THE DONKEYS OF SAUF

A SISTER’S APPRAISAL OF NNB JAMIAT’S ‘SAUF’ SHENANIGANS

Assalaamu Alaikum

Ulama at the Majlis


As a person who had much reservations towards the majlis for decades, i think i have to change my view. although very harsh in tone your message was infact true all along. May you all be blessed. i wish to call on a mass boycott and have started encouraging all my friends and family to do so, maybe by you publicly announcing this it might reach more people. This is my letter to the Jamiat


Assalaamu Alaikum


I am a South African Muslim woman and I write to you with a grieved heart.


I came across the recording of the SAUF conference held at Nurul Islam. Understanding that Jamiatul Ulama is supposed to serve the interests of the Muslim community of South Africa I want to express how torn I feel after hearing some of the intentions and thoughts discussed at the Ulama conference especially those regarding women.


I am not an Aalimah, but I feel as if I am being ripped off my rights and privileges which Allah and Deen has given us as women. Firstly, how can we ever have a problem with the patriarchal principle of Deen. Besides the Deeni aspect ask any woman and she will affirm that we feel secure and more than happy when our men who are in charge of us (our mahrams) are real men and treat us like real women, not when they expect us to become like men. So we as women say Yes to men being our leaders and in charge of everything to do with us, but it must be done by those men who are in charge of us not by outsiders who have nothing to do with us.


You spoke about women must become doctors etc...but you didn't think how you ripping us off our divine roles of motherhood, womanhood, wifehood. You are making us become like Kaafir women. What about our children and our home duties which we cherish and love to attend to. Do you expect us to become doctors, earn big and then see our homes collapsing because husbands now don't see a need to see to our basic needs because we are earning salaries and can fend for ourselves then soon husbands will no longer be husbands and rather make as if they can't find work and then rely on their wives and soon you will see the breakdown of the home. There are instances like this already, perhaps your marriage 'counsellors' haven't informed you... Are you not clued up with the media as you claim to be? Did you not hear how the Kuffar in Western countries have realised that by their woman being out in the community or earning world their children are becoming delinquents and taking to the street.


There is no better contribution for us as women to make than to rear our children with our hands and not leave them in the hands of domestic workers and crèches. Rather you as "Ulama" should be encouraging us in this sacred role because if we rear our children correctly there is hope that the Deen of future generations will be stronger and Muslims will be stronger and Allah will send His mercy and help for us against the Kuffaar. If you as "Ulama" have to make leeways for us the masses to adhere to a lifestyle which Islam doesn't demand of us then there will nothing of Islam in Muslims but their names. Also instead of trying to alter the divine role of women to something else rather direct your effort and discussions to remind and encourage men to treat their womenfolk well so that they feel recognized and acknowledged in their home then perhaps your womenfolk won't feel marginalised. Stop trying to imitate Menk and Zimbabawe  or Astralia, if they chose the path to hell you don’t need to follow.


Bringing womenfolk into a non divine role will worsen a problem it won't help. In fact the root cause is with the men and Ulama like you who want to water down this pure Deeni. Firstly  because they don't deem their women as partners whom they sharing life with but rather as a slave or extra furniture...worse still is that you find non Deeni Muslims honouring and fulfilling the Islamic rights of their wives more than what the nowadays Aalims are. Sit and think of your own home and how you deal or treat your womenfolk and you will find that its conduct like what you display at home that is causing women to feel "marginalised".


What about when you come home and sit on your phone (whether with social media or internet) and your wife patiently waits and hopes that you can give her some attention but the moment she need to say something you silence her because you too busy on you phone... And that's the same that you do to your children...how can you be so short sighted to encourage the use of social media...knowing the ills of these devices as your fellow men admit to it.


Don't absolve yourself of all of these points because you were not the speaker...you(the jamiat) entertained and allowed these people to poison the minds of the masses with these haraam doctrines...you part of the blame now and on the Day of Qiyamah if you don't repent and also publicly declare that you don't support these views. How can you say that our women are going to malls and gatherings and Jalsa's so they should be allowed in the Musjid. Allah's law is that us women should only leave the home out of necessity but you find a haraam deed, a fitnah as proof for opening a door which has been closed (i.e. Another haraam). Have you lost your Intelligence?


Let me with my limited knowledge remind you of the incident of the Aalim who passed away and was buried in one of the two Holy cities and his body was transposed to a Kaafir cemetery all because of his preference for one habit of the non Muslims. You are very bold in front of Allah to openly and publicly declare your preference for the Kufaar way of studies and for the Kufaar lifestyle and for the Kuffaar methodology over that of the Deen which was passed on and simplified for us and which still stands to bring success.


Have you forgotten that there will be a Day when we will be called to account.


This deen is simple! Us  non-ulama can see this! there is only one way to spread Islam and that is the way of Nabi (Alayh Salaam) and the Sahaabah and our pious elders. Your job is only to give the pure message of Deen, if people don’t follow you don't need to improvise and innovate to accommodate them. How can you go on TV, how can you stand for photos, how can you bring cameras in the musjids. you people have really gone off track. You think we fall for all your brainwashing on radio islam, think again brothers! the more you speak the more we see through your nonsense. A person who stinks can’t keep covering up his smell with perfume, sooner or later people will realise.


LEAVE YOUR MODERN IDEAS BEHIND, FORGET THIS MODERN WORLD. YOU ARE CORRUPTING THE UMMAH WITH YOUR NONSENSE. WALAAH! WE AS THE PUBLIC WILL FIGHT YOU ON THIS. WE, THE PUBLIC ARE NOT AS STUPID AS YOU THINK WE ARE.


ULAMA WHO THINK LIKE YOU SHOULD BE PHYSICALLY BEATEN OUT OF THEIR POSITIONS. WE WILL BOYCOTT YOU, IGNORE YOU AND DO EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER TO ERASE YOU FROM OUR COMMUNITIES!!!


I USE THIS TO CALL UPON ALL THE TRUE ULAMA AND SINCERE MUSLIMS TO BOYCOTT ANY AALIM ASSOCIATED WITH THE FORDSBURG JAMAIT, REMOVE THEM AS IMAAMS FROM OUR MUSAAJID, DECLINE THEM THE JUMMAH PLATFORM, DONT ALLOW THEM TO TEACH YOUR CHILDREN.


AND ALL THOSE WHO KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT BUT SIT QUIET OR FEAR TO SPEAK, MAY ALLAH TAKE CARE OF YOU WITH HARSHNESS. YOU ARE JUST THE SAME AS THE ENEMY IF YOU DONT STAND UP.
