Golden Words of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani RadiAllahanhu

  • A mo’min leaves his family in the care of the creator while a munaafiq leaves his family in the care of his dirham and dinaars (wealth).
  • There are 3 types of creation 1. Angels 2. The Devil 3. Man. The Angels are entirely good and the devil is entirely bad. Man is a mixture of good and bad. Whoever is overcome with good he can be likened to an Angel and whoever is overcome with evil he can be likened to the devil.
  • Do not laugh with those that are laughing but cry with those that are crying.
  • If your thoughts are with the creator then you are subservient to the creator. If your thoughts are with the creation then you are subservient to the creation.

  • As long as the doors of good health are open to you then regard it as a blessing for very soon it will be closed upon you. So as long as you have the strength and power to do good deeds regard it as a blessing.
  • It is wrong to claim respect towards your creator as long as you have no respect whatsoever for his creation.
  • When an ‘Alim is not an ascetic then, he is a punishment upon those that follow him.
  • A Mu’min, as he grows older Faith becomes stronger.
  • To search for good fortune is an unnecessary trouble and to search for that which is not your destiny is to anger Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala and disgraceful.
  • You do not concern yourself in making the creator angry by pleasing the creation. In exchange for Worldly mansions and building you destroy your hereafter. Very soon you will be caught. He will definitely catch you whose imprisonment is very, very fearful.
  • What, you do not become ashamed ordering him to change your fate? Are your more commanding, more just and merciful than him? You and the entire creation are his servants. It becomes compulsory upon you to adopt, peace, solitude and silence.
  • Saying without deeds and deeds without sincerity are not worthy of acceptance.
  • A person once came to the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and said that he loves him (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) very much. The Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said to him “lay down a cloth or spread a cloth for Poverty.” Another person said that he loves Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala , The Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said “spread a cloth for misfortune, for the love of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala and the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam is intertwined with poverty and misfortunes.”
  • You are busy accumulating that which you would not be able to eat. You desire for that which you cannot attain. Construct those buildings in which you will not stay. All this makes you blind to the status of your creator.
  • Be happy in the changes and choices that the creator made for you. If you stay in this manner with him then he will definitely change your fears and horrors.
  • Adopt patience for this World is an assembly of troubles and calamities.
  • When somebody approaches carrying tales or gossiping or informing you about what another has said to him about you then admonish him and tell him that he is worst than that person that was gossiping about you for that person spoke behind your back while he is telling it straight to your face. That person has not made you listen yet he made you listen to it.
  • What an unfortunate person is he who had not been given the habit of being merciful in his heart for all living things?
  • Your biggest enemies are those that are your biggest supporters.
  • The sum total of all the essence of good is to seek knowledge, practice upon it and teaching it to somebody.

“True Meaning and Excellence of Baait / Bayth”

The meaning of Bay’at or pledging spiritual allegiance is to be totally sold, which means to surrender yourself totally to a Spiritual Master (Murshid) to guide you to Allah.

Bay’at should be done on the hands of that person who possesses the following e attributes or else Bay’at will not be permissible. These are:

1. First and foremost, he must be a Sunni Muslim holding correct Islamic beliefs.
2. He should at least have that amount of knowledge which will enable him, without the assistance of anyone, to extract questions relating to Islamic Jurisprudence from Islamic books.
3. His Silsilaa (Chain of Spiritual Order) must be directly linked to the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) without a break in the sequence.
4. He must not be a Fasiq-e-Mo’lin (One who openly commits transgression and sin).

People, today, consider Bay’at to be some kind of fashion. They are ignorant of the reality of Bay’at. An example is given here to give you an idea of what Bay’at really is. Once a Murid (Disciple) of the great Shaykh Sayyiduna Yahya Maneri (Radi Allahu’ Ta’ala Anho) was drowning. Sayyiduna Khidr (Alaihis Salaam) appeared and said the Murid, “Give me your hand and I will save you”. The Murid replied, “This hand has already been given in the hands of Sayyiduna Yahya Maneri Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho and since it belongs to him I cannot give it to anyone else”. Sayyiduna Khidr Alaihis Salam disappeared and, instantly, Sayyiduna Yahya Maneri Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho appeared and saved him.

Ghawth al Aa’zam Shaykh Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu, Baghdad Sharif – Iraq

TAJDID-E-BAY’AT (RENEWAL OF BAY’AT)

Tajdid or renewal of Bay’at used to take place in the time of the Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. Once the Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam personally took Bay’at thrice from Sayyiduna Salmah bin Akwah Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho who was preparing to leave for Jihad. In the first instance, Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam asked, “Did Salmah take Bay’at?” After a while the Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam asked, “Salmah, are you not going to take Bay’at?” Sayyiduna Salmah Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho said, “Ya Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam! I had already taken Bay’at”. After all the Ashabs had taken Bay’at, the Prophet of Islam SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam repeated for the third time, “Salmah are you not going to take Bay’at?” Sayyiduna Salmah Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho said, “Ya Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam! I have already taken Bay’at twice”. The Prophet of Islam SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said, “Repeat the Bay’at”. So, Sayyiduna Salmah Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho, in a single sitting took Bay’at (Tajdid) thrice.

The secret and wisdom of the emphasis of Bay’at made on him was that he always made Jihad with the Kufar by foot. For him to now dash into the army of the enemy and confront them alone meant nothing to him.

Hadrat Sultan Shahabuddin Soharwardi Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho, Baghdad – Iraq

BAY’AT AND ITS BENEFITS

There are two types of Bay’at:

(A) BAY’AT-E-BARAKAH

This is to initiate one’s self for the mere Barakah (Blessing) of joining a Silsila and this is the general idea or reason of today’s Bay’ats. This should, at least, be done with a good intention. If Bay’at is taken for mere worldly gain or any reason other than spiritual upliftment, then such Bay’at is Batil (null and void). For Bay’at-e-Barakah it is sufficient if the Shaykh you take Bay’at from is Shaykh-e-Ittisal, which means that his Silsila is linked to the King of the Prophets, Sayyiduna Muhammad SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam without a break in sequence and that the Shaykh possesses the four mentioned pre-requisites mentioned.

A’la Hazrat (Radi ALLAHu’ Ta’ala Anho) states: “The above Bay’at is not useless, but beneficial, in fact, very beneficial and profitable in Deen and Dunya. At least, his name would be recorded in the books of the Beloved of Allah (Mehbooban-e-Khuda). By just having a link with a spiritual order (Silsila) is by itself a great fortune and blessing of which three are mentioned below:

1. Emulation or imitation of the elite and Beloved ones of Allah (Khasan-e-Khuda) in the field of Tariqah or Sufism. Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said:

“One who imitates a nation is among them”.

Sayyiduna Shaykh-ush-Shuyuk Shahabud Din Suhrwardi (Radi ALLAHu’ Ta’ala Anho) states in his book, “Awariful Ma’ahrif”:

“Be it known that there are two types of Bay’at – Bay’at-e-Tabaruk (Barakah) and Bay’at-e-Iradah (Devotion). The actual intention of the Murids of a Masha’ikh is Bay’at-e-Iradah and Bay’at-e-Tabaruk has similarity with it. So for the real and true Murid there is Bay’at-e-Iradah and, for those who desire imitation there is Bay’at-e-Tabaruk because those who imitate a nation is amongst them”.

2. A divine link is connected with the Awliya and Sualihin. Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) says that His Rabb, the All Powerful and Almighty Allah says.

“There are those people who, by merely sitting with them, one will never become a Kafir”. (This refers to the Awliya)

3. The Beloved of Allah are Ayat Rahmah (Signs of Mercy). They take into their fold of mercy all those who remember and honour them and also focus their beams of mercy on them. Someone asked the King of the Awliya, Sayyiduna Ghousul Azam (Radi ALLAHu’ Ta’ala Anho):

“If any person takes your name in respect and honour though he may not be your Murid or not initiated by you personally, would he be counted as your Murid?”

The great Ghawth replied:

“Allah will accept those who have any form of relation or connection with me and notes his name in my spiritual office. If such a person adopts any desired path, Allah will bless him with guidance and repentance. He will be under my spiritual banner. Verily, my Rabb, the All Powerful and Almighty, has promised me that all my Murids, all those who love me and all those who follow the path I am on, will enter Jannah (Paradise)”.

