خُطْبَةُ الْحَاجَةِ

إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ لِلّٰهِ، نَحْمَدُهُ، وَنَسْتَعِينُهُ، وَنَسْتَغْفِرُهُ، وَنَعُوذُ بِاللهِ مِنْ شُرُورِ أَنْفُسِنَا، وَمِنْ سَيِّئَاتِ أَعْمَالِنَا، مَنْ يَهْدِهِ اللهُ فَلاَ مُضِلَّ لَهُ، وَمَنْ يُضْلِلْ فَلاَ هَادِيَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ.

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلاَ تَمُوتُنَّ إِلاَّ وَأَنْتُمْ مُسْلِمُونَ.﴾ [آل عمران: 102]

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ نَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالاً كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً وَاتَّقُوا اللهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءَلُونَ بِهِ وَالْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ اللهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا.﴾ [النساء: 1]

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللهَ وَقُولُوا قَوْلاً سَدِيدًا. يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَمَنْ يُطِعِ اللهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا.﴾ [الأحزاب: 71-70]

أَمَّا بَعْدُ: فَإِنَّ أَصْدَقَ الْحَدِيثِ كِتَابُ اللهِ، وَخَيْرَ الْهَدْيِ هَدْيُ مُحَمَّدٍ، وَشَرَّ الْأُمُورِ مُحْدَثَاتُهَا، وَكُلَّ مُحْدَثَةٍ بِدْعَةٌ، وَكُلَّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلاَلَةٌ، وَكُلَّ ضَلاَلَةٍ فِي النَّارِ.


Khutbatul Hjah (The Sermon of Necessity)

All praise is due to Allh. We praise Him, seek His help, and seek His forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allh from the evil within ourselves and our evil deeds. Whoever Allh guides, there is no one who can led him astray, and whoever Allh leads astray, then there is no one who can guide him. I bear witness there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship- except Allh, He is One and He has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His Rasl (Messenger).

O you who believe! Fear Allh as He should be feared, and die not except as Muslims. (l-i Imrn 3/102)

O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person, and from him He created his wife, and from them both He created many men and women and fear Allh through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and beware of severing the ties of kinship. Surely, Allh is Ever an All-Watcher over you. (an-Nis 4/1)

O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allh and fear Him, and speak the truth. He will set your deeds right and forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allh and His Messenger, has truly achieved a great triumph. (al-Ahzb 33/70-71)

Amm Bad (to Proceed):

Verily, the most truthful speech is the Kalmullh (Speech of Allh), the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam. The worst of affairs are the newly invented matters. Every newly invented matter is a Bidah (religious innovation), and every Bidah is a Dallah (misguidance), and every misguidance is in the Nr (Hellfire).[1]

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Our Dawah (Call)

Our sole purpose primarily, is to circulate the Aqidah of Tawhid everywhere we are able to reach. This is the call of all the Rasul (messenger) and Nabi (prophet) from Adam (alayhi salam) to the Khatamul Anbiya (the last of the prophets) Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), striving against all types of Kufr and Shirk that nullify Tawhid and exposing fake deities and Taaghout which call people to worship them. Allah Taala states the following Ayah in this regards:

وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ كُلُّهُ لِلّٰهِ فَإِنِ انْتَهَوْا فَإِنَّ اللّٰهَ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ
And fight them on until there is no more persecution, and religion becomes Allah's in its entirety. (al-Baqarah 2/193; al-Anfal 8/39)

In addition, the Aqidah of al-Wara wal Bara which is one of the most important Rukn (pillar) of Tawhid, the Takfir of the Mushrikin fixed to the Aqidah of al-Wara wal Bara, accordingly the limits of Imaan and Kufr becoming evident is one of the hallmarks of our Dawah. The removal of the doubts regarding the matters of Aqidah, especially in the matters of Imaan and Kufr that are innovated by the Dai (caller) of Baatil (falsehood) is also one of our purposes. We aspire to establish the Wasat (medium) Aqidah of Ahlus Sunna wal Jamaah that is far from Ifrat (taking maters to the extreme) and Tarfit (neglecting its true meaning).

After Tawhid, the most important topic we call to is the Sunnah. Connotation especially to the matters of Aqidah but not limited to it; accepting and practicing every matter of Islam as Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and his Ashaab counseled and lived, also rejecting every Bidah innovated after them. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) in a Sahih (authentic) Hadith stated that his Ummah (nation) will be divided into seventy-three sects and that only one of them will be saved. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) named them as Firqai Naajiyah (the Saved Group) and described their affair stating:


مَا أَنَا عَلَيْهِ وَأَصْحَابِي
(Those who follow) my path and the path of my Ashaab (companions)... 2

The Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah is the only group that follows this noble path.

