I understand that the question and its answer fall within the prerogative of brother Dr. Qamar Zaman. I too am sorry that it has not been answered yet. I believe it is due to some preoccupation that has left Dr. Sahib with no time to go through the blog. And I hope he would kindly look into it soon.  
God bless you all.

The Truth About Hajj 4 (Final)  
 
SURAH AL-HAJJ  
 
The verse 27 of Surah Al-Hajj is 3rd verse we are going to explore to understand Hajj.  
 
وَأَذِّنْ فِي النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجَالا وَعَلَى كُلِّ ضَامِرٍ يَأْتِينَ مِنْ كُلِّ فَجٍّ عَمِيقٍ  
 
And pronounce Hajj so that people come to you from far and wide on foot and riding skinny camels. (Traditional Translation)  
 
We learn two things from this translation.  
 
• The call for Hajj will be for all people.  
• People will travel on foot and ride camels.  
 
According to the Quran Hajj is for all humanity. People of all races, colors, and religion are welcome to participate in Hajj. It is not limited to Muslims. Participants must either travel on foot or ride on camels. Otherwise, they will violate Quranic decree.  
 
Three words in this verse are worth pondering.  
 
Fee Alnnasi  
Rijalan  
Damirin  
 
Fee Alnnasi: This word means among the people, for the people, or about the people. Hence, it is a gathering of the people for the people. It could also be a proclamation made among the people. Whatever meaning we use, we get the same result that this meeting is for all earthlings regardless of their race, color, creed, or religion. It is not some kind of ritual worship assigned to Muslims only. It is an international conference to discuss global issues or conflicts and take actions to resolve them.  
 
Rijalan: Generally, it is translated to mean walk on foot. This meaning does not make any sense today. How can people from all over the world walk on foot to participate in Hajj? Hence, we chose the correct meaning “worrier” for this Arabic term. Also, verse 108 of Surah At-Taubah defines “Rijal” as follow.  
 
لَا تَقُمْ فِيهِ أَبَدًا ۚ لَّمَسْجِدٌ أُسِّسَ عَلَى التَّقْوَىٰ مِنْ أَوَّلِ يَوْمٍ أَحَقُّ أَن تَقُومَ فِيهِ ۚ فِيهِ رِجَالٌ يُحِبُّونَ أَن يَتَطَهَّرُوا ۚ وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ الْمُطَّهِّرِينَ  
 
You shall never stand in this Masjid. The Masjid that was founded on Taqwa (righteousness) from day one is more appropriate for you to stand in. There you find people who desire to be purified. And Allah likes those who strive for redemption.
 
 
It is obvious from the above verse that Rijal are people who stand in the Masjid founded on Taqwa (righteousness or piety) and they desire redemption. We cannot translate Rijal to mean travel on foot, as not all people walk to Masjid. Also, we cannot translate it to mean men because both men and women go to Masjid. Hence, the Arabic term Rijal includes both men and women. Rajal are courageous, determined, and steadfast individuals who stand firm on their ground in all circumstance. The word Rijala in the verse 22:27 is an object in present form. Hence, it speaks about a situation.  
 
Damirin: The root of this word is “Daad, Meem, and Raa” and it means to be determined, skinny, or hidden. The words Damir (or Zamir, conscience), Mazmarat (consequences), and Zamyr (pronouns) are derived from this root word. Damir (Zamir) or conscience means inner voice or sense of right and wrong. We often hear people say, “This is voice of my Zamir or His Zamir is dead.” Urdu language got the word Zamir from Arabic and it conveys the same meaning. Zamir (plural Zamyr) also means pronoun in both Arabic and Urdu. Hence, the original word Damirin used in the above verse means a person who is determined and steadfast.  
 
The Hajj participants will be Rijal (unwavering persons). Our traditional scholars wanted to turn Hajj into a pilgrimage. Hence, they drew the meaning of skinny or lean she camel from Damir so pilgrims could ride on them for the marathon run. Later, these skinny she camels become Albudna (fat) for the sacrifice. When sacrifice is over, the pilgrims return to their homes on foot. If this understanding of the Quranic term is correct, how come pilgrims do not ride on camels today? Is not this God’s command as well as Sunnah of the Prophet? Why do they travel in airplanes and air conditioned vehicles to perform Hajj? For everything else they never stop mentioning Sunnah of the Rasool or advising us to eat and drink according to the Sunnah and not to wear shirt and pants or listen to music. They sing aloud, “Whoever abandons my Sunnah is not of me.” Why do they forget this hadith during the Hajj? Those who consider the culture of desert Bedouin Sunnah of the Rasool forget this Quranic command.  
 
It is obvious from this discussion that Hajj is not a pilgrimage to some scared place. We can find the sum and substance of Surah Al-Hajj in verses 38-39.  
 
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُدَافِعُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ خَوَّانٍ كَفُورٍ  
أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَاتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُوا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ  
 
Doubtless, Allah aids the believers. Surely, Allah does not like those who are dishonest and reject Divine Writ. Those who face persecution or aggression have the right (to defend themselves). They are victims and, indeed, Allah is able to help them.
 
 
Basically, the purpose of Hajj is to argue for or against an issue that could be a dispute between nations or governments. These verses describe a situation where one nation committed aggression against another. Hence, the victim nation was given permission to fight back and repel the aggressor. This process which allowed the victim nation to act in self defense is called Hajj. This process of Hajj begins with the teachings presented in the verse 22:25.  
 
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَيَصُدُّونَ عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَالْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ الَّذِي جَعَلْنَاهُ لِلنَّاسِ سَوَاءً الْعَاكِفُ فِيهِ وَالْبَادِ وَمَنْ يُرِدْ فِيهِ بِإِلْحَادٍ بِظُلْمٍ نُذِقْهُ مِنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ  
 
Those who reject Allah’s commandments and prevent people from Allah’s Path, i.e. Masjid Haram, which we have set up for all humans regardless of their place of residence, and those who spread evil invite severe retribution.
 
 
Even traditional translation shows that this verse is the foundation of Hajj. It clearly declares that the rejecters, who prevent others from following Allah’s commandments, invite severe retribution. This is declaration of war against those who prevent people from Allah’s Path, i.e. they do not let them follow Allah’s commandments or establish Divine System according to Quranic decrees. The example of Ibrahim (Abraham) given in verse 22:26 and the declaration of Hajj in verses 22:27-29 further clarify what Hajj is.  
 
