DAARUSH SHAITAAN IBLEES SERVICE CENTRE
ITS SHAITAANI SOCCER TOURNAMENT
Question: An entity in Durban calling itself ‘Darul Ihsan Islamic Services Centre has organized a soccer tournament at a venue called Al-Falah College. What is really galling is that this entity stipulates that an Alim or an Imam or a Madrasah teacher should accompany the soccer teams. I wish to emphasize that I am not a learned person. I am an ordinary person who may even be labelled a faaasiq. Nevertheless, faasiq I may be, but the evil I see nowadays being peddled in the name of Islam by Ulama and Islamic organizations, makes me cringe with revulsion. Please comment on this soccer tournament which Darul Ihsan Centre is organizing. Is there any scope in Islam for such tournament?
The entity which you say is called ‘Darul Ihsan’ is in reality Darush Shaitaan (The Abode of Shaitaan), which organizes and promotes services instructed by Iblees. The times in which we live currently have been predicted by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as being among the Signs of Qiyaamah. In such times in close proximity to Qiyaamah, Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“The worse of the people under the canopy of the sky will be the Ulama. From these (shayateen ‘ulama’ in human form) will emerge fitnah (such as the soccer fitnah of Darush Shaitaan). The fitnah will rebound on them (and ultimately destroy them.”
Although the villainy and haraam perpetrated by the frauds masquerading as ‘ulama’ are lamentable, it must be expected. Rasulullah’s predictions have to materialize. The evil kuffaar sport which Darush Shaitaan is organizing in the name of Islam is simply part of the fitnah which will overwhelm Muslims like an “intensely dark night” as mentioned by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
Muslims of healthy Imaan, even if they happen to be faasiqs, do not require any proofs for understanding that Darush Shaitaan with its kuffaar soccer tournament is organizing pure shaitaaniyat and haraam. The worse aspect of its shaitaaniyat is that this evil is presented as an ‘Islamic service’. This presentation too testifies to the truth of Rasulullah’s Nubuwwat. One of the proofs of Nubuwwat is truthful predictions. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said about these times of corruption and fitnah when the ulama-e-soo’ and munaafiq ‘ulama’ will abound:
“The dunya will be pursued with the amal of the Aakhirat.”
Under guise of the Deen and in the name of Islam will these shayaateen in human form such as the Devils of Darush Shaitaan, promote their evil wares for worldly and nafsaani objectives. Those who promote kuffaar sport in the name of Islam cannever be Ulama. They are nothing but Rubbish – Ghutha who pose as ‘scholars’. They are the scholars and agents of the Devil-in-Chief.
An Aalim is supposed to be a Representative of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). A cardboard molvi who accompanies a haraam soccer team is not an Aalim. He is an agent of Iblees. An Aalim is a man of Ilm who is imbued with Taqwa and the Fear of Allah Ta’ala. Thus, the Qur’aan Majeed says about the Ulama:
“Verily, of Allah’s servants only the Ulama fear Him.”
The Rubbish clique of Darush Shaitaan who is organizaing this shaitaani soccer event is rabidly insane in its inordinate craving for aggrandizement, publicity and to gain followers, hence it has organized this nafsaani, shaitaani, kuffaar sport event. The evil so-called ulama who are the organizers of this event of fisq and fujoor have been described by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in the following Hadith:
“Soon shall there be in my Ummah such people in whom will pervade these carnal lusts just as rabies afflicts a person. Every nerve and every joint (of this insane person) are saturated with it (the rabies).”
Nafsaaniyat and shaitaaniyat have blighted the intelligence of these evil molvis. Their very Imaan is near to extinction for they halaalize what Allah Ta’ala has made haraam. Whereas the Fardh function of the Ulama is Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar, the Darush Shaitaan agents of Iblees masquerading as Ulama come within the scope of the Qur’aamic aayat: “The male munaafiqs (munaafiqoon) and the female munaafiqs (munaafiqaat) are from one another. They command evil and prohibit virtue….” The shayaateen of Darush Shaitaan also fit snugly within the scope of the Qur’aanic aayaat:
“The kuffaar of Bani Israaeel have been cursed on the tongues of Daawood and Isaa Ibn Maryam. This is because they (flagrantly) sinned and used to transgress (the Shariah). They would not prohibit the evil which they perpetrated. Indeed, vile is that which they used to perpetrate. You will see many of them (the ulama-e-soo’) befriending the kuffaar. Indeed, evil is that which they have sent ahead for themselves. Allah’s Wrath is on them, and in the Punishment (of Jahannam) will they dwell forever.”
Instead of guiding the morally corrupt youth of the community towards the Deen, the evil molvis of Darush Shaitaan lure them towards Jahannum with haraam kuffaar sport in the name of Islam thereby solidifying the moral corruption in which the youth are wallowing. The immorality in which Muslim youths are trapped cannever be cured with haraam. The attempt to reform with haraam is like washing garments with urine. Instead of gaining tahaarat, the najaasat of the garment intensifies.
Inclining to the ways and methods of the kuffaar is never the solution for any ills of Muslims. The solution for the moral corruption in which the youth and the adults of the Ummah are wallowing is confined to pure Deeni teaching in the way we have acquired from the Salf-e-Saaliheen. It should also be understood that the youth of the community can no longer be reformed as long as their moral life is being destroyed with the active connivance of their parents and teachers. Immoral secular schools, television, and cell phones with all the emphasis on pornography and sexual perversion render all attempts of reformation futile. There is simply no hope for extricating the youth from their headlong plunge into drugs and pornography. Parents and the ulama-e-soo’ such as the shayaateen of Darush Shaitaan are the prime criminals who are responsible for the destruction of the morals of Muslim youth. Kuffaar sport is not the solution. On the contrary, it only consolidates the diseases of fisq and fujoor which are afflicting the community – its youth as well as its adults.
Ulama remain Ulama as long as they discharge the obligation of Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar. When the Ulama abstain from this Fardh obligation, they become divided into two classes of Ulama-e-Soo’: (1) Active ulama-e-soo’ such as the Devils of Darush Shaitaan who actively and flagrantly without a vestige of haya trample on Islam with their villainy. (2) Passive Ulama-e-Soo’ who weld their lips and their tongue to provide silent support for baatil. This group has been appellated by Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as the “Dumb Devils”.
