    A (true) Muslim is a person who does not harm another Muslim with his tongue or with his hands and Muhajir is he who leaves that which Allah has forbidden.

    Salam, I actually replied to this thread several times with a link to the book but apparently it was not accepted (?) by the moderators. Also, I don't have permission to access your profile page, so I can't PM you.

    How/where should I post the book? JAK

    Jihd gainst the British


    During this time, in 1762, Shh Waliyullh left this world. Before his departure from this world, in 1739, he was blessed with the birth of a child, Shh Abdul Azz. In 1762, after the demise of his father, Shah Abdul Azz succeeded his father in teaching Hadth. In 1772, when he saw that the British government had seized virtual control of the country, he, for the first time in history, planted the seeds of antagonism against the British. He was the first person to pass a Fatw of the validity of Jihd against the British and their supporters in India. (Msh Allh)


    Sultn Tippu


    Whilst this Fatw was being issued, a man by the name of Haydar Ali who was a soldier of the British army in India, was blessed with a son. When this son grew up and learnt that the Ulam issued a Fatw of Jihd against the British, he began training a group of volunteers. When he witnessed his people in the shackles of slavery, he was unable to contain his emotions. He assembled a group of volunteers who pledged their allegiance unto this young man right until their deaths. Who was this young man? He was the son of Haydar Ali and his name was Fatah Ali, historically known as Tippu Sultn.

    Friends! Due to the Fatw of Shh Abdul Azz, in 1772, Fatah Ali Sultn Tippu initiated the actual Jihd against the British. In 1792, Sultn Tippu accompanied by his army came to a place called Maranjah Qadam where he invited the British army to come and negotiate some settlement. Nevertheless, they eventually fought four battles in Mysore. Sultn Tippu also engaged in physical combat against the enemy. In fact, towards the end, he was left fighting all alone. The British were,after all, a very cunning nation. When they realized that they wont be able to overcome Sultns dissension casually, they bought off Sultn Tippus chief general, Mr Sdiq, by tempting him with 22000 acres of land.


    Our present condition


    Friends! How deviated are we today, here in Pakistan. Look at the condition of this unlucky nation! Today in the colleges and universities, the history of Sultn Tippu is not even covered in full. In fact, the photo in these books depicting the Sultn is not even his photo. The photo printed in the books of history is a photo of a man without a beard whereas Sultn Tippu never shaved his beard all his life. He was quite particular of the Sunnah beard.

    The piety of Sultan Tippu


    Moulana Husain Ahmed Madani Rahmatullahi Alayhi writes in his Maktubat: "Sultan Tippu was a Qutub of his time. He was very regular with his Tahajjud Salah as well." Why don't you study the letters Sultan Tippu wrote to Sayyid Ahmed Shahid (Rahmatullahi Alaih)? In one of his letters he writes: "I wish to root out the English from the sub-continent and establish an Islamic government." The philosophy of an Islamic government on the sub-continent was first established by Sultan Tippu.

    Friends! His piety can be gauged from the following incident: after the completion of the Jamie Masjid he had built as Mysore, he issued a statement that only an Alim who is a Sahib-e-Tartib should lead the first Jamat at the Masjid. The Ulema know that a Sahib-e-Tartib is a reference to a person who has not missed five or more Salah collectively.

    When Sultan Tippu issued this statement that only a Sahib-e-Tartib should lead the first Salah, all the Ulama remained standing in their places. When he saw none of them advancing to lead the Salah, he submitted: "I did not want to expose this but since the day I attained puberty up to this day, I did not miss out five Salah collectively." (He then went ahead and performed the Salah.) He was such a pious person and today his enemies keep their dogs' names after him.

    The present day curriculum has expressed its hostility towards Sultan Tippu. Those who have kept their dogs' names after him can never be his followers. They are the adopted children of Mir Sadiq (his chief general). Right up to this day, there still exists a (cultural) branch of the British family tree in our country. They still prefer British colonialism, British royalty, British culture and a British lifestyle. Those who prefer British culture should emigrate from this country and seek asylum by their (cultural) 'forefathers'. This country is a country for the anti-British only. Hostility towards the English is embedded in the foundations of this country.

    Friends! I am opening the pages of history before you. I hope you will remember these pages of history and gain some benefit from them.

    Friends! As I was saying Sultan Tippu was martyred in 1792 whilst fighting all alone right up to the very end. Friends! He was the same Mujahid who remarked: "The life of one day of a lion is far better than a life of hundred years of a jackal." This Mujahid was martyred at the fort of Mysore whilst his chief general Mir Sadiq betrayed him for an allocation of 22000 acres of land.

    I have heard this during a khutbah when I was young. He was a pious man.

