By A Brother from U.K.

‘They have taken their rabbis and their monks-as well as the Maseeh, son of Mary-for their lords beside Allah, although they had been bidden to worship none but the One Allah, save whom there is no deity: the One who is utterly remote, in His limitless glory, from anything to which they may ascribe a share in His divinity!’ (Glorious Qur’an, 9:31)

Today we are witnessing the total transformation of our Masaajid and Madaris into Theatres/Stages for the final appearance of Dajjal. Neither our Masaajid nor our Madaris any longer appear to have a spiritual link to the Office of Nabuwwat and the Maslak of our Salf-e-Saalihoon (pious predecessors).

Copies of the Glorious Quran have been removed, by Muslims themselves, from shelves and placed in storage – out of bounds. No atheist government official nor any law enforcement officer entered our Masaajid to even suggest let alone remove them. A conglomerate of Munaafiq Councils and treacherous Maulvis/Muftis masquerading as senior scholars and shuyook issued disgraceful bootlicking guidelines, verdicts, posters and categorised even the wearing of Shaytaan’s niqab as Waajib. Like supine and spineless morons, other Imam’s, Maulvis, trustees, committees and Muslim medical personnel latched onto these guidelines like vultures and scared witless, implemented them without question.

O Muslims! Not a single person is observed reciting the Glorious Qur’an in our Masaajid now – it has been snatched away from our hands whilst there are thousands of Huffaz and Maulvis in our midst.

If this rate of degeneration continues, how long before it is snatched away from our hearts?

In reality, it already has for the overwhelming majority of Huffaz who remain are now Ramadhaani Hafiz – they can only swat up the few Rukus they are due to recite in Taraweeh – and with calls for lockdown to continue until next Ramadhaan, the damage to this unique institution of Hifz will be dramatic as calls are heard to reduce Taraweeh from 20 Rakaats to 8.

This was the first time in history of Haram Shareef and Masjid An Nabawee where only 8 Rakaats of Taraweeh were recited. Elsewhere in Arabia, the Wahaabi/Salafi had managed to reduce it to 8 Rakaats – but even they had not dared to instigate such measures in Haramain Sharifain until today.

The headlong plunge of taking the Madrasah atmosphere away from the Cave of Hira and onto online platforms has already seen traditional Madrasah Talabah Numbers and attendance dramatically reduced.

Enter the ubiquitous ‘Koran Club;’ where hybrid Munaafiq Maulvis, Apas and Muslim Teachers treat the Glorious Quran, with connivance of Muslim Parents as another subject in the curriculum to be taught as an act of convenience so everybody is free by 5pm. What atheist education officials had tried for centuries to achieve, namely cut the Muslim child off from the Glorious Quran and Maktab, Muslims themselves have enacted with their own hands.

Some jerk has already rendered Juz Amma into a comic version and it has circulated within Ulama Forums without a murmur. Offer some naseehah to any of these celebrity shaykhs and their lackeys will raise a furore – but not a word from any Maulvi when the Glorious Quran is either withdrawn, shelved or reduced to a comic. Now online lessons are replacing the age-old Maktab system. Websites are springing up offering diplomas and certificates, all for a fee. Pictures of Celebrity Shaykhs and Female Tutors appear (sometime superimposed together) on glossy posters and flyers, approving all these businesses, programs, seminars, workshops, etc, etc.

As Masjid donations and Madrsah fees continue to drop, Maulvis have come up with promoting Maulviwood (televised programs) to welcome the ‘return’ of Makshoofaat into our Masajid.

The rulings and fatwas of Ameerul Mumineen t and Umm ul Mumineen t prohibiting Masjid attendance for Ladies are brushed away by liberal Maulvis themselves. They will not hesitate to use gender-equality, LGBT and a host of other atheist government laws to hoist upon the Masaajid their ploys. To attract ladies and remove all barriers, it was necessary for these Celebrity Shaykhs to first enter Muslim homes via the media of YouTube, Netflix, Facebook and WhatsApp.

Under guise of promoting Islamic Values, History, Heroes, Heroin’s and the ubiquitous call for Islaah, Turkish Drama’s and Tours to Balkans were widely promoted within Muslim Circles (at a national and international level) by this new breed of Maulvis, Muftis and Shuyookh.

Such Celebrity Shaykha will embark on an all-expense paid tour with a film crew (Khuddam) in attendance – to photograph, video-record and write up these grand tours, revival of the Ottoman Empire and ‘Halal Holidays’ in Balkans, Bodrum, Antalya, Marmaris, Masjid Aqsa, etc., etc.

Surreptitiously, Muslim minds are being conditioned to accept the appearance of firstly, Makshoofaat and thereafter Dajjal in these bizarre temples. The majority of men, especially the Huffaz, Maulvis and Tableegh Jamaat brethren have for one nafsaani reason or another – stopped attending Masaajid – the void will now be filled by Makhshoofaat. Anarchy will reign – as this gender fights its way incrementally onto Masaajid and Madrasah Committees with their promise of donations, jewellery, gifts and picnic hampers.

