THE SCRAP KUFR “CAPE ACCORD”

By Mujlisul Ulama

“That Day (of Qiyaamah when Allah will resurrect them all, then they will take oaths before Him just as they are taking oaths before you (here on earth) whilst they labour under the impression that they are on something valid (i.e. on rectitude). Behold! Verily, they are liars.

Shaitaan has overwhelmed them, and he has made them forget the Remembrance of Allah. Indeed they are the legion of Shaitaan. Behold! The legion of Shaitaan are the losers (in this dunya and in the Aakhirah).

Verily, those who oppose Allah and His Rasool, verily they are in utter disgrace.

Allah has ordained: ‘Verily I and My Messengers will most certainly be victorious. Verily, Allah is Most Powerful and Mighty.

You will not find people who believe in Allah and the Last Day befriending those who oppose Allah and His Rasool even if they (the opponents) are their fathers, or their sons or their brothers or their families. Indeed they are those in whose hearts Allah has engraved Imaan and He aids them (the true Mu’mineen) with a Rooh from Him. He will enter them into Gardens beneath which flow rivers wherein they shall dwell forever. Allah is well-pleased with them, and they are well-pleased with Him. Indeed they are the   LEGION of Allah. Behold! It is the Legion of Allah which will be victorious.” [Surah Al-Mujaadalah, Aayaat 21 – 22]

OPPORTUNISTS AND BOOTLICKERS
These gracious Aayaat of the Qur’aan-e-Kareem sum up the status of the mudhilleen and the mudhalleen of the Accord of Dhalaal which is being advertised by munaafiqeen and murtaddeen as the ‘cape accord’. This shaitaani accord consists of opportunists and bootlickers. These spineless fence sitters bereft of Imaan, whilst professing to be Muslims, are today vociferously and jubilantly proclaiming support for the ANC government, for this suits their vile tastes of opportunism. Tomorrow if there happens to be a DA government in power or a government of another persuasion, then these self-same opportunists will swiftly shift their fickle support to the new regime.

In their inordinate quest for contemptible worldly and nafsaani objectives they behave like chameleons, searching for hollow honour. About such trash, Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’aan Majeed:  

“(The munaafiqeen are) those who take as friends the Kaafireen besides the Mu’mineen. What! Are they searching for honour from them? Verily, all honour belongs to Allah.” [An-Nisaa, Aayat 139]

Their nifaaq confirms their fickleness and total unreliability. Munaafiqeen are always contemptible fence sitters and this is confirmed by the Qur’aan Majeed. In this category fits the MJC and its cohorts. Whilst this outfit dubs itself a ‘Muslim’ judicial council, it lacks in valid understanding of the fundamental rudiments of valid Imaan, leave alone the plethora of Masaa-il regulating the lives of  genuine Muslims – those Muslims upon whom Allah Azza Wa Jal lauds glowing praise in the aforementioned  Aayaat as well as in other Aayaat of the Qur’aan Majeed.

The miscreants of this phantom accord, the ‘cape accord’, have nothing of Islam to present. They only monotonously trumpet some political clichés to appease the politicians and the rulers, and they display their nifaaq by branding the Haqq of the Qur’aan stated by the Ulama-e-Haqq as ‘hate speech’. In terms of their concept of ‘hate speech’, the Qur’aan Majeed and the Ahaadith are replete with ‘hate speech’. Thus they (these modernist, zindeeq miscreants of the shaitaani ‘accord’) are on the same wave length as the French enemies of Islam who are calling for the expungement from the Qur’aan Majeed of all such verses which they deem ‘hate speech’.

FOR THEM THE QUR’AAN IS ‘HATE SPEECH’    
Let it be clearly understood that the Qur’aan Majeed is replete with such Aayaat which according to the modernist zanadiqah and the kuffaar are all ‘hate speech’. What these miscreants are saying – the modernist miscreants who profess to be Muslims – is that the Qur’aan promotes violence and hate. This is because they are hidden Shiahs who believe that the Qur’aan Majeed is a fabrication of the Sahaabah who according to them are all murtaddeen.

Shiahs, contrary to their deceptive taqiyah professions, do not believe in the authenticity of the Qur’aan which Muslims have with them today. How is it possible for them to believe in the authenticity of the Qur’aan Majeed when they believe that this Qur’aan which we Muslims have was compiled and fabricated by such a group of people who were all murtaddeen?

WHAT IS ‘HATE SPEECH’?
Just what do they mean by ‘hate speech of extremists’? And who are the extremists who propagate this ‘hate speech’? They speak with considerable ambiguity designed to beguile and deceive, and to trap the authorities in their canard of ‘hate speech’. Furthermore, the propagation of this canard is the penchant of the modernist, munaafiq Shiah sympathizers and even hidden murtads who have become Shiahs but remain within the folds of the community to undermine Islam in furtherance of the Shiah agenda.

It devolves upon them to refrain from these despicable riddles and to state exactly who are the ‘extremists’ and which of their statements are ‘hate speech’ in the meaning of the secular law of the country, which render them ‘extremists’. In reality, their monotonous slogans of ‘hate speech’ and ‘extremists’ are pure bunkum calculated to beguile the authorities. The motive being the pernicious plot of silencing the Ulama-e-Haqq from stating the Haqq of the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and to accord official Islamic status to Shiahs who are NOT Muslims. They have their own, separate, distinct religion which is the antithesis of the Islam delivered by Jibraaeel (Alayhis salaam) to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the Islam about which the Qur’aan explicitly and emphatically states:

“This Day have I perfected for you your Deen, and completed upon you My favour, and I have chosen Islam as the Deen for you.”

Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’aan: “Whoever searches for a religion other than Islam, never ever shall it be accepted from him.” Now when we proclaim that those who do not believe in Islam are doomed to everlasting perdition in Jahannam, is this ‘hate speech’? If it is, then all Christians and all Jews should also be accused of hate speech. It is their belief that Muslims are doomed for Hell-Fire. We do not    believe in the kufr/shirk concept of trinity and that ‘Christ died for our sins’, and in all the other doctrines of kufr of the other religions. They too should be accused of ‘hate speech’ for condemning Muslims to Hell-Fire.

ISLAM IS THE SOLE REPOSITORY OF NAJAAT
Islam teaches that Islam is the sole repository of salvation. Does the MJC and the other modernists and zanadaqah of the MJC’s ilk accept this fundamental doctrine of Islam? They should speak up and proclaim what is concealed in their hearts. At functions such as their haraam ‘iftaar’ party and munaafiq ‘cape accord’ functions, they acquit themselves with flowery speeches to beguile non-Muslims. With their dubious, forked-tongue speeches they seek to convey the idea that Islam accepts all religions to be on the same pedestal. But this is a despicable canard. When the truth is proclaimed, they label it as ‘hate speech’. The Haqq of the Qur’aan when proclaimed is presented as the cause for anarchy such as the atrocity at the Shiah temple in Verulam. Any Muslim of intelligence who has no satanic agenda can understand that what had happened at the Shiah temple was not the deed of Muslims.

SINISTER FORCES
There are sinister forces who have a pernicious agenda for abominable perpetrations of this type. All over the world the sinister forces of the West are  creating destabilization to entrench their presence in these lands to enable them to siphon off the wealth and natural resources of these so-called ‘third world’ countries which in reality are the richest lands. They are rich in natural resources in which the West is generally lacking, but the West has succeeded in blinding the peoples and the regimes of these countries convincing them that they are the beggars of the world who cannot survive without western aid.

They have destabilized the extremely wealthy state of Nigeria by creating and fielding Boko Haraam. Now they are busy unfolding the very same conspiracy in the richest province of Mozambique. They have created a phantom ‘Al-Shabaab’ to destabilize the country, and this destabilization will entrench the foothold of the western sinister forces to enable them to become the masters and ‘protectors’ of the natural gas wealth and of the regimes. They will not leave this wealthy country of South Africa in peace.

But it is sad and lamentable that the regimes and the intelligence agencies of these countries have miserably failed to understand these western plots. On the contrary, the West has succeeded in duping them with the ‘jihadist’ phantom. Every atrocity which the West commits is attributed to Islam.

In fact, even vagabonds of the MJC ilk, either on account of   shocking stupidity or calculated design, are attributing such misdeeds to Islam by implication. They too are the victims of western snares. They also subscribe to the utterly ludicrous falsehood that outfits such as Boko Haraam are ‘fundamentalist’ Muslims waging their type of ‘jihad’. Neither are these outfits genuine Islamic organizations nor are they engaging in Jihad as ordained by Islam. 

BELIEFS OF KUFR
Let these miserable munaafiqeen and zanadaqah state their belied with clarity on the numerous issues on which Islam clashes violently in belief with Shiahs, Christians, Jews, Hindus, etc., etc. What does the MJC say about those who propagate that:

1) Hadhrat Aishah (Radhiyallahu anha) had committed adultery – Nauthubillah -.

2) The Qur’aan is a false book fabricated by the Sahaabah who, according to Shiahs, have reneged from Islam (committed irtidaad)?

3) Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthmaan (Radhiyallahu anhum) had usurped the Khilaafate thereby denying the right of Hadhrat Ali (Radhiyallahu anhu)

4) That almost all the Sahaabah, including the Ashrah Mubash-sharah, will be the inates of Jahannam.

5) That Imaam Mahdi will appear with the true Qur’aan which he has with him in concealment in some cave.

6) That the Shiah Imaams are infallible, sinless and even higher than Ambiya.

7) That Jibraeel (Alayhis salaam) brings Wahi to the Shiah imaams.

8) That Jibraeel (alayhis salaam) had erred in delivering the Wahi of Allah Ta’ala. Instead of delivering it to Hadhrat Ali (Radhiyallahu anhu), he mistakenly delivered it to Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).  

9) And, worst of all – Allah Ta’ala has also committed errors – Nauthubillah! One such example is that Allah Ta’ala erred when He proclaimed in the Qur’aan that the Sahaabah will be in Jannat. This was a Divine error – Nauthubillaah!

Stating these Truths is ‘hate speech’ for the MJC and the ‘cape accord’ cartel. And, they din the ears of the president and the authorities with this falsehood of ‘hate speech’ seeking to convince them that the Haqq stated by the Ulama-e-Haqq is ‘hate speech’ which culminates in atrocities.

These are simply a couple of their virulent beliefs of kufr which Muslims have to compulsorily expose especially in the current scenario where Shiahs and their hidden sympathizers are clandestinely propagating these beliefs of kufr to ignorant Muslims.

While according to the secular constitution of the country it is the right of any person to accept these extremely noxious and repugnant Shiah beliefs, it is our right to conspicuously highlight   and proclaim to our community the kufr of these beliefs. When others propagate kufr, it is not hate speech. But when the Ulama state the truth, then suddenly this is hate speech emanating from extremists.

THE PHANTOM ACCORD OF DISCORD
The formation of the phantom ‘cape accord’ designed for discord is another scrap paper outfit whose only activity is to rant and rave against those who uphold Islam and proclaim the Deen which we have inherited from the Sahaabah. This shaitaani ‘accord’ is well in accord with Shiahs and evilly disposed towards Muslims. They are in bed and at home with Shiahs, but Muslims are aliens to them. This by itself is a revelation of the nifaaq lurking in their hearts. Our statement pertaining to their nifaaq, will also be in their list of ‘hate speech’. But this is the truth.

They are at home with those who denigrate the Sahaabah and deny the Qur’aan while they find those who honour the Sahaabah and uphold the Qur’aan to be aliens. Having befriended Shiahs, they have become alienated from Muslims regarding us as strangers. This is also one of the ways in which the following prediction of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is attaining materialization:

“Islam began Ghareeb (forlorn, regarded as a stranger). Soon shall it return to that (initial stage of) forlornness. Therefore, glad tidings for the Ghuraba (those who adhere to true and original Islam).”

THE SHAITAANI OPPORTUNISM OF THE MJC
Among the vilest opportunists in the Muslim community is the MJC. Besides carrion-halaalizing for the acquisition of millions of rands in haraam fees and making grandiose senseless statements to hoodwink the audiences, it performs no valid Deeni function. It has miserably failed in handling even marital issues. The MJC is an entity devoid of principles, hence its stances are ludicrously incongruent. 

The MJC’s handling of the Ahmedi issue testifies to this shaitaani incongruency which stems from its religiosity. In its vicious stance against the Ahmedi kuffaar in Cape Town, the MJC had waged its so-called ‘jihad’ on different levels. In addition to the legal battle, violence was employed to evict Ahmedis from the Musjids. It had displayed considerable venom against the Ahmedis. Yet these kuffaar had not denigrated the Sahaabah. The Ahmedis do not subscribe to the host of evil beliefs which constitute Shi’ism. Yet, the MJC is in bed with the Shiahs. It is desirous of an accord with those who disgorge the vilest form of abuse on the Sahaabah.

This pro-Shiah stance despite the intolerable kufr of Shi’ism is the effect of the MJC’s craving for the boodle which is readily available from Iran for its cronies and supporters. It is the monetary lust which formulates volatile ‘principles’ and stances for the MJC. It has long ago traded its Imaan for the jeefah of this dunya.

For the Muslim community in the Western Cape, the MJC is in reality a curse. Perhaps the MJC is Allah’s Athaab for the gross transgression of the Muslim community of that region just as the likes of the NNB fraudulent jamiat with its reverend and pundit is a form of Divine Punishment for the Muslim community of Gauteng and environs. According to the Hadith, the leaders are generally the reflection of the deeds of the people.

Despite the real and literal hate speech and hate tactics which the MJC had adopted for the Ahmedis, the miserable clowns and coons of the MJC are today propagating that the Qur’aanic  Aqaaid which the Ulama-e-Haqq are presenting in refutation of the evil Shiahs are ‘hate speech’.  Supportive of the Shiah accord for despicable ulterior motives, the vile kufr of Shi’ism has become acceptable to the MJC whilst the comparatively lesser kufr of the Ahmedis was so much intolerable that it had justified hate speech and physical violence against Ahmedis. Their haraam opportunism and shaitaaniyat are quite conspicuous for men of intelligence. 

