Announcement: HARAAM SANHA-Sunday Times Emrabce

Posted by: TheMajlis

The Muslim Community of South Africa is by this time well aware of the blasphemous attitude and policy which the Sunday Times has displayed towards Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and towards Islam and the Muslim community in general. In several acts the Sunday Times has exhibited its hostility and animosity for Islam. In response, the Ulama of South Africa, barring of course, the NNB Jamiat which has turned into a Sunday Times lackey, have called for a Boycott of the Sunday Times in defence of the honour of our beloved Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Alhamdulillah, the Boycott has had an adverse monetary as well as a psychological effect on the publishers of the inimical Sunday Times.

A treacherous development in this saga is the announcement that SANHA, the so-called 'halaal authority' with its products of haraam certificates, has gone into a haraam embrace with the Sunday Times. SANHA, in addition to offering its assistance to the Sunday Times in an endeavour to assist that paper to reclaim some of its lost stature and to regain Muslim support, is taking advantage of the haraam liquor-zina food-show of the Sunday Times purely out of monetary concerns—to fill the coffers with more haraam money. SANHA has therefore entered into an unholy alliance and haraam embrace with the Sunday Times. It has decided to become a participant in the Sunday Times haraam food-show to offer its haraam wares and products for greater acceptability to the Muslim public—not primarily the local Muslim community, but for the export trade where the bulk of the haraam rands and dollars is generated by prostituting the Shariah in the shaitaani exercises of marketing haraam products as 'halaal'.

To enable the Muslim community to better comprehend what exactly the Sunday Times food-show is, and to gauge the extent of the notoriety and treachery of SANHA's embrace with haraam in flagrant violation of the prohibitions of the Shariah, we present some extracts from the program of the Sunday Times which advertises the Haraam function. Thus, in its program, the Sunday Times states:

“Our research shows us that they (i.e. South Africans) love food – and wine! – and they enjoy new trends.”

“The Sunday Times Food Show will also feature specific categories of interest, namely children's food, beverages (that includes haraam liquors), South African food, a (haraam) cigar lounge, a food theatre, a shebeen and a retail area.”

“Presenting The Sunday Times Food Show in association with Pick 'n Pay for everyone who loves eating, drinking (liquor), cooking and entertaining" (in zina exhibitions).”

“…..These include sumptuous dishes prepared by local and international celebrity chefs, inspirational shopping ideas, an abundance of wine and food tastings, a wide collection of beverage samplings, a food theatre and workshops.”

“Suzi Holtzhausen reveals the bounty of………..for a welcome drink of red muscadel…”

“…..explore the (zina) relationships between wine and food……………goats cheese and black olive ice cream….with wine tasting.”

The abundance of liquor is not the only immoral feature of fisq and fujoor which will adorn The Sunday Times Food-Show aided by the Israeli sponsor (Pick 'n Pay). Among the factors of fisq and fujoor which make the exhibition of Jaahiliyyah a nafsaani viability, a moral liability, and a function of Ghadb (Divine Wrath) and La'nat (Divine Curse) are liquor, music, promiscuous intermingling of the sexes, Muslim females emulating and vying with their kuffaar counterparts in lewd and immoral dress, Israaf (squandering) Allah's ni'mat (bounty) of money in a haraam exhibition of gross and crass jaahiliyyah; listening and applauding to the nonsensical chatter and blabbering of kuffaar celebrities; zina of the eyes, ears, hands and heart.

This list of Asbaab-e-Hurmat (Factors which render the food-show absolutely Haraam) is not exhaustive. These evil and immoral factors have been gleaned from the concise program issue by the sponsors of the haraam food-show. We can claim without hesitation that the exhibition will be attended by other haraam activities of fisq and fujoor which although have not been advertised, but which are imperative ingredients of all kuffaar merrymaking functions, parties and the like with which SANHA, the so-called 'halaal' authority has aligned itself in an embrace of haraam cohabitation.

