HIDDEN IDOL WORSHIP (POLYTEHISM) AND OPEN IDOL WORSHIP!
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Some Muslims worship Allah to seek their gods (Money/Car/House/authority etc) that are attached to their heart!
Some polytheists worship some idols of their choice as a sutra/Qibla to direct their hearts to Allah Almighty!
Therefore, one of the greatest Saints , Hazret Ibn Arabi (Q.S) said to the people of Damasucs: “The God you worship is under my feet”!.
Since the people were worshipping their desires as their God (Ilaah), their hearts and ears were sealed , just as the Jews did not understand the arguments of Prophet Isa (A.S), Jesus Christ, they turned against Saint Ibn Arabi (q.s) in vain!
So it is written in the Book of Allah:
Quran 25:43 Have you seen the one who takes as his god his own desire? Then would you be responsible for him?
Quran 45:23 Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil? So who will guide him after Allah ? Then will you not be reminded?
وَمَا يُؤْمِنُ أَكْثَرُهُم بِاللَّهِ إِلَّا وَهُم مُّشْرِكُونَ
Wama yu/minu aktharuhum biAllahi illa wahum mushrikoona
Quran 12:106 And most of them do not believe in Allah without associating others (with Him).
Quran 42:15 Now then, for that (reason), call (them to the Faith), and stand steadfast as thou art commanded, nor follow thou their vain desires; but say: “I believe in the Book which Allah has sent down; and I am commanded to judge justly between you. Allah is our Lord and your Lord: for us (is the responsibility for) our deeds, and for you for your deeds. There is no contention between us and you. Allah will bring us together, and to Him is (our) Final Goal.
Quran 49:14 The bedouins say, “We have believed.” Say, “You have not [yet] believed; but say [instead], ‘We have submitted,’ for faith has not yet entered your hearts. And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, He will not deprive you from your deeds of anything. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
Imam Nawawi 40 HADITH 1
On the authority of Omar bin Al-Khattab, who said : I heard the messenger of Allah (Swalla ALLAHU alaihi wa Sallam) say : “Actions are but by intention and every man shall have but that which he intended. Thus he whose migration was for Allah and His messenger, his migration was for Allah and His messenger, and……..
he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated.” related by Bukhari and Muslim
So look at now, where you are standing in this world! Are you like those open polytheists, or like the hidden polytheists? or like the true believers?
Quran 6:79 Indeed, I have turned my face toward He who created the heavens and the earth, inclining toward truth, and I am not of those who associate others with Allah.”
Did you really turn your face to your LORD? or Is there other faces (money, house, luxury etc) after your LORD, for which you use HE ALMIGHTY to take you to those Faces you admire?
THEREFORE SPIRITUAL PURIFICATION NEEDED:
Quran 91:9-10 He has succeeded who purifies it,And he will indeed fail who corrupts it.
Narrated An-Nu’man bin Bashir: (R.A)
I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, ‘Both legal and illegal things are evident but in between them there are doubtful (suspicious) things and most of the people have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from these suspicious things saves his religion and his honor. And whoever indulges in these suspicious things is like a shepherd who grazes (his animals) near the Hima (private pasture) of someone else and at any moment he is liable to get in it. (O people!) Beware! Every king has a Hima and the Hima of Allah on the earth is His illegal (forbidden) things. Beware! There is a piece of flesh in the body if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt and that is the heart. (Sahih Bukhari/40 Hafith Nawawi)
so then why people not taking heed to purify their heart? to come to the path of the Awliya Allah, follow them as they should be followed?
So we can see that the worst shirk is hidden shirk (polytheism), as a hidden polytheist use Allah to reach to his gods in vain! (the gods of human traditions, as stated in the Gospel of Isa A.S) such (false) gods are ” power, authority, wealth, luxuries and so on. This will make man to claim lordship and blind him from the remembrance and obedience to the True Almighty God!

Gallipoli Campaign:Sufi Saints in the Battlefield of the First World War
THE MIGHTY POWER OF ISLAM (SUBMISSION TO GOD IN THE WAY OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD, UPON HIM BE PEACE AND BLESSINGS:
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ala aali sayyidina Muhammadin wa sallim
Quran 9:33 It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it).
During the first world war whole world gathered against the Ottoman Khilafat , in the western sea side of Turkey near Gallipoli, but Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala sending heavenly armies to Support the legitimate Khalifa of the Messenger of Allah Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam. The Ottoman Empire Won the Battle , and in the same battle, mysterious clouds descended from sky and swept the soldiers away and no one has ever seen them since then!.
