REASONS FOR ALLÁH'S ANGER AND WAYS FOR ITS REMEDY
This booklet, REASONS FOR ALLAH’S ANGER AND WAYS FOR ITS
REMEDY, written by the Grand Muftí of Gujerat, India, Hadhrat
Shaikh Muftí ’Abdur-Rahím Lájpurí Sáhib* , was first
published in England in 1999 by Ashraf Publications.
It was translated from the Urdú kitáb, “Wabál-e-Iláhí Ke Asbáb
Aur Unká Iláj”, by Sayed Ilyás Pasha M.A. It was subsequently
re-printed in South Africa.
By the year 1999, the suffering of Muslims had already been
witnessed in places like Palestine, Kashmír, Bosnia, Chechnya
and Afghanistan. The Muslims in India had also been attacked
by rioting Hindu mobs dating back from 1948, with the Babri
Masjid being attacked in 1990. The Iran-Iraq War had already
taken place (1980-1988), with the subsequent attack on Iraq by
the U.S.A. (The Gulf War 1990-1991). Thus, Muftí Sáhib was
not unaware of the distressing position of Muslims in different
parts of the world.
Since then, Muslims have suffered, and are still suffering,
even to a greater extent. Subsequent to 9/11, there has been
the invasion of Afghanistan by the U.S.A. and allied forces, the
overthrow of Ghaddafi in Libya and civil war, the persecution
of Muslims in China, Burma and the Central African Republic;
not forgetting the fighting in Egypt, Somalia, Nigeria, Iraq
and now Syria – and the subsequent Refugee Crisis that has
risen from these. Other problem areas that confront Muslims,
together with other communities, are high rates of crime, drug
abuse and other social ills. If there was a need for this book in
1991, there is a greater need for it now, in 2015!
