Looking Looking forward to your voluntary contributions & suggestions


From the Editors desk

We present you this first issue of Al-Rashideen. We hope this to be a platform where relevant issues facing the Ummah are studied / analyzed upon by students of colleges and universities, and Muslim youngsters whose first or second language is English. Before going any further, I would pen off with the words of an Iraqi who called on an Egyptian Channel some 3 years ago. Not much has changed vis--vis the Ahlus Sunnah since then. These words echo the current state of affairs in the Muslim World:
O Brothers!!! I am calling from Baghdad I call you O Baghdad what evil has caught you? What was the value of Baghdad? Werent you (O Baghdad) the happiness of eyes? I call you from Iraq! O my dear fellows!! Is there any eye in Egypt who is weeping for Baghdad? I wish I could help the ones who are in sorrow and beating their chest because of being badly tortured Sheikh Hammad thousands of women and men of Ahlus Sunnah have come to me. They have given me the responsibility of a trustworthy thing. They said if people of Islam will be killed and destroyed, then who will help us? Then who will save us from cruelty and torture? Our women are being prisoned. (People of) Ahlus Sunnah are killed.Ahh Respect of Muhammad (PBUH)..Ahhh Religion of Prophet..Beards were being burned, elders were thrown in fire and were burned. The ones who were much old were beaten with hunter lashes on their backs. I was also tortured (because they wanted) that I put lie and curse Mother Aisha R.A. and on my father Abu Bakr R.A. Ahh my father my father..with which face shall I live on this world? They put dirt in my beard. O Ahlus Sunnah save your brothers from these Rafdhis.Ahh Respect of Muhammad (PBUH)..Ahh Respect of Prophet..Ahh helplessness of the Religion of Islam..Our women were kidnapped.Ahh respect and glory of Ahlus Sunnah. They stop us on roads and burn us alive because amongst us are the people with the names Abu Bakr, Umar and Usman and (people) with names of those of the Prophets Sahaba. They said to us that abuse Aisha R.A. for them, when we denied, they cut our fingers.O Sheikh I have delivered the responsibility given to me. O Allah be my witness.I have delivered the Message.I saw a young girl, she was raped..She was saying (By Allah) I was a virgin, Wallahey I was an Hafiza (Memorizer of Quran).Then she screamed and said who will convey the story of my torture to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH)She was saying (Shia) Men have crossed all limits of torture and brutality. The respect of Allahs Messenger was abused O Sheikh listen.I have delivered the story of Shia torture and brutality. The wounds which I got (from Shia) are still fresh because my sons name was Umar and my daughters Aisha..These rafidhis burned my 3 year old child inside an oven and killed him, and then they put the burnt body in front of his old father (me) Oh Allah Be my witness.Oh Allah you are my Lord be my witness Oh people of Islam is there any helper for the MuslimsIs there any Ibn Taimiyya (for help) to stop the hands of the rawafidh

Assalam O Alaikum

2013: What next?

nother year has passed by & on the dawn of 1434 A.H. Taliban are battling with the crusader armies in the rugged terrains of Afghanistan, Chechen guerillas fighting for an Emirate in the Caucasus, Palestinians Bashar,

with stones in hand defying the Israeli Onslaught, Kashmiris protesting against the Indian Militancy, Syrians rising up against the Shiite Nusayri
Ulama getting martyred in the streets of Karachi, Pakistan by Shiite militias. A

cursory look at these conflict areas brings to light the Muslim plight. With meager resources and scarce bullets at their disposal, they are nevertheless acting as a fire-wall against the Judeo-Christian, Hindu & Shiite nexus. Not much has changed vis--vis Muslim fortunes since 1757 when the British entered the Indian Sub-Continent, gained charge and then eventually snatched the Ottoman Caliphate in 1924.Since then, its been a series of unfortunate events starting from Kemalist reforms in Turkey, Israels independence in 1948, little or no Islamization in Pakistan, Break-up of Bangladesh, Russian Invasion of Afghanistan and continuing all the way to the 1979 Shiite heretic revolution in Iran to 2011s Arab Spring. Our debacle & its causes had begun along time ago, but for the sake of brevity lets just not limit ourselves to the American invasion of Afghanistan & Iraq as the setting up the stage for Muslim conflict. We have been under-attack both militarily, ideologically and psychologically since the last 200 years and more so since the last 1 century. Be it Hindu India, Christian USA-Russia, Buddhist & Communist China-BurmaPhilippines, Shiite Iran-Syria, every possible Non-Muslim has stepped in the
Bandwagon Muslim Crusades. Hindu India stepped in since 1948,USA & Russia

were there remotely behind the scenes before, but directly since the 80s,China ,Burma and Philippines hopped in since the late 80s and early 90s,and Iran and Syria have been cruising along since the 70s.

We were analyzing and discussing the withdrawal of NATO & American forces from Afghanistan in 2014, when all of a sudden the Arab Spring comes up and the mass butchery of Muslims is done in Bahrain, Syria aided by their Shiite Master-Patron Iran. We are under attack: there is no denying that. And we are being so right, left & centre. And the reality as espoused in a popular
Hadith that there would be a time when the kuffar would invite each other

(the way we invite people at food) against Muslims is very much visible now. I believe that the only good news in the midst of all this is the rise of
Mujahideen movements & their resilience and courage to move on despite

heavy odds. And what is driving them? One reason is the spirit of Jihad and
Shahadat which is expressedly present in Quran and Sunnah. In the words of






The West can snatch away our territories, kill our women and children,

but they can never extinguish in us the spirit of Jihad and martyrdom as espoused in the Quran and Sunnah
Another reason is the renewing of this Quranic Spirit (of Jihad) by individuals who have time & time again saved the Islamic Tradition from being ignored by the Muslim Masses. When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in the late 70s, it was Abdullah Azzam (A Palestenian alim) who through his speeches and dawah, rallied the support of Muslim youngsters the world over to join the Holy cause in the mountains of Afghanistan. When Serb and Croat Christians aided by US and Russian Petro-dollars started the Muslim carnage in Bosnia, it was Shamil Basayev (Bosnian) and Ameer Khattab (Arab) who led the Muslim resistance. When US and NATO forces were using the tacit help of the Shias of Iran and Iraq, it was Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi (Jordanian) who dampened any hopes of a complete American & Shiite take-over of Iraq for a long time to come. When the Indian Golliath was on the verge of winning the battle of hearts and minds in Kashmir, it was Masud Azhar (A Pakistani alim) who re-ignited the spirit of
Jihad in the hearts of Kashmiris and Mujahideen posted there. When the

Jewish aggressor was getting accustomed to Muslim slumber in Palestine, it was Ahmed Yaseen (A Palestenian alim) who woke the Muslims by forming Hamas. When in the early 80s the Shiite revolution in Iran started being exported via Iranian petro-dollars in Iraq, Pakistan & parts of the Middle-East it was Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi (A Pakistani alim) and his supporters, who stood up to check the Shiite inspired onslaught. All the above-mentioned examples point in one direction: The presence of
Internationalism in Islam. And that has been the case and point of Islams

growth as a world religion. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) was an Arab, among his
Sahaba there were Hazrat Salman from Persia, Sohaib from Rome, Bilal from

Africa and many others. Out of the 144,000 Sahaba thousands are buried outside the Arab Heartland in China, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Russia and scattered the world over. Islam strengthened and grew in Spain, Indian-Sub Continent, Persian Iran and many other regions. Being Muslim does not mean that our loyalties rest within the boundaries of states and nations where we reside. We are one the world over, and the examples highlighted above are enough to prove that. As a relevant example I would quote, Bhutto: Gandhi once observed that if Islam is uprooted from the subcontinent, it

will flourish elsewhere, but if Hinduism is uprooted from the subcontinent, it would be the end of Hinduism. The meaning of the remark was that if Hinduism had to be protected at the cost of uprooting Islam from the subcontinent, there was a justification in it. Is it the aim to prove that, Gandhi indeed was a Mahatma?1
What Bhutto points out is that had Gandhi not clandestinely paved the way for the Break-up of India, and had Muslims & Hindus continue to live together, Islam would have thrived in India at the cost of Hinduism. And he was right, today according to the World Religious Freedom Report 2012, 94% of the worlds Hindus reside in India.

