एक बहुत बड़े सूफ़ी को उनके एक शागिर्द ने खाने पर बुलाया. सूफ़ी साहब ने शागिर्द से पूछा, तुमने मेरे खाने के लिए क्या इंतज़ाम किया है. शागिर्द ने सब बताया. सूफी साहब ने कहा, क्या तुमने शराब का बंदोबस्त किया है? शागिर्द हैरान हो गया. सूफ़ी साहब ने कहा, क्या तुमको नहीं मालूम कि मै शराब पीता हूं. ख़ैर, शराब मंगाई गई और खाने के साथ रखी गई. सूफ़ी साहिब ने शराब को हाथ नहीं लगाया.शागिर्द ने पूछा, हुज़ूर शराब क्यों नही पी रहे? सूफ़ी साहब ने कहा, मै शराब नहीं पीता. शागिर्द को और हैरानी हुई. उसने कहा तब आपने शराब क्यों मंगवाई? सूफ़ी साहिब ने कहा, अगर तुमने शराब न मंगवाई होती, तो मै खाना न खाता. शागिर्द ने पूछा , क्यों? इस पर सूफ़ी साहिब ने कहा कि इससे ये साबित होता कि तुम्हारे दिल में उन लोगों के लिए कोइ जगह नहीं है जिनके यक़ीन (विश्वास/आस्था) तुम्हारे यक़ीन के उलटे ( विपरीत) हैं, बरअक्स है.
एक बुज़ुर्ग फ़रमाते हैं कि मैं एक मस्जिद में नमाज़ अदा करने गया. वहां मैंने देखा कि एक मालदार ताजिर (व्यापारी) बैठा हैं और क़रीब ही एक फ़क़ीर दुआ मांग रहा हैं-
“या अल्लाह तआला, आज मैं इस तरह का खाना और इस क़िस्म का हलवा खाना चाहता हूं”.
ताजिर ने ये दुआ सुनकर बदगुमानी करते हुए कहा- “अगर ये मुझसे कहता तो मैं इसे ज़रूर खिलाता, मगर ये बहाना साज़ी कर रहा है और मुझे सुनाकर अल्लाह तआला से दुआ कर रहा है, ताकि मैं सुनकर इसे खिला दूं, वल्लाह मैं तो इसे नहीं खिलाऊंगा”.
वो फ़क़ीर दुआ से फ़ारिग़ होकर एक कोने में सो गया. कुछ देर बाद एक शख़्स ढका हुआ तबाक़ लेकर आया और दायें बायें देखता हुआ फ़क़ीर के पास गया और उसे जगाने के बाद वो तबाक़ ब सद आजिज़ी उसके सामने रख दिया. ताजिर ने ग़ौर से देखा, तो ये वही खाने थे जिनके लिए फ़क़ीर ने दुआ की थी. फ़क़ीर ने ख़्वाहिश के मुत़ाबिक़ इसमें से खाया और बाक़ी खाना वापस कर दिया.
ताजिर ने खाना लाने वाले शख़्स को अल्लाह तआला का वास्ता देकर पूछा- “क्या तुम इन्हें पहले से जानते हो”?
खाना लाने वाले शख़्स ने जवाब दिया- “ब खुदा, हरगिज़ नहीं, मैं एक मज़दूर हूं, मेरा जमाई और बेटी साल भर से इन खानों की ख़्वाहिश रखते थे, मगर मुहैया नहीं हो पाते थे. आज मुझे मज़दूरी में एक मिस्क़ाल (यानी साढ़े चार माशा) सोना मिला, तो मैंने उससे गोश्त वग़ैरह ख़रीदा और घर ले आया. मेरी बीवी खाना पकाने में मसरूफ़ थी कि इस दौरान मेरी आंख लग गई. आंखें तो क्या सोईं, सोई हुई क़िस्मत अंगड़ाई लेकर जाग उठी. मुझे ख़्वाब में सरवरे-दो आलम सल्लल्लाहु तआला अलैहि व सल्लम का जलवा-ए-ज़ैबा नज़र आ गया और हुज़ूर अलैहिस्सलाम ने अपने मुबारक लबों को जुम्बिश दी और फ़रमाया-
“आज तुम्हारे इलाक़े में अल्लाह तआला का एक वली आया हुआ है. उसका क़याम मस्जिद में है, जो खाने तुमने अपने बीवी बच्चों के लिए तैयार करवाए हैं, उन खानों की उसे भी ख़्वाहिश है. उसके पास ले जाओ वो अपनी ख़्वाहिश के मुत़ाबिक़ खाकर वापस कर देगा, बक़िया में अल्लाह तआला तेरे लिए बरकत अता फ़रमाएगा और मैं तुम्हारे लिए जन्नत की ज़मानत देता हूं”.
