Virtues of the Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah


Bismillaah, wal-hamdulilaah, was-salaatu was-salaamu 'alaa rasoolillaah,
Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatuallahi wa barakatuhu
 How do the first ten days of the Month of Dhul Hijjah differ from other days of the year?

The first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah:
Days of virtue and righteous deeds

Praise be to Allaah Who has created Time and has made some times better than others, some months and days and nights better than others, when rewards are multiplied many times, as a mercy towards His slaves. This encourages them to do more righteous deeds and makes them more eager to worship Him, so that the Muslim renews his efforts to gain a greater share of reward, prepare himself for death and supply himself in      readiness for the Day of Judgement.
This season of worship brings many benefits, such as the opportunity to correct one’s faults and make up for any shortcomings or anything that one might have missed. Every one of these special occasions involves some kind of worship through which the slaves may draw closer to Allaah, and some kind of blessing though which Allaah bestows His favour and mercy upon whomsoever He will. The happy person is the one who makes the most of these special months, days and hours and draws nearer to his Lord during these times through acts of worship; he will most likely be touched by the blessing of Allaah and will feel the joy of knowing that he is safe from the flames of Hell. (Ibn Rajab, al-Lataa’if, p.8)

The Muslim must understand the value of his life, increase his worship of Allaah and persist in doing good deeds until the moment of death. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
"And worship your Lord until there comes unto you the certainty." [al-Hijr 15:99] The mufassireen (commentators) said: "‘The certainty’ means death."

Among the special seasons of worship are the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, which Allaah has preferred over all the other days of the year. Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days." The people asked, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?" He said, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 2/457).

Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) also reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "There is no deed more precious in the sight of Allaah, nor greater in reward, than a good deed done during the ten days of Sacrifice." He was asked, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?" He said, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing." (Reported by al-Daarimi, 1/357; its isnaad is hasan as stated in al-Irwaa’, 3/398).

These texts and others indicate that these ten days are better than all the other days of the year, with no exceptions, not even the last ten days of Ramadaan. But the last ten nights of Ramadaan are better, because they include Laylat al-Qadr ("the Night of Power"), which is better than a thousand months. Thus the various reports may be reconciled. (See Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 5/412).

You should know, my brother in Islaam, that the virtue of these ten days is based on many things:
Allaah swears an oath by them, and swearing an oath by something is indicative of its importance and great benefit. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): "By the dawn; by the ten nights" [al-Fajr 89:1-2]. Ibn ‘Abbaas, Ibn al-Zubayr, Mujaahid and others of the earlier and later generations said that this refers to the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah. Ibn Katheer said: "This is the correct opinion." (Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 8/413)

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) testified that these are the best days of this world, as we have already quoted above from saheeh ahaadeeth. 
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) encouraged people to do righteous deeds because of the virtue of this season for people throughout the world, and also because of the virtue of the place - for the Hujjaaj (pilgrims) to the Sacred House of Allaah.


The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded us to recite a lot of Tasbeeh ("Subhan-Allaah"), Tahmeed ("Al-hamdu Lillaah") and Takbeer ("Allaahu akbar") during this time. ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "There are no days greater in the sight of Allaah and in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Him than these ten days, so during this time recite a great deal of Tahleel ("La ilaaha ill-Allaah"), Takbeer and Tahmeed." (Reported by Ahmad, 7/224; Ahmad Shaakir stated that it is saheeh).


These ten days include Yawm ‘Arafaah (the Day of ‘Arafaah), on which Allaah perfected His Religion. Fasting on this day will expiate for the sins of two years. These days also include Yawm al-Nahar (the Day of Sacrifice), the greatest day of the entire year and the greatest day of Hajj, which combines acts of worship in a way unlike any other day.


These ten days include the days of sacrifice and of Hajj.
Question: What must the Muslim avoid during these ten days if he wants to offer a sacrifice?
The Sunnah indicates that the one who wants to offer a sacrifice must stop cutting his hair and nails and removing anything from his skin, from the beginning of the ten days until after he has offered his sacrifice, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "When you see the new moon of Dhu’l-Hijjah, if any one of you wants to offer a sacrifice, then he should stop cutting his hair and nails until he has offered his sacrifice." According to another report he said: "He should not remove (literally, touch) anything from his hair or skin." (reported by Muslim with four isnaads, 13/146)

The Prophet’s instruction here makes one thing obligatory and his prohibition makes another haraam, according to the soundest opinion, because these commands and prohibitions are unconditional and unavoidable. However, if a person does any of these things deliberately, he must seek Allaah’s forgiveness but is not required to offer (an extra) sacrifice in expiation; his sacrifice will be acceptable. Whoever needs to remove some hair, nails, etc. because it is harming him, such as having a broken nail or a wound in a site where there is hair, should do so, and there is nothing wrong with that. The state of ihraam is so important that it is permitted to cut one’s hair if leaving it will cause harm. There is nothing wrong with men or women washing their heads during the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) only forbade cutting the hair, not washing it.


