Dear betay Umar, AA
I might be the only one on the Forum to know that you are just a youngster in your 20s. You keep astonishing me with your marvelous intellect and meticulous articulation and expression, Ma-Sha-Allah!
ALLAH KI DAIN HAI JISAY DAY
MIRAAS NAHIN BALAND NAAMI
Dr. Qamar Zaman has been shunning my probing questions on email for nearly one week now while I have proceeded with my R&R (Research and Reflection) in the meantime. A life-long student won't rush with anything, so I have not dismissed SAUM yet.
THE FIRST CLUE: Dr. Qamar Zaman advertises himself as an M.D. while he is no doctor of any kind. His work on NAMAAZ, SAUM and HAJJ is by no means original.
SECOND CLUE: Many brothers and sisters on the forum might know that: The fake names AIDID SAFAR and SAIM BAKAR from Malaysia wrote a book a few years ago, ARAB CONSPIRACIES AGAINST ISLAM and they had been misleading Muslims for about a decade. They are reported to be in a Malaysia prison at this time for copyright infringements.
THIRD CLUE: Although this gang might be right at places, "Dr." Zaman seems to have plagiarized his conjecture "work" from the other two. A man identifying himself as Dr. Qamar Zaman from Lahore spoke to me yesterday. But the background noises divulged the reality as Bangkok and the man could hardly utter one correct English sentence. He spoke fluent Punjabi though and hung up quickly.
FOURTH CLUE: Why and where are they hiding? Qamar is supposed to be in Lahore but I think he lives in the West. They should at least announce their phone numbers and return phone calls. If they are conducting intellectual JIHAD for the UMMAH, fear must not enter the equation.
Their work so far:
ANDHAY KO ANDHAIRAY MEIN BARI DOOR KI SOOJHI
They seem to have some valid and reformative points but not sufficiently straightforward and convincing reasons to demolish SAUM.
