Jinnah (r.a) The Saint - Fascinating Spiritual Dimensions of Quaid-e-Azam's life (Part 2)

Pakistan, the Madina-e-Sani
A lot has been written on Quaid-e-Azam and his life but his spiritual dimension is suppressed in his political life. Recently an article composed by one of our team-mate put some light on this topic Jinnah(r.a) The Saint - Fascinating Spiritual Dimensions of Quaid-e-Azam's life which was the first effort of its kind to throw some light on the spiritual dimensions of Baba Quaid's life for the English readers. InshaAllah in this piece of writing, I will try to shed some more light on this topic and make it crystal clear that Jinnah(r.a) was a pious and very practicing muslim and that he wanted to establish a system based on the model of Khilafat-e-Rashida in Pakistan.
There are two types of factions who spread rumors about the personal life and vision of Baba Quaid without taking in consideration the real facts. One faction calls him infidel (God forbids), they will be answered in the later part of the article, while the second is a group of defeatist-minded liberal fascists who blame Quaid of being secular. Their only logic is the excerpt of the speech of Baba Quaid which he delivered in front of the constituent assembly on 11th August 1947. It states:
"You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed that has nothing to do with the business of the State.... We are starting with this fundamental principle that we are all citizens and equal citizens of one State....Now I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal and you will find that in course of time Hindus would cease to be Hindus and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the State."
 Lets see whether he spoke anything against Islam or actually followed the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w). The Charter of Madina was the first constitution of the world.Lets study the article 30 of this charter, it states:
"Bani Auff (a tribe of jews) are now  politically united with the Muslims. The jews and Muslims are free to follow their own religionwithout any discrimination, and their respective allies also have the freedom of religion"
Its clear from the above statement that Holy Prophet(s.a.w.w) gave freedom of religion to everyone, even the last verse of Surah-e-Kafiroon states that: "For you is your religion, and for me is my religion."
So, Quaid-e-Azam actually followed sunnah of Prophet Mohammad(s.a.w.w) by vowing to give everyone the freedom of religion. Similarly, granting minorities all types of basic rights was stated in article 31-40 of the charter of Madinah. So it is not at all against Islam. Actually the blamer doesn't understand the difference between "secularism" and "freedom of religion", which are completely contrast terminologies, or may be the payroll is more attractive than listening to their conscience.
Quaid-e-Azam delivered this speech three days before the creation of Islamic Ideological state of Pakistan just like Prophet Mohammad(s.a.w.w) presented the Charter of Madinah, before the creation of the Islamic ideological state of Madinah. All this propaganda of putting a label of being 'secular' was started by the hostile Hindu press during his life. Quaid-e-Azam replied them while addressing a gathering in Chittagong in march 1948.
He said:
"You are only voicing my sentiments and the sentiments of millions of Mussalmans when you say that Pakistan should be based on pure foundations of social justice and Islamic socialism"
Now coming to the other faction who call Quaid-e-Azam infidel (God Forbid). Today, I will quote some unheard and untold revelations which tell us about the greatness of the man who dressed in English, spoke English, had no beard, but still, he is the greatest soldier of RasoolAllah(s.a.w.w) of his era. History has not produced such a great leader for the last 300 years at least! 

The speculators blame him for not offering his prayers, but it doesn't mean that he didn't pray if someone has not seen him offering prayers. Only few people were blessed with the opportunity of seeing him offering his prayers. One of those lucky people was Maulana Hasrat Mohani, an eminent Urdu poet who participated in the struggle movement for Pakistan due to which he was imprisoned many a times.
Hasrat Mohani tells that one day, very early in the morning he went to to see Jinnah(r.a) to deliver him a very important message, I informed the servant but he said that no one is allowed to go into his room at the moment, after a while he will come out himself. As, it was a very critical message and I had to deliver it to Jinnah(r.a) as soon as possible, I went into the house and as I was in the adjacent room to Quaid's room, I heard someone crying like a child, as it was Quaid's voice, I worriedly glanced into his room secretly. What I saw was that Quaid was in a state of Sajdah (prostration) and was praying (dua) for something while crying. I secretly went out of the house and never did the mistake of breaking his privacy again.

Quaid-e-Azam with Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, at Badshahi Mosque
Quaid-e-Azam wanted a purely Islamic, interest-free economy to be established in Pakistan. In the presence of Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, an educated youth inquired Baba Quaid about the economic system that was to be imposed in Pakistan. Qauid-e-Azam pointed towards Maulana Zafar Ali Khan and told him to answer the question. Maulana Zafar Ali Khan says that he thought for a long time about Capitalism, Communism, socialism etc, but as the Quaid noticed that I am taking too long, he said:
"Why you not give them the Quranic Guidance about this?"
Maulana Zafar Ali Khan said that he was left speechless by this reply.

