COMMENTS ON 5 REASONS WHY MAULANA MAUDUDI WAS 100 PERCENT SURE

   OF THE SUCCESS OF JAMAAT-E-ISLAMI IN THE LONG RUN

Mohtram Khan Sahib Salaam  

 

Kindly read the fifth point of Maulana  Merhoom very patiently. That work hasn't been done and hence the success though inevitable but still far off as the current Movements haven't  done the given homework in its correct perspective. And that is the theme of my forthcoming book: GIM -WHY & HOW?  

 

You haven't care to go through its draft, in spite  of my repeated request,  perhaps out of some "vanity" and now the writing of Maulana Merhoom has confirmed my apprehensions. He was a great visionary and that is why I always loved him even after his death. He would have appreciated my book more than anyone as it ought to be.

MOHTARAM SHAMIM BHAI,

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR VALUABLE COMMENTS.

I AM NOT SO PESSIMISTIC ABOUT 5TH POINT.

IT IS GOOD THAT YOUR BOOK ALSO WILL FURTHER STRENGTEHN PRODUCTION OF MORE DEVOTED AND STRONGER “RIJAL-E-KAR” TO CONSOLIDATE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION.

COMPARED TO ALL OTHER POLITICAL AND/OR SOCIAL OR RELIGIOUS PARTIES, TAHREEK-E-ISLAMI HAS THE BEST HUMAN POTENTIAL IN AND AROUND THE SOCIETY THEY ARE LIVING IN ANY COUNTRY.

Salam, Br. Hussain. 

  

I don't know what these five reasons stated by Maulana Maududi and how is the long-run. But Maulana so far has been wrong in this regard and there is little chance that the outcome would be much different going forward. 

  

Fi amanillah.

Salam Br. Farooq, 

His basic theme is that people will be gradually disillusioned from current ideologies, politicians and political parties in the Muslim world. 

This frustration and disillusionment will bring them to jamaat-e-Islami, if it maintains its moral superiority of being a democratic Party without any scandals and corruption. 

It may be a long term process.

Salam, Br. Hussain.

 

Our common people to a great extent are disillusioned. Do people in the street hope for anything better for them from any of these ideologies, politicians and political parties? I don't think so. However, that can't be expected to translate into support or leaning toward JI for a variety of reasons.

 

COMPARE THE PROGRESS OF JI DURING THE LAST 50 YEARS. ALL THE NEW BLOOD THAT HAS ENTERED IN IT, ARE THOSE WHO WERE DISILLUSIONED WITH THE STATUS-QUO. ALL 100% DISILLUSIONED MAY NOT COME, BUT A LOT OF THOSE WHO STILL HAVE SOME HOPE IN FUTURE WILL COME AND ARE COMING TOWARD JI, RATHER GRADUALLY, BUT SURELY. THERE IS NO OTHER ALTERNATE FOR THOSE WHO ARE REALLY SERIOUS TO BRING ABOUT SOME CONSTRUCTIVE CHANGE.

 

First of all, despite being "Islamic" in its orientation, at the core of its behavior is politics. Experiencing the adherents of Jamaat closely, I have seen them more as thinking in terms of power and poiltics than any deep sense of humanism (ukhrijat linnas - to serve the humanity).

 

THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS AND MAYBE YOU ARE RIGHT.. BUT ALL OF THEM ARE NOT OF THAT CATEGORY. STILL JI (JAMAT-E-ISLAMI)  IS RENOWNED EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHEREVER IT IS EXISTING EVEN AS SOME DIFFERENT NAME OF THE ISLAMIC MOVEMNT, FOR ITS MORAL SUPERIORITY COMPARED TO OTHER POLITICAL, SOCIAL OR EVEN RELIGIOUS PARTIES. IT HAS NOT BEEN EVER BLAMED FOR ANY SCANDAL OR CORRUPTION ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. AS REGARDS, INTERNAL ELECTIONS, IT IS THE MOST DEMOCRATIC PARTY WITHOUT ANY PERSONALITY CULT OR CULTURE LIKE OTHER HEREDETARY POLITICA L PARTIES IN INDIA, PAKISTAN AND BANGLADESH.

 

Second, it is utterly confused about its methodology. It wants Islamic revolution, but through democratic process. Historically and conceptually, democracy has been a result of some kind of revolution, but revolution does not come as a democratic outcome.

