  1. Nucleus of Sunni Islam

    It does annoy me when people think Sunnis don't like the Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) That might be true of Nasibis and some extreme Salafis and Deobandis but certainly isn't true of most Sunnis (especially those with links to a Sufi tariqah). We say as Imam Shafi'i said, "If love of the Ahlul Bayt makes me a Rafidi than I am the biggest Rafidi!" True Sunni Islam may be described in these famous words: 'Islam ishq-e-Mustafa ka doosra naam hai!' (Islam is just another name for devotional love of the Prophet (s)'
  2. Nucleus of Sunni Islam

    I'd say it is the devotional love of the Prophet above all followed by love and respect for ALL of His Ahlul Bayt and ALL of His Sahaba.
  3. Barelvi Sunnis

    To Sol 7, Yes all Barelvis are Sufis - mostly of the Qadri Tariqah but many also (like myself) of the Naqshbandi (in my case Naqshbandi-Haqqani tariqah of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q)) and also Chishti and Sabri Sufi orders. Perhaps the most famous modern Sufi who you can call as a Barelvi per his beliefs is Pir Sayyid Mihr Ali Shah of Golra Sharif (q).
  4. So I guess I'm a Wahhabi...

    What about this dua by Imam ZAyn al Abidin (as) on his way back from Karbala to Madina: Naat by Imam Zainul Abideen, when he was surrounded amongst enemies after the incident of Karbala قصيدة رائعة للإمام زين العابدين ان نلت ياريح الصبا يوما الى ارض الحرم O Winds! If someday you pass by the sacred land, بلغ سلامى روضة فيها النبى المحترم Do give my greetings at the Blessed Grave where rests the Prophet, most exalted یا مصطفا، یا مجتبا ارحم على عصياننا Oh Chosen One, Oh Chosen one ... مجبورة أعمالنا طمعا وذنبا وظلم من وجهه شمس الضحى من خده بدرالجى He whose blessed face is the midday sun, his blessed cheeks are the full moon, من زاته نورالهدى من كفه بحرالهمم He whose self is the light of guidance and whose generosity is an ocean قرانه برهاننا فسخا لاديان مضت The Qur'an is our source proving other religions are abrogated, ازجاءنا احكامه كل الصحف صار العدم When its guidelines came to us, the other books became non-existent اكبادنا مجروحة من سيف هجرالمصطفى The sadness of separation [from Madinah] feels like a sword deep into my liver, طوى لاهل بلدة فيها النبى المحتشم How fortunate are the people of that city in which the Exalted & Beloved Prophet resides ياليتنى كنت كمن يتبع نبيا عالايما يوما وليلا دائما وارزق كزالى با لكرم يارحمةللعالمين انت شفيع المزنبين O Mercy for the worlds! You are the intercessor for the sinners, اكرم لنا يوم الحزين فضلا وجودا والكرم Shower your blessings upon us on the Day of Grief يارحمةللعالمين ادرك لزين العابدين O Mercy for the worlds! Assist Zaynul Abideen, محبوس ايدى الظالمين فى الموكب المزدحم Who stands alone and in difficulty amongst the tyrants. It is CLEAR tassawul to the Prophet, from afar, after the Prophet has gone to the next world, with the direct words, "Ya Rahmatulil Alamin ADRIKNI (assist) Zayn al Abidin!" Are you going to call this shirk now? How about the cry of Lady Zaynab (a.s.) "Ya Muhammada!" and even at the Battle of Yamamah Sayyidina Abu Bakr Siddiq (ra) also shouted "Ya Muhammada!" during difficulty. Stop letting Wahabis and Nasibis fool you!

    Some hadith: 1. Al-Bukhari narrates in his Sahih that our mother Hajar, when she was running in search of water between Safa and Marwa, heard a voice and called out: "O you whose voice you have made me hear! If there is a ghawth (help/helper) with you (then help me)!" and an angel appeared at the spot of the spring of Zamzam. 2. Abu Ya`la, Ibn al-Sunni, and al-Tabarani in al-Mu`jam al-Kabir narrated that the Prophet (saws) said: "If one of you loses something or seeks help or a helper (ghawth), and he is in a land where there is no one to befriend, let him say: "O servants of Allah, help me! (ya `ibad Allah, aghithuni), for verily Allah has servants whom one does not see." Al-Haythami said in Majma` al-Zawa'id (10:132): "The men in its chain of transmission have been declared reliable despite weakness in one of them." Another wording: 3. Al-Bayhaqi narrates on the authority of Ibn `Abbas in "Kitab al-Aadaab" (p. 436) and with a second chain mawquf from Ibn `Abbas in "Shu`ab al-Iman" (1:445-446=1:183 #167; 6:128 #7697) and a third from Ibn Mas`ud in "Hayat al-Anbiya' ba`da Wafatihim" p. 44: "Allah has angels on the earth - other than the [two] record-keepers - who keep a record [even] of the leaves that fall on the ground. Therefore, if one of you is crippled in a deserted land where no-one is in sight, let him cry out: a'înû 'ibâd Allâh rahimakum Allâh, 'Help, O servants of Allah, may Allah have mercy on you!' Verily he shall be helped, if God wills." Ibn Hajar said its chain is fair (isnaduhu hasan) in "al-amali". Narrated by al-Tabarani in al-Kabir with a fair chain (according to Ibn Hajar in al-Amali) of sound narrators according to al-Haythami (10:132), al-Bazzar (#3128) - as cited by al-Shawkani in Tuhfa al-Dhakirin (p. 219=p. 155-156) -, and Ibn Abi Shayba (7:103). 4. Ibn Abi Shayba relates in his "Musannaf" (7:103) from Aban ibn Salih that the Prophet (saws) said: "If one of you loses his animal or his camel in a deserted land where there is no-one in sight, let him say: "O servants of Allah, help me! (yâ 'ibâd Allâh a'înûnî), for verily he will be helped."
  6. So I guess I'm a Wahhabi...

