The Dust will Never Settle Down : Anwar al Awlaki On-Line

The Dust will Never Settle Down

May 27, 2008 - الثلاثاء 23 جمادى الأولى 1429 by admin  
Filed under New Lectures

There has been recently an increase of unacceptable behavior from the kuffar towards our beloved Prophet. So what is the ruling of sharia on such incidents and how did the Sahaba deal with such people and what do our scholars say about them. About this and more Imam Anwar will deliver a talk titled: “The Dust will Never Settle Down”. Allaah will suffice His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) against the criminals who mock him. He says (interpretation of the meaning): “For he who hates you (O Muhammad), he will be cut off (from posterity and every good thing in this world and in the Hereafter)” [al-Kawthar 108:3] i.e., he is scorned and humiliated and cut off from all that is good. When the Muslims besieged a stronghold and its people resisted, then they heard them mocking and reviling the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), they would sense that victory was at hand, and it would only be a short time before Allaah granted them victory, to avenge His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Al-Saarim al-Maslool (p. 116-117).

    Assalamu Alaikum
    Jazakallhu Kairan for all the efforts that you are taking to educate this ummah at a time of confusion. May Allah reward you and protect you from all the evil. Ya Sheik, could you inform us the time and the room in the paltalk where we can listen to your lectures..please.
    Jazakallhu Kairan

    A’Alkm Br Anwar,
    Br in this lecture when you said “we must transport ourselves to their society (Campanions RA)and put ourselves in their shoes and try to think the way they used to think and to try to understand the circumstances…”
    Brother these words brought tears into my eyes.
    Regardless of the distance, our hearts, thoughts and duah are with you and Muslims who are going through oppresion. We are Muslims, We are one body.
    May Allah give us ability to convert our words into actions.
    Jazakallah Khairun.

    Salam, some scholars says when prophet mohammad (sal) was in Mecca people came and drop dirty on him while he praying and other bad activities by Kuffar. But he didn’t take any action. what is the response to that?

  4. anwarNo Gravatar says:

    Br Muhammad,
    The response to your question is that when Rasulullah was in Makkah he was ordered to not take any action against them. In Madinah that changed and it is in Madinah that the orders of Sharia were finalized and it is the final orders of sharia that are binding on us.

  5. abuHasanNo Gravatar says:

    Salaam beautiful talk ya sheikh.
    The hukm of talking bad of the prophet is death, but can you clarify as i have understood, is that we need a islamic state, where if one did such act, as defend the prophet, he could fall back on the muslim state. Meaning the repurcussion could be handled better. From such an act.
    As in the case kab ibn ashraf with Muhamad ibn maslamah.
    May Allah reward you immensely. For speaking the Haq, and not hiding under polital correctness.

    asalamalaykum brother.i have benefited alot from your lectures and i made alot of dua for you in my umrah pilgrimage when i heard you was in prison.i request you brother to remember me in your duas also without forgetting and keep spaeking the haq .

  7. Abu AbdullahNo Gravatar says:

    asalamalaykum, How are you? Brother, can we take any action against who write or say bad things about Rasulullah(saw) even Islamic State hasn’t established? if answer is Yes, whats daleel?

  8. Ismail IbrahimNo Gravatar says:

    Assalamu Alaikum, May all blessu you and protect you all the time. I am from south India, It was very accidental i happened to see a cd about Hazrat Umar AlKhattab after that i am always looking for your news. Allay may bless you.

  9. KhaledNo Gravatar says:

    assalamu alaikum brother. Slightly confused. You said that the prophet sws ordered the killing of a list of names specifically once he entred mecca. In your talk you mentioned the names abdullah ibn khattl and his two ’singing’ slave girls (ansara moulaat and abi lahab) and the slave girl of abu lahab.Now, what confuses me is that the slave girls of both abdullah ibn khattl and abu lahab were slandering the prophet and spreading propaganda about him against their free will – they were scared of being persecuted by them and because of this they did what they were told to do. Now, my question is, how could the prophet order capital punishment on them knowing that they did it agianst their will? This begs the question – how could this be justice???(I thought we were the religion of ultimate justice???). Brother perhaps I have misunderstood what you said in your talk. Can you please clarify this. Jazakallah khair.

    Assalam Alaikum Shaikh….Masha Allah really a good one in perfect time…….

    Shaikh i just want to see you, how and where can i meet.

