HAPPY ‘ISLAMIC’ NEW YEAR

 Q: Is it permissible to send messages like ‘Happy Islamic New Year’ or Muharram Mubaarak or ‘Aashura Mubaarak’ or wish people good for the Islamic New Year?

A: No, it is not permissible. Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said “He who imitates a nation, is part of them.”

It is the way of the Kuffaar to congratulate one another for the new year.

We as Muslims should abstain from Kuffaar customs.

We crying about Burma, but we follow Kaafir customs!

How then is Allah’s help going to come to this Ummat when we are not prepared to abandon all un-Islamic customs and all Haraam acts which bring about the wrath and punishment of Allah. May Allah make us realise our sins. Ameen

TAZIYAH JALSAHS AND MUFTI RAZAUL HAQ – DARUL ULOOM ZAKARIYYA

Q: MF RAZAUL HAQ OF DARUL ULOOM ZAKARIYYA HAS QUOTED A HADEETH FROM BUKHARI TO PROVE THAT TA’ZIYAH JALSAHS ARE PERMISSIBLE. HE EVEN SAYS THAT HAZRAT ABU BAKR RADHIYALLAHU ANHU RENDERED A SPEECH AT A GATHERING AFTER THE DEMISE OF NABI SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM?

PLEASE ADVISE.

A: Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “Whoever introduces into this Deen which is not part of it, is rejected.”

If the Sahaabah Radhiyallahu Anhum had Ta’ziyah Jalsahs, then why was Ta’ziyat Jalsahs not existent in the Shariah since their time until just very recently. In fact, the title ‘Ta’ziyat Jalsah’ is a newly-invented title.

Furthermore, Hazrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu did not host or participate or organize a Ta’ziyat Jalsah in honour of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Utilizing Hazrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu’s name in defence of a Bid’ah Ta’ziyah Jalsah is slanderous. Only Shias are capable of misusing the great and honourable name of Hazrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu.

The Hadeeth in Bukhari Shareef quoted by deviates does not make even the remotest reference to a Ta’ziyat Jalsah. The Sahaabi informally stood up and praised Allah and merely advised the Sahaabah Radhiyallahu Anhum to adopt Taqwa, make Istighfaar for their Ameer who passed away, etc. There was no Nazm, Qiraat, obituary, Khatam, congregational Dua, etc. Really, one has to be extremely stupid to use this Hadeeth as a basis for the new-fangled Bid’ati Ta’ziyah Jalsahs.

Just as how Moulood is Bid’ah, in the same way, these so-called Ta’ziyah Jalsahs are Bid’ah. The Shariah has a specific Sunnah method of carrying out Ta’ziyah.

The Masnoon Ta’ziyat (Condolence) practice of Islam consists of only a person visiting the home of the bereaved at any time during the first three days of the death, and to offer support, sympathy and encouragement to the bereaved relatives. .

Adding to or decreasing from the Deen anything, is not permissible. The Mufti who has the nerve of quoting Hazrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu’s noble name for a silly Ta’ziyah Jalsah, is behaving like a Shia-Kaafir! Likewise, the quote from Bukhaari has been misinterpreted.

Citing a Hadeeth or the illustrious names of the Sahaabah for a brand new innovated practice is a clear sign of adding to the Deen which is not part of it. By citing a Hadeeth, people start to believe that such innovated acts are part of Deen! Did the Mufti understand Ta’ziyat better than the Sahaabah? The Mufti/Molvi/Sheikh who presents such putrid arguments is behaving like the lost Mawlid/Meelaad/Moulood Bid’atis.

Are you sure that this rubbish Shia-Salafi-type argument has been disgorged from Mufti Razaul Haq? It is difficult to understand that Mufti Razaul Haq would write or blurt out such nonsense. If such Baatil views emerge from Darul Uloom Zakariyya or Mufti Razaul Haq, then at least you understand now why they are from the league of the Bid’ati Ulama-e-Soo.

