Roots of terrorism. Part 5
Terrorism against Seeker of Help
The Wahabis, who believes in Wahabiat, do not recognize the marital (marriage relation), which from time to time different Prophets of God have been showing but all these things are simply refused and refuted by them. All the heavenly religions, God tuned religions, accept the marital, which has been bestowed upon the people by God on time to time.
To seek help from the Prophets and Saints is considered to be a sin, a major sin by Wahabis. According to their doctrine, whosoever seeks help from the Prophets or saints must be put to the sword and slain because he/she is dubbed as Mushriq (atheist, non-believer.
Whereas, there are many verses in the Holy Quran, Zaboor (Holy Book revealed to Hazrat David) and Bible through which we come to know that companions and friends of Prophets have sought help in the time of adversity from their respective Prophets of the time. In this regard many Quranic verses can be cited in order to prove this version.
According to Wahabis’ belief and ideology it is only and only God from whom, help can be sought. Any person deviating (turns away) from this track, that is, instead of seeking help from God goes to a Prophet or any Holy person (Aulia) is been labeled a Kafir, (atheist and non-believer).They give prove from the Quran in Surah Naml, verse 38 and 40
"He said: O chiefs! Which of you can bring to me her throne before they com to me in submission."
"One who had the knowledge of the book said: I will bring it to you in the twinkling of an eye."
Hazrat Soloman said or rather requested his courtiers, "Who among you can bring the Throne of Sheba (Takteh Belqis)."
One person in the gathering got up who had a little knowledge from the book, professed, “I can bring the throne of Belqis,” that is the man claimed and showed that he could bring the throne of Belqis within the twinkling (blinking) of an eye, in trice (in a jiffy), in no time. If it was only God who could assist the people, then why after all did Hazrat Soloman (peace be upon him) put such a question to the gathering and why did he accept the offer of the man?
In the similar fashion, in the Quran , the nation or the people of Hazrat Musa (peace be upon him) were having difficult time in a desert. They were extremely thirsty requested him to help and to provide water, at that time God sent a revelation to Hazrat Musa (peace be upon him) telling him, ‘strike your stick on the rock, and by doing this, from the rock twelve springs will spring out, flow out’. Here God himself could have send torrential (stormy) rain to quench (satisfy) their thirst, but God fulfilled their wishes through Hazrat Musa (peace be upon him), thus, revealed to them and by this action transpired (occurred) to them that seeking of help through the Prophets amounts, equals to seeking help from Him.
The Wahabis are deadly against this concept. In The Holy Quran and other Heavenly Scriptures, it is abundantly proved that an ordinary piece of wood that touches the hand of the Prophet, that piece of the wood could show miracles too.
Therefore, we can deduce (conclude) justifiably that it is good to show esteem (respect) to all the relics (Tabarookat) of all the Holy Prophets.
In Surah Yusuf there is another verse regarding the shirt of Hazrat Yusuf (peace be upon him), which was brought from Egypt to Hazrat Yaquob (peace be upon him) who by putting it on his eyes regained his vision, his vision came back. It is quite clear and evident that Yusuf was not wearing the shirt when it was put on his father’s eyes; however, there was a great distance of land between the two prophets. Hazrat Yusuf (peace be upon him) was at one place and Hazrat Yaquob (peace be upon him) at another far and wide. We come to the conclusion that distance matters the least and the greatness of one Prophet cannot impede (hinder) the greatness of another, it stands prominent in its place.
According to Wahabis' belief or ideology non other than the God knows the secret knowledge of unknown, therefore, anybody believing the Ambiya, Prophets and Saints to have that kind of faculty is considered to be a sinful person, and for that reason he/she is justified to be killed and his/her properties to be plundered and looted.
If you just consider all the beliefs that the Wahabis have, you can safely deduce and come to the conclusion that they only need excuse, so that keeping in view and having that excuse at hand they may go and loot, plunder other Muslims or harm them in any way they like. Unfortunately, all this painful drama of murder and arson (burning injuriously) is done in the name of Islam.
In the ordinary state of life, in the ordinary business of life whoever commits a murder or quietly loots a person considers himself/herself inwardly, consciously guilty and thinks that he/she has done wrong action.
However, in Wahabism not only do they mask, but cover all their crimes under the cloak of religion. Not only this, but they feel by going to that extent to have done all sorts of perpetrations (atrocities) they will earn merits (credit) in this life as well as get a reward in the world hereafter from God.
