difference between "deen" and "mazhab"


Presentation Description

Slide 2: 

Most of the people do not try to understand the difference between Deen and Mazhab and even unconsciously presume DEEN-E-ISLAM to be 'MAZHAB' although there is a difference like that of the day and night. Take it as a misfortune that the religious monopolist like Mullah (one who knows only religious dogma), Peer (spiritual guide), Gaddi Nasheen (Successor of a saint) and Mufti (Islamic Jurist) never make an endeavor to clarify the difference, since they are apprehensive of a slump in their shop-keeping.

Slide 3: 

Mazhab, apart from being a non-Islamic word, proves to be an obstruction in the unification of Ummah too. Present Mazaahib are a picture like proof of the same. Don't forget that the entire Ummah was one and its Deen too was one, only when there existed no Mazaahib. But the Ummah got disintegrated since the reverents got dead drunk of the excessive exaggeration and developed a relish for the wine of Taqleed (an uncritical and unqualified acceptance and emulation of traditional orthodoxy or an authoritarian code of a particular teacher of a Mazhab). Inspite of innumerable efforts now it isn't coming under control. Therefore, there is no alternative except renouncing the Mazaahib and bidding a farewell to sects. It will become practical only when the difference between. DEEN and MAZHAB is clarified but prior to this a deliberation over the meaning and interpretation of both the words should be opted for only to facilitate a better understanding of the subsequent matter.

Meaning and Interpretation of Deen and Mazhab : 

Meaning and Interpretation of Deen and Mazhab

Mazhab (Religious School of Thought) Means: : 

Mazhab (Religious School of Thought) Means: Zahab = go, pass by, walk Mazhab = method, belief or faith, manner. As per the Arabic grammar, Mazhab is an ‘Adverbial Noun’ that which shows the place or time of an action. { Tas'heel-ul-Adab, Fi lisaan-ul-Arab, Juzz Saani} Therefore, according to this the meaning of 'Mazhab' happens to be 'The place of going or the time of going.’ The following Prophetic tradition also supports the sense of the 'Place of going'. The Holy Prophet (pbuh) used to go far off when he had to go to the place of going (i.e. to answer the call of nature). { Abu Dawood, Book of Taharah} But the word 'Mazhab' is generally spoken and known as the ways and methods of the sects such as mentioned in the lexicons. There are so called Five popular 'Mazahib.' (1) Hanafi (2) Shafayee (3) Hambali (4) Maliki (5) Ahle Hadees.

Slide 7: 

It was exigently just that the believers of Islam should have accepted and introduced Deen i.e., Deen-e-Islam as the Islamic law and way of life but that was not done. On the contrary, a self invented word, Mazhab was opted for against 'Deen', the proof of which is there in neither the Holy Qur’an nor any Prophetic tradition. On the other hand, the sense in which the word has been used in the Prophetic tradition if that is to be used for indicating religion, that would be an insult to Islam. Even now the word Mazhab has become so common that Islam is being identified as 'Mazhab' instead of Deen and this all is the work of religious monopolists. Anyhow, go through the difference between 'Deen' and 'Mazhab' so that a discrimination between right and wrong can be reached.

Slide 8: 

Deen Deen is an Islaamic word and it is proved by the Holy Qur’an and Ahadees. The Deen in the sight of Allah (SWT) is only Islaam "The Deen before Allah (accepted by Allah) is Islam" (Aal-Imran 3:19) Deen has been approved of and favoured by Allah "Today, I have completed your Deen, and have completed my bliss upon you and accepted for you Islam as a Deen." (Al-Mai’da 5:3) Deen is complete "Today, I have completed your Deen..” (Al-Mai’da 5:3) Deen is Pure “Unquestionably, for Allah is the pure religion. (Az-Zumar 39:3) Mazhab Mazhab is a non-Islaamic word and it has not been used in the Holy Qur’an or Ahadees in this context. There is no such proof in Mazhab rather Mazhab is Sectarianism. There is no scope or rather an instance of Sectarianism or Mazaahib in Islaam. Hence, Mazaahib is a Self-made thing and Allah (SWT) never likes Self-made things in Islaam. Mazaahib are incomplete. There are self-made statements and proclamations in Mazaahib and this would continue till the time of Qayamah if they don’t repent and get back Islaam. Hence, the whole way of life in Mazaahib is self-made law which is against Islaam. Mazaahib are not pure; indeed they are adulterated and have the combination of Statements, Proclamations, advices and suggestions which are self-made and are contradictory to Islaamic concepts.