Since when has Mufti Razaul Haq joined the league of the Bid’atis?

Since when has he joined the camp of the Ulama-e-Soo?

Since when has such a venerable Mufti degraded to such a low-level of the Shias?

Since when has such a Mufti ever become part of the Mudhilleen ilk?

May Allah guide this Mufti Razaul Haq to the right path. Ameen. But such a donkey-shia type so-called Fatwa only appeases the Taqiyah-deviates of this age.

Are people so corrupt that they are incapable of understanding that Ta’ziyah is not a Jalsah. This bid’ah so-called ‘ta’ziyah’ jalsah has absolutely not even a semblance of resemblance with the Masnoon Ta’ziyat act.

When people start quoting the Sahaabah in defence of their Haraam Bid’ah, then they should fear the everlasting consequences…

EBRAHIM BHAM ‘RESPONDS’ TO MUFTI AK HOOSEN SAHEB

Q: Moulana Ebrahim Bham issued a response to Mufti AK Hoosen of CII. I strongly feel that Moulana Ebrahim Bham is just making excuses. For instance, he says that he was constrained to attend the Haram marriage conference. Please advise

A: In English, there is a very beautiful idiom: ‘A drowning man will clutch at a straw’! But, Ebrahim Bham was so unfortunate that he was unable to even clutch at a single straw as every genuine and honest Muslim person knows that the marriage conference was Haraam. Mufti Motara of Darul Uloom Azaadville with many other Ulama criticized the marriage conference.

Now dont forget that Mufti Motara Saheb is the Ustaad of Mufti Zakariyya Pandor and Mufti Minty of the Fordsburg Jamiat. Mufti Minty and Mufti Zakariyya Pandor are Jamiat Fordsburg Muftis. What do these Fordsburg Jamiat Muftis have to say about Ebrahim Bham participating in the Haraam marriage conference? Why are these Muftis part of a Jamiat which indulges openly in Haraam?

Another Mufti is Mufti Razaul Haq. He is one of Sanhas favourite Muftis. He also criticized the marriage conference.

Why we quoted only Mufti Motara and Mufti Razaul Haq is because the corrupt Scholars for Dollars of the Fordsburg Jamiat like to quote the names of Mufti Motara, Mufti Razaul Haq and all similar-thinking Molvis. This Fordsburg Jamiat pushed its luck abit too far that even Muftis like Mufti Motara and Mufti Razaul Haq criticized Ebrahim Bham. And this is a major blow to the Fordsburg Jamiat.

No one grabbed Mr.Bham by the throat to drag him to the haraam conference. His claim of being ‘constrained’ is hogwash.

The Jamiatul Ulama Northern Cape will insha Allah issue a detailed response to Ebrahim Bham’s drivel.

NASHEED SHOWS, NASHEED TOURS, NAZM JALSAHS, QAWWAALIS AND QASEEDAH GATHERINGS

ONE WORLD NASHEED SHOW

ISHAQ AYUBI, WALEED BATA, RIDHWAAN CHOONARA, TAARIQ UWAIS MALINGA & QR OMAR BASHEIKH

ARE NASHEED SHOWS, NASHEED TOURS, NASHEED LAUNCHES, ETC PERMISSIBLE?

 

Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“They (the Mu’mineen) do not attend zoor. And when they pass by futility, they pass by with dignity.” (Surah Furqaan, Aayat 72)

Imaam Abu Bakr Jassaas, commenting on this aayat said: “It has been narrated from Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahmatullah alayh) that az-zoor is singing.” (Ahkaamul Qur’aan)

Hadhrat Ali (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “I have been sent (by Allah) to destroy musical instruments……The earning of a male singer and a female singer is haraam. The earning of zina is haraam. It is incumbent on Allah not to allow a body nourished by haraam, entry into Jahannum.” (Kaf-fur Ruaa’)

Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Listening to music and singing are sinful. Sitting at such gatherings is fisq (immoral transgression). Deriving pleasure from it is kufr.”(Nailul Autaar)

Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu Anhu) was invited to a Walimah (marriage feast). When he arrived at the house, he heard singing. He halted at the door. He was asked: Why have you halted?’

