The depth 0 f his feelings, the grandeur 0 f ardour, the style 0 f writing, the mode 0 f expres sion, the power 0 f addres s and the pas sion 0 f reformation with which the resp ected Arneer has edited the editorials 0 f the Magazine, is worthy 0 f him only.

daughter or sisters. She develops warm and passionate love with her husband and children. As Allah has endowed her with the capacity of efficaciousness, he has also blessed her with the quality of influencing others. As she conquers her husband wi t h her s wee tan d kin d t e m per and her c 0 que t ry, she influ enc es he r chi Id re n m any tim es bette r tha n it du e to the deep abiding bond of motherhood. That is why a thinker says "The ha n d that ro cks th e c rad le is the han d that ru I es the world." And only that woman can be the true ruler who is properly educated and trained.

She gets the opportunity of remaining the maiden teacher of her children for four or five years. The children also get the chance of being her sole disciples one by one and get education and training in her kind and compassionate lap. Hence, the education and training of the new generation depends mainly upon woman.

Worthy Ameer Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Masood Azhar started and ignited the movement of Jihad in an age when the whole pagan world is against it single-mindedly and is plotting and conspiring to wipe it out. For this purpose, he began to make efforts for the revival of Jihad, domination of the Muslim Ummah and promulgation of Islamic System through speech,

INTRODUCTION

A WORD ABOUT THE BOOK

It is said, "If you educate a man, you educate an individual; if you educate a woman, you educate a family." The saying still holds good. The reason is that man gets busy in earning his livelihood and in other affairs of life after getting education and training. Therefore he is left with neither any opportunity nor leisure to work for the correction and reformation of the other members of the society. On the other hand, Allah has created woman totally different from man. When she grows up and emerges as a wife or mother leaving behind the stage of

In this way, they are becoming the cause of reformation and correction of a number of Muslims sisters. Keeping their utility in view, the honourable Ameer thought of including the English reading sisters in its circle of reformation. It is hope d that this editorial book will further be translated into many other languages of the world.

F or this purpose, the respected Ameer ordered me to translate the book "0 Muslim Sister! II into English so that the English speaking community may also get benefit from it and reform itself. Considering it a great auspiciousness and a source of winning Allah's good-will, I have made this humble attempt to convert it into English trying to maintain the real spirit of th e writi ng s. Now, the En gl is h trans lati on of the boo k is in your hands. Each quality which it bears is due to the grace and blessings of Allah the Almighty and each defect which it bears, is due to the translator. May Allah grant this book with acceptance and make it a source of reformation and correction of the Muslim Sisters and my salvation.

In his view so long as education, training and correction on the part of women is not started, no real progress can be possible, no success can be achieved and no reformation of the society can be effective. Keeping this object in view, he started the publication of the monthly "Banaat-e-Aisha ~II which won laurels and appreciation beyond limits because the sisters gave it a warm reception with open arms. The number of its volumes, its po pu la rity and th e letters written by the s iste rs afte r acti ng upon the teachings of the magazine and reforming themselves is a clear proof of the passionate response of the sisters.

The book in hand "0 Muslim Sister! II is a beautiful selection of the editorials of the monthly "Banaat-e-Aisha ~II.

T he mothers used to recite Epics of Jihad (Holy War) while they suckled their babies. They thems elves prepared their young one s for the batUe- field. At that time, the brothers would be the warriors and the sister s us ed to be their supp orters and guards.

Sweet and sacred words 0 f love were us ed to serve as a subtle and

tender deep -ro oted bond between Allah and His people (men and women). Both the husband and the wife would be faithful to each other heart and soul. But alas! T hat golden age has now b ec ome a far - fetched fable. The memories 0 f that glorious and enviable time seem day-dreams in this age 0 f shameles snes s and debauchery. Our sister who us ed to be the mo del 0 f mo desty, contentment, patienc e and sanctity is now b ec oming an unfortunate picture 0 f avidity, c ovetousnes s , avaric e and the worst symb 01 of c owardic e. Now this mirror 0 f mo desty and piety is b ec oming fo ggy and misty and is ab out to crash. The Allah-worshipping girl who writhed the whole night in prayer s to have communion with Allah, is now anxious to have a glanc e at men rather the matter has gone to 0 far at some plac es. Some 0 f the Muslim ladies fell so deep in the dirty trench of modem civilization that they became totally blind to bashfulnes s and modesty and cons equenUy the daughter 0 f Amma Ais ha ;., became the centre 0 f attention of the 0 b scene eyes. Then this moat 0 f dirt kept deep ening even more. And now the situation has b ec ome so dis gusting that it has b ec ome very difficult for us to address this so-called Muslim woman with the word 'Sister'. One

THE FI&ST GIFT FOR SISTE&S

Brothers have always been pres enting co sUy and pric eles s gifts to their sisters. This best gift used to be Islamic system and Islamic society. They would have aquired at the cost 0 f their life and 0 ffer it to their sisters. It was then that the sisters, even staying at their homes would enj oy security, p eac e, honour and all the other bles sings 0 f both the world s. If sometimes, they had to come out 0 f the four walls 0 f their hous es, no eye could dare treas on. The veil (Sharaee Parda) was so great a rec 0 gnition 0 f the pious woman that every eye would pay resp ects to her and every arm would b ec ome her guard. Owing to this gift 0 f the brothers, every woman

is not inclined to term this lie entious woman as sister. Still we call her ~th

The Mujahid brothers are thankful to tho s e sisters and henc e before pres enting to them the I slamic system and I slamic culture, they are 0 ffering them this first gift, the monthly "Banaat- e- Aisha ~I (daughters 0 f Ais ha ) so that our sister s, in the reflection 0 f this mirror 0 f Banaat- e- Aisha ;.,

that she may realize her dignity!

I think the brothers should be mo stly accus ed for what has befallen and is befalling the sisters. Frankly sp eaking, the brothers did not 0 ffer any sacrific e. They neither gave them the great pres ent 0 f the Islamic social

duties to p erfonn so that they may be attached to the holy task 0 f Jihad. Ivlany 0 f them have demanded 0 f starting practical training for Jihad. While some 0 f the ladies have expres s ed the desire to lend a helping hand in the maintenanc e 0 f the memb ers 0 f the families 0 f the IvIartyrs. Some ladies want to 0 ff er their s ervi c es in s p e ec hand writin g .

with ghayr-mehram (from whom parda (veil) is done). You need not mingle with them in the dec eption 0 f D een. Give your heart to Allah, stamp it with staunch faith then s ea1 it and come shoulder to shoulder with us in the natural speed of this movement which appears very slow.

