All Praise is due to Allah . Peace and Blessings be upon His Beloved Prophet ],
his noble Family and the illustrious Companions.
None can be a perfect Muslim with out the love for Allah’s  Beloved Prophet
], his Companions and ‘Ahl ul Bayt’ i.e. the Family of the Prophet ]. This
valuable book, ‘The Superiority of Sayyids’ is the translation of ‘Al Kalam al
Maqbul fi Taharati Nasab al Rasool’ which was compiled by the eminent scholar
of ‘Ahl us Sunnah wal Jamah’, Hazrat Allama Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan Naeemi. He
is a prolific author of many books related to the Belief and Creed of ‘Ahl us
Sunnah wal Jamah’. All his books are marked with the authenticity of the content
and deep love for the Beloved Prophet ].
The topic of this book is the Superiority of the ‘Ahl ul Bayt’ as well as their
progeny who are called as ‘Sayyid’. There are many verses of the Holy Quran and
the traditions of the Prophet ] which emphasize their Superiority over the rest
of the Muslims. The author has proved their excellence through many narrations
and proofs.
This book has been translated by the respected, Basharath Ali Siddiqui Quadri
Ashrafi. Prior to this, he has already translated more than 47 other important
books of numerous scholars. I have personally gone through the whole
translation of this book and have found it to be good and lucid.
May Allah  reward him for this effort and make this book a source of
Guidance for one and all.

P PP PUBLISHER'S PREFACE UBLISHER'S PREFACE UBLISHER'S PREFACE UBLISHER'S PREFACE
All Praise belongs to the All Powerful Lord-Allah Almighty  and Peace,
Blessings and Salutations be upon the Beloved of Allah - Muhammad
Mustafa ] and upon his Noble Progeny.

We, as Muslims know that Allah Almighty  bestowed upon our Prophet
- Muhammad ] numerous ‘Khasayis’ {Peculiarities and Specialities} and
‘Mu’jizat’ {Miracles} unfound in any of His former Prophets. Among these
uncountable ‘Khasayis’ and ‘Mu’jizat’ is the continuation of the Progeny of
the Beloved Rasul-Allah ] through his noble and youngest daughter
Sayyidah Fatimah Zahra % and her sons Sayyiduna Imam Hasan ‘ and
Sayyiduna Imam Husayn ‘. This continuance of Progeny through one's
daughter is unique to the Beloved Prophet of Islam ] only and is
considered as one of his Miracles {‘Mu’jizah’}.
Amir ul Mu’minin Sayyiduna Umar bin Khattab ‘ narrated that the
Beloved Rasul Allah ] said:

“Every genealogical lineage {‘Sababin wa Nasabin’} will get terminated
{‘Munqatiun’} on the Day of Judgement {‘Qiyamah’} except my genealogical
lineage {‘Sababi wa Nasabi’}. Every son is attributed to his father except the
children of Fatimah, for I am their father <in attribution> and also their
genealogical lineage.” {Musannaf Abdur Razzakh, Sunan al Kubra Bayhaqi & Mu’jam
ul Awsat, Mu’jam ul Kabir of Imam Tibrani}
Through out Islamic history, Muhaddithin have mentioned numerous
Hadiths on the Merits of ‘Ahl ul Bayt’ in their Hadith collections under the
chapters, ‘Kitab ul Fazail’ or ‘Kitab ul Manaqib’. While some Scholars
authored books specially dedicated to the merits of the respected Sayyids
such as ‘Al Ilm uz Zahir fi Nafai’ Nasab it Tahir’ by the great Hanafi Jurist
Imam Sayyid Ibn Abidin Shami, ‘Ihya al Mayyit fi Fazail al Ahl ul Bayt’ by
Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti, ‘Irath ul Adab li Fazil un Nasab’ & ‘Az Zahr al
Basim fi Hurmat iz Zakat ala Bani Hashim’ by Imam al Akbar Ahmad Raza
Khan Quadri Bareilvi and the exceptionally excellent ‘Al Sharf ul Mawbad
li Aali Muhammad ]’ by Imam Yusuf bin Ismail Nabhani Shafai'.

But the merits, greatness, superiority, nobility and genealogy of the Sayyids
or ‘Ahl ul Bayt’ has also become one of the most debatable points between
the ‘Ahl us Sunnah wal Jamah’ and numerous other astray sects of Islam in
recent times, most importantly the most deviant ‘Wahhabiya’ and its
numerous by-products of the past century such as the ‘Salafiya’ {Ahle
Hadith}, ‘Deobandiya’ and ‘Jamat al Islami’. These sects deny the immense
merits of the present day Sayyids or ‘Ahl ul Bayt’ which is based upon their
noble genealogical lineage and consider only piety as the criteria for one's
greatness, superiority and nobility.
‘Al Kalam ul Maqbul fi Taharati Nasab al Rasul’ was written by one of the
greatest ‘Mufassirin’ {Exegators of Quran} and ‘Muhaddithin’ {Hadith Masters}
of the Indian subcontinent - Ashraf ul Mufassirin Hakeem ul Ummat
Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan Ashrafi Nayimi in answer to a Questionnaire sent
by some people. It was later published in the compendium of his epistles
‘Rasail e Nayimiya’. Despite its brevity and conciseness, the book answers
and clarifies all the major doubts on the subject in the Light of numerous
Quranic Ayahs, Authentic Hadiths and numerous other logical evidences.
We are thankful to Shaykh Allama Sayyid Alamgir Ashraf Ashrafi Jilani
who first turned our attention towards the translation of this excellent
book. We are also extremely thankful to Shaykh ul Hadith Mufti Raza ul
Haq Ashrafi Misbahi, former Shaykh ul Hadith and former Chief Mufti of
Jamiya Ashraf, Kichocha, India and the Khalifa of Sarkar e Kalan Sayyid
Mukhtar Ashraf Ashrafi Jilani Kichochavi who explained and clarified
some points in this book.
Along with the Translation, we have provided 19 highly informative Foot-
Notes in order to clarify the subject. All Hadiths have also been referenced,
giving priority to the ‘Sihah Sittah’ {The famous Six Authentic Hadith books}.
Though maximum care has been taken in proof reading the Translated
text, still due to human traits, the appearance of mistakes can not be
denied. Therefore, all mistakes and defects are that of the Translator and
the great Author is free from all such defects.
The ‘Ahl us Sunnah Research Foundation’, is trying to its best to Translate
and Publish essential ‘Ahl us Sunnah’ Literature both on the topics of
‘Aqayid’ {Beliefs and Doctrines} as well as ‘A’mal’ {Practices}. So far the
Institute has Translated 47 books of ‘Ahl us Sunnah’ Scholars on various
topics, among which 16 have been published. Hope this Translation too
meets the hopes of our readers.
May Allah Almighty  accept our sincere endeavours in Translating and
Publishing this book and make it as a Means of our Salvation through the
noble ‘Wasila’ of the Beloved Muhammad Rasul Allah ]!

Al Kalam ul Mabul fi Taharat Al Kalam ul Mabul fi Taharat Al Kalam ul Mabul fi Taharat Al Kalam ul Mabul fi Taharati ii i Nasab al Nasab al Nasab al Nasab al Rasul Rasul Rasul Rasul
What do the Scholars of Religion say in this matter that:
‘Zayd’ says: “All Genealogies and Families are equal in Islam, none is
Superior {‘Afzal’} to other. Therefore, ‘Sayyid’, ‘Pathan’, ’Tayli’, Barbers
{‘Nai’}, Launderer {‘Dhobi’} are all equal in status. Superiority {‘Fazilat’} is
only based upon Piety {‘Taqwa’} and not upon Genealogy {‘Nasab’}.”
He also says: “One’s Pious Forefathers will be of no use <i.e. will not benefit in
the Here After {‘Akhirah’}>, and that only Good Deeds {‘A’mal’} will be of use.”
‘Zayd’ presents this Ayah:

“O people! We have created you from one man and one woman and made
you in branches and tribes that you may recognize one another.
Undoubtedly, the most respected among you in the sight of Allah is one
who is more pious; Verily, Allah is Knowing, Aware.”
{Surah al Hujarat; 49: 13}
Apart from this, the Prophet ] also said:

“O Fatimah! I can not ward off the Punishment of Allah Almighty  from
you!”

. Based on the Hadiths of Sahih Muslim, Kitab ul Iman; See Footnote # 12 for details on
this Hadith.
‘Amr’ says that: “It is not as said above and ‘Sayyids’ are Superior than all
Families and the Good Deeds of the Forefathers do benefit the children.”
Do say whose Statement {‘Qawl’- Position} is Correct.
Answer so that you may be rewarded!
Answer Answer Answer Answer
In both matters, the statement of ‘Amr’ is correct and the statement of
‘Zayd’ wrong and spurious {‘Batil’}.
The Genealogy of respected Sa’adat {plural of Sayyid} is Greater {‘A’la’} and
Superior {‘Afzal’} than all other genealogies and the Good Deeds of the Pious
from among the Faithful {‘Mu’minin’} will Insha-Allah {Allah Willing} will be of
use to their children <i.e. benefit them>.
Both these matters are proven and established from the Ayahs of the Holy
Quran, Authentic Hadiths {‘Ahadith us Sahiha’} and Logical evidences, etc.
They are as follows:

“And those who Believed and whose offspring followed them with Faith.
We joined them with their offspring and diminished not anything from
their deeds. All men are pledged in their deeds.”
{Surah at Tur; 52: 21}
Therefore, the Faithful {‘Mu’min} Progeny of the Prophet ] will be ‘Insha
Allah’ with the Prophet ] on the Day of Judgement {‘Qiyamah’}. From this
the greatness of the genealogy of the respected ‘Sa’daat’ is proved and we
also come to know the benefits of the Good Deeds of the Forefathers on the
next generations.

