The Meaning of the statement: “Sufi has no Madhab”

Islam Reigns

It is said:
ﺍﻟﺼﻮﻓﻲ ﻻ ﻣﺬﻫﺐ ﻟﻪ
“The Sufi has no madhab for himself.”

The Ghair Muqallideen faction loves to quote these and pretend as if like the Auliya Rahimahumullah abandoned following the madhabs, but in reality these particular statement carries a totally different meaning unlike what the “literalist” Ghair Muqalideen make out of it:

Hakimul Ummah Maulana Ashraf `Ali Thanawi Rahmatullah Alaih stated in explanation of the  Statement above:

“This does not mean that the Sufi is one without a school of thought (la madhab) but that he is careful and excercises caution in every matter. This is called piety and God-fearingness. Our fuqaha (the scholars of law) have explained this as well stating that avoiding differences of opinion (khilaf) is recommended (mustahab) as long as doing so does not entail committing a disliked (s: whether ‘slight’ or otherwise; also leaving the difference should not make one fall into…

Sublime “Holiday Spots”

Assalamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

Sublime “Holiday Spots”

A man was on his way to a neighbouring village when an angel suddenly appeared before him. ‘What takes you to this village?’ inquired the angel. ‘To visit a brother whom I love for the sake of Allah,’ was the sincere reply. The angel questioned further, ‘do you have any other motive?’

The man replied ‘No’, upon which the angel exclaimed, ‘I am the messenger of Allah and I assure you that Allah loves you as you love your brother.’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 6495)

At the same time, another angel is deputed to proclaim the following message to him:

“You have done well, your footsteps have been profitable, and you have prepared an abode for yourself in Paradise.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2008)

Allah Ta’ala Himself announces:

“My love is incumbent for the one who loves, visits, or spends on others purely for my sake.”

(Musnad Ahmad, vol.5 pg.233)

Value and Demand

The reason for such abundant rewards could be understood in light of the business principle: Commodities are valued according to demand and availability.

The scarcer a product, the higher the demand and therefore the greater the returns.

The same concept is found in certain aspects of Shari’ah. Those deeds that are seemingly insignificant and seldom practised generally yield a higher reward. People meet daily in the world for various motives, but the practice of loving/meeting someone purely for the sake of Allah is totally foreign to us.

Of the many disastrous ill effects of present-day society is the concept of self-centeredness, where each person cares for himself whilst remaining totally oblivious to the presence and needs of those around him.

Presently, there are many such un-noticed Muslim brothers and sisters that are secluded in old aged homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centres, orphanages etc, who await some kindhearted soul to lift their spirits by paying them a visit. Occasional visits to such places would do us more benefits than harm.

Visiting Allah

One who visits the sick is, so to say, visiting Allah Ta’ala. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “Allah Ta’ala will say to man (on the day of Qiyamah), O my slave, I was sick and you refused to visit me. ’Man will exclaim, O Allah, how could that be possible whereas You are the Lord of the Worlds? ‘Allah will reply, A certain slave of mine was sick, had you visited him, you would have found Me by him” (Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 6501)

If the merit of visiting an ordinary Muslim is such, can one imagine the rewards for visiting those with whom one shares a special bond?

Imagine the honour of joining ties with Allah!

One who maintains family ties is promised the privilege of Almighty Allah joining ties with him, i.e. by means of showing His special mercy, etc. On the contrary, Allah Ta’ala severs ties with those who break family ties. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 7502)

The Wrong Alternative

Nowadays, people choose to spend their spare time frequenting places that are totally immoral and filled with vice and sin, like: the cinemas, casinos, shows, entertainment halls, beaches, parties etc.

The mere presence of a Muslim in such places in the company of immodest people is extremely detrimental to his Iman.

On the contrary, ask yourself the question:

when last did you visit your relatives, your local ‘Alim, an elder of the community, or any fellow Muslim brother purely for the pleasure of Allah?

Visiting the sick, the elderly, the needy, one’s relatives, neighbours or any other Muslim for the sake of Allah was a salient feature in the life of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam). He would even visit such non-muslims, like the ill Jewish lad.

This assisted in bonding the Ummah as well as its expansion.

Today too, especially during the present holiday season, we can achieve all that and more by implementing this important and neglected Sunnah of our beloved Master (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)

Instead of emulating the rest of the world who celebrate the year-end with as much sin as possible, thereby drawing the wrath of our Creator upon mankind.

May Allah Ta’ala protect the Ummah from all fitnah.

THE MUNAAFIQ QAARI AND THE OBNOXIOUS CLOWN QAWWAAL

Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“The majority of the munaafiqeen (hypocrites) of my Ummah are its qaaris.”

“Singing cultivates nifaaq (hypocrisy in the heart) just as water cultivates plants.”

Yesterday (19th April, 2015) we suffered the calamitous misfortune of our city, Port Elizabeth being darkened with the accursed shadows of three faajirs, faasiqs, hypocrites and clowns. The one crank was billed as a ‘famous Qur’aan reciter”. The above quoted Hadith covers this moron reciter. The other moron quack is a performing vile qawwaal who plunders the Names of Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in his songs of nafsaani lust. The third member of the accursed triumvirate is a presenter of Radio Shaitaan, notorious for his filthy, devilish, haraam broadcasts. The venue for the performances of the munaafiq, qawwaal and clown was an outfit, Daarul Jahaalah (the House of Ignorance).

Let it be understood that the singing and the qiraa’t of these unfortunate cranks posing as Deeni personnel are haraam. Whilst the country is aflame, and millions of Muslims suffering all over the world, these senseless morons indulge in haraam merrymaking performances for the haraam boodle and cheap publicity. They pollute the hearts of people and defile the Musaajid with their haraam performances and riya recitals. Entertaining the public with singing is haraam. There is CONSENSUS of all Math-habs on this issue. Singing for public entertainment is HARAAM.

Deceits and crooks attempt to mislead the ignorant and unwary by claiming that such haraam singing is permissible according to the Shaafi’ Math-hab. This is indeed a vile slander flung against Imaam Shaafi’ and the Shaafi’ Fuqaha in general.

The following Hadith explicitly condemns and curses these devilish singers who hoodwink the ignorant masses with the deception of ‘religious’ songs. But these ‘religious’ songs are what is known as Talbeesul Iblees (the Deception of the Devil).