Now, if these harmful, injurious and fatal beliefs go unchecked then there will be high spread of terrorism resulting in great breach (violation) of peace throughout world and the situation will go from bad to worse, beyond correction, beyond adjustment, and will be averse (reluctance) to remedy (cure).
In fact, there are many verses available in the Holy Quran, in the Bible and in other Holy Scriptures showing that Ambiya, Prophets have been given a knowledge which is occult (secret) (Ilm Ghaib), and hidden knowledge, which no ordinary persons possess. As it has been quoted in Surah A’l-e-Imran verse number 49, "I determine for you out of dust like the form of a bird, then I breath into it and it becomes a bird with God's permission and I heal the blind and the leprous and bring the dead to life with God's permission and I inform you of what you should eat and what should you store in your houses; most surely there is a sign in this for you, if you are believer." That Hazrat Isa- Jesus (peace be upon him) says, ‘I can make a bird out of the wet earth, clay and I can treat the patients of leprosy; I can give vision back to the blind; and I can revive the dead; and all works that you do at your homes I have knowledge of it’. It inspires, or amounts to this that Jesus (peace be upon him) is saying that he has occult knowledge, which has been given to him by God. After such a transparent statement from Jesus, if any Wahabi refutes it, what can we call it except sheer (pure) ignorance?
Here again the Wahabis show their dishonesty regarding these verses, which talk about the idols but they just twist and apply them to the Prophets.
It is already mentioned that this sect has no scope for dialogue or discussions and there is no freedom and liberty for any such things. They simply do not allow books and any written material of other various religions in their country, however, in this way they preserve their God forsaken ideas and beliefs, which are based purely or totally on ignorance, bias and prejudice, though not common in practice yet remain intact.
Essentially, there must be a dialogue, table discussion and exchange of views among scholars of various sects so that the viewpoint may be enlarged and highlighted. All of the world at large should take notice of these dangerous (injurious) and unhealthy beliefs, which are eroding (destroying) the bases of the world and to this end they should sit down together and find out a solution to put an end to this Wahabism. The different countries together should evolve a system, some rules and regulations. They must take notice of a country, which totally avoids dialogue and admission of good ideas by simply disallowing the availability of books, materials, magazines and etc of other nations and sects in its own territories.
On the other hand, that country may go on misleading people through their worthless, faulty literature and in this way, people are deprived from love of their country, love of humanity as they are kept in utter darkness. This kind of disdainful (contempt) activities should be totally banned so that in future such kind of dangerous group, religion or religious sect purely based on terrorism may not be framed and may not come up whose ideology is not based on intelligence, vitality (liveliness), love and on humanity.
Biasness in Celebration of Anniversary of Births and Deaths
There is another oddity (stupidity), or a very strange quality of Wahabis. They are so biased and prejudiced towards the celebration of functions regarding the death anniversary and birthdays of certain Prophets and saints (Aulia). According to them this being abominable (disgusting) and unwanted kind of thing should be avoid tooth and nail. Whereas, looking into the world we find that all such type of functions is arranged in connection with the birth and death anniversaries of the Prophets. These functions are very much celebrated with great pomp and show and appeal to our intelligence, and there is a lot of justification about it. As the great people have strived (tried) hard in leading us to the right track so to celebrate their days becomes a sort of inspiration, spirit comes to us and we are goaded (urged) up to go to the right track. In this way, commemorating the death or birth anniversary of those great people does not harm or does not bring any devastate (havoc) whatsoever rather it is beneficial. But the Wahabis take it as a big sin.
A few years back Muslims took out a procession in Saudi Arabia commemorating (in memory of), celebrating the birthday of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny). Those people in the procession were molested, harshly beaten, arrested and put behind the bars. Whereas, according to the Holy Quran, we are permitted to celebrate such kind of functions, which are purely Islamic, so this is Eid (festival).
In Surah Maidah verse 114,
"Jesus, the son of Mary said: O God, our Lord! Send down to us food from heaven which should be to us an ever-recurring happiness, to the first of us and the last of us."
According to this verse Hazrat Isa (Jesus) accosted God and said, "Oh! God send us a bird from Heaven, and the day you send the bird and the day it reaches us that will be the day of auspicious day (Eid), of merry-making for us." This verse proves that on any day God sends a boom (blessing, gift) and the day we are to indulge ourselves in conviviality (jovial) is to be remembered as in this verse Jesus wished that day should also remain as an Eid day, merry-making day for the people who are yet to come. If on certain day that wanted bird lands upon us that day is considered as Eid day and the day on which the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) was sent to us from God for our guidance then why should we not consider that day as a day for joy and happiness? Studying the whole structure of the Wahabis' beliefs, we understand that their gospels and their beliefs are completely against all the Quranic versions and all the other Holy Scriptures
Is there blessing or Reward after Death
There another doctrine, of the Wahabis, which does not conform to senses or to the religion. They believe that when certain person is passed away from this world and the relatives of the deceased do some kind of good deed or action for him/her, the dead do not receive any of the good deeds.