 

SEE THE EXAMPLE OF TURKEY. MUSTAFA KAMAL FAILED. AFTER 70 YEARS OF SECULARIST DOMINATION, FINALLY ISLAMISTS WON OVER SECULARISTS. THEY HAVE WON 3 ELCTIONS. AFTER EVERY 5-YEAR ELECTION, THEY ARE GETTING MORE SEATS. INTEGRITY OF THEIR CANDIDATES IS ATTRACTING PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR THEM. THAT WILL BE THE CASE FOR JI ALSO. IT WAS A DEMOCRATIC CHANGE IN TURKEY.SECULARISTS CANNOT EXHIBIT A GOOD CHARACTER. CORRUPTION IS UNAVOIDABLE. SECULARISM MEANS ACCEPT GOD ONLY IN PRIVATE LIFE. THEY DISREGARD GOD IN PUBLIC LIFE. THEREFORE, IT IS LOGICAL FOR THEM TO BE CORRUPT. ALL CORRUPT PARTIES, LIKE PEOPLES PARTY OF BHUTTO WAS DEFEATED IN RECENT PAKISTAN ELECTIONS, SIMILARYLY NAWAZ SHARIF WILL BE DEFEATED BY IMRAN KHAN AND TAHIRUL QADRI IN NEXT ELECTIONS. CORRUPT POLITICAL LEADERS AND SECULARISTS WILL BE REPLACED WITH ISLAM-LOVING HONEST AND FAIR PEOPLE. THE TREND WILL THUS BE SWINGING TOWARDS JI GRADUALY. IN KPK PROVINCE, JI IS HAVING A COALITION GOVERNEMENT WITH IMRAN KHAN. AFTER THE DEATH OF IMRAN KHAN, A LOT OF HIS FOLLOWERW WILL TURN TO JI. EVEN NOW THOSE WHO ARE GETTING DISILLUSIONED WITH NAWAZ SHARIF ARE ALSO TURNING TOWARDS JI ALONG WITH THOSE WHO ARE TURNING TOWARDS IMRAN KHAN AND TAHIRUL QADRI. THIS GRADUAL TURNING TOWARD JI WILL CONTINUE AS LONG AS VOTERS START COMPARING THE MORAL LEVEL OF ALL AVAILABLE CANDIDATES FOR VOTING.

 

Third, its vision of an Islamic state is fundamentally flawed, for which there hasn't been and most likely won't be broad, compelling support. Furthermore, JI's love affair with the monarchies, including that of KSA, is indicative of its duplicity in this regard. Indeed, Maulana's position (and I admire it) in his book Khilafat wa Mulukiyat was contradicted by himself by accepting the King Faisal Prize. [See http://dahuk.net/maulana-maududi-and-king-faisal-award/]

 

MONARCHIES HAVE BEEN A PART OF MUSLIM HISTORY FOR CENTURIES, SINCE THE SHAHADAT OF IMAM HUSSAIN. WE HAVE TO ACCEPT REALITY, AS IT IS, WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT. UMAR BIN ABDUL AZIZ WAS AN UMMAYAD MONRACH, BUT HISTORIANS REGARD HIS PERIOD AS THAT OF THE PERIOD OF 4 CALIPHS. WE DO NOT LIKE THAT SYSTEM. IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE SHOULD TURN THEM INTO OUR ENEMIES. HOLY QURAN SAYS, “TA’AWANU ALA-AL BIRRE WA TAQWA; WA LA TAWANU ALAL ITHME WAL UDWAN”. I.E. COOPERATE AND SUPPORT IF SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING GOOD AND DO NOT SUPPORT IF SOMEONE IS DOING EVIL. A MUSLIM RULER WHO IS NOT SECULAR AND CLAIMS TO ENFORCE SHARIAH TO SOME EXTENT HAS TO BE OBEYED BY MUSLIMS UNDER HIS JURISDICTION. REVOLT AGAINST SUCH A RULER IS NOT ALLOWED. BUT IF WE HAVE POWER, THEN REVOLT AGAINST SECULAR RULER IS ALLOWED IN SHARIAH AS PER FATWA OF IMAM ABU HANIFA, SUPPORTED BY MAULANA MAUDUDI. I FEEL THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG FOR MAULANA MAUDUDI TO ACCEPT FAISAL AWARD AND TO GIVE GUIDELINES FOR MADINAH UNIVERSITY.

 

Fourth, time and again, at critical junctures of history it has committed major blunders. The last of it was trying to keep the two wings of Pakistan together in 1971. This last one was more than just blunder. Siding and collaborating with arms with a genocidal army was a moral crime.

 

THAT IS A VERY HOT TOPIC. BEING A BANLADESH NATIONAL YOU MAY KNOW MORE ABOUT IT.  I CAN ONLY SEND YOU STATEMENT OF PROF. GHULAM AZAM IN A SEPARATE MAIL, WHICH HE HAD ISSUED JUST BEFORE HIS ARREST, WHICH WILL CLARIFY JI POSITION IN THIS REGARD. UNFORTUNAELY IT IS IN URDU ONLY. BUT MAYBE YOU ARE ALREADY AWARE OF IT IN BENGALI OR ENGLISH.