“Safwaan Bin Umayyah (radhiyallahu anhu) narrated that Amr Bin Qurrah said (to Rasulullah – sallallahu alayhi wasallam): ‘I am very unfortunate. I do not see any way for acquiring my rizq except by means of my duff. Therefore, grant me permission to sing such songs which will be devoid of any immorality.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:”I do not give you permission. There is no honour and no goodness (in what you are saying about singing). O Enemy of Allah! You are a Liar! Most certainly, Allah has ordained for you halaal rizq, but you have chosen what Allah has made haraam for you in place of what He has made halaal for you of the nourishment He has ordained for you.” (Baihqi, Tabaraani, Dailami).

Entertaining the public with even so-called ‘religious’ songs devoid of immorality (fisq and fujoor) is haraam. This accursed triumvirate of clowns, in the words of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) are the “enemies of Allah”. They are “liars”, frauds and crooks, plundering the Akhlaaq and destroying the Imaan of ignorant Muslims who flock to these clownish shows and performances for the acquisition of lustful gratification.

Imaam Shaafi (rahmatullah alayh), denouncing these fraud and heretical qawwaals, said: “I left behind in Iraq something which the zanaadiqah (heretics – a class of kuffaar who believe that they are Muslims) have introduced. They call it taghyeer. With it they divert people from the Qur’aan.”

Taghyeer is qawwaali type of singing extolling Allah Ta’ala. It refers to the so-called ‘religious’ songs with which the clown-qawwaals dupe people, taking their minds away from Allah Ta’ala by deception, tricking them into hallucinating that their corrupt spirits are soaring in sublimity in the celestial realms of the Angels, whilst in reality shaitaan is blowing his rijs into their nostrils and excreting in their ears and brains. Imaam Shaafi’ (rahmatullah alayh) branded them zanadiqah (kaafirs-heretics).

Imaam Shaafi’ (rahmatullah alayh) also said: “Singing (ghina) is Makrooh (Tahrimi) lahw (amusement). Whoever engrosses in it is a fool. His testimony is rejected (in an Islamic court).”

Qaadhiyul Qudhaat, Abu Bakr Muhammad Ibn Muzaffar Shaami said:

“Neither is singing permissible nor is it permissible to listen to it, nor drumming with sticks. Whoever attributes permissibility to Ash-Shaafi’ has lied. Indeed, Ash-Shaafi said in his Kitaab, Adabul Qaadhi,that one who persists on listening to singing, his testimony (shahaadat) must be rejected and his integrity (adaalat) would be vitiated.”

Ibn Hajar Haitami (Shaafi’) states: “In two places of Imaam Raafi’s Kitaab, Ash-Sharhul Kabeer, it is mentioned with clarity: ‘Singing is Haraam.’ In Raudhah, Imaam Nawawi adopted this view.”

Explaining with great clarity the prohibition of the type of haraam qiraat-qawwaali gatherings organized for the triumvirate of clowns and cranks, Allaamah Ibn Hajar (rahmatullah alayh) sates:

“Qurtubi (rahmatullah alayh) narrated from Imaam Tartusi (rahmatullah alayh) that he was asked about those people who gather at a place and begin the proceedings with Tilaawat of the Qur’aan-e-Kareem. Thereafter one person stands up and sings some poetry. Then all present lapse into ecstasy and begin swaying (in a form of a dance) simultaneously beating the duff. Is it permissible to join this company of people?

He (ImaamTartusi) replied: ‘According to the Akaabir Sufiya’ this practice is highly erroneous and deviation. Islam means only Kitaabullah and the Sunnat of the Rasool (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). It is never permissible for any person who has Imaan in Allah and the Aakhirah to join such people nor aid them in this unlawful practice. This is the Math-hab of the Four Imaams and of other Mujtahideen. Some people cite the stories of the Mashaaikh in substantiation of dancing and singing………..

The most important argument in this regard is that we do not believe that these stories (which are attributed to the Mashaaikh) are true. It is quite probable that just as the zindeeqs have attributed many fabrications to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), so too have they done with regard to the Mashaaikh. On the assumption that the Mashaaikh did practise these deeds, which obviously they did not, then it should be understood that for us proof is firstly Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), then the Sahaabah, then the Aimmah-e-Mujtahideen…”

Hafiz Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani categorically confirms, by quoting Allaamah al-Qurtubi, that there is no difference of opinion regarding the prohibition on what the deviant sufis have innovated in this regard:

“As for what the Sufis have innovated in this regard, then there is no difference (of opinion)regarding its prohibition. However, the souls full of desire have overcome many people who have attributed themselves to righteousness, to the extent that many of them practiced the acts of lunatics and children. They would dance in uniform motions and continuous abrupt stops. Their disrespect reached a level where some of them considered these actions to be among deeds that draw one closer (to Allah), a righteous action that will earn them an exalted state. In reality, this is from the ways of the disbelievers, and the sayings of the insane, and Allah is the one from Whom we seek aid.” End of Qurtubi’s quote. (Fath al-Bari, vol. 2, p. 570-571, no. 949)

This clinches the argument. The qiraat-qawwaali merrymaking party of the three clowns held at Daarul Jahaalat is among the major sins. People of true Imaan should never participate in such evil merrymaking functions.

All the spurious arguments of the legalizers of singing are adequately answered in our book, Sautush Shaitaan (the Voice of Shaitaan). The book is available from us.

The abode of such qaaris who perform for public entertainment is Jubbul Huzn (The Pit of Grief). Explaining Jubbul Huzn, the Hadith says:

It is not permissible to attend a gathering where a faasiq qaari recites. Shaving the beard is a kabeerah sin which renders the man a faasiq. Every moment the ghadab and la’nat of Allah Ta’ala descend on a person who is beardless as a result of shaving his beard.

To attend such a gathering is to honour the faasiq. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When a faasiq is honoured, the Arsh of Allah shudders.” Furthermore, these qaaris with their belief that it is permissible to shave the beard are guilty of bid’ah, and regarding a man of bid’ah, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “He who honours a man of bid’ah, aids in the demolition of Islam.”

When one goes to listen to the qiraa’t of a faasiq qaari, one is in fact honouring him. The faasiq is given front stage, musaafahah (shaking hands) and muaanaqah (embracing) are made with him. He is respectfully addressed. In general he is treated as a guest of honour. Whoever denies this fact, is a liar. Thus the contention that he is not honoured is baseless. Regardless of whether one has the intention of honouring or not honouring, the mere attendance of the function is to aid, support and honour the faasiq qaari who shows absolutely no shame for Allah Ta’ala and the Makhlooq. The actions of the people clearly testify that they are honouring him.

Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that in Jahannam there is a valley which daily petitions Allah Ta’ala 400 times to save it from the heat of that valley. The name of this valley in the dregs of Jahannum is Jubbul Huzn. When the Sahaabah asked about those who are destined for entry into this terrible Valley of Torment, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that Jubbul Huzn has been prepared for the Qaaris who display their a’maal. This will be the ultimate destination of fussaaq qaaris who barter the Qur’aan Majeed for this dunya.

