When we go to majlis we often use this 3 NARA(Kalima) 1) Nara-E-Takbir "ALLAH-AKBAR" 2) Nara-E-Risalat "YAA RASULALLAH" 3) Nara-E-Haydari "YAA ALI" Now my question is 1)Is it correct to use this 3 NARA. 2)Is it correct to say YAA to Mohammed and YAA to Ali.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
When we go to majlis we often use this 3
Now my question is
1)Is it correct to use
2)Is it correct to say YAA to Mohammed and YAA to Ali.
when i ask over scholar friend he said that Hazrat Ali(a.s) was SAHID so we cannot say that he is dead.
so the person who is not DEAD we can say YAA to him.
Same way RASULALLAH is also not dead so we can say YAA.
Now please clarify the above questions on only QURANIC VERSES, because my scholar friend do not believe on BUKHARI SHARIF or any other HADITH because he says that these books were modified several times.
waiting for your quick answer.

Prophet (saws) Alive slogans & Address Ya
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.
Question: When we go to majlis we often use this 3
1) Nara-E-Takbir: "ALLAH-AKBAR"
2) Nara-E-Risalat: "YAA RASULALLAH"
3) Nara-E-Haydari: "YAA ALI"
Now my question is
correct to use this 3
If one wishes to Glorify and Praise Allah Subhanah in congregation or in public, then all Glory and all Praise indeed belong to none except Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Worlds. His believing slaves may Praise and Glorify Him through any of His Noble and Exclusive Attributes, thus there is absolutely no harm in declaring Allah-o-Akbar (Allah is The Greatest) as a slogan in congregation. This term of declaring Allah-o-Akbar or Allah is The Greatest was regularly used by the Messenger of Allah (saws) and his companions as a slogan whenever they heard good news or when rallying the believing forces in the state of battle.
There is absolutely no evidence in the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) or even in the practice of his noble companions after his (saws) death, that they would declare slogans such as Yaa Rasul-Allah or Yaa Ali in private or in congregation!
If one wishes to remember or praise the Messenger of Allah (saws) in private or in public there is absolutely no harm; but it must be done in the way as commanded by Allah Subhanah Himself in His Quran and taught by the Prophet (saws) to the believers; ie. to recite the durood on him (saws).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 56:
56 Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect.
Abu Mas'ud Al-Ansari reported the following account from Bashir ibn Sa'd: "I asked Prophet (saws), 'O Messenger of Allah, Allah has commanded us to salle (invoke blessings) upon you. How should we do it?' The Messenger of Allah (saws) remained silent until we wished we had not asked him. Then he (saws) told us to say: 'Allahumma salli 'ala muhammadin wa 'ala ali muhammadin kama sallayta 'ala ali ibrahima, wa barik 'ala muhammadin wa 'ala ali muhammadin kama barakta 'ala ibrahima wa 'ala ali ibrahima fil 'alamin, innaka hammidum majeed.
(O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You blessed the family of Ibrahim, and give baraka to Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You gave baraka to the family of Ibrahim. In all the worlds, You are worthy of Praise and Most Glorious)."
(Narrated by Muslim)
Your Question: Is it correct to say YAA to Mohammed and YAA to Ali.
Ya is the Arabic synonym of the term O. in English. When one addresses someone who is in front of him, or in direct correspondence with him, or when in ones audience or presence, he may call him/her or attract his/her attention by saying, Ya so and so in Arabic, just as at times people address O Alex, do this for me, or O my child, why did you do this?, etc. in the English language.
When the Prophet (saws) was alive, and if anyone wanted his attention or wanted to ask him something, they would address him, Ya Rasool Allah or Ya Nabi Allah. This term of Ya can only be used when the one who is addressed is considered alive, and/or is in conversation with the person, and/or to call his/her attention to you.
To call anyone who is dead by the term Ya.., is to believe that the person is able to hear our call! The Messenger of Allah (saws) is dead, and cannot hear us when we call upon him; thus it is incorrect to call him (saws) or anyone else who is dead by the term, Ya..so and so..
We may call upon anyone who is alive, or is in conversation with us, or when we need to get his/her attention by saying, Yaso and so.. To call upon someone who is dead and incapable of hearing our call, Yaso and so. is obviously incorrect!
To call upon someone who is dead, and to believe that he has the power to hear us or help us from his grave, is to share some of the Noble Attributes of Allah of being All Hearing and All Alive, with a human being. And that would be considered manifest shirk in the sight of Allah Subhanah. Allah Subhanah Alone is the One Who is All Hearing and Always Alive, and absolutely no one else can share His Noble and Absolutely Exclusive Attributes!