 

That's why Maulana's 100% confidence has nearly 0% chance of getting realized. JI needs to have a fundamental re-evaluation of its vision, mission and methodology.

 

AFTER THE SUCCESSES OF ISLAMISTS IN ELECTIONS IN PALESTINE (HAMAS) AND ANTI-SECULARISTS IN TURKEY AND MANY OTHER SMALL CHANGES I HAVE EXPERIENCED SINCE MY STUDENT LIFE IN COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY ELECTIONS IN THE FORM OF VICTORY OF ISALAMIC GROUP OF STUDENTS OVER ALL OTHERS, AND THE CHANGE OF LABOUR UNION LEADERSHIP IN CHITTAGONG RAILWAY UNION UNDER MY GUIDANCE FROM 19-YEAR OLD LEFTISTS DOMINATION TO THE CONTROL SHIFTING TO THE HANDS OF ISLAMISTS, I AM A FIRM BELEIVER NOW THAT JI CAN BRING ABOUT CHANGE THROUGH ELECTION PROCESS DEMOCRATICALLY UTILIZING THE INCREASING ROLE AND POWER OF MEDIA.

 

Fi amanillah.

تحریکِ اسلامی کا مستقبل

 


مَیں تحریک اسلامی کے مستقبل کے بارے میں بے حد پُرامید ہوں۔ حق و باطل کی جو قوتیں آج برسرِ پیکار ہیں، جب ہم ان کو دیکھتے ہیں اور ان کے حالات کا موازنہ کرتے ہیں، تو صاف محسوس ہوتا ہے کہ حالات اسلام کی کامیابی اور سربلندی کی طرف اشارہ کر رہے ہیں۔ مَیں جن وجوہ کی بنا پر یہ بات کہتا ہوں، وہ یہ ہیں:
۱۔ اسلام کے علاوہ جتنے بھی نظریات ہیں ان سب کو دورِحاضر میں جانچ اور پرکھ کر دیکھا جاچکا ہے اوروہ سب ناکام رہے ہیں۔ باطل قوتوں کے پاس آج کوئی نظریہ باقی نہیں رہا ہے۔ لہٰذا اب ان کے پاس کوئی ایسی چیز نہیں ہے جس میں فی الواقع لوگوں کے لیے کشش ہو۔ ہم اِس بات کا مشاہدہ کر رہے ہیں کہ انھیں اسلام کا لبادہ اوڑھ کر آنا پڑتا ہے۔ ان کے کھوکھلے پن کا اس سے واضح ثبوت اور کیا ہوگا۔
۲۔ اِس ملک میں جتنے بھی گروہ اور جتنی بھی قوتیں موجود ہیں، وہ ایک ایک کر کے آزمایش کے مقام پر آتے چلے جارہے ہیں، اور اپنی نااہلی اور نالائقی ثابت کرتے چلے جارہے ہیں۔ خواہ آپ سیاسی گروہوں کو لیں، خواہ دوسرے طبقات کو، ہر ایک آزمایش کی کسوٹی پر کھوٹا ثابت ہوا ہے اور ہورہا ہے۔ اس کے نتیجے میں قوم ان میں سے ایک ایک سے مایوس ہوتی جارہی ہے اور ایک وقت آئے گا کہ وہ ان سے بالکل مایوس ہوجائے گی۔ اور قوم میں خود ہی کسی قابلِ اعتماد عنصر کے لیے پیاس پیدا ہوگی، بلکہ ان حضرات کی کارگزاریوں کی وجہ سے پیدا ہونی شروع بھی ہوگئی ہے۔ جیسے جیسے یہ پیاس بڑھے گی___ اور اسے لازماً بڑھنا ہے ___ ویسے ہی ویسے ان شاء اللہ تحریکِ اسلامی کے لیے مواقع پیدا ہوتے جائیں گے۔
۳۔ باطل کی قوتیں اگر متحد ہوتیں تو پھر شاید کچھ خطرناک ہوتا، لیکن اللہ تعالیٰ نے ان سب کو ایک دوسرے کا حریف اور دشمن بنا دیا ہے۔ ان میں سے ہر ایک دوسرے کی طاقت کو توڑنے اور اس کے اعتماد کو ختم کرنے کے درپے ہے۔ ان کی مخالفت میں بہت سا کام جو تعمیری قوتوں کو کرنا تھا یہ حضرات خود اپنے ہی ہاتھوں کر رہے ہیں۔ اس نے تحریکِ اسلامی کی قوت کو بڑھا دیا ہے۔
