To associate even the possibility of bad deeds, that too a lie, with Allah (SWT) is Kufr. It is in Quran - Who is more truthful than Allah (SWT) in speech.'. This confirms the fact that even to think of the likelihood of Allah (SWT) telling lies, or associating the possibility of falsehood with Allah's omnipotence (Qurat) is blasphemy.
When anyone inquires from Deobandis about the above blasphemous beliefs, they provide the following clarifications. Look how their scholars are trying to manipulate such a vicious slander on Allah (SWT) by giving excuses.
Reference - Fatawa Rashidiyya page - 84 : 'From servant Rashid Ahmed Gangohi - after Salaam Masnoon - you have inquired concerning the Mas'ala (issue) 'Imkaane Kizb''Imkaane Kizb' in the sense that Allah Taãla has the power to act contrary to what He has ordered, but will not to do with His Free Will, is the belief of this servant ( Rashid Ahmad Gangohi). The Qurãn Shareef and the Sahih Ahaadith bear testimony to this belief (possibility of falsehood). But ( This is a slander on Quran and Ahadith ) and this is the belief of all the Ulama of the Ummah too. (This is slander on all Ulama-e-Islam from the time of Sahabah )
(Now look at the twist in his explanation. He is trying to equate Allah's -SWT 'Rahmah' on servants with the possibility of a shortcoming in His attributes - sifaat)
For example, Firáwn is promised to be thrown into Hell, but Allah Taãla has the power to enter him into paradise, although He will never give him paradise. And this is the Mas'ala under discussion at the moment (No, this is not the issue under discussion. He is trying to fool innocent people. The real issue is, he is claiming the possibility of a shortcoming in Allah's -SWT attributes which is blasphemy). This is the belief of all my friends ( Yes, indeed, this is the blasphemous belief of his Deobandi friends and their like minded people). The enemies must have related it differently. Referring to this Power and the non-occurrence of it is termed 'Imkaane Zaati' and 'Mumtana bi Ghayr' - Was salaam - Rashid Ahmad Gangohi.
Now, look in another reference, how Rashid Ahmad Gangohi tried to fool people by making a difference between 'Allah (SWT) can speak lies' , and 'Allah (SWT) has spoken lies ' .
Reference - Fataawa Rashidiyya pg. 90: 'That person who believes or utters with the tongue concerning Allah Taãla that "He spoke a lie", is positively a Kaafir, an accursed and opposed to the Qurãn, Hadith and the unanimity of the Ummah. He is definitely not a Mu'min. Taãlallaahu ammaa yaqoolu dhaalimoona oluwwan kabeeraa. (Allah is far above from what the transgressors are saying). 'The misrepresenter, besides being involved with misrepresentation, has earned the wrath of Allah. Let the Hadith of the Master of the Green Dome once again ring in his ears. 'A person does not target another with impiety or a person does not target another with Kufr, but it returns to the former if the latter is not guilty of it.' (Bukhari).
Look how Deobandis, Tabhligees and their like minded groups play by twisting their explanations. What they do is, when they are together, they say that Allah (SWT) can speak lies. But when they are objected upon by ahle Sunnah wal Jama'a on their blasphemous beliefs, they try to make a difference between 'Allah can speak lie' and 'Allah has spoken lies' and say that 'they also believe that Allah (SWT) has not spoken lies'. But they insist that Allah (SWT) can tell lies.To claim that Allah (SWT) can speak lies is indeed a blasphemous belief.
It is in Quran - " Do not feign excuses, you have turned disbelievers after becoming Muslims" (at-Tauba - 66).
It is in Quran - "And when they meet with the believers, they say, 'We believe, and when they are alone with their devils (friends), they say, 'We are undoubtedly with you. We were just mocking" (Al-Baqara - 14).
(6) Allah (SWT) has two generous hands that are wide open. Allah (SWT) has two 'real' eyes, while Dajjal (Antichrist) has one eye. Allah has a face and 'hadd' (limitation). Allah (SWT) is not everywhere, every moment. He knows his creatures only by His knowledge. All His limbs, and His face are divine ( not known to people). His face and limbs are not like His creatures.
