THE TRUTH By SAHEB Waliulla of Thanjavur

 

Dear Brothers,Sisters,

Assalammu Alikum Wa Rahamathallahi Wa Barakataho.
We are really honored to present the small gratitude on the auspicious day of the 19th urs mubarak of HAZRAT SYED SHA SIRAJUDDIN MUHAMMED SAQAF TAZIM TARAK QADRI SHUTTARI NAQSABANDI CHISTI urf HAZRAT SYED SHA ISMATH PASHA SAQAF QADIRI SHUTTARI NAQSABANDI CHISTI also known as SAHEB VALIULLAH of Thanjavur On 8/9th Jamd-e-awal 1431 hijri (24/25th April 2010)

"THE TRUTH " by HAZRAT SYED SHA SIRAJUDDIN MUHAMMED SAQAF TAZIM TARAK QADRI SHUTTARI and also known as HAZRAT SYED SHA ISMATH PASHA SAQAF QADIRI SHUTTARI rahmatullahi alaihi published in the year 1409 Hijri / January 1989 & 2nd Edition on 1410 Hijri/1-1-1990.

Presently we are witnessing things falsified to a great extent and this small book throws light on some of the hadiths (sayings of the Holy Prophet - Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him ) which is relevant to the current circumstances.

This book is being copied as it is and being forwarded by email after minor alteration.
Note:-This book was provided with old English Quarnic translation by Pickthal and has been replaced with the Quranic translations of Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan: Mohammed Aaqib Qadri for better understanding.

F O R E W O R D

It is not only essential for every Human being to cultivate better qualities in him but it is as much important to shun the bad habits. That religion which encourages sound and acceptable principles avoiding all evils would be received universally and would spread like wildfire sans opposition. Almighty ALLAH SUBHANATAALA praises the qualities of Prophet MOHAMMED ( Peace And Blessings Be upon Him ) in the HOLY QUR'AN thus:

''INNAKA LA ALA KHULUKHIN AZEEM''
Meaning,
(And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character). Not telling lies was the most appreciable quality in you followed by love towards all. ALLAH further says,

'' LA THAJZIU -ASSAIYO BISSAIYIAATI''
Meaning,
''MOHAMMED (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) you never retaliated- you never uttered even a single word against even to your worst enemies, who were causing all kinds of hardships to you. When his followersurged him to curse his bitter critics and enemies, Prophet MOHAMMED (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) never obliged them.On the other hand he prayed to ALLAH humbly for the welfare of his enemies.

''Oh ALLAH ! show my community the right path, because they are innocent'' Was his constant prayer.Prophet MOHAMMED (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) never hated anyone till his very end and he pleaded ALLAH thus:

''ALLAHUMMA AHYEENI : MISJEENA (M) WA AMITNIMISKEENA (M) V VAHSHURAI FI ZUAMRATHIL MASAAKEEN.''

''Oh ALLAH! let me be among poor people and lead a poverty-stricken life, till the end. Even when I am awaken on the final day let me be in the midst of poor and and innocent people.''

Such acommunity as this , which preaches love,restraint,brotherhood, and which truly folloes the dictates of Almighty ALLAH will flourish for ever.If the followers of ISLAM do not adhere to these simple principles then no power in this world will ever be able to help and save them.

One of the greastest qualities of Prophet MUHAMMAD (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) was that he never used to spare the believers for their mistakes but gave them the due punishment. Moreover, if a non muslim, be it rich or poor did any good deed (NEKI)
the Prophet MUHAMMED (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) whole heartedly used to applaud him.

************************************** T H E T R U T H ***************************************

Viewing the present chaotic world where the ideologies of communism and capitalism have failed to bring progress and peace, only ISLAM has the capacity to overcome this strife. One could see ISLAM marching ahead of all the ''isms'' and breaking new grounds.

Of late all those who used to praise communism and hoist its flag are sick with it.
Likewise people are also getting fed up with Capitalism, from which they used to seek solutions earlier. The failure of these 'isms' has been a triumph for ISLAM.