Rememb er, by violating the injunctions 0 f Shariah, we can neither pleas e Allah nor run a sacred movement. He who brings you in the op en company out of the house, cannot be your brother. Nevertheless, if the incursion 0 f the infidels (kuffar) and unc ongenia1ity 0 f the situation make you follow your brothers to the battlefield, it will be ab s olutely fair rather inevitable.

The duties 0 f both the brothers and sisters are totally different in their nature. So submit yourselves to Islam and Shariah for Allah's sake. Keep it in mind that even the great deeds done after one' s desire are abj ect and mean to Allah and little deeds done against onel s will but ac cording to Allah's injunctions are very noble and honourable to Allah. The monthly II Banaat-e-Aisha ~II is the outset of the movement of the Banaat-e-Aisha ~.

A Muslim sister who lives in Britain has started looking after the dep en dant s 0 f th e Martyrs. A s ist er in At to ck ha s start ed the work in connection with Jihad and training 0 f children. Ivlany 0 f the ladies have started to collect contributions (Amwal) for the Mujahideen. Some 0 f the ladies have started making efforts in educating family memb ers. On the other ha nd, many 0 f th e la di es ar e very en thu s ia s ti cally runnin g the campaign to free their families 0 f the vic es 0 f unveiling, TV, VCR, satelh te channels and many other evils. Some ladies are working for the circulation of th e Magazine II J ais h" and are al s 0 di stri bu tin g rec or ded cas sette s 0 f sp eeches . Ivlany 0 f the ladies, with lic enc ed ammunition, have recieved rifle training from their brothers and husbands. The pas sion was worth seeing on the eve of "Eid-ul-Azha". Ivlany of the ladies in Karachi kept a strict watch over the skins 0 f slaughtered animals un til the Majahideen 0 f J aish reached to collect th 0 s e skins. Besides all thes e, some ladies have als 0 served the J aish with the help 0 f go 0 d writings and us eful sugge stions. A few parts 0 f this written as s et have been published in the fortnightly IIJ aish".

Beef this inc eption up so much remainin g within the limits 0 f Shariah that the movement may take its start soon and the griefstricken eyes of the Muslims may soon be able to watch the scenario 0 f Eemaan and blis s.

Another Task to Perfonn

Europ e has been the enemy 0 f the woman for thousands 0 f years.

Firstly, Europ e considered her a b east and then snatched away all her rights and called her a filthy being. This cruelty continued for centuries. Then Europ eans made woman a vulgar thing and now she has 10 st everything after undergoing ever new afflictio ns . They snatched away from her the hous e where she ruled, the husband who was loyal to her, the father who loved her dearly, the brother who safeguarded her, the s on who called her O!

of thes e cruelties. Every calamity from AID S to dures s, lab our to op en humiliation is imp os ed up on her and the poor woman is about to be smashed groaning under the burden 0 f thes e calamities.

The Africans ac c epted the servitude 0 f Europ e. The woman there ac c epted this calamity as pro gres s. And the situation has now grown so heinous that the Africans are c omp elled to lead a life wors e than animals. The hi st ory 0 f th ecru el ti es infli ct ed on wo men by the I nfi de1s is very painful and nev er ending. It is ev en mo re so rro w ful that no w Mu slim women thems elves have started lending a helping hand to thes e in fidels. It is just like a hunter who ensnare s a few birds, enslaves them and mo difies even their natural instincts and at last, a time comes when that preyed bird forgets its nation, b ec omes an agent 0 f that hunter and lends a helping hand to the huntsman in entrapping the other memb ers 0 fits lot. In the same way, our women who have fallen a prey to the mechinations 0 f the infidels, have 10 st their feminine dignity and natural status, have b ec ome the agents of the hunters and have taken on the duty 0 f causing humiliation to other women. Thes e troub1e- stricken rather accursed human-monkey s, fa1 s e- smile d, arti fic ia lly - gi ggl ed, pain te d- fac ed, half -nake d and re stles s women can be seen everywhere in the s cho 01 or college, market or street delivering emphatic 1 ec tur es a gains t narr ow - minde dne s s, cons erva tis m, Maulviat (Muslim divinity) and D een (I slam). She starts dis cus sion with the Maulvie (Muslim scholar), then she turns to narrow -mindednes s, then emphas i ses on the demands 0 f the 21 st century and at last she will talk ambitiously of Europe and America's stepping on the moon. Afterwards,

the s elf-sufficiency and modesty which was her emb ellishment, the contentment which was her kingdom, the enduranc e which was her weap on, the gravity which was her dignity, the res olution which was her cavalcade, the courage which was her c onveyanc e and determination which was her highway. Alas! So great a 10 ss! Now, nothing more than the lusty lic entious eyes and busines s like offerings has remained for her. The cruelties 0 f the Europ eans have left woman go 0 d for nothing. The real men tali ty 0 f th e white hunts man who always talks emphatic ally 0 f th e women's rights and their emancipation is manifest from his maltreatment with woman in the wars. From Japan to Bahrain and America to Europ e, thes e white infidels made woman the target 0 f their lustful desires in their wars and battles and subj ected millions 0 f women to s exua1 drudgery like animals for their soldiers. Thes e nations who are ignorant 0 f the sanctity 0 f the mother and sister and in whom nothing 0 f humanity is found, firstly maddened woman, dragged her out 0 f her hous e and then humiliated her as much as po s sible and afterwards us ed that woman as a bait to entic e other women.

Now, woman is no more than an 0 bj ect to pastime with. Not to sp eak 0 f great things, even wash or bath soap cannot be s old without her picture on it. They made this bles sing 0 f Allah so great a trouble that now they thems elves are repenting. Their civilization, as a p enanc e for oppres sing women, is rapidly pro c eeding to suicide. A baffling and terrific glimp s e 0 f such tyrannies 0 f the white man can be seen in Africa where woman is suffering from thes e painful oppres sions. One shudders to think

She is found ever ready whether she has to pro strate before the graves or temples, to kis s the feet 0 f an immo dest and immoral p ers on called peer ( saint), to work with any ghayr -mahram or b ec ome the victim 0 f lusty lic entious eyes. She regards everyone who takes her out 0 f her home as her well-wisher and she regards anyone who gives her the Quranic advic e to stay at her hous e as her enemy. It is only women who fill up the cash - boxes at the shrines or the pockets 0 f the se fakes.

Would that the Muslims had acted up on the teachings 0 f the Holy Quran! Would that they had moulded thems elves ac cording to it! Would that they had answered the Quranic call for Jihad! I f the Muslims had done so, no tyrant could dare fill gunpowder in the Holy Quran. Now the Muslims have b ec ome mundane beings, fashion lovers and cowards after forgetting the teachings 0 f the Holy Quran, so the tyrants dared play such ins o lent devilish trick s with the Holy Quran.

