Belief in the Prophet’s Knowledge of the Unseen (Ilm-e-Ghaib) Does Not Render Muslims Non-Believers



By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

The dispute over the issue of the holy prophet’s (peace be upon him) knowledge of the unseen is so serious that it has divided Muslims into two sections. A section believes that the prophet (peace be upon him) did not have the knowledge of the unseen and so those who believe otherwise are Kafirs while the other believes that those who do not have faith in the prophet’s Ilm-e-Ghaib and consider him an ordinary man comes closer to apostasy.

Wahhabi ideologues repeatedly call those who believe in this prophetic virtue as Kafir. They have spread the misleading interpretations of the Quran on the subject among Muslims.  Consequently this has caused a serious schism in the community and it has turned into a major cause of conflict between two sections of the Muslims. Therefore, there is a need to sincerely resolve this important issue related to the prophet’s knowledge of the unseen according to the Quran and Hadith.     

Barring hypocrites, the holy companions never denied the prophet’s unseen knowledge (peace be upon him). The opponents have evolved since Abdul Wahhab mis-contextualized the verses of the holy Quran. This led to conflict and division among Muslims. Initially, Wahhabi propounded ideology was refuted even by Deoband Ulema. Later they, too, started believing the prophet’s knowledge to be equal to theirs.

We need to understand the Quran and Hadiths seeking help from God Almighty. This will lead us to the right conclusion. 

The prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is endowed by God with knowledge of the unseen. So it does not suggest that the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) knowledge was equal to that of Allah. Whatever knowledge the prophet (peace be upon him) had was a gift of God.

Therefore those who have faith in the knowledge of the Prophet (peace be upon him), are not non-believers (kafir). The Qur’an clearly says:

“That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad peace be upon him]”. (3: 44)

“The Knower of Unseen reveals not His secret to anyone. Except to His chosen Messengers” (72: 26)

“Allah has sent down to you the Book and Wisdom and has taught you what you did not know and great is the grace of Allah upon you.” (4:113)

“Nor will He disclose to you the secrets of the Unseen. But He chooses of His Apostles (For the purpose)” (3:179)

The verses quoted above justify that Allah almighty has granted Muhammad (peace be upon him) the knowledge of unseen and so whoever beliefs in it cannot be termed Kafirs.

Now let us analyse some most authentic Hadiths justifying that the prophet has the knowledge of unseen.

During the battle of Badr, the Prophet had already told the names of those pagans who were going to die. He also described how the companions would be martyred. (Sahih Bukhari chapter on the Battle of Badr, Tafsir Ibn Kathir on Surah Luqman Aayat 34)

Imam Bukhari writes: “Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) stood up in one meeting and started telling us about events from the beginning of this world to the end. He told us about the Heaven, the Hell, the people who were going to hell or heaven and what will be their places in heaven and hell. Of course, some people remember what he told us and some people have forgotten. (Bukhari, Chapter Bada-Ul-Khalq) 

“The Munafiqs (hypocrites) made an objection to the knowledge of the Prophet (peace be upon him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) stood on the pulpit and said, “Ask me what you will”. One person stood up and asked, “What will be my place in the Hereafter?” The Prophet replied, “Hell”. Another person whose name was Abdullah bin Huzaifa, (people doubted whether he was a legitimate child), stood up and asked, “Who is my Father?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied, “Your Father is Huzaifa”. (Thus the accusation on Abdullah bin Huzaifa was cleared.) The Prophet (peace be upon him) repeated, “Ask me, ask me”. (Bukhari Kitab-ul-I’tisaam Muslim chap on Fadial] 

“The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) led the Fajr prayer. Then he sat on the pulpit. He, thereafter, informed the people of the unseen things till Zuhar. After Zuhar, he sat on the pulpit and continued the same till Asar, then sat on the pulpit and continued until Maghrib prayer. He even informed of the dwellers of Paradise and Hell”

(Muslim Shareef: chapter of Fadial)

It is clear from the verse above that only hypocrites (Munafiqs) rejected the prophet’s knowledge of the unseen. It is notable that Allah imparted His Prophet more knowledge than anyone else on the earth, which is the belief of every companion (Sahabi).

