Muslims Must Be Honest About Qur'an मुसलमानों को कुरान के बारे में ईमानदार होना चाहिए

 

 

तारिक़ फतेह

20 मई, 2014

इस्लामी जिहादी संगठन बोको हराम के द्वारा ईसाई स्कूली छात्राओं को गुलाम बनाये जाने के बाद मुस्लिम बुद्धीजीवी अपना आत्मावलोकन करने के बजाय डैमेज कण्ट्रोल करने में लगे हुए हैं।

टोरंटो स्टार से लेकर दि इंडीपेन्डेंट, लंदन और सीएनएन डॉट काम तक पर मेरे सहधर्मी लेखकों के द्वारा लिखे गये लेख में शरई कानून के किसी भी संदर्भ से बचा गया है जिसमें गैरमुस्लिम महिला युद्धबंदियों को सेक्स के लिए गुलाम बनाने की इजाज़त दी गई है।

दरअसल तथ्य ये है कि पूरे इतिहास में मुस्लिम सेना को इस्लामी कानून के तहत गैर मुस्लिम कैदियों को सेक्स के लिए गुलाम बनाने की इजाज़त दी गई है।

कुरान की सूरे 33 और आयत 50 इस प्रकार है:

"ऐ नबी! हमने तुम्हारे लिए तुम्हारी वो पत्नियों वैध कर दी है जिनके महेर तुम दे चुके हो, और उन स्त्रियों को भी जो तुम्हारी मिल्कियत में आई, जिन्हें अल्लाह ने ग़नीमत के रूप में तुम्हें दी।"

इस मामले पर स्पष्टीकरण मांगने पर सऊदी आलिम ने सेक्स के लिए गुलामी की इजाज़त पर एक फतवा जारी किया।

सऊदी आलिम ने कहा: "इबादत सिर्फ अल्लाह के लिए है, इस्लाम मुसलमानों को चाहे उनकी बीवी या बीवियाँ हों या वो अविवाहित हो गुलाम औरतों से संभोग करने की इजाज़त देता है........ हमारे पैगम्बर सल्लल्लाहू अलैहि वसल्लम ने भी ऐसा किया था और जैसा सहाबा और विद्वानों ने भी किया था।"

आठवीं शताब्दी में जब अरबी सेना ने हिंदुस्तान पर हमला किया तो वो वापसी में हज़ारों महिलाओं को गुलामों के रूप में दमिश्क में खलीफा वलीद के पास ले गए जिन्होंने नए उभरते अरब कुलीन वर्ग के बीच इन गुलाम महिलाओं को उपहार के रूप में बाँट दिया।

नौवीं सदी के फारसी इतिहासकार अलबलाज़री अपनी किताब The Origins of the Islamic State में लिखते हैं कि जब अरब जनरल मोहम्मद बिन क़ासिम ने 711 ई. में भारत पर हमला किया तो गैर मुस्लिम कैदियों को मौत या गुलामी में से किसी एक को चुनने का विकल्प दिया गया था।

रूर शहर में साठ हज़ार कैदियों को गुलाम बनाया गया था जिनमें से "तीस महिलाएं शाही परिवार" की थीं और लूट का पांचवा हिस्सा और गुलाम खलीफा के खजाने में जमा कराने के लिए दमिश्क भेज दिया गया था और शेष को "इस्लामी सेना" के बीच बाँट दिया गया।

उन्नीसवीं सदी के भारतीय इस्लामी विद्वान अब्दुल्ला यूसुफ अली जिनका क़ुरान का अनुवाद बहुत प्रामाणिक माना जाता है उन्होंने उपरोक्त उल्लिखित कुरानी आयत पर फुट नोट (हाशिया) लगाते हुए ईमानदारी दिखाने की हिम्मत की: "अब ये मामला पैदा नहीं होता क्योंकि हालात और युद्ध की घटनाएं परिवर्तित हो गयी हैं और अंतर्राष्ट्रीय समझौते के द्वारा गुलामी को समाप्त कर दिया गया है।"

