    Shaykh G F Haddad on a Deobandi's False Assertion against Mullah Ali al-Qari

    Shaykh G F Haddad says in The Omnipresence of the Prophet Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam:

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]A Deobandi's False Assertion against Mullah Ali al-Qari[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Recently, a Deobandi writer forwarded the strange claim that al-Qari’s text in Sharh al-Shifa’ actually stated, “NOT THAT his soul, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, is present in the houses of the Muslims” (lâ anna rûhahu hâdiratun fî buyûti al-muslimîn) that is, the diametrical opposite of what al-Qari actually said!:[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]He [al-Qari] discussed the issue in the Sharh of Shifa, that lâ anna rûhahu hâdiratun fî buyûti al-muslimîn i.e. this notion is incorrect that the soul of our Master Hazrat Mohammed, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, is present in the homes of the Muslims. In some copies the word has been dropped and has with­out any reason created confusion for some individuals, including Mufti Ahmed Yar Khan sahib (see Jaa al-Haqq p. 142). ... In all his explicit quotes Hazrat Mulla Ali al-Qari himself negates the belief of hâdir wa nâzir. Those who have relied on his brief, indistinct quotes (out of context) are absolutely and definitely wrong.[15] [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]That one can actually dare to make the above claim is only because of ignorance of the Arabic language since al-Qari prefaces the statement with the word “meaning (ay),” which would be grammatically incorrect if it were followed by a disclaimer such as “not that his soul is present in the houses of the Muslims.” The truth is that no such word as has been dropped because there was no such word there in the first place, and the claim that there was is nothing short of tampering (tahrîf). Furthermore, the word al-Qari used for “present” is hâdir in the masculine, not hâdiratun in the feminine, as rûh can have either gender but the masculine is more appropriate here to refer to the Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]A Deobandi's Denial of Prophetic Attributes[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Another one of those of the same School considered by some to be knowledgeable objected to attributing the characteristics of hâdir nâzir to the Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, because, he claimed, these attributes belong to Allah U. Even if the latter premise were true, the reasoning is spurious and is like saying that because al-Ra’ûf and al-Rahîm are Divine Attributes, they cannot be also Prophetic Attributes. This sophistry was refuted by al-Qadi ‘Iyad in al-Shifa where he said: [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Know that Allah has bestowed a mark of honor on many of the Prophets by investing them with some of His names: for example He calls Ishaq and Isma‘il “knowing” (‘alîm) and “forbearing” (halîm), Ibrahim “for­bearing” (halîm), Nuh “thankful” (shakûr), Musa “noble” (karîm) and “strong” (qawî), Yusuf “a knowing guardian” (hafîz, ‘alîm), Ayyub “patient” (sabûr), ‘Isa and Yahya “devoted” (barr), and Isma‘il “truthful to the promise” (sâdiq al-wa‘d)... Yet He has preferred our Prophet Muhammad, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, since He has adorned him with a wealth of His names in His Mighty Book and on the tongue of His Prophets.[16][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The above evidence establishes beyond doubt that there is no impediment to the possibility of hâdir nâzir to be Attributes shared by Allah Most High with some of His servants if such two Names should be established to be His. In fact, it is known that the two angel-scribes, the qarîn, the angel of death, and Shaytan, are also present, seeing, hearing, and fully wit­nessing the deeds of human beings at any given time.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Furthermore, are Hâdir and Nâzir among the Divine Names and Attributes? Imam Ahmad al-Sirhindi was quoted to say: “Allah Most High is aware of each and every minor and major condition and is Hâdir and Nâzir. One should feel shame before Him.”[17][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]However, the Divine Attributes are ordained and non-inferable.[18] Logic, reasoning, analogy, and other forms of interpretation are not used to infer an attribute but only Divine disclosure through the primary two sources of the Shari‘a i.e. Qur’an and Sunna. This is an elementary point of doctrine that is present in most if not all books of ‘aqîda, including the Maturidi classics. So we cannot speak of al-Hâdir, while al-Nâzir is the same as al-Shahîd where the divine Sight means His Knowledge. Imam al-Bayhaqi said: [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The meaning of “The Witness” (al-Shahîd) is He Who is well aware of all that creatures can know only by way of witnessing while being present. . . because a human being who is far away is subject to the limitation and shortcomings of his sensory organs, while Allah Most High is not endowed with sensory organs nor subject to the limita­tions of those who possess them.[19] (Shâhid is also a Prophetic Name in the Qur’an.)[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]As for al-Hâdir it is precluded, because Hâdir in Arabic has the sense of a being physically present at a location, i.e. attributes of the created that are abso­lutely precluded from the Creator. Therefore Hâdir in relation to Allah Most High, like the attribute of omnipresence, may only be applied figura­tively to mean that He is All-Knowledgeable, but neither “Omnipresent” nor Hâdir have actually been reported or mentioned among the Divine Attributes in the Qur’an, the Sunna, and the texts of the early Imams. Allah knows best. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]When some of these rebuttals were presented to the above-mentioned objector, he replied verbatim, that “By Haazir and Naazir, we mean Allah’s knowledge is complete and comprehensive. Nothing is hidden from the abso­lute knowledge of Allah. In other words, he is Aleem and this quality of Allah is repeatedly mentioned in the Qur’aan.” By thus replying he has acknowledged that:[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]1. He used the Attributes Hâdir and Nâzir figuratively, to mean ‘Alîm.