Allaamah Abdul Wahhaab Sha’raani (Rahmatullah alayh) who was among the greatest Fuqaha, Muhadditheen and Auliya of the 10th Islamic century, says in his Kitaab, Lawaaqihul Anwaaril Qudsiyya:
“A universal pledge emanating from Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has been taken from us that we should follow up the Saum of Ramadhaan with six days of fasting in the month of Shawwaal, in order to purify us from the sin of impurities which are the effects of negligence on the Day of Eid, in the wake of gluttonous feasting from which the nafs was restrained by fasting during the month of Ramadhaan.
Frequently the nafs advances recklessly with lustful eating on the Day of Eid. In consequence (of this gluttony) develop such ghaflat (obliviousness) and hijaab (spiritual deprivation) which is worse than the total lusts which are restrained as a result of the month-long abstention during Ramadhaan. (So deadly is the effect of the gluttony and fulfilment of lust on the Day of Eid).
Therefore these Six fasts of Shawwaal are an expiation for the deficiencies in our fasting of Ramadhaan. They are like the Sunnat Salaat which accompanies the Fardh Salaat or like Sajdah Sahw (which rectifies the Salaat).
For this reason, my Master, Hadhrat Ali Khawwaas (Rahmatullah alayh) said: ‘During the Six Fasts, it is necessary to be as diligent as in Ramadhaan. In fact, greater diligence should be observed during these Six Fasts because they are Jawaabir (i.e. compensate for the deficiencies; they eliminate the defects and rectify the Fasts of Ramadhaan which were executed defectively).’
If the Jawaabir are also executed deficiently, then the objective is not attained.” According to some Ulama, it is preferable to fast the Six Days consecutively. Fasting the Six Days altogether cultivates greater glitter in the heart.
It is narrated in Muslim, Abu Daawood, Tirmizi, Nisaa’, Ibn Maajaha, etc. that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Whoever fasts Ramadhaan and follows it with six days of Shawwaal, is like one who has fasted the whole year.”
This discourse adequately rebuffs the deviate Salafis who decry the Six Fasts of Shawwaal.
Posted on Fri 21 April 2023 POLLUTING THE MUSJID WITH MOCK I’TIKAAF AND MERRYMAKING
Among the Signs of the Proximity of Qiyaamah as mentioned in the Hadith is that “the dunya will be pursued with acts of the Deen.” So-called men of the deen will recklessly utilize Deeni acts of ibaadat to promote their nafsaani and worldly agendas.
A Brother, commenting on the shenanigans of the so-called khaanqah (KMSZ) in Lenasia, writes:
I would like to know if the practices of Khanqah KMSZ of Lenasia are according to shariat.
During the entire month of Ramadhaan the masjid is disrespected! When entering the masjid there is a strong smell of cigarettes smoke coming from the toilets.
Bedding is placed haphazardly with no tents sometimes interfering with the saffs in salaat. There is general untidiness all over the masjid. Most of the time the masjid smells like food.
After Asr salaat, sometimes the zikr program (over the loudspeaker) begins while late comers are still performing salaat.
Immediately after Margrib salaat a moulana starts his short talk (over the loudspeaker) on virtues on Awwabeen and reading surah Sajdah and Tabarak etc… causing a distraction to those performing salaat.
During the entire month Qunoot e Naazila is recited in Fajr.
On the 27th night a long program takes place but the next morning Fajr is shortened to surah Falaq and Naas (the Qunoot is longer).
Are all these practices sunnat? Jazakallah (End of letter)
Every sincere Muslim who is not connected with this misguided ‘khaanqah’ gang of bid’atis, can readily understand the evil of the haraam, bid’ah shenanigans which these deviates practice and advertise as ‘ibaadat’. Every new-fangled practice camouflaged with an ‘ibaadat’ facade on the list of these practices is bid’ah and haraam. There is absolutely no origin and no basis in the Sunnah for these bid’ah fabrications and infractions of the Shariah.
As far as their filth, gluttony, smoking foul stenches, etc. are concerned, these are glaringly HARAAM acts which expel all the Malaaikah from the Musjid.
These miscreant ‘khaanqah’ fellows have surpassed the Barelwi Qabar Pujaari sect in the commission of bid’ah. They are bereft of any shame. They pollute the Musjid with their gluttony and smoking. The satanic stench of smoking defiles and desanctifies the holy environment of the Musjid. The Malaaikah do not tolerate the foul, rotten, stinking odours which these misguided morons excrete into the Musjid with their vile shenanigans. It is haraam to enter the Musjid with a mouth emitting the foul vapour of even garlic. What conclusion should be drawn from the evil stenches which pollute the Musjid – the stenches caused by the gluttony, smoking, etc. of these miserable, bogus khaanqah creeps who satanically devour carrion in the Musjid?
Their thikr programmes are all bogus, designed to mislead and deceive. During the era of the Sahaabah, Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu anhu) had expelled from the Musjid a small group of persons who were making thikr in halqah form. They did not pollute the Musjid. They did not defile the sanctity of the Musjid as these bogus khaanqah miscreants are doing. They were only making thikr of Laailaha Il-lallaah, yet branding them bid’atis, he had them ignominiously expelled from the Musjid in view of their method of thikr being innovated in conflict with the Sunnah. How would the Sahaabah have reacted if they had to witness the filth, stench, gluttony, uncleanliness and all the bid’ah of these bogus khaanqah miscreants who are securely trapped in the tentacles of Iblees?
