The basis for the problem the Jamaa’aat have with the Rightly-Guided Khulafaa’

 

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The I’tiqaad of the Haqq & Sunnah, & the Companions of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم  in the issue of governance & leadership is fundamentally at odds with the misguided desires of the jamaa’aat & the Khawaarij. The issue is not a problem with the states that are present today.  The problem is with what Allaah عزّ وجل  legislated in regards to this issue (of governance & leadership).

For that reason, they already have – if you contemplate & reflect deeply – you will find that they have a problem, even with the state of the rightly-guided Khilaafah.  When they look at the Khulafaa’ Ar-Raashideen (the Rightly-Guided Khulafaa' - Aboo Bakr, 'Umar, 'Uthmaan, & 'Alee) exercising rulership & authority by their own personal & individual power, without referring back to anyone else (to examine & review their decisions), [the jamaa'aat] have a problem here.  But what they can’t do against the rightly-guided Khilaafah, they move on to disparaging & criticizing Mu’aawiyyah رضي الله عنه وأرضاه, as is well-known from Sayyid Qutb.

 

So don’t think that the affair stops at a specific point, even if most of them are blind-followers, instigators, & oblivious to the realities of the religion.

 

So may Allaah rectify the affairs.

The One who stays in his home, he is a shaheed (martyr), even if he did not die



 The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:  “There is no man (in a land where) the plague breaks out, so he stays in his house, patient & hopefully expecting Allaah’s reward, knowing that nothing will afflict him except what Allaah has already written for him to happen, except that he will get the reward like the shaheed (martyr).” [Saheeh - Reported by Ahmad (26139)]

Ibn Hajr رحمه الله said:  “what is understood from it’s text is that whoever can be described by the characteristics mentioned (in this hadeeth), he receives the reward of the shaheed, even if he doesn’t die.”  [Fathul-Baaree (10/194)]

‘Aa’ishah رضي الله عنها said:  “I asked the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم about the plague, so he told me that it is a punishment that Allaah sends upon whomsoever He Wills, & that Allaah made it a mercy for the believers, there being no one when the plague breaks out, so he remains in his land, patient, hopefully expecting (to be rewarded for it), knowing that nothing will afflict him except what Allaah has already written for him to happen, except that he will get the reward like the shaheed (martyr).”  [al-Bukhaaree]

Whoever wants to advise the one in authority..... a tremendous answer by Shaykh Muhammad Al-'Anjaree

The Noble Shaykh Aboo 'Uthmaan Muhammad Al-'Anjaree -  حفظه الله ورعاه -  was asked:

"We want from you some naseehah towards the Dawlah (the State) on how it can get rid of the jamaa'ah of Ikhwaan (Al-Muslimeen)?"


The Shaykh answered:

"The State is not advised in this way.  This is the way of the Ikhwaanee!!

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم  (mentions that) whoever wants to advise the one in authority - & here my noble brother is al-faariq (the distinguishing factor between the Sunnee & the person of bid'a).

The Sunnee, if he wants to give naseehah to the person in authority & those he has given authority, he goes to him in private (to advise him).  So if he implements & follows this naseehah , then that is good, & if not then he has carried out what was upon him to do.

Like this the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم  ordered us."

“We are upon Clarity” - Shaykh Muhammad ‘Uthmaan Al-‘Anjaree

***
From Allaah’s blessings & favors upon us is that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم left us upon the path of Clarity, as (comes) in his saying (صلى الله عليه وسلم):
“Indeed I left you upon Baydaa’ (clear guidance), it’s night is
like it’s day (in it’s clarity),  & no one deviates from it after me
except that he is destroyed.”  [1]

And the Lord of Might & Power جلّ وعلا  guaranteed the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم the protection & preservation of His Book, when He – the Most High – said:
“Indeed it is We Who sent down the Dhikr [the Qur’aan],
& it is Us Who will preserve & protect it.” [Al-Hijr (15):9]

So this tremendous blessing was bestowed by Al-Mawlaa [Allaah] so the Deen, with it’s nusoos (texts) & it’s ahkaam (rulings), remains far & removed from deviation, distortion, & alternation, & He increased us in His Favor & Blessings - سبحانه – as (comes) in the hadeeth of Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم with his saying:
“Indeed Allaah will raise up for this Ummah at the end of every
one hundred years those who will revive & renew the affairs of
their Deen for them.”  [2]

And tajdeed (revival & renewal) here means the removal of bid’a & the innovated desires, & reviving & purifying the guidance of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم from the deviation & distortion of those who go beyond bounds, & the false interpretations of the liars.

And the Favor of Allaah upon us is not restricted to what was mentioned previously.  Rather he صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah who are
manifest & apparent (upon the Haqq).  They will not be harmed
by those who abandon & forsake them, nor those who openly
oppose them, up until the command of Allaah comes & they are
firmly upon that.”

So this is a Divine guarantee of a group of the ‘Ulamaa’ remaining manifest & clear for the Ummah, those who adhere to the Book of Allaah & the guidance of His Prophet.  And by that, the ‘Aqeedah of Ahlul-Haqq remains & is permanent until Yawmul-Qiyaamah, by Divine protection & decree that Allaah has decreed (to come about).

And indeed we have seen – affirming the truthfulness of that – a man from the remnants of the Salafus-Saalihرحمهم الله - & he is the ‘Allaamah Al-Albaanee, who made easy for all of the Ummah to distinguish the authentic hadeeth from the weak.  And what is amazing is that he [was] one man, a non-‘arab, who had no one to support or aid him except Allaah, he was able, through working by himself, to serve the Ummah with a tremendous service in reviving their Deen.  Rather he was able to do what the [innovated] Islaamic political groups & parties could not do, with all of their resources & capabilities.

So this is a mercy from Allaah’s Mercies towards this Ummah, & it is upon us to show gratitude & gratefulness for the blessings & bounties (He has favored us with).”
