BASELESS HARAAM UNITY

BASELESS HARAAM UNITY
By Mujlisul Ulama

Once there was a movement to create unity be-tween Muslims and Hindus. Hindus participated in Muslim customs and vice versa. This is not permissible. It is the effect of mental deficiency. It is in conflict with Allah’s command: “Do not aid in sin and transgression”. It is also in conflict with the Had-ith: “Whoever increases a group is of them.” (Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi)

In some cases it is improper to speak politely to the kuffaar, e.g. when debating with them. Much politeness on such occasions brings disgrace for oneself and for the Deen. For such occasions which call for sternness, the Qur’aan says: “Be stern on them.”

There is a difference between Husn-e-Khulq, i.e. an admirable moral disposition, and Muwaddah, i.e. love / affection. Regarding husn-e-khulq, the Qur’aan says: “Verily you (O Muham-mad!) are on a splendid character.” However, regarding muwaddah (inclining towards them and striking up bosom friendship), the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Those who take the kaafireen as friends besides the Mu’mineen – whoever does so – has no worth by Allah……Whoever from amongst you who befriends them, verily he is of them. Verily, Allah does not guide the zaalimeen transgressors / oppressors).”

Husn-e-Khulq (display-ing good moral conduct) with even Hindus is meritorious while muwaddah with them is prohibited. (Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi)
