None can change Allah’s words:
Ref: Al-Kahf (018), Ayat 027 / Al_Ahzab (033), Ayat 062.
ISLAM IS BASED ON TRUTH, NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH.
ALWAYS UPHOLD TRUTH IN ALL MATTERS OF LIFE (Al_Quraan_002:147, 213 /
004:122, 170 / 007:181). ALLAH DIRECTS US TO NEVER HIDE THE TRUTH
(Al_Quraan_002:042). THE HOLY QURAN IS LIGHT FOR ENTIRE MANKIND
(Al_Quraan_005:015). This is actually the first Pillar of Islam. Please
avoid falsehood and lies, false promises and false oaths, bluff etc. as
it affect our IMAN and we will face Allah's wrath on Judgement Day.
Practice of falsehood with corruption and fraud has become common in
our society due to lack of Quranic knowledge and cornering Islam more
to 'Puja Pat' rituals only. Our Masjid Imams and Ulemas should speak
out Quranic Truth on all matters of life with solution to problems
mentioned therein and avoid projecting such man-written manipulated
Hadiths, tales, stories, sayings, traditions, Caliphate differences
which are not in accordance with the Holy Quran. Please give donations
to only such Masajid which promise to project and promote all Quranic
Guidance/ Ahkamaath with solutions to problems.
ALLAH'S QURAN CAN NOT BE CHANGED OR AMENDED:
Allah specifically directs that none and not even our noble Prophet can
change/amend or deviate from HIS specific Guidance/Mohkmaath
(Al_Quraan_003:007) except preaching, projecting and following Islam, a
complete way of life/Deen (Al_Quraan_005:003) and guiding the erring
and deviated humanity and warning the non-believers to come to the
Right Path of Allah. Please read details: Al_Quraan_010:015, 064,
094-095, 209/ 016:064/ 018:027/ 024:054/ 025:001, 056/ 033:002/
Hence be bold to reject all such weak, unauthentic and
fabricated/manipulated man-written Hadiths, sayings, traditions, tales
and stories, references etc. which are commonly quoted and exploited by
our Mulla community to prolong their lectures/Khitabs that are not in
conformity with the Holy Quran. Please read Quranic translation to
understand Islam correctly to reject bogus Hadiths etc. that violate
the Holy Quran. That is why Allah has disallowed priesthood
(Al_Quraan_057:027) like Pope and Bishops, Gurus and Pundits, Monks as
they exploit the religion in a worst manner to rule and dominate
Hajj is Fard once in a life time subject to affordability
(Al_Quraan_003:096-097). Hajj performance should be based on hard
earned personal Halal income and there should not be any debt and other
obligations on the person performing Hajj. There is no concept of free
Hajj or performing Hajj on some one else money as it is Fard only on
those who can afford it. Hajj-e-Badal or performing Hajj for some one
else, dead or alive, as a substitute conflicts with the clear
directives of Holy Quran as follows:
-------No bearer of any burden can bear the burden of another person (Al_Quraan_017:015 / 035:018).
-------Persons alive or dead are not equal and the dead lying in graves can listen nothing (Al_Quraan_035:022).
-------The dead and deaf can hear nothing (Al_Quraan_027:080).
-------The dead will only be awakened on Judgment Day and until then
they will sleep under BARZAQ (barrier /veil) which prevents them from
awakening (Al_Quraan_023:099-100 / 030:052).
1. After Hajj performance
and Tawbah (repentance), the person concerned should shun all sins and
evils and live a life of piety and do good deeds to earn the Blessings
2. Allah does not accept
(Tawba) repentance of such persons who continue to indulge in sins and
evils until death (Al_Quraan_004:018) even after performing Hajj time
and again. There is no such verse of Allah that after Hajj, all sins
and evils of a person are washed off automatically. Avoid such
misguidance. This is just an important ritual of Allah binding on only
those who can afford to perform it once in a life
3. Therefore instead of
excessive performances of Hajj /Umra, the money thus saved should be
spent for performing good deeds and helping the poor and the needy.
According to authentic Hadith, our Prophet performed Hajj only once to
set an example for his followers to avoid excesses.
4. Allah directs us to
avoid all excesses and over-acting in religious matters and
rituals/Faraiz due to misguidance on the basis of weak and unauthentic
Hadith (Al_Quraan_004:171 / 005:077). Avoid all exploitation and
misguidance in this regard. Be moderate as Ummath Wasth
(Al_Quraan_002:143) in all matters of life.
QURBANI / SACRIFICE OF ANIMAL:
Hajj Qurbani is linked with performance of Hajj only and Hadrath
Ibrahim, the builder of Kaaba was asked by Allah to ensure Qurbani is
made by those performing Hajj for eating and distributing the meat to
the poor and the needy. Further, Allah has allowed that those who could
not afford to make Qurbani, they should keep fast for 3 days during Hajj and further fast for 7 days after they reach their homes thus totaling 10 days. Please read details: Al_Quraan_002:196 / 022:026-037. This indicates how Allah has made the Hajj ritual easy to follow.
