This is another group of the Wahabiyah in India and they are also paid agents of their anti-Islamic foreign masters. the four leading Deobandi leaders: Ashraf Ali Thanvi, Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi, Khaleel Ahmad Ambethvi and Qasim Nanuatvi crossed all the limits of the Islamic Shariah and of issolance, in the grandure of Allah Ta’ala and His Holy Messenger (Sallal Lahu Ta’ala Alaihi Wassllam).
1- Ashraf Ali Thanvi rejected the unseen knowledge for the Holy prophet (Sallal Lahu Ta’ala Alaihi Wasllam). and not only that, but he went so far that,he confirmed the Holy prophet’s (Sallal Lahu Ta’ala Alaihi Wasllam). unseen knowledge with animal and mad-man, Even in some cases he said they have more unseen knowledge than the holy prophet (Hifz-ul-Iman p.8)
He also permitted his followers to recite instead of first Kalima (The first code of Islam),i.e. “La ilaha Illallahu Muhammad ur Rasool lullah.” with his name in the Kalimah: La-ilha illallahu Ashraf Ali Rasool lullah” (Maz Allah) When he was asked :”Whether this uttrance is against Islam or not ? He explained that : ‘No there is nothing against Islam .”‘
Can any ignorant Muslim proclaim such a blaphemous statements?!! No! Never.Then Imam Ahmad Raza Khan (Radi Allahu Anhu) fulfilled his religious duty as a scholar and asked him to withdraw his statements but he insisted on those statements.
And Imam Ahmed Raza (Radi Allahu Anhu) issued verdict against him that because of these statements he has uttered, has gone out of Islam and so he is a Kafir. Ulama and scholars around the Islamic world accepted,confirmed and approved this verdict against him and apperciated Imam Ahmed Raza’s (Radi Allahu Anhu) efforts and hard word on Islam.
2-Another Wahabi Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi has said in his book that: “Satan’s unseen knowledge is greater than that of the Holy prophet” (Fatawa Rasheedia P.10). He further said in another statement that: ” if you (Muslims) want eteral salvation in present age, you have to only follow me.’ Who can say such a blaspemous statement other than a satan? No Alim (scholar), or ordinary Muslim can utter or accept such statements as these. Only a devil like Gangohi,can say this sort of absolute Kufr.
Imam Ahmad Raza (Radi Allahu Anhu), as an Alim, also asked this man to withdraw his statements but he insisted on them. so Imam Ahmad Raza (Radi Allahu Anhu) fulfilled his his duty as a Muslim Alim and issued against him verdict of kufr and all Ulama also accepted , confirmed and approved this verdict.
3- Khaleel Ahmad Ambethvi worte a book entitled with ” Barahin-e-Qatia.”
Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi verified this book and confirmed the statements of Khaleel Ahmad Ambethvi. Khaleel Ahmad has said in this book that: ” This is not a new issue that Allah can tell a lie , rather there is a difference of opinionns between ancient Ulama.” Imam Ahmad Raza (Radi Allahu Anhu) wrote the following books in refutation of this blasphemous talk:-
He wrote in this Barahin-e-Qatia that: ” As regards satan and the angel of death, the depth of their knowledge stands proven from the definitive verse of the Holy Quran but there is nothing as such in the Holy Quran to prove the depth of the knowledge of prophet (Sallal Lahu Ta’ala Alaihi Wasllam).
In other words, satan’s knowledge of unseen is greater than that of the Holy proghet ” (p.51)
He has also said that ; ” The Holy prophet has even no knowledge of behind the wall .” (p.51)
He also said that; ” If any one belives that prophet comes during a Milad-an-Nabi”, celebration, he becomes a Kafir. How could any Muslim tolerate
such a blasphemous statement, Imam Ahmad Raza (Radi Allahu Anhu) is an Alim of Islam fulfilled his religious duty and issued verdict against him and all Muslim scholars ,also accepted confirmed and approved this verdict.
4- Qasim Nanautvi has said in his book: “if a prophet comes after the last prophet.”(Tahzeer-un-Naas p-24).He further said in the same book that:According to the general opinion of the ordinary Muslims , “Khatim-un-Nabiyeen” means ‘The last of the prophet ‘,But according to the scholars (Ulama), it does not mean this. And there is no excellence to be the ‘ Last “‘ He says against the same book : ” A follower can equal in good action with the prophet and sometimes a follower can be rewarded more than the prophet.”
Any one can imagine, what mentalities these misguided people had that they uttered such a Blasphemous statements? It seems that they were definitely paid agents of the enemies of Islam and they were also receiving huge salaiesfor their anti-islamic actions.
Imam Ahmed Raza (Radi Allahu Anhu) fulfilled his religious duty as an Alim of Islam and issued verdict of his kufr and all Muslims scholars around the world accepted, confirmed and approved this verdict and greatly appreciated Imam Ahmed Raza’s (Radi Allahu Anhu) efforts for preserving the Islamic beliefs.
