PRESS NOTE OF MARKAZ NIZAMUDDIN

PRESS NOTE ISSUED BY MARKAZ NIZAMUDDIN DATED 31.03.2020

Markaz Nizamuddin is the international headquarters of Tabilghi Jamaat for close to 100 years.

Visitors/guests/devotees/worshippers from across the globe throng the place for pre-scheduled programs lasting for no more than 3-5 days. All the programs are decided a year in advance in order to facilitate visitors from far-off places to plan their participation.

When Hon’ble Prime Minister announced the “Janta Curfew”, for 22nd March 2020, the ongoing program in Markaz Nizamuddin was discontinued immediately, however due to sudden cancelation of rail services across the country on 21st March 2020, a large group of visitors who had to depart by way of railways got stuck in the Markaz premises.

On 22nd March 2020, “Janta Curfew” was observed and accordingly visitors were advised not to venture out until 9 PM as desired by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, therefore the plans to move back to their native places by way of means other than railways also did not materialize. Before the Janta Curfew could be lifted at 9PM, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Delhi announced lockdown of Delhi beginning at 6AM on 23rd March 2020 till 31st March 2020, thereby further diminishing any chances of these visitors availing road transport for their journey back home. Despite this challenging situation, with the help of Markaz administration, around fifteen hundred visitors left Markaz Nizamuddin by availing whatever meager transport was available.

Suddenly on the evening of 23rd March, a further nationwide lockdown was announced by the Hon’ble Prime Minister with clear message for people to stay-put wherever they are. Under such compelling circumstances there was no option for Markaz Nizamuddin but to accommodate the stranded visitors with prescribed medical precautions till such time that situation becomes conducive for their movement or arrangements are made by the authorities.

On 24th March 2020, suddenly a notice was issued by SHO, P.S. Hazrat Nizamuddin, seeking closure of Markaz premises. The same was responded on 24th March 2020, stating that the compliance of the directions regarding closure of Markaz is already underway and around 1500 people had departed the previous day, thus leaving around 1000 visitors belonging to different states and nationalities in Markaz. It was also informed that the Ld. SDM concerned had been requested to issue vehicle passes so that the remaining people could be sent back to their native places outside of Delhi. It is relevant to indicate here that lists of 17 vehicles with registration numbers along with the names of the drivers plus their license details were submitted to the Ld. SDM so that the stranded visitors/guests could be ferried towards their destination. The requisite permission is still awaited.

On 25th March 2020, the Tehsildaar along with medical team visited the Markaz, full cooperation was provided for their inspection as well as in preparation of list of visitors, many of whom were examined by them.
On 26th March 2020, the Ld. SDM visited Markaz Nizamuddin and called us for a further meeting with the Ld. DM. We met the Ld. DM, apprised him of the stranded visitors and once again sought permission for the vehicles arranged by us.

The next day, i.e. 27th March 2020, six persons were taken for medical check-up.

On 28th March 2020, the Ld. SDM and WHO team visited the Markaz and 33 persons were taken for medical checkup to Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Hospital. Surprisingly on the same day another notice was issued, this time by the Office of ACP, Lajpat Nagar, reiterating the prohibitory orders and warning of legal action, this being totally oblivious of the above deliberations and steps that had already been taken by Markaz Nizamuddin in consultation with the authorities. However, the same was replied in detail vide letter dated 29th March 2020.

Yesterday, 30th March 2020, a rumour started gaining ground across social media that allegedly people affected with COVID-19 are present in Markaz. It is also being circulated that certain deaths have occurred due to the same.

Unexpectedly, as reported by ANI, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Delhi went on to say that he has directed authorities to take legal action against the administration of Markaz. It is humbly stated that if the above fact-check could have been done by the Office of Hon’ble Chief Minister, the authorities would have apprised him about their visits, deliberations and cooperation extended by the Markaz in order to disperse the remaining visitors. During this entire episode, Markaz Nizamuddin never violated any provision of law, and always tried to act with compassion and reason towards the visitors who came to Delhi from different states. It did not let them violate the medical guidelines by thronging ISBTs or roaming on streets.

Markaz Nizamuddin would like to humbly offer the entire premises as a quarantine facility to help the authorities tide-over the challenge of current pandemic. Throughout its 100-year existence, Markaz Nizamuddin has an unblemished history of cooperating with administration/ authorities and always upholding the rule of law in letter and spirit. In the present challenge of COVID-19, Markaz stands with the law enforcement authorities and shall remain forthcoming in complying with all the guidelines issued by them.

A BUNKUM HARAAM ‘FATWA’ OF MR. TAQI USMANI

Question:

Is the following view of Mufti Taqi correct:

According to him if the Muslim ruler in a Muslim country suspends Jumuah prayers because of some strong reason such as a medical reason or something like it, then the ruling of the Sultan applies. He says that it is written in Fataawa books such as Alamghiri that if the Muslim ruler suspends Jumuah prayer, then you have to pray Zuhr at home. Only those people are allowed to pray Jumuah at home who are living in non-Muslim countries where Jumuah is suspended at Masjids.” Is this view correct?

ANSWER (By Mujlisul Ulama):

Mufti Taqi has taken up residence in the domain of dhalaal (deviation) hence he has become adept in issuing one cent bunkum fatwas which he substantiates with Fiqhi and Hadith texts by misinterpretation to suit the whims of kuffaar rulers with whom he associates and whom he bootlicks.

The texts in Alamghiri and other Kutub are not applicable to the kufr scenarios prevailing today in the context of the virus plot of the kuffaar.

Pakistan has a decidedly kuffaar government. This kaafir government is not like a Sultan who governs by the Shariah. Furthermore, never in Islam’s history has any Sultan abolished Jumuah Salaat. No Sultan has suspended Jumuah as Mr.Taqi seeks to convey by deception to the ignorant masses.

