The Winds of Irtidād Blowing from the Universities

Maulānā Khalīl-ur-Raḥmān Sajjad Nu’mānī

Translated by:

Mufti Abdullah Moolla

All praise is for Allāh Ta’ālā, may peace and salutations upon Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi sallam.

And whoever of you reverts from his religion [to disbelief] and dies while he is a disbeliever – for those, their deeds have become worthless in this world and the Hereafter, and those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally. [Sūrah Al-Baqarah: 217]

How shall Allāh guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and had witnessed that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them? And Allāh does not guide the wrongdoing people. [Sūrah āl-‘Imrān: 86]

Exalted is your Lord, the Lord of might, above what they describe. And peace upon the messengers. And praise to Allāh, Lord of the worlds. [Sūrah Aṣ-Ṣāffāt: 180-182]

There are hundreds, thousands, millions, nay, countless proofs that show the truthfulness and veracity of Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi sallam.

One of these proofs is the collection of advices in which he described and spoke about the conditions and events that would happen in time to come. Out of his intense compassion, he informed his Ummah of this. He was not some astrologer who looked at the stars and prophesised the future. He was the Messenger of Allāh. Because his Ummah is the last and he will remain the Messenger for all to come until the Day of Qiyāmah, so the conditions that would appear until Qiyāmah, what challenges the Ummah would have to face, Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi wa sallam had informed the Ummah of them in clear terms.

Now, if we remain ignorant, it is no fault of the Messenger of Allāh. It would be classified as our deprivation, our negligence, our ignorance, it would be our engrossment and worship of the worldly life – which consumes our day and night. In fact, we remain ignorant of even the most basic and necessary information and knowledge. We recite Sūrah Al-Ikhlāṣ in a broken way and feel that we are perfect Muslims. This is very great level of ingratitude for the Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi wa sallam. This is such a severe form of ingratitude and such a grave sin, that I do not have the words to describe it.

Whatever conditions the Ummah of Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi wa sallam will face, the deviations they will fall into, the dangers they will fall into, he left no stone unturned in explaining them all. He has informed us of them all. There is a ḥadīth in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim reported from Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi sallam in which he said:

“Be prompt in doing good deeds (before you are overtaken) by turbulence which would be like a part of the dark night. During (that stormy period) a man would be a Muslim in the morning and an unbeliever in the evening or he would be a believer in the evening and an unbeliever in the morning, and would sell his faith for worldly goods.”

Prepare yourself and turn to good deeds, making yourself so firm and strong so that these fitan, i.e., trials, will not be able to deviate you. If there is a storm or tornado about to hit, then the government and responsible authorities will inform the public to resort to safety measures in order to save and protect themselves.

With an even greater level of concern, compassion, and responsibility than the government, Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi wa sallam has informed us and the entire Ummah of the trials and tribulations that are coming. He instructed us to increase in deeds and to strengthen our īmān before the time will come wherein a person will be a believer in the morning and an unbeliever by the evening.

Such conditions will come that a person will be a believer in the morning and a disbeliever in the evening. Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihī wa sallam did not use any words about a condition or phase in between the two, i.e., he did not say that the īmān of a person will become weak, he did not say that a person will be overtaken by the love of the world, he did not say that a person will begin to commit a certain kind of sin, he will begin to watch films, he will start to see evil and lewd images, no, he said, “a man would be a Muslim in the morning and an unbeliever in the evening, a man would be a believer in the evening and a disbeliever by the morning.”

Think for a moment and tell me, has this time not come upon us?

What do you feel? Is there time to sleep in negligence for another twenty, fifty, or a hundred years? Are you not aware, or, maybe you have not been informed that eight hundred thousand girls of our country have become Murtad, i.e., renegade, left the fold of Islām.

Not everyone remains negligent like you and I. There are some people who have the flames and sparks of īmān in their hearts. They got together and consulted over the prevailing conditions. By the grace of Allāh Ta’ālā, a sinner like myself was included in the meeting. We consulted over the method to calculate the proper figure. There is only one way to gauge the proper figure.

