SELECTED ISLAMIC CORRESPONDENCE: Correspondence from the Archive of Dr Umar Azam [May 1984 – May 2005]

 

MANCHESTER, UK

 

M a y 2005 

 

INTRODUCTION



I think that there was a need for a correspondence archive on my Website www.dr-umar-azam.com Several visitors informed me in e-mails that they did find the ‘Guestbook Archive’ section of the Site interesting. Whereas the ‘Guestbook Archive’ section is simply concerned with visitors’ reactions to the Site itself and my work on my Site, this section is more diverse, being concerned with topics as diverse as international politics, academic scholarship and marriage! My documented Islamic work has been ongoing from May 2004 to the present day [5 May 2005]. The selection in this paper has been chosen from within these years - if it is interesting, enjoyable or educational; a random and pragmatic approach such as this has meant that there is no chronological order. The items of correspondence are of varying length; obvious replies, or letters of origin, for reasons of economy of words, have been omitted. Correspondence both by British Royal Mail [the older letters] and by e-mail has been included. The selection was made from those pieces of correspondence near at hand, and not in the Archive of some University Library; there is a regret that even more interesting correspondence may have been selected if easily accessible but, having said that, this particular selection is no reserve or substitute, and is just as worthy of merit, if in the main fairly recent. At the risk of my work appearing garish, I have decided to use colour because this is what the majority of the visitors to my Site want [anyway, anyone who feels that the text is too bright may print out this work and read it on paper, rather than directly from the computer screen]!

[1]  FROM SANA, 17, STOKE-ON-TRENT, UK, TO DR AZAM IN 2003

SALAM, MUSLIM BROTHER.  JAZAK ALLAH KHAIR FOR YOUR WEB SITE ANDF MAY ALLAH REWARD YOU WITH HIS BLESSINGS FOR HAVING SUCH VALUABLE INFORMATION REGARDING ISLAM ON YOUR SITE.  I AM A NEW CONVERT TO ISLAM, QUITE A YOUNG ONE ACTUALLY.  I AM SEVENTEEN IN DECEMBER.  I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD POST ME AS MUCH INFORMATION AS POSSIBLE ON ISLAMIC TOPICS SUCH AS 'DREAMS' AND 'DUAS'.  I'VE LEFTHOME AND MY SITUATION IS AWFUL.  BUT I AM GRATEFUL TO ALLAH BECAUSE I'M SURE THERE IS SOMEONE WORSE IN A WORSE SITUATION THAN ME SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD. 

REPLY FROM DR AZAM TO SANA IN 2003


MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU; HARDSHIPS ARE A TEST FROM ALLAH!  YOU'VE SEEN MY WEBSITE AND YOU'LL KNOW THAT ALL THE WORK CAN BE DOWNLOADED.  WOULD YOU LIKE OTHER BOOKLETS POSTED TO YOU BY ROYAL MAIL?  ALSO, PLEASE TELL ME MORE ABOUT YOURSELF. ALHAMDOLILLAH THAT YOU HAVE BECOME A BELIEVER. BUT WHAT MADE YOU CONVERT?  WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO DO TO MAKE YOUR LIFE A SUCCESS DESPITE THESE OBSTACLES?  PLEASE REMEMBER THAT I'M ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT YOU IF YOU COME ACROSS ANY DIFFICULTY OR PROBLEM REGARDING YOUR FAITH.

[2]  FROM ABDUL, 21, MANCHESTER, UK TO DR AZAM ON 16 MAY 2004

ASSALAMU ALAIKUM: DEAR RESPECTED DR SAHIB, MASHA’ALLAH, IT IS A WONDERFUL WEBSITE. I’LL LEARN A LOT FROM YOUR WEBSITE. IT’S GOT, MASHA’ALLAH, ALL THE TOPICS ANYONE CAN THINK OF. I WISH I COULD MAKE A WEBSITE AS GOOD AS YOURS BUT I AM NOT VERY EDUCATED LIKE YOURSELF. MAY ALLAH REWARD YOU FOR ALL THE EFFORT YOU HAVE PUT INTO THIS TO MAKE IT A WONDERFUL WEBSITE.

REPLY FROM DR AZAM ON 18 MAY 2004


WA LAIKUM SALAM, ABDUL! I BELIEVE THAT MY EDUCATION AND KNOWLEDGE MUST ALWAYS BE USED FOR THE BENEFIT OF PEOPLE, IN THE SERVICE OF ISLAM! WHEN I DO ZIKR [REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH], SOMETIMES I INTEND THAT EVERY ATOM OF MY BEING, MY EXISTENCE, IS IN THE SERVICE OF ALLAH MOST HIGH!  THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR WONDERFUL COMMENT! MAY ALLAH GIVE YOU GREAT SUCCESS IN THIS WORLD AND THE NEXT, AND MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU! AMEEN!

