“Salafism in India”

salafism

Indian academician and professor at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Madhu Purnima Kishwar, had noted in 2015 how the prime time TV shows and their celebrated anchors hyperventilated at sundry issues in India while overlooking the matters of paramount importance for the national integrity. Drawing a line of difference between patriotism and ‘hysterical jingoism’, she accused a section of the Indian media, particularly the TV channels, of being heedless to the rapid spread of petrodollar Islam in India and its inevitable consequence — the radicalisation of the gullible Muslim youth, notably in the Kashmir Valley.

Kishwar wrote in her Firstpost article: “The traditional benign Sufi Islam is fast giving way to ultra-conservative and fundamentalist Salafi Islam which is expanding the catchment area for jihadi terror groups… In village after village, new Salafi mosques are mushrooming to overshadow the old Sufi mosques. In fact, Sufi shrines are being systematically targeted as being un-Islamic.  While older generation Kashmiris may still go to the Sufi mosques, the excitable youth are flocking to Salafi mosques which spoon-feed them a highly distorted version of world events to show how Islam is under threat and Muslims an endangered species. The siege mentality thus engendered is helping recruit cadres for jihad.”

What Kishwar had noted in 2015 can be vividly seen today not only in the valleys of Jammu and Kashmir but even in the northern Indian states — Uttar Pradesh and Bihar — where Muslims did not appear to be drawn to the jihadist mentality or Islamist militancy.

Recently, I spent a great deal of time in the two Indian states empirically researching the impact of the divisive religious rhetoric on the radicalisation of the Muslims by visiting a number of Salafist madrasas. The question my extensive research attempted to answer is why growing number of the Indian Muslims are flocking to the Saudi-style Islam leaving behind the age-old history of Indian Sufism. After an extensive literature review and exploration of the Salafi textbooks being taught in various Indian madrasas, it appears that an academically important question has received very little attention in those fiery discussions in media or academia.

While India constitutes the largest population of Muslims in the world after Indonesia, it cannot be denied only a tiny number of those in India are getting lured to the extremist Islamist outfits such as Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Taliban and others. This is precisely because Islam in India has been anchored in syncretism and pluralistic tradition. But now several academics, analysts and even media researchers worry about the growing onslaught the petrodollar Salafism on a more accommodative form of Sufi Islam in India.

Of late, the English news channel NDTV ran a two-part research-based documentary titled, “The Shadow of Salafism”. It visited Salafi Madrasas in Uttar Pradesh and Karnataka and found works of controversial Saudi Salafi scholars as part of their syllabi. Perhaps first time in the Indian media’s history, a national TV channel has extensively researched and debated the curriculum of Salafism which is widely taught in the Indian madrasas. The program seemed concerned with the rise of the puritanical and supremacist strain of Islam, known interchangeably as ‘Wahhabism’ or ‘Salafism’.

NDTV analysed whether the extremist, supremacist, and divisive theology of Ibn Taymiyya and Ibn Abdul Wahhab is opening a gateway into religious extremism in India. In an hour-long part one, the Truth vs Hype show – presented by Sreenivasan Jain – traced foreign funds to the Salafist NGOs in India from donors on terror watchlists. Jain also discussed as to why India has held Salafism as one of the factors behind Kashmir unrest.  Travelling to various Salafist madrasas in Uttar Pradesh and to the state’s eastern border with Nepal, Karnataka, Kerala and other vulnerable states of India, Jain and his colleagues did the story with inputs from various Sufi and Sunni scholars.

It is not the case that NDTV dug a lonely furrow in the Indian media by investigating the mystery of the petrodollar-funded Salafism in India. Many other national TV channels and leading newspapers of the country have shown concern over the trail of Saudi-style Islam, and with great gusto. But Jain and his team did an extensive literature review of the Salafist teachings linked with extremism, in consultation with well-versed Islamic scholars and professors.  For instance, Dr Syed Aleem Ashraf Jaisi, head of the Arabic department in Maulana Azad National Urdu University in Hyderabad, appeared on this show to explain the Mardin fatwa — a 13th-century fatwa authored by Ibn Taymiyyah – which is still being adhered to by the world’s jihadist outfits to justify violent extremism. Dr Jaisi has been quoted as saying:

“Terrorist organisations spread all around the world are based on Ibn Taymiyyah’s principles and traditions. These terrorist organisations rely on references taken from Ibn Taymiyyah’s books and particularly his Mardin Fatwa in which he has mentioned that one can kill anyone to achieve his target or defeat enemies or target anyone.”

Similarly, a few other scholars were approached for an informed analysis of the Salafi curricula replete with the teachings of Taymiyyah and his successor Ibn Abdul Wahhab who misconstrued the Quranic verses in an attempt to coin an anti-pluralism theology. He preached a devised worldview by misreading the Qur’an and coining the concepts like “al Walah  wal  Bara” (loyalty with Muslims and disavowal against all non-Muslims including the non-Wahhabi Muslims).

Truth vs Hype show also assessed the influence of Ibn Abdul Wahhab’s intolerant and supremacist theology spreading in many parts of India. In this context, it aired the dissenting views on the textbooks being taught in the Salafi-Wahhabi madrasas. Remarkably, the madrasa rectors confessed in the show that they teach the controversial books like Taimiya’s Majmua Fatawa (compilation of his fatwas), Ibn Abdul Wahhab’s Kitab al-Tawheed (book of monotheism), along with Taqwiyatul Iman (strengthening of the religion) and Sirat-e-Mustaqeem (the straight path) authored by the hardcore Indian clerics Shah Ismail Dehlvi and Syed Ahmad “Shaheed”.

“All these books contain intolerant texts denouncing the syncretic traditions and pluralistic ethos as antithetical to Islam.”

When the channel spoke to the trustees of Salafi mosques, they fervently supported these books vehemently opposing the Sufi culture and tradition because ‘they are contaminated with the influences of non-Muslims’. “Wrong things if done for thousands of years are wrong,” said the Salafist cleric Abdul Wahid Madni, founder of the Safa Educational Society in Domariaganj, Uttar Pradesh.

Thus, the news channel’s show sought to address that academically important question which is rarely discussed in the mainstream media. In such an ideological discourse analysis, journalism coupled with an academic rigour should be emulated to break away from the stereotypical Indian format of “talking heads” discussion on prime time news television.

However, it was astonishing to note that the two-part investigation did not touch upon the Salafist hardliners and their separatist preachers in Kashmir. It left many in the lurch because the channel basically wanted to assess the Indian government’s ‘concern’ over the rise of Wahhabism/Salafism in Jammu and Kashmir, as the show’s intro unravels:“From time to time, the Indian government has warned of the dangers of the rise of puritanical, Saudi-style Islam in India. Most recently, during the unrest in Kashmir, when it warned it will not allow a ‘Wahhabi theocracy’ to take root in the Valley”.

