Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi

Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi

 

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

 

Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi was born in 1378 A.H. (1959 A.D.) in the
province of Nablus, Palestine, he left the city with his family when
he was about 3 or 4 years old and settled in Kuwait, where he
completed his high school studies. He traveled about Kuwait and
Hijaz where he had a good affiliation with students of knowledge and
Sheikhs who taught him the keys of understanding Islamic knowledge.
Thereupon, he devoted himself to study the books of Sheikhul Islam
Ibn Taymiyyah and his student Ibnul Qayyim. Furthermore, during his
visits to Al-Madinah, he was attracted to the books of Sheikh
Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhab, his students, sons and grandsons, the
Imams of the Najdi Da’wah, which enrich the public and private
libraries over there. He traveled several times to Pakistan and
Afghanistan and there he met many brothers and Islamic groups who
came from various regions of the Islamic world. He was involved in
some educational and Da’wah activities there. While there, he wrote
a book called “Millat Ibrahim” (The Denomination and Creed of
Ibrahim). He finally settled in Jordan in 1992, two years before his
arrest.

This is our Aqeedah

This is our aqidah . Whoever possesses two eyes then let him read and
whoever possesses hearing then let him listen!? All praise
is for Allah, the Lord of the worlds, the Most
Compassionate, the Most Merciful, the Master of the Day of
Judgment. May the salah and the salam be upon the seal of
the Prophets and Messengers and upon all of his family and
companions. To proceed: This is a summary of what we believe
in and what we worship Allah with from the most important
areas of the din . I wrote it in my jail cell after it had
reached me that there were some people who were ascribing
things to us and putting words in our mouths that we have
never said; in particular, in the areas of kufr and iman .
Before this, I was never concerned with writing about the
likes of this subject. That is because our scholars have
sufficed and fulfilled in that.

 

Millat Ibrahim

We present to the English reader, Millat Ibrahim, by the noble Sheykh
Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi, May Allah preserve him. Herin, the
author draws several parallels between the form of idolatry
in the time of the Messenger of Allah salalhu alahi wassalam,
and that which the apostate regimes have instituted from
fabricated laws and methodologies of falsehood in the lands
of the Muslims.

Democracy – A Religion

Recently, a debate between our religiously committed brothers has
erupted on the Internet regarding the permissibility of
participating in democratic elections in the West. An
article entitled ?To Vote or Not to Vote? and another
entitled ?Why Vote, and Who to Vote For?? in particular have
raised several points, which we feel are necessary to
address as well as certain others related to Democracy and
participation in the electoral process in general. In this
short address, we will attempt to offer some clarification
on the issue with the hope of refuting some claims and
correcting some errors of the authors of these articles as
well as addressing some of the more common mistakes related
to this topic overall. In approaching the topic of Muslims
participating in democratic elections, certain introductory
points must be made. It is our intention to be very brief in
these points as to avoid dwelling upon them and we only
mention them for later reference in discussing the core
issue of dispute regarding the permissibility of
participating in the democratic elections.

..So, Do Not Fear Them!

By Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi. “So do not fear them, and fear Me if you
are believers”. An Encouragement to Be Firm on the Truth,
Openly Express It, and to Not Fear the Helpers of the
Tyrants. Translated by Abu Sabaya.

Expecting the Best from Allah

By Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi. In accordance with how good your
expectations of and hope in Allah are and how truthful your
reliance and trust are in Him, Allah will not betray your
hopes in the least, as He does not betray the hopes of those
who hope and does not cause any effort to go to waste.
