Concept of Asking for help other than ALLAH?


Can we ask for help other then ALLAH?

Bismillahir Rehmanir Raheem

Assalat-O-Wassalam-O-Alaika YARASOOL ALLAH

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 un suspecting Muslims.

Here is proof from QUR’AN, Ahadith-e-Nabawi (Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam), Sayings of Sahab-e-Kiram and from the writings of great and authentic scholars of Islam which show beyond a shadow of a doubt that Can we ask for help other then ALLAH?

The distinguished Prophets and illustrious Awliya enjoy a very special proximity with ALLAH and are therefore, Divinely blessed to assist fellow creation. This assistance can be of a spiritual or physical nature and can be rendered while they are alive and even after their death. These Elite Servants of ALLAH offer their help only by the Command of Almighty ALLAH. They do not do anything without the Consent of their Sublime Lord and are always obedient to Him.

The Gracious ALLAH always Showers His Choicest Blessings on His special servants. He addresses them as “His Friends” and no one can imagine or understand this Divinely blessed relation between them. ALLAH States in a Hadith-al-Qudsi:

اوليائي تحت قبائي لا يعرفهم غيري 

“My Awliya are hidden in My Divine Garb and no one knows them besides Me.”

There are numerous Ayahs of the Holy Quran and other Ahadith that speaks about the excellence and powers of the Ambiya and the Awliya. They are Divinely appointed representatives and commissioned by ALLAH to perform special duties in His Kingdom. Since they are the distributors of the Bounties of ALLAH, therefore to seek help from them is actually and in reality seeking the Help of ALLAH. This is so because they are not the enemies of ALLAH but the Friends of ALLAH.

Unfortunately, the Wahabies and Deobandies ignorantly oppose this help as Shirk and regard it as an erroneous belief. This problem did not exist in the long past and peaceful history of Islam. Ibne Abdul Wahab of Najd introduced it a few hundred years ago. It was then imported to the Indo/Pak sub-continent and propagated by the Deobandi/Tableeghi cult. This caused a great deal of confusion in the Ummah and also divided the Muslim community. The Wahabi/Deobandi scholars have written extensively and vehemently condemned the seeking of help from anyone other than ALLAH as Shirk. They claim with baseless proof that such help seeking is Shirk. To this day, many Muslims are still confused on this subject and some have adopted this Wahabi/Deobandi belief in sheer ignorance.

The reality of assistance is that ALLAH must be regarded as the All- Powerful, the Sovereign, the Absolute, the Non-dependent and Infinite Affluent. He has the Power to independently do as He pleases. It is the belief of every Muslim that to attribute these unique qualities to anyone other than ALLAH is Shirk. Surely, no Muslim will attribute this to anyone, other than ALLAH. In fact, he regards certain creations as a medium or Waseela to achieve blessings and fulfillment of desires. This is certainly correct and in order. ALLAH Himself Orders in the Holy Quran:

وابتغوا إليه الوسيلة * “Seek the Waseela towards ALLAH.” (Al-Maidah:35) 

By this we understand that إياك نستعين does not reject the seeking of assistance from other than ALLAH. Similarly, in the reality of existence, it is only ALLAH Who exists without assistance and birth. Then how can it be Shirk if we believe in our existence by His Divine Grace? حقائق الأشياء ثابتةThe reality of things is established.

This is a basic and fundamental article of faith in Islam. Likewise, is the state of the reality of knowledge. Only ALLAH Possesses Absolute and Personal Knowledge and none of His creation possesses the same. All of creation seek from Him and are dependent on ALLAH to inspire them with knowledge. So, if we call a knowledgeable person an Aalim or seek knowledge from an Aalim, is it Shirk? This is not so unless both ALLAH and an Aalim be regarded as the same in status. ALLAH Himself Addresses His servants in the Holy Quran as Aleem and Ulama. Almighty ALLAH refers to Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace Be Upon Him) in this Ayah:

يعلمهم الكتاب و الحكمة * “The Nabi (Peace Be Upon Him) teaches them the Kitaab and wisdom”. (Al-Imran:164)

The same is the situation of seeking assistance (استعانت) because the intention is to use a beloved of ALLAH as a Waseela to beg for His Mercy and Bounties. There is no prohibition in this act because only the creation can be a Waseela and not ALLAH. A Waseela is used to reach someone higher. Who is higher than Allah, that his Waseela is to be used? Who is above Him to fulfill desires and ambitions? ALLAH is pure from being used as a Waseela because nothing is higher than He is. Therefore, it is stated in the Hadith Shareef that a Bedouin came before the Holy Prophet(Peace Be Upon Him) and said;

“Ya Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him)! We make you a Shafee (intercessor) in the Court of ALLAH and present ALLAH to you as a Shafee (intercessor)”. The Beloved Prophet(Peace Be Upon Him) was very displeased with this and repeated سبحان الله سبحان الله  for a long time and replied:

 

ويحك! انه لايستفشع بالله على أحد شأن الله اعظم من ذالك *رواه ابوداؤد عن جبير بن مطعم رضى الله عنه 

“O fool! You do not present ALLAH to anyone as an intercessor. The Integrity of ALLAH is way superior to this”.

A Muslim seeks that assistance from the Ambiya and Awliya that if the same is sought from ALLAH it will earn the displeasure of ALLAH and His Rasool(Peace Be Upon Him). It is an insult to the Divine Integrity of ALLAH to seek this form of assistance. The truth is that if anyone has faith and Imaan in such forms of assistance from ALLAH (to regard ALLAH as a Shafee), he will become a Kaafir. What can be said about the stupidity and ignorance of the idiots who have no respect for Allah, no fear of Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) and no regard for Imaan? They ignorantly include this assistance with إياك  نستعين. They include this with that which is impossible for ALLAH and make it exclusive to Him.

One idiot said:

Woh Kya hay jo nahi Milta Khuda Se
Jisay tum Maangtay ho Aulia Say

What is that you cannot get from ALLAH that you ask from Awliya?

We reply to this:

Tawassul Ker nahi saktay Khuda Se
Isay Hum Maangtay Hain Aulia Se

One cannot use the Tawassul (intercession) of ALLAH and that is what we seek from the Awliya.