The miserable plight of such qaaris is aggravated manifold when their evil is supplemented by the evil of the satanic qawwaali singer who forms part of the shaitaani show. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Recite the Qur’aan. Do not eat with it.”

Do not make the Qur’aan a source for raking in boodle. This is the profession of the munaafiq qaaris. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“The life of this world is but play and amusement, and the Abode of the Aakhirah is best for those who fear (Allah). What have you no intelligence?”

The Threat of Islamophobia… Within the Muslim World!

The Independent published an article a while back called “Coverage of Muslims and Islam in UK media is mostly negative, study finds.” This article was based on a 162-page study:

The report by the Centre for Media Monitoring analysed more than 48,000 online articles and 5,500 broadcast clips from 34 media organisations that mentioned Islam and Muslims between 2018 and 2019.

The study, commissioned by the Muslim Council of Britain, found that almost 60 per cent of articles portrayed Islam negatively and one in five associated the faith with terrorism or extremism.

This is, of course, nothing new.

There have been many books and research articles compiled and published in relation to the Islamophobia industry, and while the majority of these focus on the US and especially the War on Terror, there have been specific studies pertaining to Islamophobia in the UK as well. One example is Leonie B. Jackson’s Islamophobia in Britain: The Making of a Muslim Enemy. Within this book, the author traces British Islamophobia back to colonialism and Orientalism (so way before 9/11), and she examines the issue mainly through the lens of Critical Race Theory.

Basically, everyone knows about Western Islamophobia, though timely reminders that often show up in the form of these studies are still very much welcome. Western Islamophobia could even be considered to be somewhat “expected” (since after all, Islam stands against their liberal world-system), but when have you ever seen anyone talking about the Islamophobia found… within the Muslim world?

“Indigenous Islamophobia”?

In 2018, Routledge released a book with an intriguing title: Islamophobia in Muslim Majority Societies. The book was edited by Farid Hafez and Enes Bayrakli. The work is a compilation consisting of chapters written by various authors, all pertaining to Islamophobia within different geographical locations in the Muslim world (Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey, Albania, and so on).

As we’re not doing a complete book review, we’ll just be presenting a select few representative excerpts.

In chapter 4, Syed Furrukh Zad Ali Shah writes about how Pakistan’s elite promotes blatant Islamophobia through their secular and modernist projects:

Pakistan, with a 97 per cent Muslim population and a declared Islamic Republic, has a smaller, yet formidable section of society that corresponds to Islamophobic currents. These Westernized secular power elites share similar anti-Islam sentiments, rooted in traditional Western discourses of secularism and modernity. Furthermore, modern resurgence of political Islamism and its conflation with violence also demonizes the religion in general, which is embedded in local cultural traditions and social customs. Religion that is seen as anti-modern and irrational has to be disposed of if society is to be reformed and modernized.[1]

And as the author demonstrates, this is not something restricted only to Pakistan. Rather, it extends to pretty much any Muslim country where the “post-colonial” elite ironically believes that “development” is attained by force, in the same way that colonialists tried to implement it.

To highlight a single example, think of the emphasis placed on “girls’ education.” And then there’s the fact that this “education” absolutely must take place in a secular setting—not a madrasah, never!—and obviously, following Western ideals and values.

RELATED: Become Feminists or Starve! The UN Pushes Girls Education in Afghanistan

In chapter 9, Sahar El Zahed examines the “internalized Islamophobia” in the Egyptian media.

You’d assume that such a thing wouldn’t happen in a country where around 90% of the citizens are Muslims, but the author shows how Islam is constantly associated in the mainstream media with “violence,” “backwardness,” etc., and this is something that has intensified significantly since Sisi usurped power in 2014.

In fact, one of the most Islamophobic quotes that she presents is from Sisi himself, from “a speech at Al-Azhar University during the anniversary of the Prophet” :

I am referring here to the religious clerics. We have to think hard about what we are facing – and I have, in fact, addressed this topic a couple of times before. It’s inconceivable that the thinking that we hold most sacred should cause the entire umma [Islamic world] to be a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world. Impossible! That thinking – I am not saying ‘religion’ but ‘thinking’ – that corpus of texts and ideas that we have sanctified over the centuries, to the point that departing from them has become almost impossible, is antagonizing the entire world. It’s antagonizing the entire world! Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants – that is 7 billion – so that they themselves may live? Impossible![2]

Consider the occasion. Consider the place. He couldn’t possibly have found a better time to describe Islam as a—if not the—source of all of humanity’s problems!

As a thought exercise, it may also be interesting to reproduce this notion of “indigenous Islamophobia” with secular rulers and “decolonial privilege.” Imagine a “White imperialist” using the exact words used by Sisi. He would be lambasted. But a Brown man with a name that sounds Islamic can somehow get away with openly saying such things; or banning the Hijab; or changing the language’s script, etc., all in the name of “modernity” (which is itself the product of the “White imperialist”). Yet for some reason, he’ll face no significant opposition. In fact, he might even be praised as a “leader” or as the “father of the nation”!

RELATED: Mustafa Kemal Ataturk: The Man Who Tried to Destroy Islam

Islamophobia is universal because liberalism has become universal as well (through “globalization”) and found willing allies (the loyal minions that are propped up as our so-called “elite”) within the Muslim world.

Allah says in the Noble Qur’an (4:137-140):

As to those who have believed, then disbelieved, then believed, then disbelieved, then increased in disbelief—never will Allah forgive them. Nor will He guide them to [the right] way.

Give [heavy] tidings to the hypocrites, [as well,] that for them there is a most painful torment [awaiting in the Hereafter.

For they are] the ones take the disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek from them the indomitable protection of might? For verily Allah possesses all might soever!

Moreover, [recall that] He has already sent down to you [a commandment] in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah being belied and mocked at [by people], then do not sit with them until they take up some other discourse. [For,] indeed, you would then be like them. Indeed, Allah shall gather the hypocrites and disbelievers in Hellfire, all together.

The Sinister Agenda Behind the Joyland Movie Being Pushed onto Pakistan’s Muslims

There is a movie called Joyland that has caused immense uproar among Muslims in Pakistan, mainly for being a movie made by liberal Pakistani filmmakers who, after winning a gay award at a pretentious film festival, aim to import this filth over:

Joyland is set in Lahore city in Pakistan’s eastern province of Punjab and depicts the story of a young man who falls in love with a transgender woman. It debuted at the Cannes festival earlier this year, where it received accolades, including the Jury Prize as well as the Queer Palm award.

