacred teachings of Islam, and essentially becoming entangled within regressive intellectual and rhetorical discourses. The Ummah has suffered varying levels of deviation, some of which remain prevalent today, while more continue to be uncovered – and such is the impact of delusive plottings of the devil and his allies.

This book is the sixth instalment from Dar as-Sunnah of the illustrious Imam, Abu’l-Faraj Ibn Jawzi. Being a complete translation of his well-known and prized work, Ibn Jawzi enumerates within it, many of the mechanisms and modus operandi used by the devil in deceiving and leading mankind away from the Straight Path. It is of particular value and importance because only by unearthing and accentuating some of the traps of the devil, can mankind avoid them as well as navigate others away from falling prey to his harm.

Speaking about the devil and his plotting, the author wrote that, “he was only able to do so while creeping during the night of ignorance. Had the dawn of knowledge shone on him, he would have been exposed. Thus I decided to warn from his plots for identifying evil is a form of warning from it.”

This translation of Tablees Iblees will provide important analysis in developing self-awareness and critical thinking to ward off many deceptions of the devil, which have plagued mankind from the time of Adam. For such reasons alone, this work is a valuable addition to the scholarly discourse it presents to the English speaking world.

About the Author:

‘Abu’l-Faraj Jamal al-Din Abdul Rahman ibn Ali Ibn Muhammad ibn Ali Ibn Ubayd Allah Ibn al-Jawzi al-Qurashi al Tamimi al Bakri al-Baghdadi al-Hanbali (509/510-597) was the Imam of the Hanbalis and foremost orator of kings and commoners in his time, whose gatherings reportedly reached one hundred thousand.

A hadith master, philologist, commentator of Qur’an, expert jurist, physician, and historian of superb character and exquisite manners.
Ibn al-Jawzi was a prolific author of over seven hundred books.

He was the author of a vast number of works of which several have been printed in recent times. He was famous as a preacher and the traveller Ibn Jubair gives an enthusiastic account of two of his sermons heard in Baghdad.

He was born in 509/510 AH in the city of Baghdad and grew up studying under the leading scholars of the time, He also was noted for his scholarship in the fields of history, linguistics, tafseer and fiqh. In fact, he became the leading scholar of the Hanbali Madhab of his time and played an important role in reviving and spreading it, especially after the become a favorite of the Abassid Caliph, al Mustadi

Ibn al-Jawzi was severely tried towards the end of his life when his criticism of Shaykh `Abd al-Qadir al-Gilani – his senior of forty years – led to accusations made against him to the Sultan al-Nasir by the Shaykh’s children and supporters. He was taken from Baghdad to the city of Wasit where he remained imprisoned for five years.

Ibn al-Jawzi passed away in 597 AH, two years after his release from Imprisonment.

[Book Reco] The Explanation of the Sufficiency in Creed (Lum’at-ul-‘Itiqaad) : Shaikh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-‘Uthaimeen

The Explanation of the Sufficiency in Creed (Lum'at-ul-'Itiqaad) : Shaikh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-'Uthaimeen

In this book, we present the classical treatise on Creed of Imaam Ibn Qudaamah Al-Maqdisee, rahimahullaah, known as Lum’at-ul-‘Itiqaad, which is studied all over the Muslim world. Imaam Muhammad bin Saalih Al-‘Uthaimeen, rahimahullaah, has provided an in depth explanation for the points touched on by the author in a clear and simple manner. Furthermore, the narrations mentioned in the book have been verified and lengthy and extensive footnotes have been provided to make this book a valuable source of reference.

Shaikh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-‘Uthaimeen said in his introduction to this book: ‘This is a brief commentary of the book ‘Lum’at-ul-‘Itiqaad”, written by Abu Muhammad ‘Abdullaah bin Ahmad Ibn Qudaamah Al-Maqdisee (rahimahullaah), who was born in Sha’baan in 541H in a village from the districts of Nablis (present-day Palestine) and who died on the day of ‘Eed-ul-Fitr in 620H.

In this book, the author (rahimahullaah) gathered together the main points of the Islaamic Creed (‘Aqeedah). For this reason, the Board of the Educational Institutes assigned this book to be studied and taught during the second semester of the first year of study, so that it may serve as a pillar upon which one can establish his Creed at this stage.

Because I saw the importance of this book in terms of the topics it touches upon, its methodology and the lack of there being any explanation for it, I became determined, while seeking assistance from Allaah and hoping that He grant me correctness in intention and action, to put forth some words on it, in the attempt to clarify its ambiguous parts, explain its meanings and bring to light its main points.’

