In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Masjid al_Dirar to Harm/Disunion Believers
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

وَالَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مَسْجِدًا ضِرَارًا وَكُفْرًا وَتَفْرِيقًا بَيْنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَإِرْصَادًا لِّمَنْ حَارَبَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ مِن قَبْلُ وَلَيَحْلِفُنَّ إِنْ أَرَدْنَا إِلَّا الْحُسْنَىٰ وَاللَّهُ يَشْهَدُ إِنَّهُمْ لَكَاذِبُونَ

And those who built a Masjid al_Diarar (Opposition Masjid) for causing harm, mischief and disbelief, as well as disunion among believers and as an ambush/outpost for anyone who has already warred against Allah and His Messenger before will swear: "We only wanted to be kind/good!" Allah bears witness that they are most surely liars.

Although we are supposed to have one unified of worshipping method but you will see among Muslims widely divided and acting like building more and more Masjids like Masjid al_Dirar (Opposition Masjid), and Allah might reject all those who deviate from the Quraanic Guidance in sprit. Trees are recognized by their fruits. You can see present condition of Muslims in the beginning of 21st Century who are widely divided and being wiped out one after another and becoming history for few Centuries.

The hypocrites were always planning to create dissensions amongst the Muslims. They had long been scheming to erect at this place a mosque, to rival that of Quba. Their pretentious was that the People, who were unable to go to the Prophet’s Masjid owing to their infirmity or for any other reasons, might offer their prayers there. ABU AMIR, a Medinite, who had turned Christian, had asked the Hypocrites to start their preparations AS HE WAS GOING TO ASK HERACLEUS FOR MILITARY AID, SO THAT THE COUNTRY MIGHT BE PURGED OF ISLAM. (Zurqani, volume 3, page 91) (Sirat-Un-Nabi (‘The Life Of The Prophet’] [Rendered Into English by M. Tayyib Bakhsh Budayuni – Idarah-I Adabiyati-I Delli, 2009 Qasimjan St, Delhi (India), 1983] by Allama Sibli Nu’mani, volume 2, page 238 – 239).

Basic concept of the Quraan is to invite people towards One God (Allah), One Religion (Islaam), One Sect, One Holy Book (the Quraan) and One Worshipping Method BUT with wisdom, and without any force. Only allowed is to do positive dialogue with wisdom. Entering into your own house from main entrance is in the Quraan, (Ref: Al_Quraan_002:189).

Invite (all) to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for your Lord knows best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance, (Al_Quraan_016.125).

Those who divide their religion and break up into sects, they don't have anything in ISLAAM, (Ref: Al_Quraan_006.159).

If you DIFFER in anything (Faith, Salaat, Sayaam, Zakaat, etc.) amongst yourself, then REFER to Allah and his Messenger (Quraan), if you really believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for determinations, (Ref: Al_Quraan_004.059).

Celebration of Eid and starting of Ramadaan has become a BIG Joke in the Global Muslim World, who are widely divided and celebrating their Eid, or starting their Fasting on 2 to 3 different days. Don't forget that there is only one Sun, one Earth and its one Moon. Thanks to Allah, Fridays are not decided by moon sightings otherwise it could be real mess.

Allah already mentioned the solution of moon sighting in the Quraan very CLEARLY that it MUST be according to Makkah Islaamic Calendar globally depending upon Very First Visible Birth of the Moon near the House of Allah (Kabah) for the whole world, NOT according to any other specific region/area/house/ or backyard, and we must take guidance from the Quraan to perform Hajj for all Muslims around the Globe and not very specific to one region, do fasting in the month of Ramadaan and celebrate Eid, GLOBALLY and follow one Makkah Islaamic Calendar globally in the light of Quraan (book of guidance), (Ref: Al_Quraan_002.189, 003.096, 006.096, 010.005).

They ask you (Muhammad {Peace be Upon Him}) about the (visible) phases of the moon! Say, They provide a timing device for the Global People, and Determine the Time of HAJJ (in Makkah for the whole world Globally), and it is not righteousness that you should enter the houses by back doors, but righteousness is this that one should guard (against evil); and go into the houses by their (main) doors and be careful (of your duty) to Allah, that you may be successful, (Al_Quraan, { Surah Al-baqara} 002.189).

In the above verses Allah is clearly mentioning that the Phase of the Moon is to Determine the Time of HAJJ and Do Not create your personal calendar, rather build one unified Global Islaamic Calendar which must follow Makkah Islaamic Calendar.

Years, Months and Days are GLOBAL while Salaat Time is Local. Also the day JUMA is GLOABL while its prayer time is Local, and is similar to New Year on 1st January, but its breakfast, lunch and dinner etc. times are local.

