Delivered on 09-05-1437
Dr Murtaza bin Baksh [hafidhahullah Ta’ala) not so long ago openly freed himself from a mistake, whereby he had recommended ‘Mufti’ Mubashir Ahmed Rabbani of Jama’at ud-Dawah [formally known as Lashqar-e-Tayyibah that has been labelled a terrorist organisation]. In his initial statement Dr. Murtaza gave several reasons why he did this. Mainly due to the fact that the reality of this individual hadn’t reached him.
The ‘Mufti’ issued a short response to this in his and the defence of the organisation for whom he is the main issuer of fatawa. On the 2nd of Jumada al-Ula 1437 the noble doctor issued a response which we titled: The Reality of ‘Mufti’ Mubashir Ahmed Rabbani & his Association with Jamaat-ud-Dawah – Dr Murtaza bin Baksh which can be found here: http://goo.gl/MDjst0.
As per usual once the lecture had been upload upon the official website of Dr. Murtaza bin Baksh (www.ashabulhadith.com) and my recording at the above referenced link. The internet went wild. Statements have been made, people have been infuriated by the fact that how dare this ‘medical doctor’ have the audacity to criticise the ‘mufti’ of (what we regard a being from our Ulema) a Kharijee organisation. All over the world, threats and challenges are being made, inviting Dr. Murtaza to a debate on his words about the deviance of the ‘mufti’ and the organisation that he issues fatwas for, and is upon the ‘Aqeedah and Manhaj of. One such challenge was issued by a hasty and somewhat ‘foolish’ young individual. Listen to Dr. Murtaza bin Baksh’s response from the Book of Allah, Sunnah of His Messenger and the Manhaj of the Salaf. They claim that that our Ustadh said: ‘He who prays the Janaza of a Kharijee, is in fact a Kharijee.’ We have yaqeen (certainty) that they have, either made a mistake or told and out-and-out lie upon Dr. Murtaza. They claim that their praying of the Janaza of Usama bin Laden was permissible as he died a Muslim and there was no harm in doing this. Listen to what the noble doctor quotes from the words of ‘Hafiz’ Muhammad Saeed [may Allah rectify his affairs] the spiritual leader of the group, the day after Usama bin Laden died and his organisation held funerals of absentia all over Pakistan for this Kharijee. Dr. Murtaza bin Baksh, may Allah strengthen him upon khair and enable him to stand firm with the aid of Allah and his brother and sister of Ahlus-Sunnah, concluded his 18-minute response by challenging them to prove that he indeed did made the statement that they claim. His official recording can also be found here: http://goo.gl/p2gcER It won’t be long until we receive a response, what else can we expect from such individuals.
In the meantime, I have a question for you (the readers): Do you truly want to start learning your religion as understood by our Salaf in the Urdu language? Visit the following three links:
