Objections of Faza’il-e-Amaal and their Answers


All praise is due to Allah Ta’ala who through his infinite mercy and wisdom revealed the glorious Qur’aan for the guidance of mankind. Peace and salutations be showered on Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) who was sent as a practical example of eternal success in this world as well as the hereafter.

It was always the system of Allah Ta’ala that he had chosen his special slaves in every era for the protection, spreading and upliftment of his Deen. Whilst the forces of Baatil (falsehood) would strive to mislead people, Allah Ta’ala chose the great Muhadditheen, Mufassireen and Ulama who would make an all out effort to shun away the evil of such misleading people. It is no surprise that even in our present day and age, there are many such people whose sole purpose and object is to confuse, complicate and puzzle the minds of the ordinary masses. They will make big claims and call themselves whatever they wish to, but alas! Their aim and target is to corrupt the beliefs of people, so as to leave them in utter bewilderment. Such beliefs which have been clearly and explicitly expounded by Allah Ta’ala in the Qur’aan and which have been explained to us in the Ahaadith by Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam), but alas! Not only do they deny such beliefs, instead they wish to brainwash the minds of others to fall into the trap that they have been mislead into (may Allah Ta’ala guide and save us all, Aameen)

With regards to the specific question under discussion, there seems to have stemmed up a group of people who are trying to mislead everyone into believing that the book Fadhaail-e-Aamal entails ‘baseless stories’ and ‘corrupted beliefs’. Written by a great renown researched scholar and luminary of our recent times, this is not just an attack on the book itself, but more on us as Muslims and our beliefs.

In the relevant question at hand, the objector has extracted 4 quotations from the Kitaab, Fadhaail-e-Aamal. Thereafter, the objector, in essence has trounced upon 3 major beliefs, i.e. a) The existence of Abdaals, b) The reality of Kashf or Ilhaam, c) The inhabitants of the grave possessing the ability to see and hear the living. The objector wishes to deceive the public into believing that these are baseless and corrupt beliefs and it is hence deduced therefrom that Fadhaail-e-Aamal promotes misguidance and deviant stories.

Hereunder, we will discuss each one of these 3 beliefs in detail with proofs from the Qur’aan, Hadith and other sources to prove that these are beliefs which have been clearly expounded and supported by the Qur’aan, Hadith and the great Ulama and Muhadditheen.

We would also expose the fact that many such incidents and quotations have been recorded by other illustrious scholars so as to prove that it was due to ignorance that these objections were made. An Arabic proverb states, ‘A man always opposes something which he is ignorant of.’

Continue to read:

1. The Existence of Abdaals
2. The Reality of Kashf
3. Inhabitants of the Grave

The following is the original piece of the objectors:

Bismillah Ar-Rahmaan Ar-RaheemAs-Salaam Alaikum wa Rahmatallahi wa-Barakatuhu

Are there Baseless Stories in the Fazaail Aamal that harm the Aqeedah (Beliefs)?

QUOTE 1: Moulana Zakariyah mentions in Fazaail-e-Hajj, “Once one of the Abdaal met Khidr and inquired from him whether he had ever met anyone among the saints whom he considered higher in rank than himself. To this he replied, ‘Yes, I have. I was present once in the Masjid in Medina, where I saw Hazrat Shaikh Abdur Razzak directing Hadeeth to his students. On one side was a young man sitting with his head bent on his knees. I went to him and addressed him thus, ‘do you not see the gathering listening to the words of Rasoolullah. Why do you not join them?’ Without lifting up his head or turning in my direction the youth answered: “Over there you see those who listen to the Hadeeth from the mouth of Abdur-Razzak (the slave of the sustainer), while over here you see him who listens to Hadeeth directly from Ar-Razzak (Allah).” Khidr said to him, “If what you say is true then you should be able to tell me who I am. Who am I?” He lifted up his head and said, ‘If my intuition does not fail me then you are Khidr.’ Hazrat Khidr said, “From that I realized that among the saints of Allah there are such who are so exalted in rank that I cannot recognize them.”

[Fazaail-e-Aamaal, Virtues of Hajj, (Eng. Trans.), Chapter.9, story no.9, p.171, (New Edition 1982, Published by Dini Book Depot – Delhi).]

NOTE: The Deobandi translator of Ikhmaalush Shiyaam defines an Abdaal saying, “Abdaal are a class of Awliya whose identities remain concealed. They possess miraculous powers and execute a variety of tasks under Divine Command in various places of the world.” (Astagfir-Allah) [Ikhmaalush Shiyaam (Eng. Trans.) p.59.]

This Deviant Story Promotes that the false belief that someone can receive knowledge directly from Allah without the mediation of the Messenger (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) and to receive knowledge from Allah is something specific for the Messengers. This store make this so-called Abdaal equal to Prophet Moosa (alaihis-salam) and our Messenger Muhammed (sallaallahu alaihe wa-sallam) who spoke directly to Allah.


QUOTE 2: Allah says in the Quraan, “Verily! Allah, with Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the womb. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware.” [Soorah Luqman (31): 34]But the Fazaail Aamal says, “Abul Husain Maliki says that he associated with Shaikh Khair Nurbaf for several years. The Shaikh said to him, eight days before his death. ‘I shall die on Thursday evening, at the time of Maghrib Salaat, and I shall be buried on Friday after Jumuah Salaat.” Although, he advised me not to forget, but I forgot about it and, on Friday morning, a man told me about the Shaikh’s death. I immediately went to his place… asked people the details of the Shaikh’s experience of death. A person… narrated to me that the Shaikh swooned for a while just before Maghrib Salaat. Then, he recovered somewhat and said to someone in the corner of the room, who was invisible to others, ‘Stop for a while; you have been commanded to do a thing and I have been commanded to do a thing. That which you are commanded to do (viz. to take my life) will not escape you, but that which I am commanded to do (viz. to observe Maghrib Salaat) will escape me. Let me do as I am commanded.” He then called for water, made a fresh Wudhu and performed Maghrib Salaat. After this, he laid himself on the bed, closed his eyes and gave up his life.”[Fazaail-e-Aamaal, (Eng. Trans.) Virtues of Charity, Chapter.6, p.609, (2nd South African Impression 1414-1993. Published by Waterval Islamic Institute)]This Deviant Story Promotes that certain individuals know the place and time of their death and even make the Angel of Death wait until they have finished their prayers.


QUOTE 3: Moulana Zakariyah mentions in Fazaail-e-Aamaal, Shaikh Abu Yazeed Qurtabi heard from someone that whoever recited it (the Kalimah: La-ilaha ill-Allah-ho) seventy thousand times he or she would be immune from the fire of the Hell. He completed a course accordingly for his wife and many other courses for himself. There lived a youth nearby who, it was said was ‘a man of Kashf’ and had the foreknowledge of the events of Paradise and Hell. One day it so happened that while sharing a meal with him he suddenly made a loud cry and began to gasp, and exclaimed that his mother had been cast into Hell (burning into the fire of Hell). Shaikh Qurtabi keenly observed the condition of the youth and decided to offer a course for his mother secretly so that the fact that the youth possessed a foreknowledge of the Unseen and the truth of his mother’s sad plight in Hell would be ascertained. The Shaikh said that he did it so secretly that nobody could knew it, except the Almighty, Allah. But the youth soon expressed his gratitude and said that now his mother had got rid of the Fire of Hell.

[See, Fazaail-e-Aamaal, (Eng. Trans.), Virtues of Dhikr , Chapter.3 (Part – 3), p.59 (Edt. 1985, Published by Dini Book Depot – Delhi).]In this Deviant Story, the knowledge of the conditions of Paradise and Hell-Fire and the knowledge of future events is claimed for the so-called ‘man of Kashf’. He is also aware of the matters between Allah and his slaves, and therefore shows gratitude to Shaikh Qurtubi, even though Shaikh Qurtubi “did it so secretly that nobody could know it, except the Almighty, Allah.”


QUOTE 4: “Hazrat Ibn Jalaa relates, “While in Medina I once suffered tremendous hunger. It became so unbearable that I presented myself at the grave of Rasoolullah and said, “O Rasoolullah, I suffer great hunger. I am now your guest.” Thereafter, sleep overtook me and in a vision, I saw Rasoolullah give me a piece of bread. I ate half of it, and when I woke up, I found myself with the other half of that piece of bread still in my hands.”

[Fazaail-e-Aamaal, (Eng. Trans.), Virtues of Hajj, Chapter.9, story no.23, p.178, (New Edition 1982, Published by Dini Book Depot –Delhi)]Yet in another story, three men fasted for days on end since they could not find food. One of them went to the grave of Rasoolullah and said: “O Rasoolullah hunger has overtaken us.” Soon afterwards … “a man from Alawi family knocked at the door. We opened the door and found a man with two servants, each one carrying a large basket with many delicious foods.” The man from the Alawi family said before leaving, “You have complained about hunger to Rasoolullah. I have seen Rasoolullah in a dream and he commanded me to bring food to you.”

[Fazaail-e-Aamaal, (Eng. Trans.), Virtues of Hajj, Chapter.9, p.177, story no.22, (New Edition 1982. Published by Dini Book Depot – Delhi). Similar stories have been mentioned on p.179 (story no.27) and p.181 (story no.29)]

“Once a group of Arabs went to visit the grave of a very generous person and stayed there for the night. One of them in a dream saw the man of the grave who asked him to sell his camel for his Bakhti camel (Bakhti is a good kind of camel). The man agreed and the man of the grave stood and slaughtered the camel. When the man woke up, he found it bleeding. He slaughtered it and distributed the meat. When the group returned then at a stage, a man came riding a Bakhti camel and enquired whether among them was a man of such and such name. The man who saw the dream came forward and said he was that man. The man related his dream. The camel rider said the man of the grave was his father and he had directed him in a dream to give this camel to him. He gave the animal to the man and went away.”

Fazaail-e-Aamaal, (Eng. Trans.), Virtues of Charity, Chapter.7, story no.16, p.193, (New Edition 1982, Published by Dini Book Depot – Delhi).These Stories teach that the inhabitants of the graves can help the living. This belief forms the basis for Grave Worshipping. The Fazaail-e-Aamaal promotes all these erroneous beliefs under the guise of virtues and exhortation. Those who expose themselves to the teachings of Fazaail-e-Aamaal which include believing that the engraved can hear, see and help the living, will undoubtedly weaken their Tawheed and establish hope in other than the One, Who Alone has the Power to benefit and harm.Given the claim of the Jamaat Tableegh that it reaches out to people, who are totally unaware of the religion, reading such stories from the Fazail Aamal to them will play havoc with their beliefs and further corrupt their religion.———————————————————–

So dear readers four quotes from the Fazaail Aamal have been mentioned and you can see for yourself the deviation in these stories that are being spread amongst Muslims. Furthermore it is not a co-incidence that these beliefs are in the Fazaail Aamal, rather each one of the misguided views is a well-established belief of the Deobandis – the school of thought that the Tableeghi Jamaat originates from. This has been shown with ample proofs. please refer to the online book, The JAMAAT TABLEEGH and the Deobandis – A Critical analysis of their Beliefs, Books and Dawah

    Check your e-Mails, I’ve send you his e-mail adress. Sorry it took so long.

    Btw. I deleted all his comments (and unfornuatley of others as well – most of them wouldn’t have made any sense any longer), since I found out that he was just on a mission of converting people to Salafism.

    I don’t want to be blamed at the Day of Judgement for leading people to false ideologies.

    Many Ulema-e-Haqq have proven falsehood in Salafism before. Search for it and you’ll find.

    I found out that these stories are also related by other accepted Imams and Ulama. In this case these incidents were related by Ibn Jawzi (RA)

    Abu al-Khayr al-Aqta` said: “I entered the city of Allah’s Messenger and I was in material need. I stayed five days without eating anything. I came toward the grave and said Salam to the Prophet and to Abu Bakr and `Umar then said: “I am your guest tonight, O Allah’s Messenger!” I then stepped aside and slept behind the Minbar. I saw the Prophet in my dream, with Abu Bakr to his Right, `Umar to his left, and `Ali in front of him. `Ali shook me and said, “Get up, Rasullullah is coming.” I got up and kissed him between his eyes; he gave me a loaf of bread, I ate half of it; when I woke up I found half a loaf in my hand.”

