All perfect praise is for Allaah alone. We beseech His peace and blessings upon Muhammad (sollaLloohu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
In continuation of the previous explanations on the nonsensical statements of Rosheed Mustopha, he said, “The most meritorious time I have ever spent (in my life) was my time in the prison. I have never enjoyed anytime other than that in my life. I read Qur’aan till the Qur’aan (itself) almost became tired. There is nothing I was doing (he and his cohorts activated laughing mode). The Qur’aan itself knows that I read it. The same thing with at-tahajjud, I never missed it. Allaah really blessed me in the prison. Allaahu akbar, if not for some of their laws, I would have revealed some things to you. [Time: 43:30-44:11]
One, since he claims that the meritorious time he ever spent in his life was in the prison, why did he leave the prison after the jail term? He should have begged the authorities to let him remain there. Why would a ‘scholar’ leave the place where he worships Allaah the most? My take is, it is very possible that he was only saying those statements to make his rival feel tired and consider going for amnesty, or he was only trying to steal the show.
Two, he said he read the Qur’aan till the Qur’aan itself almost became tired. This is the same muppet who claims that he calls to tawheed. Why would the Qur’aan be tired because of you? This is an offence which if one of his enemies are guilty of, he would possibly make takfeer of the person. We ask him, what is the ruling of this nonsensical statement of yours?
Three, we are afraid that he is possibly showing off with those statements claiming that he did so and so acts of worship in the prison. Who asked him to say those tales by moonlight? The Messenger of Allaah said, “Whoever shows off, Allaah will expose him.” (Narrated by al-Bukhooree and Muslim). Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar (rohimohuLlaah) said: al-Khottoobi said, this means: whoever does something that is not sincerely for the sake of Allaah, merely wanting people to see him and hear him, will be punished for that, Allaah will expose him and make known what he is concealing. It was said that whoever does something with the intention of gaining status and prestige among people, and does not seek the Face of Allaah by doing it, Allaah will make him the subject of bad speech among the people in whose eyes he wanted to gain status, and he will have no reward for it in the Hereafter. (Fathul-Baariy, 11/336).
Rosheed (popularly known as Aboo Ibeji) also said, “Look at this Asrau, he is the head of the Sharee’ah court in Osun over there. They have Sharee’ah court (in Osun), the same way they have it in Ibadan here. He is from the leaders (of the court). If you really have faith and hold the Qur’aan in high esteem, you should have taken the issue to the place. But, (its) because the Qur’aan and Sunnah would be used to judge and daddy (Dr Asrau) won’t be contented with it. That is exactly where his problem is, which he is not revealing to the people. It won’t pay (that is, ‘favour’) him.”
The statement, “Look at this Asrau” is a very good compliment, abi??? This is from the bad mannerisms remaining with him. Anyway, this is fairer in comparison to those statements that landed him in Ilesha prison. I tell you, ‘the boy is coming down gradually’. Before, it used to be statements like ‘nigbesi aye omoyen’, ‘omoyen le ni eda’, and the likes.
Funnily enough, he was expecting his enemy to take the case to the Sharee’ah court in Osun state as if he regards those officials championing it as Muslims. Since he beliefs that his rival, ‘a kaafir’, is from the leaders of the Sharee’ah court, how does he want to sink it down our throat that his rival should have taken it there? What difference does it make to him? A kaafir is a kaafir and there is no such thing as kaafir raised to the power of infinity!
To be continued
May prayers and peace be upon Muhammad (sollaLloohu ‘alayhi wa sallam), his respected household and companions, and on the generality of the Muslims till the end of time.
