Concerning Sajda, An Act Of Worship
In reply to the following statements by S34:
Sajda is an act of worship, if done for Allah(SWT) for
any purpose, cause is Halal and correct...[and] we do not argue for the reasons/causes
for the act rather the act itself.
Therefore Sajda to ALLAH(SWT) is halal for any reason or cause,
I find S34's incoherence here a bit too much.
Is sajda for Allah (SWT) correct without wudu' for example? or in a dirty
place? or opposite to the Qibla for one who knows the Qibla? or towards a
person? or towards a grave?
Is sajda done opposite to the causes spelled out by the Prophet who
said: "Pray as you saw me pray" and opposite to the way of the Sahaba and
the Imams of the Salaf correct??
S34's reply that "sajda... done for Allah (SWT) for any purpose, cause
is Halal and correct," is therefore an invitation to invent your own
religion as you please.
Be warned brothers and sisters that this S34 is proposing the essence
of innovation and the founding-principle of BID`A.
Hadith: - "They will stand at the gates of Hellfire inviting people in."
A few years ago the our Masjid in Long Island, NY, had organized Friday
community iftars during the month of Ramadan which they held in a local
chapter of one of the Christian philantropic clubs such as Lion's. The
hall was filled with life-size statues of Joseph and Mary etc. There was a
group of visiting Tablighis with us. People broke their fast, then Iqama
was raised and we lined up. As I raised my head just before Takbirat
al-Ihram from my spot in the first row I saw a huge wooden crucifix
hanging on the wall in front of all of us, one or two yards from the imam.
No-one raised a peep. They, their women and their children were all going
to make sajda towards that object. Of course I took a step forward, took
it off the wall and placed it on a table without thinking twise about it.
Later I was told: "Brother, our contract stipulates we must touch nothing
and not change anything from its place."
The following is further proof of the danger in S34's method. He said:
But sajda to the graves of Awliya for reasons of respect and love
is Haram and Shirk. The same is making circles around Awliya's graves and asking for Help. The muslims should only make TAWAF around the KABA and
asking help from ALLAH(SWT).
Here S34 has done three things. He has:
1) changed the subject upon which he seems unable to focus.
2) Mixed a correct fatwa (sajda to the graves of Aylia for respect & Love
reasons is Haram) with an incorrect fatwa (sajda to the graves of Aylia
for respect & Love reasons is shirk). It is MA`SIYA, not shirk, S34.
What is shirk, is the blind-following of innovators in making up a new
religion which they call with a flashy name such as "Universal Truth"!
Imam al-Dhahabi said:
"The prostration of the Muslim to the grave of the Prophet is for
the intention of magnification and reverence. One is *not* imputed
disbelief because of it whatsoever (la yukaffaru aslan), but he is being
*disobedient* [to the Prophet's injunction to the Companions]. Let him
therefore be informed that this is forbidden. Similarly in the case of one
who prays towards the grave." Mu`jam al-Shuyukh (1:73).
3) S34 has *attributed shirk to the Sahaba* wal-`iyadhu billah.
Bilal ibn al-Harth (RA) asked the Prophet for help from the Prophet
by coming at his grave (Ibn Abi Shayba with a sahih chain according
to al-Bayhaqi, Ibn Hajar, and Ibn Kathir); and the Mother of the Believers
advised the people to make istisqa' by making an opening over the Noble
Grave (al-Darimi, sahih according to Mamduh in Raf` al-Minara). These are
proofs from the Sahaba for permissibility of TAWASSUL through the Awliya'.
Qadi `Iyad said in al-Shifa: "Disparaging the Sahaba is haram, and the one
who does it is cursed."
In conclusion, S34 has answered a simple question by proposing new
rulings for a new religion, then he compounded this by making grave
statements proving there is fear he himself has gone beyond innovation and
into a graver region. Our refuge is Allah.
What advice can S34 possibly give others when he cannot answer a simple
question without committing grave mistakes and even KABA'IR or worse in
attributing kufr to the Companions of the Prophet ?
[from signature:]"Universal Truth"
And when will he stop taking the readers for idiots with such a signature?
May Allah never make your untruths universal but confine them where they

reply for question on Sajda (Elusivism)
Syed34 wants to define his bid`a and tell people to stay away from it yet
he is unable or unwilling to come out and say if a specific act I asked
him about, is a bid`a or not. I believe he has no idea. Now he tells me
that if I ask him such a question, it is like the Iraelites arguing with
Allah Subhan wa Ta`ala!
This is not the first time someone on this and other forums insists that
they are "guiding the Umma" yet displays misguided manners and less
knowledge. If you were to ask them what are the necessary conditions of
wudu' as opposed to its obligations they could not answer you. They do not
know how to clean themselves after going to the toilet, but they do know
how to attribute to Muslims "rituals borrowed from Budhaism" and compare
them to the disbelievers of the Bani Isra'il. Subhan Allah `amma yasifun.
As I said in another reply to one of his brothers:
Imam al-Shafi`i reportedly said that if he were to debate 40 Ulema he
would defeat them but if one ignoramus were to debate him, the ignoramus
would defeat him. This is because an ignoramus will never accept proofs
but keeps on arguing and arguing. There is little to do with them except
send them on their way and there is no respect whatsoever for them or
their opinions, "Islamic" or otherwise.

Open Letter to Aqeeb farid (Brailviism)
But, my fellow muslims, what I strongly believe, that we will never
become true muslims until our lives copies 100% the lives of the
Noble Sahabas in every aspect of our daily living.
What is your proof for such a statement? Are you making up a Sixth Pillar
Every act of worship is
in Hell which has not being done by the Prophet
and the Noble Sahaba.
Suppose a person makes sajda for Allah suddenly, without reason, such as
was never done by the Prophet and the Sahaba. Is this act of
worship in the Fire or will it be accepted by Allah?