We present the Tawassul of Awliya in the Divine Court of ALLAH for our needs so that it may not be rejected. In
the Holy Quran, ALLAH answers this idiotic question and rejection as follows:

و لو انهم إذ ظلموا أنفسهم جاءوك فاستغفروا الله واستغفر لهم الرسول لوجدوا الله توابا الرحيما 

“And when they impose on their lives (sin), they must come to your (the Nabi’s) presence, then seek repentance from ALLAH and the Rasool(Peace Be Upon Him) also asks for their forgiveness. Then, they will indeed find ALLAH Most Forgiving and Compassionate.” (An-Nisa:61)

Can ALLAH Himself not forgive? Why then does ALLAH say, “O Prophet(Peace Be Upon Him)! They must come to your presence and you seek forgiveness for them from ALLAH. Then only will they achieve the gift of forgiveness
from ALLAH.” This is actually our motive but these people do not have the mentality to understand. For ALLAH’S Sake, have justice! Does the Ayah إياك نستعين refer to seeking absolute assistance from ALLAH only, and is seeking assistance only from only Prophets and Awliya regarded as Shirk? Are the Prophets and Awliya only not Allah U? So according to the Wahabies, besides the Prophets and the Awliya, the rest of the creation are Allah U, or the is the Ayah as it takes the name of these two groups that it is Shirk to seek any aid from them and permissible (to seek assistance) from the rest?

It is not so! If seeking assistance is limited absolutely only to ALLAH and forbidden from His creation, then whatever form of aid is sort from anyone other than ALLAH will always be Shirk. Whether it be from human beings or animals, dead or alive, person or attribute, action or condition, they are all other than ALLAH. Now, what is your answer to the Ayah-e-Kareema where Almighty ALLAH States:

واستعينوا بالصبر و الصلوة * “Seek help from Sabr (patience) and Salaah”.

Is Sabr (regarded as) ALLAH that you are ordered to seek assistance from it or is Salaah (regarded as) ALLAH that we are ordered to seek aid from it?

ALLAH States in another Ayah:

و تعاونوا على البرّ و التقوى * “Assist one another in good deeds and piety”. (Al-Maidah:2)

Excuse me sir! If it is absolutely impossible to receive any help from other than Allah, then what is the meaning of this Command of Allah? If it is possible to get assistance from them, then why does the stomach pain?

There are countless Ahadith that clearly command the seeking of assistance from things other than ALLAH. I will list a few here:

·         Assist the evening Ibadah with the Morning Prayer,

·         Seek assistance from the late night prayer (Tahajjud),

·         Seek assistance from recording knowledge. (Notations),

·         Seek assistance from the food of Sehri,

·         Seek assistance from the mid-day siesta (Qaylola),

·         Seek assistance from charity (Sadqa),

·         Assist yourself by not providing clothing to your women so that they are without them. (Fitna),

·         Assist yourself by not begging. (Self-sufficiency)

Are all these things the “Lord” of the Wahabies, that it is commanded to seek assistance from them? If you cannot remember these Ahadith, then listen to them from me.

Tabraani(Radi ALLAH Anho) in Al-Kabeer, Aqeeli(Radi ALLAH Anho), Ibne-Adi(Radi ALLAH Anho) and Abu-Na’eem(Radi ALLAH Anho) in Hilya, Imam Bayhaqi(Radi ALLAH Anho) in Shou’bul-Imaan narrates from Sayyiduna Mu’aaz ibne Jabal(Radi ALLAH Anho). Khateeb(Radi ALLAH Anho) narrates from Ibne Abbaas(Radi ALLAH Anho) and Khal’ee(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his Fawaa’id narrates from Ameeril Moh’mineen Sayyiduna Ali Al-Murtudah(Radi ALLAH Anho). Khara’itee(Radi ALLAH Anho) in Ah’tadaalul-Quloob directly narrates from Ameeril Moh’mineen Sayyiduna Omar Al-Farooq(Radi ALLAH Anho) the Beloved Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him) said, “Success of intentions are in keeping them a secret. So assist yourself from not exposing those secrets”. 

These 10 Ahadith refer to seeking help from actions (أفعال). Now, I will quote 20 Ahadith relating to seeking help from persons so that the total will be 30 Ahadith. 

Hadith no. 11

Imam Ahmad(Radi ALLAH Anho), Imam Abu-Da’ood(Radi ALLAH Anho) and Imam Ibne Maaja(Radi ALLAH Anho) with a Sanad-e-Sahih narrates from Ummul-Moh’mineen Sayyidah Ayesha Siddiqah رضى الله تعالى عنها that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) said:

أنا لا نستعين بمشرك *

We do not seek any help from the Mushrik.

If Isti’aanat (seeking help) was also forbidden from a Muslim, then why does the Hadith specify the Mushrik? Sayyiduna Omar Al-Farooq(Radi ALLAH Anho) had a Christian slave Watheeq, who was very trustworthy regarding worldly matters. Ameeril-Moh’mineen(Radi ALLAH Anho) once said to him:

اسلم استعن بك على أمانة المسلمين *

Become a Muslim so that I may seek your assistance with the Amana (entrusted monies) of the Muslim. He refused and Sayyiduna Omar(Radi ALLAH Anho) said, “We will not seek any help from a Kaafir”.

Hadith no. 12

Imam Bukhari(Radi ALLAH Anho) in Taaree’kh narrates from Sayyiduna Habeeb bin Yasaaf(Radi ALLAH Anho) that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) said:

أنا لا نستعين بالمشركين على المشركين * ورواه الأمام احمد أيضا

We do not seek assistance from the Mushrik in matters regarding the Mushrik.

Hadith no. 13

It is recorded in Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim and Sunan-e-Nisaa’ee that a few Arab tribes came for some assistance from the Prophet of Allah(Peace Be Upon Him), who assisted them.

عن انس رضى الله تعالى عنه انّ النبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم اتاه رعل و ذكوان و عصية و بنو لحيان فزعموا انهم قد اسلموا واستمدوه على قومهم فامدّهم النبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم *  الحديث

Sayyiduna Anas(Radi ALLAH Anho) narrates from Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) that the clans of Ri’al, Zakwaan, Asiyyah and Banu Lahyaan came to him. They professed of their Islam and sought assistance for their families from the Prophet of Allah(Peace Be Upon Him), and he assisted them.

