Worldly Scholars


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم 

Ibn al-Qayyim said, “The Mufti and the Governor cannot govern fairly unless they have two kinds of knowledge. The first is the understanding of the reality, being totally involved in it and being able to derive facts from what happened using evidence, indications and signs, until they are totally informed. The second is the understanding of Allah’s rulings depicted in His Book or through the sayings of His Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and understanding how to apply them to the reality under consideration.” 
 
Also, Abu Batah al-Akbari said, “Imaam Ahmed said, ‘It is not acceptable for a man to establish himself as Mufti unless he has five characteristics. First, he must have the intention. If he does not have an intention, there will be no light in him or in his speech. Second, he must have the knowledge, tolerance, dignity and tranquillity. Third, he has to be sure of his speech and his knowledge. Fourth, he must be self sufficient (financially). If not he will be used by people. Fifth, he must know the people.”
 
Ibn al-Qayyim commented on this saying, “Knowledge of the people is a great trait that every Mufti and Governor should have. They should be involved with the people, be very knowledgeable in enjoining the good and forbidding the evil, and then applying the one to the other. Otherwise they will do more harm than good. If they are not knowledgeable about people, they might mistake the oppressor for the oppressed and the rightful for the wrong-doer, and vice versa. 

If they are ignorant of the people, their circumstances and their customs, they will not be able to distinguish between the good and the bad. They have to be very knowledgeable in people’s cunning, deception, fraud, customs and traditions. A fatwa is subject to change depending on the time, place, customs and traditions and that is all from Allah’s religion.”
 
Scholars who sell themselves for worldly possessions. The Messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, “Keenness on money and worldly belongings will ruin someone’s religion more effectively than a couple of hungry wolves can ruin in a herd of sheep, if left alone with it.” [Sunnan Daramhi]
 
Ibn al-Qayyim said, “When people of knowledge prefer this worldly life and love it, they will definitely say what is not true about Allah, in their Fatawa, judgments, sayings and actions.” 

This is due to the fact that Allah’s rulings are not always in accordance with people’s desires especially those in positions of power and those who follow dubious paths. Their needs are always fulfilled in disagreement with the Truth. 

If the scholars and Governors have a liking to power and follow dubious paths, they will have their way only by using what opposes the truth. Beware of these two types of scholars. 

Those who have lost contact with reality and those who prefer worldly affairs especially in matters concerning Defending the Ummah, enjoining the good and forbidding the evil, and everything that concerns tyrant rulers. 

Ibn Taymiyah has described both types of scholars in one saying, “It is imperative, concerning the oppression against us, to take the opinion of the true religious people who have experience in real life, not the people who love this world and whose views on religion are not in depth. Their opinions and the opinions of those scholars who lack contact with reality and life.”

Day 7 / Masjidil Haram, Swissôtel, Kaabah

Di suatu sudut di bahagian bawah Masjidil Haram, ramai minum
air zamzam
Janji berjumpa di satu tempat 
Selamat menjamu selera pada yang tidak berpuasa
Banyaknya makanan untuk sarapan ni
Berselera makan
Waktu Zohor di depan Kaabah
Permandangan dari bilik Swissotel Makkah
Cincin silver baru dengan batu Firus, wife punya pun
warna yang sama 
Layanan istimewa bila dapat merasa duduk di Hotel ni
Bergambar di dalam bilik

Day 6 Part 2 / Masjidil Haram, Swissôtel, Kaabah

Perjalanan sekitar Masjidil Haram
Abah dan mak menunggu di lobby hotel, saspen pun ada
Permandangan dari bilik hotel, SubhanAllah menakjubkan
Rupanya tinggal di sini
Suasana di luar Masjidil Haram
Paling best bila berpeluang bersolat di hadapan Kaabah
Dapat bersolat di hadapan Kaabah, perasaan yang
tidak dapat digambarkan
Lampu-lampu cantik menghiasi siling masjid
Sungguh mempersonakan lampu-lampu ni
Aktiviti window shopping setelah selesai solat Isya, banyak jenis kurma

Dalam urusan dunia kita sentiasa melakukan penambah baikan, bagaimana dengan urusan akhirat? 


Manafaat masa yg ada untuk mengingati Allah. Contohnya ketika menaiki kereta; berzikir, baca Al-Quran. 


Baca sekali Surah Al-Ikhlas seperti membaca 1/3 Al-Quran. 


Amalan baca Surah Al-Kahfi pada hari Jumaat. Dijaga Allah, dilimpahi nur sehingga Jumaat akan datang. 


Hafal 10 ayat pertama Surah Al-Kahfi dilindung dari fitnah dajjal. 


Hadis 35. 


Apabila umatku melakukan 15 maksiat, pasti Allah akan turunkan bala; apabila sumber kekayaan negara dirasai beredar di kalangan orang tertentu sahaja, amanah dijadikan sumber keuntungan, zakat dijadikan hutang (tidak bayar zakat) (1. fitrah, 2. Pendapatan), suami ikut telunjuk isteri, anak derhaka, derhaka dengan emak tetapi baik dgn kawan, ...

Surah Al-Ankabut Ayat 45


ٱتْلُ مَآ أُوحِىَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ وَأَقِمِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ ۖ إِنَّ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ تَنْهَىٰ عَنِ ٱلْفَحْشَآءِ وَٱلْمُنكَرِ ۗ وَلَذِكْرُ ٱللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ

Bacalah serta ikutlah (wahai Muhammad) akan apa yang diwahyukan kepadamu dari Al-Quran, dan dirikanlah sembahyang (dengan tekun); sesungguhnya sembahyang itu mencegah dari perbuatan yang keji dan mungkar; dan sesungguhnya mengingati Allah adalah lebih besar (faedahnya dan kesannya); dan (ingatlah) Allah mengetahui akan apa yang kamu kerjakan.
