Turn on the TV and flick through the channels during Ramzan and you’ll find Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain, Maya Khan, Sahir Lodhi, Junaid Jamshed, Ali Haider and all others conducting elaborate Ramzan transmissions. While wearing expensive clothes and standing on exquisitely designed sets, these individuals “utilize” the air time by helping the poor, giving free gifts and charity, cooking, making others recite Naats or simply by sitting and talking about how this holy month should be observed with simplicity and piety etc.
This whole concept disturbs me . now i’m not judging their imaans and i’m not saying that they’re doing something wrong by being religious but according to my limited knowledge of Islam, i do think that Islam doesn’t appreciate “glamourising” of good deeds and Pomp and show in the matter of religion is something not appreciated by Allah.
I leave it upto the audience to decide whether these shows actually help them to benefit from the holy month or not.