नींद से उठकर मैंने हुक्म की तामील की, जिसे तुमने भी देखा.
वो ताजिर कहने लगा- “मैंने इन्हें इन्हीं खानों के लिए दुआ मांगते सुना था. तुमने इन खानों पर कितनी रक़म ख़र्च की”?
उस शख़्स ने जवाब दिया- “मिस्क़ाल भर सोना”.
उस ताजिर ने पेशकश की- क्या ऐसा हो सकता हैं कि मुझसे दस मिस्क़ाल सोना ले लो और उस नेकी में मुझेभी हिस्सेदार बना लो”?
उस शख़्स ने कहा- “ये नामुमकिन है”.
ताजिर ने इज़ाफ़ा करते हुए कहा- “अच्छा मैं तुझे बीस मिस्क़ाल सोना दे देता हूं”.
उस शख़्स ने अपने इंकार को दोहराया. फिर उस ताजिर ने सोने की मिक़दार बढ़ाकर पचास फिर सौ मिस्क़ाल कर दी, मगर वो शख़्स अपने इंकार पर डटा रहा और कहने लगा- “वल्लाह, जिस शै की ज़मानत रसूले-अकरम सल्लल्लाहु तआला अलैहि वसल्लम ने दी है, अगर तू उसके बदले सारी दुनिया की दौलत भी दे दे फिर भी मैं उसे फ़रोख़्त नहीं करूंगा, तुम्हारी क़िस्मत में ये चीज़ होती, तो तुम मुझसे पहले कर सकते थे”.
ताजिर निहायत नादिम और परेशान होकर मस्जिद से चला गया, गोया उसने अपनी क़ीमती चीज़ खो दी हो.
Unlike other ways, we begin with Zikr and then give sohbet/advise to the followers, normally a spiritul talk delivered by the Shaykh or his Deputy (Khalifa)
Other ways (Sufi/non Sufi) lack either Zikr or Sohbet, but it is clear from the traditions, Sunnah that the Sunnah assemblies are gathered both Zikr and Sohbet in it.

Book 35, Number 6505:
Abu Huraira(R.A) reported Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying Allah has mobile (squads) of angels, who have no other work (to attend to but) to follow the assemblies of Dhikr and when they find such assemblies in which there is Dhikr (of Allah) they sit in them and some of them surround the others with their wings till the space between them and the sky of the world is fully covered, and when they disperse (after the assembly of Dhikr is adjourned) they go upward to the heaven and Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, asks them although He is best informed about them: Where have you come from?
They say: We come from Thine servants upon the earth who had been glorifying Thee (reciting Subhan Allah), uttering Thine Greatness (saying Allah o-Akbar) and uttering Thine Oneness (La ilaha ill Allah) and praising Thee (uttering al-Hamdu Lillah) and begging of Thee.
Be would say: What do they beg of Me?
They would say: They beg of Thee the Paradise of Thine.
He (God) would say: Have they seen My Paradise?
They said: No, our Lord.
He would say: (What it would be then) if they were to see Mine Paradise?
They (the angels) said: They seek Thine protection. He (the Lord) would say: Against what do they seek protection of Mine?
They (the angels) would say: Our Lord, from the Hell-Fire.
He (the Lord) would say: Have they seen My Fire?
They would say: No.
He (the Lord) would say: What it would be if they were to see My Fire?
They would say: They beg of Thee forgiveness.
