Qiyaamah cannot be in the too distant future. In our midst the preponderance of the worst scum under the canopy of the sky –worse than khanaazeer (swines), and worse than even the idol-worshippers is the rotten scoundrel of the MJC with Taha Karaan, Iblees-in-Chief in total abnegation of the Command of Allah Azza Wajal, declaring to the ignoramuses who follow the MJC devils that Jumua; Salaat has been suspended.

In the more than fourteen century history of Islam NEVER EVER was there a suspension of Jumuah Salaat nor of any Salaat. Despite thousands of Muslims, including numerous Sahaabah and senior Taabieen being martyred in the severe plague in the Land of Shaam during the Khilaafat of Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu) never was Jumuah suspended. All Muslims, those affected by the plague, those suffering  from the disease, and the healthy ones – all of them performed Jumuah and every Salaat in Jamaa’t in the Musjid having in their hearts with the firmest conviction the proclamation of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam): “LA ADWAA” There is no contagion.”

Regardless of what the atheist medical experts say and regardless of what the ape, jaahil sheikhs and moron molvis say, disease is NOT contagious. It overtakes only by Allah’s command. It being Allah’s punishment cannot be contained, cannot be thwarted, cannot be eliminated, and no earmarked person will escape its apprehension. The plague has a trajectory to follow. It has its obligation of apprehending all those for whom Allah’s Athaab has been decreed. None of the earmarked victims will escape regardless of whatever measures are adopted to combat the plague. It will run its divinely ordained course.

In suspending Jumuah the Cape Town Devils of the MJC with their Chief Shaitaan, Ta Ha Karaan, have set themselves up as the adversaries of Allah Azza Wa Jal. They should now await for their necks to be broken by Divine Chastisement. The La’nat of Allah Azza Wa jal has already settled on them. From their faces percolates pure shaitaaniyat. They reek of the vilest odours which shaitaaniyat emits.

There is no need to produce Qur’aanic Aayat and Ahaadith narrations to bolster the fundamental importance of Jumuah. There cannot be any sincere Muslim who is unaware of the imperative importance – of the fundamental importance of Jumuah Salaat. Only munaafiqeen and zindeeqs of the rotten MJC ilk masquerading as Muslims can have the shaitaani temerity to announce the suspension of Jumuah Salaat. These enemies of Allah, enemies of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the enemies of the Ummah are the worst traitors to Islam who have appeared in the history of Islam.

Never in Islam’s history have Muslims been confronted by a disaster of this magnitude. The destruction of the Muslim World and horrendous brutalities of the Mongols, and even the destruction of the Muslim lands under the communist domination of the Soviets, were not as horrible and abominable as the announcement made by the Khanaazeer Murtaddeen of the MJC. They have put swines to shame with their vile kufr announcement.

They have no Imaan. They have no belief in the Aakhirah and they have all along been munaafiqeen slinking in the community as ‘leaders’ and ‘ulama’ when they are in reality the Agents of Iblees. Those Muslims who have some understanding of Islam should know that Salaat behind these murtad scoundrels is not valid.

May the La’nat and Ghadhab of Allah Azza Wa Jal apprehend them. May Allah Ta’ala destroy these Shayaateenul Ins whom Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) feared more than even Dajjaal.




I am a wretched Muslim whose Imaani equilibrium is skewed by my sins, but even I can see how Muslims are disgracing themselves through rabid fear of the Coronavirus, aping every precautionary minuscule advice of the kuffar and placing almost zero reliance on a’maal.

In essence, most Muslims, through this incident, have displayed that they have no faith in the Power of Allah to allay all their fears and illnesses through Salah, Qur’an, Dhikr etc. Instead they dispense with this notion or disingenuously say: “we need to adopt the means too” fallaciously quoting authentic narrations in isolation, when in reality they are seeking to justify their faith is entirely in the means.

They believe Shifa is in a vaccine (a weakened form of the filth that is the virus) and forget Allah Ta’ala specifically states that he has kept shifa in Qur’an. They have made the kuffar doctors their Lord in this matter & have zero belief that Allah can & will cure them through A’amaal.

Whenever Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam faced any difficulty he would at once resort to Salah not sanitiser and if a Muslim has conviction that through the shield of Salah, Allah will protect him, Allah will most certainly do so.

What next? Stop adopting the Sunnah of plate sharing because some westernised doctor whose brain is filled with impurity of kufr said so?

People go to work, unceremoniously mix with the impurity of kufr but now they suddenly can’t go to the fort of Allah – the Masjid. They are happy to earn their money in the impure environment of kufr because money is their God, but they cannot congregate in the purity of Masjid in the environment of the protecting angels.

They can herd together in a shop to buy toilet paper, but going to the Masjid, when they are showing no signs of illness is problematic.

Then we wonder why the Muslims the world over are subjugated. They resort to toilet rolls as their saviour and don’t place their trust in Allah. We’re not fit to be rulers. We’re only fit to be herded around like cattle by our kuffar masters. (End of the Brother’s Naseehat)

Many Muslims have complained about the saahirah ‘aapa’ operating her sihr shaitaaniyat under guise of some confounded ‘therapy’ which itself is a hotch potch of kufr concepts and methods. One of the complainants wrote:

“There is an aalimah in Azaadville who has posted an advertisement about her so-caled ‘jihaadun nafs’ therapy. She is ensnaring a lot of women. She has copied many cults. She has advertised her cult and charges a fee of R6,500 for participation. What is the view of the Shariah regarding this type of therapy and what is the status of this woman who conducts this very expensive course?” (End of letter)

It is shockingly surprising that the girls madrasah has retained the teaching services of this marauding witch who poses as an ‘aalimah’, when in reality she is not even a Muslim. Her ‘therapy’ shaiyaaniyat being spawned by shaitaan is a snare to entrap gullible ignorant women. The saahirah’s motive is the haraam boodle which has driven her into the arms of Iblees. The sihr expels her from the fold of Islam, and all those who submit to her shaitanaiyat, also lose their Imaan.