“.......... Say you (O Prophet), ‘I ask not from you any wage for it <Inviting to Islam>
except Loving my kinship (dear ones)..................”
{Surah al Shoora; 42: 23}

One of the Exegations {‘Tafsir’} of this Ayah is that: “Due to my Right {‘Haq’}
upon you, love my dear ones {‘Ahl e Qarabat’}."
We come to know that the respected ‘Sa’daat’ who are the dear ones and
the progeny of the Prophet ], are to be compulsorily loved for the sake of
the Prophet ]. It is not so regarding other families!

“And know that whatever war booty you take, One-Fifth of it belongs
exclusively to Allah and to the Messenger and to his dear ones and the
orphans and the needy and the poor.”
{Surah al Anfal; 8: 41}
From this Ayah, we come to know that during the Lifetime of the Prophet
], the dear ones {‘Ahl e Qarabat’} of the Prophet ] used to have separate and
permanent share in the 1/5
th
of the war booty. Where as, according to
Imam Shafai’, the Sayyids are entitled to a share in the 1/5
th
<of war booty>
even in present times! Such dignity and respect is not so for other families.

“As for that wall, it belonged to the two orphan children of the city and
underneath it was their treasure and their father was a pious man; then
your Lord desired that those two should reach their maturity and bring
forth their treasure as a Mercy from your Lord.....”
{Surah al Kahaf; 18: 82}
From this Ayah, we come to know that Allah Almighty  had Mercy upon
those two orphans because their father was a pious man! We also come to
know that the Good Deeds of the pious do benefit their children and the
Good Deeds of the Prophet ] will certainly benefit the respected ‘Sa’daat’.

{Surah al Ankabut; 29: 27}
That is, after Sayyiduna Ibrahim 6, all the Prophets were from his
progeny only and all Holy Books and Scriptures {‘Sahifay’} were also
revealed upon them. They were bestowed with such greatness only
because they were from Sayyiduna Ibrahim’s 6 Progeny. Therefore, their
genealogy is Noble {‘Ashraf’}!

“O offspring of Yaqub (Bani Israil)! Recall My that favour which I bestowed
upon you and exalted you over the whole world in your time.”
{Surah al Baqarah; 2: 47, 122}
From this Ayah, we come to know that the genealogy of Sayyiduna Ya’qub
6 is so great {‘A’la’} that Allah Almighty  had made his family superior
in status to all other families. Then, certainly today, the Sa’adat who are the
family of the Prophet ] are far more superior family than all the other
families in the world.

. Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan Ashrafi states in ‘Tafsir al Nayimi’, in the Tafsir of this Ayah as
follows: “We come to know some important points from this Ayah; (1) That genealogical
greatness is also a Favor {‘Ni’mah’} of Allah as the Bani Israil are being reminded of
‘Ihsan’ on being the progeny of Prophets. Certainly, a pious Sayyid or a scholarly Sayyid
will be more meritorious and superior {‘Afzal’} than other pious and scholarly people
because they are the progeny of the Prophet ]. In a similar way, a sinful Sayyid will be
better than other sinful person in this aspect as he is from the progeny of the Prophet ].
In fact, the truth is that a sinful Sayyid is also better than other pious people in terms of
genealogical aspects. Imam Shami mentioned a Hadith in ‘Shami’ Vol: 1 in the discussion
of Funeral Prayers {‘Salat ul Janazah’} that the Beloved Prophet ] said: “With death all
genealogical relations will get terminated {‘Mutaqatiu’}, except my genealogical
relations.” And he (Imam Shami) says that from the Ayah: “Then when the Trumpet will
be blown, there will be no relationships among them, nor will they ask for one
another.”{Mu’minun; 23: 101}, the genealogy of the Prophet ] is exempted and in a
similar way the saying of the Prophet ] to his relatives: “O my dear ones, I cannot ward
off the punishment of Allah from you.” {Sahih Muslim, Kitab ul Iman} "La ughni ankum

“And when Musa said to his people: ‘O my people! Remember the favours
of Allah upon you that He made amongst you Messengers and made you
Kings, and gave you that which He gave not this day to any one in all the
worlds.’”
{Surah al Maidah; 5: 20}
From this Ayah, we come to know that the coming of a Prophet from
among a particular nation or community is Allah Almighty’s  special
favour from which other nations or communities are deprived off.
Therefore, the coming of the Prophet ] among the respected ‘Sa’adat’ is

minal Allahi min shaiyin" (Yusuf: 67)” means that without the Will of Allah {‘Izn il
Allah’} I cannot ward off the punishment of Allah from you. Then Allama Shami says,
‘How is this possible that the Prophet ] can not ward off the punishment from his
progeny though he will Intercede for other people and save them from punishment and
would bring them back <from Hell>. Imam Shami wrote a complete monologue on the
merits of the respected Sayyids titled: “Al Ilm uz Zahir fi Nafai’ Nasab it Tahir”. Infact, my
‘Iman’ says that a sinful Sayyid is like pearl engulfed with mire, though he is in the mire
of sins but still is a Sayyid. (2) That all greatness and respect remains due to Iman. There is
no respect for the one without ‘Iman’ near the Lord Almighty because the Bani Israil were
not left away <from the invitation of ‘Iman’> due to their being the progeny of Prophets
but they were also invited to accept Iman. ‘Kan’an’ was the son of a Prophet but due to
lack of ‘Iman’ was destroyed. Similarly, the Apostates {‘Murtad’} from ‘Shiya’, ‘Mirzai’
and ‘Deobandi’ are not even Muslims leave alone their being Sayyids. Saying/ Regarding
them Sayyids is also wrong. ‘Iman’ is a condition for being a Sayyid. Note that lack of
Iman didn’t give respect to Bani Israil <even though of their great genealogy>. {Tafsir al
Nayimi, 1:355-356}
Allah Almighty’s  special favour which other genealogies and
communities do not possess.

“O wives of the Prophet! You are not like other women if you adopt
Piety........”
{Surah al Ahzab; 33: 32}
From this Ayah, we come to know that the Pious wives of the Prophet ]
are far more superior {‘Afzal’} than all the pious wives in this world because
they are the wives of the Prophet ]. Therefore, the pious ‘Sa’adat’ are far
more superior than other pious people because they belong to the
genealogy of the Prophet ].

“........ .O Members of the Family of the Prophet! That He may remove from
you every uncleanness and purify you well.”
{Surah al Ahzab; 33: 33}
From this Ayah, we come to know that the Ahle Bayt, be it the Pure Noble
Wives {‘Azwaj ul Mutahharat’} or the Pure Progeny {‘Awlad ul Athar’}; Allah
Almighty  has made them pure because they are from the family of the
Prophet ]. Other genealogies are not worthy of this special purity.
Otherwise, what else could have been the speciality of the ‘Sa’adat’?
<Except this that they are from the family of the Prophet ]>

{Surah al Baqarah; 2: 128}
We come to know from this Supplication {‘Dua’}, that, all the Sayyids can
never go astray. All other Islamic genealogical communities can go astray
completely. From this, we come to know that the genealogy and family of
Sayyiduna Ibrahim 6 is greater {‘A’la’} and superior {‘Afzal’} as they have
Sayyiduna Ibrahim’s 6 supplication.

“I swear by this city! (O Prophet) You are dwelling in this city. And by your
Father and his Progeny.”
{Surah al Balad; 90: 1-3}
One of the ‘Tafsirs’ of this Ayah is as follows:
‘Father’ refers to the Sayyid of the Worlds – the Prophet ] and ‘Children’
refers to the pure children of the Prophet ]. From this, we come to know
that the city of the Prophet ] is more superior and meritorious than all
cities and the pure progeny of the Prophet ] is greater {‘A’la’} than all
other families as Allah Almighty  took an Oath of them. And it is
possible that ‘Father’ refers to Sayyiduna Abdullah ‘ and the Lady
Sayyidah Amina % and ‘Children’ refers to the Prophet ]. <and his
progeny>

The Noble Hadiths The Noble Hadiths The Noble Hadiths The Noble Hadiths
There are numerous Hadiths on this subject. In some Hadiths, it is said
that: “Fatima is the ‘Sayyidah’ {Leader or Chief} of the Women in Paradise.”
3 33 3


While in other Hadiths, it is said: “Hasan and Husayn are the ‘Sayyids’
{Leaders or Chief} of the youth in Paradise.”
4 44 4
. .. ...... Etc.