Such miraculous powers going to enter into this world during the Armageddon (World War III) when Imam Mahdi (alaihissalam) and his heavenly regiments descend to bring peace in this world and to prepare the world for the arrival of Christ (Peace be upon him), and so many groups that coming against Islam and truth will vanish in the sea and in the land, as it happened in the last political battle of Islam, the Gallipoli battle!
In the year 2014 a film was made in the Hollywood to remember this battle named: “The Water Diviner”
The first world war and vanishing of British troops

NEW ZEALAND NAVY OFFICER’S WITNESS STATEMENT:
The case of the Vanishing Battalion remained pretty much closed until the 50thanniversary of the Gallipoli landings in April 1965, when a New Zealand WWI veteran by the name of Frederick Reichardt, along with two of his compatriots, came forward with their own alleged first-hand account of what he saw on that fateful day. The story was recounted by Reichardt during a reunion of veterans and offered a bizarre, if controversial, twist on the tale of the missing battalion.
Reichardt went on record saying that they had been sappers with the New Zealand Expeditionary Force and that they had been operating in an area near a Turkish position known as Hill 60, which was not far from where the lost Norfolk Regiment had been waging war. The sapper claimed they noticed between 6 and 8 odd, grayish brown, “loaf shaped” clouds hovering over the battlefield. The weird clouds were described as being completely still even in the face of high winds at the time. Beneath these clouds was reportedly another, even larger and denser looking cloud that was estimated as being around 800 feet in length and around 200 feet high. This massive cloud was allegedly hugging the ground over a dry creek bed when the Norfolk Regiment approached, and without hesitation they proceeded to march directly into it. When the regiment had disappeared into the cloud, Reichardt claimed that it had then slowly risen upwards to join the other strange clouds, apparently taking the soldiers with it, after which they all moved off to the north in unison before disappearing from view. The story was first published in the September/October edition of the New Zealand UFO magazine Spaceview in 1965. The story would be somewhat corroborated when in 1966, another New Zealand veteran of the campaign, Gerald Wilde, toldSpaceview magazine that although he had not seen the disappearance directly, he had heard many rumors among soldiers that the entire Norfolk Regiment had disappeared into a cloud that had been straddling the ground.
SAINT OF ALLAH SHAYKH ABDUL KERIM AL KIBRISI (Q.S) SPEAKING ABOUT IT:
THE MIRACULOUS CLOUDS OF CANAKKALE (GALLIPOLI)
After the Juma prayer someone asked Sheykh Abbdul Kerim Efendi about the Canakkale War of 1915 saying, “Many are now saying that the clouds that appeared in Canakkale taking in British soldiers and disappearing, it’s just a story. Is it true?”
SUFIS IN THE WORLD WAR I
A discourse of Sufi Saint Sahibul Saif Shaikh Abdul Kerim Efendi (Q.S)*
Auzu billahi min ash-sheytanir rajim. BismillahirRahmanirRahim. Medet Ya Seyyidi Sultanul Awliya, Medet.
Millions today are making jokes about how the cloud appeared in Canakkale (Gallipoli) and took one group of British and just disappeared and still their bodies are not known anywhere. Now they are making stories. But people from that time believed because they saw and they witnessed. After them their children, they are also not believing because it’s something extraordinary. It’s showing (to the non-Muslim forces that came against the Ottoman Empire) that the God that you are worshipping is helping these people and it’s not helping you. So it’s not such a good position that you want to be in, right?
How are you going to say, “The side that we were fighting against, they were right and the Lord helped them by sending clouds and everyone disappeared in it.” It wasn’t just ten people in it. Not only that but so many other unusual things happened there. Who was in Canakkale? Our Grandsheykh (Abdullah Daghestani QS). So is it so hard for us to understand who is making all these things?
Heh, there was a General who didn’t like the Grandsheykh. And a bomb flew and fell into the area where the Grandsheykh and everyone were in. Almost everybody died or became wounded. Where Gransheykh was, where it fell, it just became a big hole and Grandsheykh was sitting and praying there. The General was shocked and he came down to the Grandsheykh. He kissed his hand and said, “I didn’t believe in God. I didn’t believe in anything but I believe you from now on because I have seen with my eyes what had happened.” He said, “You are a different individual from everything else.” And that General started following the Grandsheykh.
