One of the callers of Jamā’at ut-Tablīgh says,
“We have caused the people to be lost in the name of Tawhīd and have encouraged them upon sinning. And this is due to the statement that the Muwahhid (person of Tawhīd) will enter Paradise regardless of his sins other than Shirk. Tawhīd, Tawhīd and Tawhīd. So how will we respond to Allāh عز وجل regarding the existence of these sinners?”
So the question is, what is your Excellency’s opinion regarding this statement.
Shaykh Sālih bin Fawzān bin ‘Abdullāh al-Fawzān:
This is the statement of an ignoramus or a misguided one. Either he is an ignoramus and does not know the speech regarding the issues of knowledge, or he knows yet is misguided and desires misguidance of the people.
So there is no doubt that Shirk is the greatest of the sins and that its committer will not enter Paradise, period. And as for the committer of sins, even if they be major and not Shirk, then forgiveness and entrance to Paradise will return to him. And this is something which is not from us.
Allāh جل وعلا says, “Verily, Allāh forgives not that partners should be set up with Him in worship, but He forgives that (anything else) to whom He pleases” (An-Nisā’ 4: 48).
And in the Hadīth [the Messenger ﷺ said, that Allāh will say,] “Remove from the Fire whosoever has in his heart īmān equivalent to the weight of mustard seed” [Narrated by Abī Sa'īd and reported by Bukhārī & others].
So Tawhīd guarantees for its possessor Paradise, either in the beginning or in the end, even if he is punished (in Hell). As for the Mushrik then there is no security for him ever.
“It is those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh and worship none but Him alone) and confuse not their belief with Zulm (wrong i.e. by worshipping others besides Allāh)… “ (Al-An’ām: 6: 82) meaning by Shirk. “…for them (only) there is security and they are the guided” (Al-An’ām: 6: 82).
So the people of Tawhīd have security, those who do not cover their īmān with Zulm meaning Shirk have security, either completely or in the end. As for the Mushrik then he has no security, period. And he is eternally in the Fire.
So this one who says that Tawhīd caused the people to be lost, then this – and Allāh’s Refuge is sought – is atrocious speech. This is atrocious speech, false speech. Tawhīd is what rectified the people and it is what will save the people on the Day of Resurrection from the Fire. So, it (Tawhīd) is the basis, and it is the foundation. And there is no comparison between the (ordinary) sin and Shirk. Shirk is the greatest of sins, and there is no salvation alongside of it. As for the sins then they are under the will (of Allāh). If Allāh Wills He can punish their committer and if He Wills He can forgive him. And if he is punished then his final outcome will (eventually) be Paradise. Na’am.
The Correct Stance of Every Muslim on the Film about Muhammed (peace be upon him) – Shaykh Saalih as-Suhaymee
Published on 20 Sep 2012 by DaarusSunnah
Shaykh Saalih as-Suhaymee – Teacher at the Prophet’s Masjid in Madeenah
Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu ‘ala rasulullaah
Shaikh Saalih as-Suhaymee (hafidhahullaah Ta’aala) said:
“Firstly, there is no doubt that abusing the Prophets is not tolerated by any religion or intellect, and I do not think those intellectuals in those non-Islaamic countries accept this (film) either. And Allaah has raised the mention of our Prophet (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), so we are not in need of anyone to clarify his status for us after (what has been stated) about his mention in the Qur`an and Sunnah.
[Allaah said to His Messenger ('alayhi as-salatu wa salaam:]
وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ
And (have We not) raised high your fame? (Ash-Sharh, ayah 4)
No one approves of this behavior, and I do not think that even those countries would approve of such acts as this. The Mufti has issued a clarification in the Kingdom of Sa’udia Arabia, denouncing that vile film – which does not harm anyone except those who produced it. It does not harm the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) at all, for indeed Allaah Tabarak wa Ta’aala has honored him and revered him.
Therefore, if anyone abuses the Prophets (such as Muhammad, Jesus, Moses, Abraham, Noah, etc…), then that does not mean the Prophets are harmed due to it; rather the person (who abuses them) is harmed and he will receive the evil repercussions. So it is upon us as Muslims to deal with such events according to the Islaamic legislation.