Hadith no. 14

Sahih Muslim, Abu-Da’ood, Ibne Maaja and Tabraani in Muh’jam-e-Kabeer narrate from Sayyiduna Rabee’ah bin Kaab Aslami(Radi ALLAH Anho) that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) once said to him (Kaab Aslami): “Ask what you desire and I will give it to you”. I said, “I ask of you that I be in your company in Jannah”.TheBeloved Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him) replied, Is there anything else you desire?” I said, That is all I desire”. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) said, “Assist me by making excessive Sojood”.

قال كنت أبيت مع رسول الله صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم فأتيته بوضوئه و حاجته  ،

 فقال لي سل و لفظ الطبراني فقال يوما يا ربيعه! سلني فاعطيك ، رجعنا الى لفظ مسلم ، قال فقلت ، اسئالك مرافقتك في الجنة ، قال أوغير ذاك؟ قلت هو ذالك  قال فاعنّي على نفسك بكثرت السجود *

Sayyiduna Rabee’ah(Radi ALLAH Anho) says that “I always spent the nights with the Prophet of Allah(Peace Be Upon Him). One night, I presented water to him for Istinja and Wudu. He(Peace Be Upon Him) said to me, ‘Ask!’ and the words of Tabraani are, ‘O Rabee’ah! Ask me what you desire and I will grant you’. We revert back to the words of Sahih Muslim, ‘Then I (Rabee’ah) asked, ‘I seek your company in Jannah’.  The Prophet of Allah(Peace Be Upon Him) asked, ‘Is there any other request?’  I replied, ‘That is all I desire’ The Beloved(Peace Be Upon Him) then replied, ‘Then you assist me by making excessive Sojood’”.  

Alhamdulillah! Every word of this Sahih Hadith Shareef refutes the false Wahabi belief. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) said اعنّى, “assist me” and this is called Isti’aanat.

Another important fact is that the Beloved Prophet of Allah(Peace Be Upon Him) said سل  “ask what you desire”. This command has no restrictions or limitations. It is a general option to ask for anything. It is explicitly clear from this Sahih Hadith that Almighty ALLAH has blessed Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) with the authority to grant the desire of this world and the Akhirah.

Hadith nos. 15 to 28

In these following 14 Ahadith, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) states:

اطلبوا الخير عند حسان الوجوه *

Seek virtues from those with a beautiful face.

و في لفظ اطلبوا الخير والحوائج من حسان الوجوه *

Ask for virtues and desires from those with a beautiful face.

و في لفظ اطلبوا الحاجات عند حسان الوجوه *

Ask the handsome ones for your desires.

وفي لفظ اذا ابتغيتم المعروف فاطلبوه عند حسان الوجوه *

When you require virtue, request it from the handsome face.

و في لفظ اذا طلبتم الحاجات فاطلبوها عند حسان الوجوه *

When you look for desires look for them by the handsome faces.

وفي لفظ بزيادة فان قضى حاجتك قضاها بوجه طلق وان ردّك ردّك بوجه طلق *

That, a handsome person will smilingly fulfill or reject your desires.

I say that that there is no doubt in the comment of Imam Jalaludeen Suyuti(Radi ALLAH Anho) that the Hadith is Hasan Sahih because its narration has reached the stage of Tawatur (recurrence), and hence, it will be given preference over Ra’ee (views).

Hadith no. 29

Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) states:

اطلبوا الفضل عند رحماء من امّتي تعيشوا فى اكنافهم فانّ فيهم رحمتي *

Seek excellence from the tender-hearted people of my Ummah. Live close to them because you will find my mercy in them.

It is stated in another Hadith:

و في لفظ اطلبوا الحوائج الى ذوى الرّحمة من امّتي يرزقوا و تنجحوا *

Seek your desires from the tender-hearted persons of my Ummah, you will receive sustenance and fulfillment of desires.

Another Hadith states:

و في لفظ قال صلى الله تعالى عليه وسلّم يقول الله عزّ و جلّ اطلبوا الفضل من الرحماء من عبادي تعيشوا في اكنافهم فأنّي جعلت فيهم رحمتي *

The Glorious ALLAH States, “Ask for excellence from My kind-hearted servants. Enjoy life in their company because  I have left My mercy with them”.

The sources and chain of narrators of the above Hadith Shareef are as follows:

رواه بلفظ الاول ابن حبّان و الخرائطي فى مكارم الاخلاق و القضائى فى مسند الشهاب و الحاكم فى التاريخ و ابو الحسن  الموصلى و بالثانى العقيلى و الطبرانى فى الاوسط وبالثالث العقيلى كلهم عن ابى سعيد الخدرى رضى الله تعالى عنه *

With the second word, it is recorded by Aqeeli(Radi ALLAH Anho) and Tabraani(Radi ALLAH Anho)  in Awsat and with the third word Aqeeli(Radi ALLAH Anho) reports. All of them narrate from Sayyiduna Abu-Saeed Al-Khudri(Radi ALLAH Anho).

Hadith no. 30

Sayyidul-Alameen Mustafa(Peace Be Upon Him) states:

اطلبوا المعروف من رحماء امّتي تعيشوا فى اكنلفهم *

Ask my tender-hearted followers for virtues and charity.

Live in peace in their company.

اخرجه الحاكم فى المستدرك عن على المرتضى  كرم الله وجهه الاسنى *

This Hadith Shareef is recorded by Haakim(Radi ALLAH Anho) in Mustadrak and narrated from Sayyiduna Ali Al-Murtudah(Radi ALLAH Anho)

Where are the eyes of justice? Look at the clarity of these 17 Ahadith with Imaan. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) distinctly orders us to seek assistance (استعانت), virtues and excellence from the kind-hearted servants of his Ummah. They will happily fulfill your desires. Request from them sustenance and they will give it to you. They will grant you your desires. There is peace and tranquility in their company. There is joy to live with them. O ALLAH! What is the meaning of Isti’aanat and what Isti’aanat is greater than this? Who are more soft-hearted than the Awliya in this Ummah that Isti’aanat from them will be recommended so that to seek assistance from them will be ordered?

Alhamdullilah! The sun of truth has unveiled itself with great brightness towards which the kind Rasool(Peace Be Upon Him) of the Affectionate Lord calls the Ummah.

If you are Haraam, so be it!

All Praise is due to ALLAH! By His Mercy, as promised, I have presented 30 Ahadith. I would like to present another three to make it an odd number (33) because the Hadith Shareef says that ALLAH loves an odd number.

Hadith no. 31

Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) states:

اذا اضلّ احدكم شيئاً او اراد عوناً و هو بارضٍ ليس بها انيسٌ فليقل يا عباد الله! اعينوني ، يا عباد الله! اعينوني ، يا عباد الله! اعينوني ، فانّ لله عباداً لايراهم *

When anyone of you loses something and require help in a remote place where there is no help, then call out: “O servants of Allah! Assist me! O servants of Allah! Assist me! O servants of Allah! Assist me!” because there are some servants of ALLAH that you cannot see.

OPINION OF THE ULAMA:

There are hundreds of comment and proofs of the Ahle-Sunnat A’imma and Ulama found in numerous Kitaabs on this subject. These were presented to the Wahabies on numerous occasions. They have seen it, read it, heard it and understood it but to this day, failed to accept or answer to it. Insha-Allah! They will not be able to answer these till Qiyamah.

Here, I will present a list of the names of great Imams and Ulama along with their undisputed and authentic Kitaabs in which they have proven the legality of Isti’aanat.

In reality, there is an ocean of information on the legality of Isti’aanat. What can be said about the dirty eyes that cannot see the vast ocean? The Wahabi should soberly look at Sheikh-e-Muhaqqiq Moulana Abdul-Haqq Muhaddith Dehlawi’s (Radi ALLAH Anho) translation of Mish’kaat Shareef. He gives the reference of the eminent Awliya-Allah and comments:

“The Masha’ikh-e-Ahle-Kashf have vastly commented on the seeking of Istimdaad and Isti’aanat from the souls of the Awliya-e-Kaamileen”. These are all outside the category of Hasr.

The reality of the matter is that it is exactly the same. If one does not agree with me, then try to convince them by yourself. Let alone all these references, I will test their Imaan with only one quotation of the beloved son of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace Be Upon Him), who is the Fountain of Excellence, Axis of the Awliya-Allah, Pivot of the Abdaal, Master of the Afraad, Treasury of ALLAH’S Secrets, Ocean of Wisdom, Imam of Shari’ah and the Brilliant Sun of Haqiqah, Qubtul-Aqtaab, Sayyiduna Ghousal-A’zam Sayyid Sheikh Abu-Muhammad Abdul-Qaadir Hasani Husaini Jilaani Baghdadi(Radi ALLAH Anho). This quotation is not recorded in any ordinary Kitaab by any unknown author. Great and illustrious Imams and Awliya of this Ummah record this in their famous Kitaabs. They are:

1. Imam-e-Ajal Arife-Billah Muhaddith Faqhi Sayyiduna Imam Abul-Hasan Noorudeen Ali bin Jareer Lakh’mi Shat’
nooni(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his Bahjatul-Asraar Shareef.
2. Imam-e-Akram Sheikhul-Foqaha Fardul-Orafa Sayyiduna Imam Abdullah bin As’ad Yafa’ee Shafa’ee Makki(Radi
ALLAH Anho) in his Khulasatul-Mafakhir.
3. Muhaddith-e-Kabeer Sheikhul-Haram Moulana Mullah Ali Qaari Hanafi Al-Hirwi Makki(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his
Nuzhatul-Khaatirul-Faatir.
4. Baqiyatus-Salf Jaleelush-Sharf Moulana Abul-Ma’aali Qaaderi(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his Tohfa-e-Qaaderiyyah.
5. Sheikhush-Shoyookh Muhaqqiq Faqi Arif-e-Nabeel Imam Abdul-Haqq Muhaddith Dehlawi(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his Akhbaar-al-Akhyaar and Zubdatul-Aa’thaar.

The great Ghous, Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho), states:

من استغاث بي في كربة كشفت عنه ، و من ناداني باسمي في شدة فرّجت عنه ، من توسّل بي إلى الله في حاجة قضيت حاجته ، من صلّى ركعتين يقرء في كلّ ركعة بعد الفاتحة سورة الإخلاص احدى عشرة مرّة ثمّ يصلّى و يسلّم على النبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم بعد السلام من التشهّداحدى عشر ة مرّة و يذكره ثمّ يخطوا الى جهة  العراق إحدى عشرة خطوة و يذكر اسمي و يذكر حاجته فانّها تقضى بإذن الله تعالى

“Anyone who calls out to me in times of difficulties, it will be removed. If anyone takes my name at times of hardship and calls out, the hardship will be eased. And if anyone presents my Waseela in the Court of ALLAH and makes Du’a, his desires will be fulfilled. If anyone performs two Rakaats of Salaah and recites Sura Ikhlaas eleven times after Sura Fateha in both Rakaats, then terminates the Salaah with Salaam and remembers Sayyiduna Rasoolullah by reading eleven times Salawaat (Durood Shareef) on him, thereafter, takes eleven steps towards the direction of Baghdad Shareef and takes my name and mentions your request, by the Command of the Merciful Allah, your desire will be fulfilled.” (Buh’jatul Asraar, Page 295)

Imam Ahmed Raza (Radi ALLAH Anho) comments:

يقول العبد صدقت ياسيّدي يامولائي رضى الله تعالى عنك و عن كلّ من كان لك و منك ، الحمد لله الّذى جعلك وارث ابيك المرسل رحمة و مولى النعمة ، وصلى الله تعالى على ابيك و عليك وعلى كلّ من انتمى اليك و بارك و سلّم وشرف و كرم، آمين آمين يا ارحم الراحمين ، والحمدلله رب العلمين

“O my Master! You have spoken the truth and may ALLAH be pleased with you and all those who are with and from you. All Praises are for ALLAH who has made you the Waarith (Heir) to your Father (the Prophet r), the mercy of the universe. May ALLAH shower His Choicest Mercies, excellence and honour on your Father (the Nabi), on you and all those who are linked with you. Aameen! Aameen!”

Hadrat Sheikh Abu-Ma’aali(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his narration’s records the words of Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) Kashaf’tu, Farraj’tu and Qaday’tu in the Sigha (Tense) of Mutakal’lim (first person). He translates them as follows:

Allama Mullah Ali Qaari Makki (Radi ALLAH Anho), after recording this Riwayah, comments:

و قد جرّب ذالك مرارا فصحّ رضى الله تعالى عنه 

“Verily, this was tested several times and proven as the Grand Sheikh said, “May ALLAH’S Pleasure be with the Sheikh”.

