Maulana Nadeem-ul-Wajidi responds to the Fatawahs of Kufr against Dr. Zakir Naik
Translated from Urdu by Raihan Nezami, NewAgeIslam.com
A number of Fatawahs have been issued against Dr. Zakir Naik. The Muftees of Deoband had said that he should not be trusted but the Barailwees have crossed all limits. They have asserted that he should be dealt like an infidel "Kafir" and should be excluded from the Muslim community. This was stated by a Barailwee Mufti of Lucknow and it has not been opposed by any of the learned persons of Barailwee thought. The concerned Mufti has demanded from the government to put a ban on the PEACE channel of Dr. Zakir Naik and the fund he is raising should be examined but there is no mention of the wrong beliefs on which basis this Fatwah is issued. Of course it said that he is provoking the young Muslims for terrorism and he favours Osama bin Laden. The question is not whether he is doing this or not. The question is: even if the two charges are authentic or even if any of the two allegations is correct, should he be excluded or banished from Islam or not? If it is correct that Dr. Zakir Naik supports terrorism, the law should take its course but it is not for the Muftiyan to deliver judgments.
The general belief is that Dr. Zakir Naik is working for the religion Islam (Deen) amongst the Non-Muslims. His main endeavour is to clear the doubts in the minds of the learned Non-Muslims by explaining the objections and questions raised against the Islamic practices of Sunnah in a scientific and logical manner and comparing them with the teachings of other religions. He has performed very successful debates against the scholars of the Hindus, Christians and Jews etc. before large congregations of people. But for some time, Muslim scholars have felt that he has been favouring unacceptable liberty in Islamic teachings and rules. In particular, his opinions on many critical issues go against the Fiqh Hanfiah. Sometimes, he engages in unnecessary discussions and arguments. For Example, to add " Raziallah Anho" with the name of YAZEED is such a topic that should have been left alone.His status should be left for Allah Kareem to decide as it is a fruitless talk for the scholars and common Muslims. The Shias are annoyed with him because of this.
The work he is doing, however, is really exceptional and incomparable. The work of invitation to Islam is really very difficult and there is every possibility of deviation from the faith as this is a large and bottomless topic. The preachers should not involve themselves into the topics of the differences of different thoughts of school (Maslak). He was appreciated till he confined his speeches within the topic but he was condemned by the religious scholars as soon as he transgressed the limit and interfered in the practices of the Quran-e-Kareem and Sunnah as he has no right to criticize and judge the matters of Fiqh and interpretation of Islamic law. This is the job of the learned and authentic scholars of Islam. For example, he permits to touch the Quran-e Kareem without ablution whereas the majority of the scholars do not permit to do so and the Quran itself confirms it.
"La yamassahu – illa – almotahharoon" (Al-Waqiah: 79)
Dr. Zakir Naik thinks, if the touching of the Quran Kareem is prohibited without ablution, the work of religious reformation will be affected as it will be impossible to give the samples of the Quran-e-Kareem to the non-Muslims. He wouldn't have worried about this, had he been well-versed in the religious doctrine of Fiqh according to which these conditions apply only to Muslims and the non-Muslims are allowed to touch the Quran-e-Kareem without ablution as well. There are certain contradictions, found in his book of lectures, in the explanations of some Aayat of the Quran-e-Kareem which do not match with the Quran –e-kareem and Hadees Shareef. So it is required of him that he should present the opinions of the Sahaba-e-Karam, their disciples and Islamic scholars while explaining Qurani Aayat. In case, he is not satisfied, he should contact religious scholars of Islam. I have requested him verbally and in writing also not to indulge in such interpretations and instead simply to focus on his topic. I don't know if he would pay heed to my request or not. Even so there is no reason why he should be banished or excluded from Islam on account of his comment, opinions and thinking.