Therefore, the demonstrations and the storming of the embassies or the killing of innocent people – who are not involved in these affairs – is an evil deed according to us Muslims. We do not approve of this in any circumstance, and this is not from our religion and it is not from our legislation. Thus, the storming of the embassies is not from our religion nor is the killing of so and so ambassador nor is assaulting others a part of our Religion, al-Haneef (The [only] Monotheistic Religion [Islaam]).
Our religion is a religion of peace; our religion is a religion of goodness. Our religion prohibits assaulting others. Our religion prohibits abusing others. Our religion gives the due right to its people (whether) Muslim or non-Muslim. And that which we hold to be from our Religion is that these chaotic actions that are carried out by some of the youth do not represent the religion of Islaam or the Muslim population.
Rather, these actions are the result of their emotions and that is not tolerated from them. And we denounce such actions with every kind of denouncing. Just as we have extremely denounced this film and its likes which was produced by those rabbles from those countriesm whom have only harmed themselves before harming the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
The disbelieving Quraish used to abuse the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), the would call him blameworthy, a poet, and sorcerer and called him whatever they called him (from the vile nicknames), they wounded his head, they broke his molar tooth, and they placed the intestines of a camel on top of his head. They did what they did, however the Muslims (the companions) did not protest or storm or kill, because this does not serve the Religion of Allaah, Subhanahu wa Ta’aala.
So I want the youth to understand that they should return back to the scholars who are well cultivated in this issue, those who refute the distortion of the extremists and (refute) those who (distort) the text (Qur`an and Sunnah) to suit their desires, and likewise the ignorant who misinterpret the text.
There is no doubt that the killing of the innocent – whether a Muslim or non-Muslim – is prohibited, and our Religion does not tolerate it, especially if there is a treaty between us and them, like peace treaties or an agreement between us and them.
This is the Sunnah of Allaah with His creation. So the ambassador serves as an emissary to another country, and the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) did not kill (the emissaries) of Caesar and the king of Persia and other than those who were upon the same religion as them. So it is obligatory upon us to understand these affairs. Protests are not from the Religion of Allaah, Subhanahu wa Ta’aala; rather it is a symbol of demagogism which the Religion of Allaah does not tolerate.
And we – by Allaah – love Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) more than we love ourselves and our families and our parents and our children and all the people together. However, this love should not cause us to go beyond the boundaries which (Allaah) has laid down for us from the legislated rulings of Islaam. (It should not make us) enter into the religion that which is not part of it.
The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) warned against killing the one who holds a covenant with the Muslims, or the one who is under the protection of the Muslims, or the one who is under a peace treaty with the Muslims.
The ambassador is considered to be just like the one who is under a peace treaty with the Muslims, and assaulting him is in opposition to the guidance of the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), who said: Whoever kills a person under a covenant will not smell the fragrance of Paradise.
And that ruling is also applicable to the one who is under the protection of the Muslims and Dhimee (Jews and Christians who live under the law and protection of the Muslims).
So those people are under our protection in our lands; it is not permissible to violate them with any type of violence. It is obligatory to return to the scholars in this affair as I have said, those who will judge according to the truth and justice. As for dealing with this matter with uncontrolled emotions, then we should place boundaries upon this and free ourselves from it and from its practitioner.”

Conditions For The Achievement Of Victory, by Shaikh Muhammad ibn Jameel Zaynoo (rahimahullaah Ta’aala)
Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu ‘ala rasulullaah
Verily, the one who reads the biography and struggle of the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) will see the following stages:
1- The stage of Tawheed: The Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) remained in Makkah for 13 years, calling his people to the Tawheed of Allaah in worship, supplication and legislation – and the fighting of Shirk – until this ‘Aqeedah became firm and established in the souls of his Companions, and they became courageous, not fearful of anyone except Allaah. Hence, it is obligatory for the callers to Islaam (du’aat) to start with Tawheed and to warn against Shirk, so that they may become amongst those who take the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) as a model and an example to be followed.
2- The stage of Brotherhood: Verily, the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) migrated from Makkah to Madeenah in order to form a Muslim community based upon mutual love. So the first thing he began with was building a mosque in order to gather the Muslims in it for the worship of their Lord, Who ordained the five daily prayers for them to organize their lives. The Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) promptly embarked upon setting up a brotherhood between the Ansaar (the residents of Madeenah) and the Muhaajiroon who had migrated from Makkah and had left their wealth and property behind. Then the Ansaar offered their wealth and property to the Muhaajiroon, and provided them with every assistance that they needed.
The Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) found that the residents of Madeenah from the Aws and the Khazraj* had previous enmity between themselves. So he made peace between them, and Allaah removed hatred and enmity from their hearts. The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) made them brothers in Eeman and Tawheed, loving each other for the sake of Allaah, as has been reported in the hadeeth: A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim…
3- The stage of Preparation: Verily, the Noble Qur`an has ordered us to make preparations for the enemies. So Allaah, The Most High, said:
وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِنْ قُوَّة
And make ready against them all you can of power… (Al-Anfal, ayah 60)
The Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) explained this verse by saying: Is the power not warfare? [Muslim]
So warfare and the study of all its branches is obligatory upon all the Muslims, depending on their ability. This obligation includes studying the use of guns, tanks, planes and other weapons which are needed for warfare.
Woe to the students of the colleges who study warfare and then take part in competitions and races which are not beneficial for the defense of their religion and their sacred places. However, the youth squander their time playing football, and taking part in competitions, during which they display their bigoted team loyalty, which Islaam has ordered us to abolish. They also neglect their prayers, which Allaah has ordered us to preservere.
4- When we return to the ‘Aqeedah of Tawheed, and we become brothers and sisters – loving each other for the sake of Allaah – and we prepare weapons for the enemies, then if Allaah Wills, the Muslims will achieve victory and the Help of Allaah just as the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and the companions after him achieved victory and the Help of Allaah. Allaah, The Most High, said:
يَاأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ تَنصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ
Oh you who believe! If you help (in the cause of) Allaah, He will help you, and make your foothold firm.
(Muhammad, ayah 7)
5- By categorizing these stages, we do not mean that they are separate and distinct, i.e. that the stage of brotherhood cannot be present alongside the stage of Tawheed. Rather, it is possible that these stages can co-exist. Allaah, The Most High, said:
وَكَانَ حَقّاً عَلَيْنَا نَصْرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
…and (as for) the believers, it was incumbent upon Us to help (them). (Ar-Rum, ayah 47)
This noble verse explains that Allaah has promised help for the believers against their enemies, and it is a promise that will not be revoked. Allaah helped His Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in the Battle of Badr, and He helped the Confederates during other battles and expeditions.
He, The Most High, helped the companions of the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) after him against their enemies. He spread Islaam, opened the lands, and aided the Muslims despite the misfortunes and calamities. It was a reward for the believers, those who were truthful to Allaah in their Eeman, their Tawheed, their worship, and their supplication to their Lord in times of hardship and in times of ease.
The Qur`an relates the condition of the believers during the Battle of Badr, when they were few in number and without many weapons, so they called upon their Lord:
إِذْ تَسْتَغِيثُونَ رَبَّكُمْ فَاسْتَجَابَ لَكُمْ أَنِّي مُمِدُّكُمْ بِأَلْف ٍ مِنَ الْمَلاَئِكَةِ مُرْدِفِينَ
(Remember) when you sought help of your Lord and He answered you (saying): “I will help you with a thousand of the angels each behind the other (following one another) in succession.” (Al-Anfal, ayah 9)
Allaah answered their supplication and aided them with angels who fought with them and struck the necks and limbs of the disbelievers, and that is when He, The Most High, said:
فَاضْرِبُوا فَوْقَ الأَعْنَاقِ وَاضْرِبُوا مِنْهُمْ كُلَّ بَنَان
…so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.” (Al-Anfal, ayah 12)
He, The Most High, brought about help and victory for the believers – the Muwahhiddeen – those who singled Him out for worship. He, The Most High, said:
وَلَقَدْ نَصَرَكُمُ اللَّهُ بِبَدْر ٍ وَأَنْتُمْ أَذِلَّة ٌ فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ
And Allaah has already made you victorious at Badr, when you were a weak little force. So fear Allaah much that you may be grateful. (Aali Imran, ayah 123)
One of the supplications of the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in the Battle of Badr was: Oh Allaah, fulfill for me that which You promised me. Oh Allaah, if you destroy this group from the people of Islaam, You will not be worshipped on the earth. [Muslim]
We see the Muslims of today entering into wars against their enemies in most of the lands, but they are not aided and they do not find victory, so what is the reason for that? Has the Promise of Allaah ascribed to the believers failed to come true? No, never! It has not failed, however, where are the believers in order that He may give them the help and victory mentioned in the verses?
