page 390 Selling Grapes to a Winemaker

 k4.9 It is unlawful to sell grapes to someone who will make wine from them,  will result, or  thinks it will. If there is doubt or if one merely imagines it, then the transaction is merely offensive. Selling in such cases is unlawful or offensive because it is a means to disobedience, whether certain or suspected. Tirmidhi relates that the Prophet cursed whoever drinks wine, gives it to others to drink, sell it, buys it, presses it for another, transports it, receives it, or eats its price.

Marriage without a guardian/witness?



How I gave up on a modern Muslim marriage | Huma Qureshi

The British Muslim Parliament, Muslim Women Network and the Muslim Institute, agreed to some changes to Muslim marriage law:, ie 1) an adult bride does not need a wali (a guardian or witness), 2) a wali can be a woman or non-Muslim.

Umdatal Salik thinks that the above Muslim organisations are adjusting the sharia for Muslims in the UK. Those changes, however, are not Sharia-compliant and will never be accepted in a sharia-ruled country. According to the Umdatal Salik, Book M in the http://www.shafiifiqh.com/maktabah/relianceoftraveller.pdf :

THE WITNESSES: m3.3 The second integral is that the marriage have witnesses, it not being valid unless two witnesses are present who are:

(a) male ;

(e) Muslims …

THE BRIDE’S GUARDIAN: m3.4 The third integral is the (A: bride’s guardian (O: since a woman may not conduct her own marriage. Ibn Majah relates that the Prophet said. “Let no woman marry a woman to another or marry herself to another.”

Daraqutni related this hadith with a chain of transmission meeting the standards of Bukhari and Muslim). The marriage agreement is not valid without a guardian who is:(a) male; (b) legally responsible (mukallaf, def: c8.1); (c) Muslim; (d) upright (def: o24.4);(e) and of sound judgement.

The following may not be a bride’s guardian: (1) a woman; (3) a non-Muslim.

A non-Muslim responsible for a non-Muslim bride may be her guardian (O: provided he does not violate the rules of his own religion), though a Muslim may not. m3.6 (n: If the bride has no Muslim guardian and there is no Islamic magistrate to act as one, she mayauthorize a male Muslim who has the qualifications of an Islamic judge (def: o22.1)-or if there is none, then a male Muslim who is legally upright (def: o24.4)-to act as her guardian in marrying her to the groom (Mughni al-muhtaj ila ma`rifa ma`ani alfaz al-Minhaj (y73), 3.147).)



Extraneous conditions added to the marriage contract, such as that the husband observe monogamy or the like, are not binding, being meaningless, though they do not invalidate the marriage agreement, which remains effective.)

Belief in Allah’s Inspired Books

u 3.4 page 811 :

To believe in His inspired Books means those which He revealed to His messengers …

 (A. the obligation of belief applies to the original revelations, not the various scriptures in the hands of non-Muslims, which are textually corrupt in their present form.)

Scholars differ as to how many Books there are. Some hold they number 104, and some say otherwise. One is obliged to know four particular Books:

1) the Tawrah (Torah, revealed to our liegelord Musa (Moses);

2) The Injil (Evangel), revealed to our liegelord ‘Isa (Jesus);

3) the Zabur (Psalms), revealed to our liegelord Dawud (David);

4) and the Qur’an, revealed to our liegelord Muhammad.

Belief in Allah’s Messengers

u3.5 page 811 … It is obligatory to know 25 particular messengers:

Adam, Idris (Enoch), Nuh (Noah) Hud, Salih, Lot, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Ya’qub (Jacob), Yusuf (Joseph), Shu’ayb. Harun (Aaron), Musa (Moses), Dawud (David), Sulayman (Solomon), Ayyub (Job), Dhul Kifl (Ezekiel), Yunus (Jonah), Ilyas (Elias), Zakariya (Zacharias), Yahya (John) ‘Isa (Jesus) and Muhammad.

Music, Song and Dance

r40.1 page 774 … As for the condemnation of musical instruments, flutes, strings and the like … let those who refuse to obey him beware lest calamnity strike them, or a painful torment. The Prophet said :

1) ”Allah .. commended me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes and the affair of the pre-islamic period of ignorance.”

2) ”On the Day of Resurrection, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress.”

3) ”Song makes hypocrisy grow in the heart as water does herbage.”

4) ”This Community will experience the swallowing up of some people by the earth, metamorphosois of some into animals, and being rained upon with stones.’ Someone asked, ‘When will that be, O Rasulullah?’ and he said, ‘When songstresses and musical instruments appear and wine is held to be lawful.” 

All of this is explicit and compelling textual evidence that musical insturments of all types are unlawful (Kaff al-ra’a’ ‘an muharramat al-lahw wa al-sama’ (y49), 2.260-70).

r40.2 … it is permissable to play the tambourine at weddings, circumcisions and other times, even if it has bells on its sides.

r 40.3 As for listening to singing that is not accompanied by instruments, one should know that singing or listening to singing is offensive except under the circumstances to be mentioned in what follows.

r40.4.. It is not prohibited to dance … because it is only motions made while standing or bowing. … in the Hadith .. the Prophet stood before ‘A’isha to screen her from view so that she could observe the Abyssinians sporting and dancing – unless it is languid, like the movements of the effeminate.

Bits & Bobs re the kafir

Cursing r38.0 page 773: ‘As for those the Prophet personally cursed, perhaps it was because he knew they would die in unbelief. Praying that evil befalls a person is similar to cursing, even when against a tyrant, such as saying ‘May Allah not heal him,’ ‘May Allah not keep him safe,’ and similar remarks, all of which are blameworthy [A: being  unlawful, IF OF A MUSLIM]’

Muhammad, terror & war booty

According to our sharia manual on page 847 above, Muhammad 1) had been made triumphant through dread and 2) war booty has been made lawful for him.

