Salam  
 
According to Mu’awiyah, five daily supplications, funeral prayers, incantation of Dua, and celebration of Eid were alien rituals for the Muslim Ummah, until 672 AD. However, during the reign of Ziyad -Ibn-Zanad [in the time of Umayyad Caliph], governor of Iraq in 672 AD, it surfced that a sect known as Sabaean, the flowers of Prophet Idress, were carrying on the five or seven daily prayers, Darood and Salam, Eid celebration, and many others rituals. During the reign of Abbasid Dynasty [strict autocracy in the garb of caliphate] extended over five centuries [750-1258 A.D.], the Iranian influence was at its zenith, both in the court and the harems of the royals. The caliphs gave them a free hand to do whatever they liked, on the proviso to make their lives easier in return. Under the circumstances, the administrative and the economic system of Sallat and Zakah were stamped out completely, paving the way for the autocratic rule. The Muslim priesthood, especially, the Sunni and Shi’ah Aimmah did the dirty work for the caliphs [Muslim kings] by introducing most outrageous religious ritual, Nimaz. They transmuted the governmental concept of Sallat into five daily supplications, a mode of worship that was very popular among the Zoroastrians, who regularly practiced it to make their god Yasdah happy. Strangely enough, the Muslim Ummah is doing the same for the last millennium.  
 
The followers of prince Agha Khan [Agha Khani Cult] and Ahal-e-Qur’an sect of Pakistan follow the schedule of three daily supplications. This was the traditional Zoroastrian practice of worshipping their Min and Yasdah gods, three times per day, which the Muslims straightforwardly copied. It is interesting to note that the specific prayer routine pursued by Sunni, Wahabi, Shi’ah, Agha Khani, Ahl-e-Qur’an Ahamadi and many other sects are remarkably different from one other. However, all of them carry on such nefarious activities in the name of Allah, perhaps to justify the existence of their religious franchises, though by doing so; they rip apart the unity of Muslim Ummah, which is the basic memorandum of the Qur’an.The Zoroastrian ritual of supplication was unknown in the life and time of Mohammad, and his stalwart male and female comrades. That is why they never adopted that ridiculous religious rite, which made in roads in the life style of Muslims almost three centuries, after their departure from this world. The fact remains, the addition of this alien element in the daily routine of Muslims came because of a deadly conspiracy hatched by the Iranian Aimmah [plural of Imam or leader, especially religious], against Allah, Mohammad and the Qur’an.  
 
Through the verse 2:62, the Qur’an enlightens the entire humanity; there are no magic pills, potions or plans to solve local, regional and world problems. On the contrary, it requires strenuous constant, consistence and continued efforts with the guidance of the divine directives, to maintain peace, prosperity or progress in the world, and to eliminate the environment of fear, uncertainty, and hopelessness, upon which all global Religions thrive.  
 
‘If all communities on this planet try to implement Allah’s constitution, accepting His sovereignty only, along with taking right steps to achieve excellent results, for the present and the future generations, then their struggle shall be amply rewarded. They shall receive their gifts, in both worlds, in the form of peaceful, contented,  
happy and safe living. Such a society shall be free from all kinds of trepidations, worries, insecurities and isolation. In fact, freedom can be secured and protected, by attaining indomitable defensive deterrence through technological advancement. For instance, if an antagonist possesses excellence in the field of armament, the  
protagonist must have par excellence in the same area. Moreover, all of it must be achieved by utilizing wisdom and faculty of reasoning, provided by the Sustainer.’

Bravo for Abdullah Bashoeb. Very informative explanation about the ritual of Namaz.  
Hope Shakir Azim is enlightened.  
 
I may suggest a quick study of 'Tehqiq-e-Namaaz-o-Salaat'. Please visit www.aurangzaib.tk,  
click chapter BOOKS and you will have a detailed background, answering your all the three  
questions.

salam  
what would be your comments regarding those who say, even if there is no such namaz then what sin are we doing, plus they also claim that the salaah(namaz) did not started at the time of muhammad it was there before him and therefore Quran does not tell the way of how to offer salaah(namaz), and it is also told to us that in all the history, there is no clue that salaah(namaz) was performed differently as from now, which brings me to the next question that what is the authenticity of the explanation given by Abdullah Bashoeb to the question that was posed previously, because you said in your own site that the books written on sunnah and taffasirs are after two centuries after the death of profit??

Comments by: Maniza On 02 January 2010
Allahs Peace and Blessings to all,  
dear umair ,  
the first thing to keep in mind is that As-Salat is different from Nimaz.. as you can see it was explained that the nimaz came from the sabiens and the zoranstrains.. if we keep in the mind the Quran then Allah in His Wisdom gave the same Commands to ALL of His Messengers.. from history if you look up the zorastrains and sabiens in Wikipedia then you can read all about them and how they influenced both the Mosaic religions, tora and the bible and also the Quran with their habits of worship and their stories of dajal, coming of mehdi etc etc.. there was NO nimaz as per Quran before or at the time of the Prophets wether it was Moses, Isa or Mohammed.. the worship which the Holy Books refer to is the Establishment of Allah AlMightys Commands on earth... where tyranny, oppression, slavery etc would be eradicated by Laws which have roots in the Divine Revelation... human rights, enviromental rights and rights of animals... etc  
u say there was no clue that nimaz was performed differently; but even in the hadith books we dont have a full explanation of nimaz.. take Bukhari it does not have the whole nimaz.. and even the nimaz and how it should be performed we have differences.. people are killed if they say Ameen aloud in a masjid! where to have the hands etc etc.. then we have timings.. in these we differ.. some say its 3 times some say its 5 times..  
as for authenticity, you need to do some research,, there are many many historians that have written on the subject.. even some great people with knowledge in the Quran throughout the ages, but they were called and are even now called kafir because of what they have found out accourding to the Quran..  
see this website.. http://free-minds.org/ it has some great people of knowledge .. professors, doctors and others who have taken subjects and written articles on them.. and if you can read urdu, then dr.Qamar has his great research, avaialble free here.  
but please , please most of all read the Quran.. use your logic,, you will find that you will understand it even though it may be a shia one, brailvi one , deobandi one or wahabi one... if you use you logic maybe you will see the diamond underneath the dust of hadith translated quran.. and please if you dont then ask ask and ask ,, with an open mind, and a pure heart be a good student,, then you will learn..