……..Actually the Sunnah Ibrahimi event took place some 6000
years before the Holy Quran was bestowed on our Prophet on completion
of our religion, Islam (Al_Quraan_005:003). The details are
mentioned in another Surah (Al_Quraan_037:102-108). When Hadrath
Ibrahim tried to slaughter his son, Hadrath Ismail, at the command of
God, then Allah pleased with the devotion and submission of Hadrath
Ibrahim put a lamb/goat instead for slaughter.
……..Our Ulemas have unnecessarily linked Qurbani should also be given
by those not performing Hajj after Wajib Namaz of Eid Ul Adha without
Azan which is not at all practiced in Arabia. Neither this is supported
in the Holy Quran or authentic Hadiths. The Hajis don’t pray Eid Ul
Adha Namaz and therefore it has been made a Wajib Namaz without Azan
and without any binding of Qurbani for those not performing Hajj.
……..However this Sunnah Ibrahimi can be given any time subject to
requirement. But our Ajami Muslim due to lack of Quranic knowledge and
Mullas’ exploitation try to give Qurbani on mass scale after Eid Ul
Adha Namaz to over-take each other resulting in wastage of meat and
shortage of animals. Allah says that those who indulge in wastage
and show business to impress others should fear Allah and the Judgment
Day as they are companions of Satan (Al_Quraan_004:038). Please avoid
all excesses and over-acting in religious maters and rituals
(Al_Quraan_004:171 / 005:077). Follow Allah not exploiting
-------Qurbani of calf (being infant) is strictly prohibited and the
cow for Qurbani should neither be too old or suffer from any
disability/defect but should be young (Al_Quraan_002:067-071). No weak
or unauthentic Hadith can supersede Holy Quran. Avoid all misguidance
contrary to Holy Quran in this regard.
-------Only piety (TAQWA) of the Qurbani giver reaches Allah not the
meat (Al_Quraan_005:027 /022:037). This means the Qurban Giver should
be pious with Halal income.
All our brothers and sisters are cordially requested to read Quranic
translation again and again being a Universal Deen/religion to
understand and follow all the specific Guidance/Mohkmaath of Allah
(Al_Quraan_003:007) correctly to avoid being misled or misguided on the
basis of weak and unauthentic Hadiths, tales and stories, traditions
not in conformity with the Holy Quran. Islam is a complete
Deen/religion (Al_Quraan_005:003) not Mazhab/theology only which is
part of our Deen. Please read some important Quranic Guidance/Mohkmaath
SOME IMPORTANT GUIDANCE/MOHKMAATH OF ALLAH:
……….Allah has made the religion of Islam clear and easy to follow
(Al_Quraan_005:015 / 006:105 / 019:097 / 024:018 /027:001-002 /
054:017, 032, 040). But our Mulla community have made it as hard
as possible to impose their priesthood domination on us.
………..Allah further says that there is no compulsion or force at all in
religious matters and rituals (Al_Quraan_002:256 / 018:001 / 022:078)
as wrongly and deliberately being projected on the basis of weak and
fabricated Hadiths etc. by exploiting Mullas to divide and rule us.
………...Allah directs us to follow only those who are righteous as per
Holy Quran and do not seek reward/money/wages (Al_Quraan_012:104 /
036:021) being a Fi Sabil Illah/voluntary work to achieve Allah’s
Blessings. Please avoid ‘commercial’ Alims/Masid Imams and others
who have adopted Islam as wage/money earning profession. To make the
income Halal, the Masjid Imams should do cleaning and repair work as no
body is superior in a Masjid.
……….There is no need for a paid Mauzin for Azan only. In Turkish
Mosques, they have installed an automatic mike call for Azan which
should be installed by us also. Azan is simply a call for prayers only.
But we treat it as something very holy to make Azan Dua followed by
Darood Shariff. The Arabs laugh at our religious excesses and over-love
for Islam. Be moderate/Ummath Wasth (Al_Quraan_002:143).
..............Call, follow and make Dua/Ilteja to Allah alone who
listen directly and has no associate / Shareek / Wasila/ intercessor /
intermediary like Masjid Imams etc. (Al_Quraan_007: 003, 194 / 013:014
/ 017:022 / 039:014 / 040:060). Hence after Namaz, make your own Dua
directly to Allah. Don’t ask for Dua from any one else. Avoid this
...........Allah is the only Living One with no other deity and hence
Call, Bow and Worship Allah alone with sincere devotion
(Al_Quraan_040:065). Avoid any Shirk like bowing, kissing and asking
for help from Pirs, Faqirs, Mazar of dead saints etc.
..........Follow all Allah’s specific Guidance/Mohkmaath
(Al_Quraan_003:007) as Islam is a complete way of life/Deen
(Al_Quraan_005:003) and those who reject Faith will go to Hell
(Al_Quraan_002:038-039). Don't corner Islam to so called five pillars
only as the whole Quran is the Pillar of Islam.
..........Allah says that the worst people are those who do not use
their brain to understand Islam but remain deaf and dumb
(Al_Quraan_008:022) to get exploited by vested interests. Don’t be a
blind follower of any exploiting Mulla.