With shameless acquittal, the miserable sheikh of this bogus khaanqah states on his 27th night programme, among numerous acts of bid’ah and villainy:
“Refreshments buffet style provided by Sheikh -40 min. 10:10 pm – 10:50 pm.”
“Refreshments 15 min. 12:45 am – 1:00 am”
Indeed his brains are vermiculated with shaitaaniyat and nafsaaniyat, hence he miserably fails to understand the villainy and satanism of his pantomime performances in the guise of ‘ibaadat’. Just imagine! ‘Buffet style’ gluttony after midnight on such an auspicious Night of Ramadhaan? Indeed, we are witnessing the fulfilment of the prediction of our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) who said that a time will dawn when Muslims will follow the kuffaar right into “lizard’s hole”. This kuffaar ‘buffet style’ refreshment satanism is one such example of following the kuffaar into the ‘lizard’s hole’.
It is from the heights of his shaitaani hubris that this mudhil bogus ‘sheikh’ is mismanipulating Ramadhaan and Ibaadat for gaining the objectives of his evil nafs. In the process he philanders with Iblees. He needs to expurgate his brains and heart with sincere Taubah and abandonment of his shaitaani bogus khaanqah. It is this type of ‘khaanqah’ which requires demolition.
This bogus sheikh is on the same path of deviation and shaitaaniyat which a Mombasa shaitaani bogus sheikh had been trotting. After his exposure he has fled or gone into hiding. The bogus sheikh of this Lenasia bogus khaanqah should beware! He is dabbling with Fire!
Then after this haraam, shaitaani gluttony during the precious time of this auspicious Night when Allah Azza Wa Jal is calling on His servants from the First Sama’, these rubbish, bogus ‘mureeds’ of a bogus ‘sheikh’ manning a bogus ‘khaanqah’, indulge in a further round of gluttony which they dub ‘Sehri” which is another hour of haraam gluttony and defilement of the Musjid.
It boggles the mind to grasp how is it possible for intelligent Muslims to allow themselves to become so satanically trapped by a bogus ‘sheikh’ operating his bogus ‘khaanqah’ in total oblivion of Allah Ta’ala, Maut, the Qabar and Aakhirat. All the thikr performances designed by this bid’ati, bogus ‘sheikh’ are vile acts of BID’AH inspired by Shaitaan to deviate people from the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Indeed this bogus ‘sheikh’ has surpassed even the Barelwis by leaps and bounds in the perpetration of bid’ah.
A molvi, Muhammad Ibn Adam Al-Kawthari who is a fan of Mufti Taqi Usmani, praising the system of iftaar at Mufti Taqi’s madrasah says:
“Great system here in Dar al-Ulum Karachi for iftar. A siren goes off to indicate iftar. People open their fast are given approximately 25 minutes to eat calmly, after which they perform Maghrib in a calm and composed manner. Such delay for Maghrib in Ramadhan is permitted.”
Please comment on this long delay. Is this in accordance with the Sunnah?
It is in accordance with the religion of the Shiahs. This molvi fellow must be having a soft spot in his corrupt heart for the Shiahs, hence he disgorges the stupid twaddle of such inordinate delay being permissible in Ramadhaan. From whence did he dig out this Shiah practice of such unacceptable delay?
The practice of Iftaar MUST be in accord with the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The following Masnoon method of Iftaar is stated in the Ahaadith:
“The people (i.e. Mu’mineen, not Shiahs) will always remain on khair (goodness/prosperity) as long as they make haste with iftaar.”
“Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) loved making iftaar with three dates or with something which was not prepared by fire (i.e. uncooked. Thus samoosas, pies, bajiahs and the like are in conflict with the Sunnah of Iftaar).”
“Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: ‘Whoever finds a date should make iftaar with it, and who has no dates, should make iftaar with water.”
In a Hadith-e-Qudsi, Allah Azza Wa Jal, Himself says:
“The most beloved to Me of My servants, are those who are the quickest in making iftaar.”
They make Iftaar as soon as the sun has set, and engage in Iftaar in the frugal Sunnah way, then hasten to perform Maghrib Salaat. They do not adopt the way of the Shiahs.
These Ahaadith and the permanent Practice of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah, explain the Sunnah. What the molvi miscreant has praised is pure gluttony – haraam gluttony which is a salient feature of the kuffaar and of pigs.
It is NEVER permissible to delay Maghrib for half an hour. By this time even the stars begin twinkling, and this is the favourite time for Shiahs to make iftaar and indulge in their gluttony.
Those at the Darul Uloom Karachi who indulge in gluttony for almost a half an hour are in flagrant violation of the Sunnah. Their ‘calm eating’ is kuffaar style gluttony. The kuffaar, according to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) devour food with ‘seven intestines’ while Muslims eat with ‘one intestine’.
We are in the era in close proximity to Qiyaamah, hence we have such miserable molvis who have high regard for kuffaar ways, and shower accolades on the ways and styles of kuffaar and of even Shiahs who insult and vilify the Sahaabah.
These miserable people misled by the miscreant molvis, first indulge in gluttony at the time of Iftaar. Then after Maghrib they go home and indulge in a second round of gluttony. Then these loathsome gluttons again indulge in gluttony after Taraaweeh. They come within the purview of the Hadith:
“For many a faster (saa-im) there is nothing in his fast but hunger.”
