A Strange Meeting
By Ali khan
17 September 2009
A village in district Barabanki is a microcosm of the struggle between the Barelvi Sunnis and those with Wahhabi inclinations. The town's population is largely Sunni with a Shia minority. Before partition, the rulers of the estate were Shia and were a collateral branch of the Mahmudabad family. Mahmudabad's Muharram processions are famous all over India and in some parts of the world. When processions were banned in Lucknow, people flocked to Mahmudabad. Bilehra always had smaller processions but the thing that stood out was that most of the crowds were Sunni Muslims.
With the arrival of funds from some Middle East countries as well as returning migrant workers, some of whom had spent years away from home and were influenced by their surroundings, Bilehra gradually saw the rise of Wahhabism. The crowds in Muharram diminished and the number of people who attended prayers at the Barelvi mosque also fell. According to one young man, for a number of years the people who subscribed to the Barelvi school of thought would outwardly show loyalty to the Wahhabis.
The Wahhabis - with their puritanical behaviour and insistence that some Sunnis and all Shias are essentially infidels - have polarised Muslim societies worldwide. Their literalist interpretation of the Quran is reductionist and does not allow scope for debate, analysis or a contextual, historical and consequently nuanced understanding. They strictly forbid music, religious or spiritual, and veneration of holy men amongst many other things.
A number of urs, gatherings around the tomb of a Sufi pir where music is performed and poetry is read aloud in remembrance of the Prophet, his family and the pir, are held in and around Bilehra. People who attended these functions are now subject to the taunts of students at the Wahhabi mosques. During Muharram, people would be afraid of going to processions or keeping a tazia, a paper replica of the shrine of Imam Hussain in Iraq, in their houses since these acts would also mark them out for heckling and jeering. The less powerful Barelvis could not match the money or resources thrown at them. But it is not power or money that has shaken or caught by surprise the Wahhabis.
Earlier this year an individual ignored and labelled a madman who roamed the streets of Bilehra became the crucial factor in the resurgence of the Barelvis. Mastaan Baba was homeless. People remember him wandering around, sleeping under trees, eating what little he was given and never trying to gather any worldly possessions. About six months ago, he was asleep as usual underneath a mango tree in the fields adjoining the Kerbala, where the tazias are brought after the processions and buried. A little girl came and lay down next to him and when he noticed her he got upset, pushed her and asked her to go away. Apparently, when she got up, her back had straightened and she was no longer a hunchback.
People flocked from villages all around to see the girl and to see this man. He continued to wear what he had always worn, a dirty white kurta, a black lungi or cotton towel wrapped around his legs like a sarong. He carried a little satchel tucked under his arms. The little brick room in which he sometimes slept has now become a beehive of activity. People have set up shops around the room, a power cable that was meant to be laid a long time ago is now finally in place and there is a constant throng around him.
Politicians, IAS officers and many other officials have all come to him in different capacities. Since that night he hit the girl, there have been more stories about his powers and how he has changed people's lives. Hindus and Muslims both are seen around him. This article is not about whether following him is permissible in Islam. It seems that people are desperate to seek out men who have not been 'corrupted' by the material world. The rise of Mastaan Baba in Bilehra has had an inadvertent effect on Bilehra's Muslims.
People who had gone over to the Wahhabi mosque and others who had hidden their true sympathies with the Barelvis have started to drift back. Whereas the Barelvi mosque used to be nearly empty with about 30 people, recent Eid prayers saw close to 300 people in attendance. Wahhabis in Bilehra who openly condemned anything involving the veneration of living or dead men as innovations in Islam, have found themselves drawn to a quiet, wandering man. A few refuse to acknowledge Mastaan Baba but, according to people who live there, their wives and daughters regularly and secretly go to visit him!
It seems there are now a couple of more people in Bilehra who claim to be Mastaan Baba. Regardless of whether this man is genuine or not, it seems he has managed to single-handedly and unintentionally stall the rise of Wahhabism, in and around Bilehra.

