SPAIN – THE SEEDS OF DESTRUCTION

Urdu Version at the bottom of this page

[By Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai]

Do you construct palaces as if you will be living forever (on earth)?” (Qur’aan)

A SAMPLE OF A SEED OF DESTRUCTION

Four miles from the City of Qurtuba (Cordova), on Mount Al-Uroos, Sultan Abdur Rahmaan had constructed a most ‘glorious’ palace which he named after his beloved slave girl, Az-Zahra’. This is a veritable city, not merely a building of pomp and splendour.

Az-Zahra should not be mistaken and understood to be a slave in the popular meaning of the term. She was not a slave doing menial labour in some kitchen. On the contrary, thousands of servants were at her beck and call. She was a veritable queen of queens. The Sultan was captivated by her, and it was for her sake that he built this palace which is better known as Medinatuz Zahra (the City of Zahra).

This palace was completed in 25 years. Within the limits of its compound lived many thousands of soldiers and workers. Its fortified walls had 15,000 massive and powerful gates. The length of this palace was 4 miles and its breadth 3 miles. For 25 years, daily 10,000 artisans and labourers, and 4000 camels and mules worked in the construction of this palace. The palace was constructed on 4316 massive pillars which were of a variety of precious stones. Some of the pillars were sent as gifts by the Christian kings of France, Constantinople and other European countries who sought the favour of the Sultan.

Two wonderfully constructed fountains were established in the palace. The bigger of the two was so adorned with gold-plating, giving the impression that the entire fountain was made of gold.

‘Beautiful’ (satanic in terms of Islam) statues of humans were constructed in this fountain as part of the decorations. The smaller fountain was built with green marble stone which was acquired from Syria. Twelve water outlets in the form of animals and birds built with precious stones and studded with diamonds, etc., from whose mouths and beaks water constantly gushed were erected at this fountain. Even European historians who had seen these fountains conceded that words could not do justice to the beauty and wonder of these constructions.

One section of the palace was known as Qasrul Khulafa’ (The Palace of the Khulafa). History books authored by westerners should be read to understand the splendour of this section. It will suffice to give an idea to mention that this section of the palace alone had 13,750 servants. From these, 6,314 were in the constant service of the queen of queen, Zahra, the beloved slave girl of Sultan Abdur Rahmaan. Daily 12,000 loaves of bread would be fed to the exotic fish in the Pond of Zahea.

Besides Qasruz Zahra (the Palace of Zahra), there were also other places such as Qasrul Ma’shooq (The Palace of the Beloved One), Qasrus Suroor (The Palace of Happiness), Qasrut Taaj (The Palace of The Crown), Qasrud Damishq (The Palace of Damascus), etc., etc., which were all unique. There was nothing on earth to match the embellishment and adornment of these palaces.

The Sultans of Spain had emulated Shaddaad who had attempted to build ‘jannat’ to vie with the Jannat the Nabi of the time had spoken of. These Sultans sought happiness and pleasure on earth completely oblivious of Maut and the Aakhirat. Not a single one of their herd of palace ulama had advised them about the impending evil and of the disastrous consequences which would follow in the wake of this insane pursuit of the dunya – a pursuit which had made them oblivious of Allah Ta’ala.

When the Sultan first visited the palace with his beloved Az-Zahra, on seeing the huge form of the black mountain in the background of the palace, she commented: “This palace is like a beloved sweetheart in the grips of an ugly man.” The Sultan immediately issued orders for the mountain to be demolished and its very roots be uprooted. To satisfy his beloved one, he was prepared, like Iblees, to stand as an adversary to Allah Azza Wa Jal.

Imaam Ghazali (Rahmatullah alayh) said that when a man is trapped in love with a woman, then 80% of his brain cells become inoperative. Finally when the wise men of the palace explained that it was an impossible task and that only Allah Ta’ala could destroy the huge mountain, the Sultan came to his senses.

Nevertheless, he issued orders for transforming the entire mountain into a massive orchard of fig trees, almond trees, pomegranates, flowers, etc. The mountain was soon transformed into a ‘garden of paradise’.

Thus, the Muslims themselves planted the seeds of their future destruction in Spain by courting the Wrath of Allah Azza wa jal. They had forgotten about Allah Ta’ala and the Deen.

Their ulama, instead of admonishing and advising the Sultans, totally abandoned Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahyi Anil Munkar. On the contrary, they fabricated fatwas to halaalize the evil and the shirk of statues in the same way as the molvis of this era have halaalized pictures of animate objects, digital pictures and television.

