Mannat vow dargah shirk
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: Iam girl interested to know weather can person man or women can make maanat to get any wish.
The mannat or neeyah or promise that one makes that if so and so thing is done I will do so and so is what is known as a nadhar (vow) in Fiqh or Jurisprudence terminology. In principle, there is no harm if one makes a mannat or a nadhar to get from their Lord whatever their hearts desire.but it is absolutely imperative that one make this mannat or nadhar to none save Allah Subhanah Alone!
As much as it is lawful for one to make a mannat or nadhar unto their Lord, the Messenger of Allah (saws) discouraged the believers from making such nadhar or vows, for the truth is that the vow itself has absolutely no bearing on what has already been Decreed and Determined by Allah Subhanah!
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.685 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws) said, "Allah says, 'The nadhar (vow) does not bring about for the son of Adam anything I have not decreed for him, but his nadhar (vow) may coincide with what has been decided for him, and by this way I cause a miser to spend of his wealth. So he gives Me (spends in charity) for the fulfillment of what has been Decreed for him what he would not give Me before but for his vow!"
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.683 Narrated by Said bin Al Harith
that he heard Ibn 'Umar saying, "Weren't people forbidden to make nadhar (vows)?" The Prophet (saws) said, 'A nadhar (vow) neither hastens nor delays anything, but by the making of vows, some of the wealth of a miser is taken out."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.684 Narrated by Abdullah bin Umar
The Prophet discouraged the making of nadhar (vows) and said, "It (a vow) does not prevent anything (that has to take place), but (through the vow) the property of a miser is spent (taken out) with it."
Some people have a habit that they are reluctant to do a good deed or spend some of their wealth in the Cause of Allah, without putting a condition with their Lord that only if He gives him such and such, only then will he do such and such a good deed! The truth is that these conditions do not help in expediting or bringing about what their heart desires, for only that will happen what has been already Decreed and Determined by Allah Subhanah!
A better way than making a nadhar or vow, is to do whatever good deeds one wills and beg and implore their Lord in all humility and hope to bestow upon them whatever their hearts desires.
Having said that making a nadhar or a vow is discouraged in Islam and one should not make conditions with their Lord in their supplications, Allah Subhanah in His Glorious Quran has appreciated and praised those believers who fulfill their nadhars or vows that they have made with their Lord!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 76 Surah Dhahr verses 5-12:
5 As to the Righteous they shall drink of a Cup (of Wine) mixed with Kafur
6 A Fountain where the Devotees of Allah do drink, making it flow in unstinted abundance.
7 They perform (or fulfill their) nazar (vows) and they fear a Day whose evil flies far and wide.
8 And they feed for the love of Allah, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive
9 (saying): "We feed you for the sake of Allah alone: No reward do we desire from you nor thanks.
10 We only fear a Day of distressful Wrath from the side of our Lord."
11 But Allah will deliver them from the evil of that Day and will shed over them a light of Beauty and a (Blissful) Joy.
12 And because they were patient and constant, He will reward them with a Garden and (garments of) silk.
If one has already made a vow to fast, or spend in charity, or offer nawafil prayers, or go themselves or send someone for pilgrimage, or do a good deed, etc. unto their Lord when their hearts desire is fulfilled, then it would be best for the person to now fulfill their vow they made unto their Lord; it is expected that they will have their full reward with their Lord for keeping their promises made unto Him.
Your Question: ..like some people will say tht they will 16 sayed ka liya roza..(fasting).is it permitted in islam or going to any shire daraga to want a wise to get it form Allah through him.is it permitted to take such roza or fasting
There is allowance in Shariah if one wishes to make a mannat or a nadhar unto Allah Subhanah, the Lord and Creator of everything in existencebut Allah is our witness sister, if one makes a mannat or a nadhar for absolutely anyone else other than Allah Subhanah Alone, that would constitute the absolute unforgivable abomination and crime of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subahnah!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verse 2-3:
So worship Allah Alone, making your religion His exclusively. Beware! Religion is the exclusive Right of Allah. As for those who have taken other auliyas with Allah (and justify their this conduct by saying): We serve them only that they may bring us closer to Allah. Allah will surely judge between them concerning all that in which they differ. Allah does not show guidance to any liar and denier of the Truth.