Hadrat Sultan Bahauddin Naqshbandi Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho, Bukhara – Uzbekistan

(B) BAY’AT-E-IRADAH

This means to totally abolish ones desires and intentions and surrender on’s self at the hands of a true Guide or Spiritual Master who has entered the Kingdom of the Heavens. You have totally empower him as your commander and ruler. You have to sincerely obey and execute all his orders and methods entrusted on you by him concerning the path to the spiritual domain. Never take a step without his consent even though some laws and orders may not suit you or make sense to you. Remember the example of Khidr (Alaihis Salam) when Sayyiduna Moosa (alaihis salam) met him and they both travelled together. The Murshid’s commands may cause great discomfort to you and at such moments the Murid must regard this as the interference of the Cursed Shaitan. Your every hardship and difficulty must be presented to him. In conclusion, the Murid must totally hand himself over to the Shaykh like a corpse in the hands of a person performing Ghusal. This is known as Bay’at-e-Salikin. Such Bay’at is regarded as being the aim and object of the grand Spiritual Masters. Such Bay’at leads one to Allah the Almighty. It was Bay’at-e-Salikin that was taken by the Ashabs at the hands of the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam).

Sayyiduna Obadah bin Samat (Radi ALLAHu’ Ta’ala Anho) states:

“We had taken Bay’at (at the hands of Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) on the following principles:

We will await his command and execute it in times of every ease and difficulty, every form of ecstasy or displeasure. And when the Master commands us we will never disobey or cross question him”.

The command of the Murshid is the command of Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) and his command is the Command of Allah, the All Powerful, Who nobody dares disobey. Allah states in the Holy Quran:

“And it is not appropriate for faithful men and women; when and His Messenger have judged a matter, to consider it a matter of choice for themselves; and one who does not accept the judgement of and His Messenger has indeed clearly entered darkness.” [Sura Ahzab: 36]

In “Awariful Ma’arif” Shaykh Shahab al-Din Suhrawardi Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho sates:

“To be under the command of the Shaykh is to be under the Command of Allah and His Rasool SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and is the revival of a Sunnah – Bay’at. This is only applicable on those persons who imprison themselves in the hands of the Shaykh, discard all desires and dissolve themselves in the Shaykh (Fana-fish-Shaykh)”.

Shaykh Suhrawardi Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho also states:

“Abstain from criticizing the Shaykh for it is a deadly poison for the Murid. It is extremely rare for a Murid who criticise his Shaykh to find serenity and success. In any action of the Shaykh which does not seem correct to the Murid, he should remember the events of Sayyiduna Khidar. This is because the actions performed by Sayyiduna Khidar Alaihis Salam were apparently questionable (e.g. making a hole in the boat of the poor and killing an innocent child), but when the reasons for these actions were explained then it became obvious that the Shaykh should not be questioned”.

Sayyiduna Imam Abul-Qasim Qushayri Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho states in his Kitab, “Risalah”, that Sayyiduna Abu Sahal Sahlooki Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho states,

“Any person who says ‘why’ to any word of his Shaykh will never achieve success.”

May Allah Azza wa Jal grant us peace and success. Aameen!!

RECTIFICATION TO A MISCONCEPTION:

It has become a misconception today, that only Sayyids (descendants of the Beloved Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) are allowed to be Peers. They are the only ones who have the right of making mureeds. Sadly, amongst those who spread such propaganda, are mostly those who themselves are not Sayyid and only claim to be Sayyid, so that they may broaden their horizons. True Love and respect for the Sayyid is the recognition of the people of Imaan. Very deprived and unfortunate are those who have no love for the family of the Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam). But it must be noted, that it is not necessary to be Sayyid to be a Peer. The Holy Quran says,

“The exalted and respected in the Court of Allah are those amongst you that are pious and Allah Fearing.”

It must be noted, that, Hadrat Ghawth al-Azam Shaykh Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) is no doubt Hasani Husaini Sayyid, but his Peer, Hadrat Abu Saeed Makhzoomi, and his Shaykh Hadrat Abul Hassan Hakaari and His Shaykh Hadrat Abul Farah Tartoosi and various other Shuyookh of the Silsila, namely Shaykh Abdul Waahid Tameemi, Shaykh Abu Bakr Shibli, Hadrat Junaid Baghdadi, Hadrat Siiri Saqti and Hadrat Ma’roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Anhum al-Ajma’een are all not Sayyids. The Peer of Sultaan al-Hind Hadrat Khwaja Mueen al-Deen Chishti Alaihir Rahma wa ar-Ridwaan, Hadrat Khwaja Usman Harooni Alaihir Rahma wa ar-Ridwaan is also not a Sayyid.

AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Anhu) states:

To say that it is a condition for a Peer to be Sayyid, is to claim that all the silsilas (Spiritual Chains) are baatil (broken). In the Silsila Aaliyah Qadiriyah, all the Shaykhs between Sayyiduna Ali Rida and Hadrat Ghawth al-Azam (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhum al-Ajma’een) are all non Sayyids. And in the Silsila Aaliyah Chishtiya, immediately after Sayyiduna Ali (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) is Hadrat Imam Hassan al-Basri (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu), who neither Sayyid, Quraishi nor an Arab, and in Silsila Aaliyah Naqshabandiya, the actual inception is from Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu). [Fatawa Radawiyyah, Vol. 9, Page 114]

THE EXCELLENCE OF RECITING ONE’S SiJRAH

There are many virtues in reciting one’s Sajrah of which a few are mentioned below:

1. Memorising the chain of Awliya up to Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
2. The Zikr and Remembrance of Swalihin (Awliya) is the means of receiving Allah’s Rahmah (Mercy)
3. Performing the Esal-e-Sawab for all the Spiritual Masters which is a cause of receiving their spiritual guidance.
4. When the Murid remembers them in times of ease the Awliya of the Silsila will remember him in times of hardship and will also be of assistance to him.

“Salafi Forgery Caught in Tafsir Ibne Kathir new edition”

As I have often exposed Salafis in their forgeries to classical Islamic literature but I wonder why they really have some deep concerns in regards to Tafsir Ibn Kathir which they love to forge and tamper.  

This time I am going to hunt two preys with one arrow. Wahabis are extremely stubborn on the issue of “Qir’at Khalf-ul-Imam (Reciting behind the Imam during prayer) in imitation of their Shi’ite brothers just like on issue of Raful Yaddain where Albani Bidati even tried to prove Raful Yaddain in between Sujood”

They propagate Tafsir Ibn Kathir to the masses assuming that general masses would be easily misguided due to their forgeries. But with the Izn of Allah, this servant from Ahlus Sunnah keeps on stumbling upon forgeries upon forgeries done to Tafsir Ibn Kathir by these fanatic Wahabi propagandists (including their big guru translators)

 

When they see Ibn Kathir shattering their aqaid or major Fiqhi viewpoints they are left with no option but to forge the beautiful analysis of Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) in his Tafsir al Qur’an al Azeem. Ordinary people do not realize that these pseudo claiments of Haqq are actually propagating their own forgeries not wording of Hafidh Ibn Kathir (rah)

 

Now let us look at beautiful analysis of Imam Ibn Kathir under this clear verse of Qur’an which states:

 

When the Qur’an is being recited then “LISTEN ATTENTIVELY AND REMAIN SILENT” so that mercy will be showered upon you”.(7:204)

 

This verse is a Salafi backbone breaker because directly from the order of Allah azza Wajjal it stands proven that Muqtadi should not recite behind the Imam (debates can go on and on but Qur’an has put forward a decider on this issue)

 

Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) said under this verse:

وقال أبو حنيفة وأحمد بن حنبل: لا يجب على المأموم قراءة أصلاً في السرية ولا الجهرية بما ورد في الحديث «من كان له إمام فقراءته قراءة له» وهذا الحديث رواه الإمام أحمد في مسنده عن جابر مرفوعاً، وهو في موطأ مالك عن وهب بن كيسان عن جابر موقوفاً، وهذا أصح

 

Translation: Imam Abu Hanifa (rah) and Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal (rah) say that Qirat is not binding upon Muqtadi “WHETHER IN SILENT OR LOUD PRAYER” because it has come in hadith that whosoever has an Imam then his recitation is your recitation, this hadith is narrated by Imam Ahmed in his Musnad from Jabir (ra) in the “MARFU FORM” and in Muwatta Imam Malik via the route of Wahb bin Kaysan who nattated from Jabir (ra) in Mawquf form. (Ibn Kathir said) “THIS IS THE MORE CORRECT VIEWPOINT” [Tafsir Ibn Kathir, (1/281) under 7:204]

 

When I looked up both the English and Urdu Translations of Ibn Kathir published by Wahabis I saw some important parts of this statement being removed. The English one has removed many many hadiths which Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) showed to prove that the verse was revealed in regards to obligatory Prayers and also in regards to not reciting behind the Imam let alone the above quote in which Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) is proving the Hanafi stance to be correct.

