BECOMING A PILOT?

E-mail Print PDF

A PROFESSION OF ZINA, FISQ AND FUJOOR

Question

I am an ex-pilot. Allah Ta’ala has saved me from the calamity of this profession. In response to a question, Madrasah Ta’leemuddeen of Isipingo Beach issued the fatwa of permissibility. I fail to understand how the profession of a commercial pilot can be permissible when it is saddled with multiple evils and sins. Please view these factors and let me know if the fatwa is correct or have I misunderstood something. I have queried the fatwa, but even after many months no response has been forthcoming from the Mufti Sahib. 

In my letter to the Mufti sahib, I explained as follows:

As a pilot for a commercial airline, the duties amongst others are as follows:

1. A pilot, according to his company policy has to transport alcohol that is consumed on the flight. My concern is the following hadeeth:

Abu Dawood (3674) and Ibn Maajah (3380) narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah has cursed alcohol, the one who drinks it, the one who pours it, the one who sells it, the one who buys it, the one who squeezes (the grapes etc.), the one for whom it is squeezed, the one who carries it and the one to whom it is carried.”

Is it a sin or not to transport the alcohol in the work that the Muslim chooses for himself as his career?

“WHAT! DO YOU EXCHANGE THE INFERIOR FOR THAT WHICH IS SUPERIOR?” –QUR’AAN

Question

A grandfather who is an Aalim, is prepared to teach his grandchildren Knowledge of the Deen (Urdu and Arabic), but his son (the children’s father) who is a Molvi focuses more on secular education, thus not allowing his father to teach his children. Please comment in the light of the Shariah.

==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==

ANSWER

The Shariah comments on this issue from several angles. Firstly, is the status of the father and the obedience which the son owes him. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said in this regard:

“The pleasure of Allah is in the pleasure of the father, and the displeasure of Allah is in the displeasure of the father.”

FOREIGN IMAAMS, MUATH-THINS AND LOCAL MOLVIS

A Brother’s lament is reproduced here verbatim:

Assalaamooalaikoom Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuhu.

The local Imaams choose to employ Imaams/ Maulanas from the foregoing continents because they can be easily oppressed and  instil fear on those that do not have working visas etc. The tarbiyath of an immigrant is largely humble and these local Molvis thrive on that.They drive them to the brink of depression. They basically use them. The Jamiats are quite useless/toothless. To put it succinctly _ the Jamiats, aid and abets the transgressions of the Molvis.

TABLIGH JAMAAT QUERIES

Q. Molana Saad has mentioned that those who leave Banglawali Masjid are murtads. This is a direct attack on Hazarat Molana Ebrahim Dewla Saheb who is Molana Saad’s Ustaad, and upon Molana Ahmed Laat. These two elders had left as they disagreed with Molana Saad. Is Molana Saad’s verdict correct regarding them?

A. If what you say is correct, then Molvi Sa’d is guilty of a great crime. He should then fear the charge of irtidaad rebounding on himself. It is utterly disgusting to brand these seniors ‘murtad’ merely because they left Nizaamiddin.

O People! At the time of death, man will depart with three regrets:

(1) Unaccomplished hopes regarding accumulation of wealth.

(2) Unfulfilled dreams and desires.

(3) Preparations for the life beyond the grave had not been made.”
