The first step in Islamic legislation was a resolution aimed at enabling Muslims, individually and collectively, to live their lives in accordance with Islamic teachings and requirements. The Islamic Ideological Council was established to make this ideology a reality. Under Article 230 of the 1973 Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the Council was responsible for giving opinions to the Majlis-e-Shura and the Provincial Assembly, under which Muslims could lead their individual and collective lives in accordance with Islam. It is also the responsibility of the Council to weigh the existing laws in the scales of Islamic law, which the Council is fulfilling to the best of its ability. And a general review of the council's performance shows that the council has made more than 6,500 recommendations so far and more than 90 recommendations have been implemented.

He has called for peace and order at every level and place. The religion of Islam teaches the establishment of a society in which not only the Muslims have peace and order of life and property and dignity but also the lives and property of non-Muslims living in it are protected.

It aims to present the hadiths contained in it, determine the degree of their correctness and incorrectness, and attain the Qur’anic benefits from them to raise people’s awareness of the dangers of publishing hadiths Maudou or incorrect about Surat Al-Waqi’ah, clarify the consequences of indifference in that, and explain the degrees of hadiths mentioned in the matter of the Surah to be aware of it. Thus, this will contribute to limiting the dissemination of incorrect hadiths about the surahs of the Qur’an, including Surat al-Waqi’ah.

One of them has a very clear meaning (<em>Muhkamat</em>) and the others are likely to have more than one meaning (<em>Mutashaihat</em>). Therefore, there is a huge difference amongst the commentators about the meaning and explanations of these verses. It is the need of time to study thoroughly about the sayings of commentators, their reasons of differences, the way forward for their solution and the principles on which these differences are based upon. Moreover, there is disagreement among scholars upon what is the reality of those verses and on the basis of what rules and principles can these statements be applied or prioritized?&nbsp; The verses in which the commentators differ the most are related to the doctrine of theology, (<em>Ilahiyat</em>) prophecy (<em>Nabuwat</em>), and <em>samiy'at</em>.</p> <p>Therefore, in this article we have critically examined the reality of the differences between the commentators on these three issues. However, due to the Expansion of the subject, we have limited the scope of study to only <em>Surah Al-baqarah</em>.</p> 2021-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## A Critical Study of the objections of Orientalists in the Hadiths of the Prophet (SWS): in the light of the“Takmila e Fath ul-Mulhim” by Sheikh Muhammad Taqi Usmani 2022-01-22T21:43:26+00:00 Dr. Noor ul Haq Dr. Saeed ul Haq Dr. Muhammad Fayyaz <p>Orientalists have done the most work on objections to Islamic teachings.
