  • Another Hadiths Pandora box, well this time love magic.

    I love this hate and love relationship contradicting each other in Hadits and Quran.

  • Good on you Ghulam, your article makes me to have mercy on everyone. Especially when we realize the depth of Allah’s mercy and our holy Prophet as mercy personified.

    I don’t want to see Abu bucker al Baghdadi is hanged after ICC or Nuremburg trial. I want him to fall in love with a Yazidis girl, accept her as his only wife and escort her to his car and open the door and make her sit comfortably; take her to a beauty parlour and do some facial and then to a restaurant for a sumptuous lunch and love her until his death.

    I agree with you that we should readily show, in return, our mercy towards our fellow human beings; mercy towards Sunnis, Shias, Sufis, Hindus, Atheists and especially mercy towards gays, blasphemers, apostates, prostitutes etc  The second great prophet of Islam also said to the well-educated Pharisees “ Go and learn what this means ‘I desire mercy not sacrifice’. For I have not come to call the righteous but the sinners”

  • Logical answer (6, 7, 8, and 9) to the misconception of Tarek Fateh on the question “Did Islam spread by sword in India?”

    Answer 6:

    The credit of the spread of Islam in India goes to the two holy companions namely Hazrat Tamim Daari, Hazrat Maalik bin Deenar (Radi Allahu anhu). These two companions entered India much before the Muslim rulers and army. Which sword these two companions bring to India?

    Answer 7:

    The credit of the spread of Islam in India widely goes to the Sufi saints like Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz, Hazrat Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Hazrat Ameer Khusru, Haji Ali shah baba, and Hazrat Sabir Kalyari and so on. Which sword did these Sufi saints bring to India?

    Answer 8:

    Hazrat Khawaj Ghareeb Nawaz rahimahullah had settled in Ajmer, India much before the conquest of Muhammad Gauri. Which sword did he take?

    Answer 9:

    The shrine of Imam Mashhad rahimahullah located in Samana of the district Patiala. How was this built in the ninth century, whereas the Muslim army entered in India in late 12th century? Which sword did Imam Mashhad bring?

    All this widely accepted and well-reasoned fact proves that Islam did not spread in India by sword.

  • Logical answer (3, 4, and 5) to the misconception of Tarek Fateh on the question “Did Islam spread by sword?”

    Muslims ruled India for about 800 years. The rulers were in power and if they wanted, they could convert each and every non-Muslim living in India to Islam.  But we see today non-Muslims are in overwhelming majority.

    Answer 4.

    Indonesia is the biggest Muslim majority country today. The question is: “Which Muslim army went to Indonesia and Malaysia?   

    Answer 5.

    Islam has spread in the East Coast of Africa. Again the question is: “Which Muslim took the sword to spread Islam here?”

    By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi غلام غوث الصديقي - 3/2/2017 10:16:27 PM

  • Logical answer (2) to the misconception of Tarek Fateh on the question “Did Islam spread by sword?”

    It is recorded in the history that the Muslims ruled Arabia for 1400 years. The French ruled for a few years and the British ruled for a few years. Despite the rule of Muslims for 1400 years, there are still 14 million Arabs who are Coptic Christians. It should be noted that when the Coptics were under the rule of the Roman Empire, they suffered severe persecution and death for their faith and beliefs in Jesus Christ, while refusing to worship emperors. But when the Arab conquest took place and overthrew the Roman’s rule in Egypt, it relieved the Coptic Church from persecution.

    If Muslims had used the sword, there would not have been a single Arab who would have remained a Christian”.

  • Logical answer (1) to the misconception of Tarek Fateh on the question “Did Islam spread by sword?”


    Muslims ruled Spain for approximately 800 years. These Muslims never used the sword to force the people to convert to Islam. It is recorded in the history that Christian Crusaders later came to Spain and wiped out these Muslims. Consequently, not a single Muslim was there in Spain who could openly give the adhan [the call for prayers]
    By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi غلام غوث الصديقي - 3/2/2017 9:29:49 PM

  • The quran translators in English often change the meaning or add some new meanings to it by adding some implied meaning in square brackets. Thus translation will become "in the heaven" to "above the heaven" to"[authority] in the heaven". This proves that Quran is not a clear message and unambiguous.

