16 Nov

New Delhi 16th Nov 2011

A Prominent Organization of Indian Muslims Raza Academy , today protested against United states of America on Insulting Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam at John F. Kennnedy Airport, New york. The activist of the Raza Academy, which had also organised a mass Rally at Azad Maidan, Mumbai in 2006 against the arrival of then President George Bush to India, send an old pair of shoes to Mr. Barack Obama,President of U.S through U.S consulate.

Muhammad Saeed Noori, General Secretary of Raza Academy told that America is biggest terrorist .It is murdering innocent civilians in the name of bringing peace since bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at Japan. Now after leading  unjustified attacks on Libiya it is preparing a war with Iran. The war on terror has nothing to do with democracy or peace but it is an propaganda war to destabilise the growing economies   to utilise them for its own benefit. U.S is not friend to anyone,it is its own friend and Indian govt. must understand this fact. We should now open our eyes and must not depend on US for various Policies at International level.The recent insult of former Indian President Dr. APJ Abdul kalam at JFK International airport in the name of checking shows how much it has respect to our highest level leaders and Politicians . India must not act like  slave countries and must lodge its strong Protest by summoning the Counsel of U.S at Ministry of Foreign Affairs because it is a matter of national prestige and pride.

We are sending a Pair of shoes to U.S president Barack Hussain Obama through U.S consulate at New Delhi that it may learn a lesson.

The Great Imaam and Mujaddid, Sayyiduna AlaHadrat Imam Ahmad Rida al-Qadiri (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) was only 4 years old when he completed the recitation of the Holy Qur’an. Due to the extraordinary intelligence bestowed upon him by Almighty ALLAH, AlaHadrat Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu completed his Islamic Education at the very young age of 13 years, 10 months and 5 days.

The Illustrious Teachers of Imaam Ahmad Rida
 

AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Anhu) gained his basic knowledge at home. He later continued his studies under the guidance of certain noted teachers. He studied under his father, Hadrat Allama Mawlana Naqi Ali Khan (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu). He completed his primary education by Janab Mirza Ghulam Qadir Baig, by whom he studied the book, “Mizaan-e-Munsha’ab.” AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) also studied under the guidance of the following luminous personalities:

 

1. Hadrat Mawlana Abdul Ali Rampuri (Radi Allahu Anhu)
2. Shaykh al-Kabeer, Hadrat Allama Syed Shah Abul Hussain Ahmad Noori (Radi Allahu Anhu)
3. Shaykh al-Tariqah, Hadrat Allama Shah Ale Rasool Mahrahrwi (Radi Allahu Anhu)
4. Shaykh Ahmad bin Zain Dahlaan al-Makki (Radi Allahu Anhu)
5. Shaykh Abdur Rahman Makki (Radi Allahu Anhu), and
6. Shaykh Hussain bin Saleh Makki (Radi Allahu Anhu)

 
AlaHadrat and the Ulama of Haramain


When AlaHadrat went to perform his first HAJJ and Zyarah on the 26th of Shawwal 1295 A.H. (1876). He was only 20 years old at that time. One day, after completing his Hajj, he went to perform his Maghrib Salaah before the Maqaam-e-Ibrahim (Alaihis Salam). Having completed his Salaah, the Imam of the Shafi’ee order of Makkatul Mukarramah, Allama Hussain bin Saleh Kamaal (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu), approached him. He clutched AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) by his hand and led him to his house. The great Imam then placed his hand on the blessed forehead of AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) and said:

 

“Verily, I am observing the Noor of Almighty Allah on this forehead.”


Without hesitation, he blessed AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Anhu) with the Sanad (Certificate) of Sihah Sitta (Six Compilers of Hadith: Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, Abu Dawood, Tirmizi and Nisa’i). He also began addressing AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Anhu) by the title of “Dia al-Din” or “The Light or Splendour of Deen.” The speciality of this Sanad is that it has only Eleven (11) levels to Imam Bukhari.

AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Anhu) was also blessed with the Asnaad (Certificates) of Hadees o Fiqah, Usool o Tafseer and etc. from the Mufti of the Hanafi order in Makkatul Mukarramah, Sayyiduna Allama Abdur Rahmaan Siraaj Hanafi and Mufti of the Shafi’ee order in Makkatul Mukarramah, Mufti Shaykh Sayyad Ahmad Dahlaan Shafi’ee (Radi Allahu Anhuma).