Dear Shakir Azim, God bless you,  
 
I am very happy that Mr Abdulah gave answer even before I could, even compose my thoughts. His answer is a detailed one, and I dont find any reason to add to the subject from historical point of view.  
 
However I have a different approach to such questions.  
 
We have Quran in our hands. We are supposed to do only whatever is in Quran. Hence I like to research and understand Quran instead of going into fabricated stories and proving right and wrong from human  
work, which are liable to be corrupted and not without error.  
 
For the past events Quran clearly states in Sura 2 Ayat 134 &141 (after telling about prophet Ibrahim and  
others) :  
"These were the nation who have passed , for them is what they have earned and for you is what you earn, and you will not be held responsible for them."  
 
As far as history is concerned we are given relevent history in Quran to guide us to lead a peaceful life.  
I am trying to bring out whatever is being ordered without going into discrepancy of history, fiqa, tafseer,  
hadith etc. I have reserved my energies for Quran only. Thanks

Why I gave up Namaz?  
 
Long before Br. Arif posted his question or I read Dr. Shabbir’s postings on the Forum, I had some serious questions about Namaz. Why it was divided into Farz (Obligatory), Sunnah, Nafil (non-obligatory)? If we must perform Sunnah with every Farz Namaz, then what is the difference? If Nafil Namaz is non-obligatory, how come there are fixes Nafil with every Farz Namaz? Mulvi and the Namazi folks were unable to provide any satisfactory answers. At the time I had 4 different jobs that kept me busy all day. Hence, I made up for all the day’s Namaz at the end of day. My roommate Sheikh Omer, who was a tour bus driver, did the same.  
 
After reading Dr. Shabbir’s postings on the Forum, I took a more critical look at the ritual of Namaz and soon found myself in agreement with him. Here is a brief list of the problems I encountered.  
 
1. Why the term Namaz and its method are missing from the Quran?  
 
2. We are told God gave the gift of Namaz to the Prophet at Miraj (The Night of Ascension to Heaven). This story is a myth. Even if we believe the story, how can we consider Namaz as a gift from God? The Prophet went back and forth to request God to reduce the number of Namaz. Does not this show that the Namaz was a punishment, not gift. Criminals often appeal the judge to reduce their sentences. When people receive a reward or gift from higher authority, they almost never ask for a reduction. Actually, they wish more.  
 
3. It is alleged that Prophet “bargained” with God and had the number of Namaz reduced from 50 to 5. Then, why did he add his own Sunnah and Nafil Namaz? Did not Moses tell him that even 5 Namaz were too much? Can you count the number of Nafil Namaz that Muslims are encouraged to offer along with each Farz Namaz?  
 
8 Rak'ats Nafil for Zuhr  
8 Rak'ats Nafil for Asr  
4 Rak'ats Nafil for Maghrib  
2 Rak'ats Nafil for Isha  
11 Rak'ats Nafil for Tahajjud (Namaz-e-Shab)  
2 Rak'ats Nafil for Fajr  
Some Mulvis offer Tahajjud in the Masjid same like a Farz Namaz. That is why I included it in the above list. Here are other Nafil Namaz that “Devote Muslims” offer between Farz Namaz or on other occasions.  
 
Namaz-e-Ishraq (12 minutes after sunrise)  
Namaz-e-al-Duha (20 minutes after sunrise)  
Namaz-e-Chasht (Before Namaz Zuhr) Namaz-e-Awwaabeen (Between Maghrib & Isha)  
Namaz-e-Mayyit  
Namaz-e-Wahshat  
Namaz-e-Istikharah  
Namaz-e-Ayaat  
The last one is considered obligatory whenever someone witnesses sun/moon eclipse, lightning, thunder, earthquake, hurricane, tornado, typhoon, or any other natural disaster.  
 
4. Nobody seems to take Namaz as training to help Muslims improve their lives. Rather it is used as a means to earn rewards and wipe out past sins. How do you know God Almighty will reward you for performing ritual Namaz? Where is the proof that Namaz erases past sins?  
 
5. God promised paradise to those who die fighting for His cause. But our Imams tell us that a fighter must perform 5 obligatory Namaz even at the battlefield. Why is Namaz so important that you cannot miss it even at the height of a battle? If it were training, nobody does any training during the war. In the battlefield the fighters are supposed to apply their training and skills. Moreover, Namaz can put the lives of Muslim fighters at risk. Do you think enemy will respect their Namaz times and stop fighting? In war the other party looks for any weakness in the enemy and tries to exploit it. Namaz places Muslim fighters at great disadvantage against their enemies.  
 
6. If Masjid is 15 miles away from your home, you have to make a 30 miles trip to perform each Namaz. You will be travelling 150 miles daily. Most cars run less than 300 miles on full tank. You will have to fill the gas tank every 2nd or 3rd day. If you are barely making ends meet, how will you handle the extra costs? Does not God claim that he wants ease for you, not hardship?  
 
7. Those receiving rewards from God Almighty for their noble character and actions are listed in the Quran. Did God forget to include Namazi and Rozadar? If you like, I can post a list of verses that clearly name those who will receive immense rewards from God Almighty.  
 
8. Sure we cannot see God. But we have His book the Quran. We can study it and learn about its Author. Also, we have the “Mighty Book of Nature” in our possession. It too tells us a lot about the Creator of our Universe and everything in it. What picture of God do these books paint? The God I see does not seem to care about any rituals of worship. But He, definitely, cares for our welfare. That is why He sent down the Quran, Guidance for All Humanity for All Times. Instead of indulging in empty rituals, we can earn God’s pleasure as well as enormous rewards by seeking guidance from His Book, doing what is Commanded, and refraining from what is forbidden. That is the sure way to achieve peace, security, and prosperity.  
 