There Vila s a tim e when the Mu slim mo th er s would wrap their young ones in the Quranic light and the teachings 0 f the Surah Anfaali rsr:

Jt;.;I) and Surah Baraat( .,,::...I..{UY) would infus e thundering power and rapidity in their arms. Henc e, no one dared 10 ok at the Holy Quran with nasty eyes. But when the mothers dis carded reading and comprehending the Holy Quran rather they b egan to feel pride in b ec oming Air H 0 stes s es I and b egan to enj oy being unveiled, there were b om to them cowards who could not confront the Infidels. Thes e 0 fspring were p owerles s, helples s, anti -reli giou s and cowards who s old their D een for a few coins.

Maulana Ab dul Maj eed Pat el VilaS martyred a few days ago. The Publishing hous e 0 f J aish fell prey to a bomb explo sion. The efforts to involve the young men of the J aish into the alembic of terrorism and sectarianism were ignited. The sensual and s elfish enemies 0 f Jihad, with the help 0 f their paid agents, were activated. Under thes e circumstanc es,

IvI:irza Qadiani into piec es, is supplied from this publish er and cons equently, the Muslim 0 f to day has again start ed understanding the true spirit 0 f Jihad. The teaching 0 f this book has been started in the mo s ques and academies and the universal mes sage 0 f Jihad is spreading not only in Pakistan but als 0 in the other countries. The book "F ourty Dis eas es 0 f the Jews II shows the pious path 0 f I slam to the Muslims. The books on Jihad which have put the J ihadi mes sage 0 f the Holy Quran before the Muslim Ummah in simple words, are supplied from here. The result is that not only men but als 0 women are anxious to show their valour in the field 0 f Jihad. Thes e ladies are 0 ffering their sons and Jewellery for the grandeur 0 f I slam and protection 0 f the Muslims. Moreover, millio ns 0 f cas s ettes rec orded with sp eeches on Jihad which are guiding the Muslims to the way 0 f honour and greatnes shave been spread all over the world. Thes e rec orded sp eeches are als 0 protecting them from the dis eas es 0 f irreligiousnes s. neghgenc e and c owardic e. The enemy has not been able to stop this mes sage 0 f Jihad despite his best efforts becaus e this message is the call not only 0 fan individual but the sc ent of the blo od of martyrs which can neither be suppres s ed nor wip ed out. This is the mes sage 0 f the Holy Quran who s e pr ot ec ti 0 n Allah ha s taken 0 n Hims el f. Cons eq uently, the enemy ha s b ec ome petulant and is attacking the books and cas s ettes, but he do es not know that this pro clamation do es not beggar books and cas s ettes. Rather in my opinion, thos e bo oks and cas sett es are bles sed enough to have the honour 0 f bearing the mes sage 0 f Jihad. This call is the voic e 0 f emotions and a bawl des c ended from the skies. Bomb explo sions cannot stop this

piec e 0 f writing was a religious call to youngmen. Its eems as if it was waiting for the inception of the publication of Banaat-i-ksha~. Now this writing is extracted from the book "Muskaratay Zakhm" (under c ompilati on) and is being pres ented for publication with the hop e that its message will be acted up on. At that time, I had addres sed only the youngmen. Now all the ladies are also its address ees because this polytheistic fire cannot be extinguished without the sinc ere co - op eration 0 f the whole family. Here is the article written behind bars:

"Extinguish This Fire.11

In the near past, a man who lived in a village in the Indian Provine e of Ra ji sthan, died. His heirs seemed to have pledged an oath to revive the custom 0 f II SA T I II but they were afraid 0 f the government and the p olic e. Henc e, well-armed guards were app ointed around the whole village and all the routes to the village were blo eked. Afterwards, the young widow 0 f the dec eas ed was pinioned with rop es alon g with her dead husband and was thrown into the fire to burn to ashes.

This cruel and brutal rite is regarded as a divine worship in th e Hindu religion.

Most 0 f the tenets 0 f Hinduism are prone to crush and diss ect

ins c ens e sticks. There were mugs and retorts 0 f chro ot and hemp on the

mankind which bring ab out only dis grac e and humiliation. T he Hindus are very flexible and adaptable people, they mix up every where due to their adap ta bili ty . As their reli gi on is ba sed mer ely on fa bl es an d fic ti on s without any solid foundations, they, without any hesitation, ac c ept many 0 f

oppression on women and the curse of dowry.

Caste system and clas s - distinction has been deep ro otedly in vo gue among the Hindus to a painful extent. Ac cording to their sacred books, the Brahmans were born from god's mouth, the Khatarie's from the arms, the Vaish from the belly and Shudars from the feet. The land was the po ss ession of the Brahmans and the Shudars were their slaves. The Shu dars or Dalats wer e that maj 0 ri ty sect amo ng th e Hind us wh 0 were considered wors e than animals. The well from where they drank water was considered impious, and utensils which they us ed for eating were regarded as filthy. Their entry into the temples was prohibited. They had been deprived 0 f many other human rights.

Keeping this severity 0 f circumstanc es in View, "BABA MvlEEDK..t..R" the leader of the Dalats, advised all the Dalat Hindus to give up their reli gi on and embrac e I slam. This decision struck the Hindu leader Gandhi J ee like a thunder bolt. He knew that the Brahmans were very few in number. If all the Dalats gave up Hinduism, the Brahman's will become a small mino ri ty in I ndia. Hen c e, Gandhi J ee went 0 n hung er strik e and persuaded the Hindus 0 f the high rank to grant a few rights to the Dalats. As a result, the Dalats were given the name 0 f "Hari Junn II which means god's offspring. They were also granted some other so-called few rights. In this way, they caus ed a division among the Dalats. The only target and stres s was that the Dalats should not tum into Muslims. At last, II B AB A MvlEEDIITR" changed his decision. He, with ten thousand people, embrac ed Bu ddism as a religion whereas other Dalats adopted the name 0 f

thes e holy people so that they may rec ommend our cas es to God. I dols are nothing but merely a s ourc e 0 f conc entrating attention. II Same is the cas e with our people who are influenc ed by polytheistic germs. They als 0 say, "Access to Allah is impossible without saints and seers. II The Hindus offer such a mis conc eption even 0 f God as is beyond des cription. Same are the ideas 0 f our people influenc ed by them.

Islam has never degraded the beloved ones of Allah. Its only injunction to all people is to beg merely 0 f Allah. Saints only direct and guide us to our Lord. They never levy any tax on us for our guidanc e to Allah, rather they show us the direct route to have acc ess, but these mis c onc eptions are to be regretted. Would that the Muslims may understand the reality!