Looking into the past we find that once a great controversy was raised against the Late Sir Syed Ahmed khan also. Deputy Emdad Ali Akbar Abadi and Ali Baksh Badauni had obtained Fatwah-e-kufr against Late Sir Syed Ahmed khan from Maulana Abdul Hayee Firangi Mahlee and Mufti Sa'd-ul-Allah Muradabadi which raised a great hue and cry throughout the country against him. The founder of Dar-ul-Uloom Deoband, Hazrat Maulana Mohammad Qasim Nanautawee was not happy with this controversy rather he wanted to give some suggestions to Late Sir Syed Ahmed khan. The exchange of words between them in this regard has been published in a book named "Tasfiyat-ul-Aqaed". Hazrat Maulana Mohammad Qasim Nanautawee never mentioned him as an infidel "Kafir" or "Fasiq". He just said, " I firmly believe in his great endeavour and mission with a sorrowful heart for the believers of Islam and it is fully justified if I express my love and gratitude for this custodian of the Muslims, but equally, or, may be, more than that I am in my heart feeling hurt by his tainted beliefs. (Tasfiyat-ul-Aqaed, P-5).
Actually, there always has been a section amongst the Muslims which considers exclusion from the sphere of Islam for its opponents as the only solution rather than defeating the opposition by factual proofs and arguments. There was hardly any renowned person in the undivided India left who was not labelled an infidel "Kafir" Their factories of infidel-manufacture did not only make kafir out of the scholars of Deoband only but many renowned preachers and reformists throughout the world were also denounced by this section as kafir. Their books are full of such denunciations. Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, a revolutionary poet, had expressed his anguish and pain in 1956 through this Qat'ah.
Since the light of denunciation as Kafir has burst out of Barailee, its effects and reflections are apparent and noticeable everywhere. They are happy to denounce any Muslims of India and exclude them from Islam even if they slightly differ from them.)
Now-a-days avid practitioners of Kafir-manufacturers and their followers are freely passing judgments with wilful misinterpretation, though this is a very complicated matter and we should fear Allah Kareem before delivering judgments in this regard and calling someone infidel "Kafir" or "Murtid".
According to Hadees Sharif, (Nobody should call anyone infidel "Kafir" or "Fasiq", in case, infidelity "Kufr" is not found in him, the word infidelity "Kufr" will return to him)
According to one Tradition, once the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, "Any statement given by your brother, don't try to consider it false till you can extract good sense out of it. (Dar-e-Mansoor)
Books of Fiqh present this as a rule that on questions of infidelity or "Kufr", if there are 99 points of suspicion of infidelity "Kufr" and there is only one point against the infidelity "Kufr", the Mufti and the Qazi should act in accordance with that one point.
Hakeem-ul-Ummat Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwee has explained in this connection, "If there are 99 signs of infidelity "Kufr" in any statement and one sign of "Iman", the judgment of Iman will be delivered and not that of the infidelity "Kufr". This is the rule for the judgment of infidelity "Takfeer" that no one should be considered as an infidel "Kafir" till even the tiniest part of "Iman" is left in him.
(Al-Azafat-Alyaumiah, 341/9, Emdad-al-Falawah, V-4, P-393)
There is a very popular incident related to Hazrat Osama (rbuh) in the Hadees Shareef.
Once in a battlefield, an enemy of the Islam recited "Kalma-e-Tauheed" as soon as Hazrat Osama rb attacked him thinking that Hazrat Osama would forgive him and spare his life, but the latter killed him even after his reciting "Kalma-e-Tauheed". When the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) heard about this incident, he asked Hazrat Osama (rbuh) why he killed him even after reciting "Kalmah-e-Tauheed". He replied that he had killed many Muslims and had accepted "Islam" just to save his life. The Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) asked him if he had opened his heart to see if he had accepted "Islam" because of fear or devotion to the God. If his "Kalma-e-Tauheed" will come to you as a pleader (Muddayee) on the Day of Judgment, what will be your answer? Hazrat Osama said, "O messenger of Allah Kareem, please pray for my forgiveness". But the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) kept repeating the same. On hearing this Hazrat Osama (rbuh) wished to have embraced "Islam" on that very day so that all his earlier sins including this would have been pardoned because of the conversion.