Mr.Taqi is satanically mis-applying the text of Alamghiri to provide kufr cover for the kufr shenanigans of the Pakistan government regarding the current virus panic. While according to the Shariah the kufr decree of the government has no validity, people will automatically abstain from Jumuah, not because of obedience to the kuffaar government, but on account of fear for the brutal persecution and oppression which will follow in the wake of defying the evil rulers whom Mr.Taqi is supporting at the cost of ruining his Imaan.

There is no need for a fatwa to convince people to abstain from Jumuah in Napakistan or in any other country where Jumua has been banned, Fardh Salaat has been banned and the Musaajid closed down. A fatwa to abstain from Jumuah is superfluous and stupid. People of their own accord will not go to the Musaajid for fear of the brutality of the oppressive rulers and tyrants.

The motive of these munaafiq molvis and stupid  once cent ‘muftis’ for issuing fatwas to justify abstention from Jumuah and Fardh Salaat in the Musjid is only to curry favour with rulers and governments. They most disgracefully lick the boots of the kuffaar for the attainment of despicable nafsaani objectives.

The ‘medical’ reason posited by Mr.Taqi is satanically spurious. There is absolutely no Shar’i validity for this bunkum reason urinated into the brains by the devil.

The suggestion to perform Zuhr is another stupidity. Every Muslim, even the fussaaq and fujjaar, with the exclusion of the zindeeqs and munaafiqeen, is aware that when he is compelled by governmental oppression to forego Jumuah, he has to perform Zuhr since there is no other alternative.

The stupid, kufr averment that “only those people are allowed to pray jumuah at home who are living in non-Muslim countries where jumuah is suspended at Masjids” clearly displays the malfunctioning of Mr.Taqi’s brains.

In Pakistan/Napakistan where Jumuah has been banned by the kuffaar government on account of the virus bogey, the kuffaar rulers have done so in submission to their kuffaar, conspiratorial masters. So far, the haraam kufr order is the closure of the Musjids. The law has not banned performance of Salaat – any Salaat – at home.  It is therefore satanically stupid for Mr.Taqi to claim that Jumuah Salaat while valid in homes in non-Muslim countries will not be valid in Pakistan. He displays egregious stupidity in this satanic ‘fatwa’.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Verily, I fear for my Ummah, the aimmah mudhilleen.”

In another narration, our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) expressed greater fear for these deviate muftis and molvis – greater than fear for even Dajjaal.

The Cancellation of Salaah and the Baseless Excuse of a Munaafiq

Whenever Allaah Ta`aalaa sends down any test upon the Muslims, there are those who pass this test with flying colours and there are those who fail this test miserably, being flung on account of it into the pit of Jahannam. Throughout the history of Islaam and right until the time when Allaah Ta`aalaa takes the very last Muslim away from this Dunyaa, there will be tests. These Tests separate the wheat from the chaff; they separate the sincere Muslims (`Ibaadallaahil Mukhlaseen) from the munaafiqeen; they separate those who truly believe in Allaah Ta`aalaa from those who are only “Muslim” in name.

One of the most recent tests is that of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and this test from Allaah Ta`aalaa has truly exposed the munaafiqeen most thoroughly. It has exposed the fact that most of the so-called “Ulama” do not – and have never – truly believed in Allaah Ta`aalaa. Their Imaan is as flimsy as a cobweb. Their tawakkul is in America.

They may outwardly deny this, but in reality, in the back of their minds they know this to be true: they laugh at the belief that it is Allaah Ta`aalaa Who controls both sickness and cure. They hypocritically claim to believe this, but they know as well as we do that they do not truly believe that. They consider this belief to be stupid, backwards, regressive, old-fashioned, dangerous and something which “puts Muslims in a bad light in the eyes of the non-Muslims”.

That is a major disease in the hearts of these “Mozlems”: they are forever worried about “what the non-Muslims will think about us”. They care more about the “judgement” of the so-called “non-Muslims” than the Judgement of Allaah Ta`aalaa. They are always “apologising” to the so-called “non-Muslims” on behalf of Allaah Ta`aalaa, wal-`Iyaadhu Billaah. They feel that they need to apologise to the “non-Muslims” for Allaah Ta`aalaa having revealed this “oppressive, fundamentalist, backward, old-fashioned, terrorist religion” known as Islaam.

This “coronavirus (COVID-19)” has brought every last munaafiq “scholar” in the world out of the woodwork, and Shaytaan would be proud of them. The Arab Kaafir regimes were in the forefront to close down the Masaajid and ban the Salaah, and their grovelling, bootlicking munaafiq “scholars” were quick to defend it.

Never in the past has Iblees had it as easy as he has it today. He can comfortably retire. The Ulamaa-e-Soo are striving to outdo both him and Dajjaal in spreading kufr and munkar throughout the world. With one “coronavirus”, they have gotten rid of Islaam in entirety. Long ago already the munaafiqeen had “interpreted” away Jihaad as either: a) being some “ancient” part of Islaam that was abrogated centuries ago and which must be apologised for, or b) that Jihaad actually means “to strive hard in politics, to have a democratically elected president,” or “to strive hard in advocating human rights”, which to them refers to feminism and gay rights, thus in their minds a “mujaahid” is someone who joins the “gay pride” marches, protesting and “striving hard in advocating LGBTQ+ values and freedom of expression”.

Munaafiq Menk would happily be at the forefront, raising high the “gay pride” flag and marching. These Munaafiq “scholars” will soon march with the cross as well.