The wisdom behind this prohibition of the one who wants to offer a sacrifice from cutting his hair etc., is so that he may resemble those in ihraam in some aspects of the rituals performed, and so that he may draw closer to Allaah by offering the sacrifice. So he leaves his hair and nails alone until the time when he has offered his sacrifice, in the hope that Allaah will save him in his entirety from the Fire. And Allaah knows best.

If a person has cut his hair or nails during the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah because he was not planning to offer a sacrifice, then he decides later, during the ten days, to offer a sacrifice, then he must refrain from cutting his hair and nails from the moment he makes this decision.


Some women may delegate their brothers or sons to make the sacrifice on their behalf, then cut their hair during these ten days. This is not correct, because the ruling applies to the one who is offering the sacrifice, whether or not he (or she) delegates someone else to carry out the actual deed. The prohibition does not apply to the person delegated, only to the person who is making the sacrifice, as is indicated in the hadeeth. The person who is sacrificing on behalf of someone else, for whatever reason, does not have to adhere to this prohibition.

This prohibition appears to apply only to the one who is offering the sacrifice, not to his wife and children, unless any of them is offering a sacrifice in his or her own right, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to sacrifice "on behalf of the family of Muhammad," but there are no reports that say he forbade them to cut their hair or nails at that time.

If a person was planning to offer a sacrifice, then he decides to go and perform Hajj, he should not cut his hair or nails if he wants to enter ihraam, because the Sunnah is only to cut hair and nails when necessary. But if he is performing Tamattu’ [whereby he performs ‘Umrah, comes out of ihraam and enters ihraam anew for Hajj], he should trim his hair at the end of his ‘Umrah because this is part of the ritual.

The things that are described above as being prohibited for the person who is planning to offer a sacrifice are reported in the hadeeth quoted above; the person is not forbidden to wear perfume, have marital relations, wear sewn garments, etc.

Concerning the types of worship to be performed during these ten days: one must understand that these days are a great blessing from Allaah to His slave, which is appreciated properly by the actively righteous. It is the Muslim’s duty to appreciate this blessing and make the most of the opportunity, by devoting these ten days to paying more attention to striving hard in worship. Among His blessings to His slaves, Allaah has given us many ways in which to do good and worship Him, so that the Muslim may be constantly active and consistent in his worship of his Lord. 


Among the good deeds which the Muslim should strive to do during the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah are:
Fasting. It is Sunnah to fast on the ninth day of Dhu’l-Hijjah, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) urged us to do good deeds during this time, and fasting is one of the best of deeds. Allaah has chosen fasting for Himself, as is stated in the hadeeth qudsi: "Allaah says: ‘All the deeds of the son of Adam are for him, except for fasting, which is for Me and I am the One Who will reward him for it.’" (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 1805).

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to fast on the ninth of Dhu’l-Hijjah. Hunaydah ibn Khaalid reported from his wife that some of the wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to fast on the ninth of Dhu’l-Hijjah, on the day of ‘Aashooraa’, on three days of each month, and on the first two Mondays and Thursdays of each month." (Reported by al-Nisaa’i, 4/205 and by Abu Dawud; classified by al-Albaani as saheeh in Saheeh Abi Dawud, 2/462). 
Takbeer. It is Sunnah to say Takbeer ("Allaahu akbar"), Tahmeed ("Al-hamdu Lillaah"), Tahleel ("La ilaha ill-Allaah") and Tasbeeh ("Subhaan Allaah") during the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, and to say it loudly in the mosque, the home, the street and every place where it is permitted to remember Allaah and mention His name out loud, as an act of worship and as a proclamation of the greatness of Allaah, may He be exalted.
Men should recite these phrases out loud, and women should recite them quietly.
Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
"That they might witness things that are of benefit to them (i.e., reward of Hajj in the Hereafter, and also some worldly gain from trade, etc.), and mention the name of Allaah on appointed days, over the beast of cattle that He has provided for them (for sacrifice)..." [al-Hajj 22:28]
The majority of scholars agree that the "appointed days" are the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, because of the words of Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father): "The ‘appointed days’ are the first ten days (of Dhu’l-Hijjah)." 