    (Ibn al-Jawzi Muthir Al-Gharam Al-Sakin Ila Ashraf Al-Amakin)

    (al-hafiz) Abu Bakr al-Minqari said: I was with (al-hafiz) al-Tabarani and (al-hafiz) Abu al-Shaykh in the Prophet’s Mosque, in some difficulty. We became very hungry. That day and the next we didn’t eat. When it was time for `isha, I came to the Prophet’s grave and I said: “O Messenger of Allah, we are hungry, we are hungry” (ya rasullallah al-ju` al-ju`)! Then I left. Abu al-Shaykh said to me: Sit. Either there will be food for us, or death. I slept and Abu al-Shaykh slept. al-Tabarani stayed awake, researching something. Then an `Alawi (a descendant of `Ali) came knocking at the door with two boys, each one carrying a palm-leaf basket filled with food. We sat up and ate. We thought that the children would take back the remainder but they left everything behind. When we finished, the `Alawi said: O people, did you complain to the Prophet? I saw him in my sleep and he ordered me to bring something to you.

    Ibn al-Jawzi Kitab al-Wafa (p. 818 #1536)

  7. Aslam says:

    Why do we all put our selfs in sects sayin we sunni sayin we tabliki.can we all just say we muslim and just follow the QURAAN and the Hadith from the book of bughari which we know is true..lets just leave out all these other kitaabs written by men..why are we reading other kitaabs wen we still havent read the whole of english QURAAN…would ALLAH be pleased with us by doing this?..

  8. mohamed ibrahim says:

    Assalam brothers why do you get in all misconception about fazail amal better ask ALLAH by offering istaqara namaz . if that book is right and you are wrong you will get in trouble on judgement day assalam walaikum

  9. kifayat says:

    hummmm…
    its old topic…….
    no one can out of mistake….
    but maulana zakariya’s wrong work is to write a book on imam maududi (ra).he(maulana zakariya) should respect his work for islam .it is not true and good thinking that any one who does not seek knowledge from deoband or other places etc then he will not a aalim e deen.as deobandi ulema think about syed maududi (ra).syed maududi was not against to ulema deoband he only stuggled for islam and quran .
    see his whole life , he does not claim to any ulema deoband. and people know he was editor of aljamia news paper which represent ulema e deoband.his point of view was change with deoband ulema when they all with congress…

  10. nabeel says:

    by considering you correct…if maududi was an aalim…so here an aalim is writing / commenting on another aalim i.e. maulana zakariya (ra)…and in ur post a non-aalim (i.e. you) is commenting / writing on an aalim (i.e. on Maualana zakariya (ra.))…

    Remember, Ulema-e-Deen have a high status in islam….as per one of the hadith of saw that those who do not respect ulema are not amongst us…

    may Allah save us from this waeed…aamin

  11. abdul says:

    yes your are right my brother we have to respct the ulema and by the way do you know the hadith of rasulallah (swas) that most of the ulema are in the hel fire… and i think these type of ulema which do not practise the quran and hadith rather than the fiqq of their sheiks and their teachers and imams… which contradicts the quran and hadith…. LEAVE IT for it… it is good for you and its enough for you…..kitab ALlah and sunnat e rasul allah (swas)

  12. ahmed says:

    u r foolish not see the truth.
    if u do not stop to criticizing on syed maududi then u r also in wrong way…
    ulema deoband is own their place and syed sahab is their own place.

  13. kifayat says:

    mr nabeel should read islamic books bcz he is going to over
    i should b wrong and u also should b wrong but we r muslims.if we make the diffrences on small issues then kuffar will strong against us.thats why next time i will not come to that site and will not coment on any topic.my thinking is so differ from u.although i love to ulema deoband but i love to imam maududi i cant read or listen the wrong about him.so thts y i m goinG WASSALAM U ALAIKUM.

  14. kifayat says:

    I ALso read the books of deoband ulema like fazail e aamal, i read many books of maulana ashraf ali,
    i m not against them
    ALLAH hafiz

  15. asma says:

    asslamoiliakum,
    i am a student of Quran and i finished 21 para and some fiqh books also uptil now i dont find much things for which we have to make seprate sectors i mean Quran guides you on every aspect so very simple study Quran and sunnah first 99 percent problems solved.on rest 1 percent let peaple fight and make sevtors Allah subhano talla will tell on day of judgment who was right who was wrong.my message COME BACK TO ORIGINAL SOURCE QURAN AND SUNNAH .ASSLAMOILIKUM

  16. Abukhalid says:

    Asalamualaikum,
    I am not sure what exactly is the problem. Seems like, there are baseless stories in Fadhail-Amal and some of the other books like Ornamental Jewels. Why are we fighting about that? If there are baseless stories in those books then don’t read them. Sit with a Sheikh Of Hadith, who will teach you Tafseer of Quran and Hadith then once you have spend your time in that. By all means go and debate about the Fiqh. Noone here is going to change their mind about what they believe and its useless and waste of time to keep on debating about it. May Allah(subhanahu wataala) protect us from the fitna. Who is Zakariya, a mere human being who can make mistake and if he has made mistakes that is his case with Allah (subhanahu wataala). The people can make up their own choices based on, if Allah (subhanahu watala) will them to be guided or not.
    Waasalamualaikum

    to @True Life :

    asslamalaikum

    u said u deleted comments because it did not match with your beliefs ,but did those match with quran and sunnah??

    no doubt tabligi is doin gr8 work to promote islam,but does it know islam first??–an islam derived from works of imams, mawlanas and not quran and sunnah??

    its so bad to see muslims of tabligi jamat rejecting sahih hadith of the prophet saw ,they dont realize how grave its in the sight of allah swt

    also why in deobandi masjids there is no books of hadith like muslim,tirmizi,bukhari etc kept??
    why hide the hadiths from the ummah?

    u can see any debate between deobandi and ahlehadith\salafi\quran sunnah on youtube ;
    inshallah truth will be clear! coz truth always triumphs

  20. Abid says:

    Dear Brothers & sisters,
    Some of the questions arises in my mind on this issue, if anybody can help then i will be grateful to them.(1)Quran is an authentic book declared by Allah, Ahadith are authentic (Bukhari & Muslim), Which are given references of noble sahabas,then who takes the authenticity of other books. (2)By following quran and Ahadith we can succeed our lives here & hereafter, then what is the need of other books.(3)allah says ,I made quran simple for you, then why we r not trying to understand the book. Americans are purchasing the book understanding & accepting Islam, then what is the wrong with us. (4) Our Allah is one,Our book is one,Our prophet to whome we follow is one,then how can we ummah be one without holding their teachings & principles. Hope you people take my questions positively & try to answer,this is for ourselves but not to satisfy our ego.Thanks—Your Brother

  21. Abid says:

    Dear Brother and sisters,
    First we should have the urge to seek the correct knowledge, then Allah will help us, If we feel what i am thinking is only right, and my ideology alone is right , then our eyes becomes blind and we can see the right path. So first try to understand what others are saying, may it be correct or wrong then you decide your actions.
    for further discussions you may be please contact: mohiuddinabid@gmail.com, Thanks

  24. khan says:

    assalamu alaikum everyone

    The thing is ..
    All this stories in Fazail-e-amaal is related to “TOUHEED” Directly or indirectly, So why don’t we clear or define the rules of Touheed, Hadit, Sunnat, Taqlid, Ejma. we must know all of this things before comments and taking any decision about Ulma-e-Deobend, fiqah and ghair muqallid.

  25. taha says:

    Mr.Khan, The points you r highlighted above, is it not cleared in quran?, i think u keep your eyes shut and trying to see outside world.

  26. AbdusSalaam says:

    Dearly respected brothers. If you read the fazail e amal you will find that the hadiths included are acknowledged in their source as in Muslim Bukhari Tirmidhi and so it is in reality a compilation of hadiths from the accepted classical books of Hadith. So what can be so wrong about that.
    Few of us unfortunately have the time to read and even own all of Bukhari’s work let alone the other books so the compellation are there so that we humble Muslims can grasp some guidance from all the above mentioned books.

  27. troy says:

    The above quotes from the book fazail-e-aamal,on which someone objects are totally baseless objections, which can only be made to misguide people in the name of quran and hadith or the objections can also be due to lack of knowledge or half knowledge,so to not get misguided always take the knowledge from the one who is authentic and knows well and will explain u quran n hadith in the way sahaba understood and not by the the way who r showing u quran n hadith in their own way n doing objection on the book fazail-e-aamal…..

  32. Abu Owais al britaini says:

    Excellent information, this book is full of fabricated soothsayer stories and miss quotes of hadith. E.g one night in the path of Allah is equivalent to 1000 nights. The Hadith implies jihad the t.j. Call this sleeping in masjids for 3 months reading from baseless books as the true path. This is destroying houses as the men are out for months and their houses are destroyed, the wife’s and children are acting upon kuffar and immoral acts. There hasn’t been a single scholar since they started 90 years ago.

  33. Abu Owais al britaini says:

    The t.j will rather you become a barelvi as they are both the same in aqeeda. Never quote hadith to them as you will be labelled a Salafi. They will never go to the house of non Muslims, their dawah is to convert you to 40 days,3 months etc. Go on disability allowance,abandon your kids as they advice. Ask them about Palestine,Kashmir,Iraq,Chechnya, and they are lost, their jihad is to convert barelvis to their masaajids

  34. abu ayaan says:

    brother abu owais you are right although deobandis also came for barelwis there was no deobandi before 1857 it was barelwis only and it is true they are least bother of jihad which is sixth part of imaan as per quran and sunnah.

    Fazail-e-A’mal

    A brief introduction:

    This kithab was compiled by Hazrath Shaikh Zakariya (Rahimahullah). It consists of Aayaats of the Quran, Ahadith, stories of the Sahabah and stories of the pious predecessors that explain the virtues of good deeds. The object of the book is to encourage the Muslims on doing good deeds, and not to explain any ruling of Shari’ah. Shaikh Zakariya (Rahimahullah) was not the first to write a kithab of this manner, but the likes of this kithab have been written by the authors of the past, like Kithab-u-Zuhd by Abdullah bin Mubarak (Rahimahullah), Fadhaiulul Quran by Imam Shafi’ (Rahimahullah), Al Adabul Mufrad by Imam Bukhari (Rahimahullah), Al Targheeb Wal Tarheeb by Ibnul Qayyim Munziri (Rahimahullah), etc.

    The role of Fazail-e-A’mal in Tableegh Jama’at

    It is a total misconception that Fazail-e-A’mal is the guide book of Tableegh Jama’at. This book only consists of the virtues of good deeds. The concept of Tableegh Jama’at was not derived from this book, nor is the jama’at dependant on this book to do the work of tableegh. They thought it necessary to stipulate such a book that would encourage people towards good deeds, and this book served the purpose; therefore, the people who join this work are advised to stipulate a specific time for the reading of this book. However, it is not compulsory upon each an every person who joins this effort to read this book. Many of the Arabs who are doing this effort chose to read Riyadu-s-Saliheen instead, and they are allowed to carry on with this work. Similarly, Riyadu-s-Saliheen is also read in many of the masjids in Colombo on certain days of the week. Therefore, it is totally incorrect to regard this book as the guide book of Tableegh Jama’at.

    Some objections made against Fazail-e-A’mal:

    1.A common comment made against Fazail-e-A’mal is that some of the narrations mentioned in it are weak and fabricated. This comment is not totally correct, as there are no fabricated narrations in this book. There are dha’eef (weak) narrations in Fazail-e-A’mal. However, it is important to point out that the word dha’eef, literally translated as ‘weak’, is a terminology and should not be understood in its general sense. Its application is based on the rules explained in the sciences of hadith. Moreover, weak narrations are not acceptable only in regards to aqeedah and the rulings of Islamic jurisprudence. Majority of the scholars have accepted weak narrations as far as virtues of good deeds are concerned. Even Imam Bukhari (Rahimahullah) has brought weak narrations in his book, Al Adabul Mufrad, which shows that he also accepts weak narrations in regards to virtues of good deeds.

