Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)
Allah is always with the believers. The Polytheists of Makkah had reached the cave where the Holy Prophetﷺ and Abu Bakr Siddique were present. The Polytheists, with open swords in hands were standing at the foot of the cave. If they had bent down a little to look below, they could see them present in the can but there was peace inside the cave. The words on their lips wereاِنَّ اللّٰہَ مَعَنَا . Surely, Allah is with us. The Polytheists grew blind and returned unsuccessful. There was a horrible scene in front and fierce army of Pharaoh behind but Hazrat Musa was saying اِنَّ مَعِیَ رَبِّی. Surely, my Lord is with me. Hence Allah honoured the link. Two enemies began to fight each other. The waves of the sea engulfed the Pharaoh and his army.
Today's Topic: Today, I intended to write on many topics. Applications for Hajj are invited. I intended to recall the memories of obligation of Hajj and the Holy Sanctuaries. Maybe Muslims are inclined to it. People own useless plots, jewllery and bank balance. The obligation of Hajj becomes delightful if the plots and jewllery are sold for this sake and bank balance is balanced. Plots and jewellery trouble man whereas Hajj of Allah's House is very useful and will remain useful.
The Muslim men and Muslim women who have not yet performed Hajj should pray for it, offer sacrifice and acquire this bounty. The time when I used to deliver speeches on Hajj, I would say to people. "Sell everything to perform Hajj, Allah will give you everything back. Do not cause harm to yourselves by being stingy. If you are deprived of Hajj by saving wealth for your children, you wrong yourselves and your children. Maybe your children spend all this wealth in merry-making for a few nights. If you sell your plots and property to perform Hajj and pray for your children there, you will get back your property, and your children will also supplicate for you." A few people were going to perform Umrah. They ordered me to give them a piece of advice. I said a few points before them with the capacity granted by Allah. One point was, "One supplication in the Holy Ka'bah is equal to 100,000 supplications in general. Spend the time in Haram praying for your children, the time which you want to waste in the bazaars to buy gifts for them. Gifts are found everywhere but supplication in Haram is not gained anywhere else." For example, you want to bless your children with the Holy Quran if you supplicate thus sitting there for one time, it will be equal to 100,000. I shall write a column on the eve of Hajj if Allah wills. If not, consider these words sufficient and submit applications steeped in Allah's love.
Another topic was Hazrat Nuh's piece of advice and supplications stated by him. When I wrote a few words about Hazrat Nuh in the last column, I intended to write other points also. But the situation in our country is worsening so much that even the holy saints are despaired and upset. So, I intend to write a few words on current affairs in the country. May Allah grant me with the oppennes of heart and capacity to write.
رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِیْ صَدْرِیْ وَیَسِّرْ لِیْ اَمْرِی
A Gift: Hazrat Muhammad said to Hazrat Ali یَا عَلِیُّ اَلَا اُعَلِّمُکَ کَلِمَاتِ الْفَرجْ O Ali! May I not tell you the words that better the situation! ’’الفرج‘‘ means expansion, removal of misery and worry, opening of blocked routes, solution to problems and lightening of burden on the heart. Then heﷺ told him these words: لا اِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللّٰہُ الْعَلِیُّ الْعَظِیْمُ، سُبْحَانَ اللّٰہِ رَبِّ السَّمٰوٰتِ السَّبْعِ وَ رَبِّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِیْمِ، اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِیْنَ(خصائص للنسائی) These are very sacred and weighty words. They are a great gift for us in the present day sorrowful situation.
Mice of Plague: At one time, plague would break out like an epidemic. This disease would break out from the mice bred in filth and depopulated whole cities and towns. The filthy mice would carry this disease from filth thinking that the world was there and all humans from upon the earth had been wiped out. At the time of height of plague, it seemed that man would really be wiped out because there were so many funerals in one house at one time. People could not bury them that there appeared other piles of dead bodies. People would die so speedily that the hearts of the successors were despaired so much so tears in eyes got dried. Not to speak of weeping over ones death, all were even anxious whom and where to bury them.
The mice felt delight in this situation and held festivities but Allah has made man crown of all creations. So, they controlled themselves and the mice were to flee away. Thousands of such plagues befell but the mice had to flee at last. The plague of irreligiousness has attacked Pakistan these days. The mice bred on wine, licentiousness, immodesty, unlawful wealth and those who acquire unlawful wealth from the Infidels are striving to push Pakistan to corruption and immodesty. This situation has been going on for a few days due to which these plaguing mice are very happy thinking that Islam and Din will be wiped from this country.
The present day government of PML(N) will fulfil their desires which Parvez Musharraf could not. The government has filed the case of Patthaan Kot in Pakistan under Indian pressure or Hindu intimacy. Then a filthy film and its filthy director was appreciated beyond limits. Then the government of the Punjab passed the bill "Women Rights." Then it killed Mumtaz Qadiri; the lover of the Holy Prophetﷺ at once.
