Islams Reformers

The bigotry of the religion reformers or bigots of science who surfaced lately to blame all previous scholars, basic fundamental beliefs or practices

India, wrote in his work

India, wrote in his work Hujjatu ’Illâhi ’l-bâligha (vol. I, p. 35), ‘When a human being passes away, no relation is left between his soul and the world of matter. The souls return to their origin, become like angels, and, like them, give inspirations and help to men. They help in the dissemination and strengthening of Allâhu ta’âlâ’s religion. They rush to help those who work for this path. It has been witnessed that they come to help in groups.’ This passage tells that blessed souls do work as angels do. Are these words not sufficient for the correction of those who do not believe that Rasûlullah (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam) becomes present and hears? The ’ulamâ’ of Islam have unanimously reported that he is the cause of all beings and the unique means of attaining closeness to Allâhu ta’âlâ. “In his work ar-Rawd an-nadîr, ’Allâma ’Abd ar-Ra’ûf al- Manâwî wrote: ‘After pure souls depart from this life and are promoted to their places, nothing is a curtain before them. They see, or learn from angels, everything. This is so mysterious that only few people are informed with it. While blessed souls are such, one should ponder and realize very well how the most superior of them is should!’ “Hadrat Ahmad Zainî Dahlân says on page 58 of Taqrîb alusûl: ‘Most of th ’ârifs said that, after a Walî passes away, his soul’s connection to his murîds continues. With the soul’s baraka, nûrs and faids come about. This is explained detailedly by Hadrat Qutb al-irshâd ’Abdullah al-Haddâd, who said in summary: “After a Walî passes away, he keeps his concern with his immediate acquaintances. This concern is more than that when he was alive. For, he was busy in this world also with his duties of being Allâh’u ta’âlâ’s slave; sometimes these duties busy him more. It is usually in this manner especially in these times. When the elect die, their forms and bodies vanish, but their haqîqa (reality) continues to exist. They are alive in their graves. Because the Walî is alive in his grave, his knowledge and intellectual and spiritual powers do not change at all. In fact, they all increase further after death.” ’ While the case is as such with all Awliyâ’, it should be estimated how it is with prophets, especially with the most superior of them. This apparent reality could be denied only by those who have been corrupted by non-madhhabite poison and those who have been caught in the trap of mulhids and dissented from Islam. May Allâhu ta’âlâ protect all Muslims against this – 252 –

grave disaster! Âmin.” [1] 59 - Ahmad Ridâ Khan Barilawî, a great scholar of India, in his fatwâ book Fatâwâ ’l-Haramain, answers twenty-eight questions. All of these fatwâs are in conformity with the teachings of the Ahl as-Sunna ’ulamâ’. Ten of these fatwâs are given below for their auspiciousness: Question 1: “The British spies in India, who call themselves ‘Nayâshira’, believe that Jabrâ’il (’alaihi ’s-salâm), angels, genies, the Satan, heavens, the mu’jiza of Mi’râj, Hell and Paradise exist and that bodies will get alive again as Muslims believe. Yet they give false meanings to the âyats that deal with these subjects, as some of the people called Bâtiniyya do. They say that these things are not made of matter but they are conceptual and imaginative. They say that nothing can exist beyond customs and physical laws. Thus they deny that Allâhu ta’âlâ can create many things beyond the laws of nature. They do not believe in mu’jizât, and they explain them away according to what they see and learn in nature. They say that it is harâm and cruelty to use as slaves the captives taken from among non-Muslims in the jihâd performed for spreading Allah’s religion and that it is something done by the savage. Though it was defined in all heavenly religions, they claim that Allah has not commanded it. They do not believe any of the tafsîr and hadîth books. They claim that all their contents have been invented by ’ulamâ. They say, ‘The Qur’ân remains the sole truth in our hands. We interpret the Qur’ân according to our new information. We do not believe what the early Muslims understood from it or what has reached us from them.’ Can those who say so be called ‘Muslims’ or ‘Ahl al-Qibla’ even if they say that they are Muslim, utter kalimat ash-shahâda and perform salât towards the qibla? Moreover, these spies claim that they themselves are the real Muslims and that what they tell is the pure Islamic religion. Shall we call them ‘Muslim’ or ‘non-Muslim’? Shall we consider their words as wrong and falsified?” Answer 1: They are not sincere at all. I swear by Allah that they have no connection with Islam. They are enemies of Islam fed by the British. They are the worst of non-Muslims and [1] Al-Mu’allim, monthly periodical; see above, p. 233. The Arabic original of the passage is published together with the book al-Ustâd Mawdûdî in Istanbul. – 253 –
