“……………To Bura Maan Gaye”- A Poetry on Falsehood of Barelwis

January 14, 2014 Leave a comment

 

Umar Bhar Karte Rahe Shauk Se Shirk O Bidat,
Hamne Tawheed Ko Bataya To Bura Maan Gaye

 

Kaun Mardood Hai Gustakh e Rasool (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam),
Aa’ina Unn Ko Dikhaya To Bura Maan Gaye

 

Kunde Fatiha Shab e Barat aur Milad Nabi,
In Ko Bidat Bataya To Bura Maan Gaye

 

Maangte Rehte Hain Imdad Vo Sada Gairo Se,
Hamne Allah Ko Pukara To Bura Maan Gaye

 

Dete Rehte Hain Ye Gali Hame Har Sham O Shehar,
Haq Ka Paigam Sunaya To Bura Maan Gaye

 

Unchi Qabro Ko Gira Do, Hai Farman’e Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam),
Hamne Unko Jo Sunaya To Bura Maan Gaye

 

Dar-Badar Sar Ko Jhukana Nahi Shaan e Momin,
Hamne Ki Unn Ko Nasihat To Bura Maan Gaye

 

Shirk Hai Ye Taweez Ye Gande Ye Talsim,
Ye Farmaan E Nabi Unn Ko Sunaya to Bura Maan Gaye

Tera kya banega bande tu soch aakhirat ki- Urdu poetry

November 24, 2013 Leave a comment

Tera kya banega bande tu soch aakhirat ki

Is jahan me har taraf hain mushkilen
Har taraf hain aafaten hi aafaten
Kuch ghire aafat me, to kuch bimaar hain
Hai yahan duniya me koi bhi sukhi?
Ji nahi, hargiz nahi, sab hain dukhi,
Chal diye duniya se sab saaho gada
Koi bhi duniya me kab baaki raha.

Tera kya banega bande tu soch aakhirat ki

Bewafa duniya pe mat kar aitbar
Tu achaanak maut ka hoga shikaar
Maut aakar hi rahegi yaad rakh
Jaan jakar hi rahegi yaad rakh

Tera kya banega bande tu soch aakhirat ki

Gar jahan me sau baras tu jee bhi le,
Qabr me tanha qayamat tak rahe
Jab farishta maut ka cha jayega
Fir bacha koi na tujhko paayega

 Tera-kya-banega-bande-tu

Tera kya banega bande tu soch aakhirat ki

Maut aayi pahalwan bhi chal diye
Khoobsurat naujawan bhi chal diye
Dabdaba duniya me hi rah jaayega
Husn tera khaak me mil jaayega
Teri taakat, tera fann, ohdaa tera
Kuch na kaam aayega sarmaaya tera

Tera kya banega bande tu soch aakhirat ki

Jeetne duniya  Sikandar tha chala
Jab gaya duniya se khaali haath tha
Lehlahaate khet honge sab fanaa
Kushnumaa baagaat ko hai kab bakaa
Tu kushi ke phool lega kab talak
Tu yahan zinda rahega kab talak

Tera kya banega bande tu soch aakhirat ki

Qabr roza karti hai ye pukaar
Mujh me hain keede makaude beshumaar
Yaad rakh mai hun andheri kothri
Tujh ko hogi mujh me sun  wahshat badi
Mere andar tu akela aayega
Haan magar aamaal leta aayega

 Tera kya banega bande tu soch aakhirat ki

O Muslim youth, have you ever stopped and pondered- Muhammed Iqbal

June 10, 2013 Leave a comment

 

O Muslim youth, have you ever stopped and pondered
Of which sky was it, that you are now a fallen star?
You were nurtured in the loving care of such a people
Who trampled Crowns of Royalty under their feet.

 

 

They established exalted civilizations, Providing law (Shariah) and Leadership
Those deserted folk from Arabia, who cradled their camels.

 

 

Their pride was in their glorious deeds and their simplicity
Why would such a beautiful face feel the need for moles and art?

 

 

They lived their lives for Allah with such modest
With such pride, that the generous dare not give them alms.

 

 

Upon impulse, what can I say to you, Regarding who were those desert folk
Except , Conquerors, Emperors, Protectors and illumination of the world.

 

 

O Muslim youth, have you ever stopped and pondered
Of which sky was it, that you are now a fallen star?
You were nurtured in the loving care of such a people
Who trampled Crowns of Royalty under their feet.

