Question By : Arafat

Asssala Mualekum, What do Muftiyan-e-kiram say: I am sunni and I consider Maulana Ahmad Raza as Wali of Allah, I follow the way he told us. I visit Mazars (graves) and kiss them I also offer Chadar onto the graves, I do Niyaz & Fatiha also there. I ask for help in my difficulties from the grave-men. I stand at the graves and read Salat-o-slama. I make slogan of ¡®Ya Rasoolallaah¡¯. I also believe that Rasoolullah (saws) hears my salam by the order of Allah. I celebrate Ghawse Pak¡¯s Gyarahvin (11th) and Jashn-e-Eid Miladunnabi very joyfully. Now tell me if I am yet Muslim or I have been out of Islam. Am I Kafir or Mushrik?
(Note) It should be clear that we do not worship our Buzurgane Deen nor we take them as God; they are servants of Allah, they help us and remove our problems by the order of Allah. Plz reply with the reference in the Qur'an or Hadi

The answer to your question is as follows:

It is our view that Ahmad Raza Khan held many views inconsistent with the Shari'ah. Ahmad Raza Khan Barailvi has invented many new things to Islam which are totally against the Islamic rulings. He has left the path which the majority of Ummah were/are following. He has documented in his Fatawa Rizviah: ¡®One maintaining the doctrine of trinity is not a polytheist (Mushrik)¡±. (Fatawaa Rizviah,vol 1, pg 738) The above mentioned fatwa is against the following verse: Surely, disbelievers are those who said: Allah is the third of the three¡±.
Ahmad Raza Khan Barelvi was one of the inventors of Bid¡¯at (innovations); he has guided many people to the acts that are far away from Suunah paths and that lead to the Hell. All the above mentioned acts that you are doing are of course Bid¡¯ah and innovation in the Islamic Shariah. Read the history of the Prophet¡¯s blessed companions; they were far away from performing such things in their whole life. Our guide must be the Holy Qur'an and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) not Ahmad Raza Khan Barelvi or any other personality. Hence, to be a true Muslim and true follower of our beloved Prophet (saws) you must abstain from such acts which you have been doing till date. May Allah guide us to the right path of Islam.
