Suhaib Webb has to !!! has to be with Tariq Ramadan ! Is this not possible to have a table-discussion where four people sitting and talking about very important issues ? like for example suhaib webb – tariq ramadan – khalid yasin and yasir qadhi = these four ppl are similiar but are not the same ! i would even pay for that !!!!
Net Mosques cut short our set life.But what are we going to gain by dividing the Muslims as American Muslim, African Muslims, and Asian Muslims? Why can’t we function as one Muslim Ummah?
there were the ansari and there were the muhajireen – and the prophet pbuh made brotherhood amongst them – and we all have the brotherhood – but we muslims dont live only in medinah or in a smiliar city as meccah we live in tokyo – new york – paris and rio de janero – so we have to take this in consideration when giving out fatawa – what can we do and what not – that we live an good life here and in the hereafter
Asa, i have to say i’m truly disappointed to hear that Imam Suhaib is portraying Imam Anwar Al Awlaki as a deviant jihadi scholar propagating the wrong message. Very disappointed. We try our best to solve the problems of the ummah on one side, and on another side speak evil of some of our respected shaikhs. Then what do we expect to come of out this kind of approach?
May Allah forgive us all, lead us all to the right path, and unite us.
I support Abu Usama’s opinion.
Imam Anwar Awlaki went through all steps that he should talk inteaching islam to his audiotory insh: heareafter, lives of the Prophets, Sira, companions and now the PEAK of the Islam.
May Allah preserve Anwar Awlaki and other scholars!

Just a few quotes from his speech (my comments are in brackets)…
“Clinging to the text (Quran and Sunnah) will lead you astray”. (This is just what the Prophet (saw) told us to, especially in the time of fitna).
“We should make gay Muslims and adultrer Muslims and drug using Muslims ‘feel welcome’ “. (Should we not also lot them know that what they are doing is wrong and hated by their Creator?
“It is okay to have doubts”. (It is okay to contempalte and reflect, but it not okay to doubt. We must always try to reach certainty and conviction. Doubt is not to be tolerarted.
“I know this sisters is a sinner (constantly and perpertually neglecting the obligation of hijab) but I still love her, respect her, and give her a platform to speak”.
(Again how can we love sinners, and how can we allow them to speak for the Ummah. Remember that there is a difference between someone who sins once in a while and then makes repentence and admits their sin, and one who continues to sin).
“The distinction between dar ul islam and dar ul harb is not found in Quran and Sunnah” (How many are the ayahs in Quran and hadith of the Prophet (saw) which say that Allah is the only legislator. How then can we not make a distinction between lands where He is soverign and lands where is not.
What would the Prophet (saw) think if he heard this speech? What does Allah (swt)think of it?
Suhaib Webb wants to make a ‘comfortable’ life for American Muslims, but in the process he is compromising the Shariah. This is just what the people before us did. They sold their Din for this dunya.
Has not heard the hadith of the Prophet (saw) where he (saw) said that a time will come when holding on to you Din will be like holding on to fire?
This speech reminds me of the hadith….
“I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, ‘Allah will not take away knowledge from His servants, but knowledge will be taken away as the men of knowledge are taken away until there is not a single man of knowledge left. Then people will take ignorant men for their leaders who will be asked something and give a fatwa (decision) without any knowledge. They will go astray and lead others astray.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
May Allah (swt) save this Ummah from the likes of Suhaib Webb!!
Please do us all a favor and graduate from Al-Azhar, study for years and then make respectful judgments. Don’t just throw random hadiths in order to criticize an Islamic authority.
1:50:00 I believe he is talking to self-righteous and arrogant people like you. I guess you were too prideful to finish what he had to say. May Allah guide you.
As Salaamu alaikum wa Rahmatu Allahi wa Barakatuh,
@ Brother Abd Rahman.
Ya akhi feeLLahi you misquoted Brother Suhaib. For example, you inserted the words “Qur’an and Sunnah” into the following quote: ““Clinging to the text (Quran and Sunnah) will lead you astray”. Brother Suhaib referred to classical texts in general (ie books of fiqh, tafseer, etc), and furthermore he clearly quoted that statement from a classical scholar; therefore, honesty requires citing that fact.
Also, it would be a strange day when everything a student of i’lm said was completely agreed to by everyone of Ahl al Sunnah. Even so, people’s statements should be evaluated according to the known character and expressed beliefs of that individual.
“Words spoken off the cuff are not indicative of all their implications and subtle meanings as much as they are just trying to hit home a general point. Aside from this, scholars are agreed that the indirect implications of a person’s statement are not to be taken into consideration when direct, unambiguous statements to the contrary are available from the same person. Imam Ibn al-Wazîr discusses this matter in his book al-`Awâsim wa al-Qawâsim and says that it is a matter of agreement between the people of knowledge.”

-Suhaib Webb. “Virtual Pulpit: Net Mosques, Congregations & Imams” video, at minutes 34-38.
Imam Suhaib Webb should be commended for this talk. He has dealt with the challenges facing Muslims in the west espcially the converts.
Muslims have lost the spirit of Islam and focused instead of trivial issues such as the length of beard and so on.
I wish everyone would watch this talk and think deeply about what this great man has to say.
And those who are criticizing this talk should learn about tolerance and respect.
Problems that the Sheikh put on the table are real and we should not dismiss them.
May Allah reward him and give him good health.
This is a great talk and I’m hearing so many new things. Converts can see the problems of our ummah more clearly I think sometimes because they don’t come with born Muslims baggage.
