Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

1) There are two opinions in the Hanafi Madhab regarding this matter:

a) The first opinion is mentioned by Hakim al-Shahid (Rahmatullah Alayhi) in his Muntaqa that Imam Abu Hanfia (Rahmatullah Alayhi) said, "There is no excuse for anyone to be ignorant of his Creator because of what he sees of the creation of the heavens and earth and his own self." He also said, "If Allah Ta'ala had not sent a messenger, it would still have been obligatory for created beings to recognize Him through their intellect and reason ('aql)." Therefore, at a minimum, one who never received the message of Islam must still adopt monotheism through their reason. If this was done, then it is believed that the person will be saved from the punishment.

b) In the second opinion, the Imams of Bukhara (the latter Hanafis) had the view that belief does not become obligatory, nor does disbelief become prohibited until Allah Ta'ala has sent a prophet. They say that none of the rulings of Allah can be known except through the coming of a prophet. This is how they interpret the verse of the Holy Quran:

"And We will not punish until We send a prophet." (17:15)

Others have interpreted the "punishment" in this verse as a punishment in this world, not the Hereafter.

The first opinion mentioned is the stronger one in the Hanafi Madhab. We say that some rulings can be known without the aid of a prophet, such as the existence of Allah and His Oneness.

We must remember that Allah Ta'ala is the Most Just and All-Knowing. He will rule with fairness on the Day of Judgment. These matters should be left up to Him without us pondering over them excessively.

(Al-Fiqh al-Akbar Explained, P. 205-211, White Thread Press)
(Ma'ariful Quran, Vol. 5 P. 442-445, Darul Kitab)

2) The difference between a Muslim who committed many sins and a kaafir who committed good actions in this life is that the Muslim still had Imaan in his heart, even if it was the weight of a mustard seed. The Muslim still had belief in the Oneness of Allah Ta'ala and Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) as the final messenger. A kaafir has a belief involving shirk (associating partners with Allah Ta'ala) and a belief that Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was not the final messenger. A Hadith mentions:

It is related from Anas (RadiyAllahu Anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Whoever says 'There is no god but Allah' and has a barley-corn's weight of good in his heart will come out of the Fire. Whoever says 'There is no god but Allah' and has a wheat-grain's weight of good in his heart will come out of the Fire. Whoever says 'There is no god but Allah' and has an atom's weight of good in his heart will come out of the Fire." (Sahih al-Bukhari)

This Hadith clearly shows that even a minimal amount of Imaan in one's heart will eventually save one from the fire of Hell. However, a Muslim who has committed many sins and has not repented will have to serve time in Hell until he is purified of his sins. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) will be interceding on the Ummah's behalf until the final person of the Ummah with Imaan is removed from the fire.

If anyone has a belief which associates partners with Allah Ta'ala, this is the worst possible sin which is unforgivable. Allah Ta'ala says in the Holy Quran:

"Surely Allah does not forgive the sin of ascribing partners to Him and He may forgive any sin short of that for whomsoever He wills." (4:116)

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Obedience to the commands of Allah takes one closer to Allah. Whatever Allah has ordained should be practiced and whatever has been prohibited should be abstained from. One would achieve this by adhering to the noble Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wassalam). Together with fulfilling the Faraaid (acts of compulsion), one should also practice upon the Nawaafil (optional acts). These Nawaafil play a significant role in taking one closer to Almighty Allah. Recitation of the Quraan e Kareem is also an important tool in gaining the proximity and closeness of Allah.

Q: 112 – Title: wish to become a Muslim, but I live in an area where the closest mosque is at least 60 miles away and I have no transportation.

Question

I wish to become a Muslim, but I live in an area where the closest mosque is at least 60 miles away and I have no transportation. I also live in a area with a very low Muslim population. I've looked around the internet on how to learn the prayers, but none seem to help me out very much. I'm also concerned about Jumu'ah.  Since I can't go to mosque on friday [or any day for that matter] how should I proceed and how should I go about learning the prayers?

Salamun ‘Ala Man Ittaba’ al-Huda
(May peace be upon those who follow the straight path).

We are pleased to hear about your desire in accepting Islam. May Allah accept you for true religion of Islam, Ameen.

