The period of Imam Ahmad Raza (1856-1921) was a murderer era for the Muslims of united India.
Besides British injustice various religious, political, educational , Social & culural thoughts &
movements were attacking on Muslims & Islam. An abridged survey of these thoughts & movements is
presented as under :-

of the Holy Prophet Sall Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam & indecent remarks on Islam by differented non Muslims organization & Arya Samaj.

Fatawa from Ulama about the Slaughtering Cows. The monuments of Islam were being destroyed & Muslim
people were being Slaughtered and genocide.
- Muslim Ulama & leaders like Maulana Abdul
Baari, Muhammad Ali, Shaukat Ali, Abul Kalam Azad etc were influenced by Gandhian policy & went beyond the limit
of Shariah and made friends with the non Muslims which desregarded Islam.
In the guise of freedom-Hijrah movement, Jehad movement, Khilafat movement and
Non-Coperation movement were launched. These movements made the Muslims tolally paralised in all religious, political,
Social & Economic fields. Abul Kalam Azad denied the condition of Qarshiyat (A
member of the Prophet’s tribe)
- Rafzite had been cut off from Traditional Islam but
very cunningly they were making the Sunni People Tafzeeli. (Belief in the Caliphate without
seperation) and thus giving rise to express disapproval against Siddique Akbar, Farooque Azam & Usman Ghani Radhi
Allahu Anhum & in the name of devotion of Imam Hussain & members of the Prophet’s family were popularizing
Muharam mourning, Breast beating & different types of innovations.
- Misled mystics had allowed prostration,
circumambulation of graves, qauwali wih the musical instruments, women were appointed attendant of the
Shrine, they were allowed to visit the graves, assemble & participate the Urs, kissing hand & foots of
saintly guides & attend the saintly guides (even be non-maharram) without pardah (Viel) & many innovations
were being popularised.