In fact, there is no dearth of well-known Salafi-Wahhabi preachers and their exclusivist sermons in the Valley. But one wonders why NDTV skipped the portrayal of the Salafist preachers in Kashmir who spew venom and misguide the Muslim youth in the valley using the religious platforms.

Just as the channel examined, in the second part of this show titled “Road To ISIS”, as to how some South Indian Salafist preachers delivered speeches filled with religious bigotry and extremism, it could have cited some instances in the Valley too.

Much like Shamsudheen Fareed, a known Salafist cleric in Malappuram whose extremist sermons are cited in the show, the avowed advocate of Salafi mission in Kashmir, Maulana Mushtaq Veeri is not lesser hate-monger. Maulana Veeri has delivered various speeches — all of them filled with the extremist and exclusivist content — in the Valley’s Salafi mosques. Scores of his divisive speeches have been circulated on social media and are still attracting the imagination of the Kashmiri youth towards separatism. Only a single instance is sufficient and substantial evidence on how the ‘Salafi mission’ is being pursued in the religious rhetoric in Kashmir. In his religious sermon (khutba), Maulana Mushtaq Veeri dwells on “the Salafi Mission in Kashmir”. After a lengthy talk in the local Kashmiri language, he speaks in Urdu in the conclusive part of this video. Note these words in his speech:

“Dekha Salafiyon ka kamal, jab salafi maidan men utarte hain to wapis naam lene ka kabhi sochte hi nahi. Ham Islami hukumat qaim kar ke rahenge. Iraq men dekho Abu Bakr naam ke salafi ki hukumat…..kashmir men anqareeb inshaAllah Islami jhanda gaad diya jaega….”

http://sunnilive.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/img_0873.mov

(See the achievement of the Salafis! When the Salafis embark on their mission in the battlefield, they do not back out. Look at the state of the Salafist by the name of Abu Bakr Baghdadi in Iraq… God willing, we will be hoisting the Islamic flag soon in Kashmir…)

“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.

..::: Hazrat Umar Farooq Radi Allah Ta’ala Anhu :::..

“If there were to be a Prophet after me,
he would have been Umar.”(Tirmidhi)

“Amongst the nations before your time, there have been inspired people (who were not Prophets), and if there is one amongst my Ummah, he is Umar”
– Rasulallah (SallallahoalaihiwasallaM)

Introduction

Hazrat Umar (R.A) belonged to the Adi family of Quraish tribe. In the 8th generation, his lineage joins with Rasulallah (s.a.w).He was born in 583 A.C., about forty years before the great Hijrah. The early life of Hazrat Umar is not known in detail. In his youth he was a famous wrestler and orator, and a spirited person. He was one among the few people in Makkah who knew how to read and write. His main occupation was business.When the Rasulallah (s.a.w) recieved the revelation and invited people to Islam, Hazrat Umar initially became the sworn enemy of Islam and Rasulallah (s.a.w), and did not hesitate to harm the Muslims at every opportunity.

Hazrat Umar’s acceptance of Islam

It was the sixth year of Rasulallah (s.a.w)’s mission when the leaders of Quraish called a meeting and asked for volunteers for the assassination of Rasulallah (s.a.w). Hazrat Umar offered himself for this job and everybody in the meeting exclaimed that he was the right person for it. While he was on his way, with a sword in his hand, he met Hazrat Sa’d bin Abi Waqqas who enquired of him about where he was going. Hazrat Umar told him that he was going to murder Rasulallah (s.a.w). After some discussion Hazrat Sa’d said, “You had better take care of your own family first. Your sister and brother-in-law both have accepted Islam”.

Hearing this, Hazrat Umar changed his direction and went straight to his sister’s house. When Hazrat Umar knocked at the door, they were being taught the Holy Qur’anby Hazrat Khabbab (R.A). His sister Fatima was frightened on hearing Hazrat Umar’s voice and tried to hide the portion of the Holy Qur’an she was reciting. When Hazrat Umar entered the house he enquired about their Islam and on finding that they had accepted Islam, he first fell upon his brother-in-law and beat him severely. When his sister intervened he smote her so violently on her face that it bled profusely. On this his sister burst out: “Do whatever you like, we are determined to die as Muslims”.

When Hazrat Umar saw his sister bleeding, he cooled down and felt ashamed. He loved Fatima very much but could not tolerate her conversion to Islam. However, deeply moved, Hazrat Umar asked her to show the pages on which the Holy Qur’an was written. But she was, after all, Hazrat Umar’s sister and told him straight, “You can not touch it unless you take a bath and make yourself clean”.

He then took a bath and read the scripts. It was the beginning of Surah Ta Ha (Chapter 20 of the Holy Qur’an). Finally he came to the verse:

“Lo! I even I, am Allah, there is no god save Me. So serve Me and establish Salat for My remembrance.”(Holy Quran – 20:14)

At this, Hazrat Umar exclaimed, “Surely this is the Word of Allah. Take me to Muhammad (s.a.w)”.

On hearing this Hazrat Khabbab (R.A), who had hidden himself in the house, came out from inside and said, “O Umar! Glad tidings for you. It seems that the prayer of the Rasulallah (s.a.w) which he said last night has been answered in your favour. He prayed to Allah: “O Allah, strengthen Islam with either Umar b. Khattab or Umar b. Hisham, whomsoever Thou pleaseth”.
Hazrat Umar then went to Rasulallah (s.a.w). On seeing him, Rasulallah (s.a.w) asked him, “Umar! what brings you here”? He said, “I am here to accept Islam”.
Hearing this the Muslims shouted with joy, “Allahu Akbar! (Allah is the Greatest)” and the sound echoed though the air of Makkah.

As a matter of fact, Umar’s conversion to Islam was a terrible blow to the morale of the disbelieves. Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ud, a great Companion, says, “Hazrat Umar’s conversion to Islam was a great triumph, his emigration to Madinah a tremendous reinforcement and his accession to Caliphate a great blessing for the Muslims”.

Hazrat Umar gets the title of Al-Farooq (RAu)

The conversion of Hazrat Umar (R.A) strengthened Islam.Before this, Muslims had lived in constant fear of the disbelievers, and most of them were concealing their faith. The Muslims were now able to offer their Salat publicly. When Hazrat Umar (R.A) became a Muslim, he declared his faith openly before the Quraish chiefs. Though they stared at him, they could not do any harm to him. Then once he had been granted permission from Rasulallah (s.a.w), he led a party of the Muslims to the Kabah to offer Salaat. Hazrat Hamza, who had accepted Islam a few days before Hazrat Umar (R.A), carried another party of the Muslims to Kabah.