However the Urdu one says:

 

 

1457691_10151812613148235_719419555_n

 

 

Roman Urdu: Imam Abu Hanifa Rahimahullah aur Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal Rahimahullah kehtay hain kay Muqtadi hargiz Qiraat na karay na Siri Namaaz main na Jahri main kyoonkay Hadees main Warid hai kay Imam ki Qirat tumhari Qirat hai.[Wahabi Deletion] “YAHI ZIYADAH SAHIH HAI” 

Translation in English: Imam Abu Hanifa (rah) and Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal (rah) say that Muqtadi should never do Qirat  “NEITHER IN SILENT PRAYER NOR IN LOUD”because it has come in hadith that whosoever has an Imam then his recitation is your recitation  [WAHABI DELETION]  “THIS IS MORE CORRECT ” [Tafsir Ibn Kathir, (1/281) under 7:204]

 

– End Quote –

 

Many people would not realize the forgery of Wahabis here whereas Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) has said after narrating the hadith: “Imaam ki Qiraat tumhari Qiraat hai”

 

وهذا الحديث رواه الإمام أحمد في مسنده عن جابر مرفوعاً، وهو في موطأ مالك عن وهب بن كيسان عن جابر موقوفاً،

 

Translation in Roman Urdu: Yeh Hadith Imam Ahmed nay Apni Musnad may “MARFU” riwayat ki Hadrat Jabir (RA) say aur yehi Muwatta main Imam Malik nay Wahb bin Kaysan say Mawqoof riwayat ki Jabr (RA) say. [Tafsir Ibn Kathir under 7:204]

 

Translation in English: This hadith is narrated by Imam Ahmed in his Musnad from Jabir (ra) in the “MARFU FORM” and in Muwatta Imam Malik via the route of Wahb bin Kaysan who nattated from Jabir (ra) in Mawquf form. [ibid]

 

Now why Wahabis removed this explanation of Ibn Kathir? Because the hadith of Musnad Ahmed is “SAHIH LI GHAYRI” whereas the hadith in Muwatta Imam Malik is “SAHIH BI DHATIHI”

 

The Wahabis pseudo Muhaqiqeen said in Takhreej of Ibn Kathir: “WEAK“.. Imam Ibn Hajr said: All the chains of this narration are weak [Talkhees al Habeer (1/420)] Shaykh Mustafa as-Syed, Shaykh Rishaad, Shaykh Ajmai, Shaykh Ali Ahmed and Shaykh Hassan Abbas say that It’s sanad is weak because it contains Jabir Ja’afi who is “DA’EEF RAFIDHI” “HOWEVER SHAYKH ALBANI HAS CALLED IT HASSAN” (Irwa al Ghaleel (#850). Allama Mubashar Ahmed Rabbani has called it Da’eef.

 

First of all this Jarh is not on the Mawqoof hadith from Jabir (RA) in Muwatta Imam Malik nor is it on the Sanad shown by Imam Ahmed which does not include Jabir Ja’afi in chain. This is precisely why Wahabis cleverly forged the explanation of Ibn Kathir (rah)

 

Secondly, except for Imam Ibn Hajr al Asqalani (rah) who was a great scholar, the remaining people shown by Wahabis are not even worth a penny according to Ahlus Sunnah. Rather all names mentioned are unknown names in field of hadiths except for Wahabi Albani who is considered their biggest champion over hadith and Alhamdolillah he had to accept this hadith as “HASAN”…ALLAH HU AKBAR!

 

Although I will prove this hadith as “SAHIH” both in Marfu and Mawqoof form but do not forget that the point is Wahabi fabrication to Ibn Kathir’s quote.

 

Authentication of the “Mawqoof” hadith first (Note: This is a totally different hadith than the one in Musnad Ahmed)

 

Imam Malik in Muwatta narrates:

وحدَّثني عَنْ مَالِكٍ ، عَنْ أَبِي نُعَيْمٍ وَهْبِ بْنِ كَيْسَانَ ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ جَابِرَ بْنَ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ ، يَقُولُ: مَنْ صَلَّى رَكْعَةً لَمْ يَقْرَأْ فِيهَا بِأُمِّ الْقُرْآنِ، فَلَمْ يُصَلِّ إِلاَّ وَرَاءَ الإِمَامِ .

 

Translation: Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu Nuaym Wahb ibn Kaysan that he heard Jabir ibn Abdullah say, “Someone who prays a raka without reciting the umm al-Qur’an in it has not done the prayer except behind an imam.” [Book 3, Number 3.9.40: (Muwatta Imam Malik)]

 

This is a totally different narration but proves that Muqtadi does not have to recite behind the Imam whereas recitation is only necessary when praying alone.

The chain of this report is absolutely Sahih without any Ghubaar over it.

First narrator is: Yahya Ibn Salaam who has narrated Muwatta Imam Malik. The Wahabis accuse this narrator wrongly because then whole of Muwatta Imam Malik will cease to be authentic.

 

Second narrator is Imam Malik himself who requires no introduction.

 

Third narrator is Wahb bin Kaysan who was a Tab’i regarding him Muhaditheen said:

 

 

روى عن: أنس بن مالك، وجابر بن عبد الله

قال النَّسائي : ثقة

وذكره ابنُ حِبَّـان فـي كتاب «الثِّقات».

 

Translation: He narrated from Anas bin Malik and Jabir bin Abdullah (Ridhwan Allaho Ajmain)…

Imam Nasai’i said of him: He is “THIQA”

Ibn Hibaan mentioned him “THIQAAT” [See Tahdhib ul Kamaal #8306]

 

Fourth narrator is great Sahabi Jabir bin Abdullah (RA) himself who again requires no introduction.

 

Hence it is lie of Wahabis that this hadith mentioned by Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) is also Da’eef. 

 

The interesting thing is that this hadith of Muwatta is also proven to be “Marfu” with Sahih Sanad in Sharh al Ma’ani al Athaar of Imam at-Tahawi which states:

 

حدّثنا بحر بن نصر، قال: ثنا يحيى بن سلام، قال: ثنا مالك، عن وهب بن كيسان، عن جابر بن عبد اللّه، عن النبيّ، أنه قال: «من صلى ركعة، فلم يقرأ فيها بأم القرآن، فلم يصل إلا وراء الإمام».

 

Translation: Bahr bin Nasr >> Yahya bin Salaam >> Imam Malik >> Wahb bin Kaysan >> Jabir bin Abdullah >> FROM PROPHET (PEACE BE UPON HIM) WHO SAID: Someone who prays a raka without reciting the umm al-Qur’an in it has not done the prayer except behind an imam [Sharh al Ma’aani al Athaar (1/217)]

 

Let us now come towards the Marfu Hadith in Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal.

حدثنا عبد الله حدثني أبي ثنا أسود بن عامر أنا حسن بن صالح عن أبي الزبير عن جابر عن النبيّ صلى الله عليه وسلّم قال: «مَنْ كَانَ لَهُ إمامٌ فَقِرَاءَتُهُ لَهُ قِرَاءَةٌ».

 

Translation with Sanad and Matn: Narrated Abdullah >> from his Father >> From Aswad bin Aamir >> From Hasan bin Salih >> from Abi al-Zubayr >> From Jabir >> From Prophet (Peace be upon him) who said: Whosoever has an Imam then his Qirat for (Muqtadi) is enough [Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal (4/295) Hadith # 14354]

 

First of all there is no narrator called “Jabir Ja’afi” in this sanad. We know that Jabir Ja’afi is present in hadiths mentioned in other books but Imam Ahmed and also Imam Ibn Abi Shaybah have narrated this hadith without Jabir Ja’afi and this proves that the hadith comes without Ja’afi for sure.

 

This is why Wahabis forged the explanation of Ibn Kathir to put dust in eyes of people. We know that some hadith books do mention Jabir Ja’afi in chain but this has no effect on the sanad presented by Imam Ahmed and Imam Ibn Abi Shaybah in his Musannaf.

 

Now the point arises why Imam Ahmed narrated this hadith without Jabir Ja’afi? The answer is that direct Sam’aat of Imam Hasan bin Salih is proven from Abi al-Zubayr hence there is no need for having Jabir Ja’afi. Imam Ibn Turkamani (rah) a great Muhadith and Hanafi Faqih has clarified this in his magnificent Jawhr al Naqi.