وَإِذْ بَوَّأْنَا لإبْرَاهِيمَ مَكَانَ الْبَيْتِ أَنْ لا تُشْرِكْ بِي شَيْئًا وَطَهِّرْ بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْقَائِمِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ  
 
Recall the story of Ibrahim. We gave him a home and took the pledge from him not to ascribe any partners to Allah and keep the home purified for repeat visitors who will be steadfast in bowing to (acknowledging and implementing) My commandments.  
 
وَأَذِّنْ فِي النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجَالا وَعَلَى كُلِّ ضَامِرٍ يَأْتِينَ مِنْ كُلِّ فَجٍّ عَمِيقٍ O لِيَشْهَدُوا مَنَافِعَ لَهُمْ وَيَذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ فِي أَيَّامٍ مَعْلُومَاتٍ عَلَى مَا رَزَقَهُمْ مِنْ بَهِيمَةِ الأنْعَامِ فَكُلُوا مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا الْبَائِسَ الْفَقِيرَ O ثُمَّ لْيَقْضُوا تَفَثَهُمْ وَلْيُوفُوا نُذُورَهُمْ وَلْيَطَّوَّفُوا بِالْبَيْتِ الْعَتِيقِ  
 
Pronounce Hajj among the mankind, so that warriors and steadfast persons come to you from far and wide and witness the benefits of Hajj with their own eyes. Keep in mind Allah’s commandments while carrying out the duties of Hajj.
Remember that We brought out benefits for you even from those who were savage beasts. And share the spoils of war with the needy or destitute whether they ask you or not. Mend your ways, fulfill your obligations, and protect this House of Freedom.  
 
This verse mentions some goals of Hajj. They are:  
 
1. The declaration of Hajj will be for all mankind, not just Muslims.  
 
2. When Hajj is declared, people will come from far and wide. Hajj is not limited to certain days of a year. It can be proclaimed whenever necessity arises.  
 
3. Warriors and steadfast persons will participate in Hajj.  
 
4. They will witness for themselves the benefits of participating in Hajj.  
 
5. Allah’s commandments will be reminded and used to accomplish Hajj.  
 
Two terms are worth noting here. They are:  
 
Ayyamin maAAloomatin (أَيَّامٍ مَعْلُومَاتٍ) and Baheemati alanAAami (بھیمۃ الانعام)  
 
Ayyamin maAAloomatin are the same days called Allah’s days in Surah Ibrahim verse 5.  
 
’’وذکرھم بایام اللہ ‘‘  
 
And remind them Allah’s days.
 
 
Hence, the term Ayyamin maAAloomatin here means to keep Allah’s commandments in mind during Known Days. Quran uses Allah’s Days or Known Days for the periods when Mominin (believers) receive God’s bounties in abundance. Also, during the same period rejecters of the Divine Writ receive retribution. These periods in history are well known. If a Momin witnesses aggression, oppression, and any violation of human rights, he proclaims Hajj for mankind to deal with the situation and remind them about the periods (Ayyam maAAloomat or Ayyam Allah) when there is no aggression and people enjoy peace and prosperity.  
 
The second term Baheemati alanAAami means the Baheemat (brutality) of alanAAam (beasts). Whenever traditional scholars see this compound word, they get confused. Some translate it to mean animals that chew the cud and, hence, justify the ritual of sacrifice. Others translated Baheemat to mean cattle. However, nobody took alanAAam to be a term. We learn about the meaning of “alanAAam” in this verse.  
 
أُولَئِكَ كَالأنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ أُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ  
 
These are the folks who behave like animals. In fact, they are worse than animals. They are heedless.
 
 
“AlanAAam” are those people who already possess Divine Writ but they pay no heed to its teachings or commandments. Also, they do not use their intellect or common sense. These brutal blockheads are being compared to beasts of the jungle.  
 
6. Whatever spoils you get despite facing brutality of blockheads (indicates a conflict), benefit from them as well as share them with the needy.
 
 
Hajj is a gathering during which participants will reach important decisions about world affairs. In Thumma lyaqdoo tafathahum (ثُمَّ لْيَقْضُوا تَفَثَهُمْ) the word “qdoo” means to reach a decision. The root of tafathahum (تفثھم) is Taa, Faa, and Thaa, which means to be covered in filth or blood. Obviously, it is not physical filth. What kind of worship allows a person to stay dirty for days? Instead of taking into account the social and economic aspects of Hajj, our traditional scholars deliberately translate “tafath” to mean physical filth and thus prevent participants from taking shower and keeping themselves clean for days. Actually, tafath means society’s wrong attitudes or manners, which allow some humans to exploit or oppress others. That is why the verse stresses that important decisions will be made about these attitudes.  
 
وَلْيُوفُوا نُذُورَهُمْ  
 
And fulfill your obligations.
 
 
Nuthoorahum means to be knowledgeable or well-informed. Prophets are knowledgeable and they dispense knowledge to the society. That is why they are often called Manuthoor . An import goal of Hajj is to take care of any prior unfinished tasks.  
 
 
وَلْيَطَّوَّفُوا بِالْبَيْتِ الْعَتِيقِ  
 
And protect the house of freedom.
 
 
Tawwafoo means to come again and again. If someone visits a place over and over again, we often say that he is circling the place. It does not mean he actually circles the place. Rather it means he visits the place too often. For same reason a watchman is called Taif in Arabic. This is because he comes to the street too often. For the same reason the city of Taif got its name. It stood in the way to Mecca and, hence, protected it from invaders like a watchman.  
 
The word AAateeq in “bialbayti alAAateeqi” is derived from the root Ayn, Taa, and Qaaf. It means old as well as freedom. To convert Hajj into a pilgrimage, Mufsarin Quran chose the meaning old. If we keep the purpose of Hajj in mind, the correct meaning would be freedom. People come to Hajj to protest and devise plans how to stand up to the aggressor and help the oppressed get their freedom.  
 
 
ذَلِكَ وَمَنْ يُعَظِّمْ حُرُمَاتِ اللَّهِ فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَهُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ وَأُحِلَّتْ لَكُمُ الأنْعَامُ إِلا مَا يُتْلَى عَلَيْكُمْ فَاجْتَنِبُوا الرِّجْسَ مِنَ الأوْثَانِ وَاجْتَنِبُوا قَوْلَ الزُّورِ  
 
This is the aim of Hajj. And whoever upholds Allah’s Commandments and guards against crossing the limitations set herein does so for his own good. Society had let loose the beasts that brutalized others. Hence, avoid becoming stagnant or forcing your way through bullying or intimidation.
 