Our learned Islamic scholars took great care in delivering the "Fatwa of Kufr (infidelity) ". Hazrat Imam Abu Haneefa (rbuh) had made this rule and decree (we should not condemn as kafir the people of Qibla). He asserted that no one can be considered infidel "Kafir" till he refuses the Oneness of Allah Kareem and the existence of his Messenger Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him). Hakeem-ul-Ummat Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwee has said, "Kafir (infidel) is a very hateful word, so its use should be avoided. Someone can be called infidel "Kafir" only when he is undoubtedly working against the Oneness of Allah Kareem and Islam. For example, if someone has indulged in idol worshipping but if someone hates idol-worshipping and recites "Kalma-e-Tauheed" , then how can we deny his status as Muslim and call him infidel "Kafir"? (Al-Islam-ul-Haqeeqee, P-454)
The greatest Imam Hazrat Imam Abu Haneefa (rbuh) was a great Mujtahid. But he was very cautious in this matter. Once someone asked what his opinion was about a person who openly denies the punishment of Hell and declares that no infidel "Kafir" will enter the Hell. He asked the opinion of his followers. All of them frankly replied that such a person was an infidel "Kafir" who denied the Truth of the Quran. It is clearly mentioned in the Quran that the infidels "Kuffar" will reside in the Hell but this person says that no infidel "Kafir" will enter the Hell.
Hazrat Imam Abu Haneefa (rbuh) said that the apparent meaning of his speech was the same but it can be seen in another sense also. He might have meant by saying that nobody will remain infidel "Kafir" before entering Hell because the Truth will be exposed on the Day of Judgment even to the infidel "Kuffars". They will also accept the existence of Heaven and Hell and believe in the presence of the Prophets. (Peace be upon them). In this way, it is correct that the dwellers of the Hell will not remain infidel "Kafir" or "Munkir". It is another thing that faith won't be profit them at that time. See, how much patience Hazrat Imam Abu Haneefa (rbuh) maintained although he was speaking about a case of pure infidelity "Kufr". (Al-Islam-ul Haqeeqee, P-456).
On the one hand, Hazrat Imam Abu Haneefa (rbuh) maintains so much care in matters of declaring infidelity "Kufr", and on the other hand, those who claim to be his followers are just looking for any objectionable point in the speeches and articles of their opposition so that they get a chance to deliver their Fatwah of infidelity (Kufr) upon them and create another kafir. By the grace of Allah Kareem, our eminent scholars fully believed in the practice and system of Hazrat Imam Abu Haneefa (rbuh). Hakeem-ul-Ummat Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwee has expressed his routine practice in this way," I receive many complaints asking for the Fatwah of infidelity "Kufr" in various situations and statements. I often reply that this statement is of uncultured behaviour, this person is uncivilized, he has committed a great sin but not the infidelity "Kufr". I fear pronouncing the word infidel "Kafir" because such a verdict will exclude him from the great "rahmat" of Allah-e-Kareem whose sea of mercy and forgiveness is fathomless (Al-Islam-ul Haqeeqee, P-458). Once in a conference, someone said that the Barailwee people call us infidels "Kafirs", why should we also not call them infidel "Kafir"? Hazrat Thanwee said there must be some reason for calling someone infidel "Kafir". He asked them: “What reasons do you have for it?” That person presented many reasons but he rejected all the reasons. Someone asked if they could offer prayer behind the Barailwees. He replied in affirmative. (Kamalat Ashrafiah, P-384)
On the other hand, if any Deobandi scholar offers the funeral prayers of a dead Barailwee Muslim, the prayer is not only repeated but those who offered prayers behind him are also asked for renewal of 'Tauheed and Nikah. Is it justified? We should try to make peace even with our enemies, not to create foes out of our friends at this critical juncture.
In the present time, Islam is gaining popularity among the masses of the world as a perfect way of life and those who are bestowed good sense by Allah Kareem are entering into Islam in large numbers. A large number of devoted Muslims are working for the welfare and popularity of Islam, but some of us are running the kafir-manufacturing factories and trying to label as kafir those who are already bestowed with the true knowledge of Islam.
Such deviated people should try to ponder over their thinking and the ways of dealing with such critical matters. The difference of opinion in the interpretation of spiritual Islamic matters is quite possible but such differences should be sorted out by perfect spiritual and factual reasons and Islamic knowledge in the light of the Quran Kareem and Hadees Shareef, not by denouncing and giving decrees of infidelity (Kufr, Shirk and Fajoor).