The people of POLAND who, till the recent past, had been such vociferous supporters of Communism are now craving for freedom. Communism is bidding farewell to HUNGARY & CZCHOSLOVAKIA. The staunch supporters of 'Communism' now act against it.Communism was said to have come to the world to rescue the people from the exploitative hands of capitalists.Then why has it become a failure?

Why the working class in these countries has started revolting against Communism?
Why has China started discarding ''MAOISM'' and COMMUNISM? The latest entrant is Burma. Thus Communism is proving a failure in EAST EUROPE & ASIA.

The situation in the other developed countries is also no better.People there are also fed up with the style and mode of living. They are in search for such mode of living which will lay a strong foundation for a serene and peaceful life. It is this groping in the dark which has brought them closer to the light of ISLAM. Time is not far away when these people will embrace ISLAM.A Christian researcher David D Perez has analysed the positions of all the religions and concludes thus :

i ) that the believers in GOD are increasing day by day.

ii) that the population of the MUSLIMS is 120 crores and that everyday thousands are embracing ISLAM.

iii) that shortly, ISLAM will become the dominant religion in this world.

This rising wave towards ISLAM has created confusion in the minds of the people all over the world. The enemies want the super powers to jointly wage a war against it. Great Britain is also not an exception. The MUSLIMS in Britain are mostly settlers from other countries. These settlers could neither force nor lure the majority towards ISLAM. Still one just cannot understand how ISLAM is spreading so rapidly there. It is because, the educated people there feel that the spirit of ISLAM is natural, purely practical, real, dynamic and that it transcends over all the RACES in the world.

A debate in the British Parliament on the deteriorating moral values among the youth, which took place during 1987 illustrates the fact better. A British M.P. remarked ''by preaching Christianity one could not improve their condition but by preaching the tenets of ISLAM one could improve the situation. ''A Russian Revolutionary points out, ''I am unable to understand the latest surge towards ISLAM,

But I am a witness to the changing attitudes of the 5crore Russian MUSLIMS. ''Those who become a hurdle in the path of ISLAM will have a disastrous end. History bears testimony to this and this could be understood with the sad end of EGYPT'S Anwar-us-Sadat and Shah of IRAN to quote a few. The Russian leadership is vehemently opposed to the rise in the MUSLIMS in the MOSQUES of Khazakistan has made the Russians jittery.

Nearly 2000 churches in America and Europe have been converted into MOSQUES. Newly constructed MOSQUES are coming up in big numbers all over Europe. America alone accounts for 4crores and 70lakh MUSLIMS. Among the converts in U.S 2 out of 3 are women. These converts remark that when they embrace ISLAM they leave their unethical, disastrous past and step into the serene surrounding of ISLAM. In India ISLAM is blamed for compelling pardah to women.

Then why are the advanced American women embracing ISLAM ? The above facts clearly indicate that people embrace ISLAM out of their own free will and not by force and sword. In India one tells that only the oppressed people embrace ISLAM but the above case proves the 'Hi-Tech' people-the Westerners-are foremost in EMBRACING ISLAM.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& REASONS FOR ISLAM TO SPREAD &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Some of the reasons and quotation given below will enumerate the facts about the spread of ISLAM. The first is the belief in one and only GOD (TAUHEED). This is such a simple and glorious declaration which is appreciated and liked by everyone.

In this regard a famous advocate of Lahore LAHA RAMCHANDANI declares,''I have done a lot of research on the biography of Prophet MUHAMMED(Peace Be upon Him)and I have scanned the research done by both the critics and supporters and i have found that no one diputes over the glorious and eminent works done by the prophet of ISLAM. I am surprised at the fact that in such short span of TWELVE years,The followers of ISLAM have won 36,000 forts and cities with the victory of 8 battle in a single day. The secret of the success and rise of ISLAM is due to its STRONG PRINCIPLES. The RISHIS of India and the Prophets prior to Prophet MUHAMMED(Peace Be upon Him) laid a regid stress on the belief that there is one GOD, but it was only the Prophet of ISLAM who could spread the message of one GOD''TAUHEED'' so lucidly and so impressively across the whole world.''