 

Imam Ibn Turkamani (rah) said regarding the hadith in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah:

وهذا سند صحيح وكذا رواه أبو نعيم عن الحسن بن صالح عن ابى الزبير ولم يذكر الجعفي كذا في اطراف المزى وتوفى أبو الزبير سنة ثمان وعشرين ومائة ذكره الترمذي وعمرو بن على والحسن بن صالح ولد سنة مائة وتوفى سنة سبع وستين ومائة وسماعه من ابى الزبير ممكمن

Translation: “THIS SANAD IS SAHIH” and Abu Nu’aym narrates from Hasan bin Salih from Abi al-Zubayr “WITHOUT MENTIONING JA’AFI”.. Abi al-Zubayr died in 128 AH as mentioned by Imam at-Tirmidhi whereas.. Hasan bin Salih was born in 100 AH and and died in 176 AH “AND SAMAAT FROM ABI AL-ZUBAYR IS POSSIBLE” [Imam Ibn Turkamani in Jawhr al Naqi in chapter of “NOT RECITING BEHIND THE IMAM”]

 

Even if assuming for argument’s sake that Jabir Ja’afi is to be considered in chain then still this hadith is “SAHIH DUE TO SHAWAHID”

 

Shu’ayb al Ara’noot says after this hadith in his Tehqeeq over Musnad Ahmed:

حسن بطرقه وشواهده وهذا إسناد ضعيف لانقطاعه حسن بن صالح – وهو حسن بن صالح بن صالح بن حي – لم يسمعه من أبي الزبير بينهما فيه جابر بن يزيد الجعفي

 

Translation: “IT IS HASAN DUE TO ROUTES AND SHAWAHID” whereas this Isnaad is “Da’eef” due to Inqita between Hasan bin Salih who is Hasan bin Salih bin Salih bin Hayy – He did not hear from Abi al-Zubayr and in between is present Jabir bin Yazid al-Ja’afi. [Musnad Ahmed with Tehqeeq of Shuyab al Ar’anoot, Hadith # 14684]

 

Shaykh Shu’ayb has proven the Sanad as Hasan due to routes and “SHAWAHID” and that is enough to make Hujjat Tamaam, however he has stumbled to say that Hasan bin Salih did not hear from Abi al-Zubayr as we have already proven above that Samaat between them is possible due to they being of same era.

 

Let us now see the Shawahid of this hadith. Imam at-Tahawi (rah) the great Hanafi Muhadith has written in detail over this issue in his Sharh al Ma’aani al Athaar which is one of the greatest books of Hadith written in Fiqh style.

He quotes many hadiths from which I shall present some.

Hadith # 1 & 2

حدّثنا أحمد بن عبد الرَّحمن قال: ثنا عمي عبد اللّه بن وهب قال: أخبرني الليث، عن يعقوب، عن النعمان، عن موسى بن أَبي عائشة، عن عبد اللّه بن شداد، عن جابر بن عبد اللّه أن النبيّ قال: «من كان له إمام فقراءة الإمام له قراءة».

 

Translation: Hadrat Jabir bin Abdullah (RA) narrates from the Prophet (Peace be upon him) who said: Whosoever has an Imam then recitation of Imam is your recitation [Sharh al Ma’ani al Athaar, (1/446 Urdu Translation Version Published by Hamid and Company)]

 

حدّثنا أبو بكرة قال: ثنا أَبو أحمد، قال: ثنا سفيان الثوري، عن موسى بن أَبي عائشة، عن عبد اللّه بن شداد عن النبيّ نحوه، ولم يذكر جابراً

 

Translation: Abdullah bin Shadaad (rah) narrates from the Prophet (Peace be upon him) similar to this but did not mention Jabir (RA) [ibid]

 

Note: Abdullah bin Shadaad (rah) was a great Tab’i and he cannot be accused for attributing lies to the Prophet. Plus according to majority of Fuqaha and Muhaditheen like Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik and many others the Mursal of Thiqa Tab’i is accepted.

 

Hadith # 3 

حدّثنا ابن أَبي داود قال: ثنا الحسين بن عبد الأول الأحول قال: ثنا أَبو خالد سليمان بن حيّان، قال: ثنا ابن عجلان عن زيد بن أسلم، عن أَبي صالح، عن أَبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله: «إِنَّمَا جُعِلَ الإِمَامُ ليُؤْتَمَّ بِهِ، فَإِذَا قَرَأَ فَأَنْصِتُوا».

 

Translation: Hadrat Abu Hurraira (RA) narrates that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: The Imam is appointed upon you “SO THAT HE IS FOLLOWED, HENCE WHEN HE RECITES YOU SHOULD REMAIN SILENT” 

 

Hadith # 4:

حدّثنا أحمد بن داود قال: ثنا يوسف بن عَديّ قال: ثنا عُبيد اللّه بن عمرو، عن أيوب، عن أَبي قلابة، عن أنس رضي الله عنه قال: صلى رسول الله، ثم أقبل بوجهه فقال: «أتقرؤون والإمام يقرأ» فسكتوا فسألهم ثلاثاً فقالوا إنا لنفعل، قال: «فلا تفعلوا».

 

Translation: Hadrat Anas (RA) narrates that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) led us in prayer and then turned towards us and said: Do you recite when the Imam is reciting? The Sahaba remained quiet, then Prophet asked it “THREE TIMES” and then we (Sahaba) replied: “YES” at this the Prophet said: “DO NOT DO THIS ACT” [Sharh al Ma’aani al Athaar, Urdu Version 1/448]

 

There are many more hadiths from Prophet and Sahaba, hence no doubt is left behind that not reciting behind Imam is in correspondence with Quran (7:204) and Jumhoor Sahih hadiths.

 

May Allah save the Ummah from Fitnah of Wahabiyyah who try to misguide young people on such issues. I have written in detail over this issue to reveal the Salafi fabrications to their own highly revered Tafsir Ibn Kathir.

..:: Gems of Wisdom ::.. Hazrat Sayyiduna Zun-Noorain Usman-e-Ghani Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho.

Astonishing is he who finds death a reality, yet continues to laugh.

Astonishing is he who knows this World will soon perish yet keeps close association with it.

Astonishing is he who knows about fate yet mourns the loss of a thing.

The slip of the tongue is more dangerous than the slip of the feet.

If the eyes are bright and shining daily then it is a Day of Resurrection.

To stop sinning is easier than to seek forgiveness.

Make a purpose for life, then utilize all your strength to achieve it, you would definitely be successful.

I am astonished with that person who recognizes this World as perishable and understands all about fate yet mourns the loss of things. I am astonished with that person who believes in Rewards, Punishment of Hell and Paradise, yet he still commits sins. I am astonished at that person who knows that Allah exists yet remembers others and seeks there assistance.

A family man’s actions are presented together with that of a Mujahid (Muslim soldier) in the court of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala.

I am astonished with him who regards the reality of the existence of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala yet remembers others and asks for there assistance.

I am astonished by that person who believes in Hell yet continues to sin.

I am astonished at that person who brings Faith in Paradise yet associates himself to the pleasures of this World.

I am astonished at that person who regards Iblees (Saitan) as his enemy yet continues to follow him.

Squandered is that ‘Aalim (Learned man) to whom a person cannot ask a question. He is likened to that weapon which is not put to use – that wealth which is not utilized in good work – that knowledge without application – that  Masjid which Salaah is not read – that Salaah that is not performed in a  Masjid – that good advise which is not accepted – that book which is not read – that worshiper who keeps in his heart the pleasures of the World and that long life which had not stocked on provisions for the Hereafter.

At times, to forgive or pardon a criminal makes the criminal more dangerous.

O Mankind! Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala has created you so that you may please him, yet you choose to please others.

9/10 of the shares belonging to Peace and Safety are in isolating oneself from the people and the remaining one share lies in meeting with the people.

A person in times of difficulty acts upon his own devices thus depriving himself of the help of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala. He turns himself away from Allah
SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala, therefore Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala turns His Attention of Divine Grace from him too.

Isolation is most beloved to the beloved of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala.

Excessive politeness is a sign of Malice.

Do not rely on anyone except Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala and do not fear anything except your sins.

In whichever manner a person recognizes the World, so too, did his inclination occur towards it.
 
To knowingly partake of the pleasure offered by this material World is to reduce the remaining rewards and good deeds.

Test the worldly people in any matter you wish to and you would find them to be no less than snakes and scorpions.

The existence of good things and wealth in abundance is also a medical complaint. (meaning unhealthy)

Knowledge combined with action is profitable and action without knowledge does not benefit anything.

Do not place your burdens on anyone, although it is few or many.

A pious and practicing Muslim Jurist (Faqih) is Superior than thousand worshipers.

“World” is that work which does not serve the purpose of acquiring the Hereafter.

Silence is the best treatment for anger.

To carry the burden of others concludes the respect of a worshiper.

This World has been created a temporary abode by the Almighty Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala, and placed in trust to the travellers of the Hereafter. Take only those provisions which are beneficial and do not lust after that which you are going to leave behind.

The slippery tongue is much more dangerous than the slippery feet.

The one dirham charity of a poor person is better than 10,000 dirham charity given by the rich.

If you are prepared to commit a sin, then search for a place where Almighty Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala does not exist.

O People! If you do not want to worship the one true Lord, then do not utilize that which He has created. It is better that the World regard you as a criminal in relations to Almighty Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala thereby regarding you as a hypocrite.

To see the learned (‘Aalim) and pious keeping the company of the rich and wealthy is a testimony of hypocrisy.

Do not trade or deal with an oppressor or his associates.

To cry in Paradise is surprising, yet more astonishing is to laugh in the World.

