VIDEOS AND DIGITAL PICTURES – DAARUL ULOOM DEOBAND’S FATWA

Pictography & Videography of Living Beings or any other Unlawful & Sinful Ways for the Propagation of the Deen Are Not Permissible

BY

DAARUL IFTA-DAARUL ULOOM DEOBAND

Question (Number 166010)

What do the respected Mutiyaan say regarding those individuals who are involved in refuting the firqah baatilah (deviated sects, e.g. Qadiyaanis, Parwezis, Shakeelis, Raafzis, Ghair-Muqallids, etc.) by conveying their message to the people in the form of videos.

Since the masses do not pay much attention to audio forms, the message which needs to be conveyed to the Ummah does not reach them. Therefore, they take the aid of such videos in which animate pictures appear.

Is it permissible to make videos (of living beings) for such purposes?

Answer

In the name of ALLAAH, The Most Merciful, The Ever Merciful

In Islam videography and pictography of humans or any living being are haraam (prohibited/impermissible), along with it being accursed (mal-oon). The Ahaadeeth are replete with severe warnings for pictography. For details please refer to the work of Mufti Shafee’ (rahmatullaahi ‘alaih) titled “Tasweer ke Shar’i Ahkaam”.

Accordingly, in the light of the Fataawaa and explanations of the Akaabir (Senior) ‘Ulamaa of Deoband, the ruling of digital pictures is the same as that of hand-drawn pictures i.e. The Nusoos of the Sharee’ah include both kind of pictures. The Ahlul-ilm (Ulama) are duty-bound to discharge the obligation of Tableegh of the Deen only within the confines and boundaries of the Sharee’ah, not beyond that. In other words for the Tableegh of the Deen the Ahlul-ilm (Ulama) are obliged to use only such methods and ways which are lawful and permissible. The Ahlul-ilm are in executing their obligation of Tableegh are not obliged to utilize any unlawful and sinful ways.

Moreover it is not at all permissible to propagate the Deen by means of unlawful and impermissible ways and methods because by transgressing (violating/breaking) the laws of the Deen it will be the propagation of something other than the Deen. (It will be the propagation of transgression and sin which will bring in its wake deviation thus inviting Divine Wrath – Translator). Likewise the ways of spreading Islam and the ways of spreading kufr (disbelief) and dhalaal (deviation) differ, hence the use of impermissible methods is in completely contradiction of the teachings, ethos and spirit of Islam. It is for this reason that every Jamaa’at (Group) of Ahlul-Haqq since the very first era (of Islam) abstained from using any impermissible (unlawful) ways for the Tableegh of the Deen.

Hence utilising the means of pictography and videography of humans or any living beings for the Tableegh of the Deen will not be permissible. And ALLAH Ta’aala knows best.

Refuting the Deviant Assim al-Hakeem about the Hanafi View of Delaying Salaat al-Fajr

The timing of the morning prayer (fajr) according to the Hanafi school. A certain Jahil “Shaykh” named Assim al-Hakeem said during his program on Huda tv and his disgraced Q&A Site:

“In the Hanafi Madh-hab, they tend to delay the fajr until it is a little bit light before sunrise of course… This is against the majority of the scholars and this is against the sunna of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).”

This “Shaykh” declared the Hanafi practice, in no uncertain terms, as contrary to the Sunnah. But, what evidence do the Hanafis use for this practice?

I checked out the most basic of the Hanafi books such as al-Ikthiar (volume 1 page 44) and I found that the Hanafi scholars based their view on ahadith narrated by al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Al-Tabarani and Imam Ahmad.

If you look at Jami’ al-Tirmidhi, you will see chapter 117 called “Narrations about delaying the fajr until it starts to get lighter ( ﺑﺎﻟﻔﺠﺮ ﺍﺍﻟﺴﻔﺎﺭ ﻓﻲ ﺟﺎﺀ ﻣﺎ ﺑﺎﺏ .“(al-Tirmidhi narrates a hadith (number 154) on the authority of Rabi’ bin Khadeej who said:

“I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say: “Delay the fajr towards the end of its time [when it starts to get lighter] for there is more reward”.

