Deobandi Ulama/Peers Giving Bayaans And Majaalis in Berelwi Masaajid

Question ID: 17467

South African Deobandi ‘Ulama and Peers (who are the khulafa of senior Shuyookh from India) are now giving bayaans and holding Majaalis in Berelwi Masaajid.

It interesting to note the this is being done by those very same Deobandi ‘Ulama/Peers who had started off the Rabiul Awwal ‘Seerah Conferences’ several years ago and the same ones who conduct loud halqah zikr in the Masjid.

I understand that this issue of Deobandi Ulama/Peers giving bayaans and Majaalis in Berelwi Masaajid is probably not something that requires a new fatwa.

1. What is the fatwa of Hadhrat Mufti Rashid Ahmed Gangohi (Rahmatullahi Alayh), Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullahi Alayh), Hadhrat Shaikh-ul-Hind (Rahmatullahi Alayh) or any of the other Akaabir Ulama on this?

Confusion is now also caused for us laypeople. We know that Salaah behind Bid’atis, Qabar Poojaris and Salaami-singers is not right at all – and only done out of need when no alternative Masjid is available.

2. What is the ruling on traveling specifically to a Bid’ati Masjid and performing Salaah behind a Bid’ati Imaam, all with the intention of listening to the bayaan of a Deobandi Aalim/Peer in that same Bid’ati Masjid?

3. What is the ruling on Deobandi ‘Ulama attending Berelwi Moulood parties in the Masjid to give a bayaan, but not actually participate in the Salaami itself? A Deobandi Aalim in KZN has actually done this sometime ago; I have heard it from the Aalim himself as though nothing was wrong in this action.

4. Why do Deobandi Ulama/Peers see the need to associate with Bid’atis?

5. How should errant Deobandi Ulama/Peers be corrected? What can the layman do?

6. Can it be said that if this issue is not corrected then over time Deobandi Ulama/Peers will start giving bayaans in Shia and Qadiyani Temples?

7. Please comment on this whole issue.

1) These great Ulema will associate with Bidatis, let alone go to their gatherings to give bayaans.

2) One should not go.
3) If it is going to allow one to present the Haqq then the Aalim should go. Should NOT participate in any Bidat action.

4) Perhaps with the intention of winning them over to the path of the Ahlus Sunnat wal Jamaat.

5) This has already taken place. But we make Duaa that this does not occur again. Certain individuals do various non-conforming acts which have eventually adverse results. Then the whole Jamaat has to bear the brunt of such un-Islaamic actions. Perpetrators justify leaving the non-Ulema, simple masses in utter chaos and confusion. Generally those Ulema will do acts which have no Shaari bases who have some sort of financial support from few persons or have gained leverage from crowds.
It is safe to constantly seek guidance from the Ulema-e-Haqqanni – Rabbaani who tread the ‘Maslack’ (fact) of Ulema-e-Deoband as expounded by the founding elders especially Moulana Qasim Nanotwi (A.R.), Moulana Rashid Ahmed Gangohi (A.R.), Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (A.R.), Moulana Hussein Ahmed Madani (A.R.), Moulana Khalid Ahmed Saharanpuri (A.R.).
May Allaah grant us understanding of Deen and ability to act on Pure Sunnat.
