Understanding the Freemasons by the Permanent Committee

The following is a summary translation taken from

Question number 1: A (Muslim) man died and he had previous requested to be buried in a coffin; what is the ruling concerning this?

Question number 2: A Muslim man who was a member of the freemasons died. The Muslims performed the funeral prayer over him and then the Masons performed the rituals of the freemasons over him; so what is the ruling concerning a person who has these rituals performed over him, or the one who advises that these rituals should be performed over him in the event of his death?  

Question number 3: Who are the freemasons and what is the Islamic ruling concerning them?

Answer: It was not known during the life of the Prophet peace and prayers are upon him; that they would bury the dead in a casket, nor was this known during the time of the companions; and that which is best for the Muslim is that he conducts himself upon they way of the companions.

And for this reason it is hated to place the corpse in a casket regardless if the ground is hard, soft, or wet. Therefore if someone has been entrusted to bury the dead in a casket then he should not fulfill this bequeath.

Imam As-Shafi has allowed burial in a casket if the ground is wet or soft, and he only allowed it if this condition was present.

The Freemasons are a secret political organization; their goal is to eliminate religion and morality and to establish man-made laws and a non religious system in place of the religious system.

They exert their efforts in provoking constant revolt and overthrowing the leadership and replacing them with another; all of this is done under the pretext of freedom of thought and freedom of belief.

And this is confirmed by what was announced by the Masons during the student conference which convened in the year 1865, in the city of Liege (Belgium) which is considered to be one of the centers of Freemasonry
He said: It is a requirement that man must prevail over God, and declare war on Him. And he should demolish the heavens and tear them like paper.

And this is confirmed by what was mentioned in the Masonic Grand Lodge (1922, p. 98): We will strengthen the freedom of individual thought with all the powers at our disposal, and we will declare a major war against the real enemy of man, which is religion.

And this is confirmed by what was mentioned by the Masons; they say verily the Freemasons take the human soul as its object of worship.
They say:  It is not enough for us to prevail over the religious people and their places of worship; rather our basic goal is to wipe them out of existence.

Minutes of the World Masonic Conference, 1903 CE, p. 102.
And their statement: Freemasonry will take the place of religion and its Lodges will take the place of places of worship and there are many other statements which clearly point to the intensity of their enmity towards religion and their uncompromising war on religion.

The Freemasons are one of the most ancient secret societies which still exist and its origins are still unknown, and their goals are still unknown to many of the people; rather this is still unknown to many of its members. This is because their leaders are very keen to conceal their plots and hidden deceptions. And due to their attentiveness in remaining secret they did not lay out a pact stating their goals nor their intended results or purpose. And due to their secrecy most of their affairs are conducted verbally, with no written record.

When they want to write an idea or announce it to the public, it is first subjected to the scrutiny of Masonic censorship committee who decide whether it may be released or not.

The principles of Freemasonry were based on theories taken from several sources, mostly from Jewish traditions. This is supported by the fact that Jewish ideas and teachings were taken as the basis for the founding of the Grand Lodge in 1717 CE with its principles and symbols.

The Masons still venerate the Jew Hiram and they venerate the temple that he built, and they venerate the place of worship he constructed to the extent that they took it as the design of the Masonic lodges in the world.

The grand masters of the Freemasons are Jews and they form the backbone of the Masonic movement, and they are the ones who represent Jewish organizations in Masonic lodges. And they are responsible for the spread of Masonry and global cooperation between Freemasons and they are the driving force behind Freemasonry.

And the Jewish elite are responsible for leading secret cells, managing their affairs, and devising their plans, and directing them secretly as they wish.

This is supported by a report in the Masonic Acacia magazine (1908, issue no. 66) which says, there is no Masonic lodge that is free of Jews and that all the Jews do not follow one way or another exclusively; rather there are only principles for them to follow, and this is also the case with the Masons. As a result the Jewish synagogues are our [Masons] support and we find a large number of Jews among the Freemasons.

This is also supported by what it says in the Masonic publications: that verily the Jews are certain that the best means of destroying religion is Freemasonry; and the history of the Freemasons is similar to the history of the Jews in belief.

Their symbol is the six-pointed Star of David. The Jews and the Freemasons both consider themselves to be the spiritual sons of the builders of the Temple of Solomon, and the Freemasons who distort other religions open the door wide open to support Judaism and its followers.

