)Note: Ihsan Ilahi Zahir is a rabid anti-Sufi who wrote a pernicious book titled al-Barelwiyyain collaboration with the publishers of Matba`at al-Rashid, a Saudi publishing house based inMadina. The book is prefaced by a certain Atiyya Muhammad Salim from Saudi Arabia.Zahir was killed in a terrorist bombing in Pakistan.
1. The claim that the name `Abd al-Mustafa is shirk.
“[Imam] Ahmad Rida Khaan al-Bareilawi [rahimahullah] would refer to himself in many of his works as Abdul Mustafa (Slave of al- Mustafa - a name of the Prophet sal-Allahu 'alayhewa sallam), such a name obviously is not allowed. However, this was not his only expressionof shirk ...”
Reply:
To say that the name `Abd al-Mustafa is an expression of shirk shows a very badopinion of Muslims - an unislamic trait, especially if one means rejection of the yoke of allegiance to the Messenger of Allah wal-`iyadhu billah."Slave of the Prophet" is an unusual but not a forbidden name to bear. It does not signifyworship nor is it an expression of shirk. It refers to a bond of allegiance and respect which isrequired of every Muslim. There are several examples of such names for Sunni Ulema inIslamic history:- Al-Sayyid `Abd al-Nabi ibn al-Sayyid al-Tayyib al-Bilkrami in the book of al-Sayyid Azadal-Bakri titled Ma'athir al-Kiram Tarikh Bilkram as cited in Shaykh Siddiq Hasan Khan al-Qinnawji's Abjad al-`Ulum in his notice on Shaykh Yasin al-Qinnawji.- The late Hafiz of Syria, al-Sayyid `Abd Allah Siraj al-Din al-Halabi (d. March 2002 CE)mentioned in his commentary on al-Bayquniyya in hadith science.- "Al-Imam al-`Allama al-Hujja al-Qudwa al-Fahhama Mufti al-Sadat al-Malikiyya bi-Dimashq" `Abd al-Nabi ibn Jama`a al-Maliki al-Maghribi the student of the Moroccan SufiMujahid and Wali al-Sayyid Abu al-Hasan-Ali ibn Maymun al-Hashimi al-Qurashi al-Tabbasi (d. 917), teacher of Qadi al-Qudat Abul-Khayr Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Qadir ibn Gibril al-Ghazzi al-Maliki, and son of the Shafi`iImam of Masjid al-Aqsa Shaykh Muhyi al-Din `Abd al-Qadir ibn Jama`a al-Maqdisi al-Qadiri (d. 931) as mentioned in their respective biographies in Shadharat al-Dhahab while theauthor of `Ala' al-Din al-Busrawi in his Tarikh describes Shaykh `Abd al-Nabi ibn Jama`a as"one of people of learning and Religion who is trusted" and the author of al-Daris fi Tarikhal-Madaris names him "Shaykh al-Islam `Abd al-Nabi al-Maghribi al-Maliki".
 
- The true Shahid and learned Imam "al-`Allama al-Mutafannin al-Salih al-Shaykh" `Abd al-Nabi al-Sadr Shayda (d. 990) who died strangled in the Sultan's jail on the night of 12 Rabi`al-Awwal - as cited in al-`Aydarusi's al-Nur al-Safir.- The Mufassir, Muhaddith and Usuli Sayyid Muhammad ibn `ABD AL-RASUL IBN `ABDAL-SAYYID ibn Qalandar al-Husayni al-Shafi`i al-Shahrazuri al-Madani (d. 1103/1691).See Mu`jam al-Mu'allifin (3:409 #14044). Sayyid Muhammad is the author of (1) Sadad al-Din wa Sidad al-Dayn on the proofs that the parents of the Prophet are in Paradise; (2) al-Isha`a li Ashrat al-Sa`a (on the preconditions of the Final Hour) in which he stated, "Allahtaught the knowledge of the Hour to the Prophet and forbade him to divulge it due to itsterrible nature and enormous importance." Imam Ahmad Rida quotes this passage of theIsha`a in the Breilly edition of his masterpiece al-Dawla al-Makkiyya fil-Madda al-Ghaybiyya (Breilly p. 378-380.The strange statement that "to name oneself -Abd al-Rasul/al-Nabi or Ghulam al-Rasul/al-Nabi is shirk" originates in the book of Shah Isma`il Dihlawi titled Taqwiyat al-Iman [cf.Darussalam English edition p. 42, p. 54, p. 141]. It is ironic that the preface to the Englishedition of this book is signed precisely by one Ghulam Rasool Mehr, since Ghulam alsomeans slave in Arabic. As for us let us not only say that we are the slave of the Prophet butalso, like Qadi Yusuf al-Nabhani (d. 1350/1931), the slave of his slave as in the followingpoem from his great volume of poetry in praise of the Best of creation titled Sa`adat al-Darayn:1. ana `abdun li sayyid al-anbiya'i wa wala'i lahu al-qadimu wala'iI am the slave of the Master of Prophets And my fealty to him