When we witnes s ed the Hindu celebrations 0 f D eva1i and Holi, we came to know 0 f the reality 0 f the tradition 0 f crackers and scintillating sticks on the eve 0 f II Shab - e- Baraa t. II In the beginning when we us ed to notic e the scene 0 f fireworks on the eve 0 f Shab - e- Baraat, we would think, II They do not have even the remotest relation with I slam. How did thes e things gain ground among the Muslims? II As an answer to it we can say that there are two po s sibilities. Either the Hindus instigated the Muslims on it or the Muslims tried to c omp ete with them and as a result, it became a regular, deep ro oted tradition.

The Hindus promulgated not only thes e few polytheistic traditions among the Muslims but als 0 trans ferred their two great social evils among a big sect 0 f the Muslims; one is the division into caste system; sec ond is

In this way, no one was either dis grac ed or insulted rather their status was rais ed to a great extent. I f all the brothers and sisters deal with each other in this way, the fire 0 f dis cord between the brothers and sisters can easily be extinguished.

The Holy Prophet # married several times after his marriage with Hazrat Aisha;" . Still there was no narrow -mindnes s or reduction in resp ect for the Holy Prophet #, b ecaus e she knew that he # was doing all this in compliance with Allah's injunctions.

A few hours ago, a poor lady in Karachi, sent all her jewellery for the sake of Jihad. Her husband's monthly income is about Rs. 2500 which is equal to nothing in a city like Karachi. This contented and thankful lady , instead 0 f showing ingratitude, taunting her husband with low inc ome and begging 0 f people, donated all her jewellery for the sake of Allah's Deen. The Lord does not deprive those who donate in His way. May Allah bless this great sister with go 0 d reward and shower His sp ecial bles sings on all the members of that family.

So long as his fortitude is c onc erned, Allah had bles sed him abundantly with this great bles sing. He was the son 0 f a great Mujahid and the blo 0 d 0 f Jihad ran in his veins. Let us read a faith-increasing incident 0 f his patienc e. This incident may als 0 bles s us with many things.

Governor (Ameer) Walid Bin Abdul Malik, during his Caliphate, invited him to come to Damas cu s. He ac c epted the 0 ffer and went there with his elder son. The Caliph received him warmly. He was already very fond of his visit s and company. The Caliph and the Damas cun's were showering their pas sions 0 f love on him that the hour 0 f his trial started. This test was both with regard to his offspring and his body. His son went to Walid Bin Ab d -ul-Malik' s stable to see his hors es. One 0 f the hors es went out 0 f control and hit him so hard that he died on the sp ot.

Nos 0 oner had the grieved father Harrat Urwa buried his s on than there app eared a b oil on his fo ot and as a result, the thigh became swollen. The Caliph sent for physicians but the malady was incurable. Henc e, the physician s decided to cut away the thigh so that the p ois on 0 f the s ore may not spread through the rest of the body. An expert surgeon was sent for. He, with a sharp knife to cut the m u sc1e and a saw to cut the b one, reached at onc e. The physicians suggested to give him an intoxicating drug so that he might not feel the pain of the cutting. He said, "I cannot use this prohibited thing for my safety. II The physicians said, "Then we will give you the medicine which may caus e you s ens eles snes s. II He said, II I do not

of 0 ffering prolonged prayers. During day time, he us ed to recite one fourth of the Holy Quran and during the night, he us ed to recite the rest 0 f the same quantity in prayers. His relation with the Holy Quran was so firm that it remained his life long routine from childho 0 d to death that he completed its recitation in two days. Only onc e, throughout his whole life, did this routine break.

Recitation 0 f the Holy Quran, company 0 f the Companion s ~ and the training 0 f Aruma Aisha ~ had made him indifferent to the whole creation. He had learnt the skill 0 f how to beg 0 f Allah. Onc e, when he saw a p ers on offering short prayers, he sent for him and said, 110 my nephew! Don't you need anything from Allah? B Y Allah, I beg everything 0 f Allah in prayers whether it is salt or any other minor thing. II

One 0 f the emblems 0 f true and sinc ere relation with Allah is that man b ec omes generous and patient. It means that he do es not c onc ea1 from the creatures which Allah gives him. Rather he sp ends it generously to thank Allah duly for His bounties. When Allah snatches away something from him and tests him with some mis ery, he remains patient and do es not develop any mis giving or complaint against Allah.

Harrat Urwa had been granted with both 0 f thes e bles sings. He was both generous and patient. He owned a big garden in Madina. He constructed a wall around his garden to protect the trees and fruits. When the fruits rip ened, he demolished the wall at many plac es so that people might easily enter the garden and eat from its fruit and also take away whatever they liked. No doubt, only that p ers on can do soup on whom the

came to the Caliph. One 0 f them was a blind p ers on. When the Caliph desired to know the reas on 0 f the 10 s s 0 f his eyes, the blind man said;

like any part 0 f my body to be cut without feeling pain an d henc e do not want to remain devoid 0 f remunerations for pain. II Seeing this unusual situation, the physicians were surpris ed and sent for a few people. Hazrat Urwa said, IIVVho are thes e people? II The physician said, II Thes e people will hold you when you pull back your fo ot due to the pain b ecaus e that pulling back will be very harmful to you. II He said, II I do not need them.

I laid the baby on the ground and made after the camel. Hardly had I c overed a short distanc e when I heard the cries of the baby. When I turned back, I saw that a wolf was tearing and swallowing the head of the baby. I ran back to rescue him, but the baby had breathed his last and met his Lord. Then I returned to the camel.

II When the Caliph heard his story, he ordered his courtiers to take him to Hazrat Urwa so that he might come to kn ow that there exist more trialed people in the world than he.

Hazrat Urwa hims elf was very patient. When he came to Madina,

in order to stop the b1ee din g. When it v;,;ras wrought to the boiling point, Hazrat Urwa' thigh was dipped into it. This was the time of affliction when due to severe pain, Hazrat Urwa could not recite a few parts 0 f the Holy Quran. This was the only interval in the routine 0 f the recitations 0 f the Ho1 y Q uran. When he rec overed after the op eratio n, he ask ed for hi s severed fo ot and it was brought, he played with it lovingly and said:

o my sisters! The truth is that America IS fit 0 f frenzy would have died its own death at the hands 0 f its natural c owardlines s if our Muslim countries had not sided with America. America is terrified and has grown coward due to her worldly pro gres s . She sees her future surrounded in dan gers, but all th eMus lim c oun tries, their armed fo rc es, th eir 0 il an d capital are op en for her help in order to wip e out the Afghan Muslims.

Think for a while, you will have your heart in your mouth due to the intensity 0 f the situation. The Arab countries supply fuel free 0 f cost to the planes which drop bomb s on the beautiful, irmo c ent Afghan children. The Muslim countries provide sea-ports to them. The voluptuous rulers, traders and Landlords 0 f the Muslim countries pay the pric e 0 f these bomb s and mis siles in the form 0 f their vo1uptuousnes s. I f an American soldier is inj ur ed durin g b om bing, the Airp 0 rt s 0 f J ac ko ba bad an d P a sni an d the Muslim crew there proudly exc el in s ervic e in providing him medical aid.

