Misdeed in the name of Nationalism
The forbidden near God is the bounded nationalism and the nationalistic fervour, but man considered him a prided national and lived in a carved out boundary from out of the God’s bounty that was given to him in the shape of a planet that was living and breathing out oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen which the man shared but not the territories of the planet that he divided. He carved out lands demarcated it and shielded it and grabbed other’s carved land and killed others.
Nationalism – God considered valid, when it was one whole national entity representing the entire of the world and not the pouches of territories in the world, but nationalism standing for one universal country. That was the nationalism acceptable to God and so was the God’s wish. But the world divided and boundaries created to give rise to nationalism and it was protected and fought for. It suited the parochial mind fallen apart from the God’s design and man conceiving of nationalism most valid where a privileged some ruled the larger numbers. But God’s desire was man lived by forming clans and tribes to develop competitive ethnicity and not the cordoned nationalism and he was not allowed to form separate compartmental lands and trampling other’s rights for nationalistic glorification, squashing others and if not squashing others then the least folly he did was not to consider others, brothers, but enemy and foreign.
The nationalism so formed, formulated laws not to recognise other’s rights, within the bounded domains created by them. The wisdom was that only tribes and clans were created to form different languages to express from various angles the philosophy of creation and create words of expressions and enrich each other with wisdom, manners and thoughts rather than hurt each other with nationalism.
But surpassing that Wisdom they created nationalism, passport, visas, the green card, the Iqama - the timed stay permit, money laundering, corruption, insecurity, all off shoot of nationalism. Whereas man was born free not tied with taboos and he destined to be citizen of the world. But he was not allowed to be citizen of the next door neighbour country. He was not allowed to live there alive, but if he died he was allowed to be buried there and live there as dead.
Nationalism induced nations and tribes to wage war and produce atomic bomb and it allowed the bomb dropped on human alive below. Seeing and knowing they are going to be killed in next minutes. The crime, the brutality, the atrocity all legitimised by nationalism and heightened, and the selective society considered a right of the privileged to owning the bomb. The split in the religion was pampered by the drive of the nationalism. The Wahabism was built against Shiaism since it was going to flatten the religion they had built if they left their creation exposed and unprotected and it was the Shia ideological terms and the ideological strength they were afraid of. So they spent millions on its protection raising armies of terrorist in Fata, Waziristan and Swat and paid to the cleric mercenaries to be their first line of defence to protect their kingdom and their carved out religion. Zakir Naik says:
“If Osama Bin Laden is terrorising the enemies of Islam, I am with him. If he is terrorising America, the biggest terrorist, then I am with him. Every Muslim should be a terrorist.”
This perverted teaching, ‘every Muslim should be a terrorist’ is because of the ruinous effect of nationalism. And this nationalism was so narrow minded in scopes of vision that it cut the flesh and bones of its own kind of people in its own country. It was nationalism springing from their kind of religion that induced them to suicide bomb peaceful procession of Muharram in Karachi in December 2009. The nationalism permitted bombing since they were people of a different faith and religion to them. And the nationalism is so deeply entrenched in them that Zakir Naik calls tyrant and accursed Yazid, ‘Razi Allah’ – God is in consonant with him, in other words demanding from God to be in consonance with a terrorist and murderer. Zakir Naik presents this acerbity as preacher and reformist because he does not know the basic quality of God that He does not side with tyrant and can never be in consonance with Yazid for him to be called Razi Allah. In fact he was already sent and left to perish between the columns of fire in the Hell, where perhaps Naik would like to go and give his greetings and salutations to him there, but this bond he wants built with Yazid will be broken. The Aayet 2.166 says:
When the leaders will be getting rid of their followers and will see punishment (with their eyes) and the mutual bond between them will be broken.
