Beware of another N2I flash! How could the harbinger of the greatest revolution sit aloof 10 days every year, violate human rights and support monasticism?!
People like "Sheikh" Muhammed Salih al-Munajjid are true Criminals of Islam.
Note from QXP - 2:184
[I’tikaaf = Special task = To be deputed = Extra duty = Unique assignment. ‘Aakifoon = Those on I’tikaaf. Unfortunately, under the Ajami (alien) influences, the concept given to I’tikaaf has reduced this Sublime Ordinance to ten days of ascetic and ritualistic isolation in a mosque in the third part of Ramadhan. Obviously, this invented practice violates the Qur’anic injunctions against monasticism and human rights. (57:27). Libaas = Garment = Raiment embraces all the meanings rendered]