9. I came from a family that followed Bralvi sect. I left it and became what people call Wahabi. Next, I left Wahabi sect too. You see I discarded not one but two man- made Mazahab without any regrets. Hence, I had no problem leaving Namaz as soon as I realized it was non-Quranic ritual.  
 
10. When I performed Namaz five times a day, I suffered from the same ills the blind followers of Mullah suffer everywhere today. Since I abandoned Namaz and started living my life according to the teachings of the Quran, I have been free of those ills. Now I enjoy my life to the fullest.

What is the role of Masjid?  
 
In my humble view the Exalted Prophet Muhammad laid out the foundation for the Golden Era of Islam. He was not only God’s Prophet but also the Chief Administrator, Commander-in-Chief, and Chief Justice of the first Islamic State set up in Medina. Hence, Masjid served as the Prophet’s Office, Parliament, Courthouse, and Headquarters for the Army. All state affairs were discussed and decisions made in the Masjid. It was not a house of worship. The Prophet and his companions were busy building the first Islamic State. They did not have time for rituals, such as Namaz and Roza. How did I come to this conclusion? Please keep reading.  
 
We can find answers and solve even complex problems by employing our abilities of reasoning and inference. As a matter of fact the golden era of discoveries and inventions began when learned people in Europe started applying logic or reason to solve problems. This was the same route early Muslims had taken centuries ago. Many Western intellectuals acknowledge that Arab Muslims not only translated and preserved the works of Greeks but they also built upon the ancient knowledge and contributed immensely to advance sciences. Once upon a time the international language was Arabic. Students from all over the world travelled to Islamic countries to seek knowledge. And teachers who knew Arabic were in high demand even in Europe. Doubtless, it was Prophet Muhammad who set early Muslims on the path of learning, discoveries, and inventions. If early Muslims were just Namazi and Rozadar, the world would have never witnessed the Golden Age of Islam. Then, what went wrong?  
 
Regrettably, later “Muslims” took the opposite direction under the influence and misguidance of Ghazali and company. Ghazali and his followers declared Mathematics, Physics, and other sciences worthless and discouraged people from studying them. Instead they introduced Darse-Nizami whose syllabus is confined to teaching Nahw, Tafseer, Fiqh, Balagah, Mantiq, and Hadith. Also, these Imams forced Muslims to wear this heavy albatross (Namaz, Roza, and other non-Quranic rituals and beliefs) around their necks. As a result Muslims stopped being productive.  
 
You can check your local library and Internet to learn more about the Golden Age of Islam as well as the Renaissance and the Enlightenment Eras of Europe.  
 
As far as I understand only real Muslims can implement Salat provided that they are in power in the state where they try implementing Salat. To understand the real meaning of the Salat, please read Brother Dr. Qamar Zaman’s book “Haqiqat Salat” online. Here is the website address.

Dear Qamar Saab,  
I congratulate you for successfully taking the relay baton from Parvez saab into a more dynamic, logical level. At this juncture pls clarify "wahi". How it happens? If it had happened before why not now? Give a logical explanation, because when we talk about other religions we use our intellect barometer and thrash their beliefs but when it is our turn you know what stand we take.......

Bravo for dear Zubair's detailed comments on Namaaz and Masaajid. Best wishes and congratulations.  
 
For Dr. Qamar Sahib.  
Please would you elaborate the meanings and definition of 'Masjid-e-Zaraar' and the perspective in which this term was very wisely used by the Almighty? Thanks in advance.

Dear Brothers,  
I am thankful to all those who have written very logically on 'Namaaz' but still I find something very good in practising the 'namaaz', I dont know why but it gives me peace and a time to think for ourselves and the existance of the Almighty. Such gathering like Namaaz on Friday and Eid, give us feeling of togetherness and unity and this is required to live in any society.  
 
Janab Qamar Sb, I have read all your books , really these are very different from the writings of our great 'Ulemaas'.  
I could not get it why there is so much difference? What you have written is according to the translation of the Quran made by you. How a simple muslim like me, who doesn't know Arabic just know how to read it to gain 'sawab' ,can judge the translation? There are many translations available in the market. I have gone through many tarjumaas. All are same just miner difference may be found, but what you write is totally different. That means all are wrong or couldn't get the meaning but you got it? How??? Please don't mind it. I respect writers but cannot accept anything blindly. It must be logical and rational and must be in accordance with the Quran (for me Quran means the translation made by our Ulema, as I cannot understand this language.) Be free to make me understand, treat me like a student of high school.

SA.What are historical sources in your research namaz introduced by Iranians?

Comments by: Zubair On 06 January 2010
Dear Brother Anis,  
First of all it is not at all difficult to find those verses. When I study the Quran, I take notes. That is how I found verses on a wide variety of topics. Anyway here are some verses from the Quran, which spell out what kind of persons deserve rewards from God Almighty both here and hereafter. In brief people who are humble, generous, steadfast in adversity or ease, do works that benefit humanity, submit to God (obey and follow God’s Commandments), avoid all vices, and live a virtuous life are promised enormous rewards.  
I selected these verses from Dr. Shabbir’s QURAN AS IT EXPLAINS ITSELF (QXP) 4TH edition. You can download whole book from the following website.  
www.ourbeacon.com.  
 
WHO DESERVE REWARDS FROM GOD?  
 
