A LESSON – A NASEEHAT FOR THE DOZENS OF MOLVIS AT THE MOCK ‘ISTISQA’
Recently at the mock ‘istisqa’ held in Lenasia, the proceedings were being videoed despite the event being a Salaatul Istisqa’ according to the organizers. Dozens of molvis acquitted themselves like ‘dumb devils’ with their silence. The imam, his cronies and the NNB Jamiat clique molvis who were present condoned and promoted the Kabeerah sin of pictography with their consent and silence.
The following article published by Daarul Uloom Zakariyya in their newsletter, should be adequate lesson and salubrious for the drove of “Dumb Devils” who had directly aided in the haraam shenanigans of the NNB Jamiat of Fordsburg.

In all these things there is one thing we must stress once again. It is this when any prohibited impermissible thing is seen one should dislike it and consider it bad. One should feel sorrow at its appearance. Such evil should be intensely resented. This is that which in the first Hadeeth quoted has been called the lowest grade of Imaan.
There is a Hadeeth which says that Allah commanded Jibreel (Alayhis Salaam) to destroy a certain town and its people. Jibreel (Alayhis Salaam) said: “O Allah, in that town there is such-and-such a devout servant of yours, who has never ever disobeyed you.”
Allah said: “Destroy that town in spite of him because never once did a wrinkle appear on his face on account of (the displeasure at the sins committed against Me.” (Mishkat)
In other words, he has continued to look on while my laws were disobeyed and never once showed any dislike and resentment.
In another Hadeeth Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Whosoever joins in the doing of an impermissible act while he resents it (and only does so because of force of circumstances) shall be as one who never joined in the act. And whosoever does not join in such an act but likes it, is like one who participated in it.” (Majma-ul-Zawaaid)
It is indeed a very dangerous thing to be pleased with any sinful thing, no matter in whom it be found. And the root of all sin is kufr. How much more dangerous is it to be pleased with kufr?
Hazrat Mujaddid Alfi Thani R.A. wrote a very frightening story in his Makaateed (epistles), with a strong lesson for us. He says that he once went to visit a very sick man. When he came there he found the man very near to death. “I concentrated my spiritual attention on him and found that his heart was filled with darkness. Again I focused my spiritual attention on his heart for a long time in order to drive off the darkness, but the darkness had been created as a result of friendship with the kuffaar. This will not be dispelled by spiritual attention. It will only be removed by the fire of hell.” (Maktoob vol. par V)
What a frightening lesson! It shows that some impurities cannot even be removed through the focus of spiritual attention of the saints of Allah!
In a “weak” Hadeeth it is said: “Acquire nearness to Allah through hatred for sinners. Meet them roughly and seek the pleasure of Allah by being displeased with them and attain nearness to Allah by remaining aloof from them.” (Jami — us — Sagheer)
This Hadeeth is supposedly weak as far as its chain of narrators is concerned. But the contents are corroborated by other Hadeeth.
Azeezi wrote that it means that one should hate the sin and not the person of the sinner. This is also the meaning of all those Hadeeth wherein the contents are similar to this one. One should hate and resent the sin so that because of the love we have for someone or our special relationship with him; one does not look upon his evil deed as being something light and minor.
On the other hand the sin that is committed by him should not make us disregard the quality of Islam which lies in him. In this way there is a reconciliation way between the two extremes (hatred for him and unqualified love). This alone is the way in which we can keep all that we have been commanded to do, in its proper place.