In desperation, mercenary Maulvis, Imams, Crank Sufis and Vainglorious Trustees will accept all their demands – quoting fictitious government rules, regulations and guidelines. Token separate entrances and screened areas will be designated as a precursor to full intermingling and the appearance of Dajjal.

First, we witnessed the appearance of gawdy TFT Monitors on Masaajid Walls, apparently to display Salaah Times and Sunnah Du’a. Now, these very screens are being used to promote collection and appeal for so-called worthy causes. Already Qira’at, Naat, Nazm, Islaahi Programs and Tours of Celebrity Shaykhs are being broadcasted. Thereafter so-called Islamic Drama Programs will follow.

The Masjid will open a few minutes before a sham performance of Fardh Salaah – despite many congregating outside before and after, nobody will be able to stand together in Jamaat, or perform Tahayatul Masjid or Wudhu herein. Immediately thereafter the handful of Musallees who attended will make way for the exit and the Masjid is locked. Before our Masaajid were scented with perfume – now these temples are sprayed with alcoholic desanitizers. Even the humble Madrasah bench (patla) is wiped umpteen times and despoiled with chemicals before a child may place his kutub thereupon. Priests will argue over the percentage content, source of alcohol and permissibility thereof and the fiqh ruling of Covid 19 measures – but the reality is every single act of defilement possible has already been enacted.

The reason why Allah Ta’ala has highlighted in the Glorious Quran the treachery of the Banu Isra’eel Ulama is to warn the Maulvis of this Ummah not to follow in their footsteps; not to commit the same blunders of compromising and diluting Deeni Ahqams; not to bootlick the wealthy and affluent for pecuniary gain. If Maulvis continue to do so, the same fate which affected the Banu Israeel awaits us…

‘And do not overlay the Haqq with falsehood, and do not knowingly suppress the Haqq…’ (Glorious Qur’an, 2:42)

11 Safar 1442 – 29 September 2020


Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Laughing in the Musjid will be zulmat (darkness) in the grave.”
“Conversation in the Musjid devours good deeds just as cattle devour grass.”
Numerous among the Ulama and the Tabligh Jamaat are lamentably oblivious of the prohibition of conversing and laughing inside the Musjid. At times their talk is so loud as to be a befitting sign of Qiyaamah.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that among the signs of Qiyaamah is that “voices will become loud in the Musaajid.”
The worst culprits in this misdeed are the so called people of piety –
molvis and tableeghis.
Even whilst the Athaan is being proclaimed, they continue private discussions right inside the Musjid.

Laughter and worldly talk are sacrilegious inside the Musjid.
When even reciting the Qur’aan Majeed loudly in the Musjid is not permissible when musallis are present, how can indulgence in worldly conversation and laughter ever be permissible? The total indifference in this regard renders these misdeeds kabeerah (major sins).

Will The Real Aya Sofia Please Stand Up?

They say history is the biography of great men and women. Well, history is also the story of great buildings. This case is rarely more painfully obvious than when it comes to identity of The Hagia Sophia or Aya Sofia (“the Holy Wisdom”).

Church, Mosque, Museum: the Aya Sofia has lived under many guises over the years and each transformation came hand-in-hand with momentous political change. This year, it was no different.

By reverting to the previous designation of Aya Sofia into a mosque, the Turkish courts have set off a firestorm of controversy across the world. It is understandable that faithful Christians would object. The sense of loss they must feel is the same feeling that many Muslims get when they see the Grand Mosque of Cordoba’s conversion into a cathedral. However, what is confusing is that some Muslims are also conflicted – or even downright hostile – to the idea of the Aya Sofia being used as a mosque.

Why are they upset? Is there weight to their feeling that this was an act that was against the laws and spirit of Islam? How true is it that this was pure political theatre?

A summary of the arguments are detailed below as each point reveals a great deal about us as Muslims today and our current mentality:

1. “It should just remain a museum…”
The Aya Sofia IS remaining a museum. The ruling states and the government echoes that it is a mosque and museum but, unfortunately, if you read the headlines you will be given the impression that the museum is being destroyed. This is not the case.

The world is full of buildings with dual functions. The White House is the seat of government and the residence of the President. The Vatican is a museum, a church and the home of the Pope. St Paul’s Cathedral is a tourist attraction as well as functioning church. If Muslims alone were somehow exempt from the ability to combine museum and mosque in one building, then that would be very strange indeed. Yet that is exactly what opponents of the mosque designation are saying.

What opponents for the reversion of the building are arguing for is not for the preservation of the museum – in fact, it will be more accessible than ever by becoming free and open till the late evening – but for the prevention of worship in a building that was built and intended for that very purpose.

