“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

Haazir-o-Naazir


Prior to discussing this point, one needs to reflect upon the term „haazir-o-naazir‟. These are both Arabic words which translate as “one who is present and looking”. And if one combines these two word, they would imply “That being whose presence is not restricted to one specific place, in fact, his presence at one and the same time encompasses the entire universe and is aware and looks at every particle from the first to the last.”

My belief is that the term haazir-o-naazir can only be attributed to the Being of Allaah Ta`ala and none else. This is His exclusive attribute. Regarding our Nabi (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam), everyone is well aware that his body rests in his blessed grave. His admirers the world over, come there to visit him. Hence, thi s belief that Nabi (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam) is present all over and he sees every atom of the universe is spurious to any sane mind. This quality is exclusive to Allaah Ta`ala and it is totally incorrect to ascribe it to anyone else.

If the ascribers to the belief of haazir-o-naazir aver that it means that after the demise of Nabi (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam) his blessed soul was granted the permission to roam freely, then this does not establish his being haaziro-naazir. In Pakistan (and every other country) the citizens are allowed to go anywhere in the country they please, so does this consent imply that every citizen of Pakistan is haazir-o-naazir? If a person has the permission to go to a certain place does not imply that this person is present at that place. Besides this, if one avers regarding a certain place (for example say Karachi) that Nabi (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam) is present there, then this is such a claim which warrants proof. This is such a claim which has no basis in the Shariah, hence to make such a claim and hold such a belief without citing any proof is not correct. Some insane people do not only hold this belief regarding Nabi (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam), they believe that many Auliyaa are haazir-o-naazir. I am astonished at the „generosity‟ of such people. They are so liberal with the Attributes of Allaah Ta`ala that they share it out freely amongst the creation! Nevertheless, this intrepidity and audaciousness is totally unacceptable to the Aimmah of the Ahle Sunnah. It is stated in Fataawa Bazaazia:

“Our Ulama state that whoever avers that the souls of the Mashaaikh are present and listening has committed KUFR.” [Footnote of Aalimgiri, page 326, vol.6]

[“Differences in the Ummat” by Shaykh Ludhyanvi Shaheed (Rahimullah)]

    Differences in the Umat is an excellent, non-polemical work to learn about many conflicts among Muslims. May Allah reward the author abundantly.

    Deobandi = Barelwi

    Khalil Ahmad Saharanpuri in his book “Muhannad alal Mufannad” printed by Idara Islamiyat. (this has been certified by more than 100 top deobandi scholars)
    on page number 126 and 127 he writes:
    “Rasol Allah (SAW) is alive in his grave and with permission from Allah he can go anywhere in the world”

    Page number 45
    “it is permissible to take blessing (faiz) from the graves”

    ……………………………………………………………………..

    Hafidhh Ibn Taymiyyah states:

    Imam Ahmed Ibn Hanbal Rahmatulah was asked ‘Is it permitted to do Masa of Mimber of Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), to touch the Mimber for blessing. He replied ‘Yes it is permitted’. Abdullah Ibn Ummar, Sa’eed Ibn-ul-Musayyid, Yahya bin Sa’eed, and other great Scholars of Madinah used to do Masa of the Mimber.
    [Iqtidat Sirratal Mustaqeem page 203]

    Hafidhh Ibn Kathir say’s:
    When Hafidhh Ibn Taymiyyah passed away some people came and gathered around him and sat close to his body to obtain blessing from him. Also a group of women came and the water that was left over after bathing him they drank to get blessing from it as Tabarruk. The left over leaves of a tree which were also used in bathing him, were distributed among themselves for the purpose of Tabarruk. Whatever touched his body, like for example handkerchief, scarf which he used wear round his neck, was sold for a large amount of money, to someone to keep as Tabarruk. People used to come day and night to his grave, and some people use to even spend the night there’. [Tareek Ibn Kathir chap death of Ibn Taymiya]

    If from the clothes or from the water which is left over from touching his body or by sitting close to Hafidhh Ibn Taymiyya you may obtain blessing, then how can it be wrong to get blessing by touching and kissing the grave of Prophet Muhammad(pbuh). Or how can that be called Bid’ah or go even as far as calling someone Mushrik for doing that.

    Salam
    Haq is Clear on “Defending Tablighi Jamaat” but brother truelife is affraid of the right answer, he thinks that the discussion is leading no where.
    Brother Waek Wrote:
    Prescribe Fatwa to write Quran from Urine?

    Why would anybody write quran with urine when there is no crises of pen and ink? ho has such need?

