I bought this book. It is quite a worthwhile read. Pages 198 onwards deal with al Balagh ul Mubeen
On the parting of Deobandi thought from the scholarly tradition of Hazrat Shah Waliyullah & Shah Abdul Aziz Dehlavi [Son &successor of Shah Sahib]: Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi’s account:[in the work SHAH 'ABD AL-'AZIZ_Puritanism,Sectarian,Polemics and Jihad(Canberra1982) :
The author after giving two incidents from the deobandi perspective notes that , ALTHOUGH BOTH STORIES ARE MOST CRITICAL OF BOTH SHAH WALI ALLAH AND SHAH 'ABD AL-'AZIZ AND SEEM TO BE UNLIKELY, THEY ARE UNQUESTIONINGLY BELIEVED TO BE TRUE BY THE SAYYID'S ADMIRERS.
The stories are:
“In Delhi, the Sayyid [ahmed ib irfan] called on Shah 'Abd al-'Aziz and greeted him the Islamic salam 'alaikum (peace be with you). According to theAmir al-rawdydt, Shah Wali-Allah and Shah 'Abd al-'Aziz, despite their devotion to the puritanical reform, were greeted even by their family members with the customary Mughal court humility. The Sayyid'sspontaneous demonstration of the Prophet's sunna prompted Shah 'Abdal-'Aziz to make shari'a greetings compulsory for all.
When the Shah learnt that the visitor [SAYYID AHMAD IBN IRFAN] was the maternal grandson of Shah Abu Sa'id and the nephew of Sayyid Nu'man and had come to him to obtain spiritual perfection, he was very pleased. He assigned him to the care of his brother Shah 'Abd al-Qadir. A few days later Shah 'Abd al-'Aziz initiated the Sayyid into the Naqshbandiyya, Qadiriyya and Chishtiyya silsilas. During his mystical training the Shah asked the Sayyid to meditate by keeping the figure of the Shaykh (religious guide) in his vision, called the tasawwur-i Shaykh in sufi parlance. The Sayyid thereupon shocked the puritan Shah by requesting him to explain how contemplating the tasawwur-i Shaykh differed from idol worship (which involved worshiping a stone or paper figure).
The Shah recited the Hafiz's famous verse:
"Dip the prayer carpet into wine
were the chief priest to order it;
for the traveller on the sufic path
not unaware of the rules of reaching the goal."
Sayyid Ahmad Shahid replied that only the Qur'an, Sunna or the ijma of umma could convince him that the tasawwur-i Shaykh and idol worshipwere different from each other. The Shah congratulated the Sayyid and said that he was blessed with the prophetic wilaya (nearness to God).
Although both stories are most critical of both Shah Wall Allah and Shah'Abd al-'Aziz and seem to be unlikely, they are unquestioningly believed to be true by the Sayyid's admirers. Be as it may, on the Sayyid's request the Shah explained that those who are endowed with the common place wilaya are the chosen slaves of God who so deeply love Allah that no trace of worldly attachment, or love of wealth, property or family remains in their heart. People considered them lunatics. They were engrossed in crushing their self, and in prayers, meditations and services to mankind. Their life is patterned after the following verse :
"The (faithful) slaves of the Beneficent are they who walk upon the
Earth modestly, and when the foolish ones address them answer :
They do not interfere with the sinner's lives but lead a secluded, ascetic life.
According to the author of Makhzan-i Ahmadi, the Sayyid's mystical exercises endowed him with the Prophetic wilaya. The Prophet himself appeared to him in a vision. 'All and Fatima also appeared Ali washed him and Fatima dressed him in new clothes. These ceremonies marked the culmination of the Sayyid's attainment of the Prophetic wilaya?!!!

Shah Waliullah Dehlvi[rah] in this same 2nd volume of Tafhimat Ilahiya:
Shah Waliullah Dehlvi writes in 2nd volume of Tafhimat Ilahiya: "Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir Jilani [qs] has authority to influence matters of the whole universe because when he passed away, he acquired characteristics of the higher assembly[mala' al-a'la...]. He acquired the body that influences the whole universe and he became like a soul!!!!!