    P.s. Continue with the book, it will benefit

    The First Translation of the Holy Quran


    Friends! When Shah Waliyullah witnessed the British seizing authority from all four
    sides, he, for the very first time ever, translated The Holy Quran into Persian.
    Allow me to inform you that in the twelve hundred years prior to this translation,
    the Holy Quran was never translated from Arabic into any other foreign language. He
    was the first person to translate it into Persian. After him, his son, Shah
    Abdul-Aziz wrote a commentary on the Quran in Persian. This commentary is known as
    Tafsir-e-Azizi. Thereafter, his other sons, Shah Rafi-ud-Din and Shah Abdul Qadir
    translated this Quran from Persian into Urdu.
    Up to this day, the translation
    carried out by the sons of Shah Waliyullah form the basis of all the Urdu
    translations of the Holy Quran found in the subcontinent.

    Friends! Only the new translations which confirm to the translations of Shah Abdul
    Qadir and Shah Rafi-ud-Din are correct. As for the translations which do not confirm
    to these translations, even today, the government of the United Arab Emirates
    impounds all these translations because they do not confirm to the original
    translation carried out by Shah Waliyullah.

    Friends! The work carried out on the Holy Quran was first initiated in India by Shah
    Waliyullah. He was the first one to translate the Holy Quran and also the first
    person to disseminate the knowledge of Hadith in India. Why did Shah Waliyullah take
    this initiative. Shah Waliyullah realized that if Islamic knowledge was ot
    propogated, the British government will continue consolidating its sway over India.

    Shah Waliyullah also wrote a book entitled "Hujjatullah-il-Balighah". The Ulama are
    quite aware of the fact that in the history of Islam, nobody had written a book of
    this nature befor Shah Waliyullah. He was the first person to employ the Quranic
    verses to portray the economic system of Islam. He portrayed the fiscal policies of
    Islam, the policies of the state and its political system, and the philosophy of
    gazetting a law etc. This book was plagiarised seventy years later by Lenin and
    Marx. This prinicples of this book were plagiarised, the sources of the Quran and
    Allah were obliterated and presented with the name of communism. We do have proof to
    back this claim. Shah Waliyullah was the first man to present the economic
    philosophies of Islam. His books, Hujjatullah-il-Balighah, Tafhimat-e-Ilahiyyah,
    Fuyud-ul-Haramain
    , and other great works are all proof of his erudition and
    philosophical ideas.

    Friends! Shah Waliyullah stood up to the challenge of the Fitnah (turmoil) of the
    Anmuzaj and the fitnah of the Qaramiti. He waged Jihad (battle) against the
    traditions of the Sikhs and Hindus.


    May Allah reward u both for the noble effort.. just a small correction here.. it was Hazrat Shah Abdul Qadir Dehlvi who wrote Muzih ul Qur'an the first translation of Qur'an majeed in urdu.. i have a copy.. which is about 100 - 150 yrs old and the Muqaddama by Hazrat Shah Abdul Qadir Dehlvi (rah) is simply awesome..

    lets see what Mufakkir e Islam Hazrat Maulana Shaikh Syed Abul Hassan Ali Hasani Al Nadwi has to say.. Saviors of Islamic spirit (Tareekh Dawat o Azeemat) P:275 - 278

    "
    Shah Rafi- uddin

    Shah Rafi-uddin Abdul Wahhab, another son of Shah Waliullah (rah) was younger to Shah Abdul Aziz (rah). He attained fame and prestige as a Tradionist, Theologian and logician. he received education under the care of his elder brother and was initiated in the path of mysticism by Shah Muhammad Aashiq Phulti (rah). being precocious, he started teaching and giving juristic opinion at the age of twenty years.

    he had also penned several works and after Shah Abdul Aziz (rah) became partially blind, he took up the responsibility of teaching in his father's seminary. several scholars have acknowledged his forte and paid tributes to his literary creations.

    in a letter addressed to Shaikh Ahmad bin Muhammed Sherwani (rah), Shah Abdul Aziz wrote about Shah Rafi-uddin.
    "Now my brother manages all affairs. though younger to me, he has attained an equal proficiency in all the arts and sciences. God Almighty provided me the opportunity of bringing him up and thus honoured me with his grace. on his return to Delhi after a brief excursion , he presented me a brief yet valuable brochure discussing unique issues not touched earlier by anyone. this consists of his matchless commentary of the Surat-un-Nur and its underlying wisdom. i can say with full confidence that in this remarkable work he has suceeded in elucidating the gist and drift of the Surah in an inimitable manner which can illuminate the hearts."

    Another scholar Shaikh Muhsin bin yahya Thurati (rah) writes in the Al- Yane Al-Jane :

    "Apart from the disciples prevalent in his days the Shah had gained a mastery of the branches of learning pursued by the ancients which is seldom the case with other academicians. His works are extremely elegant- I have seen some of his profound works which can be appreciated only by the learned scholars.
    He summarises diverse facts in a few words which speak of his depth of knowledge and intelligence. His book Damgh-al-Batil discusses certain intricate issues pertaining to metaphysics which have been acclaimed by the specialists while his another brochure demonstrates how love pervades everything.

