In Response To: NAMAZ: ONCE AND FOR ALL (Dr. Shabbir)

Very few people know that the truly great thinkers of Islam and true Mu'mins never fell for the useless ritual of NAMAZ.

A few of those great names:

Imam Raghib Isphahani [Try to find for yourself as to who, when and why changed WA AQIMUSSALAAT to Pray Namaz. - Intro to Mufridaat]

Syed Jamaluddin Afghani [Some Muslims waste one third of their lives on NAMAZ contrived by men. - Akhbar Khilafat, Istanbul]

Allama Aslam Jairajpuri [The custom of keeping beards has added to sheep following sheep. It has thrown many Muslims into the senseless ritual of NAMAZ. - Tareekh-e-Millat]

Sir Syed Ahmad Khan [You people go to NAMAZ. Let me do my work. - "Afkaar-e-Sir Syed]

Allama Iqbal [Nazar Aa Jaata Hai Masjid Mein Mein Bhi Tu Eid Kay Din]

Allama G.A. Perwez [Ask his close companions. He was only forced by his environment to say that Muslims may continue with the present format of NAMAZ until the true Islamic Authority rules a country and comes up with the right system. Muhammad Latif Chaudhery Saheb of Lahore can testify that the Allama himself never fell for NAMAZ. In his TV interview (I have the video), the Allama goes through the motions of four units of NAMAZ in 20 seconds. Why? - To pacify rogue elements into believing that he was a NAMAZI and thus save his life.]

"Maulana" Abul Kalam Azad [Believe me or not, those who recite Namaz do so for show off. Should I "recite" Namaz? - Tarjaman-il-Quran]

Quaid-e-Azam M.A. Jinnah [Let not your your religion distract you from any productive work and from serving the fellow humans. - Hector Bolitho, the biographer]
