  • رہی بات حنفی ، شافعی ، مالکی اور حنبلی ائمہ کرام کے جہاد پر مبنی اقوال کی تو سیدھی بات یہ ہے کہ ان اقوال کو سمجھنے کے لیے  ان کے اصول کو سمجھنا  از حد ضروری ہے ۔ قتال وجہاد کی تعلیمات تو قرآن وسنت میں بھی ملتی ہے تو کیا آپ قرآن جو کلام اللہ ہے اس پر کریٹیسائز کرنے کی جرات رکھتے ہیں ۔کوئی مومن ایسا نہیں کرے گا۔بلکہ قرآن وسنت کی صحیح معرفت رکھنے والا ان آیات واحادیث پر نظر کرے گا ، ان کے علل واسباب پر غور کرے گا، شرائط وتوجیہات اور جزئیات پر نظر کرتے ہوئے ان کے مقاصد کو سمجھے گا پھر انہیں اپنے اپنے زمانے کے حالات کے تقاضوں کے تحت پرکھے گا اور عین اسی کے مطابق فیصلہ کرے گا جو اس کے زمانے کے لیے بہتر ہو۔ جہلا ء بالخصوص  چند وہابیہ اور دیابنہ اور بعض دیگر  یہ نہیں سمجھتے کہ قرآن وسنت کی تعلیمات ہر زمانے کے لیے ایک معجزہ ہے کہ ہر زمانے کی مصالحت وضروریات اور بہتری کا خیال رکھتی ہے ۔

    حنفی اصول کی روشنی میں ہی حنفی اقوال کو سمجھا جا سکتا ہے ۔جن ائمہ نے اپنے زمانے کے احوال وحوادث پر نظر کرتے ہوئے جہاد وقتال کا فتوی دیا یہ ان کے احوال وحوادث کے پیش نظر تو درست ہو سکتا ہے مگر آج کے اس ماحول میں نظر  اور غور وفکر کی گنجائش رکھتا ہے ۔ اور یہ بات انہی حنفی اصول سے ماخوذ ہے ۔ ان ہی ائمہ کے اصول پر نظر کرنے سے معلوم ہوتا ہے کہ اگر وہ آج کے زمانے میں ہوتے تو وہ بھی داعش جہادی تنظیموں کے خلاف فتوی دیتے ۔۔حیرت ہوتی ہے جب قرآن کا دفاع غیر قرآنی انداز میں کیا جائے ۔تو کیا یہ دفاع ہے یا خود قرآنی تعلیمات کی مخالفت ؟  لیکن یہ دفاعی مہم اس وقت فیل ہو جاتا ہے جب ائمہ کرام کے اقوال کو پڑھتے ہیں ، اور اسے اپنے زمانے پر منبطق کردیں اور یہ سمجھنے کی کوشش نہ کی جائے حنفی فقہ میں بدلتے زمانے کی رعات کا اصول موجود ہے۔لیکن اس کام کو انجام دینے کی اجازت  ہرگز کسی کو نہیں صرف اہل نظر واجتہاد ہی یہ کام انجام دے سکتے ہیں جنہیں ان اصولوں اور اقوال پر مکمل دسترس حاصل ہو۔ کونسا قول راجح ہے کونسا مرجوح ، کونسا قول متروک ہے ، اس کا علم لیے بغیر صرف ان کے اقوال کو پیش کر دینا یہ بھی درست نہیں ۔

    صرف دو تین سو سال پیچھے چلے جائیں دینا کے حالات کا جائزہ لیں ، آج کے حالات کے بالکل مختلف پائیں گے ۔

    باتیں بہت ہیں جنہیں خلوص اور نیک نیتی سے ہی سمجھا سکتا ہے ۔

    دیوبندی مدرسہ میں کیا پڑھایا جاتا ہے مجھے نہیں معلوم لیکن جہاں میں نے تعلیم حاصل کی ہے وہاں یہ سب بتایا جاتا ہے کہ موجودہ صورت حال میں ہرگز جہاد بالقتال کی اجازت نہیں ۔

  • Comment 8- on the usage of zulm in the Quran

    God Almighty says,

    وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّن مَّنَعَ مَسَاجِدَ اللَّـهِ أَن يُذْكَرَ فِيهَا اسْمُهُ وَسَعَىٰ فِي خَرَابِهَا ۚ أُولَـٰئِكَ مَا كَانَ لَهُمْ أَن يَدْخُلُوهَا إِلَّا خَائِفِينَ ۚ لَهُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا خِزْيٌ وَلَهُمْ فِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ ﴿١١٤﴾

