Q. Your criticism of the Islamic radio stations is too harsh. There is much good in these media. Deeni talks, Qira’t, etc. are important features of these radios. Should these benefits not be taken into consideration?
A. Even if we have to assume for a moment that there are benefits in these radio stations, you will have to concede that there are benefits in pork liquor and gambling as well. But such benefits do not make evil and filth halaal, Similarly, the smattering of benefit which you have discerned in these nafsaani media does not make the shaitaani stations and channels halaal. Their evil by far outweigh whatever little goodness has been imagined.