3
. There are approximately 6 Hadiths in various Hadith Books regarding Sayyidah
Fatimah Zahra % being the ‘Sayyidata Nisa i Ahl il Jannah’ or ‘Sayyidata Nisa il
Mu’minin’ or ‘Sayyidata Nisa i Hazih al Ummah’. We are presenting a Two Hadiths and
references of the rest 4 Hadiths.
(i) Umm ul Mu’minin Sayyidah Ayesha % narrated in a long Hadith that the Beloved
Rasul Allah ] said: “.......O Fatimah! Are you not pleased that you are the Chief of all
Women in Paradise {‘Sayyidata Nisa i Ahl il Jannah’} or Chief of all Believing Women
{‘Sayyidata Nisa il Mu’minin’}? On this I <Sayyidah Fatimah> began to smile profusely.”
{Sahih Bukhari, Kitab ul Manaqib}
(ii) Umm ul Mu’minin Sayyidah Ayesha % narrated in along Hadith that the Beloved
Rasul Allah ] said: “......O Fatimah! Are you not pleased that you are the Chief of all
Believing Women {‘Sayyidata Nisa il Mu’minin’} or Chief of all the Women of this Nation
<Ummah> {‘Sayyidata Nisa i Hazih al Ummah’}?” {Sahih Bukhari, Kitab ul Isti’zan}
(iii) Jami’ Tirmizi, Abwab ul Manaqib as narrated by Sayyiduna Huzayfah ‘. (iv) Sunan
Nisai, Kitab Fazail us Sahaba as narrated by Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas ‘. (v) Nisai in
Sunan al Kubra as narrated by Sayyidah Ayesha %. (vi) Imam Bukhari mentions in Tarikh
al Kabir as narrated by Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah ‘. >>>
We are therefore presenting here only some Hadiths for the purpose of
deriving blessings {‘Barakah’}.
Hadith 1 Hadith 1 Hadith 1 Hadith 1: :: : <Sayyiduna Wathila bin al Asqa ‘ narrated: “I heard Rasul Allah ] as
saying>: “Verily Allah  granted eminence to Kinana from amongst the
descendents of <Sayyiduna> Ismail {6} and He granted eminence to
Quraysh amongst Kinana and He granted eminence to Banu Hashim
amongst Quraysh and He granted me <i.e. the Beloved Rasul Allah ]>
eminence amongst the Banu Hashim.” {Sahih Muslim <Kitab ul Fazail>, Jami’ Tirmizi
and Mishkat ul Masabih <Bab Fazail Sayyid il Mursalin>}

We come to know from this Hadith that the above mentioned tribes are
superior and eminent than all other tribes.
Hadith 2 Hadith 2 Hadith 2 Hadith 2: :: : <Sayyiduna Zayd bin Arqam ‘ narrated that> The Beloved Rasul Allah
] said: “I am leaving among you two weighty things: One being the Book
of Allah {‘Kitab Allah’} in which there is right guidance {‘Huda’} and light
{‘Nur’}, so hold fast to the Book of Allah  and adhere to it.” He exhorted
<us to hold fast> to the Book of Allah  and then said: “The second being the

4
. There are primarily 2 Hadiths in various Hadith Books regarding Sayyiduna Hasan ‘
and Sayyiduna Husayn ‘ being the ‘Sayyida Shababi Ahl il Jannah’ {Chief of All Young
Men in Paradise}. They are as follows:
(i) Sayyiduna Abu Saeed Khudri ‘ narrated that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said: “Hasan
and Husayn are the Chiefs of Youth in Paradise.” {Jami’ Tirmizi, Abwab ul Manaqib}
(ii) Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah ‘ narrated that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said: “An Angel
in the Heavens never visited me before, so he took permission from Allah Almighty to visit
me and gave me this glad tiding that Hasan and Husayn are The Chiefs of all Youth in
Paradise {‘Sayyida Shababi Ahl il Jannah’}.” {Imam Nasai mentioned it in Sunan al Kubra
and Imam Tibrani in al Mu’jam ul Awsat}
members of my household {Ahl ul Bayt}. I remind you to fear <of your duties>
to the members of my household.” {Sahih Muslim, Kitab Fazail us Sahaba}
From this Hadith, we come to know that the greatness {‘Azmat’} of the
family of the Prophet ] and that the pure progeny of the Prophet ] is like
that of the Holy Quran <in Guidance>. As, to believe in the Holy Quran is
compulsory for having Faith {‘Iman’}, so is to believe in the orders of the
‘Ahl ul Bayt’ of the Prophet ] important. Where is such eminence {‘Sharf’}
for other families?
Hadith 3 Hadith 3 Hadith 3 Hadith 3: :: : Imam Tirmizi narrated from Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas ‘
<that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said>: “Love me for the sake of Allah’s love and
love my Ahl ul Bayt for the sake of my love <for them>!” {Jami’ Tirmizi, Abwab ul
Manaqib}
Hadith Hadith Hadith Hadith 4 44 4: :: : Imam Ahmad <bin Hanbal> narrated from Sayyiduna Abu Zar
Ghifari ‘ <that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said>: “The example of my Ahl ul
Bayt is like the ship of <Sayyiduna> Nuh {6}, the one who boards it has
gained salvation and the one who remained aloof will be ruined.” {Musnad
Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal and Mu’jam ul Kabir of Imam Tabrani}
Hadith 5 Hadith 5 Hadith 5 Hadith 5: :: : Imam Tirmizi narrated from Sayyiduna Zayd bin Arqam ‘ <that
the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said>: “I am leaving amongst you that which if you
hold on to it, you shall never go Astray, one of them greater than the other:
Allah’s Book- a rope extended down from the Heaven to the Earth and my
Mantle {‘Itra’} - the People of my House. These two shall never part ways
until they come to me at the Pond {‘Kawthar’}. Look well to how you act with
them after me.” {Jami’ Tirmizi, Abwab ul Manaqib}
5 55 5


5
. There are approximately over 340 Hadiths on the Merits {‘Fazail’} of ‘Ahl ul Bayt’ in
the books of Hadith! We are presenting here one more such Hadith>>>

Hadith 6 Hadith 6 Hadith 6 Hadith 6: :: : Imam Muslim narrated from Sayyiduna Abdul Muttalib bin
Rabiya ‘ that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said: “Verily, these Sadaqat are
the impurities of people and they are not permissible for Muhammad and
the progeny of Muhammad.” {Sahih Muslim, Kitab uz Zakat}
Hadith 7 Hadith 7 Hadith 7 Hadith 7: :: : It is narrated in ‘Radd ul Mukhtar’, V: 1 in the Chapter of
‘Bathing the Dead body’ with reference to the Hadith that <Sayyiduna Umar
bin Khattab ‘ narrated that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said>: “On the Day of
‘Qiyamah’ {Judgement} all genealogical and bridal (in Laws) relations will get
terminated (broken) {‘Muntaqatiu’} except my genealogical and bridal
relations." {Mustadrak al Hakim}
Then it is stated that: “Sayyiduna Umar ‘ married Sayyidah Umm ul
Kulthum % bint Sayyidah Fatimah Zahra % on the basis of this Hadith so
that he may become an ‘In Law’ of Sayyiduna Ali ‘ in genealogical

(i) Sayyiduna Jabir bin Abdullah ‘ said: “I saw Allah’s Messenger in his Pilgrimage on
the Day of Arafah as he mounted on his Camel- al Qaswa addressing the people and I
heard him say: “O People! I have left among you that which if you hold on to it you shall
never go Astray: Allah’s Book and my Mantle {Itra} - the People of my House.” {Jami’
Tirmizi, Abwab ul Manaqib}
It is important to note that the Ahl ul Bayt also include the Wives of the Beloved
RasulAllah ]- The Ummahat ul Mu’minin {Mothers of the Believers} mainly in the light
of this Ayah: “And Remain in your houses and be not unveiled like that of unveiling of the
former days of ignorance, and establish prayer and pay-due (Zakat) and obey the
commands of Allah and His Messenger. Allah only desires, O! The members of the family
of Prophet! That He may remove from you every uncleanness and purify you well after
cleaning you thoroughly.” {Surah al Ahzab; 33: 33}

then, how is it possible that

6
. Sayyiduna Umar bin Khattab ‘ married Sayyidah Umm Kulthum % {6-49 A.H}, the
daughter of Sayyidah Fatimah % & Sayyiduna Ali ‘ in 17
th
Hijri. Sayyiduna Umar ‘
said to Sayyiduna Ali ‘: “Marry her to me for I swear I have toward her more dedication
to excellent companionship than any man on the face of the earth!” He gave her a ‘Mehr’
{Marital Dowry} of 40,000 Dirhams just in honour of her lineage to the Beloved Rasul-
Allah ]! They had a son known as Sayyiduna Umar Zayd al Akbar ‘, also known as Ibn
al Khalifatayn {i.e. the Son of the Two Khalifas; i.e. Sayyiduna Umar ‘ and Sayyiduna Ali
‘} and a daughter Sayyidah Ruqayya %. Sayyiduna Zayd al Akbar ‘ died at a very
young age in the Khilafah of Sayyiduna Amir Muawiya ‘. Sayyidah Umm Kulthum %
died in 49 A.H; Sayyiduna Saeed bin al ‘Aas bin Saeed ‘ or Sayyiduna Abdullah bin
Umar ‘ led her funeral prayers. For details one may read or refer the following famous
History books: Tabaqat Ibn Sa’ad (8:337-340 & 8:463-464); Imam Bukhari’s, Tarikh al-

mainly because they are the family of the Prophet ].

book on Intercession {‘Shafa’at’} titled ‘Assama’ ul Arbayin fi Shafa’ati Sayyid ul

present in ‘Al Ataya un Nabviya fi Fatawa ur Razviya’, V: 29, Raza Foundation.

