Allah Ta’ala states: “Ask the people of Thikr (Knowledge) if you do not know.” (Qur’aan)

Q. I have noticed something, which does not seem correct. I see the Ulama congratulating the matriculants, but if I ask these Ulama if school is permissible, they say it is Haraam! Now how come are they congratulating matriculants which actually means that they are encouraging the Haraam environments of the schools, but they never ever condemn the so-many Haraam acts associated with the schools and universities, etc.?

A. Only the Ulama-e-Soo (evil so-called ‘Ulama’) are congratulating the matriculants. Not a single proper Aalim has congratulated the matriculants.

While secular education is permissible, the environment and institutions in which secular education are being imparted are evil, immoral and totally nugatory of Imaan and Akhlaaq. Thus, according to the Ulama-e-Haq (i.e. all the proper Ulama), it is not permissible for Muslims to attend these un-Islamic educational institutions. Therefore, the secular schools, so-called ‘Muslim’ schools, Technikons, colleges and universities are Haraam for genuine Muslims – not just Muslims by name.

Intermingling of the sexes is integral to all of these educational brothels. Zina of various degrees takes place at these dens of the devil. How is it possible for a Muslim to violate the Laws of Allah for the sake of a matric certificate or university degree, which in terms of the Shariah is a scrap certificate! A Muslim is not allowed to perpetrate Haraam and evil for the sake of monetary and worldly gain. The perpetration of Haraam for the sake of matriculating or qualifying as a doctor or accountant for example is despicable for a person who claims to be a Mu’min!

The Ulama-e-Soo conduct themselves like dumb Shaytaans when it comes to condemning the Haraam secular schools and the Haraam farewell parties and Zina matric balls. But, when it comes to Matric results, then they suddenly become vocal Shayaateen. It is clear that they are hankering after name and fame!

Since it is an indisputable fact that although secular education is permissible, it is however Haraam to pursue such education at the secular schools, etc. as explained where the pupil has to perpetuate multitudes of Haraam acts. Therefore, the attendance at the Haraam schools will render the perpetrator a Faasiq in terms of the Shariah. It is a compound of shameless sins committed in public incessantly without any fear for Allah whatsoever. In fact, instead of making Taubah and turning unto Allah, futile attempts are made to justify all the Fisq and Fujoor at the Haraam schools.

Thus, the pupil matriculating at the Haraam school for example or the student graduating from the Jahannami university is undoubtedly a Faasiq. If a person does not attend the Haraam school, university and does his studies and exams from home completely without the need to speak to a ghair Mahram even once and not a single Shar’i violation takes place (no Hijaab, music, intermingling of the sexes, shaving the beard, un-Islamic shameless dressing, etc. etc.), then it is a different matter. 

However, 99,99% of Muslims nowadays are attending the Haraam schools which renders them Fussaaq. Islamically, they have no honour whatsoever. Congratulating the Matriculant is praising a Faasiq which is not permissible. Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “When a Faasiq is praised, the Arsh of Allah shudders”.

Thus, the Ulama-e-soo who are congratulating the matriculants and causing the Arsh of Allah to shudder, thereby incurring the Wrath of Allah, undoubtedly come within the scope of the following Hadeeth: Rasulullah 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.”