The Road Ahead-Obstacles I By Usman Khan

Whatever that has happened and continues to be happening in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Tunisia, Syria and the likes is resonant to so many revolutions that have taken part in the Muslim world in the 21st century. We have the Independence movements of Egypt, Algeria, and Pakistan as a prime example of hijacked revolutions. The Pakistan movement were steeped into a religious awakening owing to the masses and the visionary leadership of men such as Iqbal, Quaid-e-Azam & Maulana Shabbir Ahmad Uthmani. But what happened afterwards is a trend most unfortunate that has time and time again resulted in a deep despair among the Muslims. It is this trend which caused a pioneer of the freedom movement to retort. Whos Shariah? I dont want to get involved. The moment I enter this field the Ulema will take over.

of trust in Islam and a motion of little or no self-confidence via faith. This zero self-confidence is the outcome of secularism (as a state of mind). But leaving that argument aside, I plan to assess the havoc played by such an indifferent attitude towards religion. I would be limiting my arguments to the 19th and 20th century realm. The examples to follow are disheartening to say the least, and in order to save the current Arab spring from a Judeo- Christian onslaught, we need to ponder over them. Sharif of Makkah, a Syed by descent is gullible enough to fight the Turkish caliphate in the promise of an unlimited rule in Arabia by the British government. This is the time of the Second World War. During the Second World War Turkey sided with Germany and its allies. As the war went, Turkey started strengthening the noose against Great Britain. Ulema and lay muslims alike supported Turkeys stand so much that Maulana Hussain Ahmad Madani gave the verdict that it is prohibited for Muslims to join the British army in its fight against Turkey. At the same time pressure was put on Afghanistans ruler Ameer 7 Habibullah by Muslim clerics to wage a war from Indias tribal areas, in a bid to

It is this trend which has caused the constitution to supersede Islamic laws and if an Islamic law/punishment is not accepted by 2/3rd majority in the parliament, such laws are not valid. This is why we see Ulema having to fight over the issue of blasphemy in the parliament of the Muslim Pakistan and has this law accepted. That this law should have automatically been a part of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan since its inception in 1947, it was not the cause. This trend, this cause is a lack

devastate the British at home. Ameer Habibullah in the words of the Indian viceroy Lord Curzon remained a loyal friend who at the time of war cooperated with us. This done with the entry of United States into the war, Germany lost the war. At the treaty of Versailles, Turkey was torn into pieces, and with the conquest of Palestine, British Prime Minister Llyod George termed it as the victory of the crusaders. The Turkish caliphate had been decimated, but it stood as a temporal Muslim institution. That too was swept away by yet another Muslim Mustafa Kamal Ataturk. The crusader dream of avenging Saladins victory of Jerusalem came true, but not without the hypocrisy of Muslims such as Habibullah Khan and Mustafa Kamal. What made them do what they did isnt a very difficult question to answer. It was zero self-confidence which built around them a faade of Judaeo-Christian supremacy at whose alter, they sacrificed Islam. The next example is that of Kashmir. The Radcliffe award meant that Muslim majority areas go to Pakistan and vise versa. The Indian government in a last ditch effort managed to convince Maharaja Hari Singh to play his Hindu card, and side with India. This was one wrong i.e. to go against the wishes of an entire Muslim population, and also against the Radcliffe award. For those of us who argue two wrongs dont make a right; the Quaid e Azam ordered Liaquat Ali Khan to administer a covert war in the tribal belt of Pakistan. Major General Akbar Khan who was given charge of the operation writes that after the death of the Quaid, the Pakistani government became reluctant to fight the war, courtesy allegations of interference in Indian held Kashmir at the UN . We never look at what India did but are quick to point out that Pakistan must keep its boots on the ground.

and gave in the argument because of your behaviour India kills the Muslims of Kashmir with greater impunity. As if she wasnt doing it before? In 1998 the US government under Bill Clinton sent missiles into Afghanistan to kill Osama Bin Laden. The missiles trespassed Pakistani airspace. In protest the Muslim masses caused a hue and cry. Protests and road blockades marred every city. In a quest to question this Anti- Americanism on the streets, the then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif gave a statement endorsing a Shariah Bill in the parliament. Obviously so, the attention was soon diverted and the Shariah bill issue was soon lost in the pile of pending acts of amendment. Some three years later the then Army chief Pervez Musharraf sided with US in its war against Muslims on the pretext America would have bombed us to stone age.

No self-confidence again wins the battle and becomes the perfect recipe for inaction. The example of Zia ul Haq is something that cannot be attributed to an lesser understanding of faith. Zia ul Haq stands out among the many Pakistani leaders of the past. That he was an exception and a rarity, that is the hard fact. That this was the man who helped Mujahideen route the Russian Red army, who bought India to its knees by supporting Bhindranwale & his Khalistani rebels, carried on with Pakistans nuclear ambitions regardless of US disapproval is no small achievement. But the point to be honed in is that why such a powerful dictator like Zia ul Haq could not amend and change the present system. Sympathizers argue that the international scenario must be kept in perspective, etc. My point is that if Zia could

For the Pakistani government post Quaid e Azam, zero self-confidence came to the rescue

hang Bhutto, why Zia couldnt have carried out a complete Islamization; not by law but by action. What did image matter to him? At the end of the day, apparently it did. In his 10 year rule he changed the world scene by having helped removed the 2nd Superpower of its time. He changed the Pakistan Army, its ISI, had support of even the masses, but that final step which he never took would go down in the annals of history as a lost opportunity and nothing else. The one single reason which I have identified in each of the above there examples merits closer attention. Has not this reluctance to accept our faith become a fact of life for most of us? How many times have we shuddered at the sound of orators like Maulana Masood Azhar inciting masses for Jihad? Have we forgotten the Quranic call:O Prophet, urge the believers to battle (Surah Anfal, verse 65) How many of us have forgotten prisoners like Aafia siddiqui, Sheikh Omar Abdul Rehman and many others? Have we not listened to the Prophetic saying

order to overcome it, I shall cite examples from the Seerah of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W), his companions and then all the way to the leaders of some not so distant past. From the Seerah Prophet(S.A.W.) of the Holy

The instance where an (Honorable) Qurayshite woman had stolen,and the Qurayshites sent one of the Sahaba came to intercede on her behalf infront of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.).The Prophet stated that the reason for the decline & going astray of the previous Ummahs was that when their rich and honorable commit a crime they are left alone,when their poor commit the same,they are punished(i.e. their different treatment vis-a-vis the rich and the poor) ,and By Allah if Fatima Bint Muhammad had done the act, I would have cut her hands. (I have relied on an approximate translation here) Hafiz Hajr Asqalani explains the merits of this hadith and concludes

