Bangladesh Jamaat e Islami

 

A perfect plan of knowledge of Islamic studies. 

A strong association for the improvement of character. 

A pragmatic program for public welfare and social reform. 

A legitimate movement for the establishment of public welfare oriented ideal state and government. 

 

Duty of Eqamat e Deen

Allah said in clear language in three chapters of the holy Quran indicating the fact why He sent His Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to the world:  

 

“It is He Who hath sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion.” (sura at tawba-33, sura al fatah-28, sura as saff-9)

 

Rasul (SAW) discharged this duty by establishing The Deen of Allah. He proved that Islam is the only path of peace in the earth by enforcing the law of Allah in all spheres of individual, family, society, state, law, administration, judiciary and commerce. So, to perform the duty of establishing Islam is very important task. Sahaba e kiram (companions of prophet) also performed this duty with Muhammad (SAW). We all should discharge this duty properly as a Muslim. Satisfaction of Allah can never be possible by neglecting this duty. 

 

Importance of united life

It was not possible even for a prophet to accomplish this duty individually. So, prophets executed a movement making them united who came under the shade of faith. It is tough to lead life as a complete Muslim in a society where Islam is not in force. And, the task of establishing the Deen of Allah is in no way possible without being united. 

Prophet (SAW) said, a Muslim separated from organization is captured by Satan as a sheep separated from herd is captured by wolf. So, life with an organization is an inevitable demand of Iman (faith). 

 

What kind of party is Jamaat- e - Islami? 

Jamaat e Islami is not a conventional religious, political, social or cultural party only. Jamaat performs as a spiritual party as spiritual life is important in Islam. Jamaat performs in political arena because Islamic law can’t be implemented without political force. Jamaat concentrates upon social service and social reform as strong emphasis has been given on social service and social reform in Islam. In this sense, Jamaat- e- Islami is a complete Islamic movement. 

 

Fundamental (aqida) belief of Jamaat 

• Allah is only Rob, lawgiver and commander of mankind

• Only Quran and sunnah are complete code of life for human being

• Only Muhammad (SAW) is the ideal leader to be followed in all spheres of life

• The movement of establishing Islam is the only objective of  life of  a mumin

• Satisfaction of Allah and salvation in eternal life (Akhirat) are the demand of life of a mumin (believer) 

 

Organization of Jamaat e Islami 

Bangladesh Jamaat e Islami is producing capable people through the organization because it wants to establish deen Islam. People fit for this great task are to be gathered to establish Islamic society, state and government. These people will not come from space or can’t be imported from abroad. Jamaat e Islami is making capable people from amongst the people of Bangladesh as the prophet (SAW) gathered people by invitation and organization. 

 

Three points of Dawat (invitation) of Jamaat 

It is known from Quran and Hadith that prophets (AS) invited people in the manner that: 

"O my people! worship Allah! ye have no other God but Him.” [Quran, sura al araf : 50, 61, 84]

They who accepted this Dawat, all entered Islam declaring that: 

LA ILAHA ILLALLAHU MUHAMMADUR RASULULLAH”

(There is no God but Allah and Muhammad (SAW) is His messenger)

 

Jamaat e Islami has presented this declaration of kalmia e taiyaba as 3 points of dawat: 

1. Admit Allahu Subhanau Ta’la as sole Ilah (absolute commander) and prophet Muhammad (SAW) as the ideal leader to get peace in the world and attain salvation  in akhirat (hereafter);

2. If you have undoubtedly admitted it, remove the thoughts, deeds and practices contrary to Islam from your practical life and firmly decide not to obey anyone opposed to Allah and His Rasul (SAW);

3. Being united if you want to lead life as a pure Muslim according to two above principles; remove dishonest people from the leadership and offer leadership for the people who are believer, God-fearing, honest and efficient.

 

Four points programs of Jamaat: 

 

1. Work of purification of thought and reconstruction through Dawat: Jamaat is widening the thoughts of people by upholding the correct knowledge of Quran and Sunnah through convincing argument and also awakening their courage and attitude to follow Islam and to enforce it. 