    This tract is entitled Asrar-al-Mahibbah.there would be few persons who have written anything on the subject and, as I think, only two philosophers Abu Nasr Farabi and Bu Ali Sina have works on this topic. Nasir-uddin Tusi has made a mention of these in his certain works"

    contd..

    contd..

    In addition to the books mentioned by Shaikh Muhsin. Shah Rafi-ud-din wrote many other treatises. these were on prosody, historiography, the Prophet's miracle of splitting the moon. refutation of philosophical postulates in accordance with its own principles , reality of colours, indications of Doomsday, evidences of unicity, science of counting on fingers, public affairs and commentaries on Arba'yn Kafat and Risala Mir Zahid. He also wrote several works on literary topics. one of these was entitled Takmil al Sana'a and in another he added verses to his father's couplets with the same length and rhyme.

    He composed several odes in Arabic one of which was in reply to Bu Ali Sina's Ayeniah which shows his command over the language.
    he died on 6 Shawwal 1233 /9 August 1818while his elder brother Shah Abdul Aziz was still alive. he was buried in the suburbs of Delhi near the grave of his father.


    Shah Abdul Qadir

    A scholar like his brothers, Shah Abdul Qadir was known for his piety and spiritual perfection. after the death of his father, when he was still a child he was taught by his brother Shah Abdul Aziz Dehlvi. being extremely courteous and always willing to help others he had become very popular among the masses who flocked to him for intellectual, religious and literary guidance.

    Shah Abdul Qadir resided in the Akbarabadi Masjid where he imparted education to the students. those prominent among his disciples were Maulana Abdul Hai (son of Hibbat Ullah Budhanwi), Maulana Muhammed Ismail ( son of Shah Abdul Ghani,his younger brother), Maulana Fadhl i Haq (son of Fadl-i-Imam of Khairabad), Mirza Hassan Ali Shafi Lakhnavi, Shah Ishaq (son of Shah Afzal Umari Dehlvi) Maulana Syed Mahboob Ali Jafri, Maulana Syed Is'haq (son of Syed irfan of Rae Bareli) and several others.

    Shah Abdul Qadir's Urdu translation of the Qur'an is a monumental contribution, a miraculous work of exact rendering in a simple and idiomatic language. Maulana Abdul Hai has written in the Mehr-i-Jahan Tab that Shah Abdul Qadir once dreamt of the Qur'an being revealed to him. when he informed Shah Abdul Aziz about it, the latter told him that the dream was authentic, but as revelation had ceased after the last Prophet , he would serve the Qur'an in some unique manner. the interpretation of the dream by Shah Abdul Aziz ultimately took the shape of Muzeh-al-Qur'an.

    Shah Abdul Qadir's urdu rendering is marvelously simple yet accurate which follows drift and content of the text.
    that the Shah was able to accomplish this task was a grace of God bestowed on the chosen few.

    ( Shah Abdul Qadir's translation shows his mastery over Arabic and urdu. Nobody in india has surpassed him and he excels at places even such scholars of Arabic rhetorics and lexicography as Zamakhshari and Raghib Asfahani. A literary taste of the highest order coupled with absolute sincerity and divine grace would have been required for such an accomplishment.)

    I (Hazrat Maulana Syed Abul Hassan Ali Nadwi (rah) ) have the honour of hearing the recitation of Muzeh-al-Qur'an from my maternal grandmother Sayyida Hamira (daughter of Shah Alam-ul-Huda Hasani Nasirabadi (rah)) who had been tutored by the daughter of Shah Abdul Qadir.

    Shah Abdul Qadir died on wednesday, 19 Rajab, 1230 / 27 June 1815. His elder brothers Shah Abdul Aziz and Shah Rafi-uddin were still alive who would have, naturally been most grief stricken. while burying the dead body of Shah Abdul Qadir they were heard saying, " we are not burying an individual but an epitome of learning and gnosticism."

    Shah Waliullah had four sons from his second wife Iradat Khatoon, the daughter of Syed Thana'ullah of Sonipat. Shah Abdul Aziz was the eldest followed by Shah Rafi-uddin , Shah Abdul Qadir and Shah Abdul Ghani. it was strange that they left this fleeting world in a reverse order.

    all the four were eminent scholars of their time as well as guides to the people on the path of righteousness , though Shah Abdul Ghani could not make the mark like his brothers owing to his death at an early age. However, his son Maulana Muhammed Ismail Shaheed was enabled by God to make good the loss on behalf of his father."

