which) causes haraj, you will be absolved from having to do that farz. 2– When there is not a darûrat in doing something that causes haraj, [e.g. fingernail polish,] or there is a darûrat and also a few ways of doing that thing and you choose the way that entails haraj, the act of worship that you do (in the way that entails haraj) will not be sahîh. You have to perform that farz by utilizing the way without haraj. That another Madhhab should be imitated in case of haraj, hardship, (i.e. if you choose the way that entails haraj,) regardless of whether or not there is a darûrat, is written in books entitled Fatâwa-l-hadîthiyya (written by Ibn-i-Hajar-i-Mekkî ‘rahmatullâhi ’alaih’, 899 [1494 A.D.] – 974 , Mekka,) and Khulâsa-t-ut-tahqîq (by ’Abd-ul-Ghanî Nablusî ‘rahmatullâhi ’alaih’, 1050 [1640 A.D.], Damuscus – 1143 ,) in Tahtâwî’s ‘rahima-hullâhu ta’âlâ’ annotation to Sherblâlî’s ‘rahimuhullâhu ta’âlâ’ book entitled Merâq-il-felâh, and in the book entitled Ma’fuwât by Halîl Es’irdî ‘rahima-hullâhu ta’âlâ’. Molla Halîl (Es’irdî) passed away in 1259 [1843 A.D.]. A Hanafî Muslim who wants to have his aching or rotten tooth filled or crowned instead of having it extracted and replaced with a removable prosthesis or a set of teeth furnished with a palate will have to imitate the Shâfi’î or Mâlikî Madhhab as he makes a ghusl. For, it is not farz in these two Madhhabs to wash one’s mouth and nostrils when making a ghusl. And it is quite easy to imitate the Shâfi’î or Mâlikî Madhhab. You will have to make niyyat, i.e. pass through your heart, that you are imitating the Shâfi’î or Mâlikî Madhhab when making a ghusl or an ablution and when beginning to perform namâz or, if you forget, after performing namâz or when you remember to do so. In that case, the ablution and the ghusl that you make and the namâz that you perform will have to be sahîh (valîd, sound) according to the Shâfi’î or Mâlikî Madhhab. For them to be sahîh according to the Shâfi’î Madhhab, you will have to renew your ablution when your skin touches the skin of a woman other than the eighteen women who are eternally harâm for you to make nikâh with  and when the palm of your hand touches your own qaba awrat, (i.e. the pubic or anal area of your own body,) and recite the Fâtiha Sûra inwardly when you perform namâz (in jamâ’at) conducted by an imâm.

e done when imitating the Mâlikî Madhhab! To imitate another Madhhab does not mean to change your Madhhab. A Hanafî Muslim who imitates another Madhhab has not gone out of the Hanafî Madhhab. He adapts himself to that Madhhab only in farzes and mufsids. He observes the rules of his own Madhhab in wâjibs, makrûhs, and sunnats. With the statements made by scholars of Fiqh concerning ghusl are still there, attempts are being heard to solve the question of teeth with the writings of incompetent people who do not even belong to a certain Madhhab. They say that it has been stated in a fatwâ written in the 1332 [1913 A.D.] issue of the periodical entitled Sebîl-ur-rashâd that it is permissible to have a tooth filled. We would like to say first of all that the so-called periodical is beset with articles written by reformers and other people without a certain Madhhab. One of its writers, namely Ismâ’îl Hakki of Manastir (Bitola), is an insidious freemason. Another one, Ismâ’îl Hakki of Izmir, is ahead of all those idiots who were misguided by Mehmet Abduh, the masonic mufti of Cairo and a reformer of Islam. He received high school education in Izmir and finished teachers’ training school in Istanbul. He has a weak religious education and little religious knowledge. Ingratiating himself with members of Union Party, he became a madrasa teacher and tried to spread Abduh’s reformist and subversive ideas. The eulogy that Ismâ’îl Hakki wrote for the book entitled Telfîq-i-madhâhib, a translation from Rashîd Ridâ of Egypt and rendered by Ahmed Hamdi Akseki, one of his disciples victimized by his venomous subterfuges, betrays his inner malice. This very Ismâ’îl Hakki in the aforesaid periodical enlarged on the conflicting arguments among the scholars of Fiqh concerning whether it is permissible to tie the teeth with a gold wire and, putting forth the books, e.g. the commentary to (Muhammad Sheybânî’s book entitled) Siyar-i-kebîr, which inform about the consensus of scholars on that there is a darûrat in tying the teeth with a gold wire instead of a silver one, concluded that the matter concerning the teeth is a darûrat. However, the question he had been asked was whether ghusl made by a person with a filled or crowned tooth would be sahîh, rather than whether teeth should be tied with gold or silver. Writing a long and detailed discourse on something not asked about and which was commonly known, Ismâ’îl Hakki of Izmir wrote his conclusion as an answer to the real question. What he did is sheer falsification in knowledge. It is an attempt to write one’s own opinion in disguise of a fatwâ given – 71 –

ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY
This book is written in the nature of a “key” for those Muslim brothers of ours who have just a smattering of knowledge on how the Islamic religion has developed, and it has been written for those non-Muslims willing to know the fundamentals of Islam. Islam, the most up-to-date and the most immaculate of the world’s existing religions, is based upon very humane and very logical principles. Without going into details, this book touches upon the fundamentals of Islam and makes a comparison of Islam with other religions. It answers criticisms raised against Islam by its adversaries and explains as compendiously as possible the qualifications essential for being a good Muslim.
For those who would like to read valuable books on Islam written by Islamic scholars (rahimahumullâhu ta’âlâ) after learning the facts contained in this book, we advise that they read books published in different languages by the Hakîkat Kitabevi (Bookstore) in Istanbul. The names of these books are appended to our books. Read this book slowly and with reflection! Encourage others to read it, too! An ignorant person cannot be a good Muslim. Indeed, it is impossible for a person not to attach all his heart to Islam after learning its fundamentals. After reading this book, you will also realize what a lofty, sacred, logical, and perfect religion Islam is, and you will attach all your heart and soul to it in order to attain salvation and repose in this world and in the hereafter.
Islam that abrogated celestial religions of Judaism and Christianity along with their validity is explained first.
