Mockery of Deen, By Moulana Yunus Patel RAHMATULLAH ALAY

There are many people who, despite their claims to Islam, seek to find fault with or disparage its teachings or beliefs, or make a mockery of Islam.

In the early days, we used to travel to India by boat. It took us 21 days to reach Bombay. During my third year, when I was travelling back to India, I met a doctor on board the boat.

In conversation he said to me: “Maulana, you people talk about the angels; that each person has an angel on his right shoulder and on his left shoulder and these angels record the deeds of a person. If this is the situation, then our shoulders would have been so broad that we would not have found a coat to fit us!

”In turn, I questioned him: “You must have attended school?”He replied : “Yes.”I asked: “From class one to matric?”He replied : “Yes.”I said : “You furthered your studies, doing medicine?”Again, he said : “Yes.”I continued: “You attended University, travelled to different countries? I am sure you remember all this?”

I said : “If I were to take you to your hometown, you will remember much. All this knowledge which you acquired during your life, through your studies and travels, where is it? It is stored in your brain.

Yet, if the situation is as you say it is, your head would have been so big that you would not have found a hat to fit it.

”Alhamdulillah, ALLAH Ta’ala put this response in my mind, which Insha-ALLAH, disproved the person’s crooked mentality and thinking.

…Sarcasm or cynicism in regards to Deen is extremely dangerous. It takes one to the threshold of Kufr; sometimes even out of the fold of Islam.

If a person says that he believes, it means that he hears and understands and accepts that there are many things which are beyond the human intellect.

Imaan is “bil ghayb” (in the unseen).

May ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA'ALAH) save us all from falling out of the fold of Islam آمِيْن يَارَبَّ
