ISLAM-RAMADAN AND FOOTBALL (BRAZIL 2014)
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem:
Ramadan the Holy Month: Satan making New Generation and Old Generation to worship at the Temple of Lawless Gods!
In Islam, sports is not a commercial activity, it does not support any evil stick to sports.
It is evident that Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and Companions used to engage in sports and games. But in a manner that respect the life style of religion and the Commandments of God!
Narrated ‘Aisha: Once I saw Allah’s Apostle at the door of my house while some Ethiopians were playing in the mosque (displaying their skill with spears). Allah’s Apostle was screening me with his Rida’ so as to enable me to see their display. (‘Urwa said that ‘Aisha said, “I saw the Prophet and the Ethiopians were playing withtheir spears.”) [Sahih Bukhari, Book #8, Hadith#445]
Quran 2:208 O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.
Chapter (5) sūrat l-māidah (The Table spread with Food)
O you who have believed, do not violate the rites of Allah or [the sanctity of] the sacred month or [neglect the marking of] the sacrificial animals and garlanding [them] or [violate the safety of] those coming to the Sacred House seeking bounty from their Lord and [His] approval. But when you come out of iúram, then [you may] hunt. And do not let the hatred of a people for having obstructed you from al-Masjid al-haram lead you to transgress. And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.
A true Muslim: “Say: Indeed my prayer, and my sacrifice, and my living, and my dying are for none other than Allah, Lord of all that exists.” [Al-Qur’an 6:162]
“Fasting is not abstaining from eating and drinking alone, but it is also abstaining from vain speech and foul language. If one of you is being cursed or annoyed, he should say: I am fasting, I am fasting.” [Narrated by al-Bukhari and by Muslim]
“Allah does not need the fast of the one who does not abandon falsehood in speech or in action.” [Narrated with this wording by Ibn Khuzaymah, Ibn Hibban, and al-Hakim. The key portion of the hadith can also be found in al-Bukhari and Muslim]
“Perhaps a fasting person will get nothing from his fast except hunger, and perhaps the one who stands to pray at night will get nothing from his prayer except tiredness.” [Narrated by an-Nisa’i, Ibn Majah, and al-Hakim]
Life Must be According to the Book of Allah and Traditions of His Prophets:
“Say (O Muhammad to the people): ‘If you really love Allah, then follow me. And He (Allah) in return will love you, and will forgive you for you sins, and indeed Allah is oft-forgiving and most merciful.’ Say: ‘Obey Allah and the Messenger’, and if they turn away, then verily Allah does not love the disbelievers.” [Al-Qur’an 3:31-32]
Bible: New Testament: Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
THE EVILS THAT ATTACHED TO FOOTBALL/SPONSORED GAMES&SPORTS:
Alcohol, Nudity, Sex, Gambling (betting etc), Free Mixing of Men and Women:
Different Statistics: India condom maker HLL Lifecare, which supplied 342 million pieces to Brazil in 2013, claims, this year demand has spiked. This year, so far, HLL has exported 400 million pieces to Brazil.
On the authority of Abu Saeed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah say, “Whoever of you sees an evil must then change it with his hand. If he is not able to do so, then [he must change it ] with his tongue. And if he is not able to do so, then [he must change it] with his heart. And that is the slightest [effect of] faith.” (Recorded in Muslim)
Bible: New Testament: 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.
Bible Old Testament:Daniel 7:25 He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.