We ask the Mujaahideen (those who fight in the Path of Allaah):
1- Have they prepared with Eeman and Tawheed which the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) began his call with in Makkah before the fighting?
2- Have they acquired the means which their Lord ordered them to acquire in His saying:
وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِنْ قُوَّة
And make ready against them all you can of power… (Al-Anfal, ayah 60)
Verily, the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) explained it as warfare.
3- Did they call upon their Lord and single Him out for supplication at the time of fighting? Or did they associate partners with Him, and then set out to ask help from other than Him, from those whom they believed to have sovereignty, whereas they [those worshipped besides Allaah] were themselves slaves of Allaah, and they were not capable of benefiting or harming anyone. Why do they not follow the example of the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in his supplication to his Lord alone?
أَلَيْسَ اللَّهُ بِكَافٍ عَبْدَه
Is not Allaah Sufficient for His slave?… (Az-Zumar, ayah 36)
4- Also, are they united and loving one another regarding that which is between them, their distinguishing feature being, the saying of their Lord:
وَلاَ تَنَازَعُوا فَتَفْشَلُوا وَتَذْهَبَ رِيحُكُمْ
…Do not dispute (with one another) lest you lose courage and your strength depart… (Al-Anfal, ayah 46)
5- Finally, why did the Muslims leave their ‘aqeedah and the commandments of their religion, which orders precedence to be given to knowledge and civilization, in opposition to the rest of the nations? So when they return to their religion, their superiority and honor will return to them. When you implement the required Eeman, then He shall give you the promised help and victory.
وَكَانَ حَقّاً عَلَيْنَا نَصْرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
…and (as for) the believers, it was incumbent upon Us to help (them). (Ar-Rum, ayah 47)

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy
Question Number 19:
From Libya, the questioner asks:
‘’It is not hidden (regarding) what is happening in Syria and to its people, and to the Muslims (with regards) to killing, violation of honour, destruction of houses and mosques by the administration of Bash’shaar Asad [The Nusayree, the Raafidi (Shi’ee)]; so do we (perform) the Qunoot and supplicate for them in the obligatory prayers knowing that the one in charge of the religious affairs has allowed the Imaams of the mosques to (perform) Qunoot?”
My dear son, you asked and accomplished (the affair). The affair has been accomplished; the ministry of religious affairs has given permission and it has acted on behalf of the ruler by (allowing) the Qunoot on behalf of your believing brothers—those who are weak and oppressed in Syria—so (perform) Qunoot. The one amongst you who wants to make Qunoot in his house, (then) even if the ruler did not allow the Qunoot; he is (still allowed to perform the Qunoot in his house). But I advise you:
Specify the believers (in your supplication) and not for the whole nation, because there is one in the nation who is a ba’thee (socialist/communist), and amongst them is one whose orientation is towards democracy, secularism; so specify the believers (in your supplication).
Adopt a middle course in your supplication; do not prolong it, make it short. That which some of the Imaams of the mosques do in the beginning of the Witr Qunoot, perhaps saying: ‘’O Allaah give us rain’’ and (then sometimes) supplicates for the Muslims in general. This is not transmitted from the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). And what is transmitted in the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) in Bukhaari, Muslim and its like, is to specify those who are weak and oppressed amongst the believers, men and women.

Question: The Palestinian Intifada has now been going on for 1 ½ years. We throw stones at the jews that either hits them on the head or not. What do you say about throwing stones at the jews or continuing the Intifada in this way at all?
Shaykh al-Albânî: We have honored the intifada from the entire beginning. It deserves to be honored given its courage and heroism. However, it goes about the wrong way. If we firstly consider the Sharî’ah-based texts and thereafter the biography of the prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), we see that this matter is in need of preparation. This preparation addresses two matters;
1. the spiritual
2. and the militaristic.
We already know that the prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his companions were subjected to hardships by the polytheists in Makkah until Allâh (tabârak wa ta’âlâ) allowed some of them to emigrate even if it be to Abyssinia. Allâh thereafter allowed the prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to emigrate from Makkah to al-Madînah. He was followed by those who were able to follow, and others stayed. The believers are up until today subjected to the worst punishments [by the Kuffâr etc], which history is a witness to.
