IMAM SHAFI (R.A) ON AHLUL BAYT:

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

Shia hatred to Sunnis is regarding the Ahlul Bayth, Shia think Sunni do not love Ahlul Bayth, due to misguided sects emerged in Sunni Islam (like Wahhabi Qadiyani etc)  and due to their false preaching and misguidance, some people from Sunni creed and sects think that loving  Ahlul Bayth is becoming Shia!

Both ways are wrong, Ahlu Sunna were always loved and followed the way of ahlul bayt.

Due to the corruptions that is happening in the Muslim world, people have been misguided so much after the Ottoman Caliphate was destroyed!

All Imams of Tasawwuf (Tariqah) are from Ahlul Bayth, it is from the the Spiritual Knowledge and Purification of Heart revealed and transmitted from time to time.

So when you start Malice against ahlul bayt and Sahaba, that time you are playing a disrespectful game with the trust of Allah’s Messenger (alaihiswalathu wa salam)!, Beware, be careful oh Jahil Sunnis and Jahil Shias!

 Daylmi narrates from Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed that the Prophet (s.a.w) said :أهل بيتي والأنصار كٌرشي وعيبتي وصحابي وموضع مسرتي وأمانتي فاقبلوا من محسنهم وتجاوزوا عن مسيئهم

‘My Ahl ul Bait and the Ansaar are my wealth, my body, my household and my family, the locus of my happiness and my trust. So accept the good deeds of their good and overlook the mistakes of any of them (not from the Hudood of Allah).’ [Daylami in Al-Firdaws, Vol. 1, Page 407, Hadith 1645]

So, Imam Shafi’ (R.A) s Testimony on Ahlul Bayth is very relevant in this time. I am sure those who are sick in their heart and those who want to cause fitnah will reject this testimonies:

In one of the hajj rituals when pilgrims were at Mina and when some enemies of the Ahlul-Bayt (as) were in attendance, Shafi’i called the love of Ahlul-Bayt an entitlement of the family of the Prophet and addressed the pilgrims as such:
یا راکِباً قِف بالمُحَصَّبِ مِن منیً
وَاهتِف بِقاعِدِ خَیفِها وَالنَّاهِضِ
سَحَراً إذا فاضَ الحَجیجُ إلی مِنیً
فَیضاً کَمُلتَطِمِ الفُراتِ الفائِضِ
إن کانَ رَفضاً حُبُّ آلِ مُحمَّدٍ
فَلیَشهَدِ الثَّقَلانِ أنّی رَافضِی
Translation:
“O’ Pilgrims! On your way to the House of Allah, pause shortly in the sands of Muzdalifah. At dawn, when the caravans of pilgrims move toward Mina, like a roaring river, call upon them and say: “If love of the Prophet’s family means “rafdh”, then let mankind know, that surely I am a “Rafedhi.”
One of the points raised in Shafi’i’s poems is love of Ahlul-Bayt, the family of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) which he deems obligatory. Shafi’i maintains that if a person does not declare salawaat for him and his family, his prayer is incomplete and will not be accepted:

یا آلَ بَیتِ رَسولِ الله حُبُّکُمُ
فَرضٌ مِنَ الله فی القُرآنِ أنزَلَهُ
کَفاکُم مِن عظیمِ القَدرِ أنّکُم
مَن لَم یُصلِّ عَلَیکُم لَا صَلَاةَ لَهُ
Translation:
“O Ahle Bait of the Prophet of Allah! Love for you has been made obligatory for us by Allah, as revealed in the Holy Qur’an (referring to the above verse). It is sufficient for your dignity that if one does not send salutations to you in the ritual prayers, his prayers will not be accepted.”

قَالُوا: تَرَفَّضتَ قُلتُ: کَلَّا
مَا الَّرفضُ دینی وَ لا إعتِقادی
لکِن تَوَلَّیتُ غَیرَ شَکٍّ
خَیرَ إمَامٍ وَ خَیرَ هَادی
إن کَانَ حُبُّ الوَلِیِّ رَفضاً
فإنَّنی أرفَضُ العِبادَ
Translation:
They say: You are a Rafedhi and heretic, I say: Never did I become a Rafedhi, apostasy is not my religion. But needless to say that in my heart, there is much love (and respect) for the greatest leader (Imam Ali (As). If loving Wali of Allah (the friend of God?) is Rafdh, then I’m Rafedhi of 1st rank!
In other poems, he makes clear and tangible reference to intercession of the Ahlul-Bayt (as) of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) hoping to be interceded with God by them on the Day of Resurrection, the day of reckoning:
لَئِن کانَ ذَنبِی حُبُّ آلِ محمَّدٍ
فذلِکَ ذَنبٌ لَستُ عَنهُ أتوبُ
هُمُ شُفَعائی یومَ حَشری و مَوقِفی إذا
کثرتنی یوم ذاک ذنوب
If loving the household of Prophet (pbuh) is a sin, then I will never repent on this sin!
Of course, on the Day of Judgment, they (Ahl-e-Bait) will be my intercessors on the Day when I shall be resurrected. That is when my sins are too many on that day.

