THE CURSE AND FITNAH OF THE  WORLD CUP – A TOILET OF EVIL AND IMMORALITY

BY MAULANA ABDUL HAMID ISHAQ (Daamat Barakaatuhum),

PRINCIPAL DARUL ULOOM AZAADVILLE

World Cup = “Waste Closet” & Waste Catastrophe

The toilet is generally not a topic for discussion, but it can serve as an apt analogy at times, and
we can even draw lessons from it. …Looking at how our lives are spent in sins, heedlessness
and waste, we take some lessons.

The toilet has different names: latrine, lavatory, wash room, rest room and water closet – which
certain English speaking people refer to as W.C.!

Presently there is a different W.C. – which, as we know, is the World Cup being hosted in Brazil.
Millions and millions of people, including a large percentage of Muslims, have thrown
themselves headlong into the curse and Fitnah of the World Cup.

And it is, most definitely a curse, bringing with it, multiple Fitnahs and compounded sin: There
is wastage and extravagance; there is alcohol, gambling, music and immoral behaviour
