MiladunNabi,Mawlid UnNabi 2010

26 Feb

 
Dehr mein Aaiey Noor-e-Mujassam Kufr pe Chaya Aalam Hoo ka
Apni Dukan-e-Shirk Bar’ha ker Bhaag gaey sub Marqas-o-Looqa
Shaitaan Naar-e-Hasad mein Jal ker Reh gaya pee ker Ghoont Lahoo ka
Waqt-e-Wiladat-e-Shah-e-Do Aalam Na’ra thaa yeh her Sar-e-Moo ka
Ja’Alhaqu Wazahaqal BaaTil; Innal BaaTila Kaana Zahooqa

All Praise is due to Allah subHanuhu wa Ta’ala, Countless Durood and Salutations upon the best of creation Sayyaduna wa Habeebuna Qurrat Aeenuna Muhammadur Rasoolullah Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam.

In present era we are suffering sects and scholars who imposes verdicts of Shirk and Bid’at on those who celebrate Mawlid an-Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam with great enthusiasm and integrity and due to which the simple and straight peoples who are less in knowledge of Qur’an and Hadith gets nervous whether they are following the TURHT or not.

Here is proof from QUR’AN al-Kareem and Sayings of Prophet Peace Be Upon Him which show beyond a shadow of a doubt that Celebrating Milad-un-Nabi Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam is absolutely Lawful.

 ..:: The Holy Qur’an Says ::..
 

قَالَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا أَنزِلْ عَلَيْنَا مَآئِدَةً مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ تَكُونُ لَنَا عِيداً لِّأَوَّلِنَا وَآخِرِنَا وَآيَةً مِّنكَ وَارْزُقْنَا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الرَّازِقِينَ
Issa son of Maryam submitted, ‘O Allah our Lord, ‘sends down to us a tray of food from the heaven so that it may be an occasion of rejoicing for us, for the first and the last of us and a sign from You, and provide for us and you are the best of Providers. (Surah Al-Ma’idah, Verse 114)

The day when food is sent from skies is day of rejoicing (EID); then the day when soul of universe Peace be with him was born must be the rejoice for the day of rejoicing.

Look what ALLAH have said:

وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثْ
And publicize well the favors of your Lord. (Surah Al-Duha, Verse 11)

ALLAH himself commemorating Milad in Holy Qar’an as we do in our gatherings, Allah Says in the Holy Qur’an:

 هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَكَفَى بِاللَّهِ شَهِيدًا
It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth that he may make it prevail over all other religions And Sufficient is Allah as witness. (Surah Al-Fatha, Verse 28)

وَإِذْ قَالَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ يَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِنِّي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُم مُّصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيَّ مِنَ التَّوْرَاةِ وَمُبَشِّرًا بِرَسُولٍ يَأْتِي مِن بَعْدِي اسْمُهُ أَحْمَدُ فَلَمَّا جَاءَهُم بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ قَالُوا هَذَا سِحْرٌ مُّبِينٌ
And remember when Issa son of Maryam, said, ‘O children of Israel, I am Allah’s Messenger to you, confirming the previous Book Tourat before me and conveying the glad news of the Messenger who will come after me, his name is Ahmad! ‘ But when Ahmed came to them with bright signs, they said, ‘this is an open magic.’ (Surah As-Saf, Verse 6)

لَقَدْ جَاءَكُمْ رَسُولٌ مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ عَزِيزٌ عَلَيْهِ مَا عَنِتُّمْ حَرِيصٌ عَلَيْكُم بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَؤُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ
Assuredly there has come to you a messenger from among yourselves, heavy upon him is your suffering; ardently desirous of your welfare, and to Muslims is most Kind and Merciful. (Surah Tauba, Verse 128)

لَقَدْ مَنَّ اللّهُ عَلَى الْمُؤمِنِينَ إِذْ بَعَثَ فِيهِمْ رَسُولاً مِّنْ أَنفُسِهِمْ يَتْلُواْ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُواْ مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ
Undoubtedly, Allah did a great favor to the Muslims that in them from among themselves sent a Messenger who recites unto them His signs and purifies them and teaches them the Book and wisdom, and necessarily before that they were certainly in apparent error. (Surah Al-Imran, Section 17, Verse 164)

