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.

This is a link to a PDF of a small book written by the great scholar Dr. Rabee’ bin Haadee al-Madkhalee, translated by Isma’eel Alacorn:
Devil’s Deception of People by giving them High Hopes (of living long)
Many Jews and Christians contemplated joining Islam, but Iblis convinced them to procrastinate saying: “Do not rush, look more into the issue.” Until they die as non-Muslims. He also causes the sinner to procrastinate seeking repentance. A poet said:
“Do not rush into committing a sin,and then procrastinate repenting.”
Iblis makes those seeking righteousness feel lazy, and he causes those who are serious to procrastinate. He convinces a jurist to rest instead of going over his lesson again. And convinces a worshipper who had woken up to pray at night that he still has a lot of time.
Iblis tries to make people lazy procrastinators, and to make them have hope (of a long life). A disciplined person must take advantage of time, and never procrastinate. That which is feared can never be trusted, and that which passes can never be brought back again.
The main reason for doing less good and more evil is relying on the hope of a long life, this is because a person continues to procrastinate performing good deeds and refraining from evil deeds. He who hopes to wake up in the morning will not do much at night, and he who hopes to travel during the day will travel much at night. However, he who sees death to be near works hard during his life. Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Perform prayer as if you were departing.”
Some of the Salaf said: “Beware of procrastination, for it is one of devil’s strongest weapons.”
A disciplined person prepares for his journey, while a procrastinator doesn’t. So when it comes time to travel the disciplined person feels happy while the procrastinator feels that he is in trouble. This is how people are. Some are alert, so when the Angel of Death comes they do not feel guilty. Others are not disciplined, so they feel the agony when it comes time to travel. If procrastination is part of your nature then repelling it becomes
difficult. But when one knows that he has a persistant enemy he will always be on guard.
We ask Allah to give us safety from the enemy’s cunning, the devil’s fitnah’s and the evils of ourselves and the dunya. Indeed He is near and responsive.

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.

