Join us and be enlightened
Nothing in this universe has been created unreasonably. There is an architect behind every single creation. This vast world is a similar creation, which has been created by Almighty Allah. All the ingredients of this world are being engaged in the welfare of the mankind and the human being is created only for offering prayer. Almighty Allah has sent several prophet and messengers to show and guide the humanity so that they say their prayers properly. The people, who have accepted the prophets and would try to lead their lives accordingly, are Muslim. The legacy of the Prophet has been ended with the appearance of the last Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (Peace be upon Him). No more prophets will come in this world. The Muslims would continue the tasks of the Prophets in absence of the Prophets. Most of the people in Bangladesh are Muslims. But they have moved away from the real teachings and morals of Islam. Particularly, the statuses of the youth communities are more deplorable. In this backdrop, Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir has been established with an honest intention to enlighten the youth section with the light and color of Islam and to pose them in the leading position.
The creator and controller of the Universe:
We are using many things including books, pen, car, computer, radio and mike regularly. All these things have been created in a specific form. Nothing has been created automatically. It is not like that, you can make a car by simply assembling several materials or a pen cannot be created if you cut a piece of plastic randomly. Man has become able to create these things, by using his brain and after series of thoughts and assessments. There are some specific modules and systems of using these materials. Such as, pen cannot be used if its nib is broken. If a person starts driving without any training, he may experience massive accident. Similarly, all the items and ingredients of this earth and the universe have been formed and functioning as per specific rules and regulations. A man would be ridiculed if he claims that this world and its nature had been created automatically and suddenly. At the same time, it is also a rubbish and foolish claim that, this universe has no creator or controller.
Actually, Almighty Allah is the biggest proprietor of this universe. He has created everything and now he is controlling as well. He had a great plan behind this huge creation. Every single item of this universe is being conducted according to a comprehensive rule and the scientific system. In this regard, Almighty Allah gloriously says in the holy Quran
“Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding. Those who remember Allah (always and in prayers) standing, sitting and lying down on their sides and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying), “Our Lord, you have not created this without purpose. (Sura Al Imran: Verse 190-191)
Man and the Universe:
Then reasonably question emanated, why such blessings like the universe and the earth has been created? To get the answers, we have to proceed a bit. Actually, all these things of the universe have been created for the welfare of the mankind. Almighty Allah sent the human being into this earth after He had created all the suitable things for the humanity for living. Since the inception, all the materials have been controlled and functioned as per the specific rule. Such as we are witnessing that the sun rises in the east and sets at the west. The sun has no capacity to breech this code. But human being is not bound to follow any such role strictly.
Practically, Almighty Allah has made everything symbolic for the mankind. As we have referred a verse of the holy Quran. From a tiny thing to a mighty; everything is offering prayer to him. This is why; they are in peace from time immemorial. This is a big lesson for the mankind and they should follow the doctrines of the Almighty Allah similarly. On the other hand, all these creations are being preserved for the welfare of the humanity and the people are meeting their demand with these ingredients. He says,
“All the things of this earth have been created for you (Al Quran).
The responsibility of the mankind:
So it is naturally understood that Almighty Allah has engaged everything in this earth at the service of the humanity. But in the past, it has been noticed often that, people became subservient to different objects, sometimes to the sun or sometimes started praying before a manmade idols. Surprisingly, people around the world are of the same kind. They all are equal. None is superior or inferior to anyone in sense of by default dignity. But it has been seen that, a man became servant to another man like him. Someone started ruling or controlling others. This is a severe insult to the humanity. Not only, previous tyrannical rulers like Namrud or Feraun are doing this ill practice, this bad culture is still being practiced by their successor. They had imposed their self-made doctrine or rule upon the general masses. As there is lacking of knowledge about the creator and his rule, people became obedient to those autocrats.
But Almighty Allah says, people in this earth are my representative. While creating human being, He said towards the angels,
“I want to send Khaliph in the Earth.”
So naturally, human being is superior to the mankind. It is their obligation to follow the doctrines of Almighty Allah and also to rule the Earth accordingly. But being failed to understand this spirit, people became servant to different objects or any other human being often.
The real identity of the mankind:
Human being is half free and half confined. Such as, Almighty Allah has given mouth to speak. Man cannot use its ear to speak. Under this circumstance, people’s capacity of using organs is limited but what he/she would say, he is free to decide that. This is why even a bad man is inclined to portray him as a great man. This intention actually comes from people’s own conscience. Conscience is a power to create a difference between the good and the evil.
