Egypt: Democracy in Peril

In an official statement issued on August 15, 2013 the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius expresses deep concern at the on-going military strife in Egypt which has imperilled a democratically elected government and has unleashed bloodshed on the streets and calls upon the international community to stand up for “justice and peace, not injustice and chaos” in these troubled times.  

Read the Official Statement below:
As the Khalifatullah of this era and the head of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International, I condemn any coup d’├ętat in Egypt – following the clashes between the military and supporters of the ousted President Mohamed Morsi – which have already caused over 2200 deaths and over 10,000 wounded. I strongly condemn the violence in Egypt. As a spiritual leader I believe in democratic values ​​and condemn any such type of revolution. Indeed Mr. Mohamed Morsi was democratically elected.

The interim president appointed by the anti-Morsi, Adly Mansour declared a state of emergency two weeks ago which will extend over a period of one month and it follows the bloodshed that took place after the intervention of forces to dislodge the pro-Morsi Islamist protesters of Cairo.

The Acting President did not fail to say that he specifically instructed the armed forces in cooperation with the police to take all necessary measures to maintain security and order and protect public and private property of the citizens. These actions were strongly condemned by the international community. The United States has even decided to get tough and even brandished the threat to revise its annual aid of $ 1.55 billion that it usually gives to Egypt. Much of the budget is usually devoted to the Egyptian military.

I ask the Mauritian government and all governments around the world to take a strong stand against the military coup and publicize this position internationally.

I also condemn the silence of the UN and international opinion which would have acted if such an event would have occurred in Africa or in Latino America. Mr. Mohamed Morsi must not only be released but also regain his presidential status. I also condemn the massacre which took place on 14 August, causing 1000 deaths and thousands injured.

I want to raise everyone’s awareness about the “double standard” of the U.S. authorities and ask the Mauritian population not to support their actions. If the spoken language is democratic, then the action must also be democratic. The Egyptian people elected a man, its worldly representative, then why the world insists on closing the mouth of democracy in Egypt? Democracy is not restricted to a country, but is for all countries that promotes freedom of expression and the human rights of their citizens. If the Egyptian people decided who will be its president, then the world should respect its decision. How the U.S. would feel if after electing its man to hold seat in government, a coup d’├ętat is done by an external or even internal group and steals its sovereignty from the hands of the Americans to choose whom they want to elect?

Then the citizens of Mauritius, U.S., Egypt and the world must think before it is too late for the culprits and their associates. Humanitarian aid is an act of kindness for God and for peace between countries, not to make slaves and victims of blackmail! If the intention is dirty, then the consequences of the guilty will be very serious. Give up, O ye guilty to scheming to control the world your way. Guard the part of the territories that were given to you for a limited time. Do not go beyond limit for then the wrath of God will come upon you.

America and the American President are moving beyond the bounds in their thoughts and actions. If the malicious thinks he will be safe, then let him remove from the head this idea for soon the Almighty God of heaven and earth will seize him and shall inflict upon him the punishment he deserves. Then, O you who are gifted with two eyes and two ears, do justice and peace, not injustice and chaos. You are only temporary on this earth, and one day will come when you will be back before the Creator to make specific and severe accounts on your stupid and selfish and satanic thoughts, such thoughts that prevent you from restoring peace between your brothers of the human race, wherever they are.

'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. Then, surely, you will be questioned that day about the delights (which you used to enjoy on this earth).
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.
