Assalam Alaykum warahmutallahi Wabarakath

Yesterday night i stumbled upon a blog that shocked me. After reading it i couldn't sleep properly and that is why i felt the need to express my thoughts. [I won't be putting the blog up here.] I know Prostitution is rampant in Dubai, sleeping around has become common and it's all happening regardless of the fact that this is a Muslim Country but it being talked about so openly made me open my eyes a bit more. I'd read Newspaper articles, magazines and seen documentaries which tell us how common 'picking people up' had become in Dubai's society. Malls, Hotels, Roads. The only difference is it's all done under cover and isn't that out in the open.

What really saddened me was that a lot of people who take part in it are Muslims. Regardless of the fact if they are Indian, Lebanese, Pakistani, Emirati, Jordanian, South African and so on. [Considering the multitude of nationalities present in the United Arab Emirates.] And i'm not even talking about prostitution, let's put one-night stands, illicit relationships and everything else into the mix.

[Before i go on i'd like to mention that not everyone is involved in it and alhamdulilah there are decent present still present.]

Subhanallah, what is our Ummah coming to? I was absolutely disgusted by some of the things i'd read. About how Men and Women were involved in adultery and/or other haraam relationships. And suprisingly a lot of these come from good and wealthy families.

I kept on thinking to myself, don't these people remember Allah subhanna wa ta'ala and don't they fear him?

Don't they remember their graves and the worms?

Don't they remember their akhira?

Haven't they come across the verses from the Quran and hadiths which talk about illegal sexual intercourse and illicit relationship?

Don't they know that this is the pathway to hell and everything in this dunya will be left in this dunya?

Don't they know how painful it will be when our souls will be pulled out from our bodies? And according to ours sins the pain will either increase or decrease. Subhanallah, even the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam was not exempted from it.

There is a hadith that talks about what the implication for the one who commits illegal sexual intercourse or drinks will be:

Hadith - Sahih Bukhari 8.800B, Narrated Ikrima from Ibn Abbas:

Allah's Apostle said, "When a slave (of Allah) commits illegal sexual intercourse, he is not a believer at the time of committing it; and if he steals, he is not a believer at the time of stealing; and if he drinks an alcoholic drink, when he is not a believer at the time of drinking it; and he is not a believer when he commits a murder." 'Ikrima said: I asked Ibn Abbas, "How is faith taken away from him?" He said, Like this," by clasping his hands and then separating them, and added, "But if he repents, faith returns to him like this," by clasping his hands again.

Allah subhanna wa ta'ala says in the Quran:

"Verily, those who love that indecency should spread among the believers deserve a painful chastisement in the world and in the Hereafter. Allah knows, but you do not know." Al-Nur (The Light) Chapter 24: Verse 19


Allah subhanna wa ta'ala is aware of every single thing we do. How can they forget that?

[33:54] If you do a thing openly or do it in secret, then surely Allah is Cognizant of all things.

Don't let it be too late for repentance. There will be no return to correct our mistakes once we die.

[23:64] Until when We overtake those who lead easy lives among them with punishment, lo! they cry for succor.

[23:65] Cry not for succor this day; surely you shall not be given help from Us.

Allah subhanna wa ta'ala mentions about what will happen to the people who turn aside from what he says:

[ 23:71] And should the truth follow their low desires, surely the heavens and the earth and all those who are therein would have perished. Nay! We have brought to them their reminder, but from their reminder they turn aside.

[2:206] And when it is said to him, guard against (the punish ment of) Allah; pride carries him off to sin, therefore hell is sufficient for him; and certainly it is an evil resting place.

The punishment in the Hell-Fire:

Say, "The truth is from your Lord": Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it): for the wrong-doers We have prepared a Fire whose (smoke and flames), like the walls and roof of a tent, will hem them in: if they implore relief they will be granted water like melted brass, that will scald their faces, how dreadful the drink! How uncomfortable a couch to recline on! [Al Kahf - Verse 29]

Allah subhanna wa ta'ala talks about those people who compliment each other and laugh about their wrongdoings:

29. Verily! (During the worldly life) those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed.


30. And whenever they passed by them, used to wink one to another (in mockery);


31. And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting;

Al-Mutaffifin

If these reminders arn't enough i don't know what is. I see our Youth [And from the youth i mean everyone from the age of 12 into their 30's] and i see them in their fast cars with their music blaring high. If you have been in Dubai even for a few months you'll know the amount of deaths that happen because of car accidents. Death can strike us at any time, do you want to die in a state where there is music blaring around you? We will be brought up on the day of judgement in the same state in which we died. Do you want to stand up infront of Allah subhanna wa ta'ala when you have committed all these major sins?