The director of this movie, Saim Sadiq, is extremely liberal. And considering that he graduated from Columbia University School of the Arts, it’s easy to see why his worldview mirrors that of the average brainwashed liberal. He is specifically ‘inspired’ to make movies about transgenders. One of the main production houses behind this film was Khoosat Films, headed by a famous Pakistani actor, Sarmad Khoosat. This production company has been responsible for other popular liberal films in Pakistan. Examples include Motorcycle Girl, a movie promoting the feminist agenda; Zindagi Tamasha, a movie about a religious elderly man who, after being recorded dancing at a wedding, has his video go viral and faces ‘oppressive societal repression’ from Muslims; and Kamli, another film peddling feminism.

Let’s start by examining the actual plot of the movie, Joyland, so we can ascertain whether or not the severe criticisms against it are justified.

The movie revolves around the Rana family, which includes the old ‘patriarchal’ head of the family whose wife has passed away, as well as his two sons and their wives. The youngest son is impotent, due to which he is unable to please his wife. He goes on to join a theater as an erotic dancer and falls in love with a transgender ‘woman,’ i.e., another man. While the movie follows this gay relationship, the other members of the family are revealed as having forbidden urges of their own. The wheelchair confined patriarch starts a relationship with his neighbor, and the elder son does has an affair with his younger brother’s wife, which results in her becoming pregnant.

This perverted and dysfunctional family is the movie’s depiction of traditional Muslim households in countries such as Pakistan. The movie is basically saying this is what all our fathers and mothers; all our brothers and sisters; and all our husbands and wives are like.

I cannot even begin to fathom how any sane person would take any of this seriously or consider it to be an accurate representation of reality. On the other hand, since the content of a movie directly reflects the views and ideologies of its director and writer, this movie offers a great deal of insight into the inner workings of the mind of a liberal Pakistanis.

The idea of sexual liberation is one of the primary tenets of liberalism. It is for this reason that unsuspecting liberals have been indoctrinated into believing that suppression in the form of religious taboos naturally leads to everyone living within a religious society being sexually corrupt to their very core; and that they are always thinking and acting upon various forbidden and degenerate fantasies. Every other person’s son is a homosexual who loves trans ‘women,’ i.e., men, and every other man lusts for his brother’s wife. This metanarrative is present at the heart of liberal movies and mainstream media, and it is an attempt to justify a degenerate society by pointing at a pure society and saying:

“You may act pure, but deep down, we know you’re just like us! We might not have any actual proof whatsoever to back up such a claim, but we’ll go ahead and make endless movies about it regardless!”

It’s the liberal world’s way of seething and expressing their hatred for pure, traditional Islamic communities. And unfortunately, the Muslims that have been indoctrinated into this worldview also end up believing that the only natural solution to this non-existent problem is for a sexual revolution to take place, just like the one experienced by the Western world decades earlier.

RELATED: How “Sexual Revolution” Gave Rise to Nazism

If everyone was allowed to mix freely with the opposite gender and act upon every sexual fantasy they had; and if society didn’t condemn and censure these immoral and degenerate actions and behaviors, then the world would be a much better place, and no one would be depressed or unhappy.

And the reason they don’t recognize these acts and behaviors as being immoral and degenerate is because of another one of liberalism’s core tenets: you can do whatever you want, as long as you’re not harming anyone. The reality however, is that these liberals don’t realize how they themselves don’t abide by this principle. There are numerous examples of things where no harm is involved which they would not tolerate. Things such as bestiality, necrophilia, incest and a consensual relationship between a child and an adult. When it comes to such scenarios, the ‘love is love’ principle is quickly thrown out the window, and their inner moral compasses awaken.

However, this may not be the case for much longer, since the degeneracy is increasing at an alarming rate with the constant social engineering and brainwashing taking place. They only tolerate the immorality that the liberal world has normalized thus far. Things like homosexuality, premarital and extramarital sex, orgies, etc., are all okay because the liberal culture one day decided it’s okay. This is the deep rooted hypocrisy that the liberal mind fails to perceive.

And while they push for a sexual revolution to take place in Muslim countries, they’re completely oblivious to the damage it caused in the West, where you now have a hedonistic satanic society filled with all kinds of deranged fetishes; where marriage is at an all-time low, the existing ones end in divorce; where homosexuals are allowed to adopt children; where transgenders are allowed to get close to children and explicitly explain their filthy lifestyle to them, often even putting on a perverted and disgusting performance or wearing clothes that reveal their genitals; and where parades filled with all kinds of sexual deviants walking the streets naked are praised as being ‘brave.’ This society, with all its sexual perversions and its consumerist lifestyle, has plunged itself deep into the depths of depression, where the only thing keeping them going is a steady stream of alcohol and antidepressants. This is the lifestyle that these liberals hide but are ultimately pushing for, in ‘the name of art,’ when they defend and promote movies such as Joyland.

Preventing and stopping such filth is precisely the purpose of the societal shunning of immorality and degeneracy. This is an inherent behavioral action that humans implement in order to bar indecent things from taking place, or from spreading within society. If you don’t want people to steal, you depict thieves in a negative light. You teach kids that stealing is wrong and harmful, and society looks down upon thieves. You also include a punishment to discourage the act further. This is why Islam is the perfect model for mankind. Not only does it forbid immoral sexual acts, it mandates public punishments for those who indulge in them. This then discourages their occurrence from society in the most effective way possible. Cheating on spouses, Zina, rape, false allegations and homosexuality would be at the lowest possible level if the Shari’ah were to be implemented fully and correctly. It would ensure that the greater good is achieved for society.

Then the liberals always fall back on sexual needs. Yes, humans have intimate and sexual needs. Men need women and women need men. That’s basic biology. Marriage fulfills this need. And not only does marriage fulfill this need, it enhances it by committing the husband and wife to each other. He has to lower his gaze from non-Mahram (marriageable) women and she has to cover herself up and not interact with non-Mahram (marriageable) men, in addition to staying within the home. They both fulfill their God-given gender roles, have children, and they all thrive as a result of this. This only deepens their love and brings them closer to each other. This natural way of life, one that has existed for all of human history, has been completely warped in the minds of liberals. They see it as nothing more than a social construct which leads only to oppression and misery. This warped image has been disseminated through years of social engineering, through movies and media. Just look at the disgusting way in which marriage is portrayed within this movie as well as all the forms of modern media that we consume today.

