Wahhabism & Deobandism "Hand and Glove"

 Wahhabism & Deobandism
"Hand and Glove"

Quote :
 “The 'Ulama of Deoband are definitely not 
Wahhabis or even Wahhabi-influenced

The Mutazilites  followed Hanafi school of Fiqh and merely following one of the 4 schools of fiqh, does not make a person part of the Ahlus Sunnah.
Also, if a person accepts  just one or two views of a sect and rejects the other views, that person  is not said to belong to that sect.

But what if we find  a "sect" which claims to be from Ahlus sunnah  but their "akabir" followed, accepted and propagated the ideas of  Wahabis?



Islamic Affairs Minister Saleh Al-Asheikh has pledged to work closely with Darul Uloom Deoband, India’s oldest and most prestigious Islamic university. The minister is currently on a visit to India.

The pledge to extend support to Deoband was given by Al-Asheikh during a ceremony organized in the minister’s honor on Sunday by Deoband students and faculty members.

After landing in a special helicopter at a helipad in Deoband, Al-Asheikh went around the campus, where he was briefed about the achievements of the 159-year-old Islamic seminary.

The minister visited the King Khaled building on the campus. The minister was accompanied by a 12-member delegation, including Saudi Ambassador to India Saud Al-Saati.

“My visit underlines the keenness of Riyadh to communicate with Muslims in various parts of the world, as well as to boost interaction between Muslims in the Kingdom, represented by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, and India
,” said Al-Asheikh.

He describing Darul Uloom as a “citadel” of Islam.
Ambassador Al-Saati said Darul Uloom made significant contribution in every sphere of life and its impact was visible in many parts of the world.

Speaking to Arab News from Deoband, Mufti Abul Qasim Nomani, the rector, said:
“The visit has helped strengthen ties between the Kingdom and Deoband and between Saudi Arabia and India.”

Darul Uloom Deoband,
which has over 4,000 students on its rolls, has always distanced itself from religious extremism, he said. “Al-Asheikh’s visit has also helped remove many misconceptions about the Darul Uloom,” he added.

There are around 200 million Muslims in India, and they are the largest minority in a country with a population of 1.2 billion.

Deoband is a major Islamic institution, which has its affiliated schools in different parts of the world. It has produced a large number of renowned Islamic scholars.” Here 

Sheikh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Qasim Imam and Khateeb of Masjid An-Nabawi, Medina Munawwarah will also be in India to be a part of Azmat-e-Sahaba conference being organized by Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind in Assam on 28 February 2014. Urdu/pic's  Here

To begin this let's see what are the characteristics of
Wahhabis as per Deobandis

Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi, says,"the followers of Muhammad Ibne Wahaab Najdi are called Wahaabi. He held excellent beliefs and his creed was Hanbali. Although he was rather of harsh temperament but he and his followers are good people." (Fataawa Rasheediyah, Page 111, Vol. 1).


 ...too late!

Husain Ahmad Madani (1879-1957CE)
 al-Shahab al-Shaqab:
Where he claimed that Mu-hammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab Najdi preached ‘patent falsehood’ (‘aqa‘id-i batila), killed numerous Sunni Muslims and forced many others to accept his ‘false’ creed (‘aqa‘id-i fasida). He referred to him as a ‘tyrant’ (zalim), ‘traitor’(baghi), and ‘despicable’ (khabis), and labelled him and his followers as the ‘despicable Wahhabis’ (wahhabiya khabisia).
[ Cited in Mahfuz ur-Rahman Faizi, Shaikh Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab Ke Bare Mai Do Mutazid Nazren, Varanasi: Jami‘a Salafiya, 1986, p.i.]
He wrote that:
Mu-hammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab Najdi had declared the wealth of all Muslims, including Sunnis, who did not follow him as property that could be rightfully looted (mal-i ghanimat), and their slaughter as a cause of merit (sawab), considering all but his own followers as apostates.
This is why, he claimed, the Arabs ‘detested’ Mu-hammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab Najdi and his followers, their hatred for them ‘exceeding their hatred for Jews, Christians, Magians and Hindus’.
‘Undoubtedly’, Madani asserted, 
Mu-hammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab Najdi had committed such heinous crimes that ‘such hatred for him is a must’. [Cited in Qadri, op.cit., p.136.]

Anwar Shah Kashmiri :
Insisted that Mu-hammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab Najdi was ‘stupid’ (bewaquf) and had ‘little knowledge’ (kam ‘ilm), because of which he was ‘quick to declare other Muslims as kafirs’.