Truly this life of this dunya is not worth it. This is why we are put under so much difficulty. It is from Allah subhanna wa ta'ala. This is also why the kuffar are able to torture and imprison is. It is because we are so involved in this worldly life. We've forgotten Allah subhanna wa ta'ala and our Imaan is down in the dumps. If the Muslim Ummah united under the banner of Islam we would be strong.

But no, majority of the People are more concerned with what movie they want to watch, how much money they want to make, which girlfriend/boyfriend they are dating, if they look good enough and are more bothered with going to concerts then doing dhikrallah and praying their Salaah and reading the Quran.

May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala guide us and make us better Muslims. Ameen.

May Allah reward you for your fikr.

The thing is, most of the people who are committing these sins will not read your blog. So, unfortunately, your excellent advice won't reach them.

What can we do? Apart from blogging our sadness we can:

1 - Make A LOT OF dua for Hidayat of all (as we do when reciting Surah Fatiha in every salah!).

2 - Talk about Allah's greatness to all we know - his vision, knowledge and MERCY especially! This will increase our Imaan (and hopefully theirs!).

3 - Remind and encourage everyone to perform Salah properly and punctually. As Allah has said this will prevent one from Fahsha and Munkar. But with kindness and good Akhlaq.

4 - Encourage all that we know to do the same above things.

All the time, we should be afraid, because that person may have some good deed acceptable to Allah (because of Ikhlas) and I may have a sin which is sufficient for my downfall.

First time here my sis. Thank you thank you thank you from my heart. I think i know what blog you are talking abt and thank Allah that at last someone is critisizing what I saw and had thousands of question marks on my head because of it.

I will read all your posts. I'm sure you have something to say about what's happening in my country, Iraq.

Safa said...

Here in Egypt, prostitution is also rampant.....I've only heard about it, and was shocked! It also seems that many of the younger kids are doing the "orfi" marriage....their idea of legal sex.....sigh.

Sharique said...

Not just Dubai but many other *Islamic* countries have taken their citizens to the abyss of ignorance. They think its modern and a must to change according to the contemporary society norms. As you have correctly pointed out that the temporary satisfaction seems to have overwhelmed the lot..May Allah save us from sins and also guide them!

Assalam Alaykum warahmutallah,

Jazakallah khair anonymous for the excellent advice. May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala make all of us righteous Muslims and make us able to give excellent dawah. Ameen.

Mohammed UK: I will Inshallah.

rejected: Assalam Alaykum ukhti. You don't need to thank me. This is a long gone problem not only in Dubai [But like sharique mentioned] in other Muslim Countries too.

Safa: Yeah, i've heard things about Egypt as well. The orfi/mutah/misyar marriages were brought back in headlines sometime back. May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala guide them. It's simply mind boggling what people come up with.

Sharique: Your right. Ameen to the dua.

Jazakumallahi khairan for commenting.

the UAE has just become so westernized--after coca cola, the NFL and p. diddy, they've finally started adopting our ever crappier western habits. as a westerner, i'm ashamed of my culture. as a christian, i'm ashamed that my religion is associated with it.

Mahwash said...

Its all about who Allah Ta'ala wishes to guide.. and who wants to be guided.
I remember when my brother and i were tlaking about the akhirah and he was telling me how dajjal would come and some ppl would follow him. I asked him how will some muslims do that when we have already been told about it. How can we fall into sin when we already know it will ruin our akhirah. he said dont u know that watching TV and Movies is not right? yet u do it?..
It made sense to my young mind back then.
I guess it goes to show how powerful shaitaan is and the way it can cloud our judgment. once we have fallen into his trap its hard to get out. unless u keep on fighting him and keep increasing you efforts.. your iman will stay high. if youstart weakening.. there he is.. ready to take you over..
May Allah protect us all and guide us to the right path ..ameen

Has islam ever been anything else but some prescriptions and proscriptions of the elder male patriarchs of society, sitting drinking black coffee in their robes and slippers at coffee shops, and discussing politics and which neighborhood women are whores, hypocritically prescribed and hypocritically applied, to a mass population brainwashed by their parents and elder relatives, in a stifling environment?