[Hashiya Hama'at, p 62, Muhammad Nur al-Haq Alawi]
Atyab un Naghm fi Madhi Sayyidil Arab wal Ajam
Hazrat Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Dehalvi [Rh] wrote ] Atyab un Naghm fi Madh Sayyidil Arab wal Ajam ( Arabic). It is a book in praise and love of The Holy Prophet [Sal allahu alayhi wa sallam ]. He also wrote commentary to this book in Persian language.
In the eleventh chapter of this book: (Nabi Pak sal allahu alayhi wa sallam ki baargah mein aajizi wa farayaad be bayaan mein) , he uses these term for The Holy Prophet [Sal allahu alayhi wa sallam]
“ the one from whom we have hope”
“the one who removes difficulties”
“ you are the one who remove my difficulty when my heart is in great problem”
After writing this , he writes in the commentary: “ there are many matters in which to seek help from the blessed soul of Prophet ( sal allahu alayhi wa sallam ) is necessary.”
It has also been translated into Urdu by peer Karam shah Azhari (rh)
Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (rh) mentioned this in his fatwa
[Abdullah Shah Sabiri Chisti]
Dr Mawlana Muhammad Abdul Sattaar Khan Naqshbandi Qadri, Ex- Professor of Arabic, Jamia Osmania, Hyderabad, AP ,India in his introduction to the work of Shaikh Zaid Faruqi on Ibn Taymiyyah writes,"Towards the end of his life when Shah Waliullah wrote his will, he made this point very strongly amid others: “It is inevitable for us (Muslims) to visit the two holy mosques and to rub our faces at these shrines. It will be our felicity. In an otherwise case it
will be our misfortune and wickedness, if we disregard the above.”
He recounts his own experience that he gained immense benefits while keeping the complete attention towards the Prophet near his shrine in Madina Munawwarah (Anfasal-Aarifin). The details of such spiritual gains have been featured at length in his Fuyuz al-Haramayn. One should better go through it for finding out what he gained there. In this work he declares: “The Prophet (peace be upon him) himself guided me to the path of sulook and trained
me with his blessed hands. I owe everything to him and I am his
direct disciple (Owaisi).”
In a dream Shah’s father, Shah Abdur Raheem has been granted two hairs by the Prophet (peace be upon him) out of his blessed beard. Shah Waliullah states that his father had received these in the state of wakefulness, and had been in his father’s custody for a long time. When it was time for the distribution of relics, he got one of those hairs. (Anfas al-Arifin P-41)
Shah Walliullah’s son Shah Abdul Aziz has explained one of the features of his work is that “After meditation (Muraqaba), he (Shah Waliullah) used to record whatever he saw in his divine inspiration (Kashf)”. (Malfoozaat P-40)
So, for the blessed persons, this is the status of Prophet’s holy grave (Raudha-e-Munnavara) and the status of Prophet Himself,May numerous blessings be upon the Prophet (peace be upon him).
Anfas al-Arifin: A Journey to Ajmer
Hazrat Shah Waliullah al-Dehlawi mentions the following story,with approval, in his wonderful ‘Anfas al-Arifin’ regarding his father Shaykh Abd al-Rahim al-Dehlawi(qs)’s miracles. Shah Sahib said pg.134:
"He[Shaykh Abd al-Rahim al-Dehlawi] said: Muhammad Fazil wanted to send his son to Ajmer[FOR ZIYARA] and due to the presence of danger of the route also wanted to go with him. When he came to bid farewell I said to him: “Your going is not necessary because he will return safely, yes however two stops (manzil) from Ajmer bandits will attack the caravan and his protection is our responsibility. But explain to him that at this time to move his cart to one side”.
When this time came Hazrat focussed towards there and during his focus discomfort was evident on his body. Those present all asked so he replied that an arduous journey of some days has tired me.
When that boy returned he informed that there were bandits there, I moved my cart to one side, there the image of Hazrat’s form was present. The bandits looted the whole caravan but my cart was protected."[Adapted from:http://daralhadith.wordpress.com/2009/05/13/anfas-al-arifin-a-journey-to-ajmer/] How can such a scholar write that journey to Ajmer is Shirk?
