Salaam in Mawlid u’n Nabi of Imam Barzanji

An Appreciation by Siddiq Osman Noormuhammad

The mawlid eulogy by Imam as-Sayyid Ja’far ibn Hasan ibn ‘Abdal Karim al-Barzanji (1690-1766 C.E) Rahmatullahi ‘alaih is popular Muslim poetry in praise of the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, universally recited to celebrate his birth (mawlid) on twelfth Rabi’ u’l Awwal. It is a poetic biography of the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam with his birth as its main theme. And when a Muslim says ‘mawlid‘, every other Muslim knows it is the birth of the sweet beloved Prophet Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam that is being referred to. This mawlid eulogy, just like dozens of others, is based on the Holy Qur’an Kareem, Hadith Shareef and books of seerah (history). It is in two parts. The first is Mawlid Barzanji Nathr, a 19 fasl (chapter) history…

Eventually the ‘love’ Fir’aun had for Musa (AS) died down… Musa’s friend in Fir’aun’s army eventually proclaims his Islam in front of Fir’aun, mentioned in surah Ghafir as in the following recitation by Sheikh Salman al-Utaybi:

The man tells the people that he sees similarities between Musa (AS) and Prophet Yusuf (AS), thereby implying his feeling that Musa (AS) was a Messenger from Allah. The people at the time of Fir’aun had studied about Yusuf (AS) as part of their ‘school curriculum’ of the time…

This is where Nouman Ali Khan stopped talking about the story and concluded with a remarkable comparative study he had undertaken between this surah, surah Qasas, and surah Yusuf, and this is where this short series of articles will conclude, inshaAllah…

My Poetry on Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam.

The same motive for anti-US ‘terrorism’ is cited over and over: Ignoring the role played by US actions is dangerously self-flattering and self-delusional

The article linked above was written in response to the Boston bombing.

Article gives a HUGE insight as to what may be the actual reason behind anti-US terrorist bombings. What is the real reason motivating these bombers to attack innocent Americans?

DEFINITELY, not in the name of Islam

rather it seems the problem is rooted in NATIONALISM (pride in one’s own country)

and both sides are to be held ACCOUNTABLE to blame

“But pretending that this is all due to some primitive and irrational religious response and not our own actions is dangerously self-flattering and self-delusional

“It’s the inevitable outcome of these choices, and that’s not because Islam is some sort of bizarre or intrinsically violent and uncivilized religion. It’s because no group in the world is willing to sit by and be targeted with violence and aggression of that sort without also engaging in it”

I would recommend reading the last couple of paragraphs of the article to get a better idea of what’s really going on in the world…

till next time,