The Hurmat of the factors of fisq and fujoor of this haraam food-exhibition are so absolute and flagrantly in contravention of the Qur'aan and Sunnah, that we can safely maintain without the slightest hesitation that a Muslim who believes that it is permissible to participate in this exhibition of Jaahiliyyah becomes a Murtadd by virtue of his corrupt belief of permissibility. The haraam acts adorning the evil function have been categorically banned by the Qur'aan and Ahaadith-e-Mutawaatarah even if perpetrated individually. The aggravating nature of the irtidaad is to believe that a whole conglomeration of haraam factors is halaal. There is therefore no doubt in the irtidaad of the SANHA officials who are consorting with The Sunday Times in this absolutely haraam exhibition of immorality.

The vilest dimension of SANHA's Irtidaad and Nifaaq, namely, its renunciation of Islam while overtly professing to be Muslim, is its abortive and kufr attempt to justify all the haraam activities with Qur'aanic verses in its satanic endeavour to lure stupid Muslims into the den of shaitaani immorality which the exhibition is all about.

In a dastardly and purely shaitaani attempt to justify the wine and pork of the Sunday Times Food Show, SANHA presents the following Qur'aanic verse: "O You Messengers! Enjoy all things pure and do righteous deeds. Indeed I am well acquainted with all that you do." Presenting its downright stupid and baatil interpretation of this aayat, the juhala of SANHA say: "This means that all Messengers were given Divine instructions to eat all things good and pure which translates to Halaal."

Every ignorant Muslim layman can understand that Allah's command to the Ambiyaa (alayhimus salaam) does not condone the haraam, the fisq and fujoor of the Sunday Times Food exhibition in which SANHA contemplates indulging. In case the density of brains of some ignoramuses do not comprehend this statement, we spell it out in simple terms. In the aforementioned aayat of the Qur'aan which SANHA wrongly translates and interprets in a haraam manner, Allah Ta'ala commands the Ambiya to eat only halaal tayyib food since A'maal-e-Saalihah (righteous deeds) rise out of the basis of halaal, tayyib food. Even mushtabah food is a formidable barrier for righteous deeds. The aayat does not in any way command the Ambiya to consume the liquor, pork, the multitude of other haraam and contaminated food and carrion which will be served by the hands of faahishas, zaaniyyahs, fussaaq and fujjaar at the exhibition of Jaahiliyyah. A Muslim does not require brains to understand that an Aayat of the Qur'aan cannot be cited to justify a jaahiliyyah merrymaking function which is adorned with fisq, fujoor, haraam, zina and other factors of prohibition.

Since the minds of the SANHA officials have become deranged by Divine Manipulation on account of its (SANHA's) only activity of proclaiming haraam carrion to be halaal and selling the Qur'aan for a miserable price with its haraam 'halaal' certificates, their (SANHA's officials') Imaani perception has become fossilized. They have degenerated to a level of kufr below the proverbial bottom of the barrel. They are scraping under the bottom of the barrel of kufr with their shameless exercise of justifying a collection of haraam acts with Qur'aanic aayaat. While they have succeeded in self-delusion and self-seduction, they cannot convince any ignorant Muslim that the Qur'aan commands the Ambiya to 'enjoy' the wine, pork and carrion of the Sunday Times Food Show in which SANHA, trampling rudely on the heart and honour of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), will be participating.

The aayat which SANHA has mistranslated with the intention of misleading stupid Muslims, does not command the Ambiya to 'enjoy all things pure'. The aayat commands the Ambiya to eat only such food which is halaal and tayyib so that the exercise of A'maal-e- Saalihah is simplified and Noor is generated in the heart. There is no allusion to any permissibility to participate in the liquor, pork and zina merrymaking nafsaani function orchestrated by Iblees.

A far greater travesty of the truth and an act of vile kufr in diametric conflict with and in negation of Tauheed is SANHA's presentation of a Qur'aanic verse to justify the kufr doctrines of trinity and shirk of the kuffaar. Thus, SANHA in its abortive bid to give Islamic credibility to the wine, pork and zina function of Sunday Times, cites the aayat of the Qur'aan: "And, verily this brotherhood of yours is a single brotherhood, and I am your Lord and Cherisher: Therefore fear Me." Stating its comment of kufr on the verse, SANHA says:"The verses further elaborate on the oneness of man as common brethren to worship the Almighty."