  11. anwarNo Gravatar says:

    To Khalid,
    We don’t know whether they were forced to sing against the Prophet or not. Most likely they were instructed to do so and did it willingly. There is no sign that they were coerced into doing it. If they were coerced then it would have been a different situation.
    Eventually only one of the three was executed and Rasulullah accepted the Islam of the rest.

  12. khaledNo Gravatar says:

    Jazakallah khair brother anwar for responding to my questions as quickly as you did. I have so far heard a number of your talks and hamdullilah I found it very educational. What I like about your talks is that you speak in a common english language that is understandable for all types of english speaking audiances. I personally do not like it when speakers try to use ‘big’ and difficult english when they speak because it is very hard to understand. I just want to say can you keep giving your talks the way you are doing it now all the time because mashallah its fantastic. One more question. There are so many muslim groups out there (im not talking about sects but groups)like the jamat-e-islam,hizb tahrir,islamic forum europe etc etc.Who do I join? and how do I know that I am joining the correct group? – you might say find out about the groups first, but the thing with that is that it will take a long time to no exactly what each group is about because they have a lot of literature to read?

  13. KhaledNo Gravatar says:

    To brother Anwar,
    There is another part in this talk that I am confused about. The part of the talk relating to the blind man who kills his ‘umm wallad’ because she used to curse the prophet sws. How coud the prophet come to a judgement and accept the mans reasoning behind why he killed the lady when there was no witness of the murder? How could he be sure without a witness that the man was telling the truth – that she really was blaspheming about the prophet?

    Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

    I’d like to give a comment to Muhammad on June 10th, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    And this is to the same time a question to Anwar.

    Weren’t these evil people who dumped the filth over Rasulullah saw killed by sword during the Battle of Badr?

  23. MuhsinmuttaqiNo Gravatar says:

    Assalamu Alaykum

    It is possible that whenever the Prophet forgive any insults against himself then he was given the choice to either forgive or not, but in cases where he was strict there was not choice?

    If rumors are spread through art, media and other forms it is much worse than if someone says something on his own.

    They killed rumorists made their insults public and they were the cause of alot of harm for the hole society.

  24. Abdullah SaifNo Gravatar says:

    Asalamu alaikum ustadh,

    I give you salam from birmingham, UK. I am a regular at the Muath welfare trust (Amanat Muath Alkhairiyah) where im sure you remember that you delievered a few khutbahs from there.

    Ive just downloaded this talk, and i doubt i’ll be dissappointed. but i have a question:

    Is there anything written about the sahabah that lived in Al-Habasha? I understand that they lived there for 15 yrs, yet ive never heard anuthin besides the famous story when they spoke to Annajashi (RA). Their example would be greatly valued by us muslims living as a minority in these times.

    barakAllahu Feek.

    Salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

    Hmmm, the above comment looks like hebrew. Someone should delete it, insha’ Allah, I think.

    Anyhow, jazakAllah khair kateer for speaking the haqq, always, with taqwa and no fear of the creation.

    ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased with them, reported:
    Allah’s Messenger said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, perform the Prayer, and pay Zakah. If they do that, their blood and property are guaranteed protection on my behalf except when justified by law, and their affairs rest with Allah.

    حدثنا ‏ ‏أبو غسان المسمعى مالك بن عبد الواحد ‏ ‏حدثنا ‏ ‏عبد الملك بن الصباح ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏شعبة ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏واقد بن محمد بن زيد بن عبد الله بن عمر ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏أبيه ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏عبد الله بن عمر ‏ ‏قال ‏
    ‏قال رسول الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏أمرت أن أقاتل الناس حتى يشهدوا أن لا إله إلا الله وأن ‏ ‏محمدا رسول الله ‏ ‏ويقيموا الصلاة ويؤتوا الزكاة فإذا فعلوا ‏ ‏عصموا ‏ ‏مني دماءهم وأموالهم إلا بحقها وحسابهم على الله ‏

    Keep speaking the haqq, shaykhana. May the Haqq be with us, ameen.

    To Brother Khalid


    I have read your questions regarding the actions taken by Messenger of Allah SAW. Brother I can only say that it is part of faith that you do not question the actions of Prophet of Allah SWT. It is because Prophets of Allah SWT do not do or act on their own. Atleast Hazrat Muhammad May Peace Be Upon Him never acted on his own nor spoke on his own. He was Devinely Guided and therefore his steps even if not understood these can not be challenged. Hope and pray that I am right Allah Willing.