    2.Some scholars claim that there are such narrations in Fazail-e-A’mal, especially in Fazail-e-Durood, that prove that the author had beliefs of shirk and believed in the Omnipresence of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). These are false allegations made against the author, who was one of the most prominent scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah.

    Firstly, such allegations are made mostly by Arab scholars, who are unaware of the difference between the Deobandis and the Barelwis. They regard both these groups to be one, as both of them are from , and attribute the beliefs of Barelwis to the Deobandis. It is some of the Barelwis who believe in grave-worshipping and the Omnipresence of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and these beliefs have been attributed to the Deobandis. Some of these Arab scholars, like Shaikh Ibn Uthaymeen (Rahimahullah), retracted from what they said after the actual situation was explained to them.

    Secondly, the author has mentioned references for each and every narration or incident he has mentioned. Therefore, any comments regarding these narrations or incidents should be attributed to the author of the reference provided, as Shaikh Zakariya (Rahimahullah) has absolved himself by giving the reference.

    Thirdly, most of the incidents mentioned in Fazail-e-Durood are of pious predecessors. It is incorrect to say that these are fabricated Ahadith, as the word Hadith is used for the sayings of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). It is also incorrect to confirm the beliefs of the author through these incidents, as the object of the author was only to emphasise on the virtues of durood mentioned in them.

    Moreover, most of the incidents mentioned are dreams, and no rulings of Shari’ah can be derived from dreams. It is farfetched to confirm someone’s faith from a dream, of another person, mentioned in his kithab.

    Lastly, most of the copies of Fazail-e-A’mal do not have Fazail-e-Durood attached to them, and it is not considered as part of the kithab-reading stipulated by the Tableegh Jama’at.

    3.It is incorrect to compare the Shias, Qadiani, etc. with Tableegh Jama’at as we have clarified above that Tableegh Jama’at is not based on the narrations of Fazail-e-A’mal; and none of the narrations of Fazail-e-A’mal are fabricated.

    To end thereof, one should not be misguided with all the false accusations on this jama’at, but rather look at how the Ummah has benefited through this jama’at. We should always supplicate to Allah Ta’ala to show us the right path and save us from the misguidance of Shaitan. Moreover, we should always bear in mind that the pious and the learned amongst the Ummah cannot be unanimous upon something that is false or not part of Islam, as Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has mentioned:

    إن الله لا يجمع أمتي أو قال أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم على ضلالة ويد الله مع الجماعة ومن شذ شذ إلى النار

    Allah Ta’ala will not unite the Ummah of Muhammed (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) upon misguidance. Allah’s help is with majority. Whoever deviates from them will be thrown into the fire of Jahannum.
    Sunan Al Tirmizi Vol.2 Pg.39 (H.M. Sa’eed Company)

    A thought provoking act

    How will one account for the many thousands of people all around the world, Arabs and non-Arabs, and of all works of life, be they great Ulama, Muftis, intellectuals or professionals, to be associated with this noble work. They all cannot be wrong. They must have encountered something positive in this work for them to be part of it. The solution is, come within and see for yourself.
    And Allah knows best

    Introduction

    In the present day climate it is often opined that the usage of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth is forbidden in Islam and there is a genuine move amongst certain circles to purge the Hadeeth collection of Weak (Da’ef) narrations. Although the opinions and Fatawa of certain Scholars (of the past and present) can be presented in support of this position (of discouragement) towards the usage of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth, nevertheless there exists an overwhelming majority of Islamic Scholars (from Salaf & Khalaf) who not only permitted its usage but their publications contained these (i.e. Weak Narrations) in abundance. Furthermore from the opinions and practises of the Ulama of the past we can also glean that usage of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth is preferred over Qiyas (deduction/analogy) and in matters where no Authentic Narration exists.
    In this small endeavour Insha’Allah the opinion of Ulama who have permitted such a usage will be listed along with famous works which have historically contained Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth.

    It may be argued by some that shouldn’t Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth be avoided anyways? The answer is that if it was good enough for the Masters of Hadeeth, Kibar Ulama and Muhadeetheen to use it and no attempt was made to purge the Hadeeth collection of their existence, then why should it be attempted by us? The actions of Ulama (of the past) will make it clear that it is not a crime to use weak Ahadeeth, provided that rules set forth by the Muhadeetheen are followed.

    Finally we present the examples of Imam Bukhari (RA) in “Al Adab Al Mufrad” and Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah’s book “Alkalimut-Tayyib” which both contains many weak Ahadeeth the case in point being that Ameerul-Muhadetheen Imam Bukhari (RA) was the Master of Hadeeth and clearly knew the difference between Authentic (Saheeh) and Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth YET he chose to use the later in a book of Fadhail (virtues); Al Adab Al Mufrad is read, taught and practised by the Ummah for generations with the full knowledge that it contains Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth, although attempts have been made to “purge” the book from its Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth but the original manuscript is still widely available and used. Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah’s book “Alkalimut-Tayyib” has been revised by Shaykh Al-Albani (RA) as “Saheeh (Authentic) Alkalimut-Tayyib” & “Da’ef (Weak) Alkalimut-Tayyib”, nevertheless the original manuscript remains in vogue.

    Usage of Weak Hadeeth in Injunctions when nothing Authentic is found (First Case):

    Before discussing the subject at hand, it would be prudent to record the opinion of Ulama over the permissibility of usage of Weak Ahadeeth in matters of Ahkaam (Injunctions).

    Istadlaal from weak Ahadeeth is permissible (over Qiyas) in injunctions as long as:

    a) The weakness is not extreme or severe i.e. liars and fabricators are not present in the chain

    b) There is no other strong evidence present

    Imam Abu Haneefa (RA) [80AH -148AH] and the Hanafiyah:

    1) Weak Narration from Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) is superior to Qiyas.

    Source: Almuhalla Li Ibn Hazm (RA) (3/61)

    2) The Hadeeth concerning laughing aloud during Salah is weak as per the consensus of Muhadeetheen, yet Imam Abu Haneefa (RA) preferred it to Qiyas

    Source: A’alamal Mawqieen (1/31-32)

    3) The hadeeth stating “Most menstrual cycles are 10 days” is weak as per the consensus of Muhadeetheen, yet Hanafees have preferred it to Qiyas
    Source: A’alamal Mawqieen (1/31-32)

    4) The hadeeth stating “There is no Meh’r (dowry) less then 10 Dirhams” is weak as per the consensus of Muhadeetheen, yet Hanafees have preferred it to Qiyas

    Source: A’alamal Mawqieen (1/31-32)

    5) Imam Ibn Himaam (RA) states that Istadlaal from weak Ahadeeth is proven as long as the narration is not a fabrication.

    Source: Fathul-Qadeer-Babun-Nawafil (2/139)

    Imam Malik (RA) [93AH -179AH] and Malikiyah:

    1) Mursal (which is weak according to Jamhoor of Muhadeetheen) of a trustworthy person is valid as proof and as justification for a practice, just like a musnad hadith.

    Source: Yusuf b. ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Abdul Barr, Tajrid al- Tamhid lima fi l-Muwatta’ min al-Asanid (Cairo, 1350), 1:2.

    Imam Shaf’ae (RA) [150AH -204AH] and Shaffiyyah:

    1) He has discussed this issue in detail in his al-Risalah; he requires the following conditions to be met before accepting a mursal hadith:

    1. In the narrative, he requires that one of the following conditions be met: that it be reported also as musnad through another isnad; that its contents be reported as mursal through another reliable source with a different isnad; that the meaning be supported by the sayings of some Companions; or that most scholars hold the same opinion as conveyed by the mursal hadith.

    2. Regarding the narrator, he requires that one of the following conditions be met: that he be an elder Successor; that if he names the person missing in the isnad elsewhere, he does not usually name an unknown person or someone not suitable for reporting from acceptably; or that he does not contradict a reliable person when he happens to share with him in a narration
    Source: For the discussion in detail, see al-Shafi’i, al-Risalah (ed. Ahmad Shakir, Cairo, 1358/1940, pp. 461-470;\ English translation: M. Khadduri, 2nd ed., Islamic Texts Society, Cambridge, 1987, pp. 279-284, where the mursal hadith has been translated as “interrupted tradition”).

    2) On the basis of these arguments, al-Shafi’i accepts the Irsal of Sa’id b. al-Musayyab, one of the elder Successors. For example, al- Shafi’i considers the issue of selling meat in exchange for a living animal: he says that Malik told him, reporting from Zaid b. Aslam, who reported from Ibn al-Musayyab that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) forbade the selling of meat in exchange for an animal. He then says, “This is our opinion, for the Irsal of Ibn al-Musayyib is fine.”

    Source: al-Suyuti, 1:199; Muhammad b. Mustafa al- Ghadamsi, Al-Mursal min al-Hadith (Darif Ltd., London, N.D.), p.71.

    3) Ibnul Qayyim (RA) [691AH 751 AH] has related that Weak Hadeeth is superior to Qiyas according to Imam Shaf’ae (RA)

    Source: A’alamal Mawqieen (1/32)

    Imam Ahmed Ibn Hanbal (RA) [150AH -204AH] and Hanabila:

    1) He accepts mursal and (other) da’if (weak) ahadith if nothing opposing them is found regarding a particular issue, preferring them to qiyas (analogical deduction).

    Source: A’alamal Mawqieen (1/31)

    2) In the most Authentic text of Hanbali Madhab (Al-Mughni) it states “In the case of Nawafil (optional acts of worship) and Fadhail (Virtues deeds) the condition of Authenticity of Hadeeth is not present.
    Source: Al-Mughni (2/88)

    Imam Auzai [89AH -157AH]:

    1) Imam Dhahabi [XXX] has recorded that Imam Awzai (RA) did Istadlaal from Maqtoo’aat (disconnected) and Maraseel of people of Shaam (Syria)

    Source: Sair Aalamun-Nubula (7/114)

    Imam Abu Dawud (RA) [202AH -275AH]:

    1) Hafidh Mundhari (RA) writes that Imam Abi Dawud (RA) used to include weak narrations in the chapters where he couldn’t find any Authentic Narrations because in his opinion weak Ahadeeth are superior to Qiyas
    Source: Tadreebur Rawi

    Imam Ibnul Hazm [384AH -456AH]:

    1) In Almuhalla Ibn Hazm (RA) discussed the matter of Qunoot before Ruku and brings the Hadeeth with the chain of Hasan Ibn Ali (RA) and then writes, “Although this Hadeeth is not worthy of Istadlaal, however since we have not found any other Hadeeth from Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) in this regard therefore we adopt it”

    Source: Almuhalla Li Ibn Hazm (RA) (3/61)

    Usage of Weak Hadeeth in Injunctions with caution (Second Case):

    This is adopted by almost everyone as explained by Imam Nawawi in Al-Adhkaar while expounding on various forms of acting on Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth.

    Imam Nawawi (RA) [631AH -676AH]:

    It is permissible to act (with caution) on such matters which are borne out of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth e.g. Karaha (Offensiveness) in certain matters pertaining to business transactions etc.

    In the Commentary of the statement (above) Ibn Ailaan (RA) has given the example of Karaha (Offensiveness) in doing Wudhu with Water which has been warmed using the heat of the sun, and this is based upon the Hadeeth of Aisha (RA) which is weak.

    Usage of Weak Hadeeth clarifying ambiguous text (Third Case):

    If a verse of the Qur’aan or Authentic narration can have multiple meanings and a weak Narration gives credence to one of the meanings then the Ulama have permitted the usage of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth in clarifying it.

    Usage of Weak Hadeeth in Encouragement towards Good and Discouragement from Evil (Al-Targheeb Wa Al-Tarheeb) (Fourth Case):

    It is the Consensus of the Ulema that weak hadiths can be narrated and put into practice in Islam according to according to al-Bayhaqî, Ibn `Abd al-Barr, al-Nawawî, Ibn Taymiyya, al-Qârî, and `Alawî ibn `Abbâs al-Mâlikî in his manual al-Manhal al-Lat.îf fî Ma`rifat al-H.adîth, provided certain conditions are met.

    Abdullah Ibn Abi Mubarak (RA) [118AH -181AH]:

    One may narrate from [a weak narrator] to a certain extent or those hadiths pertaining to good conduct (adab), admonition (maw’iza), and simple living (zuhd).”

