The Strong Mu-min is Better than the Weak Mu-min PDF Print E-mail
Sayings of Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb



(In the aftermath of the First Oil War – dubbed the Persian Gulf War by the West – Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah, Rahmatullahi Alaih, spoke on the upheavals facing this Ummah and the solution to overcome our weakness, our decline, our helplessness and our miserable state of being downtrodden and hopeless. Today, as the whole Ummah is being engulfed and swollen up by the enemies of Islam, the reproduction of the Majlis conducted by Hazrat is most appropriate. After this Majlis, Hazrat commented to a senior Ustaad of Madrasah Miftaahul Uloom, Jalalabad: “Molvi Saheb! Topical questions have been answered in today’s Majlis.” It rests with us to reflect and prepare ourselves accordingly. O Allah! Grant us the taufeeq.)



A person depicted the condition of youngsters in these times very succinctly, “Hazrat! Home has become a hotel for children nowadays. They come home when they want, eat and then are gone. When they want, they come and sleep.”

This statement really appeals to me; “Home has become a hotel for children nowadays.” This is the summary; the summary of today’s state-of-affairs.

Sayings of Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb

136. If the gaze was even minutely on the Aakhirat there would not have been even a minute scope for takabbur (arrogance) in the heart.

137. Those who had their gazes on the Aakhirat, they took an oath that they were worse than dogs and swine.

138. By virtue of the gaze being on the Aakhirat one does not look (with pride) at the good one did, rather the reward of Allah is yearned for.

139. Tool-e-Amal is to cherish distant hopes. This Tool-e-Amal is haraam. It is a spiritual sickness.

140. The gaze of the Akaabir was on A’maal and hence their actions were consistent at home and on journey; their devotional practices (ma’moolaat) were the same inside their homes and outside.

Q&A: A Gift and a Will Dispute (1) PDF Print E-mail
Fiqh and Masaail - Mu'aamulaat Bay' ( Buisness dealings)

Q. During my sister’s lifetime she made a gift of her house to me. She emptied the house, giving away the furniture, etc. I had possession of the house for many years since the time my sister gifted it to me. I had paid the rates, etc. over the years and generally maintained the premises.
However, an institution is claiming the house on the basis of a will supposedly left by my sister. According to the alleged will, the house was or is gifted to the Institution. Please advise me and help.

A. On the basis of the abovementioned facts, the Shariah’s ruling is as follows:

The wasiyyat (bequest) made in the English will is not valid. When your sister made the gift to you, then it amounts to a cancellation of the wasiyyat assuming that the will is dated before the gift. If the will is dated after the gift was made to you, then it is null and void because a wasiyyat cannot be made of someone else’s property. In this case it was your property which you had acquired by way of the gift.

The Institution never was the owner since your sister had not given possession of the house to it. As such, the Institution has no Islamic right to claim the house from you. However, if the house is still on your sister’s name and the English will stipulates that it is a ‘gift’ for the Institution, then in terms of the kufr law of the country you will lose the house and on the Day of Qiyaamah, the house and the entire area under the house down into the bowels of the earth will be made into a weight of punishment and fitted around the neck of the Institution for its haraam act of extortion.

Q&A: A Gift and a Will Dispute (2) PDF Print E-mail
Fiqh and Masaail - Mu'aamulaat Bay' ( Buisness dealings)

Q. A counsellor states that I, the sister, do not inherit from my sister because according to English and Islamic law only a spouse or children can inherit. My sister’s husband, children, big sister, mother and father were deceased at the time my sister made the will for the institution. I was the only sister left, that’s why my sister changed her mind to give me the house as a gift before her death. The counsellor states that the letter which I received from The Jamiat is only a fatwa and he says because my sister gave the house to the institution, she could not take it back and give it to me.

A. We have clarified the position of the Shariah with regard to the house your sister gifted you, in our previous letter. The counsellor’s statement that our response is “only a fatwa,” is tantamount to rejection of a Shar’i injunction and borders on kufr. Indoctrination in kufr laws of the west has blinded this counsellor to the Law of Allah Ta’ala.

We have no coercive power in the matter. At best we can point out the Law of the Shariah. Those who choose to be blind to a Shar’i Fatwa do so with grave consequences for their Aakhirah. May Allah Ta’ala soften their hearts to your plight.

Q&A: The Error of This Year's (1435/2014) Eidul Fitr Announcement PDF Print E-mail
Fiqh and Masaail - Fasting and Eid

Q. People in the UK who reject Saudi moon sightings made Eid after accepting SA sightings. There are now claims that the sightings were not in accordance with Shariah and Qadha roza has to be kept. Please clarify the situation.

A. The announcements made of Eidul Fitr this year were based on incorrect evidence -- evidence which is dismissed by the Shariah of Allah Ta'ala.

In spite of clear skies in the Gauteng Province, on the basis of the sighting of 22 persons scattered in several locations the decision was taken by some Ulama Bodies to announce Eidul Fitr for Monday the 28th July.

In such clear visibility the Shariah instructs that large crowds of people (Jamm-e-Ghafeer) report their sighting. In the absence of Jamm-e-Ghafeer the sightings of lone individuals and small groups are inadmissible and Eid, therefore, cannot be celebrated.

Thus, the Jamiatul Ulama of Guateng declares that Eid was celebrated by error on the 30th of Ramadhaan this year, 1435/2014.

All Muslims who followed the erroneous announcements made from certain quarters in South Africa and ended their Fast on Sunday, 27th July are required to keep one day Qadha and those who terminated their I'tikaaf on the 27th are also required to fill in a day and night of I'tikaaf. The I'tikaaf could be with the Qadha of the missed fast.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