Shaykh Huseyin Hilmi Isik's Views
The Turkish Hanafi Scholar Shaykh Huseyin Hilmi Isik an-Naqshbandi , wrote , "The Ahl as-Sunnat scholars wrote many books in order to refute the Tabligh group and to reveal the fact that they were heretics. They could not answer these books at all. Hadrat Mawlana 'Abd al-'Alim Siddiqi wrote that Ilyas's teachers were in an endeavor to demolish Islam from within." [This is written in detail also in the books al-mustanad, Usul al-arba'a fi tardid al-Wahhabiyya, ad-dawlat al-Makkiyya and Hediyya-t-ul-Mehdiyyin, which were reproduced in Istanbul in 1395 (1975).]
When Ilyas died in 1363 (1949) the successor was his son, Muhammad Yusuf Kandhlawi [b. Delhi, 1335 (1917); d. Lahore, buried Delhi, 1394 (1974)]. Yusuf's three-volume book, Hayat-us-Sahaba, was translated into Turkish and published in 1395 (1975). Because as-Sahaba are praised much in this book it arouses admiration in the reader. But there is a famous saying: "Judge a man by his actions, not by his words." One who believes in the superiority of as-Sahaba and loves them has to follow in their path, which is the path shown by the Ahl as-Sunnat scholars. The sign of love for as-Sahaba is to learn the fiqh books of one of the four Ahl as-Sunnat madhhabs, to endeavor to disseminate this knowledge and to live up to it. Muhammad Yusuf was succeeded by his son, Shaikh In'am al-Hasan, who was the hadith teacher at Mazahir-i 'Ulum Madrasa in Saharanpur, India. Abu 'l-Hasan 'Ali Nadwi, the director of Nadwat al-ulama' [founded in Lucknow, India in 1310 (1891)], praises al-Imam ar-Rabbani Ahmad as-Sirhindi and his services in his book Ad-da'wat al-Islamiyya [Lucknow, 1395 (1975)], but adds his praises for Ismail Dahlawi (killed in 1246), Nadhir Husain Dahlawi (d. 1320), the madrasa in Diobend which was founded by Muhammad Qasim Nanawtawi [d. 1317 (1899)], one of the Khulafa' of Imdad-ullah, in 1288 (1871), Ashraf Ali Tahanawi (d. 1362), the Tabligh group and its founder, Muhammad Ilyas. This faqir, the author, has read the book Taqwim al-bayan, Persian translation of Ismail Dahlawi's Taqwiyat al-iman [Pakistan, 1396 (1976)] and come to the conclusion that Ismail is not only a sheer ignoramus but also a non-madhhabi idiot who strives to censure the right by alloying it with the wrong. May Allahu ta'ala protect Muslims from reading and believing such heretical writings and falling into endless calamity! Amin!"
Dr. Muhammad Abdul Haq Ansari's quote:
Dr. Muhammad Abdul Haq Ansari , the former Amir (president) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind &author of the research work ,Sufism and Shariah: A Study of Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi’s Effort to Reform Sufism, The Islamic Foundation, Leicester, U.K. 1985;,quotes Fuyudul Haramain,of Shah Sahib,from Urdu,on the Saintly Way of Sufi Way.as Prophet (s)'s attitude to the Sufi Way)___(in the words pf Shah Waliyullah),"---my impression is that Prophet (saws) did not have a good opinion about it ,nor did he like it-His(saws) life symbolized the first Way (Prophetic Way) of approaching to God.----}[page 67] [Wali Allah,Fuyud-l Haramayn .

Miladu Nabi (saws)
Shah Waliullah Muhaddith-e-Dehlvi writes,
Abul a'la Mawdudi'is Contribution to this Forgery:
Sayyid Abul A'la Mawdudi , a religion reformer of Indo-Pak Subcontinent who passed away 30 years ago , in his book 'a short history of revivalist movement in Islam' endorses this forgery as if authored by Shah Sahib (rah)
and he adds "But as a matter of principle, any person who prays a dead one for the fulfillment of his desires, thinking that he is alive , corrupts his heart with sin".( as an extract from Tafhimat).
Two significant conclusions drawn by the French scholar Marc Gaborieau on his landmark study of the forged text 'Al-Balagh al-Mubin' in the name of Hazrat Shah Waliyullah Muhaddis Dehlawi(qs), referred to in post #10
Radical teachings of Hanbalis [Ibn Taimiyyah and Ibn Qayyim and one Ahmad Rumi ] appeared in India in the Nineteenth Century only [after 1818.AD and that too in the circles of Sayyid Ahmad Barelvi and Shah Ismai’il.]
