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.

MIRACULOUS HAPPENINGS AFTER THE BIRTH OF PROPHET Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam

Immediately upon birth, the child Muhammad ( Sallalla hu alaihi wa Sallam ) miraculously did prostration to Allah and recited miraculously in a clear voice with his right hand index raised miraculously, as if in the act of giving evidence and said the following words:

“Ash-hadu an la ilaaha il lal lahu Anna Muhammad ur Rasulallah; Ya Rabbe habli Ummati”.


“I give evidence that none is worthy of divine worship except Allah. I am Muhammad ( Sallalla hu alaihi wa Sallam ) , the Messenger of Allah.” “O Sustainer (of the Universe) bless me (and) those who follow me.”


At once Allah spoke to His beloved as one who speaks face to face with his friend and replied: Translation from the Arabic:


“I have blessed you (O Muhammad ( Sallalla hu alaihi wa Sallam ) ) and those who follow you. O Angels, be ye witnesses of the fact that when he has not forgotten his followers upon his birth, then how can he forget them on the day of Ressurection .”

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).