He replied: “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say: ‘He who increases the number of a crowd is of them. He who is pleased with an act of the people is a partner in its commission.”

(Al-Mataalibul Aaliyah as well as other kitaabs)

Hadhrat Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Beware of listening to musical instruments and singing, for verily, both these acts germinate nifaaq (hypocrisy) in the heart just as water causes vegetables to grow.” (Kaf-fur Ru’aa’)

These Nasheed shows and Nasheed tours which are becoming rampant are not permissible due to the following reasons:

1) Professional Singers: It is Haraam to be a professional singer in Islam – kindly view the following texts:

A – Hanafi Math-hab: “The Mashaaikh have explicitly mentioned that to sing for enjoyment/pleasure or to earn some money is Haraam without a difference of opinion” (Fathul Qadeer and other kitaabs)

What are these shows for? Mere fun and entertainment!!! Even their income is Haraam. A true Muslim understands that all these Nasheed shows, tours, etc. are for entertainment.

 “And the Shahaadat (testimony) will not be accepted of that singer with whom people associate and he gathers people (for his Nasheed shows, Nazm Jalsahs, and on his Naat tours).” (Mabsoot) – gathering people for singing (such as Nasheed Shows, Nazm Jalsahs, etc.) is very sinful and Haraam! This is mentioned in many kutub.

Explaining why the Shahaadat (testimony) of the one who sings for people/the public/ an audience will not be accepted, Sheikhul Islam, the great Muhaddith, Faqeeh-e-Mujtahid, Saahib-e-Hidaayah states: “…because he is gathering people for a major sin.”

“To sing for an audience even without musical instruments is a kabeerah (major) sin.”

(Fataawa Khairiyyah) – Singing for an audience is absolutely Haraam!

B – Shaafi’ Math-hab: Imaam Shaafi’ee Rahimahullah has clearly stated that the Shahaadat of a professional singer will not be valid. (Kitaabul Umm)

Allamah Ibn Hajar Haitami states regarding the person who becomes famous as a singer (like these Nasheed artists, Nazm singers , Album-launchers, etc.): “He is a Safeeh Mardoodush Shahaadah” (Kaffur-Ru’aa)

Safeeh means foolish, stupid. Mardoodush Shahaadah means such a person’s testimony will be rejected in an Islamic court.

Notwithstanding his leniency in the matter of singing, Imaam Ghazaali (rahmatullah alayh) states: “According to Imaam Shaafi (rahmatullah alayh) the testimony of a professional singer is rejected because singing is an abhorrent and Makrooh profession.” (Ihyaaul Uloom)

“And enumerated amongst the Muharramaat (Haraam acts) in At-Tanbeeh, is singing.” (Mughniyul Muhtaaj)

C – Maaliki Math-hab: Imaam Maalik Rahimahullah was asked about the singing gatherings of Madinah, he responded that these were the gatherings of the Fussaaq. (Al-Madkhal Li-Ibnil Haaj ; Al-Ilal)

“And singing and Lahw (futility/sport) – all of them – Teaching with a fee or without a fee is Haraam!” (Al-Kaafi)

“And (it is mentioned) in Mudawwanah: ‘The Shahaadat (testimony) of a male singer, female singer…, will be rejected when they are known/famous for it.” (Mawaahibul Jaleel)

D – Hambali Math-hab: “If someone is persistent in singing or he makes it a profession or he employs his slave or slave girl as a singer for audiences, his testimony will be rejected.” (Al-Ansaaf)

Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal states: “I asked my father about singing. He said: ‘Singing breeds Nifaaq (hypocrisy) in the heart just as how water grows crops and plants.”

