            Al-Qualitya!

            67. Ahadiyah:
            They believe in the Fardh (obligations) in faith but deny the Sunnah.

            Peace of Allah be with u

            In reference to above, i only concentrate my fard prayers as i want to concentrate in Allah alone. It is not that i am denying sunnah but i want quality prayer rather than quantity.

            To me its like when ur eating a plate of briyani and u really concentrate its fragrance, its succulent lamb, its aromatic rice and its overall taste. Simply eating. Can i approach to remember Allah like this? In the process i may want not to spend my time in sunnah prayers as it will make me defocus on Allah ...or am i in the 74 group of Al-Qualitiyyah?

              islam in china

              hi Shaolin's, i posted an article in the...

              <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0><TBODY><TR vAlign=bottom><TD width="100%">Current Events </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
              <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0><TBODY><TR vAlign=bottom><TD width="100%"></TD></TR><TR><TD class=navbar style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; PADDING-TOP: 1px" colSpan=3>UNPO, East Turkestan: "Practicing Islam in Today's China" </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

              (sorry i dun know how to paste the link yet....:-P)

              portion i am interested in is...

              "The Uighurs and the Hui, China's dominant Muslim groups, have distinct ethnic, cultural, and historical backgrounds, and Chinese authorities treat the two groups differently. The Uighurs, who are of Turkic descent, face harsh religious restrictions and repression, since Chinese authorities associate the group with separatism and terrorism in western China. The Hui, who are related ethnically to the Han Chinese majority, enjoy greater freedom to practice Islam than Uighur Muslims."

              since your name is relating to chinese, i was wondering if you could help me know more about...????

              1) the history of the 2 groups (ie. Uighursa and the Hui)and islam in china, could you recommend some sound reading on this?
              2) and do they belong to any sects mentioned above?

              Peace.

              Thank you in advance.

                Shaolin,

                Are you sure about this statement about Qadiani's. My understanding is that they DO NOT accept that Prophet Mohammed was the last prophet, and as such are outside of our faith.

                And there is no requirement to exchange information about sects between muslims. There is no evidence to support this, it is an utterly baseless statement. As muslims, we are the brothers and sisters of other muslims, irrespective of what fiqh we follow. That is the message we should be sending out. Islam encourages tolerance among the believers and the non-believers.

                Finally, I do not see any value addition in your post of 73 sects: you are opening the gates for division and I believe this is not in the spirit of this forum.

                  73 Sects

                  There is a famous hadth where the Prophet (peace be upon him) says: My community will experience everything that the Children of Israel had experienced, following in their footsteps exactly, so much so that if one of their number had approached his mother publicly for sex, one of my community will do the same. The Children of Israel divided into 72 sects. My community will divide into 73 sects, and all of them will be in the Hellfire save one.

                  The people asked him: And which one will that be?

                  He replied: The one that follows what I and my Companions are upon right now.

                  This hadth is mentioned all of the time. In fact, scarcely does anyone speak on the topic of disagreement without mentioning it. This hadth is often mentioned inappropriately and to audiences who cannot fully appreciate its implications. Therefore, I wish to discuss this hadth and elucidate more clearly what it is telling us.

                  This hadth is not recorded in either Sahh al-Bukhr or Sahh Muslim. This by no means implies that the hadth is unauthentic. However, it is possible that they did not mention it because it was not up to their arduous standards of authenticity.

                  The hadth can be found in the four Sunan works and in Musnad Ahmad with different chains of transmission. Some scholars declared it to be authentic or at least good, including al-Tirmidh, al-Hkim, al-Dhahab, Ibn Taymiyah, al-Shtib, and Ibn Hajar al-`Asqaln. Others declared it as weak, including ibn Hazm and Ibn al-Wazr.

                  The most correct opinion is that it is authentic; taking into consideration the large number of ways it has reached us, with some chains of transmission strengthening the deficiencies of others. Nevertheless, we should not behave as if it is the only hadth in the world that addresses the issue of difference among Muslims.

                  We have the hadth where the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: This community of mine is a community blessed with mercy. It is not punished in the Hereafter. Instead, it is punished in this world with strife, instability, and bloodshed. [Musnad Ahmad, Sunan Ab Dwd, and Mustadrak al-Hkim] It is an authentic hadth. It indicates that Allah has shown mercy on the Islamic community and that its punishment will be in this world instead of the Hereafter.

