VIRTUES OF ABU DHARR (R.A) AND THE RIGHT PATH ACCORDING TO HIS UNDERSTANDING: (Understanding of Salafu Saalih)
WHERE IS THE ROPE OF ALLAH?
BismillahiRahmaniRaheem
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Sallim
Surah 3. Al-i’Imran, Ayah 103

وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنْتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُمْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنْتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِنَ النَّارِ فَأَنْقَذَكُمْ مِنْهَا ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ

WaiAAtasimoo bihabli Allahi jameeAAan wala tafarraqoo waothkuroo niAAmata Allahi AAalaykum ith kuntum aAAdaan faallafa bayna quloobikum faasbahtum biniAAmatihi ikhwanan wakuntum AAala shafa hufratin mina alnnari faanqathakum minha kathalika yubayyinu Allahu lakum ayatihi laAAallakum tahtadoona

And hold fast, all of you together, to the rope of Allah, and do not separate. And remember Allah’s favor unto you: how ye were enemies and He made friendship between your hearts so that ye became as brothers by His grace; and (how) ye were upon the brink of an abyss of fire, and He did save you from it. Thus Allah maketh clear His revelations unto you, that haply ye may be guided;

THE ROPE OF ALLAH IS WITH THE AHL AL BAYTH:

Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Wahhabi publications)
Hadith Number 3788: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me” (Sahih)

THOSE WHO FELL FROM THE INHERITORS OF THE ROPE OF ALLAH (AHLUL BAYTH) FELL INTO THE FIRE:
Tabarani narrates from Abu Dhar, who said: I heard the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam say:

مثل أهل بيتي فيكم كمثل سفينة نوح في قوم نوح من ركبها نجا ومن تخلف عنها هلك ومثل باب حطة في بني اسرائيل
The example of my Ahl al-Bait within you is the example of the Ark of Nuh within the nation of Nuh; whoever boarded it was saved and whoever stayed behind was destroyed. It is also the example of the ‘Hitha’ of the Bani Isra’eel.’ [Tabarani in Al-Awsat, Vol. 4, Page 283, Hadith 3506 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 2, Page 427, Hadith 3312]

Hadith al-Safinah/Safinah Tradition:
Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Up On Him) has compared his Ahlul Bayt (Ahl al-Bayt) to Noah’s ark. Whoever loves and follows them will attain salvation and whoever violates their sanctity will drown. While holding the door of Holy Kaaba, Abu Dharr told that he had heard Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Up On Him) say, “My family among you is like Noah’s ark. He who sails in it will be safe, but he who holds back from it will perish.”

Virtues of Abu Dharr (R.A):
Abudullah Bin Amr (R.A) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There is no one more truthful , that the sky has shared and the earth has carried , than Abu Dharr” (Hasan) Jami Tirmidhi 3801

Abu Dharr walks upon the earth with the asceticism of Eisa bn Maryam (alaihissalam) # Jami Tirmidhi 3802

SAYING ‘ALAIHISSALAM’ FOR THE IMAMS OF AHLUL BAYTH :
Understanding of the salaf:

Sahaba narrated Hadith on Imam Al Hasan and Imam Al Husain (Peace be upon them) and used, “alaihimassalam” in reverence for the grand children of the Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam.
See Jami At-Tirmidhi, chapter ‘al Manaaqib’

Aqidha of Jahil Sunna wal bidha, using ‘alaihissalam’ is only allowed for the Prophets.

AL ABBAS BIN ABDUL MUTTALIB (ALAIHISSALAM) :
Ahlul Bayth :

Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam says :
“Al Abbas is from me and I am from him”

“By Allah, faith will not enter in the heart of a Muslim until he love you for my relationship”

“Faith has seventy odd branches”

Loving Ahlul Bayth is a part of pure Faith and following Ahlul Bayth is a necessity for right guidance.

Reference: Jami At-Tirmidhi

THE AHLUL BAYTH AND ANSAAR :
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Alaa Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim

Zaid bin Arqam narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said to Ali, Farimah, Al-Hasan and Al-Husain (Peace be upon them) : “I am at war with whoever makes war with you, and peace for whoever whoever makes Peace with you”.

