al-Imam Ahmed Rida: The lies of the Deobandis

When these folk are helpless to do anything else, and cannot see a place to flee; and because Allāh táālā has not given them guidance to repent; and they do not refrain from uttering those blasphemies said against Allāh táālā and His Messenger sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam; nor withdraw insults that were published, nor proclaim this withdrawal, they resort to slander, which is the:

FIFTH SUBTERFUGE

This kind of behavior is described in the verse:

they seek to prevent from the path of Allah and wish to subvert it. (Sūrah Al-Aárāf, 7:45)

To thwart poor common folk from the path of Allāh and to instigate them, and seeking to pull wool over their eyes in broad daylight, they tell them: “What is the reliability of these scholars of Ahlu’s Sunnah? And what is the credibility of their fatāwā? These people do takfīr for even petty things and their machine always keeps churning out fatāwā of kufr. After all, they have declared Ismāýīl Dihlawī as kāfir; Maulvi Is’ĥāq[1] as kāfir; Maulvi Ábd al-Ĥayy[2] as kāfir…”

And those who have a greater degree of shame[3] add that MáādhAllāh! we have declared Shaykh Shāh Ábdu’l Ázīz, Shāh Walīyullah, Hājī Imdādullāh, Mawlānā Shāh Fađlu’r Raĥmān as kāfir[4]. And those who are beyond all bounds of shame, accuse us of saying – and I seek Allāh’s refuge from such thing, MáādhAllāh – that Shaykh Mujaddid e Alf-e-Sāni[5] was kāfir.

Wherever they see that someone has a special reverence for a certain personality, there they use his name and say that Sunnis have declared him a kāfir. This kind of defamation has reached such a state, that some esteemed and honorable[6] people went to Mawlānā Shāh Muĥammad Husayn Ilāhabādī and told him that we have said – and I seek Allāh’s refuge: MáādhAllāh, MáādhAllāh, MáādhAllāh – that Sayyidunā Shaykh al-Akbar Muhiyuddin Ibn al-Árabi [may Allāh sanctify his secret] is a kāfir. May Allāh táālā grant the noble Mawlānā lofty stations in paradise, that he acted upon this verse: Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam’s Knowledge of Five Secrets : Uloom al-Khamsah

ان الله عنده علم الساعه و ينزل الغيث و يعلم ما في الارحام وما تدري نفس ما ذا تكسب غدا وما تدري نفس باي ارض تموت ان الله عليم خبير

Undoubtedly, with Allah is the knowledge of the Hour, and He sends down rain and knows what is in the wombs of the mothers and no soul knows what it will earn tomorrow and no soul knows in what land it will die. Undoubtedly, Allah is the Knower, All Aware. [31:34]

The opponents say on the basis of this verse that the knowledge of all the above mention things known as Five Branches of Knowledge lies with Almighty Allah and no one else! By this they conclude that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him) did not possess Ilm-e-Ghayb. This is indeed a hasty conclusion. Let us have an eye over some Authentic Commentaries of Qur’an to understand the real and true meaning of this verse.

Commentaries on the Above Verse of Holy Qur’an

Tafseer-e-Saavi Hashiya Ala Tafseer al Jalalain comments under this verse:

اي من حيث ذاتها واما باعلام الله للعبد فلا مانع منه كالانبياء و بعض الاولياء قال تعالى ولا يحيطون بشئي من علمه الا بما شاء قال تعالى فلا يظهر علي غيبه احدا الا من ارتضي من رسول فلا مانع من كون الله يطلع بعض عباده الصلحين علي بعض المغيبات فتكون معجزة للنبي و كرامة للولي ولذلك قال العلماء الحق انه لم يخرج نبينا من الدنيا حتي اطلعه علي تلك الخمس

It means that no one knows about these five things. But on being informed by Almighty Allah Himself it is not prohibited that any of chosen people such as Prophets and Mystic saints (Auliya Allah) may come to know about of anythings belonging to the Realm of the Unseen (Ghayb). Allah Almighty has said that (even) these chosen servants can not encompass the knowledge of Allah except what Almighty Allah pleases to enlighten them and only to the extent revealed by Him.

What will you say after reading this Kufriyats

 

1. Al-Laah can tell a lie. (Fataawa Rasheediyah, vol. 1. Page 19).

 

2. Al-Laah does not know beforehand what His creations would do. Al-Laah comes to know of their doings only after they have done something. (Tafseer Bulghatul Hairaan pages 157 and 158).

 

3. Shaitaan (Satan) and the Angel of death are more knowledge able than the holy Prophet is (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam). (Baraaheen-e-Qaati’ah, pages 51 and 52).

 

4. The Prophet of Al-Laah was not aware of his ultimate fate and of things beyond a wall. (Barraheen-e-Qaati ‘ah, page51).

 

5. The kind of knowledge and the amount of knowledge of the unseen given by Almighty Al-Laah to the holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) has also been given to animals, lunatics and children. (Hifzul Ieemnan,page 7).

 

6. Even the thought of the holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) occurring during Namaaz is much worse than to be immersed in the thought of an ox or a donkey. (Siraat-e-Mustaqeem,page 86). (But the thought of Thanvi Sahib or any other Deobandi Mullaa coming during Namaaz is justified).

 

7. The appellation Rahmatul Lil ‘Aalameen is not an exclusive attribute of the holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam). Other saintly persons also can be called Rahmatul Lil’Aalameen. (Fataawa Rasheediyah vol. 2. Page 12).

 

8. To the common people, the expression “Khaatim-un-Nabiy-yeen” means the “last Prophet”. To the knowing people this is not a correct view. Even if a Prophet was to be born after the holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) it would still have no effect on the concept of the finality of Muhammad (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam). (Tahzeerun-Naas,Pages 3 and 25).

 

9. The holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) learnt the Urdu language from the ‘Ulama of Deoband. (Baraaheen-e-Qaati ‘ah,page 26).

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”.

(Tamheed Ul Iman by Ala Hazrat radi allahu anhu)

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.

(Tamheed Ul Iman by Ala Hazrat radi allahu anhu)

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).

(Tamheed Ul Iman by Ala Hazrat radi allahu anhu)

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:
