God has untied both of these bundles in the days of the Messiah and has revealed their secrets.
  15. 15. A wakeup call for the Amir of Kabul: • The so-called Jihad of attacking people is a sin and against God and Prophet (pbuh) • Amir of Kabul should get together to discuss Jihad and then spread info through religious scholars using pamphlets • Persons who declare Fatwas of Kufr should not be taken lightly
  16. 16. Wakeup call for the Amir of Kabul • It is possible that some people who are ignorant of the facts will, [in the future, even] blame the Amir… • God has given the Amir a chance to set things right. it is mostly Afghans who commit these acts and wield the sword with the intent of becoming ghazis • People should be educated and freed from ignorance.
  17. 17. Proposal to the British Government Govt is competent, but, our duty is to point out what’s useful to govt and public. • Causes of killings: ● Mullah’s teach that by killing persons of other faith (ie.christians), one can enter heaven. Animalistic people act accordingly. Not just Afghans but local mosques in Punjab, India. ● Christian propoganda (1849: Reverend Pfander published Mizanul-Haq) preaching to the ignorant that Islam rewards killing people of other faiths.
  18. 18. Punishment for Apostasy: Holy Quran • Muslim Ulema help enemies of Islam by misrepresenting Islam. Threat from within! • Belief that an apostate should be killed is erroneous  Who is a Muslim? Who is an apostate? What is the quran’s stance on Apostasy
  19. 19. Definition of a Muslim Holy Prophet (SAW) said: "Whoever observes Prayer in the same way as we do, and declares our qibla to be his qibla [i.e., faces the same direction in Prayer as we do]; one who eats from our dhabiha [i.e., the meat of our slaughtered animals] such a one is a Muslim. To protect such a person is a matter of obligation for God and His Messenger. So, [O ye Muslims!] make sure that you do not violate the obligation from God." (Sahib Bukhari, Kitab- ul-Salat).
  20. 20. Definition of an Apostate The Holy Quran says: Surely, those who have turned away after guidance has been made manifest to them have been deceived by Satan who has beguiled them with false hopes (47:26). One who Renounces Islam after having embraced and fully understood it is beguiled by Satan’s false hopes, and should not expect any good from God
  21. 21. The Holy Quran’s Stand towards Apostasy
  22. 22. First Evidence (63:1-6)
  23. 23. 2: When the hypocrites come to thee, they say, ‘We bear witness that thou art indeed the Messenger of Allah.’ And Allah knows that thou art indeed His Messenger, but Allah bears witness that the hypocrites are surely liars. 3: They have made their oaths a shield; thus they turn men way from the way of Allah. Evil surely is that which they have been doing. 4: That is because they first believed, then disbelieved. So a seal was set upon their hearts and consequently they understand not.
  24. 24. 5: And when thou seest them, their figures please thee; and if they speak, thou listenest to their speech. They are as though they were blocks of wood propped up. They think that every cry is against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. Allah’s curse be upon them! How are they being turned away! *6: And when it is said to them, ‘Come, that the Messenger of Allah may ask forgiveness for you,’ they turn their heads aside, and thou seest them keeping back while they are full of pride. “
  25. 25. Further Clarification • Could the Holy Prophet and his companions identify the (Munafiqeen) amongst them? YES • What did the Munafiqeen do to the other believers? they turned men away from the way of Allah. • What did the Holy Prophet and his companions ask of the Munafiqeen? They invited the Munafiqeen to repent and have the Holy prophet as for their forgiveness
  26. 26. Second Evidence (3:73) Revealation Reference: This was revealed when the Islamic State was firmly established and the People of the Book were fully subjugated. If they knew the punishment “73: And a section of the of Apostasy was death, they would never do such a thing People of the Book say, (believe in the morning and ‘Believe in that which has been disbelieve in the evening) revealed unto the believers, in the early part of day, and Conclusion: They had no disbelieve in the latter part such worries of being killed thereof; perchance they may return. “
  27. 27. third Evidence (3: 87-90) “87: How shall Allah guide a people who have disbelieved after believing and who had borne witness that the Messenger was true and to whom clear proofs had come? And Allah guides not the wrongdoing people 88: Of such the reward is that on them shall be the curse of Allah and of angels and of men, all together. 89: They shall abide there under. Their punishment shall not be lightened nor shall they be reprieved; 90: Except those who repent thereafter and amend. And surely, Allah is Most Forgiving, Merciful. “ Where is it mentioned that all of them shall be murdered?????? NOWHERE!!
