How proud we are of pagan symbols adopted into Islam by misguided Muslims at the start of the fall of the khilafah. Let the facts speak for themselves: The origins of the Crescent & Sun/star are Turkic from ancient times, pre-Islamic. The Turks believed in Shamanisim and more importantly the one supreme Sky God (Tanri) Continue Reading

Sometimes I find inspiration on Tumblr, yet other times it drags my spirits down to the lowest depths. Tonight is the latter. Witnessing the truth of the human spirit that we often aim to celebrate reveals the darkness that resides within all of us.  Optimism, like anything else that is good or wholesome, requires effort Continue Reading

I respectfully disagree with this statement. If this is true, then that means that the numerous scholars, Ulama and many other Muslims that are tortured, murdered and unfairly incarcerated in the Kingdom of Saud should be ignored, which in fact condones such behaviour? The absolute imbalance in…
Calm downnnnnnnnnnnnnn son.   Have you tried contacting the king or contacting someone who has the ability to pass along a message?   He is still a muslim and you are obligated to advise him and make dua for him..IN PRIVATE.  No respected scholar today advises the unlearned to slander and expose the kings sins in public r to rally against him.  This is the way of the Mubtadiyah. The way of Ahlus Sunnah is to obey the ruler even if he is an oppressor.  Just look at the example of Al Hajjah who used to massacre muslims and drink wine over them and he even killed a scholar while the scholar was holding on to the ka’aba.  Yet the ulema have said that obeying him is obligatory.    Bottom line is this, Saudi arabia is the land of tawheed, Land of islaam, land of the sunnah and the land of Salafiyah.  Saudi arabia does everything in its power to benefit the dawah.  We praise them for their achievements and we advise them when they make mistakes.  I’m done with this conversation.   Asalamu Alaikum
Wa Alaykumussalaam, Your condescending tone is uncalled for. I wasn’t exposing, nor am I calling for the exposition of any of the ‘kings’ personal flaws as a Muslim. As a government, as a monarchy, they perpetrate many wrongs. Obeying them if you’re living under their rule does not imply silence in the face of oppression or wrongdoing. I don’t recall suggesting an open revolt or mass violence or anything of the sort. Your original statement said that silence is called for. I’m challenging that, and nothing else at this point.  Silence is not called for. That’s like saying that every person that speaks against a ruler or government is threatening to overthrow that authority? This is flawed logic. 
Silence in public yes, In private we advise them and try to correct them.  even in your response to my original post you were exposing them and speaking ill of them. I will not continue with this conversation, If you want to see Faatawa on this issue inshaAllaah i can provide that but me and you are far too ignorant to debate these issues.  Ma salamah.   (Remember your salaams next time you want to contact me buddy) 
Aslm, Firstly, I did not contact you. I simply reblogged something you posted and expressed my own views on the matter. So no salaams was called for. Secondly, correct your tone. Don’t on one hand profess to be an upholder of the Sunnah, and on the other discard it in your manner and conduct when addressing others. Thirdly, you don’t know my age, my background, or what knowledge I may or may not hold, so don’t assume such an arrogant tone, nor such a disrespectful disposition if you consider akhlaaq to be of any value to a Muslim.  Lastly, don’t contaminate issues with references to fatawaa that has nothing to do with what we’re talking about. This is not a debate about the overthrowing of a legitimate Muslim government or ruler (and I’m not suggesting that the family of Saud are legitimate or otherwise). This is simply a debate about speaking out against a wrong, or remaining silent about it. Your responses reflect your naivety on matters of engagement, since you expect every layman to have access to the highest authorities in every society. That is neither practical, not logical.  But if your logic is to be applied based on your original statement, then half the world of recognised Muslim scholars that have, and continue to speak out against the family of Saud are in fact heretics?  By the way, heretic is a very broad term, so if by chance you’re using it in the context of implying that such a person would be a disbeliever, then I would caution you on the basis of the following ahadith:
“Ibn Umar related that the Holy Prophet said: If a Muslim calls another kafir, then if he is a kafir let it be so; otherwise, he [the caller] is himself a kafir.” (Abu Dawud, Book of Sunna, edition published by Quran Mahal, Karachi, vol. iii, p. 484)
“Abu Zarr reported that the Holy Prophet said: No man accuses another man of being a sinner, or of being a kafir, but it reflects back on him if the other is not as he called him.” (Bukhari, Book of Ethics; Book 78, ch. 44)
So  perhaps you should calm down so that you don’t become reckless with your imaan, Insha-Allah.  Was Salaam.