    YES YOUR QUESTION ARE VALID, WHY WOULD ANYONE IS PRESCRIBE TO WRITE SURA FATIHA WITH URINE WHEN THERE IS NO CRISES OF PEN AND INK ?
    WHY HE DID IT ?

    brother umar the fatwa will be given when someone asks the question. and the fatwa is followed only by the person to whom it was given and by those who’s question is accordingly.

    i will give you one example.

    there is one fatwa ‘ if u have done urine in farz namaz then ur namaz will be valid ‘

    now ur moulvi’s will show this much and say see what is their aqeedah nauzubillah.

    now if we see complete fatwa u will know it means that, if a person suffering from diabetes or old people wants to read namaz, now urine will be mostly slipping out from them for every few seconds. so they have to use pampers. so ulema have said they should do wazu before namaz and read it and if urine slips ur namaz will be valid. if we say no without taharath namaz is not valid then that particular person cannot read namaz in his whole life. and namaz should be read in any condition.

    so brother what we need is proper understanding, u cant just follow anything blindly.
    ————————————————

    I agree brother AbdulQuddus that in some conditions when the person is not having urine control the person can pray Salah and InshaAllah it will be valid as it is an excuse (Uzr). And Allah (ST) want easiness for us.

    IF YOU DO NOT LIKE OTHER MOLVI THEN PLEASE SHOW ME BY YOURSELF, CAN YOU TELL ME WHY TAQI USMANI PRESCIBED URINE TO WRITE QURAN ? WHAT IS THE TOTAL QUESTION AND ANSWER?
    TELL ME THE COMPLETE FATWA SO THINGS CAN MORE CLEARER OR GIVE ME YOUR EMAIL OR YOU MAY TAKE IT FROM http://fr.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/abualqamah/detail?.dir=be8ere2&.dnm=d736re2.jpg&.src=ph
    AND DO NOT MISS THE QUOTATION FROM THE (Farawa Qazi Khan al Hamish Fatawa Alamgiri page 404 volume 3 book of khater wal abaha)
    O Allah Show us Haq as Haq and give us courage to follow it, O Allah show us Batil as Batil and give us courage to leave it.

    You may resemble me with shia, as you speak in the air.

    Brother AbdulQuuddus you wrote:
    so brother what we need is proper understanding, u cant just follow anything blindly.
    NOW YOU ADMIT THAT WE DO NO HAVE TO FOLLOW ANYTHING BLINDLY, THIS IS WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY FROM THE BEGINING.
    SO WHAT WE MUST FOLLOW, AND WHAT IS ABOVE ALL RULINGS AND FATWA?
    I HOPE YOUR ANSWER WILL BE QURAN AND SUNNAH.

    You further wrote:
    it will be difficult for u only because you need to refute books of hanafi’s which are from 1300 years ago.
    and its easy for us to refute u because ur books are just some 150 years ago.

    BROTEHR I AM NOT QUOTING FROM ANY OTHER BOOK BUT THE QURAN AND SUNNAH
    NO MATTER HOW OLD YOUR BOOKS ARE IF CONTRADICTING WITH QURAN THEN THESE ARE WRONG.
    I HOPE THIS POINT IS CLEAR.

    IT IS TO REMIND YOU AGAIN THAT IT IS NOT FOR TAKFEER.
    ABOUT YOUR SUNNIFORUM, YOUR SENIOR MEMEBERS ARE ALREADY HERE BUT THEY ARE UNABLE TO ANSWER THE PLAIN QUESTION FROM QURAN AND SUNNAH, EVEN ON THE FORUM THE QUESTION HAS BEEN ASKED ABOUT THE REFUTAL OF MY RAISED POINTS AND STILL UNANSWERED.

    THANK YOU BROTHER ABDULLAH FOR PRAYING FOR OUR BROTHERS BUT IT WAS UNJUST TO PASTE ROMAN OF SURA KAFIROON. I MAY RAISE QUESTION THAT WHO IS DOING TAKFEER.

    AS FOR YOUR POST IN THIS PAGE ABOUT IMAM AHMAD AND IBN-E-KATHIR THINK YOU KNOW THE SIMPLE RULE.
    THE ONLY DALEEL IS FROM QURAN AND SUNNAH AND SAYING OF ANY AALIM OR IMAM CAN NOT STOP ANYTHING TO BE A BID`A.
    SAYING OF IMAM IS NOT DALEEL.

    LET US JOIN ON THE COMMON TERMS AND FOLLOW ONLY QURAN AND SUNNAH.

    And (remember) the Day when the Zalim (wrong-doer, oppressor, polytheist, etc.) will bite at his hands, he will say: “Oh! Would that I had taken a path with the Messenger ( Muhammad SAW).

    “Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a friend!

    “He indeed led me astray from the Reminder (this Quran) after it had come to me. And Shaitan (Satan) is ever a deserter to man in the hour of need.”

    And the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) will say: “O my Lord! Verily, my people deserted this Quran (neither listened to it, nor acted on its laws and orders).
    [Sura Furqan Ayat 27 to 30]

    “Verily, this is My Way, leading Straight: follow it: follow not (other) paths: they will scatter you about from His (great) Path.” [Al-Quran 6:153]
