Deobundi mufties and ‘Mawlid’

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Wednesday 13th June, 2007

A deobundi mufti says; Mawlid in itself is permitted however due to the way it is practiced normally today one should avoid Mawlid gatherings.  i wonder what he means by “the way it is practiced today“..?? it would’ve been more understandable if he gave a few examples.

what a lame excuse for a mufti. I’m sure i read somewhere where it gave a reference to ibn abidin (i think), where it has been stated, when asked about visiting the graves of the awliya even though a lot of people are committing a lot of unjust practices there that “you should not stop/avoid visiting the graves becoz others are committing impermissible acts there”. we could safely take that to mean ,we should continue to visit the graves in the manner according to the shariah and should not stop becoz others are doing it in an unacceptable way. **But according to the deobandi (madhaab) if a few/minority of muslims are practicing something in an unacceptable way, then the whole ummah should avoid/abandon the practice and brand it as haram and so forth, in order to observe caution.** Read the rest of this entry »

Abu Dawud : Book 28 : Number 3884

Amr Ibn Shu’aib RadhiAllahu ‘anhu says,  

RasoolAllah (Sallallahu’ alaihi wa sallam) taught my Father and grandFather a Du’a which we would read before going to sleep, to protect us from fear and anguish.  We told our elder children to recite this Du’a before going to sleep as well.  But for those children who were not yet literate, we would write it and then put it around their necks.

This shows that it is perfectly ok to wear an amulet as long as it is of an Islamic nature & in accordance to Islamic shariah.

There are numerous hadith where sayyidina rasoolullah (saw) has instructed muslims not to use them, but Read the rest of this entry »
