Episode 9 – Let It Burn

  • Hope everyone had a good Ramadan and Eid in sha Allah

Death of George Floyd

I have several different simultaneous opinions:

Support for rebellion against police

  • Police enforce and perpetuate corrupt kufr law
  • Police clearly have a history of being racist
  • Police didn’t militarize when a bunch of white people were protesting on govt property open-carrying assault rifles
  • Imam Ahmad quote about the hairbrush and the oppressors:

When Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal was imprisoned, one of the prison guards came to him and asked him:

“O Abu ‘Abdillah! The hadith that is narrated regarding the oppressors and those that aid them – is it authentic?”

He said: “Yes.”

The prison guard then said: “So, I am considered to be an aide of the oppressors?”

Imam Ahmad replied: “No. The aides of the oppressors are those that comb your hair, and wash your clothes, and prepare your meals, and buy and sell from you. As for you, then you are one of the oppressors themselves!”

[‘Manaqib al-Imam Ahmad’, by Ibn al-Jawzi, p. 397]

Ka’b ibn Ujrah (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) came to us and we were nine people made up of five and four either of the two numbers representing Arabs and non-Arabs. He said, “Listen! Have you heard that there will be after me, rulers? If anyone goes to them and, despite their falsehood, vouches for their truth and, despite their tyranny, helps them over their oppression, then he does not belong to me and I am not his and he will not make it to my pond. And as for him, who does not go to them and does not aid them in their oppression and does not vouch their lies to be true, he is of me and I belong to him and he will come to me at the pond.”

Reference: Jami’ Tirmidhi (Hadith # 2259), Saheeh at Targheeb wat Tarheeb (Hadith # 2244), Sunan an Nasai (Hadith # 4207, 4208), Saheeh ibn e Hibban (Hadith # 283), Mustadrak al-Haakim (Hadith # 263, 264), M’ujam al-Kabeer (Hadith # 294, 295,296), Sunan al-Baihiqi al-Kubra (Hadith # 16445). Authenticated by al-Albani in Saheeh Jami’ Tirmidhi and Saheeh at-Targheeb wat Tarheeb and his grading of Sunan an Nasai, Shu’aib Arnaoot classified it as Sahih in his classification of Saheeh ibn e Hibban.

Episode 7 – The Myth of the “Moderate” Muslim

This was initially a written blog post, but then I decided to record a podcast episode instead. The original blog post is below, and below that are the show notes.

You know what really KILLS me about the westernized/modernized/asleep/coconut/whatever you-want-to-call-them so-called “Muslims”? They themselves are guilty of all the accusations they make against others and they don’t see it.

For example: They act like they’re so open minded and tolerant, but the moment you bring an understanding/opinion/evidence that contradicts their “hold hands and sing kumbayah” worldview, they immediately drop their open-minded tolerance and start name-calling, always hiding behind the excuses of “context” and “nuance”, even when the supposed context actually proves them wrong.

Show Notes

Ahadith on Martyrdom:

The Prophet [SAW] said: “Whoever fights to protect his wealth and is killed, he is a martyr. Whoever fights to protect himself, he is a martyr. Whoever fights to protect his family is a martyr.”

أَخْبَرَنَا عَمْرُو بْنُ عَلِيٍّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ مَهْدِيٍّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ أَبِي عُبَيْدَةَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ طَلْحَةَ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَوْفٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ زَيْدٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ قَاتَلَ دُونَ مَالِهِ فَقُتِلَ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ قَاتَلَ دُونَ دَمِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ قَاتَلَ دُونَ أَهْلِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Episode 1: My Journey to Islam

This being the first episode of the podcast, I wanted to introduce myself and tell my story of how I came to Islam. 

Generally, when reading a book written by the scholars of Islam, an introductory biography of the scholar is included so that you know who you are learning from. For this first episode, I wanted to follow their example.
