In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Astrology - Fore-teller - UNSEEN
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

Muslim cannot be Astrologer or Fortuneteller:

O you who believe! Strong Drink (Intoxicants), gambling, idols and divining arrows are only an infamy of Satan’s handiwork. Leave it aside in order that you may succeed, [Al_Quraan_005.090].

Say (O Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), to the disbelievers): I say not unto you (that) I possess the treasures of Allah, nor that I have knowledge of the Unseen; and I say not unto you: Lo! I am an angel. I follow only that which is inspired in me. Say: Are the blind man and the seer equal? Will you not then take thought, [Al_Quraan_006.050]?

Say (O Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him): I have no power over any good or harm to myself except as Allah willeth. If I had knowledge of the Unseen, I should have multiplied all good and no evil should have touched me: I am but a Warner, and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have Faith, [Al_Quraan_007.188].

This day, I have Perfected your Religion for you and Completed my Favor unto you, and have chosen for you as Religion Al-Islaam. Whoso is forced by hunger, not by will, to sin: (for him) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful, [Al_Quraan_005.003].

(Allah’s Favor has already been completed on us, so no new miracle may happen)

Some people asked Allah's Apostle (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) about the fore-tellers. He said. -They are nothing." They said, O Allah's Apostle (Peace-Be-Upon-Him)! Sometimes they tell us of a thing which turns out to be true." Allah's Apostle (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, "A Jinn snatches that true word and pours it into the ear of his friend (the foreteller) (as one puts something into a bottle). The foreteller then mixes with that word one hundred lies", (Narrated by Ayesha (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anha); Sahih Bukhari transmitted it. Vol 7: #657 of Sahih Bukhari).

Allah's Apostle (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, "Whoever comes to fortune-tellers, and ask him about something, his prayer is NOT accepted for forty nights", Narrated by Hafsah (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anha); Muslim transmitted it. Vol 2: #4391 of Mishkat al-Masabih).

Allah's Apostle (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, "Whoever learns astrology, learns a branch of sorcery. He adds what he likes,
{Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anhu); Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah transmitted it. Vol 2: #4394 of Mishkat al-Masabih}.

Allah's Apostle (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, "Whoever acquires a branch of astrology for a purpose other than that for which Allah mentioned, has indeed acquired a branch of sorcery, An astrologer is a sooth-sayer and a sooth-sayer is sorcerer and a sorcerer is an unbeliever", {Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anhu); Razin transmitted it. Vol 2: #4399  of Mishkat al-Masabih}.

He who presumes that he would inform about what was going to happen tomorrow fabricates the greatest lie against Allah. And Allah says “Say thou [Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him)]: None in the heavens and the earth knows the UNSEEN except Allah”, {Narrated by Ayesha (Radi Allah Ta'lah Anha); Vol 1: #0337 of Sahih Muslim}.

ECLIPSE is not a sign of someone’s death or birth etc, just offer additional prayers at the time of Eclipse:

The sun ECLIPSED in the lifetime of Allah's Apostle (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) on the day when (his son) Ibrahim died. So the people said that the sun had ECLIPSED because of the death of Ibrahim. Allah's Apostle (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, "The sun and the moon do not ECLIPSE because of the death or life (i.e. birth) of someone. When you see the ECLIPSE pray and invoke Allah", (Narrated by Al-Mughira bin Shu’ba; Vol-002, Book-018, Hadith-0153 of Sahih Bukhari).

The Prophet (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, “The sun and the moon do not ECLIPSE because of the death or life (i.e. birth) of someone but they are two signs amongst the signs of Allah. When you see them offer the prayers”, (Narrated by Ibn Umar; Vol-002, Book-018, Hadith-0152 of Sahih Bukhari).

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth gets directly between the Sun and the Moon.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun and casts its shadow on Earth’s surface.

HOW come Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) did Foretell about Imaam Mahdi and Dajjaal which goes agains above-mentioned Hadiths as well as the Quraan?

May be He (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) didn’t. Not in Quraan and Authentic Hadith.

Knowledge of Future is with Allah only: Messenger did not know when & where he would die:

Then, when We decreed (Solomon’s Peace-Be-Upon-Him) death, nothing showed them his death except a little worm of the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away at his staff: so when he fell down, the Jinns saw plainly that if they had known the unseen, they would Not have tarried in the humiliating Penalty (of their Task), (Al_Quraan_034.014).

Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone). It is He Who knows rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does anyone (including Messengers) know what it is that he will earn on tomorrow: nor does anyone (including Messengers) know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things), (Al_Quraan_031.034).

Men ask thee concerning the Hour: say, The knowledge thereof is with Allah (alone): and what will make thee understand? Perchance the Hour is nigh, (Al_Quraan_033.063).

