Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi was born in 1378 A.H. (1959 A.D.) in the province of Nablus, Palestine, he left the city with his family when he was about 3 or 4 years old and settled in Kuwait, where he completed his high school studies. He traveled about Kuwait and Hijaz where he had a good affiliation with students of knowledge and Sheikhs who taught him the keys of understanding Islamic knowledge. Thereupon, he devoted himself to study the books of Sheikhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah and his student Ibnul Qayyim. Furthermore, during his visits to Al-Madinah, he was attracted to the books of Sheikh Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhab, his students, sons and grandsons, the Imams of the Najdi Da'wah, which enrich the public and private libraries over there. He traveled several times to Pakistan and Afghanistan and there he met many brothers and Islamic groups who came from various regions of the Islamic world. He was involved in some educational and Da'wah activities there. While there, he wrote a book called "Millat Ibrahim" (The Denomination and Creed of Ibrahim). He finally settled in Jordan in 1992, two years before his arrest.

Millat Ibrahim

We present to the English reader, Millat Ibrahim, by the noble Sheykh Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi, May Allah preserve him. Herin, the author draws several parallels between the form of idolatry in the time of the Messenger of Allah salalhu alahi wassalam, and that which the apostate regimes have instituted from fabricated laws and methodologies of falsehood in the lands of the Muslims.

Democracy - A Religion

Recently, a debate between our religiously committed brothers has erupted on the Internet regarding the permissibility of participating in democratic elections in the West. An article entitled ?To Vote or Not to Vote? and another entitled ?Why Vote, and Who to Vote For?? in particular have raised several points, which we feel are necessary to address as well as certain others related to Democracy and participation in the electoral process in general. In this short address, we will attempt to offer some clarification on the issue with the hope of refuting some claims and correcting some errors of the authors of these articles as well as addressing some of the more common mistakes related to this topic overall. In approaching the topic of Muslims participating in democratic elections, certain introductory points must be made. It is our intention to be very brief in these points as to avoid dwelling upon them and we only mention them for later reference in discussing the core issue of dispute regarding the permissibility of participating in the democratic elections.

Expecting the Best from Allah

By Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi. In accordance with how good your expectations of and hope in Allah are and how truthful your reliance and trust are in Him, Allah will not betray your hopes in the least, as He does not betray the hopes of those who hope and does not cause any effort to go to waste.