THE MJC’S LEADERSHIP DECEPTION
The MJC portrays itself as the leader and representative of the Muslim community of the Western Cape. This image which the MJC always seeks to project of itself is a massive deception. The government has become the victim of this deception. Generally, the Muslim community in the Western Cape does not follow the MJC. The MJC has not been an asset for the community.  Whilst the MJC projects itself as a supporter of the ANC, it is unable to procure votes for the ANC.   Despite such a large majority of Muslims in Cape Town, the DA is in power. Most voting Muslims in the Western Cape vote for the DA. They do not heed the call of the phantom self-proclaimed ‘leader’. The government should study the scenario and not become the victim of MJC deception. The MJC is a phantom which does not represent the Muslim community.

THE HARAAM ACCORD
The so-called ‘cape accord’ which in reality is an entity of Discord, is haraam for Muslims. The bigoted modernists and munaafiqeen label this statement as ‘hate speech’. When we say that trinity is kufr and its believers are destined for Jahannam, they say it is ‘hate speech’. When we say that worshipping idols is kufr and its worshippers will everlastingly languish in Jahannam, they say it is ‘hate speech’. In short, the whole of Islam is ‘hate speech’ for the munaafiqeen Shiah sympathisers. In their understanding, a substantial portion of the Qur’aan should be expunged, and Qur’aanic terminology should not be   mentioned. Shar’i facts should not be labelled with the appropriate Qur’aanic terminology as prescribed by Allah Azza Wa Jal. This is their conception of the satanic cape accord’ which has absolutely no room for acceptance in the Shariah.

The only accord acceptable to Muslims is the Divine Accord stated in the Qur’aan Shareef.   Commanding this Accord, Allah Azza Wa Jal states:

“He who denies taaghoot (the devil and his agents) and believes in Allah, verily, He has held on to a powerful Accord.?????????????

The Qur’aanic Accord demands dissociation from kufr and all accords of kufr. It demands Imaan. But the ‘cape accord’ is structured on kufr with which Muslims cannot have any truck.

Dissociation from a kuffaar accord fabricated by Shiah supporters  is not hatred nor hate speech.

Co-existence and harmony are possible for Muslims within the confines of the Shariah. The requisite for such co-existence is that those who pretend to desire co-existence should not attempt to shove kufr down our throats nor should they expect us to honour and forge friendship with those who revile the Azwaaj-e-Muttahharaat and the Sahaabah. For them is their religion and for us is our religion. If they learn to tolerate the Haq we state, there will be no need for a stupid accord.

The actual motive for the ‘accord’ plot is to promote Shi’ism to unsuspecting and ignorant Muslims, and for the modernist munaafiqeen to hoist themselves as the leaders of the Muslim community. But they were too dim in the brains to understand that their stupid attempt would be doomed for failure just as the attempt by bogus ‘uucsa’ to   elevate itself to the pedestal of Muslim leadership and to trade the idea of it being the sole  representative of the Ulama and the community of South Africa. All such dishonest and fraudulent exercises end in failure with greater discord.

For the MJC and its ilk, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“What! Do you search for honour by them? (Know that) all honour belongs to Allah.”

COEXISTENCE?
Precisely what is the conception of toleration and co-existence which the MJC propagates in its bootlicking of the Shiahs and the political leaders? Muslims have co-existed with Shiahs and lived in harmony for over a thousand years in the various Muslim countries. The Ulama had not preached violence against them. When the Taliban established  themselves as the rulers of Afghanistan, they did not maltreat the Shiahs. Not a single Shiah temple was demolished by the orthodox Taliban. There was   co-existence and harmony. Of course, the Shiahs understood that they had to behave themselves and keep their villainous attitudes and beliefs to themselves. They did not antagonize Muslims by propagating hatred for the Sahaabah. But these stupid modernist munaafiqeen of the scrap cape accord satanically give out the message that our proclamation of the Shiahs as kuffaar is hate speech. This is Islam’s belief. This is the belief of the Ummah, and we should not be expected to submit to the satanic ideologies of Shiahs and their munaafiq supporters hiding in the folds of the Muslim community.

The unity of the Ummah is dependent on the Qur’aanic Accord which Allah Ta’ala describes as Hablullaah (The Rope of Allah).

“Hold on to the Accord of Allah (Hablullaah) and do not split up.”  

Without adhering to the Sunnah, there will never be unity among Muslims. Unity with Shiahs cannot be expected in our wildest dreams nor be hallucinated in any way. But this is not propagation of violence nor hate speech. It is the reality to which Muslims subscribe, and which no haraam ‘accord’ of any kind can ever abrogate. It is essential that all these opportunists and munaafiqeen understand this message clearly. They may fabricate their accord with the Shiahs, but should not seek to hoist it on Muslims. They will miserably fail.

A detailed analysis of the baatil terms of the cape accord shall be published soon, Insha-Allah.

THE WORLD CUP | THE SPIRITUAL HARMS

By Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh)

[This article was prepared before the World Cup 2010, which was hosted by South Africa. The advices relate and apply to all sports events, which are in conflict with Islamic teachings.]

The hype and talk presently is the World Cup. Soccer-mania has gripped the mind, the heart, the speech, the time and the money of many, many Muslims.

And these many, many Muslims argue: “It’s ONCE IN A LIFETIME…We are the HOST country … It’s the World Cup which cannot be missed at any cost…”.

And we naively believe that these reasons give us the go-ahead to support, promote and participate.

But there is one serious fact that makes us unsuitable and incompatible for what I would describe as an International “upsurge of sins” – and that reason is: We are Muslims. And we are very fortunate that we are Muslims. As such, there is no compatibility between a Muslim and sin.

Let us discuss why we, as Muslims, cannot and should not align ourselves to the World Cup and other such sporting events.

Let us read with an open heart and mind.

REASONS WHY MUSLIMS SHOULD NOT ATTEND AND NOT SUPPORT THE WORLD CUP:

1.) SALAAH

It is a common observance, that many, many Muslims are totally neglectful of Salaah when it comes to International, National or local sporting events.

Even those who have some link with the Masaajid, will choose to forego Salaah in Jamaat and even the Salaah itself, so as not to miss a moment in watching men run after a ball. Men, running after a ball – Is this intelligent?

Let us relate this to real life and the inevitable: How will this benefit us in this world and the hereafter? Will any one of these sports players be able to intercede on our behalf, before Allah Ta’ala, when we have to account for our actions, for our indulgence in futile and even Haraam activities?

Our Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “…Do not forgo Salaah intentionally, lest you should get out of the fold of Islam. Do not perpetrate disobedience to Allah, lest you deserve His Wrath…”

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) also said: “The dividing line between Kufr and Imaan is Salaah.” And : “A person who has missed one Salaah is like one who has lost all his family and wealth.”

Just as we would be grief-stricken at the loss of all of our beloved family members and the loss of all of our wealth, properties, and everything else, similarly should we grieve over losing even ONE Salaah?

Those few who do perform Salaah at the stadium or grounds, whilst the shouting, screaming, music, drink and other sins are being engaged in simultaneously, should think for themselves of what a display of hypocrisy they make. Because that is exactly what it is: Hypocrisy.

2.) HERO-WORSHIPPING

Allah Ta’ala mentions in the Qur`aan Shareef, in Surah Munafiqoon:

“But honour belongs to Allah, His Messenger and the Believers…”

[Surah Munafiqoon 63 : 8]

And in Surah An-Nisaa:

‘…To those who take for friends unbelievers rather than Believers: is it honour they seek among them? Nay, – all honour is with Allah.’

To deal honestly and truthfully with disbelievers or to assist the poor and needy amongst them, are from the teachings of Islam.

However, to integrate with them in such a manner, that we lose our Islamic identity or give up on our Islamic culture is prohibited because this is extremely harmful to one’s Imaan.

Many have given up Imaan and Islam due to very close friendship and relationship with those who do not believe in Allah Ta’ala, His Final Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and the Day of Judgement.

…So we find people going absolutely crazy and wild over soccer players, cricket players and their likes. And one wonders, what is all the clamour and fuss about… when their “outstanding” achievement in life seems to be, kicking, throwing or hitting a ball? Does this call for hero-worship? Is this our shallow understanding of success as Muslims?

Do we not know that the most successful of all people are the Ambiyaa and their followers? Are we even aware of the tremendous successes of the Sahabah? They were MEN. And Brave Men. Their history, their feats, their conquests drown out the thousands of insignificant goals scored by soccer players.

In fact, there cannot be any comparison and likeness. The lives of the Sahabah (Radhiyallahu Anhum) were constructive and productive – for their Deen and Aakhirah, as well as for those who emulate them. The lives of these players are destructive to their hereafter, as well as for those who are obsessed with them and emulate them.

We should reflect over our obsession, veneration and craze of film-stars, sport-stars and others who are presently the enemies of Allah Ta’ala. …A warning has been sounded, directing us to make sincere Taubah.

Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur`aan Shareef:

‘O People of Imaan! Do not take My enemies and your enemies as friends, inclining towards them with love. Verily, they have rejected the truth which has come to you (from your Rabb)…’

[Surah Mumtahina 60 : 1]

We seem to very easily forget that we are Muslims and all Muslims have dangerous enemies: So whilst our enemies shrewdly convince us to spend thousands of Rands, waste our energy and time on useless, futile sports such as the World Cup and other sporting events, they gleefully bomb, kill, rape, oppress and harass our brothers and sisters in other parts of the world … but we are so intoxicated with World Cups, cricket and soccer matches, that we don’t even know our enemies have deceived us!

Have we not witnessed enough enmity in Occupied Palestine, in Pakistan, Kashmir, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia and other parts of the world? Those who were considered friends and companions were the first to assault, kill, maim and even rape our Muslim brothers and sisters, for no other reason than that they are Believers in Allah Ta’ala. …Have we not taken any lesson? Have we not witnessed the blood of the Muslims flowing in Bosnia, like rivers?

When we claim to have love for Allah Ta’ala, how can we love these types of sporting events?

Allah Ta’ala advises us:

“O you who Believe! Take not for friends unbelievers rather than Believers : do you wish to offer Allah and open proof against yourselves?”

…In other words, we should not make the unbelievers our bosom pals.

Once again, it does not mean that we should not treat them with kindness, deal honestly and assist when there is need. …However: Will participation and support in the World Cup attract them towards Islam?

3.) MUSIC

Almost every venue, event and occasion today seems to demand “music” as part of the entertainment. As Muslims, we know fully well, that music is not the “pleasure” of a true believer because Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) specifically mentioned that one of his objectives was to destroy musical instruments.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “My Rabb has commanded me to destroy all musical instruments…” and also: “Music causes hypocrisy to grow in the heart just as water causes crops to grow.”[1]

According to another Hadeeth of Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam): ‘Music is from shaytaan and accommodating it in anyway is Nifaaq (hypocrisy).’

One of our pious elders (DB) warned about the harms of music: “Beware of music because music reduces modesty and shame, it increases lust and destroys one’s dignity and respect. Its effect is like the effect of alcohol.”

Then, would it be morally correct for a MUSLIM to be present at an event where music is ‘a must have’?

4.) ALCOHOL

The Ahadith make mention : “Wine is the gatherer of sin.”[2], “Wine is the leader of all indecency and is from among the major sins…” [3]

Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) also said : “Abstain from consuming wine, for verily it is the key to all evil.”[4]

Every person that is associated to alcohol – be it the manufacturer, the one who transports, the one who sells, buys or serves comes under the curse of Allah Ta’ala.[5] And those who keep company and incline towards the transgressors have to contend with the same consequences, for Allah Ta’ala warns us:

“And do not incline towards the wrongdoers, lest the fire should catch you, and you have no supporters other than Allah, then you should not be helped.” [Surah Hud 11 : 113]

5.) ZINA (ADULTERY / FORNICATION)

Allah Ta’ala says :

“And come not near to Zina. Verily it is a shameful and evil path.”

[Surah Al- Isra 17 : 32]

It is a very evident fact that these events promote Zina in abundance. Besides adultery of the eyes which is also categorized as zina and which is very common at these types of venues, with the indecent and revealing attire, there is actual zina that is being promoted and advertised.

With the thousands of prostitutes who are visiting our country and the thousands more who are local – what else can be expected, except an escalation in adultery and fornication and a much higher risk of very severe punishment descending… (May Allah Ta’ala protect us from His punishment)

The summary and outline of various Ahaadeeth, is that plague, poverty and diseases which were unheard of previously, earthquakes, drought and destruction, birth of illegitimate children, and even escalation of deaths will follow in the wake of adultery and immorality.

If a person commits adultery, then the priceless and invaluable commodity of Imaan is removed from his body. Hazrat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyalluhu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam said: ‘Allah Ta’ala removes the Imaan of that person who drinks wine or engages in adultery like how one of you removes his shirt from his head’.[6]

Then what will be the condition of the person who dies whilst committing zina?

6.) WASTAGE AND EXTRAVAGANCE

Allah Ta’ala states explicitly :

“…And do not squander recklessly. Surely, squanderers are brothers to shayateen, and shaytaan is very ungrateful to his Lord.” [Surah Bani Israeel 17 : 26/27]

Spending R800 or R1000, whether more or less, on one ticket – and we know many are spending much, much more, on many tickets – is money wasted, and wastage and squandering are categorized as sin in Islam – whether on that which is permissible or otherwise. Moreover, the sin is compounded when it is being spent to view something at a place hosting a combination of evils.

Besides the tickets for the various matches, much more money will be spent on travel and accommodation – with airfares and rates going through the roof.

Consider how many loaves of bread, how many litres of milk or necessities of life, could have been provided for thousands who live below the bread line or thousands more who are in dire need of medical assistance… How can we be so complacent when so many are without food, water, electricity, medicine and other needs?

Doesn’t our Imaan and conscience trouble us in the least?

Wastage and extravagance are a cause of drought, high cost living and other forms of punishment, as drawn from the Ahadeeth – and it is what we are seeing all around us.

