Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah and Sheikh Hamza Yusuf

Between ignorance and extremism


How do we defend the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon)? When we see people killed because they defended him. (peace and blessings be upon)

We defend with the good and fight with the good

He (peace and blessings be upon) stopped people from being killed. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon) gave a man a gift and asked, “Have I done good to you?” He said, “No.” One of the Companions (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) wanted to kill him. Afterwards the Prophet (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) gave him another gift and said, “Are you happy now?” He said, “Yes.” Now say this in front of my companions (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with them) because I want what’s in their hearts about you to be good. I am like a man who owns camels, I know my camels.”

The Spanish Umayyads caliphs would protect Christians who would go into mosques and write abuse about the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon). When they saw that the Christians were trying to re-ignite their religion by getting martyred by the Muslims. The Christians were converting to Islam in droves, they wanted to stop it

They didn’t want to react in a negative way towards Islam

Anything that calls to unity is good in the confines of the law

It’s against your interests to hurt people and this gives a bad image of Islam and Muslims

The Sheikh desires guidance for Bush and Blair

There is no defence for killing people

We need to be exposed to sound scholarship, we need to cure the people of their wrong beliefs

Guard your young people

When you pray with people don’t antagonise them

Imam Maliks (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) rule is that an Imam can only speak about what he acts upon, if he doesn’t its Maqru (disliked)

Someone said (sh. Hamza) homosexuality was ok

Another person came him (sh Hamza) and said, “I am at 69th excuse for you.” We are supposed to look for 70 excuses for your brother.