Khalil Ahmad Saharanpuri :
the ‘Wahhabis’ as deviant, and claimed, referring to Mu-hammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab Najdi, that ‘neither he nor any of his followers and clan are among our teachers in any of our chains of transmission in Islamic knowledge, whether in jurisprudence, Hadith, Qur’anic commentary or Sufism’. [‘Gangohi Fatwas on Wahhabism’]

I have already said before that if any one needs proof that deobandi scholars have called themselves as 'wahabi" (see below)
I can provide scan from Deobandi books. This is another trick by the Deobandis. Before Al Muhannad was written , the deobandis had good view of ibn abdul wahab najdi al tamimi and his movement. But when Mawlana Khaleel Ambethvee wanted to please the scholars of Alus sunnah , he said" we deobandis, are against Ibn abdul wahab najdi and his movement.

Mawlana Khaleel went ahead and pin pointed the wrong belief held by Wahbabis. One of the wrong belief he pointed was " wahabis ascribe Allah to a direction and a location".

Strange enough , the same belief of Allah having a direction and a location was also held by Mawlana Ismaeel Dehalvee ( reference given in earlier post). Other beleif which Mawlana Khaleel , thought to be " wahabi belief" was held by Ismaeel Dehalvee and quotes supporting Mawlana Ismaeel Dehalvee can be seen in Fatwa Rashidiya. read more Here

 Manzoor Numani

has in his book

Mawlāna Manzūr Nu‘mānī said: that Muhammad b. Abdul Wahhāb Najdi (RA) and his adherents were upon the truth and the allegations leveled against them were baseless.

He writes, “After studying his life, I have realized that Muhammad b. Abdul Wahhāb Najdi (RA) encountered the same challenges that Shaykh Ismaīl Shahīd faced i.e. false accusations…His call to the oneness of Allah and efforts of reformation comprised of Jihād with the sword…”

 دعايات مكثفة ضد الشيخ محمد بن عبد الوهاب ص 25 “أكدت لي دراستي هذه أن الشيخ محمد بن عبد الوهاب النجدي رحمه الله قد واجه نفس الموقفمن الافتراء واختلاق أنواع الأكاذيب والأراجيف – الذي واجه الشيخ إسماعيل الشهيد من المبتدعين والخرافيين والقبوريين ومقدسي الأضرحة (التي يتخذونها من القصب ومن الأوراق في ذكرى سيدنا الحسين بن علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنهما) 

وبما أن دعوته إلى التوحيد وجهوده الإصلاحية كانت تشتمل على الجهاد بالسيف وكان أنصاره وحماته يلقون النجاح تلو النجاح ويفتحون المناطق إثر المناطق – حتى تغلبوا على الحجاز المقدس والحرمين الشريفين بالإضافة إلى جميع مناطق نجد – فجعل رجال الحكم والسلطان وأصحاب الدول والحكومات المجاورة يستشعرون منهم الخطر، ويخافون على أنفسهم الدائرة، مما دفعهم إلى أن يشاركوا الذين يختلفون مع الشيخ عقيدة وتفكيراً من المبتدعين والخرافيين والساجدين للقبور، في دعايتهم الكاذبة، وفيما يثيرون حول شخصيته ودعوته من غبار كثيف من المكر والدهاء، ومن أنه يستهين بشخص الرسول (وينتقصه، ويحم الضغينة والحقد والعداء ضد الصالحين والأولياء، ويستحل دماء جميع أفراد الأمة الإسلامية ممن سواه.


Fatwa: 994/834=B-1429


"Sheikh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahaab and the right-guided ulama of India", published 10 years ago and endorsed by:
Sheikh Muhammad Zakariya Kandhalvi and 

^Qaari Muhammad Tayyab, sought to prove that there was no ideological difference between Sheikh Abdul Wahaab Najdi and the ulama of Deoband and the Najdi Wahaabi and Deobandis were really one and the same.


Darul Ifta, Darul Uloom Deoband
Answer: 5177  Jul 19,2008 (Fatwa: 994/834=B-1429)
Najdi is called one who is attributed to a great reformer and scholar Hadhrat Shiakh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab Najdi (رحمۃ اللہ علیہ). This great reformist was accused of many things; therefore the opponents attribute us to him for irritating us.
 It is useful to study the book ?
Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab ke khilaf propaganda aur Hindustan ke Ulam-e- Haq per uske asaraat? written by Hadhrat Maulana Manzoor Nomani.
(2) If you study the ?Dastoorat? of Jamat Islami Hind, then you will come to know that many of their thoughts are deviated from the right path. Also, if you study the book: ?Khilafat w Mulukia? you will know how misleading thoughts they have about the companions of the Prophet (صلي الله عليه وسلم).

