Islamic Principle of Justice
'A'isha (RA) reported that the Quraish had been anxious about the Makhzumi woman who had committed theft, and said: Who will speak to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) about her? They said: Who dare it, but Usama, the loved one of Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam)? So Usama spoke to him. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Do you intercede regarding one of the punishments prescribed by Allaah? He then stood up and addressed (people) saying: O people, those who have gone before you were destroyed, because if any one of high rank committed theft amongst them, they spared him; and it anyone of low rank committed theft, they inflicted the prescribed punishment upon him. By Allaah, if Fatima, daughter of Muhammad, were to steal, I would have her hand cut off. In the hadith transmitted on the authority of Ibn Rumh (the words are):" Verily those before you perished."[Muslim]
Somehow our Brothers and Sisters have forgotten these teachings of Islam and seem to be following medieval Christianity as to how they exalted clergy (their scholars) and the Jews on how they exalted their rabbis.
In Islam, the burden of proof required is the same for a laymen as it is for a Mufti.
- It requires evidence to accuse "a2z" of a crime or inappropriate actions
- It requires evidence to accuse "Mufti Abdullah" of a crime or inappropriate actions
Absolutely, no difference in conviction and then there is absolutely no difference in punishment. Once the evidence comes to light then you cannot brush it aside for "Mufti Abdullah" but discuss it for "a2z" all over forums.
You cannot backbite, accuse, slander, presume (to be guilty) when it comes to "a2z" but do the exact opposite when it comes to "Mufti Abdullah.
The "Ulama" who collect donation money (Chanda) are collecting public money, they should be reported to the relevant authorities in their country and let the law take its course just like "a2z" if he was doing something wrong. Half the time, people don't even know how their "Chanda" is being used and what is done with it.