. (i) Imam Sayyid Muhammad Amin Ibn Abidin Shami says that Imam Ahmad bin
Hanbal, <Imam> Bayhaqi and <Imam> Hakim have narrated with an Authentic Chain
{‘Sahih Sanad’} from Sayyiduna Abu Saeed ‘ that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said
standing on the pulpit {‘Mimbar’}: “What kind of people are those who say that the
Prophet of Allah can not even help his relatives on the Day of Judgement. Remember! I
will benefit them both in this world {‘Dunya’} and the world Here-after {‘Akhirah’}.”
{Rasail Ibn Abidin Shami, 1:5, Suhayl Academy}
(ii) Imam Shami states that <Imam> Tibrani in his ‘Mu’jam’ narrates through an
Authentic Chain {‘Sahih Sanad’} from Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas ‘ that the Beloved
Rasul Allah ] said to Sayyidah Fatimah %: “Allah Almighty will not punish you or your
progeny.” {Rasail Ibn Abidin Shami, 1:5, Suhayl Academy}
(iii) Imam Shami further mentions that <Imam> Tibrani, <Imam> Darqutni and the
compiler of ‘Kitab ul Firdaws’ <i.e. Imam Dailmi> narrated from Sayyiduna Abdullah bin
Umar ‘ that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said: “I will Intercede first for my Ahl ul Bayt on
the Day of Judgment, then for those who were near them, then for the Ansar <i.e. the
people of Madinah>…….” {Rasail Ibn Abidin Shami, 1:5, Suhayl Academy}
It is not only the ‘Ahl ul Bayt’ who will receive Intercession but also those who profusely
love them as mentioned in the Hadith as follows:
(iv) Sayyiduna Ali bin Abu Talib ‘ narrated that the Beloved RasulAllah ] said: “My
Intercession will be for that follower {‘Ummati’} of mine who loves my Ahl ul Bayt.”
{Kanz ul Ummal; V: 14; H# 39057}
{Kafirs} follow the Infidels {Kafirs} amongst them.......” {Sahih Bukhari, Kitab Fazail

said>: “The authority of ruling shall remain among the Quraysh, even if
only two of them remained.” {Sahih Bukhari, Kitab Fazail wa Manaqib un Nabi was
Sahaba}
From these Hadiths, we come to know that all Muslims are under the
ruling of Quraysh and Muslim Khilafat is only for the Quraysh!

All Muslims can accept ‘Zakah’ {‘Annual Poor-Due} and ‘Sadaqahs’ {‘Charity’}

Kitab uz Zakat}. If their genealogy was also like other genealogies, then like
others, it would have been permissible for them to accept ‘Zakah’. From
this, we come to know that this respected genealogy is highly pure, clean
and superior {‘A’la’} than other genealogies.

The Sa’adat also have this eminence and nobility {‘Sharf’} that in ‘Durud
Ibrahim’ offered in the ‘Salah’, Durud is also sent upon them along with
the Prophet ]! “O Allah send Greetings and Blessings on the Master
Muhammad and on the Progeny of Master Muhammad” (Allah Humma Salli
Ala’ Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Ala’ Ali Sayyidina Muhammadin). Pathan,
Shaykh, etc genealogies have not been included in the Durud except this
family <of the Prophet>. Take it in this way that the respect and reverence of
this family is included in the ‘Salah’! Therefore, we come to know that this
family is superior than all other families.
Proof 4 Proof 4 Proof 4 Proof 4
Sayyiduna Talha ‘ <bin Ubayd Allah> drank the Blood of the Prophet ] out
of fear of showing disrespect to it. So, the Prophet ] said: “Now, there will
be no aches in your stomach! And Allah Almighty  will protect you from
the Hellfire!” When the reaching of the Prophet’s ] Blood in one's
stomach has so much effect then what can be said of the Greatness {‘Azmat’}
of those <i.e. the Sayyids> whose body is from the Blood of the Prophet ]?

The Prophet ] is the Leader of all Prophets. In this way, all the things

The city of the Prophet ] is more meritorious than all the cities of other

the progeny of the Prophet ] should be more meritorious and superior

them more meritorious and superior than all other things and his own

“O people! We have created you from one man and one woman and made
you in branches and tribes that you may recognize one another.

The meaning of this Ayah is not what ‘Zayd’ understood, that is, in Islam;
the progeny of the Prophet ] has no precedence or superiority over other
progenies. If this had been the meaning of this Ayah then it would be
against all those Ayahs which have been presented in the previous pages.
Therefore, the meaning of this Ayah is that, ‘All Muslims are respectful
irrespective of the tribe to which they belong. Do not think any Islamic
tribe as dishonourable or disgraceful {‘Zaleel’} as was the custom among the
Arabs <in pre- Islamic times> that they used to consider some tribes as
despicable or contemptible {‘Hakheer’} and dishonourable or disgraceful
{‘Zaleel’}. Therefore, no tribe among the Muslims is dishonourable or
disgraceful. Though, some are meritorious {‘Afzal’} than others. Allah
Almighty  says:

“....The Honour is for Allah and His Messenger and Mu’minin (Believers) ....”
{Surah al Munafiqun; 63: 8}
In this Ayah, all Muslims are included. With out any doubt, you can
understand it in this way that, ‘All Prophets are Respectful and even the
smallest disrespect of any of them is Infidelity {‘Kufr’}. But, some Prophets
are more meritorious than the others.’ Or in this way that, ‘No one should
abandon piety {‘Taqwa’} due to genealogical superiority. Rather, it should be
kept in mind that higher the piety, higher is the status of one before Allah
Almighty . People with higher genealogies should have higher piety. Or
the meaning of this Ayah may be that, one tribe or family should not taunt
another tribe or family nor should think another Muslim as menial or base
- born {‘Kameen’} nor should make fun of another Muslim due to his tribe or
family. It is compulsory {‘Wajib’} to respect and revere every Muslim. The
exegation {‘Tafsir’} of the above Ayah is this Ayah of the Holy Quran...........

“O Believers! Let not the men scoff at the men, perchance they may be

a Muslim, and those who do not repent, they are the unjust.”
{Surah al Hujarat; 49: 11}
Due the superiority of one’s family it does not become necessary that the
other families become dishonoured or disgraced {‘Zaleel’}. Therefore, the
respected ‘Sa’adat’ do not have any right to consider other Muslims as
despicable or contemptible {‘Hakheer’} and dishonourable or disgraceful
{‘Zaleel’} because respect of every Muslim is compulsory. Similarly, other
Muslims should respect and revere the ‘Sa’adat’ as they are the family of
the Prophet ]; the Prophet ] who taught us the ‘Kalima’ and bestowed us
with Faith {‘Iman’} and the Holy Quran!

“Never will your relatives or your children benefit you on the Day of
Judgement.........”
{Surah al Mumtahina; 60: 3}
From this Ayah, we come to know that on the Day of Judgement {‘Qiyamah’},
neither genealogy will benefit nor children. The word ‘Arhamukum’ and
‘Awladukum’ includes all relatives and children whether they are of the
Prophets or the Friends of Allah {‘Awliya Allah’}.

This Ayah addresses those Muslims whose relatives and children were
Infidels {‘Kafirs’} and <those Muslims> who due to their relations with
them {‘Kafirs’} used to support them. In this Ayah, it is said to such Muslims
that: Do not support their relatives who are Infidels in comparison to
Islam!
Therefore, this Ayah does not have any connection with the relatives and
righteous children of the respected Prophets because Allah Almighty 
starts this same Paragraph {‘Ruku’} with this Ayah:

{Surah al Mumtahina; 60: 1}
And this paragraph of the Holy Quran was revealed for Sayyiduna Hatib

used to spy for the Infidels of Makkah and send them in writing the secrets
of Muslims as his children were with the Infidels in Makkah. It is in the

Muslims of the incident of Sayyiduna Ibrahim 6 who for the sake of
Islam had completely terminated his relationship with his people who

This Ayah informs about the terror and fear {‘Dahshat’} on the Day of
Judgement and the confusion and chaos {‘Afra Tafri’} at the time of its
starting when there will appear the Justice of the Lord {‘Adal Ilahi’}. One's
love and help for one's progeny and dear ones would come to an end.
Everyone will look after themselves only and no one will think about
others. The details of this condition are presented by Allah Almighty  at

“On that Day man will flee from his brother; and from his mother and his

one anxiety that is enough for him.”
{Surah al Abasa; 80: 34-37}
This Ayah does not negate the merits and greatness of some genealogies.
In-fact, the greatness of genealogies is another thing and the terror and
fear on the Day of Judgement is a different thing. At the start of the Day of
Judgement, even the other great Prophets will also deny Intercession
{‘Shafa’at’}, and except our Rasul Allah ] no one would dare to speak before
Allah Almighty . So, from this Fear of Allah Almighty , does it become
necessary that these Prophets of Allah ] have no merits or greatness?
Certainly not! And also remember that the terror and fear on the Day of
Judgement would be for common Muslims. Some special people or
bondsmen of Allah Almighty  would be free from such terror and fear.

It is in the Hadith that every one are from the children of Sayyiduna Adam
6 and Sayyiduna Adam 6 was created from dust. Therefore, we come
to know that all are equal in genealogies and none has any merit over the
other!
Ans Ans Ans Answer wer wer wer
The meaning of this Hadith is that, no tribe should consider another tribe
or family as dishonourable and disgraceful or bad as the origin of every
man is mud. And as dust or mud represents Humility and lowliness and
due to these characteristics, it produces fruits and flowers, gardens and
farms. Whereas, fire represents Pride and Arrogance, therefore, it produces
nothing <i.e. it destroys> and has no such benefit.
This Hadith certainly does not mean that one genealogy does not have
Merit over another genealogy, but in fact this Hadith points out that some
genealogies are meritorious than other genealogies as the origin of all
human race is mud and some dust or mud are meritorious than other
mud. The mud of Madinah Munawwarah is meritorious than the mud of
other places. The mud or dust of Mosque {‘Masjid’} is meritorious than the
mud of market places. The mud or dust which flew from the hoofs of
Sayyiduna Jibrail’s 6 Horse is meritorious and better than the dust which
flew due to the hoofs of Pharaoh’s {‘Firaon’s’} horse.
11 11 11 11
The mud of a fertile
land is better than the mud of infertile land as nothing grows in it!
Similarly, the mud or dust of people from the genealogies which have
connection with the Prophets is more meritorious and better than the mud
or dust of people of other genealogies.
It should be noted that mud or dust has the following two characteristics:
i. It always falls towards the earth when it is thrown in the air by some
one or is carried into the air due to some other reasons {such as Winds and
Storms}.
ii. Mud or dust is always in need of water so that Fruits and Flowers may
be grown in it.
Similarly, every Human being due to natural inherent causes falls towards
lowliness, though sometimes due to the blessings of those who are near to
Allah Almighty , one also becomes exalted and receives blessings {‘Fayz’}
from Allah Almighty . The respected ‘Sa’adat’ donot have this greatness
due to their own personal beings, but in fact they are great because the
connection and affiliation {‘Nisbah’} of the Prophet ] has made them
exalted.