Q: Who are the Wahabis? How are their beliefs different from the mainstream Muslims? When was this sect started?

Wahhaabis are followers of Shaykh Abdul-Wahhaab of Najd.

Asked Country:South Africa
Question: Your fatwa no. 5848 – a glorifying eulogy to Muhammad ibn Abdal Wahab
mentions the views as held by the said individual.
Answer: Here


Make your bloody mind up! either you love him or hate him!

What do ulemas of deoband consider about Molana Abdul Wahhab? Do you agree that the present form of wahhbism has nothing to do with teachings of Maulana Abdul Wahhab?

Your observation is correct. Sheikh Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhaab [ra] was a reputable and God-fearing Aalim of the eighteenth century aligned to the Hanbali Madhab. Sheikh enjoyed unique acceptance and love across the spectrum of social class. Sheikh, in conjunction with the royal family of the time, was responsible for rekindling the love for the Qur’aan and Sunnah in the populace of the Arabian peninsula. Unfortunately, subsequent to the death of the Sheikh, his opponents embarked on a vehement campaign of concocting erroneous beliefs and views and attributed them to the Sheikh. This, in an attempt to discredit the Sheikh and to bring about discord between his followers.

When these attempts failed miserably, these opponents rescinded and capitalized on the influence that Sheikh’s name enjoyed and the love of the masses. By hijacking his movement and using it as a vehicle to spread their incorrect views and beliefs. For more information, refer to ‘The Life of Shaykh Abdul Wahhaab’ by Sheykh Muhammad Abu Bakr Ghazipuri.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
see here no point in removing it just be Honest with Muslims for a change!


 The Wahhabi
"Muhammad Ibne Abdul Wahaab believed that people all over the world and all Muslims were polytheists and infidels. [Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 44]

The well known Deobandi scholar ( Mawlana Manzoor Nomani) who used to participate in many debates against Sunni Muslims

Maulana Muhammad Manzoor Numani (1905-1997)

Manzoor Nomani said:
We should see these “so called muslims” who are grave worshippers and Tazia worshippers. Shaitan has put these “Mushrikana” acts in their hearts that they are not willing to listen to the teachings of Quran and Hadith”. 
“ When I look at these people ( so called muslims) then only I understand shirk of the previous ummah. If these people ( so called muslims) were not there among the muslim population, then it would have been very difficult for me to understand the shirk of the previous ummah’
[Al Furqan ( A monthly Deobandi Magazine ) , Editorial , For the month of Jamadi ulaa, 1372 AH , page 30 , published from Lucknow].

The Wahhabi
“The Najdis believed, and his followers still believe, that the lives of Prophets (Alihumus Salaam) were limited to the times during which they lived upon this earth. Thereafter, in death, they and other faithfuls are equal. [Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 45]

Ismail Dehalvi says "prophet is dead and his body has mixed  with soil. He also says prophets should be treated like an elder brother or a land lord. To make his belief clear about prophets he says “the creation big (like prophets) or small, they are all like cobbler in front of Allah. (Tafwiyatul Iman)

 The “imam e rabbani” of Deobandis , Rashid Ahmed Gangohi says:
  “The aqida of Shaykh Ismail dehalvi was sahih (correct/ sound)”
 Also said,
   “To keep and read this book Tafwiyatul Iman is the core of islam”  
[Fatwa Rashidiya]

But The Wahhabi
 “This group holds that having a vision of the blessed Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) and visits to his blessed tomb are bad innovations and unlawful.”
 [Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 45]

Ismail Dehalvi said,  to travel  to any other place except Kabah is shirk! [Tafwiyatul Iman]

The Wahhabi
“The Wahaabis use most insolent language in respect of Prophethood and the person of the holy Prophet himself (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam)
[Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 47]

On this issue deobandis have surpassed Wahhabis!