When all the Muslims gathered in the Kabah, they offered their Salat in congregation. Rasulallah (s.a.w) led this, and it was the first public Salat in the history of Islam. For this courageous and bold action of Hazrat Umar (R.A), Rasulallah (s.a.w) gave him the title of al-Farooq i.e., the one who makes a distinction between the right (haqq) and the wrong (batil).

Migration to Madinah

When the Muslims were ordered to migrate to Madinah, most of them left Makkah quietly and in secret, but Hazrat Umar (R.A) declared it openly.He put on his armour and first went to the Kabah. After performing the Salat, he announced loudly: “I am migrating to Madinah. If anyone wants to check me, let him come out. I am sure that his mother would cry for his life”.There was no man in Makkah to accept the challenge of Hazrat Umar (R.A). Then he migrated to Madinah boldly.

Hazrat Umar’s services to Islam

Hazrat Umar (R.A) had great love for Allah and Rasulallah (s.a.w). He participated in almost all the big battles: Badr, Uhud, Ahzab, Khaibar, Hunain etc. In the expedition of Tabuk, he gave half of his wealth in the path of Allah.He was next to Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A) in the sacrifice of his belongings for the cause of Allah.

Rasulallah (s.a.w) also had a deep love for him. Once he remarked, “Were a prophet to come after me, he would have been Umar”.
In another Hadith mentioned in Bukhari, Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A) narrated that Rasulallah (s.a.w) said, “In Bani Isra’il (Israelites), there were people who were not prophets but talked to Allah. Were anyone in my Ummah like those persons, he would be Umar”.

The death of Rasulallah (s.a.w) was a great shock to him, and he could not believe it until Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A) reminded him of a clear verse of the Holy Qur’an on the subject. He then went to the Council Hall along with Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A) where the people of Madinah had assembled to select the First Caliph. Hazrat Umar (R.A) was the first person to pledge loyalty (Bai’at) at the hand of Hazrat Abu Bakr(R.A), and then helped him throughout the duration of his rule.

Hazrat Umar Farooq – the second Khalifa of Islam

During Hazrat Abu Bakr’s illness he consulted the people about the next Khalifah, and then gave his decision in favour of Hazrat Umar (R.A) who took the charge of Khilafat after the death of Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A) on 22nd of Jamadius Thani 13 A.H. (23rd August 634 AC).
Umar (R.A.) followed fully the ways of Rasulallah (s.a.w) and the policy of his predecessor, Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique, with his characteristic zeal and vigour. It was his strict adherence to the Sunnah of Rasulallah (s.a.w) which helped him to subdue the mighty empires of Persia and Byzantine.

The period of Hazrat Umar’s Khilafat undoubtedly is the Golden Age of Islam in every respect.
He was a man of extraordinary genius who not only moulded the destiny of the nation but made history of his own.

He followed the footsteps of Rasulallah (s.a.w) to the fullest extent. It was Hazrat Umar under whose rule Islam became an international power and the mighty empires of Persia and Byzantine crumbled before the army of Islam.Within ten years of his glorious rule, the whole of the Persian Empire, Syria, Palestine, Egypt and a part of Turkey came under the banner of Islam and the nations entered the fold of Islam.

Martyrdom of Hazrat Farooq-e-Azam (R.A)

In 23 A.H., when Hazrat Umar returned to Madinah from Hajj, he raised his hands and prayed:

“O God! I am advanced in years, my bones are weary, my powers are declining, and the people for whom I am responsible have spread far and wide. Summon me back to Thyself, my lord!”

Some time later, when Hazrat Umar went to the mosque to lead a prayer, a Magian named Abu Lulu Feroze, who had a grudge against Hazrat Umar on a personal matter, attacked him with a dagger and stabbed him several times. Hazrat Umar reeled and fell to the ground.
When he learned that the assassin was a Magian, he said, “Thank God he is not a Muslim.”

The injuries were so serious that the great Khalifa died the next morning.

Before his death, the Muslims asked him about his successor and he appointed a panel of six persons; Hadrat Uthma Zubair, Talha, Sa’d bin Waqqas and Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf (R.A) to select a Khalifah from amongst them within three days after him.

He requested Hazrat Aisha (R.A) for permission for his burial beside Rasulallah (s.a.w), just as Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique expressed the same wish. Though she had reserved that place for herself, on Umar’s request she gave it to him and that is where he was buried.

Wives and Children

Wives:

1. Hazrat Zainab (R.A) accepted Islam but died in Makkah. She was sister of Uthman bin Maz’un. She gave birth to Hazrat Abdullah Abdur Rahman and Hazrat Hafsah (wife of Rasulallah (s.a.w)) were the children she bore to Hazrat Umar.

2. Malkiah bint Jarwal, she did not accept Islam and was divorced in 6 A.H. according to Islamic law. She gave birth to Ubaidullah.

3. Quraibah bint Abi Ummiyah, she also did not accept Islam and was divorced in 6 A.H.

The above three marriages had taken place before Hazrat Umar (R.A.) accepted Islam. After accepting Islam he contracted marriages with the following:

4. Ummi Hakim bint-ul-Harith, she gave birth to a girl named Fatimah.

5. Jamilah bint Asim, she gave birth to a son who was named Asim. She was a Muslim but was divorced for some other reason.

..:: 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

“Ibne Abdul Wahab Najdi Exposed Commits Shirk & Shirk factory”

Page 15, divine text by Imam Mustafa ibn Ahmad ash-Shatti ( Rh)

Translator: Abu Ja`far al-Hanbali

1. Imam Mustafa ibn Ahmed ash – Shatti writes about Ibn Abdul Wahab al Najdi al Tamimi

Some of the major doctrinal positions propounded at variance with Muslim Orthodoxy were as follows

(5) The vast majority of Muslims down through the ages, since the first three generations have slipped into idolatry.

Foot note: Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab said the following: ‘ The best spoken word that could be said was the cause of a Bedouin coming to us one day saying he had heard something about Islam. He said,’ I bear witness that we were kuffar ( he meant all the desert Arabs) and I bear witness that the guard who came to tell us about things is of the people of Islam’. So the man bore witness that he was an unbeliever.’ Sharah Sittah Mawali’min as Sirah,pp 25-26. This indeed shows that this creed was taught to the people. Further could be said by his son and first successor, Abdullah Ala sheikh who stated: ‘Indeed major shirk has become the norm for most of these people due to ignorance spreading and knowledge disappearing.” Al –Kalimat un Nafi atu fil Mukaffirat il Waqi’ah,pp. 15-16.

