The Campaign of Protecting the Sacred Words
Our Role in this Regard
Importance of Sacred Words
Through some Questions we try to understand the importance of the words:
Q.1- What is a Word?
Ans. - A single letter of any language by which words are formed and have proper meaning, and then phrases are formed by using the different words. It means that we do not understand the meaning of the word without the combination of the letters.
Q.2 – Are the words of any language respectable?
Ans. – The answer of this question can be found through the following example:
As we take some of the words from English language like, Allah, Rasool, Prophet, Qur’an etc. Such words in any language must be respected in all circumstances.
Q.3 – Can we use this kind of stuff? Which has scribed something sacred on?
Ans. – It is strictly forbidden to use these kind of things and stuffs, when something has been scribed on them, such as written fabrics and clothes (like Jami lawn, Misri lawn, Gul Ahmed and Shabbir lawn, Sana lawn and Sidra lawn), caps, cushion covers, tablecloths, and on different products, like, Younus fan, pak fan, Millat fan, Habib oil and Sufi banaspati etc, because every single letter and word possesses the reverence and value.
Desecration of the Hierogram (holy writings and sacred words) and Our Silence in this regard
It is observed on daily basis that sacred writings and papers are being destroyed or disrespected by our complacency. It results: our society is facing disgrace and humiliation. As we look around us, many of the sacred and holy writings, such as pieces of the Holy Qur’an, Ahadeeth and religious books etc, are placed on unsecured places and similarly piece of news papers, magazines, digests, pamphlets, brochures and core papers etc, are carelessly thrown into the dustbins, trash boxes, and filthy places, even on the piles of garbage and on the roads. Sometimes they are crumpled under the feet which are overwhelmingly desecration of the hierograms (sacred writings). We do not realize that it may be a part of the Holy Qur’an which was revealed upon the Holy Prophetصلی اللہ تعالٰی علیہ وسلم for our guidance or it is the part of the Hadith of our beloved Prophetصلی اللہ تعالٰی علیہ وسلم whose tongue is the key of ‘Kun’ (happen).
Always remember that the verses of the Holy Qur’an, Ahadeeth, sacred names and religious matters are mostly written on such pieces of pages. By placing and throwing these hierograms (sacred writings) onto the unsecured places, we will be strictly sinners and will be accountable in the front of Allah Almighty. If we are still silent by looking that desecration of the hierograms all around us and we will not take any measures to eliminate such blasphemies, we are responsible for this sin and we will be presented as a culprit in the court of Allahجلّ جلالہ, and surely we have no courage to justify our such obnoxious acts in the front of Allah.
Take Part in the Campaign of Protecting Sacred Words
How many of us, consider this issue very seriously and the consequences of such desecration of the hierograms? Who tried to stop disrespecting of the sacred writings? Who took steps to protect and respect the sacred words?
We cannot completely stop this practice from our society and the entire world, alone. Rather we have to work together for the protection of the sacred writings. First of all, we should observe the surroundings all around us, about what we are doing wrong? After that we should consider all those ways and practices that are causing desecration of ‘sacred words’ and what should be done to protect those sacred writings.
Al-Hamdulillahجلّ جلالہ! The Founder of Anjuman Zia-e-Taiba, Haaji Sayyid Allah Rakha Ziaee دامت برکاتہم العالیۃ, has started the campaign for the protection of ‘Sacred Words and writings’. Now this campaign is going on under the supervision of his blessed son, Sayyid Mubashshir Qadiri زِیْدَ مَجْدُہٗ, who is the administrator of Anjuman Zia-e-Taiba, and as per his directives, I gathered my all the courage to establish such an insignificant effort of awaking the society through this article. May Allah accept these tiny efforts in His court, for the sake of the Holy Prophet صلی اللہ تعالٰی علیہ وسلم.
In short, we must strive side by side with this great task of protecting the sacred writings that are extremely being disrespected. At the end I pray that “May Almighty Allah make this Campaign of Anjuman Zia-e-Taiba successful and prosper for the sake of His beloved Prophetجلّ جلالہ و صلی اللہ تعالٰی علیہ وسلم, and help us to become the good citizen of this society”, Ameen!