بَرِئتُ إلَی المُهیمِنِ مِن أُناسٍ
یَرَونَ الرَّفضَ حُبَّ الفاطِمیّه
إذا ذکروا عَلیّا أو بَنیه
أفاضوا بالرّوایات الویّه
عَلی آل الرّسُول صلاة رَبی
وَ لَعنتُه لتلکَ الجَاهلیّه
I disassociate myself from those (people) who believe that remembering the sons of Fatima (AS) is Rafdh. If anyone talks about Ali (as) and Fatima (as) and their sons, they (enemies of Ahl-e-Bayt) mend this way, they think that it is a foolishness (to remember Ali and Fatima). Supplications (Duroods and Salams) of my Allah be upon Prophet (pbuh). And curse of Allah be upon this ignorance and infidelity (hating Ahul-Bayt).

و سائلی عن حُب أهل البیت هل؟
أُقرّ إعلاناً به أم أجحدُ
هَیهاتَ ممزوجٌ بلحمی و دَمی
حُبُّهم و هو الهُدی و الرشدُ
یا أهل بیتِ المصطفی یا عدتی
وَ مَن علی حبّهُم أعتَمدُ
أنتم إلی اللهِ غَداً وَسیلَتی
و کیف أخشی؟ و بکم اعتضدُ
ولیّکم فی الخُلدِ حَیّ خَالدٌ
و الضدُ فی نارٍ لَظیً مُخلّدُ
Translation:
“O those who ask me about my love of Ahlul-Bayt (as); should I confess openly that I love them or should I deny that? Never shall I deny their love because their love and affinity is blended in my flesh and blood. Their love is a means of my guidance and growth. O family of Muhammad, O those whom I turn to, O those whose love is my reliance, you are my intercessors on the Day of Judgment. Why should I be afraid when I trust you and have confidence in you? He who loves you will reside eternally in Paradise and your enemies will be for ever in Hell fire”

وَ لَمَّا رَأیتُ النَّاسَ قَد ذَهَبَت بِهِم
مَذَاهِبُهُم فِی أبحُرِ الغَیِّ وَ الجَهلِ
رَکِبتُ عَلَی اسمِ الله فِی سُفُنِ النَّجَا
وَ هُم آل بَیتِ المُصطفَی خَاتَمِ الرُّسُلِ
وَ أمسَکتُ حَبلَ اللهِ وَ هُوَ وَلاءوهُم
کَما قَد أُمِرنَا بالتَمسُّکِ بالحَبلِ
When I saw different religions and jurisprudential schools steering towards ignorance and misguidance, I embarked in the name of God on the ark of salvation i.e. the family of the Seal of Prophets and got hold of the divine covenant which is the very love of them. Indeed, God has commanded us to hold fast to the divine covenant.

What does Islam say about Establishing good Innovations?

