Islams Reformers

The bigotry of the religion reformers or bigots of science who surfaced lately to blame all previous scholars, basic fundamental beliefs or practices

all over the world.

all over the world. Among them are Kusaimî, the author of Sarrâ’, and Nâsir Albânî, a mudarris at the Jami’at al-Madîna. Muhammad Zakariyya, a Pakistani man of religion, liked Mawdûdî’s writings at first, but later he wrote him a letter full of advice and published a booklet covering his heretical opinions when he sensed his heresy and deviation. Doctor ’Abdurrazzâq Hazârawî Pâkistânî translated this booklet into Arabic and published it adding his comments. Those who read it will clearly understand Mawdûdî’s opinions. Some of his opinions are fisq (immorality); some are bida’; some are ilhâd (heresy); some reveal his ignorance in Islam; and others show that he has not understood religious knowledge well. His various writings contradict one another. “Great Muslim scholars of India of every madhhab came together at Jam’iyyat al-’Ulamâ’ in Delhi on the 27th of Shawwâl, 1370 (August 1, 1951) and reached the conclusion that Mawdûdî and his Al-Jamâ’at al-Islâmiyya caused subversive people misleading Muslims and published this fatwâ (decision) in a book and in papers.” [1] And the scholars of Pakistan passed a resolution that Mawdûdî was a heretic who tried to make others heretics; this resolution was edited once again in the Akhbâr al-Jam’iyya in Rawalpindi on the 22nd of February, 1396 (1976). A certain group in the Muslim world propagandize Muhammad ’Abduh, Mawdûdî and Sayyid Qutb’s ideas which are against Islam, as if they were something ingenious. They introduce their rebellious ideas as a struggle of heroism. Lest the pure youngsters should fall for these tricky propagandas and false appraisals, we have conveyed the truth of the matter above. The greatest proof for the correctness of these writings, which have been derived from sources searched for a long time, and for the accurateness of the diagnosis is Mawdûdî’s own words, which are incompatible with Islam’s basic teachings and which are written in the paragraphs above. May Allâhu ta’âlâ protect Muslim children against being misled by heretical, aberrant ideas. Âmin. 47 - Before explaining the way taken by Sayyid Qutb, it will be useful to give some information about his adviser, Muhammad ’Abduh (1265/1849-1323/1905, Egypt). His articles in Al-waqâyi’ al-Misriyya, an Egyptian paper of his time, in the magazine Al- Manâr and in the paper Al-Ahrâm reveal his heretical thoughts. [1] Al-ustâd al-Mawdûdî, p. 7.

He had some activities in Beirut for a while, too, but the Ahl as- Sunna scholars perceived his evil purposes and he had to go to Paris. There, he cooperated with Jamâl ad-dîn al-Afghânî, who had been preparing the application of masonic plans against Islam, and they published the magazine Al-’urwat al-wuthqâ. Then he returned to Beirut and Egypt, and began to apply the decisions made in Paris and to misguide the youth. The government of Khidiw Tawfîq Pasha, seeing that his lectures and articles were harmful, employed him in one of the offices of the law-court. Yet he continued to write so as to sabotage Islam, which was a part of the masonic plans. With the help of freemasons he became the Muftî of Cairo. He began to attack the Ahl as-Sunna. As the first activity, he attempted to change the curriculum of the madrasa of Jâmi’ al-Azhar, thus preventing the youth from valuable courses. He abrogated the graduate courses in the universities, so that they began to teach books that had been prepared for senior and junior high schools. Freemasons had already done the same thing in the Ottoman Empire; after the Tanzîmât (a turning point in the Ottoman history marked by the political reforms in 1839), scientific courses had been abrogated from the madrasas and the religious education had been deprived of high-level courses. All these were done because Islam was established upon knowledge, without which and without any real religious man left Islam would be doomed to extinction. When there is no cloud, to expect rain would mean to expect miracles. Allâhu ta’âlâ is able to make this, but His Divine Law of Causation is not so. Education of an Islamic scholar requires the reappearing and spreading of Islamic knowledge and the elapse of a hundred years. The enemies tried to extinguish the Islamic sun. Hannâ Abî Râshid, chief of the masonic lodge in Beirut, wrote: “Jamâl ad-dîn al-Afghânî was the chief of the masonic lodge in Egypt, which had about three hundred members, mostly scholars and state officials. After him, the leading master Muhammad ’Abduh became the chief. ’Abduh was a leading freemason. No one can deny that he has spread the masonic spirit in Arab countries.” [1] Seeing the reforms made by Muhammad ’Abduh, many people suppose that he was an Islamic scholar. The Ahl as-Sunna scholars have written answers to his articles and torn up his mask. For example, Elmal›l› Hamdi Beg, in his interpretation of the [1] Dâ’irat al-ma’ârif al-masoniyya, p. 197, Beirut, 1381/1961. – 179 –
