Islam (Sharia) of the Taliban vs. the Islam of Prophet Mohammad

The following is translation of His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech. View the original video above. 

Currently, negotiations are taking place between the Taliban and the Pakistani Government of Nawaz Sharif.

It is important that Islam be implemented, not just the Sharia, because the Prophet Mohammad implemented Islam, not Sharia. We are followers of Islam and call ourselves Muslim. But there are four parts of Islam: Shariat, Tariqat, Haqiqat and Muarifat; why does the Taliban only want to impose one part of Islam and not the entire religion of Islam? The demand of imposing Sharia in Pakistan is an un-Islamic demand because only Sharia is not Islam. Is there any one scholar in the world who can claim that Sharia alone is the complete Deen of Islam?

The Quran says:

ٱدۡخُلُواْ فِى ٱلسِّلۡمِ ڪَآفَّةً۬

Adopt the religion of Islam completely.

Adopting the Sharia alone is not adopting Islam completely, because the practice of Sharia alone does not enable one to reach God. Prophet Mohammad established the religion of Islam.

The question arises, which Sharia does the Taliban want to impose? Before imposing the Sharia on society, purify yourself first! The Taliban do not know what Sharia is and which Sharia should be practised. Assume that the Taliban wants to implement their version of the Sharia; but the Sharia of a Sunni, the Sharia of a Wahabbi and the Sharia of a Shiite all differ. If the Wahabbi are in the majority and their version of the Sharia is imposed, then the Shiite and Sunni sects, despite being Muslim, would be in minority; whereas in the era of Prophet Mohammad, the non-Muslims were in minority.

Those who want to impose the Sharia are not in power, yet they are carrying out bomb blasts on the mosques! Any sort of negotiation with the Taliban is dubious and extreme Kufr (infidelity). Negotiations are made with intellectuals and the Taliban are not intellectual; rather, they are insane. On one hand, they want to implement the Sharia; in doing so, they are creating chaos. They are taking lives of innocent people and bombing the mosques, during which copies of the Holy Quran are burned also. What kind of religious struggle is this in which the Holy Book of God is disrespected? They are destroying the tombs of the Saints of God and justify all of this as the implementation of Sharia. This is direct blasphemy to God and making a mockery of Islam. These so-called negotiations will have no outcome; this entire political drama is based on hypocrisy.

If there are any ethical Muslims left in the Pakistan Army, they should implement the Martial Law before the remaining land of Pakistan is taken away from them. At this moment in time, there is no better solution. Why kind of religious struggle and hypocrisy is this where no bomb blasts are carried out in Punjab and all bomb blasts are carried out in Peshawar, Karachi or Quetta? Maybe the hidden agenda behind these negotiations is to accept some terms and conditions set by the Taliban in order to give them power in the government. When the Taliban will be given power in the government, they will openly inflict cruelty upon the public.   

His Divine Eminence Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi states, 'Before the government of Pakistan is given into the hands of the Dervish, it will go into the hands of the clerics for one year and in that one year they will inflict great cruelty upon the people.'

Most of the philosophers and journalists have been bought out by the Taliban. They have no religion; their religion is money only. They are in the business of taking bribes, and presenting falsehood as the truth and the truth as falsehood.

I give this slogan to the people:

Implementation of the Sharia, alone, is un-Islamic; Islam should be implemented!

Implement the real Islam and you will see that these Taliban are the Kafireen (Infidels), they are Mardoud (rejected by God). Implementation of the real Islam will call for their heads first.

What are the customs of Prophet Mohammad and what are the teachings of Islam?  How did Islam order Muslims to behave with other non-Muslims? The religion of Islam permitted all religions to freely worship according to their respective religions. Islam fully permits Hindus to build temples, Christians to build churches, Jews to build synagogues and gives complete rights to all other minorities. If the real Islam is implemented, then things will improve and the very existence of the Taliban would be wiped out - because according to the Islam of Prophet Mohammad, they are all Infidels.