    Narrated by Ibn Abi Hatim in Muqaddimat al-Jarh. wal-Ta’dil (2:30) and cited by Ibn Rajab in Sharh. ‘Ilal al-Tirmidhi (1:73).

    Imam Bukhari (RA) [194AH -256AH]:

    1) Imam Bukhari (RA) has compiled Adab Al-Mufrad which contains many weak Narrations to the point where some scholars have declared some narrations as fabricated; some of the chapters in the book contain no Authentic narrations at all.

    Allamah Shaykh Abdul-Fattah Abu-Ghuddah has discussed the chains of transmissions of Adab Al-Mufrad in detail in his commentary “Fadhlullah As-Samad”

    2) Even in Saheeh Bukhari while discussing the Hadeeth, “Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveler.” Hafidh Ibnul Hajr Asqalani (RA) comments in Fathal Bari, “Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Rahman Tafawi is Munfarid in the narration of this Hadeeth, perhaps Imam Bukhari (RA) has shown leniency in the matter because this Hadeeth is about Al-Targheeb Wa Al-Tarheeb.
    Source: Fathul-Bari Kitabur-Raqaiq

    The full Hadeeth is as follows:

    Narrated Mujahid (RA) : ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (RA) said, “Allah’s Apostle (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) took hold of my shoulder and said, ‘Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveler.”
    Imam Muslim (RA) [206AH -261AH]:

    1) The correct position of Imâm Muslim in the introduction to his Sahîh whih is that he forbade the use of forgers and other abandoned narrators, not of truthful weak ones, in conformity with the position of Ahmad and the rest of the Salaf.

    Source: Cf. al-Nawawî, Sharh. S.ah.îh. Muslim (introduction), Ibn al-Qayyim, I`lâm al-Muwaqqi`în (1:31), al-Sakhâwî, al-Qawl al-Badî` (p. 474), and `Itr, notes on Ibn Rajab’s Sharh. `Ilal al-Tirmidhî (1:75-76).

    2) Muslim also says: “The sound reports from the trustworthy (thiqât) narrators and those whose reliability is convincing are more than that we should be forced to transmit reports from those who are not trustworthy and whose reliability is not convincing.” The difference is clear between saying we are not forced to use weak narrators and saying that one absolutely cannot transmit from them.

    A proof of this is his use of the weak narration from `Â’isha: “Treat people according to their ranks” and the fact that his strictness in narrators drops a notch or two in the h.adîths of raqâ’iq or fad.â’il al-a`mâl in the S.ah.îh., as in the case of Shaddâd ibn Sa`îd Abû T.alhâ al-Râsibî or al-Walîd ibn Abî Walîd.

    Source: The claim of a handful of authors such as al-Qâsimî in Qawâ`id al-Tah.dîth (p. 94) or `Ajâj al-Khat.îb in Us.ûl al-H.adîth (p. 231) that Ibn al-`Arabî and Ibn Ma`în were opposed to the use of weak h.adîths in absolute terms, stems from good faith in Ibn Sayyid al-Nâs, al-`Irâqî, al-Sakhâwî, and al-Suyût.î’s claims to that effect.

    Imam Ibn Arabi [XXX]:

    The correct position of Ibn al-`Arabî is as he states himself regarding a certain weak h.adîth: “Its chain is unknown, but it is preferable to put it into practice…”

    Imam Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani (RA) [661AH -728AH]:

    Al-Haafidth Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalani, sometimes referred to as the Ameer Al-Muslimeen in Al-Hadeeth, said: “There are three conditions that must be fulfilled in order to use the weak Hadeeth: –

    (a) It is well accepted that the weakness should only be slight. This will help to exclude hadeeths reported by liars or accused reporters who are known to commit big mistakes.

    (b) The weak Hadeeth should be used under already well-established principles and should not bring in ideas of its own.

    (c) When a weak Hadeeth is used (after it fulfills the above two conditions), it should not be believed to be said by the Messenger of Allah (Sallao Alaihe Wassallam), lest we refer to him (Sallao Alaihe Wassallam) with that which he did not say.

    Imam Ibn Taymiyyah (RA) [661AH -728AH]:

    Ibn Taymiyya said in his book “al-qaida al-jaleela fit- tawwasuli wal-waseela”, with commentary of Dr. Rabi’a bin Hadi ‘Umayr al-Mudkhali, professor in the Islamic University of Madinah al-Munawwara, Page 162, para 478:
    “But Ahmad ibn Hanbal and other scholars permitted the narration [of hadith] regarding the virtues of good what is not established [as authentic] as long as it is not known that it is a lie.” (laakinna Ahmad ibn Hanbal wa ghayruh min al-‘ulama jawwazu an yurwa fee fada’il al-‘aamal maa lam yu’lam annahu thaabit idha lam yu’lam annahu kadhib.)

    Shaykhul Islam’s book “Alkalimut-Tayyib” contains many weak Ahadeeth which Al-Albani (RA) has himself divided into “Saheeh Alkalimut-Tayyib” & “Da’ef Alkalimut-Tayyib” proving that it contains weak Ahadeeth in the first place!
    Imam Nawawi (RA) [631AH -636AH]:

    Nawawî and al-`Irâqî’s sole conditions (for using Weak Hadeeth) were that:

    1) The hadith be related to good deeds (fad.â’il al-a`mâl)
    without bearing on legal rulings and doctrine and

    2) The hadith not be forged.

    In his book At-Targheeb Wa Al-Tarheeb many weak Ahadeeth are mentioned and Hafidh started them with “Rowi” indicating their weakness and his knowledge of their weakness, yet he chooses to include them in the book.

  37. Ifte says:

    Some Miracles Experienced By the Salaf
    The following narrations were collected by ‘Abdullah ‘Azzam in the second chapter of his book, ‘Ayat ar-Rahman fi Jihad al-Afghan’ (p. 82-94 of the second edition):

    1 – Abu Bakr:

    ‘A’ishah narrated: “When he was on his deathbed, my father said to me: “Verily, you have two brothers and two sisters.” So, I became startled at this, as I only had two brothers and one sister. He referred to his then-pregnant wife, Bint Kharijah, saying: “I see that she is pregnant with a girl,” and that turned out to be exactly the case.”

    [Reported by ash-Shatibi in ‘al-Muwafaqat’ (4/85), and Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned it in ‘Majmu’ al-Fatawa’ (11/318)]

    2 – Abu Qurfasah:

    “The Romans imprisoned a son of the Companion, Abu Qurfasah. So, whenever it was time for prayer, Abu Qurfasah would climb the wall of ‘Asqalan (in Syria) and call out: “O, son! It is time to pray!” And, his son would hear him all the way from the land of the Romans.”

    [‘Majma’ az-Zawa’id’ (9/396), and it is authentic]

    3 – Ibn ‘Abbas:

    “Ibn ‘Abbas died in at-Ta’if, and a bird, the likes of which had never been seen before, was seen at his funeral. The bird entered the hole in the ground where Ibn ‘Abbas was to be buried. So, we looked and waited to see if it would come out, and it didn’t. When his body was finally placed in the ground, we could hear the verse {“O, the one in rest and satisfaction! Come back to your Lord, Well-pleased and well-pleasing!”} [al-Fajr; 27-8] being recited from the edge of his grave, but we were unable to find out who had recited it.”

    [Reported by al-Hakim in ‘al-Mustadrak’ (3/543), and it is authentic]

    4 – ‘Umar bin al-Khattab:

    ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud narrated:

    “A man from among the humans went out and was met by a man from among the jinn, who said: “Will you wrestle with me? If you throw me to the ground, I will teach you an verse which, if you recite it when you enter your house, no devil will enter.” So, he wrestled with him and threw him to the ground. He said: “I see that you are very small and your forearms are like the front paws of a dog. Are all the jinn like this, or only you?” He said: “I am strong amongst them. Let us wrestle again.” So, they wrestled again and the human threw him to the ground. So, the jinn said: “Recite Ayat al-Kursi, for no one recites it when he enters his house except that Satan leaves, passing wind like a donkey.””

    It was said to Ibn Mas’ud: “Was that man ‘Umar?”

    He said: “Who else could it have been, other than ‘Umar?”

    [‘Majma’ az-Zawa’id’; 9/71, and it is authentic]

    5 – Zayd bin Kharijah al-Ansari:

    Sa’id bin al-Musayyib narrated:

    “Zayd bin Kharijah al-Ansari died during the reign of ‘Uthman bin ‘Affan. When he was wrapped in a shroud and being prepared for burial, a gurgling sound was heard coming from his chest, then Zayd got up and said: “Ahmad! Ahmad! He is in the first Book! Abu Bakr has spoken the truth! ‘Umar has spoken the truth! ‘Uthman has spoken the truth!””

    [‘al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah’; 6/293; and it is authentic]

    Sa’id then said:

    “Then, another man died shortly thereafter. When he was wrapped in a shroud and being prepared for burial, a gurgling sound was heard coming from his chest. The man then got up and said: “Zayd bin Kharijah has spoken the truth!””

    [‘Majma’ az-Zawa’id’; 8/230, and it is authentic]

    6 – Hamzah bin ‘Abd al-Muttalib:

    “When the bodies of the martyrs of Uhud were being relocated forty years after their burial (during the reign of Mu’awiyah), the foot of Hamzah bin ‘Abd al-Muttalib was scratched in the process of being moved, and it started gushing blood.”

    [‘al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah’; 4/43, and it is authentic]

    7 – al-‘Ala’ al-Hadrami:

    Abu Hurayrah narrated:

    “al-‘Ala’ al-Hadrami supplicated for rain, and it then began to rain in the middle of the desert. In another incident, he supplicated, and we were able to walk over the water in the Arabian Peninsula (near Bahrain), without even the bottom of our feet getting wet. When he died, we buried him, and after a while, we opened up his grave to find that he was not there.”

    [‘Majma’ az-Zawa’id’; 9/276]

    8 – Salman and Sa’d:

    “When Sa’d and the Muslim army arrived at the Tigris River during the battle of Qadisiyyah, Salman stopped and said: “A river from the rivers of Allah. Will it not carry the soldiers of Allah?” So, he took Sa’d by the hand and stepped onto the water, leading all 30,000 soldiers across the Tigris River on foot. The Persians saw this and escaped, saying: “The demons have arrived! The demons have arrived!””

    [Reported by at-Tabari in ‘at-Tarikh’ (3/123), and Ibn Kathir in ‘al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah’ (7/64)]

    9 – Khalid bin al-Walid:

    Khayshamah narrated:

    “Khalid bin al-Walid came to a man carrying a jug of alcohol, so, he said: “O Allah! Turn it into honey!” So, it turned into honey.”

    [Reported by Ibn Hajar in ‘al-Isabah fi Ma’rifat as-Sahabah’; p. 414]

    …and these were collected from various other sources (Ibn al-Jawzi’s ‘Sifat as-Safwah,’ Ibn Taymiyyah’s ‘al-Furqan,’ adh-Dhahabi’s ‘Siyar,’ etc.):

    10 – Ahmad bin Fudayl narrated:

    “Abu Mu’awiyah al-Aswad went out for Jihad and took part in a battle in which the Muslims had surrounded a fortress on top of which a ‘ilj (Roman disbeliever) was standing who would not throw an arrow or a stone except that he would strike his target. The Muslims complained about this to Abu Mu’awiyah, so he recited: {“And it was not you who threw when you threw. Rather, it was Allah who threw…”} [al-Anfal; 17] Then, he said: “Shield me from him.”

    Then he got up and said: “Where do you wish for me to strike him?”

    They said: “In his private parts.”

    Abu Mu’awiyah said: “O Allah! You have heard what they have asked of me, so grant me what they ask of me!” Then he said ‘bismillah’ and shot the arrow. The arrow went straight for the wall of the fortress, seemingly about to miss the disbeliever. Then, right when it was about to hit the wall, it changed course and shot straight up, striking the ‘ilj in his private parts.

    Abu Mu’awiyah then said: “Your problem with him is over.””

