In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Beneficent ! PREAMBLE
The Objective of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is establishment of the DEEN (the divinely ordained way of life known as Islam). The Jamaat has been striving to establish Islam in its totality, in all aspects of human life – individual as well as collective – related to the inner self as well as the external world.
Islam ensures salvation and success of human beings. With this guidance alone a person can save himself from the displeasure and punishment of Allah, and seek His pleasure and blessings in the Hereafter.
Islam delivers man from the veneration of all but Allah as well as from the slavery of his fellow beings, and invites him to accept the worship of One God. This DEEN reforms individuals – both their inward and outward selves, and solves all their problems in the best manner. It also provides the human society with the best means for equity and justice, welfare and reform, and progress and prosperity irrespective of race or colour, region or language.
The Jamaat is of firm conviction that Islam alone offers the best and most suitable solution to the problems our country is faced with, including the crises of thought and action our fellow countrymen are passing through in their moral, social, economic and political spheres of life. The Jamaat is striving for the establishment of this Islam in the country.
For the attainment of its Objectives, the Jamaat stands firmly committed to the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Under their guidance, the Jamaat employs ethical, constructive, peaceful, democratic and constitutional means, and refrains from all such activities which are opposed to truth and honesty, or are likely to provoke communal hatred, class conflict or social disorder.
The Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is a movement. It is necessary for its growth and advancement to take stock of the present circumstances in which it is striving for the attainment of its Objective viz. establishment of the Deen, and to keep them in view while formulating its strategy and priorities.
One aspect of these circumstances is related to the moral and prevailing condition of the Muslims. In the present age the Muslim community is ignorant of its true status. It considers itself, like other communities, just a community, and uses the same criteria while formulating its priorities as is the practice of other communities. Its divinely enjoined duty is to invite the human beings towards the true religion and to disseminate as well as implement the teachings of Islam. But, due to ignorance of its position, the community, consciously or unconsciously, has been drifting away from the moral teachings of Islam in its individual and collective life, and appears to be negligent of Islamic principles, teachings and norms. As a result of this moral degeneration, it has been losing the zeal and courage required for the dissemination, propagation and establishment of the Deen. To rouse the consciousness of its being Khair-e-Ummah and to restore to it its lost capability is a very important part of the Jamaat’s programme.
The second aspect of the present condition of the Muslims is related to their general life. The status quo of their attachment to the Deen, their interest in Ibadah, their adherence to the Islamic teachings in family life, their trust and honesty, integrity and probity, are in need of immediate attention and reformation. Tainted mutual relations, increasing waywardness and depression in youth, indifference to Islamic norms and imitation of Western culture, ignorance of rights of women and violation of those rights, extravagance in functions, tendency of adopting innovations (bidaat) and polytheistic customs, increasing unemployment – all these weaknesses are such as can tarnish the image of Islam and Muslims, and, it is feared, they can also deprive them of succour from Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.
The third important aspect of the life of the Muslim community in India is its general illiteracy and educational backwardness. After Independence of the country the community has fallen victim to economic backwardness. Taking advantage of the internal weaknesses of the community, certain national and international forces have turned hostile to its existence, its cultural identity, its cultural and religious symbols, and its political and economic progress. In order to hold the Muslims responsible for the so-called obscurities of the past and to achieve certain heinous ends they are campaigning to dub them as extremists and terrorists and thus trying either to obliterate the system of Madrasas and Jamias or to make them part of the secular system of education at the cost of their Islamic characteristics.
It is imperative for the Jamaat to adopt proper and effective measures in order to retain the cultural and religious identity of the Muslims and to remove their multifarious weaknesses.
At present our country is passing through a very critical period. At this hour of crisis it is not clear to our political leaders and intellectuals as to whither they should lead the country and society. Owing to the aims and objectives not being clear to them, they are imitating rather inadvertently the developed and dominant nations of the world. They fan caste conflicts and communal hatred to stay in power. This results in increasing strife and chaos. Its natural corollary is that the trends of materialism and consumerism are advancing at a dangerously rapid pace. The values of individual and collective ethics and philanthropy are being violated. Family system is disintegrating. While, on the other hand, there is marked increase in poverty, hunger and diseases. Due to criminal negligence of the government, deprivation of weaker sections is on the increase.
This aimlessness and crisis is adversely affecting the rights of Indian Muslims and their positive role in the society, which is becoming an obstruction in the way of Islamic Dawah. Amelioration of this situation requires sustained, positive and comprehensive efforts.
At the international level, humanity is passing through a severe crisis. The only self-styled superpower, intoxicated by power, has not only violated the borders of independent countries but also massacred lacs of human beings. It proves its hard-heartedness and inhumanity. It has trampled upon all the invaluable assets of democratic values, principles of morality and honesty and freedom of thought. This power has especially targeted Muslim countries. Its objectives include not only attaining political and military supremacy but also to solely occupy oil resources and to crush the Islamic civilization which is quite distinct and distinguished from its own. To counter the dangerous consequences resulting from this scenario, the Muslim community and the Islamic Movement need to chalk out a long-term plan.
Besides this motive of political and military supremacy, the objectives of the superpower and its allies also include revival of capitalistic system of economy, financial and economic dominance, and imposition of interest based capitalism. If the West succeeds in achieving these ends, hunger, starvation, poverty and disease shall become the destiny of the Third World.
Common people are expressing their disgust and annoyance against this situation. Fortunately a considerable number of justice-loving intellectuals of the world are disgusted with this state of affairs. But they do not have any other social and economic system which can give a constructive turn to this dissatisfaction and simultaneously guarantee both economic development and equity and justice.
In this scenario, only Islam can present an effective and just social and economic system which can face the ogre of capitalism and also bless the common man with prosperity and economic progress. The Jamaat-e-Islami Hind will introduce the Islamic social and economic system as a viable alternative and simultaneously take steps for its implementation.
In this perspective, the Jamaat has drawn up its Policy and Programme for the next four-year term, and it prays to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala to bless it with His guidance and give it zeal and enthusiasm and required resources and man power to make progress on all important fronts. Aameen!