2. “It was illegal to turn it into a mosque in the first place…”
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing: many Muslims quote the example of Umar (R) and his treatment of the Church of The Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. In fact, this is the number one excuse used by many so-called Muslim intellectuals who lazily have projected their own biases on to our pious predecessors. They say, not without a little pious sanctimony, that Umar (R) exemplified that Islam is not a triumphalist religion and – though he could have converted the church into a mosque – he chose not to.

For most of history, it was common practice that any conquering army gained full ownership of the conquered lands. Islamic law was actually quite progressive in this regard, stipulating that property in surrendered lands would remain with their owners and not the conquerors. It was only if a land was taken without surrender, according to Imam Al Qurtubi amongst others, should their properties be forfeit. Jerusalem surrendered and Damascus surrendered. Constantinople – despite multiple attempts requesting it to do so – did not. Therefore, Islamically and according to the norms of the time, the conversion of the Church into a mosque was legal.

This is highlighted by the case of a district of Constantinople called Psamatya (present day Koca Mustafa Pasha) whose residents surrendered to Muhammad Fatih separately. The area had the highest density of extant churches, since none were touched or taken over.

3. “But it has been a museum for so long now, so why turn it back?”

Some sources say that they have found evidence of the Church being purchased by Muhammad Fatih with his own money. The evidence has yet to be verified by external sources although it is accepted by the Turkish authorities, but even if you withhold it, the established status of the entire complex as a Waqf (Islamic endowment) is definitive. Waqfs cannot be unilaterally taken over or converted to another use.

The reality is that the conversion of the Aya Sofia from mosque to museum was a highly contentious decision taken in a manner that went against the then legal, moral and spiritual standards. It was a state sanctioned action to satisfy a political objective of the hyper-secular post-war Government. This was an injustice and it is not a good look to say that an injustice should be allowed to continue because it has been there for over eight decades.

4. “We don’t need more mosques in Istanbul…”

Would anyone think it reasonable if their local mosque was taken over unilaterally by the Government and then, when they ask for it back, they are brushed off by officials saying, “there are lots of mosques in the city and many are half empty: we are keeping this one.” Of course not. So, if it is not good enough for you, why should it be good enough for anyone else? In fact, this was the argument used by the RSS in taking over the Barbari mosque in India.

A mosque is not a property like every other. It is owned by Allah and not something we are allowed to rationalise or barter away. Allah has no need for even one mosque, but that does not mean we should stop building them or start giving them away. To go by the utilitarian argument, then anything that is not in full use by its owner is fair game for someone else to usurp. We would never accept this for our possessions so how can we accept it for something that does not belong to us?

5. “This is all a politically motivated…”

Every decision in a public sphere is political, or can be construed to be political, in some way. Building the Aya Sofia into a magnificent cathedral was a political decision by Justinian. Turning it into a mosque upon conquest was also a political decision by Muhammad Fatih. Stopping prayers in the mosque and converting it into a museum was a political decision by Mustafa Kemal. And now, returning the building to use as a mosque and museum is also a political decision by the current Turkish state.

The question is not whether it is a political act to convert the building: it will always have a political dimension. The question is whether you like the politics of someone who was praised by the Prophet ﷺ in a hadith and turned it into a mosque (Muhammad Fatih) or someone who insulted that same Prophet ﷺ as an “immoral Arab” and turned it into a museum (Mustafa Kemal.)

Pick a side.

6. “This will hurt the feelings of non-Muslims and make us look bad.”

This is perhaps the only real argument of them all that has any weight to it. All the previous arguments are intellectual (and less than intellectual) smokescreens for the desire to not hurt the feelings of others – especially when we need all the friends we can get. This is understandable given our current geopolitical situation. This is also why you are more likely to find those Muslims living as minorities objecting to the change of status, reflecting their own precarious situations in their respective countries.

However, if looking at it objectively, we see that this argument also has limitations. Muslims are equally if not more hurt at the ethnic cleansing that took place in Andalusia. Does that mean we get the Al-Hambra or the Cordoba Mosque back? What about the Parthenon – since that used to be a mosque – conquered by the same Muhammad Fatih? What about the Kremlin, where St Basil’s Basilica was made from bricks of a Tatar mosque? And can we have the Philippines back while we are all trying to not offend each other?

Making decisions such as these on the highly subjective grounds of causing offence is not only impractical, but untenable. Many expressions of Islamic faith outside a narrow paradigm of what is palatable to specific audiences, can be seen as offensive to some. If we were to make decisions based first and foremost to protect the comfort of others, you would end up with a set of groundless rituals rather than a faith. It is the equivalent of changing your name to Bob instead of Muhammad since you were worried that even Mo was too exotic. Sometimes, the proper practice of our faith and upholding of our cultural and historical traditions will upset others not because what we are doing is deliberately offensive or wrong, but because we have different values and different standards.


