DESANCTIFYING THE QUR’AAN MAJEED

GLORIFIED KUFR –DESANCTIFYING THE QUR’AAN MAJEED
The MJC’s mock ‘ceremonial handover’ of the Qur’aan Majeed to the South African Defence Force, was an act of kufr. The Kalaam of Allah Azza Wa Jal was desanctified by the ‘camouflage’ cover which was a kuffaar ‘military specification’ to which the Qur’aan Majeed was subjected and denigrated.

The MJC’s juhala molvis and sheikhs have no conception of the imperative Tahaarat requisites for handling the Qur’aan Majeed. It is never permissible to hand copies of the Qur’aan Majeed to an entity which in Qur’aanic terms is RIJS. Persons who are perpetually in the state of janaabat defile the sanctity of the Glorious Qur’aan with their hands and ways of handling. When even Muslims are not allowed to handle the Qur’aan Majeed without Wudhu, what fatwa must be passed on the MJC juhala/munaafiqeen for their perpetration of this dastardly kufr act of assigning the Kalaam of Allah Ta’ala to those who are perpetual repositories of kufr and janaabat?

According to the Shariah, it is also haraam for Muslims to join any appendage of the government. All laws and methodologies of governments, even in Muslim lands of this era, are haraam and kufr. It is therefore, not permissible for Muslims to join even the armed forces in Muslim countries. The prohibition is more emphatic in non-Muslim countries.

The MJC’s haraam act is glorified kufr. It is difficult to accept that these people are Muslims. That they are shayaateenul ins is more readily comprehensible. There is nothing of Islam and its Sunnah remaining in these miscreant, fussaaq and fujjaar ‘sheikhs’ and ‘molvis’. They are fully within the purview of the Hadith in which Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“An age will dawn when the worst of the people under the canopy of the sky will be their ulama from who will emanate fitnah, and this fitnah will rebound on them.”

The ceremony conducted by the gang of MJC fussaaq to hand over the Qur’aan Majeed decorated with a silly and stupid cover, is indeed ludicrous and haraam. About their vermiculated brains, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Allah casts RIJS on those who have no intelligence.”

RESPECT FOR THE QUR’AN

RESPECT, REVERENCE and love for the Qur’aan Shareef are inborn in the heart of a Muslim. In former days, there was no need to teach Madrasah going children how to carry the Kalaam of Allah Ta’ala. Just as a duckling naturally swims when it enters the water, so too the Muslim child of not so long ago (during our childhood days), naturally and automatically knew how to handle and carry the most sacred Book on earth.
All Madrasah pupils would naturally hold the Qur’aan Majeed to their breast, never at their sides, never slung over their shoulders in bags, never ever holding it below the navel or in line with the satr as has become the repugnant style nowadays.
DISRESPECT
Parents and teachers are all blameworthy for the gross disrespect which children show to the Qur’aan Majeed. Schools with their liberal norms of immorality have all but effaced the demands of Imaan . Madrasah Ustaadhs and parents have to assume greater part of the blame for allowing their pupils/children to carry the Qur’aan Majeed in bags in the way they carry and defile their secular school books.
There is only one way in which the Kalaam of Allah Azza Wa Jal may be carried. It has to be held to the breast/heart. It is indeed perfidious and insolent for a Muslim child to walk with a copy of the Qur’aan Majeed slung on the back or hanging in a bag from the shoulder dangling at the side below navel-level. Is this the reverence and respect parents and Madrasah Ustaadhs have for Allah’s Kalaam?
ETIQUETTE
It is necessary for both the Ustaadhs and parents to diligently educate their children in the proper etiquette of handling the Qur’aan Majeed. Children should be instructed to enclose the Qur’aan Majeed in the old fashioned cloth-coverings (Juzdaan), and held with reverence and love to their heart. If this reverence for the Kitaab of Allah is not inculcated in children, the defilement
which the Qur’aan Majeed will suffer at their hands in later years will not be surprising. If anyone is desirous to observe what defilement of the Qur’aan Majeed is in physical terms, he should visit the Haramain Shareefain to witness the most shocking acts of defilement and blasphemy to which Allah’s Kalaam is subjected. May Allah Ta’ala protect us.
NATURAL
Times have drastically changed. What was yesterday natural for children, has to be inculcated in them with much effort today. Natural attributes of Imaan have been eroded and even effaced by the preponderance of secularism, immorality and kufr in which they wallow the greater part of their developing and formative years. It is of vital importance in the interests of healthy
Imaan for parents and Ustaadhs to divest themselves of the insensitivity they display towards the tarbiyat of the children under their jurisdiction.

SALAAT AND SAUM IN ‘ABNORMAL’ TIME ZONES

SALAAT AND SAUM IN ‘ABNORMAL’ TIME ZONES

In some regions in proximity to the North Pole, e.g. Norway, the times in relation to the rest of the world are abnormal. Some days after sunset and even before disappearance of shufuq abyadh (the whitish glow in the western horizon after the redish glow), the sun rises. Thus, the time of Isha does not set in. In some regions the sun remains above the horizon for six months, and in some places it is night for six months.

