A common mistake from the students of knowledge

Post by Ithar Ghada Faied on Wed Dec 01, 2010 10:47 am



A common mistake from the students of knowledge by Sheik Albany

The following is a summary translation taken from sahab.net

In the name of ALLAH the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

Our Sheik, Albany, may ALLAH have mercy upon him, said in tape 33 in the series of fatwa from Jeddah…

I see that it is obligatory upon me to warn from this widespread mistake from many of the students of knowledge and other than them, and it is…

Verily if they are in a gathering of knowledge and one of them wants to extract a verse and seek information about it, or if they want to ask about its meaning or if they want to ask what is the connection between a verse and a hadith; the person will say, “ALLAH the Mighty and Majestic said I seek refuge with ALLAH from the accursed devil (and when the Koran is read then listen to it) {7:204}” for example. Or he will say, “ALLAH the Exalted said after I seek refuge with ALLAH from the accursed devil”; and other statements like this from the various statements.

This is an honest mistake in which something is attributed to ALLAH that the person did not intend, but he is condemned by his words. So he falls into opposing the statement of the Prophet, peace and blessings are upon him and his family, “beware of deeds you have to apologize for”. Therefore we, when we seek to correct this mistake with some of the people we say to them, where did ALLAH say, I seek refuge with ALLAH from the accursed devil and when the Koran is read then listen to it? You don’t find anything like this at all.

But I know just as every single one of you knows that the reader or the one seeking information, or the questioner only says this statement or mentions this statement of seeking refuge before the verse (of Koran) implementing or being in accordance with the statement of ALLAH the Exalted, “So when you want to recite the Koran, seek refuge with Allah”) (16:98). This is what they say when we will tell them that it is not befitting that it should be done like this. Because your statement ALLAH said after such and such, means that ALLAH said, I seek refuge in ALLAH from the accursed devil (and when the Koran is read then listen to it) And especially if it is said, ALLAH said after I seek refuge in ALLAH, this word “after” is only connected to the person, it is not connected to ALLAH the Blessed and Exalted.

And with this, it is upon everyone who quotes a verse seeking to use it as a proof or wanting to ask a question about it, to recite it directly and he should not say, ALLAH the Exalted said I seek refuge with ALLAH from the accursed devil (and when the Koran is read) and he should not say, ALLAH the Exalted said after I seek refuge in ALLAH; rather he should begin with the verse; so he should say, “what is the connection between the statement of ALLAH, (So when you want to recite the Koran, seek refuge with Allah) and hadith such and such. Like this, we should be cautious so that we don’t fall into opposition of the statement of the Messenger peace is upon him, (beware of deeds you have to apologize for), (don’t speak with words that you will have to apologize to the people for).

And the people always say, “By ALLAH, I meant this”. Oh my brother, your intention is in your heart no one knows it except for your Lord, rather the best expression of your intention is by your words. Did you not hear the severe criticism from the Prophet, peace and blessings are upon him to that companion? The one who heard the religious sermon from the Prophet peace and blessings are upon him and his family, so the companion stood to show his compliance and to follow the Prophet (peace and blessing are upon him) and to show his obedience to the Prophet (peace and blessings are upon him), he wanted to show this by his statement, “Whatever ALLAH wills and you will, oh Messenger of ALLAH.” So what was the stance of the Prophet, peace and blessings are upon him? He said, “Do you make me a rival with ALLAH?! Say whatever ALLAH wills alone.”

Do you think that this companion intended by his statement in which he was addressing his Prophet, “whatever ALLAH wills and you will”, that he was making the Prophet a partner with ALLAH? When one does not believe in the Messenger of ALLAH with certainty except by fleeing from shirk. Therefore why did the criticism from the Prophet, peace be upon him, to this companion reach such severe words. (“Do you make me a rival with ALLAH?! Say whatever ALLAH wills alone.”). Therefore it is not befitting to justify your verbal mistakes due to the correctness of what is in your heart. This does not justify that, therefore it is upon us that if we speak with words that our speech is in accordance with our good intention and it should not be that our speech is evil and our intention is good; rather it is incumbent that the speech is in conformity to what is in the heart, this is a reminder and this shall benefit the believers inshaALLAH.