Important Point:

Allama Shah Abdul-Azeez Muhaddith Dehlawi(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his Fathul-Azeez reports the correct incident as follows:

Sheikh Sufyaan Thouri(Radi ALLAH Anho) led the evening Salaah. He fell unconscious to the ground when he reached the Ayah, ايّاك نعبد و ايّاك نستعين . When he regained consciousness, the people asked what had happened to him. He replied, “When I reached  ايّاك نستعين (Thee do we ask for help) I feared that I may not be told, ‘O liar! Why do you then take medicine from the Doctor, sustenance from the rich and assistance from the king?’ Therefore, some Ulama state that man should be ashamed to ALLAH that he stands in the presence of the Mighty Lord U five time a day and lie to Him. But it is Haraam to seek the assistance of anyone other than ALLAH with a belief that that person is self-sufficient and is not a manifestation and medium of ALLAH’S Help. When seeking help from anyone, one must always bare in mind that ultimately, help comes from ALLAH Who gives it through certain of His creations. This is the Hikmah of ALLAH and is done in this way for reasons best known to Him. Though in appearance, help is sort from anyone but, in reality, it is ALLAH who Gives the Help. This is not contrary to Irfaan (Wisdom) and permitted by the Shari’ah. The Noble Ambiya and Awliya had also sort such Isti’aanat. In reality, such Isti’aanat is not sought from Ghair (other than ALLAH) but from ALLAH.

Subhan-Allah! I am referring to tests that were often carried out in the past. One of the Wahabi candidates was
Nawaab Dehlawi who refutes the legitimate Isti’aanat in his book Zafre-Jaleel. What is their comment on this great Sahih and agreed Hadith Shareef quoted in three of the Siha-Sitta Kitaabs of Hadith?

يا محمد! اني توجّهت بك الى ربي في حاجتي هذه لتقضى لى 

This Sahih Hadith Shareef is recorded in Jameh-Tirmidi, Sunan-e-Nisa’ee and Ibne-Maaja. Great Muhadditheen like Imam Tirmidi(Radi ALLAH Anho), Imam Tabraani(Radi ALLAH Anho), Imam Bay’haqi(Radi ALLAH Anho), Imam Abu-Abdullah Haakim(Radi ALLAH Anho) and Imam Abdul-Azeem Munzari(Radi ALLAH Anho) all classify this Hadith Shareef as Sahih. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) personally taught this Hadith Shareef to the Sahaba(Peace Be Upon Him) for the purpose of Qada-e-Hajaat (fulfillment of desires). The Sahaba practiced this teaching in the holy era of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) and the Taba’ee in the time of Ameeril-Moh’mineen Sayyiduna Uthmaan Al-Ghani(Radi ALLAH Anho). What was in this teaching? It was nothing but, “O Prophet of Allah(Peace Be Upon Him)! I turn to Allah with your Waseela so that He grants me my desires.”

ALLAH forbid! There are no traces of personal powers (قدرت بالذات) in this that upset Nawaab Sahib. He shamelessly discards the pristine teachings of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace Be Upon Him) and turns a blind eye at the obedience and actions of the noble Sahaba and Taba’ee. He also undermines the authority of the great Muhadditheen. He arrogantly leaves the boundaries of Shari’ah and comments in the commentary of Zafre-Jaleel that this Hadith Shareef is not Sahih and not considered as worthy of proof.

Imam Faqhi Muhaddith Khatimul-Mujtahideen Allama Taqi-ud-deen Abul-Hasan Ali bin Abdul-Kaafi Subki(Radi ALLAH Anho), in his famous Kitaab, Shifa-us-Siqaam, has proven the legality of Isti’aanat from numerous Sahih-Ahadith and thus comments:

ليس المراد نسبة النبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلم الى الخلق و الاستقلال بالافعال هذا لايقصده مسلم فصرف الكلام اليه و منعه من باب التلبيس فى الدين و التشويش على عوام الموحدين 

“Seeking assistance from Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) does not mean that the Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him) is ALLAH who possesses exclusive and absolute powers. This incorrect interpretation to forbid Isti’aanat is certainly a deception in Deen. This will cause gross confusion amongst the general Muslim public.”

The great Faqhi and Muhaddith Allama Muhaqqiq Arif-e-Billah Imam Ibne-Hajr Makki(Radi ALLAH Anho), in his famous works, Johar-e-Munazzam, proves the legality of Isti’aanat from the Hadith Shareef and comments:

فالتوجّه والاستغاثة به صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم و بغيره ليس لهما معنى فى قلوب المسلمين غير ذالك ولايقصد بها احد منهم سواه فمن لم ينشرح صدره لذالك فليبك على نفسه نسأل الله العافية والمستغاث به فى الحقيقة هو الله والنبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم واسطة بينه و بين المستغيث ، فهو سبحانه تعالى مستغاث به والغوث منه خلقا وايجادا والنبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم مستغاث والغوث منه سببا و كسبا*   

N.B. There are explanatory words included in the following translation to make it easy for the general public to understand.

“Seeking help from Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) or from Prophets and Awliya refers to one intention in the hearts of the Muslim. No Muslim has any other intention whatsoever besides this. If the (rejecter’s) hearts fail to accept this, then they should cry in regret at their pathetic state. We seek good fate from the Merciful Lord. In reality, we seek all our Isti’aanat from Almighty ALLAH and regard the Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him) as a medium (Waseela) between the seeker (creation) and Giver (ALLAH. Since ALLAH is the Creator and the Independent Real Granter (Haqeeqi-wa-Zaati) of everything, therefore, in reality, assistance is directed to Him and He makes available His Divine Assistance as the Creator of the universe. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) is the Khalifa-e-A’zam (most senior representative) of Almighty ALLAH and certainly the manifestation of Divine powers. Almighty ALLAH has granted unique authority and power to His beloved Prophet(Peace Be Upon Him). So the Nabi’s (Peace Be Upon Him) powers are not personal but a gift (Ataa’ee) of ALLAH. Hence, when assistance is sort from the Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him), he exercises the powers granted to him by ALLAH and fulfills the requests and comforts the seeker with his Divinely blessed mercies. The Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) is the appointed distributor of ALLAH’S Mercies and a medium (Waseela) to obtain ALLAH’S Help.”

There is no doubt in this fact. I have fully explained this reality above. Surprisingly, they cannot remember the
words of their senior elders, Shah Waliullah Dehlvi, who clearly accept Sultaanul-Awlia Ghuosal-Azam Sayyiduna
Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) as a helper who grants succor in times of need.

