First they destroyed the Aqeedah, then they killed thousands of Muslims, and now they are after our EBADAH (worships)
The uprising of Khawarij
Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Assalamo Alykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh,
As you may know, Wahabees / Salafees / Pervaizees / Munkireen Hadith / Ahle Hadith are various flavours of Khawarij with minor differences. First they made almighty Allah controversial. They came out with various theories about the “shapes” and “forms” of Allah. Then they changed the interpretation of Qur’an. Then they created several theories about Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (peace be upon him) and made him a controversial figure within Islam.
They destroyed the AQEEDAH (beliefs) of Islam. They imported several Jewish beliefs into Islam, which were quite contradicting to Islam. They created several Bid’a (distortions) and but blamed traditional Muslims as Bidatees (distorters). Then they fought against Muslims and killed thousands of them in the name of Islam. They destroyed the holy shrines and the heritage of Islam in the name of “Tauheed”. They created hate and violence against fellow Muslims and later towards non-Muslims.
Now they are after our worships (EBADAAT). They are forcing Muslims to perform worships (EBADAAT) on wrong days such as fasting, Eid and Hajj. The most recent example is as follows.
The famous ISNA/ICNA/FCNA affiliated website www.moonsighting.com states the following.
“ The Astronomical New Moon is on November 6, 2010 (Saturday) at 4:52 UT. This moon cannot be seen anywhere in the world, except in Polynesian Islands. On November 7, it still will not be visible in Northern Asia, and Northern Europe and Northern Canada, but everywhere else, it can be seen in easily”. http://moonsighting.com/1431zhj.html.
In other words, according to SCIENCE, it was impossible to see moon in Saudi Arabia on November 6. How come the Saudis saw the moon on November 6? We know science can not be wrong. Obviously, Saudis are wrong.
If we assume that the Saudis decided based upon the birth of the moon and not on the basis of visibility of moon, then I have a more serious question. Who gave authority to Saudis to override Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)? These WAHABEES / SALAFEES / AHLE HADITH always want to see proof from Qur’an OR Hadith even for very minor things. But it seems that they now have decided to become divine and do not need to follow Qur’an and Hadith anymore.
We all know that there are more then a dozen of hadith indicating to set the dates of Islamic months after moon become visible. I am not asking to look for moon in this scientific age. I am just asking not to change the divine guidance of Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). For daily five prayers no one performs prayer (Salat) after seeing Sun OR Star’s positions. We use watches and clocks for this purpose but we pray at the time defined by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Science and technology help us to determine prayer times. Similarly, we MUST use science to determine the time for Ramadan, Eid and Hajj but we must start these months based upon the criteria defined by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
In today’s scientific and technological age, science and technology can pinpoint when moon will be visible. Why don’t we use science to help us in following our religion? Why Wahabees / Salafees are creating innovations (Bid’a) in our religion and trying to destroy our EBADAAT?
Qur’an describes the manipulation of calendar as a pagan tradition.
إِنَّمَا النَّسِيءُ زِيَادَةٌ فِي الْكُفْرِ
“Verily the transposing (of a prohibited month) is an addition to Unbelief” (Surah Al Tawbah, 9-37)
Although Saudis are not transposing / substituting months like Pagans used to do but Saudis (Wahabees / Salafees) are reviving the pagan tradition. In this modern way of “Nasee (لنَّسِيءُ ) Saudis are transposing / changing days of Islamic occasions by calculating them wrong. This is not only a worse Bid’a but it resembles with the pagan tradition of manipulating calendar, which Qur’an calls KUFR.
“The Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia announced that 1 Dhul-Hijjah will be on Sunday 7 November 2010, and the Muslims performing Hajj will be in 'Arafah on Monday 15 November 2010.
According to Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA), Eid-al-Adha in North America would be on the day after Hajj; so Eid-al-Adha is on Tuesday, November 16, 2010”.
Are the ISNA/ICNA and the FCNA confident that on the Judgment Day they will be able to defend themselves in front of Allah? Why are they trying to create their own ways in Islam? Why are they supporting a wrong and corrupt decision?
I beg to Allah to accept the Hajj of all Hujjaj (pilgrims) who will be performing Hajj this year on the wrong day. O’Allah, you know, it is not their fault. They have been forced by a government who does not respect your guidance.
However, those who are not living under the ruthless misguided rulers, please celebrate Eid on the day based upon the scientific evidence of moon sighting. In North America it is November 17, 2010. This is based upon the scientific evidence of moonsighting and the criteria defined by the Sunnah of our Prophet (peace be upon him).
Please safeguard your EMAAN and A’MAAL-e-SALEH by following Qur’an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
May Allah accept our prayers and scarifies. Ameen
