Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Why are you confusing people?
islam in todays world has branched into many different communities all having different believes and doings, AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT NO-ONE KNOWS WHOES RIGHT AND WRONG.
people are following a certain religion, and people like you intrude and try to
show as if you are right, and you answer question from the quran and so on.
people start following
I CAN SEE THAT YOU HAVE ANSWERS TO ALL KINDS OF QUESTION, BUT MY REQUEST TO YOU IS THAT IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR ALL THE MUSLIMS THAT YOU KEEP YOUR KNOWLEDGE TO YOUR SELF AND STOP TEACHING.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO A FAVOURABLE REPLY.
THANK YOU, BURHAN

Hate mail stop preaching
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 16, Surah An-Nahl Ayat 125:
Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and excellent admonition and argue with people in the best manner. Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Way and who is Rightly guided.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anam verse 70:
And leave alone those who have taken their ‘deen’ as a sport and past-time, and have been deluded by the life of this world. Nevertheless, you go on admonishing them by reciting the Quran to them, lest any person should be seized because of his own deeds; and that too, at a time, when there would be no protector, no helper, and no intercessor to rescue him from Allah; when no conceivable amount of ransom would be accepted from him. This is because such people shall be seized in consequence of what they themselves had earned!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 19 Surah Maryam verse 97:
We have made this Quran easy, and sent it down in your tongue so that you should give good news to the pious and warn the stubborn people.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 2-3:
This (Quran) is a Book which has been sent down to you. So, let there be no hesitation in your mind about it. This has been sent down that you may thereby warn (the disbelievers), and that it may be an Admonition to the believers. O people, follow what has been sent down to you from your Lord, and do not follow other ‘auliyaas’ besides Him. But you seldom take Admonition!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 14 Surah Ibrahim verses 1-2:
This (Al-Quran) is a Book which We have sent down to you that you may bring mankind, by the help of their Lord, out of the dark ways (of ignorance) into the Light (of knowledge), to the Way of that Lord, Who is All Powerful, and inherently All Praiseworthy, and the Owner of whatever is in the heavens and the earth.
Your Question: BUT MY REQUEST TO YOU IS THAT IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR ALL THE MUSLIMS THAT YOU KEEP YOUR KNOWLEDGE TO YOUR SELF AND STOP TEACHING.
Respected brother in Islam, Allah Subhanah is our witness, we neither started this humble forum nor do we spend countless hours answering the questions posed on the forum to gain even an iota of any material or worldly benefit or fame…..our one and only intention in starting this humble forum was to fulfill our duty laid by the Lord Creator upon every believer who has professed belief in Allah and the Last Day….ie. to invite all amongst mankind who care to listen to good caution to the Way of their Lord Who Created them.
If we were to obey your request, conceal the knowledge which our Lord in His Infinite Mercy has made available to us, and stop our humble efforts in presenting the Truth from the Quran and the Sunnah to any who is willing to listen to good caution…..we indeed fear the unbearable and unimaginable chastisement of an extremely Eventful and Tumultuous Day in the Presence of our Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 159:
Those who conceal the clear (Revelations) and Guidance We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book (Al-Quran), on them shall be Allah’s ‘laanah’ and the ‘laanah’ of those who are entitled to curse!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Al-Baqarah verse 174:
Indeed those who conceal the Commands that Allah has sent down in His Book and barter them away for paltry worldly gains, fill their bellies with fire. Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He regard them as pure and there is a painful torment for them!
If what was presented to you by us from the Quran and the Sunnah on our humble forum did not appeal to you as the Absolute Truth, it might well be that it was due to our ignorance, our lack of knowledge, and our severe short-coming in our presentations….. for Allah is our witness brother, there is no bigger Truth in creation than the guidance of the Glorious Quran and the Sunnah of the Last and Final Messenger of Allah (saws). In all sincerity and absolute humility, we sincerely seek your forgiveness and above all the forgiveness of our Lord Most Merciful if, due to our own shortcoming in knowledge we have not been able to do justice in presenting the Truth from the Glorious Quran and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
Allah is our witness brother, our intention in moderating this humble forum was never to hurt anyone, or point fingers at others, or cause any further division or diffusion in the unfortunately already divided Ummah. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verses 111-112:
111 Allah hath purchased from the believers their persons and their goods;
for theirs (in return) is the Garden (of
112 Those that turn (to Allah) in repentance: that serve Him and praise Him; that wander in devotion to the Cause of Allah; that bow down and prostrate themselves in prayer; that enjoin good and forbid evil; and observe the limits set by Allah; (these do rejoice in the ‘bargain’ they have made with their Lord). So proclaim the glad tidings to the believers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verse 110:
110 Ye (O believers) are the best of peoples evolved for mankind, ye enjoin that what is right, forbid that what is evil, and ye believe in Allah.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 78:
78 And (O ye who believe) strive in His cause as ye ought to strive! He has chosen you and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father Abraham. It is He (Allah) Who has named you ‘Muslims’ both before, and in this (the Al-Quran); that the Messenger may be a witness for you and ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular prayer, give regular charity, and hold fast to Allah! He is your Protector; the Best to protect; and the Best to help!
Thus in conclusion my respected brother, as those who have professed belief in Allah and the Last Day, we are under obligation unto our Lord Creator that we strive to serve in His Cause to the best of our ability…..and in absolute humility, and awe, and fear, we sincerely beg and implore and beseech our Lord Most Merciful that He give us, and all the believers who are dedicated to the Cause of Allah, the ‘tawfeeq’ to continue to present the Truth from the Quran and the Sunnah to all who are willing to listen to good caution until we meet with our inevitable appointment of death, regardless of how much someone may detest it!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verses 40-44:
Some of these people will believe in (The Message) and others will not. Your Lord knows these mischief-makers very well indeed. If these people deny you, say to them: “I am responsible for my deeds and you are for yours. You are not accountable for what I do, nor am I for what you do.” There are many among them who hear what you say, but will you make the deaf to listen to you, even though they be incapable of understanding this? Then there are many others among them who see you. But will you show the way to the blind, even though they be bereft of sight? The fact is that Allah does not in any way wrong the people, but they wronged themselves.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 33:
We know that what they say grieves you. But it is not you whom they charge with falsehood! These wicked people are in fact, denying the Revelations of Allah!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 157-158:
Now that a clear Proof, a Guidance and Blessing (the Quran) has come to you from your Lord, who can be more unjust than the one who treats Our Revelations as false and turns away from them? We will inflict the severest torment on those who turn away from Our Revelations because of their aversion. Do the people now await that the Angels should come down before them? Or that your Lord may Himself come down? Or that the manifest Signs of your Lord should appear?
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rum verses 58-60:
We have set forth in this Quran every sort of argument to make the people understand; but whatever ‘Aayah’ you may bring, the disbelievers will certainly say, “You are following falsehood”. Thus does Allah seal up the hearts of those who understand not. So, patiently perservere; for surely the Promise of Allah is True. And let not those who have no certainty of faith, shake your firmness.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 34 Surah Saba verse 5:
As for those who strive hard to discredit Our Revelations, for them is a painful torment, most humiliating.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and wel