Allaamah Ibn Jauzi Hambali states: “With regard to the singing which is in vogue nowadays, it is unlawful according to Imaam Ahmad….According to the Hambali Fuqaha, the testimony of a singer and a dancer is unacceptable.”         (Talbees Iblees)

There are many more quotes from all four Math-habs which indicate that professional singing is Haraam. However, the above suffices for the genuine truth-seeker.

There is, however, difference of opinion on the question of singing without musical instruments in solitude. For example, consider the following quote:

“…From this text of Imaam Muhammad it is proven that to sing even alone (without musical instruments) is haraam.”         (Bahrur Raaiq)

The text referred to above is a text in Ziyaadaat of Imaam Muhammed Rahimahullah.

Here is another text: “The apparent meaning is that singing is a major sin, even if it is not sung for an audience, but even for one’s self in order to banish loneliness and this is the view of Sheikhul Islam” (Bahrur Raaiq)

 “And the mas’alah indicates that singing alone (without musical instruments) is sinful and likewise listening to it.” (Badaaius Sanaai) – This is the opinion of many Fuqaha despite the fact that some have given permissibility to sing alone in order to banish loneliness – not for entertaining others!

The difference of opinion amongst the Fuqaha regarding the permissibility to sing in solitude to banish loneliness provided the song does not consist of immoral statements, and it has not developed into a habit clearly makes one realise that it is Haraam to sing for an audience and that Music is undoubtedly Haraam. Qawwaali, Nazm Jalsahs, Nasheed tours, Qaseedah Shows are thus Haraam. Singing with music is likewise Haraam even in solitude!

In fact there is Ijmaa’ (consensus) of all four Math-habs on the following:

  • Music is Haraam!
  • Singing for entertainment is Haraam, whether alone or for an audience – with or without musical instruments.
  • All songs which create negligence or contain any Haraam element or promote evil, shamelessness or any other impermissible act are Haraam even if they are sung in solitude with all the other accompanying factors necessary for the initial permissibility of singing in solitude.
  • Music or singing as one’s profession. It is Haraam to be a musician or a singer. Making musical instruments or singing as an occupation is Haraam. It is Haraam to be a professional singer or a Nasheed artist.

The above was a detailed explanation of the prohibition of professional Nasheed artists and Nazm singers which was the first reason explaining why Nasheed tours and Nasheed shows are Haraam. All these Nasheed shows, tours, Jalsahs, Najam Sheraz, etc. propagate and advertise the names of the famous singers as ‘Nasheed Artists’.

There is actually no need to present more reasons why Nasheed shows, Nasheed tours, etc. are Haraam. However, a few more reasons will briefly be mentioned:

  1. Singing for an audience – we have elaborated in much detail above. Even the singing of a non-professional for an audience is not permissible as understood from the above texts.

  1. Honouring Fussaaq – Imaam Maalik Rahimahullah declared such type of gatherings as gatherings of the Fussaaq. The singers are openly indulging in sin as explained in much detail above. Thus, attending such a function and giving the stage to such singers is honouring an open sinner (a Faasiq). Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:

“When a Faasiq is praised, the Arsh of Allah shakes.”

 

  1. Listening to Haraam – when their singing is Haraam, then listening to it is likewise Haraam. Attending it and promoting it is also Haraam!

5. Women listening to Men Singing– this is Fitnah! The singing of a young beardless boy or a woman is likewise undoubtedly Haraam.

  1. The presence of women even if it is in a so-called ‘Purdah’ facility/section – Women are commanded to remain at home. The Qur’aan and Sunnah emphasizes that women should remain glued to their homes.

  1. Intermingling of the sexes – this is the gateway to ZINA.

  1. The Nazms/Naats/Nasheeds/ Qaseedahs are in emulation of the songs of the Fussaaq – the style and tune is sometimes like some English or Hindi song. They copy Bollywood tunes, weird rappers, and what not. Clearly, this is Tashabbuh Bil Kuffaar which is Haraam. There is much harm in emulating Fussaaq and Kuffaar.

