Unfortunately, I have to question your sanity or your intention….take a pick!
Whenever there is a split in the Ummah it is never uniform i.e. its never 100% on this side or that side. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be a split would it and it wouldn’t be Fitnah because Haqq will stand manifest from error.
Read Islamic history and you will see it happening.
So no doubt that there will be people will remain Silent and their Silence will be misrepresented or misconstrued as approval by Fitnah-Mongers. There will be those who will try to be neutral for the sake of unity and their neutral stance will also be misrepresented and misconstrued as approval by Fitnah-Mongers. Then there will be those who will misunderstand the issue and side with Baatil (and may Allah forgive them) AND THEN there will be those who will deliberately and for the sake of some gain side with the Baatil and Allah will deal with them.
So when you quote a few Ulama (over exaggerate their importance) and quote that they are backing Maulana Saad Saheb (HA), this is nothing unusual. Take a look at the issue of Peer Zulfiqar and they are doing exactly what you are doing.
Both of your strategy is the same i.e. don’t answer the main question BUT quote random Ulama (exaggerate their rank, stature and position) and show their backing to be a vindication of your position.
I have known Mufti Nawalur-Rahman Saheb (HA) longer then you and I also know what goes on in Chicago on the ground and importantly what has transpired recently.
Your two primary arguments are superfluous and Islamically invalid.
- Nizamudd-deen is no Makkah that you owe your allegiance to a building or a location. There is no sanctity associated with the location
- The personal family and lineage of Maulana Ilyas Saheb (RA) is not Ahlul-Bait of Sayyiduna Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) that homage must be paid to a bloodline.
You know very well the position of Deobandi Ulama and Akaabir on the issue of Maulana Saad Saheb (HA) and by quoting a few random Ulama all you do is damage your own Eemaan and become a gateway to people moving from guidance to deviance.
Maulana Saad Saheb (HA) has NEVER been actively part of Tableeghi Jamaat, NEVER been actively part of proceedings or work and its concerns for years on end.
I think you know that very well.
When I was 19 my Ameer Saheb gave me instructions to NEVER do anything which will become a means of people moving away from guidance to deviance.
Quoting a few random Ulama (and exaggerating their importance) will NOT save your books of deeds on the day of judgement.
I am not insulting you or disrespecting you. I AM warning you for the day when both of us will have to stand in front of Allah and answer for what we say and what we write.
The issue of Maulana Saad, his doings and actions being done on his behalf or by his knowledge in Nizamuddin Markaz are clear as daylight. His actions have damaged the work and thousands around the world still make Dua for this work in the night.
As Shaykhul-Hadeeth (Maulana) Zakariyya (RA) instructed us, “Do you become the target of Bad-Dua of those who take their time and wealth and sacrifice in the path of Allah. If you don’t wish to do the work, don’t do the work BUT don’t become an obstacle in the work because then Allah will deal with you!”
All in all quoting a few random Ulama is NOTING new, every Fitnah-monger does this to show support.
We have nothing to respond to you with except your reckoning on the day of judgement. IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR with what is happening on the ground in Nizamuddin (in detail) then you should either GET INFORMED before your Aakhira is damaged!
