  1. The Promised Destruction Preceeding Day Of Judgement Will Be Upon Kafirs & Mushrikeen. Introduction: Heretical Wahhabiyah are of the belief that some eliments of Ummah of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) are engaged in major Shirk. To counter this heretical innovation the Ahle Sunnat use ahadith to substantiate the impossibility of Muslim Ummah of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) being engaged in major Shirk. In response to this evidence, the heretics quote evidence which specificly points of non-Muslim Arab Ummah falling into Shirk after the blowing of the musky fragrant wind, to argue the possibility of major Shirk and to argue the major Shirk taking place within Muslim Ummah in Arabian peninsula. This article will partly explain their misconstrued evidence to establish; the evidence of heretics is figment of their imagination and it does not refute the position of Ahle Sunnat because it refers to disbelievers who would survive Muslims after the blowing of wind. Importantly it will explain the Wahhabi evidence in the context of Ahle Sunnat's position; death of all Muslims will occur before the Day of Judgement and after their death kuffr, Shirk will dominate the earth and it will be upon these disbelievers Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will bring the punishment, the destruction of earth to fulfill the promise of punishment He made. No Punishment Until Gate Of Repentance Is Closed & Muslims Are Dead: Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) asks the Mushrikeen:“Say: "You think, if the punishment of Allah comes to you, whether suddenly or openly, will any be destroyed except those who do wrong?” [Ref: 6:47] The rehotorical question implies the punishment will be collective punishment without excluding anyone accept believers because Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) stated: “But those who reject our signs,- them shall punishment touch, for that they ceased not from transgressing.” [Ref: 6:49] Question arises how will the disbelievers be punished only when entire earth will be destroyed on which there will be Muslims too? As an answer Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has foretold the believers that Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will not punish the disbelivers until you the Muslims are amongst them: “But Allah would not punish them while you are among them, ...” and the verse continues to add another qualifier: “... and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness.” [Ref: 8:33] There are two limits here; one, they can seek forgiveness until they are alive after which the death will take over and they will be punished individually in graves. And second limit is that the kuffar can seek forgiveness until the gate of repentance are closed near the day of judgement. Gates Of Repentance Will Be Closed: Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states about the Mushrikeen: “Wait they, indeed, for nothing less than that the angels should come unto them or thy Lord should come, or there should come one of the signs from your Lord?”[1] [Ref: 6:158] and then Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) tells them about the coming of signs after which their believing in Islam will not benefit them nor doing of good deeds after it: “In the day when one of the signs from thy Lord cometh, then their having faith will not benefit them nor the faithful will benfit if they had not already earned good deeds, Say: You wait! We (too) are waiting.” [Ref: 6:158] And the ahadith mention the last, finale event which would indicate the closing of repentance gate: "The Hour will not be established ... and till the sun rises from the West.[2] So when the sun will rise and the people will see it (rising from the West) they will all believe (embrace Islam) but that will be the time when: 'No good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned good through its Faith.' And the Hour will be established while ...” [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H237] and in another hadith it is recorded: “Abu Mu'sa reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, Stretches out His Yad during the night so that the people repent for the fault committed from dawn till dusk and He stretches out His Yad daring the day so that the people may repent for the fault committed from dusk to dawn. (He would accept repentance) before the sun rises in the west. A hadith like this has been narrated on the authority of Shu'ba with the same chain of transmitters.” [Ref: Muslim, B37, H6644] The sign of beast from the earth is mentioned in the Quran: “And when the word is fulfilled concerning them, We shall bring forth a beast of the earth to speak unto them because mankind had not faith in Our revelations.” [Ref: 27:82] and in another hadith it is stated: “... I committed to memory a hadith from Allah's Messenger and I did not forget it after I had heard Allah's Messenger as saying: The first sign would be the appearance of the sun from the west, the appearance of the beast before the people in the forenoon and which of the two happens first, the second one would follow immediately after that.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H7025] Readers should note; there are other ahadith which indicate the coming of the smoke, the general turmoil[3], the Dajjal as being indications of closing of gate of repentance: “When three things appear faith will not benefit one who has not previously believed or has derived no good from his faith: the rising of the sun in its place of setting, the Dajjal, and the beast of the earth.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H296] and interpretation of Quranic verse: “In the day when one of the signs from thy Lord cometh, then their having faith will not benefit them nor the faithful will benfit if they had not already earned good deeds, Say: You wait! We (too) are waiting.” [Ref: 6:158] in light of coming of Isa (alayhis sallam) as a sign: “And he shall be a sign of the Hour. Therefore have no doubt about the Hour, but follow Me. That is the straight path.” [Ref: 43:61] means; Prophet Isa (alayhis salam) is also a sign of closing of gate of repentance which will happen prior to day of judgement.[4] The appearance of Jewish impostor al Masih ad-Dajjal, return of Isa (alayhis sallam), general turmoil, the smoke, would indicate the nearness of closing the gate of repentance. The actual closing of gate of repentance will be rising of sun from West, and beast of earth after which no good deeds will be rewarded nor believing in Islam would benefit anyone. And it will be after this time that Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) cause the Muslims to die by sending a wind to fullfil which He has promised: “But Allah would not punish them while you are among them, ...” [Ref: 8:33] The Disbelievers Asked For Punishment: The disbelievers mockingly asked for the punishment to be sent from skies if the message of Quran given to Prophet Muhammad (sallalahua layhi was'sallam) was truth: “And when they said: "O Allah! If this is indeed the truth from You, then rain down stones on us from the sky or bring on us a painful torment.'' [Ref: 8:32] in response Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) informs Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam😞 “And indeed Messengers were mocked at before you but I granted respite to those who disbelieved, and finally I punished them. Then how (terrible) was My punishment!” [Ref: 13:32] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states if:“Were He to call them to account for what they have earned, then surely, He would have hastened their punishment. But they have their appointed time, beyond which they will find no escape.” [Ref: 18:58] and finally Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) instructs: “The Event ordained by Allah will come to pass, so seek not to hasten it. Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate as partners with Him.” [Ref: 16:1] Then adressing the disbelivers Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states: “And let not the disbelievers think that Our postponing of their punishment is good for them. We postpone the punishment only so that they may increase in sinfulness. And for them is a disgracing torment.” [Ref: 3:178] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) focusing toward Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) states: “And they urge you to hasten the punishment. And if not for [the decree of] a specified term, punishment would have reached them. But it will surely come to them suddenly while they perceive not.” [Ref: 29:53] in another verse Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states: “And they urge you to hasten the punishment. And if not for [the decree of] a specified term, punishment would have reached them. But it will surely come to them suddenly while they perceive not.”[5] [Ref: 29:53] Allah Will Take The Life Of Muslims By Gentle Wind: Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) foretold: “The hour will not come until tribes (i.e. qabail) of my Ummah join the polytheists and worship idols. And in my Ummah there will be thirty liars each of them will claim he is a Prophet. While I am the Seal (i.e. Last) of Prophets. There is no Prophet after me.” [Ref: Tirmadhi, B36, H2226] “The Last Hour would not come until the women of the tribe of Daus would be seen going round Dhi al-Khalasa[6] (for worship) and Dhi al-Khalasa is a place in tabala, where there was a temple in which the people of the tribe of Daus used to worship the idol." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6944] and in another hadith with slight variation of wording: "The Hour will not be established till the buttocks of the women of the tribe of Daus move while going round Dhi-al-Khalasa." Dhi-al-Khalasa was the idol of the Daus tribe which they used to worship in the Pre Islamic Period of ignorance.” [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H232] When Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] Hadhrat Aysha (radiallah ta'ala anha) said him about his statement: “Allah's Messenger, I think when Allah has revealed this verse: "He it is Who has sent His Messenger with right guidance, and true religion, so that He may cause it to prevail upon all religions, though the polytheists are averse (to it)", it implies that is going to be fulfilled.” Then Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) replied: “It would happen as Allah would like. Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die[7] and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] “... and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] “Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the charactertistics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil.” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] Describing the characteristics of the wind would be pleasant: “... wind which will be fragrant like musk and whose touch will be like the touch of silk; (but) it will cause the death of all (faithful) persons, not leaving behind a single person with an iota of faith in his heart. Then only the worst of men will remain to be overwhelmed by the Hour. ” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4721] Another hadith makes it absolutely clear that no Muslims will be left: “... Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] and that will be a time when “... the milch camel would give such (a large quantity of) milk that the whole tribe would be able to drink out of that and the milch sheep would give so much milk that the whole family would be able to drink out of that and ...” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] in other words: “... they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives.”[8] [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] After The Death Of Muslims Some Arabs Disbelievers Will Revert To Idolatry: At this stage Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) would have fullfilled his promise of: “But Allah would not punish them while you are among them, and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness.” [Ref: 8:33] by sending musky silk like wind which would have taken the life of believers: “... Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and ...” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] and the gates of repentance for kuffar will be firmly shut: “In the day when one of the signs from thy Lord cometh, then their having faith will not benefit them nor the faithful will benfit if they had not already earned good deeds, Say: You wait! We (too) are waiting.” [Ref: 6:158] Then the remaining disbelievers will be visited by Shaytan in human form and then he would say: “Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us?” Shaytan would: “... command them to worship the idols but, in spite of this, they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives.” [Ref: Muslim B41, H7023] “... they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] It would be after inciting of Shaytan that Arabs would worship Lat, Uzza, Dhi Al Khalasa and then the women of tribe of Daws will dance rotating their buttocks while making Tawaf of their ancesterial idol.“Then only the worst of men will remain to be overwhelmed by the Hour.” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4721] “Then the trumpet would be blown and no one would hear that but he would bend his neck to one side and raise it from the other side ...” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] as if one is attempting to listen to where the sound is coming from. Shirk & Kuffr Will Be The Order Of Earth: Imam Mahdi and return of Isa (alayhis sallam) both will fight in the cause of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) to establish the superiority of deen of Islam over those who will oppose it. And with means of their struggle Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will fullfil the promise of Islam dominating all the religions of earth: “It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the polytheists hate (it).” [Ref: 9:33] After which Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will cause all the Muslims of earth to die. The remaining disbelievers of Arabian peninsula and the Kafirs in general will revert to idolatry and worship idols of their pre-islamic ancestors: “It would happen as Allah would like. Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them. And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] And a hadith records the saying of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam😞 "The Hour will not come until no-one on earth says 'La ilaha il-lallah.'" [Ref: M.I.Ahmad, Hadith 13833] It means there will be no anyone left to teach, believe, or to say the teaching of Tawheed: “There is no god except Allah.” The ignorance about Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) reach to such a level there will be no one left on earth to remember Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) by His personel name: “It was also reported from Anas that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe was'sallam) said: "The Hour will not come until no-one on earth says, 'Allah, Allah'."[9] [Ref: M.I.Ahmad,Hadith 12044] At such time of ignorance Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will inflict the punishment, the torment, upon the kuffar which He has promised that it would preceed before judgement day: “A questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall. Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert[10]. From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. The angels and the Ruh ascend to Him in a Day the measure whereof is fifty thousand years. So be patient with a good patience. Verily! They see it (i.e. coming of punishment) impossible far off. But We see it near.” [Ref: 70:1/7] In the past majority of inhabitants of earth were polytheists: "Say: "Travel in the land and see what was the end of those before (you)! Most of them were Mushrikun.[11]" [Ref: 30:42] And it is observed that marjority of people of earth at present are polytheists; Christians, Hindu's, Buddhist's and these religions have beliefe in a Supreme God as well as subordinate gods, under the command of Supreme God hence the verse: “And most of them believe in Allah except that they attribute partners unto Him.”[12] [Ref: 12:106] identifies the current state of earth not just of past. Therefore a educated assumption is that in future majority who would survive the blowing of wind will eventually revert to polytheism. As part of world wide revival of polytheism and Arabs reverting to polytheistic religion of their ancestors would be part of this revival.[13] The Trumpet Will Be Blown To Signal The Coming Judgement Day: The beginning of greater destruction on earth will begin with blowing of the trumpet. When the trumpet is blown the first time the mountains will be turned to dust and the earth as we know it will be destroyed: “Then when the Trumpet will be blown with one blowing (the first one). And the earth and the mountains shall be removed from their places, and crushed with a single crushing.” [Ref: 69:13/15] Another verse adds more detail on destruction of mountains:“And you will see the mountains and think them solid, but they shall pass away as the passing away of the clouds. The Work of Allah, Who perfected all things, verily He is Well-Acquainted with what you do.” [Ref: 27:88] Earth will be levelled plain with the crumbling of mountains: “And (remember) the Day We shall cause the mountains to pass away (like clouds of dust), and you will see the earth as a levelled plain, and[14] ... [Ref: 18:47] This global level destruction will spread fear: “And [warn of] the Day the Trumpet will be blown, and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth will be terrified except whom Allah wills.” [Ref: 27:87] and the fear would be so much that it will cause the child carers to neglect children, pregnant women will have miscrage: “On the Day you see it every nursing mother will be distracted from that [child] she was nursing, and every pregnant woman will abort her pregnancy, and you will see the people [appearing] intoxicated while they are not intoxicated; but the punishment of Allah is severe.” [Ref: 22:2] At this critical time, the verse states that people would swoon: “And the Trumpet will be blown, and all who are in the heavens and all who are on the earth will swoon[15] (i.e. die) away, except him whom God wills.”[Ref: 39:68] The hadith of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) explains that swoon is in meaning of death. After the death of inhabitants of earth Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will then roll back universe and then the big bang will repeat again: "'The day' when, We shall roll up the heavens as a recorder rolls up a written scroll.[16] As We began the first creation We shall repeat it." [Ref: 21:104] The first creation was began with big bang, and living creatures were created from water: "Have not "those who disbelieve" known that heavens and earth were of one piece, We parted them and, We made every living thing of water, will they not then believe?" [Ref: 21:30] So the second creation will begin with big bang and the living will return to life with water. Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will send a rain as explained by Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam😞 “Then Allah will send rain like dew and bodies of people will grow from it[17], then the trumpet will be blown again and they will stand up and begin to look around.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H7023] The fallowing verses are the basis of content of hadith:“... and behold! From the graves they will come out quickly to their Lord.” [Ref: 36:51]“.., and at once they will be standing, looking on.” [Ref: 39:68] Conclusion: Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has stated that he will not punish the disbelievers for their disbelief until they can repent from their non-Islamic ways and nor He would punish them while the Muslims live amongst them. The final limit for the seeking of forgiveness is before death and before closing of the gate of repentance as well as the death of Muslims which will take place when Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will send a gentle, smooth, fragrant wind which will take the lives of all believers. Leaving behind the kuffar out of which some will revert to idolatry especially some of the Arabs. Who would worship the idol gods of their ancestors; Lat, Uzza and Dhi Al Khalasa. And it will be time when kuffr and Shirk will be the order of the day and none will be encourage good nor prohibit evil. Then trumpet will be blown it will strike fear in the hearts of disbelievers, the pregnant women will have miscraige and all people of would die, the mountains will crumble to dust and Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will reverse the expansion of universe until it reaches to stage of Big Bang. Then he will command it to explode into being again as it did the first time and a similar earth will be created again: "On the day when the earth will be changed to other than this earth and the heavens also And they will come forth unto God, The One The Almighty." [Ref: 14: 48] Upon it Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) cause the rain to decend and when the second trumpet is blown the dead will rise from their graves. Wama alayna ilal balaghul mubeen. Muhammed Ali Razavi Footnotes: - [1] “... reported the saying of Prophet, Allah's words: “...or there should come one of the signs from your Lord?” He said; (These signs include) the rising of the sun from the West.” [Ref: Tirmadhi, H3082, English] - [2] When the sun rises from the West all the disbelievers will believe in Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has their One, the Only God, Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) as their Prophet, and Quran as the relevation of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala😞 “... and the people see it, they all will believe.” But it will be in a time when believing will do: “ And that is (the time) when no good will it do to a soul to believe then." because the the potent signs of the impending doom would be clear as day: “In the day when one of the signs from thy Lord cometh, then their having faith will not benefit them nor the faithful will benfit if they had not already earned good deeds, Say: You wait! We (too) are waiting.” [Ref: Bukhari, B60, H160] - [3] “Hasten in performing these good deeds (before these) six things (happen): (the appearance) of tribe Dajjal, the smoke, the beast of the earth, the rising of the sun from the west, the general turmoil (leading to large-scale massacre) and death of masses and individuals.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H7040] - [4] Accepting appearance of Dajjal and Prophet Isa (alayhis salam) as sign of closing of gate of repentance means that gate of repentance would be closed with their arrival. Hence any deed done thereafter would not benefit and it will end the possibility of spread of Islam but this would contradict the ahadith which stipulate Hadhrat Isa (alayhis salam) will fight for the cause of Islam. And he will abolish Jaziya (i.e. a tax for non-muslims) which means he will abrogate the traditional practice of offering to non-Muslims; Islam or Jaziya and replace it with; Islam or death. Refusal to accept Islam will mean certain death and only acceptance of Islam would save a non-Muslims life. Now if the gate of repentance was closed with appearnce of Dajjal, even before the arrival of Hadhrat Isa (alayhis salam) then offer of acceptance of Islam would be meaningless. Note: I have found it extremely difficult to reconcile these ahadith with each other. So it would be help if someone can shed some light on the issue. Despite the difficulties a harmonised account is presented. If I have written anything which challenges established scholarship of Ahle Sunnat of past or present, please fallow the guidance of those Ulamah on this issue. Allah knows best. - [5] In interpretation of: “But it will surely come to them suddenly while they perceive not.” [Ref: 29:53] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) foretold the swiftness of the destruction preceeding day of judgement and the daily activities of people: “And the Hour will be established while two men spreading a garment in front of them but they will not be able to sell it, nor fold it up; and the Hour will be established when a man has milked his she-camel and has taken away the milk but he will not be able to drink it; and the Hour will be established before a man repairing a tank (for his livestock) is able to water (his animals) in it; and the Hour will be established when a person has raised a morsel (of food) to his mouth but will not be able to eat it." [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H237] This indicates that people of earth will be engaged in their daily activities and will have no knowledge of impending nor will they percieve the coming of doom as well as of the swiftness of the destruction that will overtake the people. - [6] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: "Will you relieve me from Dhi-al-Khalasa? " Dhi-al-Khalasa was an idol which the people used to worship and it was (also) called Al-Ka'ba al Yamaniyya.” Hadhrat Jarir replied: "O Allah's Apostle I am a man who can't sit firm on horses." So he stroked my chest (with his hand) and said, "O Allah! Make him firm and make him a guiding and well-guided man." So I went out with fifty (men) from my tribe of Ahrnas ... and came to Dhi-al-Khalasa and burnt it, ...” then he came back to Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) and informed him of success in burning the idol: "O Allah's Apostle! I have not come to you till I left it like a camel with a skin disease." Upon hearing the news: “The Prophet then invoked good upon Ahmas and their cavalry.” [Ref: Bukhari, B75, H345] - [7] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: "If Allah wants to do a favor to somebody, He bestows on him, the gift of understanding the Quran and Sunna. I am but a distributor, and Allah is the Giver. The state of this nation will remain good till the Hour is established, or till Allah's Order comes." [Ref: Bukhari, B92, H415] The coming Order would be of blowing of wind: “Then Allah would send cold wind from the side of Syria that none would survive upon the earth having a speck of good in him or faith in him but he would die, so much so that even if some amongst you were to enter the innermost part of the mountain, this wind would reach that place also and that would cause his death.” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] After which the state of Ummah would change from good to bad: “Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the charactertistics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil.” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] in another hadith Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “... Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and ...” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] - [8] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states that rich people of the cities disbelieve in the Prophets and the message they brought: “And We did not send a warner to a township but those who were given the worldly wealth and luxuries among them said: "We believe not in the (Message) with which you have been sent." [Ref: 34:34] And the hadith states that the rich people would worship idols and reject the religion of Islam after the blowing of wind. - [9] It is practice of Ahlus Sunnah especially those who are inclined toward Sufi tariqa (i.e. way, path, method) of self purification, rectification; they remember Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) by reciting continously: ' La ilaha il-lallah.' and then in the finale stage the zikr (i.e. remeberance) of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) is purely with continous repeating of : Allah, Allah, Allah. In this context the saying of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam😞 "The Hour will not come until no-one on earth says, 'Allah, Allah'." could also mean that there will be no Zikr of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) because the Muslims as well as the Ahle Sunnat would have died after the blowing of gentle breeze. - [10] “And Our punishment cannot be warded off from the people who are Mujrimun (i.e. criminals, sinners, disbelievers, polytheists).” [Ref: 12:110] - [11] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) stated in presence of: “... about forty men, were with the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) in a camp when he said: Aren't you pleased that they should constitute one-fourth of the inhabitants of Paradise? He (the narrator) said: Yes. He (the Holy Prophet) again said: Aren't you pleased that you should constitute one-third of the inhabitants of Paradise? They said: Yes. Upon this he again said: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, I hope that you would constitute one-half of the inhabitants of Paradise and the reason is that no one would be admitted into Paradise but a believer and you are no more among the polytheists than as a white hair on the skin of a black ox or a black hair on the skin of a red ox.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H428] This hadith makes it clear that Mushrikeen were majority in the time of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) and will remain overwhelming majority till the destruction of inhabitants of earth is carried out: And most of them believe in Allah except that they attribute partners unto Him.” [Ref: 12:106] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) invites to examine the pre-Islamic era and declares: "Say: "Travel in the land and see what was the end of those before (you)! Most of them were Mushrikun.! " [Ref: 30:42] So in pre-Islamic era and post Islamic era the majority was, majority will be of Mushrikeen by the ratio mentioned by Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam). - [12] According to the primary historical context of the verse: “And most of them believe in Allah except that they attribute partners unto Him.” [Ref: 12:106] The verse means; most of the inhabitants of Arabian peninsula at the time of revelation of this verse were polytheists who believed in Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) as their God but attributed partners to Him. But this verse is not specific about a region or group of people. It is general therefore as long as conditions of the verse is fullfilled it can be applied to any region, any group of people, or even entire people of earth. - [13] Allah knows best about the actual reality of the belives of people. Readers are not obligated to believe in any aspect of this assumption and it would not effect negatively upon their aqeedah if one doesn't believe so. The fundamental belief which must be confirmed to be a Muslim is; the coming of judgement day and all its desruction will be inflicted upon disbelievers. - [14] “And (remember) the Day We shall cause the mountains to pass away (like clouds of dust), and you will see the earth as a levelled plain, and [after the second trumpet blows] we shall gather them all together so as to leave not one of them behind.” [Ref: 18:47] - [15] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) explained; Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will send a rain which will cause the dead people to grow out of earth as vegetation grows:“Then the trumpet would be blown and no one would hear that but he would bend his neck to one side and raise it from the other side (i.e. trying to hear the sound) and the first one to hear that trumpet would be the person who would be busy in setting right the tank meant for providing water to the camels. He would swoon and the other people would also swoon, then Allah would send or He would cause to send rain which would be like dew and there would grow out of it the bodies of the people. Then the second trumpet would be blown and they would stand up and begin to look (around). Then it would be said: O people, go to your Lord, and make them stand there. And they would be questioned. Then it would be said: Bring out a group (out of them) for the Hell-Fire. And then it would be asked: How much? It would be said: Nine hundred and ninty-nine out of one thousand for the Hell-Fire and that would be the day which would make the children old because of its terror and that would be the day about which it has been said:" On the day when the shank would be uncovered.” [Ref: Muslim, Book 41, Hadith 7023] - [16] The explosion of unimaginably dense matter which resulted in the universe and its continous expansion is called the Big Bang theory. The scientist community now believes in theory contraction of the universe to the point of starting. (i.e. Big Crunch). This theory states if the expansion of universe does not exceed the escape velocity then the combined gravitational attraction of all matter within the universe will cause it to contract to the point where it started and then the Big Bang will repeat. This theory accords with this teaching of Quranic verse, Allah knows better. - [17] The growing of bodies from earth after the rain is explained in the verse: “He brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living. And He revives the earth after its death. And thus shall you be brought out (resurrected).” [Ref: 30:19] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states He brings out the living from the dead and in the same way Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will bring the dead humans beings to life for judgement day. The question is how does Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) achieve this feet: “... in the rain which Allah Sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; ... (Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise.” [Ref: 2:164] Another verse states: “Verily! It is Allah Who causes the seed-grain and the fruit-stone (like date-stone) to split and sprout. He brings forth the living from the dead, and it is He Who brings forth the dead from the living. Such is Allah, then how are you deluded away from the truth?” [Ref: 6:95] This establishes Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) brings out the living from dead via seeds and rain water. This is affirmed in another verse of the Quran:“It is He Who sends the winds like heralds of glad tidings, going before His mercy: when they have carried the heavy-laden clouds, We drive them to a land that is dead, make rain to descend thereon, and produce every kind of harvest therewith: thus shall We raise up the dead: perchance ye may remember.” [Ref: 7:57] and in verse: “Then contemplate (O man!) the memorials of Allah's Mercy! How He gives life to the earth after its death: verily the same will give life to the men who are dead: for He has power over all things.” [Ref: 30:50] In conclusion just as vegetation grows out of dead earth the mankind will be ressurected in similar fashion.

