Beware of the hypocrisy and corruption of the two-faced

In the name of Allāh, the Merciful, the bestower of Mercy

Beware of the Hypocrisy and Corruption of the Two-faced

By Abū al-Hasan Mālik Ādam al-Akhdar

It was related by Abū Hurayrah (radhi Allaahu anhu) that the Messenger of Allāh (sallallaahu aaihi wa sallam) said,

Indeed the worst of the people are the two-faced, those who go to one group of people with one face and a different group with another.”[1]

In his explanation of this narration, al-Hāfiz Ibn Hajr (rahimahullaah) says, “al-Qurtub stated,

Indeed the one who is two-faced is the worst of the people because he is similar to the hypocrite[2],using cajolery and lying to create fasād (corruption) between the people.

Al-Nawawī said,

He is the one who goes to each group of people with that which will please them, so he gives them the impression that he is with them and against the other group, and his action is that of hypocrisy, lying, deceit and using trickery to uncover the secrets of each group; and it is from the prohibited sycophancy.’”[3]

Also, in his book al-Zawājir, Al-Haythamī(rahimahullaah) considers the two-faced person from the people of major sin. He states,

“The Two-hundred and Fifty-third Major Sin: the speech of the fork-tongued, i.e. the two-faced, who has no regard with Allāh.”[4]

In another wording of the narration, ‘Ammār ibn Yāsir(radhi Allaahu anhu) related that the Messenger of Allāh (sallallaahu aaihi wa sallam) said,

Whoever had two-faces in the worldly life will have two tongues of fire on the Day of Resurrection.” [5]

Azīm Ābadī(rahimahullaah) says: “Al-‘Alqamī stated:

This means that since he came to each group with different faces to cause corruption, he will be given two tongues of fire like the two tongues he had with each group in the worldly life.’”[6]

Therefore, it is incumbent upon the believers to be wary of those who carry other people’s speech to them, “So and so said such and such about you,” only to turn around and take the second party’s speech back to the first. For how many close companions have been turned into enemies and much rancor has replaced love among us as a result of such machinations? And if these provocateurs truly understood what awaited them from punishment and humiliation, perhaps it would cause them to turn to All ā h in penitence and repair the bonds their whispers have destroyed. We ask Allāh (azzawajal), the Mighty and Majestic, to give us protection from the two-faced and to unite our hearts upon Islām and Sunnah.

A Word on Easter – A benefit from Ibn Katheer

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillahi

Ammaa Ba’d:

Since this is the easter season and much is being said about the significance of easter and its claimed origins. It is well known that easter and the customary practices within this season have, in truth, no connection to Jesus the son of Mary, but in fact have paganistic origins (The term ‘Easter’ is in actuality a reference to the Persian goddess of fertility ‘Ishtar’ who was worshipped at this time of year. The Easter bunny and Easter egg (symbolic of fertility) are likewise paganistic in origin, thus these traditions were ‘imported’ into Christianity. We mention here then, a benefit related to the significance of Easter and clarification concerning a misconception.

The Christian narrative suggests that Eesaa had travelled to Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover (which was that which took place prior to the day that Allah saved Moosa and his followers from pharaoh and his army, the day of Aashooraa. The biblical story suggests that it had been decreed that the firstborn sons of the people of Egypt would be killed as a punishment for rejection of Moosaa except the households of the believers, who were commanded to smear lambs blood around their doors which would cause the angel of death to ‘passover’ that household.) The following week he (Jesus) learnt that his time to go was near, thus he had a ‘Last Supper’ with his disciples on a day which is referred to as maunday Thursday and then washed their feet. On Friday he was crucified and then on Sunday, Christians believe, he was raised from the dead and that is celebrated on easter Sunday.

It is established in the book of Allah, that it was not Eesaa who was taken and crucifed in fact it was someone Allah made to resemble him (based upon one of the positions of the scholars of tafseer) and he was taken in his place.

