If you deny me before man, I will deny you on the day of Judgement

 

Question:

 

Do u have a refrence for the hadith “If you deny me before man,I will deny youon thedayof Judgement”?

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

This is not a Hadeeth, but rather it is a lie attributed to Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam which can be found in many chain messages.

 

We must always keep very firmly in mind the Hadeeth of Hadhrat Salamah Radhiallaahu `Anhu who narrated that Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Whoever attributes something to me which I have not said, then let him prepare his abode in the fire (of hell).” – Authentic, from Saheeh Al-Bukhaari. [i]

 

So to attribute lies to Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam is a very serious issue.

 

In any case, this statement is actually from the bible. It says in Matthew 10:33: But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. [ii]

 

So it is a Christian bible statement, and not a Hadeeth of Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam.

 

 

And Allaah knows best.

Is there a specific order of takbeer and action?

 

Question:

 

When leading or praying is there a specific order of takbeer and action, in both situations as imam or praying individually?

so for example before going to ruku, when do you say the ‘Allahu Akbar’? before going down in ruku or whilst going down in Ruku’.

if you could please also mention the source.JZk

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

In all situations the method will be the same, whether you are the Imaam, whether you are performing behind an Imaam or whether you are performing Salaah alone.

 

The method is that you move with the Takbeer, you start the Takbeer as you begin to move, and you end it when you enter into the new posture.

 

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah Radhiallaahu `Anhu narrates: “When Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam stood up to perform Salaah, he (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) would say the Takbeer when he stood up, then he (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) would say the Takbeer when he bowed, then he (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) would say “Sami`allaahu liman hamidah” until he was standing up straight after bowing, and when he was standing he (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) would say, “Rabbanaa lakal hamd” – or “Rabbanaa walakal hamd” -. Then he (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) would say The Takbeer when he went down in prostration, then he would say the Takbeer when he raised his head, then he would say the Takbeer when he prostrated, then he would say the Takbeer when he raised his head, and he did that throughout the Salaah until he finished. And he (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) would say the Takbeer when he stood up after two Rak`ahs after sitting.” – Authentic, from Saheeh Al-Bukhaari. [i]

 

Imaam Ibraaheem Ibn Muhammad Al-Halabi Rahimahullaah says in Ghunyatul Mutamalli: “The Sunnah method of these glorifications (i.e. Takbeer) is to start it (i.e. saying the Takbeer) when starting to move, and end it when ending into the new posture.” [ii]

 

Therefore a person should not say the Takbeer before moving, nor should he say it only after having entered the next posture, but rather it should be done simultaneously.

Saying Jumah Mubarak

 

Question:

 

On the day of Jumah we usually tell each other “Jumah Mubarak” – But recently I heard someone saying it is a Bidah. Could the Ulama here please clarify this?

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam used to habitually say in his (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) Khutbahs: “The worst of matters are the newly invented ones, and every newly invented matter is an innovation, and every innovation is misguidance, and all misguidance is in the fire (of hell).” – Authentic, from Sunan An-Nasaa’i. [i]

 

One new innovation that has sprung up in recent times is the saying “Jumu`ah Mubarak”, this is not something that was taught to us by Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam or the Sahaabah Radhiallaahu `Anhum or the pious predecessors, despite them being much more knowledgeable than us about the virtues and blessings of Jumu`ah.

 

This is besides the fact that it is linguistically incorrect to say “Jumu`ah Mubaarak”, the correct way would be to say “Jumu`ah Mubaarakah”.

 

But in any case, to say “Jumu`ah Mubarak” to a person now and then will be acceptable, as long as a person is aware that this greeting is not from the Sunnah, and it is not made a habit.

 

It was with this in mind that the `Ulamaa had kept silent when it had first surfaced, but the situation today has changed drastically from where it was when it had started.

 

In the early days after its appearance no person with any real knowledge of Islaam would say “Jumu`ah Mubarak”, it was only in vogue amongst people that didn’t really have much knowledge of the Deen, but it slowly crept into the lives of more and more muslims, until it reached the stage where scholars also started sending out Jumu`ah Mubarak messages.

 

Today one finds that some people have stopped greeting on Friday with “Assalaamu `Alaykum” and have replaced it with “Jumu`ah Mubarak”, so where a person would once say “Assalaamu `Alaykum, how are you?” they now say “Jumu`ah Mubarak, how are you?” thereby replacing a Sunnah with a Bid`ah, and Imaam Hassaan Ibn `Atiyyah Rahimahullaah said so aptly as is narrated by Imaam Ash-Shaatibi Rahimahullaah in Al-I`tisaam: No nation introduces an innovation into their religion but that Allaah removes a Sunnah equal to it, and Allaah will not return that Sunnah to them until the day of resurrection”. [ii]

 

So it has reached the stage of being an innovation that should be stopped, because if it is not brought to people’s attention now, then how long will it be before it gets taken as being Sunnah or it replaces other Sunan?

 

May Allaah safeguard us, keep us firm upon the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and grant us all the understanding.

 

 

And Allaah knows best.