When he went for his Second Hajj in 1323/1905, he stayed for three months in the Holy Land and constantly searched for anyone who had higher-ranking Sanad of Hadith then His Sanad of Hadith. He wanted to take it from him and elevate His existing Sanad of Hadith. But Alhamdulillah! His Sanad was the highest and everyone took Sanads from him. Shaykh Abd al-Rahmaan Dah’laan, the youngest son of Shaykh Ahmed Dah’laan and his elder brother, Shaykh Asad Dah’laan (Qaadi of Makkah at that time) both took Sanad of Hadith from him too. And Shaikh Saaleh Kamal, the most Knowledgable Scholar of Makkah at that time, though he was a senior Aalim, but he insisted in taking Sanad-e-Hadith and other Ijazah from AlaHadrat. AlaHadrat tried to evade this for a few days in respect but it was in vain. Shaikh Saaleh Kamal constantly insisted and forced AlaHadrat to issue them to him.

Raza Academy:We are Progressive and Peaceful

14 Aug

New Delhi/Mumbai

Raza Academy which is facing some difficult time from some political quarters replied by saying that We are peaceful and progressive.

A group of like-minded Sunni Muslims, under the leadership of founder president Saeed Noori, established Raza Academy in 1978 at Null Bazar in south Mumbai to print and publish books written by 17th century Muslim scholar Aalahazrat Imam Ahmed Raza.
Over the years, the academy set up

32 centres across India, and became a voice of the country’s Sunni community.
“From creating educational awareness, to protesting against the violence against the minorities, we have always been at the fore,” said Noori, and added that their protests have always been peaceful. The academy’s protest at the same venue on August 3 went largely unnoticed, he said.

“Since Ramzan is going on, we have been visiting mosques to create awareness about the violence that our community have been subjected to in Assam and other parts of the world. Text messages, emails and Facebook posts are mediums used to invite people to participate [in the protest],” said Shezanali Hemani, a supporter of the academy.

Black flags, badges, banners and ribbons have been characteristic of most of their peaceful unarmed protests, Hemani said. In an unusual protest, an old pair of black shoes was sent to US President Barrack Obama for the frisking of former Indian President Dr Abdul Kalam at JFK airport in New York last year.

In March, the academy protested the arrival of Pakistan-born scholar Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri to the city, saying his speeches could create communal tension. Noori said that they moved the Bombay high court to restrain him, but when the court ruled against them, they staged a peaceful protest outside the auditorium.

With changing times, the younger members of the community have also begun to use social media to network amongst the community members.

A tribute to Mujadid on his day ; Youm-e-Ala Hazrat Imam Ahmed Raza Khan

15 Oct


A’alahazarat

IMAM AHMED RAZA AND HIS IMPACT IN THE WORLD TODAY

No tribute to Imam Ahmed Raza (radi Allahu anhu) could be complete without understanding the sustained restlessness of the Imam in providing true leadership throughout his life, when he was faced with leading the Muslims in a fragile moment in the history of Islam in the Indo-Pak sub-continent. The continued emergence of false sects like the Qadianis, Wahabis, and other sects which sought to prove that Almighty Allah indulges in falseness – Ma’aazallah, Summa Ma’aazallah – proved a genuine threat when these sects began imitating unsuspecting but uneducated Muslims into their fold. It was against such a background that Imam Ahmed Raza (radi Allahu anhu) rose forth to defend the true Islamic principles as a scholarly giant, and in doing so, also succeeded in securing a place in the Urdu language as a literary giant in Na’athia Kalam.

In typical tyrannical behaviour, the envious opponents of the Imam embarked on futile attempts at issuing propaganda aiming to discredit the Imam by labelling him as an “innovator” and “mischief maker”; and announcing that the sole providers of Islamic research in the Indo-Pak sub-continent were the Deobandi Ulema. It is interesting to note that history has proved that the volume of work the Imam had completed in Islamic Research singlehandedly was beyond the capability of the entire Deobandi Ulema to this day.

We thank the Almighty Allah that as He unfolds the truth before the masses. Islamic scholars the world over are recognising the Imam’s superiority in issuing Islamic judicial decrees with incisiveness and substantiated detail. Today, expensive research is being taken on the Imam’s writings and decrees the world over in the Urdu, Persian, Arabic and English languages. Special permissions for such research were made in Birmingham University, England, Holland, India and Pakistan.