 
Please take a moment to ponder over the Arabic terms mina alawthani and qawla alzzoori. Awthan is derived from the root “Wau, Thaa, and Noon”. It means stand still or resist change. Because a statue does not change, it too is called Awthan. In fact everything that does not change is called Awthan. It is human nature to change and move forward. New inventions take over the old stuff. Water that keeps flowing stays clean. Those who are alive move but dead do not. Those who accept change keep marching forward while others who refuse to give up their old ways become stagnant. Hence, we are commanded to avoid the filth of old contaminated beliefs (alrrijsa mina alawthani). This command does not address worshiping of the statues.  
 
The next part of the verse beautifully demonstrates the purpose of Hajj. We are commanded to refrain from bullying and intimidation (waijtaniboo qawla alzzoori) to persuade others. The main purpose of Hajj is to abandon the brutal and stagnant old ways and move on to the highway of peace, progress, and prosperity. And persuade others with wisdom, not bullying, to do the same. This change must be based on Allah’s commandments. Verse 31 further clarifies this point.  
 
 
حُنَفَاءَ لِلَّهِ غَيْرَ مُشْرِكِينَ بِهِ وَمَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَكَأَنَّمَا خَرَّ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ فَتَخْطَفُهُ الطَّيْرُ أَوْ تَهْوِي بِهِ الرِّيحُ فِي مَكَانٍ سَحِيقٍ  
 
Do not ascribe any partners to Allah. Those who ascribe partners to Allah their example is like the one who falls from the sky and birds snatch him or high winds carry him to a place of unspeakable horrors.
 
During the hajj one should not be carried away by his/her own views or ideas, which might be prejudiced. In other words, no contamination of Allah’s commandments is allowed. They must be kept pure and followed in letter and spirit.  
 
This is not a pilgrimage of a holy place. The next verse further illustrates that the gathering of Hajj has a purpose and it requires obeying the rules and regulations.  
 
 
ذَلِكَ وَمَنْ يُعَظِّمْ شَعَائِرَ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّهَا مِنْ تَقْوَى الْقُلُوبِ  
 
This is the Hajj. And whoever upholds Allah’s Standards of Right and Wrong affirms his devotion.
 
 
Acknowledging and upholding Allah’s Standards of Right and Wrong (شَعَائِرَ اللَّهِ) is Hajj. These standards give us sense of right and wrong and, hence, enable us to gain consciousness of Allah. Those who uphold Allah’s standards of right and wrong demonstrate sincerity of their hearts.  
 
 
لَكُمْ فِيهَا مَنَافِعُ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ثُمَّ مَحِلُّهَا إِلَى الْبَيْتِ الْعَتِيقِ  
 
Eventually, there is benefit in this for you. Further, the House of Freedom is your end objective anyway.  
 
وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ جَعَلْنَا مَنْسَكًا لِيَذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَى مَا رَزَقَهُمْ مِنْ بَهِيمَةِ الأنْعَامِ فَإِلَهُكُمْ إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ فَلَهُ أَسْلِمُوا وَبَشِّرِ الْمُخْبِتِينَ  
 
We have set up standards for every nation so that it keeps in mind Allah’s commandments. Despite the savagery of human beasts, We made them a source of your livelihood. Your Allah is One. Make peace in His name and give the good news to those who are humble.
 
 
Allah is beyond the perception of any human being. Our eyes and our intellect cannot encompass or comprehend Him (لا تدرکہ الابصار). We can recognize our Creator only through His attributes, which are His laws, commandments, signs, and standards.  
 
When Quran says, your Allah is One (Alhakam Allah Wahid (الھکم الہ واحد), it actually points to Allah’s commandments and standards. In fact, there is nothing like the natural laws. They are unique, excellent, and free of any human adulteration. Those who are humble understand, admire, and obey Allah’s laws.  
 
 
الَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ اللَّهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَالصَّابِرِينَ عَلَى مَا أَصَابَهُمْ وَالْمُقِيمِي الصَّلاةِ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنْفِقُونَ  
 
These are the folks when reminded of Allah’s commandments their hearts are filled with awe. They are steadfast in all circumstances. They strive to establish a governing system according to Allah’s decrees. And they keep their wealth or resources, which We bestowed on them, open for the benefit of others.
 
 
Next verse again mentions Sign of Allah (shaAAairi Allahi). If we think carefully, we can easily figure out that the Signs of Allah are those things that help us become conscious of Allah. Sure we cannot see our Creator. But we can still verify His presence or existence by studying His creation and pondering over His Laws. When we study our universe, we learn that its creation involved precise measurements and accurate mathematical calculations. If there were even a tiny error in calculations, there would be no universe and no life. Further, all things in the universe show a flawless design and perfect balance. Even in the creation of humanity, both physical and spiritual, we see natural laws played a great role. Hence, a simple and short definition of the Signs of Allah would be something like this.  
 
Allah’s laws and forces that maintain the entire universe and keep a balance among all the creations are Allah’s Signs.  
 
No matter from what side we look at these laws the result is always the same. They enable us to become conscious of Allah. Quran offers us a standard for human rights. Hence, its teachings, decrees, or commandments, which are also called Signs of Allah, deal only with human rights.  
 
 
َالْبُدْنَ جَعَلْنَاهَا لَكُمْ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ اللَّهِ لَكُمْ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ فَاذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهَا صَوَافَّ فَإِذَا وَجَبَتْ جُنُوبُهَا فَكُلُوا مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا الْقَانِعَ وَالْمُعْتَرَّ كَذَلِكَ سَخَّرْنَاهَا لَكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ  
 
And Albudna (warriors or gladiators) are Signs of Allah. They are a blessing for you. Hence, remind them Allah’s commandment when they are in Sawaffa (battlefield). Take the war spoils when enemy’s combatants surrender and share them with the needy whether they ask you or not. We enabled you to subdue them (your enemy). Hence, be grateful.
 
 
As we mentioned earlier Allah’s Signs are His laws and forces that maintain the universe and keep everything in it in a balance. Once we understand and acknowledge these laws, we attain consciousness of Allah. Some Arabic words or terms in this verse need further explanation. They are Albudna, Sawaffa, and junoobuha.  
 
Albudna:  
Traditionalists translate it to mean a fat camel intended for sacrifice. However, the word is a proper noun, not common noun. Moreover, Quran declares it to be a Sign of Allah. If Albudna are fat camels, how can we consider them Signs of Allah? How can we violate them? If camel is the chosen animal for sacrifice, why do Muslims sacrifice goats, sheep, and cows? And millions of animals are slaughtered and buried in the ground. Only a few thousand are donated to some poor countries to fulfill the command of feeding the needy. Does feeding a few thousand poor folks fulfill the obligation of taking care of the needy?  
 
