A polite rebuttal of Javed Ahmad Ghamidi's alliance with Maulana Waheeduddin and his attack on Maulana Maudoodi

By scholar Salim Mansur Khalid [Lahore]
Plus a note on ISNA.

Summary by Dr. Kaukab Siddiqiue.

Ghamidi sahib is a Pakistani scholar of repute who is living in America. He has been sniping at the writings of Maulana Maudoodi off and on for several years.

Ghamidi sahib found good company in Maulana Waheeduddin Khan, an Indian scholar, who was very close to the Indian government. Waheeduddin has been popular with pro-West Urdu speaking immigrants in Europe and America.

Waheeduddin talked the usual talk in support of beliefs that opposition to western powers is not legitimate because Islam is a religion of peace. and that fighting to liberate Palestine does not make sense because Zionist Jews have a legitimate right to Palestine.

When Waheeduddin died on April 21, 2021, his supporters hailed his achievements loudly.

Ghamidi sahib used the occasion to project his own image as an important scholar in the line of Waheeduddin. In the ;process of hailing the achievements of Waheeduddin, Javed Ghamidi openly came out against the work of Maulana Maudoodi.

Prof. Salim Khalid, who writes for the scholarly Urdu language magazine Tarjumanul Qur'an has answered Ghamidi sahib in the June issue of the ;paper and also brought out significant information about Maulana Waheeduddin.
The founder of this magazine was Maulana Maudoodi himself.

I have summarized the viewpoint of both sides:
Khalid sahib noted that Ghamidi sahib and his supporters have been carrying out haphazard criticism of Maulana Maudoodi and Jamaate Islami for years but they were never answered. Hence the latest attack by Ghamidi sahib is totally unprovoked.

Ghamidi sahib claims that all of Maudoodi's work was political interpretation which can be seen in Maudoodi's entire commentary on the Qur'an and in his work on hadith. Then Ghamidi sahib urges his audience to read Maulana Waheeduddin's book "Mistake of interpretation" which is a work of masterly criticism of Maudoodi.

Ghamidi sahib's attempt to limit Maulana Maudoodi to political aspects of Islam was issued on social media from America and was picked up by Ghamidi' sahib's support publications in Pakistan. That's how they reached Prof. Mansur Khalid. For Ghamidi sahib, Maulana Maudoodi's writings were his personal opinions to which he gave a political coloring.

In his rebuttal Khalid notes that Maulana Maudoodi saw Islam as a complete way of life and did not ever present Islam as only an attempt to set up an Islamic government. Maudoodi's viewpoint can be seen in his commentary on section 4 of the Constitution of Jamaate Islam: These are its words:

" Implementation of the Islamic Deen is not about implementation of any one aspect of it but all of it, be it personal life or social life, be it prayers, fasting, Hajj or zakat, or be it economics, social fabric, culture or politics. Nothing in Islam is unnecessary. All of Islam is necessary. A true believer's task is to strive to implement all of it without trying to break it into bits and pieces. Whatever is doable in personal life should be done and whatever requires collective effort should be attempted on a collective level."

Prof Khalid writes that Maudoodi did not think in terms of "sufi Islam" or "political Islam" but all of Islam. He considered fragmentation of religion as belonging to the age of ignorance.

Mansur Khalid comments on attempts in the west to label opponents as extremists, savages and fanatics, particularly after 9.11.

Maulana Waheeduddin is dear to the westerners and their supporters in the east because of his label of "political Islam" for these opponents.

Ghamidi sahib's special friend Maulana Waheeduddin was invited to ISNA's convention on September 6, 2015. When ISNA was questioned about this choice, the organizers stated that Waheeduddin was the choice of the US State Department which had asked for him to be invited to the ISNA convention.

Conclusion by Kaukab Siddique: ISNA is well known in America for its pro-government policies for decades. It still attracts young people who do not know of ISNA's ties to the regime in Washington.



Ji report
Imran Regime has followed failed policies of previous regimes.
by Qaiser Sharif.

LAHORE- JUNE 3: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has said the inflation rate and unemployment expose the government claims about the improvement of economy.

"The PTI is fudging figures only to gain political advantages," he said while addressing a meeting of the JI Majlise Aamla (Executive Council) here on Thursday.

Political situation, economy, local government polls, issues of Palestine, Kashmir and Afghanistan and organizational matter came under discussion during the proceedings which continued for more than six hours.