7.) DRESS

Islam has gifted us with a dress code, which identifies us as Muslims – which makes us flag-bearers of Islam, representatives of Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and Inviters to Islam. We have been expressly forbidden from adopting any semblance with the cultural or religious dressing style of people of other faiths..

By wearing soccer t-shirts, caps, bags with the 2010 football logos clearly indicates our love and support for the event and the culture. Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “The one who imitates others is not of us.” And: “Whoever imitates a nation is from amongst them.”

We are the nation of Islam, and should be rightly proud of our beautiful culture and dress because it is the culture and dress of the greatest after Allah Ta’ala, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam). …It is the height of foolishness to exchange diamonds for stones.

8.) MIXED GATHERINGS

The disbelievers have no concept of segregation. They advocate mixed gatherings because it facilitates more sins and immorality. It works in their favour because there is easy gratification of sensual desires and sinful pleasures.

The Shari’ah instructs us: ‘IT IS NOT PERMISSIBLE TO BE PRESENT IN A GATHERING WHERE ALLAH TA’ALA IS BEING DISOBEYED.’

THE PURPOSE OF CREATION AND OBJECTIVE OF LIFE

Allah Ta’ala mentions in the Qur’aan Shareef:

“Do you then think that we created you in jest and that you would not be brought back to us (for an account)?” [Surah Mu`minoon 23 :115]

Our purpose for being sent to this world is definitely not play and amusement.

“We created not the heavens, the earth and all between them, merely in (idle) sport.” [Surah Ad-Dukhaan 44:38]

However, Allah Ta’ala and His Rasul (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) do not deprive us of enjoyment and entertainment. The Shari’ah and the Sunnah accommodate and give guidance for a Muslim with regards to Halaal, permissible entertainment, humuor, laughter, play and relaxation. However, there is certainly no scope for events that feature Haraam indulgences.

Moreover, deliberate and planned sins do not feature in a Muslim’s life.

The reality of the “World Cup” and other national and International sporting events, is that they are a dangerous fusion of major sins.

And when sins increase and multiply then we invite a punishment in proportion to that disobedience. …Haven’t we taken lesson from Tsunamis, Gale-force winds, Hurricanes and Earthquakes that left nothing but devastation in their wake? Are we immune to such disaster? Are we safe from punishment?

It is reported that once Amr Ibn Absa (R.A) asked Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) which Hijrat (migration) is the best and he said: “That you leave what your Lord dislikes.”

One of our great Scholars had said very aptly: “It baffles me to see a people who are advised to get their provision and are called upon that the departure time is due, yet they sit down playing.”

Our boarding passes were given to us the moment we entered this world … and that boarding pass is for boarding the flight of death. We have been informed and advised of the long journey ahead and the much needed provision for the journey – but how strange, that we choose to while away our time and accumulate nothing for what lies ahead.

As has been said: “The knife is being sharpened, and the oven is being heated up, yet the ram is still eating the fodder.”

The knife of death has been sharpened, our graves have been selected and are waiting for us to take residence in them. …Despite knowing this, we “graze” complacently in disobedience – unconcerned that that knife is ready to strike us at any time.

Allah Ta’ala states :

“O People of Imaan! Save yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is men and stones…” [Surah At-Tahreem 66 : 6]

“Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Apostle, and the (fellowship of) Believers, – those who establish regular prayers, and regular charity, and they bow down humbly (in worship).

As for those who turn (for friendship) to Allah, His Rasul and the (fellowship of) Believers – it is the fellowship of Allah that must certainly triumph.” [Surah Maa`idah 5 : 58/ 59]

Of course, all that has been stated will not go down well with everyone. It is for those who want to be good ambassadors of Islam, pleasing Allah Ta’ala and His Beloved Rasul (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam).

This article is for my own reflection and an invitation to my Muslim brothers and sisters to reflect with an open mind. I make Dua that Allah Ta’ala protects me and the Ummah from all fitnah.

MUSLIM PROGRESS

By Mujlisul Ulama

Hakimul Ummat Maulana Ashraf All Thanvi (rahmatullah alayh) explaining the secret of the success and progress of the early Muslims said:

“O Muslims! For progress, study the cause of the progress of Muslims. How did they progress. Don’t look at the progress of the kuffaar. Don’t look at the cause of their progress. Every nation has its own spiritual disposition.

The basis of progress of one nation need not be the cause for progress of another nation. What may be beneficial to one people may not be so for others. In fact, even on an individual basis, it does not follow that something which is beneficial for one person will necessarily be beneficial for another person of even the same community.

Something which may be of benefit to a cultured person of refined disposition will not be beneficial for a rustic or village dweller.

By virtue of Islam you have become refined and of delicate disposition. Hence, what is beneficial for the kuffaar will not necessarily be good for you. Your similitude is like that of headgear (topi). A topi is removed from the head if even a little najaasat (impurity) soils it. On the other hand, shoes are not discarded on account of najaasat.

Allah Ta’ala detests to see you soiled in najaasat (spiritual and physical impurities). If you become soiled in impurities you will be immediately taken to task and punished. On the contrary, the kuffaar are tolerated  regardless of the quantity of najaasat with which they become polluted.

Obedience to the Shariah is the true honour and progress. Walk along the path of the Shariah and you will understand. Insha’Allah, you will then be truly honoured. Be firm on the Deen and all nations will be made subservient to you.”

THE KUFR-HINDU STATE OF BANGLADESH

Although Bangladesh is a 90% majority Muslim country, or is supposed to be so, the shaitaani process of hinduization has been incrementally pursued by the kuffaar governments since the era of Bangladesh’s break from Pakistan. Although there is nothing Islamic about Pakistan and the merger into a single state of West and East Pakistan had not benefited either one of the new Pakistani state from the Islamic perspective, nevertheless, the shaitaani process of hinduization was not pursued.

From Bangladesh comes the following lament:

This question has been in the back of my mind for the past week about how to refute secularism when it clashes with the rulings of Islam, a classic case being an appeal to Muslims for avoiding participating in “Bengali New Year procession” also known as “Pahela baisakh” issued by a non-political religious organization known as “Hefazot-e-Islam” from Bangladesh and how some “secularists” have replied to their fatwa. I will present the details below:

Before putting up the matter, I would like to give a brief introduction of “Hefazot-e-Islam”:

“Hefazot-e-Islam (which means defenders or protectors of Islam), is a non-political religious movement based strictly upon Qur’an and Sunnah. The movement is an offshoot of Qawmi Madrasah Bangladesh.

The movement was founded by the Ameer of Qawmi Madrasah Bangladesh, Shaykhul-Hadeeth Hadhrat Allamah Mufti Ahmad Shafi on the basis of defending Islam, Muslims and Bangladesh from regional and foreign attacks.

Shaykhul-Hadeeth Hadhrat Allamah Mufti Ahmad Shafi is a direct student and Khalifah of Shaykhul-Islam Sayyid Husain Ahmad Madani (rahmatullah alayh).

Besides, the other main purpose of Hefazot-e-Islam is to clear misconceptions on different aspects of Islam. The movement holds yearly gatherings throughout Bangladesh to propagate knowledge of Islam.” (Source: Ulama of Bangladesh webpage)

The following appeal from a member of Hefazot-e-Islam appeared in the Bangladeshi news website Dhaka Tribune on April 14 a day before “Bengali New Year”:

Hefazat: Mongol Shobhajatra is haram

Leaders of the Islamic group Hefazat-e-Islam have said the Mongol Shobhajatra procession observed on the morning of Pohela Boishakh is ‘haram,’ or forbidden in Islam.

Hefazat’s Dhaka unit Vice-President Junaid Al Habib said: “Mongol Shobhajatra is not a Muslim culture. If the government wants to push this on Muslims, the Qwomi madrasas will be forced to take to the streets.”

He was speaking at a protest in front of the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque on Friday. Hefazat organized the protest to condemn the killing of civilians in Afghanistan by NATO forces.

On Thursday, Hefazat Secretary General Junaid Babunagari issued a statement saying: “In the name of celebrating the Bangla new year, observing a procession with animal replicas is against the faith and practices of Muslims.

“Adult men and women wearing indecent clothing and paint on their face and dancing together to the rhythm of drums while carrying giant dolls and animal masks – this Hindu ritual is being forced upon Muslims by the state.”

“This is absolutely forbidden in the eyes of Islam,” he said in the statement.” (End of the article)

Now, in reply to this appeal from the member of Hefazot-e-Islam, the DhakaTribune Editor (name is not mentioned by them) had some words to tell the Ulama, this reply was in opposition to the appeal made by the Ulama of Hefazot-e-Islam. Here is their reply:

Respecting diversity, and not division

Lest we forget, Bangladesh is a secular nation, built on secular principles set forth by the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

One shining example of this are the Pohela Boishakh celebrations, which highlight the multi-ethnic and diverse culture of our country.

Nowhere is this secular spirit more evident than in the iconic Mongol Shobhajatra, which — though relatively recent in its origin — truly epitomizes the unity that exists within the Bangladeshi people, as the procession boasts people from a wide variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds.

But it seems that Hefazat-e-Islam has forgotten our nation’s history, or wishes to rewrite it.

Bangladesh has always prided itself on its diversity and inclusion, and for Hefazat to tarnish this legacy by proclaiming that the Mongol Shobhajatra is “haram” and “not Muslim culture” is utterly unacceptable.

Even more dangerous and divisive is their tendentious description of the event as “adult men and women wearing indecent clothing” and “dancing together” and their dubbing it a “Hindu ritual forced upon Muslims by the state.”

In the first place: Who has given Hefazat the authority to dictate what is and what is not Muslim culture? How dare they try to impose their narrow, parochial interpretation of Islam on the rest of us?

Second, and more important, their statements are bigoted and objectionable hate speech.

Statements such as theirs have no place in a nation such as ours, statements which serve not only to create religious disharmony among the peace-loving citizens of Bangladesh, but go so far as to threaten violence.

When threats, incitement to violence, and hate directed at a religious community are a crime — and these are all crimes under the penal code — statements such as these cannot be permitted to stand. Those who sow the seeds of discord through this kind of intolerant hate-mongering must be brought to book.

Bangladesh can have zero tolerance for such ugliness.

Pohela Boishakh and even the Mongol Shobhajatra are emblematic of Bangladesh’s rich culture and heritage and to spew such vitriol in their direction cannot be permitted.

Hefazat does not have to like either. But it cannot impose its views on the rest of us, and, most importantly, it cannot be allowed to threaten violence in order to get its way.” (End of the rubbish disgorged by the Dhaka Tribune Editorial)

Maulana Sahib please comment on this Issue and refute such “secularists” who insult the Ulama. (End of the letter from Bangladesh)

OUR COMMENT (By Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai Daamat Barakatuhum):

After the violent break-up of Pakistan, orchestrated by India, Bengal (then East Pakistan) seceded from the federation and took the path of Hinduism albeit subtly and cunningly.

The Awami League which has for the greater part of the post-Pakistan era governed the country is a dedicated anti-Islam, pro-Hindu shaitaani entity determined to abolish Islam and convert Bangladesh into a Hindu state under the guise of secularism.

The kufr government is merely the reflection of the vast majority of Bangladeshis. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Your deeds are your rulers.” Just as today in Najdi Saudi Arabia the current kuffaar regime reflects the kufr of the vast majority of Saudis, so too does the Hindu government in Bangladesh represent the Hindu aspirations of the majority of Bengalis who are masquerading as Muslims.

The Brother in his letter concedes that the vast majority of Bangladeshis participates in the haraam celebrations of kufr and shirk. These are the very people who have installed the Hindu or pro-Hindu government which is in the process of dismantling and extinguishing Islam in Bangladesh. This evil regime has the support of the vast majority of Bangladeshis. Have you ever wondered why Bangladeshis plagued by so many natural disasters – annual floods and hurricanes? This is Allah’s Athaab for the munaafiqeen – the majority of Bangladeshis. The sole cause for natural disasters is gross and flagrant rebellion against Allah Azza Wa Jal. The Qur’aan and Ahaadith confirm this beyond all vestiges of doubt.

The real problem is not the evil kuffaar government. The root problem is the people of Bangladesh. At heart the vast majority is kuffaar, hence they lovingly accept all the kufr and shirk practices of the Hindus justifying these with the putrid, self-deceiving ‘traditional and cultural’ argument which is bereft of Islamic validity.

Tashabbuh bil kuffaar (emulating the kuffaar) is haraam in all spheres of Muslim life. In Bangladesh this Tashabbuh has been adopted in the vilest manner. Like the munaafiq-kaafir, Kemal Attaturk who had abolished even the Qur’aanic script (Arabic) in Turkey, so too has the kaafir Bangladeshi regime abolished the Islamic script of Urdu which in reality is also Arabic, and then substituted it with the script of the Hindu mushrikeen. Hindu religious customs are emulated and adopted with pleasure and believed to be permissible and necessary.

Tens of millions of Bangladeshis are without Imaan although they sport lengthy Muslim names. When in Bangladesh, one gains the impression that one is in a Hindu land. Only when the Athaan is proclaimed from the numerous Musaajid is one reminded of Islam. But in comparison to the irreligiosity reigning in the country, the Islamic community is of little significance and of no importance. As long as there is no metamorphosis in the masses – a transformation from kufr to Imaan – the position will deteriorate further into the abyss of kufr.

The basic cause for all the kufr and shirk in which the population is submerged, is jahaalat. They are almost totally ignorant of Islam. It is on this score that the Ulama have failed. They had abandoned the masses to the devil and his legions, hence the existence of the current situation in which KUFR reigns the country. This is the primary cause of the spread of jahaalat and kufr in all Muslim countries. The Ulama Fraternity is rotten to the core. They are mercenaries manipulating the Deen for worldly pursuits and objectives. The Deen and the Aakhirat just do not feature in their hearts.

The solution is not just to establish Darul Ulooms. The Bangladeshi Ulama are pre-occupied with the endeavour to establish small empires for themselves. The Ulama establish Darul Ulooms and each one is concerned with only his institution without a care for the next one. As long as his institution flourishes, he cannot be concerned with other Deeni institutions and even less with the masses who are incrementally slipping in the abyss of kufr.

