Sons of Imran

The names of Imran Khan’s son are surprisingly significant. Being sons of one of the wealthiest women in England and a father of western-educated Muslim celebrity named them, Suleman Khan and Qasim Khan. Imran comes from a modern yet progressive family, with a background of traditional Islamic practices. Western-educated so-called modern Muslims generally prefer the latest type of synthetic names or names with their heritage linkage along with a Muslim name. That is why we find a lot of Tung, Chowhan, Gondal, Bhutto, Chengegy, Bilawal, Shawrav, parosh, Bishad, Nishad, and so many others. Once the angels ask questions to the soul to take account of a newly buried person, these people will create a big problem for the angels. Once the soul responds that his name is Mohammad Krishna Gonzalez, those angels will be confused about how to treat that poor soul. A Muslim? a Hindu? a Christian? This is an example of a pure synthetic name; some Muslim parents prefer to name their newborn babies as such these days. A golden saying is: 'worst possible handicap of a human being is a bad attitude,' this is also one of the handicaps that we Muslims are suffering from. Out of multi-dimensional faith-based delusion and drifts (handicaps), synthetic or non-Muslim names are on the rise in Islamic society.

According to Hadith, we are told by our prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wassallam to keep good meaningful names for newborn babies as the name has an influence and impact on an individual's character (Sunan Abu Daud Hadees Shareef number 2736). Keeping that in view, Muslims generally prefer to keep their baby’s name following the name of Sahaba Ekram Radiallahu Taala Anhu, Tabeyeen, or Tabe-Tabeyeen. Besides, names are kept following the names of famous battlefield commanders or of popular benevolent and successful leaders. No doubt that the future mothers of the Muslim world will prefer to keep the name of their newborn baby boy as Imran Khan, due to his extraordinary popularity and extraordinary contribution to the people of Pakistan. In a similar context, future true Muslim parents will never keep the names of their newborn baby as Mir Jafar or Qamar Javed Bajwa.

Let us now look at the names of Imran Khan’s sons: Suleman Khan and Qasim Khan. Let us find what Wikipedia has to say about Suleman, who is also known as Solomon or Sulaiman in history.

" Sulaimān ibn Dāwūd (Arabic: سُلَيْمَان بْن دَاوُوْد, lit. 'Solomon, son of David') was, according to the Quran, a malik (مَلِك, lit. 'king') and nabī (نَبِيّ, lit. 'prophet') of the Israelites. Generally, Islamic tradition holds that he was the third king of the Jewish people and a wise ruler of Israel.[1]

In Islam, Solomon is regarded as one of the prophets of God who was bestowed with many divine gifts, including the ability to speak to both animals and jinn; he is also said to have enslaved the shayāṭīn (شياطين, lit. 'devils') and the dīv (دیو, lit. 'demons') with the support of a staff given to him by God.[2]. Muslims further maintains that he remained a faithful monotheist throughout his life; reigned justly over the whole of the Israelite nation; was blessed with a level of kingship that was given to none before him nor after him; and fulfilled all of his commandments, being promised nearness to God in Jannah (جَنّة, lit. 'Paradise') at the end of his life.[3] Since the rise of Islam, various Arab historians have regarded Solomon as one of the greatest rulers in history.[4] "

He was one of the Prophets of Allah Pak and a man of prolific personality, the most successful ruler in history accepted and followed by Muslims and non-Muslims alike. The other Suleiman was a famous Ottoman Khalifa (King) who conducted several successful campaigns against Christian powers during his time. Let us find what Wikipedia has to say about this Suleman:

