Junaid Jamshed speech video Islamic Ruling on Gustakhi Blasphemy?

             Junaid Jamshed the noted singer turned a devout Muslim is a well known figure in Muslim World. As he was a popular singer earlier and left his lucrative profession and became a devout Muslim and Daee (Caller to Islam) so this 180 degree turn around (Music is Unlawful in this world by our creator. The creator knows the best about the good and bad for us) made him a news headline in media around the world. It is Allah who give Hidayat to whom he wants and Allah is Great.

                  As Dawah (call to Islam and Iman) corresponding to a person ability is an obligatory duty for all Muslims as no new prophet after Muhammad sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam will come till day of Judgment. So it is individual and collective responsibility of Muslim Ummah to do the work of propagation of last of divine message of our creator. Scholars will do Dawah work according to their ability and a general muslims will do according to their ability.

Recently a video clip of 2 minute has become viral on internet in which junaid jamshed is giving a talk in a small gathering. He was talking about the relationship between Hazrat Muhammad Slaallahu Alihi Wasallam and his wife mother of the believers Hazrat Aisha Raziallahu Anha. He narrates incidences about the personal relation, love humor and extreme affection of the relation.

Some of these sentences seem to be inappropriate and some Muslims have objected it. As junaid jamshed realized his mistake he gave open statement to all seeking apology and clarification that it was not intentional rather a slip of tongue. He circulated an apology and clarification in a video clip.

We will discuss Islamic Perspective and lessons for Muslims from Whole episode.

1. All Muslims should be careful about the words and writing. While giving example, it should be appropriate.

2. If a Muslim is clarifying and giving his explanation we should be ready to accept it. We should not do suspicion about fellow Muslims.
Allah (SWT) emphatically prohibit suspicion

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)
O you who believe, abstain from many of the suspicions. Some suspicions are sins. And do not be curious (to find out faults of others), and do not backbite one another. Does one of you like that he eats the flesh of his dead brother? You would abhor it. And fear Allah. Surely Allah is Most-Relenting, Very-Merciful.

وَمَا يَتَّبِعُ أَكْثَرُهُمْ إِلاَّ ظَنًّا إِنَّ الظَّنَّ لاَ يُغْنِي مِنْ الْحَقِّ شَيْئًا إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ (يونس: 36).[10:36]
Most of them follow nothing but conjectures (speculation Assumptions). Surely, conjectures are of no avail in the matter of truth at all. Certainly, Allah is fully aware of what they do.

[It is narrated in Bukhari & Muslim on the authority of Sayyidina Abu Hurairah (RA) that Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassllam) stated, "Beware of suspicion, for suspicion is the worst of false tales; and do not look for the others' faults and do not spy..."

3. If a statement can be attributed for two meaning/ interpretation. The person should be asked about his interpretation and that should be accepted.
There are authentic traditions which instruct us that we should judge matters on the apparent and also make decisions based on the apparent and similar is the statement of Sayyidina Umar (RA) in which he instructs the believers not to interpret the sayings and actions of one's brothers on the evil until it can be interpreted upon the good.

According to Nawawi, “attests to the well known principle of fiqh and legal methodology that rulings are based upon outward evidence, while Allah is responsible for the inward” (Sharh Sahih Muslim, 2.107).

4. The slip of tongue and pen should not be made out of proportion and should be pardoned.

5. We should not jump to branding any Muslim out of Islam without a reason that can be proved in the court of Allah.As.
“Whoever charges a believer with unbelief is as though he had killed him” (Bukhari, 8.32: 6105. S).
“Any man who says, ‘O kafir” to his brother, one of them deserves the name” (Bukhari, 8.32: 6104. S).
It is difficult to think of a direr warning, and its purpose is clearly to dissuade Muslims of religion and good sense from judging anyone who professes Islam to be an unbeliever unless there is irrefutable proof.

Not being careful for the above points is the main reason of groupism in Ummat........If you go in history 95% of group fighting among muslims are about writing/speech that is wrongly interprated.........Only 5% has some substance.........
