Egypt [Misr]

Well…Egypt eh. Known as the land of the Quran and also known to be the home of Musa [alayhi salam] and the firawn. Once you get here, first tihng you’ll probably notice is the dust. The flight is only a few hours from anywhere in the West and the actual airport is about 30 mins from the main Cairo city and most likely your apartment.

The most popular place for the westerners students to stay is the Masjid Bilal area and the most popular insititute to learn arabic is the Fajr centre which is only 20 mins or so from masjid Bilal. Most students go to learn the arabic language but be careful as the arabic you should be learning [fusha -Qurani Arabic] is not the same as the arabic spoken by the general Egyptian public [amayaan]

Soon as you land at the airport unless you know someone, most likely thing is you will be ambushed by a group of people all trying to get you into their taxi. Golden rule of taxi riding is, dont accept the first price as they will rip you off. In fact, not even just taxi riding a general rule in Egypt is dont accept the first price. They  enjoy haggling so make sure you enjoy it too.

Hopefully you will have sorted out a place to stay before you got there and not just expected to land there and hope for the best..because you would get anything but the best. Best thing for a freshy student of knowledge to do is live with other brothers. This will not only help you settle in as the brothers will accept you and aid you but this will also help you to improve and learn arabic. Take a few days to check out the area, take in the smell and settle in as you dont wanna jump straight into learning.

Your first lesson should be a few days after you arrive so if its private the ustaadh will come to your house and you can learn in the comfort of your house while drinking tea or if you went to an insitute you would have to go there and learn in a classroom environement with other students. More info can be found in the pre section.

Ensure you use your time wisely over there and you will notice that compared to the west, there is far more barakah in the time. Set a timetable to do things. Set a certain amoubt of time you want on learning arabic, a certain amount of revising arabic, a certain amount reading Quran and a certain amount to memorise to Quran. You know how much you can handle so you can always start by little and increase over time.

In regards to salah, there are masaajid within metres of each other. Like in the west, every street corner was a corner shop, over in Misr, every street corner has a masjid. From small to big, whichever is your local, a lot of your time will be spent in there. And as a Muslim country, the adhaan is played 5 times a day to double make sure you dont miss a salah.

Food over there is as cheap as chips. In fact, its even cheaper. Theres a national dish (if you wanna call it that) called ful  and many Egyptians have this as a main meal as it only costs 5pence. Bargain. Whether you like it or not is a completely different matter. Every other shop is a restuarant so food is a plenty. From high class chinese to the quick keebab. You’ll find yourself eating out most of the time.

Allah [aza wajal] says in Surah Yusuf:

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

Indeed we have sent this Quran in arabic so that they may reflect

    Belief in Qadr (Divine Decree) is the sixth Islamic article of faith, which means that Allah (SWT) has decreed everything that happens in the universe according to His Will and plan and His prior knowledge. The issue of Qadar comes from the unity in the matter of the Lordship of Allah (SWT) (Tawhid ar-Rububiyah), which means to believe that all creation, sovereignty and planning belong to Allah alone (SWT)!. When Allah (SWT) created everything He (SWT) determined when each thing would come into existence and when it would perish. He (SWT) also determined everything’s qualities and their nature. Therefore, nothing happens or exists without His permission and outside of His will. To understand this better, it is the will of Allah (SWT) that He (SWT) decided to create us, humans, and everything around us and permitted us to make free choices. In other words, when we plan to do something, it is the will of Allah (SWT) that He (SWT) gave us the freedom of making Intelligence or unintelligence choices and but we are the ones who are deciding what we should do or choose, (But It’s ALLAH who Grants Wisdom.) This is the reason why we are held accountable for our actions. Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’an 002.286 On no soul doth God place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. (Pray): “Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which Thou didst lay on those before us; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith.” [2:286]. In Islam, people are not held accountable for things which were out of their control i.e. forgetfulness and forced to do.

    . we must Belief in the Decree of ALLAH, the Good and Bad, these World events are what ALLAH has permitted the Good and bad many of These events are Great Deceives Tricks, this has been planed and manufactured by The US,Israel,the British and the Franc these are Governments that will benefit the most. in order to stabilize the Dajjal support system,and to make sure its well in place,a DAJJAL- system, that is up and running, that shall await his arrival. This DAJJAL-system, will be the most evil and most corrupt satanic, kaafir force in history.The DAJJAL-system is of course as we know is FREEMASONRY Every single position in the United Nations, The EEC and every position in the British Parliament is held by people who are Freemasons.At the moment we see visible signs of the system that is paving the way for him. There is an ongoing corruption in all societies, homosexuality is rising, righteous are considered non righteous and vice versa etc. the one eye system could be equivalent to the media, that often points on a one-way biased news. The media often deceive people and mislead others, turning people against religion and promoting freedom of choice, in reference to homosexuality, singing, sex before marriage, nudity etc…