Al-Tirmidhi goes on to say that this hadith was also narrated by Shu’ba and [Sufyaan] al-Thawri from Muhammed bin Ishaaq. It is also narrated by Muhammed bin Ajlaan on the authority of Aasim bin ‘Umar bin Qatada. There are also other ahadith regarding this subject from Abu Barza Al-Aslami, Jaabir and Bilal. al-Tirmidhi said this is a fair and authentic hadith (haadha hadithun hasanun saheeh). 

Imaam Anwar Shah Kashmiri has more to say on this subject in his commentary on Jami’ al-Tirmidhy called “Al-Urf al-Shadhy” on page 177 of volume 1. It can be found here.

In addition, Al-Hafidh al-Suyuti al-Shafi’i included the above hadith of al-Tirmidhi among the mutawatir hadith (unanimously authentic) in his booklet called “Al-Azhaar al-Mutanathira fi al-ahadith al-mutawatira” as was recorded by the author of I’ila al-Sunan volume 2 page 24. His brilliant research can be found here.

In summary, the Hanafi scholars’ point of view is based on multiple narrations (see Nasb al-Raya of Hafidh al-Zaylai volume 1 pages 304-313 for more details.):

1. Hadith of Rabi’ bin Khadeej narrated by al-Tirmidhy. He declared it a fair and authentic hadith (haadha hadithun hasanun saheeh). Al-Hafidh al-Zaylai, Al-Muhaqqiq al-Kamal bin Al-Humaam agreed with al-Tirmidhy. Al-Hafidz Al-Suyuti declared this hadith mutawatir (unanimously authentic).

2. Al-Nasa’i narrated a hadith similar in meaning and he did not comment on its authenticity. Al-Hafidh Al-Zaylai declared the chain authentic (I’ila al-Sunnan volume 2 page 24-25)

Now, how can someone declare a practice based on a mutawatir (unanimously authentic) and a saheeh (authentic) hadith (not to mention the rest of the evidence) to be against the sunnah? Even if the “Shaykh” believes that hadith is not mutawatir but only authentic (saheeh), I still cannot fathom how a “Shaykh” would dismiss all of the above evidence and label the Hanafi practice as “contrary to sunnah.” Just like his teacher, this Shaykh never even bothered to glance over the Hanafi books before he gave his fatwa. One wonders if these people really believe it themselves wholeheartedly when they say they are following the daleel (evidence). How can someone claim they are following the daleel when time and time again we see that they do not collect all the evidence in a given subject before they make up their minds? They are either delusional or dishonest. I cannot think of a third possibility, can you?

Is Islam the Reason the Muslim World Is “Backwards”? Latin America Begs to Differ

By Daniel Haqiqatjou

The perennial question: Why does the Muslim world “lag behind”?

The perennial answer: Because of Islam!

We expect this kind of analysis from the likes of Orientalists, neoconservatives, and Barack Obama. But unfortunately, some Muslims also share such sentiments. From the beginning of the colonial period, self-hating Muslims have agreed with their colonial masters that Islam is the problem and the only way forward is to shed Islam.

Of course, the self-hating Muslims don’t come out and say, “Islam is the problem,” literally. They will, instead, say things like, “Islam needs to reform,” or, “We need to revisit classical fiqh and apply new ijtihad as needed,” or, “Classical scholarship had misogynistic elements.”

This is the not-so-subtle approach of Muslim modernists, who oftentimes will be classically trained themselves and will wear all the trappings of traditional scholars. Not all modernists wear suits and ties, like Adnan Ibrahim.

By wielding religious authority and using religious language, these modernists are better able to influence the average Muslim, who generally has a deep respect for ulama and sacred knowledge. The colonial powers, of course, recognized this and took advantage by deputizing some of these scholars to advocate for European Interests. This dynamic is still used in full force to this day.

Now let’s think more deeply about this question of “lagging behind.”

Who stands to benefit when Muslims view their bad economic position in the world as a function of their own religious tradition?

Well, if that question is too difficult, let’s look at other regions of the world that are lagging behind.

In the news recently is Venezuela.