  1. Background sounds and musical tunes – The background sounds, etc. makes it sound like music. That is why many people ‘enjoy’ these so-called Zikr CD’s because it is fun ‘Zikr’ – not real Zikr. Shaytaan has misled these people with musical tunes and background sounds. This is indeed Istikhfaaf (treating lightly) the Zikr of the pure name of Allah.

  1. The singers are at times clean-shaven, dress up un-Islamically, etc. – This is the case with many of them. It is a mockery of the Deen.

  1. Videos, Youtube, Video Clips, ITV, etc etc – The singers indulge in videos. The video clips are propagated by Fussaaq. The whole show, tour, etc. is videoed. At times, it is broadcasted on TV. The Haraam songs are propagated on Youtube, Facebook, etc.

  1. Photography – this is like almost a must these days with every Haraam function. All photos of animate objects– digital or not – are Haraam! Even these so-called ‘Nasheed artists’ indulge in Haraam pictography.

  1. Defiling the sanctity of the Masjid – at times the Haraam Jalsah or show is held at a ‘Masjid’ or on ‘Masjid’ premises. This is disrespectful and a dishonour to the House of Allah. The House of Allah is for Ibaadat – not entertainment!

  1. Propagating all the Haraam as ‘Islamic’ – this is a major crime in Islam. They even justify the Haraam shows. They know deep down their hearts that it is Haraam entertainment, but they use titles like ‘Nasheeds for Syria’, ‘Nazm Jalsah’, ‘Ishq-e-Nabi Tour’, ‘Naat Khawan’, etc etc. These programs are very far from Deen. In fact, these Haraam shows divert a person’s attention away from Deen. This is Shaitaaniyyat!

  1. Music or musical styles – at times Music accompanies the singing. Most of the times, the style of the show, ‘Jalsah’, etc. is identical to the musical shows of the Kuffaar!
  2. Clapping of hands or Dancing – Sometimes people dance with the tune, which is Haraam. The clapping of hands is likewise a Kaafir custom. Dancing is Haraam!

  1. Imitating the Fussaaq – The singers imitate Fussaaq. Moreover, the audience imitate the Fussaaq singers. After the show, they even mimic the Nasheed Artists and sing the songs of the Haraam show.

  1. Showing respect and more time for songs than the Qur’aan – these shows and tours divert a person’s mind away from the Qur’aan. People show so much respect and have much time for these Kaafir types of entertainment that many do not show the same respect for the Qur’aan. In fact, attending such a function is in itself disrespectful and open disobedience to the Qur’aan. The Aayat was quoted right at the beginning.

  1. Futility – these gatherings are futile. They are not beneficial. They are harmful. And Haraam is never permissible despite some of its benefits. The harms outweigh the benefits. One attains nothing from such a futile show or gathering but the Wrath of Allah Ta’ala.

  1. Waste of time and money – These programs are a waste of time and waste of money – Muslims are suffering around the world, but we have money and time to squander. Have we become so forgetful of the Aakhirah, Qiyaamah and the Qabr?

  1. Unsavoury and Haraam venues – Many a times the venue is improper or Haraam.

JIMMYS KILLER PRAWNSCOMMERCIAL MEATS AND BUTCHERIES

The ‘One World Nasheed Show’ to be held at Jimmy’s is Haraam. Besides prawns being Haraam according to many Ulama which should caution us to prefer and choose abstention, Jimmy’s and almost all these famous restaurants like Spur, Debonairs, Steers, KFC, Adega, Wimpy, Chicken Licken, Mcdonalds, Panarottis, Flambos, Mochachoes, ETC ETC deal in Haraam meat. Their steaks, mutton and chicken is 99% of the time Haraam!