Slide 9: 

Deen Deen has been chosen by Allah (SWT). “Indeed Allah has chosen for you this Deen…” (Al-Baqara 2:132) Only Deen will be accepted And whoever desires other than Islam as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. (Aal-Imran 3:85) The purpose of Jihad in Deen is to establish the Deen of Allah completely. “And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah. And if they cease - then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do.” (Al-Anfal 8:39) Mazhab Mazaahib are Self-made and are made with human-intervention. Since Mazaahib are self-made and against Islaam undoubtedly it will not be accepted. The purpose of Jihad (which cannot be called as Jihad, anyways) in Mazaahib is to continue the sect based on some Personality, Individuality, Community or Region.

Slide 10: 

Deen A messenger or Prophet of Allah will only bring Deen with him. "It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although they who associate others with Allah dislike it.” (At-Tawba 9:33) Fiqh (deep understanding) in Deen is a favour “To whomever Allah Wants to favour HE grants him Fiqh in Deen (full understanding of Deen-e-Islaam).” (Sahih Buqari & Sahih Muslim) Mazhab There is no relation of Mazaahib with the Messengers or rather these sects are associated with some other Personalities. The Present day situation is an illustration of the same. “Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects - you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to Allah; then He will inform them about what they used to do.” (Al-‘An’am 6:159) Muqallid (the one who is committed to uncritical and unqualified acceptance and emulation of traditional orthodoxy or an authoritarian code of a particular religious teacher) Can not become an Islamic jurisprudent. Therefore, shall remain a depriver. For example, the word or the dictum of a Mujtahid (A jurist entitled to independent opinion) is proof enough for a Muqallid. Muqallid says 'to me, this is the directive since the opinion of Abu Haneefa (Rh) has made me reach it and his opinion that makes me reach the directive is the fact of the matter.'

Slide 11: 

In short, Mazhab is an un-Islamic law and self created means of establishing relation with Allah. Mazhab has self-invented methods of prayers, apart from an intrusion and impulse of one's baser self whereas Deen is known as code of living in accordance with that of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) and striving to achieve the will of Allah. That is why Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen has no relation with any Mazhab, school of thought or sect. On the contrary, it is fed up with Mazahib since they are self invented and against Deen-e-Islam. They are the means of dissension in Islam. On the contrary, Islam is universal and collectivity preferer. It abhors dissension absolutely. Therefore, the claimants of Islam should keep off such activities rather hate things severely which take the perfect, well grounded and moderate Islam into their striking range as Islam alone guarantees our salvation and survival.

Slide 12: 

That is the reason Jamaat-Ul-Muslimeen has no connection/associated of whatsoever with any of the Mazaahib, Maslak or Firqq (sects). Jamaat-Ul-Musleem condemns all these sectarianism as these self-made doctrines which are against Islaam are the foundational cause for all the differences and divisions in Islaam. On the contrary, Islaam is the name of unification and Universal Brotherhood.

Slide 13: 

Finally we request our readers to unite along with us on one nucleus; end all sects; and since a believer has been named a Muslim and has been commanded to associate with Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen, we invite you to come to Jamaat and check its activity and involvement and then decide. Dear readers, Please! Do not follow any religion but ISLAM which gives you the clear command to obey none but Allah and His prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam). Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen is neither a sect nor it has any connection to any of the sects. It offers pure Deen (religion) "Islam" - the religion of Allah and His prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam). So come and join Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen and assist the cause of Islam.

Slide 14: 

The gist of the above invitation is that Allah alone is to be worshipped and no one else beside Him enjoys this right. It is a fact that sectarianism originated from abandoning the teachings of Allah and His prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam) and following others instead. When the respect and love for a person exceeds the limits i.e. when his words and deeds are considered to be the truth, rather the criterion of judging truth, then this is equal to worship. Religious demarcations and decisions are the job of Allah and none is allowed to intervene or make any change in the boundary of religion. We invite all the sects of this Ummah towards this doctrine of faith. All of Allah's religious ordinances and instructions are complete and preserved in the Quran and Sunnah, which are common among nearly all sects.