All these steps were taken so rapidly one after the other that this plague sect was overjoyed. The Prime Minister's hearty wish was exposed in his pronouncement that he will celebrate Holi; the festival of the Polytheists wishing Hindus to throw colourful liquid on him. Holi was yet away but he was in a hurry to tinge himself in the colouring of the Infidels. So, he planned to play Holi with the blood of the Muslims in the shape of police encounters, hanging at the gallows and secret massacres. Now, there is colour of red blood everywhere. No sooner did this colour fall at the face of the government, than Modi also began to feel delight. Now, he is soon coming to visit Prime Minister of Pakistan. America also clapped hands in delight that the said government was doing much for her sake. The irreligious sect in Pakistan is dying in the height of delight. If you listen to or read the BBC, look at the people of the Jang Group, study the ill-smelling coloumns of the intoxicated columnists, you will find these mice of plague waving their tails and holding festivities. On the other hand, there are griefs, miseries, worries, funerals and shocks for the religious people. So, let us raise the slogan together which echoed in the cave of thaur.اِنَّ اللّٰہَ مَعَنَا… اِنَّ اللّٰہَ مَعَنَا… اِنَّ اللّٰہَ مَعَنَا Let us recite the supplication taught by the Holy Prophetﷺ to Hazrat Ali لَا اِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللّٰہُ الْعَلِیُّ الْعَظِیْمُ، سُبْحَانَ اللّٰہِ رَبِّ السَّمٰوٰتِ السَّبْعِ وَ رَبِّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِیْمِ، اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِیْنَ ۔
A Sorrowful Scene: How strange these rulers are who went to slaughter Pakistan under the claim of progress and protection? If you have a look at the history of these rulers, your hearts will get burst with grief. First of all Parvez Musharraf raised the slogan "Pakistan First" killed so many Pakistanis and sold so many others. Now, his state is that he is ever anxious to escape from Pakistan. Now, why does he not recall Pakistan first of all? At that time, he said, "Abide by the law." Now, why does he not face the law? Shokat Azizi who disgraced the Pakistanis for so many years is a servant of a Hindu industrialist these days. Mueen Qureshi who remained all-powerful over Pakistan is still serving the foreigners! Zardaari who robbed Pakistan for so many years is sitting in America. Hussain Haqaani who issued certificates of loyalty or treachery is the biggest agent of the imperialists against Pakistan. But the present government has excelled them all. It is pushing Pakistan to a cave where there is all blood and all darkness.
Nothing of terrorism was ascribed to religion in Pakistan. The feudal lords, estate owners and political parties spread terrorism here. Religious terrorism was started during Parvez Musharraf regime with the object to wipe our Din and religion under this guise. Actually, these rulers know neither Pakistan nor the earthly facts. They were born in high castles, were breed abroad, got education in foreign universities always remaining in the grip of the servants and slaves. They think that Islam in Pakistan is limited only to the Masaajid and Madaaris. So when they conquer Masaajid and Madaaris, Pakistan will become a liberal country. While I am busy writing this column, people are casting last glance at Mumtaz Qadiri Shaheed. People have been standing in miles long lines since yesterday to see him. They are neither students of Madaaris nor Mu'azzan nor leaders of prayers in Masaajid. Islam has percolated the roots of Pakistan.
Thank Allah that Pakistani Muslims are very peace-loving and moderate. That's why; you attack them much. When the religious sect realizes that it is difficult to breathe in Pakistan, you will forget raids and 4th schedules. I speak the truth that you yourselves force Muslims to become DAISH. Is teaching of the Holy Quran a crime? How do you break in every Madrassah and ask the names of mothers and sisters of the students there. When these students of religious institutions come on the roads just for twelve hours, you will not find any room to hide yourselves even in the graveyards. These hissing snakes of the NGO's will prove weaker than the earth worms. When the nation demands the audits of enmity of Din and country, these so-called intelligentsia who write ill-smelling columns after drinking wine and smoking cigarettes, who ever clamour for science and try to insult Islam and the scholars, their houses will not provide shelter to them even. Those ignorant people should be asked, "What have you invented so for? Which technology have you devised for the Muslims till now? What have you given the nation except hatred, scorn and disgrace? You fill filth in your pens to earn wealth and taunt the Ulama and Mujaahideen that they have hampered national progress. Have you ever peeped into your hearts" They call themselves claimants of human rights. If someone looks at their private lives closely, one feels nousea. They give human rights neither to their servants nor children, neither their poor neighbours nor poor relatives. Their human rights are limited only to speaking against Islam.
Yes! The situation I perceive is very very sorrowful today. But we are neither despaired nor worried. This game of mice of plague will not last long. The only sorrow is that they are compelling the believers who have been giving the lesson of patience, forbearance and tolerance to tread the path where there is no good at all. When the fire of impatience is ignited it cannot do justice. When the Lava of revenge and restlessness bursts forth, it does not distinguish between the right and the wrong.
Stop Now? All that the government is doing will benefit neither the country nor the government. Maybe, the government scores a few more achievements through these oppressive steps and receives appreciations from the enemies the Muslims of the country may have to face a few more miseries, but this practice will not last long. Religious attachment of Pakistani Muslims is limited neither to a Madrassa nor a personality. This nation will grow neither irreligious nor be cooled down by closing a few religious institutions or killing a few leaders. The milk of the mothers of this nation bears the sacred efficacy of Kalimah, Jihaad and prayer. Tears of the sisters of this nation bear efficacy of passion for faith. Passions of the Shuhada nourish in the soil of this land. Do not make your country Somalia or Lebiya to win good-pleasure of the enemies. Success of projects initiated by Kamal Ata Turk was timely. At that time, religious sect of Turkey had grown mundance. Still, Kamal Ata Turk's spell broke within fifty years. Which of the succeeding ruler succeeded in such secular projects? America, India and Israel are exploiting you knowing well that the country will ruin due to these steps.
Much of oppression! Stop now! Do not be deluded that Pakistani Muslims are horrified due to your steps. No, not at all. The followers of the Holy Prophetﷺ are not afraid of the gallows. These are playing swings for them. Capture, captivity and confinement always strengthen Jihaad. Shahaadat leaves new current of life behind it. The jungles and mountains will take them as their lions whom you pester in their houses. Those whom you send to exile will make trenches their abodes. If you spread terrorism, it will spread beyond limits. Bazaars of death will be conducted if you distribute death. If you keep busy in pleasing the enemies, your own people will be offended with you and then the enemies will throw you in the dustbin like a tissue paper.
