An international pop star was allowed to play his music in a musjid. Though he was only given approximately a minute, the pop star got immediately on the act and used his minute to the full. His complete band played along while he sang some lines from his latest release. There was a mixed response from those present. While most of the congregation were enraged, some did not seem too bothered. After all, they also had pop bands playing …on their CELLPHONES.

Murder, looting, plundering, fraud, corruption … and the seemingly never ending list of misery and torment that has become the order of the day. The prevalence of such conditions have become a way of life. Unless the victims were near and dear, sensational headlines depicting murder and mayhem also do not evoke shock and disbelief. While the crime rate continues to spiral out of control, debates, discussions and conferences abound as to what are the factors leading to this deplorable condition. The debates and discussions will continue but unless the only real solution is not adopted, no difference will occur in the prevailing situation. The question is who has the solution and what is it?

This is an account given by Maulana Ilyas (rahmatullahi 'alayhi)'s son, Maulana Yusuf, of the last words spoken to him by his father.

On Wednesday near 4 o'clock (at night), Hadhrat (Rahmatullah 'Alayhi) was lying in his bed with me sitting on his right side. (May Allah grant us perfect mercy in this world and the Hereafter and may He grant us the ability to follow in Hadhrat's footsteps properly.) He called me and I went to sit on his left side facing him.

Amr bin Awf (R.A.) relates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) : "I do not fear poverty for you (the Ummah) but what I really fear is that the worldly wealth may be increased for you as it was increased for those before you. Hence you will compete with one another for the world just as those before you competed with one another for it. It will then destroy you just as it destroyed them" (Sahih Bukhari).
   

Vulgarity

A Mu'min (Believer) is one who displays the highest akhlaq (character). Thus, he will rid himself of all evil qualities. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has highlighted some of these evil qualities when he declared: "A Believer does not taunt others, or curse people, or indulge in vulgar or obscene talk" (Tirmizi).

A Mu'min's heart, and tongue are both clean. He does not think of vulgar or obscene things nor does he express such things with his tongue. It is therefore tragic that some people take pride in using vulgar language. This is far from the akhlaq of a Believer. We should adopt the akhlaq of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), that most exemplary personality who was never vulgar or obscene.
