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

First World War; for, these three wars were started and directed not by Muslim governments but by secret revolutionists who had no connection with Islam. 56 - Sayyid Qutb, disguised in a hero of liberty, wrote in his book Islamic Studies, “Those who do not stand and shout against the face of dictators and miscreants either commit a grave sin or behave in this manner because they are hypocritical in belief. Or they are utterly ignorant people who do not know real Islam.” (Page 32) [1] With statements of this sort he incited fitna among Muslims. As a matter of fact, a hadîth states, “Fitna is asleep. May Allâhu ta’âlâ damn him who wakes fitna!” and “When you cannot correct something wrong, be patient! Allâhu ta’âlâ will correct it.” Hadrat al-Imâm ar-Rabbânî said that al-amru bi ’l-ma’rûf should be performed mildly. It was stated in a hadîth, “He who cannot change the oppression of the cruel should migrate from there.” “Islam is a struggle, an endless war. It is not Islamic to murmur prayers, to jingle the beads of rosary, to trust in the words, ‘O my Allah, You protect us,’ and to believe in that benevolence will rain from the sky.” (Page 33) The forty-seventh letter of the third volume of Maktûbât [1] by Hadrat al-Imâm ar-Rabbânî is a perfect answer to these writings of Sayyid Qutb and helps one understand immediately what kind of path Sayyid Qutb followed. Allâhu ta’âlâ commands to pray and to trust in Him, and He says He likes those who pray and trust in Him, but Sayyid Qutb made fun of those who prayed to and trusted in Allâhu ta’âlâ. The Qur’ân and the Hadîth command to tell beads. They praise those who tell their beads, but he denied this. It is common to Muslims and unbelievers to make preparations for war, to hold fast to the means and to make the most modern media of defence; however, there is the weapon of tawakkul and prayer in Muslims in addition. Hadrat Ibn Hajar al-Makkî wrote: “A person who disbelieves in saying prayers, in fact, disbelieves in the Qur’ân al-kerîm and the Hadîth according to most Islamic scholars and, therefore, he is an unbeliever. The thing asked in prayers will either be accepted and given, or it will be given in the next world, or it will cause a [1] Reference to the Turkish translation of Sayyid Qutb’s Islamic Studies.

sin to be forgiven. Allâhu ta’âlâ likes His human creatures to pray and beg Him. There are conditions for the prayers to be accepted. One of them is that what you consume and wear should be halâl, and another is to ask them from your heart, that is, sincerely. It is stated in a hadîth, ‘Allâhu ta’âlâ likes those who pray very much. He who prays and does not give up hope will certainly attain one of the three things promised.’ It is a sunna to use rosary.” [1] Sayyid Qutb’s writing, “It is not Islamic,” about these kinds of worship, which are stated in the Hadîth, shows what kind of a reformer he was. “Islam never keeps in view to make war in order to convert anyone to the religion with coercive methods” (Page 33) “The thing asked of the Prophet of Islam and his followers is to convert people to the religion by endeavouring and showing zeal with mild invitations.” (Page 41) We have proved in detail in the forty-ninth paragraph that these writings were wrong and slanderous. Muslims treat and advise (al-amru bi ’l-ma’rûf) everybody mildly. Muslims of dâr al- Islâm are commanded to get on well with the unbelievers of dâr alharb. “All the early conquests were intended to make Islam the single religion of mankind not by using force but through free invitation.” (Page 43) The hadîths that refute this idea have been quoted above. “Islam commands everybody to bring justice into effect on the world.” (Page 45) He meant that the âyat, “Reconcile Muslims!” referred to all the people in the world. Islam does not command to practise justice in the non-Muslim countries. It commands Muslims to introduce îmân and Islamic justice into these countries. “If we hold religious belief as a basis for moral education in order to achieve social solidarity in Arab countries, we will see that all the current religions in these countries -not only Islam- will help us.” (Page 59) Allâhu ta’âlâ declares in the Qur’ân, “There is only the Islamic religion which is right.” As for this Egyptian writer, he held all the false, base religions equal to Islam. He could not realize that there was no need for false religions or ideas while there was Islam. [1] Al-fatâwâ al-fiqhiyya, p. 149-50. – 211 –