Shah Wali’ullah Muhaddith Dehlawi(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his Ash’hatul-Lam’aat states:

Today, if anyone develops a relation with the special Soul (Ruh-e-Khaas) and receives spiritual benefits from it, then it is not surprising that this excellence is achieved due to the Nisbah (relation) with Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace Be Upon Him) or Ameeril-Moh’mineen Sayyiduna Ali(Radi ALLAH Anho) or Ghouse-A’zam Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani.

Shah Abdul Azeez Muhaddith Dehlawi(Radi ALLAH Anho) while discussing the Beloved Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him)
comments in his Tafseer-e-Azeezi:

If any human achieves high spiritual status in this world, it is due to a small portion of excellence of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace Be Upon Him) blessed to the Awliya of this Ummah. By the Barakah of this excellence, these Awliya become a spiritual retreat for humanity and made beloved in their hearts. Such was the state of Sayyiduna Ghousal-A’zam Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) and Sultaanul Masha’ikh Hadrat Nizaamudeen Awliya (Radi ALLAH Anho) – may ALLAH sanctify their souls.

Khaja Mirza Mazhar Jaane-Jaana(Radi ALLAH Anho) states in his Maktobaat:

Commenting on the command of Sayyiduna Ghousal-Azam Sheikh Abdul Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) “My foot is on the necks of all Awliya”, he writes in the same Malfozaat, “The concentration (Tawajjah) of Ghousus-Thaqalain seems to be found in a very great degree in the Masha’ikh of the Silsila. I have not met anyone of the Silsila that is not dependent on the attention of the great Ghous”.

Qaadi Thana’ullah Panipati(Radi ALLAH Anho) writes in his Saiful-Mas’lool:

Initially the spiritual grace and bounty of the station of Wilayat first descended on one person. Thereafter, through this special person it was distributed to the Awliya of every era. No Wali received these favours from a source other than this elite servant of ALLAH. Before the birth of Ghouse-A’zam Sayyid Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho), this station was held by Imam Hasan Askari(Radi ALLAH Anho) and controlled by his sanctified soul. When the great Ghous(Radi ALLAH Anho) was born, it was handed over to him. This station will be under the supreme command of the sanctified soul of Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) until the appearance of the promised savior, Sayyiduna Imam Muhammad Al-Mehdi(Radi ALLAH Anho). Therefore, the great Ghous declared (Radi ALLAH Anho), “This foot of mine is on the necks of all Awliya-Allah”. Also, the other saying of Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) “Sayyiduna Nabi Moosa bin Imraan was my brother and friend” refers to the excellence of this very high station of Wilayat-e-Kubra.

Let alone all these proofs and quotations, let us examine the belief of the father of Wahabism in the Indo-Pak sub-continent. He is none other than Mia Isma’eel Dehlawi, who comments about his Peer and Murshid in his famous Wahabi manual, Siraatul-Mustaqeem:

The sacred souls of Hadrat Ghousus-Thaqalain and Hadrat Khaja Baha’udeen Naqshaband were concentrating (Tawajjah) on my Murshid. He further states, A person came to my Murshid and requested to become a Mureed in the Qaadiriyyah order. This person had indeed great love and inclination towards Sayyiduna Ghousal-A’zam. My Murshid then initiated him as a Qaadiriyyah disciple. He (Isma’eel Dehlawi) further states, The illustrious Awliya like Sayyiduna Ghous-e-Paak and Hadrat Khaja-e-Buzrugh (Naqshaband). 

The very same Imamul-Wahabiyyah, in his lecture on slaughtering animal states in his Zubdatun-Nasa’eh:

There is no harm if a person raises a goat at home, so that it may grow up healthy and slaughters it to cook food, and offer the Fateha as Thawaab to Ghousal-A’zam(Radi ALLAH Anho) and feed the people.

I question your Imaan! Does not Ghousal-A’zam mean “The biggest helper” or does it mean something else? Let your Imaam translate the title Ghousus-Thaqalain. Does it not mean “The helper of human and Jinns” or is it some thing else? According to your (Wahabi) beliefs, is this not blatant Shirk? Why do you not then brand the elders of your household as Mushriks and Kaafirs? Your Imaam and elder of your family are subscribing to clear Shirk beliefs. If you were sincere then you would have labeled them as Mushriks, otherwise your Shari’ah is homemade because its Fatwa applies only to outsiders and not the household.

What a tragedy! The mentality of the followers of the Wahabi Imaam (Isma’eel Dehlawi) has knocked the last nail on his coffin. The Imaam had taught the students the rules and laws of Shirk, therefore the sincere student,
Nawaab Bhopali Bhadur, whispered softly, “To say Ghous-e-A’zam or Ya Ghousas-Thaqalain is not free from Shirk”. It is the corrupt Wahabi Imaam that has led the followers to the deep ocean. Then they pushed him overboard and laughed while the poor Imaam drowned.

إني برئ منك انى أخاف الله رب العالمين * “Verily, we are far away from them (Wahabies) and we certainly fear the Lord of the Universe”. 

This is their funeral and they are welcome to cry over it. Is there anyone to listen to the Truth?

“There are two disasters on the life of Majno. One is the company of Layla, and the other is her absence.”

ضعف الطالب و المطلوب *  لبئس المولى و لبئس العشير ه و حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل * ولاحول ولاقوة الا بالله العزيز الحكيم * نعم المولى و نعم النصير * والحمد لله رب العالمين  و قيل بعدا للقوم الظالمين * و صلى الله تعالى على سيد المرسلين غوث الدنيا و غياث الدين سيدنا محمد و آله و صحبه أجمعين آمين

By the Divine Grace of Almighty Allah, this brief but informative answer will suffice to remove doubts from the hearts and minds of the Muslims created by the notorious Wahabi.

Hadrat Sheikh Abu-Ma’aali(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his narration’s records the words of Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) Kashaf’tu, Farraj’tu and Qaday’tu in the Sigha (Tense) of Mutakal’lim (first person). He translates them as follows:

Allama Mullah Ali Qaari Makki (Radi ALLAH Anho), after recording this Riwayah, comments:

و قد جرّب ذالك مرارا فصحّ رضى الله تعالى عنه 

“Verily, this was tested several times and proven as the Grand Sheikh said, “May ALLAH’S Pleasure be with the Sheikh”.

