BismilLaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
Information reaching me from a Muslim brother in Ghana yesterday indicates that some of our Muslim brothers and sisters have turned their daily mode of sustenance into betting or gambling as such I decided to remind ourselves about this evil plot today. It’s important to note as a Muslim that, you can never find peace in life and can never succeed in life if you choose to disobey Allah in anything you do. Our sustenance is with Allah, Satan also has his offer of sustenance so it’s a choice for us to strive the halaal way so that Allah can grant us base on our little efforts but if you chose the satanic way, you’ve really damage your relationship with Allah bcs it means, you are saying Allah is not sufficient for you so you’ve chosen the Satan’s path to fake success. All forms of betting is haraam in Islam.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5, Suurah Maaidah verses 90-91 to the nearest Meaning “O you who believe! Intoxicants, gambling(betting), (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows are an abomination of the Shaytaan’s handiwork: avoid such abomination that you may prosper. Shaytaan’s plan is but to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer: will you not then abstain?” This verse is more than enough for my advice today and in the last part of the verse, Allah is asking you who claim to believe in Him but following satanic path that WILL YOU NOT ABSTAIN OR STOP?
Your response to Allah will help you if indeed you believe in Allah. To be continued in shaa Allaah. May Allah keep guiding us all and protect us and our offspring from any kind of Gambling. Aameen.
