ZINA AND THE PLAGUE

ZINA AND THE PLAGUE

Among the causes of a plague is the prevalence of zina. When this filth becomes widespread, it becomes a cause for a plague. In this era both Muslims and non-Muslims indulge in fornication and adultery flagrantly and blatantly. In fact, zina and deeds of satanic perversion have acquired acceptance and even respect.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“When faahishah (zina, homosexuality and immorality of all kinds) become rampant, then plagues and such diseases will afflict the people, of which their forefathers had not heard.”

The planet earth is rotten with fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism and other satanic varieties of sexual perversion. Almost every Muslim indulges in cellphone zina. Indulgence in cellphone pornography is filth in which even ‘scholars’, molvis and sheikhs indulge.

Those who indulge in these cesspools of filth and moral inequity appear to be atheists. It is not possible for a true Mu’min to become addicted to such rot and filth. While a sin can be committed in a moment of ignorance and nafsaaniyat, a Mu’min does not become an addict of immorality nor does he pre-plan sin.

Remember that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that when a person indulges in zina, his Imaam exits from his body and remains suspended. Should any one of the fornicators perish in the act, he dies without Imaan. This applies to even cellphone zina.

In terms of the Aakhirat, zina of the eyes, zina of the ears, zina of the tongue, zina of the mind and heart are also actual zina, i.e. the actual act of adultery. The punishment in the Aakhirat will be the same.

It is not surprising if the current epidemic is the consequence of the planet submerged in the filth of fornication, adultery, sexual perversion and the like.

What will be the status of money earned from the buying & selling of Valentine’s Day items?

QUESTION:

Please advise me with regards to the buying and selling of Valentine’s Day items, what will be the status of the money earned from such trade?

ANSWER:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The inception and history of Valentine’s Day is vague and clouded by various fanciful legends.

However, there is reference of Valentines having its roots in Christianity and celebrating the anniversary of Valentine, the priest.

Today, Valentine is known to be a day of love and romance and more so a commercially driven holiday. Valentine promotes promiscuity and immoral behavior which is in clear opposition to the teachings of Islam. Allah Ta’ala says,

وَلَا تَقْرَبُوا الزِّنَا ۖ إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَاحِشَةً وَسَاءَ سَبِيلًا {32}

“Abstain totally from zina (fornication), for it is immoral and an evil way.” (Quran 17:32)

As Muslims, we should completely disassociate ourselves from such un-Islamic events and holidays – whether it be directly participating in its activities or helping promote the holiday by purchasing items with symbols of the occasion.

The purchasing and selling of items with symbols of such holidays should not be viewed independently.

Items sold in relation to Valentine’s Day may be classified in three categories;

1) Those that do not have any relation to Valentine. However, the store marks the prices down due to the holiday season. The purchase and sale of such items will be permissible.

2) Those items which are exclusive to Valentine’s Day, for example, Valentine’s Day cards. The purchase and sale of such items will be impermissible.

3) Those items which are generally permissible to buy and sell, such as chocolates and flowers, but they have symbols of Valentine.

It is Makrooh (resented) to purchase and sell such items.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best.

The biggest enemy of Muslims is….Muslims

As a father, nothing is more painful than seeing our Muslim children around the world suffering. We see the Syrians, Palestinians, Iraqi, Afghani – slaughtered and their blood streaming into rivers.

However, as I sat watching, listening and reading the many many condemnations of the Israeli atrocities against our brethren in Palestine, on websites, in the masjid, on YouTube, news agencies around the world – after seeing all the appeals, petitions, marches, protests and pleas for help from many organizations and people, this is the thought that came to mind: Why would Allah (swt) – hurt his own people who worship him?

Then, I thought – Allah loves his people 70 times more than a mother loves her children. Then why is Allah allowing this to happen?? After opening the Quran and reading numerous Ahadith – the answer was clear. When Allah’s anger is in full force – when his obedience is lost, when His beloved Messenger’s example is mocked, when his people forget his message and his prophetic way — He (swt) will send reminders.
War, blood, pain, killing and the loss of our innocent children — the only reminder we understand.

With over 50 years of Palestinian conflict – years of debate – our eyes, hearts are sealed with the real problem. Syrian massacre in front of us – a country shredded with no end of war in sight. Iraq millions butchered. Afghanistan shelled for decades…and all the other Muslim nations similar and screaming for help.

The cause? The cause is not the Jews, Zionists, Munafiqs, Freemasons, Bilderbergs – they are not the reason – but only a means; a tool Allah has used to wake up this ummah. But 99% are still asleep.

Our minds our engrossed in this world, love of the competition of success – glory, glamour, status and power and forgetfulness of death.

Our race is for the biggest house, a collection of cars, fancy number plates, a glamorous lifestyle, a parade of shops, a huge bank balance – a wardrobe of designer clothes, shoes, phones, holidays, watches…the list is eternal.

Until and unless, the collective ummah, does not STOP the copycat lifestyle of the disbelievers – the kuffar, behaving like kuffar and supporting the kuffar activities, blending our belief — Allah azza wa jall will withhold HIS support. He will turn the mercy OFF until you submit to him 100%.

You can appeal in millions on every street – in every country – but it will be a grain of sand in weight. Millions marched to stop the invasion of Iraq and still – the bombing pounded every city and rubbled masjids. Millions marched in Egypt – their country destroyed.

Millions march and cry….but how many do tawba, repent and change and submit to Allah and follow a real Islam? It is no use criticizing the Jews if we have not changed our appearance, our entertainment and our culture to that of our beloved NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

We cannot persist in supporting them through watching their filth on t.v, Hollywood trends, dancing to music, wearing their haraam clothing and eating doubtful foods and then cry foul when they eat us alive! The change that is needed is not in Washington, Tel Aviv or London. It is in the homes, lounges, kitchens and workplace — of every single reciter of the kalimah!

I challenge every one of you my brothers & sisters – throw out that evil box that damages our thinking, our morals and our imaan! Then we will see the help of Allah descend. If we behave like Muslims, then Allah has promised,’wa kaana haqqan alaynaa nasrul mumineen’ ‘It is a right upon us to help the believers’.

Making propaganda and insulting Jews is not helping, they are only one nation who Allah is using. Like the Islamophobic groups that are appearing everywhere, who and why were they created? Why would Allah allow groups to terrorize the Muslims and insult his Prophet ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) . The truth is we are the Insult – the Muslims of the 21st Century.