Comments on this article are a clear testimony and living proof of the deep-rooted hatred amongst different sects of Muslims and there is a severe warning from Prof. Jawaid Ahmed; both are complimentary to each other. I am not sure how serious is Prof Jawaid when he talks about the elimination of Muslims but I could see it a reality from a different angles.
We have a safavid Ahmedinejad in Iran, his proponent Nasrallah in Lebanon who is currently out of Power. let him be in power, let Hamas overtake the full Palestine, let US get frustrated in its quest to win Afghan war and let Mullah Omar resume political power in Afghanistan, Let Asif Zadari be assassinated and Pakistan be under control of Wahhabi Taliban-Al Qaida Leadership, Let Abu Saif hold some political powers in a few more eastern islands of Asia, Let Salafi-led Mosques spread some more venom in European countries, US, Canada etc, Let Iraq come under the full grip of Al Sadr, Let Kashmir face some more bloodshed by so-Called Mujajids, Let there be a few more riots in Chinese Sinkiang province, Let Obama phenomenon be over, Let Somalia be under complete rule of Al Qaida, Let Sudan be more aggressive, Let Al Qaida assassinate few Kings in Middle East then...West, Israel-India can surely fire a few dozen nukes on the region, that too under the supervision of UN. It’s very much possible not in 25-30 years but 10-15 years only. Things are not moving in the right direction...only .....can't see it.
One can visualise a day in this world when there will be no place for Haj either. Things are getting worse day after day.

The editor is wasting his time and energy in trying to reform Islam. IT JUST CANNOT BE DONE. BY DEFINITION, ISLAM CANNOT BE REFORMED. I WAS BORN AND BROUGHT UP AS A MUSLIM, BUT WAS ALWAYS TOUGHT THAT THERE IS ONE GOD OF ALL MANKIND. Now my society calls me a kafir. A common law MUSLIM WILL NEVER NEVER ACCEPT THAT BY DEFINITION. A MUSLIM ACTUALLY BELIEVES IN MULTIPLE GODS, ONE OF MUSLIMS, ANOTHER OF HINDUS, ANOTHER OF CHRISTIANS AND YET ANOTHER OF BUDDISTS. It is this most inherent and fundamental belief in multiple gods that lies at the heart of hate and violence.
My forecast is that Muslims will take this world to great sorrow before the world decides to eliminate them. It is just a matter of time ... about 30-50 years in my estimate.

WAHABIS DON’T GO TO MADINAH MUNAWWARAH…AS THEY HAVE CORRUPT AQUIDAH (NOT THE UMMAH)
OF MAKING WORSHIP OF GRAVES & CANCER OF BIDATH
YOU ARE A BIG WAHABI WA BA'DA ZALIKA ZANEEM TO ACCUSE INNOCENT AND JAYIZ ACTS AS THE ACTS OF WORSHIP BASED ON YOUR SKEWED TALENT.
In his commentary Imaam Qurtubi (18/21) said:
'Aishah reported: "Umm Habibah and Umm Salamah mentioned to Allah's Messenger, peace be upon him, a church in which they saw drawings while in Abyssinia, whereupon he said: 'Those people used to build a place of worship over the grave of a righteous man among them when he died and make such drawings in it. These will be the worst of people in the sight of Allah on the Day of Resurrection.'' (Bukhari and Muslim).
Imam Qurtubi says " It is forbidden to take the Graves of Prophets and righteous man as places of Worship. Do not pray to the graves or sit down or kiss the grave as the Jews did, leading to worship of graves and Idolatory."
Imam Qurtubi says “Therefore, the Muslims went to great lengths to block the tendency to do so at the grave of the Prophet (saws). They raised the dirt walls around it high, completely surrounding it and blocking off the entrances to it. Then they feared that the location of his grave might be turned into a direction for prayer, because it was in the direction the worshippers face and some of them might get the idea that facing it was an act of worship. For this reason, they built two walls at the northern corners of the grave and placed them at a slant so that they would form a triangle with on of its corners pointing to the North. In this way, no one could be able to directly face the grave while making his prayer.“ [al-Mufhim lima Ashkal min Talkis Kitâb Muslim (2/128)]
Praise be to Allaah.
