Maulana Haq Nawaz
Jhangvi Shaheed (r.t.a)
At 8:00 pm on
Thursday night, 26 Rajab 1410 A.H., conforming to the 22 February
1990, the stalwart and founder of "Sipah-e-Sahabah (r.a)",
the Vice President of Jamiat-ul-Ulama Punjab, Principal of Jamia
Mehmoodia, member of the United Ulama Council and Sunni Ulama Front,
mouthpiece and orator of the Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhu), Hazrat
Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi (Rahmatullah Alaye) was martyred.
Allah do We belong to Him is our return".
Haq Nawaz Jhangvi was born in 1954 in the town of Jhang. After
completing his primary education in Arabic and Theology, he left for
Multan where he studied in the renowned Islamic University,
Khair-ul-Madaris. He qualified as an Islamic Scholar/Alim in 1972
from this university at the tender age of 19. After which he once
more returned to his home town, Jhang.
his then feeble shoulders with the arduous task of patronizing that
enviable organization, "Sipah-e-Sahabah (r.a)" and like a
true soldier, he used all his resources for the dignity and honor
of the Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhu).
previously many Ulama had directed their resources to this worthy
cause, their efforts are pale in comparison to the enviable
dedication of Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi. Maulana had breathed new
life into the Sipah-e-Sahabah (r.a) and fought tooth and nail
against the Shias, till alas, he was martyred this holy cause.
that we are so sensitive regarding the dignity and honor of our near
and dear ones, but when derogatory remarks are passed regarding Nabi
Sallallaho alaihe wasallam, his family members and the fruits of his
23 years labor and toil. i.e. the Sahabah-e-Karam (Radiallahu Anhu),
we cannot care less.
politically and socially Shia-orientated and it has passed through
Shia leadership for several decades, but how true is the saying:
Firaun (Pharaoh) will meet his Moosa".
created a Moosa in this very town, to defeat the Shiites Fiaruns.
Such was the courage and bravery of this Moosa, that he had struck
thunderous blows at the foundation of the currents of history in an
Since the early
centuries, the Ulama had declared the Shias are non-Muslims. Ulama
such as Ibn Taimiyah, and more recently Shah Waliullah (Rahmatullah
alaihe) had authored books clearly indicating that the Shia were
Kuffar, but Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi's style was unique. He had
boldly publicized these sentiments and declared the Shia to be the
worst brand of Kuffar. He held discourse for all people in which he
propagated the belief of the Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jama'at.
Maulana made his
presence known and had struck fear in the marrow of the bones of the
Shia leader. The Shias on the other hand realized the threat Maulana
posed and consequently they conspired against him. In this regard
Maulana had said:
Shias have become successful in receiving support from many
countries and they will obliterate me from their path at any
lines were written in the editorial of the Rajab 1410 A.H. issue of
Ihqaq-al-Haq, a Shia journal.
"An organ of
the Deobandi body of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat, the Sipah-e-Sahabah (r.a),
have been on a full scale attack against the Shias. Apparently the
leader of this group is a person by the name of Haq Nawaz. We
asked the secretary general of Jamiat-ul-Ulama Pakistan,
it the object of the Shari'ah which you wish to institute in
Pakistan to cause dispute and strife and raise slogans that the Shia
are Kuffar as a prominent member of your Jamiat.
Nawaz, is doing?"
At the point it
is interesting to note that when the Shias speak in vulgar and
derogatory tones regarding the Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhu), then they
do not consider it to be a cause of a dispute and stifle, but when a
lover fights for the respect and dignity of his beloved, then not
only is he verbally abused, but murdered too.
The oppression of
the Shias upon the Muslims is no secret. Their portraying themselves
to be oppressed and abused and receiving the sympathy of unwary
persons and always been their showed tactics. Never should they
think for a moment that their play will be effective in annihilating
the true Muslims, the Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jama'at. Islam did not sway
by the oppression of the Fatimads of Egypt nor by the movements of
Ibn Saba and Hassan bin Saba, and nor will it be defeated by the
The blood of
Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi Shaheed (r.t.a) will not be forgotten for
this cause. It is not farfetched that Allah may put an end to this
group as He had terminally crippled the Qadyani's by the death of
Maulana Shamsuddin Shaheed (r.t.a).

Jhangvi was on his way for Isha Salat when unknown terrorist fired
six shots in their chest. They passed away immediately.
Allah grant him with Heaven. Ameen.
Allah Ta'ala is
the guardian of Islam and He knows how to protect Islam. If he can
use birds to annihilate his enemy, why then can He not protect His
religion with one of His feeble servants.