By Allah, all this is nothing els e for the Muslims than humilia tio n, disgrac e and ignominy. The sighs and cries of the inno cent Afghan children are renting the skies. The lamentations 0 f the oppres s ed are going beyond the skies. We, Pakistanis, are equally resp onsib1e for the mas sacre of our Muslim brothers due to our c owardic e, lethargy and dastardlines s. This is certainly so heinous a crime which has undermined the foundations

The children brought up in thes e same hous es and educated in thes e same s cho ols are the rulers now, who are unable to dis c em Allah I S Omnip otence. Hence, they are pro strating before the Infidels and are making their country a fit target of Allah' s torment.

o my sisters! This situation is to be lamented and regretted. The fact is that we are feeling hateful of ourselves now. We have rendered such training to our countrymen that when they are flattered by the enemy, they readily strike a cheap bargain 0 f their faith for the sake 0 f some timely respect.

o Allahl Protect us and the whole Pakistan from this torment. 0 Allahl All 0 f us are criminals. IvIany people among us are als 0 there who with Afghans are b ec oming the target 0 f terrorism. Thank Allah l The role of the J aish is prais eworthy and commendable in this regard. J aish do es not b eliev e, nor takes part in pro c es sions and s10 gans - chanting, but still the enemy's imp 0 sing restrictions on it shows how great deeds the J aish can do.

o Allah! Do not tonnent us due to our rulers, politicians and voluptuous 1 eaders. We are exonerated to their wrong decisions. We are shedding tears at the troubles 0 f our chaste and honorab1 e Afghan Muslims. o Allahl 0 ur chaste and pious sisters and mothers sp end whole nights on prayer rugs sighing and crying. 0 Allahl Weare not the supp orters 0 f the Infidels.

o my dear sisters! What can we do on this occasion? We should ponder over it and regard the rest of life as precious and do the duties imposed upon us.

(I). Our first and foremo st duty now is to give up sinful actions, beg rep entanc e, worship Allah devoutly, shed tears and implore Allah for the I slamic state of Afghanistan, Hazrat Ameer - ul- Mumineen, T aliban Islamic movement, J aish - e- Muhammad, all the Mujahideen and Pakistan. This is not the time to be negligent rather to awake and pray. On this occasion, TV

The blood 0 f the Afghan martyrs ask, II 0 Pakistani sisters! What wrong have we done to you? I s it a crime to provide shelter to a proud and pious Muslim Sheikh U sama Bin Laden? II

On the other hand the coward, voluptuous, bashles s and bas eles s Pakistani rulers apprehended two great sons 0 f the nation; Yousaf Rarnzi and Aima1 Kaansi, handing them over to the Infidels. Thes e lions now wait for their deaths in the American pris ons .

I t is regretful that all the Pakistani forc e is us ed against their own countrymen. Pill the terror, greatnes s and awe 0 f the Muslims was washed away after handing over thes e true Muslims to the kuffar and as a result the Infidels have been enc ouraged. Henc e, they have b egun to demand U sama Bin Laden; while the Indians have started to demand Muhammad Mas 0 0 d Azhar. Will Usarna be handed over to the polytheists? Can Muslim sisters, daughters and mothers tolerate it? Is U sama the memb er 0 f an heirles s nation? Only for this crime, America is spreading terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan is co-operating with her blindly to curry favour.

Would that we had some solid ground and a reply to satis fy our Afghan brothers and sisters! 0 bashful and chaste Afghan sisters! Weare the real convicts; we are abashed.

Pleas e read a survey 0 f the latest situation.

The greatest deceiver (dajjal) of this age "America" started bombing Afghanistan on the night of Octob er 07, 2001, this horrible bombing continues till the pres ent day i. e. N ovemb er 1 0, 200 1. Americ a

American awe and terror is gradually diminis hing from the hearts 0 f the people and they are comprehending Allah the Almighty' s power, strength, o mnip otenc e and His divine help with the true religious people. Now, the Americ an dollar is devaluing, the Pun eri can so ci ety is pining awa y, her ec on om y is fa cing ever new 10 s s es an d th e Ameri cans are th em s elves feeling sorry 0 f being Americans.

2. The group s who make the Muslims irreli giou s, have always been sp reading venom a gain s t th eMu slim s ch olars and M uj ahi de en . Th e Muslims naturally love the Holy Quran, henc e the man who has Quranic knowledge b ec omes dear to the Muslims. The agents 0 f the Infidels create repugnanc e in the common Muslims against the scholars who have ac quaintanc e with Quranic teachings. As they want to spread 0 b s c enity, nudit y, immo d es ty an d pagani sm am ong th eMus lims, th ey, fir st 0 f all revile the true scholars so that the Muslims may be detached fro m them. Then it b ec omes somewhat easy for them to lead them astray. Thes e people who try to lea d th e Mu slim s as tray, firs t 0 f all spr ea d th e pr op agan da against the scholars that America is at their back. Americ a provides them dollars, motor vehicles and even hous es. Hearing this, the so - called Muslims develop an aversion against the scholars and the Mujahideen and they, without thinking, fall an easy prey to thes e heretic s.

I rememb er well that in the beginning, there was the same kind 0 f propaganda against the T aliban that America ha d generated and nourished them. At that time, many 0 f the so - called thinkers without any true

Fortunately, the situation is to tally opp 0 si te and Americ a is yet una bl e to s core even one perc ent suc c es s in her target. However, the Muslims have claimed a numb er 0 f benefits from this new World War. For example:

1. America met a 10 s s 0 f millions 0 f dollars in the bomb explo sion on World Trade C entre and Pentagon. She was still unable to make go 0 d this 10 s s that her detriments in this war started. The s e detrim ent s are al s 0 estimated not in millions but in billions. A strange unrest and disrup tion pr evail 0 v er Americ a. P e 0 pl e have start ed va ca tin g hi gh buildin gs .

America was one 0 f the greatest idols in the world by who s e worship people were buying for thems elves hell.

might know the hyp 0 crites, unto whom it was said: C orne, fight in the v;,ray of Allah, or defend yourselves. They answered: If we knew augh t of fighting we would follow you. On that day, they were nearer to disbelief than faith. They utter with their mo uths a thing which is not in their hearts. Allah is b est aware 0 f what they hide. Tho s e who while they sat at home, said 0 f their brethren (who were fighting for the caus e 0 f Allah): I f they had been guided by us, they would not have been slain. Say (unto th em 0 Muhammad): Then avert death from yours elves if ye are truthful. II (The Family of Imran 166 -168).