Little publicised is the fact that Imam Ahmed Raza (radi Allahu anhu) produced more researched decrees in annihilating Bid’at practices in India in the last century than any other scholar. Established anti-Islamic customs in Muslim society were accepted without question until Imam Ahmed Raza started a reform campaign armed with Quranic injunctions and researched Hadith to wipe out such customs.

More than just issuing Fatawas, Imam Ahmed Raza (radi Allahu anhu) prepared researched treatises on an academic level on these issues which fast saw the decline of most of the anti-Islamic practices. To this day the Muslim masses benefit from his Fatawa-e-Razvia, Ahkam-e-Shariat, Irfaan-e-Shariat, Al Malfooz, Fatawa-e-Africa, etc. which deal with almost every masaa’il of our day-to-day life.

Imam Ahmed Raza (radi Allahu anhu) was very sensitive to the pains and afflictions that befell the Muslim Ummah. In this regard he used every scholarly resource at his disposal to assist the Muslims regain their honour in the face of all anti-Islamic forces.

In his Hada’iq-e-Bakshish he wrote an entire nazm “Soona Jungle” warning the Muslims about safeguarding their Imaan. This Nazm became very popular with the masses as its clear message was arranged in a style that appealed to the masses. It should be the duty of the Ulema and organisers of Meelad to popularise this Nazm in our society as it stirs up the fear of Almighty Allah and the Aakirah in the minds of the listeners.

GREAT BREAKTHROUGH AT THE AL AHZAR UNIVERSITY: The famous Al Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt has granted permission for a graduate to research on the topic of A’la Hazrat, Imam Ahmed Raza (radi Allahu anhu) and his services for Hanafi Fiqah. This research is towards the M.Phil. Degree and Mustaq Ahmed Shah of Pakistan is doing this research.

IMAM AHMED RAZA AND MEDICINE (TIBB): Hakeem Mohammed Saeed Dehlwi, the founder of Madinatul Hikmat University, Karachi (Research Centre for Unani Medicine) and owner of Hamdard Dawa Khana did research and compiled A’la Hazrat’s (radi Allahu anhu) theory about medicine. The book is titled, “Imam Ahmed Raza aur Fann Tibb,” and is printed and published in Pakistan.

IMAM AHMED RAZA FOUNDATION: The IARF was recently established in the Kerala State India to research and propagate the teachings of Imam Ahmed Raza (radi Allahu anhu).

NEW TRANSLATIONS OF IMAM AHMED RAZA PUBLISHED: The “Islamic Times” of the U.K. has recently published two articles by A’la Hazrat (radi Allahu anhu). These are: (1) “A Commentary upon Paper Currency Notes,” which was researched and translated by Dr. Muhammad A. Junejo and (2) “Imam Ahmed Raza and Topology,” by Dr. Abdul Naim Azizi of Jasoli, Bareilly Shareef.

HISTORIC A’LA HAZRAT MAZAAR STAMP PRINTED BY GOVERNMENT OF INDIA: The Postal Services Department of the Indian government have acknowledged the Islamic and Academic services of the great Mujaddid (Reviver) of Islam, A’la Hazrat, Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Al-Qaderi (radi Allahu anhu). They have printed a new Indian stamp portraying the Mazaar Shareef of A’la Hazrat (radi Allahu anhu) in full colour. The words “A’la Hazrat Barelvi” have been printed along the side of the stamp in English and Hindi. This stamp is currently being sold at all Post Offices in India. This is India’s way of saluting a great genius and Islamic scholar of his time, A’la Hazrat (radi Allahu anhu).

RESEARCH WORK ON IMAM AHMED RAZA KHAN: Hazrat Maulana Ahmed Raza Khan, an eminent jurist, also known as A’la Hazrat (radi Allahu anhu) was born at Bareilly, India in 1856. He completed the Holy Quran at the age of four and became astonishingly well-versed in more than fifty branches of learning, pertaining to Ancient Sciences, Current Sciences and Oriental Learnings and left contributions in all these academic disciplines.

At Makkah Mu’azzama and Madina Munawwara, he was visited by many scholars who received diplomas and fatawas from him. Due to his distinction in this field, the Islamic world acknowledged him as a great Jurist. The renowned poet of the East, Dr. Allama Iqbal, remarked, “Such a genius and intelligent Jurist did not emerge.” Despite being well-versed in scores of branches of knowledge, he restricted his interest to the following branches:

  1. To support and defend the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
  2. To uproot the innovations prevalent in the Muslim society.
  3. To issue fatawa according to the Hanafi School of Jurisprudence.

