مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ أَشِدَّاءُ عَلَى الْكُفَّارِ رُحَمَاءُ بَيْنَهُمْ تَرَاهُمْ رُكَّعًا سُجَّدًا يَبْتَغُونَ فَضْلاً مِنْ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَانًا سِيمَاهُمْ فِي وُجُوهِهِمْ مِنْ أَثَرِ السُّجُودِ ذَلِكَ مَثَلُهُمْ فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَمَثَلُهُمْ فِي الإِنجِيلِ كَزَرْعٍ أَخْرَجَ شَطْأَهُ فَآزَرَهُ فَاسْتَغْلَظَ فَاسْتَوَى عَلَى سُوقِهِ يُعْجِبُ الزُّرَّاعَ لِيَغِيظَ بِهِمْ الْكُفَّارَ وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ مِنْهُمْ مَغْفِرَةً وَأَجْرًا عَظِيمًا (الفتح: 29
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ جَاءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوا أَنْ تُصِيبُوا قَوْمًا بِجَهَالَةٍ فَتُصْبِحُوا عَلَى مَا فَعَلْتُمْ نَادِمِينَ (الحجرات: 6
[49:6] O you who believe, if a sinful person brings you a report, verify its correctness, lest you should harm a people out of ignorance, and then become remorseful on what you did.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِنْ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ وَلاَ تَجَسَّسُوا وَلاَ يَغْتَبْ بَعْضُكُمْ بَعْضًا أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَنْ يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ رَحِيمٌ (الحجرات: 12)
فَقُولاَ لَهُ قَوْلاً لَيِّنًا لَعَلَّهُ يَتَذَكَّرُ أَوْ يَخْشَى (طه: 44
ادْعُ إِلَى سَبِيلِ رَبِّكَ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَالْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ وَجَادِلْهُمْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنْ ضَلَّ عَنْ سَبِيلِهِ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِالْمُهْتَدِينَ (النحل: 125).
فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِنْ اللَّهِ لِنْتَ لَهُمْ وَلَوْ كُنْتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لاَنْفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ فَاعْفُ عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ وَشَاوِرْهُمْ فِي الأَمْرِ فَإِذَا عَزَمْتَ فَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُتَوَكِّلِينَ (آل عمران: 159).
Let us Analyse most of the group bashing book/ video audio talk on internet...............
2.They will indulge in made up lies, cooked arguement, slip of tongue slip of pen, Quoting out of context insults and personal attacks.
4.Most of the time issues are blown out of proportion away from reality. They will spread confusion to strengthen their group and some worldly benefit of fame and position.
. [48:29] Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are hard on the disbelievers, compassionate among themselves;
Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says:
And for those who harm believing men and believing women - without their having done any wrong- they surely burden themselves with the guilt of slander and a glaring sin. [AI-Ahzab 33:58]
Woe to every backbiter, derider
'Abdullah Radiyallahu 'anhu narrates that Rasullullah Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam said: To abuse a Muslim is disobedience, and his murder is infidelity. (Bukhari)
Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu 'anhu naixates that Nabr Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam said: Avoid jealousy, verily, jealousy consumes good deeds like fire consumes dry wood (or he said) grass. (Abu Dawud)
2. Extreme careful should be for calling anyone infidel or enemy of Allah/ Rasool or abusive words.
Abu Dhar Radiyallahu 'anhu narrates: I heard Rasullullah Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam saying: He who calls someone an infidel or enemy of Allah, but that person is not guilty, then t! ese words return to the one who blamed. (Muslim)
'Abdullah ibn 'Amr Radiyallahu 'anhuma narrates that Rasullullah Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam said: He who abuses a Muslim is like one who is heading to his destruction. (Tabarani, Jami- 'us-Saghir)
Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu 'anhu narrates that Rasullullah Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam said: Indeed the biggest amongst the major sins is to attack a Muslim's honour unjustly. (Abu Dawud)
4. Very common Problem .....Groupism ridden scholars will present isolated sentence from opponent group book and will inter prate it out of context..........
If scholars are criticising any book or talk following principle must be followed. Present full page and not Isolated sentence At times after reading sentence before and after only correct meaning become clear.
Dont believe the word/ sentence presented by speaker unless you confirm from original source. At times after after one or two reference
ALLAH pak says in surah ASRA
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] Very clear Hadith is there in Saheeh Muslim
The prohibition of speaking about everything that one hears.Matan of Hadeeth starts with “KAFA BILAMRE KAZIBAN……………………………(MUSLIM SHAREEF)
(Translation ) “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘It is sufficient lying for a man to speak of everything that he hears.’”
Same article is in Surah Nisa also. Ibne katheer write in Tafseer of this “ In this Ayat there is negation on the act of those who spread facts before confirming it and spread them stead fast ,whoever at times these are not true”
5.In the matter of difference of opinion on jurisprudence/fiqh issue ..............the groupism ridden scholars will present Hadith in evidence of their point and will conceal the Hadith supporting others view............................So please see all the Ahadith on issue that will give a complete Picture and see the evidence of other group also.This will decrease the mistrust and jealousy between groups that consider others Imams opinion as wrong and baseless.
that Placing Hand on the chest is from Authentic Hadith. and rest all Positions are weak ............
But this was far from truth.
