Those announcing to form a state like Medina must first present themselves for Qisaas while following the sacred character of the holy Prophet (SAWW) - Hamid Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, January 19: The Patron in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulama Board and Head of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that those announcing to form a state like Medina must first present themselves for Qisaas while following the sacred character of the holy Prophet (Peace be Upon Him & His Progeny). Hazrat Ali Ibn-e-Abi Talib (A.S) appeared before the courts as an ordinary respondent during the tenure of his caliphate, the second caliph punished his own son, while upon receiving complaints from ordinary citizens, the sacred personalities of Islam handed over punishments even to the governors to ensure provision of indiscriminate justice. Today, the entire world is ruled by oppression, brutality and injustice. Rulers, politicians and those appointed as judges must remember the saying of Maula Ali (A.S) which goes, “Stay connected with people in such a way that if you stay alive, people are eager to meet you while if you die, then they mourn your death”. Agha Moosavi was addressing to a delegation of Tanzeem Shia Aaima Masajid led by its Chairman Allama Syed Tasawar Hussain Naqvi al Qummi.

Agha Moosavi noted that the purpose of Islamic state is to establish justice and fair-play as the Almighty Allah says in the holy Quran “O Believers! Be upholders of justice, and bearers of witness to truth for the sake of Allah, even though it may either be against yourselves or against your parents and kinsmen, or the rich or the poor: for Allah is more concerned with their well-being than you are. Do not, then, follow your own desires lest you keep away from justice. If you twist or turn away from (the truth), know that Allah is well aware of all that you do” (Surah Nisa, verse No. 135). He said that a saying of Ameer-ul- Momineen Hazrat Ali Ibn-e-Abi Talib (A.S) goes “A state can survive with Kufr (infidelity) but not injustice”. Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi stressed that Ali (A.S) is that Chief justice whose example cannot be found in the history. Justice of Murtaza, Faqr of Abuzar and righteousness of Salman eradicated the tyranny of Qaisar o Kisra.

He said that Islam orders to perform justice while before Islam the women and orphans were kept deprived of justice through social directives and subsequently they were the weakest section of the society and faced open injustice during the pre-Islam era of barbarousness. He said that justice for all means that collective matters are resolved in accordance with justice and fair-play as without equal and indiscriminate dispensation of justice to everyone, order cannot be maintained in the society. He said that it is an integral part of the conditions of justice that it is not only established but the flag of justice is kept high all the time and any compromise on justice must be prevented with full force. Witnesses must not be given to support any particular party rather it must be for the consent of Almighty Allah as without a truthful witness, the establishment of justice cannot be ensured. He said that for the sake of justice it is mandatory to speak truth as witness even if it adversely impacts the interests of your own relatives. While witnessing, do not consider the relation, designations or social status of the parties as no one else could be more concerned for their well-being than Almighty Allah. Keeping biasness while witnessing is not friendship but enmity. During witnessing, facts must be kept in mind without deteriorating them with your personal wishes or desires as by deteriorating the facts, the judge would never be able to reach the crux of the facts. If you distort or hide facts, mix your personal desires and become a source of injustice then it will never be hidden from God and you will be held accountable. Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that Allah proclaims in the verse 8 of Surah Maida that the enmity of any party must not flare you up to an extent that you deviate from the path of justice, perform justice as it is better accepted by your God.
