In this court,the Quran and Hadith will be the judges. The blasphemous acts among Muslim students will be brought to this court to decide. The decision of the Qur'an and Hadith shall be binding on everyone.
The first allegation is about indecent,unrighteous, un-Islamic way of dressing by some Muslim students on campus,most especially the sisters. Forgetting that they will be addressed,the way they are dressed".We have some sisters nowadays half dressed. It baffles me a lot , you see some sisters with tight clothes and 'half-hijab' so to say. The brothers are not left out from the shenanigans youthful ways dressing with unislamic -modern day hairstyles. However when ask for their justification, they say the 'world is changing,let's change with it, not knowing that-change does not matter,it's piousness that matters. But below is the verdict of this court
QUR'AN: 7:26"o children of Adam, we have provided you with garments to cover your bodies, as well as for luxury, but the best garment is the garment of righteousness
HADITH: Abu Dawud narrated that Aishah said
"Asma came to see the messenger of Allah(SAW).she was wearing a tight dress, the prophet turned away from her and said to her "O Asma, once a woman reaches the age of puberty no part of her body should be uncovered excerpt her face and hands.
The second allegation against the Muslim youth is the way they find hip-hop songs pleasurable to their hearing than reciting and listen to the Quran. Forgetting that every part of our body will account on the day of judgement. The time that should have been used in memorizing or even reciting the Qur'an is wasted on worldly and un-Godly songs,In fact some brothers can sing the whole album of Chris Brown,this is uncalled for, for Muslims students. But when you ask why some listening to music. They say it keeps boredom away, some say it's lively-I wonder if that's oxygen. But the verdict of this court is this
QUR'AN:: Surah Luqman verse 6:Allah says
"And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (I.e music, singing etc) to mislead (men) from the path of Allah without knowledge and takes it(the path of Allah, the verses of the Quran by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment
The third allegation,is the way we Muslims of today take the nonbelievers as our intimate friends, no one is saying we should not befriend them, but the point is not taking them as our intimate friends. As we know 'show me your friend, and I tell you who you are' .people we befriend have a lot of impact in our lives,so let's be wise. The decision of this court is that
'Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Awliyaa(friends, supporters,helpers) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by God in any way, except if you indeed fear a danger from them..
As today's proceeding comes to an end, brothers and sisters in Islam don't let's forget to abide by the verdicts of given by the judges (Quran and Hadith), by doing so we will increase in our Iman.
