Introduction to Gambling

Allah ta’aalaa has blessed us with innumerous gifts and favours, one of which is wealth. The Ahaadeeth of Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam encourage a Muslim to earn this favour of wealth through Halaal means and spend it in causes which bring the Pleasure of Allah. If Halaal wealth is a source of blessings, mercy, comfort, peace and tranquillity, then Haraam wealth will bring calamities, misfortunes and harm from all four sides.

Wealth acquired through gambling is unlawful and the Qur’aan and Ahaadeeth have condemned the act of gambling which brings loss, not only in the life Hereafter, but also in this very world. It is explicitly clear from the verses of the Qur’aan and the Ahaadeeth of Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that:

WHO POSSESSES THE RIGHT TO TELL US HOW WE SHOULD LEAD OUR LIVES?

In this world, there is no one who possesses the right to tell us how we should lead our lives. Not America, not Africa, not Russia not Japan! There is absolutely no one who has the right to tell us in which manner we should live our lives. The only one who possesses this right is Allah Ta’ala, Who bestowed His Beloved Rasul ( ), the Final Nabi, with this right also, because it is only by treading the path which leads to the pleasure and happiness of Allah Ta’ala, that a person can acquire peace and comfort in this world and the hearafter. If a person displeases Allah Ta’ala, his True Master, then there is no one in the entire world that can bring him peace and comfort. There is no power and might greater than Allah Ta’ala, Our True Master.

Laylatul Qadr

Amongst the nights of Ramadhaan there is one called “Laylatul Qadr” a night that is noted for its great blessings. The Qur’aan Kareem describes it as being greater in blessedness and spiritual virtue than a thousand months which in turn means that it is greater than eighty three years and four months.

Fortunate indeed is that person who attains the full blessings of this night by spending it in ‘ibaadah of Allah, because he has then attained reward for ‘ibaadah of eighty three years and four months and even more. Indeed the granting of this night to the faithful Muslim is a great favour.