लेकिन आज मुसलमानों में हक़ीकत का सामना करने की हिम्मत बहुत कम है। मैंने दि टोरंटो स्टार और दि इंडिपेंडेन्ट के  क़ालम लिखने वालों से सवाल किया कि उन्होंने उस क़ुरानी आयत पर चर्चा क्यों नहीं किया जो मुसलमानों को गुलाम  रखने की इजाज़त देता है। उन्होंने इसका कोई जवाब नहीं दिया।

मैंने एक महिला को लिखा जिसने सीएनएन की क्रिस्टीना अमनपोर को ये बताया था कि ''बोको हराम को इस्लाम की समझ नहीं है।'' मैंने उस महिला से पूछा कि उसने शरई कानून के बारे में बात क्यों नहीं की, जो मुसलमानों को गैरमुस्लिम महिलाओं को सेक्स के लिए गुलाम बनाने की इजाज़त देता है। इस महिला ने भी कोई जवाब नहीं दिया।

आज हम मुसलमान इस समस्या में उलझ गये हैं। अगर अरबी जनरल मोहम्मद बिन कासिम आठवीं शताब्दी में भारतीय गैरमुस्लिम महिलाओं को गुलाम बनाने के लिए हमारा हीरो है तो फिर आज नाइजीरिया में वैसा ही काम करने के लिए बोकोहराम को गलत कैसे ठहराया जा सकता है?

आज हम सभी मुसलमानों को अब्दुल्ला यूसुफ अली की आवाज़ को ये कहते हुए बुलंद करने की ज़रूरत है कि ''सातवीं शताब्दी में जिस चीज़ की इजाज़त दी गयी थी वो इक्कीसवीं सदी में लागू नहीं हो सकती है।" लेकिन अफसोस की बात है कि न तो ईमानदारी और न ही हिम्मत आसानी से आती है।

  • Sultan Shahin Saheb,

     

    As-Salaam Alay-Kum

     

    Mr. Observer / Naseer Ahmed Saheb has long been on your forum contributing his respective opinions on various subjects. Granted that some of his valued comments are noteworthy, but only after glancing at certain rebuttals of yesteryear, I can safely conclude that no readers have yet been able to pinpoint the real identity of Naseer Ahmed Saheb.

     

    What truly surprised the hell out of me was when wise man like Ghulam Mohiyuddin gave Naseer Saheb a pass by stating that he has the “Freedom Of Speech” to speak out. Yes, he does, but he also has a moral obligation to reveal his belief if he poses himself as a pious Islamic scholar. Why do “Moderate Muslims” continue to show weakness in our character by not at least trying earnestly to question an Islamic scholar in a blunt manner? The problem is that, we have become intellectually dishonest and have been living in the twilight zone for quite a long time. To be quite candid, with such mindset, we will create more so-called “Islamophobes” who will continue to question our intelligence.      

    I have a good hunch that he is a follower of Ibn Tamiyyah and Sayyid Qutb. Though he has intentionally avoided making any comments on Maulana Maududi, and as such, I feel that he is definitely a follower of “Political Islam.Simply look at how he skilfully dodges the questions and use abusive language when Muslim like me try to flush his mind out. Of course, one should expect him to be furious. I bet that if he was in the battlefield with his fellow Jihadists, he will not hesitate a bit to order his comrades in arms to kill any Muslims if they do not follow those revered Islamic scholars who has brought nothing but calamity to the Muslim Ummah.

     

    In fact, I deeply suspected his character when he went out of his way to endlessly defend “Tablighi Jamaat without even making a sincere attempt to view all sides of opinions. He will continue do so till his last breath. Now the hard question is, “What is he really contributing to New Age Islam forum?” That’s a million dollar question for you, owing to the ground reality that you are the owner and editor of the forum. Simply put, you have an intellectual “Jihadist” who is busy trying to divert and distract anything that can help contribute to finding solutions to the scourge of terrorism in the Islamic world.