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ قَدْ جَاءَتْكُم مَّوْعِظَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَشِفَاءٌ لِّمَا فِي الصُّدُورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۔۔۔ قُلْ بِفَضْلِ اللّهِ وَبِرَحْمَتِهِ فَبِذَلِكَ فَلْيَفْرَحُواْ هُوَ خَيْرٌ مِّمَّا يَجْمَعُونَ
O people! There has come an admonition to you from your Lord, and healing of hearts, and guidance and a mercy for the believers. Say you, ‘only Allah’ grace and only His mercy, on it therefore let them rejoice. That is better than all their wealth. (Surah Al-Yunus, Verse 57,58)

And this is what we do, we celebrate; we rejoice; we do spend our money to show gratitude to ALLAH Almighty on his greatest mercy and Blessing i.e. celebrations of Milad-un-Nabi because Qur’an Says:

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ
And We sent not you, but a mercy for all worlds. (Surah Al-Anbiya, Verse 107)

 ..:: See in the light of aHadith ::..
 

Let us have the opinions of Prophet (Peace be with him) who himself celebrated his Birthday. See Muslim Sharif:

عَنْ أَبِى قَتَادَةَ الأَنْصَارِىِّ رضى الله عنه أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- سُئِلَ عَنْ صَوْمِ الاِثْنَيْنِ فَقَالَ « فِيهِ وُلِدْتُ وَفِيهِ أُنْزِلَ عَلَىَّ
Abi Qatada Ansari (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about fasting on Monday, whereupon he said: It is (the day) when I was born and revelation was sent down to me.

3. Sahih Muslim, Vol1, Page 7
4. Asadul Gaba fee Ma’arfatis Sahaba, Vol1, Page 21-22, Published in Lahore 1987

When Prophet (Peace be with him) is celebrating his birthday not yearly but every Monday then how it can be Shirk or Bid’at?

ورأت أمي حين حملت بى أنه خرج منها نور أضاء له قصور بصرى من أرض الشام
Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said: “When my mother gave birth to me she saw a light proceeding from her which showed her the castles of Syria”

Pupil of Imam Malik and the teacher of Imam Ahmed Bin Hanbal and Hafizul Hadith Abdul Razzak Abu Bakr Bin Hamman, the teacher of the teachers of Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim, in his Book “Musannaf”, has narrated from Hadrat Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari and his son (Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhum), that he asked the Holy Messenger of ALLAH Ta’aala (Peace Be Upon Him)

روى عبد الرزاق -فيما قيل- عن جابر رضي الله عنه قال: “قلت: يا رسول الله بأبي أنت وأمّي أخبرني عن أول شىء خلقه الله تعالى قبل الأشياء؟ قال: يا جابر إن الله تعالى خلق قبل الأشياء نور نبيّك من نوره فجعل ذلك النور يدور بالقدرة حيث شاء الله ولم يكن في ذلك الوقت لوح ولا قلم ولا جنّة ولا نار ولا ملك ولا سماء ولا أرض ولا شمس ولا قمر ولا جني ولا إنسي، فلما أراد الله أن يخلق الخلق قسّم ذلك النور أربعة أجزاء فخلق من الجزء الأول القلم، ومن الثاني اللوح، ومن الثالث العرش، ثم قسم الجزء الرابع أربعة أجزاء فخلق من الجزء الأول حملة العرش، ومن الثاني الكرسي، ومن الثالث باقي الملائكة، ثم قسّم الرابع أربعة أجزاء فخلق من الأول السموات، ومن الثاني الأرضين، ومن الثالث الجنّة والنار، ثم قسم الرابع أربعة أجزاء فخلق من الأول نور أبصار المؤمنين، ومن الثاني نور قلوبهم وهي المعرفة بالله، ومن الثالث نور أنسهم وهو التوحيد لا إله إلا الله محمّد رسول الله”
“O Prophet of Allah (sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)! My parents be sacrificed upon you, what did the Almighty Allah first create?” The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) replied: “Allah first created my Noor (Light) of His Noor. This Noor traveled about according to the Will of Allah. At that time, there was no Heaven, Hell, Lawh (Divine Tablet), Pen, Earth, Skies, Sun, Moon, Jinn or Human Beings. When He decided to create, He divided that Noor into four parts. From one part He created the Pen, from the second, the Lawh and from the third, he made the Arsh (Throne). He divided the fourth part into a further four parts. From one, He created those Angels who carry the Arsh, from the second, the Kursi (Divine Chair) and from the third, He created the Angels. He again divided the remaining parts into a further four parts. From one, He created the skies. The second was used in creating the planets. From the third, Heaven and Earth were created. Once again, He divided the fourth part into a further four parts. From one part He created the power with which the believers see. From the second, He created in the hearts of the Believers the Noor of Marifat. From the third, He created Noor in the tongues of the Believers, so that they can read the Kalima of Tauheed”.