The violations of Allah Signs are obvious at the Hajj. This ritual Hajj is not the Quranic Hajj at all. Fat camels are not Signs of Allah and feeding their meat to hungry does not fulfill the command of taking care of the needy. Quran not only calls “Albudna” Signs of Allah but also points out that there are benefits in them.  
 
 
وَالْبُدْنَ جَعَلْنَاهَا لَكُمْ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ اللَّهِ لَكُمْ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ  
 
And We have appointed Albudna as Sign of Allah for you. There is blessing in them for you.
 
 
Traditionalists translate “Albudna” to mean fat camel. Also, (faitha wajabat junoobuha) is translated to mean when camel falls down on its side. One reputed modern day scholar translated this verse as follow.  
 
 
“Sacrificial camels are Allah’s signs. In them there are benefits for you. Recite Allah’s name when they are standing. When they fall down, eat and feed the needy. We have made these animals subservient for you. Hence, be grateful.”
 
 
If we follow the translation of traditionalists, only camels can be sacrificed because “Albudna” is translated to mean camel. Similarly, Damir (Zamir) is translated to mean a lean or skinny she camel. Moreover, the method of slaughter mentioned in the verse applies to camels only. Hence, the whole objective of this ritual or exercise is to slaughter the camels and distribute their meat and body parts to the needy folks (even if they do not seek help) for consumption.  
 
The root of Albudna is Baa, Daal, and Noon. It means fat, powerful, brave, and wealthy. The word Budna is plural of Badn, which is subjective noun. It applies to a person who demonstrates courage or power. The characteristic of being fat does not apply to a human or animal. If we do so, it would mean the person or animal who follows the attribute of being fat. This statement does not make any sense. Hence, we can confidently translate Albudna to mean those individuals whose attribute is courage or bravery. They could be Muslim fighters or enemy worriers. In the later case they become beneficial to Islamic State when they surrender. That is why even at the battlefield Allah’s commandments are reminded to all fighters or worriers. And their bravery is beneficial to the nation as well as oppressed individuals who called AlqaniAAa (the needy but content) and AlmuAAtarra (the destitute seeking help) in the Quran.  
 
Sawaffa:  
The root of this word is Saad, Faa, and Faa. It means stand in a line. The word Sif is derived from it. Sawaffa is plural of Safta, which like Badn is a subjective noun and it means those who stand in line. Animals are not capable of forming lines or forcing others to stand in a line. (But ducks and some other birds do form lines while walking on the land or flying in the air. Dr. Qamar needs to revise this statement.) Sawaffa also means military camp or battlefield. Anyway the correct translation would be to remind Allah’s commandments to those worriers who are in a military camp or battlefield. This awareness of Allah’s commandments will prevent fighters from violating any command even in the battlefield.  
 
Junoobuha:  
The root of this word is Jeem, Noon, and Baa. Many words such as Junoob, Janab, and Janb are derived from it. Junoob is plural of Janb. Quran uses many words derived from this root word. Verse 56 of Surah Az-Zumar uses term “Janb Allah” that means Allah’s commandments.  
 
 
فَإِذَا وَجَبَتْ جُنُوبُهَا فَكُلُوا مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا الْقَانِعَ وَالْمُعْتَرَّ كَذَلِكَ سَخَّرْنَاهَا لَكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ  
 
When they surrender, you can benefit from them and let the oppressed individuals or nation receive reparations from them as well. We helped you subdue them. Hence, be grateful.
 
 
Doubtless, this verse is not talking about any sacrificial animal. Rather it discusses physical steps Islamic army takes after it defeats and subdues its enemy. Those individuals, regardless of whether they were silent or protesting while suffering under oppression, are entitled to receiving reparations for their sufferings. That is why Allah brought the oppressor under their control. Hence, they should be grateful.  
Next verse says,  
 
 
لَنْ يَنَالَ اللَّهَ لُحُومُهَا وَلا دِمَاؤُهَا وَلَكِنْ يَنَالُهُ التَّقْوَى مِنْكُمْ كَذَلِكَ سَخَّرَهَا لَكُمْ لِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُحْسِنِينَ  
 
Neither their meat nor their blood reaches Allah. What reaches Allah is your Taqwa (devotion). For the reasons mentioned above, we helped you subdue them so that you could establish Allah’s Supremacy, i.e. Divine State, according to Our decrees. And convey the good news to Almuhsineena (those who do the right).
 
If we take “luhoomuha” and “dimaoha” to mean meat and blood, we get a contradictory understanding of the verse. This is because Allah clearly says that he neither receives meat nor blood. Why sacrifice animals? What reaches Allah is Taqwa, i.e. your devotion to acknowledging and implementing of Allah’s commandments.  
There must be a purpose of implementing Allah’s commandments. How can there be an action without any purpose or result?  
 
What is the purpose or result of sacrificing animals at Hajj? Is its purpose to feed the world’s hungry? But less than 1% meat reaches the hungry. Rest is wasted. Pilgrims spend lots of money but without any purpose or result. Nothing in the universe benefits from this Hajj. Even Allah Almighty does not receive any meat or blood from the sacrificed animals. Only non-Muslim nations, which build ships and airplanes for travel, supply farm animals for sacrifice, and manufacture and ship tents, rosaries, and vehicles to Mecca, benefit from this ritual. Look how easily these non-Muslim nations pocket the money that Muslims earn with their sweat and blood over a lifetime. What Muslims spend on Hajj in just a few days surpasses the total debt of many “Islamic” countries. In brief, animal sacrifice has no beneficial effect on the world. It does not result in implementing Allah’s commandments.  
 
Now let us study two Arabic terms “Luhoomuha” and “Dimaoha”. The root of Luhoomuha is Laam, Haa, and Meem. It has multiple meanings. They are:  
 
Luhoomun: Meat  
Luhoomatun: to weave cloth  
Luhoomun Shir: Fat man or a house where people backbite  
Luhamun: Something used to join parts of silver and gold  
Malhamatun: uprising, war  
Nabi Almalhamta: The prophet who is commanded to wage jihad (also, a prophet who removes differences and creates mutual understanding and love among his followers)  
Luhoom Alamar: To correct a job  
Alham: To complete a task  
Alham Ma Asdiat: Complete the job you started  
In other words Luhoomun basically means to bring together. When applied to people it means to remove differences and create cordial relations or mutual respect. If applied to things it means to join together, such as repair the broken jewelry.  
 
