Maududi’s corrupt ideology in the name of Islam


By Umme Abdullah al-Hindi

Followers of Muslim Brotherhood movement and Jamat-e-Islami in India, Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey, and other nations, look at Moulana Maududi with high regards for his literature and the ideology that shaped a brand of “Political Islam”.

And people often ask me—“what’s wrong with Maududi’s book Khilafat-o-Mulookiyat?”

I read the book myself and I found it absolutely corrupt without even any scholar pointing out anything in it for me.

Maududi’s core agenda was—the purpose why Allaah created humans, and the religion and the Shareeah is purely to establish Caliphate system. The purpose of every creation was to establish the Caliphate and the rule of Allaah on the earth.

It sounds good. Isn’t it?

Firstly, as usual, Moulana Maududi wrote out of pure conjecture without providing any proofs for his hogwash. According to him, the purpose of creating mankind was to establish the Caliphate.

Let’s remember the words of Allaah the most High in this regard.

“And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).” [Ref: Quran 51:56]

And the most clear verse of the Quran which destroys the conjecture of Moulana Maududi is—“Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).” [Ref: Quran 24:55]

So the above verse clearly states that Allaah will “grant” Khilafah/Caliphate to those who worship him and do righteous deeds. Khilafah is only secondary and conditional to Eeman or faith. And it is GRANTED by Allaah to those who EARN IT through worship. Not the other way round, that Muslims establish it through turmoil and bloodshed like Maududi believed and preached.

Secondly,  he not only attacked the Sahaba but his uncontrollable tongue didn’t even spare the Prophets who were Masoom (innocent) and free of blame as Allaah asserts this to us.

For example, he called Prophet Moosa (peace be upon him) a hasty, rash and impatient person who was foolish during the incident of Khidr.

And he called Prophet Yusuf (peace be upon him) an unjust ruler. So his tongue did not shy away from spewing venom against the Prophets, the Sahaba are another matter entirely as there are so many of them he reviled.

 And Allaah said about the Sahaba,  “And the first to embrace Islam of the Muhajirun (those who migrated from Makkah to Al-Madinah) and the Ansar (the citizens of Al-Madinah who helped and gave aid to the Muhajirun) and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith). Allah is well-pleased with them as they are well-pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success.”[Ref: Quran 9:100]

Allaah has declared for perpetuity that He is pleased by the Muhajireen and the Ansar and those who followed them upon goodness.

But Moulana Maududi finds faults with them. He considers himself above Allaah to revile the Sahabas and judge them through his speech and writings. He judged the Muhajir, the Dhun Nurain,  Uthman, regarding whom Allaah already said in the Quran that He is pleased with the Muhajiroon without exception. He reviled Abdurrahman ibn Awf, another Muhajir. And countless others.

If people think Moulana Maududi has the right to override the judgment of Allaah and His Messenger, then it’s a grave error. True Muslims with real Eeman don’t think that way and they love who Allaah and his Messenger loves and they hate who they hate.

Thirdly, he denied and rejected several Sahih Ahadith like the sayings of the Fitnah/trial of the Dajjal because of his false, invented principle that a hadith only follows logic. If the hadith is logical, it is true and if it is not logical and not comprehensible or impractical, then its false and to be rejected. This invented principle made him reject several important ahadith related to Dajjal and Aakhiruz-zamaan.

These are only three big mistakes of Aqeedah which I took directly from the book. He has other mistakes in the same book and several other mistakes in other books.

In truth, he was a power hungry communist Marxist like his Muslim brotherhood contemporaries and successors.

Lastly, those who say why Saudi Arabia bestowed the King Faisal award upon him, then the truth is that Saudi Arabia and Saudis trust and appreciate anyone who is known for contributing for Islam. They trust Muslims and bestow awards and charity and money like the sea upon Muslims who later backstab them and call their rulers Taghoot (false-god) and Kafir  (Visit) and bootlickers of the West.

And those people who think Saudi Arabian ruling family is a Taghoot anyway, then it shouldn’t matter for them who they award because even their awards are Taghoot and meaningless so the award given to Maududi is meaningless and worthless.
