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

eing in one of the four

eing in one of the four madhhabs requires belonging to the Ahl as-Sunna first. If a person dissents from the Ahl as-Sunna and dislikes Sunnîs, his claim to be in one of the four madhhabs is an attempt to deceive Muslims. A Muslim who glances through Sayyid Qutb’s tafsîr book enjoys reading the explanations of âyats, and his soul becomes exhilarated, for these explanations were taken from the Ahl as- Sunna scholars’ tafsîr books. On the other hand, reading Sayyid Qutb’s heretical writings, and their translations, which are incompatible with Islam’s main sources, annoys a Muslim and blackens his heart. Sayyid Qutb’s stunning mediocrity is perceived at once. It is seen that he attempts to explain îmân and islam with philosophical thoughts. It is for this reason that those reasonable Muslims who have read the Ahl as-Sunna scholars’ books, which enliven the souls, and who can realize the greatness of these exalted scholars, read those real books of tafsîr today also and they not only reject Sayyid Qutb’s books, but also try to protect the youngsters from reading them. Though he interspersed his heretical ideas throughout his tafsîr book, Fî dilâl al-Qur’ân, it is deemed, in order to satisfy the readers, useful to be informative with a few of them briefly: 1) When beginning to interpret the sûrat al-Baqara, he says, “Each sûra has a peculiar musical effect and harmony.” Our master Rasûlullah (’alaihi ’s-salâm) said, “Ghinâ (music) increases hypocrisy in the heart.” Does the Qur’ân ever have such an effect? It clears away the darkness caused by music. It illuminates the heart and the soul. It is written in the commentary of al-Birghiwî’s Wasiyyat-nâma, “You should not listen to the things that are read melodiously. The men of tarîqa of our time are very ignorant and obstinate. They recite poems melodiously. They equate the sensual emotions stirred by music with the flavour inherent in the acts of worship. Such heretics who ignore the Book and madhhabs are the pioneers of the Dajjâl’s soldiers. I advise the Believers not to believe them, otherwise you will go out of the religion! Do not deviate from the way of Sunna, Ahl as-Sunna! Do not listen to those who read the Qur’ân al-kerîm, call the adhân and say the dhikr and prayers melodiously! Silence them! The fatwâ book Tâtârhâniyya writes that there is unanimity of scholars on that it is harâm to do these (acts of worship) melodiously. The scholars of fiqh have put forward many evidences and documents showing that it is harâm.” – 226 –

2) “Migration to Medina was done under some compulsion,” he says. On the other hand, Islamic scholars report that the Hegira was done not under fear, trouble or compulsion but with Allâhu ta’âlâ’s decree and permission. It is written in Al-mawâhib alladuniyya, “Rasûlullah (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam) commanded his companions to go from Mecca to Medina. He remained in Mecca, awaiting Allâhu ta’âlâ’s permission. One day, Jabrâ’il (’alaihi ’s-salâm) came and said, ‘The unbelievers of Quraish will kill you. Do not sleep in your bed tonight.’ The next day he brought the âyat permitting him to migrate.” Islamic scholars said and wrote so decently about Rasûlullah (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam). 3) “Various opinions have been put forward in interpreting the letters that exist at the beginning of some sûras of the Qur’ân. We take one of these opinions, which counts them as indicating that the Qur’ân is made up of these letters,” he says. The Ahl as-Sunna scholars say, “These letters are of the mutashâbihât; Allâhu ta’âlâ has concealed their numerous meanings. He has revealed some of them only to His beloved Prophet (’alaihi ’s-salâm) and to ’Ulamâ’ ar-râsihîn, who are his inheritors.” It is declared clearly in other âyats that the Qur’ân was sent down in Arabic letters. It is not something to be slighted that he gives such a meaning to these letters and is reluctant to write what Abû Bakr, ’Umar (radiy- Allâhu ’anhumâ) and the scholars of tafsîr said. This also betrays his crass ignorance of the mysteries in the Qur’ân and the Divine Ma’ârif which have been inspirations for the great men of tasawwuf. 4) “Scholars of tafsîr and tawhîd explained detailedly which one, the earth or the sky, had been created earlier. But they should have known the fact that being earlier and later are human terms. It should not be forgotten, again, that such terms have been used so that the infinite descriptions be comprehended by the limited human mind. The disputations which Islamic thinkers set about on these terms of the Qur’ân are nothing but the tragedy of mixing Greek philosophy and the religious controversies among Jews and Christians with the pure Arab mind and the brilliant Islamic intellect,” he says. See the terms which Sayyid Qutb uses against Islamic scholars and the Salaf as- Sâlihin! Could you imagine a Muslim whose heart would not feel sharp pain from these insults and impertinences which he does – 227 –
