Devotion to Muhammad (SAWW) or egotism? Views of an eminent Deoband Maulana Mehmudul Hasan

The following extract is from a book which is a collection of  memories of Maulana Manazir Ahsan Gilani, a prominent Deobandi scholar, writer and acdemic. During his studies in Darul Uloon Deoband, he was taught by prominent Ulemas like Maulana Anwar Shah Kashmiri, Shiekul Hind Maulana Mehmudul Hasan and many others.

The extracts below are from the part where he wrote about Maulana Mehmudul Hasan. While describing the Hadith about love and devotion to Hazrat Muhammad (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam), Maulana sahib describes our common attitudes regarding this, our violent reactions to any true of false news about the blasphemy, and defines the parametres of  true love to Muhammad (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam).

  1. With reference to “Hadith about love and devotion to Hazrat Muhammad (Sallalahu Alaihi WA ALEHI Wasallam), with due respect, may I would like to state few points.

    I would support the logic (Reason) stated by Maulana Mehmudul Hasan, of being flared of a normal person on Blasphemy of Hazrat Muhammad (Sallalahu Alaihi WA ALEHI Wasallam). Yes majority of us are not flared by Blasphemy of Hazrat Muhammad (Sallalahu Alaihi WA ALEHI Wasallam), rather infact we un-consciously take it on our ego, which Maulana Mehmudul Hasan has pointed as “HAM”

    Otherwise we would have followed every directive of Hazrat Muhammad (Sallalahu Alaihi WA ALEHI Wasallam). We choose to follow only those directives which match our “NAFAS”, and leave the rest , trying to hide behind shield that we will get “SHIFAT” and all our sins will be forgiven by “Allah”.

    If the reader of this article doesn’t mind, I may quote the saying of a Non-Muslim Bengali Philosopher Rabinder Nath Tegor. He says:- The Psychology of habitants (Irrespective of their religion) of Indian subcontinent is very strange. They are very conscious about their religion. The discuss with great boom. The deliver speeches. If any one doesn’t agree with them, they turn blazed. They try their best to make him agreed by turning their faces red, widening their eyes and sometimes foaming from their mouth. They are so sensitive that they can sacrifice their lives or smash other one’s life, BUT they never act properly and accordingly in their daily lives as per saying of their religion.

    Is it not the time for us to check ourselves, are we not one of those habitants that Tegore has pointed?

  2. Dear Akhtar..
    Thank you for adding valueable points to the post above. Hope you will interact further on the blog…

    Initial points of your comments were deleted for irrelevance to the issue above. As it were based on POV of particular sect, and were not helping to develop an alternative to the demented enthusiasm shown by the religious Fundos.

    Let us forgive for a while, who stood and betrayed in different times.

    When fanatic mullahs, Peers and Allamas/Ayatollahs can link for a cause,
    why not we….

  3. Dear Ali Arqam
    Thank you for your acknowledgement.
    Those were just a few glimpses from history, which I was trying to expose. It has nothing to do with any sect, or person. It was just about a school of thought.
    And same effort of exposing past history has been done by the film makers of “The Message” which was also given negative comments by the same religious school of thought in Pakistan. Though the script of film was already scrutinized and approved by “Jamia Al-Azhar” Egypt.
    Any way in the great interest of unity of our Pakistani society I don’t mind if some of my submissions are omitted.
    What a pity that we claim to be Muslim and does not know the dictionary meaning of world “Islam” means “Safety”.
    Why we forget another Hadith (Theme) that “A Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hand, other persons are safe.