Sight should not be lost of the fact that SANHA has presented this kufr interpretation in the background of its participation in the haraam wine, pork and zina food-show of the Sunday Times and Pick 'n Pay. With this aayat SANHA implies that all the kuffaar wine consumers and pork gobblers of the food-show are 'one brethren' with Muslims. In other words, Muslims and those whom Islam brand as kuffaar are all 'one brethren' heading for Najaat (Salvation) in the Aakhirah. But this impression which SANHA is propagating by stealth and cunning is nothing but pure kufr which casts the SANHA officials firmly beyond the fold of Islam. In other words the whole miserable lot of SANHA is murtadd.

While mankind is a single species which was originally a single Ummah, it split up into Mu'min and Kaafir in terms of the pre-ordained decree of Allah Ta'ala, hence the Qur'aan-e- Hakeem states unequivocally: "Verily, We have created you. From among you are Mu'min and among you are Kaafir." These are the two primary categories of mankind. The Qur'aan repeatedly orders the Mu'mineen to distance themselves from the kaafireen. There is no common ground between Imaan and Kufr. The Mu'mineen and kaafireen are never 'one brethren'. It is absolutely shocking and lamentable that the SANHA crowd despite claiming to be Muslim, sought to justify wine, pork, zina and kufr with Qur'aanic verses, solely for the gratification and fulfillment of its pecuniary agenda.

Another misleading and dastardly meaning which SANHA has injected into the Qur'aanic command to the Ambiya to consume only halaal and tayyib foods, is the virtues of gluttony. SANHA has cited the aayat in relation to the haraam Sunday Times food show of gluttony. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has mentioned that while the Muslim fills only one intestine when eating, the kuffaar gluttonously fill seven intestines. Further, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ordered that Muslims should fill only one third of their stomachs. They are not permitted to resort to orgies of gluttony and spiritual debauchery which are the salient and dominate features and activities of kuffaar merrymaking functions. Even a Masnoon Walimah where only halaal tayyib food is served in an environment which fully conforms to the Shariah, gluttony, over-eating and kuffaar style merrymaking are haraam. What then should be commented about a kaafir food-guzzling, merrymaking foodshow of jaahiliyyah where haraam foods, wine, pork, zina, etc. will preponderate?

While the murtaddeen of SANHA seek to justify the haraam Sunday Times exhibition and its (SANHA's) haraam participation with Qur'aanic verses, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: "Whoever believes in Allah and the Last day should never sit at a feast where liquor is served." Liquor is an imperative and a dominant feature of The Sunday Times haraam food-show in which SANHA is participating despite the Sunday Times' maligning of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). A person who professes to be a Muslim will never support an event engineered by those who have maligned the honour of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and who persist in the policy of vilification of Islam and its holiest personages.

By supporting Sunday Times events and by advertising in the Sunday Times, SANHA and other miscreants instigated by the NNB Jamiat are repeatedly stabbing deep wounds in the heart of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and strengthening the cause of kufr. Murtaddeen and Munaafiqeen (i.e. the likes of SANHA and the so-called Muslims who advertise in the Sunday Times) love to see the heart of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) bleed with the wounds inflicted on that sacred Heart by the venomous daggers of the enemies of Islam.

The message for these murtaddeen and munaafiqeen masquerading as Muslims and utilizing Muslim resources for promoting their nafsaani and pecuniary agendas is the warning of Hadhrat Junaid Baghdaadi (rahmatullah alayh): "Whoever searches for honour with baatil, Allah will afflict him with disgrace by means of the Haqq."

It is the Waajib obligation of Muslims to BOYCOTT the Sunday Times—To BOYCOTT SANHA!!! Throw out the haraam certificates of SANHA!!! Products are not transformed into halaal by the haraam scraps of paper SANHA doles out for gratifying the haraam culinary tastes of its gluttonous nafs and pecuniary instincts of its inordinate nafsaani greed. Any true Muslim who has the honour of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in his heart will not buy the Sunday Times, will not advertise in the Sunday Times, will not sell the Sunday Times, and will not support SANHA's haraam embrace with the Sunday Times.
