QIBLAH FOLLOWER CONCEPT INVALID

Thirdly, the fact of the matter is that the term “facing the Oiblah” in the opinion of the Imams stands for a person who believes in all the essentials of the Islamic faith. If that person denies even a single essential, he certainly becomes a disbeliever, in the light of the unanimous verdict of the Islamic scholars. Anybody who does not call such a person a disbeliever is himself a disbeliever.

Shifa Sharif, Bazaziah, Dar Radd- e-Gharoor, and Fataawa-e-Khairiah and many other books state:

“All the Muslims are unanimously of the view that any person, who shows disrespect to Prophet Muhammad صلى اله عليه وسلم , is a disbeliever. Anybody, who doubts it, is himself a disbeliever”

Majma-ul-Anhar and Durr-e-Mukhtar show as under:

“Any person, who becomes a disbeliever on account of showing disrespect to a Prophet, will not be forgiven; and anybody who doubts his punishment or disbelief is himself a disbeliever”

Allah be praised! This is an important aspect of this topic and the entire Muslim community is unanimous that these insolent people are disbelievers; he, who does not consider them as disbelievers, is himself a disbeliever. It is mentioned in the commentary on Fiqah Akbar:- “The correct approaches include this that the followers of Qiblah will not be called disbelievers, unless they refuse to accept the essential requirements of faith; for instance treating forbidden (Haraam) as allowed (Halaal). It is no secret that our scholars, when they say that the followers of Qiblah should not be classified as disbelievers, do not mean just turn- ing one’s face towards the Qiblah. The Aafizi people falsely say that Gabriel made a mistake in conveying the revelations; Allah had sent him towards Hazrat Ali and not Prophet Muhammad صلى اله عليه وسلم  . Some of them treat Hazrat Ali radi allahu anhu as Allah. These people, though they pray with their faces towards the Qiblah, are not Muslims. This Hadith also has a similar meaning, which says that he, who prays like us, turns his face towards our Qiblah, and eats the animals slaughtered by us, is a Muslim”.

ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS NECESSARY

It means that such a person must believe in the essential requirements of the Islamic faith, and he should not do anything against the spirit of the faith. In the same book we come across this statement:

“That is to say, it is an agreed view of the Islamic scholars that a person who violates the essential requirements of Islam is a disbeliever, though he may be a follower of the Qiblah and he may spend his entire life in performing the acts of obedience, as has been stated in Sharah-E- Tahreer by Imam Ibnul Hammam.”

The books of Islamic belief, law and principles are full of clear directives and details on this point.

DISRESPECT TO ALLAH AND HIS PROPHET صلى اله عليه وسلم IS WORSE THAN IDOL WORSHIP

Fourthly, this subject has its own plain logic. Can a person, who offers prayers five times a day with his face towards the Qiblah and worships Maha Dev once a day, be regarded by any sensible person to be a Muslim? The action of worshipday Maha Dev and the action of calling Allah a liar or insulting the Prophet are equally the acts of disbelief but the acts of disrespecting Allah and His Prophet are definitely more serious than worshipping Maha Dev. ‘Some acts of disbelief are worse than others’. The reason is that worshipping an idol is a symbolic denial of Allah, but this symbolic denial, is not equal to the actual denial. Moreover, prostration (sadja) before an idol can be possibly given a rational explanation that it may have been just an act of respect and not an act of worship. Any act of respect done in the form of prostration (sadja), is not an act of disbelief in itself. For example, if a person comes before a scholar or a spiritual leader and prostrates before him as a mark of respect, he win be judged as a sinner but not a disbeliever. The Islamic law has condemned idoIatory by the non-Muslims as disbelief because it falls into a pattern of disbelief in their life-style. On the contrary, talking ill of Prophet Muhammad صلى اله عليه وسلم is in itself a disbelief, which leaves no chance of Islamic belief left in this case. I am not relying here basically on the difference that the Islamic community can by its unanimous decision forgive a worshipper of an idol but even one thousand Imams cannot and would not forgive a person, who talks ill of the Prophet of  Islam صلى اله عليه وسلم .

Our Hanafi scholars of distinction like Imam Bazazi, Imam Ibnul Hammam, Allama Maula Khasrau author of Dar Radd-E-Gharoor, Allama Zain bin Najeem auttKJr of Bahrar Raaiq and Ishbah Wan-N-Nazaair, Allama Umar bin Najeem auttKJr of Naharul Faaiq, Allama Abu, Abdullah Muhammad bin Abdullah Ghazi author of Tanveer-ul-Absaar, Allama Khairuddin Ramli author of Fataawa Khairiyya, Allama Shaikh-Zada author of Majma-ul-Anher, Allama Mudaqaq Muhammad Ali Haskafi author of Durr-E- Mukhtar and many other prominent scholars have held this view. (For further details and discussion on this point see my book “Fataawa-E-Rizwiyah”).
It should be understood that the inability to forgive is limited to the court of an Islamic ruler, because he has to pronounce death sentence even after hearing the plea of forgiveness. On the other hand, if somebody seeks forgiveness sincerely and heartily it is acceptable in the court of Allah. There is a danger that these insolent people may put up an excuse that there is no point is seeking forgiveness because it cannot be granted. The correct positon is that the disbelief will be obliterated; you will become a Muslim and get rid of the eternal confinement to Hell. To this extent there is unanimity amongst the Islamic scholars (see Rudd-ul Mukhtar and other books).