                  The Muslim community is the community most highly esteemed by Allah. The Qurn and Sunnah both state this fact in the most unambiguous terms. It is better than the communities that followed the previous scriptures were in their own era, namely the Jews and the Christians. This is why Allah says: You are the best community brought forth for humanity. [Srah l-`Imrn: 110] and: And likewise we made you a balanced nation. [Srah al-Baqarah: 143]

                  The Prophet (peace be upon him) on so many occasions emphasized the fact that the Muslim community is the best community of faith on Earth. Therefore, no one should ever infer from the hadth about the 73 sects that the previous communities of faith were less divided amongst themselves and therefore were somehow better or less afflicted.

                  Ibn Mas`d relates that he was with some people when the Prophet (peace be upon him) asked them: Would you like to be one quarter of the population of Paradise? When they replied that they would indeed like that, the Prophet (peace be upon him) asked them: Would you like to be one third of the population of Paradise? When they replied that they would indeed like that, the Prophet (peace be upon him) asked them: Would you like to be one half of the population of Paradise? When they replied that they would indeed like that, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: I swear by Him in whose hand is Muhammads soul. Indeed, I hope that you will be half the population of Paradise. This is because none shall enter Paradise except a soul that has surrendered to Allah, and you are to the polytheists like a single white hair on the hide of a black bull or a single black hair on the hide of a red bull. [Sahh al-Bukhr and Sahh Muslim]

                  In this hadth, the Prophet (peace be upon him) made it clear that half of the denizens of paradise will be from among his followers.

                  Allah has forgiven this community what it falls into by mistake or out of forgetfulness. We are instructed by the Qurn to offer the following supplication: Our Lord, do not impose blame on us if we forget or err. [Srah al-Baqarah: 286] The prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah has pardoned my community what it commits by mistake, out of forgetfulness, or out of compulsion. This is an indisputable principle of Islamic jurisprudence recognized by all scholars and jurists.

                  Moreover, Allah has spared this community from the burdens and impositions that the previous religious communities had upon them. Allah says: He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. [Srah al-A`rf: 157]

                  Returning to the hadth about the 73 sects, the fact that the Muslims will divide into a larger number of sects has puzzled some scholars throughout the ages. However, there are a number of possible answers to this puzzle.

                  First of all, the Muslim era is the longest era for any religious community.

                  Secondly, the divisions within the Muslim community are by far less serious that the divisions suffered by those who have gone before. The deficiencies brought about by the divisions among Muslims are more than counterbalanced by the good and the favor that the Muslims possess. Moreover, the existence of a sect does not require that the sect has many followers. One person following his own ideas can constitute a sect. Therefore, it is quite possible for there to be 72 other sects that collectively constitute a small percentage of the entire Muslim community.

                  The real problem exists with those who fancy themselves as the saved sect to the exclusion of all others, declaring everyone else to be astray and damning them. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If a man says that the people are damned, then he is the damnedest of them all.

                  We must bear in mind that the Prophet (peace eb upon him) described those other 72 sects as Muslims. He said: My community will divide into 73 sects. This means that the followers of those sects are neither unbelievers nor polytheists. They are, in general, Muslims and believers. This does not mean that there cannot be a few hypocrites and unbelievers among them. However, the overwhelming majority of them believe, in spite of their deviance and their shortcomings. This is the way that most of the scholars have understood the hadth of the 73 sects, including Ibn Taymiyah and al-Shtib.

                  The threat of the Hellfire mentioned in the hadth does not mean that the threat is going to be carried out against everyone. Ibn Taymiyah makes the following observation:
                  This hadth is no graver in its threat than the verse: Verily, those who consume the orphans property unjustly merely take fire into their bellies and they shall be scorched by a blazing flame. [Srah al-Nis:10]

                  It is no graver than the verse:
                  Whoever does this maliciously and wrongly We shall scorch in the Fire. [Srah al-Nis: 30]

                  In spite of these verses, we do not bear witness that specific people are going to Hell, since people may repent for their sins or they may have other good deeds to their credit that blot out their sins. Allah may expiate them for their wrongs by afflicting them with hardships or by other means.


