What is the ruling on raising these kind of banners?


Question to Shaykh Al-Faadil Abul-Abbaas Aadil Mansoor:

As-Salaamoe alaikoem wa-Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu o Esteemed Shaykh may Allaah Bless you..

What is the ruling on raising these kind of banners? And saying it is the Banner of Islam and the Banner of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم or saying it is the seal of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم which he used to seal his letters with, which he wrote to the Sahabah and Kuffaar?


Wa alaykoem as-Salaam wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakatuhu.

This banner in these times, is the banner which the Khawarij raise, those who declare the Muslims to be Kuffaar and kill them and who kill the people who have a covenant and safety (within the Muslim society) or the Dhimmies from among the Kuffaar,

And it has become one of their characteristics in this time and it is not the seal of the Prophet. Because the seal itself is not present at this moment, it fell in a well from the hand of Uthman رضي الله عنه.

And it is not the attribute of the Prophetic Seal as it is apparent from the statement of the explainer of the Hadith as Ibn Hadjr and others than him. According to what has been said; is that Muhammed is upon top, then Rasul and then Allah, contrary to what is present in the picture and banner.

Then, the Banner and Flag of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم has not its seal in it. His seal was only in his letters not in banners and flags.

Allah knows best and He is the One Who grants Succes.

About Akhi Soufyan

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.
