Colorado Imam: Vengeance & killing when weak is detrimental to the Mission

Colorado Imam Karim AbuZaid is inspiring his community with a lecture that was Streamed live on Jan 29, 2021 Below is a partial transcript.

Now when you go through as a believer, as a follower, of a mission and by the way this could apply to your individual life, by the way, doesn’t have to be on the community level. It can be on an individual level. Sometimes we face that. Some people are getting on us – giving us a hard time. They tell you when you go through what I described you end up developing three psychologies, three moods, three trends which are very destructive to the cause. It will affect you. Number one, giving up. Don’t give up. That’s the title I choose for this lecture don’t give up. Number two, giving in. Okay, I’m with you now I can’t handle the pressure. So, I’m with you. Here is the third one which you need to pay attention too. Being vengeful… I’ve got to get these guys. They are bad. Actually this is wrong too. When you’re weak you shouldn’t do it. A lot of people don’t understand what Musa said to the Israeli when he kept killing an Egyptian every day. What’s wrong with you? We are weak. Can’t you pay attention here? Musa said that to him. And when he said that to him he thought he was going to kill him too. During the time (of weakness) How are we supposed to be? (Gestures – Bows head in humility) May Allah forgive you brother.

Colorado Imam Grants Permission to dry limbs with a towel citing Islamic doctoral evidence

Colorado Imam Grants Permission to dry limbs with a towel citing Islamic doctoral evidence

Senior Colorado Imam Karim AbuZaid, during a call in show, gives clear clarification regarding the permissibility of using a towel after symbolic ritual of washing before prayer. It was uploaded to the Imam’s YouTube channel on April 6 2021.

Question: Is it okay to dry your face arms after making wudu? (Symbolic washing)

Answer: It is permissible. What is the base for that? Is you know…. When the Prophet PBUH at one time he made wudu and she was standing there holding a towel, a piece of cloth, in order to dry his hands after wudu. You see look how Bukhari understood this hadith. Do you know what Bukari said? This is an evidence that you could dry your body parts after wudu. Why? If it was not permissible then his wife would not have strood up with a towel. You’re getting that? Even though the Prophet said NO I am not going to dry my limbs. You see this is how you look at the evidence.

Question

Is it permissible to dry oneself with a towel or handkerchief after doing wudoo’?.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

It is permissible, after doing wudoo’, to dry the parts of the body washed in wudoo’, because the basic principle is that this action is permissible. 

Ibn Qudaamah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Mughni (1/195): There is nothing wrong with drying the limbs with a towel after getting them wet during ghusl and wudoo’. This is what was narrated from Imam Ahmad. It was also narrated that ‘Uthmaan, al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali, Anas and many other scholars used a towel after doing wudoo’, and this is the more correct opinion, because the basic principle is that it is permissible. End quote. 

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about the ruling on drying the parts of the body that are washed in wudoo’

Colorado Imam Karim AbuZaid: LGBTQ’s “Evil” is Influencing & infiltrating Black Lives Matter & Muslim Community

Imam Karim Abuzaid is the imam of Colorado Muslim Society (CMS). He is a PhD candidate in Islamic Studies with the American Open University of Alexandria, VA. His studies are concentrated in Fundamentals of Islam and Quranic and Hadith Sciences. Imam Karim is a Hafiz Al-Qur’an, having committed the complete text of the Qur’an to memory. Below is a partial transcript of a lecture that Premiered September 18, 2020

The scheming. They are not going to come to you straight forward. And that is the approach of evil always. Like Satan said to Adam ‘just see the tree. Do not eat from the tree is is forbidden. We are dealing with that scheming here. I read in some history how the the ABGT Groups in America managed to be accepted in our community in a 20 year’s time… We cannot inflict any harm upon them whatsoever. We cannot do that. That is a disclaimer before I even speak. That we are not inciting hate towards that particular group. No! I am trying to protect my children... Number one, brothers and sisters in Islam, the source of what is right, what is wrong is Allah. Not voting, not democracy, Allah tells me that intercourse has to be done within wedlock, in marriage between a man and a woman, that’s it… He is trying to tell you that the source of character, morality, the source of what is right and what is wrong, what is accepted and what is not accepted is Islam, is AllahAssured us, asserted us that he created us male and female. There is no third. There is no other. I had an interview with a 25-year experienced teacher in the public school system, not a Muslim. I am not belittling her– she can choose whatever religion she wants. Not a Muslim. The amount of strategizing, the amount of scheming to confuse your children in the public school system about their gender. Here is the interesting piece – they associate this with Black Lives Matter. We know that there is some issue with treating the African American community in America. We have seen George Floyd. …. If your guy is going to push your agenda lets include that agenda too. So, part of the Black Lives Matter curriculum to spread good treatment of African American community is this – is to include the LGBT groups. If you are going to push this one, we have to be there because we are oppressed too… Emphasize the gender to you boys. Come on, man – you are a boy, man! What colour is this you are wearing? pink?…. Sports. Basketball is a good thing…. That is a good training, basketball, swimming, archery, horseback-riding. Do not teach them golfing. Teach them something that fits. Girls, teach them sewing. You’ve got to keep them busy

Question

What is the punishment for homosexuality? Is there any differentiation between the one who does it and the one to whom it is done?

al-Tirmidhi (1456), Abu Dawood (4462) and Ibn Maajah (2561) narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas  said: The Messenger of Allaah  said: “Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.”. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi. 