The following narration from Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal further confirms the Prophet’s knowledge:

“The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated, “I have seen my Lord, He put His hands upon my chest, after which everything appeared before me and I recognized everything”

(Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, vol 5, page 243)

There is a Hadith with identical meanings from Sahih Muslim:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated, “Allah put the earth before me and I saw it from the East to the West” (Muslim, Chapter of Excellence of the Prophet (peace be upon him)

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir and Ibn Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab al Najdi write:

“Suad bin Qarib recited a poem in front of the Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace), “I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah. Allah has made you the trustee over all the unseen knowledge.

(Sirat-un-Nabi and Mukhtasar Sirat ul Rasool, Storey on Swad bin Qariq by Hafidhh Ibn Kathir and Ibn Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab al Najdi)

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes:

A shepherd was with his goats. A wolf came to them, grabbed one goat and fled away. Then the shepherd chased after the wolf to take the goat back. The wolf then spoke to him and said, “Why do you take the food (rizq) provided by Allah for me?” The shepherd was surprised, for the wolf spoke. The wolf again said, “If you are so much astonished that I can speak. You should then go to Madina. You will find the last of the Prophets who can tell you about the Past and the Future”. The shepherd left his goats and went straight to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and mentioned his experience. The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied, “The wolf spoke the truth" (The chain of narrators for this Hadith is Authentic) (Taareekh: Chapter of Miracles of Prophet peace be upon him)

Allama Hafidhh Ibn Hajar Asqalani writes:

“One of the qualities bestowed upon a Prophet is the quality that he knows what has already happened in the past and what will happen in the future”.

(Fathul Bari chapter of the prophets)

The Hadiths quoted above evidently prove the unseen knowledge given to the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

A narration from a companion (Sahabi) and the classical authorities prove even the following narration about Hazrat Khidr’s unseen knowledge.

Ibn Abbas reported that Khidr was such a man who did all his work with the knowledge of the unseen because he knew the unseen (Ghaib)”. (Tafsir Tabari, Tafsir Qurtabi, Tafsir Fathul Qadir, by Imam Tabari, Qurtabi and Qadi Shawkani)

n intellectual mind can easily grasp this fact. When Allah almighty could grant this virtue to Hazrat Khidhr, it was more possible for the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to be given the unseen knowledge.

Now it is essential to clear out the doubts and wrong interpretation aired by Wahabi Ulema.

They think if prophet (peace be upon him) knew about tomorrow, why did he stop the girls during a wedding ceremony from singing a poem about his unseen knowledge?

This refers to the following Hadith:

“On one occasion our Prophet (peace be upon him) went to a wedding. The girls were singing about the battle of Badr. When they saw the Prophet (peace be upon him) coming, they stopped singing about Battle of Badr and started singing, "There is a Prophet among us that knows about tomorrow". The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “keep on singing what you were singing before”. (Miskat chapter: Nikah)

Their doubt came from the Hadith above. But perhaps they do not know the fact that the poems were written by a Companion. If they had been incorrect, the prophet (peace be upon him) would have instructed them not to repeat that.

The poem was right. He stopped them from singing the poem, for there was a wedding celebration. The prophet (peace be upon him) wanted them to sing the poem that they were singing before. Secondly the prophet never wanted to be praised in his own presence.

The major point is that the Quran does not explicitly describe the signs of the doomsday. However, everyone knows something about the day of judgement revealed by our Prophet (peace be upon him). If he did not know the unseen knowledge, how else he could have told us concerning the second coming of Jesus, the Dajjal, and the Mahdi. How he predicted the questions to be asked in the grave, the scales (Meezan) where everyone’s doings will be weighed.

Besides, it is incumbent upon us to ponder over the fact. The prophet told us “this is the Quran”, “that is Kaaba”, “there is God Almighty” all this was the unseen for Muslims. For, no one saw God Almighty except the prophet. Could anyone tell us what Muhammad (peace be upon him) got from Allah Almighty during the night of Heavenly ascension (Shab e Meraj)? No, it is not known to anyone. Even the angel Gabriel could not accompany the prophet till the last destination. We knew only what the prophet (peace be upon him) told us about.  We Muslim Ummah believed in all what Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught us. We don’t know what our prophet did not predict.

