Voicing his concern and disgust at the kufr clowning and mockery of the Deen, a Brother from Cape Town writes:​​


I recently received a pamphlet (attached) about an 'Islamic' comedy show here in Cape Town. 

The disturbing aspect is that these organises are making it out to be of islamic nature. The marketers of this show 'Dar al-Turath Al Islami' which promotes itself as an Islamic awareness and deeni organisation is misleading mainly the ignorant youth.

The amount of youth that seems to be intrigued by these shows are increasing rapidly here in Cape Town. These so call Islamic groups are not helping the situation at all, and the local 'shiekhs' and imaams don't seem to show any concern for these type of activities, as if it's just another childhood phase.

How can one even consider a comedy mockery like this when so many muslims are suffering and being persecuted around the globe? Also, im sure this type of gathering falls under 'Tashabuh bil Kufaar' or even worse?.

The youth of today are supposed to be the leaders of tomorrow, but with this type of mockery happening, one can only ask what type of 'islam' will these people be following? Some of these muslim youth are even considering becoming comedians as a career path. Ever since Riaad Moosa shot into the spot light, people see these type of shows as permissible and normal.

Please I would like to ask Mujlisul Ulama to write an  Article about this before it spreads even further among the youth. The haraam of these shows should be clearly indicated to the youth.

May Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala save us from the evil of this world and the hearafter.

In the past we did present the Shariah’s comment on this type of kufr clowning. The one who indulges in  this sort of clowning is making a mockery of Islam – a mockery of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and a mockery of Allah Azza Wa Jal. The excuses which the murtad proffers to justify his kufr clowning comes  fully within the scope of the Qur’aanic aayat: 

“Do not present excuses, for verily you have committed kufr after (professing) your Imaan. Therefore, (O Believers) do not sit with them (i.e. with these munaafiq clowns and mockers)...”


The type of  clowning which the murtad practises confirms his nifaaq and kufr. His clowning is not only Tashabbuh Bil Kuffaar. It is Istikhfaaf with the Deen and explicit kufr.  Shaitaan has numerous agents whom he  lets loose in the community to  deviate Muslims – ignorant and stupid Muslims – from Siraatul Mustaqeem. Clowning and coonery are among the snares of the Devil. Those who participate in any way whatsoever  in this kind of mockery of the Deen lose their Imaan. They are among the worst kind of murtaddeen. They are in fact worse than Iblees himself. 

It is haraam to  support  the haraam clowning and mockery shows of the murtad clown. Those who attend  to join, listen and spectate the evil, fisq, fujoor and villainy of the murtaddeen clowns should understand that they do so at the peril of destroying their Imaan. 

As for the ‘sheikhs and imaams’ of Cape Town, they all are, in the words of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ‘Dumb Devils’. In fact, these silent, dumb shayaateen are the forerunners in all the evil and immorality, bid’ah and kufr which  are destroying the Muslim community. These so-called ‘learned’ juhala have in fact initiated all the evil – fisq and fujoor, bid’ah and kufr – in which the Muslim community is drowning.  They are the breed of shayaateen about whom Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) expressed his fears: 

“Verily, I fear for my Ummah the mudhilleen aimmah (sheikhs and imams who mislead and misguide the Ummah).”
