The Tragedy of Qods


The book in your hand is the third publication of its kind in English, which is an English translation of an Urdu Seminar delivered by Ustad Sayed Jawad Naqvi. Prior to this Bethat Islamic Research Center (B..I.R.C) has released two English publications by the title “Philosophy of Religion” and “The Role of Women towards the System of Wilayat”. For those who are familiar with the style and methodology used by the Scholar in his discourses, this book is another gem of its kind. The book is different and unique by virtue of its explicit exposition of the subject of Qods. The speaker starts the topic with a classic summary on the background of creation of Israel with its causes. The discussion on Clash of Civilization is an eye opener for all of us who are breathing the western culture day and night. The author takes the reader down into the plans the enemies of Islam have for Islam with the nucleus of their conspiracies being Israel. The philosophy and the message of the Qods presented by the author in the light and vision of Imam Khomeini (r.a) are very clear and specific to its practical aspects. The significance of the organization and participation in Qods Day gets manifested clearly with its significance not just related to Palestine but towards a global movement against the hegemonic powers conspiracies against the Islamic world. The author refers briefly to the problems happening in other parts of the Muslim world like Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan with more emphasis on the sole method of solving these problems thereby giving salvation to the Muslim nation (Ummah). Throughout the book the author revolves the subject around the magnificence of the thoughts and vision of Imam Khomeini (r.a) and this forms the basis of the book.

وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُم بِبَعْضٍ لَّهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيراً

In the name of Allah

And had there not been Allah's repelling some people by others, certainly there would have been pulled down cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques in which Allah's name is much remembered..”
