Question # : 1471


I have heard that janab Moulana Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi mentioned in Fatawa-e rashdia that: 1. it is possible that Allah (azzawajalla) can speak a lie (astaghfirullah). 2. Its permissible to eat crow. 3. "Rehmatullil aalameen" laqab is not only for rasoolullah (sallallahu taala alaihi wasallam) 4. Its permissible to eat holy and diwali sweets sent by hindus( in diwali they keep the sweets in front of idols and people tell that its mixed with cow urine.) At first I doubted that he may have not written it. But i saw orignal fatawa-e rasheed, but its written exactly as i had heard. Kindly clarify regarding this and whether we can follow fatawa rasheedia or Janab rasheed gangohi. Request you to reply soon.

These are old and outdated questions; there have been written books in reply of the same. If you really like to have the answers of the questions then please read the book of Hazrat Maulana Khalil Ahmad: Al-muhannad ala Al-mufannad. This includes fatawa of Ulama of Haramain (Makkah and Medina). This book is detailed with proofs. You will feel satisfied.