    This Dajjal system can only be achieved through the destabilizion of the Arab Governments in the Middle east and North Africa. In every situation there are irreligious Atheists, Secularist,Christians,Jews,the Munafiqeen people who are in the forefront, Leading the way with the Voices of satan, they are Calling for democracy (Representative democracy is a form of government founded on the principle of elected individuals representing the people,) (The Sharia)the Laws of ALLAH, Islamic Laws are Better for the Muslims, Sharia is the sacred law of Islam. Most Muslims believe Sharia is derived from two primary sources of Islamic law: the divine revelations set forth in the Qur’an, and the example set by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad in the Sunnah. Fiqh jurisprudence interprets and extends the application of Sharia to questions not directly addressed in the primary sources by including secondary sources. These secondary sources usually include the consensus of the religious scholars embodied in ijma, and analogy from the Qur’an and Sunnah through qiyas. The people who are in the forefront calling for Democracy are against Islam! these people are agents of the Dajjal.with Tricks of Deception to make the Muslims people belief and accept the irreligious ideas of the Dajjal through democracy! And because of these irreligious people who are trying to turn the muslims people away from ALLAH, .from the Laws of ALLAH, this is the Time to accept the Laws of ALLAH!; and this is the Time just before the Emergence of the Dajjal. The entire secular world (Jews/Freemasons, Atheist, Christians, Hindus Etc.) shall unite under the banner of the Dajjal (Anti-Christ) against Islam. Islam will be the only force standing between him and the total world domination.
    Decisions of Allaah and His Messenger

    Allah ta’ala said:

    “It is not befitting for a believing man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allaah and His Messenger, to have any option about their decision.” [al-Ahzaab 33:36]

    This ayah indicates that when it is confirmed that Allah ta’ala or His Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam have made a decision or have informed about a particular matter, then no believer, male or female, may choose differently. Any opposing choice would contradict Iman.

    Ash-Shafi’ee (r) reported a consensus among the scholars of the Sahaabah, the Tabi’een, and their followers, that:

    “If a sunnah of Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam becomes manifest to a person, he does not have any choice but to follow it, regardless of what other people say.”

    No Muslim scholar disputes or doubts the truth of this statement. The only evidence that people are required to follow [besides Allah's Book] is the words of the Infallible (Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) “who does not say anything out of (his own) desire” [an-Najm 53:3)]

    Other people’s talks could, at best, be acceptable to follow. But in no way may they oppose or outweigh the Texts (of the Quraan and Sunnah). We ask Allah ta’ala to protect us from the failure [incurred on those who do not abide by this].

    The Guidance Is in Obeying the Messenger

    Also, Allah ta’ala said:

    “Say: Obey Allah and obey the Messenger: but if you turn away then he (the Messenger) is only responsible for the duty placed on him, and you for that placed on you. If you obey him, you shall be on right guidance. The Messenger’s duty is only clear deliverance [of the Message]” [an-Nur 24:54]

    Note that repeating the verb “obey” here has an important significance that will be discussed below.

    Here Allah ta’ala makes obeying the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam a condition for guidance; guidance cannot be acquired without this obedience. The duty of the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is to deliver the Message; and people’s duty is to follow, obey, and submit to him. Al-Bukhari (r) reported that Az-Zuhri 1 said:

    “From Allah [comes] the knowledge; from the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam [comes] the deliverance [of the knowledge]; and from us [comes] the submission [to the Message].”

    Thus if people neglect their duty of belief and obedience, they would harm themselves not him; his responsibility is not to make them believe, but only to deliver the Message to them; it is not required from him that people be guided and successful. this is the Time just before the Emergence of the Dajjal. Time has gone by and satan deceived mankind again,with Colonialism,Socialism,Communism,marxism,Capitalism and now with Democracy! and Eventually people took up the ways of their ForeFathers,who had accepted Islam and who were once muslims,whom eventually abandoned Islam,They went back in to the darkness with Colonialism and then with Socialism,Communism until Finally, Islam became Strange again, just like it had started and just like Rasulallah(sallallahu alaihi was salam)had foretold. So if the true Believer whom ALLAH has Blessed with Wisdom and Knowledge wants to tread upon this Path, the Path of ALLAH,then let him be prepared to resign himself to the life of a Stranger among his people,just like his predecessors who accepted Islam were treated by the people. For indeed,the true Believer in ALLAH, he will be a stranger in his Beliefs, because his people have corrupted their beliefs, by following the Dajjal. the true Believer in ALLAH, he will be a stranger in his religion,due to what the people have done to it, the Dajjal will attacks all the sacred issues of Faith, DAJJAL will have the power to cause Famine, Earth quakes and destruction on a mass scale. Many Muslims will join the ranks of DAJJAL on being afraid of his power. Only those with very strong faith will be able to resist. Remember that once you have joined the Anti-Christ, your soul will be doomed forever in the fire of hell. Remember the hadiths can be altered, for instance one hadith states that the dajjal is blind in the left eye, but another claims in the right eye, yet they are both reliable, my theory is that it only has ONE EYE, but the fact that every person in society will be watched and monitored. the true Believer in ALLAH,he will be a stranger in his manner of Praying, because the people are ignorant of the Prayer of Rasulallah(sallallhu alaihi was salam).the true Believer in ALLAH, he will be a stranger in his ordering of Good and prohibiting evil, for the people have taken what is evil as good and they have abandoned what is good as evil. in short, then the true Believer in ALLAH, he will be a stranger in all his matters of this world and the Hereafter,calling to the Path of ALLAH and withstanding the Harm of the Dajjal and all those who follow him. these Praiseworthy Believers are called strangers since they are a small minority among mankind. Thus, Muslims are strangers among mankind; the true Believers are strangers among Muslims; and the Scholars are strangers among the True Believers. and the Followers of the Sunnah, those that clear themselves from all peoples of innovation, are like wise Strangers.

    Narrated Abu Hurayrah: “The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islaam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allaah will perish all religions except Islaam. He will destroy the Antichrist (Dajjal) and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him. (Translation of Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 37, Battles (Kitab Al-Malahim), Number 4310)”
