Allaah's Command
Bismil Laahir Rahmaanir Raheem
Allaah, in whose name I begin, is the most Compassionate, the
Most Merciful

You (O Beloved, Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) shall not find people who
believe in Allaah and the Last Day, loving those who act in
opposition to Allaah and His Messenger. Even though they may be
their fathers, or sons, or their brothers, or their kinsmen. These are
they in whose hearts He has inscribed faith and whom He has
strengthened with an inspiration from Him. And He will cause
them to enter Paradise, beneath which rivers flow, to remain there
for eternity. Allaah is well pleased with them and they are well
pleased with Him. Those are of Allaah's party, undoubtedly, the
party of Allaah is successful.
(Al-Qur'aan, Chapter: Al-Mujaadalah, Part 28, Verse 22)

INTRODUCTION
Al hamdu lil laah, The Maulana Okarvi Academy (Al-Aalami) of South Africa is
indeed privileged to present the Muslims of South Africa a most significant work ever to be available in
this country. This book is intended to open the eyes, ears and minds of all our Muslim brothers and
sisters whom Allaah Taaalaa has bestowed a sense of justice, open-mindedness and the ability to
distinguish between the truths from false.
I do not intend to dwell into a deep and lengthy introduction regarding the subject matter you are
about to encounter within the covers of this book but I will attempt to very briefly give the readers a
condense and comprehensive background about the events which lead to the publication of this blockbuster work by our Academy for the protection and preservation of the faith of Muslims from the worst
enemies of Islaam.
It may be recalled few years ago a group of ignorant and misguided Mullaas stationed at Lenasia
in Transvaal, concealing their identities under a fancy but fabricated organization called "The Council for
the Propagation of the Sunnah of Islaam" published weak little booklets in three parts under the
meaningless and ridiculous title of "From Johannesburg to Bareilly" for the explicit purpose of
undermining the faith of the Muslims and for assassinating the character of the renowned Scholars and
the Saints of Islaam that the world has ever produced in the last 200 years. The target of their vile abuse
and perpetual attack was directed at none other than the world acclaimed scholar and leader of the
majority of the Muslims and the internationally acknowledged reviver (Mujaddid) of Islaam Alaa Hazrat
Maulana Imaam Ahmad Razaa Khan (Allaah be pleased with him) of Bareilly Shareef, India. These booklets
written by the ever mischievous Deobandi Wahaabi, Mullaas of South Africa are so full of lies,
fabrications, misconceptions and distortions that they must have surely made their nonbelieving leaders
(Murtadd) turn in their graves. The style, the language and the tone of their writings clearly suggests that
the above mentioned books are the works of unashamed ignorant and half baked Mullaas with twisted,
perverted and distorted minds, who can be found in abundance within the Deobandi Wahaabis hierarchy
in South Africa.
The allegations and attacks against Islaam and the religiously sacred beliefs and practices of the
Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat creed, contained in those books are so wildly ridiculous and unimaginably
outrageous that some Scholars of the Ahle Sunnat even refused to respond to all the loads of unconfirmed
rubbish that was poured out from the insane minds and disease infested hearts of the Deobandi Wahaabi
Mullaas of South Africa.
But, Al Hamdu Lil Laah, the Maulana Okarvi Academy (Al-A'lami) of South Africa could not take
this dishonesty and lying and refused to allow those satanic books to go unchallenged. The fear was that
innocent Muslims with weak faith and innocent minds could be influenced by the "Satanic Verses" of the

11

Rushdies of Deoband and our silence could be misconstrued as our inability to respond and contest the
Deobandi Wahaabi filth and vermin that was spewed from their fat bellies. Therefore, the Academy
solicited the aid of its founder and patron, Hazrat Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi, the famous Pakistani
research scholar and son of equally famous personality the Khateeb-e-A'zam and the Mujaddid (Reviver) of
the Maslak (Path) of Ahle Sunnat Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Shafee Okarvi (Allaah have mercy on him). The
distinguished Allamah Okarvi was handed three parts of those satanic books written by the Deo-inspired
(devil-inspired) Mullaas of Deoband for his glance and response.
Al Hamdu Lil Laah, through the initiative of our Academy, the readers are presented with this
work of great research value, scholarly discourse and of immense academic interest. This reply to
booklets "From Johannesburg to Bareilly" is so brutally jaw-breaking and overwhelmingly devastating
that it must surely cause a major tremor in the Deobandi Wahaabi camp. Hazrat Allamah Kaukab
Noorani Okarvi, who also holds a Doctorate in Literature, like a specialist surgeon, uses his pen like a
scalpel to conduct the perfect postmortem on a "Decomposed Deobandi corpse" and has ripped open with
great surgical skill the evil conspiracy, shameless hypocrisy, false allegations, lies, distortions and
misrepresentation of the facts perpetrated in their satanic books by these beggars of Jewish petro-dollars
and boot lickers of the corrupt Wahaabi-regime of Najd.
This refutation entitled "White and Black, (Deobandi-ism caught in its own trap) will turn the
readers "pale and red, pale with shock and red with anger. The Urdu version of this book has taken
Pakistan by storm and the publisher was compelled to go for a second printing. We urge every Muslim in
South Africa to try to obtain a copy of this invaluable book read it with objectivity and impartiality and
then judge for themselves its truths or falsehoods. The brilliant author, who holds five theological degrees
(Asnaad), three from Pakistan and two from the Arab world, is also a qualified journalist and research
scholar of repute, comprehensively writes in detail every single allegation against the great Imaam and
Mujaddid of Islaam and the Sawaad-e-A'zam, i.e. the greatest majority of Muslims of the world.
May Allaah Jalla Shaanuhu, in His infinite mercy shower His choicest blessings upon the author of
this great work and prolong his life, so that his knowledge and guidance could be of prolonged service to
all the Muslims of the world and his pen be wielded like a sword to destroy evil (baatil) wherever it raises
its head. Aameen Summa Aameen.

Allaahu Rabbu Muhammadin Sallaa Alaiehi Wa Sallamaa

Prologue
This auspiousness is greater for me than the sovereignty of seven worlds that I have been chosen to
defend the honor of the Prophethood (Alaiehi Sahaahabaa Wa Salaatu Wa Salaam). I think this is only a matter of
choice. That the Originator of Bounties has chosen me to praise the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam). This is such an honor for which, however elated one might feel, this feeling would still be
inadequate. Praising the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is the Command of my Merciful Rabb
who is Worthy of obedience.
The sacred tongue of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) prays for his praiser Hazrat
Hassaan (Allaah be pleased with him) like this, Allaahumma Aiey yidhu Bi Roohil Qudus (O Allaah, help him
with the Holy Spirit (Muslim Shareef: #151-2485). There are countless evidences to justify that Jibra'eel the

Trustworthy (Salutations on him) was created only for the respect of the Prophethood. Even today, that Rooh
e Qudus Holy spirit of Hazrat Jibra'eel (Salutations on him) helps the defenders of the honor of the
Prophethood (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). We have been told that the pleasure of Allaah Almighty is
gained by doing good deeds and the angels guards that person who is engaged in good deeds.
I, this humble person (physically) am on earth and Al hamdu lil Laah, (Allaah be praised) am on
heaven in regards to my beliefs. Therefore, I have the same belief as all the Resplendent (composed of
light) and Holy beings. Some ask those whose life is only remembering the Beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and praising the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) what tranquility of heart and
pleasure of mind they receive. Their belief is that this adoration will become the cause of their salvation
and this one sincerity will be their recommendation in the court of the Almighty Allaah. I, the dust from
beneath the feet of the Holy Prophet's (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) progeny has only one desire that every
moment of my life is spent in remembering the King of Madinah, the true Master (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam), and would be given any corner in the superior paradise beside his slaves and I do not desire for any
worldly thing.
Almighty Allaah Himself says, Wa Rafanaa Laka Zikrak (And We have exalted high for you
your remembrance.) (Chapter 94, verse 4). The Creator of the Universe has Himself elevated the remembrance
of His Beloved (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). What ability do we have to describe the beauty of this
Beloved of the Creator and what possible connection can our efforts and research have with the
enhancement of the greatness of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)? How can we the
worthless do anything to increase its integrity and splendor? This is not possible within the powers of us
dwellers of the world. Describing such is an attribute in the skies of the dignified trustworthy Jibra'eel. It
is the way of the One who has no partner (Wahdahu Laa Shareek), the Creator of the earth and the heavens,
Almighty Allaah. Only this is enough for us slaves that we are the pronouncers of the name of this Holy
Master (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). And to say anything in his praise is only possible with the ability of
our powers given by the graciousness of Allaah. And this Faqeer only says this, whatever ability we have

13

received and whatever potential has been bestowed, why should we not dedicate it in the name of our
Shelter, and our Place of refuge, the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)? Why should we not
devote all these nights and days in his remembrance, his narration and commemorations? I, a person
with little knowledge should be told that is there a bigger wazeefah (daily practice) or better rules of
etiquettes of life than this? Also Roomi, Jaami, Sadee and Raazi should be asked, why they spend all
their lives in finding the choicest words for the praise of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
They kept working hard day and night in the selection of words and styles so they could find such words
or manner which would be accepted in His (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) court. Whoever remembers the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) he has attachment with these unique, outstanding scholars
and Reciters of Praise. He is also attached with the Merciful Rabb as His book is entirely in praise of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). It is due to the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
and it is only completed with the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Quraan is the Kalaam
(Divines words) of Allaah Taaalaa and the greatest miracle of the Last Prophet of the World (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam). It is my belief if our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) did not
exist then there would be no Quraan and nothing else would have existed.
Besides always remembering the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) I (a speck of dust)
has reserved one more duty for himself that is beating the heads of these scandal-mongers who commit
the acts of crookedness and wickedness while addressing my Master (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). I have
one tongue and one pen and within the power and position that has been given to me I promise myself
and every one of those who have association with Him (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) that In Shaa Allaah
(with Allaahs Will) till my last breath I will keep on fighting bravely against all these abusive tongues,
who make unacceptable and unforgivable mistakes in mentioning my Beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam) and in the honor and dignity of this highly elevated illustrious Personality. Anyone who has
any doubt in the greatness and piousness of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam); there is surely
some defect in his senses and perception. Those who try to find fault in this magnificence and honor of
the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) are indeed devoid of the gem of humanity. They have not
even acknowledged my Beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
The irony is those who call themselves supporters and followers of Islaam even they carve abuse
for the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Their ways and methods are similar to those of Satan
(Shaietaan). It was only Satan (Shaietaan), who denied the status and greatness of Prophethood for the
first time. All of these Namrood, Fir'aun, Abu Jahal and Waleed bin Mugheerah are also the faces of
Satan.
The holy Qur'aan itself is a witness that to raise criticism against the beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is the way of the infidels and the idolaters and to describe the piety, holiness,
truthfulness and greatness of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is the Sunnah of Almighty
Allaah. And it is the command of the Laws of Qur'aan and the Sunnat that concessions due to certain
reasons can be made in obligations (Faraaiz). If it is not possible to perform Salaat while standing up,
then it can be performed while sitting down or even with gestures. But there is no concession in the
chapter of the respected honor of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). It is explained in the
holy Qur'aan: Almighty Allaah says to His gracious Beloved (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), "Even if in
view of your kind and dignified nature, your merciful qualities you would request Me to forgive your
insolents I will never forgive this disrespectful. The sin of disrespecting the Beloved (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
14

Wa Sallam) is absolutely unforgivable. What illicit talks have these disrespectful not uttered for the Holy

Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)..


Allaah may forgive me, and may again forgive me, they have established the knowledge of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) to be less than Satan (Shaietaan) the accursed. They have
compared Holy Prophet's (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) knowledge of the unseen with animals and the
demented. Who are these people who recite the Kalimah of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and
have doubts in the excellence of the Prophethood and the elegance of the truthfulness of the Holy
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)? What should we say about others (non-believers), they are not the
reciter of Kalimah but those who are decorating the pulpit and arch of Islaam by sitting on it and
mentioning the religion of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is their livelihood,
they should give some consideration that till how far their talk is reaching and it is entering the
boundaries of blasphemy. What is the status of respect and till where are you allowed? This claim of the
self-proclaimers of truth is also shaking the foundations. They are willing to cut that branch on which
they are nesting.
These people say very heart tormenting and heart breaking things. They do not realize that if
three words are said about any top leaders of their faction then what will happen to them; they might
lose their senses? They do not have any concern what happens to the hearts of the slaves of Allaah's
Beloved (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) when Allaah's Beloved (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is being
criticized and dishonored (our lives are sacrificed on him) This is entirely a matter of love and
devotion. It is an issue of adoration. Just try to mention the faults of the beloved in front of his lover; he
will smash the snout of this foul-mouthed person These disrespectfuls say, "The Beloved of Allaah
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) was a human like us. The Prophet is a Prophet. I, this servant would

challenge them to just show one Ghaus-e-Azam like my Shaah-e-Jeelaanee (Allaah be pleased with him)
amongst their faction of so-called Mashaaikh (their elders).
They say, The Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) committed the same kinds of mistakes
which are committed by ordinary people. And they say, What does the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam) know? Moreover these people say for Allaah Taaalaa, Allaah is not aware of all the unseen
at all the times. Whenever He needs to inquire the knowledge of any unseen, He finds out Allaah can
tell lies and He has stated lies. These (self-acclaimed) men of understanding and perception express
loudly such absurd .
Our belief is, any ordinary man cannot be a Prophet. Whoever is given Prophethood he does not
remain an ordinary person, he becomes a Prophet. A Prophet is from Allaah and Allaah is the Ultimate
Master. No one in the universe has the authority to declare anyone as a Prophet and no one from the
common people has this authority to announce one more Prophethood. The Prophet is only Prophet,
perfect and absolute Prophet, is an ambassador of Allaah; His messenger. Almighty Allaah has bestowed
this status to the one who is made worthy of this glorious status by Him, found him suitable, not to every
affluent or poor. Any person might devote every hair of his body for his Allaah, he might spend every
moment of his life in the remembrance of Allaah, he may have isolated himself from the world and might
have dovoed his complete life for the kingdom of Allaah, and even then he is not given the status of be-

15

ing a Prophet by Allaah. He has bestowed the status of the Prophethood, the excellence of Prophethood
to only those whom He has made his most favorites, the eminent in His court and after the beloved
Messenger, the Last Prophet of the World (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam, this succession has been stopped.
What greater proof can there be of His (Allaah's) special favors on to my master, the Beloved Mustafaa,
the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) than this?
Before writing this book, this servant has in my book "Deoband to Bareilly, (The Truth)
discussed the reality of the differences between the insolents of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam) and the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat and in my opinion I have also suggested the solutions to these
issues. That book was published by the Maulana Okarvi Academy (Al-Aalami) in English from South
Africa (in 1988 AD) and in Urdu from Pakistan, and with the Grace of Almighty Allaah it became very
popular and a cause of correcting the beliefs of thousands.
On my second tour to South Africa for preaching religion, this servant was given a set of three
booklets named "Johannesburg to Bareilly" by friends over there and they requested an explanation of
the contents of these booklets. Due to my daily engagement in South Africa, I was unable to read the
booklets with full concentration. Anyhow just by looking at the few pages the evidence was clear these
three booklets has been written against us the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaaat in a very blasmphemous and
slanderous language and are a bundle of accusations and fabrications. I had promised my friends in
South Africa that I would write a reply to these booklets. It is the grace of Almighty Allaah and the
kindness of the venerated and respected Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), that this servant of
Ahle Sunnat has succeeded in getting the first part of answers of these booklets published. It has been
my endeavor to show the faces of the authors of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and the adherents of
Deobandi-ism in their own mirror. The readers may kindly see all the answers to the accusations has
been given from the writings of the scholars of Deoband.
In my second visit to South Africa, I personally went for a final talk to dissolve the issues to
"Mia's Farm," the largest Centre of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis. And I said, I have all the books
of the scholars of Deoband available in my library. I, this servant of Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat will give
the proofs of validity of our beliefs and actions from these books, for which the Deobandi Wahaabis
Tableeghi scholars accuse us Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat of being polytheists and innovators.
This explanation is necessary as (I,) this servant is not an advocate of anxiety or disunity. For the
solidarity of the Islaamic world even my life is sacrificed. But solidarity should not mean silence filled
with compromise and hypocrisy. When the stubborn attitude of the fierce attack, to distort the facts, to
mislead the people and attack of the foundations is in progress then to remain silent is a sin in front of
me, a worst kind of sin. Besides this is not compromise, this is the act of the political caravan and it only
suits them.
If this is any conspiracy, then to uncover it is mandatory for me. The purpose of giving
references and footnotes from the writings of the scholars of Deoband is this, so that the inquirers of the
truth and the seeker of the facts should know very well from this book "White and Black" how dirty the
inside of these abusers is and exactly what is the conflict in the speech and actions of these people. This
present book is not a detailed answer of every line of the three parts of "Johannesburg to Bareilly," but Al

16

hamdu lil laah (Praise be of Allaah) this servant has encompassed the answers for all the accusations as a
whole.
It is a matter of the honor of our gracious Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). It is our
belief that he is more exceptional than all the worlds and all the creation. His love is eternal life. Our
heads (we are willing to sacrifice) are presented for his honor and dignity. Even to speak loudly in his
Excellency is offensive in front of us and to beat the heads of such offensive people, and to uncover them
is real Jihaad (holy war).
I hope with the Grace and Blessing of Almighty Allaah, this explanation of their mistake will be a
summon of concern for the advocates of Deobandi Wahaabism, besides it will be a reason to remain
steadfast on the right beliefs and acts in accordance to the Qur'aan and the Sunnat for the true believers
of Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat, In Shaa Allaahu Taaalaa.
Pray for me, that the Merciful Allaah may accept the efforts of this powerless for the preaching
and propagation of the religion of His beloved, the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). He may
grant me beneficial knowledge and open my heart for defending the dignity and honor of my Master
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Furthermore, He may grant me His success and approval to establish the
true as truth and the false as falsehood. Aameen

Bismil Laahir Wal Hamdu-lil-Laahi Was Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaa Rasoolil Laah
This servant of Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat has already presented a brief booklet
with the title of "Deoband to Bareilly (The Truth)" in the honor of my readers. Amongst the
contents of that book is the basic reality of the differences between the Sunnee (Barelvi) and the
Deobandi Wahaabis and the possible solution to end these differences.
I will not accept, is an incurable disease, anyhow every wise person, who favors the
truth and who likes honesty will surely, with the contents of that book, be aware as to what the
truth is and the differences that exists between these two groups are definite and based on
principles. It is the grace and blessing of Almighty Allaah, this book (of this servant) has
received immense popularity and has also become a cause of correcting the beliefs of thousands
of people and to remain steadfast on the truth. The reason of this was not my words or my style
but it was merely the power of the Truth and the graciousness of the Gracious Holy Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).

The adversaries and opponents have also said, What kind of service is this to Islaam? If
one wants to work then do it against the non Muslims. Do the work for the development of the
society etc, etc. It is amazing if the same thing is said to them then their forehead is wrinkled.
Anyhow in reply to this, the first thing I would like to say is, If the foundation of enmity and
opposition of the opponents is based on stubbornness and untruthfulness than such statements
are not effective because the real secret hidden behind these statements is, these (the opponents)
do not want to be exposed. Also their evil activities are not noticed so that their business
would continue. Otherwise it is obvious that after knowing their reality, the people would not
become their associates. Secondly, perhaps the opponents are used to seeing only one side of
the picture and also due to their short sightedness they are not able to see completely and
correctly. If they were to see both sides correctly then there would be no cause of differences
because it is not easy to deny the facts. And thirdly, they are in need of their self imposed
masters and are their yes-men. They are also devoid of any qualities of wisdom, intellect,
perception and good conduct. If they have it somewhat then they are not allowed to use it
because if a person is sold in someone elses hand then what is the authority of his own opinion
or choice? Fourthly, it is foolishness to expect positive thinking from someone who has become
habitual of negative thinking. And finally it is pointless to expect an honest opinion from those
whose habit is to avoid reality and to see their opponents in their own mirror.
It is a pity these Deobandi Wahaabis do not have the courage to acknowledge the truth
even after being aware of the exemplary services of the rightly guided scholars of the Ahle
Sunnat Wa Jamaaat. It is evident from the writings and the speeches of the scholars of
18

Deoband they do not have any concern with good conduct. Nevertheless if you ask the truth,
we, Ahle Sunnat, are not a loss as when they make us the target of their abuse, a silent heartiest
pleasure is felt that at least during the time we are their topic, for this period we become a cause
of stopping them from being disrespectful and dishonoring the blessed grandeur of the
unblemished personality of the beloved of Almighty Allaah the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam). Is this achievement not enough? Instead as far as I am personally concerned, I only
desire this much that they may say anything to me which they want. But they should not
challenge the honor of our faith by being disrespectful and insolent to the exalted dignity of the
beloved of the Creator (Allaah) the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
Who am I and what is my reality? Who can in this whole universe claim that he is fully
aware of the magnificence of Beloved Mustafaa (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)? Those who call
Allaah's beloved Prophet, who is desired by the Universe, a human like themselves or merely a
human, these foul-mouthed (Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis) cannot even justly acknowledge the
powers, capabilities and special traits of a single human, nevertheless they would explain the
limitation etc. of the beloved of Allaah the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). The highly
learned people like Hazrat Baayazeed Bistaami, Maulana Ruum, Shaiekh Sadee, Maulana Jaami
and Shaiekh-e-Muhaqqiq (Chief of the Researcher) Abdul Haqq Muhaddis Dehlvi (Allaah have mercy
on them) have accepted their humbleness, but these slandering insolents openly say and write that
"The Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) was merely a human like us." (Maaazal Laah)
(Allaah forbid). We the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat only know this much:

"Wo Khudaa Nahee Ba Khudaa Nahee, Wo Magar Khudaa Se Judaa Nahee,


Wo Hey Kyaa Magar, Wo Hey Kyaa Nahee, Yeh Muhib Habeeb Ki Baat Hai
(He is not Allaah, by Allaah he is not, yet he is not separate from Allaah
But what he is, what he is not, this matter is between the Lover and the beloved)

"Tum Zaat-e-Khudaa Say Na Juda Ho Na Khudaa Ho

Allaah Hee Ko Ma loom Hai Kyaa Jaaniye Kyaa Ho


(You are not separate from the Being of Allaah neither you are Allaah
It is known only to Allaah, what would we know what are you)

Teray Tu Wasf Aieb-e-Tanaahi Say Hay Baree


Haieraa Huun Meray Shaah May Kyaa Kyaa Kahoo Tujhay

19

(Your attributes are free from the blemishes of limitations


I am amazed my King (due to your excellences) what should I call you)

Allaah Ki Sar Taa Ba Qadam Shaan Hayn Yeh


In Saa Naheen Insaan Wo Insaan Hayn Yeh
Quraan Tou Ieemaan Bataataa Hai Inhayn
Ieemaan Yeh Kehtaa Hai Mayree Jaan Hayn Yeh.
(From head to toe he is the splendor of Allaah
He is such a person no one is like him
The Quraan describes him as the belief (Ieemaan)
The Ieemaan says he is my soul

Laa Yumkinus-Sanaau Kamaa Kaana Haq-quhu


Baad Az Khudaa Buzurg Tuee Qissah Mukhtasar
It is not possible to fully encompass your praise
To make it short you are the most highest after Allaah
How will these short-sighted people who are looking for mistakes see the splendid deeds
of the true Scholars of the Ahle Sunnat? A famous Persian verse is:

"Gar nah Beenad Barooz-e-Shapparah Chashm,


Chashma'e-Aaftaab Raa cheh Gunaah"

20

What is the fault of the sun, if the bat cannot see the brightness of the sun (day)?
If I had not attained the blessings of my most respected teachers and the divines then
maybe I would have also stained my tongue and pen like these people belonging to the
Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi school of thought. But then this is the great blessing and favor of
Almighty Allaah that He has saved me, this sinful from such bad deeds. It is my only plea to
Almighty Allaah that He may grant me the highest degree of purity in faith and good conduct.
Aameen.
These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, slaves of the British and the Hindus, can only
praise and be thankful to an infidel woman, Indira Gandhi. Every enemy of Almighty Allaah is
very dear to them. They have a natural animosity against every beloved of Almighty Allaah.
Every person has his own fortune. We are thankful to our Creator and the Master, Allaah
Kareem that He has filled us with His love and the love of His beloved ones. Undoubtedly, this
is not an ordinary blessing; it is only Allaahs graciousness. Even if we are thankful to Him
every moment of our lives even then we would not be able to fulfill His dues. I pray to
Almighty Allaah that He may keep us alive in the love of His dear ones and accept our service
for the defense of the honor of His dear ones. And He would resurrect us in the slavery of His
dear ones. Aameen.
Almighty Allaah has bestowed human with perfect intellect. This intellect is for thinking
and understanding. Every believer knows that Sahaabi (Companion) is a person who, in his
worldly life, as a true believer has seen and met the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and
has also died as a true believer (on Ieemaan). And the benefit of this meeting and seeing is that
a non-companion despite all his excellences cannot attain the status of a companion (Sahaabi). It
is obvious if such status is attained for only seeing the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
than what will be his own station and status of this Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) by
himself! But this matter is beyond the understanding of these who are foolish. Because as they
are deprived of faith than how can their intellect stay with them?

Khudaa Jab Deen Laytaa Hai, Himaaqat Aaahee Jaatee Hai


(When Allaah deprives one of faith, foolishness surely comes along)

21

May Allaah Subhaanahu save us from the evil and evilness of all those who disrespect
and the disrespectful and from every faithless and faithlessness, Aameen
This servant of the Ahle-Sunnat has visited South Africa twice since writing this, friends
has given me three parts of the booklet "Johannesburg to Bareilly" which were published on
behalf of, "The Council for the Propagation of the Sunnat of Islaam, P.O. Box 749, Lenasia-1820,
Johannesburg, (South Africa). The name of the author of these booklets is not written on them.
But on the last page one name Suleman Cassimis written. It is not known who the author of
this writing is.(*)
Whereas it is written on the cover pages of the booklets: This booklet is an answer
to a recent pamphlet published by the Barelvis which was printed in Pretoria and
had a Durban address on it. This booklet clarifies the misinterpreted and true beliefs of the scholars of the Deoband." I have seen all three booklets and I kept wondering
these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis who proclaim they are the rightly guided scholars do not
fear Allaah at all nor do they worry about their ultimate end. Otherwise, this would not have
been their habit.
Here I must confess, I have not seen that pamphlet of Sunnee Barelvis which is written
in reply to the booklets "Johannesburg to Bareilly." Anyhow, it was not necessary to read the
pamphlet allegedly issued by the Barelvis after going through the contents of these booklets,
Johannesburg to Bareilly." Because for more than two decades I have been fully aware of the
style, writings and speeches of the self-proclaimed rightly-guided" scholars of Deoband.
Those who have viewed the series of booklets, "Johannesburg to Bareilly" they may also
notice the tone, voice and style of the author. Call it the ill-fatedness of these Deobandis or their
negligence, the things for which they have polluted the tips of their pens against Alaa Hazrat,
Mujaddid-e-Deen-o-Millat (Reviver of the Religion and Nation) Imaam of Ahle-Sunnat, Maulana
Shaah Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), the very same things are written by
the pens of their own senior self-proclaimed, rightly guided true scholars against the Deobandi
Wahaabis and are present in their own writings. The only difference is that if the Imaam-eAhle-Sunnat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) say these thing than he is abused and when the same
things are said by the scholars of Deoband than the Deobandis do not remember any fairness or
justice. By fulfilling the demands of equity and justice if they really consider their senior
mullaas rightly-guided scholars, then why do they not put the two writings in front of
______________________

(*)Surely the writer of these booklets must be some (so-called) scholar of the Deobandi Wahaabi
who has no confidence in his writing; meaning he has no confidence and belief in his faith therefore he
has not disclosed his name for the fear of being defamed. He must be a hypocrite who has desired to
hide his real face.

22

themselves and give an honest verdict and why do they not believe the verdicts of their own
elders?
If I wanted, I could also present all those statements in front of the readers which the
books of the senior scholars of Deoband are filled with. But my honor of faith does not allow
me to copy all of such filthy writing.(*) The readers will wonder what these statements are. You
must have heard the word, pornography but in front of the statements of these so-called
contractors of faith and religion, these Deobandi Wahaabi scholars, the word pornography
seems flimsy too.
Dear readers, my aim is not to break hearts or to speak lies. (Maaazal Laah, Allaah forbid) I speak the truth that these hypocrites, The sellers of barley in the name of wheat; meaning
who cheat people, (Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis) whatever they say or do under the
covering of the propagating of religion is a cause of disgrace and offensiveness. It is amazing
that they like to explain wrong statements but they do not like to call what is wrong as wrong.
Dear readers, every man of wisdom, thoughtfulness, intellect and consciousness knows
that an abuse is an abuse. You can give thousands of explanations but an abuse cannot be
called a good supplication. We also say the same thing to the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi
people that according to the verdict of their own scholars, until they do not accept the
blasmphemous and infidel writings of their own elders as blasmphemy and infidelity until they
do not deny being the accepters and the believers of these writings, the controversy will
continue.
There is a famous anecdote: Some people of a village went to a religious scholar and told
him, We have a well of water in our village and a dog has fallen in it and has died. Tell us what
is the way of purifying the water of this well? The religious scholar told them to draw a
certain number of buckets of water from the well and the water will be purified. The villagers
went and drew the given amount of water but the bad smell continued in the water. They went
to the religious scholar and explained the situation again. The religious scholar inquired, Have
you taken out the dead dog from the well or is it still in the well? They said, We have not
taken out the dog. The religious scholar said, Until you do not take out the dog from the well,
till then no matter how much water you draw out the foul smell will still continue. First take
out the dog from the well, then draw out that amount of water and then see if the stink is
dispelled or not!
Dear readers similarly, such is the case of these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis. Until
they do not address the real reason of the controversy, unless they do not deny being the

compulsion).

believers and accepters of infidelic and blasmphemous writings, they may give millions of
explanations but the dispute will remain as it is.
Along with this, speaking lies, false explanations, fabricating, hoodwinking people and
the despising efforts of deceiving others as well are their habits. Perhaps they think that
everyone else living in the world is deaf and blind. See some examples of their lies and decide
for yourselves how great liars these Deobandi Wahaabis are.
On page 2 of part 1 of "Johannesburg to Bareilly," it is written: "The Ulama of
Deoband had no contact whatsoever with [Muhammad Ibne] Abdul Wahhaab Najdi
[Chief of the Wahaabi faction]. They did not study under him, neither carry out his
mission, neither was he their spiritual guide leader nor did they ever meet him. In
fact the Deoband Rather the Ulama of Deoband are of the Ahle Sunnat Wal
Jamaaah, who follow the Hanafi school of thought."(*)
In this statement it has been proven for the scholars of Deoband that they are not
Wahaabi and they have nothing to do with the Imaam of the Wahaabis Muhammad Ibne Abdul
Wahaab Najdi. Its reply is presented by the writings of the scholars of Deoband themselves.
Please read:
In the book of famous debater of Deoband, Muhammad Manzoor Nu'maani, "Shaiekh
Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahaab Aur Hindustan Kay Ulamaa-e-Haqq (The Rightly-guided Scholars of
India and Shaiekh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahaab) (printed Qadeemi Kutub Khaanah, Aaram Baagh,
Karachi 1978 AD) which has been published more than 10 years ago. This book also has the
endorsement and attestation of Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariya Kandhalvi and Qaari
Muhammad Taiyyib Saahib. It is proven in this book that there is no ideological difference etc.
between Shaiekh Muhammad bin Abdul Wahaab Najdi and the scholars of Deoband. Rather
these Najdi Wahaabi Deobandi are all the same. I am not giving my review on this book of
Nu'maani Saahib in my writing. My aim is to only prove the lies of the author of
Johannesburg to Bareilly in front of my readers so the readers would know how many lies
the author of Johannesburg to Bareilly favors. Their scholars and elders are trying to prove
themselves as Wahaabi while the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly," who is sitting in South
Africa, has no time to spare other than only writing and speaking lies. Dear readers, view some
other writings of the elderly scholars of Deoband:

_______________________
(*)Meaning it is also an accepted and established fact in front of them that those are called
Wahaabi who are in some way associated with Ibne Abdul Wahaab or are his followers and believers.

24

"This title (Wahaabi) means a person who is subservient or favorable to the creed
of Ibne Abdul Wahaab."
(Imdaad-ul-Fataawaa, p. 233, vol 5, printed in Thaanah Bhavan)

The Imaam of the Deobandis Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi says, "The followers of
Muhammad Ibne Wahaab (Najdi) are called Wahaabi. Their beliefs were excellent and their
creed was Hambalee. Although they were harsh in temperament, he and his followers are
good."
(Fataawaa Rasheediyah, p. 111, vol-1, printed Kutub Khaanah Raheemiyah, Dehli 1363 AH, Taaleefaat-e-Rasheediyah, p.
242, printed Idaarah-e-Islaamiyaat, Lahore)

Dear readers, you have seen the verdict of Gangohi Saahib about Ibne Abdul Wahaab Najdi.
Now see the statements of the scholars of Deoband themselves and read what they have
written about Ibne Abdul Wahaab Najdi and then decide yourselves who is honest amongst
them and who is a liar.
It is stated in Al-Muhannad, the book on beliefs of the scholars of Deoband page 18:
(printed Kutub Khaanah Azeeziyah'Deoband)

"Question number 12: Muhammad Ibne Abdul Wahaab Najdi considered it halaal
(lawful) to shed the blood of Muslims, taking away their money and to abuse their honor. He
would consider everyone else as polytheist and was disrespectful to the grandeur of the elders.
What is your view about him and do you consider dishonoring the Ahle Qiblah (all Muslims)
and elders as infidels lawful? Or what is your opinion?
Answer: Our view is the same which is given by the writer of Durr-e-Mukhtaar. (Ibne
Abdul Wahaab and his followers), the Khawaarij, are a famous group of people who waged war
against the Imaam. On this explanation that they considered the Imaam guilty of falsehood,
meaning infidelity; guilty of such disobedience which justifies killing. On this interpretation
they considered taking our lives and wealth as lawful and making our women captives. (He
further says) The verdict which applies to them is of rebels. (He also said this, We do not
dishonor them because this action is from interpretation though it is only a faulty one.) And
Allamah Shaami, said in the marginal notes, "Like it happened in our times by the followers of
Ibne Abdul Wahaab. They came from Najd and besieged Haraamaien Shareefaien. They called
themselves as Hambalee creed but it was their belief that only they were Muslims. Whoever is
against their beliefs, he is a polytheist and due to this they considered it justified to kill the
Ahle Sunnat and the scholars of the Ahle Sunnat, to such an extent that Almighty Allaah
ruined their superiority."

25

In "Fataawaa Rasheediyah," it is stated their (Najdis) beliefs are excellent, while in "AlMuhannad," it is stated only they (Najdis) are Muslims and whoever is against their beliefs is a
polytheist. The Ahle Sunnat were against their beliefs, therefore in front of them, the killing of
Ahle Sunnat and the scholars of the Ahle-Sunnat is lawful. So the result that came out is that
in front of Gangohi Saahib to consider all Ahle-Sunnat as polytheists and to kill them is lawful
and permitted and this is good belief. Hence Gangohi Saahib says, He and his followers are
good. While all the other scholars of Deoband say, They are Khaarijees and Baaghees [rebels].
It is learnt that in front of Gangohi Saahib, the Khaarijees and the Baaghees [rebels] are good
people.
Furthermore consider this, Husaien Ahmad Saahib Madni, Principal of Daar-ul uloom
Deoband says, "Gentlemen, Muhammad Ibne Abdul Wahaab Najdi appeared from Najd in
Arab in the early 13th Century. And since he had wrong beliefs and evil thoughts, he waged
war against the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat and forced his evil thoughts on them. He considered
it halaal (lawful) to seize their properties as the spoils of war. To kill them was considered acts
of bringing blessings and earning rewards. He particularly afflicted severe pain to the people
of Haraamaien (Makkah and Madinah) and in general to the people of Hijaaz. He used
extremely foul language against the grandeur of the respected pious people and the earlier holy
people. Due to his severe violence many people had to flee from the holy cities of Makkah and
Madinah.

Thousands of people were martyred by him and his troops. In short he was a tyrant,
rebel, bloodthirsty and an evil person."
(Ash-Shahaabus Saaqib, p. 42)

Now, if Gangohi Saahib is speaking the truth, than Husaien Ahmad Saahib Madni
becomes a liar and if Husaien Ahmad Madni is to be called honest than Gangohi Saahib would
be considered as dishonest. The decision depends on the followers of these two men.
Gangohi Saahib says, The beliefs of these (Najdis) were excellent. How excellent were
they? See its explanation in the writing of the headmaster of Deoband, Husaien Ahmad Saahib
Madni who has listed in detail a series of examples of some of the beliefs of these Najdis in his
book, Ash Shahaabus Saaqib.
(Printed Kutub Khaanah Ashrafiyah, Raashid Company, Deoband)

26

Beliefs of Wahaabi Najdi


1. "It is the belief of Muhammad Ibne Abdul Wahaab that all the people of the world and the
Muslims from all places are polytheists and infidels. To kill them, fight with them and snatch
their money from them is allowed and permissible yet it is mandatory.
(Ash Shahaabus Saaqib, p. 43)

2. Till even today, the belief of the Najdis and his followers is that the life of the Prophets
(Salutation on them) is limited only to the period during which they were on this earth. After that,
they and the other true believers are equal in death.
( p. 45)

3. These people write that having a vision of the blessed Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam],
the visitation to his blessed tomb and seeing his sacred abode are unlawful innovations etc.
He also considers it unlawful and foolish to even travel in that direction with this intention,
Laa Tushadd ur Rihaala Illaa Ilaa Salaasata Masaajidin Some of them also give it the
status of adultery to travel for the sake of paying a visit to the blessed tomb. (Maaazal
Laah) Allaah forbid.
(p. 45)

4. The Wahaabis use the most blasmphemous language in respect of the Magnificence of
Prophethood and the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). And they consider themselves
like the personality of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). They also give very little
consideration to the era of his preaching.. They think that now the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has no right on us nor do we receive any benefit or favor from his Holy
persona after his departing. Therefore due to this, they consider it unlawful to plea through
his mediation after departing. It is the saying of their elders, ((Maaazal Laah Summa
Maaazal Laah) Allaah forbid, again Allaah forbid). They say, The stick of our hand gives
us more benefit than the glorious personality of the King of the universe, the Holy Prophet
[Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam]. We can ward off a dog from it but with the Holy personality of the
Holy Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] we cannot even do this much.
(p. 47)

5. The Wahaabis are against performing mystic rites and Sufi practices of saints, meditating,
engaging in the remembrance of Allaah, thinking about Him, taking the allegiance of the

27

spiritual guides, the whole system of spiritual guides, having a mental rapport with the
spiritual guides, believing in annihilation and regaining permanent life and seclusion etc.
They consider all these practices as useless, shameful, bad innovations and demeaning.
(p. 59, Ash-Shahaabus Saaqib)

6. The Wahaabi consider following any particular Imaam as polytheism and against the
Prophethood. They use wretched and wicked language in the respect of the four Imaams and
their followers due to which they have become the enemies of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaaat.
Hence the non-followers of the four Imaams in India are the followers of this wicked group.
Although while expressing their proofs they identify themselves as Hambalee but in many
matters they do not follow Imaam Ahmad Bin Hanmbal (Allaah have mercy on him) at all.
(p. 62, 63, Ash-Shahaabus Saaqib)

7. Through verses like this, Ar-Rahmaanu Alal 'Arshis Tawaa (Chapter 20, verse 5) etc., these
Wahaabis try to prove Allaah occupies a throne physically, Due to which it is mandatory to
accept the proof of His dimensions and therefore, His bodily presence.
(p. 64, Ash-Shahaabus-Saaqib)

8. The Wahaabis of Arabia have often been heard to harshly criticize the expression, "As
Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaieka Yaa Rasoolal Laah" (Peace and salutation on you, O Allaah's
Messenger)," and most sarcastically reject and ridicule its use, and use the most inappropriate
language against the people of the Haraamaien who use such expressions.
(p. 65, Ash-Shahaabus-Saaqib)

9. The wicked Wahaabis harshly and repeatedly criticize sending peace and salutation to the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and consider the routine, recitation and making a
daily practice of Dalaa'ilul Khaieraat, Qaseedah Burdah and Qaseedah Hamziyah etc. as most
blasmphemous and disliked. They also consider certain couplets of Qaseedah Burdah to be
downright blasphemous etc. For example this verse:


Yaa Ashrafal Khalqi Maali Man Aloozu Bihi,
Siwaaka Inda Huloolil Haadisil 'Amami

28

(O the best of the creations, I have no one to seek refuge from beside you
I have no one to look up to in the time of ultimate calamity (death or resurrection)
(p. 66, Ash Shahaabus Saaqib)

10. Except for the knowledge of the Laws of Shareeat, these Wahaabis consider the last Holy
Prophet (Alaiehis Salaatu Was Salaam) was devoid of all hidden and true knowledges etc.
(p. 67, Ash-Shahaabus Saaqib)

11. The Wahaabis consider the narration of the birth of the Holy Prophet (Alaiehis-Salaatu-WasSalaam) itself to

be a very dreadful and outrageous innovation."


(p. 67, Ash-Shahaabus Saaqib)

Dear readers, the eleven beliefs (articles of faith) mentioned above are presented as
examples believed by Ibne Abdul Wahaab Najdi and his followers. They are written by the
Head Master of the Deoband, Husaien Ahmad Saahib Madni himself. These are considered
excellent beliefs in the view of Gangohi Saahib. It is proven the most polluted, most wicked and
altogether blasphemous beliefs are considered excellent by them and the virtuous and Islaamic
beliefs are infidelity, polytheism and innovation in their eyes.

(vol-1, p. 45 printed by Idaarah-e-Taaleefaat-e-Ashrafiyah, Multan 1985 AD)

29

It states a story of the days when Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib was a teacher at the
Madrasah Jaamia-ul-uloom, Kanpur. A few women living in the neighborhood of the madrasah
brought some sweets so that the Holy Qur'aan could be recited and rewards be forwarded. The
students of the madrasah did not forward the rewards; they just gulped down the sweets. This
provoked a huge fight. When Thanvi Saahib was informed about the fight he came and told the
people in a loud voice, "Brother, Wahaabis live here. Do not bring anything here for Faatihah
forwarding rewards) and Niyaaz (offering)."
On page 202 of the biography of Muhammad Yoosuf Kandhalvi, printed in Nadwatululamaa Lucknow, it is stated, We are staunch Wahaabis."