                  It was not the practice of our pious predecessors to concern themselves with identifying these sects. Al-Shtib makes this point clear in his book al-Muwfaqt. Ibn Taymiyah also states this in a number of his works. He says:
                  Anyone from one of the 72 other sects who is a hypocrite is indeed an unbeliever in his heart. Anyone form among them who is not a hypocrite but who in fact believes in Allah and His Messenger is not an unbeliever, regardless of whatever mistakes in interpretation they may have. When a believer says: Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who have preceded us in faith [from Srah al-Hashr: 10], he means all the Muslims of the past centuries, even those who made mistakes in interpretation, acted contrary to the Sunnah, or committed some sins. They are still from his brothers who preceded him in faith and they all come under the generality of his supplication, even if they had belonged to one f the 72 other sects. Each one of these sects contains within its ranks a large number of people who are not unbelievers. They are believers who have gone somewhat astray and have sinned, making them worthy of the threat of punishment.

                  This hadth should be seen in the proper perspective. Though we might view it as authentic, we should not extend its meaning beyond what it actually says. We should not allow this hadth to be used to aggravate divisions between Muslims and stir up arguments among believers.

                    Peace of Allah be with u

                    In reference to above, i only concentrate my fard prayers as i want to concentrate in Allah alone. It is not that i am denying sunnah but i want quality prayer rather than quantity.

                    To me its like when ur eating a plate of briyani and u really concentrate its fragrance, its succulent lamb, its aromatic rice and its overall taste. Simply eating. Can i approach to remember Allah like this? In the process i may want not to spend my time in sunnah prayers as it will make me defocus on Allah ...or am i in the 74 group of Al-Qualitiyyah?
                    Gazzali
                    Insha'allah when you have got the quality, you can then start building on the quantity.

                    You want your scales to be heavy on that day, if you are not doing your sunnah what else can you be doing to make those scales heavy.

                    We all just need to remember Allah in everything we do and to do it for his reward and his mercy.
                    Quran and sunnah go together you can focus on both to please Allah and get quality.
                    Its about how you are and how you think. Somtimes we are lazy to think for too long about doing things for the sake of allah. So we cut it short and say i am only doing my fards, buts its all about pushing ourselves out of bad habits and thinking about silly things and rushing around to get back to what ever it was we where doing.
                    With rememberance of Allah in your mind and heart the action of sunnah will also be quality and way heavy on your scales.

                    May Allah shower his mercy on us all Ameen.

                      Hello Rizi Wizi,

                      Are you sure about this statement about Qadiani's. My understanding is that they DO NOT accept that Prophet Mohammed was the last prophet, and as such are outside of our faith.

                      I just realised that now.



                      Finally, I do not see any value addition in your post of 73 sects: you are opening the gates for division and I believe this is not in the spirit of this forum.

                      I was just merely posting something which I found of interest.

                          (sorry i dun know how to paste the link yet....:-P)

                          portion i am interested in is...

                          "The Uighurs and the Hui, China's dominant Muslim groups, have distinct ethnic, cultural, and historical backgrounds, and Chinese authorities treat the two groups differently. The Uighurs, who are of Turkic descent, face harsh religious restrictions and repression, since Chinese authorities associate the group with separatism and terrorism in western China. The Hui, who are related ethnically to the Han Chinese majority, enjoy greater freedom to practice Islam than Uighur Muslims."

                          since your name is relating to chinese, i was wondering if you could help me know more about...????

                          1) the history of the 2 groups (ie. Uighursa and the Hui)and islam in china, could you recommend some sound reading on this?
                          2) and do they belong to any sects mentioned above?

                          Peace.

                          Thank you in advance.

                            What sect do you follow?
                            The majority of those aren't sects of Islam but rather offshoots of Islam. Anyone who holds a beleif outside the Islamic A'qeeda is simply not a moslem. The only two sects of Islam are Sunni and Shiia . All the others are basically offshoots and unislamic.
                            Don't forget that Sikhism is basically also an offshoot of Islam, a cross between Islam and Hinduism. A lot of the above are no different than that.