The other principles which lay a solid stress are the concept of BROTHERHOOD and EQUALITY, the oppression (ZULM) of people,service towards the weak (MAZLOOM), to answer GOD on the day of JUDGMENT. ISLAM strongly restrains people from generating jealousy, hatred (antipathy) and to talk at the back of the people. It points out that all are the creations (BANDE) of GOD and hence one should communicate well with others and with profound affection.

Dr.Gestavalli Barnes in his book 'Civilization of India' (Page 440) writes '' During the olden days the HINDUS tried to prove ''TAUHEED'' (ONE GOD) but all their attemts and persuasions were in vain.They worshiped anything as GOD''.

Prof. R.C.Dutt in his book ''Old India (Hindustan-e-Khadeem') Mocks at the practices prevalent in India and acknowledges that it was due to ISLAM that people became civilized. Prof.Tara Chand also confirms the position, the change that ISLAM brought and the respect the Musalman (MUSLIM) Commanded, in his book ''INFLUENCES OF ISLAM ON INDIAN CULTURE''. This book pays a high compliment to the tenets of ISLAM.

*********** Let us take alook at the HOLY QUR'AN and HADEES ( quotations) ***********

&&&&&&&&&&&& Prophet MUHAMMED (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) Says, &&&&&&&&&&&&

'' VERY SOON YOU WILL FIND PEOPLE AT THE TEMPLES WHO ARE SETTLED THERE DON'T DISTURB THEM. DON'T HARM (KILL) CHILDREN, WOMEN,OLD PEOPLE AND DON'T DESTROY TREES.''
BUKHARI SHAREEF.
Such is the restraint ISLAM preaches regarding the place of worship of other religions. Who else except the MUSLIMS will follow this principle.

The Prophet of ISLAM PRACTISED WHAT THE PREACHED. The incident below just gives one example.

''Once a funeral procession was passing by and Prophet (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him),on seeing it stood up.His companions (Sahabas) informed him that it was the funeral procession of a non-believer-(Kafir) Jew. To this ,Prophet (Peace Be upon Him) questiond '' Is he not created (Banda) by GOD ? One should stand up and pay respect when procession of the departed soul passes by, irrespective of the caste,creed and community to which he belongs''.
BUKHARI SHAREEF,TIRMIZHI.

>>>>>>>>>>>>> ON Kindness Prophet (Peace Be upon Him) said: <<<<<<<<<<<<<<

''GOD WILL NOT SHOW MERCY TO HIM WHO DOES NOT SHOW MERCY TO OTHER''
-BUKHARI AND MUSLIM.
Once a man felt very thirsty and he saw a well at a little distance. He got down into the well and quenched his thirst and when he came up he saw a dog waiting for water. The man quickly got down once again, took water in his boots and made the thirsty dog drink it .Prophet remarked. '' for this act of kindness his sins will be forgiven '' At this , the companions of the Prophet (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) questioned. ''DOES ALLAH REWARD FOR SHOWING MERCY ON ANIMALS''? YES OFCOURSE''! said Prophet (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him).

The people once asked Prophet (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) about which aspect of ISLAM was the best, he replied

''THAT YOU SHOULD PROVIDE FOOD FOR THE NEEDY AND GREET BOTH, THOSE YOU KNOW AND ALSO TO THOSE YOU DO NOT KNOW''.
BUKHARI SHAREEF AND MUSLIM.

***************************** THE HOLY QUR'AN SAYS FURTHER:***************************

''AND WHEN YOU ARE GREETED WITH SOME WORDS, GREET BACK WITH WORDS BETTER THAN IT OR WITH THE SAME''

''SURAH : AN-NISA(WOMEN) Verse 86.''