Allah the most high states (concerning the reasons of disbelief of the Jews):

and because of their saying (in boast) “We killed the Messiah Eesaa, son of Mary the Messenger of Allah, but they didn’t kill him, neither did they crucify him but rather a resemblance was made..”

When the Christian version of the story is mentioned many conclude that the incident of the last supper is the same as that mentioned in Suratul Maa’idah Vs 112-115:

(Remember) when the disciples said: “O Eesaa, Son of Maryam! Can your lord send to us a table spread with food from the heavens? Eesaa said: “Fear Allah if you are indeed believers” They said: “We wish to eat thereof and to satisfy our hearts and know that you have indeed spoken the truth to us and that we may be witnesses thereof. Eesaa son of Maryam said: “Oh Allah Our Lord send us from the heavens a table spread that it may be a feast for us, the first of us and the last of us and a sign from thee and give us sustenance for though art the best of sustainers. Allah said: ‘I am going to send it down unto you, but if any of you disbelieves , then I will punish him with a torment such as I have never inflicted upon anyone among all the aalameen (Mankind and the Jinn)

It should be mentioned that this incident is NOT the same incident as the last supper, as is commonly misunderstood, in fact this incident has NO mention in the bible at all.

Imaam Ibn Katheer mentions in tafseer of the verse:

“The story of the table spread (descending from the heavens) is not mentioned in the Injeel, it is not known by the christians except by way of the Muslims, and Allah knows best.”

Imaam Ibn Katheer mentions a number of narrations (much of them unconfirmed) that are linked to this story.

Some of those narrations mention that Eesaa had commanded his followers to fast for thirty days after which they made the request for the table since they were in need of eating and they were for the most part poor and needy.

One narration states that when they made the request Eesaa became upset with them and mentioned the fact that the people of ‘Aad were destroyed because they asked their prophet for a sign and due to how they received and responded to the sign Allah sent to them, they earned the anger of Allah and were destroyed.

Some narrations would appear to liken the occurrence to the popular ‘feeding of the five thousand’ incident, since some narrations mention four thousand individuals were present while other narrations mention that the meal consisted of fish and bread which is similar to the food mentioned in the feeding of the five thousand incident in the bible, is it a reference to the same occurrance? No doubt there are similarities.

In any case, that which is established, is that the affair of the table descending from the sky is not mentioned in any christian source, as is the case with that which is mentioned in the Qur’aan concerning the story of the birth of Eesaa and him speaking in the cradle, and other affairs that have no mention in the Bible. This establishes then the falsehood of those who claim that the Messenger ‏‏ (ﷺ)wrote the Qur’aan after being inspired by some of the people of the book he had sat with, and he then modelled his book upon christian scripture!

Some of the scholars of tafseer held that in fact the table did NOT descend because they say that when Allah said:

“..but if any of you disbelieves , then I will punish him with a torment such as I have never inflicted upon anyone among all the aalameen (Mankind and the Jinn)

They (Jesus’ disciples) responded by saying:

“Then we have no need for it!” and it didn’t descend. This was held by Mujaahid and Al Hasan (Al Basri) and Ibn Katheer declared the chains of narration going back to these statements of these two Imaams of the Salaf to be ‘Saheeh’

He then goes on to mention that this may be one of the reasons it does not occur in their sources, for if it had occurred then the narrations from them would have been plentiful.

But then he ultimately concludes that the majority of the scholars of tafseer hold that it DID occur, and this is the choice of Imaam Ibn Jareer At Tabari, because Allah affirms that he sent it down with his statement:

“..I am going to send it down unto you, but if any of you disbelieves , then I will punish him…”

It is for this reason some narrations mention that Eesaa disliked the request, but that which highlights the virtue of Muhammad – Sallallahu alaihi was Salam, is that when a similar request was made to him he responded to the request differently.