He would say: I grant pardon to them, and confer upon them what they ask for and grant them protection against which they seek protection.
They (the angels) would again say: Our Lord, there is one amongst them such and such simple servant who happened to pass by (that assembly) and sat there along with them (who had been participating in that assembly).
He (the Lord) would say: I also grant him pardon, for they are a people the seat-fellows of whom are in no way unfortunate.
Volume 1, Book 12, Number 802:
Narrated Abu Ma’bad(R.A):(the freed slave of Ibn ‘Abbas) Ibn ‘Abbas told me, “In the lifetime of the Prophet it was the custom to celebrate Allah’s praises aloud after the compulsory congregational prayers.” Ibn ‘Abbas further said, “When I heard the Dhikr, I would learn that the compulsory congregational prayer had ended.”
Book 4, Hadith Number 1211:Ibn ‘Abbas(R.A) reported: Dhikr (mentioning the name of Allah) in a loud voice after obligatory prayers was (a common practice) during the lifetime of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) ; and when I heard that I came to knew that they (the people) had finished the prayer.
Narrated Mu’adh ibn Jaba(R.A): The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: (The reward of) prayer, fasting and remembrance of Allah is enhanced seven hundred times over (the reward of) spending in Allah‘s path. (Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14, Hadith 2492)
ZIKR AFTER OBLIGATORY SALAH (PRAYERS):
Salafis do not engage in loud Zikr or Zikr after Salah in their masjids. Because they claim they are salafis who follow Quran and Sunnah according to Salaf Saliheen, it is clear that their claim is false and a big lie against Salafs!
Salafs include Prophet(s.a.w) and his generations, generation after them and generations after them.
So the claim of salafis that they follow salafs but clearly they do not follow when we see this hadiths, so their claim is against Prophet (s.a.w) and sahaba (Companions).
See Sahih Bukhari Book 3 Hadith 106-110: (Read below):
And Prophet (s.a.w) said: “Narrated ‘Ali: The Prophet said, “Do not tell a lie against me for whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then he will surely enter the Hell-fire.”
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Az-Zubair: I said to my father, ‘I do not hear from you any narration (Hadith) of Allah s Apostle as I hear (his narrations) from so and so?” Az-Zubair replied. l was always with him (the Prophet) and I heard him saying “Whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then (surely) let him occupy, his seat in Hell-fire.
Narrated Anas: The fact which stops me from narrating a great number of Hadiths to you is that the Prophet said: “Whoever tells a lie against me intentionally, then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”
Narrated Salama: I heard the Prophet saying, “Whoever (intentionally) ascribes to me what I have not said then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Name yourselves with my name (use my name) but do not name yourselves with my Kunya name (i.e. Abu-l Qasim). And whoever sees me in a dream then surely he has seen me for Satan cannot impersonate me. And whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally), then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”
So why Salafis lying to the world that they follow Quran and Sunnah/they are ahlul hadith?, why they are lying they follow salaf?, think about, can lying people be guided ones?
Why they abandon sunnah?
In South India, if salafi pray in a shafi madhab following Masjid, they normally run away as soon as obligatory prayer finish!
Because they think ZIkr after salah is a great evil and bidah!
Loud Zikr: Narrated Abu Ma’bad: (the freed slave of Ibn ‘Abbas) Ibn ‘Abbas told me, “In the lifetime of the Prophet it was the custom to celebrate Allah’s praises aloud after the compulsory congregational prayers.” Ibn ‘Abbas further said, “When I heard the Dhikr, I would learn that the compulsory congregational prayer had ended.” (Sahih Bukhari,Book 12, Hadith 802)
Sunan Ibn Majah Vol 5 Darussalam Publications)
It was narrated from Abu Darda that the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Shall I not tell you of the best of your deeds, the most pleasing to your Sovereign (Allah Malik), those that raise you most in status, and that are better than giving gold and silver,or meeting your enemy (in battle) and you strike their necks and they strike your necks?”. They said: “What is that, O Messenger of Allah?