A lawyer of the Supreme Court had informed me of this. The Marriage Registration Court that is present in every district, sends someone to find out. This is because whichever girl wants to marry someone of a different religion, or, if a couple want to enact a civil marriage, they have to first lodge an application. After the application has been made, the court displays the name of the person on a board. This remains for a month. The reason is that if anyone wants to object, he or she can do so in this time period. The name of the boy as well as that of the girl is displayed on the board. I am informing you of the total number of names found on the boards of the Marriage Registration Courts throughout the country.

From the information gathered, I am telling you that eight hundred thousand girls (800,000) have become Murtad, they have gone with the Hindus. Only Allāh Ta’ālā knows when people will realise, understand and come to their senses. Only Allāh Ta’ālā knows until when we will continue to only perform Jumu’ah Ṣalāh, week after week, and still feel that we are accomplished friends of Allāh.

I am only telling you of the number of girls. What is the Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi wa sallam saying? Do you have conviction that he is the Messenger of Allāh? Or, do we have some doubt that he is the Messenger of Allāh? Does the Messenger of Allāh inform us about the weather, that today it will rain and tomorrow it will be hot? Nay, the Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi wa sallam is telling us to hasten towards good deeds before fitan arrive, like a dark night.

What will happen at that time? He said, “a man would be a Muslim in the morning and an unbeliever in the evening, a man would be a believer in the evening and a disbeliever by the morning and would sell his faith for worldly goods.” For the greed of a few coins, he will sell his religion.

What can I tell you? I cannot understand how to put it in front of you. Forgive my insolence. Why are we so unaware and ignorant? I cannot understand. Is this some sort of punishment from Allāh Ta’ālā upon us?

Most of us send our daughters to schools, colleges, and universities. We do not keep track or check at all what they are learning there, whether they are learning science or studying immorality there. Are they learning mathematics and science there or are they learning blasphemy, i.e., kufr, there? We are totally unaware.

RELATED: The Perils of “Educating” Our Daughters

When someone informs us, “keep your daughter modest, keep her in ḥijāb, do not leave her uncovered”. We retort by saying, “I don’t know, these are Maulānā’s tales of old. The times have changed.” Has Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi sallam changed? Has Allāh Ta’ālā changed? Has the Noble Qur’ān changed? Has Islām changed? What has changed? We must say, “we have changed.” Do not say that the times have changed. It is a lie that the times have changed. Say that we have changed. We have become hypocrites. We have begun to think that īmān and Jannah are insignificant. We feel that Jahannam is insignificant.

Hundreds of thousands of girls leave the home wearing a Burqah, sometimes you should follow your daughter, I am telling the fathers whose daughters leave the home wearing the Burqah, I am telling their brothers, you must check and monitor at times, for how long or how far from the home does the Burqah remain? She removes it, folds it, and packs it in her bag. What happens after this? How unaware and ignorant the Muslim Ummah is?

A few days ago, I had arrived here. I mentioned it then and I am saying it now. I have mentioned this in thousands of places. The RSS has prepared a huge team. They train their youngsters for three to six months. They teach these youngsters how to converse in high Urdu. The common words (used by Muslims) are taught to them. ‘Alḥamdulillāh, Mā shā Allāh, Innā Lillāh’. All of this is taught to the youngsters. These youngsters are then instructed to go out and lure the Muslim girls. If a youngster lures and ensnares a girl into Hinduism, he is immediately given a cheque of 250 000 rupees, a house, and a job.

RELATED: Bulli Bai: Hindutva Trolls Selling Muslim Women in Auctions?

In this age of unemployment, when our youngsters cannot find jobs, the non-Muslim boy feels that he will win on all fronts. We will win over a girl, make her a Hindu, get a cheque, a house, and a job. What a bargain!