T - This hadith discusses that when someone becomes liable for punishment, he should not be let off even though he may be your How many of us have chided Ulama such as relative or an honorable member of society. Ameer-e-Azeemat , Maulana Abdul Rashid And it further strictly condones the person Ghazi and Maulana Ahmed Ludhianvi for who tries to make a way out of this situation fomenting hatred and terror? Have we not read by not applying the Islamic Law in this case. the Quranic Verse? - It also helps us analyze the cause of the decline/going astray of the previous .Those of His servants only who are possessed ummahs which is ruling/going against of knowledge (Ulama) fear Allah. Surely Allah is shariah. Mighty, Forgiving.(32:28) The Prophets (PBUH) example mentioned There are many examples which can be touched above should remove the doubts in the upon here, but for now I would suffice with minds and hearts of every Muslim, that these. If the Muslim world desires to come out there is no place for zero self-confidence or of the shadows of Democracy, & benefit from impotence in carrying out the shariah law in this Arab Spring, it must clear the hurdles in its Islam regardless of what the society and way. The first obstacle I have identified. In world says. Free the Prisoner (Bukhari)

From the Seerah of the Prophets Companions A person comes in the presence of Hazrat Umar, and presents his case saying that I have had a dispute with this Jew. I had gone in the presence of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W).This person was a hypocrite. He says that I ha sought the verdict of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W).Hazrat Umar replied as to the Prophets decision. He replied, that the Prophet had ruled in the Jews favor. Hazrat Umar did not enter into an argument with this (outwardly professing) Muslim, instead he takes out his sword and severs the hypocrites head,and proclaims:

continent .Examples include Ameer-eShariat for Maulana Ataullah Shah Bukhari, Sheikh-ul-Hind for Mufti Mahmud-ul-Hassan and Muarikh-e-Islam for Maulana Zia-ul-Rahman Farooqi 5 Pandra Taarikh Saaz Taqreerain (15 Memorable Speeches),Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi

Anyone who doesnt accept the Prophets Judgement,in Umars court his punishment is ONLY death

The above-mentioned example is enough to burst the myth that acting according to shariah is problematic vis-a-vis Muslim Image.

From a not-so-distant past Mullah Omar, leader of the Taliban movement refuses to hand over Osama Bin Laden & other Mujahideen to the United States of America, and in a bid loses his regime post 9/11.And, regardless of all that remarks that Islam does not allow Muslims to be handed over to nonmuslims. He stands firm in the midst of all the euphoria. He remains stead-fast and this is an echo of the Glorious Muslim past.

We are all Jabhat Al-Nusrah - THE MUJAHIDEEN

The Men who rocked


AlHamdulillah (All Praise to Allah), uptil now I can with complete faith in my God, that there is no such person or group on the soil of Pakistan who can cause confusion and disorder in my gatherings ,and then walk away home with convenience & ease. This I am talking about the common man, EVEN the police does not have the courage & audacity to cause disturbance in my jalsa (Public Gathering)..This I am saying with complete faith in my God, I myself am nothing. Thats why if there is any sound or protest (from the crowd) anywhere, you dont have to look in that direction nor take any notice of it. Its between me & that person. If you promise to listen to my talk that way, then I shall begin otherwise we shall make dua (Religious Supplication) and call off the jalsa. I request the intelligence agents, government angels, CID reporters; whatever you may call them to record the words of my claim with sincerity & honesty. It would be their favour on me, if they note these words. Shia is the biggest infidel in the whole universe (Shia Qaainaat ka badtareen kafir hai) This is my claim, very brief very clear and very transparent. I want to bring testimonial evidence to this statement of mine, to proof its veracity and objectivity. My witnesses to this claim and the evidence which I would bring in support of it, would be the judicial verdicts (Fatawa) of the authoritative Ulama across the 1400 year old history of Islam, Prophetic traditions, and the last verdict which cannot be refuted by any authority in the world. So much so that even the Prophet cannot challenge that verdict & that verdict would be that of God ALL-Mighty which I would bring today. Today I would expose this matter leaving no doubt and uncertainty present in the mind of anyone present. And this stand and position, I have endured troubles and affliction of every kind over a period of 15 years. And now, there is no power in the world

which can take away this stance & position away from me. You cannot imagine the level of punishment which I have endured for presenting this stance and stand. It is not my habit to eulogize or self-praise, or to talk about myself. May Allah forgive me (for such self-praise) and protect me from it. Anyways, after reflection and utmost discretion of my own, we have adopted this line (i.e. mission).And in line with this statement is that up till now it is the wish of both me and workers of Sipah-e-Sahaba (Army of the Companions of the Holy Prophet) that we make this position accepted in Pakistans constitution. We do it today, (maybe) next year, (maybe) five years later. It is probable that in our lifetime, we may not be successful but with complete trust and faith in God, I can say that if we continue (in this direction) being well-intentioned, then that day would indeed come on Pakistans soil, when our stand and position be accepted in the National Assembly. I have without any foreword or introduction, presented the words of my claim. Shia is the biggest and filthiest infidel in the whole Universe (Shia Qaainaat ka badtareen aur ghaleez tareen kafir hai). These words are very clear. I want to give arguments and proofs in support of my claim. And, in line with this talk, I would praise the Companions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) which is my lifes permanent and unshakeable goal. Among my power and the information which I could extract, there is no authoritative alim (religious scholar) in my observation across the 1400 year-old Islamic History who after a perusal & study of shiism not declared Shiites as unbelievers. This cannot happen. As a specimen and example, I would name a few (Ulama). Sage of the community (Hakeem ul Ummah) Imam Malik Bin Anas referring to the ayat of the Quran (Surah Al-Fath, Last Ayat) declares openly that in the light of this ayat, Shiites are

are Non-Muslims & Un-believers. Malik Bin Anas is not todays personality.Centuries have passed (since his death).Keeping this ayat in front of him, he has given the verdict against Shiism, which even today is present in the Quranic tafaseer. Pick up any tafseer you would find Imam Maliks verdict (fatwa). The most simple and easy to understand exegesis (tafsir) is that of Sheikh-ul-Islam Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani. In this ayat you would notice Imam Maliks fatwa. For your satisfaction, I will bring few more judicial verdicts. This is my challenge that there has been no person, no alim in these 1400 years who after a perusal of Shiism has hesitated in declaring twelver Shiites as Unbelievers and infidels. He had to say it. The most reliable book of the Hanafi Fiqh (School of Islamic Law) Fatawa Alamgiri which was arranged under the supervision of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb Alamgir, and which was compiled by 500 ulama. In it this truth has been stated in open words, Mun Ankara suhbata abi bakr fahua kafir (Any person who doesnt believe in Abu Bakr being a companion of the Holy Prophet is an infidel and unbeliever) This is also not todays verdict. Centuries have passed (since its compilation).I was not born yet, nor my father nor even my grand-father, when on that particular day 500 ulama were writing with their pens Siddiq-e-Akbars (appellation for Hazrat Abu Bakr) enemies as infidels. Mujadid Alif Thani (Revivalist of the second millennium) Sheikh Ahmed Sirhindi, whose bravery and valour is historys authentic fact. Who alone dealt with his periods despotic ruler, by facing (opposition), who endured detention at Gwalior Fort, who earned the appellation mujadid i.e. Revivalist by the community of the faithful. This same mujadid writes with his sanctified pen that Shiites are non-Muslims and infidels, and that the ulama of the Indian Sub-Continent have declared Shiites as kafirs. Shiites had written against this verdict of the Ulama of the Indian Sub-Continent, that we are Muslims and your verdict is wrong and invalid. Mujadid Alif Thani gave valid arguments in the light of Quran & Sunnah to refute the retaliatory verdict and claim of the Shiites, and confirmed and supported the

