This year like every year several Charity organisations have been coming to our Masjid to collect Zakaat, Sadaqah ,Lillah but for the last few years I have been noticing a trend where many of these organisations have glossy posters and HUGE BILLBOARDS which they put up at Masjid entrances and they have pictures of children, men, women (to show the needy).
Most of these organisations’ are run by Authentic & Senior Ulamah and surely some of them must realise that these pamphlets, posters and HUGE BILLBOARDS are often used inside the Masjid (or people take them home).
Recently I saw an organisation (run by a Senior Shaykhul-Hadeeth) with pictures of a fairly young Albanian woman with “NO HIJAB” and receiving aid. Another pictures showed girls (14,15) being taught by Ulamah in Beards and Sunnah.
This is really beginning to annoy me!!!
I know that I may get vilified for criticising but I just CANNOT stand this with the onslaught of photography and pictures in the house of Allah!
Have we forgotten CLEAR AHADEETH of Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) about pictures?
These are not digitial pictures, they are on PAPER and PHOTOGRAPHS!!!!
WHY IN THE MASJID???