The verse 12 of Surah Al-Hajarat says,  
 
 
أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَنْ يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا  
 
Would you like to eat your dead brother's flesh? (Traditional translation)
 
 
Actually, Quran means if you would like to backbite your brother who is not there to defend himself. No human eats the flesh of his brother. He may backbite his brother for sure. Quran compares backbiting to eating the flesh of one’s brother. Likewise “Luhoomuha” in Surah Hajj does not mean meat. Rather it means to repair relationships or develop friendships. Similarly, “Dimaoha” means blood. But blood can get dirty or spoil. Humans can suck blood or they can rob what others earn with their sweat and blood. If Quran gives us standards for human rights, then “Dimaoha” can only be translated to mean bloodshed, not blood.  
 
Keeping in mind the context of these verses, we can figure out it is a state of emergency. It demands careful discussions, dialogues, and engagements to find solutions and bring the nation (or nations) out of present crisis. If the situation involves a strong nation exploiting or oppressing a week nation, our duty is to stop the exploitation or oppression. We may confront people with beast like mentality and they may prevent resources or basic necessities reaching the needy. Hence, our first task is to ensure the flow of basic necessities to all who need them. If the solution demands war, we still need to remind the enemy forces about Allah’s commandments, which clearly prohibit exploitation, oppression, mischief, and bloodshed. These verses also warn us that the mischief and bloodshed caused by these beasts does not benefit anybody. Only Taqwa (acknowledgement and implementation of Allah’s commandments) benefits humanity. Persons endowed with this attribute strive to set up the Divine System that stops all forms of exploitation or oppression and ensures equitable distribution of state resources.  
 
Please read last part of the verse again. It says,  
 
 
كَذَلِكَ سَخَّرَهَا لَكُمْ لِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُحْسِنِينَ  
 
For all the reasons mentioned above, we helped you subdue them (exploiters and oppressors) so that you establish Allah’s Supremacy, i.e. Divine State, according to Our decrees. And convey the good news to Almuhsineena (the doers of good).
 
 
The above message leaves no doubt in our minds that Hajj is a plan of action to facilitate the establishment of a Divine State based on Allah’s commandments. Whenever Quran talks about establishing Allah’s Supremacy, it actually means setting up a State that implements Allah’s commandments. Hence, Hajj is not a pilgrimage to a sacred place. Next verse explains the meaning of Hajj further.  
 
 
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُدَافِعُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ خَوَّانٍ كَفُورٍ  
 
Doubtless, Allah intervenes on behalf of the faithful and, surely, Allah does not like dishonest rejecters (of Divine writ).
 
 
Allah does not like dishonest rejecters, those who exploit or oppress others in violation of Allah’s commandments. Whenever the faithful witness a nation exploiting or oppressing another nation, they must be able to intervene on behalf of the oppressed by using the power and might of their State, which they established according to Allah’s commandments.  
 
Verse 39 illustrates why the process of Hajj is necessary.  
 
 
أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَاتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُوا  
 
Those facing exploitation and oppression have the permission.
 
 
What permission? Of course, the permission to fight back and that is Hajj. The reason for this permission is explained as well. Those folks were being exploited or oppressed. Hence, Hajj has only one purpose, i.e. to aid the oppressed and punish the oppressor. Next, Quran says,  
 
 
وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ  
 
Surely, Allah is able to make laws to help the oppressed.
 
 
This implies that after Hajj is accomplished, the Divine State must develop a plan of action to demonstrate its ability to help and compensate the oppressed.  
 
Verse 40 explains the reason and mission of Hajj precisely.  
 
 
الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِنْ دِيَارِهِمْ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ إِلا أَنْ يَقُولُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ وَلَوْلا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيرًا وَلَيَنْصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ  
 
These oppressed folks have been driven away from their homes because they proclaim Allah is their Rab. If Allah does not help one folk against another, then SawamiAAu, BiyaAAun, Salawatun, and Masajidu would have been destroyed. And Allah helps those who help Him. Allah is Mighty, Powerful.
 
 
If there were no Hajj, the oppressors would have a free hand to do whatever they want. They oppress those who accept the Divine State to be their Rab (provider of nourishments or necessities), that is they believe only a State based on Allah’s commandments can establish Nizam-e-Rabubiat or Divine System (the system that takes care of all the basic needs of every individual in the society). If Divine State does not defend the faithful, the oppressors may destroy them and their system. In other words SawamiAAu, BiyaAAun, Salawatun, and Masajidu are the pillars of the Divine State and the State uses them to aid and comfort the oppressed. Our Persian Imams wanted to turn Islam into a religion of rituals and worship. To achieve their objective, they changed the meaning of Arabic terms to fit into the mold of a religion of worship. Hence, Salawatun (Divine System) became a method of worship, Soam (avoiding evil and promoting virtue) became a ritual of hunger and thirst, Zakat (economic system to bring prosperity to whole society) became a way to cleanse ill-gotten wealth, Hajj (the just war to aid oppressed and eliminate all forms of oppression and exploitation) became a pilgrimage to holy places.  
 
Now let us study these Arabic terms SawamiAAu, BiyaAAun, Salawatun, and Masajidu.  
 
SawamiAAu:  
Its root is Saad, Meem, and Ayn and it means to rise up to the higher station of honor.  
 
BiyaAAun:  
Its root is Baa, Yaa, and Ayn, which means agreement or contract. Hence, BiyaAA are the centers where agreements or contracts are signed. Trade agreements and arms control agreements between countries fall under this category as well.  
 
Salawatun:  
Its root is Saad, Laam, and Wau and it means system. We have discussed this term in detail in the book “Haqiqat-e-Salaat”.  
 
Masajidu:  
It refers to commandments that all Muslims must acknowledge, obey and implement. Every oppressor aims to destroy the Masajidu (Allah’s commandments) that are necessary to establish a model welfare state (Salawatun). In other words the oppressor destroys Salawatun and tears up agreements that guarantee prosperity to all inhabitants of the state. He arrests, tortures, and even executes those who devote their lives for protecting and maintaining the benevolent system.  
 
These four pillars guarantee peace and prosperity to any society. Whenever they see an opportunity, the oppressors begin their oppression by striking at these pillars to bring the whole benevolent system down.  
 
Note: I suggest Brother Dr. Qamar revise the statement given below. The attribute “Rab” should be used only for The Creator. The system that nourishes everything in the universe is under His control. When get a chance, I will explain it in more detail.  
دیکھئے اگر حج نہ ہو تو ظالم لوگ کیا کچھ کر تے ہیں یہ ظالم لوگ مظلوموں کو صرف اس وجہ سے تنگ کرتے ہیں کہ انہوں نے حکومت الہیہ کو ہی اپنا رب مانا  

Comments by: Nargis-Badshah-Salamat On 24 June 2011Report Abuse
 
Sawaffa:  
The root of this word is Saad, Faa, and Faa. It means stand in a line. The word Sif is derived from it. Sawaffa is plural of Safta, which like Badn is a subjective noun and it means those who stand in line. Animals are not capable of forming lines or forcing others to stand in a line. (But ducks and some other birds do form lines while walking on the land or flying in the air. Dr. Qamar needs to revise this statement.)Zubair  
 
Does Saa Faa and Faa mean flying in line or walking in line ? Are animals STANDING in line? Is flying and walking in line same as standing in line?