verdict of the Ulama in his famous pamphlet Refutation of the Rafhidis (Radd-eRawafiz).In it he writes that Shiites are the biggest infidel in the whole universe. Its been over four centuries since the time of Mujadid Alif Thani, and we are now into the 5th century. This is also not todays issue and discourse, it is quite old. And even today, you would find Mujadid Alif Thanis verdict in this world. You can take it and study it. After Mujadid Alif Thani comes the Muslim Communitys Grand Leader, the great scholar of the Indian Sub-Continent, Leader of Holy Men, Shah Waliullah Muhadith Dehlvi. May Allah bestow His unlimited grace and mercy on the grave of the great leader. In his authentic & reliable book Aids to Understanding God (Tafheemat-e-Illaya) he narrates one such dream of his. That in the state of dreaming, he had the privilege of seeing the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Shah Waliullah writes, that in my dream I questioned (the Prophet PBUH) O Master what do I make and think of Shiites. He further writes, that my master advised me to study the Shiite belief of Imamate; the truth will become clear to you. Shah Waliullah writes, that the next morning I read and studied afresh the Shiite concept of Imamate and after reading it gave the decision that Shiites do confess with tongue that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is the last Prophet, but in reality Shiites do not acknowledge the khatme-Nubuwwat of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).They believe in 12 Prophets after the Holy Prophet (PBUH).You very well know that the denier of the finality of Prophet-hood is a Non-Muslim. This fact is apparent and manifest to every Muslim. Shah Waliullah has written this brief verdict, I would like to clarify. In order to make you understand as the Shiite belief of Imamate, I would say something. Shiite issue of Imamate is that the Imam is infallible (masum). His obedience is obligatory. He receives esoteric revelation (wahi) from God. Every year on the night of ascension (laylat-ul-Qadr), that years complete commands come down on him. That year he obeys and carries out the commands. The next year on the night of ascension (laytal-ul-Qadr) new commands come down. The Imam has the power and

authority to make prohibited (haram) that which is permissible (halal), and that which is prohibited (haram) as permissible (halal).When the Imam sleeps, his ablution doesnt break. Imam can see from the front and from the back. Miracles manifest from the Imams hands continuously. The Imams birth is unlike that of ordinary mortals, instead he is born from the mothers thighs (and not her womb).Imams status and position is superior and elevated than all the (Holy) Prophets of Allah. This is the Shiite belief of Imamate.Revelation comes down on the infallible Imam, he is born from the mothers thigh, fragrance and scented odour comes from the Imams body. Some Twelwer Shiites have written that the Holy Prophets (PBUH) status and position is comparatively higher than that of the Imams. But Irans Khomeini, leader and guide of the 15th Century Shiites writes in his Al-Hakumat Al-Islamiya (Islamic Government) that the status and position of the 12 Imams is superior to that of every angel and Prophet. This is the Shiite belief of Imamate on the basis of which Shah Waliullah had written that Shiites do not acknowledge the Finality of ProphetHood, instead are its worst deniers. And when they are deniers of the belief of Khatme-e-Nubuwwat then they are NonMuslims. And, this Shah Waliullah has not just written and come at this conclusion by himself, but instead on the order of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) vis--vis a dream and after a fresh perusal of the matter, wrote with complete valour and determination that surely by tongue Shiite confess to the Finality of ProphetHood but in reality they do not acknowledge this. Aids to Understanding God (Tafheemat-eIllaya) is available even today. Its available in the Persian Language. Any person amongst you who wishes so, can study the book himself. He can search for Shah Waliullahs words, and look at it with his own eyes. I am not talking about todays issue. I havent touched upon a new matter. I havent created an innovation. Nor have we opened the way for dissention or animosity among the Ummah. We are saying the same thing which for decades the authoritative Ulama of the Ummah have been repeating in the light of Quran and Sunnah.

Before Shah Waliullah I should have mentioned one more personality. Infact even before Mujadid Alif Thani (I should have talked about) Allama Ibn Taimiyya, who was a mountain of knowledge, who was an ocean of knowledge. And whose bravery and courage was such that his funeral took place in a state of detention (i.e. from prison).Who did not find it in his honor to submit before the tyrant of his time. His love for the people was such, that when pen & paper was snatched away from him, he used coal for writing on the leaves of the trees to guide the Ummah. And used to give guidance to the Ummah while sitting in jail. This Ibn Taimiyya in his Book asSarim al-Maslul ala Shatim ar-Rasul (The Drawn Sword against those who insult the Messenger) writes that Shia is the biggest infidel in the whole universe. You can today read Ibn Taimiyyas book with your own eyes and see for it himself the Imams verdict. My venerable audience, I had reached (the history) up to Shah Waliullah. Moving on, Shah Waliullahs capable son Abdul Aziz has by written Tohfa-e-Ithna Ashari (Gift to the twelvers) fixed a thorn in Shiisms side which can never be extracted by its progeny till the Day of Judgement. Shah Abdul Aziz in his Fatawa Azizi writes Hanafi Fiqh declares that Shiites are nonMuslims and with it a Sunni Females nikah cannot take place This is the family which helped the political cause (i.e. the Struggle for Independence) in the Indian Sub-Continent. This is the family which took on fights with the powerful British Raj in the Sub-Continent. This is the family, who had the courage to look into the eyes of the rulers. And see with what courage they are condemning Shiites as unbelievers. Respectable Audience! After Shah Abdul Aziz lets move further-on. Leader of the Scholars of Ahl Sunnah, the most pious among the pious, Shaykh-ul-Islam, the Great hero of the Indian War of Independence Allama Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi in his Fatawa Rasheedia writes in reply to a question. The questioner asks that a Sunni woman by belief enters into nikah with a Shiite on the basis of misunderstanding & delusion regarding his belief. Is it necessary for her to obtain a divorce now, or without it, she can be separated from him (on the pretext) that the

marriage never took place. That Sunni women should obtain a divorce or not? The second question..A father is Sunni and his children become Shiite. Can they become heirs to their fathers property etc? The Saint of his time, the great Mujahid of the war of Independence, extremely pious scholar writes that the women can separate from the man without the divorce, because Shiite is an infidel, and that the Sunni females nikah never took place. Similarly, the sons of the Sunni Father who have become Shiite, cannot be the heirs of his inheritance or property. The father was a Muslim, and the children being Shiites have become infidels or unbelievers. Honorable Listeners!..... After Maulana Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi, lets move forward. Leader and guide of the Scholars & followers of the Barelvi school of thought, I would take his name with honor & respectMaulana Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi in his Fatawa Rizvia and in a brief booklet of his Radd-ur-Rafza has written that Shiites are the worst among non-believers. And his words are that Shiites whether he be big or small, male or female, urban dweller or villager is without any doubt outside the pale of Islam. And, he is not just content on this alone, instead he further declares Who-ever doubts the kufr of the Shiites, he himself is an infidel This is Maulana Ahmed Razas verdict which is present in his fatawa Rizvia. Further-more he instilled so much hatred for Shiites to the extent, that a person asks if a Shiite enters (or falls) into a well, should we dis-charge the complete well or should we extract some bucket-full of water, so that the well becomes pure? I would with utmost respect request the Barelvi Scholars that why are you not ready to obey on the verdict of your leader & guide. If the Barelvi scholars do not agree with my statement, then at least youngsters (and ordinary people) of the Barelvi school should support us in our stand and position. Ahmed Raza writes (in reply to the above-mentioned question) writes, Discharge the whole well and then the well would become pure. And the reason (for this statement of his) he writes that a shia would always try to make Sunnis eat haram. If he cannot do anything, the least

