And part of the purpose is that Muadh Khan and Shaikh London should not fight.
Every time a brother of mine feels like having a go at another brother of mine then he should buy two ice creams. And I do not mean e-ice creams. I mean real ice creams. Have one yourself and offer the another to the to your brother - the one at whom you were planning to have a go.

And if you can not do that then go and have an ice cream yourself. May be that will calm down the neurons a bit. There is enough going against Muslims in the present world and you have uncountable channels to divert your energies. Akhirat-Risalat-Tauheed (ART) of Islam was the only thing upon which beloved Prophet (SAW) made no compromise at all otherwise he gave long rope to people to overcome their reservations themselves.

So dear brothers and sisters make it a resolve that you shall not have a spat with your brothers or sisters on matters that are not as vital as the ART of Islam.

Salam,

No, not saudi.
Qatar is better than saudi in many aspects (except for the haramain). I would say, UAE next.

Remembering a Cousin


In the night before last I lost my most dynamic cousin in an accident.

Quote:
A furniture showroom owner was killed when his motorbike was hit by a lorry on Railway Road in Dadri area in Greater Noida, following which an irate mob torched the offending vehicle, police said on Saturday.

The incident took place last evening when furniture showroom owner Yogesh Sharma was riding a scooter, along with his friend. When they reached near the GT Road-Railway Road crossing, a lorry hit the bike killing Sharma on the spot and injuring his friend. The lorry driver fled the spot soon after the accident.

Angry with frequent accidents in the area, locals set the lorry on fire. Superintendent of Police (Rural) Brijesh Kumar Singh rushed to the spot and pacified the mob. In a separate accident, a biker, identified as Salim, was killed after being hit by a speeding canter lorry on GT Road near Dadri last night, police said.


Many people who were devastated because of this single death.
My mother was very livid in wailing - he was her nephew.
(It is not within the capacity of this sinner to implement the Salafi laws of wailing.)
Then there were so many of his sisters.
It was difficult to console even the grown up boys.
His father, one of my maternal uncles, was in the state of shock - no tears came out of his eyes.
The brother-in-law who reached the site of tragedy first and took care of the hospital, police and postmortem procedures broke down after we came back from burial.

He was one of those boys about whom you could rest assured that he will take care of himself.

If he needed help you could count upon him that the request will come with no manipulative maneuvering.

He took very diligent care of his numerous sisters and their families.

Never hesitated to fix an errant brother of cousin.

Kept an eye even on those people who were mean to him and helped them when there was a need and no one in sight to help them.

Waged an unsuccessful but very valiant struggle to get a mosque constructed in his village. ( Refer to the situation in India where the avowed secular country with complete on-paper religious freedom manages to thwart mosque construction.)

He was quite well aware of the personal problems of everyone in the extended family.

Now and then he would be embarrassed, in my presence, because of his lack of training but drive of this self-made man was such that there were no full stops in his life. Except the one a day and a night ago.

May Allah forgive his failings and grant him a high place in Jannah.

Your advice is greatly appreciated maripat saab. With regards to me and muadh. It is nothing personal. We just happen to disagree on the Saudi regime, hazrat worship and a host of other topics. We also agree on a host of topics. That is life.

Holiest Trinity


There are mainly three different and significant groups of chosen people.

Brahmins of India.
Jewis people.
Shias.

After formation of government in India the first thing the RSS ( the most chosen Brahminical organization) inspired ruling dispensation did was to cozy up with Israel.

Then there was this Shia leader who offered his unconditional services to the new rulers in New Delhi.

And now the holiest trinity is in place in India.

Khomeini's Indian origins:

Khomieni's forefathers were from Nishapur (Iran) and had migrated to Awadh (UP, India). However with the advent of British rule in India his paternal grandfather, Seyyed Ahmad Musavi born in Kintoor (Lucknow, India) who was a contemporary of Hamid Hussain Musavi Kintoori Lucknawi decided to visit Najaf (Iraq) and didn't return (back to India).

There he made  acquaintance of a certain Yusuf Khan, a prominent citizen of Khumayn and at some point moved to Khomeyn (Iran) and married the daughter of Yusuf Khan.

As per the usual custom in Arabia and Persia the immigrants from India are called "Hindi" so the family were known as such. Khomeini himself used "Hindi" as a pen name for his earlier Ghazals as can be seen in Divan-I Imam, Tehran, 1372 Sh./1993, p. 50.

The Government of Shah of Iran used their Indian (Hindi) origin to cast Khoemini as a Foreigner while trying to counter the Iranian Revolution.

Source: Hamid Algar (Shia British/American Scholar).

He was Hindi for sure but I am not sure if he was Hindu!