We the Muslim today say that Islam is too difficult. Let’s blend the east and west, let’s integrate our wives, our children. You don’t need to practice the sunnah – it’s an option. I cant pray at work my boss will get upset. I cant grow my beard or my wife will curse me….my mum will throw me out….I cant get a job….so on, so on…etc.

The question is ‘WHO ARE WE- What type of Muslim are we???’ If you want to make a difference by ‘Boycotting’ then:-

Boycott Interest
Boycott Usury
Boycott Alcohol
Boycott Tobacco
Boycott Drugs
Boycott mortgages – interest
Boycott loans
Boycott Insurance
Boycott ALL Haraam earnings
Boycott ALL doubtful/haraam food
Boycott EXTRAVAGANT WEDDINGS
Boycott EXTRAVAGANT holidays
Boycott zina of the eyes
Boycott zina of the tongue
Boycott zina of the ears
Boycott haraam relationships
Boycott EXTRAVAGANT lifestyles
Boycott music
Boycott backbiting
Boycott slander
Boycott adultery
Boycott fornication
Boycott clubbing
Boycott going out without hijaab
Boycott intermingling of genders
Boycott EVER MISSING A SALAH
Boycott disobedience of parents
Boycott disrespecting husband’s
Boycott ill treating wives
Boycott Wasting hours on whatsapp
Boycott wasting hours on Twitter
Boycott wasting hours on FB/Instagram etc
Boycott spending hours on PS4/xbox
Boycott NATIONALISM
Boycott leaving the SUNNAH
Boycott leaving the SHARIAH
Boycott ALL FORMS OF HARAAM InshaAllah!!!

Change yourself my brothers and sisters. Make your deen like a strong pillar – a fortress – of imaan.

May Allah Give us the true understanding and grant us the success to practice and guide us on the true path till our final abode Jannah in Akhirah (Ameen).

ZINA-SWIMMING

ZINA-SWIMMING – SHAITAAN’S SUNNAH PROMOTED BY MOLVI AGENTS OF IBLEES

Explaining the incredible and shocking indulgence of Molvis in immorality – fisq and fujoor – a concerned parent from Pietermaritzburg laments:
“As a concerned parent, I would like to know if swimming is permissible if there is no segregation of boys and girls. I do not like to judge but there is an Aalim, Moulana Saliem, in our community in Pietermaritzburg, who teaches swimming to our Muslim children. However, he does not separate the boys and girls, and some of these children are at the age of marriage. They all swim together and have conversations in between their swimming sessions.

The parents, mostly mothers, are allowed to sit and watch their children and this moulana also goes to the mothers and have chit chat with them in public view.

There is also another Aalim, Moulana Moosa from the same area, who goes to the pool and decides that it is correct to learn how to swim among hundreds of non- mahram woman and girls. Moulana Saliem also makes these innocent children participate in swim competitions like the Midmar Mile which is to take place next month at the Midmar dam.

Apart from all the nudity at the event There are thousands of swimmers who take part in this race. Men and women all swim together and this Aalim also participates in this competition with his swimmers. There is also another Aalim from the same community to add to the list who swims in this competition.

We look up to these moulanas in our community, so I would like to know if this is the correct thing which these learned people are doing as these moulanas are the high profile of our community. Moulana Saliem is part of the Jamiatul Ulama KZN, and an Imaam in a Masjid. Moulana Moosa is part of a Darul Uloom in Pietermartizburg – Madrasah Tarteelul Quraan.

Can people follow these Moulanas in Namaaz and can we take their advices? (End of the parent’s letter)
COMMENT

The level of degradation into the dregs of the cauldron of immorality and zina is shockingly lamentable. By no stretch of Imaani understanding can these molvis be described as ‘Aalims’. In fact they are juhala of the worst kind. They are fussaaq and fujjaar of the worst order. They are Satanists.

It is incredible to fathom – it is beyond even the imagination of conscious Muslims that molvis who are regarded to be part of the Ulama Fraternity indulging in zina so flagrantly in full public view. It is difficult to accept that they are even Muslims. It is not possible for people of Imaan, even for fussaaq and fujjaar, to denude themselves of every vestige of Imaani haya to organize, participate and promote even 3 year old boys and girls to swim together. But here in Pietermaritzburg, molvis linked to Madaaris and Musaajid are most brazenly and flagrantly promoting zina in the pools loaded with fisq and fujoor.

When it is not permissible to even view the garments of a female, it defies Imaani imagination to even attempt imagining Muslim boys and girls, men and women swimming together. While such filth is understandable for non-Muslims, such zina lewdness is incomprehensible regarding Muslims even in this age in close proximity to Qiyaamah. Are these molvis Muslims? They appear to be munaafiqeen masquerading as Muslims. They come within the purview of Allah’s castigation:

“The A’raab (rural village-dwellers) say: ‘We have Imaan.’ Say (O Muhammd to them): ‘You have no Imaan. Rather say: ‘We have submitted (i.e. accepted Islam superficially) whilst Imaan has not entered into your hearts.” (Al-Hujuraat, Aayat 14)

These molvis who brazenly and flagrantly promote ZINA by condoning and participating in the mass perpetration of immoral nudity in the water by men and women, kuffaar and Muslims alike, are in the same class as these A’raab whose Imaan Allah Ta’ala denies. How is it possible for even fussaaq and fujjaar Muslims to promote and believe that such zina nudity is halaal? Aggravating the immoral villainy of their kufr is their parading as ‘ulama’ whilst in reality they are agents of Iblees.

These molvis also come within the scope of the Qur’aanic Aayaat which revile the Munaafiqeen. Allah Ta’ala says:

“And, from among the people are those who say: ‘We believe in Allah and the Last day.’, whilst (in reality) they are not Mu’mineen. They deceive Allah (in their stupid opinion) and the people of Imaan. However, they deceive only themselves.

In their hearts is a disease (of nifaaq). Therefore Allah increases their disease, and for them there is a painful punishment because of their lies.”

(Al-Baqarah, 8 and 9)

The shameless fisq and fujoor (immorality/obscenity and satanic promiscuity) of these molvis is absolutely mind-boggling. How is it possible for such immoral scoundrels to be members of Jamiatul Ulama KZN. Is the Jamiat’s leadership so blind or so utterly uncaring of Allah Ta’ala and His Deen that they are unable to see and understand the gravity of the fisq and fujoor bordering on kufr of their molvi members who promote ZINA publicly?