Also, most Muslim butcheries are dealing in Haraam meat. They obtain their Haraam meats from Karan Beef, Rainbow Chickens, GWK Mutton, Earlybird, Country Range, Country Meats, Chubby Chick, Farmer Brown, Romeo, Sadia, Supreme, Outspan, Countyfair, Rocklands, Brazil chickens, etc etc. All imported and commercial mutton, chicken and beef is Haraam! May Allah make it easy for us to understand this undeniable reality and may Allah make it easy for us to abstain from Haraam functions and Haraam food. Ameen

 

IN CONCLUSION: ALL THESE NASHEED SHOWS, NASHEED TOURS, NAJAM SHERAZ, QAWWAALIS, MUSIC SHOWS, QASEEDAH, NAAT & NAZM JALSAHS ARE HARAAM!!!

YASMIN MOGAHED, SULAIMAAN RAVAT AND SAUF

YASMIN MOGAHED, SULAIMAAN RAVAT AND SAUF

Q: WHAT IS THE STATUS OF YASMIN MOGAHED? SULAIMAAN RAVAT SEEMS TO HAVE ENJOYED QUOTING YASMIN MOGAHED’S NAME AT THE SAUF CONFERENCE?

A: Sulaimaan Ravat is a Shaitaan. Yasmin Mogahed is a Shaitaanah. They are perfect matches for one another. Sulaimaan Ravat doesn’t want to propagate what his Ustaads in Azaadville say about women attending Masjids but he enjoys the views of Faasiqahs like Yasmin Mogahed, Quraisha Ismail Sooliman, etc. He should feel ashamed of himself!

Inform Sulaimaan Ravat to openly state on Radio ‘Islam’ what his Ustaad Mufti Motara said very recently about women attending the Masaajid. But Sulaimaan Ravat gives preference to Yasmin Mogahed over his Ustaads in Azaadville!

 

Only deviates are part of SAUF. Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “He who increases the number of a crowd, is part of them!”

SULAIMAN MOOLA, NINOWY, HAMZA YUSUF AND THE HARAAM SHAMELESS RIS CONVENTION

SULAIMAN MOOLA, NINOWY, HAMZA YUSUF AND THE HARAAM SHAMELESS RIS CONVENTION

Q: THERE IS A PHOTO ON TWITTER POSTED 3 MARCH 2017. THE PHOTO SHOWS ML SULAIMAN MOOLA SEATED AT A DINNER TABLE WITH INDIVIDUALS INCLUDING HAMZA YUSUF, SIRAJ WAHHAJ AND THE MALAYSIAN DEPUTY MINISTER OF ISLAMIC AFFAIRS.

A WOMAN IS SEATED AT THE SAME TABLE AS ML. SULAIMAN MOOLA. ONLY ONE PERSON SEGREGATES HER FROM BEING SEATED DIRECTLY NEXT TO ML. SULAIMAN MOOLA ON THE TABLE. HER FACE IS COMPLETELY EXPOSED AND HER ‘HIJAB’ EXPOSES HER HAIR TO A LARGE EXTENT. 

I DO UNDERSTAND THAT THE RIS (REVIVING THE ISLAMIC SPIRIT) CONVENTION HELD A FEW MONTHS AGO IN MALAYSIA IS HARAAM. COULD YOU PLEASE ADVISE THE UMMAH REGARDING THIS ML. SULAIMAN MOOLA CHAP WHO IS MISLEADING THE UMMAH?

A: Sulaiman Moola has in fact revealed his true Mudhilleen colours by participating in the Haraam RIS Convention. The very same Haraam acts applicable to the marriage conference applies to the RIS Convention.

All the participants of the RIS Convention are deviated Fussaaq. Sulaiman Moola advertises himself as a lecturer of Darul Uloom Zakariyya. Now this is deception!

No Hijaab, intermingling of the sexes, photos , videos and so much Haraam they do in the name of Deen. Ninowy, Hamza Yusuf, etc are deviates.

The question is: Is Sulaiman Moola a reflection of his Ustaads?