No individual or group entered the saved group by merely identifying themselves as Ahlus Sunnah. The most apparent quality of the Ahlus Sunnah is submitting to the Salafus Salihin (the righteous predecessors) whom are the best of the people and the first three generations (of beginning of the Islam) and staying away from the Bidah and Munkar (evil) that was innovated by the Khalaf (later generations). As narrated in the Sahih (of Bukhari) from Imran bin Husayn (radiyallahu anh) Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) stated:


خَيْرُ أُمَّتِي قَرْنِي، ثُمَّ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَهُمْ، ثُمَّ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَهُمْ، - قَالَ عِمْرَانُ فَلاَ أَدْرِي: أَذَكَرَ بَعْدَ قَرْنِهِ قَرْنَيْنِ أَوْ ثَلاَثًا - ثُمَّ إِنَّ بَعْدَكُمْ قَوْمًا يَشْهَدُونَ وَلاَ يُسْتَشْهَدُونَ وَيَخُونُونَ وَلاَ يُؤْتَمَنُونَ، وَيَنْذُرُونَ وَلاَ يَفُونَ، وَيَظْهَرُ فِيهِمُ السِّمَنُ
The best of my followers are those living in my generation (i.e. my contemporaries). And then those who will follow the latter. -Imran (radiyallahu anh) added: I do not remember whether he mentioned two or three generations after his generation- There will come after you, people who will bear witness without being asked to do so, and will be treacherous and untrustworthy, and they will vow and never fulfill their vows, and fatness will appear among them."3

After Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and his Ashaab, the Rabbani Ulama took on the mission of calling to Tawhid and the Sunnah fitting the Hadith:

الْعُلَمَاءُ خُلَفَاءُ الأَنْبِيَاءِ إِنَّ الأَنْبِيَاءَ
The scholars are the successors of the prophets."4

At this point, our goal is to become a bridge between Ilm and the people by conveying the legacy concerning the Ilm (sacred knowledge) of the Rabbani Ulama, which attained the mission of calling to Tawhid and the Sunnah after the prophets. The source of this Ilm reaches Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) through Jibril-i Amin (alayhi salam) to the Lord of the Worlds (Jalla wa Jalaluhu). The Ulama will represent this Ilm until the Day of Qiyamah (Doomdsay). Since Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) stated:

لاَ يَزَالُ مِنْ أُمَّتِي أُمَّةٌ قَائِمَةٌ بِأَمْرِ اللّٰهِ، لاَ يَضُرُّهُمْ مَنْ خَذَلَهُمْ، وَلاَ مَنْ خَالَفَهُمْ، حَتَّى يَأْتِيَهُمْ أَمْرُ اللّٰهِ وَهُمْ عَلَى ذٰلِكَ
"A group of people amongst my followers will remain obedient to Allah's orders and they will not be harmed by anyone who will not help them or who will oppose them, till Allah's Order (the Last Day) comes upon them while they are still on the right path."5

That is why it is also our goal to spread the books of the Ulamaa (pl. Alim; scholars) whom had been stand bearers of the Aqidah of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah throughout history and the Ilm that they inherited from Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). In order to reach this goal; we take the Manhaj (methodology of attaining Ilm) of the Salafus Salihin whom are praised by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) as base for us. We would like to convey the legacy of the Aimmah (pl. Imam) of Hadith and Sunnah who had not been affected from Kalaam (theological rhetoric) and philosopy, persistent upon the Aqidah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and his Ashaab, in short; the scholars among the Firqa-i Najiyaah and Taifatul Mansura (Victorious Group).

Our call (Inshallah) will never be calling people to our own views that have no base from the Salaf nor to groups that have been consituted by the Asabiyyah (tribalism/nationalism) of Jaahiliyyah (the prelslaamic days of ignorance).

Tawfiq (success) is lies in Allah Taala...

Muqaddimah (Preface) of the Publisher

All praise belongs to Allah who has made us successful in publishing the second book in the Pamphlets of Tawhid series. We had compiled pamphlets containing fundamental knowledge and terms the individual who is new in learning the Aqidah (creed) of Tawhid would need.

In this book, we compiled some pamphlets as a guide and provision for the one who has begun to learn and adhere to the Aqidah of Tawhid. Hence, the mentioned pamphlets contain important advice regarding difficulty an individual could come across when he has commenced to live and call to Tawhid.

