TRASH IN THE MUSAAJID SOLD IN THE NAME OF ISLAM
Regarding real TRASH and deceptive so-called ‘Islamic’ papers/magazines, a Concerned Brother writes:
Respected Mufti Saheb
Have you perused the October 2015 publication of the above so called "Islamic" magazine that is distributed in Masajids on a Friday? The Editor is someone who calls himself Masood Ahmed.
The magazine comprises 40 pages of advertisements and articles of 'interest' to the Muslim Ummah. When analyzed 34 pages contain advertisements and 6 pages of sheer drivel all in the name of Islam. It includes a section titled "The Panchaat Column".
The book contains articles which are of little or no Islamic value penned by unknown 'ghost' writers. In my opinion the publication should be assigned to the trash heap and banned from Masajids.
It is obvious that the author is enriching himself from the advertisements but doing so in the guise of an Islamic publication.
(End of letter)
The erstwhile partner of the chap called Masood Ahmed, is one Molvi Shaheen Ismail who prints and sells an almost identical scrap, trash paper which he dubs, ISLAM –The Way of Life. The only difference is that this Molvi prints his Al-Trash in tabloid size, whilst Mr. Masood prints his Al-Rubbish in A4 size.
Both these characters are birds of a feather. The common denominator is that both have succeeded to bamboozle the hoard of stupid, moron advertisers who fork out tens of thousands of rands for adverts in scrap papers which the vast majority of Musallis ignore. Most of these two papers, i.e. Al-TRASH and Al-RUBBISH which defile and clutter the Musaajid are thrown away.
These scrap papers are almost devoid of Islamic content. Just as Masood’s magazine is predominantly a haraam advertising stunt paper, so too is the Molvi’s tabloid. The Molvi’s August 2015 issue of Al-TRASH consist of 24 pages. A maximum of four and half pages consists of Deeni content which has been pirated from here and there. Almost 20 pages of this junk 24 paged paper consist of HARAAM adverts.
Besides the stupid advertisers, everyone else can see and understand that these two chaps (Masood and Shaheen, the molvi) are treacherous mercenaries. They are treacherous because they pirate the name of Islam. In the name of Islam they go around bamboozling moron traders, begging them and licking them to cough up large sums of money to insert nonsensical adverts in nonsensical papers which do nothing to promote the sales of the moron traders. These mercenaries simply enrich themselves in a haraam way, and dump their trash in the Musaajid. The stupid trustees of the Musaajid, unable to utilize their brains, consent to the dumping which defiles the holy precincts of the Musaajid.
It is not permissible to use the Musaajid for earning money, especially when the method of earning is so despicable as the method employed by these two unscrupulous mercenaries who sell the name of Islam for the miserable gain of the dunya. For their rands, they prostitute Islam.
Trustees of the Musaajid and the Imaams should institute measures to ban these haraam papers. This ban should cover all other papers and magazines which are of a commercial and kufr type. Papers such as Al-Qalam are brazenly KUFR. The Musjid authorities will also suffer the consequences of the evil of these haraam papers which are utulizing the Musaajid for their pecuniary and other gains.
The Masood and Molvi Shaheen characters were in the beginning partners in the Trash paper game. Greed caused them to break. Now each one has his own paper, namely, Al-TRASH and Al-RUBBISH. These two scrap, trash and rubbish papers are classical examples of pursuing the dunya with the Deen mentioned in the Ahaadith. In one Hadith it is mentioned, as a Sign of Qiyaamah:
“The dunya (i.e. the objectives of the world) will be pursued with the amal of the Aakhirah.”
These two trash papers are using Islam and the Musjid (which are entities of the Aakhirah) for their worldly objectives, namely, the boodle. In so doing they are bootleggers of the most contemptible kind.
TRUSTEES AND IMAAMS OF THE MUSAAJID ARE COMPLICIT IN PROMOTING BAATIL AND HARAAM BY PERMITTING THE DISTRIBUTION OF TRASH AND KUFR PAPERS AT THE MUSAAJID. THEY ARE FAILING IN THEIR DUTY TO SAFEGUARDING THE SANCTITY OF THE MUSAAJID. THEY AID AND ABET IN SIN AND TRANSGRESSION BY ALLOWING THE MUSAAJID PLATFORMS TO BE MISUSED FOR THE MONETARY DESIGNS AND THE KUFR OBJECTIVES OF MERCENARIES AND SCOUNDRELS.
