Mince Kabaab

Nav for Ikhlas

Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhum) once stated, that such an orator’s condition is likened to mince kabab…uncooked.

There is no desirable aroma from such a kabab, and although it has all the necessary ingredients, if a person has to take a bite therefrom, he will soon spit the same out. What is required is that the kabab be grilled over fire. Then its aroma will attract the attention of all.

Many a time, these so-called ‘enlightened’ scholars, who present flowery oration, have studied books by some authors who are modernists and Orientalists, even Shias and Qadianis. They are thus influenced to the same way of thinking and as a result, sometimes propagate ‘baatil’ (falsehood) and even Kufr.

In fact, some of these self-styled Islamic Scholars – of whom there are plentiful in the world – will be found freely intermingling and socialising with the opposite sex at such conferences, missing their Salaah and even indulging shamelessly in other sins.

…There are so many who talk of  ‘The Rise of Islam’, ‘The Rise of Islam’, yet are unable to ‘rise’ before sunrise to perform Fajr Salaah – which is a Fardh (compulsory) injunction.

Some of them will even be clean-shaven… and yet Rasulullah (SAW) had said : “My Rabb commanded me to lengthen my beard and clip my moustache.” To keep the beard one fist length is Waajib (compulsory) and to shave or shorten it less than this is forbidden.

Sadly, we will find so many Muslims presenting an argument, or even justification, in order to avoid, if not shun, the practical side of Deen (religion). How many are wont to say : ‘The heart has to be clean.’ ?

If the heart of the eagle is sound, but its wings are clipped, can it ever soar into the skies ? …No doubt, the beard, in itself, is not the only requirement. Both the external and inner self have to conform to the teachings of Rasulullah (SAW).

However, reflect on the serious insinuation, the grave implication, and derogatory and defamatory suggestion made, in such a justification : “The heart has to be clean.” … Was not the heart of the Holy Prophet e, or the hearts of his companions, and all the righteous ones who followed them, clean ?

…Together with being clean-shaven, many are without any sign of Islam in their dressing. One hesitates to even make Salaam due to the doubt created by their outer appearance. …How does one know that such a person is a Muslim, if he cannot be recognised as a Muslim ?

…Such people may have degrees, but they lack understanding of the purpose of Islamic knowledge.

If there is no practical implementation, in a person’s life, of the  Shariah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah (SAW)  , then such a person is deficient and weak in his Ma’rifat (Recognition) of Allah Ta’ala.

Thus, knowledge is one thing, and recognition is, by far, another.