2:262 Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of God, and afterward do not follow their giving with reminders of their generosity or injure the feelings of the recipients; their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. [17:26, 30:38. The society will return their generosity in this life as well]  
2:274 Those who spend their wealth on the needy, by night and by day, secretly or publicly, have their reward with their Sustainer. They shall have nothing to fear or regret.  
2:277 Those who believe in God’s Laws, do works beneficial to the society, strive to establish the Divine Order and the Zakaat Cooperative System, have their reward with their Lord. They will have nothing to fear and no reason to be despondent.  
3:57 And those who choose to believe and work for the betterment of the society, He will pay their wages in full. But God does not love the violators of human rights.  
3:113 They are not all alike. Among the People of the Scripture are those who take a firm stand for the right cause, reflect on the revelations of God all night long and submit in adoration.  
3:114 They believe in God (as the One True God), and in the Last Day. They advocate virtue by example, and close the doors to vice by example, and try to lead in acts of collective good. Such are the ones who enrich the society, increase the human potential and thus, rectify their own ‘selves’. [Saaliheen embraces all three meanings given in the last sentence]  
3:115 Of the good they do, nothing will be rejected of them. For, God is Aware of those who live upright.  
3:132 And obey God and the Messenger (the Central Authority). That is how you will achieve the development of your ‘self’. A benevolent society helps you grow like a mother's womb nourishes the embryo. [Turhamoon from Rahm or womb = 'You may find Mercy', carries the meanings rendered in the last two sentences]  
3:133 Move forward eagerly to the tranquil security that comes from your Lord, and to the Paradise that transcends spatial boundaries, encompassing the heavens and the earth. It has already been prepared for those who live upright. [Paradise is not confined to the heavens. Like Hell, it begins right here in this world]  
3:134 The candidates to this Paradise keep their resources open for others in favorable or adverse circumstances. They divert and sublimate their anger and potentially virulent emotions to creative energy, becoming a source of tranquility and comfort to others. They pardon people gracefully. For, God loves the benefactors of humanity.  
3:135 Such men and women quickly correct any wrong or indecency that has occurred from them, by remembering the Commands of God, and thus, protecting themselves from trailing behind in humanity. And who can absolve such imperfections but God? And they know well enough to refrain from persisting in whatever (wrong or indecency) had occurred from them.  
3:136 These are the ones whose reward from their Lord is their preservation against the detrimental effects of their errors - and magnificent Gardens with streams flowing beneath, therein to abide. How excellent a reward for the sincere workers!  
3:189 Unto God belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And God, having Power over all things and events, has appointed Laws in due measure. [10:4, 34:3-4, 53:31]  
3:190 Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men and women who use their understanding.  
3:191 (Such men and women of understanding keep reflecting upon how God’s Laws operate in the Universe.) Standing, sitting, and reclining, they reflect upon the wonders of creation in the heavens and the earth, saying, "Our Lord! You have not created all this without Purpose. Glory to You! (High Above You are from creating anything in vain.) Save us, then, from (being negligent in attaining knowledge and thus from) the doom of the Fire.”  
[When humans harness the forces of Nature and use them for the common good of all, they move away from Hell, rightfully hoping to achieve Paradise in both lives. 13:17, 45:13-14]  
3:192 (Reflecting on the Universe and upon their own role on the Planet, such people work for the betterment of humanity 13:17. They say), “Our Lord! Any individuals and nations whom You admit into the Fire, You have brought them low (for failing to harness the forces of Nature)." There are no helpers for those who displace knowledge with conjecture and thus wrong themselves. [Zaalimeen translated according to the context]  
3:193 "Our Lord! We have heard a caller calling to Faith, “Believe in your Lord!” So we have believed. Our Lord! Therefore, protect us from trailing behind in humanity, blot out from us our iniquities, and let our end be in the company of those who have made room for others to advance in the society." [2:186. The caller being the Qur’an. Abraar = Those who create opportunities for others to make progress]  
3:194 “And our Lord! Grant us what You have promised to us through Your Messengers. And save us from humiliation on the Day of Resurrection. For, You never break the Promise. “ [24:55]  
3:195 Thus their Lord accepts and answers their prayer, “Indeed, I never let the work of any worker, male or female, go vain. You are members, one of another. Hence, those who emigrate, and are driven from their homelands, and suffer harm in My Cause, and fight, and are slain, I shall certainly blot out their faults, erasing the imprints of their misdeeds on their ‘self’. And certainly, I shall admit them into Gardens with streams flowing beneath - a handsome return from God's Presence. For, with God is the fairest return of actions. [2:186]  
3:198 But those who remain mindful of their Lord, for them are Gardens with streams flowing beneath, therein to abide - a Gift of Welcome from their Lord. For, with God is the best reward for those who have grown in humanity and eased the way for others.  
3:199 And behold! Among the People of the Book are some who believe in God, and in what is revealed to you, and in what was revealed to them. They humble themselves before God, and do not trade away God’s revelations for a trifling gain. Surely, their reward is with their Lord. For, behold, God is Swift in account. [3:113-114]  
3:200 O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! Persevere in patience and constancy, outdo others in steadfastness, and remain united, strengthening each other. And be mindful of God, so that you truly prosper.  
4:122 On the other hand, We shall soon admit those who attain belief, and work to improve the lot of humanity, to the Gardens beneath which rivers flow. They will abide therein forever. This is the unwavering Promise of God; and who can be truer in word than God?  
4:124 And whoever fulfills the needs of the people, whether male or female, and is a believer, will enter Paradise. And not the least injustice will be done to them (not amounting to the ‘speck on a date-stone’ 4:53, 35:13.)  
4:146 Except those who repent by returning to the Right Path and make amends and hold fast to God’s Guidance in all sincerity. Those are with the believers. God will soon grant the believers a reward of immense value.  
4:152 And those who believe in God and His messengers, in word and action, and understand that all messengers were one in Purpose, We shall soon give them their rewards. God is ever Forgiving, Merciful.  
4:162 Among them (the Jews) these are those who are well founded in knowledge. And have attained conviction in what has been revealed to you, and in what was revealed before you. They are supporters of the Divine System and of the Just Economic Order, believers in God and in the Last Day. We shall soon give them an immense reward. [Islam is for all humanity. Any prior affiliations are irrelevant. 2:62, 3:19, 4:125]  
4:173 God will give rewards and add of His Bounty on those who attain belief and contribute to the society. On the other hand, His Law of Requital will dispense an awful doom to those who were scornful and proud. And they will find no one besides God, to protect or help them.  
4:175 God will admit into His Grace those who believe in Him and hold fast to His Commands, and facilitate for them the Straight Road to Him.  
5:9 God promises the protection of forgiveness and a Great reward to those who attain belief and do works that fulfill the needs of people and increase the well being of society.  
7:35 O Children of Adam! (I had revealed in the early stages of human civilization that I will keep sending My Guidance to you 2:213.) So, when messengers of your own come to you narrating My messages, those who will live upright and mend their ways, will have nothing to fear or grieve.  
7:42 On the other hand, those who attain conviction in Divine Laws and work to augment the individual and collective potential of humanity, will succeed in attaining Paradise of their own making (3:136). We never assign goals to people that are beyond their capacity. [The Paradise of people’s own making will never be lost. It will be their heritage in the life to come. 2:25, 3:133, 55: 45-47]  