Any person with an average common sense will easily conclude that the above believes are clear cut idol/diety worship. For Salafis, God is a very very big body with two real eyes, two big hands and face, literally sitting above the skies, his face is towards the Arsh. They seem to worship that body 5 times a day. We fail to understand what is the difference between them and Idol worshipers.Salafis claim that Allah is literally sitting above the throne (Arsh) without ever leaving it. They believe that Allah (SWT) is literally (physically) comes into the sky of the world towards dawn because the Earth is round. They claim it is Kufr to say that Allah (SWT) is inside or mixed with His creation. They believe that Allah (SWT) is encompassing the world from a surface outside the borders of His creation. But in the same breath they say that He comes down to the first sky everyday towards dawn. Meaning, He is mixing up with His creation every night because the first sky is deep below other 6 skies and Arsh.When someone tries to explain their misconceptions about Allah (SWT), they create a hue and cry and say this is 'Kalam' (use of mind / philosophy / Biddah). They behave exactly like Christians who believe in Trinity. When someone questions Christians how it is possible that there are three distinct Gods, the Father God, the Son of God and the Holy Ghost; and then all the three are one? They shout back and ask the person not to mix reasoning in religious beliefs.Salalfis and the like minded groups have misunderstood Quranic verses that explain Allah's (SWT) attributes. In their attempt to take textual meanings of these verses, they have committed Shirk by conceding ‘hands, eyes, face, direction, limitations, dwelling, etc., for Allah (SWT).
(7) Ibn Taymiyyah rejected Allah's (SWT) eternal existence.
This issue is one of the ugliest issues in belief by which Ibn Taymiyah dissented from the explicit tradition and Ijma' of the Muslims.
He mentioned this belief in five of his books: (i) "Minhaj-us-Sunnat-in-Nabawiyyah", (ii) "Muwafaqatu Sarih-il-Maqul li Sahih-il-Manqul", (iii) "Sharh Hadith-in-Nuzul", (iv) "Sharh Hadith Imran Ibn Husayn", and (v) "Naqdu Maratib-il-Ijma".
Ibn Taymiyah's statement in "Minhaj-us-Sunnat-in-Nabawiyyah", Volume I, page 24 is: If you say to us: You said of the occurrence of the hawadith in Allah, we say to you: Yes, and this saying of ours is what the Shar and mind showed.
He replied to Ibn Hazm for reporting the Ijma that Allah existed eternally and nothing existed with Him, and that the disagreer with this is a kafir. - After these words, Ibn Taymiyah said: What is stranger than that is his (Ibn Hazm's) reporting the Ijma upon the kufr of whoever contended with the belief that Allah existed eternally by Himself and nothing existed with Him.
(8) Ismail Dehelwi has written - "To believe Allah (SWT) to be free from time, place, form and being is a composite innovation (Biddah).
Reference - Izaahul Haqq - Ismail Dehelwi.
Allah (SWT) is free from time, place, form and composition. He does not live in a place, have an eye or is made up of parts. Unfortunately, Salafis, Deobandis, Ahle Hadith and like minded groups believe in this Kufr. They quote certain metaphorical Quranic verses (Ayaat-e-Mutashabihaat) to prove their wrong beliefs.
(9) Hussain Ali Deobandi has written "Allah (SWT) does not know in advance what human beings (His servants) will do. He comes to know about it when humans perform their actions. ( La haula wala quwwata illah billah)
Reference - (Tafseer Balaghatul Hayyraan, pages 157-158, Himayat-e-Islam Press, Lahore, written by Hussain Ali Deobandi).
(10) The glory of Allah (SWT) is that whenever He wishes, He can know the Unseen (Ghaib). Allah (SWT) has not bestowed any Wali, Prophet, Jinn or Angel with this ability.
(Reference - Taqwiyatul-lmaan by Ismail Dehlwi) (Taqwiyatul Imaan is a literal translation of Arabic book ‘Kitab At-Tawheed’ written by Ibn Abdul Wahhab Najdi.)
Allah (SWT) has the Knowledgeable of the Unseen (Aalimul-Ghaib). His knowledge is His attribute (quality) and is Sure (Waajib). Saying, "Whenever He wishes, He can know ...." means that if Allah (SWT) doesn't wish, He remains ignorant. This kind of belief is infidelity (kufr). The attributes of Allah (SWT) are not choices for Him, but are sure for Him.
It is in Quran – ‘He (Allah –SWT) has knowledgeable of the Unseen. Does not show the unseen but to His revered Apostle (SAWS). (Ash-Shuara - 7).
(11) On page 8 of Taweeyatul iman, Ismail Dehlwi says that even the idol worshippers in the time of the Prophet Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam did not equal there idols to Allah Azawajul. What they really did is call out to the idols in there times of need and they used to make offerings to them expecting to attain some favour. He then says that it is for this reason that anyone who considers any servant of Allah Azawajul as an intercessor or a mediator between Allah Azawajul and the servants is equal in shirk to abu jahl.