صورته اليوم هو في أول الطابور, يحمل الصليب الضخم الكبير ويسير…

Thus, long ago already had they done away with Jihaad, and now with the coronavirus they have done away with Salaah, Hajj, `Umrah and the Sunnah in one go. Already they are having discussions about cancelling Sawm (fasting) as well, because they believe that it will lower the person’s immune system and put them at greater risk of “contracting the coronavirus and dying”, thus, according to their fabricated principles, “it is your duty to not fast”. They have never been giving Zakaat so that does not even factor, thus in one go there is no longer Salaah, Zakaah, Sawm (fasting), Hajj, `Umrah, Jihaad or the Sunnah, because acting on the Sunnah results in people contracting and spreading the coronavirus, according to them.

All of the munaafiqeen organisations have thus come out to cancel Islaam: the “Jamiats”, the MJC (Murtadd Juhalaa Council), etc., as well as the Munaafiqeen-In-Chief like Munaafiq Menk, Taha Karaan, Yasir (Yes-Sir) Qadhi, etc. The kuffaar governments had not even brought in any laws yet when the munaafiqeen rats, the “Tujjaar-ud-Deen”, the “Dajjaalian Scholars” had begun squawking like parrots in the trees, ever eager to please their masters (America and its allies), ever eager to grovel, ever eager to bootlick, to kowtow, to snivel, ever yearning for “acceptance” from the kuffaar.

None of the munaafiqeen have presented any scrap of true daleel to justify the widespread shutting down of the Masaajid, the cancellation of Jumu`ah, Jamaa`ah, Taraaweeh and possibly Eid as well if their masters have not yet given them the “green light” to go ahead with it by that time.

Recently, “Yes-Sir” Qadhi (groveler-in-chief) presented a so-called “daleel” for closing down the Masaajid. Now, Yes-Sir Qadhi is not someone whose words hold any weight for true Muslims. His words are only meant to be printed on toilet roll and used by someone who has had a bad case of diarrhoea. Nevertheless, because some Muslims asked us about this so-called “daleel” of his, we shall briefly respond to it, إن شاء الله.

Yes-Sir Qadhi quotes the following passage from al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah of Imaam ibn Katheer رحمة الله عليه:

فلمّا مات استخلف على الناس عمرو بن العاص فقام فيهم خطيباً فقال:

أيّها الناس، إنّ هذا الوجع إذا وقع فإنّما يشتعل اشتعال النار، فتحصّنوا منه في الجبال. فقال أبو وائل الهذلي: كذبت والله لقد صحبت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وأنت شرّ من حماري هذا. فقال: والله ما أردّ عليكم ما تقول، وايم الله لا نقيم عليه. قال: ثم خرج وخرج الناس فتفرّقوا ودفعه الله عنهم.

قال: فبلغ ذلك عمر بن الخطاب من رأى عمرو بن العاص فوالله ما كرهه

This passage is on the chapter of the Plague of `Amwaas wherein 25,000 people died, according to Imaam al-Waaqidi رحمة الله عليه, or 30,000 people according to others. Many great Sahaabah died in this plague, including:

  1. Hadhrat Abu `Ubaydah ibn al-Jarraah رضي الله عنه
  2. Hadhrat Abu Maalik al-Ash`ari رضي الله عنه
  3. Hadhrat Mu`aadh ibn Jabal رضي الله عنه
  4. Hadhrat Yazeed ibn Abi Sufyaan رضي الله عنه
  5. 5. Hadhrat Haarith ibn Hishaam رضي الله عنه

In fact, both Hadhrat Abu `Ubaydah رضي الله عنه and Hadhrat Mu`aadh ibn Jabal رضي الله عنه died from the plague after asking Allaah Ta`aalaa to give them that sickness so that they would die from it.

Nevertheless, the above passage from al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah states that after Hadhrat Mu`aadh ibn Jabal رضي الله عنه passed away and Hadhrat `Amr ibn al-`Aas رضي الله عنه was placed in charge, he told them that this plague spreads like fire, thus they must “seek shelter” in the mountains, and the narration then states that they تفرّقوا (dispersed) and Allaah Ta`aalaa removed the plague. When the news of this was taken to Hadhrat `Umar رضي الله عنه, he did not dislike it.

“Yes-Sir” Qadhi then makes the following baseless statement:

“It is reasonable to assume that the prayers were suspended.”

This is the apex of his “daleel”: “it is reasonable to assume.”

“To assume.”

Since when has there been an addition to Usool-ul-Fiqh? Has anyone heard about this? We certainly have not. We know that the Ahkaam of Sharee`ah are derived from four sources: two of them being primary and two being non-primary. The two Primary Sources are Qur’aan and Sunnah. The two non-primary sources are ijmaa` and qiyaas, that being qiyaas done by a Faqeeh, and there are no Fuqahaa today.

Where do “assumptions” fit in?

Perhaps we need to rewrite the Kutub of Usool-ul-Fiqh to make this very important change: Qur’aan, Sunnah, Ijmaa`, Qiyaas and the Assumptions of Yasir Qadhi. There are now five sources of istidlaal.

فإلى الله المشتكى وهو المستعان…

A few points to briefly debunk his ridiculous “assumption”:

1) As stated above, we have established sources of istidlaal. History books are not one of those sources. Daleel is Qur’aan and Sunnah, and for those who are not Mujtahideen, they refer to the Kutub of Fiqh. The Kutub of taareekh as not used for daleel for a very simple reason: tahqeeq has not been done for most of the Kutub of taareekh. Hence, you can find baseless or weak narrations in many Kutub of taareekh. Shias commonly go through the books of taareekh to dig out baseless narrations which they feel are in support of Shi’ism and which “paint a bad picture of the Muslims”.

However, the narrations they present are mawdhoo`aat, baseless lies. Hence, we state emphatically: Ahkaam of Deen are not derived from history books.

In fact, according to the Hanafi Madh-hab, if an Aayah of the Qur’aan gives a particular ruling, then a person cannot add onto that ruling with even a Hadeeth if that Hadeeth is from the Aahaad (solitary narrations), as stated by Fakhrul Islaam al-Bazdawi رحمة الله عليه and others.