     

    Very respectfully yours,

  • Ghulam Mohiyuddin Saheb’s response to Naseer Ahmed Saheb – 12/12/2012

     

    Naseer Sb, Your study of philosophy, psychology etc is laudable. I am not sure however whether your use of that knowledge in discussing Islam enhances our insight or deepens our understanding of the subject. But if your approach is meaningful and satisfying to you, by all means continue with it. I summarized my simple thoughts when I said, "It seems both Muslims and ex-Muslims have nothing better to do than carry on useless arguments over what was written a thousand years ago! Don't we have any positive agenda for now? What do we have to do now in order to become better individuals and better communities? Can't we use our common sense and our folk wisdom to address the problems of violence, internecine bickerings and obnoxious self-righteousness? Can't we move forwards instead of going around in circles?"

  • Hats Off’s response to Naseer Ahmed Saheb – 11/29/2012

     

    mr naseer ahmed should try applying his theory to boko haraam, th indonesian ji, the european sharia for britain/denmark etc, the uighyurs in china, to test his theory that religion has nothing whatever to do with jihad, apostasy murders, kidnapped conversions, blasphemy orgies, women tracked like fugitives, the taliban clearly telling mr rehman malik that he can shove his peace proposal and that specifically they are dead against western education and secular government (not my words), the no-go areas of malmo, paris, marseilles, the saudi fatwas on faking friendship with kafisrs, and the list could go on and on. like it has already gone on and on. but like it is said none is as blind as on who will not see. the taliban, the muslim brotherhood, the hizb-ut-tharir and let and jud and just about every muslim sect with guns to hire, bombs to assemble, strangers to kill keep telling us very very loudly (but it sounds not loud enough for mr naseer ahmed to hear) that they are doing it to keep their religion pure and to go back to the koran and the sunnah. but mr naseer ahmed is a hard man to convince. not all the islamic suicide bombers can convince him about what they believe and why they do it. tragedy. denial is not a river in egypt.

  • Sultan Shahin Shaheb’s response to Naseer Ahmed Saheb – 11/22/2012

     

    Naseer Saheb, I do not see how the US government is involved in Taliban or other Jihadis belonging to various strands of the Wahhabi ideology, the official religion and chief export of Saudi Arabia, killing Muslims praying at mosques and Sufi shrines, children going to schools, destroying shrines and girls schools, calling us all infidels and prescribing our punishment as beheading. 

     

    To the extent, the US protects Saudi Arabia, yes it is culpable. Since it is continuing to do that even after 9/11 in which 16 out of 19 terrorists were Saudis and 3 Egyptians, all schooled in Salafi Wahhabi ideology, it’s behaviour is incomprehensible, except perhaps that its need for oil is so paramount that it doesn’t mind endangering its own and world’s security. But American perception of how best to serve and protect its own interests is not for us to decide. We can criticise, of course, as we keep doing. Practically every time I mention the  Saudi regime, I remind my readers that is protected by the US. But beyond this, how can we blame the US for Kharjiiism, Ibn-e-Taimiiism, Wahhabism, Jihadism, Ahl-e-Hadeesism, Salafism, Deobandism, etc. These are our pathologies. We will have to look within to find a cure.  We need to reach our own people and ask them to stay away from extremist and intolerant, exclusivist ideas of some of our sects. New Age Islam cannot be in the business of lobbying with the US what policies it should adopt to run its own economy or polity.  Our issue is developing a correct understanding of our own ideology and interpretation of Islamic tenets. Geopolitics is not our subject and certainly not the subject of this thread.

     

    There are hundreds of pages in New Age Islam criticising America. You are free to abuse America to your heart’s content. You can write a full-fledged article condemning American geopolitics and giving it advice. I will carry that. You consider America an enemy of Islam, so America is doing what enemies should do. What is there to complain?  One has complaints and grievances against one’s own people, not those one considers an enemy. America is not an Islamic republic with a Wahhabi ideology that it is exporting and creating Jihadis. It may have and may still be supporting Jihadis for its own geopolitical reasons, but that is entirely its own business. We can analyse, criticise, condemn but not complain or advise. You complain against and advise your own people.

