How do you know which ‘Ulema’ is wrapped by shaitan? Face Painting – ‘They are Just Kids’
Bismillah! Al Hamdulillah!
Did you get the TOOL to track the footprints?
What did Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala warn you about shaitan?
Did Allah say about not to follow the shaitan?
Rather He said, ‘Do not follow the FOOTPRINTS of shaitan’. (Al-Quranul Kareem 24:21)
Did you realise the meaning of it?
Forget about shaitan, the person, you need to TRACK the footprints of shaitan.
Your knowledge of Deen has to equip you with the tools, with such a device that can TRACK the footprints of shaitan.
You know how the experts use to track and follow someone in the desert or in the jungle!
They don’t need to see the person went through this path.
They look for the signs, footprints or anything that gives a clue of the person.
Your Rabb wanted you to be such an expert about shaitan.
You Rabb wanted you to gain such expertise about the footprints of shaitan.
Your Rabb wanted you to be equipped with the tools to TRACK the footprints of shaitan.
And if you didn’t, then, what benefit the knowledge of Deen could bring to you?
Did you forget to make this Dua, “Allahumma Inni Aujubika Min Ilman Na’afian”?
Then how come your knowledge was not able to make you expert to understand the footprints of shaitan?
May Allah protect you and me from shaitan. And May Allah guide you and me.
Let’s now get to the topic we wanted to discuss.
What do you do about the thing called ‘Face Painting’?
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam CURSED those who does tattoos. (Saheeh Bukhari 4604)
You know this Hadith, don’t you?
It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah said:
“Allaah has cursed the women who do tattoos and those who ask for tattoos to be done, those who ask for their eyebrows to be plucked, and the women ask for their teeth to be filed for the purpose of beautification, changing the creation of Allaah.”
A woman from the tribe of Bani Asad whose name was Umm Ya’qoob heard of that and she came and said, “I have heard that you have cursed So and so and So and so.” He said,
“Why should I not curse those whom the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed and who are mentioned in the Book of Allaah?’
She said, “I have read what is between the two covers [of the Qur’aan], and I did not find anything in it like what you have said.” He said, “If you have read it, have you not read that Allaah says,
‘And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad) gives you, take it; and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it)’
She said, “Of course.” He said, “He forbade that.” She said, “I think your wife does it.” He said, “Go and look.” So she went and looked and she did not see what she was looking for. He said, “If she had been like that, she would not be with us.”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4604; Muslim, 2125
Is making Kids love something today would make them dislike it tomorrow?
Does this Face Painting has the potential to lead to the tattoos?
And what do I mean by ‘potential’?
If you like and love something in your childhood, would you hate that thing when you get into adulthood?
Rather a child would like it to have it on arms when he/she already loves it having it on the face today.
But when you warn those who run a ‘Muslim’ school or ‘Islamic’ programs and make a lot of fun of ‘Face Painting’,
They reply, “They are Just Kids”
O My brother,
Today, they are ‘Just Kids’ and it is just on the face and they like it, they find it beautiful.
Tomorrow they will like it doing on the arm, on the neck,
specially when they find 8 people out of 10 have got tattoos on them,
only because you choose to live ‘happily ever after’ and raise your kids in the Kuffar’s environment,
Don’t you have the least understanding of human psychology and behavior?
If it is not the footprint of shaitan, then what knowledge of Deen you got my brother?
How that knowledge is benefiting you?
Do you have to take everything that Kuffar’s teach you?
Do you just have to follow the Kuffar’s path in each single things?
How do you make kids to dislike something?
Let me put it this way.
How do you teach about a Haram thing to your children?
What do you do to prevent your children from doing it?
Let’s understand this by bringing a Haram thing, Alcohol.
What do you do to teach your children about alcohol being Haram?
You teach them about it.
You warn them, you make them aware of the consequences of doing it.
Then after this, you go further to make sure they get to the correct MINDSET about it.
Therefore, you make them dislike it.
You keep them far away from those people who drink it.
You don’t take your children near it.
You don’t let your children take these people as friends.
You close all the doors that could lead your children to Alcohol.
You make your children hate it.
That’s what “not following the ‘footprint’ of shaitan”.
Then don’t you understand, what mindset you are giving to your children to this Haram Tattoo thing?
And then don’t you understand that your knowledge didn’t give you the TOOL to TRACK the footprints of shaitan?
And then don’t you understand how shaitan has put blindness on your eyes while you have no idea you are following the footprints of shaitan?
And Allah knows best.
