Special message to Ashraf Choudray

I noted in the news Mr Choudary that you have invested in SkyCity Casino . I have some profound words for you.

[quote]The Noble Qur'an – Al-Ma'idah 5:90, 91

O you who believe! intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al-Ansab (stone alters), and Al-Azlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaytaan's [Satan's] handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.

Shaytaan wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer. So, will you not then abstain?[/quote]


Islam not only prohibits dealing in interest but also in liquor, pork,
gambling, pornography and anything else, which the Shariah (Islamic Law) deems Haram (unlawful). Islamic banking is an instrument for the development of an Islamic economic order.

Some of the salient features of this order may be summed up as:
While permitting the individual the right to seek his economic well-being, Islam makes a clear distinction between what is Halal (lawful) and what is haram (forbidden) in pursuit of such economic activity. In broad terms, Islam forbids all forms of economic activity, which are morally or socially injurious.

Which means that Choudhary's investment in Sky City is utter hypocrisy if Islam believes that Sky City's partying, drinking and gambling isconsidered morally injurious!

     Well, I don’t think that’s right. Muslims can happily live in Western Society

    Fancy being on the operating table of a surgeon who is in the middle of Ramadan?

    Fancy being a passenger of the 737 piloted by his brother?

    How about employing a Muslim worker, who wants to pray 5 times a day?

    Try wearing a Burqa on the beach and convince NZr's that you really do fit in a free society!
