Mockery of Deen
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
(rahmatullahi alayh)

There are many people who, despite their claims to Islam, seek to find fault with or disparage its teachings or beliefs, or make a mockery of Islam.

In the early days, we use to travel to India by boat. It took us 21 days to reach Bombay. During my third year, when I was travelling back to India, I met a doctor on board the boat.

In conversation he said to me: “Maulana, you people talk about the angels; that each person has an angel on his right shoulder and on his left shoulder and these angels record the deeds of a person.



If this is the situation, then our shoulders would have been so broad that we would not have found a coat to fit us!”

Islamic Law
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
(rahmatullahi alayh)

We want Islamic law to conform to our liking, so much so that we will find some Fatwa (Islamic ruling) to justify our actions.The ordinary laymen, and so too, many who are highly qualified in the secular field, read the Qur`aan Shareef and authentic Hadeeth kitaabs[1] such as Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, and find some Ayah (verse) or Hadeeth to justify their actions.Often, the Ayah or Hadeeth is taken out of context and expounded to justify grave and major sins.

Each Ayah and Hadeeth has an explanation and commentary. If there was no need for explanations, we would not have had Allama Sayyid Mahmood Baghdadi (rahmatullahi alaih), Ibn Katheer (rahmatullahi alaih) and other Mufassireen (commentators of the Qur`aan Shareef), or Hafez Asqalani (rahmatullahi alaih), Mulla Ali Qaari (rahmatullahi alaih) and other Muhadditheen [2] writing volumes in commentary.


Therefore, to just read and present an Ayah from the Qur`aan Shareef or a Hadeeth from a kitaab is not sufficient to justify one’s actions.