       The classical Fuqaha had discussed and elaborated on this issue. According to one group of Fuqaha, Isha and all other Salaat remain obligatory and have to be performed in view of the command of five Fardh Salaat daily, which is substantiated by the Sunnah.

       The Sunnah has not excluded any land from this obligation. These Fuqaha base their ruling on the Hadith which says that during the era of Dajjal there will be a day the equivalent of one year. It will be a long day. The Sahaabah queried the performance of Salaat on that day. Will only five Salat be performed in that marathon day of a year? Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) explained that the times of Salaat will be calculated. That is: Five Salaat for every 24 hours.

       According to the other Fuqaha, the five Salaat are conditional with their five specific times. If the incidence of a specific Salaat time does not develop in a region, then that particular Salaat is waived. They present the analogy of Wudhu which has Four Fardh acts according to the Hanafi Math-hab. If both feet have been amputated, the fardh of washing the feet falls away. Similarly, the Fardh Salaat will be waived if its time does not develop in many regions.

       Regarding the Hadith pertaining to the era of Dajjaal, these Fuqaha are of the opinion that since it is in conflict with Qiyaas (Analogical Reason), it may not be presented as a basis for a ruling. In terms of the Usool of Fiqh, the Khilaaf-e-Qiyaas narration shall be confined to its original purpose and not be used as a basis for extrapolation for extending the ruling to another issue.

       Shaikh Akbar Muhayyuddeen Ibn Arabi (rahmatullah alayh) has elucidated this issue in his Futuhaat.  According to him, the event of the long day during the era of Dajjaal will in reality not be one year literally. The times of Salaat will be normal. However, due to the deception of Dajjaal people will not observe the movement of the sun, sunrise and sunset. The people will perceive this day to be as long as a year.

SERVING FOOD WHEN MAKING KHATAM OF THE QUR’AAN SHAREEF

Q. It is mentioned in the Hadith that when Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) had completed hifz of Surah Baqarah, he sacrificed a camel out of happiness. On the basis of this will it be permissible to serve food when making khatam of the Qur’aan Shareef?
A. The act of Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) is not a basis for any of the customs in vogue among people. Hadhrat Umar’s act was not in fulfillment of a custom. It was done spontaneously as a result of his happiness when he had accomplished the hifz of Surah Baqarah in eight years. He did not organize a party nor was his act an ostentatious gathering of waste such as the jalsahs of the present day.
If a person wishes to gain thawaab and give Sadqah to the poor in gratitude to Allah Ta’ala for the Ni’mat of Hifz, he is free to do so. But what is the need to organize a party, have speeches, sing songs, invite wealthy and bloated people to participate, etc., etc. Such gatherings are far—very far—from the simple act of Sadqah of Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu). There is no resemblance between the extravagant parties of show (riyaa) and Hadhrat Umar’s simple deed of Sadqah. By all means give Sadqah in abundance and unostentatiously. There is no need for publicity and advertisement. There is no need to feed people who eat five times a day. The nafs presents deceptive arguments to substantiate bid’ah and shaitaaniyat.
Numerable Sahaabah made hifz of the Qur’aan Shareef. Did anyone of them organize a jalsah, a party or any type of gathering? Did anyone of them follow the act of Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu)? Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) was a Haafiz of the Qur’aan. Did he repeat his performance of sacrificing a camel when he completed hifz of the Qur’aan? Did he invite people to a feast? Did he organize a jalsah?
The sacrificing of a camel by Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) was a personal preference in a moment of extreme delight. It never was the intention to initiate a custom, hence no one ever followed him in this act. If there was a need for feasting and merrymaking on the occasion of a khatam, then such practices would have gained prominence during the Khairul Quroon. Hifz of the Qur’aan is not something new or peculiar to this age. Personal preferences of the Sahaabah were not transformed into regular customs to be observed by the Ummah.
At most it can be said that it is good to give Sadqah as an expression of gratitude to Allah Ta’ala for a ni’mat. But giving Sadqah is in many forms. No particular form may be established as a custom to be observed with incumbency, ostentation, waste, riya and pride which grace the jalsahs, gatherings and so-called Deeni ceremonies of our times. And, if someone is over-eager in the desire to emulate Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu), then when he completes the Hifz of Surah Baqarah let him sacrifice a camel or its value in money. Let him give this amount in Sadqah to the poor and refrain from any jalsah when he completes Hifz. He will then have some resemblance with this Sunnat which was the peculiarity of Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) alone.