He said: “Remembering Allah (Dhikr) Hasan,Hadith Number 3790
It was narrated that Abu Hurairah and Abu Sa’eed both bore witness that the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “No people sit in a gathering remembering Allah,. But the angles surround them, mercy covers them, tranquility descends upon them and Allah remembers them before those who are with Him” Sahih , Hadith Number 3791
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (R.A) that the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Allah says: ‘I am with My Slave when he remembers Me, and his lips move saying My Name” (Sahih, Hadith Number 3792)
Zikr for those who have less knowledge in Shari’ah:
Some scholars claim you cannot follow the Tariqah unless you have sound knowledge of Shariah, some say Tariqah is after completeting shariah!
This is not true, they are trying to keep people away from ahlu Tariqah (people of Zikr)!
It was narrated from Abdullah bin Busr(R.A) that a Bedouin said to the Messenger of Allah (salla allahu alaihi wa sallam):
“The Laws of Islam are burdensome for me. Tell me of something that I will be able to adhere to. He said: ‘Always keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah, the Mighty and Sublime” (Hassan, Hadith Number 3793)
The Best Zikr:
Jabir Ibn Abdullah (r.a) said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) say: “The best of remembrance is “La Ilaha illa Allah (none has the right to be worshiped but Allah), and the best supplication is “Al-Hamdu Lillah (Praise is to Allah)” Hasan, Hadith Number: 3800
Today, we can see that only Sufi Tariqah (Jama’ath) does Zikr of Allah in proper and uniform manner. No ZIkr circles under a spiritual guide, exists in misguided sects!
They have forgotten this sunnah and running to attack others!
They are trying to label the mark of beast on Muslims, the mark of beast is Kafir (kfra) written on Dajjal’s forehead, the people of Dajjal running around to label Muslims with same mark (Mushrik/Kafir)
BE IN THE ZIKR GROUP OF THOSE WHO ARE GUIDED:
The Golden Rule:
Quran 36:21 Follow those who do not ask you for any wage and who have received guidance.
One who really guided will not ask you any payment/wage in performing zikr prayer or religious service.
Quran miraculously distinguish between real group of Zikr and people who sell the religion (Zikr/Barakah/Knowledge of deen etc)!
So you do not get confused which group of people are the real people of Allah (Rijal Allah)
True guidedoes not make money from religion unless it is given as Sadaqa(charity) /Hadya (gift)
“The likeness of the one who Remembers his Lord and the one who does not Remember Him is like that between the living and the dead” (Sahih Bukhari).
ZIKR WITHOUT SHAYKH AND TARIQAH:
There is an Imam/Amir for every Assembly, Zikr without Imam is not Accepted!
Zikr Without A Shaykh is Not Accepted?
For the Question:
“Why I can’t do Zikr myself without a Shaykh and an Ijazah (Permission)?
The Answer is given in the Book: Khala’idul Jawahir:182
“من يذكر الله تعالي بلا شيخ لا الله حصل له ولا نبيه ولا شيخه “
“Whoever do Zikr without a Shaykh,as well as he has no Shaykh,he will not get Allah and he will not get Allah’s Beloved Rasool (alaihiswalathu wa salam)”Khala’idul Jawahir:182
The great venerable Shafi’e Fiqh Scholar from Malabar region of South India, “Shaykh Zainuddin Maqdum-1 (radiyallahu Anhu) who was a worldwide renowned scholar in Shafi Madhab is saying about the importance of having a Shaykh and Ijazah(permission) and the Adab (Discipline) of doing Zikr and Dua, in His Book “Adkiya”
ثم اشتغل بالورد لا تتكلمن مستقبلا ومراقبا ومهلّلا
بطريقة معهودة لمشائخ لتري به نارا ونورا حاصلا
فيضئ وجه القلب بالنور الجلي ويصيرمذموم الطبائع زائلا
“Then you turn towards Qibla and sit in the Meditation (Muraqaba) and recite “Tahleel” and hard work with the Zik (Wird-The Regular Zikr), you got from the Shaykhs of the well known tarikat, Do not talk,Then you will find the light(Noor) and warmthness (relief) in you and your heart will shine through the removal of dirty charecters and habits in you” (Adkiya).
