Maulana Abdul Haleem Chishti (R.A) has passed away due to illness at the age of 94. He was the younger brother of the great Muhadith Maulana Abdul Rasheed Numani (RA), and was a student of Shaykh ul Islam Maulana Hussain Ahmad Madni (RA).
Maulana Chishti (RA) himself was a renowned Muhadith also and he had been the head of the Takhasus Fil Hadith (Specialization in Hadith) department of the Binori Town madrassa in Karachi, in addition to teaching Hadith at Jamiat ur Rasheed.
It is alarming that we are losing Ulama at such a rapid rate. Hardly two days have passed since the Shahadat of Maulana Adil Khan (RA). Pakistan, and particularly Karachi, has lost two great Ulama in the span of two days.
This is not the first time that two renowned Ulama have passed away in a short span of time.
In May, we lost Mufti Saeed Ahmad Palanpuri (RA) and Allama Khalid Mahmood (RA) within a span of five days.
In January 2017, Maulana Saleemullah Khan (RA) and Maulana Abdul Hafeez Makki (RA) passed away on two consecutive days.
In October 1998, Maulana Abdullah (RA) of Lal Masjid Islamabad was martyred and then two days later the scholarly giant Maulana Musa Ruhani Bazi (RA) passed away in Lahore. Interestingly, both Maulana Abdullah (RA) and Maulana Musa Ruhani Bazi (RA) were born in 1935. And fragrance was emitted from the graves of both Ulama. In fact Maulana Musa's (RA) grave emitted fragrance for over seven months.
May Allah Ta'ala grant Maulana Abdul Haleem Chishti (RA) the highest place in Jannat ul Firdaus. Aameen.
Imran Khan’s letter to leaders of Muslim states to act collectively to counter the growing Islamophobia in non-Muslim states especially Western states causing increasing concern amongst Muslims the world over.
In this interview Karan Thapar behaved more or less as Arnab Goswami while interviewing Pakistani Prime Minister's National Security Advisor Mueed Yusuf.
I was waiting for Muadh Khan to do a dissection of this event.
Things are happening very fast around us and are legging behind in comprehending them.
If we can not comprehend the events then we can not react to them.
The result is that our response to the environment is really miserable.
For example in above interview it is apparent that Mueed Yusuf was not ready for Karan Thapar's change of colours and hence he was taken aback and as a result he did not do so well in dealing with the feisty journalist in a full rampaging mood.
I suspect another thing. History in Pakistan is taught along the same lines as in India - the Marxist, communist, leftist, Naxalite or otherwise socialism and liberal democratic point of view.
This view is completely Islamophobic.
And once history is taught in a certain manner to a person then it is impossible to change his world view in the rest of the life.
Muslims in general and Muslim of India and Pakistan in particular have to get their historical perspective right.
Even in Deoband the historical bent of mind is Indian nationalist and that is biased in favour of Congress and against Muslims.
In this bias both Muslims of Pakistan and India are short changed.
Muslims of Pakistan are short changed because they were separatist, entertaining feelings of separatism from the holy land of India.
Muslims of India too are short changed in above narrative - they are simply ignored or blamed for being to weak and submissive to thwart the creation of Pakistan.
As a result the Muslims of Pakistan are constantly apologetic owing to the sin of creation of Pakistan and Muslims of India are too apologetic for their secret sin of not stopping Pakistan - if not harbouring secret wishes for the creation of Pakistan.
India on the other hand has been completely devoted to settle the scores for creation of Pakistan.
They have set Pakistan right in several armed conflicts and they have set the Muslims of India aright by acts of both omission and commission.
In this process no one knows when the hatred of Pakistan got replaced by outright Islamophobia.
This Islamophobia is not an exclusive right of the Saffron bigots but even the so called Lib-Dems have slipped into this.
My problem is that I do not have friends, neither in Aligarh nor on MS, who can be my company in sorting out and analyzing these extremely complex issues that are beyond my individual capacity to fathom.