The position of Women has changed a little now. She is a slave of man and his ideas. If she becomes a widow, she is forced to burn herself or she is made an out caste (manhoos) and she is looked upon with contempt. She is not alloeed to participate in functuons and is made to lead a secluded life. An editorial in the 'INDIAN EXPRESS' dated 08-09-1988 is a stark testimonial on the atrocities on womwn and the barbarious practice of child (GIRL) infanticide. But ISLAM gives an equal status and prominence to women.The HOLY QUR'AN says on women:

''AND DO NOT LONG FOR THINGS BY WHICH ALLAH HAS GIVEN SUPERIORITY TO SOME OF YOU OVER OTHERS; FOR MEN IS THE SHARE OF WHAT THEY EARN;''

''SURAH : AN-NISA(WOMEN) 32''.
and
''O MANKIND ! FEAR YOUR LORD WHO CREATED YOU FROM A SINGLE SOUL AND FROM IT CREATED ITS SPOUSE''

''SURAH : AN-NISA( WOMEN) 01''.

''INDEED WE HAVE HONOURED THE DESCENDANTS OF ADAM''

''SURAH: AL-ISRA (THE NIGHT JOURNEY, CHILDREN OF ISRAEL 70''.

From the above verses it is crystal clear regarding the honor, status and respect given to women In ISLAM women are given the right to remarry and ISLAM forbids men from looking at her with downcast eyes or (degrade her).

Now let us look into some of the verses of HOLY QUR'AN and HADEES in relation to JUSTICE (ADAL) in ISLAM.

''AND THAT WHENEVER YOU JUDGE BETWEEN PEOPLE, JUDGE WITH FAIRNESS; UNDOUBTEDLY ALLAH GIVES YOU AN EXCELLENT ADVICE; INDEED ALLAH IS ALL HEARING, ALL SEEING.

''SURAH : AN-NISA (WOMEN) 58''.

''AND IF YOU DO JUDGE BETWEEN THEM, JUDGE WITH FAIRNESS; INDEED ALLAH LOVES THE EQUIABLE.

'' SURAH : AL-MAEDA (THE TABLE, THE TABLE SPREAD) 42''.

O PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE! BE FIRM IN ESTABLISHING JUSTICE, GIVING FOR ALLAH ,EVEN IF IT IS HARMFUL TO YOURSELVES OR PARENTS OR RELATIVES;
WHETHER THE ONE YOU TESTIFY AGAINST IS WEALTHY OR POOR, FOR IN ANY CASE ALLAH HAS THE GREATER RIGHT OVER IT ; THEN DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR WISHES FOR YOU MAY STRAY FROM THE TRUTH; AND IF YOU DISTORT TESTIMONY OR TRUN AWAY, THEN ALLAH IS WELL AWARE OF YOUR DEEDS.

''SURAH : AN-NISA (WOMEN) 135''.

ALLAH commands to do justice alwayss and that justice be meted out to all.The passages below will enlighten the finer points and the spirit of JUSTICE.

After the conquest of MAKKA, when the whole of ARABIA came under the domination of the ISLAMIC STATE, the HOLY PROPHET (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him)addressed the members of his own clan, who in the days before ISLAM enjoyed the same status in ARABIA as the Brahmins did in ancient INDIA and said:

Oh! people of Quresh! ALLAH has rooted out your haughtiness of the days of Ignorance and descended from ADAM and ADAM was made of CLAY. There is no pride whatever in ancestry; ther is no merit in an ARAB as against a non ARAB nor in an ARAB as sgainst an ARAB. Verily the most meritorious among you in the eyes of GOD; is he who is the most pious''.

In such a society no individual or group of individuals will suffer any disability on account of birth, social status or profession that may in any way impede the groth of his individual faculties or hamper the development of his personality. Every one would enjoy equal opportunities of progress. The unrestricted scope for personal and collective achievement has been the HALLMARK OF ISLAMIC SOCIETY. The Holy Prophet (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) has said:

Listen and obey, even if a Negro is appointed Governor over you''. So there is absolutely no room for racial discrimination or prejudices. In ISLAMIC LAW even the Governor or the Caliph is not above law and can be sued in a court and will not be entitled to any discriminatory treatment in the court. ISLAM does not permit taking sides in party politics without considering the TRUTH and JUSTICE.

