IMPORTANT COMMAND “O ye who believe! if you are conscious of and fear Allah (TAQWA), He will grant you a criterion (FURQAN-to judge between right and wrong), remove from you (all) evil (that may afflict) you, and forgive you: for Allah is the Lord of grace unbounded.” (Qur’an: Anfaal: 8: 29) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  7. 7. REMEMBER : Do not be hasty .... Something should not be denied just because we cannot fully satisfy whatever curiosity we have regarding it. It teaches us that we should not be hasty in addressing any issue, but to consider carefully what is being offered based on available knowledge. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  8. 8. REMEMBER : Do not be hasty .... The key point here is, knowledge. To accept something is with knowledge, and to deny it also must be based upon knowledge. Do not reject something by simply basing it upon our ignorance of that thing - e.g. some people categorically deny something with the irrelevant excuse "because , I have not come across it." All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  9. 9. REMEMBER : Do not be hasty .... This statement is simply an admission of his ignorance of that thing, not a proof (knowledge) that that thing does not exist! From the above, we are taught, nay, warned against being hasty in 2 things : All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  10. 10. REMEMBER : Do not be hasty .... (1) That we must not believe a thing unless we have sure knowledge about it. (Warning against hasty believing something without knowledge). (2) That we must not deny a thing unless we have sure knowledge about it. (Warning against hasty denial (categorical rejection) without knowledge). All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  11. 11. Note: Our Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. warns us: “Whoever seeks knowledge to argue with the learned (scholars), or to brag with the foolish; or with it to attract peoples’ attention to himself; Allah will make him to enter the Hell-fire.” (Hadith also reported by Tirmidzi and Ibn Majah) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  13. 13. Note: Our Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. warns us: “Three things make up the essential basis of believing (iiman): [1] To stop (to desist) from accusing as unbeliever, anyone who has declared – ‘There is no god except Allah’; [2] never regard him as heretic (unbeliever) only because of his committing sins nor to consider him as having exited from Islam because of his act of disobedient ; and [3] duty of JIHAD (striving in the cause of Allah) remains since the time I was sent till the last one in my ummah battles the Dajjal (antichrist) .... “ (Hadith reported by Abu Dawud) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  14. 14. Note: Our Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. warns us: “When a person says to his (Muslim) brother , (Yaa Kaafir) – ‘Hey Unbeliever!’, then the accusation for being an unbeliever will be upon either one of them” (Hadith reported by Bukhary) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  15. 15. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  16. 16. The demarcating difference between Al-Islam and other religion is in the AQEEDAH (Belief or doctrines – in the intellect), the categorical different separating “TAUHEED” with “SHIRK ”. In the acts of religious devotions and practices, there are bound to be certain similarities in some of the outward forms practiced in Islam with that found in other religions. This is unavoidable. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  17. 17. Certain outward practices adopted by those who uphold TAUHEED and those MUSHREEK, may only ‘seemed’ to be similar, but when we scrutinize with ‘justice’(‘ADL) and knowledge (‘ILM), indeed they are in reality totally and fundamentally different. TAUHEED is the good word containing the seed the good tree. And SHIRK would also grow into a tree, but totally different from that of TAUHEED. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  18. 18. When we study the SEERAH of our Prophet s.a.a.w. We can discern that not every practices done by the Quraysh before Islam were totally discarded, nor certain symbols or relics destroyed. The first 13 years, our Prophet’s DA’WAH is to infuse TAUHEED to removed SHIRK in peoples AQEEDAH , through knowledge, wisdom and beautiful (fair) exhortations. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  19. 19. Thus when TAUHEED has been established and SHIRK removed in the Muslims AQEEDAH, even the outward symbols and practices were retained and preserved by Allah and Rasulullah s.a.w., e.g. rites of Hajj, Ka’aba, Hajr-alAswad, Maqam Ibrahim, Mount Safa , Marwah, Mina, Arafah, animal sacrifice, sacred months, etc. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  20. 20. “It is He Who has sent amongst the Unlettered a messenger from among themselves, to rehearse to them His Signs, to sanctify them, and to instruct them in Scripture and Wisdom― although they had been, before, in manifest error―” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013) (Qur’an: Juma’ah: 62: 2)