Read the proof:

(a)   “Shahid” of the deobandis , Ismail Dehalvi wrote “ to get the thought of prophet during salah( prayer) is worse than getting the thought of bull and horse. [ Sirate Mustaqeem]

(b)  “ Imam e rabbani” of the deobandis , Rashid Ahmed Gangohi and Khalil Ambethvi  wrote: “the knowledge of angel of death is  more than the knowledge of prophet and if the prophet has  higher status in illieen  that does not mean he is more knowledgeable than angel of death” [Baraheen Qatiya]

 (c)Hakim al Ummah” of the deobandis , Ashraf ali thanvi wrote:
“ The knowledge of the unseen which prophet has , that type ( aysa) of knowledge is also possessed by every insane , lunatics, every child , any tom and harry and all four legged animals. [Hifzul Iman]

 (d)Shamshul  Islam” of the Deobandis, Qasim Nanotvi said:
“ the followers ( ummati) can not only equate prophets in good deeds but they also surpass them “
[ Tahdir al Nas]

The Wahhabi
“The Wahabis claim to be the equals of the personality of the holy Prophet(Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) [Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 47]

Ismail Dehalvi wrote “ prophet should be treated like an elder brother”[Tafwiyatul iman ]

Please note: To keep and read this book ( tafwiyatul iman)  is the real Islam of deobadins!

 The Wahhabi
The  elders  of Wahabis also said that praying for Allah's forgiveness through his intercession was unlawful.  [Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 47]

Ismail Dehalvi wrote “ what is the difference between Abu Jahal and those who use intercession of   prophet”  [Tafwiyatul Iman]

The Wahhabi
“The Wahaabis are against performing mystic rites and sophistic practices-meditating, engaging in the remembrance of Allah and thinking about Him, owing allegiance to spiritual guides and the whole system of spiritual guides .[Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 59]

 Ismail Dehalvi wrote: “All these sufi chain like Chisti, qadri ,Suharwarid and Naqshbandi are biddah and has nothing to   do with teachings of Islam’ [Tafwiyatul Iman]

The Wahhabi
“Through verses Ar-Rahmaanu 'Alal 'Arshis Tawa etc, the Wahaabis try to prove that Allah physically occupies a throne and also make out His dimensions and, therefore, His bodily presence.” [Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 24]

Ismail Dehalvi also said that to make interpretation ( tawil ) of allerogical verses ( ayat e muyashbbihat) and to believe that Allah is free from time , space , location and direction is biddah! He also said to have this belief that Allah will be seen without modality on the day of judgment ; is biddah.
[ Iza ul haq]

The Wahhabi
The Wahaabis of Arabia have often been heard to harshly denounce the expression, "As Salaatu was Salaamu Alaika ya Rasoolal Laah" (Peace and salutation to you, O Allah's Messenger)", and most scathingly condemn and ridicule its use [Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 65]

 Rashid Gangohi said:  it is impressible to say Ya Rasul Allah [Fatwa Rashidiya]

The Wahhabi
The wicked Wahaabis harshly denounce sending repeatedly peace and salutation on the mercy to the worlds, and consider reciting Dalaa'ilul Khairuat, Qaseedah Burdah and Qassedah Hamziyah and such like as most detestable and unwarranted. They also consider some couplets of Qaseedah Burdah to be downright blasphemous [Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib,Page 66]

The deobandis also consider reciting of Darud Taj as shirk .

Ismail Dehalvi said to repeat names of Prophet in wazifa is shirk.

The Wahhabi
 Except for the knowledge by him of Allah's commands, the Wahaabis think the personality of the Last of the Prophets (Alaihis Salaatu Was Salaam) to be devoid of all hidden and true knowledge.[Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib Page 62]

It is a part of deobandi belief that prophet was not given any knowledge of the unseen and  the prophet did not have any knowledge of the unseen.
As per deobandis any person who has this belief regarding prophet  then he  is a mushrik and deobandis should not perform prayer behind him [ Fatwa Rashidiya]

The Wahhabi
The Wahaabis consider the narration of the birth of the king of the universe (Alaihis-Salaatu-Was-Salaam) itself to be a most reprehensible act and a very bad innovation".
[Shaykh Hussein  Tandvi al Deobandi , Shihabus Thaqib Page 67]

The deobandis are totally against Mawlid .

Rashid Gangohi said that deobandis should not participate even in those Mawlid gathering in which authentic narrations are discussed and no non shariah activity takes place!

 The Deobandi scholar Shaykh Hussein Tandve gave characteristics of the Wahabis and we have seen that deobandiakabir” are found to have those characteristics.

Who's Wahhabi?