Sirajul Haq said the government lied to the masses during past three years, delivering nothing at internal and external fronts. It failed the people expectations on Kashmir cause and betrayed the masses of the held area. He said the bad governance and lack of vision in policy making were trademarks of the government. He said reshuffling in bureaucracy and political crises appeared as permanent features in Punjab, creating problems for 60 percent of country's population. He said the PTI had not only continued the policies of former government during past three years, it broke the records of mismanagement and poor performance in many fields. He said the ruling party protected the status quo, proving itself the agents of feudal lords and imperialists.

The JI chief said the masses were fed up from the three so-called mainstream political parties and wanted real change. He said had the true democratic system based on the principles of Islam came into effect in Pakistan after its creation, the country would have been ranked among the developed nations today. But, he regretted the looters deprived the masses and damaged the institution for years. He said only capable and honest people could lead the country towards success.

Targeted Zionist attacks on Media Critics.
by Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

Rabbi Shmuley is the leader of Boteach's World Values Network, a staunch Zionist organization. Anytime celebrities or any public figure speaks out against Zionism they sound the alarm. According to the article, Boteach's mission is "to disseminate universal Jewish values in politics, culture, and media, making the Jewish people a light unto the nations." Sounds like a Zionist message.

Recently, Rabbi Shmuley targeted the Haddids: Gigi and Bella (fashion models), and Dua Lipa (British pop star). The Hadids are Palestinians and Dua Lipa's family are from Kosovo, Albania. All three are Muslim and have been outspoken against the Israeli land-grab in Occupied Palestine.

The Hadids are mega social media influencers, in particular, which is why Rabbi Shmuley took out an expensive one-page ad in the NY Times, on May 22nd, accusing all three starlets of anti-Semitism. On Boteach's website is a photo of all three women describing them as "an unholy trinity of anti-Semitic bile to demonize the Jewish people."

Dua Lipa, who is also dating Anwar Hadid, Gigi and Bella's younger brother, said, "This is the price you pay for defending Palestinian human rights against an Israeli government whose actions in Palestine both Human Right Watch and the Israeli human rights group B'Tselem accuse of persecution and discrimination."

Gigi Hadid responded to anti-Semitism claims by stating she wants equal rights for Palestinians. Her sister, Bella, has attended public demonstrations against Israeli occupation in Palestine. There were rumors that Bella's Christian Dior contract but, amid a backlash, Dior refuted the claims saying that her contract is still in effect.

On June 4th, I saw a digital billboard in a Manhattan, New York neighborhood that read: "Here's an idea: Let's ask everyone who is wondering if antisemitism is real to wear a yarmulke for a week and then report back." According to, this message was created by JewBelong. Archie Gottesman and Staci Stuart are the two women founders who say that the main goal of this organization is to be supportive of those Jews who don't feel that they belong, as well as help them and non-Jews see the joys of Judaism.

This message, as well as numerous interviews and surveys about so-called anti-Semitism, promote Zionist victimhood. With the help of the Zionist-controlled mainstream media, it is designed to blind-side people and distract them from the Israeli land grabbing and human trafficking going on in Occupied Palestine.

But, social media has given people a vehicle to reveal the individual experiences that the mainstream media has always covered up. Influencers have mastered building a huge list of followers and introducing the latest trends to them. Many Influencers, such as the Hadids, are teenagers or in their early twenties. The enterprising Influencers have established themselves either as marketing consultants or teach entrepreneurs how to use social media to grow their client list.

Although they still have their newspapers, magazines, television stations, and billboards, the Zionist-controlled mainstream media is losing a significant battle with social media.

 Invitation to Think

Israel's power on global media: Reality or illusion?

Five years on, I admit that the University of Leeds professor was right! He said my advice to you and those who newly completed Ph.D.s in the fields of media, communications and politics is simple: "Never touch Israel until you get a decent job and are considerably settled-down in academia."

Over the years, even well-established and known figures in the media and political circles have paid the price for opening up about the Israeli government's aggressive policies.

Caution: You are reporting on Israel so check the language.

The Gaza case
Look at the global media reporting of the current episode of the Israeli aggression against Gaza. Though, it has been translated as Israel's right to "self-defense" against an "act of terror."

Even the liberal media, through its editorials, news reports, comment and opinion pieces, downplayed Israeli terror in Gaza.

Famous human rights activist Malcolm-X once famously said "the media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses."

The British press' skillful use of jargons and phrases such as "clash," "violence," "unrest," "Palestinian militants," "Hamas operators," "worst religious unrest," "security move," "provocations by Muslims," "restore order" and "rioting of thousands of worshipers" to indicate that Israel is a victim and in a defensive mode, making it seem as if Muslims' threatening behavior has caused Israel to take protective measures.

