Harm or benefit only by the Will of Allah


A: No one can harm or benefit anybody except by the will of Allah. Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them) narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated, Learn that if all the people were to gather together to benefit you in some way, they would not benefit you except in something that Allah has decreed for you, and if they were to gather together to harm you in some way, they would not harm you except in something that Allah has decreed for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried. Narrated by Al-Tirmidhy who classed it as Hadith Hasan (a Hadith whose chain of narration contains a narrator with weak exactitude, but is free from eccentricity or blemish), Sahih (a Hadith that has been transmitted by people known for their uprightness and exactitude; free from eccentricity and blemish). It was previously mentioned that it is impermissible to seek treatment from the likes of such a woman, or to ask them, or believe them. (Part No. 1; Page No. 613) They should be denounced and reported to the rulers so that they will be punished accordingly. It is impermissible to protect or defend them, as they are extremely dangerous and deceitful to Muslims.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