Dear Zubair! Accept my appreciations and congratulations for the noble cause of translating the Aastana,s prominent book/ Written by Dr.Qamarzaman, in fact you are participating in jihad alwaqt.  
As for as Dr Qamar's statement that, "Animals are not capable of forming lines or forcing others to stand in a line"  
Its sense should be seen with respect to the context of the subject.  
Remember it doesn't mean the physical standing/flying/walking, rather the capability to bring them at same aim/mission by convincing and arguing each other. I find that ,it is correctly stated by Dr, Qamar.  
Any how,such a suggestion most suited at personal address of dr Qamar.If you don't mind.

Thanks for the appreciation, Brother Moazzam. Here is the excerpt from the book.  
 
اس کا مادہ ’’ص ف ف‘‘ ہے جس کے معنی ہیں قطار جس سے لفظ صف بھی مستعمل ہے۔ صواف بھی صافۃ کی جمع ہے اور صافۃ بھی بدن کی طرح اسم الفاعل ہے یعنی صافۃ کے معنی ہوئے قطار بنانے والیاں جب کہ کسی بھی جانور میں خود صف بنانے یا کسی اور کو صف میں کھڑا کرنے کی صلاحیت نہیں ہوتی۔ صواف کے دوسرے معنی ہیں فوجی پڑاؤ، میدان جنگ۔ ان بہادراور طاقتور لوگوں کو میدان جنگ اور پڑاؤمیں احکامات الہی کی یاددہانی کراتے رہناہے تاکہ جنگ کی حالت میں بھی کسی غلطی کا ارتکاب نہ ہو۔  
 
It says, “There is no Animal capable of forming a row or line and forcing others to stand in the line.”

Brother Zubair! Salam  
The sense of “SAWAF” would be taken in accordance with the context of the verse under question. See the verese20/64, here the “SAFFA” means the implementation of their planning with co-ordination .  
فَأَجْمِعُوا كَيْدَكُمْ ثُمَّ ائْتُوا صَفًّا وَقَدْ أَفْلَحَ الْيَوْمَ مَنِ اسْتَعْلَ 20/64  
Now come to the verse 61/4, this also mean the fighting against enemies with co-operation and co-ordination with each other.  
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِهِ صَفًّا كَأَنَّهُم بُنيَانٌ مَّرْصُوصٌ 61/4.  
Remember the sense of “SAFFAT” would be taken as flying/walking/swimming in line as per context of the verses as given in verse 24/41  
أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالطَّيْرُ صَافَّاتٍ كُلٌّ قَدْ عَلِمَ صَلَاتَهُ وَتَسْبِيحَهُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ 24/41 and 67/19  
أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الطَّيْرِ فَوْقَهُمْ صَافَّاتٍ وَيَقْبِضْنَ مَا يُمْسِكُهُنَّ إِلَّا الرَّحْمَنُ إِنَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ بَصِيرٌ 67/19  
CONCLUSION! Dr. Qamar’s atatement should be taken according to the context of the subject, I my self 100% agree with his statement “  
اس کا مادہ ’’ص ف ف‘‘ ہے جس کے معنی ہیں قطار جس سے لفظ صف بھی مستعمل ہے۔ صواف بھی صافۃ کی جمع ہے اور صافۃ بھی بدن کی طرح اسم الفاعل ہے یعنی صافۃ کے معنی ہوئے قطار بنانے والیاں جب کہ کسی بھی جانور میں خود صف بنانے یا کسی اور کو صف میں کھڑا کرنے کی صلاحیت نہیں ہوتی۔ صواف کے دوسرے معنی ہیں فوجی پڑاؤ، میدان جنگ۔ ان بہادراور طاقتور لوگوں کو میدان جنگ اور پڑاؤمیں احکامات الہی کی یاددہانی کراتے رہناہے تاکہ جنگ کی حالت میں بھی کسی غلطی کا ارتکاب نہ ہو۔

Salam brother Moazzam,  
You dont seem to get the point here. Its very simple.  
Dr Qamar's understanding of verse is correct and what you explained is correct only that your explaination should have been the explaination of the verse not how Dr Qamar wrote other wise whats the point of putting an explaination.  
It is as simple as that and I dont know why a big deal is being made out of it!  
I think bro Zubair is right because this is how it sounds and please please brother positive critisism should be encouraged, as it will only help the real cause of " giving true message of Quran to the people(the awam at large)"  
And please let Dr. Qamar stay human as he never claimed otherwise.  
Sorry I keep bugging you since you are the only one who's always available and with lots of patients to tolerate everyone...:) may Allah reward you for that.

Brother Moazzam, thank you for your explanation once again, because Dr Uncles explanation was crystal clear, and you explained his explanation beautifully because you got the essence of the clarification. And I'm glad you shared your understanding of Dr Uncle’s explanation which is given to point out the core of Sawaf in relation to the circumstance under discussion.  
 
""Remember it doesn't mean the physical standing/flying/walking, rather the capability to bring them at same aim/mission by convincing and arguing each other. ""brother Moazzam  
 
Because Dr Uncles explanation is in relation to the context of the Quran and the reader would know Hajj is the subject discussed, it would be obvious that any explanation is in relation to the *use of the word in the context and in relation to the topic that defines it.  
 
If the explanation was given for Discovery channel, National geographic or animal planet, and the physical capability of animals were under discussion, then the explanation would be different.

Main pehle hi keh chuka hoon ke yeh forum public forum he aur is pe aap ki koi post personal nahi ke koi aur reply na kare. Aap ko agar kisi se personal sawaal karna he to barae meherbaani email ke through karein, warna agar koi aur comment kar raha ho to jazbaati na hon aap.

William: Your presumptions are very offensive. Firstly, I do not consider any member of the “online community” an “enemy” in any regard. Secondly, I do not accept any information without first attempting to confirm it for myself. Having said that, if there are explanations that are clear and make sense, and such comments are substantiated, how can any individual disregard them without any actual reasoning? Such contentions require supporting evidence i.e. providing analysis of the grammar within a given aya!  
 