Let alone naskh (abrogation), even ziyaadah `alan-nass is not permissible unless the Hadeeth is mutawaatir, or mash-hoor as stated by Imaam ibn Ameer Haajرحمة الله عليه in at-Taqreer wat-Tahbeer.

Now, the Jumu`ah Salaah is Fardh-e-`Ayn according to the Hanafi Madh-hab, and the one who denies it is a Kaafir, as stated in Radd-ul-Muhtaar `alad-Durril Mukhtaar, and the daleel for this is the Aayah:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا نُودِيَ لِلصَّلاةِ مِنْ يَّوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ فَاسْعَوْا إِلَى ذِكْرِ اللهِ وَذَرُوا البَيْعَ

{“O you who have Imaan! When the nidaa (call) for Salaah is made on the Day of Jumu`ah, then hasten to the Dhikr of Allaah (the Khutbah and Jumu`ah Salaah) and leave off trade…“}

[Soorah Al-Jumu`ah, 62:9]

These munaafiqeen want to cancel something that is Fardh-e-`Ayn, established as qat`iyy (definitively proven and undeniable) by the Qur’aan Kareem, on the basis of an “assumption” made by a “Yes-Sir Qadhi” because of something he dug out of a history book? Because they are munaafiqeen, they take the Deen of Allaah Ta`aalaa as a joke, but the true Muslims happily give their lives for this Deen. In fact, a true Muslim happily gives his life for the protection of a single Sunnah from the Sunan of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم.

2) Even if this narration is accepted as Saheeh, nowhere does it state that Salaah was “suspended” as the munaafiq claims. The munaafiq also claims that the Sahaabah spent months in this condition, but this too is not mentioned. It is another “assumption” from his own side. This is a person who has based his entire religion upon “assumptions”.

Another person can “assume” that تفرّقوا means this: those who were healthy separated from those who were sick, and those who were healthy performed Jumu`ah together, and those who were sick performed Jumu`ah together. Why is that assumption not “reasonable” as well?

Istidlaal is not done using a history book, especially not when the incident cited has multiple ihtimaalaat (possibilities).

Anyone who has studied taareekh (history) and knows the ways of the mu’arrikheen knows that the method of the old mu’arrikheen was to compile all narrations concerning a particular incident, and they would present these incidents in their kutub, because they focused primarily on jam` (collecting) and not on tahqeeq.

A well-known example of this is the case of Imaam al-Khateeb al-Baghdaadi رحمة الله عليه with Imaam Abu Haneefah رحمة الله عليه: a person who reads through the books of Imaam Khateeb al-Baghdaadi will find so many narrations insulting Imaam Abu Haneefah رحمة الله عليه that he would think that there must have been some enormous enmity on the part of Imaam Khateeb al-Baghdaadi towards Imaam Abu Haneefah and the Hanafi Madh-hab. Yet, if he reads those very same kitaabs, he will also find many narrations praising Imaam Abu Haneefah رحمة الله عليه very highly.

Hence, the `Ulamaa have explained that Imaam Khateeb al-Baghdaadi simply gathered everything he had heard regarding Imaam Abu Haneefah and presented these in his Kitaab, regardless of whether those narrations were authentic or not. These mu’arrikheen expected those who came after to do tahqeeq of those kutub of taareekh, sorting out what is authentic from what is not authentic.

Now, if a person were to adopt the methodology of Yes-Sir Qadhi and the other Ulama-e-Soo who try to look for daleel for their baatil views in the books of taareekh, then this person will come across these kitaabs of Imaam Khateeb al-Baghdaadi and arrive at the conclusion that Imaam Abu Haneefah رحمة الله عليه was not even a Muslim – والعياذ بالله – and that the Ahnaaf are “like Christians”, thus he uses this as “proof” that the other three Madhaahib are on Haqq and the Hanafi Madh-hab is on Baatil, when in reality those narrations are nothing more than baseless lies.

Thus, matters of `Aqaa’id and Ahkaam are only taken from rigorously authenticated sources.

3) If the Fuqahaa and `Ulamaa of Islaam were in the habit of closing down the Masaajid and cancelling Salaah each and every time there was a plague or pandemic, it would be well-known. There would be no need to hunt through the kutub of taareekh to pull out an incident which 1) he cannot prove as being saheeh, qat`iyy-uth-thuboot and 2) which has multiple possibilities. The very fact that he had to labour to scratch out this incident shows that this “cancellation of Salaah” is not something well-known among the `Ulamaa for 1,441 years. There have been many plagues over the years; this is not the first.

4) If the people had completely cut off from each other, like he claims, not even performing Salaah together, then what happened to those Muslims who died? Did each person simply die by himself and lay where he was, rotting away, not being buried? There was no janaazah Salaah and no burial?

If he says that there was burial and Janaazah Salaah, that means they had to come together. If they could congregate for Janaazah Salaah – which they would have to be doing very frequently, because people were dying every day – why could they not congregate for Jumu`ah Salaah which is only once a week? Does that make sense to any person with `aql (intellect)?

5) Why restrict this cancellation of Salaah to only the coronavirus (COVID-19)? Why not also cancel Salaah for the flu, TB, AIDS and the many other “contagious” illnesses?

Currently, approximately 15,496 people have died from this COVID-19 according to worldometers.info, but WHO puts the number of deaths from the common flu each year at somewhere between 290,000 to 650,000. That is significantly higher than COVID-19, to say the least.

Hence, we pose this question to them: “If the Masaajid must be closed down and Salaah cancelled because of COVID-19, why must the same thing not be done in the case of the common flu? More people have died from the flu than from COVID-19. According to worldometers.info, approximately 100,657 people have recovered from COVID-19. The very kuffaar that you people worship claim that most of those who die from COVID-19 are old people who were already suffering from other illnesses.