The Takbeer may include the words "Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, la ilaaha ill-Allaah; wa Allaahu akbar wa Lillaahi’l-hamd (Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, there is no god but Allaah; Allaah is Most Great and to Allaah be praise)," as well as other phrases.
Takbeer at this time is an aspect of the Sunnah that has been forgotten, especially during the early part of this period, so much so that one hardly ever hears Takbeer, except from a few people. This Takbeer should be pronounced loudly, in order to revive the Sunnah and as a reminder to the negligent. There is sound evidence that Ibn ‘Umar and Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with them) used to go out in the marketplace during the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, reciting Takbeer, and the people would recite Takbeer when they heard them. The idea behind reminding the people to recite Takbeer is that each one should recite it individually, not in unison, as there is no basis in Sharee’ah for doing this.
Reviving aspects of the Sunnah that have been virtually forgotten is a deed that will bring an immense reward, as is indicated by the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): "Whoever revives an aspect of my Sunnah that is forgotten after my death, he will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him, without it detracting in the least from their reward." (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 7/443; this is a hasan hadeeth because of corroborating asaaneed). 


Performing Hajj and ‘Umrah. One of the best deeds that one can do during these ten days is to perform Hajj to the Sacred House of Allaah. The one whom Allaah helps to go on Hajj to His House and to perform all the rituals properly is included in the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): "An accepted Hajj brings no less a reward than Paradise."
Doing more good deeds in general, because good deeds are beloved by Allaah and will bring a great reward from Him. Whoever is not able to go to Hajj should occupy himself at this blessed time by worshipping Allaah, praying (salaat), reading Qur’an, remembering Allaah, making supplication (du’aa’), giving charity, honouring his parents, upholding the ties of kinship, enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil, and other good deeds and acts of worship.
Sacrifice. One of the good deeds that will bring a person closer to Allaah during these ten days is offering a sacrifice, by choosing a high-quality animal and fattening it, spending money for the sake of Allaah. (more information to follow, in sha Allaah).


Sincere repentance. One of the most important things to do during these ten days is to repent sincerely to Allaah and to give up all kinds of disobedience and sin. Repentance means coming back to Allaah and foregoing all the deeds, open and secret, that He dislikes, out of regret for what has passed, giving it up immediately and being determined never to return to it, but to adhere firmly to the Truth by doing what Allaah loves.
If a Muslim commits a sin, he must hasten to repent at once, without delay, firstly because he does not know when he will die, and secondly because one evil deed leads to another.
Repentance at special times is very important because in most cases people’s thoughts turn towards worship at these times, and they are keen to do good, which leads to them recognizing their sins and feeling regret for the past. Repentance is obligatory at all times, but when the Muslim combines sincere repentance with good deeds during the days of most virtue, this is a sign of success, in sha Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): "But as for him who repented, believed and did righteous deeds, then he will be among those who are successful." [al-Qasas 28:67]

The Muslim should make sure that he does not miss any of these important occasion, because time is passing quickly. Let him prepare himself by doing good deeds which will bring him reward when he is most in need of it, for no matter how much reward he earns, he will find it is less than he needs; the time of departure is at hand, the journey is frightening, delusions are widespread, and the road is long, but Allaah is ever watchful, and to Him will we return and render account. As the Qur’aan says (interpretation of the meaning): 

"So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it,
And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it."
[al-Zalzalah 99:7-8]


There is much to be gained, so make the most of the opportunity afforded by these invaluable and irreplaceable ten days. Hasten to do good works, before death strikes, before one can regret one’s negligence and failure to act, before one is asked to return to a place where no prayers will be answered, before death intervenes between the hopeful one and the things he hopes for, before you are trapped with your deeds in the grave.

O you whose hard heart is as dark as the night, is it not time that your heart was filled with light and became soft? Expose yourself to the gentle breeze of your Lord’s mercy during these ten days, for Allaah will cause this breeze to touch whomever He wills, and whoever is touched by it will be happy on the Day of Judgement. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and all his Family and Companions.

