After Aurangzeb’s death when Muslim power started to disintegrate, a great scholar Shah Waliullah Muhaddith wrote to the Afghan King Ahmad Shah Abdali, inviting him to invade India to help the Muslims. The letter said: In short the Moslem community is in a pitiable condition

All control of the machinery of the government is in the hands of the Hindus because they are the only people who are capable and industrious. Wealth and prosperity are concentrated in their hands, while the share of Moslems is nothing but poverty and misery

At this time you are the only king who is powerful, farsighted and capable of defeating the enemy forces. Certainly it is incumbent upon you to march to India, destroy Maratha domination and rescue weak and old Moslems from the clutches of non-Moslems.

If, Allah forbid, domination by infidels continues, Moslems will forget Islam and within a short time, become such a nation that there will be nothing left to distinguish them from non-Moslems.”“ — Shah Waliullah Dehlawi

غمِ عاشقی پر ائمہ کے اقوال:

ابن جوزی:
"اعتدال تو یہی ہے کہ انسان ایسی بیوی پسند کرے جس کی طرف طبیعت کا میلان تو ہو لیکن عشق کے مرتبہ تک نہ پہنچتا ہو کیونکہ عاشق ہر وقت عذاب میں رہتا ہے ۔ روئے زمین پر عاشق سے بڑا بدبخت کوئ نہیں ۔ تم اس کی آنکھوں کو ہر وقت بہتا دیکھو گے ،
کبھی جدائی کے خوف سے اور کبھی وصال کے شوق میں ۔ اگر محبوب دور ہوتا ہے تو اس کے شوق میں روتا ہے ، قریب ہوتا ہے تو جدائ کے ڈر سے روتا ہے ۔ الغرض وصل کے وقت بھی اس کی آنکھیں جلتی ہیں اور فراق کے وقت بھی۔"
(صید الخاطر لابن الجوزی : 307)
ابن تیمیہ:
بعض دفعہ جدائی کا درد موت سے زیادہ سخت ہوتا ہے۔
(فتاویٰ ابن تیمیہ 35:299)