  4. The Promised Destruction Preceeding Day Of Judgement Will Be Upon Kafirs & Mushrikeen.
  5. Introduction: Heretical Wahhabiyah are of the belief that some eliments of Ummah of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) are engaged in major Shirk. To counter this heretical innovation the Ahle Sunnat use ahadith to substantiate the impossibility of Muslim Ummah of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) being engaged in major Shirk. In response to this evidence, the heretics quote evidence which specificly points of non-Muslim Arab Ummah falling into Shirk after the blowing of the musky fragrant wind, to argue the possibility of major Shirk and to argue the major Shirk taking place within Muslim Ummah in Arabian peninsula. This article will partly explain their misconstrued evidence to establish; the evidence of heretics is figment of their imagination and it does not refute the position of Ahle Sunnat because it refers to disbelievers who would survive Muslims after the blowing of wind. Importantly it will explain the Wahhabi evidence in the context of Ahle Sunnat's position; death of all Muslims will occur before the Day of Judgement and after their death kuffr, Shirk will dominate the earth and it will be upon these disbelievers Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will bring the punishment, the destruction of earth to fulfill the promise of punishment He made. No Punishment Until Gate Of Repentance Is Closed & Muslims Are Dead: Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) asks the Mushrikeen:“Say: "You think, if the punishment of Allah comes to you, whether suddenly or openly, will any be destroyed except those who do wrong?” [Ref: 6:47] The rehotorical question implies the punishment will be collective punishment without excluding anyone accept believers because Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) stated: “But those who reject our signs,- them shall punishment touch, for that they ceased not from transgressing.” [Ref: 6:49] Question arises how will the disbelievers be punished only when entire earth will be destroyed on which there will be Muslims too? As an answer Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has foretold the believers that Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will not punish the disbelivers until you the Muslims are amongst them: “But Allah would not punish them while you are among them, ...” and the verse continues to add another qualifier: “... and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness.” [Ref: 8:33] There are two limits here; one, they can seek forgiveness until they are alive after which the death will take over and they will be punished individually in graves. And second limit is that the kuffar can seek forgiveness until the gate of repentance are closed near the day of judgement. Gates Of Repentance Will Be Closed: Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states about the Mushrikeen: “Wait they, indeed, for nothing less than that the angels should come unto them or thy Lord should come, or there should come one of the signs from your Lord?”[1] [Ref: 6:158] and then Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) tells them about the coming of signs after which their believing in Islam will not benefit them nor doing of good deeds after it: “In the day when one of the signs from thy Lord cometh, then their having faith will not benefit them nor the faithful will benfit if they had not already earned good deeds, Say: You wait! We (too) are waiting.” [Ref: 6:158] And the ahadith mention the last, finale event which would indicate the closing of repentance gate: "The Hour will not be established ... and till the sun rises from the West.[2] So when the sun will rise and the people will see it (rising from the West) they will all believe (embrace Islam) but that will be the time when: 'No good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned good through its Faith.' And the Hour will be established while ...” [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H237] and in another hadith it is recorded: “Abu Mu'sa reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, Stretches out His Yad during the night so that the people repent for the fault committed from dawn till dusk and He stretches out His Yad daring the day so that the people may repent for the fault committed from dusk to dawn. (He would accept repentance) before the sun rises in the west. A hadith like this has been narrated on the authority of Shu'ba with the same chain of transmitters.” [Ref: Muslim, B37, H6644] The sign of beast from the earth is mentioned in the Quran: “And when the word is fulfilled concerning them, We shall bring forth a beast of the earth to speak unto them because mankind had not faith in Our revelations.” [Ref: 27:82] and in another hadith it is stated: “... I committed to memory a hadith from Allah's Messenger and I did not forget it after I had heard Allah's Messenger as saying: The first sign would be the appearance of the sun from the west, the appearance of the beast before the people in the forenoon and which of the two happens first, the second one would follow immediately after that.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H7025] Readers should note; there are other ahadith which indicate the coming of the smoke, the general turmoil[3], the Dajjal as being indications of closing of gate of repentance: “When three things appear faith will not benefit one who has not previously believed or has derived no good from his faith: the rising of the sun in its place of setting, the Dajjal, and the beast of the earth.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H296] and interpretation of Quranic verse: “In the day when one of the signs from thy Lord cometh, then their having faith will not benefit them nor the faithful will benfit if they had not already earned good deeds, Say: You wait! We (too) are waiting.” [Ref: 6:158] in light of coming of Isa (alayhis sallam) as a sign: “And he shall be a sign of the Hour. Therefore have no doubt about the Hour, but follow Me. That is the straight path.” [Ref: 43:61] means; Prophet Isa (alayhis salam) is also a sign of closing of gate of repentance which will happen prior to day of judgement.[4] The appearance of Jewish impostor al Masih ad-Dajjal, return of Isa (alayhis sallam), general turmoil, the smoke, would indicate the nearness of closing the gate of repentance. The actual closing of gate of repentance will be rising of sun from West, and beast of earth after which no good deeds will be rewarded nor believing in Islam would benefit anyone. And it will be after this time that Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) cause the Muslims to die by sending a wind to fullfil which He has promised: “But Allah would not punish them while you are among them, ...” [Ref: 8:33] The Disbelievers Asked For Punishment: The disbelievers mockingly asked for the punishment to be sent from skies if the message of Quran given to Prophet Muhammad (sallalahua layhi was'sallam) was truth: “And when they said: "O Allah! If this is indeed the truth from You, then rain down stones on us from the sky or bring on us a painful torment.'' [Ref: 8:32] in response Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) informs Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam): “And indeed Messengers were mocked at before you but I granted respite to those who disbelieved, and finally I punished them. Then how (terrible) was My punishment!” [Ref: 13:32] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states if:“Were He to call them to account for what they have earned, then surely, He would have hastened their punishment. But they have their appointed time, beyond which they will find no escape.” [Ref: 18:58] and finally Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) instructs: “The Event ordained by Allah will come to pass, so seek not to hasten it. Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate as partners with Him.” [Ref: 16:1] Then adressing the disbelivers Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states: “And let not the disbelievers think that Our postponing of their punishment is good for them. We postpone the punishment only so that they may increase in sinfulness. And for them is a disgracing torment.” [Ref: 3:178] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) focusing toward Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) states: “And they urge you to hasten the punishment. And if not for [the decree of] a specified term, punishment would have reached them. But it will surely come to them suddenly while they perceive not.” [Ref: 29:53] in another verse Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states: “And they urge you to hasten the punishment. And if not for [the decree of] a specified term, punishment would have reached them. But it will surely come to them suddenly while they perceive not.”[5] [Ref: 29:53] Allah Will Take The Life Of Muslims By Gentle Wind: Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) foretold: “The hour will not come until tribes (i.e. qabail) of my Ummah join the polytheists and worship idols. And in my Ummah there will be thirty liars each of them will claim he is a Prophet. While I am the Seal (i.e. Last) of Prophets. There is no Prophet after me.” [Ref: Tirmadhi, B36, H2226] “The Last Hour would not come until the women of the tribe of Daus would be seen going round Dhi al-Khalasa[6] (for worship) and Dhi al-Khalasa is a place in tabala, where there was a temple in which the people of the tribe of Daus used to worship the idol." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6944] and in another hadith with slight variation of wording: "The Hour will not be established till the buttocks of the women of the tribe of Daus move while going round Dhi-al-Khalasa." Dhi-al-Khalasa was the idol of the Daus tribe which they used to worship in the Pre Islamic Period of ignorance.” [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H232] When Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] Hadhrat Aysha (radiallah ta'ala anha) said him about his statement: “Allah's Messenger, I think when Allah has revealed this verse: "He it is Who has sent His Messenger with right guidance, and true religion, so that He may cause it to prevail upon all religions, though the polytheists are averse (to it)", it implies that is going to be fulfilled.” Then Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) replied: “It would happen as Allah would like. Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die[7] and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] “... and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] “Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the charactertistics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil.” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] Describing the characteristics of the wind would be pleasant: “... wind which will be fragrant like musk and whose touch will be like the touch of silk; (but) it will cause the death of all (faithful) persons, not leaving behind a single person with an iota of faith in his heart. Then only the worst of men will remain to be overwhelmed by the Hour. ” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4721] Another hadith makes it absolutely clear that no Muslims will be left: “... Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] and that will be a time when “... the milch camel would give such (a large quantity of) milk that the whole tribe would be able to drink out of that and the milch sheep would give so much milk that the whole family would be able to drink out of that and ...” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] in other words: “... they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives.”[8] [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] After The Death Of Muslims Some Arabs Disbelievers Will Revert To Idolatry: At this stage Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) would have fullfilled his promise of: “But Allah would not punish them while you are among them, and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness.” [Ref: 8:33] by sending musky silk like wind which would have taken the life of believers: “... Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and ...” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] and the gates of repentance for kuffar will be firmly shut: “In the day when one of the signs from thy Lord cometh, then their having faith will not benefit them nor the faithful will benfit if they had not already earned good deeds, Say: You wait! We (too) are waiting.” [Ref: 6:158] Then the remaining disbelievers will be visited by Shaytan in human form and then he would say: “Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us?” Shaytan would: “... command them to worship the idols but, in spite of this, they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives.” [Ref: Muslim B41, H7023] “... they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] It would be after inciting of Shaytan that Arabs would worship Lat, Uzza, Dhi Al Khalasa and then the women of tribe of Daws will dance rotating their buttocks while making Tawaf of their ancesterial idol.“Then only the worst of men will remain to be overwhelmed by the Hour.” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4721] “Then the trumpet would be blown and no one would hear that but he would bend his neck to one side and raise it from the other side ...” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] as if one is attempting to listen to where the sound is coming from. Shirk & Kuffr Will Be The Order Of Earth: Imam Mahdi and return of Isa (alayhis sallam) both will fight in the cause of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) to establish the superiority of deen of Islam over those who will oppose it. And with means of their struggle Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will fullfil the promise of Islam dominating all the religions of earth: “It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the polytheists hate (it).” [Ref: 9:33] After which Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will cause all the Muslims of earth to die. The remaining disbelievers of Arabian peninsula and the Kafirs in general will revert to idolatry and worship idols of their pre-islamic ancestors: “It would happen as Allah would like. Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them. And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] And a hadith records the saying of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam): "The Hour will not come until no-one on earth says 'La ilaha il-lallah.'" [Ref: M.I.Ahmad, Hadith 13833] It means there will be no anyone left to teach, believe, or to say the teaching of Tawheed: “There is no god except Allah.” The ignorance about Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) reach to such a level there will be no one left on earth to remember Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) by His personel name: “It was also reported from Anas that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe was'sallam) said: "The Hour will not come until no-one on earth says, 'Allah, Allah'."[9] [Ref: M.I.Ahmad,Hadith 12044] At such time of ignorance Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will inflict the punishment, the torment, upon the kuffar which He has promised that it would preceed before judgement day: “A questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall. Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert[10]. From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. The angels and the Ruh ascend to Him in a Day the measure whereof is fifty thousand years. So be patient with a good patience. Verily! They see it (i.e. coming of punishment) impossible far off. But We see it near.” [Ref: 70:1/7] In the past majority of inhabitants of earth were polytheists: "Say: "Travel in the land and see what was the end of those before (you)! Most of them were Mushrikun.[11]" [Ref: 30:42] And it is observed that marjority of people of earth at present are polytheists; Christians, Hindu's, Buddhist's and these religions have beliefe in a Supreme God as well as subordinate gods, under the command of Supreme God hence the verse: “And most of them believe in Allah except that they attribute partners unto Him.”[12] [Ref: 12:106] identifies the current state of earth not just of past. Therefore a educated assumption is that in future majority who would survive the blowing of wind will eventually revert to polytheism. As part of world wide revival of polytheism and Arabs reverting to polytheistic religion of their ancestors would be part of this revival.[13] The Trumpet Will Be Blown To Signal The Coming Judgement Day: The beginning of greater destruction on earth will begin with blowing of the trumpet. When the trumpet is blown the first time the mountains will be turned to dust: “Then when the Trumpet will be blown with one blowing (the first one). And the earth and the mountains shall be removed from their places, and crushed with a single crushing.” [Ref: 69:13/15] and another verse more detail:“And you will see the mountains and think them solid, but they shall pass away as the passing away of the clouds. The Work of Allah, Who perfected all things, verily He is Well-Acquainted with what you do.” [Ref: 27:88] Earth will be levelled plain with the crumbling of mountains: “And (remember) the Day We shall cause the mountains to pass away (like clouds of dust), and you will see the earth as a levelled plain, and[14] ... [Ref: 18:47] This global level destruction will spread fear: “And [warn of] the Day the Trumpet will be blown, and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth will be terrified except whom Allah wills.” [Ref: 27:87] and the fear would be so much that it will cause the child carers to neglect children, pregnant women will have miscrage: “On the Day you see it every nursing mother will be distracted from that [child] she was nursing, and every pregnant woman will abort her pregnancy, and you will see the people [appearing] intoxicated while they are not intoxicated; but the punishment of Allah is severe.” [Ref: 22:2] At this critical time, the verse states that people would swoon: “And the Trumpet will be blown, and all who are in the heavens and all who are on the earth will swoon[15] (i.e. die) away, except him whom God wills.”[Ref: 39:68] The hadith of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) explains that swoon is in meaning of death. After the death of inhabitants of earth Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will then roll back universe and then the big bang will repeat again: "'The day' when, We shall roll up the heavens as a recorder rolls up a written scroll.[16] As We began the first creation We shall repeat it." [Ref: 21:104] The first creation was began with big bang, and living creatures were created from water: "Have not "those who disbelieve" known that heavens and earth were of one piece, We parted them and, We made every living thing of water, will they not then believe?" [Ref: 21:30] So the second creation will begin with big bang and the living will return to life with water. Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will send a rain as explained by Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam): “Then Allah will send rain like dew and bodies of people will grow from it[17], then the trumpet will be blown again and they will stand up and begin to look around.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H7023] The fallowing verses are the basis of content of hadith:“... and behold! From the graves they will come out quickly to their Lord.” [Ref: 36:51]“.., and at once they will be standing, looking on.” [Ref: 39:68] Conclusion: Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has stated that he will not punish the disbelievers for their disbelief until they can repent from their non-Islamic ways and nor He would punish them while the Muslims live amongst them. The final limit for the seeking of forgiveness is before death and before closing of the gate of repentance as well as the death of Muslims which will take place when Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will send a gentle, smooth, fragrant wind which will take the lives of all believers. Leaving behind the kuffar out of which some will revert to idolatry especially some of the Arabs. Who would worship the idol gods of their ancestors; Lat, Uzza and Dhi Al Khalasa. And it will be time when kuffr and Shirk will be the order of the day and none will be encourage good nor prohibit evil. Then trumpet will be blown it will strike fear in the hearts of disbelievers, the pregnant women will have miscraige and all people of would die, the mountains will crumble to dust and Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will reverse the expansion of universe until it reaches to stage of Big Bang. Then he will command it to explode into being again as it did the first time and a similar earth will be created again: "On the day when the earth will be changed to other than this earth and the heavens also And they will come forth unto God, The One The Almighty." [Ref: 14: 48] Upon it Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) cause the rain to decend and when the second trumpet is blown the dead will rise from their graves. Wama alayna ilal balaghul mubeen. Muhammed Ali Razavi Footnotes: - [1] “... reported the saying of Prophet, Allah's words: “...or there should come one of the signs from your Lord?” He said; (These signs include) the rising of the sun from the West.” [Ref: Tirmadhi, H3082, English] - [2] When the sun rises from the West all the disbelievers will believe in Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has their One, the Only God, Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) as their Prophet, and Quran as the relevation of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala): “... and the people see it, they all will believe.” But it will be in a time when believing will do: “ And that is (the time) when no good will it do to a soul to believe then." because the the potent signs of the impending doom would be clear as day: “In the day when one of the signs from thy Lord cometh, then their having faith will not benefit them nor the faithful will benfit if they had not already earned good deeds, Say: You wait! We (too) are waiting.” [Ref: Bukhari, B60, H160] - [3] “Hasten in performing these good deeds (before these) six things (happen): (the appearance) of tribe Dajjal, the smoke, the beast of the earth, the rising of the sun from the west, the general turmoil (leading to large-scale massacre) and death of masses and individuals.