Some of the haraam things that some visitors do, to which attention should be drawn, include the following: -1-
Praying (making du’aa’) to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) or calling him, or seeking his help, as some of them say, “O Messenger of Allaah, heal my sick loved one; O Messenger of Allaah, pay off my debt; you are the means, you are the fulfillment of my need,” and other words which imply shirk and which are the opposite of Tawheed which is the right of Allaah over His slave.
-2- Standing before the grave in a posture of prayer, placing the right hand on top of the left over one's chest or below it. This is a haraam action, because this is a posture of humility and worship which we are only permitted to do for Allaah.
-3- Bowing or prostrating at the grave, which is actions we are only permitted to do for Allaah. It was narrated that Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “It is not appropriate for a human being to bow to another.” Narrated by Ahmad, 3/158; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1936, 1937; Irwa’ al-Ghaleel, 3/158.
-4- Praying to Allaah at the grave, or believing that du’aa’ offered at the grave will be answered. This is a haraam action because it is something that may lead to shirk. If du’aa’s offered at graves or at the grave of the Prophet were better and more correct and more beloved to Allaah, then the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) would have encouraged us to do that, because he did not leave anything that will bring us close to Paradise but he urged his ummah to do it. Because he did not do that, we know that it is an action that is not prescribed in sharee’ah, and it is an action that is haraam and forbidden.
Abu Ya’la and al-Haafiz al-Diya’ narrated in al-Mukhtaarah that ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn (may Allaah be pleased with him) saw a man entering through a gap at the grave of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and making du’aa’. He told him not to do that and said,
“Shall I not tell you a hadeeth that I heard from my father from my grandfather from the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? ‘Do not take my grave as a place of festivity (which you visit repeatedly) and do not take your houses as graves. Send blessings upon me for your greeting will reach me no matter where you are.’” Narrated by Abu Dawood, 2042; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood, 1796.
Some of those who are unable to go to Madeenah send their salaams to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) with some visitors, some of whom stand and convey these salaams. This is an innovated action that has been made up. Those who send salaams and those who convey them should refrain from doing so, because there is no need for that, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,
“Send blessings upon me for your greeting will reach me no matter where you are.”
And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah has angels on earth who travel around conveying to me the salaams of my ummah.” Narrated by Ahmad, 1/441; al-Nasaa’i, 1282; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 2170.
Repeatedly visiting his grave and going there a great deal, such as visiting after every obligatory prayer, or every day after a specific prayer. This is going against the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him),
“Do not take my grave as a place of festivity (which you visit repeatedly).” Ibn Hajar al-Haythami said in Sharh al-Mishkaat: “Eid (translated here as “a place of festivity) is the name of one of the festivals, and it was said that it means returning and repeating, until it becomes a habit [‘aadah].
What is meant is: do not make my grave a place to which you have the habit of coming back repeatedly and often. Hence he said, ‘Send blessings upon me for your greeting will reach me no matter where you are,’ because that is sufficient and there is no need to visit his grave frequently.”
In the book al-Jaami’ li’l-Bayaan by Ibn Rushd it says: “Maalik (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about a stranger who comes to the grave of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) each day. He said, ‘That is not right,’ and quoted the hadeeth, ‘O Allaah, do not make my grave an idol that is worshipped.’” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Tahdheer al-Saajid min Ittikhaadh al-Quboor Masaajid, p. 24-26.
Ibn Rushd said: “So he regarded it as makrooh to pass by it a great deal to send salaam on him, and to come there every day, lest the grave become like a mosque to which people come every day to pray. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade that when he said, ‘O Allaah, do not make my mosque an idol.’” See al-Bayaan wa’l-Tahseel by Ibn Rushd, 18/444-445.
Al-Qaadi ‘Iyaad was asked about people of Madeenah who stand by the grave one or more times a day, and they send salaams and make du’aa’ for a while. He said, “I have not heard of this from any of the fuqaha’, and nothing is good for the latter generations of this ummah except that which was good for its first generations. I have not heard that any of the first generations of the ummah used to do that.” Al-Shifa bi Ta’reef Huqooq al-Mustafa, 2/676.