. Imam Muslim mentions this Hadith in Kitab ul Iman, the Chapter: ‘Bab Bayani Anna

Qarabatul Muqarribina’ i.e. ‘The one who died in Infidelity {‘Kufr’} will be in Hell-fire,
the Intersession of his dear ones and their relationships will not benefit.’
There are three Hadiths in this Chapter in which Sayyidah Fatimah % is being addressed
while in other Hadiths various other people, clans and tribes are also being addressed.
The three Hadiths in which Sayyidah Fatimah is being addressed are as follows,
(i) Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah ‘ narrated that when this Ayah was revealed “And <O
Prophet> warn your nearest Kinsmen (relatives).”{Surah ash Shu’ara; 26: 214} the
Beloved Rasul Allah ] gathered the notables and common people of Quraysh and said:
“O the family members of Ka’ab bin Luwai! Safe yourselves from Hell, O the family
members of Murrah bin Ka’ab! Safe yourselves from Hell, O the family members of Abdi
Shams! Safe yourselves from Hell, O the family members of Abdi Manaf! Safe yourselves
from Hell, O Banu Hashim! Safe yourselves from Hell, O Bani Abdul Muttalib! Safe
yourselves from Hell, O Fatima! Safe yourself from Hell, because I am not a Master of any
of Allah Almighty’s things by myself, except that I am your relative and I will soon benefit
you with this relationship.”
(ii) Umm ul Mu’minin Sayyidah Ayesha Siddiqa % narrated that when this Ayah was
revealed, “And <O Prophet> warn your nearest Kinsmen (relatives).”{Surah ash Shu’ara,
26: 214}, the Beloved RasulAllah ] climbed the hill of Safa and said: “O Fatima bint
Muhammad! O Safiya bint Abdul Muttalib! O the children of Abdul Muttalib! I am not a
master capable of warding off the punishment of Allah from you. But, you may take
anything from my wealth as you like.”
(iii) Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah ‘ narrated that when this Ayah was revealed, “And <O
Prophet> warn your nearest Kinsmen (relatives).”{Surah ash Shu’ara, 26: 214}, the
Beloved Rasul Allah ] said: “O the people of Quraysh! Sell yourselves to Allah. I cannot
ward off any thing <i.e. punishment> coming from Allah from you. O Abbas bin Abdul
Muttalib! I cannot ward off any punishment of Allah from you. O Safiya- the aunt of
RasulAllah! I cannot ward off any punishment of Allah from you. O Fatima bint
Muhammad! Take anything as you like from me, but, I cannot ward off any punishment
of Allah from you.”
We come to know from this Hadith that the relation of Rasul Allah ] does
not even benefit his own daughter. Then how would it benefit other
Sayyids? The state of Prophet’s ] genealogy is same as is the state of other
genealogies.
Answer Answer Answer Answer
This Hadith belongs to the early period of propagation of Islam. The
Prophet ] is commanding them to bring Faith {‘Iman’}. The objective is to
say:
“O Fatimah! Accept ‘Iman’, if you do not accept ‘Iman’ then all this
genealogical relationship will not benefit.”

. This saying of Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan Ashrafi is based on Imam Muslim naming the
Chapter in Sahih Muslim as follows: ‘Bab Bayani Anna man Maata alal Kufri Fahuwa fil
Nar wala Tanaluhu Shafa’atun wala Tanfa’uhu Qarabatul Muqarribina’ i.e. ‘The one who
died in Infidelity {‘Kufr’} will be in Hell-fire, the Intersession of his dear ones and their
relationships will not benefit.’
If one reads, one can clearly notice that this Hadith belongs to the earlier period of Islam
and was said so as to warn the Quraysh to accept Islam and Faith {‘Iman’} and do not be
contended with this that they are the relatives of the Prophet ] and belong to his tribe.
The Beloved RasulAllah ] said these words standing on the Hill of Safa in Makkah, thus
indicating it was during the earlier period of propagation! And the Ayah of the Holy
Quran is also Makkan which commands the Prophet ] to warn his kinsmen.
Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan Ashrafi writes in ‘Tafsir al Nayimi’: “All the Ayahs and Hadiths
pertaining to the refusal of Intercession by the Beloved RasulAllah ] refer to ‘Kuffar’
<and for those in the state of ‘Kufr’>. Sayyidah Fatimah Zahra % is also being warned of
the same thing that: ‘If you do not accept ‘Iman’, then your Intercession will not occur.’
Therefore, in many Ayahs by revealing ‘Illa’, they have been exempted <by Allah
Almighty>!” {Tafsir al Nayimi; 1: 366}
The person who is from the genealogy or the family of the Prophet ], but
is not a Believer {‘Mu’min’}, then they are not Sayyids because they are not
Muslims at all. < in the first place>

cannot be a Sayyid. Because,

14
. Mirzai: This sect is also called as 'Qadiyani' and are named after Mirza Ghulam
Ahmad Qadiyani who claimed to be a Revivalist {'Mujaddid'} in 1884 C.E, then opposed
the life of Sayyiduna Isa and claimed himself to be 'Masih' in 1308 A.H/ 1891 C.E and
then finally declared his Prophethood in 1318 A.H/ 1901 C.E and was therefore declared
an Infidel {'Kafir'} by the scholars of Ahl us Sunnah of the Arab world and the Indian
subcontinent in numerous books, the first and the most important of which are 'Hussam
ul Haramayn' of Imam Ahmad Raza Khan and 'As Sawarim ul Hindiya' of Shaykh
Hashmat Ali Khan Lukhnavi.
15
. Rafzi: This sect is also known as the 'Shiya' and is one of the most ancient sects of Islam
having come into existence during the era of Amir ul Mu'minin Sayyiduna Ali bin Abu
Talib ‘. This sect exalts the status of Sayyiduna Ali bin Abu Talib ‘ much beyond
permissible limits. They are themselves branched into several sub-sects among which
some declare Sayyiduna Ali as the 1st Khalifa and declare the majority of the Sahaba of
the Beloved Prophet ] as Infidels, while some raise Sayyiduna Ali ‘ to the rank of
Prophethood and while some to the rank of Allah Almighty!
16
. Chakdalvi: This sect is also famously known as the 'Ahl ul Quran' and was founded by
Mawlvi Abdullah Chakdalvi. The main characteristic of this sect is that they balantly deny
the Hadiths and hold that Hadiths are the basis of differences among the Muslims. They

advocate that the Holy Quran is enough for one's salvation and there is no need of
Hadiths in Islam for Muslims. They are the most recent sect to have come into existence
from the Wahhabiya or Ahl ul Hadith. It can be said that they are the most advance
version of 'Ahl ul Hadith' in astrayness!
17
. Wahhabi: The most Notorious and Dangerous of the present day astray Sects are the
present day ‘Khawarij’ more commonly known as the ‘Wahhabiya Najdiya’ founded by
Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab Najdi {1111-1207 A.H/1699-1792 C.E} upon the
Principles of ‘Khawarij’, Shaykh Taquiuddin Ahmad Ibn Taymiya and Shaykh Ibn Qayyim
Jawzi. The ‘Wahhabiya’ movement came into Limelight in 1143 A.H / 1730 C.E and took
50 years to spread in the Arabian Peninsula with the help of Muhammad bin Saud {the
ancestor of the present Wahhabi Saudi dynasty of Saudi Arabia}. In India, this Astray Sect
was brought from ‘Najd’ by Shah Ismail Dehlavi {1193-1246 A.H/1780-1833 C.E} who
wrote the Heretical book named ‘Taqwiyat ul Iman’<1240 A.H/1817 C.E>. Thereafter,
the ‘Wahhabiya’ got divided into Two prominent Sects on the Basis of ‘Fiqh’ as
‘Wahhabiya - Muqallidin’ <Those who Practiced ‘Taqlid’ of one of the Four Imams of
Fiqh, mostly of Imam Abu Hanifa in India or of Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal in Najd, Saudi
Arabia> and ‘Wahhabiya - Ghayr Muqallidin’ <Those who rejected ‘Taqlid’ of any one of
the Four Imams and derived their own rulings according to their whims>. These both
Sects of 'Wahhabiya' remained firmly Unified in their 'Aqayid' {Beliefs and Doctrines}
and have only differences in 'Fiqh' {Jurispudence}. The 'Wahhabiya - Muqallidin' were
also known as 'Wahhabiya-Ishaqiya' while the 'Wahhabiya - Ghayr Muqallidin' were
known as 'Wahhabiya-Ismailiya' after their respective chief Scholars i.e Shah Ishaq
Dehlavi and Shah Ismail Dehlavi. The 'Wahhabiya- Muqallidin or Ishaqiya' are today
known as 'Deobandiya or Tablighi Jamat' after their Chief Centre of learning 'Deoband'
and the 'Tablighi Jamat' is its chief operating arm. The 'Wahhabiya- Ghayr Muqallidin'
later named them-selves as 'Ahle Hadith' to avoid Muslim wrath and ban! Nowadays,
these same 'Wahhabiya- Ghayr Muqallidin' or 'Ahle Hadith' have again changed their
name into 'Salafiya' to avoid the wrath and ban of 'Ahl us Sunnah wal Jamah' and
Muslims all over the world. These 'Wahhabiya' Sects frequently change their names and
disguises. The notorious 'Deobandiya' or 'Tablighi Jamat' is difficult to identify as they
freely mingle with the Muslim population and practice 'Taqlid' as do the mainstream
Muslims or 'Ahl us Sunnah wal Jamah'. Therefore, the common people find it hard to
identify them as some of their 'Outward' Practices such as 'Salah' and 'Sawm' are similar to
for being a Sayyid, Faith and Belief {‘Iman’} are compulsory and these astray
people are away from it.
Due to Infidelity {‘Kufr’} all genealogical relations break away. Therefore,
an Infidel {‘Kafir’} cannot marry a Believer {‘Mu’min’}, cannot inherit a
Believer’s wealth and cannot be buried in the graveyard of Believers
{‘Mu’minin’}. When the Infidel children will not inherit the wealth of a
Muslim father, then, how is it possible that they can inherit the
genealogical Nobility and Greatness of their father?
Abu Lahab
18 18 18 18
belongs to the ‘Bani Hashim’, but he does not have any
nobility. Therefore, only those respected Sayyids who are Believers
{‘Mu’min’} will benefit from the noble genealogy of the Prophet ]. All
Muslims will benefit due to their relation {‘Nisbat’} with the Prophet ] in
such a way that those who will be destined for Hell will instead go to
Heaven and the Sinful will be pardoned or forgiven. When affiliation or
relation or connection {‘Nisbat’} with the Prophet ] which is Spiritual can