     

    Bringing in America’s role in world affairs in an ideological Islam-related debate is merely a red herring. Since you consistently keep doing that on all pages engaged in ideological debates, one cannot help feeling you are deliberately trying to disrupt the debate and protect Jihadis.  Your reverence for these terrorists is evident from your use of the term “Mujahedeen” for them. You don’t even put that within inverted commas or use a qualifying term like so-called. No, for you they are Mujahedeen engaged in Islamic Jihad, Jihad in the way of Allah, as ordained in the Quran. Hence your reverence. Of course, at the same time you also agree that there can be no Jihad without the declaration of Jihad by a legitimate government. How are these people then engaged in Jihad and how do they become “Mujahedeen.”

     

    You ask for solutions. Your solution is: lobby with America to adopt good policies. My solution is: stay away from extremist, intolerant, exclusivist, supremacist interpretations of Islam. Adopt tolerant, peaceful, inclusivist, loving, interpretations of Islam which are available in plenty in the teaching of our great and revered Sufi saints who introduced Islam to our forefathers and because of whom we in South and East Asia are Muslims. Let us keep the debate here within its ideological ambit.

  • Naseer Ahmed Saheb response to Sultan Shahin Saheb – 11/4/2012

     

    How can then the Muslims fight the menace of Terrorism ?

     

    They can make it known to every Muslim that acts of terrorism are only helping the US and no one else. The US and the Great Britain are not at all worried about "islamic terrorism" since the incidence of Islamic terrorism results in less number of deaths than number of people dying falling from the stairs or less than 0.1% of deaths due to road accidents.  So all of their efforts do not amount to much. Moreover, such acts are unislamic and the perpetrators are destined for hell. If they eschew terrorism, the US will be left without a reason for waging the war on Islam and they would achieve their objective without a fight. Unknown to themselves, while they believe that they are waging jehad, they are actually working for the enemy. They should not therefore fall into the snare of Satan.

     

    How do we reclaim those that have taken the wrong paths?

     

    Why do people treat the Afghan Mujahideens as some kind of alien from space who are beyond understanding and beyond redemption? Is the solution really to nuke Afghanistan and Pakistan? A Mujahid with a gun is a psychopath on the loose. It does not matter whether he is Islamic, Christian or Jew. The US army's selection process carefully filters out white supremacists because experience has taught them that military training turns them into uncontrollable monsters. The Muslim countries have however done just the opposite. They set up madarsas to indoctinate young minds with hate ideology promising them heaven in the hereafter.

     

    The US invasion of Afghanistan has solved nothing except Talibanizing Pakistan. So much for military solutions! Pakistan and Afghanistan are incapable of solving the problem on their own. They need huge funds. The only way to put the devil back into the bottle is to bring all the Mujahideen under tight control. They will have to be employed and re trained for constructive activity and exposed to a peaceful ideology. There are no short cuts. Else the region will continue to bleed.

     

    Was the Prophet (pbuh) indiscriminate in war

     

    Shahin Sb, the Prophet (PBUH) was never indiscriminate even in war. The general amnesty after the fall of Mecca to the Muslims was to avoid bloodshed. Surah 9 (Taubah) restored order avoiding bloodshed. The verse 5 which you are now citing gave permission to fight and kill the infidels belonging to specific tribes only and not all infidels. Moreover, this verse was a warning to such tribes to either accept Islam or leave Mecca. Without this verse, it was certain that these tribes which were responsible for practising the most horrendous atrocities on Muslims would have continued to misbehave and the Muslims would have been hard pressed to restrain themselves. A blood orgy was therefore certain. Revelation of the verse and its proclamation in Mecca by Hazrat Ali (RA) was to warn such tribes so that they could save themselves. The verse was never given effect to as far as I know and my several posts in this forum on the subject did not elicit a different view.  Surah Taubah therefore, by intent and outcome (since the outcome was known to Allah), turned out to be one of the most merciful Surahs. Your interpretation unfortunately, coincides with that of the extremists and the Islamophobes!