The numerous Darul Ulooms in Bangladesh are in reality a drop in the ocean relative to the population. Furthermore, it is not possible nor feasible for the entire populace to become molvis. Secular education minus its kufr paraphernalia which ruins the Imaan of the millions, is necessary for operating a country. In fact, Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) had commented that today’s molvis are incapable of governing a country.

This comment of Hadhrat Thanvi is a simple fact which even simple brains can readily absorb, Secular education stripped of the western fisq, fujoor and kufr attributes and evil environment, is imperative. In this sphere of life the Ulama have miserably failed, hence the kuffaar recognizing this failure swiftly filled the vacuum. Along with their style of secular education came their kufr indoctrination. They fitted the brains of all their Muslim students with kufr straitjackets. Almost all Muslims who acquired secular education in the kufr environment of the west have become agents of Iblees. Thus, every Muslim country is in the grips of kuffaar regimes. This has been the greatest success of the colonial powers.

There is still hope, if the Ulama can only open their eyes, brains and hearts to understand what has happened and what is happening in Bangladesh and elsewhere. They need to put their heads together, sit with other Ulama who have the Ummah of the world at heart and formulate strategies in consonance with the Sunnah to remedy the satanic situation in which Muslim nations are trapped and sliding more and more into the pit of kufr and vice. Sitting together does not imply western style conferences which specialize in merrymaking, eating, waste, non-sensical delivery of papers, and passing of resolutions devoid of Islamic substance, sincerity and life. These stupid western methods are not meant for the Muslimeen.

QUESTIONS

The Bangladeshi Brother, posed the following questions regarding the kufr conflagrations devouring Bangladesh:

Question: The majority of the ignorant Muslims of Bangladesh celebrate this “Bengali New Year” along with the Hindus. When confronted, they respond saying that this is “just a cultural and traditional event”. What does Islam say about a Muslim adopting so-called “cultural and traditional customs”?

Answer: Whilst the answer is quite simple and while genuine Muslims know and accept that this argument of the juhala masses is absolutely baatil, this awareness by the few serves no beneficial purpose for the ignorant masses whose very Imaan has been either extinguished or is on the verge of extinction.

The editor of the Dhaka Tribune is an absolute jaahil, more jaahil than the ignoramus in the street. That is why he has written so much kufr drivel to justify the Hindu kufr which Bangladeshis have accepted with open arms and wholeheartedly.

This condition of kufr which is a great plague in Bangladesh cannot be remedied by taking to the streets as suggested by Hefazat-e-Islam. On the contrary, taking to the streets will be counter-productive. Street protests and demonstrations are the methods of the kuffaar. While there may be some benefit in these methods for the kuffaar, there is only destruction for Muslims in the adoption of kuffaar methodology to solve problems. Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) has said that in Islam we know of only two ways: Struggle or Sabr. The in-between methods of the kuffaar are foreign to us. We do not understand them nor accept them as valid for Muslims.

Today the condition of Muslims is worse than the condition of the Muslims on the occasion of Hudaibiyyah. The Ulama need to formulate strategies in the background silhouette of Hudaibiyyah. Only in this is our success.

Street protests western kuffaar style will bring greater repression and brutality from the Hindu government. The current ‘freedom’ which the Madaaris and other Deeni institutions have in Bangladesh will also be severely curtailed and even proscribed. It is therefore best to work within the confines of this ‘freedom’ with Sabr and with the focus on Allah Azza Wa Jal.

Question: Some Bangladeshi “Muslim” Women wear bindis (a round dot on their forehead) just like Hindus, the excuse again given by them is “cultural and traditional custom without having any belief or purpose like that of Hindus” How should such clash of so-called “traditional customs” and Tashhabuh bil Kuffar factors be explained to them and be refuted?

Answer: Having the Hindu bindi (kufr dot) on the forehead in emulation of the Hindu mushrikeen is obviously kufr. It is just like wearing a crucifix around the neck without believing in the Christian concept of the “crucifixion of Christ”. Regardless of belief, the very adoption of a kaafir religious practice/custom is kufr which expels the Muslim from the fold of Islam. But due to the abject jahaalat of the people who were reared like Hindus by their pro-Hindu parents who were all part of the Hinduization of Bangladesh, they will not understand any Islamic logic.

The only slender hope is in mass publication of educational articles in the Bangladeshi language, and for the Ulama to constantly deliver educational bayaans in the Musaajid and elsewhere without adopting a methodology which would antagonize the shaitaani Hindu regime strangling Bangladesh today. There are other grassroots methods too which the Bangladeshi Ulama should discuss and formulate in consultation with other Ulama of Taqwa and of philanthropic disposition.

Question: Third question which is of a major concern: Whenever the Ulama-e-Haqq raise their voice appealing to Muslims to avoid emulating the customs of other religions, the secularists label their appeals as “Hate-Speech”, “narrow, parochial interpretation of Islam”.

Is the deeming of hindu practices (so-called “traditional practices”) as haraam for Muslims “threats, incitement to violence, and hate directed at a religious community” as the secularist editor of the Dhaka Tribune has averred? How should the Ulama reply to such false slanders to the awaam? Please comment on these issues. Jazakallahu Khayr.

Answer: As mentioned in the previous answer, the Ulama in Bangladesh should not adopt a confrontational stance. The reaction of the western-educated juhala such as the editor of the newspaper being kaafir at heart, will obviously label every teaching of Islam which refutes kufr and shirk to be ‘hate-speech’ and ‘incitement’. Everything of Islam is ‘hate-speech and incitement’ for these human devils. Regarding them, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Verily hatred has gushed forth from their mouths (for you, O Believers!). But what their breasts conceal is worse”.

The robust stance adopted by Hefazat-e-Islam at the public rally outside Baitul Mukarram Musjid was deliberately and wrongly interpreted by the stupid editor as being ‘incitement and hate speech’. Public demonstrations by practising Muslims, especially in an anti-Islam state such as Bangladesh will be deliberately and conveniently proclaimed to be ‘hate speech’ in order to further suppress the Deen and the people of the Deen.

Sometimes discretion is the better part of valour. On the battlefield of Jihad, the need to display valour is imperative. But in the environment in which ordinary Muslims find themselves under the yoke of oppressors who cherish inveterate hatred for Islam and orthodox Muslims, there is a need to adopt greater intelligence and to keep in mind the long term benefits of Sabr.

Ponder over the humiliating conditions of the Treaty of Hudaibiyyah accepted by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and which Allah Ta’ala describes in the Qur’aan Majeed as “A manifest victory”.  The Ulama should consider long term planning for the Imaani interests of the masses whose attachment with Islam dangles on a flimsy thread, and in innumerable cases involving tens of millions of Bangladeshis, Imaan has already been extinguished.

These kuffaar secularists masquerading as ‘Muslims’ deem every teaching of Islam publicly stated by the Ulama to be an imposition on the population. The implication is quite clear. Islam must be banned. Nothing of Islam should be publicly aired. Stating that idolatry is haraam; zina is haraam; same-sex marriages are haraam; homosexuality is haraam; prostitution is haraam; liquor is haraam; adopting the practices of the mushrikeen is haraam, etc., etc. – all of these tenets of Islam if stated in public are regarded by the pro-Hindu so-called secularists as impositions on the population. But the injustices and oppression, the denial of freedom of religion, that is freedom for the Islamic Deen, and the imposition by the kuffaar government of corrupt, haraam and kuffaar concepts on Muslims are not regarded as unjust impositions on the genuine Muslim population. Only Islamic teaching is assailed and branded as imposition on the people. Yet, the Ulama are not imposing on anyone. They are merely stating what Allah Ta’ala and His Rasool (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had proclaimed. The Ulama in Bangladesh and anywhere else do not possess the coercive power to impose the Deen on the population. They only state the Message of Islam as commanded by Allah Ta’ala. In this regard the Qur’aan states: “Upon us is only to deliver the Clear Message.”

Now whether the people accept or reject this Message, is not within the power of the Ulama. The jaahil editor of the stupid paper has spoken stupidly and irrationally. In which way are the Ulama imposing on the population? On the contrary, the so-called ‘secularists’ are imposing their brand of atheism on the people, especially on those who are true Muslims. His claim is both slanderous and devoid of even secular sense.

Furthermore, these anti-Islam, pro-Hindu agents of Iblees are not secularists in the literal sense. While they pretend to be secularists, they are Hindus deep down in their hearts, hence their strong pro-Hindu bias displayed for Muslims who endeavour to follow the Shariat.

Their claim that Bangladesh is a ‘secular’ state is a monstrous canard. Bangladesh is a Hindu state, hence this evil regime leaves no stone unturned in its pernicious plot to extinguish Islam. But, ultimately it will suffer a miserable failure and defeat, Insha-Allah.

In addition to sombre acquittal and intelligent planning, the Ulama and the people of the Deen should turn to Allah Ta’ala with obedience and Dua. Supplicate to Allah Ta’ala to create a gap, a breathing space for Islam to begin flourishing in Bangladesh. Nothing is impossible for Allah Azza Wa Jal. Allah Ta’ala had created such a breathing space for the Turkish Muslims in the form of Erdogan after many decades of brutal kufr imposition. Although Erdogan is not the perfect one, nevertheless he is the best blessing which Allah Ta’ala has granted the Turkish people in the prevailing scenario. He has opened the way for the people of the Deen. The same can happen overnight in Bangladesh. They should make fervent dua constantly and struggle along the Path of the Sunnah. The Qur’aan Majeed says in this regard: “Those who strive in Our path, We shall most certainly guide them along Our paths.”

KIDNAPPING, ROBBERIES AND THE DELUGE OF CRIME

By Mujlisul Ulama

“Fasaad (anarchy/chaos/mayhem) has appeared (rampantly) on the oceans and the land because of the (evil) deeds committed by the hands of people, so that they may taste some of the consequences they have earned. Perhaps (they will heed) and return (to the Path of rectitude).” (Room, Aayat 41)

“Whatever calamity befalls you, it is the consequence of what your hands have earned. And, He (Allah) overlooks (and forgives) much (of your misdeeds).” (As-Shuraa, Aayat 30)

“No calamity befalls except with the permission of Allah.” (At-Taghaabun, Aayat 11)

“….until when the earth displays its splendour, and they (the people) think that they are its masters (of the wealth, plantations, mines, etc.), comes Our Command (of Punishment) during the night or the day, and We transform it (their wealth, etc.) into chaff as if it had not existed yesterday. Thus in this way do We explain Our signs for people who ponder.” (Yunus, Aayat 24)

There has recently been a spate of kidnappings in which very wealthy Muslim businessmen have been taken and held and are being held for exorbitant amounts demanded as ransom by the criminal foreign syndicates operating in the country. The number of robberies on a daily basis no longer is of newsworthy import. It has become a norm in our society. Only when the calamity befalls, does a person realize and understand the horror of it.

The police has hitherto apprehended a number of foreigners who have been operating these syndicates of crime. But this is not our subject of discussion. These syndicates and the robbers are all part of Allah’s Athaab for Muslims. The lifestyle of the Muslim community, especially of the affluent segment, is high treason in terms of the Shariah. Thus, what is happening by way of the affliction of misfortunes and calamities such as kidnappings and robberies are part of the ‘fasaad’ which is mentioned in the Qur’aanic aayat mentioned above. It is also the museebat (calamity) which Muslims are inviting by means of their reckless and flagrant indulgence in fisq and fujoor, and it is also the consequence of failure to discharge obligations, and of the commission of zulm on subordinates, especially employees of the multi-millionaires.

Millions of rands and tens of millions of rands are demanded by the kidnappers for the release of their captives. The police are impotent in such situations, and the relatives are forced to pay the many millions of rands and even millions of dollars demanded by the kidnappers. Refusal is at the peril of the captive being murdered by the ruthless thugs.

When a calamity, especially of this nature where millions of rands have to be forked out to gain the release of the relative, befalls one, the need for introspection is imperative. There has to be sincere and deep soul-searching. It should be remembered that in the Qur’aan Majeed (some aayats have been quoted above), Allah Ta’ala warns us that calamities and misfortunes are the consequence of our own misdeeds. The consequences of our flagrant sin and transgression are fitnah and  fasaad, and kidnappings and robberies are samples of this anarchy and chaos which are afflicting the community.

Generally, the wealthy – the millionaires and the billionaires – are extremely indolent and miserly when they have to pay even their Zakaat. There are families in our community who have to pay Zakaat in millions of rands. But, their hearts become constricted when they realize that so many millions will leave their coffers. This is a shaitaani deception which constrains the multi-millionaires to dole out their Fardh Zakaat in bits and pieces, and in this manner the unpaid Zakaat multiplies over the years without being discharged.

For those who fail to fulfil this Fardh obligation, the Qur’aan warns:“On that Day (when) it (their gold and silver) will be heated in the fire of Jahannam, then their jaws, their sides and their backs will be branded therewith (and it will be said to them): ‘This is what you had hoarded for yourselves, therefore (now) taste what you had hoarded’.” (Taubah, Aayat 35)

Besides the punishment in the Aakhirat, Allah Ta’ala extracts from these mujrimeen (the criminals) who do not fulfil their Zakaat obligation correctly, millions in other ways which bring great grief to them. Fitnah and  Fasaad in the form of calamities, robberies, kidnappings, etc., overtake them.

These extremely wealthy people also display greater regard for such ‘charities’ which according to the Shariah are either haraam or wasteful or ill-conceived. There is one Muslim family which has contributed millions to the kuffaar cricket team of the country. Is this the manner in which to gush down the sewerage drain the Ni’mat and Amaanat of wealth which Allah Ta’ala has bestowed? Just imagine! Whilst millions of Muslim refugees and others are languishing in abject poverty, squalor and starvation, these men of opulence satanically squander millions in kuffaar sport for the sake of filthy name and cheap, stupid fame. They cannot escape Allah’s Apprehension. If they reflect, they will understand the correlation between their shaitaani waste and the calamities which befall them. The relationship between calamity and violation of obligations is not a conundrum for intelligent Muslims.

