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

Permitting such praises

Permitting such praises or disseminating or advertising them shows consent to them. Consent to evils is also evil. [1] Question 5: “What would you say about some people’s saying that Allâhu ta’âlâ and His Prophet (’alaihi ’s-salâm) may lie?” Answer 5: Lying is a deficiency and ugliness. It has been unanimously declared that there is nothing ugly attributable to Allâhu ta’âlâ or His Rasûl (’alaihi ’s-salâm). This is dealt in detail in my book Subhâna ’s-subbûh an ’aybi kazbin makbûh, wherein I provided documents from the ’ulamâ’ of kalâm and tafsîr. In many books by Arab and Persian ’ulamâ’, it is written that those who say so have dissented from the right path and that they are heretics. The book ad-Durar as-saniyya by Hadrat ’Allâma Ahmad ibn Zain ibn Dahlân al-Makkî, who was one of my masters in hadîth, tells in detail about their heresies and quotes passages refuting them from Hadrat Mawlânâ Abu ’s-su’ûd, the muftî of al-Madinat al-munawwara. They have been caught up in the Satan’s current and become the Satan’s soldiers. The Satan’s soldiers will certainly be ruined. Question 6: “Recently there have appeared a group of people called ‘Ghayr al-muqallidîn’, i.e. people not affiliated with a certain madhhab. They neither follow any of the four madhhabs nor let anybody follow one of them. They call themselves ahl alhadîth. They say that they follow only the Hadîth. We see that some ignorant people, who are deprived of religious education and cannot differentiate the truth from the wrong and the straight from the crooked, pass themselves for authorities on religion after learning some Arabic in Egypt, the Hijâz, Iraq or in Damascus and write books on religion. What would you say about them and their books?” Answer 6: In the subject on ‘Zabâyih’ in the marginalia of ad- Durr al-mukhtâr, ’Allâma Sayyid Ahmad at-Tahtâwî, one of the ’ulamâ of the Hanafî madhhab, writes: “One who departs from the path of the ’ulamâ’ of fiqh, from as-siwâd al-a’zam, will have directed himself to Hell. O Muslims! Therefore, hold fast to the [1] It is heard that some people admire the religious and political movement of Homeini of Iran and extoll his personality, despite the known fact that he was hostile to the Sahâba and to all the Sunnîs. They should carefully read this hadîth and fatwâ, learn from them and wake up from unawareness. – 256 –

path of Ahl as-Sunnat wa ’l-Jamâ’a which is called ‘al-firqat annâjiyya’ (group of salvation), the unique group reported by our Prophet (’alaihi ’s-salâm) to be saved from Hell! For, Allâhu ta’âlâ will help, protect and guide to happiness only those who are on this path. Allâhu ta’âlâ’s Ghadab (Wrath) and adhâb (torture) are for those who dissent from this path. Today, this firqat nâjiyya (group of salvation) have gathered in the four madhhabs, namely, Hanafî, Shâfi’î, Mâlikî and Hanbalî. One who does not belong to any of these four madhhabs is a man of bid’a or a man for Hell [heretic or unbeliever].” Great Imâm Sufyân ath-Thawrî (radiy Allâhu ’anh) said, “If one who is not an ’âlim in fiqh tries to adapt himself to hadîths, he leads himself to heresy.” Great Imâm Ibn al-Hajj al- Makki said the same in his work al-Mad’hal. My fatwâs about and articles on the lâ-madhhabî are available in my book Al-bârîkat ash-shârika ’alâ mârikat al-mushârika. Question 7: “Some people say, ‘The lâ-madhhâbî belong to Ahl As-Sunna and are even licensed authorities on religion. They differ from Ahl as-Sunna only in insignificant teachings, and this difference is beneficial like that between the Hanafî, Shâfi’î and Mâlikî madhhabs; thereby they help the religion of Islam. Should not the lâ-madhhabî, therefore be considered like those in the Hanafî and Shâfi’î madhhabs and should not we know them as Muslim brothers and love them heartfully and respect them? Isn’t it the way of people intoxicated with love for Allâhu ta’âlâ to do one’s affairs according to hadîths though one is not a mujtahid? Didn’t Abû Dharr al-Ghaffarî (radiy-Allâhu ’anh), a Sahâbî, act upon the hadîth, “Do not stock your property to make it kanz, a treasure”?’ What would you say about those who say these about the lâ-madhhâbî?” Answer 7: These words are not correct at all. The person who says so becomes one among them, even one worse than them. How could a man of bid’a be respected? A hadîth reported through ’Abdullah ibn Bashîr (radiy-Allâhu ’anh) by at-Tabarânî says, “One who respects the man of bid’a will have helped in the annihilation of Islam.” Another hadîth, reported through Mu’âdh (radiy-Allâhu ’anh) in Kabîr by at-Tabarânî and in Hilya by Abu Nu’aim, says, “One who walks to show respect to the man of bid’a has helped in destroying Islam.” There are many similar hadîths. It is dalâla, heresy, for those not promoted to the status of mujtahid not to follow one of the four madhhabs but to – 257 –