When you have no rights on the perfume, you should close your noses to it, for even its scent is forbidden to you.

Save oneself for praising the corrupt wealthy, for the praise of an oppressor reveals the Wrath of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala.

To publicly give charity with an intention to entice people to be charitable is better than giving charity secretly.

To think that Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala Almighty is present with you at every given moment is the most excellent form of Faith.

A Polite person who wishes for anything in this World or in the Hereafter will definitely get his wishes granted.
 
Those that deal with Almighty Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala with sincerity and honesty hate to deal in any other affairs without sincerity and honesty.

A beast of burden recognizes his master yet people do not recognize their Master (Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala).

Once in the reign (Khilafat) of Sayyidun ‘Uthman Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho, there was a great drought. People began to sell their valuables and possessions cheaply to supplement their necessities. Sayyiduna ‘Uthman Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho was informed that a certain orchard was being sold at a very cheap price and he should buy it. So he decided to buy it. On his way to purchase the orchard, he came across many people who were poverty stricken, starving and distressed.

On seeing the condition of these people, he became very perturbed and unhappy. He distributed the entire money he had with him amongst the people. When he returned to his home, he was asked if he had purchased the orchard. He answered, “Yes! I have bought an orchard in Paradise for you all.”

All good deeds are associated with Modesty and all bad deeds are with Immodesty.

Backbiting and malice causes injury to three people. Firstly to oneself, secondly towards whom it is directed to and thirdly to the person who is listening.

To desire the administration of justice, is Paradise of the World.

Whosoever repairs his own shoes, visits an ailing servant, washes his own clothes and also patches it, then that person is free from pride and boastfulness.

People are spies of your vices.

The sword wounds the body while insults hurt the soul.

A person does not become a Faithful servant, until and unless he distances himself from sin and those that praise and respect him (because of his status) become his equal.

The best sanctity for a Muslim male is, when he guards his tongue, his sexual organ and his gaze.

Amongst the sinners, the gravest is he who finds the time, to discuss the faults of others.

The disgrace and disrespect shown to a Muslim is due to him straying from his religion and is not due to lack of gold (wealth).

For a needy and poor person to come to you, is a gift to you from Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala.

The skin of a beloved or favorite person becomes soft just like his heart. His dedication is prominent. The softness of his skin and heart is noticeable and he finds peace only in the Remembrance of his Creator.

To find a person steadfast on Truth are far and few, but many are those with status, dignity and high moral values.

No matter how destitute a person is, he should never feel subjugated.

When a person’s tongue becomes quiet and friendly then his heart becomes pious and clean.

If I sleep at night and awake in the morning repentful, then I find this better in comparison to staying awake the whole night and rising up in confusion.

To do the most disliked of occupations is better than begging.

Sin in any manner would at some time, make ones heart restless.

Remember your kaffan (shroud for covering the dead) instead of beautiful clothes, remember the grave instead of the luxuries of lavish mansions and remember all that delicious foods you feast on shall one day make you a delicious feast for the worms.

Seeking help ,Visiting Shrine of Ambiya ,Auliya & Pious people with Quran & Hadith references.

We are living in a world of uncertainty and misconceptions. Man is beginning to question the very roots of his beliefs for Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim, to create doubt in the minds of the simple and unsuspecting Muslims.”


“Here is proof from QURAN, Ahadith-e-Nabawi (Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam), Sayings of Sahab-e-Kiram and from the writings of great and authentic scholars of Islam and writings of those who declare this as SHIRK, BID’AT etc. which show beyond a shadow of a doubt that Visiting Graves and Shrines of Anbia (Alaihimus Salam) and Aulia ALLAH (Rehmatullah Alaihi Ajamaien) is Lawful.”

Chelum aur Fatiha ki Dalil

Virtues (Azmat) of Ahlul Bayt (سلام الله عليه)

Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala says in the Holy Qur’an:

قل لا أسألكم عليه أجرا إلا المودة في القربى
say (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) “I do not ask any fee from you upon this, except the love between close ones”
[Surah al-Shoora, Verse 23]

Sa’eed bin Mansur in his Sunan narrates from Sa’eed bin Jubayr Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu, He said:

قربى رسول الله صلى الله تعالىٰ عليه وسلم
In this verse close ones refers to the relatives of the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam.
[Jami’ al-Bayan, Vol. 11, Page 144 | Zakhair al-‘Uqba, Page 33, Durr al-Manthur, Vol. 5, Page 701 | Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 3, Page 288]

This reveals that love for the Muslim relatives of the beloved Prophet through either blood or marriage is obligatory (Fard) upon each and every Muslim, neglect of which will prompt questioning by Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala.


Following are the few out of many sacred and blessed Ahadith containing the virtues of the Ahl al-Bait al-Kiraam Alaihim ar-Ridwan and thereby reveal the rank of the beloved Prophet’s Ahl al-Bait and relatives.
ahle bait

Virtues of the Ahl al-Bait al-Kiraam
— may Allah be well pleased with them all —
 

Imam Ahmad; Tirmidhi who denoted it sahih; Nisa’i and Haakim narrated it from Muttalib bin Rabee’a that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said to Sayyiduna Abbas Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu

والله لا يدخل قلب امرئ مسلم إيمان، حتى يحبكم لله ولقرابتي
‘By Allah, Imaan (faith) will not enter the heart of a Muslim until he loves you for Allah and for my relationship.’
[Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 1, Page 342, Hadith 1780 | Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 610, Hadith 3758 | Sunan Nisa’i, Vol. 5, Page 51, Hadith 8175 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 4, Page 85, Hadith 6960]
 

The Love of the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam and his family is proven from this hadith because without it no Imaan is acceptable. Loving them because of Allah means that the love be based on faith and which one must have for another Muslim because of his faith whilst love because of their relationship with the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam means that the love be based on their relationship with the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam.  This reveals that one should have double love for the Muslim relatives of the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam; firsly because of their Imaan and secondly because of their relationship with the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam.

Muslim, Tirmidhi and Nisai narrated from Zaid bin Arqam that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

أذكركم الله في اهل بيتي
‘I remind you of Allah (to fear Him) about my Ahl al-Bait.’
[Sahih Muslim, Vol. 4, Page 36, Hadith 1837 | Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 5, Page 492, Hadith 18780 | Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Vol. 4, Page 62, Hadith 2357]

Tirmidhi, denoting it Hasan, and Tabarani narrated from Ibn Abbas the the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

أحبوا الله لم يغذوكم به من نعمه وأحبوني لحب الله وأحبوا أهل بيتي لحبي
‘Love Allah because of what He gave you from His blessings; Love me because of the Love of Allah and Love my Ahl al-Bait because of my Love.’
[Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 622, Hadith 3789 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 3, Page 162, Hadith 4716 | Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 3, Page 46, Hadith 2638 | Bayhaqi in Shau’ab al-Iman, Vol. 2, Page 13, Hadith 1378]

The reason and causes of love have been described in this hadith. Love of Allah should be because He is our Creator and Nourisher; Love for the Prophet should be because he is Allah’s Prophet and Beloved and Love for the Prophet’s family should be because it is his family.

Tabarani and Haakim narrated from Ibn Abbaas that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

يا ابن عبد المطلب: اني سالت الله لكم تلاثاً ان يثبت قلوبكم وان يعلم جاهلكم ويهدي ضالكم وسالته ان يجعلكم جودآء نجدآء رحمآء فلو ان رجلاً صفن بين الركن والمقام فصلى وصام ثم مات وهو مبغض لاهل بيت محمد دخل النار
‘O Children of Abdul Muttalib, I asked Allah three things for you; that He keeps your hearts steadfast (upon Islam); that He teaches the Deen to your ignorant and illiterate and guides your astray, and that He make you kind, generous and affectionate to one another. So if a man prays, standing between the Rukn and Maqaam, and fasts but dies with malice for the Household of Muhammad he has entered Hell.’
[Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 11, Page 142, Hadith 11412 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 3, Page 162, Hadith 4712]
 

Tirmidhi, denoting it Hassan, and Haakim narrated from Zaid bin Arqam that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

إني تارك فيكم ما إن تمسكتم به لن تضلو بعدي: كتاب الله وعترتي أهل بيتي ولن يفترقا حتى يردا علي الحوض، فأنظروا كيف تخلفوني فيهما
‘Verily I am leaving in you that to which if you firmly hold onto you will not go astray after me; The Book of Allah and my family the Ahl al-Bait. These two will not be separated until they meet me at the Fountain (of Kawthar), so look (take care) at how you deal with them after me.’
[Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 626, Hadith 3788 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 3, Page 160, Hadith 4711]
 

Imam Torpashti Alaihir raHmah states that family here refers to the Prophet’s Pure wives and very closest relatives. Holding onto them means loving and respecting them, acting upon their narrated ahadith and trusting and relying upon their statements. This is also the station of the Prophet’s companions, it is important to love them, act upon their narrated ahadith and trust and rely upon their statements.  The Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam said ‘My companions are like the stars, whichever of them you follow you will find guidance’ (Mirqaat).