Furthermore, these wealthy businessmen contribute large amounts to such organizations which dole out to them certificates of appreciation which are then framed and displayed on the office walls of the magnates. Besides this cheap mentality, such ‘charity’ is not valid Sadqah. The motive is riya. It is given for show, and the punishment in the Aakhirat is the Fire of Jahannam besides the worldly punishment which will overtake them.

Another evil of the millionaires and billionaires is to grossly underpay their staff. They are totally unconcerned with the problems and difficulties the workers have in making ends meet. While the rich squander huge amounts on touring, holidaying, mock umrahs and many other unnecessary luxuries, their hearts remain unaffected by the suffering of their workers. In the words of the Qur’aan Majeed, “their hearts are harder than stone.”

It is necessary for the opulent ones to understand that their obligation does not end with payment of Zakaat. It is also Waajib upon them to contribute constructively to the various Sadqah projects of the Deen.  While they do make such contributions, it is not at all commensurate with the wealth Allah Ta’ala has granted them.

It is the duty of the wealthy to seek out the poor and destitute, the widows and orphans in the community and elsewhere and to ensure that they are made comfortable. It is their Waajib obligation to fully support such women who are forced by circumstances to work outside the home. It is not sufficient to dole out some Zakaat and Fitrah to them.  Arrangements should be made to enable them to abandon working in the evil, haraam outside environment where their Hijaab is rudely violated by fussaaq and fujjaar, including their own employers. Food hampers during Ramadhaan is not the solution for this problem. The solution is for the multi-millionaires to spend correctly and generously in the Path of Allah Ta’ala. Occasional hand outs are not the solution. Allah Ta’ala has ordained for us the institution of Zakaat and Sadqah which, if implemented correctly will provide the solution for the suffering of the poor and destitute.

Then comes the evil of fornication which is rife in the business sector, especially with the wealthy. Zina with female staff is a rampant disease. Daily these businessmen commit zina of the variety of forms mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). If a Molvi has to sit in a room alone with a female teaching her the Qur’aan Shareef¸ it will be a scandal in the town. But when these wealthy businessmen sit in their offices alone with kuffaar female representatives dressed scantily or with their female receptionists, etc., then it is acceptable practice in the name of business. They are dwelling in shaitaani deception.

The ni’mat of wealth is also squandered in haraam wedding receptions and other merrymaking functions. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) informed Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu) that on the Day of Qiyaamah there will be questioning for even the dates one consumes. What can now be inferred from the huge amounts which are wasted in haraam functions and in acts of gross transgression, riya and  takabbur? Allah Ta’ala, warning us, says: “Most certainly, on that Day will you be questioned about the bounties.”

In most Muslim cash and carries, pictures of people and animals have become acceptable business practice. Large advertising posters, etc. are displayed all over the stores. Added to this evil is loud music to satanically influence people. But let them be assured that none of these haraam stunts will increase their Rizq. On the contrary, all the barkat is shorn, and in the wake of such evil sin and transgression come the calamities which are incomprehensible to those afflicted with these misfortunes invited by themselves with their flagrant sins of fisq and fujoor.

Of grave importance and cause for the Wrath of Allah Azza Wa Jal is the flagrant indulgence in Riba for which Allah Ta’ala has declared war in the Qur’aan. But, the degree of shaitaani desensitization has made the brains and hearts of these business-people impervious. They have accepted Riba to be an acceptable trade practice. They delude themselves with the deception that they will not be able to acquire their Rizq without indulgence in Riba. This attitude is a display of the atheism hidden deep in their hearts. They are implying that Allah’s promise of Rizq is, Nauthubillaah, not true.

In fact, all of these millionaires, multi-millionaires and billionaires are not pursuing their Rizq. They are goaded on by satanic greed to accumulate and hoard such wealth which will not be able to be depleted by even their great grandchildren. But Allah Ta’ala has His Own ways of extracting and depleting wealth acquired in haraam ways. He afflicts us with such calamities which devour the ill-gotten wealth. Of what benefit are all the millions and hundreds of millions of rands when brothers, sisters, mothers and children are undergoing great suffering all over the earth? This greed, according to the Qur’aan Majeed, will be quenched only by the sand of the grave.

CONCLUSION

When a calamity befalls, then reflect and engage in soul-searching on the following issues:

⚫ Did I pay my Zakaat fully?

⚫ Is any of my Zakaat of previous years lying undischarged in my coffers?

⚫ Are my Lillaah contributions commensurate to my hoards of money?

⚫ How do I pay my staff? Are they able to comfortably make ends meet with the wages I pay them?

⚫ My indulgence in zina- actual fornication with my female staff – with my eyes, ears, limbs, mind and heart?

⚫ My indulgence in Riba?

⚫ The oppression I commit on my staff when I do not consider their human frailties of tiredness, sickness, worry, etc.?

⚫ My squandering of wealth on haraam expenditure – mock umrahs, wedding receptions, kuffaar sport, etc., etc.?

⚫ Did I forget or ignore any of my needy relatives?

⚫ Am I on bad terms with my relatives or other Muslims purely on worldly or nafsaani grounds?

⚫ What are the haraam acts in my business which invite the Wrath of Allah?

⚫ Is my Sadqah motivated by riya (show)? Why do I desire a certificate of appreciation for display in my office for the so-call sadqah I have doled out to a kaafir body or to an unworthy organization such as the NNB jamiat for example?

Remember that when the actual Athaab in the form of calamities strikes, then only dua and ta’weez will not avail. The rot, sin and transgression which have crossed the limits which Allah Ta’ala has allowed, have to be attended to and eliminated. May Allah Ta’ala guide and protect you.

The Hindutva Oppression upon the Muslims of India

An omnious piece of article appearing in the editorial Dalit Voice in the year 1999 seems to be unfolding rapidly in India in present time with radicalists coming into power in that Nation. This piece is presented here in comparison to another recent report which appears in the “ADDENDUM” section of this article that confirms the prediction of the article of Dalit Voice. May Allah protect our Muslim Ummah in every part of the world. Aameen

How to Exterminate Muslims in India??

Dalit Voice, Editorial, May 16-31. 1999

Muslims ruled over Spain from 712 AD to 1492 AD for 780 years, yet today there are no Muslims in Spain though every aspect of Spanish life has a touch of Islam. Spanish language has many Arabic words, its music has an Arabic tone, its culture has more Arabic influence than the European, and proper nouns in Spanish often have the Arabic prefix al. From 1492, when the last bastion of Muslim political strength Grenada fell, the Muslims of Spain were on the decline and its culmination took place after 120 years when the last batch of Muslim die-hards left Spain in 1612. From that year, Islam vanished from the Spanish horizons.

A particular noteworthy point is that during this period of Islamic decline from Spain, the entire civilised world was ruled by Muslims. The Ottoman Turks had conquered Constantinople in 1553, and were ruling the entire Balkan Peninsula, Egypt was ruled by the powerful Mamlukes, Persia was at its political pinnacle under the Abbasid rulers, and India was ruled by the Mughals. Still Islam vanished from Spain and none of these great Muslim armies did anything to protect the Muslims of Spain. How Islam was ejected from Spain had been a subject of keen study by lndia’s Hindu Nazis in the 30s and 40s of this century. They studied this aspect to be copied in India and to counter this possibility, the Muslim leaders also studied this to prevent a repetition of the Spanish methods because Muslims (forming 11.35% of the population as per 1981 census) as lndia’s single largest minorities have become the biggest headache to the upper caste Hindus. But the present-day Muslims are totally ignorant of the history of Islamic decline in Spain and hence of the designs surrounding it.

Through this we intend to shed a little light on this subject so that the thinking section of the Muslims and their sympathisers may do some more research on this subject. As in India, Spanish Muslims had three categories: (i) the descendants of the original Arabs, (ii) descendants of Arab fathers and Spanish mothers and (iii) Christian converts to Islam. Immediately after the fall of Grenada many of the original Arabs to save their lives (not property, as they were not permitted to carry their wealth) left Spain to Tunisia and Morocco; many died on their journey by the attacking Christian hordes. Rest of the original Arabs who opted to live in Spain itself were subsequently branded ‘foreigners” (as in India) and destroyers of Spain. The other category of Muslims viz. the descendants of Muslim fathers and Christian mothers and converts from Christianity opted to live in Spain believing in the declaration of King Ferdinand that complete religious freedom would be guaranteed. (in India also, we are told that Muslims enjoy full religious freedom and minority rights). The attacks by Christian on their lives and property during the earlier years was pardoned as a temporary phenomenon.

Compare it with the development that took place in India after the partition (1947). But these attacks on Muslim life and property in Spain did not abate but continued for about 50 years with lesser intensity in a sporadic manner, just as it is happening in India today. In the earlier years, the Indian Muslims resisted and fought back. There were mini-battles in the streets, but gradually there were one-sided attacks and every time Muslims were the losers. Of late, the Hindu police itself is let loose to kill the Muslims in India.

While the organized Christian groups were committing such massacres, Ferdinand’s Govt, in Spain adopted the policy of eliminating Muslims from the services and adopting the following measures:-

Arabic was removed from administration, schools attached to mosques were debarred from teaching academic and secular subjects like science, history, mathematics and philosophy. Only religious teaching could be imparted, Lessons in history were faked by which the Muslim rule was dubbed as “barbaric.” Contribution of Muslims to the development of Spain was avoided, Muslim houses were made objects of constant searching by police on allegations of arms hoarding and secret meetings, Original Arab Muslims were projected as enemies of Christians and destroyers of Spain.

Christian converts were persuaded to reconvert to Christianity on the ground that their ancestors were forced to become Muslims and as there is no more coercion, they should revert to Christianity.

Muslims who were from Muslim-Christian parentage were branded as bastards and ridiculed and persuaded to revert to Christianity. Marriages performed in the Islamic manner were directed to be registered with the judicial officers. Islamic law was declared illegal. Every method followed in Spain is being experimented in India with better precision and timing.

Thus Muslims in Spain were made objects of ridicule, condemnation and continuous attack. Burning of Muslim houses and shops was encouraged to destroy their economy. Mock ceremonies of reconversion of Muslims to Christianity were held and publicized. In India, Hindu Nazis of all hues-Arya Samaj, Ramakrishna Mission, Vishwa Hindu Parishad etc,. are doing the same. The first two generation of Spanish Muslims adopted passive methods to save their religion by teaching Arabic to their children at home and mosques, and telling them orally about the realities but gradually they lost the zeal. When marriages were ordered to be celebrated only through Govt. agencies, Muslims in early stages performed dual marriages – one with the Govt. authorities and again privately in their homes in the Islamic manner. Gradually the second ceremony was given up as even such a private ceremony was banned.

During this period, Muslim masses gradually fell out of the grips of the Muslim leadership and Muslim elites started flocking to Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt where they were received with sympathy. Poor Muslim masses were left uncared for. This is exactly what is happening in India. The richer, English-educated Muslims are getting Brahminised. They have become imitators of upper caste Hindus as they live not in Muslim localities but in Hindu areas. The poor Muslims (they form 95% of the Muslim population) live in ghettos and being better followers of Islam, they are left high and dry. Hence they are getting killed in all anti-Muslim riots.

The seeds sown in the first half of the century in Spain started yielding results in the second half. There was no political leadership, no organization to protect Muslims and enlightened personalities to save the situation. Religious leaders knowing nothing but Islamic’ theology tried their best to save the situation, but against heavy propaganda by the Govt. agencies, lures and offers to reconverts, ignorance of Islamic values by the masses and sense of inferiority nurtured in the minds of Muslim masses were too big a force to be undone by the theologians. This needed a political leadership and an organization with arms to counter, but there was none. Those who spoke of invoking the help of Muslim powers of Turkey and Egypt were feared and exposed before the authorities (by the Muslims themselves) to be condemned. Without willing fighters, other Muslim powers could not help. Those who had settled in Turkey and Egypt advised the authorities there to desist’ from such a thought as otherwise atrocities on Muslims of Spain would increase. An Ahmed Shah Abdali was needed but there was none. And the Muslim masses joined the “mainstream” of Spanish life and the mullahs finding no job for their preaching gradually left Spain. And the last batch to leave Spain consisted of the diehard mullahs in 1612

In India also the political leadership of the Muslims became a tail of the Hindu parties led by the upper castes. Only the theological leadership like that of Moulana Hasan Ali Nadvi (rahimahullah) has tried to maintain the cultural identity of the Indian Muslims.

This “Spanish experiment” is being tried with greater energy and efficiency in India. Urdu, which is as Islamic in India as Arabic was in Spain, is being eased out. Muslims are voluntarily holding on to madrasas. English-educated richer Muslims are away from the Muslim masses. We saw this at the Tablighe Jamat International conference held in Bangalore (DV, March 15, 1985). They are not going to Muslim countries, but are taking refuge in their psychological and physical seclusion. Any move to organise them to protect the Muslim life and property is branded as communal. Any Muslim flirting, if not supporting the upper castes, is called a “nationalist Muslim”. The gulf between the Muslim masses and educated rich Muslims is widening every day. Mass killing of Muslims is considered something natural by the Muslim leadership itself. Whenever it is raised at international Islamic platforms such actions are called interference in the internal affairs of India. Muslims history is deleted from the syllabus. Names of Muslims who died for India are avoided. A great martyr who died for India like Tippu Sultan is unknown to youngsters, whereas the name of Tantia Tope, who fought not for India but for his pension, and Jhansi Laxmi Bai, who fought for her adopted son’s heirship to the throne, is brought on the lips of every Indian. No Muslim gets awards for his contribution to science, medicine, music, art or gallantry. Even those who fought from the ranks of the ruling Congress Party like Moulana Azad, Kidwai, Syed Mahmood, Humayun Kabir etc. do not have a road or extension named after them. But there are half-a-dozen in the names of each upper caste leaders in our towns and cities. History is being re-written. (“Falsifying Indian History”, DV editorial, April 16, 1985). Muslims are killed daily and their houses and shops burnt. The doors of the Army, police and administration are closed to them. And yet Muslim organizations to protect Islam are coming up like mushrooms. Everybody wants to protect Islam and nobody wants to protect Muslims. We are really worried.