The Messenger of Allah (saws), Hadrat Ali (r.a.) and all those who have died, have no power to hear us or help us in the least! Allah Subhanah Alone is the All Hearing, and He Alone has all the Powers in the Universe. Thus the only being one may call upon in the unseen is the Supreme and Majestic Lord Alone, for He Alone is the All-Hearing, All-Knowing and Ever-Living Lord of the Worlds.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraf verses 197 :
Those whom you call besides Allah, cannot help you, nor can they help themselves.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 34 Surah Saba verses 22 :
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 10 Surah Yunus verses 106-107:
And do not call besides Allah, any being that can neither do you any good nor any harm. For if you will do so you shall be one of the doers of wrong. If Allah afflicts you with a calamity, there is none to remove it, but He Himself. Likewise, if Allah wills to bestow a favor on you, there is none to withhold Allahs Bounty. He bestows His Bounty on anyone of His servants He wills. And He is The Forgiving, The Merciful.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Isra (Bani Israel) verses 56-57:
Say, You may call for help those, besides Allah, whom you fancy! They have neither the power to remove your troubles from you, nor change them! In fact, those beings whom these people call for help themselves seek the means of approach to Allah, and vie with one another to be nearer to Him, and hope for His Mercy and fear His Wrath. The fact is that the Wrath of your Lord is a thing to be dreaded!
There is absolutely no evidence in the practice of the noble companions of the Messenger of Allah (saws) whereby they ever invoked the Messenger of Allah (saws) after his death with the term Yaa Rasul-Allah..; nor is there any evidence that the family or companions of Hadrat Ali (r.a.) ever invoked him with the term Yaa Ali. after his martyrdom!
Your Statement: when i ask over scholar friend he said that Hazrat Ali(a.s) was SAHID so we cannot say that he is dead.
so the person who is not DEAD we can say YAA to him.
Same way RASULALLAH is also not dead so we can say YAA.
It is an absolutely false and baseless belief to believe
that the Messenger of Allah (saws) and Hadrat Ali (r.a.) are not dead! Tens of thousands of his companions witnessed
the death of the Noble Messenger of Allah (saws), tens of thousands of his
noble companions themselves prayed burial prayers over his (saws) dead body and
buried him in his blessed resting place and grave in his city of
Similarly, tens of thousands of believers witnessed the
death of Hadrat Ali (r.a.), prayed burial prayers on their Ameer-ul-Mumineen,
and buried him in his blessed resting place and grave in the city of
Allah is Witness that the Messenger of Allah (saws) and his noble companion Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) are dead, and thousands of believers witnessed their death and their burials. Thus to believe that they are alive in any pretext is nothing but an absolute falsehood and a manifest lie.
The ignorant who propagate this falsehood that the martyrs are alive base their opinion from this verse of the Holy Quran, which they have conveniently taken completely out of context to propagate their false belief!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 154:
154 And say not of those who are slain in the way of Allah: "They are dead." Nay they are alive, though ye perceive (it) not.
The hypocrites would try to demoralize the believers and incite them not to fight and give their lives in the Cause of Allah; thus Allah Subhanah revealed this Aayah in the Glorious Quran to motivate the believers and throw dust on the opinion of the hypocrites by stating: Nay they are alive, though ye perceive (it) not.
Under no circumstances was this Aayah understood by the Messenger of Allah (saws) and the companions with him that the martyrs in the Cause of Allah were alive and they could hear or see or respond to their calls or invocations; nor did the Messenger of Allah (saws) ever invoke the martyrs amongst his noble companions who laid down their lives in the Cause of Allah in the Battles of Badr, or Uhud, etc!
Allah Subhanah also clearly declares in the same Aayah that we human beings cannot comprehend or perceive the reality of their being alive in the Presence of Allah! To believe that the martyrs are alive just as a human being is alive on this earth, and to believe that their sight and hearing function just as these faculties function in a normal human being who is alive, is to perceive the life of the martyrs in the Presence of their Lord; whereas Allah Subhanah has Himself clearly and openly declared that we human beings are unable to perceive their lives after their martyrdom in the Majestic Presence of the Lord of the Worlds!
Your Statement: Now please clarify the above questions on only QURANIC VERSES, because my scholar friend do not believe on BUKHARI SHARIF or any other HADITH because he says that these books were modified several times.
To believe in the documentation of Imam Bukhari is not amongst the obligatory elements of beliefs in Islam; thus the brother is well within his rights as a believer to refuse to believe in the collection of Imam Bukhari.
But it is absolutely obligatory for every person, who claims to believe in Allah and His Last and Final Messenger (saws), to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (saws)! Imam Bukhari is simply one amongst the many recorders of the authentic Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws), and if the brother does not wish to believe in the documentation and works of Imam Bukhari for any reason whatsoever, then he has the option to accept the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) from any other authentic source or sources.
But if one claims that he does not believe in all of the collectors of the authentic hadiths of the Messenger of Allah (saws), then it is evident that such people in reality do not wish to follow the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws), the following of which is indeed considered an absolutely obligatory element of faith in Islam!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisa verse 79-80:
We have sent you (O Mohamed) as a Messenger to mankind, and Allahs witness suffices for this. Whoever obeys the Messenger, in fact obeys Allah, and whoever turns away from him, he will be accountable for his deeds. Anyhow, we have not sent you (O Mohamed) to be a guardian over them.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 31-32:
O Prophet, tell the people, If you sincerely love Allah, follow me. Then Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, for He is All Forgiving, All Merciful. Also say to them, Obey Allah and His Messenger. And if, in spite of this, they do not accept your invitation, warn them that Allah does not love those, who refuse to obey Him and His Messenger.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he can be assured of being led astray.
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.