The above statement not only condemns the intercession of the Prophet Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam , but it also condemns all the companions Radi Allahu anhum, the great Imams Rahmatullahi 'alayh, the Awliya Allah Rahmatullahi 'alayh and all the Muslims as mushriks like abu jahl.
In th same book he says that if one is asked about how many stars etc there are in the sky then one should not say Allah Azawajul and his Rasool Salla Allahu 'alayhi wa Sallam know, because only Allah Azwajul has the knowledge of the unseen and not the Prophet .
The above statement condemns all Sahaba (Radi Allahu anhum) because there are thousands of Ahadith in which Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) asked Sahaba questions about so many things related to knowledge of Unseen and they replied "Allah and His Apostle knows about it" Ismail Dehlvi is saying that all Sahaba were wrong in saying so. This is Kufr.
On page 22 of taqweeyatul iman, Ismail Dehlwi says that anyone who’s name is Muhmmed or Ali has no power or right over anything.
By saying the above, Ismail Dehlwi is denying hundreds of Quranic verses and Ahadith. Even a normal human being has a right and power to do so many things, then how come Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) does not have it?
(Reference - Taqwiyatul-Imaan by Ismail Dehlwi)
(12) To accept Khaatimun Nabiyeen (the last and final Prophet) to mean that Mohammad Rasulullah (SAWS) is the final messenger and Prophet is wrong. Rather it means that he is the original and permanent Prophet and all others are temporary. Thus, if another Prophet appears after Rasulullah (SAWS), still there will be no difference in him being the final Prophet.
( Reference - Tahzeerun Naas, Pg. 18 and 34 by Qaasim Nanautwi, Nanotvi is the founder of Darul Uloom Deoband which was established in 1867. This Institution is the largest school in Sub continent India where 100% of the scholars of these sects have been trained. In addition, they train thousands of Da'awa teachers every year in this institution to spread their misleading beliefs.
"Khaatimun-Nabiyeen" means that Prophet (SAWS) is the Final Messenger. It is impossible for a person to become a Prophet either during the time of Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) or after it. This is the meaning upon which the entire Muslim Ummah has agreed upon and is also the meaning explained in various Ahadith. Those who reject this, are apostates (Murtadeen) (out of Islam). (Qadiyanis, Deobandis, Tablighi Jama’at and the like minded groups).
(13) Khalil Ahmad Ambethawi says: "After looking at the condition of Satan and the Angel of Death, it can be gained that they possess a great depth of knowledge and this has been proven from the Qur’an and Ahadith. To prove such knowledge for Muhammad Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihi wasallam) without proof from the Qur’an and Ahadith, but from common sense, is a false thought. If, to do so is not a Shirk, then in which category of faith does it fall?" (Astaghfirullah)

Such knowledge is possessed by Zayd and Amr (meaning any Tom, Dick and Harry), every child, insane people and all types of animals."The type of knowledge of Unseen given by Allah (SWT) to Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) is also given to animals, lunatic humans and kids.

(15) Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi says: "The word ‘Rahmatul-lil-Aalameen’ is not a speciality of Rasool (Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam). But other Prophets, saints and great Ulema are also the cause of mercy unto the worlds, even though Rasool (Sallallaho Alaihi wasallam) is the highest of them all. Therefore, to use this word ( Rahmatul lil Aalameen ) on others, is also permissible." and is not exclusive attribute of Rasool (Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam). (Astaghfirullah)
Reference - Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi, Book - Fatawa Rasheediya, page 12, Volume 2, 1352 H, Raheemiya Kutub Khana, Sunehri Masjid, Delhi, Publication.
The title of 'Rahmatul lil Aalameen' has been given to Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) by Allah (SWT). It is in Quran "Wama arsalnaka illa ramtul lil aalameen". Therefore, this title is exclusive with Prophet Mohammad (SAWS). As far as others are concerned, they may become a cause of mercy to a group of people or a region of people (like previous prophets came for their respective nations), but they cannot be entitled to the title that has been awarded by Allah (SWT) on Prophet Mohammad (SAWS).Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) is Rahmatul lil aalameen, meaning he is mercy on all worlds in this cosmos (which are uncountable), and not just the planet earth.