2. Ibn Abidin al Hanafi (Rh ) writes :

His words and who consider the Companions of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be disbelievers are not a condition for someone to be a kharijite, but rather are a mere clarification of what those who revolted against ‘Ali (Allah Most High be well pleased with him) in fact did. Otherwise, it is enough to be convinced of the unbelief of those they fight against, as happened in our own times with the followers of [Muhammad ibn] ‘Abd al-Wahhab, who came out of the Najd in revolt, and took over the sanctuaries of Mecca and Medina. They followed the Hanbali madhhab, but believed that they were the Muslims, and that those who believed differently than they did were polytheists (mushrikin). On this basis, they held it lawful to kill Sunni Muslims (Ahl al-Sunna) and their religious scholars, until Allah Most High dispelled their forces, and the armies of the Muslims attacked their strongholds and subdued them in 1233 A.H. [1818] (Hashiya radd al-muhtar, 4.262).

3. The Shafi‘i mufti of Mecca, Ahmad ibn Zayni Dahlan (d. 1304/1886), a historian as well as a scholar, recorded the story of the Wahhabis’ takeover of the holy places in a number of books, one of which, his two-volume history al-Futuhat al-Islamiyya [The Islamic conquests], gives the following description of what became perhaps their most famous, and certainly their most lethal ijtihad; namely, that the sunna of tawassul or ‘supplicating Allah through an intermediary’ was shirk:
Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab claimed that his aim in this school of thought he innovated was to make sincere the belief in Allah’s unity (tawhid), and to abjure worshiping false gods (shirk), and that Muslims had been worshipping false gods for six hundred years, and that he had revived their religion for them. He interpreted Qur’anic verses revealed about worshippers of false gods (mushrikin) as referring to those who worship Allah alone…

4. `Allama al-Shaykh Sulayman, elder brother of Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Wahhab: al-Sawa’iq al-Ilahiyya fi al-radd ‘ala al-Wahhabiyya [“Divine Lightnings in Answering the Wahhabis] also writes that ibn Andul Wahab was misguided and considered the muslim population to be involved in “ shirk”.

5.

Tafsir al-Jalalayn is one of the most significant tafsirs for the study of the Qur’an. Composed by the two “Jalals” — Jalal al-Din al-Mahalli 1459 CE(d. 864 AH) and his pupil Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti 1505 CE (d. 911 AH).

Famous Maliki Scholar Ahmad Sawi 1825 CE ( 1241 AH) wrote a commentary ( hashiya) on the above work. This commentary is called Hashiya al-Sawi ‘ ala al-Jalalayn.

Quran 35: 6 ( verse 6 of sura Faatir) states

Truly, the Devil is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy: he only calls his party to become of the inhabitants of the blaze

In explaining this verse, the great scholar Ahmad sawi writes in his commentary

“It is said this verse was revealed about the Kharijites [foretelling their appearance], who altered the interpretation of the Qur’an and sunna, on the strength of which they declared it lawful to kill and take the property of Muslims—as may now be seen in their modern counterparts; namely, a sect in the Hijaz called “Wahhabis,” who “think they are on something, truly they are the liars. Satan has gained mastery over them and made them forget Allah’s remembrance. Those are Satan’s party, truly Satan’s party, they are the losers“ (Qur’an 58:18–19 We ask Allah Most Generous to extirpate them completely”

This is found in 1930 edition , printed in Cairo [‘Isa al-Babi al-Halabi edition, Vol 3 . page 255]

Ibn Abdul Wahab Najdi Al Tamimi and his book “Ahkam tamanni al mawt”.He becomes mushrik as per his false faith defined in Kitab ul Touheed

Ibn Abdul Wahan Najdi al Tamimi has mentioned a very interesting narration in his book Ahkam tamanni al mawt. During the time of Umar (rd) there was a very pious young man. Once this young man was about to commit a grave sin, but Allah saved him. This young man realised his mistake, felt felt very bad and died. When Umar (rd) came to know this , he visited the grave of this young man and asked “ do you have two gardens “ ( 55:46) and this young man replied from the grave that he has been given the blessings of two gardens”….

Here is the scan from Ibn Abdul Wahab najdi al Tamimi’s work.

Haazir-o-Naazir used for Holy Prophet MUHAMMAD (Salallaho Alaihi Wasallam) with Quran & Hadith references.

image1 image2

Some people believe that Allah Ta’ala is “Omnipresent“, that is, Allah Taala is Present and Over-looking at every time and at every place. They believe Allah Ta?ala to be “Haazir” and “Naazir“.
 
his is not true, as Allah Ta’ala is not bound by time and space. Allah Ta’ala is Present and Seeing from eternity without time and without space.
 
Allah Taala’s Attributes, namely, Life, Knowledge, Power and Speech, are without time and without place, so are Allah Ta’ala other attributes. Allah Taala’s Attributes always exists and will continue to exist till eternity.
 
There is a great difference between Allah Ta’ala being Present and the souls of His creation being present. No one is present like Allah Ta’ala being Present.
 
The Angels, the souls of Prophets, the souls of the Awliya Allah and the souls of pious Muslims are present at any place where they are called. They were non-existent, before being present. They will seize to exist after a while. The souls of the creation were absent before it became present there, and will be absent some time later. The presence of the souls is with time and with place.
 
Now that we have explained the concept of Allah Ta’ala being Present and clarified our position with regards to the station of the souls in this respect, we will explain the concept of Haazir (present) and Naazir (over-looking) of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
 
It is the belief of the Ahle Sunnah Wal Jamaat that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is given power by Allah Ta’ala to be Haazir and Naazir.
 
Some persons say that the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaat believes that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is present like Allah Ta?ala is Present. This is totally false because the Ahle Sunnah Wal Jama’at does not have such a belief.
 
The Ulema have used the words “Haazir-o-Naazir” for Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
 
Allah Ta’ala states in the Holy Quran: “How then if I brought from each people a Witness and brought you (O Muhammad ﷺ ) as a Witness against these people”. (Sura al-Nisa: 41) This proves that each Prophet is a Witness for his Ummah, for those who accept Allah Ta’ala and those who reject Him. It also proves that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was present before each Ummah, witnessing their deeds. On the Day of Qiyamah, when they will be questioned about their deeds, they will deny it. Then, Allah Ta’ala will bring the Final Messenger (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) as a Witness and he will testify because he was present there when they were practising evil. 