ربّ کعبہ کی قسم میں کامیاب ہوگیا



بِرَبّ الکَعبَہ ”ربّ کعبہ کی قسم میں کامیاب ہوگیا۔“ ابن ملجم کی زہر آلود تلوار سے گھائل ہوگر شہید ہونے والے آخری خلیفہ راشد سیّدنا علی المرتضیٰ رضی اللہ عنہ کی زبان مبارک سے نکلا ہوا یہ جملہ آج بھی تاریخ کا انمٹ نقش ہے،یہ بات وہی کہہ سکتا ہے جو کہے کہ” میں موت سے نہیں ڈرتا چاہے میں موت پر جا پڑوں یا موت مجھ پر آن پڑے“ جو اپنے قاتل کو بھی شربت کا گلاس پیش کرے اور اُس کے ساتھ بھی انصاف کی آرزو رکھے،کوئی مانے یا نہ مانے لیکن صرف اور صرف وہی اپنے آخری وقت میں یہ دعویٰ کرسکتا ہے کہ آج میں کامیاب ہوگیا ۔ ۔ ۔ ۔ ربّ کعبہ کی قسم! راولپنڈی کی انسداد دہشتگردی کی خصوصی عدالت سے سزائے موت سن کرغازی ملک ممتاز حسین قادری بھی اپنے مقصد میں کامیاب ہوگیا،اُس نے عدالت میں بیان دیتے ہوئے کہا تھا کہ ”میری دعا ہے کہ اللہ تعالی اور اُس کے رسول پاک صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  میری قربانی قبول فرمائیں،مجھے کوئی افسو س نہیں ہے،بلکہ میں بہت خوش ہوں کہ اب گستاخان رسول کافی عرصہ اپنے مذموم عزائم سے باز رہیں گے،میری نظر میں سلمان تاثیر گستاخ رسول اور واجب القتل تھا،کیونکہ اُس نے ناموس رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے قانون کو کالا قانون کہا اور گستاخ رسول آسیہ مسیح کی حمایت و معاونت کی،چنانچہ میں نے گورنر سلمان تاثیر کو واجب القتل مانتے ہوئے قتل کا ارادہ کیا اور قتل سے قبل اپنے پرس میں ایک چٹ ڈالی جس پر لکھا تھا کہ”گستاخ رسول کی سزا موت ہے“موت تو ایک دن آنی ہے تو پھر ناموس رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم پر جان قربان ہوجائے توکیا کہنا ۔“ربّ کعبہ کی قسم! کیا کہنے،یقینا وہ کامیاب ہوگیا اور کامیاب کیوں نہ ہو کہ”یہ وہ شہیدان عشق و وفا ہیں جو اپنے ہاتھوں میں حق وصداقت کی مشعلیں اٹھائے،اپنے سینوں میں عشق مصطفی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کی شمعیں جلائے،اپنے دماغوں میں شہادت کی آرزو سمائے اور نظروں میں تصور مدینہ سجائے اپنے لیے موت کا انتخاب خود کرتے ہیں،اسی لیے تو موت اِن سے دہشت زدہ رہتی ہے،کیونکہ اِن کی روحیں مرحلہ دار و رسن کی طالب ہوتی ہیں،کسی شخص کو جتنی محبت زندگی سے ہوتی ہے،اُس سے کئی ہزار گنا انہیں موت سے پیار ہوتا ہے،بلاشبہ دین اسلام کی عزت وآبرو انہی کے دم قدم سے ہے ۔تاریخ گواہ ہے کہ شہیدان ناموس رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  نے گورے اور کالے انگریز کی عدالت میں عزیمت واستقامت کا وہ مظاہرہ کیاکہ ہر مسلمان عش عش کراٹھا اور کفر انگشت بدنداں ہوکر رہ گیا،وکلاءکے دلائل اور بے پناہ دباؤ_ کے باوجود انہوں نے عدالت میں شان و شوکت کے ساتھ اپنے جرم کا باربار اعتراف کیا،عدالتی تاریخ میں اِس کی کوئی مثال نہیں ملتی،پھانسی کی سزا سنتے ہی اپنی مرادوں کے برآنے پر وہ وجد میں آکر خوشی سے رقص کرتے ہیں،اپنی قسمت پر رشک کرتے ہیں،حلیف و حریف حیران رہ جاتے ہیں کہ موت کی سزا کے منتظر اِن جانثاران مصطفی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کا وزن جیل کی کال کوٹھریوں میں کیسے بڑھ جاتا ہے،وہ کیسے خوش وخرم رہتے ہیں،خوشی خوشی تختہ دار کو چومتے ہیں ۔