All of this satanism culminated in the final destruction of Muslim rule and the forcible conversion to Christianity and the expulsion of every single Muslim from Spain.

You (O Allah!) grant honour to whomever You will, and you humiliate whomever You will.” (Qur’aan)

Allah Ta’ala snatched away Spain from the Muslims and handed it over to His kuffaar Ibaad (servants), the Christians. Allah is Independent and Unique.

 

ہسپانیہ کی ہلاکت و بربادی کی بنیادی

از : حضرت مولانا احمد صادق دیسائی عمت فیوضہم

کیا تم اس طرح محلات تعمیر کرتے ہو جیسے کہ تم ہمیشہ رہو گے زمین پر  -(قرآن)

قرطبہ شہر سے چار میل کی دوری پر سلطان عبدالرحمن نے ایک بہت ہی عالیشان محل بنوایا تھا جس کا نام اس نے اپنی معشوق باندی الزہرہ کے نام پر رکھ دیا تھا- حقیقتا یہ خود میں ایک شہر تھا، نہ کے ایک شان و شوکت والی عمارت –

الزہرا کو باندی کے مشہور اصطلاحی معنی میں صرف ایک غلام یا نوکرانی سمجھنے کی غلطی نہ کی جائے- وہ کوئی رسوئ خانے میں کام انجام دینے والی معمولی غلام یا نوکرانی نہیں تھی- اس کے برعکس اس کے ایک اشارے پر ہزاروں ملازم پیش خدمت تھے۔ حقیقتا یہ ملکوں کی ملکہ تھی- سلطان اس پر دل فریفتہ تھا

اور صرف اس کے لیے اس نے یہ محل بنوایا تھا جو مدینۃ الزہراء یعنی زہرا کا شہر سے جانا جاتا تھا-

یہ محل پچیس سال میں مکمل ہوا- اس کے احاطہ اور حدود میں کئی ہزاروں فوجی اور کارکن رہتے تھے- اس کے محفوظ دیواروں میں 15 ہزار (١٥٠٠٠) مضبوط اور طاقتور دروازے تھے- اس محل کی لمبائی 4 میل اور چوڑائی 3 میل تھی- اس کو تعمیر کرنے میں پچیس سالوں تک روزانہ 10 ہزار (١٠٠٠٠) کاریگر اور چار ہزار (٤٠٠٠) اونٹ اور خچر کارآمد رہے- یہ محل مختلف قسم کے قیمتی اور نایاب پتھروں سے بنے 4316 بھاری ستونوں پر کھڑا کیا گیا تھا۔ ان میں سے چند ستون تحفے تحائف کے طور پر سلطان کی پاسداری کے متمنی قسطنطنیہ اور دیگر یورپین ممالک کے نصرانی بادشاہوں نے دیے تھے۔

محل میں دو حیرت انگیز چشمے بنائے گئے تھے ان دونوں میں سے بڑے چشمے کو اس طرح سونے کا پردہ چڑھا کر مزین کیا گیا تھا کہ وہ دیکھنے میں مکمل سونے کا نظر آئے-

خوبصورت (اسلامی معنیٰ میں شیطانی) انسانی مجسمے زینت کے طور پر ان چشموں میں قائم کیے گئے تھے- چھوٹا چشمہ ملک شام سے حاصل شدہ ہرے رنگ کے سنگ مر مر سے بنایا گیا تھا- قیمتی پتھروں سے بنے اور ہیرے جواہرات سے سجائے گئے جانوروں اور پرندوں کے مجسمے، جن کے منہ اور چونچ سے مسلسل پانی جاری رہنے والے بارہ فوارے ان جشموں میں قائم کیے گئے تھے-

یوروپی تاریخ دان جنہوں نے ان چشموں کو دیکھا ان سب نے تسلیم کیا کہ الفاظ اس خوبصورت و حیرت انگیز تعمیر کا حق ادا نہیں کر سکتے-

محل کا ایک حصہ قصر الخلفاء یعنی ‘خلفاء کا محل’ کے نام سے مشہور تھا- اس حصے کی شان و شوکت معلوم کرنے کے لیے مغربی بندوں کی لکھی ہوئی تاریخ کی کتابوں کا مطالعہ کیا جائے- یہ سمجھنے کے لئے کافی ہوگا کہ محل کے اس حصے میں 13 ہزار 750 (١٣٧٥٠) ملازم تھے- ان میں سے چھ ہزار تین سو چودہ (٦٣١٤) ملکاوں کی ملکہ زہرا، سلطان عبدالرحمن کی معشوق باندی کی مسلسل پیش خدمت رہتے۔ روزانہ 12 ہزار (١٢٠٠٠) بریڈ تالاب زہياء کی رنگ برنگی مچھلیوں کو کھلائی جاتی-