he would do is to urinate in the well of Ahlu Sunnah. That is why, it is incumbent and necessary to discharge all the water in the well. And this statement is not said by Maulana Ahmed Raza alone, but Shaykh-ulArab wal Ajam (Leader of the Arabs and NonArabs) Maulana Hussain Ahmed Madani has also narrated a similar stance. Someone had asked a similar question that whether food cooked by Shiites can be eaten or not. Upon this, Shaykh-ul-Arab wal Ajam says not to eat (and the reason he provides is) if a Shia cannot do anything, he would spit in the food, and then serve food to the Ahlu Sunnah. A confirmation of such an incident which is even more grotesque was narrated by Maulana Muhammad Abdullah of Bhakkar, Punjab. A friend of his is a member of the Tablighi Jamat. He had business relations with a Shia. They were partners, and had cordial relations with each other. He narrated one such personal incident to Maulana Abdullah. He says that this Shiite with whom I had business relations, I went (to his home).He had arranged food for me. When the food was served, I moved my hands towards it. It was a village environment; there was no custom of a veil or Purdah. His wife, who is a Sunni, stands up and motions with her hand that I must not eat the food. I hesitated..I have trade relations with him; the tyrant must have poisoned the food. Here I die, and here he is free (to do whatever with my share in the business).Nevertheless he urged me to eat, while his wife motioned me (behind his back) not to eat. He saw what his wife was doing. He asked her why is she stopping me from eating? In reply, she said that she was right in preventing me from eating. The argument is prolonged further myself asked the Shia as to what is the reason, what is the matter? Rather than answering me, he gets up and starts beating his wife, started torturing her. When he had abused her further, his wife cried out he had sexual intercourse with me, and mixed the impurity (i.e. semen discharge) in the food. My religious sense of honor does not permit me, that I give such impurity in food to a Muslim Brother !!!

Shia equality or Shia supremacy? supremacy?

Raza Hossein Borr

Every human being as a citizen of a country has an equal right of participation in political process. The person may be a Shia, a Sunni, a Christian, a Jew or the follower of any other religion. As the Declaration of Human Rights has stated all human beings are equal and must be treated equally and must have equal opportunities in their countries. If we accept this article of the Declaration of Human Rights we must also accept that the Shias must have equal rights with the Sunnis wherever they live and the Sunnis must have equal rights with the Shias wherever they live. If we consider equality of rights as the most important value that governs the relationships between different people we campaign for something which is just, acceptable and supportable. If we campaign for the supremacy of one religion, we act in contrast of the value of equal rights and therefore, our campaign is not just, is not acceptable and must not be supported. It is true that many Shias in the Islamic World have no equal rights in many areas of life but it is also true that the Sunnis of Iran have fewer rights than any Shia in any Islamic country. Iran has taken the role of championing the rights of the Shia people. It is fighting relentlessly in all countries to secure their rights but Iran which is dominated by the Shias, have deliberately denied the most basic rights of the Sunnis in the last 28 years. Discrimination against the Sunnis covers every part of life from education, to politics, business, religion, etc. These are some examples: 1. Educational discrimination against the Sunnis of Iran There are 44,000 students in Iranian Baluchistan universities. Even 4, 000 of them are not Sunni Baluch. The Iranian government deliberately does not allow the Sunni Baluch of Iran to enter universities freely. This is while, according to one United Nations research, the Baluch children are the most talented children in Iran. This policy is pursued in all other Sunni dominated areas. Only in one county of Baluchistan, there are 500 schools which are built with cardboards and tents.

2. Political discrimination against the Sunnis of Iran Since the beginning of the revolution, the Shia regime of Iran has not allowed even one Sunni to become prime minister, president, minister, an army general, and an ambassador. There is not even one single Sunni in the Iranian Foreign Ministry. There is not even one Sunni chief executive in the whole country. All the officials in the Sunnis provinces and cities are the Shias who have been appointed by the Shia government.

3. Religious discrimination against the Sunnis of Iran The Iranian media and leaders cite every day dozens of insulting remarks about the principles of Sunni religion. They have published hundreds of books which discredit the most important values of Islam. So much so that the Iranian government has recently built a huge temple to promote Abu Lu Lu, the killer of Omar (the second Caliph), as a great Islamic figure. The regime celebrates every year the murder of Omar by staging some ceremonies in which his effigy is burnt in public. There are about one million Sunnis in Tehran, the capital of Iran, but the Iranian authorities do not allow them to build even one mosque. They are not allowed to perform their prayers in other Shia mosques. When they try to perform Friday prayers in parks, the security forces attack them. 4. Economic discrimination against the Sunnis of Iran 99% of the Iranian businesses are under the control of the Shia population of Iran while 30% of Iranian population is Sunni. The government creates every barrier for the Sunnis to stop them from starting or developing their businesses. The major import and export licences are allocated to the Shia businessmen. Even in the main cities of Sunnis, all the facilities of business are given to the Shias to deliberately impoverish the Sunni population of Iran. 70% to 80% of Sunnis are unemployed.

Shia inclusions in political and economic sources in Sunni dominated countries

While Iran is applying all kinds of discriminations against the Sunnis, the Sunni governments are quite generous towards their Shia populations. It is a paradox that a regime that is fighting for the rights of the Shias in different countries discriminates more than any other country against the Sunnis in Iran. The Sunni governments are usually inclined to include the Shias in the mainstream political and economic process. These are some examples: 1. Pakistan Everybody knows the Bhutto family in Pakistan. They are a Shia family but they have governed Pakistan three times. There have been other Shia presidents and prime ministers in Pakistan. The Shias in Pakistan enjoy complete equality in a Sunni dominated country. There have been many Shia ministers in all Governments of Pakistan from the beginning of Pakistan up to now. There are Shia army generals, there are Shia ambassadors and diplomats and there are big Shia businessmen. They have their own mosques. There are Shias in different levels of the civil service as well. 2. Afghanistan There are several Shia ministers in the Afghan government. There have been always Shia ministers in various Afghan regimes. There are Shia governors in Afghanistan. There are Shia army generals in Afghanistan. There are very rich Shia businessmen in Afghanistan too. 3. Kuwait There are two Shia ministers in Kuwait. There are many Shia generals in Kuwait army. There are dozens of Shia ministers, army generals, ambassadors, businessmen and high officials in Qatar and other Arab countries. While we see that there are so many Shia high officials in Islamic and Arab world, but there is not a single high official from the Sunnis in Iran. Why is there so much discrimination against the Sunnis in a regime that claims to embody Islamic justice, Islamic equality and brotherhood? And why there is so much silence about the exclusions of Sunnis from all sources of power in Iran? If the Shia government of Iran is fighting for the rights of Shias everywhere, why the Sunni governments of the world are not fighting for the rights of Sunnis in Iran?