Why do countries like Venezuela lag behind? According to Western liberal commentators, like the NYTimes and, recently, Donald Trump, the answer is simple:

THAT MR. MADURO [PRESIDENT OF VENEZUELA] MUST GO HAS BEEN OBVIOUS FOR SOME TIME. SINCE HE SUCCEEDED THE LEFTIST STRONGMAN HUGO CHÁVEZ IN 2013, HIS MISMANAGEMENT, CRONYISM AND CORRUPTION, EXACERBATED BY THE DROP IN THE PRICE OF OIL, VENEZUELA’S DOMINANT SOURCE OF REVENUE, HAVE BROUGHT THE COUNTRY TO RUIN. HYPERINFLATION HAS RENDERED WAGES VIRTUALLY WORTHLESS, PEOPLE ARE DYING OF STARVATION AND LACK OF MEDICAL CARE, AND MILLIONS HAVE FLED TO NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES.

See? Western powers only have the best interests of Venezuela’s people at heart. These poor Venezuelans are starving to death! They have no medicine! They’re experiencing hyperinflation! WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING! We have to support “regime change”! Perhaps, we need to invade! That is the only humanitarian option at this point!

Of course, no mention of the fact that the starvation, the lack of medicine, the hyperinflation, etc., are the direct result of years of sanctions on Venezuela. Gee, isn’t it amazing how when you put severe economic sanctions on a country, that country will suffer economically? Then, conveniently, you can blame whatever political faction you want to get rid of for the economic hardship in order to justify supporting a military coup or even a ground invasion. This is the circular reasoning the NYTimes and other Western media outlets trot out without a shred of self-awareness.

Poor Venezuela is not the only victim of this tactic. Many other Latin American countries have been brought to their knees by way of American “humanitarianism.” America, the savior of the world, has to save these backwards countries from their own incompetence. It’s the only way.

TruthDig reports:

A SURVEY OF THE NEW YORK TIMES ARCHIVES SHOWS THE TIMES EDITORIAL BOARD HAS SUPPORTED 10 OUT OF 12 AMERICAN-BACKED COUPS IN LATIN AMERICA, WITH TWO EDITORIALS—THOSE INVOLVING THE 1983 GRENADA INVASION AND THE 2009 HONDURAS COUP—RANGING FROM AMBIGUOUS TO RELUCTANT OPPOSITION.

THE REASON THE CIA AND U.S. MILITARY AND ITS CORPORATE PARTISANS HISTORICALLY TARGET GOVERNMENTS IN LATIN AMERICA IS BECAUSE THOSE GOVERNMENTS ARE HOSTILE TO U.S. CAPITAL AND STRATEGIC INTERESTS, NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE UNDEMOCRATIC. SO WHILE THE POINTS THE TIMES MAKES ABOUT ILLIBERALISM MAY SOMETIMES BE TRUE, THEY’RE MOSTLY A NON SEQUITUR WHEN ANALYZING THE REALITY OF WHAT’S UNFOLDING.

So, in short, this is how America does things. First priority is American economic interests. Who is going to play ball? Who is going to let America and American corporations have their way and enjoy the world’s economic resources for pennies on the dollar? Most countries will quickly open their doors because who doesn’t love America?

But of course, there will always be the troublemakers who just can’t get with the program. So what does America do? Impose crippling sanctions. Brutal sanctions that end up starving the population to death. Who can forget Madeleine Albright saying 500,000 Iraqi children starving to death was “worth it”?

Then, the American media dutifully reports on the human misery and says, “See! These poor people are dying! We have to do something for those poor starving children!”

Of course, the human misery that is suffered due to the tyranny of American-friendly dictators is not commented upon or seen as a reason for action.

So, the Muslim world is not unique in its “backwardness.” Not at all. Many regions outside of North America and Western Europe are economically stunted in the same way. So why does Islam get all the blame? Why does the Islamic tradition and traditional Islamic scholarship get the blame? Why does Muslim male authority get the blame? This makes no sense.

We have to recognize what is really happening. A hostage situation. All these countries have the gun to their heads. After a while, Stockholm Syndrome sets in (i.e., a psychological phenomenon where the hostage starts to feel affection and affinity for the kidnapper).

Whenever someone starts running his mouth about the Muslim world lagging behind and how that is a function of Islam, just point him to all these other non-Muslim countries. What explains their plight? Is it just that a handful of countries in the West figured out the magic formula for not starving to death and wallowing in squalor and the other 90% of the world’s population is utterly clueless? Is that what the NYTimes and Donald Trump want us to believe?

Or is there something else at play?