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]2. He has done so on the basis of his own interpretation of the former two terms as meaning the latter term, neither (a) on linguistic bases nor (b) according to a Law-based stipulation (nass shar‘î).[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]To return to the statement of Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi – Allah sanctify his soul – that “[He] is Hâdir and Nâzir,” there are also caveats:[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]1. Isolated statements cannot be used to invalidate a basic rule of Ahl al-Sunna in the Divine Names and Attributes, namely that spelled above as found in the doctrine of the Salaf and Khalaf on al-Asmâ’ wa al-Sifât.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]2. In practical terms, Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi was careful to frame his statement within an affirmation of the sincere murîd’s consciousness of the all-encompassing nature of Divine Knowledge within the ladder of spiritual process in the Naqshbandi Tarîqa, just as the Shuyukh of the Shadhili Tarîqa teach their murîds to say, “Allâhu hâdirî, Allâhu nâziri, Allâhu ma‘î.” These expressions are meant to induce scrupulous Godwariness and in fact all refer to the attributes of Divine Knowledge without any resemblance whatsoever to the hudûr or nazâr of created beings other than in name.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]3. In doctrinal terms, Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi means something other than what those who use hâdir in the Arabic language and in relation to the Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, mean. Namely, he means hâdir not in the normal creatural sense of “present” but in the non-creatural sense of “Divine Knowledge of Things in their Essence” (al-‘ilm al-hudûrî). This is explained by him at length in his epistle 48 of Volume Three to the Prince, Zadah Khwaja Muhammad Sa‘id, titled “The Secret of His Nearness and the Self-Disclosure of His Essence.” This is a highly peculiar, specialized sense that should be treated thus unless one is interested in making Shaykh Sirhindi say other than what he means.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]4. Some of our contemporaries – who are known by the title of Mufti – inno­vatively use the same phrase in terms of a stipulation of ‘Aqîda, giving rise to le­gitimate doubt as to what they mean by their use of the phrase, a doubt for­tified by their adding made-up provisions or conditions such as “Hâdir and Nâzir cannot be applied to anyone besides Allah.” By saying this they have invalidated the sine qua non pre-requisites of the judge for receiving wit­nesses to any and all cases that require witnesses. Rather, they mean to say, “cannot be applied to anyone besides Allah in the sense they are applied to Allah” while they can be applied to others besides Allah in the sense that applies to creatures.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]5. Those who use Hâdir and Nâzir in relation to the Best of Creatures, our Master Muhammad, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, , mean it in the creatural sense of his noble soul or noble essence being physically and spiritually present wherever Allah Most High wishes. One who denies that the Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, can be present in that sense, has left Islam.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]6. None of what the opponents bring up as supposed proofs actually invali­dates the use of Hâdir and Nâzir for the Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, among other shared Names as we have already demonstrated. For example, Allah Most High is Ra’ûf and Rahîm, and He is Nûr, and He is al-Shâhid – the Witness – and al-Shahîd – the Giver of testimony – all five attributes being also given by Him in His Own Pre-Eternal Speech – the Qur’an – to the Prophet himself, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]7. If it comes to scholarly quotations, they should accept that the attributes of Hâdir and Nâzir are applied to the Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, by the Ulema of Ahl al-Sunna such as Mulla Ali al-Qari as cited above, and countless others such as the Friends of Allah known to keep company with the Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, day and night, among them Shaykh Abu al-‘Abbas al-Mursi, Shaykh Abu al-Hasan al-Shadhili, and Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Aziz al-Dabbagh, probably also Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi himself – may Allah sanctify their secrets.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Ibn al-Qayyim said in al-Ruh: [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]This is a subject about which men are troubled. There are those who say, “The sciences, all of them, are latent in the soul, and only its occupation with the world of sensation prevents its examination of them; so, if it is detached in sleep, it see some of them in accordance with its preparation; and when its detachment by death is more perfect, its sciences and its experiential knowledges there are more perfect.” This statement has in it both what is right and what is groundless; not all of it is to be rejected and not all of it is to be accepted. For the detachment of the soul informs it of the sciences and experiential knowledges which are not received without detachment. But if it should be detached altogether, it would not be informed of the knowledge of Allah with which His Messenger was sent, and of the details of what He told by past messengers and peoples that are gone; and details of the Return and regulations of the Hour and details of command and prohibition, and Divine Names and Attributes and Acts, etc., that are not known except by Revelation; although the detachment of the soul is an aid to it for knowledge of that, and the drawing of it from its source is easier and nearer and greater than what is given to the soul engaged in the labors of the body.[20][/FONT]

