We the Undersigned, strongly oppose and reject 'The Amman Message"

La tajidu qawman yuminoona biAllahi waalyawmi alakhiri yuwaddoona man hadda Allaha warasoolahu walaw kanoo abaahum aw abnaahum aw ikhwanahum aw AAasheeratahum olaika kataba fee quloobihimu aleemana waayyadahum biroohin minhu wayudkhiluhum jannatin tajree min tahtiha alanharu khalideena feeha radiya Allahu AAanhum waradoo AAanhu olaika hizbu Allahi ala inna hizba Allahi humu almuflihoona [Surahe Al-Mujadila(58) Ayat 22]
You will not find a people who believe in Allah and the last Day taking as their friends those who opposed Allah and His Messenger, even though they be their fathers or their sons or their brotheren or their kinsmen. These are they in whose hearts Allah has inscribed faith and helped them with a spirit from Himself, and will make them enter gardens beneath which flow streams, abiding therein, Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Allah. This is Allah's party. Do you hear'? it is Allah's party that is successful. [Kanzul Imaan Translation]


Our Murshid, Sheikh Sayyid Abdul Qaadir Jilani RadiyAllahu Ta'aala Anhu has said :
Three things inevitably demands the attention of every Believer under all circumstances :
A Commandment to be obeyed
A Prohibition to be respected
A Divine Decree to be accepted with good grace

Regarding people who make Bid'ah-e-Sayyi'ah(evil innovations) in beliefs and practices, Our beloved Sheikh Sayyid Abdul Qaadir Jilani (RadiyAllahu Ta'aala Anhu) has said in his "Gunya" :
"It is also essential for a sensible Mu'min not to have any relations with the people of Bid'ah. And he should not bear any love or nearness with them. Neither should he do Salaam to him. Our Imaam Hazrat Ahmed bin Hambal RadAllahu Anh said that it is also necessary that he should not be in his company. Neither go to him. Nor greet him in Eid and such happy occasions."

Our beloved Imaam Ahle Sunnat, Hazrat Ahmed Raza Khan Rahmatullah Alaih says :
"He who recites the Qur'aan incorrectly by changing it's meaning,
or does not perform proper wudhu or ghusl,
or refutes a basic principle of Deen,
Sects such as Wahaabi, Shia, Ghair Muqallid, Qadiani - behind these people, one's Namaaz is Baatil" [Ahkaam-e-Shariah, Vol 1, Page 128, Ma'asala 52]

If Salaah is the Me'raaj of a Mu'min which leads us towards Allah Azzawajal, how can unity with these corrupt beliefs, individuals and "The Amman Message" take us towards Allah Subhaanahu wata'aala?

Imaan is not merely about Believing in Allah and His Rasool, it's also about how one believes in Allah and His Rasool. To be merely called 'Muslim' is not sufficient in this Dunya, nor is it in the Aakhirat.
The first step of the Aakhirat is the Qabr, where we would be asked three questions:
1. Ma Rabbuka? (who is your Lord?)
The Mu'min would reply: "Rabbi Allah" (My Lord is Allah)
2. Ma Deenuka? (what is your Deen?)
Deen by Allah is only Islam, and thus the Mu'min would reply: "Deeni AlIslam" (My Deen is Islam)

Now ponder over this, if a person comes and says to you: "I Believe in Allah and I follow Islam (i.e. I am Muslim)", is there any need for a further question? If a person makes such a declaration would one call him/her a Kaafir?

3. Despite this there is a third question, (when the Beloved Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wasallam would present himself in the Qabr) "Ma Kunta taqooli fi Haqqi haadi Rajul?" (What did you used to say about this personality)

The interesting part of this final question, is that the question is not about the recognition of the Rasool of Allah, but more about HOW the person believed in the Rasool of Allah.
So if the person use to believe that "he is just like us" or "He doesn't know what is behind the wall" or "His knowledge is equivalent to Tom, Dick and Harry (Zaid aw Amar)" then even though they got the first 2 questions correct, they are stuck and fail to qualify as a Muslim on this last question. Whereas the Mu'min would answer what he believed... so if you use to say "Mustafa Jaane Rahmat peh Laako Salaam" or "He is my Master" or "I love him more than any other creation" then indeed, they would pass this question with ease, and the Angels would say to them: "We knew you would give this answer" and instruct him/her: "Namka Uroosatin" (Sleep like a Bride) who would have rest and peace until meeting his/her beloved Allah.

