One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

dear brother

 

every one accept that the last "haq" of a dead body is to bury it, the method is mentioned in islam, and last thing we can do for a dead body is to recite the "talqeen" on the grave,, after that it is all between this deadbody and allah,, then why these quls , dua, daswan , beseewan , chalisswan are celebrated, why these quran khawanis helf for this departed soul, who in fact according to nature and according our religion, which is said the religion of nature,, Deen-e-fitrat, that once a person died he/she has not connection this world, in any form,,, why is necessary to build the "pakki qabrain" people build, and why we see all the roza of prophet, his kaliphat, his "all-i-rasool, the mazar of darwaish,, is it necessary,, will islam not survive if people dont go for the ziarat and hazri of these rozas and mazars,, while it is said that the responsibility of protecting islam ,

quran and sunnah was taken by Allah himself,,,

 

if Allah have all powers and gives some power to his dear people , prophets, momeen etc. than is not it like the bhagwan who made devi and devatas and gave them different powers, made some god of war, some god of agriculture, some god of justice etc. is not it the same in islam, the rozas and mazars, same thing

 

is it neccessary, is it a source, that god needs, you see just like Allah created us but thru parents,, so some people say these are the sources,,,,,, but the confusion is that how people go for what is right and what is wrong, when there are so many mazars, rozas, shrines, peer aulias,, al-e-rasool,

sahaba-e-rasool,, all are different,,, who is right

 

totally confused,,,, hope you might remove this confusion

Answer:

 

Share in power shirk graves and dargah

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: ..then why these quls , dua, daswan , beseewan , chalisswan are celebrated, why these quran khawanis helf for this departed soul,

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 164:

Every soul draws the meed of its acts on none but itself: no bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another. Your goal in the end is toward Allah: He will tell you the Truth of the things wherein ye disputed.

 

Abu Hurairah reported that The Prophet (saws), said, 'When a person dies all his good deeds cease except for three:

1.      a continuous act of charity,

2.      beneficial knowledge, and

3.      a righteous offspring who prays for him'.''

Related by Muslim and Abu Dawood.

 

In light of the above guidance of the Quran it is absolutely clear that every soul will draw the meed or merit of its own deeds; and in light of the absolutely clear guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) all the deeds of a deceased are ceased except for three:

  1. continuous act of charity: ie. the charity done by the deceased like building a school, or a hospital, or a mosque, or a well, etc. which is still being utilized for the good of man even after his death.the deceased shall earn a reward for such continuous deeds of charity even after his death.
  2. beneficial knowledge: ie. if the deceased strove and exhorted someone to believe and obey their Lord Creator, or the deceased gave someone a copy of the Glorious Quran, or some good advice, etc.then he will continue to receive the rewards of every good that person did on his advice.
  3. righteous offspring: ie. the near and loved ones who constantly supplicate their Lord to forgive their deceased loved one.

 

Many amongst the Prophets (saws) own family and companions died in his own lifetime, but there is absolutely no evidence in the authentic and established Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) ever performed the rites or rituals of quls, daswan, beseewan, chalisswan, quran khawanis, etc. for the benefit of the deceased soul; nor did he (saws) ever endorse the performing of such acts!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzab verse 21:

There is indeed the best example for you to follow in the Messenger of Allah, for every such person looks forward to Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much.

 

If one follows or does any rite or ritual or act of worship in Islam which is not specifically endorsed by the Messenger of Allah (saws).then one should know with total and absolute conviction that such self-invented and innovated rites of supposed worship are a manifestation of bida and absolutely unacceptable to Allah Subhanah!

 

For an act, or deed, or rite or ritual of worship, celebration or commemoration of a day or night, etc. to be considered a part of worship in Islam, or for it to be considered acceptable and pleasing to the Lord Creator, it is absolutely imperative that this act, or deed, or rite or ritual of worship, or the celebration or commemoration be endorsed by Allah and His Messenger (saws). It that act or deed or celebration in Islam is not endorsed by Allah and His Messenger (saws), then it would not constitute an acceptable or meritorious deed in the Sight of the Lord.

