Barailwiyyah, History and Aqeedah
Chapter 2: Barailwee Aqaaid (Part 2 of 2)
www.TheRighteousPath.com Page 3Analyze another fictional passage from another one of the Imaams of al-
Barailwiyyah. He says, It is permissible to say Yaa Ali or Yaa Gauth because
the beloved slaves of Allaah listen in their Barzakh (grave).
Jenab Ahmad Raza Barailwee holds this belief that death does not descend upon
the prophets and Awliyaa but they are buried alive. Their life in the grave is
much better and superior than their life in this world. Jenab Barailwee says
regarding the prophets, The life of the prophets alahimus salaatu wasalaam
actually is a worldly perception. It is only for the confirmation of Divine promisethat for an instant only death transpires on them. Then life is restoredimmediately to them and on this life are the same worldy rulings. Theirbelongings (which they leave behind) should not to be distributed and marriage isforbidden for their wives, rather there is no Iddah
upon them. They eat and
drink in their graves as well as pray.
Another Barailwee says, The prophets begin praying in their graves after aperiod of forty days.
The prophets are alive in their graves. They walk (in their graves). They pray andtalk and solve (or interfere in) the matters of the creation.
Committing an insult upon the Prophet, they have written in their books thatwhen his companions buried him sallallaahu alaihi wasallam, he sallallaahu
alaihi wasallam was alive. Accordingly Jenab Barailwee writes, When the Hazoor
sallallaahu alaihi wasallam was being lowered in his blessed grave he was saying
My people, my people
One of the Barailwees devotees says, When the blessed soul of the Hazoor
sallallaahu alaihi wasallam was being captured, even then there was life in his
Listen further, Our scholars have said that there is no difference between the life
and death of Hazoor sallallaahu alaihi wasallam. He sees his Ummah and heknows their conditions, intentions, objectives, and the condition of their hearts.
This is completely clear to him, and there is no hindrance in it.
