A CRANK PROGRAMMED BY MISGUIDED CRANKS
Q. Please comment on the undermentioned programme. Is this Islamicaly valid?
“Islam is consistently and persistently under attack. The Christian West have intensified their campaign against Muslims throughout the world.
This is evident even to non –Muslims, which prompted our President, Jacob Zuma, to remark that “Christianity is the major cause of Africa’s problems”. The rise of Christian Evangelism throughout the world is unprecedented with Christian Missionaries challenging the Muslims on our doorstep. We simply cannot turn our backs to their challenges.”
Our Comment: Thus far, it is correct. However, the greatest attack against Islam emanates from Muslims themselves. They are their own worst enemies and the enemies of islam. Hence, on the Day of Qiyaamah, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) will complain to Allah Ta’ala:
“Verily, my nation has taken the Qur’aan as a mahjoor (to be kicked around like a ball).” – (Qur’aan)
The Deen of Allah is being buffeted, distorted, mutilated and abandoned by Muslims. We should not blame foreign enemies for our predicament. Blame the enemies from within ourselves. Look at the deluge of fisq, fujoor, bid’ah and kufr in which Muslim society all over the world revels, then one can understand who is whose enemy.

Our Comment: This is clearly another bogus money-making scheme. It is not permissible to contribute to this wasteful, merrymaking programme passed off in deceptive ‘deeni’ guise. Amid such heart-rending suffering in the Ummah, these cranks seek so much money for merrymaking. They require thousands of rands for ‘refreshments’ when Muslims in Syria are devouring even cats. They waste tens of thousands of rands for futile, stupid advertisements to publicize a silly merrymaking, nafsaani event.
If there was sincerity in these misguided persons, they would not require a cent for delivering lectures. All the fun associated with their stupid programme is not permissible. A lecture could be arranged in any Musjid/Madrasa hall. A Deeni event does not require all the futile and silly paraphernalia with which these cranks are adorning their party.
IT IS NOT PERMISSIBLE TO SUPPORT THESE MONEY-MAKING STUNTS PASSED OFF AS DEENI PROGRAMMES