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H7040] - [4] Accepting appearance of Dajjal and Prophet Isa (alayhis salam) as sign of closing of gate of repentance means that gate of repentance would be closed with their arrival. Hence any deed done thereafter would not benefit and it will end the possibility of spread of Islam but this would contradict the ahadith which stipulate Hadhrat Isa (alayhis salam) will fight for the cause of Islam. And he will abolish Jaziya (i.e. a tax for non-muslims) which means he will abrogate the traditional practice of offering to non-Muslims; Islam or Jaziya and replace it with; Islam or death. Refusal to accept Islam will mean certain death and only acceptance of Islam would save a non-Muslims life. Now if the gate of repentance was closed with appearnce of Dajjal, even before the arrival of Hadhrat Isa (alayhis salam) then offer of acceptance of Islam would be meaningless. Note: I have found it extremely difficult to reconcile these ahadith with each other. So it would be help if someone can shed some light on the issue. Despite the difficulties a harmonised account is presented. If I have written anything which challenges established scholarship of Ahle Sunnat of past or present, please fallow the guidance of those Ulamah on this issue. Allah knows best. - [5] In interpretation of: “But it will surely come to them suddenly while they perceive not.” [Ref: 29:53] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) foretold the swiftness of the destruction preceeding day of judgement and the daily activities of people: “And the Hour will be established while two men spreading a garment in front of them but they will not be able to sell it, nor fold it up; and the Hour will be established when a man has milked his she-camel and has taken away the milk but he will not be able to drink it; and the Hour will be established before a man repairing a tank (for his livestock) is able to water (his animals) in it; and the Hour will be established when a person has raised a morsel (of food) to his mouth but will not be able to eat it." [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H237] This indicates that people of earth will be engaged in their daily activities and will have no knowledge of impending nor will they percieve the coming of doom as well as of the swiftness of the destruction that will overtake the people. - [6] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: "Will you relieve me from Dhi-al-Khalasa? " Dhi-al-Khalasa was an idol which the people used to worship and it was (also) called Al-Ka'ba al Yamaniyya.” Hadhrat Jarir replied: "O Allah's Apostle I am a man who can't sit firm on horses." So he stroked my chest (with his hand) and said, "O Allah! Make him firm and make him a guiding and well-guided man." So I went out with fifty (men) from my tribe of Ahrnas ... and came to Dhi-al-Khalasa and burnt it, ...” then he came back to Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) and informed him of success in burning the idol: "O Allah's Apostle! I have not come to you till I left it like a camel with a skin disease." Upon hearing the news: “The Prophet then invoked good upon Ahmas and their cavalry.” [Ref: Bukhari, B75, H345] - [7] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: "If Allah wants to do a favor to somebody, He bestows on him, the gift of understanding the Quran and Sunna. I am but a distributor, and Allah is the Giver. The state of this nation will remain good till the Hour is established, or till Allah's Order comes." [Ref: Bukhari, B92, H415] The coming Order would be of blowing of wind: “Then Allah would send cold wind from the side of Syria that none would survive upon the earth having a speck of good in him or faith in him but he would die, so much so that even if some amongst you were to enter the innermost part of the mountain, this wind would reach that place also and that would cause his death.” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] After which the state of Ummah would change from good to bad: “Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the charactertistics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil.” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] in another hadith Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “... Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and ...” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] - [8] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states that rich people of the cities disbelieve in the Prophets and the message they brought: “And We did not send a warner to a township but those who were given the worldly wealth and luxuries among them said: "We believe not in the (Message) with which you have been sent." [Ref: 34:34] And the hadith states that the rich people would worship idols and reject the religion of Islam after the blowing of wind. - [9] It is practice of Ahlus Sunnah especially those who are inclined toward Sufi tariqa (i.e. way, path, method) of self purification, rectification; they remember Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) by reciting continously: ' La ilaha il-lallah.' and then in the finale stage the zikr (i.e. remeberance) of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) is purely with continous repeating of : Allah, Allah, Allah. In this context the saying of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam): "The Hour will not come until no-one on earth says, 'Allah, Allah'." could also mean that there will be no Zikr of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) because the Muslims as well as the Ahle Sunnat would have died after the blowing of gentle breeze. - [10] “And Our punishment cannot be warded off from the people who are Mujrimun (i.e. criminals, sinners, disbelievers, polytheists).” [Ref: 12:110] - [11] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) stated in presence of: “... about forty men, were with the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) in a camp when he said: Aren't you pleased that they should constitute one-fourth of the inhabitants of Paradise? He (the narrator) said: Yes. He (the Holy Prophet) again said: Aren't you pleased that you should constitute one-third of the inhabitants of Paradise? They said: Yes. Upon this he again said: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, I hope that you would constitute one-half of the inhabitants of Paradise and the reason is that no one would be admitted into Paradise but a believer and you are no more among the polytheists than as a white hair on the skin of a black ox or a black hair on the skin of a red ox.” [Ref: Muslim, B1, H428] This hadith makes it clear that Mushrikeen were majority in the time of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) and will remain overwhelming majority till the destruction of inhabitants of earth is carried out: And most of them believe in Allah except that they attribute partners unto Him.” [Ref: 12:106] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) invites to examine the pre-Islamic era and declares: "Say: "Travel in the land and see what was the end of those before (you)! Most of them were Mushrikun.! " [Ref: 30:42] So in pre-Islamic era and post Islamic era the majority was, majority will be of Mushrikeen by the ratio mentioned by Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam). - [12] According to the primary historical context of the verse: “And most of them believe in Allah except that they attribute partners unto Him.” [Ref: 12:106] The verse means; most of the inhabitants of Arabian peninsula at the time of revelation of this verse were polytheists who believed in Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) as their God but attributed partners to Him. But this verse is not specific about a region or group of people. It is general therefore as long as conditions of the verse is fullfilled it can be applied to any region, any group of people, or even entire people of earth. - [13] Allah knows best about the actual reality of the belives of people. Readers are not obligated to believe in any aspect of this assumption and it would not effect negatively upon their aqeedah if one doesn't believe so. The fundamental belief which must be confirmed to be a Muslim is; the coming of judgement day and all its desruction will be inflicted upon disbelievers. - [14] “And (remember) the Day We shall cause the mountains to pass away (like clouds of dust), and you will see the earth as a levelled plain, and [after the second trumpet blows] we shall gather them all together so as to leave not one of them behind.” [Ref: 18:47] - [15] Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) explained; Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will send a rain which will cause the dead people to grow out of earth as vegetation grows:“Then the trumpet would be blown and no one would hear that but he would bend his neck to one side and raise it from the other side (i.e. trying to hear the sound) and the first one to hear that trumpet would be the person who would be busy in setting right the tank meant for providing water to the camels. He would swoon and the other people would also swoon, then Allah would send or He would cause to send rain which would be like dew and there would grow out of it the bodies of the people. Then the second trumpet would be blown and they would stand up and begin to look (around). Then it would be said: O people, go to your Lord, and make them stand there. And they would be questioned. Then it would be said: Bring out a group (out of them) for the Hell-Fire. And then it would be asked: How much? It would be said: Nine hundred and ninty-nine out of one thousand for the Hell-Fire and that would be the day which would make the children old because of its terror and that would be the day about which it has been said:" On the day when the shank would be uncovered.” [Ref: Muslim, Book 41, Hadith 7023] - [16] The explosion of unimaginably dense matter which resulted in the universe and its continous expansion is called the Big Bang theory. The scientist community now believes in theory contraction of the universe to the point of starting. (i.e. Big Crunch). This theory states if the expansion of universe does not exceed the escape velocity then the combined gravitational attraction of all matter within the universe will cause it to contract to the point where it started and then the Big Bang will repeat. This theory accords with this teaching of Quranic verse, Allah knows better. - [17] The growing of bodies from earth after the rain is explained in the verse: “He brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living. And He revives the earth after its death. And thus shall you be brought out (resurrected).” [Ref: 30:19] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states He brings out the living from the dead and in the same way Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will bring the dead humans beings to life for judgement day. The question is how does Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) achieve this feet: “... in the rain which Allah Sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; ... (Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise.” [Ref: 2:164] Another verse states: “Verily! It is Allah Who causes the seed-grain and the fruit-stone (like date-stone) to split and sprout. He brings forth the living from the dead, and it is He Who brings forth the dead from the living. Such is Allah, then how are you deluded away from the truth?” [Ref: 6:95] This establishes Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) brings out the living from dead via seeds and rain water. This is affirmed in another verse of the Quran:“It is He Who sends the winds like heralds of glad tidings, going before His mercy: when they have carried the heavy-laden clouds, We drive them to a land that is dead, make rain to descend thereon, and produce every kind of harvest therewith: thus shall We raise up the dead: perchance ye may remember.” [Ref: 7:57] and in verse: “Then contemplate (O man!) the memorials of Allah's Mercy! How He gives life to the earth after its death: verily the same will give life to the men who are dead: for He has power over all things.” [Ref: 30:50] In conclusion just as vegetation grows out of dead earth the mankind will be ressurected in similar fashion.

  11. Salam alayqum wr wb bot khoob you guys are doing a excellent job at the site. I would like to see you guys write proper Urdu articles on aqaid of Ahle Sunnat.
  12. Introduction: The focus would be to refute the Wahhabi methodology of determining Shirk and exclusivity with arguments which have not been employed in the other writtings. And allow the Wahhabiyyah to take the stab at the methodology of Ahle Sunnat with their worn out arguments and then refute them. Wahhabi Principle Of Determining Shirk & Exclusivity. To determine Shirk of attributes Wahhabi's also use the first part of Ahle Sunnat's principle Shirk: 'A exclusive attribute of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) attributed to a creation is Shirk ...” but have added a exceptive clause of their own: “... except what is affirmed for a creation in Qur’an or Hadith.' and to determine which attribute is exclusive Wahhabi's knowingly or unknowingly employ the fallowing principle: 'Every attribute not substantiated for a creation in Qur’an or Ahadith but substantiated for Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) is exclusive attribute of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala).' Ahle Sunnat's Principles Of Determining Shirk & Exclusivity. Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat employ the principle: 'A exclusive attribute of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) attributed to a creation is Shirk.' to determine Shirk of attributes. And to determine exclusivity Ahle Sunnat employ fallowing principle: 'Every attribute of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) in meaning of; zaati (i.e. personnel), qadeemi (i.e. eternal), ghair izni (i.e. requiring no permission), qulli (i.e. absolute), la mahdood (i.e. unlimited), ghair-makhlooq (i.e. uncreated), and haqiqi (i.e. intrinsic) is exclusive attribute of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala).' Note to warrant Shirk it is not essential that all of these concepts are applied to a attribute but if one or more of these concepts are assigned to any attribute of creation; Shirk of attributes will be warranted. Creation of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) possesses all of their attributes, qualities in meaning of; granted (i.e. atahi) limited (i.e. muntahi), ephemeral (i.e. zimni), bi'izni (i.e. requiring permission), baaz (i.e. partial), makhalooqi (i.e. created), majazi (i.e. extrinsic) and if any of attribute of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) is understood in meaning of mentioned then Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has been made like creation of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) which is kuffr because nothing is like Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala). Allah (subhanhu wa ta'ala) And Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) Are Rauf ur-Raheem. Wahhabis generally would be aware that Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has stated in Quran that He is Rauf and Raheem: “Or that He may not call them to account by a process of slow wastage - for your Lord is rauf' ur'raheem (i.e. most kind most merciful).” [Ref: 16:47] “Were it not for the grace and mercy of Allah on you, and that Allah is rauf ur'raheem (ye would be ruined indeed).” [Ref: 24:20] but most of them will not be familiar with Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) being declared as rauf ur-raheem: “Now hath come unto you an Messenger from amongst yourselves: it grieves him that ye should perish: ardently anxious is he over you: to the Believers is he rauf ur'raheem (i.e. most kind and most merciful)”. [Ref: 9:128] And when such ignorant Wahhabi hears the use of these two words for beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) he/she will immediately conclude major Shirk (i.e. Shirk of attributes) has occurred. The knowledgeable Wahhabi, the book worm type, would be familiar with the fact; Rauf and Raheem are two qualities of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) which Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has mentioned in Quran. As a result he/she will not reach the verdict of Shirk and nor would make the mistake of takfir; which the ignorant Wahhabi would be make. Dialogue With A Imaginary Traditional Wahhabi. If a traditional-Wahhabi student of knowledge is questioned about the beliefe of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) being Rauf ur-Raheem and why its not Shirk? The knowledgeable Wahhabi would say: this attribute is not exclusive to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and the evidence proves so. Shirk of attribute occurs when a exclusive, unique, attribute of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is granted to a creation, hence Prophet's (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) being Rauf, Raheem is not Shirk. I would then question; can a attribute which is established with evidence for creation of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) be Shirk? The Wahhabi answer according to his knowledge of principle of determining exclusivity and definition of Shirk would be; no. To establish the error on the Wahhabi it would be prudent to question; what if a person believes Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) is Rauf, Raheem in meaning of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) possessing these attributes by his own self (i.e. Zaati) as well as absolute (i.e. Qulli) in comparision to Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala)? The Wahhabi will reply in affirmative; yes, then the attributes have been polluted with polytheistic creed. Once the Wahhabi has conceded that if such meanings assigned to Prophet's (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) being Rauf, Raheem are polytheistic, then it would be best to have confirm it with question: So you are saying if a person believes Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) is Rauf, Raheem by his ownself not attribute granted to him by Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and Rauf, Raheem without limit then such a person is guilty of Shirk? Wahhabi should affirm it and if not; question again with same question until the desired answer realised then ask: What were the two polluting beliefes on the basis of which Rauf, Raheem were judged as Shirk? If the disscussion is fallowed and the context remembered then the reply will be: Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) possesses these attributes by his own self and without limit. Here is the key question: Would you agree with the conclusion that exclusiveness of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) being Rauf, Raheem is in meaning of Zaati (i.e. Personel) and Qulli (i.e. Absolute)? Reply should be affirmative but question further: Even when a attribute is established with evidence it can be Shirk? The reply again will be in affirmative and there is no need to continue the dialouge. This establishes error in Wahhabi understanding of principles of determining Shirk because it states; a attribute which is established for a creation in Quran and Hadith cannot warrant Shirk. Yet Shirk of attributes has been established for a attribute which is established with evidence of Quran. It also points to error of principle which determines exclusivity of a attribute for Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala); exclusive attributes are which Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has not shared with his creation. Yet exclusivity has been established for a attribute which is shared by Allah (subhanahu wa ta'aa). Apart from highlighting the errors in Wahhabi principles this dialogue also establishes the actual conceptual pollutions which warrant Shirk of attributes. The Wahhabi In Me Discusses With The Sunni In Me. Wme: You believe the that all the attributes of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) belong to category of Zaati, Qulli, La-mahdood, and Ghair-makhlooq? Sme: Yes I do! Wme: Your these concepts are innovations for which there is no clear, unambigous evidence in Quran or Sunnah. Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) stated every newly invented matter is innovation, all innovations are misguidance. Sme: I Indeed every innovation of a particular kind is misguidance so where is the explicit, unambigous evidence from Quran and Sunnah for your innovative principles of determining Shirk and exclusivity? Wme: Well according to your these principles; granted (i.e. atahi) limited (i.e. muntahi), partial (i.e. baaz) the Mushrikeen will not be Mushrik because they believed Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) granted them the right of intercession and the idols were dependant, under the control of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala). Sme: It is true that Mushrikeen believed their idols to be their intercessors with Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) this is insinuated by the rehotorical question: “Have they taken (others) besides Allah as intercessors? Say: "Even if they have power over nothing whatever and have no intelligence?" [Ref: 39:43] and in another verse Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) quotes the beliefe of Mushrikeen: “And they worship besides Allah things that harm them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allah." [Ref: 10:18] Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) states: “No intercessor except after His Leave. That is Allah, your Lord; so worship Him (Alone). Then, will you not remember?” [Ref: 10:3]“None shall have the power of intercession, but such a one as has received permission (or promise) from the Most Gracious (Allah).” [Ref: 19:87] and in another verse same is affirmed: “On that day no intercession shall avail, except the one for whom the Most Gracious (Allah) has given permission and whose word is acceptable to Him.” [Ref: 20:109] Lets suppose the Mushrikeen did believe their idols were intercessors in meaning of atahi, muntahi and baaz compared to Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala). Then what meaning do you believe in intercession of those who will be granted permission by Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala)? If you believe in intercession of those whom Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will grant the right to intercede in meanings of; personel, unlimited, unrestricted, uncreated, eternal, intrinsic you commit major Shirk and if you negate their intercession in meaning of; granted, limited, restricted, created, ephemeral, you indirectly negated their being creation. Wme: Well, I have not mentioned anything about those whom Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) granted the permission of intercession. My argument was according to principles of … Mushrikeen would not be guilty of Shirk because they too believed in their idols to possess the right of intercession because Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) granted them the right of intercession. Therefore they will not be guilty of Shirk according to your principles and this proves fault in your methodology. Sme: I have established the right of intercession for some created beings of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) in meaning of limited, restricted, created, and granted. Hence there is no fault in these principles of Shirk rather the fault is in your understanding what the Shirk of Mushrikeen was. In your creed their Shirk was not taking a idol as god with Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) but Shirk is taking the idol as intercessor with Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala). And in reality Shirk of Mushrikeen was that they took their idol as gods. Taking these idols as intercessors or believing these idols have been granted, limited, restricted, created, right of intercession has nothing to do with them being declared as Mushrikeen. Rather this belief of idols being intercessors or having the right of intercession was kuffria innovation for which the Mushrikeen have had no authority nor they had authority to elevate creation to level of gods. Conclusion: As Muslims we believe Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) is Rauf, Raheem, in meaning of; granted (i.e. atahi) limited (i.e. muntahi), ephemeral (i.e. zimni), bi'izni (i.e. requiring permission), baaz (i.e. partial), makhalooqi (i.e. created), majazi (i.e. extrinsic). Therefore we are protected from shirk even though the attributes of Rauf, Raheem are confirmed for Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Hence exclusivity of a attribute for Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is not in meaning of 'Relative Likeness' but exclusivity of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is in meaning of 'Absolute Likeness' and if any attribute is affirmed for a creation as well as Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in meaning of 'Absolute Likeness' then it is shirk. The actual uniqueness of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) in posessing a attribute is in meaning of; zaati (i.e. personnel), qadeemi (i.e. eternal), ghair izni (i.e. requiring no permission), qulli (i.e. Absolute), ghair-muntahi, la mahdood (i.e. unlimited), ghair-makhlooq (i.e. uncreated), haqiqi (i.e. intrinsic) and once anyone of these meanings is assigned to a creations attribute then shirk of attributes is warranted. Note that the mentioned were assigned to attributes of Rauf, Raheem, which are established with Quranic evidence for Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam), yet these attributes were determined to be Shirk. This strenthens, establishes the argument of Ahle Sunnat; exclusivity of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in possessing the attributes is in meaning of; zaati (i.e. personnel), qadeemi (i.e. eternal), ghair izni (i.e. requiring no permission), qulli (i.e. Absolute), la mahdood (i.e. unlimited), ghair-makhlooq (i.e. uncreated), haqiqi (i.e. intrinsic) not in mere similarity of words used for Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and for his creations.