    [‘Siyar A’lam an-Nubala”; 8/43]

    11 – Abu az-Zahiriyyah narrated:

    “I went to Tarsus, so I entered upon Abu Mu’awiyah al-Aswad after he had become blind. In his house, I saw a Mushaf hanging from the wall, so said to him: “May Allah have Mercy upon you! A Mushaf while you cannot even see?”

    He replied: “My brother, will you keep a secret for me until the day I die?”

    I said: “Yes.” Then, he said to me: “Verily, when I want to read from the Qur’an, my eyesight comes back to me.””

    [‘Siyar A’lam an-Nubala”; 8/43]

    12 – Abu Hamzah Nasir bin al-Faraj al-Aslami – and he was a servant of Abu Mu’awiyah al-Aswad – narrates something similar:

    “Abu Mu’awiyah had lost his eyesight. So, if he wished to read from the Qur’an, he would grab around the room for the Mushaf until he would find it. As soon as he would open it, Allah would return his eyesight to him. As soon as he closed it, his eyesight would leave him.”

    [‘Siyar A’lam an-Nubala”; 8/43]

    13 – Usayd bin Hudayr narrated:

    …that while he was reciting ‘al-Baqarah’ at night, and his horse was tied beside him, the horse was suddenly startled and troubled. When he stopped reciting, the horse became quiet, and when he started again, the horse was startled again. Then, he stopped reciting, and the horse became quiet, too. He started reciting again, and the horse was startled and troubled once again. Then, he stopped reciting, and his son, Yahya, was beside the horse. He was afraid that the horse might trample him. When he took the boy away and looked towards the sky, he could not see it.

    The next morning he informed the Prophet who said: “Recite, O Ibn Hudayr! Recite, O Ibn Hudayr!” Ibn Hudayr replied: “O Messenger of Allah! My son, Yahya, was near the horse, and I was afraid that it might trample him, so, I looked towards the sky, and went to him. When I looked at the sky, I saw something like a cloud containing what looked like lamps, and I went out in order not to see it.” The Prophet said: “Do you know what that was?” Ibn Hudayr replied: “No.” The Prophet said: “Those were Angels who came near you for your voice, and if you had kept on reciting till dawn, it would have remained there till morning for the people to have seen it, as it would not have disappeared.”

    [‘Sahih al-Bukhari’; # 5018]

    14 – adh-Dhahabi reported:

    “Salman al-Farisi and Abu ad-Darda’ were eating out of a dish. Suddenly, the dish – or what was in the dish – began to say ‘Subhan Allah.'”

    [‘Siyar A’lam an-Nubala”; 2/348]

    15 – Anas bin Malik narrated:

    “One night, ‘Ubad bin Bishr and Usayd bin Hudayr left the residence of the Prophet on a very dark night. Suddenly, a light appeared that lit their way for them. When they parted ways, the light disappeared.”

    [‘Sahih al-Bukhari’ (3805), the ‘Musnad’ of Ahmad (3/138), ‘al-Mustadrak’ of al-Hakim (3/288), and ‘Siyar A’lam an-Nubala” (1/299)]

    16 – Abu Hurayrah narrated:

    …that Bint al-Harith said, when Khubayb bin ‘Udayy was a prisoner of the Quraysh in Makkah: “…By Allah, one day, I saw him eating from a bunch of grapes in his hand while he was locked in a steel cage, and there were no crops growing in Makkah at the time.”

    [‘Sahih al-Bukhari’ (3045, 3889, 4086, 7402) and ‘Siyar A’lam an-Nubala” (1/249)]

    17 – ‘Urwah bin az-Zubayr narrated:

    “When ‘Amir bin Fuhayrah was martyred, ‘Amir bin at-Tufayl saw his body being lifted into the air. We considered that these were the Angels lifting him.”

    [‘al-Isabah fi Ma’rifat as-Sahabah’; 4/247]

    18 – Umm Ayman narrated:

    “When I was making hijrah, and had no supplied or water with me, I was about to die of thirst. I was fasting, and when it was time to break my fast, I heard a noise above my head. So, I looked up, and saw a waterskin hanging above my head. I drank from it until I had quenched my thirst, and I was never thirsty again for the rest of my life.”

    [”Siyar A’lam an-Nubala” (2/224), ‘at-Tabaqat’ of Ibn Sa’d (/224), and ‘al-Isabah’ (4/415)]

    19 – Ibn Hajar narrated:

    …that when az-Zanayrah was tortured by the mushrikin so that she would renounce her Islam, her eyesight was taken away. So, the mushrikin said: “al-Lat and al-‘Uzza took away her eyesight!” So, she said: “No, by Allah!” So, her eyesight was returned.

    [‘al-Isabah fi Ma’rifat as-Sahabah’; 4/305]

    A lot of miracles is occured with awliya of allah. Then why some brotehrs has problem to accept such miracles can be take place with awliyah of allah, through the command of allah?

    Verily those people cant do anything if allah doesn´t want it.

    Narrations of visualising the unseen

    There is a debate regards to fadail Amaal (Benefits of Deed) about stories narrated about visualising elements of the Unseen. Some have taken these stories to constitute as Shirk (ascribing partners onto Allah), these further would state in the opinion of these individuals that acceptance of these narrations would classify you as a Mushrik (Polytheist).
    The debate regarding what is Unseen in its totality or what constitutes Shirk is a wide subject area and beyond the scope of this topic, however here we want to clarity in regards to these particular narrations and how they are not shirk; InshAllah (Allah willing).

    Firstly we want to cite one of these narrations:

    Moulana Zakariyah mentions in Fazaail-e-Aamaal, Shaikh Abu Yazeed Qurtabi heard from someone that whoever recited it (the Kalimah: La-ilaha ill-Allah-ho) seventy thousand times he or she would be immune from the fire of the Hell. He completed a course accordingly for his wife and many other courses for himself. There lived a youth nearby who, it was said was ‘a man of Kashf’ and had the foreknowledge of the events of Paradise and Hell. One day it so happened that while sharing a meal with him he suddenly made a loud cry and began to gasp, and exclaimed that his mother had been cast into Hell (burning into the fire of Hell). Shaikh Qurtabi keenly observed the condition of the youth and decided to offer a course for his mother secretly so that the fact that the youth possessed a foreknowledge of the Unseen and the truth of his mother’s sad plight in Hell would be ascertained. The Shaikh said that he did it so secretly that nobody could know it, except the Almighty, Allah. But the youth soon expressed his gratitude and said that now his mother had got rid of the Fire of Hell.

    [See, Fazaail-e-Aamaal, (Eng. Trans.), Virtues of Dhikr, Chapter.3 (Part – 3), p.59 (Edt. 1985, Published by Dini Book Depot – Delhi).]

    The portion of this narration in discussion is about ‘youth nearby who, it was said was ‘a man of Kashf’ and had the foreknowledge of the events of Paradise and Hell’, regards to this matter is the complainants disagreement and that this act of foreknowledge of the events of paradise and Hell is an act of shirk.
    In defense we want to look at a term Probability. Probability is the likelihood or chance that something is the case or will happen or can happen, this is a scientific term and also has a term know as Probability theory.
    What is attempted therefore to be explained here is if there is a probability that ‘foreknowledge of the events of Paradise and Hell’ can be achieved.
    Let’s look at an incident from Quran;

    – And the heart of Musa’s mother was free (from anxiety) she would have almost disclosed it had We not strengthened her heart so that she might be of the believers. – Quran 28:10

    Here is what Tafsir Ibn Kathir states on the situation.

    Allah tells us how, when her child was lost in the river, the heart of Musa’s mother became empty, i.e., she could not think of any matter in this world except Musa. This was the view of Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid, `Ikrimah, Sa`id bin Jubayr, Abu `Ubaydah, Ad-Dahhak, Al-Hasan Al-Basri, Qatadah and others.

    ﴿إِن كَادَتْ لَتُبْدِى بِهِ﴾

    (She was very near to disclose his (case),) means, because of the intensity of her grief, she almost told people that she had lost a son. She would have disclosed her situation, if Allah had not given her strength and patience. Allah says:

    ﴿لَوْلا أَن رَّبَطْنَا عَلَى قَلْبِهَا لِتَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَوَقَالَتْ لأُخْتِهِ قُصِّيهِ﴾

    (Had We not strengthened her heart, so that she might remain as one of the believers. And she said to his sister: “Follow him.”) means, she told her daughter, who was older and was of an age to understand things,

    ﴿فَرَدَدْنَـهُ إِلَى أُمِّهِ كَىْ تَقَرَّ عَيْنُهَا﴾

    (So We restored him to his mother, that her eye might be comforted,) means, by him,

    ﴿وَلاَ تَحْزَنْ﴾

    (And that she might not grieve,) means, for him.

    What is deduced here is that a woman, although a mother of a prophet; nevertheless a woman received divine inspiration from Allah. Let’s take a look at a hypothetical situation here, if other members of the family were to ask her why she was putting her child in the river and this is dangerous to the life of the child; she could respond stating that they should not worry and that the child will live. She could make this statement with boldness and absolute conviction since she has received divine inspiration from Allah.
    The ability to affirm whether a person will live or die in the future tense lies only with Allah; however the Quran explains that it can be knowledge given to someone who is not a prophet if Allah wills it.

    – ….The Prophet said, “This is the source of the tradition of the walking of people between them (i.e. Safa and Marwa). When she reached the Marwa (for the last time) she heard a voice and she asked herself to be quiet and listened attentively. She heard the voice again and said, ‘O, (whoever you may be)! You have made me hear your voice; have you got something to help me?” And behold! She saw an angel at the place of Zam-zam, digging the earth with his heel (or his wing), till water flowed from that place. She started to make something like a basin around it, using her hand in this way, and started filling her water-skin with water with her hands, and the water was flowing out after she had scooped some of it.”
    Bukhari – Volume 4, Book 55, Number 583:

    Here we assess that it is possible for a person who is not a Prophet, the mother of a Prophet (i.e. having a blood connection) but an ordinary person to hear and see an entity that is not of this world. It appears in numerous authentic hadith that angels dwell within the realms of the unseen and have actually seen heaven and hell. During the tour undertaken by the Prophet of Allah (Peace be upon him) whence making the ascension, the arch angel Gabriel was present during his interactions with the inhabitants of heaven.

    ….’Open the gate.’ The gatekeeper asked, ‘Who is it?’ He said, ‘Gabriel.’ The gate-keeper,’ Who is accompanying you?’ Gabriel said, ‘Muhammad.’ The gate-keeper said, ‘Has he been called?’ Gabriel said, ‘Yes.’ Then it was said, ‘He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!’ Then I met Adam and greeted him and he said, ‘You are welcomed O son and a Prophet.’ Then we ascended to the second heaven. It was asked, ‘Who is it?’ Gabriel said, ‘Gabriel.’ It was said, ‘Who is with you?’ He said, ‘Muhammad’ It was asked, ‘Has he been sent for?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ It was said, ‘He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!” Then I met Jesus and Yahya (John) who said, ‘You are welcomed, O brother and a Prophet.’ Then we ascended to the third heaven. It was asked, ‘Who is it?’ Gabriel said, ‘Gabriel.’ It was asked, ‘Who is with you? Gabriel said, ‘Muhammad.’ It was asked, ‘Has he been sent for?’ ‘Yes,’ said Gabriel. ‘He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!’ (The Prophet added). There I met Joseph and greeted him, and he replied, ‘You are welcomed, O brother and a Prophet!’ Then we ascended to the 4th heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met Idris and greeted him. He said, ‘You are welcomed O brother and Prophet.’ ….
    Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 54, Number 429.

    Here the attempt is to clarify whether there is a difference between seeing or hearing an inhabitant/frequent visitor of heaven and heaven/hell itself? The fact of the matter is that if an entity that dwells in the unseen i.e. heaven, and that person is heard or visible in the realms of the seen i.e. this life or whilst alive in this life of the world is it difficult to comprehend that Allah can also give the ability to visual the Heaven and/or hell?

    – Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Abbaas (Radhiallaahu Anhu) narrates that once a Sahaabi (Radhiallaahu Anhu) pitched up his tent on top of a grave, not realising that it was a grave. All of a sudden, this Sahaabi (Radhiallaahu Anhu) began to hear the voice of an inhabitant of that grave reading Suratul Mulk until he completed the entire Surah. Thereupon, Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) replied ‘Suratul Mulk is a barrier; it is a protector from the punishment of the grave.’

