Please comment on mufti Ebrahim Desai quoting Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) in support of the lockdown measures. In this regard, he cites the following advice of Hadhrat Thanvi:

“Maulana Thaanvi RA advised, avoid disrespect to 3 people:

1) People in Authority, 2) Landlord, 3) Son-in-Law.”

We see the wisdom in this advice during the lockdown. Don’t put yourself in an embarrassing situation. Avoid
embarrassment to Islam and Muslims.”   (End of Ebrahim Desai’s statement).

Does his statement hold Islamic validity?


His statement is bunkum advice, the effect of bootlicking.


Maajin Mufti Ebrahim Desai has become a bootlicker. By degrees he has drifted from Siraatul Mustaqeem.
He is incrementally following in the footsteps of the munaafiqeen. Currently he is decidedly a fence sitter.
If he continues along the path of dhalaal, he will end up in the camp of the munaafiqeen.


Hadhrat Thanvi’s quote has no relationship with the current bogus corona saga.


Besides the three persons mentioned by Hadhrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh), all people, Muslims and non-Muslims, to the exclusion of the munaafiqeen and zanaadaqah, are to be respected within the confines of the Shariah. Respect precludes bootlicking, stupid flattery and concealment of the Haqq.


No intelligent Muslim advocates disrespect for the government, for the landlord, for the son-in-law or for anyone else. What is advocated, condoned and propagated is to abstain from respecting and honouring the people of bid’ah and the munaafiqeen, and such maajin muftis who open the pathway to Jahannam for the masses.  Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Whoever honours a man of bid’ah, verily he has aided in the demolition of Islam.” When a faasiq is honoured, the Arsh of Allah shudders.


There are many similar Nusoos which proscribe respecting and honouring such juhala, fussaaq, fujjaar and zanaadaqah who constitute a danger to the Imaan of the masses. In our time, there is a glut of molvis, muftis and sheikhs whose bootlicking constitutes a danger for the Imaan of the masses.


The policy of shaitaani silence propagated by the likes of these maajin muftis comes within the purview of the Qur’aanic Aayat:

“Why do their ahbaar and ruhbaan not prevent the people from sinful statements and consumption of haraam?”


These bootlickers are among the worst of scoundrels who dig the foundations of the Deen. The moron mufti has abortively attempted to extravasate haraam capital from Hadhrat Thanvi’s statement which does not have the remotest relationship with the current shaitaani conspiracy.


For the edification of Mr. Ebrahim Desai, we say: Avoid embarrassment to Islam and Muslims by refraining from bootlicking, from having two tongues, from fence-sitting, from leaning towards the munaafiqeen.”

And, in the words of the Qur’aan Majeed, we say to him and his miserable ilk:


“Scram! (and perish) therein (in Jahannam), and do not speak to ME (Allah).”

(Al-Mu’minoon, Aayat 108)

In emulation and in adoption of this Qur’aanic tone stemming from the address of Allah Ta’ala to the Jahannamis, we say to this wayward maajin mufti:

Scram! Voetsek! Get Lost! Drown in the cesspool of inequity which you and your like are preparing for the community. Beware of Allah’s Athaab. You will suffer and not escape Allah’s Apprehension.