  14. Introduction: The Wahhabiyyah believe Muslim Ummah of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) has already fallen into major Shirk by taking the dead as gods and by worshipping them.[1] When evidence is established against them from ahadith of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) that Muslim Ummah of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) will not worship idols or any other object until after blowing of the fragrant musky wind. Which will take the life of every believer; after this Shirk will spread in kafir Arab Ummah of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam). They argue Muslim Ummah of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) will be guilty of major Shirk before the blowing of musky wind.[2] Wind Will Take The Life Of Every Muslim: When Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza.” Hadhrat Aysha (radiallah ta'ala ana) after quoting the verse: "He it is Who has sent His Messenger with right guidance, and true religion so that He may cause it to prevail upon all religions, though the polytheists are averse (to it)" [Ref: 9:33] stated: “... it implies that is going to be fulfilled.” In order to explain to her Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) told her that after fullfilment of Allah's (subhanahu wa ta'ala) promised in the Quran: “Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die and only those would survive who would have no goodness in them." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] in another hadith it is recorded: “Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the charactertistics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil.” [Ref: Muslim B41, H 7023] “... and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] yet in another hadith records the wind will take the life of every Muslim:“... and at that time Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] The remaining people will be Kafirs because all the believers will die with the blowing of wind and it will be this non-believing Ummah which will revert back to idolatory under the guidance of Shaytaan. Shaytan will come to the Kafirs: “... in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols ...” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H 7023] “And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] Rasulallah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “... and the Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my Ummah attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my Ummah worship idols.” [Ref: Abu Dawood, B30, H4239] in another hadith he explicitly stated about worship of specific idols; Lat and Uzza: “The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] In another hadith Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) mentioned a particular tribe worshipping a particular idol: “... the women of the tribe of Daus would be seen going round Dhi al-Khalasa (for worship) and ..." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6944] and their idoltory would be in spite of of the fact that: “... they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives.” [Ref: Muslim B41, H 7023] “Then only the worst of men will remain to be overwhelmed by the Hour.” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4721] and as a result: “Then the trumpet would be blown and no one would hear that but he would bend his neck to one side (i.e. die) ...” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] Satan Worship Only After Blowing Of Wind: “Behold, he said to his father: "O my father! why worship that which heareth not and seeth not, and can profit thee nothing?” [Ref: 19:42] Question is what did the Ummah of Ibrahim (alayhis salam) as well as Azhar worshipped: "Lo! Abraham said to his father Azar: "Takest thou idols for gods? For I see thee and thy people in manifest error." [Ref: 6:74] Its established the Mushrikeen worshipped the idols which Ibrahim (alayhis salam) likened to worship of Satan: "O my father! Worship not Satan: for Satan is a rebel against Ar'Rahman (i.e. Allah the most Gracious).” [Ref: 19:44] And in another verse worship of idol godesses as been termed worship of Satan: “(The Mushrikeen) leaving Him call but upon (i.e. yad'una) godesses: They call but upon satan the persistent rebel!” [Ref: 4:117] Conclusion is that when Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) in Quran says Satan worship it means Idol worship. Now pay attention to words of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam): "Jabir reported: I heard Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship (him) in the peninsula of Arabia, but he (is hopeful) that he would sow the seed of dissension amongst them." [Ref: Muslim, B39, H6752] In the Quranic context of; Idol worship being Satan worship, or other way round; Satan worship being Idol worship. Therefore the statement of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) narrated in the hadith: "... the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship (him) in the peninsula of Arabia, ..." [Ref: Muslim, B39, H6752] means: "... the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship Satan (i.e. Idols) in the peninsula of Arabia, …" Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) completely negated the possibility of Idol worship taking place Arabian peninsula but there are ahadith which indicate that Idol worship will take place. So we harmonize the both set of ahadith and make takhsees on the basis of evidence available. Therefore the statement of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) means; in Arabian peninsula there will be no idol worship until all the believers die and this is explained by Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) in a hadith: "A'isha reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: "The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza (in Arabian peninsula). I said: Allah's Messenger, I think when Allah has revealed this verse: "He it is Who has sent His Messenger with right guidance, and true religion, so that He may cause it to prevail upon all religions, though the polytheists are averse (to it)", it implies that is going to be fulfilled. Thereupon he (Allah's Apostle) said: It would happen as Allah would like. Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in him would die and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them. And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] in another hadith it is stated that every Muslim will die after blowing of the wind: “... and at that time Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] After the sweet, fragrant, musky, soothing, pleasant, gentle wind blows it will take the life of all the Muslims leaving behind secularist kuffar. They the surviving kafirs will not revert to idol worship until shaytan will go to them: “... in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols ...” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H 7023]they will do as Shaytan will ask of them and then the prophesy of: “... and the Last Hour will not come before the [Kafir] tribes of my Ummah attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my Ummah worship idols.” [Ref: Abu Dawood, B30, H4239] would be fullfilled. Enter The Young Ones & The Foolish Ones: Some heretics in their eagerness to substantiate the possibility of some eliments of Ummah of RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) falling into Shirk and to defend the unjustified charge of Shirk levelled by Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab against Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat argue; the cold musky gentle wind has already blown in time past. They fail to comprehend that if the wind has already blown in time past predating Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab's birth then all who were left after the blowing the wind and all those will be born thereafter till the blowing of the trumpet are as described by Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam); without any goodness, they will not encourage or appreciate good nor censor evil, they would be careless as birds with characteristics of beasts and last but not least the remanants would be kafirs. And this argument does not only establish the kuffr Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat but also of Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab the Khariji, his Khariji takfiri horde and of its Khariji offshoots. Therefore how can it be sanely argued that Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab was encouraging good of Tawheed, forbidding evil of Shirk and reviving the pure teaching of Islam when he himself and the entire Ummah of Muslims are Kafirs! And then no belief will establish the Islam of people who will survive the blowing of musky wind because Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) stated; people would revert to beliefe of their forefathers: “Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in him would die and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them. And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] and in another hadith he said the wind will take the life of all Muslims: “... and at that time Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits and would take the life of every Muslim and ...” Then went on to say the day of judgement will be established on the remaining Kafirs who will cohibit likes donkeys in middle of road: “... and the Last Hour would come to them.” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] Hence natural conclusion is that even if one was to believe in Islam of Wahhabis he will not be Muslim[3] because Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said all Muslims will die thereafter and illogical conclusion number two would be that despite Wahhabis believing in Tawheed and Islam of Wahhabiyyah they like rest of the Arabs are Mushrikeen and are worshippers of Alat, Uzza, Dhi Al Khalasa. This argument of wind blowing before birth of Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab actually open's the gate for many inconsistancies within established tradition of Islam which even the Wahhabis do not question. And its error is established from the explicit contents of ahadith as well as observed fact that some Ummah of RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) is holding to principle of encouraging the good and forbidding the evil.[4] Also it goes against the established beliefe of Imam Mahdi, return of Isa (alayhis salam) and Jihad of Muslims against the Yahood because blowing of wind establishes only existance of non-believers on earth till the trumpet is blown. And neither Isa (alayhis salam) nor Imam Mahdi, nor the Muslim army that will accompany them are upon kuffr in anyones belief. Conclusion: Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) explained that after the blowing of the wind which will take the life of every Muslim then the non-Muslim Arabs who will survive will associate the idols of Lat, Uzza and Dhi Al Khalasa with Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) then worship them. It will upon these people the destruction preceding day of judgement will be established. Wama alayna ilal balaghul mubeen. Muhammed Ali Razavi Footnotes: [1] In reality their charge of Ahle Sunnat being guilty of major Shirk is result of Khariji methodology. The Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat do not believe the AwliyahAllah are gods nor we worship them nor we teach this polytheism. [2] Suppose the beliefe of Wahhabiyyah; some eliments of Ummah can and will fall into Shirk before blowing of the wind is established with evidence, even then it will only establish the possibility of Shirk but it will not establish the charge of Ahle Sunnat being guilty of major Shirk. [ 3] The result of foolishness of the young ones is truly foolish because if the argument of wind blowing predating Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab is accepted then it boils down to gate of repentance being closed. And this is not something which Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) reported to take place before the ten major signs. Nor there is mention of gate of repentance being closed then being opened and then finally being closed for the finale time. [4] Gradual westernisation is beginning to pollute the minds of Muslims with ideas such as; live and let live, freedom of choice and individualism. As a result of these concepts taking root amongst the Ummah those who will forbid evil will be told; live and let live, I have freedom of choice. Eventually those with knowledge to censor munkir will be silenced by secularist media and goverments Therefore they will practice deen privately, individually. With absence of people forbidding evil, the munkir will spread to such an extant that there will be very few people left to encourage good and the wind will blow and take their lives leaving secularist Kafirs behind to engage in munkir in absolute freedom.
  15. Here is the lattest article it quotes a explicit hadith in which it is stated after the blowing of wind all the muslims will die: http://www.islamimehfil.com/topic/21032-believing-arab-or-non-beleiving-arab-which-ummah-will-worship-idols/ Mahirbani ker kay aap yeh link un ko pesh keren aur challenge deh ker kahen kay is ka radd ker dekhahen.

Khadam nay sabat keeya kay Yeh ahadith Arab kaffiroon kay baray meh hen, Arab Kaffir mushrik ho jain gay, Is hadith ka misdaq musalman nahin ho saktay. aur yeh be sabat ker deeya heh kay meri ummat kay ilfaz say ummat e muslima nahin balkay woh ummat heh jis kee taraf behja gaya.
  16. Introduction. The heretical Wahhabiyyah believe some believing tribes of Ummah of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) would be guilty of worshipping idols before the blowing of musky wind. Establishing this heretical beliefe is fundamental for them because it will justify their charge of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat being people of major Shirk; idolatry. In opposition to heretics the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat holds to the beliefe that believing Ummah of RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) will not fall into major Shirk but the non-believing Arabian Ummah will fall into major Shirk after blowing of musky fragrant wind in its entirity. And it will be upon the polytheists the tremendous punishment, the anahilation, destruction preceeding the day of judgement will be established. Devil's Reasoning & Logic. The Wahhabiyyah argue on the basis of hadith: “... When the sword is used among my Ummah, it will not be withdrawn from them till the Day of Resurrection, and the Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my Ummah attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my Ummah worship idols. There will be among my Ummah thirty great liars each of them assertinf that he is (Allah's) prophet, whereas I am the Seal of the Prophets after whom (me) there will be no prophet; ...." [Ref: Dawood, B30, H4239] that believing Ummah of RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) will commit major Shirk by believing and worshipping idols. Their argument is simple and without considering the other evidence available on this issue; Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “... and the Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my Ummah[1] attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my people worship idols.” therefore it means believing Ummah of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) will be guilty of major Shirk. A Methodological Way Forward. In order to soundly reffute the heretical beliefe it is important to determine if the statement:“... and the Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my people attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my Ummah worship idols.” reffers to the Muslim Arabs or Kafir Arabs and out of the two who will attach themselves to polytheists and worship idol-gods. Then hypothetically conceed that the hadith refers to Muslims and then explain how this would not help the cause of Wahhabiyyah. “... Tribes Of My Ummah ...” Means: Tribes of My Arab Ummah. RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “... and the Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my Ummah attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my people worship idols.” [Ref: Abu Dawood, B30, H4239] in another hadith he explicitly stated about worship of specific idols; Lat and Uzza which were the idol-gods of polytheists of Arabia: “The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] In another hadith Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) mentioned a particular Arab tribe worshipping a particular idol: “... the women of the tribe of Daus would be seen going round Dhi al-Khalasa (for worship) and ..." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6944] “... Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established till the buttocks of the women of the tribe of Daus move while going round Dhi-al-Khalasa." Dhi-al-Khalasa was the idol of the Daus tribe which they used to worship in the Pre Islamic Period of ignorance. [Ref: Bukhari, B88, H232] and another hadith explicitly declares Dhi al Khalasa as the idol: “Dhi-al-Khalasa was an idol which the people used to worship and it was (also) called Al-Ka'ba al Yamaniyya.” [Ref: Bukhari, B75, H345] Hence it is established that the words of hadith: “... and the Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my people attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my Ummah worship idols.” [Ref: Dawood, B30, H4239] are about Arabian tribes specificly. “... Tribes Of My Ummah ...” Means: Tribes Of My Arab Kafir Ummah. Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza.” Upon hearing which Hadhrat Aysha (radiallah ta'ala anha) quoted the verse: "He it is Who has sent His Messenger with right guidance, and true religion so that He may cause it to prevail upon all religions, though the polytheists are averse (to it)"[2] [Ref: 9:33] and then proceeded to state: “... it implies that is going to be fulfilled.” To which Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) replied: “It would happen as Allah would like.” Then Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) went on to explain how the tribes of his Ummah will fall into Shirk: “Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die ...” and after which: “... only those would survive who would have no goodness in them." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] another describes the remaining Arabs: “Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the charactertistics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil.”[3] [Ref: Muslim B41, H 7023] And while Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) was detailing the signs of day of judgement he foretold: “And the milch camel would give such (a large quantity of) milk that the whole tribe would be able to drink out of that and the milch sheep would give so much milk that the whole family would be able to drink out of that and at that time Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.” [Ref: Muslim, B041, H7015] After the death of believers Shaytaan will come to the kafir Arabs: “... in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols ...” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H 7023] at this juncture these kafir Arabs at the request of Shaytan: “... would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] and their idoltory would be in spite of of the fact that: “... they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives.” [Ref: Muslim B41, H 7023] “Then only the worst of men will remain to be overwhelmed by the Hour.” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4721] and as a result of kuffr all over the Arabian peninsula: “... the trumpet would be blown and no one would hear that but he would bend his neck to one side (i.e. die) ...” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] “... Tribes Of My Ummah ...” Suppose It Means: Tribes Of My Arab Muslim Ummah. For the sake of argument lets ignore all the evidence and agree with Wahhabiyyah that portion of Muslim Ummah of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) will worship the idols before the blowing of gentle musky wind. Then question is what do the Wahhabiyyah achieve from this generous but heretical concession? Even with this concession only some Muslim tribes of Arabian peninsula will be guilty of worshipping idols Uzza, Lat, and Dhi-al-Khalasa. How can the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat be justly accused of worshipping graves, saints, on the basis of this evidence which was specificly about some Arab tribes? RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) has foretold about the Ummah; "... and by Allah, I am not afraid that you will worship others besides Allah after me, ..." [Ref: Bukhari, B76, H590] Those tribes of his Muslim Ummah who will be guilty of major Shirk, meaning, guilty of believing idols to be gods and being guilty of worshiping Lat, Uzza, Dhi Al Khalasa, Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) has already foretold about them. Prophet's (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) silence about the remaining Muslim Ummah is evidence that it will not fall into major Shirk. Otherwise RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) would have informed that other eliments of Ummah would worship graves and take the AwliyahAllah as gods besides Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) in various regions of earth. Note what was destined to take place Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) has informed and he has informed about the worship of Lat, Uzza, Dhi Al Khalasa returning to Arabia. And what he has not stated will not take place because he made takhsees of his this general statement: "... and by Allah, I am not afraid that you will worship others besides Allah after me, ..." [Ref: Bukhari, B76, H590] by saying Arabian 'Muslims' will worship Lat, Uzza, Dhi Al Khalasa. Absence of evidence from Quran and Hadith about saint worship, grave worship, tree worship, stone worship of Muslims is proof that Ummah is free of it. Conclusion. There is no evidence what so ever that the believing Ummah of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) or believing tribes of Muslims will become Mushrikeen. Rather the evidence of Quran and Hadith is clear on the fact that only after the blowing of musky wind the believing people of Arabian peninsula will die. Those left behind will be Kafirs and to this non-beleiving Ummah the Satan will come and ask them to worship the Idols as a result they will comply. At this point after the blowing of wind the idol worship will return to Arabian peninsula but not before this. Wama alayna ilal balaghul mubeen. Muhammed Ali Razavi Footnotes: - [1] The words “... my Ummah ...” have been used for the false claimants of Prophethood: “There will be among my Ummah thirty great liars each of them assertinf that he is (Allah's) prophet,...” [Ref: Dawood, B30, H4239] The construction of the sentence indicates that even though they will be in reality apostates yet they are mentioned as part of Ummah of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam). Another hadith also reports the similar wording: “... The hour will not come until tribes (i.e. qabail) of my Ummah join the polytheists and worship idols. And in my Ummah there will be thirty liars each of them will claim he is a Prophet. While I am the Seal (i.e. Last) of Prophets. There is no Prophet after me.” [Ref: Tirmadhi, B36, H2226] This establishes that use of; “... my Ummah ...” in the fallowing part of these ahadith: “The hour will not come until tribes of my Ummah join the polytheists and worship idols.” [Ref: Tirmadhi, B36, H2226] “... and the Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my Ummah attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my Ummah worship idols." [Ref: Dawood, B30, H4239] definitively are not for the Muslim Ummah of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) but possibally for non-beleiving Ummah. - [2]“It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion: and enough is Allah for a Witness.” [Ref: 48:28] “It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, that he may proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it).” [Ref: 61:9] - [3] Stages of eman are three, first degree and the best; after seeing evil taking place striving to stop it, second degree the preffered middle course; to speak out against it, third the weakest of eman; to denounce it as evil, reprehensible, and dislike it. Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) described the remaining Arabs will not encourage good nor censor evil and this is proof that the remaining Arabs would become secularist apostates.
  17. I have already written three quaters of material in English. The most important part of the material is already present above in post 15.
