  • Story Of Pakistan

    Hi Folks

    Let us discuss how this most difficult problem was solved through Allah's Wahee (revelations) and how the Prophet (pbuh) and his companions put the solution in practice. There are two branches of any system of Government-legislation and enforcement. The first entails making laws for governance and prescribing individual and collective behaviour. The second comprises putting the legislation in practice and preventing its disregard or infringement. Obviously, the pivotal part is legislation. For this the Quran lays down that sovereignty (right to pass laws) rests with Allah. It also says that no one else shares this sovereignty. The Quran summed up these principles thus: Those who will establish a system of government according to the Book will be the Believers; those who would transgress will be non-believers.

    Islamic Government is the group of Believers that undertakes to enforce Allah's laws. Its role in making laws is limited only to laying down details applicable to principles and values enunciated by the Quran while its chief function is to enforce those laws. That is how establishing Allah's rule comes in practice. Ideology of Pakistan too is that sovereignty rests with Allah. In practical terms this ideology ensures that our freedoms and responsibilities in an Islamic state will be subject to the confines of Book of Allah. The sum total of the two parts makes up rule of the Quran. The Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah stood for these principles in regard to the new state of Pakistan and its goals.

    It was because of keen awareness of this state of affairs that Allama Iqbal gave the concept of a modern state in which sovereignty should rest in the Book of Allah. He envisaged that it should result in Islam coming back on the world scene in its pristine form. Both Allama Iqbal and the Quaide Azam had made it clear that in their projected new state, laws of the Quran will be supreme. To our hard luck, however, when the time for drawing up the laws came, neither the Quaid-e-Azam nor Allama Iqbal was on the scene. Worse, after creation of Pakistan our theocratic elements started demanding enforcement of Islamic laws ("Islamic" meant "sectarian"), because Pakistan had been secured in the name of Islam! Earlier, we have seen, what kind of Islam they were advocating; it certainly was not the Islam of the Quranic concepts!
