"AL-Eti'daal" Weekly Article-Issue 40
27 Jumadul Ula 1435/29 March 2014

Sayyidina Nu'man bin Basheer (Radiallahu anhu) said that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:

“The lawful things are clear and the unlawful things are clear. Between them lie the doubtful things, which many people do not know. Whosoever withholds himself from the doubtful things, keeps his deen and honour clean and safe (from blemish) and whosoever partakes of doubtful things, will fall into the unlawful. Like the herdsmen who grazes his animals in the vicinity of (the) prohibited territory. Behold there is such a prohibited area for all things. Beware, the prohibited territory fixed by Allah consists of those things He had made unlawful.”

“Beware that in the body lies one such organ, that if this organ is sound, the whole body is sound, and if this organ is unsound the whole body is unsound. Verily that organ is the heart.” (Mishkat, Muslim, Bukhari)

Sayyidina Ibn Abbas (Radiallahu anhu) says that Rasulullab (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Things are of three kinds. One kind is that whose truth is clearly evident. Follow it. Another is that whose falsehood is clearly evident, abstain from it. And yet another is that in which is a difference of opinion (where its truth or falsehood is not clearly evident); entrust it to Allah.”

“Entrust it to Allah” in this context means not to pass any verdict about it, truth or falsehood without any sound supporting shari‟ evidence. It is of the utmost necessity to bear this in mind that Islam is such a religion based on Revealed Texts. For every single one of its tenets there must be a text (from Quran or Hadeeth). Allah and His Rasul (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) had not left any matter of the deen without a decision — categorically about its essentials. Thus there is no way of avoiding the following of Rasulullah (Sallailahu Alayhi Wasailam‟s) statements and actions and alsc the statements of the Sahabah (Radiallahuanhum), the Tab'ien and the Ai'mniah-e-Mujtahideen. For this reason the seeking of knowledge is compulsory on every single Muslim because one can never be aware of the commandments of deen without knowledge. So it is necessary for every Muslim to acquaint himself with the necessities of deen. If this is not possible, then one should inquire from some qualified Alim.