If the Masaajid must be closed due to the risk of contracting the coronavirus, why must they not be closed due to the risk of contracting the flu, or TB? You could be performing Salaah in the Masjid next to someone who has TB, and he is coughing next to you the entire time, and thus you contract TB. Why, then, must the Masaajid not also be closed to prevent the risk of getting TB?”

Every single argument they present in favour of closing the Masaajid and cancelling Salaah due to COVID-19 applies in the case of the flu.

They believe that we must reject the command of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم to “stand shoulder to shoulder” and instead stand two meters apart, due to the risk of contracting COVID-19. Why must a person not do the same due to the risk of catching the flu from the next person?

In fact, there is always some risk or the other involved in performing Salaah next to people in the Masjid, as you do not know what illness the next person has, so why not permanently shut down all Masaajid and cancel Jamaa`ah Salaah, Jumu`ah, Taraaweeh, `Eed, etc., indefinitely? Why “take the risk”? Is the “principle of saving lives” not more important than Jamaa`ah Salaah?

Why run the risk of getting the flu or TB on account of performing Salaah in Jamaa`ah, instead of performing it individually at home? Why is it okay for a person to run the risk of getting the flu and dying, or getting TB and dying? Why, in the case of the other “contagious” illnesses, is it okay to run the risk of contracting them due to performing Salaah next to other people, using towels in the Masjid that other people have used, shaking hands with people, eating out of the same plate with people (as is the Sunnah), etc.?

We want them to answer these questions.

6) As stated earlier, the Kuffaar claim that 15,496 people so far have died from COVID-19. Compare this to the plagues of the past:

  • The Black Plague, known also as the Great Plague, the Great Bubonic Plague, Pestilence, the Great Mortality and the “Black Death”, killed 200 million people worldwide. It wiped out 60% of Europe’s population. It took Europe over 200 years to recover from the Black Plague. Some places, like Florence, only recovered in the 19th century despite the Black Plague having broken out in the 14th century.
  • The Cocoliztli epidemic, in the 1500s, killed 15 million people.
  • The Spanish flu, which broke out in 1918, killed 50 million people.
  • The Asian flu, which broke out in 1957, killed 1.1 million people.
  • The Swine Flu, which broke out just a few years ago in 2009, infected 1.4 billion people around the world and killed up to 575,400 people, according to the CDC, and, unlike COVID-19, it killed mainly those younger than 65.

These are just a handful of plagues. There have been many more in the past.

Take just the Black Plague, for example, which killed 200 million people: why did the `Ulamaa at that time, in the 14th century, not call for the Masaajid to be closed down and Salaah to be cancelled? Why did Salaah continue like normal? 200 million people versus 15,496: that is a massive difference. Did the `Ulamaa back then not understand Islaam? Did they not know about the “Maqaasid-ush-Sharee`ah” and the “principle of saving lives”? Did they not know the Aayah:

ولا تلقوا بأيديكم إلى التهلكة

{“Do not throw yourselves, by your own hands, into destruction…“}

(This Aayah, as a matter of fact, refers to abandoning Jihaad. The Qur’aan says that those who abandon Jihaad are throwing themselves into destruction by their own hands.)

Did they not know about this incident from al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah which Yes-Sir Qadhi has quoted? The difference is simply that the so-called Ulama of today are severely lacking in Imaan and Tawakkul. They do not believe in the Power of Allaah Ta`aalaa. They believe only in the so-called “power” of the West.

Yes, the Fuqahaa of the past stated that those who are sick are exempted from coming to the Masjid, but never did they call for the closure of the Masaajid and the suspension of even Hajj itself.

7) Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

من ترك ثلاث جمع تهاوناً بها طبع الله على قلبه

“Whosoever abandons three Jumu`ahs due to taking it (the matter of Jumu`ah) lightly, Allaah will place a seal on his heart.”

[Narrated in Sunan Abi DaawudSunan at-Tirmidhiand Sunan an-Nasaa’i.]

Explaining this Hadeeth, Imaam al-Munaawi رحمة الله عليه states in Faydh-ul-Qadeer that “placing a seal on his heart” means:

يصير قلبه قلب منافق

“His heart will become the heart of a munaafiq.”

Obviously, the governments will impose restrictions: that is entirely expected. The governments are not Muslims, thus they do not rule according to the Laws of Islaam. Hence, they will act according to what they believe is most suitable for the welfare of the people. It is expected for them to impose restrictions, but it is not befitting for the so-called “Ulamaa” to have out of their own decided to shut down the Masaajid, cancelled the Hajj, cancelled Salaah, imposed the haraam, Baatil “two meter distance” in the Masaajid, etc. That they did from their own side – they were not compelled to do so. Hence, they will have to answer for that on the Day of Qiyaamah.

Finally, to those who believe in throwing out the Sunnah simply on the basis of flimsy excuses: know that when people abandon a Sunnah, Allaah Ta`aalaa takes away from them the Tawfeeq to act upon it thereafter, even if they want to. They will have to bleed in order to act upon it once again.

 

يا مثبّت القلوب ثبّت قلوبنا على دينك

ربّنا لا تزغ قلوبنا بعد إذ هديتنا وهب لنا من لدنك رحمة إنّك أنت الوهّاب

والله تعالى أعلم وعلمه أتمّ وأحكم

RAVAGING PLAGUES OF THE PAST AND MUSLIM REACTION

THEY FLOCKED TO THE MUSAAJID, SMASHED THEIR MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, REPENTED FOR THEIR ZINA AND SPILLED THEIR WINES, BUT IT WAS TOO LATE!  ALAS!

