Age of Awesome Deception

As many of you may be aware, in the Indian sub continent there is a heated debate that has been going on for a great number of years now. Which has been growing over the many years. This debate has led to two opposing groups being formed. Namely, the Brelvi and the Deobandi groups. Who go at great lengths to do all they can to put down each others claims to being on the right path. Arrows of accusations of apostasy are thrown at each other with both sides showing no signs of backing down. The arguments and frictions spilling here into the UK. Now I want to look at this problem from an objective point of view. Without siding with either of the groups in their seemingly everlasting arguments, i want to go into the under laying and the main reason for this divide. In my opinion, the ‘apparent’ words of blasphemy one scholar made with regards to the great honor of our beloved.
Shaykh Ashrafi Ali apparently uttered few words which in the eyes, minds, and the souls of many has caused him to become a person who has left Islam. (i wont be mentioning what he ‘apparently’ said, as this will be only adding fuel to the fire). My take on this is how do we really know he made such statements? i hear you say “well there are a number of evidential documents in which he said what he said.” Even with this in mind can we really justify that these are his words? when none amongst the currently living population of pakistan and in UK were actually present to hear him say these words. My simple argument is, if the Christian and the Jews can change the words of Allah, distort it in such a way that for centuries people have been lead astray then surely can it not be the case that the words of a man be changed from its original context or even just made up and then attributed to him? like the king James bible for example, there are many statements in there which are NOT the words of Allah or Isa (alihis salam)! Secondly, we are living in the time of awesome technological advancements and media. With media technology capable of showing minute by minute, second by second coverage of whats happening on the other side of the world to people on this side of the world. Even then we are deceived many times with false stories being made up on a number of issues for example. Presented in such a way as a ‘matter of fact’ basis that deceives completely everyone. For instance, the story of weapons of mass destruction which supposedly Iraq had. Documents and rare footage were shown apparently proving the case. When now we know, all this was made out of thin air! nothing to this day has been found and in fact the argument for the war was cleverly shifted from that of a war being for weapons of mass destruction to the need to remove a dictator. My point is, if even with such technology and apparently ‘clear as water’ evidence for an argument we are still told lies and are deceived then do you not think back then when there was no such media that lies and deceptions will be strife/widespread? We cannot even tell what is the truth from falsehood in the news even now with all the technology at our disposal. Then how can it be that we seem to know what someone said a great number of years ago. How can we be sure that the apparent evidence available simply hasn’t been cooked up?
To dishonor a Muslim is a great sin, the prophet (sallahu’alihi’wa’salam) said (to the nearest meaning) the honor of a Muslim is 15 times greater than the holy kabah itself! we need to clearly verify anything we hear about a Muslim before we get onto the bandwagon of accusing him or her of apostasy!

Islam is in the spotlight now more than ever before and this has caused people to question the faith itself and none more so than the new-age modernists muslims, largely from the convert western countries who are hell-bent on reforming Islam and its traditional values. This blog is a small space in the vastness of the internet where the fight to preserve, uphold and dignify the traditional inherent human values, are proactively argued against the onslaught of modernist propaganda and hate. Covering topics from current affairs to life-enriching inspirations, though to the traditional teachings of the pious and the awliyah of the past and the present.

    1. This is simply the ignorance of the modem day deobandis who are living off the baseless arguments presented by the other side – brelvis.
      When the Christian and the Jews defend the bible and the Torah as being the truth are they right then? The answer is clear!

  1. Unbelievable!!! You want proof to the trash Ashraf Ali Thanvi had in his head??? why don’t you get a copy of the original publication of his books. The newer editions are devoid of his blasphemies due to the fatwas. This is how the deobandis hide their shuyukh’s sins.
    Anyone who slanders the Prophet saw or tries to debauch islamic values by his sacrilegious writings and misleads masses, shall go to hell. ”Those who mislead others from Allah’s way and mock Islam will have a painful doom. ”31:6-7
