You don't need jamhoor to tell you that inviting christians into the mosque to sing their hymns of kufr is terribly wrong. Kufr is worse than murder and adultery. Rather the silence is very revealing of the state of this jamhoor. Extreme haraam is taking place openly but not a single word of condemnation. It's as if the punishment and humiliation of the ummah isn't bad enough, so we just go on inventing newer and more horrible ways to invite more of Allah's wrath.

The romans (the judo-christian western alliance) have butchered millions of muslims in just the last decade. Even as we speak, their drones and weapons continue to murder far more than the New Zealand victims. Notwithstanding the genuine concern shown by a portion of the gullible masses of non-muslims, the amount of attention the roman authorities and media are paying to this massacre, which is a drop in the ocean of their mass murders around the world, is sinister to say the least.

In any case, the key question should be, are we earning the pleasure and help of Allah, or are we inviting more of His punishment and wrath by our laissez-faire attitude towards His shariah? It seems clearly the former, and that is the most worrying outcome out of this huge attention paid to this incident by the Zionist media.

- > Why are less people turning towards the effort of Dawat Tabligh compared to the forefathers who began the effort in the western world by migrating from subcontinent under the instructions of their elders? Back then large people turned towards them but what about now?

- > Should we analyze what went wrong? What is the difference between those who are lavishing on the efforts of their forefathers and their own forefathers? What went wrong?

- > Why are the Madarassa not producing such quality students nowadays as they produced in the past? what is missing?

- > So what is exactly missing in the puzzle? Do we need to rewind and fix something that needs to be fixed?

This post has been reported. It could be due to breaking rules or something as simple as bad use of bbcodes which breaks the page format. We will attend to this soon.

Subhanallah!.....

Since the New Zealand massacre:

- Gazza have been continuously bombed

- 134 slaughtered in Mali

- only Allah know the casualties/deaths in China, Kashmir, and Syria

- let’s not forget Yemen.....

No Khutbas?...no TV appearances by our learned scholars?...no outrage?...no crowdfunding pages?

Are we nitpicking who we sympathise for?

An excerpt from Islamic Politics by Shaikh al-Hadith Mawlana Zakariah (rh):

We have closed the doors of mercy upon ourselves and have adopted all those actions which are the sure causes of Allah's wrath.

Is it any wonder that our troubles and problems should not increase and worsen?

Our pious ancestors and elders would not even enter such homes of the non-believers wherein there were pictures. Today we find that we, who came after them, even though claiming to be Muslims have adopted those very unlawful things with which we seek to adorn and beautify our houses.

Consider every teaching of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). See our response thereto and the response of the world around us. You will continue to be increasingly astonished at our disregard of the teachings of Islam!

All that I seek to point out at this stage is that the trials and tribulations we face today are purely as a result of our own doings. It is the cause of our illness and its remedy is supplied by the Rasul of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)- a truthful, trustworthy and expert specialist physician, whose diagnosis and remedial medicine is neither faulty nor will it ever be proven to be incorrect.

This physician has cleary diagnosed our ills and advocated exactly which medicine will be advisable as treatment. Now it is not the work of such a doctor to avoid the causes of the illness nor to treat the illness. If anyone of the patients do not pay attention to the already- given instructions, it is but to his own detriment.

What I want to show here is:

If the Rasul of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) is indeed considered by us to be a truthful informer, what great injustice are we not doing to ourselves by knowingly allowing ourselves to be involved in those things which, according to him, most certainly causes our destruction? Why do we still adopt this line of action which causes ourselves great harm and misery? And yet our tongues still proclaim loudly that we are Muslims?

We are exactly like that sick man who suffers from diarrhoea. While his stomach continues to run because of open bowels, he still continues to takepurgative medicines and laxatives. This further aggravates his illness. Now he complains that his stomach does not stop running.

Let someone ask this foolish man: Dear brother, you treat your diarrhea with purgatives. Tell me: Are these medicines supposed to stop the running stomach or to increase it?

Why this oppression?

At this moment we are protesting against the persecution and oppression of the British colonial power in India.

At the same time we fear even more the future government that will take over (from them.) Did not Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) warn us about this? Did he not in very clear terms explain to us the causes of such goverments and actions? Is there any fault in the affectionate love, teachings and warnings of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)?

May my soul, my father and my mother he sacrificed for him!! Never is it possible that there can be any flaw in his teachings!