Due to the widespread promotion and encouragement of women performing i’tikaf in the masjid, we find it prudent to respond and shut this door of fitnah insha Allah.
Contrary to popular belief, Muslims are expected to lead, and by default, leadership requires foresight. Such foresight is easily obtained by maintaining the suhbat (company) of the pious seniors. It is vile and extreme for juniors not to seek such foresight from their seniors as much as it is for seniors to shut access to these doors.
Furthermore, the idea of encouraging females to attend the masjid for i’tikaf, especially in such an area infested with lesbians is vile, to say the least.
Muslims should not lose sight of the pervertedness that exists in our society, be they online (social media)or not. Schools are sexually orientating our children by design into these acts of pervertedness. From gender-free toilets to teaching explicit sexual content, promoting homosexuality, encouraging young boys to dress as girls, and vice versa. Encouraging children with sex changes (transgender benders).
In light of this, do we encourage our mothers and grandmothers who are holding the fort (house/home) and guarding the boundaries of Islam by keeping i’tikaf in their homes!
Doing so would also afford you the opportunity to serve your household which carries a far greater reward than making i’tikaf, if you intend to seek the pleasure and reward of Allah.
Muslim communities are plagued with single-parent dysfunctional homes. Despite the brave attempt of surviving parents to manage a family on their own, the reality is this job was designed for two. The bulk of the remaining society then suffers from dysfunctional parenting, something psychologists refer to as ghost parents. Where both parents exist but they fail as parents as most of their time is spent working, failing miserably at being a mother or father.
Instead of converting the house of Allah into an incubator for lesbianism. Remain resolute in your homes, guarding the boundaries of Islam.
Consider the following 1) Islamic jurists by consensus agree that a permissible act can and at times should be prohibited for the reformation people.
2) Jurists have prohibited women from kiss greeting and shaking hands in times of such fitnah, as lesbianism rampantly spreads.
3) The Prophet (Salallah Alayhi wa salam) has attributed and, by a greater extent, encouraged women to make Salalah at home and not at the masjid. What motive should a woman have but to seek what is greater in reward and do what is more virtuous in the sight of Allah.
4) The mother of the believers Sayidina Ayesha (Radiallahu unha) said if the Prophet (Salallah alayhi was salaam) was alive and saw what transpired he would have prevented women from attending the masjid.
5) Allah says to the believing women: “وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ الْأُولَى” “And remain, in your homes; and do not come out, like the coming out of the first Jaahiliyah (Period of Ignorance)
There are more points to help mitigate the need for women to perform i’tikaf in their homes, however, we find these points sufficient for those with intellect and sincerity.
Furthermore, Ulama in general should remain alert to the scourge lesbianism presents, demolishing homes etc.
Ulama who are imams to masaajid (houses of Allah) are tested the most in this regard. As they are pressured by committee’s. And the feel the need to lobby the support of females to retain “power” or their position in the masjid. These are the tactics presented to you as Ulama by lucifer (Shaytaan).
Let your focus be Allah, Heirs of the Prophets.
May Allah protect us all, keep us with Ihlsaas, Istiqamat and Aafiyah.
Please comment on the ‘Sunnah I’tikaaf Application Form’ of Al Hilal Musjid in Durban. Is there a basis in the Shariah for such an application form? Are the questions asked valid?
In fact, these application forms are a scandalous mockery of Ibaadat. The application form is in emulation of kuffaar-style application forms. It is loaded with nonsensical questions. It is not permissible for the trustees of the Musjid to probe the personal lives and pry into their private affairs. They are guilty of Tajassus (spying) which is Haraam according to the Qur’aan Majeed. They should also have Taraaweeh and Fardh Salaat application forms! What has induced the trustees to advertise their Jahaalat?
I’tikaaf is a Sunnah act of Ibaadat which existed in the time of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The rules pertaining to I’tikaaf are elaborately explained in the Kutub of Islam. Nowhere is there the slightest justification for the stupid, nonsensical, scandalous kuffaar style application form which conveys the idea of the trustees of the Musjid being the owners of I’tikaaf and of the Musjid. They have assumed the haraam liability of deciding who should sit in I’tikaaf. They have no such right.
It is the inherent Shar’i right of every Muslim to resort to the Sunnah I’tikaaf. The right of the trustees is to only ensure that there are no violations of the Shariah. Stupid forms are not required for this duty. They have absolutely no right to pry into the personal lives of those who intend to sit in I’tikaaf. Our advice for these trustees is to de-modernize the I’tikaaf scenario. They should not worry about their elaborate kitchen fitted with fridges and microwaves, etc. They should terminate the picnic, merry- making kitchen service.
Every Mu’takif should make his own food arrangements. His food should come in simple style from outside – from his home and relatives. The Musjid is not the venue for gluttony which today prevails in all Musaajid where the Masnoon I’tikaaf is performed in mock manner. There is no true I’tikaaf – true in the spirit of the Sunnah – taking place. I’tikaaf has become a merry-making party and a picnic.
If the detestable kitchen arrangement is not made, then only the sincere ones who understand what I’tikaaf entails will engage in this Ibaadat.
The application form is nonsensical and not permissible. Only morons will apply via the stupid forms to sit in I’tikaaf. Indeed those who have prepared these ludicrous forms are most stupid to say the least.
