Replying to the misguided Asrar Rashid. In the attached video he tries to distort what jihad is. According to him jihad is a response to hiraba or war mongering, and offensive jihad was really just preemptive jihad. The problem with this understanding is it flies in open
Contradiction with the Quran and Sunnah, as well as the practice of the Muslims for 1400 years. When you read the latter ayat on jihad they very clearly link kufr to the reason for fighting. Let's look at 9:29, there is no way you can read this Aya and say "yes this is about
Countering aggression", this is clearly about kufr. Asrar doesn't really provide an argument, so I don't see a need to refute "context" here. But just for the purpose of driving the point please find attached an extract from qadi Abu bakr ibn Al Arabi's tafsir: the reason for
Killing is kufr by this Aya as the exalted has said "till there is no fitna", so He made the goal the extinction of kufr textually. Clarifying that the reason for killing that makes fighting permissible is kufr. [End quote].

Now just because I know people like playing games
There is an opinion that the reason for killing is hiraba, but the reason for fighting is kufr. The people of desire try muddling it up and saying the reason for fighting is hiraba, which simply isn't true. Qadi Abu bakr ibn Al Arabi actually refutes even that positions, please
See attached image for the full statement of the qadi. He even addresses the argument that if what makes killing allowed is kufr then why don't you kill every kafir. He clarifies that it's for some benefit, like enslaving the women who will then be property and
Service.

If Asrar or anyone has an alternative opinion they should make a textual argument, they shouldn't just make claims. If they say, "we are just doing taqlid", then we ask of whom? The hanafi madhab doesn't say that peaceful none Muslim nations can't be fought. Which
Madhab says this?

It's important that we accurately convey what Islam teaches, should we think the scholars got it wrong then we should make a sound argument that should then be scrutinized. Enough of these pseudo scholars distorting Islam. I'm an academic I can't allow this!

Warning regarding @MMetaphysician (Jake). Jake is part of the whole dawah clique and in this thread I will reveal a conversation I had with him. Note, he was made aware action would be taken against him in the messages. This is not a thorough thread, just a brief warning.
Before getting into the messages, let us familiarize ourselves with the context. Some days ago I made a thread regarding a zindiq who happens to be an associate of Jake's. Please find that thread attached to this tweet.

Jake messaged me regarding the thread. I have highlighted the relevant aspects of his words.

Jake asked that I remove the post and claims that I am creating fitna. This is a major red flag. It is typical for the people of desire to say someone is creating fitna when their

Mahr prices as a function of supply and demand. Thread 🧵
In accordance with Islamic law marriages must have a mahr, this mahr has no upper limit although it does have a lower limit according to some of the schools. The price therefore is not fixed. Much talk has gone into what is a fair mahr value and what isn't, but
most this talk is of no consequence. What ultimately decides the mahr a girl gets is supply and demand. If there is an excess amount of girls wanting to get married, naturally the price should come down. But unlike inanimate commodities, girls are all unique and as such even if

I am often asked to read nonsense from Yaqeen institute, and I could tear apart their articles with ease, but people don't have good attention spans so I will limit myself to the abstract. @JonathanACBrown come listen and invite the stooge Asadullah Ali. 🧵
I have highlighted relevant statements, please see attached image.

"Muslims are accused of following the example of a man who had inappropriate relations with a 9-year-old girl." What is appropriate or inappropriate is subject to the moral outlook of an individual. The very
fact that people are getting doubts because of this shows that they have adopted the moral outlook of the kuffar, this is where the real problem lies. The problem is not with what Allah sanctioned and made allowed in the law, the problem is that Muslims have rebelled against the

Thread regarding the blasphemous statements of @_Khalilallah_

Please watch the attached video in full.

In this video this individual makes the claim that the marriage of the Prophet ﷺ to Aisha was disgusting, although not disgusting to the people of that time.
So he is saying, yes it's disgusting but the Sahaba and prophet ﷺ didn't know any better so engaged in this disgusting action so are excused. This position of his is truly disgusting. There is nothing disgusting about the actions of the prophet ﷺ!

He further makes it clear
That he isn't justifying it, and as such he must believe that it was unjustified, even if he excuses the prophet ﷺ due to an idea that back then people just weren't enlightened like the silly West. This kind of mentality isn't the mentality of a Muslim!!

He goes one step

Thread on morality 🧵
Morality is a belief, there is no objective way to say something is right or wrong outside of religion. You think its wrong to kill? Why? Maybe someone else thinks its right, so why should your opinion matter more than theirs? Perhaps you can argue from pragmatism but that
doesn't establish good and bad, it establishes beneficial and harmful.

Considering the above it is silly to try to judge the truth or falsehood of a religion by ever changing moral standards. So the fact that Islam does indeed contradict western morality doesn't prove Islam to

The way they deform the religion🧵
There exists amongst our ranks a people bent on dismantling our religion, they pretend to be with us, call themselves sunni, traditionalists, but they are not from us. These people, they play a game its a subtle game but a game it is. You see them try to introduce nuance where
there is no need. They will pretend bulugh is at 15 or 18 in Islam, but they conceal that is only the case when no sign of puberty has manifested. They will pretend Islam only preached defensive war, that Islam came to abolish slavery, and much more nonsense. These people are