UmeAimon: ONLY because some don't accept a concepts without thorough cross questioning or disection means he/she is il hearted? why is that so tell me??  
NOT every critical voice is disloyal and NOT every yes-man is a well wisher!!!  
 
William: I agree that concepts should be cross-examined. Theories should be critically analysed and constructively scrutinised, thus filtering spurious assertions. However, not many members are providing structured and corroborated responses. So I would advise those who oppose any of the given theories, to provide proper responses, which include referencing of root meanings, examination of morphology, syntax, a grammatical analysis, and any other supporting details. I agree, that “NOT every critical voice is disloyal and NOT every yes-man is a well wisher!!!” - actions speak louder than words!  
 
UmeAimon: I for one have not started coming on this forum to blindly follow for the sake of it, creating yet another personality sect, but keeping the bigger picture in sight.  
After all what is the purpose of this retranslation?  
 
William: Very valid point, you should not blindly follow. However, I would advise you to try and be clearer in your questions / comments so that we do not misunderstand. If you do disagree with anything, please provide reasoning for doing so! Your concern regarding this forum becoming a "personality sect", I can assure you that this is not going to happen! On another note, participants / members who work hard should be recognised; praise for their efforts will help motivate them further.  
 
UmeAimon: I think people who are not letting any kind of critisism come forward, are doing this cause more harm than good, intentionally or unintentionally, God knows better.  
 
William: Criticism is necessary! However it must be done in a structured format, without a harsh tone, evading personal confrontation. It should be clear and concise so that the problem is resolved as soon as possible.  
 
Thank you  
 
Regards  
 
William

Thanks brother Moazzam from core of my heart... and you too bro William really :) but I am hoping your last sentence is addressed to many many OTHER Aastana members not just me because actually I have tried my level best not to cross the line in critisising ANYONE even though people have been quite, may I say rude with me and each other too and my critisism is for the work strictly that is going to effect this cause NEVER personal!! the only direct responses are for reminder of limits...  
One more thing, there is a reason I told you when presuming, and I am sorry you found it offensive, and that is I never found you saying this last sentence to any one who is agreeing with whatever is being said. You never said anything to bro Maulan when he said to me, " Shayad app ki problem sirf itni he ke app NARCISSISM aur COGNITIVE DISSONANCE ka shikaar hain". Are you saying for you it is alright for someone to say that because he/she cannot understand what I said?? ... Please it does not mean I want or expect anyone to jump in to defend me as I myself don't when the personal egos are at war and try to avoid such confrontations ... and you know there had been many here.... but you know when someone does on the basis of some value, shouldn't he/she do for everyone regardless of what there stand is!!?  
Ok never mind, my ego was and I never that big if you meant well I should take it as it is without questioning but I had to clear why I felt the way I did and anyways that will not stop me from loving you all because you know what I can't hate people who are already fighting at so many fronts !! just dont feel good to see people loose the sight of the real thing!!  
Common I am also one of those who is still dealing with people who think a Munkar e Hadith is Waajib ul Qatal! and people who are not directly living in such societies may not realise how difficult of a task is even that!  
And I'll still keep being skeptical of evey word for my own sake for now ..I'm being very honest as I told before I am not in position to teach anyone yet!  
 
I must stop as my quota for the whole week is over and I dont want someone to diagnose me of ADD now :D!

Well done, So proud of you :):) . Many people would love to "shut up" women just because they want them to be shy and not combative if its a fight against a man- These kind of people dont understand, where it is needed, one have to stand up, no matter if your a male or female.

Mohtarma UmeAimon sahiba, aap ki baat meri samajh mein nahi aa rahi bilkul. Kabhi aap kuch kehti hain aur kabhi kuch. Aakhir aap ki problem kya he?  
 
Aap ne farmaya;  
 
brother Moazzam ... And please let Dr. Qamar stay human as he never claimed otherwise.  
 
Kya yeh ghalat nahi kaha aap ne? Is baat ka kya matlab he aakhir?  
 
Aur sawaal karne pe aap ka jawwab aata he;  
Brother William, ... I am really trying to avoid getting myself engaged with everyone here and try to remain to the point.  
 
AAp khud bataiye ke yeh public forum he aur aap apne aggressive remarks ki koi explaination dene ko tayyar nahi hain aur jo sawaal kar raha he us ko aap keh rahi hain ke aap kisi se baat nahi karna chahti hain.  
Kya yeh sahi he?  
Phir ab kyun aap mazloom ban rahi hain ? Aisa lag raha he ke aap ne kuch kiya hi nahi bilkul.  
 
Brother William,  
I dont know why some people including you I must say truthfully, have decided that only certain people who billa choo charaan accept whatever is presented on this forum are the only well wishers and the rest are just the enemies in disguise!.
 
 
Aik aur fazool sa ilzaam laga rahi hain aap doosron pe aur is baat ki koi explanation bhi nahi de rahi hain aap.  
Please Khul ke baat kijiye ke kaun well wishers sur kaun enemies?  
Aakhir ite aggressive criticism ka kya maqsad he?  
Kyun aap discussion ko ilzaamat ki taraf le jaa rahi hain aur kyun aap ko apne agressive remarks nazar nahi aa rahe?  
 
I am also one of those who is still dealing with people who think a Munkar e Hadith is Waajib ul Qatal! and people who are not directly living in such societies may not realise how difficult of a task is even that!  
 
Bibi kisi ko kya kena dena is cheez se ke aap ki life main aap kya face kar rahi hain aur kya nahi. Aap kin logon ko face kar rahi hain aur kin ko nahi, is se hamain kya lena dena? Aap ko kis ne kaha he ke aap munkar e hadees ban ke logon ko face karein? Aur agar kar rahi hain to hum pe koi ehsaan to nahi kar rahi hain aap. Yeh to aap ka zaati masla he.  
 
And please let Dr. Qamar stay human as he never claimed otherwise.  
 
Aap sirf yeh bataiye ke is ilzaam ka kya matlab he?  
NAUZOBILLAH kis ne kya bana diya he mohtaram Dr. Qamr ko?

I think its about time this affront on Sis UmeAimon be set aside and we continue this very knowledgeable and enlightning topic. I can see that you have much to contribute but is it possible for you to write in english so that Aastana members and readers from rest of the world can follow the debate ( mind not between yourself and Umeaimon)

Salamun Alaikum Mohtarma Maniza saahiba,  
English shayad sirf America, England ya phir dunya ke chand mumaalik mein boli jaane wali zubaan he. Zaroori to nahi ke English mein likhne se sab log meri baat samajh jaayen. Kya Germany, Turkey, Holland, Japan, China, Russia, France, Italy waghaira mein english boli aur samjhi jaati hai?  
Ya phir yeh sirf kuch Muslim Mumalik ki awwam aur khaas kar un mumaalik ki awaam jo Britain ki Ghulaami karte rahe hain, ki kamzori ban chuki he. Aakhir English hi kyun?  
 
