Spirit of the State of Madinah: Reconstruction of Pakistani Society
The process of rising and fall of nations is different from the rise and fall of civilizations.
No one can kill civilizations from outside, they only commit suicide. The essence of every nation is its spiritual principles. When these principles die, nations become dead. In Muslim civilization, the emergence of our spiritual principles, In the case of the state of Madinah, was established by the Messenger of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad. Apart from other principles, these were the five most important basic principles on which the state of Madinah stood.
First Principle (Oneness of Allah & Justice)
These principles are Oneness of Allah, justice, and the rule of law, the result of which is the principle of merit, strong moral basis, participation of all mankind in progress and prosperity, and the pursuit of knowledge. For the revival of this spirit of the state of Madinah, the “National Mercy of the Worlds Authority” has been established.
The first principle on which the state of Madinah was founded was the principle of Tawhid. This concept is derived from the Quran and in a way is the basic principle of religion. The unity of God is the most important principle of Islam. It is important to remember that our Prophet united people of different racial and religious backgrounds into one group. Along with Muslims, this group included Christians, Jews, and Sabeans who became the social vestments in the state of Madinah.
Second Principle (Rule of Law)
The second principle was the ‘rule of law‘ which was achieved through selection on the basis of justice and merit. The Holy Prophet (sws) made it clear that no one is above the law. There are two kinds of laws: one for the princes and the other for the poor. You say: “O people! When a man of lower rank would steal, punishment would be imposed on him. By God, if Muhammad’s daughter Fatima also steals, I will also cut off his hand ”(Sahih Muslim 1688).
If one looks at the contemporary world, one can easily see that the most successful states are those where the law is strictly enforced. In addition to the Western nations, we see that even in these East Asian nations, which have recently become prosperous, this principle is strictly followed. Japan, China, and South Korea are just a few examples. The rule of law was violated, they were seen drowning in poverty and disorder.
Many Muslim countries, despite the abundance of resources, are less developed. This is because of the lack of law enforcement. Another example is South Asia. In today’s India, the rule of law is discriminatory. The immediate result is poverty and countless separatist movements that threaten the unity of the state. I have put.
In Pakistan, too, when the rule of law was ignored, the result was the looting of billions of dollars from the national treasury, which plunged the people into collective poverty. Many in the United States and Latin America The way politics and development are driven in the countries is also telling the same story. The so-called ‘Banana Republic’ also reached this stage due to a lack of rule of law. There is little to say about the relationship between addiction and disability in the rule of law and social and political harmony.
Third Principle (Restructuring of the People)
The third principle of the state of Madinah was: the moral restructuring of the people … the concept of enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. The Qur’an describes it as the distinguishing principle of the Muslim Ummah: “You are the best Ummah that has been raised for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, and you believe in Allah. (Al-Imran 3: 110)
The inculcation of good and the prohibition of evil is a collective duty aimed at the moral construction of society. No one disagrees with this principle, but some of us are of the opinion that moral construction should be left to the discretion of the people. The state must be neutral about the notions of good and evil that religion has given.
It is an outdated idea that causes many problems. On the one hand, it prevents the state from fulfilling its moral obligation and on the other hand, it gives an open opportunity to its opponents to use our education system and resources. Destroy our values with the help of your immense resources. The National Rehmat-ul-Ulameen Authority is committed to fulfilling the responsibility of enjoining the good in schools and universities through the teaching of Sira-ul-Nabawi, with the hope that Will raise the moral standards of our society.
Fourth Principle (Collective Development)
The fourth principle of the state of Madinah was collective development through the establishment of a welfare state. A state where society cares for the poor and needy and everyone contributes to the development of the state and society. There is a state which has taken the responsibility of the weaker section of the state. We should revive this tradition of our Prophet Muhammad. Our citizens should get involved in their affairs and be generous to others.
It should be borne in mind that the concept of the welfare state in modern times is derived from the experiences of Western Europe. However, the model of most of the welfare states in the West was not environmentally sustainable as it consisted of consumer societies where people buy more than they need, and as a result waste of food and consumer goods increases. ۔
If the whole non-Western world adopts this concept of the welfare state and follows the same path of production, waste, and waste that these states have taken, then by one estimate, we have six such vessels (planets) having the same size as the earth. Such a welfare state is neither possible nor desirable. Since Islam is a path of moderation, the path of moderation in terms of prosperity and use is the ideal path for us. Be able to meet your basic needs with dignity, in line with global standards of education and hygiene.
Fifth Principle (Knowledge)
The last principle is a society based on knowledge, where the difference between literacy and knowledge is well understood. Literacy may provide access to information that teaches good manners, but it is also important to note that literacy rates are high in some of the world’s most crime-ridden areas. The fact should not be overlooked that the first president and almost all the scholars of the Middle Ages had a deep taste for spirituality.
It is important to note that improving literacy rates alone is not enough to create a happy society. Therefore, from eternity to eternity, knowledge is essential which is also the guarantor of spiritual evolution. Create attributes like volunteerism.
In light of these lofty values and ideals, we have embarked on the path to a welfare state with some great initiatives. Never done The program was launched in 2019. The program is designed to provide social protection and alleviation of poverty to the weaker sections of society. Considers it her responsibility.
The Health Facility Program is one of the great projects in the history of Pakistan which is guaranteed to provide universal health care to our citizens. They will be forced to take out a loan and it will also create a network of private hospitals across the country. This will not only benefit the people but also the private sector who want to work in the health sector.
The Punjab Government alone has allocated Rs. 400 billion for this project. The Health Facility Program is a major milestone in the journey of social welfare reform. With dignity, treatment should be available and their financial burden should not be increased.
Despite the post-Corona era global economic difficulties, we have not neglected educational reform. Our Sense Scholarship Program will ensure that talented young people from the underprivileged and the poor get a good education so that they have a wider opportunity to improve their quality of life. Including other scholarships, six million scholarships worth Rs. 47 billion are being provided under this program. There is no precedent in the history of Pakistan in the field of education.
Finally, I would like to reiterate that the challenges facing Pakistan deserve immediate attention and respect for the rule of law. We must strive for that. Our 75-year history has been captivated by a culture in which powerful and insidious politicians and mafia have become accustomed to going beyond the law to secure their privileges and privileges obtained through this corrupt system. ۔
While protecting their privileges, they also corrupted state institutions, especially those whose job was to uphold the rule of law and protect the rule of law. Such individuals and the mafia are blood-sucking lice from this system who are not loyal to this country. In order to harness Pakistan’s true strength, resources, and capabilities, it is imperative to defeat them.