(iv) It is in Bukhari, volume 9, book 87 (Interpretation of Dreams) # 124, It is narrated by narrated Abu Qatada (RU) that the Prophet (SAWS) said, "A good dream is from Allah, and a bad dream is from Satan. So whoever has seen (in a dream) something he dislike, then he should spit without saliva, thrice on his left and seek refuge with Allah from Satan, for it will not harm him, and Satan cannot appear in my shape."(v) It is in Bukhari, volume 9, book 87 (Interpretation of Dreams) # 125, It is narrated by narrated Abu Qatada that the Prophet (SAWS) said, "Whoever sees me (in a dream) then he indeed has seen the truth ."

This is Shirk-e-Akbar and they have reached that degree. It does not matter if their belief is that it is through Allah or in fact really Allah that is helping them and this is just a way of getting to Allah, in other words all this is Shirk and to kill such a person is allowed and to rob their possessions is also allowed."

It is in Hadith - Imam Ahmad mentioned this Hadith in Kitab al-zuhd, also Ibn Abi al-Dunya, Abu Nu'aym, Bayhaqi, and Ibn 'Asakir narrated it - Wahb ibn Munabbih said: I saw the Prophet (SAWS) in my sleep, so I said: "Ya Rasulallah (SAWS), where are the Substitutes (abdaal) of your Community?" So he gestured with his hand towards Syria. I said: "Ya Rasulallah (SAWS), aren't there any in Iraq?" He said: "Yes, Muhammad ibn Wasi`, Hassan ibn Abi Sinan, and Malik ibn Dinar, who walk among the people similarly to Abu Dharr in his time."
The above Hadith confirms the following two things.
(i) Calling Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) as 'Ya Rasulullah (SAWS)' is a must. It is important because the great Imams of Fiqh and Ahadith ( Imam Ahmad, Ibn Abi al-Dunya, Abu Nu'aym, Bayhaqi, Ibn Asakir, etc. ) have mentioned this in their books and all their books were written after the death of Prophet Mohammad (SAWS).(ii) Calling Prophet (SAWS) as 'Ya Rasulullah, Ya Habeeballah, Ya Mohammad, Ya Habeebana, Ya Mustafa (SAWS) (after his death) is also confirmed by Tirmizi, Nasa'i, Ibn Huzeema, Hakim and Baihaqi.
The following supplication (Dua) is mentioned in the books of all these Hadith scholars. The Dua also confirms that we must supplicate (make Dua') by taking the Waseelah of Prophet Mohammad (SAWS). As a matter of fact our Dua will not be accepted by Allah (SWT) if we do not send Durood on Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) before and after the Dua and seek Allah's favor by the mediation (Waseelah) of Prophet Mohammad (SAWS).Allahumma inni as'aluka wa atwajjahu elaika bi habeebikal Mustafa indaka ya habeebana ya mohammadi inna natawassalu bika ila rabbika fashfa'a lanaa indal maulal a'zeemi ya ni'amar rasoolut tahiru. Allahumma shaffi'ahu feena bijaahihi indaka".
(Meaning - O'Allah (SWT) I implore, I beg to you with the mediation (waseelah) of your revered beloved (Prophet -SAWS) who is chosen by you. O' Beloved of the Al-mighty, O' Mohammad (SAWS) we implore to Allah (SWT) with your mediation (Waseelah). Kindly mediate (shafa'a) for us with the Exalted Almighty Allah. O' Sacred Apostle (SAWS), O' Allah (SWT), kindly accept the intercession (Shafa'a) of our Prophet (SAWS) for us in view of the "honor and grace (bi jaahihi indaka)" he has with you.
(39) Deobandi scholar Husain Ahmad Madani writes about the Wahabis and their beliefs and stating how he opposes these beliefs. He states that the Wahabis have written: "Wahabis classify a pilgrimage to Madina Munawarah (with the intention to visit the Holy Prophet’s sacred shrine as an adultery."

(40) Deobandi scholar Husain Ahmad Madani has reported that the Saudi Wahabis have written: "A stick in our hands is more profitable to us than the Holy Prophet at least we can get rid of dogs with it, we can’t even do that with the Holy Prophet."

(41) Deobandi scholar Nawab Siddique Hasan Bhopali writes: "Whatever that has been made in the form of a grave and which is of course against Shariat is forbidden and to demolish them down to earth’s level is Wajib for all Muslims without any concession, whether it is a Prophet’s grave or of any other person".

FATWA-E-KUFR ON THESE ULEMA
Who are these Deobandi / Wahhabi / Salafi and like minded groups ?
