    Default Imam Shakeel Begg of Lewisham Mosque on Tawfique Chowdhury

    Imam Shakeel Begg of Lewisham Mosque on Tawfique Chowdhury:

    Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim

    It is with much sadness that I read Tawfique Chowdhury's speech to the anti-terrorism officers in Wales, which he brazenly posted on an Islamic blog. I was deeply shocked and appalled by his enthusiasm for collaboration with a body that has failed its own war against Islam and the Muslims at home and abroad. It is deplorable for a graduate from the prestigious Islamic University of the Prophet's city the first Islamic State where the subject of 'Aqida is emphasised the most, to declare himself an ally of the West against Islam, not even by choice, but naturally. It is ridiculously outrageous for a Muslim speaker to lure the anti-terrorism officers into using him and other religious leaders against the Muslim community. This is not to say that we should not work to prevent unlawful violence. In fact, many have been at the forefront of this work, without signing a deal with the devil, or joining any sort of alliance, be it natural or otherwise, with the brutal, cunning and oppressive anti-terrorism workforce.

    In light of this, I urge Tawfique Chowdhury to publicly and unequivocally retract his irresponsible and reckless speech, in order to save himself and his institute from disrepute. The failure in doing so will only reaffirm the public sentiment in the UK that he has clearly taken sides with the enemies of Islam the Muslims. I would also like to take this opportunity to remind the scholars, preachers and Imams that their silence is consent. Tawfique Chowdhury is not the first to fall into disrepute and controversy, and he certainly would not be the last, unless and until they fulfil, and not betray their covenant with Allah, like those of whom Allah makes mention in His Book: "(And remember) when Allah took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture to make it known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it, but they threw it away behind their backs, and purchased with it some miserable gain! And indeed worst is that which they bought."

    As'Salaamu Alaikum,

    I have noticed a difference in approach from the students of knowledge & sheikhs on this matter with Tawfeeq compared to Usama.

    We now have had Abu AbdisSalaam, Yasir Qadhi, Nabeel al-Haq, Imaan Shakeel Begg, Sheikh Anwar Awlaki and others who have spoken against what Tawfeeq said publically yet no one mustered a word against all the crazy things Usama said publically.

    Is it because Tawfeeq does not have a father as a sheikh? Or does not come from a family of scholars?

    Its is from the mercy of Allah that we have students of knowledge & sheikh who correct us when falsehood is presented, but I think this thing with tawfeeq is now leading to character assassination.

    Wa'Alaikum Salaam

    Maybe because Usama has never had a following?

    Abu Jafor,

    There are several reasons for their silence on Usama and public criticisms of Tawfique, and it isn't because of Usama's father. Number one reason is that Usama is not an author on MM. If he were to write his kufr on MM, he probably would have got the same treatment and the aforementioned figures would have definitely felt the pressure to respond and criticise.

    The second reason is that since Usama Hasan fiasco, the pressure has constantly been building, and most of the Salafis are like a kettle-whistle. They only make noise under pressure. We just need to make sure our pressure is greater than that of the government's.

    Lastly, there wasn't a need to assassinate Tawfique's character. He shot himself in the head and committed suicide.

    Masha'Allah Tabarakallah! I am yet to meet an Imam as involved as Imam Shakeel is with the dawah and the community work Masha'Allah. He works so hard and has so much love and concern for the community. May Allah reward him immensely. Ameen.