One of the elders of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariya
Saahib declares, "I am a stauncher Wahaabi than all of you."
(Biography of Muhammad Yoosuf Kandhalvi, p. 204, author Muhammad Saani Hasni and Manzoor Nu'maani)

(It is stated for the attention of the readers that they have already read that the Principal
of Madrasah Deoband, Janaab Husaien Ahmad Madni, has described the Wahaabis as a "band
of evil, foul, filthy people and disrespectful. And Janaab Ashraf Ali Thanvi and Shaiekh
Muhammad Zakariya and others are very proudly calling themselves Wahaabis. By this
acceptance the readers will themselves realize the truth of their reality.)
The Deobandis Wiseman (Hakeem-ul-Ummat) Thanvi Saahib, writes in his letter to the
Imaam of Deobandis Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Saahib, "Here, a number of scholars still
consider me a Wahaabi. Even though some scholars from outside came and told the people,
Do not be cheated this man. (Thanvi) is a Wahaabi. But telling them did not have an effect
since I was only practically (superficially) agreeing with the public. But now I do not intend to
participate, even practically, so surely I will face some difficulties." Thanvi Saahib used to
participate in the gatherings of the Meelaad in hypocrisy and fabrication so that the ordinary
people would not consider him a Wahaabi. But now Thanvi Saahib himself is saying that he
will not be attending Meelaad congregations. Therefore now it will be confirmed to everybody
that "this man is actually a Wahaabi, till now he was hidden."
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, p. 135, vol-1, printed Idaarah-e-Islaamiyaat, Lahore)

Janaab Abdul Hasan Ali Nadvi in his book "Deeni Da'wat" has mentioned this
incident concerning the founder of Tableeghi Jamaaat, Muhammad Ilyaas Saahib. He says, In
1938, when he had gone to Hijaaz for Hajj, he met the Sultan of Najd with his delegation in
connection to the Tableeghi Jamaaat. Regarding the preparations for the meeting with the
Sultan, he wrote,

30

"It was decided that first the aims and objectives of the Jamaaat would be written
down in Arabic and then it will be presented to the Sultan. Maulana Ihtishaam-ul-Hasan met
Abdullaah Bin Hasan Shaiekh-ul Islaam and Shaiekh Ibne Bullhead, on his own. After two
weeks (on March 14, 1938 AD), Maulana (Muhammad Ilyaas) along with Haaji Abdul laah
Dehlvi, Shaiekh-ul-Mutawwi-feen, (Chief of the Pilgrims) Abdur Rahmaan Mazhar and
Maulvee Ihtishaam-ul-Hasan Saahib went to meet the Sultan. The king of the country came
down from his throne and received them with great honor and seated the honored Indian
Muslims near to him. They presented their schedule for preaching. On this the king lectured
them intellectually for about forty minutes on the Oneness of Allaah, the Book and Sunnah
and on the need of following the Shareeat. After this, he came down from his throne and
bade them farewell. The next day, the Sultan had to go to Najd so he left for Riyadh.
(Muhammad Ilyaas and Deeni Da'wat," p. 97, 98 printed by Majlis Nashriyaat-e-Islaam, Karachi)

After obtaining the testimony of approval from the Sultaan of Najd, now see
what their activities on the policies were. They write:
"Ihtishamul Hasan Saahib prepared a brief note on the objectives of their preaching
and presented it to Shaiekh-ul Islaam (Chief Justice) Abdullaah Bin Hasan, (who is the
progeny of Ibne Abdul Wahaab Najdi). The Maulana (Muhammad Ilyaas) and Maulvee
Ihtishaam Saahib also went to see him. He honored and rewarded them greatly and
supported every matter and orally promised sympathy and support for them."
(Deeni Da'wat," p. 98)

Keep the spirit of justice in front of you and then reflect. Anyone can clearly realize in
describing the whole proceeding, what was the cause of hindrance in disclosing the details of
the Arabic text of the aims and objectives of the Tableeghi Jamaaat which was prepared in
Arabic language for the presentation to the Sultan of Nadj? Now even after covering with
thousands of veils, the facts cannot be hidden that the aims and objectives much lauded at the
king's palace and the matters of preaching and inviting for which promises of total support
and sympathy was done: they were exactly the ones for which the Najdis nation had risen.
The places of undying love and belief and the eternal monument of Islaam were completely
destroyed. Because an ordinary man with very little intelligence can also understand that if
the aims and objectives were even slightly different from those of the Najdi faith, the Shaiekhul-Islaam and Chief Justice of the Najdi government, (who had the blood of Ibne Abdul
Wahaab Najdi flowing in his veins) would have never assured any help or support.
Look at another fresh proof of complete similarity between the Wahaabi Najdi group
and the Tableeghi Jamaaat in thoughts and beliefs and the mutual co-operation between

31

them. After the story of Janaab Muhammad Ilyaas, now read the story which took place
during the caliphate of his son, Muhammad Yoosuf Saahib.
While narrating the story of the delegation of the Tableeghi Jamaaat which had gone
to Najd from Delhi under the leadership of Janaab Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi; the biographer of
Janaab Muhammad Yoosuf Kandhalvi writes (and here you will read about the deep
relationship that existed between leaders of the Najdi Government and this delegation):
"Shaiekh Umar Bin Al-Hasan, the descendants of Al-Shaiekh is the progeny of Shaiekh
Muhammad Ibne Abdul Wahaab (Najdi). Therefore he is also the brother of the Chief Justice
and Shaiekh-ul-Islaam of the Saudi kingdom, Shaiekh Abdul Laah bin Hasan, (who had an
agreement with Muhammad Ilyaas) and the head of the department of Dos and Donts
(Amar Bil Ma'roof wa Nahee Anil Munkar) who also had a very close relationship with the
crown prince of the kingdom and was his special aid; good relations were established
between them. Therefore those who tried to create doubts about the (Tableeghi) Jamaaat due
to this assurance and preface the creators of the doubts could not have any success.
(Biography of Muhammad Yoosuf, p. 431, printed Majlis Sahaafat-o-Nashriyaat Daar-ul-uloom Nadvatul Ulamaa,
Lucknow)

After this, view another clear proof of the ideological affinity between these two: He
writes, "We also met the elder brother of Shaiekh Umar Bin Al-Hasan, Shaiekh Abdul Laah
Ibnul Hasan (with whom Maulana Ilyaas had an agreement) many times. He met us with
great kindness. Some people tried to give this impression about (Tableeghi) Jamaaat that this
Jamaaat has "wrong beliefs" and they conveyed this complaint to the scholars. Due to our
contacts with the scholars and the meetings with influential people, the effects of the
complaints ended."
(Muhammad Yoosuf, p. 431)

How these people must have pleaded to clear the allegation of having wrong beliefs
before the Jurists (Qaazis), scholars and the officials of Najd! This is not necessary to explain,
because the nature of a religious mind is such that even a man having wrong beliefs does not
consider the other person having right beliefs correct untill that person is proven to have similar beliefs to himself. And in this explanation this point is clearly realized that the elites of the
Najd nation already believed that these people do not have wrong beliefs, rather they had
similar beliefs. Hence the effects of those who complained about them as people with wrong
beliefs were dismissed.
The readers must have recognized by themselves the Deobandi Tableeghis are also
Wahaabis and the acceptance of connection between the Najdi Wahaabi written by their own
pen is also viewed by the readers.

32

On the other hand at the occasion of death of the former President of Pakistan,
General Muhammad Ziaa-ul-Haqq, the scholars of Deoband who call themselves Hanaafee
openly violated their own faith. They held funeral prayers for him in absentia (Ghaaibaanah
Namaaz-e-Janaazah) and also prayed for his redemption after reading the Namaaz-e-Janaazah, did
Quraan Khuwaani (recitation of the Holy Qur'aan) as well and Faatihah Khawani (forwarding
rewards) on the soyem (3rd day Faatihah) of the President of Pakistan was held at the tomb of
Hazrat Daata Ganj Bakhsh, Saiyyidinaa Alee Hujweeri (Allaah be pleased with him). They also
attended his chehlum (Forty days Faatihah) gathering. (Please see my pamphlet, "Apni Ada
Daiekh" for confirmation with pictures and newspaper clippings.)
Not only this but the scholars of Deoband in Pakistan take out processions and hold
rallies on the occasion of Meelaad-un-Nabee (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) (celebrating the birth of
the Holy Prophet). They participate in Mahaafil-e-Meelaad organized at official and non-official
levels.
They take out well organized procession on the death anniversary of Hazrat Abu Bakr
Siddeeq (Allaah be pleased with him). They also commemorate the days of the death anniversaries of
Khulafaa-e-Raashideen and other companions every year and give great publicity to the dates
and places of the scheduled meetings. Besides this, they also appeal for commemorating them
on official and non-official levels. They issue posters regularly on the occasion of the death
anniversaries of their senior scholars. On their death anniversaries, special arrangements are
made for reciting the Holy Qur'aan, forwarding rewards etc. and Niyaaz.
Two famous Deobandi scholars participated in the ceremony of giving bath to the holy
shrine of Hazrat Daata Ganj Bakhsh (Allaah be pleased with him). And to receive blessing they poured
the water used for bathing on their faces. The scholars of Deoband themselves organized
meetings for the remembrance of the martyrdom of Hazrat Imaam Husaien (Allaah be pleased with
him) and also attended the meetings organized by the Shi'ites. They place chaadars (cloths) on
the graves of Auliyaa-e-Kiraam (the Friends of Allaah) and go to the gathering of their Urs (to
celebrate the anniversaries of their death). The religious and political leader of Deobandi
Wahaabis, Mufti Mahmood Saahib laid down a chaadar (cloth) and flowers on the holy grave of
Hazrat Daata Ganj Bakhsh (Allaah be pleased with him), and also distributed halwah (sweet). If the
scholars of Deoband Wahaabis do all these things then a fatwaa (verdict) is not pronounced on
them but if the Sunnees (Barelvi) do the same things then verdicts of polytheism, innovation
and prohibition start showering on them from the scholars of Deoband. Not only this but just
see what the famous scholar of Deoband Ihtishaamul Haqq Thanvi Saahib has done:
The Aga Khani (Ismaaeeli faction) are considered unanimously out of Islaam. Thanvi
Saahib recited the Qur'aan and said Faatihah (forwarding rewards) for the (third) Aga Khan,

33

prayed for his forgiveness, attended condolence meetings and in his speech declared him as a
benefactor of Islaam.(*)
Now what do the self-appointed rightly guided Wahaabi scholars of Deoband say
about their own Thanvi Saahib? If the Sunnees (Barelvi) celebrate Giyaarahveen Shareef for the
Ieesaal-e-Sawaab of Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Ghaus-e-A'zam (Allaah be pleased with him), it is declared
against Sharee'at, but if the scholars of Deoband hold Qur'aan recital sessions and read Faatihah
for the Ieesaal-e-Sawaab of even a non-Muslim then a fatwaa (verdict) is not issued against
them? If the festival of the Daarul-ul-uloom Deoband is celebrated and these celebrations are
inaugurated by an infidel woman then there is no fatwaa (verdict). But if the celebrations are
made for the arrival of the Messenger of Allaah (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) to the world than
the fatwaa (verdict) of polytheism, innovation and prohibition is imposed.
Is this the standard of truth in front of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi preachers? If
their own people commit the same acts for even non-Muslims even then they remain Mumin
(true Muslim) and rightly guided scholars. But if the Sunnees having correct beliefs do the
same things for the loved ones of Allaah according to the Sharee'at and Sunnat then they are
called polytheists and innovators. If these acts of deceiving policies of Wahaabi Deobandi
Tableeghi sellers of religion are not mockery of Allaah then what is it? Just view another
proof of the dishonesty of the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly":
On page 44 of part 3 of the booklet, he has crossed the limits of dishonesty,
untrustworthiness and lying. Undoubtedly Allaah's curse is surely assured for the liars and
the transgressors. To distort someone's writings completely against his aim and opinion and
then accuse him of doing wrong things is abuse and unlawfulness. Regarding this on the next
pages you will find the verdict of the Mufti of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi Mufti
Muhammad Shafee Saahib. Those who call themselves the rightly guided scholars, these Deobandi scholars, thieves of religion should remember these verses of the Holy Qur'aan:

Walaa Tahsabannal Laaha Ghaafilan Ammaa Ya'maluz Zaalimoon.


(Chapter 14, verse 42)

Wasa ya'lamul Lazeena Zalamoo Aiyya Munqalabiny-Yan qaliboon


(Chapter 26, verse 227)

Translation of the verses:


(And never consider Allaah unaware of the deeds of the unjust.)
(And now the unjust will soon know as to which side they shall return.)
Dear readers, almost 15 years ago, the monthly Al Meezaan of Mumbai published
Imaam Ahmad Razaa Number. In its preface the publishers wrote a paragraph headlined as
"A Pile of Accusations." In order to fulfil his evil aim the author of the booklet "Johannesburg to
Bareilly" quoted a few sentences from this paragraph and then invited people to see what the
views of those who consider Imaam Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi as their Imaam were.(*)
This servant of Ahle Sunnat will first quote the whole paragraph of the preface of the
Imaam Ahmad Razaa Number from the magazine, Al Meezaan and will then present the
sentences from the paragraph which is quoted by the author of the booklet "Johannesburg to
Bareilly," so the readers would know the truth and also be aware of the wickedness of these
Wahaabi Deobandi Tableeghi religious thieves. Surely those whose foundation is on lies and
dishonesty will guide others to a path which leads straight to the hell (Siraat e Mustaqeem Ilal
Jaheem). May Allaah protect us from their wickedness.

_______________________
(*)This servant of Ahle Sunnat would like to inform his readers that if my intention was not Al
hubbu Lil laah Wal Bughzu lil laah i.e. To love for the sake of Allaah and to hate only for the sake
of Allaah, I would have, like the author of this booklet, "Johannesburg to Bareilly," quoted many excerpts from the writings of the senior scholars of Deoband such that it would have become difficult for
the Deobandis to hide their faces. But dishonesty, transgression, lies and speaking nonsense only suits
these Deobandis. Being grateful to Allaah, my concern is to only prove the true as the truth and lies as
fabrication. It is my distinction and privilege to speak the truth and to be straight forward. Al hamdu lil
Laah (Thanks to Allaah for this blessing).

Piles of Accusations
"The state of our lack of interest is that to write a book on him [Alaa Hazrat, Imaam
Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him)] is one thing, uptil now many books written by
him have not even been adorned with the jewels of publication. Where else on the other side,
the personality of Imaam Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) has been persistently
distorted by speeches and writings. To acknowledge his valuable service is one thing; there are
piles of accusation on him. This series did not start a few years ago but has continued since last
half a century. Not unconsciously but in an organized manner, not only in Indo-Pak but in all
the countries of Asia and Europe. The obvious result that came out of this is that a solemn man
of today is scared to turn towards him. It is generally famous about Imaam Ahmad Razaa (Allaah
have mercy on him) that he was a Mukaffirul Muslimeen (a person who declares Muslims as infidels)
and in Bareilly he had set up a machine for making infidels. In all the research institutions
present in Asia today, to do work on him is one thing; even his name will not be found.(*)
Research and history writing has been sacrificed in the furnace of prejudice and narrowmindedness. This insensitivity of opposing Imaam Ahmad Razaa (Allaah have mercy on him) has
poured water on all his achievements. Imaam Ahmad Razaa (Allaah have mercy on him) is like that
diamond which is trying to enlighten the whole world with his most spectacular rays but efforts
have been made to hide him behind veils of misunderstandings and accusations.
This is such a great tragedy of time that the full light of antiquity and portrayal is sacrificed on one party and even the superficial reference of the other party is not allowed. I wish our
writers and intellectuals had made choices with heartiness and nobility of character and had
analyzed the standpoint of Imaam Ahmad Razaa (Allaah have mercy on him). In addition they should
have looked into the real reasons of opposition made by the seniors of Deoband then much bitterness would have not existed today. It is essential to correctly understand the meaning of the
differences and to explain them to others so that the new generation present could come near
Imaam Ahmad Razaa (Allaah have mercy on him) without hesitation."

After reading the real statement of Al-Meezaan , now see the treachery of the author
of Johannesburg to Bareilly. He writes:

_______________________
(*)It

is stated for the knowledge of the readers that now in 1989 AD, the situation is different. By
the grace of Allaah, now Asia and Europe are benefitting from the profound knowledges of Hazrat Imaam
Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him).

36

Title: A General View concerning Molvi Ahmed Raza Khan from a follower of
the Barelvis
A considerate person of today hesitates to leap in this direction. It is
generally known concerning Imaam Ahmed Raza that he was a Mukaffirul Muslimeen
(One who decrees Muslims as Kaafirs). He had set up a Machine-Gun of Kufr in
Bareli. As many Institutions on science existing today in Asia, let alone research
done on the biography of Imaam Ahmed Raza Khan, his name is not even to be
found. (Ref. Maahnaamah Al-Meezaan Bombay Ahmed Raza No. P.29)
View the state of one more example of deceitful and lies on page 42, part 3, of
Johannesburg to Bareilly. The author of Johannesburg to Bareilly writes,
One of the Barelvi Molvi Mazharullah Dehlawi's son; Professor Mas'ood Ahmed
Saheb also correctly states that:
For a long time I had the impression as if Moulana Ahmed Raza Khan was the
leader of the ignorant. (Ref. Faazile Barelvi aur Tarke Mawaalaat P.5 Markazi Majlis
Raza)
Dear readers, Hazrat Professor Muhammad Masood Ahmad Saahib is called Maahir-eRizviyyaat (Specialist of Alaa Hazrats work (Allaah have mercy on him)). For many years he has been
producing praiseworthy and research writings on the memorial of Alaa Hazrat Faazil-e-Barelvi
(Allaah have mercy on him). He is a very proficient, accomplished and modern scholar, researcher and
writer as well as the son of one of the most accomplished scholars and intellectuals of the
subcontinent, Hazrat Muftee-e-Azam Maulana Muhammad Mazhar-ul Laah, the Shaahi Imaam
(Leader) and Khateeb (Orator) of Jaame Masjid Fatehpuri (Dehli). He is considered an influential
and authentic personality in literary and analyst circles. In 1971, the Markazi Majlis-e-Razaa,
Lahore published his compilation with the name of Faazil-e-Barelvi Aur Tark-e-Mawaalaat. At
the end of this book, the praising views of the learned and well informed people and also the
view of opponent Professor Masood Ahmad Saahib were printed. View a complete paragraph
presented on page 5 of this book with the title of Preview so the readers may evaluate the lies
and fraud of the ill-mannered writer of Johannesburg to Bareilly:
The Professor Saahib writes, Faazil-e-Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) was a renowned
scholar of his time but even today he has not been introduced properly in literary circles. The
educated people of the modern age are to a great extent almost ignorant about him. Therefore,
in a gathering where this writer (Professor Masood Ahmad) was also present, an influential
person said, Most of the followers of Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan are illiterate. So, he is the
leader of the illiterate. Innaa lil Laahi Wa Innaa Ilaiehi Rajioon. It is needed to write a true,

37

correct, authentic and verified biography supported by evidence on the modern biographic rules
of research and to present his literary accomplishments more and more for public viewing.
Dear reader, you have seen the real statement on page 5 of the book written by Professor
Saahib, Faazil-e-Barelvi Aur Tark-e-Mawaalaat, to clearly explain the literary knowledge and
status of Alaa Hazrat Faazil-e-Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him). Also before this you have seen the
fabricated and fake statement of the unfaithful writer of Johannesburg to Bareilly. Meaning,
the writer of Johannesburg to Bareilly has himself written and published the words which are
not even mentioned in the above books. Is this the name given to Haqq Goee Aur Tableegh-e-Deen
meaning To speak the truth and preach the religion by the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis?

From this, the readers can figure out the reality and truth of the authors of the booklets,
Johannesburg to Bareilly. I wish these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis would remove the glued
dust of grudges, prejudice, malice and stubbornness from their hearts and minds. Nonetheless
this continues as their daily practice and instead of removing this darkness, they are involved in
an awful struggle of discarding the light of truth. Furthermore they are involved in increasing
the darkness of their own register of deeds (Naamah-e-Aamaal). However the world has seen
that triumph, success, respect and elevation is only the share of the Ahl-e Haqq (the people of the
Truth). Thanks to Allaah, now in every direction Alaa Hazrat Faazil-e-Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on
him) is the title and acknowledgement of truth and honesty. The opponents of Alaa Hazrat (Allaah
have mercy on him) are collecting with their own pens and tongues, shame for themselves.
Respected readers, have you seen what the real face of these dishonest and deceiving
Deobandi Wahaabi religious thieves who call themselves the Scholars of Truth is? After knowing
their real face, you will also say that these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis are definitely making
mockery of the religion and they do not fear Allaah at all.
The purpose of writing this book (White and Black) will be clear to you after reading this
book. In the book, "Deoband to Bareilly: The Truth," you have seen forty statements of the senior
scholars of Deoband, which are the basis of differences between us. In this book, you can see the
religious verdicts of the scholars of Deoband about these statements and examine yourself,
rather call it a miracle of the Divine that in such a manner the Divine powers have imposed, with
the tongue and pen of the scholars of Deoband, their own fatway (verdicts) (on their own wrong
and polytheist statements).
The state of the Rafaazis (Shi'ites) is that they beat their chests (maatam) hence punish
themselves all the time for the grudge they have against the Sahaabah (Companions of the Holy
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)). Similarly, for the reason of insulting and finding faults in
the Prophethood, the scholars of Deoband have become a victim of abuse and dishonor with
their own verdicts and by publicizing their own verdicts, they are also making arrangements for
their own mockery and ridicule throughout the world.

38

To see these two colors of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars will not be free from
curiosity for the readers. Furthermore the reader will also recognize that all the big and small
scholars of Deoband are absolutely incorrect. If for instance, they consider all the writings of
their scholars as reliable and final then what is their inhibition in accepting the judgement of
the rightly guided Sunnee scholars against the Deobandi Wahaabi scholars which is definitely
not wrong? On this topic also see that whenever blasphemous and wrong statements written
by the scholars of Deoband were given to the Muftis (jurists) of Deoband to pass a verdict on
them without disclosing that who have written them, a verdict of infidelity was immediately
given on these statements. But when they were told these statements are of their own senior
Deobandi scholars then with shame they started wringing their hands on the verdicts they
passed.(*)
It can be proven from this action of these Mullaa-worshippers Deobandis that in front of
the scholars of Deoband, there is no value of truth and facts rather the value of their own few
scholars is more important.
Therefore see this, in front of Gangohi Saahib, anyone calling a Sahaabi (Companion)
amongst the Companions of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) an infidel will not be
cast out of the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaaat. He writes:
Any person who calls any of the respected Sahaabah an infidel, he is accursed. It is
forbidden to make such a person the Imaam of Masjid and because of this major sin he will not
be excluded from Sunnat Jamaaat."
(Fataawaa-e-Rasheediyah, pp. 141-2, printed by Kutub Khaanah Raheemiyah, Sunehri Masjid Dehli, 1352 AH)(**)

Pay attention that amongst the respected Sahaabah (Companions) from Hazrat Abu Bakr
Siddeeq (Allaah be pleased with him) to the last Sahaabi, all are included. The learned scholars and jurists of Ahle Sunnat have made it clear that anyone calling a Sahaabi an infidel is cast out of the
Ahle Sunnat. Rather, that person who uses abusive language for Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq and
Hazrat Umar Faarooq (Allaah be pleased with them) is without any doubt an infidel. Nevertheless, in
front of Gangohi Saahib, to consider those who call any Companion (Sahaabi) an infidel as an
infidel themselves is one thing; that person is not even discarded from Sunnat Jamaaat. How
amazing.!
_______________________
(*)See some examples of such verdict written by the scholars of Deoband in "Taaaruf Ulamaa-eDeoband" by Khateeb-e-A'zam Pakistan, Maulana Muhammed Shafee Okarvi, (Allaah have mercy on him).
(**)In 1987 AD the complete version of Fataawaa-e-Rasheediyah was published by Idaarah-eIslaamiyaat, Lahore with the title of Taaleefaat-e-Rasheediyah. In it this verdict of Gangohi Saahib
was not printed. Why they did like this? Obviously serious allegation would have been imposed on
Gangohi Saahib by this verdict and the Scholars of Deoband do not have answers to it. Nevertheless
the scholars of Deoband should remember by removing the verdicts from new publications the allegations on Gangohi cannot be ended.
39

It is proven that in front of these worshippers of Mullaas, the respect that these Deobandi
Wahaabis have for their own scholars; they do not have the same respect for the Respected
Companions (Allaah have mercy on them). Yet, even then they want to call themselves as Sipaah-eSahaabah (the Guards of the Companions).
Readers might want to know why this subject is so important to me. A brief answer
to this is that my aim is Dawat-e-Haqq (Invitation of the Truth) and every Muslim should
have the ambition to acquire the truth (Talab e Haqq) so that they can keep their beliefs and
deeds correct.
Dear readers, allow me to go into a little bit of detail. The obligation of propagating the
religion and beliefs is a responsibility of every Muslim but only after acquiring the full
knowledge of the religion. Not as such that a person starts considering himself a religious
scholar from reading the translations of the Holy Qur'aan or merely a few books by themselves.
According to the reasoning of the hadees of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam),
If a person goes out for preaching and serving religion with honesty and sincerity only for
seeking the happiness Allaah, he will receive four hundred and ninety million times greater
rewards for each of his prayers (salaat) as described. Preaching religion is definitely a great
auspiciousness but it is also a very delicate matter. During the caliphate of Ameer-ul Mumineen
(the Caliph of the Muslims) Hazrat Saiyyidina Umar Faarooq-e-Azam (Allaah be pleased with him),
apart from some senior respected companions only, no one else was allowed to give any
verdicts.
Translating the saying (hadees) of the Holy Prophet (Alaiehis Salaatu Was Salaam), This is an
order that if anyone amongst you sees anything happening against the Shareeat and Sunnah in
front of their eyes then the person seeing this should try to stop it within his powers, with the
power of his hands; if he is unable to do so then he should loudly speak the truth with his voice
against it and if even this is not possible for the viewer then at least he should consider it wrong
in his heart but to only consider it wrong in one's heart is the lowest degree of Ieemaan (faith)."
(Muslim #78-49, Abu Daawood #1140, Nasaaee #5008, Ibn-e-Maajah #1275, Musnad-e-Ahmad #11073)

According to this statement of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), it is
mandatory on every Muslim to, within the best of his capacity, try to fight firmly against the
opponents of religion. A detailed writing is required on this subject but the summary is that in
order to fulfill this duty every Muslim should first acquire true and full knowledge of his beliefs
and Ieemaan and be firm and steadfast on them. He should also pay special attention to
correcting his beliefs and actions.

40

If the preacher is not on the right path then his preaching will not be beneficial. This is a
common fact that in the present environment those people who call themselves preachers and
scholars, (Illaa Ma Shaa Allaah), not all, but most of them are unaware of their own conditions. It
is the Divine command to adopt decent ways with wisdom for advising others to do well and to
abstain from evils. But what is happening is that verdicts are only being given by such so-called
scholars who are themselves in the forefront of prevailing evils in society. In the name of
propagating religion, selling religion and every other immorality is taking place. Verdicts are
only for others while those who call themselves scholars have made every forbidden deed
lawful for themselves. The scholars have great contribution in the virtues and vices of the
Muslim society. This is the group (tabqah) near whom Muslims gather five times a day. These
people have a share in nearly every affair, from the birth of a child to the wedding, divorce and
death; almost in every matter the Ulamaa are involved. The people consider their actions and
sayings certified and worthy of following themselves.
If the Scholars of the religion stay truthful and perform the duties of religion honestly
and truthfully then certainly they will be a great example and role models for the rest of the
society and if they go astray then the punishment will also be on them for the crookedness of
the people affected by them. Maybe most of the so-called scholars only recite the verses of the
Holy Qur'aan, sayings of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), arguments and evidences
only to impress their audiences. Their own hearts and mind are not affected by it; this is the
reason that the deterioration of the society continues to linger on. In preaching religion, apart
from the articles of faith and ideologies, worshipping, concerning affairs, morals and character
are all included. And every true preacher preaches of all this in his writing and speeches and
makes himself an excellent example of it. But whatever the Tableeghi Jamaaat of Deobandi
Wahaabis is doing today, it is not hidden from anyone. These exhibitors who present Kalimah
and Salaat (Namaaz) as their aim, in the name of preaching the religion and due to animosity
and unnecessary stubbornness, are not tired of calling every true Muslim an infidel and
innovator.
These people of Tableeghi Jamaaat do not show the correct path to the misled and
deviators at the gates of cinema houses, on the shores of beaches, at the doors of casinos (places
of gambling), at the shops of alcohol and in the path of evil neither do they become a wall
against the drug dealers. Look for them, they will be seen in the Sunnee Masaajid stopping
people from reciting Salaat-o-Salaam on the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) (salutation
and peace). They will be seen fighting strongly against Faatihah (gathering for forwarding rewards) and meelaad (celebrating the holy birth of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
In Madinah Munawwarah they will seen persuading the Muslims to go from Masjid-e-Nabvi to
Masjid-e-Diraar (which they have named Masjid-e-Noor)
The accursed Satan (Shaietaan) had said to Almighty Allaah, "I will definitely sit on Your
straight path to look out (aim) for them (the true Muslims). Meaning Satan will mislead those
41

who are on the Siraat e Mustaqeem (the straight path) because those who are victims of
waywardness are already strayed and are on the manner and the path of Satan. Satan does not
have to work very hard on them. Satan will mislead those who are on the straight path.
Respected reader you should decide for yourself: these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi people will be seen persecuting those who are coming to the Masaajid and going to the abodes of the
Friends of Allaah. They are seen preventing only those on the right path from good deeds.
Those deeds which are a cause of the mercy, goodness and approval of Allaah and the Holy
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Ask yourselves; are these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis not
following the footsteps of Satan?

This servant of the Ahle Sunnat, dust from beneath the feet of the progeny of the Prophet,
humbly says to guard yourself against these shrewd Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis who are
misleading people under the guise of preaching religion. The service to inform the true believer
about the cunning moves of these shrewd Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis and to educate them to
stay on the straight path has an exceptional importance. In addition guidance and laws are
available about this. It is a sacred saying of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) You
should save yourself from these (irreligious people) and stay away from them (so that) neither
would they involve you in mischief nor would they astray you Because meeting, loving and
mixing with them will have bad effects. (Mishkaat: 154) It is stated in another narration, Talk
about these faasiq (disobedient) and faajir (sinful people). Meaning that people should be told
about this irreligiousness so that people can guard themselves against their malice and
conspiracies. (Kanzul Ummaal: 8980) The holy Quraan tells us that even pure gold worth the entire
world cannot be the replacement of faith. How much arrangement is made by a person who
possesses even a small amount of gold to protect it! Then how much should we guard this
invaluable Faith! Because faith is the only means of our salvation and the basis of our success.
Therefore nothing else could be more important than steadfastness on correct beliefs. So
undoubtedly, preaching correct beliefs in accordance to the Qur'aan and Sunnah bears extra
ordinary importance. Maybe to convert non-Muslim to Islaam is not such a difficult task than to
flourish a so-called Muslim (those who think they are correct) with the unlimited wealth of
perfect religion and the love of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
In this materialistic age, the Islaamic world is a victim of deterioration because the
Muslims have not maintained the excellence in connection with the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) which the earlier Muslims had possessed. The way these Deobandi Wahaabi

Tableeghis and other irreligious groups have made Muslims a victim of persecution, its result is
in front of us in the form of the isolation of people from religion as well as sectarianism and
extremism. Even today only those people have a heartiest satisfaction whose association with
the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is strong

42

These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, who consider the knowledge of Satan greater than
the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), these people who have this belief that even
Almighty Allaah does not know about things in advance; when a person does something then
Allaah finds out about it. These people whose belief is Allaah can speak lies and whose belief is
that the Prophet is an ordinary person like us. These people who believe that the amount and
kind of knowledge of the Unseen that the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has is the
similar knowledge also possessed by madmen, animals and children and that it is possible for a
prophet to be born after the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)( Maaazal Laah, Allaah
forbid). These people do not have any close attachment and true love for the Bargah-e-Mustafaa
(Court of Mustafaa); what blessings and bounties will they resource to others? And the belief of
these people is that in every way only and only Almighty Allaah is the Granter of benefit and
loss to anyone and any other creation cannot give any benefit or loss to anyone else. If anyone
keeps any hope for profit from any creation, even if he were to consider him profitable with the
Order of Allaah, he is also an infidel. They should be asked, When you have this belief then
why do you preach? Why do you build teaching institutes? Why do you print books? Why do
you give lectures? Why do you hold gatherings? If your aim is to bestow profit to others then
this is the work of Allaah and according to your own belief no creation can give benefit to
another. You do things against your beliefs and hence establish yourself as an infidel according
to your verdict or otherwise you make yourself the God.
This servant of the Ahle-Sunnat has written a great deal on this topic in the book
"Deoband to Bareilly, The Truth." With the contents of this book (White and Black) present in
front of your eyes, those forty statements written in my previous book of these Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghis will not only be confirmed but the real faces of these Deobandi Wahaabis
will be more exposed. Therefore, more people will definitely be able to save themselves from
their wickedness. All over the world the scholars of Ahle Sunnat and the respected Friends of
Allaah have converted people to Islaam and whatever number of Friends of Allaah have been
around the world, they belong to the true believers Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat. There has never
been any Ghaus (Redresser), Qutub (Pivot) or Abdaal (a saint of higher status) in any other creed
which is a clear evidence that only Ahle Sunnat are the people of Truth, otherwise they would
have not been given the gift of Sainthood. And Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat is that rewarded
group in whose path we supplicate to follow in every rakat of salaat (prayer). Only these true
people have fulfilled the correct obligation of preaching religion in all four directions.
Otherwise these Tableeghi Wahaabi Deobandi people are making true Muslims into polytheists
and innovators. And along with letting themselves go astray, they also lead others astray.
Dear readers, after this brief detail you will say this yourself: is this an ordinary task to
protect the faith of the true Muslims? Is it an ordinary matter to inform the true believers about
the conspiracies of the enemies of Islaam? Is it not important to prove the true as truth and lies

43

as false? I would honestly say that these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis also know very well that
their elderly scholars have written blasphemous writings and the infidelity of these writings is
also confirmed in their eyes.(*) But just for the sake of their false ego and to please their nonMuslim masters they are not willing to accept the truth. It is a great amazement and pity they do
not care at all about pleasing Almighty Allaah and his beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam)

Thousands of pities on such thought that these people have no regrets for insulting and
accusing the Prophethood. They do not care about losing their faith. The only sorrow and regret
they have on this is that why have their four or five scholars been declared infidels on account of
writing blasmphemic text? Why do these people not realize that even if a religious scholar does
not issue a religious verdict on anyones saying or writings of infidelity (by none of religious
scholars issuing Sharee verdict) then will their infidelity still become the real Islaam? Infidelity
in any form is infidelity and to be greater than Almighty Allaah is one thing, no one can be
equally knowledgeable or have knowledge like Him. It is shame that through the efforts of
explaining texts of infidelity of their scholars and in proving infidelity to be the real Islaam, these
people destroy their own Faith. And they are not tired of calling the few scholars who are the
writers of this text of infidelity as Hakeem-ul-Ummat (Wiseman of the Nation), Qutb-e-Haqq (Pivot
of Truth), Mutaa-ul-Aalam (Ruler of the world) and Mujaddid-e-Millat (Reviver of the Nation) etc.
Although they are even aware of this principle that to support infidels is also infidelity and that
the meaning of praising an infidel is inviting the wrath of Almighty Allaah. Maulana Roomi
says,

Me Balarzad 'Arsh Az Madhe Shaqee


(The Arsh (Divine Throne) trembles when a transgressor is praised)

This is also a miracle of the Divine that the beliefs and actions of us Ahle Sunnat Wa
Jamaaat are proven to be truthful and lawful by the books of these Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis. They also do the same things for which they call us polytheists and innovators but
they have reserved the verdict of polytheism and innovation only for us. Even though by this
they become guilty twice; firstly they become an offender of calling a lawful deed as infidelity
and secondly they become an offender for doing the same action after calling it unlawful. If this

it is clear from their action that in front of the present scholars of Deoband, text of infidelity is surely infidelity, otherwise why would it be considered necessary to change these writings?

is not their ill-fatedness then what is it?


May Almighty Allaah, for the sake of His beloved (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), protect us
from such evils and their evilness. Aameen
This servant of Ahle Sunnat requests to all Sunnees that be aware of all these thieves of
faith and acquire the full awareness of the realities for the protection of your faith. Stay straight
and steadfast on the Maslak-e-Haqq (The Correct Path) of the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat. May
Almighty Allaah, for the sake of the blessed sandal of His beloved Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam), protect our faith and end our lives on prosperity. Aameen
In the next few pages the real text from the quotes of the insulting and other writings
of infidelity from these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars are being written in one column.
With every statement, the name of the book, the name of the writer and the page number is also
given and in the other column, the verdict of these scholars of Deoband Wahaabi Tableeghis has

full of infidelity in front of the scholars of Deoband, As if, to hit their heads with their own
shoes and to hit their faces with their own hands.

Gentlemen, Muhammad Ibne Abdul


Wahaab Najdi appeared in the early 13th
Century AH, from Najd in Arabia. Since he
held wrong thoughts and evil beliefs, he
therefore waged a war against Ahle Sunnat
Wa Jamaaat and he considered killing and
fighting them to be a cause of blessings
and mercy He used the utmost disrespectful and offensive words in the grandeur of the legendary pious people and
their followers It was Muhammad Ibne
Abdul Wahaab's belief that the whole
world and Muslims all over the world are
polytheists and infidels. To wage a war
against them and to kill them and to deprive them of their worldly goods is not
only lawful and permitted but it is also obligatory [Ibne Abdul Wahaab Najdi and
his group writes that] having a vision of
the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam], appearing in the blessed presence of the
Prophet, visiting or viewing the Prophet's
grave, are all innovations and unlawful
Some of them even say that traveling in
order to visit the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam] reaches the status of committing
adultery.

"Uttering words which may reflect to


demean the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam] even though the intention of the
person may not be to disgrace, however,
by only saying such words a person
becomes an infidel.

The Wahaabis use the most


disrespectful language in the grandeur of
Prophethood and the elevated personality

The words in which there is the


doubt of insult or disrespect, those words
are also stated by him [Janaab Gangohi]

and they consider themselves to be similar
to thepersonality of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) They think that Now
the Prophet (Alaiehis-Salaam) has no right on
us, neither can we get any benefit or favor
from his blessed personality after his
death. Hence for this reason they consider recommendations in supplication from
his blessed personality after death prohibited. Their elders say [To copy someones
words of Kufr is not Kufr, Maaazal Laah,
Summa Maaazal Laah (May Allaah forbid, and Allaah may again forbid us)],
The staff in our hands is more beneficial
to us than the personality of the Prophet
(Alaiehis Salaatu Was Salaam). We can also ward
away a dog from it but we cannot even do
this much from the personality of the
Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] On
the slightest alleged reasons, the Wahaabis
declare all [Muslims] to be polytheists and
infidels and consider their blood and their
properties Halaal [allowed] for them The
filthy Wahaabis [Maaazal Laah Allaah
forbid] consider the statements and
speeches filled with verses of love and respect etc. for the sacred court of the Holy
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) as polytheism and infidelity. [Maaazal Laah,

as to be as a cause of hurt to the Prophet


(Alaiehim-us-Salaam), He declared, A
person uttering these words of infidelity
should be strictly stopped from doing so
by all possible means and if [such a
person] does not refrain from doing so,
[then he] should be killed because [he] is
an insolent and oppressor of Almighty
Allaah and His trustworthy Prophet [Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam].

Gangohi, printed by Idaarah-e-Islaamiyaat 1987 AD)

In front of the Wahaabis the respect and


honor of the sacred relics is infidelity, polytheism and prohibited It is the habit of
Wahaabis to use disrespectful words in the

Wahaabis consider the Muslims as infidels


and polytheists. They had considered it
then and also now their wealth and blood

improper language for the court of the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) In
Wahaabi belief and action, it is not permitted to travel in order to pay a visit to the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Therefore all of this is present in their books and
writings.

apostate and an infidel in front of all
Muslims.

If Prophets are distinguished from


their followers then this distinction is
confined only in regard to knowledge. But
as far as deeds are concerned, actually,
most often their followers are equal to
them and sometimes even excel them.
(Tahzeerun-Naas, p. 5 by Janaab Muhammad Qaasim
Naanotvi, Kutub Khaanah Matba-e-Qaasimee, Deoband)

Every Prophet is only the chief of his


followers like the head of every community and the landlord of a village.

"All scholars unanimously agrees on


this that anyone who is disrespectful,
insulting, insolent and a cause of distress
to the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] is
an infidel and anyone person who has
doubt in his infidelity and the wrath

infidelity is based on what is evident; it is
not on supposition, intention or the present
circumstances The scholars have said

not intended.

one, for this, our belief is that he is out of
the circle of Ieemaan [Faith].

Janaab Ashraf Ali Thanvi, printed by Ashraf-ul-

(Taqweeyat-ul-Ieemaan, p. 14)

Meaning, all humans are brothers


amongst each other. He who is older in
age is an elder brother and should be given
the respect due for an elder brother. But
Allaah is the Owner of all. Worshipping
should only be for Him.

Certain harsh words which have


occurred in Taqweeyat-ul-Ieemaan [written
by Ismaaeel Dehlvi Phulti Baalakoti] were
a cure for the ignorance in those days
Undoubtedly these [words used by
Ismaaeel Dehlvi] are disrespectful and
insolent. These words of Taqweeyat-ulIeemaan(*) will also not be used.

(*)It is most important to notify to my readers Taqweeyat-ul-Ieemaan" is still being regularly
published and distributed freely on behalf of the scholars of Deoband. It clearly shows by the publication and distribution of this book that in spite of accepting disrespectfulness (continued on next page)

"The Friends of Allaah, Prophets, Imaams


and the Progeny of Imaam, Spiritual
guides and the Martyrs, meaning all the

"In His kingdom, the position of the


best of creations, Muhammad the Prophet

(continued from page 49) and insolence the present days Wahaabi Tableeghis are included in this
disrespect and insolence. Therefore, in the next pages you can read the fatwaa (verdict) of the Imaam
of Deobandis, Gangohi Saahib, in regard to repeating the infidelic and blasmphemic text and about
the publication of such text etc. According to which the reliance on it is proven by all the Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghis and all the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis according to the verdict of their own
Gangohi are proven guilty of being disrespectful, insolent and non believers. Besides this the statements and actions against Taqweeyat-ul-Ieemaan is common amongst the Deobandi Wahaabi and
due to this they are declared infidels, non-believers and innovators according to the verdict of their
own Imaam Ismaaeel Dehlvi.)
The Imaam and the Leader of Deobandis Wahaabis, Janaab Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti the
author himself of the book Taqweeyat-ul-Ieemaan has accepted, concerning this book, that he has
shown aggravation in his book, has used inappropriate language and has written hidden infidelity as
clear infidelity. (Arwaah-e-Salaasah, p. 73) And Mawaa-e-Jahaan [shelter of the world], Dostgeer
Darmaanadgaan [real helper of the afflicted], Mutaa-ul-Kul [one who is obeyed by all] Ghaus-eAzam [absolute redresser] of the Deobandi Wahaabi Janaab Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi [May that will
happen for him which is for him] says,
Taqweeyat-ul-Ieemaan is a very good book and is very effective in opposing polytheism and
innovation. Its reasonings are absolutely according to the Book of Allaah [Quraan] and Ahaadees.
Reading and keeping this book [Taqweeyat-ul-Ieemaan] is the real Islaam. (Fataawaa-e-Rasheediyah,
p. 1)
Gangohi Saahib further says, He [Ismaaeel Dehlvi] definitely belongs to paradise and is a sincere
saint and to call someone like him expelled is like being expelled ourselves and to call someone famous like him an infidel is like being an infidel ourselves. To call a person who does tawaaf [goes
around the grave] an infidel and to discard him from the circle of Islaam, is a very bad and a disliked
action. And to declare someone an infidel like this is also a very bad. (pg 85, 88 Taaleefaat-eRasheediyah) And Thanvi Saahib says, In the words of the book Taqweeyat-ul-Ieemaan [written by
Ismaaeel Dehlvi] there is insolence and disrespect of the Prophets and the Friends of Allaah.
According to the leader of the Deobandis (Gangohi) it is known that the disrespectful and insolent people are renowned, loyal saints and certainly dwellers of the paradise. Ismaaeel Dehlvi
writes, The Prophet does not even know about his own end. And Gangohi Saahib says, Ismaaeel
Dehlvi, who declares that the Prophet is not aware of his own end, he surely belongs to the paradise.
Now all the Deobandi Wahaabis should decide who is correct amongst all three of them? Or accept
this: all three of them are wrong. (Ismaaeel Dehlvi, Gangohi and Thanvi)

"If someone calls the Prophet [Sallal


Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] a brother for the
reason of being the progeny of Aadam
then what did he say against the real text
[of the Qur'aan and Ahaadees]? He only
says so according to the text To abuse
him is like abusing the Quraan and the
Sunnat and to say anything against him is
like saying against the real text.
(Baraaheen-i-Qaati'ah, p. 3, by Janaab Khaleel Ahmad
Ambethvi, certified by Janaab Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi,
printed by Kutub Khaanah Raheemiyah, Deoband)

(In comparison to this, if the scholars of


Deoband are called brothers of Namrood,
Fir'aun, Haamaan, Krishan, Raam
Chandra, Gandhi, Mirza Qaadiyani for
being the Bani Aadam (the Progeny of
Aadam) then it will definitely not be
against the real text (of the holy Qur'aan
and Ahaadees). According to their own
fatwaa (verdict), it would be wrong to
abuse a person who says this, as saying so
would be perfectly justified).

