Islam for Convenience

Islam for Convenience

 

In many instances, you will find that Islam is adopted only for

convenience and not due to the love of Islam. The airport has

salaah facilities, but this is out of convenience and not because of

their love for Islam as such. It is just there to gain support from the

Muslims while Islam is not of any concern to them. A bank displays

Islamic terms, but again it is not Islam that is of major concern,

rather it is the material gain.

 

Legitimising and Legalising

Asr majlis – Saturday 25tttth Zul Hijjah 1433 /10tttth November 2012

The entire effort nowadays is behind legitimising and legalising,

and looking for loopholes. Allah Ta‘ala knows what is being done

for greed and what is being done with sincerity.

The consequence of legitimising is very serious. The Bani

Israaeel were prohibited from fishing on Saturdays. As a loophole,

they would cast their nets on Fridays and draw them out on

Sundays, thus not practically fishing on Saturdays. However, the

consequence of this loophole was that they were transformed into

apes and monkeys.

In order to appease themselves, after adopting a loophole,

people then cite the names of certain personalities, but it is not a

matter of who says it. Instead, it is the weight of the argument that

really counts.
