My Dear Shamim Saheb,

As-Salaam Alay-Kum

First of all, let’s keep aside for the moment, two words, “Deviation & Deception.If for whatever reason, you and your close associates believe that only the West is indulged in what you repeatedly term as “Deception,” then the need of the hour is to think again about the evildoers in our midst who are equally deviant as well as deceptive too.

Yes, I am of a firm belief that the “Brutal Military Occupation, by the Israeli Defense Forces has managed to trigger chaos and mayhem in the Holy Land. Fault lies on both the sides, Israelis as well as the Arabs, for not being able to conclude a peaceful settlement of their decades long dispute.

You claim that it is Jews and Christians who have turned deaf ears to their Abrahamic faith. You further went on, by saying that they are no where near the truth. That’s one hell of an accusation. Now, my question to you is, “Are Muslims belonging equally to the Abrahamic faith be considered as truthful people?” Let’s say, all because they pray five times a day to Almighty Allah! Would you agree with me, that “Practicing Muslims must Practice Morality, first before anything else.

Forget “Moderation,” as your friend, Kaukab Siddique Saheb vehemently disagrees by declaring that there is no such thing as “moderate” Muslims. According to him, Muslims must act as blood-thirsty warriors and be on a killing spree throughout till the doomsday. That’s one real sick mind that is grossly involved in violating the commandments of the Holy Qur’an.

On reading your message, I noticed that you wrote, “no doubt he (S) is total mercy to mankind in his dealings and behavior with all humans and animals too. But his (S) Mission was to deliver Justice to mankind.” I was dumbfounded to realize that you were not able to even write, “Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).” Even in your book, “Calling Humanity,” in the “Foreword,” section, there is no mention of the name of Prophet of Islam by the respected Muslims as follows:

Dr. Javed Jamil – Executive Chairman – International Center for Applied Islamics.

Mr. Mohammad Rafat – Editor – Zindagi-e-Nau, Delhi.

Dr. Kaukab Siddique – Editor – NewTrend, USA.

Brother Shamsheer A. Baig – Ex-Principal – Crescent Islamic High School – Long Island, New York.

Dr. M. Yunus – Cardiologist, Bonifay, Florida – Ex-Amir (President) of ICNA.

Brother Hussain Khan Sahib – Tokyo, Japan.

Lo and behold! Wasn’t Kaukab Siddique Saheb, a devout Muslim, who charged Mohammed Rafiq Lodhia as, “it’s absurd of you to claim to be the follower of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).” Where was he and all the rest, while they were praising your book? Well, does such a blatant ignorance of not mentioning the name of Prophet of Islam while they were introducing your book tells us something.

Shamim Saheb, the truth of the matter is, most of the time, the focus of the learned Muslims. who relentlessly preach about Islam and the Holy Qur’an have been only on the following words: “Kuffar, Mushrikeen and Kufr. The “Self-Righteous, and the “Self-Justification, attitude speak volumes about their very own superiority complex which made them to continue to cling on to the three oft-repeated words.

Interestingly, you specifically quoted, Surah: Al-Hadeed (Iron)Chapter: 57Verse: 25 as follows:

“We sent our Messengers with evidence and, with them, We sent
down, the Book and the Scales of Justice, so that men might act in
all fairness. We sent down iron with its great inherent strength and
its many benefits for mankind, so that God might know who would
stand up for God, though unseen, and His messengers. God is
powerful and almighty.”

Brief commentary by Maulana Wahiddudin Khan is as follows:

“Two things are required in religion. One is the following of religion and the other is the support of religion. The balance – or the Scales of Justice – is a symbol of the following of religion by its adherents. Just as man measures excess or shortage by means of a balance, similarly, God’s book is also a balance for Truth. People should test their actions against the standard of God’s book and find out how far they are right and how far they are wrong.”

Note, the remark, “People should test their actions against the standard of God’s book and find out how far they are right and how far they are wrong.” In fact, that’s the balanced Islamic view which most of our fellow Muslims will agree upon. Now, given this to be the actual meaning of the “Scales of Justice, I would like to point out your own concern which you wrote in “Calling Humanity,” as follows:

“Man has now reached to a point that he must relocate his position
on earth, readjust his relation with his environment and learn afresh
how to live, act and behave on earth in peace and harmony with his
fellow citizens with justice to all and malice to none. If not, the earth
is fast heading towards some catastrophic end.”

