Social media has been abuzz after it was revealed that Justin Bieber will be visiting our country for his “Justice World Tour” concert this coming October. The news was met with massive reactions from Beliebers. Understandably, many have been longing to attend their first ever physical live show in more than two years.
However, this news has apparently rubbed several people the wrong way. Among those who have openly expressed their objection against the upcoming concert include Ustazah Asma’ Harun. The Muslim preacher took to her Facebook to share her concern towards the Bieber Fever phenomenon among young Muslims in the country.
Ustazah Asma’ wrote on her Facebook, “When our country was struck with the pandemic, all social related activities were not allowed by the government. Just when I thought that all these immoral omens have died down, it was announced that Justin Bieber will be having his concert on 22nd October at Bukit Jalil (National) Stadium. The news was met with huge reactions from youngsters.”
“Tickets are sold from RM288 to RM2088, and they are willing to empty their savings. Not only that, there are those who are willing to do part-time jobs to buy the tix. I also came across a viral video showing a teenager asking for money from her mom so that she can attend the concert. Indeed, this phenomenon is worrying,” she added in her post.
In regard to this, Asma’ is urging parents to not allow their child to attend the concert. According to her, “Use the power and ability that are bestowed upon you (as parents) to save your family members from getting engaged in activities that are filled with vices. Else, you will be questioned by God during the hereafter for allowing your kids to get involved in immoral activities. Be stern with them when it’s necessary.”
Does she know that Justin Bieber’s concert tickets here have already been sold out?