11:11 Except those who are steadfast in adversity and prosperity, and work to improve human potential. For them is the protection of forgiveness and a great reward.  
14:23 And those who attained belief and increased human potential, will be admitted to the Gardens underneath which rivers flow, therein abiding by their Lord’s Leave. Their greeting therein is, “Peace!”  
16:96 What you possess vanishes away, but what He has (and that you deposit with Him) lasts forever. We will give those who are steadfast (in their pledges) their reward in proportion to the best of their actions. [16:94. ‘Best of their actions’ indicates beyond their merit]  
16:97 Whoever, whether male or female, does works that help others and is a believer, We shall certainly cause them to live a good life, and We shall grant them the rewards considering the best of their actions.  
18:30 But, behold, as for those who attain belief and do works that help others, certainly, We never fail to reward such benefactors of humanity.  
18:31 Theirs shall be the Gardens of Eden with rivers flowing beneath. They will be adorned with bracelets of gold, and wear green robes of finest silk, brocade and velvet, reclining upon thrones of honor. What a wonderful reward, and how goodly a place to rest!  
23:57 Surely, those who are awe-inspired and conscious of their Lord,  
23:58 And have conviction in the messages of their Lord,  
23:59 And do not associate anyone with Him,  
23:60 And give (of their wealth and person), whatever they can, and are still afraid (that they have not done enough and), because they have to return to their Lord.  
23:61 It is they who race with one another to improve the quality of life for humanity, and it is they who are worthy of winning good things.  
24:52 Whoever obeys God and His Messenger, and fears violating God's Commands, and thus empowers himself against evil, such indeed are the triumphant. [See Taqwa, 2:41]  
25:15 Say, “Is this better or the Garden of Immortality which is promised to the upright? That is their reward and the ultimate destination.”  
25:63 The true servants of the Beneficent are those who walk upon the earth humbly, and when the ignorant ones address them, they say, "Peace!" [3:138, 22:41, 31:17-18]  
25:64 And who adore their Lord at night, making a rightful submission and taking a rightful stand.  
25:65 And who say, “Our Lord! Avert from us the doom of Hell, for its doom is bound to be a dire torment.”  
25:66 Surely, it is a miserable abode and station.  
25:67 And those who, when they spend their wealth, are neither wasteful, nor stingy. And (they know that) there is always middle ground between the two extremes. [2:219, 17:29]  
25:68 And those who call on no deities along with God. Nor take a life that God has forbidden except in the course of justice (through a court of Law).  
Nor do they commit adultery; and whoever does this, drags down one’s own humanity.  
25:69 The retribution on the Day of Resurrection will be doubled for him and therein He will abide in lasting humiliation.  
25:70 Except one who repents and believes in the Permanent Moral Values and takes corrective action. For such, God will replace the ill effects of their deeds with the balancing effects of good deeds. For, God is Forgiving, Merciful.  
25:71 And whoever repents and takes corrective action, certainly he turns toward God with true repentance.  
25:72 Those who: Never give false witness, do not participate in assemblies of vanity, and when they have to pass near senseless play, pass by with dignity.  
25:73 When they are reminded of (even) the revelations of their Lord, do not fall at them deaf and blind (with deaf and blind acceptance).  
25:74 And say, "Our Lord! Grant us that our spouses and children be a joy to our eyes (that they excel in character). And make us the foremost among the righteous."  
25:75 Such are the ones who will be rewarded with a high station of honor for their steadfast commitment (to their Lord). Therein they will be met with salutation and peace.  
25:76 Therein to abide. What a goodly destiny! And what a high station!  
27:89 In those times nations that do good to humanity and make way for peace and security, will be best rewarded. [21:103, 27:87]  
28:51 Indeed, We have caused this Word to reach mankind step by step, so that they might take it to their heart. [Wassalna embraces ‘step by step’]  
28:52 As for those whom We have given the Scripture before will, in time, come to believe in this one as well. [26:196-197. People of the Book that sincerely reflect on the Qur’an, will accept it]  
28:53 And whenever it is conveyed to them in the right understanding, they say, "We believe in it, for, it is the Truth from our Lord. Indeed, even before it, we have been Muslims.”  
[Tilaawah = Recitation with understanding. ‘We have been Muslims’ = We have always known that Divine Revelation alone is the Authority and we have surrendered ourselves unto God]  
28:54 These will receive a twofold reward because they persevere, counter harsh behavior in a kind manner and distribute Our provision of Guidance and sustenance among others. [13:22]  
28:67 But anyone who (in the worldly life) turns to the right path, truly believes and helps others with righteous deeds, will find himself among the successful.  
28:79 And so once he came out to his people in all his pomp. And those who cared only for the life of this world said, "Ah, we wish we had the like of what Qaroon has been given. Indeed, he is extremely fortunate."  
28:80 But those who knew better said, "Woe unto you! Merit in the Sight of God is far better for anyone who believes and works for equity among people. This reward is reserved for those who do not fall for instant gains, and work hard steadfastly.” [The real wealthy is one who believes in Divine Laws, helps the needy, and benefits the society]  
28:81 And thereupon We caused the earth to swallow him and his dwelling. And he had none and nothing to help him against God’s Laws, nor could he help himself.  
28:82 And those who had envied his position only the day before were saying the next morning, "Ah, it is indeed God Who makes the provision plenty or scarce for His servants according to His Laws. Had God not been kind to us, He could have caused the earth to swallow us! Ah! The rejecters of the Truth can never attain lasting contentment.”  
28:83 That Home of the Hereafter We shall give to those who do not seek to exalt themselves on earth, nor do they seek corruption and disorder. And the Future belongs to those who wish to live upright.  
28:84 Anyone who brings actions that benefit others, the reward to him is better than what he has done. And anyone who is unfair in his dealings with others, such will be punished, but not more than the like of what they have done.  
29:58 Whereupon to all those who have attained belief, and worked for the betterment of humanity We shall certainly assign mansions in the Garden underneath which rivers flow, therein to abide. How excellent a reward for the workers! (25:75)  
29:59 Those who are steadfast in adversity and in ease, and put their trust in their Lord.  
30:45 That He may reward out of His Bounty, those who accept the Message, and work to help others. Surely, He does not love those who refuse to acknowledge the Truth.  
33:29 “But if you desire God and His Messenger, and the Home of the Hereafter, then certainly, God has prepared for those among you who benefit humanity, an immense reward.”  
33:31 And whoever of you is devoted in the service of God and His Messenger, and helps improve the society, We shall give her reward twice over, for, We have readied for her a most excellent sustenance.  
33:35 Surely, for Muslim men and Muslim women, believing men and believing women, devoted men and devoted women, truthful men and truthful women, steadfast men and steadfast women, humble men and humble women, charitable men and charitable women, abstinent men and abstinent women (abstaining from all vices), chaste men and chaste women, men who remain mindful of God and women who remain mindful (of God), for them, God has readied forgiveness and an immense reward. [3:194, 4:124. Maghfirah = Forgiveness = Protection against detriment = Erasing the imprints of faults = Absolving imperfections]  
34:4 That He may reward those who attain belief and serve others with wealth and person, and thus grow their own ‘selves’. For them is the protection of forgiveness and honorable provision of mind and body.”  
34:37 And it is not your wealth nor your children and party that will bring you closer to Us in degree, but he who truly believes and helps others. It is they who will have a twofold reward for their deeds. And they will dwell in secure mansions. [25:75]  
35:7 For those who are bent on rejecting the Truth, is a severe retribution. And for those who accept the Truth and work for the welfare of others, is the protection of forgiveness and a great reward.