Not only Grandsheykh but so many other Sheykhs and Saints entered into that war. 250,000 people died. It’s not 250. Two hundred and fifty thousand people died there in that short time. Only from the Turks. Almost 300,000 died from the other side. Over 300,000 people. You are talking about more than half a million people dying in those waters and in those lands there. Everywhere you are stepping on there are bodies underneath it. I spent three nights there and early in the morning when I was calling the Azan, I was calling the Azan very strongly early in the morning, (there was one tomb, that of Suleyman Pasha, he did great things there too) near his tomb and I was going there for prayer and you can see in far distance the lights of the Greek islands there, right on the border. People came from the other side. In the morning when I was calling the Azan right before dawn, things were setting down and I was seeing all these beautiful rains of light coming down. Like rain drops light was coming down and with that different smells were coming. And there was a voice speaking to me saying that all those drops are representing all those soldiers, and everyone has a different smell.
So everywhere I was walking I was seeing different lights. I was walking, passing through their tomb sites and you would think that there are so many tombs there but it’s not. In the mountains and everywhere you see that light connection coming from the Paradise to there, from their tombs going up. That’s why people who don’t have strong spirituality cannot live around there. It’s pretty heavy for them. People who have high spirituality want to live there all the time but they don’t leave them too because you discover so many secrets there. It opens up. Unless you are keeping the secrets, then they keep you there for some time. Otherwise (they don’t).
You can see that all those areas are not packed up with things. Everywhere is almost empty. In the villages, you see the people, you look at their faces, no arguments, just peace coming from their faces and they are always walking, going back and forth but no talking. No sound. It’s like a dead valley. No sound. It’s like a different world that you are living in. Even just an ordinary person can feel that right away and understands that it’s completely different here now. Huh, all those soldiers, British, ANZAC, all those are very happy to be buried there. They are saying, “Mistakenly we have fallen into Paradise.” (Sheykh Efendi smiles). Everything smells different. The flowers smell different there, the mountain flowers, they all have different smells and different colors. You can see that heavenly look on everything there. All the stones they put there are symbolic. They are not underneath there. They just carried so many of them and they buried them in mass graves and they put those stones there.
But there are special places where special incidents happened. Those areas are completely different. You see how it is there. But you can see it on the stones. Every stone that you pass, the age that all died were 19, 20, 21. Did you see the trench? The war trench behind which they were hiding? You didn’t go there? (Sheykh Effendi asked a murid). ‘X’ replied, ‘No, I didn’t. Then you didn’t see anything what the soldiers they built. Do you know how close they came to each other? From here to there where `Y’ is sitting (approx. 10 meters).
The world has never seen a war like that before. Never. No way that it can get that close. You have trenches here and you have trenches there (Sheykh Efendi pointing to the two opposite walls of the dergah and the distance between them is about 30 ft.). That’s how close they got. Everything was so close there. The fear and the smell of death and the smell of the love of Paradise that kept those people keep on coming and going. People without faith cannot stand there. The other ones had no choice because they were dumped there with ships. So they had no place to go now. So many were brought from the Subcontinent countries. They were Muslims. Afghanis and (today’s) Pakistanis. So many were put in ships and brought there (by the British) to fight the Khalifah’s soldiers. Khalifah’s soldiers! They didn’t know. They tried to give up but they (the British) said, “You cannot go anywhere. We will shoot you down into the water.” So they were fighting.
People are having everything easy now, everybody speaks on everything and Islam became a game to everybody. A game. Nothing but a game. Not accepting anything. People gave lives! Not life. Lives! One house giving three, four sons to die in that war. Can you imagine? Four sons, five sons died in that war. Three sons died and the husband died. I met a lady. Looking at her face is like looking at a heavenly person, as if heaven appeared through her face. It is not sad and it is not khek khek khek. It is a beauty that is appearing. So beautiful and calm. She was talking, she was praying and she was saying to me what happened. The husband died and three sons died. And she was saying, “Alhamdulillah. I hope I didn’t make a mistake. But I have no regret. If I had ten sons then I will give again. But I am looking at the situation of this country now and I am very sad. I think those ones will be sad too.” Looking at her face, (I saw) Paradise coming out from her face. And she said that she didn’t cry. She cried from the pain but she didn’t cry for anything and she was very happy with what Allah did. Then she was living all these years after that by herself. She had another daughter and she died too after some time. And she is still living.
