HADEES : THE DAY OF JUDGMENT

THE DAY OF JUDGMENT

The Day of Judgment (qiyAmat), the Last Day (yaumu�l-Akhir), is an indispensable prop of Muslim theology.  In the QurAn, the word qiyAmat appears seventy times and in addition has seventy-five synonyms, as shown by Mirza Hairat in his Mukaddma TafsIru�l Furqan. Along with its attendant concepts, Paradise and Hell, it pops up from practically every page of the HadIs too.  The dreaded day (yaum), colorfully described as the day of �reckoning� (hisAb), or of �separation� (fasl), or of �standing up� (qiyAmah), is mentioned over three hundred times in the QurAn.

The arrival of the Last Day will be announced by many signs.  �When you see a slave woman giving birth to her master-that is one sign; when you see barefooted, naked, deaf and dumb as the rulers of the earth-that is one of the signs of Doom.  And when you see the shepherds of the black camels exult in buildings-that is one of the signs of Doom� (6).  In short, when the poor and the deprived inherit the earth, that is the end of it according to Muhammad.

There is a vivid account of the Day of Resurrection in eighty-two ahAdIs at the end of the �Book of Faith.� Muhammad tells us that on this day, Allah �will gather people,� a �bridge would be set over the hell,� and �I [Muhammad] and my Ummah would be the first to pass over it� (349).

Unbelievers, of course, will be thoroughly miserable on this day but even the Jews and the Christians-the Peoples of the Book-will fare no better.  For example, Christians will be summoned and asked, �What did you worship?� When they reply, �Jesus, the son of Allah,� Allah will tell them, �You tell a lie; Allah did not take for Himself either a spouse or a son.� Then they will be asked what they want.  They will say: �Thirsty we are, O our Lord!  Quench our thirst.� They will be given a certain direction, and Allah will ask: �Why don�t you go there to drink water?� When they go there, they will find that they have been misguided; the water is no more than a mirage, and it is really hell.  Then they will �fall into the Fire� and perish (352).

On this day, no other prophet or savior will avail except Muhammad.  People will come to Adam and say: �Intercede for your progeny.� He will reply: �I am not fit to do this, but go to IbrAhIm, for he is the friend of Allah.� They will go to IbrAhIm, but he will reply: �I am not fit to do this, but go to Moses, for he is Allah�s Interlocutor.� They will go to Moses, but he will reply: �I am not fit to do this, but you go to Jesus, for he is the Spirit of Allah and His Word.� They will go to Jesus, and he will reply: �I am not fit to do this; you better go to Muhammad.� Then they will come to Muhammad, and he will say: �I am in a position to do that.� He will appeal to Allah, and his intercession will be granted (377).

In many ahAdIs (381-396), Muhammad tells us that among the apostles he has a special intercessory power, for �no Apostle amongst the Apostles has been testified as I have been testified� (383).  If this is true, it gives substance to his claim that among the apostles he �would have the largest following on the Day of Resurrection� (382).  Thanks to his special role, �seventy thousand persons of [my] Ummah would enter Paradise without rendering an account� (418), and Muslims �would constitute half the inhabitants of Paradise� (427).  Considering that unbelievers, infidels, and polytheists are strictly kept out, and that the entry of Jews and Christians also is prohibited, one wonders who will be the other half of the population of Paradise.

How did Muhammad acquire this special intercessory power?  Muhammad himself answers this question: �There is for every Apostle a prayer which is granted, but every prophet showed haste in his prayer.  I have, however, reserved my prayer for the intercession of my Ummah on the Day of Resurrection� (389).  The translator makes this statement clearer for us.  He says: �The Apostles are dear to Allah and their prayers are often granted.  But with every Apostle there is one request which may be called decisive with regard to his Ummah, and with it is decided their fate; for example, Noah in a state of distress uttered: �My Lord! leave not any one of the disbelievers in the land� (al-QurAn 71.26). Muhammad reserved his prayer for the Day of Resurrection and he would use it for the salvation of the believers� (note 412).

