Manchester United or Muslims United?

by AnonyMouse

Aaaaaaaaaaand he scores!!!!
Missed it? Shame. Don’t worry…all you have to do is simply log onto twitter, or check your recent status updates on BBM and you will figure out what happened.
A good friend of mine pointed out something recently. Why is it that half our contacts put up profile pictures of soccer heroes, cricket heroes etc. At the end

of the day, I am not saying that sport is Haraam. But the way we idolize it? Think about the derby this weekend. Apparently everyone had the profile picture of some guy who scored the goals. I have no problem with sport but look at the following aspects:
• How many times have we lowered ourselves to swearing and other vulgar behaviour when it comes to challenging another person from another team. A Muslim DOES NOT SWEAR. 
• How many times we proudly walk around, spending hundreds of Rands on team kits. When technically we have a pictures of a cross, or a devil right above our hearts. Then, when it comes to our Sunnah dressing, we shun it. 
• How many of us know the full history of the players mother, father, cousin, second step father’s pet dog…but do we even know the illustrious companions of our Nabi sallalahualayiwasalam? Nay…do we even know the fundamentals of Deen?
• How many sisters act like complete and utter cakes, yes I said it, cakes…when they oogle and look at the players on television? Newsflash…this is HARAAM. Allah says lower your gaze. Their satr(aura) is not even covered!
• How many times do we miss our Salaah because of some important game. Picture yourself on the day of Qiyaamat. When Allah asks why did you miss this Salaah on such and such a day, do you think the excuse that United was playing is going to be enough?
• How many times do we make statements like: ‘MY BLOOD IS BLUE LIKE CHELSEA, MY HEART IS FOR UNITED’. Come here ekse, let me slice you open and show you your blood is red and your heart is normal. When will we proudly say that the Sunnah flows through my blood, my heart is for my Allah?

Sit down and ask yourself, you proudly proclaimed this weekend that you loved RVP. Remember, whatever comes out of our mouth’s(typing included), WILL BE QUESTIONED ON THE DAY OF QIYAAMAH. When did we ever say I love you mummy, I love you daddy? 
Again, I am not saying that it is Haraam to follow sport. But seriously, this trend of giving our hearts, wallets and lives for this is contrary to the teachings of Shariah. Sadly, this has now permeated into the females of our society.
Whatever we truly love will reflect in our hearts. So we should choose wisely what we love…

I end of with a couple of excerpts from Maulana Yunus Patel(R.A) from his article on the world cup in South Africa, available fully here:http://www.yunuspatel.co.za/articles-world-cup-part1.php

HERO-WORSHIPPING

Allah Ta’ala has mentioned in the Qur`aan Sharief, in Surah Munafiqoon: “BUT HONOUR BELONGS TO ALLAH, HIS MESSENGER AND THE BELIEVERS...”

And in Surah An-Nisaa : ‘…TO THOSE WHO TAKE FOR FRIENDS UNBELIEVERS RATHER THAN BELIEVERS : IS IT HONOUR THEY SEEK AMONG THEM ? NAY, - ALL HONOUR IS WITH ALLAH.’

To deal honestly and truthfully with disbelievers or to assist the poor and needy amongst them, are from the teachings of Islam. However, to integrate with them in such a manner, that we lose our Islamic identity or give up on our Islamic culture is prohibited because it is inevitably extremely harmful to one’s Imaan. Many have given up Imaan and Islam due to very close friendship and relationship with those who do not believe in Allah Ta’ala, His Final Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa-Sallam) and the Day of Judgement.

…So we find people going crazy and wild over soccer players, cricket players and their likes. And one wonders, what is all the clamour and fuss about ?... when their “outstanding” achievement in life seems to be, kicking, throwing or hitting a ball…? Does this call for hero-worship? Is this our SHALLOW understanding of success as Muslims?

Do we not know that the most successful of all people are the Ambiyaa (Prophets) and their followers ? Are we even aware of the tremendous successes of the Sahabah ? They were MEN. And Brave Men. Their history, their feats, their conquests drown out the thousands of insignificant goals scored by soccer players.

We should reflect over our obsession, veneration and craze of film-stars, sport-stars and others who are presently the enemies of Allah Ta’ala. …A warning has been sounded, directing us to make sincere taubah.

Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur`aan Sharief : ‘O PEOPLE OF IMAAN! DO NOT TAKE MY ENEMIES AND YOUR ENEMIES AS FRIENDS, INCLINING TOWARDS THEM WITH LOVE. VERILY, THEY HAVE REJECTED THE TRUTH WHICH HAS COME TO YOU (FROM YOUR RABB)…’ [SURAH MUMTAHINA 60 : 1]

We seem to forget that we are Muslims and all Muslims have dangerous enemies: So whilst our enemies shrewdly convince us to spend thousands of Rands, waste our energy and time on useless, futile sports such as the World Cup, they gleefully bomb, kill, rape, oppress and harass our brothers and sisters in other parts of the world … but we are so intoxicated with World Cups that we don’t even know our enemies have deceived us.

Have we not witnessed enough enmity in Occupied Palestine, in Pakistan, Kashmir, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia and other parts of the world? Those who were considered friends and companions were the first to assault, kill, maim and even rape our Muslim brothers and sisters, for no other reason than that they are Believers in Allah Ta’ala. …Have we not taken any lesson ? Have we not witnessed blood of the Muslims flowing in Bosnia, like rivers ?

When we claim to have love for Allah Ta’ala, how then can we love these types of sporting events ?

Allah Ta’ala advises us : “O YOU WHO BELIEVE! TAKE NOT FOR FRIENDS UNBELIEVERS RATHER THAN BELIEVERS : DO YOU WISH TO OFFER ALLAH AND OPEN PROOF AGAINST YOURSELVES?” …In other words, we should not make them bosom pals. Once again, it does not mean that we should not treat them with kindness, deal honestly and assist when there is need. …However : Will participation and support in the World Cup attract them towards Islam ?

DRESS

Islam has gifted us with a dress code, which identifies us as Muslims – which makes us flag-bearers of Islam, representatives of Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa-Sallam), Inviters to Islam. We have been expressly forbidden from adopting any semblance with the cultural or religious dressing style of people of other faiths..

By wearing soccer t-shirts, caps, bags with the 2010 football logos clearly indicates our love for the event and the culture. Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa-Sallam) said: “The one who imitates others is not of us.” And: “Whoever imitates a nation is of them.”

We are the nation of Islam, and should be rightly proud of our beautiful culture and dress because it is the culture and dress of the greatest after Allah, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa-Sallam). …Is it not the height of foolishness to exchange diamonds for stones ?
8.) MIXED GATHERINGS

The disbelievers have no concept of segregation. They advocate mixed gatherings because it facilitates more sins and immorality. It works in their favour because there is easy gratification of sensual desires and sinful pleasures.

The Shariah instructs us : ‘IT IS NOT PERMISSIBLE TO BE PRESENT IN A GATHERING WHERE ALLAH TA’ALA IS BEING DISOBEYED.’

Hadeeth Newsflash

Reported by Abu Hurairah (RA): The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Allah, the Exalted, says: `I will contend on the Day of Resurrection against three (types of) people: One who makes a covenant in My Name and then breaks it; one who sells a free man as a slave and devours his price; and one who hires a workman and having taken full work from him, does not pay him his wages.'''