Abu Lahab was an uncle to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam). The event, which Imaam Qastalaani has referred to, is this. When a maid of Abu Lahab (Abdul ‘Uzza) named Thuwaibah informed him of a son being born to his brother Abdul Laah (may ALLAH be pleased with him), he (Abu Lahab) was so delighted at herring this that he pointed his finger to her in a manner which signified her emancipation for carrying the good news to him But when the holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) declared his Prophet hood, he (Abu Lahab) did not accept him as a Prophet but became a most severe enemy to him and remained so all his life. In condemnation of him a whole Soorah of the Holy Qur’aan descended.

لَمَّا مَاتَ أَبُو لَهَب رَأَيْته فِي مَنَامِي بَعْد حَوْل فِي شَرّ حَال فَقَالَ : مَا لَقِيت بَعْدكُمْ رَاحَة ، إِلَّا أَنَّ الْعَذَاب يُخَفَّف عَنِّي كُلّ يَوْم اِثْنَيْنِ ، قَالَ : وَذَلِكَ أَنَّ النَّبِيّ صَلَّى اللَّه عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وُلِدَ يَوْم الِاثْنَيْنِ ، وَكَانَتْ ثُوَيْبَة بَشَّرَتْ أَبَا لَهَب بِمَوْلِدِهِ فَأَعْتَقَهَا
After his death, people of Abu Lahab’s household saw him in a dream, and asked him how he had fared. To this, Abu Lahab said that after departing from them he did not meet with any good but was being given water every Monday from the finger with which he had indicated the emancipation of Thuwaibah, and this water lessened his torment.

Allama Muhammad Bin Alawai Malki have stated in his work, Houl al-IHtifal Bi Zikri Mawlid an-Nabawi Ash-Sharif that Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam after announcing his prophet hood he did his Aqeeqa, not only this he also plunked on his mim’ber shareef and recited his Shajra, memorized the birth of Hadrat Adam and Status of Hadrat Ibrahim, Hadrat Esa, Hadrat Moosa Alaihimus Salam. He ordered few of his companions to recite his greatness; Many of Companions offered poems in the greatness of Syyeduna Rasoolullah, He was delighted hearing this and prayed for his companions.

O Rabi’ al-Awwal! Your joys surpass thousands of ‘Eids
All in the universe are rejoicing, except Shaytan!!

