The Sunnan, Customs, Innovations and Disobediences on ‘Eid – Shaykh ‘Aasim al-Qaryooti (may Allaah preserve him)
The Sunan, Customs, Innovations and Acts of Disobedience on ‘Eid

Shaykh ‘Aasim al-Qaryooti[1]

All praise is due to Allaah and may peace and salutations be upon the messenger of Allaah, upon his family, companions and whosoever takes him as patron.

Due to the drawing near of the happy occasion of ‘Eid al-Fitr, may Allaah grant it to us and the Muslims as a whole with happiness, dignity, goodness, blessing and brilliance, I remind my brothers, the Muslims, of a number of the customs and Sunan of ‘Eid, while highlighting some of the innovations and acts of disobedience that occur on it, and noting that Zakaat al-Fitr must be donated before the ‘Eid salaah. So I say, and with Allaah lays success:
The Sunan and Customs of ‘Eid

1) Making takbeer on the day of ‘Eid, starting from the beginning of night of ‘Eid and ending with the ‘Eid salaah. Allaah the Most High says { (He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allah [i.e. to say Takbeer] for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him} [al-Baqarah: 185].

And the established formats in which the sahaabah made takbeer are:

الله أكبر الله أكبر الله أكبر كبيرا
Allaahu akbar; Allaahu akbar; Allaahu akbar kabeerun

And also:
الله أكبر الله أكبر لا إله إلا الله ، الله أكبر ولله الحمد
Allaahu akbar, allaahu akbar, laa illaaha ill Allaah, Allaahu akbar, wa lillahil hamd

And other than these, from the formats of takbeer, and additions to them that we heard in the masaajid of the world are not authentic.

2) Making ghusl on the day of ‘Eid and wearing one’s best clothes and fragrance.

3) Eating dates, or something else, before leaving the home for the ‘Eid salaah.

4) Reciting the takbeer aloud when going to the ‘Eid salaah.

5) Going to the ‘Eid musallah via one route and returning via another.

6) Praying the ‘Eid salaah in the musallah, as it is the Sunnah of the messenger of Allaah sall Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam but doing so in the masjid for a reason is permitted.

7) The attendance of women, infants and children, without exception – including the woman on her period, those of marrying age and those who are chaste, as has been reported in Saheeh Muslim.

8) Performing the ‘Eid salaah.

9) Listening to the Khutbah that is given after the prayer.

10) Greeting one another due to the fact that it is ‘Eid. On the authority of Jaabir Bin Nufair, who said the companions of the messenger of Allaah sall Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam used to say to one another when they met on Eid, ‘Taqqabal Allaahu minna wa minkum’ [May Allaah accept from us and you].
From the Innovations on the day of Eid

1) Increasing upon the established formats of takbeer that have been reported on the sahaabah.

2) Making takbeer in the masjid, or musallah, in congregation in the form that there are 2 factions, one makes takbeer and the other answers. This is an innovated method and what is required is that each individual makes takbeer but if their voices happen to be unison, there is no harm. As for the way in which it is done, where1 group makes takbeer and the other listens until it’s their turn, this is an innovation.

3) Visiting graves on the day of ‘Eid and offering sweets, wreaths and the like upon graves. All this is innovation. As for visiting graves, it is permissible without any specifying conditions.

4) The sending of greetings cards, as this is from the culture and customs of the Chirstians. And we heard our shaykh, the ‘allaamah al-Albaani, may Allaah encompass him with his mercy, noting this.
From the Acts of disobedience on the Day of ‘Eid:

1) Men beautifying themselves by shaving their beards – what is obligatory at all times is to leave them.

2) The shaking of hands of non-mahram men and women – this is from the haram acts and major sins.

3) And from impermissible excessiveness is the squandering of wealth on fireworks without any benefit. It would be better to spend this money on the poor, destitute and needy – and how many they are and how needy are they!

4) The spreading of gambling in some countries on the day of ‘Eid, especially among the young. And this is from the major sins, so it is upon the fathers to watch over their children and warn them from it.

May Allaah accept from us and you

Deviations and words of Kufr of P J Zainul Abideen (PJ), Tamilnadu, India


1. P. Zainul Abideen (P.J) says that there are Mistakes in the Qur’an. And according to him, the Qur’an is preserved in the recitation only not in written form. For all this 1400 years, muslims have been using the written Quran with spelling and gramatical mistakes, though the recitation is correct and preserved.

2. P. Zainul Abideen (P.J) rejects 50 ahaadeeth from Saheehul Bukhari and Saheeh Muslim, saying that it contradicts the Quran. Later he rejected many saheeh hadeeth saying that it contradicts with sound logic and nature.