A haraam, shaitaani programme polluting the Holy Month of Ramdhaan, organized by some shaitaani deviates acting under influence of Iblees, luring ignorant Muslims into fisq and fujoor, states:
“Join us this weekend for inspiring lectures about the lives of two extraordinary Sahaba…… Closing Qiraat by Hafiz Salim Banjo… Program will start after Taraweeh at Palm Sands, Windermere Road. Supper will be served and entertainment for the Youth, Fifa Competition.”
No Muslim whose intelligence has not been corrupted by divinely cast Rijs (Filth), will fail to see the pure satanasim (shaitaaniyat) and nafsaaniyat in this haraam programme organizied by Munaafiqeen. The nifaaq of the miserable, moron, jaahil ‘qaari’ mentioned in the shaitaani programme has been confirmed more than fourteen centuries ago by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) who said:
“Most of the munaafiqeen of my Ummah are the qaaris.”
The reference is to these jaahil qaaris whose copro-brains are heavily sedated by Iblees. Shaitaan urinates in the ears of his puppets and agents. Munaafiq ‘qaaris’ of the ilk of the moron mentioned in the program are among the agents of Iblees. Shaitaan uses them to misguide stupid youngsters and other ignorant Muslims who lack proper know-how even in the Sunnah method of Istinja.
In this glorious, Mubaarak Month of Ramadhaan when Allah Azza Wa Jal descends every night to the First Sama’ at Maghrib and maintains His Special Manifestation (Tajalli) for our benefit until the dawn of Fajr, these most unfortunate miserable, moron Muslims trapped by the agents of Iblees squandered the precious time in gluttony and haraam ‘fifa’ entertainment.
Even during other months, it is not permissible to wile away time, sit in conversation and entertainment after Isha’ Salaat. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has prohibited such satanism, especially at night after Isha’. Allah Ta’ala has created the night for only two purposes: Sleep and Ibaadat. But these juhala encouraged by the likes of the moron qaari and jaahil ‘shaykh’, utilized the precious and mubaarak Night of Ramadhaan for activities which will lead them to Jahannam.
The Copro-Rubbish, Munaafiq ‘qaari’ and miserable, Jaahil ‘shaykh’ who were the extraordinary fools to entertain the juhala participants in the haraam, shaitaani ‘fifa’ entertainment, are prime signs of Qiyaamah. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) mentioning the Signs of Qiyaamah, said:
“The dunya will be searched for with the amal of the Aakhirat.”
Muslims are required to apply the intelligence which Allah Ta’ala had bestowed to them to understand what the Deen is and to pursue the Objective of Ridha-e-Ilaahi (The Pleasure of Allah). Qiraa’t of the Qur’aan Majeed is an act of the Aakhirah. The Qur’aan is recited for only one purpose, viz., the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala and Thawaab in the Aakhirah. But these Copro-Rubbishes who are among the Hasabu Jahannam (Fuel of Hell-Fire), under deeni guise and camouflage lure morons to participate in the satanism of ‘fifa’ entertainment during a Mubaarak Night of Ramadhaan.
Just imagine the degree of satanic defilement of their brains! They planned their ‘fifa’ shaitaaniyat to take place after Taraaweeh. The rubbish ‘qaari’ and ‘shaykh’ who discharge Taraaweeh most defectively, hastened to their shaitaani fifa entertainment after Taraaweeh when it was Waajib to go to sleep or remain awake in Ibaadat. These gluttons devour food and even haraam food like pigs. At the time of Iftaar, they stuff their bellies with a variety of foods. Then after Maghrib, they indulge in gluttony, kuffaar style. Then again after Taraaweeh they indulge in copro-gluttony like swines or worse. They have absolutely no shame. Their Imaan is dead! Dead! Dead! Only those with dead Imaan can have the shaitaani temerity to so blatantly pollute the Nights of Ramadhaan with fifa entertainment after Taraaweeh.
These Copro-Rubbishes have brought themselves fully within the glare of the La’nat and Ghadhab of Allah Wa Jal. Allah Ta’ala has not created the Mubaarak Nights or even the nights of other months for shaitaani fifa-style entertainment or for entertainment of any kind whatsoever. Just imagine: “Serving supper and entertainment for the youth – Fifa competition.”!!!!!!!!
Have any Muslim in the more than fourteen century history of Islam ever practised or even heard of entertainment after Taraaweeh? Yes, they have introduced bid’ah by their innovated styles of Qiyaamul Lail. But this practice is pure Salaat. It is has absolutely no relationship with copro-shaitaani entertainment as was organized by the Copro-Rubbish Munaafiq crank ‘qaari’ and the Jaahil, Copro ‘crank, quack ‘shaykh’. Even the Qiyaamul Lail bid’ah, despite consisting of only Nafl Salaat, is not permissible. It is Bid’ah. What must we say of the shaitaani fifa entertainment and swine-like gluttony organized by the agents of Iblees after Taraaweeh? They are lost, following in the footsteps of Shaitaan.