The Sahaabah were unanimously agreed on the execution of homosexuals, but they differed as to how they were to be executed. Some of them were of the view that they should be burned with fire, which was the view of ‘Ali and also of Abu Bakr, as we shall see below. And some of them thought that they should be thrown down from a high place then have stones thrown at them. This was the view of Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him). 

The scholars differed as to whether it is to be punished more severely than zina, or whether the punishment for zina should be more severe, or whether the punishments should be the same. There are three points of view: 

Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq, ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib, Khaalid ibn al-Waleed, ‘Abd-Allaah ibn al-Zubayr, ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abbaas, Maalik, Ishaaq ibn Raahawayh, Imam Ahmad according to the more sound of the two reports from him and al-Shaafa’i according to one of his opinions, were of the view that the punishment for homosexuality should be more severe than the punishment for zina, and the punishment is execution in all cases, whether the person is married or not.

Now we know from the Hadith that when Prophet Eesa (Jesus) comes and rules out of Jerusalem, rules the world and establish the Sharia, and no other religion will be accepted but Islam. He’s going to break the cross kill the swine the pig. Now we know that there will be almost a thousand years of peace after that. Because Islam is in control there is peace and Earth now there will be good years.

al-Nawawi said: The correct view concerning this is that he will not accept it, and he will not accept anything from the kaafirs disbelievers but Islam. If any of them offer the jizyah that will not make him stop fighting them. Rather he will not accept anything but Islam or death. This is the view of Imam Abu Sulaymaan al-Khattaabi and other scholars

Colorado Imam Warns  Intellectual Thoughts Can Cause Muslims to leave Islam

Colorado Imam Warns Intellectual Thoughts Can Cause Muslims to leave Islam

A lecture warning of the danger in using intellect to understanding Islam was uploaded to You Tube in September 2019 by Colorado Imam Karim AbuZaid, who has a PhD in Islamic Studies from Egypt, and is often invited to lecture in capital cities across Europe. In the summer of 2018, Imam AbuZaid gave a weekend lecture on the book Islamic Guidelines for Individual & Social Reform by Sheikh Muhammad bin Jamil Zino, a Syrian-born Salafi Muslim scholar at Salaheddin Islamic Centre in Scarborough, ON. Canada which is led by Dr. Aly Hindy, father of Imam Ibrahim Hindy  who also hosted Shaikh AbuZaid at his mosque Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre in Mississauga, ON. Below is an excerpt of Imam AbuZaid’s lecture.

What makes you a believer? I’m going to tell you four words in Arabic. If you memorize them in Arabic and understand them that’s enough. But I have to explain them in English. Four words that’s what makes you a believer. And this is the summary of those five verses – belief and implementation. That’s what the believer does. This is the whole religion of Islam. That you make ‘belief’ of the unseen. What is ‘belief’? Believe beyond any shadow of doubt. You’re not skeptical and you don’t try to use your intellect, your aql [intellect] to figure out how this unseen is… Me and Abu Bakr [the first of the Rashidun Caliphs] and Omar  [the second of the Rashidun Caliphs], we believe in this even though it doesn’t make [sense]. You see what did they try to do here? They tried to do what? To employ their Aql [intellect], their intellect in a matter of what? Unseen. If you’re going to do this, man, come on. There is a man who is chained in an island somewhere in earth called the [Dajjaal] Antichrist, hadith Muslim. Go ahead and blow your Aql [intellect] now. How he [Antichrist] eats? How he drinks? Where is he? We have all the satellites. We went all over earth now. We have all the satellites now. Figure out where this man [Antichrist] is? No! You’re not supposed to figure out where he is. Who cares where he is. Just deal with him when he comes out, man. That’s not your job to figure out how he is. Why do you employ your Aql [intellect] in that area? And confuse youth and children? Confuse people. That’s ABC Islam. ABC Islam. Ok, you know what, we believe with certainty, with no doubt, that Prophet Issa [Jesus], peace be upon him, is up there alive. Tell me how is he up there? In which heaven and how he eats? How he drinks? How he sleeps? This is the tasdiq [belief]. Imagine this and just to show you that when you employ that methodology of understanding or dealing with the unseen, this may lead you to leave Islam. During the time of the prophet [Muhammad], PBUH, imagine this. In Mecca the messenger of Allah wakes up in the morning and he tells the people of Quraish: By the way guys, I went to Jerusalem last night and I came back. Can you imagine? He didn’t even say that I went to the seventh heaven. He didn’t say to see the Miʿraj [The event of Isra and Mi’raj marks the night that Allah took Mohammad on a journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and then to heaven]. He just told them what [happened]. Come on, come on, man, what is this? Imagine some Muslims at the time, some sahaba [companions] left Islam. Why? Because they did what? That’s the danger here. No! Look, they went to Abu Bakr. They went to Abu Bakr. What was his question? What was his question? Did he say that? That’s all what you have to worry about. That’s all what you are entitled to do. You make sure that this is in the Quran. If it is in the Quran then this is correct. Verify the Sunnah, the Hadith.