    Tirmidhi vol.2 pg.117; HM Saeed

    Here we have an incident of a person although a Sahabi (companion of the Prophet of Allah Peace be upon him), nevertheless an ordinary human being, hearing the inhabitants of the grave speak out.

    – Ahmad relates in his Musnad (4:217) that at the time of the greatest fitna of the Dajjal, when the Muslims will be at their weakest point and just before `Isa ibn Maryam descends at the time of salat al-fajr, people will hear a caller calling out three times: “O people, al-ghawth (the helper) has come to you!”

    Here again we have authentic source proofing that inhabitants of this life of the world will have an opening of the unseen and hear a voice calling out to them. This is a reference to a person whom is not a prophet, the mother of a Prophet, any form of relationship to a Prophet or even a Sahabi but an ordinary person.

    Conclusion

    It is proven from Quran and the hadith text that an ordinary human being can hear and see entities that belong in the unseen. The facts underlined here are that dwellers of the grave, which is no doubt considered the realm of the unseen and not part of the life of this world, have been heard. The angels that are not part of the life of this world and dwellers of the unseen have been seen and heard. Therefore why it is difficult to comprehend that paradise or hell itself can be visualised. One can complain that this story is farfetched, strange, difficult to comprehend or even exaggerated, it may well be; however the scope of that it not explored here. The point of the matter is whether there is probability of visualising heaven or hell by a person within the life of this world, and that is clearly possible! Of course anyone who doubts that this can be done without the will of Allah or attributes this ability to anyone other than Allah would constitute as shirk.
    An argument was presented that anything that is against the Shariah (Islamic Law) is not possible and would be wrong, not sure why that argument was presented in light of this incident and that these incidents are against the Shariah, since the Shariah is reference to the law of Islam. Anyway, if someone was to approach me in the street and say that they see paradise or hell as they walk, talk, eat, etc i.e. 24 hours a day; I could certainly express my doubts but in light of the above Quran verses and hadith narrations could not deny the possibilities that this occurred to that particular person. My doubt could based on a numerous factors, the individual may have qualities of Back-biting, not praying their obligatory prayers, not paying zakah, etc; but I could not deny the possibility of the actual unnatural phenomenon occurring as a probability since it has been proven to be probable.

    the arguments u r giving r not explaining the things which u want to conclude from it .i have some quires in my mind i want u to clarify directly rather than comparing one with other.
    1 what is the need of other books when we have quran and sunnah of prophet (saw) with us.
    2 when quran is sent for us as guidance why we need to follow other books if they are controversial.
    3 why we r working for jamaths and not for deen when we are utilizing so much energy on defending our jamaths.
    4 if u believe on these things why then u r saying that brailvies are doing shirk after all they believing on the same fronts.
    6 what about ” amar bil marroof neh anil munkir” dont u feel while doing the tableegh u r only following the first part. what about the second whenever u see the brutalities going on muslims u excape the second part not raising ur voices against it.

    AT WHAT COST?

    Many a non-observant Muslims, may have become practicing Muslims, but at what cost?

    Earlier they were non-observant Muslims
    Now they are observant Sufies.

    Allah wants us to be Muslims, not Sufies with the most heretic belief of ‘wahadatul-wajood’

    Allah is merciful, He can forgive all the sins, but not the sin of ‘shirk’ of ‘wahdatul wajood’

    So, you mean to say that

    Fazael ul Amaal is a better book than Quran and Hadees to bring a change in a person.(I seek refuge in Allah)

  44. abu owais says:

    This book should be banned. It is a book full of soothsayer stories.
    Many people read this and confuse it with hadith. I have seen tj going on their chillas and 4 months… their households are destroyed. Tabliq starts at home and ends at home. Knocking on muslim doors and converting barelvis or salafi is the dawah of tabliq jammat. The book reminds me of jehovas witnesses carrying a book full of a mic of the bible and soothsayer stories. They too go door to door but go to non jehovas witness doors

  45. abu owais says:

    The book is poor in aqeeda issues..SO MANY TIMES IT SAYS, “IT HAS BEEN NARRATED” WELL WHO IS IT NARRATED BY? THE ONLY TRUE WAY IN THE PATH OF ALLAH IS JIHAD. ANY TOM DICK AND HARRY IS PICKING THIS BOOK UP AND GIVING A DARS!!!

  46. sanaulla sharief says:

    TARIQ JAMEEL

    Tariq Jameel visited the dargah of Mohri sharief in Pakistan
    Tariq Jameel paid a visit to Minhajul Quran of Tahir qadri

    Why , he did so?

    To preach Islam or to express his affiliation with them against the people who take their guidance from Quran and Hadees

  47. abu owais says:

    Tariq jamil also praised the shia dogs in a biyan. Tariq jamil is a speaker (very good) he is not a scholar

  48. sanaulla sharief says:

    A movie,a book, a restaurant or’ bayan ‘ becomes popular, if it meets the expectations of the common people.

    Popularity is not a sign of being authentic.

    Let him talk on the issue of ‘shirk’ and ‘waseela’, then let us see his popularity.

    Harish Mohasibi was more popular than Imam Ahmad bin Hanmbal

  49. Hafiz says:

    My dear brother Sanaullah,
    May i ask you,are you an Alim.Please aswer my question.
    Please for Allahu Taala sake.

    What do you mean by ‘alim’?

    I am not an ‘alim’, but a student of the deen, interested in exposing the heretic beliefs of the deviant sects from their own books.

    [Language of Book Urdu/Hindi in English (Roman) script]

    A brief introduction of Fazail e Amal:

    Fadhail e Amaal book is a vast treasure of basic and fundamental Islamic teachings put together with great efforts by Maulavi Muhammad Zakariyya (Rah), one of the most distinguished scholar of Indian Subcontinent of Last century.

    Maulana zakaria the writer has distinguish honour of teaching Bukhari Shareef for nearly 20 years.

    He is among those distinguished scholars who taught Hadith in Madeena Munawara for years.

    It was his desire to take last breath in the blessed city of Madeena.

    Allah accepted his wish.His Janazah Prayer was done in Masjid e Nabwai and Buried in Jannatul Baqie.

    Fazail e Amaal is a collection of 8 books and It is in two volumes.

    Volume1 comprise of Six books

    1.Stories of Sahaba (Hav 11 chaptors on sahabas quality of sacrifice of deen,love for Rasulullah,The Islamic qualities of women and children of that age etc.)

    2. Virtues of Namaz (The Rewards Of Salaat, Warning And Reproach On Discard Of Salaat, The Reward Of Jamaat , Warning And Reproach On Discarding Of Jamaat Importance Of Sincerity And Devotion In Salaat )

    3. Virtues of Rememberance of Allah (Qur’anic Verses relating to Zikr, Section 2 Ahaadith on Zikr , VIRTUES OF KALIMAH TAYYABAH etc.)

    4.Virtues of Quran E pak (Ahadith explaining the Importance of Quran E Pak and Reminder to muslim to inculcate and encourage its reading and teaching in personal and collective life)

    5. Virtues of Tabligh (Calling towards Allah) (Quranic Ayats and Ahadith stressing the duty of muslims of Dawat and Tabligh and Rectification on ummate muhammadia, Ahadith explaining the consequences of not doing the work of Dawat etc.)

    6.Virtues of Ramzan (Having chaptors on importance and purpose of Ramzan and special topic about Lailatul Qadr)

    7.The sixth book of Fazaile Amaal has been written by Maulana Ehtashamul Hasan and its title is âMuslim Degeneration And Its Only Remedyâ

    in which in very scholary manner he has discuused the present day downfall of muslims all over the world, has went into deep to search the causes in the light of Quran and Ahadith and accordingly has suggedted ways to rectify mistakes and way forward. From start to end it is based on Quranic ayats and Ahadith and it is an important book for all muslims irrespective of any Jammat and organization.

    The Second Volume of Fazaile Amaal comprise of two large books

    Virtues of Charity (Having units on Spending in the path of Allah, Huquuqul Ibad with special refrence to parents,relatives and neighbours,and stories of pious persons like Malik bin Deenar (R.A) and Son of Harun Rasheed and others in this connection )

    Virtues of Hajj ( Having Units on virtues and warning of not doing it despite having resources, and stories of pious persons from past about doing Hajj.

    1.Fazail e Amaal is collection of Nine books in two volume on virtues/Fazail of different acts like Salat, Quran, Rememberance of Allah, Dawah o Tabligh, Fasting and Ramzan, Haj and Umrah, Charity and Huququl Ibad (Personal Social relation and Obligations).Two other books are Stories of Sahaba and Present Degeneration of Muslims and its Remeady.

    2.The purpose of Fazail e Amaal to encourage muslim to be connected with Quranic Life.Fazail/virtues of acts/worship strengthen belief on the Rewards of Allah e.g. If I pray Salat with Jamaat/congregation Allah will give reward 27 times more, strong belief on the promises of Allah is the key for moving towards Quranic commands and Islamic way of life.

    3.In Fazail e Amaal On each Topic Quranic Ayats Ahadith has been put together with great efforts by Sheikhul Hadith(Person who teaches Bukhari Shareef) Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya (Rah), one of the most distinguished scholar of Islamic World of Last century.

    4.In covering different topics Hadhrat sheikh has mentioned Hadith touching the collateral topics also. For example if Hadith is about Salat in which some mention about Child Family Tarbiat (Care) has been done. Then sheikh in commentary will give the related Ahadith about Family Care also. This has made the book very useful and effective for encouraging towards Quranic Life.The millions of people benefiting from, is a reflection of Allah acceptance for the book and writer.

    3.Without any doubt Fazail e Amaal has benefited hundreds of millions all over the world not only giving Ilm but connecting them with Quranic Life. Islam is a way of Life and not a philosophy and Practical Islamic life is very important for spreading Islam.

    5.Although Sheikhul hadith Maulana Zakaria has written Fazail e Amaal in accordance with the principles laid down by Great Imams/Scholars on issues like use of weak Ahadith for encouragement, etc………Even Imam Bukhari R.A.has used weak Ahadith in his book Al Adabul mufrad as it was a book of Fazail, Same case with Ibne Taimmiya R.A. also………………

    Sheikh Zakaria himself was an scholar of Bukhari, taught Bukhari Shareef for nearly 20 years in India and Madeena, he even has done scholary work on it ……………………………………some muslim groups has some reservation on certain aspect like weak Ahadith etc. These issues are broad in ummat and not only related with book Fazail e Amaal and almost all Muhaddith/Imam among Salafus Salehin has agreed that weak Ahadith are permissible in Virtues/targeeb/Encouragement. Still………..if someone is not Comfortable with Fazail e Amaal.He may go in Jamaat/take part in the Dawah effort of Tablighi Jamaat without using Fazaile Amaal.They may use other books as below mentioned………..

    …………….

    1.Some Groups/Brothers make a Propaganda and claim that Fazail E Amaal is only book read in Tablighi Jamaat and Ijtema.

    2.First of all in Weekly Ijtema Fazail e Amaal is not read at all. In weekly Ijtema Ahadith and life of prophet and Sahaba (collected in book Hayatus Sahaba) is Read Only.

    3.For Individual Taleem You can chose Tafseer/Hadith/any Islamic Book of Your choice.

    4.When you are in Jamaat in collective Taleem Tableeghi Jamaat Uses these Four Books.

    1.Muntakahab Ahadith

    2.Fazail e Amaal Vol 1 and 2

    3. Hayatus Sahaba Vol 1 2 3

    4. Riyadhus Salehin.

    4.Out of this Muntakhab Ahadith (Collection of Quranic Ayats and Authentic Ahadith and no Commentry/Stories) is very Popular.So they may use Muntakhab Ahadith.

    1.It is a total misconception/allegation that Fazail-e-Aâmal is the guide book of Tableegh Jamaâat.

    2.The concept of Tableegh Jamaâat was not derived from this book, nor is the jamaâat dependant on this book to do the work of tableegh.

    3.They thought it necessary to stipulate such a book that would encourage people towards good deeds/Virtues of Emaan and Amaal e Saliha,thats why Fazail e Amaal book.