No doubt this book is of great importance for the Muslim with regard to establishing the correct Creed. This book is deserving of being taught and studied so that it may serve as a foundation for both the students of knowledge and the common Muslims. The topics touched upon by the author relate to the authentic Creed and Methodology, which all Muslims are obligated to have knowledge of. Consequently, we encourage everyone to purchase a copy of this magnificent book.

The Khilafah has Arrived. . . !!!- By Shaykh Muhammad bin Umar Bazmool

The Khilafah has Arrived. . . !!![1] – By Shaykh Muhammad bin Umar Bazmool
Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Shaykh Muhammad bin Umar Bazmool wrote:

‘My Noble Muslim brother, do not let yourself be deceived by the statement ‘Khilafah Rashida’ (Guided Caliphate), and the claim to having established the ‘Khilafah Rashida’!!

Can the shadow be straight if the twig is bent!?

Can guidance, and the truth, and establishing the Deen be reached by way of warring against the Deen and opposing it!?

Have you ever asked yourself: the ‘Khilafah Rashida’ has been absent for hundreds of years and there has not been from the Muslim scholars who have called and claimed to establishing a state and then these scholars going on to  rebelling against the established authority of the leaders in command at that time?

Will the Ummah of Islaam gather together upon misguidance?

Can you imagine: that if this matter was true that the Muslims or the scholars did not know about ‘Khilafah Rashida’ (Guided Caliphate), and these people know about it at this time?

Will the ‘Khilafah Rashida’ become a reality by rebelling against the leaders in authority, and invalidating the contract which is between them and their people while we have the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam saying, as what is brought from Ibn Abbas -Radhi Allaahu anhumma:

مَنْ رَأَى مِنْ أَمِيرِهِ شَيْئًا يَكْرَهُهُ فَلْيَصْبِرْ عَلَيْهِ فَإِنَّهُ مَنْ فَارَقَ الْجَمَاعَةَ شِبْرًا فَمَاتَ إِلَّا مَاتَ مِيتَةً جَاهِلِيَّةً.

From the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam– who said:

‘Whoever sees from his leader something which he dislikes then he should be patient upon that, indeed whoever separates  himself from the Jammah (the collective Muslim Ummah) a hand span and dies then he dies the death of ignorance.’

Collected by Bukhari in ‘Kitab al-Fitn’, chapter the saying of the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam: ‘you will see. ..’ Hadeeth no. 7054 & by Muslim in ‘Kitab al-Imaraah, chapter the obligation of adhering to the Jammah of the Muslims when Fitn appear, Hadeeth no. 1848.

From Nafa’ who said: Abdullaah bin Umar came to Abdullaah bin Muteea’ when he was in command of a place called al Hurra at the time of Yazeed bin Muwaweeya and said:

اطْرَحُوا لِأَبِي عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ وِسَادَةً!

‘Throw a pillow for Abu Abdurahman to recline upon.’

Abdullaah ibn Umar said:

إِنِّي لَمْ آتِكَ لِأَجْلِسَ أَتَيْتُكَ لِأُحَدِّثَكَ حَدِيثًا سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- يَقُولُهُ،
سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- يَقُولُ:

He answered:  ‘I did not come to you to sit with you. I came to you to narrate a hadeeth which I heard the Messenger of Allaah saying, I heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam saying:

مَنْ خَلَعَ يَدًا مِنْ طَاعَةٍ لَقِيَ اللَّهَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ لَا حُجَّةَ لَهُ وَمَنْ مَاتَ وَلَيْسَ فِي عُنُقِهِ بَيْعَةٌ مَاتَ مِيتَةً جَاهِلِيَّةً.

‘Whoever casts off his hand from obedience then he meets Allaah on the day of judgement without any justification and whoever dies and he does not have allegiance upon his shoulders dies the death of ignorance.’

Collected by Muslim in ‘Kitab al-Imaraah’, chapter the obligation of adhering to the Jammah of the Muslims when Fitn appear. Hadeeth no.1851.