Upon the authority of Ibn Abbaas – Radhiyallahu anhu who said: ” (Individuals from The tribe of) Quraish approached the Prophet – Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Salam and said: “Make Dua to your lord for us to that he turn Mount Safaa into gold! and then we will believe in you! So He said: “And will you do so? they said: “Yes! so the Messenger of Allah supplicated to Allah and he was approached by Jibreel who said to him: “Indeed your lord conveys Salaam to you and says: “If you wish I will turn Safaa into gold but whosoever disbelieves after that I will punish him with a punishment I have not inflicted upon anyone in creation, or if you wish I will open for them the door of repentance and mercy” so he said: “Then the doors of repentance and mercy

(Collected by Imaam Ahmad in his ‘Musnad 4/60 and Al Faakihi In ‘Akhbaar Makkah 4/12 and declared ‘Saheeh’ by Shaikh Al Albaani in ‘As Saheehah 9/174)

Highlighting the mercy the Messenger -Sallallahu alaihi was Salam – had and his desire to see people guided to the Haq even though many of them were arrogant and steeped in rejection.

A Tremendous Dua!

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillah

Indeed the meaningful duas of the Messenger – Sallallahu Alaihi Was Salam are many (and all of his supplications are meaningful) but the following is one many im sure will find relavant to our trying times Allahul Musta’aan

اللهمَّ إني أعوذ بكَ من جارِ السُّوءِ ، ومن زوج تشيِّبني قبلَ المشيبِ ، ومن ولد يكونُ عليّ رَبّاً، ومن مالٍ يكونُ عَليّ عذاباً ، ومن خليلٍ ماكرٍ عينُه تراني ، وقلبُه يرعاني ؛ إنْ رأى حسنةً دفنَها ، وإذا رأى سيئّئةً أذاعَها

Abu Hurairah – Radhiyallahu anhu said:

From his (The Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi wa Salam) supplications was:

Oh Allah! I seek refuge in you from an evil neighbour;

and from a wife that causes me to grow old before old age;

and from a son who will become a master over me;

and from wealth that becomes a punishment for me

and from a cunning friend whose gaze is upon me and whose heart is plotting and planning against me, such that if he sees something good, he buries it, and if he sees something bad he spreads it

(The transliteration of which is: “Allahumma innee a’udhu bika min Jaaris Suu, wa min zawjin tushayyibunee qablal masheeb, wa min waladin yakoonu alaiyya rabban, wa min maalin yakoonu alaiyya ‘adhaaban, wa min khaleelin maakirin, ‘ainuhu taraanee, wa qalbuhu yar’aanee, in ra’aa hasanatan dafanahaa, wa idhaa ra’aa sayyi’a’tan adhaa’ahaa

(Collected by At Tabaraani in ‘Ad Dua’ (3/1425/1339) and its chain is declared ‘Jayyid’ (Good) by Shaikh Al Albaani in silsilatul Ahaadeethus Saheehah (No#3137)

Seal Ramadhān with Istighfār!

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salātu Was Salāmu ‘alaa Rasūlillahi

Ammā Ba’d:

With this the final day of the blessed month of Ramadhān, no doubt it grieves us to see it end with such quickness. And it the likes of this rapid movement of time that we witness that brings to mind the like of the statement of the Sahābi Al Jalīl Abdullah Ibn Mas’ūd – Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu who said:

I have not grieved over anything the way I grieve over a day that the sun sets, my determined period shortens, and I have not increased in my actions

But keep in mind constantly that the affairs are by ones final actions (as occurs in an authentic hadeeth), so let the end of this month of Ramadhān be with Istighfār (seeking forgiveness) from Allah and Taubah (repentance).

For certainly Istighfār is the seal of righteous actions.

Allah the most high said to his Messenger – Sallallahu alaihi was Salam at the end of his life:

When comes the help of Allah and the conquest (of Makkah),
And you see that the people enter Allah’s religion in crowds,
Then glorify the praise of your lord (declare him free of imperfections) and seek his forgiveness.
Verily he is the one who accepts the repentance and forgives.”

