Did the Wahabis exist in the time of the Khulafa al-Rashidin? Al Malfuz Al Sharif Vol 1

Masjid Al Nabawi Al Malfuz Al Sharif Vol 1 – Anecdotes of AlaHadrat, Imam Ahmad Rida Khan عليه الرحمة (A Must Read & Share)

Question: Did the Wahabis exist in the time of the Khulafa al-Rashidin?

Answer: It was this very sect that Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ requested permission from Amir al-Mu‘minin Sayyidina “Ali al-Murtadah رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ to confront. They were 10,000 in number. Amir al-Mu’minin رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ granted him permission and he went to them and asked, “What was it about Amir al Mu‘minin that you so strongly disagree with?” They replied, “Why did the Amir appoint Sayyiduna Abu Musa Ash‘ari رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ as a judge (Hakam) In the event of Siffin?” This is Shirk, because Allah عزوجل states in the Qur’an:

Judgement is from none, but Allah عزوجل. – [Surah Yusuf, Verse 40]

Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Abbas رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ replied , “Is it not in the very same Qur’an that Allah عزوجل states: Read the rest of this entry »

Except for the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah, all other groups are people of Hell (Part 1)

Madina MunawwarahConcept of Unity in Islam

Unity is one of the strongest values of Islam, proven by both the Holy Quran and the teaching of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. However, there are some who don’t understand this concept and say in their ignorance that all people who read the Kalima are part of the Muslim Ummah and are brothers in Islam. How can this be?

The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

“Stay away from those astray from the deen and keep them away lest they put you in fitna and make you astray as well.” — Muslim, Vol. 1, Pg. 10; Mishkaat, Vol. 1, Pg. 20

Didn’t Musailma Kazzab read the Kalima but also claim to be a prophet after our beloved master, Muhammad Mustapha صلى الله عليه وسلم ? Didn’t Ghulam Ahmed Qadiyani (another reciter of the Kalima) say the same a few years back? Is he our Mu’min brother too? Shias profess the Kalima but say that the Quran is incomplete. Do we embrace them with open arms as believers? When the answer to these questions is “No, they are not Muslims”, why is reciting the Kalima made to be the criteria of unity? Mere lip-service of the Kalima doesn’t suffice for unity. Rather, having faith and conviction on all the dimensions of Tauheed (the Oneness of Allah Almighty) and Risaalat (Prophethood of the Beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم) is its foundation.

Except for the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah, all other groups are people of Hell (Part 2)

Madina MunawwarahThis is My Straight Path, so follow it.

[Surah Al-An’aam 6, Verse 153] “And that, ‘This is My Straight Path, so follow it; and do not follow other ways for they will sever you from His way; this is commanded to you, so that you may attain piety.’ ”

Mufassireen say in the commentary of this verse on the accord of the following Hadith narrated by the great Sahabi Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ :

(Ibn Hibbaan in His Sahih Vol. 1, p. 181, Hadeeth No. 6; Imam Nasaai in his Sunan Kubra Vol. 6, p. 343, Hadeeth No. 11174; Imam Baghwi in his Sharhus Sunnah, Baab al-I’tisaam; Imam Bazzaar in his Musnad, Hadeeth No. 1694; Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal in his Musnad Hadeeth No. 4142; Daarimi in his Sunan Vol. 1, p. 78, Hadeeth No. 202; Imam Abu Dawood Tiyalisi in his Musnad Vol. 1, p. 33, Hadeeth No. 244; Marwazi in his Sunnah; Imam Hakim in his Mustadrak ‘Alas Saheehain. He said this is a Sahih chained Hadeeth Vol. 2, p. 349, Hadeeth No. 3241; Imam Dhahbi in its annotations agrees that it is a Sahih Hadeeth; Ibn ‘Aasim in his book Al-Sunnah; Ibn Batta in his book Al-Ibaanatul Kubra and also in his book Al-Sughra; Al-Ajurri in his book al-Shariah; Imam Al-La’lakaai in his book Sharhus Sunnah and even nasiruddeen albaani authenticated this Hadeeth.)