AN ILLOGICAL ARGUMENT

The third fraudulent argument of this disbelieving group is that the Islamic law states that a person, who has 99 things of disbelief and one thing of Islam in his personality, should not be labelled as a disbeliever. Firstly, this flimsy argument is the worst and the weakest of all. If a person gives a call to prayer or performs a prayer of two-Rakah once in the day and worships the idols, blows the clarions or rings the bells in the remaining part of the day for 99 times, he is by this definition a Muslim. Such a person is not a man of faith. Let alone faith, such a person cannot be described as a Muslim by a sensible man.

Secondly, in the light of this definition except the atheists, who deny the very existence of Allah, all other disbelievers, like Hindus, Christians, Jews etc, will have to be described as Muslims. They have one thing in common; they all believe in the existence of Allah. This one thing is one of the most important principles in Islam. The philosophically-inlined disbelievers, or Aryans or similar other people have their own concepts of the unity of, Allah. The Jews and Christians will have to be regarded as very distinguished Muslims because in addition to the unity of Allah they also believe in many of His Scriptures, thousands of His Prophets, the Dooms-day, accountability on the final Day of Judgement, reward, and punishment, Heaven and Hell etc, most of these doctrines being in conformity with Islam.

NADWA REFORMER

Thirdly, the verses of the Holy Quran which have been quoted above, are enough to refute this argument. It has been proved by these verses that despite reading the Kalima or offering prayers these insolent people are disbelievers. At one place Allah said “They have become disbelievers after embracing Islam, because they have made a particular statement.” At another place Allah has said: “Make no excuses; you have become disbelievers after embracing Islam”. According to this flimsy argument there should be more than 99 words of disbelief but Allah has declared them as disbelievers for only one word of disbelief. Perhaps the insolent people will answer that this is a mistake of Allah or He has been too hasty in restricting the sphere of Islam. They would blame that the followers of Qiblah and the readers of Kalima are being pushed out of Islam just for saying one word, and that they have not been given even the chance of making an excuse. Also Allah did not consult some worshipper of nature or a lecturer from Nadwa or some other liberal Islamic reformer of their persuasion. “May the curse of Allah fall on the wrongdoers.” Fourthly, the answer to this argument is:

CHARGE AGAINST ISLAMIC SCHOLARS

Fifthly, as a matter of fact these insolent people have levelled this baseless charge against the Islamic scholars. The experts of the Islamic law have never given such a decision. The insolent people have acted like the Jews and changed the meanings by interpreting the statement out of its context. “The Jews change and interpret a statement out of Its context,” says the Quran. The experts of law have not said that a man who has 99 acts of disbelief and one ad of Islam in his character is a Muslim. 0 Allah we seek your refuge from such a dreadful mischief! The truth, on the other hand, is that the entire Muslim community is agreed on the point that a person who has in his balance-sheet 99 000 statements of Islam and one statement of disbelief is certainly and absolutely a disbeliever. In 99 drops of rose-water if you put one drop of urine, it will all become urine. But these ignorant people say that if you put one drop of rose-water into 99 drops of urine, the whole mixture will become pious and pure impossible. Let alone the Islamic scholars, even an ordinary sensible man cannot make such a silly statement. Actually the experts of lslamic law have said that if a Muslim uses a word which has one hundred possible shades of meaning, and 99 shades of meaning go towards disbelief and one comes towards Islam, it would be fair not to call him a disbeliever, until it is proved that his intention was to express some shade of disbelief through this world.The logic behind this statement appeals to common sense. The experts want to give this Muslim the benefit of the doubt. At least, there is one shade of opinion which is Islamic. 1t is quite possible that he might have intended this one, and this view would go in his favour. However they have already made it clear that, if his intention was based on disbelief, in Allah’s decision he will be a disbeliever. Let us take an example. If Zaid says “Amar possesses knowledge of the unseen definitely.’. This statement has the following possible shades of meaning:

Owaise radi allahu anhu of Qarni.

About Sohail Yemeni, the prophet salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam says that he is superior to his followers due to his kindness and favor. When there is praise by the prophet salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam then what else can I describe about him. Sometimes the prophet salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam used to turn his face towards Yemen and said, “I feel the breeze of love from the Yemen.” the prophet salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam told on the day of judgment that Allah azzawajal will create 70,000 angels same as Owaise radi allahu anhu of Qarni (clone) and when Owaise radi allahu anhu of Qarni will come there in between them and will proceed to the heaven, no one will recognize him except Allah azzawajal, because in the world he used to worship away from the mankind and so he will be kept away from the mankind on the day of judgment. It is mentioned that the friends of Allah azzawajal will be kept hidden by him, so no one will be able to see them. On the day of judgment the prophet salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam will come out of his palace and will say, “ where is Owaise radi allahu anhu, so that I can see him.” soon there will be a call in which it will be heard that do not worry in this matter, you will not see him here as you did not see him in the world.

The prophet salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam told
