Jihad & New Technology

In every age, the dissemination of information about the message of Allah take place through different mediums of communication which are available at that point of time in history. In our times, the message of Allah is spreading all round the world through the medium of internet. It is indeed a sign of the veracity of the Messenger of Allah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib of Mauritius. In a recent speech, the Khalifatullah observed:   

By the grace of Allah, in our present times, Allah has made it that His message goes through a website which is viewed round the world. There was a divine wisdom in the past with the institution of the MTA (Muslim Television Ahmadiyya), but now Allah has wanted to make the message of His Messenger to go round the world through a website. Therefore with very limited means (and cost), the message of Allah is going round the world. And this is one of the signs of the veracity of the Messenger of Allah (his humble self) in this era.

The website as a means to pass on the message of Allah is even more sophisticated than the MTA (and quicker to pass on the Divine Message), compared to the times of the Promised Messiah (as). Through this website, all sorts of Deen works are being done- all kinds of Jihad are being fought through Open Letters, Refutations, Mubahala, Speeches (Written & Audio) and Books.

Therefore, “Jihad is not only with the pen, not only verbally, but also through the website, with the challenges, refutations etc… There is a time when revelation pours down from the Heavens, there is a time when one (the Messenger) has to take the pen (to refute and pass on the message), and there is also a time when armament also shall be taken… all in their time.”

Like we are learning from the battles waged in Islam (when enemies attacked the Muslims or prepared rebellion against Islam, then we have to bear in mind as a Sahih al Islam, we must prepare ourselves for all eventually. “I don’t know if you have this fact in mind, that there is a resemblance of what we are going through and what we shall have to go through to what the Holy Prophet (sa) had to go through in the past. This era shall resemble to a large extent the era of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa).”

Long ago, there was the need to assemble large armies to finish the Prophet of Allah and his disciples, but now we are in an era of high technology and any evil-plot can be made in the blink of an eye (through mobile, internet, all kinds of sophisticated armaments). So, we must bear in mind we shall go through all sorts of persecutions, and all sorts of spying be done on the Prophet of Allah (to plan to kill him), but we must keep strong faith in Allah so as to be able to go through it all. Long ago, messages given by the caliphs to the Muslim armies used to take days before reaching them but now every facility is available to obtain messages and required information. In other words “Technology has reached its peak”. 

Moreover, nowadays, enemies of Islam use another strategy. They do not come outright as enemies, but they mask as friends and plot in secret to divide Muslims (by igniting the fire of hatred), and make them fight among themselves; dividing among themselves, split in several sects. But Muslims are being severely tried and punished by Allah firsthand because they have been given everything in perfection: Perfect teachings (the Quran), Perfect Prophet, Perfect Religion, yet they have let go of the thread of unity and Islam (submission to one God) and go beyond the limits of Islam. As for the infidels, the idol-worshippers, Allah has already decreed that Shirk is that abominable sin which He shall not forgive.

'Surah Al- Fil': A Commentary

Holy Qur'an, Chapter 105: Al-Fil
1. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 2. Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with the companions (i.e., owners) of the elephant? 3. Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray? 4. And He sent against them Birds in flocks, 5. Striking them with stones of hard-baked clay. 6. Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw, (of which the crops) has been eaten up.
The Fate of Hubris: A Lesson from History
This Surah was revealed at Mecca in the early days of the prophethood of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). It speaks about the event that took place in the year of the birth of the Holy Prophet (saws), around the year 570 of the Christian calendar.Yemen at that time was under the control of the Abyssinians who were Christians and the latter had driven out the Jewish government that was in power at that time. Abraha Al-Ashram was the governor or Viceroy of Abyssinia. The thirst for power led him to self-proclaim himself king…

Significance of Surah Al Fatiha

... I have chosen to talk/explain today on a never-ending subject. I can say that if the ocean was ink and all trees in this world and the universe were pens and the sky and earth were papers, therefore all these would have come to an end but not the commentary of the Surah Al-Fatiha. This is because of the high importance of this chapter in the life of a believer, and this chapter is the first chapter of the Holy Quran. It is so important that one has to start with the Surah Al-Fatiha when he begins his prayer (Namaz/Salat). And to start supplications (duahs) to Allah, the Surah Al-Fatiha needs to be recited first. This is because of the nature of its greatness as a chapter and duah. In whatever situation a person may be, be it a difficulty, an illness or a state of suffering or any other problems he finds himself in, therefore he needs to recite the Surah Al-Fatiha.
By the grace of Allah, today 22nd August 2014, I have thought about explaining a bit again on this very important chap…

'Surah Al-Takathur': A Commentary

1. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 2. The race for (an increase in) wealth distracts you 3. until you visit the graves. 4. But no! You will soon know! 5. Again, You will soon know! 6. No! If you only knew with knowledge of certainty... 7. You will certainly see the Furnace. 8. Then you will certainly see it, with the eye of certainty. 9.

Competing for More
This chapter, Surah At-Takaathur (Ch.102) - Cupidity (i.e., the desire to have more and more) contains a warning to those who wish to possess everything, those who like to accumulate wealth.
Verse 2:‘Alhaakumut-Takaathuur - The race for (an increase in) wealth distracts you;
This fanaticism to acquire wealth and to increase one's fortune, position, the number of one's adherents, disciples or supporters, mass production or organization, affects not only one person but Societies and Nations.
