The most important verse in Qur'an which is the basis of decisions about Khums -خمس- (i.e.: 1/5) is this verse: 8:41 وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا غَنِمْتُم مِّن شَيْءٍ فَأَنَّ لِلَّـهِ خُمُسَهُ وَلِلرَّ‌سُولِ وَلِذِي الْقُرْ‌بَىٰ وَالْيَتَامَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ إِن كُنتُمْ آمَنتُم بِاللَّـهِ وَمَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَىٰ عَبْدِنَا يَوْمَ الْفُرْ‌...

The original author is Imam as-Suyuti who wrote a book titled "Al-Jami` as-Saghir." Shaykh al-Albani the muhaddith investigated the hadith in this book and added some more and wrote "Sahih wa Da`if Al-Jami` as-Saghir wa Ziyadatuh" and marked the Sahih and Hasan ahadith from other kinds. The hadith you quoted is indeed number 6040 in the Sahih portion of the ...

It is alleged that Abu Thawr — not, Sufyan al-Thawri, the founder of the extinct Thawri Madhhab — stated that there is nothing wrong with female-lead mixed gender prayers, but his opinion on this matter is not documented to be at large; rather, under specific conditions. In addition, the majority of scholars disagree with his conclusion. Background ...

First: How much knowledge does one need before they can gain the title of being an Alim or Alima? A muslim is some-one who believes in the Islamic faith; this however does not make them an alim. Similarly someone who believes in Christianity believes in Jesus and the Christian faith but this does not make them a theologian. Finally some-one who believes ...

This is not true. It was a false claim made my Dr. Hisham Kamali and he has been proven wrong from Ibn Taymiya's own literature. Ibn Taymiya made his views very clear in his book "As-Sarim al-Maslool 'ala Shatim ar-Rasool" 3/696 على خصوصها وكلاهما قد قام الدليل على وجوب قتل صاحبها والادلة الدالة على سقوط القتل بالتوبة لا تعم القسمين بل انما تدل على ...

I'm going to supply a deeper insight into the workings of the highest ranks in Shia clerical establishment as well as some information about the scholarly credentials of Ayatollah Khomeini and Ayatollah Khamenei since there are some interesting and controversial aspects with regards to their religious career that are necessary to highlight for more skeptical ...

Qiyas is not a bid'ah since it does not satisfy the conditions of a bid'ah. Sources of legislation in Islam Sources of Islamic legislation are the Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Prophet (ﷺ). Al-Shafi'i said in his book "Jimaa' Al-'Ilm" (جماع العلم): ولا يلزم قول بكل حال إلا بكتاب الله أو سنة رسوله (ﷺ) وما سواهما تبع لهما No point of view is binding ...

I will make some assumptions first prior to answering, since otherwise the answer would be excessively long: By "which scholars", I am assuming you are referring to hadith scholars only. By "denied ahadith", I am assuming denied that there is a hadith of that level (not denying the concept itself). By "being mutawwatir", I am assuming that the definition is ...

If you want a list of scholars that may end up short as salafi pretend having consensus on the matter ;): Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: The fact that a jinni may enter the body of a human is proven by the consensus of the imams of Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jama’ah (the larger body of Muslims who are upon the prophetic ...

Although this hadith seems to be missing a narrator (unknown narrator), it doesn't. That narrator is called سعد بن عبيدة Sa'd bin Obaidah, he was clearly named in other versions of the hadith you quoted. The version you narrated of that hadith is this: Narrated: (The translation doesn't mention the list of narrators) Abu 'Abdur-Rahman and Hibban bin '...

You can read the Arabic text of the hadith here: http://sunnah.com/bukhari/89#21 If you look at the full chain of narration, it goes: Musa b. Isma'il heard from Abu 'Awanah from Husain from Fulan (an unknown narrator) who said that Abu 'Abd ar-Rahman and Hibban were arguing ... So clearly this wasn't an incident from Imam al-Bukhari's life. Also the text ...

Basically any opinion quoting a minimum amount has no backup... but a logical approach would say it needs at least 4 as else the hadith would be considered as a kind of ahaad (well strictly speaking even here the definition between earlier and later scholars differ so that the whole matter seems a bit spongy). Imam as-Suyuti quoted 10 as a minimum. Just to ...