 
Imam Khaazin (radi Allahu anhu) states, “To be a witness means to be ‘Haazir’ or present.” (Tafseer Khaazin)
 
Hazrat Sheikh Abdul Haq Muhaddis Delwi (radi Allah anhu) writes: “Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is Haazir-o-Naazir on the deeds of his Ummah”. (Haashiya Akhbarul Akhyaar)
 
Allah Ta’ala states in the Holy Quran: “O Prophet! Truly, We have sent you as a Witness, a Bearer of Glad Tidings, and a Warner”. (Sura al-Ahzab: 45) Here Allah Ta’ala says that the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is a witness sent by Him concerning men’s doings and how they receive Allah Ta’ala’s Message. In order to give evidence, a witness has to be present and watching. Even in the Court of Law, a witness is asked, “Did you see the incident taking place?”
 
Allah Ta’ala states in the Holy Quran: “And the Apostle is a Witness over yourselves.” (Sura al-Baqarah: 144) Commenting on this Ayah, Hazrat Shah Abdul Aziz Muhaddith Dehlwi (radi Allahu anhu) writes: “The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is observing everybody, knows their good and bad deeds, and knows the strength of Imaan of every individual Muslim and what has hindered his spiritual progress.” (Tafsir Azizi)
 
Allah Ta’ala states in the Holy Quran: “And keep thy soul content with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, seeking His face and let not thine eyes pass beyond them.” (Sura Kahaf: 28) In this verse Allah Ta’ala is asking Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to keep a close watch on those people who seek Him. He is asked to observe them day and night. Note that no limitation has been imposed – “observe them during your life and after you assume a veil of departure”. This is another proof that the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is watching us 24 hours a day!
 
Allah Ta’ala states in the Holy Quran: “The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is closer to the Believers than their own selves”. (Sura al-Ahzab: 6) Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is with every Muslim. (N.B. Not every Muslim, but every “Mu’min” among the Muslims). That is the reason why the non-Mu’mins feel that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah – sallal laahu alaihi wasallam – is far from them. But it is they who are far from the beloved of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is closer to them than they are to their own selves, irrespective of time and place. He is witnessing their deeds. Allah Ta?ala gives this power to him.
 
It is reported by Hazrat Abdullah bin Umar (radi Allahu anhuma) that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Indeed this entire world is in front of me so that I can observe everything in it. I can see everything in this world and everything that will take place till the Day of Qiyamah. I see the entire world as I see the palm of my hand”. (Mawahib-e-Ladunnia) This Hadith Shareef substantiates the belief of the Ahle Sunnah wal jamaat that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is Haazir and Naazir.
 
Hazrat Qazi Abu Iyaaz (radi Allahu anhu) writes in his “Shifa” that Hazrat Amr bin Dinar (radi Allahu anhu), a Taba’in and Faqih of Makkatul Mukarramah, said: “If you enter a house and find that there is nobody there, say ‘May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)'”. Writing a commentary on this Hadith Shareef, Hazrat Mulla Ali Qari (radi Allahu anhu) says: “This is so because the soul of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is present in every Muslim home”.
 
Hazrat Ali Hameed Saaidi (radi Allahu anhu) has reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “If any of you enters the  Masjid, send Salaams to me, followed by this Du’a: ‘O Allah! Open your Door of Blessing for me'”. (Abu Dawud, Ibne Majah, Baihaqi).

This Hadith proves that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is present in every  Masjid of this world and according to Islam, the entire earth is a  Masjid for the Muslims, as reported by Hazrat Jabir bin Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu) that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The entire earth has been made a  Masjid for me”. (Bukhari Shareef) Thus, the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is present everywhere on earth!
 
The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has stated, “Whosoever sees me in his dream then he will soon see me while awake.” (Bukhari Shareef; Abu Dawood) Commentating on this Hadith, Hazrat Sheikh Abdul Haq Muhadith Delhwi (radi Allahu anhu) says: “This is glad tidings for those who see the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in their dreams that after arriving from the darkness of the Nafs and the completion of the desires of the body they have reached this stage that in reality, without any veil in the condition of awakeness they will have this opportunity of seeing him just like the Awliyah Allah who see him while awake. In this text, this Hadith proves that it is possible and proper to see the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) while awake.” (Ash Atul Lam’aat)
 
The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “I have been sent towards all the creation of Almighty Allah.” (Sahih Muslim Sharif; Mishkaat Sharif) This Hadith Shareef proves that the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is being a witness for those towards whom he was sent as a Prophet.
 
It is written in an authentic Kitaab: “Even due to much objections and differences in the opinions of the Ulema, one does not have any doubt in this case that without any doubt and illusion, the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is continuosly alive and he is Haazir and Naazir in the A’mal of his Ummat and he gives his mercy towards those who turns towards him and he guides them.” (Maktoobat Shareef bar Haashia Akhbaarul Akhyaar Shareef)
 
Hazrat Haji Imdaadullah Muhaajir Makki (radi Allahu anhu) writes: “Our Ulema fight in the issue of Meelad Shareef. The Ulema believed in its permissibility as well. When the side of permissibility exists, why then is there so much hardness on this issue? For us, it is sufficient to follow the people of Haramain (Makkah and Medina). At the time of Qiyaam one should not have the belief of Tawallud (that Rasoolullah – sallal laahu alaihi wasallam – is born now). The possibility of the arrival of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in the Meelad assembly is not wrong because the bodily world is restricted to time and place, but the spiritual world is free from both. So the arrival of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is not far from being possible”. (Shamaime Imdaadiya)
 
Imam Ahle Sunnat, Hazrat Sayed Ahmed Sa’eed Qazmi (radi Allahu anhu) states: “When the word Haazir-o-Naazir is used for Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), it does not mean that the physical body of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is everywhere and that he is present in front of everybody. This in fact means that as the soul exists in every part of the body similarly the light filled reality of the Soul of both the worlds (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) exist in every atom of the worlds. Based on that Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) arrives with his spirituality and lightfulness in many places at one time. Many times, the Pious observe the beauty of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in a state of wakefulness with their physical eyes”. (Taskeenul Khawatir fi Mas’alatil Haazir wan Naazir)
 
Thus we have learnt that Hazrat Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), through the Light (Noor) of his Prophethood, knows the faith of every faithful and the degree of his Imaan and also the obstacles which stand in the way of a faithful’s spiritual advancement. The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) knows our sins, and our spiritual status, and our good and bad deeds, and our sincerity and hypocrisy. His witness is the most acceptable in favour of his Ummah.
 
The Soul of Hazrat Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) observes all the souls and living beings. The deeds of the Ummah are presented to Hazrat Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) every morning and every evening and the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) recognizes (each member) of his Ummah through their actions, and hence, he would be a witness for them. Hazrat Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is a witness for the Believers over their faith, for the non-Believers over their apostasy and for the hypocrites over their dual character.
 
There are some mislead individuals who feel it appropriate to believe that Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has been restricted to his Blessed Grave till the Day of Qiyamah and that it is out of his reach to travel wherever he pleases and to make himself present wherever he pleases.
 