Turning to face the grave from all sides of the mosque, or turning to face it whenever one enters the mosque or finishes a prayer, and putting one's hands on one's sides and inclining the head when sending salaams upon him, All of these are widespread and well-known innovations (bid’ah) which go against sharee’ah.
Fear Allaah, O slaves of Allaah, and beware of all innovations and actions that go against sharee’ah. Beware of whims and desires and blind imitation, and follow true guidance. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Is he who is on a clear proof from his Lord, like those for whom their evil deeds that they do are beautified for them, while they follow their own lusts (evil desires)?”
We ask Allaah to guide us and help us to guide others, and to follow the Sunnah of the greatest of the Messengers
Apropos Mr. Shamshad Elahee Ansari’s comments: The point of the article is not to report the phenomenon of Mastaan Baba, but the impact he has had, regardless of the veracity of claims made about him, in strengthening India’s syncretic Islam and in drawing followers and sympathizers away from the exclusivist Wahhabi Islam which is at the moment on the rise and is consequently getting more and more aggressive in its mostly successful attempt to cow down the Barelvis and other Sufi-minded Muslims.
Wahhabi aggression, subtle and not-so-subtle, overpowered the sub-continent’s integrationist Islam in Pakistan first and is now on the rise in India and Bangladesh, thanks to the injection of tens of billions of petrodollars since 1974. Mastaan Baba maybe a straw, but at least he is the straw that broke the camel’s back in one small part of India. For the many faithful who look at the acts of seemingly supernatural mystics as pointers to things to come, this maybe a good augury. For others too, it is a sign that Indian Islam is not quite ready yet to be overpowered by Saudi-Pakistani Islam and that the situation here is not irreversible as it has become in Pakistan.
More details of claims about Mastaan Baba and photographs, etc. would be required in a report on him and his powers. This is not such a report. Here it would distract readers from the main point.
This is a wonderful and positive changeshowing that there was no appeal in Wahhabism before nor it would be in future,rather it was a kind of rebellion with Allah and his Rasool Sallallaho A'laihiWa Sallam that made rebels to flock together causing low attendance in themosques. Muslims ultimately realised that the rebellion is not the paying job,but it leads to fire alone.

Ziyaarah of Madina (Visiting the grave of Rasulullah )
Mulla Ali Quari Rehmatullah Alehi the famous Aalim and Muhaddith has written that besides a few (that are not authoritative and hold a different view) the consensus of the Muslims is that to visit (Ziyarah) Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm (grave) is an important act of piety. It is also a very desirable form of ibaadah, a very successful way of attaining spiritual elevation and an encouraging reason for an acceptable intercession. Some Scholars have said that it is waajib (obligatory) upon that person who has the means to reach there. AlIamah Shaami relates this same view from Ibn Hajar that to avoid going for ziyaarah is sheer negligence and carelessness. In Durre Manthoor it is stated that to visit the tomb of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm is desirable.
In view of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm countless favors on the Ummah and the hopes that are expected from Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm after death, it is indeed unfortunate if his ziyaarah is not made in spite of having the means. To miss the great honor of ziyaarah and to offer excuses is being neglectful and careless.
In view of certain ahaadith some Ulama have said that the intention made for this journey must be to visit the Musjid-an-Nabawi and not the grave of Rasulullah. The consensus of the four Mazhabs is that it is mustahab to visit the grave of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm. We have already quoted Mulla Ali Quari's reference from authoritative Hanafi books at the outset of this chapter.