Aur phir aap ke hi forum pe bohat saare logon ka mazaak uraya gaya he sirf angrezi sahi na likhne ki wajah se. Aakhir kab hum sab is inferiority complex se nikal paayen ge? Aur English ko kab tak hum international language ka darja de kar apni regional language ko degrade karte raehin ge?  
Ab hum angrez ke ghulaam nahi balke azaad insaan hain jo sirf ameeron ki aur wardi walon ya afsaron aur siaasat-daanon ki ghulami karte hain. (Why English?) and (Why not Urdu?)
 
 
Aap aik Turkish ko yeh keh kar dekhiye ke English mein baat karo, ya ohir aik French ya German ko yeh keh kar dekhiye ke English mein likho, aur phir jawaab suniye ga.  
 
Aur phir aik baat aur he ke aqal ki baat jis ko smajh aani hi nahi, aap chahe jo bhi language use kar lein. Misaal ke taur pe aap dekhiye ke Arab ke rehne waale Arabi language ke Quran ko aaj tak samajh nahi sake. Ya phir yahan aise kai log hain jo itne saalon baad bhi apne aap ko Yahudi aur Eesai aalimon ki shakhsiyat parasti se nikaal naho paaye lekin aqal ki baat ko logic ke saath pesh karne wale ki baat sun ne waalon per shakhsiyat parasti ka ilzaam lagane mein der nahi karte.  
 
Mohtarma UmeAimon saahiba, yeh siaasat ka akhaara nahi he balke aik forum he jahan hum sab kuch seekhne aaye hain. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx  
 
Main phir kehta hoon;  
Ya phir yahan aise kai log hain jo itne saalon baad bhi apne aap ko Yahudi aur Eesai aalimon ki shakhsiyat parasti se nikaal naho paaye lekin aqal ki baat ko logic ke saath pesh karne wale ki baat sun ne waalon per shakhsiyat parasti ka ilzaam lagane mein der nahi karte. (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx  
 
Yeh mission positive andaz mein hi chal raha he aur chalaane wale ise positively chalaa rahe hain. Pehle bhi kai log siyaasat karte karte yahan se bhaag gaye xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.  
 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxAap ne kaha;  
And please let Dr. Qamar stay human as he never claimed otherwise.  
 
Aap sirf yeh bataiye ke is ilzaam ka kya matlab he?

Dear Umeaimon and Modudi,  
 
First Umeaimon, I am afraid you have the wrong impression that I have in anyway changed my tone, maybe you think that because a certain person/persons have attacked me as being a Sadia of Our Beacon that I have "changed", Rest assured this is not so, this u can see from my previous posts. There should be critisim/evalution of one's stance, but this need not be repeated again and again. We are all adults here :)  
 
I have taken strong action where it was needed, edited or removed posts where there were acusations with the use of strong language, but unfortuneatly this could not be done to those "higher up" by myself, but it was done by Adnan.  
 
Now to Mr.Modudi,  
 
It seems strange that you yourself react to the english language used on this blog, need I say more.  
 
I will not get into further discussion, there is no need to, but I would like to inform you that even in Germany, Turkey and so on, the english language is given a priority when taught in schools, colleges or universitys. We live in the global village, all of us paindos with the knowledge of english at one level or another.  
I am happy to inform you that we have members as far as Indonesia, India, Germany, Denmark, and many more countries, they are all eager to learn from Aastana. What they dont need is to see personal attacks, threats and dis-honour on this blog.  
 
Your comment regarding Umeaimon will be edited by myself, we dont need to beat around the mulberry bush.

Salaamun Alaikum Mohtarma Maniza saahiba,  
(Nihaayat Ehtaraam ke saath) maaf kijiye ga lekin jaisa aap ne kaha he waisa bilkul nahi he. Germany, France, China aur Turkey waghaira main apni regional language ko prefer kiya jaata he. Agar aap ko meri baat pe doubt he to please internet pe in saari countries aur in key culture ke baare mein parh leejiye. Aap ko jawaab mil jaye ga. Waise main khud bhi bohat saari developed countries mein ja chuka hoon jahan pe log English bolne waale ko bari ajeeb si nazron se dekhte hain aur us ki baat samajh nahi paate jab tak interpreter saath na ho. Meri baat ko ghalat mat samjhiye ga please, Main English ke khilaaf nahi hoon, balke main aise mindset ke khilaaf hoon jis mein English ko hum log apni majboori samajhte hain. Aap manein ya na maanein aap ki apni marzi he.  
 
UmeAimon saahiba, main phir apna sawaal repeat karta hoon. Aur main repeat karta rahoon ga jab tak aap khul ke yeh na bata dein ke aap ki baat ka matlab kya he.  
 
Aap ne farmaya;  
 
And please let Dr. Qamar stay human as he never claimed otherwise.  
 
Aap sirf yeh bataiye ke is ilzaam ka kya matlab he?  
NAUZOBILLAH kis ne kya bana diya he mohtaram Dr. Qamr ko?

In my opinion, freedom of speech only excludes degrading/ hating comments aimed other peoples being. We can use Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as "the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression."  
 
"The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write, and print with freedom, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law."  
 
Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948, states that:  
 
"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."  
 
I Agree with UmeAimon that positive (constructive) criticism should never be hindered but encouraged fully- but then ones should be afraid if ones criticism is questioned. Again, constructive criticism should be welcomed by everyone no matter who it may concern.  
 
I did not fully understand the comment that we should let Dr Qamar Zaman being human, I understood as intimation that he is worshiped. This is not the case, as brother Moazzam is a student of Dr Uncle just like others, but he is brave enough to air his understanding when based on own studies when he has responded to questions.  
 
I am a student of Aastana too, so far I agreed to the concepts presented because they appeal to my understanding, and fulfills my needs for information, all my questions are answered- but that does not mean I worship those I agree with.  
 
But I hope this forum won’t be transformed into another our beacon forum. I really don’t want their bacon.  
 
Freedom of speech, freedom of thoughts, freedom of questions, freedom of disagreements, freedom of cross examine thoughts AND to cross examine criticism, constructive or not, freedom to cross examine different thoughts, that’s what’s needed.  
 
We have to keep in mind that we are promoting the Quraniq idea of equality, but to convince others to build a society based on this concept, we MUST BREATH LIFE INTO THIS CONCEPTION AT THIS FORUM FIRST.  
 
It is a suggestion, what say?