Another doubt they put forward is that Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an that there are five things which are unknown to anyone except Allah. The verse is described as follows:

“Undoubtedly, Allah has the knowledge of the Hour, and He sends rain and knows what is in the wombs of the mothers and no soul knows in what land it will die. Undoubtedly, Allah is the Knower, All aware”. (Surah Luqman Verse 34)

The researched work of widely renowned Sufi Ulema sheds light on the subject. According to them the word used in the Quran is “Adri” which refers to the knowledge that can be attained by guessing. All classical Ulema unanimously agree that the prophet (peace be upon him) could not have knowledge by guessing but given by Allah Almighty.

Hafiz Ibne Kathir explains this verse that no one can get the knowledge of these five things on their own struggle. Only Allah can impart this knowledge to anyone whom he wants. For example, Allah bestows this knowledge to the Angels whose duties are to control rain on the command of Allah.

He adds saying that Allah commands an Angel to enter the mother’s womb and hangs a record around the child’s neck what he or she will do in his or her whole life. This knowledge is not gained by the Angel but given by Allah Himself. . (Tafsir Ibn Kathir)

A man of great intelligence can easily understand the contextual meaning. On the contrary, if we literally mean the quoted verse above, it will mean that only Allah is acquainted with what is in the mothers’ womb but today, we can discover quite easily if the child is a male or female by modern scanning techniques.

If the angels can be granted the knowledge of the five Unseen things by Allah, why can’t Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) deserve them as being the most beloved of Allah? Hence it is clear the prophet has the knowledge of the unseen and those who believe so, are not non-believers (Kafir).

  • The problem with you might have occurred due to a passage in Fatawa Qazi Khan, رجل تزوج بغير شهود فقال الرجل والمرءة قالوا يكون كفرا لأنه اعتقد أن رسول الله عليه السلام يعلم الغيب وهو ما كان يعلم الغيب حين كان في الحياة فكيف بعد الموت which implies that if someone marries without witnesses and man and woman say “we consider God and His Messenger as witnesses for our marriage” so they said (qaalu) that such a statement is based on kufr because both have made a belief that the Messenger knows unseen knowledge while he did not know it in his life then how can he know it after demise?”

    The problem with understanding this passage of Qazi khan happened to those who deny ilm al-ghab for the Prophet. Based on this misunderstanding they try to strengthen their argument while they forget that their religious leaders themselves have belief of some unseen knowledge for the Prophet. If belief of unseen knowledge is kufr, then how can their religious guides can save themselves from this kufr?! For instance, Maulvi Ashraf Ali Thaanvi wrote in his Hifz al-Imaan that children, insane, and animals too have some unseen knowledge. Maulvi Khaleel Ahmad in his Baraaheen Qaatiaa justified unseen knowledge for devil (Satan) and Malik al-Maut. Maulvi Qaasim Nanautvi in his Tahzeer al-Naas wrote that the Prophet’s unseen knowledge is more than that of all worlds and all creatures. What would be the ruling on these three personalities who have belief in unseen knowledge? Therefore it would not be beneficial to quote Qazi Khan as an evidence to deny unseen knowledge for the Prophet.

    Qazi Khan used the word ‘qaaalu’ (they said). Numerous jurists have explained that jurists like Qaazi Khan use the word ‘qaalu’ where they dislike the statement. Please see, Shaami vol. 5 p. 445, where it is mentioned that ‘qaalu’ is used where there is controversy. In Ghuniyat al-Mustamli, it is mentioned that Qaazi Khan’s use of ‘qaalu’ refers to his disliking the statement. In several other books of jurists, it is explained that issuing fatwa of kufr on the belief of unseen knowledge for the prophet is wrong. On the contrary the jurists believe that the Prophet does have unseen knowledge, and that is by the blessing of Allah Almighty.

    With this explanation, we must know that Qaazi Khan actually disliked the statement which declares the belief of unseen knowledge to be kufr. The man and woman who consider God and His Messenger as witnesses for their marriage would not be declared Kaafir because the Prophet knows the unseen knowledge. There are two types of verses; one denies zaati ilm al-ghaib for the Prophet and other proves ataati ilm al-ghaib for the Prophet.

    In short, the Prophet has unseen knowledge (attai ilm al-ghab) granted by Allah Almighty and it is not a belief of any Muslims that he has this knowledge equal to God or zaati ilm.