Janaab Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah


Muhaajir Makki is considered a prominent
spiritual guide and teacher by the legendary
scholars of Deoband.(*) The senior scholars
of Deoband have highly exaggerated in
describing the excellences of their spiritual
guide. They have called him, Ameer-ulMu'mineen (Chief of the Muslims), Ghaus-ulKaamileen (Perfect Recessor), Mamba'eBarakaat-e-Qudsiyah (Fountainhead of the
Divine Blessing), Ma'dan-e-Ma'aarif-ellaahiyah (Mine of Allaahs Knowledge),
Mazhar-e-Fuyoozaat-e-Marziyyah (Evidence of
the Desired Virtues), Duniyaa aur Aakhirat
may Waseelah (Mediator in this world and
hereafter), Aliyy-e-Waqt (Ali of the Era), etc
and yet have also expressed their inability to
praise Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah as he should
have been. The same Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah
Saahib calls for help from his spiritual guide
and teacher Maulana Noor Muhammad
Saahib after his death like this:

"Most people call out for the Prophets, the


spiritual Guides, the Imaams, the Martyrs,
the Angels, the fairies in times of distress
and ask them to fulfill their desires. They
also give them offerings [mannat] for this
purpose. For fulfilling their desires, they
also do Nazr [giving alms] and Niyaaz [to
offer Gifts] Therefore they are involved
in polytheism There is no such
intercessor or anyone in the whole skies
and earth who would give any benefit or
harm to anyone who believes in him and
ask for his help Allaah Saahib has not
given spiritual powers to anyone [tasarruf]
and no one can mediate for anyone. Also
no one can give profit to anybody in the
world nor can anyone be of any help to anyone else But this calling, asking vows,
doing Nazr [giving alms] and Niyaaz [to
offer Gifts] and to accept these [creations]
as our advocate and intercessor were the
infidelity and polytheism of those

(*)After knowing about the statements of infidelity and insolence of the scholars of the
Deobandis, the spiritual leader of the Deobandi Wahaabis, Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah Saahib Mahaajir
Makki has declared these followers as vicious and has openly described his own correct beliefs
according to Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat. Therefore, it can be said, The scholars of the Deoband are
not the followers of Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah and nor are the followers of Shaah Waliyyul Laah
Muhadith Delhvi because the writings of the scholars of Deoband are also not according to the
writings of Hazrat Shaah Waliyyul Laah which are published by the Deobandis. Therefore their claim
is also incorrect that the scholars of the Deoband are actually the followers of Hazrat Shaah Waliyyul
Laah. (Kaukab, Ghufira Lahu)

Ismaaeel Dehlvi Phulti Baalakoti)

When you are the savior, help, then why should


Imdaad have any fear?
But my hands and feet tremble when I listen to
the talks of love.

O king Noor Muhammad the time is for


helping
As in this world you are my only source of
help

See the plea of the person who calls


himself the founder of Madrasah-eDeoband Janaab Muhammad Qaasim
Naanotvi. He says:


Help me O grace of Ahmad as except you
There is no helper of this helpless Qaasim
If the Spirit of Allaah would help me
Then I would also present verses in His praise
54

If Jibra'eel would help me in my thoughts


Then I would step forward and say master of
the universe
Except of being the god, no other quality is
missing in you

Besides being a worshiper what is there which


would be shameful to you?
There is the veil of humanity on your beauty
No one could know who was he except the

court

(Taqweeyatul-Ieemaan, pp. 58,161 by Ismaaeel Dehlvi)

The same Naanotvi of Deobandi


Wahaabis, who is also called QaasimulUloom-e-Wal Khaieraat (The Distributor of
Knowledge and Goodness) and Hujjatul

Earth) further says,

(*)Janaab Ismaaeel Dehlvi says, Praise the Prophet like a man, rather even this [praise]
should be decreased. And Gangohi Saahib says, To write the title Qiblah or Kabah for anyone is not
correct, it is Makroo-e-Tahreemiyah [forbidden]. All the scholars of Deoband have written and used
respectful words and titles for their Mullaas mentioned above without any fear; this clearly proves that
the actions and words of these people is definitely not similar, rather, there is hypocrisy in their
practice and habit.

having such beliefs are firm infidels. A

also infidels like them.

After hearing this you are the intercessor of this

Muhaajir Makki's cry for help. He says:

Aey Rasool-e-Kibriyaa Faryaad Hai

Now see how Ashraf Ali Thanvi,


Mujaddid (the Reviver), Deeni A'qaa
(Religious Lord), Tabeeb-i-Ummat
(Physician of the Nation) and Hakeem-ulUmmat (Wiseman of the Nation) of the
Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis makes his
plea. He says,

He who seeks help from anyone


beside Allaah is in fact, a firm polytheist.
There is no one in this world who is worse
than him, curses be on this person that
there would be a bundle of sticks on his
throat and the curse and damnation of
everyone is on him. He also says, "To ask
for fulfilling the needs from the dead and
making vows [mannat] from them is the
way of the infidels.

(Tazkeer-ul-Akhwaan, pp. 83, 262, by Janaab Ismaaeel

The "Shaiekh-ul-Hind" (master of


India) of Deobandi Wahaabis Janaab who
sought remedies for all needs from the
Imaam of the Deobandi Wahaabi Rasheed
Ahmad Gangohi Saahib, Mahmood-ulHasan says,

To like infidelity, to consider acts of


infidelity as good, to make someone else
do infidelity to demean a Prophet or an
angel, to humiliate them to call
somebody from a distance and think he
will know about it, to consider somebody
an authority on profit or harm, to ask
someone for fulfilling the heart's desires or
asking him for income, children to make
a vow [mannat] in the name of someone
to repeat any saint's name as a daily
practice to think that being connected to
a saint is enough for one's salvation to
praise someone excessively [and] many
other things of these kind are bad

Hawaarij Deen o Dunyaa Kahaan lay


Jaayay hum yaa Rabb
Gayaa wo Qibah-e-Haajaat Roohaani
To whom shall I now turn for the redress
of my needs, my Rabb? The redresser of
all my physical and spiritual needs is now
gone.

59

Ghaus means one who redresses one's


grievances. Therefore Mahmood-ulHasan Saahib addresses Gangohi Saahib
not only as "Ghaus" but as "Ghaus-eA'zam (The Greatest Redresser). Just see,

(infidelity and polytheism)."


(Bahishtee Zewar, pp. 37, 38 by Ashraf Ali Thanvi)

Mas'ood Ansari.
He is the Rasheed-e-Millat-o-Deen [The
Righteousness of the Nation and Religion],
Ghaus-e-A'zam [The Greatest Restorer] and
Qutb-e-Rabbaani [Pivot of God].
Mahmood-ul-Hasan Saahib has not only
called Gangohi Saahib these things but also: "Murabbiy-e-Khalaaiq (Nourisher of the
Creations), Maseehaa-e-Zamaan (Curer of
the Era), Qaseem-i-Faiz-e-Yazdaan (The
Great Distributor of the Bounties of

Noor-e-Mujassam (Physically Full of Light)

him? (*)

When [Janaab Qaasim Naanotvi]


would go to Kalyar Shareef, he would start
walking on his feet from Rurki and he
would be bare foot. And in the night after
entering the shrine [Rozah Shareef] he would
close the doors and he would all night
spend alone at the shrine of Hazrat Saabir
Saahib.

In the compendium of his poetical works,


he says about Gangohi and Naanotvi Saahib:

In the eyes of Deobandis their Bey

the Incomparable), Mustajmius Sifaat
(Full of Qualities), Sar taa Paa Kamaal
(Excellent From Head to Toe), Madaar-eRushd o Hidaayat (The Centre of the Right
Path and Guidance), Gangohi Saahib says:
"To use such words of praise for anybody
as Qiblah-o-Ka'bah [Qiblah and Kabah],
Qiblah-e-Haajaat [The Qiblah of Needs},
Qiblah-e-Deeni-Wa-Dunyaavi [The Qiblah of
the Religion and the World] etc., to connect
such words for someone or to write [all
epithets of veneration] is disapproved and
any saying and writing is Makroo-eTahreemah [absolutely odious]."

The one who guide and the one who distributes

View more of the description of the


special traits" of this Gangohi Saahib:
The inner attainments of Imaam-e-Rabbaani
[Divine Leader] were manifested so
powerfully that it was difficult to
comprehend them. And since this mostly
involves a disciple's own inclination and
affection therefore near and far, present
and absent are all the same in front of his
divine powers in receiving benefit Until the heart was thoroughly purified,
Hazrat would not take the baie at [the oath
of allegiance] of the person and after baieat
what was done by the tasarrufaat [powers
to sway] of Hazrat, it cannot be described
in words In my thinking, the least of the
benefit from which none of his disciples
are deprived of, is the inner
comprehension which follows when one
begins to fear Doomsday Being tied to
his [Gangohis] shadow of kindness
provides the solution to most of the
problems of a person and gives such gain
that even if every hair of ones body and
soul were to express gratitude, it will not
be possible to sufficiently do so Every
servant of the Hazrat Imaam-e-Raabbani
[Divine leader i.e. Gangohi] has certainly
gained some portion of his beneficence
and everybody has undoubtedly been
influenced at sometimes by his
tasarrufaat [powers of sway]. His
[Gangohis] internal and external being
was such a Blessing of Allaah to this
world that everybody benefited from his
blessings to the extent of their capacity
He [Gangohi] has departed from this

"Anyone who tries to prove any creation's tasarruf [a person who is in a position
to change events of the world as he would
like them to be] in the world polytheism
is proven on him even though he may not

62

world but your [Gangohis] powers of


sway are still working throughout the
world Turning Hazrat [Gangohis] attention towards his disciples and asking the
forgiveness of Allaah for them results in
the removal of inner disorders in such a
manner, which is the exclusive domain of
[his] attention and blessing People from
all over the world throng to him. When
[Gangohi] was in this world, the big and
small [high standard and common people]
presented all of their external and internal
needs to him And since deriving of
blessings entirely depends on the strength
of the heart of the Shaiekhs bestowed
blessings and his spiritual powers, and
the tasarrufaat [powers] of some Friends
of Allah have advanced so far in this
regard that it cannot be comprehended by
those who are not at all aware of it. And
this is rather right for someone who has
only five senses and is not aware of this
inner sixth sense. One cannot recognize its
powers and if he hears then why should he
believe in it? Allaah has given the
powers to benefit this blessed group, even
to those people who are not their
disciple The effects of the powers and
tasarrufaat of the Friend of Allaah is also
found in physical life The status of the
powers of the world in this era is not such
that they should be mentioned with feeling
in front of his [Gangohis] inner spiritual
powers and heartily attention From head
to toe, his [Gangohis] gracious filled body
had existence permanently as a guide and
a leader and with his internal spiritual
powers and attention, he would help
servants.

consider his powers to be equal to Allaah's


nor may he try to prove himself to have
powers like Allaah."

Once Hakeem [Ziyaa-ud-Deen


Saahib] saw Muhammad Qaasim Naanotvi
sitting at the shrine of Mukammil Shaah
Saahib. Hakeem Saahib also reached near
the shrine and unknowingly, his feet
touched the holy shrine. Hakeem Saahib
says, I saw that the respected Hazrat
[Naanotvi] caught my feet suddenly with
both his hands and started removing them
from the shrine.
(Sawaanih Qaasimee, p. 30, vol 2)

Polytheism is proven for a person who


may pay exaggerated respect to any
spiritual guide or any Prophet or any
real grave or any tomb or any
house or any relic or symbol; or who
stands with folded hands before any of
these; or travels long distances to visit such
places; or hangs lights, places coverings,
adorns a cover or sheet there; walks
backwards [facing the grave] on ones feet
at the time of leaving; kisses the graves of
them; makes requests with folded
hands, begs in front of them; who even
respects the surrounding forest; and does
things like this.

64

Yes, if a favored person is asked for


obvious assistance, by considering him
only a mediator of the blessings of Allaah
and not the ultimate, then it is allowed.
This assistance is actually only assistance
from Almighty Allaah.
(Footnote of Quraan, p. 2, by Shabbeer Ahmad
Usmaani)

When the winds of blessings and


salvation are blown from Allaah Taaalaa
then the preferred are those pious [people
of Allaah] but they reach near and far to
everyone all around If there was no
benefit in living near [in the neighborhood]
of the noble people then why would
Hazrat Umar-e-Farooq (Allaah be pleased with
him) consider the greatest desire of his life
to be buried near the shrine of the Prophet
[sacred Rozah] The Friends of Allaah are
the people from such a nation that a person
who sits with them he can never be
unsuccessful It is beneficial for the
deceased to be buried near pious people.
(Sawaanih Qaasimee, p. 35, vol 2)

Just like the mediation of the supplication of a person is allowed, similarly, in


supplication the mediation of a person is
also allowed Mediation [with the person] after his death has also been proven
and besides the proof of narration, this is
also proven by intellect Mediation by
one other than the Prophet has been

"So, a person becomes a polytheist if


he chants somebody's name all the time;
and calls him from close by or from far
away; and calls out his name in the
struggle of distresss and calls out his name

about his face or [thinks like so]; or
believes that whatever thoughts or doubts
passes over his heart [that somebody] is
fully aware of it whether such belief is kept
for the Prophets or for saints or for the
spiritual guides and martyrs, Imaams or
the progeny of an Imaam, or for devils and
fairies; or thinks that all of these things that
are happening to him are because of his
own self or are given by [bestowed by]
Allaah, anyhow from all such beliefs,
infidelity is proven.

Along with several other internal


and external excellences of Saiyyid Saahib
[Muhammad Aabid, the real founder of

Hazrat Maulana Gangohi himself


said this to me, When I initially came to

in the abode. Instead I would go outside in
the forest for doing so as that was the place
of the spiritual guide. Moreover I did not

I [Zakariyaa] said, Hazrat I consider


it a cause of honor, pride and necessary for
respect to put the sand from the shoes of
both of you [Husaien Ahmad Madni and
Abdul Qaadir Raipuri] on my head.
(Aap Beiti, p. 389, by Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariyaa)

67

To come to the stairs from my


fathers private room I had to go to [over]
the roof of the private room of Hazrat
[Spiritual Guide]. Instead of doing this, I
used to walk on the ridge of the wall instead of the roof. This was only pretend as
I have still not learned true respect.
(Aap Beetee, p. 93 by Muhammad Zakariyaa Kaanadhalvee)

Once, in our Naanutah [name of a


city], in the winters there would be an epidemic of fever. So, anyone who would

The founder of the Tableeghi Jamaaat,


Muhammad Ilyaas Saahib says, Hazrat

greater in virtue than my voluntary Salaat

Just see the wazeefah (the verses of daily


practice) of the prominent scholars of
Deoband and their followers. They say:

"Khol De Dil May Dar-e-llme Haqeeqat


Mayray Rabb
Haadi-e-A'lam Ali Mushkil Kushaa Kay

Salaasil-e-Taieyyibah, p. 14, by Husaien Ahmad Tandvi
Madni, printed by Idaarah-e-Islaamiyaat, Lahore)

Since Almighty Allaah had sent


Imaam-e-Rabbaani [Divine leader i.e.
Gangohi] as the savior for His worried
and afflicted creations and has bestowed
on him the responsibility of
Ghausiyat [The highest status of
Redresser]. So that he would rescue those
people who are worried, troubled and
ailing. So that he would help those who
are disheartened and hopeless due to
sickness and difficulties His [Gangohi's]
tongue which gave duaa [supplication]
70

was protected by Almighty Allaah and it


gave the proof of his sainthood and having the robe of honor of being Ghausiyat [a
Redresser] at all times and his shadow of
accomplishment and mediation through
which the needs of thousands of people
were fulfilled.
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, pp. 292, 305, vol 2)

What is Naanutah and Gangoh


considered due to the association of
Gangohi and Naanotvi? View this:
Because of them it has become Maqaam-eMahmood [the highest place of praise].
Why should not both Naanutah and
Gangoh feel proud of themselves? It is
extremely good to remember Gangoh even
while being in Kabah. Just see, They
would roam around Ka'bah also inquiring
about the way to Gangoh, those who had
in their hearts a keen desire to percieve.
(Kulliyaat-e-Shaiekh-ul-Hind, by Mahmoodul Hasan
Deobandi printed by Maktab-e-Mahmoodiyah, Lahore)

Regarding the living room (hujrah) of


Hazrat Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah, Thanvi
Saahib writes:
During the period of war [(Ghadar) the
War of Independence 1857 AD], this room
was burnt down. The doors and walls of
this room still have the effects of that
burning. These are also from the time of
Hazrat Haaji Saahib (Allaah mercy on him).
People had even told me [Thanvi] to

71

remove them. I [Thanvi] said, No,


brother, I will not remove them with this
thought that the hands of Hazrat might
have touched them and his head might
have also touched the frame of this door
some times A maulvee saahib inquired
[from Thanvi], The place where some
pious people live, do those places have
some special blessings and noor
[luminance]? Thanvi said, I, myself, have
heard the saying of Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah
(Allaah have mercy on him); he used to say, Jaiy
Buzoorghan Baijaiy Buzoorghan [The
dwelling of a pious person is, in place of
the pious person, certainly there are
definitely blessings there.] Thanvi Saahib
said, Hazrat Maulana Shaiekh
Muhammad Saahib used to say, When
Hazrat Haaji Saahib (Allaah have mercy on him)
went for Hajj, I [Shaiekh Muhammad
Saahib] used to sit in his place and did zikr
[remembrance]. I felt more blessings and
effects. It is my experience that I do not get
this in another place.
(Qasas-ul-Akaabir, p. 114 by Thanvi printed AlMaktaabah-e-Al-Ashrafiyah, Lahore)

"This is my pride and joy that I am caught up


in the web of Rasheeds love,
I owe allegiance to this chain and I wholly
depend on it

As-Salaamu Alaiekum Wa Rahmat-tul-Laahi,


after the heartiest desires to express, I want
to say that a few days ago I had the
opportunity of meeting Maulvee
Munawwar Ali Saahib unexpectedly. He
said:
Hazrat Maulana [Gangohi] is angry with
you [Thanvi] because you have adopted
such traditions and ways of some of your
elders which is against the way of practice
of Hazrat [Gangohi]. So, it is very
important that you apologize to him and
make him happy. I was extremely grieved
and very miserable to hear this news. I
cursed myself and did not consider
anything else a provider of salvation apart
from facing the truth. Then, O our lord, at
that time I was drowning in the sea of
surprise and need and I was waiting for
someone to take me out of this worry and
sadness. All of a sudden, without any
intention, someone nearby called me and
said, Give your hand in my hands. I will
take you out of this deep ocean. And
obviously, a drowning person seeks the
help of a twig because he is in distress and
confusion.

And my condition was such that I was


several oceans away from my dearest helper, my curer [Alaa Hazrat Haaji Saahib], so
I quickly turned towards these spoken
words. But at the same time I did not forget this advice of my elders even for a day,
Saafa Saafa Lay lu Ganda Ganda Chhour Duo
[Take the clearer one and leave the dirty

75

ones]. So, when my efforts were


accomplished in kissing the sand from
beneath the slipper of this caller, I humbly
went before him and revived my hopes
with this intention that maybe my worries
would be recompensed. But when I
returned I felt thirstier and I was nearly
considering a mirage to be running water
[that is he felt he could be cheated]. Apart
from this, I saw within myself an increase
in surprise, a promotion of narrow
heartedness and fear that there was
nothing. Then I wrote all about my
heartiest feelings to my beloved like this,
My guide, my friend, companion of my
madness, savior of my world and my
religion, my rescuer have some pity on me
as I do not have any provision for my
journey beside your love. Creation is
flourishing from you and I am wondering.
O my guide, may the glance of mercy be
on me now. My lord, give me something
for the sake of Allaah, you are my bestowal
and I am your beggar towards Allaah.
Then Alaa Hazrat accepted my apology,
helped me, took me with love and piety
and anchored me to shore with safety.
Due to which I wrote this poetry with
desire and read these lines with sensitivity:

76

The love-viper has stung me and injected


poison in my heart,
Who will now read the mantra (the magic
formula) from whom should I keep the hope of
life?
Yes that beloved on whom my life is sacrificed,
He knows to dispel (with the magic formula) he
keeps the distressed near him.
And I give an oath by Allaah that I am
happy to consider Allaah as my Rabb
[Nourisher]. And in declaring that Islaam
is my religion and in accepting
Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] as
my Prophet, And my Shaiekh Hazrat
Imdaad-ul-Laah as the spiritual guide of
the entire world and the Saint. And you
[Gangohi] as the master, leader and rightly
-guided. So by considering them as such, I
have been able to write something. This is
my story and, by the oath of Allaah, this is
the truth and the real fact. This is only
right in which there is no lies, neither fabrication, nor fraud or comedy. So, O my
chief, please accept my excuse for the sake
of Allaah with your graciousness. In view
of your good, do not pay any attention to
any slander, fault finder and back-biter
and certainly do not consider me out of
your own group. I really hope on the Day
77

of Judgement that I will be resurrected


with you. But my courage does not allow
me to openly oppose this person [who
called me]. Because perhaps that person
has high status near Allaah and harming
him would become a cause of disgrace and
loss. There is no doubt in this that I
consider him in the group of those worthy
of blame but I do not have the position of
imaamat [leadership] [that he may be able
to stop him]. Yes, I have accepted this
mandatory on myself that any such way
which is against the traditions [Sunnah]
and the Book of Allaah, I will keep denying
it on the pulpit and inside the mehrab [place
in the masjid where the Imaam stands].
And this is my policy that this would
remain a hidden secret so that I would not
receive any harm or evil. And this is what
I hope from you and the people who read
this letter. There is nothing strange that
Allaah would create something after this
and this secret will be exposed and make
me, from head to toe, a portrait of waiting
that the message of forgiveness from you
Hazrat [Gangohi] would reach me. May
Allaah Taaalaa forever remain happy with
me, with you and with all the Muslims by
the grace of Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam], 29th Zil Qadah 1314 AH.

Meaning: "These people [Friends of
Allaah], who have high stations, have full
power to change things in the ideal world
as well as in this evident world. (They have
been given complete open permission)
These people with great powers and
knowledge, they are entitled to associate
everything in the universe to them. For
example, if these people [Friends of
Allaah] say, Their kingdom extends from
the earth to the heavens then they are
allowed to say so. (*)

(*) It is stated in Taleefaat-e-Rasheed, p. 241 written by Gangohi: Someone asked
Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Saahib, Who are the authors of Taqweeyatul Ieemaan and Siraat-eMustaqeem? Gangohi Saahib wrote in reply, Siraat-e-Mustaqeem and Taqweeyatul Ieemaan are
the books of Muhammad Ismaaeel Dehlvi and I am aware of these books. Moreover I am the
benefactor of the family of the author [Ismaaeel Dehlvi] and am fully aware of his views and

Meaning: "A seeker of this path should


strive his best to pay the due respect and
fulfil all duties, not only to the Prophets
and the Friends of Allaah, but to all true
Muslims [Mu'mineen], since all of them are
those who would work for the rescue of
this [seeker] and make recommendations
[mediate]. In this regard, the efforts of the
Prophets and the Friends of Allaah and
their recommendations [intercession] is
very obvious And the second group are
very swift and clever in being kind to the
people in distress and with problems.
They are active in fulfilling desires, solving
problems [dispelling difficulties]. They are
the appreciators of desirables, dispellers of
prohibited things, correct in
recommendations, firm in trying to make
connection with devotion and expression
of desires which is the conduct of being a
servant And, similarly, for the other
group [other nation] the connections of
obeying is clear. They have the status of
being the mediator between Allaah
Taaalaa and His creations. And the
ordinary people receive unseen benefits
from their truthfulness and
recommendations' and due to this, the
second group has superiority over the first
group which is not hidden from any
intelligent person.
In the same book he further says: "There is
no denial or doubt in the goodness of any
customary acts, like reciting Faatihah
[forwarding rewards] for the dead,
commemorating the anniversaries of those
who have passed away Araas [all Urs]

"Question: Is it permissible to
participate in any 'Urs [death anniversary]
in which the Qur'aan is recited and then
afterwards sweets are distributed?
Answer: It is not right to participate in any
81

and in doing nazr [giving alms] and niyaaz


[to offer gifts]; they are good rituals.

Urs

[death anniversary] or Meelaad [birth


celebrations] of the Prophet and none of
the death anniversarys or birth celebrations
are right.

(Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi, Fataawaa Rasheediyah, vol 3,


p. 94, printed by Kutub Khaanah-e-Raheemiyah, Dehli)

(It may be clear that Soyam [the third day],


Daswaa or Dahum [the tenth day] and
Chehlum [the fortieth day] are the titles and
the names given to Faatihah which are commonly used by the people for Ieesaal e
Sawaab. Here, by using this word "Faatihah
-haa", Ismaaeel Dehlvi Saahib has referred
to these names mentioned above).

"Soyem [the third day], Dahum [the


tenth day], Chehlum [the fortieth day]; all
these customs belong to the Hindus.
(Fataawaa Rasheediyah, vol 1, p. 99, by Rasheed Ahmad
Gangohi)

"The remembrance of all the condition


which has anything to do with the Prophet
of Allaah [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] is
considered very desirable and auspicious
by us. Whether they are related to his
blessed birth, or his [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam] excretion or urine, sitting or
standing as well as sleeping or
awakening.

When addressing the Prophet [Sallal


Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] one should always
keep in mind the status and the greatness.
And he should never be addressed as Yaa
Muhammad [O Muhammad] etc. As we
address ordinary people but he should be
addressed with respectful titles like Yaa
Nabiy-yal Laah, Yaa Rasoolal Laah (Sallal Laahu
Alaiekaa Wa Sallam) [O Prophet of Allaah, O
Messenger of Allaah].

"He is not a Muslim who recalls the


remembrance of the blessed birth of the
Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] and this
way is like that of the apostates."

the Holy Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] is like celebrating the birth of Kanahiya

It is our belief that whoever says that


such and such person has more knowledge
[someone who knows more] than the
Prophet (Alaiehim-us-Salaam), he is an infidel
and our respected scholars have already
given a Fatwaa [verdict] of infidelity
against a person who says like that
Shaietaan [Satan], the accursed, has more
knowledge than the Prophet [Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam].

In the book, Baraaheen-e-Qaatiah, which


is certified by Janaab Rasheed Ahmad
Gangohi, who is also known as the Aayaatul
Laah [The Sign of Allaah]," Mutaa'ul-Aalam
[The One Who is Obeyed by the Whole, The
World]" and the "Maawaa-e-Jahaan [The
Dweller of the World]" by the Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghis, it is stated:
In short, after seeing the conditions of
Shaietaan [Satan] and the Malak-ul-Maut
[Angel of Death], such should be considered
that is it not infidelity to prove encircled
knowledges of the world for the Pride of the
Universe [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam] without reference to any Qur'aanic
text and only on wrong assumptions? If it is
not infidelity then which part of Ieemaan is
it? The vastness of the knowledge given to

book. However, the word "than" is missing after the words "Iblees, the accursed" so the actual wording is:
"anyone who says, Iblees, the accursed beloved Prophet (Alaiehim-us-Salaam).' " This servant of the Ahle Sunnat
warns all the Wahaabi Deobandi Tableeghis, "Following your own bad habit of issuing a verdict (fatwaa) of infidelity against anyone merely on account of a printing error or extracting the wrong meaning from any writing;
if someone issues a harsh verdict against the writings of Gangohi Saahib which has been quoted by Janaab Husaien Ahmad, a scholars of Deoband, you would feel very annoyed and your bereavement would be worth seeing. My purpose of disclosing is every person who believes in Deobandi Wahaabi-ism should know that we,
Ahle Sunnat-Wa-Jamaa'at (Sunni Barelvi), do not keep differences with anyone without any unfounded reason
and do not issue verdicts (fataawaa) without exceptional research and concluding arguments etc. because our
aim is to prove what is right as right and whatever is wrong as wrong. We love the faithful for the sake of Allaah and we also have enmity with the wrong-doers for the sake of Allaah .

Shaietaan and the Angel of Death is proven


by the text [of the Qur'aan and Ahaadees].

text is refused and infidelity is proven.

[Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] is the Aalim-ulKhalaq (The Most Knowledgeable Amongst

be equal in knowledge of the Holy Prophet

belief that the excellent knowledge given
by Almighty Allaah to the Prophet [Sallal

given to the angels closest to Him and to

And because He [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa

more?"

(Dear readers, the book, Baraaheen-eQaati'ah has been certified by Janaab

Wahaabi Tableeghi consider the writings
of Ambethvi Saahib as correct then Thanvi
Saahib and Sanbhali Saahib and all those
Deobandi Wahaabi scholars who had
signed Al-Muhannad will have to be
declared as infidels and polytheists. And if
the numerous writings of all these scholars
are deemed to be correct then Ambethvi,
Gangohi and Husaien Ahmad Tandvi
Madni will have to be declared as infidels,
apostates and accursed. This means that
whatever the endorsement of the writings
of whichever scholar is done by these
Wahaabi Deobandis, how will they be able
to save themselves from infidelity? Instead
they will also lose their own faith.)

Writings of the scholars

Verdicts of the scholars

of Deoband (4)

of Deoband (4)

The religious master of the Deobandi


Wahaabi Tableeghis, Ashraf Ali Thanvi
Saahib says: "If, according to Zaied [any
common person], this belief is stated as
correct that the sacred personality [of the
Prophet] has the knowledge of the unseen
then the concern is that does this unseen
mean some unseen or all unseen? If it
means only some unseen things then what
is the distinction of the Prophet [Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam] in it? Such knowledge of
the unseen is also possessed not only by
Zaied or Amar [meaning any common person] but is [proven] for even every child,
mad man and insane person, and even for
animals and beasts."

He who considers or declares the


knowledge of the Prophet (Alaiehis-Salaam) is
equal to the knowledge of Zaid or Bakr [any
common person) or animals or mad men is
an absolute infidel."
(Al-Muhannad, p. 30, by Janaab Khaleel Ahmad
Ambethvi and Ulamaa e Deoband)(*)

Also this: Anyone who keeps such


believe that [The knowledge of unseen
which is possessed by Rasoolal Laah [Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] is also possessed by
every child, every insane person, instead it
is also possessed by every animal and
every mammal.] or says it without
believing obviously or as a hint: I consider
that person out of the circle of Islaam. This
person denies the absolute Truth and
disrespects Huzoor Sarwar-e-Duaalam
[King of Both Worlds], Fakhre-Bani
Aadam [The Pride of All Progeny of
Aadam], [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam].

(*) It should be clear the book called Al-Muhannad bears the signatures of Janaab Mahmoodul Hasan,
Aashiq llaahi Meruthi, Ahmad Hasan Amrohvi, Mufti Kifaayatul Laah and many other small and big friends of
scholars of Deoband It is also a miracle that the nature of infidelity of these blasphemous writings of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars has been certified as infidelity not only by one or two, but hundreds of Deobandi scholars have certified it. Their writing, which is the basis of differences between Deobandis and Sunnees
(Barelvis), has been proven to be infidelity by Al-Muhannad and those who endorse such writings are proven as
infidels by Al-Muhannad. Indeed, by publishing Al-Muhannad these Deobandi Wahaabis have proven that the
path and standpoint of Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan (Allaah have mercy on him) is the true one. Undoubtedly, Truth always triumphs. For details, the answer to Al-Muhannad can also be seen in the book Ulamaa-e
Deoband ki Maqaariyaa [The Mischiefs of the Scholars of Deoband]

(Bastul-Banaan, p. 10, Thanvi, printed by Jaan


Muhammad ilaah Bakhsh Tajiraan Kutub, Lahore)

It should be noted the words like "such" is


not only used in the meaning of "being like
something" or similarity but it is also
used in the meaning of "in measure" and
means here in the writing of him [Thanvi
Saahib]. In the controversial writing of
[Thanvi Saahib], the words like this" has
been used in the sense of "measure" and
"this much," so what is the similarity here?"
(Tauzeeh-ul-Bayaan, pp. 8, 17, by Murtazaa Hasan
Darbhangi)

"Hazrat Thanvi has used the word


"like this not "this much" in his writing, if
the word "this much" was used, then the
fear would have been justified that
[Maaazal Laah Allaah forbid] the
knowledge of the Prophet (Alaiehis-Salaam)
had been made equal to that of others
The word "like this" indicates a similarity.

Hence to say that the knowledge of


the Unseen is possessed by anyone beside
Allaah is absolute polytheism."

(Ash-Shahaab-us- Saaqib p. 102, by Janaab Husaien


Ahmad Tandvi Madni)

(Fataawaa Rasheediyah, p. 90, part 3, by


Gangohi, Taaleefaat-e-Rasheediyah p. 72, Gangohi)

(Murtazaa Hasan Saahib does not accept


the word "like this" as an expression of
similarity, if he does accept it as a simile
then infidelity would be definite. And
Husaien Ahmad Madani Saahib says that
the word "like this" is a simile and is trying
to prove what Murtazaa Saahib labels as an
infidelity as correct. And Murtazaa Saahib
is trying to prove in the writing of (Thanvi
Saahib) what he thinks is correct in the
statement of Husaien Ahmad Saahib.
Therefore both of these two, in the process
of saving Thanvi Saahib, are also proven as
infidels, according to the verdict (fatwaa)

"The Knowledge of the Unseen is


exclusive to Almighty Allaah. To say it as
an interpretation that it is also held by
anyone else is not without the risk of
committing polytheism.
(Fataawaa Rasheediyah, p. 32, Part 3, Gangohi,
Taaleefaat-e-Rasheediyah p. 92 by Gangohi)

"And to believe that He [Sallal Laahu


Alaiehi Wa Sallam] had knowledge of the
Unseen is open polytheism.

of each other).
"If some knowledge of the unseen is
meant then what is the distinction of the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) in it?
Knowledge of some of the unseen is
possessed by even those who are not the
Prophets (Alaiehim-us-Salaam).

Anyone who says the knowledge of


the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is
like [that of] children, mad men and
animale is an infidel, Murtad [apostate],
Maloon [accursed] and a dweller of Hell.
(Ashad-dul A'zaab, p. 14 by Murtazaa Hasan
Darbhangi)

(Taghyeer-ul-Unwaan, p. 18, by Ashraf Ali Thanvi,


printed Muhammad Usmaan Taajir Kutub Dareebah,

"The knowledge of the unseen which


is direct [personal] is exclusive to Allaah,
but knowledge of the unseen [Ilm-e-Ghaieb]
which is indirect [through revelation etc.]
is possible for the creations.
(Bastul Banaan, p. 10, Ashraf Ali Thanvi)

"It has been accepted in Hifz-ulleemaan [by Ashraf Ali Thanvi] that the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) had
been given knowledge of the unseen by
Allaah.

In the Manifestation it is proven


about some of the unseens that even the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) knows
about them and the association of such
knowledge towards the Prophet is
allowed.
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, p. 423, vol 7, by Thanvi)

90

There is no doubt in this: the partial


knowledge of the unseen of the Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is included in
his exclusive attributes of Prophethood.
Who denies this?
(p. 134, Tarjee-hur-Raajih by Thanvi, printed Ashraf-ul-

No one should have the doubt that


the knowledge of unseen which is only the
specialty Almighty Allaah is also shared by
Prophets. Because there are two specialties
in the Knowledge of Unseen of Almighty
Allaah: one, His knowledge is His own and
two, it is absolutely vast. Here [among the
Prophets] it [knowledge of unseen] is not
their own personal [knowledge] because it
is through revelation and not vast because
only some special matters are meant. So its
meaning is the general knowledge of the
unseen and not any particular. (*)

"Nobody should have this believe


that the Prophets or the Friends of Allaah
or the Imaams or the Martyrs have the
knowledge of the Unseen. He should not
have this believe in respect to even the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu `Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and one
should not even say such things in his
praise. (Otherwise, he will be a polytheist).
(p. 25, Taqweeyat-tul-Ieemaan)

________________________
(*) It is heard those [Barelvi scholars] prove the knowledge of unseen for Prophet of Allaah (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) but they do not prove it to be enclosed like Almighty Allaah. They accept His (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) knowledge of unseen has limitations. Ilaa Aie Yadkhula Ahlil Jannatil Jannah Wa Ahlin
Naarin Naar [Till the people of paradise enter Paradise and the people of hell enter hell]. If this is correct then
polytheism is not proven by believing like this also. Because the special attribute of Almighty Allaah is enclosed
knowledge, it is not limited knowledge. So now between us and these [Barelvi scholars], [it] is possible for
differences in one point: did it happen or it did not? Meaning, was this knowledge Ma Yadkhula Ahlil Jannatil
Jannah Wa Ahlin Naarin Naar [Till the people of paradise enter Paradise and the people of hell enter hell] given to
the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) or not? We say that this [knowledge of unseen] by itself is possible to
being given but did it really happen? It is not proven anywhere by the Shareeat and these Barelvi say it is proven.
In front of us all, the evidences of these [Barelvi] give for its presence, they are not complete and they do not prove
their claim. So the maximum accusation which is asserted on these [Barelvi scholars] is that they accept something
which is not proven by the evidences of the Shareeat and this is the quality of a innovator, not of an
infidel. (Qasasul Akaabir p. 253 by Ashraf Ali Thanvi)
91

"People say the Prophets and Friends


of Allaah do not have knowledge of the
unseen, but I [Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah] say,
Whichever way the rightly guided people
cast their eyes, they discover and perceive
the Unseen.

" Only Allaah knows about the matter


of the Unseen. What would the Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) know about it?
(Taqweeyat-tul-leemaan, p. 125, by
Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti, printed by Faiez-eAalam, Saddar Bazaar, Dehli)

(Shamaaim-e lmdaadiyah, vol. 2, p. 115 and


Imdaad-ul-Mushtaaq, p. 76)

It has been said in more than one


place in the Holy Quraan that no one has
the knowledge of the Unseen beside
Almighty Allaah But with this it is also
written in the Quraan, He tells about it to
which ever Prophet He desires amongst
His Prophets. Now the question is: when
we say someone else besides Allaah has
been given the knowledge of unseen, can
this also be called the knowledge of unseen
or not? Hazrat [Muhammad Qaasim
Naanotvi] has said that So no one
understands the meaning of associating the
knowledge of Unseen with Ghaier Allaah
[someone other than Allaah], they have
been given the knowledge of Unseen by
themselves but rather they only think this
that Almighty has given them from this
knowledge of Unseen.

"So all four Imaams of the faiths and


all scholars agreed on this that the
Prophets (Alaiehum-us-Salaam) were not aware
of the Unseen.
(Mas'alah Dar Ilm-i-Ghaieb, p. 2, Gangohi, by Daarul-Ashaaat Deoband)

(Sawaanih Qaasimee, p. 58, vol 2, by Manazir


Ahsan Jeelaani)

Therefore, [Thanvi] has divided the


meaning of the word Aalim ul Ghaieb [the
knower of the Unseen ] into two parts and
he [Thanvi Saahib] believes one part is
present in everybody.
92

(Ash-Shahaab-us-Saaqib, p. 106, Husaien Ahmad


Tandvi Madani)

This Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa


Sallam] informs us about the [knowledges
of the] unseen of all kinds: whether they
relate to the past or the present or to
future; to the names or the attributes of
Allaah; or to the Shari'ah rules or to the
truth or false of religion; or to the
conditions of the Heaven and the Hell; or
to the events after death; or about these
knowledge of the unseen. (This Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)) He is not at all
miser in letting us know about them.
(Marginal note of the Qur'aan, p. 764, Shabbeer
Ahmad Usmaani, by Madinah Press, Bijnor, 1355 AH)

He [Allaah] chooses amongst His


Prophets whom he wants and gives definite information of which ever unseen He
wants and He bestows them. The
conclusion is that the ordinary people are
definitely not informed of the Unseen
directly but the Prophets (Alaiehim-us-Salaam)
are informed.
(Marginal notes on the Qur'aan, p. 95, Shabbeer

"The summary is the knowledge of


the unseen is exclusive only to the Being
of Allaah, in which no one beside Allaah
is included... Similarly the information
of the knowledge of Unseen is also
exclusive to the Prophets which is not

93

shared by anyone beside the Prophets.