Allahu Akbar! People going through all that pain, do you think it’s easy? Think on it. Just to think on it. So many people I say these to, they say `Eh.’ I say, “Compare, just compare with yourself and look what happens.” No comparison. Impossible to compare. They were believing. That’s all. They were believing in what they were doing. They were sincere with what they were doing. I met another lady. She fixed the whole village with her father’s death money that was coming. The government was not taking care of the tombs of the people, okay? And he was one of the persons who died in Canakkale and it’s near the village there. So they brought him to the village and they put him there and at that time the government put money out saying they have to take care of those areas. They did it. Then (later) everything was falling down. So she was showing me the tomb site that she fixed and she was saying to me, “He fixed it himself.”
I said, “How it happened?”
She goes, “Everything was falling down and the little money that they were giving me from the government for my father’s death, I saved little for me for whatever was necessary for me to live on, and the rest to this village. He is in the grave and with his money we are still living. He is in the grave. With his money we are still living. The village is still living with the money that is coming because of him. And they are fixing his tomb with his money.”
Allah, Allah. Unusual things are happening around there. Astaghfirullah al-Azim wa atubu ilaih. El-Fatiha.

OSMANLI NAQSHBANDI SUFI PRACTICE OF SITTING AFTER FAJR UNTIL SUNRISE :
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Followers of the Naqshbandi Haqqani Osmani Sufi Way is expected wake up an hour before Dawn and pray Tahajjud and to sit after Fajr salat (Dawn prayer) until the sunrise time (Ishraq)
One may pray Tahajjud at any time of the late night according to the Fiqh (Jurisprudence) they are following. But the Tariqah recommend to pray Tahajjud early morning before Dawn!
After the Fajr prayer, Murids (disciples) and followers of the path, to remain on the prayer mat and do the prescribed Zikr and recitation of the Holy Quran.
Some confused people consider Zikr after prayers is an innovation. But this article may help others to understand the Sufi practices and it’s validity in the external knowledge of the Sunnah!
Jabir bin Samurah(may Allah be well pleased with him) narrated: “When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) prayed Fajr he would remain seated where he had prayed until the sun had risen.” (Sahih)
Jami At-Tirmidhi 585
Anas bin Malik (Radiyallahu Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: ” Whoever prays Fajr in congregations, then sit remembering Allah until the Sun has risen, then he prays two Rak’ah, then for him is the reward like that of s Hajj and Umrah”. He said:”The Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: ‘Complete, complete, complete,.”
~ Jami At-Tirmidhi 586 (Hasan Gharib according to Imam Tirmidhi)
Reference for confused people: According to translators of Jami Tirmidhi this Hadith was graded hasan by Wahabi Al Albani
Followers of the Osmanli Naqshbandi Sufi Way, practice six Raka prayer (Salat) followed by the two Raka Sunnah prayer after Maghrib.
KISSING HAND AND FEET OF PIOUS:
Evidence for Conducting Urs/Uroos in Sahih Hadith:
Belief of Sahabi (Companion of the Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu Wa Salam):
Narrated ‘Abis bin Rabia: ‘Umar came near the black stone and kissed it and said “No doubt, I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit anyone nor harm anyone. Had I not seen Allah’s Apostle kissing you I would not have kissed you.” (Sahih Bukhari,Book 26, Hadith 667)
*Representative of the Naqshbandi Sufi Order
HADITH ON USING MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS FOR ZIKR NASHEED AND NAAT:
Abu Bakar (Radiyallahu Anhu) said: “The wind instruments of Satan in the house of the Prophet (SallaAllahu alaihi Wa Sallam)?. That was on the day of ‘Eid’ (Al Fithr). But the Prophet (Salla Allahu alaihi Wa Sallam) said: “O Abu Bakar, every people has its festival and this is our festival”. (Sahih)
Reference: Sunan Ibn Majah Vol-3 Page 90 Hadith 1898,Darussalam Publications.
Note: Bu’ath was a place about two miles from Al Madinah where on that day before Islam, a battle took place between the Ansar tribe and tribe of Aus and Khazraj.
We see that Ansar used to commemorate (Urs) the major events in the life of their ancestors.
It was Narrated from Muhammad bin Hatib that Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said :”What differentiate between the lawful and unlawful is (beating) the Duff and raising the voices (in song) at the time of marriage ” (Hasan) Sunan Ibn Majah [Arabic-english ], Vol 3, Hadith 1896, Page 89.Darussalam publications, Saudi Arabia.
Comments by the Translators: Beating Duff on the occasion of weddings serves the purpose that all the people will know about marriage. Songs,poetry etc, may also be sung at this occasion so long as it’s wording is not contrary to the teachings of the Shari’ah; and only the young girls, who are not adult, are allowed to do so. This type of entertainment is allowed during the Eid days too.
