Consequences of concealing knowledge

3 Dec

Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’aan:

“Verily, those who conceal what Allah has sent down of the Book and purchase a small gain therewith (of worldly things); they eat into their bellies nothing but fire. Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor purify them, and theirs will be a painful torment.” (EMQ al-Baqarah, 2: 174)

Allah (SWT) has ordered the believers to always make bayaan (explanation and elaboration) for any hukm shar’ie (divine rule), as He did with the People of the Book:

“And remember when Allah took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) to make it (the news of the coming of Prophet Muhammad [saw] and the religious knowledge) known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it, but they threw it away behind their backs, and purchased with it some miserable gain! And indeed worst is that which they bought.” (EMQ Aali ‘Imraan, 3: 187)

This covenant which Allah (SWT) made with the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) required them to publicly declare the haq (truth), make clear and explain the Divine Rules to the whole of mankind, and to never hide any ‘ilm (knowledge). Yet the Jews and Christians violated their covenant with Allah and did exactly what the Muslims are doing today: concealing the divine knowledge and not clarifying any misconceptions out of fear from being labelled a terrorist, lunatic or being put behind bars.

It is a duty upon all Muslims to imitate and follow the Messenger Muhammad (SAW) and his companions (RA) by speaking the truth wherever they are and to never fear from any consequences.

Therefore, if we want to avoid the anger, curse and punishment of Allah (SWT) it is vital for us to speak the haq wherever we are, whether in the West or in the East. Verily, if the sincere believers do not speak the haq they will die with it by themselves and nobody else will come to know about it, resulting in Allah (SWT) punishing and accounting them on the Day of Judgement.

Why is it that nowadays nobody is rushing towards Paradise? Why are the Muslims so afraid to speak the truth? When it is the time of elections there is nobody in town to condemn this great act of shirk and kufr. There is nobody condemning interfaith or the international coalition of kufr against eemaan, except a minority followers of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah. The haq today is either being concealed or is not coming out publicly, and this is mainly due to our weakness of eemaan and wrong prioritisation.

If we do not preserve this Deen, the works of the scholars and students of knowledge etc. our children and the future generations of Muslims will suffer severely and will have to learn their Deen from corrupted “scholars” and fake Islamic institutions.

Therefore dear brothers and sisters, do your duty before it is too late! Know that any ‘ilm you learn (which could be just one verse or hadeeth you know in English, or one Divine Rule, such as voting is kufr) is on your neck until you convey it and act upon it. Make sure that you save, preserve and convey all the articles, books, audios, videos etc. of the ‘ulamaa and du’aat (da’wah carriers).