PROOF FOR ESTABLISHING GOOD INNOVATION (BID’AH HASSANA):
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

 photo-main
Jarîr relates that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever initiates a good practice (sunnah hasanah) in Islam and is emulated by others in doing so will get the reward of it and the reward of all those who act upon it without their rewards being diminished in any respect. And whosoever initiates an evil practice (sunnah sayyi’ah) in Islam and is emulated by others will bear the sin of it and the sin of all those who act on it without their burden being diminished in the least. ” [Sahîh Muslim: (1017)]
A bad bid’ah includes things which are forbidden in Islam or things which are used exclusively by other nations for their own religious purpose(Persians, Byzantine,pagans)
For example: Candles are used by every nations for the purpose of light!, but it is used for religious reasons by only a specific religions!
So to use Candles with religious significance is imitating the unbelievers and thus it is a bad innovation (Bid’ah)
A good bid’ah: Milad Nabi is good bid’ah, which encourage the brotherhood of Muslims, which makes zikr of Allah and Salawat on Prophet, which givers Dawah to everyone in the form of vision and hearing. Which distribute food all of this activities are in accordance with Quran and Sunnah and can’t see any forbidden (haram) action in it!
WHAT IS GOOD BID’AH (INNOVATION)?:
A Good innovation (Bid’a Hasana) is something which does not contradict Shari’ah.
Because Most good Bid’ah (Innovations) are not of Prophet’s Sunnah and not of the sunnah of rightly guided successors. For Example: Using speakers for calling Azan and use of modern technology for travelling, bathing,making ablution, tooth paste ,digital zikr counter etc..
There is neither reward nor punishment for using such things!. Such Bid’ah does not give any reward nor punishment!
But reward is given for the action for for means! For example if one person make zikr according to Sunnah but using innovated digital zikr counter, there is no reward for using that innovated digital counter!
A Rewarding Good Innovation (Bid’ah Hassana) is  an Innovation which is in accordance with Quran (Shari’ah) and Sunnah (Hadith)
 
In this Bid’ah Hassana, two or more good deeds (Sunnah actions) are in incorporated to become a “Good Innovation”
For example feeding people is a Sunnah, Making Zikr is  a Sunnah, giving dawah (speech) about Islam is a Sunnah, Glorifying and Marching with Takbeer is a Sunnah, and Prophet’s Birth is a Sunnah of Prophet (S.A.W) as Allah says: “Oh Muhmmad We have not sent you but As a Mercy to the Whole World”
So when All this Sunnah of Prophet and Sunnath of Allah (Sending Prophet as a Mercy to the world) is brought together as a single action in the form of celebrating the birth of Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be up on him) then forms a “Good Innovation” or Bid’ah Hassana
So don’t follow those who know nothing from Quran and hadith, except confusion misguidance!
AND PROPHET (PEACE BE UP ON HIM)SAYS IN ANOTHER NARRATION:
On the authority of Aishah, who said : The messenger of Allah said:
“He who innovates something in this matter of ours that is not of it will have it rejected.”
narrated by Bukhari and Muslim
And in one version by Muslim it reads :
“He who does an act which our matter is not [in agreement] with will have it rejected.”
So it is clear that the bid’ah which leads to hell fire is those bid’ah which is in contradiction (actions Haram things) to Quran and Sunnah!
Otherwise Muslims will have lived  with the things which is used and practiced only in the time of Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam!
Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) also said: “Seek knowledge even if you have to go to China”
Did Prophet say to seek innovated knowledge from other nations, when Allah says: “This day I have perfected your religion”???
[5:3] “This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favours upon you, and have chosen for you, Islam as your religion.”
So it is clear that good innovation are accepted when it is in accordance with Quran and Sunnah!

SOME GOOD BID’AH:

  1. Umar Ibn Khattab (R.A) orgaznized Tarawih into Jamath and of 20 Raka is a good innovation (Hadith: follow the Sunnah of my rightly guided successors)
  2. Four Madhabs (Hanafi Shafi Maliki Hanbali:
    Even Salafis love and respect four Imams, especially Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (R.A). And they take hadith from these Imams and the Imams (Bukhari,Muslim and so on) who followed Madhab (Imam Bukhari, Imma Muslim and Imam Tirmidi were following Shafi Madhab)
    The four Madhabs were not existed in the time of Prophet (s.a.w) and Sahaba, so if all Bidah is error and if all error is misguidance and if all misguidance leads to hell fire! Then  what guarantee is there in the works of the four Imams and those who followed them (Imam Bukhari, Imam Muslim etc)?
    So wahhabis , stop fooling Muslims!, The four madhab itsrlf  prove that all Bidah are not error and misguidance!
    Did four Madhab existed in the time of Prophet (s.a.w) and Sahaba?
    If not , then four Madhabs are Bidah or not?
    If four Madhabs are Bidha , then the Imams of four madhabs are misguided?
    If the Imams of four madhab are misguided, then their followers: Imam Bukhari,Imam Imam Nasai , Imam Nawawi,Imam Abu Dawud, Imam Muslim , Imam Tirmidi are misguided?
    if they are misguided, then those who read their books and follow their teachings  can be/are misguided?
    Answer for this questions and after that we can talk about Bidah and following those who invent bidah!
  3. Adding vowels (harkath,Jamm, Kisr etc) to Quran, earlier Quran was in plain Arabic
  4. Building Mutli floor Masjid
  5. Loud speakers for Call of Prayer (Azan)
  6. Zikr counters 
  7. Electronic Quran and Hadith
  8. Electronic prayer reminders and clocks
  9. Madrassa (religious schools/madaaris) etc
  10. Celebrating the birth day of Prophet
  11. Displaying Quran verses and Names of Allah on Walls and Vehicles for blessings and protections
  12. Eating with spoon and fork (sunna eating is only with three fingers and drinking with right hand)
BAD INNOVATIONS
  1. Supporting Nationalist states in Muslim world to divide Muslims (that is against Quran- Hold fast the rope of Allah together and never be divided)
  2. Machine slaughtering 
  3. Building Mosques to divide Ummah (according to shari’ah only one Juma must be held in one place, except when there is problem of extreme weather conditions and lack of space,there can be more than one Juma)
  4. Abandoning loud Zikr after obligatory salah
  5. Assemblies without praising Allah and without giving salawat on Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) etc
Otherwise, you will have to call everyone and every nation as a “follower of Bid’ah”
So now, if Wahhabi argues that “follow the sunnah of my rightly guided successors” only means “Khulafa Rashideen”
Then will they call Imams of four madhab, their own Najdi Shaykh etc as innovatory?
How do they follow the hadith Books?, because No Sahaba or Khulafa Rashideen ever compiled a Hadith Books!
How do they even accept Saudi Arabia? Islamic rule is only Khilafa! So how it is legitimate to have funds for Islam from a Bidha state?
Look at your own life!
Or do you believe that Islam only about some part of your life and some part is according to your own desire?
Is your Ego is your God?
Enter in Islam, whole heartedly:ALLAH says in Al bakara
Islam is A-Z in one’s life, Islam covers whole life style of a person!
So Wake up to yourself, don’t fool yourself!

CELEBRATING THE BIRTH OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (S.A.W) EXPLAINED:
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.Quran 2:256There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
Past 1200 years Muslim celebrating the birth of Prophet Muahmmad (S.A.W)
SO AHADITH ABOUT DEVIANTS:
Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) says:Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman said, “People used to ask the Prophet, peace be upon him, about good things, but I used to ask him about bad things because I was afraid that they might overtake me. I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, we were lost in ignorance (jahiliyyah) and evil, then Allah brought this good (i.e. Islam). Will some evil come after this good thing?’ He said, ‘Yes’ I asked, ‘And will some good come after that evil?’ He said, ‘Yes, but it will be tainted with some evil’ I asked, ‘How will it be tainted?’ He said, ‘There will be some people who will lead others on a path different from mine. You will see good and bad in them.’ I asked, ‘Will some evil come after that good?’ He said, ‘Some people will be standing and calling at the gates of Hell; whoever responds to their call, they will throw him into the Fire.’ I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, describe them for us.’ He said, ‘They will be from our own people, and will speak our language.’ I asked, What do you advise me to do if I should live to see that?’ He said, ‘Stick to the main body (jama’ah) of the Muslims and their leader (imam). I asked, What if there is no main body and no leader?’ He said, ‘Isolate yourself from all of these sects, even if you have to eat the roots of trees until death overcomes you while you are in that state.’ “Sahih Muslim Book 020, Hadith Number 4553Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Follow the way of the largest group of Muslims! For, he who deviates from this group will be thrown into Hell!” [Sunnan Ibn Majah, Hadith # 3950]Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam ) said: “Allah will never allow my Ummah to unite upon misguidance and incorrect beliefs. Allah’s mercy, blessings and protection are with the largest group of Muslims. And he who deviates from this largest group of Muslims will be thrown into Hell.” Sunan Al Tirmidhi Vol.2 Pg.39)Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “He who deviates from the largest group of Muslims, even as much as a hand span, has himself cut off his connection with Islam”. Abu Dawud)

So make research, and come to the way of major group of Muslims-Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah (Mazhab following Sunni-Sufi Muslim creed)

Taking membership in some Islamic organization will not increase your Iman or will not benefit in the hereafter. They can only do the work like UN/Redcross/like some missionaries to call you to the basic understanding of basic Islam.

“you can only succeed but by following the way how the earlier generation succeeded”

And finally:

On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari that the prophet said:“Religion is sincerity”. We said: “To whom?” He said: “To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk”.

narrated by Muslim.