According to this Aayet Yazid will refuse to recognise Naik although he lavishes Yazid with titles of Razi Allah Anho, and though Naik is announcing and accepting Yazid as his leader and Imam, but Yazid will dump Naik. Therefore by calling Yazid Razi Allah Anho, Naik is in loss in this world as he is being condemned and cursed by the God fearing and also in loss in the other world where he will receive such treatment from Yazid as will dampen his already shrunk and fouled spirit. For Yazid will find his sin alone enough, talk less of Naik’s burden of sin to be thrown on his neck. And Naik a poor victim of fallacious thinking has only the infected mind of a doctor who betrayed his profession and betrayed the grandson Imam Husain Als, of the Prophet SAWW whose love he professes, just as his predecessor Dr Israr Ahmad did, who died on the 13th of April and he must be experiencing the agony the way he died and that was because he called Imam Husain Als not a Shaheed.
No one was beside his death bed to recite Surah Yaseen, while he was dying and he died in the night on his own, deprived of the beneficence of the Surah and since he was a Wahabi in faith, he will never be blessed with the recital of Surah Fateha, because the Wahabis detest to be recited on with this Aayet over their dead body after they are dead. And all this Naik knows since he is a deep down Wahabi though when born in Bombay, from his parent’s will he was a moderate Sunni. But two things turned him into a Pariah, one the failure in his profession, when he had to switch over to another profession to amass wealth through preaching and the second the thanklessness to Allah and his Messenger SAWW since he will not act on the Prophet’s Hadees-e Saqlaain – ‘the tradition of two heavy objects’ – one the Quran and the other the Itrati - the Ahlebaait, which the Prophet SAWW said is leaving behind to be followed by the Muslims, not only one but either. He is not following the Prophet’s Itrart – the twelve Imams – the first of who are Ali and the last Imam Mehdi Als.
The doctors in their course of study cram a lot of subjects and this gives some impetus to the cells of their brains, increasing their memory strength, but their knowledge remains just as shallow as the size of the individual’s brain. And the worst of them like, Dr Israr Ahmad, Dr Zakir Naik and Dr Shahid Masood of Geo TV, turn to brassily befooling the masses through implanting them into an imposter, posing that they know whereas they did not know. Dr Shahid Masood praises Dr Israr Ahmad and Dr Israr Ahmad says the word ‘Shaheed’ did not exist in Quran in the TV talk with Dr Kalb-e Sadiq. And says Imam Husain Als was not a martyr, he was a slain person. Dr Kalb-e Sadiq who is a PhD said there was this word in Quran and if Israr Ahmad was an Aalim, he should have known that every wet and dry is present in the Quran. The word Shaheed is present in Aayet 41.53. And to stop the abuse of the title of Dr by such rogues as above, the doctors of medicine should be called ‘Prescribers’ and the PhDs among them Dr Prescribers. They should abandon the prestigious title which is being freely abused by these miscreants.
The Saudis had a windfall of wealth from the black gold emerging from earth and they held on to it to strengthen their kingdom and spend on the protection of their created religion Wahabism and on running a kingdom which was not approved by God. The wealth God gave was for the welfare of the people, which they spent illegitimately on their whims and they were embezzlers. Bill Gate when he got the windfall of 42 billion in wealth accumulation unlike the Saudis he gave more than half of that money, 28 billion in charity for the welfare of the people. And his religion was that many times better than that of the pool of the clergies of the Wahabis who do not send Salawat on the ‘Itrati’ - the Prophet SAWW’s progenies. They only ran to control and evolve some ethics what was deception and hypocrisy that allowed financing the terrorists through the wealth given to the state by God the Owner of all wealth.