[3] FROM AWAIS, OSMANIA UNIVERSITY, ON 15 SEPTEMBER 2003

DEAR SIR, ASSALAMU ALAIKUM. I AM ASKING FOR YOUR HELP IN GETTING A SUGGESTION ABOUT LOAN AND INTEREST MATTERS ACCORDING TO ISLAM. MY FRIEND WANTS A LOAN FROM ME. HE SAID HE WILL RETURN THE MONEY IN THREE YEARS. HE IS TAKING THIS LOAN FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF FOUR FLATS ON HIS LAND FOR INVESTMENT. HE SAID HE WILL REPAY ME AN EQUAL AMOUNT EACH MONTH OVER THREE YEARS. APART FROM THIS MONTHLY REPAYMENT TO ME, HE IS ALSO OFFERING TO PAY PART OF THE RENT – WHEN HE STARTS GETTING THE RENT, ONCE THE FLATS ARE READY. NOW IS THIS CONSIDERED AS A RETURN ON INVESTMENT OR IS IT CONSIDERED TO BE INTEREST?

REPLY FROM DR AZAM TO AWAIS ON 16 SEPTEMBER 2003

THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTION. THE PART OF THE RENT WHICH YOUR FRIEND PROMISES TO GIVE YOU IS INVESTMENT, NOT INTEREST. IF THE MONTHLY REPAYMENT HAD AN EXTRA AMOUNT ADDED TO IT [IF THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAYABLE OVER THREE YEARS EXCEEDS THE ORIGINAL AMOUNT IN ANY WAY], THAT WOULD BE INTEREST. YOUR PORTION OF THE RENT PAYMENT RECEIVED IS PROFIT, NOT INTEREST.

[4] FROM ZUBAYDAH, 35, DETROIT, USA ON 24 JULY 2003

ASSALAMU ALAIKUM. BLESS YOU, DR AZAM! I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR SITE. MOST MUSLIMS DON’T TALK ABOUT DREAMS AS THEY THINK THEY ARE UNSCIENTIFIC. I BELIEVE DREAMS ARE A LIVING LEGACY WHICH CONNECT ORDINARY PEOPLE TO ALLAH’S MERCY. I HAVE BEEN A PART OF TABLIGH SINCE I WAS NINETEEN AND HAVE BEEN A MUSLIM ALL MY LIFE. THIS IS A REALLY GREAT SITE ON ISLAM AND I HOPE THAT YOU GET 7,000,000 BLESSINGS FOR EACH SECOND THAT YOUR SITE IS ON THE WEB! AMEEN. I WANTED TO KNOW WHERE TO SEND CHARITY TO YOUR ORGANISATION SO YOU CAN PRAY FOR MY MOTHER WHO IS ILL. IN THE ‘DREAMS OF REWARD IN PARADISE’ PAPER ON YOUR SITE YOU MENTION AN ADDRESS IN INDIA. IS THERE ONE IN THE UK TOO WHERE I CAN SEND MY MONEY?

REPLY FROM DR AZAM TO ZUBAYDAH ON 24 JULY 2003

WA LAIKUM SALAM, ZUBAYDAH. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WONDERFUL, ENCOURAGING COMMENTS ON MY SITE. IT IS THE VALUABLE SUPPORT OF PEOPLE SUCH AS YOU THAT IS SUCH A GREAT HELP TO ME IN MY INTENSIVE ISLAMIC WORK. I REGRET TO HEAR OF YOUR MOTHER’S ILLNESS. MY OWN PARENTS HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY ILL MANY TIMES AND I KNOW WELL THE HEART-SINKING FEELING OF EXTREME STRESS AND WORRY THAT RESULTS. THE ADDRESS I MENTIONED IN INDIA IS NOT MY ORGANISATION; IF FACT, I DO NOT HAVE AN ORGANISATION AS SUCH. THOUGH I AM IN CONTACT WITH VARIOUS INSTITUTIONS, ORGANISATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS IN THE COURSE OF MY WORK, I TEND TO WORK ON A SOLITARY BASIS. WHY DON’T YOU SEND THE MONEY TO INDIA WHERE IT IS DESPERATELY NEEDED? I WILL PRAY FOR YOUR MOTHER WITHOUT ANY FINANCIAL REIMBURSEMENT. THE HOLY PEOPLE IN INDIA NEED FUNDS SO THAT THEY CAN FEED THE DESTITUTES, NEEDY ETC.