SORRY I FORGOT TO LABEL WHICH MAJLIS THIS CAME FROM BUT I KNOW IT WAS IN 2018

Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā: Biographical Details from the Qur’ān

“And (remember) when the angels said: ‘O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allāh has chosen you, purified you, and chosen you above the women of the world [of her lifetime].
‘O Maryam! Submit yourself with obedience to your Lord [Allah, by worshipping none but Him Alone] and prostrate yourself, and bow down along with those who bow down”[1].
Sayyidunā Ibn Abbās raḍiyallāhu ‘anhuma reports that Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “The best of women among the people of Paradise are Khadija bint Khuwaylid, Fatimah bint Muḥammad, Maryam bint ‘Imran, and ‘Asiyah bint Muzahim, the wife of Pharaoh.”[2]
History, and the corrupted scriptures of the past, cannot accurately inform us about the biography of this great woman, described as such by Allāh Ta’ālā and Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam. The only reliable source for us today is the Noble Qur’ān and the authentic Sunnah. In fact, the Christians, who have made her into a deity – we seek the protection of Allāh Ta’ālā – cannot provide us with an accurate account regarding this noble, chaste and pure woman.
Now, let us stop for a moment and ask:
As a Muslim, how much do I really know about Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā?
How well can I defend the purity and chastity of this great woman from the attacks of the Modernists, Jews, Qādiyānīs, and the irreligious?
RELATED: 8 Bizarre and Offensive Kufri Beliefs from Qadiyanis
The Noble Qur’ān, pure and unchanged, is the word of Allāh Ta’ālā that accords the highest level of respect and honor to Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā, her family, and son. It surpasses the current Torah and Bible in this regard. The Noble Qur’ān has a Sūrah called Āl ‘Imrān, i.e., the family of ‘Imrān, the second longest Sūrah in the book. This is the family of Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā. Secondly, there is a Surah called ‘Maryam’. Glory be to Allāh.
The biographical details of Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā within these two Sūrahs (Sūrah Āl ‘Imrān and Sūrah Maryam) also testify to the truthfulness of Sayyidunā Muḥammad ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam because he could not have extracted them from older scriptures. The older scriptures were – and remain – self-contradictory.
1. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā is mentioned by name 24 times in the Noble Qur’ān. Maryam is the only proper name of a female present in the Noble Qur’ān. All other females have been referred to by honorifics/agnomens.
2. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā is the daughter of ‘Imrān.[3] ‘Imrān is mentioned 3 times in the Noble Qur’ān.
3. ‘Imrān’s family consisted of five members. Details regarding three of them are known: ‘Imrān, his son Hārūn and his daughter Maryam. The Noble Qur’ān does not mention the name of the wife of ‘Imrān and the other children. The great messenger, Sayyidunā Zakariyya ‘alayhi as-salām was married to the sister of Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā. Hence, Sayyidunā ‘Isā ‘alayhi as-salām (son of Maryam) and Sayyidunā Yaḥyā ‘alayhi as-salām (son of Zakariyya) are cousins.
4. This family lived in the Palestine and Jordan area.
5. ‘Imrān was an Imām, he would lead the Banī Isrā’īl in prayer and his wife was upright and pure. Allāh Ta’ālā blessed them with a daughter, Maryam.
6. The wife of ‘Imrān had made a vow that if she delivers a child, she will dedicate it to the service of Allāh Ta’ālā. Subsequently, she delivered a female and named her Maryam.[4] Maryam means ‘worshipper’ in the language of the Banū Isrā’īl. She had also asked Allāh Ta’ālā to accept her baby girl and sought protection for her from Shayṭān, the accursed.
7. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā was not touched or afflicted by Shayṭān in any way. A Ḥadīth in Ṣaḥīḥ Bukhārī states, ‘All mankind is touched by Shayṭān when they are born, except for Maryam and her son.’
8. Sayyidunā Zakariyya ‘alayhi as-salām accepted that Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā stay within the boundaries of Bayt-ul-Muqaddas and worship Allāh Ta’ālā. No other female had this honor before her. She was pure and righteous from her early years.
9. The wife of ‘Imrān handed Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā over to Sayyidunā Zakariyya ‘alayhi as-salām after she completed the breastfeeding period. Guardianship of the baby girl was given to Sayyidunā Zakariyya ‘alayhi as-salām. This was decided by drawing lots.[5]
10. Sayyidunā Zakariyya ‘alayhi as-salām was kind to Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā. He taught her and nurtured her. He would find that Allāh Ta’ālā was providing for her from His treasures when he would check on her in her chamber.[6]
11. After seeing this miracle, Sayyidunā Zakariyya ‘alayhi as-salām began to yearn for children of his own. He did not desire a child or son except that he was concerned for the people after his demise. He then asked Allāh Ta’ālā to bless him with a child, and in his old age, he was given Sayyidunā Yaḥyā ‘alayhi as-salām.[7] None before him had this name. In this way, he was given a son who was also a Messenger of Allāh Ta’ālā.
12. Sayyidunā Zakariyya ‘alayhi as-salām earned through carpentry and ate of his own earning.[8] He wanted his legacy of Nubuwwah and knowledge to carry on, not any wealth, because the Messengers do not leave inheritance in the form of wealth.[9]
