I am putting some of these quotes here as I have seen on numerous threads that people who claim to be 'deobandi' in maslak mock the idea of the dead mumineen travelling beyond their graves and visiting the living. These are quotes from the respected and venerable ulama and akaabir of deoband, who are far from being kuffaar as was the unfortunate mistake of Shaikh Ahmad Ridha Khan, rahmatullah alaihim.
Dear Mufti Sahib, Ashlamualaiykum, I would like to know it is allow to ask our requirement to peer/wali/auliya who is in blessed grave, are they able to help us, if yes please dalil, if they are not able to help us why maulana qasim nanotvi saheb came two time from his grave and helped to deobandi people, one time maulana nanotvi saheb came to darul uloom deoband to help maulana rafiuddin saheb who has dispute with other ulemas of deoband and second time he was came in punjab (india) when deobandi alim was doing munazara (debating with barelvi alim) then maulana nanotiv saheb came with his body (not only rooh), kindly note that above two incidence is noted from Arwahe Salasha it is composed by well-known deobandi school, as barelvi accused on deobandi. Please clarify, this is not for insult of anyone, i am barelvi but I respect some of deobandi idea which is really good and according to sunnah and quran. Please sir don't take it otherwise. Thanks
It is not allowed to pray to the dead for help and assistance:
قال الشیخ عبد الحق الدھلوي: أما الإستمداد بأهل القبور في غير النبى والأنبياء فقد انكره كثير من الفقهاء
قال الإمام البغوي في المعالم: الاستعانة نوع تعبد والعبادة
وفی الحدیث عن ابن عباس قال كنت خلف رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يوما فقال: يا غلام احفظ الله يحفظك, احفظ الله تجده تجاهك و إذا استعنت فا ستعن بالله ?الخ
The story you have written from the book: Arwaah-e-Thalatha, it means that Allah Almighty is All-powerful, He can personify anyone for the help of others, and it is not in the power of a sheikh or debater, as Hadhrat Yaqoob (عليه السلام) was personified in front of Hadhrat Yusuf (عليه السلام).
" One day after Fajr Salah mawalana Rafeeuddeen saheb (rh) invited Mawalana Mahmoodul Hasan saheb in his room( Inside darul uloom deoband). Mawlana (Mahmoodul Hasan) arrived and opened the door and entered inside . It was severe winter at that time.
Mawalana Rafeeudeen saheb told him to first examine his overcoat. When Mawalana (Mahmoodul Hasan) saw this over coat it was wet. Mawlana Rafeeudeen told him that just now Mawalana Nanatwee visited with his physical body ( JASADE UNSAREE) and I was frightened so my overcoat became wet (due to sweating). Mawalana Nanatvee ordered that Mahmood Hasan should not indulge in this internal fight going on among the teachers of Deoband. Mawalana Mahmood Hasan said "Hazrat I repent ( do tawbah on your hands) and I will not speak anything after this, in this on going internal fight"
A small incidence from Arwahe Salasa , page 242.( A book deaing with the life of Deobandi scholars).
Here Mawalana Qasim Nanatvee can come after his death and that too in physical form, just to resolve the fight in Deoband.
“The great grand father of Mawlana Asharf Ali thanvee (Mohammed Farid) participated in a marriage procession and this party was passing through a remote area. The Dacoits attacked this party with bows and arrows. The grand father (of Mawlana Thanvee) got martyred in this attack.”
“After his martyrdom he came to meet his wife (jinda tashrif laye) and gave sweet to his wife and said ‘ if you will not reveal this secret to any one then I will come daily. The wife thought, what will other house member think when they will see her and kids eating sweets? So she told the secret to other family members. Because of this he (grand father) stopped visiting. This incidence is very famous in family. (Khandaan).”
( Asharafus Sawaneh ( Biography of Mawlana Thanvee) , by Khawja Ajeezul Hasan , vol 1 , page 12 , published by Khankah Imdadiyah , Thana Bhavan)
Question :Salafi are using this waqiah to confuse people. Please shed some light on this incident and other stories of Awlya Allah?
Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi’s Grandfather comes back after Death!
A strange incident is mentioned in Ashraf-us-Sawaneh (biography of Ashraf Ali Thanvi) about the great-grandfather of Ashraf Ali Thanvi, Muhammad Fareed. He was accompanying a marriage procession when it was attacked by a band of thieves. Muhammad Fareed died defending the procession and was buried near the tomb of Pir Samauddin. An urs (festival) was held at his grave for many years. The biographer writes, “After his martyrdom a strange incident occurred. At night, he returned to his home as if he was alive and gave some sweets to his family members saying, ‘If you do not tell (about my visit) to anyone, I shall keep coming this way.’ But the family members feared that the people may suspect something wrong when they see the children eating sweets, so they disclosed the incident and after this he did not return.” Ashraf-us-Sawaneh, vol.1, p.12.
Souls of Momin coming back to the world is possible and there is nothing against shariah in it.. Souls of the Kuffar are restricted after their death. Such type of incidents are called Karamat and are proven for souls of Momin. Karamat are Haq and there is nothing against Shariah in it. Ashraf us Sawaneh is a reliable book.
Mufti Abdur Rahim Lajpuri, a prominent Deobandi scholar, says in Fatawa Rahimiyyah, “The soul can and does come. Events and observations bear witness to this fact.” Fatawa Rahimiyyah (Eng. Trans.) vol. 2, p.252, Question no. 355
From Kitabul Janaiz, “The belief that the Ruh (soul) of the mayyit (dead) remains in the house or visits the house for forty days is baseless. While it is possible for the Ruh to visit any place with the permission of Allah, the belief that it does in fact visit the home on specific days is not correct.” Kitabul Janaiz (Hanafee), p.36 by Majlis-Ulema, the pro-Deobandi lobby of South Africa
