A Brief look on Internet/Facebook Discussion among Muslims.

Dr. Zakir Naik the famous Orator used to say that Non Muslims generally has some common questions about misconception about Islam and he has prepared some 20 frequently asked questions on the issue.

This pattern is closely followed..................... among Muslims also for controversial topics on the name of Islam and Group discussion.

If you analyze the topic of controversy on the name of Islam one may find these are also some 15-20 topic.

1.Position of Hand in Prayer on chest/below chest etc...........
2. Ameen with loud voice or silently...............
3. Women should come to mosque or not.............
4. Following an Imam/mazhab/Taqleed should be done or not.............
5. Waseelah permissible or not ..................

etc>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>some 15-20 topics

Characteristrics of these topics

1.Most of them are very old controversies.

2.When Ulemas and Jurist used to discuss these they were having background knowledge of different point of view and supporting Ahadith for position taken by other scholars.

3.Thats why their interpersonal relation used to be good and harmonious, and in most of the cases discussion used to be selecting the best option among the two/three correct position.

4.And both used to agree that on the basis of Ahadith there is possibility that other position also might be correct.

Now the situation has changed BY FACEBOOK/INTERNET.

In the era of Internet and Facebook every one is free to express his opinion Whether he is competent or not.

Still you will not find an engineer advising/discussing about the use of Clopidogril and Aspirin in CVA. Similarly a doctor discussing about Air capacitor.

Similarly Islamic disciplines are very vast subject.That needs specialisation in particular field.

But among muslims you will find that the freedom of expression is mostly utilised 

on Islamic controversial subjects.

Thats why Prophet S.A.W. has Prohibited needless Argumentation and unnecessary asking.

The Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam has said in this hadith recorded  (Ibn Kathir from Abi Hurairah, (recorded in Saheeh muslim Shareef) 
Translation taken from english tafseer Maariful Quran by Mufti Taqi Usmani   

«إِنَّ اللهَ يَرْضَى لَكُمْ ثَلَاثًا، وَيَسْخَطُ لَكُمْ ثَلَاثًا: يَرْضَى لَكُمْ أَنْ تَعْبُدُوهُ وَلَا تُشْرِكُوا بِهِ شَيْئًا، وَأَنْ تَعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا،وَأَنْ تَنَاصَحُوا مَنْ وَلَّاهُ اللهُ أَمْرَكُمْ. وَيَسْخَطُ لَكُمْ ثَلَاثًا: قِيلَ وَقَالَ، وَكَثْرَةَ السُّؤَالِ، وَإِضَاعَةَ الْمَال»

“that there are three things Allah Almighty  has liked for you while there are three others He has disliked.”
The ones He has liked are as follows:
1. That your worship should be for Allah alone a n d t h a t you should not attribute partne r s to His divinity.
2. That you should hold on to the Book of Allah firmly and avoid disunity.
3. That you should have goodwill for those in authority from among you.

The three things which cause Allah's displeasure are 
1. Unnecessary argumentation.
2. Needless asking.
3. Wastage of resources.

Their are TOPICS OF NO CONTROVERSIES but........ 

Although in Islam there are innumberable topics for which no controversy is there but they needs immediate attention.But hardly you will find any discussions on these topic, like................

1.What are the effective ways of giving Dawah among non believers. So that their could be save from fire of the hell???????

2. How to prevent the widespread and open Shirk and Bidah from the society????

3.What are the ways for achieving our goals from Quran and Sunnah????????

4.Majority of Muslims are not coming to mosque.How to rectify it????????

5. Many muslim Women are not observing Purdah How to start a movement for this??????

6. How to save Muslims from Intrest related financial transaction/Business????

7. Establishment of Good Schools at par with public School so our Children could get education in Islamic Environment

7. How to eradicate the menance of Dowry System among Muslim????????????

And so on >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.

But Ibless has diverted our route and has circled us in viscious manner.

Muslim Intellectuals/debator should ponder over it and if it is found correct should try to rectify it.

3. Hardly any discussion will be on 

How to revive Muslims????????????
How to educate them in Deen or Dunia.??????
How to remove evil from the society.???????
How to bring people on good???????????

Actually these were our original duty that we are not doing our job so preoccupied by unnecessary unnecessary job.

3. 90 % of the debator dont have the requisite knowledge and Ability to discuss the subject. 

TAKE HOME MESSAGE ....................
(If you like this article please share this article to everyone you know and on face book/Forum...........If viewpoints are wrong please write in comments we will correct it.........Please) 

As you have come to this blog one take home message.

If you are a regular internet visitor it will be common scene for you Muslim groups/organizations are accusing each other. Rarly you will find a constructive criticism rather it will under group mentality ranging from Poelemic debate to abusive language.  

Groupism in the Ummah is eating the strength of ummah from within. You tube, Face book and so called Islamic Forums are free but Allah will certainly ask you
Allah says in Quran “And do not follow a thing about which you have no knowledge. Surely, the ear, the eye and the heart - each one of them shall be interrogated about. [17:36]” 

2. Do something Positive. There are countless topic for writing and speaking on Islam where no controversy. Rather controversial topic are hardly some 15-20 topics. But you will find that You tube is full with controversial topics talk/debate.

3. Don’t keep on searching fault in others; Quran has prohibited it in most Explicit Term.

4.To say something about Islam that are clear all Alims and even nonalims that have requisite knowledge can do.

5.If something is wrong in any person/group and you want to point out this,it is a delicate and special task that you are taking so please Judge your competency before doing it.  Your heart should be free from any Bias.  work of Righteous Ulemas/pious Knowlegable Scholar.

6. In criticizing other group following principles should be followed.

A. We should first read the detail Quranic and Ahadith guidelines on Nahi Anilmunkar.And should clearly understand the boundary of acceptable and Non acceptable differences.

B. Aim should be correction and not maligning and criticism. The critiser heart should be filled with love Passion and mercy for their muslim fellows of other group.

C. The criticizer should be a righteous Alim (Ulmae Haqq). His knowledge should be deep, he should be of pure hearts ,and free from pretentiousness (showing-off) and should not do for money name fame and position and free from group mentality. If he is not a formal Alim he should be an scholar of undisputed integrity.

D. Preferably should be soft hearted and voice. If he is not of soft hearted/voice at least should not use abusive language.

E .There should not be any Buhtaan.(Baseless Allagation). So much cheating and forgery is going on while presenting the wrongness of other groups. Don’t base your talk on the book of some known opponents. You should do ground research.
Don’t criticize and allege each other with baseless allegations.

3. Do some positive work .If you are satisfied with any organization/movement do with them........ If you are not satisfied with any one do something independently for Islamic life of yourself,your family and as you are in ummat of last prophet you have responsibility of whole world..

3. Recently on You Tube a video about Dr zakir Naik Sb  has come in which he has been presented as as victim and described that .............,  ,.............,  .............(Group name) are criticizing him with baseless allegation.......He presented himself as victim .......................
This is not Isolated............Case...........

Believe me brother I met big leaders of Four groups Everyone was considering himself as victim and telling that actually other group is offender and we are only defending ourself......... Iblees shaitan has already done the thing worst.......................May Allah help us....

4.My sincere request is to swear by Allah right now that you be from groupism mentality. You may join any Dawah Movement but don’t criticize others,Don’t be after others searching fault here and there.

5. At this point Shaitan may tell you that How to remain silent if one group is doing wrong . So please understand that actual difference is very less b/w groups but Groupism is projecting it wrongly out of proportion. So you should device a way for correction........And mere criticism will not solce the Purpose.

May Allah save all of us from making our book of deeds black. May Allah change our mentality
