    search the forum, it is an old and dead issue which has been answered.

    it is useless to talk to these hypocrites, because;

    a) disrespect and hypocrisy is in their upbringing

    the shair of shaykh sa'adi rahimahullah, which I quoted here, befits them very well.

    خشت اول چوں نہد معمار کج
    تا ثریا مے رود دیوار کج


    If a builder lays the first brick bent
    then the entire wall will rise slanted to the skies.

    their upbringing is the disrespect of RasulAllah alaihi afDalus salat wat-tasleem, and veneration and defense of their elders.

    b) or, if it is not from their childhood, then it is due to their bad company

    لَّا تَجِدُ قَوْمًا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ يُوَادُّونَ مَنْ حَادَّ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَلَوْ كَانُوا آبَاءَهُمْ أَوْ أَبْنَاءَهُمْ أَوْ إِخْوَانَهُمْ أَوْ عَشِيرَتَهُمْ ۚ مجادلة - 22
    You will not find the people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, befriending those who oppose Allah and His Noble Messenger, even if they are their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their tribesmen;

    so, bad company, and learning from hypocrites has destroyed their iman.

    c) or if it is not due to the above two then, it is only because;

    فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى الْأَبْصَارُ وَلَٰكِن تَعْمَى الْقُلُوبُ الَّتِي فِي الصُّدُورِ
    (46 - الحج)
    So, it is not the eyes that are blind, but it is the hearts in the bosoms, that are blind.

    read TKM, if you have not already, and then compare it with their questions/challenges.

    As Salāmu ʿAlaykum Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Baraktu,

    There is an error on page 202. (see my last post):

    "If one says that the Prophet ﷺ passed away [young] even before he had facial hair, or that he lived in Tahert or denies that the Prophet ﷺ did not live in Tihāmah – such a denier will be executed as he rejects the Prophet’s (ﷺ) well-known attributes."

    irfan (faqir) welcome back to the forum and thanks to the link and comment on the recent Istigatha debate based on the snippets you have watched.

    You was advertising and praising Nuh’s article everywhere including this forum when it was released. Any comments after reading The Killer Mistake

    will this book ever be published in an actual book that we can buy?

    On page 2 (page 7 of PDF) there are a few errors (bold font):

    This is also not without a precedent. Imām Ibn Ásākir is a famous Ĥadīth scholar and historian of the sixth century. He was a prolific author and many of his books are multi-volume works. Imām Dhahabi, lists some of the; in addition to scores of short works. His Tarikh is well-known, but he is more famous for m in his Siyar thus: Tārīkh Dimashq in 16,000 pages, Muwāfaqāt in 1440 pages, Áwālī Mālik in 1000 pagesTabyīn Kadhib al-Muftarī, in which he refutes false accusations against Imām Abu’l Ĥasan al-Ashárī.

    by the way, for those who ask if keller knows about 'The Killer Mistake' and if he's been sent it etc. - yes, he knows about it.

    it is up to him now to read it and take the appropriate action of either retracting and/or responding.

    it is very damaging to the ummah to release an article which is riddled with mistakes and fallacies and even sleight of hand and when this is bought to the authors attention [TKM, pdf p.90]:

    Does Keller have to answer anyone on Judgement Day? It remains to be seen whether he will make any amends for such heinous slander or follow the Deobandi lead and brush it away as a fly upon his nose.

    I don't understand what part of tasawwuf or the shadhili way it is to ignore a response? this is the honour of the Messenger sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam so a sufi shaykh should be indebted to anyone who corrects him - especially for something so important.

    I don't understand how getting involved in a debate which is beyond your grasp is part of tasawwuf but then ignoring any kind of response is also tasawwuf.

    AbdalQadir time to move along! will check pm's.

    yes i too was looking for it, but it seems to have silently slipped out of the website

    this is the new link to his official site: http://untotheone.com/ (if you type in shadhiliteachings.com, it redirects to this one)

    on the first page of a google search, if you type in iman + kufr + takfir + nuh keller, all you get is this link - http://www.central-mosque.com/aqeedah/imanktak.htm - which has keller's article. the rest of the links are (bihamdillah, references to refutations of him, the primary being the killer mistake)

    3 pages of search results are all i ever see (mostly) and until three google pages, there is NO other link to the article written down by keller.

    well done and jazak Allah to all the brothers and sisters who publicized the rebuttal enough to gain popular search rankings, along with the obvious thanks to abu Hasan for refuting keller.

    ----

    please save the central mosque page if you need a reference to keller's original piece. i suspect that too might vanish soon.

    now i have a fiqh question for keller and mureeds - does a silent deletion count as tawbah and retraction?

    Perhaps the site is down. Let us just wait.

    Apologies, was on mobile and turns out screenshots come out quite large. Will you include a footnote in the next version?

    Understood, had no idea that Haadith (something created) translated into English was accident, or that accident had the secondary meaning. I had the common usage of accident in mind, basically that which occurs unintentionally.

    From the Oxford dictionaries:
    http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/accident

    For a commoner reading this most definitely would require a footnote or using the word Haadith in the same way Mawlana Cassim Afthab sahib did in his Bahar e Shariat translation. Otherwise, I fear someone may get the wrong idea, according to the common usage of the word.

    If my belief is unclear then I most definitely believe that the universe is Haadith, and as a caution I do tawbah, ruju and tajdeed e iman if my words were seen as kufriyya as that was not my intention,
    Ashadu An La Ilaha Il Allah Wa Ashadu Anna Muhammadan Abduhu Wa Rasuluh.
    May Allah (Azza Wa Jall) send His endless peace and blessings one Sayyiduna RasulAllah

    (SalAllahu alayhi wassalam).