13. Sayyidunā Yaḥyā ‘alayhi as-salām was born miraculously, as his father was very old and his mother had already passed child-bearing age. The same was the case with Sayyidunā Isḥāq ‘alayhi as-salām. If the Christians feel that the miraculous birth of Sayyidunā ‘Isā ‘alayhi as-salām makes him worthy of being a deity, then what about these Anbiyā’? What about Sayyidunā Ādam ‘alayhi as-salām who was created without a father and mother?
14. Allāh Ta’ālā sent an angel to Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā to convey news of a word from Allāh, a son who will be born to her by the name of ‘Isā.[10]
15. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā was pure and chaste. She was shocked at the presence of a stranger and then even more at the prospect of bearing a child.[11] This is testimony to her purity, contrary to the fabricated slanders thrown at her. May Allāh Ta’ālā protect us.
16. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā would remain in her room, a place well-known to this day, and she would not leave, except to answer the call of nature or other necessities.
17. The title ‘son of Maryam’ for Sayyidunā ‘Isā ‘alayhi as-salām is used 23 times in the Noble Qur’ān. This emphasizes that he was a human and counters the claims made by Christians that he is divine. The miraculous birth of Sayyidunā ‘Isā ‘alayhi as-salām demonstrates the great power of Allāh Ta’ālā and negates the theory of evolution too.
18. Whilst Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā had gone into seclusion, the greatest angel, Jibrīl ‘alayhi as-salām, had come to her to convey the command of Allāh Ta’ālā. She was pure, pious, and chaste. Hence, she was startled at the appearance of a stranger. She immediately sought the protection of Allāh Ta’ālā and told the stranger to fear Allāh Ta’ālā. In the same way, when Sayyidunā Yūsuf ‘alayhi as-salām was tempted by the wife of the ‘Azīz, he immediately sought the protection of Allāh Ta’ālā. He told her that he was a messenger of Allāh to announce the gift to her of a pure son.[12] Jibrīl ‘alayhi as-salām further said that this son will be a sign unto humanity and a mercy from Allāh Ta’ālā.[13]
19. The Noble Qur’ān does not describe how the soul and life was blown into Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā. That is in the knowledge and wisdom of Allāh Ta’ālā.[14]
20. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā went to a distant place, away from the eyes of people. This is reported to be east of Bethlehem.
21. The reports differ on the time period of her pregnancy. Some say it was a natural one lasting nine months. Other scholars say that it was just for a few hours. Others say she gave birth almost immediately after becoming pregnant. Allāh Ta’ālā knows best.
22. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā was alone in a far-off place with no experience and knowledge of what she was going through. She was distressed as there was no one to help her with the delivery. She was in anguish and wished for death.[15]
23. Allāh Ta’ālā sent provision of dates and fresh water for her and inspired her to tell people that she is fasting and should point to the child when asked about the child.[16]
24. The Christians claim December 25th to be the birth date of Sayyidunā ‘Isā ‘alayhi as-salām. However, this is the winter time and dates are not ripe at that time in Palestine.
25. Sayyidunā ‘Isā ‘alayhi as-salām spoke in the cradle and told the people that he is a Messenger of Allāh.[17] The people were in shock and bewilderment and had no idea how to respond.
26. The King of Abyssinia, Najāshi, had verified the verses of Sūrah Maryam when he heard them from Sayyidunā Ja’far Ibn Abī Ṭālib raḍiyallāhu ‘anhu, when the Muslims migrated to his land. He had also embraced Islām. Before this, he was a Christian. The case of Najāshi becoming emotional and embracing the truth of Islām is clear proof that true and genuine Christians recognize the truth and understand the correct position of honor and respect that Islām accords to Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā and Sayyidunā ‘Isā ‘alayhi as-salām.
27. The Noble Qur’ān has immortalized the honor and great rank of Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā. It teaches us many lessons that we can implement in our lives. We realise and understand that one must be true to Allāh Ta’ālā, as the mother of Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā was. Thus, every person must turn to a life of modesty, purity and chastity, as was the case with Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā. This is probably because (and Allāh Ta’ālā knows best) towards the end of time, immorality will increase to inhuman levels. Her remaining pure is a lesson for us all. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā teaches us patience and obedience to Allāh Ta’ālā, without questioning and objecting. The task given to her was tremendous and she fulfilled it in the best way. Moreover, she dealt with accusations against her within her time, and it is only the foolish who perpetuate slander against her.
28. Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā and her blessed mother teach us to ask for pious offspring, to desire that our children be dedicated to the worship of Allāh Ta’ālā and the service of religion.
29. The blessed son of Sayyidah Maryam raḍiyallāhu ‘anhā was sent as a Messenger to the Banī Isrā’īl and he brought glad tidings of the coming of the final Messenger, Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam.[18]
30. Muslims are obligated to accept and believe in the Messenger, Sayyidunā ‘Isā ‘alayhi as-salām. If we do not accept him as a Messenger and servant of Allāh Ta’ālā, our faith is incomplete and we cannot be regarded as Muslims. Muslims believe in all the Messengers of Allāh Ta’ālā, respect and revere them all.[19]