Allah told to face Makkah means follow Makkah and get guidance from Makkah for Hajj, Umrah, Salaat, Ramadaan and Eid etc., and do not divide Religion Islaam, since those who Divide their Religion and break up into Sects, thou hast NO part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah, (Ref: Al_Quraan_002.125-129, 002.130-138, 002.142-144, 002.149-150, 002.189, 003.095-097, 003.103, 003.106, 006.096, 006.159, 010.005).

As an example to understand, if suppose Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) is alive today, and he has to start Ramadaan or celebrate Eid today in Masjid-e-Nabvi, then which day will you do start fasting or celebrate Eid?

We must unite all on ONE method of worship of Prophet Ibraheem (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) by taking guidance from the Quraan. If you are not following Makkah to Establish Salaat, Celebrate Ramadaan, Eid, Hajj etc., then you are dividing Religion Islaam and your matter is with Allah alone, (Ref: Al_ Quraan_002.001-005, 002.125-129, 002.130-138, 002.142-144, 002.149-150, 002.189, 003.095-097, 003.103, 003.106, 006.096, 006.159, 010.005).

Only TWO types of Masjids are allowed in the Quraan, Global and Local:

First one is Global and it is Al_Masjid al-Haram (Kaaba) in Makkah al-Mukarram, Saudi Arabia, to perform Hajj and Umrah, uniting Global Muslim Ummah at one place, get the benefits from here, and see few signs of Allah, in addition to establishing regular five times prayers as well as additional prayers including Tahajjud Prayers according to local time. Remember, it is the first worshiping place and center of the guidance for the mankind.

Second one is Masjid al-Nabawi in Madinah al-Munawarah, Saudi Arabia. It is a Role Model for all local Masjids, since Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) used this as a Role Model to perform many duties including following:

1>    Trained Muslim Ummah which includes, children, adults (men and women). Trainings were superb in all disciplines including Multi-Faith / Multi-Sect Friendly Dialogues, Defense and of course the Quraan, Quranic Arabic Language for Non-Arabs and proved that it was the best up-to-date institution in the whole world at the time of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him).

2>    Established the best Judicial System in the whole world at the time of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him).

3>    Established the best Community Centre to help Humanity.

Challenges are a lot from around the globe. Now it is time for all of us to open our eyes and return back and reflect on the message of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him). Our Masjid must be fully equipped with the help of modern technologies to perform all activities which is according to the Quraan.

Convert all old Masjids by applying modern technologies wherever possible and which are in accordance to the Quraan. Also, make sure to have separate special arrangements for women.

If building new Masjids, please ensure that it is taking true guidance from Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and applying all the modern technologies wherever possible and which are in accordance to the Quraan. Also, make sure to have separate special arrangements for women.

Few Guidelines for all Local Masjids:

1>    Must have a Prayer Hall for regular five times of prayers for men and women.

2>    Must have Modern Islaamic Library for children and adults (men and women).

3>    Must have an institution (e.g. School, College and University) to train our kids and adults (men and women) to face all the modern challenges, which are according to Quraan.

4>    Must have convertible hall, to be used during Friday Prayers, Eid Prayers, Gym for exercises/marshals-arts, Islaamic Marriage Ceremony, Quranic Arabic Language for Non-Arabs and Multi-Faith / Multi-Sect Friendly Dialogues etc.

5>    Must have Funeral Home.

6>    Masjid must need to be Germs Free. If someone has sickness which might spread, even like Flue or Cough, he/she must avoid going to Masjid till it is under control and not spreadable. Shoes/Sleepers must be kept outside the Prayers Hall to avoid Germs going inside. Even someone might have very allergic to Perfumes, Peanuts etc.

Reviving Masjids during Severe Global Economic Downtime:

Saving a life is like save whole world, wastage and extra expense is totally against the Quraan. Not a sincere Muslim can do wastage, regardless of rich, poor, or kings etc. When billions of people around the Globe are in Extreme Poverty and Extreme Famine, no true Muslims can even think of wastage, over expending, building extra expensive Masjids only for Friday Prayers while rest of the week no public benefits for study, counseling etc.

While humanity is badly suffering from Extreme Poverty and Famine, expensive GHILAF-E-KAABA etc. must be replaced with more economical materials e.g., waterproof and rust proof materials and paintings to last longer to save future expense as well. Do more research and plan for thousands of years to last it with just washing with water regularly and polishing once or twice a year.

Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).

None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah BUT those who Disbelieve …, (Al_Quraan_040.004).

True/Real Muslims Unite Ummah-e-Ibraheem <---> False/Fake Muslims (Hypocrites) Divide Ummat-e-Ibrahim.
