Madrasah Mabadi Ul Uloom:
Notes on ISIS;
1. They read the Quran but they lack intellect and understanding as they take general unrestricted verses in every single situation whether general or specific. And this is not proper according to the intellect or the Islamic legislation.
2. They leave off evidences that Don’t go according to their desires. Hence the Hadeeth about obidience to the Muslim rulers even if they are sinful and oppressive and the Hadeeths regarding sparing non-combattants from being killed are not recognized by them.
3. They call everyone who opposes them Kuffar, Munafiqs and apostates.
4. They can’t diffrentiate between Jihaad and murder/ extortion.
5. They misinterpret prophecy regarding the signs of the hour.
6. They don’t differentiate between those who oppose the legislation due to himself and his desires and those who
oppose the legislation and ascribe it to Allah.
7. They claim that all the verses that order the Muslims to be just to the disbelievers are all abrogated.
There are many other points which would soon be brought out in detail.
Make sure to pass this message on and even read it to those who think that ISIS embodies Islam.
💢 *TWELVE REASONS why ISIS are Astray, Delusional and Fallacious Imposters!!* 💢
*1)* Their killing of the innocent including women, children, consulates and ambassadors (Muslims and non-Muslims alike).
*2)* Their savagery, barbarism and blood-thirstiness, affairs which are manifest through their brutal methods of execution.
*3)* Their use of Fire in burning to death their adversaries. This is Haraam in Islaam as conveyed by the Messenger Sallahu Aleyhi wa Sallam.
*4)* Their ignorance, for you do not find amongst them one accredited Islamic Scholar.
*5)* Their declaring Muslims to be disbelievers for no Legislative reason. In fact, they even declare other Khawaariji renegade groups such as Al Qaeda to be disbelievers!
*6)* Their claim that Makkah, Medinah and the Muslim lands are ruled by disbelievers and are no longer lands of Islaam. Whilst the Messenger informed that there will be no Hijrah from Makkah after its conquest and that is because it has become a land of Islam and will remain as such until the Day of Judgement.
*7)* Their engagement in suicide operations which are Haraam and in contradiction with the Message of Islaam, which came to preserve Upright Moral Character and Most Notably Human life.
*8)* Their secret and highly covert method of (claimed) governance, for instance their supposed leaders including Al-Baghdadi are unknown personalities and operate in an air of intransparency and secrecy.
⚠ *In short,* one would not give his daughter’s hand in marriage to a man he does not know, so how about pledging allegiance to a man who popped up a few years ago, and has been in hiding ever since!
*9)* Their obsession with the Dunya. Their leaders amass a ‘handsome wage’, multiple wives and female slaves for themselves, all (falsely) in the name of the ‘Khilaafah’ and Islaam, whilst those beneath them do the ‘dirty work’, losing their lives for a meager pittance in the process.
*10)* Their fighting and fixation with Muslim groups in Syria and Iraq. Whilst, (despite their claims) they fight the disbelievers little as the Messenger Salallahu Aleyhi wa sallam informed concerning the affair of the Khawaarij, that they solely fight against the people of Islaam.
*11)* Their splitting amongst themselves (i.e. amongst the Khawaarij groups) for reasons of leadership and wealth. Despite all these groups carrying uniform deviant ideologies, you see them split into Al Qaeda, ISIS and Nusra Front (as they were formally known).
*12)* Their lack of Fiqh in the affairs of combat, for many of their small-sized operations against ‘disbelievers’ bring great harm to the Muslims in their very homes and villages. Hence, the emergence of drone strikes on Muslim lands, which have killed thousands of innocent men, women and children. Not to mention, the intervention of Russian, Iranian and Hezbolllah forces in the Syrian conflict. The aforementioned groups have inter-merged, and assembled themselves collusively to kill innocent Muslims under the pretext of ridding Syria of extreme groups such as ISIS.
*So how many innocent women, children and elderly have been harmed as a result of this?*
Is this the guidance of the Messenger Salaallahu aleyhi wa Sallaam who migrated from Makkah to Medinah so as to call to the Oneness of Allaah?
Was his Guidance Salaallahu aleyhi wa Sallam one of savagery, brutality and undefined combat, and war? And Allaah says in His Noble Book:
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ
*And We have not sent you (O Muhammad SAW) except as a mercy for the ‘Alamin* (mankind, jinns and all that exists). [Al-Anbiya: 107]
Oh Allaah rid the World of the Khawaarij ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al Shabaab and all those who traverse their path. Oh Allaah Unto You we complain of Bashar Assad and his oppressive regime, Sufficient are You! And Unto You we put our Trust.

Question: If a new Muslim asks about the ruling on music, for example, should we say to him: it is disliked by way of gradually [teaching him the religion and its rulings]?
Answer: “Do not say it it is disliked. Rather, say: it is from the affairs which Islam prohibits. If he fears the new Muslim will turn away [from the religion], then it is possible that it is said to him [instead]: “leave it” or “avoid it” or “turn towards something which will benefit you”, without saying what is in opposition to the reality”.