Except for the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah, all other groups are people of Hell (Part 3)

Madina MunawwarahOpinions of the Salf-e-Saliheen (our great pious predecessors) on Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah

Hadrat Sayyiduna Shaykh Abd’al-Qadir al-Jilani عليه الرحمة says in his famous book Ghuniyya-t at-Talibeen “There are 73 groups as foretold by Sayyadina Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم. The group which will be saved from the fire of Hell is the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah.”

“The Believer should adapt himself to the Sunnah and to the Jama’ah. The Sunnah is the way shown by Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم. The Jama’ah is composed of the things done unanimously by the Sahaba al-Kiram who lived in the time of the four caliphs called Khulafa’ ar-Rashidin (and others in their path). A Muslim must prevent the multiplication of the men of bid’ah and keep away from them, and should not greet them (as given in many Hadith on this issue). Ahmad ibn Hanbal (Radi Allahu ta’ala anhu), the Imam of our Madhhab, said that greeting a man of bid’ah meant loving him since it had been declared in a Hadith, ‘Disseminate (your) greeting (salaam)! Love one another in this way!” He also said (pg. 143): “The title, Ahlus-Sunnah, which the innovators have expressed for themselves is not appropriate for them”.

A humble appeal of AlaHazrat radi Allah anhu to Muslim brethren

Madina MunawwaraIn the introduction of the book Tamheed E Iman (The Preamble to Faith) AlaHazrat radi Allah ‘anhu humbly appeals to Muslim brethren:

My dear brothers! As-salāmu álaykum wa raĥmatu’llāhi wa barakātuh. May Allāh azza wajal keep you, and for your sakes, this poor sinner, steadfast upon true faith and grant us the true love of His beloved, the last messenger Sayyidunā Muĥammad ﷺ and infuse his reverence and respect in our hearts; and that we be in that state until our last breath. Āmīn, O Lord of the Universe!

Your Lord Almighty azza wajal says:

O Messenger! Verily, We have sent you as a witness, and a harbinger and a warner. So that, [O people!] you may bear faith in Allāh and His messenger; and that you revere him and respect him, and that you sanctify your Lord in the morning and evening. [Sūrah Al-Fatĥ, 48:8-9]

O Muslims! Notice that the reasons for which the religion was given, and the Qur’ān was revealed are three, as mentioned in the above verse:

First, that people bear faith in Allāh and His Messenger ﷺ
Second, that people revere and respect the Messenger ﷺ and
Third, that they worship Allāh azza wajal.

O Muslims! Notice the elegant order of these three important principles. Faith (1) is mentioned first and worship of the Lord Almighty is mentioned in the last; and in between these two, is the reverence and honor of His beloved Prophet ﷺ.

A Call For Justice by Hazrat ‘Allama Maulana Arshadul Qadri rehmatullahi alaih

Allah – In The Name Of The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

This book is written for all of those:

