Wishing "Happy Chinese New Year" is Now Haram?
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
It has to be asked, what good is MUIS’ Asatidzah Recognition Scheme, when instead of helping the Muslims by accrediting scholars, it is used as a means to normalise extreme ideas by giving Wahhabis legitimacy? According to this group, which lists MUIS accredited scholars, even wishing the Chinese, “Happy Lunar New Year” is kufr. This is from their web site’s metadata, and is shared around by the usual suspects.
What will MUIS do about this? Absolutely nothing. Just like they did nothing about Murad Said saying celebrating National Day is haram, and how we should kill apostates. He is still on the ARS, and still teaching at various mosques. Just like they did nothing about Rasul Dahri all these years, despite the fact he radicalised Mas Selamat and taught the same things all these years. People, including myself, have written in and called in, and they either claimed they cannot do anything, or they do not know.
