Holy Prophet (PBUH) in dream asked Jinnah to lead Muslims

Quaid related his dream to Allama Usmani, Chaudry Fazl-e-Haque quotes Usmani

Islamabad—As against general impression that the Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah had returned to India from London in end 1934 on persuasion by prominent Muslim leaders, the new evidence proves that the Quaid decided to end his self exile after he dreamt of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) who asked him to go to India and lead the Muslims in their struggle for a separate homeland for the Muslims of South Asia.

During an exclusive interview with Pakistan Observer, former Interior Secretary, Chaudry Fazl-e-Haque, talked about some episodes relating to his meetings with Quaid-i-Azam and Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani who were kind to him for his devotion to the cause of Pakistan.

Chaudry Fazl-e-Haque, now in 90s, who had frequent chances to meet with Quaid-i-Azam and Quaid’s very close associate and confidant, Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani, said that Mr Jinnah had told Allama about his dream, in New Delhi when the Pakistan movement had been launched by the Quaid. The Quaid-i-Azam asked Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani not to mention the dream to anyone during his (Quaid’s) life time.

Chaudry Fazl-e-Haque as a great devotee of Quaid-i-Azam would visit him in New Delhi during 1940s when he was also there. The Quaid though living in Bombay visited the Indian Capital during assembly sessions, meetings with viceroy, party conferences and exchanges of views with Congress leaders. The Quaid was kind to him and met him briefly after his breakfast. It was there that he developed his relationship with Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani who also frequently visited the Quaid in the morning before Mr. Jinnah took up his day,s work.

After the emergence of Pakistan, Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani migrated to Karachi where he had the unique honour of unfurling national flag at the ceremony marking the Independence Day in the presence of the Founder of the State. After the demise of Quaid-i-Azam, Chaudry Fazl-e-Haque who was serving the police department in Karachi, had frequent meetings with Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani. During those meetings the main topic was naturally the personality of the Founder of Pakistan. As both the Allama and Chaudry were highly devoted to Quaid-i-Azam, they would fondly recall moments they had the privilege to have spent with him. During one such meeting between the two, the topic was Return of the Quaid to India in 1934 and his assumption of All India Muslim League’s leadership. When Chaudry Fazl-e-Haque talked about people who as common belief had been, motivated Mr. Jinnah to return to India and assume their leadership, Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani spontaneously reacted saying the reality was something else. And then he narrated an episode, that had never been mentioned by anyone. The Allama said that a couple of years before the emergence of Pakistan, he was discussing something with Mr. Jinnah and there was a reference to his return to India in 1934. When Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani mentioned names of the people who he believed had motivated the Quaid to end his exile, Mr. Jinnah said it was not the correct impression. He told Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani about his dream of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and said he had returned to India in 1934 on order by the Prophet (PBUH) he loved most.

Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani quoted the Quaid-i-Azam as saying:

“One evening, I was strolling in the lawn of my house in London when I smelt a unique fragrance. First I thought it was temporary phenomenon but the fragrance continued to prevail in the air. I could not understand as to what was the source of that fragrance. I decided to go to sleep. I could not sleep for quite some time. During sleep I saw a holy personality in my dream. The holy personality addressed me: ‘I am Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). I order you to go to India and lead the Muslims to their destiny. After the dream I awoke and started preparation for my return journey to India’.

Though Founder of Pakistan, Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah outwardly looked to be a Westernized man in terms of life-style, he had deep love for the Prophet (PBUH) and the Muslims of South Asia. That was the reason why he had devoted his life and all to the cause of the Muslims and fought relentlessly to attain rights they had been deprived of.

People who have studied various phases of the Pakistan Movement and political career of Mr. Jinnah or those who have had access to Quaid’s associates, are convinced that the Founder of Pakistan took guidance from the Holy Quran and life of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). This scribe has been meeting with such people including the President, Nazriya Pakistan Council (NPC) Trust to have a better understanding of the Pakistan Movement and personality of the man who had emerged as the Sole Spokesman of the Muslims of the sub-Continent. They all agree that the Quaid’s commitment to the cause of the Muslims had no bounds. This scribe came to know that a former senior bureaucrat Chaudry Fazl-e-Haque, during his youth had chances of meeting the Quaid-i-Azam in New Delhi and also Quaid’s close associate Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani.

The testimony given by Chaudry Fazl-e-Haque clearly shows two facts: One that Quaid-i-Azam took up his mission after he was asked to return to India by the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in dream. This also shows his devotion to the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Two: That Pakistan came into being with the blessing of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

There are several events that indicate Quaid’s love for the Holy Prophet (PBUH). He had selected Lincoln Inn for his study of law in London when he was only a young boy. During the struggle for Pakistan, he on several occasions, stressed that the best role model for the Muslims in every respect is the Holy Prophet (PBUH). He always said that teachings of Islam as provided in the Holy Quran and examplified by life of the Holy Prophet were relevant for all times and climes.

    it cool website

  4. Akbar_sethi says:

    I am proud of My Leader Pakistan Leader Mr Mohammad Ali Jinnah (Late)….

