    In my city alone there are around 5 people (that I have heard of) who have the muye mubarak.

    Has it ever crossed anyone’s mind how so many people have them in their possession? That too, from the Pakistani/Indian community, furthermore at the homes of the least likely of people you would expect to have them in their possession.

    The number of times the muye mubarak is being shown at gatherings is increasing, but the adab shown is decreasing.

    It's rabi' and I'm sure the muye Mubarak will be shown at many gatherings.

    I'm obviously not against tabarrukat but I certainly feel the muye Mubarak should not be shown at too many gatherings in the same city. Otherwise, there's a danger people will not give the blessed hair the respect they are due. When something becomes common, it's value tends to drop.

    Of course the worth of the muye Mubarak can't fall but maybe Muslims will not respect it as much as they would've if it was a rarity.