3. P. Zainul Abideen (P.J) says that only once Zakat given in a life time on a particular wealth is sufficient; and that one need not give Zakaath on it again every year.
4. P. Zainul Abideen (P.J) puts forward his view ahead of the understanding of the Sahaabaa, and thereby contradicts the methodology of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah. Also he condemns and defames the sahabah. Eg: He said about Umar (rali) that Umar (rali) had got “Confusion in belief” when he heard that the Prophet(S) died. He also had said that Amr bin Al Aas was “Criminal minded”. When people made this an issue and condemned him, he still said, ” If someone does the same act of Amr bin Al Ass, we will surely say he is Criminal minded. So what is wong in What I said?””
He puts forward the mistakes of Sahabah and claims that we can understand Quran and Sunnah, better than the sahabah. He says that the Salafees are doing taqleed of sahabah.

5. P. Zainul Abideen (P.J) denies Black Magic – Sihar, even if there are ahaadeeth found in Saheeh Bukhari and other books of hadeeth. He says that Sihr in Quran means “Trickery”. He challenges those who believe in Sihr ,to make Sihr upon him and prove that Sihr really exists.

6. He denies that Jinn can enter human beings. He rejects the hadeeth that support this view and makes taweel of Quran verses to suit his thoughts.

7. He recently, from 2010, suddenly said that he and his supporters discussed and came to a decision that “Evil Eye” is a superstition and belief in it is Shirk and Whoever believes EVil eye even after his explanation, are mushriks.

8. He claims recently that Belief in Sihr , is Shirk. And whoever believes that Sihr is more than trickery, even after getting his explanations, then he is a mushrik, and should not be prayed behind and should not be married.

9. He claims that Even if Bukhari, Muslim Imams believed in Sihr, they cannot be judged mushriks, as they did not get the explanation of PJ, as how it becomes shirk. If they had got his explanations and still belived in Sihr , then they would be mushriks also.

10. He made a translation of Quran and translated the verse “sihr” to “trickery” and fools around the common people who do not know arabic.

There are many more blunders of PJ, but I have just given the most deviated things.

Around 100,000 people of Tamilnadu, India, follow him as a great imam and think that His explanations are correct .

Note : In the early life of PJ, he studied islam in a deobandi school and then became a murtad denying the existance of Allah. Then later he accepted islam and started first preaching against Shirk and Bidah. Then he started all these above devient things.

The following is a letter made long ago from Tamil students of knowledge to the Mufti Aal Shiekh. Recently he has becomes more devient than the points mentioned in this letter.Mufti Aal Sheikh invited him to saudi. But he denyed coming to Saudi saying that he has some work to do. He claims to his people that Mufti actually called him as a cheif guest.

Editors Note:This post is particularly relevant to sri-lankan and tamil speaking community of Leicester as their are a hardcore of the followers of pj present in Leicester city.
They continue to promote him despite being advised and shown the severe errors of Zainul abideen.This bigoted following has caused a fitnah and a split within the sri-lankan community.
We ask Allaah the most high to guide these brothers and sisters back to his straight path. Ameen

Salafi-Ikhwaani, Ikhwaani-Salafi? Salafi Aqidah, Ikhwaani Manhaj?

Questioner: How correct is the saying that so and so is Salafi in aqidah but is on the manhaj of the Ikhwaan [al-Muslimoon]? Is manhaj not part of aqidah? And was this categorization known amongst the Salaf or was there a man who was Salafi in aqidah but not Salafi in manhaj?

Al-Albaani: They [i.e., aqidah and manhaj] are inseparable, Yaa akhi, and it is not possible that he can be an Ikhwaani Salafi. But he will be Salafi in some things and Ikhwaani in others, or Ikhwaani in some and Salafi in others. As for him being a Salafi in accordance with what the Companions of the Messenger عليه السلام were upon for example, then this is something it is impossible to bring together.

The Ikhwaan al-Muslimoon are callers … okay, what do they call to? Do they call to the da’wah of the Salaf as-Saalih? I.e., if we picture an Ikhwaani Salafi, will he be calling to the Salafi da’wah? The answer is no. Thus he is not a Salafi but in one aspect he might be and from another he won’t.

Questioner: [Asking a different question] what’s the difference between …

Shaikh Ubailaan: I called you on the phone…

Al-Albaani: Aah … [i.e., okay]

Shaikh Ubailaan: I asked you ….

Al-Albaani: Yes …

Shaikh Ubailaan: And you said to me, ‘Don’t let those who try to sew together the Salafi manhaj and the Ikhwaani manhaj worry you/be of interest to you.’

Al-Albaani: Yes, by Allaah.

Shaikh Ubailaan: So [in the end such people] never became Salafis or Ikhwaanis!

Al-Albaani: That’s right, Allaahu Akbar.

Questioner: What’s the difference between …