    “And who does greater oppression (zulm) than the one who prevents the name of Allah being mentioned in the mosques, and strives for their ruin? It did not befit them to enter the mosques except in fear; for them is disgrace in this world, and a terrible punishment in the Hereafter.” (2:114)

    Many commentators try to specify the mosques mentioned here. According to some, this points out to the Temple in Jerusalem (the Farthest Mosque mentioned in 17:1) and the Kaabah in Makkah, since they are named ‘mosque’ (masjid) in the Quran. Some comment that this verse refers to when at Hudaybiyah the Makkans stopped the Prophet from entering Makkah to pray at the Kaabah in 6H/628 and the Muslim pilgrims agreed to go back to Madinah and return teh following year (see initial verses of Surah 48). Tabari goes on to comment that even the idolaters never tried to destroy the Kaabah, it must refer to the Temple. There are others who give it a general ruling and say that it applies to anyone who prevents people from entering any house of worship (Tafsir Qurtubi). Some say that the term ‘kharab’ (ruin) denotes the idolaters’ action of filling Kaabah with idols and the practice of idolatry. Some Mufassirin mention that Hazrat Abu Bakr had a small mosque in Makkah before Muslims migrated to Madina, a mosque that was later demolished by the Makkans (Tafsir Razi). Some Sufis find out another level of meaning, that is very spiritual, saying that the heart is the “house” of love and knowledge of God (the Kaabah is the House of God) and the one who demolishes it through false desires is the one who has done Zulm.

    Here we find that the Quran describes the act of demolishing houses of worship or preventing the people from entering mosques is an act of Zulm.

  • Comment 7- on the usage of Zulm in the Quran

    Allah Almighty says,  

    فَبَدَّلَ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا قَوْلًا غَيْرَ الَّذِي قِيلَ لَهُمْ فَأَنزَلْنَا عَلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا رِجْزًا مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ بِمَا كَانُوا يَفْسُقُونَ ﴿٥٩ البقرة﴾

    “But those who oppressed (did zulm) substituted a word other than which had been said to them. So We sent down a torment from Heaven upon those who oppressed (did zulm), for the recompense of their disobedience.”

    This verse refers to the event of the Israelites who were commanded to say hittah (‘remove the burden’) and prostrate but rather than doing so, they said hintah (‘wheat’) and entered upon their backsides, in mockery. This is what has been referred to as an act of zulm because they, rather than saying hittah and prostrating (also see 2:58), said hintah.

    Though specific for a certain event, This verse denotes that changing the divine word or command is an act of zulm which will cause torment.

  • Comment 6- The usage of Zulm in the Quran
    The Quran reads,
    وَإِذْ قَالَ مُوسَىٰ لِقَوْمِهِ يَا قَوْمِ إِنَّكُمْ ظَلَمْتُمْ أَنفُسَكُم بِاتِّخَاذِكُمُ الْعِجْلَ فَتُوبُوا إِلَىٰ بَارِئِكُمْ فَاقْتُلُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ ذَٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ عِندَ بَارِئِكُمْ فَتَابَ عَلَيْكُمْ ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿٥٤ البقرة﴾
    “And when Moosa (Moses) said to his people, “O my people! You have oppressed (done zulm against) yourselves by taking the calf (as your deity for worship), therefore turn in repentance to your Creator, therefore kill each other; this is better for you before your Creator”; He therefore accepted your repentance; indeed He only is the Most Acceptor of Repentance, the Most Merciful” (2:54)