Tabarani narrates from Ibn Abbas that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

بغض بني هاشم والانصار كفر وبغض العرب نفاق
‘Malice for the Bani Haashim (migrants) and Ansaar is kufr (heresy) whilst malice for the Arabs is hypocrisy.’
[Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 11, Page 118, Hadith 11312]

Ibn Adee in Al-Kaleel narrates from Abu Sa’eed Khudri Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

من ابغضنا اهل البيت فهو منافق
‘He is a hypocrite who has malice for our Ahl al-Bait.’
[Jawahir al-Aqdain, Vol. 2, Page 25]
Imam Samhoodi narrates this in Jawaahir ul Aqdain and related it to the musnad of Imam Delmi and reported that Sayyiduna Jaabir stated ‘We would recognise the hypocrites by their malice for Sayyiduna Ali’. This has been narrated by Imam Tirmidhi and Ahmad with his sanad.

Tabarani narrates from Imam Hasan bin Ali that he said to Muaawiyya bin Khudayj:

يا معاوية بن خديج اياك وبغضنا فان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: لا يبغضنا احد ولا يحسدنا احد الا زيل يوم القيامة عن الحوض بسياط من نار
‘O Muaawiya Ibn Khudayj guard yourself from having malice for us because undoubtedly the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said ‘No one has malice for us and no one is envious of us except on the day of Qiyaamah he will be kept away from the fountain by whips of fire.’
[Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 3, Page 81, Hadith 2726 and Al-Awsat, Vol 3. Page 203, Hadith 4426]

Ibn Adee and Bayhaqi, in Shau’ab ul Imaan, narrated from Sayyiduna Ali the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said
من لم يعرف حق عترتي والانصار فهو لاحدى ثلاث اما منافق واما لدينه واما لغير طهرو يعني حملته امه على غير طهر
‘Whosoever did not recognize the right of my family and Ansaar is one of three; either a hypocrite, born illegitimate or conceived by his mother whilst she was impure.’
[Ibn Adee in Al-Kaamil, Vol. 3, Page 106 | Shau’ab al-Iman, Vol. 2, Page 232, Hadith 1614, Daylami in Al-Firdaws, Vol. 3, Page 662, Hadith 5955]
 
Tabarani in Awsat narrates from Hassan bin Ali that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

الزموا مودتنا أهل البيت فانه من لقي الله وهو يودنا دخل الجنة بشفاعتنا والذي نفسى بيده لا ينفع عبداً عمل عمله الا بمعرفة حقنا
‘Make the love of our Ahl al-Bait compulsory for whoever meets Allah having love for us shall enter paradise with our intercession and By He in whose Hand is my life no deed will benefit a servant except by recognizing our right.’
[Tabarani in Al-Awsat, Vol. 3, Page 122, Hadith 2251 | Al-Shifa, Vol. 2, Page 48]

Ibn Shayba and Musadad in their respective Musnads; Hakeem Tirmidhi in ‘Nawaadir Al Usool’, Abu Ya’laa and Tabarani narrated from Salama bin Aku’ that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

الندم أمان لأهل السماء وأهل بيتي أمان لأمتي
‘The stars are the refuge for the people of the Heavans and my Ahl al-Bait is the refuge for my Ummah.’
[Ibn Hajar in Matalib al-Aaliya, Vol. 4, Page 262, Hadith 3972 | Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 7, Page 22, Hadith 6260 | Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 12, Page 101]

Tabarani narrates from Abu Dhar, who said: I heard the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam say:

مثل أهل بيتي فيكم كمثل سفينة نوح في قوم نوح من ركبها نجا ومن تخلف عنها هلك ومثل باب حطة في بني اسرائيل
‘The example of my Ahl al-Bait within you is the example of the Ark of Nuh within the nation of Nuh; whoever boarded it was saved and whoever stayed behind was destroyed. It is also the example of the ‘Hitha’ of the Bani Isra’eel.’
[Tabarani in Al-Awsat, Vol. 4, Page 283, Hadith 3506 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 2, Page 427, Hadith 3312]
 

The Hitha is mentioned in Surah Baqarah. The Bani Israil were ordered to enter through the door of Bait al-Muqaddas proclaiming Hitha, meaning Oh Allah, forgive our sins. But instead of reciting Hitha some of them proclaimed ‘Hinta’ and so Allah destroyed those who proclaimed that. The relevance of this example is that the one who loves the Ahl al-Bait is (saved like those) proclaiming Hitha whilst those who do not will be destroyed like those proclaiming ‘Hinta’.

Tabarani narrates from Ibn Abbas that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

لا تزول قدما عبد حتى يسأل عن أربع عن عمره فيم أفناه وعن جسده فيم أبلاه وعن ماله فيم أنفقه ومن ابن اكتسبه وعن محبتنا أهل البيت
‘On the day of Judgement the feet of the servant will not move from the grave until he is asked about four matters; His age, the matters in which he spent it; His body, how he expended it’s strength; His wealth, where he spent and how he earned it and about the love of the Ahl al-Bait.’
[Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 11, Page 83, Hadith 11177 | Haytami in Majma’ al-Zawa’id, Vol. 10, Page 346]

Ibn Najjaar in his ‘Taarikh’ narrates from Hasan bin Ali that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

لكل شيء أساس وأساس الإسلام حب أصحاب رسول الله وحب أهل بيته
‘Everything has a base and the base of Islam is the love of the Prophet’s companions and love of his Ahl al-Bait.’
[Jami’ al-Ahadith, Vol. 3, Page 457, Hadith 9778 | Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 11, Page 2319, Hadith 32523 | Al-Musannaf]

Tabarani in Al-Awsat narrates from Sayyiduna Jaabir who heard Sayyiduna Umar saying at the time of his marriage to Sayyiduna Ali’s daughter (Sayyida Umm Kulthoom):

إلا تهنئوني سمعت رسول الله صلى الله علي وسلم يقول: ينقطع يوم القيامة كل سبب ونسب إلا سببي ونسبي
‘Do you not congratulate me! I heard the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam say ‘On the Day of Qiyaamah all Sabab (relations through marriage) and Nasab (relations by blood) will break except my Sabab and Nasab.’
[Tabarani in Al-Awsat, Vol. 6, Page 282, Hadith 5602 | Bayhaqi in Sunan al-Kubra, Vol. 7, Page 107, Hadith 13393]

Daylami narrates from Sayyiduna Ali Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

أدبوا أولادكم على ثلاث خصال حب نبيكم وحب أهل بيته وعلى قراءة القرآن فان حملة القرآن في ظل الله يوم لا ظل إلا ظله مع أنبيائه وأصفيائه
‘Teach your children three things; Love of your Prophet; Love of his Ahl al-Bait and the recitation of the Quran. Verily the learned of the Quran will be with the Prophets and the pious (Awliyaa) in the shade of Allah’s mercy on the day (of Qiyaamah) when there will be no shade but His.’
[Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 16, Page 456, Hadith 45409 | Kash al-Khifa, Vol. 11, Page 74, Hadith 34157]
 

The learned of the Quran are those of Correct Aqeedah (belief) who sought the knowledge of the Quran and taught it to others and also includes all those who helped them in this.

Daylami narrates from Sayyiduna Ali Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

أثبتكم على الصراط أشدكم حباً لأهل بيتي وأصحابي
‘The most steadfast of you on the Bridge (on the day of Qiyaamah) will be the one with the most love for my Ahl al-Bait and my companions.’
[Ibn Adee in Al-Kaamil, Vol. 2, Page 2304 | Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 12, Page 96, Hadith 34157]
 

This hadith proves that the most steadfast on the bridge will be the one who combines in his heart the love of the Ahl al-Bait and the love of the Prophet’s Noble Companions. Praise be to Allah, this characteristic belongs to the Ahl as-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah.

