MESSAGE FOR THE MUNAAFIQEEN
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO GO TO THE MASJID, STAY AT HOME. NOBODY IS FORCING YOU TO GO TO THE MASJID. UNDOUBTEDLY, IT IS THE SHAYTAANI RIGHT OF A MUNAAFIQ TO STAY AT HOME IF HE DOES NOT WISH TO PERFORM SALAAT AT THE MASAAJID.
YOU MUNAAFIQS HAVE NO SHAR’I RIGHT WHATSOEVER TO STOP MUSLIMS FROM VISITING THE HOUSE OF ALLAH!
It is an indisputable fact that every Muslim wants the Masaajid to be open in opposition to the Munaafiqeen who want the Masaajid to be closed. The Mu’mineen want the Masaajid to be open out of fear for Allah. The Munaafiqeen want the Masaajid to be closed out of fear for a virus.
All genuine Muslim males wish to go to the Masjid for their Salaat. The Masjid is the House of Allah. So whether the Munaafiq Trustees happen to be in control of the Masaajid or the Masaajid are under the control of proper trustees, the Munaafiq trustees should realize that it is Haraam to debar or prevent any Muslim from the Masjid. If the Munaafiq trustee closes the Masjid, then it does not mean that all the Musallis agree with him and his Shaytaani shenanigans.
The Muslimeen (i.e. the Musallis) wish that the Masaajid should always be open. If the Munaafiq does not wish to go to the Masjid, then he may stay at home. But, he has not Shar’i right to prevent any Musalli from the Masjid. Furthermore, it is Kufr to close the Masaajid and not allow the Musallis to come to the Masjid.
Then there are innumerable Masaajid which are managed by Muslims – not Munaafiqs! Why are the Munaafiqeen opposing the Masaajid of the Muslims? Only a Kaafir or a Munaafiq will not be pleased at Muslims who wish to go to the Masjid. Why do the Munaafiqeen and Murtaddeen wish to stop Muslims from attending the Masaajid – including those Masaajid which are not mismanaged by the Munaafiqeen, but rather those that are bastions of Hidaayat and run in conformity to the Shariah by the Muslimeen? There are so many Masaajid managed by Muslims. Why are the Munaafiqeen opposing the Masaajid of the Muslimeen from being open?
The Munaafiqeen should understand that the Masjid does not belong to them even if these Shayaateen are fully in charge of such Masaajid. The Munaafiqeen should understand that they will taste the consequences of their Kufr, Nifaaq and Zulm very soon Insha Allah Ta’ala. The Fitnah will definitely rebound on them.
Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “Soon will there dawn an age when nothing of Islam will remain except its name – nothing of the Qur’aan will remain except its text. The Musaajid will be elaborate (and ornate) structures, but bereft of guidance. The worst of the people under the canopy of the sky will be the ulama. From them will emerge fitnah, and the fitnah will rebound on them (and hem them in).”