What I want to say is, the Muslims of the world (should not) rush it. They should rather prepare themselves to fight against the disbelievers (Kuffâr) and expel them from the Muslim countries to the disbelieving countries. That is why Allâh (ta’âlâ) said in the Qur’ân:
“And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy”
(8:60, interpretation of the meanings)
The intifada is undoubtedly just as (it was) before though even more evident. It has not been prepared at all in order to be able to fight against the disbelievers who have occupied this country (I.e. Palestine). Both spiritual and militaristic preparations are missing.
Secondly, we see that it is useless and worthless to confront various types of machine guns by way of stones. That is why I do not see any results from this intifada. It has now been going on for two entire years and they still stand on the same spot. Especially since the Arabic countries, who after all have a fairly [acceptable] military force, doesn’t help our brothers militaristically.

What are the means which the west uses in order to spread their ideas and thoughts? – ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah)
Q & A’s Concerning the Ideological Attack
Shaykh ‘Abdul-’Azeez bin Baaz , Al-Istiqaamah Magazine
[Q3]: What are the means which the west uses in order to spread their ideas and thoughts?
[A3]: The means that the west employs in order to spread their thoughts and ideas are many, from them:-
Firstly: The attempt to conquer the minds of the Muslim children. They do this by infusing in them western values and concepts so that they then believe that the best way to adopt in any matter is that of the west – whether it is with regards to what religion or sect they believe, or with regards to the languages that they speak, or the manners, customs and values with which they clothe themselves.
Secondly: Custody of a large group of the children of the Muslims in every country, concern for them and bringing them up, so that when they absorb western thoughts, they return to their countries with a halo of praise and compliment, until they acquire position and authority in their countries by which they circulate western ideologies and establish learning centres conforming to western curricula or are directly influenced by them.
Thirdly: Their active drive towards promoting the learning of western languages in the Muslim lands, making them compete with the Muslims’ languages, especially the Arabic language, which is language of the Qur’aan – by which this Book was sent and by which the Muslims worship their Lord;in their Salaah (Prayer), their rites of Hajj (Pilgrimage), their forms of remembrances and glorifications, etc. From this is the encouragement of destructive propaganda that fights against [the usage and learning] of [pure and classical] Arabic Language and attempt to weaken the conformity to it in the Muslim lands. They do this by calling to using colloquialism, and by arranging numerous studies that intend to ‘develop’ grammar in order to corrupt it; as well as formalising folk literature and and matters of national heritage.
Fourthly: Development of western universities and missionary schools in Muslim countries and also initiating the role of kindergarten and playschools, hospitals and clinics which they make as dens and nests for their evil aims. They encourage the higher classes to study in them (western and missionary schools and universities) and after them help in acquire leadership posts and great position until they become an aid for their masters in following their plots in the Muslim lands.
Fifthly: The attempt to control education curricula in Muslim lands and drawing out their politics, either directly; as occurred in some Muslim countries when the priest Dunlop undertook that task there, or by indirect methods. When the task was undertaken, most of the successful students who studied in Dunlop’s schools and graduated in them, arose as a destructive pickaxe in their country, or as one of the enemies most lethal weapons. [Such students] strive hard to influence the educational curriculum and steer it towards secularism – an ideology which does not centre around having eemaan (faith) in Allaah and His Messenger; but rather steers in the direction of atheism, or towards immorality and corruption.
Sixthly: The large number of individuals amongst the jews and christians who have undertaken the study of Islam, Arabic Language, compiling books, and taking positions of teaching in universities; until they created an ideological turmoil and confusion amongst the educated Muslims, which they hurl at those that they are teaching, or with which they fill their books – until some of those books became sources which writers and researchers refer to in matters of ideology or history. Many people who were responsible for creating some of these fitnahs (trials and turmoil) in the Muslim countries, were actually Muslims who graduated at the hands of the people. The praise and awe which surrounded such graduates helped them to achieve this, as well as achieve their post and positions; such as important posts in teaching and leadership. So they completed what their teachers had initiated [of corruption and destruction] and fulfilled what they couldn’t achieve, because they were of Muslim offspring and from the same skin, ascribing themselves to them and speaking their tongue – so we ask and seek Allaah’s help.
Seventhly: A large number of missionary workers calling to christianity have proceeded between the Muslims that they have performed their work on. [This missionary activity is done upon] well studied principles, and upon a large scale; employing hundreds of thousands of men and women. Huge financial budgets are put aside for this task, and [they are aided in such a way that] their task is made easier for them and obstacles are removed for them.