Imaam Nawawi Rehmatullah Alehi the famous Shafi'ee Imaam writes in his book on hajj: "When hajj has been performed then with the intention of ziyaarah of Rasulullah's tomb one should proceed to Madina, because ziyaarah of Rasulullah's grave is considered to be important among acts of righteousness and is most rewardful." [Manasik of Imam Nawawi]
The Maaliki mazhab mentions in Anwaari Saati' aa that to visit the tomb of Nabi Sallallahu Alehi wassalm is a desirable sunnah, which is required and approved of by the Shariah. It is very highly esteemed as a means to gaining the nearness of Allah. Qadhi Ayaadh Maaliki Rehmatullah Alehi has written in the Shifa that the ziyaarah of the tomb of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm is a unanimously accepted sunnah. Some Maaliki Ulama have said it is waajib. Qastalaani has quoted Abu Imraan Faarsi Rehmatullah Alehi in Mawaahib of holding this opinion.
Mughni the famous Book of the Hambali mazhab states it is mustahab to visit the tomb of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm. In one hadith it is said: "Whoever visits my grave, my intercession for him becomes obligatory." Imaam Ahmad Rehmatullah Alehi has quoted this hadith of Rasulullah in which he has said: "Whenever anyone says salaam to me at my grave, I answer his salaam (salutation)." In Sharhi Kabier which is an authoritative book of the Hambali mazhab it is written: 'When haj has been performed, it is mustahab that the tomb of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm and the tomb of his two companions (Abu Bakr and Umar radhiallahu anhum) be visited." Thereafter the same haadith were quoted as are quoted in the Mughni.
In the famous Hambali text Daliel-at-Taalib, after the chapter on hajj it is stated: "It is masnoon (sunnah) to visit the tomb of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm and his two companions." In Nailul Ma'aarib which is the commentary of the above work it is explained: If to visit these tombs are mustahab then it is obvious that to travel to Madina is mustahab too. Otherwise how will it be possible for a haji to perform this ziyaarah without travelling to Madina. Similarly in the Hambali kitaab Rowdhul Murabba' it is written: "It is mustahab to visit the sacred tomb of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm and the tombs of his two companions, because it is related in the hadith.
From the above it is clear that this matter has the consensus of the four Imaams and many other scholars. Many ahaadith encouraging this ziyaarah are related from Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm. Now lets ponder over the below hadith:
Abu Hurairah RA reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm said: "It is not permissible that a journey should be undertaken towards any mosque except one of the following three: the Masjid-al-Haraam, Masjid-al-Aqsaa and this Masjid of mine." [Mishkaat]
In this hadith one is prohibited from undertaking a journey for visiting any mosque except any of the three. For this reason some Ulama stated that one is not allowed undertaking a journey to visit the grave of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm. They even go so far as to state that one should visit Madina only with the intention of visiting the mosque and not the grave. If after visiting the mosque, they do visit the grave of the Nabi Sallallahu Alehi wassalm it is then not prohibited. According to the vast majority of ulama, that is not the meaning of this hadith. This hadith in fact means that apart from the three mosques, a journey may not be undertaken to visit any other mosque because whereas these mosques are of great importance and significance, other mosques do not have any special significance.
The view of these learned scholars is substantiated by this same hadith as reported in some versions thereof that to no other mosques other than these three may one undertake a journey. Hence it is prohibited to visit a certain town specifically in order to visit the mosque as is the custom these days when from all over e.g. Bombay, Calcutta etc. people come to Delhi to perform the last Jumu'ah of Ramadhaan in the Delhi Jumu'ah Masjid. This is a mere waste of money.
Imaam Ghazaali Rehmatullah Alehi says: "Some ulama had prohibited the ziyaarah of the graves of sahaabah and ulama because of this hadith, even though the Rasul Sallallahu Alehi wassalm is reported to have said: 'Previously I prohibited you from visiting the graves. Now I permit you to do so. Visit the graves'." The hadith under discussion points out that all mosques (apart from three mentioned ) are equal in virtue. Not one of them has anything special lifting it above the rest. and thus giving cause to their being specially visited. As for the graves of the holy ones and blessings derived there, this is a matter apart. I now ask: "Is it then also prohibited to visit the graves of the Prophets? No."
However, there is no doubt that apart from traveling to these mosques, many other journeys too are permissible and in fact compulsory, e.g. traveling for Jihaad, travelling in search of knowledge, traveling on Hijrah, business journeys, etc. Hence everyone must come to the conclusion that the hadith does not set out to prohibit all journeys except towards three Masjids.