“The (physical eyes) are not blind. But the hearts within the breasts are blind.” (Qur’aan)
Toleration and acceptance of the brazen acts of immorality of the molvis are the effect of the spiritual blindness mentioned in this Qur’aanic Aayat.

The vile and filthy public misdeeds of these molvis accord greater credibility and clarity to the tafseer of a Hadith presented by a Faqeeh. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Soon shall there dawn an age when………the worst of the people under the canopy of the sky will be their ulama. From them will emerge fitnah and the fitnah will rebound on them.”

The Faqeeh commenting on this Hadith said that ‘under the canopy of the sky’ are also the Yahood, the Nasaara, the Mushrikeen, dogs and pigs. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) categorised these exceptionally evil movis as worse than all of these creations. Thus those molvis who are in this satanic game of promoting nudity and zina so blatantly are worse than even khanaazeer.

Their public and flagrant promotion of and participation in the swimming ZINA cannot be by error. Their Satanism is pre-planned and by design. It is a palpable denial of the entire concept of Hijaab revealed by Allah Ta’ala.

If they had an iota of Imaan, they would have trembled with fear even if their zina shenanigans were perpetrated in privacy. But these villains and vile scoundrels propagate their zina in full view of the public.

Their recklessness in the public perpetration of immorality and zina has emboldened many Muslim women to act as lesbians. These shaitaani females following in the shaitaani footsteps of the evil molvis have denuded themselves of every semblance of Imaani haya, hence they are able to shamelessly spectate the acts of nudity and zina which the illegitimate progeny of Iblees has organized in the form of the filthy mixed men and women swimming functions.

These people – the evil molvis and the spectators – are all mal-oon and maghdoob – Allah’s la’nat and ghadhab settle on them every second of their participation in the molvi-organized zina swimming shaitaaniyat. Modesty and bashfulness for doing even what is permissible, are integral constituents of Imaan. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Haya is a branch of Imaan.” Thus, for even a Muslim male to leave his elbows exposed, to eat in the public, to laugh loudly, to be dressed with only a T-shirt in public, and in general to do any act which Islamically is considered khilaaf-e-murawwat (uncultural) are in conflict with Imaani hayaa despite the initial permissibility of such acts which are regarded to be trivialities. But in Islam habitual commission of even ‘trivialities’ culminates in major sins.

The illegitimate progeny of Iblees – those who prostitute the haya and chastity of Muslim women under Deeni guise with the monstrous LIE that swimming is ‘Sunnat’ for them, and that too by denuding themselves in public – are devilishly oblivious of the faintest idea of the meaning of Imaani Haya, hence their brazen indulgence in and promotion of the grotesquely obscene zina-swimming act, the toxity of which is of a satanically aggravated nature.

What is Imaani Hayaa and Ghairah? The following Hadith will serve as edification for the satanized brains of these vile molvis:

“Hadhrat Sa’ad Bin Ubaadah (Tadhiyallahu anhu) said: ‘I will not hesitate killing my wife with a sword should I see her with another man.”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Only a person with a darkened heart is deprived of ghairah.”

These fussaaq and fujjaar molvis are totally deprived of Imaani haya and ghairah. Their hearts are darkened with the zulmat of kufr. Never in the history of Islam was immorality of this nature committed. There is no precedent in Islam for semi-nude Muslim males and females immorally swimming together under molvi supervision.

Once Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) asked: “What is best for women.” No one was able to proffer an answer. Hadhrat Ali (Radhiyallahu anhu) went to his wife, Hadhrat Faatimah (Radhiyallahu anha) and posed the same question. This illustrious Daughter of our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the Queen of Jannat, responded:

“No man should see her, and she should see no man.”

On hearing this grand response, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) commented: “Faatimah is a portion of me.”

Imaani Hayaa demands that a man should not unnecessarily look at even a fully clad woman – clad with burqah and niqaab, nor should a woman unnecessarily look at a ghair mahram man. Imaani Hayaa demands that a man should not look at even the dead body of a woman enshrouded in FIVE sheets. To safeguard this lofty concept of Imaani Hayaa, the enshrouded body of the deceased woman is further screened from the gazes of men by a screen drawn over the female’s enshrouded body as it is lowered in the Qabar. But, what do we find today in our midst?

Thoroughly satanized molvis – human shayaateen – men with the hearts of wolves – goading Muslim women to appear semi-nude into the public domain to mingle with semi-nude males in pools to swim together while being spectated by a crowd of men and women devils – male devils and females devils. And, they have the treacherous temerity of promoting all of this ZINA as ‘sunnah’!!! They should cleanse the surface of this earth of their filth and villainy by drowning themselves.

The swimming which these shaitaani scoundrels depict as ‘sunnah’ is a Kabeerah sin of the worst order. In fact, for these villainous scoundrel molvis, it is KUFR. Salaat behind these treacherous human shayaateen is not valid. They are not fussaaq of the humdrum class predominating this era, who understand their misdeeds to be sins for which Taubah is imperative. These human shaitaan molvis are guilty of irtidaad. Renewal of Imaan is imperative.

These are the types of molvis who, according to the Hadith, will be compelled in Jahannam to circumambulate their own intestines which will be extracted from their bodies and cast in front of them for making tawaaf.

What has happened to the other Ulama of Pietermaritzburg? What has happened to the Jamiat KZN? Having receded into the fortress of silence, they have demonstrated that they are the very ‘dumb devils’ about whom Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“He who is silent regarding the Haqq, is a dumb shaitaan.”

It is haraam to have these shayaateen as members of the Jamiat. It is haraam for the trustees to permit these evil molvis to be Imaams.

These villainous scoundrel molvis, the Musjid trustees and the Jamiat are all Signs of the Impending Hour of Qiyaamah. They flagrantly violate Allah’s Laws and shamelessly abstain from Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahyi Anil Munkar for the attainment of their corrupt motives. They pillage and plunder Amaanat (Trust). About these ulama-e-soo’ and trustees bonded to their nafs being Signs of Qiyaamah, it is mentioned in the Hadith:

“Someone asked: ‘When shall be the Hour (of Qiyaamah)?’ Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When Amaanat (Trust) is destroyed, then await the Hour.” He was asked: ‘How will Amaanat be destroyed?’ Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When affairs (of trust) are assigned to those who are unfit (to bear the Trust), then await the Hour.”

