The People of Truth are in a State of Strangeness

Shaykh Ahmed -may Allaah preserve him- said:

The messenger of Allaah said:

بَدَأَ الإِسْلَامُ غَرِيبًا وسَيَعُودُ كَمَا بَدَأَ غَرِيبًا فَطُوبَى لِلْغُرَبَاءِ

Islam initiated as something strange, and it will revert to being strange. So good tidings for the strangers.

I say; in this narration is (proof) that the people of truth are in a state of strangeness and in a state of being unwanted and a minority.

And for this reason, this makes them firm and makes them patient with the harm.

And it also makes it so the people do not become fooled with the majority; some people are fooled by the majority and they boast about it.

(They say) Bayaanaat, Bayaanaat, Bayaanaat…

It is as if the United Nations has granted him what he wants. What is this matter!?

Shaykh Ahmed -may Allaah preserve him- said:

Amazing is the condition of some of the people; yesterday he says if everyone on the earth was to authenticate one man, and a scholar whom one person has warned against, (he will) take the scholar who was warned against as an evidence.

So that the speech of this one scholar can be considered and he will not look to all of the people of the earth (I.e. what they agreed upon).

And today he leaves all the evidences, and he looks to that which the people say in the name of “Democracy.”

The word is that which the people say and they want, and there is no consideration for the evidences and proofs. So compare between the two.

And this is from blundering.

And it is from the matter in the statement of Hudhaifah – رضي الله عنه – when he said:

“If one of you wishes to know if the fitnah has afflicted him or not – if the fitnah has afflicted him or not – then let him look, if he sees as permissible that which he used to see as impermissible then the fitnah has afflicted him. And if he sees as impermissible that which he used to see as permissible, it has afflicted him.”

So if his statement which he used to say yesterday changes, and it becomes different today, then this is a proof that he has fallen into (the fitnah) – and we ask Allaah for safety and well-being – of course this is (if he does this) without proof and without evidence, and for there to be in the matter (of him falling into the fitnah), proofs and evidences and attestation – May Allaah bless you-.

Shaykh Ahmed -may Allaah preserve him- said:

And I have seen from that which I have seen in days past, a publication in which some the foolish ones were boasting, saying: That Shaykh Muhammed Farkoos has spoken ill of fifty-five scholars worldwide – or other than that – from callers to Allaah and the students of knowledge.

We say: Is the example in the majority!?

Because the Dajjaal has many followers!

Is the example in the minority!?

The example is in the proofs and evidences, if Shaykh Muhammed Farkoos has with him the evidence and with him the proof, even if all of the people of the earth unite against him, and this will not be – If Allaah wills – then the example is by way of the truth.

إِنَّ إِبْرَاهِيمَ كَانَ أُمَّةً قَانِتًا لِّلَّهِ حَنِيفًا وَلَمْ يَكُ مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ

Verily, Ibrahim (Abraham) was an Ummah (a leader having all the good righteous qualities), or a nation, obedient to Allah, Hanifa (i.e. to worship none but Allah), and he was not one of those who were Al-Mushrikun (polytheists, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, and those who joined partners with Allah).

He was alone from his – عليه الصلاة والسلام – people, that did not harm him.

And because of this, we say to Shaykh Muhammed aal-Farkoos, and we say to the likes of him from amongst the scholars: the congregation is that which is in agreement with the truth even if you are alone, and we say to him: You are in (a state of) strangeness so have patience, because Islam initiated as something strange, and it will revert to being strange, so good tidings for the strangers.

I ask Allaah to make us all from the strangers whom the Prophet – صلى الله عليه وسلم – prayed for in his statement, “So good tidings for the strangers.”

So ponder – May Allaah bless you – over these proofs.
