“Assalaatu” is Not Islamic: Stop attending “Assalaatu” every Sunday, See why you should stop.
It is so surprising seeing thousands of Muslims attending “Assalaatu” every Sunday and have turned it to their weekly routine.
This is a Bid’iah (Innovation) and the prophet (saw) has warned us regarding innovation into the Religion of Islam.
And also ALLAAH the exalted perfected this religion HIMSELF for the prophet which means anything not done by the prophet and the four Caliphates cannot be part of our religion.
Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 3:
الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ فِي مَخْمَصَةٍ غَيْرَ مُتَجَانِفٍ لِّإِثْمٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favor on you and chosen for you Islam as a religion; but whoever is compelled by hunger, not inclining willfully to sin, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
(English – Shakir)
Prophet Muhammad (saw) also warns us in his Hadith:
The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) told us that: “Every innovation is going astray, and every going astray will be in the Fire.” Narrated by Muslim (867)
Also, It is an act of imitating the Christian. Because you hear many of them saying if there’s not gathering on Sundays for Muslims like Assalaatu, many Muslims will be going to church. Any Muslim that goes to Church because he/she is idle on Sunday is not a Muslim in the first place.
It was narrated from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “You will certainly follow the ways of those who came before you hand span by hand span, cubit by cubit, to the extent that if they entered the hole of a lizard, you will enter it too.” We said: “O Messenger of Allaah, (do you mean) the Jews and the Christians?” He said: “Who else?”.
This hadeeth indicates that it is haraam to imitate the Jews and the Christians, and that those who follow them and tread the same path as them are criticized. Islam has reinforced this prohibition, by describing those who imitate the kuffaar as being of them.
In conclusion, attending these Assalaatu is wrong and let’s desist from it.