This spirit of ISLAM demands that if you find a person to be in the right, you should support him, but if the same person goes wrong in any other matter you should dissent from him.

In ISLAM the judiciary has been made entirely independent of the executive. The task of the judge is to implement and enforce GOD's Law among His servants. He dose not sit on the seat of justice in the capacity of a representative of the CALIPH or the AMEER (LEADER), but as a representative of GOD,ALMIGHTY. A petty labourer, a poor peasant and a destitute beggar, all have the right to lodge a suit in the QAZI'S court against the highest person even the CALIPH himself. The QAZI, on the other hand, is fully authorised to apply the law of GOD to the CALIPH as done to any ordinary MUSLIM-in case the plaintiff is found to have justiceon his side. In like manner, if the CALIPH has any personal grievance against any one, he is not entitled to obtain redress by using tis own administrative authority, but he is, according to the constitution, obliged; like any other common citizen, to seek justice in a court of law.

The Holy Qur'an is very clear regarding the concentration of wealth in the hands of rich.

''THAT IT DOES NOT BECOME THE WELTH OF THE RICH AMONG YOU''.

''SURAH : AL-HASHR (EXILE,BANISHMENT)-(7)''

The Holy Qur'an is explicit in protecting the wealth: ''Give full measure and full weight in justice and wrong not people in respect of their goods. And do not evil in the earth, causing corruption.''

The Propht (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) exhorts people from disturbing those who are in the remembrance or worship of GOD even if they are non Muslim.

''You will come across saints (ELDERLY people among the non- Muslim) who will always be in search of GOD. Leave them alone for their purpose''.

-HADEES-AIMO'ATA.

Hazrath Omar (Radi-Allahu-Anhu) recollect an incident. When Prophet (Peace And Blessings Be upon Him) was informed about the slaughter of children, he immediately rushed to the place , and cried a lot. A companion (Shaba) ponited out that they were children of non-believers (Mushrekeen) and that there was no need to feel sad.Prophet (Peace and Blessings Be upon Him) got wild and said ''THESE CHILDREN ARE BETTER THAN YOU, BECAUSE THEY ARE INNOCENT. AND WERE YOU ALL NOT THE CHILDREN OF NON-BELIEVERS (Mushrikeen)? Beware! Don't kill children.'' ISLAM gives a lot of prominence for peace.

*************************************HOLYQUR'AN Says****************************************

AND IF THEY INCLINE TOWARDS PEACE, YOU TOO LEAN TOWARDS IT, AND TRUST ALLAH ; INDEED HE ONLY IS THE ALL HEARING, THE ALL KNOWING.

''SURAH: AL-ANFAL (SPOILS OF WAR,BOOTY) -(61)

And when an enemy puts down his weapon and wishes to accept peace then accept it.

''THEN IF THEY AVOID YOU AND DO NOT WAGE WAR AGAINST YOU AND MAKE AN OFFER OF PEACE- THEN ALLAH HAS NOT KEPT FOR YOU A WAY AGAINST THEM''.

''SURAH: AN-NISA(WOMEN)-(90)

This was the case of a group (Jamath) but what should be done if an individual or two from the enemy come to you?

''AND O DEAR PROPHET MOHAMMED( Peace and Blessings Be upon Him),IF A POLYTHEIST SEEKS YOUR PROTECTION, GIVE HIM PROTECTION SO THAT HE MAY HEAR THE WORD OF ALLAH, AND THEN TRANSPORT HIM TO HIS PLACE OF SAFETY;

''SURAH:AL-TAWBA(REPENTANCE)-(6)''.

Hence from the above, it is clear that,if in ISLAM there was to be enemity with a Non-Muslim then a Muslim would not have allowed his enemy to go free as in the sbove case.
Islam preaches patience when any derogatory remarks are passed on one.

