‘What really matters in the sight of God’: Maulana Maududi

‘What really matters in the sight of God’: Maulana Maududi

Maulana Saiyad Abul Aala Maududi, rahamtullah alahi, was a great scholar of Al Qur’an Al Majeed, Ahadeese Muqaddasat, and in fact, that of Islam.

In his famous tafseer,’Tafheemul Qur’an’, translated into English by Zafar Ishaq Ansari, as ‘TOWARDS UNDERSTANDING THE QUR’AN‘, he writes:
‘Innallazeen ‘Aamanoo Wa Allaazeen Haadoo Wa An-Nasaaraa Wa As-Saabi’een Man ‘Aaman Billaahi Wa Al-Yawmi Al-’Aakhiri Wa `Amil Saalihaan Falahum ‘Ajruhum `Ind Rabbihim Wa Laa Khawfun `Alaihim Wa Laa Hum Yahzanoon’
‘Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in Allāh and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
–Al Qur’an Al Kareem: 2Al-Baqarah: 62
‘The aim of the verse is merely to repudiate the illusion cherished by the Jews that, by virtue of their being Jews, they have a monopoly of salvation. They had long entertained the notion that a special and exclusive relationship existed between them and God. They thought, therefore, that all who belonged to their group were predestined to salvation regardless of their beliefs and actions, whereas all non Jews were predestined to serve as fodder for hell fire.

To clarify this misgiving the Jews are told that what really matters in the sight of God is true faith and good deeds RATHER THAN FORMAL AFFILIATION WITH A CERTAIN RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY. Whoever has true faith and good deeds to his credit is BOUND TO RECIEVE his reward, since God will judge people on the basis of merit rather on the grounds that a man’s name happens to be listed in the world as a member of one religious community or other.’
–‘TOWARDS UNDERSTANDING THE QUR’AN’: Maulana Saiyad Abul Aala Maududi

The principle described in the Aayate Kareema, and explained by Maulana Saiyad Abul Aala Maududi, rahamtullah alahi, is quite clear:

We all whether Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Jews, or of any other religious system of life, cherish this illusion to this or that extent.
It is one of the principle faults of us so called religious persons.
We don’t believe, and we don’t want to believe that another path of salvation is also possible there.
Therefore, this magnanimous Aayat of Al Qur’an Al Majeed, in fact does not repudiate the illusion cherished by the Jews only.
It repudiates the illusion cherished by all of us so called religious persons whether Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Jews, or of any other religious system of life, who cherish this illusion to this or that extent.

It declares the salvation for all the persons whether Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Jews, or of any other religious system of life, if one ‘believes in Allah and the Last Day, and PERFORMS GOOD DEEDS, he will have his reward with his Lord and he will have no cause for fear and grief.’

All the morons who are fighting dirty with this principle, in the forums, ABC, Jack, Leo, HKR, Shul, AAAA, Double AAAA, Triple AAAA, 99xAAAA, etc. are, therefore absolutely wrong.

Why did Islam face a counter revolution at Karbala?: DSM Satyarthi

Why did Islam face a counter revolution at Karbala?: DSM Satyarthi

I never compromised with the persons, who believe that the present radical, communal and terrorist Islam, is the TRUE ISLAM.
Wafa Sultan does not believe it.

She believes that the PRESENT radical, communal and terrorist Islam, is the TRUE ISLAM:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wafa_Sultan#Reli…
I, every now and then, have to face some bright young sophisticated Muslim ladies, married and unmarried both, who worship the ground, Wafa Sultan walks on.
http://www.copts-united.com/Copts_United_N/TV…

My present active associate, Khadeejah Muhammad, is also one of such bright young sophisticated Muslim ladies.

I haven’t met any Muslim male, till now, who follow Wafa Sultan:
http://www.ncpa.info/news/view_newsdetails.as…
Yet, the large number of the bright young sophisticated Muslim ladies, married and unmarried both, who worship the ground, Wafa Sultan walks on; is too much to be neglected.
They are MORE WAFA SULTAN THAN EVEN WAFA SULTAN is.
My present active associate, Khadeejah Muhammad, is not the leader of such bright young sophisticated Muslim ladies.
But, she REPRESENTS THEM brilliantly.

I remember, in one of her posts, Khadeejah Muhammad, had asked me what the TRUE ISLAM is.
I refer her, and the persons who want my answer to the question, to a link:
http://www.topix.com/forum/world/pakistan/TS7…
Here, they can find my thread:
‘Islam according to Qur’an and Maulana Maududi rahamatullh alaihi’
I think, it’s the TRUE ISLAM.
It’s right there, in Al Qur’an Al Kareem and Ahaith e Muqaddasaat.

However, as I have repeatedly said in my 8138 posts till now, Islam has gone through a counter revolution at Karbala:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karbala
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Karbal…

The Sunnis and the Shiaas differ very much in the matter, even somewhat altogether:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Karbal…
Yet, it’s not the question under discussion here.
The question under discussion here, is WHY DID IT HAPPEN?
In my opinion, it happened, because unfortunately, Huzoor(SAW) did not live to complete his GREAT HISTORIC ISLAMIC REVOLUTION.
Khulfae Raashideen(RA) tried their best to complete it, yet we can’t deny that they lacked the authority and ingenuity, both; Huzoor(SAW) enjoyed in his(S) lifetime.