The whole of the Muslim public is not blind. Many people are appalled at the shenanigans which the bid’ati bogus ‘shaikhs’ are perpetrating in the garb of ‘I’tikaaf’. While the Barelwi Qabar Pujaari bid’atis perpetrate their moulood bid’ah in the guise of ‘Hubb-e-Rasool’ (Love for the Rasool), the new brand of pseudo-deobandi bid’atis indulge in their new-found camping and merrymaking bid’ah in the name of ‘I’tikaaf’ when in reality there is not even a semblance of Masnoon I’tikaaf in their practices of riya, takabbur and israaf.
A Concerned Brother from Stanger who observed the show, writes:
“Please give me the Shariah stance on the following issue:
In the Stanger Masjid this year, an overseas shaikh (Kamaludden) was invited to spend I’tikaaf for the last 10 days. Almost 300 individuals sat for I’tikaaf (majority from out of town). The following were the salient features of this I’tikaaf function:
Q. Huge expenses were incurred to feed the large crowd for Sehri, Iftaar and supper. Is this ok in the Shariah when men, women and children in Syria, Palestine, Burma etc. are starving and even dying of hunger? I don’t know the cost but one can estimate the cost of Sehri and then Iftaar/supper for 300 men over 10 days. My understanding is that regardless of who paid for the food, is it not an unnecessary expense given the condition of the Ummah? If I am wrong please do correct me.
A. The ‘huge expenses’ are pure Satanism (shaitaaniyat), for Allah Azza Wa Jal says in the Qur’aan Majeed: “And do not waste, for verily, the wasters are the brothers of the shayaateen (devils).” Wasters being the ‘brothers of the devils’ are bereft of compassion, hence the plight of the suffering Muslims of Syria, Palestine, Burma and other places – the suffering Muslims who languish in appalling straits of misery, hunger, poverty and gross jahaalat bordering on kufr – is a non-issue for them. Their fossilized hearts lack the capacity for even understanding the pain and misery of the suffering Ummah, and their arid and barren eyewells are incapable of shedding a tear. We thus see these ‘brothers of the shayaateen’ utilizing the auspicious Month of Ramadhaan’ and the Ibaadat of I’tikaaf for making merry, for eating and only excreting. In the aftermath of all this khuraafaat organized by the ‘buzrugs’ and ‘hadhrats’ who bamboozle the ignorant masses with a display of some shathiyaat (some abracadabra ‘tawajjuh’ stunts) is the mass of the excreted mess of the foods of waste which for many culminated in diarrhoea.
These fake ‘shaikhs’ should hang their heads in shame for utilizing and mismanipulating the Deen for nafsaani gratification and for attaining the objectives of their worldly pursuits. Brother, you are not wrong. Be grateful to Allah Ta’ala for the ability to have understood the villainy, moral and spiritual destruction which these imposter ‘shaikhs’ commit in the name of the Deen. Everyone is, Alhamdulillah, not susceptible to deception.
Q.The large crowd obviously meant that noise levels in the masjid would skyrocket. At salaah times the noise in the wudhu area was like a circus. If you read your Sunnah salaah close to the wudhu area you could not even hear what you are reading. Talking would go on even while Iqaamah was being recited. I am not saying the Masjid is silent out of Ramadaan, but aren’t we looking for trouble when we host such a large crowd? Then certain individuals would loudly exclaim “Shoo”, “Shoo” and even speak out loudly and ask those talking to remain silent. This just made an even bigger noise. Announcements were made. Elderly members of the Stanger community were frequently inconvenienced by the huge influx of visitors. Wudhu places were reserved for those in I’tikaaf and numerous announcements were made after Salaah to give priority to the visitors. Those reading on chairs faced great difficulty as they could only read Salaah at the back of the Masjid due to the mureeds of the shaikh rushing for place near the mimbar. Many of those in i’tikaaf were seen smoking e-cigarettes in the masjid area after iftaar. Is this Ramadaan? Is this respect for Ramadaan? Is this the meaning of I’tikaaf?
A. Allah Ta’ala has ordained that the Musaajid be places of Ibaadat, not venues of merrymaking, camping and picnicking. Defilement of the sanctity of the Musaajid, disturbing the peace of the Musallis, preventing the usual Musallis from performing their acts of Ibaadat with serenity, etc. are major sins. Undoubtedly, the atmosphere created in the Musaajid by the deviate ‘shaikhs’ with their crowds of ignorant followers, transform the Musjid into a circus. The trustees of the Musjid are partners in the vile sins which are perpetrated by the ignoramus followers on the instructions and on the strength of these misguiding characters who have set themselves up as spiritual guides. They lack in even the understanding of the rudiments of Tasawwuf.
Cigarette-smoking in the Musjid is indeed mind boggling. Shaitaaniyat has assumed the form of ‘ibaadat’. Never in the history of Islam were the Musaajid so thoroughly defiled and polluted as is being perpetrated presently by the new brand of bid’ati peers who slanderously proclaim allegiance to the School of Deoband when in reality they haven’t even smelt of the fragrance of the Tariqah of the Akaabir of Deoband. Every step of these impostors is in conflict with the Sunnah. They know not what Ramadhaan is. They do not have the faintest idea of the meaning of I’tikaaf. They are capitalizing on the Sunnah concept of I’tikaaf to achieve their satanic objectives.
Q. Is it Sunnah to print posters and invite people from far and wide to come to a place for I’tikaaf? A few hours of bayaans were delivered every day. Is that the point of Ramadaan or is individual ibaadat the aim? The masjid speakers in the back section were always on. So you could not read Qur’aan or make Zikr or read nafl namaaz while the bayaans were going on. Is this Sunnah?
