All perfect praise is for Allaah (alone). We beseech His peace and blessings upon the noblest of mankind.

In continuation, Sulaimon Abdulateef, the ‘ever’ intellectually impotent boy, wrote: “One of the sunnah of the prophet he against outrightly with the sayings of ulaamah and mazaahib is qobla zawwal, praying jumu’ah before noon. He against it totally by saying it’s not permissible to pray it and those who do so are takfiree and their prayer is invalid. I listened to the audio myself, though I had know of his saying before, but I only bring it out here because of the dodgy liar mumayyi’e boy, abu aaishah alodeomeey, and his likes who are his publicity officers on Facebook. The funny part is that he himself said and brought the hadeeth on it, but he against it with the opinions of hanafeeyyah, maalikiyyah, shafi’eyyah….. subuhanallah, he said the prophet did it truly but he doesn’t do it again. By Allah, Saudi should seized their certificate and deprive them useless dakaatir of the honours they gave, they are totally useless.”

Before treating the shenanigans of this boy, I will quote some of the explanations of Ash-Shaykh (Duktuur) Sharof Gbadebo Rooji (hafidhohuLlaah) in his tape titled ‘Sharh Muwatto Imaam Maalik (Fiqh forum) series 3’ Date: 09-06-2013; Venue: Ebute meta]

Dr Sharof said:

It was also reported in one of the narrations of Imaam Buhkooreey and Muslim, but the wordings (we are about to read) comes from (the report of) Muslim; the hadeeth of Sahl Ibn Sa’d As-Saa’idiy (rodiyaLloohu ‘anhu), he said: ‘We used not to take a nap or eat lunch until after Jumu’ah.’

This (hadeeth) implies that other than the Day of Jumu’ah, they (the Companions) would take a nap and eat lunch before Zuhr prayer. This means that they observe their Solaatul Jumu’ah prayers during the time of Zuhr prayer, but the Companions do not take a nap before Solaatul Jumu’ah as they do before Zuhr prayer (on days other than the Day of Jumu’ah). The lunch they eat before Zuhr prayer is taken after Solaatu Jumu’ah on the days of Jumu’ah. This is the implication of this hadeeth, and this is what majority of the scholars of Islaam said. They opine that the time of Solaatul Jumu’ah is the time of Zhuhr prayer. That is, the time of Solaatul Jumu’ah sets in when the sun passes the meridian (ba’ada Zzawaal). We must not observe Solaatul Jumu’ah before the sun passes the meridian (qobla Zzawaal). This implies that whoever prays Solaatul Jumu’ah before the sun passes the meridian has done a fruitless act, and will never earn any reward from Allaah. This is what majority of the scholars said. Aboo Haneefah, Maalik, Ash-Shaafi’i, and Ahmad (are from those scholars); Ahmad mentioned it in one of his narrations.

However, this same Ahmad has another narration in his Madhaab. He said there is no harm in praying Solaatul Jumu’ah before the sun passes the meridian. Imaam Ahmad said there is no harm (in praying Jumu’ah before the sun passes the meridian), (as) in one of the narrations in his Madhaab, (mentioning that it is permissible to) pray Solaatul Jumu’ah in the morning during the time of Duha prayer, before the sun passes the meridian.

Why did these scholars declare that we must not pray Solaatul Jumu’ah before the sun passes the meridian; that is the majority of the scholars of Islaam? The reason for their declaration is the hadeeth of Salamah Ibn al-Akwa’ (rodiyaLloohu ‘anhu); (their evidence is) the hadeeth of Salamah Ibn al-Akwa’ (rodiyaLloohu ‘anhu). He said: We used to pray (Solaatul) Jumu’ah with the Messenger of Allaah when the sun passed its meridian, then we would go back and try to seek shade. [Reported by Muslim] This Companion declared that they used to pray Solaatul Jumu’ah after the sun passes the meridian.

Also, ‘Umar (rodiyaLloohu ‘anhu) did the same. In the narration that follows this one, ‘Uthmaan did the same. One narration was also reported from the fourth Khaleefah, ‘Aliyy Ibn Abee Toolib (rodiyaLloohu ‘anhu), which is an authentic narration; it was mentioned that ‘Aliyy followed suit. So if it is clear (and understood); that is the statement of majority of the scholars…

In shaa Allaah, we shall continue with the explanations of our dear Shaykh in the next episode as we do not want to make the post too long.

But just for the records, the boy is now on a hot seat. He has been deleting my comments on his posts, and he tried to escape by unfriending me. Perhaps the next thing is to block me. May Allaah make him know his level and rectify his affairs (and mine too)!

We ask Allaah to show us the truth as being the truth and to grant us its following, and to show us falsehood as falsehood and to make it easy for us to abstain from it.

May prayers and peace be upon the noblest of mankind, his respected households and companions, and on the generality of the Muslims who follow them upon goodness till the end of time.