5] FROM LADYCHURAILZ, 1 AUGUST 2003

CONGRATULATIONS. [IN MY PAPER ‘DREAMS OF REWARD IN PARADISE’ –ON THIS SITE- I RELATE A DREAM IN WHICH I WAS GIVEN THE MESSAGE THAT IT IS BETTER TO SEE A HOURI [HEAVENLY MAIDEN] THAN A CHURAIL [LADY DEMON]. THIS MESSAGE IS A PRANK FROM SOME MUSLIM GIRLS PRETENDING TO BE CHURAILZ AND CONGRATULATING ME ON MY WEBSITE OR DREAMS!]

FROM DR AZAM TO LADYCHURAILZ ON 1 AUGUST 2003

THANK YOU FOR CONGRATULATING ME, LADYCHURAILZ! HAVE YOU GOT ANY IN-DEPTH COMMENTS TO SUPPLY FOR MY WEBSITE? [THEY DID NOT REPLY, SO THEY MIGHT HAVE BECOME REALLY EVIL {THEIR TRUE NATURE!} AFTER READING MY RESPONSE!]

[6] FROM SONIA, 16, MANCHESTER, UK ON 14 MAY 2004

I AM STUDYING MY ‘A’ LEVELS AT COLLEGE. I DON’T WANT YOU TO THINK WRONG OF ME. I HAVE MADE MANY MISTAKES BUT I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP. I HAVE A BOYFRIEND WHOM I HAVE BEEN WITH FOR SOME TIME NOW. I KNOW IT’S AGAINST ISLAM, BUT I REALLY LOVE HIM AND HOPE TO MARRY HIM SOON. I AM TELLING YOU THIS BECAUSE I HAVE ALSO BEEN HAVING DREAMS THAT MY DAD IS HOLDING A GUN TO MY HEAD BECAUSE OF SOMETHING I HAVE DONE, NOT ONCE, BUT A FEW TIMES NOW. I BELIEVE THAT THERE MUST BE A STRONG LINK BETWEEN THESE DREAMS AND REALITY. PLEASE CAN YOU GIVE ME YOUR OPINION ON THIS AS IT WILL MEAN A LOT TO ME. I SHALL WAIT FOR YOUR REPLY AND HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON. MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU. KHUDA HAFIZ.

 

REPLY FROM DR AZAM TO SONIA ON 15 MAY 2004


WA LAIKUM SALAM, SONIA. I F I TOLD YOU THAT YOU WERE THE TYPE OF PERSON TO CHEAT IN EXAMS, YOU WOULD DENY IT AT ONCE! YOU WOULD SAY THAT YOUR CHARACTER IS OF SUCH A HIGH AND HONEST STANDARD THAT IT WOULD NOT ALLOW YOU TO CHEAT!

HOW, THEN CAN YOU CHEAT YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER? BY HAVING A BOYFRIEND AND DOING THINGS WITH HIM, YOU BETRAY YOUR OWN PARENTS! THEY TRUST YOU BUT YOU DO TERRIBLE THINGS OF WHICH THEY HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE. NOT TO MENTION THE ANGER OF ALLAH! THIS IS WHY YOU ARE HAVING NIGHTMARES!

I HAVE TO BE VERY HONEST WITH YOU. EITHER GET MARRIED TO YOUR ‘BOYFRIEND’ WITH YOUR PARENTS’ CONSENT [AND THERE SHOULD BE NO FURTHER PHYSICAL CONTACT UNTIL YOU TWO BECOME HUSBAND AND WIFE] OR WAIT FOR YOUR MARRIAGE UNTIL YOUR PARENTS ARRANGE IT. YOU MUST REPENT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE FOR NOW.

[7] FROM MOHAMMED OMAR ON 16 NOVEMBER 2003


ASSALAMU ALAIKUM, MAULANA SAHIB! I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT SOME DREAMS. I GET THESE DREAMS WHERE I FEEL I’M ATTACKED BY JINNS. I FEEL REALLY, REALLY, REALLY HEAVY, AND I CAN’T EVEN MOVE AND TRY TO ESCAPE! PLEASE HELP ME! WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN? CAN I RECITE SOMETHING BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP? PLEASE REPLY BACK TO ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

REPLY FROM DR AZAM TO OMAR ON 17 NOVEMBER 2003

WA LAIKUM SALAM, OMAR. READ THIS PRAYER TWENTY-ONE TIMES BEFORE YOU GO TO SLEEP:

 
ALLAHUMMA BARAKLI FIL MAUTI WA FEE MAA BA’DAL MAUT

O ALLAH! BLESS ME WHEN I DIE AND BLESS ME IN THE LIFE AFTER DEATH!

 

Çááåã ÈÇÑß áí Ýí ÇáãæÊ æ Ýí ãÇ ÈÚÏ ÇáãæÊ
INSHA’ALLAH, YOUR PROBLEM SHALL GO AWAY!.