Practically the Shias have secured their supremacy in Iran at the cost of 30% of its Sunni population. Now they are seeking supremacy in other countries. For them the idea of equal rights is not a value of considerable importance when it comes to getting their own supremacy but when they do not have equal rights in other countries, they make a great issue of it. What is disturbing everybody is not the quest of the Shias for their equal rights but their desire for supremacy. That has generated considerable resistance everywhere. Iran as the main Shia country must accept the value of equal rights for all its citizens inside Iran and then make its case for the equality of rights of the Shias in other countries. Nobody believes in the Iranian campaign for equal rights of the Shias in the Islamic countries if the Iranian regime does not believe in the equal rights of the Sunnis in Iran. The Iranian regime must first make itself a believable example and must establish a model system which is a model of equality. Iran has challenged other Islamic countries that they were not following the Islamic principles of brotherhood, equality and justice. If the government believes in these principles it must implement them fully and completely in Iran first. Once Iran becomes the embodiment of equality and justice, many other people and governments would follow it voluntarily. The Iranian regime can bring more credibility to its own system and to its own religion if it carries out what it preaches. Nobody is ready to accept the supremacy of the Shias. It is a delusion that may initially grab some points but finally as the quest for supremacy is conducted recklessly, as it is done by the present regime of Iran, it will backfire and would result in the suppression of Shias in different countries. 30% of Iranian population is Sunni. Eight of its provinces are dominated by the Sunnis. Yet there has not been a single minister, army general, ambassador or a top official in the last 28 years in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The situation is clear. There is no idea of equal rights in the minds of the Shia population of Iran and specifically its rulers. The other amazing thing is the complete silence of the ordinary Shia people over the suppression of Sunnis. Even more amazing is the complete silence of the Iranian politicians, intellectuals, journalists and political activists over the total exclusion of Sunnis from all sources of power. The systematic discrimination that has been carried out against the Sunnis of Iran has not been criticised by any Iranian Shia politician. It seems that there is a total consensus among all Shia groups of Iran about the exclusion of Sunnis from all sources ess. These are some examples:

and centres of political and economic powers while all of them collectively protest strongly against the discrimination carried out against the Shias in Sunni dominated countries. The Shia groups of different political tendencies have differences but these differences are all about who has the power and who must have it. All governments of Iran have taken over the power with great promises of equality of rights and equality of opportunity but as soon as they got established, they adapted the same old policies of oppression and suppression of different classes and groups and specifically the Sunnis.

These are not only the Shias of Iran who have dominated Muslims; the Shias of Iraq are persuing the same path. If the Shias in Iraq are not seeking supremacy why did they dissolve the Iraqi army, civil service and the Iraqi secret services? If those establishments were allowed to function, today the situation would have been much better. Cleansing the Sunnis from the sensitive cities and areas in Iraq is seeking Shia supremacy. The same could be true about Lebanon. If Hezbollah is not looking for supremacy why is it seeking the toppling of an elected government which has been elected democratically and freely according to the Lebanese constitution? It is right for the Hezbollah to have its appropriate share in the Lebanese government but it is also the right for the Sunnis in Iran to fight for their fair share of power. The Sunnis of Iraq have the same rights that the Shias have in Iran and Lebanon. As evidence demonstrates it seems that wherever the Shias are in power the Sunnis are completely excluded. Is there a deep-rooted discriminatory belief in the Shia mind? Reza Hossein Borr is a leadership consultant and the creator of 150 CDs.

Discrimination by Iranian media and journalists against the Sunnis

The Iranian media of the Shia opposition groups follow the same policy of discrimination against Sunnis. They publish everyday hundreds of articles and news on every aspect of life in Iran but they refuse to publish the news of hanging of the Sunnis of Baluchistan by Iranian regime. If a Shia journalist gets arrested, they follow every movement of his family and report every thing about him to maintain his presence in the media. If ten Sunnis get killed in Baluchistan, the opposition media of Iran refuse to publish the news even if it has been published by the Iranian regime. The Iranian media publishes hundreds of articles about the Shia political prisoners in other countries and refuse to publish any article on the political prisoners of Sunni community of Iran. Even those security forces of Iran who have defected to the West reveal the secrets of serial killings of the Shia intellectuals and journalists but they refuse to disclose the serial killings of the Sunni leaders and intellectuals. All the Shia politicians and journalists of Iran seem to agree with the present government in its policies of genocide and complete exclusion of the Sunnis. The same media that applied discrimination against the Sunnis , publishes extensively about any news regarding persecution of the Shias in the Sunni countries. They report widely the news of Hezbollah and the Shia demonstrations in Bahrain. They portray Hezbollah as the hero of the Arab world and the Shias of Bahrain as the oppressed people who have been persecuted by Bahrain authorities but they refuse to publish the news of executions and persecutions of the Sunnis in Iran.


Jihad A Cause of Mercy or Anarchy By Maulana Masood Azhar

One of the doubts expressed about Jihaad is that it is synonymous with killing, attacking and causing mayhem and disorder. In fact, many non-Muslims shrink away from accepting Islaam only because of the injunction of Jihaad. Orientalists have used this to propagate the misnomer that Islam is a barbaric and oppressive religion that advocates expansion by force. Fearing such vehement criticism from the Orientalists, many Muslim authors and historians have approached the issue of Jihaad very apologetically. Instead of portraying the Islaamic conquests and military expeditions with pride and revealing the sacrifices and valour they contain, they have opted to rather adopt an attitude of embarrassment and remorse. They have repeatedly made attempts to explain that these situations occurred for reasons of exigency because Islaam would otherwise have nothing to do with the sword. In their works our pious predecessors have described these battles and military expeditions in wonderful detail. They have presented the sacrifices and valour of the Sahabah with pride and as precedents to be proudly emulated. In fact, they even penned works dedicated to this subject and etched these narrations in history. Using logical proofs and proofs from the Shariah, we shall address this important subject in brief. May Allaah grant every Muslim the ability to enliven the compulsory duty of Jihaad, thereby allowing the blessings and mercy of this act to spread throughout the world. Our Claim The followers of Islaam are unanimous about the fact that Jihaad is a great mercy from Allaah and it is through this great mercy that this world and the entire universe remains in existence. Were it not for Jihaad, this world and the entire universe would be corrupted and destroyed. Without it no Masjid would have any sanctity and no religious institution would be saved from ruin. In fact, oppression and transgression would become so rampant that people of every religious denomination would find it impossible to practise their religion in peace. It is on the basis of the crystal clear verses of the Glorious Qur'aan that the adherents of Islaam can make this claim with complete conviction.

The First Proof

Allah Declares:

If it were not for the fact that Allaah opposes some people with others, monasteries, churches and synagogues would be destroyed, as well as Masaajid in which Allaahs name is taken in abundance (However, because Allaah makes the people of truth repel attacks from the evil ones of their respective times, these places of worship remain safe). Allaah will certainly assist those who assist Him (those who assist His Deen). Verily Allaah is Omnipotent, Mighty. {Surah Hajj, verse 40}

This verse makes it clear that it is by the clashing of people of the truth and people of falsehood that

the safety of places of worship is ensured. If Jihaad was stopped, there would be none on earth to worship Allaah. In fact, it was exactly this that Rasulullaah preferred to before the decisive Battle of Badr when he prayed, O Allaah! If this small group (of Muslims) is destroyed, there will be none on earth to take Your Name. Had people been prohibited from fighting battles in all circumstances, this would have opposed the divine system of Allaah because every nation has to wage war at some stage of their existence to ensure their survival. Had this not been the case and had it not been for Allaah pitching the forces of good against the forces of evil, there would remain not a trace of good on the face of this earth. The forces of evil who are in the majority during every era would then have ravaged every sanctified place on earth, leaving no place of worship standing.

