Islamic Ministry calls for reciting of Qunoot-e-Naazila following unrest in Egypt

Islamic Minister Sheikh Mohamed Shaheem Ali Saeed has called on all Imams to recite the Qunoot after Fajr, Maqrib and Isha prayers, in recognition of the situation in Egypt, reported Sun Online.

According to the Shaafi’ee Madhab, if the Muslim community is being affected by calamity or hardship the Qunoot-e-Naazila may be recited in all prayers.

Sheikh Shaheem told Sun Online that according to the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH), the Qunoot-e-Naazila was to recited when the Muslim community was facing substantial grievance.

The last time Islamic Ministry decided to call for the reciting of the Qunoot-e-Naazila was in November 2009 during the swine flu outbreak.

  1. Yep. That should do it. Praying for world peace and an end to poverty, famine and hunger has always worked. Along with praying for the sick to get better, unless of course this involves an amputee growing a new limb - oh, and the patient isn't a lizard that's lost its tail which does appear to be divinely possible. 🙂

  2. Religion was the cause of this problem. The Muslim Brotherhood enforced new laws in violation of the democratic process against non-Muslims. The destroyed the countries tourist industry and now we see the outcome of involving religion in politics.

    Take note people of the Maldives, your lifeline is tourism and it is dangerously close to being highjacked by uneducated fools who believe religion is the answer to your problems. No one visits Egypt now and they have more to offer than beaches in the sun.

  3. Hahaha! Like that would help anyone in Egypt. Maybe the movements of Shaheems vocal cords would set off a butterfly effect that would restore MB to power.

  4. The article should conclude with a line similar to the following...

    Please enter islamophobic rants below. thank you. Minivan News team.

  5. Islam has got some good aspects too. Promoting health by regular exercise and calmness by yoga.

    Where it fails is the link to divinity. And deep rooting that idea into idiots.

    This is one of those indescribably stupid ideas, for these times.