Important Point:

Allama Shah Abdul-Azeez Muhaddith Dehlawi(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his Fathul-Azeez reports the correct incident as follows:

Sheikh Sufyaan Thouri(Radi ALLAH Anho) led the evening Salaah. He fell unconscious to the ground when he
reached the Ayah, ايّاك نعبد و ايّاك نستعين . When he regained consciousness, the people asked what had happened to him. He replied, “When I reached  ايّاك نستعين (Thee do we ask for help) I feared that I may not be told, ‘O liar! Why do you then take medicine from the Doctor, sustenance from the rich and assistance from the king?’ Therefore, some Ulama state that man should be ashamed to ALLAH that he stands in the presence of the Mighty Lord U five time a day and lie to Him. But it is Haraam to seek the assistance of anyone other than ALLAH with a belief that that person is self-sufficient and is not a manifestation and medium of ALLAH’S Help. When seeking help from anyone, one must always bare in mind that ultimately, help comes from ALLAH Who gives it through certain of His creations. This is the Hikmah of ALLAH and is done in this way for reasons best known to Him. Though in appearance, help is sort from anyone but, in reality, it is ALLAH who Gives the Help. This is not contrary to Irfaan (Wisdom) and permitted by the Shari’ah. The Noble Ambiya and Awliya had also sort such Isti’aanat. In reality, such Isti’aanat is not sought from Ghair (other than ALLAH) but from ALLAH.

Subhan-Allah! I am referring to tests that were often carried out in the past. One of the Wahabi candidates was
Nawaab Dehlawi who refutes the legitimate Isti’aanat in his book Zafre-Jaleel. What is their comment on this great Sahih and agreed Hadith Shareef quoted in three of the Siha-Sitta Kitaabs of Hadith?

يا محمد! اني توجّهت بك الى ربي في حاجتي هذه لتقضى لى 

This Sahih Hadith Shareef is recorded in Jameh-Tirmidi, Sunan-e-Nisa’ee and Ibne-Maaja. Great Muhadditheen like Imam Tirmidi(Radi ALLAH Anho), Imam Tabraani(Radi ALLAH Anho), Imam Bay’haqi(Radi ALLAH Anho), Imam Abu-Abdullah Haakim(Radi ALLAH Anho) and Imam Abdul-Azeem Munzari(Radi ALLAH Anho) all classify this Hadith Shareef as Sahih. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) personally taught this Hadith Shareef to the Sahaba(Peace Be Upon Him) for the purpose of Qada-e-Hajaat (fulfillment of desires). The Sahaba practiced this teaching in the holy era of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) and the Taba’ee in the time of Ameeril-Moh’mineen Sayyiduna Uthmaan Al-Ghani(Radi ALLAH Anho). What was in this teaching? It was nothing but, “O Prophet of Allah(Peace Be Upon Him)! I turn to Allah with your Waseela so that He grants me my desires.”

ALLAH forbid! There are no traces of personal powers (قدرت بالذات) in this that upset Nawaab Sahib. He shamelessly discards the pristine teachings of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace Be Upon Him) and turns a blind eye at the obedience and actions of the noble Sahaba and Taba’ee. He also undermines the authority of the great
Muhadditheen. He arrogantly leaves the boundaries of Shari’ah and comments in the commentary of Zafre-Jaleel
that this Hadith Shareef is not Sahih and not considered as worthy of proof.

Imam Faqhi Muhaddith Khatimul-Mujtahideen Allama Taqi-ud-deen Abul-Hasan Ali bin Abdul-Kaafi Subki(Radi ALLAH Anho), in his famous Kitaab, Shifa-us-Siqaam, has proven the legality of Isti’aanat from numerous Sahih-Ahadith and thus comments:

ليس المراد نسبة النبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلم الى الخلق و الاستقلال بالافعال هذا لايقصده مسلم فصرف الكلام اليه و منعه من باب التلبيس فى الدين و التشويش على عوام الموحدين 

“Seeking assistance from Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) does not mean that the Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him) is ALLAH who possesses exclusive and absolute powers. This incorrect interpretation to forbid Isti’aanat is certainly a deception in Deen. This will cause gross confusion amongst the general Muslim public.”

The great Faqhi and Muhaddith Allama Muhaqqiq Arif-e-Billah Imam Ibne-Hajr Makki(Radi ALLAH Anho), in his famous works, Johar-e-Munazzam, proves the legality of Isti’aanat from the Hadith Shareef and comments:

فالتوجّه والاستغاثة به صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم و بغيره ليس لهما معنى فى قلوب المسلمين غير ذالك ولايقصد بها احد منهم سواه فمن لم ينشرح صدره لذالك فليبك
على نفسه نسأل الله العافية والمستغاث به فى الحقيقة هو الله والنبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم واسطة بينه و بين المستغيث ، فهو سبحانه تعالى مستغاث به والغوث
منه خلقا وايجادا والنبي صلى الله تعالى عليه و سلّم مستغاث والغوث منه سببا و كسبا*

N.B. There are explanatory words included in the following translation to make it easy for the general public to understand.

“Seeking help from Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) or from Prophets and Awliya refers to one intention in the hearts of the Muslim. No Muslim has any other intention whatsoever besides this. If the (rejecter’s) hearts fail to accept this, then they should cry in regret at their pathetic state. We seek good fate from the Merciful Lord. In reality, we seek all our Isti’aanat from Almighty ALLAH and regard the Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him) as a medium (Waseela) between the seeker (creation) and Giver (ALLAH. Since ALLAH is the Creator and the Independent Real Granter (Haqeeqi-wa-Zaati) of everything, therefore, in reality, assistance is directed to Him and He makes available His Divine Assistance as the Creator of the universe. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(Peace Be Upon Him) is the Khalifa-e-A’zam (most senior representative) of Almighty ALLAH and certainly the manifestation of Divine powers. Almighty ALLAH has granted unique authority and power to His beloved Prophet(Peace Be Upon Him). So the Nabi’s (Peace Be Upon Him) powers are not personal but a gift (Ataa’ee) of ALLAH. Hence, when assistance is sort from the Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him), he exercises the powers granted to him by ALLAH and fulfills the requests and comforts the seeker with his Divinely blessed mercies. The Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) is the appointed distributor of ALLAH’S Mercies and a medium (Waseela) to obtain ALLAH’S Help.”

There is no doubt in this fact. I have fully explained this reality above. Surprisingly, they cannot remember the
words of their senior elders, Shah Waliullah Dehlvi, who clearly accept Sultaanul-Awlia Ghuosal-Azam Sayyiduna
Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) as a helper who grants succor in times of need.

