“Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem”
-in the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful-
Faaizas point of view
I watched the smirk on ismails face wondering now what in the world was up with him…?
I am now officially convinced that this man is bipolar.. One minute his angry, the next his mourning and then suddenly a burst of excitement…
“What happened babes?” I asked curiously
“I got some news for you….” He bagan shaking his head.. “This family all has skeletons in the closet that are slowly but surely all coming out…” He gave an excited laugh..
I dropped my petty issues aside for the moment and listened attentively now..
“What? What now?”
“Chotikhala is having an affair… She was caught red handed…” Ismail said
“An affair? Babes.. She’s not even married… An affair is when you’re married and cheat on your spouse..” I rolled my eyes
“Yeah well its an affair because he’s a married man…and you’ll never guess who he is….” I could see he wanted to just blurt it out now
I raised my eyebrow…” Who?”
“My father…. ” And ismail burst out laughing while I stood there like I’d just seen a ghost with my hands to my mouth in disbelief
“Aaah…astaghfirullah….. That’s… Just disgusting… With his wifes sister who’s old enough to be his daughter? Urgh.. What is this world coming to.. Yaa Allah…” I sat down and tried to process all of this
“Wait a second..are you just assuming things? Because you do know that its a major gunaah… Its a major sin babes to accuse someone of committing zina and having an affair… Its just wrong…” I said seriously
It is… We all have a habit of assuming things from time to time and accusing every second person of having an affair… But we don’t realise that saying that means that we have to be 100 percent sure that its true.. We had to have seen it with our own eyes.. Because if its not true and we’re actually slandering someone of something that they’re not even guilty of is a grave grave sin in the eyes of Allah…
How many times do we hear people saying: “she’s having an affair with him and so and so is having an affair with so and so.. But we have no solid evidence for this and just say it because those are the rumours circulating.
“Surely those who accuse chaste believing women, unaware (of the evils), are cursed in the world and the hereafter and they shall have a grievous chastisement. On the day when their tongue and their hands and their feet shall bear witness against them as to what they did.” (Surah an-Nūr 24:23-24)
The above verses clarify that those who falsely accuse chaste men or women of adultery are cursed by Allah (S.w.T.) as long as they are alive, and in the hereafter they shall be deprived of His Divine mercy.
“Babes… Why would I make up something like that? Am I that stupid? Phone salma yourself and ask her if you don’t believe me..” He defended himself..
“Salma? How would salma know?” I was even more curious now
“Because salma and aQeel seen them being all lovey dovey.. No decency even.. Right outside some flat on their way home… That man is crazy I tell you.. Couldn’t he atleast do things abit more discreetly? Eish!”
“Oh my word.. And she was living with them.. I remember kulsum saying that she moved out to stay on her own but she didn’t want anyone to know where she was going to live.. And we were even wondering where she all of a sudden got so much of money for her own flat..” I blabbed away
“Maybe that’s where he’s disappearing to everytime.. I wonder what his wonderful wife will do when she finds out that her baby sister is sleeping with her own husband..?” Ismail continued
Poor woman.. She’s always so caught up in interfering and ruining everyone elses lives, little does she realise what’s actually happening in her own home..
“They were probably doing it right under her nose all this time and she didn’t even know a thing… This is so sick.. Really.. What is this world coming to?.. Qiyaamat, the Last day, is really near..” I said shaking my head disbelievingly.
From amongst the signs of qiyamah is that adultery and fornication will become more rife and common.. Just looking at the signs which nabi(Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) fore warned us about, all the signs have already occurred.. Now we’re just waiting for the major ones like the coming of imam mahdi and dajjaal etc..
“So what do you think? Should we let the cat out of the bag? Or act like we don’t know anything?” Ismail asked with an evil smile playing on his face