We have no means of knowing about the curse of Noah, but this kind of cursing is quite in Muhammad�s line.  For example, look at his curse against several tribes: �O Allah! trample severely Muzar and cause them a famine . . . O Allah! curse LihyAn, Ri�l ZakwAn, Usayya, for they disobeyed Allah and His Messenger� (1428).

In any case, when the disbelievers are being hurled into the Fire, Muhammad will not intercede even when he knows that no other intercession would avail: �Thou shalt not damn thy enemies, but needst not go out of your way to save them.�

कुरान समीक्षा : खुदा क्या ईमानदार परीक्षक था?

खुदा क्या ईमानदार परीक्षक था?

क्या इससे खुदा ईमानदार परीक्षक साबित किया जा सकता है?

देखिये कुरान में कहा गया है कि-

व अल-ल-म-आदम ल अस्मा………..।।

(कुरान मजीद पारा १ सूरा बकर रूकू ४ आयत ३१)

और (हमने) आदमी ‘‘आदम’’को सब (चीजों के) नाम बता दिये। फिर उन चीजों को फरिश्तों के सामने पेश करके कहा कि अगर सच्चे हो तो हमको इन चीजों के नाम बताओ।

कालू सुब्हान-क ला इल्-म……………….।।

(कुरान मजीद पारा १ सूरा बकर रूकू ४ आयत ३२)

फरिश्ते-बोले-तू पाक है जो तूने हमको बता दिया है। उसके सिवाय हमको कुछ नहीं मालूम सचमुच तू ही जानने वाला और पहचानने वाला है।

का-ल या आदमु अम्बिअ्हुम्……….।।

(कुरान मजीद पारा १ सूरा बकर रूकू ४ आयत ३३)

तब खुदा ने हुक्म दिया कि ऐ आदम! तुम फरिश्तों को इनके नाम बता दो, फिर जब आदम ने फरिश्तों को उन (चीजों) के नाम बता दिए तो खुदा ने फरिश्तों से कहा, क्यों हमने तुमसे नहीं कहा था कि हमको सब पोशिदा बातें मालूम हैं।

समीक्षा

जब एक परीक्षक एक विद्यार्थी को पूछें जाने वाले प्रश्नों के उत्तर बता दे और दूसरों को न बतावे। फिर परीक्षा में वे ही प्रश्न सभी से पूछे और उस एक को पास व दूसरों को फेल कर दे तो क्या उसे ‘‘बेईमान परीक्षक’’नहीं कहा जायेगा? इस प्रकार की परीक्षा लेकर खुदा ने आदम को ‘‘पास’’ व फरिश्तों को ‘‘फेल’’कर दिया। क्या यह खुदा की ईमानदारी का सबूत था?

HADEES : MUHAMMAD HAS THE LARGEST FOLLOWING ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT

MUHAMMAD HAS THE LARGEST FOLLOWING ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT

Muhammad tells us that he �will have the greatest following on the Day of Resurrection� (283).  And understandably so, for the hellfire is on his side.  The hellfire will be busy consuming the opponents of Muhammad, and there will be no one left for Paradise to receive except the Muslims.

Muhammad tells us: �He who amongst the community of Jews and Christians hears about me, but does not affirm his belief in that with which I have been sent and dies in this state of disbelief, he shall be but one of the denizens of Hell-Fire� (284).  The Jews and Christians will suffer in hell not only for their own unbelief in Muhammad, they will also act as proxies for any Muslims who happen to be sent there.  �There would come people amongst the Muslim on the Day of Resurrection with as heavy sins as a mountain, and Allah would forgive them and he would place in their stead the Jews and the Christians,� Muhammad tells us (6668).  This would also, incidentally, solve the problem of space in heaven: �Space in paradise would be provided by Christians and Jews being thrown into Hell-Fire,� the translator tells us (note 2967).

