CUT-MULLAH’S ARE BRAINWASHING,
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
TORONTO: Allah’s Islam is very simple and Mullah’s Islam is very difficult.
This was stated by Hazrat Allama Pir Syed Muhammad Husaini Ashraf, son of Sheikh-e-Tariqat Hazrat Allama Syed Muhammad Jilani Ashraf.
He was speaking at the residence of Shahid Hashmi on September 10, 2017. Both were special guests. Selected distinguished guests were invited including Salma Zahid, MP, Dr Taqi Abedi, Sohail Rana, Dr Ali Naqvi, Nazimuddin Nazim, Bashir Khan, Arshad Bhatti, Nasir Shah, Mohsin Masood, Muhammad Shaikh, Syed Muhammad Iqbal, Javed Malik and Masoodul Haq. Most of them had very good and informative discussion with the Sheikhs, who too took keen interest in the literate people and their talks. Talks of the Sheikhs impressed the audience very much.
Both the Sheikhs---father and son---spoke on sufism and how it is helping people understand and follow Allah’s Islam and protecting them from Mullah’s Islam.
Both said that God showers great blessing on those who like and love children. They said that in the mosques children should not be pushed rudely to the back row.
They said that children learn most from observation i.e. from what we do and not from what we keep saying and which they mostly ignore.
What I have seen is that because of so-called Mullah’s wrong propagation of Islam, which is suited to their vested interests, people are being misguided and suffering.
In the families people have been divided and keep fighting with each other on petty religious and social issues. They even hate each other. The so-called mullah’s and others take full advantage of this.
As regards sufism, only few Muslims understand it. There are so many spiritual groups and schools of thought that Muslims as a result of brainwashing are totally confused. Ninety percent of them have become prey and slaves of the cut-mullahs.
Unfortunately, they are fast drifting away from Allah, Quran and true Islam. It has become like a fish market. All of them run after one thing: Money in any shape. In the Muslim World over ninety persons of Muslims are poor and helpless while the cut-mullahs have become millionaires and billionaires.
This is how they are serving Islam. Look at the lifestyles of prophets, their companions, saints and pious person all of whom lived a very simple life. They never went after money but served humanity in reality. It is not difficult to recognize the good and bad religious and spiritual leaders. Those who seek the path of those who were blessed by God are the true believers and followers. This is what Surah Fateha (Chapter one) says. The others belong to the group which suffered the wrath of God.
In this alarming and critical situation, Hazrat and his son’s efforts to teach and preach and create proper awareness and understanding of true Islam and the divine message of God through proper education of religion and other subjects taught in colleges and universities are a great blessing of God.
Since both the Sheikhs are highly educated and have a vision to serve and protect humanity, they are organising an educational conference in December, 2018, in Mumbai, India, where hundreds from all over the world are expected to participate.
Also since they are working on mega educational projects for which millions of dollars are required therefore they are asking people to contribute as much as possible and become a part of the projects.
