REASONS FOR A STRICT STANCE AGAINST THE DEOBANDī SECT

Reason # 1 - Their Infidelity The first and foremost reason is the infidelities and blasphemies of the Deobandī scholars - these in reality are the fundamental differences - these heretic beliefs are written in their books and are ingrained in the hearts of the Deobandī followers. Reason # 2 - Difficulty In Identification As far as following a madhab, the Deobandī‟s also label themselves as Hanafī‟s and followers of the school of thought of Imām al-A‟zam Abū Hanīfa. They offer Salāh (prayer) as we do. Their calls for Salāh are the same as ours. In short, there are no zāhir [outward] signs from which the Muslims may differentiate with the Deobandī‟s. There is every possibility that simple Muslims will misunderstand them. Therefore it is necessary that the beliefs of the Deobandī School are presented clearly to the masses, in order that there is no difficulty in identifying them. As for the Shi‟as, their call for prayers, their mode of prayer etc., are vastly different from that of Sunnīs - they are easily identifiable. The same is the case with the ghayr muqallids. It is evident enough from how they pray that they are followers of different beliefs and a self-made school of thought. Therefore the need to warn individuals of such deviated sects is not as essential as it is to educate them about the satanic Deobandī sect. Reason # 3 - Their Methods of Corrupting the Faith of Sunnī Masses By entering the ranks of our Sunnī masses, and impersonating to be on our side, they lure the Sunnī masses using many methods - and when they assume that they have been successful in doing so, they inculcate respect and adoration in their hearts for the elders of the Deoband school. Thereafter they begin to abhor all the beliefs and customs, which were dear to them like their faith - and consider the Sunnī belief as polytheism and heresy! [astagfirullah] Within a few days, their hearts are sealed with such wretchedness that they are not prepared to listen to any reference be it from the Holy Qur'ān or Hadīth. In such circumstances, there is no other way left to save the masses from going astray from the sirat al-mustaqīm followed by the Holy Prophet şallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam and the saints, but to educate them about the corrupt beliefs of the Deobandī sect, their deceits and fraud. Reason # 4 - The Hypocrisy of the Deobandī Sect Researching into the traits of the Deobandī sect, it is clearly evident that they are truly the inheritors of the traits of the hypocrites mentioned in the Holy Qur'ān. For instance, the hypocrites were double-faced. One face was shown to their own group whilst the other was for the honourable Muslim Companions of the Holy Prophet şallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam. The Holy Qur'ān has narrated this trait in the following words: And when they meet with the believers, they say, “We believe”; and when they are alone with their devils, they say, “We are undoubtedly with you, we were just mocking!”1

Sūrah al-Baqarah, Verse 14

It is stated in Tafsīr al-Jalalyn, commenting on this ayah: When they meet; those who believe, they say, „We believe‟; but when they go apart, away from them and return, to their devils , their leaders, they say, „We are with you, in religion; we were only mocking, them [the believers] by feigning belief.

The same is the case with the Deobandī sect. They too have two faces - one for the faithful followers of the Holy Prophet şallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam and the other for members of their own group.

It is stated in Imdād al-Karam: When the hypocrites would meet the Muslims they would claim to have Īmān [in Islam], [however] when they would meet with the mukhalifīn-e Islam [enemy/opponents of Islam] they would say [asl main] in reality we are with you [and profess to what you believe in], we were only mocking the Muslims...