Verdict: This hadith refute Wahhabi attack on Sufi people using musical instruments and singing in the Zikr. Also, there is no prohibition or restrictions on which instrument is allowed which is prohibited. Those days only duff and drums were available, people today use electrical instruments, aren’t people using electronic Quran and sound instruments today?.
So wake up people of misguidance!
It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that the Prophet (SallaAllahu alaihi wa Sallam) passed by some part of Al -Madinah and saw some girls beating their Duff and singing,
“We are girls from Banu Najjar
What an excellent neighbour is Muhammad”
The Prophet (SallaAllahu alaihi Wa Sallam) said: “Allah knows that you are dear to me” (Sahih) Sunan Ibn Majah 1899, Darussalam Publishers ,Saudi Arabia (Wahabi Publishers)
COMMEMORATION OF SPECIAL DAYS (BADR URS/ASHURA ETC WITH RECITING HISTORICAL POEMS)
It was narrated that Abu Hussain , whose name was Khalid Al-Madani,said:”We were in Al Madinah on the day of Ashura,and the girls were beating Duff and singing. We entered upon Ruba’i bint Mu’awwidh and mentioned that to her. She said: “the Messenger of Allah (SallaAllahu alaihi Wa Sallam) entered upon me on the morning of my wedding, and there were two girls with me who were singing and mentioning the qualities of my forefathers who were killed on the day of Badr. One of the thing they were saying was: “Among us there is a Prophet who knows what will happen tomorrow.” He (Prophet Salla Allahu alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Do not say this, for no one knows what will happen tomorrow except Allah” (Sahih), Sunna Ibn Majah 1897
Comments: In Sufi Paths (traditional Islam), it is still a traditions to sing and commemorate the life of Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam, Sahaba ,ahlul bayth nd pious Imams and scholars.
Thise methods has a heritage and it is used as a means to keep the History and biography of Islam and Muslims alive, especially in the days when there is no abundance of paper or other methods to keep the History available to next generation, they preserved it through songs and poems and commemorated anniversaries.
Those who say this practice is Bidha and Haram, yet they run to some universities of yahudis and secularists for a Degree of Islam and write their own books and CDs to preach Islam, must be ashamed of accusing old traditional practices!
The Hadiths support that the practice of Urs (Commemoration of the martyrs and Saints) allowed.
In this Hadith , Prophet SallaAllahu alaihi Wasallam) prohibit saying: “The Prophet knows what happen tomorrow”
However, later Hadiths those especially in Bukhaari and Muslim, explains that Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam was given the Keys of heavens and earth and all knowledge is from Allah, and Allah gives Wisdom to Whoever He Will. And it is clear from other authentic hadiths from Bukhari and Muslim that Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam was given all knowledge concerning his nation!
We can see that, Music is allowed in Islam when it is used in religious ceremonies ,marriages, Islamic festivals, Dhikr gatherings etc!
We also see that Music is forbidden when it is used to incite lust ,earthly passions and to make attraction between men and women!. Even, we see that those who attack Sufis for using Music during Dhikr (Zikr) , those people (Wahabis/false tawheed groups) use music in their TV channels , for promoting their events and video trailers! They even use Hollywood film clips to promote “End of Time” subject based Dawah programs!.
You can see youtube videos of Peace TV.Huda TV etc using music in their trailers and programs. The false scholars who accuse Sufis for using Music, you can see their Youtube End of Times (Doomsday) Islamic lectures filled with music and hollywood movie clips!
Seek the Sufi Islamic Way, which is the only correct Path without any hypocrisy and double-standard!

Question and Answer on Sufi Hadara (Gathering):
Question from a Sister: I had a question about the hadra practiced in the tariqat
It somewhat resembles the hasidic dance of jews which they practice on some occasions..and we are forbidden to do anything that resembles non muslim faith…
Can u clear this for me….it is bothering my mind
wa alaikumussalam wa RahmatuAllah wa Barakathu hu Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Many Jewish practices are from the Sunna of the Prophets Israel. We should remember that, when Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam reach Madina , he (alaihiswalathu wa salam) saw Jews fastin on Ashura, and Prophet Alaihiswalathu wa salam commanded Muslims to fast, by saying “we have more right to Musa (alaihissalam) than they.
Sufi Hadra are organised by high eminent shaykhs who are scholars of the religion too.
If dancing look like Hasidic jews and Islam forbid following Jews, why then Muslims wearing the dress of non-Muslims (like Jeans, tie and suite etc)? Doesn’t islam teach Sunnah cloth? Taking bank a/c in non-Muslim Usury banks etc could be serious sin than just dancing!