In reality, when the life of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhab (rahimahullah), the author of these pamphlets, is inspected, it can be seen that the matters explained in these pamphlets are personal experiences lived in Jihad.

An individual holding on to Tawhid will witness that he will be subjected to doubts, oppression, and deceit brought by his most closest. He will also find that some of his fellow companions will deceive by falling into obedience to such doubts and tricks. If those individuals requesting to live Tawhid live heedless of such occurrences without any preparation, they will come face to face with the astray path thus resulting in the torment and punishment of Allah Taala.

At the same time, we hope that it is better understood in the example of Shaykh Muhammad (rahimahullah) from these pamphlets that the caller to Tawhid must necessarily be broad-minded. The reason being, the Shaykh did not limit his call to merely his family and his countrymen (fellow citizens), rather as it will be witnessed from the book, he tried to transport the Dawah (call) of Tawhid to distant abodes that could be considered as the other end of the earth in his era, such as Morocco. In reality, this is not his, but personally the Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi was sallam).

Although in summary, some details regarding the issues of Tawhid and responses given to doubts take place in this book.
 
The Takhrij (extraction and authentication) of the Ahadith (pl., Hadith) and Athar (narrations) and sources have been done within the extent of our capabilities, and our own explanations have been included as footnotes in necessity. Also included is the life of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhab, the characteristic of his Ilm (knowledge), and the reality of his Dawah have been included as an introduction.

We ask our Lord to make this a means to benefit from both Dunya (worldly life) and Akhirah (hereafter) and a means of guidance for those in Dalalah (misguidance).
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

The Life, Knowledgeable Characteristic, and Struggle of
Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb Rahimahullh[1]

His Birth and Upbringing

The Shaykh Muhammed bin Abdil Wahhb bin Sulaymn bin Al at-Tamim Rahimahullh was born in the year 1115H (1703 CE) at Uyaynah, a city of Najd in the Arabian Peninsula.

His father Abdul Wahhb and grandfather Sulaymn were amongst the renowned knowledgeable individuals of the area of Najd, and thus were the source of Fatw (religious verdicts) during their time. His grandfather, Sulaymn bin Al lived during the era of the eminent Hanbal Faqh (jurist), Mansr al-Baht Rahimahullh, author of Kashshaful Qin, it is reported that they met in Makkah. In this manner, the Shaykh grew up in an environment occupied by Ilm.

His Shuykh (pl. of Shaykh; Teachers) and His Travels to Seek Ilm (Knowledge)

Shaykh Muhammad Rahimahullh learned the Qurn and attained basic knowledge from his father. He memorized the Qurn before the age of ten. He mastered the Hanbal Fiqh (jurisprudence) along with its Isnd (chain of narration) to Imm Ahmad Rahimahullh from his father and grandfather. His father appointed him as the Imm (leader) of Salh (daily prayers), once he reached puberty. It is also reported his father would say, I have learned many beneficial matters regarding the Ahkm (pl. of Hukm; rulings) from him.[2]

According to his grandson Shaykh Abdul Latf Rahimahullh, he had gone to the Haramayn (two sacred cities; Makkah and Madnah), gathered with the Shuykh of the area, attained Ijzah (the grant of permission or authority) from some of them, and later went to the cities Basra and Ahs and took lessons from the Shuykh.

Shaykh Abdul Latf bin Abdir Rahmn Rahimahullh mentions the inclination of his grandfather, Shaykh Muhammad, to Tawhd and taking the Qurn and Sunnah as his guide by abandoning blind following being influenced greatly by the Shaykhul Haramayn of his era, Muhammad Hayyt as-Sind, whom he studied Hadth from at Hijz.[3]

His other grandson Shaykh Sulaymn bin Abdillh Rahimahullh mentioned names such as Al Afand ad-Dghistn, the author of the famous Kashful Khaf al-Ajln, Abdullh bin Ibrhm an-Najd, and Abl Mawhib al-Hanbal amongst his teachers. He studied various books on Fiqh (jurisprudence), Hadth, Srah (history), Lughah (the Arabic language), especially the nine basic Hadth books from the mentioned scholars and others with their Sanad (Isnd).

Also through his teacher Abdullh bin Ibrhm an-Najd, he had the honour of narrating some of the Ahdth (pl. of Hadth) with their Isnd reaching Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam.[4]

His Students

Besides his sons Abdullh, Husayn, and Ibrhm Rahimahumullh; his grandson Abdur Rahmn bin Hasan Rahimahullh; his companions in Dawah such as Sud bin Abdul Azz Rahimahullh are amongst his students from his close surrounding, other scholars such as Hamad bin Nsir bin Uthmn l-i Muammar, Abdul Azz bin Husayn an-Nsir, Sad bin Hijj, and Husayn bin Ghannm Rahimahumullh were educated in his circle of knowledge.

