In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Quran 6:76-79
When the night grew dark upon him he beheld a star. He said: This is my Lord. But when it set, he said: I love not things that set. And when he saw the moon uprising, he exclaimed: This is my Lord. But when it set, he said: Unless my Lord guide me, I surely shall become one of the folk who are astray. And when he saw the sun uprising, he cried: This is my Lord! This is greater! And when it set he exclaimed: O my people! Lo! I am free from all that ye associate (with Him). Lo! I have turned my face toward Him Who created the heavens and the earth, as one by nature upright, and I am not of the idolaters.
The Quran 39 :18
Who hear advice and follow the best thereof. Such are those whom Allah guideth, and such are men of understanding.
My official name is Syed Ali. I am originally from ?Bangladesh, but resident in the UK since 1973. At presently I am studying and following Al-Quran strictly. I pray Allah to guide us all. I have grown up as a Hanifi Madub follower since majority Muslim in Bangladesh are Hanifi.
Around year 1993 One of my parent become very ill and because of that I decide to practice Islam more seriously and I start using local Mosque for my regular daily prayer, which run by Berlovi sect, at first I quite like their style was looking forward to have meeting with imam to learn their version of Islam, at that time I thought that was Al-Islam. However I found very strange after each Juma prayer they circled around and start singing some of the Naat /song in order to phrase prophet Mohammed [s] which for some reason I find uncomfortable because to me it seem they are over reacting / respecting prophet Muhammed [s] more then Allah.
Around year 1994 I was in Bangladesh for long holidays and was using the local mosque which mainly runs by Tabligi sect. And they strongly request and convince me therefore I went on Jamat for 3 days, I quite like their style of Islam and start believing their way is the correct way of forward. But the head Imam of our local Mosque wasn’t too keen on Tabligi. He told me to investigate before I get too much involve with them. He told me some story about them sect, and when I done some research I too found Tabligi is just another sects made their own version of Islam. Anyway later that I imam become very close friend with me and since he was was hafiz of Quran did encourage me to memorise the Quran he also told me he will help me if I decide to do it, I took his advise and start memorising the Quran with his help.
Anyway the Imam was more into Sufism, he proposed me to research on sufisim and he even given me some books of Asraf Ali Thanbi to read. I found these books very interesting & start reading more and more. But then Imam told me if I just keep reading books, its not going to be much success, unless I take Bayah from his uncle who is the most well-known Sufi in the town. So I did and since he was a Nakshabondi followers therefore I have been given all the Nakshabondi style Tasbi and zikir to follow. As my knowledge improve on Islam, I found Sufism too just another sects who created their own version of Islam. However by then I return back to UK with verity type of literature on Islam to search for the truth
Around 1997 I became very good friend of a another local mosque Imam whom was the follower of Ikhwan / Iislamic Mission UK and he influence me to start doing some Dawa work to establish the law of Allah in the parliament. And he told me since I am Bangladeshi therefore it will be best if I join the IFE [Islamic forum Europe ] which is a Bangladeshi organisation that hold same mythology of Ikhwan / IMUK, however since my local town don’t have any branch of IFE , so I gather some friends & form a branch of IFE, Anyway I was quite enjoying and doing much activity as possible, but did found some of their activity uncomfortable such as taking record of all action such as good & bad deed and then share it with other members or report it to the amir, it simply make me wonder why should i need keep witness. Anyway because of that and some other reasons I realize they are too just other sects who created their own version of Islam so I left that group
Around year 1998 I attended, a lecture of Omer Bakri and I was convinced and found his way of thinking or ideology such as establish khalifa is more important and a duty of Islam. Therefore I joined Muhajeeroun and start doing some actively and Dawah work. But after some time I found, it to has too many flaw, confusion, and contradiction on their literature / syllabus and moreover they simply make too much noise and too extremist, so I thought that cannot be the way of Islam they too created their own version, so must leave it and I did.
Meanwhile around year 2000 I was elected as president on one of the local Bangladeshi Mosque I was busy how to modernise that mosque. And Alhamdullilah with help of my management committee and genral local members I manage to rise enough fund and refurbished the mosque, but later due to my special faith some members don’t like me therefore left and do not go there anymore
Around year 2003 a local businessman request me to help on fundraising to establish Islamic School so I got involve, but that businessman was Ahl-Hadith therefore I have meet some Ahl-Hadith scholars through Him. And we mange to bought the building and start mosque and evening Islamic School .as the time pass I start to believe that following Ahadith is the correct way of Islam. As the time pass and my knowledge improve on Hadith I found majority of the Hadith contradict / conflict between Hadith itself and some even contradict with Al-Quran. so I start research on Hadith and finally I realize they too another sects of islam.And since Al-Quran teach to avoid all sects therefore I keep my distance from them.
Anyway as the time pass around 2008 I become aware by internet regarding following Quran Alone I come cross with IIPC website, At first I found Muhammed Shiakh lecture very interesting and informative and I start to believing some of his concept in the light of Quran. But I always reject some of his most false concept which only base on few verse without context which he trick his follower. I found him most of the time use verses from out of context to suite his need. He did manage to brainwash some his fan whom follow him blindly & believe every single word from him. And then later I found out that his members class him as Messenger of Allah. And form that moment I do not listen any of his lecture. And to me anyone claim he is messenger of Allah then he is simply nothing but a another liar. All thanks to Allah as my knowledge improve I realize this IIPC is another cult that follows a man as their Qibla. And because of Allah’s mercy on me I manage to escape from every trick of SATAN to hold me within a sect..Alahamdulillahi-Rabbil Alameen.
ALLAH ALONE & I FOLLOW AL-QURAN WITH AL-KITAB
2010- TILL MY LAST BREATH INSHA-ALLAH
Finally I am so happy, & have fully peace in my heart that I am following the Book of Allah (the Quran) with Al-Kitab. My pray & all thanks due to Allah alone
The Quran: 3:8