  • Comment 5- on the usage of Zulm in the Quran
    God Almighty says,
    وَتِلْكَ حُدُودُ اللَّـهِ ۚ وَمَن يَتَعَدَّ حُدُودَ اللَّـهِ فَقَدْ ظَلَمَ نَفْسَهُ ﴿١ الطلاق﴾
    “And these are the limits [set by] Allah. And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah has certainly oppressed (has done zulm against) himself”. (65:1)
    This verse denotes that transgressing the limits set by Allah is an act of Zulm. The one who transgresses the limits set by Allah does zulm against himself. This means he will be accountable to God on the Day of Judgment and be face punishment.
    The limits set by Allah include all those things which are done in violation against compulsory acts. In another verse, Allah Almighty says, “Do not exceed the limits; and Allah does not like the transgressors” (2:190).
    This command of God Almighty, as per majority of classical Islamic scholars, is Muhkam and not abrogated (mansukh). They use this Divine command to discuss the usual rules of war, such as the prohibition against killing women, children, old people, monks, hermits, the chronically ill and peasants etc.
    Hazrat Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “The phrase “do not exceed the limits” renders “do not kill women, children, old men, or those who offer peace and restrain their hand. If you do that, you will have transgressed against them”. (Jamiul Bayan, vol. 2, p. 110-111, printed at Beirut Darul Ma’rifa)
    The message to be noted here is that transgressing the limits set by Allah is an act of Zulm.

  • I agree with you GGS sahib, “What is important to note in today’s context is that those rights of defence as enshrined in the Quran can’t be misused or misapplied by any claimants of Islam, neither by hypocrites, nor by jihadists, nor by anyone who is funding jihadists to get a chance to repel Islamic faith from the hearts of the non-Jihadist believers”.

  • Hazrat, we need to work on our spiritual leaders or so called Imams to be more vocal and seriously take steps to bring all Muslim on  one platform to love our beloved prophet SAW and his family. Kee wafa toonay Muhammad (SWT) say tou hum tayray hain. Yeh Jahan cheez hey kiya loho qalam tayray hain
    By Masood Ahmad - 12/4/2019 1:24:07 AM



  • Too many are brainwashed by Wahhabism or scared to speak out. They do not even know the basics of Islam. But the silent majority support true Muslims who love Nabi (SAAW). We need to develop non-Wahhabi institutions so that these Muslims can have a voice.

    As long as Wahhabism/Salafism/Deobandism remains a strong force in Muslim societies, intellectual decline, social retardation and spiritual degeneracy will continue.

  • Comment 4- The Day of Judgment Free from Injustice (Zulm)

    The Quran says,

    الْيَوْمَ تُجْزَىٰ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ لَا ظُلْمَ الْيَوْمَ ﴿١٧ غافر﴾

    “This day each soul will be recompensed for what it earned. No one will be oppressed this day; indeed Allah is Swift At Taking Account” (40:17)

    This day refers to the Day of Judgment. Every soul will be recompensed in accord with the good and evil it has done. The same message has been reinforced in other verses such as 3:161, 45:22, and 74:38. No injustice (zulm) will be done that day, in that no good deed will remain unaccounted for, and no one will be punished for something he or she did not do.

    In this vein, there is a Hadith Qudsi. Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Allah Almighty said: O my servants, I have forbidden injustice for myself and I have forbidden it among you, so do not oppress one another. O my servants, all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance from me and I shall guide you. O my servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food from Me and I shall feed you. O my servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing from me and I shall clothe you. O my servants, you sin by night and day and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness from me and I shall forgive you. O my servants, you will not be able to bring harm to me and you will not be able to bring benefit to me. O my servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you, to be as pious as the most pious heart of anyone of you, that would not increase my dominion at all. O my servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you, to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of anyone of you, that would not decrease my dominion at all. O my servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you, to rise up in one place and make a request of me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not diminish what I have any more than a needle would diminish the sea if put into it. O my servants, it is only your deeds that I record for you and then recompense for you. Let he who finds good praise Allah, and let he who finds something else blame no one but himself.” (Sahih Muslim 2577)

  • Comment 3- Divine Forgivness for the act of Zulm on the condition of reformation

    إِلَّا مَنْ ظَلَمَ ثُمَّ بَدَّلَ حُسْنًا بَعْدَ سُوءٍ فَإِنِّي غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ ﴿١١ النمل﴾

    “Except the one who oppresses (does zulm) and then after evil replaces it with virtue – then indeed I am Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful.” (27:11)

    There are the people who do zulm (oppression) but on some occasion they try to reform themselves but they have some sort of depression in their hearts for their evil act. For such people, this verse is an instruction that they should not get depression. Instead they should repent and replace oppression, which is an evil act, with the act of virtue. Here the act of oppression has been referred to as an act of evil, so the act of virtue must include justice. This way those who replace their act of injustice with that of justice which is an act of virtue must know that Allah Almighty is the Most Merciful and Most Forgiving. Another condition here is that their repenetence must be based on sincerity and good intention.

