Dating fatwa definition
Non-Vedics consider these Rishis to be authors instead of researchers of Vedic mantras.)Disclaimer: By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings.We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape.They however forget in their enthusiasm that by doing this, they are digging their own graves.Because this would imply that claims of their own Islamic scholars are wrong and destroy the very foundation of Islam.This very act of his proves that he regards Vedas as authoritative first divine texts.This attempt of Zakir is not his original but directly copy-pasted – word to word – from works of the famous Qadiyani scholar Maulana Abdul Haque Vidyarthi.Let us start with scrutiny of the claim that “All mantras have a Rishi who is basically the person who wrote that mantra”.(To understand this concept, please note that the original Veda Samhitas do not contain name of any Rishi etc. However, traditionally each Vedic sukta (hymn) is associated with one or more Rishis who are supposed to be among the first persons to have introspected on those hymns.The book ‘Sarvaanukramanika’ or ‘Sarvanukramani’ by Katyayana is considered to be the prime basis of names of these Rishis (apart from a few other Anukramanis).
The basic foundation of this claim of Rishis being authors of mantras is presence of word ‘Mantrakarta’ or its root in various forms. However we shall begin with some logical as well as historical evidences that clearly imply that Rishis cannot be considered authors or creators of the Vedic mantras.
What we would attempt in this article is to explain why Vedas cannot be considered as creation of Rishis as alleged first by atheists/ communists and now by neo-Muslim apologetics. On contrary, as one proceeds ahead in pursuit of truth to best of his understanding, further path would be clearer and Ishwar would give him the best results he deserves.
Now the question that would come next is – We believe this question to be on same pedestal as “Who created life? This is the fundamental difference between Vedic ideology and other dogmatic ideologies.
We would request them to first issue fatwa against those Muslim scholars who use Vedas to prove Muhammad in them or admit them to be first holy texts. etc etc.”These are serious questions for introspection and analysis. However, in spirit of Vedas, each of us has the liberty to explore and believe in whatever appears most reasonable to him or her after his or her most sincere understanding.
And next, they should demonstrate the same objectivity towards their own modern Quran. So even if someone refuses to agree to our viewpoints and arguments, that does not mean Vedas throw that person into some hellfire and would give us sweet grapes to eat in some Heaven.
