The video of Mufti Tariq Masood is making rounds where he has said some very controversial stuff in this haywire situation of Pakistan. So who is Mufti Tariq Masood and what he said in the video? Well, he has said something which has shook many across the nation.
Bayans of Mufti Tariq Masood are quite popular online. He normally does this bayan at his own mosque in Karachi but he also is quite active online and does that all the time on his website and through whatsapp groups. He also attends several gatherings on demand and travels all over the country as well as internationally. He is quite well known and renowned cleric and not some anonymous religious person. That is why it’s quite surprising to hear what he said.
A full time scholar of Dars-e-Nizami and Takhassus fil Fiqh, Mufti Tariq Masood is located at Jamia Masjid-o-Madras Alfalahiya, Sector#10, North Karachi, Karachi – Pakistan. His Bayans are telecast online on Friday and then a Darse Quran on Sunday. His whatsapp and mobile number is +92 321 2235590. You can easily contact him or his associates all the time. His availability is quite hard these days due to demand.
So what Mufti Tariq Masood said in that video clip? He started well and urged and encouraged men to marry the widows and divorced women, three of them and then he took the responsibility of marrying them with a virgin for the fourth slot. Remember that four marriages are allowed in Islam for men at the same time. But then he got side-tracked and said that he would arrange for even the younger ones. I cannot even share that here, so I would ask you to listen to that clip above.
The disturbing part was where people laughed and just took it as fun thing in stride. It was no funny by any means of stretch. It wasn’t a joke and it wasn’t in a good taste. May be the Mufti got carried away in the heat of moment and was just basking among his fan following. But then he is a religious leader who should always be in his senses as this is a serious and very important position to be in. If he cannot control what he says then probably he shouldn’t be sitting on that high chair which is very sacred.
I hope that the top religious scholars of the country would take notice of this and do something about it.