 

 

If I wish, I could take those visions and put them into words
Perhaps that spectacle would be far better than all of your thoughts.

 

 

You cannot claim any relationship with your Forefathers
You merely speak while they acted, You stay rooted while they went out forth

 

 

Why weep over the loss of governance. It was just a World affair
In the sight of the World, there is no other remedy except from the Muslims

 

 

Alas! Those pearls of knowledge, the books by our forefathers
To see them made use of in Europe, ones heart become filled with grief.

 

 

O Muslim youth, have you ever stopped and pondered
Of which sky was it, that you are now a fallen star?
You were nurtured in the loving care of such a people
Who trampled Crowns of Royalty under their feet.

 

A call to travel- A Poem by Imam As-Shafi’ee

May 25, 2013 Leave a comment

There is no rest in residence for a person of culture
and intellect, so travel and leave where you’re residing!
Travel! You will find a replacement for what you have left.
And strive! The sweetness of life is in striving!

I’ve seen that water stagnates if still
becomes pure if it runs, but not if it doesn’t flow
If the lion doesn’t leave his den he cannot hunt,
and the arrow will not strike without leaving its bow

If the sun stood still in its heavenly course
then people, Arab and non-Arab, it would bore
Gold dust is as the earth where commonly found,
and in its land, oud  is but another wood in store

If one travels, he becomes sought out
If one travels , he is honored like gold.

Let the Days- A Poem by Imam As-Shafi’ee

May 17, 2013 Leave a comment

 

Let the days go as they please
And be optimistic when destiny decrees
Do not despair due to the events of nights past
For the events of this world were not meant to last

 

And be a man who, in the face of fear is strong
With loyalty and forbearance adorned
And if your mistakes are many amongst the folk 
And you wish to have for those mistakes a cloak

 

Then conceal them with generosity as hence
Every fault is covered as –  is said- by benevolence
And do not show weakness to an enemy
For dispersion of foes is a calamity

 

Generosity cannot be hoped from the miserly
For no water exists in the Fire for the thirsty
And your rizq will not decrease though late it may arrive
And it will not increase though one may slave and strive

 

No sadness lasts forever, nor any felicity
Nor any state of poverty or one of luxury
If you are the owner of a heart that is content
Then you and the owner of the world are equivalent

 

And for him upon whose horizon death descends,
No earth can offer him protection, nor any sky defend
The earth of Allah is certainly vast and infinite
But if decree descends, then all the sky constricts

 

Let the days betray every once in a while
For there is no medicine that will protect from death

[Translation by Ammar Al Shukry]

A Hundred Line Poem Recounting the Life of the Most Noble of all Creation by ‘Alee ibn ‘Alee ibn Muhammad ibn Abil-‘Izz al-Hanafee

April 25, 2013 Leave a comment

 

A poem composed by ibn Abil-‘Izz al-Hanafee, author of Sharh al-‘Aqeedah at-Tahaawiyyah. The poem presents a summarized timeline of important events which occurred throughout the lifetime of the Messenger of Allaah, Muhammad [sallallahu alaihi wasallam]

Translated by Aboo Shaybah

[1] All praise is for Allaah, The Eternal, The Maker;
followed by His salaah upon the chosen one.

 

[2] Here is the Messenger’s biography
in poem form with succinct sections.

 

[3] His birth was on the tenth of the distinguished month,
Rabee‘ al-Awwal, in the year of the elephant.

 

[4] However, the common view is that it was the twelfth,
on a Monday at the break of dawn,

 

[5] corresponding to the twentieth of April.
Prior to that, his father passed away.

 

[6] Two years later he was weaned
and brought back safe and sound by his wetnurse,

 

[7] Haleemah, to his mother. She then returned
with him to her own family as she had desired.

 

[8] Two months later his belly was cleaved open,
though some say it was when he was four years old.

 

[9] At six years and one month, while returning,
his mother passed away at al-Abwaa’.

 

[10] And his paternal grandfather, ‘Abdul-Muttalib,
passed away while he was eight, no lie.

 

[11] Then his paternal uncle, Aboo Taalib, took on
his guardianship, and later to ash-Shaam he travelled.

 

[12] That was while he was twelve years old
and the well-known incident with Baheeraa took place.

 

[13] The best of mankind again travelled to ash-Shaam
at the age of twenty five – remember it –

 

[14] as a trader for our mother, Khadeejah,
and he returned that year after profitable trade, happy.