Imam Swawi (Radiyallahu Anhu) says:
من هنا انّ الذاكر لا ينتفع بالذكر ولا ينور باطنه الا اذاكان الشيخ عارفا اذنه في ذالك و الذاكر مشتاقا -حاشية الصاوي”
“If anyone want to benefit from the Zikr he is doing and to purify the heart with light (Noor), then he must take the permission (ijazah) of a spiritual knower of Allah (Shaykh Arif billah) and should do Zikr with most sincere way”.SWAVI-1:224
“Those who do not have a Shaykh, their Shaykh is Satan”-Saying of Sulthanul Awliya Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani (Qaddasallahu Sirrahul Azeez)
So that, the Question “Is that not enough to Do Zikr without a Shaykh?” is not right!
Forgive me for poor English translation
Global ecological trends show that we face the risk of tipping points and irreversible changes in the environment and in its capacity to support and sustain human life in all its dimensions. This state of imbalance and pollution is referred to as “fassad” in Islam which is attributed to human-made actions. Transforming society and the world’s economy to a sustainable basis presents the most significant challenge to the 21st century.
It is inspiring to harness local knowledge and culture to inform sustainability. Islam as a worldview and a way of life can provide a fresh outlook to human-environmental in a globalized market economy. Environment and sustainable development is a neutral platform for dialogue between cultures in East and West since ecology is about “interdependence” and “social learning”.
Islamic Development Model
Islamic worldview not only defines what constitutes a good life “Hayat Tayebah” but also can guide, inform and reform the current development model. The Islamic development model is based on living lightly on Earth (Zohd) to limit our ecological footprints. The Islamic worldview can add the 4th dimension to the sustainability model (ecology, society and economy); i.e., faith and spirituality. Islamic discourse offers a sense of hope and optimism about the possibility of re-alignment of human compass. There is a hope, if humans can re-think and re-adjust the dominant development models, life styles and mind sets as stated in the Holy Quran:
ظَهَرَ الْفَسَادُ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِي النَّاسِ لِيُذِيقَهُم بَعْضَ الَّذِي عَمِلُوا لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ
Corruption has appeared in both land and sea
Because of what people’s own hands have brought
So that they may taste something of what they have done
So that hopefully they will turn back
Qur’an 30: 41
The essence of Islam is being in a state of harmony and “natural state” (fitra) and in respecting balance (mizan) and proportion (mikdar) in the systems of the universe. All these notions embedded in the Islamic value system can provide an ethical dimension for Muslims on the climate change issue. Translating this into the technical terms of measuring the concentration of climate in parts per million (ppm). The climate debate is about the increase in the concentration or proportion of greenhouse gases which can be measured in ppm. Due to human development model and consumption patterns, we are seeing an increase in carbon dioxide concentrations of more than 420 ppm as compared to pre-industrial levels of 280 ppm.
Addressing climate change, from an Islamic perspective, is about assuming the human role as a trustee and steward (khalifah) and the role of the median community (ummah wassat) to enjoin good and forbid evil and ensure harmony, balance, and right proportion (fitra). This balance has been disturbed due to human choices which result in overconsumption, overexploitation and overuse of resources. The ethical dimension of Islam is about linking theory and practice through evolving new consciousness and spiritual development. Embodying Islam in turn will lead to environmental activism to save the integrity of planet through protecting life on earth and to respect of rights of other species and the protection of the diversity of all communities of life.
Climate Change Global Debates in 2015
As for preparing for Climate Change global debates in 2015, parties to the Convention have agreed to set an upper limit on acceptable warming at 2 0C above the pre-industrial level by the end of this century. This decision was based on political judgment informed by science. There are significant risks associated with any level of warming and many Parties call for stabilisation well below 2 0C aiming to be as close to 1.5 0C as possible.
The science is clear. Due to the fact that warming from carbon dioxide persists for many centuries, any upper limit on warming requires net carbon dioxide emissions to eventually fall to zero. Avoiding dangerous climate change therefore requires fundamental economic transformation, not fine tuning of existing systems, leading to deep, and later full, decarbonisation of energy supply. This transition will bring multiple other benefits and open up huge opportunities. So the moral and economic imperatives are therefore fully aligned.