Today thoroughbred scoundrels and abusers of Amaanat are acting as Imaams of Musjids, as Ustaadhs in Madaaris and as members of bodies such as Ulama Jamiats.

When such vile acts of fisq and fujoor – such acts of the prostitution of haya and chastity are so flagrantly perpetrated by men who are supposed to be the spiritual guides of the Muslim community, then Muslims have to understand and be in anticipation of the imminence of the Hour of Qiyaamah.

HOW TO TEACH SEX EDUCATION TO MUSLIM CHILDREN

Q. How should a child be taught subjects of a sexual nature? How should he / she be informed of prohibited and permissible acts, about masturbation, zina, etc.? What age would be proper to teach them about these issues?
A. Western influence has prompted you to ask this question. The western kuffaar are immorally obsessed with sex, hence they satanically fabricate sex ‘education’ for children.
How did you gain knowledge of these sexual issues? How did the millions and billions of children from the time of Nabi Aadam (Alayhis salaam) acquire this knowledge? In the same way as you and us all acquired this knowledge, so too will all other children until the Day of Qiyaamah acquire it. Do not burden your brains with copro-stupidities.

FUNCTIONS AND PARTIES

HARAAM FUNCTIONS AND PARTIES OF THE PROSTITUTES

Among the letters of indignation and shock regarding a zina-porno party being organized by a Devil so-called ‘mufti’ as a fund-raising stunt, a Brother writes:

“The mufti of our town who is the Amir of a local Muslim school is having a fund-raising comedy show called “Bash with Tash”. This is a female Hindu comedian. The show is restricted to females, but it has an 18 year age restriction because of the pornographic content of the jokes, etc. Please comment on this.”
THE SHARIAH’S COMMENT

This Rubbish so-called ‘mufti’ is Shaitaan-Incarnate. He must surely be a khuntha whose brains are incorrigibly messed up with a mass of indurate shaitaaniyat. Only a man who is bereft of Imaan has the shaitaaniyat to so brazenly exhibit his shaitaaniyat as this copro-porno devil’s ‘mufti’ has perpetrated.

With the approach of Qiyaamah, the haraam functions of munaafiqaat prostitutes and lesbians masquerading as Muslims, are on the increase. This development is entirely in consonance with the predictions of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) heralding the advent of Qiyaamah.

Immorality, sexual perversity and filth of every abominable conceivable kind will necessarily be the incumbent prelude to the Final Hour. In the Muslim community, all over the world, nowadays women’s zina-type functions are brazenly organized and advertised. One such zina function is dubbed ‘Ladies Brunch’ where the satansim which will be presented is called ‘Bash with Tash’.

These miserable ‘brunch’ women, born to be evil, do not have the faintest idea of the meaning of ‘brunch’, hence they proudfully advertise their ‘brunch’ rubbish and filth. ‘Brunch’ used to be the term describing the fees prostitutes charged for their devilish services. Since they are incorrigibly evil, lewd and immoral – rotten to the core with the fitnah of carnal lust – they revel in their zina ‘bash with tash’. No wonder that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that the vast majority of the inmates of Hell-Fire are women. They are most certainly women of the ‘brunch’ and ‘hijabs off’ kind who swoon in their drunken state of ‘bash with tash’ and nudity with ‘hijabs off’, and satanic ‘music on’.

The fact that they disallow women under 18 – women who are of marriageable age – from participating in their evil, stinking parties, speaks volumes for the shaitaaniyat and immorality which are the prime features of their evil functions. The evil of their parties is so abominable that it constrains these filthy vixen and vermin to debar 17 year old women from attending.

It is indeed shocking that the ‘brunch’ zina function is being conducted under the auspices of the ‘Islamia Muslim School’. There cannot be any Islam in this school, hence the zina party is encouraged.

About another function organized by these vile zaaniyaat, they most audaciously and immorally in kuffaar style, braying like donkeys, in a disgorgement of zina language, scream: “Music on-Hijabs off”. Then, adding filth to filth, they have the rude and naked temerity of saying that their zina stunts are ‘halal’.

These zaaniyaat have even arranged for a ‘bar’ as a feature of their zina stunt-function. While they claim that their ‘bar’ will serve ‘non-alcoholic’ drinks, the very wine-term, i.e. ‘bar’, reveals the filth in their brains and hearts. They are just as a person who says that his father commits adultery with his mother. Whilst the father’s indulgence in relations with the vile man’s mother is halaal, to describe such lawful conjugal relations of his father and mother with the term ‘zina’ betrays the evil and the kufr in the heart of this satanic person.

These zaaniyaat at their ‘music on-hijabs off’ function are the progeny of Iblees. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has described women in general as Habaailush Shaitaan (Traps of the Devil). But these ‘music on-hijabs off’ filth, are worse than traps of shaitaan. They are she-devils parading as ‘muslim’ women. There is not a semblance of Islam in these zaaniyaat.

Another group of Shaitaanas in league with the shayaateen of the ‘Mountain Rise Madrasah’ organized their party dubbing it: ‘Connecting the lover with the beloved.’ In reality the connection is with Iblees executed under guise of the Deen. They make a mockery of the Ambiya (Alayhimus salaam) by making comparisons between the immoral kuffaar love affairs and the relationships between the Ambiya and their wives. They are indeed grovelling in the filth of the sewer drains where the rats dwell and revel.

Today the madrasahs have also become haunts for the propagation of satanism, fisq and fujoor.

The women masquerading as Muslims are setting the stage for the heinous public perpetration of zina predicted in the Hadith. These women and their immoral male cohorts who are aiding and supporting them in their filth are the type mentioned in the Hadith – the type of vermin earmarked for disfigurement and transformation into swines and apes.

These zaaniyaat-faajiraat have descended to levels of shamelessness unknown to even swines. While swines are proverbial for shamelessness, there are no adequate pejorative terms to adequately describe the shamelessness and lewdness of these ‘brunch’, ‘bash with tash’, and ‘music on-hijabs off’ Habaailish Shaitaan who have not only denuded and prostituted their physical bodies. The denudation of their physical bodies and their immoral acts and conduct loudly testify to not only the deracination of their Imaani hayaa (sharam / modesty / shame),but glaringly reveals the deracination of their Imaan, if ever they had been Muslims in the meaning of the Qur’aan and Sunnah.