............Allah has no Shareek/partners/Wasila/associate etc. as this
is a unforgivable sin (Al_Quraan_004:048). Please avoid such Mullas
i.e. Pirs, Faqirs, Babas, Sajada Nashins, Taghoots etc. who indulge in
Tawaiz, Ganday, Jadoo, Tona and special DUA business. All are equal
before Allah and equally accountable and answerable for their deeds and
misdeeds, sins and evils etc. before Allah as per Holy Quran.
In Pakistan, every big Mulla has his own religious group and party
along with thousands of blind followers to divide and rule us. Islam
has become a tool in their hands. They build lot of Masajid/Madressahs
mostly illegally on open plots, play grounds, parks, big road
intersections etc. and near to each other on sectarian, Maslak, Fiqah,
cult, group and party basis to divide and rule us which is against the
One Ummah concept of Islam (Al_Quraan_049:010). They wrongly call such
sectarian/Maslak/Fiqah/cult based Masjid as House of Allah to receive
aid and prevent their demolitions.
.........ACTUALLY THE HOUSE OF ALLAH IS ONE AND ONLY MASJID-UL-HARAAM
IN MAKKAH FREE FROM SECTARIANISM, MASLAK, FIQAH DIFFERENCES, RELIGIOUS
GROUPS AND PARTY DIFFERENCES, CULTS OF PIRS, FAQIRS, MONEY EARNING
MULLAS, FREE FROM DONATIONS AND MONEY COLLECTIONS BUSINESS, FREE FROM
LEGAL WRANGLINGS ETC. AND TO WHICH ARE ATTACHED KHANA KAABA, HUJR
ASWAD, MUQAM IBRAHIM, AAB ZAM ZAM, HILLOCKS OF SAFWA AND MARWA
AND WHERE HAJJ AND UMRA ARE PERFORMED.
--------- Allah asks us to avoid excesses and over-acting in religious
matters and rituals and not to follow the misguidance of such people
(exploiting Mullas) who have gone astray from the Right Path of Allah
(Al_Quraan_004:171 / 005:077). Avoid repeated Hajj, Hajj Badal and
other excesses like practiced before Juma Namaz with two Azans instead
of one, two long vague Juma Khitabs instead of one and two long Arabic
Qutbas instead of one to delay Juma Namaz and not even allowing time to
pray Sunnah Namaz. In Arabia such excesses are not practiced.
----------Allah directs us that when Azan for Juma prayers is heard, we
should hasten earnestly to the Masjid and when the prayer is finished
we should disperse (Al_Quraan_062: 009-010). But after Juma Namaz, our
professional Imams unnecessarily make long DUA for all of us which is
Bidah as the duty of an Imam is to lead the prayers only which any
Muslim can do. That is why Allah has strictly prohibited priesthood
(Al_Quraan_009:031, 034 / 057:027). Follow Allah not Mulla.
----------Almighty Allah understand and listens directly all Duas,
requests, Ilteja, calls, actions, movements etc. of sane and insane
persons, deaf and dumb persons, sick and disabled persons and also
calls, movements of Angels, Satan, animals, fish etc.
(Al_Quraan_002:186 / 040:060 / 050:016 / 056:085) being the Creator.
Hence make your own Dua directly to Allah after Namaz also. It is not
necessary to make DUA in Arabic only as Allah is above languages
Our Mulla community since generations have been misguiding us that
Arabic is the holy language of Allah and as such we should learn Arabic
with correct pronouncing to read/recite and also do Hifz/memorization
of Holy Quran without understanding not at all supported in the Holy
Quran. Islam is a Universal Deen and Holy Quran being an eternal
Book of Guidance to entire humanity not Arabs alone, we should read
Quranic translation with its explanation in our own language again and
again to understand and follow Islam correctly to achieve Allah’s
Blessings. Please avoid ‘worshiping’ the Holy Quran and keeping it on
high altar and not touching and reading it without Wudu. Wudu is
only needed when you are totally unclean. Allah is above
languages, dialects etc. and HIS previous three Holy Books i.e. Torah,
Zaboor and Bible were not bestowed in Arabic but in the then prevalent
languages of the time to warn and guide the then deviated humanity to
HIS Right Path.
………Allah says there are many exploiting
Aalims/Mullas/Moulvis/Imams etc. who misguide the people from the
Right Path of Allah and unjustly earn money (Al_Quraan_009:034). We
should avoid such professional money-earning Mullas/Masjid Imams
who do not promote Quranic Guidance/Mohkmaath (Al_Quraan_003:007) nor
hold Dars-e-Quran session regularly but confuse us with weak and
fabricated Hadiths, tales, stories, sayings, traditions etc. and have
made Islam a ‘fairy tale’ type religion to waste our time and energy.
--------Allah asks us to hold fast to HIS rope to remain united as a
single Brotherhood/One Ummah and worship HIM alone and not to get
divided into sects etc. (sub sects, Maslak, Fiqahs, cults of Pirs,
Faqirs, Babas, Taghoots, various leaders of religious.
Al-Quraan, the Miracle of Miracles and free from contradictions and
