Lesson Notes

  • Lesson 1

    Kashf ush-Shubuhaat – The removal of the doubts – Lesson 01 (29/02/20)

    The biography of Shaykh Mohammed ibn Abdul Wahaab

    Today’s lesson was an Introduction into the book which is written by Shaykh Al-Fawzan.

    Shaykh Al-Fawzan said. “Before we begin the actual book, we will speak about the author. So, the student of knowledge has an actual understanding of who the scholars are.”

    Today we covered:

    •Shaykh Mohammed ibn Abdul Wahaab was born in the area of Ul-Uwaynah in the year 1115 Hijri. It is the North of the city of Riyadh.
    •Shaykh Mohammed ibn Abdul Wahaab was raised in a household of knowledge
    oHis father was the judge of the area
    oHis grandfather, Suleman was the mufti and the scholars would return back to.
    oHis paternal uncles were all known of people of knowledge
    •From a young age Shaykh Mohammed ibn Abdul Wahaab was studying learning from his own father and uncles
    •He memorised the whole of the Qu’raan before the age of 10 years old from his father.
    •At a young age he was reading into the books of hadith and tasfeer. He had a good level of understanding and knowledge at a very young age.
    •His father and the other scholars were amazed at his level of ability
    •He used to engage in conversations with them to the extent that the elders would benefit from him.
    •Even after taking from his father and uncles he was still not content. He then travelled out for knowledge. It was known from the salaf that they would study with the scholars in their region. Then after taking from the local scholars they would travel out and seek scholars in other areas.
    •He then travelled to go and preform Hajj. After Hajj he went to Madinah and met with the scholars in the Prophets ﷺ mosque.
    •The Shaykh even went to Basara – Iraq to seek knowledge and benefit from the scholars there.
    •After all of his travelling he intended to go to Shaam and benefit from more of the Scholars. However, as he made his way to Shaam he was about to die as he ran out of food and drink. So, he then returned back to Basra and equipped himself with more knowledge.
    •It was at this point when the Shaykh began his time in giving dawah.
    •When he returned to his homeland, he saw the evil which was being committed. He considered that he cannot stay silent whilst this evil was taking place.
    •The scholars of the area at that time were mostly focused on issues of fiqh, not aqeedah.
    •As for the aqeedah of the salaf there were very few that were focusing on that.
    •Many of the people were given in by the Bid’ah and Shirk they were upon. Many of them were grave worshippers, seeking intercession with the dead. They used to ask from the trees as they believed that they had Barakah in them.
    •When he saw the state of the muslims he was inclined to give dawah to the people
    •The books of Shaykh Mohammed ibn Abdul Wahaab – He wrote many books. The greatest of them.
    oKitaab At Tawhid – The right of Allaah upon his Servants
    oKashf ash-Shubuhaat
    •There were many people who were against the Shaykh and some of the people made so called refutations of the Shaykh.
    •The Shaykh clarified all of there refutations and hence made the book – Kashf ash-Shubuhaat.
    •Ustaadh Taqweem explains and gives a definition of the word – Doubt. Kashf means to expose those doubts and to separate those doubts. To remove the covering of something to expose it.

    Introduction to the book.
    In the Name of Allāh, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
    Know — may Allāh have mercy upon you — that Tawhīd (Islāmic monotheism) is to single out Allāh (وتعاىل سبحانه (alone with all worship. It is the Religion of all of the Messengers whom Allāh has sent to His servants.
    The first of them was Nūh (السالم عليه .(Allāh sent him to his people after they began to exaggerate in their reverence towards the righteous people: Wadd, Suwā’, Yagūth, Ya’ūq and Nasr. The last of the Messengers was Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم ,(and he is the one who destroyed the depictions of these righteous men.