A study of the Ruling Class policies reveals that it has great similarity with the one followed by Ferdinand and Isabelle in Spain. The only difference is that the Hindu upper castes are more sharp and sophisticated because of the limitations imposed in the 20th century by the checks exercisable by the United Nations Human Rights Charter and international public opinion.

The systematic and daily anti-Muslim riots resulting in loss of life and property, and above all the sense of fear in the hearts of every Muslim, elimination of the martial Muslims from the Defence, paramilitary and police forces and brahminising of these forces, closing the doors of appointments in Govt. services and public undertakings, Brahminisation of education and mass.media like radio, TV and advertisement, elimination of Urdu as official language from those areas which form the present day States of Punjab, Haryana, UP, Bihar, parts of Madhya Pradesh, Maharastra, Andhra Pradhesh and Karnataka overnight in 1947-48, gradual closing of Urdu schools are all examples of positive anti-Muslim policies.

On the brahminical psychological warfare side comes the cries of Personal Law amendment, now diluted as common civil code, greatness of the Indian (Hindu) culture, projection of notorious anti-Muslim personalities like “Mahatma” Gandhi, B. G. Tilak, Madan Mohan Malaviya, Veer Savarkar, Lala Laipat Rai as heroes of India to belittle the contribution of Muslims for the development and progress of the country, re-writing of Indian history, describing Muslim professions like beef-selling as a sin and glorifying cow protection policies, introduction of mechanical slaughter of animals to throw out of job butchers, declaration of import and export business carried on by Muslims as smuggling are policies through which vulnerable Indian masses are misguided, resulting in a psychological anti-Muslim bias. Muslim electoral constituencies are divided horizontally and vertically so that they don’t have an effective voting power anywhere and thrusting upon them ultra-secular Muslim leaders who have started worshipping Hindu idols and such scenes being systematically televised. Unfortunately Muslim leaders, who are dejected with the Govt., repose much confidence in Hindu masses and hope to secure their help ignoring the fact that the poor Hindu (Dalit) masses are as much victims of such a propaganda. And as on this day only seeds are being sown. The harvest is yet to come. When the harvest reason comes, what will be harvested in India is repetition of Spain, unless the Muslims resort to counter measures soon.

It is high time the Muslim/ intelligentsia rises to the occasion to undo the repetition of the history of Spain in India. Islam has always been protected by the Muslim masses and not by the classes. Rich Muslims, who are not even 5% of the Muslim population (with minor exceptions) are joining the upper caste exploiters. They may talk of Islam but they have forgotten the fellow Muslims. Please note: religion does not protect its followers, but followers protect the religion. Remember if Islam has to be saved in India, Muslims have to be saved.

UPCOMING GENOCIDE IN INDIA

MUSLIMS TO BE FORCIBLY CONVERTED TO THE RELIGION OF THE COW AND IDOL-WORSHIPPERS AND ALL MUSJIDS TO BE TRANSFORMED INTO COW-WORSHIPPING AND IDOL-WORSHIPPING TEMPLES

[By Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai]

The following report has been taken from the U.K. tabloid, Muslim News:

INDIA A HINDU NATION BY 2024

Surendra Singh, an elected lawmaker of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced that by 2024 India will become an exclusively Hindu nation, and all Muslims who wish to stay in India will have to convert to Hinduism or go in exile. “There are a very few Muslims who are patriotic. Once India becomes a Hindu nation, Muslims who assimilate into our culture (read convert) will stay in India. Those who will not are free to take asylum in any other country” said the Member of the Legislative Assembly of the northern state of Uttar Pradesh from where the BJP last year won a landslide victory and placed a controversial Hindu sadhu (holy man) as its Chief Minister…

For many analysts, India is already a de facto Hindu country and has been so since 2014 when the Modi Government came to power and implemented laws and policies which demoted Muslim and Christian minorities to second-class citizens. The discriminatory policies have emboldened and protected violent anti-Muslim Hindu extremists as evident in the rising numbers of Hate Crimes…

In addition to being demonised as terrorists, traitors and foreigners, Muslims are now dubbed “cow-killers”. The cow is considered sacred among Hindus, particularly in northern India where the BJP continuously win elections. The BJP has been beefing up their cow protection laws in their stronghold states, making cow slaughter illegal and cattle farming dangerous for Muslims. Self-styled cow vigilantes called ‘gaurakshaks’ (‘cow protectors’) roam roads in northern India seeking Muslims with cows, who are assaulted or even killed in the most horrific manner and falsely accused of taking the cow for slaughter.

In 2015 Mohammed Akhlaq became the first reported victim of mob-lynching on the pretext of cow slaughter. The 52-year-old was killed by his neighbours who accused him and his family of eating and storing beef. Forensic tests on the meat showed that it was actually mutton. Since his lynching things have just got from bad to worse with farfetched allegations of him smuggling cattle to Bangladesh, transporting beef, or very simply as in the case of 16-year-old Junaid Khan killed on a train during Ramadan – he is a “beef-eater”.

It is just enough to be a Muslim for vigilantes to kill you and then accuse you of having something to do with the holy cow as the cause of the murder.

IndiaSpend, a non-profit data media portal, collated all cow related mob attacks reported after 2010. They found that 97 percent of attacks occurred after Modi assumed office in May 2017. In the last seven years, there have been a total of 63 cases of violence triggered by ‘cow protection’ of which 20 happened in the first six months of 2017. According to the data released, 28 people were killed and 124 others were injured in the attacks…

Shockingly not a single person has been convicted in any of the reported murder cases, and ironically while most of the accused are often not even arrested as they enjoy the protection of the ruling party victims of violence or their families are all facing court cases accusing them of cow-related offences. The Government offers a barefaced official denial of the scale of hate crimes.

COMMENT (by Mujlisul Ulama)

Commenting on heinous developments in the Ummah of this kind, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that the time will dawn when the kuffaar nations of the world will unite in coalitions to devour the Ummah. In astonishment, a Sahaabi asked:

O Rasulullah! Will this be on account of the paucity of our numbers on that day?” Our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) responded: “On the contrary, you will be innumerable. But you will be ghutha (flotsam/waste matter) just as the flotsam of floodwaters. Most assuredly, Allah will eliminate from the hearts of your enemies fear for you, and He will most assuredly cast wahan in your hearts.” The Sahaabi asked: “What is wahan, O Rasulullah! (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam)?” Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Love of the world and dislike for Maut (death).”

With over 200 million Muslims in this Hindu state of mushrikeen, India has most probably the largest Muslim population in the world. Despite these innumerable numbers of the Ummah, all of them are part of the ghutha mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

It is unintelligent and unproductive, in fact negative, to rail against worshippers and the consumers of cow urine and cow dung for whatever villainy they are conspiring for the Muslims of India. Shaitaan diverts the Muslim focus from the reality of the causes which lead to the consequences of Muslim humiliation, misery and destruction.

While Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Qur’aan Majeed explicitly mention the causes which lead to kuffaar domination over us, shaitaan succeeds to convince Muslims to revile their own shadows and reflections. Thus, Muslims fail to understand what is happening to them and what has caused such destructive occurrences such as portrayed in this article and such as those being played out in Burma, Syria and elsewhere.

Muslims in India by their own actions have hinduized themselves. Just as Muslims in the West have westernized themselves, so too have Muslims in India adopted hindu culture.

Abandonment of Islamic culture, i.e. the Sunnah, has created a vacuum which is being filled by the filthy cult of the cow-worshippers in whose religion the primary cardinal of faith is consuming cow urine and dung and worshipping idols of stone which they manufacture with their own wretched hands.

Just imagine! Over 200 million Muslims, but the entire nation is impotent. This is the meaning of the FLOTSAM-RUBBISH (Ghutha) mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). May Allah Ta’ala have mercy on us.

TABLIGHI JAMAAT SHAITAANI SPLIT

By Mujlisul Ulama

ITS  TWO BELLIGERENT FACTIONS, THE DEBACLE, THE SHAITAANIYAT AND THE SINISTER  PLOTTERS BEHIND THE SCENES

Subsequent to our recent Naseehat for the two mutually hostile Tablighi Jamaat factions, numerous people have written from both factions and by those who are neutral, not affiliated to any of the hostile groups. While all express the desire for the unification of the factions, all are trapped in quandary and confusion. No one knows the solution for the diseases which have culminated in the grievous and ruinous split of the Tabligh Jamaat.

Let it be well understood that the split which is the prelude for the demise of the Tabligh Jamaat, that is the Jamaat which its noble elders had established to revive the Deen among the ignorant masses, will not be healed. On the contrary, the chasm will incrementally widen. The kuffaar plotters lurking in the dark behind the scenes will ensure that the Jamaat is killed off.

It is only naivety of the kind produced by gross jahaalat to fail to understand what is really happening to the Tabligh Jamaat and what the pernicious objective is. Sinister kuffaar forces of the U.S.A., Israel and India are in the conspiracy to destroy this Islamic mass movement. Although the kuffaar element is merely the ostensible worldly cause, the Actual Designer of the crisis which has torn the Jamaat asunder is Allah Azza Wa Jal. The real causes for the humiliating crisis of the Tabligh Jamaat are:

(1) Ghulu’Haraam excesses. The belief that the Tabligh Jamaat is the sole repository of Najaat (Salvation), and that all the other branches of Islamic Tabligh and Da’wat are superfluous and redundant. Stemming from this attitude are the acts of bid’ah innovated by the Jamaat. A detailed exposition of these evils is beyond the scope of this brief Naseehat

(2) Israaf – Colossal waste of the ni’mat of wealth. The israaf of the Easter Ijtimas is unparalleled. They shamelessly waste millions and millions of dollars world-wide on these Ijtimas which have assumed carnival proportions. The steel structure replacing the old style tent, used at the recent Rustenburg ijtima cost R25 million, and it failed to serve the purpose of its procurement. It could not ensure the successful operation of the Ijtima against the pouring torrential rain. It was thus a failure. There is no need for wasting such large sums of money, especially when millions of Muslims are suffering all over the world being the victims of genocide committed by the kuffaar.

With what heart and conscience do they squander like shayaateen so much wealth when the Ummah is ablaze? This shaitaani waste is one of the main causes for the elimination of the barkat from the work of the Jamaat.  

(3) COMMERCIALISATION
That the Ijtimas are commercialised is no secret. The Ijtima in Rustenburg was transformed into a veritable mall by the hundreds of stalls. They are operating the Ijtima in emulation of the Ansaarush Shaitaan souks. Besides the carnival ethos created at the Ijtimah, the monetary objective is of primary importance. Much shenanigans are perpetrated behind the commercial facade of the Tabligh Jamaat.

Raiwand itself has become a mini-state. Innumerable Tablighis are not aware of the seven day coup in 2011 at the Raiwand markaz where Qutbuddin, Haji Abdul Wahhab’s foster/adopted son abortively attempted to stage a coup and to install himself as the Ameer. With a gang of thugs armed with AK assault rifles riding an armoured vehicle, they stormed into the grounds and took control for about a week. However, the Principal of the Darul Uloom at the Markaz together with the students finally managed to disarm and pummel the invaders. Much worse is set to unfold at the Raiwand markaz. The monetary shaitaan is too strong and embedded in Raiwand.
(4) GHEEBAT
The members of the Tabligh Jamaat across the board indulge in gheebat of the worst kind – gheebat of those Ulama who do not participate in their specific Tablighi programmes. Without the slightest fear for Allah Ta’ala and without understanding whose flesh they are devouring with their gheebat, they deride and speak ill of such senior Heirs of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) and Hadhrat Maulana Masihullah (Rahmatullah alayh).

The Mashaaikh said that the flesh of the Ulama is fatal poison – poison for the Imaan of those who indulge in this abomination. Any Aalim who sincerely alerts the Tablighis to their errors, is deemed to be anti-Tabligh, hence gheebat becomes lawful in their math-hab of Ghulu’. The consequence of this evil is nothing other than the Wrath of Allah Ta’ala which we now realize has befallen the Tabligh Jamaat in the form of the Jamaat splitting up into two venomously hostile factions.

(5) GOONDAGERRY
The Tablighis have not hesitated to employ goondagerry (thuggery) to prevent the Tabligh and Deeni projects of others. An Aalim in a village in India had planned to build a Musjid in the village where the people are mostly Tablighis. Fearing the Musjid will not be a Tablighi one, the Tablighi goondas (thugs) threatened to kill the Aalim if he goes ahead to build the Musjid. They caused considerable distress to the Aalim who was constrained to abandon his plans.

While they tolerate the baatil of others, they have no toleration for the Haqq if it goes against their grain. People have written to us from various countries complaining about the goondagerry tactics of the Tablighis. The goondagerry was amply demonstrated by Molvi Sa’d in the villainous acts of thug violence at the Nizaamuddin markaz last year, and also in the Bangladesh markaz this year. The violence was further exported to the U.K. where Molvi Laat succeeded to sow the seeds of dissension which culminated in the Jamaat splitting into two factions over there.

Wherever the Jamaat has split asunder, its members have not hesitated degenerating into vulgar abuse and even violence.   We have been receiving reports from all over the world of this shaitaaniyat of the Tablighi Jamaat. The attitudes which even their seniors display proves that there is no Islaah-e-Nafs in the syllabus of the Jamaat. In fact, their attitude and behaviour confirm that they lack understanding of the meaning of Islaah-e-nafs.

(6) HONOURING FUSSAAQ
An evil tendency of the Tabligh Jamaat is honouring such fussaaq who they believe are crowd-drawers by virtue of being eloquent, glib-tongued orators. Thus it is observed that a chap such as Tariq Jamil who flagrantly violates the Shariah with his haraam indulgences being regarded as among the elders of the Tabligh Jamaat. When a Faasiq is honoured, the Arsh of Allah Azza Wa Jal shudders as is mentioned in the Hadith.

Tariq Jamil’s flagrant dalliance with the Shiahs, cinema characters, indulgence in television, video and photography, and intermingling with females render him a confirmed faasiq. Instead of demoting him and removing him from any type of shura, the Tablighi Jamaat does the exact opposite.

