YASIR QADHI ADMITS TO STILL HAVING DOUBTS FROM STUDYING AT YALE UNIVERSITY

 

Warning: The video linked in this post has a sister who has not covered herself fully, so would request brothers who wish to listen to the video to avert their gaze and fear Allaah. Easiest way is to hit play then open another tab on your browser so you can listen without the need to watch the video.

We learn as we study some of the most basic aspects of aqeedah (Islamic belief) that the statement ‘La ilaha ‘illa Allaah’  has conditions for it’s acceptability before Allaah and that one of the conditions is ‘Al-Yaqeen,’ meaning certainty.

But here Yasir Qadhi himself admits to still having doubts and that these doubts developed whilst studying Islamic studies with the Kuffar at Yale University.

“Wallahi I’ll be honest with you, the shubahaat I was exposed to at Yale, some of those I still don’t have answers to.”
Yasir Qadhi

For some people the position of Yasir Qadhi has already become clear, for some blind following fan-club members nothing, not the released emails confirming his doubts, nor this video with a direct confession to those doubts will be enough but I hope that for most of you who are in worried about whether it is permissible or good to take ilm from Yasir Qadhi that  this video will be sufficient for you.

May Allaah guide Yasir Qadhi and us all to the Haqq and keep us firm upon it with Yaqeen, bring us back the Yasir Qadhi of old, pre-Yale days we loved so much and help this ummah as we strive and struggle to establish our deen, ameen.

  1. This is what happens when people think their relationship with Allah and Islam are infallible. They go to college, take some philosophy or religious studies courses then end up finding out their taqwa is not as strong as they thought.

  2. What kind of perversion is this, to describe a hijabi woman as “a sister who has not covered herself fully”? Do the “brothers” are you addressing not have that much taqwa so as to not watch this video without leering at this woman? And what about you, sir?

    1. Did you just read the first few words of that paragraph then skip the rest?

      As for the sister, is my statement accurate? is she covered ‘fully’, i.e niqab, no. I am of the opinion that we need to revive women scholars, but there is no need to look at the woman to do so and Aisha radiallahu anha used to teach the men from behind the curtain of her home.

      Allah commands us to lower our gaze, He does not command us to just look but don’t go leering or you’ve gone too far.
