Do not abuse the Imams!
Message from the Chairman
Many members of the mosque because of ignorance, and sometimes deliberately give money for certain services in the hands of the priest. And no one thinks, and whether it is right. From the side like a bribe traffic police inspector - like as a matter of course.
But this is not correct. You have not broken any rules. And it's not expensive, but life with its rules, which are clearly defined in our charter - the Holy Quran: "Do not misappropriate the property of each other and do not bribe this [property] judges to deliberately set the part of the property of [other] people's sinful way" and in the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam): "Allah has cursed the one who gives and takes a bribe."
In order not to disrupt the way of life, study the Koran and hadith of our Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam). Bring donations to the mosque is not forbidden, but on the contrary - is welcome. With this money, and there is a mosque, where you can come and ask God for forgiveness of their sins, as Allah said in the Qur'an: "Verily, Allah loves those who repent." The money is going to benefit: from them to pay the salary imams, teachers, utilities mosques and salary support staff (guards, janitors, cleaners). Dear parishioners, I want to explain that in the mosque, there are special boxes "sadaqah", where you can put your donations. Once a week a special audit committee of three counts the money in the presence of all the members in the record amount of donations bound and numbered log. By the way the course money can watch any of the parishioners who live in our city. All this is done to ensure that there was a so-called "white box office." White, so pure, because Islam - a religion of purity.
Putting money into the hands of the priest, we thus corrupts it, and then start his own curse and gossip behind him, "Look, it changes the car one by one, building houses instead of mosques ...". But if you think about it, then blame ourselves. It should not be corrupt imams, because they, as well as we are exposed to temptation.
Based on the above, we can draw the following conclusions:
1. Giving money in the hands of the priest - it is a sin, as we enter the human temptation.
2. Breeding gossip about priests - is a greater sin. Following hadith clearly indicates just how humiliating position gossip. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: "Gossip is worse than adultery." The companions asked, "O Messenger of Allah! As gossip may be worse than adultery? "Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said:" If a person who has committed adultery, ask for forgiveness, Allah will forgive him, and Whisperer will not be forgiven, until he was just someone who he gossiping. "
Dear parishioners! Let us God-fearing, will not sin ourselves and put in a sinful condition of our brothers and sisters.
Faced with this more than once wanted to write my first article in our paper on this theme.
Peace be upon you and the mercy of God and His blessing!
Best regards and good prayers for all your good works,
Chairman IIWG "Nur" Saifutdinov Rishat Abdraufovich
