Sunni Tampering of the Months of Hajj

Posted: March 23, 2016 by millatibraheem in Bid'ah, Current Affairs, Rebuttals, Sunni

For centuries, many Muslims have been mislead by the so-called ‘Ahl ul-Sunnah’ and their changing of Allah’s Deen.  One of numerous things they had tampered with are the months of Hajj.  Yes, months of Hajj, as in more than one month for Hajj.

Allah says:

الحَجُّ أَشهُرٌ مَعلوماتٌ ۚ فَمَن فَرَضَ فيهِنَّ الحَجَّ فَلا رَفَثَ وَلا فُسوقَ وَلا جِدالَ فِي الحَجِّ ۗ وَما تَفعَلوا مِن خَيرٍ يَعلَمهُ اللَّهُ ۗ وَتَزَوَّدوا فَإِنَّ خَيرَ الزّادِ التَّقوىٰ ۚ وَاتَّقونِ يا أُولِي الأَلبابِ

Hajj months are well-known, so whoever has made Hajj obligatory upon himself therein, there is no sexual relations and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. And whatever good you do – Allah knows it. And take provisions, but indeed, the best provision is fear of Allah . And fear Me, O you of understanding.
(al-Baqarah 2:197)

Allah explicitly says “أَشهُرٌAshorun” in which Hajj can be performed, and they are well-known.  “أَشهُرٌAshorun” means three or more months.  The duality of the term would be Sharayn, or two months, and Shahr(un) means one month.

We are clearly told Hajj months are well-known.  Now, are the Hajj months three or more?

Allah says:

إِنَّ عِدَّةَ الشُّهورِ عِندَ اللَّهِ اثنا عَشَرَ شَهرًا في كِتابِ اللَّهِ يَومَ خَلَقَ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضَ مِنها أَربَعَةٌ حُرُمٌ ۚ ذٰلِكَ الدّينُ القَيِّمُ ۚ فَلا تَظلِموا فيهِنَّ أَنفُسَكُم ۚ وَقاتِلُوا المُشرِكينَ كافَّةً كَما يُقاتِلونَكُم كافَّةً ۚ وَاعلَموا أَنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ المُتَّقينَ

Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve months in the book of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred. That is the upright deen, so do not wrong yourselves during them. And fight against the disbelievers collectively as they fight against you collectively. And know that Allah is with the righteous.
(at-Touba 9:36)

In this ayah, Allah tells us there are 12 months, in which four are sacred.  And another ayah in the same Surah 9:2, speaks of four months, 9:3 the day of the greater pilgrimage, and when the sacred months have passed 9:5.

What are these four sacred months?  Allah says Hajj months are well-known/m’aloomaat, therefore, these months must have been familiar to the people during the time of Allah’s Messenger.

To be continued…

Allah says there is no compulsion in Deen, the right way is clear from the wrong [2:256] and the truth is from your lord, whoever wills, let him believe and whoever wills, let him disbelieve [18:29].


Apostasy is when one abandons or renounces his religious and/or political beliefs and allegiances.


Whenever one testifies there’s no god but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s apostle, we assume that he’s Muslim based on his outward deeds.


However, there may be times these individuals manifest disbelief through their deeds. If he opposes the Rasul after guidance is made clear to him and follows other than the believers’ path, then clearly he’s among those who disbelieve [4:115].


Either he never believed or he believed then disbelieved or he’s filled with doubts. The ayat in surah an-nisa 89-91 tell us not to take them as allies until they emigrate in Allah’s path and if they turn away, seize them and kill them but if they restrain their hands against you and offer peace then Allah has not made a way for you against them, only those who have joined the enemy in fighting you should be fought against.


There are mainly three narrations which allude to killing apostates:
whoever changes his deen, kill him
the one who comes out against Allah and His Rasul
the one who forsakes Islam and parts the jama’ah (or parts from the jama’ah)


The first: whoever changes his deen, kill him
If this were taken generally, then a pagan or a Jew who becomes Christian should be killed.  Even if a Christian or Jew who becomes a Muslim should be killed, following the obvious wording of the narration.  If someone says only Islam is deen, then they are mistaken.  Why?  Because Allah tells the people of the scripture not to exceed the limits of their religion… [4:171], calling their ways ‘deen.’  Therefore, this narration is problematic with the Qur’an.


The second: the one who comes out against Allah and His Rasul
The Qur’an has already detailed the punishments for hiraba in surah al-ma’idah, regardless of whether or not it’s done by one who used to say he’s Muslim or one who still claims he’s Muslim.


The third: the one who forsakes Islam and parts the jama’ah (or parts from the jama’ah)
By jama’ah, it’s not speaking about the sect that emerged after the Rasul’s passing, calling themselves ‘Ahl us sunna wal jama’ah.  No, rather, the jama’ah is the Muslims and splitting their ranks. But due to the  word “and” in the narration, this individual must be doing both: leaving Islam and splitting the ranks of the believers, causing sectarian strife.  If the other wording is used -or parts from the jama’ah- then it implies he has parted ways with the jama’ah, in which case we apply the ayat in surah an-nisa depending on which camp he’s joined, a neutral party or the enemy…