The Jews took advantage of peoples simple-mindedness and good intentions, and infiltrated Freemasonry and reached high positions within it, thus they breathed a Jewish spirit into the Masonic lodges and subjugated them to their own aims.

One of the clearest indications of their intense desire to conceal their plans to destroy religions and provoke political revolutions is what it says in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, where it says: we will concentrate these cells under a single leadership that is known to us alone.

This leadership will be composed of our scholars and these cells will have special representatives, so that the true location of our leadership will be concealed. This leadership alone will have the right to decide who will speak, and to draw up the plans of the day.

In these cells we will plan to lay traps and snares for all the socialists and classes of revolutionary society. Most of the secret political plans are known to us and we will decide when to implement them. But the agents of the international secret police will be members of these cells.

When the conspiracies start throughout the world; that will mean that one of our most dedicated agents will be at the head of these conspiracies and of course we will be the only people to direct the Masonic plans. We are the only people who know how to direct them and we know the ultimate goal of each action, while the illiterates  meaning non Jews are ignorant of most of these things, especially Masonry, and they can only see the immediate results of what they are doing.

And there is other evidence which points to the strong connection between the Jews and the Masons, and the cooperation between the two parties in revolutionary conspiracies and stirring up destructive movements.

Even though Freemasonry outwardly appears to be a call to freedom of belief, tolerance and social reform in general, in fact it is really a call for permissiveness and destructive factors which cause social disintegration and the loosening of bonds between nations and destruction of religion and morals and the spread of mischief.

Based on this; any Muslim who joins a Masonic group knowing the true nature of Freemasonry and its secrets, and carries out its rituals and is keen to do so, is a disbeliever who should be asked to repent. If he repents, then this is good, otherwise he is to be put to death [by order of the Muslim ruler] and if he dies in that state then his recompense will be that of the disbelievers.

Whoever joins the Freemasons but does not know what they really are, or know about their plots against Islam and the Muslims, and their spreading evil and the evil that they are planning against everyone who tries to bring people together and reform nations, and he joins them in their general activities and talk that does not apparently contradict Islam, then this person is not a disbeliever, rather he is excused in general because of their concealing their true nature from him, and because he does not share their basic beliefs in creed nor does he share their goals, nor did he map out the way for them to achieve their vile goals.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Verily actions are only based upon the intentions, and each person will have that which they intended.
But it is a must that he disavows himself from them when he finds out what they are about, and he has to expose their reality to the people and strive to spread their secrets and their plots against the Muslims, so that this will be a disgrace for them and will undermine their efforts.

Therefore it is befitting that the Muslim surround himself with good people who will cooperate with him in his religious and worldly affairs. He should be far-sighted in choosing close friends so that he will be safe from being tempted by these apparently attractive ideas and be safe from the evil consequences of sly words, and so he will not fall into the traps of the people of shirk which they set up to ensnare those who are easily deceived, follow their whims and desires and are weak in reasoning.

And with Allah lies all success, and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.

Sayyid Qutb and his relationship to Masonry !

سيد قطب وعلاقته بالماسونية ! ( مقال استوقفني

الحمد لله وحده والصلاة والسلام على من لا نبي بعده وعلى آله وصحبه .
أما بعد :
فقد لفت انتباهي وأنا أقرأ بعض الأبحاث الإشارة إلى رسالة علمية لنيل درجة الماجستير
تناولت ( الماسونية في مصر )
فبحث عنها في الشبكة فلم أظفر بها .
لكني وقفت على ملخص لها في كثير من المواقع بقلم ( إبراهيم عيسى )
وإن كان الكاتب مجهولا عندي .
لكن ما دفعني لنقل كلامه أمران :
الأول : أن يتحفنا الأخوة بتصديق أو نقدٍ لما كتب الكاتب ممن وقفوا على الكتاب الأصل
والثاني : تنبيه من لا علم عنده بعلاقة سيد قطب بالماسونية ، بحسب ما نسب إليه في
رسالة أكاديمية ، لعلهم يعيدون النظر في تقييمهم له .