قصر الزہراء (زہراء کا محل) کے علاوہ دوسرے بھی محلات جیسے قصر المعشوق، قصر السرور، قصر التاج، قصر الدمشق وغیرہ بھی تھے، جو خود میں ایک مثال تھے- زمین پر ان محلات کی آرائش و زیبائش کی کوئی مثال نہ تھی۔

ہسپانیہ کے سلطانوں نے شداد کی ہمسری کی، جس نے اپنے وقت کے نبی کی بتائی ہوئی جنت کے مقابلے میں خود جنت بنانے کی کوشش کی تھی- ان سلطانوں نے موت و آخرت سے مکمل غافل ہو کر دنیا ہی میں راحت اور فرحت چاہی۔ ان سے وابستہ علماء کی جماعت میں سے کسی ایک نے بھی ان کو اس کھلی برائی پر نصیحت نہ کی اور نہ ہی انہیں اس دیوانہوار دنیا کی طلب جس نے انہیں اللہ تعالی سے غافل کر دیا تھا اس کے تباہ کن نتائج سے آگاہ کیا-

جب سلطان نے اپنی معشوقہ زہراء کے ساتھ محل کی پہلی زیارت کی تو اس نے محل کے پیچھے ایک بڑے کالے پہاڑ کو دیکھ کر تنقیدی انداز میں کہا “یہ محل تو بدصورت شخص کی گرفت میں ایک ماہوق دل ربا ہے”- سلطان نے فورا پہاڑ کو ڈھانے اور اسے مکمل طور پر زمین ریز کرنے کا حکم جاری کردیا- اپنی معشوقہ کو راضی کرنے کے لیے وہ ابلیس جیسا اللہ تعالی کا باغی بننے کے لیے تیار تھا۔

امام غزالی رحمتہ اللہ علیہ نے فرمایا ہے کہ جب کوئی مرد کسی مستورات کی محبت میں گرفتار ہوجاتا ہے تو 80 فیصد اس کے دماغ کی رگیں کام کرنا بند کردیتی ہیں (سوچنے اور سمجھنے کی قوت میں انحطاط آجاتا ہے)- آخر کار جب محل کے دانشوروں نے سمجھایا کہ یہ ایک ناممکن شئ ہے اور صرف اللہ تعالی اس بڑے پہاڑ کو تباہ کر سکتا ہے تب سلطان کی عقل ٹھکانے آگئی۔

تاہم اس نے حکم جاری فرمایا کہ اس پورے پہاڑ کو انجیر، بادام، انار کے درخت و پھول وغیرہ کا ایک ضخیم باغ بنایا جائے- جلد ہی اس پہاڑ کو جنت کے باغ میں تبدیل کیا گیا-

پس مسلمانوں نے اللہ تعالی کے غضب کو دعوت دیکر ہسپانیہ میں مستقبل کے لئے اپنی ہلاکت کے بیج بوئے انہوں نے اللہ تعالیٰ اور دین کو بھلا رکھا تھا۔

سلطانوں کو ترغیب و تنبیہ کرنا تو دور، ان کے علماء نے تو امر بالمعروف اور نہی عن المنکر کو مکمل ترک کردیا تھا اس کے برعکس انھوں نے مجسموں کی برائی و شرک کو حلال کرنے کے لیے فتوے ایجاد کیے تھے ٹھیک اسی طرح جیسے اس دور کے مولویوں نے جاندار کی تصویر ڈیجیٹل تصویر اور ٹیلیوژن کو حلال کیا ہوا ہے۔

یہ تمام شیطانیت بنیادیں بنی ہسپانیہ سے ہر ایک مسلمان کو بے دخل کرنے ، قوت زور پر نصرانیت کا قبول کرنے اور بالآخر مسلمانوں کی حکومت تباہ ہونے کی ۔

آپ اے اللہ جسے چاہتے ہیں عزت دیتے ہیں اور جسے چاہتے ہیں ذلیل کرتے ہیں- (قران)

اللہ تعالی نے ہسپانیہ کو مسلمانوں سے چھین لیا اور اپنے کفار بندے (نصرانیوں) کے حوالے کردیا-