His Works
Alongside his many works, the most famous ones are as follows:

Kitbut Tawhd (The Book of Monotheism), Kashf'ush Shubuht (Removal of the Doubts), Manat Tght (the Meaning of Tght), al-Usluth Thalthah (The Three Fundamentals), al-Qawidul Arbaah (The Four Principles), ar-Rislatul Mufdah (the Beneficial, Important and Precious Pamphlet), Mukhtasaru Sratir Rasl (The Concise History of the Rasl), dabul Mashyi ilas Salh (the Manner of Walking Towards Prayer), Mufdul Mustafd (Beneficial Benefeciary), al-Jawhirul Mudhiyyah (the Illuminating Gems), Masilul Jhiliyyah (The Issues of the Era of Ignorance), and other short pamphlets regarding Aqdah,

He also has authored many beneficial books such as Fadhlul Islm (The Superiority of Islm), Uslul mn (The Foundation of Faith), al-Kabir (the Major Sins), Mukhtasarul Insf wash Sharhil Kabr, and Majmul Hadth al Abwbil Fiqh (A Compilation of Hadth According to the Topics of Fiqh).

Most of the works by the Shaykh Muhammad Rahimahullh have been gathered in Majmu Muallaftish Shaykhi Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb in thirteen volumes. It is also possible to find many of his Rasil (pamphlets) in ad-Durarus Saniyyah in eleven volumes.

His Da'wah (Call)

The Shaykh Rahimahullh began his Dawah of Tawhd in Basrah and because he had gained the enmity of some individuals, on a hot summers day, he had to leave the city on foot. After this, he went to Huraymilah; however, when there was an attempt for his assassination, he left the city.

Then he set off to Uyaynah and was under the Himyah (protection) of Uthmn bin Muammar, the Amr of Uyaynah. In Uyaynah, events to destroy places of Shirk such as the tomb of Zayd Ibnul Khattb Radiyallhu Anh being demolished to begin with and the application of Rajm (stoning to death) to a female as the punishment of Zin (fornication) under the leadership of the Shaykh had terrified the enemies of Islm, and finally, Uthmn bin Muaamar submitted to the repression and treachery and expelled the Shaykh from Uyaynah.

Leaving Uyaynah, the Shaykh Muhammad Rahimahullh went to ad-Diriyyah in the year 1158H, and there he met Muhammad bin Sud. Ibnu Sud accepted the call of Tawhd by the Shaykh and promised he would assist his Dawah all the way. After such pact, they struggled together and did not part until death.

After this alliance of sword and pen, the Dawah (call) of Tawhd spread in waves, starting from the villages and towns, and ultimately along with the establishment of administration relying on the Aqdah, the Salaf Dawah which the Shaykh lead began to be heard everywhere.

His Death and Eulogy

After a life built upon Ilm (knowledge), Amal (action), Dawah (invitation) and Sabr (patience), the Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb Rahimahullh died at the age of 92 in the year 1206H (1792 CE).

Following his death, scholars such as Imm ash-Shawkn (1250H/1834 CE) and Husayn bin Ghannm (1225H/1811 CE), a scholar from among the Ulam (scholars) of Ahs, wrote odes for him.

Also, al-Amr as-Sann the author of the renowned books such as Subulus Salm and Tathrul Itiqd had written a Qasdah (ode) praising him during his life time.

May Allh Subhnahu have mercy upon Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb and all those Muwahhid scholars who had a hand in spreading the Call of Tawhd, and may he destine us to benefit from their works. (mn!)

CHAPTER 1

THE LETTERS PERTAINING TO DA'WAH OF SHAYKHUL ISLM MUHAMMAD BIN ABDIL WAHHB RAHIMAHULLH





Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah Rahimahullh stated,

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

"The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim." (Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majm'ul Fatw, 13/235)

إِخْلَاصُ الدِّيْنِ وَاتِّبَاعُ السُّنَّةِ
Ikhls in the Dn and Following the Sunnah

Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb -may Allhu Tal have mercy upon him and forgive him- has another pamphlet as follows:

In the name of Allh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

To whomever this (letter of Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb) reaches amongst the Muslimn (pl. Muslim)

May Allh guide us and them to His true Dn (religion) and to following His Sratul Mustaqm (Straight Path). May He provide us and them with the Millah (religion) of al-Khallayn (His two close friends); Muhammad Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam and Ibrhm Alayhis Salm.