This question was raised by the Ulama of Masjid-e-Nabawi, headed by Mufti Sheikh Umar bin Hamadan Al Maharassee, who gave Fatwa of Kufr on Deobandi / Wahabi / Tabligh Jammaat leaders and founders nearly 100 years ago for insulting the Prophet (SAWS). This Fatwa was issued after years of study of Wahabi / Deobandi books and clarification sought from the writers of these books which were never received nor did they repent for their opinions.
Majority of Muslims are not aware of many contradictions within the Wahabi/ Deobandi Aqeeda. They do not know that the leaders of these sects have Fatwa of Kufr given on them. Most people know about Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani, but they do not know that the Fatwa issued in 1320 A.H. (1900 A.D.) by 33 prominent Ulama of Makkah and Medina naming the individual leaders of Wahhabi/Deobandi sects including Ashraf Ali Thanvi, Khalil Ahmed Ambetwi, Rashid Ahmed Gangohi Qassim Nanotvi, etc.
This fatwa bears the signatures and seals of Ulama of Makka and Madina, and other Muftis and Islamic judges. Three reasons have been given for calling them kafir :
They deny the finality of prophethood;
They insult the Holy Prophet;
They believe that God can tell a lie.
Hence it is written about them: "He who doubts that they are kafirs, is himself a kafir.''
(Hisam al-Haramain, pp. 100 and 113)
(42) Ilyas Khandalvi, states in his own book, "Deeni Dawat", that whilst speaking to his friend, Maulvi Zahirul Hussien (M.A. Aligarh) he stated: "Zahirul Hassan ! We need to form a new sect."
Reference - Deeni Dawat, page - 205Look, the founder of the Deobandi / Wahabi /Tablighi leader himself admits to forming a new Sect openly in his book.
(43) Mohammad Ilyas, the founder of Tabhligee Jama'at stated: "Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi has done a great job. I am pleased that the religious teachings are his and the method for the tabligh is mine, whereby the teachings of Ashraf Ali will spread far and wide."

(44) Ashraf Ali Thanvi wrote about Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) as "Worthless little than nothing".

(45) Ashraf Ali Thanvi wrote ' : "I keep on stating that in these times any person who does a good deed, gets the reward of 50 Abu Bakr Siddiqs (radi Allahu anhu)."

(46) Wahabi and Deobandi Maulvi, Nazeer Hussain Delvi writes: "There is no proof for recitation (wazifa) of the whole Kalima, 'La Ilaha Illallaaho Muhammadur Rasoolallah,' for Wazifa purposes, there is proof for just 'La Ilaha Illallah'."

Look at his grudge and enimity with Prophet Mohammad (SAWS)
(47) Abu'l Ala Maududi (1903-1979) was probably the most well known leader of the various "Salafi" movements of his time. He founded the political party known as Jama'at al-Islami in 1941. Look at what he said about the Well known prophets.
There was a carnal desire in the act of Hadrat Dawud (peace be upon him) and he misused his authority. It was an act which did not suit any acquiescent person in the government.
Hadrat Nuh (peace be upon him) was overcome by his human deficiency and he became prey to the emotions of ignorance.
The statement of Hadrat Yusuf (peace be upon him), 'Appoint me as a treasurer of the land' according to him was not merely a request for the post of treasury, as some people presume, but it was a demand for dictatorship. As a result of this, the position which Yusuf (peace be upon him) achieved was very much similar to the position Mussolini held. Hadrat Yunus (peace be upon him) was negligent in the duty of Prophethood. Presumably he left his place before time after loosing his patience.
The example of Musa (peace be upon him) is that of a hasty conqueror who continues marching without reinforcing his authority. Behind him in the captured land a revolt spreads like fire in a jungle.
Can anyone dare to talk about the great prophets in this manner? The entire Ahadith books and Quran is full of their praise. But Moududi is abusing them in harshest terms.
(48) Look at What Maududi writes about Prophet Mohammad (SAWS).