    An example of this can be seen in the below thread which is very important to see how ilm e ghayb is denied for prophet ( sal allahu alayhi wa sallam) but the same ilm e ghayb is proved for deobandi maulvis! ( post 4)

    I have also found a statement in which it is clearly written that the body of ashraf ali thanvi became physical noor and left the state of "fleshhood"!

    Also other findings from deobandi books which will be insha Allah posted for the first time on internet.

    Note: All this is for those who sincerely want to come to ahlus sunnah wal jamah. Those who need "proof" and those who are ready to make a sincere effort to underdstand the true islam,please read these thread and make up your mind.

    Guidance is from AllaH alone.

    and following books are also in refutation of sarfaraz safdar álaihi mā álaihi and his son ábdulquddūs qārin who stood defending his father works. May Allah bless Mufti Muĥammed Khān Qādrī ĥafizhuLlah who shattered their poisonous and dodgy objections. Mufti Muĥmmed Khān Qādri refuted sarfaraz safdar's izalat al-rayb in five books dealing with each debate in a separate book.

    see, what deobandis and their sympathisers need to ask themselves is why? why have their scholars changed passages in books and why only those passages that mention the ranks of rasulAllah sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam?

    i would only delete passages or alter them if they were in praise of someone against whom i had a vendetta...

    imam baraylawi sums it up:

    wo habeeb pyaara to umr bhar, kare fayz o jood hi sar ba sar
    are tujh ko khaaye tape saqar, tere dil meiN kis se bukhaar hai?

    if these internet deobandis had an ounce of shame, they would openly disown this atrocity from safdar. if their allegiance was to rasulAllah and not safdar, they would come out straight away and announce their disgust at this act.

    but, they won't do it. we can sit here and say with certainty, these deobandis have more love for their mullas than rasulAllah sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam. if not, we challenge them to speak out against safdar and accept that he changed imam al-qari's book.

    awaiting the deobandi announcement against safdar...

    no doubt sarfaraz safdar gakkhaDvi wrote scores of books to defend putrid beliefs of his sect but Alĥamdulillah that our scholars have refuted all of his rubbish and fabrications in various books, some are already available on the net, see following links;

    Deobandis are truly a catastrophe for all..but especially for the Indo/Pak subcontinent..they always leave me utterly astonished at their two faced (munafiq) approach to Islamic belief and practice!!..truly shocking.
  11. AbdalQadir

    AbdalQadir time to move along! will check pm's.

