Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas, r.a.:

The Prophet, pbuh, sent Mu'adh to Yemen and said, "Invite the people to testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and I am Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), and if they obey you to do so, then teach them that Allah has enjoined on them five prayers in every day and night (in twenty-four hours), and if they obey you to do so, then teach them that Allah has made it obligatory for them to pay the Zakat from their property and it is to be taken from the wealthy among them and given to the poor."

Nigerian situation seems to paint a much more complex scenario around democracy and its branches.

Some Nigerian Islamic Scholars are strongly of the view that democracy is a practice that is imposed by Western, foreign and secular origin, and has nothing to do with Islamic practices. Other scholars argue that democracy, voting and even the concept of sovereignty on which much of an entire edifice of democracy is built deny the fundamental Islamic affirmation of the sovereignty of Allah, and is therefore a form of idolatry.

For the later, the injunctions of Sharia and provisions of the Constitution or any other law are quite parallel,and at event of any conflict, the former prevails.

On Friday 15th of February (the supposed eve of general election), the writer went out of his Lagos Mainland to Lagos Island in quest of the view of other Imams. The chosen mosque was Lekki Central Mosque. The Imam, Sheik Ridwan Jamiu got the writer bewildered by unequivocally declaring voting halal and responsibility of Muslims!

The Imam hinged his argument on the premises that choosing a leader by democratic means is replicating Islamic shura system, which allows for consultation and consensus for a decision to be made.

He postulated that democracy is not Kufr and doesn't go against Islam as long as it conforms with the aims of Sharia, namely protection of Deen, protection of life, Protection of property, protection of honor and dignity .

The Imam therefore ,enjoyed the Muslims to go out in groups and vote for candidates whom they feel have all good characteristics and qualities of leadership without allowing any form of inducement.


Saudi Crown Prince: Why does Pakistan honor him? Look at his ties with India. Look at his Crimes at home.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

The Saudi Crown Prince, MBS, received a huge welcome in Pakistan.

There were two aspect of this welcome:

  1. Political and national. The Crown Prince is seen as a national ally.

  2. The Saudi crown prince is seen as an Islamic leader, protector the two holiest cities of Islam, Makka and Madinah.

The first cause is dead wrong . The Crown Prince is a friend of India, Pakistan's deadly enemy.

India has $28 billion bilateral trade with Saudi Arabia,

in 2016 PM Modi visited Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has strongly condemned the attack in Kashmir on February 14 which killed at least 44 Indian troops.

Saudi Arabia said it stands firmly with India on this issue.

Do Pakistanis not know that MBS is going to be in India on February 19 and will discuss joint moves against "terrorism?"

About Islam, we know that KINGSHIP IS FORBIDDEN IN ISLAM. Only Caliphate is allowed.

Saudi Arabia's internal security, at several billion dollars, is in western hands.

The murder of Kashgoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Turkey indicates that in Saudi Arabia there is NO PLACE FOR DIFFERENCE OF OPINION.

The Saudis have admitted that the murder was committed by the Crown Prince's INNER circle though they deny that he himself ordered it/.

Wake up Pakistanis. Imran Khan is no friend of Islam. Even the blasphemer was acquitted and Maulana Rizvi was arrested.

The JI chief said the present government was also following the policies of the previous rulers and was least concerned about solve the peoples' problems. The present rulers and opposition were busy in a competition of abuses and falsehood.

Sirajul Haq said it was not fit for a Muslim ruler to go back on his word as the Quran and the Sunnah enjoined the faithful to honour their pledge. He said if the rulers wanted to take a U turn, they should withdraw the raise in the prices and provide some relief to the people.,

He said that the problems facing the country and the nation could be solved only with the enforcement of the Islamic system. He said the JI was striving for the Nizam e Mustafa and on coming to power, the JI would abolish the interest based economic system and ensure equitable distribution of the national resources. A uniform system of education and health would be introduced for the rich and the poor. The judiciary would decide cases in accordance with the Quranic teachings. The aged citizens and the unemployed youth would get special allowances.