  • It is hard to decide which path and which sect is on the right path on ilmul ghaib at the time of judging their evidences. 
    I have come across some Hanafi ulama who say the belief in unseen knowledge is Kufr. Read Qazi Khan, or Mulla Ali Qari, they have this view.

  • Assalamuwalekum,
    Please never say anyone as Kafir, because no one knows that whether he is on a right path or not.No one can predict that who will go to paradise or hell.You must have believe on your faith that your sect will go to paradise.For this, one must confirm whether he is on the right path or not by checking his/her believes with the Glorius Book of Allah Subhana Wata'allah as well as with the authentic hadees.No one has the right to discriminate any other sect or to say any bad things to others.For e.g. Dr.Zakir Naik.He is an Islamic Scholar, but the shias and other sunnis tell him as Kafir.They would also be on the wrong path, but I dont know whether they are on the right path or not.So brothers and sisters, we should never insult any sect of Islam as Kafir or abue its people.Everyone will come to everything on the Day Of Judgement.But, till it comes, continue with your research on Islam as well as its propogation.
    Lets come to the point.This debate has arousen because of Shaitaan.If we will fight among each other, we will never succeed in our mission and then Shaitaan will succeed.If you all dont want him to succeed in his mission, you all must verify your own faith that whether you all are on the right oath or not.Verily, Allah knows all.So go to a masjid and take out that Glorius Book of Allah Subhana Wata'allah and read it.Also go to an Islamic Library and seethe encyclopedia on the verses of Quran.Take your time for such a wonderful task which will result in your succees on the Day of Judgement.
    And you all people, what you all want to do with the unseen knowledge of Prophet (SA), let it be.This is one the tricks of Shaitaan to divide the international and the most glorius Religion,i.e. Islam.

  • @Imran Malik

    Please try to think of the verses of Quran before blindly using the words like “Bidatees” and “Mushrekeen”. Who is Bidati and who is Mushrik ? Only God knows the best. There are two types of verses; one says that no one knows unseen knowledge but God whereas the other says that God imparts unseen knowledge to the one whom he likes a lot. The question is whether you believe both types of verses or only of them.

     Brother! Please try to understand that no one believes the prophet as equal to Allah in any rank. Whatever you have written in your comment is of merely Wahabi and Tableegi versions of Islam. Not only you but many of our brothers fall prey to such virus in a manner that provoke them to call Muslims, their brothers, “bidatees” and “Mushrekeen”. Please read the article again, but this time, keeping in mind that God Almighty has given this knowledge to the prophet peace be upon him.

    In the following i have elaborated the theme, it may benefit you. After reading it please do write your comments if you have any doubt.        

    God Almighty bestowed the unseen knowledge upon many of his Prophets, according to their prescribed missions. The holy Quran corroborates that:

    About Hazrat Adam pbuh and the Angels, "He (Allah) taught the names (nature and qualitative attributes) of all the things and placed them before the Angels". Surah Baqarah: Verse 31

    About Hazrat Da'ud pbuh "He (Allah) gave Da'ud power and wisdom and taught him whatever (else) He willed." Surah Baqarah: Verse 251

    Regarding Hazrat Sulaiman pbuh the Quran says "O People! We have been taught the speech of the birds, and on us has been bestowed (a little of) all things. "Surah Namal: Verse 16

    Regarding Hazrat Lut pbuh "And to Lut We gave Judgement and Wisdom." Surah Anbiya: Verse 74

    For Hazrat Yaqub pbuh" He was, by Our instructions full of Knowledge (and experience), but most men know not." 19

    For Hazrat Yaqub pbuh himself told his sons about this blessing from Allah thus, "Did I not say to you, I know from Allah that which you know not." Surah Yusuf: Verse 96

    Concerning Hazrat Yusuf pbuh "When Yusuf attained his full manhood, We gave him Power and Knowledge; thus do We reward those who do the right things." Surah Yusuf: Verse 22

    With regard to Hazrat Musa pbuh "When he reached full age and was firmly established (in life), We bestowed on him Wisdom and Knowledge." Surah Qasas: Verse 140

    The holy Quaran says about Hazrat Khizr pbuh "So they found one of our servants on whom We had bestowed Mercy from Ourselves and whom We had taught knowledge (of special significance) from Our Own Presence."  Surah Kah'f: Verse 65

    These pious souls, at times on their own, disclosed this Divine bestowment in order to convince the people and clear their doubts and put them on the right track of faith and Belief.