    Any way God is asking muslims below questions:-

    Dear muslims, who asked you to call me by name Allah? I am beyond your senses and imagination and yet you say I spoke to moses and many so called prophets and angels? Who said I created jannah, angels, jinn, adam and satan? it is your imagination!! I am beyond space and time and you say I am in jannah or I am sitting in a throne over jannah? You wrote in quran 67:16 to 67:17. Thus you define me in your own way but if non muslims calls me by different names, imagine forms of me and try to worship me in their ways you attack them!! who gave you the right to ridicule other religions and harm others?Lastly I don't condemn anyone for eternal damnation for their finite crimes they do. Do not threaten others with hell fire on my behalf.

  • @Mohsin Jaffer 
    You have presented a two year old article that was originally posted on World Shia Forum.

  • We condemn Tarek Fatah’s stereotyping and incitement to murder of Shiite Muslims – by Mohsin Jaffer
    Takfiri Tarek blames Sunnis for Hazrat Ali’s murder and Shia genocide – by Irfan Qadri
    How would you describe someone distributing the antisemitic hoax ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ (purporting to describe a Jewish plan for global domination) in Nazi Germany when Hitler and his security forces were slaughtering six million European Jews (The Holocaust). Of course, that would tantamount to enabling further violence against innocent Jews.
    Well, that is exactly what Tarek Fatah did only two days ago when he distributed a highly inflammatory video in which a few Shia youths were shown insulting the Prophet Muhammad’s wife Ayesha.
    It is shocking to see Tarek Fatah using his Twitter and facebook page to promote the video clip (screenshot attached) that can only promote greater hatred against Shiite Muslims, and was duly reprimanded by both Sunni and Shia Muslims.
    Well, that is exactly what Tarek Fatah did only two days ago when he distributed a highly inflammatory video in which a few Shia youths were shown insulting the Prophet Muhammad’s wife Ayesha.
    It is shocking to see Tarek Fatah using his Twitter and facebook page to promote the video clip (screenshot attached) that can only promote greater hatred against Shiite Muslims, and was duly reprimanded by both Sunni and Shia Muslims.
    I do not want to reproduce that atrocious clip. Needless to say, it does not represent Shia practice in the mainstream. I also note that the clip was produced and distributed by an organization (MEMRI – the Middle East Media Research Institute, with headquarters located in Washington, DC) which claims ‘to inform the debate over U.S. policy in the Middle East’ and for ‘timely translations of Arabic, Persian, Urdu-Pashtu, and Turkish media, as well as original analysis of political, ideological, intellectual, social, cultural, and religious trends in the Middle East’. I think MEMRI directors really need to set their priorities right instead of enabling further Shia genocide in Pakistan and other countries by distributing misleading and provocative videos.
    Returning to Tarek Fatah, given his active interest in Pakistan, Middle East and the history of Islam, how could he remain oblivious to the extremely adverse implications of the video for Shiites, particularly for Shiites of Pakistan, who already face a slow-motion genocide. At least 19000 Shias have been killed in Pakistan by Saudi-sponsored Deobandi-Wahhabi militants because the killers consider Shiites as a deviant sect outside the pale of Islam; a Jewish (Sabai) conspiracy against Muslims. Fatah claims to be a friend of Jews while at the same time enabling hatred and massacre of ‘Jewish agents’ Shiites. See the irony?
    Refer to this clip of Al Qaeda/Lashkar-e-Jhangvi leader Malik Ishaq spreading hatred against Shia Muslims in Kabirwala, Pakistan (19 June 2012):
    1 jabl e istiqamat malik m ishaq sab in kabeir wala 19 jun 2012
    Is Fatah any different from LeJ’s Malik Ishaq?
    Both are referring to isolated incidents that relate to criticism of certain historical personalities (by fringe elements) to incite hatred against all Shias without any distinction. Malik Ishaq is just more up front in his incitement. Usually this incitment leads to mass murder, especially in Pakistan. Pakistani expats, both of Shia and Sunni sect must take serious note of this incitment by Tarek Fatah.
    As recent massacre of 22 Shia and 3 Sunni Muslims at Babusar pass by LeJ-Taliban extremists reveals, this sort of incitment is used to mass murder Shia Muslims and those Sunni Muslims who stood to protect their Shia brothers.
    Under the prevailing circumstances, what made Fatah do something so reckless. Does he not realize the consequences of his act?
    Here’s a response to such provocations by the LeJ-Al Qaeda leader Masroor Nawaz Jhangvi (son of Sipah-e-Sahaba founder (killed) Haq Nawaz Jhangvi|) who nakedly abuses all Shias by making them responsible for attacks on Ayesha:
    By promoting incitement, Fatah shares indirect responsibility for the deaths of Shias who are daily killed by extremists – especially in Pakistan.
    Overseas Pakistanis must take notice of this incitement and approach the law enforcement authorities, media and human rights organization and ask them to explore legal action against Fatah and expose his hate agenda against Shia Muslims.
    They should write letters to TV channels, newspapers, community and government organizations to bar Fatah from presenting his selective discourse on human rights and his camouflaged hatred of Shias.
    We recall that when pro-democracy activists were being brutally crushed by Saudi and Pakistani mercenaries in Bahrain, Fatah showed his true sectarian colours. For him, the entire issue was not the brutal suppression and killing of pro-democracy activists by the Khalifa regime – most of the victims being the indegenious Shias who have third class status in their own land. For Fatah, the violence in Bahrain was only about Shias killing Pakistani-Army drafted Baloch mercenaries. Using abusive methods as diversionary tactics, Fatah tried his best to distort the discourse on the pro-democracy struggle in Bahrain.
