Family Matters

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) on Rights of Husband and wife

Imam Ahmed about rights of husband and wife.jpg

In the Name of Allah, the Abundantly Merciful, the Intensely Merciful.
All praises belong to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.
O Allah, send Your prayers upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdis.
Peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be upon you.
{And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy} [Holy Qur’an 30:21]
The rights and duties of the husband and wife towards each other:
Unfortunately, many men, especially in the Arab and Islamic countries, believe that it is a must and incumbent upon the wife, and that she is compelled against her will, to do everything her husband requests from her or commands her to do regarding the house and the children. But many people do not know that the only right which the husband can demand from his wife, is Nikah (intercourse), and it is an obligation upon the wife, she must make it available for her husband whenever he demands it. Rather, it is incumbent upon her to try to show love and affection for her husband everyday so that she may move his feelings towards her. And it is extremely forbidden that she refuses or slackens or prevents her husband from her, rather if she does that the Angels of the Earth and the Heavens will curse her, God forbid.
As for the rest of the matters. such as disciplining/raising the children and feeding them for example, and taking care of them, or the rest of the house work, are not an obligation upon the wife. And she can abstain from practicing those tasks, rather she for example can ask for a reward/payment in exchange for those tasks. And this is a right which has been granted for her by the religion of the True Islam. Because when both sides made a contract, they made a contract in a paper or orally on one matter, and that is Nikah (intercourse) and Tamatu’ (pleasure), and originally it is called "Nikah contract", and it was not a contract to raise children or take care of the house for example or any of the other matters which are known to everyone.
As we said, the wife is not obligated to do those tasks/chores, and she does not take any sins if she refuses to do those tasks. But if she was gracious enough and did those tasks, without anything in return, for the sake of Allah, then she will have a great reward with Allah swt, which is a reward that only Allah swt can enumerate for her. But in this case, the right of the husband to demand intercourse and pleasure will change, because when the wife does the house work or the daily house chores like cleaning and cooking, she will be exhausted by the end of the day.
There is a command for the fiancé, and that is that he must agree with his fiancee about this matter, meaning taking care of the children and breastfeeding them and doing the house work which is known to everyone, before they make the Nikah contract. If the fiancee agreed to the conditions of her fiancé, then it will be incumbent upon her to do those tasks, just as intercourse and pleasure are incumbent upon her. And if she refuses that, here the fiancé or the man has the choice to leave his fiancee or to continue with her and marry her upon the Nikah and Tamatu’ contract, or upon a part from what they agreed to according to the agreement of both sides.
Here there is also a right for the husband when the wife refuses to do some or all the house chores, and that is that he has the right to marry a second wife, but on the condition that this second wife agrees to all the man’s conditions which the first wife refused.
As for the believing married couples who believe in what we say from the verses of Allah The Almighty and the path of Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad sawas, who were married before this statement came out and before this matter was clarified, then they can either re-do the agreement, or leave the matter as it was, keeping in consideration the love/affection and the humane mercy, and to not use the spouse for personal interests.
And from the duties of the husband towards his house and wife and children, is that he makes available for them an honorable living and to provide for them their necessary needs of food and drink and clothes, and the rest of the urgent needs, in a reasonable way within the limits, and without wastefulness nor extravagance.
And if days pass and the husband did not spend on his wife, the expense of that time period would remain in his liability whether she asks for it or not.
And I would like to clarify something which is extremely important and extremely wonderful, concerning the justice of the Creator The Almighty. And that is that the hard work/effort which the father or the one who raises, exerts on his household, is a blessing from the blessings of Allah the Almighty..that Allah makes in his children goodness and blessings, and makes the selves and the souls which are raised from the sweat (the hard work) of the father incline towards goodness more than evil, and it makes and strengthens ardency and magnanimity and continuous love and mercy towards their parents within them, except the ones whose clay are impure, and refuge is in Allah.
So from here, my beloved pure believing sons, I strongly urge you to work and strive to feed your children from your efforts and [from the work of] your own arms. And sustenance is upon Allah the One The Indivisible The Sustainer. And all praises belong to Allah the Lord of the worlds.
And let all the men know that whoever does not spend on his children from money which he earned from his work and effort, should not await any goodness from his progeny towards him, because when the father of the children spends on them from money which is not his or which he did not rightfully earn, or when someone else spends on them, Allah The Almighty will lift from their hearts the mercy and love towards their father.
Indeed this life has a scale which The Just, The Almighty, The Abundantly Merciful, The Intensely Merciful, weighs with. And all praises belong to Allah the Lord of the World.

