Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. Islam is absolutely pure. It cannot tolerate that other cultures and religions be merged or mixed with it. Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) very clearly explained to his people that we are totally different from you and have nothing to do with your beliefs and ways. There will be perpetual enmity between us until you conform to our standards. Allah Ta‘ala says that this is a beautiful example for you to follow. 

2. Islam is second to none in showing kindness and compassion. We are commanded to be kind to every living creature, let alone human beings. Muslims showed kindness and upheld justice even when dealing with their enemies at the time of war. There are numerous examples of this nature in the life of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). 

3. A person can make big claims about himself, but his real personality comes out when he is in a crunch and there is a clash. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) showed exemplary character to his enemies even at these crucial moments. 

4. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) accepted the partial terms of the disbelievers in Hudaibiyyah although the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were prepared to fight. This explains to us that Muslims are not people who love fighting and killing, rather this is done only as a last resort. 

5. We are not allowed to have a friendship with the disbelievers or to imitate them in their ways. There are different levels of this. One level is that if something is an outstanding feature of theirs, then although it may be permissible in Islam, it would be prohibited. The example of this is urinating while standing. Although in principle it may be permissible, but since it has become an outstanding feature of the disbelievers, it would be forbidden. Now we need to ask ourselves that shaking hands using only one hand or not wearing a topee, who’s ways are these? The answer is obvious, that these are outstanding features of the disbelievers. Hence although in principle they may be permissible, they would be prohibited.