۴۔ جن حالات سے آج ہمیں سابقہ پیش ہے اور جس سمت میں اس ملک کو لے جایا جا رہا ہے، وہ ہمارے لیے بے شمار مشکلات پیدا کر رہا ہے۔ خصوصیت سے معاشرے میں جو بگاڑ راہ پارہا ہے اور جس تیزی سے بڑھ رہا ہے، وہ انتہائی تشویش ناک ہے۔ ہمارے پاس اس وقت وہ ذرائع موجود نہیں جن سے ہم اس کو روک سکیں۔ لیکن مجھے پورا یقین ہے کہ ان شاء اللہ اس بگاڑ کے باوجود تحریکِ اسلامی کا مستقبل نہایت روشن ہے۔ ہم اس مفروضے پر تو کام کر نہیں رہے کہ شیطان کو معزول کردیا جائے اور ہمیں کھلی چھٹی مل جائے گی، یا تحریک اسلامی کے لیے کوئی ایسا مخصوص میدان ہے جہاں شیطان کا عمل دخل نہ ہو۔ ہم اِس قسم کی کوئی توقع نہیں رکھتے اور انھی حالات میں اپنے لیے راہ نکال رہے ہیں اور ان شاء اللہ اس میں کامیاب ہوں گے۔
جو لوگ حالات کے بگاڑ سے مایوس ہوجاتے ہیں، مَیں ان سے کہتا ہوں کہ کیا یہ ایک حقیقت نہیں کہ اِس سے بدرجہا زیادہ خراب حالات کے باوجود اور انتہائی جبروتشدد کے استعمال کے باوجود آج تک [اشتراکی] روس سے اسلام کو خارج نہیں کیا جاسکا [بلکہ آج وسطی ایشیا کی مسلم ریاستیں روس کے چنگل سے نکلنے کے بعد آزاد ریاستیں ہیں]۔ ترکی میں اسلام کو غیرمؤثر بنانے کے لیے کیا کچھ نہیں کیا گیا؟ لیکن نتیجہ کیا ہوا؟ وہاں آج بھی اسلام کے ساتھ دل چسپی اسی طرح ہے۔ یہ ان قوموں کا حال ہے جہاں دین سے انحراف اور معاشرتی بگاڑ کے خلاف کوئی جوابی چیز موجود نہ تھی، جہاں لوگوں کے لیے دُور دُور تک اُمید کی کوئی شعاع نہ تھی لیکن اس کے باوجود وہ اسلام سے وابستہ رہے اور کوئی طاقت اسلام کو مٹا نہ سکی۔ ہمارے ملک میں ایک مثبت جوابی تحریک موجود ہے۔ یہ مسلسل کام کر رہی ہے۔ لوگوں کو ایک سہارا نظر آتا ہے۔ اس لیے بگاڑ کی رفتار خواہ کتنی ہی تیز کیوں نہ ہو مجھے مایوسی کی کوئی وجہ نظر نہیں آتی، بلکہ جب خود اسلامی تحریک کی ترقی اور اس کے اثرات کا ہم جائزہ لیتے ہیں تو ہمارے سر خدا کے حضور شکر سے جُھک جاتے ہیں۔ میرے دل میں ایک لمحے کے لیے بھی مایوسی کے جذبات نہیں پیدا ہوتے۔ مَیں حالات کو ہر لحاظ سے اُمیدافزا سمجھتا ہوں۔
۵۔ پھر مجھے اِس بات پر مکمل یقین ہے کہ اگر کسی حق بات کے لیے موزوں طریقے پر کام کیا جائے، اور کام کرنے والے بھی موزوں ہوں، اور کام بھی حکمت و دانش مندی کے ساتھ کیا جائے تو ناکامی کی کوئی وجہ نہیں بلکہ کامیابی ناگزیر ہے۔ حق کی فطرت میں کامیابی ہے۔ ضرورت جس امر کی ہے وہ موزوں طریقے پر صحیح آدمیوں کے ذریعے اور حکمت و تدبر کے ساتھ کام کرنا ہے اور الحمدللہ یہ کام ہو رہا ہے۔ یہی وجہ ہے کہ مَیں تحریکِ اسلامی کے مستقبل کے بارے میں ہمیشہ پُرامید رہا ہوں اور آج بھی پُرامید ہوں۔ ان شاء اللہ اسلام غالب ہوکر رہے گا۔ (مولانا مودودی کے انٹرویو، اوّل، ص ۲۰۲۔۲۰۴)
