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

do their worship and

do their worship and affairs according to what they understand from hadîths. It is dissention from the Believers’ path. Allâhu ta’âlâ declares in the 43rd âyat of the sûrat an-Nahl, “Ask what you do not know from the people of dhikr!” A hadîth reported through Jâbir ibn ’Abdullâh (radiy-Allâhu ’anh) by Abû Dâwûd says, “Ask what you do not know. Medicine for ignorance is inquiry.” The âyat and hadîth presently quoted command those who do not know to learn by asking those who know. Hence, those who speak about the lâ-madhhabî as quoted above or who admit and believe their words, in fact, belong to the lâ-madhhâbî, being their accomplices in heresy. Question 8: “In the last two years, the number of this group of people has increased in India. An organization named ‘Nadwat ululama’ has been founded in claim of service to Islam and awakening Muslims. Here, every kind of people and those with heretical beliefs have gathered, and lâ-madhhabî people, including a few belonging to Ahl as-Sunna, have taken hold of high chairs. What would you say about this?” Answer 8: Their behaviour is harâm and heretical. It is intended to estrange Muslims with little knowledge from their madhhabs. Such Muslims, upon seeing heretical men of religion in cooperation with Ahl as-Sunna scholars all sitting at the same line of chairs, think of those heretics also as respectful and beneficial. They begin to show respect to them, which is sinful. Islamic religion commands humiliation and severe treatment of men of bid’a and forbids showing respect to them. In ’aqâ’id books, e.g. in Sharh al-maqâsid, the ’ulamâ’ of Islam wrote, “It is necessary to treat severely, to humuliate, to refute and to expel men of bid’a.” When Muslims see them at high ranks, their hearts incline to listen to them and, with the Satan’s cheating, begin to love them. In actual fact, those who cooperate with men of bid’a cause them to deviate from the right path. Gathering of people with different beliefs results in the destruction of the religion. Those who say that they will wake up Muslims, in fact, try to poison them and lead them to disaster. Question 9: “The aim in the establishment of this organization, Nadwa, has been asserted to be the abolition of the difference between the Sunnî and other groups of bid’a. ‘They should not refuse one another’s beliefs, but live brotherly. ’Ulamâ’ should not speak or write on the discordant beliefs among themselves. – 258 –

Or else, they set a bad example to be copied by all Muslims and their disciples. Difference and argument cause perishing and stem from the desires of nafs and self-esteem,’ they say. Are these words right or wrong or excessive?” Answer 9: When a bid’a gets spread, it is fard to refute it and to try to disseminate its harmfulness and wickedness. That this is fard has been unanimously declared by the ’ulamâ’ of Islam. Salaf as-Sâlihîn and the ’ulamâ of all times up to now have always opposed bid’a in this way. One who does not refuse men of bid’a but leave them to themselves will have dissented from Muslims’ unanimity, got away from the Islamic jamâ’a and loved bid’as and holders of bid’a. And this means to discredit the Ahl as-Sunna madhhab and the Muslims of this right path; to forbid the established reason and to command the prohibition; to lead Muslims to Allâhu ta’âlâ’s damnation. Great ’âlim Hadrat Ahmad ibn Hajar al-Makkî, the imâm of Muslims, said in the preface to his work as-Sawâ’iq al-muhriqa, “Though I do not have the profound knowledge to comprehend the reality and essence of the writings in this book, I was inclined to write because of the following hadîth ash-sherîf reported in Al-Jâmi’ by Khatîb al- Baghdâdî: ‘When seditions and bid’as spread and my Sahâba are slandered, those who know the truth should declare what they know! May those who do not declare what they know be damned by Allâhu ta’âlâ, by angels and by all people! Allâhu ta’âlâ does not accept any of their ’ibâdât and goodness.’ ” The statement, “Telling what one knows causes disunion, is sinful and is selfdestruction,” is a slander against Allâhu ta’âlâ and Islamic ’ulamâ’, dissention from the Ahl as-Sunna madhhab and denial or prohibition of an important fard. Question 10: “They say, ‘The most important aim of Nadwa is to annihilate the differences among Ahl al-qibla; to unite Muslims of different faith of Ahl as-Sunna and ahl al-bid’a; to do away with disagreements; to bring them all into a state of benefaction and sweet taste like milk and sugar; to render the simultaneous beat of hearts and the sharing of one another’s sorrow and loss; to make known that all who say kalimat ash-shahâda are brothers even if their beliefs would be different. This is aimed on account of the command in the hadîth, “Oh Muslims! Be brothers to one another!” Disagreement on anything or speaking ill of one another is unnecessary. Such unity is a command, a fard, of – 259 –
