BIRTHDAY PARTIES AND THE AGENTS OF IBLEES

 

QUESTION

A birthday party was organised for one Yusuf Kajee, a controversial businessman. It was held at the Coastlands Convention Centre in Umhlanga on February 3.

According to the news, this was a "surprise birthday". If this was a surprise birthday, it would mean that members of Yusuf Kajee's family or friends arranged it. If they arranged it as a surprise party, they probably contacted the alim to ask him to render an opening dua which he agreed to - hence, his name appears on the invitation.

Is i permissible for an alim to render an opening dua  at a birthday party of a man who is clearly a faasiq in terms of the Shariah? Besides this alim who  opened the party with Allah’s Name, there were several other ulama present at the birthday party. Please comment on this event. The presence of the ulama  is sending  the message of  permissibility of birthday parties, photography and other haraam acts  which  are associated with these types of functions. The ulama in Natal are  mute and silent.

There is a book titled "The Presidents Keepers: Those Keeping Zuma in Power and Out of Prison" by an individual named Jacques Pauw. In this book, the author mentions how Yusuf Kajee stole money from another individual to open up his cigarette factory in Pietermaritzburg. Despite all this, certain ulama still respect him and look up to him. They respect him to such an extent  that Madrassah Tarteelul Quran even sends huffaadh every year to perform taraweeh at the Jamaat Khana situated at his cigarette factory.

What does our Shariah say on this matter?

 

ANSWER

What the Shariah says, is known to every Muslim even to ignoramuses provided their Imaan is still intact. The shaitaani characters whom you have described as ‘alim’ and ‘ulama’ – those who had graced this haraam devilish merrymaking party with their evil presence are Agents of Iblees. They are not Ulama. They are juhala of the worse kind. In fact, the chap who recited the dua to open the immoral haraam birthday party, whom you called an ‘alim’, is in all probability a genuine munaafiq masquerading as a Muslim. It is not possible for even a stupid molvi to commit blatant kufr by so brazenly reciting a dua when consuming shaitaan’s faeces at an accursed party.

The Ulama of the Jamiat and the Darul Ulooms in the Natal area who are fully aware of all the haraam, fisq, fujoor and kufr which were perpetrated at shaitaan’s party, but who elected for silence thereby refraining from criticizing their  munaafiq, faasiq and faajir  members who were present, are in the words of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ‘DUMB DEVILS’. About these ‘ulama’ who even surpass the Ulama of Bani-Israaeel in the science of Kitmaanul Haqq (Concealing the Truth) and the science of Talbeesul Haq bil Baatil (Confusing the truth with falsehood), Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “He who remains silent about the Haqq (i.e. when the Haqq is assaulted or concealed or confused) is a shaitaan akhras (a dumb devil).”

Warning and reprimanding these Dumb Devils, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Do not confuse the Haqq with baatil and (do not) conceal the Haqq whilst you are aware.”

Worse than the faasiq/faajir for whom the haraam shaitaani birthday party was organized are these crank, bogus shaitaani molvis who masquerade as ulama. They brazenly commit kufr by reciting the Qur’aan and invoking the Name of Allah Ta’ala at a haraam function dedicated to the memory of Iblees, La-een, Mardood.

The molvi who had rendered the opening dua to mark the opening of the haraam shaitaani party has lost his Imaan. Assuming that he is not a munaafiq, but merely a jaahil, then the act of kufr has rendered him a kaafir. Salaat behind this devilish character is not valid. May Allah Ta’ala save the Ummah from the tentacles of these Agents of Iblees masquerading as ulama.

In this age, the molvis and sheikhs by far and large, have become the fearful Signs of Qiyaamah. These types of ulama-e-soo’ have been predicted by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

Cops, politicians and KZN elite crack the nod to tycoon's birthday bash

A who's who of KZN's elite were on the controversial businessman's guest list

13 February 2018 - 06:20BY GRAEME HOSKEN

 

Senior officers, corruption-busting cops and even the suspected KZN police commissioner cracked invites to the lavish 50th birthday party of cigarette manufacturing tycoon Yusuf Kajee.

The businessman, who is currently under investigation by SARS and the Hawks for alleged tax-related violations and money-laundering and corruption charges, had his party at the Coastlands Convention Centre in Umhlanga on February 3.

The bash saw crime intelligence agents, police station commanders, alleged mafioso, lawyers, businessmen and politicians wined and dined.

In an e-mail, Kajee — who owns Amalgamated Tobacco Manufacturing — describes the organisers and those on his “surprise birthday” guest list as “esteemed friends and colleagues”.

The guests at table nine were perhaps the most intriguing. The seats were reserved for eight police officers, including suspended KwaZulu-Natal provincial police commissioner Major-General Mmamonnye Ngobeni and her husband, Major-General Lucas Ngobeni.