(Suratun Nasr)

Allah the most high similarly commands the Hujaaj (Pilgrims) when they have finished their rites to make istighfār

Then depart from the place whence all the people depart and ask Allah for his forgiveness. Truly Allah is Oft Forgiving Most Merciful

(Suratul Baqarah Vs 199)

And the examples of this are many.

Likewise the Salaf of this Ummah would fear their actions being rejected after their performance, as Allah informs us:

And those who give (in charity) that which they give, with their hearts full of fear (whether their charity has been accepted or not) because they are sure to return to their Lord (for reckoning)”

(Suratul Mu’minūn Vs 60)

Where are such feelings within us as this month comes to an end?

As Ali – Radhiyallahu anhu mentioned:

Be as ardent upon your actions being accepted as you are upon the performance of the action, have you not heard the statement of Allah:

Indeed Allah accepts only from those who are muttaqūn (God-fearing)”

(Suratul Mā’idah Vs 27)

May Allah accept our Fast, our salaah and our righteous actions and grant us a blessed Eid

The salaf and Fasting

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillah

Ammaa ba’d

With this the beginning of this blessed month of Ramadhaan, and this period of good and mercy, We remind of that which the salaf of this umma were upon from fasting and other acts of worship in this month, that it may be a form of encouragement for us this ramadhaan and those that are to come, if Allah blesses us with life.

Abdur Rahmaan Ibn Ahmad Ad Daaraani said:

The key to the dunya is in being full, satiated and content. While the key to the hereafter is in hunger (I.e due to fasting). The origin of good in the dunya and the hereafter is in the fear of Allah. Indeed Allah gives his dunya to those who he loves and those he does not love. Hunger (i.e. fasting and its reward) is a treasure preserved with him, that he does not give except to the one he loves specifically. For me to give up a morsel from my late meal (i.e. due to fasting) is more beloved to me than for me to eat it and stand in prayer from the beginning to the end of the night

(Collected by Abdur Razzaaq As San’aani in Al Musannaf 3/307)

Abu Dardaa said:

If it were not for three things I wish not to remain in the dunya:

1. Placing my face down in prostration to my creator across the alternation of the day and the night, preparing for the (true) life to come

2. Experiencing thirst during the hottest part of the day (due to fasting)

3. And Sitting with a people who select and choose their words (i.e. are careful with their speech) the way fruit is selected

(Collected by As Suyooti in Ad Duril Manthoor 6/648)

Ibn Mas’ood – Radhiyallahu anhu said:

Fasting is a barrier like the barriers used in war

(Collected by Abdur Razaaq As San’aani in his Musanaf 4/307)

Ubaid Ibn Umair said:

It used to be said that when winter comes Oh people of the Qur’aan, the nights are long for your prayers, and the days are short for your fasts, so capitalise!

(Collected by Ibn Abi Shaibah in his Musannaf 7/172)

Upon the authority of Hishaam Ibn Urwa ibn Zubair who said that his father used to fast consistantly except for Eid al Fitr and Eid Al Adhaa and he died while he was fasting!”

(Siyar a’laamin nubalaa 4/436)

Yahya ibn Ma’een said Ghundar (Muhammad ibn Ja’far al Hudhali 293 H) turned to me one day and said “Do you know that for the last fifty years I have fasted one day and broke my fast the next! (referring to the fast of Daawood)”

(Siyar A’laamin Nubalaa 9/101)

Be successful!, Hold your tongue!

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillahi

Ammaa Ba’d:

The following are some texts (some popular, while others may not be so) concerning the virtues of holding the tongue and guarding it. A noble mannerism that is near abandoned in our time, though there is still hope for some…

Upon the Authority of Abu Huraira – Radhiyallahu Anhu – who said the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu Alaihi was Salam said:

Whosoever believes in Allah and the last day then let him say that which is good or remain silent!”