  • Comment 2, Usage of Zulm in the Quran

    قَالَ أَمَّا مَن ظَلَمَ فَسَوْفَ نُعَذِّبُهُ ثُمَّ يُرَدُّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِ فَيُعَذِّبُهُ عَذَابًا نُّكْرًا ﴿٨٧ الكهف﴾

    “He said, “As for one who oppresses (does zulm); we will punish him. Then he will be returned to his Lord, and He will punish him severely”

    This verse is a divine declaration that those who oppress (do zulm) will be subject to severe punishment. The use of the word ‘nukra’ following ‘azab’ in the verse refers to such a severe punishment that has no parrellel in what is known in human life.

    In the next verse (18:88), it is mentioned that the pious and true believers will receive kindly treatment, honour and help in all their matters.

    The promise of divine punishment has been made in this verse for those who do zulm. Zulm, as defined in previous comment, is to remove something from its rightful place. Zulm has several forms (to be discussed later) including persecution against people. However here, according to some Mufassirin, the phrase “As for the one who oppresses (does zulm)” in this context of the verse, refers to those who ascribed partners to God Almighty and persisted in their disbelief, even after the Dhul Qarnayn had called them to the monotheistic belief. The Quran described such act of theirs as an act of Zulm because God is One and He has no partners, so if someone does not believe so, he is the one who removes something from its rightful place. The severe punishment which has been promised in this verse will occur in return for all forms of zulm including those which are done against the people, oppressed, downtrodden and weak.

  • Forms of Zulm in the Quran
    Zulm literally means to remove something from its rightful place. In English it is translated to refer to several meanings, oppression, persecution, injustice, denying rights etc. Presently I am studying and collecting the verses where the term Zulm and its derivatives have been used.  
    وَلَا تُمْسِكُوهُنَّ ضِرَارًا لِّتَعْتَدُوا ۚ وَمَنْ يَفْعَلْ ذَٰلِكَ فَقَدْ ظَلَمَ نَفْسَهُ ﴿٢٣١ البقرة﴾
    “Do not keep women, intending harm, to transgress against them. And whoever does that has certainly oppressed (did zulm against) himself” (2:231)
    This verse declares that the act of harming women is Zulm. The divine command here demands the people to keep away from intention of harming women.

  • Yes yes such things have been happening for years. 
    By GGS - 12/3/2019 12:54:15 AM



  • Irshad Soofi Siddiqui Chishti sahib writes in his book, “We live in times now when most people including molvis and muftis studying in Ulooms and institutions sponsored by petro-dollars don’t know what the truth is anymore. Our books, including classical Islamic texts are being manipulated. Books reprinted i.e. later editions; have things removed from it because the publishing house was purchased by a certain sect (Wahabi/Deobandi/Saudi) that didn’t want those ideas disseminated in the Ummah, so people don’t even realize, that their books are being manipulated. The tradition of Islam is being changed in computers, by being deleted and retype-set.”
    Do you agree with that?

  • وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّ أَرِنِي كَيْفَ تُحْيِي الْمَوْتَىٰ ۖ قَالَ أَوَلَمْ تُؤْمِن ۖ قَالَ بَلَىٰ وَلَـٰكِن لِّيَطْمَئِنَّ قَلْبِي ۖ قَالَ فَخُذْ أَرْبَعَةً مِّنَ الطَّيْرِ فَصُرْهُنَّ إِلَيْكَ ثُمَّ اجْعَلْ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ جَبَلٍ مِّنْهُنَّ جُزْءًا ثُمَّ ادْعُهُنَّ يَأْتِينَكَ سَعْيًا ۚ وَاعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّـهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

    “And when Abraham said, “My Lord, show me how you give life to the dead”. He (Allah) said, “Have you not believed”? He said, “Yes, indeed, but so that my heart may be at peace”. He said, “Take four birds and make them be drawn to you. Then place a piece of them on every mountain. Then call them: they will come to you in haste. And know that Allah is Mighty, Wise” (2:260)

    According to Mufassirin, When Hazrat Abraham saw a scene on a coast where a dead body was being eaten by the sea creatures during high tide, and by the wild animals and birds of prey when the tide was low. This unusual sight brought in him the desire to experience the phenomenon of life and death. Thus he made request to Allah Almighty.  Hazrat Abraham said, “My Lord, show me how you give life to the dead”. Allah Almighty said, ““take four birds and make them be drawn to you. Then place a piece of them on every mountain. Then call them: they will come to you in haste”. In response to this Divine instruction, Hazrat Abraham (peace be upon him) reared a peacock, a rooster, a pigeon and a crow, slaughtered them and cut them into mince, mixed the flesh of the four and placed the meat on four different mountains, keeping their heads (beaks) with him. Then he called them. By permission of Allah, all these limbs flew and joined with their original and their bodies became ready in the air and became alive after the beaks were joined.