THEREFORE (O DEAR PROPHET MOHAMMED- PEACE AND BLESSING BE UPON HIM) PATIENTLY BEAR UPON WHAT THEY SAY, AND PRAISING YOUR LORD SAY HIS PURITY BEFORE THE SUN RISES AND BEFORE THE SUN SETS.

'' SURAH- QAF (39)
We well known what they say
Hence, ALLAH will look after these wrong doers and will do whatever he likes.

The above verse openly shows the character and heart of the follower of ISLAM.

The Holy Quran spells doom for a community which indulges in violence.

AND MANY A GENERATION WE DID DESTROY BEFORE THEM, WHO EXCEEDED THEM IN STRENTH, THEREFORE VENTURING IN THE CITIES! IS THERW A PLACE TO ESCAPE?

''SURAH- QAF- (36)
PROPHET MOHAMMED(PEACE AND BLESSING BE UPON HIM) Says ''A MOMIN is one who keeps the wealth of others well protected and shows interest in the welfare of others''
TIRIMIDHI

The PROPHET MOHAMMED(PEACE AND BLESSING BE UPON HIM) used to take care not only about the welfare of the MUSLIMS but also used to take of the Jews, Christians and the non- believers. He used to enquire about them during the days of their distress to the extent that when a lady who used to throw waste daily on the PROPHET MOHAMMED (PEACE AND BLESSING BE UPON HIM)fell ill , PROPHET (PEACE AND BLESSING BE UPON HIM) came to know about this and personally went to her house to enquire about her health.
TIRIMIDHI.
Prophet MOHAMMED (Peace and Blessing Be Upon Himm) Says:

''YOU ARE CREATED FOR MAKING LIFE SIMPLE AND DO NOT PUT OTHERS IN DIFFICULTIES''
-BUKHARI SHAREEF.

ISLAM strongly forbids acts of compulsion (coercion) ISLAM does not force its views on the NON MUSLIMS either.

''THERE IS NO COMPULSION AT ALL IN RELIGION;
- SURAH- THE COW-(256)

''WE WELL KNOW WHAT THEY SAY (O DEAR PROPHET MOHAMMED-Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) AND YOU ARE NOT ONE TO USE FORCE OVER THEM;
-SURAH-QAF-(45)

When Prophet MOHAMMED(Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) WAS WORRYING VERY MUCH ON HOW TO BRING THE NON-BELIEVERS TO THE RIGHT PATH, ALLAH SENT AN AYATH(Verse)

''And if their aversion is grievous unto thee, then if thou caust, seek a way down into the earth or a ladder unto the sky that thou mayst bring unto them a portent ( to convice them all)

And if Allah willed , they would not ascribe (any partner to him)
-SURAH- THE CATTLE-(107)

Hence, it is crystal clear to leave the non-believers on their own and not to disturb their beliefs. The Holy Quran orders man to keep his promise.

' ''And fulfill the promise ''
and

''THOSE WHO KEEP THEIR TREATY WHEN THEY MADE ONE, AND IS PATIENT IN TRIBULATION AND ADVERSITY; Such are those who are sincere. Such are the GOD fearing''.

-SURAH?

The saints of ISLAM, Where ever they went, spread the message of love and peace and brought prosperity to that place where ever they settled down during their life time and after.( AJMER, DELHI, BOMBAY, NAGORE, and GUJARAT to name a few )ISLAM also forbids a MUSLIM from participating in an act of oppression.

''When one oppresses the other and if one sides with the oppressor then he is in the wrong''.

HADEES.
Even if a Muslim take sides with his companion in an act of oppression it was not liked by Prophet MOHAMMED (Peace and blessings Be Upon Him) who says that such persons will not enter paradise.

Prophet says:

''If others treat well, you also treat well, and if they do wrong, we will do wrong; but accustom yourselves to do good, if people do good and not to do wrong if they do evil''.
TIRIMIDHI
Hence from above it is clear that one should restrain himself and do good even when others do wrong.

