WORSE THAN THE CARTOONS

The publication of the insulting and offensive cartoons in Denmark is to be entirely expected from the enemies of Islam. About the hatred for the Muslims the Qur’an Majeed states: “O People of Imaan! Do not take as bosom friends (confidants) those besides your own people. They leave no stone unturned (to harm you). They desire that which will cause suffering to you. Verily, hatred (for you) has poured from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is worse. Verily, We have explained the Signs to you, if you indeed have intelligence.” (Surah Al-Imraan,
ayat 118).

There is therefore no need for Muslims to express surprise and astonishment when the kuffar desecrate our places of worship (like in India with the Babri Masjid) and insult our holy personalities with their blasphemous writings and drawings.

We as Muslims should understand that it is our own misdeeds that are worse than the cartoons of the enemies of Islam.

Worse than the insulting cartoons is the vile appearance of clean shaven faces of Muslim males. Such appearances are more abhorrent than the cartoons. While the kuffaar cartoons cause no hurt to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the razor the Muslim man puts to his face to shave his beard cuts at the heart of Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

Worse than the insulting cartoons are the women of Islam who have abandoned their homes for prowling on the streets like their shameless western counterparts. The wanderings in the streets and marketplaces, in flagrant violation of the Qur’aanic prohibition pain the heart of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), not so the insulting cartoons.

Worse than the insulting cartoons is the abandonment of Hijaab by Muslim men and women.

Worse than the insulting cartoons is the emulation of the styles and fashions of the kuffaar. Dressed in the styles of the enemies, the appearance of Muslims is worse than the appearance of the cartoons.

Worse than the insulting cartoons is the wholesale slaughter of the institution of Salaat by Muslims. Ninety percent of the Ummah have abandoned regular performance of Salaat. This destruction of the central pillar of imaan causes the greatest grief to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The cartoons controversy is
nothing compared to our wholesale abandonment of salaat.

Worse than the insulting cartoons are the droves of Muslim girls and boys attending the immoral secular institutions of western learning where Muslim female modesty and akhlaaq in general are prostituted.

Worse than the insulting cartoons are the Muslim women in long flowing gowns and Muslim men with beards and kurtahs frequenting the immoral dens of vice——-the casinos.

And worse than the insulting cartoons are the numerous other acts of flagrant transgression, immorality, treachery, dishonesty, riba, the consumption of haraam, etc. perpetrated by both the elite and the masses of this ummah.

In comparison to the gruesome insult Muslims pile on the Nabi and Islam, the insult of the cartoons is of a much lesser standard. Furthermore, the insult of the cartoons of the kuffaar causes grief to us Muslims, not to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). What hurts and grieves Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) every Monday and every Friday evening when the a’maal (deeds) of the Ummah are presented to him for viewing is the wholesale
massacre of the Shariah and the defilement of the Ahkaam of Allah Ta’ala committed by this rebellious and treacherous Ummah which claims to stand up to defend the honour of Allah’s Nabi.