فإلى المقال :

يقول إبراهيم عيسى :
" كلما عبرت من صفحة إلي أخري انتابتك هذه الأسئلة العميقة الآسرة في حياتك، هل ما
نعيشه مجرد خدعة؟ هل هناك مؤامرة منذ مئات السنين تقود مصر وتنقاد لها ونحن غفل أو

مشكلة هذه الدراسة ليست في معلوماتها الموثقة ولا الحقائق التي تزيح عنها التراب
وتنزعها من مخابئها بل في مدي فرط معلوماتها المزعجة التي تدفعك إما إلي الشك في كل
هذه المعلومات (رغم ثبوتها السخيف!) أو أن تسلم بقنوط بأن رجال مصر الكبار
المؤثرين القادة والفاعلين في تاريخنا كانوا إما أنهم ضحكوا علينا أو كانوا مضحوكاً

الدراسة تحمل عنوان (الماسونية والماسون في مصر) وهي في الأصل رسالة ماجستير نالها
المؤلف وائل إبراهيم الدسوقي بإشراف واحد من أساتذة التاريخ الكبار هو دكتور
أحمد زكريا الشلق وصدرت كتابا عن سلسلة مصر النهضة بدار الكتب.

ولعل الجميع قد صادف يوماً تعبير الماسونية في حياته مذكوراً بالسب والاتهام وملحقا
بالطعن والرجم، وبينما يظل تعريف الماسونية غامضاً عند الكثيرين فإنهم يحتفظون
بصورة نمطية عنها شديدة السوء والسواد، وبعيدا عن أصول لفظ الماسونية والتي تعني
البناء الحر ومن ثم فالماسونيون هم البناءون الأحرار، والماسونية تنظيم رغم علانية
وجوده في بعض الدول فإنه تنظيم سري عالمي له طقوسه وقواعده الخفية وتركيبته صارمة
وهياكله التنظيمية شديدة السرية والتعقيد وهو تنظيم متهم بأنه يدير العالم عبر
محافله السرية التي تضم قيادات وشخصيات من جميع بلاد الدنيا تحت شعارات أخلاقية، لكن
السؤال الآن: هل الماسونية كانت قريبة جدا من مصر؟

العجيب أن دراسة وائل إبراهيم الدسوقي تقول إنها ليست قريبة من مصر فقط بل
لعلها نشأت في مصر أصلاً!

فقد رأي بعض المؤرخين أن الماسونية من حيث مبادئها وتعاليمها مصرية، وبعبارة أخري
إن التعاليم الماسونية كانت موجودة في مصر، وتعمل علي أسلوب قريب من أسلوب
الماسونية، وبنظم تقترب كثيراً من نظم الماسونية، الأمر الذي حمل بعضهم إلي القول بأن
الجمعية الماسونية فرع من الكهانة المصرية، أو أنها ظهرت في العصر المسيحي أو بعد
الفتح الإسلامي لمصر، واستدلوا علي صدق دعواهم بأدلة كثيرة، لكن لم يستطع أحد منهم
إثبات شيء مؤكد. لكن تسرد الدراسة أمثلة تستحق الانتباه اللافت منها حكاية لوحة
فانوس، وهي اللوحة الجدارية المعلقة علي جدران كنيسة الأنبا ريوس ببطريركية
الأقباط الأرثوذكس بالعباسية وهي لوحة رسمها فنان مصري مسيحي وهو إيزاك فانوس،
واللوحة ملونة (متر وعشرون سم في أربعين سم) وكتب تحتها بالقبطية الأب باخوم
أبوالمديرية، واللوحة تمثل الأب باخوم (292م ــ 347م) يمسك بيساره لفافة يمكن
التخمين بأنها تحمل كلمات من الكتاب المقدس، وفي اليد اليمني أمسك بالزاوية
والفرجار، ولذلك فهي تثير الكثير من التساؤلات التي تحتمل العديد من الإجابات عنها،
فمن المعلوم أن الزاوية والفرجار لم يمثلا يوماً رموزاً مسيحية، ولا تعطيهما المسيحية
أي قداسة، فلماذا يصور الأب باخوم بالرموز الماسونية؟ ولأول وهلة يمكن أن نحكم علي
الأب باخوم بالماسونية، وبالتالي ندلل بذلك علي وجود الماسونية في مصر في العصر
البيزنطي، ومما يدعم ذلك أن الأب كيرلس ـ بطريرك الإسكندرية في الفترة (384م ــ
412م) ـ مُصوَّر في كنيسة العذراء ـ إحدي الكنائس التي تخدم الأرثوذكس المصريين في لوس
أنجلوس بالولايات المتحدة الأمريكية ـ وهو يتكئ علي عامود قصير من الطراز الروماني،
وهو تقليد غير متبع في تصوير القديسين بالفن المسيحي، لكنه متبع في تصوير الأساتذة
العظام في الماسونية، فالعامود رمز مهم من رموز الماسونية. والملاحظ هنا أن القاسم
المشترك بين اللوحتين هو من رسمهما وهو إيزاك فانوس، مما يجعلنا نرجح أن فانوس
ماسوني أخذته الحماسة الماسونية حتي صور الأب باخوم والأب كيرلس بالرموز الماسونية.

