(d.1307 AH/1890 CE)

Father of the

Indian subcontinent

Kitab al Tawizaat

Siddiq Hasan Khan al Qinnawji founding Father of the Wahhabi/Salafi - Ahlul Hadith Sect in the Indian subcontinent writes:

All my forefathers and teachers belonged to Naqshbandi Tariqa, although they had ijaza (permission) in the other [sufi] salasil as well.
Here I have mentioned the special Khtam of Tariqa Mujaddidiya .
My deceased father belonged to the Naqshbandi Tariqa and Qadi Shawkani was also a Naqshbandi.
And the family members of Shah Waliullah muhaddith and Mirza Mazhar Jan e Jana also belonged to this [Naqshbandi] tariqa. 
Shah Abdul Aziz Muhaddith has narrated that one of the most effective and tested method of removing all difficulty reported from the mashaykh of this [Naqshbandi] silsila is the recitation of Khatm e Khawjgan. ….. This has to be recited on some sweet [sheerni] and its reward should be donated to the mashaykh of naqshbandi tariqa and then this sweet should be distributed [among the people].”

Siddiq Hasan Khan writes further:

The khatm of Hazrat Mujaddid Shaykh Ahmed Sirhindi [Rh]”
This Khatm is tested and tried method for fulfilling all needs and removing all difficulties….. Mirza [mazhar e Jan e Jana] sahab wrote it to Qadi Thanaulla that [recitation of] Khatm e Khawjgan and Khatm e Mujaddidiya should be made compulsory after the daily gathering in the morning..”
[Kitab al Tawizaat, by Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan, p.153, published by Nomani Kutub Khana, Lahore]

Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan has also mentioned khatm e Qadriya and special amulets (Taweez) in the same book.

Since donating reward to the deceased, reciting Qur’an on sweet and distributing, conducting special dhikr gathering, calling these recitations with names like:

 Khatm e Khawjgan, Khatm e Mujaddidiya, Khatm e Qadriya ... etc

All these acts are shirk and bid’a in the Ahlehadith Wahabbi/Salafi religion!

AhleHadith Wahhabi/Salafi should issue  Fatwa (verdict) of Bidati (innovator) and Mushrik upon their own leader Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan.

And then  get all the wahhabi/salafis to start a campaign to demolish the solid grave of Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan:

“Khtam e Kinnawji”



The Indian Wahhabi Sufi of Bhopal, he was greatly influenced by Ibn Taymiyya, Ibn al-Qayyim, and al-Shawkani. He advocated the doffing of imitation (taqlid) and began his career with "solid aversion toward the Imams of Fiqh and Tasawwuf" but repented in the latter part of his life according to his biographical notice in Nuzhat al-Khawatir (8:187-195) to the point that when he desired to take bay`a from Shaykh Fadl al-Rahman al-Muradabadi the latter sent him his turban and recommended asking forgiveness as his permanent devotion, after which al-Qinnawji was never seen without a sibha (dhikr-beads) in his hand making istighfar.

He fell ill with dropsy and went into a coma from which he came out only to ask:
 "Has my Maqaalaat al-Ihsan come out of the press yet?"

He meant the last of his 200+ books, a translation of Shaykh `Abd al-Qadir al-Gilani's Futuh al- Ghayb. His last words were, "I long to see my Lord."
Also among his works in Tasawwuf is al-Ghunna bi-Bisharati Ahl al-Janna (Bulaq 1302/1885).
In his 200-page book Takhrij al-Wasaya min Khabaya al- Zawaya (Beirut: al-Maktaba al-Thaqafiyya, 1986) on the "Counsels of Allah and His Prophet and the Righteous of His Umma" he abridged the book of Wasaya of Shaykh Muhyi al-Din Ibn `Arabi from the end of his Futuhat al- Makkiya.
Al-Qinnawji prefaces that part of his book with the words, "The most majestic Shaykh, the Knower of Allah Most High said in al-Futuhat al-Makkiyya..."


AL-SHAWKANI- A Naqshbandi Sufi:

 In his biographical compendium al-Badr al-Tali` bi-Mahasin man Ba`d al-Qarn al-Sabi` (1998 Fikr ed. p. 412) in the entry devoted to al-Sayyid `Abd al-Wahhab ibn Muhammad Shakir ibn `Abd al-Wahhab al-Mawsili,

al-Shawkani mentions that the aforementioned Shaykh
 "came to us in San`a in the year 1234 (1819CE) and I frequented him heavily... and I took from him the Dhikr according to the Naqshbandi Tariqa."


Was Imam Al Shawkani A Sufi?

I wish to see how his "Ahl-e-Hadith" contemporaries deal with these quotes in the scan below, and if these Ulama that they regard as their own committed Shirk or not?

Or will they say they are forged quotes?

The quote from al-Shawkani mentions Ijma al-Sahaba on Tawassul - even if done after the passing away of al-Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa salllam). The following fatwa has also been posted here previously:
Imam Shawkani said in his treatise entitled al-Durr al-nadid fi ikhlas kalimat al-tawhid:

There is no harm in tawassul through any one of the Prophets or Friends of Allah or scholars of knowledge... One who comes to the grave as a visitor (za'iran) and invokes Allah alone, using as his means the dead person in the grave, is as one who says: "O Allah, I am asking that you cure me from such-and-such, and I use as a means to You whatever this righteous servant of Yours possesses for worshipping You and striving for Your sake and learning and teaching purely and sincerely for You." Such as this, there is no hesitation in declaring that it is permitted...
More quotes from the pens of Indian "Salafiyya" of the past in affirmation of the validity of Tawassul, as well as al-Shawkani's view

Quotes are from major "Ahl-e-hadith" like:

Wahiduz Zaman
Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan of Bhopal
Abul Makarim Muhammad Ali (student of Nadhir Hussain al-Dehlawi)
Bashir al-Sahsawani

and others in the quotes