Muslim women are expected to reflect and understand that the shaitaani wares of this Azaadville Witch are nugatory of Imaan.  Participation in her satanism is the elimination of Imaan. It is indeed surprising that Muslim women will pay R6,500 for dabbling and dalliancing with  satanism. There is no room in Islam for the haraam cult practices which the Azaadville  Saahirah sells, and most deceptively covers the shaitaaniyat with Islamic terminology. Her advert conspicuously testifies to the shaitaaniyat of her haraam therapy methods and concepts.


In all forms of this type of cult-therapies, shaitaan is the originator. He appoints men and women as his agents to promote his shaitaniyat.

This Azaadville saahirah comes within the scope of the evil naffaathaat (witches who blow on knots)mentioned in Surah Falaq. Allah Ta’ala instructs us to seek His protection against the evil of the naffaathaat. Even if the Azaadville witch does not literally ‘blow on knots’, she is in the category of the  naffaathaat. “Blowing on knots” mentioned in the Qur’aan Majeed is just one form of the satanic methodology of the saahiraat (witches) and saahireen (sorcerers).

Stay far from all human devils who practice weird therapies, and stay far from also the Ruqyah cartel of the Tunisian character who also utilizes the name of the Deen to promote his baatil khuraafaat. The bottom line and the primary, in fact only objective of these weird characters with their bizarre satanic methods and therapies is nothing but money which they fleece from stupid Muslims whose Imaani deficiency exposes them to the trickery of Iblees and his agents.


A Brother writes:

“In its advert on the Corona epidemic, the Islamic Medical Association offers the following advice:

  • If you have a cough and fever perform salaah at home
  • Make wudhu at home, to reduce spread of virus via towels at Masjids.
  • Wash your hands more often
  • Cover your mouth or nose when coughing or sneezing.”

Please comment.”

COMMENT (By Mujlisul Ulama):

Insha-Allah we shall comment in detail on the China Pig Disease which is causing panic to people of deficient Imaan and to those who have no Imaan but masquerade as Muslims.

(1)  The advice to perform Salaat at home is kufrbunkum. Jamaat Salaat in the Musjid is Waajib. The fear being magnified in emulation of the kuffaar concern and fear, has constrained the Zindeeqs of the Medical Association to proffer such kufr advice. These fellows lack valid Imaan, hence they broadcast the kufr of the kuffaar. Their brains are strapped within the restrictive parameter of their kufr education. They disgorge bunkum from their brains fitted in kuffaar university straitjackets.

(2) Fourteen centuries ago the Sunnah of our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has provided the ta’leem of proceeding to the Musjid in the state of Wudhu. It is an imperative attraction of Imaan to make wudhu at home to gain the rewards of Salaat, Forgiveness and Elevation of ranks with every step in the direction of the Musjid.

The niyyat of making Wudhu at home must NOT be for complying with the stupid kuffaar advices. The niyyat should be only the rewards mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Just as fasting is defective if the objective is to reduce weight and gain gealth, so too will the rewards of making wudhu at home be nullified if the motivation is fear for the China Pig Disease.

(3) The Sunnah teaches us to wash our hands many times daily. The Zindeeqs want to activate this Sunnah not because it is the Sunnah commanded by Allah Ta’ala, but because they are spineless and in the state of panic. They fear the China Pig Disease while they have NO fear for Allah Ta’ala. They mix up their stupid advert with some Ahaadith to bamboozle the ignorant ones, and to   project themselves as Muslims when in reality their hearts are bereft of Imaan.

Yes, do wash your hands as often as possible, not because of the Chinaman Pig Filth, but because it is a command of our Shariah. Do not commit the shirk of believing in any power other than Allah Ta’ala. Do not pretend to practice a Sunnah if your motivation is fear for the Pig Disease.

Not only hands, but even clean-washed utensils should be washed again just before use.

(4) Covering the nose and mouth when sneezing and coughing is a Sunnah extant in the Ummah for more than fourteen centuries. However, western kufr education and culture have made Muslims oblivious of these demands of the Shariah.  While Muslims are required to do so at all times, not only when there is a PIG DISEASE epidemic, there will be no thawaab if the intention is the effect of the China Pig Disease. Thawaab is only when an act of Islam is executed as an act of Ibaadat.

Proffering Naseehat to the vile molvis, miserable sheikhs and the bogus khaanqah ‘spiritual guides’, Allaamah Abdul Wahhaab Sha’raani (Rahmatullah alayh) of the 10th Islamic century, begins with the citation of the following Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam):

“By Allah! If you knew what I know (of Maut, the Qabr and the Aakhirah), you will laugh little and cry much; you will not derive pleasure from your wives in your beds, and you will flee into the wilderness beseeching Allah Azza Wa Jal (for  refuge and safety).”

Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu anhu) narrated:

“It is indeed surprising to see a man laughing while Jahannam is ahead of him, and it is surprising to see a man happy while Maut is hotly pursuing him.”

Allaamah Sha’raani says: “Whoever saw Hasan Basri (Rahmatullah alayh), he would conclude that he (Hasan Basri) had just emerged from a momentous calamity. This was because of the grief observable on him.”

Hadhrat Fudhail Bin Iyaadh (Rahmatullah alayh) said:

“There are numerous people lost in laughter (and merrymaking) while their kafan has just arrived.”

