Rare Justice: Judgements, Decisions and Answers to Difficult Questions part 16

Compensation for Hurt or Death by Quadrupads

Hazrat Ali (A) also declared: If some one is hurt and dies by the fore legs of a quadrupad the owner is responsible to pay the penalty, if by the hind he is not. In case the animal is teased or hit by anyone, the one who teases or hits him is responsible for the penalty.

Orders in Case of Dog -Bite:

Amir-ul-Momineen Ali (A) decided the cases of dog-bites as follows:I. The owner is responsible for paying the penalty to the person concerned if his dog bites some one during day time, if at night he is not,because he has the right for the safety of self and the safe-guard of his property by keeping a dog and unchaining him at night. (Wafi vol.3 p. 126). 2. He (A) also declared that if anyone enters the house of the owner of the dog with his permission he is responsible for the bite and the penalty, therefore, is due from him. (Wasael: Wafi, vol. 21, p. 125).

Compensation for Loss by Grazing or Trampling by the Quadrupeds If some farmer sustained a loss by grazing or trampling of his crops by the quadrupeds of another at day he (A.S) did not hold the owner of the quadruped responsible for it and get the farmer compensated therefor. But such a case occurred at night, he held the owner of the quadruped responsible for it, his plea being that the night is meant for rest and the owner of the crop is not responsible for keeping watch over his farms then.
He, therefore, ordered the owners of the quadruped to take care of them at night and compensate the one who had sustained any loss by his carelessness. (Wasael: vol. 3,
p. 493).

Cases of Trampling under the Feet of a Crowd and Loss of Life Thereby

Hazrat Ali (A) declared that in case some person is trampled and killed and the one who trampled and killed him is not traceable the relations of the deceased should be compensated by the Government Treasury. (Wafi, vol. 3. p. 124).

Mistake in Judgement

If some one was sentenced to death by mistake and under the circumstances beyond the control of a Qazi (Judge) and it was later proved that the sentence awarded was wrong, the amount of penalty for the death of the deceased was paid to his inheritors from Govt. treasury under the orders of Hazrat Ali (A).
(Wafi, vol. 21, p. 127).

Penalty for the Eye of a Horse

Some one hit the eye of a horse. Hazrat Ali (A) ordered the accused to pay 1/4 of the price of the horse to the owner. The price was calculated at the prevailing rates on the day
when the horse had lost its eye. (Wafi, vol. 21, p. 130).

Compensation for a Pig

A Muslim killed the pig owned by some Christian. Hazrat Ali (A) ordered the Muslim to pay the penalty therefor to the owner of the pig.

SARKAR WARIS, MEETING WITH THE MAHANT (HINDU MONK)

SARKAR WARIS, MEETING WITH THE MAHANT (HINDU MONK)

When our Saint was camping at Faizabad a mahant (Hindu monk) came to meet him. Our Saint embraced and asked him to sit close by him Impressed by our Saint’s sincerity and gentle manners he said, “Maharaj, favour me with whatever you can give.”

Our saint smilingly asked, “What is the love of asceticism?” The mahant said, “I will accept whatever you favour me, I have come to pay my respect with ardent expectation that my desire would be fulfilled from your charitable rest house.”

Our saint got four tangerines (a kind of small oranges) and giving it to him said, “please depart, we will meet again.” Saluting our Saint he came out, and instead of going home sat there and was so absorbed about something that tears were flowing from his eyes but he was insensible to his actual condition. Learning of the Mahant’s pitiable condition our Saint said, “Mahant, in your love, you have lost your creed and world.” Whereupon the monk declared, “Even if I lose my faith and world I am prepared to forsake my life. But I have one last request, please honour my dwelling with your presence and partake of whatever humble food is available. If not I will set fire to every thing and retire to the jungle.”

Our Saint in a bantering tone said, “from now itself you have begun consigning everything to the flames of fire. It is your desire to take me to your habitation let us go tomorrow.” Hearing this happy news the Mahant made obeisance and took them to his dwelling place where he made them sit in a spacious room spread with an exquisite carpet. He had a similar room decked readily for Sarkar’s servants. Seeing his mansion and elaborate arrangement for a banquet, our saint came to know beside being a religious head he had every convenience to lead a comfortable life. The Mahant’s few Muslim secretaries were ready to cater to our Saint’s wishes with tight waist bands as a mark of respect. At night rich and delicious dishes were spread on the table. Our Saint as usual ate chapattis with broth. At midnight he learnt that the Mahant Saheb sought an interview with him. The Mahant came and after paying respects sat by his side. On seeing a pick -axe in his hands our Saint’s looked at it and the Mahant spoke, “Maharaj this pick-axe ready. Anything that is contrary here to your way of life and habit dig it our or if I am bidden I will uproot it.”

Our Saint said, “The God who is here is Ram. What shall we dismantle and what shall we rebuild again. One who discards the feeling of self he sees everywhere one entity.”

He entreated our Saint to make him his disciple to which he conceded his desire. Once again the Mahant with folded hands begged saying, “Guruji show me some charm for meditation.” Our Saint advising him said, whatever you want, temporal or spiritual do not forger the love of God. Travel for three years with belief and confidence, in God. On the way without any distinction of race and creed visit every temple and mosque and every shrine without bias. Do not fear, we will be with you.”

Next morning the Mahant made his followers, our Saint’s disciples. They were advised according to the capacity and ability or trust by our Saint. Other followers of the Mahant Hindus as well as Muslims joined Sarkar waris’ fold. In the evening our Saint returned to Jaunpur.

THE PROPONENT OF LOVE



THE PROPONENT OF LOVE

Prophet Muhammad taught that the seed of faith is love. This seed of faith is the love of God, His Prophet, love for the people of God and love of all good actions that are loved by Him. He said that no person can be a true believer until he loves him more than anyone in creation. True faith is rooted in love and without it, it cannot grow into a fruitful tree that gives good to everyone around it.

The Prophet himself is characterised by his love for God and the believers. Concerning his love for the believers, God says in the Qur’an: Surely, a (Glorious) Messenger from amongst yourselves has come to you. Your suffering and distress (becomes) grievously heavy on him. (O humankind,) he is ardently desirous of your (betterment and guidance. And) he is most (deeply) clement and merciful to the believers. [Q.9:128.]

अगर सैयद के आमाल व अखलाक ख़राब हों तो क्या हुक्म है? आला हज़रत इमाम अहमद रज़ा क़ादरी फरमाते हैं कि “सैयद सुन्नी मज़हब की ताज़ीम लाज़िम है, अगर्चे उसके आमाल कैसे ही हो इन आमाल के सबब. इससे दूर न रहा जाएगा, नफ्स आमाल से दूर न हो बल्कि इस (सैयद) के मज़हब में भी कुलील फर्क हो कि हद कुफ्र तक न पहुंचे जैसे तफ्सील तो इस हालत में भी इसकी ताज़ीम सयादत न जाएगी, हाँ अगर इसकी बद मज़हबी हद कुफ्र तक पहुंचे जैसे राफजी वहाबी कादयानी नैचरी वगैरहुम, तो अब इसकी ताज़ीम हराम है कि जो वजह ताज़ीम थी यानी सयादत वही न रही। (फतावा रिज़विया 423/22, जदीद)