  • Who sincerely want to understand the differences between the scholars of the Ahle Sunnah School and the scholars of the Deobandi School and who wish to remove the real obstacles towards unification.
  • Who in their private meetings, address these serious and principled differences as (1) a deceit of the Maulvis, (2) a means of making money, (3) a way of making a living etc., – and who receive applause from the people, for expressing such thoughts.
  • Who, despite being highly educated, consider making attempts at understanding and removing such differences as a waste of time.
  • Who consider the differences between the Ahle Sunnah scholars and the Deobandi scholars, as merely trivial or secondary.
  • Who spend their scholarly and research capabilities in clarifying and interpreting the insolent writings of the Deobandis. (Perhaps religion will remain incomplete without such explanations!)
  • Who consider researching the differences between the Ahle Sunnah and Deobandi scholars just a waste of time, whereas at the same time they are the most zealous advocators of unification!
  • Who consider that Teejah (meals for the poor on the third day of passing away of a Muslim), Daswaan (meals for the poor on the tenth day of passing away of a Muslim), Chaleeswan (meals for the poor on the fortieth day of passing away of a Muslim), and visits to mausoleums are the actual differences between the Ahle Sunnah scholars and Deobandi scholars.
  • Who consider the publication and sale of literature based on blasphemous and insolent writings, as the most important service to Islam!
  • Who feel uneasy at the mention of religious differences, but who spend all their physical and monetary resources in tolerating and solving with elegance all their official problems and business affairs.
  • Who advise that as per the circumstances, disputed writings & problems should not be discussed – but do not render this advice to the institutions that are ceaselessly publishing such literature.
  • Who term the issues of (a) Respecting our Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), (b) The status of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), (c) The attributes of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), (d) Veneration of the Companions and of the members of the family of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), (e) Sainthood and (f) other Islamic issues, as “Sectarianism” perpetrated by the Ahle Sunnah school of thought – and in this way such persons intentionally or unintentionally support infidelity and heresy.
  • Who understand the real causes of the differences and have the true spirit of presenting a program on the national (or international) level, through which the wide gulf of differences can be bridged and an initiative can be taken towards unification.

Surah Al-Tauba – The Hypocrites who turned disbelievers after becoming Muslims”

The Holy Quran Shareef

The Holy Quran Shareef

[Taubah 9:23] O People who Believe! Do not consider your fathers and your brothers as your friends if they prefer disbelief over faith; and whoever among you befriends them – then it is he who is the unjust.

 [Taubah 9:61] And among them (the hypocrites) are those who trouble* the Herald of the Hidden (the Prophet) and say, “He is only ears**”; say “He is a listener for your good, he believes in Allah and believes in what the Muslims say, and is a mercy for the Muslims among you”; and for those who trouble the Noble Messenger of Allah, is a painful punishment. (*To disrespect / trouble the Holy Prophet – peace and blessings be upon him – is blasphemy. **He believes whatever he is told.)

[Taubah 9:62] They swear by Allah in your presence in order to please you; whereas Allah – and His Noble Messenger – had more right that they should have pleased Him if they had faith.

[Taubah 9:63] Do they not know that for one who opposes Allah and His Noble Messenger, is the fire of hell, to remain in it forever? This is the greatest humiliation.

[Taubah 9:64] The hypocrites fear for a chapter being revealed regarding them, which may disclose what is hidden in their hearts; say, “Keep mocking; Allah will certainly disclose what you fear.”

[Taubah 9:65] And if you ask them, they will say, “We were just having fun and pastime”; say, “What! You mock at Allah and His verses and His Noble Messenger?”

[Taubah 9:66] “Do not feign excuses, you have turned disbelievers after becoming Muslims”; if We forgive some of you *, We shall punish others because they were guilty. (* One who kept quiet and later repented.)

Section 9

[Taubah 9:67] The hypocrite men and women are all the same; enjoining wrong and forbidding right, and being tight-fisted *; they have forgotten Allah, so Allah has forsaken them; indeed the hypocrites – it is they who are really disobedient. (* Not spending in Allah’s cause)

[Taubah 9:68] Allah has promised the hypocrite men and hypocrite women and the disbelievers, the fire of hell in which they will remain forever; that is sufficient for them; and Allah’s curse is upon them; and for them is a never ending punishment.

Section 10

[Taubah 9:73] O Herald of the Hidden! Fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them; and their destination hell; and what an evil place to return!

[Taubah 9:74] And they swear by Allah that they did not say it; whereas indeed they had certainly uttered the words of disbelief, and after having entered Islam turned disbelievers and had wished for what they did not get; and what annoyed them except that Allah, and His Noble Messenger, made them prosperous with His grace? So if they repent, it is better for them; and if they turn away, Allah will afflict them with a painful punishment – in this world and the Hereafter; and they will have neither a protector nor any supporter in the entire earth.
