A Question for the Supporters of Yazid
A question for the supporters of Yazid
Those people who support Yazid & claim that he participated in the siege of Constantinople & is therefore forgiven, even when the facts have been brought out can they bring forth any proof from the Quran or the Sunnah? Even if he had participated, will all his later sins be forgiven & Almighty-Allah will not take him to account for them?
There are other acts also for which forgiveness has being declared. There is a Hadith in Sunan Ibn Majah, Babi Majaa fil Ghusl, Page No. 105:
Translation: Whoever washes a dead body, enshrouds it, perfumes it, carries the bier, offers its Salat Ul Janazah, & does not reveal if he sees anything in the dead body, that person is as free of sins on that day as if his mother gave birth to him on that day.
In the same way, there is a Hadith about Hajj:
Translation: Hadhrath Abu Huraira (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) relates: I heard The Holy-Prophet (Peace be upon Him) say: Whoever performs a Hajj, uttered no obscenities, did nothing bad, he will return that day in such a state as if his mother has given birth to him. Sahih Bukhari,
Volume. 1, Page No. 206
There is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrath Abu Huraira (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Peace Be upon Him) said: Whoever bears the responsibility of an orphan or makes someone responsible for the orphan, I (i.e. the Holy Prophet (Peace Be upon Him)) & that person will be like 2 fingers (i.e. so close), Imaam Malik (May Almighty-Allah shower His mercy on him) gestured with the first & the middle finger.
There are many Hadith in which glad tidings of forgiveness have been given.
Does the forgiveness mentioned in the above Hadith & in other Hadith mean that a person after performing the above acts can leave Obligatory Salat, drink wine, steal, persecute somebody, hurt somebody, murder somebody, even then because of the past virtuous acts, all his later sins will be forgiven? No, what it means is that because of the virtuous acts, the earlier sins are forgiven & not the later sins. Otherwise, it should be said that if any person performs a Hajj, washes a dead body, or bears the responsibility of an orphan, that person can leave Salat, drink wine, steal, persecute somebody, hurt & murder somebody but these sins will not affect him, only because that person has performed some virtuous acts. No sane person will accept that. This is nothing but a castle in the air. If this is accepted as correct, then the society cannot be kept free of oppression.