The objective of Paris meeting in 2015 is to significantly accelerate this transition and to ensure that it can be sustained over time to ensure that warning will be limited to well under 20C this century. The outcome will be a new legal instrument under the Climate Convention, which is an international treaty with universal membership, to come into effect in 2020.
Significance of Islamic Climate Change Declaration
To sustain the economic transformation over time, there is a need for strong and deep moral motivation for change. Religion can become a powerful part of the solution if we tap into this source of divine guidance through study and reflection and if this motivates us to act differently. The Islamic declaration on climate change, launched in Istanbul on 19th August 2015, is a profound example of the role of faith in informing and reforming sustainability dialogue. This makes faith-based climate engagement essential, considering that 84% of the world’s population is religiously affiliated, according to the Pew Research Center.
Islam has been the motive force behind civilization through history. The declaration can help to channel the spiritual and moral force of Islam towards the aspiration to build a low-emission climate resilient future.
In sum, Islam counts amongst its faithful 1.6 billion people. Many of them, perhaps the majority, are in countries which are most vulnerable to climate change. The Muslim leadership can contribute to global discourse as manifested in the Islamic declaration of climate change. Muslims have a mandate and responsibility to channelize the spiritual and moral force of Islam towards the aspiration to build a sustainable human civilization and a low-emission climate resilient future.
Answering Wahhabism:Isthighasa from Grave&Calling Up on The Pious In The Grave is Not Shirk Not Bid’ah!!!
Wahhabis saying:those in the grave do not hear or respond! and it is shirk to speak to those in the grave, But It is Sunnah to give salam to those in the grave!, So isn’t it Wajib (Obligatory) to respond to salam?.
So After you read this Post, ask yourself:
– Why I am following those who call Muslims as grave worshipers,mushrik and kafir?
-Why I am followoing those who spread hatred division and fitnah among Muslims?
– Why I am following the deviants and liars?
-Why I am following those who slander Muslims accusing them Shirk and Kufr?
If you are still following Salafist/Wahhabist/ahle hadith sect then we say: we are sorry for you, we pray that may Allah guide you into Truth and Correct Path, the Path of those whom ALLAH has bestowed His Favor (Quran 1:7)
Warning Upon Not Replying To The Salaam
It has been narrated from Abdur Rahmaan ibn Shayba; he says the Holy Prophet Peace & Blessings Be Upon Himsaid, “A rider should give salaam to a walking person, a walking person should give salaam to a seated person, a small group should give salaam to a larger group, whoever then responds to salaam, it is for his benefit, and he who does not respond to salaam, is not from amongst us.”
So the Purpose of greeting Salam to the people of the grave is for their Benefit, So according to the conditions to benefit from Salam, salam must be responded!.
Because if the Salam is to the benefit of the only living person, then he can benefit from the living brothers and sisters near him, by giving salams to them.
We can see that there is a mutual benefit for the dead and alive by visiting grave and greeting them, and they will reply to our salams, as it is wajib and Prophetic command to reply to Salam!
Ibn Sunni has narrated this and also Imaam Bukhari in his book Al Adabul Mufrad. On these bases Imam Nawawi in his commentary of Sahih Muslim has said, “To commence salaam is Sunnah and to reply is Wajib.” Similarly Hafiz ibn Abdul Bar says, “It is an unanimous agreement of the Muslims that to commence Salaam is Sunnah and to reply is Wajib.”
So it is sure than the Mumin (true believer) in the grave will be able to respond to salam and call, whether he is alive in this world or alive in the next world
Allah Inspires us with such small example to refute this false sects: called Wahhabi/Ahle Hadith/Muwahid/Salafi etc!