About women and even men of the filthy satanic calibre who organize zina functions and parties, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that whilst the ‘hijabs will be off’, and the ‘music is on’, whilst these illegitimate progeny of Iblees will be enjoying themselves with their swinish acts of music, dancing, merrymaking and zina, then, LO!, suddenly they will find themselves transformed into apes and swines.

Let it be known that these types of gutter-sewer women have already been metaphysically transformed into swines and apes. Their shocking shamelessness and immorality perpetrated in the public domain confirm that their hearts and brains have already become like that of pigs and apes. Now remains only the physical transformation which shall occur most assuredly when the Decree of Allah Azza Wa Jal is announced.

The other shocking facet of all this vile satansim enacted in the public, is the total silence of the so-called ulama. Their miserable mouths have been welded by shaitaan, hence they come fully within the purview of the hadith: “He who is silent regarding the Haqq is a dumb devil.” These molvis and sheikhs are like the Ulama and Ruhbaan of Bani Israaeel whose outstanding feature was abstention from Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahyi anil Munkar (Commanding virtue and prohibiting vice).
This disastrous combination, viz., public haraam performances of the swines and apes coupled to the silence of the Ulama and their abstention from Amr Bil Ma’roof, is a glaring Sign of the universal Athaab of Allah Azza Wa Jal. It forbodes the imminence of the Aam Athaab. This Athaab has already apprehended and afflicted certain Muslim communities. Those who are as yet untouched by Allah’s Punishment should not be snug in their hallucinated safety and opulence. They will soon hang by the Divine Rope, the noose of which is already around their necks.

“What, are the people of the cities confident that Our Punishment shall not overtake them during the night time whilst they are sleeping? What, are the people of the cities confident that Our Punishment will not overtake them during the daytime whilst they are indulging in sport? What, are they confidant regarding the Plan of Allah (that His planned punishment will not seize them)? Indeed, none but a community of losers has such confidence.” (Qur’aan)
“When We intend to destroy a place (city, town, village, etc.), We command its affluent transgressors (i.e. grant them respite). Then they proceed (recklessly) with their fisq (immorality) in the city. Then the decree (of the Punishment) is established for them. Then We utterly destroy them (with Our Punishment.)” (Qur’aan)
Describing this Athaab, the Qur’aan Majeed says:

“Everyone (of them), We apprehended for their sins. From among them are those on whom We sent (showers) of stones. And, among them are those whom the Mighty Scream apprehended. And among them are those whom We caused to be swallowed by the earth. And among them are those whom We drowned.” (Qur’aan)

Add to this, the supplement of the punishment of transformation into apes and swines mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

The Sin of Adultery and Fornication

 

Why is adultery/fornication so attractive?

 

attraction sin

Shaytan committed a sin through disobeying Allah with his arrogance; he thought he was better than Adam so he refused to obey Allah’s command that he bow to Adam. Hence, he incurred Allah’s Wrath. Instead of becoming humble, admitting his sin to Allah and seeking His (swt) repentance, he became even more stubborn, shameful, arrogant and revengeful. He blamed his misguidance on Allah and then asked Allah to delay his punishment so he could lead us astray. This is how he vowed to do so; shaytan said: “I will surely sit and wait for them (referring to humans) on your straight path, then I will come at them, from in front of them and behind them, from their right and from their left…’. (Quran Surah al-A’raf, Ayahs 11-18)

So do you see, it is Shaytan’s goal to lead us astray. He knows that fulfilling one’s sexual desires is a basic human need, and he also knows it is a sin to fulfil this need with anyone but our spouse, so he fuels our desire in order to blind us and make us fall.  It is reported that some of the Prophets said to Iblis, “By what did you defeat the son of Adam?” He said, “At the time of anger and at the time of desire”.

Allah warns us in the Quran (Surah Ibrahim, Ayah 22) by telling us that Shaytan has vowed to entice us and will then turn his back on us when we are held to account on the Day of Judgement by saying: “…Verily, Allah promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me (Shaytan) as a partner with Allah (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zalimoon (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.).”

So, I ask dear brothers and sisters – why oh why are we intent on pleasing Shaytan when he is out to deceive, destroy and betray us? Do we hold such little self importance that we will lower ourselves to something that will damage us so greatly?

The million dollar question: How can we prevent ourselves from giving into our base desires?

1] Seek protection with Allah from Shaytan, through verbal recitation and establishing prayer:

Allah says in Surah An-A’raf: 201: “Indeed those who fear Allah when an impulse touches then from Shaytan, they remember Him at once and they have insight.”

Allah further says in Surah Fussilat, Verse 36: “And if it comes to you from Shaytan an evil suggestion, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed He is the All Hearing, All Knowing”. So say: “I seek refuge with Allah from Shaytan the accursed.”

Strengthen your relationship with Allah, through establishing your obligatory acts of worship, five Salaah, Fasting in Ramadan, giving Zakah etc. Allah advises us in Surah Al-Ankabut, Verse 45, to establish Salaah as doing so will protect us from immorality: “Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do”.

2] Remember Allah is watching you:

Next time you have an urge to go into a closed off area to commit your sin, remind yourself of this hadith stated by the Prophet (saw) regarding ‘Ihsan’ (true righteousness):  “[Ihsan is] to worship Allah as though you see Him, and if you cannot see Him, then indeed He sees you.” (Al-Bukhari and Al-Muslim).

Would you feel embarrassed on doing such shameful disgusting deeds if you knew that Allah was watching? Well Allah is watching you and can see and hear your every sinful thought and sinful action. Allah warns us in Surah 43, Verse 80,  “Or do they think that We hear not their secrets and their private counsels?  Indeed (We do), and Our messengers are beside them to record”.

3] Do not belittle the sin, remember the enormity of it:

Remind yourself again and again that anything that leads to a sin is a sin itself: looking, flirting, sweet talking, touching, hugging, intimacy. Do not belittle these seemingly smaller sins: all of them are sins, leading to bigger sins and will cause grief, destruction and doom.