He said:

“As you are (as far as your actions are) so will be the rulers that will soon be set over you.” (Mishkat)

Therefore if we desire the best (and most just) government to rule over us, there will be only one way of assuring that. And that is righteous deeds.

Therefore if we desire the best (and most just) government to rule over us, there will be only one way of assuring that. And that is righteous deeds.

In a second Hadeeth it is reported: Abu Darda (Radiallahu anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:

“Allah says: I am Allah besides whom there is no Diety, the Master of Kings, King of Kings. Verily the hearts of kings are under the control of My Hands. When My servants obey me, I turn the hearts of kings and rulers towards them so that they rule over them with mercy and kindness and when My servants disobey Me, I turn the hearts of kings and rulers to treat them harshly, with anger and vengeance. Thereby they mete out torture and oppression. Hence do not occupy yourselves with praying for curses upon kings and instead turn to Me in remembrance and with humility. And I will preserve you against the tyranny of the kings.”

Malik bin Maghool says: “I have read a verse similar to this in the Zaboor of Nabi Dawood (Alayhis Salaam).”

Similar guidance is also given in many similar Ahaadeeth.

On Wisdom in Dawah.


The following is narrated by the late egyptian scholar Shaykh Muhammad al Ghazali رحمة الله عليه

He states (A young woman came to visit me seeking Spiritual advice) ""I did not like the way she was dressed when she entered my office. However, the look in her eyes revealed sadness and bewilderment that called for compassion and patience. She sat down and started sharing her concerns hoping to find answers with me. I listened to her long enough. I learned that she was an Arab girl who received her education in France where she was raised. It was also clear that she barely knew Islam. I started explaining basic facts, dispelling suspicions, answering questions and refuting orientalists’ lies about Islam. I also did not forget to allude to today’s civilization and how it considers women as cheap flesh. At the end of my talk, the girl asked for a future appointment and excused herself.

Soon after, a young man – on whom qualities of Outward Islamism were apparent – came storming into my office and said violently: “How come such wicked person was admitted here?” “The job of a physician is to accept. He doesn’t typically see healthy people, does he?” I replied. “Of course, you advised her to wear Hijab!” he added. I said to him “The issue is much bigger than that. There is the foundation that has to be laid. There is the Belief in Allah and the Hereafter. There is the hearing and the obeying of what was revealed in the Qur’an and the Sunnah, in addition to the pillars of worship and manners; the pillars that Islam cannot exist without …”. He interrupted me saying, “All of this does not mean we don’t order her to wear Hijab”. “I wouldn’t like it if she came in a nun’s clothes while her heart is void of Allah. I taught her the basis that will help her to choose, on her own free will, to wear more decent clothes,” I calmly replied. He tried to interrupt me again so I said firmly “I can’t drag Islam by its tail as you do. I lay the foundation and then start building and I usually achieve what I want with wisdom”.

Two weeks later, the girl came back. She was wearing much more decent clothes with a scarf over her head. She resumed her questions and I resumed my teaching. Then I asked “Why don’t you go to the nearest mosque to your home?” I said that but immediately I felt remorse. I remembered that mosques are closed in the face of Muslim women. The girl answered that she hated the People of Religion and that she did not like to listen to them. “Why?” I asked “They are hard-hearted, and they treat us with contempt and scorn”, came her swift reply. I don’t know why I remembered Hind (Abu-Sufyan’s wife). She was the one who chewed Hamza’s liver and fought Islam vigorously until the 8th year of Hijrah. She did not really know the Prophet (saw). However, when she knew him and saw his lenient manners, she told him “I never wished someone on the face of this earth to be abased more than you and your family. Now, I do not wish to see someone on the face of this earth more honored than you and your family”. The Prophet’s (saw) kindness and sympathy changed the hearts of the people around him. Now, would the Du`ah (preachers) today learn from their Prophet (saw)? Would they learn to draw together instead of driving away, and to bring good tidings rather than to say things that repels people away from them and from Islam?"

We need new ways, easy to understand language and practical approach while imparting ancient knowledge to newer generations. We need to realize this fact that differences between rafya dayn or no rafya dayn is not important. However, the important thing is that are we ready for the current and future challenges faced by Ummah as a whole? Do we become practical and good Muslims by Madrassah education? Do we feel the Islam inside our souls? Or have we just philosophized the knowledge of deen? Do they teach about the ahadith of al fitan in madaris or do they just waste their time in gathering arguments in favour of Hanafi fiqh over others? Is deeni education sectarian or madhab based or is it based upon character building?

