Q: I have a question regarding beheshti zewar… In the introduction there is something written about prediction of the birth of Ml. Ashraf Ali Thanvi and he should be named Ali etc. And his brother would be evil. Is this true? Isn’t it shirk? No one knows about the future except Allah.. So what about this story?
A: This is baseless.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