~ Jami At-Tirmidhi 3870

Some Jahil Saudi muftis say, Rahmahullah for Yazid. Some other Jahils say, the Hadith is weak.

But there are Ahadith in support of this Hadith.

For example: Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam says about Imam Ali (Alaihissalam):

“Ali is from me and I am from Ali’. (Grade: Hasan) Jami At-Tirmidhi 3719

“For whomever I am his ‘Mawla’ then Ali is his ‘Mawla’ (Sahih) Jami At-Tirmidhi 3713

“Ali, you are to me in a position that Harun was to Musa [except that there is no prophet after me] Jami At-Tirmidhi (Sahih), Sahih Muslim, Ahmad, Tabrani.

“None loves you except a believer and none hates you except a hypocrite”. (Sahih) Jami At-Tirmidhi 3717 (2)

The Chapter in Quran on “Hypocrites” (Sura Al Munafiqun) clarifies rest of the matter.

“Al-Hasan and Al-Husain are the chiefs of the youths of paradise”. (Sahih) ~ Jami At-Tirmidhi 3768

CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS OF THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH TO LOVE AHLUL BAYTH :

The Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon them) saw Al-Hasan and Al-Husain, so he said: “O Allah, I love them, so love them”. (Sahih) Jami At-Tirmidhi 3782

The Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: “Love Allah for what He nourishes you with of His Blessings, love me due to the love of Allah, and love the people of my house due to love of me (Hasan) Jami At-Tirmidhi 3789

“Indeed Farimah is but a part of me, I am harmed by what harms her and I am uncomfortable by what makes her uncomfortable”. (Sahih) Jami At-Tirmidhi 3869

THE FRIENDS OF GOD:
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Verily Allah ta’ala has said: ‘Whosoever shows enmity to a wali (friend) of Mine, then I have declared war against him. And My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved to Me than the religious duties I have obligated upon him. And My servant continues to draw near to me with nafil (supererogatory) deeds until I Love him. When I Love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, and his sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to seek refuge with Me, I would surely grant him refuge.’ ” [Al-Bukhari]

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَة رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم إنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى قَالَ: “مَنْ عَادَى لِي وَلِيًّا فَقْد آذَنْتهُ بِالْحَرْبِ، وَمَا تَقَرَّبَ إلَيَّ عَبْدِي بِشَيْءٍ أَحَبَّ إلَيَّ مِمَّا افْتَرَضْتُهُ عَلَيْهِ، وَلَا يَزَالُ عَبْدِي يَتَقَرَّبُ إلَيَّ بِالنَّوَافِلِ حَتَّى أُحِبَّهُ، فَإِذَا أَحْبَبْتُهُ كُنْت سَمْعَهُ الَّذِي يَسْمَعُ بِهِ، وَبَصَرَهُ الَّذِي يُبْصِرُ بِهِ، وَيَدَهُ الَّتِي يَبْطِشُ بِهَا، وَرِجْلَهُ الَّتِي يَمْشِي بِهَا، وَلَئِنْ سَأَلَنِي لَأُعْطِيَنَّهُ، وَلَئِنْ اسْتَعَاذَنِي لَأُعِيذَنَّهُ”.
[رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ].
Reference : 40 Hadith Nawawi 38
English translation : Hadith 38

This is enough to understand the teachings of Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) regarding Ahlul Bayth and pious companions and hatred and malice against them bring a Retribution from Allah the Mighty and Sublime.

And one who disobey or disregard the teachings of Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam cannot attain faith (Iman)

See Quran 4:65 But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad SAW) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission.

And Quran 4:80 Whoever obeys the messenger is obeying GOD. As for those who turn away, we did not send you as their guardian.

