A MOCKERY OF THE QUR’BAANI IBAADAT
Agitated by the haraam mockery of the Shariah and the sombre Ibaadat of Qur’baani, a Concerned Brother writes:
“AssalaamuAlaykum Moulana. Can you comment on how stupid these people acquit themselves. Look how they making a mockery of the sheep. Qurbaani is an emulation of Ibrahim (alayhis salaam) willingness to sacrifice his son just to obey his Lord and in turn Allah Ta’ala blesses him with a ram ….but judging by this ad by the darululoom it’s one big circus funfare and an institution (which calls itself a darululoom) should know better than send out stupid mockery ads.
Is this permissible asking people to laybye something which does not exist (as yet). But bank details are provided.“
(End of letter)
Every Muslim knows or is supposed to know and understand the sombre gravity of the greatest sacrifice which Hadhrat Nabi Ibraaheem (Alayhis salaam) had offered by making Qurbaani (sacrificing) his beloved son, Hadhrat Ismaaeel (Alayhis salaam) at the Altar of Divine Love.
Every Muslim knows or is supposed to know the pangs of grief and the fountains of blood within him which Hadhrat Ibraaheem (Alayhis salaam) had suffered and patiently endured for Allah’s Sake when he was offering his supreme sacrifice at Allah’s Command.
But in this era in which satanism, fisq, fujoor and kufr preponderate. Muslims are making grotesque mockeries and indulging in shaitaani merrymaking on this sombre occasion of Ibaadat. Instead of the spirit of grief and love pervading them, they are wrapped in shaitaaniyat and nafsaaniyat, hence there is so much haraam merrymaking on the occasion of Qur’baani. In many places, Qur’baani has become an occasion of haraam picnicking where a number of ahkaan of the Shariah are obscenely violated.
At this ‘darul uloom’ which in fact is a Darul Jahl’, the event of Qur’baani has been made a mockery for commercial purposes. For the sake of monetary gain these miserable miscreants have compounded their haraam by publishing pictures of the sheep mockingly fitted with spectacles.
Let these Agents of Iblees use the spectacles to look deep into their hearts. They will then not fail to detect the hidden kufr lurking in their corrupt hearts. The lust for money has induced them to commit kufr flagrantly. The Qur’aan reminding them about their evil lust for worldly gain, says:
“The gain of the dunya is insignificant in relation to the Aakhirat”
For the jeefah (carrion) of the dunya they are bartering away their Imaan.
BUYING NON-EXISTENT ANIMALS IS HARAAM. THE SALE IS BAATIL – NOT VALID. EVEN IF THE ANIMALS ARE FIRST PROCURED, IT IS NOT PERMISSIBLE TO PURCHASE QUR’BAANI ANIMALS FROM SUCH MISCREANTS.
