Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 615)

Allah has given life to the Shuhada. It is infidelity to doubt the life of Shuhada. The Holy Quran says: بَلْ اَحْیَائٌ But they are alive. Lo! See! The life of Sultan Fateh Ali Tipu Shaheed is clearly discernible all over India. The ill-smelling filthy Hindus are speaking against him very boisterously. They are burning in the fire of jealousy as if Tipu Shaheed were standing before them smiling whereas the believers are eulogizing his achievements in Masaajid, Madaaris, newspapers and journals. The name of Tipu Sultan Shaheed has been enlivening the dead hearts for nearly two hundred and twenty-five years after his shahaadat. If someone studies his life, the other gains the blessings of بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم through it, someone learns the lesson of Jihaad from it and the other feels the delight of Shahaadat, someone learns the methods of ruling over the world but others learn the secret of becoming a lion whereas Indian Minister Haggarray and his comrades will die one day.
Some black dog will urinate at their Shamshaan Ghaat (Alter Place) whereas life of Tipu Sultan Shaheed will keep warming the hearts of the believers because he was rendered Shaheed while waging Jihaad against the British. When ancestors of Ball Thaakrya and Raj Thaakray died, they were fighting for the British. Those who claim of winning freedom now were siding with the British at that time whereas Tipu Sultan had inflicted a crushing defeat on the British in so many campaigns. Later on, Mir Saadiq and Diwampurnia showed treachery and joined the British. The final battle was fought at Saranga Patam in 1213 AH. according to May 1799. Sultan Tipu fought bravely and at last got killed after receiving so many injuries on his chest while reciting the verses of the Holy Quran. Someone has inferred a wonderful point about his Shahaaat. Tipu got killed for the sake of Allah's Din. Once, Hazrat Allmah Iqbal visited Tipu's grave and stayed there long. When he came out, he was weeping due to intensity of passions saying. (Translation): "Tipu Sultan is leader of those who get killed for love He is a source of honour for the entire earth. His name is brighter than the sun, the moon and the stars. The soil of his grave is more lively and alive than us all."
Do You also Have Anyone? I ask the present rulers of India, "You give words of abuse to great brave, just, saintly and victorious king like Aurangzeb Alamgir. Does your history offer anyone like he? Your Shewa Jee Maraatha of whom you are proud proved an easy prey for Tipu. Give the name of a Hindu Rajah or Maharajah durin five thousand years history of India who may be equal to Alamgir. Alamgir ruled over India for fifty years and expanded the Indian borders from Kerallah to Afghanistan. Now you want to wipe out Aurangzaib's name from India but how? Has there been any ruler in the history of India who might have ruled over so vast empire? Your history ends at the war of Maha Baharat. This was the war in which your one woman used to have five or more husbands. The tales of bravery of Raam consist in the fact that he kept striving to get his wife released for fourteen years. The tales of Krishn end with stealing butter and befooling girls. How do you give words of abuse to Hazrat Tipu Sultan Shaheed when you have so shameful and cowardly history. Your ancestors fell under feet of Tipu. Now when you have come into power due to fluttery of the British, you do not give the due of your ancestors."
Bring only one brave individual like Tipu Sultan if you have courage. How do you doubt integrity of Tipu Sultan? These days, the business of bashlessness and obscenity is running in the whole world due to you only. Your religious leaders are steeped in obscenity, licentiousness and immodesty from head to foot. Have a look at the achievements of your Guru, Raam Gourmet Singh. You are proud of your Baba Sai Satih. When he died, tons of gold was discovered from the safe of his room. What connection between Tipu and you? O unjust, you spit at the moon. That's why; your mouth is ill-smelling. All of your history is sterile and shameful. What else do you possess except giving words of abuse?
Offer No Justification Please: Tipu Sultan Shaheed possessed the bounties of بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم. These sacred words are a key to the blessings. Tipu Sulatn had found the secret of these secrets i.e. ''بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم That's why; he performed the deed of centuries in just forty-eight years. He was in the habit of reciting and writing ''بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم before every of his dictate and point. ''بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم had filled his tasks and timings with bounties. He was born on Zulhajjah 20, on Friday, November 02, 1750. He started gaining the education of the Holy Quran, Arabic and Persian at the age of five. At