Rashid Ahmad Gangohi states: "The followers of Mohammad Ibne Abdul Wahab are called “Wahabis”, their beliefs were excellent."(FATAWA-E-RASHIDJA - Vol. 1- Page 111)

Ashraf Ali Thanvi said: “If I had Rs 10000 I would have distributed it and people would have automatically become WAHABI”  (Al Ifadatul Yaumiya)

Ashraf Ali Thanvi said: "Brother, here Wahhabis reside, do not bring anything for 'Fathea, Niaz', etc. here." (Ashrafus Sawaneh Book 1 - Page 45)

Moulana Ilyas said, “Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi has done a great service (to the religion). It is my heart’s desire that the teachings should be his and the Manhaj (methodology) of Dawah (propagation) be mine, so that this way his teachings become well-known.”
[Malfoozat Moulana Ilyaas, p.50 ]

Yosuf Kandhalvi, stated that: ‘We are staunch Wahaabis." [Page 192 of the biography of Janab Yosuf Kandhalvi]

Maulvi Manzoor Nomani, states: "And we also state here clearly that we are extreme “Wahabis" (SA WANEH MAULANA MOHAMMAD YUSUF KANDHALVJ - Page 192)

Maulvi Mohammad Zakaria Khandhalvi said: "Maulvi Sahib, I myself am a greater Wahabi than you."(SA WANEH MAULANA MOHAMMAD YUSUF - Page 192)

and lets not forget:

“Spiritual Guide”

 “...In the days when Mirza Gulaam Ahmad Qadiani was writing his book, ‘Baraheen’, the newspapers highly publicized his excellence. In those days, Gulaam Ahmad had a great liking for Hazrat (Rasheed Ahmad Gungohi) and used to ask the people who returned after visiting him “Is Moulana alright?” and he used to inquire, “How far is Delhi from Gungoha? How is the way?” So, it seemed that he also wished to visit Hazrat. In those days, Imam Rabbani (Rasheed Ahmad Gungohi) said, the work that this person (Mirza Gulaam Ahmad) is doing is good, but he needs a Pir (spiritual guide) or it is feared that he goes astray.” 
[Tazkirat ar-Rasheed, vol.2,  p.228](Tazkirat ar-Rasheed a biography of Rasheed Ahmad Gungohi by his disciple Aashiq Ilaahi Merathi)


Let us see other characteristics:

1. Wahabis and Deobandis both declare istighatha  as Kufr and shirk , there by labelling the Sunni Muslims as kafir and muhrik.
2. Wahabis declare killing Sunni Muslims and taking their property as legal and Ismail Dehalvi also killed Muslims of the North West region [India-Pakistan border] and his followers forcibly married Sunni Pathan women.
3. Wahabis and Deobandis , both , use the word Mushrik  for  Sunni Muslims.
4. Wahabis and Deobandis both believe in tampering books and distributing the tampered editing  so as to propagate their view.
5. Both these sects , wahabis and deoobandis have always lost debate with Ahlus Sunnah. But they still continue to preach their cult teaching.
6.  The strongest bond between Wahabis and Deobandis is their belief towards Prophet ( Sal allahu alayhi wa sallam) . Both these group portray our Prophet (PBUH) as a normal human being and try to minimize his status and authority which Allah has bestowed upon him ( sal allahu alayhi wa sallam)
7.  Both the group has immense love and respect for Ibn Abdal wahab al Najadi  al Tamimi, who killed Sunni Muslims and destroyed the graves of the companions of the Prophet(PBUH).
8. Both the group try to attribute defects in Allah

Wahabis say Allah is confined in a direction and has human attributes. 
Deobandis on the  other hand say  Allah can lie. { Astagfirullah}.

9. Wahabis and Deobandis  both believe in destroying all elevated  graves of Muslims. In past the scholars  of both the groups have done this .

Quote: Deobandi:
"In Taqwiyat al-Iman, Shah Isma’il Shahid strongly condemned practices prevalent amongst the laymen where they would seek help from the saints by uttering statements such as “O Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir Jaylani! Give me something for the sake of Allah” – this is istighathah and completely impermissible. Regarding such a practice he writes,
 “one should refrain from such statements which reek of shirk and are disrespectful towards Allah Most High(Taqwiyat al-Iman, p.123)."

Books can be written on this topic showing the relationship between wahhabis and deobandis. But for the time being this is sufficient for those who want to begin their investigation.

The smart deobandis try to use expressions like: “ lying of Allah is  ‘aqlan ( rationally) possible  but shar’an ( as per shariah law) impossible”.

And if we say  your elder being a hypocrite is  rationally possible, but as per shariah law it is impossible,  they become angry!

They can’t hear a defective word directed towards their elders,  but their filthy tongues attribute  defect towards Allah azz wa jal who is Rahman and Rahim. Interestingly, these  deobandis claim to follow a sufi chain!

