AL-ANSAR’S SOUK IS THE SOUK OF SHAITAAN
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“The most beloved places for Allah are the Musaajid, and the most hated places to Allah are the souks (market places).”
A man came to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and asked: “O Rasulullah! Which cities are the vilest?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “I do not know.” Later when Jibraeel (Alayhis salaam) appeared, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) asked: “O Jibraeel! Which are the vilest cities?” Jibraeel (alayhis salaam) said: “I do not know I have to ask my Rabb Azza Wa Jal.” After some time, he returned, and said: “O Muhammad! Verily, you asked me: ‘Which are the vilest cities?’ I had said that ‘I do not know.’ I have asked my Rabb Azza Wa Jal, he says: “The souks (market places).”
Do understand well that the aswaaq (market places) mentioned in these Hadith narrations relate to the normal places of trading. They relate to market places which are halaal necessities of life which were frequented by even the Auliya and Ambiya. These lawful souks despite their imperative need for the community, and despite their lawfulness are still the most hated by Allah Azza Wa Jal. They are cited in opposition to the Musaajid which are the best, the noblest and holiest places on earth. This juxtaposition implies that the souks are places which divert man from Thikrullah and which do embroil him in a variety of sins, hence the market places are the worst and the vilest of places.
In view of the real need to acquire life’s needs from market places, permission has been granted to visit these evil places only for fulfilment of needs, and for no other purpose. It should also be noted that the permission applies to valid market places – the usual places of normal trade and commerce. The permission does not relate to ‘souks’ of entertainment, merrymaking, fisq and fujoor such as the shaitaani carnival souk of Ansaarush Shaitaan organized annually to fleece stupid people and to involve them in the sins of immorality and zina.
The sins perpetrated – the fisq and fujoor – prevalent at the souk festival/carnival of the Ansaarush Shaitaan gang are too many and too glaring to even discuss. Every Muslim who has a kindergarten awareness of the Shariah will understand the filth and villainy of the Devil’s Souk organized by the Ansaarush Shaitaan (The Helpers of Iblees) organization.
All the characters who are actors in the different shaitaani shows organised for the haraam immoral ‘souk’ are fussaaq, fujjaar and munaafiqeen. Their nasheeds and their qiraa’t are all haraam to listen. Attending the haraam ‘souk’ of the devil is haraam. Muslims are required to apply their intelligence to understand the fitnah in to which they are casting themselves with their participation in this festival of Iblees.
It has been narrated that even at the genuine market places the very first one to be present even prior to the traders opening their shops, is Iblees. Once Hadhrat Junaid Baghdadi (Rahmatullah alayh) saw Shaitaan walking stark naked in the souk. Hadhrat Junaid said: “O Accursed Shaitaan! At least have some shame for the people.” Shaitaan very nonchalantly responded: “If they were people, I would have had shame.” In other words, the people in the souks themselves are so shameless and vile that Shaitaan equated them to animals for which there is no need to maintain hijaab.
This is the category into which Shaitaan relegated the people visiting lawful souks for their lawful needs. What category does Shaitaan reserve for those evil fussaaq and fujjaar who attend Ansaarush Shaitaan’s carnival souk where everything of islam is made a mockery, where fisq and fujoor predominate?
May Allah Ta’ala guide Muslims. May Allah Ta’ala open up their clogged hearts and their blocked brains – clogged and blocked with an excess of fisq and fujoor.