The very same applies to Molvi Ahmed Laat who flagrantly indulges in photography and video. Furthermore, a number of persons have made extremely grave allegation of moral misdemeanours perpetrated by him. Although the Tabligh Jamaat is well aware of these shenanigans, it continues to hold him in high office.

(7) THE WOMEN’S JAMAAT
The women’s jamaat is another evil diversion from Siraatul Mustaqeem. This is an evil haraam accretion in emulation of kuffaar women’s liberation movements. The Tabligh Jamaat has cast tens of thousands of women in roles which Allah Ta’ala never intended for them.

Due to the Ghulu’ the Tabligh Jamaat has gone off the Track of the Sunnah which its original founder had initiated. The arrogance in all ranks of the Tablighis is indicative of the contempt in which they hold those who do not participate in their specific tabligh methodology which was introduced only very recently.   Despite the recent origin of this methodology of Tabligh, they insist stupidly with bigoted intransigence, totally bereft of even a vestige of Shar’i daleel that their specific form of Tabligh is Fardh-e-Ain. This preposterous claim is the evidence for their jahaalat. Those grounded in Ilm will not disgorge such drivel. This arrogance had become a distinctive feature of Tablighis, and we refer to the Tablighis even before the split.  

In accommodation of baatil, they were extremely receptive and co-operative with the people of baatil. But with the Ahl-e-Haqq Ulama, they displayed enmity and arrogance, and indulged in gheebat. The consequences of these evils have now become manifest. It has culminated in the irreparable damage of the unbridgeable split. They are now devouring the flesh of one another. Wala houla wa la quwwata…. 

The satanic process of dissension has been incremental in the aftermath of the split. Instead of sagacity reigning, all the elders in both factions, have been fanning the flames of mutual animosity. Each faction is striving to undermine its opponent. Instead of making endeavours for unification to enable the work of Tabligh to proceed without the shaitaani encumbrance of nafsaaniyat, the polarization of the factions into adversaries is now the policy of both groups. There is no genuine desire in any of the factions for working together as a single Tabligh Jamaat.

Groups consisting of their most senior elders are now making ghasht, and roaming around not for Tabligh of the Kalimah, but for Tabligh of fitnah. They are moving around the globe wasting huge sums of money in travelling, to vindicate their respective positions. But in this evil process, the hatred is fomented and the chasm is becoming wider and wider. It now appears that there is no hope of bridging the gap, leave  alone the issue of unifying the two factions into the single group which had existed prior to Molvi Sa’d’s goondagerry coup in Nizaamuddin.

Instead of vindicating their respective stances, they should meet one another and with Ikhlaas explore avenues for reconciliation. On the contrary, a group comes to a town, arranges a gathering and explains its position. Instead of engaging in Tabligh, they indulge in gheebat. The salient feature of such meetings is gheebat of the adversary. In the name of da’wat and Tabligh, they have now added a new evil chapter of shameless indulgence in gheebat. This new policy has effectively negated the Six points of the Tabligh Jamaat.   The very elimination of Ikhlaas renders all the points meaningless.

Non-Tablighis listening to the hollow calls of “Success of mankind…yaqeen, etc., etc.” stare agape and aghast, in disbelief. Here they speak about ‘success for mankind in the world and in the Hereafter’ whilst they have daggers at the throats of one another! People are no longer attaching importance to these calls which ring hollow and are bereft of Ikhlaas. They are in serious violation of their cardinal article of faith, namely: Ikraamul Muslim (to honour and respect a Muslim). They have substituted this pillar of their faith with Ihaanatul Muslim (to disgrace a Muslim), and their own kind has become the target for this Ihaanat. 

THE SOLUTION
What is the solution for the Tabligh Jamaat?
As far as the leadership crisis is concerned, there is no solution. This evil is set to be perpetuated. There are faceless sinister role players behind the scenes. The entire haraam fiasco is the product of conspiracy. Just as Darul Uloom Deoband and Mazaahirul Uloom Saharanpur had split into two extremely hostile camps for which a solution could not be found, despite very senior Ulama being in these camps, so too, will there be no solution for the Nizaamuddin created split. On the contrary, the enmity and drift-apart will only intensify. 

The leadership fitnah erupted at a peculiar juncture. It did not occur during a leadership exercise. The Jamaat was not in the process of appointing an ameer. While the Jamaat was continuing along its course, Molvi Sa’d initiated the leadership fitnah. There was nothing to trigger this mischief.   This creates the impression that he was for some time planning to stage his coup. Without caring for the appalling consequences in which his evil action would culminate, he was blinded by whatever his objective was, to execute the despicable plot to rent the Jamaat asunder.

A brother writing to us on this issue proposed that the Ulama from South Africa should send a delegation to discuss with Molvi Sa’d to resolve the crisis. This is no solution. Firstly, the molvis in South Africa, the vast majority, are themselves entangled in the mess of this fitnah. Instead of conducting themselves sagaciously with fear for Allah Ta’ala, and with a genuine desire to unify the Nizaamuddin and Raiwand factions, they despicably degenerated into the rut and rot of taking sides, joining this and that faction.

The majority of the Gauteng and Natal molvis joined Raiwand whilst in the Cape it was Molvi Sa’d’s constituency. Instead of resolving the issue, the factions here in South Africa exacerbated it. The flames of the conflagration were fanned further. Thus, there are no Tablighi molvis in South Africa capable of acting the role of the mediator and reconciler. They are all biased and driven along by the nafs.

Secondly and most importantly, Molvi Sa’d has his agenda. He had resorted to real thuggery by engaging goondas to violently take control of the markaz. For the Hindu police to intervene and enter the markaz was all acceptable to him. He also has not shown the slightest vestige of remorse, and he is not in the lease amenable to abandon his haraam usurpation of the markaz property and the amaarate position for which he is unqualified.

Any delegation to discuss with him for the attainment of a resolution which will require him to relinquish the position he has established for himself, will be met with failure.

The nafsaani stakes are too high and from the worldly perspective too lucrative to abandon.

Besides Tablighi molvis there are no such Ulama in South Africa who will be acceptable to Molvi Sa’d. The only slender hope is for the Ulama of Deoband, Saharanpur and of other Darul Ulooms in India to attempt discussions with Molvi Sa’d. Although in our understanding even such a delegation of Ulama will meet with failure, nevertheless, it is worth to initiate the attempt to resolve the dispute.

As far as the issue stands between Raiwand and Nizaamuddin, there is no hope of resolution and solution. However, as far as the factions in South Africa and in all other countries are concerned, a resolution is possible if they can acquit themselves with Ikhlaas and utilize their cognitive abilities to understand the colossal damage they are causing the Ummah by aiding and abetting Raiwand and Nizaamuddin.

The work of Tabligh – methodology of Maulana Ilyaas (Rahmatullah alayh) – has reached almost all places on earth. The work is now well-known and well-established. There is no need for Raiwand and Nizaamuddin to ensure the smooth operation of this Tabligh all over the world. 

For the solution other than Raiwand and Nizaamuddin, the factions should resolve to work on only the Six points. Delete Raiwand and Nizaamuddin from the equation. These two markazes have not only outlived their utility, they are in fact destructive for the universal, smooth and successful functioning of the Tabligh Jamaat. A mighty explosion of the corruption underneath Raiwand is yet to explode. What had occurred in Raiwand in 2011 will be relatively insignificant.

Some Brothers say that while it is possible to work on the basis of only the Six points to which both factions are agreeable, the problem will develop when tashkeel of jamaats is made. Where should the jamaats go? To Raiwand or Nizaamuddin? The solution is to completely forget about Raiwand and Nizaamuddin. The problem lies in these two places. The objective of Tabligh is not to sustain or entrench the hegemony of either of these two markazes. The Maqsood is Da’wat and Tabligh of the Deen, not of the views and interests of Raiwand and Nizaamuddin. They have drifted from the Maqsood.

Another question posed to us is: The Ulama have issued a fatwa on the deviation of a person, confirming that he has deviated from the Straight Path of the Sunnah. That person is Molvi Sa’d. What is the status of those who follow him?

This is the primary argument of the Raiwand faction. For those who are not in Nizaamuddin, this should not be an issue. Molvi  Sa’d’s deviation should not be presented as the excuse for perpetuating the dissension. The work of this Tabligh has a solid mould of Six points. As long as all work within the confines of these Six points is the objective, Molvi Sa’d’s deviation (goomraahi) will be a non-issue. The Ulama can tackle him separately for his deviation. His deviation should not be an obstacle in the path of the Jamaat’s tablighi efforts.

However, if anyone attempts to propagate the deviated ideas and interpretations of Molvi Sa’d, then obviously he will not be a Tablighi in the meaning of the Tabligh Jamaat conception. Such a person should be expelled from within the fold. The safety measure to guard against the infiltration of deviation and un-Islamic concepts is to rigidly adhere to the Usool of the Six points. When the valid principles are violated, it opens the door for fitnah.

The following arguments have been advanced by some of those who support the Raiwand faction. The arguments are reproduced verbatim hereunder:

1) Almost a third of the nizamudinjamaats spoke about the 6 points and seemed correct from the front, however on private visits to individuals they spoke bad about the shura, even made the same statements as Moulana Saad regarding Ambiyaa (Alayhi Salaam). Some went on further and privately to individuals made other statements that Moulana Saad made. These statements started creating a problem in a community where there was no problem. It became very difficult to filter out which of the nizamudinjamaats was problematic, hence a blanket decision on all the jamaats from nizamudin. One mutawalli even stated that how can we accept a group of people who echo their leader’s statements but we not accept their leader (referring to Moulana saad). Furthermore the ideologies and work from the nizamudin camp was not the tabligh we were thought. The impression is given that the work and the effort is the same, to anyone not involved it looks the same, believe me, first hand who dealt with both parties publically and privately, it’s not the same.

Our response:
This is exactly what the Sa’d group says about the shura group. Who do we believe? Both speak convincingly of their stances. In private visits we have found even the Raiwand faction indulging in gheebat. This is not the property exclusively of the Nizaamuddin faction. Both factions, even their seniors, are  actively involved in spreading the culture of gheebat under guise of tabligh.

What is said in private cannot be adequately addressed. Of primary importance is to ensure that in public – in the bayaans, etc. only the Six points are the subject of Tabligh. The members of both factions are guilty of gossiping and backbiting of their former brothers who have overnight become their enemies.

Molvi Sa’d’s misinterpretations and deviations should not be presented as an excuse for perpetuating the factionalism. His impropriety must be addressed by the Ulama, especially the senior Ulama in India. This issue with Sa’d cannot be resolved by factionalism in the Jamaat.

It is a confounded lie to say that the statements made in private by Molvi Sa’d’s followers “started creating a problem”. The deviations of Molvi Sa’d were well aware long before the split. The Majlis had highlighted his errors in several articles. However, the Tablighi Jamaat then made The Majlis its target of gheebat. The current supporters of Raiwand were then not concerned about his deviations. On the contrary, they were agitated and annoyed with The Majlis for the exposure of a grave cancer which others had also begun criticizing. It is dishonest now to justify the split on the basis of Molvi Sa’d’s deviation. The split is the consequence of nafsaaniyat and shaitaaniyat. This evil dissension has erupted on the basis of baatil, not for the sake of the Haqq.

The “blanket ban on all Nizaamuddin groups” enacted by the stupid Tablighi leadership in Natal and Gauteng is the effect of nafsaaniyat.

At no stage in their lives did these molvis ever resort to similar actions on the basis of Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar. They never opened their mouths against the halaalization of carrion by the Carrion Devils. They opted for a deafening silence on the issue of halaalization of riba and haraam photography, television and videos. On the contrary, they condoned these evils. 

With their silence, all of these Tablighi molvis of Natal and Gauteng and elsewhere condoned the adulterous Souks of Ansaarush Shaitaan. Their haraam policy of stupid ‘hikmat’ find all the haraam shenanigans of Reverend Abraham Bham tolerable and even permissible. They have no word of criticism for the acts of fisq and fujoor in which the ulama-e-soo’ fraternity indulges. And all are the supporters of the Tabligh Jamaat.

They never enacted a blanket ban on the khuraafaat and shaitaaniyat of all these evil radios which are agents of Iblees. Now, they suddenly have become paragons of Amr Bil Ma’roof with their gossip against their own flesh and blood. The molvis of both factions are equally guilty of these crimes. They have descended further into evil by contaminating the brains and hearts of their masses with their mutual enmity and destructive ‘tabligh’ of a new shaitaani kind.

The Tablighi molvis are not known for standing out in defence of the Haqq. Compromising with baatil on the basis of their confounded policy of ‘hikmat’ has always been their outstanding feature. This is the lesson they have inherited from the leadership at the top. This evil is well demonstrated in their acceptance of characters such as Tariq Jamil and Molvi Laat into the upper echelons of their leaderless shura set-up which has replaced the Sunnah of Amaarate.

The question by the “one musalli” (mentioned in the above citation) is stupidly vindictive and dishonest. The Tabligh Jamaat has all along throughout its history accepted and accommodated people who echoed the baatil of their leaders without accepting the leaders. Tariq Jamil is a classic example of such acceptance. Despite his dalliance with Shiahs and other evil characters, he has, not only been accepted, but elevated into the upper echelons of the Raiwand shura hierarchy.

The second argument presented for justifying the factionalism is: 

2) Some of the nizamudin jamaats offered bribes to the muezzin (big amounts of money) to give the shura jamaats a difficult time.  

If this is true, it is an effect of the factionalism. It is part of the dirty fight between the two groups, and it will increase and become worse if the factionalism is going to be perpetuated. Sealing the date of the factionalism will terminate such effects of animosity. Anyhow, the alleged ‘bribery’ is lesser in villainy than the culture of gheebat with which both factions are plagued. Furthermore, this crime is the consequence of the Raiwand group fiving the Nizaamuddin a ‘difficult time’ by means of the ‘blanket ban’. The solution for such tit-for-tat shaitaaniyat is not the perpetuation of the split and dissension. 