اللہ تعالی بے نیاز و بے نظیر ہیں۔

Haspania – Halaakat wa Barbaadi ki Bunyaadein

  • Hadhrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai (‘ammat fuyoodhuhum)

“Kyaa tum iss tarah mahallaat taameer karte ho jaisa keh tum hameyshaa rahoge (zameen par)” (Qur-aan)

Qurtabah shahar se chaar mile ki doori par Al-Uroos naami pahaad par Sultaan ‘abdur-Rahmaan ne eik bahot hi ‘aalishaan mahal banwaayaa tha, jis ka naam uss ne apni maashooqah baandhi, Az-Zahra’ ke naam par rakh diya tha. Haqeeqatann yeh khud mein eik shahar hi tha na -keh sirf eik shaan wa shauqat wali ‘emaarat.

Az-Zahra ko baandhi ke mashoor istelaahi ma’naa mein sirf eik ghulaam yaa naukrani samajh ne ki ghalti na ki jaaye. Woh koi rasooi khaane mein kaam anjaam dey ne waali maamuli ghulaam yaa naukrani nahi thi. Iss ke bar-aks uss ke eik eshaarey par hazaaron mulaazim peyshe khidmat the. Haqeeqatann who malikaaon ki malikah thi. Sultan iss par dil fareftah tha aur sirf iss ke liye uss ne yeh mahal banwaayaa jo Madeenatuz-Zahra (Zahra ka Shahar) se jaanaa jaataa.

Yeh mahal 25 saal mein mukammal huwa. Iss ke ihaate hudood mein kayi hazaaron fauji aur karkoon rehte the. Iss ke mahfooz deewaaron mein 15,000 mazboot wa taaqatwar darwaazey the. Iss mahal ki lambaai 4 mile aur chaudaai 3 mile thi. Iss ko taameer karne mein 25 saalon tak roozaanah 10,000 karigay wa kaamgaar aur 4000 oont wa khachchar kar aamad rahe. Yeh mahal mulhtalif qism key qeemti naayab pattharon se bane 4316 bhaari sutoonon par khada kiya gaya tha. Enn mein se chand sutoon tohfe tahaaif ke taur par sultan ki pasdaari ke mutamanni france, constuntuniya aur deegar europi mamaalik ke nasraani baadshaaon ney diye the. Mahal mein 2 hairat angeyz chashmein banaaye gaye the. Unn dono mein se bade chashmein ko is tarah sooney ki parad chadha kar muzayyan kiyaa gayaa thaa ki woh dikhne mein mukammal sooney ka nazar aaye.

Khoobsoorat (Islaami ma’nah mein shaytaani) insaani mujassamein zeenat ke taur par unn chashmon mein qaaim kiye gaye the. Chota chashmah Mulk shaam se haasil shudah harey rang ke sange mar-mar se banaayaa gayaa tha. Qeemti pattharon se baney aur heerey jawaahiraat sey sajaaye gaye jaanwaron aur parindon ke mujassameh, jin ke muah aur choonch sey musalsal paani jaari rehne waale baarah fawwaarey unn chashmon mein qaaim kiye gaye the. Europi taareekhdaan jin ho ne enn chashmon ko deykha unn sab ne tasleem kiya ke alfaaz iss khoobsoorat wa hairat angeyz taameer ka haq adaa nahi ka sakte.

Mahal ka eik hissa Qasrul Khulafa’ (Khulafa ka Mahal) ke naam se mashoor tha. Iss hisse ki shaan wa shauqat ma’loom karne ke liye maghribi basndon ki likhi huwi taareekh ki kitaabon ka mutaalaa kiya jaye. Yeh saajh ne ke liye kafi hoga ke mahal ke iss hisse mein 13,750 mulaazim the. Unn mein se 6,314 malikaaon ki malikah zahra, sultan abdur-Rahmaan ki maashooq baandhi ki musalsal peyshe khidmat rehte. Roozaanah 12,000 bread Talaab-e- Zahea ki rang-birangi machliyon ko khilayi jaati.

Qasruz-zahra (zahra ka mahal) ke elawa doosre bhi mahallaat jaise Qasrul Ma’shooq (mahal-e-ma’shooq), Qasrus Suroor (mahal-e-suroor), Qasrut Taaj (mahal-e-taaj), Qasrud Damishq (mahal-e-Damishq) waghairah bhi the, jo khud mein misali the. Zameen par enn mahallaat ki aaraaish wa zeybaaish ki misali koi na thi.