Salafis wearing scarf on their head, that is a Jewish practice too!. Wearing a plain topi (Hat) on the head is also a Jewish practice, Prophetic Sunnah is to wear a Turban over the cap!. see Sunan Abu Dawud Kitab Libas!. Women Wearing Niqab is also Jewish practice. If you have doubt You can look up google for images!
We do see in Hadith that , the COmpanions of the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam used to sing and dance moderately in the Mosques and gatherings.
Imitating Jews and Christians does not mean about dancing or eating. We eatin this days as Christians and Jews We growing beard as Jews We covering head as Jews! I mean to say, Jews cover head, usually without a turban. So If Muslim cover head and not wearing a turban, should we call it muslim initiating Jews by not wearing a turban?
We cannot say that, Muslims dancing singing Zikr and Durood, Naat etc
Jews dancing singing what they learned from their religion.
Bollywood sing and dance what they promote in their movie.
All are different context.
Muslims shake their body back and forth while reciting Quran, this is common in South Asia and Africa. this is inherited from Jews? Because the Jews shake their body while reading Torah …
So we can understand that just engaging in outward movement does not make us imitators of other faith.
This is why we differ from Jews in recitation ,or time, or occasion etc.
We should remember that the Food of Ahul Kitab is allowed for us.
Islamic acts are defined by what is Haram and Halal.
Islam is complete 1400 years ago, what is allowed is allowed forever,what is forbidden (haram) is haram forever.. Since dancing existed among Sahaba and thabi’een, and it was not forbidden.
Then what is not allowed or forbidden then, because it was not practiced or existed, such matters are discussed by Mujtahideen (Chief Scholars and Imams) and given verdict through scholarly conscience and analogy.
and finally, nobody ask Fatwa about this types of dance!:
In the golden period of Islam, entire Muslim scholarship followed the way of Sufism. This is enough proof that the true path is with in Tasawwuf
Don’t worry. We have answers. And speak the truth to their face, even if they are our children, brothers sisters or relatives.
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Sallim
Madad Ya Sahibul Saif Madad Ya Sultanul Awliya
It is an irrefutable commandment in Quran and Sunnah to follow Imams and Shaykhs (leaders of the Muslims). Misguided groups does not follow Imams, however, those who say they follow Imams , they do not accept the Imams and Main body whole heartedly and completely. They choose to follow some and at the same time, they have malice hatred against some other Imams of Islam.
The Salafis who attack Sufis and Ahlu Sunnah, claim that following Imams is shirk and bidha!, but we can see 100s of Hadith which speaks about Muslim world awaiting Imam Mahdi (alaihissalam). If following Imams is shirk and bidha, how can there be Imam Mahdi (alaihissalam) in Islam.
The opponents of those who follow Imams quote the Quran verse from Sura Ma’dha verse 5
“This day, those who disbelieved have given up all hope of your religion, so fear them not, but fear Me. This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned meats), then surely, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (5:3)
They also Quote the Hadith: (ref Imam Nawawi 40 hadith)
On the authority of Abu Najeeh al-’Irbaad ibn Saariyah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) gave us a sermon by which our hearts were filled with fear and tears came to our eyes. So we said, “O Messenger of Allah! It is as though this is a farewell sermon, so counsel us.” He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “I counsel you to have taqwa (fear) of Allah, and to listen and obey [your leader], even if a slave were to become your ameer. Verily he among you who lives long will see great controversy, so you must keep to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of the Khulafa ar-Rashideen (the rightly guided caliphs), those who guide to the right way. Cling to it stubbornly [literally: with your molar teeth]. Beware of newly invented matters [in the religion], for verily every bidah (innovation) is misguidance.”[Abu Dawud] It was related by at-Tirmidhi, who said that it was a good and sound hadeeth.
The Immature and idiotic people, therefore say that, following Imams and Shaykhs, who came after Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam, is Shirk and Bidha!,they say that following their teachings is Innovation etc! They , then quote the verses in Quran and Hadith about pagans and polytheists and Hadith about Muslims imitating the priests from among Christians and Jews as following innovation in regards to following Imams and Shaykhs.
Then they appoint their own versions of Imams instead following the traditional Imams and Shaykhs from a clear and legitimate chain of authority (Silsila) and they also establish their own egoistic versions of groups and sects to follow those made up Imams and Shaykhs who come with a diploma from institutions collaborated or affiliated to the centres of disbelief and hypocrisy!