 

[15] In that year was his marriage to her,
and he later consummated his marriage with her.

 

[16] All his children were from her except Ibraaheem.
The first to earn that distinction was al-Qaasim.

 

[17] Then came Zaynab, Ruqayyah, Faatimah,
and Umm Kulthoom, who was the last of the girls;

 

[18] and At-Taahir, At-Tayyib, ‘Abdullaah;
but some say each name belonged to a separate beautiful child.

 

[19] All of them tasted death during his lifetime,
except Faatimah who died half-a-year after him.

 

[20] At thirty five he participated
in rebuilding the House of Allaah after its dilapidation.

 

[21] They appointed him to arbitrate and accepted his solution
for putting the Black Stone into place.

 

[22] At the age of forty he was sent as a Messenger;
on a Monday with certainty – so convey it –

 

[23] during Ramadaan or Rabee’ al-Awwal,
and Soorah “Iqra’ ” was the first of the revelation.

 

[24] Then wudoo’ and salaah he was taught
by Jibreel, as two complete units of prayer.

 

[25] Then, after the passing of twenty full days,
enormous, terrifying stars pelted the Jinn.

 

[26] Then, in the fourth year, he called
openly to Islaam as commanded.

 

[27] Four women along with twelve
men among the Companions all migrated

 

[28] to the lands of Habashah in the fifth year.
The same year, they returned, but went back without blame.

 

[29] They were eighty three men
accompanied by a group completing their total number;

 

[30] and they were eighteen women. Later on,
in the sixth year, Hamzah – al-Asad – accepted Islaam.

 

[31] Nine years after his Messengership
came the death of Aboo Taalib, his guardian;

 

[32] followed by Khadeejah who passed away
after three days had elapsed.

 

[33] After fifty and a quarter years, Islaam was embraced
by the Jinn of Naseebeen, who then departed – let it be known.

 

[34] Thereafter, he married Sawdah
in Ramadaan; followed by

 

[35] his marriage to the daughter of as-Siddeeq in Shawwaal.
At the age of fifty one

 

[36] he was taken by night, and the salawaat were obligated;
five with the reward of fifty, as authentically preserved.

 

[37] The first bay‘ah was with twelve
of the people from Taybah, as has been mentioned.

 

[38] At the age of fifty two came
seventy in the Hajj season – and this is confirmed –

 

[39] from Taybah. They pledged allegiance, and he later left
Makkah on a Monday in the month Safar.

 

[40] Thus, the one contented arrived in Taybah, for certain,
having reached the age of fifty three

 

[41] on a Monday. He remained there
for ten full years as we shall recount.

 

[42] In the first year, salaah of a resident was made complete,
this was after he prayed Jumu‘ah – listen to my words.

 

[43] He then constructed a masjid at Qubaa’,
as well as the masjid in the noble city, al-Madeenah.

 

[44] Then, around it, he built his dwellings.
Later this year arrived

 

[45] less than half of those who had travelled
to the lands of Habashah when they migrated.

 

[46] In the same year, the noblest of all elite established ties of brotherhood
between the Muhaajireen and Ansaar.

 

[47] He then consummated marriage with the daughter of his best Companion,
and legislated the athaan, so follow his example.

 

[48] The battle of al-Abwaa’ took place afterwards, in Safar.
Subsequently, in the second year, combat spread

 

[49] to Buwaat and then Badr. The obligation
of redirecting the Qiblah came in the middle of Rajab

 

[50] following Thil-‘Ushayr, o my brothers.
Fasting for a month was obligated in Sha‘baan,

 

[51] and the major clash which was at Badr
happened during fasting, on the seventeenth of the month.

 

[52] Zakaah al-Fitr was obligated in it
following Badr by ten nights.

 

[53] There is difference regarding Zakaah al-Maal – you must realize this.
The daughter of the righteous Prophet passed away,

 

[54] Ruqayyah, prior to the army’s return;
she was the wife of ‘Uthmaan. The marriage of the chaste

 

[55] Faatimah to the esteemed ‘Alee.
And al-‘Abbaas accepted Islaam after being taken captive.

 

[56] And as for Qaynuqaa‘, battle with them ensued afterwards.
And he sacrificed on the ‘Eed of slaughter.