    From this verse, it emerges that when the pious servants of Allah request about anything, Allah Almighty fulfils their desire. Although faith in the unseen forms an essential part of our faith, the faith of the prophets can be based on their actual observation.

    We should also take this verse to introspect and develop our spiritual thinking that while doing any piece of work, we must remember, we should do it sincerely. If we are unable to repel our negative thoughts that do not let us do such sincere works, we must remember that God Almighty is the One who has given life to us and it is He Who will resurrect us after death and then we will be accountable to Him for our actions which were done whether with sincerity or hypocrisy.

  • I am a fool because I have wasted a great part of time without remembering (my) Allah Almighty.

    I am a fool because I have wasted my energy in doing other than what takes me closer to Allah Almighty.

    I am a fool because since I wake up and get up in the morning, I forget to think that every work I should do to attain pleasure of Allah Almighty, till I got to bed.

    I am a fool because I easily let my ears hear everything other than what consists of praises and glorification of Allah Almighty.

    I am a fool because I respect all human beings but I forget to remember that I am respecting human beings only for attaining the pleasure of Allah Almighty.

    And above all, I am a fool because I forget to remember the One and Only Lord Who Loves me more than anyone else in the worlds!

  • GM sb, you say, “Any verses that encourage intolerance, hate or violence are not authentic.”

    I could not read your intention behind this statement. However I would like to add my views here.

    For a Muslim to have doubt in the faith of any verses of the Quran is an act of Kufr. So the Muslims will never think of any doubt as such. All verses of the Quran are authentic and the very first verse reads, “There is no place for doubt” (2:1)

    The verses that came down to curb oppression and persecution were a blessing of God Almighty in favour of the oppressed people. 

    This is natural and usual in our days also. Our countries train army; for what? For safety and security of the countries. All countries have respective laws in war-tactics. They have power and everything. The Quran spoke in favour of the oppressed people and allowed them to fight back to defend their basic rights. They fought and they did it rightly.

    What is important to note in today’s context is that those rights of defence as enshrined in the Quran can’t be misused or misapplied by any claimants of Islam, neither by hypocrites, nor by jihadists, nor by anyone who is funding jihadists to get a chance to repel Islamic faith from the hearts of the non-Jihadist believers.

  • أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِي حَاجَّ إِبْرَاهِيمَ فِي رَبِّهِ أَنْ آتَاهُ اللَّـهُ الْمُلْكَ إِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّيَ الَّذِي يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ قَالَ أَنَا أُحْيِي وَأُمِيتُ ۖ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ فَإِنَّ اللَّـهَ يَأْتِي بِالشَّمْسِ مِنَ الْمَشْرِقِ فَأْتِ بِهَا مِنَ الْمَغْرِبِ فَبُهِتَ الَّذِي كَفَرَ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿٢٥٨﴾

    “Did you not see the one who argued with Abraham about His Lord (merely) because Allah had given him kingship? When Abraham said, “My Lord is the one who gives life and causes death”, he said, “I give life and cause death”. Abraham said, “Indeed Allah brings up the sun from the east, so bring it up from the west”. So the disbeliever was overwhelmed by astonishment, and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.” (2:258)

    This verse is about Namrud bin Kanaan who was endowed with kingship. But instead of thanking God Almighty for that kingship, Namrud became arrogant and began to claim for his own Lordship. When Hazrat Abraham called him towards God Almighty, Namrud denied and said, “who is your Lord”. Hazrat Abraham replied to him, saying, “My God is the one who gives life and causes death”. Namrud had a chance to observe that his own life and death is in the power of God Almighty but missed it just because of his arrogance attitude and saving his so-called respect from falling prey to embarrassment among his people. It was misfortune on the part of Namrud and a sign of extreme irrationality and ignorance that he showed.