Allah Ta’ala sent all the Prophets to our Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) on the Mi’raj night. He became the Imaam, and they performed two rak’ahs of Salaah. It is thus seen that all the Prophets (alaihimus salaam) made Haaziri (were present) in Musjid al-Aqsa to perform Salaah with our Noble Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) being the Imaam. If Prophets cannot leave their Blessed Graves then how is it that all of the Prophets (alaihimus salaam) were present in Musjid al-Aqsa, on the blessed night of Mi’raj an-Nabi which occured long after the Wisaal of the other Prophets.
 
Shaikh Abd al-Haqq Muhaddith Dehlwi (radi Allahu anhu) states: “Allah Ta’ala has given the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) the strength and power to go anywhere he likes, he can go with his own body or only in soul. On the earth, in the sky, in the grave and the Holy Prophet’s (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) connection stays with his own shrine.” (Madarijun Nabuwat)
 
Imam Jalaaluddeen as-Suyuti (radi Allahu anhu) says, “To keep watch of his own followers’ work and to pray for their forgiveness; to pray for their abstention from bad deeds; to come and go in all parts of the world to give auspiciousness; if one pious person dies from his followers then to come and attend his Janazah (funeral), all this is done by the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)”. (Intibahul Azkiyya)
 
It is recorded that at the time of the call to prayer (Adhan) the Shaitaan runs thirty-six miles away and returns in an instant after the completion of the Adhan. (Mishkaat) How can it be, that Allah Ta’ala’s Beloved, Huzoor-e-Aqdas Muhammad Mustafa (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is confined to his Blessed Grave while Shaitaan is freely running up and down, and that too, at high speeds!
 
Besides Shaitaan, even Angels have this ability. The Holy Qur’aan says: “…when death comes to any of you, Our Angels take his soul and they do not fail ” (Surah al-Anaam: 61). Relating to this it is written that, “For the Angel of Death the whole of the Earth is like a tray, so that he may take the souls as he pleases. There is no difficulty for the Angel of Death to take souls, even though there are many and at many different places !” (Tafseer Kabir Khazeen; Ruh-ul-Bayaan)
 
The speed of Jibra’eel (alaihis salaam) is such that, when Nabi Yusuf (alaihis salaam) was thrown into the well, Jibra’eel (alaihis salaam) travelled from Sidratul Muntaha to the bottom of the well. When Nabi Ibraheem (alaihis salaam) was about to sacrifice Nabi Ismail (alaihis salaam) and had his knife on the neck of Nabi Ismail (alaihis salaam), Jibra’eel (alaihis salaam), travelled from Sidratul Muntaha to the earth with a Ram.
 
The above events relate to an Angel and it’s abilities, but men of Allah (Awliya Allah) are also imbued with such powers. Asaf ibn Barkhiya’s taking the throne of Bilqis (the Queen of Sheba) to Hazrat Sulaiman (alaihis salaam) is also reported in the Holy Quran, (Surah Naml, Verses 39 and 40).
 
It is written in the book “Wahhabiyya”: “Tayy al-masaafa, that is, traversing long distances in a moment, is a Karaama (miracle) bestowed upon Awliya’. It is Waajib to believe in this.”
 
Ibn Hajar al-Haitami (radi Allahu anhu) wrote in his Fatawa: “The number of those who said that if a Wali (saint) goes to a very distant place in the West (in a short time) after he has performed the evening Salaat and if the sun has not set there yet, he need not perform the evening Salaat for the second time at that place, are many.”
 
Concerning the questioning (of the dead person) in the grave, the third question that will be asked by the Angels of the grave is, “Ma kunta taqulu fi haqqi hazar rajul” (meaning : “What did you have to say about this person?” (i.e. the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) When this question is asked the veil is removed from the dead person’s eyes so that he can see the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) who will be present (Haazir) in the grave. (Mishkaat Sharif; Sahih Bukhari) From this Hadith we learn that the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is seen by the dead in person and not in some sort of mental thought, because the word “rajul” that is used in the question, in Arabic grammar refers to a real person made of flesh and bones.
 
So ,it is established that every person that dies sees the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in his grave in person. Now, at any given time thousands of people around the world are buried and all these people see the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) at the same time and are asked the same question. This is ample proof that the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) by the Grace of Allah Ta’ala can present himself in many places at the same time. All the ‘Ulama of Ahl as-Sunna agree with this.

 

RASOOLALLAH صلى الله عليه وسلمIS HAAZIR AND NAAZIR
Proof from the Hadith and Awliya Allah

Following the article concerning the undisputable proof from the Holy Quran, the proof
presented here from the Ahadith and the Awliya Allah, would Insha Allah further reinforce the
belief that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is indeed Haazir and Naazir.

Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has stated, “I see the entire world just as how I see the
palm of my hand.” [Jaa’al Haqqu Wazahaqal Baathil]

It is stated in the Hadith that Munkar and Nakeer ask the deceased in the grave, What did you
used to say about this man (Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)? [Mishkaat Shareef]
The marginal notes of Mishkaat state regarding this Hadith, “It has been said that the veils are
lifted for the deceased until he sees the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). This is indeed
a grand glad-tiding.

Hazrat Shaikh Abdul Haqq Muhaddith Dehlwi (Rahmatullah Alaih) writes in its annotation, By
haazar rajulâ it is meant the praised being of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). [Ashiatul
Lamaat ]

Some people are of the opinion that haazar rajulâ (this man) points to the person in the deceased
person as mind i.e. What did you used to say about the person who is present in your mind?
However, this is incorrect because if that truly was the case, a deceased kaafir would not be asked
this question because his mind is free from Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Also, a
kaafir would not reply ,I don’t know to this question, but ask, Who are you referring to? By
him saying Laa Adri❠(I don’t know) proves that he sees Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)
with his eyes but does not recognize him.

This proves that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is present in the grave during the
questioning by Munkar and Nakeer. That is why the Awliya Allah and lovers of Rasoolullah
(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) cherish death, so that they may see their beloved.

Thousands of deceased people are buried at one time throughout the world. So if Rasoolullah
(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is not Haazir and Naazir, how can he be present in all of these
places? It is now proven that there are veils on our vision which will be removed when we leave
this mundane world.