Hadhrat Ibn Marzooq (Rahmatullah alayh) said:

“A man who claims to be remorseful and grief-stricken for his sins, but then indulges in delicious foods is a liar.”

Presenting the tafseer of the Qur’aanic Aayat: ‘It (the Book of Deeds) does not omit any sagheerah (sin) or kabeerah (sin), but it records it.’, Imaam Auzaai’ (Rahmatullah alayh) said that the meaning of sagheerah is tabassum (to smile), and the meaning of kabeerah is qahqahah (loud laughter).” Commenting on this tafseer, Allaamah Sha’raani  said that in the context of Imaam Auzaai’s tafseer, tabassum  means  such smiling  in which there is sound although substantially less than qahqahah (loud laughter).

Thaabit Bunaani (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “A Mu’min laughs only when he is oblivious (ghaafil) of Maut.”

Aamir Bin Qais (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “Those who indulge in much laughter on earth, will cry much in Jahannam.”

Saeed Bin Abdul Azeez (Rahmatullah alayh) had not laughed for forty years until his death.

Hadhrat Anas Bin Maalik (Radhiyallahu anhu) said: “In a gathering, there is a shaitaan with every person who laughs.”

There is israaf (waste) in everything. Wahab Bin Al-Ward (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “Laughing without israaf is to smile without exposing the teeth. Clothes without israaf are garments sufficient to cover the body and shield it from the weather conditions.  Food without israaf, is food which is sufficient for eliminating hunger and which does not fully fill the stomach.”

Abdul Bin Abu Zaid (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “When some among the Sahaabah began joking (being merry), the following Qur’aanic Verse was revealed:  ‘What! Has the time not arrived for the people of Imaan that their hearts become tender for the Thikr of Allah and for the truth He has revealed? Do not be like those who have been given the Kitaab before you (i.e. the Yahood and Nasaara). Then after a long period lapsed (and they became desensitized) their hearts hardened. Numerous of them are faasiqoon.”      (Al-Hadeed, Aayat 16)

Hadhrat Aishah (Radhiyallahu anha) narrated that once when Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) entered the Musjid he found some Sahaabah laughing. With his mubaarak face reddening, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Are you laughing despite your Rabb not having revealed that you are forgiven? Concerning your laughter, Allah Ta’ala has revealed this verse……. (as above).”

Smitten with remorse, the Sahaabah asked: “What is the kaffaarah (expiation) for us having laughed?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Cry as much as you have laughed.”

Once when some people from Yamaama were by Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiyallahu anhu), this verse was recited. The people began to weep. Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiyallahu anhu) commented: “We also used to cry like this. Then there came such people whose hearts were hard.” (i.e. Like the jalsah merrymaking mobs).

Allaamah Sha’raani (Rahmatullah alayh) said:  “There are two factors which distinguish the Ahlullah (People of Allah) from the Ghair Ahlullah (those who are not the people of Allah, but are the people of the devil). The People of Allah are perpetually focused on the Aakhirah, and they engage in making preparations for the Aakhirah.” These two features of the Ahlullah are not to be found in the merrymaking Ghair Ahlullaah jalsah mobs who indulge in festivities, eating, laughter, waste and riya.

From the aforegoing Naseehat of Allaamah Sha’raani and from many Qur’aanic Aayaat and Ahaadith, the villainy and hurmat of the glut of jalsahs should be quite manifest to every sincere seeker of the Haqq. The hifz jalsah held at the Hilal Musjid in Durban as well as all other jalsahs in our time are all in diametric conflict with the teachings and spirit of the Deen. In fact, these jalsahs are immoral and the participants are callously obscene.

How is it possible for Muslims of healthy Imaan to indulge in wasteful merrymaking practices such as are advertised on their posters when the Ummah at large is suffering in their millions. The ulama and the so-called hadhrats are indeed most callous and obscene in organizing and participating in these khuraafaat jalsahs of riyatakabbur and israaf. Their hearts have become hard like those of the Yahood and Nasaara as mentioned in the Qur’aan Majeed specifically in relation to merrymaking.

Muslim refugees are literally freezing to death currently. They are without shelter, without even a small tent to shield themselves against the freezing weather conditions. But these molvis and sheikhs with their obese bodies and gluttonous appetites for sumptuous meals in emulation of Hindu Brahmin priests, are satanically ghaafil about the plight of the Ummah despite them teaching in their darul jahals. Ahaadith such as:

“The Muslimoon (the Ummah) are like one person. If the eye pains the whole body is affected, and if the head pains, the whole body is affected.”

While they teach such Ahaadith and are fully aware of the command implied, they are recklessly oblivious in their shaitaani ghaflat. And the same applies to those who squander large sums of money on so-called ‘umrah’ trips which are nothing but haraam holidaying and merrymaking. While they may succeed in their self-deception they cannot fool Allah Ta’ala. They will rue their callousness at the time of their Maut.

The ulama no longer are the guides of the people. On the contrary, they are mudhilleen (mis-leaders) about whom Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that for his Ummah he feared these mudhilleen so-called ulama more than his fear for even Dajjaal. About these ulama, Hadhrat Fudhail Bin Iyaadh (Rahmatullah alayh) said about 13 centuries ago whilst addressing Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri (Rahmatullah alayh):

“O Assembly of the Ulama! What naseehat can I offer you? You were once upon a time the lanterns of guidance for the people. Your light diffused in the cities. But today you are total darkness. First you were Stars of Hidaayat. People dwelling in the darkness of ignorance would find the Road of Guidance through your medium. But now you yourselves are trapped in confusion. You visit the rulers. You sit on their carpets.

