I READ YOUR ATTACHMENTS AND I AGREE. YOU ARE QUITE OK. HOWEVER I THINK THAT SOME WRITERS WHO HAVE WRITTEN HISTRORY IN THE PAST, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THEY MEAN FROM THAT THE HISTORY OF MUSLIMS not THE
HISTORY OF ISLAM. SUCH AS THE "TARIKH-E-ISLAM" OF MAULANA AKBAR SHAH NAJEEB ABADI. I THINK HE WROTE IT FOR MUSLIMS TO LEARN LESSON FROM IT AND DO NOT REPEAT THE MISTAKES. HOWEVER YOU ARE QUITE RIGHT ON YOUR VIEW.
Message of ISLAM is universal, which relies on the mind as its sole arbiter & forbids the submission of man to man. On the base of its complete adaptability to all people in just the same way & same proportion is called the Natural religion. Unlike other religions ISLAM is absolutely clear & easy to understand by all. Islam is in complete harmony with the natural sciences. But sorry to mention Muslims being engaged within inner disputes failed to take the advantage of such Quranic texts unless the progress of natural sciences disclosed the meanings thereof.
As here is debate about Islamic History/ Muslim History
regarding this issue let me quote saying of Imam Khumane
"Those who do show concerns about Islamic Heroes, actiually are engaged to defame Islamic universal & moral valves."
For different school of thoughts,I refer text of Quran- Sunnah & leave it to the readers to judge the truth & priorty.
"ALLAH, besides Whom there is no God worthy of worship, the Eternal, the Self-subsistent, by taketh Him not nor doth sleep; his whatsoever is in heavens and whatsoever is on earth. Who is there, in the heavens or on the earth, that can intercede with Him without His permission, for none is equal or like unto Him. He knoweth men's future & past, yet nought of His knowledge can they grasp save what He willeth them to know.His knowledge extendeth over the heavens & the earth, & the preservation & control of both burdeneth Him not;He is the most High, the Great, none to compare with Him"
After ALLAH, the truth & authenticity is the source of Wisdom, charity,"¦"¦.: everything, prophet Muhammad P.B.U H. About Muhammad P.B.U.H. Allah says "˜They will find his name & qualities clearly given in the Torah & Evangel". Those seekers of truth, who endowed with a sense of justice, do recognize Holy Prophet. In case while explaining TAUHED, if any single word affects even the regards of shoes of head of prophets, we can no more be real Muslims.
There are many miracles which can easily prove the states of the best creation of universe, Muhammad P.B.U.H.
This worth praise greatest & the best prophet also used to attribute everything to the Lord. No might or power, indeed, did he ever attribute to himself or others where Allah & His cause were concerned; Muhammad P.B.U.H. reposed his faith in Allah to the exclusion of all others & thus was wont to say, "sufficient unto me is the Creator apart from the created, the Provider apart from the provided for; sufficient unto me is He Who sufficeth me; sufficient is Allah unto me for He is the Most Excellent Sufficiency."
And Followers of Allah & Muhammad P.B.U.H. are addressed in The Holy Quran
"Ye are the greatest people that were ever raised for the benefit of mankind"
But SORRY; we have no time neither for practice, preach, research"¦ nor to serve. As, we are presently engaged to provide room & chance to anti Islamic elements to show concerns about the blessings of Allah for universe ISLAM & repeating history of downfall of Bagdad, providing them chance to make Muslims an easy target , via our acts, disunity, lack of wisdom, greed, character, inhumanity, injustice,"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦& debates over minor issues;Though Quran-Sunnah is the best guideline. Resulting Muslims & their rulers, few among them being part of problem, have no time to focus main issues like Philistine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, Somalia, Iran, Yemen, Nuclear Pakistan"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦.victim & target of united anti Islamic forces; though Allah united Muslims with the strongest bond of brotherhood by saying "Verily believers are but brethren" And prophet Muhammad says "Muslims are like one body. If harm afflicts a certain part, the whole body is affected". But sorry, we don't realize pain of affected Muslims. Though Islam rigidly enjoined charity & benevolence towards the followers of other religions also, Allah says "Dispute not except in the kindliest manner with the people of the Scriptures"
I am not any Islamic scholar, so deserve forgiveness with guideline from Allah & fair direction from readers; it can be justified If we try to take advantage of our Briht history, instead to seek negative side. Which is the best tribute to our Heros.

Dear Rana Imran Javed sahib
Dear Rana Imran Javed sahib ,
Asslam O Alaikum
May Almighty Allah continue to bestow upon you and me, all His best blessings in this world and in the life hereafter - Aameen.
Your comments on the article titled “ History of Islam is not Islam “ are indeed a source of encouragement, guidance and interaction for us. It is believed that unbiased & scrupulous perusal of lines No. 5 to 21, 48, 51, 57 to 64, 66, 95 and 96 of my article would prove that Quraan-e-Majeed being the exclusive, perfect and credible guidance for Muslims, I have not mentioned any single “chapter” or “verse” of any other Holy Book, but, I have mentioned the most relevant 139 verses of Quraan-e-Majeed for the guidance and satisfaction of the dignified readers of my article.
It is however for the readers to decide as to how far they consider the teachings of “Islam” (Quraan & Sunnah) a complete code of life to promote the introduction of Almighty Allah (with all His Powers, Authorities & Mercy), the teachings & status of Prophets; whereby the believers are groomed through the process of Character-building, which aims at fraternity, unity, peace and healthy environments – which expects us to be tolerant, peaceful, useful, helpful and well-wishers for each other.
It is also for the readers to decide as to whether some of the followers of history (personalities, events & incidents mentioned therein) are becoming hostile, intolerant, inconvenient, harmful, envious and threat for each other, being hyper & jealous, on account of sectarianism, dis-unity, cast, creed, language, locality , hero-worship and superiority-complex.
However, the object & purpose of this article is vividly desired at its last para (from line No.93 to 103 of the article).
Thanks for affording me the opportunity to elucidate my bona-fide endeavours.
Your well-wisher: Agha Syed Atta-u-Allah Shah.
What are you trying to say????
Dear Agha sb,
I could not understand your view point, in my opinion your words look good but i think you have not studdied the subject thoroughly as it is confusing for a layman to understand.
You are mixing up the believes with the sunnah.
there are 2 things;
1st is that we as a muslim must have a firm belief on the Books of ALLAH and the Prophets(as) sent by Him, but we can not act upon any of the previous guide lines, and have to follow only & only Quran e Majeed and the Sunnah of our beloved Holy Prophet(saw).
2nd is that if we are failed to find any answer of the certain issue in these two sources directly, then we have to obey & follow the sunnah of Sahaba, Tabeen, Muhadditeen, Awlia & Saliheen of the Umma.
What ever mistakes made by muslims in the history must not be associated with the teachings of ISLAM, but the Muslim History is full of great work of the above named personnalities, which must be followed in its true letter & spirit.
Be clear in your views my friend, may ALLAH help you on the His clear & straight way.
Rana Imran Javed