Also we need to introduce secular subjects in dars e nizami and produce ulema of all fields not just deeni sciences. Especially we need experts of mass media and social media who can deliver top notch Islamic knowledge to the world with latest techniques and colourful and attractive graphics.

As an example see this.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPwc9aoIiy4

People pay attention to presentation instead of content unfortunately. So with high quality content we need to present it beautifully and in an interesting and engaging way as well. Salafis are doing it. Shias are doing it. Kuffar are doing it. And those who had to master it are just recycling old ways and ancient terminologies with stone age examples.

Keep the ancient knowledge intact but find new and innovative ways to impart it.

Lastly, keep your aims and goals high. If your aim is to just produce imams then be happy with whatever you have already got. However, if your aim is to produce world leaders, then will you try your best in every field. The problem is not lack of resources. The problem is lack of motivation. We were meant to rule. I understand it while you argue with me that Islam is just a religion and we are too weak and blah blah blah.

With the correct motivation people can rise to the best of their abilities. Yet lack of motivation results in inactivity, dullness and laziness. Thoughts become things. So first correct the aqeedah. Islam is deen based upon Shariah and Tareeqah. We need khilafah to set things right. For that we need to rise out of our comfort zone. Realize it and you will find new ways to solve old problems because necessity is the mother of invention. Don't realize it and then keep on rotting.

You can expect that Ashab e Kahaf could preserve their iman but you can't expect that Ashab e Kahaf could lead the world. Currently, most of our ulema are ashab e kahaf. Most of our practicing Muslims are ashab e kahaf.

So first of all correct your aqaid and intention. Then set your goals right. And then work for it because without work and correct work one can't have anything. We need practical tools to build an ummah more than we need science and technology and media is the biggest weapon of current times. Use it efficiently. Don't run from it. Else migrate to the mountains and leave everything and stop complaining.

Nice, all those responsibilities shall fall on madrasah graduates. Well, what motivates a young man possessing those qualities to join a madrasah. To be a "ashab-e-kahaf", to save his Imaan......... Worldly benefits!!! nothing, salaries less than a peon or a street cleaner, privileges less than street cleaner.

Arrange to compensate scholars like a doctor and engineer, then think of getting those responsibilities delivered.

We do lavish spending on our visiting shaykh with his murideen, on visiting elite jamaaths, but our imam, mudarris is ignored. He is a helpless onlooker. I am not stoping anyone from spending on their shuyookh or jamaaths, but along with that take care of scholars around you. With my diverted spending of visit for umrah or second or subsequent haj, I can run a family of a scholar for year.. Also stop spending on beautifying masajid, spend on a person.

Very true. We give dawah to such people. Not to a pious person.
Similar incidents were reported by an Indian shaykh.

Vision differs, One vision is from a close chamber, other vision is of a person on Field

Many of the practicing Muslims are very rich and they can donate to ulema if they can. Again I would say. Set your priorities right and untap the extra ordinary potential of this ummah. Excluding the political part, The social welfare program of Ikhwan ul Muslimeen inspires me a lot. If they can do it then why can't we? Secondly our ulema have to learn the dunia in order to earn it in a halal manner. I am witnessing high school drop outs earning a lot through internet and youtube. Why can't ulema do the same?

The ulema have to sacrifice first and prove that they are worth the investment of the ummah. They have to do something unique even if they are currently not getting good salaries. Computer Department of Jamia Ashrafia and Journalism department of Darul Uloom Karachi are two of the examples. Now adays, when I advise my family and relatives to seek madrassah education then their response is "molvion ne kia hi kya hai?" "What have these ulema done?". People believe in material achievement. There must be technical education in our deeni madaris and religiously educated technical force and business men must be created.

Yes support of the government makes a difference and that is why I have always said this that without khilafah our problems can't be solved. However, do whatever you can do? Just stop complaining for lack of resources and salaries. Imagine if Prophet Muhammad SAWS and the Companions RA would be complaining for lack of resources then would we be Muslims today?

Do whatever you can with what you have got. Internet is available to everyone in affordable costs. If donkey cart owners can have mobile and internet then why can't ulema do something in this field with minimal resources.

If this villager can earn more than 3 lacs a month through youtube living in a village then what is stopping ulema from doing the same?

If a college drop out rikshaw driver can earn six figures then what is stopping madrassah people.

Rely on your own resources
Rely on your own forces.