    4However, it is not compulsory upon each an every person who joins this effort to read Fazail e Amaal.

    5.Many Places in India and allover the world are using Muntakhib Ahadith(collection of Quranic Ayah and Ahadith on Iman, Salat, Ilm O Zikr, Ikram E Muslim, Ikhlas E niyah,Dawat E Ilallah,and Tark e Layani. ) and Hayatus Sahaba.

    6.Many of the Arabs who are doing this effort chose to read Riyadu-s-Saliheen instead, and they are carrying on with the work of Dawat-o-Tabligh.

    7. Therefore, it is totally incorrect to regard this book as the guide book of Tableegh Jamaâat.

    Tabligh door is open 24X7.

    Come and understand it before making Allegation and confusing Muslims.

    The guide book for all Muslims are only Quran and Ahadith.

    May Allah save all muslims to be on truth and to prepare for Akhirah.

    [{(Before going further We would like to clarify a few Points WHY SOME BROTHERS CRITICIZE FAZAIL E AMAAL……………………………………

    1. Issue of weak Ahadith.

    In Fazail e Amaal Authentic Ahadith from Bukhari and Muslim are also their but there are Weak Ahadith are also.

    WHY??????????????????????????????????????

    Imam Bukhari R.A. and Great Majority of Imam/Muhaddethin(Hadith Scholar) has permitted the use of weak ahadith in Virutes and manners and encouragement for good. (Fazail e Amaal.)

    They not only Permitte but also used weak Ahadith.

    Imam Bukhari R.A. used weak Ahadith in his Hadith Book AL-ADABUL MUFRAD. And Shaykhul Islamâs Allama Ibne Taimiyyas book âAlkalimut-Tayyibâ contains many weak Ahadeeth.

    So Advertising and presenting Isolated case of Fazail e Amaal and weak Ahadith is for confusing general muslims who dont have detail knowledge on the Issue

    .URDU…….Quran Hadith ki Roshni mein Ilmi Taqeeq Fazail e Amaal ke silsile in …………YAHAN CLICK KAREIN

    2. Second Issue is of Stories of Aulia Allah in Fazail e Amaal.

    Ahle sunnat wal jamaat has believe that Aulia Allah by will and power of Allah can perform something that is normally considered impossible.

    A muslim believe that Karamat is totally under control of Allah.

    It is not related to the will or status of a person (Aulia Allah) .

    It is by Allah will and not the Desire/status of person have much Role.

    Sometimes a person other than Prophet may get Kramat from Allah.

    Eg: Quran says that Hazrat Mariyam used to get fruits without season and Prophet Zakaria was not getting,But it does not mean that she became bigger than Prophet.

    Karamat/Maujazah may differ for same person at different time.

    Yaqub Alaihissalam could not trace from the well of Kunan But By will of Allah he could smell the cloths of Yusuf Alaihissalam from far away Egypt.

    So if you will see the Karamat e Aulia with Muslim vision you will find the greatness of Allah.

    Otherwise you may find something else if you consider that it has been done by the Aulia Allah, then it will become shirk,as Some of the groups are smelling Shirk in Aulia Allah Stories.

    May Allah show all of us Right path.

    I am quoting from Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taimiyah (RA)

    Ahlus Sunnah believe in Karamat of Auliya: By Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taimiyah (RA) [Sharh Al-Aqeedat-il-Wasitiyah]

    ÙÙÙÙÙ٠أÙصÙÙÙ٠أÙÙÙÙ٠اÙسÙÙÙÙÙØ©Ù: اÙتÙÙصÙدÙÙÙ٠بÙÙÙرÙاÙÙات٠اÙØ£ÙÙÙÙÙÙÙاء٠ÙÙÙÙا ÙÙجÙرÙ٠اÙÙÙ٠عÙÙÙ٠أÙÙÙدÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙÙÙ Ø®ÙÙÙارÙÙ٠اÙÙعÙادÙات٠ÙÙ٠أÙÙÙÙÙاع٠اÙÙعÙÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙاÙÙÙÙÙÙاشÙÙÙات٠ÙÙØ£ÙÙÙÙÙاع٠اÙÙÙÙدÙرÙØ©Ù ÙÙاÙتÙÙØ£ÙØ«ÙÙرÙات Ø ÙÙاÙÙÙاثÙÙر عÙÙ٠سÙاÙÙÙ٠اÙØ£ÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙ٠سÙÙرÙة٠اÙÙÙÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙغÙÙÙرÙÙÙØ§Ø ÙÙعÙÙ٠صÙدÙر٠ÙÙØ°ÙÙ٠اÙØ£ÙÙÙÙØ©Ù ÙÙÙ٠اÙصÙÙØ­ÙابÙØ©Ù ÙÙاÙتÙÙابÙعÙÙÙÙ ÙÙسÙائÙر٠ÙÙر٠اÙØ£ÙÙÙÙØ©ÙØ ÙÙÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙÙجÙÙدÙØ©Ù ÙÙÙÙÙا Ø¥ÙÙÙÙ ÙÙÙÙÙ٠اÙÙÙÙÙÙاÙÙØ©Ù Û

    The testimony of the Karamat (charismata) occurred by the Auliya (those righteous people who are close to Allah) also forms part of the principles of Ahlus-Sunnah, as also the testimony of all those extraordinary occurrences and habits which Allah manifests through them in terms of various knowledges, spiritual experiences, powers, and influences and those that are mentioned in the Qur’anic Surah Al Kahf etc. regarding former communities and about the initial period of the Sahaba and Taba’een of this Ummah till today and will continue to remain till the day of judgement.

    For detail Ahadith and scholary discussion on these issue click here

    In Fazail e Amaal there are Aulia Allah stories,that are of Established Aulia of Past like Hasan Basri, Abdul Qadir Jeelani,Great Imams like Imam Bukhari,Imam Muslim,Imam Tirmidhi,Malik bin deenar, Ibraheem binaudhamR.A. etc….. from Refrenced Books of History and not from anyone memory.

    Why it has been written?????????????????????????

    1. It is only to keep our desire for the world at modest level and for rememberance of Akhairah.

    2. The author has clarified in Fazail e Amaal that stories of Aulia Allah is of only of Historical importance

    and not indicate/derive any rule of Shariah and Aqeeda.

    Writer of Fazail e Amal

    Fazail e Amal was compiled by ShaikhulHadith Hazrath Muhammad Zakariya (Rahimahullah).He was a very high ranking Aalim and Muhaddith (Scholar of Hdith) and Musleh, who has writtenâ¦â¦..books including one of the most markable commentary of Mauta Imam Malik with title of Ojazul Masalik which is Alhamdulillah in six volume,and has taught Bukhari Shareef for nearly 25 years in India and in Madeena Munawwara and commonly referred as Shaikhul Hadith. Some of his Hadith works include.

    Awjaz al-Masalik ila Muwattaâ Imam Malik: One of the most comprehensive commentaries on the Muwatta of Imam Malik in terms of the science of hadith, jurisprudence, and hadith explication.

    Al-Abwab wa âl-Tarajim li âl-Bukhari: An explanation of the chapter headings of Imam Bukhariâs Sahih al-Bukhari. Assigning chapter headings in a hadith collection is a science in itself, known among the scholars as al-abwab wa âl-tarajim [chapters and explanations].

    Juzâ Hajjat al-Widaâ wa âUmrat al-Nabi : A comprehensive Arabic commentary on the detailed accounts of the pilgrimage [hajj] of Allahâs Messenger.

    Khasaâil Nabawi Sharh Shamaâil al-Tirmidhi: Composed in urdu, a commentary on Imam Tirmidhiâs renowned work al-Shamaâil al-Muhammadiyya, a collection of hadiths detailing the characteristics of the Messenger.

    He was a prominent figure of scholary and spiritual personality of last century. He died in Madeena Munawwara on Monday Shaâban 1, 1402 AH (May 24, 1982 CE) his prayer was held in Masjid e Nabwi and was buried in Jannat al-Baqi/Baqi e Garqad.

    .

    Brief Objective of Tablighi jamaat and its relation to Fazail E Amaal

    Tablighi jamaat is a movement meant whose objective can be summarized as

    Rejuvenate the ‘love for Deen’ ie love and desire for Islamic way of life in the heart ,the noble way of hazrat Muhammad sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

    Strenthing the belief that success in this world and hereafter is only in obeying deen the command of allah and following of hazrat Muhammad sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam in 24 hour of our life and in all walks of our life,

    Increasing the value and acceptability of practical Sunnah of prophet.

    In simple words you can say that its object is to increase thirst among muslim to be a practicing muslim. To fill the muslim heart with the truth that his success and success of all human being is in following Quran and Hadith ie Deen.

    Fazail-e-amaal is simply the related extracts from the Quran and Ahadith collections to help in meeting these specific objective. The object of the book is to encourage the Muslims.It is a book to increase thirst of knowledge/knowledge seeking behavior so that we could seek it from proper sources of quran and Ahadith.

    With this objective, Fazail-e-amaal was written. It was not meant to be set of rulings on Islam. Pattern of Fazail e Amaal.

    The writer tarts topic with a specific pattern. He has divided each unit into topics and topic consists of related Aayaats of the Quran, Related Ahadith, Stories of the Sahabah and stories of the pious predecessors that explain the virtues of good deeds. And as the stories of Sahaba and of pious muslims (buzurgane deen) from past are inspirational example. So that stories are also there but not more than 5 -10 % of total content

    The role and status of Fazail-e-Aâmal in Tableegh Jamaâat

    1.It is a total misconception that Fazail-e-Aâmal is the guide book of Tableegh Jamaâat. The concept of Tableegh Jamaâat was not derived from this book, nor is the jamaâat dependant on this book to do the work of tableegh.

    2.Ulemas thought it necessary to stipulate such a book that would encourage people towards good deeds, and thought that Fazail e Amaal serves the purpose. But its role is of facilitator only.

    4.However, it is not compulsory upon each an every person who joins this effort to read this book.

    5. Many Places in India and allover the world are using Muntakhib Ahadith which has only sound Hadith and no Stories Only Quranic Ayats and Ahadith.(Quranic Ayah and Ahadith on Eman and Aqeedah, Salat, Ilm O Zikr, Ikram E Muslim, Ikhlas E niyah,Dawat E Ilallah,and Tark e Layani. ) and Hayatus Sahaba

    5.Arabs who are doing this effort chose to read Riyadu-s-Saliheen instead, and they are carrin on with this work.

    7. Therefore, it is totally incorrect to regard this book as the guide book of Tableegh Jamaâat.

    The guide book fro all Muslims are only Quran and Ahadith.

    (I READ ON SOME WEBSITEs/Facebook THAT IT HAS BEEN ALLEDGED THAT BAIIT IS TAKEN ON FAZAIL E AMAAL WHOSOEVER GOES IN JAMAAT……………THIS Is Totally wrong. You can confirm it from anywhere……………..THOSE WHO ARE making this allegation their answer will come on the day of Qiyamah…….They should be ready with their answer for allegations)

    What fazail e amal is not. It is not a book of.

    It is not not to explain any ruling of Shariâah.(Masail).It doesn’t contain Masa’il why because tabligh jamaat has people from all four Madhab (from different school of thoughts), so they might indulge in arguing with each other and it will not create a conductive situation. So for Masail they are advised to seek guidance from Muftis/Alims or authentic books of Alims on the subject.

    It is not a book of Aqeeda

    It is not a guide book for Tableeghi Jamaat.

    Tableeghi jamaat is not dependent on it. Even to meet its above mentioned objective it also has other books on virtues of good deeds ie MUNTAKHAB AHADITH, RIYAZUSSALIHIN,HAYATUS SAHABA

    Why not Bukhari Shareef instead of Fazail e Amaal for collective Taleem

    The specific context for using fazail e amaal is that it is book of virtues of Amaal only.

    Use of Fazail-e-amaal is not meant to discourage the reading of the Holy Quran or any other Ahadith book like Bukhari and Muslim(Sahah Sitta) .(NAUZUBILLAH how a muslim can think of it).

    1.Whole ummate muslima is unanimous on the fact that Bukhari shareef is most authentic book of Hadith.