“My lord commanded me to come to Baqi’ and seek forgiveness for them. (Ayesha) says: I asked him how one should seek forgiveness to which the Holy Prophet (s) replied: Say Peace (Salaam) be upon the people of this place from the believers and muslims, May God have mercy on those who have left and those who are to follow. We shall join you all very soon.Sunan al-Nasa’i, vol. 3 p. 76; and Sahih Muslim, vol. 3, p. 64 chapter of visiting grave
Peace be with you the groups of believers and we will be return to you and rely on you and certainly if God wishes, we will join you. O God, have mercy on all those (buried) in Baqi’ al-Garqad Sunan al-Nasa’i,
The Prophet (s) used to teach them that when they go out to graves they should say: Peace be with those who live in houses (graves). Peace be with you the groups of believers and muslims. Certainly if God wishes, we will be joiners to you. We ask safety for ourselves and yourselves.Sahih Muslim, vol. 3, p. 110 chapter of visiting graves
Fatima (‘a), daughter of the Holy Prophet (s), used to visit every Friday the grave of her uncle Hamza and recite prayer (salat) and cry sadly at his grave.
al-Hakim, Mustadrak al-sahihayn,
“The Holy Prophet (s) visited the grave of his mother and cried near her grave and also made others around him to cry. Thereafter he said: I have taken permission from my Lord to visit the grave of my mother. You too should visit the graves because such a visit will remind you of death. Sahih Muslim, vol. 3, p. 65, chapter of Ziyara of Graves
Istighasa (Seeking Help from those who Dead) from Graves:
Anas also said that the Messenger of Allah said: “On the night when I was taken on my Night Journey (Al-Isra’), I passed by Musa, who was standing, praying in his grave.” This was also recorded by Muslim.
Prophet Moses (A.S) being Omnipresent Both on His Grave and In the Heaven and Prophet Muhammad (S.a.w) taking Istighasa from him:
THE EVENT OF PROPHET’S AL ISRA WAL MIRAJ-NIGHT OF ASCENSION:
PROPHET MUHAMMAD (S.A.W) SEEKING ISTHIGHASA FROM PROPHET MOSES (A.S)
- Here we must ask some questions to our self!
Why Allah put Prophet Moses (A.S) an Intermediary between Him and Prophet Muhammad (S.a.w)
Allah did not know how much Muslims can pray a day?
Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala teaching us about importance of Waseela and Istighasa from pious ones through this act of Prophet (S.a.w) repeatedly coming and going between Allah and Prophet Musa (A.S)!
As mentioned in Sura Isra verse 80 (17#80)
Say: “O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid (me).”
So we see that not only ordinary Muslims like us should make Isthighasa/Waseela but it is even made necessary for His Prophets to seek waseela/istigasa between them!
Only those who are fooled by Shaitan, will say Isthighasa and Waseela is shirk and Bidah!
Isthighasa of Sahaba at the Grave of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)
Here is proof from QUR’AN, Ahadith-e-Nabawi (Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam), Sayings of Sahab-e-Kiram and from the writings of great and authentic scholars of Islam and writings of those who declare this as SHIRK, BID’AT etc. which show beyond a shadow of a doubt that Visiting Graves and Shrines of Anbia (Alaihimus Salam) and Aulia ALLAH (Rehmatullah Alaihi Ajamaien) is Lawful.
What does HOLY QURAN says: (added from old blog)
1. Holy Quran says:
Proof for asking forgiveness to Prophet at the time or after the time of Prophet(at the grave):
“And when they impose on their lives (sin), they must come to your (the Nabi’s) presence, then seek repentance from ALLAH and the Rasool(Peace Be Upon Him) also asks for their forgiveness. Then, they will indeed find ALLAH Most Forgiving and Compassionate.” (An-Nisa:61)
2. Holy Quran says (summary is): “No Doubt ALLAH and his Prophet and those who offer prayers, zakat are helpers”. (Al-Maaidah:55)
3. Holy Quran says (summary is): “Verily, ALLAH helps them and Jibril and Saaleh Mumineen and then angels are helpers”. (Al-Tehreem:4)
4. Holy Quran says: “Lo! Verily, the friends of ALLAH are (those) on whom fear (cometh) not, nor do they grieve.” (Surah Younus:61)
What does Ahaadeeth-e-Nabawi says:
1. Syyeduna Rasoolullah said:

By the Divine Grace of Almighty Allah, this brief but informative answer will suffice to remove doubts from the hearts and minds of the Muslims created by the notorious Wahabi.
