Syedna is the true messenger of Allah
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 40: Mohamed is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah, and the seal (or last) of the Prophets. And Allah has full knowledge of everything.
Allah declares that Mohamed ibn Abdulla (saws) is the seal and the last Messenger of Allah. If anyone claims that there is a Messenger of Allah after Mohamed (saws), he is an absolute liar! If anyone believes that there is a Messenger of Allah after Mohamed (saws), he leaves the fold of Islam, and is a disbeliever in the sight of Allah.
If you brothers who have written to us that the Syedna is the true messenger of Allah by mistake, you should immediately beg forgiveness from Allah, and seek to correct your aqeedah and imaan. We pray that Allah guide you and give you the wisdom to understand the Holy Quran, and save you from the punishment and wrath of Allah, that is in store for the people who believe that there is a messenger after Mohamed ibn Abdulla(saws), the Last Prophet of Allah.
The Holy Quran and all the true muslims bear witness that there is no Messenger after the Last Messenger, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws), and anybody who claims that there is another true messenger, is a confirmed liar. They Syedna is definitely not the messenger of Allah! We challenge you to bring some evidence or proof that Syedna is (Allah forbid) the True Messenger of Allah, if you are indeed truthful.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 27 Surah Al Naml verse 64: Bring forth your evidence, if indeed what you say is the Truth!
The Bohras indeed revere and give the same maqaam or position to their syedna, which is due only to Allahs Messenger. Allah states in the Holy Quran, that one cannot become a true believer until he loves the Messenger of Allah (saws) more than his own life, his family, and his wealth. Only the Messenger of Allah (saws) deserves this kind of reverence! But unfortunately, some people give his unconditional love to the syedna, and start believing that he is the messenger of Allah, although they never proclaim it in public.
Some Bohras, who have astrayed even further away from the truth, in their love and reverence, raise the maqaam of the syedna to that of Allah, and most of them do not even realize it! They invoke the syedna for everything, whereas none should be invoked except Allah Alone. Whatever the syedna says haraam is haraam, and whatever the syedna says is halaal, is halaal for them. This right belongs to Allah and His Messenger (saws) and no one else. They perfom the rites of tawaaf around the graves and shrines of some of the syednas ancestors, whereas this right belongs to Allahs House in Makkah Alone. They even bow down to the syedna in sajdah or prostration, and without a doubt, this right belongs to none but Our Lord and Creator, Allah Subhanah Alone! These people do not realize it, but they are guilty of the henious crime and sin of shirk, and they have gone far far astray in their deen. And the people do all these gross iniquities because they just do not understand the simple message, guidance and teachings of the Holy Quran. Only if they took the effort to read and understand the Holy Quran, they would never do these horrendous acts of shirk! But then the leadership have systematically taken out the clear guidance and noor of the Holy Quran from their lives, and have lead the poor souls to nothing but darkness and deviation! The leadership have been successful in subjugating and enslaving the Bohras, and made them Abde-Syedna (slaves of syedna), rather than guiding them towards becoming Abd-Allah (slaves of Allah)! They have indeed strayed far away from the Truth in their deviation!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verses 34-35: O you who believe! There are indeed many among the priests and the holy men who devour the wealth of others by evil means, and debar the people from the Way of Allah. Give them the good news of a painful torment, who hoard up gold and silver and do not expend these in the Way of Allah. The Day shall surely come when the same gold and silver shall be heated in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their bodies and their backs. (And it will be said): Here is that treasure you had hoarded up for yourselves! Taste now the evil of your hoarded treasure!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verses 69: You are behaving just like those who went before you. They had more power than you, and possessed greater riches and had more children than you. They had enjoyed their portion of the good things of the worldly life, and you too, have enjoyed your portion of the good things like them. You are also engaged in idle discussions like the discussions they held. Consequently, in the end everything they did, proved vain in this world, and shall be vain in the Next World. Surely they are the losers!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 8 Surah Anfaal verses 36-37: Those who have denied, spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the Way of Allah, and will go on spending still more of it. But in the end, these very efforts of theirs will become a cause of their regret; then they will be overcome, and the disbelievers shall be gathered and driven towards Hell; so that Allah may separate the filthy from the pure, and gather together every sort of filth, and then throw the whole heap into Hell. These are indeed the real losers!
Please take a good look and study the below aayahs, and you will realize how weak and helpless are these people whom you call
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse73: O mankind! A parable is related to you, so listen to it! Those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create a fly, even though they may all combine together for this purpose! Nay! If a fly snatches away anything from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly! How weak are the those who petition, and how weak are those to whom they supplicate!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 34 Surah Saba verses 22: (O Prophet) say, Call on those whom you invoke as deities besides Allah. They neither own an atoms weight of anything in the heavens, nor in the earth. Nor have they anything to share in either, nor is any of them a helper of Allah
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verses 13: Then, instead of Allah, he invokes those who can do him neither harm nor good. This is the last extremity of deviation. He invokes those who are more likely to do him harm, than good! What an evil maula he chooses, and what an evil companion.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 36 Surah Yaa Seen verses 74-75: Yet, they have set up others besides Allah, hoping that they would be helped! They (those invoked) do not have the power to help them, yet these people stand as an ever ready troop at their service!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verses160: If Allah helps you, none can overcome you! And if Allah forsakes you, who is there, then, after Allah that can help you? Therefore, the true believers should trust in Allah Alone.
May Allah guide you and us all to the Siraat al Mustaqeem. May Allah help us, have mercy on us, and forgive us our sins. May Allah guide you and us to read and understand the Message of the Holy Quran. May Allah open our hearts to the understanding of the Glorious Quran. Ameen.
May Allah guide you and us to read and understand the simple and plain words of the Glorious Quran. May Allah increase our knowledge from the Holy Quran. May Allah guide us to the Siraat al Mustaqeem.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