What is most upsetting about the change of use for the Aya Sofia is the double standard at play. Athens has not even one mosque whilst Istanbul has hundreds of churches and synagogues: yet the Greeks are calling the Turks intolerant. The Roman Catholics plundered the Aya Sofia of all treasures and took them to St Marks church in Venice (where they still are to this day): yet it is the Pope that says that he is distressed at the Muslims – who preserved the Byzantine inheritance- for turning it into a mosque and Catholic churches calling for a day of mourning.

All the commentators calling for it to not be converted back into a mosque are also correspondingly mute regarding the Granada Cathedral built on site of a mosque, or the Barbri Mosque turned temple in India, or the Al Ahmar Mosque turned into a bar in Palestine.

But this is human nature and they will shoot their shot. Nonetheless, as Muslims, if we are against the reversion of the Aya Sofia to be a mosque again, then we really need to take a long hard look at ourselves. Just as Muhammad Fatih conquered Constantinople, we need to conquer our own ignorance, our own inferiority complex and our own insecurities.


Abdullaah ibn Amr ibn al-’Aas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reported that  Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has said that: “In the last  ages of my nation there will be men who ride on means that resemble saddles (’Mayasir’).  They will alight at the doors of the mosques.” [Narrated by Hakim in Al-Mustadrak]

‘Mayasir’ was a very costly and fine silk which the rich men used in those days to cover the saddles of their horses. This hadith means that these saddles which men will ride on at the end of times are not real saddles which are placed on the back of horses, they only resemble saddles.

Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) in all probability is referring to those vehicles which have been invented in this era, i.e., cars and bikes. Because they have comfortable, soft, and tender seats  like saddles in earlier days. And people use these cars and bikes to go to mosques.

At earlier time camels and horses were used as means of transport. No one could have imagined of mechanical vehicles e.g motorcycles, motor cars, etc

Also in earlier days, people were not used to riding camels or horses to go praying to mosques. As villages were very small, so people used to walk to mosques.

Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that people will travel on something having comfortable big seats. i.e. they won’t be riding on beasts and people would alight from them on doors of mosques.

It is a prophecy which we witness every day

when cars and bikes gather in front of the mosques…Subhanallah!

from islam reigns



“Most assuredly, We shall give them to taste of the lesserPunishment, not the Greater Punishment, for perhapsthey will return (to Siraatul Mustaqeem and the Sunnah).”(Qur’aan)
Muslims themselves, by their wanton transgression and rebellion against Allah’s Shariah, have been the cause for the the defeats the Ummah suffered at the hands of the kuffaar, and for the ultimate loss of the entire glorious Empire established by Ameerul Mu’mineen Hadhrat Umar Ibn Khattaab (Radhiyallahu anhu).
Whatever sovereignty, respect and honour Muslims had were snatched away and the Ummah has laboured and trundled the trajectory of utter defeat and humiliation for centuries. The only spectacles of dignity and little independence left were our Musaajid and Darul Ulooms where we had enjoyed much freedom and the right to worship and teach the Qur’aan and Hadith as ordained by the Shariah.
However, in recent years, added to the cesspools of inequity, fisq, fujoor, bid’ah and kufr of the Muslim community among whom the worst culprits are the molvis and sheikhs, the Musaajid and Darul Ulooms have been pillaged, plundred and desanctified by Muslims themselves. The Musaajid became transformed into halls where najis tourists, men and women, were allowed to enter and pollute. Qawwaali, bid’ah jalsahs such as so-called ‘seerat’ jalsahs, women entering the Musaajid for Salaat, mass merrymaking I’tikaaf, fussaaq qaaris, allowing zindeeqs the Musjid platform, using the Musaajid as staging platforms for kuffaar sporting teams, introducing shayaateen en masse by means of the haraam spacing, etc., etc., are all acts which defiled the Musaajid.
In addition, one of the worst acts of pillage, is the non-attendance of 90% of the community for the daily Fardh Jamaat Salaat. Another villainous misdeed of the community is to allow absolute scoundrels to be the trustees and committees of the Musaajid. The Fajr and Isha attendance is the evidence for this percentage. These are the times when generally all persons are at home.
The villainy of Muslims have made the Musaajid ornate structures devoid of Deen. About our Musaajid of these times, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “There shall soon dawn an era when nothing of Islam will remain but its name. Nothing of the Qur’aan will remain but its text. The Musaajid of the people will be ornate structures devoid of guidance. The worst of the people under the canopy of the sky will be their ulama. From them will emerge fitnah, and the fitnah will rebound on them.”
These Musaajid and the Darul Ulooms were the last remnants of our Islamic heritage. These were our little ‘empires’ where we held sway. But, Alas! Allah Azza Wa Jal has now snatched away from us these little dominions because we, with our own hands, have abused and defiled the sanctity of the Musaajid and transformed the Madaaris into mercenary and nafsaani institutions totally bereft of the Noor of Ilm. Imagine a Darul Uloom which is supposed to imbue in it the spirit and ethos of Ghaar-e-Hira, having a kuffaar sportsground.
These Musaajid, according to the Hadith, have invoked the La’nat of Allah on us, hence Allah Ta’ala has closed down the Musajid. Just imagine! You can go to the mall to acquire rubbish. But if on the way or next to the mall there is a Musjid, you are not allowed to enter and offer two raka’ts Tahyatul Musjid. This is a lamentable commentary on our own villainy.
The oppression of the government is in fact a mild form of Divine Chastisement. It is Allah Azza Wa Jal Who has empowered the government to evict us from our Musaajid. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “If entire mankind unites to benefit you in any way whatsoever, they will be able to benefit you only to the degree prescribed by Allah, and if entire manking unites to harm you, they will be able to harm you only to the degree prescribed by Allah.”