Allah Most High ordered the Prophet (SAWS) in Surat al-Nasr to seek forgiveness from his Lord for waht he committed during the accomplishment of his duties (ie. as Prophet) such as short comings and defects.In his Rasa'il Masa'il (p. 55) he writes:Everything that was narrated in the [mutawatir] hadiths of the Prophet (saws) in connection with the Anti-Christ - all of it - was mere opinion and conjecture on his part (saws) and he was undecided concerning it. One time he thought he would come out from Khurasan, another time from Asbahan, another time from between Sham and Iraq, and yet another time he though that the Anti-Christ was Ibn al-Sayyad in Madina. And one time he said something which was narrated from him by that Palestinian Christian Monk, Tamim al-Dari.In the same book he writes on (p. 57)
The Messenger of Allah (saws) thought that the Dajjal would come out in his time or very near it and yet 1350 long years have passed and the Dajjal did not come out. So it is established that what he (saws) believed was untrue.
Look, what he is saying. Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) (nauzubillahi has shortcomings and defects and what Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) said was untrue. This way he is denying the entire Quran and Ahadith literature. Quran says, Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) does not say anything from his self, whatever he says is the Wahi from Allah (SWT). Let Allah's (SWT) curse be upon Maududi and all others who have such beliefs about Prophet Mohammad (SAWS).
(49) Ibn Taymiyyah claimed that Allah (SWT) has limitations (divine Hadd).
Ibn Taymiyah confirmed attributing the hadd to Allah (SWT) in his book "al-Muwafaqah", Volume 2, page 33.
He said: The Muslims and non-Muslims agreed that Allah is in the sky and they limited Him to this.
To emphasize the above, on page 29, he said: He (Allah) does not have a hadd we know, but He has a hadd that He knows.
What kind of a belief is this? He is claiming that both Muslims and non-Muslims agreed and have consensus that Allah has a hadd (limitations).
(50) In "al-Muwafaqah", page 29, Ibn Taymiyah said: "Allah, ta'ala, has a hadd no one but He knows it. His place also has a hadd, which is on His Arsh above His skies. These are two limits for Allah".
In the twenty-fifth volume of "al-Kawakib-ud-Darariyy", which is in the Library of az-Zahiriyyah in Damascus, Ibn Taymiyah said:
(QUOTE) If Allah willed he would sit on a mosqito, which would carry Him by His power; how about on a large ^Arsh! (UNQUOTE) (Astaghfirullah).
(51) Ibn Batutah, who visited Damascus while Ibn Taymiyyah was in jail testified in his book that "he witnessed Ibn Taymiyyah on the pulpit saying, 'every night Allah descends to the lower heaven (first sky) like my descent', and he descended one step down the pulpit".
The above action and physical display of Allah's (SWT) descent shows the belief of Ibn Taymiyyah that Allah (SWT) (nauzubillahi) has a divine body. If he did not believe in a body form for Allah (SWT) he would not have acted that way, rather would have said 'Allah (SWT) knows it best how He descends to the first sky'.
Read the above beliefs carefully, you will easily understand that Salafis and their like minded groups have made an Idol of Allah (SWT) in their minds, but they do not want to say it openly and prefer to confuse people with their strange interpretations and logic. Their God has hands, eyes, face and various limitations. What kind of a Tawheed is this?
Their logic is similar to Christian logic who believe in Trinity, (The Father God, the son of God and the Holy Ghost God) but claim that they believe in one God.
It is in Quran - "They surely are not believers in (Allah (SWT) who say 'Allah (SWT) is the third of the three (God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Ghost' (Al-Maa'idah - 73).
In the same way, those who allege hands, eyes, body and hadd (limitations) for Allah (SWT) will also be treated as Non-believers.
(52) Ibn Baţuţah, the famous historian who met Ibn Taymiyyah has written in his memoirs - “There was something wrong with his (Ibn Taymiyyah's) mind.”Indeed, it is more than a fair assessment of Ibn Taymiyyah by a celebrated Historian.
(53) Ibn Taymiyyah says (i) Allah (SWT) needs, (ii) He is divisible into quantities and areas, (iii) settles in a place, (iv) has six limits, (v) has a size, and (vi) He has to continue creating things (though He can choose what to create - but not whether to create or not).
The above faith is nothing but idol worship. Ibn Taymiyyah seems to have a large body of Allah (SWT) in his mind. These belief about Allah (SWT) of the followers of Salafi and other Groups is similar to Hindus and other idol worshipers.
(54) Ibn Abdul Wahhab claimed that visiting Madina Al-Munawwara to say Duirood and Salam on Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) is Shirk.
Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhab took Quranic verses revealed for the mushrikeen of Makka and applied them to Muslim Ulema, Awliya Allah,Sufi Shaikhs and others and said "Those who perform tawassul are similar to those Mushrikeen who claimed they did not worship the idols except to achieve a higher status from Allah." He said: "The Mushrikeen did not believe that idols create anything; they believed Allah is the Creator."