The scholars of Ahlus sunnah have said there cannot be any “ tasawwuf” unless your aqida ( belief ) is correct.

These deobandis should fear Allah and stop preaching their teachings which ascribes defect in Allah

No amount of writing on tasawwuf  and reading books on tasawwuf can help these deobandis, or anyone who accepts such evil ideas of  the deobandis .

The true people on the path of tasawwuf , the people of  haq , the followers of Ahlus Sunnah wal jamah have explained all the secrets of tasawwuf. Muslims should keep away from these “pseudo sufi shaykhs” who are teaching that Allah can lie,  and on the other hand claim to teach the method of acquiring love of Allah!

We seek refuge in Allah from these robbers of faith ( iman ) who are harming Islam and Muslims through internet and print media. Ameen!


"Taqwiyat al-Iman and Sirat Mustaqim" 

Quote: Deobandi said:

“Ismail dahlavi his Taqwiyat al-Iman and Sirat Mustaqim 
A salient feature of the innovators of this age is to hurl charges of Wahhabism against the great scholar, muhaddith[1], sufi, reformer and mujahid, ‘Allamah Shah Muhammad Isma’il Shahid Dahlawi. It is interesting to note that when in 1821 Shah Isma’il Shahid and Sayyid Ahmad Shahid left for Hajj[2] along with 757 of their followers, the Holy Lands were under Ottoman rule and the followers of Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab had already been driven out. They had managed to control the Holy Lands for only a short amount of time. It would be contrary to logic and analogy to argue that Shah Isma’il Shahid and Sayyid Ahmad Shahid were influenced by a movement whose influence did not prevail in the Hijaz and the Holy Lands. Rather, the followers of Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab were vilified and defeated. It is unlikely therefore that in such an atmosphere the two respected shaykhs were influenced by an ideology which not only lacked influence in the region but was at the same time ostracized and demonized.”

Iza Ul Haq

Ismail Dehalvi , says in his Persian book: “ Iza Ul Haq” :

“Wahadatul Wajood and Shahood is Biddah

(Please keep in mind , the chisti sabri chain of deobandi is purely “ wajoodi” chain !)

And Ismail Dehalvi continues:
“ to have this belief that Allah is free of time, location , direction and that Allah will be seen without direction ( on the day of Judgment) all this is Biddah”.

Ismail Dehalvi says: “ to make “tawil” of Ayat e Mutashbbihat is Biddah

And Mawlana Rashid Gangohee says: “ the Aqida of Ismail Dehalvi was “ Sahijh” Aqida !

Hazrat Shah Makhsoos Ullah Dihlawi writes:

“The answer to the first question concerning Taqwiyatul Iman – and I call it Tafwiyatul Iman (with the letter faa) – is that which I have written in a monograph refuting it named Mu’eedul Imanf.
Isma’il’s book is not only against the traditions of our family but it is against the Tawĥīd of all the Prophets and Messengers themselves! Because Prophets and Messengers are sent to teach the people and make them walk the path of Tawĥīd. In this book however, there is no sign of that Tawĥīd nor the Sunnah of the Messengers.
Things that are claimed as Shirk and Bid’ah in this book and taught to the people have not been
labeled as such by any of the Prophets or their followers. If there is any proof otherwise, ask his followers to show it to us.

The answer to the fourth question is that the Wahabi’s book [ibn Abdu’l Wahab Najdi] was the text and this is as if it’s commentary.
The answer to the fifth point is that Shah Abdul Aziz was impaired by his poor-sight. When he heard about the book, he said that if he were not ill, he would have written a refutation similar to Tuhfa Ithna Ashariya.

It is the grace of Allah that I (Mawlānā Makhsoos Ullah) wrote a rebuttal of the commentary (Tafwiyatul Iman) by course of which the text (Kitab al-Tawĥīd) was also refuted. My father, Shah Rafiuddin, had not seen the book but when Shah Abdul Aziz saw it and expressed his disapproval, I set out writing the refutation.

Shah Ismaeel Dehalvee 
and his teacher  
Sayed Ahmed Barewli Balakot

So it is important to know which books do deobandis themselves rely to know the history/ biography of their  leaders.