A. Inviting people from far and wide – from different countries to undertake journeys for I’tikaaf, is not only to be discouraged. It is a haram act to be condemned. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) prohibited undertaking journeys to visit even Musaajid except three Musjids – Musjidul Haraam, Musjidun Nabawi and Musjidul Aqsa.
It is shaitaaniyat to invite and encourage people to undertake journeys to perform a private act of ibaadat such as I’tikaaf which the vast majority of Sahaabah never performed. In fact, Imaam Maalik (rahmatullah alayh) said: “I pondered in (the matter of) I’tikaaf and the abstention of the Sahaabah from it despite the fact that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had always observed it.”
Do these crank ‘shaikhs’ understand the importance and significance of I’tikaaf better than the Sahaabah thus encouraging Muslims to indulge in a variety of sins which are concomitant to journeys nowadays in order to observe I’tikaaf in another country? We have explained the body and soul of I’tikaaf in our booklet, MASS I’TIKAAF.
Q.Those intending i’tikaaf were asked to register online. Then there was an ‘orientation’ meeting in the masjid after zuhr on the day i’tikaaf commenced. Laptops, files etc. were being shuffled around. A survey form was handed out before Eid. Part of the masjid cubicles were announced to be the i’tikaaf admin block. I’tikaaf rules were printed out which you had to agree to abide by. Is this complicated, formal way the way of the Ulama of Deoband? Is this the Sunnah way of observing I’tikaaf? Did Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah observe I’tikaaf in this manner?
A. The registration and office activity paraphernalia which have been added to the mock ‘I’tikaaf’ pantomime show are haraam rubbish. There is not the slightest relationship between all this rubbish and I’tikaaf which is an act of individual ibaadat to be observed in solitude, seclusion and silence.
Q. Is it a Sunnah practice to make congregational dua over the speakers before Iftaar? This happened daily in the Masjid?
A. It is Bid’ah Sayyiah (an evil innovation). There is no basis in the Sunnah for this new innovation fabricated by the imposter ‘shaikh’.
A Sister poses the following questions:
“Below is some information which has reliably reached me regarding Maulana Zulfiqar and some of his mureeds. I am greatly disturbed by these things. Despite people speaking greatly of this shaikh, I find it difficult to ignore some of his actions.
Q. Female mureeds are allowed in the presence of the shaikh. They don niqaab in front of him while he addresses them and casts tawajjuh on them. Please comment.
A. The error, deviation and sin of this deviate ‘shaikh’ are conspicuous. Only those blinded by ignorance and false emotions will fail to understand the evil of these perpetrations of this miscreant ‘shaikh’ who comes fully within the scope of the Hadith: “Verily, I fear for my Ummah the aimmah who are mudhilleen (those who mislead).”
The appearance of females in the presence of the ‘shaikh’ of ignominy even with niqaab, is haraam. He is a ghair mahram. It is haraam for women to sit in the company of a male regardless of the niqaab. Being a shaikh is not a licence for haraam. A shaikh is not exempted from observing the laws of the Shariah which applied to even Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
The ‘tawajjuh’ stunts of this character are designed to entrap the ignorant and the unwary. Even if a man transforms stones into gold, flies in the air and walks on water, he will be an imposter and a fake if he is not a strict follower of the Sunnah and a staunch observer of the Shariah. The only criterion by which to ascertain and judge the credentials of a person is the Shariah. Sadhus, yogis and Christian faith-healers also demonstrate these tawajjuh stunts. People should not be awed by such conjuring performances of imposter spiritual guides.
Popularity and number of mureeds are common factors with even shaitaan who enjoys greater popularity and whose ‘mureeds’ are by the billion. It is Waajib to scale the actions and statements of the ‘shaikh’ on the Scale of the Shariah. This man is guilty of ruining the morals of the females who are mentally enslaved to his misguidance. With his stunts he corrupts the Imaan of Muslims.
Just on the basis of this one act of moral turpitude of this deviated so-called ‘shaikh’ is he persona non grata. It is not permissible toadopt him as a spiritual guide.
Q. His mureeds who are aalims and aalimahs conduct ‘aalim’ courses online for all and sundry. They study in the comfort of their homes. In this way anyone can qualify as an aalim. Is this not a dangerous way of imparting specialized Deeni Knowledge at the academic level? Is it possible to become a qualified Aalim in this manner?
A. It is not possible to become a Sanadi Aalim online. While one may learn some rudimentary masaa-il pertaining to the basics of the Deen, one can never become a qualified Aalim studying in this dumb manner. Mr. Zulfiqar and Mr. Kamaluddeen who conduct this type of online programs are liberals and modernists. They are very far from the Sunnah. They suffer from an inferiority complex which makes them the worshippers of the West. They are overawed by western culture, hence they take pride in their western college donkey degrees which they flaunt to awe other ignoramuses of their ilk.
Q. Mufti Kamaludden, a senior khalifah of Shaikh Zulfiqar, has been frequenting South Adfrica. This Mufti and his wife conduct lecture programmes at various universities. Is this not encouraging Muslims to attend universities where the environment is immoral and haraam without any doubt? They have programmes for males and females. Why do they have their programmes in places where Allah’s Wrath and Curse descend?