If Muslims will continue with their drunken stupor of fisq, fujoor, bid’ah and kufr, the Greater Punishment (Al-Athaabul Akbar) mentioned in the Qur’aan will overtake us. Today we have lost the Musaajid and the Madaaris. Tomorrow it can be our homes. Allah forbid! Beware! Look at Burma, Palestine and Syria, and open your brains and heart for Muraaqabah.

“Beware of such a FITNAH (Punishment) which will not be restricted to only the transgressors among you.” (Qur’aan)
The Ulama and the Buzroogs will all be swept away in its onslaught. May Allah Ta’ala have mercy on us.

2 Shawwaal 1441 – 26 May 2020


Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Amr (Radhiyallahu anhu) said:“A time will dawn when the people will gather intheir Musaajid and perform Salaat while not asingle one of them will be a Mu’min.”
The Musaajid in Germany and in many other countries have opened, and people (perhaps most of them are not Muslims) are again visiting the Musjids where a host of haraam, humiliating conditions has to be observed.
On Friday 22 May, 2020, during Jumuah, the Musjid in Berlin could accommodate only 50 persons due to the satanic ‘social distancing’ regulation. A nearby church offered to accommodate the overflow. These ostensible ‘Muslims’ went to the church where their imaam led them in ‘jumuah salaat’. The imaam overjoyed with his performance in the church infront of the cross of shirk, commented: “That is an amazing sign of solidarity in these times” said Mohamed Taha Sabry. This pandemic has made us a community. Crises bring people together”, said the mosque’s imam, who led his congregation in prayer watched over by a stained-glass window depicting the Virgin mary.
Samer Hamdoun, one of the Muslim worshippers, said the church environment took some time to get used to. “It was a strange feeling because of the musical instruments, the pictures,” said Hamdoun.”(Reuters News Agency)The shirk, kufr and haraam environment did not bother the ‘imaani’ conscience of these worshippers because they were all bereft of Imaan – the Imaan which is so vigorously emphasized hundreds of times in the Qur’aan Majeed – the Imaan for which the Sahaabah and early Muslimeen conquered the world, smashing the Roman and Persian empires.
The hallucinated ‘solidarity’ overrides Imaan for these worshippers who derived pleasure in the environment of shirk, kufr and fisq. Their imaan, if ever they had Imaan, is dead. Their worship and pleasure in the church of shirk deracinated their imaan if ever they had imaan. How can such people still profess to me Muslims when they are in entirety ignorant or repellant of the very basic and fundamental belief of Tauhid?
There is nothing – absolutely nothing that is so repugnant and so abhorrent to Allah Azza Wa Jal as shirk. A church is the abode of shirk, and about shirk the Qur’aan Majeed says: “Verily, Allah does not forgive shirk being committed with Him, and He forgives besides shirk for whomever He wills.” “Verily, the mushrikoon are najas.” “It is not permissible for the Nabi and the Mu’mineen to seek forgiveness (from Allah) for the Mushrikeen even if they are close relatives.”
The Qur’aan Majeed is replete with hundreds of Aayaat in condemnation of shirk. The doctrine of trinity, the deification of Nabi Isaa (Alayhis salaam) and Maryam (Alayhas salaam) are among the vilest beliefs of shirk condemned by Allah Ta’ala. This cannot be hidden from any Muslim who is a true Muslim. Severely rebuking the Christians, the Qur’aan majeed says:
“Verily, those who said that Allah is Maseeh, the son of Maryam have committed kufr. Maseeh said: “O Bani Israaeel! Worship Allah, my Rabb and your Rabb. Verily, whoever commits shirk with Allah, (know that) verily, Allah has made haraam for him Jannat, and his abode is the Fire. And, for the oppressors (i.e. those who believe in trinity) there will be no helpers. Verily, those who said that Allah is trinity, they have committed kufr. There is no deity but Allah The One. Maseeh, the son of Maryam is only a Messenger. Messengers have gone before him. His mother was a Siddeeqah. Both of them used to eat food……..Those from Bani Israaeel who had committed kufr (with their belief of shirk) have been cursed by the tongues of Daawood and Isaa, the son of Maryam…”(Surah Al-Maaidah)
There are numerous Verses castigating the Mushrikeen and condemning the beliefs of the Christians, but today people who profess to be Muslims find ‘solace’ in the abodes of shirk. This deracination of Imaan is the consequence of socialization and fraternization in pursuit of the shaitaani concept of ‘solidarity’. What type of shaitaani ‘solidarity’ is it which deracinates Imaan?
This kind of solidarity was rejected by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) when the mushrikeen had endeavoured to negotiate ‘peace’ with our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The Qur’aan Majeed vigorously in hundreds of Aayaat denounces and debunks a ‘solidarity’ which compromises even one iota of Tauhid.
Insha-Allah a more fuller article elaborating on this La’nat shall be published.
30 Ramadhaan 1441 – 24 May 2020

