Friday Freaky Fatwa--Dead scary!

A Muslim asks a scholar

We have grown up being told that children should not go out to play at night as this is the time the Jinn and shayatan come out and that they will poses any children playing out side. Is there any basis to this?

And the scholar replies

Praise be to Allah.

Yes, a number of Hadith were narrated concerning this. For example, it is narrated from Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah that the Prophet said:

“When the wings of the night spread – keep your children in, for the devils come out at that time. Then when part of the night has passed, let them go. And close the doors and mention the name of Allah, for the shaytan does not open a closed door.

And tie up your waterskins and mention the name of Allah, and cover your vessels and mention the name of Allah, even if you only put something over them, and extinguish your lamps.”

There is fear for children at that hour, because the shayaten is usually present with them at that time, and the dhikr (remembering Allah) that would protect them is usually absent from children, and when the shayaten spread out they hang on to whatever they can hang on to. Hence there is fear for children at that time.

The reason why they spread out at night is that they are more able to move about at night than during the day, because darkness is more conducive to devil forces coming together than any other time.

The whole idea is connected to the shaytan, because he is the one who makes the mouse burn the house. End quote.
It’s not a mouse who burns down your house, it’s someone who is really pissed off at you or it was a preventable accident.  Don’t blame the mouse. And devils do not take your children, bad guys do that.  

And Allah knows best

A Muslim asks a scholar

If someone dies here in Sudan, after forty days the family, including the women and children, goes to visit the grave, and opens the grave. They have seeds of corn with them which they scatter over the deceased, and I think they throw stones on the deceased. Can women visit graves?
And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allah.

This is an innovation (bid’ah) for which there is no basis in sharia. Throwing seeds, perfume and clothes into the grave are all reprehensible actions for which there is no basis.

The grave should not be opened unless there is a good reason for doing so, such as the workers forgetting their tools like shovels, so it may be opened for that reason, or if one of them has dropped something important, so the grave may be opened to retrieve it. But opening it to scatter seeds or clothes and the like is not permitted.

Women should not visit graves, because the Prophet cursed women who visit graves. That was narrated from Abu Hurria, Ibn ‘Abbaas and Hassaan ibn Thaabit.
So it is not permissible for them to visit graves, but that is prescribed for men, because the Prophet said: “Visit the graves, for they remind you of the Hereafter.”

The reason why women are forbidden to visit graves is that they are a temptation (fitnah) and they have little patience.

And Allah knows best
Allah hardly ever gets mentioned in any of these fatwas. 
How many times does the Quran say not to forbid what Allah has not?  To bring forth your witnesses to prove what Allah forbid or allows.  Not to make crap up? 
Anyone who’s read the Quran knows how repetitive it is, it was, after all, written in poetic form.  But really important things are mentioned over and over.  There’s a terrible doom for those who make these scholars and the Hadith of dead men, partners to Allah.

A Muslim asks a scholar

We know that women are not allowed to visit graveyards but what do you say about a woman who passes alongside the wall of the graveyard when she is on her way somewhere and she can see the graves – should she recite the du’aa’ narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), or is she not allowed to, or what should she do?.
And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allah.

There is nothing wrong with her reciting the du’aa’ narrated from the Prophet (“Al-salaamu ‘alaykum ahl al-diyaar…”) and there is no sin on her, because she is not intending to visit the graves and she has not entered the graveyard, rather she is just passing by unintentionally

And Allah knows best
Seriously, you have to challenge these Hadith worshipping nut-jobs!  You’re on the internet; you can find the Quran in any language.  If you think the Quran is a great book, read it.

A Muslim asks a scholar

I have been wondering for some time now about the condition of the grave. I wanted to know if dead people actually visit or see or feel each other whilst in the grave.
And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allah.

Yes, it is proven that the souls of the believers meet and visit one another. There are some Hadith which indicate that, as well as some of the fatwas of the scholars on this matter.

It was narrated from Abu Huraira that the Prophet said: “When the believer is dying, the angels of mercy come to him with white silk and say: ‘Come out content and with the pleasure of Allah upon you to the mercy of Allah, fragrance and a Lord Who is not angry.’

So it comes out like the best fragrance of musk. They pass him from one to another until they bring him to the gate of heaven, where they say: ‘How good is this fragrance that has come to you from the earth!’ Then the souls of the believers come to him and they rejoice more over him than any one of you rejoices when his absent loved one comes to him. They ask him: ‘What happened to So and so, what happened to So and so?’ They say: ‘Let him be, for he was in the hardship of the world.
When he says, ‘Did he not come here?’ They say: ‘He was taken to the pit of Hell.’

When the kaafir is dying, the angers of punishment come to him with sackcloth and say: ‘Come out discontent and subject to divine wrath to the punishment of Allah. So it comes out like the foulest stench of a corpse. They bring him to the gates of the earth, where they say: ‘How foul is this stench!’ Then they bring him to the souls of the kuffaar.” Narrated by al-Nasaa’i,

As the Prophet said, “Souls are troops collected together and those who got along with each other in the heaven from whence they come would have an affinity with one another (in this world) and those amongst them who opposed each other in heaven would also be divergent in the world.”

Those that are punished are too preoccupied with the torment that they are facing to visit and meet one another, but the souls that are blessed are free and are not detained, so they meet one another, visit one another and talk about what they used to do in this world and what happened to the people of this world.

So each soul will be with its friends who did similar good deeds. The soul of our Prophet Muhammad is with the highest companions. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

4:69 “And whoso obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad), then they will be in the company of those on whom Allaah has bestowed His Grace, of the Prophets, the Siddeeqoon (those followers of the Prophets who were first and foremost to believe in them, like Abu Bakr As‑Siddeeq), the martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are!”

Actually it says this;

4:69  Whoso obeyeth Allah and the messenger, they are with those unto whom Allah hath shown favor, of the Prophets and the saints and the martyrs and the righteous. The best of company are they!
I don’t see Bakr’s name mentioned there, do you?  Did Allah forget or what?

There are Hadith which state that the dead visit one another and we are commanded to make their shrouds beautiful because of that, but none of these Hadith are reliable. For example, the Hadith of Abu Qataadah according to which the Prophet said: “Whoever takes the responsibility of preparing his brother for burial, let him make his shroud beautiful, for they visit one another in them.”

Its isnaad (chain of narrators) includes Salam ibn Ibraaheem al-Warraaq whom Ibn Mu’een and al-Dhahabi classed as a liar, as did others.
I know there are many of you who read this follow Hadith and follow scholars like these.  Do you think they hold Muhammad in the highest light or do they use him to make a mockery of the Quran and Islam? 
What do you think Muhammad would say if he read these fatwas and the horrible Hadith that they are based on?

Yes, I know the Quran says to follow the messenger how else would the 7th century desert Arabs know about one God?  There wasn’t a book back then, but, there is now.  It’s called the Quran.  The Quran was the message. 

And Allah knows best.

Next week will be the punishments when you are in the grave …or something like that

This is what happens when you anger Allah. 
Listen to the sound....
