Asalamu Alykum everyone,
I would like to inform you all that most of the information here, on Maulana Imran Hosein, is incorrect. I would also like to add that, as Muslims, we should refrain from making statements like these (which come very close to slander) when we do not know people personally or are unfamiliar with their views. May Allah (swt) forgive us all inshaAllah.
Also, in almost all of his lectures, he stresses the fact that his views are his opinion & anyone is more that welcome to differ with him.
Just to correct some of the items mentioned below:
- was Bayt to Dr Israr Ahmed:
He took his bayat from Dr Maulana Fazlur Rahman Ansari (ra). He is not the Khalifa of any Shaykh & does not give bayat himself
- practises the Qadri Chishti Silsila and practises Tassawuff:
While Mualana Imran was a student of Dr Fazlur Rahman Ansari (ra) his view on tassawuf is different
- "Maulana" Imran Hosein is Barelwee leaning:
Im sure i can speak for Maulana when I say that he does not lean to any side.
- He thinks Yajuj/Majuj are the White European (Jews):
He has written a book on the subject, so minimizing this to one defintion would be incorrect.
- He thinks that the Island where Dahjjal is chained up is UK:
This is his opinion yes, he explains this by his understanding of the Hadeeth of tamim-al-dari.
- He thinks that Paper currency is Haram:
100% correct. I would suggest that you read his views on the International monetary system. Maulana Imran has studied international monetary economics so his views as an Islamic scholar as well as a student of economic are stated very clearly.
- I realy think he is a Shia
He is not Shia
- find the Hadith he used to prove his point on dajjaal and his opinions upon dajjaal in general
Maulana Imran uses what his teacher (Dr Ansari) called the "system of meaning". basically he says that no ayat or Hadith can be taken in isolation & you need to study all the ayat & Hadeeth on the topic to form an opinion
All of Maulana's views are expressed (in great detail) on his website & it should clear up allot of confusion. You would need to however read the full article (or book) to understand his views completely as they are usually taken out of context (youtube clips is not a good way to get to understand his views). If however you do not find what you are looking for & choose not to email him directly, please feel free to PM me. I would like to think of myself as 1 of his students & know Maulana Imran personally.
Agree or disagree with Maulana but his analysis should be considered and respected by all