They, in order to deceive, misguide the people just quote a fraction of a verse of the Holy Quran , the literal translation of which is that ‘a man can get reward for what he has done, and only as much as he has done’. Certainly, this verse refers to the Day of Judgment. It is revealed in purport of this verse that on the Day of Resurrection, or in the hereafter, he/she will get whatever he/she performs in the span (measure) of his/her life. This verse is been related to the wrath of Allah, which befalls on man. Whatever, the sins or whatever, the good deeds are performed by a person in this world he/she will be rewarded accordingly.
It is customary almost in the world or everybody practice that if the person is dead, the relations of the decease do something for him. It is said that the person receives the melt (dissolve) of that thing. If we make these things as our belief that the deceased does not receive anything, this is exactly the debate (discuss) or belief, which resembles the belief of delinquent (evildoer) atheist, non-believer of God, that death is the end of life.
Whereas, all the natural religions, which have been ordained and sent to the land by God, proclaim that death is not the end of life rather it is the deliverance from this world to eternal life. If one died, it does not mean that his life has really ended but he is actually leading his life in the world to come, in the hereafter. Death is visible, which we can see in our daily routine of life that death is the name given to the death of the body but so far as the Soul is concerned, it is eternal, everlasting. In reality, it is the human body, which decomposes after some time, the original thing that comes into the body, is the Spirit or Soul, which is everlasting.
In all the Holy Scripture, the Soul (Ruh) or the Spirit has been proved in varied and different ways because it is not a material thing. After analyzing the characteristics of matter we find and understand that human beings have extra qualities of love, hatred and due consideration (thought- fulness) which are not attached with matter means matter is devoid of these characteristics. Similarly, matter does not have the aspiration (desire) to grow and prosper. All these qualities of growing, progressing and so on are seen in human beings. By these simple examples we can learn that it is not only this factor of matter, which shapes man but the Soul as well. So man is a combination of body and Soul together, and in man there are twin things combined, love and hatred of which combination is only due to Soul or Spirit. Further, the idea of success and progress is again solely (alone) due to the Spirit.
Another thing, which is common to all human beings, who are living on the earth, that they hate or dislike the end of life or mortality or destruction. On the contrary, they prefer eternity and wish their life to be everlasting. It is quite palpable and we understand it quite well that the relationship of the human body with Soul can not live long in this material world and the time comes when they get segregated (separated). All these limbs and organs of the human body, after failing, stop functioning well, as they used to do in the early stages of life. With the passing time life becomes decrepit (worn out) and imbecility (feeblemindedness) slowly and gradually creeps (enters slowly) into the human body. When it is unfeasible (unlikely) for body and Soul to live together all the time to come, though it is preposterous (unreasonable, improbable) beyond thinking to live, yet there are a struggle and a desire of every human being to live in this world.
This is a point to think over that when the materialistic organs fail and physically living of the man is not possible for all the time to come then why is it aspired? Why people die for it? Why they try hard to maintain it? Why do they aspire to live for a very long time, for all the time to come? This is a natural phenomenon (event) that everybody loves to have everlasting kind of life, why is this so? It is altogether due to the soul, which does exist within human body, because the soul is imperishable (everlasting), which is not going to destroy, therefore, human beings aspire to live. There are many, many proofs and reasons that can be cited in this respect to prove that death is not the name that can be given to the end of life.
Prove of Existence of soul
In order to prove Spirit, the religious scholars have presented a very good, appealing and a cogent reason. They maintain that matter has many characteristics of which one is that the organs or the parts of the body are made of matter that can only function at one time, perform only one work, for example, we can see by eye, the function of the eye is to see but it cannot speak nor hear. With hands we can touch things but we cannot speak with them.
We can smell with nose but we cannot speak with it. This is the limitation of matter, and also the organs made of it.