In brief, these phrases remind us of a famous saying by British novelist George Orwell: "Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."

Late journalist Robert Fisk once discussed the media's use of political language in detail, for instance, Israel uses "neighborhood" instead of "colony" to give the impression that Palestinians are living here peacefully.

Global media reporting of the recent Israeli aggression in Al-Aqsa, the following airstrikes and full-scale military attack on Gaza disappoints me in the same manner as it would upset anyone who believes in press freedom and considers the media to be the fifth important pillar of society.

Anyone who is following the Israel-Palestine conflict, whether it be through live streams, TV, or reading commentaries and news in mainstream newspapers and magazines, ask yourself a simple question: Is the media free?

It's pretty a simple question that doesn't necessitate employing a Ph.D. researcher or consulting a media expert to understand how sections of the global media, especially the western media, depict the Israeli aggression in a way that frames it as "Israelis right to defend themselves" against an "act of terror."

But if any section of the media thinks to exercise freedom then it will simply face destruction. Recall, the most recent Israeli bombing of media offices that sent a strong message to journalists, reminding them to stay "silent."

Get ready for consequences
There is a long list of top-ranking journalists and prominent politicians in Britain, America and Europe who have been forced to apologize for criticizing Israel.
Many have lost their top jobs a while others end up in vain. That's a fact, not an illusion.

In Britain, the average person will remember the story of Tony Blair's wife Cherie Blair being forced to apologize in the middle of the night because she accepted that "Palestinian suicide bombers may be driven by a lack of hope about their future."

Of course, suicide bombing is condemnable but at the same time, it is important to note that it is a global phenomenon that is not only limited to the Palestinians in the occupied lands. The best is to read Robert A. Pape's book "Dying to Win: The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism."

In British politics, prominent British politician Jeremy Corbyn is yet another example of somebody who has been labeled an "anti-Semite" for challenging Israeli policies, with his political career ending in vain.

On the BBC's Hardtalk, former U.K. parliamentarian George Galloway disclosed inequalities in the media reporting on the Israel-Palestine issue and told journalist Stephen Sackur how "Andrew Gilligan actually told the truth and he got sacked. The man who backed him Greg Dyke, the director-general of the BBC stood by his man and got sacked. Gavin Davis stood by his DG and got sacked, Piers Morgan in the Mirror got sacked, I got sacked." This list goes on and on...

For a long time now, progressive voices among American journalists, academics and politicians have been facing hostilities for exposing the Israeli government's illegal and inhumane policies in Palestine.

Palestinian citizens of Israel were met with a strong Israeli police response during a protest against Israeli actions in Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, occupied Palestine, May 9, 2021

Palestinian citizens of Israel were met with a strong Israeli police response during a protest against Israeli actions in Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, occupied Palestine, May 9, 2021.

The message is simple, anyone who dares challenge Israeli's deceit and disinformation relating to the Israeli government's actions in Gaza, its raids on Al-Aqsa Mosque, or continuous imprisonment of millions of people will face the wrath of those in power, even if the critics are of the Jewish faith.

White House reporter Helen Thomas told a rabbi that "Jews should get the hell out of Palestine." She was forced to resign for this anti-Israel comment. Professor Steven Salaita lost his job at the University of Illinois mainly because of his criticism of Israel's bombardment in Gaza.

I hope you understand now why you are being presented one-sided coverage of the Israel-Palestine issue in the mainstream media, or even arguably on controlled social media. That's how our modern world works, if you have power and wealth, you control the means of communication.

*Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim*
'Assalaamualaykum Wa Rahmatuallahi Wa Barakatahu'.

*Food & Eating Habits According to the Sunnah*
Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah's~{Rahimhullah}

