    The ulema of yore were indeed much more Allah-fearing; we now have just a handful of those.

    majority today lack the guts, and are distracted by various other goals.

    Have you considered this?

    The lack of activity against The Study Quran and Tahir ul shows the immense veracity of the fatawa in Husam al-Haramayn.

    How, you ask? Why am I connecting the two?

    Well, Husam al-Haramayn contains fatawa of kufr against five kafirs from thirty-three leading scholars of Arab Sharif.

    Conversely, how many refutations from leading authorities have we had against The Study Quran or Tahir...? A handful...?

    This shows that attaining fatawa from ulama is no mean feat.

    So what it does emphatically prove is that those 33 ulama in Husam al-Haramayn were fully convinced of the kufr of the five kafirs.

    This is despite Husam al-Haramayn being over 100 years ago where there was no mass communication. Today it is much easier to investigate but scholars still lag...

    This doesn't mean The Study Quran doesn't contain kufr. It absolutely does! The point of the post is to show that many ulama won't issue a verdict of kufr even when it's more apparent than the midday sun yet a whole 33 ulama attested to the kufr of devbandis which shows how clear their kufr is!

    astaghfirullah a thousand times.

    this "shaykh" is telling us that defending the tanzeeh of Allah ta'ala from the attacks of the heretics is same as "discussing refined theological issues inside the closed doors of a mosque" and should therefore take a back seat in our attempts to battle social waywardness.

    this is not speech of a scholar, it is the speech of an ignorant and materialist social activist with debilitating myopia and a misplaced zeal. Fie upon such scholars.

    he is warning us that if didn't prioritize issues his way, we will have these ills plague our own homesteads.

    thanks for your concern but no thanks.

    We look to Allah subHanu wa ta'ala as our Guide and Protector and that of our future generations. We refuse to relegate education about His dhaat and sifaat to some unspecified future time when society shall have been cured of all its ills. We believe in a holistic education with an aqida-first approach as has been the way of the Ahlussunnah across generations.

    Trivialising aqida issues with word games might be your forte, calling your bluff is ours.

    alHamdulillahi 'ala zaalik wa huwa ni'mal wakeel.

    Dear scholars,

    When you speak, always consider the laity (awaam). Give them an inch and they'll take a mile.

    When you talk about the priorities of ulama AND THEN conflate social ills with aqidah ones and PRIORITISE social problems whilst downplaying core aqidah points - what will the layman take away?

    Exactly that anyone who now talks about these aqidah issues is not with the times!

    You're giving a heyday to sulh kullis. Those that fail to recognise deobandis as being outside Ahlu's Sunnah will share your words endlessly as you've given them ample ammunition.

    If you want to highlight social ills, do so. We all should, nay, MUST. But where's your wisdom that the Qur'an calls for? You're preaching to awaam, don't forget. They'll take your conflation and shout: 'no more need to defend that Allah ta'ala is free from falsehood. Shaykh said we must talk about drugs and alcohol instead.'

    This is typical filibuster.

    And if you must compare, why use those examples that are from the necessities of Ahlu's Sunnah? Why couldn't you talk about actual secondary and tertiary issues? Why didn't you say: 'there's a bigger priority to tackle social ills than debate about raf' al-yadayn.'

    (And by the way, don't prioritise it, but do tell us your views on deobandis who to this day write and believe lying is included within Divine Power. Take your time, don't prioritise).

    Also, do tell us what's more important: aqidah or actions? Is it acceptable that a man believes lying to be included within Divine Power but he stays away from drugs and alcohol?

    Are only societal ills ills? Aren't aqidah ills ills?

    Like I said, no one is saying highlighting societal ills isn't important. But there are ways to do it. Creating a standoff between aqidah and social ills truly downplays obligatory aqidah points.

    A better statement would be:

    'Use your jumu'ah khutbah effectively. Alongside critical aqidah points such as refuting the mutazilite heresy that Allah ta'ala can lie and which deobandis have revived and that believing Ali to be superior to Abu Bakr is innovation - our khatibs should also use the 52 Friday's in a year to highlight drug problems, alcohol, fornication, gambling. These societal ills surround us and plague every other Muslim home.

    Atheism, Darwinism, perennialism, sulh kullism are also rife. Our khatibs should highlight these too.