THE ATHAAB TOOK ITS COURSE TO ITS PRESCRIBED LIMIT

The following is a brief account of a devastating plague which hit and devastated Muslim lands in the year 449 Hijri. It is an account by Sibt Ibn Al-Jawzi (Rahmatullah alayh):

“In Jumāda ‘l-Ākhirah [of the year 449] a letter arrived from Bukhārā from Transoxiana that an unprecedented and unheard of pandemic occurred there such that 18,000 caskets (Janaazahs) came out of this region in a single day! Those that died were counted and they were 1,650,000, up to the writing of this letter.

Those who survived passed through these lands and saw nothing but empty stores and locked doors. The pandemic spread to Azerbaijan and then to Ahwāz, Baṣrah and Wāsiṭ, and other regions.  Large pits were dug and 35 people would be dumped in them. The copy of a letter written from Samarkand to Balkh arrived at Baghdād stating that each day 5,000, 6,000 or more righteous Muslims are being buried, and the stores are shut, and the people are engaged night and day in burying their dead, and bathing them and shrouding them.

Every house in which death entered, it would overtake them all. From the houses of the heads and elite, more than 2000 houses of the city were shut, neither old nor young, nor free nor slave, nor heir remained.

All the people repented and gave in charity most of their wealth. They  spilled wine and smashed musical instruments, and remained attached to the Masjids and reciting Qur’ān, and the women in the homes were doing likewise.

Every house in which was wine, its inhabitants died in one night. Whoever had an unlawful woman with him, both died together. The administrator of a Masjid who died had 50,000 dirhams and none accepted it. They were kept for nine days as they were in the Masjid, and then four people came and took them and died with them. Everyone who bequeathed to another, the one bequeathed to died before the testator. Each pair of Muslims between whom was distance (i.e. had become enemies), but did not reconcile died. 700 jurists were with Faqīh ‘Abdul Jabbār ibn Aḥmad and ‘Abd al-Jabbār and other jurists died.

We came upon a sick person whose death throes extended for seven days and he pointed with his finger to a room of the house which we entered and searched and found wine in a container so we turned it upside down and Allāh saved him from death.

It has been said from the start of Shawwāl to the end of Dhu ‘l-Qa‘dah, the caskets (janaazahs) that came out of the doors of Samarkand were counted, and they came to 236,000. (This is besides the mass burials). This pandemic originated in Turkistan, a land of disbelievers, and then came from there to lands of Sāghūn, Kāsghar, Shāsh, Farghānah and those regions and reached Samarkand on the 27th of Ramaḍān of this year.

COMMENT (By Mujlisul Ulama):

“Verily, the Athaab (Punishment) of your Rabb is dreadfully severe.” (Qur’aan)

In the entire history of Islam, from its very inception, to a few weeks ago, NEVER were any Musaajid closed by Muslims, neither by Muslim governments nor by the mutawallis nor by the communities. In our era in close proximity to Qiyaamah, the villainy of the closure of the Musaajid and the cancellation of Salaat are the satanic handiwork of the Munaafiqeen in our midst. Allah Ta’ala has made manifest the Munaafiqeen. They are the rubbish molvis, sheikhs and zindeeq doctors masquerading as Muslims.  There nifaaq has been advertised by Allah Ta’ala for all and sundry to see and to recognize the traitors lurking within the community.

Whenever Musjids closed in any epidemic, it was not a closure by Muslims or the authorities, it was due to the total or near total decimation of the populace.  Bodies were being dumped unceremoniously in mass graves. There was no choice – no option other than to act as they did. No one locked the Musaajid. There were just no Muslims remaining to attend the Musaajid. On the contrary, where there were communities, still alive, they flocked to the Musaajid, supplicating and pleading to Allah Ta’ala. But it was too late. The decree had already gone forth. There was no turning back. The Athaab had to take its course.

Where it was possible, all Muslims flocked to the Musaajid, those affected and those unaffected by the disease. They flocked into the Musaajid, crying and repenting. But once the decree of Athaab has been issued, it followed its trajectory. No dua and no repentance can then avert it. The time for averting the   Greater Athaab which brings obliteration in its wake, is when Allah Ta’ala gives us a mild taste of His lesser punishment in order to jolt us into realization. In this regard, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Most certainly We shall give them to taste of the lesser Punishment, not the greater punishment, for perhaps they may return (to the Path of Rectitude).”

When the Athaabil Adna (Lesser Punishment) is ignored, then the Divine Ordinance stated in the following Qur’aanic Aayat becomes applicable:

“When We intend to destroy (the people of) a settlement (village, town, city, etc.), then We command its affluent people (i.e.  give them unbridled freedom to  wallow in their  filth of sin and immorality). Thus, they (recklessly) and flagrantly indulge in fisq. Then We utterly destroy them.”

Today, all over the world, Muslims are ignoring the Athaabil Adna, and on the contrary are justifying their fisq, fujoor and kufr. This is the scariest part of the prevailing saga. It is the indication for Athaab of a horrendous and shocking kind which is overshadowing us.

THE ISLAMIC RULING REGARDING PLAGUES

BY MARHOOM MUFTI AFZAL HOOSEN ELIAS (Rahmatullah alayh)

The Islaamic Ruling Regarding Plagues

Question: There is a disease spreading in Surat, which the government classifies as a plague, which is contagious. Is this true in the light of the Shari’ah? Can diseases be contagious? What is the ruling concerning fleeing from a plague infested area? It is hoped that you would shed further light on this issue.