  18. As-Salamu alayqum wr wb brother due to your persistant bugging me, about which i was this happy , lol. I have decided to write a article specificly adressing some points which were raised here and establishing the position of the Ahle Sunnat will absolutely clear evidences. Thank you for bugging me you have brought some new ideas to my dormant and inactive minds with which I can establish the position of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat with concrete evidence. Now please just give me few hours and you will have the smackdown on your Wahhabi debater nor the others will be able to reply, insha'allah. The articles will be titled: - Believing Or Non-beleiving, Arab Or Non-Arab, Which Ummah Will Worship Idols? - Major Shirk Will Only Occur After Blowing Of Fragrant Musky Wind. - The Destruction Preceding Day Of Judgement Will Be Established Upon Kafirs & Mushrikeen. Two more articles comming within day or two. Muhammed Ali Razavi
  19. Ap nay agar peri post ko pera hota toh maloom hota kay baaz kee behas nahin heh, keun kay baaz kee takhsees mojood heh. Asal mozoo yeh thah kay hawa kay chalnay say pehlay Shirk hona. Aur hawa kay chalnay say pehlay Shirk hona Ummat e Imani kay leyeh sabat nahin. Magar hawa kay chalnay kay baad Ummat e Arabia ghair muslim bachay gee ... baqi tafseel neechay perh lenh. Part One: This will happen when: “... Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die ...” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] and as a result only: “Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the charactertistics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil.” [Ref: Muslim B41, H 7023] “... and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] then shaytan will come to them: “... in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols ...” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H 7023] “And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] Rasulallah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) said: “... and the Last Hour will not come before the tribes of my people attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my people worship idols.” [Ref: Abu Dawood, B30, H4239] in another hadith he explicitly stated about worship of specific idols; Lat and Uzza: “The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza.” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] In another hadith Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) mentioned a particular tribe worshipping a particular idol: “... the women of the tribe of Daus would be seen going round Dhi al-Khalasa (for worship) and ..." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6944] and their idoltory would be in spite of of the fact that: “... they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives.” [Ref: Muslim B41, H 7023] “Then only the worst of men will remain to be overwhelmed by the Hour.” [Ref: Muslim, B20, H4721] and as a result of spreading of Shirk all over the earth: “Then the trumpet would be blown and no one would hear that but he would bend his neck to one side (i.e. die) ...” [Ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] This establishes that believing Ummah will not revert back to idolatry but after the blowing of musky wind the remaining people will be kaffirs and it will be this non-believing Ummah which will revert back to idolatory under the guidance of shaytaan. Part Two: “Behold, he said to his father: "O my father! why worship that which heareth not and seeth not, and can profit thee nothing?” [Ref: 19:42] Question is what did the Ummah of Ibrahim (alayhis salam) as well as Azhar worshipped: "Lo! Abraham said to his father Azar: "Takest thou idols for gods? For I see thee and thy people in manifest error." [Ref: 6:74] Its established the Mushrikeen worshipped the idols which Ibrahim (alayhis salam) likened to worship of Satan: "O my father! Worship not Satan: for Satan is a rebel against Ar'Rahman (i.e. Allah the most Gracious).” [Ref: 19:44] And in another verse worship of idol godesses as been termed worship of Satan: “(The Mushrikeen) leaving Him call but upon (i.e. yad'una) godesses: They call but upon satan the persistent rebel!” [Ref: 4:117] Conclusion is that when Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) in Quran says Satan worship it means Idol worship. Now pay attention to words of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam): "Jabir reported: I heard Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship (him) in the peninsula of Arabia, but he (is hopeful) that he would sow the seed of dissension amongst them." [Ref: Muslim, B39, H6752] In the Quranic context of; Idol worship being Satan worship, or other way round; Satan worship being Idol worship, the statement of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) narrated in the hadith: "... the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship (him) in the peninsula of Arabia, ..." [Ref: Muslim, B39, H6752] means: "... the Satan has lost all hopes that the worshippers would ever worship Idols in the peninsula of Arabia, ..." Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) completely negated the possibility of Idol worship taking place Arabian peninsula but there are ahadith which indicate that Idol worship will take place. So we harmonize the both set of ahadith and make takhsees on the basis of evidence available. Therefore the statement of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) means; in Arabian peninsula there will be no idol worship until all the believers die and this is explained by Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) in a hadith: "A'isha reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: "The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the worship of Lat and 'Uzza (in Arabian peninsula). I said: Allah's Messenger, I think when Allah has revealed this verse: "He it is Who has sent His Messenger with right guidance, and true religion, so that He may cause it to prevail upon all religions, though the polytheists are averse (to it)", it implies that is going to be fulfilled. Thereupon he (Allah's Apostle) said: It would happen as Allah would like. Then Allah would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him would die and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them. And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers." [Ref: Muslim, B41, H6945] They the surviving kafirs will not revert to idol worship until shaytan will go to them: “... in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols ...” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H 7023]they will do as Shaytan will ask of them and then the prophesy of: “... and the Last Hour will not come before the [Kafir] tribes of my people attach themselves to the polytheists and tribes of my people worship idols.” [Ref: Abu Dawood, B30, H4239] would be fullfilled. Conclusion: There is no evidence what so ever that the believing Ummah of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) or believing tribes of Muslims will become Mushrikeen. Rather the evidence of Quran and Hadith is clear on the fact that only after the blowing of musky wind the believing people of Arabian peninsula will die. Those left behind will be Kafirs and to this non-beleiving Ummah the Satan will come and ask them to worship the Idols as a result they will comply. At this point after the blowing of wind the idol worship will return to Arabian peninsula but not before this.
  20. Introduction: Tawassul (i.e. intermediation) is is defined has supplicating Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) via living/dead intermediary or invoking Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on account of good deeds done, or supplicating to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) mentioning His beautiful names to draw closer to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). There are many types of Tawassul which are supported with evidence from Quran & Ahadith, but in this article I will limit my self to Tawassul of the dead. Tawassul of dead; 1) asking the dead person to invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on your behalf with the belief that they hear, invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) bi'iznillahi ta'ala (i.e. permission of Allah), 2) asking the dead person directly to assist you bi'iznillahi ta'ala has a servant of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) are subject of polemical controversy. Ahlus Sunnah's position on these two disputed form of tawassul is; they are permissible, and to substantiate the permissibility Ulama of Ahle Sunnat present evidences from Qur’an, Sunnah. Where as Wahhabi-Khariji’s consider these practices shirk al Akbar and equate these practices to grave-worship. They also declare anyone who practices these two forms of Tawassul as Mushrik; declaring them to be kaffirs, wajib ul qatal, whose property can be seized and women folk enslaved. In the methodology of Ahle Sunnat if all the evidence from Qur’an and Sunnah which supports these two practices was to be categorized as fabricated, weak, non-existent and the aqeedah of Tawheed was correct of the person practicing Tawassul then these two forms of Tawassul will be considered reprehensible innovations which do not effect negatively the tawheedi aspect of a Muslims aqeedah. Explanation Of Tawheed & Shirk. One who believes that knife cuts, one who believes waters quenches thirst, food satisfies hunger such a person can be Mushrik as well as Muslim. Muslim, because language has evolved. Instead of saying Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is the one who cuts with knife, the cutting is with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), and not with knife, burning is with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and not with fire we attribute the attributes of cutting, burning, to objects which Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) created. In reality the cutting, burning, is on His command. We know this because if it was nature of knife to cut, it would have cut Ismail (alayhis salam), if it was nature of fire to burn it would have burnt Ibrahim (alayhis salam), there inability to bring harm to these two Prophets is proof that cutting, burning are controlled by Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). When the izn for the knife to cut comes to knife, it cuts, then fire burns, then water satisfies thirst, then food fills the stomach, and nourishes, without Allah’s (subhana wa ta'ala) izn, fire can not burn, knife can not cut, water can not quench thirst, and food doesn't nourish, and eye doesn’t see, and hears don’t hear. Mushrik, because one can ascribe to same understand yet attribute this belief to many gods or ascribe this belief for only Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), yet believe there are other gods. Or Mushrik because he does not believe in existence of any god. In this case he would be negating Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) act of creation of universe as well as everything with in it and will be negating every attribute which Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) granted to his creation. From this it becomes apparent that certain creeds can be neutral and only become Shirk when they are coupled with Shirki aqeedah. Tawassul of the dead/living is one such issue, by itself can not be termed as Shirk until the creed of the person who makes tawassul of the dead/living is Shirk, then one who makes tawassul of the dead would be guilty of Shirk of Ibadah. Let me clarify, the point clearly, if one believes that living/dead, can grant son, bi'iznillah, its not Shirk. But if one believes that the living/dead can grant anything without the izn of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), this is Shirk, because all creation is dependent upon Izn of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), and Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is only who requires izn of no one, hence by disbelieving in belief in bi'iznilah, one becomes Mushrik because he has made the living/dead, equal to god, has given that living/dead a attribute, right which only is reserved for Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Aqueduct of Tawheed states, that Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) grants, but he grants through wasail, means, he gave Maryam (alayhis salam) Isa (alayhis salam) as the Son, we if someone was to say, Jibraeel gave Maryam the son, while still holding to the belief that Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in reality grants the son, he is not Mushrik, but if he believes Jibraeel grants the son, without izn of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), without Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) commanding him, and its Jibraeels power to give son and Jibraeel is independent to give son, and does not require izn from Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), he has made Jibraeel (alayhis salam) a god beside Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Explanation One: For Shirk There Are No Exceptions. Shirk has no exceptions, what is Shirk will remain Shirk in all conditions. If one believes in Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) having a son its Shirk because attributing a partner with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is by its nature Shirk. Therefore if one was to attempt to establish for Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) a daughter, mother, wife, we will by default understand this is Shirk, because of very nature of Shirk, and we will entertain no exception to this rule for any type of partner with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). What was Shirk in the time of Adam (alayhis salam) is Shirk now, what was Tawheed in the time of Adam (alayhis salam) is Tawheed now. Tawheed and Shirk do not change and are not subject to exceptions because Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) does not change. We believe the living can hear as well as the dead can hear, yet the transition of this belief between the living and the dead does not make this belief Shirk. Similarly seeking the aid from living with correct Tawheedi aqeedah, and then with the same aqeedah asking the dead for aid can not be termed as Shirk, because the transition between seeking of aid from living to dead is with same Tawheedi aqeedah. To explain it simply Shirk is asking for help from the living or the dead, Kabah, grave, idol, a Prophet or wali and what ever else you can imagine, with the aqeedah that the one you asking for help is partner with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), either in His Zaat or Sifat or A'faal or in one or all aspects of Tawheed. Explanation Two: Tawheedi Aid & Shirki Aid. Supplication, petitioning, beseeching, Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is an act of worship and beseeching, petitioning, supplicating to a deity, a idol, is an act of Ibadah, and 'Shirk fil Ibadah'. Beseeching, petitioning, to a person, with the belief; he is person, human being, Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) created him, and is creation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) like rest of creation, is not Shirk, nor an act of worship. If one beseeches, petitions, ask, requests with the aqeedah that this living or dead, is Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) creation, Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) created him like the rest, is not partner with Allah in His Dhaat, Sifat, Aafaal, but he/she grants with Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) izn, then it is not Shirk. Explanation Three: Sajdah Of Worship & Sajdah Of Respect. Bowing to creation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) with the aqeedah that, this, Adam's form, idol,Kabah, Wali, Ghawth, Qutb, Abdal, Seikh, Ganesh, Seeta, Geeta, Ravan, Hanuman, Jesus, Uzair, Alat, Uz'zaat, Ma'naat are partners in Zaat, or one or more Sifaat, A'faal of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is Shirk Al Akbar specific Shirk of Ibadah, and even if no Sujood was performed, no Raku was performed, no Qayam was performed, still due to the aqeedah Shirk Al Akbar will be warranted. Bowing to Adam (alayhis salam) with the aqeedah, that Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) created him, he is not partner with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in His Zaat, or one or more Sifaat or A'faal but only creation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will not warrant Shirk but means tahzeem, respect, and honoring. If the angles had bowed down with the aqeedah that he is partner with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in His Zaat, or one or more Sifaat or A'faal then the angles would have been guilty of Shirk Al Akbar (i.e. Shirk of Ibadah).[1] Note, this discussion was not to legitimize the Sajdah e Tazeemi (i.e. prostration of respect) to creation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) but to explain the point of aqeedah of Tawheed, and Shirk. Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat forbids Sajdah e Tazeemi to any creation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) due to it being explicitly being declared haram by Messenger (salallahu alayhi was'salam). Explanation Four: Wahhabi Ignorance Of Shirk. Heretics make takfir of Muslims by making qiyaas that the Mushrikeen asked their idol-gods who were human beings of past Ummah's for aid and a person who asks dead Seikh to make dua to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), or asks directly therefore the person asking for assistance from dead Seikh is Mushrik like the Mushrikeen of Makkah. This means they believe in transition of seeking aid from the living to the dead warrants automatic change of Tawheedi aqeedah to Shirki aqeedah, which is absolute none-sense. At the back of this none-nonsensical methodology the rule being employed to arrive at the mentioned conclusion is: 'Help not in control of dead if asked will warrant shirk.'[2] and its established fact that Shirk is warranted only when one profess polytheistic aqeedah. So if one who openly professes: 'La ilaha il'Allah.' and seeks aid from the deceased, in their warped understanding of Shirk the one seeking aid of the dead as gone through transition of professing of 'Shirk Al Akbar' without actually audibly, professing a polytheistic aqeedah.[3] The difference between the aqeedah of a Muslim who makes Tawassul of the dead, and Mushrik is of chalk and cheese. The Mushriks of Makkah seeked aid from the idols because these idols were their gods hence they were Mushrikeen. One who asks the deceased to make dua on his behalf to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) or seeks aid from the deceased directly, does not believe the dead is god, rather believes the dead is means to gain closeness to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), and this difference of aqeedah makes it clear that its not Shirk. Explanation Five: Dead Inability Is Shirk Or Not. Wahhabi-Khariji's say: 'Help not in control of dead if asked will warrant shirk.' Dead’s inability to provide you with what they are asked has nothing to do with 'Shirk Al Akbar', rather is the aqeedah which determines 'Shirk Al Akbar' and with polytheistic creed even if you was to ask the living for anything which they can grant or even if you ask no one still Shirk Al Akbar will be warranted. Shirk means associating a partner with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), it can only be shirk if the dead, and Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) have something in common. Is your Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) dead and can He (subhana wa ta'ala) only help in that state? Yes, on the basis of mafoom al mukhalif one can accuse one who believes in this principle that you believe in dead Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and only dead Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) can help. But this is not methodology of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat we do not infer the opposite until its explicitly professed. Explanation Six: Explicit Negation Required For Kuffr Or Shirk. Abu Huraira (radiallah tallah anh) came to RasoolAllah (sallalahu aalayhi was'salam) and said O messenger of Allah (sallalahu aalayhi was'salam): "I hear many narrations (Hadiths) from you but I forget them." Prophet said, spread your cloth, Prophet grabbed something in air, and emptied his hand in the garment and said to Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala anh): "Take and wrap this sheet over your body." after this Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala anh) states: “I did it and after that I never forgot any thing.”[4] RasoolAllah gave him memory, knowledge of hadith didn’t give him vitamins tablets or tell him go on make dua to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), didn’t say its not in my power this is domain of Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala). Important aspect of this is that if Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala anh) had asked referred his lack of ability to remember the ahadith to RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) with the belief; 'RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) can help remedy the problem without izn of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala.' then this would have been Shirk. But he referred with Tawheedi aqeedah: 'Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) grants the remedy, RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) is only means to receive this mercy of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala).' therefore it is not Shirk. The lesson in this for us is that if one was to affirm that RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) granted the memory to Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala anh) without explicitly stating; 'Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) granted the memory to Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala anh) via Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam)'. Or without explicitly stating; 'Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) granted the memory to Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala anh) with permission of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala).' it would not be Shirk, explicit negation of Tawheed, and affirmation of Shirk is required. And if one who seeks aid from the dead/living without actually affirming Shirk, and without we can not assume that that he has made the dead/living a partner with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) because that’s speculation on ones aqeedah which isn’t permissible unless explicit negation of Tawheed is made in no ambiguous terms. Explanation Seven: Dead Inability To Help Isn't Shirk. Often its said by the Wahhabi-Khariji's: 'Asking ghairullah of things which are to be asked of Allah is shirk.' This statement reflects absolute ignorance of understanding of Shirk. In this instance a question first: Did Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala anh) commit Shirk by referring his inability to RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam)? Is granting sharp memory in domain of ghairullah or Allah (subhana wa ta'ala)? Did RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) commit Shirk by granting perfect memory to Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala)? Asking the living or the dead ghairullah of what is in domain of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has absolutely nothing to do with Shirk Al Akbar till the one asking has polytheistic creed. If Abu Huraira (radiallah ta'ala anh) had polytheistic aqeedah then he would be guilty of Shirk full stop even if he had asked for a glass of water. Beliefs Which Will Warrant Tawassul As Shirk. Part One – A: Asking The Dead To Make Dua To Allah. If one was to ask the dead to invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on his behalf with the belief that the dead has ability to invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) by his own self and not with Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) given qudra (i.e. power) wasail (i.e. means), not bi'iznillahi ta'ala such a person is guilty of 'Shirk Al Akbar'. Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) alone possess Zaati (i.e. personel) attributes, and association of a Zaati attribute to creation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) amounts to Shirk. Also His creation requires His izn (i.e. permission) for everything what they do. And negation of this implies that the dead/living have attribute of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) meaning their actions are not subject to control of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) but they are independent of Him, and only Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is independent, His actions are subject to control of none, He is is doer of as He pleases. Part One – B: Asking The Dead To Make Dua To Allah. If one was to ask the dead to invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on his behalf but his belief about that dead was he/she is able to hear the request of supplication by his/her own self and not bi'iznillahi ta'ala such a person is Mushrik, because the living, the dead, all hear with izn from Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), and their ability of hearing is bestowal of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala); He alone hears by His own self, and without izn of another. Therefore by not believing in izn of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) for that dead’s ability to hear, and by not believing in the fact that the attribute of hearing is bestowal of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), the supplicant makes that dead a 'absolute partner' with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in attribute of hearing, therefore warranting 'Shirk Al Akbar'. Part Two – A: Asking The Dead For Help. If living was to ask the dead to aid him with a glass of water, or a peanut, or by protecting him from harm, with belief; dead was able to hear the request of aid by his/her own self and not bi'iznillahi ta'ala such a person is Mushrik. This is so because the living, the dead, all hear with izn from Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), and their ability of hearing is bestowal of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala);[5] He alone hears by His own self, and without izn of another. Therefore by not believing in izn of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) for that dead’s ability to hear, and by not believing in the fact that the attribute of hearing is bestowal of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), the one seeking aid makes that dead a god besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) due to seeker of aid attributing to the dead attribute of hearing in 'Haqiqi' terms therefore warranting 'Shirk Al Akbar'. Part Two – B: Asking The Dead For Help. If one was to ask the dead to come to his aid or remove his difficulty with the belief that the dead has ability to do this by his own self and without Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) given qudra (i.e. power) wasail (i.e. means), not bi'iznillahi ta'ala such a person is guilty of 'Shirk Al Akbar'. Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) alone possess Zaati (i.e. personel) attributes, and Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) alone is able to help by His Self, by His own Qudra (i.e. Power). Also Ambiyah (i.e. Prophets), Awliya'Allah (i.e. Friends of Allah), Malaika (i.e. angles), Insaan (i.e. human), Jinn, dead, living, and everything else in the universe requires His izn for everything and Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) alone is independent of requiring izn from another. And negation of this implies that the dead/living have attribute of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) meaning their actions are not subject to control of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) but they are independent of Him, and only Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is independent, therefore establishing independence of a creation Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is 'Shirk Al Akbar'. Conclusion: It will be abundantly clear that Tawassul by its very natures is not Shirk but the believes with which is coupled with may decide if a dua is Shirki in nature or not. If one has Shirki beliefs then on account of his asking the dead/living to make dua to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will not make him Mushrik/Muwahid, but the deciding factor is the polytheistic creed which he profess. With his Shirki aqeedah even if he invokes Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) directly he will be Mushrik due to his one or multiple Shirki beliefs. Same rule applies to asking the dead directly to help you. If the aqeedah is Shirki then asking or not asking won't make a difference in being a Mushrik. Note the corner stone of 'Shirk Al Akbar' is polytheistic belief, and when that Shirki corner stone is in your heart tong then asking the dead, living, indirectly or directly, human or Jinn, Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) or angel, nothing will prevent you from being Mushrik. And when Tawheed is firmly established upon the heart, then with correct understanding of Tawheed one can ask the dead, living, directly or indirectly, angle or Jinn, Khaliq or Makhlooq, for a small thing or extra ordinary thing, nothing will make you Mushrik. Wama alayna ilal balaghul mubeen. Muhammed Ali Razvi Footnotes: ======== - [1] I know angles dont commit Shirk, can not commit Shirk, point was to demonstrate, that change of aqeedah, warrants Shirk. - [2] when ever you encounter a Wahabi-Khariji use this principle of theirs ask for explicit, emphetic, unambiguous evidence from Quran, Sunnah which states seeking aid from dead is Shirk. By Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) there is none, this rule is of their own making. - [3] Sahabi killed a person who professed: “There is no god but Allah, ...” issue reached to Prophet (salallahu alayhi was'salam) Sahabi attempted to justify his action, Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) repeatedly asked him: “Did you tear his heart in order to find out whether it had professed or not?” and repeated this question till the Sahabi: “... wished I had embraced Islam that day.” [Ref: Muslim, Book 1, Hadith 176] This proves that one who openly profess a creed should not be judged to be negating it based on personel judgement. And the Wahhabi-Khariji principle automatically assumes the transition of Tawheedi aqeedah to Shirki aqeedah. Therefore this principle of Wahabi is against the Sunnah of beloved Messenger (sallalahau alayhi was'salam) who taught explicit affirmation of a aqeedah is the belief of person who affirms it. - [4] Ref: Sahih Bukhari, Book 3, Hadith 119 - [5] Yes the dead can hear, they can talk, walk, perform prayers one who rejects it is a mubtadi.