    Use the 52 weeks to cover as many pressing issues as possible.'

    ---
    See, with the above, nothing is downplayed. Sulh kullis don't have a field day. Simultaneously, those khatibs who never touch on drugs and alcohol are also given a shake up whilst the primary importance of aqidah is maintained.

    ---
    Allah ta'ala grant us wisdom.
    Allah ta'ala Knows best.

    All the posts of Honourable brother Aqdas should be compiled into a book.

    They are very good and present the teachings of the Ahlu Sunnah in a very simplified and constructive manner.

    May Allah Azzawajal bless brother Aqdas for the work he is doing for the Deen and the Ahlu Sunnah.

    The accusation we get a lot is that you only take from subcontinent scholars. You don't accept any of the Arab ulama.

    Oh, yeh?

    Then who's Shaykh Sayid Fodeh?

    His post regarding deeming Christians to be polytheists is coolness to the eyes in our times of darkness.

    It's not about Arab and non-Arab. It's about who sticks to the ijma'a of Ahlu's Sunnah and abides by akhlaq al-ulama.

    The cumulative sin of every dog of hell who is attacking Amīr Muawiyah is upon those speakers who have created negativity regarding this blessed companion.

    People like Tahir ul, Abdul Qadir, Haroon Rashid have created and exacerbated this menace and will face the consequences on judgement day.

    It's become so bad that people have become bold enough to post their opposition to Amīr Muawiyah knowing there won't be much reprisal.

    My respect to those Sunnis who spoke out. We can't just leave it to ulama. Some might not know of the fitnah online and others may not want to get involved. So Sunni public also have a role to play.

    Those few ulama who do speak out, utmost respect.

    What Sunnis must do:

    1. Don't like any post that is negative towards Amīr Muawiyah
    2. Unfriend the poster
    3. If you see other Sunnis liking, warn them

    I speak out to defend Hazrat Muawiyah because I have no reputation to guard. I don't have to worry about who I'll upset if I speak bluntly. I'd rather face my beloved RasulAllah ﷺ with him knowing I did my little bit to defend his sahabi.

    There's teaching the Qur'an properly and taking time and then there's this disease where parents don't even send their kids to learn the Holy Qur'an in the first place. I have seen this become more prevalent and it only hits home when lo and behold one day the person gets hit with a difficulty he can't resolve easily like Sihr, Ain etc Then he holds his head in his hands thinking he doesn't know how to read the Verses of the Holy Qur'an. Parents should think and think ahead....act responsibly

    My dear Sunni teachers of Qur'an!

    Teach the qayidah well. VERY well. Do NOT move a student to the next page until s/he has mastered the current page.

    Yes, you'll be spending a relatively long time on qayidah and students and/or parents might even complain about the slow pace but take my word, it's worth it.

    Explain to them why you're not rushing.

    In the long run, you'll see it pay off. Would you rather a student struggles to read Qur'an all their life because they were rushed during qayidah or do qayidah once, properly, and find Qur'an recitation easy...

    Be very strict. Don't let mistakes off. E.g. if a qāf is pronounced as kāf, stop the student. Very soon they'll realise and rectify.

    Mark my words. They will come to the end of a rigorous qayidah training and then...

    ...they'll start reading the Qur'an by themselves!

    one should read, memorise, and understand Quran and hadith as much as possible. So, one also needs to learn arabic language.

    When a person reads and understands Quran, he talks with Allah subhA'anu wa ta'ala, and when a person reads and understands hadith, he listens to (or talks with) RasulAllah alaihi afDalus salaat wat-tasleem.

    this will inrease wisdom.

    It is mentioned in Shifa Shareef:
    Whoever believes in the Oneness of Allah and in Prophet-hood, and (also) bears witness to the Prophet-hood of Hazrat Mohammed (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him), but also (simultaneously) believes that the prophets could have possibly lied - although he may claim some sort of logic behind it, by his own rationale - is, by consensus, a disbeliever.

    (Also quoted by Ala Hazrat in Al'Soo wa alIqaab Ala alMaseehi alKazzab)

    When one reads Imam Bajuri's monograph on essential Islamic creed, you will notice point number 42 mentions 'sidq' (truthfulness) as being a necessary (wajib) attribute of Prophets.