Well, don’t you think that the concern which you have carefully highlighted more or less describes the evil deeds of the “Muslim Terrorists. Perhaps, you and Kaukab Siddique Saheb might want to reflect and ponder over who is on the wrong side of the history? We all know that the Western world has its own faults, but as a genuine Muslim who authored a book, “Calling Humanity,” then it is truly shocking to know that the learned Islamic scholars are constantly engaged in covering up the grave sins of those evildoers who are busy committing heinous crime against humanity in the name of Islam.

Finally, may I humbly ask, “Are you and your associates bold enough to stand up for Almighty Allah commandments by calling out to the so-called ‘Mujahedeens, to put a permanent stop to their barbaric acts?” Never mind, if this message is coming from a deviated Muslim or a moderate Muslim. Simply, consider that it as coming from a concerned human being. Fair enough, Shamim A. Siddiqi Saheb!

Thanks again for understanding, I remain

Very respectfully yours,

Mohammed Rafiq Lodhia

My Dear Br Rafiq, Salaam Allah Ap ku Khush Rakhey

Please have patience. Try to understand what I am writing:

Please be clear that Islam is a Deen and not a “religion” as Judaism and Christianity have become. Islam has accepted and recommended Islam as a Deen – a System of life that covers the entire spectrum of human life both in individual and collective spheres but Muslims are taking it as a total of some individual Ebadah, some rituals and some days and a myth that is created by centuries old customs and influence of Sufism.

Secondly, you must please understand that no doubt he (S) is total mercy to mankind in his dealings and behavior with all humans and animals too. But his (S) Mission was to deliver Justice to mankind, the suffering humanity as Qur’an gives due emphasizes in Verse # 25 of Surah # 57: Al-Hadeed.

That is why he (S) for the whole of his (S) struggled for the Iqamah of Allah’s Deen in order to deliver the justice to mankind. History proves it that wherever Islam was established in the body politic, all injustices were removed which was also accepted even by Jews and Christians of the time. And the world will again get it back ONLY when Islam becomes a reality which the West does not want to understand due to its centuries old prejudices against Islam. SO THE INJUSTICES ARE CONTINUING IN EVERY PHASE OF HUMAN LIFE EVERYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD due to incorrect man-made systems and all have failed and are likely to fail soon.

If this concept of Deen is missing in any Muslim’s mind, belief and approach, he/she is DEVIATED form Allah’s Deen, howsoever, he/she is educated and may be called “Allamah”.

It has nothing to do with the so-called “Jihadists” that are in effect the creation of Western ZULM (oppression) and Fasad [transgression] of Kuffar and Mushrikeen in the Muslim world. If they stop it, these “false” Movements will automatically come to an end immediately. West must understand, if it is sincere in PEACE.

The problem lies with our Muslim brothers who take as correct what West says whereas their system of life is simply a deception in the words of the Qur’an Verse # 196 of Surah Al-Imran.

So Br Rafiq please think over this prevailing situation very calmly with patience that what we are saying is correct in terms of the Qur’an and you don’t belief us but what the devil is saying you have faith in it.

Currently, the Muslim Ummah is lost in the doldrums of ‘deviation, uncertainty, inaction, lethargies and it is “shopping” on Islam.

I have no complain against West. They are doing as per their conception and to protect their myths and mythologies whereas they have unfortunately turned a deaf ear to their Abrahamic faith for centuries together. So they are nowhere near truth. They have lost their tail and want us to become “tailless”. What a clumsy situation it is. The truth has become untruth and the falsehood has become the currency of the day and you all are happy, unfortunately and unconsciously are becoming the integral part of Western deceptions.

Request you all please share this discussion with whom you can. It will be a Ssdqaua- e-Jariyah for the Ummah.

Shukrun wa Jazakallah

Dear Shamim Saheb,

As-Salaam Alay-Kum

First of all, may I bluntly ask you, “Who are the deviated Muslims?” From yours as well as Kaukab Siddique Saheb’s messages, it seems like those Muslims who are not “warriors” or for the lack of better word, “Mujahideen,” must be categorized as deviated Muslims. It is truly amazing that he went out to state that, “It’s absurd of you to claim to be a follower of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, He was a mujahid and here you are attacking mujahideen.”

How on earth can a person whom you confidently call an Islamic scholar have not yet been able to grasp a single powerful fact that the Prophet of Islam, was sent to the world as “Mercy to Mankind”? You wrote a book, “Calling To Humanity,” whereas, it seems like, he is all-out to promote, “Calling to Barbarism.” Who is in fact deviated from the core message of our Holy Qur’an?

