Unveiling the Real Mr Variawa who Plays Mufti on Radio Al-Ansaar

Question:

Assalamualaikum

I heard Mr Muhammed Variawa on Radio Al- Ansaar issuing clear cut verdicts on aspects of Islam. I would like to know the status of this man and how does he have the audacity to issue verdicts on any aspect of Islam? The man happily got his celebrity daughter married to an alleged non muslim. The wedding took place in Dubai, the first day, they called it Nikah and the next day all the non Muslim rituals took place.

Here is the hard evidence:

Pictures have been covered as requested but all this is easily accessible from the links on youtube. The daughter is a SABC celeb so the wedding was viewed by thousands.

Variawa held the hand of his “son in law” to be, dressed in Arab code, Variawa certainly handed his daughter with all happiness to Andrew Marty in what is supposed to be a Nikah?

Please advise because the next day they celebrated Andrew and his family’s rituals.

All the evidence is here, infact, in the audio below, there is a commentator speaking during this so called Nikah saying, “as outlined in the Holy Quraan the marriage contract is concluded between the guardian of the bride and the groom.”

This audio was extracted from their link:

Muhammed Variawa then pronounces, “religiously Zahirah and Andrew are now married”. Listen:

Muhammed Variawa’s daughter Zahirah then mentions, “tomorrow is where all the dress up and second part of the fun starts“.

THE CHRISTIAN RITUALS IS THE “SECOND PART OF THE FUN
“WITH THE HANDS ON APPROACH ZAHIRAH FEELS COMFORTABLE WHEN SHE IS CHECKLISTING EVERY DETAIL”
BIG DADDY MR VARIAWA, WALKING HIS DAUGHTER DOWN THE ISLE FOR THE CHRISTIAN RITUAL
FATHER VARIAWA WHO SERVED AS A WITNESS AT YESTERDAY’S SO CALLED NIKAH NOW SERVES AS A WITNESS TO THE NEXT DAYS “EXHANGE OF VOWS”
AFTER RINGS ARE PLACED ON EACH OTHERS HANDS, THE MARRIAGE OFFICER SAYS, “I AM VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE YOU HUSBAND AND WIFE”
VARIAWA SAYS AFTER THE CHRISTIAN RITUALS:

Can a man like this issue fataawa on so called Islamic Radio Stations?

Answer:

From the onset, we have to put things into perspective:

  1. It is Haraam for a Interfaith Nikaah to take place in the first place. There is no question about the above.

Allah Ta’ala talking about the Muhaajiraat (women from Makkah who have accepted and migrated to Madinah) states:

:فَلَا تَرْجِعُوهُنَّ إِلَى الْكُفَّارِ لَا هُنَّ حِلٌّ لَهُمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحِلُّونَ لَهُنَّ

(60:10)

“Do not return them to the disbelievers; they are not lawful [wives] forthem, nor are they lawful [husbands] for them.”

The prohibition; in this verse; of returning Muslim women to their former husbands is general, whether the husbands are from the Ahlul Kitab (people of the Book) or polytheists. Simply put, a Muslim woman cannot be with a non-Muslim husband.There has been consensus on this issue and this is the unanimous view of the scholars from the golden era of the Sahabah Radhi Allahu anhum. Imam Bukhari Rahmatullahi has dedicated a whole chapter to this situation in his compilation of Ahadith; Sahih al Bukhari.

2. If this prohibition is the case of a Muslim female who hypothetically stuck to her Islam and went to marry a non Muslim male, what can be said about the one who claims to be Muslim then goes on the next day to embrace fully, the customs and traditions of the kuffaar.

Allah Ta’ala says,

يٰۤـاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الۡيَهُوۡدَ وَالنَّصٰرٰۤى اَوۡلِيَآءَ ‌ؔۘ بَعۡضُهُمۡ اَوۡلِيَآءُ بَعۡضٍ‌ؕ وَمَنۡ يَّتَوَلَّهُمۡ مِّنۡكُمۡ فَاِنَّهٗ مِنۡهُمۡ‌ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يَهۡدِى الۡقَوۡمَ الظّٰلِمِيۡنَ

Surah al- Maaidah Verse 51)

Translation:

O those who believe, do not take the Jews and Christians for intimate friends. They are friends to each other. And whoever takes intimate friends from them, he is one of them. Surely, Allah does not take the unjust people to the right path.

Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‏ ‏ مَنْ تَشَبَّهَ بِقَوْمٍ فَهُوَ مِنْهُم

“He who imitates a nation is from them

Abu Dawood

As for Mr Variawa who issues fatawaa on Radio Al-Ansaar, it is clear, he is a zindeeq as he is recorded saying with regards to females entering the Masaajid and reading at the back that he feels “we are not ready for that now”.

Firstly the man has no qualifications, secondly he has announced this kufr marriage of his daughters to the level of being “religiously married”. Thus it is total absurdity to regard the man’s so called “verdicts” as actual verdicts.

He and all those involved in the kufr event mentioned above needs to renew their Emaan and a public tawbah is of the essence. Many were not Muslim in the first place. He has no right to issue any verdicts on Islamic matter. He has made a mess of his daughters Emaan by allowing her to act on SABC and the rest of the programs and then the Champagne style kufr wedding, to nail the coffin, to term them as “religiously” married. Again, he left out the consultation of true Ulamaa.

Look at what constitutes a Christian wedding and then juxtapose:

Quran – Surah No. 5 المائدة

Ayah No. 44:

Translation:

And whoever does not judge by what Allah has sent down, then, they are the disbelievers.

Ayah No. 45:

And whoever does not judge by what Allah has sent down, then, they are the unjust.

Ayah 47:

And whoever does not judge by what Allah has sent down, then, they are the sinners.