Maulana Nadim Ul Wajidi and other Barelwi or Debandi Mushids have no doubt spent most of their lives studying Fiqh and Sunnah and are VERY LEARNED in thier fields but NOT ONE, not a SINGLE ONE has come out boldly to stand on an international platform to present Islam as it truly is, WITH CORRECT references and NO PERSONAL innovations. Do you know how many thosands or millions of INTERNATIONAL ( including non Muslim) audience Dr Zakir has ? He has virtually lifted the veil from non- Muslims eyes and they all see Islam in all it's beauty and grandeur, which NONE of our great learned people have done. These so called Fatwas have no meaning and no basis. They are just meant to polish ones' own ego into saying that " I know more than Dr Zakir..." . May Allah Subhanau grant His divine protection to Dr Zakir and increase his life to let him continue his exemplary work.
Fatawa is the openion of an individual, it is not the decision of an authority.
Several so called Muftis are issuing such Fatawa, for the reasons best known to them.
We must not pay attention to such Muftis.
There are a series of the fatwas of kufr against Dr.Zakir Naik. But there is no fatwa against someone like Sultan Shahin who favours " Indian Ulema have no time to lose, must call warlike Quranic surahs obsolete." So in the eyes of Sultan Shahin parts of the Quran are irrelevant and obsolete. It is the act as similar as yazid followed by disregarding Quranic teachings. M.J. Akbar is also of same creed.
What do you (opponents of Zakir Naik) say, the so-called champions of quran-o-sunnat about this?
I totally agree with Barellvi moulvi's fatwa against Dr. Zakir Naik because he stated that Prophet Mohmmed(p.b.uh) was a common man and we cannot get vasila from him.Tablighi jamaat and other related firka are acting to remove faith for Hadhrat Muhammed (p.b.u.h) from the heart of Muslim and all is being done with the help of Saudi petro dollars.
Ismail Dahelvi, Rashid Ahmed Gangohi and Asraf Ali Thanvi had written in their books against the faith and trust with rasul allah ..and it is intolerable.
Barelvi Muslim whose leader was Imam Ahmed Raza always gave challenge for debate and again all the moulvis of Bareli sunni giving challenge for debate for your question regarding Huzure Pak's ilme gaib,hazir and nazir,journey for shab e meraj.
If u are ready for debate I openly challenge your moulvi to come on.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Visible and Invisible Auliya/Scholars
Islaam teaches to respect teachers and specially those who are teaching Islaam for FREE and asking NO money for this service
Listen to all BUT follow the truth
Musa (pbuh) was a visible Prophet/Messenger while Khizr (pbuh) was an invisible prophet; similarly after Rasool Allah (saw), we have visible and invisible Auliyas (Scholars) and you must obey them as long as they follow the Quraan and Authentic Sunnah. Please do not underestimate this person (Auliya/Scholar) if he/she is among your relatives or friends by behaving as if Home Grown Chicken is the same as Lentil (Chick Peas/ Daal) (GHAR KEE MURGHEE DAAL BRAABER), because Allah may question you on this mater. You must have a positive attitude for religious issue.
