Re: Religious and incessant other noise....

Wa'alaikum Salaam!

Yes, I've noticed about the continuous weddings at the MWA Hall, but, mercifully as I write this, there's nothing of the sort going on there. But, then, we have a whole weekend, yet, and one never knows what will be happening the next two nights....!

These people are some of the most selfish lot imaginable, I agree. Being Muslims, don't they know that weddings are first and foremost not supposed to be such lavish and showy affairs and dancing and music is also not allowed....., even if there are just women there.

As I mentioned before, we Muslims have become some of the most despicable creatures on earth! They have the least regard for others and then they say that they are the followers of the Holy Prophet (pbuh). What irony! I wonder if they know much about their religion and what it stands for. They are an insult to our beloved Prophet (pbuh)!!!!

I sent the letter below to the person in charge of the neighbourhood mosque, this morning before I left for Friday prayers, but, it seems to have had no effect on the Imam, there. I wonder if the guy has a brain with which he thinks and which he is required to do according to his faith?! These people have scant regard for anybody but themselves, unfortunately.

And the authorities behave that they can't touch anybody who is making religious noises (despite there being laws to the contrary), as they are to do with worshiping. Another irony!

Salamz now its April and wedding season - woe to anyone - who lives near a social hall like AgaKhan Sports, Womens', Muslim Womens', Kokni etc. . . . And woe to anyone who dares to object and because something is very odd, nothing happens if you complain, why? Don't people have a right to peace, calm and tranquility. Or just because someone's having a good day, everyone must join in whether they want to or not!  MM

Assalamu alaikum!  Mosques or rather the Imams in them, everywhere in this country, seem to be hell-bent on competing with their Christian counterparts, in making as much noise as possible....., all in the name of worshiping our Creator!  First, the Muslims - We are not supposed to disturb others. This was the practice of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and so says the Holy Qur'an, too, which Muslims claim to follow. Other than giving the call to prayer, nothing else is supposed to be heard outside the mosque. Yet, these misguided Imams, lead prayers inside the mosque at such ear-splitting volumes that one would get the impression that he was leading the whole neighbourhood and further afield in prayers. This is NOT VALID, as during prayers, one is not even supposed to say them so loud that the person next to one can hear what one is reciting. Therefore, why should these Imams make pests of themselves and be so impervious to the disturbance they are causing to others who might be praying at home?  Second, the Christians - I was under the impression that they have only one day of official prayer in a week for them. While nobody is disputing their doing this more times, it's highly irritating and disturbing when they, like their Muslim counterparts, perform their services at ear-splitting volumes and that too with complete disregard to residential areas and hospitals in their neighbourhoods.  Third, lorries, tractors, etc - These are not supposed to be parked, revved and fixed within residential areas as it's against Municipal by-laws. Yet they do.  Promotional loud music - Our mobile telephony providers and others like minded sales people think nothing of adding to all the din around them by so-called promoting their products loudly to the public.  All this noise, is not supposed to be allowed, yet, it exists in our midst with the various authorities doing absolutely NOTHING about making our existence quieter and more bearable. Why?
