اہل تصوف کی تضلیل – کیا جاوید احمد غامدی معافی مانگیں گے؟

ڈاکٹر عمیر محمود صدیقی

غامدی صاحب نے اپنی کتاب برھان میں ایک مضمون  ‘اسلام اور تصوف’ کے نام سے بھی شائع کیا ہے ۔یہ مضمون ۱۹۹۳ء میں لکھا گیا جس میں تصوف کو اسلام کے مقابل ایک متوازی دین قرار دیتے ہوئے تمام اہل تصوف کی تضلیل کی گئی ۔غامدی صاحب نے اس مضمون میں تصوف کو عالمگیر ضلالت قرار دیا اور حضرت شیخ عبد القادر جیلانی ، حضرت امام غزالی ، حضرت شیخ اکبر محی الدین ابن عربی ، حضرت مجدد الف ثانی اور مولانا روم و شاہ ولی اللہ محدث دہلوی رحمہم اللہ جیسی عظیم شخصیات کی طرف انکار نبوت و ختم نبوت کی مذموم نسبت کی ۔ ۱۹۹۳ء کے بعد سے پہلی مرتبہ غامدی صاحب کے کسی متعلق پر ان کی یہ غلطی واضح ہوئی ہے کہ انہوں نے ان بزرگوں کے لیے تخفیف کے…

Stray Reflections on Iqbal – 8

By Dr Maqsood Jafri

Iqbal’s concept of Egohood

Iqbal day is the day of meditation, estimation, and rededication to the principles, ideals and values preached by Iqbal. This day furnishes an opportunity to all who have faith in his enthusiastic and fervent message. The poetry of Iqbal is like a fathomless ocean of erudition and his devotees are like spectators standing on the seashore surprisingly staring at the tempestuous swirls of his scholasticism and tumultuous abysses of his reflection. His poetical ingenuity and philosophical maturity are splendid.

The philosopher-poet Dr Muhammad Iqbal was a man of extraordinary mental faculties and spiritual zeal buttressed with Western and Eastern knowledge of history, theology, literature, science and politics. He was not an idle-dreamer. He was in fact a philosopher of traditional as well as modern thought, who had made a careful study of human affairs in the…

Stray Reflections on Iqbal – 7

By Dr Maqsood Jafri

Social and Political Impact of Egohood

It was in the 18th Century when the term Ego or Self came into vogue. Previously, philosophers had been dealing with the concept of ‘Soul’ and had no understanding of the term Ego. In Muslim philosophy the term Ego or ‘Khudi’ had been a detrimental and a derogatory term for many centuries. Muslim Sufis, clerics and poets had been constantly preaching the suppression and negation of Ego as it was taken in the sense of arrogance and haughtiness. Even the spiritual mentor of Dr Iqbal known as Moulana Rumi had very vehemently negated the Khudi of man, considering it a negative and nefarious term based on vanity. A great Persian poet Iraqi says:

“First it is, and do you know what is its last?; Free yourself from the grip of Self. ”…

Stray Reflections on Iqbal – 6

The core of the concept of Egohood by Dr Iqbal gives us the message of positive thinking. The man who accomplishes and furnishes his Ego can never involve in negative thinking and negative activities.

It is the great irony of fate that the Man of our era is suffering from an inferiority complex. He has no confidence in his own personality. The scientific progress and industrial development has made man like a minute clog of the machine. Individuality of man has been entirely obliterated and crushed. People have become morally unscrupulous, biologically unfit, psychologically depressed and spiritually null and void. Norman Vincent Peale has nicely described in his book titled “The Power of Positive Thinking” about this state of affairs likewise:

“Lack of Self-confidence apparently is one of the great problems besetting people today. In a university a survey was…

Stray Reflections on Iqbal – 5

By Dr Maqsood Jafri

The core and crux of all divine religions is the purification of soul and development of human personality. The poetry of Iqbal swings around the pivot of recognition and awareness of Ego. The Holy Quran values the Moral Man. In Surah Al-Shams (The Sun) it is said:

“By the soul and Him that moulded it and inspired it with (knowledge of) sin and piety; blessed shall be the man who has kept it pure and ruined will be he that has corrupted it.”

French philosopher Henry Bergson also called Moral Man as an Ideal Man. His social philosophy preached the importance of the didactic norms. Morality is a vast term. It covers all aspects of the behaviour and conduct of a person. It also means a man of positive and noble behaviour.

Muslim thinker Abdul Karim Al-Jaily called such a…