For & on behalf of Jaame Masjid Management


Similar notices are now being sent out by other masaajid in the city. Although it appears that many of the mutawallis of the various masaajid seemed reluctant to open the masaajid in the proper shariah manner, and not according to the ludicrous points above, there has been growing pressure by the musallis to open the masaajid.

This appears to be a huge mockery of the most fundamental hukm of Deen. Please advise on how we should perform our salaah given all the restrictions above?

Jazakallah (End of the Brother’s letter)


Never should Muslims submit to these humiliating, haraam terms and conditions which this Gestapo (the management committee of the Musjid) grovelling in a cesspool of kufr takes pride in imposing on Muslims.

Every condition is haraam and kufr. Also, the najaasat of the sanitizer rijs consisting of 70% alcohol renders the user impure (napaak).

In these trying satanic circumstances of the devil’s lockdown, perform Salaat at home in the proper manner prescribed by the Shariah. Let the Musaajid remain deserted to testify on the Day of Qiyaamah for the kufr and satanic infractions of these Gestapo entities who have assumed the role of the satanists. Just imagine the degree of shaitaaniyat! Policing satanically the Musaajid and controlling satanically the Musaajid as if they have inherited the Houses of Allah from their fathers.

Muslims should not contribute a cent to these evil shaitaani management committees which pillage and plunder the sanctity of the Musaajid. They furthermore have lost their Imaan. They are Munaafiqs. They reject the explicit Fatwa of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) who stated unequivocally:

“Laa adwaa” – There is no contagion. In flagrant and blasphemous denial of our Nabi’s Fatwa, this Gestapo Satanist says: “Adwaa”- Disease is contagious. Only those bereft of Imaan are capable of disgorging such blatant kufr then perfidiously    persist in professing themselves to be Muslims.

Their belief in the concept propounded by the atheists is Sareeh (Explicit) kufr. Their Imaan is eliminated. Their marriages are nullified by this kufr belief. The La’nat of Allah Ta’ala and His Malaaikah descend on scoundrels who pollute and desanctify the Musaajid with the plethora of the hideous conditions of kufr.