It was revealed to Musa (Moses) (pbuh) that there is a man who has vast knowledge than him, Moses (pbuh) prayed to Allah about his willing to meet the person (Hazrat Khizr p.b.u.h), then he was ordered to make a journey, take a cooked fish and you will meet him (Hazrat Khizr p.b.u.h.) at the place where this fish will missing. Musa (pbuh) started his journey to search for Hazrat Khizr (pbuh) and on how he met him and what are the reasons behind the three acts done by Khizr (pbuh), please read this interesting and meaningful story. (Taken from Al_Quraan_018:060-082)
And every nation had a messenger; so when their messenger came, the matter was decided between them with justice and they shall not be dealt with unjustly. (Al_Quraan_010.047)
Surely those who disbelieve in Allah and His messengers and (those who) desire to make a distinction between Allah and His messengers and say: We believe in some and disbelieve in others, and desire to take a course between (this and) that. These it is that are truly unbelievers, and We have prepared for the unbelievers a disgraceful chastisement. (Al_Quraan_004.150-151)
Also after the Rasool Allah (saw), who was the Last and Final Prophet/Messenger, Allah put the responsibility on the whole Ummah, some for Full Time Dawah and the rest for Part Time Dawah:
You are the best of peoples (doing Part Time Dawah), evolved for mankind, enjoining (order) what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book had faith, it was best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors. (Al_Quraan_003.110)
And from among you there should be a party (doing Full Time Dawah like Scholars, Ulemaas, Auliyas) who invite to good and enjoin what is right and forbid the wrong, and these it is that shall be successful. (Al_Quraan_003.104)
Shaitans descend on Disbelievers by Whispering etc., BUT Angels are with the True Believers:
Shall I inform you (of him) upon whom the Shaitans descend? They descend on every sinful, false one. SHAKIR: They descend upon every lying, sinful one, They incline their ears, and most of them are liars. And as to the poets, those who go astray follow them. Do you not see that they wander about bewildered in every valley? (Al_Quraan_026.221-225)
(As for) those who say: Our Lord is Allah, then continue in the right way, the angels descend upon them (True Believers), saying: Fear not, nor be grieved, and receive good news of the garden which you were promised. We are your guardians in this world's life and in the hereafter, and you shall have therein what your souls desire and you shall have therein what you ask for: A provision from the Forgiving, the Merciful. (Al_Quraan_041.030-032)
You must obey (always yes sir) those Auliyas/Scholars, who are sincerely doing goodwill in the light of the Quraan and Authentic Sunnah. Please do not underestimate this person (Auliya/Scholar) if he/she is among your relatives or friends by behaving as if Home Grown Chicken is the same as Lentil (Chick Peas/ Daal) (GHAR KEE MURGHEE DAAL BRAABER), because Allah may question you on this mater. You must have a positive attitude for religious issue. Islaam teaches to respect teachers and specially those who are teaching Islaam for FREE and asking NO money for this service.
And withhold yourself with those who call on their Lord morning and evening desiring His goodwill, and let not your eyes pass from them (always yes sir, till they follow the Quraan and Really Authentic Sunnah), desiring the beauties of this world's life; and do not follow him whose heart We have made unmindful to Our remembrance, and he follows his low desires and his case is one in which due bounds are exceeded. (Al_Quraan_018.028)
Those who, should We establish them in the land, will keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and enjoin good and forbid evil; and Allah's is the end of affairs. (Al_Quraan_022.041)
O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority (Auliya/Leader/Scholar) from among you; then if you quarrel about anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you believe in Allah and the last day; this is better and very good in the end. (Al_Quraan_004.059)
And from the remote part of the city there came a man running, he said: O my people! follow the messengers; Follow him who does not ask you for reward (Teaching Islaam for FREE), and they are the followers of the right course; (Al_Quraan_036:020-021)
Muslims must respect Aulyias/Scholars and must not think of making fun of them:
O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others: It may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let some women laugh at others: It may be that the (latter are better than the (former): Nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming is a name connoting wickedness, (to be used of one) after he has believed: And those who do not desist are (indeed) doing wrong. (Al_Quraan_049.011)… Make not the revelations of Allah a laughing stock (by your behavior), but remember Allah’s grace upon you and that which He hath revealed unto you of the Scripture and of wisdom, whereby He doth exhort you. Observe your duty to Allah and know that Allah is Aware of all things. (Al_Quraan_002.231)Surely they who are guilty used to laugh at those who believe. And when they passed by them, they winked at one another. And when they returned to their own followers they returned exulting (used to joke). And when they saw them, they said: Most surely these are in error (astray). (Al_Quraan_083.029-032)
Blindly Believing on Scholar is Shirk:
Great Thanks to our Scholars (Ulemaa, Auliya), who worked extremely hard to keep Islaam ALIVE and to keep us Muslims by providing Beautiful knowledge of Islaam. BUT Scholars are NOT Allah and they might do mistakes.
Shame on those who Disrespect any Scholars of Past, Present or Future time:
Yes, we all believe in all the prophets and do not distinguish between them, as Allah said so in the Quraan. And We also believe that Rasool Allah (saw) was the last and final messenger and there will be no prophets or messengers after him (saw).