إذا كانت هذه القصة شدت انتباهك فإليك أخري، فيذكر المؤرخون أن (ابن طولون) حين
شرع في بناء الجامع كلف مهندسا مسيحيا ماسونيا ببنائه فجاء معمار الجامع أقرب إلي
الهندسة الماسونية ناطقا برموزها وشعاراتها كما يذهب عدد من المؤرخين وينفي آخرون.

لكن متي نشأت المحافل الماسونية في مصر؟

يقول وائل الدسوقي إن ترجيحات كثيرة تقول إن المحافل بدأت فعليا مع الحملة
الفرنسية إلي مصر وتأسس معها محفل فرنسي للماسونية وهو ما صبغ نشأة الماسونية
كلها بمحافلها بالطابع الأجنبي داخل القاهرة والإسكندرية وعواصم الأقاليم المصرية
كذلك سواء في طنطا أو المنصورة أو الزقازيق، وضمن أجانب إلي جانب مصريين كثيرين من
رموز المجتمعات ووجهاء البلد وأعيانها وسياسييها ومثقفيها بل وشيوخها ولكن عمليا
في أكتوبر 1876 التأم المحفل المصري الأكبر والأشمل وسمي محفل الشرق الوطني المصري الأعظم
وكرس بحضور الموظفين والمندوبين من قبل المحافل العظمي والأجنبية، والتي بلغ عددها حوالي
ثمانين محفلاً في مصر كانت تحت رعاية رسمية من الدولة، ولم يزل مقر المحفل الأعظم في
القاهرة حتي منعت الماسونية في مصر في عام 1964، وقرر المحفل الأكبر الوطني المصري
انتخاب الخديو توفيق باشا أستاذاً أعظم له، فذهب وفد من الماسون لمقابلته وعرضوا
عليه الرئاسة قائلين: إنه إذا لم يشد أزرهم آل أمر الماسونية الوطنية إلي
الاضمحلال، فوافق الخديو علي طلبهم وقبل أن يكون رئيساً للمحافل المصرية ووعدهم
بالمساندة والمعاضدة، كما اعتذر عن عدم الحضور في الاجتماعات لدواع مختلفة، وكلف
ناظره للحقانية حسين فخري باشا لينوب عنه في الرئاسة. وفي عام 1890 طلب الخديو
توفيق إعفاءه من الرئاسة العملية في المحفل الأكبر الوطني المصري ليتولاها غيره من
أبناء الشعب تشجيعاً لهم، وعقد أعضاء المحفل الأكبر اجتماعاً في 9 يناير سنة 1890،
وانتخبوا رئيساً جديداً هو إدريس بك راغب؟

ومع ظهور هذا الاسم تحفر الماسونية طريقا جديدا نشيطا وهائلا

This post reminds me of one of my many, many trips in the early nineties to spread the da'wah while in Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska.

During the questions and answers, I had a very intriguing discussion with a Muslim captain who was also a high ranking member in the Masons.

He tried with everything he had to defend the fact that it was permissible to be both - Muslim and Mason - which caused me to remember the statement of Imaam Ash-Shaafi'ee:

"I never debated an ignorant person except that I lost...!"

In meeting the Muslims in St. Lucia, they informed me the person in charge of the Jumu'ah (and the land purchased for a masjid) in Antigua is indeed a Mason and claims to be a Muslim.

Allaah save us!

Question: Some of the people - by what's been called "Interfaith Dialogue" - are claiming that those who Islaam hasn't yet reached cannot be called kuffar (disbelievers) because the evidence hasn't been established upon them. So, we ask you Shaikh, if you can explain this issue of making takfeer on those who haven't embraced Islaam yet because the message hasn't reached them.

Answer by Shaikh 'Ubaid al-Jabiree (hafidhahullaah):


This school of thought which you are mentioning are the exact thoughts of Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi who's an Egyptian Islamic doctor who lives in Qatar, and he is not trustworthy regarding the Religion. He is a servant of the freemasson; he gives da'wah promoting the unity of religions and that which was led by Hasan Turaaby from Sudan. We know from the Qur`aan, the Sunnah and the Consensus of Scholars that people are of two types - and there is no third........