And Allah saying in next line those who prevailed best in their affairs (those who acted the best) said to build a Mosque over their Grave.
And it is a waste of time and irrelevant and Prohibited you and me going to make Mosque on our or our relatives grave.
What you said above is applicable to you and to me.
|Insha Allah you will have some witness .|
Allah wanted to make pious people life know to next generations and people…so the people said to construct a building..But Allah calling the people among them who asked to Build a Masjid over their grave as “Best People”
PROPHET’S PREDICTION ABOUT EMERENCE OF WAHHABI /SALAFI ISLAM:
Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman said, “People used to ask the Prophet, peace be upon him, about good things, but I used to ask him about bad things because I was afraid that they might overtake me. I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, we were lost in ignorance (jahiliyyah) and evil, then Allah brought this good (i.e. Islam). Will some evil come after this good thing?’ He said, ‘Yes’ I asked, ‘And will some good come after that evil?’ He said, ‘Yes, but it will be tainted with some evil’ I asked, ‘How will it be tainted?’ He said, ‘There will be some people who will lead others on a path different from mine. You will see good and bad in them.’ I asked, ‘Will some evil come after that good?’ He said, ‘Some people will be standing and calling at the gates of Hell; whoever responds to their call, they will throw him into the Fire.’ I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, describe them for us.’ He said, ‘They will be from our own people, and will speak our language.’ I asked, ‘What do you advise me to do if I should live to see that?’ He said, ‘Stick to the main body (jama’ah) of the Muslims and their leader (imam).’ I asked, What if there is no main body and no leader?’ He said, ‘Isolate yourself from all of these sects, even if you have to eat the roots of trees until death overcomes you while you are in that state.’ “
- The people Prophet (s.a.w) warned us, who will come in the end of times, very close to the time when there will no Imam of the Muslims!
- They are from Arabs and speak Arabic (not Iraqis, Bahrainis or Iranis) Another Hadith narrates they will come from Najd (east of Madinah)
- Prophet (s.a.w) warned about their time, and told Hudayfa R.A to stick to the main body of Muslims and their Imam. In that time,according to the chronology Hudayfa R.A asked and Prophet s.a.w replied, stick to the main body of Muslims and their Imam (Khalifa) were Ottomans, they were Hanafi Madhab following Sunni-Sufi Muslims. Salafis have worst enmity towards Hanafi madhab and Imam Abu Hanifa (R.A)
But we see from the words of Prophet (s.a.w) that says to stick with the main body of Muslims (who were Hanafi and Sufi creed) when the fitna arise in Muslim world in 1800s, then after that Prophet (s.a.w) commanding Hudayfa R.A to isolate from all the fitnah wahhabi sects and groups!
- Then Hudayfa (R.A) asked further what will happen thereafter, and said:”What if there is no main body and their Imam?”
As we see, the main body of Muslims and their Imams have expelled from Arabia and Arabia became Saudi Arabia and Wahhabism became it’s sponsored official religion ,Prophet (s.a.w) advise Hudayfa (R.A) to stay away from all this groups and isolate until he meet his LORD!The above hadith is a clear mirror about the correct creed of Islam, it’s caliphate (Hanafi Sufi Ottomans) and it’s destruction and the emergence of the callers (Wahhabis) to the Hell fire and total absence of Khalifa until end of Times (until the coming of Mahdi and Messiah Peace be upon them)
When asked about which group will be on the right path, the Beloved Messenger of Allah replied, “The group on the right path, which will enter Paradise, will be the group which follows my Sunnah and this will be the largest group of Muslims.”
[Tirmidhi; Imam Ahmad; Abu Dawud; Mishkat]
The Beloved Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be eternally upon him, said, “Without doubt, my Ummah will never be gathered in misguidance. Whenever you see disagreement, hold fast to the greater majority.”
The Beloved Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be eternally upon him, said, “”Follow the way of the largest group of Muslims! For he who deviates from this group will be thrown into Hell!”