“It is not fit for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and Messenger has indeed strayed in a plain manner.” (33:36)

“Let those beware who oppose the Messenger’s order! In case some fitnah(trial) should befall them or a painful torment be inflicted upon them.” (24:63)

“And be not as those who divided and differed among themselves after the clear proofs had come to them.” (3:105)

“Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, your kindred, the wealth you have gained, the commerce in which you fear decline, or the dwellings in which you delight — are dearer to you than Allah or His Messenger and striving in His cause — then wait until Allah brings about His decision. And Allah guides not the rebellious.” (9:24)

THE ROPE OF ALLAH IS WITH THE AHL AL BAYTH:

Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Wahhabi publications)
Hadith Number 3788: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me” (Sahih)

So we can see that, one has to be guided, he must follow the book of Allah and pious members of Ahlul Bayth (Imams and shaykhs from Ahlul Bayt and largest creed of Islam as the whole context of the principles of following religion)
,so if you not follow as the Messenger of Allah Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam instructed, then you shall certainly become misguided and strayed!

TO FORGIVE AND OVERLOOK THE MISTAKES OF ANSAR AND AHLUL BAYTH :

Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam says: “Indeed my elite, those whom I lean towards, are the people of my house and my close ones are the Ansar, so forgive those who do wrong from them and accept from those who do good from them.” Jami At-Tirmidhi 3904

So take wisdom and follow correct path.

Distinguish Al Jamah (Saved Group) from many Jamah (sects)

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.

Hazret Shaykh Hoja Lokman Effendi (Q.S)

Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim

Madad Ya Sultanul Awliya Madad, Madad Ya Sahibul Saif Madad Ya RijaaluAllah

A QUESTIONNAIRE AND KEY ANSWERS TO IDENTIFY AL-JAMAH (SAVED SECT)
“Al Jamah” (Saved group and other sects can be distinguished today by asking answers for the questions below::

1- Whether they accept celebrating Mawlid Nabi (alaihiswalathu wa salam) as a virtuous deed, because all Imams and Khalifas of the Main Body of Muslims celebrated Mawlid Nabi Shareef.

2- Whether they follow the Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah Imams and Sunni Schools of Madhab.

3- Whether they Follow Schools of Tazkiya (Sufism/Tasawwuf)

4- Whether they accept Ahlul Bayt as legitimate heirs of the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) after Abu Bakar (R.A), Umar (R.A), Usman (R.A) and Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (R.A)

5- Whether they accept Major Hadith Books and it’s teachings as true.

6- Whether they believe in Prophets life in the graves!

If their answers are “yes” to all, then they are ahlu sunna wal jamah, as stated “Al Jamah” in Quran (4:59) and in Hadith (Main body)

If their answers is no to all of these , then they should be from unbelievers, if they answer “No” to some, then they must be “hypocrite/strayed people” from right path!

Summary: So if they answer “no” to some of this questions or all of these questions, then stay out from them, even if you find no friends and relatives to love and take care you. Isolate yourself from all these sects and groups!

Because:
1- If they say celebrating Mawlid is wrong and sinful act, and bidha and misguidance and error, then they are saying to you indirectly that, all Imams were misguided and strayed, they are saying, Khalifas of Islam (Like Ottoman Sultans, Abbasid Sultans and so on are in error)
Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) celebrated his birthday every Monday by fasting, Sahaba celebrated by reciting prayers in gathering.
See Hadith : It was narrated that Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (R.A) said: Mua’wiya (Radiyallahu ta’ala Anhu) said: “The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) went out to a circle -meaning ,of his companions- and said: ‘What are you doing?’
They said: ‘We have come together to pray to Allah and praise Him for guding us to His religion, and blessings us with you’.
He said: ‘I ask you ,by Allah, is that the only reason?
They said: “By Allah,we have not come together for any other reason..
He (Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam) said:I am not asking you to swear an oath because of any suspicion; rather Jibreel (A.S) came to me and told me that Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, is boasting of you to the angels.(Sahih).
Reference: Sunan an-Nasa’i Vol 6Hadith 5428, Darussalam Publications (Saudi-Salafi publications)

