The War Within Islam: Niyaz Fatehpuri’s Struggle Against The Fundamentalists by JUHI SHAHIN

Excerpts from a newly published book in Pakistan: The War Within Islam: Niyaz Fatehpuri’s Struggle Against The Fundamentalists


Late. Allama Niyaz Fatehpuri [1884-1966]


Dear Sultan Sahab,

For those who are worried about somebody else's Faith and that too about the Faith of those who are Kalima Reciting Muslims. For the satisfaction of those who are more worried for the Faith and Salvation [Eman aur Bakhsish] of Allama Niyaz then their ownselves.

More Details on Alleged Kaafir - Late Allama Niyaz Fathepuri {May Allah have mercy on his soul} from Rohailkhand original name Niaz Ahmed Khan [Had been a Police Inspector in Indian Police Service before partition]

I met today [20:00 hours dated 12-03-09] with the Brother In Law of Late Allama Niyaz Fatehpuri {May Allah have mercy on his soul} who is a Retired Electrical Engineer of Pakistan International Airlines - PIA and permanently settled in Canada and is on a temporary visit in Pakistan. He is around 80 years old and told me very clearly that he and Late Allama Niyaz Fatehpuri [May Allah have mercy on his soul] used to go together to the Mosque for offerring Friday Prayers and Eid Prayers [when Allama used to live in Nazimabad - Karachi - Sindh].

Love Sonnets of Ghalib by Sarfaraz K. Niazi s/o Allama Niyaz Fatehpuri

Sarfaraz's son Omayr is also a PhD and in USA.

Whoever offers prayers as we do and turns his face to our Qiblah and eats the animal slaughtered by us, he is a Muslim for whom is the covenant of Allah and the covenant of the Messenger of Allah; so do not violate Allah's covenant." [Sahih Bukhari]

``Ibn Umar related that the Holy Prophet said: If a Muslim calls another kafir, then if he is a kafir let it be so; otherwise, he [the caller] is himself a kafir.''(Sunnan Abu Dawood)

``Abu Zarr reported that the Holy Prophet said: No man accuses another man of being a sinner, or of being a kafir, but it reflects back on him if the other is not as he called him.''(Bukhari)

``Withhold [your tongues] from those who say `There is no god but Allah' --- do not call them kafir. Whoever calls a reciter of `There is no god but Allah' as a kafir, is nearer to being a kafir himself.'' (Tabarani, reported from Abdullah Ibn Omar)

If the above Hadiths do not satisfy then read this!

Usaamah bin Zaid reported,

“Allaah’s Messenger sent us towards Al-Huruqa, and in the morning we attacked them and defeated them. I and an Ansari man followed a man from among them and when we overwhelmed him, he said, “La ilaha illal-Lah.” On hearing that, the Ansari man stopped, but I killed him by stabbing him with my spear. When we returned, the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) came to know about that and he said:

"O Usaamah! Did you kill him after he had said “La ilaha ilal-Lah?” I said, “But he said so only to save himself.” He kept on repeating that so often that I wished I had not embraced Islaam before that day. [Agreed upon, and this is the wording of Bukhari]

and in another version in Sahih Muslim about the same incident:

``Did you tear open his heart to see what was in it?'' [Muslim]
