Q: JASSER AUDA IS A PROFESSOR AT THE IPSA COLLEGE IN SOUTH AFRICA. THE PRINCIPAL OF IPSA IS SOME CONFUSED IGHSAAN TALIEP. IGHSAAN TALIEP HOLDS A HIGH POSITION AT THE MJC. PROFESSOR JASSER AUDA ENCOURAGES WOMEN TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MASJID. THE MJC CLAIMS TO BE SHAAFI. NOW IF THE MJC IS SHAAFI, THEN HOW CAN THEY ALLOW IGHSAAN TALIEP ON THEIR MJC BOARD AS THE SHAAFI MATH-HAB IS AGAINTS WOMEN ATTENDING THE MASJID. I STUDIED HAZRAT IBN HAJAR HAITAMI’S FATWA ON THE ISSUE. NOW PLEASE ADVISE: AM I WRONG TO SAY THAT THE MJC ARE NO MORE OUR LEADERS? AND AM I CORRECT WHEN I SAY THAT IPSA IS LOST. I ALSO RECALL THAT JASSER AUDA GAVE A LECTURE AT THE UNIVERSITY IN CAPE TOWN ABOUT WOMEN ATTENDING THE MASJID. HE DOES NOT WEAR THE SUNNAH AND DOES NOT HAVE A PROPER BEARD, YET HE CLAIMS TO BE FOLLOWING THE MIDDLE WAY. I THINK THAT 99% – IF NOT ALL – OF SHEIKHS AND ‘ULAMA’ OF CAPE TOWN ARE LOST. KINDLY COMMENT.
A: Yes, the so-called ‘Sheikhs’ and ‘Shakes’ of Cape Town are lost. In fact, they are snakes. They are misled and are misleading others. The principal of IPSA (Iblees Propaganda College of South Africa) is deviated. What middle way is the MJC and IPSA trying to propagate when the Sahaabah banned women from the Masaajid? What middle way do they follow when they don’t follow the lifestyle of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam! Any way besides the Sunnah is a Shaitaani way even if these MJC deviates and IPSA deviates declare it as a ‘middle-way’. Their middle-way is Shaitaan’s middle-way.
IPSA, MJC, and all the other liberals are not authorities of the Shariah. The Fuqaha are the authorities of the Shariah whom these liberals degrade as Jasser Auda has done in his silly lecture at the Zina-University of Cape Town. Insha Allah, a response will be written against the drivel of Jasser Auda which he blurted out in his lecture at the Haraam university. Another response will also be issued insha Allah against the rubbish which Jasser Auda wrote in defence of women attending Mosques. Jasser Auda is propagating modernism and he behaves like the moron Salafis! We do not wish to know more about Jasser Auda as it is becoming clearer by the day that he is attempting to reinterpret the Shariah. We fear Kufr for people who follow and uphold the methodology of Jasser Auda and his breed.
Your comments regarding these Cape Town deviates are correct. They will never be able to refute the Fatwa of Hazrat Ibn Hajar Haitami Rahimahullah until Qiyaamah. It is the view of all four Math-habs and it will remain until Qiyaamah. According to Ibn Hajar Haitami Rahimahullah, IPSA and MJC are morons as Hazrat Ibn Hajar stated:
“And, no one will hesitate in prohibiting women (from the Musjid and emerging from the home in general) except a ghabi (moron) who is a jaahil, and who lacks ability in understanding the subtleties of the Shariah …………The correct verdict is categorical Tahreem (i.e. haraam for women to come to the Musjid), and this is the Fatwa. And, this in a nutshell is our (Shaafi’ Math-hab).”