Supplications, prayers, fasting, charity, pilgrimage, sacrifice, etc. are rites of worship, and worship is due to none save Allah Subahnah Alone! To make a mannat or a nadhar that one would fast for the supposed sayed, or to go to a dargah or a shrine of one of the pious slaves of Allah, etc. would be to fulfill the rites of worship which are due exclusively to Allah Subhanah to someone else in creation..and that, without an iota of a doubt, would constitute the absolute abomination and unforgivable crime and sin of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subahnah!!!
Regardless of how pious or righteous that sayed or the ones buried in their graves in the dargahs may have been.they are now dead and they simply do not have the power or the ability in the least to hear the supplications made unto them, nor can they respond to the invocations, nor do they have any influence whatsoever on the Decisions and the Decrees of The Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme!!! To invoke them in the unseen, or ask them to take their supplications to Allah, or ask them to get something from Allah, or even only to assume or believe that those buried in the graves can hear, leave alone respond to their supplications is to commit the absolute abomination of shirk or associate others with Allah Subhanah, the Majestic and Supreme Lord of the Worlds!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 46 Surah Ahqaf verses 4-6:
O Prophet (saws), say to them, "Have you ever seen them with open eyes those whom you invoke instead of Allah? Show me what they have created in the earth? Or have they any share in the creation and control of the heavens? Bring me a Book revealed before this, or produce some remnant of knowledge in support of your beliefs if you are truthful." And who could be further astray than the one who invokes, besides Allah, those who cannot answer him till the Day of Resurrection! Nay, they are even UNAWARE THAT THEY ARE BEING INVOKED. And when all mankind shall be gathered together (on the Day of Qiyamah), they (the so called intercessors) will become enemies of those who invoked them and they will DISOWN THEIR WORSHIP!!!
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 they 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 far exalted above the shirk that they commit!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verse 20-21:
All the other beings, whom the people invoke with Allah, create nothing! Nay, they are themselves created. They are DEAD, not living, and they do not at all know themselves when they shall again be raised to life!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verses 28-30:
On the Day when We will muster them together, We shall say to those who committed shirk, Stay where you are, you and those whom you set up as partners with Us. The We shall remove the state of strangeness from among them, and the partners they had set up will say, You did not worship us! Allah suffices as a witness between you and us, and (even if you worshipped us), we were utterly unaware of your worship! At that time everyone will taste of what he did. All shall be brought back to Allah, their real Lord, and all the lies they had invented will vanish from them!
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 35Surah Fatir verses 13-14:
He merges night into day, and day into night, and he has subjected the Sun and the Moon (to His Law); each one runs its course for an appointed term. Such is Allah, your Lord! To Him belongs all Dominion. Those whom you invoke besides Him, do not own even a blade of grass! If you call them, they cannot hear your prayers! And if they hear, they cannot answer you! And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your shirk. None can inform you of the Truth, like the One Who is acquainted with all things.
Respected sister in Islam, if anyone makes a mannat or nadhar, or fulfills any of the rites of worship like fasting, or prayers, or charity, or sacrifice or pilgrimage, etc. for anyone other than Allah Subahnah Alone.or anyone invokes or makes any supplication to anyone in the unseen except Allah Subahnah.or anyone visits the dargah of one of the pious slaves of Allah and assumes that those dead and buried in their graves can hear their supplications, or take their supplications to Allah, or intercede for them unto Allah, or get them something from their Lord Most Majestic, etc..without an iota of a doubt, that would constitute the abomination of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!!!
Allah is our witness sister, if these people do not turn back to their Lord Creator in taubah and seek forgiveness for their abomination of associating other deities with Allah Subhanahthe eternal and ever-lasting torment of the Hell Fire will be their guaranteed abode!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 72:
commits shirk (invoking anything with Allah),
Allah shall forbid for him
Allah says in the Quran: Chapter 4 Surah An-Nisa Verse 48
Shirk (associating other deities with Allah) is the only sin that Allah does not forgive, and He forgives, whomsoever He pleases, sins other than this. For whosoever associates any other partner with Allah, does indeed forge a big lie and commits the most heinous sin
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumar verse 65-66:
If you commit shirk all your works will be rendered vain and you will be among the losers. Therefore, you should worship Allah Alone, and be among His grateful servants.
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.
