Reason #85: (Position of the Mazoon – Post 7) – Africa – Error of Judgement
It is as plain as day as to what Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA said and clear that the events of Africa did actually happen. He said, (exact words)
“ek waqt Bhai Qutbuddin ney bhi em
(1)khayal thai gayu, aney em
(2) yaqeen thai gayoo, aney
(3)zehn ma lai leedu key aa saazish….”
A number of salient points are evident. In whatever transpired in Africa, Khuzaima was misled. He was gullible and impressionable in being led astray by those who were less than trustworthy. In fact these people were referred to as ‘munafeqeen’ by Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA. He lacked good judgement and believed – with wholehearted conviction (yaqeen) – that those who were innocent and wrongly accused were guilty. He lacked the ability to discern between right and wrong, and instead gave into his own emotions.
Would a Mazoon of the stature and character claimed by the website, have allowed himself to be duped and hoaxed into believing munafeqeen? Would a Mazoon even correspond and communicate and listen to a munafiq? Where are there signs of the attributed ‘wisdom, siyasat, vision, fairness, integrity and balance’ in this bayaan? The words of Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA also beget the question:
How many other instances have there been where Khuzaima has given into temptation, lacked clarity of judgement, been convinced of his own assumptions and communicated with munafeqeen and consequently been mislead?
The website has furiously spun a tale of solemn virtue for a man whose word was not accepted by Dai al-Zaman. Not only did Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA not accept his version of events, but actually accepted the word of a humble and loyal Mumin. He says,
“I believed Husain bhai and I unequivocally declared that he and his entire family are innocent of these accusations. I accepted his ziyafat, honoured him with a shawl and prayed for his wellbeing. After having done all this and after all that has transpired till now, if someone is still in doubt as to whether Husain bhai may have lied to me and was subsequently pardoned [even though he lied], then it is tantamount to having doubt in my judgement and the appropriateness of my actions. This stands true regardless of the rank and station of the person harbouring that doubt.”
There are innumerable accounts of Khuzaima’s shortcomings, mistakes, instances of disrespect for the Dai and moments of questioning his authority. However, rather than list these – which again the Khuzaima camp will dismiss as fabrications – I have merely highlighted what is crystal clear in the bayaan mubarak of Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA. If they wish to refute the above, then doing so is the refutation of the words of Haqq na Saheb, and they are contesting the very institution of Wali ullah. Let them do so at their own peril.