A. They have their programmes at haraam venues because they are mudhilleen– misguides who lead Muslims astray. They pave the path of Jahannam for Muslims. Therefore, they place the stamp of approval on haraam, immoral, satanic universities.South Africa has becoming a haven for deceits and moral dacoits. They love South Africa because of two outstanding features of Muslims in this country: Abundance of wealth, and a glut of stupidity. It is quite a simple matter to overwhelm people of stupidity by a display of some abracadabra stunts to fleece them of their money. These quack peers and misguides are ruining the Imaan of the masses and destroying their moral character.
AN EX-MUREED WRITES
An ex-mureed of ‘shaikh’ Zulfiqar writes from Saudi Arabia:
Assalamualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,
“A few years ago Peer Zulfiqar did his daughter’s wedding in Dubai where hundreds of khulafa and mureeds from all over the world gathered. They did shopping in expensive malls. Dubai mureeds were imposed duties of khidmat. The wedding reception was held in the most expensive hotel in Dubai.
A person went from Riyadh for I’tekaf in Zambia. Ticket was 5300 riyals (approximately R16,000 rands). The shaikh paid food expenses in Zambia. Daily 3 bayans plus muraqabah. (The organizer of the circus was a wealthy soft drink manufacturer who footed the bill – The Majlis)
If on average one person spent 5000 riyals on ticket and there were 700 people including women, that means 3500000 riyals 4 million rands), which is 9.5 crore pkr. – 95 million Pakistani rupees just on tickets.
(This does not include the wasteful expenditure for the huge tent to house 400 people, the food expenses, etc. – The Majlis)
In Pakistan there are suffering poor people, widows, orphans etc. Average support for one home per month is 5000 rupees (R1000). A friend in Karachi does this (act of charity). So with this wasted money, they could’ve provided 19000 families with basic necessities like wheat, daals, etc. for the whole month of Ramadhan. Or they could’ve supported 1600 families for the whole year. Or 160 families for 10 years. (But the Satanism in them goaded them to waste this colossal sum of money on eating and excreting – The Majlis)
This is excluding the food expenses and local travelling charges.
The problem is that the molvis and rulers are the same today. They have abundance of funds at their disposal. They live in luxuries, they don’t care about people. (They are absolutely corrupt – rotten to the core – The Majlis)
If peer Zulfiqar used this money to open maktabs in rural areas of Pakistan, he could have set up hundreds of maktabs with 10 years of salaries safely kept… (With all the money which was squandered down toilet and sewerage drains during the Zambia fete, 20,000 children totally deprived of the very elementary teachings of the Deen to sustain Imaan, could have been provided Maktab Ta’leem. The Maktab course is two years. The funds wasted in the haraam festival in Zambia were sufficient to save the Imaan of thousands of village children from the depredations of anti-Islam forces such as missionaries and the kufr influences of western modernism. – The Majlis)
But who cares??? (They will care the day that Malakul Maut tugs at their souls. The agonies of Maut will make them to care, but it will be too late.- The Majlis)
Only the rich can afford to go visit the shaykh at ‘itekafs’ (mock, farcical functions dubbed ‘I’tikaaf – The Majlis) and weddings and yearly umrahs. So these shaykhs have plenty of fat cows from which they can milk from, and use for their own ends. (This is the primary objective for organizing all these haram festivals in the name of the Deen – The Majlis)
The khulafa and mureeds seem to go every year to spend time in the ‘blessed’ suhbat for ‘spiritual uplift’ but it seems like it is just an excuse to go on a kuffaar-style holiday.
Forget the millions of brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering, a token donation every now and then which is like loose change for them is enough to soothe the conscience (and dupe the ignorant mureeds trapped in their tentacles – The Majlis).
If they don’t want to support families instead they could’ve started maktabs. One ustadh would cost 5000 rupees per month. Usually madrasahs in Karachi pay way less than that. I’ve seen the pay scale 2000 to 8000 Pakistani rupees.
If they pay an ustad 5000 rupees per month in rural areas it means they could’ve easily set aside salaries for 1600 ustads for the whole year! Next year more can be donated by the rich cows. Imagine 1600 ustads getting secure jobs and how much work of deen could’ve been done (educating thousands of Muslim children thereby saving their Imaan – The Majlis)
But they’d rather spend millions on show and gratification of their nafs than care about people in rural areas of Pakistan who don’t know even the Kalima. These shaikhs have a lot of time for rich businessmen and “islamic bankers” but no time for poor people. (This is quite logical. It is these personnel who are the men with the boodle – The Majlis)
You will never see this shaikh or his mureeds shooing away any rich business man or banker even if they survive on haram, but you’ll see them every day ignoring and kicking away poor people who come only for guidance.”
• When Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam performed Tarawīh Salāh with the Sahābah Radhiyallāhu anhum, Umar Radhiyallāhu anhu was present.
• After personally witnessing the Tarawīh of Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam, Umar Radhiyallāhu anhu established 20 Raka’āt of Tarawīh in the Masjid in the presence of MANY very senior Sahābah Radhiyallāhu anhum without any objection on their part.
• Rasūlullah Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam said “Adhere to my Sunnah and the Sunnah (practice) of the Rightly Guided Khulafā. Hold on to it with your molars”. (i.e. hold firmly onto it).
• Umar Radhiyallāhu anhu is one of the rightly guided Khulafā.