'Ahl us Sunnah wal Jamah'! But, these 'Deobandiya' hold the 'Aqayid' of 'Wahhabiya' and
trace their scholarly ancestry and history to 'Khawarij', Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab
Najdi and Shah Ismail Dehlavi. Apart from these old 'Wahhabi' Sects, some new Heretical
groups have emerged from them such as the famous 'Jamat Islami' of Syed Abul Ala
Mawdudi, the 'Naychariya' {Naturalists} of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan and Mawlvi Shibli
Numani, the 'Nadviya' from 'Nadvat ul Ulama', the 'Ahle Quran' or 'Chakdralviya', the
'Tanzim e Islami' of Mawlvi Israr Ahmad and the most recent being the ‘Ghamidiya’ of
Mawlvi Javed Ahmad Ghamidi. In-fact, there are more than 20 such sub-sects
originating from the ‘ ‘‘ ‘Wahhabiya’ {Khawarij’}!!!
18
. Abu Lahab was the paternal uncle of the Prophet ] and belonged to ‘Bani Hashim’
which is the noblest tribe of the Quraysh. He used to taunt and rebuke the Prophet ] and
died as an Infidel. It is in his rebuttal that Allah Almighty revealed Surah Lahab (S # 111).
benefit then why not Genealogical relation {‘Nasab’} which is both Physical
(through Blood-ties) and Spiritual?

“And Allah is not One to chastise them, till (O Prophet) you are in their midst.
And Allah is not to chastise them, whilst they are begging forgiveness.”

<Sayyiduna Anas bin Malik ‘ narrated that> The Beloved Master ] himself
says: “My Intercession is for the Major Sinners of my Nation {‘Ummah’}.”

The Ayahs and Hadiths on Intercession {‘Shafa’at’} are numerous from which
we come to know that every person who dies with Faith {‘Iman’} will
certainly become worthy of the Prophet’s ] Intercession.
Therefore, the Progeny of the Prophet ] will certainly benefit from special
Intercession {‘Shafa’at’} of the Prophet ].

Epilogue and Important Guidance Epilogue and Important Guidance Epilogue and Important Guidance Epilogue and Important Guidance
The following are some important points and special guidelines regarding
the respected ‘Sa’adat’.
First Guideline First Guideline First Guideline First Guideline: :: : The progeny of Sayyiduna Ali bin Abu Talib ‘ who were
born from the Chief-Lady of the Paradise - Sayyidah Fatimah Zahra % are
known as Sayyid. The children of Sayyiduna Ali ‘ from his other wives
are known as ‘Alavi’ and not Sayyids; for example Sayyiduna Muhammad
bin Hanafiya ‘, etc. All these Merits are for that progeny which is from
the Lady of Paradise - Sayyidah Fatimah Zahra % because these people are
only included in the Progeny of the Prophet ] <through her fourth daughter
Sayyidah Fatimah Zahra %>.
Second Guideli Second Guideli Second Guideli Second Guideline ne ne ne: :: : The Progeny of the Prophet ] is addressed as Sayyids
because of two reasons:
i. Because the Prophet ] said regarding his two grandsons ‘Hasnayn’ as
follows:
“Hasan and Husayn are Sayyids {Leaders} of the Youth in Paradise.” {Jami’
Tirmizi, Abwab ul Manaqib}
That is, they are the Chief of all those who die and enter Paradise in
their youth. The Prophet ] also said regarding Sayyiduna Imam Hasan
‘ as follows:

“This son of mine is Sayyid {Leader}, Allah Almighty  will unite two
groups of Muslims through him.” {Jami' Tirmizi, Abwab ul Manaqib}
As these grandsons were referred as ‘Sayyid’ by the Prophet ], therefore
their progeny is also referred as ‘Sayyids’.
ii. Because the meaning of ‘Sayyid’ is Leader and the honorary Title of the
Prophet ] is ‘Sayyid ul Mursalin’ {Leader of the Messengers}, the ‘Sa’adat’ are
his progeny therefore, the progeny of the Leader of the Messengers -
Muhammad ] are also called as the Leaders of Muslims. ‘Subhan
Allah!’ The Beloved Prophet ] is the ‘Sayyid’ {Leader} of the Prophets,
Sayyiduna Ali bin Abu Talib ‘ is the ‘Sayyid’ of ‘Awliya Allah’ {Friends of
Allah}, Sayyidah Fatimah Zahra % is the ‘Sayyidah’ of Muslim Women,
and the respected ‘Hasnayn’ are the ‘Sayyids’ of Martyrs <or of Youth in
Paradise>. We can say, Leadership and Chieftainship is very much in love
with this family!
Allah Almighty  says regarding Sayyiduna Yahya 6 that:

“Then the Angels called him, and he was offering Prayer standing at his
place of Prayer, no doubt Allah gives you Glad tidings of Yahya who shall
confirm a word from Allah, and be a Chief and he will always avoid
women, and be a Prophet from amongst Our righteous.”
{Surah Al Imran; 3: 39}
This is to say that the Beloveds of Allah  are referred as ‘Sayyid’ by Allah
Almighty  and by the Prophet of Allah .

Third Guideline Third Guideline Third Guideline Third Guideline: :: : ‘Sayyids’ are those whose father is a ‘Sayyid’. If the
mother is ‘Sayyid’ and the father is a Non- ‘Sayyid’, then the children are
not ‘Sayyids’ and nor will the commandments {‘Ahkam’} meant for ‘Sayyids’
will be applicable upon them.
Accepting ‘Zakah’ {Annual Obligatory Poor dues} is also allowed for them
because genealogy runs paternally and not maternally. If the father is
‘Sayyid’ and the mother is a Non- ‘Sayyid’, then the children are ‘Sayyids’
and if both the parents are ‘Sayyids’ then the children are ‘Najeeb ut
Tarafayn Sayyids’ {Sayyid through Both Lineages} just as Sayyiduna Ghawth al
Saqlayn’s father was ‘Hasani Sayyid’ and mother was ‘Husayni Sayyidah’.
Sayyiduna Imam Mahdi ‘ will also be ‘Hasani Sayyid’. In present times,
‘Hasani Sayyids’ are very few and ‘Husayni Sayyids’ are more in number
but both have to be compulsorily and equally respected.
Fourth Guideline Fourth Guideline Fourth Guideline Fourth Guideline: :: : The merits of ‘Sayyids’ which have been presented in the
previous lines does does does doesnot not not not mean that they are free not to practice any good
deeds or are free not to offer any ‘Salah’ {Obligatory Prayers} and that just on
the basis of their Family’s nobility, they are allowed to be away from good
deeds! Such thinking is extremely wrong and absolutely spurious {‘Batil’}.
<i.e. they are not free and are accountable for their mis-deeds>
The respected ‘Sa’adat’ should do more good deeds so that they become
role models for the general public. <It is as> A First class passenger has to
spend more money than a Third class passenger. It is compulsory for the
‘Sa’adat’ to become exemplary models of their noble predecessors. Imam
Husayn ‘ offered ‘Salah’ under the shadow of swords <as in the Battle of
Karbala> and if his own progeny abandons ‘Salahs’ without any reason then
it is a sad occurrence.
Fifth Guideline Fifth Guideline Fifth Guideline Fifth Guideline: :: : All the merits which have been presented in the previous
lines are only for those who are Genuine and Genealogically correct {‘Sahih
ul Nasab’} ‘Sayyids’ and no Non- ‘Sayyid’ has been in their genealogical
chain from Sayyidah Fatimah Zahra % to their fathers! In present times
many duplicate ‘Sayyids’ have emerged, they are not ‘Sayyids’ yet call
themselves ‘Sayyids’. This is extremely Prohibited {‘Haram’} and is a great
sin. The Beloved Prophet ] has cursed those slaves who attribute their
ownership to other than their correct owners and has also cursed those
who attribute themselves to other than their correct and original Families.
The one who is not a ‘Sayyid’ but pretends to be one is also worthy of this
curse of the Beloved Prophet ]. Such people also abuse their mothers
indirectly because she actually married a Non- ‘Sayyid’ and they falsely
and indirectly makes a ‘Sayyid’ as their mother’s husband!
<For Example> Sayyiduna Zayd bin Haritha ‘ was in reality the son of
Haritha but the Beloved Prophet ] had made him his adopted son,
therefore, people also used to call him Zayd bin Muhammad due to this
same reason. But, the Holy Quran strictly prohibited them from saying so.

