“We let Hindu girls tie Rakhi on our wrist for better sale” listen to this Maulana

All religions have come with many traditions, festivals, and rituals since ancient times, which reveal their uniqueness. Every religion has its own important festivals and can help in the spiritual development of a person. But it is not necessary that the festival will be celebrated only by the religion to which it belongs, the festival is not for people of any one religion but for all human beings. A video is going viral on social media in which a Hindu girl is tying Rakhi on the wrist of a Muslim youth. But at the end of the video, Maulana tells some facts about the festival for Muslim youth and about his Muslim religion.

Raksha Bandhan is a major Hindu festival in which a sister ties her brother’s armor (Raksha) to her brother and the brother always keeps it safe. It is a traditional festival and is recognized among women in India. Something similar is seen in the viral video where a Hindu girl ties Rakhi on the wrist of a Muslim youth. This happens not only in videos but also in reality when people of the Muslim community celebrate Hindu festivals. But it is very important to know the facts behind this which Maulana has told in the video.

Maulana says in the video, that whatever Muslim brothers have posted the status of Rakshabandhan festival or whoever has wished, he has this to say, “They have not posted this status from the heart, they have posted it only superficially. Therefore, because we are customers, They are non-Muslims and our shop is also in a non-Muslim area and we have little contact with them, so we have imposed this status to keep their hearts.

Maulana further says, “When Hazrat Sumaiya Begum couldn’t hold her mind on Allah for just one minute, but you all hold your hearts for few shops, for few customers, and for a few worldly things this is wrong. Allah has given you only one heart; now, either give it to Allah or to this world. But celebrating the festivals of non-Muslims and participating in them is illegal for Muslims.” The Prophet said, “Whoever celebrates and participates in the festivals of another religion is one of them, not one of the Muslims.”