Haspania ke sultaanon ne shaddaad ki hamsari ki, jis ne apne waqt ke Nabi ki bataayi huwi ‘Jannat’ ke muqaable mein khud ‘jannat’ banaane ki koshish ki. Enn sultaanon ne Maut wa Aakhirat se mukammal ghaafil ho kar dunyaa hi mein raahat wa farhat chaahi. Unn se waabastah ‘ulamaa ki jamaa’at mein se kisi eik ne bhi unn ko iss khuli buraai par naseehat nahi ki aur naa hi unn hen iss deewaanaawar dunya ki talab, jis ne unnhen ALLAAH Ta’aalaa se ghaafil kar diya tha iss ke tabaah kun nataaij se aagaa kiya.

Jab sultan ne apni ma’shooq az-zahra ke sath mahal ki pehli ziyaarat ki to uss ne mahal ke peeche eik bade kaale pahaad ko dekh kar tanqeeqi andaaz mein kaha,

               “yeh mahal to bad-soorat shakhs ke gifit mein eik ma’ahooq dilrubah jaisa hai.”

Sultan ne faurann pahaad ko dhane aur usey mukammal taur par zameer raiz karne ka hukm jaari kar diya. Apni ma’shooqah ko raazi karne ke liye woh iblees jaisa ALLAAH Ta’aalaa ka baaghi ban ney ke liye tayyar tha.

Imaam Ghazali (rahmatullaahi ‘alaih) ne farmya hai ki jab koi mard kisi mastoorat ki muhabbat mein gifitaar ho jaata hai to 80% uss ke dimaagh ki ragein kaam karna bandh kar deyti hain (soochne aur samajh ne ki quwwat mein inhetaat aa jaataa hai). Aakhir kar jab mahal ke daanishwaron ne samjhaayaa ki ye eik naa-mumkin shay hai aur sirf ALLAAH Ta’aalaa uss bade pahaad ko tabaah kar sakte hain tab sultaan ki ‘aql thikaane aa gayi.

Taaham uss ne hukm jaari farmaayaa ki uss poore pahaad ko ajjeer, baadaam, anaar ke darakht,, phool waghairah ka eik zakheem baagh banaayaa jaaye. Jald hi uss pahaad ko ‘jannat ke baagh’ mein tabdeel kiyaa gaya.

Pas Musalmaanon ne ALLAAH Ta’aalaa ke Ghazab ko da’wat de kar haspania mein mustakbil ke liye apni halaakat ke beej boye. Unn ho ney ALLAAH Ta’aalaa aur Deen ko bhulaa rakha tha.

Sultaanon ko targheeb wa tambeeh kar na to door, unn ke ‘ulamaa ne to Amr bil-Ma’roof aur Nahyi ‘Anil-Munkar ko mukammal tark kar diya tha. Iss ke bar-aks unn ho ney mujassamon ki buraai wa shirk ko haalaal kar ne ke liye fataawey ejaad kiye theek uss hi tarah jaise iss daur ke maulviyon ne jaandaar ki tasaaweer, digital tasaaweer aur television ko halaal kiya huwaa hai.

Yeh tamaam shaytaaniyat buniyaadein bani haspaniya se har eik musalmaan ko bedakhal karne, qawaat-e-zorr par nasraaniyat qabool karne aur bil aakhir musalmaanon ki hukoomat tabaah hone ki.

“Aap (Aye ALLAAH) jise chaahate hain ‘ezzat deyte hain aur jise chaahte zaleel karte hain.” (Qur-aan)

ALLAAH Ta’aalaa ne haspania ko Musalmaanon se cheen liye aur APNE kuffar ‘ebaad (bandey), nasraaniyon ke hawaaley kar diya.

ALLAAH Ta’aalaa Bey-Niyaaz wa Bey-Nazeer hain.

    Aslamulaikum ….one of my friends sent this on her family group then in return her brother sent her this…pls can you get a suitable reply in a polite way so that I can forward it to them and also they get to understand the truth in a nice way..jzk..

    Please avoid sending stuff like this I have read multiple books on islamic Spain and there were many scholars and noble people who lived in that society and even challenged the King’s of their time… I’ve never heard of this mountain… plus it is highly wrong to say that today’s scholars have made pictures of animate objects halal therefore allah swt’s rath will come on us many scholars use Facebook and YouTube as a form of dawa are they all going hell? This is what I meant about sharing these random pass on messages which people send without reading/thinking about….. nothing beneficial came from that message….how about a message on the amazing fantastic developments in science medicine and architecture the Muslims of Spain contributed to the world? I’ve been Spain even in their ‘pomp and glory’ they never forgot who the true master was as the Nasrid dynsary emblem (which you can see in my whattsapp pic) says
    wala ghaliba illallah meaning their is no conquerer except Allah swt…..

