Lesson 22 The ‘Aqeedah (Creed) of al-Raaziyyaan – Uways at-Taweel
Explanation of Point #32 of the ‘Aqeedah of al-Raziyyaan:
[33. The Khawārij shoot out of Islām.]
Some points covered:
- The origins of the Khawārij sect and the Prophet’s (sallallāhu ‘alaihi wasallam) warning against their methodology
- Their khurooj (rebellion) against Alī ibn Abī Tālib (radiyAllāhu ‘anhu)
- Some present day representations of the Khawārij [e.g. al-Ikhwān al-Muslimoon (the Muslim Brotherhood), Al-Qa’eda, Boko Haram] and some of their main ideological leaders
- Statements of Scholars regarding whether or not the Khawārij are considered Muslims
Note: Several previous classes in the ‘Aqeedah of al-Raaziyyaan series discussing different affairs of creed also clarify in further detail how the Khawarij have opposed the Qur’ān and Sunnah in those various aspects.
The class was held on Saturday, 3rd of Jumudaa al-Akhirah, 1442 (January 16th, 2021).