 

[57] And the battle of as-Saweeq, then Qarqarah.
And combat in the third year spread further

 

[58] to Ghatafaan and Banee Sulaym.
Umm Kulthoom, daughter of the noble esteemed,

 

[59] was married to ‘Uthmaan and he earned this distinction.
And the Prophet later married Hafsah,

 

[60] and Zaynab also; then headed to Uhud for battle
– in the month of Shawwaal – and Hamraa’ al-Asad.

 

[61] Intoxicants were prohibited undoubtedly – so listen –
and that year his grandson, al-Hasan, was born.

 

[62] In the fourth year, battle reached
Banee an-Nadeer in Rabee‘ al-Awwal.

 

[63] Then followed the death of Zaynab, the aforementioned,
and afterwards, marriage to Umm Salamah,

 

[64] and the daughter of Jahsh. Then, to Badr as appointed
followed by al-Ahzaab – so listen and keep count –

 

[65] then Banee Quraythah, though regarding these two
there is difference. And at Thaat ar-Riqaa‘ he taught

 

[66] how to pray Salaah al-Khawf; and prayer was shortened, as reported.
and the verses about hijaab and tayammum.

 

[67] Some said and his stoning of the two Jews,
and the birth of his lovely grandson, al-Husayn.

 

[68] In the fifth year – listen and trust me – was
the slander during the battle of Banee al-Mustaliq.

 

[69] Doomah al-Jandal happened before that. And also
he wed the daughter of al-Haarith later on, and consummated.

 

[70] His marriage to Rayhaanah was in the fifth.
Then Banee Lihyaan was at the beginning of the sixth year.

 

[71] After that, his istisqaa’ prayer, and Thoo Qarad,
and he was obstructed from performing ‘Umrah as he wished.

 

[72] Bay‘ah ar-Ridwaan came first, and he consummated
that year his marriage with Rayhaanah, as clarified.

 

[73] And Hajj was obligated, though with difference – so take heed –
and the conquest of Khaybar was in the seventh year.

 

[74] The meat of domestic donkeys was prohibited
that year, as well as the corrupt Mut‘ah form of marriage.

 

[75] He later married Umm Habeebah
and her mahr on his behalf an-Najaashee paid.

 

[76] A lamb was poisoned and offered as a gift,
and he later chose for himself the pure Safiyyah.

 

[77] She came, as well as all the remaining migrants.
And marriage to Maymoonah was the last.

 

[78] Prior to that was the Islaam of Aboo Hurayrah,
and after was the famous ‘Umrah al-Qadaa’.

 

[79] And the envoys in the sanctified month of Muharram
he sent them to the kings – so know this.

 

[80] Presented as a gift was Maariyah al-Qibtiyyah
that year. Then in the eigth year was a sariyyah

 

[81] which headed to Mu’tah. And during fasting
the conquest of al-Balad al-Haraam took place.

 

[82] After it, they relate what happened during
the day at Hunayn, and then the day at at-Taa’if.

 

[83] Later, in Thul-Qa‘dah, he performed ‘Umrah
from al-Ji‘irraanah, and he was settled.

 

[84] His daughter, Zaynab, passed away and then
Ibraaheem was born in it, surely.

 

[85] And turn was given to ‘Aa’ishah by
Sawdah for as long as she remained alive.

 

[86] The minbar was made and placed conspicuously,
and ‘Attaab led the people in Hajj.

 

[87] Then expedition to Tabook was in the ninth year
and he demolished Masjid ad-Diraar, removing its harm.

 

[88] Aboo Bakr led the people in Hajj, and there
‘Alee recited “Baraa’ah” and decisively declared

 

[89] that no mushrik would again perform Hajj, and none
unclothed would make Tawaaf – they both carried out as instructed.

 

[90] Delegations came in plenty, one after the next,
and he swore he would not go to his womenfolk for a month.

 

[91] He announced the death of an-Najaashee and prayed
upon him from Taybah, earning him great virtue.

 

[92] Ibraaheem passed away in the final year
and al-Bajalee accepted Islaam, and his name was Jareer.

 

[93] He performed the Farewell Hajj as a Qaarin
and he stopped on a Friday during it in security.

 

[94] And revealed that day was a glad tiding for you:
This day I have perfected for you your religion.

 

[95] Rayhaanah’s death was after his return,
and the nine lived on after him.

 

[96] And on a Monday he finished – for certain –
having completed sixty three.

 

[97] He was laid to rest in the dwelling of the daughter of as-Siddeeq
at the location of his death, precisely determined.

 

[98] The duration of his illness was two-fifths of a month,
but some say it was a third and a fifth – know this.