"Almighty Allaah has declared, I
have informed the Prophets about the
unseen.
(Ilm-e-Ghaieb, pp. 34, 35, by Qaari Muhammad
Taiyyib former organizer, Dar-ul-uloom, Deoband)

To resurrect the death, to cure the


blind and the lepers etc. and to give the
news of the unseen: these were all clear
miracles of Hazrat Ieesaa (Salutation on him).
(Explanation of Usmaani p. 17)

94

(Dear readers! after going through all the writings and verdicts (fataawaa) above, you
must have understood it clearly that these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, who speak with
differing languages, are denying and accusing each other amongst themselves. And they do
not realize that by their differing and contradicting views; instead of spreading the love of the
religion they are creating a trend amongst the people to distance themselves from religion. I,
this servant of Ahle-Sunnat have presented some examples of the writings and verdicts
(fataawaa) of the scholars of Deoband to expose the reality to the just minded people and
those who like fair dealing so they can save themselves from these thieves of religion. May
Almighty Allaah save us from them.)
Respected readers! You have seen the religious opinion of the scholars of Deoband in
the writings of their own fellow scholars of Deoband. You might be thinking that issuing the
verdict (fatwaa) of being an infidel by scholars is a simple matter. Instead of writing my own
opinion on this, I will present the statement of the scholar of Deoband, Janaab Murtazaa
Hasan Darbhangi.
On page 2 of his book Ashaddul 'Azaab he says, "The scholars of Islaam do not act
in haste, nor do anyone of them issue a fatwaa [verdict] of infidelity on small, imaginary and
jurisprudential matters. These sacred groups of scholars [Scholars of Islaam] will not dare to
do so unless infidelity [of some] becomes as clear as the sun. As far as possible, these scholars
bring out the true meaning of a statement by explaining it. But if someones heartiest desires
is to go to hell and he himself goes out of the circle of Islaam then these Scholars of Islaam are
forced to call him an infidel. The same way as it is infidelity to call a Muslim an infidel, in the
same way it is infidelity to call an infidel a Muslim. (*)
______________________________
(*)Janaab Ashraf Ali Thanvi says, It is also infidelity not to accept infidelity as infidelity.
When any person does not accept Musaielamah Kazzaab as a Prophet but does not call his beliefs
[of infidelity] as infidelity then will this person be called a Muslim? (Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, p.
123). Janaab Ashraf Ali Thanvi says,
Jurists [Muftees of religion] considers the association of infidelity to Muslims so bad that
until the moment they get the possibility [of infidelity], they do not associate a Muslim with this
[infidelity]. So from this it can be understood that how bad the association of infidelity is by itself.
So they should try to distance from any such action or statement where there is even a slight
chance of infidelity from a distance. Even if there is a doubt they should be very careful to great
lengths, because there is not a bigger crime in front of Almighty Allaah than infidelity. Therefore it
is known from the absolute text that Almighty Allaah will forgive all sins but He will absolutely not
forgive infidelity. From this, we can imagine what a great sin this is and how important it is to
save ourselves from it. (Risaalah Imdaad, of the month of Zil Qadah, 1336 AH, p. 50).
But sadly the condition of the scholars of Deoband is such that whatever they tell the
others, they themselves do not follow this guidance. They should remember this: Aataa muroonan
-Naasa Bil birri Wa Tansauna Anfoosakum [Do you enjoin righteousness upon (other) people and
forget yourself].(Chapter#2, Verse#44) Lima Taqooloona Maalaa Tafaloon [Why do you profess
which you do not practice]? (Chapter#61, Verse#2)

95

On page 3 and 2, he further says, "The scholars were extra careful but when there is no
possibility left in the wrong interpretation of the writings and the infidelity becomes as clear
as day then they have no option but to give a verdict of infidelity. As the poet says:

Agar Beenam Keh Naabeenaa Wa Chaah Ast


Agar Khaamoush Binsheenam Gunaah Ast

[If I see a blind man is standing in front of an open well then to remain quietly seated and to
not move would be a sin.]
Who will be held responsible if the scholars stay quiet at such time and the people go
astray? After all what is the job of the scholars? If they do not even tell the difference between
infidelity and Islaam then what will they do?(*)
On page 13 he says, "If near Khan Saahib [Maulana Ahmad Razaa], some scholars of
Deoband were really like what he thought them to be then it was mandatory for Khan Saahib
[Maulana Ahmad Razaa] to declare such [scholars of Deoband] as infidels. If he had not
pronounced them [scholars of Deoband] as infidels then he would have become an infidel
himself because anyone who does not call an infidel an infidel, he himself becomes an
infidel.
(p. 14)

He further says, "All the scholars of Deoband say this verdict of Khan Saahib [Maulana
Ahmad Razaa] is absolutely correct. Whoever says like this what [such as Muhammad
Qaasim Naanotvi has said in Tahzeer-un-Naas, Ashraf Ali Thanvi in Hifzul Ieemaan and
Ambethvi in Baraaheen-e-Qaatiah] is an infidel, an apostate and an accursed person. So
bring on, we will also sign your verdict; instead who ever does not call such apostates as
infidels, he himself will become an infidel.
___________________________
(*) For the knowledge of the readers I consider it very important to give further details of Taaweel.
Taaweel means to change the actual meaning into another meaning (from Farang-e-Aamirah certified by
Janaab Husaien Ahmad Nadvi Madni. Meaning, instead of the obvious definition, to give a different
meaning. The Scholars of Deoband have also accepted in their writings that it is absolutely not allowed to
do taaweel (change the meaning of a clearly obvious word) in any clear word. Therefore, Janaab
Muhammad Anwar Shaah Khashmiri says in his book, Ikfaar-ul-Muhi-deen (printed by Daar-ul-Kutub
Ilmiyah, Peshawar, p. 90), In a clear word the claim of taaweel cannot be accepted. (He has written a
whole chapter on this topic in his book, In the essentials of religion, taaweel (Continued on next page)

96

(Ashad-dul 'Aazaab, p. 12, 13)

On page 9 of his own book, the same Murtazaa Hasan Darbhangi says, "Respecting the
Prophets of Allaah and not degrading them is amongst the essential requirements of the
religion."
And another scholar of the Deoband, Muhammad Anwar Shah Khashmiri, on page
104 of his book Ikfaar-ul-Mulhideen (printed byAkota Khtak, Peshawar) says,
"The scholars of Islaam have said that to be rude, arrogant, insolent and disrespectful
to the grandeur of the Prophets (Alaiehim-us-Salaam) is infidelity even if the person doing so does
not intend to do so. Meaning that even with the intention of using words of disrespect then
is also infidelity.
Dear readers, you have seen what the scholars of Deoband have to say about those
who are disrespectful to the Prophets. Now see what punishment Ashraf Ali Thanvi, the
_______________________________
(Continued from page 96)... cannot be accepted. )
Like the word walad ul haraam (illegitimate son) we will only have the meaning of haraam zaadah (illegitimate son). By changing the meaning of haraam, we cannot consider it walad-emuhtaram (respected son or respected birth). Because even besides the clarity of the statement the
taweel which is done will be wrong and wrong taaweel is like infidelity. Therefore Anwar Shah
Khashmiri writes on p. 78 of this same book, Wrong taaweel is like infidelity and on the same page he
writes, To do taaweel in the essential of religion is not dismissing infidelity.
And Janaab Ashraf Ali Thanvi says, If the taaweel of the Jurist as explained is not correct then
his verdict [of infidelity] for the one proven of infidelity cannot save him from the real
infidelity. (Risaalah Imdaadiyah of the month of Shawwaal, 1336 AH, p. 23). It should be clear if in the
statement of any Muslim that if there is ninety nine percent of only doubt and clear infidelity is not
present then there will be a possibility of taaweel in his statement. But if the meaning of insult is clear
in the statement of another then to do taaweel in his statement by giving it any consideration is not
allowed.
Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib says,
The combination of Ieemaan and infidelity is only infidelity Otherwise there would be no
infidel in this world whose beliefs are all of infidelity. Many infidel are in favor of the Creator, many are
in favor of the next world. And when it is said that if there were ninety nine reasons of infidelity and one
percent of Ieemaan then it would be considered Ieemaan, by this it means that those reasons of any one
[unclear] saying or action in which both doubts [Ieemaan and Kufr] are present in one statement can
have many meanings. (Hakeem ul Ummat, p. 264, printed M. Shams ud Deen Taajiraan Kutub, Lahore 1967 AD)
Thanvi Saahib says, Any person who has one absolute reason of infidelity [he] will be called an
infidel and there are Ahaadees about such a person in whom there are no absolute reasons. And this
issue has this meaning that if in any matter by saying or by action there is a doubt of infidelity; or
nonexistence of infidelity or both are present and infidelity is even dominant and more; then it will not
be considered infidelity as well. Now this will not happen that absolute infidelity will not be declared
infidelity because the meaning of an infidel in whom all the reasons of infidelity are present. Otherwise
the infidelity of those for whom it is declared by the Divine text they will also not be declared infidels.
(Fataawah-Imdaadiyah, vol 4, p. 120, printed Mujtabaaee Press, Dehli 1346 AH)

97

Hakeem-ul-Ummat (Wiseman of Deobandis) of Deoband has prescribed for those who are
disrespectful.
On page 11 of his book Zaad-us-Sa'eed (printed by Matba-e-Intizaamee, Kanpur, 1322 AH)
Thanvi Saahib says, "It is known from indication of the Holy Qur'aan that to be disrespectful
once to the honorable personality of the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] [Allaah forbid], a
person is punished by Allaah with ten curses. Therefore Almighty Allaah has stated ten
statements of punishment for the mockery of the Prophet done by Waleed Bin Mugheerah.
Dear readers! Thanvi Saahib and all these scholars of Deoband who have been
disrespectful to the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) not only on one but on several
matters, so according to the statement of the same Thanvi Saahib, ten curses from Allaah will
surely be bestowed for every disrespectful action of these Deobandi Wahaabis. And for this,
the insolent of the Prophet can also be called the followers and associates of Waleed Bin
Mugheerah. After this detailed explanation does the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and
his associates want to save themselves from the curses of Allaah by acknowledging the
writings of infidelity as infidelity and their writers as infidels? Or do they want to collect the
deprivation of their religion in this world and eternal wrath for themselves by declaring these
writings of infidelity as correct?
Dear readers, the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and all the propagandists and
followers of Deobandi-ism insult us, the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaaat, and they impose the
allegation that our Imaam-e-Ahle Sunnat (leader of Ahle Sunnat) Alaa Hazrat Maulana Shah
Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) had kept a machine gun open for firing
salvos of infidelity against Muslims. The so-called scholars of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis
do not tell their people the reality. They mislead people by telling their own fabricated tales
and whatever these people want say about us, the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaaat, from their own
side (self-created). The people, for not knowing the facts, get the wrong ideas about us, the
Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat. This is the reason I think the people should be told the facts. So
that they may know, as to what extent these propagandists of Deobandi Wahaabism are liars
and dreadful.
Respected readers have read that the verdict (fatwaa) of infidelity against those
writings of infidelity of some of the scholars of Deoband which was given by Alaa Hazrat
Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him). After exhausting all arguments, all those writings were also
accepted as infidelity by the scholars of Deoband themselves. Beside Janaab Murtazaa Hasan
Darbhangi, Janaab Aamir Usmaani, a nephew of the renowned scholar of Deoband, Shabbeer
Ahmad Saahib Usmaani, has proven these writings of infidelity as infidelity in the issue of
the monthly "Tajalli", Feb-Mar 1957 (Deoband) and have opposed the point of view of the
Deoband. Recently, a great protest was organized throughout the Islaamic world against

98

Shaietaan Rushdie's book "Satanic Verses. The Deobandi Wahaabis, with the reference of the
book of their own Imaam Ibne Taimiyyah Alsaarim-ul-Masluul as the source have declared
anyone who is disrespectful to the Holy Prophet as an infidel and apostate and have given
the proof of this fact that the entire Muslim Ummaah unanimously agrees on it: a
disrespectful to the Holy Prophet is, in the eyes of all of them, an infidel and an apostate and
liable for execution.
As a result it is proven that the Imaam of the Ahle-Sunnat, Alaa Hazrat Maulana
Shaah Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) has absolutely not declared any
Muslim as an infidel. Nor had he opened a machine gun to declare anyone as a disbeliever.
Instead he had given the verdict of infidelity against those holding beliefs of infidelity and
those writing material of infidelity after exhausting all arguments in accordance to the
unanimous opinion of the Ummaah. And the writings of infidelity that this verdict (fatwaa)
was given has also been accepted as infidelity by the scholars of Deoband themselves. For
the knowledge of the readers I would like to say that the scholars of Deoband have also given
a verdict of infidelity against many scholars of their own path. Like their verdict about the
famous scholar of Deoband (of Rawalpindi) Ghulaam-ul Laah Khan, Abul-Alee Maudoodee
and Ghulaam Ahmad Pervaiz are prominent. Whereas, it is also their habit not to give a
verdict on clear infidelity for some of their own scholars even after clear infidelity is proven.
Rather, it is their habit that they prove even their clear statement of infidelity as Islaam and it
is their business to give political verdicts. Then to keep on changing them is their daily
living. Not only this but the readers must have seen the description of the verdict of
infidelity by Ashraf Ali Thanvi against Shiblee Numaani and Hameed-ud-Deen Faraahee in
my book Deoband to Bareilly. Therefore this saying of the Deobandi Wahaabi group that
the verdict of infidelity has only been given by the scholar of Ahle Sunnat of Bareilly, is a
great accusation. The Scholars of Ahle Sunnat truly have never called any Muslim as an
infidel. On the contrary, also see the condition of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi group.
The main aim of the Deobandi Wahaabism is to prove true Muslims as polytheists. (*)

-----------------------------------------------------------------(*) It must be explained for the information of the readers that every polytheist (mushrik) is without any doubt
an infidel (kaafir). Every infidel is not a polytheist but every polytheist will definitely be an infidel. In Shaa Allaah this servant of Ahle Sunnat will present a book on the basic beliefs of Islaam to the readers called "MayraaDeen" very soon in which in the light of the teachings of the Qur'aan and Sunnah all the details about infidelity
and polytheism will be given. Anyhow you will see some detailed facts about the subject of polytheism on the
following pages.
(Kaukab Noorani Okarvi)

99

Dear readers! These scholars and preachers of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis declare all
true Muslims who call, Yaa Rasoolal Laah (O Messenger of Allaah) as polytheists. These
people call those who celebrate Meelaad Shareef (the birth of the beloved last Prophet of
Allaah (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) as polytheists. Those who believe, according to the Qur'aan
and the Sunnah, Ilm-e-Ghaieb (The Knowledge of the Unseen) is granted by Allaahs permission to His Prophets (Salutation on them) and the Beloveds of Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them);
they (the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis) call them polytheists. Those who believe that the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is Haazir-o-Naazir (Omniscient and Omnipresent)
not in the physical form but in the spiritual form; they also call them polytheists. Those who
celebrate the 'Urs (death anniversaries) of the Beloveds of Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them) for
the sake of forwarding rewards for them; they also consider them polytheists. Those who go
to the shrine of the Beloveds of Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them) and kiss their graves or the cloth
covering their graves with love; they also call them polytheists and say to marry (do nikaah)
them is prohibited. Those who consider Prophets (Salutation on them) and the Friends of Allaah
(Allaah have mercy on them) as their rescuer with Allaah's permission, they also call them
polytheists. Those who do Giyaarahveen Shareef for forwarding rewards to the soul of Hazrat
Mahboob-e-Subhaani Saiyyidina Ghaus-i-A'zam (Allaah be pleased with him); they also call them
polytheists. Those who believe that Allaah alone has External and Exclusive powers over
everything, and only with Allaahs permission, the Beloved of Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them)
can use these powers (tasarrufaat); they also call them polytheists. Those who believe that the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) was not an ordinary man but believe him to be best
of all individuals and the luminance of Allaah; they also call them polytheists
Dear readers! If I write a list of things due to which true Muslims are called
polytheists by Deobandi Wahaabism then, according to them, every Muslim will be declared
polytheist. Anyhow from this brief list, you will know this very well that Alaa Hazrat
Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) had given the verdict (fatwaa) of infidelity against only a few
scholars of Deoband on a issue for which the entire Ummah unanimously agrees. But these
Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, the matter for which they are declaring true Muslims as
polytheists, for that the unity of entire Ummaah is one matter, even the Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis could not unite themselves for that. But the matter on which these Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars declare true Muslim as polytheists, those matters of Ahle Sunnat
Wa Jamaaat are also proven as correct by the books of the scholars of Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis. Whereas these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, they say those things which are
proven correct according to the Qur'aan and the Sunnah as wrong (in their own guess) but
they cannot prove these correct things as wrong. And they also collect for themselves the
torment of calling the right thing as wrong.

100

Dear readers! by now you must be fully aware that the machine gun for declaring true
Muslims as infidels is not kept open by the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaaat but it is kept open by
the propagandists of Deobandi Wahaabism. And day and night, they declare the true
Muslims all around the world as polytheists and infidels. Due to this we can justly say that
the real aim of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi-ism is to make true Muslims infidels. By giving
religious verdicts on these writings of infidelity of these scholars of Deoband Wahaabis, Alaa
Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on him) has only mentioned that these scholars are infidels but the
(recent) Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis are becoming infidels themselves by endorsing the
writings of infidelity of their elders and they are also making others into infidels by preaching to others to become their associates. (May Almighty Allaah protect us from the Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghis and their evilness).
The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" has repeated some accusations several
times in all three parts. He must be under the impression that he should deceive the people
of South Africa, India, or outside of Pakistan (other parts of the world) since common people
are not aware of the realities of matters and they do not have any special desire for doing
research on such matters (especially religious matters). So let us pour sand in the eyes of the
people, so that it will not take long to create false opinions against Alaa Hazrat Imaam of
Ahle-Sunnat, Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him).Although, to
hide the facts and to spit at the moon (meaning to fabricate), it is proven to be harmful for the
ones who do this. Nonetheless those whose foundation is laid on lies and whose habit is to
only speak lies: what association can they have with the Fear of Allaah? Those who are
incapable of seeing their own faults, they only find faults in the clean character of others.
View below the opinion of the scholars of Deoband about the religious steadfastness,
love of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), theological status, literary greatness and
excellence of Alaa Hazrat Imaam-e-Ahle-Sunnat, Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan
Barelvis (Allaah have mercy on him):
Ashraf Ali Thanvi says: "I have a great deal of respect in my heart for Ahmad Razaa.
He calls us infidels, but he says so due to the great love for the Holy Prophet that [is in his
heart] and does not say it due to anything else."
(Monthly Chattaan, Lahore, April 23, 1962 AD)

Khursheed Ali Khan, S.D.O. (Canal) says: A telegram was sent by a disciple of
Hazrat Thanvi from Bareilly informing him about the death of Maulana Ahmad Razaa
Barelvi which I read to him. On hearing this, Hazrat Thanvi recited the Qur'aanic verse, Innaa Lil-Laahi Wa In-naa Ilaiehi Raaji'oon. [Chapter 2 verse 56]. Someone from the audience
said, Maulana Barelvi has declared you an infidel and you are reciting the Qur'aanic verse on

101

his death. On this, Hazrat Thanvi said, Maulvee Ahmad Razaa Khan was a great Aalim
[scholar] and was immersed in the love of the Prophet. Whatever he understood from my
writings and on the basis of my writing whatever he wrote; it was correct. If I was in his
place and if he would have been in mine and if his pen would have written these words, then
on the basis of its meaning, I would have also thought what he thought, and I would have
also declared him an infidel. (Maulana Kausar Niyaazi has also written this story in his
column Mushaahidaat-e-Taassuraat (Daily newspaper Jang) which he had heard from
Muftee Muhammad Shafee Saahib Deobandi.)
Abul A'laa Maudoodi Saahib says: "I have great respect in my heart for the
knowledge and excellence of Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan Saahib. In fact, he had great
insight on religious knowledge, and his greatness is acknowledged even by those who
oppose him. The bitterness which was developed due to the disputed debates, they became a
cause of covering for his religious qualities and religious services.
(Weekly Shahaab, Lahore, Nov 25, 1962 AD)

Janaab Saiyyid Suleimaan Nadvi says: When this insignificant saw some books of
the departed Janaab Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan Saahib Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), my
eyes were astonished. I was amazed; do these really belong to the departed Maulana Barelvi
Saahib (Allaah have mercy on him), for whom only this much was heard that he was the interpreter
of the people of innovations and was only limited to some superficial problems? But today I
found out that no, not at all, he is not the representative of the people of innovation but he
seems to be a scholar and a masterpiece of the World of Islaam. The depth that is found in
the books of the Maulana [Ahmad Razaa] (Allaah have mercy on him), such depth is not even found
in the books of my respected teacher Janaab Maulana Shiblee Numaani Saahib and Hazrat
Hakeem-ul-Ummat Maulana Ashraf Ali Saahib Thanvi, Mahmood-ul-Hassan Saahib Deobandi
and Hazrat Maulana Shaiekh ul Tafseer Allamah Shabbeer Ahmad Usmaani.
(Monthly Nadvah p. 17, August, 1913 AD)

The famous writer of the book called Seerat-un-Nabee, Janaab Shiblee Numaani
says: Maulvee Ahmad Razaa Khan Saahib Barelvi was very passionate in his beliefs.
Besides this the tree of the knowledges of Maulana Saahib has such a high status that all the
scholars of religion of that period did not even have the significance of being a small twig of
grass in front of it. This unworthy has also seen many books of this Faazil-e-Bareilly, in which
Ahkaam-e-Shareeat and others books are also included and have also especially seen some of
the editions of the monthly magazine Ar-Razaa which was published under the guidance of
Maulana from Bareilly, in which very high standards of articles are printed.
(Monthly Nadvah, p. 17, October, 1964 AD)

Famous religious and political leader Maulana Muhammad Alee Jauhar says: The
famous religious leader of this period, Janaab Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan Saahib, is
undoubtedly a great Muslim leader. Even besides disagreements on certain issues, we still
accept his great personality and his being a religious guide because he is the greatest resercher, theological, writer, poet, minute examiner and man of truth of this era. Undoubtedly the
auspicious existence of such personalities is [a cause of] gratitude for us.
(Roznamah Khilaafat, Bombay, p. 4)

Janaab Muhammad Anwar Shah Kashmiri (headmaster of Daar-ul-uloom Deoband)


says: While I was writing the summary of the book Tirmizee Shareef and several other books
of Ahaadees, for details I needed to see the books of Ahaadees. I saw the books of Shia, Ahle
Haadees and Deobandis but my mind was not satisfied. In the end after the advice of a
friend I saw the books of Maulana Ahmad Razaa Saahib Barelvi. My heart was satisfied and
now I can write the summary of Ahaadees without hesitation. Undoubtedly, a chief scholar of
the people of Bareilly Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan Saahibs writings are pure and strong.
By looking at them we realize that this Maulvee is a great scholar of religion and a
theologist.
(Monthly Haadee, p. 21, Deoband, Jamadiy-yul-Awwal 1330 AH)

Shaiekh-ul-Adab of Daar-ul-uloom Deoband, Janaab Aazaaz Alee says: This


insignificant is forced to accept this: if there is a authentic researcher or a scholar in this
period, he is Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi. Only because I have not seen a scholar with a
broader vision and such eminence courage like Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan, whom we have
been calling an innovator, infidel and polytheist up til today. His [Faazil-e-Barelvis]
evidences are not in conflict with the Quraan and Sunnah but they are in harmony.
Therefore, I will advise you, if you have any problem of any kind in a difficult issue then you
should go to Bareilly and do research from Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan Saahib Barelvi.
(Magazine, Al-Noor, Thaanah Bhavan, p. 40, Shawwaal-ul-Mukkaram 1342 AH)

Justice Malik Ghulaam Ali Saahib says, "The fact is, so far we have been under a
great misconception about Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan Saahib. I have reached to this
conclusion after going through some of his writings and fataawaa [verdicts] that the depth of
knowledge which I saw in him is rarely found in scholars. Also the love of Allaah and the
Prophet that pours out of each and every sentence written by him is found in few scholars.
(p. 14, Armaghaan-e-Haram, Lucknow)

Janaab Mu'een-ud-Deen Nadvi says: "The late Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan Saahib
Barelvi was one of the most knowledgeable religious scholars amongst the scholars and

103

authors who lived in present times. He had a vast and deep insight on religious knowledge,
especially Jurisprudence and Ahaadees. The insight and research with which he has answered
questions of the scholars fully reflect his comprehension, deep knowledge, power to derive
from the Quraan, his intelligence and his intellectual capacity. His learned and researched
fataawaa are worthy of being studied by both his friends and his opponents.
(Monthly Maaarif, Azamghar, edition September, 1949 AD)

Mufti Intizaamul Laah Shahaabi says: "The late Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan
(Allaah have mercy on him) was a topmost scholar of these times. He was very well versed in the
details of Jurisprudence. Qaamoosul Kutub Urdu, compiled under the supervision of Dr.
Maulvee Abdul Haqq, mentions the books of Maulana [Ahmad Razaa Khan] and carries
notes on them. I have already gone through Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan's translation of the
Holy Qur'aan and Fataawaa Rizwwiyah etc. Maulana's Natiyah Kalaam [poetical works in
praise of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)] is very effective. My friend Dr. Siraaj-ulHaqq PhD, is an admirer of Maulana's poetical work and addresses the Maulana as Aashiq-eRasool [The Lover of the Holy Prophet]. The Maulana had a deep insight on the religious
information.
Allamah Niyaaz Fatehpuri says: "I have seen Maulana Ahmad Razaa. He was a man
of extraordinary learning and grace. His study was also extensive and deep. The light of his
knowledges was visible from his face [humanoid visage]. Despite his humility and
compliance his beautiful face exuded an astonishing sort of awe."

Janaab Jaa'far Shah Phulwari says: "Janaab [Ahmad Razaa Khan] Faazil-e- Barelvi had
command over the Knowledge of Islaam, Tafseer, Hadees, and Fiqh. He also had an excellent
knowledge of Logic, Philosophy and Mathematics. Along with the love of the Prophet [Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] he was so overwhelmed with the respect of the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam] that he could not tolerate even the slightest disrespect. If he found no valid excuse
or taweel for any disrespect, he had no hesitation in hurrying to assert a fatwaa [verdict]
against any person however powerful that person might be He was so annilated in the love
of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam Wa Alay Wa Ashaabihi Wa Baarik Wa Sallam) that it was not
distant, from exaggeration. These demands of respect had made him very sensitive and
when this sensitivity is developed to a certain delicate point then it is not a strange
phenomenon that sternness is exhibited in ones nature. If certain disrespectful sayings can
be accepted as a zeal of sentiments regarding the Oneness of Allaah then to declare someone
a non-believer can also be considered as the demand of love and respect. I, therefore,
consider Faazil-e-Barelvi Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan excusable in this regard. But I consider

104

this right is exclusive only to that Faazil person, who is, [like Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan]
immersed in the love and respect [of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)].
Janaab Shabbeer Ahmad Usmaani says: "To call Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan bad
due to the crime of declaring someone a non-believer is very appalling because he is a great
scholar of religion and a high status researcher. The death of Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan is
a very great tragedy for the Islaamic World and it cannot be ignored.
(Monthly Haadi, Deoband, p. 21, Zil Hajj, 1369 AH)

The father of Janaab Muhammad Yoosuf Banori, Janaab Zakariya Shah Banori says:
"If Allaah Almighty had not let [Maulana] Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi to be born in India
then Hanafiyyat would have been finished in India.
A Wahaabi scholar, teacher of Muraadabad, Janaab Fakhr-ud-Deen Muraadabadee,
headmaster says, "Our differences with Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan are in one place but I
have great pride in his accomplishments. Till today we can say this very well with pride to
the non-Muslims that if all the knowledges of the world can be accumulated in any one
person then that person can only be a Muslim. See, a personality like Maulana Ahmad Razaa
Khan is still present in the midst of the Muslims today, who equally excels in all the
knowledges of the world. Sadly, now with his departure on this day, our pride has also
departed.

Janaab Abul Hassan Alee Nadvi says: The expertise he [Faazil-e-Barelvi] had on The
Jurisprudence Hanafiyyah and its components; in this period you cannot find its equivalent.
(Nuzhatul-Khawaatir, p. 41, vol 8, printed Dak-kan)

A famous journalist of Mudoodi Jamaaat, Janaab Manzoor-ul-Haqq says: When


we read the books of this particular Imaam, [Faazil-e-Barelvi] then we know this person is
alone more powerful than all the scholars for his excellences and great intelligence.
(Monthly Hijaaz Jadeed, p. 54, New Dehli, January 1989 AD)

In the edition of Daily Jang, Lahore, Oct 13, 1990 AD, the column which comprises of
statements of the scholars of Deoband about Alaa Hazrat Faazil-e-Barelvi by Maulana
Kausar Niyaazi (Hayaat Muhammad) is an acceptance of this reality that Alaa Hazrat Barelvi
was a true lover of the Prophet, a unique scholar of the religion of Islaam in this time and
benefactor of the Nation.

105

To find out more views about the impression of his personality you should see the
books "Imaam Ahmad Razaa in the Eyes of Men of Intellect" in Khayaabaan-e-Razaa; the book,
Faqeeh-e-Islaam, Imaam Ahmad Razaa Number, in Al-Meezaan, Bombay and the book, "Jahaan-eRazaa,"in the weekly "Muqaatlaat-e-Yaum-e-Razaa (Part 2), Lahore.
The Imaam of the Ahle-Sunnat, A'laa Hazrat Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan
Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), besides being the author of more than thousand books and well
versed in fifty five different branches of knowledges and arts(*) and along with having a
unique personality of his time, was also a poet of high caliber. He served religion through all
the branches of knowledges and a variety of fields of arts. His poetry is very popular
amongst all people, our own and others. The collection of his poetical work is called
"Hadaayiq-i-Bakhshish" which is divided in two authentic parts.

After Alaa Hazrat passed away one of his devotees, Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan
Saahib, with the cooperation of the friends collected the unpublished poetic work of Alaa
Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on him). He made efforts to collect all of his unpublished poems from
every person living in different cities in near and far areas. Yet, nothing can be said with
guarantee whether these works are certainly those of Alaa Hazrat Faazil-e-Barelvi (Allaah have
mercy on him) or not. His authentic poems are only those which were published in two volumes
during his lifetime.
The entire responsibility of the poems included in the third volume was on Maulana
Mahboob Ali Khan Saahib but unfortunately he could not do the research and attestation
along with proof-reading. Moreover, before the partition (of India and Pakistan), the printing
presses in India were mostly not under the ownership of the Muslims. Just like how the
condition of Muslims in non-Muslim countries is now. The people in non-Muslim printing
presses paid no attention and some verses were printed in the wrong order. Friends were
sayings, Indeed, this is the mischief of the evil-doers. Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan
promptly corrected the state of affairs and an apology was published and distributed
throughout the whole country. Therefore with these posters, pamphlets, newspapers and fataawaa which stated the entire detail, all objection diminished.(*)

(*)The detailed published material and repentance of Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan can be seen in
the the Zil hij 1374 AH issue of the monthly magazine Sunnee" of Lucknow. In 1955 AD, the
(continued on next page)

107

Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan had compiled the third volume of the poetic work of
Alaa Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on him). He himself says: "The calligraphist and the proprietor of
the Naabaha Steam Press were both irreligious.(*) I had made it clear to the calligraphist and
the proprietor of the press that this Qaseedah was not fully acquired and these couplets are not
continuous, meaning they are not in continuous order. [The subject matter of the couplets is
separate from one another]. Hence these couplets would not be printed together and the
word "separate" was to be written in large font before the couplets. I also told them the order
in which the couplets of the ode [qaseedah] was to be printed. But the calligraphist and the
proprietor of the press, either deliberately or by mistake, paid no attention to the order in
which they were to be printed. After the book was printed, this faqeer [Mahboob Ali Khan]
had repeatedly published his apology. May Allaah and the Messenger of Allaah (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam ) accept my repentance! And may my Sunnee Muslims brothers also forgive
me, this faqeer, for the sake of Allaah and His beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)."
Respected readers! Please notice that a mistake was published in the printing of an
unpublished and un-authenticated poetic work of Alaa Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on him) after his
passing away. The man responsible for the mistake repeatedly got his repentance printed in
the form of posters, pamphlets, newspaper articles and fataawaa, because he is intensely
conscious of his mistake. His ego does not make it an issue of false pride, with his
explanations he did not try to explain those wrong things as right, rather, after
acknowledging his mistake he published his apology. All the objection by his own people
and others end with the publication of his repentance. But see the behavior of the people on
the other side. How foolish are the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis who are the residents of
South Africa? The photocopy of p. 37 of Hadaayiq-e-Bakhshish vol. 3 is reproduced on p. 7 of
the booklet "Johannesburg to Bareilly" vol. 2 which perhaps they have published with pride.
But these blind people also seem to be deprived of insight. In this photocopy, the word
"separate" is written in bold letters. A line is also drawn before the couplets which is the
cause of objection by the author of Johannesburg to Bareilly to separate them from the rest
of the material.
Call it a miracle of the Divine, that by printing the photocopy of p. 37 of "Hadaayiq-e___________________________
(continued from page 107) detailed fatwa (verdict) of the Shah e Imaam of the famous Fatehpuri
Masjid of Delhi and renowned scholar, Mufti-e-A'zam Muhammad Mazhar-ul Laah (Allaah have mercy
on him) called "The Qur'aanic Verdict of Daar-ul Iftaa, Dehli was published in the form of a booklet and
distributed throughout the country. All the details on this subject are given in it. The accusation faded
after the publishing of the details and the repentance.

Bakhshish vol. 3 on p. 7 of "Johannesburg to Bareilly"vol. 2, the Deobandi Wahaabi


Tableeghis of South Africa have made themselves an object of ridicule throughout the world
with their own hands and because of it, the statement of Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan is also
justified.
Now nearly after thirty-three or thirty-four years, these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis
of South Africa are criticizing Alaa Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on him) once again in reference to
these couplets under the mistaken impression that in South Africa, people would hardly
know the details of an event which occurred in India in 1955 AD. Besides in any case, who
would be investigating it? So that they would succeed in establishing the public opinion
against Alaa Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on him). These self-proclaimed monopolists of religion,
who call themselves rightly guided scholars, think that their conspiracies and wicked doings
will be beneficial for them. But they do not realize that whatever a person was destined for in
the beginning (Azal), it has already materialized.
It is the destiny of the Mullaa-worshipping people of Deoband that, in spite of the
wrong doings of their Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars, they are fated to defend and
praise their so-called scholars. It is our great good fortune that Almighty Allaah has blessed
us (The Sunnees) with His tremendous Grace, to be able to praise and defend the honor of His
beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), his progeny, his companions and the Friends of
Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them). May the Merciful Allaah eternally preserve this honor and
distinction for us, and may the Merciful Allaah end our lives as slaves of His beloved Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).

If these self-proclaimed rightly guided scholars accept the principles and rules of
justice and equity then they should tell us that once the reality is cleared, is there any room
left for raising accusations? If not then these scholars of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis of
Deoband should stop criticizing the Imaam of Ahle-Sunnat, Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan
Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) and should accept their own severe blunder. And they should
save themselves from collecting the wrath of accusing and condemning a true Muslim.
The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" on p. 11, vol. 1, has copied the fatwaa of
the scholars of Deoband, Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi and Khaleel Ahmad Ambethvi, in regard
to celebrating the Meelaad Shareef of the last Prophet of Allaah (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) (*)

___________________________
(*) To learn the standpoint of us, the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat, regarding Eid-Meelaad-unNabee (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) read my book Islams First Eid (Kaukab Ghufira Lahu)

109

according to which to celebrate Meelaad Shareef is, like how the Hindus celebrate the
birth of their god, Kanahiya.
For its clarification, but without reference to any book, the author of "Johannesburg to
Bareilly" has imposed on us the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat the worst kind of allegation, for
which he will surely be punished in this world and hereafter In Shaa Allaah. We the AhleSunnat-Wa-Jamaaat, supplicate to Almighty Allaah to give him an awful punishment here in
this world and in the next as well.
Read the real words of the author "Johannesburg to Bareilly. These are the exact
words: "Hazrat Moulana Rashid Ahmed Gangohi forbade Meelad because the
Meelad reciters copy and imitate the Blessed Birth of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi
Wasallam [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] in the following manner; that a lady sits
behind a curtain with a baby in her lap. When the Meelad reciters mentions the
birth and that Aamina is going through severe labour pains, the lady behind the
curtain starts moaning and groaning as if she is really experiencing labour.
Suddenly she pinches the baby and the baby cries out aloud. On hearing this cry
the Meelad reciters judge it to be the cry of the Blessed Birth, and start chanting,
Ya Nabi Salaamolaik, Ya Rasool Salaamolaik. They tie up small pieces of cloths
with bloodstains on it to mark the Blessed Birth. They mimic the scene as if it
is really taking place.
La'natul Laahi Alal Kaazibeen! (May the curse of Allaah curse be on the liars!)
Dear readers! This servant of the Ahle-Sunnat would like to say whatever has been
written above by the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" is entirely his own self-created
fictitious and distorted story and it is absolutely severely disrespectful to the Holy Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). For any Sunnee Muslim of the world with correct beliefs, to
actually do like this is one thing, they could not even think like this. This dirty thinking is
only a portion of these filthy Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars. It the view of us Ahle-eSunnat-Wa-Jamaaat that whoever does this, he has nothing to do with Islaam. It is my
challenge to the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and to every preacher of Deobandi
Wahaabi-ism: they cannot prove that this (what was written by this wicked person) is
practiced anywhere in any Meelaad Shareef gatherings held by true believers of Ahle Sunnat
Wa Jamaaat. He must accept it that, by asserting such severe allegations, he has not only
hurt the feelings of true Muslims but has also been disrespectful to the Holy Prophet (Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and his pious respected mother, Hazrat Aaminah (Allaah have mercy on her)
and has invited the wrath of Allaah. In Shaa Allaah, this evil minded person wicked will be
surely punished for his immense slander.

110

Dear readers! The Deobandis Wahaabis have abused us Ahle-Sunnat-WaJamaaat in all three parts of the booklets Johannesburg to Bareilly according to the basic
aim of Deobandism and their favorite dreadful habit. By creating many baseless accusations
of their own they have imposed wrong allegations on us, Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat, and have
made a shameful effort to turn the general public again us. Besides this, the author of the
booklet "Johannesburg to Bareilly has wrongly quoted some verses of different poets and by
presenting their wrong and twisted meaning, they have exhibited their worst habit (i.e. their
favorite pastime being slandering).
It was my, this humble servant of the Ahle-Sunnats, wish to dissect each and every
sentence, rather each word, of Johannesburg to Bareilly" and present a post-mortem report
to the readers. But the manuscript became so big that friends advised me to withhold part of
it for the time being and to present it in volume 2 of the rejoinder of the reply of
"Johannesburg to Bareilly. This was a right advice and in the present volume under your
scrutiny all the accusations and allegations raised by Deobandi-ism on us, the Ahle-SunnatWa-Jamaaat, have been (by the grace of Allaah) answered well and adequately. This servant
of the Ahle-Sunnat submits that, by indulging in such acts, these Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis, instead of harming us, expose their own ugly faces. And the people must have
come to know as to how ugly and what great liars these Deobandism and scholars of
Deoband are. May Allaah protect us from them and their evil.
Dear readers! The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and all scholars and
followers of the Deoband Wahaabi Tableeghi creed have considered religion as their
monopoly. In each and every statement these people call true Muslims as polytheists and
innovators. As if, in front of themselves, only they are Muslims and all the true Muslims of
the world have nothing to do with Ieemaan and Islaam. Though this is only their defective
thinking which has nothing to do with reality. These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis without
any doubt do no justice, rather they indulge in oppression. This is the definition of oppression (zulm): to call what is right as wrong and what is wrong as right and to hold someone
else guilty for the crimes of another. These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi people call acts
which are lawful and desirable according to Sunnah as polytheism and innovation. Readers
should decide for themselves: if calling lawful and good acts as wrong and bad, is not oppression then what is it? And it has been clearly declared in the Qur'aan, "Surely, Almighty
Allaah does not guide those people who oppress." (Verse #144, Chapter# 6 )
On page 15 of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" vol. 1, the author has raised the following
severe accusations on true Muslims. He says: "Those who go to the Urs [the death
anniversaries of the Saints and Friends of Allaah] and make sajdah (prostrate) to

111

the graves, pray for a boon or ask for a favour from the inmates of the graves,
and make tawaaf [to circulate around] of the graves; to solemnize marriages
with them will inculcate these Shirk practices in them and others as well. Therefore unless they dont make taubah and refrain from such Shirk practices, nikah
[a marriage contract] is not allowed until then. I have already said that this is great a
slander on us. Kissing a grave or the covering of the grave is out of love and this is also
proven to be a correct practice according to the writings of Thanvi Saahib, the Hakeem-ulUmmat of the Deobandis. (*) To call this a polytheist (shirk) practice is a great injustice. No
Sunnee Muslim prostrates before anyone beside Almighty Allaah and does not indulge in the
act of circling any grave, place etc. except the Kaabatul Laah (the Holy Kabah) and neither
considers to do so as lawful. Those who accuse Sunnee Muslims of being grave eulogizers
and grave worshippers etc. are indeed oppressors. In the writings of these Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghi scholars who declare true Sunnee Muslims as polytheists; their opinion, according
to their own verdicts, regarding their own stalwart scholars is of being polytheists but they
have no concern with their own polytheism. It is possible that these Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis are not even aware of the correct meaning of polytheism and innovation.
I consider it necessary to humbly state before my readers our beliefs regarding
polytheism (shirk) and innovation (bidat) according to the Qur'aan and the Sunnah, so that
readers may know what great transgressors these Deobandi Wahaabis are who call us, AhleSunnat-Wa-Jamaaat (Barelvi), polytheists.
Readers see this: It is our belief that no one can be equal to or is included in the Being
and Attributes of Almighty Allaah, who is the One and Unique, in His names and in His acts.
We, the Sunnee Muslims, consider and believe only and only Allaah Almighty as the One
and the Only and Worthy of worship. We do not consider anyone else equal to Allaah
Almighty, His partner or His equal in His Dominion or His powers. We do not believe that
anyone (whoever he may be) besides Almighty Allaah, Himself, is the Absolute, who has
Absolute powers. Our firm and announced belief is that everything in the universe and every
action is surely dependent upon Almighty Allaah at every moment while Allaah Almighty is
not, nor can He ever be, dependent on any of His creations at any moment, nor in anything or
in any act can this ever happen. In simple language I can say that we, Ahle-Sunnat-WaJamaaat (i.e. Sunnee Barelvi), do not believe that Almighty Allaah's Prophets, Friends of
Allaah are equal to Allaah, in His being or in His attributes and do not consider the Prophets
and Friends of Allaah like Almighty Allaah or comparable to Allaah at all and we do not certainly and definitely consider anyone else beside Almighty Allaah as Worthy of Worship.

The Meaning of Shirk According to the Shariah


In Lisaanul Arab (New edition, printed Dar-ul-Ahyaa Turaas-ul Arabi, Beirut, vol 7, p. 100) (The Arabic dictionary) written by Allamah Ibne Manzoor, it states: "When it is said that someone has committed
shirk [polytheism] with Almighty Allaah, it means that he has joined somebody else [beside
Allaah] in the Dominion and Tasssaruf [Powers of Sway] of Almighty Allaah. And shirk
[polytheism] means to join anybody else with Him in His being Rabb, whereas Almighty Allaah is
independent of all forms of joiners.(*)
Respected readers! You have seen according to the Shareeat, what the word polytheism
(shirk) means and before the meaning of polytheism you have also seen what our belief is concerning Almighty Allaah. Now you must tell us, does your inspiration not urge you to say that there
is not even a suspicion of polytheism in the belief of us Sunni Barelvis ?
It is a pity that without knowing the real Sharee meaning and explanation of the word
polytheism (shirk) these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi transgressors have defined polytheism as
so: joining together two beings in one attribute is infidelity and polytheism. If this definition is
fully accepted then the Muftis of Deoband will also be seen immersed in infidelity and
polytheism. Therefore in view of the above stated definition of these Deobandi Wahaabis, pay attention to this:
Allaah exists and humans also exists. Meaning that in the matter of Being, both share the
same trait: Almighty Allaah hears, so do humans; Almighty Allaah sees, so do humans; Almighty
Allaah is the Knower and humans are also knowledgeable; Allaah is Sovereign and a human also
does things with his own intention and power; Almighty Allaah is Paak [Pure] and humans call
himself, his clothes, his food, his utensils and his place as pure and there are many similar
examples.

(*) Will the author of the booklet "Johannesburg to Bareilly" please consider the sentences that
occur in the book "Fazaa'il-e-Durood Shareef by his Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariya Kandhalvi and try
to answer us? In these two sentences the Imaam of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis have stated Allaah to be adjoined with the Mu'mineen.
1. "What greater excellence can there be that the Mumineen join Allaah and His angels in this
act." (p. 6)
2. "In this act of honoring the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), beside the creation,
Almighty Allaah Himself participates." (p. 7)

113

If shirk, in the view of these "Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis merely means the sharing
of ones attribute or one matter by two beings then these Muftis of polytheism (shirk) should
kill themselves and get rid of their beings by a sword of nonexistence; pour boiling coal-tar in
their ears so that they may get rid of the polytheism of hearing; put burning iron rods in their
eyes so that they may come out from sharing Allaahs attribute of sight; hit their heads with
hammers so that all the matter relating to consciousness would be destroyed and they would
become altogether ignorant; get rid of every purity in them by adorning and decorating
themselves with all sorts of filth, evil and impurity But what a pity these Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghis, who all the time are ready and willing to fire salvos of infidelity and
polytheism on true Muslims by their pen and tongue, will not "under any circumstances" be
ready to do so. When they themselves come under the mischief of their own verdicts (fatwaa)
then they begin to take cover behind words like "because", "thus", "if", "supposing", and
"meaning etc.and start turning and twisting their words.
Respected readers! It is the most firm belief of us, the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaaat, that
the 'Real being' is actually the excellence of Almighty Allaah. All-Hearing, All-Seeing, AllKnowledge and All-Authority are the personal and real attributes of Almighty Allaah.
Almighty Allaah is the True Creator and Owner of all things and He has also granted some of
His own attributes to some of His creations. Why should it be denied that Almighty Allaah
can grant some of His attributes to some of His best creations, the Prophets and the Friends of
Allaah which is more than His common creations? Almighty Allaah has made His creations
the manifestation of some of His attributes. And He has also bestowed to some preferred
creations of His court and His beloved, in comparison to the ordinary people, somewhat
more from the excellences of these attributes. Only a person who is blessed with these
attributes can make a true estimate of the bounties of His attributes. Otherwise ordinary
people may estimate them to be the same as what they, themselves, have. Whatever I have,
the pious person would have the same. Even though it is not like this. Rather, it is proven
with reference to the Qur'aan and the Sunnah that tremendous blessings are showered by
Allaah upon those who He chooses; unlimited special blessings are proven by the Quraan
and the Sunnah. Moreover, there is no limit to the greatness and loftiness of the Holy Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) who is a special manifestation of the being and attributes
Almighty Allaah and is the Pride of creations, the Reality of the universe and the Elevated
Beloved of Allaah. What could be the limitation of the elevation and magnitude of his
dignity!
It is a miracle of Allaah that even the writings of the stalwart scholars of Deoband itself
bears witness to this fact. In the books of Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariya Saahib, Tableeghi
Nisaab (which has been re-named as Fazaa'il-e-A'maal and which seem to be regarded by

114

Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis of South Africa as apparently more important than even the
Holy Qur'aan) and in the book Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, on page 56, this command of Allaah
(Hadees-e-Qudsi) is present: Almighty Allaah says, "My bondsman keeps attaining My
nearness by offering voluntary nawaafil [prayers] to the extent that I make him My beloved.
And then I become his hearing, by which he hears; and I become his sight, by which he sees;
and I become his hands, by which he holds; and I become his feet, by which he walks; and I
become his tongue by which he speaks; and if he asks for anything from Me, I surely grant
him."
(Bukhaari Shareef, hadees # 6502).

In explaining this Hadees-e-Qudsi, Imaam Fakhr-ud-Deen Raazi (Allaah have mercy on him)
says: The eminence of a bondsman who becomes Allaah's beloved, his excellence is such
that he sees and hears everything near or far and does tasarruf [has power of sway] over
things because, according to Allaah's command, Allaah's exclusive powers are included in
the attributes of this bondsman. Meaning that this bondsman becomes a special
manifestation of the attributes of Allaah. Therefore by keeping faith in this command of
Allaah, we, the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat, believe that the Prophets of Allaah and the Friends
of Allaah are undoubtedly the people who are blessed by Allaah with spiritual powers and
other special authorities and they help Allaah's creations with the powers and authority
given to them by Allaah.
Deobandi scholar, Muhammad Aashiq Ilaahi Meruthi, biographer of the Imaam of the
Deobandi Wahaabis, Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi, has written a whole chapter to this topic,
"Tazkiyyah and Tasarrufaat (Purification and Powers to Change). He says, "He [Gangohi] has
departed from this world, but his tasarrufaat [Powers to help people] are continuously
working in the world."
(Tazkiraat-e-Rasheed, p. 151, vol 2)(*)
______________________________
(*) There is a whole chapter with the title of Tasarrufaat in the book Aap Beetee written by
Janaab Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariyah and on page 780 to 786 in the book Bawaadir-un-Nawaadir
of Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib under the title of Risaalah e At Taarruf Fi Tahqeeqit Tasarruf.
By paying attention to the internal [spiritual side] to endure any effect on the other person,
this in terms of Sufis is called Tasarruf" and Tawaju etc. (Bawaadir-un-Nawaadir page 780). And
in Tazkiratul Rasheed (page 137, vol 2) it is stated: The way the powers of the body affect the
sensitive bodies and a powerful person is able to change visible things with the will of Allaah.
Similarly the power of qalb [heart] which is called Power of Qudsiyah [Divine Power] affects the
heart and with the Permission of Allaah is empowered to enlighten the dark and rusted hearts.
Without dispelling this darkness, internal spirituality cannot be attained. The functioning of this
power of Qudsiyah is called Tasarruf And the Tasarrufaat depends on the spiritual powers and the
power of the heart of the Shaiekh [bestowing guide].

