Question # : 1694


Why do you follow the preachings of Ashraf Ali Thanvi when he is proved to be a Kafir by ALA Hazrat and other Maulana's from Makkah and Madeena? His books Risaalahe-Al-Imdad, Hifzul Imaan etc clearly is a proof that is a Kafir! Why dont you follow the believes which are proved to be right and you'll have lost the debates on them like Ilme-Gayb?

If you are also given taufeeq to follow the preachings of Hazrat Thanvi you will also become a human being and a true Muslim, the darkness of shirk and bidah (polytheism and innovation) will go away from your heart. As far as labelling any Muslim with kufr is concerned, according to Hadith one is himself a kafir who calls a Muslim kafir:

عن عبد اللہ بن دینار انہ سمع ابن عمر رضی اللہ عنھما یقول: قال رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم: ایما امرئ قال لأخیہ کافر فقد باء بھا أحدھما ان کان کما قال والا رجعت علیہ (مسلم: 1/57)


Point out the beliefs of Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal-Jamat which we do not follow. You are requested to pay a visit to Deoband. Whatever truth will come up regarding Ilm-e-Gaib will be accepted and one who accepts the truth is on winner?s end.

Allah knows Best!