HARAAM QUR’AN COMPETITIONS

Q. An organization called, The South African National Quraan Council, is organizing a Quran ‘memorization competition’. Are such competitions permissible?
A. The Qur’aan competition is a shaitaani function. It is haraam to participate in this mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed. This type of haraam mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed is among the Signs of Qiyaamah. The Qur’aan Majeed states:
“Verily this nation of mine took the Qur’aan as an object for buffeting.”
This will be the complaint of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) on the Day of Qiyaamah.
Competitions of this nature make the Qur’aan Majeed into a toy for stupid and haraam entertainment. The Objective of the Qur’aan Majeed is the guidance of mankind. It is a capital crime to use and misuse the Qur’aan Majeed for merrymaking and stupid competitions.
Shaitaan has urinated the idea of Qur’aan competitions into the brains of the organizers of this haraam mockery. Since Muslims all over the world are making a mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed in various shaitaani ways, Allah Ta’ala, in order to punish us, causes defilement of the Qur’aan Majeed at the hands of kuffaar. Since Muslims themselves defile and desanctify the Qur’aan Majeed, in different ways – one way being these satanic competitions – Allah Ta’ala permits the kuffaar to defile the Qur’aan Majeed in various ways, e.g. burning the Qur’aan Majeed.
While defilement of the Qur’aan Majeed and of the Musaajid by kuffaar has no effect for Allah Ta’ala, it is a form of punishment for Muslims who are grieved by such defilement. During its history, Allah Ta’ala had handed Musjidul Aqsa to the kuffaar for defilement and pollution to punish Muslims. The same is happening today. Musjidul Aqsa has been handed to the Yahood for defilement, and the Kuffaar are allowed to burn and defile the Qur’aan.
All of this is merely a reflection of the villainy, treachery, fisq and fujoor of Muslims. The kuffaar are not blameworthy. Muslims are the vile and treacherous criminals who are the cause of such defilement at the hands of the kuffaar. Qur’aan competitions are one form of Qur’aanic defilement.
It is haram to participate in any way whatsoever in the stupid ‘memorization’ competition of this miscreant body called SANQC.

SALAAT COMPETITIONS

Question: What is the view of the Shariah with regarding monetary incentives to draw people in particular the youth towards the Masjid? A competition was recently held in one town whereby children/youth of up to a certain age were to register with an organisation and thereafter attend a particular salaah with jamaat in a few masaajid that were part of this competition.
The attendance was to be done for a certain number of days after which successful candidates were to get awarded. To maintain “integrity”, roll calls were also done for that particular salaah.
I cannot come to terms with this initiative. I feel it to be in direct contradiction to the ways and methodologies set down by the Shariah. Further, there exists a serious concern as to whether those participating in this competition are performing salaah for the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala (which should be the object of our life) or to gain the insignificant material incentives being given by this organisation.
Please advise what is the stance of the Shariah regarding this type of competition.

Answer: All these competitions and prizes doled out ostensibly to draw people to the Musjid are a mockery of the Deen and inspirations of Iblees. It is a method of riya, takabbur and pure nafsaaniyat. This mockery of Ibaadat is akin to kufr. There is absolutely no Ikhlaas in such ‘ibaadat’. In some places in America to lure people, especially their youth drifting into atheism and barbarism, to the empty churches, they served hot dogs and coke as holy communion. These haraam ‘ibaadat’ competitions are worse than the hotdog-coke scheme of the Christian priests.
It is not permissible to participate in these haraam competitions which make a joke and mockery of Salaat which the Qur’aan describes as the “Greatest Thikr”. The exceptionally low and degraded level of spiritual degeneration in which Muslims are wallowing can be adequately understood from this mockery of Salaat organized by Munaafiq rascals. Whereas ibaadat is a sombre exercise of meditating on Allah Ta’ala, these rascals have transformed it into a merrymaking stunt for winning stupid, haraam prizes. Their hallucinated objective for the shaitaani completion is waswasah urinated into their brains by Iblees.
The slightest contamination in niyyat corrupts the ibaadat which is rejected by Allah Ta’ala. Prizes for ibaadat? It is indeed shocking and unimaginable. But we are in the era which is in close proximity to Qiyaamah, hence the fitnah of the dunya is incremental by the day. The Hadith instructs us to constantly make dua for protection from the ‘fitnah of the dunya and the athaab of the qabr’. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“The life of this world is but play and amusement while the abode of the Aakhirat is best for those who have Taqwa (who fear Allah Ta’ala). What! Have you no intelligence?”