 

[99] This concludes the hundred line poem
recounting the life of the most noble of all creation.

 

[100] May Allaah, my Lord, send salaah upon him, and upon
his Companions, his family, and those who follow. 

 

Prohibition of Music from the Sunnah by Shaykh al-Albaanee (Rahimahullah)

February 15, 2013 Leave a comment

 

A sincere advice to those who allow music and its instruments -in the name of Islaam.

1. The first of these is from the best of all the past and present scholars, the Prophet (ȘallaAllaahu ‘alayhi wasallam). As narrated by Aboo Umaamah al-Baahilee (radhiyallaahu ‘anhu):

“Do not indulge in selling the qaynaat [female servants specialized for singing to their masters], and do not buy them, and do not teach them to sing, and there is no good in trading in them, and their worth is haraam. And in the likes of this, was revealed this verse : ‘And of mankind is he who purchases lahhwal-hadeeth [idle talks] to mislead (men) from the Path of Allâh without knowledge.’ to the end of the verse.”

[Șaheeha: 2922, Șaheeh Sunan at-Tirmidhee, Imaam Ahmad in al-Musnad: 22181 without the verse]

I (Shaikh al-Albaanee) think that at this point you have seen clearly that this verse is an explicit proof against music. So let those who claim that there is no prohibition of it in the Qur’aan take heed.

 

 

2. Aboo Maalik al-Ash’aree (radhiyallaahu ‘anhu) mentions that The Messenger of Allaah (Șallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Indeed, there will be in my Ummah such people who will make permissible for themselves fornication, silk, wine and musical instruments….”

[Narrated by Imaam al-Bukhaari in his Saheeh, Aboo Daawood in his Sunan]

Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalaani said:

‘And in this hadeeth is a severe warning for the one who deceives by [and] makes permissible that which is impermissible by changing its name..’

[Fath-ul Baaree.]

Imaam Al-Albaanee said : ‘In his statement : make permissible’ it is a clear proof that the four things mentioned are not halaal (permissible) in the legislation: and amongst them is : musical instruments.’

 

 

3. Aboo Maalik al-Ash’aree (radhiyallaahu ‘anhu) said: The Messenger of Allaah
(Șallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Indeed a people from among my nation will consume wine; and will call it by other than its name [they will change the name of it], while singers and musical instruments are played over their heads: Allah will cause the earth to swallow them and change them into monkeys and swines.”

[Narrated by Ibn Maajah, and Ibnul Qayyim said it is authentic in two different places in his book Ighaathatul-luhfaan : 1/347 & 361. And it is in Șaheeh at-Targheeb wa tarheeb : 2378.]

 

 

4. Anas ibn Maalik (radhiyallaahu ‘anhu) said that The Prophet (Șallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Two voices are cursed in this world and the hereafter; Music at the time of happiness and wailing at the time of calamity.”

[Narrated by Al-Bazzaar in his Musnad: 1/377, Kashful astaar-795, and Adh-Dhiyaa al Maqdisee in al- Ahadeeth al-Mukhtaara: 6/188/2200&2201. Al-Bazzaar said : We don’t know it from Anas except from this chain.’ I say: ‘Its chain is good, rather it is authentic with what follows: And it has been followed by the narration of ‘Isa ibn Tamhan from Anas as narrated by Ibn Simaak. So the hadeeth is authentic, and all Perfect praise is for Allaah. And it is emphasized in its strength of Authenticity by the following hadeeth [hadeeth no.5] ]

 

 

 

5. From Jaabir ibn ‘Abdullah from ‘Abdurrahman ibn ‘Awf (radhiyallaahu ‘anhum) who said: ‘The Prophet (Șallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Surely I do not prohibit crying ; but verily I have prohibited two asinine and evil voices: a voice at the time of happiness; play, leisure and music, and voices at the time of a calamity; slapping of the faces, and tearing of clothes and wailing.”

[Sunan at-Tirmidhee and he said : It is a good hadeeth. Al-Haakim : 4/40, Al-Bayhaqee: 4/69]

 

Imaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said :

‘This hadeeth is from the best of what is proof on the impermissibility of singing, as in the wording of the one narrated by Jaabir : ‘voice at the time of happiness: play, vain talk and the instruments of shaytaan.’ Thus he prohibited the sounds which are carried out at the times of enjoyment just as he prohibited the sounds made at the time of a calamity, and the sounds made at the time of joy are the sounds of music.’