    One or two selective instances of sporadic mob violence were misused by Fatah to make such spurious arguements. The news and facts by diverse media outlets, Amnesty International, Nickolas Kristof, Robert Fisk were conviniently ignored. Any attempt to engage with him on this resulted in being abused as Iranian Agents, Baloch killers, Arab-want-to-be and Anti-Jewish.
    Sectarianism and racism: The dishonest narratives on Bahrain – by Hasnain Magsi
    As for the video clip being used by Fatah, I would request Shia organizations in Europe, Canada, Australia, US and especially UK to investigate whether this distasteful and condemnable event was even staged by Shias. Such tiny events may have been staged to facilitate the ongoing Shia Genocide in Pakistan and also persecution and killing of Shias including and not limited to Indonesia, Malaysia, Bahrain, Iraq, Qatar, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Morocco and Turkey. These are all areas where Shias are being killed and targeted. If this video is staged to assist in incitment against Shias worldwide, legal recourse for hate crimes and slander may be explored against Tarek Fatah. If this is an isolated incident, it must be condemned by Shia Organizations worldwide as well as exploring incitment to murder charges against Fatah.
    Shia Muslims have different views about historical incidents. This is common in all religions and social movements and Fatah should know.
    The Prophet Muhammad’s wife Ayesha is immensely respected by Sunni and Salafi Muslims while Shiite views about her are varied because of her opposition to and battles with the fourth Muslim Caliph Ali. There are clear instructions by Shiite clerics that Ayesha and other holy figures of Sunni Islam may be respectfully criticized based on historical evidence, however, insulting or abusing Ayesha and others is declared haram (impermissible) by Shia religious scholars.
    In his own book, Fatah talks precisely about historical differences between Sunnis and Shias and why Muslims must be open to diverse opinions and uphold the values of free speech in accepting criticism of their respective beliefs. Some of his historical accounts can even be viewed as sanitized, selective and apologetic from the Shia perspective. Still his work on topics such as moderation in religious practice, separation of Church and State and criticism of regressive Hudood practices are both valid and constructive.
    What is problematic from his media output in general and the promotion of this clip in particular is his insensitive and simplistic slanders on Shia Muslims and presenting the extremists amongst Shias as on par as Salafi-Deobandi extremists. Such views are naive at best and sectarian at worst. Perhaps he was influenced to spread these kind of false binaries during the time he lived in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. For many Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, Saudi Arabia funds Salafism that is intolerant of both sects and their cultural and spiritual practices.
    It’s therefore no surprise that in a subsequent tweet, Fatah rationalized Shia genocide by blaming it on Shiiites practice of insulting holy personalities of Sunni Islam. How similar to Abu Musab Zarqawi, Malik Ishaq and Ahmed Ludhianvi!
    It does not matter what Fatah’s religious background is or whether he comes from a Sunni, Shia or Salafi background. That is his personal business. The problem is with how Fatah (mis)uses his media presence to defame and incite murderous hatred against Shia Muslims. In this instance, his instrument is a clip where an unknown person with clearly malicious intent is provoking 6-7 small children to criticize one of the wives of the Holy Prophet nearly fourteen hundreds years after her death. This practice does not reflect mainstream Shia opinion and could very well be a fake event staged to incite Shia killings in places like Pakistan.
    For someone who talks of everything under the sun and especially on wide ranging Muslim issues, Fatah cannot be oblivious to the implications of this incitement. The practice of being specifically critical of some caliphs and some of the wives of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is a fringe practice. Similarly the practice of cursing and abusing the Holy Prophet’s family and Shia and Sufi icon Imam Ali ibne Abu Talib is a fringe historical practice. This practice was instituted by Imam Ali’s political rival Caliph Muawiya ibne Abu Sufyan and ended with the Omayyad era. Moderate Muslims from both Shia and Sunnis generally quote the non-specific Quranic verse “May God’s blessings be removed from the nation of oppressors” to register their protest against acts of injustice committed by both Muslims and non-Muslims.
    The Shia fringe that engages in this type of specific criticism – essentially invoking Lanaa i.e. revoking God’s blessings from certain acquaintances of the Holy Prophet and some of his latter wives – has been discouraged by the mainstream Ithna Ashari (Twelver Shias). Similarly the extremist Salafi and Deobandi sect that equates such criticism as blasphemy and punishable by death and pogrom represents a minority within the Deobandi and Salafi sects. However, due to the patronage of rich oil countries in the Gulf, this tiny fringe has become very powerful all over the world. Since the military dictatorship of General Zia in Pakistan, Salafi and Deobandi militias often kill Shias as collective punishment due to inflated and widely circulated actions of a fringe that engages in criticism. It is important to provide the context of this issue – something that would be well known to someone with the scholarship and media presence like Tarek Fatah.
    This is all the more reason that the insensitive act by Fatah casts serious doubts on his otherwise commendable efforts for inter-faith harmony. We appreciate his work when he holds up the mirror to Muslims of all sects and asks them to confront their intolerance against other faiths and discard anti-Semetic conspiracy theories.
    Pity then that when it comes to Shias who are being targetted by extremists of the muslim faith, Fatah is no different than a Saudi-funded Salafist Mullah!
    Update: Apparently Tarek Fatah apologized in the comments section but the very next day attacked the very forum (Word Shia Forum) by stereotyping it as an Iranian blog. It’s a sorry state of affairs.
    By Mohsin Jaffer - 3/1/2017 2:44:44 AM