Addressing the gathering at the inauguration of State Bank of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam said:
The economic system of the West has created almost insoluble problems for humanity and to many of us it appears that only a miracle can save it from disaster that is not facing the world. It has failed to do justice between man and man and to eradicate friction from the international field. On the contrary, it was largely responsible for the two world wars in the last half century. The Western world, in spite of its advantages, of mechanization and industrial efficiency is today in a worse mess than ever before in history. The adoption of Western economic theory and practice will not help us in achieving our goal of creating a happy and contended people. We must work our destiny in our own way and present to the world an economic system based on true Islamic concept of equality of manhood and social justice. We will thereby be fulfilling our mission as Muslims and giving to humanity the message of peace which alone can save it and secure the welfare, happiness and prosperity of mankind.

Quaid-e-Azam was the only leader who rejected the Government of India Act 1935 according to which the country was to be made a federation. On this the British Prime Minister James Ramsay MacDonald called Baba Quaid for a private meeting, and tried to convince him by offering him the Governorship of a province and the title of 'Lord'. On the this Baba Quaid wanted to leave the place and didn't even shake hands with British PM. The PM was astonished and asked him the reason, Baba Quaid said seriously: "I will NOT meet you again because you think that I am for sale"  Indeed Baba Quaid was "uncorruptable and unpurchasable"

Baba Quaid detested sectarianism. He had immense love for Ahl-e-Bayt (The household of Prophet Muhammad). On 21st Ramadhan, the day when Hazrat Ali(r.a) was martyred, Baba Quaid used to cancel all his meetings. Addressing a gathering at Aligarh University, he said: "Tell me, My boy, if you take out Hazrat Umar from Islamic history, what is left in it?"

Hold on, I have not yet quoted the spiritual climax of Quaid-e-Azam's life.
Baba Quaid disgusted by the ignorance of muslims and hostile attitude of Congress left politics and took off to England to spent the rest of his life over there. But soon, he came back. No one actually knows about what was the real persuasive force behind his return. Quaid-e-Azam told his friends, himself.
"I was sleeping in my flat in London and the time was just after the midnight. Someone shook my bed, I woke up, confusedly looked here and there and slept after seeing that there was no one. Again, someone shook my bed, this time I stood up, came out of my room but there was no one again, so I thought that its nothing but an earthquake, so I slept again. The third time, Someone shook my bed with immense force, as i opened my eyes, i sensed a sweet fragrance and noticed that an extraordinary personality is in my room 

"Who are you?", asked I.

"I am your Prophet Muhammad (s.a.ww)", replied an affectionate voice.

I uttered 'Peace Be Upon you, my Lord' unconsciously.

Then a sweet voice uttered,"Mr. Jinnah! You are urgently required by the Muslims of the sub-continent and I order you to lead the freedom movement. I am with you. Don't worry at all, you will succeed in your mission inshaAllah"

"Yes My Lord" I heard myself saying.

I kept sitting like a statue, with the mixed feelings of excitement and astonishment, I thought Where I stand and Where Prophet(s.a.w.w) stands, and he came to meet a sinful person like me! This was the  reason that I returned to Sub-Continent" After return, in the presence of Sardar Abdurrab Nishtar and Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, Baba Quaid said:
"I was living like a landlord in London. Now I have returned to India just to strive for a government on the basis of la ilaha illallah (There is no god but God), so that the muslims of Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait, Arabia, Iraq, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, and Egypt can combine to form a great united block of mulsim nations" [Book: Mubashiraat-e-Pakistan, Author: Zahoor-ul-Hasan]

This means that Baba Quaid actually wanted a government on pure foundation of Islamic principles and the united block of muslim nations clearly indicated that Quaid wanted to re-establish Khilafah. Baba Quaid resigned from All India Congress in 1920 and one of the main reason behind it was the calling off of disobedience movement by Gandhi just when the Khilafat movement had reached its climax.
The word united block, league of nations used by Baba Quaid(r.a) and Baba Iqbal (r.a) clearly indicated towards the re-establishment of Khilafah.

Baba Iqbal says in his booklet, Islam and Ahmedism said that:
"Islamic solidarity is a guarantee for a practical uniform spiritual atmosphere in the world of Islam, it facilitates the political combination of Muslim states, which combination either assume the form of world-state or of a League of Muslim states... That is how the conceptual structure of this simple faith is related to the process of time"

These are one of the most fascinating aspects of Baba Quaid's spiritual life till date. These spiritual dimensions have never been presented to our youth by any medium and this is sole reason that the youth is misled by paid propaganda machines and personnel. These revelations clearly show that Quaid was a staunch follower of Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad(s.a.w.w) and that Pakistan came into being by the direct faiz(blessing) of our Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w).