 

2. The work of organizing and training: Jamaat is building people eligible to establish Islamic society through appropriate training and by making the people well organized those who are interested in the movement of establishing Islam. 

 

3. The work of social reform and service: Jamaat is developing and patronizing the society through the work of social purification, morale reconstruction and social services on the basis of Islamic values. 

 

4. The work of government reformation: 

Jamaat is striving democratically to enforce God-fearing, honest and efficient leadership in all spheres of ruling system instead of inefficient and dishonest leadership

 

 

Working policy of Jamaat e Islami: 

• Working policy for building manpower

Islamic movement is the only means to create strong belief and character appropriate for Islamic society. Efficient manpower is built by the movement against vested political, economical, social and religious interests. Therefore, Jamaat is building manpower in this process. Dedicated and philanthropic workers are made in this process. 

• Working policy for forming government

Work of nation-building and social change can’t be executed through craze, terrorism and disorder. So, Jamaat wants to take responsibility of managing government in a systemic and democratic way. Islamic ideology is not the matter to impose on the people forcefully. The true victory of Islam is possible only with the popular support. 

 

Contribution of Jamaat e Islami

• Wide expansion of Islamic literature in Bengali language 

• Significant contribution to play a positive role in national politics and to create strong Islamic practice in political arena. 

• Creating an environment to serve nation and people unitedly by increasing capability of the people educated both in Madrahsa and general background. 

• Creating a group of sincere, honest and efficient manpower and leaving examples of honesty and transparency.  

 

The condition for victory of Islam

Allah Ta’ala doesn’t implement Islam by directly driving force. Allah in this venture helps them those who try to perform the duty of khilafah. He confers the power upon them if the efficient manpower for establishing His deen on the earth of Allah is prepared. [Al Quran, sura an-nur : 55] 

 

Do you want the victory of Islam? 

Surely you want to see the victory of Deen of Allah. If so, come and be associated with Jamaat. Decorate yourself with Iman (faith), ilm (knowledge), akhlaq (virtues) and amal (good deed). The working policy which Jamaat in this purpose has adopted will help you to go forward. 

 

To be associated with Jamaat: 

• Firstly fill up the form of associate member 

• Regularly attend in weekly meeting for attaining Islamic knowledge and character

• Attentively read tafsir (explanation) of Quran and Hadith, Islamic literature and news papers. 

• Practice according to what knowledge you have gained and take firm decision not to do anything against your conscience. 

• Be the member of Jamaat to perform the duty of deen efficiently.

An Introduction To Bangladesh Jamaate Islami

 

Foreword

Man is a wonderful combination of both body and soul. His progress towards perfection demands that attention should be paid to both these aspects of his existence. 

Islam is the only complete code of life revealed by Allah. This code encompasses the whole gamut of human life. It does not only prescribe beliefs but also the norms of behaviour. Its guidance covers all spheres of human activities, both spiritual and material. The Jamaate Islami aims at bringing about changes in all phases and spheres of human activities on the basis of the guidance revealed by Allah and exemplified by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
 

The Call

The Jamaate Islami appeals to mankind in general and to the muslims in particular to respond to a 3 point call derived from the clarion call of all messengers of Allah mentioned in the Quran. `O people, submit to Allah, There is no other Lord for you except Him.’

The Jamaate Islami interprets this universal and eternal call in the following three points : 

 If you desire peace in this life and aspire salvation after death, accept Allah as the only sovereign Lord and the messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him) as your only leader in all aspects of your life.

 If you claim to have accepted this call, you must shun all thoughts, actions and habits repugnant to your faith and declare not to obey anybody against Allah and His messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him).

 If you are determined to implement these two policies in your life, you must make collective efforts to replace dishonest and inefficient leaders by honest and efficient ones.

 

The Programme

The Jamaate Islami wants to bring about a total change in society. A permanent and beneficial change needs the thoughts of the people to be guided to the right direction. People of similar thinking have to be organised and trained up as efficient leaders and able activists.

They are to be fully acquainted with the social problems and equipped with abilities to solve those problems with the spirit of selfless service to the people. If Allah is pleased to grant an opportunity, the Jamaate Islami, backed by the support of the people, shall form government and shall turn the country into a welfare state in the light of the Quran and the Sunnah. With this end in view, the Jamaate Islami has chalked out a 4-point programme.