Introduction: - Tawassul bil amwat (i.e. intermediation of dead) is of three types. 1) Asking a dead to make dua to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on your behalf. 2) Asking the dead directly to aid you in time of difficulty bi'iznillahi ta'ala. 3) Invoking Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) with mentioning the word bi'haqqi (i.e. right) and then name of Prophet or a Wali'ullah (i.e. bi'haqqi nabiyyi Muhammed, with right of Prophet Muhammed – sallalahu alayhi was'salam). Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammats belief is that these three forms of tawassul are permissible and do not invalidate a Muslims belief in Tawheed of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). In Wahhabi-Khariji sect anyone who practices tawassul bil amwat such a individual is Mushrik. In less technical term it means a Kaffir who associates with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) a partner absolute, a god, a deity. Seriousness Of Takfir & Its Dangers. - Anyone who accuses the majority group: ”... seventy-two of them will go to Hell and one of them will go to Paradise, and it is the majority group (Jama'ah).”[1] the 'Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat' of Shirk has indirectly made takzeeb of beloved Prophet (sallalahu alayahi was'salam). For he has stated about the Muslims: “By Allah! I am not afraid that after me you will worship others besides Allah, but I am afraid that you will start competing for (the pleasures of) this world."[2] in another narration: “... by Allah, I am not afraid concerning you that you would associate anything (with Allah after me) ...”[3] From this it becomes clear that 'Sawad Al Azam' the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat will not be guilty of of worshiping others beside Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) nor they would attribute absolute partners with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in any aspect of Tawheed. Takfir of Muslimeen is serious because Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) has stated that if a believer calls another believer a kaffir one of them is kaffir: "If a man says to his brother, O Kafir (disbeliever)!' Then surely one of them is such (i.e., a Kifir).”[4] Servant has established that Ummah as whole will not be guilty of 'Shirk Al Akbar' nor will the majority group be guilty of Shirk because Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) revealed they will be people of paradise. Therefore the one who makes Takfir of the majority of Muslims has apostatized from deen of Islam, and its essential that they repent. So 'O Wahhabi-Khariji's!' do not ruin your Islam and not be of those about whom Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) stated: Surah Aa'li Imran (3) Verse 86: “How shall Allah Guide those who reject Faith after they accepted it and bore witness that the Messenger was true and that Clear Signs had come unto them? but Allah guides not a people unjust.” Surah Aa'li Imran (3) Verse 90: “But those who reject Faith after they accepted it, and then go on adding to their defiance of Faith,- never will their repentance be accepted; for they are those who have (of set purpose) gone astray.” Surah At'Tawbah (9) Verse 66: “Make ye no excuses: ye have rejected Faith after ye had accepted it. If We pardon some of you, We will punish others amongst you, for that they are in sin.” Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) bore witness that Ummah as whole will not commit Shirk Al Akbar by associating others with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) nor will his Ummah worship others beside Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Hence one who makes Takfir of a Muslim has disbelieved in Messenger of Allah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) which is kuffr. Such a person is dhalim, Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will not guide the dhalimeen nor will their repentance be accepted because they have gone astray – into kuffr, nor will Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) accept their excuses. Way Forward. Its understood that this exhortation in the previous part alone may not be sufficient enough for Wahhabi-Khariji's to hold their tongues from branding Muslims as Mushrikeen, grave-worshipers, kaffirs. Therefore servant will establish with Quranic proofs validity of this practice, and this will insha'allah ta'ala ul aziz satisfy the Wahhabi-Khariji demand of proof[5] and prevent them from making unjustified takfir of Muslims. Insha'allah it will help them to come to understanding that Tawassul Bil Amwat is issue of fiqh when no aspect of Tawheed is negated and is an issue of Fiqh. Therefore if there was no evidence for the validity of this practice it would be at worst a reprehensible innovation and not 'Shirk Al Akbar'. Evidence Of Tawassul Bil Amwat. Part Two - Surah Al Baqarah (2) Verse 89: - Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states about Jews: Surah Al Baqarah (2) Verse 89: “And when there comes to them a Book from Allah, confirming what is with them,- although from of old they had prayed for victory against those without Faith,- when there comes to them that which they (should) have recognized, they refuse to believe in it but the curse of Allah is on those without Faith.” The verse of Quran is little vague hence commentaries to clarify the subject of verse: Tafsir Al Jalalayn: When there came to them a Book from God, confirming what was with them, in the Torah, that is the Qur’ān — and they formerly, before it came, prayed for victory, for assistance, over the disbelievers, saying: ‘God, give us assistance against them through the Prophet that shall be sent at the end of time’; but when there came to them what they recognized, as the truth, that is, the mission of the Prophet, they disbelieved in it, out of envy and for fear of losing leadership (the response to the first lammā particle is indicated by the response to the second one); and the curse of God is on the disbelievers. Tafsir Ibn Abbas: (“And when there cometh unto them a Scripture from Allah, confirming that in their possession”) which accords with that which is in their possession (“though before that”) before Muhammad (“they were asking for a signal triumph”) through Muhammad and the Qur'an (“over those who disbelieved”) of their enemies: the tribes of Asad, Ghatafan, Muzaynah, and Juhaynah (“and when there cometh unto them that which they knew”) of his traits and description in their Book (they disbelieved therein) they denied it was him. (“The curse of Allah”) His wrath and torment (“is on disbelievers”) the Jews. Neither of the two quoted commentaries make it clear that the dua made by the Jews to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) was for the war at hand or victory via Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) when he is born. The two commentaries can be interpreted to mean that the Jews seek-ed victory via Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) when he is born, or it can mean that they made dua to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) seeking victory over tribes of Asad, Ghatafan, Muzaynah, Juhaynah in upcoming war. The ambiguity is explained in a detailed Tafsir: Tafsir Asbab Un Nuzul: (“…though before that they were asking for a signal triumph over those who disbelieved…”) [2:89]. Said Ibn 'Abbas: “The Jews of Khaybar were at war with Ghatafan, and whenever the two parties used to meet, Khaybar ended up in defeat. For this reason they devised the following supplication: 'O Allah! We beseech You by the truth of the unlettered Prophet whom You promised to send forth to us at the end of time to give us victory over them'. And so whenever they said this supplication, Ghatafan was defeated. But when the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, was sent forth, they disbelieved in him. It is due to this that Allah, exalted is He, revealed ...” [by: Al Wahidi] From this it becomes clear that there were two victories in mind of Jews when they made dua to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) for victory. One, immediate victory in the upcoming war and two complete victory over the Mushrikeen which would be achieved with Prophet's (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) advent. - Having said that one question will be raised: How does the above dua of Jews be evidence for 'Tawassul Bil Amwat'? To answer that question I need to refer to another verse, and for you to understand it you need to keep the above in mind. Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states that when people will be raised on the day of judgment they will say: Surah Al Momin (40) Verse 11: “They will say: "Our Lord! Twice hast Thou made us without life, and twice hast Thou given us Life! Now have we recognized our sins: Is there any way out (of this)?" This verse has been explained by another verse: Surah Al Baqarah (2) Verse 28: “How can you disbelieve in Allah Seeing that you were dead and He gave you life. Then He will give you death, then again will bring you to life and then unto Him you will return.'' According to Quran the period before our birth is our state of death, then Allah (subhana ta'ala) gave us life (i.e. our birth), then he caused us to die, and then we will be resurrected again, there we have two deaths, and two lives. And Yahood made tawassul of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) mentioned in Quran before his birth, therefore period before his birth is state of his death. Therefore Tawassul (i.e. Bil Amwat) of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) with words: 'O Allah subhana wa ta'ala We beseech you by the truth of the beloved Prophet Muhammed (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) whom you have sent as khatimun nabiyeen wa rusul give us victory over the Khariji-Wahhabi.' would be absolutely substantiated. Part One – A: Surah An'Nisa Verse 64: Ambiyah (alayhis salatu was'salam) are alive in their graves. RasoolAllah (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) is alive in his grave and hears those who visit his resting place and recite salawat upon him. When life of the dead is restored the hearing of the deceased is restored as well. In one hadith of Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) stated: "When a human being is laid in his grave and his companions return and he even hears their foot steps, ...”[6] in another Hadith about a particular group of dead Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) stated: "By Him in Whose Hand Muhammad's (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) soul is, you do not hear, what I say better than they do!"[7] and this was possible because Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) restored their life: "Allah brought them to life (again) to let them hear him, …" this proves that life of general public in grave is life of hearing, seeing, and for Shuhadah (i.e. martyrs) its also of eating. By default the rank of Ambiyah (alayhis salatu was'salam) is higher therefore their constant life in the in hereafter consists of hearing, seeing, eating, praying, etc … Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states in the Quran: Suran An'Nisa (4) Verse 64: “We sent not an apostle, but to be obeyed, in accordance with the will of Allah. If they had only, when they were unjust to themselves, come unto thee and asked Allah's forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah indeed Oft-returning, Most Merciful.” Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states when they the sinners, the munafiqeen, had been unjust to them self’s, they should have come to you O Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) and then asked forgiveness from Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) as well as if you had seek-ed forgiveness for them, then Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) would have been forgiving, and merciful. Note the ayaat of Quran is in Mutliq (i.e. general) and not Muqayyid (i.e. specific) meaning when should the sinners come to him in his life time or when he moves into the heavenly resting place. Hence Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) recommendation is for all times, during the life of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) and after he departs this world for heavenly abode. Therefore if a believer was to visit the blessed Prophet's (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) grave and was to invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), and then ask Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) to invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on his behalf, Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will grant what is asked in the dua. A quick summarisation of discussion, Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) has passed away, yet he is alive in his heavenly resting place, able to hear, see, perform prayers etc … Anyone visits his heavenly resting place and asks him to invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on his behalf, the request of dua to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is heard by him. This proves two forms of disputed tawassul, asking the deceased to make dua to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on your half, and secondly the deceased is making the dua on to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on your behalf this is proof of the dead directly helping you. Part One – B: Mufassireen Who Supported The Interpretation: The mufassireen have supported the above interpretation with narrations which they have recorded in their Tafasirs. Importantly these narrations were mentioned in Tafasirs by Imams of Ahle Sunnat because these narrations supported their belief in 'Tawassul Bil Amwat'. Imam Qurtbi (rahimullah alayhi ta'ala) narrates in his Tafsir: “Narrated Abu Sadiq from Ali: "After three days of burying the Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) a Bedouin came and did threw himself on the grave of the Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam), took the dust and threw it on his head. He said: "Ya RasoolAllah! (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) You did speak and we did hear, you learned from Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and we did learn from you. Between those things which Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) did send you, is following: “And if they had come to you, when they had wronged their souls, ...” I am the one, which is a sinner and now I did came to you, so that you may ask for me." After that a call from the grave did came: "There’s no doubt, you are forgiven!" [Ref Arabic: Tafsir al-Qurtubi, Chapter 4 Verse 64] Ibn Kathir narrates a more detailed tradition of Bedouin in his Tafsir: “Seikh Abu Mansur al-Sabbagh narrates from Utbi in his book.[8] He states once he was sitting near the Prophet’s grave a Bedouin came and he said: 'Peace be on you, O Allah’s Messenger.' I have heard Quran Al Kareems verse: “Wa lau an'nahum izlamu ...” (i.e. “And if they had come to you, when they had wronged their souls, and asked forgiveness of Allah, and the Messenger also had asked forgiveness for them, they would have surely found Allah the Giver of repentance, extremely Merciful.”) I have come in your presence, asking forgiveness for my sins and I make you as my intermediary before my Lord and I have come to you for this purpose.” Then he recited these verses: “O, the most exalted among the buried people who improved the worth of the plains and the hillocks! May I sacrifice my life for this grave which is made radiant by you ( O Prophet!) the one who is (an embodiment) of mercy and forgiveness.” Then the Bedouin went away and I fell asleep. In my dream I saw the Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'salam). He said to me: O ‘Utbi, the Bedouin is right, go and give him the good news that Allah has forgiven his sins.” [Ref Urdu:Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Vol 1, Page 727] The content of these two narrations makes it clear that intermediation of the deceased is permissible even when the deceased is directly asked to help or asked to invoke Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) for forgiveness of sinner or asked to invoke Allah (subhna wa ta'ala) for something else. Heretical Wahabiya might argue the Sanad of these narration is weak, therefore to act of 'Tawassul Bil Amwat' is not substantiated, which is altogether a different subject. In this article servant is only attempting to prove that 'Tawassul Bil Amwat' of disputed type is not 'Shirk Al Akbar', not worship of the dead, grave worshiping, etc. It should be noted that a Mufassir can come to a understanding of verse according to his knowledge then quote a suitable hadith to support his position. Even if the hadith quoted hadith is weak this might weaken his interpretation of verse but it can not repeal his aqeedah unless he has mentioned his rejection of it explicitly. Therefore if the belief of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat was heretical innovation or Shirk then these Imams as well as countless others would not have believed in 'Tawassul Bil Amwat', and there was no chance of them establishing this belief of 'Tawassul Bil Amwat' in their commentaries. Conclusion: 'Tawassul Bil Amwat' asking Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) with the tawassul, wassail of Prophet Muhammed (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) , as well as asking directly to Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'salam) has been established with evidences from Quran hence it is not Shirk and it does not invalidate Aqeedah of Tawheed of a Muslim. Aded bonus references of classical Ulamah of Ahle Sunnat have been added to supplement the position of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat. Wama alayna ilal balaghul mubeen. Muhammed Ali Razvi Foot Notes: - [1] Sunan Abu Dawood, Book 40, Hadith 4580: “... 'Beware! The People of the Book before (you) were split up into 72 sects, and this community will be split up into 73, seventy-two of them will go to Hell and one of them will go to Paradise, and it is the majority group (Jama'ah).” - [2] Sahih Bukhari, Book 76, Number 434 - [3] Sahih Muslim, Book 030, Number 5688 - [4] Sahih Bukhari, Book 73, Hadith 125 - [5] Note, In Wahhabi-Khariji methodology if there is proof for a practice which they deem as 'Shirk Al Akbar' then its not 'Shirk Al Akbar'. Where as in reality if a practice was 'Shirk Al Akbar' with or without evidence it will remain 'Shirk Al Akbar'. Let me explain, belief that Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has a son is 'Shirk Al Akbar', and if Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) had taken a son from out of what He created [Ref: 39:4] this belief would have been 'Shirk Al Akbar' even then. With difference that then in Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) religion of Islam 'Shirk Al Akbar' would have been valid belief as is in the case of man-made Christianity, and was for Mushrikeen of Makkah who attributed to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) daughters. Similarly if tawassul bil amwat was 'Shirk Al Akhbar', it would have be 'Shirk Al Akbar' with or without evidence, and if it was 'Shirk Al Akbar' and had evidence then 'Shirk Al Akbar' wouldnt have been reprehensible. Therefore this logic of Wahhabi-Khariji's is absolute none-sense, evidence or no evidence 'Shirk Al Akbar' will remain 'Shirk Al Akbar' in all cases, in all times, from beginning of creation till the end universe thereafter. - [6] “The Prophet (saws) said, "When a human being is laid in his grave and his companions return and he even hears their foot steps, two Angels come to him and make him sit and ask him: 'What did you use to say about this man, Muhammad (saws)?' He will say: 'I testify that he is Allah's slave and His Messenger.' ...” [Ref: Sahih Al Bukhari, Book 23, Hadith 456] - [7] Sahih Al Bukhari, Book 59, Hadith 314: “... When he halted at the edge of the well, he addressed the corpses of the Quraish infidels by their names and their fathers' names, "O so-and-so, son of so-and-so and O so-and-so, son of so-and-so! Would it have pleased you if you had obeyed Allah and His Messenger? We have found true what our Lord promised us. Have you too found true what your Lord promised you” Hadrat 'Umar (r.a.) asked "O Allah's Messenger (saws)! You are speaking to bodies that have no souls!" Allah's Messenger (saws) replied "By Him in Whose Hand Muhammad's (saws) soul is, you do not hear, what I say better than they do!" … "Allah brought them to life (again) to let them hear him, to reprimand them, and slight them, and take revenge over them, and caused them to feel remorseful and regretful." - [8] Al-Shamil AlHikayat Al Mashhura.
