Shaykh Muhammad al Yaqoubi’s Challenge to Terry Jones
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,
Sayyidi, Shaykh Muhammad Abul Huda al Yaqoubi al Hassani from Damascus in Syria, has moments ago released a public challenge to Pastor Terry Jones about Sayyidina Muhammad [saw]!
You can read the challenge here, via the Shaykh’s official Facebook account, or if you are Terry Jones (or a member of his Islamophobic organization), feel free to let the Shaykh know of your response via his website, ‘Sacred Knowledge‘. This is not a challenge by any da’ee, or any young Imam, this is a fully acknowledged, international heavyweight in the deen of Islam. I am certain that Terry Jones will never respond to his challenge. You can read a full biography of the Shaykh here, or an excerpt below:
He is an authority in the science of Hadith; his asanid (chains of transmission) are of the highest amongst scholars of our time. Students and scholars visit him in Syria or when he travels, to hear the masalsalat and take ijaza in narration of Hadith. In his efforts to revive the tradition of Hadith recitals, he has taught al-Muwatta of Imam Malik, Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih al-Muslim, Sunan Abi Dawud, Jami’ al-Tirmidhi and he intends to ﬁnish all the main six books of Hadith in the coming terms insha’Allah.
He has travelled extensively and participated in conferences, delivered lectures and taught intensive programmes. Additionally, he has delivered Friday speeches in Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Pakistan, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain, Canada, the United States, Indonesia, Singapore, South Africa, Morocco and the UK. Over a thousand people have embraced Islam at his hands and many have repented after listening to him. He is a scion of the prophetic household, a torch bearer in this time and a charismatic public speaker in both Arabic and English.
wa Allaahu Alam,
and Allaah knows best!