The Sahaabah and the Taabi'een have practically illustrated that it is permissible to undertake a journey to visit the sacred tomb of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm in Madina.
1. Allamah Subki Rehmatullah Alehi writes: Reliable sources have related how Bilaal Radhiallahu anhu used to travel from Syria to visit the grave of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm . Once after the conquest of Damascus, he begged of Khalifa Umar Radhiallahu anhu to allow him to reside there, which Umar granted. He then remained there and married there until he once saw Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm in his dream saying to him: "0 Bilaal, how unfaithful: Does the time not dawn for you to visit me occasionally?" Immediately after seeing this dream Bilaal radhiallahu anhu woke up, greatly distressed and frightened. In quick time he traveled by camel to Madina. Hasan and Husain radhiallahu anhum came to know of his presence and begged of him to recite the Azaan. Seeing them made Bilaal radhiallah very happy and he recited the Azaan. When the people of Madina heard him, men, women and children came out of their houses crying and sobbing, for Bilaal radhiallahu anhu had brought back to memory the days of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm among them. In this we see Bilaal radhiallahu traveling from Syria to Madina for the sole purpose of visiting Nabi Sallallahu Alehi wassalm grave.
2. In Shifa-ul-Asqaam we read that from numerous sources it is reported that Umar bin Abdul Aziz Rehmatullah alehi used to dispatch a man on camel to Madina on various occasions just to greet Nabi Sallallahu Alehi wassalm on his behalf.
3. When Umar Radhiallahu anhu visited Baitul Muqaddas, he was very pleased at the conversion to Islam of a Jewish scholar, Kaab Ahbaar. He thereupon invited him to accompany him to Madina to visit the grave of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm which he did.
4. Once a Taabi'ee, Muhammad bin Ubaidullah bin Amr Al Atabi Rehamatullah alehi visited the grave of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm in Madina. After the greeting at the grave he sat down in one part of the mosque and saw a person, appearing to be a desert Arab, saying: "0 you most honored of all Messengers; Allah had revealed to you the verse: (translation) "And if, when they had wronged themselves, they had come to you and asked forgiveness of sins from Allah; and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them; they would have found Allah Forgiving; Merciful." [Nisaa:64]
Then this person cried bitterly and read a poem: (translation) "O Thou best of those buried in the earth,
Through whom that every earth became honored;
May my life be a sacrifice for that grave wherein thou dwellest
For therein lies virtue and therein lies generosity and goodness."
After this he begged for forgiveness and departed. Muhammed al Atabi says further: "Thereafter, I fell asleep on that spot and in a vision I saw the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alehi wassalm. He said to me: 'Go and find that person and tell him that through my intercession Allah has forgiven him'."
The above poem is mentioned by several writers. Imam Nawawi in his book Manaasik added another couplet:
"Thou art the intercessor whose intercession is desired,
On that bridge when feet are sure to slip;
As for your two companions, them shall I never forget,
Salaam to you Dear Rasulullah for as long as pens can write."
Our Duty is only to deliver the message….
Anees bhai,All Qarjees/Munkere Hadees(Ahle Hadees) always don't understand Quran and Hadees, how do you expect them they will follow quran and Hadees, they will follow only Albani and Abdulwahab Najdi. They have small knowledge if you show them they will not accept because their father Albani and Abdulwahab Najdi did not accept how they will accept. If You meet any Qarjees/Munkere Hadees (Ahle Hadees) you will find there is no noor on thier faces. Jaheleen ko jawab nahi diya jata. Just tell Auzubillahi ann Akona minal jaheleen.You know very well that All kuffar Mushrikeen they asked always daleel with Rasoolullah, same thing Qarjees and Munkere Hadees Ahle Hadees always asking daleel with Sunnies. Now you can understand who are kuffar and mushriks.We are sunnies. If listen any Hadees and Quran we will accept and follow. But Qarjees/Ahle Hadees always they will check daleel and during checking daleel they will die as mushrik die....