It was purposely forged by people who wanted to avail themselves of the undisputed authority of Shah Waliullah and for this reason forged in Persian language , though by that time Urdu had become the usual medium for controversies.
An excerpt from The Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him And His Family) The Proof Of Allah’s Majesty And The Bringer Of The Divine Law, a lecture delivered by Hazrath Maulana Muhammad Shafi Okarvi (may Allah be well pleased with him) at: http://sufi.co.za/article%20okarvi%20proof.htm
Shaikh al-Muhaddithin Hazrath Allama Shah Abd al-Haq Muhaddith Dehlvi (may Allah be well pleased with him):
Do you realize what a great personality he is? We accept him as great but his proximity to Allah and greatness is accepted by those opposed to our beliefs also. Molvi Ashraf Ali Thanvi has written about Shah Abd al-Haq Muhaddith Dehlvi (may Allah be well pleased with him), that daily he was blessed with the vision of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) in his dreams. Such Ulama are called Huzuri wale Ulama . Meaning that they present themselves (haazir) daily at the Holy Court of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) and thereby receive solutions to many problems from the audience with the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family).
This great personality, Shaikh al-Muhaddithin Hazrath Allama Shah Abd al-Haq Muhaddith Dehlvi (may Allah be well pleased with him), says about this Hadith:
Dar hadithe sahih aam da ast Awwalu ma khalaqallahu noori
It is reported in sound sayings of the Holy Prophet that the Holy Prophet stated, ‘The first thing or being that Allah created first is my light (nur)’
Listen to another Hadith. My respected elders and friends, listen attentively to this next Hadith that I am about to present to you. Imame Ajal, Imam Abd ar-Razaq (may Allah be well pleased with him) who is the teacher of a great personality like Hazrath Imam Ahmad Hamnbal (may Allah be well pleased with him) one of the four Imams of Islamic Law (fiqh). Imam Abd ar-Razaq, is also the grand teacher of Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim. Hazrath Imam Ahmad Hamnbal says that I have never seen another Imam to match Imam Abd ar-Razaq’s knowledge of Hadith. This great Imam, Abd ar-Razaq has presented this Hadith with its chain of narration. This is a ‘high-ranking’ (marfu) Hadith. In case anyone objects and speak out after I leave therefore I present to you another reference for this Hadith. Molvi Ashraf Ali Thanvi has written a book on the life of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) called ‘Nashrut teeb fi zikre Habeeb’. I have this book in my possession at this very instant. He has a chapter in this book called, Section One: ‘A discourse on the light of Muhammad’ (pehli fasl, Nure Muhammadi ke bayaan.). He has quoted this Hadith and given a commentary. I will relate it to you in the Arabic.
Removal Of Hadith And Statements From Original Books Of Great Scholars
Before I relate this Hadith I would like to tell you one more thing. Imam Qastalani (may Allah be well pleased with him) has reproduced this Hadith in the commentary of Sahih Bukhari (Sharahe Sahih Bukhari) and given the reference of Imam Abd ar-Razaq’s (may Allah be well pleased with him) book al-Musannaf. Thanvi Sahib has also reproduced this Hadith and given the same reference. Great imam’s have quoted this Hadith and have given the reference of Imam Abd ar-Razaq’s (may Allah be well pleased with him) book al-Musannaf.
These present followers of Deoband are reprinting this book al-Musannaf that has been quoted as a reference by great Imams as well as their Deobandi Molvi Ashraf Ali Thanvi. These Deobandis have removed this Hadith from the reprint of al-Musannaf (translators note: the year 1960 to1970). They have removed and deliberately omitted this Hadith from the original source. If you don’t want to accept the Hadith then do so but why did you remove and deliberately omit this Hadith from the original source? So these people are ‘Thieves of Hadith’. They steal the Hadith of the Holy Prophet. Some thieves steal money, rob stores or homes but they steal from the Hadith of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family). Is this not stealing? Rejecting is something else but to remove the Hadith from the source book cannot be tolerated by any person in the world that loves justice. This is a crime and offense. I convened a conference in the city of Karachi and named the conference ‘Thieves of the Religion’ (Din ke Chor). At this conference I made many references to where these people have removed texts from original sources.