    THE PROPHET’S GREAT SACRIFICE

    The Islamic revolution is unique in another respect in that its sponsor, in spite of its accomplishment
    with innumerable sacrifices, did not take any compensation or reward for it. He sacrificed everything
    for the good of the humanity but did not take in return even as much as was rationally, legally and
    conventionally, permissible and just. Not the slightest stain of selfishness or avarice is found in this
    great triumph. Can one find any other example to equal that?
    From the economic point of view, the Prophet sacrificed his successful trade, a gave away all his
    earnings for the mission and when its success was assured, he distributed all his wealth with his own
    hands; he preferred a life of extremely modest and simple living for his own. He did not leave behind
    any money for his family nor acquire any property or establish any financial rights for his household
    during his lifetime nor did leave behind any hereditary office of succession. He did not recruit any
    guards or servants or acquire conveyance and did not like to have any furnishings in his home.
    From the political point of view, he did not claim any prerogative for himself and never used his
    authority against anyone beyond that prescribed by God. He did not issue any arbitrary law to exalt his
    political position. Although a serious state of emergency persisted in Medina, and he had to face ever
    increasing intrigues and conspiracies of the Jews and hypocrites, he never interned anyone or imposed
    any restrictions of issued any conscience-killing orders, or established any emergency courts or ordered
    flogging. On the other hand, he gave perfect liberty for criticism, advice and difference of
    opinion. He also allowed people to reject his personal suggestions. These rights and privileges were
    not merely on paper but were actually practiced. Occasionally, the Prophet discarded his own valuable
    opinion and accepted others point of view.
    If he wanted to give some concession to someone he obtained permission from his companions. For
    instance, once when Hazrat Abul Aas came as a prisoner and Hazrat Zainab sent a necklace as his
    ransom, which was gift from Hazrat Khadija (the Prophet’s first consort), the Prophet appealed at a
    public meeting for the return of that necklace. Similarly, when the property of Abul Aas came as a
    booty he returned it but only after taking permission from the public. Once, a deputation arrived at
    Jaarana for the release of prisoners of the Battle of Hunain appealing to the Prophet in the name of his
    foster mother. The prisoners had already been distributed and when the Prophet released prisoners
    attached to the Quraish on his own initiative, he appealed for others at a public meeting and when the
    people, found that the Prophet had released prisoners allotted to his relatives, all of them released
    those given to them. In such cases the Prophet never used any pressure.
    From the social point of view, the Prophet preferred equal status for himself and never claimed any
    preferential treatment, nor did he adopt any higher standard in the matter of food or dress, nor did he
    like a distinctive place at public gatherings. He would not see people standing before him as a mark of
    respect or encourage others to address him with the title of master or chief. On the battlefield or
    while travelling, digging the ditch or building mosques, he worked with his companions in carrying
    building material, breaking stones and collecting wood with his own hands. He allowed the people to
    make a stern demand from him for the recovery of a loan and he offered himself to the public for
    taking revenge if he had done any wrong to anyone.
    It was this lofty ideal of the redeemer of the humanity which was entrusted to us, and it was to
    popularize this message that we were raised to the high position of “witnesses over men” and the
    “balanced community”. This slogan of truth was given to us as a trust so that as successors of the
    Prophet we play the role of redeemer of the humanity and whenever mankind is in difficulties and the
    society is involved in a crisis, we rush to their rescue. But we failed to keep aloft this banner of truth,
    rather we destroyed it with our own hands. The result was that when the modern age took a turn
    towards materialism, we were unable to check it. It is the bitter fruit of our failure that the entire
    human life is now facing a crisis, world leadership is in ungodly hands, conflicting materialistic
    ideologies clashing with one another are disturbing the peace of mind, and we ourselves have become their slaves. No amount of misfortunes instils in us a sense of shame, and neither the disorders in
    Islamic society nor the crisis in human ranks infuse in us a sense of duty.
    Behind the deceptive curtains of the modern materialistic civilization, let us survey the conditions of
    the humanity and a distressing spectacle will be before our eyes. The mankind is caught in the
    clutches of strange values and everywhere there is a struggle for wealth and power. The light of moral
    consciousness in man has extinguished, crimes are increasing with the advance of civilization and as
    psychological perplexities prevail, mental peace is altogether gone. Confusion prevails in the human
    mind and character. No sector of human life is uncontaminated. The spirit of truth has gone out of
    philosophy and science and there is no sincerity in beliefs and ideas. Spiritual values have declined
    while the law has become devoid of the spirit of justice, and self-seeking mentally has replaced the
    deep urge for service in politics. In the social sphere, groups of oppressors and the oppressed have
    emerged. Sex dominates the fine arts and contradictions are found in every part of social life. Rival
    forces are at war and the whole history is turned into a dreaful drama. Learning has advanced but its
    follies continue to pester us. Fountains of knowledge are there but these very fountains foster
    misconception which enslave humanity. Piles of wealth lie scattered all over but a vast majority still
    lives in abject poverty, penury and want. Thousands of organizations, political groups, ideological
    parties and contradicted relationships exist but there is no brotherly attachment between man and
    man. There is the talk of development of rational, political, moral and social consciousness, but the
    most hateful weapons of oppression and violence are still being used against humanity. History is a
    vast battleground in which there are horrifying clashes between imperialism and freedom, Communism
    and capitalism, democracy and dictatorship, individualism and collectivism, and the Orient and the
    Occident.
    This is the world in which we live. We are facing the challenge of global crisis. Modern materialistic
    civilization or the man fostered by it is incapable of taking up the challenge. There is no new
    philosophy which can provide even a momentary relief. Nowhere can salvation be found. In this
    perplexing period when darkness is enveloping man from all sides there is only one light which can be
    seen, far off, fourteen hundred years away. This is the light of the greatest benefactor of the
    humanity, light of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), which we claiming to be the followers of Muhammad
    (PBUH), have eclipsed by our confused thinking and unprincipled conduct.

