Salam (Fortunate is the one who is mannered and unfortunate is the one who is ill-mannered) Isn’t he the most ignorant of all who bears the concept that the Durood (Salutation) to Enlightened Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam is conveyed through Angles and Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam himself does not hear? Jibra’il Alaihis Salam said “now I can’t go beyond the Sidrath ul Munthaha Ya Rasoolullah! now beyond this you have to go because I am not like you” Jibr’ail Alaihis Salam said that Ya Rasoolullah I am not like you but the so called Moulavis say that Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam is like us. So what is the ruling about them whose big moulavi in his book Thaqwiyathul Eeman, and I say that is a kithab which removes one’s Eeman, writes that the Ilm of Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam is equalant to the Ilm of Shaithan Ma’azallah! How can such a Moulavi claim himself to be a Muslim?
الجواب حامدا و مصلیا
The doctrine of the Ahl e Sunnath Wal Jama’ath is that Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam is alive in his blessed Rowdhah and his this life is far above and aloft from the normal worldly life. Therefore it is understood from Ahadees e Mubaraka that Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam himself listens and answers if a person reads Durood Shareeef in the presence of Rowdha e Shareef and if a person sends Durood Shareef from a distant place, Allah Rabbul Izzath delivers it to Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam through the angels. (Narrated in Mishkaath page87 from Baihaqi, page 86 from Nasa’i and Daarami)
Now let it be clearly understood that according to the precise proclamations of Qur’an Majeed and explicit explanations of the books of doctrines and concepts, among the Ulama e Deoband of Ahl e Sunnath Wal Jama’ath Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alalihi wa Sallam is Human, and, being a Human is a cause for the excellence and nobility of Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam although as for the dignity, he is the most supreme of all the Makhlooqaath (Creations), further, after Allah Thabaraka wa Tha’ala, status is for him and refusing this fact is a clear refusal of Nusoos- the unchallengeable evidences of Qur’an and Sunnath and considering the status of (Bashar) human being inferior than the status of (Mala’ikah) angels is based on nothing but ignorance. (Sura e Kahf ayat 110, Mishkaath page 511)
As for the Book of Thaqwiyathul Eeman, it was authored by Muhyis Sunnah, Qathiul Bid’ah Shah Muhammad Ismail Shaheed Nawwarallhu Marqadahu, an excellent and outstanding book in establishing Towheed and refuting Bid’aath (Innovations). And the words which are raised in objection by the questioner who even prepares to call him Kafir based on them are not at all available in it, rather it is a clear distortion from Ahl e Bid’ath and has no connection what so ever with the reality. It is necessary for the questioner to refer the book IBAARAATH E AKAABIR authored by Hadhrath Allama Moulana Sarfaraz Khan Safdar Sahib which would Insha allah benefit him in clearing of his doubts.
Allah knows best.
