The Disbelief

According to 2001 census, 15% of the Indians are Muslims. But most of the Indian Muslims do not believe this official figure. They think it skilfully manipulated to serve their political purpose. The Hindu ruling clique strongly feels that a higher figure will generate more sense of deprivation; and may cause more unrest among the Muslims. Currently, the Muslims don’t have even a 3 per cent stake in the government jobs -as revealed by the statistical data and the facts-finding minority commissions set up by the government. These commissions comprising some ex-judges are usually formed after a major anti-Muslim massacre, mostly to minimize the post-massacre anger.

The Greatest Sin

Knowledge plays the most crucial role in transforming man’s fate: both here and in the hereafter. And ignorance works as the most devastating curse, and its consequences are extremely awful. Knowledge gives light, and ignorance brings darkness. People deny Allah, His guidance and His prophets and get deviated from the right path due to ignorance. Ignorant men engage in major sins, and ultimately reach the hellfire. Thus it nullifies the whole purpose of human’s survival. Such man lives only to add failures in the hereafter.  In fact, human’s greatest sin is his ignorance (jahiliyah). The pre-Islamic jaheliyah in Arabia ended more than 1400 years ago, but modern man’s jahiliyah even thrives with all his scientific knowledge and material progress. The idolatry, gambling, alcoholism, obscenity, homosexuality, pornography, torture, mass murdering, ethnic cleansing, economic exploitation and other vile acts thus still survive with the ancient scale of ignorance and arrogance.

The Most Crippling Disability

The most crippling disability of a man is not physical, rather intellectual and moral. The people with physical disabilities -like broken arm, missing leg or blind eye, can incredibly cope with day-to-day difficulties. The insight of such men remains intact; therefore can still live a life as a sensible and responsible man in a society. But people with moral blindness or intellectual debility can cause massive destruction to themselves and to others: can even wreck the whole moral, social and political fabrics of a country. Civilisations, countries and societies get their demise not due to shortage of food or wealth, but due to the works of these morally sick people.

How important is the important issue?

Like a piece of melting ice, our expected days of life are shrinking each day. But surprisingly, many people live this life without knowing its ultimate purpose! Even not realising the most important issue! They exactly resemble a man who drives days and nights without knowing the roadmap. Whatever efforts he puts only expedite his journey towards a wrong destination. Are we among them? A good job, a nice house, good food and professional skills are mere means of our survival. But it is most important to live this life to meet its assigned purpose. Even in ancient ages, people showed wonderful skills. They built pyramids, raised huge wall on mountains and preserved decaying deaths for ages.

Islamic Movement: Extremism or Expression of True Belief? PDF Print E-mail

Like Islam, Islamic movement too, is highly misunderstood by both the Muslims and the non-Muslims. Many people think it mere a political cry of a few extremist fanatics for capturing power. To them, it is not a core belief of the mainstream Muslim faith, but a doctrine of a few. So they label them as deviants from Islam. Movement itself gives a connotation that it entails educating, training, organising and mobilising people for a political end. They can not think of such a political agenda for Muslims in any Muslim and non-Muslim country. Instead, they have their own prescription for the Muslims. According to them, Islam has nothing to do with politics, culture, law or economics of a country. These are the worldly domains only to be managed by the secularists or non-religious people. They advice Muslims to restrict the Islamic influence within their individual lives, at best inside mosques. They must not the cross that boundary to enter arenas of statecraft. With such conceptual framework they argue, why should Muslim have an Islamic movement? Political and social movement, according to them, is the sole privilege of the secularists whom they consider the right people to run a country. They can not think that a religion should take control of a state. They consider it a gross violation of its boundary.
