Dealing in Riba (Interest) is War against Allaah and His Messenger (pbuh)

In the name of Allaah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful Verily, the issue of Riba is one of the most serious matters that should be tackled. In this regard, all of the heavenly revelations have prohibited dealing in it, and Allaah warns those dealing in it with the severest threat. Allaah, Exalted be He, says: "Those who consume interest cannot stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity..." [Quran: Al-Baqarah: 275] In this verse, Allaah decrees for the person, who deals in Riba and accepts its interest that he "cannot stand" from his grave "except as one stands who is being beaten Read more ...

The Tyranny of the Rulers is Not a Reason for Rebellion

The goal of the Jihadist sects is one and the same: rebellion against those in authority and a desire to rule over the Muslim lands. They may alter their names and titles but their ideology remains the same. Islam itself, despite what these sects assert, forbids open censure and rebellion against even the most wicked and tyrannical of Muslim rulers. The Prophet of Allaah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), upon whose statements and actions we establish our religion, stated in an authentic tradition: “There will appear after me rulers, they will not guide by my guidance, and they will not establish my Sunnah; there will be amongst them men whose hearts will Read more ...