115

The renowned scholar of Daar-ul-uloom at Deoband, Mahmood-ul-Hasan Saahib says


the following in praise of his Gangohi Saahib:

Hawaaij Deen o Dunyaa Kay Kahaa Lay Jaae Hum Yaa Rabb,
Gayaa Woh Qiblah-e-Haajaat-e-Jismaani o Roohaani
"O Rabb, where should I go for my religious and other worldly needs?
The provider of my spiritual and physical needs has gone
(Kulliyaat-e-Shaiekh-ul-Hind, p. 8)

On page 252, vol 2 of this same book Tazkiratur Rasheed, the saying of Gangohi Saahib himself is present: "The powers to benefit and to perform miracles of the Friends of Allaah exist in a true form even after their death, the sainthood is elevated after their death. This
is also confirmed by the Hadees of the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] mentioned by Allamah Ibne Abdul Barr.
On page 9 of another book of his, Imdaadus Sulook, Gangohi Saahib says:
"The disciple must also believe that the [rooh] of the Shaiekh is not confined or limited
to any particular place. So, the disciple wherever he may be, near or far, though he may be
away from the Shaiekhs mortal body but he is never away from the Shaiekhs spirituality.
When he attains total belief of this fact then he will remember his Shaiekh at all times so that
a spiritual affinity will develop within the heart and it will be always beneficial. Therefore
the disciple should have this belief that the spirit of the Shaiekh is not bound or limited to
any certain place. Rather, where ever a disciple may be, near or far; he may be away from the
body of the Shaiekh; but he is not away from the spirituality of the Shaiekh. When he will
become familiar with this act with a strong belief, he will always remember his Shaiekh then
a connection of heart will develop and he will gain benefit at all times. And if in any
situation the help of his Shaiekh is needed then [due to the connection of the hearts], by
accepting the Shaiekh to be present in the heart, he [the disciple] will ask for his need with a
pure tongue.
On page 72 of the magazine, "Ashraf-ul-Uloom" in the issue of Sha'baan 1355 AH,
Thanvi Saahib writes: "People of the graves benefit. Sometimes from the plea of the

116

benefactor, sometimes with the intentions of the person and sometimes without the intention
of the person, like how the sun benefits without an intention as well.
On page 42 of the same magazine for both the months of Jamaadeen (Uoolaa and Ukhraa)
1354 AH, Thanvi Saahib says: "Maulana Gangohi was seen by a truthful person in his
dreams, he [Gangohi] said, After my death, Almighty Allaah has granted me Khilaafat
[Caliphate]. By this, it probably meant that he had been given permission to use his tasarruf
[powers of sway]. Because this giving of Khilaafat [to make an heir or successor], this is tasarruf. To sway over things for the benefit of others, this is not commonly bestowed. Some holy
men are granted this after their death.

A person asked, What kind of tasarruf [powers of sway] is that? Thanvi said, It was
like somebody received the inner spiritual feelings or gets this elevation in himself. He further said, For example, there is a further increase in the zeal and zest after visiting the grave
of a pious man. This elevation is produced because of the powers and attention of that pious
person which is evident. Someone from the audience said, This benefit can also be gained by
sitting at home. He [Thanvi] said, The dead person has a special connection with that grave
so there it is a greater chance of acquiring benefit.
On page 166 of his book "Ta'leem-ul-Deen"(printed by Daar-ul-Ishaaat, Karachi), Thanvi Saahib
has given this instruction for everyone: he says, "One should keep on seeking benefit [be a
seeker of benefit] from the shrine of the Friends of Allaah.
On page 223 of book Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, Thanvi Saahib says this, "It is the habit
of Allaah that He does not bestow blessings and bounties without mediation.
On pg 80 of his last book Bawaadir-un-Nawaadir, Thanvi Saahib further says: "It
should be understood that some Friends of Allaah use their powers to benefit others and
perform miracles even after death and this means that this act has been reached repeatedly in
succession [one after the other in series].
The present scholars of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis even deny the powers of
sway (tasarruf) of creation but their elders say: The Friends of Allaah are not only capable of
having the power to benefit others but these Tasarufaat [powers] of theirs also continue even
after their death and these powers keep on increasing. Now the readers should realize for
themselves that the present groups of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis are being proven wrong
by their own elders whom they consider as their Imaams and leaders. Those elders of theirs
are proving the present group of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis to be wrong. If the elders of
the nation of Deoband are considered correct then these youngsters (the present group) are
proven to be wrong and if these youngsters are consider correct then their elders would be

117

proven to be wrong. They should decide this for themselves: who is wrong and who is right?
Or this they should accept that none of them are correct.
Dear readers! The current Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis are severely opposing
the Prophets (Salutation on them) and the Friends of Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them). They are
unfair to such an extent that they consider even the belief of loving and devotion to the
Prophets (Salutation on them) and Friends of Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them) as polytheism. To
respect the Prophets (Salutation on them) and the Friends of Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them) is
considered polytheism by them. Perhaps, they do not believe in the Qur'aan or they do not
read the Qur'aan. This question is for them: if merely respecting, showing devotion and
honor is polytheism or worshipping then why is this command in the holy Quraan,
Watu'az-Ziroohu Watu Waq-Qiroohu (Chapter 48, verse 9) ("Show respect to him and venerate
him.")?
The holy Qur'aan commands us to pay maximum respect to the Holy Prophet (Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). For instance, it says: "La Taqooloo Raa'ina Waqoolun Zurna" (O you
who believe! Say not to the Allaahs (beloved) Prophet, Raiina (Make concession to us) but
say Unzurna (Glance graciously upon us) right from the beginning listen attentively (to his
discourse)) (Chapter 2, verse 103) It also says: "La Tar fa'oo Aswaatakum Fauqa Sautin
Nabiy" (Do not ever raise your voices over the voice of the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam]) (Chapter 49, verse 2) ... At another place it is said: "La Taj'aloo Duaa'ar Rasooli Bainakum
Kaduaa'i Ba'dikum Ba'da" (Never call the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), as you would
call one another but call him with deep respect and honor") (Chapter 24, verse 63) We have also
been told, "Wa Maie Yu'az-zim Sha'aa'iral Laahi Fa'innaha Min Taqwal Quloob." (And
those who respect the Prophet and Friends of Allaah their hearts are filled with the fear of
Allaah.) (Chapter 22, verse 32). Those who call respect as polytheism, why do they forget these
and several others verses of Quraan regarding respect?
All these verses clearly explain the importance of and orders regarding respect. The
Holy Qur'aan clearly says: "Wa Lil Laahil iz-zatu Wali Rasoolihi Wa Lil Mu'mineen" (And
honor is for Allaah and His Messenger and Mu' mineen [true believers]) (Chapter 63, verse 8).
And along with this, it has been said: "Walaa kinnal Munaafiqeena Laa Ya'lamoon." (But
the hypocrites are not aware of this). (Chapter 63, verse 8). Therefore it is proven that those who
deny the honor and respect of the Prophets and the Friends of Allaah are, according to
Qur'aanic judgement, hypocrites and ignorant. In fact, these people are proven to be the
deniers of the Qur'aan itself. Because the Qur'aan is proving honor and respect for the Prophets and the Friends of Allaah and saying that the respect of Sha'a'iril-Laah (Signs of Allaah) is
piety of the hearts. And these Deobandi Wahaabi oppressors are calling this honoring poly-

118

theism.(*) If to call the respect of the Prophets (Salutation on them) and Friends of Allaah as
polytheism and if to respect and honor such disrespect and apostates is not the denial of the
Qur'aan and not mockery of religion then what is this?
Dear readers, the Friends of Allaah are the beloved of Allaah and His elevated bondsmen. It is their favor on the Islaamic Ummah that they have guided Allaah's creations, have
filled and flourished hearts with the love of Allaah and the love of the Prophet of Allaah
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). They fully adhered to the Shareeat and Sunnah when they were
physically alive and cautioned the creations of Allaah to adhere to the Shareeat and the Sunnah. Furthermore they kept fulfilling the duty of correcting their beliefs and practices. When
the Friends of Allaah (Auliyaa Allaah) depart from this mortal world then people go to their
shrines because, according to the Quraan and Sunnah, the shrines of the Friends of Allaah
are also blessed places where supplications are accepted. People go to shrines with love and
devotion but in any case they do not prostrate before them nor do they encircle or circulate
around the graves (do Tawaaf). They do not, do not, at all believe that the man in the grave is
a partner of Allaah. Instead, what they do is: they stand near the grave of this beloved and
elevated bondsmen of Allaah, pray to Allaah through the mediation of the man in the grave
and request the person in the grave to mediate in the court of Allaah on their behalf. People
kiss the graves with love and respect or after touching the graves or its covering with their
hands, they gently rub their faces with the same hands. Doing like this can never, ever, be
called grave worshipping or polytheism. It is from several Ahaadees in Al-Mutaarik, Imaam-eHaakim, Musnad e Ahmad, Tareeq Madinahtul Damishq, Ibne Asakar and As-Shifaa Fee Huqooqil-eMustafaa of Imaam Qaazi Iyaaz by which it is proven that the Companion of the Prophet used
to do the same.) (**)
Respected readers, perhaps, concerning the kissing of the graves, this question might
arise in the mind of a person: why are the graves kissed? When they are made of sand and
stones, it is therefore, quite obvious that the graves by themselves have no status. In reply to
this I would say, Due to their association with the Friends of Allaah, it is with love that their
graves and their stations are kissed. It might seem very strange to kiss the sand or the stone.
Now also read this, every person kisses Hajr-e-Aswad even though it is also only a stone.
_____________________________
(*) Readers should know that those who believe in Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghism act
contrary to what they believe You have already seen how they indulge in exaggerated respect for
their elders. Thanvi Saahib says, There is benefit for the people in respecting the scholars,
respecting the scholars is actually the respect of the religion. (Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, p. 180). If
respecting is polytheism then what is the verdict of Thanvi Saahib regarding this statement? I will
be waiting for a reply.

Kay Fuyoozaat and Qabr Aur Aadaab (Author)

But you will say it is kissed because it is the stone of paradise. Therefore due to its
association with the Paradise it has become special and significant. At this point, I will say
this hadees of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam):
Qabrul Mu'min Raudatum Min Riyaadil Jannah. (The grave of a Mumin is a
garden amongst the gardens of paradise.) (Tirmizee #2460) Therefore, the grave of a true
Muslim is also associated with the paradise. Then how can it be possible to deny its
distinction and importance? Furthermore consider this, we kiss the Holy Qur'aan. This is
also because of love as the words of the Quraan are the Words of Allaah. Even though the
Words of Allaah are only those words which are printed on the paper with ink, but we kiss
the paper, the ink, that cardboard on which these papers are binded (the cover that is made)
or that cloth in which the Qur'aan is wrapped. We kiss them because all of these things have
an association with the Words of Allaah. The most vital thing is the special association with
Almighty Allaah. Similarly, whatever honor and rank the Friends of Allaah have attained, it
is only because of their special connection with Almighty Allaah. Therefore, all those things
which are associated with the beloved of Almighty Allaah, they are also worthy of love and
respect.
The mountains of Safaa and Marwah became the Signs of Allaah (Sha'aa'iril Laah), just
because they were touched by the feet of a beloved bondswoman of Allaah Hazrat Haajirah
(Salutation on her). So it is learnt from the Qur'aan that the places which are touched by the feet
of Friends of Allaah becomes the Sign of Allaah (Shaaairil Laah). Therefore, the places where
the Friends of Allaah are resting with their whole existence, how can we deny the greatness
and grandeur of these places?
I consider it necessary to state that the shrines and the relics of the Friends of Allaah
are kissed only with love and to merely kiss them is absolutely not worshipping, it is love,
and it is not devoid of blessing and rewards. The details of the daily routine of the Imaam of
the Deobandi Wahaabis, Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi, is mentioned in the book Tazkiratur
Rasheed, which includes details of kissing the relics of Madinah Munawwarah by their spiritual guides and respecting them to a great extent.(*)
___________________________
(*) Maulvee Muhammad Ismaaeel Saahib says, Once he [Gangohi Saahib] bestowed the
sand of Madinah of the Prophet and said, Eat this. I said, Sir it is prohibited to eat sand. He
[Gangohi] said, Fellow, that sand might be different Once Hazrat Maulana [Gangohi] gave me a
small piece of a candlestick and said, Swallow it. He also gave me a thread of the silk covering of
Kabah and said, Eat this. (p. 48, 49, Tazkiratul Rasheed, vol 2)
He [Gangohi] also had a jubbah [robe] bestowed to him by Alaa Hazrat Haaji [Imdaad ul
Laah]. This he had placed in the box of sacred relics. Whenever he would take it out, firstly, he
used to hold it in his holy hands and place it on his eyes and then one by one he would give a
chance to others to place it on their heads. At that moment a special condition was visible on
him. (p. 167, Tazkiratul Rasheed, vol 2). Once he said, People throw (Continued on next page)

And the stalwart scholars of Deobandi Wahaabism have proven with evidence in their
books, the greatness of places, pious peoples blessings and excellences through the Saints.
Therefore, Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib says, "The relics of the People of Allaah have effects and
their association has greater effects. He further says: "The visitation to the pious people and
their association is a great thing. Even their imagination is also beneficial. And this is the
reality of the relics. Because, by seeing them, their remembrance is refreshed and, by their
remembrance, noor [light] comes in our hearts and a connection is developed with Almighty
Allaah.
(Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, p. 68, printed by Maqtubaee Thanvi, Karachi)

Thanvi Saahib says, "Because of them [the Friends of Allaah], the hearts of people are
illuminated and blessed. The condition of being benefited [of being a desirer of benefit] is the
belief in these pious people [People of Allaah].
(Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, p. 130)

On page 85 of his book Bawaadir-un-Nawaadir, Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib says, "Like
how the company of fire heats up water, this company benefits the living as well as the dead
and when the souls of two have affinity with each other, this is the condition for benefiting.
So if the person in the grave is an associated person and the visitor also has an affinity then
the affinities of the two have a relevance with each other and as a result the condition of the
visitor gets strengthened. This is interpreted as progress and power and, due to this affiniy,
unity in association is perceived.
Remember to worship something is one act and to respect and honor something is
another matter. There is a great difference between the two. Also remember this polytheism
is concerned with belief and we, the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaaat, do not ever consider the
person in the grave, whether he is a Prophet or a Friend of Allaah, eternal by himself or that
_______________________________
(Continued from page 120) away things of Haraamain Shareefan, the tins of Zam Zam and the pits
from the dates. Just like that, they do not pay any attention that the air of Makkah Muazammah
and Madinah Munawwarah has touched them (p. 47) Gangohi placed a sabeel [stall for giving
drinks] in Gangoh of Ghusaalah Shareef [the sacred water used to bathe the shrine of the Prophet]
and he [Gangohi] said, What would anyone know what this water [to bathe] is? (p.49) Hazrat
Maulana also had a piece of green cloth of the sacred hujrah [room] of the Prophet amongst his
relics. Sometimes, on Friday when he used to display these relics to the people and the associates
present there he would open the trunk with his own holy hands, first, he would place the covering
[piece of green cloth] on his own eyes and kiss it with his lips and, later, he would place it on the
eyes of others and put it on their heads. (p. 52, Ash Shahaabus Saaqib by Husaien Ahmad Madni)
He put the sand of the room of the Prophet (Asalaatu was salaam) in his bottle of surmah [coal]
and every night, after Ishaa prayers before resting, following the Sunnah and he kept using this
coal till the end of his life. His common servants were familiar with this story. (Ash-Shahaabus
Saaqib, p. 52)
121

he is the real authority to give benefit. But rather, even while going to the shrines of the
Friends of Allaah, we still supplicate to Allaah hoping that He, with His forgiveness, mercy
and grace may erase the black spots in our scroll of deeds, for the sake of the goodness of His
elevated bondsmen, their prayers and their services to the religion and Millat (Nation).
If the Deobandi Wahaabi Mullaa-worshipping people still insist calling this action of
ours as "grave-worshipping" then this question has to be asked to them: what should be the
opinion concerning those who go to Baiet-ul-Laah (Makkah Muazammah) or who are far from
Makkah and prostrate in the direction of Kabah? These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi people
remember the word Ghaier-ul-Laah (Non-Allaah) very well and they say and write this
word with great hatred, disrespect and insolence for the Prophets and the Friends of Allaah.
(Even though they may not be fully aware of the meaning of this word ghaier.) This
question is for these oppressors: the stones from which the building with four walls which
they call Baiet-ul-Laah (House of Allaah) is made, those stones are also Non-Allaah, then
why do these Deobandi Wahaabis turn their direction towards these stones while
worshiping? Certainly, the obvious answer would be that it has been commanded by Allaah,
To prostrate while facing the stones used in the building of Kabatul-Laah. So this would
like to be said to them that they should accept that if Almighty Allaah gives command to
prostrate before "non-Allaah" then even that command has to be obeyed. Since the stones of
Kabah (according to them) will also be included in the category of Non-Allaah like the
humans. Hence these people will say, "At the time of our visitation to the Kabah and turning
our face towards the Baietul Laah while apparently worshipping we are clinging to the
walls or the cover of the Kabah and crying, supplicating, asking for the granting of our
wishes. But never does this thought come to our minds that we are considering these stones
by which the walls are made to be Worthy of being worshipped nor do we ask them for the
fulfillment of our wishes." So, O you Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi verdict issuers (fatwaa
baazo), why do you have a wrong conception about those people who visit the shrines of the
Friends of Allaah and sacred places? They absolutely do not consider the Friends of Allaah
as worthy of worship. But instead, by considering these Friends of Allaah as the beloved of
Allaah and pious people, they go to their abodes and here they supplicate to only to Allaah.
For just doing this much why do you call them polytheists?
It is a question to the scholars of Deoband, They know that the inner part of the
Ka'aba-tul-Laah (Hateem) has the graves of Hazrat Ismaaeel (Salutation on him) and his mother
Hazrat Haajirah (Salutation on her). Beside this there is also the grave of Hazrat Adam Bannori.
(*)
___________________________
(*) Janaab Ashraf Ali Thanvi has said, Saiyyid Adam Bannori is the Caliph of Hazrat Mujaddid
Saahib (Allaah have mercy on him). He died under Meezaab-e-Rahmat. [His] dead body would not rise
from there. In the end a person said, Bury him here then, he will get up. Therefore he was buried
there. (Al-kalaamul Hassan Mukammal, Malfoozaat-e-Thanvi, p. 221, vol 2, printed by Al Maktab-e-Al
Ashrafiyah, Jaamiah Ashrafiyah, Lahore)

(This special place was called Hajr-e-Ismaaeel (the place of the stone of Ismaaeel
(Salutation on him)) and a green stone was placed as a sign for this area. In the last few years,
when the new floor was being made, this mark had been removed.) So can this be said about
those who do Tawaaf (circumambulate) of the Kabah, those who prostrate in the direction of
the Kabah and those who cling to the Kabah while supplicating that they do not ask Allaah to
grant their wishes, they are, in fact, not doing Tawaaf of the Kabah, they do not prostate
(sajdah) in the direction of the Kabah, they do not ask Allaah for their desires? And instead are
these practices directed to the people of the graves? If in reply to this, the scholars of
Deoband say: Practice is directed to beliefs. As long as the beliefs regarding the people
buried in the Kabah is not such as to be considered as polytheism, until till then the concept
cannot be derived that the Tawaaf (circumambulation) or sajdah (prostration) taking place is
for the graves and not of the Kabah.
So I would like to say that those who go to the shrines of the Friends of Allaah do not
hold any such beliefs regarding the people of the grave which could be considered as
polytheism, rather, after going to the shrines of the Friends of Allaah these visitors supplicate
to Allaah alone and never do tawaaf (circumambulate) around the grave or prostrate in the
direction of the graves. Even after knowing this fact, what great cruelty and injustice it is to
call true Sunnee Muslims polytheists. Those who say like so are undoubtedly wicked. May
Allaah protect us from their evil! (If it is possible for them to do so, the author of the booklet
"Johannesburg to Bareilly" and the people of his kind should read the chapter "28th
Ghareebah" of Bawaadir un Nawaadir, the last book of their own Thanvi Saahib. It will make
them aware of the greatness and excellence of the Friends of Allaah).
O Deobandi Wahaabis, if you can be called Muslim even after prostrating in the
direction of that which is non-Allaah (i.e. stones of the Kabah) because for you the real
Masjood (One who is being Worshipped) is not those stones but the True Deity, Almighty
Allaah, then those true Muslims who visit the shrines of the Friends of Allaah and say, "We
supplicate only to Almighty Allaah but we come near the Beloveds of Allaah and ask from
Him who is our true Deity and Desire, only Allaah. Then why do you people fire salvos of
verdicts of polytheism on these true Muslims?
O you devoid of wisdom! Perhaps you do not know but the fact is that the wealth of
religion and Ieemaan, to bow before Allaah Wahdahu Laa Shareek (The One who has no
Partner), the etiquettes of His worshipping and the way of asking from Him has only been
received by these Friends of Allaah whom you see with great disrespect and are not
intimidated to call Non-Allaah whereas we, the Sunnees, never tire of affectionately and
devotedly calling them "People of Allaah (Ahl-ul-Laah). Due to the favors of these "People of
Allaah", we have received the straight path. These are the monasteries by which the believers
of Allaah have received admonition and guidance. For this, we occasionally come for the

123

visitation of these monasteries to pay respect to the people of Allaah, go to these abodes
(aastaanah) and receive the confirmation and verification of our devotion and association from
them. Undoubtedly, it is the truth: these People of Allaah" are the doors to the Mercy of
Allaah and if such abodes were not present then we would have not been able to find Him,
who is without any fixed place, who is Limitless.
Respected readers, for the strengthening of your belief, I may also present to you
a saying of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). The beloved of Allaah, the Holy
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) says, "I do not have any fear of my Ummah committing
polytheism, but certainly for this I have caution that my Ummah will start having more love
for the world.
This sacred hadees is present in Kitaabul Maghaazi of Bukhaari Shareef (#4042).
Undoubtedly we belong to the Ummah of Allaah's beloved Prophet and when our Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has no fear from us that we will indulge in polytheism then we can
never become polytheists from only the verdicts (fatwaa) of these verdict issuing Muftis of
polytheism. Remember this: if we are not polytheists in the eyes of Allaah and our beliefs of
Tawheed (Oneness of Allaah) is correct in accordance to the Qur'aan and Sunnah then, by the
Grace and blessing of Almighty Allaah, we are the true Muslims. We pray to Almighty
Allaah to keep us firm on the Truth (true path) and protect us from the evils of Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghism.
After polytheism, I will now briefly write about innovation (bid at) according to the
Qur'aan and the Sunnah. (In Shaa Allaah, it is the intention of this servant to write a complete
booklet on the subject of "Bid at Kee Haqeeqat" in which I will prove the reality of my true
standpoint on the basis of the writings of the scholars of Deoband themselves).
Respected readers , Every true Muslim knows this well that the foundation of
the belief of our Faith is the Qur'aan and the Sunnah. If any saying or action of any leader,
revivalist or expounder (Imaam, Mujaddid or Mufti) which is not according to the Qur'aan or
the Sunnah exactly then it is absolutely unacceptable and cannot be considered as a Shar'ee
testimony. No person in this entire universe has any authority to change the commands of
the Qur'aan and the Sunnah just by his own opinion. Those who gave priority to their own
opinion in the matter of the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and considered their own opinion more
important, they themselves have gotten misled and have misled others also. The principle of
the Shareeat and the Sunnah is, He who summarizes the Qur'aan according to his own
opinion builds for himself a place in Hell. It is possible that the verdict of an Expounder
(Mufti) could be wrong for not being according to the Qur'aan and the Sunnah but this is

124

absolutely not possible, neither is it imaginable that the commandments of the Qur'aan and
the Sunnah would be wrong. If it is not comprehended by a persons understanding and
wisdom then it is the defect of his own wisdom and intelligence for which he should get
his intellect treated.
Dear readers, it is a rule: "Everything is recognized by its opposite. (Tu'raful
Ashyaa'u Bi Azdaadihaa). Sunnat and bid at are two opposing things. In the Arabic
dictionary and in the terminology of Shareeat, Sunnah means "way and Prophetic traditions.
According to the sayings of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam): it is the way
which is the way of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) himself as well as the way
of his rightly guided Caliphs and the perfectly devoted people who followed them.
According to the dictionary, innovation (bid at) is everything that has been created recently
(everything which is of recent origin). Also, in the terminology of Shareeat, bid at is that act
which is not proven by Shareeat and Sunnah. Meaning that the real explanation of innovation
is any new addition in religion (or deletion in religion) verbally, by actions, clearly or only by
gesture which has not been proven by the Shareeat and the Sunnah,. And any worship,
habits, actions or beliefs which can be proven, or which has an evidence or example in the
Shareeat and Sunnah cannot be called innovation at all according to the Shareeat.
It is proven by the authentic sayings of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
that the Prophet's companions adopted many acts, ways of reciting names and praises of
Allaah and many supplications which were not practiced by the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) nor did he order them, yet the companions believed that these acts were
included in "good acts" which is the purpose of the religion of Islaam. As Almighty Allaah
commands in the Qur'aan, Waf'alul Khaira La'allakum Tuflihoon (You do good acts in the
hope you may attain to success). (Chapter #22, verse #77)
And the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has said: "He who invents a good way
in Islaam, for him there is reward and good (for taking out this way) and he will also receive
cumulative reward for all the rewards of those who do that good deed which is invented by
him whereas those coming afterwards and acting on this way, their rewards will not be
reduced."
(Muslim Shareef: # 15-1017)

(This same hadees can be seen in a letter of Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi on page 115 of
Tazkiratur Rasheed vol 1 and on page 113 of Kamaalaate-Ashrafiyah and on page 353 of Bawaadir
-un-Nawaadir.) This saying of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) does not at all mean
that anyone can adopt any new way as he desires but for every new way there are set rules
and regulations in Islaam. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary and important that whatever

125

new way is made, it would be according to the Islaamic rules and regulations and would be
in the circle of arguments and testimonies, meaning it is important that every new way is
according to the Shareeat and the Sunnah. That way which is considered good by the
Shareeat and the Sunnah, that is good and the one which is not considered good by the
Shareeat and the Sunnah is absolutely not good. But this matter will only be decided in the
real spirit of the Shareeat and the Sunnah and not simply on someones personal opinion.
It is the incident of Hazrat Saiyyidunaa Bilaal-e-Habshi (Allaah be pleased with him) that the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) said to him, "I heard the sound of your footsteps in
heaven. What special acts do you perform? He (Hazrat Bilaal-e-Habshi) said, "Everytime I
do ablution, I perform two rak'aat of Salaat.(Bukhaari: #3679, Muslim: #106-2457, Ahmad: #22996,
Tirmizee: #3689, Haakim: #5245) The Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) had not ordered him to do
this act. By exposing the nobility and goodness of this blessed act of Hazrat Bilaal in front of
the other Companions, the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) had asked so that everyone
would know the good act is after all a good act and there is rewards for it. Hence, the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) approved this new way practiced by Hazrat Bilaal (Allaah be
pleased with him). It is stated in Saheeh Bukhaari Shareef: #3989 that Hazrat Khubaieb (Allaah be pleased
with him) was the first martyr who established the tradition of saying two rak'aat of Salaat
before being martyred while imprisoned. Once when the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
was getting up after bowing down (Ruku) during his prayer he said, "Sami Allaahu Liman
Hamidah." A companion who was following him during the prayers said, "Rab-bana Wa
Lakal Hamd" and, with this, that companion also uttered the words, "Hamdan Kaseeran
Taiyyiban Mubaarakan Feeh." When the prayers came to an end, the Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) inquired, Who was the person who had uttered these words? He (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) also said, "I saw more then thirty angels dashing forward, each one of them
was trying to write these words down." Meaning, a person who say these words, he becomes
a source of immeasurable reward and goodness.
(Bukhaari: #799 and Muslim: # 149-600)

There are several incidents like this which prove that whatever good act is done
while remaining within the framework of Shareeat and Sunnah this act is a good act and this
is good and good cannot, under any circumstances, be called innovation (bid at). It is proven
that while remaining within the circles of Shareeat and Sunnah there is a great deal of
possibility in matters. Every such act which is testified to be approved by the Shareeat and
the Sunnah, which is not against any text (words of the Quraan and Ahaadees) nor creates
any corruption or violence then it is not innovation (bid at) at all. Islaamic religion presents
solutions to all problems of every period and area. With the change of time and people, new
events keep taking place as well and will continue to take place. If Islaamic solutions to such

126

kinds of issues are called innovation (bid at) and deviation then how will religion continue to
be the complete code of life?
Shame on such people who never get tired of declaring good acts which are
perfectly in accordance to the Shareeat and Sunnah as innovations (bid aat). They are
unaware of such innovators whose end is nothing apart from the destruction of Faith
(Ieemaan) and the destruction of the people of Faith. The western way of governance which is
called democracy is without any doubt the worst kind of innovation (bid at) and yet those
who call the celebration of Meelaad of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) as
innovation are most expressive in praise of this form of government. This is a wicked
conspiracy by the enemies of Islaam. This bad innovation has led Muslims away from
obeying the Shareeat and the Sunnah and has instead taught them obedience to this Taghut
[name of an idol] which is given the name of the law of the country or the constitution.
Those who call those people innovators (bidatees) who, with love, send praise and
salutations to the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) in fulfilment of Allaah's
commands, those who have become self-proclaimed monopolists of religion, they do nothing
against this bad innovation concerning governance which has enveloped many Muslim
countries. Instead, in Pakistan, most of the Deobandi Wahaabi scholars, only for the
supremacy of this democracy, are not only supporting rule of a woman, but a Deobandi
scholar also occupies the position of an adviser to this woman, whose rule is undoubtedly
clearly against the Qur'aan and the Sunnah. Not only this but they are doing their best to
justify the ruling of a woman and are condemning those who call the ruling of a woman as
unlawful.
This hadees has been written on page 10 of part one of the book "Johannesburg to
Bareilly, Every innovation is a deviation and every innovator will go to Hell. By coping
this hadees the author of the booklets has tried for us to establish that we, the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa
-Jamaaat, are innovators [according to him]. This is a severe allegation. The punishment of
this accusation will be on these Deobandi Wahaabi oppressors.
In explanation of this hadees, Hazrat Imaam Navavi (Allaah have mercy on him) says, By bid
at [innovation] in this hadees it means that those acts are bid aat [innovations] whose
correctness of doing such [acts] have no justification in the Shareeat and the Sunnah and those
acts are not bid aat [innovations] which are proven correct in anyway according to the
Shareeat and the Sunnah.
On page 22 and 23, volume 2 of his book Kitaab Tahzeeb-ul-Asmaa-i-wal-Lughaat,
Imaam Navavi (Allaah have mercy on him) has quoted from the book Kitaab-ul-Qawaa'id by the
famous Imaam, Abu Muhammad Abdul Azeez Izzud deen bin Abdus Salaam (Allaah have mercy

127

on him) that there

are five kinds of bid aat [innovations]: Waajibah [mandatory], Muharramah


[forbidden], Mandoobah [recommended], Makroohah [disliked] and Mubaahah [lawful]. He
has also written the details of these five kinds. He has also quoted this saying of Imaam
Shaafi'ee (Allaah be pleased with him) who has said: "One kind of innovation is bad and another is
good. A bad bid at [innovation] is that which is against any Law of Shareeat, this kind of
innovation is an bid at [innovation] of deviation. Bid' at e Hasna [a good innovation] is that
which is not against any good act or against any evidence of Shariah which is done during
the first period. Such bid at [innovation] is a good innovation. (*)
In this holy hadees, before the condemning of innovation, the words Sharrul-eUmoori Muhaddisaatuhaa (Muslim: #43-867, Mishkaat: #141) are present. The Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) who with the grace of Allaah has the knowledge of the unseen, in this hadees,
(without any restriction) that before calling innovation as deviation, has clearly explained:
New good deeds will not be certainly called innovations or deviations, by using the words
Sharril-Umoor (bad deeds).
And in this second holy hadees which has been copied by the author of Johannesburg
to Bareilly, Sharril Umoor Muhaddisaatuhaa. (Bukhari: #2697, Muslim: #17-1718 by the words
Fi Amrinaa it has been cleared to the scholars of Deoband as well that to introduce any
new thing in religion will be wrong but new ways etc. for the religion will not be wrong.

Therefore, on page 11 and 12 of his book "Sunnat wa Bid at", the renowned jurist of
Deobandis, Mufti Muhammad Shafee Saahib says:
That worship which is proven verbally or by action clearly or by gesture by the
Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] or the respectable Companions; even that cannot be called
bid at [innovation] The need of an act which was not required in the period of the Prophet
but was produced later to achieve a religious purpose; even that [act] is not included in bid at
[innovation]. He further says: It is forbidden in the hadees to introduce any Ahdaas-fid-deen
[new thing in religion]; to introduce Ahdaas-lid-deen [new things for religion] is not
forbidden.

Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib says: "The reality about bid at [innovation] is that it should
be adopted as religion. How can it be considered bid at [innovation] if it is adopted as a
cure? So there is one bid at [innovation] which is ahdaas-fid-deen [newly introduced in
religion] and the other one is a bid at [innovation] introduced as ahdaas-lid-deen [for the sake
of religion]. Ahdaas-lid-deen meaning-wise is Sunnah.

128

(Al-Ifaazaat-ul-Yaumiyah, vole 1, p. 242, printed Maktabah-Daanish, Deoband)

The same Thanvi Saahib also says, "At times bid at [innovation] is obligatory, for
example the establishment of exchange and the teaching of Arabic grammar etc. and at times
it is also Mustahab [desirable] like, for instance, establishing ribaat [hostel] and madrassah etc.
and all those good acts which were not present in the earlier period.
(Bawaadir-un-Nawaadir, p. 777)

This passage is present on page 139-140 of the book Arwaah-e--Salaasah compiled by


Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib: "Janaab Rasoolal Laah [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] had the perfect
power to benefit. So his teachings alone were sufficient to reform the Sahaabah [Companions]
inwardly and they had no need for reforms introduced by the Suufiyaa [Mystics], without
these reforms perfection was attained. After Janaab Rasoolal Laah [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam],
this power gradually weakened. So much that the Soofiya had to use exercises introduced by
them such as Zikr bil Jahr, Habs-e-Damm, Paas-e-Anfaas etc. and they used the help of these
exercises. These exercises were not present during the time of the Janaab Rasoolal Laah [Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] so they were bid aat [innovations]. But they were not bid aat-fid-Deen
[new innovations in religion], rather they were Bidaat-lid-deen [innovations for the sake of
religion]. Meaning that these deeds were not included in religion but such deeds were used
for acquiring the religion which were permitted by the Shareeat. Hence, these exercises were
for the religion, they were not included in the religion. Try to understand in this way: A
physician prescribes sharbet-i-banafshah [syrup] for a patient who needs it. The patient is in
need of sharbet-e-banafshah but this syrup is not available in the market. Therefore he collects
wood, lights a fire, fetches a pot, gets hold of sugar, brings water, and banafshah etc. and
cooks sugar and banafshah etc. on the fire after putting all these things in a pot. He prepares
sharbet-i-banafshah to follow the prescription. This collecting of wood and lighting of the fire
etc. would not be called an addition to the prescription but following the prescription. In the
same way, all such means are permissible under the Shareeat which can be used for
reforming oneself and the Shareeat has not established any specific method for it. Therefore,
this process which may be achieved by any approved and halaal method, it can be adopted
and this way will not be part of the religion but will be a means to attain the religion."
Here, it should be explained for the benefit of the readers that the rule is: The nonobligation of a thing or no mention of such a thing cannot be taken as a proof of its not being
permissible. Meaning, that if an act is not obligatory and unnecessary then it does not mean
that this act is not permitted and is not correct because the origin of the things may be permissible. If the prohibition of something or the unlawfulness of an act is not proven by the
Qur'aan and the Sunnah then that thing or act cannot be made forbidden or wrong only from
the basis of ones personal opinion. Otherwise, he who does so will be considered as

129

committing Ahdaas-fid-deen [introducing new things in religion] because to declare any good
permitted act as bad or wrong only by relying on personal opinion is not a good deed at all,
instead this is a serious mistake and a bad innovation.
The present Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, who are self-proclaimed rightly guided
scholars, certainly do not fear Almighty Allaah, otherwise the learned people know very well
that to apply an exemplary new affair to another is a tradition of the Imaams. It is the practice
of these scholars of Deoband who babble their tongues in such matters that they issue fatwaa
if somehow they find a text (of Quraan and Prophetic Ahaadees) in their favor in any way
and, in their ignorance, pay no attention to other texts (Words of Quraan and Ahaadees)
rules, explanations and the correct statements of known people and the sayings of the holy
Companions of the Prophet and their true followers. See the condition of these people when
they are asked to define innovation (bid at): They said, "That thing which was not present
during the time of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and is present now are innovations
(bid'at)." They were so caught on this definition but then they realized this definition was
hurting their own image so they were bound to change the words and started saying, "That
act which was not done during the time of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) but was done
after him now is innovation (bid at). By this definition as well, they could not save
themselves from being strict innovators so they started saying, Innovation means addition
in the religion. Even with this they could not prove what was meant by additions. Rather,
according to the Shareeat and Sunnah every work which they kept calling as an addition to
religion was also proven by their own books and by their own acts. So once again, they
started deceiving and misleading by using words such as "because", "consequently",
"supposing" and "that is, etc. And they started saying this was only a conflict in words. But
reality manifests itself, hence these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars had to write:
There are two kinds of bid'at [innovations]: innovation can be good and they can also be
bad. (*)
______________________________
(*) It should be clear that the Scholars of Deoband has written Tableeghi Jamaaat and its
preaching is Bid at e Hasnah (Good Innovation). See also Usuul-e-Dawat-o-Tableegh(author:
Janaab Abdur Raheem Shah) and the verdict of the Imaam of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi, Imaam
Shah Ismaaeel Dehlvi, is present in Al Durr-ul Munazzam pp. 104, 105. In this, he accepts both
types of bid aat (innovations), Hasnah and Saiyiah and narrates the saying of Imaam Shaafiee.
That Imaam Shaafiee says, Any new thing which is against the Quraan and Sunnah, or the consensus of Ummah or the narration is Bid at-e-Dalaalah [innovation which deviates]. And any new
thing which is a kind of good in religion, which is also not against the Quraan and Sunnah, nor is
against the consensus of the Ummah: that innovation is Bid at-e-Mahmoodah [innovation which is
liked]. So it is proven that there is consensus on Bid at-e-Hasnaa being recommended. In the
same verdict, Ismaaeel Dehlvi has written the reference of the teacher of Allamah Ibne Hujar, To
celebrate Eid on the day of birth of the Prophet is amongst the best Bid aat-e-Hasnah [good
innovations].

130

It will not be without interest for the readers that the meaning of innovation (bid at)
has always been a controversial issue amongst the scholars of Deoband. Therefore, Rasheed
Ahmad Gangohi Saahib has described his spiritual guide and teacher, Haaji Imdaad-ul Laah
Saahib, as unknowledgeable and has declared the standpoint of his Peer-o-Murshid to be
incorrect and has said, It is the duty of the disciple to correct his spiritual guide. The same
Gangohi Saahib is also calling Thanvi Saahib as wrong. The author of "Johannesburg to
Bareilly" and the present breed of scholars of Deoband consider Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib as
Mujaddid-e-Millat (The Revivalist of the Nation) and Hakeem-ul-Ummat (Wiseman of the
Nation). Whereas, Janaab Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Saahib writes in one of his letters to
Thanvi Saahib, "You have still not understood the meaning of bid at [innovation].
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, p. 122, vol 1)

Readers must have fully understood by now that these Deobandi Wahaabis only want
to protect themselves. They are certainly not concerned with protecting the golden principles
of Islaam. Call it a miracle of the Divine that every such act on which these people impose
the verdict (fatwaa) of being innovators (bidaatees) and deviators on us, Sunnis, all of those
acts are, in the same way or with more passion, done by them.
With the blessings of Allaah Kareem, this servant of the Ahle Sunnat has already said
and, with full confidence and honesty, says so again that I have documented proof of these
facts. These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis themselves perform all the acts of Meelaad Shareef;
gathering to remember the martyrdom of Saiyyidina Imaam Husaien; processions; Faatihah
and Quraan Khawaani for forwarding rewards etc.; annually celebrate Urs and Barsi (annual
death anniversary), with great publicity, by fixing the date, announcement of the time and
venue and all the acts of visiting the shrines etc. but they have specified the verdict (fatwaa) of
being innovators (bidaatees) and polytheism only against us, Sunnees. If they themselves do
the acts which are wrong according to their own verdict (fatwaa) then it is allowed but if anyone else does those acts then it is not allowed.
Respected readers, you will say so yourself: if this is not mockery with religion then
what is it? And despite this, their claim is that they are the rightly guided scholars (Ulamaa-eHaqq). Although if they are called the predators of religion, it would not be wrong. We pray
to Allaah that He may protect us from their evil.
Dear readers! This servant of the Ahle-Sunnat has already said in his booklet
"Deoband to Bareilly, The Truth" that their aim is to divert the Muslims from the spirit of
Islaam and they are doing this work with the direction and financial support of their nonMuslim masters. And those simple minded Muslims, are caught in the web of conspiracies of
these deceitful people, for not being aware of the facts, they do not realize these Deobandi

131

Wahaabis are leading them to the great abyss of destruction. Their forcing to say Salaat
(prayers) is only their showing tactics. Let me give a proof from their Muhammad Ilyaas
Saahib, the founder of the Tableeghi Jamaaat, on page 6 of his book Da'wat. He says:
"Miyaan Zaheer-ul-Hasan, nobody understands what I want. People think this [Tableeghi
Jamaaat] is a movement of Salaat [Namaaz]. I say it on oath that this is certainly not a
movement of Salaat." One day, a in pessimistic mood he has said, "Miyaan Zaheer-ul-Hasan,
we have to produce a new nation."
(Muhammad Ilyaas Aur Un Ki Deeni Dawat, p. 199, written Abul Hasan Alee Nadvi, printed Majlis-e-Nashriyaat-eIslaam, Karachi.)

What do the scholars of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis and the general people say
about this statement of their own Ilyaas Saahib? Who is right? If they call Ilyaas Saahib
correct then all of these Tableeghis, who call the Tableeghi Jamaaat a movement of Salaat, are
liars. And if they all call themselves correct then their founders will be called liars. And the
readers will know this very well that all of them, big or small, they are all liars. May Allaah
may protect us from them.
Some time ago, criticisms were raised by the same Deobandi Wahaabis against the
book Fazaa'il-e-A'maal (which was previously called Tableeghi Nisaab) of Deobandis Shaiekh-ul
-Hadees, Muhammad Zakariya Saahib Kandhalvi. Amongst the objections, one objection was
this: The people of the Tableeghi Jamaaat are ignoring the books of the elders scholars of
Deoband and are destroying them. The people of the Tableeghi Jamaaat only had the book
Fazaa'il-e-A'maal. They did not have with them the books of Ashraf Ali Thanvi, Husaien
Ahmad Madni and others. In reply to this criticism Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariya Saahib
and Muhammad Shaahid Saharanpuri Saahib said, "The books included in the Tableeghi
curriculum are in accordance to the basic aims of the Tableeghi movement and they have
been written keeping in view the principles and goals of the movement." They say, It is not a
secret that our aim is to make people Deobandi," meaning that according to the founder of
the Jamaaat, Maulana Muhammad Ilyaas Saahib: The teachings of Maulana Ashraf Ali
Thanvi and the ways of Maulana Muhammad Ilyaas." He further says, "One of the very old
and original aims of the Tableeghi Jamaaat is that the masaa'il [religious issues] should not be
discussed at meeting of the Jamaaat or Tableeghi congregations." He writes the reason for
this as, "Discussion on problems might create discontent and unhappiness and after this
sadness people will not attend Tableeghi congregations."(*)

The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and all his associates, the Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis must be fully aware of these sayings of their elders. Even after this will they still
call the Tableeghi Jamaaat a movement of Salaat (Namaaz) or a reforming movement?
Dear readers, Those people whose fundamental mission is to not tell the true
commands of the Qur'aan and the Sunnah? Only because the people will be unhappy, how
can you expect them to raise the slogan of truth? Then think for yourselves: what kind of
preaching is done by these Tableeghi Jamaaat who wander around here and there without
dignity? Believe me, the interior and exterior of the people of the Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghi Jamaaat is not the same. The example of the teeth of an elephant fits them
perfectly, one for eating and the other only for show. This is called hypocrisy. May Allaah
protect us from them and their evils!
Just look at another criticism and its answer. The author of the booklet
"Johannesburg to Bareilly" (on page 9, part 2) has raised this criticism after printing an exact
copy of page 12 of the published Wasaayaa Shareef of Imaam-e-Ahle Sunnat Hazrat Maulana
Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him). Even though this person, who is
devoid of all wisdom, failed to see on that same copy a conclusive answer to this is also
present. But it is a reality that those afflicted with prejudice and hatred, they cannot see the
truth because baseless grudges and hostility not only destroys ones wisdom but also makes
one lose all qualities of the senses. These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis were under the
impression that their wicked activities will succeed in South Africa because all the Muslims of
South Africa were not aware of the facts. They thought that every lie of theirs would remain
under a smokescreen. But they did not realize the from the salvos of the loaded machine gun
which is directed towards true Sunni Muslims, they will themselves become the same target
of the salvos of their own machine gun. Therefore, see the following:
In the last paragraph of Wasaayaa Shareef by Imaam of the Ahle-Sunnat, Alaa Hazrat
Barelvi, of which a copy has been printed on page 9 part 2, of "Johannesburg to Bareilly,
Alaa Hazrat says: "Razaa Husaien and Hasnaien, all of you should live in love and harmony
and as much as possible, do not leave the followings of Shareeat. And my Deen [religion] and
Mazhab, which is clearly evident from my books, stays firm that this is more obligatory than
all obligations. May Allaah give you the capacity to do so, Was-Salaam.
______________________________
(Continued from page 132)Abdul Laah has written a book with the name of Al Qaul Al Baleegh Fit
Tahzeer Min Jamaaat Tableegh which has been published by Daar ul Samabee An Nashr Watt , Riyadh in which the leaders of Tableeghi Jamaaat have been proven to be polytheists and innovators,
the hypocritical Tableeghi Jamaaat has been proven to be wayward and the Ulamaa of Deoband have
been declared to be polytheists and Dajjaal (liars).

