THE NNB JAMIAT’S MOON DEBACLE
A SISTER’S ADVICE TO REVEREND BHAM
THE FOLLOWING IS A VERBATIM REPRODUCTION OF A SISTER’S LETTER WHICH SHE HAS SENT TO REVEREND ABRAHAM BHAM OF THE NNB jamiat OF FORDSBURG:
We have lost great hope in you in recent times.
We are very disappointed with the stance you took regarding the moon issue this month.
Firstly by by allowing the 'sunni ulama councils' to be part of your uucsa you are allowing them to be recognized as ulama bodies that are safe to follow, yet this is not the case. By people thinking they are recognized bodies (which you are responsible for) the public will be encouraged to participate in the tons of bidah these people propagate.
Secondly, by making your announcement regarding the moon, you have encouraged them to continue with their bidah. From what I understand there could never be sharee grounds for them not to accept the sightings (this is true because you accepted it, so why didn't they). Its obvious the only reason they did not was because they (the 'sunni' bidatees) wanted their bidah meelad function to be on monday for obvious reasons.
Thirdly, you are very naive to think that you will simply 'implore' and 'humbly request' us to respect your decision. like I said before, we as the public are not so dumb. So on this point you share a part in all the bidah that takes place and for the thousands of innocent muslims who mistakenly think you are right and follow your advice to respect the decision, you again have a part in each one of those thousands of muslims who now will sit back and respect the fact that these bidatees have gone against Allah's law and rejected a valid sighting. So everyone accepts the haraam and you get a full share of this, you are fully responsible for all of this. its in your account, on your name signed and sealed. One share for each person. Man am I glad I'm not you! One can only imagine how you going to answer on the day of Qiyaamat and how you going to face Nabi (Alayh salaam).
So basically your announcement to the public was that a certain group of people have insulted Islam and the sharia and that you are requesting us to respect them for this. This is crazy.
Fourthly, you use our illustrious Sahaabah (radiallahu anhum) and the illustrious Aimmah to back up this request of yours. This is an insult to them that you use their name to ask the ummah to respect that a group of bidatees have broken Allah's law. How will you face them on the day of Qiyaamat?
Fifthly, you do all this in the name of unity, but don't you see that this has opened the eyes of many. People who are sincere now see the reality of things. If you ask us to accept haraam obviously we will have to oppose you and distance our selves from you, is this not actually causing dis-unity. How can you expect us to be united with those who commit shirk and bidat. Thats not the unity Islam wants from us. So again whoever listens to you and becomes united with these bidatees, you will again take a share in that sin and a share in the evil of causing disunity.
I honestly think you need to stop, sit back and reflect. Its never too late to come out of it, you currently have the power to do so. Change your stance to what is correct and all the brainless sheep that follow you will atleast follow you towards some good. Right now you just leading yourself and the thousands behind you into big trouble.
I don't even wish to make salaam at the end of this letter but I do believe you have it in you to change so for now, wassalaam.
