Do you have Gheera for the Deen of Allaah?  


The scholars are those who start out as students of the genuine scholars, and they spent decades learning from them, and they pass all their tests. Then, when they have passed all the tests and fulfilled all the requirements, the genuine scholars declare them "scholars."

So the scholars are well known and listed, kind of like the doctors are well known and listed. Who - by Allaah's Permission - declares someone a doctor? The Board of doctors, right? Likewise - actually, even more so - the genuine scholars declare - by Allaah's Permission - someone a scholar. And these genuine scholars have told us "there are no scholars out west," so we are not fooled.  

And just like if a surgeon has a problem in his foundation, he will not be allowed to perform surgery, likewise - actually, even more so - any one with even one mistake in 'aqidah or manhaj is advised, and if he refuses, then knowledge is not taken from him and he is warned against for the benefit of the Ummah and the preservation of the Deen of Allaah [in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam), who talked about Dhul-Khwaisra and others in their absence].

One mistake in the foundation keeps scholars and other defenders of the Deen up at night, worrying and making plans to help keep sincere Muslims from falling into such evil. Those who have no Gheera [honorable jealousy, protection] for the Deen shrug off mistakes in 'aqidah and allow them to fall off their shoulders like water in the shower, and may actually - and Allaah's refuge is sought from this - wind up supporting and defending the innovators and their bid'ah.

The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu 'alaihiwasallam) said, "May Allaah curse he who harbors (accomodates) an innovator (Muhdithan)" and in another wording "that which is innovated (Muhdathan)."  [Explanation of this hadeeth, by Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez ar-Rayyis, found below]

Student of knowledge Abu Hakeem Bilal Davis (may Allaah reward him) said the following in explaining why Yasir Qadhi was refuted by the scholars of Madinah and is warned against by Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jama'ah:

quote:
But ikhwaan, what should be the case for the one who has gheera [honorable jealousy, protection] for his Deen, and gheera for the Sunnah, is the he should be angry at the statements these people are making concerning the Deen, and the Sunnah, and the manhaj, and ahlul-'ilm (the People of Knowledge), and the Salafiyoon, generally. That is what we should be angry about. Not the fact that one individual is spoken against. And why is he spoken against? [Is it] something because of his family, his kids, his characteristics, his features? [No.] He's spoken against because of the statemets he's made concerning the Deen of Allaah! The Deen of Allaah! And ikhwan, therefore, when that is the case, let us get our priorities straight as it relates to this issue of speaking against individuals who oppose the Deen of Allaah. It is Allaah's Deen, ikhwan, that we defend when we speak against these individuals.

From a Question and Answer Session with Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez ar-Rayyis (hafidhahullaah), via a telelink with Masjid As-Salaam in Utah, America:

Question: What is the meaning of the saying of the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu 'alaihiwasallam), "May Allaah curse he who harbors (accomodates) an innovator (Muhdithan)" and in another wording "that which is innovated (Muhdathan)."  

Answer: This hadith collected by Imam Muslim, on the authority of 'Ali ibn Abi Talib, and the wording is: "Allaah curses the one who harbors (supports, accomodates) an innovator" and in another narration "the innovation." The meaning of this hadith with the first wording, in which you have the kasra (referring to the word muhdithan) is regarding the person who perpetrates against Islam and the Muslims either through killing or thievery or innovation and the likes. So this individual perpetrates a crime against Islam and against the Muslims by killing, or thievery or innovation (bid'ah) and the likes, this is the one who is intended [by this hadith]. So the curse is upon the one who supports this type of individual.

The meaning of the second wording which has the fatha (referring to the word al Muhdathan), referring to the one who harbors or supports the innovation (bid'ah), meaning the one who is pleased with the innovation or the one who defends the innovation, then this is what has been mentioned by As-Suyooti and his comments of the Sunnan of Imam An-Nasa`i.

The difference between muhdithan and Muhdathan is that muhdithan is regarding the individual himself, the one who has done the innovation and the likes, and Muhdathan is regarding the innovation, which is greater with Allaah, subhanahu wa taaa'ala, than the sins of following evil desires like illegal sexual intercourse and the likes.

May Allaah make us among those who have gheera for the Deen. Ameen.

Al-Hamdulillaah



Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.

Is there a criterion that a person can use to distinguish a true scholar from an imitator?

Question: There are several individuals these days who claim to possess knowledge and, because of this, people have become very confused in their religion. Is there a criterion that a person can use to distinguish a true scholar from an imitator? Please benefit us, may Allaah grant you much good.

Answer by Shaikh 'Abdul-Azeez bin Baaz (rahimahullaah):
quote:
In the Name of Allaah, and all praise belongs to Him. The sign of a true scholar is clear; he is the individual who presents the Qur`an and the Sunnah as proofs. You become aware of his correctness by asking the people of knowledge who know him. Also, a person should investigate and ask the trustworthy people about him, in order to be safe that he is (actually) from the people of knowledge. The true scholar is furthermore known by his (correct) religion and uprightness, and his diligence in seeking verdicts, and by the proofs he presents.

He is also known by his actions in addition to the recommendations mentioned by those who know him. It is not befitting that a person takes this matter lightly and asks anybody; rather one should investigate, as it relates to his religion, and ask the trustworthy and reliable from amongst the people of knowledge in his country or in the country he travels to.

This should be done in order for him to be at ease, because he has asked the people of knowledge regarding this matter.