  22. Introduction: Tawassul bil amwat is a controversial subject who’s practitioner consider it to be legitimate practice, within the boundaries of Shariah. Whose detractors consider it nothing less then Shirk Al Akbar, grave-worship, saint worship, dead-worship, and then its fallowed with edicts of Takfir; Sufi mushrik filth, you're apostate worst then the Mushrikeen of Makkah, we will behead you in public, confiscate your property, enslave your women and children.[1] They argue that these verses describe the helplessness of the dead and indicate that you have taken the dead as idol-gods beside Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). And their this saying is falsehood because the dead are not helpless but helpful. Insha'allah ta'ala ul aziz in a seperate article servent will list the arguments which the heretics draw from these verses of Quran and prove this with evidence from Quran & Sunnah that their claims of dead being helpless is falsehood. In this article servant will explain the meanings of the verses in light of Quran and ahadith which the Wahhabi's use or may use as evidence to against the creed of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jammat on Tawassul Bil Amwat. Wahhabi Evidence - One: Surah An'Nisa (4) Verse 117: “(The Pagans), leaving Him, call but upon (i.e. yad'una) female goddesses: They call but upon Satan the persistent rebel!" Part One: The female goddess referred in the verse have been named: Surah An'Najm {53} Verse 19: “Have ye seen Lat. and 'Uzza, {20} And another, the third Manat? (21) What! for you the male , and for Him, the female?” The commentators of Qur’an Surah an'Nisa verse hundred and seventeen have explained what the verse means: Tafsir Al Jalalayn:“What ('in' is to be understand as 'mā' [i.e. ‘only’])[2] they pray to, [what] the idolaters worship, instead of Him, God, that is, other than Him, are but females, idols with feminine names, such as al-Lāt, al-‘Uzza and Manāt; and they …[2*] only pray to, they [only] worship, by worshiping [these female idols], a rebellious Satan, one who has rebelled against obedience [to God], for they are obeying him in this [worship of female idols]." Tafsir Ibn Abbas:(They invoke in His stead) the people of Mecca worship in place of Allah (only females) lifeless idols such as al-Lat, al-'Uzza and Manat; (they pray to) they worship (none else than Satan, a rebel) who is intense in his rebellion." Part Two: The worship of these three idol-goddesses is also mentioned in ahadith: Sahih Bukhari, Book 26, Hadith 706: “... 'Aisha said, "O, my nephew! Your interpretation is not true. Had this interpretation of yours been correct, the statement of Allah should have been, 'It is not harmful for him if he does not perform Tawaf between them.' But in fact, this divine inspiration was revealed concerning the Ansar who used to assume lhram for worshiping an idol called Manat which they used to worship at a place called Al-Mushallal before they embraced Islam, and whoever assumed Ihram (for the idol), would consider it not right to perform Tawaf between Safa ...” Sahih Bukhari, Book 60, Hadith 383: Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "Whomever takes an oath in which he mentions Lat and 'Uzza (forgetfully),[3] should say: 'None has the right to be worshiped but Allah.' And whoever says to his companion: 'Come along, let us gamble must give alms (as an expiation)." Negation of worship of ghairullah in the context of taking oath by mentioning name of Uzza and Lat; then affirmation of worship of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is evidence that Lat as well as Uzza were considered gods which were worshiped by Mushrikeen. Wahhabi Evidence - Two: Surah Al An'am (6) Verse 40 Say: "Think ye to yourselves, if there come upon you the wrath of Allah, or the Hour (that ye dread), would ye then call upon (i.e. tad'una) other than Allah.- (reply) if ye are truthful?” Part One: The answer to this question has been answered in the very next verse: Surah Al An'am (6) Verse 41:"Nay,- On Him would ye call, and if it be His will, He would remove (the distress) which occasioned your call upon Him, and ye would forget the associates ye join (with Him)." In another verse Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) reveals the nature of Mushrikeen: Surah Al Isra (17) Verse 67: When distress seizes you at sea, those that ye call upon - besides Himself - leave you in the lurch but when He brings you back safe to land, ye turn away (from Him). Most ungrateful is man!" Part Two: Verse 41: “... and ye would forget the associates ye join (with Him)." indicates that Mushrikeen of Makkah had associates with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). The meaning Mushrikeen associated partners, associates with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is explained in Qur’an: Surah at'Tawbah (9) Verse 31: “They take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords in derogation of Allah and Christ the son of Mary; yet they were commanded to worship but One Allah. There is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him: (Far is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him).“ The verse makes it clear that Polytheistic Christians took Isa (alayhis salam) as Lord with Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and the Jews took their Rabbi's as Lords as well as Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). In refutation to their these beliefs Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states: “There is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him: (Far is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him).” Negation of gods, and affirmation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) as God is proof that attributed Lords were considered partners in godhood. In case of Prophet Isa (alayhis salam) as well as his mother Maryam (alayhis salam) them being taken as gods is affirmed explicitly in Qur’an: Surah Al Maidah (5) Verse 116: And behold! Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah?" He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou ...” Part Three: From this we can conclude that associates mentioned in ayaat: “... and ye would forget the associates ye join (with Him)." as well as in “... from having the partners they associate (with Him).“ are in meaning of lords, gods.[4] And in the context of 6:41 the verse: “... would ye then call upon (i.e. tad'una) other than Allah.- (reply) if ye are truthful?” [ref: 6:40] refers to gods of Mushrikeen, the idols. Implication of which are; will you mushrikeen call upon Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in time if distress or call upon your idol-gods. Part Four: Incase 'ye of little sense'[5] scream out: 'TA'WHEEL, BA'TAL TA'WHEEL!' servant will substantiate my conclusion from tafasir of well respected commentators of Qur’an. Hadhrat Ibn Abbas (radiallah ta'ala anh) has interpreted the verse to be referring to idols of Mushrikee: Tafsir Ibn Abbas: “(Say: Can ye see yourselves) what you are saying, O people of Mecca, (if the punishment of Allah come upon you) such was the case on the Day of Badr, Uhud or the Confederates (or the Hour come upon you) or if torment comes upon you on the Day of Judgment, (calling upon other than Allah? Do ye then call (for help) to any other than Allah) to lift the torment from you? ((Answer that) if ye are truthful) that the idols are His partners.” Tafsir Al Jalalayn: “Say, O Muhammad (s), to the Meccans: ‘Do you see yourselves, [that is] inform me, if God’s chastisement comes upon you, in this world, or the Hour, the Resurrection, which includes this [chastisement], comes upon you, suddenly, will ye call upon any other than God? No! If you speak truly!’, that the idols can benefit you, then call upon them." The darling of Wahhabi's Ibn Kathir (rahimullah alayhi ta'ala) has linked idols of Mushrikeen with gods of Mushrikeen: Tafsir Ibn Kathir: “Say:"Tell me if Allah's torment comes upon you, or the Hour comes upon you, would you then call upon any one other than Allah (Reply) if you are truthful!'' This means, you -- disbelievers -- will not call other than Allah in this case, because you know that none except He is able to remove the affliction. Allah said: “if you are truthful”by taking gods besides Him. “Nay! To Him alone you call, and, if He willed, He would remove that (distress) for which you call upon Him, and you forget at that time whatever partners you joined with Him (in worship).” for in times of necessity, you only call on Allah and forget your idols and false deities. In another Ayah, Allah said; ...” Wahhabi Evidence - Three: Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) instructs beloved Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) in the Qur’an to say:“Say: "I am forbidden to worship those - others than Allah - whom ye call upon (i.e. tad'una)."in two verses of Qur’an: Surah Al An'am (6) Verse 56: “Say: "I am forbidden to worship those - others than Allah - whom ye call upon (i.e. tad'una)."[6] Say: "I will not follow your wain desires: If I did, I would stray from the path, and be not of the company of those who receive guidance." Surah Ghafir (40) Verse 66: “Say: "I have been forbidden to invoke those whom ye invoke besides Allah,- seeing that the Clear Signs have come to me from my Lord; and I have been commanded to bow (in Islam) to the Lord of the Worlds." Part One: After being instructed to say that he is forbidden to invoke in worship in another verse of Qur’an Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) declares on command of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala): Surah Yunus (10) Verse 104: “Say: "O ye men! If ye are in doubt as to my religion, (behold!) I worship not what ye worship other than Allah. But I worship Allah - Who will take your souls (at death): I am commanded to be (in the ranks) of the Believers” Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) states: “I worship not what you worship … I worship Allah; Who will take your souls (at death).” this indicates what his opponents worship are unable to to take souls at death/sleep. And in Qur’an Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) explicitly declares: Surah an'Nahl (16) Verse 70:“It is Allah who creates you and takes your soul at death; and of you there are some who are sent back to a feeble age, so that they know nothing after having known (much): for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.” Now it has been established that Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) takes soul at death/sleep and Prophet worshiped Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). If it is said: 'I do not attend school which you attend but I attend school which has higher ranking.' It will imply that one who is saying this considers his school to be superior and is discrediting the credentials of the other school. In the similar fashion the understanding derived from this verse:“I worship not what ye worship other than Allah. But I worship Allah - Who will take your souls (at death).” is that Allah the God of Prophet Muhammed (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) takes the soul of person at death/sleep and gods which his opposition worships are unable to take the soul at death/sleep. This inability of gods besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is mentioned in the Qur’an: Surah Al Furqan (25) Verse 3: “Yet have they taken, besides him, gods that can create nothing but are themselves created; that have no control of hurt or good to themselves; nor can they control death nor life nor resurrection.” From this we can conclude that Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) was instructed to say to Mushrikeen that he is forbidden to worship gods besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) which can not take the soul at the time of death/sleep. Instead he was instructed to worship Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) who can take souls at the time of death/sleep and has control over benefit as well as harm. And controls life,death of His creation as well as their resurrection on the day of judgment. Part Two: Hadhrat Ibn Abbas (radiallah ta'ala anh) interpreted: "I am forbidden to worship those - others than Allah - whom ye call upon (i.e. tad'una)." to mean: “(I am forbidden) in the Qur'an (to worship those) idols (unto whom ye cry) whom you worship ...” Tafsir Ibn Abbas: “(Say) O Muhammad, to the people of Mecca, when they said to him: " revert to the religion of your forefathers ": (I am forbidden) in the Qur'an (to worship those) idols (unto whom ye cry) whom you worship (beside Allah since there have come unto me clear proofs from my Lord, and I am commanded) in the Qur'an (to surrender) to be straight in following Islam (to the Lord of the Worlds) the Lord of all that which has a spirit and moves on the face of the earth.” [ref: Surah 6 Verse 65] Ibn Kathir (rahimullah alayhi ta'ala) does not interpret the surah al an'Am verse 56, but instead he only interprets the verse partly. The first part of of the verse is interpreted in another verse which has same wording as surah al an'Am verse 65: Tafsir Ibn Kathir: “Allah says, `say, O Muhammad, to these idolaters, that Allah forbids them to worship anyone, such as these idols and false gods, except Him.' Allah explains that no one apart from Him is deserving of worship, as He says: ...” [ref: Surah 40 Verse 66] Imam Jalal Ud Din Suyuti (alayhi rehma) does not interpret the verse explicitly: Tafsir Al Jalalayn: “Say: ‘Truly I have been forbidden to worship those whom you call upon, [those whom] you worship, besides God.’ Say: ‘I shall not follow your whims, by worshiping them, for then, if I did follow them, verily I would have gone astray and I would not be of the rightly guided’.” The ambiguity of whom the verse refers to is only removed when Tafsir of surah al Ghafir verse 66 is read in the context of previous verse's Tafsir: Tafsir Al Jalalayn: “He is the Living; there is no god except Him. So supplicate Him, worship Him, devoting [your] religion purely to Him, [free] from any idolatry. Praise be to God, the Lord of the Worlds. Say: ‘I have been forbidden to worship those on whom you call, [those whom] you worship, besides God, since there have come to me clear signs, proofs of His Oneness, from my Lord; and I have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the Worlds’.” [ref: Surah 40 Verse 65-66] Wahhabi Evidence - Four : Surah Al A'raf (7) Verse 194: “Verily those whom ye call upon (i.e. tad'una) besides Allahare servants like unto you: Call upon them,[7] and let them listen to your prayer, if ye are (indeed) truthful!” Part One: Hadith reveals the identity of the servants referred in the verse of Qur’an: Sahih Bukhari, Book 60, Hadith 442: “... All the idols which were worshiped by the people of Noah were worshiped by the Arabs later on. As for the idol Wadd, it was worshiped by the tribe of Kalb at Daumat-al-Jandal; Suwa' was the idol of (the tribe of) Murad and then by Ban, Ghutaif at Al-Jurf near Saba; Yauq was the idol of Hamdan, and Nasr was the idol of Himyr, the branch of Dhi-al-Kala.' The names (of the idols) formerly belonged to some pious men of the people of Noah, and when they died Satan inspired their people to prepare and place idols at the places where they used to sit, and to call those idols by their names. The people did so, but the idols were not worshiped till those people (who initiated them) had died and the origin of the idols had become obscure, whereupon people began worshiping them.” The Hadith explains that the Idols which the Mushrikeen of Makkah worshiped were in fact pious people belonging to Ummah of Nuh (alayhis salam), when these pious people died Shaytan came and whispered to them to make Idols of the pious worshipers of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Later the narrative of why the Idols were created was forgotten because shaytaan made them forget it and these idols of were then worshiped by Mushrikeen. Part Two: Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) says: “Verily those whom ye call upon (i.e. tad'una) besides Allah are servants like unto you: Call upon them, and ...” in another verse Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) discussing the same servants states:“Yet they attribute to some of His servants a share with Him (in his godhead)! truly is man a blasphemous ingrate avowed.”[ref: 43:15] The share which they attribute to servants of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is mentioned in detail in another verse of Qur’an: Surah Al An'aam (6) Verse 136: And they assign to Allah share of the tilth and cattle which He has created, and they say: "This is for Allah'' according to their claim, "and this is for our partners.'' But the share of their partners reaches not Allah, while the share of Allah reaches their partners! Evil is the way they judge!” Surah Al Maidah (5) Verse 103: “It was not Allah who instituted (superstitions like those of) bahira, or sahiba, or wasila, or ham: It is blasphemers who invent a lie against Allah. but most of them lack wisdom.” The verses of Qur’an only allude to some of the customs of Mushrikeen related to their animals, a hadith of Sahih Bukhari sheds light on it in detail: Sahih Bukhari, Book 60, Hadith 147: ...bahira is a she-camel whose milk is kept for the idols and nobody is allowed to milk it; Sa'iba was the she-camel which they used to set free for their gods and nothing was allowed to be carried on it. ... Wasila is the she-camel which gives birth to a she-camel as its first delivery, and then gives birth to another she-camel as its second delivery. People (in the Pre-lslamic periods of ignorance) used to let that she camel loose for their idols if it gave birth to two she-camels successively without giving birth to a male camel in between. 'Ham' was the male camel which was used for copulation. When it had finished the number of copulations assigned for it, they would let it loose for their idols and excuse it from burdens so that nothing would be carried on it, and they called it the 'Hami.' ...." Part Three: Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states: Surah Al Ambiyah (21) Verse 26: “And they say: "The Most Gracious has begotten children.'' Glory to Him! They are but honored servants.” Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states that the children (i.e. daughters, which Mushrikeen attributed, sons which Jews, Christians) attributed to Him are nothing more then honored servants of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). And Allah subhana wa ta'ala states about these servants:: Verily those whom ye call upon (i.e. tad'una) besides Allah are servants like unto you: Call upon them, ...” These honored servants which Mushrikeen call upon are subjects of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) they are creation like the Mushrikeen are creation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and not gods besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Part Four: Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will gather the pious people of Nuh (alayhis salam) which the Mushrikeen took as gods besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala), as well as the sons, the daughters, which the Mushrikeen attributed to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and ask them: "Was it ye who let these My servants astray, or did they stray from the Path themselves?" [ref: 25:17] And they all will reply to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) Surah Al Furqan (25) Verse 18: “They will say: Glorified be You! It was not for us to take any protectors besides You, but You gave them and their fathers comfort till they forgot the warning, and became a lost people.” In the case of Isa (alayhis salam) and Maryam (alayhis salam) when Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will inquire from them: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, take me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah.?"[8] He will reply to Allah's question: Surah Al Maidah (5) Verse 116: “... He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden.” This leads me to conclude that Mushrikeen of Makkah worshiped the idols of pious people of Nuh (alayhis salam) whom they had taken as gods besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and they give share of their cattle, and crops to their idol-gods. And the servants of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) on the day of judgment will disassociate them self from Mushrikeen and deny the status godhood which the Mushrikeen attributed to them. Part Five: Ibn Kathir (rahimullah alayhi ta'ala) interprets surah al A'raf verse 194 in the context of story of Ibrahim (alayhi salam). Its long detailed Tafsir in the mentioned context but servant will only quote from the beginning of Tafsir, which starts from verse 191 and then the relevant part: “Allah admonishes the idolaters who worshiped idols, rivals and images besides Him, although these objects were created by Allah, and neither own anything nor can they bring harm or benefit. These objects do not see or give aid to those who worship them. They are inanimate objects that neither move, hear, or see. Those who worship these objects are better than they are, for they hear see and have strength of their own. Allah said: “Do they attribute as partners to Allah those who created nothing but they themselves are created.” meaning, `Do you associate with Allah others that neither create, nor have power to create anything'” It seems that Ibn Kathir (rahimullah alayhi ta)'ala in his Tafsir had this part of verse: “...Call upon them, and let them listen to your prayer, ...” [ref: 7:194] in mind when he wrote the below: “The Ayah:“And if you call them to guidance, they hear not and you will see them looking at you, yet they see not:” is similar to another Ayah:“If you invoke (or call upon) them, they hear not your call.” [35:14] Allah said next: ”... and you will see them looking at you, yet they see not.” meaning they have eyes that stare as if they see, although they are solid. Therefore, the Ayah treated them as if they had a mind saying, Tarahum, instead of Taraha ﴾since they are made in the shape of humans with eyes drawn on them.)” Tafsir Ibn Abbas (radiallah ta'ala anh) explicitly mentions the idols: Tafsir Ibn Abbas: “Lo! those on whom ye call ...”(i.e. worship)“... beside Allah ...” (i.e. of idols)“... are slaves like unto you ...” (i.e. are created like you.)“Call on them ...” (i.e. the idols)“... now, and let them answer you ...”(i.e. let them hear your call and answer) “... if ye are truthful!” (i.e. that they can benefit you.)“ Finally coming to Tafsir of Imam Jalal Ud Din Suyuti (rahimullah alayhi ta'ala), he interprets the verse 194: “ … call them then and let them answer you, your call, if you are truthful, in [claiming] that they are gods: ...” from this it becomes clear that the verse is about a people who took servant of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) as gods, but for a clearer understanding read verse 194 in the context of 193: Tafsir Al Jalalayn – Verse 193: And if you call them, that is, the idols, to guidance, they will not follow you (read yatba‘ūkum or yattabi‘ūkum). It will be the same [response] for you, whether you call them, to it, or whether you are silent, [refraining] from calling them, they will not follow it, because they cannot hear. (194) Truly those on whom you call, [whom] you worship, besides God are servants, owned, like you; call them then and let them answer you, your call, if you are truthful, in [claiming] that they are gods: God then illustrates their utter incapacity and the superiority which their worshipers possess over them, saying: ...” Part Seven: The overall conclusion in the light of Quran, Hadith, and commentaries is that the ayaat in dicussion was revealed for the Idols of Mushrikeen. And the servents reffered in the ayaat are those pious worshippers of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) who have been elivated to the status of gods after their passing away. These servents (i.e. pious worshippers belonging to Nuh alayhis salam ummah, Isa alayhis salam, Maryam alayhis salam, etc ...) on the day of judgement will deny claiming to be gods besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala)[9]. Wahhabi Evidence - Five: Surah Al A'raf (7) Verse 197: "But those ye call upon (i.e. tad'una) besides Him, are unable to help you, and indeed to help themselves." Part One: Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) saying: “... besides Him are unable to help you and indeed to help themselves.” is in meaning of that the idols of mushrikeen are unable to grant anything to anyone or protect themselves. A demonstration of this is in story of Ibrahim (alayhis salam) when his uncle[10] Azhar leaves him with idols: Surah Al Anbiyah (21) Verse 57:"And by Allah, I have a plan for your idols - after ye go away and turn your backs". (58) So he broke them to pieces, (all) but the biggest of them, that they might turn (and address themselves) to it. (59) They said, "Who has done this to our gods? He must indeed be some man of impiety!" (60) They said, "We heard a youth talk of them: He is called Abraham." (61) They said, "Then bring him before the eyes of the people, that they may bear witness." (62) They said, "Art thou the one that did this with our gods, O Abraham?" (63) He said: "Nay, this was done by - this is their biggest one! ask them, if they can speak intelligently!" (64) So they turned to themselves and said, "Surely ye are the ones in the wrong!" (65) Then were they confounded with shame: (they said), "Thou knowest full well that these (idols) do not speak!" (66) (Abraham) said, "Do ye then worship, besides Allah, things that can neither be of any good to you nor do you harm? (67) "Fie upon you, and upon the things that ye worship besides Allah. Have ye no sense?" Not only the idols of Mushrikeen are unable to help themselves by defending them selves against Ibrahim (alayhis salam) but they are unable to help the Mushrikeen in their difficulties. Ibrahim (alayhis salam) also makes it clear that: “... besides Allah things that can neither be of any good to you nor do you harm?” and if they were able to do good as well as harm to anyone; they would have done good to them selves first by defending themselves and harmed Ibrahim (alayhis salam) for breaking the idol of gods into smithrens. And this is supported by; idol-gods of Mushrikeen have no control over harm or good for themselves: Surah Al Furqan (25) verse 3:“Yet have they taken mindu’nillah godsthat can create nothing but are themselves created; that have no control of hurt or good to themselves; nor can they control death nor life nor resurrection.