OBSERVE THE LIMITS OF THE SHARIAH AND GUARD YOUR IMAAN
CONDOLENCE AND THE SHARIAH
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Make haste with A’maal (Virtuous Deeds) before (you are overtaken by) such a fitnah which will be like a portion of an intensely dark night. A man will be a Mu’min in the morning, and a kaafir in the evening. He will sell his Deen for provisions of the world.”
The community is passing through a phase of intensely dark fitnah which Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described as “a portion of an intensely dark night”. The fitnah will be so much convoluted and blended with deception that the masses and even the scholars, especially the ‘scholars for dollars’, will be unable to distinguish between Haqq and Baatil – Truth and Falsehood. The falsehood of even kufr will be portrayed as the Haqq of the Deen.
The degree of the villainy of the fitnah will be so confusing that people will be Mu’min in the morning, and kaafir in the evening. Their state will alternate between kufr and Imaan. They will plunge into the mire of kufr without even realizing it. This fitnah will not be any mischief or strife initiated by non-Muslims. It will be fitnah of Muslims themselves, and worst of all, it will be such fitnah which will be concocted by those who are supposed to be the Ulama. This fitnah will be the making of the Ulama-e-Soo’ who will sell their Imaan for worldly and nafsaani objectives. About this fitnah of the Ulama-e-Soo’ – the scholars for dollars – Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“There will dawn an age over the people when the worst under the canopy of the sky will be their ulama. From the ulama will emerge Fitnah, and the fitnah will rebound on them.”
It is this ulama-created fitnah which has cast the Muslim community into confusion. It is this ulama-fabricated fitnah – fabricated for the gains of the dunya and nafs – that has created a scenario in which Muslims vacillate between Imaan and kufr. Whilst the ordinary ignorant Muslims in the community are suspended between Imaan and kufr in which they alternate due to uncertainty, the kufr of the ulama-e-soo’ is confirmed. The Hadith mentioned above, applies to the ignorant and the unwary who are stagnated in trepidation. But the kufr of the kufr-manufacturers, namely, the ulama-e-soo, is confirmed. They manipulate the Deen, spinning their narratives of kufr which they attempt to conceal with a ‘deeni’ veneer.
On this occasion of the passing away of Mr.Nelson Mandela, the ulama-e-soo’ and some other modernist juhala are causing great Imaani havoc by flagrantly transgressing the limits of the Shariah in the act of condolence. They have descended into the dregs of kufr with their eulogies. Some of those who are guilty of the eulogies of kufr are Reverend Abraham Bham of the NNB Jamiat, Darush Shaitaan, the MJC, the Media Network and the Temple of Quds. This last body of miscreants has exceeded all bounds of kufr.
The Shariah grants permission for only condolences, not for obituaries and eulogies. While it is permissible to condole with the bereaved family, composing eulogies is haraam. Making dua is haraam. Presenting funeral flowers is haraam. Participating in funeral and burial services is haraam. It is only permissible to send condolence to the bereaved family – condolence minus any eulogy. Any other act pertaining to funeral and burial service besides condolence, is haraam. This is the limit of the Shariah. Those who transgress the limits of the Shariah, are warned in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“These are the prescribed limits of Allah. Whoever transgresses the limits of Allah, verily he has oppressed his soul.”
“Remember ME (ALLAH), and I shall remember you. Be grateful Unto Me and do not commit kufr. O People of Imaan! Seek aid (from Allah) with Sabr and Salaat. Verily Allah is with the Saabireen.”
“Beware of such a punishment which will not be confined to only the Transgressors.” (It will overwhelm even the pious who associate and socialize with the transgressors).
SALAAM ON THOSE WHO FOLLOW HIDAAYAT.
