Please comment on the new concept in Durban – the khatam of Bukhaari Shareef and broadcasting of the dua. This function is being promoted for all and sundry. Is there merit and goodness in this? I have heard that even Darul Uloom Deoband does not have Bukhaari khatam jalsahs. What prompts the Durban ulama to introduce this practice which obviously has no Sunnah basis?


They are starting a new bid’ah whilst the Ummah is up in flames. They have nothing better and constructive to do, hence they are initiating another bid’ah which will ultimately become another merrymaking party such as the mass i’tikaaf parties and the plethora of jalsahs.

What has happened to the intelligence of the Ulama? The community wallows in fisq, fujoor and bid’ah, but they are silent on these issues which are destroying the Ummah and inviting Allah’s universal Athaab. There are so many pressing and urgent issues ruining and affecting the community, yet these molvis deem it appropriate to squander time, effort and money to revive practices and innovate practices which have no truck with the Sunnah.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that for reviving a Sunnah the reward is the reward of a 100 martyrs. There are numerous Sunnah acts which Muslims have extinguished and murdered. The molvis are acquitting themselves like ‘dumb devils’ regarding the eradicated Sunnah practices. Shaitaan has now adorned for them a practice which has no relationship with the Sunnah – which has no significance relative to the significance of reviving the Sunnah.

The only basis the deviates are presenting for this new bid’ah in the making is that blessings descend when Hadith is recited. There is no contention and no denial of this. The issue is the new bid’ah in the making, and in the current context of the Ummah hovering on the brink of Jahannam, initiating this new practice is shockingly lamentable. They are following in the footsteps for the Barelwi bid’atis whose salient feature is bid’ah and grave-worship. Now the so-called ‘deobandis’ are taking their guidance from the Barelwi bid’atis. But innovation has become a common denominator between the deobandi molvis of this era and the Barelwi Bid’atis.

Shaitaan is a cunning ustaadh. He lures the molvis by presenting practices of seniors. This is the seed of bid’ah. Shaitaan is laying his snare to entrap the molvis and further deviate the community from Siraatul Mustaqeem. They just lack the intelligence of applying their minds to the Sunnah and the deplorable moral state of the Ummah.

The Sunnah is not adequate for the molvis of today. The Sunnah is devoid of frills and fancies. It seemingly does not attract crowds. There is no acclaim for the molvis and no aggrandizement in pure practices of Ibaadat and observance of the Sunnah in the way the Sahaabah observed, for this is anathema to the nafs. It is Waajib to revive the Sunnah. There is no merit in reviving personal practices of buzrugs. May Allah Ta’ala have mercy on this deviated, fallen Ummah. But the Sunnah holds no attraction for them because it comes without merrymaking parties and functions where the molvis can express themselves and gain some cheap, stupid publicity to the detriment of their Aakhirat.

Hubb dunya and Hubb Jaah have destroyed the Ulama. May Allah Ta’ala guide and protect us from the evils of the nafs and the snares of shaitaan.
