The Fourth Resolution on Research Paper Entitled:
‘Spread of Ommul Khabaeth: Malady and Remedy’ Presented by Mahmood Sheith Khattab
All Praise be to Almighty Allah.
Blessing and peace be on His Prophet Muhammad
after whom there is no prophet, and on all those
who followed his way of guidance.
The Islamic Fiqh Council during its 4th session held at the general secretariat of the Muslim World League in Makkah Mukarramah between 7-17 Rabi Al-Aakhir 1401H examined the research paper ‘Spread of Ommul Khabaeth in Arab Countries: Malady and Remedy’ presented to it by the Council member, Mahmood Sheith Khattab. The Council found it a comprehensive research paper which covered the main three evils: Alcoholic drinks, drugs and Tobacco.
The frightening picture presented by this valued research work which contains the important documented information and various hygienic, social and economic statistics, cautioning about the worst scenario of the future youth generation, is in fact, a picture that is sufficient to warn the leaders of the Muslim Ummah at the various levels to shoulder their responsibilities in this regard in order to ward off the worst fate that awaits the future generation due to spread of these three evils, which the author of the research paper has called ‘Mother of Evils’ in the circles of the Muslim boys and girls.
Author of the research paper has found that the ways and means of these evils’ spread are three as the following: i) the homes where some of these boys and girls see parents and guardians to be addicted to such evils, ii) the educational institutions where students and undergraduates influence their classmates and attract them to such evils, iii) the electronic and print media, which spread these poisons through attractive images, advertisements, films and the like.
After explaining the ways and means of these evils, the author of this research paper has made it clear that the only treatment that can eliminate these evils and safeguard the Muslim Ummah and its youth from them as much as possible, is the real Islamic upbringing that is partaken sincerely and carefully so as to positively influence the Muslim youth and guide their thinking and behaviour.
The researcher has explained and proved that all the various means adopted by the Western specialists to deal with such evils under the materialistic way of life in the West and followed by West-oriented leadership in the Muslim countries have failed and led to the adverse results causing more spread of such evils, and the real treatment of such evils cannot be found except through a real Islamic upbringing.
He has cautioned against the serious dangers of smoking besides the alcoholic drinks and drugs, which make obligatory for those who are responsible for homes, educational institutions and media as well as government authorities to think seriously and shoulder their responsibilities in this regard.
The Islamic Fiqh Council thanks the researcher for this valuable research paper, which contains important information and several opinions. It also decides to print this research paper for publication and get it translated and distributed on a large scale. It also calls the attention of parents, teachers, media persons and government officials to it, appealing to them to fear Almighty Allah with respect to the generations of this Ummah and work hard to safeguard them from these evils through the real Islamic upbringing and awareness,