133

The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" has objected to only two words present in
this paragraph and these two words are: "my religion. On the basis of these two words,
these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis are trying to prove Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Maaazal
Laah, Allaah forbid) had invented some new religion, otherwise why would these words of
my religion be used?
Basically this objection has no value because the full sentence present on page 9 part 2
of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" says: "My Deen [religion] and Mazhab which is apparent from
my books. If only a few books out of more then the thousand books which were written by
Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) are read then nobody would be able to deny this
fact that Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) was undoubtedly a true preacher of the
Qur'aan and Sunnah, a defender of the Islaamic faith and a true well-wisher of the Muslims.
If even one thing can not be proven to be against the true doctrines and rules of Islaam in any
of his writings then to say "my religion" means anything other than the religion of Islaam
would be only foolishness and ignorance. Because Alaa Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on him) has not
used only the words "my religion, but the full sentence is, "My religion and Mazhab which is
most obvious from my books," and before this sentence he has urged the strict following of
Shareeat. Besides this, if the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi people are not willing to
acknowledge the facts then they should see the state of their own house with open eyes and
realize they cannot even see the defects of their own eyes and yet they roam around trying to
find specks in the perception of others. Read the Ilzaami Jawaab convincing answer.
In a meeting of Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariya Saharanpuri (a Deobandi Wahaabi
scholar) held on 19th Ramadaan-ul-Mubaarak 1390 AH, Taqiy-ud-deen Nadvi Mazaahari had
written that the scholars of Deoband, Manzoor Nu'maani and Abul Hasan Nadvi also
participated in this meeting. He had said, "Hold on firmly to the religion established by our
elders, Hazrat Gangohi [Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi] and Hazrat Naanotvi [Muhammad
Qaasim Naanotvi]. It is not possible now that someone like Rasheed and Qaasim will be born
again, so stay engaged in following them with devotion.
(Suhbat-e-Baa-Auliyah, p. 125, printed H. M. Saeed Company Naashiaaran Kutub, Karachi, 1982 AD)

Dear readers! Please pay attention to the mentioned words said by the head of the
Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi Jamaaat, Shaiekh Muhammad Zakariya Saahib Kandhalvi. He
is saying, The religion which was established by Gangohi and Naanotvi.
On the basis of these words, if someone says that Gangohi Saahib and Naanotvi Saahib
had established a new or separate religion then the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis should
not, not at all try to prove that these two used to preach only Islaam by showing books
written by them. Firstly, because the books of these two contain polytheist writings and

134

secondly, after the words "the religion", Zakariya Saahib mentions only two names, of
Gangohis and Naanotvi's; their books are not even mentioned. Moreover, Zakariya Saahib is
urging people to follow only Gangohi and Naanotvi and not the Shareeat.
Also, listen what is said on page 113 of Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol 1: "By Allaah the Great,
drinking the water used in washing Maulana Thanvi's feet is the cause of salvation in the
next life.
Readers should note how much certainty has been given to this sentence by beginning
it with swearing by Allaah. Therefore, the Deobandi Wahaabis are free from Deen (religion),
Ieemaan (belief), namaaz (praying) and rozah (fasting); according to their verdict of their mufti
(jurist) they should drink the water used in bathing the feet of Thanvi and get salvation.
Please view another saying of Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Saahib. He says, "Must listen,
haqq [truth] is only that which come out of the mouth of Rasheed Ahmad and I say on oath
that I am nothing but, in the present time, guidance and salvation depends on following me.
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, p. 17, vol 2)

With what certainty these words have been said! If a person says, Haqq [truth] is only
that which Gangohi says. Whatever has been said by all the Prophets, Companions, Friends
of Allaah and the rightly guided scholars is not the truth and whatever is said by all the
Deobandi Wahaabi scholars of the world is also not true, any recourse should not be taken
by such words like "because", "consequently", "if", and "supposing for this. Nor attempts
should be made to prove Gangohi Saahib as innocent, otherwise there will be double the
difficulty for the Deobandi Wahaabis. Rather, it should be accepted that this statement of
Gangohi Saahib is an absolutely lie. Because a lie is something that is said against the facts
and these words of Gangohi Saahib are, undoubtedly, against the facts. When this is proven
that Gangohi Saahib speaks lies then say for yourselves, to depend for guidance and salvation from a liar is a matter of much distance, will it even be possible?
Respected readers! This servant of the Ahle Sunnat says once again: The scholars and
ordinary members of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghism are the enemies of us, the Ahle-Sunnat
-Wa-Jamaaat, because we show them their faces in the mirror of books written by their own
elders. When they see their own faces spotted in the mirror then only two options are left
open for them: either they remove the spots from their faces or they break the mirror. The
mirror is the books by their own elders and the spots on their face are the unjustified criticism
which they raise against us. But there is a famous proverb: A rope may burn out but it will
not give up its twists (meaning habits take longer to die). (There is also another proverb of
the same nature concerning the tail of a dog. But, by the grace of Allaah, the tongue and pen
of this sinner cannot tolerate such improper ways of saying things). This is the condition of

135

these people, they neither destroy the worthless books of their elders by drowning them in
sea nor do they stop raising baseless allegations against us, Ahle-Sunnat. No matter what
you do, their stubborn and ruthless attitude of saying I will not accept does not end. After
Ilzaami Jawaab (convincing answer) now see the real reply of the words of Alaa Hazrat
Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), "my religion", in the light of the Qur'aan and Sunnah.
In the Holy Qur'aan, Almighty Allaah says, Al Yauma Akmaltu LakumDeenakum (Today I have completed your religion for you) (Chapter #5, Verse #3). When
Almighty Allaah Himself says, "your religion," then if any Muslim says, "my religion," surely
this cannot be wrong.

According to a hadees (Tirmizee# 3120, Aboo Daaood#4753) Two angels ask three questions
in the grave. And their second question is Maa Deenuka (What is your religion?). A Mumin
gives its reply, Deeni-yal-Islaam (My religion is Islaam). It is requested to the Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars and to the general public that when any one of them go to their
graves they should clearly say to the Munkar-Nakeer (angels), No religion of mine,
otherwise all the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis should accept that the criticism raised by
them against Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah be pleased with him) is based on nothing except baseless
enmity against Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah be pleased with him).
See another lie of the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" on page 25 of part 2 of
his booklet.
After quoting a part of the Wasaayaa Shareef of Imaam of Ahle-Sunnat, Alaa Hazrat
Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), the author of "Johannesburg to
Bareilly openly exhibits his lies and wicked personality. He says,
It is interesting to note that Ahmed Razaa Khan does not say that these
things should be given to the poor and convey the rewards of it to me. Nay, he
says, send these things
After writing this much, irrespective to what he, the author of Johannesburg to
Bareilly, has written by adopting spiteful and disrespectful language according to his bad
habit, I will say only this much concerning the lies of the author of Johannesburg to Bareilly,
Lanatul-Laahi 'Alal Kaazibeen (Allaah's curse be on the liars). After this reply from the
Qur'aan, for the information of the readers I will add: Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on
him) told his relatives in his last will, If it is easily possible for you then give Faatihah on good
things for Ieesaal e Sawaab [forwarding rewards], and also mentioned some good traditional
dishes for giving to the poor and needy. But while dictating his direction in regards to

136

forwarding rewards for Faatihah and feast, clearly what he had mentioned before, see his own
words:
"Do not give anything out from the food of the feast of Faatihah to the wealthy, but
only give it to the poor and, that too, with respect and hospitality, not by rebuking them.
Hence nothing should be done which is against Sunnah.
Immediately after these words, the two statements of Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have
mercy on him) are written, the photocopy of which is printed by the author of "Johannesburg to
Bareilly" on page 27, part 2 of his book. But these words of the instructions are removed by
the author of the book Johannesburg to Bareilly: The food of the Faatihah should not be
given to the wealthy but should only be given to the poor, this sentence is taken out.
Readers should evaluate for themselves how many lies and deception has been
exhibited by the author of Johannesburg to Bareilly. Even after this, the Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghi scholars call themselves Ulamaa-e-Haqq, the rightly guided scholars. They should
be ashamed of themselves.
After knowing about the condition of such acts and the dirty beliefs of these Deobandi
Wahaabis, is it possible for anyone to imagine these Deobandi Wahaabis, who speak in all
forms of lies and indulge in making a mockery of religion, have anything to do with truth or
purity? No, not at all.
The elderly jurist of Deobandis, himself, Mufti Muhammad Shafee Saahib says:
"After distorting and twisting someones writing against his real intention and aim, to place a
false allegation on him is an open accusation. No one will have any doubt in calling this forbidden.
(Sunnat and Bid at, p. 10, printed Daar-ul-Ishaaat, Karachi)

Dear readers, can the people indulging in unlawful acts be called "Ahle Haqq (the
people of truth)? You will surely give the same answer as well that certainly such people can
not be called Ahle Haqq, rightly guided people of truth. These Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghi scholars can never be called rightly guided scholars. Rather due to their filthy
beliefs and bad actions they are, without any doubt, Bad Scholars (Ulamaa-e-Soo).
The last printed will of Thanvi Saahib is also available. He says: After I am gone,
those with whom I have association during my lifetime, my association should overpower
your thoughts. It is my will that if twenty people would combine and make themselves
responsible for the payment of a rupee every month to her [Thanvi Saahib's wife] then she
will have no difficulty.

137

(Tambihaat-e-Vasiyyat, p. 2, Ashraf-us Sawaanih, p. 118, vol 3)

Alaa Hazrat Barelvi had made this will to his relatives: After me take care of the poor
and do nothing against the tradition of the Prophet." And this Thanvi Saahib of the Deobandi
Wahaabis has no confidence in Almighty Allaah and so he urges Ghaierul Laah (Non-Allaah),
stresses only for his wife and he has no care for the poor. During his life as well, Thanvi
Saahib only cared for himself. Therefore, listen to Thanvi Saahib in his own words, what had
he kept saying all his life? He, himself, says:
"If a guest would come to my house then I eat simple and ordinary food with the
guests. If there was no guest then besides the usual, I also eat such food which provides
strength to me for example, milk and halwah [a sweet dish] etc..
(Al lfaazaat-ul-Yaumiyah, part 7, p. 71)

This practice of Thanvi Saahib with guests tells that Janaab Thanvi would deceive his
guests about his eating less to show false simplicity. Not only this, see what he did with gifts
received by him. He, himself, says: "Certain things are such that they can immediately be
used as soon as they come. But sometimes certain things come, about which I had to think:
what should be done with them? So either I would give them to someone or if stinginess
dominated on me then I would think: Why should I give them away for free? Let me sell
them and make some money from them. Therefore I would sell them and make money.
(Ashraful Ma'moolaat, p. 23, Al-Noor, Month Shawwaal-ul-Mukarram, 1350 AH, Printed Ashraful Mataabe, Thaanah
Bhavan)

The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" must remember very well what the Holy
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has said concerning a miser. He should ponder on it
himself. Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib who calls himself Muttabe-e-Sunnat (Follower of the
Traditions), himself, says: If I was overpowered by stinginess [meaning being a miser was
his habit] but sometimes it would surface a lot and when it would dominate then I used to do
business with the gifts and the presents given by the people.

Listen further! Thanvi Saahib, himself, says: My whole life is spent as a parasite. At
first, I was a parasite to my father's earnings. Only for a very short period in between I lived
on salary. After that, the same way of being a parasite continues. Meaning that since a long
time I have been living on nazraanon [money and gifts given respectfully by people]. You neither have to do anything nor have to earn a living.
(Al Ifaazaat ul-Yaumiyah, part 1, p. 354, printed Deoband)

138

The Imaam of Ahle-Sunnat, Alaa Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah
be pleased with him), in his last will, is giving instructions for feeding the poor tasty dishes with
honor and respect while the Hakeem-ul-Ummat of the Deobandis has no spare time for
anything else beside filling his own stomach and being a parasite.
Read this, concerning the Imaam of the Deobandis, Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Saahib:
"A person requested to Hazrat Gangohi, Hazrat, get your teeth made. He said, What will
happen after getting [my] teeth made again, I will have to chew meat. At present, people
take pity on me because I have no teeth and therefore I get soft halwah [sweet dish] to eat.
(Al Ifaazaat ul-Yaumiyah, part 2, p. 23)

Also see this: the veteran Imaam of the Deobandi-ism, Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti says,
"My supplications do not even stick without mithaa'ee [sweetmeat]." (Arwaah-e-Salaasah, p. 23)
(The use of the word stick for supplication (duaa) can only be done by the Imaam of
Deobandis.)
Furthermore, see this: "Hazrat [Husaien Ahmad Madni] used to say, Haaji Saahib
[Badr-ud-deen], why did you not bring mithaa'ee [sweetmeat] with you? When I would say,
Respected sir, I have no money, then Hazrat [Husaien Ahmad Madni] would order his
students to search me [Haaji Badr-ud-deen]. And then all the students who would be
present, they would just pounce on me [Haaji Badr-ud-deen] and all the money that I would
have would be spend on buying sweets which would be distributed to everyone according to
their share. Also, sometimes Hazrat would snatch my sherwaani [outer apparel] as a joke and
keep it with him and say, It will only be given back when you will give money for mithaa'ee
[sweetmeat]. Then I would have to give money When Hazrat would be more moody then
he would ask his young daughter Imraana to read this verse:
Kaheen Hai Roos Ka Batwaa Kahee Hai Cheen Ka Batwaa
Hai Hazrat Shaiekh Ki Mahfil May Badr-ud-deen Ka Batwaa
(Some where there is the purse of China somewhere the purse of Russia
Sigh in the gathering of Hazrat there is the purse of Badr-ud-Deen)
(Shaiekh-ul-lslaam Number, Al-Jami'at, Delhi, p. 185)

The Deobandi Tableeghis call this Husaien Ahmad Tandvi Madni Saahib as the
Shaiekh-ul-Islaam (Chief of Islaam). This is the same Husaien Ahmad Madni whom, when
he gave verdicts (fataawaa) against the ideologies of the Qur'aan, the Poet of the East, Allamah
Doctor Muhammad Iqbaal condemned in his poetry and said publicly: This Shaiekh-ul-Islaam

139

of Deobandis is not aware of the status and station of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam) and he is talking like Abu Lahab.
Dear readers, every action has a reaction. These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis
have been most disrespectful to the beloved of Almighty Allaah, the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam), and had gone to the extent of practicing infidelity. The result is very clear
that the punishment for being disrespectful to the Beloved of Allaah (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam), which they have received in this world is, was that they were humiliated in this world
and they will be humiliated till the Day of Judgement. And what will happen to them on the
Day of Judgement, it will be witnessed by all creations, In Shaa Allaah. When infidel,
Waleed Bin Mugheerah, showed insolence in the grandeur of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi' Wa Sallam), Almighty Allaah degraded him like so that ten of his sins are expressed in
the Holy Quraan. (You can see them in the Holy Qur'aan, Chapter 68, part 29)
Hence from this it is learnt that to condemn those disrespectful to the Holy Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and to expose his other evils is proven by the Quraan. See in the
Qur'aan, Namrood (Nimrod) claimed to be a god. Fir'aun (Pharaoh) also claimed to be a god.
Almighty Allaah let them loose; they kept on ruling but when they were disrespectful to the
Beloveds of Allaah and insolent to the Prophets of Allaah then this Namrood who claimed
himself to be a god died after being disgraced by an ordinary creation, a mosquito. And
Fir'aun (Pharaoh) was drowned with his entire army.
A favorite student of the Imaam of the Deobandis, Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi, named
Husaien Ali Saahib Wan Bhachranvi (*) was very disrespectful and insolent. You have
already seen the detail of some impure writings of his book Bulqhat-ul-Hairaan quoted by
me in my book "Deoband to Bareilly (The Truth). It happened to him that a few days before
his death, his intestines became such that his feces (stool) would come into his mouth.
Sometimes he would throw it up out of his mouth and sometimes he would swallow it again.
His legs had become such that when he would urinate, his urine would sprinkle back on to
his face. And a student of the same Husaien Ali, Ghulaam Khan of Rawalpindi (the
Deobandis call him Shaiekh-ul-Qur'aan Ghulam-ul-Laah Khan) was even more disrespectful
and insolent than his teacher. Before his death in Dubai (U.A.E), his whole tongue came out
of his mouth on which ugly black blisters were formed and his face became like that of a dog.
______________________________
(*) In "Johannesburg to Bareilly, part 2, p. 1, a foolishness of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis
has been mentioned by themselves. It is written, "This is the first time that we have heard of this
book Bulgatul-Hairaan.

If those who propagate and defend Wahaabi-ism in South Africa are not aware of their own
scholars and the books written by them then while being unaware of their own house, they have no
right to criticize others. The irony is that while pretending to be unaware of the book Bulqhat-ulHaieraan, the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" is trying to prove the (Continued on next page)
140

This news was published in the newspapers of Pakistan as headlines and this
instruction of the doctors was written on the coffin, The face of Ghulaam Khan is not worth
seeing."
It is a matter of a year ago that a Wahaabi mullaa, Habeeb-ur Rahmaan Yazdaani, while
addressing a public meeting at Lahore said: "Sunnee Barelvis say, Daataa [Ganj Bakhsh] can
do many things. If he can do many thing, then he should show [demonstrate his powers] by
breaking my legs. Therefore people witnessed that on the same day his legs were broken
and he received the punishment of being disrespectful to Hazrat Daataa Saahib (Allaah be pleased
with him).

Dear readers! Stories about these disrespectfuls and their disrespect are only narrated
so that the people would be warned and not be disrespectful or insolent in any way to the
Beloveds of Allaah nor praise and support those who are disrespectful. But sadly, these
Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis have no time for doing anything else beside praising and
supporting the insolent of the Beloved of Allaah. This action of the Deobandi Wahaabis is
undoubtedly a cause to earn Allaah's wrath and displeasure. Therefore, the Imaam of the
Deobandis, Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Saahib says:
"Taking out words of infidelity and polytheism from the tongue and and to prove it
with evidence and to discard its criticism is itself a proof of [someones] belief and suppose it
is not the belief, even then it is unlawful and brings the Wrath of Allaah. For example, if
someone calls you an ass or a swine or calls dirty insult and that person does not believe that
you are an ass or a swine or anything that he has insulted you, he is only saying so by his
tongue. But tell me, will you be angry on him or not? Definitely you will be. So similarly,
_______________________________
(Continued from page 140) statements in Bulqhat-ul-Haieraan as correct. If this is not foolishness,
then what is it?
If the promoters and protectors of Deobandism who live in South Africa do not know about their
own scholars and their books so they have no right to abuse others without knowing about their own
house. The worth viewing irony is even after showing unawareness to this book Bulghat-ul-Haieraan,
the author of Johannesburg to Bareilly is trying to prove the statement of the Bulghat-ul-Haieraan as
correct. This is not his foolishness than what is this?
For the information of the readers, I must state that whenever we, the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat, show
to these recent Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis writings of their own veteran scholars then they start
looking at each others faces. Because they have no interest in learning about the conditions of the evil
of their own house and in reading the books of their own elders. Otherwise they would not have dared
to raise false and unfounded allegations against us, the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaaat. It is a sincere
advice of this servant of Ahle-Sunnat, to all the recent Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis: if possible, get
acquainted with the writings of your own elder scholars and before you criticize us you should also find
out what the view of your own scholars about this criticism of yours is. Maybe by this you will possibly
be saved from disgrace and humiliation. Otherwise we will keep on answering your allegations in the
light of the writings of your own elders so that the creation of Allaah will know that your Deobandi
Wahaabi-ism is merely a bundle of lies.
141

you should consider that words of infidelity and polytheism, they will surely bring wrath of
Allaah because Allaah Almighty is more the Utmost Protector of Honor than the most selfrespecting muslims."
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, p. 94, vol 1)

The recent scholars of Deoband should ponder over the writings of their own Imaam.
According to their own verdicts (fataway) the statements, which are definitely infidelity and
polytheism, are haraam (prohibited). These Deobandi Wahaabis not only saying with their
own tongues but they propagate and preach them and also give evidences to prove them
correct. According to their own Imaam, by doing this, they are proving their own belief on
these words and all of this deserves to earn the anger and wrath of Allaah. And in case this is
not their belief, even then uttering such words is forbidden and all the Deobandi Wahaabis
are doing this forbidden work. Sadly they, by themselves, their own status according to their
own Imaam (leader) is involved in doing these forbidden and polytheist deeds of infidelity.
But these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars, who claim to show light to others, are not in
their own senses. In what depth of darkness they, themselves, are! May Allaah protect us
from their evils!
By placing one more allegation against Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him)
on page 10, part 2 of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" it proves the complete ignorance of these
Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis. Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), in his poetry
(Manzoon Kalaam), has also praised Hazrat Mahboob-e-Subhaani Ghaus-e-A'zam Shaiekh, Abdul
Qaadir Jeelaani (Allaah be pleased with him), in many poetic forms. Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have
mercy on him) has composed many quartets, according to the order of the letters of the name of
Hazrat Ghaus-e-Azam (Allaah be pleased with him) and has also wrote many quartets beside this.
In one quartet, he has mentioned with great reverence and devotion, the excellences of the
attributes of letters of the name (in Arabic) Abdul Qaadir of Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Ghaus-eA'zam (Allaah be pleased with him). When we write the name of Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Ghaus e Azam
(Allaah be pleased with him) Abdul Qaadir, the fourth and the seventh letter of the name is
"Alif" and the last letter is "Ray" and this last letter in the name has been interpreted to mean
the End (The Finale). The author of the booklet "Johannesburg to Bareilly" has printed only
the last couplet of the quatrain. If he was honest then he would have printed the whole
quatrain but he knew that, in the case of printing the whole quatrain, learned people will
come to know that the objection of the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" was merely
because of his own ignorance and his baseless enmity with Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have
mercy on him).

Here, I consider it very important to tell the readers all the elderly scholars of Deoband
have said, Every line of the manzoom [poetry] of Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) is
142

filled with the love of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). None of the elderly
scholars of Deoband found any mistake in the poetical work of Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah
have mercy on him). They absolutely did not make any objection. Perhaps this author of the
booklet "Johannesburg to Bareilly" is even a bigger scholar than all the scholars of Deoband
and only due to this greater knowledge and intelligence of his, he is providing the means of
disgracing his elders. (*)
Dear readers, please see the complete (Persian) quatrain of Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah
have mercy on him) below from which only one couplet has been printed by the author of
"Johannesburg to Bareilly" in order to place a severe allegation against Alaa Hazrat Barelvi
(Allaah have mercy on him):

Bar Wahadat e 'Uoo Raabe' Abdul Qaadir


Yak Shaahid-o-Duo Saabe' Abdul Qaadir
Anjaam-e-Wai Aaghaaze Risaalat Baashad
Aienak Guo Hum Taabe-Abdul Qaadir
The translation of this quatrain is: On the Oneness [Tawheed] of Almighty Allaah,
"The fourth letter of Abdul Qaadir [when written in Arabic], Alif, is a witness, and the
seventh letter of the same name Abdul Qaadir [when written in Arabic], Alif, is a second
witness of the Wahdat [Oneness]. The name Abdul Qaadir ends with Raa which is the first
letter of the word Risaalat'. So, it can be said that the quality of this name of Abdul
Qaadir [only wordwise] is such that all these sacred points are under the name of Abdul
Qaadir and they are derived from the blessed and loved name of Abdul Qaadir.

It is also a fact that Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) is saying in the last
couplet of this quatrain: Hazrat Ghaus-e-A'zam Shaiekh Abdul Qaadir Jeelaani (Allaah be pleased

Therefore, he lacks the knowledge of Arabic and Persian completely. He should see what his leader,
Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib, has said about English. He says: "English is not any knowledge; what
association does it have with religion? Rather, those who read it often become unconcerned with
religion." (Karnaalaat'-i-Ashrafiyah, p. 70)
Therefore, according to their own leader, the author of Johannesburg to Bareilly is proven to
be unconcerned with religion and he has also provided the proof of this in his own booklets.

Allaah (Salutations on them) begins.
with him)

The dishonest authors of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and the evil propagandists of


Deobandi Wahaabi-ism, on the basis of their ignorance and cheapness, translate the last
couplet of this quatrain like this, "Prophethood will proceed again after Abdul Qadir
Jilani, and this new prophet will be initially a follower of the said Sheikh. In
reply to this objection, I will only repeat this famous (Arabic) proverb, The one who has
absolutely no knowledge of Islaamic jurisprudence has become the author of a book on
Islaamic jurisprudence.
This is an utter misfortune and a punishment for the evil deeds of these propagandists
of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism that they do not have the capacity to understand the poetry of the
Imaam of Ahle-Sunnat, Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him). And beside their
ignorance they raise allegations and place slander against Alaa Hazrat Faazil-e-Barelvi (Allaah
have mercy on him) and in this way they make arrangements for their own humiliation. Actually
these so-called scholars of the Deobandi Wahaabis did not understand the meaning of the
first couplet of this quatrain, due to which they created a wrong and twisted meaning of the
second couplet from their own side. They criticize the True Guardian of the belief of Khatm-eNabuuwat (The Finality of Prophethood), Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), and
thereby earn the wrath of Allaah.
The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" has written this about Alaa Hazrat Barelvi
(Allaah have mercy on him), Since Alaa Hazrat Barelvi calls himself Qaadiree, therefore
he is subservient to Shaiekh Abdul Qaadir. Thus, Alaa Hazrat is calling himself a
Prophet." This is, undoubtedly, a great slander against Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy
on him). The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and his supporters will, In Shaa Allaah, be
punished for placing this slander.
Those Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, who raise extreme slander against Alaa Hazrat
Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), should see with open eyes
the verdict (fatwaa) and belief of Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) which he has
given in his book, Jazal Laahu Adwahu Baba-e-Khatm Nubuwwah, about the Finality of the
Prophethood.
He says: "Almighty Allaah is the Truth and His Book is true. As it is the first
obligation and condition of faith on every Muslim to believe Laa Ilaaha Illal Laahu [There is
no Deity but Allaah] and to accept Almighty Allaah as Ahad, Samad [He is The One, The
Independent] and Laa Shareeka Lahu [He has no partner]. Similarly [it is mandatory on us]

144

to believe Muhammad, the Holy Prophet of Allaah (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), is the Last
Prophet. To believe the possibility of an appearance of any new Prophet after his [Holy
Prophet Muhammads] physical presence or after him is certainly absolutely rejected. [To believe like this] is most mandatory and the essential of the faith.
The definitive text of the Qur'aan is, But he is the Prophet of Allaah and the Final of
the Last Prophets. Not only the person who denies this but also he who has any doubt about
it, has even the slightest doubt about it or keeps even the weakest suspicion against it, absolutely, according to consensus, he is cursed in hell. Not only is such a person an infidel but
another person, who after acknowledging his accursed belief, does not consider him to be an
infidel is also an infidel and who shows any doubt or hesitation in acknowledging him as an
infidel is also an infidel himself"
(p. 6, printed Maktabah Nabaviyyah, Lahore)

Even after writing not only one but several books with his own pen, Alaa Hazrat
Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) also gave a clear verdict on the topic of The Finality of
Prophethood. To label such an allegation on Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) is,
undoubtedly, a clear proof of these Deobandi Wahaabis having inner evil and being true
liars. Here I must say so for the information of my readers that if you want to see the doors
open to Prophethood, read the book Tahzeerun Naas. The veteran leader of the Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghis, Muhammad Qaasim Naanotvi Saahib, does not even accept the Beloved
of Allaah, the Holy Prophet, Hazrat Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), as the Last
Prophet. It is written in the book of Naanotvi Saahib, Tahzeerun Naas: To believe the
meaning of Khaataman-Nabiyyeen to be the Last Prophet is the thinking of common people.
This meaning is not correct in front of the people with knowledge. (*)
Naanotvi Saahib writes: "Even if a prophet is born after the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam], the Finality of the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] will not be affected. From
this writing of Naanotvi Saahib, it is proven to obvious that, in front of Naanotvi Saahib, the
door of Prophethood is open after the Holy Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] and it is also
possible for a new Prophet to be born.
What a pity these Deobandi Wahaabis cannot see their own infidelity! Without any
reason, they try to prove other true Muslims as infidels. The author of "Johannesburg to
Bareilly" should see the statement of their own Deobandi Wahaabi elder, Ashraf Ali Thanvi
_____________________________
(*) The Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis should see the evidence of their very own Thanvi
Saahib. He says, The days when Maulana [Naanotvi] wrote Tahzeerun Naas, no person in the
entire India agreed with Maulana [Naanotvi] besides Maulana Abdul Haiey Saahib. Maulana Abdul Hai had unlimited devotion and adoration for our elders. (p. 580, Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, vol 4)

145

Saahib, concerning the habit of finding mistakes and labelling false accusations. On page 337
of part 4 of Al'lfaazaatul Yaumiyah, Thanvi Saahib says: "You are not aware of getting insects
on your own body, yet you are keenly observing the flies sitting on other peoples clothes.
Just look at yourself; in what state are you?
The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and his supporters should also see this
attentively. Their own Thanvi Saahib has said: "Some go to gardens for leisure walks, some
go to smell flowers, some eat fruits. But when a swine goes there, he will only look for filth
and if there are any feces or not. This is the example of a satiric [person]. No matter how
many qualities are present in a person, his vision only tries to find defects.
(Al- Ifaazaatul Yaumiyah, p. 337, part 4)

The Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, who are always placing wicked allegations against
Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him), they should view their own actions in a mirror
according to the above saying of their own Thanvi Saahib and, if possible, try to correct
themselves.
This servant of the Ahle Sunnat is showing its readers the true reality of these
Deobandi Wahaabis and is showing this from the writings of the Deobandi Wahaabis themselves. These days these propagandists of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism, in order to earn money,
are posing as the defenders of "Khatm-e-Nubuwwat" and are trying to prove that they are
warriors of faith against the Qaadiyaani. Yet, an elder of the Deobandi Wahaabis, Naanotvi
Saahib, has not accepted the meaning of "Khaatiman-Nabiyyeen" to be the last Prophet. And
he has accepted the possibility of the birth of a new Prophet after the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and because of this belief of infidelity, he has lost his Faith (Ieemaan). The
recent Deobandi Wahaabi scholars call all Qaadiyaani as infidels (kaafir) and apostates
(murtad). But they also try to prove their own Naanotvi Saahib as a true Muslim (Mu'min),
even as a contractor of religion despite having beliefs like the Qaadiyaani. Perhaps the
author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" might also be calling the Qaadiyaani as infidels. He
should carefully go through the words of this verdict (fatwaa) written on pages 7 and 8 of vol
1 of Fataawaa Daar-ul uloom, Deoband, and tell us what opinion we should have about these
Deobandi Wahaabis:
"Question: Can anyone who regards Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qaadiyaan as a
Muslim remain a Muslim after being aware of the fact that he has claimed Maseeheeyyat
[being Prophet Ieesaa] and Mahdiyyat [being Hazrat Mahdi]. Can that person be called a
Muslim?

146

Answer [verdict of Daar-ul uloom, Deoband]: The wrong beliefs of Mirza of Qaadiyaan
have reached to such an extent that, after knowing them, no one can call him a Muslim. But it
is possible that someone, who has no knowledge of [Mirzas] false beliefs or interpretates
them wrongly may call him a Muslim; this is possible. However, after gaining knowledge of
[Mirzas] evil beliefs, it is necessary that he should call Mirza an infidel. He, those who
follow him and who hold the same beliefs as him must not be called Muslims. He was not a
Muslim as it is evident from his books. Regarding a person who does not call him an infidel
due to some doubt or taweel [interpretation], he should not be called an infidel, also, because
in the situation of [making an] interpretation, there is caution to not declare one an infidel.
From bondsman, Azeez-ur-Rahmaan, Mufti of Daar-ul uloom, Deoband.
(Make it clear from this verdict of the jurist of Daar-ul-uloom, Deoband, that he has
accepted it to be evident from the writing of any person that he is not a Muslim.)
Janaab Abdul Maajid Darya Abaadi writes in his letter to Janaab Ashraf Alee Thanvi,
My heart always tries to find taaweel [interpretations] from the Qaadiyaani side.
(Page 259, Hakeem ul Ummat)

Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib says, "Great caution should be taken in declaring a person an
infidel. What is the harm if we do not call someone, who is in reality an infidel, as an
infidel?(*)
Furthermore he says, "Thus, if those doing infidelity are, in reality, infidels and we do
not call them infidels then will we be inquired about them on the Day of Judgement? And if
we call [an infidel as an infidel] then how many Rakaat rewards will we be receiving?"
(Kamaalaat-i-Ashrafiyah, p. 347 and 348)

Look at the third verdict (fatwaa): Wa Gar Ba Taa welay Wa Taujeehay Guyad
Kaafir Na Shawad " To be disrespectful and insolent to the Prophets (salutation on them) is
infidelity but if the words of disrespect and insolennce are said with taaweel [interpretation]
and explanation then he will not be an infidel.
_____________________________
(*) For the information of the readers it is submitted that to make a distinction between
infidelity and Islaam is one of the essentials of religion. You may avoid calling an infidel as an infidel
throughout your entire life but when the infidelity of this infidel becomes apparent, it is absolutely
necessary to regard him as an infidel on the basis of his infidelity. Otherwise, this is the law of
Shareeat that to not call infidelity as infidelity, is infidelity itself. Therefore the verdict of the
Deoband is also that someone who does not call an infidel as an infidel he, himself, will also be an
infidel. Thanvi Saahib himself says, Suppose, Lahoris [a group of Qaadiyaanis] do not call Mirza
[Qaadiyaani] a prophet but say that his beliefs of infidelity are not infidelity; to not consider infidelity
as infidelity is also infidelity. (Kamaalaat e Ashrafiyah Page 123)

147

(Imdaad-ul-Fataawaa, p. 126, part 4, printed Matbua Mujtabaaee, Delhi, and 1346 AH)

The founder of Daar-ul-uloom, Muhammad Qaasim Naanotvi Saahib, has not accepted
the meaning of "Khaatiman-Nabiyyeen"as the "Final Prophet" and has accepted it possible for
another Prophet to be born after the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). The same jurist
(mufti) of Daar-ul-uloom Deoband has given this verdict (fatwa) that an infidel should not be
called an infidel if the sentence of infidelity is from interpretation; it is not infidelity. And
moreover it is better not to call a person doing infidelity an infidel. Also, if an infidel is not
called an infidel then there is no harm in it etc. Instead of answering these writings on my
own, this servant of the Ahle Sunnat produces the writings of the scholars of Deoband below:

Janaab Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi says: It is the Command of Shareeat to call an


infidel as an infidel so why should a person have any difficulty in following it? We will also
consider him as an infidel and definitely call him an infidel on whom we see any sign of
infidelity.
(Tazkiraat-ur-Rasheed, p. 196, vol 2)

Gangohi Saahib says: To deliberately say any words of infidelity, even if you do not
believe it is infidelity Whoever has had any fun with words of infidelity, [he] will become
an apostate even if he does not believe it. Doing so by considering it insignificant will be as if
it is habitual infidelity. If a person does infidelity with his tongue (and pen) with happiness
and [even though] his heart is satisfied with Ieemaan then he will become an infidel and will
not remain a mumin [true Muslim] To remain happy on infidelity is [also] an infidelity
(Taaleefaat-e-Rasheediyah, p. 65, 66, Gangohi, Ikfaar-ul-Mulhideen, p. 59, 60, Khashmiri)

Janaab Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib says: "In the necessities of religion, taaweel
[interpretation] is not protection from infidelity." (Al Ifaazaatul Yaumiyah, part 7, p. 60) The same
Thanvi Saahib says: "If someone has even one aspect of infidelity in himself then he is consensually an infidel. (Al Ifaazaatul Yaumiyah, part 7, p. 234) Thanvi Saahib says: For infidelity, only
one thing is enough, will he not be an infidel who says just one thing of infidelity?
(Al Ifaazaatul Yaumiyah, vol. 6, p. 24)

He further says: "A Maulvee Saahib asked Hazrat [Thanvi Saahib] while talking about
the Qaadiyaani sect, Some Muslims do not consider Qaadiyaanis as an infidel, what is the
religious command on such Muslims? He [Thanvi] said, There are two conditions in which
the Qaadiyaanis are not considered infidels. One is that they [the Qaadiyaanis] would say that
these beliefs, due to which they are called infidels, are not the beliefs of the Qaadiyaanis.
And the other [condition] is that these are the beliefs of Qaadiyaanis, yet still they are not
infidels. Now a person who thinks so is also an infidel, who does not call infidelity as

148

infidelity. If he is an infidel under Ahkaam-i-Qazaa [Judicial Laws], under the rest of Ahkaam-iDiyaanat [the Laws of Probity] only Allaah knows. Perhaps, he has some unknown reason in
his mind which is only known to Almighty Allaah. "
(Al'lfaazaat-ul-Yaumiyah, vol. 6, p. 318)

(In the writing of Thanvi Saahib mentioned above, the preachers of Deobandi-ism
should carefully see the difference between judicial laws and the laws of honesty. They
should give us the answer about these statements and the verdicts of their own scholars.)
Janaab Murtazaa Hasan Deobandi, author of Ashad-dul A'zaab, writes on page 14:
A person who does not call an infidel as an infidel, he, himself, is an infidel. He further
says: To call an infidel, with beliefs of infidelity, a Muslim is also infidelity.
(p. 9)

The compiler of the fataawaa of Daar-ul-uloom, Deoband, Janaab Mufti Muhammad


Shafee Deobandi writes: "The Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] has informed us that he is
the Khaatam-un-Nabiyyeen [the Final Prophet] and there can be no Prophet after him. And this
information has been given to us by Almighty Allaah that he [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] is the
one who concludes the chain of Prophets. And the Ummah unanimously agree on this. This
saying is based on its clear meaning and the perception which comes to us through its clear
words. It means the same without any taaweel [interpretation] or particularization as well.
Thus, there is no doubt in the infidelity of those people who deny it and this is the final and
unanimous belief."
(Khatm-un-Nubuwwat Fil-Aasaar, p. 8)

The same Mufti Saahib, on page 21 of Hadiyyatul-Mahdiyeen, says: "Of course, it is


the unanimous and final verdict of Arabic dictionary that Khaatam-un-Nabiyyeen, occurring
in the Qur'aanic verse, only means Last Prophet and nothing else and beside this, there is
no other meaning. The Muslim Ummaah is unanimous on this meaning. So anyone who goes
against the unanimity of this agreed meaning of Khaatam-un-Nabiyyeen is an infidel and if he
persists against the unanimity then he should be sentenced [for changing this meaning].
After the verdict (fatwaa) of Mufti Muhammad Shafee Saahib Deobandi, see the
verdict of Janaab Muhammad Idrees Kandhalvi. In his book, Misk-ul-Khitaam he writes:
To deny that the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] is the Last Prophet is to deny the
fundamentals of religion. And it is obvious the denial of the fundamentals of religion is
absolute infidelity.

(p. 29)

Dear readers! You have observed the scholars of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis
place great slander on Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah be pleased with him) and saw the Powers of
Allaah, that is, how these Deobandi Wahaabis are punished from their own and each others
verdicts, all of which declare themselves as infidels. For the information of the readers, I
shall also state this: the brother of Abul Kalaam Aazaad (Deobandi) had praised Mirza
Ghulaam Ahmad Qaadiyaani. See this in, Hayaat-i-Taiyyibah (page 369, written by Abdul
Qaadir, Saudagar Mal). The readers should also know that the nikaah of Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad
Qaadiyaani was performed by considering him a Muslim by a famous Wahaabi scholar,
Shaiekhul-Kul (The Guide of Everyone), Nazeer Husaien Muhaddis Dehlvi.
(Hayaat-i-Taiyyibah, p. 76, Author Abdul Qaadir, Lahore, 1959 AD)

Also, read the details about another renowned senior spiritual leader of the
Deobandis, Janaab Abdul Qaadir Raipuri, after believing the wrong inspirations of Dajjaal,
the deceiver, liar, infidel and apostate, Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad Qaadiyaani, and requesting
him for instructions and guidance and of saying prayers behind this Qaadiyaani infidel and
apostate Imaam.
The present head of the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi Jamaaat, Janaab Abul Hasan Ali
Nadvi, on page 55 of his book, Sawaanih Abdul Qaadir Raipuri (printed by Maktabah e
Islaam, Lucknow) writes: "In those days, there was a great noise of the claims and invitations
of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qaadiyaani, especially in Punjab; only few Muslim localities were
free from these talks and discussions. His books and magazines were read amongst Muslims
and series of discussions and debates would continue about them. Near Dhudiyaa [the
hometown] of Hazrat [Abdul Qaadir Raipuri] is a place called 'Bhera'. A local scholar, who
was also a student of the family elders of Hazrat [Raipuri], Hakeem Noor-ud-deen
[Qaadiyaani] was a special devotee and assistant of Mirza Saahib [Qaadiyaani] and was
permanently settled in Qaadiyaan. For his help and his companionship, he permanently
settled in Qaadiyaan. It was a common talk in his circle of devotees and those who were
influenced by him that Mirza Saahib was a favored person of Allaah and his supplications are
accepted. Hazrat [Raipuri] had read such somewhere in Mirza Saahib's [Qaadiyaani's]
writings that Allaah had revealed to him this saying, Ujeebu kulla duaa'ika illaa fee
shurakaa'ika [I will grant all your supplications except those made for your partners]. So,
Hazrat [Raipuri] wrote a letter to Mirza Saahib [Qaadiyaani] from 'Afzal Garh' and referred to
the same revelation and promise and requested to him, Since I have no partnership with you
[Qaadiyaani], you should make supplication for my guidance and sharah-e-sadr [satisfaction
of the heart]. From [Qaadiyaan] he received a handwritten letter there from Maulvee Abdul
Kareem Saahib informing him [Raipuri] that his letter had been received and many

150

supplications have been made for him, You should keep reminding him [Qaadiyaani] about
it occasionally. Hazrat [Raipuri] used to say, In those days, a post-card would cost one paisa
and so I would occasionally post a card to Mirza Qaadiyaani requesting him to pray for me. "
Read more about this special disciple of Janaab Shah Abdur Raheem Raipuri, Janaab
Abdul Qaadir Raipuri (whose real name was Ghulam Jeelaani). On page 62 of his book,
Abul Hasan Nadvi Saahib writes: "He [Raipuri Saahib] went to meet Mirza Qaadiyaani in
Qaadiyaan and lived there for seven to eight days. While giving an account of the meeting
held by Hakeem Saahib [Noor-ud-deen Qaadiyaani], he [Abdul Qaadir Raipuri] said: I used
to watch him [Hakeem Saahib] recite, every now and then, the Qur'aanic verse, La Ilaaha
Illaa Anta Subhaanaka Innee Kuntu Minaz Zaalimeen [Chapter 21, Verse#87] with such
compassion that one felt drawn towards it. I used to think, How can someone possessing
such ecstasy and nearness to Allaah deviate from the straight path? But at the same time, I
would think in my heart that if Allaah is the most Compassionate and the most Merciful and
He undoubtedly is, then He cannot leave the bondsman of Allaah, whom I had seen, in deviation. During this journey, he [Abdul Qaadir Raipuri] also met Mirza Saahib [Qaadiyaani]
and he [Abdul Qaadir Raipuri] used to say, I would also say my prayers behind this Imaam
[Qaadiyaani] and would also read Salaat separately. "
The author of Johannesburg to Bareilly and all the Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis should read the words of a published book from Egypt, Faiez-ul-Baari (A
Summary of Bukhaari), from the expenses of Jamiyatul Ulamaa, Transvaal, South Africa and
the author should give the command of Shareeat of their own famous, Imaam-e-Kabeer (The
Biggest Leader), Janaab Anwar Shaah Khashmiri. He writes:
In my opinion, the research is that there are distorting words also in the Quraan.
This modification has either been done deliberately by the people or has been done due to
some misconception.
(Faiez-ul-Baari, page 395, vol 3, printed in Egypt)

Can the Deobandi Wahaabi Mullaas who accept modification in the Holy Quraan be
considered any less in infidelity than the Qaadiyaanis and Raafizis? (*)

__________________________
(* ) Make it clear that the verdict of being an infidel and apostate for this statement of infidelity of Anwar Shaah Khashmiri Saahib has been given by many scholars of Deoband and has
been preserved with me. (Kaukab, Ghufira Lahu)

This servant of the Ahle Sunnat is presenting to his readers more writings. While
reserving my own right of comments and opinion, I would request the readers to please, let
me know their honest opinion and that they should decide for themselves, making Almighty
as the witness with justice and equity, what the reality of this Deobandi Wahaabi-ism is.
I would like to tell this to my readers that they should consider these statements as a
first installment. In Shaa Allaah, I will present more similar statements of the Qaadiyaanis and
Deobandi Wahaabis in my next book. So that you will be able to easily recognize the true
faces of these hypocrites and save yourselves from these religious thieves. Almighty Allaah
may save us from them and their wickedness!