The Prophet (saw) said to Aisha (ra), “O ‘Aishah, abstain from the sins which are looked upon as trivial, for they too will be enquired about by Allah.”  (Ahmad)

Also another saying, “Beware of minor sins, for they will gather together on man so much so that they will kill him.”  (Ahmad)

Furthermore, if you try to console yourself by thinking, ‘Oh well, a bit of flirting, hugging, kissing etc is not actually the real act of zina, so it won’t hurt to do them’, then you are doing nothing but creating a false sense of security for yourself and living in delusion! As remember Allah warns us against coming anywhere near to zina as they lead to the evil way! “And come not near to the  unlawful sexual intercourse. Verily, it is a Fahishah [i.e. anything that transgresses its limits (a great sin)], and an evil way (that leads one to Hell unless Allah forgives him).” (Surah Al-Isra,Verse 32)

Some scholars say that the ‘other’ haraam physical intimacies of the relationship are in fact classified as ‘zina’. In a hadeeth narrated by Muslim, the Prophet (saw) warns us: “The zina of the eyes is looking, the zina of the ears is listening, the zina of the tongue is speaking, the zina of the hand is touching and the zina of the foot is walking. The heart wishes and and longs and the private part confirms that or denies it.”  Ibn Battaal (ra) also said: “Looking and speaking are called zina because they invite one to true zina. He then said: “the private part confirms that or denies it.”

4] Remember you are a disbeliever at the time of committing adultery!

The Prophet (saw) said: “No adulterer is a believer at the time when he is committing adultery.” Narrated by Al-Bukhaari (2475) and Muslim (57).

He (saw) also said: “If a man commits zina, faith comes out of him and hovers over him like a cloud, then when he stops, faith returns to him.” Narrated by Abu Dawood (4960) and al-Tirmidhi (2625);

So you are in a state of disbelief when committing adultery! Furthermore, the acts leading to it have also been labelled as zina in the above hadiths, so even during committing those ‘other’ acts, your iman is in a state of doubt. That leads on to the next frightening point, what if….

5] Imagine, ‘what if’ your soul is taken while you are in that state of disbelief?!

Allah warns us in the Quran (Surah As-Sajdah, Verse 11): “…The Angel of Death, who is set over you, will take your souls, then you shall be brought to your Lord”.

There are angels who torture the wrongdoers at the time of death: “If only you could see, when the angels take the souls of those who disbelieve, the angels are beating their faces and their backs.” (Qur’an Surah Al-Kahf, Verse 50)

6] Think of what the grave consequence of your sins could be:

You will have displeased Allah greatly, thereby losing out on multiple blessings during your life on earth.  You may have to face shame and dishonour. You may lose close friends. Upon realising your sin, you will feel pain, shame, grief, depression; you will experience negativity, loneliness and bitterness. You may have to live with knowing you broke someone’s marriage, thereby incurring the curse of the ex wife, or you may catch a sexually transmitted disease. And these are just some of the worldly consequences. The pain in the Hereafter to come will be incomparable to anything you could ever imagine.

7] Warn yourselves, there is no hiding; the angels are recording our every action, word and thought:

Allah Most High also tells us, “For each (person) there are angels in succession in front of him and behind him, who guard him by Allah’s command.”  (Qur’an, Surah Ar-Ra’d, Verse 11).

“And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein when the two receivers [i.e. recording angels] receive [record each word and deed] seated on the right and on the left.  He does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record]. (Qur’an, Surah Qaf, Verses 16-18)

“And indeed, [appointed] over you are keepers (angels who preserve the deeds of men in records) noble and recording, they know whatever you do.” (Qur’an, Surah Al-Infitaar, Verses 10-12)

8] Warn yourselves, that on the Day of Judgement, all our sins will be laid bare for all to see:

“Every person is held responsible for his [or her] deeds. On the Day of Resurrection We shall bring out for him a scroll which he will see spread open. (He will be ordered): Read your own record; It is sufficient that you judge yourself today.” (Surah Bani Israel 17:13-14)

We will feel embarrassment and shame comparable to none we have ever felt on earth. Imagine our family and friends seeing all the sins we have committed, imagine them seeing the zina that has been indulged in, all the sins of our bare flesh, every evil taken on by every limb, every look, every thought.  It will be as though our personal autobiographies have been caught on film from puberty till this day with our intentions displayed on a high definition cinema screen.

What are you thinking? Is your body not shivering with fear at the thought? I am sure it is and yet you have no idea how much you will be exposed on that day, unless Allah accepts your repentance through His Immense Mercy. If you are not shivering with fear, then my dear brother/sister, you are most definitely suffering from a spiritual disease of the heart and need help. (There is a cure though: turn back to Allah).

9] Fear the Sirat, The Bridge on the Day of Judgement:

The Messenger of Allah(sws) said about the bridge: “So the hooks over that bridge will be like the thorns of As-Sa-dan except that their greatness in size is only known to AllahThese hooks will snatch the people according to their deeds. Some people will be ruined because of their evil deeds, and some will be cut into pieces and fall down in Hell, but will be saved afterwards, when Allah has finished the judgments among His slaves, and intends to take out of the Fire whoever He wishes to take out from among those who used to testify that none had the right to be worshipped but Allah.” (Sahih Bukhari- Volume 8, Book 76, Number 577)

Also: Narrated by Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri: “We, the companions of the Prophet said, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is the bridge?‘ He said, “It is a slippery (bridge) on which there are clamps and (Hooks like) a thorny seed that is wide at one side and narrow at the other and has thorns with bent ends. Such a thorny seed is found in Najd and is called As-Sa’dan. Some of the believers will cross the bridge as quickly as the wink of an eye, some others as quick as lightning, a strong wind, fast horses or she-camels. So some will be safe without any harm; some will be safe after receiving some scratches, and some will fall down into Hell. The last person will cross by being dragged over the bridge.” (Sahih Bukhari- Volume 9, Book 93, Number 532)

If thats not bad enough, what if apart from wronging yourself, you have wronged someone else through your sin, and have not sincerely sought their forgiveness or they have not forgiven you? You will have to face them on the bridge in the Hereafter, as one of the questions we will be asked when crossing this bridge will be about the rights of humans, the rights of parents, and whether one took care of one’s relatives. So what if you used someone sexually and dumped her/him, what if you destroyed someone’s marriage, what about his/her ex? Have you sought their forgiveness?

10] Remember that in the court of Allah Most High we will not only receive our books with our deeds present but our bodily organs will also testify against us on that Day:

Allah says in Surah An-Nur, Verse 24: “On the Day when their tongues, their hands, and their legs or feet will bear witness against them as to what they used to do”.