کوئی لہجہ،کوئی طرز بیان،کوئی لغت،کوئی پیرایہ اظہار اتنی تاب نہیں رکھتا کہ وہ ان مجاہدین کی جرات بے مثل کا قصیدہ کہہ سکے ،خراج تحسین پیش کرسکے ان کی جرات و عظمت کو سلام پیش کرسکے،یہی وجہ ہے کہ شہیدان ناموس رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم ہماری آنکھوں میں بستے ہیں ،دلوں میں رہتے ہیں اور سانسوں میں مہکتے ہیں،یہ ہماری کل جمع پونجی ہیں،یہ ہمارا اثاثہ ہیں،ہمارا سرمایہ افتخار ہیں،یہ اِس گم کردہ راہ قوم کے رہنماء اور برگشتہ بخت ملت کے محسن ہیں ۔یہ وہ مجاہدین اسلام ہیں جنھوں نے عظمت رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کی عزت و حرمت کی خاطر اپنے خون کا نذرانہ بیش کرکے اسلام کی عظمت میں چار چار چاند لگائے،اپنے مقدس لہو سے چمن اسلام کی آبیاری کرنے والے یہ وہ خش نصیب ہیں جن پر روح فطرت ناز کرتی ہے،یہ وہ روشن کردار ہیں جن پر ہماری تاریخ غرور کرتی ہے،یہ تاریخ کے ماتھے کا جھومر اوراسلام کے درخشاں ستارے ہیں،یہ وہ مجاہدین اسلام ہیں جو اچھی طرح جانتے ہیں کہ یہی وہ جدوجہد ہے جو زندگی کا حاصل ہے،اسی میں دائمی بقا ءہے اور یہی وہ رہگزر ہستی ہے جو شفاعت مصطفوی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی طرف لے جاتی ہے،یہ وہ مجاہدین اسلام ہیں جن کی رفعت پر پوری ملت اسلامیہ رشک کرتی ہے،فردوس بریں بازو پھیلائے محبوب کائنات صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کے اِن عاشقوں کا استقبال کرتی ہے اور حور و غلمان ایسے ہی قدسیوں کی راہ_ تکتے ہیں، فرشتے جبرئیل امین کی قیادت میں اپنے ہاتھوں میں تاج عظمت لیے انہیں خوش آمدید کہتے ہیں،اللہ کی رضا پر راضی ہوجانے اور محبوب خدا کی آبرو پر فدا ہوجانے والے اِن خوش بختوں کو ربّ تعالیٰ اپنے دیدار سے مشرف فرماتا ہے ۔“اسلام کی چودہ سو سالہ تاریخ کے حاشیے ایسے ہی جانثاروں کے لہو سے گلرنگ ہیں جو اشارتاً اور کنایتاً بھی اپنے پیارے آقا صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کی شان میں معمولی سی توہین و تنقیص اک لمحے کیلئے بھی برداشت نہیں کرتے،اِن کا غیرت وحمیت سے سرشار خون کھول اٹھتا ہے،رگ و پے میں شرارے دوڑنے لگتے ہیں اور وجود غیظ وغضب کی کڑکتی بجلیوں کا روپ دھار کر اُس وقت تک قرار نہیں پاتا جب تک کہ شاتم رسول کے ناپاک اور غلیظ وجود سے دھرتی کو پاک کرکے خود مرحلہ دارورسن طے نہیں کرلیتے،محافظان ناموس رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کا یہ قافلہ شوق شہادت کل بھی جاری تھا اورآج بھی جاری وساری ہے ۔غازی ممتاز حسین قادری بھی اسی قافلہ شوق شہادت کا ایک مسافر ہے،جو مرحلہ دارورسن طے کرکے اپنا نام غازی مرید حسین،غازی عبدالرشید،غازی عبدالقیوم،غازی عبد اللہ،غازی منظور حسین،غازی محمد صدیق،غازی عبدالمنان،غازی میاں محمد،غازی احمد دین،غازی معراج الدین،غازی فاروق احمد،غازی محمد اسحاق،غازی زاہد حسین، غازی عبدالرحمان،غازی حاجی محمد مانک اور غازی عامر چیمہ جیسے مجاہدوں کی فہرست میں لکھوانا چاہتا ہے،جنھوں نے گستاخوں اور مرتدوں کو واصل جہنم کرکے اپنا نام شہیدان ناموس رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی تابناک فہرست میں درج کروایا،غازی ملک ممتاز حسین قادری نے اپنے قول وفعل سے یہ ثابت کردیا ہے کہ پاکستانی مسلمان بہت کچھ برداشت کرسکتے ہیں،لیکن کسی شاتمان رسول اور اُس کے حمایتوں کو کسی طور بھی برداشت نہیں کرسکتے ۔