“They want to extinguish the Light (i.e, the Religion) of Allaah with their mouths, but Allaah will bring His Light to perfection and completion, even though the disbelievers hate it.” [Soorah as-Saff 61:8].
Just as the efforts of the missionaries are set up and aimed mostly at the common levels; then the efforts of the orientalist are directed to the educated – as I previously mentioned. The missionaries take on huge hardships in their work in the African Countries, and in the remote villages of the far extreme Muslim lands; in eastern Asia. After that, every so often, they hold conferences in order to review their accounts and their plans; then they analyse, adjust and implement. They met in Cairo in 1906, in Edinburgh in 1910, in Lucknow (India) in 1911, and in Jerusalem in 1935, and they continue to hold such assemblies, seminars and conferences – so glory be to the One in Whose Hand is the sole sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, and to Him return all affairs.
Eighthly: Spreading corruption in the Muslim societies; belittling the with regards to their role in life, making her transgress the limits set by Allaah for her, creating in her a satisfaction in abstaining from the [correct] Path. They do this by spreading propaganda amongst the Muslims in various ways and manners, so that women freely mix with men, and so that women work in the places of men. By this, they aim to corrupt the Muslim society, and to put an end to the chastity and purity which is found therein. Additionally, by bringing up imaginary issues and false propaganda – [claiming] that Islaam oppresses women, and that Muslim women have very little rights – they want to take her out of her home, and put her wherever they may want; even though the limits that Allaah has set [in the Qur'aan] are clear; as are His commands [concerning these matters], and as is the Sunnah (Guidance) of His Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. Allaah – the Most High – said:
“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the Believing women to draw their jilbaabs (cloaks) over their entire body. That will be better, that they should be known (as free and respectable women), so as not to be harassed, And Allaah is Ever-Forgiving, Most-Merciful.” [Soorah al-Ahzaab 33:59].
And – the Most High – says:
“And let the Believing women draw their khimaars (head-scarves) over their faces, necks and chests, and not to display their beauty, except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband’s fathers, or their sons, or their husband’s sons …” [Soorah an-Noor 24:31].
And He says:
“And when you ask them for something, ask them from behind a screen; that is purer for your hearts and their hearts.” [Soorah al-Ahzaab 33:53].
“And stay in your houses, and do not display yourselves like that of the times of jaahiliyyah (pre-lslaamic ignorance).” [Soorah al-Ahzaab 33:33].
The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:
“Beware of entering into the company of women.” A man from the Ansaar said: O Messenger of Allaah, what about the husband’s brothers and relatives! He replied: “The husband’s brothers and relatives are death!” 
He sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam also said:
“A man must not be alone in the company of a women, for indeed the third of them is shaytaan.” 
Ninthly: The Building of churches and temples in the Muslim lands and spending great amounts of wealth on them; beautifying them, making them very conspicuous and noticeable, and building them in the largest and best of places.
Tenthly: Radio stations set up solely for the purpose of calling to christianity and communism, spreading their [false] objectives. They intend to misguide, through such false ideas, the children of the innocent and naive Muslims – who neither understand, nor did they receive a sufficient Islaamic education. This is the case, in particular, in Africa where the Bible is published and distributed in plenty of hotels, etc. [They also] send missionary publications and false preaching to many of the Muslim children.
These are some of the means utilised by the enemies of Islaam today – from east and the west – in waging war against the Muslim’s thought, [intending by this ideological attack] to put an end to correct righteous thought, so that they are replaced by [false and] foreign ideas; whether eastern or western.
And – O noble reader – as you can see, these means involve tremendous efforts, enormous amounts of money and a multitude of soldiers. All of this is done in order to take the Muslims away from Islaam, even if they do not actually embrace christianity, judaism or marxism. Since their primary goal in doing this is to take the Muslims away from Islaam, so that when this stage is achieved, then whatever [misguidance] follows becomes far easier to implement.
However, despite all this we say: that Allaah will frustrate them in their hopes, and will nullify their plans – but only if the Muslims are sincere in their fight against them, cautious and alert to their plans, and obedient and upright upon their Religion; as Allaah said:
“But if you remain patient and become pious and obedient to Allaah, their plots will not harm you in the least. Indeed, Allah encompasses all that they do.” [Soorah Aal-lmraan 3:120].