“ Part Two: Tafsir al Jalalayn should be read from 195 to 198 to properly understand the context in which Imam Jalal ud Din Suyuti rahimullah alayhi ta'ala explained the verse but I will only present two Tafsir of two verses: Tafsir Al Jalalayn 197: “And as for those on whom you call besides God, they have no power to help you, nor can they help themselves’, so why should I be concerned with them? (198) And if you call upon them, that is, the idols, to guidance, they do not hear; and you see them, that is, the idols, O Muhammad (s), staring at you, looking toward you, as a person looks, but they do not perceive.” In Tafsir Tanwir al Miqbas Ibn Abbas (radi'allah ta'ala anh) has interpreted the verse as fallows: Tafsir Ibn Abbas: “(They on whom ye call) worship (beside Him) of idols (have no power to help you) to benefit or harm you, (nor can they help themselves) nor prevent what is wanted with them.” From Quran as well as commentaries of mufassireen it has become clear that this verse was revealed about the Mushrikeen of Makkah who worshipped the idol-gods. Wahhabi Evidence – Six: Surah Al Isra (17) Verse 56: “Say: "Call on those - besides Him - whom ye fancy: they have neither the power to remove your troubles from you nor to change them." Part One: Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states: "Call on those - besides Him - whom ye fancy: they have neither the power to remove your troubles from you nor to change them." in another place Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) questions the Mushrikeen: “... "Will ye worship, besides Allah, something which hath no power either to harm or benefit you?”[11] and Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) declares: "… those ye call upon besides Him, are unable to help you, and indeed to help themselves"[12] And further in another verse of Qur’an Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states that Mushrikeen had taken against Allah gods: “Yet have they taken besides Allah gods that can create nothing but are themselves created; that have no control of hurt or good to themselves; nor can they control death nor life nor resurrection.”[13] In another verse Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) also states that Mushrikeen had taken idols against Allah:"You have taken besides of Allah as idols, out of mutual love and regard between yourselves in this life; but on the Day of Judgment ye shall disown each other and curse each other.”[14] This means that Mushrikeen had taken beside of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) idols as gods and these idol-gods do not have ability to harm, benefit or change the fortune of anyone, they are themselves created by men and do not control life or death. Part Two: Surah Al An'am (6) Verse 100: "Yet they make the jinn equals with Allah, though Allah did create the Jinn; and they falsely, having no knowledge, attribute to Him sons and daughters. Praise and glory be to Him! (for He is) above what they attribute to Him!" Jinn are shayateen (i.e. Satans)[15] and these shayateen have been assigned to every one.[16] The Mushrikeen of Makkah in obedience to the shayateen attributed to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) idols as gods, and daughters to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). A group of Jews in obedience to Shayateen attributed to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) Uzair as son, and Christians attributed to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) Isa (alayhis salam) as son. And this obedience in fundamental aspect of aqeedah of Tawheed & Shirk is termed as worship because obedience is form of respect and any respect given to a being who is given a attribute of Allah[17] (subhana wa ta'ala) and obeyed in a matter which he opposes Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is worship of that being. In the context of this discussion the Shayateen have incited in past and will incite in future for people to worship idols[18] and those who obeyed them in past, and those who will obey them in future have taken the shayateen as partners to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Their obedience is worship of shayateen the Jinn and Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will question on the day of judgment: Surah Ya Seen (36) Verse 60 "Did I not enjoin on you, O ye Children of Adam, that ye should not worship Satan; for that he was to you an enemy avowed?” Surah Saba (34) Verse 41: They will say, "Glory to Thee! our (tie) is with Thee - as Protector - not with them. Nay, but they worshiped the Jinns: most of them believed in them." In context of above discussion the verse: "Call on those - besides Him - whom ye fancy: they have neither the power to remove your troubles from you nor to change them." means; Mushrikeen call upon in worship besides Him anyone of the gods you have attribute. Mushrikeen of Makkah call upon the idols of pious peoples of Nuh (alayhis salam) or the pious people whom you have taken as gods or call upon the Jinns whom you worship. Jews call upon Uzair whom you have taken as son of God, Christians call upon Isa (alayhis salam) whom you have taken as son of God because your call to them will be not answered because do not posses ability to help[19] you in time of your distress or ward off evil by inflicting another or by changing what was destined for you by Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Part Three: Surah Al Isra (17) Verse 55: “And your Lord is most knowing of whoever is in the heavens and the earth. And We have made some of the prophets exceed others [in various ways], and to David We gave the book [of Psalms]. (56) Say: "Call on those - besides Him - whom ye fancy: they have neither the power to remove your troubles from you nor to change them. (57) Those whom they invoke seek means of access to their Lord, [striving as to] which of them would be nearest, and they hope for His mercy and fear His punishment. Indeed, the punishment of your Lord is ever feared. The meaning of ayaat: “Those whom they invoke seek means of access to their Lord, [striving as to] which of them would be nearest, ...” is that the pious worshipers belonging to Ummah of Honorable Prophet Nuh (alayhis salam)[20] and Honorable Prophet Isa (alayhis salam), his righteous mother Honorable Maryam (alayhis salam) the Jinn who became Muslims[21], and Uzair[22], that all of these compete with one and other and seek Wasilah (i.e. means) to approach onto Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) because they are Muslims believers in oneness of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) whom they worship as their God without associating a partner with Him. Therefore: "Call on those - besides Him - whom ye fancy: they have neither the power to remove your troubles from you nor to change them." because the aid, the removal of affliction, the granting of mercy is in control of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and in His Godhood there are no partners, and as god none can help not even these pious worshipers of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Part Four: Tafsir Ibn Kathir: “Say ...”O Muhammad to these idolaters who worship things other than Allah. “Call upon those - besides Him whom you pretend.” such as idols and rivals of Allah. Even if you turn to them: “They have neither the power to remove the adversity from you” they have no such power at all, “nor even to shift (it from you to another person.)).” to lift the distress from you and give it to someone else. The meaning is that the only one Who is able to do that is Allah Alone, with no partner or associate, Who is the One Who creates and issues commands.” Tafsir Al Jalalayn: “Say, to them: ‘Call on those whom you assumed, to be gods, besides Him, such as the angels, Jesus and Ezra (‘Uzayr); yet they have no power to rid you of misfortune nor to transfer, it to [persons] other than you.” Tafsir Ibn Abbas: “(Say) O Muhammad, to Khuza'ah who worshiped the jinn, thinking they were angels: (Cry unto those (saints and angels) whom ye assume (to be gods)) you worship (beside Him) apart from Allah in times of hardship, (yet they have no power to rid you of misfortune) they cannot remove hardship from you (nor to change) nor transfer this hardship to someone else.” The commentaries make it clear that the ones referred in the verse: “... "Call on those - besides Him - whom ye fancy: they have neither the power to remove your troubles from you nor to change them." are not just ordinary people, but they are those people who had been taken as gods by Mushrikeen of Arabia. Wahhabi Evidence – Seven: Surah Al Ahqaf (46) Verse 5: “And who is more astray than one who invokes besides Allah, such as will not answer him to the Day of Judgment, and who (in fact) are unaware of their call (to them)?”[23] Part One: Those whom the Mushrikeen called upon can not answer a dua because they do not posses the abilities, organs, with which they can hear, see, help the Mushrikeen nor they posses the power to do as they please. Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) questions the Mushrikeen: “Have they feet to walk with? Or hands to lay hold with? Or eyes to see with? Or ears to hear with? Say: "Call your 'god-partners', scheme (your worst) against me, and give me no respite!” [Ref: Surah 7:195] Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) partly answers the questions Himself in in verse: “If thou callest them for guidance, they hear not. Thou wilt see them looking at thee, but they see not.” [Ref: Surah 7:198] This means that they have eyes but do not see with them eyes, and due to this we can infer that (some of) idol-gods have feet but are unable to walk with, have hands but are unable to hold with, have ears but are unable to hear with them. And due to this: “If ye invoke them, they will not listen to your call, and if they were to listen, they cannot answer your (prayer). On the Day of Judgment they will reject your "Partnership" ...” [Ref: Surah 35:14] In another part of Qur’an Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) why the Idols are unable to hear: “... mindu’nillah gods that can create nothing but are themselves created; that have no control of hurt or good to themselves; nor can they control death nor life nor resurrection.“ [Ref: Surah 25:3] and the idol-gods which the Mushrikeen in worship call upon in time of their distress: “(They the idols are) dead, lifeless, and they know not when they (the people) will be raised up." [Ref: Surah 16:21] Part Two: Tafsir Al Jalalayn: “And who is (man here is interrogative but meant [rhetorically] as a negation: in other words, ‘no one is’) further astray than him who invokes, [him who] worships, besides God, that is to say, other than Him, such as would not respond to him [even] until the Day of Resurrection — these are the idols, who never answer those who worship them in anything that they ask for — and who are heedless of their supplication, their worship, because they are inanimate that possess no [faculty of] comprehension. “ Tafsir Ibn Abbas: “And who is further astray ...” from the Truth and guidance “... than those who instead of Allah, ...” (i.e. the disbeliever)“... call[24] unto ...” worship “... such as hear not their prayer ...” such as respond not to his supplication “... until the Day of Resurrection and ...”, (i.e. the idols) “... are unconscious of their prayer ...” and are unaware of the prayers of those who worship them.[25] Tafsir Ibn Kathir: “And who is more astray than those who invokes besides Allah others who will not answer them until the Day of Resurrection, and who are unaware of their invocations to them.” Meaning, no one is more misguided than those who invoke idols instead of Allah, asking them for things that they cannot give -- until the Day of Judgment. They (the idols) are unaware of what he asks, they can neither hear, see, or act. This is because they are inanimate, senseless stones.” Commentators of Quran has affirmed that the ones who are reffered in these verses of Quran are Idol-gods of Mushrikeen of Makkah, and Idol-gods in general. Footnotes: - [1] A Arab Wahhabi issued this edict against me in a meeting. For a similar edict refer to Arabic original: 'Al Hadaya'tus Saniy'yat' [by: Sulaiman bin Sahman Najdi] Urdu translation: 'Tohfa e Wahhabiyah', [by: Ismail Ghaznavi] and from which I translate: “… meaning their this action is Shirk [al Akbar] in every scenario and its permissible to spill the blood of such people … and robbing them of their property is mubah (i.e. permissible)” - [2] Original: (in, is [to be understand as] mā, ‘only’), altered to: ('in' is to be understand as 'mā' [i.e. ‘only’])[2*] Removed: (in, is [to be understand as] mā, ‘only’), inserted three dots instead. - [3] A oath taken on idol-god instead of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is worship of that idol-god, therefore a oath taken on Idol-god intentionally will warrant Shirk Al Akbar for which a person must re-affirm his belief in Islam with: 'La ila'ha il'Allah, Muhammedur RasoolAllah.' {i.e. There is no god worthy of worship accept Allah, Muhammed is a Rasool from Allah.) In mistake as it is in the context of hadith it will NOT nullify ones Islam but affirmation of Tawheed with words: 'La ila'ha il'Allah.' is to be understood in light of: “If a suggestion from Satan assail thy (mind), seek refuge with Allah ...” [ref: 7:200] Another important point; oaths taken on any other object, being, without polytheistic aqeedah are Haram (i.e. forbidden). - [4] Even though 6:40-41 are about Mushrikeen of Makkah, and other ayaat are about Jews and the Christians; the inferred point is valid because Shirk of all these groups was same. Note 6:41 uses word “tu'Shrikoon” and verse 9:31 uses “yu'Shrikoon” hence the meaning of words and implications of the words in the context of belief of Jews,Christians and Mushrikeen of Makkah are same therefore inference is valid. - [5] According to Bible Jesus said to one of his disciples 'Ye of little faith.' and in humor sometimes I address my Wahhabi associates as: 'Ye of little sense.' - [6] Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) directly instructs Honorable Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) to say for education of the Muslims as well as Mushrikeen:"I am forbidden to worship those - others than Allah - whom ye call upon (i.e. tad'una) ...” It means: 'I am [has a human being] forbidden to worshiped those others than Allah – whom you call upon.[because Allah created mankind for His worship]. I will not follow your wain desires: [of Shaytan because inspiration has come to me that your God is the One God (i.e. Allah)] and I have been commanded to bow to the Lord of the Worlds[and in the worship of his Lord, admit no one as partner.]” If the instruction of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) is understood to be directly for Honorable Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) then it instructs to negate in dua (i.e. supplication) the worship of Idol-gods, instead affirm the Tawheed of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). There are many duas of Honorable Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) in which he did this: "la ilaha illal-lahu al-'Azim, al-Halim, la ilaha illal-lahu Rabbu-s-samawati wal-ard wa Rabbu-l-arsh il-azim," [Ref: Bukhari, B75, H357] - [7] Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) says to mushrikeen that in reality the Idols you created and named after the pious worshipers of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) are servants, subjects of Allah's kingdom: “Verily those whom ye call upon (i.e. tad'una) besides Allah are servants like unto you: Call upon them, ...” therefore they are like you in the inability to grant anything to anyone, which is supported by: “... and if they were to hear they could not grant it ...” [ref: 35:14]. Another interpretation is that the Mushrikeen are unable to hear the call of Tawheed, Islam, just as the Idols can not hear their prayers: “If you invoke them they will not hear your call; ...” [ref: 35:14] because Mushrikeen are like them (i.e. idols). This interpretation is supported by: “Deaf, dumb, and blind, they will not return (to the path).”[ref: 2:18] - [8] The question of: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, take me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah.?" reveals that gathered servants of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) [i.e. pious people of Nuh alayhis salam, angle-daughters, Uzair, Isa alayhis salam] are being questioned about if they claimed to be gods besides Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). - [9] Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) states: “And he said: "You have taken instead of Allah (i.e. mindu'nillah) as idols, out of mutual love and regard between yourselves in this life;but on the Day of Judgment ye shall disown each other and curse each other: and your abode will be the Fire, and ye shall have none to help." [ref:Surah Ankabut (29) verse 25] - [10] Qur’an uses the word abeehi (i.e. father) for Azar who was uncle of Ibrahim (alayhis salam). There are weak ahadith which have reached to the level of talluqi bil qabool which explain that Azar was uncle of Ibrahim (alayhis salam). Its common in Arab culture and in culture of subcontinent that youngsters address their elders with appellations such as father, mother ignoring the factual titles for the elders. Such use of titles is sign of deep love, and respect which youngsters have for their elders. - [11] Surah Al Maidah (5) Verse 76 - [12] Surah Al A'raf (7) Verse 197 - [13]Surah Al Furqan (25) verse 3 - [14]Surah Ankabut (29) verse 25 - [15] Iblees (i.e. Satan) is reffered as Jinn in this verse of Quran: “Behold! We said to the angels, "Bow down to Adam": They bowed down except Iblis. He was one of the Jinns, and he broke the Command of his Lord. Will ye then take him and his progeny as protectors rather than Me? And they ...” [ref: 18:5] - [16] Sahih Muslim, Book 39, Hadith 6757: “Abdullah b. Mas'ud reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: There is none amongst you with whom is not an attache from amongst the Jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah's Messenger, with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good.” - [17] Attribute of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) given to shaytaan is mentioned here: "If not Him, ye worship nothing but names which ye have named,- ye and your fathers,- for which Allah hath sent down no authority: the command is for none but Allah. He hath commanded that ye worship none but Him: that is the right religion, but most men understand not ...”[Surah Yusuf (12) Verse 40] The command here means the authority to legislate religion, and in the context of verse it means right to declare who should be worshiped, and who should be taken as Ilah (i.e. god), this is Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) right alone. Allah (subhana wa ta'ala): excercising his right had commanded: “He hath commanded that ye worship none but Him: that is the right religion, ...”And if right of legislating religion, and declaring who is God, and worship is given to another (i.e. shaytaan), or accept what Shaytaan has legislated as part of deen then you have taken shaytaan as Ilah (i.e. god) beside Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). - [18] Prophet of Allah (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) foretold that near the end of time Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will send a musky wind which will take the life of anyone who have iota, or mustard seed size faith in their heart the people left behind will revert to idolatry when shaytan will incite them to it: “... I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the charactertistics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil. Then the satan would come to them in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols but, in spite of this, they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives. Then the trumpet ...” [ref: Muslim B 41, H 7023] - [19] Here the inability to help mentioned is bidh'dhaat, meaning they are unable to help by their ownselves but with permission of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) they can help. Also the verse means that they as gods do not posses any ability to help, remove distress. As a creation of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) and as Muslims the Jinn and Isa (alayhis salam) can help bi'iznillah, they can beseech Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) to ward off evil from believers. - [20] Idols of these pious worshippers of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) were made and later taken to be gods beside Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). - [21] Surah Al Jinn (72) Verse 1: “Say, [O Muhammad], "It has been revealed to me that a group of the jinn listened and said, 'Indeed, we have heard an amazing Qur'an.(2) It guides to the right course, and we have believed in it. And we will never associate with our Lord anyone.” - [22] According to the Tafsir of verse 56 and in context of the verse 57 Uzair was a pious man who had been elivated to level of being son of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) knows better! - [23] Wahhabi's may argue: 'The dead can not hear therefore the verse also refers to the deceased, and those who make Tawassul of the Awliyah.' To put it bluntly, the Awliyah are Idols dead, lifeless, unable to hear, or see, or grant anything to anyone, and Muslims who make Tawassul of Awliyah are Mushirkeen. To apply verses of Qur’an which were revealed about Idols as well as Mushrikeen on Awliyah who have passed away and Muslims is rebellion against teaching of Islam. Prophet (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) knew that Khawarij would do this so he quoted what Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) said: “… and My slave keeps on coming closer to Me ... till I love him, … so I (i.e. Allah) become his sense of hearing with which he hears, and his sense of sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he grips, and his leg with which he walks; and if he asks Me, I will give him, and if he asks My protection (Refuge), I will protect him; ...” [Ref: Bukhari, B76, H509] and because there is no death for Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) there is no death for Wali's sight, hearing, walking, gripping, there is no ceasing of his beseeching Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). Note Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) literally does not become part of his creation (i.e. eyes, ears, hands, feet) its metaphoric expression of supernatural (i.e. Karamati) abilities which Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) grants a Wali. Another reason for Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) stating that He becomes, eyes, ears, hands, feet, is to convey that as His attributes are not effected by time so do the supernatural attributes of Wali's do not cease after their death. Khidr (alayhis salam) a Wali of Allah who lived in the time of Musa (alayhis salam) will expose Dajjal's reality. When Dajjal kills him and then restores his life he will turn around and say: “... By Allah, I had no better proof of the fact (that you are a dajjal) than at the present time (that you are actually so). The dajjal would then make an attempt to kill him (again) but he would not be able to do that. Abu Ishaq reported that it was Said: That person would be Khadir (Allah be pleased with him).” [Ref: Muslim, B41, H7017] I have personally observed as well as of countless other Muslims observed that bodies of pious believers do not decay, a true Wali's body remains as it was in life. Even though Khidr (alayhis salam) has passed away centuries ago he has eyes with which he sees, ears with which he hears, and hands with which he holds, and feet with which he walks. Another example is of Musa (alayhis salam) performing Salah in his grave, in fact all the Ambiyah (alayhis salam) had passed away, but in their graves they are alive, they possess seeing eyes, hearing ears, holding hands, walking feet, and nothing is restricted for them. In fact fulfillment of the promise which Allah's (subhana wa ta'ala) had secured from Ambiyah on Misaqun nabiyeen was when he Prophet lead the Ambiyah (alayhis salam) in prayers, all the Ambiyah (alayhis salam) gathered in Masjid Al Aqsa in support of Messenger (sallalahu alayhi was'sallam) to aid him. Conclusion is that once a human has earned nearness to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) Nabi or Wali regardless after his death his barzakhi life is real has life of this world, with body and all the purified attributes. They hear, see, hold, walk and beseech Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) in worship, and their karamati abilities which Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) granted them in their life do not cease even after their death. And if they wish they can aid in time of difficulty, or like Khidr (alayhis salam) expose the reality of enemy of Islam (i.e. Dajjal). - [24] In the original translation the phrase: “... pray unto ...” was used, and the word 'pray' is associated with worship in English language. Therefore the translation of yad'u to pray would eliminate the valid basis for Tafsir of yad'u. Only reason it would require Tafsir is if yad'u was translated literally: “... call unto ...” and the word worship was interpretation of yad'u (i.e. call unto, call upon). - [25] As it was translated it was hard to comprehend what was being said without detective work. Edited so the Tafsir is bit more clear.