Prophet MOHAMMED ( Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him ) not only used to praise the good deeds of Muslims but also to appreciate and praise the qualities and ideas of Non-Muslims. An incident from the book ''ASAD-UL GABA 'a' testifies this:

''Bani She'aban, Maghrur Bin Amer, Harisa Bin Qhabisa, Nauman Bin Shareeq, Musanah Bin Harisa met Prophet MOHAMMED ( Peace and Blessing Be Upon Him) for a discussion. After listening to the way in which they talk and watching their behaviour, Prophet MOHAMMED ( Peace and Blessing Be Upon Him) remarked to Hazrath ALI and Hazrath ABU BAKR.( Radialalhu anhu ) ''LOOK HOW GOOD THE CHARACTER AND IDEAS OF THESE PEOPLE, WHO LIVE IN AN UNCIVILIZED STATE''.

The emphasis on justice and kindness is again stressed in the verse below:

''Lo Allah enjoineth justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk and forbiddeth lewdness and abomintion and wickedness''.

ISLAM forbids interference in the matters of the other religions.

''For each nation We have made the rules of worship for them to follow - so never should they quarrel with you in this matter''.

SURAH-AL HAJJ (THE PILGRIMAGE)-67
A Muslim has been asked to believein all the books and scriptures sent down by ALLAH:

''I believe in whatever scripture ALLAH has sent down......unto you your works and unto us our works, no argument between us and you''.

One should not take sides with those who're on the wrong path which causes pain, destructionand disharmony whether it is a man,a race, or community or a nation and should take side with those who are on the right path.

According to Shri Boshamker Nath Pandey the editor of 'Nai -Hind (1978) says that the reason for ISLAM to spreadis its revolutionary teaching.

'' Prophet MOHAMMED (Peace and Blessing Be Upon Him)occupies one of the greatest positih amoung men. He destroyed the barbarian customs and practices of the Arabs. The Arabs who used to worship hundreds and thousand of Gods and Godesses were made to worship only one GOD.

He aiso brought together the hundreds of warring tribes and united them into one of love.

Through education he brought a sea change in the character of Arabs. It's amazing that the barbarian Arabs were totally civilized within a short period of 23year''

He adds further ''Quran teaches us that religion is to wipe out the divisions among men, to stop war among nation and never should religion be the cause of all upheavals and divisions.

THE HOLY PROPHET (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him)SAID

''Do not terminate relation with the acquaintances of your father. Take them as elders and maintain relation . If you break them God shall cease the glow (NOOR) of
your heart and face.''

-TUBBANI
The above article thus proves to a certain extent the reasons for people embracing ISLAM so enthusiastically and following the glorious principles of ISLAM.

FOR PRESENT POLITICAL AND SOCIAL NEEDS OF THIS WORLD ISLAM IS ESSENTIAL, AND THE ONLY ANSWER.

Prof. Ernest Glone, renowned socioologist and a JEW in an interview to financial ' TIMES' of LONDAN has tries to find an explanation how ISLAM has stood so firmly and has spread so much inspite of the presence of disbelivers while other religions have almost lost all their exclusive ideals they possessed particulary their political base.

The professor was successful in proving that ISLAM preches equality and brings to light the myths which prevented the Westerners from knowing the true picture of ISLAM.

Unlike other religions there is no place for myths and superstitious beliefs in ISLAM.

ISLAM is very essential for the fulfilment of the needs of the latest emerging social order. ISLAM has weathered many a storm and stood solidly on its basic principles.

The fast changing world requires some sort of order and some control to sustain and keep in balance this system. And all these things are brought about by ISLAM in every individual.

HENCE ISLAM IS VITAL FOR THE PRESENT DAY.

Prof.Ernest Glone further disqualifies the theory and the ideology that ISLAM wants to increase its members by compulsion or violent means for political gains which will result in destruction. On the contrary ISLAM wants to establish the sovereignty of GOD on the people with Justice for PEACE and WELL BEING of MANKIND.Thus to attain the sbove two we see the surge towards ISLAM.

ISLAM OVERSHADOWS ALL ''ISMS''
