Moadoodi's Criticism on Islam

Information taken from:
by: Allama Arshadul Qaderi.
Maktaba Jaame Noor, Delhi.

All quotes are with references with page numbers. You can buy these books by Moadoodi from India or Pakistan.

According to Moadoodi, Sun Worshipers, Stone Worshipers etc. are on the right path too:
Moadoodi, “Insaan (Human) believes in Khuda (Allah) or not, does Sajdah to Khuda or stone, worships Khuda or non-Khuda, but if he/she is following the rules of nature and live by those rules then indeed he/she without knowledge and without intention is doing Tasbeeh of Khuda. Worshiping HIM.(Allah).”
(Tafheemat, Part 1 Page 43)

What happed to Wehdaniyat (Allah Tala’s ones, La ilaaha illal lah) and ONLY Allah’s worthiness of worship? According to Quran and Ahadith any one worships other then Allah Tala is Kafir but to Moadoodi they are on the right path. Here clearly Moadoodi is rejecting Allah and Rasool’s (Peace be Upon Him) orders.

Criticism on Quran and Allah Tala’s Orders:
Moadoodi, “Where the quality of social behavior is so low that illegal (islamically illegal) relationships (between men and women) are not considered wrong. To impose the Sharai (Islamic Law) punishment of Zina and Qazaf there, is indeed a Zulm (Torment)”
(Tafheemat, Part 2 Page 281)

Who ever rejects one Ayat of Quran is definitely not a Muslim. Here Moadoodi has rejected the Quran's punishment on Zina. The Quran is The Word Of Allah Tala. Therefore Moadoodi has a problem with Allah Tala’s prescribed punishments. He thinks he knows what’s better for people and what’s right and what’s wrong. More then Allah Tala (Naoozubillah).

According to him it’s not a must to believe in Prophet Mohammad Peace Be Upon Him:
Moadoodi, “Those people who, due to ignorance and illiteracy, do not believe in the truthfulness of Rasoole Arabi (peace be upon him) but believe in the previous prophets and live peacefully will get as much part of Allah’s Rehmat (Blessings) as their punishment will be reduced.”
(Tafheemat, Part 1 Page 168)

Rejection of Kalaima here from Moadoodi. How can one be blessed if he/she does not believe on the second part of Kalaima (Mohamamdur Rasool Allah) Another example of Modoodi’s rejection of Allah and Rasool’s (Peace be upon him) teachings and rejection of a must Islamic belief.

Criticism on Prophet Peace Be Upon Him:
Moadoodi, “The reason Nabi Sallal Laho Alaihi Wasallam achieved the great success in Arab was simply for amazing recruits YOU (peace be upon him) had found. If HE (peace be upon him) had surrounded by weak, coward, untrustworthy and ill willed people then would HE (peace be upon him) have achieved the same results”
(Tehreeke Islami ki Ikhlaqi Bunyadain, Page 17)

What How about Allah Tala’s assistance? How about our beloved Prophet Peace be upon Him’s Prophetical abilities? In other words the abilities of the people who became Mo’min and none of the one who made them Mo’min was the cause of success.

Criticism on Sunnah:
Moadoodi, “To make, the routine domestic tasks YOU (peace be upon him) performed out of habit, Sunnah and ask all the humans of the world to follow them. Allah and Rasool (peace be upon him) never never intended that. This is an addition in religion.
I believe that, to acknowledge these things as Sunnah and then insist to follow them is a harsh Bid’ah and a dangerous addition. This has showed bad results and might produce bad results in future too.”

(Rasaail O Masaail, Part 2 Page 300, with reference of Magazine “Mansab”, Risalat addition)

No Sunnat in a Muslim’s life? Following Sunnat is Bid’ah? Allah and Rasool (Peace be upon him) never intended that? Has Modoodi ever read Quran and Ahadith Oh sorry this guy’s Quran translation (which is full of errors) is in most of the houses of the world, so he must have. I wonder should people carry on with his Quranic work Or throw those copies in the ocean? Dear Muslims save your Imaan. Please.

Moadoodi’s His denial of Ahadees:
Moadoodi, “The teachings of Quran and Sunnate Rasool are a must for all but not from the old collection of Tafseer and Ahadis.”
(Tanqihaat, Page 114)

Hmm, no old collection of Ahadis? How would it be possible unless we get a new Rasool? Or a new Rasool every few years to keep the Ahadith fresh?

Moadoodi’s constitution for Jamat-e-Islami’s membership:
Moadoodi, “No one would be added as a member in Jamat on the conception that he was born in a Muslim’s home, his name is like Muslims then he must be a Muslim.
Similarly if some one recites the words of Kalaima Tayyaba only with his tongue without understanding it’s meaning, that person won’t be able to join Jamat”

(Dastoor Jamate Islami, Page 26)

If to born in a Muslim home, to have a Muslim name, to recite Kalema, are not enough to accept any one as a Muslim then what are are the right criteria?
Unless we witness the Kufriyat from that person like we have been witnessing from Moadoodi we have to accept them as Muslims according to Quranic and Ahadith teachings. If Quran and Hadis teaches us that, then who is Moadoodi to deny those Laws of Shariat?

These are the few are quoted here but the list goes on and on. What a fraud he was.

All of the above can be varified by buying and reading those books. It's an apeal to all muslims please do not read his tafseer or translation of Quran. It has many critical errors as he goes on with his mind and what he believes instead of what actual meaning should come out of Quran. Allah tala save us all from his fitna, Ameen.
