Respect for Pictures of the Baitullah and the Raudha – Maulana Maseehullah رحمه الله

Respect for pictures of the Baitullah and the Raudha

Mubaarak

 

Maulana Maseehullah رحمه الله would not perform salaah on those musallahs that

had the pictures of the Ka’bah Shareef and the Raudha Mubaarak

on it. Once, when he was on journey in England, someone laid out a

Musalla for him to perform his salaah. The musalla had pictures of

the Kabah as well as the Raudha Mubaarak. He excused himself and

said, “I feel ashamed to place my feet on a musalla that has the

pictures of the Ka’bah Shareef and the Raudha Mubaarak.” He then˛

placed a plain sheet on the ground and performed his salaah upon.

At the same time one should keep in mind that Maulana Maseehullah رحمه الله

did not prevent others from performing salaah on such musallas.

This was his mizaaj, his temperament. Yet we understand from this

the special adab and respect he had for these mubaarak places.
