THE MOON MADNESS OF THE MORON SCIENTISTS
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said to Hadhrat Aishah (Radhiyallahu anha) while looking at the moon:
“Seek refuge with Allah from this (moon), for verily it is ghaasiq when it disappears (into darkness).”
The Masnoon Dua when seeing the moon is:
“O Allah! I seek refuge with you from the evil of this ghaasiq.”
“Ghaasiq” refers to the moon which disappears into darkness when it hides behind clouds and also during an eclipse. The evil emanating from the moon is confirmed in the Ahaadith. One such evil is mental derangement, insanity or partial madness which some people suffer on occasions of full moon. Whatever the evil may be, the fact is that we have been instructed to seek Allah’s protection from the sharr (evil) of the moon.
In the light of the sharr of the moon, we should also seek refuge with Allah Azza Wa Jal from the sharr of the astronomers, liberals, and modernist zanaadaqah who have been mentally deranged by the evil emanating from the moon, hence the indurate obsession with the moon. These misguided characters are always found to create confusion with their moon-calculating sciomancy. They work with the devils and it is Iblees who whispers satanism into their brains. They are never satisfied with the Laws of Allah Ta’ala, hence they twaddle away with their astronomical stupidities producing flapdoodle arguments whilst the Shariah has provided such anodyne principles for the Ahkaam which are readily understandable and acceptable to the Ummah.
In this age, the brains of modernists, the zanaadiqah, the moron astronomers and liberals are all detrimentally affected by the sharr of the moon, hence they perennially kick up dust and pipe a lot of bunkum hot air with their haraam, baatil theory of plotting the Islamic (lunar) calendar by means of astronomical calculations. Their satanic desire is to abolish the Waajib fourteen century command of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to begin and end the Islamic months with Rooyat-e-Hilaal, i.e. the physical sighting of the crescent moon (hilaal).
While the Shariah as propounded by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has ordained the determinant to be physical sighting, the cartel of morons mentioned above, in denial of this divine principle, are stupidly and satanically labouring to hoist their haraam idea of the birth of the moon to be the determinant for establishing the commencement of the new Islamic month.
The trash of the astronomers has been thoroughly refuted and debunked in our books: The Baatil Fatwa Of The New York Darul Ifta (Moon Sighting), Global Moon sighting, Rooyat-e-Hilaal & Astronomical Calculations, Eid 1435/2014 Moon Mess, Sighting of the Hilaal; which are available on our website as well as in the form of hard copies. We have available these titles which discuss and thoroughly debunk all the nonsensical, baatil excrescences which these morons conjecture in their abortive attempt to undermine the Shariah of Allah Ta’ala.
One jaahil, Dr. Ahmad Al Kubasi dubbed as a ‘leading Muslim scholar’, disgorging his kufr effluvium, says:
“The Prophet [PBUH], indeed, instructed the companions to establish the first day of Ramadan by sighting the moon, but then he stated that the reason for his directive was the inability of early Muslim community to provide accurate calculation. The community was then illiterate and did not master reading, writing or calculation. They had no experienced astronomers who have access to the knowledge, tools and facilities to determine with accuracy the beginning of the lunar month. Consequently, moon sighting was the only tool available for the early Muslim community,” he said.
Dr Al Kubaisi added that the Prophet (PBUH), however, taught us that we are the Ummah of knowledge (Ilm). And we have to achieve progress, seek knowledge and be up to date with the reality of the time we live in. And therefore, Muslims established astronomical observations, and they invented the modern systems that help in sighting the new moon. They started to implement the astronomical calculations in conjunction with the visual moon sighting.
This jaahil ‘scholar’ has blurted out a lie which he attributes to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) who had not issued the instruction claimed by this zindeeq. No such instruction was issued by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) mentioned no reason for the order of sighting the hilaal as claimed by the zindeeq ‘scholar’. About these types of zanaadaqah ‘scholars’, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Whoever speaks a lie on me should prepare his abode in the Fire.”
The principle established by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) for commencing the Islamic month is Rooyat-e-Hilaal (Sighting the moon with the eyes). Ijma’ of the Ummah – of all Math-habs – has existed since the era of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to this day on the validity of this divinely commanded principle, and that there is no other method other than Rooyat-e-hilaal for determining the Islamic months.
The claim of the zindeeq that the entire Muslim community during the time of Rasulullah was uneducated and unable to read, write and calculate, is preposterously false. This very community of Sahaabah, headed by a shepherd, viz. Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu), had established an Empire which stretched from the shores of the Atlantic in the west to the walls of China, in fact beyond the walls, in the east. These Sahaabah were not morons as are these astronomers and stupid ‘scholars’ of today.
The illiteracy of the majority of Arabs should not be confused with stupidity and ignorance. There were numerous among the Sahaabah who were experts in writing, reading and calculations. How did they calculate the shares of Inheritance, Zakaat and other Shar’i ahkaam which required calculation? How did they manage the finances of such a huge Empire? The 124,000 Sahaabah were not morons as these stupid modernists are portraying.
The Qur’aan Majeed was committed to writing by the Sahaabah. The Baitul Maal of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen – all Sahaabah – handled huge amounts of wealth. Nothing was haphazardly thrown into the storerooms of the Baitul Maal.
The Hadith in which Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) mentioned that “We are an Ummi nation. We do not calculate nor write.”, was for emphasizing the principle of Rooyat-e-hilaal. It was in abnegation of astronomical theories, intricacies, and calculations. In other words, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was saying that there is no need for causing obfuscation with astronomical intricacies. The laws of the Shariah are simple and uniformly applicable to people of all hues and varieties – to the illiterate village dweller and to the scientist.
The determination of the Islamic months is not encumbered by the mass of astronomical mess of calculations which are the preserve of generally the zanaadiqah. There was absolutely no need for ‘experienced astronomers’ to understand and determine the beginning of the Islamic month just as there is no need for these moron ‘scientists’ to understand the times of Salaat. Since the Islamic months are not reliant on such calculations, there never was the need for the input of these moron astronomers and scientists. In fact, they are incapable of providing any reliable input. They excel only in kufr output.
The Shariah is not reliant on these cranks and juhala. As far as the Shariah is concerned they are cranks. Only cranks venture into a domain for which they lack the requisite qualifications.
Their stupidity is mind-boggling. They are unable to distinguish between the birth of the moon and the sighting of the moon. These are two widely different principles. According to the Shariah, the principle is sighting the hilaal not the birth of the moon. Rejecting the Shar’i principle to substitute it with a principle which is foreign to Islam is explicit kufr.
The ‘modern systems’ mentioned by the jaahil ‘scholar’, contrary to what he says and understands, do not facilitate in sighting the moon. These systems only increase the confusion and controversy. There is no need for any modern system to establish the Islamic months. If the simple Shar’i system is adhered to, there will be no confusion and controversy which develop only when morons seek to supersede the Shariah. There is no need for implementing astronomical calculations in conjunction with visual moon-sighting. Just as only hilaal-sighting was sufficient for Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah, and for the Ummah in every century of Islam’s history, so too is it adequate for us and for all Muslims until the Day of Qiyaamah.
