"AL-Eti'daal" Weekly Article-Issue 38
06 Jumadul Ula 1435/08 March 2014

Once an argument took place between two persons. The case reached Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) who decided the case in favour of one of them. The one against whom was decided pleaded for permission to have the case heard by Umar (Radiallahu anhu). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) agreed to this.

The case was brought before Umar (Radiallahu anhu). After having heard the full case he went into his house, came forth with a sword and immediately struck down the person who brought the case to him and killed him. Then Sayyidina Umar (Radiallahu anhu) said: “As for him who does not abide by the decision of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) this is the decision by me.”

Consider what our reaction is to the decision of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) today? How much do we not try to use our skills and schemes to circumvent his decisions and sayings? How often do we not find fun being made of his Sunnah? How much do we not see his greatly emphasised commands being willfully opposed? If it was only one, then it is still not so bad. We do not only refer to things like: the beard, istinja, etc.

What about alcohol, interest on money -usury. Look what we think of Salaah, Fasting, Zakaat, Haj. See what we think of these and how we treat them. Remember this also: The man killed by Umar (Radiallahu anhu) professed the Kalimah,and was one of the people of the Qibla! And today, they want us to remain quiet against anyone just because he recites the Kalimah! In other words when someone turns his face to the Qibla he is allowed to say whatever he likes! Never!

"It is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards the east and the west, but righteous is he who believes in Allah and the last day, and the Angels and the Scripture and the Prophets and gives wealth for His love‟s sake, to the next of kin, and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and to those who ask and for setting free of slaves. And observes Salaah and gives Zakaat; And (righteous) is he who keep their agreements when they make them, and (he who is) patient in tribulation and adversity and at the times of stress. These are the ones who are sincere and those are the ones who are Allah-fearing.”