Say (O Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), to the disbelievers): I say not unto you (that) I possess the treasures of Allah, nor that I have knowledge of the Unseen; and I say not unto you: Lo! I am an angel. I follow only that which is inspired in me. Say: Are the blind man and the seer equal? Will you not then take thought, [Al_Quraan_006.050]?

Say (O Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him): I have no power over any good or harm to myself except as Allah willeth. If I had knowledge of the Unseen, I should have multiplied all good and no evil should have touched me: I am but a Warner, and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have Faith, [Al_Quraan_007.188].

Jesus / Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) – Dead or Alive?

The main reason why we don’t understand the concept and the meaning of Quraan could be as mentioned in the Quraan as, “ … And yet you study the Scripture? Will you not understand”, (Al_Quraan_002.044)?

To understand about Jesus / Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) Dead or Alive we need to do analysis of the Ayaat below:

There is none (not a single one) of the People of the book (including 1.5 Billion Muslims) but must believe in him (as only a Messenger of Allah) before his (Jesus Peace-Be-Upon-Him) death. And on the Day of Resurrection (NOT Before), he (Jesus) will be a witness against them", (Al_Quraan_004.159).

First Proof:

The first proof that Jesus / Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) is NOT Alive is this Ayaat itself, since it says that “on the Day of Resurrection (NOT Before), he (Jesus) will be a witness against them”, if Jesus / Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) comes second time in this world then he will be witness in the world before the Day of Resurrection, which cannot be true according to the above mentioned Ayaat. The concept of Quraan cannot be wrong, BUT our pre-assumptions and our belief could be wrong.

Second Proof:

For the second proof, we need to understand the meaning of People of the Book (Scripture).

Jews are the People of the Book, since they believe on the Torah, which is one of the Book of Allah.

Christian are the People of the Book, since they believe on the Injeel (Bible), which is one of the Book of Allah.

Similarly Muslims are the People of the Book, since they believe on the Quraan, which is also one of the Book of Allah.

This is also another proof that Jesus / Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) is not Alive, since in the above Ayaat it is mentioned that “none (not a single one) of the People of the book (including 1.8 Billion Muslims) but must believe in him (as only a Messenger of Allah) before his (Jesus Peace-Be-Upon-Him) death“, and Alhamdulillaah, around 1.8 Billion Muslims around the world believe on Jesus / Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) as Messenger of Allah.

Third Proof:

For the third proof, Allah said that he will take away Jesus / Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and no where he mentioned that he will send back Jesus / Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) again for the second time, instead He mentioned that whatever we are arguing about him (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), He will tell us on the day of Judgement and NOT before.

And when Allah said: O Isa/Jesus, I am going to terminate the period of your stay (on earth) and cause you to ascend unto Me and purify you of those who disbelieve and make those who follow you above those who disbelieve to the day of resurrection; then to Me shall be your return, so l will decide between you concerning that in which you differed, (Al_Quraan_003.055).

To get Success Leave the Fore-tell behind and Start Helping Allah:

O you who believe! Strong Drink (Intoxicants), gambling, idols and divining arrows are only an infamy of Satan’s handiwork. Leave it aside in order that you may succeed, [Al_Quraan_005.090].

Help Allah to get Help from Allah:

O you who believe! If you will Help Allah, He will Help you, and plant your feet firmly, (Al_Quraan_047.007).

Allah’s Favor has Already been Completed:

This day, I have Perfected your Religion for you and Completed my Favor unto you, and have chosen for you as Religion Al-Islaam. Whoso is forced by hunger, not by will, to sin: (for him) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful, [Al_Quraan_005.003].

(Allah’s Favor has already been completed on us, so no new miracle may happen)

Islaam will eventually come to all over the World:

Their intention is to extinguish the Allah’s light (by blowing) with their mouths, but Allah will complete His light, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it), [Al_Quraan_061.008].

Don’t waste your time in Foretelling and just do what Allah has commanded.

We Already have One living Miracles, the Quraan with us.

Allah’s Favor has already been completed on us.

None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah BUT those who Disbelieves ..., (Al_Quraan_040.004).

Those who don’t read the Quraan with understanding/translation and Practice on Allah’s commandments are like ASS/Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).

Allah never destroys any good nation, (Ref: Al_Quraan_011.116-117).

Hypocrites Read the Quraan BUT Practices Something Else.

Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).

IF QURAAN CANNOT CONVINCE YOU NOTHING WILL, (Ref: Al_Quraan_004:087, 007:185, 039:023, 052:033-034, 053:056-059, 056:075-082, 068:044, 077:050).