Two Lessons


(1) First Prime Minister of independent India Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru blindly trusted the Chinese. He thought that Indians and Chinese were like brothers. This was expressed in the slogan Hindi-Chini Bhai-Bhai.

In 1962 China attacked India, without provocation, and equally mysteriously withdrew. It was utter humiliation for India.
Some one told this sinner that the Chinese had posted pillars up to Bareilly, not far from Delhi or Aligarh, marking Chinese territory.

Within a year or so Nehru was no more. External events have real internal effects.

(2) Some of my colleagues and fellow Aligs have the view that entrusting Muslims welfare completely to Congress was a Maulana Azad's (and Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Hind's) mistake of the same type. You can not take anything for granted in this world and Maulana Azad and the Jamiat committed this cardinal mistake.


So in hindsight, after seeing the events in the wake of May 16, 2014 results of Indian elections and the subsequent change in the political environment this sinner tends to agree with another Alig - Saleem (Lovey) Peerzada. Lovey Bhai said that these were not fools who took a small country in 1947 and were content with it.

Creation of Pakistan certainly increased the pressure on Muslims who choose to stay in India for they are saddled with the bill but history has born out the fears that were driving the people a few years before the partition of India. But those who escaped the condition that Muslims of India face today can not be blamed for thinking the way they did in their run towards a homeland for themselves. hence this sinner once again apologizes to those Pakistanis whom yours truly might have hurt by earlier analysis of partition of India. Of course supplications for Indian Muslims are earnestly requested.

The lesson is that if you have a weakness or an instability in your analysis and assumptions of a given situation then it will almost certainly come back to haunt you.

There is an instability in the definition of democracy : Suppose the majority decides to do wrong to a minority the who will stop it?

There was an instability in Jamiat and Maulana Azad's assumption: That majority will take care of Muslims in India. The question that was relevant at that time was: Suppose they do not take care of the Muslims then what?

The political scenario in India changed so rapidly on May 16, 2014 after election results that it became meaningless to take stock of the changes on the day to day basis. Forget about Muslims even sensible Hindus felt the need to keep their mouth shut. It was most scary.

And then there was ISIS. I assure you that their rapid advancement in Iraq changed the environment equally rapidly in India. The goons of an RSS inspired political party did beat a District Magistrate to blindness a few days ago but the environment overall is not as scary it it became for a few weeks. May Allah strengthen those who strive in His path.

The US and the Crusades


US inherited the Crusade Mantle from Europe.

That is a mistake.
US made itself independent from British control and thus it should not have inherited the dirty legacy.

In spite of the fact that at practical level the Crusade remarks by junior G.W.Bush were expunged the reality remains that the US does not know where it went wrong.

The US should not look at the Muslim world with the jaundiced eyes of the successors of the crusaders.
It is as simple.

We Muslims have our way of life and it is called Shariah. We might be faltering at the moment but Lord Most High willing we shall keep striving towards it. that is the only good way to live a life and there nothing per say in it that is anti-US. Hence the US can think of a peaceful life with Islam and Muslims and this sinner says it in spite of what they have been doing in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of course the things have to be worked out but the onus is on the US to shed the anti-Islamic mindset. In fact from the situation on the ground it looks that the US no more can overpower the Muslim world. In sense the game is over. Of course major rearrangements are going on right now and they might continue for the rest of twenty first century but one thing is sure that this century does not belong to the US. Theirs was the last one. In fact only the later half of it.

Crusades can serve a good reference point to analyse the current world political situation. By the Grace of Allah (SWT) it looks that Muslims are about to put an end to that hideous movement once and for all.

Taraweeh Tourism


Dr Nadir Ali Khan's sons insisted that this sinner joins the Allama Iqbal Hall Mosque Taraweeh congregation.
Yours truly was hesitant.
Three Parah a day was a bit too much of a regime.
But having joined the band yours truly is happy.
Qari Hafiz-ur-Rahman is simply great.
He treats us with different Qir'ats in the Farz Salah while in Taraweeh he manages to do a few Raka'at with pure elegance of eloquence in recitation. No small achievement in face of the material that has to be covered on the daily basis with the dead line around eleven pm.

Day after tomorrow we shall be done.
After that it will be Taraweeh Tourism for this sinner.
In the first round those mosques will be checked that have got AC this year.
Weather is atrocious and these mosques will have the largest crowds.
And soon the end games will start in various mosques so it will be the time to visit old friends mosques and combine prayers with socialization. Busy times ahead.

And the road to uniform civil code begins..


Fatwas have no legal standing: Supreme Court



Quote:
"Whatever may be the status of fatwa during Mughal or British rule, it has no place in independent India under our constitutional scheme," a bench of Justices Chandramauli K Prasad and Pinaki C Ghose said.




NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that fatwas issued by Shariat courts or muftis had no legal sanctity, asserting that the defiance of fatwas will have no civil or criminal consequences.

The court said it would be illegal to impose these religion-based opinions on personal issues on citizens in violation of their fundamental rights.

"Whatever may be the status of fatwa during Mughal or British rule, it has no place in independent India under our constitutional scheme," a bench of Justices Chandramauli K Prasad and Pinaki C Ghose said.

"Any person trying to enforce a fatwa by any method shall be illegal and has to be dealt with in accordance with law," it added.

There have been bizarre fatwas covering almost the entire spectrum of social life of Muslims - from banning a popular all-girls Kashmiri band leading to its disbanding, to asking Muzaffarnagar's Imrana to treat her husband as her son after she was raped by her father-in-law.

In fact, it was the mushrooming of fatwas, ranging from dissolution of marriage to dress code for women, which led advocate Vishwa Lochan Madan to file a PIL questioning jurisdiction of Shariat courts, Dar-ul-Qaza (personal law courts) and Deoband muftis in dictating social behaviour of citizens and, in the process, virtually setting up a parallel judicial system on issues relating to Muslim personal law.

"A fatwa has no legal sanction and cannot be enforced by any legal process either by the Dar-ul-Qaza issuing that or the person concerned or for that matter anybody. The person or the body concerned may ignore it and it will not be necessary for anybody to challenge it before any court of law," said Justice Prasad, who authored the judgment.

"In case any person or body tries to impose it, their act would be illegal. Therefore, the grievance of the petitioner that Dar-ul-Qazas and Nizam-e-Qaza are running a parallel judicial system is misconceived," the bench said.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) had told the apex court, "Establishment of a network of judicial system throughout the country to help Muslims get their disputes settled by qazis may not have police powers but shall have the book of Allah in hand and Sunnat of the Rasool (saw) and all decisions should be according to the book and the Sunnat. This will bring Muslims to Muslim courts. They will get justice."

But the bench was not amused. It said, "The object of establishment of such a court may be laudable but we have no doubt in our mind that it has no legal status. It is bereft of any legal pedigree and has no sanction in laws of the land."

Though the court said existence of Dar-ul-Qaza and issuance of fatwas were not per se illegal, it clarified that "it is not a decree, not binding on the court or the state or the individual. It is not sanctioned under our constitutional scheme".


It discussed the adverse impact of fatwas on people for whom religion was a matter of unflinching faith in the almighty. "As fatwas get strength from the religion, it causes serious psychological impact on the person intending not to abide by that," the bench said.

The court cited the stand of Deoband Dar-ul-Uloom's stand to emphasize the deep psychological impact of fatwas. The Deoband Dar-ul-Uloom had said, "The persons who are god-fearing and believe that they are answerable to the almighty and have to face the consequence of their doings/deeds, such are the persons who submit to fatwa."

In this context, the court recounted the harrowing tale of Imrana of Muzaffarnagar, UP. "Though neither the wife nor the husband had approached for any opinion, an opinion was sought for and given at the instance of a journalist, a total stranger. In this way, the victim has been punished. A country governed by law cannot fathom it.

"In our opinion, one may not object to issuance of fatwa on a religious issue or any other issue so long as it does not infringe upon the rights of individuals guaranteed under law," it said.

The court said fatwas could cause "immense devastation" and advised Dar-ul-Qazas and muftis not to issue them unless asked for by the person involved or the person having direct interest in the matter. "Fatwas touching upon the rights of an individual at the instance of rank strangers may cause irreparable damage and therefore, would be absolutely uncalled for. It shall be in violation of basic human rights," it said.

Madan had sought a direction to the Union government and states to take effective steps to disband and dissolve all Dar-ul-Qazas and Shariat courts and to ensure that they did not function to adjudicate any matrimonial dispute under Muslim personal law.

He had also requested the SC to quash attempts to "establish a parallel Muslim judicial system" by ordering AIMPLB, Dar-ul-Uloom Deoband and other Dar-ul-Ulooms in the country not to train or appoint qazis, naib-qazis or muftis for "rendering any judicial service of any kind".

Neither Union of India nor AIMPLB denied that Dar-ul-Qazas had been set up and qazis and naib-qazis were trained, who issued fatwas. But they said these were mere alternative dispute settlement forums not in conflict with the existing judicial system.

Dar-ul-Uloom Deoband admitted to issuing a fatwa in Imrana's case as per Fiqah-e-Hanafi, which was based on Quran and Hadith but asserted that it had no agency or power to enforce its fatwas. It was at the discretion of the person concerned to obey the fatwa.
