FIFA Bans Muslim footballer for Showing “Allah is great” on his T-shirt, After goal
Imaam Muslim (rahmatullahi alaihe) narrates on the authority of Anas Ibn Malik in the section of Al-Bir, ‘A person came in the presence of the Prophet Muhammad (sal) and asked: “When shall the Day of Judgement take place?” Upon this the Prophet of Allah questioned: “How have you prepared?”
The person answered: “I have prepared not, with an abundance of Salaah, Zakah or Saum. However, I do bear love for Allah and his Messenger “.
Hearing this the Prophet of Allah stated “You will be with whom you love.”
Anas Ibn Maalik reports upon hearing this statement the hearts of the Sahabah (Companion) melted and their eyes flowed relentlessly. He explains, ‘Since after our acceptance of Islam, we had never been happier then we had been on that day on which the Prophet (sal) stated “You will be with whom you love.”
Alas, if only we could compare to that. Apparently, the great enigma of this day and age is we love everything other than Allah and His Prophet (sal) . The non-believers have enchanted us through their devious tricks. Our hearts have hardened. We do not recognise the truth when in front of us! Contrary to the lives of the Sahabah our lives revolve around everything, but the teachings of the Prophet (sal). Presently, a cancer has infected our youth.
This cancer is football!
Football, over the years has expanded. Previously, it had been a harmless sport, in which twenty-two men kicked an inflated piece of leather, and presently it has become a monopoly in which the fan is completely brainwashed, conned and bewitched! Previously, a Muslim would relax by watching a match or two; presently, its an addiction.
To make my point clear on how the football factory’s psychological process in brainwashing the fan takes place, read on. Throughout this year, a satellite broadcasting company has been displaying a billboard in which the slogan ‘Football no longer remains a game. Football is a religion!’ was advertised. Whose religion? Mine? Yours? Negative!
Allah states in the Quran:
‘I have chosen for you Islam, as a religion.’
Many may claim that this slogan holds no real relevance. My brothers understand; think; psychologically we are being destroyed!
Islam on the other hand teaches that life is a grazing ground for the Hereafter; a test and a tribunal. By merging the first term (subject) and the second term (predicate) and omitting the syllogism (Had-e-ausat) he came to the conclusion (Major Term) that, ‘Football is life!’
Well, quite clearly this explains the mentality they have for life.
If you were to ask a typical (Muslim) football fan, “Name me your football team’s first eleven?” he would be able to name them with relative ease.
On the contrary, if he was to be asked far more serious Islamic matters, such as, “How many compulsory acts are there in Salaah and what are the consequences if you fail to comply with them?” The response would be a muted silence. If you were to ask him, “How many children did the Prophet (sal) have and how many wives he had etc.” the answer again would be a muted silence.
Apparently, these are the most primary and fundamental questions one can ask another. Our love for the Kuffar is manifest even over Islam,
A Hadith which should really soften the heart, is: Imam Bukhari (rahmatullahi alaihe) narrates on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (ral),
“That the Prophet of Allah has stated; “I swear by He, in whose hands my life lies, that none of you are true believers until I am not more beloved to him than his parents, children and the whole mankind.”
(Al Bukhari, Kitaab-ul-Imaan)