 

Therefore if someone starts or follows the self-invented rites and rituals of quls, daswan, beseewan, chalisswan, quran khawanis, etc., assuming it to be an act of worship, or a rite which will bring about the Pleasure or Good Will of Allah Subhanah, or a ritual which will benefit the soul of the deceased in any way whatsoever, he will be inventing a thing in the deen of Islam which is not from the deen! And that is exactly what the Messenger of Allah (saws) termed as bidah or innovation; and every single innovation in the pure and perfect deen of Islam is an error, a sin, and absolutely detestable to the Lord Most Majestic.


 

Aisha narrated that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: If somebody innovates something which is not present in our religion, then that thing will be rejected.

Related by Bukhari.

 

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4515 Narrated by Ali ibn AbuTalib

That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said: If anyone introduces an innovation (in religion), he will be responsible for it. If anyone introduces an innovation or gives shelter to a man who introduces an innovation (in religion), he is cursed by Allah, by His Angels, and by all the people.

 

Sahih Muslim Hadith 1885 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah

That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said in a sermon: The best speech is that which is embodied in the Book of Allah, the Al Quran; and the best guidance is the guidance given by me, Mohamed (saws). The most evil affairs are the innovations, and every innovation is an error.

 

The act that the Messenger of Allah (saws) himself did and guided the believers to do for the benefit of their deceased loved ones who died in the state of belief was to make sincere supplications for them; beseech their Lord in all humility, and hope, and fear that the Lord Most Gracious shower them with His Mercy, bestow on them His Grace, forgive them their shortcomings and their sins, and grant them an honorable rank in the Hereafter.

 

Your Question: why is necessary to build the "pakki qabrain" people build, and why we see all the roza of prophet, his kaliphat, his "all-i-rasool, the mazar of darwaish,, is it necessary,,

Jabir reported: "The Prophet(saws) forbade the whitewashing of a grave, sitting on it, or erecting any structure on it."

(Related by Ahmad, Muslim, Nasa'i, Abu Daw'ud, and Tirmidhi.)

Abu Hurairah reported: "The Prophet (saws) said: 'May Allah destroy the Jews, because they used the graves of their prophets as shrines (places of worship).'' (Related by Bukhari and Muslim)

 

Aishah reported: "Umm Habibah and Umm Salamah mentioned to Allah's Messenger (saws) a church in which they saw drawings while in Abyssinia, whereupon he (saws) said: 'Those people used to build a shrine over the grave of a righteous man among them when he died, and make such drawings in it. These will be the worst of people in the sight of Allah on the Day of Resurrection.''

(Related by Bukhari and Muslim)

 

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: Before you there was a group who turned the graves of their prophets and their righteous ones into places of worship. Do not tum graves into places of worship. I forbid you to do that'.''

(Related by Muslim)

 

In light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws), it is absolutely prohibited for the believers, who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day, to build any sort of structure over the graves of their deceased..absolutely regardless of whether that grave happens to be that of a Prophet or one amongst the most pious amongst the believers!

 

Your Question: .will islam not survive if people dont go for the ziarat and hazri of these rozas and mazars,, while it is said that the responsibility of protecting islam ,

quran and sunnah was taken by Allah himself,,,

Although Shariah does not prohibit the believers from visiting the graveyards as that would remind them of the Hereafter.the Messenger of Allah (saws) strictly prohibited the believers from undertaking a special journey to visit any place of worship except for the three holy places.

 

Said bin Al-Musayyib reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (saws) said, "You should not undertake a special journey to visit any place of worship other than the three Mosques: the Sacred Mosque of Makkah, this mosque of mine (in Madinah), and Al-Aqsa Mosque (of Jerusalem)."

Related by Bukhari, Muslim, and Abu Dawud.