“Call them after their fathers; this is more justified in the sight of Allah. But
if you do not know their fathers, then they are your brothers in Faith and

{Surah al Ahzab; 33: 5}
And if one does not know the identity of their fathers then they are your
brothers. When referring to Sayyiduna Zayd ‘ as the son of the Beloved
Prophet ] is Prohibited {‘Haram’} even though the Prophet ] himself
raised him and looked after him. Then, now if someone declares himself as
a ‘Sayyid’ and claims to be from the progeny of the Prophet ] though he is
not a ‘Sayyid’ then one can imagine how great a sinner he is in the light of

“Those of you who leave their wives calling them as their mothers, they are
not their mothers. Their mothers are only those who gave them birth, and
they certainly utter evil and purely false words. And undoubtedly Allah is
necessarily Pardoning, Forgiving.”
{Surah al Mujadilah; 58: 2}
When addressing one’s wife as mother is considered an evil act and a
slander or lie and harsh punishment has been prescribed for such people,
then the one who attributes fatherhood to other than their original and
correct fathers is also liable to be declared a slanderer or a liar and worthy
of the punishment of Hellfire in the light of this Verdict {‘Fatwa’} of the Holy
Quran.
This is to say that the one who is not a ‘Sayyid’ and claims himself to be a
‘Sayyid’ indirectly abuses his mother and is cursed by the Beloved Prophet
] and therefore is a slanderer, liar, cheater, deceitful and worthy of
punishment of Hellfire.

It is in Sahih Muslim, Kitab ul Iman that: <Sayyiduna Abu Bakrah ‘ narrated
that the Beloved Rasul Allah ] said>: “The one who attributed his fatherhood to
other than his original and correct father, even after knowing that he was
not his father, upon him Paradise is Prohibited {‘Haram’}.” {Sahih Muslim, Kitab ul
Iman}
In a similar second Hadith, <Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah ‘ narrated that the Beloved
Rasul Allah ] said>: “Do not deny the lineage of your ancestors, the one who
has denied the fatherhood (lineage) of his real father has done an Act of
Infidelity {‘Kufr’}.” {Sahih Muslim, Kitab ul Iman}
In a similar third Hadith, <Sayyiduna Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas ‘ narrated that the
Beloved Rasul Allah ] said>: “The Muslim who attributes himself to other than
his original and correct father knowing that he is not his father, upon him
Paradise is Prohibited.” {Sahih Muslim, Kitab ul Iman} And in another Hadith it is:
“He is Unthankful to Allah Almighty .”

Sixth Guideline Sixth Guideline Sixth Guideline Sixth Guideline: :: : If a person belonging to a ‘Sayyid’ family comes out of the
fold of Islam and becomes Hindu, Sikh, Mirzai, Rafzi, etc then that person
no longer remains a ‘Sayyid’ and nor they are entitled to the merits which
have been presented above. This is due to their Infidelity {‘Kufr’}, therefore,
the genealogical ties with the Beloved Prophet ] break away instantly.
They are not from the family of their forefathers in the light of Sacred
Islamic Law {‘Shariyah’}. The Holy Quran says regarding ‘Kan’an’- the son of
Sayyiduna Nuh 6 as follows:

“He said, ‘O Nuh! He is not of your family. No doubt his work is not
righteous; .......”
{Surah Hud; 11: 46}
When the real son of Sayyiduna Nuh 6 - ‘Kan’an’ does not remain his
son due to Infidelity {Kufr’} then how can be such heretics from the
progeny or children of the Beloved Prophet ] remain his progeny or
children?
The Holy Quran further states about ‘Aas bin Wael’ as follows:

“Undoubtedly, one who is your enemy, he is cut off from every good.”
{Surah al Kawthar; 108: 3}
Note that ‘Aas bin Wael’ had children but Allah Almighty  refers to him
as ‘Abtar’ i.e. Childless because all his children had become Muslims and
he remained an Infidel {‘Kafir’}. Therefore, he was not accepted as a father
of these people nor those people were accepted as his children.

. Regarding the Reasons of Revealation of Surah al Kawthar, Imam al Mufassirin
Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas ‘, Sayyiduna Mujahid ‘, Sayyiduna Saeed bin Jubayr ‘
and Sayyiduna Qatadah ‘ say that this particular Ayah or Surah was revealed for Aas
bin Wael. Muhammad bin Ishaq narrates from Sayyiduna Yazid bin Ruma ‘ that: “When
Aas bin Wael used to hear about the Prophet ] he used to say, ‘Leave him, he is with out

We come to know that due to the difference in Religion and Beliefs,
genealogical ties come to an end! And similarity in Religion and Beliefs is a
compulsory condition for genealogical ties.
Upon these people <who later became heretics> the Commandments of the
Sacred Islamic Law {‘Shariyah’} are also not applicable. Therefore, an Infidel
{‘Kafir’} son of a Muslim father does not inherit his father’s property or
wealth. In fact, an Infidel son even can not and does not become a barrier
for other Inheritors, neither being the one who can stop others from
Inheritance {‘Hajab e Harman’} nor being the one who can decrease some
thing from Inheritance {‘Hajab e Nuqsan’}. He can not be buried with the
<Muslim> father in the same graveyard. The father cannot perform the last
rites or funeral rites of this Infidel child according to the Sacred Islamic
Laws {‘Shariyah’}. In fact, some Believing {‘Mu’min’} mothers even practice
{‘Hijab’ or ‘Pardah’} with their Infidel sons! An Infidel man cannot be married
to a Believing {‘Mu’min’} woman. This is to say that in all the Islamic
Commandments, such as, Funeral rites {‘Janazah’}, Inheritance {‘Mirath’},

a tail (sibling), he has no male child. When he will die his remembrance (fame) will also
die.’ So upon this Allah Almighty revealed this Surah.” {Sirat Ibn Hisham; 1: 393 and
Tafsir Ibn Kathir; 4: 958, Urdu Translation by Shaykh Ikram al Azhari, Shaykh Saeed al
Azhari and Shaykh Altaf Husayn al Azhari; Adabi Dunya, Delhi}
Sadr ul Afazil Sayyid Nayimuddin Quadri Ashrafi Muradabadi also writes that, The
Reason for Revelation {‘Shan ul Nuzul’} of Surah al Kawthar is that: “When the son of the
Chief of the Worlds- the Beloved Prophet ], <Sayyiduna> Qasim ‘ passed away, the
Infidels {‘Kuffar’} referred to him as ‘Abtar’ i.e. Childless or the one whose progeny is
terminated {‘Munqata’ ul Nasal’} and said that after him his progeny will not be present,
after him his remembrance will also end and all these publicity will also end. Upon these
sayings, the Surah was revealed and Allah Almighty has clearly mentioned these sayings
of theirs as lies (falsehood) and amply refuted them.” {Tafsir Khazayin ul Irfan}
Marriage {‘Nikah’}, Shrouding and Burial {‘Kafan Dafan’}, etc this principle is
followed; Therefore, a Muslim is not the father of an Infidel nor is the
Infidel the child of a Believer {‘Mu’min’}.
In the similar way, the one who claims to be ‘Sayyid’ but has become an
Apostate {‘Murtad’}, he does not even remain a Muslim let alone being a
‘Sayyid’!
And All Praise belongs to Allah And All Praise belongs to Allah And All Praise belongs to Allah And All Praise belongs to Allah ! ! ! ! {‘Al Hamdulillah!’} {‘Al Hamdulillah!’} {‘Al Hamdulillah!’} {‘Al Hamdulillah!’}

This Verdict {‘Fatwa’} was completed in a very concise manner due to my
busy schedules. And I name it as, ‘Al Kalam ul Maqbul fi Taharati Nasab al
Rasul’. May Allah Almighty  accept it! <Amin!>

And Peace and Blessings of Allah Almighty  be upon the Best of
Creations - Sayyiduna Muhammad ], his Progeny and his Companions!