has no beginning.2. ana `abdun li `abdihi wa li `abd al-`abdi `abdun kadha bi ghayri intiha'iI am slave to his slave, and to his slave's slave, And so forth endlessly,3. ana la antahi `anil-qurbi min babi ridahu fi jumlati al-dukhala'iFor I do not cease to approach the door Of his good pleasure among the novices.4. anshuru al-`ilma fi ma`alihi lil-nas wa ashdu bihi ma`a al-shu`ara'iI proclaim among people the teaching of his high attributes, And sing his praises among thepoets.5. fa `asahu yaqulu li anta salmanu wala'i hassanu husni thana'iPerhaps he will tell me: "You are the Salman Of my allegiance, the Hassan of my excellenthomage!"6. wa-biruhi afdi turaba himahu wa-lahu al-fadlu fi qabuli fida'iYes, I would sacrifice my soul for the dust of his sanctuary. His favor should be that heaccept my sacrifice.7. faza man yantami ilayhi wa-la hajata fihi bi-dhalika al-intima'iHe has triumphed who ascribes himself to him - Not that he needs such following,8. huwa fi ghunyatin `an al-khalqi turran wa hum al-kullu `anhu duna ghina'iFor he is not in need of creation at all, While they all need him without exception.
 
 9. wa huwa lillahi wahdihi `abduhu al-khalisu mujalla al-sifati wa al-asma'iHe belongs to Allah alone, Whose purified servant he is, As his attributes and names havemade manifest;10. kullu fadlin fil-khalqi fa huwa min allahi ilayhi wa minhu lil-ashya'iAnd every single favor in creation comes from Allah To him, and from him to everythingelse.Apparently, neither did Ibn Maymun, nor the Imam of Masjid al-Aqsa, nor Qadi al-QudatAbul-Khayr al-Ghazzi, nor Ibn `Imad al-Hanbali, nor al-Busrawi, nor the author of al-Daristhink that Imam `Abd al-Nabi al-Maliki should have changed his name before being allowedto be a Qudwa for Muslims. Apparently, the entire Barzanji family of Sayyid (Ashraaf)Ulema thought well of the name "Slave of the Prophet" and used it from father to son. If onlyall those supposedly stray souls, `Abd al-Nabi Shayda, al-`Aydarusi, al-Sayyid al-Shaykh`Abd Allah Siraj al-Din, and the Qadi Yusuf al-Nabhani (rahimahum Allah) could have metIsma`il Dihlawi and Ihsan Ilahi Zahir, who could have taught them about shirk and realtawhid! Instead, alas, they and all the Sunni Muslims associated with them all over the worlddied in complete ignorance that they were committing or abetting the gravest of all possiblesins.Subhan Allah `amma yasifun. Allah Most High said: { And speak not, concerning that whichyour own tongues qualify (as clean or unclean), the falsehood: "This is lawful, and this isforbidden," so that ye invent a lie against Allah. Lo! those who invent a lie against Allah willnot succeed.}Ibn `Abbas - Allah be well-pleased with him - once said: "Misguidance contains sweetness inthe hearts of those who spread it." This explains the saying of Allah Most High: { Is he, then,to whom the evil of his conduct is made alluring, so that he looks upon it as good, (equal tohim who is rightly-guided)? For Allah leaves to stray whom He wills, and guides whom Hewills} (35:8).When I first posted the above verses of poetry by al-Nabahani, someone posted the followingreaction:NN wrote in a message: “Whenever I see the state of those innovators and sectarians I indeedbecome even more grateful and thankful to Allah(SWT) for His mercy and His guidance andfor saving me from the miserable state of those folks, Allhamddul'Allah.”This person - purportedly a Muslim - accused Shaykh Yusuf al-Nabahani of being aninnovator and a sectarian for saying in his poetry: "I am the slave of the slave of the slave(etc.) of the Messenger of Allah ." Then he thanks Allah for "saving me from the miserablestate of those folks." It is a constant surprise to see the main people of innovation andfanaticism in our time calling traditional Sunni Muslims "innovators" and "sectarians." Butcongratulating themselves for being "saved" from the "miserable state" of a Friend (wali) of Allah, is surely gigantic delusion!{ Say: Shall We inform you who will be the greatest losers by their works? Those whoseeffort goes astray in the life of the world, and yet they reckon that they do good work}(18:103-104).