    Today we covered:

    •The basmallah
    oAll of the chapters of the Qu’raan start with the basmallah
    oIt is from the sunnah that when the Prophet ﷺ would send a letter to the people inviting them to Islam, he would always start with the basmallah
    oThe Scholars would always start their books with the basmallah
    oI seek aid and assistance from Allaah, in whatever you are going to do
    oAllaah is known as the greatest name of Allaah – The one who is worshipped
    oAr Rahman Ar Raheem – these are the names of Allaah and from them comes mercy
    oAllaah has more than 99 names – The Prophet ﷺ has told us in a hadeeth that He has more than 99 names.
    •An introduction from Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab
    oHave knowledge of this book and may Allaah have mercy upon you
    oTawhid is to single out Allaah alone with worship
    -Tawhid Al – Uloohiyyah (Worship) -Tawhid it is to single Allaah in all forms of worship.
    -Tawhid Ar Rububiyyah (Lordship)– Allaah is the only true creator, sustainer, planner and the only one that gives life and death of all that exits.

    In the Name of Allāh, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
    The first of them was Nūh (السالم عليه .(Allāh sent him to his people after they began to exaggerate in their reverence towards the righteous people: Wadd, Suwā’, Yagūth, Ya’ūq and Nasr. The last of the Messengers was Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم ,(and he is the one who destroyed the depictions of these righteous men.
    Allāh sent him to a people who used to worship, perform pilgrimage, offer charity, and they would remember Allāh often. But these people used to make some sort of the creation as intermediaries between them and Allāh. They would say: “We only desire from them that they bring us closer to Allāh. We only seek their intercession with Allāh.” They used to seek this from the likes of the Angels, ‘Īsā (السالم عليه ,(Maryam and other than them from the people of righteousness.

    Today we covered:

    •The evidences in the Qur’aan that affirm the categories of Tahwid
    •The whole book is in refutation of people who say that we can call upon 3rd party entities
    •How the categories of Tawhid connected
    •How shirk first began
    oAt the time of the people of Prophet Nuh, there were righteous people that lived in that 10th generation.
    oWhen they died the community were left grieving, in a state of loss.
    oShaytaan, for the first time in 10 generation he saw an opportunity to exploit the people at their loss.
    oThe shaytaan came to the people and reminded them of the righteous people and suggested that they should go to their graves so that you can be reminded how righteous they were and could build your eemaan.
    oShaytaan then mentioned that they should stay there for hours at a time to remember how pious they were. So the people starting to do as he suggested.
    oShaytaan then encouraged the people to make some figurines/ representations of them in your villages and gathering places. So that you can see them and remember and reflect.
    oShaytaan then waited for years to pass and came to the people again. He explained to them that the idols were made by their forefathers and they should worship them. So the people started to worship the idols and this is where shirk began.

    Even though these polytheists used to bear witness that Allāh is the sole creator with no partners; that no one provides for the creation other than Him; none grants life except Him; and none brings about death except Him. [They also believed that] none has any share in disposing the affairs of the creation other than Him; and that the seven heavens and the seven earths, and what is contained therein, all of it is subservient to Him and subject to His authority and overwhelming control.

    Today we covered:

    •It is not sufficient that a person can just say the Shahaadah. The shahaadah is of 3 things:
    oTo say it
    oTo understand the meaning

  • Lesson 9

    Kashf ush-Shubuhaat – The removal of the doubts – Lesson 9 (19/09/20)

    Examples of this is if a polytheist was to say to you [as doubts for his polytheism]: • [The verse]: “Surely for the awliyā’ of Allāh there will be no fear; nor will they grieve.” [Sūrah Yūnus 10:62] • Or that certainly the intercession is true and the Prophets possess a truly lofty station with Allāh. • Or when they cite some speech of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم (seeking to use it in support of their falsehood and you cannot understand the meaning of his speech. Then respond to his statement [with a general response] by saying: “Indeed Allāh has mentioned that the people whose hearts have deviated abandon the clear texts in order to follow the ambiguous texts. And what I have mentioned to you, showing that Allāh has informed that the polytheists affirm alRubūbiyyah and yet their disbelief occurred due to their devotion to the Angels, Prophets, and awliyā’. And that they justified their actions by saying: “They are our intercessors before Allāh,” [Sūrah Yūnus 10:18] and this is something indisputable for which no one can attempt to distort its meaning.