Answer: During the Period of Ignorance, people believed that people caught diseases (such as leprosy) from others, which are referred to today as contagious diseases. Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) negated this belief by stating that there is nothing like contagiousness. The Qur’aan attests to the fact that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) does not speak of his own accord, but whatever he says is revelation from Allaah (Surah Najm, verses 3,4.)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (radhiyallahu anhu) reports that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “There is nothing like contagiousness, omens by the flight of birds (people believed that if a bird flew to the left, it was a good sign and a bad sign if it flew to the left), the evil effects of owls and the evil of Safar (people believed that couples should not marry during the last days of Safar).” (Bukhaari Pg.850 and Mishkaatul Masaabeeh (Pg.391).)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (radhiyallahu anhu) also reported that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) once said, “There is nothing like contagiousness, the evil effects of owls and the evil of Safar.” A Bedouin then asked, “O Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)! But why is it that a camel can be as healthy as the deers in the wild, but as soon as it comes into contact with a camel that suffers from a rash, it also contracts the rash?” Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) remarked, “Then from where did the first (ill) camel get the disease from?” (They both got it by the will of Allaah) Bukhaari (Vol.1 Pg.859), Muslim (Vol.2 Pg.230) and Mishkaatul Masaabeeh (Pg.391).

The Ahadeeth above make it clear that Islaam does not hold the belief of contagiousness. Everything happens by the will of Allaah. It is therefore not permissible to think that one will be infected by another person’s disease or to think that one will die by staying in an area where a plague has broken out. Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) prohibited this. Hadhrat Usaama bin Zaid (radhiyallahu anhu) once told Hadhrat Sa’d bin Abi Waqqaas (radhiyallahu anhu) that he heard Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say, “When you hear that a plague has broken out in an area, do not go there but if you happen to be there, do not flee.” Bukhaari (Vol.2 Pg.853) and Mishkaatul Masaabeeh (Pg.135).

It is therefore a grave sin to flee from an area of disease with the thought that one will be saved from it. This will also discourage those already afflicted and break their morale. We have been forbidden from going to an area of plague because should a person be affected by the command of Allaah, Shaytaan will always put the doubt in the heart that one would never have been affected had one not been there. This will corrupt a person’s Imaan. The Hadith has therefore forbidden both fleeing and entering the area for the express reason of safeguarding one’s beliefs. A Mu’min’s belief should be that just as staying will not bring on the disease, leaving will not save one either.

The following appears in Durrul Mukhtaar (Vol.5 Pg.661.): “There will be no harm done if one leaves or enters a plague infested area with the conviction that everything happens by the will of Allaah. It is however detestable (Makrooh) to hold the belief that leaving will save one and that entering will cause one to be affected. The Hadith has prohibited entering and fleeing only for the purpose of safeguarding one’s beliefs.”

Allaah says in the Qur’aan: “Have you seen those people who fled their homes in the thousands out of the fear of death (fearing that they will die in a plague). Allaah said to them, “Die!” (so they all died) and then brought them all back to life.” (Surah Baqarah, verse 243.)

The above verse refers to some seventy thousand people of the Bani Israa’eel who fled a village where there was an outbreak of a plague, thinking that they will be saved. Allaah punished them by causing them all to die. It was only after their Nabi (alayhis salaam) made du’aa to Allaah that He restored them back to life, after which they were convinced that life and death came only from Allaah. (Tafseer Mazhari (Vol.1 Pg.343), Tafseer Ahmadi (Vol.1 Pg.169).)

Another reason for prohibiting entry into a plague infested area is that plague is a punishment from Allaah. For this reason, Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) hurried past the area where the Thamud nation was destroyed and prohibited the Sahabah (radhiyallahu anhum) from entering the city.

Hadhrat Jaabir t reports that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “One who flees from a plague is like one deserting a battlefield and one who remains there patiently will have the reward of a martyr.” (Ahmad, as quoted in Mishkaatul Masaabeeh (Pg.139).)

In his commentary of Mishkaatul Masaabeeh, Shah Abdul Haqq Muhaddith Dehlawi (rahmatullah alayhi) writes, “This Hadith makes it clear that fleeing from a plague infested area is a major sin just as deserting a battlefield is. It is in fact kufr to believe that if one flees, he will certainly be saved and will definitely die if he remains behind.” (Ashi’atul Lama’aat (Vol.1 Pg.653).)

He also writes, “The rule is that one must not flee when in a plague infested area and neither go there when one is not there. However, there are some instances when it is permissible to flee, such as a place where an earthquake is pending or when sitting beneath a wall that is on the verge of collapse. However, since no Hadith is mentioned concerning incidents other than plagues, it is necessary to remain patiently in an area where a plague had broken out and it will not be permissible to flee from there. It is wrong to judge these other incidents by the plague because death from the plague is only a speculation while death from the other causes is nearly certain. Nevertheless, it will not be permissible to flee from such an area, while no Hadith mentions that a person will be sinful and guilty of a major sin by fleeing from any of the other areas. We ask Allaah for safety. (Ashi’atul Lama’aat (Vol.1 Pg.639).)

The following appears in Majaalisul Abraar (Pgs. 345,346.): “The Ulema differ with regard to the degree of prohibition. Qaadhi Taajud Deen Subki (rahmatullah alayhi) states that our stance is that of the majority who believe that it is Haraam to flee. Some Ulema however state that it is Makrooh Tanzihi although all agree that it is permissible to leave for a reason other than fleeing. This is because Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has stated at the end of the Hadith, ‘do not leave there with the intention of fleeing.’ The prohibition against fleeing is established from the Hadith of Hadhrat Aa’isha (radhiyallahu anha) in which Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, ‘One who flees from a plague, is like one deserting a battlefield.’ Another narration of Ibn Khuzaymah (radhiyallahu anhu) states that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, ‘Fleeing from it is amongst the major sins and Allaah will punish a person for it if He does not forgive it’ … Abul Hasan Madaa’ini (rahmatullah alayhi) quotes his father as saying, ‘Few people who flee from a plague are saved from it.’ Allaama Taajud Deen Subki (rahmatullah alayhi) remarks, ‘What he says is based on experience. It is not at all impossible to believe that Allaah could make a person’s flight from a place of plague the cause for reducing his lifespan because the Qur’aan cites flight from a battlefield as a cause for this, when Allaah says: ‘Say, ‘Your fleeing will be of no avail to you when you flee from death or from being killed for then you will benefit from life only but a little longer.’ It is mentioned that his father may have deduced this from this verse.”