    It's ironic some of them equate the Milad to celebrating the birth of krishna, when they have a very similar belief to those who believe in krishna - that of the possibility of lieing. (krishna lied, according to hindus' own accounts, for the non-subcontinentals)

    Funny world we live in.

    sh. gibril has mentioned this deobandi denial of prophetic attributes here.

    again, why are people so blind to this deobandi bias against the prophet sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam?

    so what if they have written scores of volumes in hadith and fiqh! shaytan has done millions of sujud and is more learned than any of these deobandis but he denied the reverence due to a prophet 'alaihis salam.

    wake up, ummah. where are your allegiances? to so called 'scholars' who have written a few books but deny well known prophetic attributes or to the mercy for the worlds?

    when it comes to their own mullas, they are the first to accept such miracles but they deny the very same for rasulAllah sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam. this is bughz. what face will deobandi's and their supporters and those who do not openly condemn them show to the dear prophet sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam in their graves?

    Deobandi fabrication in Sharah al-Shifa

    Mulla Ali al-Qari [d. 1014 AH ] writes:

    “If there is no-one in the house then say ‘as-salâmu ‘alâ al-Nabiyyi wa rahmatullâhi wa barakâtuh.’ because the soul of prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, is present in the house of the Muslims (ay li’anna rûhahu ‘alayhi al-salâmu hâdirun fî buyûti ahlal islam).

    [Sharah al- Shifa, Vol.2, p.118, published by Dar al-Kutub al-Ilmiyah, Lebanon]

    Since this statement from Mulla `Ali al-Qari is against wahabi-deobandi belief, the raees al muharrifeen ( chief fabricator) from the deobandi sect , Maulvi Srafaraz safdar Khan ( Gujranwala, Pakistan),while translating the Arabic quote into Urdu writes:

    as-salâmu ‘alâ al-Nabiyyi wa rahmatullâhi wa barakâtuh is (not) to be said because the soul of prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, is present in the house of the Muslims, rather by reciting as-salamu 'alayna wa'ala 'ibadillahis saliheen [Peace be on us and on all righteous slaves of Allah] it is meant the prophets and angels."

    [Mulla Ali al- Qari aur masla ilm ghayb wa hazir wa nazir, p.36, published by Maktaba Safdariyah Gujranwala, Pakistan]

    The deobandi maulvi wrote the correct Arabic text but fabricated the translation by adding extra “not” within the brackets, there by totally changing the meaning!

    This was not enough, so in another book the same maulvi fabricated the original Arabic quote itself!

    Maulvi Sarfaraza Khan al-deobandi writes:

    La li’anna rûhahu ‘alayhi al-salâmu hâdirun fî buyûti ahlal islam, he then translates this as:

    “This opinion is NOT correct that the soul of the prophet sal allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is present in the house of the muslims”

    [Tabrid al-Nawazir, p.167 and 168, published by Maktaba Safdariyah Gujranwala, Pakistan]

    By inserting that additional word “not” (La in Arabic) maulvi Sarfaraz safadar al-deobandi has given the exact opposite meaning and shown his hatred towards the love and respect of prophet sal allahu alayhi wa sallam.

    Indeed this is the fabrication of the highest order!

    To legalize his fabrication he writes further:

    “In some copies the word “La” is missing!

    We ask these fabricators to produce any manuscript or printed copy of Sharah al –Shifa of Mulla Ali al-Qari to prove their claim!

    The truth is there is no such “la” in any manuscript or printed copy of Sharah al -Shifa.