    Today we covered:

    • The importance of staying away from the people of innovation

  • Lesson 10

    Kashf ush-Shubuhaat – The removal of the doubts – Lesson 10 (26/09/20)

    1st DOUBT — The claim that the one who acknowledges Tawhīd ar-Rubūbiyyah and only intends intercession from the righteous is not a Mushrik
    From their statements is their saying that: “We do not make Shirk with Allāh rather we bear witness that no one creates or sustains; or can benefit or harm except Allāh alone with no partners. And Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم (cannot even bring about benefit or harm to himself, so how much more so ‘Abd alQādir or other than him? But I am sinful, and the righteous possess a lofty station with Allāh, so I beseech Allāh by way of them.”
    So answer him with the response that has already preceded and this is that those people whom the Messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم (fought against used to affirm all what you have mentioned. They used to admit that their idols did not control anything and that they only turned to them for their lofty station and for their intercession. Then recite for him what Allāh mentions in His Book and further clarifies.
    2nd DOUBT — The claim that worshipping other than Allah only occurs in worshipping idols and NOT with the righteous
    Today we covered:

    • The first Doubt:
    • The mushrikoon used to say, “We do not commit shirk alongside Allaah.”
    • They used to affirm the ar-Rububiyyah of Allaah
    • The intercession of the mushrikoon
    • Soorah yunis ayah 31 “Say to them, who sustains them and provides for them. Who is the one that brings life after death, surely they will say Allaah.”
    • Tawhid is not just restricted to just ar-Rububiyyah

  • Lesson 11

    Kashf ush-Shubuhaat – The removal of the doubts – Lesson 11 (03/10/20)
    2 nd DOUBT — The claim that worshipping other than Allah only occurs when worshipping idols and NOT with the righteous

    Then if he says: “These āyāt were revealed concerning people who worshipped idols, so how can you make the righteous like the idols?”, then respond to him as we have already mentioned. If he accepts that the disbelievers affirmed Rubūbiyyah (Allāh’s Lordship) for Allāh alone and that they only desired the intercession of those whom they turned to – but he desires to distinguish between his own actions and the actions of the disbelievers with what he has mentioned – then mention to him that amongst the disbelievers were those who called upon idols and those who called upon awliyā’, as Allāh says concerning them:

    3 rd DOUBT — The claim that seeking intercession (of the dead) is not Shirk If he then says: “The disbelievers seek to benefit from them while I bear witness that only Allāh is the One who gives benefit and harm and He is the disposer of affairs. I do not desire any benefit from anyone besides Him. And I know that the righteous have no share in this, but I turn to them in hope that Allāh will accept their intercession.”

    4 th DOUBT — The claim that they do not worship the deceased righteous – despite the fact that they call upon them or sacrifice for them

    Today we covered:

    • Prophet Easa will declare his innocence on the day of Judgement and he will highlight that he did not tell the people to worship him
    • The definition of taghoot
    • The mushrikoon did not just worship the idols, they called upon the dead also.
    • So the response to this is – “This is exactly the same statement as the disbelievers, then recite for him the statement of Allāh (وتعاىل تبارك” :(And those who take protectors besides Him say: We only worship them that they may bring us nearer to Allāh in position.” [Sūrah al-Zumar 39:3]
    • And there is the statement of Allāh (وتعاىل تبارك” :(They are our intercessors before Allāh.” [Sūrah Yūnus 10:18]”
    • Know that these three doubts are the strongest evidences they possess. So if you know that Allāh has clarified this issue in His Book and you have understood this matter well, then whatever follows after this will be easier.
    • The definition of intercession
