Signs and shrines of Prophets and Righteous are respectable: Moosavi
By: Salman Alvi
RAWALPINDI, November 30: Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, chief of the Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan has said that signs and shrines of Prophets, Righteous men and Bazurgan-e-Deen are respectable by which freshness in remembrance of Allah is created.
He was talking to office-bearers of Youm-e-Inhidam Jannatul Baqee (Day of Demolition of Janna-tul-Baqee) Committee who called on him at the head of its Markazi Convener Al-Haaj Ghulam Murtaza Chauhan here on Sunday. He said Prophets and Messengers were sent to guide the humanity and the objective of their Be’sat and life had been promotion of religion.
The TNFJ chief said from Hazrat Adam (A.S.) to Khatam-ul-Mursaleen (SAW) the only religion was Islam, however, there were five Shariats i.e. of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesusa and Muhammadan. He said all Shariats have been cancelled and there remains only and only Shariat-e-Muhammadi and the world of humanity is bound to follow the same.
He said like religion and Shariat are respectable, similarly shrines and Sha’a’ir of Representatives of Allah are also respectable and their visit enlightens the hearts of all therefore there is a Hadis in Sunan ibne Maja that goes: Do ziarat (visit) of graves, these remind you of the D-day. He said the Holy Prophet (SAW) said: Whosoever offered ziarat of my grave after my ‘Rehlat’ (Expiry), it is like he offered my ziarat during my life-time. That is why, he said, the live nations respect the signs of their Mashaheer (heroes).
Agha Moosavi made it clear that Islam considers the respect of Aulia and Saleheen as obligatory that is why shrines of Aulia-e-Karam in Muslim States are still Marja-e-Khala’iq. He said heavy rush of zaireen (visitors) from all around the world could be seen at the tomb of Imam Shafaee in Egypt, of Imam Malik in Madinah Munawwarah, of Imam Abu Hanifa and Ahmed bin Hanbal in Baghdad. He said if the respect of A’aimma Arba’a is that much then why not the shrines of their Aqa and Maula (Master), who lost all they had for religion, would be respectable.
He said in the fifth volume of Tafseer-durr-e-Mansor, the Tafseer of Ayah “Fi Bayout Azn Allah” it is mentioned that the Holy Prophet (SAW) said: the homes of my Ahle Bait (A.S.) are more respectable than other homes, God has given them height, and given permission and izn to do Zikr-e-Khuda in these homes. Therefore, he said Muslims are under the obligation to respect them, offer prayers and Munajaat in these homes. He said as the Ayah is “mutlaq” therefore the respect and dignity of their shrines is also binding on them after their life span.
The TNFJ chief said Youm-e-Inhidam Jannatul Baqee is being observed throughout Pakistan on 8th Shawwal-ul-Mukarram with due religious fervour and spirit. He said as motherland Pakistan came into being in the name of Islam, therefore, it is the habit of Muslims not only to remember Allah, Sha’a’ir-Ullah, Prophets and Messengers but also increase its intensity. He said in it lay the honour of the Islamic World and survival and development of the nation and the Millat.
Central Convener of the Youm-e-Inhidam Jannatul Baqee Committee of the TNFJ, Al-Haaj Ghulam Murtaza Chauhan while presenting report about programmes to be held on Shawwal 8 throughout the country, told Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi that letters have been sent to President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, Prime Minister Jamali, Federal Interior Minister and all the four provincial governments including the high-ups of Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas to ensure law and order during meetings and rallies to be taken out on the occasion of Youm-e-Inhidam-e-Jannatul Baqee.