FLEEING FROM ALL TYPES OF SINS AND GIVING PRACTICAL EXPRESSION TO ILM

By Jamiatul Ulama Gauteng

DEPRIVED OF THE SUPPLICATIONS OF THE ANGELS

Hakeemul Ummah Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi Sahib رحمه الله has mentioned that a severe consequence of disobedience is where one is prevented from having the Malā’ikah (angels) ask for his forgiveness from Allah Ta’ala جل جلاله. It is stated in the Kalaamullāh:

“Those who bear the Arsh, and those around it proclaim the praise of their Lord, and believe in Him, and they ask forgiveness for those who believe; ‘O Lord, You embrace everything in mercy and knowledge. Therefore forgive those who have repented, and follow Your way, and guard them against the torment of Hell.'” [Surah Al-Mu’min: 8]

Hazrat Thaanwi رحمه الله has stressed that we notice how clearly this verse states that the Malā’ikah (angels) ask forgiveness of their Lord for the Muslims who follow the way laid out for them by Allah Ta’ala جل جلاله the Most High. How will it be possible for the one who refuses to travel that way to receive this blessing?

Can we really afford to be deprived? May Allah Ta’ala جل جلاله guide us towards submission and save us from obstinacy.

THE SALF-E-SAALIHEEN

The Salf-e-Saaliheen did not restrict themselves to academic discourses. They would derive practical benefit from the Qur’aan and Ahaadith. On the other hand, those of later times indulged more in academic exposition of theories. For example, according to the Hadith, Allah Ta’ala descends to the first heaven in the last portion of the night. On the basis of this Hadith the Salf-e-Saaliheen engaged more in worship during this time of the night. They did not indulge in theoretical discussion regarding this Hadith. They were not concerned with the manner of Divine Descent. They did not ask: ‘Since Allah is not a physical body, how does he descend?’ They were not concerned with theories and abstract  arguments.

SILENCE IS NO EXCUSE

Hakeemul Ummah Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi Sahib رحمه الله has mentioned that some people are outwardly pious, practising on virtuous deeds and abstaining from sins. However, despite their piety, they associate with the transgressors and participate in their acts of disobedience. They feebly justify their stance with the argument of trying to avoid disunity with family and friends.

There are others who do not participate in acts of transgression but do not have a detestation for the evil acts which they observe. They live together with the disobedient people in the manner of dissolved sugar (as sugar dissolves in water). They do not abstain from the evil of the transgressors nor do they express any detestation for the violations of Shariah.

For people of piety and learning, to maintain silence in the face of transgression is sinful because they do not object to the commission of sins.

 

Hafiz Mohamed Morsi (May Allah have Mercy on Him)

[By brother Shibli Zaman]

Mohamed Morsi, the first democratically elected leader of Egypt who was unjustly deposed by the treacherous Abdul Fattah al-Sisi at the behest of Sisi’s masters in Israel, has died. He had a court appearance in which he was allowed to address the court. As far as I know, what he said has not been released. Approximately 20 minutes into that address, he collapsed, falling into a coma, and died shortly thereafter.

Human Rights groups had been alerting the international community about the abhorrent conditions of Morsi’s imprisonment. Neither his diabetes nor his liver disease were being treated, and falling into a coma and dying is very indicative of insulin related shock resulting in death. They knew that they were killing him slowly and painfully. In spite of the protest of various international human rights groups, Sisi didn’t even shown an ounce of mercy towards the very man who put his slimey hide in power to begin with. Crispin Blunt, chairman of the committee stated clearly in 2018:
“The denial of basic medical treatment to which he is entitled could lead to his premature death.”

It is widely held among Muslim jurists that the one who dies while unjustly imprisoned is one of the types of Shuhadā’ (martyrs). In the Compendium of Islamic Law and Jurisprudence (al-Mawsū`at al-Fiqhīyyah) compiled by Kuwait’s Ministry of Endowments, it states:

( ﺫﻫﺐ ﺍﻟﻔﻘﻬﺎﺀ ﺇﻟﻰ ﺃﻥ ﻟﻠﻈﻠﻢ ﺃﺛﺮﺍً ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﺤﻜﻢ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺘﻮﻝ ﺑﺄﻧﻪ ﺷﻬﻴﺪ ، ﻭﻳُﻘﺼﺪ ﺑﻪ ﻏﻴﺮ ﺷﻬﻴﺪ ﺍﻟﻤﻌﺮﻛﺔ ﻣﻊ ﺍﻟﻜﻔﺎﺭ ، ﻭﻣِﻦ ﺻﻮَﺭ ﺍﻟﻘﺘﻞ ﻇﻠﻤﺎً : ﻗﺘﻴﻞ ﺍﻟﻠﺼﻮﺹ ، ﻭﺍﻟﺒﻐﺎﺓ ، ﻭﻗﻄَّﺎﻉ ﺍﻟﻄﺮﻕ ، ﺃﻭ ﻣَﻦ ﻗُﺘﻞ ﻣﺪﺍﻓﻌﺎً ﻋﻦ ﻧﻔﺴﻪ ، ﺃﻭ ﻣﺎﻟﻪ ، ﺃﻭ ﺩﻣﻪ ، ﺃﻭ ﺩِﻳﻨﻪ ، ﺃﻭ ﺃﻫﻠﻪ ، ﺃﻭ ﺍﻟﻤﺴﻠﻤﻴﻦ ، ﺃﻭ ﺃﻫﻞ ﺍﻟﺬﻣﺔ ، ﺃﻭ ﻣَﻦ ﻗﺘﻞ ﺩﻭﻥ ﻣﻈﻠﻤﺔ ، ﺃﻭ ﻣﺎﺕ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﺴﺠﻦ ﻭﻗﺪ ﺣﺒﺲ ﻇﻠﻤﺎً)

“The jurists have determined that injustice (resulting in death) is a reason for which the deceased is deemed a Shahīd (martyr), but this is not the same as the Shahīd who is killed fighting the disbelievers. And the types of killing resulting from injustice are: One who is killed by thieves, or renegades, or bandits, or one who is killed defending himself, or his property, or his blood, or his religion, or his family, or the Muslims at large, or the Ahl al-Dhimma (Non-Muslim law abiding citizens), or one who is killed opposing injustice, or one who dies in prison while having been incarcerated unjustly.”

Unlike the Shahīd who is killed in combat, this type of Shahīd is given the full funerary rites such as the washing, shrouding, and prayer. While not equal to the Shahīd who has given their life in active duty, their status before God will be that of a martyr, nonetheless.

Now I want to address the Egyptians who so vehemently supported Sisi’s Israeli ordered coup against Morsi and then suddenly went completely silent after it became clear that Sisi was just a slave of America and Israel. Morsi had only been president for one year when you decided he wasn’t good enough. Sisi has been in power for 5 years now: HOW HAS YOUR COUNTRY IMPROVED? It has NOT. It has DECLINED, and the only change that has happened is that your country is now a partner with Saudi Arabia and the UAE in being the guard dogs of Israel, while imprisoning and executing devout Muslims and Muslim scholars in their respective countries. WHERE IS YOUR REVOLUTION NOW? WHY ARE YOU SILENT NOW?! (See “Sisi isn’t Mubarak. He’s much worse” https://
foreignpolicy.com/2018/12/19/sisi-isnt-mubarak-hes-much-worse/ )

Many of you to whom this is an address, I love dearly. You know I do. You are among my dearest and closest friends. But what you also know is that Shibli will burn his own house down if it means standing up for the truth. So I will not spare you a harsh address in this regard. Because, you will face a harsher address from God on the Day of Judgement. May God forgive you and save you from that. Amin.

To the rest of the Muslims:
We have suffered the yoke of post-colonial tyrants who have been installed by Western powers for 100 years now. We will NEVER get out of it so long as you continue being so unstrategic and just plain STUPID. You have the majority of tyrants ruling over the Muslim world committing all kinds of hedonism and immorality, with their billions stored away in Swiss bank accounts, their gaudy mansions which could house an entire town, their yachts which could host an entire city dotted with women “hired” for illicit purposes (often victims of human trafficking), their ridiculous purchases like MbS’ purchase of a painting of Jesus for nearly half a BILLION US dollars, and that painting turned out being a forgery!

In light of that very REAL scenario we are in, when you are being roused to complain about a leader who is generally good but has some flaws and has made some mistakes, KNOW THAT YOU ARE BEING PUPPETEERED! How can you complain about a head of state who is, for the most part, good but makes the occasional lapse while you say nothing about the overwhelming majority of other Muslim leaders whose flagrant debauchery is undisputed? And it is no coincidence that these leaders whom you are rallied against just HAPPEN to be antagonistic towards Israel and in every single case advocate for more Islam in society. Take the one Muslim ruler in history whom you revere the most and, I promise you, he will not survive the scrutiny and standards you placed on Mohamed Morsi. I challenge you to name a single one who could.