      Although your friend is well read in relation to the Muslim rule of Spain, it seems that the books he has read are incomplete – as he himself has stated that he never heard of the Sierra Morena mountain range. It is also quite possible that these books emphasize more on academic, political, and historical achievements and failures rather than the Taqwa of the people or efforts to protect it. In addition to my own reading of multiple books on this topic, I state this because of his zeal to focus on the achievements in science, medicine, and architecture of Muslim Spain.

      Narratives affect our understanding of the world. The contemporary popular narrative focusing on the achievements of Islam has no place for Taqwa. It is not an Islamic narrative. It was developed with half-truths by secular non-Muslim academics. Many Muslims – in turn – use this narrative of achievements to validate their existence to themselves and the kuffar.

      Based on my own observations, I truly believe this narrative is a deceptive tool – developed by dajjalic inspiration – to mislead Muslims into loving the world and their contributions to it.

      It’s important to understand that Allah doesn’t care about these achievements. He actually doesn’t care about this world at all.

      In a narration from Sunan Ibn Majah, it is related:
      “We were with the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in Dhul-Hulaifah, when we saw a dead sheep lifting its leg (because of bloating). He (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: ‘Don’t you think this is worthless to its owner? By the One in Whose hand is my soul, this world is more worthless to Allah than this (dead sheep) is to its owner. If this world was worth the wing of a mosquito to Allah, the disbeliever would not have a drop to drink from it.’”
      – Source: sunnah.com/urn/1292120

      Worldly achievements as defined by these narratives mean nothing to Allah. This is all the more important for Muslims to understand because of the deceptive narrative that praises and normalizes things that Allah has forbidden. It is more important to understand the things that draws Allah’s wrath than science, medicine, and architecture – particularly if any of the “achievements” in these fields contain anything forbidden by Allah.

      When a person forgets Allah, when he or she forgets the reality of Allah’s guidance, when he or she takes this guidance lightly because of this forgetfulness, committing sins become easy. When sins become normalized, it’s only a matter of time before the punishment of Allah is realized.

      Having inscriptions praising Allah and actually following what Allah wants us to do are mutually exclusive things. For example, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has an Islamic inscription on its flag – yet the actions of this government are not in conformance with the pleasure of Allah. Allah states that when you act against the pleasure of Allah, you have forgotten Allah.

      This is mentioned in Surah Tawbah, verse 67:
      “The hypocrite men and hypocrite women are of one another. They enjoin what is wrong and forbid what is right and close their hands. They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them [accordingly]. Indeed, the hypocrites – it is they who are the defiantly disobedient.”

      Social media was developed by experts to be a psychological trap. It was deliberately designed to make a person forget reality. This has been admitted to in an Axios interview by Sean Parker, the founding president of Facebook. It is through these social media platforms that Muslims are normalizing sin on an unprecedented scale.

      Islamic scholars aren’t immune to the intentions of the designers. Ulama aren’t immune to leading people astray by – at the very least – falling into the trap and unwittingly normalizing the sins that these platforms were designed to promote. It’s important to be aware that it is possible for even well-intentioned Ulama to be punished by Allah.

      In a narration from Sahih Muslim, it is related that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
      “O Fatimah, rescue yourself from the Fire, for I have no power (to protect you) from Allah in anything except that I would sustain relationship with you”.
      – Source: sunnah.com/riyadussaliheen/1/329

      There is no possibility of Fatima (radiyallahu anha) even thinking about sin. Yet Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is warning her of the consequence of displeasing Allah. This should give Ulama pause when they think of adopting methods of dawah that have a high potential of normalizing sin.

      These are just my thoughts.

    Alhamdulillah, Very well-written and appropriate article.
    The thought immediately goestowards Dubai and other Muslim nations and Communities, who are trying to rewrite Destiny at the expense of Deen.
    At international, national and local level, Muslims have become so drowned in love of the world, we too squander the resources at our disposal in futility.
    How soon before all these other Muslim Enclaves experience similer seismic upheavels?

    Allah Ta’ala grant barakah in Hadhrat Mufti Sahebs Services & Health and grant us tawfeeq to benefit