How Should One Interact With a Friend Who Calls Him to Evil? – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen
Question: The listener [to the Noor ‘ala Darb radio program] says: I have a friend who pushes me to evil. He is my friend for seven years. So what should I do with him?
Answer: “It is obligatory upon you to advise this friend who calls you to evil. If he is guided, then it is for himself and if he is not guided, then it is upon you to separate from him. This is because the Prophet (ﷺ) warned from accompanying the evil people. He (ﷺ) said:
مثل الجليس الصالح كحامل المسك إما أن يحذيك وإما أن يبيعك وإما أن تجد منه رائحة طيبة ومثل الجليس السوء كنافخ الكير إما أن يحرق ثيابك وإما أن تجد منه رائحة كريهة
The example of a good companion is like that of the musk seller. Either he will give you some musk as a gift or sell it to you or you will find a good smell from him. The example of the bad friend is like the one who blows the bellows. Either he will burn your clothes or you will find a bad smell from him
[Bukhari and Muslim]
This includes a warning from evil companions. It was also reported from the Prophet (ﷺ) that he said:
المرء على دين خليله فلينظر أحدكم من يخالل
A man follows the religion of his friend; so each one should consider whom he makes his friend [Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood (no. 4833)]
Many people are upon firmness and adhering to the religion. Then when a devil from the devils of mankind is appointed for him, from those who misguide from the straight path, perhaps he will be affected by it. And the infallible one is the one whom Allah protects/preserves [from error]”.

MY HONEST THOUGHTS ON DATE | Br. Samuel Pierre
I tell people romance is nonsense and they immediately say “brother, you’re not married are you?”
I’m sure you think that’s funny. I do too, but for different reasons. You see, I’m an anthropologist. We study humanity. Primarily through culture and religion. With this we become aware of the origins of words and their original meaning in the context of the culture and wider civilization in which the word and it’s associated concept originated and developed. We ask people all the time, why do you think the opposite of romance is “not caring” rather than loving? And we ask the people why is it in the modern world when people say “relationship” we automatically think “romance”. It’s no coincidence that when people update their status to “in a relationship”, people automatically assume you’re in a haraam relationship.
Romance originated in Greco-Roman culture. This is the context. This type of relationship is rooted in their understanding of the relationship between men and women(and men and men, and women and women). Indeed, the boyfriend/girlfriend relationship is an inevitable consequence of their beliefs. Indeed the Modern Western Civilization is simply the revival of the Greco-Roman Civilization.
But what is romance?
Romance is utilizing words and gestures designed to appeal to the ego of another, in order to ingratiate that person to yourself, creating an (unhealthy) emotional attachment, so that this person will be more amenable to fulfilling your whims and desires. It’s essentially a manipulative relationship, where one person attempts to use another selfishly, by controlling them emotionally, and eventually psychologically, so that their goals for self-worship, control, and security are accomplished through another person. And many are deceived because romance mimics love in many respects. But we all know that nothing can substitute the real thing.
You think I’m lying or intellectualizing something simple? Well, you’re free to research on your own.
1. Talk or behave amorously, without serious intentions.
2. Tell exaggerated lies
3. Tell an untruth; pretend with intent to deceive
4. To attempt to gain the affection of.
5. A kind of excitement.
6. To try to persuade, as with flattery or incentives.
7. To court the favor of or woo.
8. A mysterious, exciting, sentimental, or nostalgic quality.
9. Idealized love.
10. To indulge in fanciful stories or daydreams.
I can’t even make this stuff up.
Key word in Romance is Rom(an). Roman civilization is basically Greek.
MY HONEST THOUGHTS ON DATING:
Because what most people actually want in the boyfriend/girlfriend relationship is exactly what people want in their marriage, I think dating, even if I wasn’t religious, is a pure waste of time. The phrase: “If he truly loves you, he will marry you”, makes so much sense to me…
It just seems that men get so much more out of the dating relationship than women, simply because of the way patriarchal societies condition(read:brainwash) men and women. Men basically get a wife without the commitment(a wifey). And women get to hope against all hope that one day their love decides to marry her(it rarely happens)…I don’t see the appeal in it for women.
And if you think that I am somehow relinquishing some fictitious “man-card” or violating some “man-law”, then you and I are not on the same page. I am Muslim. We do not believe in entering into relationships that are not of mutual benefit. Use things, not people.
Never mind the cognitive dissonance of “how you gonna know if someone is right for you unless you ‘get to know them’?; Every successful marriage began with “I knew the moment I saw her”, so that excuse is out.
People brainwash themselves in order justify and satisfy their own desires sometimes. We all know what “getting to know you” actually means; We all know that you can get to know someone without dating them before marriage; We all know that we can never actually know everything about anyone; And we all know that the missing ingredient in failed marriages is not desire, but genuine friendship.
