Today the Naqshbandi Sufis, in the person of Hisham Qabbani warned us in the 90's about the salafi freaks of Al Qaeda, but never the less we should all be aware of how great men in Islam saw the relationship of muslims to kufrs.He was the Pearl of the Crown of the Knowledgeable Saints. He was the Treasure of Those who Came Before and of Those who Came After. In him were combined all their favors and generosity. He was the Sinai of Divine Manifestation, the Furthermost Lote Tree of the Unique Knowledge, and the Fountain of the Hidden Prophetic Knowledge. He was the Genius of Scholars and he was the Sultan of the Earth, which smiled when he was born and was honored by his existence. He was the perfect Perfected Guide. He was the Caller to Allah's presence, the One Qutb and the Unique Heavenly Imam. He was the Reviver of the Second Millennium, Sayyidina wa Mawlana (our Leader and Master) ash-Shaikh Ahmad al-Faruqi as-Sirhindi, ibn ash-Shaikh cAbdul Ahad son of Zainu-l-cAbidin son of cAbdulhayy, son of Muhammad son of Habibullah, son of Raficuddin, son of Nur, son of Sulayman, son of Yusuf, son of cAbdullah, son of Ishaq, son of cAbdullah, son of Shucayb, son of Aad, son of Yusuf, son of Shihabuddin, known as Farq Shah al-Qabidi, son of Nairuddin, son of Mahmud, son of Sulayman, son of Mascud, son of cAbdullah al-Waci al-Asghari, son of cAbdullah al-Waci al-Akbar, son of Abdu-l-Fattah, son of Ishaq, son of Ibrahim, son of Nair, son of Sayyidina cAbdullah (r), the son of Amir al-Mu'minin, the khalif of the Prophet , Sayyidina cUmar al-Faruq (r).
Sirhindi's views on the rest of the kufrs, not jewish was scarcely more beneficial.
He said of himself:
I do not claim to know how muslims who are revolted by all this we see in the world before us will rectify the demands of the Quran and the great scholars who tell them what the Quran means, with the little moral compass alarm going off inside them.Allah unveiled to me the Secrets of the Unique Oneness and He poured into my heart all kinds of Spiritual Knowledge and its refinement. He unveiled to me the Secrets of the ayats of Qur'an so that I found beneath every letter of the Qur'an an ocean of knowledge all pointing to the High Essence of Allah Almighty and Exalted.
"The honour of Islam lies in insulting kufr [unbelief] and kafirs [non-Muslims]. One who respects the kafirs dishonours the Muslims ... The real purpose of levying jiziya on them is to humiliate them to such an extent that they may not be able to dress well and to live in grandeur. They should constantly remain terrified and trembling. It is intended to hold them under contempt and to uphold the honour and might of Islam. ( letter No. 163 of MaktiibCtt-i-Imdm Rabban)
I do know that too many do not hear this alarm, do not have this alarm and do not heed this alarm because they have been taught and have accepted that to reach Allah killing the jew and others is for the benefit of Allah.
Thus Sirhindi's comment:
which appears to be a message of peace and love, has at its beating heart the need to harm and kill those who seek a different path, and most especially those who deny THAT path."It must be known that Allah has placed us under His Obligations and His Prohibitions. Allah said, 'Whatever the Prophet gave you, take it, and whatever he prohibited you, leave it.' [59:7] If we are going to be sincere in this, we have to attain to Annihilation and the love of the Essence. Without these we cannot reach this degree of obedience. Thus we are under another obligation, which is to seek the Way of Sufism, because this Way will lead us to the state of Annihilation and the love of the Essence. Each Order differs from the other in its states of perfection; so too does each Order keep the Sunnah of the Prophet and have its own definition of what that entails. Every order has its own way of keeping the Sunnah of the Prophet . Our Order, through its shaikhs, requires us to keep all the commands of the Prophet and to leave all the things he prohibited.
To love god, kill the jew.
To love god, insult the kafir
To love god, humiliate other.
And the authority for this, is the immutable perfect word revealed to man in the Quran?
Are the anchors on CNN, Fox, MSNBC and MSM wondering anything?
Why the Chabad?
Are you kidding?