Hazrat Mohammad (Peace be upon Him), the last Prophet:
Among the prophets and the messengers, Hazrat Mohammad (Peace be upon Him) is the last Prophet. Holy Quran has been revealed upon Him. This holy book says about the directives which the human being is supposed to follow. The last Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon Him) has established Islam as the doctrine of Almighty Allah. This living code is the only code of complete life for the humanity which has been nominated by the Almighty Allah. So in the last verse of the holy Quran, Allah says,
This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned meats), then surely, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Sura Maaidah; Verse 3)
The real consequence of the mankind:
Almighty Allah promised that He would award bounties and blessings to those people who would exercise the rules and regulations of the Almighty Allah as per the instructions of His messenger. Such as, the mankind got justice and led a discrimination and oppression free life in the tenure of the Kholafaye Rasheda and the just rulers of different decades. But Allah will give more reward in the world hereinafter. On the day of resurrection, Almighty Allah would regenerate the peoples and would unify them. People have to be accountable for his deeds on that day. The people who have followed the orders and directions of the Almighty, they would be blessed with paradise forever. On the contrary, they would be punished who have denied the principles and doctrines of the Almighty Allah. Their only destiny is fire.
Some foolish, boastful, least prudent personnel are often daring to ignore the life hereafter. The Satan was the similar like these quarters. He became full of ignorance and pride. He did not want to recognize anyone as his superior. The Akhirat ignorant people are also suffering from same pride. They do not want to admit anything beyond their ideas. But anyone can get the point easily if he just thinks how a green grass is being produced from a dry land just after a moment of rains. How the spring is coming after dry season of winter yearly in a systematic way? How the night comes after a day? When such a reverse thing may happen periodically, then what would bar the creator Almighty Allah to regenerate his own creatures?
This world is a place of test and assessment, while the life hereinafter is the moment of achieving the result. We must assess before assigning a person that whether he/she is competent enough for the responsibility? A person must be rewarded or be punished as per his performance and activities.
Similarly, the human being in this world is being designated as the superior most among all the living creatures. He/she has been given the responsibility of representing the Almighty. How much qualified and competent a man is for this responsibility that would be evaluated through his activities in this world. People can justify his position by following the directives of the Almighty Allah. As the humanity would get its due reward or punishment in the Akhirat (world hereafter) so the success of that world is the actual success of the humanity.
The responsibility of the Muslim Ummah:
The holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him) guided the world humanity towards the path of success. His personal life and characteristics is a great model for the humanity. He has struggled all through his life for establishing Almighty Allah’s doctrine and tackling the barriers of this way. He has worked hard to make human being the best representatives of the God. After his departure, this responsibility has been bestowed upon his Ummah. They would try to this job in two phases. 1) They would follow Islam in their respective lives. Their life would be the best example to the rest people of the world. 2) They would establish genuine Islamic society based on Islamic rules and regulations in order to free the people from clutches of repression and torture. In this backdrop, Almighty Allah calls the faithful quarter in the following way:
And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help."
Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends ofShaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan). (Sura Nisa: Verse 75-76)
So it is the responsibility and obligation of the Muslim Ummah is to carry fight and struggle for establishing the doctrine of Almighty Allah. This effort would ensure the ultimate freedom of the mankind. While, Almighty Allah also promised to reward bounties to those people, who would carry such endeavor in this world. In the holy Quran, Allah says
10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.
11. That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!
12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn - Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success. (Sura As Saff: Verse: 10-12)
The real meaning of the word ‘Jihad’ is to carry effort with highest sincerity, inherent merit and quality for the establishment of Almighty Allah’s doctrine. The one word meaning of the ‘Jihad fi Sabilillah’ is Islamic movement.
So, according to the Al Quran, the responsibility of the Muslim Ummah is to conduct Islamic movement utilizing and engaging the personal quality, sincerity and capacity.
Performing duties, not lonely but altogether
Prophet (Pbuh) did not perform his duties alone. He initiated the task and invited others. He organized and trained those people who had accepted his call. Later he carried out a movement with them and ultimately took part in a war. Consequently, Islam established in the world. Almighty Allah asks to stay on the path of Islam altogether:
"And hold fast by the rope (covenant) of Allah all together and be not disunited"....
(Quraan: Sura Aal-e-Imran, Ch 3 Ayat 103)
The order and instruction of the holy Quran must be followed. The way of Quran is the way of the holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him), the way of the Prophet’s companions. This is the way to establish Islam through struggle altogether. So we must have to be organized for performing and conducting the Imani responsibilities.
Chhatrashibir emerged as an element of the history
Following the departure of the holy Prophet (PbuH), the great servant of the Almighty always carried attempt for the establishment of Islam. They never remained idle lonely with Islam. Following those footsteps, Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir launched its journey with a vision to organize the youth community on the way of the glorious struggle.
The status of Bangladesh:
90 percent people of our country are Muslim. As a Muslim majority country, the state should be governed here as per the Islamic rules and regulations as Islam is the complete code of life.