1)  Sawanag Ahmedi wa Tawareekh Ajeeba – About  Life of  sayed ahmed barewli  and Ismaeel Dehalvee  – By Munshi  mohammed jafar Thaneswari

2)  Hayat Tayyeba — About  Life of  sayed ahmed barewli  and Ismaeel Dehalvee  — By Mirza Hairat Dehalvee

Mawlana  Manzoor Nomani al Deobandi writes:
Hayat  Tayeeba of Mirza Hairat Dehalvee is an authentic and reliable  biography of  Shah Ismaeel Dehalvee “ (Al Furqan , Shaheed Number, 1355 AH , page 51)

 About biography of Sayed Ahmed Mawlana Hasan ali Nadvi writes:
Tawareekh Ajeeba is the first book about the life history of syed  ahmed  through which much can be known about the life of syed ahmed sahib( Seerat syed ahmed , page 8)

 Munshi Thaneswari writes:
“  Few of the historians have presented syed sahab in bad picture. They have potrayed him as an enemy of British government . To remove this doubt and deception I decided to present the facts from the life of syed sahab so that people can see the truth. Upon examining his life history it can be seen clearly that  at least at  20 places  using proof from SHARIAHsyed sahab  instructed  his followers  not to revolt against britishers “( Sawang Ahmedi , page 226, Steam press, Lahore)

So here we have his biographer writing that syed sahab  never revolted against British and we have deobandi scholars potraying  syed sahab as a freedom fighter! And when asked to prove their claim , all they have is  Nothing !

“ It becomes clear from this that syed  sahab was never in support of  jihad against British. He used to think this government as his  own government. There is no doubt in it that if  British government was against syed sahab , then syed sahab would not have received support which he was getting in his fight against sikh. The British government wanted syed sahab to reduce the influence  of Sikh “
 ( Sawang Ahmed , page  139)

And now read this to be surprised!

 Mawlana Manzoor Nomani al Deobandi writes:
It is very famous that  he did not proclaim any Jihad against British, instead in his meeting at Calcutta or Patna he gave his consent for supporting British government  and this is also  well known that British government also supported him at many instances”

To get more surprises read this from the same book:

“ And this is also true that  during his stay at Calcutta , one day when Mawlana Ismaeel Dehalvee  was giving lecture ( waa’z) , one man asked a fatwa to mawlana that whether it is permissible  to declare jihad against British  govt? The mawlana replied it is not correct in any way to declare jihad against this just and impartial government”
( Sawang Ahmedi  page 57)

 The same incidence has also been recorded in Hayate Tayyeba
“ In Calcutta , when Mawlana  Ismaeel was giving lecture about Jihad and about the atrocities of Sikh then someone stood up from  the gathering and asked “ why don’t you give fatwa to do jihad against the britishers”. He replied” it is not wajib  ( compulsory)  to do any jihad with them .( aap ne jawab diya – un per jihad karna kisee tarah wajib nahee ). First of all we are under their shelter and secondly they do not make any hinderance in fulfilling our religious obligation. We all total freedom under this government . In fact if there is any attack on this government then it is FARD upon muslims to  fight that enemy and save our BRITISH Government from any kind of hardship “ ( Hayat tayyeba , page 29 , farooqi printing press , delhi)

“ On what basis can we do Jihad against British government and kill our shariah law”?
 ( Sawang Ahmedi , page 71)

Lord Hastings was very happy with the doings / achievements ( karguzariyon)  of sayed  Ahmed. A tent was erected between the two armies  and three men made a treaty; Ameer Khan , Lord Hasting and sayed ahmed sahab. Sayed Ahmed Sahab had great diffciculty in bringing “ameer kahn”into  right frame “ ( sayed sahab ney  ameer khan jo badee mushkil sey sheeshy mein utara tha) ( Hayate Tayyeba page 294)

 Mawlana Abul Hasan  Ali Nadvi writes:
“Once the group of syed sahab and his followers was passing through boat. They saw a British rider who was waiting with lots of food in Big containers. (URDU== palaki )  He arrived near boat and asked where is  “ padari sahab” . Hazrat replied from the boat” I am here “. The British rider got down the horse, took his hat in his hand and reached on the boat. After inquiring well being, the British rider said “I am waiting for  you since  three days and had appointed my men to look for your group. They told me that today your group will be reaching here , so I was busy getting food prepared for you since sunset. Sayed sahab ordered the food to be taken in utensils. The food was distributed among the group and the British rider stayed for two- three hours and then left the place”
(  Seerat sayed ahmed Ahmed Shaheed , page 190 , By Mawlana Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi)

