Author: Sir Muhammad Zafarullah Khan
Description: This book provides a translation by Sir Muhammad Zafarullah Khan of the Riyad as-Salihin, literally "Gardens of the Rightous", written by the Syrian Shafi'i scholar Muhyi ad-din Abu Zakariyya' Yahya b. Sharaf an-Nawawi (1233-78), who was the author of a large number of legal and biographical work, including celebrated collection of forty well-known hadiths, the Kitab al-Arba'in (actually containing some forty three traditions.), much commented upon in the Muslim countries and translated into several European languages. His Riyad as-Salihin is a concise collection of traditions, which has been printed on various occasions, e.g. at Mecca and Cairo, but never before translated into a western language. Hence the present translation by Muhammad Zafarullah Khan will make available to those unversed in Arabic one of the most typical and widely-known collection of this type.

Recommendations

3. Recommendations

The Mission recommends that:

a.
Removal of Discriminatory Laws and Constitutional Provisions;
Ordinance XX and the blasphemy laws should be amended in order to prevent their misuse and to enable all religious communities, including Ahmadis, to exercise their right to freedom of religion on a footing of equality and without the risk of persecution and prosecution. If that is politically unachievable at this time we recommend that gradual amendments and repeals to the law be achieved over a reasonable time. Incremental changes are to be preferred to no change.
b.
the police, prosecutors and judges receive training in human rights and religious tolerance.
c.
the independence of the prosecution is strengthened and that prosecutors abide by a new Code of Conduct introducing two tests to be passed before a prosecution is supported in court:
1.
Sufficient admissible evidence available to ensure the prospect of a conviction is more than 50%.
2.
A public interest test tailored to the situation prevailing in Pakistan but excluding any consideration of the reactions of religious extremists.
d.
court cases be subject to strict timetables and that there are time limits on those periods of custody a person is denied bail and that there is a presumption in favour of bail.
e.
prosecutions be brought against those who incite violence against persons on account of their different religious faith or sect.
f.
prosecutions be brought against persons who lay false allegations of violations of the blasphemy law.
