Fanaticism at its best

There are a large number of scholars of hadith who labeled Numaan bin Thaabit (Abu Hanifah) weak in hadith. They get accused for bigotry. They do not get accused for bigotry when they label others weak.

Hanafi fanaticism at its best.

But you can understand their frustration. One of the criteria for being an Imaam is to be able to tell an authentic hadith from a weak one. If they admit what the majority of scholars have to say about Numaan bin Thaabit, then he fails to fulfill the criteria.

They lie

They claim to respect all the Madhaahib. They lie.

There is a tank. It holds 216 liters, or a Qullatain, of water. Two persons, in a state of major ritual impurity, immerse themselves in the tank. The color, smell, or taste of the water does not change. The water will have purified the two persons and still retain its ability to purify. This is the Shaafi'i position on the matter.

I told my Hanafi teacher about the above ruling. He laughed mockingly

An old man recites the dua "Rabbigh fir li" between the two sujuud. This irritates the Hanafi Qaari in the masjid. If you purposefully omit the dua between the two sujuud, your prayer is invalid according to the Hanbali school of thought. 

The Hanbali school considers camel urine to be pure. The Maaliki school agrees with them. My wife posted this on Facebook. The Hanafis lost their minds. They joked and mocked at the ruling. One Hanafi private messaged her. He told her not to act stupid. Urine is impure. It cannot be pure even if it be camel urine. He refused to accept the hadith. He gave it ta'wiil and showed no respect for the other Madhaahib.

They claim to respect all the Madhaahib. They lie.

How true is what Shaikh Sha’arani, author of Mezaan al-kubra and a Shafi scholar born in Qalqanshada, Egypt in 898/1493 who died in Cairo in 973/1565, said: 

"Most of the Muqallideen have very evil thoughts about the other Imams. It has been relayed to us that the Hanafis and Shafis of Wara Nahr abandon fasting in the month of Ramadhan so that they maintain their energy whilst refuting each others evidences and proofs." 

(Meezan al-Kubra 1/43)

He spoke the truth. May Allaah bless him.

He called a spade a spade. May Allaah bless him.

Weak hadith and the scums who propagate them

Your deeds are nothing compared to the rank and status of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). 


The deeds of the whole creation are nothing compared to the rank and status of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). 


Allaah said to the Companions that if they, the best of creation after the Prophets (peace be upon them all), raised their voices above the voice of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) their deeds would go to waste. 

O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless while you perceive not.

[Qur’aan 49:2]


The Rightly Guided Caliphs would not narrate too many hadith because they feared they would make a mistake. These are those who lived with the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). They heard his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) words without any intermediate. They saw what he (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) did without any intermediate. Yet, they were so careful. 


And here you are uttering nonsense that it is permissible to narrate weak hadith in regards to virtuous acts to people without even telling them that the hadith is weak. 


You do not realize the notorious thing you say and support. A weak hadith may or may not be something the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said or did. Yet, you shamelessly narrate it to anyone you meet hoping to get rewards. 


Your reward is nothing. You attributed something you did not know was true or not to the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). Have you no shame?


Look at the example of al-Layth and learn from it though the caution displayed by the Rightly Guided Caliphs should be enough for you. And if you still do not take heed, may Allaah subject you to a humiliating torment in both this world and the next for your refusal to accept the truth in regards to a matter which involves the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

Marwaan [ibn Muhammad al-Asadi] said: “I said to Layth ibn Sa’d – when I saw him sleep after ‘Asr during the month of Ramadaan – ‘O Abu’l-Haarith! Why are you sleeping after ‘Asr when Ibn Lahee’ah has told us … (and he mentioned it)?’ Al-Layth said: ‘I do not give up something that is good for me because of the hadeeth of Ibn Lahee’ah from ‘Aqeel!’”


Yes, he continued to sleep. He did not act on a weak hadith. 


Stop propagating what could be falsehood among the Ummah without telling them. The Tablighi Jamat is a joke


Don't join their ranks and the ranks of others who worship their scholars. 


Your scholars and Imaams are not going to be saving you on the Day when you stand in front of the King of kings and have been put among the fold of those who disrespected the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) and moved away from the way of the Rightly Guided Caliphs and the way of the Salaf who were on the truth such as al-Layth.

The eyes which will not see the Fire

There is a hadiith narrated by al-Tabaraani. Sheikh al-Albaani graded it authentic when all the routes of transmission by means of which it has reached are taken into consideration. 


It mentions three people whose eyes will never see the Fire [of Hell]. One of the eyes mentioned are the ones kept away from looking at those things which Allaah has forbidden to look at. 


Today, we live in a society dominated by scantly dressed females. Porn is easily accessible. You see half-covered and nude females on any TV show you turn on.  


Modesty has been lost. 


Safeguard your eyes. Look away whenever you see something impermissible. Remind yourself that you are giving up a pleasure of this temporary world for safety from the eternal Fire of Hell


And if you make the mistake of looking. If you look because the devil or your Nafs overpowered you, then weep out of the fear of Allaah for what you have done. Because the second pair of eyes which are mentioned in the hadith are those which weep out of the fear of Allaah.


They, too, will not see the Fire.

ثلاثة لا ترى أعينهم النار: عين حرست في سبيل الله, وعين بكت من خشية الله, وعين كفت عن محارم الله

Matters of Ijtihaad

The Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) disagreed in matters of Ijtihaad and yet they were one Ummah, brothers, and loved one another.