The relevant passage is on page 30, I'll post my own translation here (I'm a native German). The only changes I made myself are in { }. All other parentheses are as they are in the paper. Liwat only contra Deum {= against God} or also contra naturam {= against nature} Then in Ibn al-Humams commentary we find - without reference to a section by ...

Yes, the partial quote provided is by Ibn Taymiyyah, but as typically is the case, the quote is either chopped, taken out of context, or misquoted altogether. The quote is from Iqtidā' al-Ṡerāt al-Mustāqīm (Arabic: اقتضاء الصراط المستقيم لمخالفة أصحاب الجحيم), Dār 'Ālam al-Kotob (Arabic: دار عالم الكتب), Beirut, Lebanon: 1999, Vol. 2, pp. 276-279.

Yes, Sheikh Ibn Al-Uthaymeen said so but this is a partial quote with mistranslation. Here is the full quote with his explanation: قوله: " يؤذيني ابن آدم ": أي: يلحق بي الأذى; فالأذية لله ثابتة ويجب علينا إثباتها; لأن الله أثبتها لنفسه، فلسنا أعلم من الله بالله، ولكنها ليست كأذية المخلوق; بدليل قوله تعالى: {لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ ...

This doesn't answer your 3 questions sufficiently,, but addresses all of them: On Abdul Qadir al-Jilani and one of his works Abdul Qadir al-jili, al-Jilani or al-Kilani عبد القادر الجيلي أو الجيلاني أو الكيلاني is the author of a book with a similar title called al-Ghunya li talibi tariq al-Haqq (meanings: the sufficient for those who want to seek the path ...

I am not sure if there is a comprehensive list documented, or even if the full manuscript of any of the books below is available: Al-Kuna wa al-Asmā' is organized alphabetically, with each letter having its own chapter (very similar to Al-Bukhari's book with a similar title, but with Imam Muslim's views), which is used in biographical evaluations (Arabic: ...

The term ḥāfidh (Arabic: حافظ) when used in connection with the Qur'an refers to someone who has memorized and recited from memory the entire Qur'an under the supervision of a competent authority using one or more mutawātir recitations (e.g., Hafs through 'Āssim, or Warsh through Nāfi', etc.). When used in connection with hadith, it bears a different ...

Sahih Bukhari – Hadith no: 3461 بلغوا عني ولو آية Convey from me even if you know one verse The issue of judging a person to be a scholar raises several crucial points: As Yousuf Memon said above and if you look at the courses at an Islamic University like that of Madinah or Al-Azhar there are several branches wherein a person can specialize like - ...

When a number of Daeef (weak) hadiths are transmitted from multiple Companions, the hadith may reach the status of Hasan, and Hasan hadiths can be acted upon. Even when there are a number of daeef hadiths from a few sources, it indicates that it may be an act the Prophet (Saw) did, in which case it would be classed as mubah or mustahabb (allowed, or good ...

It is true that none of the Jews and Christians prostrate themselves before their rabbis and priests. They didn't worship them nor performed any prayers for them, as God is usually worshiped. But they followed and obeyed them so unconditionally, blindly and unquestionably that one cannot deny that they actually worshiped their rabbis and priests. ...

I would not call Lamya Kaddor an Islamic scholar. On her website she describes her higher education in regards to Islam as being a study of Arabic and Islamic Sciences at the German University of Muenster. A look at the university's website for a description of this 4 year degree course shows, that it is mainly based on studying Arabic language in a way ...

There is this book titled Al-Muhaddithat: The Women Scholars in Islam by Mohammad Akram Nadwi that provides details of several women narrators, transmitters and scholars of hadith as well as jurists and experts through various periods of time. I am not sure if it lists any original works solely attributed to women but it has examples of women collaborating ...

In fact both of them (Imam/Ayatullah Khomeini and Ayatullah Khamenei) are deemed as two very famous scholars/Marja'al-Taqlids (a source of emulation in religious practice... that can be regarded as a kind of authority, especially in religious issues)) in Shia Islam (albeit there are other famous/great ones as well). Of course, Imam Khomeini passed away (in ...

There is an open letter to al-Baghdadi by a body of notable Muslim scholars that touches on this. You can accessed it at: http://www.lettertobaghdadi.com.

The founder of the Ahmadiyya sect (who is a false prophet by the consensus of Muslims) believed that Buddha was a prophet as well as Krishna.