WHAT DOES QURAN SAYS ABOUT FOLLOWING IMAMS OF THE MAIN BODY?:
Quran 4:59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.
It is forbidden to dispute with those who are in authority (Ulool amri), “Amri” is Tawheed, Tawheed is the foundation of Islam, Iman and Ihsan (Foundation of deen), the Khalifa of Muslims, the Imams, the Shaykhs and Awliya Allah, all of them represent “Tawheed”. See Quran 3:18
“Ulool Ilmi” (Quran 3:18) are the Chosen inheritors of “gnosis of God’s Oneness” (thawheed), the Arifeen (inheritors of the spiritual knowledge of God’s Oneness).
They are (Such Scholars who inherit the Spiritual Wisdom of The Oneness of Allah) the heirs of the Prophets as stated in Tirmidhi. The Hadith which says: “Scholars are the heirs of the Prophets”.
Quran 9:119 O ye who believe! Be careful of your duty to Allah, and be with the truthful.
One of the duties to Allah, mentioned together in this verse is to be with the truthful. As Salafists deny the possibility to be with the dead, we emphasise on this verse by saying to follow the Siddiqin (truthful) who live among us as stated in Quran 4:59.
Therefore, it is a commandment from Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala that you must be with the truthful (Siddiqin) and follow them. It is a high station of a Mu’min after the station of the Prophets to be from among”Siddiqin”.
The religion is based on following and taking part in the companionship of the righteous and truthful Imams who are there time to time among the people in each generation.
if there is no such authority as “Ulool amri” (4:59) Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala would not have commanded to obey those who are in authority among you.
Quran 36:21 Follow those who do not ask of you [any] payment, and they are [rightly] guided.
Quran repeatedly saying Muslims to follow those who are guided among them. According to many Hadiths, the guidance and straight path is preserved with Awliya Allah and Ahlul Bayth ((the progeny of the Messenger of Allah alaihiswalathu wa salam)
Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Wahhabi publications) Hadith Number 3788: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me” (Sahih)
Tabarani narrates from Abu Dhar, who said: I heard the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam say:‘The example of my Ahl al-Bait within you is the example of the Ark of Nuh within the nation of Nuh; whoever boarded it was saved and whoever stayed behind was destroyed. It is also the example of the ‘Hitha’ of the Bani Isra’eel.’ [Tabarani in Al-Awsat, Vol. 4, Page 283, Hadith 3506 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 2, Page 427, Hadith 3312]
FOLLOWING IMAMS IN HADITH:
عَنْ أَبِي رُقَيَّةَ تَمِيمِ بْنِ أَوْسٍ الدَّارِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ: “الدِّينُ النَّصِيحَةُ.” قُلْنَا: لِمَنْ؟ قَالَ: “لِلَّهِ، وَلِكِتَابِهِ، وَلِرَسُولِهِ، وَلِأَئِمَّةِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَعَامَّتِهِمْ.”
On the authority of Tameem ibn Aus ad-Daree (ra): The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The deen (religion) is naseehah (advice, sincerity).” We said, “To whom?” He (ﷺ) said, “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.” [Sahih Muslim]
IMAM MAHDI IN HADITH:
Abu Nadra reported:” We were in the company of Jabir b. ‘Abdulldh that he said it may happen that the people of Iraq may not send their qafiz and dirhams (their measures of food stuff and their money). We said: Who would be respolisible for it? He said: The non_Arabs would prevt them. He again said: There is the possibility that the people of Syria may not send their dinar and mudd. We said: Who would be responsible for it? He said This prevention would be made by the Romans. He (Jabir b. Abdullab) kept quiet for a while and then reported Allah’, s Messengdt (may peas be upon him) having said There would be a caliph in the last (period) of my Ummah who would freely give handfuls of wealth to thd people wiothout counting it. I said to Abu Nadra and Abu al-‘Ala: DO you mean ‘Umarb. ‘Abd al-Aziz? They said: No (he would be Imam Mahdi.). (Sahih Muslim,Book 41, Hadith 6961)
IMAM AMONG MUSLIMS:
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) observed: What will be your state when the son of Mary descends amongst you and there will be an Imam amongst you? (Sahih Muslim,Book 1, Hadith 0290)
This Hadiths are enough evidence that “Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah” the Saved group, will be the people who follow Imams and Main body of Muslims, who continue to follow Imams until day of Judgement!