You consume their food, and you accept gifts from them. Then you come and sit in the Musjid narrating Hadith from Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). By Allah! Ilm is not acquired for these acts.”

So touching was this naseehat that Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri (Rahmatullah alayh) sobbed in such abundance that he became breathless. But today, no amount of naseehat, no amount of the mention of Maut, the Qabr, Jahannam and the Aakhirat has any effect on the hearts of these fussaaq and fujjaar molvis and sheikhs. Their hearts have become indurate, repelling every naseehat of the Qur’aan and Hadith. About such stone-hearted molvis and sheikhs who are plodding the pathway of the Ulama of Bani Israaeel, the Qur’aan Majeed mentions:

“Then their hearts became hard like stone or even harder, for verily from some rocks gush forth rivers, and some rocks split open and fountains emerge, and some stones (boulders) roll from heights out of fear for Allah.”

But the hearts of these molvis and sheikhs remain impervious to all the naseehat of the Qur’aan and Ahaadith, and to even the naseehat of our recent Akaabir such as Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) who had vigorously condemned these jalsahs which are nothing but haraam gatherings of merrymaking organized for the acquisition of nafsaani objectives.

The spiritual necrosis which is gnawing the brains and hearts of the jalsah gangs of molvis and sheikhs have totally blinded their spiritual hearts, hence spiritual perception of realities has become an impossibility for them. About them, Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“The physical eyes are not blind. But the hearts within the breasts are blind.”

The jalsah molvis are rotten with the disease of riya. It is gangerine of the brains and hearts, hence they crave for recognition. Thus, they deem it imperative to advertise their madrasahs and whatever other so-called deeni activities they are involved in. About these men of riya, Hadhrat Fudhail Bin Iyaadh (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “If you see an Aalim becoming happy when praised by the wealthy and the people of the dunya, then understand that he is a riya kaar.”

A sure sign of the disease of riya in a person is that he takes affront and becomes agitated when this disease is pointed out to him. Hadhrat Saalih Al-Marri (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “A man who believes that he has Ikhlaas in his Ilm should focus on his nafs when people say that he is a riyaa kaar. If he becomes pleased for being thus charged, then he is truthful (in his belief of ikhlaas). If his heart becomes constricted (i.e. he is affronted), then he should understand that he is a riya kaar.” 

So, O Clique and Gang of molvis and sheikhs, when reading our naseehat, examine your hearts, fear Allah and know well that Maut is hovering over you.

Proferring naseehat to the masses, Hadhrat Saalih Al-Marri (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “Beware of the company of a worldly Aalim. He will cast you into deception with his glib tongue (and eloquent speech), and whilst not practising (on the Ilm he had acquired), he will praise the Ulama (to deceive you).”

Hadhrat Fudhail Bin Iyaadh (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “It is inappropriate for an Aalim to express happiness over his Ilm. Yes, he may do so only after he has crossed the Pul Siraat (the Bridge over Jahannam).”

The only objective of all of these shaitaani jalsahs is riya or money or both. That is why they advertise themselves, their institutions and their students. Whereas true Ilm cultivates Tawaadhu’ (humility) and Khashiyat (fear), the juhala stock which these darul jahals nowadays produce are drunk with ostentation. They stupidly dwell in the deception of them being Ulama when they lack the ability to even read the Arabic texts of the Kutub correctly. Instead of guiding the students along the Pathway of Tawaadhu’ and Khashiyat, the Madaaris of this era ruin the Akhlaaq of the Talaba and pave the path of Jahannam for them.

Allah Ta’ala, describing who the Ulama are, says in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“Verily, of His servants only the Ulama fear Allah.”

Is there any semblance of tawaadhu and khashiyat in these satanic jalsahs of israaf and riya? Merrymaking is the ethos of jalsahs. If the jalsah molvis had been true repositories of Ilm, never would they derive pleasure in all the self-expression and in their quest for recognition, and in their crave for donations. Hadhrat Zunnun Misri (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “Disinclination from the dunya is proportionate with increase in Ilm. The more progress is made in Ilm, the more one develops an aversion for the dunya. But today (i.e. several centuries ago) it is seen that the more knowledge a man gains, the greater becomes his love for the dunya. His desire for expensive garments, delicious food, mansions, etc. increases.”

This is exactly the condition of today’s ulama. Hadhrat Sufyaan Bin Uyainah (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “How is it possible for a reciter of the Qur’aan to make amal on it when he sleeps away the night, abstains from (Nafl) fasting during the day and eats mushtabah and haraam food.”

The obesity and diseases generally plaguing the molvis of this age are the effects of devouring carrion chickens, carrion meat, mushtabah and haraam. Hadhrat Umar Bin Abdul Aziz (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “If the Ulama were alive, they would suffer the pains of fire when filling their stomachs with haraam. But they are dead, hence they wander around consuming fire.” Their hearts are harder than stone, hence their intransigence and the numerous infractions of the Shariah perpetrated by them. This is the meaning of them being ‘dead’ according to Hadhrat Umar Bin Abdul Aziz (Rahmatullah alayh).

With the evil riya of their jalsahs, these ulama are destroying the wonderful treasure of Ilm-e-Deen and the immense Thawaab promised for the correct observance of the rights of Ilm. Hadhrat Rabee’ Bin Khaisham (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “How can riya ever be permissible for an Aalim (when it is not permissible for even the worst jaahil). He knows that riya constrains him to impart knowledge for (the pleasure) of others besides Allah, and he knows that it deracinates amal (practise). How can they have pride with something which utterly destroys amal?”

