Is it permissible for a woman to disobey her parents if they command her not to wear the ‘abaaya?


It seems to be apparent that you, O my daughter, are from the khalaeej (the Gulf States) if in fact you are not from Saudi Arabia. It is obligatory upon the Muslim woman to wear the Jilbaab. The jilbaab is an outer covering that conceals the beauty of a woman and her clothing; it covers her body from head to toe. This means that it covers the entire body.As for the ‘abaaya that is most popular in the Gulf States, then it has taken the place of the Jilbaab.

I say that if in your area the jilbaab is predominately worn by the people, then do not wear the ‘abaaya. However, if in your area or country the people predominately wear the ‘abaaya then do not obey your parents (i.e. wear the Jilbaab not the ‘abayaa) as there is no obedience to the creation when it involves disobedience to the creator.

At this point I would like to clarify that the ‘abaaya of the woman is be worn upon the head, and for her to wear it upon the shoulders is an error, even if some of the people of knowledge have given verdicts that the ‘abaaya can be worn on the shoulders.

Verily, those who have given the verdict (stating) that a woman can wear the ‘abayaa on the shoulders have only done so because they were unaware that the ‘abayaa has taken the place of the jilbaab; and the Jilbaab is worn from the head.

Understand this, may Allaah bless you.

Question concerning unity of religions by sh. Ubayd al Jabiree

Qn28: Some of the people by what’s been called by ‘Interfaith Dialogue’ and they are claiming that those who Islaam hasn’t yet reached cannot be called kuffar (disbelievers) because the evidence hasn’t been established upon them. So, we ask you Shaykh, if you can explain this issue of making takfeer on those who haven’t embraced Islaam yet because the message hasn’t reached them.

Ans.28: This school of thought which you are mentioning are the exact thoughts of Dr Yusuf al-Qaradawi who’s an Egyptian Islamic doctor who lives in Qatar, and he is not trustworthy regarding the Religion. He is a servant of the
freemasons; he gives da’wah promoting the unity of religions and that
which was led by Hasan Turaaby from Sudan. We know from the Quran, the
Sunnah and the Consensus of Scholars that people are of two types – and
there is no third.
The types are, first those whoresponded to the Call of Allaah and His Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and they are the Muslims; while the second consists of those who have not responded to the Call of Allaah, and they are the Jews,
the Christians and the Hindus; and these are the kuffar (disbelievers)
due to the evidence in the Qur’aan, the Sunnah and the Ijmaa’
(consensus of the Scholars). The Jews and the Christians are also known
as the People of the Book due to the fact that they have heard about
the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and they also heard
his call. In the hadeeth of the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam,
he says, ‘I swear by the One in Whose Hands my life is, there is not a
Jew or Christian who heard about me and he dies without accepting that
which I have brought, then he will enter the Hellfire.’ This interfaith
dialogue is a sickness, an affliction, trying to bring about the
unification of religions and it is not from the methodology of the
Salaf; this hasn’t been known of until it became apparent from the
Ikhwan al-Muslimeen in Egypt and has since branched out into different
organisations in Sudan, Syria and other places. And as for the
principles of this organisation, we will take that which we agree with
and we will leave that which we disagree with. Their principles are the
likes of which open ways to bid’ah (innovation) and enable the people
of bid’ah to climb into the lives of the Muslims taking any opportunity
they can to get to the misguided Muslim groups such as the Raafidah and
other than them as well as the non-Muslims amongst the Jews and
Christians. I have discussed this in detail previously and explained
how these people leave al Walaa wal Baraa (the allegiance to the
Muslims and not associating oneself to the Kuffar) although it is a
principle of Islaam. As a result of this new thought, they call people
to love the Christians and the Jews. This is one of their da’wah which
adds itself to another of their da’wah to bring together the people of
the Sunnah with the people of the Rafidaah together – and this was
instigated by the founder of the Ikhwan al Muslimeen, Hasan al-Banna
who clearly mentioned this. This man claimed that the Muslims and Jews
should be brought together since their enmity wasn’t based on religion
issues but rather our differences are economical ones – this was quoted
by Mahmoud Abdul-Haleem in his book, ‘Al Ikhwaanu Ahdaatun sun’atu
Every Muslim should know, there are two types in the religion, those who have accepted the words of Allaah and they are the Muslims, and those who haven’t and they are the Kuffar – and this is based on evidence from the Qur’aan, the Sunnah and the Ijmaa’. So I advise those who have been afflicted or tested with this Unity of religions to repent to Allaah. It is clear that there is no
problem with is giving the Jews and Christians da’wah by using all the
means causing them to love this religion. We should make apparent to
them the good deeds of Islaam of which are Righteousness, Justice,
prohibition of Oppression, Honesty, Protection, Security for ourselves
and our neighbours, security of their wealth and their person and all
other positive aspects of Islaam since it is the upright and straight
religion and it is the only religion which Allaah is pleased by.
And Allaah Knows Best.

Is Ali Halabi Really a Student of Shaykh Al-Albani?
Ubayd Jabiree (may Allah bless him)


Questioner: Oh Shaykh, We study the books written by Shaykh Al-Albani (may Allah
have mercy him) . Sometimes there are some issues that cause us
confusion. For those issues should we ask Shaykh Ali Hasan Abdul
Hameed; as he was a student…

Shaykh Ubayd: He interrupts.. No! No! He isn’t a suitable person to go ask. This is
because he isn’t one of Al-Albani’s students.  When Shaykh Nasirud Deen
Al-Albani was in Sham: Syria, He used to have students. However when he
moved to Jordan he didn’t have any students. While residing in Jordan
he didn’t teach. Some brothers used to sit with him only.

Questioner: Yeah, Oh Shaykh we  heard that he remained with the Shaykh and benefitted from him for around twenty-five years.

Shaykh: No, He didnýt cling to Shaykh Al-Albani! This is a lie. This speech is
incorrect. Rather, he occasionally used to visit the Shaykh like

Questioner: Oh, Shaykh who do you advise us to ask questions to?

Shaykh: By Allah, may Allah bless you. Ask those who are firm in their religion
and trustworthy from the people of knowledge. Ask the people of
knowledge who have knowledge and understanding.

Questioner: So, does this mean that we donýt return our affairs to Shaykh Ali?

Shaykh Ubaid: Wallahi, I don’t believe you should return your affairs to a man that has begun to act rash and commingle (with Ahul bid’ah)

Questioner: Allahýs help is sought! May Allah reward you Shaykh.