Let us analyze dream, to see what actually happens in the dream? During a dream one experiences that one does not use tongue but he speaks, in the dream, he can see things but without eyes and without ears he hears everything and his hands are lying rigid and are not active but in the dream he uses his hands. In the dream, these entire things one sees, hears, and touches and so on, without using material organs, having said that, the dream itself can be used as an argument that the Spirit of the man can see without eyes, can smell without nose, and can hear without ear. The Spirit works and performs all those actions together with the physical organs. This is impossible for the organs made of matter to perform all these actions at a time. Experiencing the dream, everybody knows, it is the Spirit of the man which sees, hears, touches, smells and performs every kind of functions, which are performed by all the five channels of sense fission (splitting) organs.
So, it is proved that there is an entity called soul. Certainly, it does not emanate (originate) from matter means it is not made of matter. By this argument we can understand the reality of the Soul or Spirit. In addition to this, there are many other arguments, which have been presented by the religious scholars, and so many experiments have been carried out in these days on Spirit. Thus the point has been covenanted (compacted) that no one can deny the existence of Spirit.
Of those experimentations there is one experiment, which is true and real. Once someone saw a deceased, late or departed person in his dream the person told him, ‘on a certain place there is a security, trust is lying down in some place, or is put down somewhere and it belongs to so and so person. Please take it and hand it to the man concerned’. As the man rose from his dream, he curiously (strangely) went to and explored the place mentioned. To his astonishment, he found the surety and went to the man concerned to deliver it to him. The man also accepted that it was his surety.
After having experienced such things, no one can deny the effect that Spirit does not exist in the world, and no one can believe death as end of life. But death is virtually (in reality) end of physical being of the person. Death is like altering or changing of the dress or clothing of the Soul. The Spirit or the Soul departs from the body at the time of death. However, the effects of all those actions or deeds performed by the person in his/her life are preserved in the Spirit or the Soul. Spirit has a creative power, therefore, when the Spirit or the Soul throws away the material body then it creates another body from those effects, which is an immaterial kind of a body then the soul, enters into it forever.
Therefore, no Religion of God, natural religion, does consider that death is the end of human life; rather there are connections available between the world and the Hereafter (Alam-e-Barzakh). According to the given example the soul of the dead person comes down from the Alam-e-Barzakh for help. Such a way, difficulties can be removed by performing good deeds on behalf of the deceased person in order to help and comfort him/her.
The Wahabis believe that any noble work or deed performed after the death of a person is useless or it does not give any advantage to the dead. This belief is the concomitant (accompanying) result of their stone heartiness (unemotionalness).
Because, according to many traditions of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny), which are duly recorded so that if someone dies you can fast for him/her, you can offer prayers and you can give alms (charity) in the name of the deceased persons. The Prophet of God (peace be upon him and his progeny) said, ‘the person who dies and he has missed Fasting and Prayers then it is imperative (necessary) upon the eldest son of the deceased soul to offer fasts and prayers on behave of his father. This is present in ‘Sahih Muslim’ in the Chapter (babae) of Qaza Al siyam annil Mayyat this kind of verdict is available.
In the second Tradition, the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) has said that if a person is in debt (arrears) and dies before paying it back then his/her relatives can pay the debt this way the departed person will be forgiven and rewarded. This tradition is narrated by Ibne Abbass that a lady came to the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) and told him that her mother had died and she had missed her Fasts. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) asked the lady whether her mother was in debt (owing money to someone). And would she be in a position to discharge or pay the debt of her mother, the woman replied in affirmation. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) told her that, in the similar fashion, she had discharged her debt to God (meaning her missed Fast). Upon this, the woman, then and there, said, ‘I free this female servant’. Then the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) told her that a reward or a merit is given to your mother on this account. This tradition is available in the book ‘Sahih Muslim’. There is another tradition narrated by Hazrat Aisha that a person came to the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) and told him that his mother had died without any will, however, he thought to give some charity (Sadaka) in his mother's name, ‘will she be in position to receive some kind of reward or merit’. The Prophet of God (peace be upon him and his progeny) said, ‘why not? She will get some benefits’. In the book ‘Sahih Muslim’, Chapter (Babae) Wasool Sawab Sadaka ila Al-Mayyat, this Tradition is available. The other Tradition is in the book ‘Sunnan Abi Dawood’, which is narrated by Saad ibni Abbada, who is a companion of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny). He says when his mother died he came to the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) and asked what kind of Sadaka (charity) would be beneficial for his deceased mother so that he should offer. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) said, ‘the best Sadaka is water’. So, Saad dug a well and made it public for all to drink from the well in his mother's name. The volume of such Traditions that we have so far narrated. It comes to limelight that from our good deeds our deceased can benefit after death. Therefore, death is not the name of end of life but the life continues in new form after death. And there is a link and connection between these two: life of Barsakh and life of the material world.