Dear Brother Aurangzaib,  
Thanks for your kind comments. Actually, I should have written to you first, as I owed you enormous gratitude as a result of reading your following books.

THE RITUAL PRAYER (NAMAAZ) AND MORE  
By Ardeshir Spencer  
 
I am a Zoroastrian. Dr. Shabbir’s research is quite right. Your NAMAAZ was stolen from Zoroastrianism by your Parsi Imams from Persia.  
It would be appropriate if we can discuss the startling similarities between some practices of Islam and Zoroastrianism. These parallels go beyond coincident. I will endeavor to enumerate a few here:  
 
01. Requirements of prayers: Islam enjoins its followers to pray 5 times a day and is called by the Muezzin to his prayers. These prayers are at i) Dawn ii) Noon iii) Afternoon iv) Sunset v) Night.  
Zoroastrianism also enjoins prayers 5 times a day called “Geh”. The devotee is summoned by the ringing of a bell in the AtashBehram / Agiary. These prayers are also at the same time as in Islam and their respective names are:  
 
Time: Islamic/ Zorastrianism  
Dawn: Fajar/ Havaan  
Noon: Zohar/ Rapithwan  
Afternoon: Asr/ Uziren  
Evening: Mazreem or Maghrib/ Aiwisuthrem  
Night time: Isha or Ishan/ Ushaen.  
 
You can read the whole article by visiting Dr. Shabbir Ahmed’s blog at following address.

For dear brother Zubair – Re. comments of Jan.6, 2010.  
I am so grateful to know that you spared valuable time to go thru my website. As for your good remarks, I would only, with thanks, highlight my humbleness as a meager student of the Almighty’s exalted message, doing my little bit in helping the discovery and dissemination of the genuine interpretations of the great Qura’n, being explored right now with strenuous effort, out of the debris of so-called-Muslim tyrants’ vested interests.  
 
Much appreciate your hard work and sincerity of purpose as evident from your detailed references in reply to brother Anis. The material will be of great value for all and especially for me in my future writings. May Allah bless you with abundant bounties in return.

Dear brother Ardeshir Spencer,  
 
I love you for being so explicit about similarities of the ritual of "Namaaz" between Zoroastrian and Muslim faiths.  
 
YOUR Namaaz was stolen not by poor ordinary Muslims, but by their despotic kings (Khulafaa') and tyrants, starting right from the Banu Umayyad period. They were non-Quranic autocratic rulers and could not go along with the duty of Establishing the System of Salaat (Iqaamat-us-Salaat), viz., following Allah's commandments in letter and spirit. It was their own exclusive duty as rulers, which they transformed into a ritual of worship, transfered it as an obligation towards common people and enforced it with the power of sword. They ruthlessly killed whoever opposed this great conspiracy. And they established a caste, creed and order of bearded clergy (Mullah) to preach, propagate and conduct this ritual and use Masaajid for this nefarious activity.  
 
Your valuable comments authenticate and corroborate the modern, enlightened Muslim scholars' conclusions.  
 
One more thing, the ritual of WUDHU, which is the pre-requisite to performing this ritual of Namaaz, has also been taken - or stolen - from the Zoroastrians. I feel ashamed while disclosing this to you.  
 
God bless you.

