Mufti Menk calls for balance between world and religion in response to vitriol

A few weeks ago, Mufti Menk visited flood-affected areas in Pakistan. A video of him visiting the flood-affected areas has been doing rounds on social media.

Mufti Menk preaches a striking balance between worldly life and religion after a social media user called him out for enjoying himself with family in London.

Mufti Menk had posted his picture of enjoying water sports in London. Some of his followers commented and criticized him for ‘wasting time. They advised him to spend this time for the betterment of the Muslim community.

Menk responded humbly to the criticism coming in from some of his followers. “Real sheiks wouldn’t ever see your comment on social media either and take the time to reply. A few minutes spent every year doesn’t determine the genuineness or not of a person,” he wrote. “Rasulallah (Prophet Muhammad) also engaged in many recreative activities with his family. We must be balanced. Our children and family members have a right over us. Concern for the Ummah is only possible if you have concern for your own family first.”

Netizens praised Mufti Menk for preaching moderation in life rather than taking a hard approach. Another user commenting on the sour comment posted by a user said, “I wish she herself would have gained some knowledge before spitting her words. Taking part in activities, showing love to your wife, traveling with your family, and smiling, all these are Sunnah.”