You’ll see depictions upon depictions of wives being compared to caged birds and described with derogatory terms such as ‘baby making machines’; the portrayal of husbands being unrepentant alcoholic wife beaters who don’t care about their wives and are completely incapable of pleasing their wives in anyway whatsoever; and the struggle of the wife to break free from all this fictional oppression. The modern scantily clad prostitute is depicted as being better than a traditional housewife. It is shown that there could be nothing worse than a woman being a traditional housewife, living in a traditional marriage. Consumption of such content has turned a ceremony that was once eagerly awaited by youngsters—especially young women—into a prospect that now terrifies them instead. In fact, getting a liberal education, consuming mainstream media and watching modern movies and documentaries is directly correlated with fear of marriage. And then these same liberals, after being afflicted with this agenda, have the audacity to claim that such movies harbor no agendas against Islam or family values.

When the elites want something to happen, they simply pay for it. The biggest proof of the dark agendas behind Joyland lies in its funding. And it is no surprise that Joyland is the first Pakistani movie to have an all American funding. When foreign investors actively push for a movie about liberal values and sexual degeneracy to be made and released within a Muslim country, what does that tell you? Does it not reek of the well-known liberal formula of indoctrination through mainstream media and entertainment? And for those who all-out reject the notion of media as a tool of social engineering, just take a look at what Israel’s former PM, Benjamin Netanyahu, has to say:

Citing the hundreds of thousands of satellite television dishes in Iran, Benjamin Netanyahu told the House Government Reform Committee that the United States could incite a revolution against the conservative Iranian clergy through the use of such Fox Broadcasting staples as “Melrose Place” and “Beverly Hills 90210” — both of which feature beautiful young people in varying states of undress, living, glamorous, materialistic lives and engaging in promiscuous sex.

In the past this kind of brainwashing was difficult to achieve because you had to actually conquer or infiltrate a land before being able to influence its youth. But now, in the age of technology, the internet and social media are very easy to manipulate avenues in order to spread liberal ideologies. Especially when it’s the liberal world order that controls what constitutes mainstream internet, where they can promote what they want and censor what they want.

In addition to all of this, the infamous Malala Yousafzai has now joined the Joyland team as an executive producer. For those who don’t know, executive producers are responsible for dealing with the legal, financial and marketing aspects of a project. Yes, this Western puppet who pushes for feminism in order to eradicate family values from Muslim societies is responsible for this movie’s financing. The amount of Fitnah this person has generated among young Muslim women by blindly leading them into the pit of toxic feminism is unreal. I highly urge reading this article by Muslim Skeptic in order to get an idea of the extent of the damage that she has done. So, when someone like this finances a filthy movie like Joyland, it should be very clear that the agenda is to turn Muslims into liberals that will eventually leave Islam altogether; and to spread Fitnah and corruption among Muslims. This movie is exactly what Malala denies it being: activism posing as art.

It’s also worth mentioning that it seems to be too much of a coincidence that this movie comes out just a short while after the Transgender Bill in Pakistan suffered well-deserved backlash from Muslims after being brought into the public eye. Feminism was already being heavily pushed in Pakistan, but now the wealthy elites hiding behind the scenes seem to have a particular obsession with pushing transgenderism and homosexuality. It makes sense, as both feminism and homosexuality go hand in hand. Both are meant to make men more feminine and women more masculine, with the ultimate goal being the breaking down of the family unit so both can be controlled more easily.

This brings me to the next point, which is the backlash. And Alhamdulillah, once again, many Muslims both within and outside of Pakistan showed that their Fitrah and their desire to defend Islam is alive and well. They took Twitter by storm with the hashtag #BanJoyland, rightfully admonishing the movie and its makers; and sharing verses and reminders of the punishment that was sent on Qawm Lut, warning of the consequences that Pakistan might face if this movie is released. And this outrage wasn’t just confined to Twitter. Many complaints were sent directly to Pakistan’s Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC):

“A surge of applications and petitions were received [against Joyland],” Aurangzeb said. “When petitions are received, it is binding to review them,” she added.

“To my surprise, I was told by the censor board that they were [applications] received from middle-class people and parents,” the minister said.

And as a result, the movie was banned from screening. The Information Ministry of Pakistan declared it to be “repugnant to the norms of decency and morality,” and it was ruled as uncertified for screening in cinemas. But, as usual, the vocal liberal minority erupted and took to screeching about it on Twitter, now with the hashtag #ReleaseJoyland. If they were alone in this, the matter would’ve been settled, but they had the backing of not only mainstream media but the government of Pakistan itself. Articles by popular Pakistani mainstream media such as Dawn and Tribune have published articles vehemently defending Joyland, writing sob stories about how sad it is that all this so-called art is being suppressed. Oh my god, homosexuality won’t be aired in theaters and we can’t glue the eyes of Muslims to the screen and feed them this filth—I mean, art—how very SAD! The filmmakers behind Joyland will certainly gobble all of this up and play the victims.

Here’s a tweet from a journalist who attempts to use the intentional confusion inserted into the trans bill, where intersex and transgenders are defined under the same umbrella, to defend the movie:

RELATED: Pakistan’s Transgender Bill: How Liberalism Is Being Forced Onto Muslim Society

This confusion has been one of the two main arguments utilized by liberals in their attempts to defend this movie. It seems like they just pick up whatever arguments the mainstream media is making, without actually thinking for themselves. Intersex people are those who are born with ambiguous sexual genitals and characteristics, but can still be classified as being one specific gender. It’s common knowledge that people who are born intersex are extremely rare because the genetic mutations that lead to such conditions are extremely rare. Their sex is officially assigned very early on depending on a number of factors. The majority of the Khwaja sira community consists of transgenders, i.e., men pretending to be women that are simply imitating women. This is something that the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) has cursed.

’Abdullah ibn ’Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates:

Allah’s Messenger ﷺ cursed the women who imitate men and the men who imitate women. (Jami’ al-Tirmidhi)

As for their other main argument that they’re flaunting about, it is the same as when the Trans Bill controversy arose. They say that since a transgender woman is not a man, for a transgender woman to have a relationship with a man is not homosexuality. To those select few who actually believe this, I suggest reading any elementary level biology textbook; an actual book of Islamic law; and maybe try making use of this great thing called common sense. This is not even a point worth refuting, but I mention it here only to demonstrate the blind absurdity that some of these liberals are submerged in.

Here’s another tweet. This one is from the Human Rights Comission of Pakistan (HRCP), calling the Pakistani government “rabidly transphobic” for banning Joyland:

In fact, even the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shahbaz Sharif, couldn’t sit still at the thought of all the oppression and hate these ‘artists’ were facing for their supposed ‘art’:

Pakistan’s prime minister has ordered a review of the ban on the country’s Oscar entry, the movie Joyland, days after the measure was imposed, one of his advisers said.