Another important segment of the infernal population is made up of women.  Muhammad says, �O womenfolk . . . I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell.� When a woman asks him why it should be so, Muhammad tells her: �You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses.  I have seen none [like them] lacking in common sense and failing in religion but robbing the wisdom of the wise.� The �proof of the lack of common sense� in them is the fact that in Allah�s law promulgated by Muhammad himself, �the evidence of two women is equal to one man�; and the proof of their failing in religion, as he tells them, is that �you spend some nights and days in which you do not offer prayer and in the month of RamzAn you do not observe fast� (142).  Women sometimes abstained from voluntary fasts because the Prophet had commanded that it was more meritorious for them to do their duty by their husbands than to fast.  �Aisha, the Prophet�s wife, did not observe some fasts �due to the regards for the Apostle of Allah� (2550).  But, it seems, the very merit of women turns into its opposite: predestined damnation

कुरान समीक्षा : खुदा बिना कारण रोजी कम या ज्यादा करता है

खुदा बिना कारण रोजी कम या ज्यादा करता है

इस आयत के होते हुए खुदा को मुन्सिफ अर्थात् न्यायकत्र्ता साबित करें।

देखिये कुरान में कहा गया है कि-

अल्लाहु यब्सुतुर्रिज-क लिमंय्यशाउ…………।।

(कुरान मजीद पारा २० सूरा अकंबूत रूकू ६ आयत ६२)

अल्लाह ही अपने बन्दों में से जिसको चाहे रोजी देता है और जिसको चाहे नपी तुली कर देता है और जिससे चाहे छीन भी लेता है बेशक! अल्लाह हर चीज से जानकार है।

व मा अर्सल्ना मिर्रसूलिन् इल्ला…………..।।

(कुरान मजीद पारा १३ सूरा इब्राहीम रूकू १ आयत ४)

खुदा जिसको चाहता है भटकाता है और जिसे चाहता है राह दिखा देता है।

समीक्षा

खुदा का हर काम किसी न किसी आधार पर होता है। बिना कारण किसी को ज्यादा या कम देना, किसी को सजा या इनाम दे तो यह खुदा को बे-इन्साफ साबित करता है। तो जब खुदा ही बेइन्साफी करेगा तो दुनियां में उसकी देखा-देखी बेइन्साफी व धांधलेबाजी क्यों न चलेगी?

कुरान की यह आयत खुदा को दोषी स्वेच्छाचारी अन्यायी घोषित करती है। यदि ऐसा ही कोई मजिस्ट्रेट यहाँ भी करने लगे तो उसे क्या कहा जावेगा? वही खुदा के बारे में भी समझ लेवें। उसका तबादला तुरन्त दूसरी जगह करा दिया जावेगा।

Want to embrace Hinduism if given a chance, says Muslim woman attacked with acid after husband deserts her

Want to embrace Hinduism if given a chance, says Muslim woman attacked with acid after husband deserts her

Her mother-in-law allegedly asked her to not “show her face” because Matlub had already given her triple talaq over phone, which Rehana says never occurred. “

Rehana Raza

If given a chance, Rehana Raza says she wants to give up Islam and embrace Hinduism.

The Uttar Pradesh resident became the latest poster woman of triple talaq after allegedly being divorced over the phone by her husband and then attacked with acid by her in-laws. Now, she told Mail Today, she wants to change her religious stripes from green to saffron.

“Hindu law at least reaffirms the right of consensus a woman should have in marriage and gives a woman a say. That’s something Islam lacks, paving the way for triple talaq,” Rehana said in a telephonic interview.

‘DON’T SHOW YOUR FACE TO US’

Thousands of Muslim women from across India have raised their voices against the Sharia law custom that allows men to split up with their wives by saying “talaq” thrice. The instant divorce practice has been barred by more than 20 Muslim countries including Pakistan, Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia. “A common law defends numerous Hindu women who need emotional and financial support after getting deserted. I have suffered because of triple talaq, despite my family’s revered status in society,” Rehana said.

A five-judge constitution bench will sit during the Supreme Court’s summer vacation in May to examine a batch of petitions challenging Islamic practices such as triple talaq and polygamy after women complained of being divorced on Facebook and WhatsApp. Rehana says she was attacked with acid by her in-laws on April 14 at their house in Neoria town of Pilibhit district. The torture did not surprise the victim, who alleges that her husband started beating her within days of their wedding after the couple moved to the United States in 1999.