No matter WHAT complaints you had about Mohamed Morsi, NONE of them come even remotely close to ills found in the leaders you either wave flags for or remain silent about. Mohamed Morsi died addressing tyrants. I’ve seen no one fulfill this Hadith more in my entire life:

( ﺃَﻓْﻀَﻞُ ﺍﻟْﺠِﻬَﺎﺩِ ﻛَﻠِﻤَﺔُ ﻋَﺪْﻝٍ ﻋِﻨْﺪَ ﺳُﻠْﻄَﺎﻥٍ ﺟَﺎﺋِﺮٍ ﺃَﻭْ ﺃَﻣِﻴﺮٍ ﺟَﺎﺋِﺮٍ )
“The best of Jihads is to speak out for justice against an unjust ruler, or an unjust authority.”

He died literally in the middle of BEING that Hadith. May God elevate Mohamed Morsi into His Jannah without any delay or judgement and grant him the honorable status of Shahīd. Amin.

No Possibility of Error in Hanafi Fiqh

Al-Khatib al-Baghdadi (392–463) narrates in Tarikh Baghdad: Al-Khallal informed me: ‘Ali ibn ‘Amr al-Hariri informed me that ‘Ali ibn Muhammad al-Nakha‘i narrated to them: Najih ibn Ibrahim narrated to us: Ibn Karamah narrated to us:

We were with Waki‘ [ibn al-Jarrah, one of the teachers of Imam Ash-Shafi’i] (126–196) one day and a man said: “Abu Hanifah erred!” Waki‘ said: “How can Abu Hanifah err when with him are the likes of Abu Yusuf (113–182) and Zufar (110–158) in their logic;

and the likes of Yahya ibn Abi Za’idah (120–182), Hafs ibn Ghiyath (117–194), Hibban (111–171) and Mindal (103–169) in their memorisation of hadith;

and the like of al-Qasim ibn Ma‘n (100–175) in his knowledge of language and Arabic;

and Dawud al-Ta’i (105-162) and Fudayl ibn ‘Iyad (107–187) in their asceticism and their scrupulousness?

The one whose sitting partners are such, he does not come close to erring, because if he erred they would correct him.”

Ulama-e-Soo’ – The Helpers of Iblees

[By Mujlisul Ulama]

Every age has its breed of ulama-e-soo’ who are among the worst enemies of Islam and the staunchest assistants of Iblees. Commenting on the ulama-e-soo’ of his era, Hadhrat Mujaddid Alf-e-Thaani (Rahmatullahi Alayh) said:

“The entire world is drowned in the ocean of bid’ah. They are deriving comfort in the darknesses of bid’ah. Who has the courage (in this day) to oppose bid’ah and to criticize it? The majority of the ulama of this age are the promoters of bid’ah and the eliminators of the Sunnah.

A relative saw in a dream the accursed shaitaan sitting comfortably and confidently. He was in total readiness to deceive and mislead. This relative asked shaitaan the reason for his composure and confidence. Shaitaan Laeen responded: “The ulama of this age are adequately aiding me. They have set me free from this onerous task (of deceiving and misleading).”

In reality all the deeni lethargy and weakness/ corruption which are conspicuous in the Ummah in this age, are the effects of the corruption of the ulama-e-soo’ and the corruption of their motives.……….

Since these deceits and frauds have as their objective their personal desires, they attempt to entrap the masses. The masses generally become trapped by such worshippers of lust.

They rarely gain the opportunity of linking up with genuine and honest Men of Allah.” (End of Hadhrat Mujaddid’s comment)

In our present era this self-same scenario of fraudster molvis and crank khaanqah sheikhs prevails. The ocean of bid’ah has vastly increased. Molvis and sheikhs who profess to be ‘deobandi’ are the ulama-e-soo’ who innovate bid’ah and mislead the ignorant masses. They have polluted the entire Ummah with their bid’ah. They have become adept in presenting new acts of bid’ah which they adorn with deeni colours. Then they present stupid shaitaani-inspired arguments to vindicate their bid’ah. All of them are the agents of Iblees.
