parents. When she

parents. When she reaches puberty she will no longer be dependent on her parents’ religion. When she reaches puberty in a state of nescience in Islam, she becomes a murtadd. If a person who does not believe the tenets of Islam although he has heard them utters the Kalima-i-tawhîd, i.e. if he says, “Lâ ilâha il-l-Allah Muhammadun Rasûlullah,” he will not become a Muslim. A person who believes the six tenets expressed in the credo that reads; “Âmentu billâhi...” and who says, “I accept the commands and prohibitions of Allâhu ta’âlâ,” is a Muslim. Hence, each and every Muslim must have their children memorize (the six tenets of Islamic credo in) the expression, “Âmentu billâhi wa Melâikatihi wa Kutubihi wa Rusulihi wa-l-Yawm-il-âkhiri wa bi-l-Qadari khayrihi wa sherrihi min-Allâhi ta’âlâ wa-l-bâ’s-u-ba’d-al-mawt haqqun Esh-hadu-an-Lâ ilâha il-l-Allah wa Esh-hadu-anna Muhammadan ’abduhu wa rasûluhu,” and teach them its meaning well. If a child does not believe these six tenets or one of Islam’s commandments and prohibitions and does not say that it believes them, it becomes a murtadd, and not a Muslim, when it reaches puberty. Detailed information on these six tenets is available from the book entitled Belief and Islam, (one of the publications of Hakîkat Kitâbevi in Istanbul.) Every Muslim should read that book, have heir children as well read it, thereby consolidating their îmân, and do their best so that all their acquaintances as well read it. Accordingly, we should take utmost care so that our children should not be raised as murtadds. In the early stages of childhood, we should teach them îmân, Islam, ’abdest (ablution), ghusl, and namâz! [1] Parents’ primary duty is to raise their children as Muslims. It is stated as follows in the book entitled Durer wa Ghurer: [2] “A man who has become a murtadd must be told to become a Muslim. His doubts must be clarified and eliminated. If he asks for a term of respite, He will be kept in prison for three days. If he makes tawba, (i.e. repents for his grave sin and begs Allâhu ta’âlâ for forgiveness, promising Him that he shall never commit that gravest sin,) his tawba will be accepted. If he does not make tawba, then he will be put to death by the (Muslim) judge. A woman who becomes a murtadd will not be killed. She will be imprisoned and [1] The fourth fascicle of Endless Bliss, one of the publications of Hakîkat Kitâbevi, enlarges on these teachings. [2] Written by Muhammad Molla Husraw ‘rahmatullâhi ta’âlâ ’alaih’, the third Ottoman Shaikh-ul-islâm. – 12 –

kept in prison until she becomes a Muslim. If she flees to the dârul-harb, she will not be a jâriya as long as she is in the dâr-ul-harb. If she is captured she will become a jâriya. When she becomes a murtadd her nikâh will become null and void. All her property will get out of her possession, (i.e. it will no longer be her property.) It will be her property again if she becomes a Muslim again. When she dies or flees to the dâr-ul-harb [or becomes a murtadd as she is in the dâr-ul-harb], her property will become her inheritors’ legacy. [If she has no inheritors, the property will be inherited by people who have rightful shares from the Beytulmâl.] [1] A murtadd cannot inherit property from another murtadd. Property earned by a murtadd as he (or she) is a murtadd will not be his (or her) property. It will be fey for Muslims. (Fey is defined in a subchapter headlined THE DISBELIEVER’S MARRIAGE and appended to the twelfth chapter of the fifth fascicle of Endless Bliss.) All her social transactions such as buying and selling, rental agreements, and gift-givings, will become bâtil. (Please see the thirty-first chapter of the fifth fascicle of Endless Bliss for ‘bâtil’. They will return to their former state and become sahîh if she becomes a Muslim again. She will not have to make qadâ of her former acts of worship, with the exception of hajj, which she will have to perform again.” The first three acts of worship that a new Believer has to learn how to perform are to make an ablution, to make ghusl, and to perform namâz. The six essential tenets of îmân are: To believe that Allâhu ta’âlâ exists and is One, and (to believe) His Attributes; to have îmân in, (i.e. to believe,) Angels, Prophets, Heavenly Books, events that will happen in the Hereafter; Qadâ and Qadar. Later on, we shall explain each and every one of them separately. In short, we must observe Islam’s commandments and prohibitions both with heart and physically, and our hearts should be on the alert lest they should sink into ghafla (oblivion, unawareness, lethargy, torpor). If a person’s heart is not vigilant, [that is, if he does not keep in mind the existence and greatness of Allâhu ta’âlâ and the flavour of the blessings in Paradise and the vehemence of Hell fire,] it will be very hard for that person’s body to adapt itself to Islam. Scholars of (the Islamic science called) Fiqh (and which teaches Islam’s commandments and prohibitions) convey fatwâs, (i.e. answers provided by authorized Islamic [1] Please see the first chapter of the fifth fascicle of Endless Bliss. – 13 –