    For instance Hazrat Jesus pbuh spoke to his followers thus, "And I declare to you whatever you eat and whatever you store in your houses."  Surah Ale Imran: Verse 49

    (It meant that whatever they had eaten in the houses - within four walls - and whatever they had preserved there in, was well known to the Prophet of Allah.

    On another occasion, Hazrat Yusuf pbuh spoke to his fellow prisoners before telling them the meaning of their dreams. He said, "Before any food comes to you, I shall surely reveal to you the truth and meaning of this. It is due to the knowledge bestowed upon me by Allah that I have to reveal to you what you did not know."Surah Yusuf: Verse 37

    All the verses mentioned above clearly guide us that the prophets of God were endowed with knowledge of unseen, let alone the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

  • See Surah Araaf Ayat no 188 The Holy Prophet PBUH Don't know the Knowledge of Ghaib. By the different kinds of revelation Hazrat Muhammad SAWW was promoted ideas in the mind by Allah but Mushrikeen has forgotten Allah Who is Alim ul Ghaib and gave the knowledge by the wahi to Holy Prophet SAWW. Only Allah is the Alim ul Ghaib No one is equal to Allah. But Breliefs of the Mushrikeen and Bidaties are not according to Islam. They have made all the knowledge of Islam Acording to themselves not follow the true knowledge of Islam. Biddat  is the main part of the Brelvies in every part of life from cradle to grave. Every thing was changed by the Brelvies Mushrikeen. He can't follow the same knowledge of Islam because some people many of people doesn't want to speak truth that through it they will have to leave all the wrong doings and their will. they have to leave all the bad tastes of life. Allah Ho Akbar

  • Dear Rational, indeed those who worship the graves are Jahils (ignorant)but in fact do not know how to visit the graves or the holy shrines. Such people do not know even how to offer Namaz. But those who are well known to the fatwa of Ala Hazrat should teach them.  Let me remind you the fatwa of A'LA HAZRAT (RADI ALLAHU ANHU) ON THE VISITING OF MAZAARAAT-E-AULIYA (A Translation of Mas'ala No. 169 on Page 212 Volume 4 of Fatawa Razvia)
    Mas'ala (Question):-Sent by Hafiz Abdur Rahman Rafoogar on 28 Muharram 1332 A.H. from Muhalla Ahaatha Rohilla, Thana Bahloo Poora in Banaras. "My question directed at your office, Oh! Hazrat, is that whilst visiting the Mazaaraat of the Auliya-e-Kiraam, what should be the method of reading Fateha, and what items (Ayaats of the Quraan) ougth to be recited in this Fateha?"
    Al Jawaab (The Answer):-Allah in the Name of, the Compassionate The Merciful. Praise be to Allah and Salutations upon the gracious Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). My dear Hafiz Saheb, Peace be upon You!
    When one enters the Holy Shrines (Mazaaraat of Auliya-e-Kiraam) one should do so from the foot end (i.e. the feet side of the Wali), and as far as possible one should maintain one's presence at a distance of four hand lengths (from the foot end). Thereafter, in a moderate voice, one should announce Salaams (greetings) in the following way:- "As Salaamu Alaikum! Ya Sayyidi ! Wa Rahmatullahi Wa barakaatuhu." Then, the following should be recited:-
    (1) Durood-e-Ghausia - 3 Times; (2) Sura Fateha - Once; (3) Ayatul Kursi - Once; (4) Sura Ikhlaas - 7 times; (5) Durood Ghausia - 7 times
    If time permits, Surah Yaseen and Surah Mulk may also be recited before supplication (making Dua) to Almighty Allah in the following manner, "Oh! Allah! In lieu of what I have just recited, grant me that volume of reward (Sawaab) which is worthy of Your generosity, and not that amount which is worth of my actions, and deliver from me to Your chosen servant (i.e. The Wali in whose Mazaar one is present) the every same reward."
    Thereafter, one should supplicate (make Dua) to Almighty Allah for any request which is permissible by Shariat, by pleading with Almighty Allah that He grants acceptance of the Dua with the mediation (Waseela) of the Holy Soul of the Wali. In the same manner as before, one should announce the Salaam and return.