Also after Rasool Allah, Allah put the responsibility on the whole Ummah, some for Full Time Dawah and the rest for Part Time Dawah:
Help Allah to get Help from Allah:
O ye who believe! If ye will Help Allah, He will Help you, and plant your feet firmly. (Al_Quraan_047.007)
Allah did not left us without any guidance. Quraan is our First Guide, since Allah said so, and after that the Scholars (Ulema, Auliya), who spend their whole life in keeping Islaam alive. We learn from time to time, similarly a nation learns according to the time as well. Previously communication was not fast enough, BUT now we have thousands of books on our computer and in a matter of minutes if not seconds, we get on the computer screen. Allah knows how fast it will be in the future. The World is getting more challenging than ever before, and the effort to save the Ummah on the new coming scholars are huge. BUT thanks to Allah for sending Great Intellectual Scholars (Ulemaas and Auliyas) to keep Islaam alive according to the time. We must respect all the previous, present and future Scholars and we must be with them and practically help them to establish DEEN, if they are sincerely and peacefully working to establish DEEN.
Since Violence is Hurting Islaam very BADLY. And Remember : There is NO Compulsion in Religion..... (Al_Quraan_002:256)
Allah has promised to those of you who believe and do good that He will most certainly make them rulers in the earth as He made rulers those before them, and that He will most certainly establish for them their religion which He has chosen for them, and that He will most certainly, after their fear, give them security in exchange; they shall serve Me, not associating aught with Me; and whoever is ungrateful after this, these it is who are the transgressors. (Al_Quraan_024.055)
Have you not seen those who assert that they believe in what has been revealed to you and what was revealed before you? They desire to summon one another to the judgment of the Shaitan, though they were commanded to deny him, and the Shaitan desires to lead them astray into a remote error. (Al_Quraan_004.060)
O you who believe! be maintainers of justice, bearers of witness of Allah's sake, though it may be against your own selves or (your) parents or near relatives; if he be rich or poor, Allah is nearer to them both in compassion; therefore do not follow (your) low desires, lest you deviate; and if you swerve or turn aside, then surely Allah is aware of what you do. (Al_Quraan_004.135)
O ye who believe! If ye help Allah, He will help you and will make your foothold firm. (AlQuraan_047.007)
We will, without doubt, Help our messengers and those who Believe, (both) in this world's life and on the Day when the Witnesses will stand forth, (Al_Quraan_040.051)

Remember: All scholars (Ulemaas and Auliyas) are (were and will be) human beings and may have done mistakes. We should NOT Blindly believe on them, instead we need to check their sayings from the Quraan.
Allah says in the Quraan as an example, the Christians have made their Alims and Ulemaa and Jesus, Allah (their God).
They have taken as lords beside Allah their rabbis and their monks and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship only Allah. (Al_Quran_009.031)
Athee ibn Hathim was a Christian who came with a group of people and embraced Islam, when the above passage was revealed; he came to Prophet (saw) and said:
Ya Rasoolullah, at no time have we worshipped our Priests and Monks (Alims and Ullamas); then why is Allah saying so?”
To this our beloved Prophet (saw) said:
Do you use to take your Priests words when they say a thing is Halaal?
Hathim (RA) said: “yes”.
Then the Prophet (saw) said:
Do you take the words of your Priests when they say a thing is Haraam?
Then, Prophet (saw) asked:
Do you clarify As to whether Allah and His Prophet have said so?
Hathim (RA) said: “NO”.
Then, Rasool (saw) said:
This is it, You were making them Allah, for when your Alims and Ulemaa say something contradictory to Allah and his Prophet, you obey them BLINDLY without in the LEAST clarifying as to whether Allah and his Prophet said it, then your Alims and Ulemaa become the law makers and law givers, and you obey them blindly, then it is equivalent to making them Allah. Narrated by Hathim (RA) Book: Ahmed.
None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah BUT those who Disbelieve... (Al_Quraan_040.004)
If Quraan cannot convince you nothing will, open your heart towards Allah, because to him will you return and if you haven't gone through the manual (the Quraan) he has sent you and understood it properly, for sure Allah will not like it.
May Allah PROTECT all Muslims from BLINDNESS. AMEEN.