The third argument proffered by the Brother of the Raiwand group is:

3) After our decision was made, we got threats of assault from the Durban brothers who support nizamudin. Our calls are not recorded but if you need proof, there was a recording of a call making its way on social media late last year of similar threats of violence by a young Mr Norath.

Our response is the same as for No.2, above. This too is a consequence of the factionalism, and sustaining the split is not the solution. The Nizaamuddin faction also makes similar claims against the Raiwand faction. They have explained to us that even guns were displayed to scare them from the Musjids.

The Tablighi brother’s fourth argument is:

4) The nizamudin brothers became very aggressive towards us and even threatened brothers of job losses through their contacts, unless we directly accept their jamaats. Some were even offered money to change our decision. Our musjid was even offered money monthly to change our decision.

The response is the same as above. This type of tactic is old hat among Tablighis. Long before the split, many others from other countries, especially India and Pakistan have written to us complaining of goondagerry tactics to compel compliance with Tablighi Jamaat methodology. If the allegations in the complaint is true, it only reflects what has been injected into the veins of Tablighis by years of ghulu’. Be it as it may, these consequence in the aftermath of the split highlights the urgency of eliminating the factionalism and to work as a single Tablighi Jamaat on the basis of the Six points. With the perpetuation of the factions, the evils will become vastly magnified.

The Tablighi Brother’s fifth argument:  

5) Jamaats from the nizamudin brothers used to just pitch up without routes, prior notification and proper mashura, creating logistical problems as at times we had two jamaats from two different camps with two different ideologies in the musjid. At times we had two jamaats in a week in a small musjid.

The response is the same. This too is a consequence of the split, and it may not be presented as a justification for sustaining the dissension. It must be observed that the claim of publicly propagating two ideologies is incorrect. In public, in the Musaajid where the groups have their bayaan, they do adhere to the Six points. It is a false accusation to claim that the Nizaamuddin faction propagates in its bayaans a different ideology. The brother has failed to outline that ideology. There is no evidence for claiming that they were propagating Molvi Sa’d’s deviation in their public bayaans in the Musaajid.

The Brother’s sixth argument:

6) The social media issues are numerous, attacking the shura including Moulana Ahmed Laat typed by the nizamudin brothers slandering Ulema on the shura side by attributing the messages to them. (I know one Aalim from Johannesburg whose name was attributed to the message, but he didn’t type it. He was in a great deal of distress). I can forward you three of such messages but don’t want to create a bigger problem. It seems as though the nizamudin brothers are using you to fight for them by not giving you correct and full information. They then are using your name on their social media attacks.

Our response is the same. Since the factions have polarized, the tug of war between the factions will continue and gain momentum with passing days. Both factions are utilizing evil and haraam tactics to justify themselves. They are acting with extreme stupidity and without the least fear for Allah Ta’ala and totally oblivious of the damage they are causing to their Cause and to the Deen. Each group is attempting to outclass its adversary. Like politicians they canvass for support and followers. The Haqq and the Aakhirat are not their concerns. Their success is measured by them by the number of people attending their gatherings. Yet they are ignorant of the fact that by Allah Ta’ala numbers are of no importance.

Hadhrat Nooh (Alayhis salaam) had after 950 years of Tabligh and Da’wat managed to gain about 70 or 80 followers. There will be a Nabi to enter Jannat with only three Ummatis; another one with two and a third one with only one. Perhaps there will be a Nabi who will enter Jannat without a single Ummati. They were not unsuccessful in their missions of Da’wat and Tabligh. But the Guide is Allah Azza Wa Jal. He says in the Qur’aan Majeed: “He guides whomever He wills, and He misleads whomever He wills.”   Numbers have no significance in Islam. In fact, the Qur’aan states: “The majority is astray”

As for the “Nizaamuddin brothers using us” (The Majlis) by feeding us false information, this brother’s bias has blinded him to the reality of our stance. In South Africa, The Majlis was the very first entity to expose Molvi Sa’d’s deviation and his goondagerry. We have not shifted from this position as even this current Naseehat will convince all unbiased people who are aghast at the haraam shenanigans of both factions.

In our earlier Naseehat there is nothing to suggest that we are supporting the Nizaamuddin faction. We had merely advised that the ‘blanket ban’ on the Nizaamuddin groups is improper and is designed to perpetuate the dissension. Both groups have reported the shenanigans of each other. The one accuses the other. All are in the same boat of corruption. And, all these shenanigans are the consequences of the factionalism.

Prior to the split, the Tablighi Jamaat would mete out such treatment to non-Tablighis. Now, Allah Ta’ala has created the circumstances for their own misdeeds to boomerang on them. Ghulu’ is an evil shaitaani plot. Iblees entraps Deeni personnel with this snare adorned with ‘deeni’ attire. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed: “Do not commit ghulu’ (excess) in your Deen.” It is ghulu’ which forged the doctrine of trinity, and it is ghulu’ which developed the Qabar Pujaari sect.

The Nizaamuddin group cannot use our name for propagating the views of Molvi Sa’d. They can only rightfully claim that according to us it is not permissible to debar them from the Musaajid as long as they adhere to the Six points. The world is well aware of our stance and our criticism of the ghulu’ of Molvi Sa’d. Furthermore, the local Raiwand faction in Port Elizabeth is using our Musjid as their base. The local Nizaamuddin faction does not even visit our Musjid for Salaat on account of the presence of the Raiwand group. This is indicative of their mutual hatred. They abhor even crossing paths.

The recent Raiwand caction consisting of its seniors used, our Musjid as their base for their mini-ijtima. Whilst in Port Elizabeth, they did not make even an attempt of meeting the other faction nor did the other faction attempt meeting those from Raiwand who just recently were regarded as seniors by them. This is indeed a dismal commentary of the seniors who are supposed to acquit themselves gracefully with sagacity and wisdom, and to try their level best to heal the wounds. 

Our neutrality stands out glittering. It is plain stupidity or silly bias which induces a person to understand that we are supporters of the Nizaamuddin faction.

Our stance has for all time always been the defence of the Haqq. It matters not who comes in the pathway of Haqq, he will clash with us, be it any of the factions of the Tabligh Jamaat or be it even our Darul Uloom Deoband.

The Tablighi Brother’s seventh argument:

7) First hand I can inform you that the zimmidaar brothers from the nizamudin side are not doing much work or making much effort for deen. Very few to no local jamaats have being taken out by them. Some who do come out to spend time are paid to do so. Some have being given free trips to nizamudin and to their programmes as well as to their ijtemas. I felt that this defeats the purpose of own health, wealth and time. It seems that the zimmidaar saaties in the nizamudin camp only make the routes of foreign jamaats, as there is nothing else to do. The local African people are given freebies and are paid to visit them. This is going to create a huge problem in future.

Our response is the same. These alleged deficiencies of the Nizaamuddin group are not valid cause for dissension or for perpetuating the split. These very same people were your saaties before the split. Now they are your enemies. Furthermore, the Nizaamuddin saaties are making the very same allegations about the Raiwand faction. They have personally told us a similar story. All the defects which are now being advertised had existed in the Tabligh Jamaat prior to the lamentable debacle. Dirty linen is now being washed in the public domain in the attempt to score points over the adversary.

Concluding his discourse, the Tablighi Brother who believes himself to be ‘neutral’, says:

These and many other issues are what we are facing in Natal. Bear in mind regarding my history of being neutral. After seeing first hand some of the deceitful things being done by the nizamudin camp, the result being the change of mine and my masjids decision. Again I reiterate that ALL jamaats are accepted in our musjid on condition they are given routes, hidayat bayaan on what to do and are screened from the Shura side.

It is clear from his discourse that this brother lacks understanding of the meaning of neutrality. The condition of being first screened by the Raiwand faction is simply an attempt to establish domination over the Nizaamuddin faction. This will not solve the problem of the dissension and the mutual enmity. The need is to first eliminate the root cause, for only then will a single jamaat be successful. The screening process will be understood by the Nizaamuddin faction as an attempt to impose Raiwand hegemony on them. The need is to eradicate the Raiwand and Nizaamuddin tags. And, this is possible only by deciding to stay away from Raiwand and Nizaamuddin until such time that the situation normalizes. But such normalization remains a remote hope.

A GRAVE ERROR OF THE SENIORS OF THE PAST
A serious lapse committed by the previous elders of the Tabligh Jamaat – all are now in their graves – was their misjudgement of leaving a vacuum. They left the Tabligh Jamaat without an Ameer. In so doing they were in violation of the Sunnah.  

The Sunnah requires even a travelling group of three to have an Ameer. How is it possible and how can it be Islamically permissible to leave such a huge ship as the Tabligh Jamaat to sail rudderless in stormy oceans?  Leaving the Jamaat without an Ameer to pilot this Ship and entrusting the operation to a shura was a terrible mistake.

The shura became emaciated with the demise of its members, and it never occurred to the remaining couple of shura members to immediately fill the vacancies. They woke up from their slumber to resurrect a new shura when it was too late. Sa’d, seeing this vacuum and driven on by whatever is his motivation, be it Hubb-e-Jah or some greater and darker plot engineered by aliens, deemed the time right to put into operation his coup. He succeeded in installing himself as the ameer in Nizaamuddin with the aid of his Mewati and other goondas. 

It is indeed a sad commentary on the integrity of the Jamaatis. Could the elders not find a capable and suitably qualified Aalim for the Amaarate from among the millions of Tablighis all over the world? It is clear that in their own estimate there was not a single Tablighi Aalim qualified for appointing as the Ameer. If they had a suitably qualified man, they would not have ignored the Sunnah requirement. The only conclusion is that they could not find in their ranks a reliable and qualified Aalim for this post.

Be this as it may. The fact remains that they had grievously erred by leaving the post vacant. At least they should have appointed one of their shura members to become the Ameer after the demise of the last Ameer.

CONCLUSION

1)  Molvi Sa’d created the split with his nafs and under direction of Iblees.

2) Raiwand exported the recipe for dissension to all the countries. They miserably failed to proffer sagacious advice.

3) The Tablighis in the foreign countries are perpetuating the split by falling in the trap of factionalism set up by Iblees

We can only make dua and implore Allah Ta’ala to guide the two factions and to bestow to them ikhlaas in which they are sorely deficient.

“Upon us  is only to deliver the Clear Message.” (Qur’aan)

Was-salaam

THE SCREENING PROCESS AND THE BLANKET BAN
The screening of the Tablighi groups and the blanket ban are two diabolical measures which only aggravate the dissension. Instead of breaking the ice between the two factions, these measures serve only a greater polarization. The supporters of Molvi Sa’d obviously understand that they are the target for this humiliating treatment.

There is no need for these measures to ensure that the deviations of Sa’d are not being propagated. The groups supporting him will generally be in such Musaajid in Gauteng and Natal where the Raiwand faction is in control. It is inconceivable that any Tablighi group would in its bayaan in these Musaajid veer from the Six points to give da’wat of Molvi Sa’d’s deviated views pertaining to academic issues. Too many voices will be raised in opposition.

In fact, where the Nizaamuddin faction predominates in the Cape, even there, they do not propagate Sa’d’s deviations in their tablighi bayaans. They adhere to the Six points. We, ourselves are unable to differentiate between the two Tablighi factions when they are conducting their programmes in the Musaajid. Recently there was a Tablighi group from Kashmir in our Musjid in Malabar, Port Elizabeth. Coincidentally there was also another group from Gauteng whose Ameer was Maulana Jeena from Kimberley. However, since both groups had pitched up at about the same time, we understood that they were all one big jamaat. We were not at all aware of the allegiances of the groups. But from Maulana Jeena’s statement that they were from Gauteng we inferred that the entire group was of the Raiwand faction.

After Salaat Maulana Jeena disappeared with his group never to be seen again by us. We wondered why only the Kashmiri brothers remained. There was not a single South African with the Kashmiri group, not even from the Nizaamuddin group. It later transpired that the Kashmiri group was from Nizaamuddin. But the conundrum of the absence of any local Nizaamuddin faction member remained. We managed to figure out the reason for the absence of local members of even the Nizaamuddin faction.

Although Musjidul Fuqara is a ‘free’ Musjid where jamaats from both factions are welcome, it has become the base for the Raiwand faction. This factor satanically prevents the members of the Nizaamuddin faction from coming to the Musjid. Thus, they neither come for Salaat nor render any nusrat of their own foreign members from the Nizaamuddin faction. From this the degree of mutual enmity can be gauged.

The Raiwand faction in Gauteng and Natal should dispense of the two diabolical measures and allow the Nizaamuddin faction free access. It is totally unexpected that they would speak anything out of line of the Six points in their public bayaans in the Musaajid.

It is also advisable, in fact urged, that the members of the one faction should participate in the bayaans of the other faction even if they do not at this stage of the hatred participate in the other programmes. If they participate in the bayaans with Ikhlaas, then InshaAllah, the animosity will gradually be replaced with brotherhood by Allah Ta’ala as is mentioned in the Qur’aan Majeed.

The trustees of Musjids, if they are not affiliated to the Raiwand faction should remain neutral and allow all jamaats. Insha-Allah, the groups on both sides of the fence will adhere to the Six points, and the screening will be obviated.

Both factions should reflect on the Aayaat and Ahaadith which they quote in their bayaans. In the prevailing climate of animosity, their da’wat rings hollow for lack of Ikhlaas. Both groups are the victims of nafsaaniyat.

NASEEHAT

THE QUR’AAN MAJEED SAYS:

“Hold on firmly to the Rope of Allah, all of you, and do not split up. And remember the Ni’mat (of brotherly love) of Allah on you when you were (Mutual) enemies. Then He Created mutual love in your Hearts. Thus by virtue of His Ni’mat (of brotherly love) you Became brothers whilst you were on the brink of the pit of the fire. Then He saved you from it. Thus does Allah explain His signs for you. Perhaps you will attain guidance.” [Aal-e-Imraan, aayat 103]

Members of the Tabligh Jamaat should incumbently contemplate (make muraaqabah) on this gracious Aayat so as to understand the nafsaaniyat currently gripping and convoluting their brains and contaminating their hearts with the pollution of animosity.