  • Mr Jawed: I think you are not a Muslim – is my first opinion made through your comment comprising of crazy questions, otherwise you would not have asked such silly questions.
     Q.1 Have you ever seen God or communicated to God ? Did God ever spoke to you even in dreams?
     Ans: Firstly, I want to tell you, masha Allah I try to communicate to Allah five times a day of which you are bereft of. You must have been knowing if you are a Muslim, “As-Salat merajul-momenin” as during the course of prayer, Allah Kareem removes all the curtains and barriers from between Him and the devotees, the devotee is just before the Allah almighty. You can converse and communicate your feelings to Him as per your devotion and dedication towards Allah. If you are able to pray with “Khushu and “khuzu” and please your Creator, you can achieve His mercy and forgiveness.
     Q.2 Did Allah showed you any signs or miracles?
     Ans: Yes, of course, our prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) himself and his hyat-e-mubarak itself is an undeniable miracle of Allah kareem.
     Islam considers the Quran to be a holy book, the word of Allah, and a miracle.[citation needed] The text itself is believed to be a miracle on the grounds that the Arabic text does not conform to the standard poetry and prose categories commonly expressed by all forms of written and spoken languages and therefore falls outside the realm of limited human possibility and must be divinely inspired.
     Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see. Then, He Istawa (rose above) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty). He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round)! Each running (its course) for a term appointed. He regulates all affairs, explaining the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that you may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord. Quran, Surah Ar-Raad (Verse 2)
     We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them for a (mere) play.
    Quran, Surah Al-Anbiya (Verse 16)
     See you not that Allah has subjected to you (mankind) all that is on the earth, and the ships that sail through the sea by His Command? He withholds the heaven from falling on the earth except by His Leave. Verily, Allah is, for mankind, full of Kindness, Most Merciful.
    Quran, Surah Al-Hajj (Verse 65)
    .3 You are just blindly believing in what Mohammed told in Quran and absolutely no idea how God works.
    Ans: Masha Allah I am not blind, the Allah Kareem has bestowed senses to realise the Truth, understanding to judge various false practices, knowledge to enrich myself upom me and my family.
    Q.4 Did Allah answered to any of your prayers?
    Ans: Yes, He has answered my requests and demands by giving me Eiman, Kalma-e-Taiyyabah, Islamic wisdom of virtue and vices, vision, health, education, children, and feeding us with “Halal Rizq” and has guided me to path of saleheen.
    Q.5  What makes you think you are lesser than Mohammed and does not deserve to receive any sign, word, vision from God even in a dream?
    Ans:  Your this question is the sign of your rebellion and apostacy. A crazy person like you only can think of being equal to the prophets (pbuth), to be deserving of getting revelations and prophethood.
    May Allah Kareem help you with His mercy and guidance, Aameen!'