He branded all Muslim Ulema / Awliya and Shaikhs of 1000 years before him as Mushrikeen by misinterpreting Quranic verses.
(55) Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Sulayman al-Kurdiyy was Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhab’s Shaykh. Read, what he said about his student.
QUOTE : O' Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhab, I advise you, for the sake of Allah, ta'ala, to hold your tongue regarding the Muslims. If you hear from anyone who asks for help from other than Allah that one has the power to effect things without the Will of Allah, then teach him the right thing about this issue, and show him the proofs which state no one other than Allah brings things from non-existence into existence. The one who rejects that is blasphemous.
You have no right to label the majority of the Muslims as blasphemers while you are deviant from the majority of the Muslims. In fact, it is more reasonable to consider the one who deviates from the majority of the Muslims as a blasphemer than to consider the Muslims as a nation as blasphemers because the deviant one has followed a path other than the path of the believers.
In Surah an-Nisa’, Ayah 15, Allah said: [Whomever contends with the Messenger after the right path was exposed to him and follows other than the way of the believers, Allah will leave him to whatever he followed and put him in Hell (Jahannam)].UNQUOTE
(56) Dr. Zakir Naik, a very famous scholar of Ahle Hadith (a like minded group of Salafis ) is reported to have said Raziallahu Ta'ala Unhu with Yazid's name in a public gathering. Later they clarified their position in an article as follows.QUOTE - As far as the Ahl-e-sunnat-wal-Jamaat is concerned (look Dr. Naik calling himself as Ahle Sunnah Wal Jama'a even though he belongs to Salafi/Ahle Hadith group), inspite of the difference of opinion it is agreed upon that it is permissible to say “May Allah have mercy on him” or “May Allah be pleased with him” for Yazeed. Therefore saying “May Allah be pleased with him” after Yazeed’s name is not Haraam, nor a sin and is not wrong. - UNQUOTEIn the same article they have manipulated and removed the special mention of Yazid from the Fatwas and Statements of Sunni Scholars like Ahmad Raza Khan in which he cursed Yazid.The above groups mention a Hadith in Bukhari in which Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) said the first Muslim Army who will invade the city of Constantinople (presently Istanbul) will be rewarded with Jannah. They claim Yazid was part of that army.The above claim is false because not even a single Hadith mentioned in this context has the word "Constantinople" in its text. Some Hadith scholars have mentioned this name in their Hadith guides. The above Hadith-e-Bukhari also mentions "The first Muslim army who will invade the city of Qaiser-e-Room (Byzantine empire) will be Jannati." The wording of the Hadith are "awwalu jaishin min ummati yaghzoona madinata Qaisara maghfurullahum" (Hadith No. 8668). Thus, it could be any city of Byzantine empire.You read any Islamic History book written by any well known Islamic historian (including Salafi scholar Al-Dhahabi, Ibn Katheer etc.) it is mentioned that the first Muslim invasion of Constantinople, Byzantine empire took place in 42 H in which Yazid was not there. The second invasion of Muslims on Byzantine empire was in 43 H under the command of Bu'sr bin Abi Arta, and the Army reached the city of Constantinople. Yazid was not part of this Army. The third invasion of Muslims took place in 44 H under the command of Abd ar-Rahman bin Khaled bin Walid. In this invasion, Busr bin Abi Arta also participated and attacked Constantinople from Sea. Yazid was not part of this Army. The fifth invasion of Constantinople was in 46 H under the command of Malik bin Abdullah. Yazid was not part of this Muslim Army. The sixth invasion of Byzantine empire was undertaken in 47 H under the command of Malik bin Hubaira. Yazid was not part of this Army.Three invasions took place on Byzantine empire in 49 H under the commands of (i) Malik bin Hubaira and (ii) Fazala bin Ubair. Fazala bin Ubair captured many cities of Byzantine empire. The third invasion of Byzantine empire took place in the same year under the command of Yazid bin Shajara Ar-Rahawi, who hailed from Syria. It is wrongly, may be deliberately, claimed by Wahhabis and their like minded Groups that the commander of this Army was Yazid bin Mu'awia, which is not true. We invite our readers to read any History books of Islam, (including the history books written by Salafi Scholars) they will find the truth in this context.The 8th invasion of Byzantine empire took place in 50 H and in this invasion, some people claim that Yazid bin Mua'wia was part of this Army. Thus Yazid was part of the Army of 8th invasion of Byzantine Empire. The Hadith says that the first Muslim Army who will invade Byzantine empire is Jannati. Then how come he is claimed to be Jannati?The Salafis mention Hadith Guide book Fatahul Bari written by Ibn Hajar Asqalani in which it is written that 'the invasion of Constantinople took place in 52 H and the commander of this Army was Yazid. Even if we take this date as authentic, then this will be the ninth invasion of that city, and not the first one. Because, as we have mentioned earlier with authentic sources that 8 invasions had already taken place before this date. Therefore, Yazid cannot be part of the people who are declared Jannati by Prophet Mohammad (SAWS).It is also mentioned in many Islamic History books that at the time of 8th invasion of Byzantine empire, Janab Muawiah wanted Yazid to participate, but he refused. We will write these details with authentic references at some other place.We do not understand why these sects want to favor Yazid against Imam Hussain (RU)? They should know the result of their favor and wrath of Allah (SWT) they will face on the Day of Judgment.
Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal was asked by his son that a group of people (qawm) attribute us to [be with] Yazid , he replied, O son! Whoever believes in Allah, how can they have any association with Yazid? And why should he not be cursed (laanat) when Allah sends laanat on him in his Book. The son asked where did Allah send laanat on him in His Book? The Imam replied “in this saying of Allah Ta’la”:
It is in Quran - 'Do you then have the sign that if you get the authority, spread disorder in the land and sever your ties of Kinship? These are they whom Allah (SWT) has cursed and made them deaf from the truth and made their eyes blind. (Sura Mohammad -SAWS, Verses 22-23), and then says, is there any greater fasaad than the assasination of Husain (RU)?
(Reference - The above is mentioned in multiple sources such as Ibn Hajar Makki in al-Sawa’iq al-Muhriqa page 333, Tafsir Mazhari v. 8. p. 434 Imam Barzanji in al-Isha’at, Qadi Abu Ya’la in Mu’tamad al-Usool, ibn al-Jawzi and so on).
There are innumerable Quranic verses and Ahadith which clearly state that Ahle Bait-e-Rasulullah (SAWS) and his children are pious and virtuous souls.
Imam Jalal Uddin Suyuti mentions in his book ‘The History of the Rightly Guided Caliphs’ (Taarekh ul Khulufaa al-Raashideen); “Nawfal bin Abi al-Faraat said ‘Once I was with Umar bin Abdul Aziz when a man said in his presence ‘Yazid, the leader of the believers’ (Ameer ul Mu’mineen). Umar bin Abdul Aziz said [in shock] ‘Did you call Yazid the Leader of the Believers? Umar then ordered for the man to be lashed 20 times”.
Suyuti further writes that in the year 63 H. Yazid was involved in sacking Madinat al-Rasool, in killing a generation of the Companions, and in desecrating and robbing Madinah. Suyuti continues that the Prophet (SAWS) had said, whoever terrifies the people of Madinah, upon him is the curse of Allah (SWT), that of His angels and that of all the people of the world. (Sahih Muslim). After creating carnage in Madinah in the incident of Harrah, the army of Yazid proceeded to Makkah to confront Abdullah ibn al-Zubair, a self-declared Caliph in Hijaz. In Makka, the Army of Yazid committed unthinkable war crimes. Please read Islamic History for details.
It is in Tirmizi, Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) at the time of Hajjatul Vida gave last public sermon in which he stated that he is leaving behind two things, (1) Quran-e-Karim, and (2) his pious Ahle-Bait. Don’t they read Quran and Hadith books?
When we finish reading the above statements of the founders and very prominent scholars of these sects, we get convinced that they and their followers are look alikes (photo copy) of the hypocrites (Munafiqun) of the time of Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) who used to claim they are Muslims, but inside they used to hate the Prophet of Islam (SAWS).
It is in Quran - 'They seek to deceive Allah (SWT) and those who believe. Nay, themselves do they deceive, though they are not conscious of it. There is a disease in their hearts, so Allah (SWT) lets them increase their disease and for them there is a grievous torment (Azaab) for the false assertions they have made' (Al-Baqara 9)
It is in Quran - (O'Prophet - SAWS) Convey the hypocrite the tiding that for them there is a painful torment. (An-Nisa - 138).
It is in Quran - 'Indeed, the hypocrites (will be) in the lowest depth of the Hell Fire and you (O'Prophet -SAWS) will not find any helper for them. (An-Nisa - 145).