This is the Urdu wording..
“ sayed ahmed sahab ka qafila  kashtiyon per sawaar ho kar ek maqam  say guzar raha tha  ki itaney mein  dekhtaey hain ki ek angrez ghoday per sawaar  chand palikiyon  mein khana rakh  kashti key qareeb  aaya aur poocha ki padre sahab  kahan hai. Hazrat ney jawab diya  “main yahan per mawjood hoon”. Angrez ghodey per sey utara  aur topee  haath mein lekar kashtee per pahooncha aur mijaz purse eke baad  kaha ki teen  roz sey mainey apaney mulazim yahan khadey kar diye they ki aap ki ittila karein.  Aaj unhonay ittila ki kee aaghalab yeh hai kli hazrat  qafiley ke saath  aaj tumhary makaan  ke samey pahoonchey, yeh ittila pa kar gharoob aftaab tak  main khaney ki  tayyari mein  mashgool raha , tayyar kar key laya hoon . Sayed sahab ney hukm diya  ki khana apaney  bartanon  mein  muntaqil kar liya jai. Khana le kar qafiley mein taqseem kar diya gaya  aur angrez  do- teen ghantay tahar kar chala gaya”

Can anyone tell me why was this British soldier waiting for three days for sayed ahmed sahab? 
And when this soldier said :  where is  padari sahab , prompt came a reply , I am here! 

There was no  strange feeling when a British called a mawlana as “ padree sahab” .

And above this , the deobandis spread on internet that ,  Ismaeel Dehalvee  was  fighting against British!

Sayed Ahmed Barelwi himself tells about his mission:
 “I have been blessed with an  ilham that I should  fight with sikh and end their existence .”
(Sawang Ahmedi  page 180)

He also said

“My fight is not with muslims  or Kuffar , but my fight is with Sikh . I have no enmity with British government

 Now read what Mawlana Rashid Gangohee   says:

“   Hazrat Mawlana Rashid Ahmed said that  he was informed by Hafiz jaani that  he was one of the member of that group. Many miracles were  seen to be performed by  sayed sahab. Maulvi  Abdul Hay lucknowi, maulvi Isameel Dehalvee  and maulvi Hussein Rampuri were also members of the group and all these were in the ship. Sayed SAHAB DID HIS FIRST JIHAD  AGAINST MUSAMMA  YAAR MUHAMMED KHAN  , WHO WAS THE RULER OF YAGISTAN”  ( Tazkiratur Rashid ,  vol 2 , page 270 )

 I want readers to decide, whether Yaar Mohammed Khan is the name of some Muslim or some Sikh?

 Please recall, I have posted scan on another thread where we saw how sayed ahmed sahab left battle  front in between and  was found sitting in some cave ! When his followers found him and asked him why he has left the battle field , then he said , he has been commanded like this !

So at one place he says , he has been given ilham to fight sikh and later he says he has been commanded to leave battle field, On the same post it was shown how this sayed ahmed sahab destroyed  those Muslim graves which were elevated!

How serious was mawlana in his fight against Sikh , can be read here.

“  When sayed sahab had enough people with him , then with consultation from  Mawlana Isameel,  and using influence of  shaykh Ghulam  Ali rayees , Allahabad , he informed Lt Governor of the north western region that we are planning to  do Jihad with sikh , does Govt has any objection to this?  The Lt Governor replied that as long as our  sovereignty is not effected , we are not bothered” (Hayate Tayyeba, page 302)

 This is cause Jihad for British govt!  See, how sayed sahab is taking permission from British rulers and calling it jihad !

Quote: Deobandi said:
Shah Isma’il Shahid was bay’ah in the Naqshbandi tariqah whereas many followers of Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab are against tariqah-based tasawwuf. He gave bay’ah to Sayyid Ahmad Shahid at the advice of his uncle Imam Shah ‘Abd al-’Aziz Dahlawi.”

Sayyid Ahmad of Balakot (b.1786CE - d.1831CE) Is not considered to be a true student being that he had deviated away from what Shah `Abdul Aziz and Shah Waliullah had taught and Shah `Abdul Aziz himself, as narrated in the book:

انوار آفتاب صداقت
The Lustres of the Sun of Truth
Written by:
Qazi Fazl Ahmad Naqshbandi Mujaddadi


had expressed disapproval upon the Wahhabi creed of Isma`il Dehlvi and his teacher, Sayyid Ahmad of Balakot.

Finally, he met his Waterloo in 1831 when the Sikhs under Kunwar Sher Singh stormed his citadel at Balakot. The great mujãhid fell in the very first battle he ever fought. His corpse along with that of his second in command was burnt, and the ashes were scattered in the winds. Wahhabi/Deobandis hail him as a shahîd.
