You need THIS BLOG if,

  • Discord in the Muslim ummah troubles you or
  • You are one of the parties in the discord and
  • You want to find its cause and solution.

People following madhahib and the ‘Salafis’ or ‘Ahl-al-Hadeeth’ condemn each other. People with Sufi inclination and Barelvi school of thought are frequently labelled as innovators. The cause of discord is mostly lack of knowledge despite an explosion in mass communication in recent years.

The problem is particularly serious in the Indian subcontinent not least because this region has been an important centre for Islamic scholarship for centuries. While academic disagreement among the scholars is acceptable, among the common people is at least a waste of time and energy.

Not much work toward resolving this discord is found in Urdu which is the dominant language spoken by a large number of Muslims including those who have emigrated from the subcontinent. Dr  Muhammad Saleem Anwar addresses the common reasons for the discord among Muslims in his simple and persuasive speeches delivered to a group of his students.

Dr Anwar is a Respiratory physician living in the UK with his wife and three children. He has studied Islamic sciences from shuyukh and scholars in Pakistan and the UK over the last 22 years. He has been involved with teaching and da’wah for over two decades now, Alhamdulillaah.

    Assalam-o-alaikum Wa Rehmatullahe Wabarakatuhu

    Hope you would be doing well Insha Allah.

    I saw a Hadith in the Sahih Bukhari (#5686) which states as follows:
    Narrated Anas: The climate of Medina did not suit some people, so the Prophet ordered them to follow his shepherd, i.e. his camels, and drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they followed the shepherd that is the camels and drank their milk and urine till their bodies became healthy. Then they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels. When the news reached the Prophet he sent some people in their pursuit. When they were brought, he cut their hands and feet and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron.

    Q: Please enlighten us about the logic behind allowing drinking urine of shepherd, even if it is used as a medicine.

    Jazak Allah Khair
