Syed Mawdoodi in his first address made it clear, “All the Muslim Parties so far either stand for one aspect of Islam or stress just another one. In other cases, they have mundane programmes to fulfill and they have been formed like other secular Parties, as such they cannot be said to be Islamic Parties in the true sense of the word.

And they have extended their memberships rather generously to every Tom, Dick and Harry without any qualification whatsoever, so result is that not only the workers but their leaders too, are devoid of any character. Therefore, such parties have no claim to lead. That is why, they have not attracted, the non-Muslims, on the contrary, they have rather prevented the non-Muslims from embracing Islam.


Today we have founded the party that stands for complete Islam and we have adopted the procedure, the Prophet himself had practiced, moreover, our regulations, and rules are such, which encourage only the pious Muslims who at least know the meaning and the demands of the first declaration of a Muslim, and consciously pledge to follow it.

Jama’at demands from its members the sincere profession and strict practice of minimum Islamic demands. And this is the solitary qualification to retain the membership of Jama’at. And our Jama’at will not confine itself to racial Muslims only, but will also try to reach out to non Muslims and other noble souls, all over the globe. Then Syed Mawdoodi gave the reason for the adopting of Jama’at’s name i.e. Jama’at-e-Islami. He said since faith, manifesto, system, and procedure are more or less the same as has been characteristic of Islam. Hence, Islami was a must suffix and since it moves along the path shown by Islam so it cannot be anything but Islamic Movement. ‘Jama’at’ Syed Mawdoodi, said, “is an all encircling movement as such its task is uphill and so it needs man power to change the whole system of this world meaning thereby, to change morality, civilization, politics, culture, economics and society. So that God willed system prevails everywhere.”


The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law).

Al'Quraan Surah Noor

Prophet Mohammad PBUH

Narrated: Abu Huraira (R.A) that a man said to the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam: "Advise me! "The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Do not become angry and furious." The man asked (the same) again and again, and the Prophet said in each case, "Do not become angry and furious." [Al-Bukhari; Vol. 8 No. 137]