Daylmi narrates from Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

اشتد غضب الله على من آذاني في عترتي
‘Allah’s most severe wrath (punishment) will be upon the one who pains me regarding my family.’
[Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 12, Page 93, Hadith 34143]

Based on this hadith the corrupt Yazeed and his aids, Ubaidullah bin Ziyaad, Shimar etc, who martyred and tormented Sayyiduna Imam Hussain and the leading lights of his family, are worthy of Allah’s wrath’. In Zakhair ul ‘Uqba, Page 83 Imam Tabarani narrates from Sayyiduna Ali ‘Allah’s most severe wrath, the wrath of the Prophet and the wrath of the Angels is upon the one who shed the blood of the Prophet and pained him over his household’

Ibn Asakir narrates from Sayyiduna Ali that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

من صنع إلى احد من أهل بيتي يداً كافأته يوم القيامة
‘Whoever does a good to one of my Ahl ul Bait (pure wives and respected children) I will return the favour on the day of Qiyaamah.’
[Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 12, Page 95, Hadith 34152]

Tabrani narrates from Sayyiduna Umar that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

كل بني أنثى فان عصبتهم لأبيهم ما خلا ولد فاطمة فاني عصبتهم فانا أبوهم
‘The Asba’ (tribe) of all the children of women is from the father except the children of Fatima because I am their Asba (tribe) for I am their father.’
[Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 3, Page 44, Hadith 6631 | Haytami in Majma’ al-Zawa’id, Vol. 4, Page 224]

Daylmi narrates from Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

أهل بيتي والأنصار كٌرشي وعيبتي وصحابي وموضع مسرتي وأمانتي فاقبلوا من محسنهم وتجاوزوا عن مسيئهم
‘My Ahl ul Bait and the Ansaar are my wealth, my body, my household and my family, the locus of my happiness and my trust. So accept the good deeds of their good and overlook the mistakes of any of them (not from the Hudood of Allah).’
[Daylami in Al-Firdaws, Vol. 1, Page 407, Hadith 1645]

Haakim, in his Taarkh, and Daylami narrated from Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

ثلاث من حفظهن حفظ الله له دينه ودنياه ومن ضيعهن لم يحفظ الله له شيئاً حرمة الإسلام وحرمتي وحرمة رحمي
‘Whoever safeguards three matters Allah will safeguard his Deen and Duniya and whoever loses them Allah will not protect anything for him; the sanctity (not openly opposing) of Islam (its commandments); my sanctity and the sanctity of my (muslim) relatives.’
[Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 3, Page 162, Hadith 2881 and Al-Awsat, Vol 1. Page 126, Hadith 205]
 

Ibn Hibban, in his sahih, and Haakim narrated from Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed Khudri that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

والذي نفسي بيده لا يبغضنا اهل البيت رجل الا ادخله الله النار
‘By He in whose Hand is my Life no man will have malice for my Ahl ul Bait except that Allah will put him in Hell.’
[Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 3, Page 126, Hadith 4717 | Sahih Ibn Hibban, Vol. 15, Page 435, Hadith 6978]

After mentioning this hadith Imam Haakim said that it is upon the conditions of Bukhari and Muslim but that they did not narrate it in their sahih.

Daylami narrates from Sayyiduna Ali Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

أربعة أنالهم شفيع يوم القيامة المكرم لذريتي والقاضي لهم الحوائج والساعي لهم في أمورهم عند ما اضطروا إليه والمحب لهم بقلبه ولسانه
‘I will intercede (specifically) for four people on the day of Judgement ‘The one who respected my family; the one who fulfilled their needs; the one who ran and came to their aid when they were helpless and the one who loved them (my family) with (both) his heart and his tongue.’
[Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 12, Page 100, Hadith 34180 | Zakhair al-‘Uqba, Page 50]

Daylami narrates from Sayyiduna Ali Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said

خير الناس العرب وخير العرب قريش وخير قريش بنو هاشم
‘The best of the people are the Arabs; the best of the Arabs are the Quraysh and the best of the Quraysh are the Banu Hashim.’
[Daylami in Al-Firdaws, Vol. 1, Page 178, Hadith 2892]

 

وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلاَ تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ ٱلْجَاهِلِيَّةِ ٱلأُولَىٰ وَأَقِمْنَ ٱلصَّلاَةَ وَآتِينَ ٱلزَّكَـاةَ وَأَطِعْنَ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ ٱللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُـمُ ٱلرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ ٱلْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيـراً

Translation: And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance; and establish regular Prayer, and give regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless. (Quran-33:33)

                            In Light of Quran

The Wives of the Prophet are Members of His Household (Ahl Al-Bayt)


إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُـمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيــراً

Translation: Allah wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs from you, O members of the family, and to purify you with a thorough purification[33:33]


Tafsir Ibn Kathir:
This is a clear statement that the wives of the Prophet are included among the members of his family (Ahl Al-Bayt) here, because they are the reason why this Ayah was revealed, and the scholars are unanimously agreed that they were the reason for revelation in this case, whether this was the only reason for revelation or there was also another reason, which is the correct view. Ibn Jarir recorded that `Ikrimah used to call out in the marketplace.


إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُـمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيــراً

 

Translation:Allah wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs from you, O members of the family, and to purify you with a thorough purification[Quran-33:33]

Tafsir Ibn Kathir: “This was revealed solely concerning the wives of the Prophet.” Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that Ibn `Abbas said concerning the Ayah

The Family of Fatimah (سلام اللہ عليھا) is the Ahl-ul-bait (People of the House)


إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُـمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ

Translation: Allah wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs from you, O members of the family. [Quran-33:33]


Tafsir Ibn Kathir:
“It was revealed solely concerning the wives of the Prophet .” `Ikrimah said: “Whoever disagrees with me that it was revealed solely concerning the wives of the Prophet , I am prepared to meet with him and pray and invoke the curse of Allah upon those who are lying.” So they alone were the reason for revelation, but others may be included by way of generalization. Ibn Jarir narrated that Safiyyah bint Shaybah said: “`A’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, said, `The Prophet went out one morning wearing a striped cloak of black camel’s hair. Al-Hasan, may Allah be pleased with him, came and he wrapped him in the cloak with him. Then Al-Husayn, may Allah be pleased with him, came and he wrapped him in the cloak with him. Then Fatimah, may Allah be pleased with her, came and he wrapped her in the cloak with him. Then `Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, came and he wrapped him in the cloak with him, then he said:

 

إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُـمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيــر

Allah wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs from you, O members of the family, and to purify you with a thorough purification.) This was recorded by Muslim.

في بيتي نزلت { إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت } وفي البيت فاطمة، وعلي، والحسن، والحسين. فجللهم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بكساء كان عليه، ثم قال ” هؤلاء أهل بيتي فاذهب عنهم الرجس، وطهرهم تطهيراً “

This ayah was revealed in my house when in the house were present Fatima, Ali, Hassan and Hussain (Ridhwan Allaho Ajmain). The Prophet (Peace be upon him) covered them in his own cloak and then said: (O Allah) these are my Ahlul Bayt, remove all abomination from them and make them pure and spotless [Tafsir Dur ul Munthur, Volume No. 5, Page No. 563]

وأخرج ابن جرير وابن أبي حاتم والطبراني عن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ” نزلت هذه الآية في خمسة: فيّ، وفي علي، وفاطمة، وحسن، وحسين، { إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ويطهركم تطهيراً } “.

 

Translation: Imam Ibn Jarir, Ibn Abi Hatim and Imam Tabarani narrate from Hadrat Abu Sa’id al Khudri (ra) who narrates from the Prophet (Peace be upon him) who said: This ayah is revealed about 5 personalities (1) Myself (2) Ali (3) Fatima (4) Hassan and (5) Hussain (Allah’s Peace and blessings be upon them all)

“It is narrated by ‘Ammār bin Yāsir (RA) that a beggar came up to ‘Alī (RA) and stood beside him. He was kneeling in prayer. He (the beggar) pulled out his ring and he gave the ring to the beggar. Then ‘Alī (RA) called on the Prophet (SAW) and told him the news.At this occasion, this verse was revealed to him: (Surely your (helping) friend is Allāh and His Messenger and (along with them) are the believers who establish prayers, pay zakāh and bow down (in humility before Allāh (SWT)). Allāh’s Messenger (SAW) read out the verse and said: One who has me as his master has ‘Alī as his master. O Allāh! Be his friend who befriends him (‘Alī) and be his enemy who is his enemy.”

Hadith #18

عن البراء بن عازب رضي الله عنه، قال: كنا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم في سفر، فنزلنا بغدير خم، فنودي فينا: الصلاة جامعة، وكسح لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم تحت شجرتين، فصلى الظهر وأخذ بيد علي رضي الله عنه، فقال: ألستم تعلمون أنى أولى بالمؤمنين من أنفسهم؟ قالوا: بلى. قال: ألستم تعلمون أنى أولى بكل مؤمن من نفسه؟ قالوا: بلى. قال: فأخذ بيد علي رضي الله عنه، فقال: من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه، اللهم! وال من والاه، وعاد من عاداه. قال: فلقيه عمر رضي الله عنه بعد ذلك، فقال له: هنيئا يا ابن أبي طالب! أصبحت وأمسيت مولى كل مؤمن ومؤمنة
Translation:“It is narrated by Barā’ bin ‘Āzib (RA): We were on a journey with Allāh’s Messenger (SAW). (On the way) we stayed at Ghadīr Khum. There it was announced that the prayer was about to be offered. The space under two trees was cleaned for Allāh’s Messenger (SAW). Then he offered the zuhr (noon) prayer, and, holding ‘Alī’s hand, he said: Don’t you know that I am even nearer than the lives of the believers? They said: Why not! He said: Don’t you know that I am even nearer than the life of every believer? They said: Why not! The narrator says that he said while holding ‘Alī’s hand: One who has me as his master has ‘Alī as his master. O Allāh! Befriend the one who befriends him (‘Alī) and be the enemy of one who is his enemy. The narrator says that after this ‘Umar (bin al-Khattāb (RA)) met ‘Alī (RA) and said to him: O Ibn Abī Tālib! Congratulations, you have become the master of every male and female believer, morning and evening (for ever).”