Thes e vers es give us answers to a numb er of questions. The befalling of calamity on the Muslims on the day of the "Battle 0 f Uhud" was a trial. Allah the Almighty was distinguishing between the true Muslims and the hyp 0 crites. The hyp 0 crites were holding festivities when their lives were saved. They were als 0 beside thems elves with joy at the 10 s s 0 f the Muslims and were saying that if they had followed their advic e, they would have been saved. Thes e hyp 0 crites have been allowed to es cap e death for ever if they were truthful. The scenario which thes e vers es are pres enting is that on the one side, there were wounded and plundered Muslims who had to fac e mis eries apparently and on the other side, were the safe and sound hyp 0 crites who were making fun 0 f thes e wounded and afflicted Muslims and feeling pride in their sagacity and wis dom. The Quranic ver s es were revealed in the background 0 f this same scene and a clear pronounc ement was is sued that the wounded Muslims need not worry and the safe and sound hypocrites need not be happy. The question arises here: What else

THE PRESENT SITUATION

IN THE LIGHT OF TEN QURANIC TEACHINGS

A few sacred vers es 0 f the Holy Quran are being pres ented to the Muslim sisters. Thes e vers es will be 0 f great help in understanding the true situation in the midst 0 f the 0 b scene nois e 0 f coloured newspap ers and, by the grac e 0 f Allah, will help in determining the future c ours e 0 faction. Pleas e read the truth from your great and loved Lord and feel happy how us efully He guides us at every step. Allah the Almighty says in the Quran:

1. II That which b efe11 you on the day when the two armies met was by p ermis sion 0 f Allah; that He might know the true believers; and that He

106

105

increas ed the faith 0 f them and they cried: Allah is sufficient for us! Mo st exc e11ent is He in whom we trust. So they returned with grac e an d favour from Allah, and no harm touched them. They followed the go 0 d pleasure 0 f Allah and Allah is of infinite bounty. It is only the devil who would make (men) fear his partisans. F ear them not, fear Me, if you are true believers. II (The family of Imran 172 -175).

A few things have been explained in thes e vers es.

i). The true believers do not fear the armies and power 0 f the Infidels.

It is only the devil who frightens the Muslims 0 f the strength 0 f the kuffar.

The Muslims should give the pro 0 f 0 f their true faith and not fear the Infidels but fear only 0 f one Allah.

The Muslims should not be dej ected and should not 10 s e heart at a slight defeat and affliction.

Allah says at another plac e:

4. IIHow should I fear that which ye setup beside Him, when ye fear

n).

iii).

iv).

v).

The Muslims who trust in Allah and stand firm in the battlefield even after rec eiving wounds or meeting defeat for the time being, are victorious.

can the Muslims do than being sorrowful, worried and disapp ointed while a large numb er 0 f Muslims have been slain. The answer to this question is revealed from the skies in thes e words:

2. II Think not 0 f tho s e, who are slain in the way 0 f Allah, as dead. Nay, they are living. With their Lord, they have provision. Jubilant (are they) b ecaus e 0 f that which Allah hath bestowed up on them 0 f His bounty: rej oicing for the sake 0 f tho s e who have not joined them but are left behind: that there shall no fear come up on them neither shall they grieve. They rej oic e b ecaus e 0 f favour from Allah and kindnes s and that Allah wasteth not the wage 0 f the believers II (The family 0 f Imran 169 -171)

It is clearly said in these vers es that true jubilanc e has been awarded only to tho s e who have been martyred by the Infidels. Another happines s is for tho s e who although were not martyred yet sto 0 d firm in the battlefield. Sure enough the hyp 0 crites will not be able to es cap e a dreadful death. However, they have been deprived 0 f the death which should be called eternal life. N ow the true believers can easily decide who scored suc c es s and who sto 0 d plucked.

This is the matter 0 f the world hereafter while true p eac e 0 f mind is given only to tho s e who fear only Allah and are not c owed down by the awe of any paganisticpower. Allah the Almighty says:

3. "As for those who heard the call of Allah and His messenger after the harm b efe11 them (in the fight) for such 0 f them as do right and ward 0 ff ( evil), there is great reward. Tho s e unto whom men said: Lo! the people have gathered against you, therefore fear them. But (the threat 0 f danger)

not, so setup beside Allah that for which He hath revealed unto you no warrant? Which 0 f the two factions hath more right to safety? (Answer Me that) if ye have knowledge. Tho s e who believe and 0 b s cure not their belief by wrong doing, theirs is safety; and they are rightly guided. (Cattle 82 - 8 3).

This is Harrat Ibrahim's (!V ~ address to his nation in which he

Deen (religion) and its righteousnes s and henc e they invite death for thems elves in this way. Allah the Almighty answers it that it is not delusion but trust in Allah. The man who has faith in the 0 mnip otenc e 0 f Allah and believes that whatever happ ens from Allah, is totally correct an d justified, b ec omes soc ourageous and brave with regard to the D een.

This vers e was revealed on the eve 0 f the battle 0 f Badr when only three hundred and thirteen (313) Muslims with a few cro oked and broken swords were going to fac e an armed and powerful army 0 flO 0 0 Infidels. Seeing this situation the hyp ocrites had obj ected. The Holy Quran answered clearly.

The defeated and limit ed minded writers and intellectuals 0 f the present day also make fun of the Taliban in the same way. Some people scoff at the T aliban by talking 0 f enumerating swallows in the skies while th e oth er s are c allin g them narr ow - mind e d an d im pru den t. There is sufficient answer in this vers e for thes e foulmouthed people. Tho s e who have made the Jews and Christians their go ds and lords cannot answer thes e vers es. Allah the Almighty says:

6. II 0 ye who believe! Take not the Jews and Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is ( one) 0 f them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrong doing folk. And thou s eest tho s e in who s e heart is a dis eas e rac e toward them; saying: We fear lest a change 0 f fortune should befall us. And it may happ en that Allah will vouchsafe ( unto thee) the victory or a commandment from His pres enc e. Then will they rep ent 0 f their secret thoughts. II (The Table Spread 51- 5 2)

has stated the standard of success, peace and self-confidence. No doubt, only that p ers on is suc c es s ful who s e belief is secure and he has the right to expres s his p eac e 0 f mind. The p ers on who regards others as powerful as Allah the Almighty and adulterates in his faith, des erves no suc c es s and peac e 0 f mind. Keeping this standard in view, this can easily be un ders to 0 d that th 0 s e wh 0 ar e kill ed saving their E emaan (b elie f) ar e suc c es s ful and glorious and tho s e who s ell their belief and are saved for the time being, are plucked. It als 0 comes to be known from this vers e that the true believers are not afraid 0 f the infidels, their might and their go ds. Seeing this situation, the hyp 0 crites are firstly surpris ed: II 0 f what stuff they (true believers) are made that they fear neither 0 f death nor defeat, nor Infidels nor their p ower" . This surpris e 0 f the Infidels sustains for a while then they come down to their inb om wretchednes s and begin to make fun 0 f the Muslims who believe in Allah the Almighty and 0 ffer a challenge to the infidels as Allah says:

5. "When the hyp 0 crites and tho s e in who s e hearts is a dis eas e said: Their religion hath deluded them. Who putteth his trust in Allah (will find that). Lo! Allah is mighty, wise. (Spoils of War 49)

Hazra t Shah Sahib writ e s : S e ein g th e bra very 0 f the Mus lims, th e hypocrites began to censure in this way. Hence Allah said, lilt is not pride but trust in Allah". "(Mauza-ul-Quran)

Hazrat U smaani writes, II Seeing a small clas s 0 f the Muslims, their hel p1e s sn es s with so great bravery an d b 01 dne s s, the hyp 0 crites and the po or - faith ed Muslims b egan to say that thes e Muslims are deluded by their

The Jail was that 0 f my own country but the circumstanc es were totally alien. The sympathizers always remained fearful 0 f their highers (offic ers).

so warm a rec eption and answer to the call for Jihad. Such examples were very rare in the past. The Muslims 0 f every kind, colour, rac e and territory were racing madly towards Jihad which was bringing them out 0 f the deep trenches of differences and collecting them under the flag of unity. There was a strange stonn of frenzy. The mothers themselves began to send their children to the battle field. The sisters would sing Epic s and lullabies 0 f J iha d to their b ro th er s. Th e wives thems elves start ed preparing their husbands for it. A strange and b1es s ed religious atmo sphere prevailed over everythin g. There were fero c iou s and unruly tro op s 0 f the II F e dai II and Jihad was connecting the pres ent 0 f I slam with its past. What was all this? Was it not Allah's blessings on the Mujahideen? Was it not the Muslims I goo d luck and go od fortune? Was it not the fruit 0 f the Mujahideen's sinc ere efforts and sacrific es? I f it is, think for a while whether Jihad has been s oiled within one year and the Mujahideen have b ec ome sola s civious and lecherous? Never! Never! By Allah, Never! This fals e ab omination again st Mu jahi de en ha s been pro pa gated to wip e 0 ut J iha d. 0 nly this aversion practis ed so great atro cities which a common Muslim can never even imagine.

The pr es en t camp ai gn agains t J iha dis multi - dimens io nal with many stages. At the first step, Jihad and the Mujahideen are the target. If (Allah forbid) it suc c eeds (which it will c ertainly not), the next stage will be to hit on the armed forc es and weap ons 0 f the Muslim countries. At the third step, ending up 0 f all the Muslim rulers (although they ar e so - called) and their governments will be the target. I t is their plan to us e the Muslim

Alas! The silly and simple-minded Muslims could not even apprehend the Infidels I underhand games and propaganda. On the other hand the Infidels knew well that Jihad could not be extirpated until tho s e who invite to Jihad were disreputed and dis grac ed. Henc e they, flung filth on tho s e 0 f whom they were afraid 0 f, to defame them so that no one might listen to their speeches and attend to their call and as a result, their cordial c ompas sions might not be able to awaken the Muslims. A lot 0 f Capital was devoted only for this purp 0 s e. Efforts were made to erect a big dam 0 f imputations, notorieties and ac cusations against the echoing and challen ging call for J iha d s 0 that p e op I e might th ems el ve s break th e cas s ettes 0 f Jihad, tear up the books and spit spitefully i. e. they thems elves might hit their own eyes and minc e their own hands with their own teeth.

Millions 0 f Muslims rep ented 0 f their sinful actions and reverte d from the life 0 f debauchery and hyp 0 crisy to piety. A s ens e 0 f religious honour als 0 aro s e in women. So, now there is a large numb er 0 f such true Muslims in India ab out whom it is said that they are the new Mus lims as a result 0 f the demolition 0 f Babri Mo s que. They are practical and honorab1 e Muslims who are ready to lay down their lives for I slam.

The Muslims 0 f south Asia were arous ed due to the auspiciousnes s of Jihad in Afghanistan and Kashmir. The Chechnian and Tajikstani Jihad movement awakened the Middle Asia Muslims. The Bosnian Jihad develop ed a s ens e 0 f honour and action among the Muslims 0 f Europ e. Warmth in the b100 d of the Indian Muslims became visible due to the demolishing 0 f the Babri Mo s que, but the Arabian Muslims were still 10 st in deep slumber. Hence, the spark of Jihad in them was on the whole extinct. The governments there hated rather were horrified by the word 0 f Jihad. The lucky Arab s who had been ordained Jihad, had to pro c eed eith er to Afganistan, Bosnia or Chechnya.

Now, it seems that the lot 0 f the Arab s is changing. The lamentations 0 f the Arab martyrs have suc c eeded in kno eking at the heights of the skies and drawing attention of their Lord. The Iraqi Jiha d has inflamed a s ens e 0 f religious honour among the Arab s. The sparks 0 f honor hidden in the cons cienc e 0 f the Arab s are ab out to get rid 0 f th e ashes 0 f vo1uptuousnes s. The Arab s are now writhing and weeping in rep en tenc e to go to the battlefield. They are ab out to break all the shackles and revert to

Who would go there and listen to the cries 0 f the Bosnian Muslims? Unaware of the sense of honour the Muslims hold, the blood-thirsty-wolves rushed at the weak Bosnian Muslims, but all 0 f their dreams were thrown to the ground when the Mujahideen from all over the world, particularly the Ara bian peninsula, rushed to Bosnia wildly and madly f eeling the pain 0 f the Bosnian Muslims. They eras ed the b orders and trampled the lines 0 f the map s under their feet. The s10 gans 0 f II AlJ ihad! AlJ ihad ! II b egan to res ound in the heart 0 f Europ e. When Jihad atmo sphere prevailed over the earth, the angels and Divine suc c our in the skies als 0 became ac c ordant with them. Then, at last, there prevailed over Europ e such atmo sphere 0 f true belief (Eemaan) and s ens e 0 f honour that in the twinkling 0 f an eye, the lives 0 f thousands 0 f Muslims were changed. The negligent and lethargic Muslims ma de Jihad their Motto, grew bear ds an d rep lac ed jeans with S unnah clothing. No doubt, the Bosnian Jihad became a caus e for religious reform in the Muslims and revival 0 f the grandeur and power 0 f I slam.

On Dec emb er 06, 1992, Babri Masjid (mo s que) situated in Ay 0 dia, in the Indian Provine e of Utter Pardesh, was demolished. This 0 c currenc e was no les s than a horrible storm for the Muslims.

It is such a great b1es sing that if the whole world is sacrific ed for it, the bargain still stands cheap.