But the inebriation with riya has totally blinded their spiritual eyes and blighted their intellect. Indulging in their merrymaking feasting and excreting, they block the spiritual channel by means of which there is the transcendental transmission of Anwaar constantly cascading from the Arsh of Allah Azza Wa Jal. These Anwaar seek abodes in which to settle. A heart darkened with mushtabah, haraam, futility and merrymaking can never be a repository for these Anwaar which bypass the heart putrefied by merrymaking, riya and the villainous moral consequences of this vile characteristic. Thus, as a warning for the merrymaking Ulama who indulge in Brahmin type feasting, Hadhrat Hasan Basri (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “It is evil for an Aalim to fill his stomach with even halaal food. What then is the frightening condition of the one who fills his stomach with haraam? The true piety of the Ulama is to abandon lust (shahwat).” 

The molvis participating in these ill-conceived jalsahs are the victims of lust (shahwat). It is shahwat which goads them on to innovating these merrymaking practices which have no origin in the Sunnah, and which diverts the hearts and minds from Allah Ta’ala despite the ostentatious display of ‘deeni’ talks full of sound and fury signifying nil. They make a mockery of Allah’s Name and the Deen by organizing their khuraafaat under Deeni guise.

It is nafsaani shahwat which has afflicted them with the disease of obsession with women, hence they go to great lengths to violate the Qur’aanic and Hadith prohibition of women emerging from their homes. Their shahwat demands the presence of the females who are lured out of their homes to gratify the satanic lusts of misguided molvis who pillage and plunder the Deen in the dastardly endeavour to achieve their villainous objectives.

Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mubaarak (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “Devouring mushtabah and haraam is today the dominating characteristic of the Ulama. They are the victims of the stomach and lust in which they are drowned. They have made their Ilm a trap with which they entrap (the people) of the dunya (for gratification of their desires and lusts).”

For the Ulama of shahwat, Hadhrat Hasan Basri (Rahmatullah alayh) has the following advice: “If a man acquires all knowledge and engrosses himself in ibaadat to the extent that he becomes as thin as a rake, but he does not investigate the food which he ingests, whether it is halaal or haraam, then by Allah his ibaadat is not accepted.”

What can be said about the molvis who destroy their souls in merrymaking jalsahs – who consume the haraam carrion chickens halaalized by the agents of Iblees – who lure women out of their houses in flagrant violation of Allah’s prohibition – who waste huge sums of Lillah funds for gluttonous feasting and unnecessary travelling and other concomitant expenses- who are the victims of riya and takabbur?

Criticizing these jalsahs, Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) said:

“The summary of these Shar’i obstacles is that when carefully viewed and evidenced by experience, the major reason for conducting these jalsahs is twofold; receiving donations and broadcasting one’s activities.

We can also describe this as the honour and prestige of the madrasah, which boils down to hubb-e-maal and hubb-e-jaah (love for money and love for fame) which have been prohibited in numerous Nusoos (Qur’aan and Hadith injunctions).

Although when money and fame are desired for the sake of Deen then this is not condemned, but it is debatable whether on such occasions (jalsahs) the Deen is the objective or the dunya. So, even though ta-weel is made (that is, defences are made to justify the jalsahs) and it is said to be for the Deen, however, Allah Ta’ala has made a yardstick for every intention whereby the validity or corruption of intention can be gauged.

Now on these occasions (of madrasah jalsahs), if one reflects, the sign of talab-dunya (seeking the world) is evident. Let us expand on this. If the Deen was the objective then anything contrary to the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala would not be adopted. But since such (haraam) things are opted for, it clearly shows that the objective is the dunya. By way of example some of these factors are enumerated hereunder.

1. In asking for donations the Rules of the Shariah are not observed. The Injunction of the Shariah is: “A man’s money is not lawful without his heartfelt consent”. In collecting funds, schemes are devised to apply pressure on the hearts of those addressed, be this pressure in the form of coercion, embarrassment or empathy. People on whom this pressure is applied are targeted. In front of the audience, needs of the madrasah are presented. It is insisted that they attend the jalsah. It is known for certainty that a rich man will fear insult and humiliation coming empty-handed. The madrasah authorities broadcast their expenses; the rich guest fears disgrace.

2. Riya (ostentation) being haraam is a Shar’i Hukm. In most cases in such functions the giver harbours riya in his heart. The cause of this riya is also sinful. (In other words, the jalsah is the occasion of this riya, hence the jalsah is sinful.)

3. The Ulama frequently go to the doors of the rich and engage in flattering them.

4. If they (the Ulama) get money which they understand not to be halaal, they will never refuse to accept the money.

5. They generally project the status of their madrasahs much higher than it actually is, either explicitly or by implication. This translates to falsehood and deception.

6. If someone questions something about the madrasah, and even if he is right, it is never accepted. On the contrary, they will attack the person and labour to refute the question, even though in their hearts they know that it is the truth. This is subversion of the Haqq.

7. If another madrasah is established nearby, then in spite of this new madrasah being in a good state they (the authorities of the older madrasah) will look at it (the new madrasah) as if it is a thorn tree and in their hearts they will wish for its demolition and termination, whereas it is something to be happy about that Deeni work is being carried out at several places. However, for fear of the new madrasah becoming famous and contributions increasing for the new madrasah and diminishing for their madrasah they are unhappy over this new madrasah.

8. They publicise their activities, praise themselves, give preference to their own madrasah, show off their work to be better and more intensive and for this they are at pains to increase the volume of their Ta’leem and introduce kitaabs which are beyond the capacity of the students to show the magnitude of the work being carried out, whether the students understand the work or not.