“He brought me and my son back to India in 2011 when my mother passed away but he soon left us behind, claiming he had found a job in New Zealand. I had no choice but to turn to my in-laws in Pilibhit who also shunned me,” Rehana told Mail Today.

‘MODI’S ATTACK ON TRIPLE TALAQ IS GENUINE’

Her mother-in-law allegedly asked her to not “show her face” because Matlub had already given her triple talaq over phone, which Rehana says never occurred. “I had approached them after the Allahabad high court order that termed the practice of triple talaq as unconstitutional which violates the rights of Muslim women. But instead I have seen days when my son and I have lived without food and electricity,” said Rehana, who has now been assured support by women and child development minister Maneka Gandhi.

The government told the Supreme Court last year that triple talaq violates the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution and said it does not form a part of the “essential religious practices” in Islam. “Given how Rehana has endured for years at her in-laws’ house, Maneka Gandhi has taken up the issue with the superintendent of police in Pilibhit to expedite the case,” a ministry official told Mail Today.

Rehana’s 14-year-old son was not around on April 14 when she claims her brother-in-law Maqbool Hussain, sisters-in-law Parveen and Shakeela started beating her and threw acid on her. Despite her narrow escape after spotting the bottle of acid, she suffered burns on her back and marks on her arms, neck and feet.

Terming the Narendra Modi government’s bid to attack triple talaq “genuine”, Rehana also said, “Given how our government has vouched for a common law, the hype around triple talaq is important to make people think about the atrocities inflicted on women.” The trauma has not ended for Rehana as she points out that her son has grown quiet over time. “I insisted for a roof at my in-laws’ house but I was thrown out every other day. When we refused to budge, my husband called my teenage son, and told him that we should vacate the house or he would get him jailed,” alleged Rehana. “Even now, I am being asked to leave the hospital by the police, who refuse get a warrant otherwise. The harassment has not ended for me.”

कुरान समीक्षा : खुदा बहुत ऊँचा है

खुदा बहुत ऊँचा है

खुदा दिन में तथा रात में किस दिशा में बहुत ऊंचाई पर रहता है सप्रमाण यह स्पष्ट किया जावे?

देखिये कुरान में कहा गया है कि-

फ-त- आलल्-लाहुल-मालिकुल्………….।।

(कुरान मजीद पारा १८ सूरा मुअ्मिनून रूकू ६ आयत ११६)

जो खुदा सच्चा बादशाह बहुत ऊँचा है। उसके सिवाय कोई पूजित नहीं, वही बड़े तख्त का मालिक है।

समीक्षा

जमीन हर समय घूमती रहती है दोपहर को जो तारे हमारे ऊपर होते हैं वे शाम को हट जाते हैं और रात को वे विपरीत दिशा में होते है। अतः स्पष्ट किया जावे कि ऊपर से तात्पर्य किस दिशा से है खुदा जब ऊपर रहता है तो यहाँ पर तथा नीचे की दिशा में वह नहीं रहता है यह स्पष्ट है, न वह हाजिर नाजिर अर्थात् सर्वव्यापक ही है।

Jakarta: A couple was given between 23 to 25 lashes each in public, with a cane for having sex before marriage in Indonesia.  The woman was robed in white, had her face covered and then made to kneel on a stage where she was punished in front of a crowd.

The punishment was in accordance with the Sharia law, which forbids having sex outside of wedlock and punishes all offenders publicly.

According to a report in Daily Mail, the woman one among the four couples who were punished for the same crime. The sentence was carried out in Banda Aceh in Sumatra island, where the Sharia law is a part of the official legal system. The 25 lashes given to her, is the punishment for women who have sex before marriage.

The man was dressed in white too while he was being punished, but he was allowed to stand through it.

The Sharia law code states that the cane used for punishing the accused must be no thicker than the width of a small finger. As per the code, the punishment varies with the offence. Thieves have one hand removed, while adulterers are pelted with stones and blasphemers are whipped.