  28. 28. Fourth Evidence (3: 91-92) “91: Surely those who disbelieve after they have believed and then increase in disbelief, their repentance shall not be accepted, and these are they who have gone astray. 92: As for those who have disbelieved, and die while they are disbelievers, there shall not be accepted from any one of them even an earthful of gold, though he offer it in ransom. It is these for whom shall be a grievous punishment, and they shall have no helpers. “ • In VS. 92 It is not said … As for those who have disbelieved, and WERE KILLED • The use of “die” in VS. 92 indicates natural causes.
  29. 29. Fifth Evidence (3:150) “150: O ye who believe! if you obey those who have disbelieved, they will cause you to turn back on your heels, and you will become losers.” Here, it is not stated that if you returned to disbelief, you shall be killed.
  30. 30. Sixth Evidence (4:138-139) “138: Those who believe, then disbelieve, then again believe, then disbelieve, and then increase in disbelief, Allah will never forgive them nor will He guide them to the way. 139: Give to the hypocrites the tidings that for them is a grievous punishment ” Criteria of being Hypocrite • Believed 2. Disbelieved 3. Believe again 4. Increase in disbelief Reward = Not be forgiven and expect a grievous punishment from God
  31. 31. Seventh Evidence (2:218) “218: They ask thee about fighting in the Sacred Month. Say: ‘Fighting therein is a great transgression, but to hinder men from the way of Allah, and to be ungrateful to Him and to hinder men from the Sacred Mosque, and to turn out its people there from, is a greater sin with Allah; and persecution is worse than killing.’ And they will not cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith, if they can. And whoso from among you turns back from his faith and dies while he is a disbeliever, it is they whose works shall be vain in this world and the next. These are the inmates of the Fire and therein shall they abide.”
  32. 32. Bottom Line Quran does not support killing as the punishment for Apostasy
  33. 33. What about Hadith? Validity test: Hadith vs. Holy Quran Promise about the Quran: Surely, We our self have sent down this Exhortation, and We will, most certainly, safeguard it ( 15: 10). if a hadith is irreconcilable with the Holy Quran, it must be rejected altogether .
  34. 34. First Hadith Bokhari relates, on the authority of Jabir bin Abdullah, that a desert Arab took the pledge of Islam at the hand of the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, and a little later he suffered from fever while he was still in Medina. He came to the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, and said: Messenger of Allah, do release me from my pledge. But the Holy Prophet paid no attention to him. He came a second time and made the same request, and the Holy Prophet refused to comply with his request. He then departed from Medina., whereupon the Holy Prophet observed: Medina is like a furnace which destroys the dross and purifies the rest (Fathul Bari, Vol. XXIII, p.173).
  35. 35. Analysis • If apostasy were punishable by death: – The man could never dared to ask such question – The Holy prophet and his companions would have informed him of the consequences – The holy Prophet and companions would have punished him by death for his apostasy • How did the holy prophet respond? – He welcomed the departure of the man as good riddance and beneficial for the other believers. • Result: Apostasy is not punishable by death!
  36. 36. Second Hadith Abdullah bin Abi Sarah was one of the scribes of the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, in Medina.
  37. 37. became an apostate and joined Meccans and was condemned to death by the Holy Prophet for misdeeds
  38. 38. Hazrat Usman bin Affan, Abdullah’s foster brother gave him shelter in his house where he remained hidden for some days.
  39. 39. Hazrat Usman bin Affan interceded with the Holy Prophet on Abdullah’s behalf. Huzoor remained silent, then forgave Abdullah
  40. 40. Analysis • Abdullah bin Abi Sara was to be punished because of his political offences, not apostasy. • There is no punishment for apostasy from men • If apostasy were punishable by death: ● Hazrat Usman would never have given Abdullah shelter ● The Holy prophet would never have accepted Hazrat Usman's intercession on his behalf. • The Holy Prophet never accepted any intercession in respect of the prescribed punishment for an offence.
  41. 41. Supporting hadith Bokhari has related on the authority of Aisha: The Quraish were much disturbed on account of a Makhzoomi woman who had committed theft. They consulted together and wondered who could approach the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, on her behalf, except Usamah bin Zaid, whom the Holy Prophet held dear. They persuaded Usamah to approach the Holy Prophet, and intercede on behalf of the woman. When he did so, the Holy Prophet rebuked him: Do you intercede in respect of a penalty prescribed by Allah?
  42. 42. Supporting hadith cont. Then he stood up and, addressing his companions, said: Many people before you went astray because they overlooked the offence of a person belonging to a good family and imposed the prescribed penalty upon a common thief. I call God to witness that if Fatimah, daughter of Muhammad, were to be guilty of theft, I would certainly cut off her hand (Bokhari, Indian edition, p.lOO3).