    “Manf-e-at ek hai is qaum ki nuqsaan bhi ek
    ek hi sab ka nabi deen bhi iman bhi ek
    harame paak bhi Allah bhi Quran bhi ek
    kuchh bari baat thi hote jo Musalman bhi ek”

    “There is one common gain and one common loss for all Muslims. (Remember the Prophet’s hadith that all Muslims are like a body.) One Prophet (PBUH) for all and one Iman for all. One Ka’aba, one Allah and one Qur’an for all. How great it would be if Muslims also were one!”

    Qur’an says:

    “O mankind! There has come to you a guidance from your Lord and a cure for the disease in your hearts.” (10:57)

    Thus according to Qur’an and Iqbal, the disease of all our problems lies in our hearts and therefore, the cure should also begin there. Iqbal says:

    “Zaban se kah bhi diya la ilaha illah to kya hasil
    Dil-o-nigah Musalman naheen to kuchh bhi naheen”

    “What can you accomplish by saying la ilaha with your tongue? If your heart is not a Muslim, then it is nothing.”

    That is, the Iman should enter the depths of the heart. Simply saying that I believe is not enough, according to the Quran (49:14).

    The Qur’an says:

    “Among human beings are those who say ‘We believe in Allah and the Last day;’ but they are not among the Momins.” (2:8)

    Those born in Muslim families cannot claim to be Momins (just like the bedouoins of Arabia) unless Iman has entered their hearts.

    “The bedouins say, ‘We believe,’ (O Rasool) Say to them that you don’t believe, but you have accepted to surrender (to Islam) and Iman has not yet entered the depths of your hearts.” (49:14)

    Also, Iman is not blind faith. The Qur’an clearly says that Iman becomes strong only with knowledge,

    “And that those on whom knowledge has been bestowed may know that (Qur’an) is the Truth from your Lord, so that they may believe in it and their hearts may be made humbly (open) to it.” (22:54)

    Therefore, the heart must be kept humble and open, so that Iman acquired by the mind (knowledge) may enter the heart. Iman cannot enter those whose hearts have disease and those who have sealed and hardened their hearts (22:53).

    Qur’an says the Momins have dignity and power over others:

    “If you are Momins, then you will have dominance and power.” (3:139)

    And unbelievers will never be able to subdue and dominate Momins:

    “And never will We grant to the unbelievers victory and domination over Momins.” (4:141)

    Obviously, if we as Muslims compare ourselves with these very clear verses of Qur’an, then we have to come to only one conclusion that we are not among the Momins which the Qur’an talks about. Majority of our hearts are not open and humble. In fact, Qur’an tells us that instead of making the heart open and humble, there are some who let their emotions and ego control them. It says:

    “Have you seen the one who has taken his own emotions as his god.” (25:43)

    Iqbal says regarding this type of person:

    “Zabaan se gar kiya tauheed ka da’wa to kya hasil
    banaya hay bute pindaar ko apna khuda tu ne”

    “What is the benefit if you claim with your tongue in oneness of God? You have made your emotion an idol and taken it as your god.”

