      Sidi I think we have many Muslim men around the world like Malcolm X. Unfortunately we also have too many people with ego’s and opinions which drowns them from rising up to achieve landmarks that brother Malcolm achieved. This is the very reason which caused the assassination of brother Malcolm in the end.

      For people to follow a man so devotionally, people will be accused of blind following and putting this man before the Prophet (saw) as is the accusation thrown at many of the leading scholars and their followers today.

      Unfortuantely this kind of mentality will continue even upon the arrival of Imam Mahdi as not every single muslim will recognise him or his rank. Only a small number/percentage will pledge allegiance to the great Imam upon his arrival. Thats scary considering there are over 1 billion muslims in the world today.

      Welcome to my world…this is why Malcolm X was my favorite movie of all time…

      Stay tuned Amir, we’ll be posting the audio from our Life and Times of Malcolm X class real soon, and our teacher was able to witness much of this stuff firsthand

      brother abdullah…why did u use the term IMAM mahdi…why not just al-mahdi…its this lack of basic knowledge that scholars speak off when individuals join groups or hizbs. blind following of a man who is not following the understanding of ahl al sunnah and creates his own formula to create an islamic state is dangerous and never proven successful in any era.

      btw im not talking about our shaheed insha allah brother malcolm, but in general those who call to hizbiya

      Unfortunately, b/c of the Salafi/Wahabi dawah today, people will never practice “taqleed” like this. Everyone will question where is the dalil for this & that, and the arguments will never stop. May Allah help us.

      Congratulation Br. Chuah (which translated to mouse in urdu)!

      While you’re at it refer to Shaykh Rabee al-Madkhali as Rabee. And announce that whoever calls anyone a shaykh; whether its Shaykh Bin Baz or the old man that comes to the masjid is a deviant and is doomed to hell until you pardon him. Happy? That IS what you wanted…right?

      You just proved that 99.999999999999999999% of the Muslim Ummah is doomed to hell. Everyone, let’s give Br. Mouse a pat on the back!

      @ Salam,
      Br. Chuah is obviously confused but we can’t blame everything on the followers of Muhammad ibn ‘Abdul Wahhaab. I knew a couple of deobandi/tableeghi scholars who would have constructive debates on issues such as taqlid (not about following a madhab but about to what extent you can use opinions outside their madhab), aqeedah (specifically the siffat of allah), and muhammad ibn ‘abdul wahhaab (whether he was reviver of the deen or someone of fasaad).

    8. Nihal Khan January 24th, 2009 at 7:28 pm

      @Chuah

      Don’t forget to declare Umar ibn al-Khattab (R) a deviant while you’re at it. He ordered for a person’s hand not to be cut off if they were caught stealing. and he established Taraweeh as 20 raka’ats :O.

      Also, sift through Bukhari and all the other books of hadith on your own and find all the hadith about the other Companions who “disobeyed” RasulUllah (SAW) in matters of Deen.

      Allahumma Salli wa Sallim ‘Alaa Muhammad (SAW) wa Abu Bakr wa ‘Umar wa ‘Uthmaan wa ‘Ali wa Kullu Khulafaa’ ar-Rashideen ba’adihim )Radiyallahu ‘Anhum ‘Ajma’ieen). Ameen

      (Oh Allah! Send your salawat and peace upon Muhammad (SAW), Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthmaan, ‘Ali and all the rightly guided caliphs after them. (May Allah be please with them all). Ameen

      as salamu aleykum brother nihal

      akhi i have no idea what you are trying to say…seems like anger mixed with some meaningless rambling.

      please clarify what your are trying to say…and no need to be disrespectful…i neither disrespected the person i responded to, nor did i degrade the sahaba radiya allahu anhum

    10. Nihal Khan January 25th, 2009 at 1:09 am

      ….You insinuated in your comment that it’s a bida’ah to say Imam Mahdi and we should refer to him as only al-Mahdi.

      When we say Imam, its a sign of respect. Just as we don’t call our parents and elders by their first name.