The Supreme Helper (Ghaus al-Azam), The Beloved of The Most Powerful (Mahboobe Subhaani), Shaykh Sayyid Abd al-Qaadir, of Gilan (al-Jilaani) (may Allah be well pleased with him) has written a famous book Futuuh al-Ghaib (Revelations of the Unseen). The Wahabbis have reprinted this book in Karachi. Ghaws al-Azam says in this book that an ‘Intimate of Allah’ (Waliullah) when he reaches the state of being ‘A Spiritual Axis’ (Qutbiyat) and being ‘The Mightiest Helper ’ (Ghawsiyat) then he is given the power by Allah’s leave to say, ‘Be’ (kun) (Wa qab yuraddoh illaihi tatweer). When this Qutb or Ghaws says, ‘kun’ then whatever he wills to be, becomes. In the Wahabbis reprint of this book they have removed this statement since it conflicts with their beliefs.
Shah Abd al-Aziz Muhaddith Dehlvi (may Allah be well pleased with him) has written a book against the Shia, called, ‘Towfa Ithna Asharia’ and in this book he has written that the Shia, say the we the Sunnis are the enemies of the Household of the Prophet (Ahl al-Bayt). In our defense Shah Abd al-Aziz Sahib says that how can we be the enemies of the ‘Household of the Prophet’ (Ahl al-Bayt) since we, The followers of the Holy Prophet’s Sunnah and the Sunnah of the congregation of his Companions (ahle Sunnah wa jamaat) accept all the Awliya of ahle Sunnah wa jamaat, accept all the Spiritual Masters of the four Sufi Orders and we remember Imam Hassan and Hussain (may Allah be well pleased with them) and feed in their blessed memory (nazro niaz). So if we are enemies of the Household of the Prophet (Ahl al-Bayt) then why do we remember Imam Hassan and Hussain (may Allah be well pleased with them) and feed in their blessed memory. The entire ahle Sunnah wa jamaat and their pious elders remember Imam Hassan and Hussain and feed in their blessed memory. These Wahabbis and Deobandis, who really reject the remembrance of Imam Hassan and Hussain, have reprinted Shah Abd al-Aziz Muhaddith Dehlvi’s, book ‘Towfa Ithna Asharia’ and have removed this statement from the book since it is in conflict with their beliefs.
If you don’t accept nazro niaz then don’t accept it but why have you changed the books of great scholars. Why do you steal from the texts? So tell me what did the Jews do? Did they not conceal the name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his family) from the Torah? These (hypocrites) are concealing the great attributes of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his family) from the Qur’aan and Ahadith. I am not speaking falsely I say it with conviction. Any thing I state I state with certainty since to accuse anyone falsely is a major sin. Why am I making such a commotion about this? Tell me, he whose home is being plundered, does he not make a noise? My house is being plundered, since my simple Sunni brothers, who believe like me, are becoming victims of their deception and lies. My house is being plundered; those who have my beliefs (aqida) are changing. Why should I not bark since I am a dog of the Holy Court of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family). When a thief arrives does not a dog bark and make a noise? The dog is a trustworthy servant and he protects the source of his sustenance. I am a dog of the Holy Court of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) and am sustained by the bits and pieces of this Holy Court. So being his dog I warn you with an outcry, to protect yourselves from these thieves. Protect your Iman.
I swear by Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) that this life of mine is an offering (waqf) on the name of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family). This life has been put on the line on many occasions. They have tried on numerous occasions to injure and murder me. Allah has always protected me. In this big gathering, I swear by Allah, and state that I have received glad tidings (bashaarat) from the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) that none can harm me. I am not accusing without proof. I have the proof in my possession and my protector is the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family). My protectors are the Awliya. If this life is sacrificed on their name, then let a thousand such lives be sacrificed on the soil that touch their blessed feet. I swear by Allah that I don’t have a personal grudge or enmity against anybody. If they return to the fold of truth, in the servitude of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family), and praise him, then I am prepared to carry their shoes.
