Pseudo-Sheikhs and the Peril of Professionalizing Islam [Quote – 351]

“Among the most serious challenges facing Islam and Muslims today is the professionalization of Islam and Muslims by career seekers who use Allah’s Deen and its followers to make a buck.

Instead of going out and getting an education and a degree; finding a job; setting up an honest business; and making a living that way, some of these folks find it easier and more profitable to turn Islam and Muslims into a career path for themselves.

Many of them, many new converts to Islam among them, thus become preachers and teachers of Islam: to Muslims, mind you, not to Non-Muslims.

The result often is a disaster for Islam, Muslims and the world.

May Allah save his world from these pseudo sheikhs and traders in Islam and Muslims!” (Dr. Pasha)
