RAWALPINDI – September 13: Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, chief of the Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan has said that the Holy Prophet (SAW) rose on the horizon as refulgent sun to give refuge to crying humanity from the oppressor rulers bloody swords and gave manifesto of life in the shape of Kalma-e-Haq for protection of humanity that guarantees survival, success and blessings.
He stated this while addressing the Mehfil-e-Mustafavi marking the Miraj-un-Nabi (ascension of holy Prophet) and Besat-e-Nabawi Day (annunciation of holy Prophets prophethood) here on Monday.
He said the 27th of Rajab-ul-Murajjab enjoys a singular higher status in the history of nations because it keeps night of ascension on which the Quranic Ayah:
سبحان الذي أسرى بعبده ليلاً من المسجد الحرام إلى المسجد الأقصى الذي باركنا حوله لنريه من أياتنا إنه هو السميع البصير
And this Ayah of Surah An-Najm:
ثم دنا فتدلى. فكان قاب قوسين أو أدنى. فأوحى إلى عبده ما أوحى. ما كذب الفؤاد ما راى. أفتمارونه على ما يرى. ولقد راه نزلة أخرى. عند سدرة المنتهى. عندها جنة الماوى. إذ يغشى السدرة ما يغشى. ما زاغ البصر وما طغى. لقد راى من أيات ربه الكبرى.
stand witness making it clear that on that night the mankind and humanity was showered with height and excellence due to him and the day was declared Youm-e-Besat, therefore Allah says:
إقراء باسم ربك الذي خلق
He said the Holy Prophet (SAW) began his Besat taking help in the name of Allah from pen and the teachings that are achieved through it.
Agha Moosavi said that Amirul Momineen Hazrat Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) says that Allah sent his great Messenger in an era when no messenger was sent since long owing to which nations had gone into deep slumber, series of deeds was cut off, flames of battles and fighting were blazing all around, the darkness of ignorance and sin-ness had blackened the world, deception and fraud were openly seated on human beings, leaves of trees of growth of life and guidance were pale, misfortune was laughing at the miserable condition of human beings, riot and violence was nothing more than destruction, clouds of fear and dangers were hovering on hearts, no one considered himself safe. (Nahjul Balagha)
In these circumstances, he said, the message of Monotheism, brought by Holy Prophet (SAW), became guarantee of blessings and success. Therefore, Allah said:
لا إله إلا الله
There is no God but Allah
is My fortress, he who enters it become safe from punishment.
The TNFJ chief stressed that Pakistan has honour of having its foundations on لا إله إلا الله.
The main factor of host of problems and oppression being confronted by the entire humanity is deviation from لا إله إلا الله. Because Allah sent the Prophets and Messengers for welfare, success and deliverance of humanity, and their objective was to restore justice and fair-play and rooting out of oppression and brutality. The Chief of Prophets and Messengers (SAW) came as mercy to all worlds.
وما أرسلناك إلا رحمة اللعالمين
That is why, he added, his life span spread over 63 years stands witness on this point of view that he bore all type of oppression and brutality but did not give even a bit of grief to anyone, discouraged all type of biases, enmities and aggression and preached and disseminated the message of unity, brotherhood, peace and tranquillity. Therefore wherever there is oppression, biases and terrorism, Islam has no link with it even from far.
He said deed of a person could not be termed the deed of any country or a faith, that is why the whole Islamic World condemned all incidents of terrorism including the New York-Washington incident in the garb of which colonial powers committed aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq, and the incident of terrorism that took place in Russia taking the life of innocent minors as well.
The Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Hamid Moosavi said Muslims are being punished for revenge from Islam, and Pakistan is being pressurised for being the citadel of Islam and an atomic power. He said this great oppression that has been termed terrorism is being opposed by us from the day one. He said heinous murders of Prof. Attiq-ul-Hassan, Azeem Abbas Advocate, and Ibrahim Sulphi within the country are a part of the same heinous conspiracy.
In this critical situation, he said, Muslims at large, particularly the people of Pakistan are under the obligation to condemn it and express hatred against terrorists, and declare the brutality and terrorism against any Muslim rather a human being as an insult and humiliation to the whole humanity. That is the only way to provide proof of being the Ummat-e-Wasat by thwarting the conspiracy and mischief of enemies of humanity, he concluded.
RAWALPINDI, September 12: Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi, Central Spokesman of Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan (TNFJ) while strongly condemning the heinous murder of young Azim Abbas Advocate in Lahore and educationist Prof. Atiq-ul-Hassan Naqvi in Quetta termed these incidents open terrorism and a continuation to terrorism going on in the country for the last two and half decades.
In a statement issued here on Sunday, he said, President Gen. Pervez Musharraf not only unveiled the extremist terrorist groups but also banned them. But unfortunately these groups were now working in full capacity with new names, rather have joined political alliances. He said incidents of terrorism were still continuing owing to ineffective implementation of Anti-Terrorism Act.
He said the government should improve the law and order situation because we could not thwart the conspiracy of our combined enemy without tackling the terrorists with an iron hand. The spokesman said that the TNFJ still sticks to its point of view that a terrorist keeps no religion and a country thus deserves no relaxation. He called upon the people to remain alert and keep a strict eye on miscreants.