    Since he was cunning, he hatched a plan. He called two prisoners; and killed one of them and forgave other, saying “I also gives life and cause death”. It was again a display of extreme irrationality and an answer based on cunning. Calling two prisoners, killing one and leaving the other alive is not what is actually meant in the verse “allazi yuhi wa yumeet الذي يحي ويميت”. God Almighty gives life to dead and takes life by capturing soul.

    Hazrat Abramah (peace be upon him) did not let Nimrud feel proud at his question and claim of lordship, saying, it is beyond your capability to give life and leave one alive, but o false claimant of lordship, “can you do a work easier than that?”. Hazrat Abraham said My Lord brings up the sun from the east; can you bring it up from the west? Nimrod was then overwhelmed by astonishment and did not have anything to reply. But since he was insistent upon his Kufr, God Almighty did not guide him.

    Nearly the same argument as between Hazrat Abraham and Nimrod was made later between Hazrat Moses (peace be upon him) and Pharaoh. (79:24/ 2:28)

    From this verse, we should learn that one should not make reply based on cunning way. One should be sincere and honest in one’s approach towards getting Marifat of God and His blessings. Only the sincere people get benefit of their knowledge. Those who are not sincere remain all their life surrounded by multiplex of confusing and corrupt ideas. Such an attitude of these takes them to the station where there is no rest and peace.

    May God Almighty give those who are sincerely looking for guidance, Your guidance and blessings!

  • @Arshad sb, In my opinion, saying that every Madrasa product is a fool falls within the acts of zulm.

    Zulm in broader space of its definition qualifies for something that denies one’s right. For that matter, one will be accountable to God.  

    Good and bad people are everywhere. You choose a general word to label all good and bad people in one category; which my intellectual faculty does not accept.

    Once you wrote an article on your father and proudly expressed about his relation with Abul Hasan Nadwi who too is a Madrasa product. Why did your father have a relation with Nadwi? Can you call him the way you have called all Madrasa products?

    It is not about the issue of tolerance or intolerance but the issue of tazkiya al-qalb that you need.

    Your heart can’t succeed if it is filled with prejudice and negative thoughts.

  • @Arshad sb, what is the proof of this statement, “The term ayat as sayf is derogatory to Quran.”?

    Terrorism must be refuted but not in the way bereft of evidence acceptable to religion and rationality.

    If you are honest and true you do not need to be apologetic for proving Islam, a religion of peace.


    By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi غلام غوث الصديقي - 12/1/2019 9:20:41 PM



  • @Arshad sb,

    Science has not developed to the extent of treating cancer of prejudice. But it can be treated by Tazkiyat al-Qalb. Start doing Mujahada against your negative thoughts, that is, do not let any negative things capture your mind. Fill your mind with beautiful messages of the Quran and Sunnah, not in the way of ‘easy come easy go’ but by spending hours after hours with pure intention of receiving blessings of God Almighty. If you do that, you will find yourself at a place where there is no place for hate and prejudice.  If you are unable to reach this station, it means something that I would not like to share with you.

  • Any verses that encourage intolerance, hate or violence are not authentic.

  • To Dr A Anburaj
    Ctd from last comments
    Hindu traditions
    As I said in my last comment there there common points which is also true for Hindus tradition as well.
    1) Hindu books also have same thing like Abhrhamic tradition coming of God, but it's not widley popular in whole mass as it also a tradition of Questioning everything even God and it's also tradition of experience.
    2) As I said its is tradition of Question everything so any new God rise in Hindu either self declared or chosen by people than after if certain group Of people feel,their Weekness and helpnesses  are  answered and they are having new experience  by this new God than they follow him or her and traction also dies away slowly in coming centuries as Hindu never use sword to glorify their Gods or Paigamber.
    2) Than Question arise than  how Ram, Shiv, Krishna, Mahavir and Buddha are survived, they are Moslty chosen by Mass Hindu themselves and out of all this Ram is unique he can be called as founding father of families of world, his life is virtue and wisdom for all, the Rmayan is inspirational as all brothers of Ram and their wife are extraordinary in their actions which cannot be matched anywhere in other people life in histor Like life of Ram, Bharat, Satrughnau Laxman, Sita, Urmila Mandvi and  Srutkirti.
    As I said people also come in Hindu tradition and declared themselves gods but as their no killing machine involve the cult dies out itself so their are so many gods, but main benefit is their is no so much blood history written on name of Hindus as it has this Unique feature of Questing and rejecting the gods so manipulation does not continue forever like Abrhamic tradition and obviously sword is not used the cult is allowed to die itself.
    So this are carefully crafted coming of God to continue control and manipulate people the only thing Hindus are Lucky they can change to follow if their understanding changes as long as they feel they are not manipulated in new cult.
    Out of all Ram and Rmayan is unique as I said, because it can be followed by Athiest, Muslim or Chrstians, any human who want to have family life. Ramayan also had disturbing fact at the end which tells p humans not to follow, The virtue and wisdom of life of Ram is need of Mordern world were families are falling apart.