Writings of the

The writings of the

Qaadiyaanis

Deobandi Wahaabis

"Allaah is One and Muhammad


(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is His Prophet
and he is the Last Prophet and is greater
than everyone. After him, there is no
Prophet but only someone on whom the
cloak of Muhammadiyat has been bestowed
evidently. Because a slave is not separate
from his Master, nor a branch from its root.
Thus, he who has dissolved himself totally
in his Master receives the title of a Prophet
from Allaah and this cannot be called as
interfering with the Finality of
Prophethood.

"The general public assumes


that the finality of the Prophethood of the
Prophet Salam means that his time came
after the earlier Prophets and so he is the
last Prophet But it will be clear to people
with perception that, by itself, there is no
excellence in being attached to an earlier or
later period. Then while praising to say,
Wa Laakin Rasoolal Laahi Wa
Khaataman-Nabiyyeen, how can this be
considered correct in the situation for
raising the status of praise?"

(Kishtie Nooh, by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad


Qaadiyaani, p. 33, printed by Ziyaa ul Islaam Qaadiyaan,
1902 AD)

"Such Prophets can also come


who would be as a shadow of the Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) The coming of
such Prophets makes no difference to his
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) being the Last
Prophet."

Suppose there is a Prophet in


his era, somewhere, even then, the Finality
of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
will be established as usual.
Rather, even if a Prophet was
born after the period of the Prophet of
Allaah (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), even
then, there will be no difference to
Khaatamiyat-e-Muhammadi (The Finality of
Muhammad).

_________________________________
(*) On page 47 of this book, readers have already noticed the titles used by the religious
master of the Deobandi Wahaabi and the ideological base of the Tableeghi group, Ashraf Ali Thanvi
Saahib. The readers have also read the words written for his teacher, Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi
Saahib, in the writings of Thanvi, where he writes like so: Yaa Saiyyidee Lil Laahi Shai'an Anahu
(O my leader [Gangohi], for Allaahs sake give me something). If the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat use
the same words for Saiyyidina Shaiekh Abdul Qaadir Jeelaani (Allaah be pleased with him) then the
machine gun of verdicts of infidelity start firing. And according to the book Tazkiratur Rasheed, the
same titles are present in the writings of Thanvi Saahib for Gangohi Saahib: The writing with such
titles will be an evidence for the salvationn of Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib on the Day of Judgement. It
is astonishing that, according to the verdict of Gangohi Saahib, if these words are spoken for
Saiyyidinaa Abdul Qaadir Jeelaani (Allaah be pleased with him) then they are infidelity and
prohibited. But using the same words for Gangohi is allowed and is made the certificate of
redemption and as a problem solver for the case of Ashraf Ali Thanvi. In the same book "Tazkiratur
Rasheed, p. 147, vol 2, it is stated: A worried person said to Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Saahib:
Hazrat, for Allaahs sake, please pay some attention towards me. The narrator of this story writes:
Gangohi fulfilled the need of this person by paying attention [by bestowing a gracious glance].
According to the verdict of Gangohi Saahib, using such words for Saiyyidina Ghaus-e-Azam
is infidelity and prohibited. But to use such words for Gangohi Saahib is correct; he is being
described as a problem solver and a seal of salvation.

Naatiqah Sar ba Garibaa Hai Iay Kyaa Kahiyay


(The ability of expression is speechless, what should this be called)
It should also be remembered that all Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis use the words "For God
sake." Even beggars all over the world ask for alms in the name of Allaah. What would their verdict
(fatwaa) be for this? Also keep this verse of the Quraan in front of you: Wat-Taqul-Laahal-lazee
Tasaaaaloon (Chapter # 4, verse 1). I am waiting for their reply.

(Look at the ignorance of the so-called rightly-guided scholars of Deoband as


they make yet another baseless criticism on Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him)
printed on p. 7 and p. 8 part 2, of the booklet "Johannesburg to Bareilly: (I am copying the
words of the writer exactly the same way it is written in the booklet.)
"A person saw in a dream, that Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam [Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] was arriving. When he approached closer to Rasoolullah
sallallahu alayhi wasallam [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] he asked, Huzoor where
are you going? Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam]
replied, A person has passed away therefore I am heading to participate in the
Janazah.
Apparently this dream was related to Ahmed Raza Khan. Ahmed Razaa
Khan said, Al hamdulillah!, I have led the Salaah of that blessed janaazah.
After writing this much, the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" says: "It is only
ethical that if a person after performing Salaah, should find out that his Ustaaz,
Peer or Sheikh was also present, he would regret that if only he had known before, he would have surely asked his Ustaaz to lead the prayer. On the contrary,
Ahmed Razaa Khan feels proud and says, Al-hamdulillah!, I led the Janaazah Salaah.
After writing this, the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" says: The above mentioned statement ofAhmed Razaa Khan is an open insult to the high anpersonality
of the Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam].
Dear readers, you have read the present writing of the author of "Johannesburg to
Bareilly" and also his comments on this statement. Look more closely at this statement. Is it
proved by any words present here that the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) had
attended that funeral prayer? Or do the words of Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him)
prove that he did the Imaamat (the leading of the Salaat) of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam)? Definitely, the complete statement and the words of Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah
have mercy on him) proves no such thing. Hence, the entire criticism has made itself invalid.
Just ponder, the dream is being seen by somebody else and after the dream has been
fully described Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) says, It was me who led the
funeral prayers. From this how can the meaning be derived that the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) had also performed that funeral prayer or that Alaa Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on
him) did the Imaamat of (led the prayers read by) the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)

159

(Allaah forbid)? Undoubtedly, this is an allegation on Alaa Hazrat (Allaah be pleased with him).
The truth concerning the dream and the statement of Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah be pleased with
him) is that the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), due to his graciousness and kindness,
on the death of this true devotee, came to bestow favor to his real devotee and watch the
funeral of his devotee. (*)
When Alaa Hazrat (Allaah be pleased with him) came to know that this person was such a
favorite in the court of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), such that the Holy Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), himself, came to favor him then whatever Alaa Hazrat (Allaah be
pleased with him) said delightfully, it explains that The honor of leading the funeral prayer of
this fortunate person had come to me. The reason for giving a wrong interpretation to the
sentence of Alaa Hazrat (Allaah be pleased with him) is nothing else besides their jealousy and
hostility against Alaa Hazrat (Allaah be pleased with him).
Those who have given abuse, by placing great accusations on Imaam of Ahle Sunnat
Alaa Hazrat Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah be pleased with him), the disrespectful author of
"Johannesburg to Bareilly" and the followers of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism, they should see their
own ugly faces in the mirror. A scholar of the Deobandis, Marghoob Ahmad Saahib Laajpuri,
on page 326 of the book "Shaiekh-ul-Islaam Number, writes about their "Shaiekh-ul-Islaam,
Janaab Husaien Ahmad Madni. He says:

"As it was Jumu'ah, a huge crowd of worshippers had gathered in Jaame Masjid
[Central]. The worshippers requested this servant [Marghoob Ahmad] that he should do intercession to the Holy Prophet Ibraaheem Khaleel-ul-Laah (Salutation on him), that he [Hazrat
Ibraaheem Khaleel-ul-Laah (Salutation on him)] should say to Maulana [Husaien Ahmad] to lead
the Friday prayers. This faqeer [Marghoob Ahmad] showed some courage and said so to
Hazrat Khaleel-ul-Laah (Salutation on him). So he ordered Maulana [Husaien Ahmad] to lead the
Friday prayers. Maulana Madni gave the sermon and led the Friday prayers. Hazrat
Ibraaheem Khaleel-ul-Laah (Salutation on him) performed the Friday prayers behind the Maulana
[Husaien Ahmad Madni]. This faqeer [Marghoob Ahmad] was also amongst the followers.
Fal Hamdu lil Laahi Alaa Zaalika Hamaadan Kaseeran kaseeraa [I am very grateful to
Allaah for this praising Him abundantly]. Hazrat Saiyyidina Ibraaheem (Salutation on him) was
old aged, and his sacred beard was white.
_____________________________
(*) It should be noted that we, the Ahle Sunnat, do not believe the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is present physically but we believe that he is present spiritually and luminously.
We believe that the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is in Madinah with his blessed living
body but, spiritually and luminously, he is in the heart of every Mu'min. His spirituality and luminosity shine forth in the entire universe.

Respected readers, the severe abusers of the Imaam of Ahle-Sunnat Alaa Hazrat
Barelvi (Allaah be pleased with him), followers of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism, do not see their own
shamelessness? They are writing clearly, with their own pens, that they had got their mullaa
be the Imaam of the Prophet by asking the Prophet themselves. Also, their shameless mullaa
had led the prayers which was read by the Prophet and made Hazrat Ibraaheem (Salutation on
him) his muqtaadi (follower in namaaz). And on this shamelessness, they are showing great
thankfulness to Allaah (Allaah forbid!).
Dhitaa'ee Tuo Dekho Zara Be Hayaa Ki
Imaamat Karay Woh Abul Anmbiyaa Ki
(Look at the daring of this shameless one
He does the Imaamat [leadership] of the Father of the Prophets)
Read further, Shaiekh Saeed Takuni says: I saw in dreams that the Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is sitting and someone told me, This is the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam). A scholar of Hindi by the name of Khaleel Ahmad has died. He has come to attend
his funeral.
(Tazkirat-tul Khaleel, p. 469 printed by Maktabah Qaasimiyah Sialkot, author Aashiq Ilaahi Meruthi)

In Asdaqur Ru'yaa (page 10, part 2, Safar edition 1355AH), it is written that a person,
Mahmood Hasan of Madrasah Shaahi, Muraadabad, wrote down a dream of his and sent it to
Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib. The dream was: "Several days ago, this lowermost person saw a
dream about Huzoor [Thanvi], but could not inform [him] immediately, as I was busy in
exams. The dream is that someone is telling me at night that Maulana [Thanvi] has died.
One of my associates came to me and says that he is going to inform the Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Now, as this person goes to the shrine of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam) and calls out that Maulana [Thanvi] has died, the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
rises from his holy grave immediately on hearing this news and goes to his funeral. The text
of the dream ends.
In answer to this dream Thanvi Saahib says, "The brief interpretation of the dream is
this,

161

Kashishay Keh Ishq Daarad Na Garazaaradat Badee Saa


Ba Hayaat Gar Nayaaee Ba Janaazah Khuwaahi Aamad
[The attraction of love wont leave you unmoved should you not come to me when I
am alive
You will definitely come to my funeral]
Would the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" like to tell us, who led the funeral
prayer of Khaleel Ahmad or Ashraf Ali Thanvi? And did the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam) attend these funeral prayers or not? If he did not then the narrators of the dream
are proven to be liars. And if the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) attended then do
the Deobandi Wahaabi scholars, who claim to have led the funeral prayers, become
disrespectful and shameless by being the Imaam (leader) of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam) and by making the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) their " muqtaadi
(follower) or not? I will reserve further comment until I receive an answer from the author of
"Johannesburg to Bareilly.
In Asdaqur Ru'yaa, part 2, p. 23 and in Al-Noor for the month of Jamadiy-yul-Awwal,
1355 AH, read the dream written in this book, Dream as well:
This dream was seen: there is a masjid situated on a high platform and rows are being
made for Friday prayers and this lowest person, [Shahaab-ud-Deen; the writer] is in the
courtyard of the masjid. Someone said, This is the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). The
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) was on the left side of this humble person [the writer].
This humble person shook hands with the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and then this
humble person spread his scarf for the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). During this time a
quarrel started between two people in the courtyard of the masjid. The Prophet's (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) attention was drawn towards it. The holy clothes of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) were all white but this humble person did not remember his sacred features.
And in this Masjid, you, respected sir [Thanvi] were leading the Jumu'ah prayers and the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) held the hands of this humble person and pushed me to
the front row. Due to this dream, such happiness was felt during the whole day that I had no
words to describe this kind of indescribable pleasure. [Shahaab-ud-Deen, Kashmiri Gate,
Dehli] "
Thanvi Saahib, in his own magazine Al-Noor, had printed this dream himself. Now
read this: the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly," who said that doing the Imaamat
(leadership) of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is an open shamelessness, according to
him, read a clear exhibition of shamelessness of Thanvi Saahib. In this dream, Thanvi Saahib

162

was being the Imaam of (Allaah Forbid) the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Also, the man
who saw the dream, Shahaab-ud-Deen, thought it beneath his dignity to stand next to the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and, therefore, found happiness only after moving to the
front row for which he could not even find words to describe his happiness. Now, the author
of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" should realize that, in the dream seen by the devotee of Alaa
Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah be pleased with him), no such thing was mentioned such as Alaa Hazrat
Barelvi (Allaah be pleased with him) was being an Imaam of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam). But in all of the above mentioned dreams of the Deobandi Wahaabis, the Deobandi
mullaas are clearly shown as being the Imaams of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
and other Prophets (Salutations on them). Even after this, do the Deobandi Wahaabis have any
doubt in their shamelessness and the shamelessness of their elders? It should be clear that the
Hakeem-ul-Ummat of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism had printed these dreams with obvious pride.
Meaning, they have pride in their own shamelessness and insolence. May the Merciful
Allaah protect us from them!


Jou Karayn Tanqees-e-Shaan-e-Shaah-e-Deen
Lanat tul-Laahi Alaiehim Ajmaeen
(Those who reduce the grandeur of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
Curse of Allaah be on all them)
No doubt, this is the punishment of Almighty Allaah for these Deobandi Wahaabis in
this world for abusing the beloved people of Almighty Allaah: those false statements and
actions which they associate with true Muslims are also proven false by the pens and tongues
of the Deobandi Wahaabis themselves. And therefore, due to this, they are proven as
immense liars with their own statements. Even after this, if these Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis do not truly repent then only severe wrath and devastation will be their share in
this world and hereafter.
Dear readers, if I were to write a detailed description in clear words concerning
the amount of disrespect the senior and the junior scholars of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis
have done of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), the Companions of the Prophet

163

(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), the

sacred Progeny of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), the


holy Wives of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and the Friends of Allaah (Allaah
have mercy on them) then you will surely say that there is no difference between the rejected, accursed author of Sataanic Verses, Rushdie, and the writings of the scholars of the Deobandi
Wahaabis. Sadly, these Deobandi Wahaabis have written hundreds of dreams in their books
which are a clear insult and disrespectful to the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and
they are proud of these dreams. And they preach and publish their books which are filled
with abuse and insolence for Prophethood. They spend their lives describing the greatness of
those scholars of Deoband, who have insulted and abused the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam) to a great extent. These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars do not think of
removing their evil. They do not see their own malicious sins. Instead, they keep changing
the correct statements of true devotees of the Prophet, the true scholars of Ahle Sunnat. It is a
famous saying, If you will spit at the moon, nothing will happen to the moon. Instead the
spit will fall back on the face of the person who has spat. He who abuses a pious person, he,
himself, gets shamed and humiliated. These Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, by these habits
of theirs, are collecting disgrace for themselves. It is my plea to Almighty Allaah that He save
us true believers, Sunni Barelvi Muslims, from the wickedness of all these Deobandi Wahaabi
Tableeghis and all wrong sects as well as their scholars, followers and their evil. And may
He keep us steadfast on the right path of Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat and safely end our lives
like so.
Under the heading "One Razakhani Says", the following verse appears on
page 22 of part 2 of "Johannesburg to Bareilly:

Nakirayn aakar marqad me jo poochenge too kis kaa he?


Adab se sar jhookaa kar loonga naam Ahmed Raza Khan kaa.
Translation: When Munkar and Nakeer will arrive in the grave to ask me to whom do you
belong?
With respect, lowering my head, shall I take the name of Ahmed Raza Khan.

The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" says: "He does not say the servant of

164

Allaah.(*) Neither does he say an Ummati of Rasoolullah Sallallahu alayhi


wasallam [Sallal LaahuAlaiehi Wa Sallam]. He claims to be a Razakhani of Ahmed
Raza Khan.
For using the words "Razaa Khani," they should be given such an answer which would
make them grind their teeth in frustration.(**) Anyhow, such tone and words only fit the Deo
Kay Bandou (the servant of devils). View the answer to this, taken from Ashraf Ali Thanvi
Saahib.
On page 25, vol. 2 of Al Ifaazaatul Yaumiyah (Al-Noor, for the month of Rabee ul
Awwal, 1355 AH, he says:
"A washerman died. After his burial, the Munkar-Nakeer [the angels who ask questions
in the grave] came to him and asked, Who is your Rabb?, What is your religion? and Who
is this person?. In reply he said, I do not know anything. I am a washerman of Ghaus-eA'zam (Allaah have mercy on him) In fact, his reply reflects his Ieemaan in brief, I have the same
belief as he [Ghaus-e-A'zam] has. Whoever his Allaah is, He is also my Allaah. Whatever his
religion is, it is also my religion. For this reply only, the washerman was granted salvation.
What does the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" now say about his own chief,
Ashraf Ali Thanvi? Their own Thanvi Saahib who has given an authentic answer to his
criticism?
See the second answer of the teacher of Thanvi Saahib and a very renowned scholar of
the Deobandis (Janaab Mahmood-ul-Hasan). He says:

_____________________________
(*)It should be noted that instead of a worshipper, he takes the word bandah to mean a
"servant of Allaah. If they accept the meaning of bandah to mean a servant then why do they
object when a person says Nabee Ka Banda? As it would only mean: a servant of Nabee.
(**)Janaab Shah Ismaaeel Dehlvi is a Imaam of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism in the subcontinent.
If the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis are called Ismaaeelis, due to his association, then they
should not feel bad at all.

(Kulliyaat-e-Shaiekh-ul-Hind, p. 17, written Mahmoodiyah, Lahore)

Would the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" inform me how it will be profitable to


take the names of Gangohi and Naanotvi and to hold their shirts? I will be waiting for a
reply.
On page 19 of part 2 of the booklet "Johannesburg to Bareilly, the author quotes
a passage from the book Siraat-e-Mustaqeem of his Imaam, Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti, gives
an explanation for it and tries to prove this filthy statement to be excellent by using sufistic
terminology. Just see the original statement and the reply to it.
The author of Taqweeyatul-Ieemaan Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti writes, on page
86, in his book Siraat-e-Mustaqeem (under the heading The Third Part About the Things
that Breech Worship in Detail and the Way to Cure Them):


....

166

Meaning: "Some evil take superiority over other evils. According to the requirements
[during salaat], instead of the temptation of zina [doing adultery], it is better to think of doing
intercourse with ones own wife. And the diversion of thought toward the spiritual guide or
any other holy men like him, even if he is the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), is worse
than being drowned in the thought of an ox or an ass. Because the remembrance of these
[holy men] come with a lot of respect and admiration and is permanent in the heart of the
man. Contrary to the thought of an ox or an ass, it is neither so interesting nor so respectful
but, in fact, it [such thought] is despicable and disgraceful. And by this respect and reverence
for others [beside Allaah] during salaat, which is viewed with attention and affection, it pulls
towards polytheism.
(printed by Mujtabaaee Press, Delhi 1308 AH)

Pay attention to this filthy writing: The thought that, instead of the temptation of zina
[adultery], it is better to think of doing intercourse with ones own wife; but the diversion of
thought only going towards the Holy people and the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
is exceptionally worse than to be drowned in the thought of an ox or an ass. In this statement, what a worst disrespect is shown for the religious men and the Holy Prophet (Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)! Allaah forbid.
The thought of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has been called far worse
than being immersed in the thought of an ox or an ass because the thought of Holy Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) comes with respect and during Salaat, according to them, the
respect of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) pulls towards polytheism. Therefore,
these words of the statement should be kept in front: Khayaal Aa Baa Tazeem Wa Ijlaal. In
these words Khayaal Aa means that their thought comes with respect and honor. And
there is no respect in the thought of an ox or an ass but there is disgrace, due to which it is not
so bad. Now the question is: how will the Salaat of Ismaaeel Dehlvi and his followers,
Ismaaeels and Wahaabis, be performed? Because it is obligatory to recite the Holy Qur'aan
in Salaat and, if such verses or chapter is read which describes praises and the respect of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) or his blessed name, then his thought will surely
come, especially during At-tahiyyaat (Qadah, sitting after Sajdah) in which salutations are done
with intention and willingly to the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). The testimony is
given of his (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) Prophethood and durood shareef is recited for him (Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and for his progeny. The thought of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam) definitely comes at that time. How can this be possible that salutation is sent to the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), testimony is given of his Prophethood, durood shareef

167

is recited for him (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), but the thought of him
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) does not come in the heart?
Now, this thought can only be of two kinds. It will come either with respect or with
hatred. If this thought comes with respect then it pulls towards polytheism and then how
will the Salaat be performed? And if it comes with hatred, it will be infidelity and then how
could this be Salaat? (Because undoubted the hatred of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam) is definitely infidelity.)
Now, to save ourselves from polytheism and infidelity, the third alternative is that Attahiyyaat is not read but the difficulty is in this situation is that Salaat would again not be
performed. So now, tell me how the Salaat of these Deobandi Wahaabis will be performed?
Surely, even if they say At-Tahiyyaat, then also, their Salaat will not be performed and if they
do not say it then there will also be no Salaat. And when their own Salaat is not valid, how
will the Salaat of any other person who performs Salaat behind them be validated?
Now the conclusion, according to this statement of Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti, is that
the Salaat of any Deobandi Wahaabis will not be performed. Yes, this can happen for not
reading At-Tahiyyaat and these Deobandi Wahaabis might be saved from infidelity and
polytheism, regardless of whether their Salaat is performed or not. (Laa Haula Walaa
Quwwata Illaa Bil Laahil Aliyyil Azeem). Undoubtedly, this is the punishment for
disrespecting the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) that these people are even
deprived of Salaat.
Now look at the opposite aspect.
Deobandi scholar, Abdul Maajid Daryabadi, in one of his letters to Ashraf Ali Thanvi
Saahib writes: "For a long time I have been afflicted by the disease of not being attentive
during Salaat. But sometimes, I have undergone this experience during Salaat when I suppose, instead of myself, you [Thanvi[ is performing Salaat then for that time my heart is
attentive in Salaat. But the problem is that even this imagination does not last long. Anyhow,
if this action of mine is commendable, please confirm. Otherwise, I will be more careful in
the future.
To this, (Thanvi Saahib) replied, It is commendable, when it is not disclosed to
others or otherwise it is a deadly poison."
(Hakeem-ul-Ummat, pp. 63 and 64)

On page 84 of "Ashraf-ul-uloom" for the month of Ramadaan, 1355 AH, (With the title of
Al Kalaam-ul-Hasan printed by Kutub Khaanah Imdaad ul Ghurabaa, Sahaaranpur) it is

168

mentioned, Some person wrote a letter to [Thanvi} stating, I am attentive during Salaat if I
picture your face, and Thanvi replied, It is permitted.
Dear readers! the elderly Imaam of the Deobandi Wahaabis, Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti, says: The diversion of thought towards the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) during
Salaat is considered a worst evil, and the deputy to the same Qaatil (the one who is murdered) [Ismaaeel Dehlvi], Thanvi Saahib is declaring that to bring his thought or to keep
thinking about him in Salaat is highly commendable and permissible. Now, the authors of
"Johannesburg to Bareilly" should tell us that if the thought of Thanvi Saahib comes during
Salaat with respect, according to the verdict of their Imaam Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti, the
Salaat will not be performed. Therefore, just as the thought of an ox or an ass, only the
thought of Thanvi Saahib is permitted.
What do the scholars of Deoband say about this: the thought of Thanvi Saahib with
disrespect is correct? If their reply is, "No, it is not right at all, then they should accept that
the statement made by their Imaam Ismaaeel Dehlvi Baalakoti is wrong and infidelity. And
if they will consider their own Ismaaeel Dehlvi Saahib Baalakoti as correct, what is their
verdict about Thanvi Saahib?
I will reserve the right of further commenting on the above quoted writings of Ashraf
Ali Thanvi Saahib, in reference to Abdul Maajid Daryabadi and Ashraf-ul uloom, until I receive a reply from the scholars of Deoband.
Dear readers, look at another black deed of the author of "Johannesburg to
Bareilly. On page 11 of part 2, he translates the Quraanic verse: Wa Maa Arsalnaaka Illa
Rahmatal lil-'Aalameen, (Chapter 21, verse 107) as this:
Wamaaarsalnaaka illa rahmatal-lil-Aalameen.
"And We sent thee not save as a mercy for the peoples."
Is this not oppression? Instead of correctly translating the words of the Holy Qur'aan,
they are printing wrong translation. If it is not tampering the Holy Qur'aan then what is it?
This is called maliciousness."Aalameen" (correct translation being worlds) is being
translated as "peoples. Now, this can mean only two things. Firstly, that these Deobandi
Wahaabis are completely devoid of knowledge and secondly, the Deobandi Wahaabi
Scholars are altering the Qur'aan. Till they call themselves "scholars", they cannot deny their
own knowledge. Therefore, it is obvious they are simply changing the Qur'aan. May Allaah
keep us in His protection from such wicked people!

169

Whatever the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" has written on page 11 and 12 of


part 2 of the booklets, for the clarification of the writing of Gangohi (May only that happen to him
which he deserves), with it our criticism on Gangohi has received a stronger validated point. This
author was trying to protect his Gangohi by explainations, but he (Gangohi) has drowned
himself and, along with himself, he has also drowned the author of Johannesburg to
Bareilly.
The readers should see below the original writing of Gangohi Saahib's and its reply.
Gangohi says:
The word Rahmatul-lil-Aalameen [Mercy Unto the Worlds] is not an exclusive
attribute of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), but other Friends of Allaah, Prophets and
Ulamaa-e-Rabbaaniyeen [Divine Scholars] are also a cause of Rahmatul-lil-Aalameen [Mercy
Unto the Worlds], even though the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is the superior to all of
them. Therefore, it is permissible if these words are said for someone else by way of
interpretation, from bondsman Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi.
(Fataawaa Rasheediyah, part 2, p. 9, printed by Kutub Khaanah Raheemiyah, Sunehri Masjid Dehli, Taaleefaat-eRasheediyah, p. 104)

With what clarity in this writing they have denied this attribute of Rahmatul-lilAalameen which is exclusive for the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)! Gangohi
Saahib has clearly said, It is not the special trait of only the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam). And in order to include himself in this category, Gangohi Saahib says: It is
permissible to call the Ulamaa-e-Rabbaaniyeen [Divine Scholars] as "Rahmatul-lil-Aalameen.
Everybody who has the talent of understanding statements knows fully well that there
are three parts in the above-mentioned writing of Fataawaa Rasheediyah: claim, argument
and derivation. The claim is: The word "Rahmatal-lil-Aalameen" is not the exclusive
quality of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). The argument is: But other
Friends of Allaah, Prophets and Ulamaa-e-Rabbaaniyeen [Divine Scholars] are also a cause of
mercy to the world, even though the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is the superior to all
of them." And the derivation is: Therefore, it permissible to say this for others by way of
interpretation."
This statement by Gangohi Saahib is openly announcing that " Rahmatal lil
'Aalameen " (Mercy Unto the Worlds) is not an exclusive quality of the Holy Prophet (Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) but it is permissible to also call the Ulamaa-e-Rabbaaniyeen (Divine Scholars) as Rahmatal-lil-'Aalameen. As far as interpretation is concerned, this is only a
smokescreen used by Gangohi Saahib to trap ordinary people. Although this argument is not

170

his primary aim but the main purpose of Gangohi Saahib is to discard this exclusive attribute
(of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
Now, let us ask the Deobandi Wahaabis whom they consider as the Ulamaa-eRabbaaniyeen? Are they Sunnees (Barelvis)? Or are they Ghaier Muqallid (the non conformist)
or are they Shi'as (Shiites)? It is obvious that they call Barelvis as Innovators (bidatees) and
the non-emulators (Muqallideen) and the Shi'as (Shiites) as astray and infidels. And they
(Deobandi Wahaabis) calling themselves as the rightly guided scholars and the Ulamaa-eRabbaaniyeen (Divine Scholars). So, this means that Deobandi Wahaabis should also be called
Rahmatal-lil-Aalameen but they give this interpretation the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam) is the greater Rahmatal-lil-Aalameen and the Mullaas of Deoband are a minor
Rahmatal-lil-Aalameen. Like Ismaaeel Dehlvi has written in his book, Taqweeyat-ul-leemaan,
The Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is our elder brother . (Allaah forbid)
Dear readers! You should know this very well, the biggest aim of the Deobandi
Wahaabis is to only deny and remove all the qualities of the Prophets and the Friends of
Allaah, especially the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), because until you deny the
qualities, till then, there will be no equality and similarity. Therefore, (for polytheism in
Prophethood) to be equal and like the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and to be included
in the special attribute of Rahmatal-lil-Aalameen, for this, they have said: "It is permissible to
say the word as an interpretation for others. Even though the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam) is the most excellent amongst them all. And to be the most excellent in any quality,
this proves that others can be also be included in it even if they are inferior. This writing of
Gangohi concludes that the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is the greater Rahmatal-lilAalameen and the Mullaas of Deoband are the smaller Rahmatal-lil-Aalameen. (Allaah forbid!)
When Gangohi Saahib gave this verdict, consequently Khaleel Ahmad Ambethvi said
this about him:


"

"...

"This immoral slave pleads to Khaleel Ahmad my Maljaa-o-Maawaa [shelter and


protector], Meezaab-e-Rahmatal Laahi Taa'aalaa Alal Aalameen [The Outlet of Allaahs mercy on
to all the Worlds], Ghiyaas-ul-Mureedeen [Aide of the followers], Ghaus-ul-Mustar-Shideen

171

[Succor of the Petitioners], Naa'ib-e-Rasool-e-Rabbul Aalameen [Successor to the Prophet of the


Rabb for all the Worlds], Qutb-e-Zamaanah [Pivot of the Era], Mujtahid-e-Asr-e-Daawaanah
[Spiritual Director of the Era], Hazrat Maulai-o-Murshidi [Great friend and Guide], Maulana
Maulvee Rasheed Ahmad Saahib, Daamal Laahu Zilaalal Barkaatahum Alal Aalameen, may
Allaah keep the shadows of his blessings upon all worlds." Maaazal Laah
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol 1, p. 149)

Observe in the above writing: first, Gangohi Saahib is being called "Meezaab-e-Rahmatal
Laahi Taa'aalaa Alal Aalameen [The Outlet of Allaahs Mercy on to all Worlds], and then in the
end it is said, "Daamal Laahu Zilaalal Barkaatahum Alal Aalameen [May Allaah keep the
shadows of his blessings upon all worlds]. Both these writings mean to say that he
(Gangohi) is "Rahmatal-lil-Aalameen" and "Barkaatil-Aalameen." Like there is Al-Aalameen in
the statement of Naaib-e-Rasool-e-Rabb-ul Aalameen, similarly, there is "Al-Aalameen" is both
these writings.
Every person can understand that the meaning of Ambethvi Saahib is that like how
Almighty Allaah is the Rabb of all Aalameen (all worlds), (nothing is excluded from His
Ruboobiyat) similarly, Gangohi Saahib is considered Allaah's mercy and blessings for all the
worlds. (Maaazal Laah, Allaah forbid). Even besides such statement, can these Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghi scholars be called the truthful people? They are not a "rahmat" (mercy)
but are a great "Zahmat" (misery) for the entire Islaamic world. May Allaah protect us from
their evil!
Dear readers! This servant of the Ahle-Sunnat has already mentioned that he has
so much matter on this subject that if I wanted to print all this matter, numerous books would
be printed. The summary is that I was given three parts of the booklet "Johannesburg to
Bareilly." In all these parts, the author did not even have the courage to disclose his name. If
a detailed reply to every sentence of this book is written then surely a big thick book would
be formed. Like the Deobandi Wahaabis, we do not receive support in the form of material
help or money etc. from non-Muslims. We are only the beggars of the doorway of the
Beloved of Allaah, Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). May Almighty Allaah protect us
from the aid of the non-Muslims! What I mean to say is that every person can not afford to
purchase thick books and have the spare time to read them. However, I, this servant of the
Ahle Sunnat has answered almost all the accusations and, in doing so, my main purpose has
been to defend the dignity of Prophethood and the true religion, entirely for the sake of
pleasing Allaah and his beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). It is my desire to keep on
destroying these disrespectful to the Holy Prophet Huzoor Saiyyidina Muhammad Mustafaa
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) till my last breath, with my pen and tongue. Also, to inform the

172

creations of Allaah about the nefarious conspiracies of these religious thieves so that Sunnee
Muslims are able to defend their beliefs.
The author of the booklets "Johannesburg to Bareilly" did not dare to raise any
valid criticism in all three parts against any of the books written by Imaam-e-Ahle Sunnat,
Alaa Hazrat Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him). Alaa Hazrat
(Allaah have mercy on him) has almost more than one thousand books to his credit, which are full of
pearls of knowledge and wisdom. Anyhow, these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis only due to
their prejudice, stubbornness, dishonesty and tendency to ignore reality, had the chance to
raise unrealistic and baseless criticism, on only those writings which were written by others
about Imaam-e-Ahle-Sunnat, Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him). On the other hand,
we, the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat (of the Naajiyah group) only raise valid criticism on the
original writings of senior scholars of the Deobandi Wahaabis, who are the foundation of
Deobandi Wahaabi-ism, and on those books which these people probably consider more dear
than the Holy Qur'aan and the Ahaadees, while they are engaged throughout their lives with
all their energies in propagating and distributing the wrong writings of infidelity contained
in these books.
Dear readers! For your information I am presenting to you a few quotes from the
books of the scholars of Deoband. (*)
Only so that you can know very well what the condition of the mentality and taste of
these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis are, concerning those who use abusive words for the
Beloved of Allaah. These people call themselves bound to Shareeat and Sunnah and try to
prove that, besides them, all true Muslim are wrong.
Unlike the Deobandi Wahaabis, who are in the habit of distorting original writings, I
am presenting their writings precisely as they are, without making any changes in them. I
am not making any comments or clarification on them. The readers will know, for
themselves, the reality of the scholars of Deoband who harbor such thoughts and what the
realities of these Deobandi Wahaabi-isms are.
Look at a footnote on page 96 of "Tazkirah Mashaa'ikh-e-Deoband (printed by
Muhammad Saeed and Sons, Tajiraan-e-Kutub, Karachi): "Ammi Bi was the maternal
grandmother of Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Yahya Saahib and Hazrat Maulana

Muhammad Ilyaas Saahib. She was an extremely religious and pious lady. At the time of her
death, such an unusual fragrance was coming from her clothes, as the feces of Ammi Bi had
stained her clothes. It had such odor that till today no one has smelled such a fragrance.
Aashiq Ilaiehi Meruthi on page 46, vol 1, of "Tazkiratur Rasheed" and the
renowned Aalim of Deoband, Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib, on page 7 of "Imdaad-ul
Mushtaaq" (printed by Thaanah Bhavan), while describing the excellence of their spiritual
guide and their teacher writes:
"One day Alaa Hazrat (*) [Haaji Imdaad-ul Laah Saahib] dreamt his [Shia] sister-inlaw was cooking food for his guests. Meanwhile the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) came
and said to his sister-in-law, Get up, you are not worthy of cooking food for the guest of
Imdaad-ul Laah. His guests are scholars. I will cook food for his guests.
The Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has been called a cook (Maaazal Laah,
Allaah forbid) by the scholars of Deoband and on the top of this list is Janaab Rasheed
Ahmad Gangohi. Now, just see the state of Gangohi Saahib. Gangohi Saahib says, "Once I
saw in a dream that Maulvee Muhammad Qaasim Saahib [Naanotvi] is in the form of a bride
and my nikaah (wedding) is with him. So the way husband and wife are mutually benefited
from each other, in the same way I was benefitted from him and he was from me. He praised
me before Hazrat (Allaah have mercy on him) and made me his disciple. I made recommendation to
Hazrat and got him [Muhammad Qaasim] accepted as his disciple. Hakeem Muhammad
Siddeeq Saahib Kandhalvi remarked, Ar Rijaalu Qawwaamoona 'Alan Nisaa [Men are the
guardians of women]. He [Gangohi Saahib] replied, Yes, after all I do look after his
[Muhammad Qaasim Naanotvis] children.
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol 2, p. 289, printed Idaarah-e-Islaamiyaat, Lahore)

The Hazrat [Gangohi] declared, Almighty Allaah has made this promise with me
that He will not let wrong [words] come out by my tongue.
(Arwaah-e-Salaasah, p. 266, printed Daar-ul-Ashaaaarat, Karachi)

_____________________________________
(*) The Deobandi Wahaabis make a lot of fuss on this, Maulana Shaah Ahmad Razaa Khan
(Allaah have mercy on him) is called Alaa Hazrat and doing so is wrong. But if Thanvi Saahib calls his
own spiritual guide, Peer Haaji Imdaad-ul Laah Saahib, as Alaa Hazrat then the Deobandi Wahaabis
forget justice, equality, rules and regulations and consider everything correct for themselves.

174

Consequently, see his "truthfulness". The same Gangohi Saahib says: "Raam and
Kanahiya [religious leaders of the Hindus] were good people, but people of later generations
[after them] have made them something else."
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, volume 2, p. 287)

Furthermore, he says: "Many holy men often stay hidden and guide people to the right
path. In the same way, Baba Naanak [the religious leader of Sikhs] was also a Muslim and he
led people to the right path while staying hidden."
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol 2, p. 238)

The same Gangohi Saahib says, "Madrasah Deoband belongs to Allaah.


(Arwaah-e-Salaasah, p. 281)

On pages 383 and 384 of the same book "Arwaah-e-Salaasah", Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib
says:
"Suddenly I saw a throne descending from the skies and the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi
Wa Sallam) was sitting on it. And the four Caliphs were present on the four corners. As it
descended, it stopped very close to me in the masjid. The Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
asked one of the four Caliphs, Brother, go and call Maulana Muhammad Qaasim
[Naanotvi]. He [the Caliph] went and came back with the Maulana [Naanotvi]. The Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) asked the Maulana to show the accounts of the Madrasah
[Deoband]. He [Naanotvi] said, Hazrat here it is! and gave account of every single paisa
[smallest unit of currency]. At that moment, there was no limit to the joy and happiness of
the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). He was very pleased and said, All right, Maulana,
now allow us to leave. The Hazrat [Naanotvi] said, As you wish. After that, the throne
started ascending towards the skies and vanished from sight.
Gangohi Saahib has called the madrasah of Deoband as The Madrasah of Allaah and
Thanvi Saahib has given a description that the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is coming
down from the skies, only for checking the accounts of the madrasah. After this, see the
statement of the first headmaster of Daar-ul-uloom Deoband, Janaab Muhammad Yaqoob, concerning the students of the Daar-ul-uloom Deoband by Thanvi Saahib. Janaab Muhammad Yaqoob says:
Almighty Allaah has promised with me that any student who has studied from this
Madrasah [Deoband] will not be employed for less than ten rupees.
(p. 214, Thanvi Saahib Kay Pasandidah Waaqiaat written by Abul Hasan Azami, printed Daar-ul-Ishaaaat, Karachi)

175

Read this also, concerning the city of Deoband in the book named Al Anwar, written
by Abdul Rahmaan Kunandu about The life of Janaab Muhammad Anwar
Kashmiri (printed by Nazwatul Musanifeen, Delhi, 1978 AD). This verse is present on page 2
of Ziyaa-ur-Rahmaan Ziyaa. He writes:

"
"

Aay Khushaa Deoband Jalwah Zaar-e-Husan-e-Aalimaa
Makkah-e-Hindi Ziyaarat Ghaa-e-Arbaab-e-Dilaa
O Deoband, how good you are that you are the place of exhibiting the beauty of the scholars
Makkah of India and the place of visiting the masters of the hearts
The Madrasah of Deoband has been described as The Madrasah of Allaah. The
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has been called to check its accounts; a promise of
Allaah has been made for the employment of the students; the city of Deoband has been
called as the Makkah of India; and, besides this, the inauguration and leadership of the
Centurial, annual one hundred years celebration of the same Daar-ul-uloom was done by a
polytheist woman, an enemy of Allaah, Indira Gandhi. It is obvious the result of such
destruction and distortion would only be like this.
(Make it clear, I, this servant of the Ahle Sunnat, in my book Deoband to Bareilly,
have already mentioned this statement spread by Deobandis that, The Holy Prophet (Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is learning the Urdu language from the scholars of Deoband. And I
have also mentioned that according to the Imaam of Deobandi Wahaabis, Ismaaeel Dehlvi
Baalakoti, "The Prophet has no authority," this also, "The Prophet has no knowledge of what
is happening even on the other side of a wall," and this as well, "The Prophet has mingled in
dust after his death," and "The Prophet has no knowledge of his own end. Maaazal Laah
(Allaah forbid)!
When Aashiq Ilaiehi Meruthi was writing the biography of Janaab Rasheed
Ahmad Gangohi, a person saw in a dream that, "The biography of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is being written and Gangohi, himself, appeared in his dream to ask the
biographer, Are you writing my biography? "

176

(Tazkiratul Rasheed, p. 8, vol-1)

On pages 127 and 152 of the same book, people who come to Gangohi Saahib and
engage in "Zikr" have been called as "Ahle Suffah. (Readers know it very well that a special
group of the companions of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) are called "Ashaab-eSuffah or Ahle Suffah.)
On page 242, vol 2 of the same book it is stated:
"Once he [Gangohi] said: In Saharanpur, many prostitutes were the disciples of
Zaamin Ali Jalaalabadi. Once he was staying in the house of a certain prostitute in
Saharanpur. All the disciples came to see their own Miyaan Saahib but one prostitute did not
come. Miyaan Saahib inquired, Why did that particular prostitute not come? The
prostitutes replied that they had repeatedly asked her to come along to pay a visit to Miyaan
Saahib but she said, I am very sinful and disgraced. Which face should I show to Miyaan
Saahib; I am not worthy of visiting him. Miyaan Saahib insisted, No, you must bring her to
me. Therefore, some of the prostitutes went and brought her. When she came in front of
Miyaan Saahib, he asked her, Lady, why did you not come? She replied, Hazrat due to my
disgrace, I was ashamed to come in front of you. Miyaan Saahib said, Lady, why should you
be ashamed? Who is the doer and who is getting done, he is he, himself. [In this sentence
Miyaan Saahib has referred Who and He as Allaah.] The prostitute became furious after
hearing this and said in rage, Laa Haula Wa laa Quwwata. Even though I am disgraced
and sinful, yet I would not like to even urinate on the face of such a peer [spiritual guide].
Miyaan Saahib bowed his head in shame and she stormed out.
On this same page, it is written that concerning the same Zaamin Ali Jalaalabadi,
Gangohi Saahib has said with a smile, "Zaamin Ali Jalaalabadi was only immersed in Tawheed
[the Oneness of Allaah].
Also see this, "Once during a speech to a crowded gathering, a young villager asked
him without any inhibition, Hazrat Jee, what does the private part of a woman looks like? O
my, how important is education; all the people present there bowed their heads down [with
shame] but he [Gangohi] was not annoyed in the least. Rather, [he] said spontaneously, Like
the grain of wheat.
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol. 2, p. 100)

Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Saahib claimed that the pious Companions (Sahaabah) (Allaah
have mercy on them) of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) were on Gangohi's way.