If a person wants to marry a Hindu girl, it is a great calamity. There are so many customs and payments to make, it is literally a calamity. Here, we are getting a girl for free with so many things we do not even envisage.

Millions of youngsters are engaged in this training and are out there to achieve their goals. But we are sleeping. Only Allāh Ta’ālā knows which whip or lash of His we want? Which slap we want, which punishment we want, that will wake us up?

I recited the verse in the beginning. At this moment in time, we are not faced with a matter of sin, but the matter is that of Irtidād. There is a fund of billions of dollars that have been set up in order to snatch our īmān. There is only one avenue for the utilization of these funds. Before it was to loot and snatch the lives and wealth of the Muslims. This is a small task.

The task now is to snatch the īmān of the Muslims. Warn, threaten, and entice them. We have already heard the talks of warnings and all the threats. If you did not hear about the enticement, then your ears were plugged. Today, I shall tell you, wake up. Up to this point you have not understood where to send your daughters for learning and education.

Akbar Ilāhābādī was a judge in the High Court. He mentioned a couplet. He was not a Maulānā. He was not some random Ḥājī Saheb or Ḥāfiẓ Saheb. He was a judge in the High Court during British Rule. He said,

By killing the children, he would not have been disgraced

Regrettably, Fir’awn did not think of a college

He could have simply sent the children to college. His work would have been done.

Set up your own institutions in which you teach your children, together with imparting Islāmic culture in them. I do not say that you should not educate your children. But I definitely say that educating them in such a way where their honor is destroyed and their īmān is snatched, to do this is the work of a mad man. There is no person more insane in the world than such a person. Better than doing something like this is to keep our daughter illiterate. It seems that my last sentence is wrong but it will serve the correct end. We have no idea what is happening all around us.

The news I have mentioned to you will never be brought out in the media. There is no question about it. Their objective is to show themselves as secular in the United Nations. How can they ever speak of this?

The following verse of the Noble Qur’ān causes a person to shiver:

And whoever of you reverts from his religion [to disbelief] and dies while he is a disbeliever – for those, their deeds have become worthless in this world and the Hereafter, and those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally. [Sūrah Al-Baqarah: 217]

Even if a person did an abundance of good deeds, he toiled in the cold nights and served widows and orphans, all of these good deeds will be destroyed. He will fail in this world and in the hereafter. There will be no blessings or reward for these actions and he will be in the fire if he turns to disbelief after īmān.

Do we have doubt in the Noble Qur’ān? Is the Noble Qur’ān the word of some Maulānā? In essence, we deny and refute the word of Allāh Ta’ālā. But we do not have the courage, so we take the name of the Maulānā and deny the word of Allāh Ta’ālā. We cannot take the name of Allāh Ta’ālā and deny, otherwise our Nikāḥ will break, our wives will go back to their parents’ homes.

Before the Day of Qiyāmah and before the truth overpowers, I am saying this for the last few years already. Before the truth overpowers, the process is already in motion from Allāh Ta’ālā. All the people who are not believers, even if they are wearing a hat and jubba, but they are not believers from within, they do not have conviction in Allāh Ta’ālā, they do not have conviction in the truth of the Noble Qur’ān, they are not convinced of the truth of Islām, the love of Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam is not in their hearts, Allāh Ta’ālā will separate them from the main body of Muslims. They will become Murtad. This has happened before too.

The process of sifting has begun. This is something to be fearful about. I take an oath in the name of Allāh Ta’ālā and speak to you, I present the summary of hundreds of verses to you, Allāh Ta’ālā will catch the ear of person who is something outside but totally different from within, and take him out. In the end, there will be just a few people of īmān remaining. By means of this group, the flag of Islām will be waved and hoisted high. By means of them, the truth will overpower. All of this has been discussed in the aḥādīth. This is covered in many verses of the Noble Qur’ān.