From the above signs, the first four are love for wealth not for the sake of the Deen and the last four are signs of love for fame not for the sake of the Deen. Due to the basis being corrupt the effects produced are just the same. ………..

The obligation of discarding something is not conditional to intentional evil. In fact, unintentional evil is sufficient. It is already accepted that many jalsahs, in fact all are plagued with the previously stated evils. It is also evident that to stop these is necessary as far as possible. It is prohibited (manhi anhu) to popularize such wrongs intentionally and unintentionally. In this scenario, if some muhtamim sahib conducts a jalsah with extreme care, then although he may not be directly involved in the wrongs, but there is no doubt that he is a cause for the spreading of the wrongs in other careless jalsahs.

In many issues the Fuqaha have strongly debarred some permissible acts simply to close the avenues (saddan lil baab) and to uproot corruption (hasman li maaddatil fasaad). In this regard the Muhaqqiqeen Ulama in this age debar the customary maulood, faatihah and urs gatherings, regardless of the organizer being cautious in I’tiqaad and Amal. The reason for this is that others who are careless will have justification. It will lead to these becoming widespread among irresponsible people. This rule applies equally and consistently to gatherings of da’wat and gatherings of the madaaris. After observation it suffices to reflect.

The benefits of these jalsahs are not disputed. However, when benefits and wrongs clash then preference is accorded to the effect of the wrongs, when the benefits are not categorized as essential in the Shariah. In what we are discussing it is obvious that there is no Shar’i Zaroorat. In fact, the acquisition of the benefit is not confined to this particular way. Helpers could be informed with a written report. Students could be awarded without any ceremony associated.

In so far as bayaans are concerned, firstly it is difficult to openly give naseehat to the audience of such gatherings. Consideration for ill feelings prevents that. Then this objective (that is, hidaayat and naseehat) can be fulfilled independently in good measure.” (End of Hadhrat Thaanvi’s Fatwa of Prohibition)

The motivation for doling out prizes and awards to students is pure riya and takabbur. Only morons fail to discern the haraam ostentation plastered with a thin veneer which serves only the shaitaaniyat of self-deception. The objective of the pursuit of Ilm-e-Deen and Hifz of the Qur’aan Majeed is nothing other than Ridha-e-Ilaahi (The Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala). This objective is the furthest from the hearts of the organizers of the stupid jalsahs, and even further from the minds of the misguided students who are embodiments of Akhlaaq-e-Razeelah. The madaaris in these days do not cater for Islaah of the Nafs. Both the Asaatizah and the Talaba are grounded in the vortex of the evil nafsaani attributes.

Most lamentably, the madaaris are today among the signs of Qiyaamah:

“Ilm will be imparted and acquired for purposes other than the Deen.” (Hadith)

“The dunya will be pursued with the amal of the Aakhirat.” (Hadith)

There is no doubt that the blessings of Friday include the blessings of remembrance of Allah ta`ala during its time. It has been related by Imam Muslim in a sound tradition that the Messenger of Allah may Allah bless him and grant him peace said:

“In it there is an hour in which the Muslim worshipper would not stand in Salat, asking Allah for anything except that He would give it to him.”

According to the consensus, this special hour is after the Asr prayer; both Abdullah bin Salam and Kab Ahbar quoted the same opinion. It is for this reason that many of the Sufis gather after asr prayer to recite their awraad and wazifas.

Imam As-Sahwrawardi may Allah be merciful to him said: “Whoever recites the Divine Name Allah by saying “YAA ALLAHU”one thousand times on Friday before the juma`a prayer, while in a state of purity and in complete clean clothing, Allah ta`ala will make easy for him all of his desires, even if he desires the entire world.

The special qualities of Friday is reciting the Divine Name AL-AWWAL (The First) is that it brings about reunion and reunification, because the traveler who persists in reciting this Name by saying: ‘Yaa Awwalu’, every Friday 1000 times will round up all his business affairs.”

The special quality of Friday is reciting the Divine Name: AL-BASEER (the All Seeing) is its effectiveness in bringing about success in one’s affairs, for whoever recites it by saying ‘Yaa Baseeru’ before the Friday juma` prayer 100 times, Allah will open for him his inner vision and make him successful in righteous words and actions.”

The Shehu said: “Whoever gives charity on Friday after `asr , Allah ta`ala will forgive him his sins and fulfill his supplications.”

The greatest of the adhkaar for Friday is sending much blessings and peace upon the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.

It is for this reason that the scholars and the realized ones are agreed about the merits of sending much blessings upon Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace on the day of Jumu`a, as it has been narrated by an-Nisaai’ on the authority of Aws ibn Aws that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said:

“Verily the most superior of your days is the day of Jumu`a, therefore send much blessings upon me during it; for your blessings are presented to me.”

Shaykh Abdullahi Dan Fodio, may Allah be merciful to him` said in his Diya’l-Qawaa’id:

“Whoever says one thousand times on the day of Jumu`a: ‘O Allah send blessings upon Muhammad the Unlettered Prophet’; will see his Lord during his sleep, or his Prophet or his place in Paradise. If he does not see either of these that particular night, then in the second week, the third week or the fifth week. However this vision is entirely contingent on the purity and sincerity of his intention, the presence of his heart accompanied with proper courtesy. ”

There is no doubt that the day of Jumu`a and its prayer is immense with Allah ta`ala with respect to the gathering together of the community in Divine emanations, unveilings and spiritual arrival. It is for this reason that it is called Jumu`a with the People of Allah, and Allah knows best

O Allah give us openings during this blessed day of Friday. O Allah I ask You for every good which Your knowledge encompasses in this world and the Next, and I seek refuge with You from every evil which Your knowledge encompasses in the this world and the Next. O Allah give us success in following the Sunna of Your prophet, Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, outwardly and inwardly, by his rank that he has with You.

