The Era of Fitnas
Narrated Hudhaifa Ibn Al-Yaman (Radi Allah u Anhuma):
The people used to ask Rasoolullah (Sall Allah u Alaihi wa Sallam) about the good but I used to ask him about the evil lest the evil should overtake me.
So I said: O Allah’s Prophet! We were living in ignorance and in an (extremely) evil era, then Allah brought to us this good (Islam); will there be any evil after this good?
He said: Yes
I said: will there be any good after that evil?
He replied: Yes, but it will be tainted
I asked: What will be its taint?
He replied: (There will be) some people who will guide others not according to my tradition?
You will approve of some of their deeds and disapprove of some others.
I asked: Will there be any evil after that good?
He said: (a time will come when some) people will invite (towards the wrong path) as if they are standing on the doors of hell and inviting (people) to enter it. They will throw into it all such persons who will accept their invitation (that is, he who obeys them will certainly go to hell).
Hudhaifa (Radi Allah u Anh) said: O messenger of Allah will you let me know something about their attributes and symbols?
Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said: They will be from amongst our nation and will speak in our language.
Hudhaifa (Radi Allah u Anh): said: what should I do, if I survive up to that moment? What is your order for me (in this regard)?
Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said: Stick to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen and its Imam (Leader).
Hudhaifa (Radi Allah u Anh) asked: What if there is neither Jamaah nor their Imam? (What should I do then)?
Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) replied: Keep yourself away from all sects, even if you have to live upon roots of trees and you shall have to remain in this state till your death reaches you.
(Saheeh Bukhari Kitab ul Fitan & Saheeh Muslim Kitab ul Imaarah)
In a hadith narrated in Ibn Majah the words are:
You must adhere to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen and its Imam.
(Ibn Majah Vol.2 pg.1317 Sanad: Saheeh)
Thus, it is imperative for us to adhere to Jamaat ul Muslimeen and it’s Imam according to the Sunnah and the Sunnah upon which unity can be achieved is Jamaat ul Muslimeen- not just for names sake but for the Aqaid, practices and every aspect of Islam, to strictly follow the Quran and Sunnah and not vain desires either of their own or of those they hold in respect. It should be noted in the above hadith that any group other than the ONE JAMAAT UL MUSLIMEEN has been declared a SECT and FIRQA destined to the fire of hell.
Alhamdulillah the true Jamaat ul Muslimeen is ONE and the Imam of this ONE TRUE JAMAAT UL MUSLIMEEN WORLD WIDE IS ONLY MUHAMMAD ISHTIAQ SAHAB.
“(O prophet!) No, by your Lord, they are not believers until they make you their judge in the disputes that break out between them and then do not resist what you decide and submit themselves [to you] completely.” (Surah An-Nisa: 65)
May Allah keep us all on the right path. Aameen.
1.Jamaat ul Muslimeen has never and shall never believe in the intercession (waseela) of the righteous people before us, what they did shall benefit them, they cannot help us in any way, ONLY ALLAH ALONE IS THE ONE WHOSE HELP IS SOUGHT BY US. Going to the graves of the righteous and asking for their help or intercession is SHIRK. Kindly, do not believe in these baseless allegations against Ameer and Muslimeen.
2. There is NO PROOF WHATSOEVER FOR ESTABLISHING A NEW JAMAAT UL MUSLIMEEN IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ONE JAMAAT UL MUSLIMEEN, ANY NEW AMEER OF ANY NEW JAMAAT UL MUSLIMEEN HAS BEEN DECLARED WAJIB UL QATL BY RASOOLULLAH SALL ALLAHU ALAIHI WA SALLAM IN THE HADITH OF SAHEEH BUKHARI AND SAHEEH MUSLIM.
3. We follow our Ameer in matters of administration and within the frame of Quran and Saheeh Ahaadeeth only.
Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said:
Listening and obeying (the Ameer’s order) is compulsory on a Muslim whether he likes it or dislikes it with the condition that he isn’t ordered to commit a sin.
(Saheeh Bukhari Kitab ul Ahkaam Vol. 9 pg 78 and Saheeh Muslim Kitab ul Imaarah Vol. 2 pg 131)
If a slave who doesn’t have a nose (such a slave) is appointed Ameer over you and he leads you according to the Book of Allah then listen and obey (to his orders).
(Saheeh Muslim Kitab ul Imaarah Vol. 2 pg 131)
Thus Jamaat ul Muslimeen obeys the command of the Ameer within the radius of the Quran and Sunnah and no command against these two is ever obeyed Alhamdulillah. But still people who follow their own peculiar mindsets keep on leveling baseless accusations against the Ameer and Muslimeen, we can only try to clarify our position but some people will never be satisfied since they have prejudged with prejudice all those who are with Jamaat ul Muslimeen and it’s Imam.
Obeying the Ameer is unlike the Taqleed of the Aimma which is adhered to even if clear proofs from the Quran and Hadith are shown against the fatwa of the Imam.
Secondly, the Ameer is only obeyed till he his alive and not after death, but the Aimma are still being obeyed without a question even though they have passed away centuries ago.
May Allah shower His Mercy upon the Aimma.
Thus there is no comparison between the Taqleed of Aimma and the obedience of Ameer.
May Allah protect us from the Fitna of the NEO KHAWARIJ. AAMEEN!
