Guidance of the Sincere Advisors in Clarifying the Condition of some Indian Brothers

Introduction

From the pearls of guidance of the Prophet is this narration on the authority of Anas bin Mālik -may Allāh be pleased with him-

”اصْبِرُوا، فَإِنَّهُ لاَ يَأْتِي عَلَيْكُمْ زَمَانٌ إِلاَّ الَّذِي بَعْدَهُ شَرٌّ مِنْهُ، حَتَّى تَلْقَوْا رَبَّكُمْ ‏“
“Be patient till you meet your Lord, for no time will come upon you but the time following it will be worse than it.

Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 7068

Indeed from the great tribulations upon us is that which has spread vastly and widely among the Muslim Ummah from splitting in their ranks into groups and partisanship.

{فَتَقَطَّعُوٓا۟ أَمْرَهُم بَيْنَهُمْ زُبُرًا ۖ كُلُّ حِزْبٍۭ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ فَرِحُونَ}

“But they (men) have broken their religion among them into sects, each group rejoicing in what is with it (as its beliefs).”

Surah al-Mu’minun 23:53

Especially in our times where the nets of Ḥizbiyyah have been beautified by its people, in the form of discreet principles aimed to aid their deviations from the Sunnah, thus many a people have been misguided due to it.

And in such times, safety and security is for the one who returns the affairs to the trustworthy scholars, while there does not cease to exist from fitnah-mongers and majāhīl (unidentified individuals), those who blame the Ahlus-Sunnah for speaking without knowledge and exceeding the limits and reducing these errors in Manhaj to mere “ego clashes”.

{وَإِذَا جَاءَهُمْ أَمْرٌ مِّنَ الْأَمْنِ أَوِ الْخَوْفِ أَذَاعُوا بِهِ ۖ وَلَوْ رَدُّوهُ إِلَى الرَّسُولِ وَإِلَىٰ أُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْهُمْ لَعَلِمَهُ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَنبِطُونَهُ مِنْهُمْ ۗ وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ لَاتَّبَعْتُمُ الشَّيْطَانَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا}

“When there comes to them some matter touching (public) safety or fear, they make it known (among the people), if only they had referred it to the Messenger or to those charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have understood it from them (directly). Had it not been for the Grace and Mercy of Allah upon you, you would have followed Shaitan (Satan), save a few of you.”

Sūrah an-Nisāʾ 4:83

Hence, this is a small effort, seeking by it the face of Allāh ﷻ and closeness to him, to gather some of the advices of the scholars and students of knowledge regarding some deceptive individuals smitten by Ḥizbiyyah, we ask Allāh ﷻ for safety from deviance after guidance.

Purpose

From the compelling reasons that led to putting together this compilation are:

  • Request from several brothers to clarify the condition of these individuals. As the Prophet ﷺ said in the hadīth narrated by Abu Hurairah -may Allāh be pleased with him- regarding the six rights of a Muslim over another:

If he asks for advice, give him sincere advice

Muslim 2162
  • A reminder and a warning to those brothers who have very unfortunately been following their desires; to accept the sincere advice of the scholars, repent and make tawbah as Allah ﷻ says:

{وَلَوْ شِئْنَا لَرَفَعْنَاهُ بِهَا وَلَٰكِنَّهُ أَخْلَدَ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ وَاتَّبَعَ هَوَاهُ ۚ فَمَثَلُهُ كَمَثَلِ الْكَلْبِ إِن تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْهِ يَلْهَثْ أَوْ تَتْرُكْهُ يَلْهَث ۚ ذَّٰلِكَ مَثَلُ الْقَوْمِ الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا ۚ فَاقْصُصِ الْقَصَصَ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ}

And had We willed, We would surely have elevated him therewith but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his description is the description of a dog: if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls his tongue out. Such is the description of the people who reject Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). So relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect.”

Sūrah al-Aʿrāf 7:176
  • Gathering the advices which are scattered in multiple locations for the ease of the one seeking the truth as Abu Burda -may Allah be pleased with him- reported: The Messenger of Allah, ﷺ, said:

يَسِّرَا وَلَا تُعَسِّرَا وَبَشِّرَا وَلَا تُنَفِّرَا وَتَطَاوَعَا وَلَا تَخْتَلِفَا

Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people. Cooperate with each other and do not become divided.

Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 3038
  • Advice to those exposed to the fitnah of these individuals due to Allāh’s ﷻ saying:

{يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ جَاءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوا أَنْ تُصِيبُوا قَوْمًا بِجَهَالَةٍ فَتُصْبِحُوا عَلَى مَا فَعَلْتُمْ نَادِمِينَ}

O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done”

Surah al-Ḥujurat 49:6

We ask Allāh ﷻ to put barakah into it and grant it acceptance amongst His slaves.

Conclusion

We truly hope that Allāh ﷻ brings benefit and clarity through these words of advice, which the basis of it is the Qur’an and the Sunnah, for those who are seeking it sincerely, and the tawfīq is from Allāh alone. Also, we ask Allāh ﷻ to preserve our Mashayikh, the Scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah, whose guidance resembles the moonlight on a dark night.

Let us take heed from the speech of Al-Ḥasan al-Baṣrī -may Allah have mercy on him- when he said:

«إِنَّ هَذِهِ الْفِتْنَةَ إِذَا أَقْبَلَتْ عَرَفَهَا كُلُّ عَالِمٍ، وَإِذَا أَدْبَرَتْ عَرَفَهَا كُلُّ جَاهِلٍ»
“When the fitnah draws near, it is recognized by every ʿālim (knowledgeable one), and when it has retreated it is recognized by every jāhil (ignorant one).”

Ibn Saʿd, al-Ṭabaqāt al-Kubrá 7/165

As for the Ghāfil (heedless one), he does not recognise the tanbīhāt and the ishārāt and the tawdīhāt due to his Ghaflah and his Jahl. So he is afflicted, falls neck deep into the fitnah, his Īmān is battered and shaken and he exits from it a deviant except for the one whom Allāh سبحانه و تعالى had mercy upon.

“فسوف ترى إذا انكشف الغبارُ أفرس تحت رجلك أم حمارُ”

“You will soon see, when the dust settles, whether it was a horse that you were riding or a donkey.”

نسأل الله العون والسداد

سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك وأشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت وأستغفرك وأتوب إليك
