A disturbing trend is on the rise in the Ummah of Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) and every decent human being should be concerned.
The issue is of the Takfeerees and their reprisals against the Sufees or in the context of India/Pakistan the Barlwees (to be specific).
I read some of the articles of Takfeeres and listened to their Interviews on Pakistani media and they are actually justifying their killing of “Mulana Safaraz Naeemi” because they believe that he was involved in Shirk, on some English internet sites and forums they are openly celebrating the death of a “Mushrik”!
I came across someone and the thought patterns truly shocked me, this individual believed that there are only two groups in the world:
1) Hizbullah (which is him and those who agree with him)
2) Hizbush-Shaytaan (those who disagree with him) thus liable to be KILLED! Whoever it is…
What was truly disturbing is that this person thought that ANYONE working for the Pakistani Government is part of Hizbush-Shaytaan and resisting the implementation of Shariah thus their blood is HALAL and they can be killed in the most gruesome manner.
And he believed that anyone who doesn’t think like him has been deprived from guidance of Allah (SWT).
Another important point this person made was that he thought that there are NO ULAMA left in the world and he “literally applied” the Hadeeth of Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) which predicts that Ulama will pass away and won’t be replaced to our times e.g. this person thought that all the “good” Ulama have died and the one left behind are all “bad” and sellouts their unfit to give rulings or be referred to in case of queries.
Person also thought that they DON’T NEED to refer to any Ulama as they already know what they need to know. This is also evident in the Interview of Muslim Khan (spokesman for Pakistani Taliban) when he is constantly referred to Mufti Taqi Usmani and he just ignores and says “There are no Ulama left in this world”
How did some people in the Ummah develop such Khawarij/Takfiri tendencies, venom and hatred which drives them to KILL people and during the murder if innocent children die (in a suicide bomb) they believe that such casualties are justified, understandable and overlooked by Allah (SWT)?
I don’t believe that it is correct to label these people as Deobandees or Wahabees or even Salafees because a vast majority of people adhering to these groups/schools DON’T ASCRIBE to or CONDONE these actions and are equally appalled and disgusted by them. Destroying graves & shrines is one thing but actually killing people is an entirely different matter.
How did we get here from the teachings of a Nabi who was sent as Rahma (Mercy) to mankind to cutting throats of people who we disagree with?
This post may sound confusing and all over the place and that because it is! I just don’t understand where these people are getting their ideas from?
