Books – Religious Mindset
Author – Sajal Roshan
Many people have commented on my review of Mizanur Rahman Azhari’s ‘Massage’ in ‘Bookstore’s Hangout’. Some have supported, some have opposed. In fact, the citizens of this country grew up in a religious environment. But most of them do not take the opportunity to open the Qur’an whether the religious atmosphere is in accordance with the Qur’an or not. Meanwhile, Bangladeshis living in European and American countries are in almost the same situation. While living in the country, although they are awakened by the desire to analyze the religious or social customs a little impartially, then when they go to Europe-America, it slowly disappears with the wind like camphor. Then they became very conscious Bangladeshis. They don’t even want to think about the good or bad of the country anymore, they just go through ‘blind support’ in everything. At least Mr. Sajal Roshan, the author of the book ‘Religious Mindset’, seems to be different from that type of people. He thinks about the country, he thinks about the good and bad of the country, he thinks about the real believers of this country, and he also has a lot of experience-complaints about the superstitious people.
Mr. Sajal Roshan has studied in Madrasa and also in Dhaka Alia Madrasa; After that he moved to New York with a certificate from the Department of International Relations of Dhaka University. From there, he is trying to shed light on the issue of whether the Qur’an has anything to do with the conventional religions in the world or where the Qur’an is in the conventional religions! The text of his lectures is the book ‘Religious Mindset’, which was once a bestseller in Rokmari. However, shortly after its publication, Rokmari stopped selling the book for no apparent reason. However, the readers of the book have realized that Mr. Sajal Roshan’s book ‘Rokmari’ was removed from their website in the face of the protests of those who are practicing religion by defaming the name of the Qur’an.
The book is originally written for those people who, contrary to the simple instructions of the Qur’an, have been swallowed up by thousands of fabricated words. On the cover of the book, the author writes, ‘In this book, in the light of the Holy Quran, we have tried to highlight various inconsistencies in our daily religious practice. We observe as a religion some customs which are not related to the principles of the Qur’an (faith and good deeds) and are not important in the society. By following the extremism in establishing the so-called religious doctrine of an individual or a group, we have made religion an unworthy cover. ‘
The 336-page book has 40 chapters. Each chapter contains a call to abandon the conventional meditative ideas and return to the simple words of the Qur’an. The author did not say that one should know Islam by reading Omuk’s book, one should know Islam by following Tamuk, this group should follow Islam by that group; On the contrary, it says the same thing, so that the reader understands the word of God directly from the Qur’an, without any other means. Only then will it be seen that the Qur’an never teaches extremism, nor does it instruct anyone to harass others.
Let’s look at page 143 of the book ‘Religious Mindset’.
In verse 96 of Surah Tawba, Allah says:
“The Arabs are harder on disbelief and hypocrisy.”
Sajal Roshan did not obscure the original meaning of the verse by translating the Arabic word ‘Bedouin’ here. So the ‘nature’ of the Arabs is described in the Qur’an by the great Creator.
In the translation of verse 103 of Surah An-Nisa ‘, he wrote,
Indeed, Salat upon the believers is a book that is scheduled. ‘Kitaban Maukuta’ means Scheduled book. But in most Qur’anic translations the word ‘Kitaban’ has been omitted.
The reader can easily understand that here ‘Kitaban Maukutan’ i.e. Scheduled book is the Qur’an; Even then the author simply explained it by discussing more. That is, Salat is a book about the believers which is determined by time. That is, one should recite only from the Qur’an while praying at the time prescribed by Allah.
‘Salamun Alaikum’ to Mr. Sajal Roshan for highlighting such issues through a beautiful presentation. In short, after reading the book, every reader will want to go beyond all kinds of bigotry and understand only the Qur’an.
That is why, in the words of Mr. Sajal Roshan, “this book will revolutionize the thinking of Muslims, non-Muslims, secularists and even atheists about the main do’s and don’ts of Islam.”