“Till, when they reach it (Hell-fire), their hearing (ears) and their eyes, and their skins will testify against them as to what they used to do.  And they will say to their skins, “Why do you testify against us?” They will say: “Allah has caused us to speak, as He causes all things to speak, and He created you the first time, and to Him you are made to return”. And you have not been hiding against yourselves, lest your ears, and your eyes, and your skins testify against you, but you thought that Allah knew not much of what you were doing. And that thought of yours which you thought about your Lord, has brought you to destruction, and you have become (this Day) of those utterly lost!” (Qur’an, Surah Fussilat, Verse 20-23)

11] Remember the punishments that await those who have committed these sins:

The Prophet (saw) warned: “If one of you were to be stabbed in the head with a piece of iron it would be better for him than if he were to touch a woman whom it is not permissible for him to touch.” (Reported by al-Tabaraani; see also Saheeh al-Jaami, 5045).

This refers to the punishment for just touching, so how about worse deeds, such as embracing and kissing, and even worse kinds of illicit activity? Shudder at the thought!

Punishments liable for the one who confesses or is proven guilty of committing zina: The first revelation concerning the punishment of zina was that a woman guilty of zina was to be confined to her home until she died: “And those of your women who commit illegal sexual intercourse, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them (i.e. women) to houses until death comes to them or Allah ordains for them some (other) way”. (An-Nisaa, Verse: 15).

The next ayah says: “And the two persons (man and woman) among you who commit illegal sexual intercourse, punish them both”. (An-Nisaa, Verse16).

Allah (s.w.t) then revealed in Surah An-Nur, Verse 2 (which is known to be an abrogation of Ayah 15 in Surah an-Nisa): “The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment.”

The Messenger of Allah (sws) clarified this injunction by saying: “Take from me; Allah has made a decree for them.  A virgin (committing zina) with a virgin: one hundred lashes (for each) and exiling for one year (for the man).  And a married (committing zina) with a married: one hundred lashes and stoning.”(Saheeh Bukhari)

What are you thinking? That you can take the lashing? Just a few whips and that is? Wake up Oh Muslim, the shame and the pain would be unbearable! And the stoning would be the end of you!

All that is just a drop in the ocean, compared to the punishments for the sinner in the next life: The Prophet (sws) has told us of the punishment that those who commit zina will receive in their graves before the Hour begins, and that they will be punished with fire; narrated by al-Bukhaari (1320).

Allah Most High says in Surah Al-Furqan, Verses 68-69: “And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such life as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse – and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. The torment will be doubled to him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace”.

12] Lower our gaze and cover our adornment in front of non-mahrams:

Allah advises us in Surah An-Nur, Verse 30-31: Verse 30: “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.”

Verse 31: “And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like palms of hands or one eye or both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms, etc.) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husband’s sons, their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful”.

The Prophet (saw) said, “…do not let a second look follow the first. The first look is allowed to you but not the second.” [Ahmad, Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi]. What this means is that the first look is by accident. If this happens then do not take a second look.

The Prophet (saw) also said that, “the eyes also commit adultery by looking at someone with lust.” [Bukhari]

13] Do not make our voices seductive or sweet in front of non-Mahrams:

This is done by lowering the voice and not flirting. As Allah tells the wives of Prophet Muhammad (saw) in Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 32: “…do not be pleasant of speech, lest one in whose heart there is a disease should feel desire for you…”

14] Do not ever be alone with a non-mahram:

The Prophet (saw) forbade men and women from being alone together.  He (saw) said: “Never is a man alone with a woman except that Satan is the third party with them”.

This refers to unnecessary talking via email, text and phone as well.

15] Have faith in Allah that He will help us:

This is one of the most important points, but I purposely left it till the end as I wanted to remind you that the Prophet(saw) said ‘tie your camel first then put your trust in Allah’. Meaning, make the effort to implement the practical advice Allah has given you through the Quran and Sunnah, then have faith that He(swt) will help you through.  So do not think to yourself: ‘I’ll just go watch a movie with my boyfriend/girlfriend one more time, I can control myself, nothing will happen, I’m strong enough,’ and then expect nothing to happen – because you know it will and you’ll have no-one to blame but ‘yourself’. So do the right thing and avoid being alone with them in the first place and then make dua for Allah to make you strong to be steadfast in this.