A short treatise written by Dr. Saleh Saleh rahimahullah regarding the mankind’s dependency on our Creator:
The creation is in need of Allah: the-creation-is-in-need-of-Allah
Islam and misogyny
Misogyny means: “Dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women” [http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/misogyny].
Unfortunately, many people claim Islam is a misogynistic religion and that Muslim women are oppressed. However, this claim is false and unjustified. Islam honors women and gives them their status.
Prior to Islam, the polytheists of the Arab disliked girls and were sadden by their birth. Allah says:
وَإِذَا بُشِّرَ أَحَدُهُمْ بِالْأُنْثَى ظَلَّ وَجْهُهُ مُسْوَدًّا وَهُوَ كَظِيمٌ
يَتَوَارَى مِنَ الْقَوْمِ مِنْ سُوءِ مَا بُشِّرَ بِهِ أَيُمْسِكُهُ عَلَى هُونٍ أَمْ يَدُسُّهُ فِي التُّرَابِ أَلَا سَاءَ مَا يَحْكُمُونَ
And when the news of (the birth of) a female (child) is brought to any of them, his face becomes dark, and he is filled with inward grief! He hides himself from the people because of the evil of that whereof he has been informed. Shall he keep her with dishonour or bury her in the earth? Certainly, evil is their decision [16:58-59]
Imam al-Alusi rahimahullah said:
“The verse is clear in the dispraise of being sad if given the glad tidings of a girl because it was narrated that it was the action of the disbelievers. As for the real believer, then he is pleased with what Allah has allotted for him and the decree of Allah is better than the judgement of a person himself…verily Allah informed you of their [the polytheist’s] actions to avoid it and prohibit it” [Tafseer al-Alusi (10/206)].
Quite the contrary, the Prophet (ﷺ) said:
لاَ يَفْرَكْ مُؤْمِنٌ مُؤْمِنَةً إِنْ كَرِهَ مِنْهَا خُلُقًا رَضِيَ مِنْهَا آخَرَ
A believing man should not hate a believing woman; if he dislikes one of her characteristics, he will be pleased with another [Muslim no.1468]
Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:
“…That is: his wife, his sister, and his mother. However the intent here is his wife…“[Sharh Riyaadhus-Saliheen (6/244)].
So Islam does not believe women are a source of sadness or shame. Islam believes women are the twin-sisters of men.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said:
نَعَمْ إِنَّمَا النِّسَاءُ شَقَائِقُ الرِّجَالِ
Yes. Woman are counterpart of men.
[Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 236]
Imam al-Khattabi (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:
“[In this Hadith is proof] that the audience [of Ahaadith] if reported with the wording men is [also] addressing women. Except in the places that are specified [for women] by the evidences” [‘Awn al-Ma’bood (1/275)].
Imam as-San’aani rahimahullah said commenting on the Hadith:
لعن الله الرجلة من النساء
Allah cursed mannish women
“Mannish women who imitate men in their appearance and in their speech and the likes of that. As for [regarding] knowledge and opinion, then it is praiseworthy [i.e. that women be like men]. I say: it is not resemblance, rather it is acting upon what they have been ordered to do. For verily the women are the counterparts of men. They were ordered with knowledge and action. The manner of teaching and learning is not specific to men“[Tanweer Sharh Jami’ as-Sagheer (9/48)].
Some people may say that Islam favours men over women and they point to the verse in the Quran that states:
الرجال قوامون على النساء بما فضل الله بعضهم على بعض وبما أنفقوا من أموالهم
Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means [4:34]
According to Imam Shawkaani (may Allah have mercy upon him), this verse means:
“Verily they [the men] only deserve this virtue due to Allah favoring men over women because of what He has favored them with in terms of being caliphates, sultans, rulers, ameers, soldiers, and other than that of affairs” [Fathul-Qadir (1/694)].
It does not mean all men are better than women, but that men have been favored over women from this angle.
Shaikh Bin Baz (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:
“…It does not necessitate from this [verse] that every man is better than every woman. Verily this preference is in general. As for detail, then a woman can be better than a man. This is a real, well-known affair. However, in general the male gender was favored over the female gender and this is known through the legislation, intellect, and natural disposition. Through the knowledge of reality and experience. However, how many women are better than a man due to her knowledge, religion, steadfastness, and insight. By looking at the attributes of the female Companions, Tabi’een, and Scholars of this Ummah of the women, you will know there are good women who are better then many men“[Noor ‘ala Darb (26/106)].
And as mentioned earlier, women are the counterparts of men. However, there are certain positions or fields that men are given preference and this is a virtue given by Allah. It does not mean women are less than men or that they are not as good as men or despised by men.
Some may point then to this verse:
فَإِنْ لَمْ يَكُونَا رَجُلَيْنِ فَرَجُلٌ وَامْرَأَتَانِ مِمَّنْ تَرْضَوْنَ مِنَ الشُّهَدَاءِ أَنْ تَضِلَّ إِحْدَاهُمَا فَتُذَكِّرَ إِحْدَاهُمَا الْأُخْرَى
And get two witnesses out of your own men. And if there are not two men (available), then a man and two women, such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (two women) errs, the other can remind her [2:282]
Saying that this means women are less than men and why is the testimony of two men equal to one man? Allah explained in the above verse that if one of them errs the other can remind them.
Imam Ibn Qayyim (may Allah have mercy upon him) said that his teacher Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:
“In this verse is evidence that the testimony of two women in place of the testimony of one man is only for one woman to remind the other if she errs. This is only in [the affairs] that have error in them in customarily. That is forgetfulness and inaccuracy. So in this meaning, the Prophet (ﷺ) said the Hadith:
أما نقصان عقلهن فشهادة امرأتين بشهادة رجل
As for you deficiency in intellect, then it is that the testimony of two women is equal to the testimony to one man [صحيح مسلم]
So he clarified that she has half the testimony because of the deficiency in intellect [i.e. memory and accuracy] not in religion. So it is known by that that the trustworthiness of a women is in the same position as the trustworthiness of a man. And that her intellect can be more deficient than his [i.e. in this angle]. In the matters of testimony in which error is not feared customarily, then her testimony is not half of that of a man’s. Two testimonies [in this situation] is not accepted. The places when a single testimony is accepted is in things which she saw, or touched with her hand, or heard with her ear [which do not] depend [solely] on the intellect. Like regarding birth, or the voice of the child when being born, or in menstruation, or the defects underneath the [woman’s] clothing. For verily the likes of these affairs are not forgotten customarily” [at-Turuq al-Hukumiyyah (1/221-222)].
The Hadith cited by Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) above is also another common contention in the opinion of some people. It is when the Prophet (ﷺ) said:
وَمَا رَأَيْتُ مِنْ نَاقِصَاتِ عَقْلٍ وَدِينٍ أَغْلَبَ لِذِي لُبٍّ مِنْكُنَّ
I have never seen anyone lacking in discernment and religion more overwhelming to a man of wisdom than you [Muslim no. 79]
Shaikh Bin Baz (may Allah have mercy upon him) commented on this Hadith saying:
“…It does not necessitate from this Hadith that the deficiency in her intellect is in everything and the deficiency in her religion is in everything. Verily the Prophet (ﷺ) clarified that the deficiency in her intellect is from the angle that inaccuracy occurs in testimony and her deficiency in religion is from the angle that she leaves off the prayer and fasting in the situation of menstruation and post-natal bleeding. It does not necessitate also that she is less than a man in everything and that a man is better than her in everything. Yes, so it is not necessary for a believer to accuse her [the woman] of being deficient in everything and have deficiency in all her religion. Verily it is a specific deficiency in regards to accuracy in testimony and the likes. So it is necessary to have fairness with her [woman] and carry the speech of the Prophet upon the best of possible meanings. And Allah Knows best” [Fatwa Noor ‘ala Darb (29/101-102].
So this clarifies that Islam does not believe women to have inferior minds than men in general. It is only in relation to her memory and accuracy in certain affairs of testimony. Otherwise, there are many instances of women in Islam who were Scholars and teachers, like Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her), the wife of the Prophet (ﷺ) and Fatimah bint al-Mundhir (may Allah have mercy on her).
So we can conclude from what has been mentioned above that Islam is not a misogynistic religion. Far from that, Islam is a religion of justice and honor.
And Allah Knows Best