Dear Brother Aurangzaib,  
 
I was thinking of writing to you about the problem with opening /downloading your last two articles under the heading “EXPLANATIONS”. When clicked on them, it opened a new website with the following message.  
www.aurangzaib.co.cc has expired  
 
After I installed a “plug in” to be able to read books from AboutQuran.com, I had no problem reading your last two articles online. Once again I applaud your courage for taking a firm stand against worthless rituals and upholding the true message of the Quran. When get a chance, we will talk about Umayyad and Abbasid Periods. My understanding has been that it was the later period when Zoroastrians gained influence and their conspiracies against the Quran began. But I might be wrong.  
 
Thanks for including Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s very touching poem. I am always looking for beautiful poems. I regret not being a fan of Faiz while living in Pakistan. I was a blind follower of Mullahs, who hated him.  
 
By the way I will try to pass your message to Ardeshir Spencer via Brother Dr. Shabbir.

Dear Brother Zubair,  
Yes, I agree that there is a lot to talk about and draw comparisons among the Umayyad and Abbasid periods as most of our companions do maintain that the Ajami intrigues were the main cause of the rot, and Ajamis did become active during the Abbaside period. Most upto date research however exposes the Jews as the main conspirators who started their bloody rivalry against Islam on the very day My Lord pbuh descended in Madina as a result of his historic Hejira. The two main and influential Jewish tribes of Banu Quraizah and Banu Nuzair were directly hit by the advent of Islamic State in Medina and an endless enmity unfolded itself. On the surface, this enmity disappeared after the battles of Ahzaab and Khyber when the Jews were seen as finally subdued. However, given their understanding that they were no longer powerful enough to face the Muslims in battles, they had only changed their tactics from hot pursuit to cold and silent underground sabotage. This was manifest in Ka’ab Ahbaar, the Jewish scholar we read about moving in the close circle of Omar Farooq, playing active role in his assassination by Feroze, the Parsi. Then, later on, Sabaa bin Shamoun, propagating his theory of Imaamat, and his son Abdallah ibn Sabaa. And then our history is full of crypto Jewish scholars (Ulemas and Imaams) in the later half of the 1st century AH and throughout the 2nd century. There we find Ibn Shahab Zohri (Toosi, according to Allama Tamanna Imaadi), who was the famous courtier, adviser and the teacher of Umayyad princes and a great narrator of libelous Rivayaat, Mohammad bin Ishaq (Maghazi fame), Kalabi (Tafseer-e-Ibn Abbas fame), who was always seen in the company of Jews, collecting ‘gossip’ (rivayaat) from them, and several others…  
And then we find palaces, londi and ghulaams, harams, estates, luxury and wealth, the worst kind of dictatorship and rule of sword during the whole Banu Umayyed period. So, the actual rot started somewhere after 40 AH or may be 60 AH. We cannot be very precise and have to depend upon outer sources which are not available easily and in plenty. They are rather scarce. And you are right in your assessment that Zoroastrians gained full control for a considerable time period starting the 1st Abbaside Caliph Abul Abbas. An excerpt from an answer I offered to one of the readers of my book “Tehqiq-e-Namaaz o Salaat” would also give an over-view of the pre-Abbaside period:-  
 
“More recent and upto-date researches have confirmed the great conspiracy of bringing about a counter-revolution against the new faith of Islam and its phenomenal uprising. An unholy alliance of Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians very successfully carried it out and deprived the coming generations of Muslims of their entire heritage. Seerat, history, tafaseers were fraudulently concocted and fabricated. Because Quran was spread all over the Kingdom in Lakhs (hundred thousands) of numbers by Khulafa-e-Rashideen and could not have been recalled for re-writing and corrupting, a parallel religious doctrine was invented and disseminated in the form of “Ahaadith”, totally based on hearsay (Rivayaat), containing shameful, libelous and degrading material having no authenticity by any standards. People were forced to look for religious guidance into the Books of Ahadith – not in Quran. The old Qureshi (Banu Umayyad ) tyrants who had seized power again around 60 AH (….could be the start of 41 AH), sponsored this conspiracy and used state power to enforce it, because true teachings of Quran could never go along with their autocratic and dictatorial rules. Looking from the outer parameters, we have found out that 600,000 rich and educated Jews alone had to migrate from Iraq and settled in all parts of Arabia, as Hurmuz the Fifth ascended the throne of Sassanide Empire, in 578 AD - just 7 years after the birth of Prophet Mohammad pbuh. The Arabia of the Prophet’s time was infested with influential Jewish tribes (they had 8 fortifications in Khyber alone and two large tribes in Madinah, etc.) as well as Christians. To say the least, all the communities and individuals who were condemned – or earned the wrath of – the two super powers of the time, viz., the Romans and the Sassanides – found refuge in Arabia only. Surrounded from three sides by the two big empires, the Arabia of the time was known as an independent, autonomous region, rich in culture, civilizations and a main trade route for merchants of various nationalities.  
After the capture of Iran, starting the era of Omar Farooq, the defeated Parsis also joined hands with the Jews and Christians in unleashing a counter revolution upon Muslims. They settled in our capitals in the garb of Muslim scholars and worked together in terrorizing activities. They appointed mercenaries and eventually succeeded in killing the Heads of State successively, starting Hazrat Omar and lasting up to the Governor of Kufa, Hussain bin Ali in 61 AH. They had earlier tried to kill Amir Mu’awiyah also. Abdullah ibn Zubair was also on their hit list, but survived the attempt.”  
 
Happy to know that problem with www.aurangzaib.tk is solved. We always need Acrobat Photoshop to open all the links successfully. As for www.aurangzaib.co.cc, the domain is under examination and is supposedly scheduled to re-open in another 24 hours. However, tk should suffice as both are identical.  
I am always open to suggestions and new research. The quest for knowledge must continue unabated. Please feel free to write to aurangzaib.yousufzai@gmail.com. Kindly do convey my compliments to our Zoroastrian brother. I did’nt notice he appeared on the blog indirectly. May He bestow you with health, happiness and more abundant knowledge.  
 
Nice poem you posted by Qasmi Sahib. Have to reciprocate with an astoundingly majestic poem by Faiz, soon.

