The plight of Umma in the present scenario reflects the saying of Prophet Muhammed PBUM that the day will come when it will be attacked by the united opponents as the hungry men attack the dining table. Companions(R) asked, they will be in lesser numbers. The Prophet said “No”, they will be in large numbers but will be without influence and weight. He said it will be due to fear of death and love for the worldly desires. The community which fears death is the dead community. The community dares the evil survives. These were the words expressed by Moulana Muhammed Yousuf Islahi, Member Central Advisory Council, Jamaat e Islami Hind while addressing the huge gathering at Faraan College ground on Thursday the 16th February 2012.
Continuing his speech he said, this was the forethought of Prophet Muhammed (s) preached so that Umma tried to re-establish itself as the best Community in the world as and when it was suppressed by the evil forces.
He said that this Umma will survive the testing times till the last day (dooms day) as it has the Quran with it. It is Allah SWT promise that he has taken responsibility on to himself to protect Quran and the same lord will protect the Umma.
He said the whole universe is in the fingers of Allah SWT. And Allah SWT acts according to his whims and wishes however the devil forces try to destroy peace and calling people towards right path. Moulana said we do not have the ability to spread the word of Allah SWT, but it is Allah SWT`s will that has made it possible to spread his word through the very people who are opposing this message. The same he did in Prophets (S) period through the acts of Abu Jahal, Abu Lahab, Utba, Shoeba etc and same he is doing with the like of modern media in the hands of opponents of Islam. The opponents of Islam have introduced Islam to the humanity in wrong way and it is our duty to introduce it in right way. He said today Islam is the most discussed subject.
Quoting the example from the book of Moulan Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi, he said The Muslim Ummah should be upholder of Justice even if it goes against it as it was exhibited by the elderly Islamic scholar during the British period when he gave witness in the court that the disputed land belongs to the Hindus. With such acts by the Muslims it looks that they are being defeated but he said with such acts only the Islam Wins. Today every where Muslims are being defeated but with every defeat Islam is winning the hearts of the common people.
He expressed his anguish over the fact that we are not practicing Muslims. He called upon the people to make your homes Islamic. This is possible, he said by imparting Islamic education to women. Giving an example of Imam Shafai`s mother, he said she was not happy when her son returned with worldly bounties after completing his education on Hadees, she preached her son to donate whatever he brought. When she saw that her son has kept 10 dirham with him for dinner, she asked do you have faith in this money not in Allah DWT. He also quoted an example of Rabiya Basri.
He called upon the people to become obey the teachings of Prophet Muahmmed PBUH if you are lovers of him. He said we love our ancestors as they loved and practiced Prophet(s).
The program was started with the recitation of Holy Quran by Moulana Muhammed Siraj ul Hasan Jewargi. Jb Mohammed Yousuf Kanni delivered inaugural address. Br Mohammed Bilal, Member SIO from Basavakalyan and Moulan Mazharullah Qasmi Asst Zonal Organizer Hassa sang Naat to the delight of the audience.
