Common MistakesMuslims make
(No Transcript)
  • Our purpose in life
  • Allah tells us in the Quran
  • "And I have not created the Jin and man but that
    they worship Me" Quran 5157
  • Our main purpose in this life is to worship
  • By obeying his commands
  • And abstaining from what he forbade
  • If we look at how we live our lives
  • How much of our actions really reflect or
    contradict this purpose?
  • Our Eman (faith) decrease and increase with sins
    and worship.

  • Story
  • a time after the prophets death (SAW)
  • a group of people gathered in the masjid to do
    (loud group thikr)
  • the sahaba told them, what is this bidaah you
    are doing?
  • The prophets clothes are still here, and his
    pots have not yet broken, and his sahaba are
    still amongst you, and you managed to make this
    innovation (bidah)?
  • Either you want to be better than the religion
    of the prophet, or you have brought halaak
    destruction on yourselves.

  • This day, I have perfected your religion for
    you, completed My favor upon you, and have chosen
    for you Islam as your religion Quran 53
  • I have left two things behind me for you (the
    Ummah) You will never go astray as long as you
    follow them the Quran and the Sunnah (Malik)
  • Whoever innovates something in this matter of
    ours Islam that is not a part of it, will have
    it rejected. (Bukhari Muslim)
  • Islam is perfected
  • and we must be aware of adding new things to it.

  • We read fatiha17 times each day, and ask Allah
  • Guide us to the straight path The path of
    those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of
    those who have evoked Your anger or of those
    who are astray 16-7

  • Examples of common innovations
  • Making up new Muslim celebrations other than the
    two Eids
  • Eid al-mawlid celebration
  • Laylat al-miraaj celebration
  • Gathering in the night of Ramadan and assigning a
    certain chapter to each person, so that we all
    finish the Quran in one night
  • Singing thikr together
  • You might find some people justifying it, but go
    back to the Quran and Sunnah and see what it says

  • As a general rule
  • In everyday lives
  • it is Halal until clear evidence (Quran /
    hadeeth) speaks against it (i.e. eating
    something, wearing something)
  • In ibadah (worship)
  • DONT DO a type of ibada until you know clear
    evidence supporting it
  • otherwise you might be coming up with an bidah
    (innovation) in the religion

  • Example
  • online forums or yahoo answers
  • What do you think about this matter in Islam?
    What is your opinion?
  • well I think this, and I think that
  • They dont realize they are giving a Fatwa
  • without referring to credible scholars and
    providing evidence from Quran and Sunnah

  • Say, "My Lord has only forbidden immoralities
    (fawahish) what is apparent of them and what is
    concealed and sin, and oppression without
    right, and that you associate with Allah that for
    which He has not sent down authority, and that
    you say about Allah that which you do not know.
  • Othman was asked about his opinion on the Quran
  • He answered What sky or earth will hold me if I
    give my opinion on Quran?
  • In the end of this world
  • Allah will take away the knowledge
  • by taking the knowledgeable scholars
  • only the ignorant ppl will remain,
  • and people will ask them for fatwa, and then they
    will give fatwa,
  • misguiding themselves and the people

  • It is a major sin (kabair)
  • Some sahaba considered this shirk because you
    are inventing your own religion.
  • People follow you blindly, instead of following
    the truth that Allah revealed
  • Shirk only came into existence in the first place
    when people speak about Allah without knowledge
  • Example the Christians and paul

  • This is how new religions get invented
  • Whether it is an addition to the religion
  • Or making your own interpretation for quran
  • Twisting verses of Quran and pick and choose to
    support your opinion

  • Adhering to a certain ruling /opinion, even if
    there is a CLEAR EVIDENCE from Quran or authentic
    hadeeth AGAINST this ruling
  • Example
  • You tell someone its haram to do something,
    based on a hadeeth or Quran.
  • They respond this scholar said its halal, so I
    dont care what the other scholars say, they are
  • Who are you getting your deen from? Allah and his
    prophet, or this scholar?
  • Arrogance is rejecting the truth and looking
    down at people

  • When we look at the opinion of the scholar
  • Must see his evidence from Quran and sunnah
  • Be aware of selecting an opinion just because you
    like it.
  • Or following blindly because other people are
    doing it
  • when those who have been followed
    disassociate themselves from those who followed
    them, and they all see the punishment, and
    cut off from them are the ties of relationship
    - Quran 1166

  • Differing opinions amongst scholars
  • lack of clear evidence
  • They perform ijtihad
  • came up with rulings and conclusions based on
    evidence they had at that time

  • The imams admitted they might commit errors, and
    that in origin, we should follow Allah and the
    prophet peace be upon him.
  • Imam Shafii said If I said something against a
    hadith of the prophet, smite my opinion against
    the wall and practice the Hadith of the prophet.
  • Imam Abu Hanifa said it is haram to follow my
    ruling unless you know my evidence (from quran
    and hadith).
  • Imam Malik said we can take the words of
    everyone or reject them, except the words of the
    owner of this grave (meaning prophet Muhammad
    peace be upon him).

  • Its great that so many sisters wear it now
  • We must remember why we are doing it (for Allahs
  • To elevate women from the level of lust object
    and mistress, to a respectable honored human
  • We must refer to the Arabic Quran
  • translation of Quran is not the Quran itself
  • could lose the original meaning

Before Hijab
After Hijab
  • And tell the believing women to reduce some of
    their vision and guard their private parts and
    not expose their adornment except that which
    necessarily appears thereof and to throw a
    portion of their Khimar over their jaib (chests)
    and not expose their adornment except to And
    let them not stamp their feet to make known what
    they conceal of their adornment Quran Surah
  • O Prophet! Say to your wives and daughters and
    the women of the believers, that they should cast
    upon themselves their Jilbab. That is closer for
    them to be known as such and not be
    molested/harassed Quran Surah al-Ahzab59)

  • So, what is hijab?

  • People were about the entere othman bin Affans
    house to kill him
  • To protect him, she started showing her hair, for
    hope they will refrain from entering the house of
    shame of looking at her hair
  • (men back then lowered their gaze)
  • Othman told her
  • Put back your khimar, for if I was to be cut into
    many pieces, is better than committing the haram
    of showing your hair
  • The men entered and attacked him
  • She tried to protect him and two of her fingers
    were amputated with the sword

    of Allah

  • Last but not least
  • We are not perfect. We all make sins
  • I know a lot are taking this great step into
    wearing the headscarf, and are slowly trying to
    become familiar with it
  • But we should all have the intention )???) to
    improve ourselves gradually
  • We are doing it for the sake of Allah
  • Because our main purpose of creation is to
    worship Allah

    he forbade

    people who wear more modest types of hijab by
    calling them