The Second Proof

Allaah states:

If Allaah had not repelled (driven back) some (corrupt) men by others (had good men not prevailed over the corrupt and evil ones), the (entire) earth would have been corrupted (Allaah therefore sets matters straight in this way from time to time). However, Allaah is the One Who showers grace on the universe. {Surah Baqarah, verse 251}

A study of the circumstances surrounding this verse reveals that some time after Hadhrat Moosa (A.S), the behaviour of the Bani Israaeel changed. This occurred while Hadhrat Dawood (A.S) was still a child. As a result, a tyrant called Jaaloot (Goliath) managed to subdue them. He killed many of them, took away their belongings, expelled them from their homes, imprisoned them and subjected them to various types of difficulties. The oppressed Bani Israaeel then requested the Nabi of the time Hadhrat Ishmueel (A.S) to appoint a king for them, under whose leadership they would revolt and free themselves from the clutches of Jaaloot. When the Nabi (A.S) expressed the fear that they would perhaps not accept the command to fight, they assured him that they would certainly do so by saying, Why should we not fight when we have been separated from our homes and our children? However, when Allaah made it compulsory for them to fight, all but a few of them rejected the command. Nevertheless, the Nabi (A.S) informed them that Allaah had appointed Hadhrat Taaloot as their king, under whose leadership they were to wage Jihaad to liberate themselves. However, because Hadhrat Taaloot was a poor man who did not belong to a noble family, the Bani Israaeel objected to his appointment, making it clear that they wanted their king to be someone with wealth and of high birth. The Nabi (A.S) pointed out that Allaah had approved of Hadhrat Taaloot and that he excelled the rest of them in knowledge and physical strength. He also told them that Allaah reserved the right to appoint whoever He wills as king. After passing through some tests, the people who were eventually left with Hadhrat Taaloot to face Jaaloot numbered only 313. The others fell behind when they failed to pass through the tests. However, Allaah does not require armies to be strong in number to be victorious. To separate the grain from the chaff, Allaah issues the command of Jihaad and it is always the true and sincere Mu'mineen who rally to the call. Thereafter, regardless of their numbers and armaments, Allaah grants them victory when they reach the battlefield.

When the small army of Hadhrat Taaloot faced the large and powerful army of Jaaloot, Jaaloot came forward to boast. When Hadhrat Taaloot sent a young boy forward to fight Jaaloot, Jaaloot laughed and said that he was strong enough to take on the entire army of Hadhrat Taaloot. However, the young boy was no ordinary boy. He was destined to be a prophet and his name was Dawood. Using a simple slingshot, Hadhrat Dawood (A.S) managed to kill Jaaloot and the Bani Israaeel were freed from his tyranny. Peace and safety once more prevailed on earth. It is after narrating this incident that Allaah states that had it not been for the forces of good opposing the forces of evil, life on earth would be corrupted. However, because Allaah is the One Who showers grace on the universe, He frees the universe from the forces of evil by allowing the forces of good to defeat them. This allows people to freely choose the path of good. When this happens, it is not necessary for the forces of good to be as powerful or more powerful than the forces of evil. All that is required is for the forces for good to have the courage to reach the battlefield and to place their trust in Allaah. Allaah will then grant them victory even though they may be in a physically inferior position. This is exactly what happened when the small army of Hadhrat Taaloot defeated the larger and more powerful army of Jaaloot. In fact, Allaah had the gigantic Jaaloot killed by a little boy. In a similar manner, Allaah gave victory to Rasulullaah (S.A.W) and the Sahabah (R.A) in the Battle of Badr when their army of only 313 were poorly equipped and outnumbered by the 1000 strong Quraysh army who were armed to the teeth. In addition to this, Abu Jahal who was the proud and ruthless leader of the Quraysh was toppled by two boys named Muaadh and Muawwidh. It was then Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Masood, a man from a family of no high social standing, severed Abu Jahals head. Through the Battle of Badr, the entire region of Hijaaz was freed from the shackles of injustice, ignorance, kufr and Shirk when the Muslims defeated the Mushrikeen. When the seventy Mushrikeen were killed in the battle, the roads to the justice and freedom of Islaam were opened not only to the people of Hijaaz but to all of humanity. A Stark Reality: Hadhrat Sheikhul Islaam (Maulana Shabbir Ahmed Usmani) makes the following comment on the above incident: When the army of Jaaloot fled, the Mu'mineen were victorious. Hadhrat Taaloot then married his daughter to Hadhrat Dawood (A.S) and after he passed away, Hadhrat Dawood (A.S) became the king. This incident makes it clear that Jihaad has always been practised and that it contains the mercy and favour of Allaah. It is only foolish people who will state that Jihaad is not for the Ambiyaa. An Interesting Point of Logic: When land becomes uncultivable, three steps have to be taken. The first is that the hoe has to be used. In this way, all weeds and other obstacles need to be removed. The second step is to nourish the land with fertilizer. It is only after this that the seeds are planted and watered. After these steps one can expect the land to flourish with crops. In a similar manner, when kufr, Shirk, corruption and other forms of oppression become rife on earth, the first step to remove it is to wield the hoe of Jihaad. Thereafter, the blood of the Kuffaar becomes the fertilizer. Experience shows that the more poisonous a fertilizer is, the better it is for the ground. Therefore, the earth also becomes a better place when it is fertilised with the blood of people who are the worst elements and the most dangerous. After this, the third step is that the seeds of Muslim blood need to planted. With the blessed blood of Muslim martyrs, the Islaam will then flourish and the excellent tree of Imaan takes firm root and continues to prosper.

The Third Proof

One of the greatest causes of lawlessness on earth is widespread corruption that in terms of the Quraan is worse than killing. Allaah says:

Corruption (preventing people from Deen is worse than killing. {Surah Baqara, verse 217}

The Quraan condemns this corruption in various verses and states that spreading corruption is a hallmark of the Kuffaar. In verse 7 of Surah Aal Imraan, the Quraan identifies that one of the distinctive characteristics of the Kuffaar that they search for avenues to cause mischief. It is behaviour like this that causes disunity and disputes amongst mankind because of which people are killed, property is destroyed and people are plunged into deviation. Jihaad is a cure for all of this, because of which Allaah says:

Continue fighting them until no corruption (especially no Shirk and turning others away from Islaam) exists and until religion (worship) is only for Allaah (until people worship Allaah only). {Surah Baqara, verse 193}

It is therefore clear that the objective of Jihaad is to obliterate lawlessness and oppression and to check the Kuffaar from preventing people from entering Islaam. It ensures that Allaahs law prevails on earth, which is the natural state of affairs that the world needs as urgently as arid land needs water. Of course, the verse following the above verse makes it clear that once the Kuffaar desist from kufr and Shirk, no aggression can be perpetrated against them because the only objective of Jihaad is to get rid of evil and corruption. In the commentary of this verse, it is necessary to quote the following historical statement of Hadhrat Sheikhul Hind (Maulana Mahmud-ul-Hassan). He says, It should be remembered that Jihaad should certainly be waged against those Kuffaar who refuse to desist. Such are the high objectives of Jihaad. Allaah reiterates this message in Surah Anfaal, where Allaah says:

