Mr Raihan Mahmood Sb: Raihan calls Raihan. Sir, I don't know you personally, but the thoughts you are expressing here, are contrary to mine which I have been possessing and expressing in my life and here on this website as well.
You say, "wahabism is the authentic Islam as practiced by sahabas"
It shows lack of knowledge which has deserted your mind as you are unaware of time of Sahaba Karam (MAllahAWTh) which was free from any sectarian supremacy feelings, no conflict arose among the true followers, they were just, honest, righteous and perfect Muslims who believed in one religion, one group of the Muslims.
First, read about wahabism, know them personally by visiting SA, then form pass over God-like judgment upon authenticity of various sects.
Allah knows better who and what is authentic!
terrorism must be welcomed by all.
People trying to foster universal
brotherhood must be supported by all. However
what Sultan Shaheen is preaching on TV shows and on internet blogs is as
under --- (1) condemnation of quranic
verses by assigning biased prejudiced
interpretation to those verses.
(2) discarding and criticizing Hadees sharif
etc. (3) discarding
divinity of holy Koran
It is true that non muslims
and ex-muslims like Sultan
Shaheen , Tarekh Fateh etc
too have a right to
propagate their ideas.
However their bigoted approach
is harming and
defeating civilized society’s war against extremism .
(1) Accusations of critics against Koran and hadees are correct
but explanations offered by ulemas are wrong.
In case of religious books
religions their verses are
interpret differently .
(2) These critics think that wrongs committed by others are on account of
socio economic factors . like
in myamar Buddhist killing Muslims because of
socio economic factors . west supporting one factions of terrorist
al aqeada in Syria and
. all these on name of nationalism . if
population of Muslims are increasing it is because of faith . if
sex ratio of Muslims in India
better then other communities then it is
because economics and
not faith. in case of
Muslims all there bad actions are
governed by faith. While bad
actions of other communities governed by
economics. These biases and prejudices
are not going to fool any civilized person
neither Muslims nor Non Muslims. New age often highlights pictures and symbols of liberals like Asgar ali engineer
and moulanas like tahirul qadri, wahiuddin khan etc. But none of these
gentleman shared biased and
prejudiced views of sultan shaheen.
(3) why new age islam ignores the role played
by intelligence agencies
and different brands of nationalism behind
terror. Like many
clerics of Turkey living in
west are fomenting terror in
turkey. Afghanistan and Pakistan both are
accusing each other for terror.
No sensible person will ever
ignore dirty role played by such intelligence
agencies in these horrible
(4) The once progressive
, liberal civilized countries
like Syria , Libya , Iraq are now
in rambles . Totally ravaged .
people fleeing as refugees. All this mayhem on the name of “national Interest “ by colonialist
. but perverts like Sultan
Shaheen are always obsessed and
prejudiced with islam bashing.
(5) Mr Shaheen have you read
the book written by Retired IG
of Police Maharashtra
SM Mushfiq published by
pharos media “who killed karkare”. In case if you do not agree with views
of author then try to
write a rejoinder of this book if
Do you know that
hundreds of innocent
Muslim youths falsely
arrested on terror charges by
police and later
on honorably acquitted
by Courts . what to you suggest to these youths. How they should be rehabilited .
(6) There is no
racism or supremacist in islam .
every believer irrespective of
his religion thinks that his or her faith is the best. Nothing wrong in this .
“Why is the Sufi counter-narrative not
effective enough to make a difference?”
Sufi theologians need to do hard work.
They must speak with one voice. The first step to defeating radical Islam is to
understand it. It is a totalitarian ideology based on a theological
interpretation of Islam that sees the faith as political. They should explain
how the Sharia governance work in Saudi Arabia and Iran.
They should understand that the quality of
the fruit in Muslims’ lives – their words, actions, and attitude –depends on
the spiritual nourishment supplied by Sufism – the Mullahs and the Alims.
They should watch whether the Muslims who
walk in step with the Spirit of Allah are marked by “love, joy, peace
forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control”
They should support the work of Muslim
Human Right activists through social media and share their work.
They should also stand up against
They should speak out about radical Islam.
Once Muslims have become educated about the danger posed by radical Islam they
can play the role in spreading the word. Movements do not bring changes
overnight and every person is vital in the greater effort to confront this
“Allah may conceal the purpose of His
ways, but His ways are not without purpose”