How a person should maintain a healthy relationship with his family members, relatives, friends and colleagues,
What should be his responsibility towards different professionals like farmers, labors, teachers, intellectuals, businessmen, service holders and politicians,
How the problems of the nation such as social, financial, political and cultural crises would be resolved
Or what would be the relationship with other nations; all these facts have been discussed and revealed in Islam.
But nothing is being implemented in this country where 89.7 percent of the total populations are Muslim. This issue is not even narrated in the curriculum. As a result, social cancers like corruption, terrorism, political instability, economic recession, lack of academic environment are becoming more and more acute in our society.
If we not carry any significant effort to alter this situation, we have to be accountable on the Day of Judgment.
The Mission and vision of Chhatrashibir:
Since the beginning of the journey, Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir has paved the way for the student community to play the leading role in the days to come. Chhatrashibir intends to attain satisfaction by ensuring welfare to humanity based on a system, which has been bestowed by the Almighty Allah and practiced by Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon Him). It is the basic duty of Muslims individually and collectively. So for the youths, for the successor of Ali, Khalid, Tariq and Mohammad Bin Quasem, the way of Chhatrashibir is the way of light. Islami Chhatrashibir calls the student community to sacrifice wholeheartedly in the way of Almighty. They calls the youths towards the path of Jannah.
Five points Programs:
It is not that easy to dedicate oneself in the way of Almighty. It cannot be done simply out of emotions. Rather, the best way of doing this task is to utilize the qualities and opportunities. Some scientific initiatives are also required to make the students as the most competent and qualified. Shibir subsequently plans to engage these competent youths for the activities of Almighty Allah’s doctrine. Chhatrashibir has five point programs.
Dawah or invitation:
(1) Conveying the message of Islam to the general students, to inspire them for acquiring Islamic knowledge and also to arouse the sense of responsibility of practicing Islam among them properly.
(2) To organize those students under a platform, who have accepted the sermons of Islam, who have the attitude and intention to follow the directives of Islam and who are ready to carry struggle for the establishment of Islam.
(3) The students, who are organized, must be built as per the ideals of the Prophet’s companions. These organizationally structured students must secure the noble characteristics and moral qualities. They should be used to sacrifice the most for the sake of Almighty Allah. They need to be bright and talented students so that they can pave the way to establish Islam in the significant posts of the society and the state. But to create such feeling and qualities is not easy and to maintain it appropriate training session is required. Competent Muslims are inevitably needed to tackle the current challenges and to substantiate the superiority of Islam over all the man made doctrines.
Alteration of the Education System and solving the problems of the student communities
(4) The current education system does not felicitate us to be qualified citizen, characteristic human being and perfect Muslim. So to produce pure Muslim and to establish Islam, we need complete Islamic Education system. This system will produce competent teachers, politicians, professionals, doctors but at the same time these highly qualified personalities will emerge as a dignified Muslims as well. So this program intends to launch Islamic education system. Establishing of Islam is the greatest service to the mankind. The people who are in this service, they would utilize all the probable facilities. So as a student organization, Chhatrashibir under this program decides to carry all out effort in order to resolve the crisis and problems of the Chhatrashibir.
Building of Islamic society and the freedom of the people:
(5)Through the aforesaid 4 point programs, such a dynamic and competent workforce would be produced who would lead the process in building and leading Islamic society. So this program is made to drive the competent manpower for continuing these activities. This program also promotes and encourages protest against all anti-Islamic activities in the society. In a word, this program calls to strive for building up an Islamic society for freeing humanity from all forms of economic exploitation, political oppression and cultural servitude.
Worldwide revival of Islam:
The world is experiencing a fresh revival of Islam everywhere. Muslim youths are leading this new upsurge. Different countries around the world are witnessing this revitalization. Thousands of hundreds of youths are coming in forth with the spirit of Islamic revolution. They have sacrificed the family affection, family love and worldly pleasure to dedicate themselves for the sake of Islamic revival. Many of them become martyr. Kremlin or Pentagon, the greatest establishments of the capitalist western community are at the verge of destruction due to the roar of the millions of Muslim youths.
The ongoing struggle of Islami Chhatrashibir is the reflection of the same revolutions, which are going on across the world. Now the time has come up to proceed towards their ultimate destiny of freedom. Subsequently, the agitating youth sections of Bangladesh must join the ongoing struggle led by Islami Chhatrashibir. The den of the oppressors should be dealt with characteristic beauty. The yearlong anti-Islamic quarter must be tackled constructively. A new world, a new society should be built like the peaceful society of Madina, ruled by our holy Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon Him). We must go step ahead towards the ultimate goal of paradise.