    What is wajib, it's opposite is muhal (impossible).

    Notice, Ahlu's Sunnah believe lying is impossible even for the Prophets, never mind our Lord Himself!

    Whereas devbandis and their flag bearers like Nuh Keller and Faraz Rabbani admit the possibility of falsehood even in divine speech!

    We seek the refuge of Allah!

    Of course you can speak against innovators, in fact its obligatory as mentioned by Imam Nawawi in His Al Adhkar under the chapter "Guarding the Tongue" where he says:

    Warning and Advising the Muslims against Evil – There are several perspectives to this, of which one is: Declaring someone unreliable in the field of narrating hadeeth and giving testimony. This is permissible to do, according to the Ijmaa’ (consensus of the Muslim scholars). Rather, it becomes obligatory due to the need for it. end quote

    So from this we can see that when there is danger of the Religion being corrupted and people being misguided then it is obligatory to speak out against these individuals to warn the Ummah. This ruling definitely applies today to the study Qur'an, false pirs, fake fat bellied sufis whose followers say they can walk on water but can barely fit into their bath tub without almost falling over and drowning and the list goes on....

    Someone said:

    'When you get the question: Salam Shaykh. What do you think about Shaykh...

    Erm, I have a life. You should get one too. It's free.'

    ---
    Wrong answer. Would the speaker say that about his own shaykh too...

    Or would he praise him to the sky?

    So, as you can see, it's not what he would answer at all times. It's a pick and choose scenario.

    Isn't it the responsibility of ulama to warn against heretic scholars? What if I asked about The Study Quran and Hossein Nasr? Would this shaykh not warn me to stay away from kufr? Why would he knowingly expose me to perennialism?

    If you can respond positively about your shaykh then why can't you respond negatively about an innovator? Which is more important?

    Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

    مَا مِنْ آدَمِيٍّ إِلا فِي رَأْسِهِ حِكْمَةٌ بِيَدِ مَلَكٍ فَإِذَا تَوَاضَعَ قِيلَ لِلْمَلَكِ ارْفَعْ حِكْمَتَهُ وَإِذَا تَكَبَّرَ قِيلَ لِلْمَلَكِ ضَعْ حِكْمَتَهُ

    There is no human being except that the wisdom of his mind is in the hands of an angel. When he shows humility, the angel is ordered to increase his wisdom. When he shows arrogance, the angel is ordered to decrease his wisdom.

    Source: Mu’jam Al-Kabeer 12771, Grade: Hasan

    Please check this and the reference though as I cut and paste it when I came across the Hadith. If it is indeed a Narration that is Hasan, then it answers your question.

    Non-Muslim parliamentarians speak out against the U.S. attack on Muslim travel.

    Yet,

    Muslim scholars refuse to speak out against the U.S. academic who attacks Muslim beliefs.

    Our scholars aren't even as principled as politicians...?

    not only should scholars focus on knowledge, but they should also be worldly-wise and know the world in which we live.

    one can strive to 'gain' knowledge - but what is the method to improve wisdom?

    Scholars shouldn't only have knowledge, but wisdom too.

    The efforts of Shaykh Asrar are truly admirable. Apart from the plethora of knowledge that he bears, he has a wise heart.

    He has looked at the UK climate and seen that atheism, darwinism and agnosticism are amongst our biggest challenges.

    So his efforts are concentrated on these areas nowadays.

    He also uses his lectures to teach basic aqidah which is, again, a wise move.

    Years ago, he destroyed wahabism as that was the need of the time.

    It seems this young man recognises the huge responsibility that scholars have.

    He considers the biggest fitnahs of any given month/year and forcefully refutes it.

    There's no need to take pictures where the blessed green dome is in the background.

    Is that the etiquette due to it? Being in the background? #Alahazrat said whenever you're in the holy city and your glance falls upon the dome, turn towards it!

    And here we are, not around the city; but in the vicinity of the Prophet ﷺ with our backs to it.

    And even if your back isn't towards it, and you're facing it, where is the attention of the person who sees your photo? Upon you or the blessed dome? Isn't the attention divided at the very least?

    What are trying to show here?

    If you want a picture of the green dome, take a picture OF the green dome - not a picture of YOU and that the dome is ALSO there.