Hadhrat Mujaddid Alf Thaani (rahmatullah alayhi) has mentioned the same thing in his Maktoobaat. Refer to Vol.1 Pg.430 for the details. One must therefore trust in Allaah and remain where one is because fleeing will not help. One must repent from one’s sins and make du’aa to Allaah because only He can help one.

In the commentary of the above Hadith in Mirqaat (Vol.3 Pg.360.), it is stated, “Ibnul Malik (rahmatullah alayhi) says, “Fleeing will not repel Allaah’s punishment. The only thing that will do this is Taubah and Istighfaar.”

If everyone flees the place, who will be there to tend to the ill and bury the dead?

Furthermore, this will break the morale of the ill and cause them to develop ill feelings towards those leaving them. The best is therefore to remain behind, trusting in Allaah and hoping for rewards from Him.

Hadhrat Aa’isha (radhiyallahu anhu) narrates that when she asked Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) about plagues, he said, “It used to be a punishment that Allaah would send to people but which he has made a mercy for the Mu’mineen. When a person stays patiently in a place where a plague has struck, knowing that only that which Allaah has decreed will happen, he will receive the rewards of a martyr.” (Bukhaari (Vol.2 Pg.853) and Mishkaatul Masaabeeh (Pg.135).)

Hadhrat Anas (radhiyallahu anhu) reports that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “A plague is martyrdom for every Muslim.” (Bukhaari (Vol.2 Pg.853) and Mishkaatul Masaabeeh (Pg.135).)

Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) also said, “Martyrs are five; the one who dies in a plague, one who dies of a stomach ailment, one who drowns, one who is crushed and one who dies in the path of Allaah.” (Bukhaari and Muslim, as quoted in Mishkaatul Masaabeeh (Pg.135).)

Another Hadith quotes that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “A plague is martyrdom for my Ummah and a mercy to them, while it is punishment for the Kuffaar.” (Kanzul Ummaal (Vol.5 Pg.186).)

Allaama Shaami (rahmatullah alayhi) states, “The person who remains patiently behind in a town overcome with a plague will gain the rewards of a martyr even if he dies of another cause. According to a narration of Bukhaari and Ibn Hajar (rahmatullah alayhi), he will also not be questioned in the grave.” (Raddul Mukhtaar (Vol.1 Pg.852).)

Imaam Rabbaani (rahmatullah alayhi) states, “In his book Badhlul Ma’oon, Sheikhul Islaam Ibn Hajar (rahmatullah alayhi) states about the virtues of a plague that the person who dies in a plague will not be questioned in the grave because he is like one killed in a battle. Similarly, one who remains in a plague infested area with the conviction that only that will happen to him what Allaah decrees, such a person will not be punished because he is like a Muraabit (one guarding the borders of a Muslim country). Sheikh Suyuti (rahmatullah alayhi) has mentioned this in his book Sharhus Sudoor… Those who remain safe after fleeing have only not died because their lifespan had not ended and those who remained behind and died, only died because their lifespan was over. It must therefore be borne in mind that neither will fleeing save one nor will staying kill one.” (Maktoobaat Imaam Rabbaani (Vol.1 Pg.687).)

It is usually people who engage in acts of flagrant immodesty who are afflicted with plague and disease their forefathers have never heard of. This is established by a Hadith of Ibn Maajah (pg.300). A Hadith of Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (radhiyallahu anhu) in Ibn Maajah and Tabraani states that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “When fornication becomes rife in a nation, death becomes the order of the day.” (Majaalisul Abraar (Pg.346).)

A verse of the Qur’aan states, “so We sent a punishment (a plague) from the heavens upon the oppressors because of their disobedience.”(Surah Baqarah, verse 59.) This verse refers to a plague that struck the Bani Israa’eel because of their disobedience to Allaahs’ commands. Tafseer Baydaawi (Vol.1 Pg.50) states that this plague killed twenty four thousand people in a few moments.

Although the above verses of the Qur’aan and Ahadeeth tell us that a plague comes because of people’s sins, Allaah makes it a source of mercy for the Mu’mineen and punishment for the Kuffaar, as established by the Hadith of Bukhaari and Kanzul Ummaal.

The gist of it all is that we must never have the belief that diseases are contagious.

However, it may appear to one that this belief is contradicted by Ahadeeth such as

“Run from a leper as you run from a lion” and “Do not take a healthy camel near a sick camel”. The answer to this is that Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made these statements only because of his compassion for the Ummah and to safeguard their beliefs from corruption. While leprosy is itself not contagious, the fear is that when someone contracts it after interacting with a leper, he may just start to believe that diseases are contagious. If this was not the intention of the above two Ahadeeth, then why did Rasulullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say, “There is nothing like contagiousness” and “Then from where did the first (ill) camel get the disease from?”? The Ahadeeth never contradict each other.

The most important factor to remember is that everything happens by the will of Allaah and nothing can happen without it. Look at this way, the entire family of a leper are not lepers and everyone in a plague infested area are not affected. I have myself been through three plagues but am healthy by the grace of Allaah. My grandmother passed away in a plague in the year 1325 A.H. At that time, my grandfather, my uncle, my two aunts and my parents were living with her in the same house and nursing her, but none of them were affected. Not only did they survive the plague then, but they also passed through two other plagues afterwards and, by the grace of Allaah, they all remained safe and healthy. If diseases were contagious, why were they all not affected? We should therefore correct our beliefs and trust in the decrees of Allaah. And Allaah knows best what is most correct.
