A fellow, Amien Minty, who happens to be a trustee of Musjid Falaah in Bird Street, Mayfair, Johannesburg, unilaterally, without consultation with or mandate of the Mutawallis of the Musjid, dismissed the Imaam, Maulana Moosa Leher telephonically. The Imaams’ ‘crime’ was his tabligh of the Sunnah. He was fired by the munaafiq because he (the Imaam) advised musallis to perform Salaat in the manner Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had commanded.


Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuh

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Respected Musalees of Masjid Falaah Bird Street Mayfair

Over the past few weeks I have been encouraging Musalees to read Salaah in the manner that Shariah and our Deen has explained through the beautiful Sunnah of Rasululaah Salallaahu Alaihi Wasallam.

This week after the Jummuah program I recieved a call from the Mutawalee for the very first time who was extremely angry and asked me to terminate my services of khidmat as Imaam of Masjid Falaah.

Alhamdulillah the last 8 years has been a beautiful experience for me and I ask each and everyone of you to please forgive me for my shortcomings and make Dua for me as I will also make Dua for you.

May Allah forgive us all bless us with His infinite love and grant us a death on Imaan. Aameen

Moosa Leher

An open letter to Amien Minty

Your dismissal and termination of Moulana Moosa’s services as Imam of Masjid Falah is truly a sad indictment on the credibility of the affairs of our masjid!

The fact that you did so without any consultation with the other mutawalles has finally brought the rooster home to roost … it now gives voice to the hallowed whispers that the affairs of our masjid is not run on any share principals nor on a mashwera basis but rather on an authoritarian and subjugation basis … “whatever Amien says .. is whatever must be done!”


Your reason for dismissal ….. “speaking out against Social Distancing” … is rather DISINGENUOUS! …. Considering that it was YOU that earlier this week that placed the barrier poles straight down the centre of the masjid to allow for both social proponents …… those that wanted Social distancing would be accommodated to the right within designated spaces …. Whilst those that yearned for salaah to be read in its prescribed manner of ‘shoulder-to-shoulder”.


If YOU did this … then how is it an issue that after months of Moulana Moosa beating this anti-social drum …. It is only NOW (and again only after YOU instituted the separation barriers) ….that you now take issue with him?? Clearly this leaves your motives on his dismissal now to be highly questionable ….. ????


Let us be clear of the following facts:

1) The pittance of salary that is paid to both the Imaam’s is in no way
representative of a living wage.

2) Moulana Moosa has NEVER-EVER been reliant on the monies paid to him …. I know for a fact that whenever he has collected his salary .. at times up to 6 months later … each and every time his salary was directly contributed to the FALAAH PROJECTS pot for use in our ongoing local community projects.

3) Moulana Moosa’s position as Imaam was only occupied out of Love & Concern for the community that WE live in.

4) Never has there been another imam in this masjids 20-year existence … that has displayed a Genuine & Caring concern ….not only for the Spiritual Upliftment of its congregants but also for the Social Upliftment of the Destitute and those less fortunate!


Will you be able to replace the ‘imaam’ ….. of course you will …. There are plenty of India and Pakistani imams ….. no disrespect to them ……but I can absolutely guarantee you that you WILL NOT be able to employ a local English speaking imam with the Oratory skills and vast knowledge of Deen that Moulana Moosa has; because neither of them will ever accept to be your ‘Gulaam” .. a ‘servant’ that will just ‘toe-the-line”. Perhaps it was Moulana Moosa’s independence and non-reliance of his salary that was the thorn in your side .. as you couldn’t control him.

If you think that you have gained in his dismissal ….. know well that you have done THIS community a grave INJUSTICE and that we the congregants are the LOSERS!

A voice copy of this weeks’ Jumma Bayaan was already sent to you yesterday and is available to any and all congregants, will validate that there was nothing different or derogatory that was said …. The mere fact that 1 .. I repeat ….1 musalle that found exception to a certain aspect of his speech … is purely a matter of opinion and interpretation ….. and THIS was then conveyed to you by your son …. Because you were NOT present …. And within 20 minutes thereof you called Moulana Moosa to dismiss him ……. Not only shows your Irrational Behaviour and High-Handedness, but also your Inability to be Calm, Collected and Intelligent!


A Truly Sad Day has now dawned on Masjid Falaah !


May Allah SWT guide us all and Protect us from the evil whisperings of Shaytaan! Ameen

(End of the Musalli’s comment)

Unqualified and munaafiq chaps being trustees of a Musjid is a sign of Qiyaamah. A man asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam):

“When will be the Hour (of Qiyaamah)?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When Amaanat is destroyed?” The man asked: “How will be its destruction?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When trust (trusteeship) is entrusted to those who are unqualified for it, then await the Hour.”

It is Waajib for the Musallis of the Musjids to boot out all these shaitaani Signs of Qiyaamah and appoint capable and pious persons to administrate the affairs of the Musaajid.