Today even ibaadat has been transformed into play and amusement based on Riya (show and ostentation). Those rubbishes who have devised this satanic scheme of  ‘ibaadat’ competitions are in reality bereft of Imaan.
In a dream a man saw a Buzrug. On asking of the Buzrug’s condition in Barzakh, he  replied:

“A meticulous reckoning of my a’maal (deeds) was taken. I was rewarded for the death of my cat because I had grieved. But, was not rewarded when my donkey had died because I was annoyed and a curse slipped from my mouth. A silk thread in my topi of which I was not even aware was recorded as an evil deed in my account.
The ibaadat which made me happy when people saw me engaging in it was not recorded among my good deeds.” In other words, such ibaadat was nullified by the feeling of happiness which was tantamount to riya.
On hearing this, a Wali commented: “He is most fortunate for not being punished for such ibaadat.” Now form your own conclusion regarding these shaitaani schemes of ‘ibaadat competitions’.

QURAN MEMORISATION COMPETITION

KUFR ‘QURAN MEMORISATION COMPETITION’

A KUFR MOCKERY OF THE QUR’AAN MAJEED

QUESTION

An organization called, The South African National Quraan Council, is organizing a Quran ‘memorization competition’. Are such competitions permissible?

ANSWER

“…We have sent to you the Rasool from amongst you to recite to you Our Aayaat (of the Qur’aan), and to purify you, and to teach you the Kitaab (the Qur’aan) and Hikmah (the Sunnah), and to teach you what you knew not.”

(Baqarah, Aayat 151)

The Maqsood (the divinely ordained objective) of the Qur’aan Majeed is to provide, Ta’leem and Tazkiyah (teachings of the Shariah and purification of the nafs). There is absolutely no other purpose. The attainment of this Maqsood is by means of ta’leem, tilaawat and tazkiyah.

This divinely ordained Objective cannot be achieved by means of the Satanism of ‘competitions’. The Qur’aan Majeed is a Hidaayat for those who employ it in the manner shown to us by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah. Tilaawat of the Qur’aan Majeed is an Ibaadat of the highest merit while these competitions related to it are evil inspirations of Iblees described in the Qur’aan Majeed as ‘zukhrufuk qawl’- satanically adorned words and ideas whispered into the brains of miscreants by shaitaan.

The Qur’aan competition is a shaitaani, deceptive gimmick. These haraam shaitaani competitions eliminate the reverence, dignity and holiness of the Qur’aan Majeed from the hearts of the morons who participate in these acts of Satanism. It is haraam to participate in this mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed. This type of haraam mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed is among the Signs of Qiyaamah. The Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Verily this nation of mine took the Qur’aan as an object for buffeting.”

This will be the complaint of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) on the Day of Qiyaamah. Competitions of this nature make the Qur’aan Majeed into a toy for stupid and haraam entertainment. The Objective of the Qur’aan Majeed is the guidance of mankind. It is a capital crime to use and misuse the Qur’aan Majeed for merrymaking and stupid competitions where haraam prizes akin to gambling, will be doled out. Such mockeries of the Qur’aan Majeed are among the Signs of Qiyaamah.

Shaitaan has urinated the idea of Qur’aan competitions into the brains of the organizers of this haraam mockery. Since Muslims all over the world are making a mockery of the Qur’aan Majeed in various shaitaani ways, Allah Ta’ala, in order to punish us, causes defilement of the Qur’aan Majeed at the hands of kuffaar. Since Muslims themselves defile and desanctify the Qur’aan Majeed, in different ways – one way being these satanic competitions – Allah Ta’ala permits the kuffaar to defile the Qur’aan Majeed in various ways, e.g. burning the Qur’aan Majeed.

While defilement of the Qur’aan Majeed and of the Musaajid by kuffaar has no effect for Allah Ta’ala, it is a form of punishment for Muslims who are grieved by such defilement. During its history, Allah Ta’ala had handed Musjidul Aqsa six times to the kuffaar for defilement and pollution to punish Muslims. The same is happening today. Musjidul Aqsa has been handed to the Yahood for defilement, and the Kuffaar are allowed by Allah Azza Wa Jal to burn and defile the Qur’aan.

All of this is merely a reflection of the villainy, treachery, fisq and fujoor of Muslims. The kuffaar are not blameworthy. Muslims are the vile and treacherous criminals who are the cause of such defilement at the hands of the kuffaar. Qur’aan competitions are one form of Qur’aanic defilement.

It is haraam to participate in any way whatever in the stupid ‘memorization’ competition of this miscreant body called SANQC. The Opening verse of Surah Baqarah states:

“This Kitaab (the Qur’aan), there is no doubt in it, is a guide for the Muttaqeen.”

Hidaayat is the Maqsood (Objective) for the revelation of the Qur’aan. It is pure shaitaaniyat and treachery to use the Qur’aan Majeed as a toy and football for merrymaking and enjoyment at the behest of shaitaan and the nafs.

