Recreation, Joking And Religion

As a rule, in every Muslim’s life, his religion must always be preferred over entertainment. Or else very little of Islam will remain.
Adherence to and reverence for one’s creed must reign supreme. This is not to say, Islam doesn’t allow recreation, or light heartedness.
The sirah (biography) of our beloved Prophet (Allah’s peace be upon him) has many examples of his jovial side. These are well documented and are known to many.

It is absolutely essential that one be able to draw a line between what is allowed and what isn’t. Failure to do so, gradually leads one passed the boundaries of permissibility.

The religion of entertainment!

The trend around the globe is that people are constantly looking for innovative ways of entertaining themselves.
This ‘hunger for entertainment’ has a gradual effect of retrogression on one’s spirituality.

-Firstly, as Muslims, our goal in this life isn’t entertainment, it’s the fulfillment of a set of commands of Allah Most High and the practical implementation of the lifestyle of Nabi Muhammad (Allah’s peace be upon him).

-Secondly, one who has the habit of entertaining, often fails to realize the limits. It is therefore necessary to keep one’s self in check, and to get the priorities right.

-Thirdly, when one eradicates the Dhikr of Allah from one’s life, this is replaced with futility.

In the recent past, the tendency of making jokes that entail the symbols of Islam have alarmingly increased.
Even more astonishing is the fact that many of us don’t even realize the proportion of its ill-effect.

The Significance of a Symbol

Allah Most High says:

ومن يعظم شعائر الله فإنها من تقوى القلوب

‘And whoever honours the symbols of Allah, does so out of the taqwa [that exits] in the heart.’ (Surah Haj, verse: 32)
A symbol is something that exclusively represents whatever it symbolizes.
Making fun of the symbols of Islam is a mockery of Islam itself! The Fuqaha have ruled that when one mocks (or makes light of) at a symbol of Islam, he could be removed from the fold! (Durrul Mukhtar, with Raddul Muhtar, vol.5 pg.474)

Jokes that portray people reciting the Quran or offering Salah in a comical manner, or a man making du’a using words and phrases that are meant to create a laugh indeed fall very close to ‘One who mocks a symbol of Islam.’ How can a Muslim make fun at his very own religion? Even worse is when some make jokes about Allah or ‘God’ or the Messenger of Allah (Allah’s peace be upon him), his Companions (Allah be pleased with them) or any religious personalities! How did we reach such a level? It surely didn’t happen in the blink of an eye. These are the ill-effects of our hunger for entertainment. Who is then to blame for defamatory cartoons and other such mock-ups of our religion?!

Allah Most High has clearly stated:
وما هو بالهزل

‘And it (the Quran and its teachings, ie, Islam) is not a joke’ (Surah Tariq, verse: 14)

What to do?

When one receives such a clip or joke, immediately delete it. Don’t share it with anyone, as this leads to it spreading. Sometimes, ignoring futility is the best way to eradicate it. By sharing such jokes, we become guilty of this mockery ourselves!
Lastly, one should –if possible- tactfully advise the sender against sharing/creating such content.
May Allah Most High save us from ‘the religion of entertainment’, as that is not the religion brought by prophet Muhammad (Allah’s peace be upon him)!

Jumaat Kareem

BBC Staff Caught Watching A Sex Scene During Live News Broadcast – See Video

Viewers tuning into the BBC’s News at Ten got an eyeful when a woman exposed her n*ked breasts on a computer screen – just yards behind presenter Sophie Raworth, Dailymail has reported.

The BBC worker wearing headphones sitting on a chair at the background could be seen watching the clip of the adult content as the woman removed her bra in the raunchy movie scene.

Ms Raworth, 49, was presenting a live piece on the England cricket team’s victory over South Africa, but eagle-eyed viewers noticed the screen over her shoulder.

Around 3.8million viewers watched the show and one person tweeted: ‘@BBCNews why is there a porn video playing behind one of your news anchors during a report?’

The actress was wearing a black jumper while standing over a man during the clip which could be seen on Monday evening. In what is believed to be an action movie, she then removed her bra to reveal her breasts during the striptease.

Speaking on the incident, a television source condemned the act and told The Sun: ‘This has gone down like a lead balloon at the BBC. It is totally unprofessional.

‘It beggars belief a s*x scene should be played live on air. The employee is on borrowed time when bosses catch up with him.’

The BBC said it is investigating the incident.