 

(1) Purification and Reconstruction of Thoughts : 

To propagate Islam and to call the people to the way of Allah, to purify and reconstruct the thoughts of the people on the basis of the Quran and the Sunnah, to conduct a movement for building up real Islamic thought in all sections of the people and to make them feel the necessity to follow Islam in every sphere of life.

(2) Organisation and Training :

To find out and organise Islam-loving conscious and honest people and those intending to be honest, to train them up through practical activities suitable to develop them as true servants of Allah and efficient activists for the cause of Islam and humanity and to build up a group of activists for providing the society with honest leadership at all levels.

(3)Social Service and Social Reform :

To strive to uplift the conditions of the people and the country through extensive social service and social welfare activities, to serve the suffering humanity, to introduce Islamic culture and reconstruct human character on the basis of Islamic values. And to organise people to resist anti-social activities through peaceful means.

(4)Reforming the Government and Administration :

To advise the government in the light of Islam regarding internal administration, foreign policy, laws and regulations, moral and worldly development of the people, education system, the proper upliftment of the country and to replace dishonest and inefficient people at all levels of public services by honest and efficient persons.

The Process of Work
 

 To actualize the first point of the programme the activists of the Jamaate Islami establish personal contact with people belonging to all walks of life, explain different aspects of Islam and urge upon them to read Islamic literature.

The Jamaate Islami holds public meetings in cities, at townships and rural areas in order to impart the message of the Quran and the Sunnah.
 

 To actualize the second point of the programme the Jamaate Islami enrols those who respond to its call, as Associate Members and train them through its regular activities. For their personal development, they are motivated to study the Quran, the Hadith and other Islamic literature. They are required to say their daily prayers in congregation. They are asked to recruit new Associate Members through personal contact. They are required to submit a report of their activities at regular intervals.
 

 To actualize the third point of the programme the Jamaate Islami tries to ameliorate the sufferings of the poor and the destitute by extending help to them both in cash and kind. Whenever any natural calamity befalls the people the Jamaate Islami organises relief operations and tries to rehabilitate the victims as far as possible. The Jamaate Islami tries to mobilise public opinion, in different ways, against all sorts of anti-social and anti-Islamic activities.
 

 To actualize the fourth point of the programme the Jamaate Islami tries to inspire the people to strengthen the spirit of independence which is needed for the survival of the country. 

In the form of political resolutions and statements the Jamaate Islami advises the government on every national issue and problem. The Jamaate Islami criticises the wrong steps taken and wrong policies adopted by the government and suggests that it considers to be correct.

The Jamaate Islami hopes that a time must come when people shall elect Islamic leaders to the parliament in a majority paving the way for the formation of an Islamic government.
 

The Characteristics

After the emergence of Bangladeshi as an independent state in 1971 all political parties, professing Islam, were banned. The 5th amendment brought to the constitution of Bangladesh in 1977 removed the legal bar for the formation of an Islamic political party.

Through a convention held in the precincts of Eden Hotel in Dhaka from 25th to 27th May, 1979 the Jamaate Islami emerged as an Islamic political movement.

taking office, the govenemtn didn’t meet any of the pledges, given to the people before the elections, rather weakened the armed force through the 2009 BDR carnage that 

 

brutally killed 57 army officers.

 

The government signed different secret anti-state deals with India giving corridor in the name of transit to India; BSF everyday was killing the innocent and unarmed 

 

Bangladeshi citizens like bird; India took initiative to construct Tipaimukh dam that would make the eastern part of the country desert but the government assisting India in 

 

this connection instead of protest, they said.

 

The sovereignty and independence, acquired at the cost of blood, is now in threat; the government failed to keep the essentials’ price at tolerable level, production is facing 

 

hindrance due to crises of gas and electricity but the government was busy in torturing and oppressing the opposition parties instead of taking initiative to solve the 

 

national problems.

 

 

To emancipate the people from the clutches of the tyrannical government and release the detained opposition leaders and activists, they urged the people and party activists to 

 

largely participate in the road march and make it a success.