The so-called ‘al-falaah college’ where the Qur’aan Majeed will be subjected to shaitaani mockery is a college of Iblees. The Deen is manipulated for achieving corrupt nafsaani objectives.

IT IS HARAAM TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS MOCKERY IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER.

THE CELLPHONE CURSE IN THE MUSAAJID

THE CELLPHONE CURSE IN THE MUSAAJID

COMMENTS AND NASEEHAT OF A BROTHER

I have noticed 2 things openly prevalent in our local Musjids recently –

  1. Alhamdolilah, there is no shortage of printed Qurans in the Musjids, yet
    some musallis are putting their cellphones on silent, and using their cellphones inside the Musjid to read Quran. And messages, calls can come through when this same phone is on silent. In addition, there is a very high probability that animate pictography, icons and other peoples messaging profile pictures (commonly animate pictures) are downloaded and stored on these phones. Furthermore, impermissible pictures or profile photos can appear automatically on the screen in these devices inside the Musjid (for example, when a new message is received).

I (a layman)was surprised, observing an Imam reading a Jumuah khutbah in the Musjid from his own smartphone…now how does someone tell the person sitting next to him to switch his phone off, when this is the example set by the Imam himself…

  1. Instead of being switched off, some cellphones are put on silent and being openly used for instant messaging (generally have a high content of animate pictures) by both adults and teenagers in our local musaajid immediately before and after fardh salah. This texting has become so common and ‘brazen’, that it appears that answering cellphone calls will become the next norm in the Musjids.

Most people do not even understand the effect of harmful radiation these devices emit or receive at close proximity to the human body, let alone subjecting the person sitting next to them and the Musjid to it. In my simple opinion, there could also be great spiritual harm associated with this type of radiation.

While reading the Quran on a cellphone could be permissible outside of the Musjid, it sets a precedent of being able to use the cellphone for other purposes inside the Musjid simply by others observing some musallis reading Quran on it.

Most of the local Musjids already have ‘switch off or no cell phone’ signage, but this doesnt seem to work because people are still using their cellphones ignorantly.

Perhaps, what used to be done back in the day, needs to be re-introduced. And, that was the regular reminder by our older Imams who would announce before each salah to switch off all phones completely (and not on silent).

If you feel it is appropriate to address this on your website or other communication, then please feel free to edit and post as you need, for the sanctity of our Musjids, and for our communities benefit. (The Musjid could curse such people for introducing animate pictures into the Musjid and for partaking in futile instant messaging conversations in the Musjid).

JazakAllah khairan (End of the brother’s comments)

Our Comments

(1) It is not permissible to load the Qur’aan Majeed on cellphones in which haraam matter is stored, e.g. pictures, etc.

(2) It is not permissible to recite the Qur’aan Majeed from a cellphone in which haraam and rubbish are stored.

(3) It is improper and unbefitting of a Mu’min to recite the Qur’aan Majeed from a cellphone in the Musjid when copies of the Mushaf are available.

RUINING CHILDREN’S IMAAN AND OTHER CHILDREN RELATED ISSUES FROM THE MAJLIS

Q. A government school in our town has arranged an educational trip to visit various places including several historical sites. They include certain temples with ancient statues which are venerated by Buddhists as well. Some Muslim parents are planning to send their children too, though the school has not made it compulsory. The parents say it’s part of education and will create understanding between communities. Is it right for Muslim parents to send their children to visit these temples with idols?
A. This shaitaani understanding will create destruction of the Imaan of these children who are being exposed to shirk indoctrination. Firstly, attending the government/secular school is haraam. Visiting the kuffaar temples is a greater haraam act. It is darkness compounded with darkness. Parents are paving the path for the ruin of the Imaan of their children by allowing them to be exposed to kufr and shirk.
Instead of abhorrence for idolatry, the visit and the commentary of the teachers will dilute the villainy of the shirk. In fact it will imbue congeniality for kufr and shirk in the minds of the children. The rijs (filth) of idols will become subconsciously acceptable to the children. The Qur’aan refers to idols with the designation of RIJS (FILTH).
It is not permissible to visit even such places which Allah Ta’ala had destroyed with His Athaab, e.g. the Dead Sea region where the nation of Nabi Loot (Alayhis salaam) was wiped out by Allah’s Punishment. Such places are perpetually under the La’nat (Curse) of Allah Ta’ala. Hindu temples and all temples of shirk and kufr are worse than the areas destroyed by the Punishment of Allah Ta’ala. The Curse of Allah Ta’ala perpetually descends on places of idol-worship. Those who visit these abodes of shirk and kufr will be destructively affected by the La’nat and Ghadhab of Allah Azza Wa Jal.
Parents and teachers are opening the avenue of shirk and kufr for the children with such haraam visiting. This type of education is satanism (shaitaaniyat) and haraam.

