A Sunni Friend asked if TARAWIH prayer was practiced during the time of Prophet Muhammad (pubhp) ? – by Imran Mehdi

islam-prayer_2605709bMy Response:

No it was not practiced by Prophet (p)
Tarawih was NOT done at the time of PROPHET ( P ).

Tarawih is one of the several new things started by Hazrat Omer.

Wahabi/ Salafi or Deobandi sunnis are very vocal on Bidat.

Bidat is a non-Islamic act a false additional ………. something started after the Prophet PBUH and haram additional to Islam and an act of the worst possible sin.

Example Milad un Nabi is bidat, Tarawih is not…….Why?

The same logic is Halal for them but haram for others.

It’s bidat and Haram to celebrate Eid Milad Nabi.  But not bidat to do Tarawih.

There is nothing wrong obviously in reciting Qur’an after Iftar.  Alhumdulilah who can say it’s bad?

RECITING Qur’an  in JAMAAT like wajib prayers is an additional in Islam at a higher level of Islamic adulteration compared to people chanting ya Nabi ya Nabi ya Nabi  or ya Husain ya Husain.

If the WAHABI / DEOBANDI response is….. it’s a good thing no harm is done only Qur’an is being recited. … Sure than if this logic is acceptable and used …. then every Muslim that perceives something good can apply the same principle like Sufi/Barelvi sunnis celebrate Eid Milad Nabi .  You cannot call Bidat to acts of other Muslim.

Sunni Islamic believe (especially due to the aggressive penetrating Saudi funding)  has changed the whole Sunni believe system in the last 20 years. This happened by planned takeover of mosques and Imams of these mosques. I am sure you have witnessed that closely.

This extreme Sunni ideology came to Arab though Abdul Wahab in Arabia and Shah Waliullah in India. Shah Waliullah actually spent time with Abdul Wahab.  Shah Waliullah Islamic ideology incorporated into a formal educational institution in the city of Deoband India in 1869. They were deadly against Pakistan at the time of its creation.

Unfortunately both Wahhabi/Salafi and Deobandi Islamic ideology treats Islamic believe as a restaurant menu. They choose what they like. They hide facts deliberately.  They declare apostasy if someone ask questions.  They refuse to acknowledge clear obvious facts. It’s my way or highway and no logic or philosophy or historical facts allowed. They twist and turn Islam to their own ideology and force this on others through their throat.

Sad part is no other Islamic ideology or believe has a chance to be right and they go even further by not only rejection and forceful implementation of their Version, they even started punishment.  Allah said in Qur’an if We wanted they could have all been same faith. Allah also said to Prophet (p) that We sent you as a messenger NOT a warden.

This is extremism at its best and what is known as Khawarji.  Khawarjism is not necessarily always a particular version of Islam. It’s the behavior with which its practiced and forcefully non islamic ways of implementation.

Now this Khawarjism has seeped in the mainstream Sunni Islam of Hanafi followers in non Arab world as Deobandi movement …… and in the Hanbali followers in the Arab world.

Does not matter who you would like to blame. At least call it what it is.

Like Imam Ali (as) and Imam Husain (as) in the past and if you read Islamic history in detail you will see that once again the blood of Hashmi and their loyal companions will be needed to battle this modern day Khawarjism.

Blood of modern Hashmi is the Blood line of Prophet Muhammad (p). If this blood shed will not be enough, this time, the 12 Imam (as) himself may come. Same Allah that can send Adam from no where, create Issa without a father, have angels which we can’t see can surly send the 12 Imam Mehdi (as).  Prophet (p) said the Imam will come, so I believe.  Will he come on this battle I don’t know.

Its quite clear. Islam has now divided into Khawarji camp and Husaini camp. Where do you stand?
One can’t have Khawarji believe in Husaini camp. There is a big difference between the two. Little bit of both ideology ….. That’s hypocrisy.  Hipocrisy is worse than Khawarjism.

The Husaini camp is not a shia camp it’s a Muslim camp, but NOT the place for the misguided ever growing Khawarji or hypocrite.

The majority of sunni are not even aware what is being hijacked and robbed. Fact is unfortunately for sunni believers …. especially the educated moderate and faithful, the majority,  have lost their Islam to Khawarjism and they are so naive, ignorant and disingenuous to all this.
Many just like to be mute perhaps because of weakness of faith.

What is Islam? Islam is what it means. If what it means has changed then it is lost.

Literally Slaughter of civilian men, old, young, children and women on street is Yazeediat not the Islam of Prophet Muhammad’s (p). This version of extremism of Islam has the vanguard of Islam now. While not all those are following this version agree to this slaughter they are increasingly following this same version of Islam and that’s a restaurant menu approach. Or the stupid one states that it’s actually not the salfi or Deobandi who do these acts, how convenient and blatantly obtuse.

Strength of Faith does not justify Righteousness.

Verse of Surah Bbaqra Allah is taking about the misguided believers not Kafir or Mushriq

(Quran 2: 7 – 2:11)

“…Indeed, those who disbelieve – it is all the same for them whether you warn them or do not warn them – they will not believe.

Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment.

And of the people are some who say, “We believe in Allah and the Last Day,” but they are not believers.

They deceive Allah and those who believe, but they deceive not except themselves and perceive [it] not.

In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.

And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.”

Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not.”


THEY HAVE LIED to you my friend and have lied to your parents. In the end when you get to the bottom of it, it is is a battle within. You have to fight your ignorance and conceit because these are the main reasons for a momin to dismiss clear proof.

The Islamic battle on the obvious is in fact an occult battle of the nafs. Neither Allah nor Islam is dependent nor needs my my righteousness nor my declaration to save Islam.

We are actually saving only ourselves and that is the point of true Islam. Everyone claims right path one needs to find the true path which one cannot find without ones ability to fight ignorance and conceit. Ignorance fuels conceit and conceit fuels ignorance.

Fighting in the way of God is not about saving God nor Islam. I am sure Allah does not need my saving grace. This is the test of the free will and its judicial disposition. When not placed correctly we are fighting Allah (Sarkashi against Allah).

The Muslims are doing SARKASHI (fighting Allah) which is worse than NAFARMANI (not following) while giving their lives for Islam thinking they are righteous but they can’t see this because of ignorance and or conceit for those who think at an individual level .

But then there are those who simply follow their Imams. Their Imams are leading them on path of destruction in this life and life after and DESTROYED Islam and its meaning all in the name of Islam itself. It’s actually a very evil smart way to change or challenge something by becoming the loudest and most prominent voice WITHIN,  with a CORRUPT VERSION and the simple naive ignorance of the followers will fall pray and it did.

Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.  Prophet PBUH acknowledged more than 70 sects. He never advice that we should be killing because of disagreement.

I think it’s a safer decision to follow Imam Ali (as) than compared to modern days Imam of Deobandi or Salafi. The place where I found most discussion and following of Imam Ali (as) was in the Husaini camp. It is not because I am a shia I follow Imam Ali. It’s because I follow Imam Ali (as ) I was labeled a Shia.

I am a Muslim who can’t live in a world of Islamic so called believers.
