UN Rights Experts Urge Pakistan To Protect Ahmadiyya Muslim Minorities

Three United Nations experts on freedom of religion, minority issues, and summary executions have called on Pakistan to adopt urgent measures to stop faith-based killings and ensure the security of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, whose faith is outlawed in the country.

    Our position on Hadiths

    We have frequent comments about Hadiths and some of them are overly critical and do not offer a balanced view.

    So, I need to post this comment, with slight variations, every so often, to give our readers a balanced and fair view about the collection of Hadiths.

    We just have to understand and read the books of Hadiths, with better understanding and wisdom and not take every thing as ‘gospel truth.’

    There are fabricated Hadith and then there are wonderful Hadiths.

    The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community follows a simple matrix or yard stick that those Hadiths that cannot be harmonized with the Quranic teachings have to be laid aside.

    Let me share with all readers, two very beautiful collections of Hadith:

    1. Gardens of the Righteous by Imam Nawawi, translated into English by Sir Zafrulla Khan.

    2. A Collection of Sayings of the Prophet Muhammad with Foreword by Mahatma Gandhi

    Anyone who reads these collections, will find that there is a large collection of real gems of Hadiths, which we have to look for and find, from the vast collection, some of which are distasteful and a few real ugly!

    I will soon, God willing, make a post to this effect and highlight it in our daily email as well.