    Ok I'm a Sufi Sunni and I just watched this video. The first point is that Wahabis' videos always have ulterior motives. Even in this video they added the image of the Hindu goddess Kali and also added the word "goddess" in brackets after the name of Sayyida Fatima (s.a.) .I don't know Arabic very well but I am pretty sure the speaker did not use the word "goddess" for SAyyida Fatima? I do not know about this prayer which he is referring to but I did NOT understand his words to mean you should do salah for sayyida Fatima (nauzubillah). It might be some kind of special namaz for fulfilling needs. I do not know of this particular one but I do know that in authentic Sunni sources (not Wahabi) special prayers and duas exist for seeking help. As a Qadiri Sufi we have a dua called Salat al Ghawthiyyah, for example, which is a dua taught by Sayyidina Ghawlth al Azam Abdul Qadir Jilani (ra) to seek help from Allah via the Ghawth.I have used it and it works alhamdulillah. If Shaykh Abd al Qadir Jilani (q) can help, who is both Hassani and Hussaini sayyid, don't you think his noble ancestors the Imams of Ahlul Bayt, or Hazrat Abbas or other members of the Aal, can't help? They are greater than Huzoor Ghawth al Azam! I am Sunni and I routinely say, "Ya Ali madad!", or "Ya Hussain!" etc. (or Ya Shaykh Abdul Qadir! etc. etc.) The issue of tawassul is a delicate one and people often misunderstand it. It is all to do with intention. If you believe Allah has given these holy saintly people the power to help his servants then it is not shirk. If you believe these people can help independently of Allah then it would be shirk but no Muslim, as far as I know, has ever believed that! When I say, "Ya Ali madad!" I know it is because Allah has given Mawla Ali (a.s.) the power to help those in need! And that is true of all his saintly servants. There is that famous verse in the Qur'an about calling upon Allah and His Messenger and those who give charity whilst in ruku....which we all believe refers to Ali (a.s.) This article by the Lebanese scholar Dr. Gibril Haddad is excellent about the permissibility of calling upon other than Allah for help with evidences: http://www.sunnah.org/aqida/madad.htm
  7. Barelvi Sunnis

    A young British Sunni Barelvi scholar and lover of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) speaks about the events of Karbala. (in English)
  8. Barelvi Sunnis

    Who says we don't love Mawla Ali (a.s.) or Mawla Hussain (a.s.)? (Please don't confuse us with the Khariji and Nasibi Salafis or Ahle Hadith! or Deobandis!) Here Shah Sahib compares the bravery of Imam Hussain (a.s.) to that of the famed Persian hero Rustam and finds Rustam wanting! Ya Hussain (a.s.)!
  9. Barelvi Sunnis

    In a nutshell it can be said our religion is based around devotional love of Prophet Muhammad and the Ahlul Bayt and their shafa'at and the awliya.
  10. Barelvi Sunnis

    another speech: Some Salafis and Ahle Hadith and Deobandis actually accuse us of being Shia!!!
  11. Barelvi Sunnis

    It depends on the type of music. Qawwali music is allowed by some Sunni Barelvi scholars and disallowed by others but the majority allow it as it is about praise of Allah, The Beloved Prophet, Imam Ali and the Sufi saints (awliya). Many qawwalis are also about the Ahlul Bayt. In fact probably the majority! And apart from Shia no other group of Muslims does the maatam of Imam Hussain during Karbala apart from us... (Non-religious music like pop etc. is forbidden by all Sunnis scholars. ) I think Sunni Barelvis (and Sufis in general) are very pro-Ali'd and pro-Ahlul Bayt. We believe in Aliyyun Wali Allah too but don't make it a part of our kalimah. Listen to speeches by Mufakkir e Islam Pir Sayyid Abdul Qadir Shah Sahib of the UK as an example. That's why generally there has been no problems between us and Shias. (Our main issue with Shias is the cursing of the Companions. Though we believe Mawla Ali was on Haqq during all the conflicts - we respect all the companions of the Prophet and stay silent on them out of respect for the Prophet.)
  12. Sunni Chaplain On Muharram

    In the Subcontinent, traditional (Sufi or Barelvi) Sunnis have long commemorated the martyrdom of Imam e Ali Maqam (a.s.) every Muharram. Here is a majlis for Imam Hussain in chaste Urdu by Sayyid Muhammad Hashmi of India:

    Ya Zahra (s.a.) emotional live recitation by the late Sayyid Nasir ud Din Nasir Gilani (r.a.) who also wrote this manqabat in praise of Sayyidatun Nisa (s.a.) Hussain sajaday se utthay to sar kattey huwe Dar e Zahra (s.a.)
  14. Salaam! On Youtube, Allama Sayyid Mukhtar Shah Qadri Rizvi has a series of lectures on the lives of famous awliya Allah. Amongst this lecture series he also has started a series of lectures on the lives of the Imams. He has done from Imam Zayn al Abidin (as) to Imam Ali Reza so far ... Here is the link on Youtube for Imam Zayn al Abidin: It is in Urdu/Hindi. I found it very informative, intellectual, and (in this one) emotional. I hope all fair minded people will enjoy listening to it to increase their love of Ahlul Bayt and Aal Muhammad (sal allahu alayhi wa sallam).
