Shaykh Abu Abdir Rahmaan Yahyaa Bin Alee Al-Hajooree was asked:


I broke my fast one time in a masjid from the masjids of the charity organizations when a cameraman took my picture from front and behind. So I said to myself, “All of this for the love of Sambosa. As if there were security guards at my hands!”


“Actually, the price of Sambosa has become at the price of a cow or more. They give iftar to the people for the worldly life, by Allah. It disgraces and distracts its companions when they go for Umrah and gather an amount of money from here and an amount of money from there. He acquires the worldly life. You do not see except he is distracted from knowledge, from the Sunnah, from good and is busied with that disobedience”. End translation. [Reference]
