Assalamualaikum Muhtaram Mufti Saheb. We make Dua Mufti Saheb is well insha Allah.
There’s a video clip doing its rounds of with a caption that says… Saudi Lady who ran away from Saudi to live in Canada.
The video shows this lady on stage dressed badly and dancing like a maniac to the music. Next thing the music stops and she lifts up her one arm (with alot of her skin exposed) then (Nauthubillah) she starts to recite Surah Fatiha on the mic as though she’s singing a song , with all the people watching her and cheering.
This is so scary, people have taken gunaa to a totally new level.
Perhaps the senior Ulema should address this with the Canadian ulema. Also this comes in the wake of this event which is taking place in Canada which they are calling a ladies only night club party. I have the poster which came around on whatsapp, which reads “Music On Hijaabs off” and “All night clubbing experience for Muslim ladies, and”Keeping it Halal”
In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
It is unfortunate to hear of such events. We have looked into the matter.
The lady you refer to is Rahaf Kunun. She is a lady that has renounced Islam for many years. She fled Saudi Arabia and caught media attention through twitter. She is now being used as a tool against Islam. It does not come to a surprise that she is committing such vile acts.
As for the poster of “Music on Hijaabs off.” Many Canadian Ulema have denounced such activities through the means of social media. They also concluded that the organizers of the events do not appear to be Muslims. Upon contacting the number on the poster, they spoke to the organizer. The organizer did not have a name that appeared to be Muslim. When they asked him whether or not he was Muslim, he refused to disclose his religion. Furthermore, the restaurant that is being used as a venue, is a restaurant owned by Iranian Shias.
