[Fatawa] Slaughtering animals for jinn (Hajj)

Fatwa no. 2527:

Q: Some religious brothers come to us in the desert and advise us that if people slaughter animals as a sacrifice to the Jinn (creatures created from fire), their Salah and Hajj will be invalid. When I heard this from them, I repented to Allah for sacrificing animals to the Jinn. I had already performed Hajj, but they tell me that my previous Hajj is invalid. Is my Hajj valid or not? If it is invalid, should I perform Hajj again.

A: Sacrificing animals to the Jinn is considered Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship). If a person who commits this dies before repenting to Allah, he will abide eternally in Hellfire.

(Part No. 1; Page No. 208)

Shirk invalidates all deeds, as Allah the Exalted says (what means):  But if they had joined in worship others with Allâh, all that they used to do would have been of no benefit to them. (Surah Al-An‘am, 6: 88).

You should thank Allah for guiding you to Tawbah (repentance) from this grave sin which invalidates all deeds, and you must perform Hajj again. If your Tawbah is sincere, Allah has promised to forgive those who repent and change their sins into good deeds, as He says (what means):  And those who invoke not any other ilâh (god) along with Allâh, nor kill such person as Allâh has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse - and whoever does this shall receive the punishment.  The torment will be doubled to him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace;  Except those who repent and believe (in Islâmic Monotheism), and do righteous deeds; for those, Allâh will change their sins into good deeds, and Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah Al-Furqan 25: 68-70).

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

[Quote] ​The home of the Hereafter is for those who are humble for the sake of Allāh / Shaykh Rabee bin Haadee al-Madkhalee

The home of the Hereafter is for those who are humble for the sake of Allāh

{That home of the Hereafter (i.e. Paradise), We shall assign to those who rebel not against the truth with pride and oppression in the land nor do mischief by committing crimes. And the good end is for the Muttaqūn (pious)} [Sūrah Al-Qasas 28:83]

Allāh has prepared the home of the Hereafter for those who are humble for the sake of Allāh. And whosoever is humble for the sake of Allāh then He (Allāh) will elevate him. And as for the arrogant then Allāh hates them. And this will be their destination; the Hellfire. And refuge is sought with Allāh.

Shaykh Rabee bin Haadee al-Madkhalee, may Allah preserve him

(تِلْكَ الدَّارُ الْآخِرَةُ نَجْعَلُهَا لِلَّذِينَ لَا يُرِيدُونَ عُلُوًّا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فَسَادًا ۚ وَالْعَاقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ)
فالدار الآخرة أعدها الله للمتواضعين في الله. ومن يتواضع لله يرفعه. والمستكبرون يبغضهم الله. وهذا مصيرهم النار. والعياذ بالله
[الشيخ ربيع ابن هادي المدخلي حفظه الله في كتابه مرحبا يا طالب العلم ص٢٢٠]

[Quote] The afflictions might be good for you / Shaykh Muqbil bin Haadee al-Waadi'ee

When you are afflicted with an affliction, then perhaps that affliction is good for you. Whether that affliction may be in your wealth, your body or in anything that hurts and upsets you. Perhaps it is a means for the raising of your rank in this life and in the Hereafter, and perhaps it is a purification from Allāh (from sins), the Mighty and Majestic.

Shaykh Muqbil bin Haadee al-Waadi'ee, may Allah have mercy upon him

المصائب قد تكون خيرا لك

إذا أصبت بمصيبة، ربما تكون تلك المصيبة خيرا لك. سواء أكانت تلكم المصيبة في مالك أو كانت في جسدك، أو كانت في أي شيء يؤلمك، ويقلقلك، ربما يكون سببا لرفع شأنك في الدنيا والآخرة، وربما يكون تمحيصا من الله عز وجل

[Quote] Adhere to the Rabbāni Scholars! by Shaykh Sulaymān ibn Salīmullāh al-Ruhaylī حفظه الله

Shaykh al-Ruḥaylī:

Indeed, during theses times people who have no knowledge have emerged.

This is because the media serves them and because the media raises them.

So, they have for them programs where they put them forth to the people.

While the reality of their affairs is they have no intellects, neither do they 
have knowledge nor justice. 

Rather, they only want ignorance and Fitnah for the Ummah of Muhammad
(صلى الله عليه وسلم).

So, what is obligatory upon us is to know the Rabbāni scholars, regardless if 
they appear in the media or not.

And to be aware of deluded youth, those who have know knowledge. 

And through social media, some people put themselves forward as if they are 
from students of knowledge and from people of knowledge.

And they've written some treatises that if one were to read it he would assume    
they were from the people of knowledge.

Then, they stir Fitnah and doubts in the hearts of the Muslims.

And they are unknown. Their conditions are unknown.

Rather, at times their names are not even known.

So, there's and Abū al-Qa'qā', and there's an Abū Daḥdāḥ.

And Allāh knows best if they are even from the Muslims or not!

They are concealed and hiding behind social media. 

So, it is obligatory upon the ummah to be aware of these people and stick to
with the Rabbāni scholars!

Whoever traverses upon the Fatwa of the Rabbāni scholars is safeguarded and 
safe with his Lord (سبحانه و تعالى).

And his Dunyā is safe from the Fitnah of the people of desires.