28 Ramadhaan 1441 – 22 May 2020





Allah Ta`ala declares in Surah Taubah, Aayat 18:
“Only those attend the Musaajid of Allah who believe in Allah and the Last
Day, who establish Salaah, who pay Zakaah and who fear Allah only. It is
they who are rightly guided”.
There has been much debacle surrounding the opening and re-opening of the
Musaajid following the oppressive lockdown. Allah Ta`ala in His Infinite Wisdom has
utilised this crisis as a criterion to distinguish between Imaan and Nifaaq. The Aayat
cited above clearly and unambiguously outlines the answer to the question every
simple Muslim has been mulling in his mind. We mention “simple Muslim” because to
every true believer, this issue is a “no-brainer”. Every true believer knows, understands
and accepts fully that Fardh Salaat with congregation in the Musjid for men is
COMPULSORY. Viruses, plagues, pandemics, etc. are not and never were an excuse to
abandon the Musaajid! There is a plethora of Saheeh Ahaadith to substantiate this
ruling. We, as well as many Ulama-e-Haqq have cited these Ahaadith in other articles.
The present ‘crisis’ which some may refer to as a ‘pandemic’ is also nothing new in the
history of mankind and Islam. We have evidence from the lives of the Sahaabah
(radhiallahu anhum) – more specifically the Khulafa-e-Raashideen – who had
experienced genuine plagues, and yet their lives as Mu`mineen continued as normal,
insofar, as their attendance in the Musjid was concerned.
The Aayat above clearly outlines the quality of people who attend the Musaajid. This
Aayat has two implications.
Firstly, it refers to the fact that disbelievers do not and are not allowed to enter and
attend our Musaajid.
Secondly, it shows that those who do not attend the Musaajid do not have Imaan in
Allah Ta`ala and also that they have no fear for Him. The present scenario superimposes perfectly on the end of the Aayat. Those ‘muslim’ men who prefer remaining in their homes – and are even challenging the True Believers in a secular court to maintain this status quo of theirs, are not merely people who have no Imaan in Allah Ta`ala, they most certainly do not fear Him. Their fear for the virus is what terrifies their emergence for Salaat to the Musaajid!
We implore all believers to ponder over this Aayat and apply it to the present scenario.
They will get the answer they seek and they will also get clarification on the status of
those who are fighting tooth and nail to keep the Musaajid closed.
To further elaborate on this Aayat, we will cite hereunder a few excerpts from some
well-known Tafseer Kutub, to demonstrate to the ‘simple’ Muslim that our plea and
that of all the other Ulama-e-Haqq, is not the view of contemporary individuals, but
they are based on authentic statements gleaned from authentic Islamic sources
“It has been reported from Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) that he said, ‘When
you see a man frequenting and attending the Musjid, then bear testimony to his
Imaan, because Allah Ta`ala said, “Only those attend the Musaajid of Allah, who
believe in Allah…’”
“This is why when Allah Ta`ala says, ‘Only those attend the Musaajid…’, HE is bearing
testimony to the Imaan of the attendees of the Musaajid.’”
“It is reported by Tirmidhi, Ibn Mardawaihi and Haakim in his Mustadrak from the
Hadith of Abdullah bin Wahab…from Anas bin Maalik, who said, Rasulullah (sallallahu
alaihi wasallam) said, ‘Indeed the attendees of the Musaajid are the friends of
“It has been narrated by Daarqutni…from Anas, marfoo`an, ‘When Allah intends a
disease upon a nation, then He looks at the people of the Musaajid (attendees of the
Musaajid), whereafter He turns it away from them.”

[The hadith above does not need any further elucidation or interpretation. Our
present circumstance speaks volumes and bears testimony to it. By keeping the
Musaajid closed, we are merely prolonging the Divine Punishment and Decree. Based
on this Hadith, the disease was released on mankind because of their pathetic
attendance and behaviour at the Houses of Allah Ta`ala. And now the Munaafiqeen
are clamouring to keep them closed…….INNA LILLAHI! This is a classic case of
compounded darkness and Divine Chastisement.]
“Saalih Muriyy, reports from Thaabit, from Anas, marfoo`an, ‘Allah Ta`ala says, ‘By
My Honour and Grandeur! Indeed when I intend a punishment upon the inhabitants
of earth, then I look at the attendees of My Houses, and at those who love each other
for Me, and at those who seek My forgiveness in the early morning, (thereafter) I
turn it (the punishment) away from them.’”
“Imaam Ahmed said, ‘Rauh reports from Saeed, from Qatadah, from`Ala bin Ziyad,
from Muaaz bin Jabal, ‘Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, ‘Indeed Shaitaan is a
wolf to man, just like the wolf is to the lone and separated sheep. Hence you should
keep aloof from the edges, and hold firmly to the group (of believers) and to the
“The Ayat, ‘Only those attend the Musaajid of Allah…’ encompasses three masaa’il:
Firstly, the statement of Allah, ‘Only those attend…’ is a proof of the testimony of the
pure Imaan of the attendees in the Musaajid, because Allah Ta`ala has linked the two
– (attendance in the Musaajid and Imaan in Him)…’”
“Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, ‘Allah Ta`ala says, ‘My Houses on earth are
the Musaajid. Indeed those who attend them are My guests. Thus, glad tidings to
that servant who purifies himself at his home, then visits Me in My House. It is the
right upon the Host that He honours His guest.’”
Among the Ahaadith cited in this Tafseer Kitaab under this Aayat is:
“Bazzar, Abu Ya`la, and Tibrani report in Al Ausat and Baihaqi from Anas bin Maalik
(radhiallahu anhu) who said that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, ‘When
disease descends from the skies, it is averted from the inhabitants of the Musaajid.’”
[In light of this Hadith, can the advocators for the closure of the Musaajid still claim
that the virus will be spread in the Musaajid??? THIS HADITH CLEARLY DENOUNCES
THEIR ROTTEN THEORY. Their kufr and opposition to the blessed words of Nabi
(sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has been exposed. Allah Ta`ala says that whatever His
Nabi speaks is wahi (Divine Inspiration). What answer will these Munaafiqeen have for
Allah Ta`ala on the Day of Qiyaamat? Incidentally this narration also appears in Faidhul
Qadeer, vol. 2, page 208, Shu`abul Imaan, vol. 4, page 379 (Imaam Baihaqi has
authenticated the Hadith), and Jamius Sagheer, Hadith 1678, page 105]
“Tibrani cites from Abu Umamah (radhiallahu anhu) who reports from Nabi (sallallahu
alaihi wasallam), that he said, ‘Going and returning from the Musaajid are (like)
Jihaad in the Path of Allah.’”
[When the cowards cannot even bear to attend the Musaajid today and earn the
reward of Jihaad, how on earth will they ever answer the call to true Jihaad if it is ever
made to them!]
It makes absolutely no sense to keep the Musaajid closed. The Ahaadith show us that
the presence of disease on earth is directly related to the attendance of believers at
the Musaajid. The Musaajid can never be deemed avenues for the spreading of the
virus as the Munaafiqeen and disbelievers stupidly claim. On the contrary, the
continuous closure of the Musaajid will most certainly perpetuate the virus and
increase the Anger and Punishment of Allah Rabbul Izzat. This is what the Hadith
teaches us!
But then, after all, the Aayat cited right at the beginning makes apparent to everyone
why the Munaafiqeen want the Musaajid to remain closed – they have no Imaan in
Allah Ta`ala and His Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), and they have no fear for Him.
They detest the Musaajid being opened because they have now found new friends
(amicus curiae) in the kuffaar! Let it be known that Allah Ta`ala is sufficient for us.
May Allah Ta`ala save us from the evils of our nafs and shaitaan.

