THEY HAVE LOST ALL VESTIGES OF MODESTY, HENCE THEY SPEAK DRIVEL!
Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “One of the admonitions of the previous Prophets which has been conveyed to people is that if you have no modesty, you can do whatever you like.” [Bukhari]
A recent ‘fatwa’ from Jamiat KZN proves without a shadow of doubt that those molvis are on the brink of losing their Imaan, since their modesty has left them.
عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ قَالَ: إِنَّ الْحَيَاءَ وَالإِيمَانَ قُرِنَا جَمِيعًا، فَإِذَا رُفِعَ أَحَدُهُمَا رُفِعَ الآخَرُ
Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Umar (radhiallahu anhu) said, “Indeed modesty and Imaan are intertwined. When the one is removed, the other follows.”
According to these ‘muftis’ a pap-smear or insertion of an obscene device into the female private part does not break the fast. Besides their ‘fatwa’ being totally incorrect, misleading and bunkum they speak of a ‘pap-smear’ so nonchalantly that one gets the impression they never had modesty to begin with. Their objective was to show their academic prowess by pointing out that “the female genital organs are not connected to the stomach in any way.” All they did was prove their ignorance. They have ruled contrary to all the senior Fuqaha of the past!
In order to set this record straight, it should be well understood that: THE INSERTION OF ANY MEDICATION OR WET INSTRUMENT OR FINGER INTO THE FEMALE PRIVATE PART, AND ALSO THE PROCEDURE CALLED A ‘PAP-SMEAR’, NOT ONLY BREAKS THE FAST, BUT IT EVEN RENDERS GHUSAL WAAJIB!
Our Deen and the beloved Sunnah of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) teaches modesty. Nay, not only teaches modesty, but places such great emphasis on it that it has been incorporated as being an integral part of our Imaan!
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ :الإِيمَانُ بِضْعٌ وَسَبْعُونَ شُعْبَةً وَالْحَيَاءُ شُعْبَةٌ مِنَ الإِيمَانِ
Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (radhiallahu anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Imaan comprises over seventy branches and modesty is a branch of Imaan.” [Muslim]
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ “ إِنَّ لِكُلِّ دِينٍ خُلُقًا وَخُلُقُ الإِسْلاَمِ الْحَيَاءُ
Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Every religion has its distinct characteristic, and the distinct characteristic of Islam is modesty.” [Ibn Majah]
The ‘logic’ behind the total impermissibility of the pap-smear procedure is not ‘rocket-science’. Anyone querying this from us afterwards needs to feel ashamed. A pap-smear is done mostly as a routine procedure to check for cancer. In fact, even if the doctor feels strongly that the patient has signs of cancer, even then it would be demeaning for a Muslimah to undergo this procedure which not merely borders pornographic, it is virtually just that. The posture of the woman undertaking this procedure is akin to the solicitation of a prostitute. A woman lies there baring the most vital private part of her body. Forget the impermissibility of a male doctor, it is even totally haraam for a female to look and touch another woman in such intimate portions of her body. Giving birth would be the only time a woman may expose her satr in this way. What boggles the mind is, leave alone an honourable Muslim woman refusing such a procedure in the first place, they even contemplate subjecting themselves to this lewd procedure in the month of Ramadhaan and with roza! Laa Howla wa Laa Quwwata! Immorality shrouded in immorality!
The ruling regarding the satr of women is well-known. It is not permissible for a woman to even unnecessarily expose her hair in front of a non-Muslim woman. Modesty is so intricate to our Deen, that the angels of mercy do not enter the home where the hair of a woman is exposed. The Qur`aan Majeed forbids a woman to walk in such a way that her shoes/trinklets make a sound. So, not just her body, even the sounds emanating from her should be concealed. We are all well aware that when a woman is being buried, a cloth is placed over the grave until the grave is closed. Islam even guards a woman’s chastity and modesty after she dies. The purpose of this cloth at the grave is so that her body shape not be distinguishable to the men. The dead body is not desirable, except to necrophiliacs, and yet our Deen guards a woman’s modesty until that last moment on earth!
Considering these precautions prescribed by our Deen, how can it ever be fathomed that a woman undergoes a pap-smear, laying there like a whore, merely to test for a possible infection. In fact, even if a doctor is certain that a woman has cancer, even then, no modest Muslimah will subject herself to such degradation!
We reiterate – not only does the fast and ghusal of a woman break by taking this pap-smear orgy-like procedure, but her very Imaan is at stake and on the brink of vanishing.
A mufti, of all people, should know full well that when answering a question, naseehat is of utmost importance. Together with answering the question – which the KZN mufti incorrectly did in this case anyway – the mufti should advise the questioner where applicable. Not only did the mufti lie in his answer, he failed to admonish the questioner and advise her on the importance of modesty.
We appeal to all sane readers to reflect on the Hadith below:
عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ قَالَ “ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِذَا أَرَادَ أَنْ يُهْلِكَ عَبْدًا نَزَعَ مِنْهُ الْحَيَاءَ فَإِذَا نَزَعَ مِنْهُ الْحَيَاءَ لَمْ تَلْقَهُ إِلاَّ مَقِيتًا مُمَقَّتًا
“When Allah Azza wa Jalla intends to destroy a person, He takes away modesty from him, and when modesty is snatched from him, you will not find him except as loathsome, detestable and abhorred by people.” [Ibn Majah]
May Allah Ta`ala guide this Ummah.