The Saudi Nationalism has so devised the religion cut for the Saudis that there is no room for another religion especially the Shias to practice their religion and exist in that country. They cannot pray in the open in mosques they build, which is demolished. They cannot take out Moharram processions on the streets which are banned. They cannot hold Majlis inside their houses which are monitored, disrupted and the sponsors deported. The Shias cannot bring in Saudi Arabia their printed books on their religion which is banned. They cannot even bring Quran with translation which is not approved by the Wahabis. And the height in ingratitude they show to the very Prophet with whom they profess allegiance, they claim, they demolish the canopy on the grave of his only daughter Bibi Fatimah Zehra SUA in the graveyard of the Jannat al Baqi, which is a stone’s throw from the Mausoleum of the Prophet SAWW. And not only that they disallow the devotees and the pilgrims to go near to her grave with her Imam sons reposed beside her. That far in nationalism they have gone, restricting, restricting and restricting the freedom of human born.
Every freedom loving man must revolt against these unprincipled highhanded artificiality and obnoxiousness in nationalism and demolish this system, which is challenging Gods edict and injunctions. The world is for all, not only for the ethically weaker but them challenging the world for being stronger militarily, subduing and crushing the weaker. The protection to Israel by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and America is done knowingly to serve and pamper the disease of nationalism as it suits them and they want it to take it further to their national zenith and it suits the Saudis most.
And if ever any nation practiced the nationalism to the extreme it was Israel the bad egg. And if ever any city and place treated the people with equality and without apostate to nationalism, it was the confines of the Rauzas – the shrines of the Imams of the Aehlebaait. All nations were welcome at each of these Rauzas, the Israelis, the Buddhists, and the Hindus. There is no Najis, no Pak – no unclean Kafir, no pious angel and highest among them in these courts was the Moaddat – the love count that mattered in these courts. And all are drenched in the love of the Imams who go there because the basis of the pilgrimage is humanity not religion and they pay their homage to the Imams for their Godliness, purity, piousness, knowledge and impeccable character. The soul is free to rise to purity and to sublimity, once it is sharing the environment of the piety of the Imams’ closeness and sensing the purity that is prevalent there.
But there was only one advantage of nationalism; if it was not for nationalism we will not have English, the language taking the form of the universal language as it is now, but unfortunately with its defects of not having sound in its phonetics of Kh, soft t, hard r and such more and the conceptual limitation in the expression of ideas and feelings. They should have long opened the doors of syntax and grammar though to take in words foreign to it coming from Persian the court dominating language for centuries and the Arabic the holy language in which the wisdom - the Holy Quran descended. And the language remains handicapped with the shortages of words of deeper meanings and of extrapolations, because the islanders neither had need to feel nor given to feel nor exposed themselves to feel what and how could be felt in warmer climates. No extent of verbosity could cover the meaning of the word Al-Kausar in the English language.
They had a great religion given to them by the God’s second most important Prophet, which they dressed up to fit to their rituals and even accepted pictures of the Prophet which was not like the Prophet but an imagined creation of their mind. And all this was the product of parochial and limiting nationalism. And what was needed was a universal one mass of a country – all one National, all out to embrace the defined Nationalism from God, and there was to be no passport in the world, and only worldwide brotherhood and freedom and no theft and no robbery since the needs should have all shrunk and become not existent.
It was nationalism that created parochial like Nawaz Sharif with the slogans ‘Jag Punjabi Jag’ wake up Punjabi wake up or Pervez Musharraf raising the slogan, though at a slightly liberal scale ‘Pahlay Pakistan’, or the self-deceiving slogan of ‘Rule Britannia and Britannia rules the waves’ (the world), by the British nationalistic party, or the National Anthems of the countries sung with that nauseam intolerably intolerable. No Prophet of the world whether Vedic or Chinese or Judaist or Arabic or Persian or Indian, with edicts and motto: Krishna righteousness to be fought for, Lao Tzu wisdom to be made the rule, Moosa Als Godliness to be established, Mohammad SAWW faultless life style to be evolved, Zoroaster monotheism to be carried forward ever sang a National Anthem. It was a Bidat – not done in the history of God sent civilisations. But still for the preservation of these national anthems armies were kept, and if two legged crossed the borders they protected, the orders were given to shoot and kill.