Dear Brother Auranzaib,  
Thanks for providing us with very valuable information about Jewish and Zoroastrian conspiracies against Islam. I will love to communicate with you via email. Do you ever use Windows Live Messenger, AIM, or Yahoo Messenger? I got all three but mostly use the first two. When I send you email, I will include my identities for all of them. I understand Google too offers a Messenger. But I have not installed it yet.  
Next, I will post a blog titled, “Who can Challenge Mullahs’ Dumb Beliefs?” Originally, I wrote it in Urdu in response to Muhammad Amar Khakwani’s article published in the Daily Express. When Dr. Habib challenged Brother Dr. Qamar Zaman’s views on Salat and Soam, I translated some parts of my article into English for Brother Dr. Shabbir Ahmed’s Forum. I hope Brother Adnan is able to show or send this blog to Muhammad Amar Khakwani.  
Take care,  
Zubair

Who can Challenge Mullahs’ Dumb Beliefs?  
 
Countless scientists, scholars, philosophers, and even other priests, who thought differently, were viciously tortured and, eventually, burned at the stake by Christian Mullahs. Their entire books burned as well. Anyone found in possesses of a banned book faced the same fate. He/she was burned at the stake with the book chained to his/her leg. We are indebted to those courageous individuals who risked their lives to protect a few books. One such book is Christianismi Restitutio. The author of this masterpiece was Michael Servetus, a distinguished physician and scholar of his time. His real name was Michel De Villanovanus. He was forced to change his name to avoid capture and death at the hands of Catholics.  
 
Michael Servetus was born in Spain but moved to France to acquire higher education. He was fluent in several languages including Arabic. After reading original Biblical Scriptures (It was a crime to read the originals at the time, as clergy did not want people to discover the truth) and the Quran, he came to the conclusion that many Christian beliefs, such as Trinity and Virgin Birth, were not part of the Original Scriptures. They were added to the scriptures by the First Council of Nicaea. Any Priest, who opposed this forgery, was silenced. Michael published his findings in his book Christianismi Restitutio along with his discovery of Pulmonary Circulation. The book instantly drew the ire of Catholics as well as Protestants. The book was banned and its author arrested. But the day before he was scheduled to be executed, Michael escaped with the help of a police officer whose daughter he had treated and healed.  
 
After his escape from the prison in France, Michael was heading to Italy, where a sizeable population of Spaniards could have protected him. For some reason he chose a route that went through Geneva in Switzerland, where John Calvin and his followers had moved after escaping from Catholics. They recognized Michael Servetus, arrested him, tried in court for Heresy, and burned him at the stake. The last copy of his book was burned with him as well. They used half fresh twigs, so fire would burn slowly causing maximum pain and slow death. Also, they poured sulfur on his head to increase his suffering. The story could have ended here. However, three copies of the book survived. How? You can read this fascinating story in the book “OUT of the FLAMES” by Lawrence & Nancy Goldstone. You will find the book more interesting than a spy novel. Once I started reading it, I could not stop.  
 
The above are some excerpts taken from my unpublished Urdu article written in response to Muhammad Amar Khakwani’s article published in the Daily Express. In this article the writer advised our Ulma (religious scholars) and reformers to follow the foot steps of the “Great” reformer John Calvin. Of course he did not know the real John Calvin. Voltaire labeled John Calvin a killer and hypocrite while Thomas Jefferson considered him “one of history’s worst offenders and a tyrant who bred other tyrants under his name”. I agree with them. Voltaire (François-Marie Arouet) devoted a whole chapter to Michael Servetus in his book “Essay on the Morals and Spirit of Nations from Charlemagne to our Day”. For your information Voltaire was the first to force the Europeans to admit that Islamic and Oriental Civilizations played a key rule in the development of the Western Civilization. Also, he claimed that the persecution of Christians at the hands of Romans was nothing compared to the persecution by Christians of fellow Christians or anybody who disagreed with them.  
 
Let me mention here that Ibn al-Nafis and Michael Servetus were the first to discover and describe the Pulmonary Circulation, not William Harvey.  
 
Michael Servetus was not alone. Many other Western scientists and scholars opposed Trinity, some openly and others secretly. John Milton, John Locke, Newton, Joseph Priestley, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Ralph Emerson, and John Adams were among them.  
 
Here are two more books that expose Christian Mullahs’ dumb beliefs and their brutal treatment of free thinkers.  
 
“A History of Freethought: Ancient and Modern to the Period of French Revolution” By J M Robertson  
 
“The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark” by Carl Sagan  
 
I hope Brother Habib and other Brothers/Sisters are able to infer from the above story the fate of those brave souls who tried to stop alien beliefs and rituals, such as Namaz, entering Islam. Our Mullahs have been no less brutal than their Christian counterparts in eliminating those who challenged their dumb beliefs.  
 
Please refer to Brother Dr. Habib’s statement aimed at Brother Dr. Qamar Zaman.  
 
“I mean he is NOT THE FIRST INTELLIGENT RESEARCHER in the dumb Muslim Ummah. Surely there are countless others but I don’t see any publications which second his interpretations.”

Dear Brother Zubair,  
 
Thanks for your last post on this blog addressing myself. I shall be waiting for your mail. Yes I have just entered the window live messenger with the identity aurangzaib.yousufzai@live.com.  
Some days ago, relating with problems of opening up links on my web, I misquoted a software. It is Adobe Flashpoint that makes things easy on my web, not the Adobe Photoshop. You see I am no cyber guru, but I can always get help and advice from a wizard who is always around. The post about 'Mullah's Dumb Beliefs' looks interesting. I should come back to it after I have digested it thoroughly. Right now Flue has taken over my physical and spiritual faculties and am trying to recover as fast as possible. Dr. Sahib also directed me to contact you about sharing some of the translation work. It is your jurisdiction, he said. Please be soft on me. Some light work will be OK. as I am not absolved of the duties of university level studies yet, although already in old age. Have just added some material to your elaboration to Brother Rehan in the Chapter Islamic History. Might be of interest to you.  
Best regards. Aurangzaib
