Miftah-ul-Janna (Booklet for way to Paradise)

Allâhu ta’âlâ

Allâhu ta’âlâ ‘father’ becomes a kâfir.] If a person says, “Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ would lick his blessed finger after eating,” and another person says that it is ill-mannered behaviour to do so, the latter becomes a kâfir. If a person says, “Rizq (food) comes from Allâhu ta’âlâ, yet the qul’s, (i.e. born slave’s,) motion is necessary, too,” his statement is an act of polytheism. For, man’s movements also are created by Allâhu ta’âlâ. If a person says that it is better to be a Nasrânî than being a Jew, [or that being an American kâfir is better than being a communist,] he becomes a kâfir. One should rather say, for instance, that a Jew is worse than a Nasrânî or [that a communist is more wicked] than a Christian. If a person says that being a kâfir is preferable to treachery, he becomes a kâfir. If a person says, “What is my business in an assembly of ’ilm (knowledge),” or “Who could ever do what ’ulama (Islamic scholars) say,” or throws a (written) fatwâ down to the ground or says, “Words of religious people are no good,” he becomes a kâfir. If a person says to someone with whom he has a dispute, “Let’s apply to the Shar’ (Islamic court),” and the latter replies, “I won’t go there unless the police take me,” or “How do I know Islam,” the latter becomes a kâfir. If a person says something that causes kufr, (he) and also anyone who laughs at it become kâfirs. The latter’s laugh will not be kufr if it has been darûrî (inevitable, involuntary, ineluctable). If a person says, “There is no [empty] space unoccupied by Allah,” or “Allâhu ta’âlâ is in heaven,” he becomes a kâfir, according to Islamic scholars. A person who says that souls of the meshâikh are always present and they know, becomes a kâfir. It will not be kufr to say that they will be present. A person who says, “I do not know (or want) Islam,” becomes a kâfir. If a person says, “If ’Âdam ‘’alaihis-salâm’ had not eaten wheat, we would not have become shaqîs (sinners, evil-doers),” he becomes a kâfir. However, Islamic scholars are not unanimous on his kufr if he says, “... we would not be on the earth now.” If a person says that ’Âdam ‘’alaihis-salâm’ would weave cloth – 52 –

and another person says, “Then we are sons of a weaver,” the latter becomes a kâfir. If a person commits a venial sin and says to a person who tells him to make tawba, “What sin have I committed to make a tawba for,” he becomes a kâfir. If a person says to another, “Come along, let’s go to an Islamic scholar,” or “Let’s read books of Fiqh and ’Ilm-i-hâl and learn,” and the latter replies, “What is my business with ’ilm (knowledge),” the latter becomes a kâfir. For, (in effect) it means contempt for ’ilm. A person who insults, despises, or discredits books of Tafsîr and/or Fiqh, becomes a kâfir. Implacable kâfirs who attack these valuable books written by scholars of one of the four Madhhabs, are called ‘sham scientists’ or ‘zindiqs’. If a person does not know how to answer questions such as, “Whose progeny are you?”, “Whose millat do you belong to?”, “Who is the Imâm of your Madhhab in i’tiqâd?” and “Who is the Imâm of your Madhhab in ’amal (acts of worship)?”, he becomes a kâfir. As has been stated by Islamic scholars, if a person says, “Halâl,” about a harâm-i-qat’iyya (something that is definitely harâm) –such as wine and pork–, or says, “harâm,” about a halâli-qat’iyya (something that is definitely halâl), he becomes a kâfir. [It is dangerous to say that tobacco is harâm.] [1] It is kufr to wish that a certain harâm act were made halâl if that act has been made harâm (prohibited) in all religions (dispensations) and if it would have been contradictory to hikmat to make that thing halâl. Examples of this are fornication, sodomy, eating after having been satiated with food, and taking and giving interest. It is not kufr to wish that wine were made halâl. For, wine was not harâm in all (the past) dispensations. It is kufr to make use of the Qur’ân al-kerîm amidst words and jokes. If a person says to someone named Yahyâ, “Yâ Yahyâ! Huz-il-kitâba,” he becomes a kâfir. For, he has made fun of the Qur’ân al-kerîm. The same rule applies to reading (or reciting) the Qur’ân al-kerîm to the accompaniment musical instruments or amidst dances or songs. It is âfet [2] to say, “I have just arrived, Bismillâhi.” If a person [1] The fourth chapter of the sixth fascicle of Endless Bliss enlarges on tobacco and tobacco-smoking. [2] Âfât is the plural form of âfet, whose lexical meaning is disaster, catastrophe, perdition. – 53 –
