Q: MF RAZAUL HAQ OF DARUL ULOOM ZAKARIYYA HAS QUOTED A HADEETH FROM BUKHARI TO PROVE THAT TA’ZIYAH JALSAHS ARE PERMISSIBLE. HE EVEN SAYS THAT HAZRAT ABU BAKR RADHIYALLAHU ANHU RENDERED A SPEECH AT A GATHERING AFTER THE DEMISE OF NABI SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM?
A: Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “Whoever introduces into this Deen which is not part of it, is rejected.”
If the Sahaabah Radhiyallahu Anhum had Ta’ziyah Jalsahs, then why was Ta’ziyat Jalsahs not existent in the Shariah since their time until just very recently. In fact, the title ‘Ta’ziyat Jalsah’ is a newly-invented title.
Furthermore, Hazrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu did not host or participate or organize a Ta’ziyat Jalsah in honour of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Utilizing Hazrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu’s name in defence of a Bid’ah Ta’ziyah Jalsah is slanderous. Only Shias are capable of misusing the great and honourable name of Hazrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu.
The Hadeeth in Bukhari Shareef quoted by deviates does not make even the remotest reference to a Ta’ziyat Jalsah. The Sahaabi informally stood up and praised Allah and merely advised the Sahaabah Radhiyallahu Anhum to adopt Taqwa, make Istighfaar for their Ameer who passed away, etc. There was no Nazm, Qiraat, obituary, Khatam, congregational Dua, etc. Really, one has to be extremely stupid to use this Hadeeth as a basis for the new-fangled Bid’ati Ta’ziyah Jalsahs.
Just as how Moulood is Bid’ah, in the same way, these so-called Ta’ziyah Jalsahs are Bid’ah. The Shariah has a specific Sunnah method of carrying out Ta’ziyah.
The Masnoon Ta’ziyat (Condolence) practice of Islam consists of only a person visiting the home of the bereaved at any time during the first three days of the death, and to offer support, sympathy and encouragement to the bereaved relatives. .
Adding to or decreasing from the Deen anything, is not permissible. The Mufti who has the nerve of quoting Hazrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu’s noble name for a silly Ta’ziyah Jalsah, is behaving like a Shia-Kaafir! Likewise, the quote from Bukhaari has been misinterpreted.
Citing a Hadeeth or the illustrious names of the Sahaabah for a brand new innovated practice is a clear sign of adding to the Deen which is not part of it. By citing a Hadeeth, people start to believe that such innovated acts are part of Deen! Did the Mufti understand Ta’ziyat better than the Sahaabah? The Mufti/Molvi/Sheikh who presents such putrid arguments is behaving like the lost Mawlid/Meelaad/Moulood Bid’atis.
Are you sure that this rubbish Shia-Salafi-type argument has been disgorged from Mufti Razaul Haq? It is difficult to understand that Mufti Razaul Haq would write or blurt out such nonsense. If such Baatil views emerge from Darul Uloom Zakariyya or Mufti Razaul Haq, then at least you understand now why they are from the league of the Bid’ati Ulama-e-Soo.
Since when has Mufti Razaul Haq joined the league of the Bid’atis?
Since when has he joined the camp of the Ulama-e-Soo?
Since when has such a venerable Mufti degraded to such a low-level of the Shias?
Since when has such a Mufti ever become part of the Mudhilleen ilk?
May Allah guide this Mufti Razaul Haq to the right path. Ameen. But such a donkey-shia type so-called Fatwa only appeases the Taqiyah-deviates of this age.
Are people so corrupt that they are incapable of understanding that Ta’ziyah is not a Jalsah. This bid’ah so-called ‘ta’ziyah’ jalsah has absolutely not even a semblance of resemblance with the Masnoon Ta’ziyat act.
When people start quoting the Sahaabah in defence of their Haraam Bid’ah, then they should fear the everlasting consequences…