177

Therefore, "Once, addressing a huge gathering he [Gangohi Saahib] said these words:
Brothers, I say one thing and O Allaah, You know this very well why I say so that this
way which is mine, the Companions of the Prophet exactly had the same way. Stay steadfast
on it and do not let it go from the hands. "
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol. 2, p. 34)

Concerning these words, Aashiq Ilaahee Meruthi Saahib says the mentioned words,
"This saying of Gangohi Saahib was not due to pride but he had the desire to express the
truth.
The Deobandi Wahaabis, who think the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
as only human and common man like themselves, they do not consider their own Rasheed
Ahmad Gangohi and other elders as human. Just look at this writing:
"Every man of insight and experience, who visited him [Gangohi] during any hour of
the day became so convinced and impressed by his excellent character that he would
spontaneously recite this Qur'aanic verse, Ma Haazza Basharaa, In Haazza Illaa Malakun
Kareem. (He is absolutely not a human being, he is a respected angel.)
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol. 2, p. 60)

(Readers might know this above Quraanic verse is about Hazrat Yoosuf (Salutations on
him) and what its real story is.)
Also see this, "Maulana Rafee'-ud-Deen would say that, I have been visiting Maulana
Naanotvi [Muhammad Qaasim] for twenty-five years and I never went there without doing
my wuzu [ablution]. I found his status higher than humanity. That person [Naanotvi] was an
angel nearest to Allaah who had manifested amongst the humans.
(Arwaah-e-Salaasah, p. 220)

Now look at the state of this Naanotvi Saahib who is considered higher than
humanity, He would not let a man who was fasting to keep his fast. Rather, he would give
the glad tidings of earning rewards on breaking the fast.
On pages 298 and 299 of this same book, "Arwaah-e-Salaasah, it is written that Hazrat
Maulana Rafi-ud-Deen Saahib used to say, I have never done anything against the saying of
Hazrat Naanotvi. One day, I [Rafi-ud-Deen] visited him [Naanotvi] in the masjid of Chhattah
[name of place]. Hazrat [Naanotvi] was sitting inside the vicinity of the masjid and eating
roasted grams. He asked me [Rafi-ud-Deen], Come Maulana, eat. I [Rafi-ud-Deen] replied,

178

Hazrat, I am fasting. After waiting for some time, he [Naanotvi] asked me again, Come
Maulana, eat. At this, I started eating without any hesitation, even though the Asr prayers
had passed and the time for iftaar [breaking the fast] was [still] drawing near. Hazrat
[Naanotvi] told me, Almighty Allaah will give you more rewards for doing this then the
amount [the reward] would be for keeping the fast. Hence, the satisfaction and the pleasure I
felt after breaking the fast [before iftaar time] excelled the pleasure I had ever experienced
during fasting.
Also look at the meaning of Being above the status of humanity. It is written in
"Arwaah-e-Salaasah", compiled by Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib on p. 221: Maulana Ahmad
Hasan Saahib was a great logician and did not consider anyone [else] similar to him in this
field. One day, there was a lecture by the Hazrat Naanotvi and by chance, he [Ahmad
Hasan] was sitting in front of him. So he [Ahmad Hasan] became his [Naanotvis] focus of
address and in the address of Naanotvi Saahib the rejection of issues of certain things perceived by intellect started. After the discourse, Ahmad Hasan exclaimed, Allaahu-Akbar
[Allaah is the Greatest]. These things [which Naanotvi Saahib have said], they cannot be the
product of any human mind. These are the sayings of only Allaah.
On page 246 of this same book "Arwaah-e-Salaasah" it is written, "Maulana [Naanotvi]
used to laugh and talk with children and with Jalaal-ud-Deen, the son of Maulana
Muhammad Yaqoob Saahib, who was then a very small child; he would make fun with him.
Sometimes, he would take off his cap and sometimes, open his naara [string of trouser].
Readers should pay great attention to the following passage because in this the
Deobandi Wahaabi scholar, Abdur Razzaaq Malihabadi, has called his Husaien Ahmad
Madni, metaphorically, as Allaah. (It should be noted that this servant of the Ahle Sunnat
will reserve his right to give an opinion and comment on these writings.)
In "Shaiekh-ul-Islaam Number, of Al Jamiyatul Dehli, Abdur Razzaaq Malihabaadi
writes: "Have you Deobandi Wahaabis ever seen Allaah walking in your lanes and by-lanes?
Have you ever seen Allaah behaving in humility with mortal men after leaving His mighty
glorious heavens? Have you ever imagined that Rabb-ul-Aalameen, putting aside His pride,
would come and live in your homes? Will talk to you? Will look after you. No, not at all.
This has never happened and never will happen. Then am I mad? Am [I] senseless that I am
exaggerating? No, brothers, this is not the case. I am neither mad nor senseless. Whatever I
am saying is true; it is the Truth. But it is only a matter of understanding. It is only the
difference between reality and metaphor. It is a matter of love and, in love, one has to only
make use of allusions and symbols. Love cannot tolerate naked truth. Love can thrive only
on hidden, covered, and unrevealed things.

179

(p. 113, Pakistan Edition, printed by Maktabah-e-Madinah, Gujarawala)

In the Jamadeen, 1354 AH issue of Ashraf-ul uloom, Saharanpur, it is written on


page 32: Someone questioned Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib about Shah Ishaaq Saahib. Thanvi
Saahib replied, At the moment, I am discussing human beings. When the discussion of
angels will begin then with them, question me about him [Shah Ishaaq]. And on page 63 of
"Arwaah-e-Salaasah", it is said concerning Maulana Ishaaq Saahib, "Almighty Allaah has sent
an angel in the form of a man.
On page 121 of "Arwaah-e-Salaasah, Saiyyid Ahmad Barelvi Saahib says, "In
whichever direction I go, even the trees and the animals of that area recognize me and make
salutation to me."
Moreover look at this, "Is this [Husaien Ahmad Madni] a man or an angel? No, no my
stubborn heart was not prepared to even accept this: he was the Fountainhead of the Divine
light, an angel."
(Nazr-e-Aqeedat, p. 5)

Would the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" tell us, If Husaien Ahmad Madni was
neither a man nor an angel then what was he? They should tell us, as well, who is called the
Fountainhead of the Divine light.
Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis should look at this description of their Naanotvi
Saahib by Thanvi Saahib. In "Tahzeerun Naas", Naanotvi Saahib has opened the door to
Prophethood and in the following passage, he is using the same words in describing his own
self which the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) has said about himself.
He said, Once Hazrat Maulana Gangohi and Maulana Naanotvi both went for Hajj-eBaiet-ul-Laah [Hajj to the House of Allaah]. While Maulana Gangohi was doing things very
orderly at every step, Maulana Naanotvi was very careless, caring little for his things, which
lay scattered here and there and did not care for anything. At that time, a group of people
came to Maulana Gangohi and said, We will also go for Hajj with you. Maulana [Gangohi]
asked them if they had any provision for travelling. They said that they will make the
journey on tawakkul [relying on Allaah]. Maulana [Gangohi] said, When we will be buying
the ticket for the ship, in front of the manager you can put the pouch of tawakkul [reliance on
Allaah]. And said [sarcastically], What a great believer of tawakkul, go do your work! Then
these people asked Hazrat Maulana Naanotvi, who gave permission.

180

Har Gulay Raa Rang o Buuay Deegarast


[Every flower has its own color and its own fragrance]
Whatever he [Naanotvi] would receive during the journey, he would give it to these
people. His other companions said, Hazrat you are giving away everything, at least keep
something for yourself. So [Naanotvi] said, Innama Anaa Qaasimun Wal Laahu Yu'tee
[Undoubtedly, Allaah is the provider and I am the distributor]. During the same journey,
Maulana Gangohi said to Naanotvi Saahib, You wander around from morning till evening.
Do you have any concern [for yourself]? So [Naanotvi] said, Hazrat when you are there,
what worry should I have?
(Arwaah-e-Salaasah, written by Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib, pp. 270 and 271)

Thanvi Saahib (in reference to Janaab Yaqoob, head master Daar-ul-uloom Deoband)
says, "Some attributes are shared by us and the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, part 7, p. 464, part 7, printed Ashraf-ul-Mutabaah, Thaanah Bhavan, December, 1941 AD)

On page 105, part 1, of "Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, the same Thanvi Saahib says, When his
spiritual guide, Haaji Imdaadul-Laah Muhaajir Makki died, Rasheed Ahmad Saahib
[Gangohi] would repeatedly refer Hazrat Haaji [Imdaad-ul-Laah] as Rahmatal-lil-Aalameen
[Mercy Unto the Worlds].
On page 398, of "Arwaah-e-Salaasah", Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib uses the same words
for Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah Saahib which the poet had written to describe the qualities of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
Thanvi Saahib says, "On this occasion, I feel like saying this quote about the combined
qualities of Hazrat [Haaji Imdaad-ul-Laah]:

Aan Cheh Khuubaa Hamaah Daarand Tu Tanhaa Daari


[You alone have all the qualities that others have jointly]
Readers know that the first line of this verse is like so:

181

Husn-e-Yoosuf Dam-e-Ieesaa Yad-e-Baizaa Daari


The beauty of Yoosuf and the holy breath of Ieesaa and the shining hand of Moosaa (Salutation on them)
And this verse is said in praise of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). In
Tazkiratul Mashaaikh-e-Deoband, on page 139, the same complete verse is written in praise
of Gangohi Saahib by Muftee Azeez-ur-Rahman.
On page 377 of this same book, Arwaah-e-Salaasah, it is said: "Haaji [Imdaad-ul Laah]
Saahib was the Alee ul Waqt [Alee of his time] and Haqq [the Truth] is subservient to him.
On the death of Ashraf Ali Thanvi, Abdul Maajid Daryabadi on page 595 of his
book Hakeem-ul-Ummat" says: "We, the unfortunate [Deobandi Wahaabis], were not even
worthy of such bounty. It is not surprising this such great bounty [referring to Thanvi] was
withdrawn at its own time, but the surprise is that how did it stay in the midst of us for this
long?

Tu Bahaar-e-Aalame-Deegari Ze Kujaa Ba Aeen Chaman Aamadee


[You are the spring of some other World how did you come to this garden]

Up till now, we had only heard this line of the verse like so but now we have seen it,
with our own eyes, in this holy personality [of Thanvi].
This is the same Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib whom the author of "Johannesburg to
Bareilly" and the followers of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism call, "Mut-tabe'-e-Sunnat [Follower of
the Sunnat], Mujaddid-e-Millat [Reviver of the Nation], Hakeemul Ummat [Wiseman of the
Nation] and Hujjatul Laahi Fil Ard [Evidence of Allaah on Earth), and who knows what not.
How was the same so-called "Mut-tabe'-e-Sunnat [Follower of the Sunnah] Thanvi Saahib in
following the Sunnah? He, himself, says: "I would not refrain from eating anything while
standing in a doorway or while walking on any pathway. If at anytime Islaamic Government
is established, the most that will happen to me is that my testimony will not be accepted.
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, vol 4, p. 41, printed by Ashraf-ul-Mutabaah, Thaanah Bhavan)

182

He also says: "In matters of invitation or gift, I do not care much about halaal
[permitted] or haraam [prohibited] things, because I am not a muttaqi [pious person]. And so,
I only consider that verdict permitted which is permitted according to jurisprudence.
(Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, p. 369, printed by Maktabah Thanvi, Daftar-Al-Ibqaa Karachi)

See the state of this Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib. He, himself, says: "It happened one day
that my [Thanvi's] elder brother was urinating. I [Thanvi] began to urinate on his head.
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, part 4, p. 274)

The same Thanvi Saahib says: "A person belonged to Sekri [name of a town] was the
brother of my step-mother. He was a very gentle and simple man. My father had left him to
work on contract. One day during the summers, he came back from his office hungry and
thirsty. He took out his food and was busy eating it. The market was in front of the house. I
[Thanvi] caught a small puppy from the street, brought it home and put it in his plate of
lentils. Poor fellow, he left the food, stood up and did not say anything.
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, vol 4, p. 273)

The same Thanvi Saahib says: "Once I went to visit Nauchandi (a girls dance show) in
Meruth [name of a city]. My father was an employee in the house of Shaiekh Illaahi Bakhsh
Saahib. His nephew, Shaiekh Ghulaam Muhiy-ud-Deen asked me, Maulvee Saahib, how is it
to go to Nauchandi? I told him, It is permitted for someone who is about to become a leader.
Because if he will refrain someone from it, then he will be questioned, What is wrong in it
[this bad act]? So later, without any hesitation, he will describe those evil things which he
has witnessed with his own eyes. On hearing this, he [Ghulaam Muhiy-ud-Deen] burst into
laughter and said, Brother, if Maulvees even commit a sin, then they also make it Religion.
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, vol 5, p. 440)

Thanvi Saahib says, "A person was darkening his face [committing Zinaa i.e. adultery]
with a woman in a place. Coincidently, more travelers came along, they also needed room to
stay. This person [the one committing the evil] had locked the door from inside. When these
people knocked at the door, he replied from inside, Miyaan, there is no room over here, a
person is lying on another person here. {Thanvi said,] Please look, what a truthful person he
was. He did not speak lies, he gave an answer of what intelligence!
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, vol 4, p. 570)

The adherents of Deobandi-ism should also, attentively, see the following words of
their master. Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib says,

183

"The state of the belief of common people is just like that particular organ of an ass. If
it extends, it keeps on extending and when it disappears then it is not even known.
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, vol-4, p. 7, printed by Ashraful Mataabe, Thaanah Bhaavan, Magazine Al-Muballigh, #6,
vol-9, for the month of Rabee-ul-Awwal, 1357AH)

About the same Thanvi Saahib, the compiler of "Ashrafus Sawaanih" quotes the
following couplet in volume 1, page 96 of his book:

Aafaaqhaa Gar Deedah Am Mehre-butaa Warzeedah Am


Bisyaar Khuubaa Deedah Laykin Tuu Cheezay Deegari
"I have wandered through worlds and have tasted the affection of beauties
I have seen many beauties, but you are altogether a different thing.

In another place, Thanvi Saahib, himself, says: "Hazrat Haaji Saahib [Imdaad-ul-Laah]
was in an unusual state. After this sentence (in his praise), he quotes the verse, mentioned
above, of Ameer Khusrau. (Maqaalaat-e-Hikmat Wa Mujaadlaat-e Ma'dilat, p. 366, printed by Iadaarah-eTaaleefaat-e-Ashrafiyah, Lahore 1977 AD) And in Tazkiraat-ul-Mashaaikh-e-Deoband page 138, the
same verse has been quoted by Muftee Azeez-ur-Rahman for Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi. (It
should be noted that this verse was said by Hazrat Ameer Khusrau (Allaah have mercy on him) for
someone and readers would certainly know for whom he had said this.)
See the state of the filthy mind of the great leader of Deobandi-ism, Thanvi, written by
his own pen. He says:

"A virtuous person had this inspiration that Hazrat Aaishah (Allaah be pleased with her) is
coming in the house of this lowest man [Thanvi]. That person told me. Instantly, my mind
diverted to this direction that I will get a young lady.
(Risaalah Al-Imdaad, Safar, 1335 AH)

The complier of "Ashrafus Sawaanih, Khawajah Azeez-ul-Hasan, in volume 2, page 30


of this book, says: "Once, with the passion of love and ecstasy I told Hazrat-e-waalaa [Thanvi]
very reluctantly and shamefully, in a suppressed tone, I repeatedly have this disgraceful
thought in my heart. On disclosing, which I also feel very shameful and do not have the
184

courage for it. Hazrat [Thanvi] was getting up from his bedroom to go inside the masjid to
say his prayers. But he [Thanvi] said, Say it, say it. This poor person bowed his head and
said very shamefully, This thought comes again and again in my heart that I wish I was a
woman, and was in your nikaah [married to Thanvi]. On this expression of love, Hazrat
[Thanvi] felt extremely happy and laughed spontaneously and went inside the masjid saying,
This is your love. You will be rewarded. You will be rewarded, In Shaa Allaah.
The compiler of "Ashrafus Sawaanih" says: "In a letter, instead of the usual title and
reverence, I address him [Thanvi] with only this verse in a state of great love:



Jaan-e-Man Jaanaan-e-Man Sultaan-e-Man
Ae too'i Islaam-e-Man, Ieemaan-e-Man
[My beloved, my dearest beloved, my king, O you are my only Islaam and my Ieemaan]
(Ashrafus Sawaanih, vol. 2 p. 31, printed by Aadaarah-e-Taaleefaat-e-Ashrafiyah, Multan, 1985 AD)

The compiler of "Ashrafus Sawaanih" has in vol 1, page 8 of the book used the
following verse, in the preface, with the title of Tamheed at the top of his writing for Thanvi
Saahib:


"Ae Ashraf-e-Zamaanah Zamaane Madad Numaa
Dar Haa'e Bastah Raa Ba Kaleed-e-Karam Kushaa"(*)
O Ashraf of the times and guide to the world, Open up the secret doors by the key of
your kindness
_____________________
(*) (This verse had been written hundreds of years ago concerning Hazrat Makhdoom Saiyyid
Ashraf Jahaangeer Samnaani (Allaah have mercy on him). Furthermore, a verdict of the Deobandi
Wahaabis on this verse is that it is (mushrikana) polytheism. What should we say on this, as the
same verse is liked by the Deobandis for their Thanvi Saahib, {perhaps) in regard to the word
Ashraf and it has become their wazeefah (daily repetition)? Now, the Deobandis should either say
their verdict on this couplet is wrong or say their present belief and practice on this verse is wrong. I
will await their reply, Kaukab.)
185

About the abode of Thanvi Saahib, the compiler of "Ashrafus Sawaanih", on page 48 of
vol 2, says this:

Agar Firdaus Bar Rooe Zameen Ast


Hameenast-o-Hameenast-o-Hameenast
If there is a paradise on this earth, it is this, it is this, and it is this
The Imaam Ismaaeel Dehlvi of Deobandi Wahaabis says, in Taqweeyatul Ieemaan,
To respect someone due to association is polytheism. But these Deobandi Wahaabi mullaas, when they refer to their own elders in association, see how much exaggeration and
respect they like to express and yet consider it permissible. Just see their condition:
Once Janaab Ahmad Hassan Amrohvee came in the presence of Maulana [Thanvi] in
the middle of the night, he felt the need of Istinjaa [cleaning after using the toilet]. He forgot
to ask in the earlier evening. So, it was a Divine Miracle, Maulana [Thanvi] came inside
himself and inquired, Do you have any need? I [Amrohvi] said, Yes I do. Maulana [Thanvi]
said at this time, both will not be disturbed. Come inside the ladies portion and he [Thanvi]
kept water and a stone for Istinjaa [purification]. I [Amrohvi] said, This water is Aab-eZamzam [the holy water of Zam Zam], now what should I do Istinjaa with? (Allaahu Akbar,
what great manners!)
(Qasas-ul-Akaabir, p. 206, with reference to Husnul Azeez, p. 220, vol 2)

Dear readers, due to the honor of my belief, the pain and agony which is being
felt by me, a servant of Ahle Sunnat, while presenting these filthy writing, it is indescribable.
I am amazed and also dismayed to a great extent that the followers of Deobandi Wahaabiism, even after seeing these filthy and disrespectful writings of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghi
mullaas, not only call them their leaders and mentors but also consider following them and
emulating them more valuable than following the Qur'aan and the Sunnah. Every person
having wisdom and understanding will, after reading these writings, say without any doubt,
The writers of such filth are not at all worthy of being called rightly guided scholars. Rather
these people are a cause of shame and dismay to Muslims and the Islaamic world.

186

Furthermore read this:


What do these Deobandi Wahaabis, who call the Prophets (Salutation on them) and
Friends of Allaah (Allaah have mercy on them) as powerless and unaware of their own end, say
about their own Gangohi Saahib?
View this: "He [Gangohi] was certainly not a miser in expanding the eternal blessings
of the Hereafter. If he was a miser then today the number of his disciples would not have
reached in thousands.
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol-2, p. 88)

Look at the authority of Thanvi Saahib. He says: An englishman from London asked
this question, I had embraced Islaam along with my wife. We want to come to India and my
[foreigner] wife will also be with me and she will not observe pardah [veil] I [Thanvi)
wrote, It is allowed for you.
(Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, vol-6, p. 245)

The same Ashraf Ali Saahib writes about his Deobandi Scholar, Muzaffar Husaien
Kandhalvi, In Jalaalabad or Shaamili [names of cities] one Khan Saahib said, I cannot do
ablution, nor can I leave two bad habits [drinking and adultery]. He said, Read salaat even
without wuzu [abulation] and you can also drink alcohol.
(Arwaah-e-Salaasah, p. 181)

The Deobandis, who do not believe the Prophets (Salutation on them) are innocent,
however they consider every habit, even urinating and going to the toilet, of their own
Gangohi Saahib as worshipping (ibaadaat). Look at the following:
"The conclusion of this is that the habits of the People of Allaah, are without any
doubt, included in Ibaadaat [worshippings]. All the actions of these people from morning till
evening, sleeping and waking, eating and drinking, urinating and passing bowels, silence
and speech, resting and working and relaxing etc., all actions for being included in the means
of ibaadaat [worshipping] are included in obedience [of Allaah]. Since Hazrat Imaam-eRabbaani [Divine leader] Gangohi was a guide and leader of this virtuous group in his era of
this century. Due to this, his habits as being the worshipping are as clear as the sun."
(Tazkiratur Rasheed, vol-2, p. 61)

187

After Gangohi Saahib, let us also see the state of the renowned scholar of the
Deobandis, Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib. In the writings of Thanvi Saahib, an excess of things
has been said concerning sexual relationships and obscenity. See this where he, himself, says:
"Physicians and philosophers agree on this that whichever power is not used that power
gradually fades away, like impotence becomes a case when not having sex.
(Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, p. 80)

On page 668, vol 4, of "Imdaad-ul Mushtaaq", (written by Ashraf-ul Mataabe, Thaanah


Bhavan), see the following condition of the sexual inclination of Thanvi Saahib.
"A person said to me [Thanvi] that he does not find pleasure in Zikr [the Remembrance
of Allaah]. I told him, What mazaa [pleasure] is there in Zikr [the Remembrance of Allaah],
pleasure is in "mazi"[seminal discharge] which comes out at the time of teasing [touching] a
woman. Why do you roam around here looking and wondering for mazaa [pleasure] in
Zikr [the Remembrance of Allaah]?"
Look at another proof of the filthy mentality of Thanvi Saahib on p. 673 of this same
book. Who can have a better way of explaining things beside the Hakeem-ul-Ummat of the
Deobandi Wahaabis (Wiseman of the Deobandi Wahaabis)? He says:

"Hence, the real thing is revelation. And if we depend only on intelligence then a persons requirement (*) of intellect is also like so as a person who used to cohabit with his own
mother said. Someone said to him, O you filthy [person], what act is this? He said, When
my entire body was inside her, so now, what harm is there if only one part of mine goes in
her? This can also be considered intellectually.
_____________________________
( *) Meaning doing like so would be logically correct.
(**) Dear readers, perhaps, you are amazed to read the description about the lustfulness and sexual
impulse of Thanvi Saahib. But it is even a matter of greater amazement and disappointment concerning a magazine called "Al-Nasiha", published from Madrasah Arabia Islaamiyah, Azadville, South
Africa, in December 1988. It belonged to the Deobandi Wahaabis. Making its text as her basis,
Jennet Bennett, correspondent of "Herald Sunday Tribune" wrote an article on 11 th December 1988
about the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and gave it such a headline that it is difficult for
me to write. For your information, I can only say that some of the sentences used in "Al-Nasiha" were
worse than some of the sentences used by the book of the world-condemned and accursed Rushdie,
"Satanic Verses". This servant of the Ahle Sunnat, himself, went to protest the scholars of Deoband at
the headquarters of the Deobandis at Mia's Farm, and asked them to take notice of the nefarious act
of this Satanic scholar of their creed. But it is a pity the integrity of the scholars of Deoband was not
aroused at the insolence shown towards the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Instead, this
much was surely done: a poster was published against me from Mia's Farm. This servant submits
that it is not an act of a Muslim to slander anyone and I have preserved all of their documents and
records.)
188

(It should be the remembered that the way in which this "Mujaddid (Reviver) of
Deobandi Wahaabi-ism, Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib, had taught the methods and ways for
teaching shamelessness and audacity in sexual relations to the shy and respectful, both
married and unmarried women of Muslim families in his notorious book "Bahishtee Zewar"
easily gives an insight of (**) of his mentality which was full of sexual convulsions. It is said
that this book of Thanvi Saahib "Bahishtee Zewar" has diverted girls from hundreds of
families towards shamelessness and vulgar deeds. This is the reason those people who call
themselves Deobandi Wahaabis, in order to save their daughters and their women from
indecency, do not like to keep this book of Thanvi Saahib in their own homes.)
In the same book Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah on page 713, part 4, it is written yet
another proof of the sexual tendency and impulse of the lmaam of Deobandi Wahaabis
(Thanvi), while explaining the difference between saying and acting. He says:
"Boys at the maktab [religious school] advised Haafiz jee [their teacher who taught them
the Holy Qur'aan] to get married and it is very pleasurable (they tried to indicate in hidden
words about the lust of having sex). Haafiz jee, tried and got married. All night, he touched
bread with the body of his wife and ate [it], how else could he feel any enjoyment? In the
morning, he came to the boys showing anger and saying, Wretched fools said there is lot of
pleasure, there is lot of pleasure. I ate bread after rubbing it with my wife's body. I found it
neither saltish, nor sweet nor bitter. The boys said, Haafiz jee [it] has to be beaten [in Urdu,
Maaraa Kartay Hay]. The next night, he beat her [his wife] black and blue with shoes. The
entire neighborhood was woken up and gathered round his house and snubbed Haafiz jee.
The next morning, he came again and said, You wretched people, you have made me
miserable. Last night I beat her, yet found no pleasure and also earned so much ridicule.
Then the boys explained to him fully what beating meant [they explained about having intercourse]. When the night came, then the reality was uncovered on Haafiz jee and when he
came [to the Maktab] in the next morning, he was filled with happiness. The radiance of happiness was evident from every hair of his mustache and he was filled with pleasure. So
gentlemen, the reality of certain acts are known only after doing them.
To give such an example of becoming fed up with something is also a trade of Thanvi
Saahib, the Hakeem-ul Ummat (Wiseman of the Deobandi Wahaabi-ism). He says:
"There was a blind Haafiz [a person who has memorized the Holy Qur'aan] who was
very greedy. He heard from somewhere that Almighty Allaah had created houries for
bestowing them to mu'mineen (pious men) in paradise. So, he [that Haafiz] used to pray all
the time, O Allaah, send houries, send houries. Baazaari Auratain [prostitutes] are very
naughty. They, somehow, heard this. [These women] decided amongst themselves, Lets

189

make Haafiz jee regret his desire for houries. All [of these women] gathered and came to him.
He, Haafiz jee, on hearing the sound of knocking inquired, Who is it? One woman replied,
Hourie. Haafiz jee was very pleased that his du'aa (supplication) had been answered after a
long time. However, he disgraced himself [had intercourse with that woman]. The second
woman came. He inquired again, Who is it? The woman replied, Hourie. He said to himself, Okay, and once again disgraced himself with her as well. In short, those women were
many and his passion had been withheld for long, but until how long! After his passion had
totally subsided, another woman came and he inquired again, Who is it? The woman
replied, Hourie. Haafiz jee used abusive language and exclaimed, Have all the houries come
only in my fate? So, people, the way Haafiz jee was fed up with houries, you get fed up with
Noor.
(Khutbaat-e-Hakeemul Ummat, p. 248, vol-16, Blessings of Ramadaan, printed by Iadaarah-e-Taaleefaat-e-Ashrafiyah,
Multan)

For explaining the realities and wisdom, such condition on fulfilling a request can only
be presented by the Mullaas of Wahaabi-ism. Let us look at another writing of Thanvi Saahib,
the Revivalist of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism. Talking about his maternal uncle (maamoon) from
Hyderabad, Thanvi Saahib says:
"Abdur Rahmaan Khan Saahib, proprietor of Nizaami press, also came to meet me [the
maternal uncle of Thanvi] and he was very impressed by hearing the talk on realities and
wisdom from his mouth. He requested him [the maternal uncle of Thanvi], please repeat all
your talks in a lecture on [the subject of realities and concealed matters] which you have stated to me so that all Muslims would benefit. The maternal uncle [of Thanvi] gave a strangely
open and daring answer. He said, Khan Saahib, me and lecturing? Salaah-e-Kaar Kujaa-oMan Kharaab Kujaa [I, bad person like me, and an act of goodness?!]
But when Khan Saahib insisted very much then he said: Yes, I can give a lecture, on
one condition, do the arrangement for it. Poor Abdur Rahmaan Saahib was a serious elderly
man. He thought, What arrangement could it be which can not be made. On hearing this,
he eagerly asked, Hazrat what is that unique preparation? The maternal uncle [of Thanvi
Saahib] said, I will go into the bazaar [open market] completely naked in such a way that
there will be one man in the front pulling my sexual organ and another person from behind
placing a finger into my anus and, with me, will be a crowd of boys and they will be
shouting, Pimp, he is a pimp. Pimp he is a pimp. At that time I will give a lecture on
realities and concealed matters. "
(Al-Ifaazaatul Yaumiyah, vol-7, pp. 82, 83, published by Ashraful Mataabe, Thaanah Bhavan, December, 1941 AD)

Thanvi Saahib says, I am with my heart a devotee of this uncle of mine.

(p. 84)

Those Deobandi Wahaabis who believe, Nothing happens with the desire of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), see what views they have about their own Thanvi
Saahib. A Deobandi scholar, Abdul Maajid Daryabadi says, "Allaah only wishes for what one
of his blessed bondsmen [Thanvi] desires."
(Hakeem-ul Ummat, p. 47)

Listen to this very carefully. The same Abdul Maajid Daryabadi, in a letter to Ashraf
Ali Thanvi Saahib, writes:
"A night before the last, my wife dreamt a strange dream. She saw that she was
present in Quba Masjid in Madinah Munawwarah. The youngest wife of [Thanvi] was also
present there. She [wife of Daryabadi] was very pleased to see her there. She (wife of
Thanvi] asked her if she would like to see a picture of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
She eagerly replied, Sure. Meanwhile somebody said, This is Aa'ishah Siddeeqah (Allaah be
pleased with her). Now she [wife of Daryabadi] looked at her intently and with amazement she
found her face and form, dress and manners like the youngest wife (of Thanvi). How can she
be Hazrat Aaishah Siddeeqah? At that very moment, somebody said, No. This [wife of
Thanvi], she is the daughter-in-law of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Now she was
wondering even more, The Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) had no son and then how
could there be a daughter-in-law? At that moment, again, a voice was heard saying,
Everyone who recites the Kalimah is the progeny of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
And in particular, a pious person like Maulana Ashraf Ali is a special progeny of the Prophet.
Therefore, the wife of this Thanvi will be called the daughter-in-law of the Prophet. After
this, from the courtyard of the masjid, the youngest wife came along with him and entered the
inner side of the masjid. There, a kind of door opened, in which, instead of the picture of the
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), the sacred visage of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam) could be seen."
(Hakeem-ul Ummat, pp. 548, 549)

Dear readers, the few writings mentioned above of the senior scholars of the
Deobandi Wahaabis have been reproduced word-to-word from books written by them in
order to fully uncover the reality behind them. This servant of the Ahle Sunnat, unlike the
author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly", is not making any comments on the writings, nor does
he seek a clarification from the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" because commenting and
clarifying filth will result in only spreading it even further. The act of writing filthy state-

191

ments and their foolish explanations and wrong interpretations, this dirty taste and desire
only suits the Deobandi Wahaabis. The fondness for indulging in filth suits only the
Deobandi Wahaabis. Perhaps, the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and all his supporters
of Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, who adore Gangohi Saahib and Thanvi Saahib to the
extent of worship, may try to prove the filth contained in the above-mentioned writings of
Gangohi Saahib and Thanvi Saahib as the cleanest in the world or declare such filth to be
sacred like the Qur'aanic verses or the Ahaadees of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam) and say that even filthy examples are good ones and have been given to explain good
things.

In reply, it is submitted to the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, Fellows, wrong things


are, after all, wrong. But if any of your seniors write a wrong and filthy writing even then
you also declare that wrong as right and that filth as clean. Only because it has been said or
written by one of your own men. And if someone else writes a correct thing, you even
declare that correct writing as wrong. Do you have any proper answer to this? Let me say,
you have an unreasonable enmity and grudge with the truth and us, the people, to truth.
You only find faults in others and if you do not find any faults then you transform good
things in to faults; one should learn only from you!
In volume 2, page 56 of "Ashrafus Sawaanih," your Ashraf Ali Thanvi Saahib declares:
If it is a lover then he will see only qualities, even in the faults [of a beloved] and if it is an
enemy then he will see faults even in the qualities.
You, Deobandi Wahaabis, have made it possible and proven defects even in Allaah.
And have declared thousands of qualities of the faultless Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam) as his faults. So how can we, the Sunnee Muslims, who have correct beliefs, be saved
from your (Deobandi Wahaabis) tyranny and violence?
O, author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and supporters of Deobandi-ism, You
can call this sinful (me) anything you want to say, but do not be disrespectful in any way to
the beloved of Allaah; the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam); the Wives and the
Progeny of the Prophet of Allaah and his Companions and dear ones (Allaah be pleased with them).
Do not make the Beloveds of Allaah unhappy. If you cannot respect them, at least you can
keep yourself away from disrespecting them. If you cannot describe their Grandeur then you
can, at least, maintain silence instead of saying things against their rank and status. You
cannot tolerate the respect of Prophethood and no one is forcing you to do it, but why do you
call those people who, with the Commands of Allaah, respect the Beloveds of Allaah as
wrong and bad? Perhaps, you do not like even the faultless and beloved Prophet of Allaah
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). How amazing that you have no concern with the respect and

192

honor of this Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), by reciting whose Kalimah you call
yourselves Mu'min.
We, the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat, who have the right beliefs, dignify the Beloved
Prophet of Almighty Allaah (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) with every verse of the blessed book
of Almighty Allaah, while you, with the same blessed Book, the holy Qur'aan, use your own
opinion as the basis and try to reduce the dignity of the Beloved Prophet of Allaah (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam). We, Sunnees, are devotedly fond of the greatness and the eminence of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). And you, Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, commit
insolence against the dignity and greatness of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).

We, Sunnees, are eagerly in search of knowing the excellence of the Beloved of Allaah
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), while you, Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, are engaged in finding
faults in the Beloved of Allaah, the faultless Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) You,
yourselves, decide who spends time in better quality? Perhaps you do not even like any
things that are good, because you, yourself, are fault finders and internally evil.
The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and all his associates, perhaps, know
that to put allegation on a faultless person is a great slander. And they have seen in this book
the verdict, given by their own scholar, regarding it. All these Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis
should, with attention, see the advice of their own senior, Thanvi Saahib. He writes in his
book Ifaazaat-e-Yaumiyah, vol 4, on page 742, while advising his fans: You do not see your
own defect but you find defects in others. To explain, he presents a story here:
"A seeker came to a holy man and, after seeing his face, he stood up in amazement.
The holy man inquired, Why? What is the matter? He said, Hazrat, while leaving home, I
was a devotee but after coming here I saw a strange phenomenon which I cannot describe
with my tongue. The holy man said, No, there is no harm in describing. He said, Hazrats
face looks like a dog. The holy man was not annoyed at this and said, Yes [it] might be
looking like that as it happens like this as well. You read the name of Allaah several times.
The seeker read. The holy man inquired, How does it appear now? The seeker said, It
appears like a cat. The holy man said, Read the same name for one more week. After that it
will be seen like a humans. He said, Actually, this was your own face [the seekers]
reflected in the mirror. So, that defected face is actually your own face. Beside this,
sometimes harshness also becomes necessary. For example, if someone wishes to fall into a
well and only one step remains to be taken, so at that time will you make him understand
softly, or you will forcefully pull his hand with a jerk and say, Where do you go? Do you
want to die?

193

By now, the preachers and supporters of Deobandi Wahaabi-ism would have


understood it fully well that these Deobandi Wahaabis, who call us truthful Sunnees Muslims
as evil, they are actually seeing their own ugly faces in the mirror, according to their own
Thanvi Saahib. Moreover, let us see further:
On page 60, vol. 2 of "Ashrafus Sawaanih, Thanvi Saahib says: "Everybody does not
deserve gentle treatment. People say, Do not be harsh. But why should I not be harsh, when
without harshness there would be no improvement. Now see, ten to twelve years of
gentleness could not bring any reform in them, rather their mind is ruined. And the scolding
of ten to twelve minutes has completely reformed them. The mind has been perfected, the
devil has gone out. He further says, If the commonly known behavior is kept overpowered
by our convenience then it means the people should be left immersed in illiteracy all their
lives.
(p. 61)

I plea to the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and all Deobandi Wahaabi


Tableeghis to give up their baseless stubbornness, malice and enmity for seeking the Truth
and, with open heartedness and honesty, go through the life and teachings of the Imaam of
Ahle Sunnat, Alaa Hazrat Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him)
and his, more than one thousand, books. Or only, just go through the twelve volume, largesized Fataawaa Rizviyah. You will not be able to find a match of it amongst the whole
Deoband. Undoubtedly, after reading them, you will be able to have a correct analysis of
Alaa Hazrat Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him).
Your perception will also testify this fact that, without any doubt, Alaa Hazrat
Maulana Shah Ahmad Razaa Khan Barelvi (Allaah have mercy on him) is truly the Reviver of the
True Religion, a firm follower of Shari'ah and Sunnah, a Creator of an Era, a Divine scholar
and a true lover of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Senior scholars of Arab and
Ajam (Non-Arab) and scholars of Deoband have, themselves, acknowledged Alaa Hazrat
Barelvis (Allaah have mercy on him) vastness of knowledge and love for the Holy Prophet (Sallal
Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). South African and all other Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis and their
scholars should not ruin themselves by indulging in invalid accusations but they should
accept the fact that we, the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat (the Sunnees whom you call Barelvis),
are only the true followers and bound to the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and our beliefs and
actions are proven by the books written by Deobandi Wahaabis themselves.
The author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and the supporters of Deobandi-ism, should
under no condition, displease Allaah Almighty and His beloved, the last Prophet (Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam), or earn for themselves eternal punishment and wrath just to maintain their

194

false ego in this temporary world for the sake of a few coins. If Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi,
Muhammad Qaasim Naanotvi, Khaleel Ahmad Ambethvi and Ashraf Ali Thanvi and others
have made a mistake and have done infidelity then you should not become a supporter of
these people who have written such blasphemous writings and, by becoming an acceptor or a
supporter of these writing of infidelity, you should not collect infidelity for yourselves.
This servant of the Ahle Sunnat, dust from beneath the feet of the Progeny of the Holy
Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), has only for the sake of Allaah's pleasure and the pleasure
of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) repeatedly invited you to the truth and has
placed the facts in front of you. In spite of this, you remain adamant on your beliefs that,
"Almighty Allaah can speak lies and he has spoken lies; Allaah Almighty has no prior
knowledge of every unseen all the time; Allaah does not know in advance about His
bondsmens activities; whatever and as much Allaah has bestowed knowledge of unseen to
the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) that amount or like that is also possessed by
children, the demented and the beasts; the expression Khaataman-Nabiyyeen does not
mean the Last Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam); the knowledge possessed by Shaietaan is
greater than the knowledge possessed by the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam)." Allaah forbid, again, Allaah forbid!
And all these wrong beliefs held by you, the Deobandi Wahaabis, which this humble
person has copied in his book "Deoband to Bareilly: The Truth", they are also present in this
book, White and Black. If the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly" and his supporters, all
Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, are firm on their same beliefs then this servant of Ahle
Sunnat, once again, invites them to come let us get the decision made by Almighty Allaah.
This servant of the Ahle Sunnat is ready to enter a Mubaahilah (a meeting of contending
parties where persons or parties invoke the curse of Allaah on those who deny the truth).
Your own Thanvi Saahib has said, If someone is about to destroy himself then he cannot be
dealt in gentle ways. Your own Thanvi Saahib says:

"Suppose, someone has a malignant abscess which is full of foul matter and it needs an
operation then to say there, No, only treat it externally and apply some ointment to it. Even
if the foul matter spreads internally throughout the entire body and ruin the whole body, this
is accepted but this is not accepted that, with only one cut, all the foul matter is taken out.
(Ashrafus Sawaanih, vol. 2, p. 60)

Furthermore he says, "Where harshness is needed, there, it is justice in being harsh. To


be tender on such occasion is cruelty.
(Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyah, p. 80)

195

This servant of the Ahle-Sunnat also states, This controversy has been going on for
nearly eighty years. By now, hundreds of books have been written. The realities have been
explained in a thousand ways. Despite this, if the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis remain firm
on their stubbornness and refuse to accept the truth then they should not be afraid in
engaging in a Mubaahilah. They should accept the invitation of this servant of the Ahle
Sunnat for Mubaahilah and also accept whatever the decision of Allaah Taaalaa is.
Dear readers, this servant of the Ahle Sunnat accepts that I do not have any pride
in myself nor do I have any pride or arrogance on my knowledge or actions. This sinful
person does not even consider himself as the dust of Madinah Munawwarah, the city of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Yes, if I have pride, it is only on this that I have the
collar of being the slave of the slaves of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) around
my neck. I definitely have pride in my attachment with the People of Allaah (Allaah have mercy
on them). I am sure that my Allaah will forgive my sins and will make me successful only for
the sake of honor and dignity of His beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and for the
sake of defending the greatness and truthfulness of His beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam), In Shaa Allaah ul Azeez.

Now, I, concluding my argument


If the author of "Johannesburg to Bareilly", his supporters and all the Deobandi
Wahaabi Tableeghis want to seek the truth (and they are sure of their standpoint and their
truth and are not prepared to accept the facts presented by me), for establishing the true as
the truth and to prove wrong as wrong, they should come out for an open Mubaahilah with
this ordinary slave of Mahboob-e-Subhaani, Ghaus-e-A'zam Hazrat Muhiy-ud-Deen Saiyyidinaa
Abdul Qaadir Jeelaani (Allaah be pleased with him). Otherwise, on the Day of Judgment they will
have no excuse.
The goal of this servant is only to earn the pleasure of Allaah and the pleasure of the
Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). I have no respect for someone who is disrespectful
and insolent to my Beloved Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). Those who are the true
slaves and lovers of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam), this sinful is the slave of all
those lovers of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam). In my writings, speeches,
information and actions this sinful is a strict follower of this principle:


Al Hubbu Lil Laahi Walir Rasool Wal Bughdu Lil Laahi Walir Rasool

196

(Love for the sake of Allaah and His Prophet and have enmity for the sake of Allaah and His
Prophet)
And according to this principle, I do not torment someones heart for personal reasons
even while discarding the disrespectful of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam).
(Therefore, this sinner says to the Deobandi Wahaabi Tableeghis, the Rafaazis (Shi'ites) and
all other incorrect factions, They should not provoke us. Otherwise, we will not spare
you. (Meaning that do not raise unfounded and invalid accusations against us. Otherwise,
we will not stay without exposing you).
I am sorry if I have unintentionally tormented anyones heart. May the Merciful
Allaah forgive me!
In the end, this servant of the Ahle Sunnat requests his readers to pray for me. I
request all of you to remain steadfast on the true faith of Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaaat. We,
Sunnees, certainly with the Grace and Mercy of Allaah, are on the path of the Holy Prophet
(Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) and his perfect followers. And we supplicate to our Worthy of
Worship, Allaah Subhaana Wa Taaalaa, the Almighty Allaah this: make the true slavery of His
beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam) our honor and distinction. And in both worlds,
bestow us His pleasure and the pleasure of His Beloved Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa
Sallam), Aameen.