the death of his venerable father, Haider Ali, he became the ruler of the state whose name was "God-gifted state". He did not regard sovereignty as a post but Allah's trust. Not to speak of enjoyments, he did not take rest to his fill during his seventeen years' reign. He was learned as well as practical man. He was generous as well as sagacious person. He was the man of sword as well as pen. He waged Jihaad with his sword and framed a constitution for Mujaahideen with his pen. He wrote a book named "Fat-hu-Mujaahideen." If we happen to get that book from anywhere, we will publish it again. Achievements of Sultan Tipu Shaheed are so many that dozens of books have been written about them till now still the due of his biography has not been given. How can it be given? He was so wise, intelligent and brave king who seated his four assistants before him and dictated to them his orders at one time respectively while the pen of none of them stopped.
He was so brave person who fought his final battle with so dignity that the enemies were awed to see his dead body. His hand was firmly placed at the handle of his sword even after shahaadat whereas his chest was full of injuries. He was so great servant of the Muslim Ummah who established a vast system of Masaajid and schools in his empire. He was so sagacious who invented the first rocket and missile on the earth. He was so intelligent that he gave an ideal shape to irrigation system in his state. I read a report yesterday that Modi was losing popularity rapidly as his policies had made a mess of Indian economy. On the other hand, the state of popularity of Hazrat Tipu Sultan Shaheed even after seventeen years reign was that when his funeral procession started, millions of people wept sobbing and sighing. Then the sky also joined them in their weeping. The clouds thundered, lightning flashed and rained so heavily that it had never happened before. We are proud that Hazrat Tipu Sultan was a Mu'min Muslim Mujaahid and at last Shaheed.
These days, so many Muslims in India have begun to give justifications about Hazrat Aurangzeb Alamgir and Hazrat Tipu Sultan Shaheed. God-forbid, they equalize these dignified personalities with Gandhi. It is correct that Indian Muslims are very helpless these days but it does not become of them to deny Jihaad of their ancestors presenting them as a dove or begin to brand the present day Muslim Mujaahideen as terrorists. A few poets like Imran Pertaab Garrhi and many Muslim politicians attract the attention of the Muslims by speaking against BJP. But when they offer justifications about their ancestors distorting their achievements, the heart sheds tears of blood. Helplessness of the Indian Muslims is timely which will end soon whereas history and achievements of our ancestors are final. They need no alteration. Islam has always been opposed to oppressions to the minorities. The Muslim rulers from Salah-ud-Din Ayubi to Tipu Sultan did not attack the unarmed non-Muslims but they did not spare those who fought them. Aurangzeb Alamgir's fight with Sheva Jee was Jihaad not a political battle. Tipu Sultan also did not tyrannize Hindu masses but he was a Mujaahid and servant of Islam. No matter if the present day poets and politicians have not the courage to tolerate the achievements of their ancestors but they are requested not to offer justifications for them in a way that they may have to feel ashamed before Allah and those ancestors. They should study the history of India in the light of the Holy Quran, then if they state it, they will be rewarded. If they cannot express it, they should not justify it falsely. Allah be praised, they are holy with good character. They are neither like Modi nor Advani who are a dust for a few days which will shettle soon.
Hijaazi Tinge of Hindi-Muslim: When an Indian Minister expressed insolence against Tipu Sultan, my pen began to kiss Hazrat Tipu Sultan Shaheed. I intended to write about him in detail but my blood was warmed at once and hands began to shake. May Allah revive Jihaad in Hind! What more should I write now? A poet has written beautiful and meaningful verses about Hazrat Tipu Sultan. Let me stop the column with those couplets:

اے شہیدِ مرد میدانِ وفا تجھ پر سلام

تجھ پہ لاکھوں رحمتیں لا انتہا تجھ پر سلام

ہند کی قسمت ہی میں رسوائی کا سامان تھا

ورنہ تو ہی عہد آزادی کا اک عنوان تھا

اپنے ہاتھوں خود تجھے اہل وطن نے کھو دیا

آہ کیسا باغباں شام چمن نے کھو دیا

بت پرستوں پہ کیا ثابت یہ تو نے جنگ میں

مسلم ہندی قیامت ہے حجازی رنگ میں

عین بیداری ہے یہ خواب گراں تیرے لئے

ہے شہادت اک حیات جاوداں تیرے لئے

(Translation) Greetings to you O faithful brave shaheed! Countless mercies and greetings to you! There was situation of disgrace for India. Only you were the symbol of freedom there. Your countrymen lost you themselves. Alas! So great guardian was lost. You proved to the idolators in war that the Indian Muslim is like the Doomsday in Hijaazi tinge. This heavy dream is awakening for you and Shahaadat is eternal life for you.
