In its latest baatil ‘fatwa’ on the issue of kuffaar sports, Mufti Ebrahim Desai’s Darul Ifta, in stark rejection of Rasulullah’s emphatic and explicit statement: “All sport of the Mu’min is haraam”, shamelessly  states: “...not all sport is haraam.”

The Mufti has restricted and curtailed the general prohibition issued by Rasulullah. He has satanically, contextualized the prohibition of his earlier fatwas on sport with baatil factors. Whilst such flagrant and shameless confrontation with the Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is expected of modernists and zindeeqs, it is totally unexpected of a Mufti whom we had hitherto believed to be among the Ulama-e-Haqq.

In our response to a query we stated that Mufti Ebrahim Desai is from among the Ulama of Haqq. We have misread the situation and have erred in this observation. We therefore retract our earlier opinion and say clearly that he is from among the ulama-e-soo’. His dalliance with kuffaar financial institutions and his desire to legalize haraam sport have  desensitized his Imaani inhibitions.

It is sad, terribly sad that he has finally joined the fraternity of ulama-e-soo’. May Allah Ta’ala keep our Imaan intact until the very last moment of life.