Here’s the tweet where this adviser, by the name of Salman Sufi, revealed this information:

I’m astounded as to how amidst all the flooding and displaced homes that have taken countless lives in Pakistan; amongst all the corruption and increasing crime; poverty; inflation; and rapidly declining value of the Pakistani rupee, its government makes sure to divert their time and resources towards what according to them is apparently the REAL problem, i.e., preventing the suppression of art. To all the liberals reading this, ask yourselves, why does the government care so much about releasing this film in their country? Who is controlling them? Is the agenda still not obvious enough?

As a result of the government’s intervention, and despite all the strong opposition to it, it was re-reviewed by the censor board committee and surprisingly enough, the ban against Joyland was lifted. However, the backlash still continued, and many authorities who aren’t having their strings pulled, still realize just how wrong it is for this movie to be aired. Thus the movie was once again banned by the Punjab government, and a petition seeking the banning of the film has also been filed by the Peshawar High Court (PHC). The situation remains in this shaky back-and-forth state, but it is quite clear that the overwhelming majority of Muslims in Pakistan have completely denounced this filthy, degenerate film and want absolutely nothing to do with it.

With information technology rapidly progressing and with these powerful groups finding newer ways to attack Islam, it is reassuring to see many young Muslims waking up to the dangers surrounding them and strongly opposing it, because it’s the Muslim youth today that are going to be role models for Muslims of the next generation. Whether it be the Aurat March, the Domestic Violence Bill, the Transgender Bill, or Joyland, Allah will expose all of their plots, and with Allah’s permission, the Muslims will remain vigilant, in sha Allah.

2022 FIFA World Cup: Deception and Distraction

By Mufti Abdullah Moolla -November 22, 2022

Misdirection is a word used commonly by lay people. In relation to art and magic it is a term used by entertainers, tricksters, magicians, and sorcerers. The common person mistakenly assumes this word ‘misdirection’ to imply ‘distraction.’

For example, a common person will shout out ‘hey’ on the street, and while their target is distracted, the very same person who shouted ‘hey’ snatches the wallet, bag, money, purse, or phone off their distracted target. Then you have the entertainer, who will distract their audience and carry out their trick or act of entertainment while the attention of the onlookers is focused elsewhere.

One of the potent methods employed by entertainers, magicians, tricksters, storytellers, and media houses is to tell the audience a story that they can tell themselves, pacify their consciences and promote to others, without really knowing that they were distracted. The entertainers and magicians offer some sort of explanation to their thrilled audiences, but the tricks are played upon the minds of the audiences and not the objects themselves. If the evidence according to the senses is believed, then the ‘magic’ in the mind is made real.

‘Misdirection is the cornerstone of nearly all successful magic’ – TA Waters

In the same way, within this modern and refined age, non-Muslims whose religions frown upon magic and sorcery, are now embracing magic and sorcery wholeheartedly as part of the package of misdirection employed by scientists. The scientists narrate their stories in light of scientific ‘evidence,’ whilst the reality lies somewhere else. An example of the misdirection offered to the world is the Theory of Evolution. While millions (including misdirected Muslims) believe in the scientific ‘evidence’ presented to them, it is a far cry from the truth. In fact, it is simply a lie against Allah Ta’ala, the Noble Qur’an, the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and the religion of Islam.

In essence, the refined society of the twenty-first century has fallen for more refined sorcery and magic.

As we write this, the entire world seems to be engulfed in pacifying their consciences, telling themselves that everything is well and good while they are kept entertained by a ball being kicked around a pitch. What makes matters worse is when highly educated people and scholars fail to recognize the misdirection that they have fallen prey to.

The misdirection being offered to Muslims is of the host country (Qatar) providing various means and methods to propagate Islam and calling to the faith. This is nothing but misdirection. We are told that the Ahadith will be displayed in all corners, Muezzins have been employed to call the Adhan beautifully, and it will be relayed and heard in stadiums and so on.

RELATED: Why is US National Soccer Antagonizing Qatar with Pro-LGBT Crest?

Let us look at a few basic examples of the misdirection being explained. Firstly, it is not permissible for the Adhan to be called out and for the Noble Qur’an to be recited in the restroom, or in a sewage facility. This is severe disrespect to the words of Allah Ta’ala and His blessed name. A ring that has the name of Allah Ta’ala engraved upon it cannot be taken into the toilet, and books of Islam and the Sirah cannot be distributed inside a nightclub. In the same way, it is utter and gross disrespect to the entire religion of Islam for the Adhan to be relayed in stadiums, where every vice is perpetrated.

No Muslim in his right sense of mind can imagine justifying the sorts of vices that are done during major sporting tournaments such as the World Cup. Yet, we find misdirected Muslims and misdirected Muslim scholars who feel the need to appreciate the da’wah work being done during the course of the World Cup. We find it difficult to understand how Qatar saw the need to provide this misdirection service to the millions of people who have come to their country for entertainment, drinking and adultery.

We do not appreciate this kind of da’wah work, as it is not a call to pure and pristine Islam, but it is simply a ruse to pacify the suffering Muslim Ummah. Qatar has fallen to the pressure and has bent over backwards to entertain the vices of the entire non-Muslim world. This is while Muslims look on in horror as they see their homes being torn down; their mothers and sisters raped; and their sons slaughtered by the very same visitors they want to please. Qatar is only promoting the Liberalized version of Islam that the football body will be pleased with. This is the misdirection that Qatar is responsible for. For this reason, Qatar does not deserve any du’a or sympathy from the Muslim Ummah.

RELATED: Qatar: How the World Cup Is Being Used to Spread Liberalism to Muslims

We rue the immense wastage of money on a tournament that brings nothing but destruction in its wake.

Think for a moment before an outburst upon what you have just read. Reflect. Have you not been misdirected by all the hype around the World Cup too?

Our du’a and plea is to Allah Ta’ala, we beg Him for His aid and help. And we call for one and all to look deeper into the misdirection that they have been fed, and to refrain from promoting this misdirection any further.

PROSTITUTES, NOT PURDAH WOMEN

Posted on 

THEY ARE LESBIANS AND PROSTITUTES, NOT PURDAH WOMEN

Commenting on the lewdness of the so-called ‘purdah’ women, a Brother writes:

Asalaamualaikum respected Ulama.

Many women nowadays wear the Purdah.

However, we see them adopting some weird ways of the devil regarding wearing of the Purdah:

  1. When they drive their cars, they lift the Purdah up
  2. They take photographs with their Purdah on?
  3. They appear in social media posts and pictures with their Purdah on.

It is clear that this act of wearing the Purdah has not permeated their hearts as to what it really means to be in Purdah.