" Suleiman I (Ottoman Turkish: سليمان اول, romanized: Süleyman-ı Evvel; Turkish: I. Süleyman; 6 November 1494 – 6 September 1566), commonly known as Suleiman the Magnificent in the West and Suleiman the Lawgiver (Ottoman Turkish: قانونى سلطان سليمان, romanized: Ḳānūnī Sulṭān Süleymān) in his realm, was the tenth and longest-reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1520 until he died in 1566.[2]: 541–45  Under his administration, the Ottoman Empire ruled over at least 25 million people. Suleiman succeeded his father, Selim I, as sultan on 30 September 1520 and began his reign with campaigns against the Christian powers in central Europe and the Mediterranean. Belgrade fell to him in 1521 and the island of Rhodes in 1522–23. At Mohács in August 1526, Suleiman broke the military strength of Hungary. Suleiman became a prominent monarch of 16th-century Europe, presiding over the apex of the Ottoman Empire's economic, military and political power. Suleiman personally led Ottoman armies in conquering the Christian strongholds of Belgrade and Rhodes, as well as most of Hungary, before his conquests were checked at the siege of Vienna in 1529. He annexed much of the Middle East in his conflict with the Safavids and large areas of North Africa as far west as Algeria. Under his rule, the Ottoman fleet dominated the seas from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and through the Persian Gulf.[4]: 61 . At the helm of an expanding empire, Suleiman personally instituted major judicial changes relating to society, education, taxation, and criminal law. His reforms, carried out in conjunction with the empire's chief judicial official Ebussuud Efendi, harmonized the relationship between the two forms of Ottoman law: sultanic (Kanun) and religious (Sharia).[5] He was a distinguished poet and goldsmith; he also became a great patron of culture, overseeing the "Golden" age of the Ottoman Empire in its artistic, literary and architectural excellence. “

Let us analyze the name of his other son, Qasim Khan. Muhammad ibn al-Qasim invaded the Indian sub-continent at the age of 17 years. Muslim leaders of that time realized the necessity of a military academy to produce young military leaders for future battlefields. Muhammad ibn al-Qasim came out as the best cadet of his course from Basra military academy, established by Hazzaz Bin Yousuf. Let us see what Wikipedia has to say about this young heartthrob Muslim military commander :

"Muḥammad ibn al-Qāsim al-Thaqāfī (Arabic: محمد بن القاسم الثقفي; 31 December 695–18 July 715) was an Arab military commander in service of the Umayyad Caliphate who led the Muslim conquest of Sindh (part of modern Pakistan), inaugurating the Umayyad campaigns in India. His military exploits led to the establishment of the Islamic province of Sindh, and the takeover of the region from the Sindhi Brahman dynasty and its ruler, Raja Dahir, who was subsequently decapitated with his head sent to al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf in Basra. With the capture of the then-capital of Aror by Arab forces, Muhammad ibn al-Qasim became the first Muslim to have successfully captured Hindu land, which marked the beginning of Muslim rule in India. Muhammad ibn al-Qasim belonged to the Banu Thaqif, an Arab tribe that is concentrated around the city of Taif in western Arabia. After the Muslim conquest of Persia, he was assigned as the governor of Fars, likely succeeding his uncle Muhammad ibn Yusuf al-Thaqafi. From 708 to 711, Muhammad ibn al-Qasim led the Sindh conquest. He established Islamic rule throughout the region, serving as governor of Sindh from 712 until his death in 715. He died in Mosul, in modern Iraq, though some sources[who?] recorded that his body was buried in Makran, a semi-desert coastal region in Balochistan. “

Imran Khan probably dreamt his sons to contribute to Deen Islam the way Muslim leaders of their names could contribute during the golden era of Islam. It is quite perplexing to imagine how he being a western-educated Muslim; a flamboyant and playboy celebrity, could decide to keep such motivating and inspirational names for his sons. That too when he had a wife with Jewish background? It makes us difficult to fathom his depth of faith in Islam. He has left the comfort of billion dollar asset in the UK and decided to take hard life to give Haqeeqi (real) Azadi (freedom) to the people of Pakistan. Imran Khan is a patriot first, then a politician, but his opponents are politicians first, then a bunch of traitors. After 22 long years of struggle, he could clarify his position to the people of Pakistan. He has sufficiently proved by his lifetime that he is not an average Muslim but a serious Muslim by heart, not only by his action as a political leader but keeping such a thoughtful name for his sons. May Allah Pak bless Imran Khan, his sons, and the people of Pakistan.