[It is] so that Allāh may distinguish the wicked from the good and place the wicked some of them upon others and heap them all together and put them into Hell. It is those who are the losers. [Sūrah Al-Anfāl: 37]

And that Allāh may purify the believers [through trials] and destroy the disbelievers. [Sūrah āl-‘Imrān: 141]

The sifting has begun and it is going ahead very fast. Only Allāh Ta’ālā knows when a person of my home could become a Murtad. He alone knows when someone from your home could become a Murtad. He alone knows when people performing ḥajj will become Murtad. It was just yesterday that a friend sent me a message of the daughter of a Ḥāfiẓ Al-Qur’ān that became Murtad. In fact, word came to me that a girl, a Ḥāfizah, had become Murtad. We do not know of this. We are in a very strange kind of unawareness and negligence.

Allāh Ta’ālā alone knows what kind of intoxication we are in. If we lose a few rupees, we cannot sleep. Our condition is terribly affected if the price of a commodity goes up, we cannot eat and drink properly. And here, īmān is being snatched and stolen, thieves are waiting in ambush for īmān. What face will we show to Sayyidunā Muḥammad Rasūlullāh ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa ālihi wa sallam tomorrow on the Day of Qiyāmah? What will happen on that day when the scales will be set up? Deeds will be weighed. On that day, the reality will come out. What will happen at that moment? The following will happen;

[Allāh will say], “Seize him and shackle him. Then into Hellfire drive him. Then into a chain whose length is seventy cubits insert him.” [Sūrah Al-Ḥāqqah: 30-32]

He will say, ‘my name was Zayn-ul-‘Ābidīn, my name was Muḥammad Sajjād’. What will happen because of a name?

In Sūrah āl-‘Imrān, Allāh Ta’ālā says,

How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and had witnessed that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. [Sūrah āl-‘Imrān: 86]

May Allāh Ta’ālā grant us the ability to come to our senses. The path of this Irtidād comes from the schools, colleges, and universities, even though you might feel offended or bad about it. I am not that simpleton Maulānā who just came from his village. I have delivered lectures in Stanford and Cambridge. I have delivered tens of lectures at Stanford, which is one of the highest-ranking universities in the United States of America. I lectured at the United Nations. I am not ‘that’ kind of Maulānā that you think and understand. I take an oath in the name of Allāh Ta’ālā, I am telling you that if you do not arrange for the education and nurturing of your sons and daughters in the proper institutions and do not worry about their īmān and do not supervise them, then only Allāh Ta’ālā knows what will come out of your homes. Today, in this Masjid, I have fulfilled my responsibility, now I hand you and your progenies over to Allāh Ta’ālā.

I am from South India too, here we hear everyday about girls going with the Hindus. The RSS are training their Men to allure and trap Muslim Women. Yes, they get cash reward too. May Allah help the Muslims.


So Basically, they are the ones doing the so-called “Love G-had” while constantly accusing Muslims of doing it to them.


Yes they are basically groomed to do this


Didn’t you see the TRT world video on so called “Love Jihad”? The hindu guy in it himself married a “muslim” woman.


Mostly non-religious sisters fall into this, but even some religious sisters due to lack of ilm and kollywood grooming


Parents should not be sending their daughters to go to universities, there’s online learning now anyways. Men are to be blamed here, men need to have more gheerah, self-respect, and protect their women-folk from devious non-muslims.

I personally would never send my daughters to universities to be taught all kind of junk, but rather send them to deeni madaris. And if there is secular education it would be at home, not outdoors.

Karim Adel

online would be better but it doesnt change the content of what they get taught. They feed them the kind of knowledge that makes them look down on religion and ignore traditions, the students are fed ideas about being independent, liberal, progressive, modern and so forth…these ideas dont directly ask them to drop religion but the results are the same.

in summary, we need to wake up to the content and ideas that our daughters are being educated/indoctrinated.