ﻭَﻟَﻨَﺒْﻠُﻮَﻥَّﻛُﻢ ﺑِﺸَﻲﺀٍ ﻣِّﻦَ ﺍﻟﺨَﻮْﻑِ ﻭَﺍﻟﺠُﻮﻉِ ﻭَﻧَﻘْﺺٍ ﻣِّﻦَ ﺍﻷَﻣْﻮَﺍﻝِ ﻭَﺍﻷَﻧْﻔُﺲِ ﻭَﺍﻟﺜَّﻤَﺮَﺍﺕِ، ﻭَﺑَﺸِّﺮِ ﺍﻟﺼَّﺎﺑِﺮِﻳﻦَ . ﺍَﻟَّﺬِﻳﻦَ ﺍِﺫَﺍ ﺍَﺻَﺎﺑَﺘْﻬُﻢ ﻣُّﺼِﻴﺒَﺔٌ ﻗَﺎﻟُﻮﺍْ ﺍِﻧَّﺎ ﻟِﻠَّﻪِ ﻭَﺍِﻧَّﺎ ﺍِﻟَﻴْﻪِ ﺭَﺍﺟِﻌُﻮﻥَ . ﺃُﻭﻟَﺎﺋِﻚَ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻬِﻢ ﺻَﻠَﻮَﺍﺕٌ ﻣِﻦ ﺭَﺑِّﻬِﻢ ﻭَﺭَﺣْﻤَﺔٌ ﻭَ ﺃُﻭﻟَﺎﺋِﻚَ ﻫُﻢُ ﺍﻟﻤُﻬْﺘَﺪُﻭﻥَ .”

“We will most certainly try you with something of fear, hunger, the loss of property, lives and fruits. Give to those who are patient good news. Who when a misfortune befalls them, they say, ‘Surely we belong to Allah and to Him is our final return. They are those upon whom are the blessings and mercy from their Lord. They are those who are guided’.” [2:156-158]

Our African ancestor Shaykh Abdullahi Dan Fodio said about thisverse in his Diya ‘t-Ta’weel, “We will most certainly try you with something of fear,’ i.e. from your enemies, ‘hunger,’ from famine or from fasting, ‘the loss of property, by means of zakaat and destruction, ‘lives,’ by means of fighting, death, sickness, decrepitude and old age, ‘and fruits’, by means of devastation.
This verse means, ‘We will make you experience what was mentioned in order to manifest which among you are obedient and which are disobedient. Or in order to manifest whether you will be patient or not.’ . . . Every type of adversity afflicts mankind. Allah ta`ala informs mankind of the occurrence of affliction and hardship before it actually happens in order that they can become accustomed to it.

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said, ‘Whenever a child of servant dies Allah ta`ala says to the Angels, ‘Have you seized one of the fruits of my servant?’ They say: ‘Yes.’ Then Allah ta`ala says; ‘What is my servant saying?’ (While He knows) They say: ‘He praises You and resorts to You.’ Then Allah subh’haanahu says: ‘Build for him a house on Paradise and name it the House of Praise’.”
The meaning of His words: ‘Give to those who are patient,’ against these afflictions and hardships of Paradise. They are those ‘who when a misfortune befalls them,’ i.e. hardship,
The meaning of His words: ‘they say, ‘Surely we belong to Allah,’ i.e. as His possessions and slaves. He does with us what He wills, which is the nature of property.

The meaning of His words:‘And to Him is our final return,’ in the Hereafter where we will be rewarded for our patience. It is mentioned in the tradition, ‘Whoever resorts to Allah during affliction, Allah will reward for it and recompense it with good.’

In another tradition the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said, ‘Every disturbance which effects a believer is an affliction.’

Resorting to Allah is not by one’s tongue, rather true appeal to Allah takes place in the inner heart. He does this by picturing what He has created for him when resorting to his Lord and remembers the many blessings which He has given him.

The meaning of His words: ‘They are those upon whom are the blessings’, of forgiveness and compassion after compassion.

The meaning of His words: ‘And mercy from their Lord,’ i.e. blessings from their Lord.

The meaning of His words: ‘They are those who are guided’, i.e. to what is correct as long as they surrender to the commands of Allah.

Umar ibn ‘l-Khataab, may Allah be pleased with him said, ‘These are the best two virtues with the best grandeur, that is: prayer, compassion and then guidance’.”

Allah ta`ala also says:

ﻭَﺑَﺸِّﺮِ ﺍﻟﻤُﺨْﺒِﺘِﻴﻦَ، ﺍَﻟَّﺬِﻳﻦَ ﺍِﺫَﺍ ﺫُﻛِﺮَ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻭَﺟِﻠَﺖْ ﻗُﻠُﻮﺑُﻬُﻢ ﻭَﺍﻟﺼَّﺎﺑِﺮِﻳﻦَ ﻋَﻠَﻰ ﻣَﺎ ﺍَﺻَﺎﺑَﻬُﻢْ ﻭَﺍﻟﻤُﻘِﻴﻤِﻴﻦ ﺍﻟﺼَّﻠَﻮﺓِ، ﻭَﻣِﻤَّﺎ ﺭَﺯَﻗْﻨَﻬُﻢ ﻳُﻨْﻔِﻘُﻮﻥَ .”

“Give good news to the humble, those whose heart tremble when Allah is mentioned, and those who are patient under that which afflicts them, and those who keep up prayer, and spend out of what We have given them.” [22:34-35]

Again Shaykh Abdullahi Dan Fodio said about this verse in his Diya ‘t-Ta’weel,

“Give good news to the humble’, those who are obedient,who show humility and are sincere. The term humble here means a person who possesses tranquility with what Allah ta`ala has commanded.