    The piety of Sultan Tippu (continued)


    Friends! Now we have two groups in the field. Understand this well. I wish to express my views more accurately. One group headed by Mr Sdiq supported the British whilst the group engaging in hostilities against the British was headed by Sultn Tippu. And who was the person who issued a Fatw in support of Jihd against the British? Shh Abdul-Azz (Rahmatullhi alaih)! If he did not issue this Fatw, the movement of the freedom of India would probably never have went off the ground. The movement of the silken shawls would probably never have started. The various movements in the sub-continent would not have been initiated. The war of Balakot would not have been fought. Due to the Fatw of Shh Abdul-Azz, the Muslims of India learnt to stand united and fight against the British.

    Friends! In 1792, when Sultn Tippu was martyred, the British felt that a major impediment to their objectives was removed. A thorn had been yanked away from their backs. Thereafter Nawb Sirjud-Dawlah comes to the battle field. He lead the Muslims in the battle of Pilsi. This battle persisted for 32 hours non-stop. In this battle also, the British bought off Sirjud-Dawlahs chief general Mr Jafar and also one of the other generals. Sirjud-Dawlah, like his predecessor Tippu, was also martyred.

    In the history of India, we find two groups; one made up of traitors and the other of loyalists. One group was hostile towards the British whilst the other was pro-British. Even up to this day, there are people in this country who are pro- British through and through. The group who was hostile towards the British at that time was made up of the Ulam of Deoband.

    Friends! Understand all this well. I am not in a habit of lengthy preambles. All I am trying to explain is what eventually transpired in India. How did sectarianism come about in India? Who initiated the movement of Ghulm Ahmad Qdiyni? I ask you, how did so many forms of turmoil engulf this sub-continent? What was the role of the estate owners in this country? How did the allocation of up to 22000 acres of land ever come about? Who called At-Ullh Shh Bukhri a traitor? Who issued a Fatw of Kufr on Mauln Husain Ahmad Madani? And today, who is initiating the Fitnah of Takfr (the issue of regarding a major portion of the Muslim population as disbelievers.)? Who is referring to the Imms of the Haram as Kfirs? This is a true story which needs to be understood from its very inception up to this present day. If you understand the background to this story, you will understand the philosophy surrounding the hostilities gripping this subcontinent. Listen to the pages of history unfurling before you. Today I am exposing you to the pages of history and you will learn where sectarianism got its roots. You will also learn where the evil people evolved from. I do not wish to mention any names explicitly.


    The tyranny of Rjah Ranjt Singh


    Friends! At this stage we have two groups; one of the traitors and the other of the loyalists. What happened after the martyrdom of Nawb Sirjud-Dawlah? After his demise, Rjah Ranjt Singh became the governor of Punjab. He became the governor in 1840. At that time, the Sarhad (frontier region) was also part of Punjab. During the course of his rule, Rjah Ranjt Singh initiated a spell of tyranny and aggression against the Muslims. He transformed the court-yard of the Shhi Mosque into a stable. His aggression did not even spare the honour of women.

    Eventually, news of this tyranny reaches Ry Bareli. In Ry Bareli there lived a pious servant of Allh , by the name of Sayyid Ahmad Shahd.


    The four sons of Shh Waliyullh


    I wish to inform you that Shh Waliyullh had four sons. The eldest was Shh Abdul-Azz. The second son was Shh Abdul-Qdir, the third was Shh Raf_ud-Dn and the fourth sons name was Shh Abdul-Ghani (Rahmatullhi alaih). All four of them were Mufassirs of the Qurn and Muhaddithn. All four of them were also Qutubs (great saints) of their times.

    A brief history of the first son has already been mentioned to you previously. He was the person who issued the first Fatw of Jihd in India. Shh Abdul-Qdir and Shh Raf ud-Dn were the first to translate the Qurn into Urdu. The youngest son was Shh Abdul Ghani. His greatest miracle was that he was blessed with a son whom we today refer to as Shh Isml Shahd.

    Friends! Shh Isml Shahd was a grandson of Shh Waliyullh, nephew of Shh Abdul-Azz and the son of Shh Abdul-Ghni (Rahmatullhi alaihim).

    When Rjah Ranjt Singh was appointed governor, Sayyid Ahmad Shahd left Ry Bareli for Delhi. He acquired Ilm under the guidance of Shh Abdul-Azz. Whilst Sayyid Ahmad Shahd was acquiring Ilm, Shh Abdul-Azzs nephew, Shh Isml Shahd, became a Murd (disciple) of Sayyid Ahmad Shahd.


    The two Barelis


    Friends! In India we have two big cities (with similar names). One is Ry Bareli and the other is Ult Bns Bareli. Sayyid Ahmad Shahd was born in Ry Bareli and the history of the other Bareli you are well-acquainted with. I do not wish to repeat it at this stage.
