Miftah-ul-Janna (Booklet for way to Paradise)

Islamic branches of

Islamic branches of knowledge. One day a munâfiq [1] and a jew came to Hadrat Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’, asking the blessed Messenger to adjudicate a dispute between them. Hadrat Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ listened to their claims. Justice came the jew’s way, (so the blessed Messenger of Allah made a judgment in the jew’s favour.) When the munâfiq did not acquiesce to the judgment, Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “O you people! Go to ’Umar, and let him adjudicate between you!” So they went to Hadrat ’Umar ‘radiy- Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’. When the blessed Sahâbî asked why they were there, the munâfiq said: “This jew and I have had a dispute.” Hadrat ’Umar ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’ said: “How can I adjudicate the dispute in comtempt of the Owner of Islam (Messenger of Allah)?” The munâfiq explained: “We went to Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’. He made a judgment in favour of the jew. I would not acquiesce to his judgment.” Presently ’Umar ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ said: “Wait here! I will be back with the solution,” and went in. After a while he was back with a cleaver hidden underneath his garment, and no sooner had he drawn the cleaver than the munâfiq was beheaded. “This is the just deserts of someone who will not acquiesce to Rasûlullah’s verdict,” was the great Sahâbî’s explanation. On account of this significal event was he called ‘’Umar-ul-Fârûq ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’, and he has been called so ever since. Hadrat Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “It is ’Umar who distinguishes right from wrong.” The third most virtuous Walî after him is ’Uthmân-i-Zinnûreyn ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’. His caliphate is rightly-guided, righful. It is a fact ascertained by the ijmâ’-i-Ummat, (i.e. by consensus of the Sahâba.) Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ married two of his blessed daughters to him, one after the other. When his second daughter passed away, he stated: “If I had one more daughter, I would give him that one as well.” When the blessed Messenger married his blessed second daughter to ’Uthmân ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’, he praised his blessed son-in-law highly. After the tejwîj (matrimony, event of marriage), the valuable daughter said: “O my beloved father! You praised Hadrat ’Uthmân so much. He is not so good as (to [1] A munâfiq is an unbeliever who pretends to be a Muslim, lives among Muslims, joins them in some of their acts of worship that they perform together (in jamâ’at). – 238 –

deserve) your blessed praise!” Thereupon Hadrat Rasûlullah ‘sall- Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ said to his daughter: “O my daughter! Angels in heaven feel hayâ (shame) towards Hadrat ’Uthmân!” Because Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ gave him two of his daughters in marriage, (one after the passing of the first one,) he was called ’Uthmân-i-Zinnûreyn. Zinnûreyn means owner of two Nûrs. He is well versed in the knowledge of Ma’rifat (Spiritual knowledge pertaining to Allâhu ta’âlâ). The fourth most virtuous Walî after him is ’Alî ‘kerrem-Allâhu wejheh wa radiy-Allâhu ’anh’. His caliphate is rightful, a fact ascertained by the ijmâ’-i-ummat. He is Rasûlullah’s son-in-law. The beloved Messenger of Allâhu ta’âlâ gave his daughter Hadrat Fâtima ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anhâ’ in marriage to him. He is well versed in the knowledge of Tarîqat. He had a ghulâm (man slave). One day his ghulâm intended to test his master. Hadrat ’Alî ‘radiy- Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’ was outdoors at that time. When he came in and asked the ghulâm for some service, the latter remained silent. Thereafter, Hadrat ’Alî ‘kerrem-Allâhu wejheh’ inquired: “O ghulâm! What wrong have I done to you to offend you and what on my part has hurt you?” The ghulâm replied: “You have done nothing wrong towards me. I am your slave. I have behaved so only to test you. You are a true Walî.” [Muslims who love all the Ashâb-i-kirâm (Sahâba) and who follow in their footsteps are called Ahl as-sunnat (or Sunnî Muslims). Those who say that they love some of them and who hate most of the Sahâba are called Shî’îs (Shiites). Those who are inimical towards all the Sahâba are called Râfidîs. A person who claims to love all the Sahâba but who does not follow any one of them is called a Wahhâbî. Wahhâbîism is a mixture of the ideas of the heretical man of religion named Ahmad ibni Taymiyya and the lies of the British spy named Hempher. They call the Ahl assunnat Muslims ‘disbelievers’ because those true Muslims reject the Wahhâbî tenets of belief. [This stigmatization on their part bounces back on them, making them disbelievers themselves.] The Wahhâbî doctrines were concocted by British plotters in the Arabian peninsula in 1150 [1737 A.D.] They shed a considerable amount of Muslim blood in their efforts to spread the British plans. Today also, they are establishing Wahhâbî centers which they call Râbita-t-ul ’âlam-il-islâmî in every country and hunting unlearned men of religion by showering gold onto them. Through these mercenaries they are misguiding Muslims. They are – 239 –
