Severely rebuking the scholars for dollars, the Qur’aan Hakeem states:
“Why do their scholars and their saints not prohibit them (their people) from their sinful statements, and their devouring of haraam. Indeed, vile is it that they are perpetrating.” (Aayat 63, Al-Maaidah)
“O People of Imaan (know that) verily, numerous among the scholars and the saints devour the wealth of people by baatil (in haram ways), and they prevent (people) from the Path of Allah).” (Aayat 34, At-Taubah)
There are many Ahaadith which severely castigate the scholars for dollars, warning them of the dire consequences of their treacherous conduct of selling the Deen and the Ummah for the miserable gains of the dunya and the nafs. Hubb-e-Maal (love for wealth) and Hubb-e-Jah (love for fame and aggrandizement) have destroyed these bootlicking and bootlegging scholars for dollars.
Our noble Sages have said that two groups in the Ummah have caused the greatest harm to Islam and Muslims: the evil ulama (the scholars for dollars) and the evil kings. These vile miscreants have colluded and connived in every age and every place to achieve their nafsaani objectives whilst committing spiritual suicide and ruining the Ummah in their satanic process of achieving their pernicious goals.
It is indeed lamentable in the extreme that the once uprighteous Jamiatul Ulama Hind devoted to the Cause of Islam and the Ummah, has fallen by the wayside and has today become a vehicle manipulated by bootlicking and bootlegging scholars for dollars pursuing their selfish, conceited haraam goals. It is for this reason that such a glaringly foul, oppressive and tyrannical regime as the Saudi regime, is being lauded for imagined service to the Ummah.
The Saudi regime, far from rendering service, has converted the Hajj Ibaadat into a despicable commercial enterprise to fill its coffers with illgotten gains extravasated from the Hujjaaj. Every wrung in the Saudi regime’s Hajj and Umrah institution stands for exploitation and humiliation of the Hujjaaj. The Ummah is not in need of the satanic destruction of the Holy Cities wrought by the Saudi regime bent on the elimination of every relic related to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah. While Maulana Arshad calls for praise and support for the brutal Saudi regime, he conveniently feigns ignorance regarding Rasulullah’s command on his deathbed:
“Expel the Yahood and Nasaara from Jazeeratul Arab!”
He should hang his head in shame! As Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was departing from this ephemeral earthly abode, he emphasized the expulsion of all kuffaar from the sacred land of Hijaaz. Whilst this Command was upheld for almost fourteen centuries, the Saudi Najdis betrayed this trust and on a golden platter handed the Land of Hijaaz to the very Yahood and Nasaara who had been expelled in obedience to the Last Testament of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
Not only has the cowardly and brutal kaafir Saudi regime handed the Arabian Peninsula to the kuffaar – they have actively aided and abetted the destruction of Muslim lands from U.S. bases operating from Hijaz. The tyrants of the Saudi regime have also actively and diligently aided the evil and brutal U.S. rendition campaign in which countless Muslims were abducted, imprisoned and horrendously tortured. Yet Maulana Arshad calls on Muslims to embrace with love these Saudi butchers, torturers, murderers, rapists and plunderers of the Ummah and its lands.
The Saudi regime is in an evil, clandestine embrace with the Zionists of the humbug state of Israel. The Saudi regime has actively aided the destruction of the legitimate Egyptian government of the Muslim Brotherhood. The vile regime with its backyard U.S. puppet gulf states has contributed billions of dollars to sustain the current illegitimate Yahoodi force acting as the ‘government’ of Egypt. The Saudi regime is directly instrumental in the incremental suffering of the stricken Muslims fleeing from the murderous Asad regime in Syria. Muslims in Saudi Arabia are banned from contributing money for aiding the suffering refugees. The kaafir Saudi regime conspires with the U.S. to aid the secular forces in Syria in the plot to prevent the establishment of Islam and its Shariah in the Land of Sham.
Dollars and Riyals have blinded these scholars for dollars. The lure of money has effaced their spiritual vision, hence they fail to distinguish between their wives, daughters and mothers. All are up for sale to be pillaged and ravaged by the U.S. butchers. And, the Saudi regime plays a primary role in the enactment of U.S. horrors.
More than 40,000 Muslims, including innumerable Ulama, are languishing in the torture dungeons of the Saudi regime. Every move which the Saudi regime is nowadays making is at the behest of the U.S. The Shariah has been abrogated; virtue has been abolished; vice has been legalized. Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar has been effectively terminated. The Amr Bil Ma’roof Police force has been rendered an emaciated toothless dog unable to even bark. Zina has been given the nod of acceptance in the brothels of the regimes secular universities.
When tyranny, brutality, fisq, fujoor and even kufr have become the salient features of the Saudi regime, how is it possible for a man of Imaan to call on the Ummah to revere and idolize such villains? Maulana Arshad has undoubtedly, lost his Imaani bearings in the pursuit of the dollars and perks doled out via the Saudi embassy.
