Hakeemul-Ummat on Najaat (Salvation)

Hakeemul-Ummat Hadrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah Alayhi):

“While it is quite correct that Najaat (salvation) in Aakhirah pivots on correctness of Beliefs (Aqaa`id), it is erroneous to entertain the idea that only correctness of Aqaa`id is sufficient for total and immediate Najaat in the Aakhirah. Correctness of Belief is a requisite for ultimate Najaat. Similarly, some people labor under the notion that only Muhabbat (love) for Rasoolullah (SAW) is sufficient for Najaat, and that as a result of the proclamation of such love the questioning in the grave and the reckoning in the Aakhirah will be waived. Such a belief is utterly baseless.

The only way of Najaat is the one way mentioned by the Qur`aan:

“Follow the Path of those who turn towards Me (Allah).”

This refers primarily to the Sahaabah, then to the Ulama-e-Haqq and the Auliyaa-e-Kiraam. There is no other way of attaining Najaat.”