Will the ‘Khilafah Rashida’ be established upon making the sacred blood of the innocent to be spilt, so that the people of Islaam are killed, and the people of Shirk and worshippers of idols are served. The Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam-said as is brought from Abdullah bin Umar:

(إِنَّ مِنْ وَرَطَاتِ الْأُمُورِ الَّتِي لَا مَخْرَجَ لِمَنْ أَوْقَعَ نَفْسَهُ فِيهَا سَفْكَ الدَّمِ الْحَرَامِ بِغَيْرِ حِلِّهِ)
Indeed from the critical problematic matters from which there is no exit for the one who immerses himself into them, is spilling unlawful blood without it being allowed. ‘

Collected by Bukhari in ‘Kitab ad-Deeyaat’, Chapter the saying of Allaah <<whoever kills a believer intentionally>>  Hadeeth no. 6866.

From Abdullaah who said that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam-said:

(لَا يَحِلُّ دَمُ امْرِئٍ مُسْلِمٍ يَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَأَنِّي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَّا بِإِحْدَى ثَلَاثٍ: الثَّيِّبُ الزَّانِي وَالنَّفْسُ بِالنَّفْسِ وَالتَّارِكُ لِدِينِهِ الْمُفَارِقُ لِلْجَمَاعَةِ).

‘The blood of a Muslim may not be legally spilt[2] other than in one of three [instances]: the married person who commits adultery; a life for a life; and one who forsakes his religion and abandons the Jammah.’

Collected by Bukhari in ‘Kitab ad-Deeyaat’, Chapter the saying of Allaah <<a life for a life>>  Hadeeth no. 6878 and by Muslim in ‘Kitab al-Qasama wal Muharibeen wal Qassas wa Deeyat, Hadeeth no. 1676.

Do you not know my noble Muslim brother that by you carrying out this opposition you are aiding the enemies of Allaah – the Magnificent & the Most High-  in their plans and strategies in busying the people of Islaam and cause them to become weak, and cause them to overpower each other,  so that they do not develop or bring to reality the glory which they were once upon!?

Will the forth coming ‘Khilafah Rashida’ be upon the hands of those who have enmity to the Sunnah and its people, they do not regard the ties with the people of the Sunnah, either of kinship or of covenant with them!?

Will the establishment of the Deen be a reality at the hands of one who is ignorant of the Deen and does not know the Deen.  Wisdom says: ‘a lost thing cannot be given?’

Be careful do not become entangled and then become regretful,  when regret will be of no benefit!

Know with certainty that the ‘Khilafah Rashida’ is coming however its path is by returning to the Deen, and by following what the Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- and his Companions Radhi Allaahu anhumm– were upon.

The way to Change the situation is by changing what is with oneself,  Allaah – the Magnificent & the Most High- said:

﴿إِنَّ اللهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُ وَمَا لَهُمْ مِنْ دُونِهِ مِنْ وَالٍ﴾

<< Allaah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allaah). But when Allaah wills a people’s punishment, there can be no turning back of it, and they will find besides Him no protector. >> [Ra’ad: 11]

Allaah has promised to grant authority on the earth, with strength and security for whoever worshipped Him alone and did not associate anything with Him,  and did righteous actions, Allaah – the Magnificent & the Most High-  said:

‏﴿وَعَدَ اللَّـهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْ‌ضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْ‌تَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا ۚ يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِ‌كُونَ بِي شَيْئًا ۚ وَمَن كَفَرَ‌ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ﴾

<< Allaah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islaam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fâsiqoon (rebellious, disobedient to Allaah).>> [Noor: 55]

So we must bring this in to reality of we want the ‘Khilafah Rashida’, Allaah is the Guardian to give success.’

[2]Who implements the ruling of punishments?

Shaykh Salih ‘Ala Shaykh said:

‘Here is an issue connected to this hadeeth: if there is a country where there is no leader or Muslim ruler who can carry out that verdict, then is it allowed for any Muslim to carry out its ruling if one of these verdicts are established?

The answer: No, as is the saying of the general people of knowledge.  They make the condition for carrying out rulings which are connected to the allowance of spilling blood, wealth and honour, or things similar to this, that it is only for the leader, and if there is no leader then it is not allowed for anyone to carry it out.’

He continues:

‘That he is in a country where there is no-one who can carry out the rulings of Allaah –Jala wa ‘Uulaa – then it is not allowed to carry out the rulings of capital punishment, because this is for the Muslim leader.

The Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- was in Makkah and the Companions were in some countries where the Sharia’ was not established,  however, they did not carry out capital punishment, likewise the scholars were in some countries, like they were in the lands of the al-Ubaydeeyah and those similar to them, and the scholars did not carry out punishments of death and those type of punishments similar to it.’
