  • 16. “ Invite with Wisdom (bil-Hikmah) not with the Law (bil-Ahkam)” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011) TO CONTINUE - INSHA-ALLAH ... IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, MOST COMPASSIONATE, MOST MERCIFUL.
  • 17. “ Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knows, best who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.” ( Qur’an: Surah an-Nahlu: 16: 125 ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 18. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011) “ Not upon you, [O Muhammad], is [responsibility for] their guidance, but Allah guides whom He wills.. ” ( Qur’an: Surah al-Baqarah: 2: 272 )
  • 19. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011) “ Fully aware are We of what they [who deny resurrection] do say; and thou canst by no means force them [to believe in it]. Yet none the less, remind, through this Qur’an, all such as may fear My warning. ” ( Qur’an: Surah Qaf: 50: 45 )
  • 20. “ Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from Error; whoever rejects Evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah hears and knows all things.” ( Qur’an: Surah al-Baqarah: 2: 256 ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 21. “ If it had been the Lord's Will they would all have believed all who are on earth! Wilt thou then compel mankind against their will to believe!” ( Qur’an: Surah Yunus: 10: 99 ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 22. “ And pursue not that of which thou hast no knowledge; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or of (feeling in) will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).” ( Qur’an: Surah al-Isra’: 17: 36 ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 23. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 24.
    • The (Qur’an) clear teaching that Islam forbids force conversion or by any deceptions. Any Muslims who acted contrary is not representing Islam.
    • Spread of Islam is by conquest which Arabic the word ” FATHU ” is used – this means “ opening ” i.e. to free the land from any form of oppression impeding freedom for any to seek the Truth and choose their own religion. Thus we see the Jews, the Coptic, the various Christian Orthodox churches, the Zoroastrians, etc. had not only survived but thrived, in Islamic dominated lands.
    • Payment of “ jizyah ” is not to force but rather a tax – their acknowledgement of Muslim rule in which their religious freedom is guaranteed and protected.
    All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 25.
    • The contemporary proof is that after the 9/11, with Islamaphobia in the West, and the obsessive maligning of Islam , of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. and the Muslim by the most media and anti-Islam lobbies – yet, conversion the Islam in the West is steadily on the increase. Surely, this cannot be by ‘force’ nor by any deception.
    • The few so-called “ ex-Muslims preachers ” ( murtadeen ) are either hoax by those pandering for Western audience, or ex-Muslims who were ignorant of Islam, or those disenchanted with the moral teachings, politics and lifestyle of their Muslim countries. Their lack of knowledge is self-evident. Whereas almost all new converts to Islam are knowledgeable, educated and well-informed about Islam as well as of their previous faith they held.

  • 26.
    • Only the living can give life to the dead. It has always been that only a convinced Muslim can convinced others. If not by their preaching, their transformation from their past ways to become a better person through Islam is sufficient and a powerful statement.
    • Ponder on the wise Arabic proverb:
    All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011) “ The ‘tongue’ (statement) of a (person’s state or ) condition is more eloquent than the speech of any tongue.”
  • 27. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 28.
    • The primary concern of the Shari’ah can be summed up, generally as :
    “ (towards ensuring a better life by) providing “ maslahat ” (benefits) and the removal of “ mafsadah ” (harm) for mankind.” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 29.
    • Thus the Shari’ah laws are there to firstly preserve the basic rights :
    •   Dharuriyyah : “ the essential rights of mankind .”
    • This can be said to be Islam’s stipulations of basic human rights - which the purpose of any legislative philosophy should uphold. Yet, because Shari’ah is based on Divinely revealed principles , clearly established and documented, it cannot be repealed anymore, like the man made legislative system.
    All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 30.
    • The five important essentials (human rights) which it seeks to preserve are:
    • right of religion,
    • right to life,
    • right to proper use of the intellect,
    • right to ownership of property,
    • right of progeny (including preservation of honour and dignity).
    Dharuriyyah : the essential rights of mankind. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 31.
    • Not only does the Shari’ah laws are there to preserve these basic rights, it goes even beyond mere essentials but includes catering to related human needs ( Haa-jiat ) :
    • Haa-jiat : “ the needs of mankind .”
    • The needs are those requirements attached to the essential rights as mentioned above. Thus, it provides a wide and dynamic scope for jurists to extend and include considerations for changing circumstances of human life.
    Haa-jiat : the needs of mankind. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 32.
    • Not merely the essential and needs, the Shari’ah even strive towards the ultimate betterment, termed:
    • Ta h siniyyat : the perfection of mankind’s well-being.
    Ta h siniyyat : the perfection in well-being. The perfection of man’s life are those which society is enjoined by Islam to aspire to, which can be summed up into two broad categories: MAKARIM AL-AKHLAQ MA H AASIN AL-’AADAH All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 33.
    • As the aim in legislation is to ensure well-being of society, Islam’s fundamental focus is also towards the actualizing the goodness in man through, ‘ reform ’ or ‘ rehabilitation ’ of its citizen towards noble ethical virtues, without which the ‘goodness’ of any law would be worthless - as otherwise, it can never be manifested in society.
    MAKARIM AL-AKHLAQ : “ the nobility of character of citizens” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 34.
    • Thus, the educative (element) of the Prophet’s implementation of Shari’ah upon the citizens must never be overlooked, lest it become dry legalism - enforcement lacking compassion and autocratic – which is opposed to how the Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w. had taught and had successfully established ( SUNNAH ) to the first generation amongst our pious predecessors . Allah SWT recorded praises regarding his exemplary approach:
    MAKARIM AL-AKHLAQ : “ the nobility of character of citizens” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 35. MAKARIM AL-AKHLAQ : “ the nobility of character of citizens” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 36. MAKARIM AL-AKHLAQ : “ the nobility of character of citizens” “ It is part of the Mercy of Allah that thou dost deal gently with them. Wert thou severe or harsh-hearted they would have broken away from about thee; so pass over (their faults), and ask for (Allah's) forgiveness for them; and consult them in affairs (of moment). Then when thou hast taken a decision, put thy trust in Allah. For Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).” ( Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3:159 ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 37.
    • “ And thou (Muhammad) standest on an exalted standard of character.”
    • ( Qur’an: al-Qalam: 68:4 )

    • “ Verily I have not been raised (as a Prophet) except to perfect the noble nature (akhlaq) of mankind''.

  • 39.
    • As to these (perfecting life-style and customs by making available all that which benefits society) – the Shari’ah must aim to affect positively to the customs and life-style in others based upon universal moral value inherent in all religion or humane , so that life can be an expression of praising and glorification of God.
    MAHASIN-AL-’AADAH : “ perfecting customs or life-style” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 40.
    • The right or freedom to choose religion being upheld, does not prevent positive interaction amongst various people of different race or religion to be done.
    • Islamic Da’wah (call, invitation or propagation) is most effectively done , by providing a practical examples. Even if others do not accept to embrace Islam, it wish to share the universal human morality inherent in people so that life becomes better if not the best.