Allahu waRasoolahu a'alamu.

It is clear that Muslims (Pakka Sacha Tantanatan Sunni Sahihul Aqeedah) should not support or endorse this "Amman Message".
Infact, we should uphold our Maslak-e-'Ala Hazrat and strongly oppose such evil.

I humbly request all those responsible individuals of your organisation, please inform your local Sunni Ulema and Mashaa'ikh about this Amman Message, and let us try to unite in opposing this Deviation from The Qur'aan and Sunnah of Allah's Beloved Sallalahu alaihi wasallam.

We remain united on Haqq only! Never on Baatil!

Maslak-e-'Ala Hazrat Zindabaad!

Please also publicly voice your opinion about this Amman Message, the world needs to know that we strongly oppose it.

Attached are the three points of the Amman Message:

THE THREE POINTS OF THE AMMAN MESSAGE
(in English, as modified and ratified by the International Islamic Fiqh Academy, June 2006)
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
May peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Muhammad and his pure and noble family
(1) Whosoever is an adherent to one of the four Sunni schools (Mathahib) of Islamic jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i and Hanbali), the two Shii schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Ja`fari and Zaydi), the Ibadi school of Islamic jurisprudence and the Thahiri school of Islamic jurisprudence, is a Muslim. Declaring that person an apostate is impossible and impermissible. Verily his (or her) blood, honour, and property are inviolable. Moreover, in accordance with the Shaykh Al-Azhars fatwa, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare whosoever subscribes to the Ash`ari creed or whoever practices real Tasawwuf (Sufism) an apostate. Likewise, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare whosoever subscribes to true Salafi thought an apostate.
Equally, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare as apostates any other group of Muslims who believes in God, Glorified and Exalted be He, and His Messenger (may peace and blessings be upon him), the pillars of faith (Iman), and the five pillars of Islam, and does not deny any necessarily self-evident tenet of religion.

(2) There exists more in common between the various schools of Islamic jurisprudence than there is difference between them. The adherents to the eight schools of Islamic jurisprudence are in agreement as regards the basic principles of Islam. All believe in Allah (God), Glorified and Exalted be He, the One and the Unique; that the Noble Quran is the Revealed Word of God preserved and protected by God, Exalted be He, from any change or aberration; and that our master Muhammad, may blessings and peace be upon him, is a Prophet and Messenger unto all mankind. All are in agreement about the five pillars of Islam: the two testaments of faith (shahadatayn); the ritual prayer (salat); almsgiving (zakat); fasting the month of Ramadan (sawm), and the Hajj to the sacred house of God (in Mecca). All are also in agreement about the foundations of belief: belief in Allah (God), His angels, His scriptures, His messengers, and in the Day of Judgment, in Divine Providence in good and in evil. Disagreements between the ulama (scholars) of the eight schools of Islamic jurisprudence are only with respect to the ancillary branches of religion (furu`) and some fundamentals (usul) [of the religion of Islam]. Disagreement with respect to the ancillary branches of religion (furu`) is a mercy. Long ago it was said that variance in opinion among the ulama (scholars) is a mercy.

(3) Acknowledgement of the schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Mathahib) within Islam means adhering to a fundamental methodology in the issuance of fatwas: no one may issue a fatwa without the requisite qualifications of knowledge. No one may issue a fatwa without adhering to the methodology of the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. No one may claim to do unlimited Ijtihad and create a new opinion or issue unacceptable fatwas that take Muslims out of the principles and certainties of the Shari`ah and what has been established in respect of its schools of jurisprudence.