The height of arrogance was clearly visible when you wrote to me saying that, “Why you degrade yourself to the lowest strata?” How did respecting a fellow human be considered as degrading oneself? Something is not right with the thinking process. “Think before you Ink, is what your associate reminded me of. It is very much apparent that neither of you were thinking at all.

Furthermore, how can an Islamic scholar be that ignorant to claim that there is no such thing as “Moderation,” in Islam. That’s just unbelievable, Shamim Saheb.

Finally, after all the back and forth email exchanges, I can pretty much conclude that A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF THE STEALTH JIHADIST can be confirmed by reading none other than Kaukab Siddique Saheb’s responses. So help us, Almighty Allah. A “warrior” Muslim is residing in America, instead of being at the frontlines of the battlefield. Why not ask yourself, “Who is a downright coward?” The man who like Bin Laden is afraid to lead the battle, but would happily send the young Muslims to get killed. I say, it’s the height of hypocrisy.

Very truly yours,

Mohammed Rafiq Lodhia

Mohtram Rafiq Bhai, Salaam

This is not the proper way to learn Islam as an arrogant student. If one is interested in learning Islam either of us he or she should be an humble student as the elders of Islamic history promoted the knowledge of Islam.

Alhamdulillah, I too learned Islam in my humble way from our learned teachers through the same process sitting on ground before them while not raising our heads before them. When Iman Malik (RA) was giving Dars-e-Hathis in Masjid-e-Nabawi of Rasulullah (S), all students even Imam-e-Waqt used to sit before him head down in pin drop silence and Iman Shafeii (RA) was one of them. This is the respectability of Islamic learning.

Mohtram Kaukab Bhai is a scholar of Islam and therefore must be respected properly. Only then one can reach to the depth of Islamic Understanding. He deals with the deviated Muslims in quite appropriate way that they deserve.

Shukrun wa Jazakallah

Dear Shamim Siddiqi Saheb,

As-Salaam Alay-Kum

Tell me something! When the world portray Muslims as the worst evildoers, what should a sane and educated Muslim do?

You are being copied on such emails, and you do read the comments coming forth. What made you think that I was prostrating and before whom?

Can you be kind to elaborate the meaning of “Thou Exalted In Character”? How on earth Muslims can retain dignity when confronted with all the accusations of not being able to punish those who do not adhere to the moral teachings of the Holy Qur’an? You being an elderly wise American Muslim should know that better, Siddiqi Saheb.

You should never downplay any “Good Word, coming forth from a fellow human. Though, there are few bigots out yonder who will never pay any respect to the Muslims. By sending such emails, all you are trying to relay is that the Muslims are indeed arrogant and superior than their fellow humans. That’s absolutely wrong thing to do.

I am truly disappointed that such false sense of pride displayed by you is something that I am totally incapable to understand. After all, there is a big difference between “Sajda,” which is reserved for God, whereas, “Respect” which should be extended to Humans from all walks of life regardless of their faiths.

Hope I made my explanation clear to you and to everyone on this email list.

Thanks again for understanding, I remain

My Dear Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji,

It always gives me an immense pleasure whenever I see the images of the respected world leaders with their beloved mothers.

Happy Birthday, Narendra Modi Ji. You turned 64 and I am 63. We both belong to the same generation, when we listened to the magnificent Indian songs when we were young. At this very moment of being delighted to see the cover page of your Facebook with your elderly mother, it reminded me of an old song from the movie “Daadi Maa” as follows:

insan to kya devata bhi aanchal me pale tere
hai swarg isi duniya me kadamo ke tale tere
mamata hi lutaye jiske nayan, ho
mamata hi lutaye jiske nayan
aisi koi murat kya hogi
ae ma, ae ma teri surat se alag
bhagavan ki surat kya hogi, kya hogi
us ko nahi dekha humne kabhi

Heaven lies at the feet of your mother” is the saying of the Prophet of Islam. As a Muslim, I express my genuine appreciation to you for setting a perfect example for all “Desh Premees” to respect their “Mothers. Hats off to you, Modi Ji.

Having said this, I want to bring to the kind attention of all the readers that the lyrics of the song were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri. The two legendary singers were Mahendra Kapoor and Manna Dey. Music director was none other than Roshanlal Nagrath.

May Bhagwaan bless you, our outstanding poets, singers and musicians and all the honorable “Mothers of India.


Jai Hind, Jai Modi.

Affectionately yours,

Mohammed Rafiq Lodhia
