Below is another refutation against some the mufti says members that nobody in south Africa takes Hadhrat A.S. Desai serious or listens to him,,,, Who did they ask? Salafies or the righteous and ulema?
Mufti Afzal Husayn Ilyas regarding Hazrat Maulana’s harshness when condemning evil:
“Who are you to judge him?
Study Islamic History, you will find that as per the temperament of the people ALLAAH sends a Nabi accordingly – sometimes firm, other times soft – but in the Shariat of Hadhrat Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) all types of people have been catered for.
Thus if one method does not work use another. In different situations different methods are used. Thus Moulana has got his method. His services will and cannot be forgotten. Your definition of ‘Ambassador of Islaam’ is not correct. My suggestion is to meet the man.
Enjoining what is Right and forbidding evil has various levels, degrees, methods and stages. Firmness can be seen in the life of Sahabah (radhiyallahu anhum). Actions of Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), Hadhrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu anhu), Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) and Hadhrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) can be read.
True Ambassodors of Islaam are the sahabah (radhiyallahu anhum) – read our translation of ‘Hayaatus Sahabah’ for more details. If a person is burning in a house, a robber is about to steal, a murder about to happen, now when raising the alarm are you going to for in for ‘Tajqeed’ lessons.
There are different methods for different situation whilst different react differently. See the severity, velocity of the sin and firstly recognize sin to be sin which most do not know – this reformation is virtually impossible… “
