Abu Muhammad Nezam Al-Hindi

Shaykh Muqbil Ibn Hādī Al-Wādi’i (رحمهالله) said:

“Those jam’iyyāt, which are not permitted to be established except upon the condition that it is under the control of the social affairs committee and upon the condition that it has elections in it, and that it puts its wealth in usury based banks and next they deceive the people saying: Is building mosques, digging wells, and taking care of orphans forbidden? It is said to them: Oh you deceivers! Who said that these affairs are forbidden? It is ḥizbiyyah which is forbidden and division of the muslims and wasting their time in begging. Verily, ‘Umrah trips in the month of Ramaḍān has been turned into an opportunity to beg (by making it a trip to ask money from the wealthy people in Saudi Arabia).

يا مشعر القراء ويا ملح البلد … ما يصلح الملح إذا الملح فسد

Oh scholars! Oh you the cream of the land! Who will rectify the cream if it spoils?”

Taken from the foreword of the book: Dhamm-ul-Mas’alah (Blameworthiness of begging) by Imām Muqbil Al-Wādi’i – May Allāh have mercy upon him