A GREAT IMAM IN EVERY CENTURY:
Narrated AbuHurayrah (R.A): The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Allah will raise for this community at the end of every hundred years the one who will renovate its religion for it. Ref: Sunan Abu Dawud 4278
Following Accoridng to Sunnah is to Make BAYAH (Oath of Pledge/Allegiance) and Follow wholeheartedly:
Narrated Abdullah bin Dinar: ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Umar wrote to ‘Abdul Malik bin marwan, swearing allegiance to him: ‘I swear allegiance to you in that I will listen and obey what is in accordance with the Laws of Allah and the Tradition of His Apostle as much as I can.’ (Bukhari Book 92, Hadith 377)
HAZRET ABU HURAIRAH (RADIYALLAHU ANHU) AS IMAM:
Salim bin Hayyan (RA) said: I heard my father say: I heard Abu Hurairah (R.A) say: “I grew up as an orphan and I emigrated as a poor man,and I was hired by the daughter of Ghazwan in return for food and a turn riding the camel. I would gather firewood for them when they stopped to camp and urge their camels along for them by singing when they rode. Praise is to Allah Who has caused His religion to prevail and has made Abu Hurairah an Imam” (Sahih) Sunan Ibn Majah 2445, Darussalam Publications.
SAHABA ALSO MUST FOLLOW IMAMS:
Sahih Bukhari: Narrated Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman: The people used to ask Allah’s Apostle about the good but I used to ask him about the evil lest I should be overtaken by them. So I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We were living in ignorance and in an (extremely) worst atmosphere, then Allah brought to us this good (i.e., Islam); will there be any evil after this good?” He said, “Yes.” I said, ‘Will there be any good after that evil?” He replied, “Yes, but it will be tainted (not pure.)” I asked, “What will be its taint?” He replied, “(There will be) some people who will guide others not according to my tradition? You will approve of some of their deeds and disapprove of some others.” I asked, “Will there be any evil after that good?” He replied, “Yes, (there will be) some people calling at the gates of the (Hell) Fire, and whoever will respond to their call, will be thrown by them into the (Hell) Fire.” I said, “O Allah s Apostle! Will you describe them to us?” He said, “They will be from our own people and will speak our language.” I said, “What do you order me to do if such a state should take place in my life?” He said, “Stick to the group of Muslims and their Imam (ruler).” I said, “If there is neither a group of Muslims nor an Imam (ruler)?” He said, “Then turn away from all those sects even if you were to bite (eat) the roots of a tree till death overtakes you while you are in that state.” (Saheeh Bukhari,Book 88, Hadith 206)
Here in the above Hadith which is also narrated by Imam Muslim in his Sahih, states that Sahaba also obliged to follow Imams and Caliphs of the future. They cannot say, we are Sahaba and we follow only Quran and Hadith. As a matter of foolishness, some people claiming they are following Salaf and they detach from the creed of the Imams of the Main body.
The Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam warns :
Bukhari ,Book 88 Hadith 257 Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said, “If somebody sees his Muslim ruler doing something he disapproves of, he should be patient, for whoever becomes separate from the Muslim group even for a span and then dies, he will die as those who died in the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance (as rebellious sinners). (See Hadith No. 176 and 177)
It is rebellion (Kharijism) to follow (as they falsely claim) only Quran and Hadith or only Allah and Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam). The legitimate Muslim group who are “Al Jamah” (4:69) who are the only saved sect from among 73 sects, are upon following Quran, Hadith, Imams, Sahaba, Ahlul Bayth and Awliya Allah. Those are the succeeding chain of Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah.
Muslims are not allowed to follow any groups except those who follow the way of the main body and the way of the Imams, the last Ruler (Caliph) of Main body were Ottoman Sultans. They were followers of Ahlu Sunna WalJamah , traiditonal Hanafi-Sunni-Sufi and they were those who carried the flag of Islam for centuries.
Imams are chosen by Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala through the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam. It is not to make imams through voting or elections or a Diploma of Islam from Satan!. No Prophets gave diploma of Religion, nor established colleges to train Imams, Islamic leadership was always brought up through spiritual association with Prophets and Truthful Men of Allah (Siddiqin).
Those who claim they are upon the understanding of Salaf Salih (pious predecessors) and tread on a path of foolishness , arrogance and misguidance, let them wake up!.
Quran 17:81 And say, “Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart.”
Those who are confused about following Imams , Shaykhs and Ahlul Bayth, this information is sufficient for them. But those who deny arrogantly or by following some misguided people blindly, nothing can open their eye, except their fate in the hereafter, when it will be too late for such an opening!