  5. Akbar_sethi says:

    He was A Great Leader….

  6. Arsalansm says:

    I have great respect for the Quaid. But i dont agree with this article at all. He was a perfect example of a secular person who didn’t have much affiliation with the religion. He liked his vodka and wanted a secular Pakistan where everybody could live in Peace. Now we are just an intolerant society who’d kill anybody in the name of religion..if you dont agree then Asia bibi wouldnt have been in jail right now(she didnt kill anybody), and where people wouldnt be killed if they changed their religion..I wish Quaid’s dream comes true one day!!

  7. Llvllr Arham says:

    hey arsalan i am not agree with u but here i want to correct ur some information. he was a perfect example of secularism when he was in congress and he had wish that hindus and muslims will live together that s why people say he was a promoter of secular state, but when he did analysis that these both communities  have totally different way of living then he changed his thinkings. and where its prove that he loved his vodka? NOZUBILLAH non believers also say a lote  word to our PROPHET MUHAMMAD(PBUH) so what does that mean that we will believe on them? when he was making pakistan he had not been thinking that hows future politics will use this beautiful pakistan. whats going on now in pakistan its not JINNAH fault and what happened with BIBI ASIA iits not JINNAH fault. he gave us this country and we need to think how to use this country

    • Arsalansm says:

      I dont blame Jinnah for anything. I actually really adore him for his secularism. I am a very proud Pakistani but i dont hide from ground realities either. What you are saying is straight from a TEXTBOOK hindered by false information. And i cant use the source of Shabbir Usmani either. I don’t see any connection. But anyways, i will let you research on Jinnah liking his vodka and per some accounts, he even ate pork. Again, to me that was his personal choice and I am not gonna judge him from his private life. These accounts are given by people who actually lived with him in Britain and in India unlike this Usmani guy. Easy searchable online and have been published in alotta newspapers by actual researchers. Whatever happens to supposedly blasphemors is ofcourse not Quaids fault but our fault…and whatever happened to Qadianis. You knew there used to be Jews in Pakistan, who now moved to Indian and Israel. Parsis have been moving out so are Christians and Hindus….People can always live together as long as they are not forced to obey the rituals of certain religion. and thats been happening in our country. If we are secular and accept that other people have rights to lve their lives the way they want, thats gonna be the real Pakistan of Quaid..

  8. Msohailahmed says:

    Quaid-e-Azam was clear in his words and practice, whereas concern to the event mentioned above it may be ratified/verified from Allama Shabbir Usamni family because as a Muslim we believe that any thing which has not been said by Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.W) but it is indicate that such belongs to Holy Prophet there is a big sin.  There is no doubt that Pakistan is the greatest blessing/bonty of Allah and as a nation we are not doing our duty well.  Quaid was a great Muslim and now it is the time for us what we are doing for our country and for prosperity and dignity of Pakistan.  Pakistan Zindabad.

  9. Syedamjad_h says:

    The truth can’t be proved by 2 + 2 = 4 it can only be assessed. Quaid (RA) advice to Allama Sahib for not mentioning his dream to any body during his life time is itself a proof, he didn’t wish to claim such a big honor because disclosing the dream might had create some confusions among peoples but now everything is crystal clear, there can’t be any doubt.Tariq bin Ziyad had also a dream wherein Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) had himself informed Tariq that he will be conquerer of Spain thereafter he burnt all his ships because he knew that nothing can prevent him after the prophesy.

  10. Moiez89 says:

    Totally Wrong history information. False article. 

  11. Mutti says:

    Totally fake, drama bazi day dreamers, if reason is that there are muslims in Pakistan then count the muslims in India……………… If you love this country kindly contribute something for future generations come out of past.

  12. Saqibmuzammil says:

    Totally wrong
    1st of all Quaid-e-Azam was a Qadiani and Accept islam after the independence of Pakistan

  13. Imtiazquresh says:

    if some one not belives the sayings of the father of the nation sure he is not Pakistani

  14. Mzadeel says:

    those who have doubts about whether hazrat quaid e azam muhammad ali jinnah was a secular or a faithful muslim and how much he believed islam to be as much practical in personal affairs as in the running of govt and govt institutions… please read the speech of hazrat quaid e azam on the eve of state bank of pakistan inauguration … in which he urges the state bank (the bank of a nation which was ranked as unsustainable at that time) to work and put forth FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD an economic system based on the principles of islam and in which he condemns the present usury-based western economy….. how such a man having not deep seated belief in a thing ask a govt institution to act upon unless he himself believes in it ,,,,
    interested ones will find it on the internet if they want…..