    How many of us (besides practicing the five pillars) are willing to go deep down in our hearts and honestly admit that we follow our emotions more often than we follow Allah (i.e. Book of Allah)? Allah demands total and complete surrender of our wills:

    “O you who believe! Enter in Islam completely.” (2:208)

    Therefore, the problems which we Muslims are facing today are the outward symptoms of the root cause, i.e., the internal friction in our hearts between obedience to Allah and obedience to our own emotions and egos. And it is this internal conflict that is referred to as the disease of the heart by the Qur’an. Iqbal too espouses this same theme of the Qur’an when he says:

    “Batil du-ee pasand hay haq la sharik hay
    shirkat miyan-e haq-o-batil na kar qubool”

    “Batil (as opposed to Haq; the Truth) likes to compromise but Haq is uncompromising. Do not accept the middle ground between Haq and Batil.”

    Therefore, as long as we Muslims keep compromising the TRUTH contained in the Quran, there is no hope for a cure of our collective mental, psychological, and emotional ills. We do not know how many psychological, emotional, and mental forms of idols we carry all the time in our hearts and minds. Qur’an demands us to cleanse and purify our hearts from all kinds of Ilah. These subtle forms of shirk are addictive and like a slow poison have a deadening effect on our hearts and minds. Iqbal in his unique God given style says:

    “Dile murda dil naheen hay ise zida kar dobara
    ki yahee hay ummaton ke marge kuhan ka chara”

    “The deadened heart is not a heart. Make it alive again. This is the only way to cure the age old diseases of nations.”

    How to revive and resuscitate the dead heart; Iqbal says it is only possible through Qur’an:

    “Gar tu mi khahi Musalman zeestan – neest mumkin juz ba Quran zeestan”

    “If you wish to live the life a Muslim, then it is not possible except by the Quran.”

    ‘Aisha (R) said: “The Prophet (PBUH) was a walking Quran.” Thus the Sunnah is to live by the Quran and not just read it for earning reward for the hereafter.

    Iqbal says about our Sahaba (R):

    “Wo mu’azziz they zamane mein Musalman hokar
    aur tum khwar huey tarike Quran hokar”

    “They had dignity and power in the world because of Islam. And you are suffering humiliation and defeat because you have left the Qur’an.”

    Quran says that our Prophet (PBUH) will complain to Allah:

    “And the Prophet (PBUH) will say: “O my Lord! Truly my people took the Quran for just foolish nonsense (i.e., they left the message of the Quran).” (25:30)

    But Iqbal also emphasizes that there are plenty of roadblocks in the path of the Quran. No less is the roadblock presented by some religious scholars in the name of Islam. Iqbal says:

    “Khud badalte naheen Quran ko badal dete hain
    huwey kis darja faqeehane haram be taufiq”

    “These people don’t change themselves but they change the Qur’an (by their interpretations). How unfortunate are these custodians of haram (Islam).”

    He further says:

    “Ahkam tere haq hain magar apne mufassir
    taaweel se Quran ko bana sakte hain Pazhand”

    “O Allah! Your guidance is no doubt The Truth. But our interpreters can turn Qur’an into Pazhand by their interpretations.”

    [Pazhand is the book compiled by the followers of Zoroaster which according to them is the interpretation of Avesta, the book of Zoroaster in which his followers inserted their own thoughts.]

    And finally, Muslims should always keep in front of them the following verse, which describes the law for change:

    “It is a fact that Allah does not change the condition of a people unless they bring about change in their own selves.” (13:11)

    Iqbal echoes exactly the same message of the Quran in his own God given style when he says:

    “Khuda ne aaj tak us qaum ki haalat naheen badlee
    na ho jisko khyal aap apni haalat ke badalne ka”

    Let us conclude with the folowing message of Iqbal:

    Let us pray to Allah to unite our hearts in the path of Islam. It is Allah’s promise that if we do that, then we will regain our dignity, power, and glory (24:55). And Allah does not break His promise (2:80).

    Tujh se aur jannat se kya matlab Wahabi (ahle hadees, tableeghi, deoband & khadiyani) dooor ho…
    Hum rasoolallah k jannat rasoolallah ki…!

    Jo log eid milad un nabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam ko eid maan ne se aitraz karte hai wo log shayad ye nahi jaante k hadees sharif me Juma ko eid ka din kaha gaya hai.