(Agree upon by Bukhaari (5785) and Muslim (47))

Upon the authority oh Al Hasan al Basri who said that the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi Was Salam said:

May Allah have mercy upon a servant who speaks, and thereby gains a profit (ie he uttered something that earned him reward) or remains silent and safe

(collected in musnad As Shihaab (581) and though it is ‘Mursal’ (which is when a taabi’ee narrates from the messenger – Sallallahu alaihi was Salam) it is declared ‘Hasan’ by Shaikh Al albaani in ‘Saheehul Jaami’ (3497) and ‘Saheehah’ (855) (due to supporting ahadeeth))

The following version of the hadeeth brings clarity to this hadeeth:

Upon Ubaadah bin Saamit – Radhiyallahu Anhu that the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi was Salam said:

Speak good and you will gain (reward) and refrain from evil speech and you will be safe

(Musnad As Shihaab (666) and declared Saheeh’ by Shaikh Al Albaani in Saheehul Jaami’ (4419)

Upon the authority of Abdullah Ibn Amr – Radhiyallahu Anhumaa who said that the Messenger of Allah said:

He who remains silent will be successful

(Collected by At Tirmidhi (2501) and declared ‘Saheeh’ by shaikh Al Albaani)

Upon the authority of Simaak who said:

“I said to Jaabir Ibn Samurah ‘Did you used to sit with the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi Was Salam? He said: “Yes! Indeed He used to be given to long periods of silence, and would laugh little. His companions used to mention poetry and would discuss their affairs in his presence and they would laugh and he would probably smile

(Collected by Ahmad in his Musnad (20829) and declared ‘Hasan’ in saheehul Jaami’ (4822))

The following are some of the statements of the Salaf concerning the issue

Talha Ibn Ubaidillah said I happened to embark upon a ship alongside Imaam Ahmad and (I noticed) he had long periods of silence, but when he did speak he said: “Oh Allah cause me to die upon Islaam and the Sunnah!”

(collected by Khateebul Baghdaadi in Taareekhul Baghdaad (9/349))

Upon the authority of Imaam Al Awzaa’ee who said:

Sulaimaan Ibn Daawood alaihis Salaam said: “If speech was made of silver, then silence would be golden!”

(Collected by Ibn Abi dunya in ‘As Samt’ (47))

Muwwarraq Al Ijli – Rahimahullah said: “There is an affair that I have been seeking for ten years that I haven’t achieved yet and I will never leave alone seeking it!” they said: “and what is that Oh Abu Mu’tamir? He said “To remain silent about what does not concern me!”

(Collected by Ibn Abi Shaiba (35144))

Upon the authority of Wuhaib Ibnil Warad – Rahimahullah – who said: “It used to be said that wisdom is in ten parts, nine of them are connected to silence while the tenth is in seclusion from the people

(Collected by Ibn Abi Dunya in ‘As Samt (36))

Upon the authority of Ali – Radhiyallahu Anhu who said: “The tongue of mankind is like the pen of a king and his saliva is its ink

(Collected by Ibn Abi Dunya ‘As Samt’ (79))

Upon the authority of Abdullah ibn Amr – Radhiyallahu anhumaa who said: “Leave alone that which has nothing to do with you whatsoever,and do not speak about what does not concern you, and guard your tongue as you would guard silver!”

(Collected by ibn Abi Dunya in ‘As Samt’ (24))

Upon the authority of Al Hasan al Basri – Rahimahullah who said: “He who is plenty in wealth is plenty in sin (ie usually), and he whos speech is plentiful, lies plentifully and he whose character is bad (only) punishes himself!

(Collected by Ibn Abi Dunya in ‘As Samt’ (9)

Upon the authority of Ibn Mas’ood – Radhiyallahu anhu who said: “By he who there is no god other than him! There is nothing on the earth more in need of being imprisoned than the tongue!”

(Collected by Ibn Abi Dunya in ‘As Samt’ (16))