  21. 21. “As well as (to confer all these benefits upon) others of them, who have not already joined them: and He is Exalted in Might, Wise.” (Qur’an: Juma’ah: 62: 3) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  22. 22. REFLECT DEEPLY WHAT THE PROPHET S.A.W. SAID IN HIS FAREWELL SERMON: All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  23. 23. REFLECT DEEPLY WHAT THE PROPHET S.A.W. SAID IN HIS FAREWELL SERMON: “O Mankind! Verily Satan has lost all hope that he will ever be worshipped on this earth forever, but if you obey him in other deeds (acts which may seem to you to be) petty (or small), it will please him. So be very careful of (following) him (regarding these) in your religion.” (Excerpt from the “Seerah” by Ibnu Hisham, “al-Iqd-ul Farid” by Ibnu Abdi Rabbih and Bukhary’ s “Saheeh”) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  24. 24. REFLECT DEEPLY WHAT THE PROPHET S.A.W. SAID: All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  25. 25. REFLECT DEEPLY WHAT THE PROPHET S.A.W. SAID: “Verily, what I fear the most for my community (ummah) is SHIRK (ascribing partners) to Allah. I am not saying that they will worship the sun or the moon or idols, but it is in their being insincere in doing good deeds, not intending it for Allah’s sake but only to please their hidden desires.” (Hadith reported by Ibnu Majah in “Kitab Az-Zuhdu”) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  26. 26. Mere objects, places or outward similarity with practices of old, was never the criteria for Islam’s rejection. As explained – what constitute “TAUHEED” or “SHIRK” is not in the act per se but, in a persons’ beliefs regarding aspects of ULUHIYYAH (Divinity) and RUBBUBIYYAH (Lordship). All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  27. 27. Also it must be clarified here that Islam rejects certain of the concepts as found in other religion – viz. where they imagine God as “incarnating” or God “in-dwelling” (HULUL) or God “union with the creation” (ITTIHAAD). These are false ideas opposed to TAUHEED, which is the main cause of most SHIRK attached to things. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  28. 28. Thus although like us, the MUSHRIKEEN has MA’BUD (that which they worship), yet we categorically reject many false idea regarding God (Divinity) and whatever they are worshipping. And when the MUSHRIKEEN venerate or show respect (TA’ZEEM) to their MA’BUD and religious relics connected to their religion, we regard these as SHIRK. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  29. 29. On the other hand, when a Muslim (MUWAHEED) who shows veneration, respect or honour (TA’ZEEM) to the sacred symbols (SHI’AR) in Islam, it is not SHIRK. Accusing them so is foolish and malicious. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  30. 30. On the other hand, when a Muslim (MUWAHEED) who shows veneration, respect or honour (TA’ZEEM) to the sacred symbols (SHI’AR) in Islam, it is not SHIRK. Accusing them so is foolish and malicious. “Such (is the Pilgrimage): whoever (YU-’AZEEM) honours the sacred rites of Allah, for him it is good in the sight of his Lord.” (Qur’an: Hajj: 22: 30) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  31. 31. On the other hand, when a Muslim (MUWAHEED) who shows veneration, respect or honour (TA’ZEEM) to the sacred symbols (SHI’AR) in Islam, it is not SHIRK. Accusing them so is foolish and malicious. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  32. 32. On the other hand, when a Muslim (MUWAHEED) who shows veneration, respect or honour (TA’ZEEM) to the sacred symbols (SHI’AR) in Islam, it is not SHIRK. Accusing them so is foolish and malicious. “Such (is his state): and whoever holds in honour the Symbols of Allah (SHA-’A-IRALLAAH), (as in the sacrifice of animals), such (honour) should come truly from piety of heart (TAQWA).” (Qur’an: Hajj: 22: 32) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  34. 34. “Behold! Safa and Marwah are among the Symbols of Allah (MIN SHA-’AA-IRILLAH). So if those who visit the house in the season or at other times, should compass them round, it is no sin in them. And if anyone obeys his own impulse to Good―be sure that Allah is He Who recognises and knows.” (Qur’an: Baqarah: 2: 158) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  36. 36. The term “ word “ “ pronounce ‘TABARRUK’ – is from the “ BARAKAH “ - meaning : “blessings, happiness, increase, expand, goodness (seen or unseen), etc.” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  37. 37. Ar-Raghib defines ‘BARAKAH’ : “ (Blessings) ‘AL-BARAKAH’ is the goodness which the Divine (Allah) has bestowed (or fixed) in something.” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  38. 38. Therefore: TABARRUK – means “seeking or hoping, to derive Divine goodness (blessings) through those (occasion, persons, (traces) relics, things, or places, etc.” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  39. 39. “If the people of the towns had but believed and feared Allah, We should indeed have opened out to them (all kinds of) blessings (BARAKAH) from heaven and earth..” (Qur’an: A’raf: 7: 96) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  40. 40.  “BARAKAH “ (Blessings) here encompasses those goodness which we can know, but also includes especially the unseen ‘spiritual’ bestowals beyond our human knowledge.  Muslims are aware that such “bestowals”, when present, would immensely benefit one’s life even though these could not be physically quantified. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  41. 41. IN FOOD AND PROVISION “O Allah” (Send upon us) Your Blessings (BARIK-LANA) in (this) our provision (food) and save us from the torments of the Fire.” (Hadith reported by Ibnus-Sunny) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  42. 42.  In this Du’a we invoke Allah’s blessings in whatever provision which we are give. What these ‘blessings’ are we do not claim to know them all, but only Allah Who is all-knowing – Wa-Allaahu a’lam.  But the invoking for these (blessings) is “value-add” which we believe can be bestowed by Allah, differentiates us from the heedless (GHAAFILEEN) and the unbelievers (KAAFIREEN). All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  43. 43. AMONGST THE WEAK & POOR “You are not given help and provision (by Allah) except because of (blessings in the) presence of the weak (and the poor) amongst you.” (Hadith reported by Bukhary) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  44. 44.  Do not under estimate the presence of the poor and weak amongst us.  We are in fact being tested with their presence, such that by our rightfully fulfilling their rights, we may deserve being assisted by Allah with much blessings.  Remember, Allah is with the “broken-hearted and patiently persevering ones.” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  45. 45. IN EVERY UNDERTAKINGS “Every important matter (affair) which is not begun with (reciting the Basmallah) ‘In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful’ , it will become deprived (of the Blessings)” (Hadith reported by ar-Rahawy) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  46. 46.  From this “Sunnah”, in attaching in every affairs the name of Allah, we Muslims are confident to benefit a continuous bestowal of Allah’s blessings in our life. SUB-HAANALLAH! All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  47. 47.  Another example, which even by our attaching Allah’s name, harms are averted: ‘In the name of Allah, nothing (attached) with His name, is harmed (from whatever is) on earth or in the Heavens, and He (Allah) is The All-Seeing, The AllKnowing.’ All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  50. 50. CLARIFICATION ON THE INTERPRETATION OF HADITH Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. said: “Do not praise (or exalt) me excessively (ITWRA’)* like how the Christians excessively praised (exalted) ‘Isa (Jesus) the son of Mary.” (Hadith ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013) * By regarding him to be “Divine”
  51. 51.  There are some who uses this Hadith (and their ‘interpretation’ of it) to discourage the Muslims from expressing their attachment, love, respect, praising and honouring the Prophet s.a.a.w. as though, to them this is forbidden by this Hadith..  Yet, when we analyze this. Our Prophet specifically forbade only regarding the misguided ‘kind’ of honouring or praising of the Christians towards Jesus (“Isa) a.s. – elevating him to being Divine. And no Muslim would regard any of the prophets to be Divine.  To accord Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. the highest respect, honour, praise, adopt proper Adab to, etc. is in fact commanded by Allah and His Messenger – not SHIRK but an aspect of a Muslim’s IIMAN.

All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  76. 76.  We can understand though why some Muslims, especially those who compare Islam simplistically with other religion to conclude that every acts of “seeking blessings and veneration” of things and places practiced even by Muslims must also be “shunned” – ruled by them to also be “ SHIRK “ or if not, they would justify their stand with the caveat of “closing the door” to SHIRK.  Yet, as we have learnt, the true cause of SHIRK is in the ignorance and their flawed belief of TAUHEED ARRUBUBIYYAH and ULUHIYYAH. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  77. 77.  Upholding TAUHEED does not mean one must deny the presence of and the validity in seeking of the bounteous blessings (BARAKAH) of Allah.  Just as what can be adduced by the evidence (from AlQur’an, As-Sunnah and opinions of pious predecessors) that, the blessings of Allah indeed are present in certain people, events, things and places - and seeking to gain Allah’s blessings (TABARRUK) through them were done by previous righteous people of TAUHEED. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  78. 78.  What differentiate us from the MUSHRIKEEN is the erroneous belief (AQEEDAH) they hold. Many of them subscribe to HULUL (divine in-dwelling) and actually regard these things or the persons they venerate or sought blessings from (TABARRUK), as possessing “divine” aspect or attributes – thus a clear SHIRK (ascribing partners to Allah). All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  79. 79.  Whereas Muslims with TAUHEED do not hold such belief. Our concept of something regarded as “sacred”, totally rejects all such suggestion of any Divine “in-dwelling” or “incarnation” or “union”.  Thus ‘Umar al-Khattab r.a. said to the black stone (HAJR-AL-ASWAD): “You are but a stone which cannot benefit nor harm, but because I have seen the Prophet s.a.w kissed you, I now kiss you!” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