We would first like to state that to accept Islam there is no official initiation or ceremony one has to go through. One simply has to utter the words of shahada (testimony) and believe in them from his heart. The words of shahada are:

(Arabic) ???? ?? ?? ??? ???? ????? ?? ???? ???? ??????

Ash-Hadu An La Illahi Ilillah Wa Ash-Hadu Ana Muhammadan Abduhu Wa Rasulluhu (Transliteration)

I bear testimony that there is no God but Allah and I bear testimony that Muhammad is his slave and messenger. (Translation)

It should also be known that there are five pillars of Islam.

?? ??? ??? ??? ???? ????? ???  : ??? ???? ???? ??? ???? ???? ? ??? ( ??? ??????? ??? ??? ????? ?? ?? ??? ??? ???? ??? ????? ???? ???? ????? ?????? ?????? ?????? ????? ???? ????? ) – ???? ??????? (Arabic)

Ibn ‘Umar (Radiyallahu 'Anhu) narrates that the Prophet of Allah (Sallalahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) said, “The foundation of Islam is upon five pillars; bearing testimony that there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah, establishment of Prayers (Salat), Giving alms (Zakat), Pilgrimage (Hajj), Fasting in the month of Ramadan.) (Translation)

It is also incumbent upon a Muslim to believe in all the necessary doctrines of Islam such as:

  • Qur’an is the book of Allah
  • The finality of Prophethood upon Muhammad (Sallalahu 'Alayhi Wasallam)
  • Life after death
  • Existence of Angels
  • Day of Judgment
  • Existence of Heaven and Hell
  • Unlawfulness of wine and pork

We advice you to contact an Islamic Scholar (Alim) close to you locality or in the surrounding areas and ask him to teach you about the fundamentals of Islam. It is important to learn Islam from authentic scholars. For the time being, you may learn the method of prayers from books that are easily available for purchase such as ‘Talim al-Haq’. It can be purchased from the following website:

http://www.madania.org/english/index.php

You may also visit our website for other information on Islam at http://www.al-inaam.com/.

May Allah Ta’ala make it easy for you and assist you in having the right understanding of Islam, Ameen.

Even though this incident is mentioned in the Sikh books, it is not considered as a proof. Their books are not proof for us and nor is it accepted for historical aspects. One should not believe in the incident.

Q: 111 – Title: If a person carries out the fundaentals of islam, lives his life according to the shariah and practices the sunans of the prophet s.a.w.,however his dressing is like the non muslims...

Question

If a person carries out the fundaentals of islam, lives his life according to the shariah and practices the sunans of the prophet s.a.w.,however his dressing is like the non muslims i.e.top and trousers then would he stil be raised amongst those people whom he imitated,meaing the jews and the christians because of his clothing?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Allah Ta'ala states:

?????? ????? ?????? ??? ??????? ??????? ???????? ???????? ?????? ????? ??????? ??????? ??????????? ????????? ???????? ??????? ????????

"Verily, in the Messenger of Allah is the most beautiful example to follow for those of you who desire Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah excessively."

The Prophet also advised and ordered the Muslims to differ from the disbelievers in their habits and manners. He himself used to be very particular and precautious in following their ways. In one Hadith narrated in Abu Dawud Shar?f, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaiyhi Wasallam) stated, "Whoever imitates a nation is considered amongst them."

?? ???? ???? ??? ????

It is a known fact that imitating a person creates a link of affinity and admiration for that person. In the beginning, the imitation is merely external whereby a person will imitate another person's dress and mannerisms. However, over a period of time the eternal imitation transforms into internal imitation whereby a person adopts his ethos and philosophy. If a person develops a great affinity and attachment to the ways and tenets of the non-Muslims, he will eventually drift away from the dogma and doctrine of Islam (may Allah protect us from that) which is the greatest loss.

In reference to your question, if a person is carrying out all of the religious obligations upon him and following the Sunan to the best of his ability, he should be encouraged to follow the Sunnah manner of dress as well. However, if a person, due to his own weakness and inability to adopt the Sunnah garb wears the western shirts and trousers, it will not necessarily mean that he has reneged from the fold of Islam. Unfortunately, so many Muslims have adopted this style of dress that it no longer remains a salient symbol or feature of the non-Muslims. Therefore, merely adopting such attire, despite it being disliked, will not cause a person to be raised up as a jew or christian.

And Allah knows best