2- If they say following Madhab is wrong or if they do not follow one, they are meaning that all Imams like Imam Shafi, Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Ahmad, Imam Tirmidhi, Imam Abu Dawud and many other Imams are wrong!.
The Hadith in Bukhari describe this heretics who deny Madhabs and think they follow salaf, as Khawaariji people, “they talk as if they are best people, but they go out of Islam” (Sahih Bukhari)
See Narrated ‘Ali: I heard the Prophet saying, “In the last days (of the world) there will appear young people with foolish thoughts and ideas. they will give good talks, but they will go out of Islam as an arrow goes out of its game, their faith will not exceed their throats. So, wherever you find them, kill them, for there will be a reward for their killers on the Day of Resurrection.” (Sahih Bukhari Book 61, Hadith 577)

Narrated hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman: The people used to ask Allah’s Apostle about good, but I used to ask him about evil for fear that it might overtake me. Once I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We were in ignorance and in evil and Allah has bestowed upon us the present good; will there by any evil after this good?” He said, “Yes.” I asked, “Will there be good after that evil?” He said, “Yes, but it would be tained with Dakhan (i.e. Little evil).” I asked, “What will its Dakhan be?” He said, “There will be some people who will lead (people) according to principles other than my tradition. You will see their actions and disapprove of them.” I said, “Will there by any evil after that good?” He said, “Yes, there will be some people who will invite others to the doors of Hell, and whoever accepts their invitation to it will be thrown in it (by them).” I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Describe those people to us.” He said, “They will belong to us and speak our language” I asked, “What do you order me to do if such a thing should take place in my life?” He said, “Adhere to the group of Muslims and their Chief.” I asked, “If there is neither a group (of Muslims) nor a chief (what shall I do)?” He said, “Keep away from all those different sects, even if you had to bite (i.e. eat) the root of a tree, till you meet Allah while you are still in that state.” (Sahih Bukhari,Book 56, Hadith 803)

3- Following the way of Spiritual Purification (Tasawwuf) is not taught in Fiqh (Jurisprudence) books. Rather it is acquired by following Spiritual guides. (see Quran 17:80-81)

4- The importance of following, loving and keeping strong bond with Ahlul Bayth is mentioned in detail in Sahih Muslim, Musnad Ahmad, Jami At-Tirmidhi, Al Aswat, Al Mustradak Al Hakim etc
Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Wahhabi publications)
Hadith Number 3788: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me” (Sahih)

It is also mentioned in Quran 4:59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.

You must be patient with them:
See Bukhari book 89: Hadith 251 Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me.”

Sahih Bukhari Book 89 Hadith 257 Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet said, “If somebody sees his Muslim ruler doing something he disapproves of, he should be patient, for whoever becomes separate from the Muslim group even for a span and then dies, he will die as those who died in the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance (as rebellious sinners). (See Hadith No. 176 and 177)

5- Accepting Hadith is very important and commanded by the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam)
Quran is the Word of Allah, Hadiths are the explanations and teachings of the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam.
See 4:59,
Also, see Quran 4:65 But no, by the Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make thee judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against Thy decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction.

6– Prophets are alive in their Graves, Prophet Muhammad alaihihiswalathu wa salam saw, Sayyidina Musa (AS) praying in his grave during Al Isra wal Miraj .
Sahih Muslim Anas reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: I happened to pass by Moses as he was busy in saying prayer in his grave, and in the hadith transmitted on the authority of ‘Isa there is an addition of these words:, I happened to pass on the occasion of the Night journey.” in the hadith pertaining to Yunus (peace be upon him) the words of the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) are:” It is not meet for a, servant that he should say:” I am better than Yunus (jonah) son of Matta.” (Book 30, Hadith 5859)
Quran 2:154 And do not say of whomever are killed in the way of Allah, ” (They are) dead.” No indeed, they are alive but you are not aware.

Quran 3:169 Think not of those who are killed in the Way of Allah as dead. Nay, they are alive, with their Lord, and they have provision.

Finally, accept Islam and it’s call, completely!
Quran :208 O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.

Quran 2:85 Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allah is not unaware of what you do.

There are other points, like Isthighasa (asking help from those who veiled from this world), as we see Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam, asking help from Musa (A.S) in fixing Muslim ritual prayers during Al Isra Wal Miraj, but this is enough to understand saved sect from false sects!