I’m not sure if the Mujlisul Ulama is aware of a story of a pious woman in an era gone by who only left her home on 3 occasions:

  1. When she got married and left her father’s home to her husband’s home
  2. When she went for Hajj
  3. When she went from her husband’s home to her grave

This is in reality what it means to be in Purdah – the short and sweet of it.

Today these women want to claim to be in Purdah and be pious yet they:

  1. Go shopping to shopping malls and centres
  2. Raise their loud voices and scream and swear
  3. Drive cars
  4. Visit public places and functions
  5. Exercise by walking in the streets
  6. Appear in photos and in newspapers and magazines and in social media sites
  7. Attend sporting events
  8. Attend weddings and fetes and even go to the farms for Qurbani
  9. Take part in Ghandi walks
  10. Take part in Palestinian walks
  11. Go to the beaches in Burkinis
  12. And the list is endless

Please educate these women and others about Purdah. What is the real Purdah, what does it mean.

JazākAllāh Khairan.

Was-Salaam

Western World Cup Fans Demand Beer: Are They More Astray Than Animals?

This current FIFA World Cup (in Qatar) has witnessed Westerners making the most of their opportunity to recycle many Orientalist clichés, however there’s a particularly telling and recurring complaint that seems odd even by their own standards: the ban on beer (or at least the public consumption of alcohol, as there seem to be “designated fan zones” where alcohol consumption is permitted).

Numerous news outlets consider this to be absolutely outrageous and something beyond comprehension. How could Qatar have taken such drastic measures? For instance, the New York Times discusses it as part of some sort of “culture clash.”

Our focus in this article won’t be the dangers posed by alcohol or ethanol to our health. There are already countless articles on this particular issue.

Let’s instead evaluate the Western inability to live without alcohol. It is simply astounding that there’s an entire civilization that can do without God, without parents, etc., for most if not all of their lives. But here they are, completely unable to swallow the possibility that they may have to live without alcohol for less than a single month.

And why is it that they need and depend on alcohol so much?

Is it because they want to be “rational” (while accusing Muslims of being irrational)?

Is it because they want to “defend women’s rights” (while accusing Muslims of being misogynists)?

The answer to these questions is a pretty straightforward no. In fact, alcohol conflicts with all of the above and more. It transforms people into mindless brutes with no notion of self, consciousness, identity, and so on—basically everything that makes us human.

We could even say that it mutates them into animals or something more astray than animals.

The reason I would use such phraseology is because it is actually what we find in the Qur’an (7:179):

Indeed, We have destined many jinn and humans for Hell. They have hearts they do not understand with, eyes they do not see with, and ears they do not hear with. They are like cattle. In fact, they are even less guided! Such ˹people˺ are ˹entirely˺ heedless.

This is a “controversial” verse for many (if not most) of the disbelievers. However our point here is precisely this. Their entire civilization is obsessed with transforming humans into something more astray than animals.

Counter-intuitively, just to show how this actually goes much deeper, we’ll avoid delving into the most obvious intellectual animalization movement of the modern West that is neo-Darwinian evolution, with its ape-fetish.

Animalization in Philosophy

In modern Western philosophy, the two main philosophical traditions are known as rationalism and empiricism. The former is represented by René Descartes and the latter by British thinkers such as John Locke, David Hume, and others.

For rationalists, the basis of their epistemology—or the means by which one may access certain knowledge—is human reason.

For empiricists on the other hand, the basis of their epistemology is the senses, through seeing, etc., and basing their epistemology on the senses led them to comparing humans with animals. After all, animals have senses too.

It is thus no wonder that Étienne Bonnot de Condillac (Locke’s main disciple in France) is described as “blurring of the oppositions distinguishing man and animal,” as noted in an academic article (p. 70). Then you have the aforementioned David Hume (one of the main empiricist thinkers), who proclaimed that “no truth appears to be more evident, than that beast are endow’d with thought and reason as well as men.”

After all, if access to truth is gained through the senses, then animals exploring their natural habitats are also seeking truth through experimentation.

Some two centuries later, this equating humans with animals would lead Peter Singer (one of the West’s most popular philosophers and “the father of the animal rights movement”) to try and justify bestiality (sex with animals). After all, they’re “just like us” right?

Animalization in Economics

Scottish moral philosopher Adam Smith is often considered to be “the father of modern economics” because of his 1776-essay, The Wealth of Nations.

Yet many place another name before his: the relatively unknown Dutch physician, merchant, and philosopher Bernard de Mandeville. This is someone that Adam Smith was indebted to and someone whose main essay also includes a reference to animals, The Fable of the Bees (published in 1714).

Mandeville can be described as being the father of liberal economics for having anticipated notions such as free-market and laissez-faire. And when applying these to morality, it becomes a paradigm that is not only centered around notions of egoism, selfishness, and ruthless competition but also as a rebuttal of any form of religious morality.

An article summarizes the book as follows:

In the poem, Mandeville imagines a hive of bees that copies in its every detail and activity everything seen in human society. Greed, selfishness, the pursuit of material profit and pleasure dominate everyone in their activities and in their conduct toward others.

No regard is shown for others in market conduct, with each one following their own defined self-interest for personal gain and enjoyment for the fulfillment of their earthly desires. Yet, out of these “vices” of materialistic self-interestedness comes industry, innovation, a mass of goods and services that generate a life of material and culture comfort and ease that benefit all, even though it was no one’s intention, design, or purpose.

In other words:

Acting evil is not only good, but also necessary “for the economy.” (It should also be noted here that according to Mandeville, bees don’t often appear as evil as they should, unlike humans.)

Those who want to personally evaluate the conclusions of such a liberal, individualist, and utilitarian approach to the economy can read a book by Austrian School economist, Walter Block: Defending the Undefendable (published 1976). Within this book, he basically defends drug dealers, pimps, etc., on the basis that they are, from a purely materialistic perspective, “important” economic actors that are “contributing” to society.

I mean, how would many women “generate wealth” that is “contributing to society” if they didn’t become prostitutes? At the end of the day, all of these “contributions” increase the country’s GDP!

Just let that crazy line of thought sink in for a moment.

Animalization in Psychology

In psychology there was a strong trend towards animalization too. We could argue that part of this was with Freud’s overt sexualization, but it was mainly manifested by the behaviorist movement, which was very influential after WWI up until the late ’50s when Noam Chomsky dismantled it (and empiricism as a whole), enacting the so-called cognitive revolution.

It was founded in the United States by Watson and in the Soviet Union by Pavlov, and this was for discernible reasons:

America was going through Fordism (the idea of standardized mass production), and the Soviet Union itself was totalitarian. Thus both civilizations essentially needed a “mechanical,” soulless individual. And behaviorism, which desired to study humans as animals in terms of deterministic laws and conditioning, was obviously the perfect psychological tool.