Fight them until no corruption (kufr) exists and all religion (worship) is for Allaah. {Surah Anfaal, verse 39}

This verse refers to the final objective of Jihaad, which is to exterminate every shred of resistance that kufr offers so that Islaam dominates over all other religions and all abide to the law of Allaah. This may take place together with the existence of other religions as occurred during the periods of the Khulafaa Raashideen and other Muslim leaders. Alternatively, it can also occur after all other religions have been eliminated, as will occur during the period when Hadhrat Isa (A.S) will return to this world. This verse tells us that both offensive and defensive forms of Jihaad should always continue until the above mentioned objective is attained in both forms. Allaah has revealed the Quraan as a cure and a mercy. Since the Quraan has prescribed Jihaad as the cure for corruption and lawlessness, it follows that Jihaad contains curative properties and is also a source of mercy. While verses mentioned earlier state that Jihaad is a source of mercy, the Quraan also makes it clear that Jihaad is a cure for the hearts. In the following verse, Allaah mentions six benefits of Jihaad. Allaah says:

Fight them! (1) Allaah will punish them at your hands (when they are killed), (2) will humiliate them (when they are imprisoned and defeated), (3) will assist you against them, (4) will heal the (pain and sorrow in the) hearts of the Mu'mineen (who suffered at the hands of the Kuffaar) and (5) remove the fury of their hearts (which was built when the Kuffaar broke the treaty). (6) Allaah accepts the repentance (from kufr) of whoever He wills (thereby allowing the Kuffaar to become Muslims). Allaah is All Knowing (He knows the deeds and ideas of all), the Wise (His decisions are based on wisdom and knowledge). {Surah Taubah, verses 14,15}

A Pertinent Point
The Quraan has emphatically condemned killing and aggression and pronounced the punishment as eternity in Jahannam. Allaah says:

Whoever purposely murders a Mu'min (regarding his act as a permissible act), his punishment shall be Jahannam where he shall live forever. Allaah shall be angry with him, curse him and prepare for him a dreadful punishment. {Surah Nisaa, verse 93}

While the above verse condemns killing a Mu'min, the following verse condemns killing any person and likens it to killing all of mankind. Allaah says:

Whoever kills another for a reason other than (executing a murderer of) a soul or (other than executing someone who causes) corruption on the earth, then it is as if he had killed all of mankind. {Surah Maaidah, verse 32}

When someone kills another, others also learn how to commit the act and are encouraged to do the same. Although the Quraan has explicitly forbidden killing, there are certain crimes which lead to social dysfunction. Like a cancerous limb, they have to be surgically removed so that their ill effects do not spread elsewhere. The Quraan has therefore prescribed the cure for such evils as execution. As long as the execution is employed as a curative measure, it no longer remains an abominable act. In fact, it now assumes the form of a mercy to mankind because it protects society from much more serious consequences. The Quraan first cites the evil and disastrous consequences of these evils before prescribing the cure which will put an effective end to it. In fact, the cure is so effective that the evil no longer remains an obstacle to public peace and security. We shall now cite a few examples of ways that the Quraan has prescribed to eradicate evils. By employing these ways, Rasulullaah (S.A.W) and the Sahabah (R.A) achieved much success. In a broad context, the Quraan has instructed that Muslims fight the Mushrikeen. Allaah says:

Fight all the Mushrikeen (in every condition) just as they fight all of you (regardless of your condition and whereabouts), and know that indeed Allaah is with those who possess Taqwa (and will assist them against their enemies). {Surah Taubah, verse 36}

The Quraan has also commanded that the leaders of the Kuffaar should be fought because they are the very root and source of all evil who spread evil all over when their followers blindly follow them. When they are effectively terminated, kufr and evil will also not last. The relevant verse of the Quraan states:

If they break their promises after entering into a treaty and condemn your Deen, then fight the leaders of kufr. Indeed they are such that they have no (regard for the) promises (they make) so that they (would) refrain (from betraying others). {Surah Taubah, verse 12}

The Quraan has also explicitly commanded Muslims to fight the Ahlul Kitaab. Allaah says:

Fight those from the ones who have been given the Book (the Jews and Christians) who do not believe in Allaah and the Last Day, who do not accept as unlawful those things that Allaah and His Rasool r have declared unlawful (such as liquor, pork, interest, etc), and who do not accept the true Deen (of Islaam). Fight them until they pay the Jizya with their own hands in humiliation (bowing under Muslim rule). {Surah Taubah, verse 29}

The Quraan has also commanded Muslims to wage Jihaad against those people who vilify and cause harm to Rasulullaah (S.A.W). Referring to them, Allaah says:

They are accursed (cast far from Allaahs mercy). (Therefore,) Wherever they go (to seek asylum), they will be seized and massacred (unless they desist from their evil practices). {Surah Ahzaab, verse 61}

The above is just a glance at a few commands to fight the Mushrikeen, the Ahlul Kitaab and all those who vilify Rasulullaah (S.A.W). This makes it clear the most effective means of eradicating these many evils is Jihaad. Looking further, one would read that the Quraan also commands that Jihaad be waged against those Muslims who fight another group of Muslims for no good reason. The Quraan states that when two parties of Muslims have a dispute, efforts should be made to reconcile their differences in a diplomatic manner. When this fails, Jihaad may be waged against the party acting aggressively and oppressively until they submit to the commands of Allaah.


If Iran were to attack Pakistan and preparations become underway especially during 9th & 10th Muharram, and if orders come that all government offices of Pakistan be run over and come under siege, then can anyone tell me should Iran send its army? These Muharram procession mourners present in every city are Irans free soldiers and without being paid they can take over the country with Irans weapons and sticks and knives. If something like this happens and in the presence of all officers, these processions corner them and take control of all strategic locations, and if no one is present to give orders to do something about this, what would happen?? They would kill which-ever Sunni Officer they feel like, imprison who-ever they feel, and the remaining forces and police become silent spectators, then your position would be such that you cannot take your injured to hospitals. For roads leading to hospitals would be blocked and so would be the case for police stations. These plans are under-way & Pakistans Sunni officers and politicians are not getting this.. When these processions are not mandatory, not sunnat, not even wajib, no book of theirs has any mention of this, its not been reported by an imam then why the need for them?.....They know that what they have to do. Then you would cry and scream that Allama Haq Nawaz Jhangvi was right, the soldiers of the Sahaba were right.Listen to usWe are your defenders, and this nations.We are your well-wishers tyrants.differentiate between friend & foe..Today you are being praised (by them), thats their strategy..In their religion there is no sympathy for you.. O Sunni officers take heed Today you are defending them.Those who have in their books written that save us i.e. except our shias, the rest are sons born out of wed-lock, and in AlRauza Kafi they have stated that all sunnis are the children of prostitutes..& further-more it is written that you can steal and kill a sunni but from behind, because if you kill from the front, you would be killed in retaliation i.e. qisas and your one Shiite is precious than 1 lakh sunnis You favour them who have always not let any chance to hit you and who have always supported the kuffar in destroying Islamic governments..For Gods Sake dont let the country burnand Be-Ware of SHIAS..