Getting the divorced woman married more obligatory than the virgin

"Do you know that it is obligatory on the family of the divorced woman or the widow that they get her married, more than the virgin woman?
Indeed Allah The Exalted has placed in us the instinct of the sexual desire, and it would be a blessing if it is Halal (permissible). And if it is Haram (impermissible) it would be a malice and a revenge and a sickness and a poverty and a hell fire which is thirsty for the one who performed it.
And it is Haram (impermissible) for us to deprive ourselves from it, because it is a blessing which its condition is like all the desires of the human being." - Translation of a post by احمد احمد from 10.07.2016

Question About Divorce

QUESTION:
"May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you
In the Name of Allah the Abundantly Merciful, the Intuitively Merciful
All praise is for Allah the Lord of the Worlds O Allah sends Your prayers on Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdi
Let me ask you a question insha'Allah. My husband divorced and now he is doing 3 cycles of menstruation, I would have liked to know insha'Allah if he had to free me and if I could remarry insha'Allah?"

ANSWER:
"In the Name of Allah, the Abundantly Merciful, the Intuitively Merciful
All praise is for Allah the Lord of the Worlds
O Allah sends Your prayers on Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdi
May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you
Iddah (the waiting period) of the divorce of the non-pregnant woman is three states of purity. And the state of purity which separates the divorce and its menstruation is counted as a state of purity as short as it is. That is, her iddah (waiting period) ends after she sees the third blood, meaning the third menstruation. This means you can get married. May Allah swt grant you success." - Ahmed Al-Hassan / Shawwal 1436" – See Answer on Black Banners Forum

QUESTION:

Islamic Dresscode & Appearance

Wearing Niqab

Niqab.jpg

QUESTION:
"Is wearing Niqab Mustahab for women? Did Fatima AlZahraa (as) used to wear Niqab?"

ANSWER:
Fatima Al-Zahraa (as) used to wear Niqab from her head till the five toes of her purified feet. But Niqab is not obligatory. Yes it is very Mustahab."See answer on Black Banners Forum

As you may see, there is a huge contradiction between these two answers. And when you look to the AhlulBayt (as) sermons and hadiths, you will realize that Hz. Fatima, Zaynab (pbut) etc. were covering their faces with niqab:

Lady Zainab (as):
When Lady Zainab (peace be upon her) was present in the court of Yazid, what did she say to him? History records that she said: “Is it the custom of justice, oh accursed son of the ‘Released persons’, that you keep your ladies and concubines behind the veils (with respect) and at the same time you captivate and parade the helpless daughters of the Messenger of Allah as prisoners? You snatched their veils and exposed their faces, and displayed them from one land to another, being viewed by those at watering places as well as those who guard your forts, with their faces exposed to the looks of everyone, near or distinct, low or elite, having none of their men with them nor any of their protectors?” – Al-Tubrusi; book of Ihtijaj part 2; p.34

Lady Fatima (as):
Abu Nu'aym reports in Hilyat Al-Awliya v.2. p.40, that Anas Ibn Malik said: "The Messenger of Allah (S) asked: `What is best for women?' We did not know how to answer the Prophet, so Ali (as) asked Fatima about the Prophet's question. Fatima answered: It is best for them not to see men and not to let men see them. Ali returned to Allah's Messenger and conveyed Fatima's answer to him. When the Prophet had heard the answer, he said: Surely she has spoken the truth, for she is part of me.'

Is there a medicine for this disease? Firstly Hijab is obligatory which is a must, and there is no excuse for whoever takes off the Hijab.

The Distortion of the Holy Quran

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan had mentioned several times that even the Holy Quran, which the Muslims were taught to believe to be 100% accurate due to special divine protection, has been tampered with, too.

The cursed Illegitimate Office has went so far to publish allegedly "corrected" versions of e.g. Ayat ul-Kursi or Surat Qadr - which the true Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan, leader of the Black Banners of The East denounced as falsehood.