The terms dread and war booty are further clarified below.

1) The first point was also confirmed by the most authoritative hadith, ie the hadith of Bukhari, see below pictures number 2 and 3 from left, from Hadith Bukhari Book IV.

Here Bukhari quoted the prophet as saying, ‘I have been made victorious … with terror …’

2) The second point (booty has been made lawful to the prophet of Islam) is also included in Hadith Bukhari. See his quotations in screenshots number 4 & 5 above, from Bukhari I-IV (picture 6) and complete screenshot of Bukhari IV page 628 (pictures 7).

The prophet is quoted as saying, ‘Booty has been made legal for me.’

More hadith on booty can be found here : http://www.islam-watch.org/Logical/Allah-make-War-Booty-Halal-Prophet-Muhammad.htm

Book #7, Hadith #331 as found in islamwatch‘s link above, even said that Booty has been made Halal (lawful) for the prophet, even casting terror in the hearts of the enemies, yet it was not lawful for anyone else before him.  It should at least be heartening to hear the acknowledgement from the prophet himself that no prophet before him ever tried to cast terror in the heart of their enemies or tried to steal/raid/rob somebody else’s property.

See also picture 8 of a bookcover entitled ”Islam and the Malay World” by Peter Riddell, and picture 9 of text in that book on page 61 quoting the prophet saying ”… plunder has been made lawful for me and it was not made lawful for anyone before me.”

Islam to RULE over all others

Muslim apologists will claim that Islam respects ALL religions and that the Koran confirms the validity of especially Judaism and Christianity, that the three share the same God. However, this is not entirely true, because the Koran also claims the holy books of Judaism and Christianity as having been ‘corrupted.’ The sharia, thus, has clearly stipulated how  Islam views Judaism and Christianity. See page 846 :

Note that it is specifically mentioned that English-speaking Muslims are occasionally exposed to erroneous theories advanced by teachers affirming the validity of Christianity or Judaism, but denying or not mentioning their abrogation. In other words, Islam abrogated/invalidated Judaism and Christianity, now considered ‘remnant cults bearing the name of formerly  valid religions such as ”Christianity” or ”Judaism.”’ Note also that ‘this is a matter over which there is NO disagreement amongst scholars.’

And so it was and it continues to be practised in Muslim majority countries where the sharia takes precedence over secular law. For example:  the Administrative court of Egypt in the case of the Muslim apostate, Mohammed Hegazy, explained its ruling on Hegazy’s case in February 2007 by saying that it’s prohibited “to switch from the superior religion, Islam, to the inferior one, Christianity.”



“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”- Omar M. Ahmad, founder of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) July 4th, 1998

“I am telling you that my religion doesn’t tolerate other religion. It doesn’t tolerate. The only one law which needs to spread, it can be here or anywhere else, has to be Islam” – Abu Bakr, Muslim Cleric

“Oh, you Muslims everywhere, sever the ties of their nation, tear them apart, ruin their economy, instigate against their corporations, destroy their embassies, attack their interests, sink their ships, and shoot down their airplanes. Kill them in land, at sea, and in the air, kill them wherever you find them.” – Sheikh Abdel Rahman from a US prison

“The real weapons of mass destruction are the desire for martyrdom. Millions of you are ready to be shaheed. Half a million martyrdom shaheed is enough for Muslims to control the whole of earth forever. In the end of the day, Islam must control earth, whether we like it or not.” – Abu Hamza al-Masri, Islamic Cleric

“We don’t make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians…Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value.” – British career welfare recipient Sheikh Omar Bakri

“We must not forget that Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands…” – Imam Muzammil H. Siddiqi, Islamic Society of North America

“Ultimately, we (Muslims) can never be full citizens of this country … because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country” – Ihsan Bagby, CAIR

“The 9/11 hijackers should be honored as martyrs.”
– Warith Deen Umar, Former Muslim Chaplain, New York Prisons

“Now, all our imams, our public speakers, should be concentrating on militarizing the Muslim public…Only carrying arms will do this task.” – Muhammad Al-Asi, Former Imam at the Washington, D.C. Islamic Center

“Americans in general might be more supportive of targeted attacks on civilians, as part of the war on terror, than U.S. Muslims.” – Ahmad Al-Akhras, CAIR

“In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing. And the only thing left will be Islam.” – Siraj Wahhaj, Brooklyn, New York Imam

“Muslims cannot accept the legitimacy of the secular system in the United States, for it “is against the orders and ordainments of Allah … the orientation of the Qur’an pushes us in the exact opposite direction as the forces that are at work in the American political spectrum.” – Imam Zaid Shakir, Former Muslim Chaplain at Yale University

“Let us continue the protests. Let us damn America. Let us damn Israel. Let us damn their allies until death. Mohammad is leader. The Qu’ran is our constitution. Jihad is our path. Victory to Islam. Death to Israel. Revolution! Revolution! Until Victory! Rolling, rolling to Jerusalem.” – Sami Al Arian

“This religion [Islam] will destroy all other religions through the Islamic Jihad fighters”- Jordanian/Palestinian School Book 1998

“Mosques are our barracks, domes our helmets, minarets our bayonets, believers our soldiers.” – Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan

“Islam not a religion of violence, but if you burn Qur’ans or draw Muhammad, we’ll kill you” – Gambian President

“No we don’t want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy” “We love you, America – and we want your children for Islam” – Islam on Capitol Hill.com

“I am a traitor to America because my religion requires me to be. We pledge to wage jihad for the rest of our lives until either we implant Islam all over the world or meet our Lord as bearers of Islam.” – Samir Khan
