The Truth Revealed - Kalematul Haqq (PB)
According to Fiqh E Jaferia ..... This book is a result of one man’s journey into the realm of spiritualism. It has been the nature of every human being from time immemorial, to wonder about the creation and the Creator; and to ponder about the origin of our species and the ultimate direction that we are all headed in. The author was no exception from having a yen for the gratification of this curiosity. Born in a Muslim family, he was nonetheless coached by his father, a noted intellectual and an author of several books himself, not to accept any faith simply because he happened to be born into it. This was also in keeping with the Quranic injunction which categorically states to not adhere blindly to traditions simply because they have been handed down by the forefathers; but rather, to seek knowledge and search out the logical path based on personal investigation and sound reasoning. This book: “The Truth Revealed” is an outcome of such an endeavour.
Raised in the Indian sub-continent, the author was exposed to a multitude of religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Zoroastrianism. He took it upon himself to investigate not only the religion of his own birth, but also the scriptures pertaining to the other creeds. Volume 2 of this book [under publication] reflects his research from the various scriptures of the aforementioned religions. To his surprise, he discovered that every religion that he investigated revealed in its holy scriptures the predictions about the advent of a “final prophet and his holy family”. Not only did the scriptures contain these predictions, but every prophet of the various religions prior to the advent of Islam was depicted in their own scriptures as invoking the blessings and intercession of the “yet to arrive, final prophet and his holy family”. Toward this end, the author has submitted several references and extracts of the actual texts from the holy scriptures of the different faiths.
Having arrived at the conclusion that Islam is indeed the right path, he was yet again faced with the dilemma as to which of its many sects was the true path leading to salvation. There was the holy Quran on the one hand and an overwhelming abundance of so-called “true traditions” on the other. His research in sifting through this mass of sometimes contradictory data, and arriving at a rational decision acceptable to reason and sound judgment, continued over a couple of decades. Being a judge by profession, the author was able to apply his 35 years of experience to arrive at conclusions which were fair and equitable in all possible manners.
Volume 1 of this book describes the methodology applied by the author in sifting through the many books of traditions, history and exegesis. His modus opperandus was to keep the holy Quran as the bench-mark and to evaluate the various traditions within the context of the Quranic verses. Historical accounts were minutely scrutinized in light of the historians’ allegiances and their reliability; while exegetes were examined for their biases and/or integrity. This first volume highlights the crucial role played by Ali Ibne Abi Taleb in the establishment and preservation of Islam from the first moment of its announcement to the migration of the holy Prophet from Mecca to the city of Medina. In addition, various verses from the Quran have been referenced for the benefit of the readers in an attempt to apprise and enlighten them of the elevated status of the Ahlul Bait [the family of the holy Prophet] in general, and Imam Ali in particular. Historical events have been discussed, ruminating on the opinions of a broad cross-section of many noted scholars – both, oriental and occidental. Several relevant verses of the holy Quran have been cited to identify the true believers as those who remained steadfast by the side of the Prophet in adverse circumstances, as opposed to those who precipitately deserted the Apostle abandoning him and the cause of Islam. This volume also casts a probing glance on some of the milestone events of Islam like the religious encounter [Mubahila] with the Christian delegation; the Treaty of Hudaibiya with the Qureish of Mecca and the Event of Ghadeer wherein the nomination of Ali Ibne Abi Taleb as the Lord and Master of the Muslims after him, was publicly announced by the Prophet.
The second volume of this book contains several references from other religious scriptures predicting the eventual advent of Islam as the final religion. It also traces the chronological sequence of the various battles of Islam, and the condition of the Muslim Ummah as it progressively moved forward from a budding religion to a nation state. The author has given a new slant in describing the many battles of Islam, discussing the finer points of individual roles played by various companions in fulfilling and or relegating on their responsibilities in light of their personal conducts.
Volume 3 continues with the portrayal of the events as they unfolded after the demise of the Prophet. The Event of Saqifa which led to the establishment of the early Caliphates of Abu Bakr as the first Caliph, followed by Omar and Osman; and finally ending with the Imamate of Ali Ibne Abi Taleb are discussed in detail. It also records many of the priceless quotations, irrefutable judgments and interesting anecdotes and pearls of wisdom contained in many of the documents and letters penned from the hand of this immaculate Imam. Lastly, this volume also takes a brief look at the life sketches of the other infallible Imams from the household of the holy Prophet.
Some of the other notable works by the author are:
Caliphate And Imamate.
Imamate And The Prophethood.
The Event Of Saqifa And Its Consequences.
The Sermon Of The Immaculate Lady Fatima In The Court Of The First Caliph.
Discourses With An Old Friend.
An Anthology of Poems In Persian And Urdu.
And in a different vein – The Prey And The Hunter, which discusses the wildlife and its habitats in the forests of South India.
Countless booklets and articles on various subjects dealing with socio-religious subjects were also penned by the author and distributed to individuals as well as monthly journals.