Salmun Alaykum wa Rahmatullhi wa Baraktuhu!..

To proceed:

Allhu Tal said,

﴿وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ لِلَّهِ.﴾ [الأنفال: 39]
And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allh) and until all of the Dn (religion) will be for Allh Alone.[1]

Allhu Tal also said,


﴿وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعاً وَلا تَفَرَّقُوا.﴾ [آل عمران: 103]
And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become disunited.[2]

Allhu Tal also said,


﴿شَرَعَ لَكُمْ مِنَ الدِّينِ مَا وَصَّى بِهِ نُوحاً.﴾
He has ordained for you of religion what He enjoined upon Nh

Until His statement in the yah,


﴿أَنْ أَقِيمُوا الدِّينَ وَلا تَتَفَرَّقُوا فِيهِ.﴾ [الشورى: 13]
to establish the religion and not be divided therein.[3][4]

It is Wjib (obligatory) upon every person who fears Allh and the Nr (the fire; i.e., Hell) to ponder upon the Kalm (Word) of his Rabb (Lord) whom created him.

Is it possible for any human being to obey Allh with something other than the Dn of the Nab Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam? This is due to the statement of Allhu Tal,

﴿وَمَنْ يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَى وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّى.﴾ [النساء: 115]
And whoever opposes the Messenger after guidance has become clear to him and follows other than the way of the believers - We will give him what he has taken[5][6]

The religion of the Nab Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam is Tawhd (monotheism), which is comprehending La Ilaha Illallh Muhammadun Raslullh (there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship- except Allh and Muhammad is His messenger) and acting upon its necessities.

If it is said, All of the people utter it, then it will be said to him:

There are some amongst those who utter it and deem that it means, nothing creates other than Allh, nothing provides sustenance other than Allh or similar to it.

There are also some amongst them who do not comprehend its meaning.

There are some amongst them who do not act upon its necessities.

And there are some amongst them who do not understand its reality.

That which is stranger than this is the one who comprehends the meaning of Tawhd from one perspective but shows enmity towards it and its people from the other perspective.

That which is stranger than that is the one who loves it (inclines to Tawhd) and ascribes himself to its people but does not differentiate between its allies and enemies.

Oh, glory to Allh the Supreme from all defects! Can two opposing groups take place in the same Dn while all of them are on the truth? No by Allh!

﴿فَمَاذَا بَعْدَ الْحَقِّ إِلَّا الضَّلَالُ.﴾ [يونس: 32]
And what can be beyond truth except error?[7]

If it is said: Tawhd is beautiful, the Dn is true, except for Takfr (excommunication) and Qitl (fighting), it is said:

Act in accordance with Tawhd and the Dn of the Rasl Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam, and (then) the ruling of Takfr and Qitl will be lifted (from you). If the right of Tawhd (according to you) is affirming it and turning away from its rulings, let alone hating it and showing enmity towards it; then Wallhi (By Allh) this is Kufr (disbelief) itself and its clearest form.

Whoever has trouble to comprehend anything of this should read the Srah (the life stories) of Muhammad Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam and his Ashb (companions) carefully.

Returning Allhs peace, mercy and blessings unto you as I did in he beginning!..

﴿شَرَعَ لَكُمْ مِنَ الدِّينِ مَا وَصَّى بِهِ نُوحًا وَالَّذِي أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ وَمَا وَصَّيْنَا بِهِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَمُوسَى وَعِيسَى أَنْ أَقِيمُوا الدِّينَ وَلَا تَتَفَرَّقُوا فِيهِ كَبُرَ عَلَى الْمُشْرِكِينَ مَا تَدْعُوهُمْ إِلَيْهِ اللَّهُ يَجْتَبِي إِلَيْهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَيَهْدِي إِلَيْهِ مَنْ يُنِيبُ.﴾ [الشورى: 13]
He has ordained for you of religion what He enjoined upon Nh, and that which We have revealed to you (O Muhammad), and that which We enjoined upon Ibrhm, Ms, and s - to establish the religion and not be divided therein. Intolerable for the Mushrikn (pl. Mushrik; polytheists), is that to which you call them. Allh chooses for Himself whom He wills and guides to Himself whoever turns back to Him in penitence. (ash-Shr 42/13)

And whoever opposes the Messenger after guidance has become clear to him and follows other than the way of the believers - We will give him what he has taken and We shall admit him into Jahannam, what an evil destination. (an-Nis 4/115)

Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah Rahimahullh stated,

"The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim." (Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majm'ul Fatw, 13/235)