 

The believers who travel to the holy city of Madinah go there with the intention to offer prayers in the Prophets Mosque, and since it so happens that the Prophet (saws) died and was buried in the quarters of Hadrat Aisha (r.a.) which happened to be adjacent to the Masjid of the Prophet, the believers pay their respects by declaring their salutations to their beloved Prophet (saws).

 

Allah is our witness brother, had the Prophet of Allah (saws) not died and buried in Madinah, it would not have been permissible for a believer in Shariah to undertake a journey specially to visit the grave of even the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws)!!!

 

The ignorant who build structures or mazars and rozas over the graves of some pious slaves of Allah.and perform the self-invented rites and rituals of haazri, and urs, and milaad, etc. at these shrines are in manifest violation of the guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws)!

 

Your Statements: if Allah have all powers and gives some power to his dear people , prophets, momeen etc. than is not it like the bhagwan who made devi and devatas and gave them different powers, made some god of war, some god of agriculture,

some god of justice etc. is not it the same in islam, the rozas and mazars,

same thing

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Yunus verse 65:

65 .All Power and Honor belong to Allah Aone: it is He (Alone) Who Hears and Knows everything!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 39:

39 There is no Power (or Strength) but with Allah Alone!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 59:

59 With Him (Allah Subhanah Alone) are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none Knows but He Alone. He Knows whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a Record Clear (with Him).

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verse 189:

189 To Allah belongs the Dominion of the heavens and the earth; and Allah has Power over all things.

 

Without an iota of a doubt, all and absolute Power, and Strength, and Sovereignty, and Dominion belongs to none save the Lord Most Supreme, Allah Subhanah, the One Only Unique and Incomparable Lord, Creator, Master, Sustainer and Cherisher of the universe! There is absolutely no power and no strength except the Power of Allah Subhanah.

 

Your Statement: is not it the same in islam, the rozas and mazars, same thing

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 34 Surah Saba verse 22:

22 Say: "Call upon other (deities) whom ye fancy besides Allah: they have no power! Not (even) the weight of an atom in the heavens or on earth; no (sort of) share have they therein, nor is any of them a helper to Allah.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verses 13-14:

13 He (Allah Subhanah) merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night and He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law): each one runs its course for a term appointed. Such is Allah your Lord: to Him belongs all Dominion. And those whom ye invoke besides Him have no power in the least!

14 If ye invoke them they will not listen to your call, and if they were to listen they cannot answer your (invocations). On the Day of Judgement they will reject your "partnership." And none (O man!) can tell thee (the Truth) like the One Who is acquainted with all things!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 53:

53 Have they (the so-called deities) a share in the Dominion or Power (of Allah)? Behold they give not (or cannot give even) a farthing to their fellow-men!

 

If one were to believe that anyone or anything in creation has even an atoms weight of the share of the Power and Dominion of the Lord Most Majestic.or one were to invoke anyone or anything in the unseen except Allah Subhanah for their needs and desires..Allah is our witness brother, they would be guilty of the abomination of the most heinous and unforgivable crime of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verse 18:

These people invoke beside Allah those which can neither harm nor benefit them, and say, These are our shofaa (intercessors) with Allah! (O Mohammed (saws)), tell them, Do you wish to inform Allah of that thing which He knows not in the heavens, or in the earth? He is absolutely free from, and exalted above the shirk that they commit.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 102:

What? Do these people, who have disbelieved, presume that they would make My servants their auliyaas besides Me? We have prepared Hell for the hospitality of such people!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rum verse 40:

Allah it is Who created you; then provided for you; then He causes your death; then He will bring you back to life. Is there among the associates you have set up (with Allah) anyone, who can do any of these things? Glorified is He and Far Exalted above the shirk these people commit.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verses 40:

Say, Have you ever seen those associates of yours whom you invoke besides Allah? Tell me: What have they created in the earth, or what is their share in the heavens? Have We given them a Book, from which they derive a clear sanction (for their shirk). Nay! These wicked people are only beguiling one another with nothing, but delusion.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one 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), one 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 alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