Just as Pavlov famously conditioned his dogs (for which he’d receive the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1904), behaviorism aimed for the conditioning of individuals in the same way—as valueless workers in Communist Russia or as brainless consumers in Capitalist America.

RELATED: Synthetic Babies: A Generation of Slaves for the Modern Machine

The most famous of the American behaviorists, B.F. Skinner, would regularly try and remind us that humans and animals aren’t that different.

So, Are They More Astray Than Animals?

This kind of animalization in philosophy, economics, and psychology wasn’t to be kept in the books of a few select individuals. Instead, it would define the nature of Western civilization, something William Davies calls The Happiness Industry (within his book, named as such).

It is basically the godless civilization of soulless individuals who seek some elusive happiness through their hedonistic lifestyles.

This explains the latest episode in Western behavior with what’s going on in Qatar:

They no longer have God, family, values, etc., but for some reason they’re outraged at not having a beer for a few weeks while watching some silly and completely inconsequential football matches.

Is getting drunk—and temporarily annihilating the very “reason” they try to employ against Muslims—really that important and vital to their existence?

Contrast this with the very purpose of our creation:

And [know that] I have not created [either] jinn or human beings [for any other end] but to [know and] worship Me [alone]. (Qur’an, 51:56)

They are more astray than animals.

Animals at least submit to Allah.

DEVELOPING CONTINGENCIES OF TRADE AND COMMERCE

I had contemplated to compile a treatise consisting of all new developing trade and commerce scenarios of this era, and their consequential Shar‟i Ahkaam (Rulings), and to name the compilation Hawaadithul Fataawa. I had planned that traders and all those connected to trade and commerce should explain their respective dealings, contracts and concepts pertaining to trade and commerce. I did publicize this intention, however, no one had co-operated. Nevertheless, I did of my own accord, prepare a concise treatise on this subject. But due to its conciseness, it is inadequate. Despite this, at least it will become known from a perusal of this concise treatise that for all new developments, expediencies and contingencies the Shar‟i rulings are all to be found in the expositions of the Fuqaha. They had formulated such principles which embrace all new developments.
This was the wonderful karaamat (miracle) of those illustrious Souls.
Our Comment
In the final analysis, the Decree of Allah Ta‘ala prevails. Since Allah Ta‘ala did not will the contemplated Treatise of Hadhrat to become a reality, it did not materialize. The decrees of Allah Ta‘ala are saturated with wisdom. If Hadhrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) had succeeded in his wish to compile what he had contemplated, it would have become problematic for the Ulama-eHaqq of our current era. This is so, because Hadhrat Thanvi‘s formulation of the Ahkaam would have been based on either grossly insufficient information or gross misinformation. The traders would have presented their personal understanding of trade dealings and contracts, and Hadhrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) would have issued his Fataawa on such shaky basis dangling on the precipice of butlaan. A typical example is Hadhrat Thanvi‘s fatwa of permissibility of dealing in ‗shares .When the question of shares was posed to Hadhrat, he called a trader from Saharanpur to explain to him what exactly are ‗shares‘. The poor trader who was ignorant in this field proffered an explanation on the basis of which Hadrat Thanvi concluded that it was a valid Shirkat (Partnership). What we are mentioning is not our mere understanding, but was confirmed by Hadhrat Maulana Masihullah (Rahmatullah alayh) who had very carefully perused and studied our Fatwa on the impermissibility of shares after the Ulama of Mia‘s Farm had complained to him regarding our stance of impermissibility. Hadhrat Masihullah (Rahmatullah alayh) said to this writer: ―In fact, Hadhrat Thanvi had also purchased some shares. But this is an issue which depends on constantly surfacing facts.‖ At this juncture of the conversation, Hadhrat Masihullah (Rahmatullah alayh) concurred with the correctness of our Fatwa. Furthermore, Hadhrat Mufti Mahmoodul Hasan Gangohi (Rahmatullah alayh) had also concurred with our Fatwa. But the compilers of his Fataawa Mahmoodiyyah deemed it brilliant to exclude this particular Fatwa from the collection of his Fataawa. When true fear for Allah Ta‘ala is lacking, then the nafs advises suppression of the Haqq, but the Haqq will not remain long suppressed. It must necessarily surface and in the words of the Qur‘aan: ―Smash out the brains of baatil.‖
Thus, it was a Bounty of Allah Ta‘ala for us of this era that Hadhrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) was not permitted by Divne Decree to give practical effect to his contemplation. If he had succeeded, then today all these molvis of soo‘ and baatil preponderating the globe would have quoted him as the final authority just as they are today citing the glaring errors of Mufti Taqi Sahib as daleel for the ‗permissibility‘ of haraam pictography, haraam riba, etc.
Our Akaabir Ulama of decades ago were disadvantaged by the fact that for any new development of the West they were generally reliant on Zindeeqs professing to be Muslims, for information and explanation. These university products with their donkey qualifications, either intentionally or due to their own ignorance, would misinform the Akaabir Ulama. Since our Senior Ulama were not versant in English, they were constrained to rely on the warped conceptions and misinformation fed to them by modernist Muslim doctors, professors, traders and the like.
Alhamdulillah! Thumma Alhamdulillah! We are not languishing in the same kind of disadvantage of our Akaabir Ulama. Allah Ta‘ala has adequately equipped us to understand and nullify the avalanche of baatil which the modernist zanaadaqah are peddling. Today their baatil is supported by even molvis and sheikhs who have betrayed Allah Ta‘ala and His Rasool, and the Ummah for the sake of the miserable dollars they earn for churning out fatwas of jawaaz (permissibility) for haraam products.
Allah Ta‘ala has therefore made us independent of all these modernist morons who can no longer get away with the bamboozling shenanigans with which they used to trick and deceive the Akaabir Ulama of decades ago. Doctors, lawyers, scientists and experts
in all spheres of mundane life can no longer bamboozle the Ulama-e-Haq whom Allah Ta‘ala has made independent by granting them the requisite intellectual foundation to administer the Haq and to degrade the modernist zanaadaqah from their heights of hubris. This Haq will be perpetuated until the Day of Qiyaamah. Its Call will always remain loud, clear and it will overwhelm the combined forces of all the Agents of Dajjaal and Iblees. Giving us this assurance,

Allah Ta‘ala states in the Qur‘aan Majeed:
“The Haq has arrived and baatil has vanished, for verily, baatil (by its very nature) must vanish.”
(Mujlisul Ulama)
