FIRM GROUND
FOUNDATIONS FOR CLARIFYING TEXTUAL MISINTERPRETATION 
By Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda

When the very things you hold dear are under constant attack, not knowing how to respond is often the precursor to a crisis of faith. This class covers the most commonly misinterpreted source texts in Islam, refutes doubts and develops a methodology to understanding them. There is no beating around the bush here. Discuss matters head on like reasons people leave Islam, attacks on Quran, accusations of gender bias, issues from the Seerah, and the nature of the Islamic penal code.

Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and at the age of 10 began the road to knowledge by moving to Karachi, Pakistan, and memorizing the entire Qur’an in less than one year.

After graduating from high school, he continued his studies abroad at the renowned Jamia Binoria and graduated from its demanding seven year program in 2002 at the top of his class with numerous licenses to teach in various Islamic Sciences. Along with the Alim Course he concurrently completed a B.A. and M.A. in Arabic from Karachi University. He also obtained a Masters in Islamic Studies from the University of Sindh. He taught Arabic at the University of Texas at Arlington from 2005 to 2007. He served as the Imam at the Colleyville Masjid in the Dallas area for three years. He is a founding member and chairman of Mansfield Islamic Center.

He has served as an instructor and curriculum advisor to various Islamic schools and Islamic studies programs including Qalam Seminary for which he is the founder and director. His latest projects include Quran Intensive (a summer program focusing on Arabic grammar and Tafsir), Quranic analysis lectures, Khateeb Training, chronicling of the Prophetic Biography, and personally mentoring and teaching his students at the Qalam Seminary.

His light-hearted nature and southern warmth make him one of the most sought-after speakers on the international scene.

Lost and Found

Lost and Found
 

We have a lot of items that were found in DAT property.  Items are consists of the following”
-          Jewelry
-          Valuable watches
-          Smart phones.

The Islamic center is not liable for any personal losses, It is not permissible for anyone to pick up any kind of lost property unless he can be sure that he will deal with it properly and that he is able to make the necessary announcements, based on  the hadeeth of Zayd ibn Khaalid al-Juhani (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was asked about lost gold and silver. He said, ‘Know the details of the purse and the string, then announce it for a year. If no one claims it, then dispose of it, and it is like a trust in your hands. Then if the owner comes along some day, give it to him.”

The meaning of the phrase “Know the purse and the string” refers to the kind of purse or wallet that money is kept in and the way it is fastened or tied up.  The meaning of the phrase “then announce it for a year” is that it should be mentioned to people in the places where they gather, such as in market places and by the doors of the mosque etc. “A year” means for one full year. In the first week after it is found, it should be announced every day, because it is more likely that the owner will come in that first week. After that it should be announced as often as is customary among the people.

This was the method of announcing lost property in the past. Nowadays people should make lost and found announcements in whatever way is appropriate. What matters is achieving the desired result, so one must do whatever it takes to return property to its rightful owner. 

The hadeeth indicates that it is obligatory to know exactly what the lost property is. The phrase “Know the purse and the strings” indicates that it is obligatory to know what it looks like, so that if the owner comes and describes it properly, it can be given to him, but if his description is at odds with the true description, then it is not permissible to give it to him.

The phrase “If no one claims it, then dispose of it” indicates that the finder takes possession of the property after one year has passed and after announcing it, but he should not dispose of it before he knows exactly what it is, i.e., until he knows “the purse and the string”, and he knows its value, nature and description. If the original owner comes along some time later, and describes it accurately, he should then give it to him, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “If someone comes looking for it someday, then give it to him.”

If someone comes looking for it and describes it properly, it must be given to him without asking him for proof or to swear an oath, because of the command of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to that effect, and because his precise description is sufficient in the place of proof or an oath. Indeed, his description may be clearer and more honest than proof or an oath. He should also be given any increase, whether attached or separate. But if he is not able to describe it, then it should not be given to him, because it is a trust in the hands of the finder, and it is not permissible for him to give it to someone who cannot prove that he is the owner.