Anyhow, this is a very heavy matter and hence it is not being rushed by the Imam (as).

Correctness of Ayat ul-Kursi

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan was asked:

QUESTION:
"Is the verse of the throne how we learned in the dawa or is it as it is written in the Qur'an?"

ANSWER:
No by Allah it is as it is written in the Qur'an."See answer on Black Banners Forum

The Distortion of the Holy Quran will be talked about at ​it's appropriate ​time

On Paltalk a ​guest ​by ​the ​name ​jasim443 ​asked the Imam (as): ​
"Brother, ​I ​directed ​two ​questions ​to ​the Imam: ​The ​first ​is: ​Can ​the ​Imam ​inform ​us ​of ​the ​places ​of distortion/corruption ​in ​the ​holy ​Qur’an? (...)"

Imam ​Ahmed ​Al-Hassan ​(as) answered:
"I ​believe ​that ​the ​answer ​to ​that ​question ​about ​Qur’an will ​not ​benefit ​you. ​By ​Allah ​the ​answer ​will ​surely ​not ​benefit ​you ​and ​you will ​be ​confused ​about ​matters."

So ​the ​guest ​replied: ​
"Do ​not ​fear ​for ​me ​my ​brother, ​I ​want ​to ​understand ​the true ​religion ​and ​it ​is ​the ​core ​of ​the ​Dawa ​whether ​the ​people ​like ​it ​or ​no."

So ​Imam ​Ahmed ​Al-Hassan ​(as) ​said:
"Brother, ​did ​you ​read ​the ​Quran ​as ​a book? ​Meaning ​have ​you ​read ​it ​as ​a ​book ​while ​lifting ​the ​holy ​halo ​off ​of ​it, and ​read ​it ​as ​a ​researcher? ​Do ​that ​if ​you ​haven’t, ​do ​it ​then ​return ​to ​me after ​you ​read ​it ​more ​than ​once.
​At ​this ​time ​you ​will ​find ​at ​least ​more ​than one ​place ​of ​distortion/corruption ​in ​it.
"

So ​the ​guest ​replied: ​
"If ​the ​normal ​researcher ​can ​find ​the ​places ​of distortions/corruptions, ​then ​what ​is ​the ​reason ​for ​the ​presence ​of ​the ​Hujjah Imam?"

So ​Imam ​Ahmed ​Al-Hassan ​a.s ​replied:
"And ​did ​the ​Hujjah ​come ​for ​this ​only? I ​said ​to ​you, ​if ​you ​understood ​my ​words, ​that ​you ​will ​find ​more ​than ​one place ​of ​distortion, ​but ​you ​will ​not ​find ​all ​the ​places ​of ​distortions."

Someone ​said: "​My ​master, ​allow ​me ​to ​ask: ​Do ​we ​now ​stop ​reading ​the Qur’an ​after ​your ​answer ​now? ​And ​I ​know ​that ​you ​are ​the ​Qur’an."

So ​Imam ​Ahmed Al-Hassan ​(as) ​said:
"Please ​do ​not ​ask ​these ​questions ​during this ​time about ​the ​Qur’an ​said: ​If ​the ​nation, ​after ​a thousand ​years ​of ​misguidance, ​does ​not ​find ​an ​answer ​from ​the ​Hujjah Imam, ​then ​when ​will ​that ​be?! ​And ​has ​Allah ​appointed ​him ​for ​anything other ​than ​for ​this ​matter ​which ​is ​to ​guide ​to ​the ​true ​religion?"

So ​Imam ​Ahmed ​al-Hassan (as) ​said: "Brother ​Jasim, ​every ​matter ​has ​its appropriate ​time. ​Do ​not ​rush. ​If ​you ​think ​that ​you ​can ​handle ​it, ​then ​other than ​you ​can ​not ​handle ​it." - See Paltalk transcript as pdf

Do not help this government, not even with one stroke of a pen, for they are the reason for your calamities and sufferings and humiliation, and they are the ones who have stolen and plundered the good things of this country, and they are the ones whom have killed and imprisoned the Ansar of Allah and made them homeless. I hope that you do not forget this, may Allah grant you success, like the immoral traitors whom have forgotten, or have pretended to have forgotten, who cooperated with this criminal immoral government whose teeth and hands are still covered with the blood of the believers."