The Sin of Adultery and Fornication

ST. VALENTINE’S DAY-THE DAY OF ZINA

“ST. VALENTINE’S DAY” —
THE DAY OF ZINA
OF ALL THE kuffaar days of festival and money-making such as Christmas day, mother’s day, father’s day, ghost’s day, shaitaan’s day, etc., the worst and most immoral is the festival day called St. Valentine’s Day. It is the most immoral occasion because it is a festival of zina (fornication) from beginning to end – in idea, words and actions. The very conception of this occasion is deification and idolization of zina.
In addition to this accursed festival of zina being an act of fisq and fujoor, it is an act of kufr. Believing haraam to be halaal is kufr which eliminates Imaan. The basis and the edifice of this immoral kuffaar festival day which has been given greater impetus by its commercialisation, are the promotion of zina of the heart, zina of the mind, zina of the tongue, zina of the eyes, zina of the hands, zina of the legs and even the ultimate act of actual fornication/adultery.
The most lamentable development of this festival of zina in regard to Muslims is the degree of Muslim indulgence in it. Muslims flagrantly participate in the zina acts and paraphernalia of this satanic festival as if it is a ‘blessed’ occasion permitted by Islam. The wide-scale participation in this day of zina has so thoroughly desensitised the Imaani conscience of Muslims that even the learned ones who are supposed to guide the community have grown accustomed to it. Parents observe and allow their children at secular schools to totally immerse themselves in the satanic aura and effects of the zina culture of this particular day of fornication.
It is indeed lamentable in this era to explain to Muslims, in an attempt to make them understand that Islam does not permit zina in any form whatsoever. Many Muslims who have completely lost their Imaani bearings regard this day of zina to be a day of ‘innocent’ and light-hearted ‘fun’. Zina has now become acceptable to numerous Muslims. While modernist Muslims still have some, not much, inhibition for the actual act of zina (fornication / adultery), they have no qualms and no reservations about the multitude of introductory stepping stones which lead to zina proper. Yet the Qur’aan Majeed prohibits, not only zina but all acts leading to zina. Thus the Qur’aan Shareef warns: “Do not approach zina”. The approaches of zina which are all haraam, are all such acts which have the potential of inciting sexual passion. Thus, intermingling of sexes, speaking to the opposite sex, looking at the opposite sex, solitude with the opposite sex, saying even Assalamu Alaikum to the opposite sex, thinking or fantasizing of the opposite sex, lustful communication with the opposite sex, be it by letter, phone, etc., and every act which incites sexual passion and inclines one to the opposite sex are all described as the ‘approaches of zina’ which the Qur’aan declares haraam. In fact a woman applying perfume and passing in proximity of males is termed an adulteress in the Hadith. Similarly, a man who intentionally derives sexual pleasure from the putrid zina ‘fragrance’ of a perfumed woman passing by him commits zina of the nose and of the heart..
Despite all strictures of the Shariah on every shadow of zina, it has become difficult for even supposedly practising Muslims to understand the villainy, immorality and zina of the shaitaani St. Valentine’s Day.
The satanic zina cards and other trimmings and trappings associated with this day of fornication on which large sums of money are squandered down the drain are the prime approach to the avenue zina on this haraam immoral festival day. The occasion is utilized to foster zina relationships. People – Muslims – are becoming increasingly brazen and flagrant in their exhibition of acts of zina. Added to the indulgence in zina of a variety of kinds, is the added hurmat (prohibition) of Tashabbuh Bil Kuffaar (Emulating the Kuffaar). This factor by itself prohibits participation in this evil occasion. Even if it be assumed that the occasion is devoid of zina. It is haraam to imitate the festivals and superfluous acts, practices and customs of the kuffaar. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Whoever emulates a people, he is of them.”
The contact with the opposite sex becomes more brazen on this shaitaani day. In fact, there is no tinge of conscience; no vestige of fear for Allah Ta’ala and no regard whatsoever for Islamic norm and culture to deter the fussaaq perpetrators of acts of zina on this day of zina.
Even an ignorant Muslims needs no Qur’aanic aayat nor any hadith to understand the immorality of the zina day called St. Valentine’s Day. There cannot be a Muslim – one who has even a flickering of Imaan in his/her heart – who fail to understand the prohibition and immorality of this immoral kuffaar festival. But desensitization of Imaan and total abandonment of the whole Hijaab culture of Islam have eliminated every inhibition, hence the brazen and shameless indulgence in the zina activities of this evil festival.
When the moral condition of Muslims degenerate to such an evil ebb that vice and immorality – fisq, fujoor and zina – are flagrantly committed and even regarded as being acceptable, it reveals the signs of the impending universal (aam) punishment of Allah Ta’ala. The silent Ulama who condone with their silence and misunderstood hikmat (wisdom), all the acts of fisq and fujoor which have become rife in the community, should reflect of the Qur’aanic warning:
“Beware of a fitnah (punishment) which will not overtake only the transgressors”.

SELLING FLOWERS
QUESTION
I am a florist. Is it permissible to take orders for weddings, parties, anniversaries, valentine’s day, funerals, etc.?
ANSWER
Selling flowers is permissible just as it is permissible to sell grapes, cloth, sugar, knives and numerous other items which are used for halaal as well as sinful and haraam activities. If the only use of an item is in sin, vice and evil, then it will be haraam to sell such an item even if the intention of the buyer is unknown and even if the buyer does not state the reason for buying. For example, televisions. Since pictures of animate objects is inseparable from television, dealing in it is haraam. On the other hand, the functioning of a radio is not dependent on pictures. It can be used for lawful and unlawful purposes. Thus to sell radios is permissible. The sin of misuse is on the buyer.
If it is known that the product will be used for haraam activity, then it will be haraam to sell it even if it is a halaal item, e.g. grapes. It is not permissible to sell grapes to a winery. It is not permissible for a farmer to even grow grapes to supply a winery. But if a manufacturer of wine comes to a Muslim’s market and buys all his grapes, then it will be permissible for the Muslim to sell him the grapes because he had no intention to sell grapes for making wine and also he did not expect the winery to buy his grapes. But to take an order from a winery for grapes, is not permissible. The buyer who buys grapes at the market from the general stock, in this case, is just as all usual clients are, who walk into the shop and buy.
These same principles govern the selling of flowers. If anyone comes into your shop and buys flowers for whatever purpose, it is permissible to sell to him/her. But it will not be permissible to take an order for making flower arrangements for specific haraam purposes. It is sinful to aid and abet in sin. The Qur’aan Majeed forbids this. Thus Allah Ta’ala states: “Do not aid one another in sin and transgression.”
On the basis of the aforegoing rules of the Shariah, the ruling for the specific acts mentioned by you are as follows:
(1) If a Muslim places an order for flower arrangement for a wedding in a hall or at any place where un-Islamic activities such as intermingling of sexes will take place, then it will not be permissible for you to take such an order. But if the same Muslim steps into your shop and selects flowers from your general stock, it will be permissible to sell to him/her. But it is not permissible to take an order for this specific purpose. If a non-Muslim orders flowers for a wedding, it will be permissible to take his/her order. Non-Muslims are not bound by the laws of the Shariah.
(2) If Muslims buy flowers for Eid occasions, it will be permissible to sell to them. But it is not permissible to take orders for making any specific flower arrangement because there is no flower-custom in Islam for Eid. But they may come and buy flowers. It is permissible to adorn one’s home with flowers.
(3) It is permissible to sell flowers and make flower-arrangements only for non-Muslims for their occasions of mother’s day, etc. But it is not permissible to do so for Muslims. But if a Muslim steps into your shop and buys flowers from your general stock for mother’s day, then he/she is guilty of the sin of misuse, not you.
(4) It is not permissible to take orders specifically for valentine’s day, whether the clients are Muslims or non-Muslim since this is a day of zina.
(5) Flower orders may be taken from only non-Muslims for birthdays and parties, not from Muslims.
(6) Flower orders for anniversaries and funerals may be taken from only non-Muslims, not from Muslims. It is bid’ah for Muslims to place flowers on the quboor.
(7) Flower orders may be taken from both Muslims and non-Muslims for occasions of illness and hospitals. Since the aim is to cheer up the patients, this is permissible.
(8) Flower orders may be taken if the customer does not specify the reason. He/she simply orders flowers and does not state the purpose. It is then permissible.
