CLARIFICATION: Tahir Wyatt, Shadeed Muhammad, and the Nation of Islam

IMPORTANT: Students at Saudi universities are reminded not to scan, copy, or take pictures of classified government documents (like internal memos listing accepted students), even if you are only trying to spread news of accepted students. Request curious applicants to be patient until they are contacted by the university or public information is made available. Failure to comply may result in serious legal action which could jeopardize your studies and status in the Kingdom.

(It is said to them) Regarding what you have come across of such-and-such (a specific form of misguidance), what you have learned, like such-and-such, and/or the manners you have taken from your environment, like intermingling, etc., these issues must all be weighed on the scale of the Sharee’ah (divinely revealed Islaamic Legislation), like how the scholars base issues of jurisprudence upon the legislative evidences (of the Book and the Sunnah). Whatever is in line with it (the Sharee’ah) remains, and whatever opposes it must be cast aside, even if Continue reading