Comprehensive notes covering the most important qualities of the Prophet (Sallallaahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) in regards to food & drink.
'It is sufficient for the son of Adam to eat a few mouthfuls, to keep him going...
If he must do that (fill his stomach), then let him fill one third with food, one third with drink and one third with air.
  1. When he put his hand in the food,
    *PROPHET* ﷺ~would say...
    " Bismillah (with the Name of Allaah),'' and he told people to say this when eating. he said, "When any one of you eats... let him mention the name of Allah.
    If he forgets to mention the name of
    Allah at the beginning, let him say...
    'Bismillahi fee Awwalihi wa Aakhirihi,'
    (with the name of Allah, at it's beginning and at its end)."
  2. The correct view is that it is obligatory to mention the name of Allah
    (say 'Bismillah') when eating.
    { The Ahaadeeth which state this are Sahih (Authentic) and are clear, with no contradictions in them.}
  3. When he raised the food to his mouth,
    *PROPHET* ﷺ would say...
    "Al-hamdu lillaahi hamdan katheeran tayyiban mubaarakan feehi, ghayra [makfiyyin wa laa] muwadda'in, wa laa mustaghnan 'anhu Rabbanaa 'azza wa jall.
    "All praise is to Allah, praise in abundance, good and blessed.
    It cannot [be compensated for, nor can it] be left, nor can it be done without, our Lord. [3]
  4. he never criticized food at all.
    If he liked it, he would eat it, and if he did not like it, he would leave it and not say anything. [4]
    or he would say...
    "I do not feel like eating this." [5]
  5. Sometimes he would praise the food, as when he asked his family for food, and they said,
    "We have nothing but vinegar." he asked for it and started to eat it, saying...
    " What good food is Vinegar." [6]
  6. he used to talk whilst he was eating, as is seen from the report quoted above about vinegar.
    And he said to his stepson,
    'Umar Ibn Abee Salamah (Radiyallahu 'Anhu) when he was eating with him...
    "Say Bismillah and eat from that which is in front of you in the dish.'' [7]
  7. He would repeatedly urge his guests to eat, as generous hosts do, and as is seen in the hadeeth of , [Abu Hurayrah (Radiyallahu 'Anhu), related by al-Bukharee..] about the story of drinking milk, where he repeatedly said to him...
    "Drink," and he kept telling him to drink until he (the guest) said...
    "By the One Who sent you with the truth,
    I have no more room for it " ! [8]
  8. When he ate with others, he would not leave until he had made Du'a (supplication) for them. he made Du'a in the house of 'Abdullaah Ibn Bishr,(Allah be pleased with him) and said...
    " O Allah, bless for them that which
    You have provided for them, forgive them and have mercy on them." [9]
  9. he commanded people to eat with their right hands and forbade them to eat with their left hands.
    *PROPHET* ﷺsaid...
    " The Shaytan eats with his left hand and drinks with his left hand." [10]
    Note: This implies that eating with the left hand is 'Haram' (unlawful), and this is the correct view, because the one who eats with his left hand is either a Shaytan (Devil), or he is imitating the Shaytan.
    It was also reported in an authentic 'Hadeeth' that he told a man who was eating with his left hand in his presence...
    " Eat with your right hand ! "
    The man said, "I cannot."
    *PROPHET* ﷺ said...
    " May you never be able to." and the man never lifted his right hand to his mouth after that... !
  10. he commanded those who complained that they never felt full to eat together and not separately, and to mention the name of Allah (say 'Bismillah') over the food so that
    He might bless it for them. [12]
  11. It was also reported that he said...
    " I do not eat reclining." [13]
  12. : he used to eat using the first three (3) fingers (of his right hand), which is the best way of eating .. !
    (Sallallaahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam)

  1. The Prophet
    used to know what he was eating.
  2. he used to eat whatever was good for him.
  3. he used to eat enough to keep him going,
    but no so much as to make him fat.
    Ibn 'Umar [Allah be pleased with him] related that ..
    *PROPHET* ﷺ said...
    "The believer eats in one stomach
    whilst the disbeliever eats in seven !" [14]
  4. He taught his 'Ummah' something to protect
    them from diseases caused by eating and drinking.
    *PROPHET* ﷺ~said..
    "The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach.
It is sufficient for the son of Adam to eat a few mouthfuls, to keep him going.
If he must do that (fill his stomach), then let him fill one third with food,
one third with drink and one third with air." [15]
~My 'Salaams' to all ~
Y a s m i n.
*Never Despair Of The Mercy Of Allah
' Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days,
whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone.

Hadith [From Qur'an and Hadith group]

Be Humble

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) passed by some children and greeted them (by saying As-salamu 'alaikum to them). Then he said: The Prophet (PBUH) used to do the same. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

To greet (saying As-salamu 'alaikum) small children is an excellent expression of humbleness. Similarly, a believer is under obligation to greet his wife and children while entering his home, and this will be a sign of his humbleness as well. Besides, he is also supposed to greet his subordinates, servants and other lowly people. Escape from it is an indication of pride and arrogance and shows a deviation from the practice of the Prophet (PBUH) which is enough to incur the displeasure of Allah.