    2. In jamaat for collective taleem Bukhari shareef, is not used for simple reason that Bukhari shareef covers hadith related to a wide range of topics and not only about virtues of deed.

    Purpose of Taleem is encouragement for good deeds that is through virtues.Those Ahadith of Bukhari that is about virtues has been included in Fazail e Amaal.

    THE WRITER OF FAZAIL E AMAAL HAS TAUGHT BUKHARI SHAREEF FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS IN INDIA AND MADEENA.

    Sheikh Zakaria HAS ALSO DONE SCHOLARY WORK ON BUKHARI SHAREEF.

    Al-Abwab wa âl-Tarajim li âl-Bukhari: An explanation of the chapter headings of Imam Bukhariâs Sahih al-Bukhari. Assigning chapter headings in a hadith collection is a science in itself, known among the scholars as al-abwab wa âl-tarajim [chapters and explanations].

    Writer of Fazail e Amal position in the field of Hadith

    He was teacher of Bukhari Shareef for nearly 25 years.

    Fazail e Amal was compiled by ShaikhulHadith Hazrath Muhammad Zakariya (Rahimahullah).He was a very high ranking Aalim and Muhaddith (Scholar of Hdith) and Musleh, who has written many books including one of the most markable commentary of Mauta Imam Malik with title of Ojazul Masalik which is Alhamdulillah in six volume,

This commentary explains the various aspects related to the different characteristics and practices of Allahâs Messenger. It has been translated into English and is widely available.

    HOW HE CAN IGNORE BUKHARI SHAREEF

    Shaikh zakaria has taught Bukhari Shareef for nearly 25 years in India and in Madeena Munawwara and commonly referred as Shaikhul Hadith. He was among few scholars of Hadith from India who taught Bukhari Shareef in Madeena Munawwara.

    He died there and his Janaza was Offered in Masjid e Nabwi and Burried in Janatul Baqee (Baqee e Garqad)

    We should be fearful from allah before alleging against any muslim fellow.(May Allah save us from sins).

    As the stories of Sahaba and of pious buzurgane deen from past are inspirational example.

    So that stories are also there but not more than 5 -10 % of total content.

    And it has been clarified in Fazail E Amaal that stories are only of historical importance and not anything compulsary to be followed and to keep our attitude as modest in our lavish lives.

    Stories Of Prophet and Aulia Allah.

    1. There is nothing wrong in stories of pious people of Past. In Quran Allah pak has told Stories of Prophet Rather one Ayat he has mentioned ………..AHSANAL QASASA…..

    2. Prophet has himself Narrated Stories of Bani Israeel and SAID IN BUKHARI SHAREEF……AS WALA HARAJ.

    3. Stories OF Aulia Allah are only for encouragement Purpose to keep our worldy engagement as modest. No Sharaee Ruling/Aqeedah can be obtained from Stories. Fazaile Amaal writer has clarified this emphatically.

    The specific context for using fazail e amaal should not be forgotten that it is book of virtues of Amaal only. Some ill hearted brothers allege that tablighi people keep fazail e amaal above Bukhari Shareef. It is a baseless allegation and use of Fazail-e-amaal is not meant to discourage the reading of the Holy Quran or any other Ahadith book .(NAUZUBILLAH).We should be fearful from allah before alleging against any muslim fellow.(May Allah save us from sins).Whole ummate muslima is unanimous on the fact that Bukhari shareef is most authentic book of Hadith.In jamaat for collective taleem Bukhari shareef, is not used for simple reason that Bukhari shareef covers hadith related to a wide range of topics and not only about virtues of deed. As the stories of Sahaba and of pious buzurgane deen from past are inspirational example. So that stories are also there but not more than 5 -10 % of total content.And it has been clarified in Fazail E Amaal that stories are only of historical importance and to keep our attitude as modest in our lavish lives.

    I have seen personally the tragedy of reading this book in jamaat for 3 days, ‘chilla’ or 3 months, one year etc. This has destroyed their family live, look at what has happened to their wives, , sisters, ,daughters etc… this is not the way of the prophet s.a.w or the sahabas. Iy started in India by m.ilyas. tabliq starts at home. I have been on jammaat and seen how they hold tight to fazail e amal and will never allow you to read or study hadith. There is nothing wrong with a educated scholar teaching others but not 13 year old kids giving dara

    Job seekers allowance or disability allowance ,then go in jamaat. Amaray busurgh farmatay or the best is it has been narrated. …no reference!

  58. Imran says:

    Bhai saheb Imaan ban gaye tho sab amaal ache ho jate yaar and Prophet Mohammed(SAW) said their is one bone if it is right then all the thing be the right i,e Heart
    My brother See our prophet and Sahaba how they did for the religion i.e Islam
    Everything they spend for the Islam
    Brother i think you know about Abu baker Raziallahu when they
    went for fight so before the fight Abu baker the sahabi bring everything for the war and umar the sahabi bring the half of the wealth from his house
    This will happen and insha allah Allah is seeing and he will a great regard and you will say at the time of reward if anything that you have not given the world

  59. abu owais says:

    You are missing my point. Tableeq jamaat is not sunnah but going out in the path means jihad…I am ex tabliqi. You don’t allow women in masjids and have different fees for pakistani kids in madrassa. Pakistanis can only be members of pakistani masjids and the same as Indian masjids. . WHAT JAMAAT IS THIS???

  60. Imran says:

    Assalamu alaikum bhai
    Why we are going in the path of Allah(SWT) i.e to change the life of us.
    Our imaan is very weak so in order to get the imaan which Allah wants so we are working,
    Brother think why Allah (SWT) is helping the people to change the life of us and Rules of prophet mohammed(SAW) is coming in their life and also important one is You know brother i,e their are many muslim brother who dont know about our prophet name?
    Think and reply?

  61. SANAULLA SHARIEF says:

    Muslim (976) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him)
    > said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
    > said: “I asked my Lord for permission to pray for forgiveness for my mother,
    > but He did not give me permission. And I asked Him for permission to visit
    > her grave, and He gave me permission.
    >
    > It says in ‘Awn al-Ma’bood:
    > “But He did not give me permission” means: because she was a kaafirah
    > (disbeliever) and it is not permissible to pray for forgiveness for the
    > kuffaar.
    > Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
    > This shows that it is not permitted to pray for forgiveness for the
    > kuffaar.

    OUR PROPHET WAS DENIED PERSMISSION TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS OF HIS MOTHER, AS SHE WAS ‘KAFIR’
    BUT
    TARIQ JAMEEL VISITED THE GRAVE OF AMINA AND MADE SUPPLICATION

  62. SANAULLA SHARIEF says:

    A single drop of urine is enough to make water ‘najas’

  63. Imran says:

    Brother you have objection on Fazil e amaal ok did you agree or another books do you dis agree?
    Dont look at the people?
    Look only to the Prophet and Sahaba thats its .
    Now in the present you will find mistakes please look only to the prophet and their sahaba.
    Our ideal is Prophet and sahaba…. Then you will find correct way this is way that our prophet and sahaba did it then we are doing

  64. abu owais says:

    My objections are with this book and the methodology of tableeq using fabricated stories. I have just been to the middle east and they have tableeq there but a shaykh goes out and teaches quran or hadith not from fazaile amal. 40 days, 3 months or one year to study this book! ! The book is full of soothsayer majic stories

    When you want to buy a book, you want to know the author.

    Do you know that Moulana Ilyas was a Sufi, and spent seven years doing ‘maraqaba’ in the ‘dargah’ of Abdul Quddoos Gangohi.

    The first of moulana Zakaria was ‘mashaikh e chist’.
    Did you read this book?

    If not, read it and make an opinion about this writer..

    Brother, you cannot separate a book and its author. When you ask about information about a book, don’t you also want to know about the author??? . That is why at the end of every book cover or in its introduction, we have information about the author

  66. Imran says:

    Brother if their Imaan is for the sake of Allah only then you will be caught in the day of judgement ok
    Read Muntakab hadees then their is no doubt in it go in the path of Allah(SWT) only for the sake of Allah and to change the life…Thanks and Jazak allah

    Is Quran and Hadees not enough for me for guidance ?

  68. SANAULLA SHARIEF says:

    Will you read a book, written by Mirza Ahmad Qadiani, or Nahjul Balagh of Shias?

  69. abu owais says:

    Respected brother in islam you are totally missing my point. The jehovas witnesses carry a book called the scriptures, it has a bit of the old testament, new testament and fabricated stories. Ask any Christian and they will tell you that they are preaching on falsehood. They hold onto the scriptures like it is the Bible. They go house to house non muslims, muslims etc. The tableeq jamaat carry the fazail e amal like it is hadith. Look at their own homes. ..it is a mess. The real dawah is to non muslims. I hardly see any reverts in tableeqi masjids. When it comes to ehklas I agree the tableeq jamaat is very polite and speak softly

  70. abu owais says:

    Yes akhi quran and hadith not amaray busurgh stories or it has been narrated stories

  71. abu owais says:

    What sort of question is that??? Are you a mi5 agent or a idiot who is on this forum without parental guidance.. I am a sunni muslim Allhamdolillah not a KAFIR. GO DO YOUR SCHOOL HOMEWORK

  72. SANAULLA SHARIEF says:

    Abu Owais
    You mis-read my mail
    I put the questions to TJs not to you.
    They hold the books of their elders more dear than that of Allah and Rasool.

  73. SANAULLA SHARIEF says:

    BEING BURIED IN MADINA

    Is it a passport to ‘jannah’?

    GETTING BURIED IN MADINA. Do you think, only pious and righteous persons die in Madina? Even Abdallah bin Ubai, the head of the ‘munafeqeen’ was buried there. Every year so many people visit Madina. Not all of them are Muslims.These include Shias, Sufies, Batinies, Karamata, Zydees and people with heretic beliefs like TJs. Are all of them are in ‘jannah’?

  74. abu owais says:

    Stop wasting your time I know that. Even makkah is full of non muslim graves.

  75. SANAULLA SHARIEF says:

    So many heretic sects
    who is on the ‘sirat e mustaqeem’?

  76. SANAULLA SHARIEF says:

    The times is not wasted, if it leads at least one person from the darkness of Sufism to the straight path of Islam.InshaAllah

  77. abu owais says:

    Allhamdolillah I never was a sufi. I pray in deobandi and salafi masjids

  78. SANAULLA SHARIEF says:

    Do You Know the Declaration of Founders of Deoband.?

    ‘They are initiates of the Chistiyyah, Naqshbandiya, Qadriyah and Soharwardiyah Sufi orders’

    Elders of the Deobandi school of thought, have testified to the fact that their Manhaj (way) is that of the Sufis and take pride in it.

    Mufti Abdur-Rahim Lajpuri quoted in his book of Fatawa, the words of Qaree Mohammed Tayyib (the rector of the Darul-Uloom Deoband) as,

    “Religiously, the Ulema of Deoband are Muslims, as a sect they belong to the Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaah, by Madhhab they are Hanafee, in conduct they are Sufis, scholastically they are Maturidi and in Sulook they are Chisti[1]- rather they combine all Sufi orders… And in nisbat they are Deobandi.”[2] “In essentials and beliefs, they (the Deobandis) follow Imam Abul Hasan Ash’aree and Imam Abu Mansoor Maturidi; and in sub-principles Imam Abu Haneefah. They are initiates of the Chistiyyah, Naqshbandiya, Qadriyah and Soharwardiyah Sufi orders

    Do you still have a doubt about TJ being a Sufi revivalist movement?

  79. Ali says:

    Assalamu alaykum everyone.

    I was a hardcore Tablighi, ask me what’s goes on there. People blindly taking knowledge from so called shaykhs, also people are speaking out of knowledge, they will tell you that aqquiring knowledge from Quran and Hadith is not for everyone leave it to the scholars. when people’s emotions gets overwhelmed then the intellect don’t seems to have a place in order to be JUST. All I can advice to you all is to be open minded (without being bias). What was the prophet advise to all of us in his last fairwell(khutba) message? STICK TO QURAN & HIS SUNNAH

    Anything other then that will lead all of us to deviate

    Forgive me if my words are bitter, please try to digest it. It may help