Shah Wali’ullah Muhaddith Dehlawi(Radi ALLAH Anho) in his Ash’hatul-Lam’aat states:

Today, if anyone develops a relation with the special Soul (Ruh-e-Khaas) and receives spiritual benefits from it, then it is not surprising that this excellence is achieved due to the Nisbah (relation) with Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace Be Upon Him) or Ameeril-Moh’mineen Sayyiduna Ali(Radi ALLAH Anho) or Ghouse-A’zam Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani.

Shah Abdul Azeez Muhaddith Dehlawi(Radi ALLAH Anho) while discussing the Beloved Nabi(Peace Be Upon Him)
comments in his Tafseer-e-Azeezi:

If any human achieves high spiritual status in this world, it is due to a small portion of excellence of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Peace Be Upon Him) blessed to the Awliya of this Ummah. By the Barakah of this excellence, these Awliya become a spiritual retreat for humanity and made beloved in their hearts. Such was the state of Sayyiduna Ghousal-A’zam Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) and Sultaanul Masha’ikh Hadrat Nizaamudeen Awliya (Radi ALLAH Anho) – may ALLAH sanctify their souls.

Khaja Mirza Mazhar Jaane-Jaana(Radi ALLAH Anho) states in his Maktobaat:

Commenting on the command of Sayyiduna Ghousal-Azam Sheikh Abdul Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) “My foot is on the necks of all Awliya”, he writes in the same Malfozaat, “The concentration (Tawajjah) of Ghousus-Thaqalain seems to be found in a very great degree in the Masha’ikh of the Silsila. I have not met anyone of the Silsila that is not dependent on the attention of the great Ghous”.

Qaadi Thana’ullah Panipati(Radi ALLAH Anho) writes in his Saiful-Mas’lool:

Initially the spiritual grace and bounty of the station of Wilayat first descended on one person. Thereafter, through this special person it was distributed to the Awliya of every era. No Wali received these favours from a source other than this elite servant of ALLAH. Before the birth of Ghouse-A’zam Sayyid Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho), this station was held by Imam Hasan Askari(Radi ALLAH Anho) and controlled by his sanctified soul. When the great Ghous(Radi ALLAH Anho) was born, it was handed over to him. This station will be under the supreme command of the sanctified soul of Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) until the appearance of the promised savior, Sayyiduna Imam Muhammad Al-Mehdi(Radi ALLAH Anho). Therefore, the great Ghous declared (Radi ALLAH Anho), “This foot of mine is on the necks of all Awliya-Allah”. Also, the other saying of Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul-Qaadir Jilaani(Radi ALLAH Anho) “Sayyiduna Nabi Moosa bin Imraan was my brother and friend” refers to the excellence of this very high station of Wilayat-e-Kubra.

Let alone all these proofs and quotations, let us examine the belief of the father of Wahabism in the Indo-Pak sub-continent. He is none other than Mia Isma’eel Dehlawi, who comments about his Peer and Murshid in his famous Wahabi manual, Siraatul-Mustaqeem:

The sacred souls of Hadrat Ghousus-Thaqalain and Hadrat Khaja Baha’udeen Naqshaband were concentrating (Tawajjah) on my Murshid. He further states, A person came to my Murshid and requested to become a Mureed in the Qaadiriyyah order. This person had indeed great love and inclination towards Sayyiduna Ghousal-A’zam. My Murshid then initiated him as a Qaadiriyyah disciple. He (Isma’eel Dehlawi) further states, The illustrious Awliya like Sayyiduna Ghous-e-Paak and Hadrat Khaja-e-Buzrugh (Naqshaband). 

The very same Imamul-Wahabiyyah, in his lecture on slaughtering animal states in his Zubdatun-Nasa’eh:

There is no harm if a person raises a goat at home, so that it may grow up healthy and slaughters it to cook food, and offer the Fateha as Thawaab to Ghousal-A’zam(Radi ALLAH Anho) and feed the people.

I question your Imaan! Does not Ghousal-A’zam mean “The biggest helper” or does it mean something else? Let your Imaam translate the title Ghousus-Thaqalain. Does it not mean “The helper of human and Jinns” or is it some thing else? According to your (Wahabi) beliefs, is this not blatant Shirk? Why do you not then brand the elders of your household as Mushriks and Kaafirs? Your Imaam and elder of your family are subscribing to clear Shirk beliefs. If you were sincere then you would have labeled them as Mushriks, otherwise your Shari’ah is homemade because its Fatwa applies only to outsiders and not the household.

What a tragedy! The mentality of the followers of the Wahabi Imaam (Isma’eel Dehlawi) has knocked the last nail on his coffin. The Imaam had taught the students the rules and laws of Shirk, therefore the sincere student,
Nawaab Bhopali Bhadur, whispered softly, “To say Ghous-e-A’zam or Ya Ghousas-Thaqalain is not free from Shirk”. It is the corrupt Wahabi Imaam that has led the followers to the deep ocean. Then they pushed him overboard and laughed while the poor Imaam drowned.

إني برئ منك انى أخاف الله رب العالمين * “Verily, we are far away from them (Wahabies) and we certainly fear the Lord of the Universe”. 

This is their funeral and they are welcome to cry over it. Is there anyone to listen to the Truth?

“There are two disasters on the life of Majno. One is the company of Layla, and the other is her absence.”

ضعف الطالب و المطلوب *  لبئس المولى و لبئس العشير ه و حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل * ولاحول ولاقوة الا بالله العزيز الحكيم * نعم المولى و نعم النصير * والحمد لله
رب العالمين  و قيل بعدا للقوم الظالمين * و صلى الله تعالى على سيد المرسلين غوث الدنيا و غياث الدين سيدنا محمد و آله و صحبه أجمعين آمين

By the Divine Grace of Almighty Allah, this brief but informative answer will suffice to remove doubts from the hearts and minds of the Muslims created by the notorious Wahabi.

  1. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely helpful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for such info a lot. I was looking for this certain information for a very long time. Thank you and good luck.

      1. https://quran.com/4:61

        “And when they impose on their lives (sin), they must come to your (the Nabi’s) presence, then seek repentance from ALLAH and the Rasool(Peace Be Upon Him) also asks for their forgiveness. Then, they will indeed find ALLAH Most Forgiving and Compassionate.” (An-Nisa:61)
