How can you claim that? May I know your age? Unless you can prove that you were present at the time and place of Imam handing over the 'office' to the dai, your next post should be read with caution.Originally posted by Final Destination:
the Imam is not present physically with us and so his Da'i is holding the office.
Raza – Read Holy Quran, Surah Al Araf, Ayat 19 (7:19) – It clearly mentions that Adam did not have the permission to approach the tree.
Baraat – Read Holy Quran, Surah Ash Shuara, Ayat 171 (26:171) – It mentions how Prophet Lut was commanded to take away all family members but leave an old woman (his wife) behind and who perished with the town. Read Holy Quran, Surat Al-Mumtahanah, Ayat 1 (60:1) – Allah warns not to take enemies as friends and offer love even though they have rejected the truth.
And lo! We accepted your solemn pledge that you would not shed one another's blood, and would not drive one another from your homelands - whereupon you acknowledged it; and thereto you bear witness [even now].
The covenant of Allah doesn't involve any intermediary. A muslim is expected to follow the Quran. Allah knows what is in the heart. He doesn't need a piece of paper. A person who accepts Islam, signs a covenant directly with Allah to obey the commands in the Quran. There is no need to sign a covenant with a Dai.
