Asalam mu alaikum wr wb. I want to know what the scholars have defined who is included into the term of ahlul qiblah. Does this include people such as Qadiyanis and Nation of islam, of course they are kuffar but are they from ahlul qiblah? Is ahlul qiblah anyone who prays towards mecca? Is their different treatment for those who are from ahlul qiblah but are kuffar, to those who are kuffar but not from ahlul qiblah? Jazak Allah khair
The people of Qiblah are those who:
1. believe in the same kalimah as us(without any additions and subtractions).
2. eat our dhabeeha(slaughtered animals )”
3. follow our qiblah in salaah and perform salaah in the same mannewr.
4. abide to the same pillars of Islaam.
IF ANYONE DOES NOT ABIDE TO ALL OF THESE THEN HE IS NOT OF THE AHLUL QIBLAH
Asalam mau alaikum. Jazak Allah khair skaykh for your reply, I hope not to sound rude but have you come to these conclusions from statements of the salaf? If so can I please request the qoutes. Jazak Allah khair.
Anyway the book AQEEDATUT TAHAAWIYYAH has the ruling of whom the ahlul qiblah are. Also in saheehul bukhaari in the chapter on Salaat.and abu dawood the hadith is to be found. Rasoolullaah :SAAWS: said” the one who perform salaat as us and faces our qiblah and eats our slaughtered animals are lof us(muslim). ” In that manner there are many more ahaadeeth.