The famous Mufassir, genius Faqih and erudite Muhaddith of the Indian
subcontinent Hakeem ul Ummat Ashraf ul Mufassirin Mufti Ahmad Yar
Khan Nayimi Ashrafi Quadri Hanafi Badayuni bin Shaykh Muhammad
Yaar Khan Badayuni was born in 1324 A.H / 1906 C.E at Awjhani, near
the North Indian city of Badayun. His father Mawlana Yaar Khan was the
Murid (disciple) of Shaykh ul Mashaikh Sayyid Ali Husayn Ashrafi Quadri
Chishti Kichochavi (1266-1355 A.H / 1849-1936 C.E).
Education Education Education Education
Hakim ul Ummat acquired basic Persian and Arabic learning under his
father and then joined Madrasa Shams ul Ulum, Badayun in 1916 C.E and
continued learning here till 1919 C.E. During these same years he visited
Bareily to meet Imam ul Huda Ahmad Raza Khan Quadri Muhaddith
Bareilvi. Mufti Ahmad Yaar himself narrates the incident as follows:
“My age at that time was somewhere between 10-12 years and I was
staying at Badayun. During those days 27th Rajab was approaching and at
Ala’ Hazrat’s place (in Bareily) the preparations for ‘Mairaj un Nabi’ were
at its height. Ala’ Hazrat used to order special arrangements under his
supervision for this ceremony. Due to his busy engagements and tight
schedule, it was difficult to meet him, but somehow we were fortunate
enough in seeing him in one of the gatherings.”
Regarding his educational experiences he says:
“I studied under Deobandi scholars for quite some time and under their
influence I began to think that excellence and greatness in (Islamic)
Research can only be found in this particular group...But I met Sadr ul
Afazil Sayyid Nayimuddin Muradabadi and he gave me a monologue of
Ala’ Hazrat titled ‘Ataya ul Qadeer fi Hukm ul Tasvir’ for reading… and
my fascination for its content found no bonds and limits. When I further
carefully studied this book I began to think about the author and was
captivated by his Scholarly Expertise and Timely Insight... The Truth is that
this book completely changed my Psychological and Doctrinal world and
brought a revolution in it.”
Hakeem ul Ummat joined Madrasa Islamiya in 1920 or so but when he
came to know about its affiliation with the Wahhabiya school Dar ul Ulum
Deoband, he left the Madrasa and migrated to join Jamiya Nayimiya,
Muradabad.
Jamiya Nayimiya was the largest Ahl us Sunnah Madrasa in Northern
India; it had the distinction of having some of the greatest scholars of Ahl
us Sunnah in its faculties. Sadr ul Afazil Sayyid Nayimuddin Ashrafi
Muradabadi (1300-1367 A.H / 1883-1948 C.E) taught him for some time but he
soon became busy with the National affairs of Indian Muslims, therefore
he sent for Shaykh Mushtaq Ahmad Kanpuri Naqshbandi Quadri (d.1360 A.H
/ 1941 C.E), the son of Shaykh Ahmad Hasan Kanpuri (d.1322 A.H / 1903 C.E), who
was the Khalifa of Shaykh ul Mashaikh Haji Imdadullah Chishti Muhajir
Makki (1223-1318 A.H / 1817-1899 C.E) to teach at Jamiya Nayimiya.
When, Sadr ul Ulama Mushtaq Ahmad Kanpuri later shifted to Merut,
Hakeem ul Ummat with the permission of Sadr ul Afazil also migrated to
Merut to complete his studies under his teacher. In 1344 A.H / 1925 C.E,
Hakeem ul Ummat Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan completed his studies and Sadr
ul Afazil tied a Turban at a Convocation Ceremony in Merut.

Baiyah and Khilafah Baiyah and Khilafah Baiyah and Khilafah Baiyah and Khilafah
Hakeem ul Ummat took Baiyah at the hands of Sadr ul Afazil Sayyid
Nayimuddin Ashrafi Muradabadi in the Quadriya Chishtiya Ashrafiya
tariqah. He also received Khilafah in the same tariqahs from Sadr ul Afazil
and Shabiha Ghawth al A’zam Shaykh ul Mashaikh Makhdum ul Awliya
Sayyid Ali Husayn Ashrafi Jilani Kichochavi who is famously known as
Ala’ Hazrat Ashrafi Miyan.
His Services at various Islamic Universities and Students His Services at various Islamic Universities and Students His Services at various Islamic Universities and Students His Services at various Islamic Universities and Students
Hakeem ul Ummat taught and gave Fatawa at Jamiya Nayimiya until he
was sent to Madrasa Miskiniya where he taught for 9 years. Shaykh ul
Mashaikh Sayyid Ali Husayn Ashrafi invited him to teach at Madrasa
Ashrafiya, Kichocha where he served for 3 years and received Khilafah in
the Ashrafiya tariqah. It was here that Hakeem ul Ummat began to have
close relationship with his Grand-Murshid, Shaykh ul Mashaikh Sayyid
Ali Husayn Ashrafi to an extent that the respected Shaykh made a Will at
the time of his demise that Hakeem ul Ummat should also take part in his
Funeral bath.
Then, Mufti al A’zam Pakistan Sayyid Abul Barakat Ahmad Quadri Ashrafi
(d.1397 A.H / 1978 C.E) invited Hakeem ul Ummat Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan
Ashrafi Nayimi to teach at Dar ul Ulum Khuddam ul Sufiya, Gujrat and
then Jamiya Anjuman Khuddam ul Rasul, Gujrat and he served both the
Madrasas for 13 and 10 years respectfully. Six years before his demise he
began teaching at Jamiya Ghawthiya Nayimiya, Gujrat.
In all Hakeem ul Ummat gave lessons in Fiqh, Hadith and Tafsir for 46
years raising and guiding some of the finest scholars of Ahl us Sunnah wal
Jamah. Hakeem ul Ummat also indirectly raised more students with his
outstanding books than perhaps any scholar in recent times, his works
continue to benefit even the most proficient scholars and not to mention
hundreds of common people who discover new beams of salvation, textual
proofs in support of Ahl us Sunnah which save them from the Heretical
sects and make them firmly adhere to the Path and Aqidah of Ahl us
Sunnah wal Jamah. Among his students are:

opus work of Hakeem ul Ummat Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan Ashrafi
Nayimi in Urdu and largest ever from the pen of a Scholar from the
Indian subcontinent. The Tafsir was started in 1363 A.H / 1943 C.E and
the Exegation of first 10 parts of the Glorious Quran was completed in
10 Volumes of approximately spanning 900-1000 pages each! He
continued with the Tafsir of 11th part until he completed the Tafsir of
the Ayah # 62 of Surah Yunus (10) in which Allah Almighty says:
“Listen carefully! No doubt, there is no fear nor any grief upon the
Friends of Allah (Awliya Allah).”
Hakeem ul Ummat lived for some days after completing the Tafsir of the
above mentioned Ayah and passed away leaving the Tafsir work
incomplete.
Tafsir al Nayimi is classed among the highest category of Tafsirs, defined
by scholars as ‘Tafsir bil Riwayah’ (Exegesis by Transmission). The Translation of
Quranic verses in Tafsir al Nayimi is taken from Imam ul Huda Ahmad
Raza Khan Muhaddith’s Urdu translation of Quran titled ‘Kanz ul Iman’.
Hakeem ul Ummat writes that this Tafsir is primarily based upon the
following sources and reference Tafasirs such as Tafsir Ruh ul Bayan
(Arabic) by Shaykh Ismail Haqqi bin Mustafa Hanafi (d.1137 A.H), Tafsir
al Kabir (Arabic) by Imam Fakhruddin Razi Shafai (d.606 A.H / 1210 C.E),
Tafsir al Azizi (Persian) by Imam ul Muhaddithin Abdul Aziz Muhaddith
Hanafi Dehlavi (1159-1239 A.H / 1748-1823 C.E), Tafsir Madarik al
Tanzil (Arabic) by Imam Abdullah bin Ahmad Nasafi Hanafi (d.710 A.H /
1302 C.E), Tafsir Muhyuddin Ibn al Arabi (Arabic/Tasawwuf) by Shaykh al
Akbar Muhyuddin Ibn al Arabi Shafai Andulusi (d.638 A.H / 1240 C.E)
and Tafsir Khazayin ul Irfan (Urdu) by Sadr ul Afazil Sayyid Nayimuddin
Quadri Ashrafi Hanafi Muradabadi (1300-1367 A.H / 1883-1948 C.E).
Hakeem ul Ummat Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan Ashrafi starts the Tafsir by
explaining the differences between T’awil (Interpretation or explanation
by Reasoning), Tafsir (Exegetion) and Tahrif (Textual Manipulation). He
also explains the differences between a Mawlvi or Mawlana and a Sufi.
The Tafsir has some unique qualities such as:
1.> The relation of the Ayah explained and interpreted with that of the
previous Ayah is discussed in detail.
2.> The ‘Shan al Nuzul’ or ‘Asbab ul Nuzul’ (The Reasons for Revelation) of
Ayahs are explained in simple and easy style.
3.> The Tafsir is explained and interpreted both at length and in depth
and also in a concise manner so that it may benefit both the groups i.e the
ones wanting a detail interpretation and the ones who require a short and
concise Tafsir.
4.> The Tafsir also includes Sufi exegetion so that people may derive the
right meaning from a given Ayah of the Holy Quran.
5.> The Ayah which are related with Fiqh and Ahkam are interpreted
extensively and the Shariah Laws derived from such verses are explained
in a easy and precise manner according to Fiqh al Hanafi.
5.> The Tafsir is based upon the Matrudi Aqidah of Ahlus Sunnah and
contains answers and refutations of almost all the major Heretical Sects of
Islam such as the Muta’zilah, Rawafiz, Khawarij, Ismailiya, Mahdaviya, the
modern day Khawarij i.e the Wahhabiya and its sub sects like the La
Madhabiya (Ahe Hadith), Ishaqiya, Deobandiya, Nadwiya, Naychariya,
Ahle Quran and most importantly the Ahmadiya or Qadiyaniya sect. The
Tafsir also contains refutations and answers to the false allegations on
Islam by Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Jainism, Communism and the
Arya Samaj among the Hindu fundamentalists. The Arya Samaj wrote a
book ‘Satya Prakash’ forwarding Hinduism as the greatest religion and
attacking Islam in the 14th chapter of the book. Hakeem ul Ummat wrote
excellent answers to the allegations and their misunderstandings of Sacred
Islamic Law {‘Shariyah’}.
Shaykh Mufti Ikhtidar Ahmad Khan Quadri Nayimi, the younger son of
Hakeem ul Ummat has until now completed the Tafsir till the 18th part of
the Quran according to the format and principles laid down by his erudite
father. We pray to Allah Almighty with the Wasilah of His Beloved Prophet
Muhammad that he grant Mufti Ikhtidar Khan enough strength and high
spirits to complete the Tafsir as soon as possible and May Allah, the Most
High protect him.

by the Ahl us Sunnah in general and particularly by the Hanafiya in the
