'Shirk' Khan needs to repent and restore his Aqeedah!

I am referring to the Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan who obviously has yet to learn about the true aspects of being a Muslim.


He confesses to not having been raised as a proper Muslim in the video here. Thus his being in a state of Syirk towards Allahu Rabbi when he ignorantly places the Holy Al Quranul Karim besides the idols representing the Hindu gods and raises his children from his Hindu wife practicing pluralism in his faiths yet professing to love Allah very much.


Its a pity that one so adored by so many is quite oblivious to the fact that our Islamic creed is based on the Oneness of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.


Surah Al Ikhlas Chapter 112 Verses 1 to 4:



112:1
Transliteration
Qul huwa Allahu ahad
Sahih International
Say, "He is Allah , [who is] One,
112:2
Transliteration
Allahu assamad
Sahih International
Allah , the Eternal Refuge.
112:3

Lam yalid walam yoolad
Sahih International
He neither begets nor is born,
112:4
Transliteration
Walam yakun lahu kufuwan ahad
Sahih International
Nor is there to Him any equivalent."



I just don't understand how someone so prominent in the Indian public eye could be just allowed to go about ruining his aqeedah by mix-matching his faith of Al Islam with Hinduism?


Are the Ulama's of India deaf, dumb and blind to Shah Rukh's shirk?





The blessed prophets of Allahu Ta'ala starting from our Father Adam Alaihis Salam right down to the 124,000 prophets and messengers of Allah through the ages taught and guided their people to worship none other than Allah the Almighty, Most Supreme and Most Compassionate God and Creator of us all.


The Islamic Attestation to Faith in Allahu Ta'ala as our Absolute God and confirming in Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam being Allah's (Final) Messenger is the bedrock of our faith.


Shah Rukh Khan can still return to the Maghfirah (Forgiveness) of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala if he repents @ Taubat in the true sense of the word and get his wife and children to be Muslims as well.


Surely Shah Rukh Khan loves his wife and kids. So, he must with all his might and free will learn about Islam and the fundamentals of our faith of Al Islam.


If he can learn his movie scripts and bring out his best performances for his Bollywood movie roles as successfully as he has done in his career, then truly learning about what Islam really is should be a cinch for him.


A true Muslim worships no other god but Allahu Ta'ala.


His ignorance in placing Allahu Ta'ala alongside the Hindu gods his wife worships is very much regretted and as a fellow Muslim, I sincerely call upon Shah Rukh Khan to return to Al Islam both in body and soul.


There is no room in our faith to accommodate any other deity or god but Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. Committing Shirk and Blasphemy towards Allah is one of the gravest sins that any Muslim can commit knowingly or otherwise.


Shah Rukh Khan can't deny that he knows exactly what he is doing and has done so far.


He has appeared in talk shows and spoke about this many times.


I wonder how the so called Muslim leaders of India have remained silent about this apparent act of Shirik committed by a famous Bollywood actor amongst their midst and allowed him to live in sin all these while?


Shirik towards Allah is no small thing. Remaining silent about it and choosing not to forbid Shah Rukh Khan from putting himself and his family in peril is tantamount to being his accomplices in this major khurafat!


For all the legions of Islamic scholars being churned out from the various madrassas of India, how come nobody bothers to address this issue?



Hadith 35 Arabic text

Abu Hurairah, radiyallahu 'anhu, reported that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, said:
"Do not be envious of one another; do not artificially inflate prices against one another; do not hate one another; do not shun one another; and do not undercut one another in business transactions; and be as fellow-brothers and servants of Allah.
A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He neither oppresses him nor humiliates him nor looks down upon him. Piety is here - and he pointed to his chest three times. It is evil enough for a Muslim to hold his brotherMuslim in contempt. All things of a Muslim are inviolable for another Muslim: his blood, his property and his honour."


I hope that those who are close to Shah Rukh Khan reading this will pass the message to him, advising him to please get guidance from any Muslim scholar that he is familiar with and go about taking steps to repent towards Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala as soon as he can.


It is wajib upon every Muslim who is close to Shah Rukh Khan to stop him from going on with this major sin. The Doors of Forgiveness of Allahu Rabbul Alamin is wide open for those of us who seek His Pardon.


He is our brother in Islam and it is our duty to help him return to the true path of Al Islam. I do not have access to him personally but through this blog, I reach out to him with the fervent hope that he gets wind of this plea for him to save himself and his beloved family from the Hellfire for associating Allahu Ta'ala with other deities.


Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The gates of Jannah are opened on Mondays and Thursdays, and then every slave (of Allah) is granted forgiveness if he does not associate anything with Allah in worship. But the person in whose heart there is rancour against his (Muslim) brother, they will not be pardoned and with regard to them it will be said twice: 'Hold both of them until they are reconciled with each other."' [Muslim].


Truly the Holy Quran is crystal clear about the prohibition of committing Shirk. In Surah An Nisa Chapter 4 Verse 48, Allahu Ta'ala reveals :


4:48
Transliteration
Inna Allaha la yaghfiru an yushraka bihi wayaghfiru ma doona thalika liman yashaq waman yushrik billahi faqadi iftara ithman AAatheema
Sahih International
Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin. 


May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala guide Shah Rukh Khan and others like him to return to the Path of Tawheed.



Sayyidina Abu Bakar As Siddiq Radhiaalahu Anhu has narrated that Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam said : “Shirk in my Ummah is much more hidden than the pace of an ant crawling upon a black stone.


Shirk is very hidden. It enters the heart very silently and very few are saved from it.


Upon hearing this, Sayyidina Abu Bakar As Siddiq Radhiaalahu Anhu asked : “How can one be saved from it?”


Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam said : “ Should I not show you such a supplication (dua) that if you recite it, you will be free from minor and major shirk.”


Sayyidina Abu Bakar As Siddiq Radhiaalahu Anhu requested him to do so. 


Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam instructed him to say :


“Allahumma innee a’oozu bika min an ushrika bika shay-a`w wa-ana a’alam wa-astaghfiruka limaa laa a’alam.”


meaning “O Allah, I seek protection in You from that I ascribe partners to You knowingly and I seek forgiveness from You for those things which I do not know.”


Minor Shirk is the doing of good deeds for show, name, fame or recognition from mankind. 


What Shah Rukh Khan has done is of the major Shirk category. The only way out is Taubat Al Nasuha. In Surah Az Zumar Chapter 39 Verse 53 Allahu Ta'ala decrees :



39:53
Transliteration
Qul ya AAibadiya allatheenaasrafoo AAala anfusihim la taqnatoo min rahmatiAllahi inna Allaha yaghfiru aththunoobajameeAAan innahu huwa alghafooru arraheem
Sahih International
Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful."




Truly Allah the Most Merciful will forgive those of us who sin and want to repent sincerely. Do not lose hope of His Forgiveness. He will forgive those who truly repent. Not repent today and return to committing sin tomorrow. 


Those who do that risk being condemned to an eternal suffering for He Knows very well what's hidden in our hearts. Do not pretend before Allahu Ta'ala!




On this blessed Yaum al Jumaat, I ask that you who are true Muslims join me in prayer that our brother Shah Rukh Khan will be given Allah's Taufik and Hidayah to repent and become a Muslim in all aspects and be free of this ignorance currently misleading him.


May his wife and kids get Allah's Guidance as well and join Shah Rukh in our Islamic faith.


Ameen. Ya Rabbal Alameen.