کیونکہ اُن کے نزدیک حضور ختمی المرتبت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کی عزت و ناموس پوری کائنات کا سرمایہ حیات ہے اور اِس قیمتی متاع کا تحفظ ہر مسلمان اپنی جان سے زیادہ ضروری سمجھتا ہے،دنیا بھر کے مسلمان بلا تفریق رنگ و نسل اور زبان و علاقہ اِس معاملہ میں بنیان مرصوص کی طرح ہیں،اُن کے ایمان کا تقاضہ اور دین اسلام کی یہی شرط اوّل ہے،یہی وجہ ہے کہ حضور خاتم النبیین صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کی ذات گرامی کے ساتھ والہانہ عشق کے تقاضے کے حوالے سے وہ ناموس رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کے مسئلے میں انتہائی جذباتی نظر آتے ہیں اورآخر کیوں نہ ہوں،جب قانون نافذ کرنے والے ادارے اور حکومت اپنی ذمہ داری پوری نہ کریں،جمہوریت،آزادی اظہار اور اسلام دشمنوں کی خوشنودی کیلئے گستاخان رسول اور اُن کے سرپرستوں کی طرف داری کریں،انہیں کھلی چھوٹ دے دیں کہ وہ اپنی ناپاک اور گندی زبان سے شان اقدس صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  میں ہذیان بکتے پھریں تو پھر ایک سچا اور پکا مسلمان جو اپنے آقا و مولا صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کے حرمت و ناموس پر مرمٹنے اور اُس کی خاطر دنیا کی ہرچیز قربان کرنے کو اپنی زندگی کا ماحصل سمجھتا ہے،اُس کے پاس اِس کے علاوہ کوئی چارہ نہیں بچتا کہ وہ خود ہی ایسے موذیوں کے ناپاک وجود سے دھرتی کو پاک کرے ۔غازی ممتاز قادری نے بھی یہی کیا،آج عدالت کہتی ہے کہ ”کسی فرد واحد کو اختیار نہیں دیا جا سکتا کہ وہ یہ فیصلہ کرے کہ کون مرتد اور غیر مسلم ہے اور نہ ہی کسی فرد کو یہ اجازت دی جا سکتی ہے کہ وہ لوگوں کو سزا دے کیونکہ اِس سے معاشرے میں انارکی کا راستہ ہموار ہوگا۔“لیکن سوال یہ ہے کہ کیا عدالت،قانون اور ارباب اقتدار نے اپنی ذمہ داریاں پوری کیں،کیا پاکستان جیسے نظریاتی اور اسلامی ملک میں قانون تحفظ ناموس رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  295 سی(جس کے تحت نبی آخرالزماں صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کی شان میں گستاخی پر سزائے موت دی جائے گی ) کے مطابق گستاخان رسول کو قرار واقعی سزا دی،انہیں نشان عبرت بنایا،اگر نہیں تو پھر ظاہر ہے کہ غازی ممتاز قادری جیسے مجاہدوں اور عاشق رسولوں کوہی یہ ذمہ ادا کرنی پڑے گی،یقینا غازی ممتاز قادری نے وہی کیا جو ایک عاشق رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  کو کرنا چاہیے تھا،ربّ کعبہ کی قسم ! کاتب وقت نے اُس کی روشن پیشانی پر لکھ دیا ہے کہ وہ اِس دنیا اور اُس دنیا دونوں میں کامیاب و کامران ہوا ۔اے    یاد گار   عزت ِ  ناموس   مصطفیکیا  خوب  انتخاب  ہے  تیری  حیات  کابدلہ لیا ہے دشمن احمد کا تو نے خوبمنظور  کرچکا  ہے  شہادت  تیری  خدا