What about True Freedom?

What about embracing the openness and love of Christianity (not those who have used it wrongly, but the true essence of the religion), or the millennia-old ethics and heritage of Judaism?

anonymous: Wow... your ignorance shows. Stop steteotyping a whoke community and Muslims all over. I doubt you'd even know the basics of it.

Infact if you go through the Quran and Hadith the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] were well respected and treated.

Salam walaykum
Sister I really like the way you present modern worldly issues and relate them to Allah.

Often when people get caught up in money and a fast paced life ina glamorous regional capital, then they forget about Allaah.

It may not be too long before Allaah forgets about them.

Abu Yunus(abuyunus101@gawab.com) said...

All praise is due to Allah, the Creator, the Magnificent, and the Omnipotent. Peace & blessings on our noble Prophet Muhammed, his family & his companions.

AsalamalaikumwarahmatAllah wabarakto brothers & sisters.

The content of this post is not surprising.

Muslims have abandoned the true way of our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) and his rightly guided companions. We have rejected the law of Allah & replaced it with man-made law. After all these atrocities that we have committed against ourselves, it was only inevitable that we would fall to the bottom of the moral scale.

We were warned by our noble Messenger, Rasol Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) in the hadith;

“Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You would tread the same path as was trodden by those before you inch by inch and step by step so much so that if they had entered into the hole of the lizard, you would follow them in this also. We said: Allah's Messenger, do you mean Jews and Christians (by your words)" those before you"? He said: Who else?” (Sahih Muslim - Kitab Al-`Ilm)

My dear brothers & sisters, have we not copied the Jews and Christians to the extent narrated in this hadith? Our malls are packed with their merchandise enticing us to imitate them, our TV sets beam their culture into our homes exposing us & our future generations to their immorality. We admire them and we want to be like them.

While they oppress, torture, and humiliate us.

Ask a common Muslim the names of the top soccer players, and he will name them without hesitation. But ask him who were the 10 given the glad tidings of Jannah in this world, and he will fumble.

So, what is the solution?

Since the lens on our eyes need to be the lens of the Quran & the Sunnah, we must hence seek answers to our problems from these sources.

And the solution to our woes lies in the following hadith,

“If you transact in `Iynah, follow the tails of cows (tilling the land), become content with agriculture and abandoned Jihad, Allah will send on you humiliation that He will not lifted until, you return to your religion.”(Abu Dawud).

Brothers & sisters, the solution therefore is to return to our religion by following the commandments of Allah azawajal. By re-establishing Jihad & re-implementing Shariah. Only and only then will we rid ourselves of the filth in our nations, in our cities, and in our homes.

And Allah knows best.

All you have expressed is quite true.. The Arabs have adopted the hedonistic life style of the west, and we have certainly lost the glory of the age of the enlightenment. Every ummah keeps what it earns, we can't relay on former glories.. When I see the Arabic songs and movies, I think to myself wow.. this is far worst than I see in the west on the regular channels...Why do we degrade ourselves and out women.. well I think for starters if we stopped purchasing and buying their filth, perhaps they'd take a hint and good away?

Why is it that the man/god paganist Christians are doing so much better.. the answer is simple they have abandoned their religions and it took them from the dark ages to the age of enlightenment.. whilst for us the complete opposite is true, we have abandoned our religion, left the age of reason and enlightenment to the dark ages.. the choice is ours to wake up from this hibernation and take our world back

"The nations are about to call each other and set upon you, just as diners set upon food." It was said: "Will it be because of our small number that day?" He said: "Rather, on that day you will be many, but you will be like foam, like the foam on the river. And Allaah will remove the fear of you from the hearts of your enemies and will throw wahn (weakness) into your hearts." Someone said: "O Messenger of Allaah! What is Wahn?" He said: "Love of the world and the hatred for death." [5]

and that is indeed where we currently stand...
