Abstract

Secularism is a western term which means a complete separation of all political and other matters of the state from religion. Secularism is not against religion but it declares all the moral and revealed values as a private affair of a man's life. Maulana Abdul Majid Daryabadi, a renowned religious scholar, is not in favour of secular thoughts. He is of the view that Islam must have a supreme status. In his strong opinion, religion is the very breath of life, it matters above everything; it is the mainspring of a Muslim’s conduct. A person with secular thoughts wants solution of every matter of the state according to human reason. All the political, economic and social issues should be solved in the light of human experiences. But Maulana strongly declares that creature must seek guidance from the Creator who knows His creation best. He says that Islam calls for the complete transformation of personality; and convert to Islam must be renewed in every corner of his being.
