Commercialisation of Islam

Something is causing confusion within the ummah at the moment, and we can summarize it as the commercialisation of Islam. It happens on different levels, and while people can complain that this is not adherent to Islam, the truth is that this ship has sailed a long time ago. 


I met a wonderful brother who is a volunteer at one of our local masjid. We heard one day that his wife passed away, but he was back at the masjid a couple of days after her demise, performing his routine volunteer duties as usual such that one would not realise that her death affected him unless one looked for the subtle changes in his normal demeanour.