The meaning of His words: ‘Those who when Allah is mentioned their hearts tremble,’ i.e. they have tremendous fear of Allah alone and awe due to the dawning of the beams of His majesty upon them.

The meaning of His words: ‘And those who are patient under that which afflicts them’, from hardships and tribulations.

The meaning of His words: ‘And those who keep up prayer,’ during their proper times.

The meaning of His words: ‘And spend out of what We have given them’, in the ways of righteousness.”

Allah ta`ala also says:

ﻣَﺎ ﺃَﺻَﺎﺏَ ﻣِﻦْ ﻣُﺼِﻴﺒَﺔٍ ﻓِﻲ ﺍﻷَﺭْﺽِ ﻭَﻻَ ﻓِﻲ ﺃَﻧْﻔُﺴِﻜُﻢْ ﺇِﻟَّﺎ ﻓِﻲ ﻛِﺘَﺎﺏٍ ﻣِﻦْ ﻗَﺒْﻞِ ﺃَﻥْ ﻧَﺒْﺮَﺃَﻫَﺎ . ﺇِﻥَّ ﺫَﻟِﻚَ ﻋَﻠَﻰ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪِ ﻳَﺴِﻴﺮٌ، ﻟِﻜَﻴْﻼ ﺗَﺄْﺳَﻮْﺍ ﻋَﻠَﻰ ﻣَﺎ ﻓَﺎﺗَﻜُﻢْ ﻭَﻻَ ﺗَﻔْﺮَﺣُﻮﺍ ﺑِﻤَﺎ ﺀَﺍﺗَﺎﻛُﻢ . ﻭَﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻻَ ﻳُﺤِﺐُّ ﻛُﻞَّ ﻣُﺨْﺘَﺎﻝٍ ﻓَﺨُﻮﺭٍ

“No tribulation afflicts in the earth nor in yourselves except it is in a Book before We originate it. This is easy for Allah. So that you may not grieve over what has missed you nor be overly happy with is given you. Truly Allah does not love every arrogant braggart.” [57:22-23]

Again Shaykh Abdullahi Dan Fodio said about this verse in his Diya ‘t-Ta’weel,

“No tribulation afflicts in the earth’, from drought, disease and earthquakes. ‘Nor in yourselves’, like sickness, injurious qualities, the death and loss of parents.

The meaning of His words: ‘Except it is in a Book’, i.e. except that it is written in the Guarded Tablet well established in the knowledge of Allah.

The meaning of His words: ‘Before We originate it’, i.e. We create it. The pronoun ‘it’ refers to the earth, the affliction or the selves.

The first is more correct because it has been related by Imam Muslim that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said, ‘Verily Allah recorded what was to be decreed for the entire creation fifty-thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth. And He throne was on the waters.’

The meaning of His words: ‘This’, i.e. it being well established in the Book.

The meaning of His words: ‘Is easy for Allah’, due to the fact that He is independent and not affected by custom and time.

Then Allah ta`ala gives an indication of the wisdom of this by His words, ‘ So that you may not grieve’, i.e. be saddened with a sadness which prevents you from surrendering to the commands of Allah ta`ala.

The meaning of His words: ‘Over what has missed you’, from the blessings of this world’s life. For the one who knows that whatever afflicts him from hardships has actually been decreed for him, then his sadness will not be intense.

This is because he will have accustomed himself to accepting what has been decreed.

The meaning of His words: ‘Nor be overly happy’, i.e. not be happy with vanity, rather be happy with gratitude to Allah for His blessings.

The meaning of His words: ‘With is given you’, i.e. with what has come to you.

The meaning of His words: ‘Truly Allah does not love every arrogant braggart’, who is proud for what has been given him over the people.

It has been related on the authority of Ibn Abaas that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said:

” ﻣَﻦ ﺃَﺻَﺎﺑَﺘْﻪُ ﻣُﺼِﻴﺒَﺔٌ ﻓَﻠْﻴَﺠْﻌَﻠْﻬَﺎ ﺻَﺒْﺮﺍً، ﻭَﻣَﻦ ﺃَﺻَﺎﺑُﻪُ ﺧَﻴﺮٌ ﻓَﻠْﻴَﺠْﻌَﻠْﻪُ ﺷُﻜْﺮًﺍ .”

“Whoever is afflicted with an adversity then it should make him patient. Whoever is afflicted with good then it should make him grateful.”

It is related in the Saheeh of Imam Muslim that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said:

” ﻣَﺎ ﻳَﺼِﻴﺐُ ﺍﻟﻤُﺴْﻠِﻢَ ﻣِﻦ ﻭَﺻَﺐٍ ﻭَﻻَ ﻧَﺼَﺐٍ ﻭَﻻَ ﺳَﻘَﻢٍ ﻭَﻻَ ﺣَﺰْﻥٍ ﺣَﺘَّﻰ ﺍﻟﻬَﻢَّ ﻳَﻬَﻤَﻪُ ﺇِﻟَّﺎ ﻛُﻔِّﺮَ ﺑِﻪِ ﻣِﻦ ﺳَﻴﺌَﺎﺗِﻪِ .”

“There is not an affliction which afflicts a Muslim from illness, hardship, poverty, grief and even an anxiety which worries him except that it becomes an atonement for his evil errors.”

Therefore, hold strong to the station of patience (as-sabr) because it is the source of nearness to Allah and the fastest means to draw down Allah’s divine love and protection.
Success is with Allah