    Taliban Releases U.S. Soldier Held for Five Years

    The Taliban Saturday released U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, taken hostage in 2009, to U.S. Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan in exchange for the transfer of five Afghan Taliban prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay prison to Qatar, U.S. officials said.

    Sgt. Bergdahl, who was the only American prisoner of war, was captured nearly five years ago near his base in Afghanistan, and the U.S. has conducted on-again, off-again talks with the Taliban in hopes of securing his release.

    Well, well, well ……….

     

    Mr. Observer / Naseer Ahmed Saheb what do you have to say now? Can you enlighten the readers on hostage taking by the brutal murderers who believe that they are following the Sunnah of Prophet of Islam?

     

    Low life Talibans are nothing but “Blackmail Artists, let alone being merciless killers. Where did they learn all these evil deeds? Was it State sponsored as you so claim or were they educated at the Islamic Madrassas?

     

    Come on now, Mr. Observer. Try to observe everything and do not be afraid to make you usual comment in your own fashion. Let’s face it, you are the only “Self-Righteousness Islamic Scholar” on the “New Age Islam” forum.

  • Mr. Lodhia,

     

    I signed in after a few days to find that this debate has taken on a robust life of its own, and all participants including dear Mr Observer who I flatter myself has agreed to stay on after I appealed to him to do so are doing a fine job of splitting hairs and continuing to argue their case with spirit. I apologise for not responding to the couple of comments you addressed to me. Frankly, I am quite sick of it now; it is more fun to sit in the sidelines and watch people wrestle futilely with the 'elephant in the room'. As usual, Hats off is the one I am rooting for. :)

    Hello Secular Logic,

     

    Thanks for your kind response. I do not blame you for being sick of this circus that goes on and on and on. Yes, Mr. Observer / Naseer Ahmed Saheb will stay on, but he will dodge all the pertinent questions when it comes to confronting head-on the “Islamic Ideology.“Islamic Scholar in disguise” is what one should refer to rather than “Elephant in the room. Ha, Ha, Ha.  

     

    Have a good day or evening.

    I considered his words to be smears, but I never questioned his right to speak those words or to remain silent.

  • Jihad on Trial

     

    Instead of processing terrorist suspects exclusively through the court system, McCarthy asserted that the "only sensible counterterrorism strategy is a holistic, comprehensive one that brings to bear all of the tools of government." McCarthy's approach would not only include the courts, but also the resources of the U.S. military, various intelligence services, and the Department of the Treasury. Above all else, however, McCarthy felt that it is imperative that the U.S. recognize the central role that Islamist ideology plays in terrorism, and to make this the basis of all future policy.

    Mohiyuddin Saheb,

     

    That’s fine and dandy. Likewise, let Andrew McCarthy speak up too. Why do you call his thoughts as “Smear”? He is speaking his mind and he possess a freedom to do so in the United States of America. He does not use abusive language to silence his critics like the disgruntled Islamic scholar does on “New Age Islam” forum.   

     

    The point I am trying to make is that, if we the Muslims continuously cover up the thoughts of our Ulemas and Scholars on the basis of “Freedom of Speech, then who will confront those who smear the religion of Islam? Any thoughts, Mohiyuddin Saheb?

     

    Sure, let Naseer Ahmed Saheb continue to play and hide and seek with his thoughts. Then, you tell me who is the honest to goodness learned men in the world of Islam to address the sensitive issues? We are swift to call any critics as “Islamophobe, and yet, we will give pass to our scholars to remain silent.   

     

    You were rather quick to raise your concern over Mr. McCarthy, but you have a soft corner for Naseer Saheb. Now, that is not fair or is it?