Salafi / Wahabi Scholar Ibn Taymiyyah’s love for Ahle Bait / bayt ?????

Ibn Taymiyyah’s Love for Ahle Bayt—One of the harshest opponents of the Shia was Ibn Taymiyyah, and because of this, some of the Shia have slandered him by claiming that he was a Nasibi (i.e. hater of Ahlel Bayt). Answering-Ansar refers to him as “Imam of the Nasibis, Ibn Taymiyya”. And yet, Ibn Taymiyyah was a lover of Ahlel Bayt; not only did he love the Ahlel Bayt, but he publically declared the necessity of loving the Ahlel Bayt as a part of the creed of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah. Let us narrate what Ibn Taymiyyah wrote in his most famous book, Al-Aqeedah Al-Wasitiyyah; he said: “They (the believers) accept what has been reported continuously from the Prince of the Believers Ali Ibn Abi Talib…” (Ibn Taymiyyah, Al-Aqeedah Al-Wasitiyyah, Chapter 4)

Ibn Taymiyyah said further: “The best men of this Ummah after its Prophet are: Abu Bakr; then Umar; third: Uthman; and fourth: Ali Ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with them all).” (Ibn Taymiyyah, Al-Aqeedah Al-Wasitiyyah, Chapter 4)

In regards to the Prophetic Household, Ibn Taymiyyah said: “The Ahlus Sunnah should love the Prophet’s family, give them support, and honor the Prophet’s will in regards to them, as he said at Ghadir Khumm: ‘I ask you by Allah to take care of my family; I ask you by Allah to take care of my family.'” (Ibn Taymiyyah, Al-Aqeedah Al-Wasitiyyah, Chapter 4)

Explaining the Sunni creed, said: “They (Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah) love the people of the household of the Messenger of Allah; they regard them with love and loyalty, and they heed the command of the Messenger of Allah concerning them…but they reject the way of the (Shia) Rafidhis who hate the Sahabah and slander them, and they reject the way of the Nasibis who insult Ahlel Bayt in words and deed.” (Ibn Taymiyyah, Majmoo al-Fatawa, 3/154)

Ibn Taymiyyah was so aggrieved by the death of Hussain at Kerbala, that he said the following: “May Allah curse his killers, and whoever was glad with his murder!” (Ibn Taymiyyah, Majmoo al-Fatawa, Vol.4, pp.403-404) Note: Ibn Taymiyyah did not mention any names, as it is not the practice of the Sunnis to revile the dead by name or person, but rather Ibn Taymiyyah stated a conditional and general statement, i.e. whoever killed Hussain ibn Ali is to be cursed.

It is altogether interesting how careless the Shia are when it comes to throwing around insults of being Nasibi! It is very similar to the irresponsible attitude of Israeli Zionists who throw around insults of being anti-Semitic if anyone insults Israel. The Shia define a “Nasibi” to be one who insults the Shia, and in actuality their definition of the word has nothing at all to do with the Ahlel Bayt! How dishonest is Answering-Ansar’s claims that Ibn Taymiyyah was a Nasibi: which Nasibi in his right mind would call for the obligation of loving the Prophetic Household? Which Nasibi would claim that Ali ibn Abi Talib was from amongst the four greatest men in all of Islamic history? Would not a Nasibi be happy at the death of the Prophet’s grandson? And yet Shaykh al-Islam curses those who killed Husayn ibn Ali and those who are happy over his murder!

The Shia propagandists refer to us as “Takfeeris” and other such things, but the reality is that it is they who are guilty of this! Let us remind the reader that in Shia Fiqh a “Nasibi” is considered worse than a Kaafir. Notice how easily the Shia propagandists refer to people as “Nasibis”; we have no doubt that Answering-Ansar will one day refer to us as Nasibis! Why then should the Shia ever complain about “Takfeeri Sunnis” when they themselves are guilty of worse than this? In fact, we are hard-pressed to find a single rebuttal on Answering-Ansar where they refrain from calling the Sunni author to be a Nasibi. Calling someone a Nasibi is Takfeer, and it is in fact worse than Takfeer!

..:: Sayings of Exalted Khulafa ar-Rashideen ::..

Shaykh al-Islam Imam Shahabuddin Ahmad Ibn Hajar al-Haytami al-Makki al-Shafii (radi Allahu anhu) in his distinguished book An Neâmatul Kubra quotes the blessed sayings of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen concerning Mawlad Shareef. Few of these narrations are being quoted below:

Hadrat Syyeduna Abu Bakr as-Siddique (radi Allahu anhu) says,

قال أبو بكر الصديق رضي الله عنه من أنفق درهما على قراءة مولد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم كان رفيقي في الجنة
Which ever person spends one dirham on the birthday of the Holy Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi Wa Sallam), He will be with me in Jannah.

Hadrat Sayyeduna Umar al-Farooq (radi Allahu anhu) says,

قال عمر رضي الله عنه من عظم مولد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقد أحيا الإسلام
Whosoever has respected the Mawlad Shareef of the Holy Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi Wa Sallam) it is as though he has revived the Deen.

Hadrat Sayyeduna Uthman (radi Allahu anhu) says,

قال عثمان رضي الله عنه من أنفق درهما على قراءة مولد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فكأنما شهد غزوة بدر وحنين
Whosoever has spent one dirham on the Birthday of the Holy Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi Wa Sallam), it is as though He was present in Ghazwa-e-Badr and Hunain.

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ali al-MurtaDa (radi Allahu anhu) says that,

قال علي رضي الله عنه وكرم الله وجهه من عظم مولد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وكان سببا لقراءته لا يخرج من الدنيا إلا بالإيمان ويدخل الجنة بغير حساب
Whoso ever respects the Mawlid Sharif and is a means of motivating a Milad function, He will take from this world the gift of Imaan and He will enter Jannah without any questioning.

(AnNeâmatul Kubra Pages 7/8 “ Published Istanbul-Turkey)

..:: What Does other SAHABA-E-KIRAM Believe? ::..

هاجرت إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقدمت عليه منصرفه من تبوك، فأسلمت، فسمعت العباس بن عبد المطلب يقول: يا رسول الله إنى أريد أن أمتدحك، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قل، لا يفضض الله فاك
After gaining victory and success in Ghazwa Tabook when Rasoolullah (Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam) arrived in Madinatul Munawwara, Hadrat Sayyiduna Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) requested permission of the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam) to read a few stanzas in his praise then Rahmate Alam (Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam) said,  My dear Uncle! Go ahead. May Almighty Allah keep your mouth well.

This is what al-`Abbas ibn `Abd al-Muttalib said:

من قبلها طبت في الظلال وفى مستودع حيث يخصف الورق
ثم هبطت البلاد لا بشر أنت ولا مضغة ولا علق
بل نطفة تركب السفين وقد ألجم نسرا وأهله الغرق
تنقل من صلب إلى رحم إذا مضى عالم بدا طبق
وردت نارا لخليل مستترا في صلبه أنت كيف يحترق
ثم احتوى بيتك المهيمن خندف علياء تحتها النطق
وأنت لما ولدت أشرقت الارض ونارت بنورك الافق
فنحن في ذلك الضياء وفى النور وسبل الرشاد نخترق

Before you came to this world,
you were excellent in the shadows and in the repository (i.e. loins)
in the time when they (Adam and Eve) covered themselves with leaves.
Then you descended through the ages
When you were born, the earth shone
and your light illuminated the horizon.
We travel in that illumination and in the light and in the paths of right guidance.

Mullah Ali al-Qari in his Sharh al-Shifa (1:364) says it is related by Abu Bakr al-Shafi`i and Tabarani, and cited by Ibn `Abd al-Barr and Ibn al-Qayyim respectively in ˜al-Isti`ab and Huda Nabiyy Allah (Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam).

This has been stated in distinguished works of great Muhaditheen such as Imam Jalaluddeen Suyuti, Muhadith ibn Jauzi, Allamah Ibn Hajr, Allamah Halbi, Allamah Dahlaan Makki, Allamah Nibhaani, Allamah ibn Abdul Birr, Allamah Haakim, Allamah Ibn Kathir and Allamah Sharistaani (radi Allahu Anhumul Ajmaeen).