  43. 43. Third hadith Bokhari has related, on the authority of Braa bin Aazib, that in the treaty of Hudaibiyyah, the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, agreed with the pagans of Mecca that if anyone of them became a Muslim and came to Medina, he would be returned to the Meccans, but that if a Muslim departed from Medina and joined the Meccans, they would not be under obligation to return him to the Holy Prophet (Bokhari, Egyptians edition, Vol. II, p. 76). Allowing a Muslim to denounce Islam and join forces with the Meccans shows that there was no punishment in place for Apostasy
  44. 44. • Danish Newspaper tried to portray images of Prophet Muhammad associated with terrorism. • A Burst of outrage, terrorism, and cruelty were Muslims. • Double Standards of super-powers
  45. 45. • Danish Newspaper published cartoons – Non-Ahmadi Muslim Response: destruction and threats of murder and violence. • Result: Tainted picture of Islam/Damage to Islam • Ahmadis recognize the need/advent of a reformer and portray the correct message – Believe in one God who taught men to live in love an affection. Believe in all messangers • HOW CAN ISLAM teach HATRED?
  46. 46. Islam: Antidote of Cruelty Peace Submission and Achieving Obedience Reconciliation Islam Walk Leave someone together in when he’s likely harmony to cause you Love harm Tolerance, Endurance, Freedom of conscience Freedom of speech Right to express an opinion.
  47. 47. And say, ‘It is the truth from your Lord; wherefore let him who will, believe, and let him who will, disbelieve.’… (Ch. 18:V.30)
  48. 48. • The prophet’s job is to spread the message with kindness, love affection and tolerance. • Share that which you believe to be from God.
  49. 49. • Objection to the verse: it was revealed when Muslims were minority. such words were used so that the disbelievers of Makkah do not cruelly destroy all the Muslims • Answer: – This is not so. Quran is still as good today as was before. The verse still applies – Even so, this had no effect on Meccans as they continued to brutally kill and persecute Muslims.
  50. 50. Muslims migrated to Medina.
  51. 51. In Medina… • Pact with Jews: freely live together respecting each others’ rights • At first, Jews were dominant (in number), soon, Muslims became dominant with Hadhrat Muhammad (pbuh) as Governor. • Allah Ta’ala revealed: – There should be no compulsion in religion… (Ch.2:V.257) • No use of force in matters of religion
  52. 52. Pact with the Jews w ith each other l l live together ommit any ● Muslim s and Jews sha and shall not c in kindnes s and sincerity nother; xcess nor be cruel to one a and Muslims to e , their own faith ● The Jew s will keep to th eir own; ha ll be respected f all citizens s as been ● The life and property o case a crime h and protec ted save in the ; co mmitte d by someone r ophet of Allah ’s f erred for the P g authority but ● All disp utes will be re the determinin decision b ecause he has ndividual people shall be all decisions in respect of i . respective laws based on their
  53. 53. Standard of Tolerance The Holy Qur’an states: …and let not a people’s enmity incite you to act otherwise than with justice. Be always just, that is nearer to righteousness. (Ch.5:V.9) If you can forgive, then forgive, that is better. If you must seek revenge, then the recompense of an injury is no more than the injury inflicted on you.
  54. 54. Forgiveness and Ikramah • On conquering Mecca, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) forgave everyone. • Ikramah, greatest enemy of Islam, being defeated at hands of Muslims, fled. • Ikramah’s wife pleaded for forgiveness. • Huzoor Forgave; • Ikramah arrogantly said, don’t think I’ll be a Muslim after you forgive me • Prophet (pbuh) still forgave him and many others.
  55. 55. Freedom of Speech (Masnad Ahmad bin Hanbal Vol.6 p.268 published Beirut) • Prophet bought a camel in exchange of 90 kilos of dried dates from a bedouin • Upon his return home, he realized he did not have that many. • He Returned to the Bedouin and told the truth. • The Bedouin addressing the prophet said “O defrauder” • People began to tell the bedouin off but; • The Prophet said “Let him be”
  56. 56. Freedom of Faith • Delegation of Christians from Najran • During the meeting in Masjid Nabawi, Christians excused themselves to pray. • The Prophet (pbuh) invited them to pray in the mosque. • The pact drawn with Christians gave them • Freedom of faith, protection of churches and rights. • Funding the Repair of church by a Muslim would be an act of benevolence.
  57. 57. ‘O Prophet! ask the people of the Book and the ignorant people of Arabia to enter the religion of Islam. So if they enter Islam, they have attained guidance but if they turn away, then your work is only to convey