Q. Recently I heard that if a child has clothes, toys etc. and we hand it over to someone else then we need to reimburse the child. Is this true? I didn’t think of this before. How do we reimburse? What sort of value do we give to used items?
Another question I had is what about when we encourage children to give to others or to charity and they chose to give their items like this. Is it okay? 
A. If there is any real value for the items, then pay that amount. If there is no real value, then give an amount you think is reasonable. It is always advisable not to make the children the owners of the clothes, etc. The parents should remain the owners. Then there will be no problem when the parent instructs the child to give an item to charity. However, if the child has already been made the owner, and if the item is still in the child’s use, it will not be permissible to give it away or to tell the child to give it away. If it is given away, it has to be replaced with a similar or a better item.

Q. When writing school exams, is it permissible for the Muslim child to answer with kufr, e.g. Darwin’s theory’ and the ‘big bang’ theory? The origin of the universe and mankind are based on these kufr theories. What should Muslim school children do?
A. It is firstly haraam to attend these secular kuffaar schools. Both Imaan and Akhlaaq are ruined in the immoral kuffaar school environment. It is kufr for the students to repeat the kufr in their writings even if they do not believe in it. If a baaligh child writes such kufr, he/she loses his/her Imaan. Their parents will join them in Jahannam for their kufr since these evil parents have chosen Jahannam for their children by casting them into the cauldron of kufr and immorality.

Q. I am a female physician. Is it permissible for me to attend to an 18 year old boy?
A. If a Muslim male physician is not available, then the boy should be referred to a non-Muslim male. If a suitable non-Muslim male physician is not available, then a Muslim female physician may attend to him observing Hijaab to the best of her ability.

Q. Is it permissible for a Maulana to teach Hifz to a boy who shaves his beard?
A. It is not permissible for a Maulana to teach Hifz to a boy who shaves his beard or who openly violates any law of the Shariah.

NAAQATULLAH -THE CAMEL OF ALLAH

(An extract from our forthcoming book, The Ambiyaa of Allah)
“There has come to you from your Rabb a Clear Proof. This is the Camel of Allah. It is for you a clear sign, therefore leave to graze in the land of Allah, and do not touch her with evil (harm), for then Allah will apprehend you with a Painful Punishment.”
(Surah Al-A’raaf).

…Hadhrat Nabi Saalih (Alayhis salaam) then supplicated to Allah Ta’ala and the small group of Muslims said ‘Aameen’. Simultaneously, a loud sound was heard from the mountain, and out emerged an extremely beautiful she-camel. She was munching fresh grass. No one had ever seen such a beautiful camel. Moments after her emergence she gave birth to a baby camel. By the command of Allah, immediately a fountain of water and a pasture land came into existence. The camel began grazing in this green land.
The Thamud consisted of seven tribes. Despite all of them acquiring water from this fountain, the quantity remained the same. However, when the camel went to the fountain, she drank up all the water. Allah Ta’ala revealed to Saalih (Alayhis salaam) to inform his people to milk the camel. All seven tribes obtained milk from the camel. They filled their containers with milk. There was no shortage of milk. On the command of Allah Ta’ala, Nabi Saalih (Alayhis salaam) explained to his people that one day per week has been set aside for only the camel to drink water from the well. The people should obtain water on the other days. The day the camel drank will be the day that they were allowed to milk her.
The camel roamed about freely. Wherever she went to graze or drink water, all other animals would flee. Hadhrat Saalih (Alayhis salaam) warned them from harming this camel in any way whatsoever. She was the Camel of Allah. Should she be harmed, the severe punishment of Allah would settle on them. The people honoured their pledge although the vast majority did not accept Imaan. They derived considerable benefit from the camel’s milk. The milk was in such abundance which enabled them to make butter and to sell the milk products. In fact they derived considerable wealth from the milk of this camel.
Four hundred years passed in this peaceful state. One day, ten noblemen from his people approached him. Nabi Saalih (Alayhis salaam) informed them that a boy who will be born to them during this month will be the cause for the destruction of the nation. Coincidentally, the wives of these ten noblemen were pregnant. All ten gave birth to boys. Nine women killed their infant boys, but one woman did not. She named the child Qadaar. He grew up a young, strong man. The nine women now regretted their action of killing their babies. They blamed Hadhrat Saalih (Alayhis salaam), saying that he is a liar having misinformed them. Thus, they reneged from their Imaan. Their attitude towards the camel changed.
One day, Qadaar and eight others from the other tribes, after consuming wine schemed to kill the camel. They plotted to kill the camel when she came to the fountain to drink water. When the camel lowered her head to drink water, Qadaar struck her with an arrow. The camel attacked, and they all fled. One person from the group approached from behind and struck the legs of the camel with a sword. When the camel fell, the accursed others returned and killed her.
When the young camel saw her mother’s condition, she fled. The evil group pursued her. However, she entered into the mountain from the rock from whence her mother had emerged, and disappeared. …