  • Dear Ratioanl, you say “I can find similar stupid beliefs in your Sufi books. Don't you believe in stupid ideas of Aala Hazrat”

    I think those who are smart, rational and logical do not think others are stupid.  As for Ala Hazrat (ra), every second of his life was fully dedicated to the cause of Islam. He taught us a lesson of undivided love for the Holy Prophet (pbuh) stressing that love for the beloved prophet (pbuh) is the cornerstone of faith.  The title of A’la Hazrat (ra) was given to him on his first visit to Arabia, where his extraordinary personality moved even the greatest learned scholars in Arabia and they unanimously declared Imam Ahmad Raza Khan (ra) to be not just an ordinary ‘Hazrat’ but an ‘A’la Hazrat’ – a great Hazrat. The number of books written by AlaHadrat Imam Ahmad Rida Khan (RA) exceeds 1000 on more than 50 branches of Knowledge. In addition to these contributions, he wrote annotations and commentaries on more than 150 books pertaining to various branches of learning.

    Dear Rational, for further information, I would suggest you and readers to go through the unprecedented books written by Ala Hazrat (ra). I hope after that at least you will not call Ala Hazrat(ra) in the derogatory way.

  • Dear Sufi Biradran
    "i want to say to rational mohamamd yunus.  If, you go any wahabi mosque in Karachi and listen their speeches, you will notice that 70% of their speeches circle around and point out the shirk conducted by sunnis and shias."
    I visited some Barailvi Mosques in India where only concern is how to make every Bida a Sunnah. period.

    Hz Mohammed said something like this "don't start to make my graves a place of worship like Yahhod -o-Nasara".
    Why you people make this issue? Why there should be a tamasha on the Graves? How many common Barailvis follow the Adaab-e-ziyarat-e-Quboor you stated in one comment quoting Fatawa Rizvia.
    Most of the shrine visitors are unaware of the intricacies of your belief system. They only know that they must ask help from the people lying in these graves.
    My dear  these are dead people who can't move their toes in their graves.

  • Dear Ashiqe Mustufa - 6/22/2013 12:16:06 AM

    Mr GM I think ignores Ahadith because he thinks these are fabricated accounts and put Islam in difficult situation. He abhors the details stated in Ahadith and life accounts of Hz Mohammed. He focuses on broad ideas of the Quran/Islam not details like you. He is indeed a protector of honor of the prophet without adding PBUH.
    Mr Sadaf has said it in the best way. If you are a believer in every Hadith and think there is some wisdom in every Hadith you will never have that opportunity.

    By rational mohammed yunus - 6/22/2013 7:47:08 PM

  • Dear GHULAM GHAUS غلام غوث - 6/21/2013 11:37:20 PM
    I agree with you. Devbandis indded have written such stuff.
    But how are you different? I can find similar stupid beliefs in your Sufi books. Don't you believe in stupid ideas of Aala Hazrat.
    Let me remind you. You owe an Article on cosmology in the Quran and Ahadith.
    Read the Gems stated by Dr Shabbir in "Criminals of Islam". Are not Sufis boasters of first grade. I frequently read the Aqwaal of Sufis?
    Sufism is nothing but alien plant in the soil of Islam.
    What if your peeron ka peer puts his foot on the neck of other peers.
    Do you really believe Hz Shams Tabrez roasted his piece of meat when the Sun lowered itself near to earth and Hz Tabrez blessed the Quraishi Biradri because they only gave him that piece of meat.

  • Every human being is treated as equal as, if not more than, the others among the creatures of God Almighty. But those who do good deeds with others have greater ranks in Islam. So why not do good deeds with others?

  • Thanks Sadaf dost, i will wait for that opportunity when dear ghulam mohiuddin sahib will make me his well wisher for his defense done for Islam.

  • Dear Mr. Ashique Mustafa, Mr. Ghulam Mohiyuddin is a very respectable person and he has always defended the ideas of Islam and the honour of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). You have to follow someone for sometime to get what he is actually saying. Manners and words are all superficial things. Please try to see the intent.
    By sadaf - 6/22/2013 1:32:23 AM

  • i agree with you dear sadaf but the way mr ghulam mohiuddin sahib speaks as if he has no manner to deal with the Hadiths.
