Desecrating Allah’s Name.
Once Hadhrat Mujaddid Alf-e- Thaani (rahmatullah alayh) upon entering the toilet, immediately hastened out. As he had entered, he observed a tiny ink-dot on one of his finger nails. This was the cause for his rush out of the toilet. He had been writing a Deeni article, hence the ink-dot of his pen on his finger nail. This was the degree of adab (respect) he had for Knowledge of the Deen and words l inked wi th Allah Ta’ala. Even one tiny ink-dot stemming from his pen which was employed in writing the Name of Allah Azza Wa Jal, was the subject of honour and respect.
What should we now understand from the reckless disrespect, in fact blasphemy, which Muslims commit right inside the Musaajid where such papers and magazines are distributed which find their way into the trash bins and even in sewer drains? The glorious Names of Allah Ta’ala, Qur’aanic aayat and Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) are subjected to wanton disrespect and sacrilege.
Those responsible for the affairs of the Musjid should not permit the flotsam of magazines – haraam magazines and papers – to be distributed from the Musjid premises. Most of these papers are money- making gimmicks. 80% of the pages are filled with adverts, even haraam adverts. Some of these papers contain haraam pictures, and some propagate clear beliefs of kufr. Yet, the Imaams of the Musjids and trustees, in order to maintain haraam ties with the offenders, adopt silence and
permit the sacrilege to be perpetrated in the House of Allah Ta’ala.
When Allah’s Name and the Deen are subjected to so much disrespect, sacrilege and desecration, the Wrath of Allah Ta’ala and the Curses of the Qur’aan are bound to overtake the culprits. The authorities of the Musaajid should exercise greater care and control.