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “When disease descends from the skies, it is averted from the inhabitants of the Musaajid.”
[Ad-Durrun Manthoor, vol. 3, page 392, Faidhul Qadeer, vol. 2, page 208, Shu`abul Imaan (Imaam Baihaqi), vol. 4, page 379, Jamius Sagheer, Hadith
1678, page 105]




According to the Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), when the Muslims in the vicinity of the Musjid do not fulfil the Haq (right) of the Musjid, the House of Allah invokes the La’nat (Curse) of Allah Azza Wa Jal on the people.

The right of the Musjid is performance of Jamaat Salaat. All over the world this sacred Right of the Musaajid is grossly and flagrantly violated. Besides Fridays, a very small percentage of the neighbourhood Muslims perform Salaat in the Musjid. This reality is best observed during Fajr and Isha’ Salaat when almost all people are at home. These two Salaat are the barometer to gauge the apathy of Muslims towards the Musaajid.

These two Salaat are the most onerous and most loathsome for the Munaafiqeen. The Ummah at large displays the signs of nifaaq at the times of Fajr and Isha’ Salaat with their absence from the Musaajid. When Muslims themselves have pillaged and ravaged the sanctity and rights of the Musaajid, there is no surprise when the oppressive governments, regimes and rulers of the world humiliate us with repressive measures closing the Musaajid.

On the Day of Qiyaamah there will be much for the Musaajid to testify when this Ummah is indicted in the Divine Court. Added to the testimony of the Musaajid, will be the Complaint of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Regarding this Complaint, the Qur’aan Majeed says that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) will lament to Allah Ta’ala:

“O my Rabb! Verily, my Ummah has made this Qur’aan a mahjoor.” (Mahjoor: an object to rebuff and batter – a football).

The consequences of the Curse of the Musaajid are what we are observing today. While we rightly clamour for the Musaajid to be opened, we need to do some serious soul-searching and repent for our vile and flagrant transgressions which are not confined to only neglect of Salaat, but to almost every facet of our lives.

It is vital to understand that the Deen is not a hobby. The teachings of the Shariah may not be discarded or unnecessarily delayed for attending to mundane activities. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that the quest for halaal rizq is subservient to Salaat. That is, first comes Salaat which is of paramount importance to sustain our Imaan. Thereafter comes our business, work, etc. Imaginary losses and disadvantages for prior attendance to Deeni affairs are superficial trials which should never deter the Mu’min from giving precedence to Deeni obligations.

An integral constituent of sincere Taubah (repentance), is the renewal of the Pledge of Obedience. All sin and futility have to be abandoned. Minus this vital constituent, Taubah is not valid. Only when the vast majority of Muslims reform, then will Allah Ta’ala transform our current state of humiliation into the type of Izzat stated by Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu). On the occasion of taking possession of the prized city of Jerusalem, Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu) said to the Sahaabah and others:

“We are a nation whom Allah has granted Izzat (honour) with Islam.”
No amount of bootlicking, plans, schemes and effort will avail as long as the Ummah does not reform and rectify its bond with Allah Ta’ala. This is possible only by submitting to the Shariah and adopting the Sunnah, and this means the Shariah and the Sunnah as understood and practiced by the Sahaabah. This is the Shariah and Sunnah which existed at the time when Allah Ta’ala announced:

“This Day have I perfected for you your Deen, and complete for you My Favour, and (on this Day) I have chosen Islam for you as Deen.”