• The Ahādīth of 8 Raka’āt refer specifically to the amount of Raka’āt that Rasūlullah Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam would perform for Tahajjud Salāh. The Sahābah, including Sayyidah Aaisha Radhiyallāhu anha, did not consider 20 Raka’āt of Tarawīh as conflicting with the 8 Raka’āt Tahajjud in any way.
• The performance of 20 Raka’āt of Tarawīh Salah is an undisputed point of consensus in the Ummah from the time of the Sahābah Radhiyallāhu anhum.
• 20 Raka’āt is the correct, established amount of Tarawīh without any difference of opinion amongst the Sahābah Radhiyallāhu anhum.
1. It is Sunnah to break the fast with dates. This was the practice of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah. It is unhealthy to break the Saum (Fast) with other kinds of food and to eat much at the time of Iftaar.
2. Maghrib Salaat should commence one or two minutes after the Athaan. There is therefore ample time to fulfil the Sunnah requirement of Iftaar. Begin Iftaar during the course of the Athaan. The time of Iftaar is not an occasion for feasting.
3. Eating at the time of Sehri ends with the advent of Subh Saadiq which is when Fajr time begins. It is preferable to stop eating a couple of minutes before the „Fast Begins‟ time given on some timetables.
4. Eating beyond the „Fast Begins‟ time invalidates the fast. Some people continue eating whilst the Fajr Athaan is in progress. The fast is invalid.
5. If by error a Fast is invalidated, then too it is not permissible to eat. Remain as a fasting person, and make Qadha of the invalid fast after Ramadhaan.
6. Whilst nonsensical, futile and abundant conversation does not invalidate the physical Fast, it utterly ruins the spiritual Fast. The spiritual benefits of the Fast are ruined by indulgence in futility, and the position is worse if the talk is gheebat (gossip and back-biting). Gheebat also makes the Fast physically difficult.
7. After Ramadhaan, i.e. during the month of Shawwaal, it is Sunnat to keep six Nafl Fasts. These may be kept all together or spread out over the month.
8. The reward of one good deed practised in Ramadhaan equals 70 such deeds practised in other months. By the same token, the evil of sin committed during Ramadhaan is also multiplied manifold.
9. Tilaawat of the Qur‟aan Shareef is of special importance and significance during Ramadhaan. Many khatams (complete recitations) of the Qur‟aan Majeed should be observed.
10. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has applied additional emphasis on abstaining from arguments during the month of Ramadhaan. If someone initiates an argument, maintain silence. In such silence is success.
THE EVIL OF TELEVISION At least during Ramadhaan, have mercy on your own soul by abstaining from the evil of television and the evil of the cellphone. The entire spiritual effect, benefit and reward of the wonderful Days of Ramadhaan are gushed down the satanic drain by viewing television and the evils on the cellphone.
While this Glorious Month of Ramadhaan is supposed to be a month of Frugality and Austerity, the lifestyle of Muslims during this Holy Month is the inverse. Instead of gaining closeness to Allah Ta’ala with the sacred practice of Hunger ordained for us by Allah Ta’ala during this Month, Muslims are ruining their Souls with kuffaar-style gluttony. Understand well that gluttony is specific with human beings. Animals are never gluttonous, perhaps pigs are. Animals eat to satiation whereas gluttonous people over-eat and in this satanic process ruin their Souls and destroy their health.
The ‘iftaar’ feasting of Muslims is absolutely scandalous and filthy. In numerous places they soil the Musaajid with the mess and stenches they leave after elaborate feasting in shaitaani / kuffaar style. Savouries have become more ‘waajib’ in Ramadhaan than even the Taraaweeh. Instead of frugality, gluttony has become the norm.
Another exceptionally evil custom is feeding Haleem at the Musaajid during this Holy Month. This custom is haraam for two reasons:
It displaces the Sunnah practice of Iftaar with only dates/water. It has become a bid’ah.
The evil is aggravated by serving HARAAM food. The chickens and meat used are CARRION which scoundrels have halaalized.
How can your ibaadat be accepted when you devour Haraam, especially in Ramadhaan?
The arguments proffered for providing haleem are stupidly spurious. Whoever fools himself with the idea of ‘thawaab’ for doling out haleem at the Musaajid, should be concerned with genuine thawaab by arranging for the haleem to be delivered to poor homes. In fact, there is no need to be insistent on haleem. This is another bid’ah forged for the Month of Ramadhaan. Give the equivalent in cash or groceries to deserving Muslims, silently and ostensibly without the stupid, haraam show which accompanies this bid’ah.
Furthermore, Muslims should have mercy on themselves by abstaining from halaalized CARRION chickens and meat. All your savouries are HARAAM. Your Rooh is putrefied and your health is ruined with the deluge of jeefah (carrion) you consume. Only those who intentionally smother their Imaani conscience to gratify their inordinate greed, will have the temerity to refute the proven fact that all chickens and meat commercially killed at kuffaar killing plants certified by the Cartel of Shaitaan are Haraam. No Muslim of decent intelligence can deny the irrefutable evidence which proves that 99% of the butcheries deal with CARRION.
Ramadhaan is the Month for spiritual training and upliftment. Take maximum advantage of the barkaat and benefits of this Month by means of more Ibaadat. But more and valid Ibaadat is possible only on the basis of Halaal-Tayyib food, and that too not ingested gluttonously.
