Muslims not only initiated the first war of independence in 1857 but also sacrificed their lives in large numbers. Nearly 60,000 Islamic scholars (ulema) were hanged by the British, most of them on the high ways. The participation of Muslims in general and the Islamic scholars in particular was not only for the independence of the country but also to safeguard Islam and establish the truth. These were the words expressed by JB Mohammed Atharullah Sharief while addressing at the inaugural session of the 2 day Jamaat Islami Hind Gulbarga Regions cadre meet in Gulbarga on Saturday the 22nd March 2014.
The Islamic movement was actually founded by none other than Prophet Muhammad pbuh and the objective was to establish the rule of the Almighty. Later the struggle to establish deen (rule of the Almighty) was undertaken by many at different stages and in different parts of the world.
Mr Atharullah Sharief said, after the establishment of communism in Russia, many Indians were influenced by the revolution. And many Muslims who didn’t had the true knowledge & teachings of Islam and had considered it to be religion of rituals also got yielded to communism. Moulana Syed Abu Aala Moududi, he said, came out with strong literature which conveyed the true spirit and message of Islam, which not only speaks about the success hereafter but also success in this world also, which influenced intellectuals and the likeminded people came together to for Jamaat e Islami.
After the independence Moulana Abu Lais Islahi took over leadership of Jamaat e Islami hInd in India and the struggle for the establishment of deen resumed. In initial days of partition, due to the eruption communal violence, most of its energies had to be spent for relief work and the actual work of spreading the ideological message hampered. In the later years when the things were becoming normal, Jamaat addressed the country men both Muslims and non Muslims alike with its message of divine guidance.
The two day workers conference started with Quranic discourse of jb Syed Sajid Saleem. He called upon the participants to put their energies for the cause for which you are chosen. That is to establish deen. For this he said you have to develop those qualities as enshrined in Quran.
JB Mohammed Yousuf Kanni, Regional Organizer, JIH Gulbarga Region, said, it is an era of spreading false teachings of Islam, Prophet Muhammed pbuh and Islam so that doubt is created among the masses. Under these circumstances, the cadre of Jamaat has to understand their responsibility and remove the misconcepts in the mind of people.

Jb S. Ameen ul Hasan, Member Central Advisory Council, JIH spoke on “Punished people”. Speaking on the topic in the light of Quran, he said, the people followers of the Prophets before Prophet Ibrahim were punished for their disobediences to the Almighty even after they were warned by their Prophets. They include the people of Nooh(a), Hood(a), Saleh(a) and Loot(a). They were punished with natural calamities like earthquakes, floods, rains etc.
The people of the period of Shoeb(a) were involved corrupt practices. The Firon during the period of Moosah(a) had become a dictator and divided the people. The people during the period of Eisa(a) were guilty of killing their Prophets. Thus they were punished.
Speaking on the philosophy of rise and fall of nations, he said Allah SWT likes only pious people. He makes some nations to command over the other, he gives the administrative powers to only those who have the ability to do so, and only those who have better morality are preferred, the nations are tested with number of hurdles and difficulties before they are given the power to rule. He said, the communities are judged in this world only where individuals are judged in the hereafter.
