“Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.” — Ayatollah Khomeini

“Kerala: Islamic scholar says shopping malls are haram because women might visit beauty parlours and look at other men,” OpIndia, November 25, 2021 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Hussain Salafi, an Islamic scholar from Kerala has stated that Muslims should stay away from malls because Allah does not like malls. As per a report by Janam TV, Hussain Salafi said that men and women roam together in malls and Allah dislikes malls.

The Islamic scholar added that Muslims should boycott malls. He asserted that Allah’s favourite places are mosques.

Salafi further added that women who visit malls also visit beauty parlours. Malls see visitors and shoppers from different cultures who wear all different kinds of dresses. “These are the children of devil”, Salafi added, Muslims who visit malls are tarnishing the image of the whole community.

Explaining all the ‘evil effects’ of a mall, Salafi further added that in malls, men and women roam together. The gaze of women falls on other men inside malls. Women looking at men brings disrepute to the Muslim community, he added, saying that Muslims should stay away from malls.
