Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi Shaheed (r.t.a)
At 8:00 pm on Thursday night, 26 Rajab 1410 A.H., conforming to the 22
February 1990, the stalwart and founder of "Sipah-e-Sahabah (r.a)", the
Vice President of Jamiat-ul-Ulama Punjab, Principal of Jamia Mehmoodia,
member of the United Ulama Council and Sunni Ulama Front, mouthpiece
and orator of the Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhu), Hazrat Maulana Haq Nawaz
Jhangvi (Rahmatullah Alaye) was martyred.
"To Allah do We belong to Him is our return".
Hazrat Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi was born in 1954 in the town of Jhang.
After completing his primary education in Arabic and Theology, he left
for Multan where he studied in the renowned Islamic University,
Khair-ul-Madaris. He qualified as an Islamic Scholar/Alim in 1972 from
this university at the tender age of 19. After which he once more
returned to his home town, Jhang.
Maulana burdened his then feeble shoulders with the arduous task of
patronizing that enviable organization, "Sipah-e-Sahabah (r.a)" and
like a true soldier, he used all his resources for the dignity and
honor of the Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhu).
Although previously many Ulama had directed their resources to this
worthy cause, their efforts are pale in comparison to the enviable
dedication of Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi. Maulana had breathed new life
into the Sipah-e-Sahabah (r.a) and fought tooth and nail against the
Shias, till alas, he was martyred this holy cause.
Maulana argued that we are so sensitive regarding the dignity and honor
of our near and dear ones, but when derogatory remarks are passed
regarding Nabi Sallallaho alaihe wasallam, his family members and the
fruits of his 23 years labor and toil. i.e. the Sahabah-e-Karam
(Radiallahu Anhu), we cannot care less.
Jhang is politically and socially Shia-orientated and it has passed
through Shia leadership for several decades, but how true is the
"Every Firaun (Pharaoh) will meet his Moosa".
Allah Ta'ala created a Moosa in this very town, to defeat the Shiites
Fiaruns. Such was the courage and bravery of this Moosa, that he had
struck thunderous blows at the foundation of the currents of history in
an opposite direction.
Since the early centuries, the Ulama had declared the Shias are
non-Muslims. Ulama such as Ibn Taimiyah, and more recently Shah
Waliullah (Rahmatullah alaihe) had authored books clearly indicating
that the Shia were Kuffar, but Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi's style was
unique. He had boldly publicized these sentiments and declared the Shia
to be the worst brand of Kuffar. He held discourse for all people in
which he propagated the belief of the Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jama'at.