Once, Hazrat Umar Farooq (Radiallahu Taala Anh) sent Hazrat Saariya (Radiallahu Taala Anh) to
Nawaehind as the commander of an army. While performing a Khutba in Madina Shareef, he
began to proclaim, Sariyaah! Take the mountain! After some time, a messenger from that army
arrived and said, The enemies were just about to defeat us when we heard a voice say, Sariyaah!
Take the mountain!” So we put our backs towards the mountain and Allah Taala gave them
defeat.[Mishkaat Shareef]

If that is the state of the blessed companion of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that he
can be at Madinatul Munawwarah and help Hazrat Saariya (Radiallahu Taala Anh) and his army
in Nawaehind, is it so difficult to accept that our Master Muhammad Mustafa (Sallallahu Alaihi
Wasallam) can be at several places at once, assisting his Ummah in times of need and difficulty?
Imam Ahmad Qastalaani (Rahmatullah Alaih) states, There is no difference between the life and
demise of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). He sees his Ummah and knows their
conditions, intentions and secrets at heart. All this is manifest for him with no obscurity.
[Mawaahibul Ladunniyya]

Hazrat Qaazi Ayaaz (Rahmatullah Alaih) writes, Whenever there is nobody in the house to make
Salaam to, say, Salaam be upon you, Ya Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the Mercy
and Blessings of Allah Taala. [Shifa Sharif ]

In the explanation of this extract, Mulla Ali Qaari (Rahmatullah Alaih) states,This is because the
soul (rooh) of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is Haazir in the homes of Muslims.
[Sharha Shifa]

Hujjatul Islam Hazrat Imam Ghazzali (Rahmatullah Alaih) writes,When you go into a  Masjid
then send Salaam to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) because Rasoolullah
(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is present (Haazir) in the mosques. [Mirqaat]
Discussing the internal conditions of Namaaz, during Tashahud, Hazrat Imam Ghazzali
(Rahmatullah Alaih) states, Deem the Noble Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) present and
his being Haazir in your heart and say, As-Salaamu Alaika Ayuhan Nabiyu wa Rahmatullahi wa
Barakaatuh. [Ihya-ul-Uloom, Vol. 1]

Hazrat Imam Jalaaluddin Suyuti (Rahmatullah Alaih) writes, It is proven from the Ahadith and
traditions that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) keeps an eye on his Ummah’s actions
throughout the earth, makes Astighfaar for their sins, and Dua for their afflictions to be removed.
He grants them Barkat and attends the Janaazah of a virtuous person who dies from his Ummah.
[Intibaahul Azkiya]

Imam-e-Azam Imam Abu Hanifa (Radiallahu Taala Anh) states, Ya Rasoolullah (Sallallahu
Alaihi Wasallam), whenever I listen, I hear only your remembrance, and when I look, I am able
to see nothing besides you. [Qaseeda Numaan] Subhaanallah! While living in Kufa Hazrat Imam
Abu Hanifa (Radiallahu Taala Anh) sees Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) everywhere.
Commenting on the Verse, And He is the Dominant over His bondmen and He sends guardians
over you, until when death comes to any of you, Our angels take his soul and they do not fail
[Surah 6, Verse 61], Allama Ismail Haqqi (Rahmatullah Alaih) states,Extracting souls is not
difficult for the Angel of Death, even if there is an extensive amount of souls which are spread
over several places. [Tafseer Roohul Bayaan] Tafseer Khaazin further states,There is no person
in a home or tent not visited by the Malakal Maut twice everyday. If this is the condition of
Malakal Maut, that he can be present at so many places at the same time, then what can be said
about our Master Muhammad Mustafa (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), who is the highest creation
of Allah Taala?

Huzoor Ghaus-e-Azam Shaikh Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jilani (Radiallahu Taala Anh) states,The soul
of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), is watching you. He is pained, at seeing your
state.[Sirral Asraar wa Mazharal Anwaar]

With proof from the Glorious Quran, Ahadith as well as consensus of the Awliya Allah, only a
person who is heedless of the truth could deny the fact that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi
Wasallam) is Haazir and Naazir. If one still does not believe, then it is one’s responsibility to
search for the truth, because after one dies and realizes in the grave, when Rasoolullah (Sallallahu
Alaihi Wasallam) will be visibly present in front of you, then it will be too late.

May Allah Taala grant us the Taufeeq to recognise the truth and to keep away from falsehood and
those who spread falsehood, Ameen.

Love the Prophet ﷺ

Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 10th of September, 2016.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa raḥmatu Llāhi wa barakatuhu.

A‘ūdhu biLlāhi mina sh-shayṭāni rrajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Aṣ-ṣalātu wa s-salāmu ‘alá Rasūlinā Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna wa l-ākhirīn. Madad yā Rasūla Llāh, madad yā Sādāti Aṣḥābi Rasūli Llāh, madad yā Mashāyikhinā, dastūr yā Shaykh ‘Abdu Llāh al-Fā’iz ad-Dāghistāni, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Madad. Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.

Our Prophet (saw) is the biggest gift, biggest favour of Allāh (jj). we have beeen honored to be from his (ﷺ) nation. Thousands of thanks to Allāh (jj). To be from the nation of the Prophet (ﷺ) is something that other prophets wished. The prophets (as) prayed: “we wish were from his (ﷺ) nation, it is ok even if we aren’t prophets”. They all lived with his (ﷺ) love, with his (ﷺ) affection. Because he (ﷺ) is the servant, Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla loves. Whoever Allāh loves, good people love him.

Love of the Prophet (ﷺ) is farḍ on Muslims. The Prophet (ﷺ) says: “Who doesn’t love me more than his mother, father, children – they aren’t real believers”. There is Imān, there is Islām. Imān means to strongly believe in Allāh (jj). That’s a very high degree. Its reward is big here and hereafter. Once you get that taste of belief you can’t enjoy the other tastes of this world. The companions loved our Prophet (ﷺ) with such love. Awliyā’, Tābi‘īn coming after the companions taught that love of the Prophet (ﷺ) to everyone. Allāh helped with that love. Because if you love who Allāh loves, Allāh loves you.

Allāh (jj) created our Prophet (ﷺ) in the most perfect way. He (ﷺ) has the best attributes, also physically. Physically nobody had his beauty. When people sweat, they stink. Our Prophet’s (ﷺ) sweat smelled like rose. Once that smell touched, it wouldn’t go away. Real rose scents now they disappear in 5 minutes. Fake ones stay for 2 days, even if you wash your hand – that’s something else. We want the real one. Because the Prophet’s (ﷺ) was real, the most real one, it wouldn’t go away. His voice, beauty, peace had no equal.

Thanks to Allāh some people still see the Prophet (ﷺ) in their dreams. Some people are delusional and say that they saw the Prophet (ﷺ) in their dreams often. He (ﷺ) rarely appears. Normally you can see him (ﷺ) once or twice. Some people tell as if they saw their friend. They see something else. Because when you see the Prophet (ﷺ) in your dream, that’s happiness. No need even to interpret that dream. He gets the best thing, that’s Allāh’s (jj) gift. Once you see him (ﷺ) no need for anything else. Even interpreting is leaving good manners. You thank Allāh for seeing him (ﷺ), that this blessing, divine gift comes to you. These are holy days.