As far as sending them to “Deenin Madaris” I would advise you ahead of time to make alot of research about the quality of the specific Madrasa, and how well the administration runs it. I’ve finished both Hifz and Alim in Darul Uloom, and I can tell you that unfortunately parents send their kids to these Madaris, thinking that the Madaris are rehabs. Kids who were previously uncontrollable and delinquint, would be sent to these madaris, and as a result, even the “good kids” would get ruined.

What problems you found with the medaris? I went to a few where they beat and torture the kids for simple mistakes like mispronouncing or forgetting a Quran verse. I read that there are also many molvies who live a double-life of sexually molesting boys and girls that they teach Quran to (many molvies are arrested and jailed for this in many countries including Pakistan). This is something which the ultra-Conservative islamic group Majlisul Ulama South Africa frequently condemn rival mullahs for


Yes and I was a victim of both physical and mental torture when I was doing hifz. It was extremely tough but by Allah’s permission I finished my hifz. I’m not saying we should shut down these madaris completely, but I do believe that there needs to be much more accountability of the “Scholars” running these madaris.


yes true, the madrasa teachers have a very tough time


I’m about to finish my bachelor’s in Application Programming and I can tell you that perhaps only 15% of the classes I had to take would actually help me with my Programming Career. The remaining were either unnecessary requirement classes, or other classes where they try to brainwash you to become “tolerant” and “open-minded.”


I agree. If Allah did not save and protect me, I would also have been further into the path of Jahannam. But then, alhamdulillah I’m African and in the north of a country where most muslims live so the thought of removing hijab or leaving islam is not even warranted. When I came over here, I was shocked that girls didn’t wear hijab like…
Allah guided me to not take non-muslims as friends otherwise the emotional blackmails would have affected me.


I study psyc but nw I’v been pondering on the assumptions in this field and every other field. I see increase in love for materialism, the removal of God from our lives, and dopamine slaves. Don’t forget hw being an alphabet is human need.
Been thinking of the various parts of Islam that psyc is against to the extent I’m re-evalutating my life lol. The sciences are based on the removal of God from our lives, so it is no surprise you get murtads believing their grandparents were bacteria

Last edited 4 months ago by M.Z.

we need to understand that some of these sciences are also based on their own values. Values that require removal of any authority including God from our lives. Values that include doubting God and His wisdom/authority. Values that include self-indulgence. It has become difficult if not impossible to get a class that is not spewing kufr and nonsense but then its no surprise since they are kuffar. The idea of religion is “unscientific” hence its just something relative and based on feelings.


apostasy doesn’t come at once. All of these stuff one learns from “scientists” can eventually put you in ur cognitive dissonance. We are already weak in our yaqeen, so some of us will see this and assume science is correct while Islam is wrong. step by step and u lose ur been if u don’t hv a strong foundation


beautifully put


I suggest advice of Resoolullah PBUH that Muslims in India should make hijra to rural areas, and I complement that with advice from highest profile Indian Muslim (Dr Zakir Naik), that India Muslims should make domestic hijra to Muslim-majority local areas and enclaves within India. Living there in Muslim-majority enclave towns/villages in India means less exposure to the pagans and their culture as well as less chance of your daughters fall Victim to “Reverse love G-had” that hostile pagans do.


I agree. The best decision for Indian Muslims at the moment would be to move to Muslim majority enclaves.


Regarding accusations that pagans lure Muslimahs, I insist that India Muslims who are aware or have evidence or 1st hand witness (like this molana), should get in touch with journalists from potentially sympathetic foreign mainstream media like TRT and AJ, and foreign Islamic media like 5Pillars, to get them to make reports on this trend, in order to counter the pagan fascists propaganda claims of “Love jiihaad conspiracy” and expose that those pagans are the real ones who do it, not Muslims


This college education is not only a cash drain on the wallet but also fitnah for the sisters


Especially nowadays where there are different options for education.

The fitna affects the brothers as well.


So much to think about


This is just too painful to read, where is the gheerah of Muslim men and where are the brains of these girls