      My advice to you is to open to Qur’aan and READ! Read and understand the arabic and tafseer. Leave aside troid, salafipublications, zaytuna, almaghrib, sunnipath and just read the quraan for the next month. see how you feel.

      “Ask those who know.” – Surah Nahl
      “Hold to the Rope of Allah and don’t differ” – Surah Aal-e-‘Imraan

      @ Chuah

      “why did u use the term IMAM mahdi…why not just al-mahdi…its this lack of basic knowledge that scholars speak off when individuals join groups or hizbs.”

      Because scholars far knowledgable than me have referred to him as Imam Mahdi. May be there is a difference of opinion on this just as with everything else in the deen. I just prefer NOT TO shove the opinions that I may adhere to down everybody else’s throat. I’ve learnt that much as basic knowledge. I didn’t realise you knew me so well from the veil of the internet as to refer to me as somebody part of a group. I ain’t part of no group brother/sister – I’m just an individual trying to live my life, practice my deen and refrain from sin, which I will be honest is the hardest thing ever.

      “blind following of a man who is not following the understanding of ahl al sunnah and creates his own formula to create an islamic state is dangerous and never proven successful in any era.”

      I refer you to Usman Dan Fodio (Africa), Shah Jalal (Bangladesh), as two examples – these people did not necessarily create their own state as did not Malcolm X, however look at the legacy left behind. I also refer you to `Umar ibn Abd al-Aziz. People blind followed him so much to the point there was nobody to give Zakat to. As history proves, there will always be somebody with an ego – which eventually led to the assassination of this rightly guided Caliph, rahimahullah.

      as salamu aleykum

      @ nihal- may allah forgive you akhi…you dont even know me and you assume i dont read quran

      يا أيها الذين آمنوا اجتنبوا كثيرا من الظن إن بعض الظن إثم–translate this akhi

      @ brother abdullah

      accept my apology akhi…i re-read my post and i think to use ( lack of knowledge) is not the correct choice of words…i should say its an error to use imam mahdi, not from the perspective of being disrespectful but becuase the shia are ones who spread this term into ahl al sunna…those that commonly refer ali to an imam..but not abu baker or omar radiya allahu anhum all.

      the term mahdi is not a name anyway..its a kunya…and you can check this post by islamqa..7 ahadeeth from rasool allah sala alahu aleyhi wasalam and the term imam wasnt used…who are those scholars that use imam mahdi

      http://islamqa.com/en/ref/1252/mahdi

      although all this is outside the subject of this post..i was talkin about giving bay’ah to leaders who are outside the circle of ahl al sunnah…or who act in-different to the understanding of the scholars of ahl al sunnah

    13. Nihal Khan January 25th, 2009 at 8:46 pm

      Yea…go and translate this verse Shaykh Sahib:

      فَاسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

      Don’t quote Qur’aan ayaat if you don’t know their context…

      Any why the heck is your name “Chuah?”

    14. Nihal Khan January 25th, 2009 at 8:47 pm

      And while you’re at “enjoining the good and forbidding the evil” it please name all the scholars of ahlus sunnah wal jamah and all those who don’t belong.

    15. chuah January 25th, 2009 at 11:04 pm

      @ nihal

      subhan allah…the ayat i mentioned fits you directly…all you did in your previous posts is assume things not there…i never said using imam is a bid3a…i never mentioned arguments of al-maghrib and zaytuna….

      bro i think you are just a sour dude who is only harsh with the believers and a sellout softy with the non believers…i suggest you abide by the advices you giving and stop indulging in arguments far above your intellectual capacity.

    16. Nihal Khan January 26th, 2009 at 1:53 pm

      Hah! You just contradicted yourself.

      You stated a verse from the Qur’aan about not suspecting people and you say that I’m a sell out to the disbelievers…..How old are you, 12? Please go finish middle school first.

      You still didn’t give me the names of the “scholars of ahlus sunnah.” I need to who they are in order to tell if I’m “on the dawah” akh.
