Allaah Ta’aala says in the Qur’an – “Innad-Deena ‘indallaahil Islaamo wama-khtalafal lazeena ootul Kitaaba illa min ba’de ma jaa’ahumul ‘ilmo baghyam baynahum wa man-yakfur be-aayatillaahe fa-inallaaha saree’ul Hisaab” (3:19). This particular verse emphasizes about the basic concept of a religion near Allaah Ta’aala. Islam itself means Submission to Allaah Ta’aala. Submission in every sense – physically, financially, mentally and spiritually; and it is Islam that teaches Submission to Allaah in its totality. Let us not be mistaken in taking pride about the name of Islam in the above verse. We need to grasp the essence of the Word Islam – which is Submission to the Supreme authority; and it is the beginning and culmination of Islam.
Islam inculcates Honesty, Conviction, Justice, Forbearance, Gratitude and Trust among its followers. And these attributes are the branches of a single foundation of Submission. It is wrong or a sheer mistake to say that Rasoolullaah SAWS founded Islam. Islam was there in the pure lofty horizons of Angels. Islam was founded in this material world by Maulaana Aadam SA and it continued evolving on the hands of many Prophets who followed him. It attained perfection on the hands of Rasoolullaah SAWS and it won’t undergo any change till the Day of Qeyaamah-The Day of Judgement. Salvation and redemption of Mankind was only possible after acceptance of the message of Allaah sent to it through Prophets of respective times.
Maulaana Aadam SA was born on the island of present day Sri Lanka – better known as Sarandeep in the ancient times. He spent his early life on this auspicious land. He continued to receive spiritual blessings of the Deen of Allaah and His Oneness-Tawheed. The birthplace of Maulaana Aadam SA – Hindustaan was attributed to the name of Hunayd AS, who appointed Maulaana Aadam SA to the rank of Nabi by the Spiritual Decree of Allaah. The birthplace of Maulaana Aadam SA was a vast land divided into three main parts at that time – large mainland as Hunaydistaan (Hind), then two small parts namely Sindh and Yaman – which were interconnected divinely, commercially, culturally, geographically and politically, linguistically in the respective times.
Under the administration of Da’wat e Haadiyah, these three regions are known as separate Jazeerah (islets or islands). The mission of Maulaana Aadam SA – Islam – Deen of Allaah began from this great land of wisdom and piety. Propagating his message, Maulaana Aadam SA along with his selected companions travelled through the mainland Hunaydistaan; and eventually reached Arabia – present day Makkah. 7000 yrs back the message of Islam began from this land by Maulaana Aadam SA and spread throughout the world starting from the peripheral regions of Hunaydistaan. Hunaydistaan became the birthplace of Maulaana Aadam SA and Islam. His mission was to invite people towards Submission to Allaah and Oneness of Allaah. There was no place of idolatory or polytheism.