  • To Dr A Anburaj. Continue from last comment.
    Keep this three point in mind for both tradition
    1) There will be always helpless and week people in society, 
    2) This helpless and week people will need help and hope for their survive.
    3) There will be always some person rise to manipulate this weakness and helplessness of society and the person who use the old relgious books to prove and establish himself scared are mostly Manipulatior.
    Abrhamic traditions:
    1) First thing to continue any human made rlegion  forever,  it need to give certain date when it going to end, this end date is vague date in future, now this vague date is used for hope and fear both, and obvious for manipulation.
    2) Abrhamic traditions use swords and has killing Machine in itself, so any rise of new paigamber is challenged and killed, very few survives, and succeed 
    Examples of Challanged and survived and able to establish new cult are 
    2A)the mordern world examples are Bahulla and Mirza Gulam Ahmed, otherwise person like , 
    Examples of Challanged and Killed or beaten badly and are not able to establish new cult.
    2b)1979 Mehdi killed in Kabba its
    with the help of French army and weaker hardly know in small village of India named Maomood Ahmad Kahn beaten. I am giving you two link in one Maomood claims Mehdi, Avtar and Jesus whatever he can claim and second link how he changes statement once get beaten by Muslim Mob Lynchers, while Hindus have not even touched him for claiming himself Vishnu Avtar, you will know why Hindus did not even touch him or bit him in when I write about Hindu tradition.
    youtu.be/O70DVT8thDY
    3) The idea itself is conflicting that last paigamber will,come that thoughts are put by the founder  and  same founder ihimslef had put enough commandments by himself on the name of God to kill even new raising paigamber.
    4) This is how the Abrhamic relgion are propgated with keeping future hope  vague date, no one is answerable to this vague date.
    Overall:
    This tradition to continue its hold and keep it  followers numbers in control give hope, this hope is coming of Paigmaber in future.
    So never call coming of prophet is foolish thing it is carefully crafted thing and in Islam it keeps sword and politics for it survival.

  • Yes GGS. Sb every madarsa product believes all others are fools. And expand your outlook instead of teaching people. Give arguments instead of giving advice. Isla does not encourage philosophical hair splitting . It is a practical religion.people from madrasa have a narrow approach to religion and you are not different from them. You can't expect criticism. Give arguments if you can.

  • To Dr A, Anburaj. Creation of Judjment Day is not foolish thing, it's well crafted Dogma to carry any dogma or cult.
    Here are the list of this well crafted dogma Abhahamic relgion has double Game in it, while East Relgions like Hindu version is quite different than Abrhamic relgion.
    What I have understood I will talk both in two different comments one for Abrhamic tradition and one for Hindu tradition.

  • @Arshad sb, reading you gives me the feeling of foolishness. 
    Speak some good words. 
    Expand your mind and think broader. This article of mine will work much better for my objective than treating your short sightedness.

  • One of most foolish superstitious belief propagated by Quran and Bible   is judgement Day.God must have given  amoral code at the time of creation.God did not. moral code has been evolving over the time.Moreover Islam speaks about "Enquiry in the Grave" which is foolish and non-sense.

  • please do not say "it is concluded ..." etc., just say you concluded - IT was not concluded. YOU concluded.
    honesty is the biggest stumbling block of "moderates".
    please do not barter honesty for what your parents planted in your brain.

  • The term ayat as sayf is derogatory to Quran.

  • I had heard about classical music but classical scholar? Can Islam be classical and modern?

  • Refuting jihadi ideology with the help of in Islamic abrogation theory is foolish. It will only help strengthen Abrogation theory. Quran and Hadith do not support such a theory. It is an invention of 2nd century Ulama.