For the sake of the Prophet (ﷺ), these are beautiful days, that he (ﷺ) showed. Yawmu tTarwiyah. Our Prophet (ﷺ) went to last ḥajj today, to mount ‘Arafāt. First he (ﷺ) went to Muzdalifah, second day in the morning went up to ‘Arafāt, after stopping on ‘Arafāt in the evening, he (ﷺ) gave the khuṭbah the last khuṭbah.

Then he (saw) did the other ḥajj duties. He went down to Muzdalifah, from there to Minā, in Minā he (ﷺ) used to sacrifice an animal. They used to distribute it. They slaughtered a lot. They used to keep some, they didn’t waste it like today. They dried the meat on hot stones, it dried in couple of days. Then they completed the ḥajj, they did Ṭawāf and left. His (ﷺ) sunnah should be practiced but now in this crowd it is impossible to do them. You make intention on the Prophet’s (ﷺ) intention, may Allāh accept it in shā’a Llāh, he (ﷺ) accepts it. Because keeping sunnah equals the reward of 100 martyrs in the end of times. Some say sunnah isn’t necessary, if you like you do it, if not don’t. But people will be rewarded in the eternal life for doing it. Who don’t do it will regret it in the eternal life, saying: “I wish I did it, etc”. It is good to follow each step of our Prophet (ﷺ). May Allāh make it possible for all of us in shā’a Llāh.

Today we are al-ḥamdu liLlāh in very good, very holy day, day of what Prophet (ﷺ), the Beloved one for Allāh, he show us the best things Allāh give us, give us how to be from nation of Prophet (ﷺ). Muḥammad (ﷺ), he’s seal of prophets and he is the Beloved one for Allāh, most Beloved one for Allāh. And Allāh He create everything for his love. And Allāh, He love somebody, make good people to love him. All angels, all believers from jinn and ’ins [men] and angels, other all creatures even animals, everything, they love Prophet (ﷺ). They know about Prophet (ﷺ).

Who not love Prophet (saw)? Shayṭān and his followers, because they are cursed one. Allāh He not like. He didn’t, He did not love them. If love them, they must love Prophet (ﷺ). So who are not happy with Prophet, he is cursed one. Even who will not respect him, he is unlucky. Lucky one who are following Prophet (ﷺ). Because even prophets before Prophet (ﷺ), they were wishing to be one of nation of Prophet (ﷺ) instead to be a prophet. Like this they were loving Prophet (ﷺ) and wishing to be from his nation. So al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are very lucky. And we must appreciate this – thanking for Allāh 1,000 times, 10,000 times, 100,000 times to we are created from nation of Prophet (ﷺ).

And to love Prophet (ﷺ), it is obligatory for believers because Prophet (ﷺ) said “No one can be real believer until he loves me more than his father, mother, family, or even for himself.” We must love Prophet (ﷺ) more than ourself even, more than everything. The most precious thing, mother, father, family, himself. So Prophet is more precious treasure. And it is not bad to love Prophet (ﷺ) because Allāh He create him in most perfect. Most perfect creation for Prophet (ﷺ), spiritual and bodily. Because he’s maybe if say to you love somebody he’s ugly or he is not good behaved, it is difficult to love him. But Prophet (ﷺ), very easy to love him. His everything, he was want for his nation. From his creation until his death, every time he said “O my Lord, forgive my nation. Allāh, guide them to right way.” This is his wish. He not looking for his nation to get benefit from them, to get anything from them. No. Everything he get, Allāh give him the most perfect. Very easy to love him. And it is even his sweat smelling like rose, real rose, not this ḥajjī who are cheating people for putting one and not…, making headache. When it touching, going forever.

Even in dreams sometimes people they dream and smelling his smell. And to dream for Prophet (ﷺ), it is the most reward from Allāh for anybody to be. And it is very rare to get it, may once in life or twice, sometimes it even cannot be like this. Some people, they even for this they dreaming and they seeing another thing, they thought Prophet. It is Prophet (ﷺ) not so cheap to he come for you or for me every day. No, it’s very rare. And no need to ask for meaning for dream if you see Prophet (ﷺ). You must make two raka‘āt shukr. Because this is the most big present from Allāh for you to see Prophet (ﷺ) in your dream.

And he is help who love him. All ṣaḥābah were loving him. All prophets they were loving him. After ṣaḥābah, tabi‘īn, awliyā’, ‘ulamā’, all they were loving him and praising him and teaching people to encourage people to not forget, to not be not care for Prophet (ﷺ). This all time real ‘ulamā’, they are praising and making poems, making good things, all time showing and teaching people love of Prophet (ﷺ). But shayṭān he also not sitting with with not doing anything. Because once they bring him for Prophet (ﷺ). And he must ask him. Prophet (ﷺ) ask shayṭān. And he cannot lie that time. He said “Who is your most enemy for you and you most one you hate him?” He couldn’t say anything. He said “You” for Prophet (ﷺ). Shayṭān this saying. And he is still doing this even for Muslim people. They are not happy with people who are praising Prophet (ﷺ). They say “Too much. You cannot do this. This is shirk. This is that and that”. But it is real.

Awliyā’u Llāh, they are who are teaching people to love Prophet (ﷺ). Al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are in days of his showing us – today tarwiyah for his last ḥajj, Prophet (ﷺ) Ḥajju l-Akbar, meaning when ‘Arafat in Jum‘ah day, Friday. And he is Thursday went by his camel to Muzdalifah and Yawmu t-Tarwiyah they are going like this and a day of sleeping there. Next day they are by camel going to ‘Arafāt. Until maghrib make waqfah. And he make Khuṭbatu l-Wadā‘ and after coming to Muzdalifah. After Muzdalifah – Minā, to cutting, slaughter. And after this he is doing everything. But these days you cannot do everything he done in ḥajj because it is sunnah. And now people by millions and not everybody can do what Prophet (ﷺ).

We are asking forgiveness. We like to do his sunnah. We must do his sunnah because to do his sunnah, it is also they said it is not obligatory. No. “Don’t care for this. Do, only do what enough for ḥajj.” But no we said “Ok, you are free to do sunnah”. It is also for you, Allāh not punishing for sunnah. But when you are in real life and end, forever you will be in jannah you will be very regret to not do anything you can do in this world. Who do this, he will see his benefit from what he done in jannah, in paradise. He wish to have done everything from Prophet (ﷺ) done. Because to do sunnah, it is hundred shahīd. Martyr for each sunnah you do. And al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are thanking Allāh again to be from his nation. Allāh help us to do everything he done from sunnah and farḍ and everything in shā’a Llāh. This is our intention. Allāh accept our intention.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