[Al-Istiqaama : 1/292-293]

 

 

6. ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Abbaas (radhiyallaahu ‘anhumaa) said: ‘The Messenger of Allaah (Șallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Allaah has prohibited on me – or prohibited- alcohol, and gambling, and the drum, and every intoxicant is haraam.”

This has been narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas Qays ibn Habtaar, and it has been narrated from him [Qays] in two routes:
The first one: From ‘Alee ibn Badheema who said Qays ibn Habtaar narrated to me… [Aboo Daawood : 3696, al-Bayhaqee: 10/221, Musnad Imaam Ahmad : 1/274]
The other one: From ‘Abdulkareem ibn al-Jazariyy from Qays ibn Habtaar with the wording:

“Indeed Allaah has prohibited on you : alcohol, and gambling, and the drum.’ And then he said : ‘and every intoxicant is haraam.”

[Al-Bayhaqee: 10/213-221, Musnad Imaam Ahmad: 1/289. And this chain is authentic. And also shaykh Ahmad Shaakir authenticated it in his notes on the Musnad of Imaam Ahmad in two different places: 4/158 & 218.]

 

 

7. ‘Imraan ibn Husayn (radhiyallaahu ‘anhu) narrates that The Messenger of Allaah (Șallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“In this Ummah there will be [people who will be] sunk into the earth, deformed, and upon whom stones will rain from the skies.” It was said: ‘And when will that be?’ He replied: “When singing girls and instruments of music will appear (become prevalent), and alcohol will be drunk.”

[ Narrated by Tirmidhee in the book of Fitan: 2213 , Ibn Abi ad Dunya in Dhamm al-Malaahi.]

 

8. And it has come in one route as mursal, and in another route as connected – and this is more authentic of the two- from Abul-‘Abbaas al-Hamdaani from ‘Ammaara ibn Raashid, from al-Ghaazee ibn Rab’eea , raised to the Messenger of Allaah (Șallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) :

“There will be a people who will be deformed -into monkeys and swines- while they are reclining on their couches. Because of their consuming of alcohol and their using of the lute [instruments] and singing girls.”

[In his route, Ibn Asaakir in Taarikh al-Dimashq : 12/582 , Ibn Abi ad Dunya in Dhamm al-Malaahi,]

 

 

9. And it is strengthened more by the corroborating narrations regarding the fitan [trials to appear at the end of times] , and from these is the hadeeth :

“A group among this Nation will spend a night in drinking and eating, and entertainment and play; and by the time morning reaches them they will be turned into swine and monkeys, and they will be ceased by a rain of stones, and splitting of the earth to swallow them.

 

Thus the people will say : ‘Last night the clan of so-and-so was swallowed by the earth,’ and they will also say: ‘In the night the house of so-and-so individually was swallowed into the earth.’ And indeed stones from the skies will descend upon them -on a certain tribe and those around them- just as they descended on the people of Loot ;

 

And a [violent]dry wind which destroyed the people of ‘Aad will be sent to a tribe and those around them : [All of this] because of their drinking of alcohol, and wearing of silk [by men], and entertaining female singers, and consuming of ribaa [usury], and cutting of the ties of kinship.”

[Al-Haakim: 4/515, Al-Bayhaqee in Shu’b al-Eeman: 5/16, Ahmad: 5/329, Al-Asbahaanee in At-Targheeb: 1/498-499, Abu Nu’aym in al-Hilyah: 6/295. It was authenticated by Al-Haakim and Ad-Dhahabee agreed with him, although it has something to look into; check Șaheeha: 1604. ]

 

 

[Imaam Al-Albaanee continues to say] : ‘Yes, and at this point [this narration] becomes authentic without any doubt –due to these corroborating evidences.’

 

Upto where he said:

10. ‘And there is another narration like this from Anas (radhiyallaahu anhu) who said: ‘The Messenger of Allaah (Șallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

When my nation make permissible six things, then for them is destruction :
‘When cursing each other [increases] becomes apparent between them, and drinking of intoxicants, and wearing of silk [by men], and employment of singers, and when the men resort to be sufficed by men, and the women by women [i.e. when they take on homosexuality.”

[At-Tabaraanee in Mu’jam al-Waseet (1/59/1060 by my enumeration), and al-Bayhaqee in Shu’b: 5/377- 378 through two routes from him of which Bayhaqee used to strengthen [the authenticity] by them.]