    Who Are Those Who Will Believe And Those Who Will Not?


    By Naseer Ahmed - 3/1/2017 1:46:46 AM

  • Mr Javed,

    Are you now clear that God did send multiple contemporaneous prophets?

    Why does God not reveal anything to you or just anyone? The answer is in the Quran. Read it?

    The prophet was accused of hallucinations and much worse in his own time. There is nothing original about anything you say. 

    Right now, it looks very much that you are the one who blindly disbelieves without knowing why you disbelieve either.

  • "About what one cannot speak, one must remain silent"

    so the Holy Qur'an should remain silent.

    By hats off! - 2/28/2017 6:07:56 AM

  • Mr. Jawed: Your wisdom, understanding, logic and reason seem to be of quite low standard. Due to that deficiency, you are unable to understand that even lacs of prophets (pbuth) would be possible at a time and at different places in the world. You are questioning Allah Kareem for not communicating to numerous people in a group as you do on Whatsapp now. Quran Kareem was revealed to our prophet Hazrat Mohammad (pbuh) fifteen hundred years ago and that is His source of communication to His creation until the Last Day i.e. Qayamat.
    By Raihan Nezami - 2/28/2017 2:15:40 AM

  • About what one cannot speak, one must remain silent.
    Moses and Aaron were brothers and both were prophets sent together on the same mission. 
    Abraham and Lut were also contemporaneous prophets.
    Surah Yasin speaks of 3 prophets supporting each other.
    (36:13) Set forth to them, by way of a parable, the (story of) the Companions of the City. Behold!, there came messengers to it.
    (14) When We (first) sent to them two messengers, they rejected them: But We strengthened them with a third: they said, "Truly, we have been sent on a mission to you."
    (15) The (people) said: "Ye are only men like ourselves; and (Allah) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie."
    (16) They said: "Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you:
    (17) "And our duty is only to proclaim the clear Message."

    If there were upto three prophets working together in the same region, there may have been scores of contemporaneous prophets spread across the world. 
    Nothing much has changed and no new arguments have been put forth by those who disbelieve. Every argument of the disbeliever is covered in the Quran. So people who have questions can find answers to their questions if they read the Quran.