In short, he was a Jurist, Theologian and a Reformer whose life revolved around the motto “Love the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).” In recognition of this eminent personalities life, the following researches are being carried out by these individuals, amongst others:

  1. Dr. Usha Saanyaal, Ph.D Colombo University, “Ahmed Raza and the Ahle-Sunnat Wa Jamaat Movement (1921-1947)”, Oxford University, Press, New Delhi.
  2. Dr. Ghulaam Qureshi Dastageer, who translated A’la Hazrat’s Qalaam in English which was published in the “Islamic Times” U.K.
  3. Muhammed Muazzam Ali who wrote “Fundamental Faith of Islam -Treaties of Ahmed Raza”
  4. Prof. J.M. Baljo of Leiden University, Holland, who presented and delivered research material on A’la Hazrat at an international forum.
  5. British scholar, Dr Muhammad Haroon, who has compiled a thesis on “The World Importance of Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Bareilly.”

RESEARCH AND TRANSLATION OF A’LA HAZRAT’S WORKS:A’la Hazrat, Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (radi Allahu anhu), the Muslim Revivalist (Mujaddid) of the previous Islamic Century, wrote and compiled numerous commentaries and treatises on various topics.

His poetry includes such works as “Mustapha Jaan-e-Rahmat.” At present, many Islamic and Western universities, colleges and Darul Uloom’s, throughout the world, are researching and translating the works of this great Muslim scholar. Some of the countries in which research is being carried out are: India, Pakistan, United States of America, England, Holland, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and South Africa. Perhaps one of his more famous scientific theories lies in his proof that the sun and other bodies revolve around the earth!

UNIVERSITIES CONDUCTING RESEARCH ON A’LA HAZRAT’S WORKS: More than twenty five Universities throughout the world are actively researching the works of the great Islamic Scholar and Saint, A’la Hazrat (radi Allahu anhu). “KANZUL IMAAN” NOW AVAILABLE: “Kanzul Imaan”, the internationally renowned Urdu translation of the Holy Quran by A’la Hazrat, Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Al-Qaderi (radi Allahu anhu) has been translated into the English language by many Islamic scholars. This momentous task was first undertaken by Professor Fatimi, a highly acclaimed academic of the University of Kuwait. He had it published in Karachi, Pakistan. The second translation was undertaken by Professor Shah Fareedul Haq of Pakistan and was published in India and Pakistan.

Consequently, a learned and well-known scholar of “Razviat,” Sayyed Aarif Ali Razvi, of Kalyaan Bombay has exhorted the Doordarshan, India’s state television channel, to present an indepth documentary on the life of Imam Ahmed Raza (radi Allahu anhu).

A’LA HAZRAT’S HISTORY INCLUDED IN ENCYCLOPEDIA: The Islamic book publications section of the Punjab University is to launch a new Urdu Encyclopedia of Islam. In the 10th volume, pages 278 to 287, incorporates a brief history of the life and works of A’la Hazrat, Imam-e-Ahle Sunnat, Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (radi Allahu anhu). This brief history was prepared by Professor Dr Muhammad Ma’sud Ahmed, M.A. Phd., on the request of Dr.Sayed Abdullah.

RESEARCH ON A’LA HAZRAT’S “FAUZ-E-MOBEEN”: Scientists from the Allama Iqbal Open University in Islamabad have taken a keen interest in researching A’la Hazrat’s (radi Allahu anhu) “Fauz-e-Mobeen” which deals with the movement of the sun and planets around the earth. At present, research is about to commence on the subject.

CHRISTIAN CONVERTS TO ISLAM AFTER READING “KANZUL IMAAN”: In 1974, Dr. Hannif Faatimi of London University brought the Professor of Kuwait an English translation of “Kanzul Imaan” (A’la Hazrat’s translation of the Holy Quran) for printing. Prof. Faatimi at that time had met a Christian scholar who had revealed that he was interested in reading more about Islam. Prof. Faatimi was two-minded about giving him an English copy of Kanzul Imaan. Eventually, he gave him a copy to read. The Christian scholar, after reading this translation, accepted Islam.
