What Worldly Item Do You Think Destroys Your Relationship With Allâh?

I am a subscriber to a number of Muslim mailing lists and regularly get numerous beneficial emails arrive in my inbox, the latest of which is courtesy of the Muslim Saturday Club – Here are a few extracts from the email [click the “more” link below to read the article in full]:

“The MSC issued a comprehensive questionnaire to almost 50 growing Muslimahs aged 11+. The very last question put to them read: ‘What worldly item do you think destroys your relationship with Allâh?’ 48 girls answered: ‘TV’

“…stats show that the average person watches more than 4 hours of TV each day (or 28 hours/week, or 2 months of non-stop TV-watching per year). In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years of their life glued to the box.”

And:

“As a responsible adult would you allow a child in your care to view, be subjected to or be part of any of the following:

– Would you allow your child to attend a live music concert lasting a number of hours, featuring loud blaring music (along with inappropriate lyrics), scantly dressed musicians and screaming fans?
– Would you allow your child to witness a crime, rape, robbery, shooting, murder etc?
– Would you allow your child to be in the company of those with little shame and immorality, e.g. would you allow them to free mix, witness first hand the ‘enchanting’ atmosphere in a pub, upcoming bar, night club, holiday resort etc?
– Would you allow your child to experiment with drugs, handle a gun, befriend and learn from a gangster?”
