but when it became clear that they were not being able to deliver the desired results, they took up the reins themselves. In 1850, the first of the Christian Principals Dr. W.D. Springer M.A, took office of the Principal, after that, over the next 76 years, 27 Christian Orientalists, in successive order, held the highest administrative office of this madrassah, teaching a lifeless, soul-less Islam to these so-called Muslim population. What irony! Muslims to learn their faith from Non-Muslims! When they were convinced that, this dead, defunct Islam had become imbedded in the hearts, souls and minds of the people, they relinquished the post of the Principal to ‘Alems’ well-versed in the curricula of their very Madrassah. [Source: Reports on Islamic Education in Bengal by-Dr. Sikander Ali Ibrahimy, and ‘Ali’a Madrassah-r Itihash’ by Mustafa Harun, Islamic Foundation, Bangladesh ].The Christian masters executed this masterplan not only in this subcontinent but also in other Muslim counties they occupied militarily. It has been over half a century that, the British have left this sub-continent, yet the system of Islamic Education-devoid of Hedayah, Jihad and soul (Tawheed) introduced by them has prevailed to this day. The Muslims continue to be misguided by it, accept it to be the correct form and observe it with utmost sincerity. Therefore, there is no let-up in the wrath of Allah that has long since descended upon us either.
Our Imam maintains that, those who accept this perverted version of Deen-ul-Islam, this Islam where Jihad and Allah’s all-encompassing Tawheed are absent (as taught by their Christian masters) live in Fool’s Paradise, immersed in Shirk and Kufr. He has drawn the anger of a particular class of people on himself. Because of this truth it is the lot who claim themselves to be the torchbearers of this opposite-directed, perverted version of Islam, the so-called ‘Alem’, ‘Ulema’ society; the same Alems who are divided into hundred different groups over petty ‘Masla-Masaels’, who constantly squabble among themselves to prove one’s superior knowledge over the others’. The defunct, soulless Islamic Education they receive from their Madrassahs does not allow them to become united about any particular issue, let alone strive to establish this way of life over all others unitedly. All they are capable of doing are selling their Christian conceived Islamic education amongst the general population for a nominal price. They sell Islam by way of leading the congregational prayers in mosques, for Jumma and Eid, Tarawih and Janaza, various Milads, delivering religious sermons (Wa’z), issuing religious decrees/decisions (Fatwa) and various other methods.
Whereas the Quran declares-“Lo! Those who hide of the scripture which Allah Hath revealed and purchase a small gain therewith, they eat into their bellies nothing but fire. Allah will not speak to them on the day of resurrection, nor will He purify them. Theirs will be a painful doom. Those are they who purchase error at the price of guidance and torment at the price of pardon. How constant are they in their strife to reach the fire!” (Sura Baqarah-174,175)
It is our extreme good fortune, that our Imam, the founder of Hezbut Tawheed movement has been able to realize the true form of Islam as revealed by the Almighty to His final Messenger (SM) more than 1400 years ago. Our Imam founded this movement with the aim of bringing the true faith to light before us, his people so that we are able to revert to it from the perverted, opposite Islam taught to us for so long by the Mullas and the Christian Colonialists.
We, those whom the Almighty in His Infinite Mercy has caused to understand and accept the true faith, abandoned the perverted version practiced for so long-are truly blessed, truly fortunate. For, we are the people in whose hearts the Merciful One has allowed the true faith to take root, opened our eyes so that we see, the rightful Islam as revealed to Allah’s Messenger (SM). We were lost, wandering in search of truth, the real Islam and we were clinging to the perverted.