    By Naseer Ahmed - 2/28/2017 12:46:42 AM

  • The so called prophets talking to God, communicating with God are just hallucinations. No prophets have seen God or communicated to God . What they did try was explaining an unknown concept of God to fellow believers. Also the purpose of religion was to teach people good behavior and morals and tell them that God would appreciate it. But these prophets themselves may not be perfect and might have even committed crimes. A hadith says that there are 1,24000 prophets . Humans appeared only 200,000 years ago. if there were these many prophets then every 2 years we would have seen prophets. At the same time there can be multiple prophets alive. I don't see a reason why God should reveal to only one person at a time.God can reveal to entire quraysh if God will not just to Mohammed Nabi

    if you can answer this question, i will be able to formulate a response to your disjointed comment.

  • Dear hats off!

    Mercy to others does not mean allowing others to push you down a deep abyss from the edge of a cliff. However merciful you may be you resist.

    The Prophet authorized actions against banu qurayzah for committing high treason by confining themselves in their strongholds leaving the Muslims of Medina alone to defend against a coordinated attack by Arab armies, the approach of which the Qur'an captures as follows:

    (As the Prophet’s followers watched over the horizon) the attackers came on them, waves upon waves. Their eyes dimmed and their hearts rose up to their throats and they conceived (weird) thoughts about God (33:10).  This was a moment of trial for the believers as they were shaken by a most violent shock (33:11).

    The hypocrites wished they were in the desert with the Bedouins, inquiring about the news of the believers (33:20).They said what God and the Prophet of God had promised was mere illusion and some of them sought the Prophet’s permission saying that their homes were exposed, though they were not exposed and they only wanted to flee (33:13).

     The army laid a siege on Medina threatening the survival of the Muslim community. As the Qur'an records, .

    Had the enemy broken the siege and entered (the city) from the sides and asked them (the hypocrites) to dissent and join a civil war, they would have readily done so (33:14), despite their oaths that they will not turn their backs (33:15). Thus, they broke the trust that is placed exclusively on humankind (3:72). Accordingly, God pronounced his curse upon the hypocrites, men and women and upon the Meccan pagans, men and women (33:73).

    Finally, God repulsed the pagans in their rage by a severe storm (33:25)and forces invisible (33:9),and spared the believers any combat (33:25). And God brought down from their strongholds those of the People of the Book (the Qurayzas) who backed them (the attackers) and He threw terror into their hearts. A group of them was killed and a group was taken as captive (33:26), and their land, their homes, and their possessions were seized (33:27).

    [The classical biography of the Prophet reports that some 800-900 Jews were slain one after another – single handedly by the Prophet, in a sword wielding feat. But the classical biography is based on the work of Ibn Ishaq, pieced together some 150 years after the Prophet’s death in the form of a story. Like all stories of that era, the Prophet’s story is based entirely on oral accounts (pious tales), is highly romanticized, speculative and embellished and its bits and pieces can be highly exaggerated, grossly inaccurate and patently legendary.

  • Hats Off, why don't you take your schoolboyish questions to some apostate site?

    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 2/24/2017 11:13:07 AM

  • why did not the mercy of the prophet extend to the banu qurayza?
    By hats off! - 2/24/2017 6:10:13 AM

  • Indee the Prophet is mercy personified but radical groups from among wahhabis are in a bid to remove what you Muslims think about your beloved prophet.  When Muslims started working against radical wahhabism in India. The Wahhabis cleverly trapped Indian Muslims and others into a debate of triple talaq. Wahhabis think triple talaq as one, while thre rest of muslims regard triple talaq as three ... Those who were once against wahhabism have now started following wahhabism in triple talaq. Not in this particualr issue but in many issues the people of secularism follow wahhabism. You go to fight for triple talaq issue, and wahhabis will be involved in efforts of ensuring the dreams of ruling the entire world and killing all those who are not in conformity with their wahhabism. See, Attack on Qalandar shrine, is another example .........