The Hadith for placing hand on chest from Wasil Ibne Hajar (R.A.) in Sahih Ibne Khuzaimah is weak(Zaeef) Hadith. Actually all the Ahadith for position of hand in prayer are weak.
1.On the chest
2.Below the chest and
all are from hadith but all hadith are weak.
This is the reason that different Imams Based on their Principles of derivation of rule has differed on the issue and it is their Ijtahad and Islam has allowed it.
BUT ALL Scholars ARE AGREED THAT other RULINGs AND POSITIONs ARE also CORRECT...........Imam Shafaee opinion is of placing below chest but when he visited Imam Abu Haneefa Place prayed according to Hanafi way of placing below nevel.
This is acceptable disagreement
Hadith in Bukhari Shareef (9:133)
“If the Hakim made his Ijtihad or the extraction of the verdict from original sources of legislation and he reached the correct verdict he will get two rewards. And if he reached the wrong verdict he will only get one reward.”
Other evidence for this acceptable disagreement in Islam
Comes from a Hadith reported by Imams Bukhari and Muslim, in which Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.)ordered his companions after the battle of Al-Ahzaab
saying, “No one of you should pray Asr until you reach the village of Bani-Qurayzah (A Jewish tribe) .” While they were on their way, the time of Asr came. Some companions said we should not pray until we reach Bani-Qurayzah. Others said we should pray Asr now because the Prophet (S.A.W.) did not mean for us to leave the Asr prayer, but he wanted us to be in a hurry. So some of the companions prayed Asr , while others continued on until they reached Bani-Qurayzah after sunset. When they went back to the Prophet, they mentioned to him the story and he did not blame either one of them." This Hadith clearly shows us that the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) accepted both opinions, because if one of them were wrong then the Prophet would have expressed it at that time.
1.Critism should be with deep knowledge ,clear heart and intention(WASEE ILM aur PAK QULOOB) for the purpose of correction.
3. Works should be directed to guide people towards the Islam and not to insult and disparage others Sheikh Maulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi Rahimullah has written at lenth on this aspect of Muslim organisation and Scholars and has suggested way for correction in his book Tabligh e deen ka ek Usool in Urdu.
May Allah guide us and give Hidayat for ourself,and for whole mankind.May Allah help us to be neutral and free from group mentality and to keep Islam first. May Allah give us taufeeq to tell truth in anger and happiness. May Allah save all of us from evil of Nafs (Self ego). Only Allah can give the strength.
2.They think unless they will not criticize other to prove them wrong no one will come to their sub ideology. They lack Ikhlas .
3.In some cases Worldly benefit in the form of public support base and Big Position is close to their chest. It is eating Ummat Strength from within.
A common methodology of groupism is done in FOLLOWING steps
In order to meet his objective one group X will allege the Group Y with baseless allegation.These allegation based on some text in the group Y book. Group X will present it out of context.Will give own meaning and present to public.
The group Y will first try to clear the fact and will clearly tell that this was not his meaning.It has been quoted out of context.Our Aqeedah is not of the Alleged Aqeedah.
But group X will not accept any clarification. And will propagate its interpretation by full vigour and by all possible means.Even if group Y will try best to clarify no takers will be there.
Group Y credibility is at stake.They are desparate.
They are Seeing no option.
The group Y will also do the same.Will bring by same methodology some set of allegations. And will declare their Aqeedah wrong.
FIFTH AND NEXT STEPS
This trend and accusation and counter accusation will go on.
WHO STARTED THIS...........
Who is X who first alledged ???????????????
It is on rotation Basis on different issue they will become X and Y ...............and fighting will remain continue.
Although amount of contribution is more /less.............. that can vary from group to group.
Who initiated this trend is ........... History.??????
We dont know exactly.Very difficult to trace and of no use as they are not alive to explain their position.But a single group/person is not to be blamed.It is a collective contribution.
2. Allah will certainly give the Reward,Even if result is not visible as Rasul Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said innamal a'malu binniyat (Bukhari Shareef Hadith No 1)
a) IKHLAS/SINCERITY OF INTENTION IS MUST
b) DO IT ONLY FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH AND FOR DEEN
E MUHAMMADI SALLALLAHU ALAIHI WASALLAM. NOT
FOR ANY WORDLY GAIN...................NAME
c) Keep faith on Allah. dont be disheartened if result is not visible.
d) Allah will certainly give the Reward,Even if result is not visible as Rasul Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said innamal a'malu binniyat (Bukhari Shareef Hadith No 1)
2. If the Issue is not in the base of deen and in superficial Dont make a big Issue.
Dont put anything out of context.Ask the group/writer what it intends with it
3. Dont blame any group as a whole for any wrong doing. Blame the wrong action and person concerned not the group as a whole.
4. Concentrate on General people,In Every Group there are some flag bearer. They are tough fellow but hey are only 5-10 % in each group. Dont involve with them. Dont dishearten by their comment.
They are to come at last. Concentrate on rest 90% of general population.
5. Dont go after big Ulemas/Scholar in initial phase.
Most of the Big scholars/leader in all groups are good people .So dont expect from them to come Forward in initial phase.
5. Dont wait for anyone.Start doing effort from your own level by heart tongue ,persuation,request,timely and scholary reply and dua.
