BISMILLAH HIR REHMAN NIR RAHEEM
ASSALAM BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ISLAM
Tilawat e Kalaam e paak is without doubt the most ahsan deed one does any time of the day, any month of the year , anywhere , at home or in the masjid . During the month of Ramazaan , it is all the more superior to recite the verses of Qora’an in the morning , in the evening or in the night . There is no act in this world which could be parrallel in sawab . But it is also a hard fact , no one can question it that , Qoraan recitation, saum, salaat are all governed by rules . Pakeezgi is one . Qora’an recitation could be individual or in group , at home or in Masjid any where , anytime , BUT NEVER NEVER in a manner which was introduced by some one unauthorised to do do any bida’a in ahkaam e deen .
Deen e Islam was completed and finalised with the verse of Akmalto . Now after this no one not even the Rasool e Kareem (saaws) ever did any addition , alteration in tha ahkammat e shariyah . How come,then, that a new congregatery prayer was introduced by somebody . 8,11 or 20 rakats , the uncertain number in itself show doubt .
The Rasool e Kareem (saaws) never left the words that after me you can innovate a new congregatory prayer . However ahsan , good and noble , an innovation is an innovation , and it is a bida’at , no one is authorised to introduce it and any one who did is an innovator , a bida’ati , a grave sinner and every one knows where he is destined for and where all those who follow the infidel ?