I keep on telling them to abuse me but refrain from abusing and insulting the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family). How can I keep quiet knowing their transgressions and injustice being perpetrated on the Community of Believers, being an eyewitness to this sacrilege? What answer will I give the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) on the Day of Reckoning? The Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) will ask, “People used to kiss your hand, garland you and shower you with presents because you used to take my name and when my personality was being blasphemed, and my sayings were being removed from books you kept quiet.” Those who swear me, do so! I have no fear, for I will present myself at the Holy Court of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) and say, ‘Master! I ate the bits and pieces of your Holy Court and I have been faithful. I did as much as I could. So please accept my servitude to you, for I consider it enough for my salvation.’ Note what I am saying. I swear by Allah that I don’t have a personal grudge or enmity against anybody. I oppose those who blaspheme the personality and status of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) because this is disrespect to the Holy Prophet’s status.

Ibn Taymiyya / Shah Wali Allah by Shaykh. G. F. Haddad
Under the title 'Ibn Taymiyya / Shah Wali Allah / Ibn `Abd al-Barr'
[by Sh. G. F. Haddad]
al-Hafidh Imam Hujjatul Allah Shah Wali Allah al-Dahlawi ( A Sufi and Wali of Allah ) said in his book Maktoobat ma3a manaqib al-Imam Bukhari wa Fa'daail Ibn Taymiyyah ( published in Farsi and Arabic and in the Indian Sub continent known as Maktoobat Imam Shah Wali Allah Dahlawi ) page 18-23:
Explaining this Shaykh Jibril Haddad writes:
Shaykh G.F.Haddad's excellent refutation of Ibn Taymiyyah:
Ahmad ibn Taymiyya (661-728) A Brief Survey
Al-Tafhimat al-Ilahiyyah -Shah Waliullah Dahlawi_ Another ‘worm’ ?
Al-Tafhimat al-Ilahiyyah -Shah Waliullah Dahlawi
Quote about the Arch Bishop of Salafiyyah , Ibn Taymiyyah
? Another Forgery into Tafhimat-i Ilahiyya.
Quoted by one the notable modern day lover and follower of Ibn Taymiyyah , the pro-Deobandi Scholar Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi Sahib ,as if written by Shah Sahib.
[ Jala ‘al-‘Ainan p64 as cited from Tafhimat-i Ilahiyya
‘Hakim-ul- Islam Shah Waliullah ‘ p117-By Sayed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi]
I don’t know why He had given indirect reference to Tafhimat.
I have already quoted the fatwa of Shah Abdul Aziz Muhaddis Dehlawi.(Rah), eldest son and successor of Hazrat Shah Waliyullah Dehlawi.(Rah) refuting Ibn Taymiyyah , about whom Imam Ibn Hajar al-Hythami (rah) had written that 'He was misguided and leading others to misguidance',(Ali Miyan Nadwi being a prominent example) in post #10
Deobandi maslak and Shah Ismai'il Dehlavi
1]One of the revered among pioneer scholars of Deoband school Maulana Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi in his authoritative work ‘Fatawa Rasheediya’ states about Shah Ismaeel Shaheed:
Fatawa Rasheediya Kamil, pages 218-219 (Maktaba Rahmaniya, Lahore)
2] The Salafi publisher of the English translation of ‘Taqwiyatul Iman’ (Strengthening the faith) writes:
[Taqwiyatul Iman [English] page 9 (Daar-us-Salam Publications, Riyadh-Saudi Arabia)]
3] A Deobandi mufti :
[Mufti Muhammad Ashraf- Jamia Mahmoodiyah.Springer]
[FONT="]But the Mask is here:The Deobandi's official website omits Shah Ismai'il and instead has:[/FONT]
So the fabrications need to be forever.
Deobandis on Abaqat
Deobandis, as ‘our internet mujthahid’ often quote the ‘Abaqat’ prove that Shah Ismail was indeed a sunni forever, as in his article “Shattering the Wahhabi Myths surrounding Shah Isma‘il Shahid_[An original Deoband.org article_By Saad Khan ]
On the strength of this work the deobandi writes that ‘Allamah Shah Muhammad Isma’il Shahid Dahlawi was a great scholar, Muhaddith, Sufi and Reformer.
Indeed he was all that are mentioned till he wrote his disastrous work ‘Taqwiyatul Iman’(in Urdu) , published in 1242.AH. after Hajj , said to be under the influence of ALI ASH-SHOUKANI (d.1250.AH ) of Yemen , a Zaydi Shiah scholar who had adopted Wahabism, which was an exposition of ‘Raddul Ishrak’(Persian) of Sayyed Ahmed Bareli, his own shaykh who wrote it based upon or ‘Kitabu Tawhid’ of Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahab ,and as adapted to Indian context, making some changes so as to look like an original work.
The Deobandi had reproduced Ismai’il Dehlwi’s article on the truth of Ahlu sunnah to prove the that Ismai’il Dehlawi was a sunni
When we compare these passage with a single passage from ‘Taqwiatul Iman’
[Under_customs are shirk]
In the print edition there some differences .—as –1-instead of commandments of law ‘ the text has ‘to those of Hadiths’and 2- even to consider the Sayings’ of Apostle to be the code of Islam’ 3-instead of Father, Grand father , the word is just ‘ancestors’(are polytheism),as translated by Badar Azimabadi _Published by Adam publishers.Delhi]
[FONT="] How can a same person with the same undiluted faith of his predecessors write both?. He mixes truth with falsehood and cleverly differentiates ‘the way of imams and mujthahids’ from that of Holy Qur’an and Traditions as if both are different. If this is not wahabism Shah Ismail Dehlawi is not a Wahabi. Are we the judges to judge whether the imams and saints are inside or outside the law?
In short, according to ‘Abaqat’ the Muqallids are on the Right Path and according to ‘Taqwiyatul Iman, we have to be’Mujthahids’ by ourselves in order to be saved from all traces of ‘shirk’. How can we reconcile both?
[/FONT] He again wrote under ' The Kitab al-Tawhid Myth'
(?!) It is the irony of Deobandi ideology that they love both ‘Abaqat’ and ‘Taqwiyatul Iman’ together. They make Shah Ismai’il a sunni and depend upon forgeries in the works of Sah Waliyullah(Rah) to prove that he had ideas like Ibn Abdul Wahab! Shah Ismai’il Dehlawi himself and his immediate successors needed the authority of Shah Sahib in order to justify their ‘Neo-Tawhid’ and therefore the successions of interpolations and forgeries in Shah Waliyullah’s works.
The Pro- deobandis like Sayyed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi Sahib too had such imaginary views.
Shah Muhammad Ismai’il Dehlwi (b.1193.AH) (The Sunni stage)
Shah Muhammad Ismai’il Dehlwi (b.1193AH) who was the solitary son of Shah Abdul-Ghani, the last son of Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Delhlawi, wrote in his preface to ‘Abaqat’(Diffusions of Perfume) which he had written when Shah Abdul Aziz Dehlawi(Rah) was still alive , a work on mystical philosophy as a commentary to ‘SATA’AT’ and ‘LAMAHAT’, explaining Wahdatul Wujud &Wahdatul Shuhud in a noble way, of his Great grandfather, which He wrote while he was still under his paternal family influence before his conversion to Reformism.
[His uncles were Shah Abdul Aziz Muhaddith, Shah Rafiuddin Muhaddith and Shah Abdul-Qadir Muhaddith Dehlwi.RAH.]
He again wrote:
[Ishara 4 ‘Abaqa 6 pp 252-53_ABAQAT]
It is pity that such a scholar and saint too , became the originator of whole misguidance later in his life.
Shah Shah Wali Allah (Qutb al-Din Ahmad ibn Abd al-Rahim) (1703-62)
Who was Shah Sahib?
The Factors which led to Fabrications in Shah sahib's works
As per my understanding the first and foremost is the conversion of Shah ismai'il Dehlavi from the pure unadulterated Sunni Creed to the Reformist Creed of 'Indian Wahabism'. InshaAllah I will provide the evidences especially for the former which is less known than the later
The incidence is bewildering.The lesson is from

elevated him thereby, but he clung to the earth and followed his desire. So, his example is like the example of a dog, if you attack him, he pants, and if you leave him alone he pants. That is the example of those who belied our signs. So, relate the chronicles, so that they may ponder!' [I76]
Evil is the example of those who have belied
our signs and have been doing wrong to themselves. [I77]