This is not the time to fear, show c owardic e and to be suppres s ed by the awe and terror of the power of the kuffar.

Salah-ud-Din Ayubi's country is again becoming the graveyard for the evil ambitions 0 f the Christians. Now, every Muslim is standing by the Iraqi Muslims. 0 Allahl We are pres ent, help the Muslim Ummah. What will be the result 0 f the Jihad 0 f Iraq? There is no s c op e to write or say anything ab out it. Allah is Omnis cient and Supreme and He do es whatever He wishes. Who knew till yesterday how great dis grac e, humiliation and shame America would have to fac e in Afghanistan? My Lord caus ed her vanity and pride to be reduc ed to a mis erable extent. Now, when the magic of her awe and terror is breaking away and her ec onomy is at the verge 0 f bankruptcy, she has tried to restore her awe by attacking Iraq and 0 c cupying the treasures 0 foil. Her estimations are proving fals e and she is facing a heavenly storm and "Fedai" assailants. What will happen tomorrow? We do not know. However the continuation of Jihad is the symbol of Allah being pleas ed. When Jihad comes, it brings with it honour, grandeur and auspiciousnes s. Tho s e who survive, are named the conqueror s while the martyr s enj 0 y the sp e cial h 0 sp ita lit y with Allah. All the Iraqi children, young men and the old are in the battlefield.

Secret preparations were taking plac e to start a great war against the Muslims, but the fact is that this war could no t be hidden. The intellectuals perc eived it. The sagacious people had apprehended it, but what one could do? America, Britain, I srae1 and India were busy in chalking out a crucial plan for this final and fateful war. The plan was very strong and obviously very c onfi dential and secret.

In short, the whole world was to be made Spain; the oil 0 f the Muslim world was to be usurp ed and I slam was to be paralys ed and thrown aside. The plan c ompris ed more conspiracy than an op en fight. Afghanistan, Kashmir, Iraq, Egypt and Saudi Arabia were underlin ed with red while a c ir c1 e wa s drawn aro un d Paki stan.

There is no strong and deep -ro oted disruption in the organizations as is being propagat ed or as is being told to our sisters who love Jihad etc. There is nothing 0 f this sort, all this is an effort to dis courage the Muslims and a conspiracy to defame the individuals whom Allah has made a s ourc e for the revival 0 f D een and Jihad all over the world.

This is the time 0 f trial, this is the time 0 f total trust. The people, who were not mundane in good times, have also not sold out now.

2. To get the Muslims to draw daggers against each other.

Disapp ointment and fear are us ed as a to 01 to caus e the Muslims to fight with one another.

o my great sisters! Do not let disapp ointment and fear enter your hearts. Only that P ers on may be disapp ointed who has no Lord and only thos e should feel fear who is not to meet the Lord after death. The Muslim is always victorious whether he live s or dies. The only condition is that the b eli ever should remain sine erely attached to I slam and Jihad and should not yield to the kuffar due to fear and disapp ointment. Op en the Holy Quran at part four and recite the vers es from 143 to 148. Read their interpretation (Tafseer) in the Tafseer Usmaani or any other authentic Tafseer. M1 of your fear will vanish.

The sane people who have bothered to inquire ab out thes e things from the people who hold "power 0 f the pen ", have bec ome safe from their wickednes s.

Henc e, whatever is 10 st in it; is not 10 st but is ac c epted by Allah.

The workers remain busy with their work all the time, they have no spare time to 0 ffer justifications or to wash away mis givings.

THE POSTAL SYSTEM

During thirteen months I detention, the pro c es s 0 f recieving letters and dispatching answers was nearly hamp ered. I probably replied to only a few letters and then.... after my releas e, this pro c es s could not be restored on the in stan t. Now, Allah b e thank ed, a numb er 0 f lett ers have been rec eived in the last two months and their replies have als 0 been despatched.

The mail rec eived by me c ompris es numerous kinds 0 f letters:

(l) Letters Written by the Prisoners: This is, Allah be thanked, a very important and sacred task, may this pro ces s continue so long as these companions are not releas ed! One copy 0 f the letters which we rec eive is despatched to the families 0 f tho s e pris oners. I f it is imp 0 s sible to s end the

religious love and their liking and blis s c onc erning books, cas s ettes and many other referenc es.

~) Letters of Criticism: Some people write letters to criticis e me through different angles and expres s their wrath. I read thes e letters very carefully and try to analys e whether this criticism is fair or foul. As thes e people do not write their name and epistolary addres s, I am unable to 0 ffer thanks to thes e people. After my release from India, when the framing of this organization was declared, a numb er 0 f pinching and admonishing letters were rec eived. Now, a few anonymous letters are rec eived with referenc e to the pres ent situation.

(7) Inq uisi tive Le tters: IvIany la di es an d gentlemen writ e different questions c onc erning D een and Jihad. Some p eop le ask for a suggestion on the books they should read. IvIany people inquire 0 f different is sues and prop 0 sitions. A numb er 0 f people s end letters asking the interpretations 0 f their dreams IvIany people seek advic e ab out their life and future career or demand some benediction and incantation for the solution of their problems.

(8) Invitation Letters: Some people write letters to invite me to participate in pro c es sions or meetings, wedding cards als 0 include them. The heirs 0 f the martyrs als 0 write letters to visit their hous e s or their 3re3.S.

After reading thes e kinds 0 f letters, you must have estimated how vast the mailing field is and in this age 0 f fast electronic media, how many c onc erns are done through letters. I never consider the letters any burden on me rather it is auspiciousnes s and go 0 d luck and a s ourc e 0 f link with my

All the readers are requested to make it their permanent routine to pray for thes e great p ers ons who are impris oned for the caus e 0 f Allah.

(2) Corrective Letters: The ladies and gentlemen who have pledged an oath 0 f allegianc e for their correction and training, write letters to des crib e their daily routine work. This pro c es s is als 0 very us eful. Allah be thanked, a numb er 0 f Muslims have benefited from it.

(3) Organizational Letters: IvIany people s end us suggestions in connection with the working 0 f the organization. Some people applaud its performanc e while in many other letters, the shortc omings 0 f the or ganiza ti on are al sop 0 in te d out. Su ch letters ar every care fully and minutely read and sorted out. I f there is a complaint against someone, this let ter is sent to the department 0 f the Imp erativ es for Goo dn es s 0 r the responsible members of the concerned department for inquiry. On the other hand, the letters b earing ac c eptable and imp ortant suggestions are put in the meeting of the governing body.

(4) Letters Pertaining to War Letters: The sisters and brothers who nourish a pas sion for Jihad and yearning for martyrdom als 0 write letters to expres s such pas sions and the determination to 0 ffer thems elves for every kind 0 f sacrific e for I slam. There is always an abundanc e 0 f such letters in the mail. Which is a very go 0 d thing!
