Maulana Muhammad Hussain Najafi (Maulana Dhaku) is an educated but controversial scholar from Pakistan due to his fatwas. His following is very limited. Most Pakistani Shia follow well known scholars of Iraq and Iran.

Muhammad Hussain al-Najafi is doing a great job removing a lot of the bid`ah that Indo-Paks have that the Arabs and Iranians scholars are not aware of. He has clear fataawa against some major practices in and around India and Pakistan that have no basis in our sources, while the wakeels of al-Sistani and other major scholars in India and Pakistan do not call these practices out.

 

Some of his interesting fataawa:

 

1.) Against 3rd testimony in Adhaan (See: http://sibtain.com/en/Questions_Answers_Third_Shahadat.aspx)

2.) Says Jumu`ah is Wajib `Ayni (i.e. like your normal prayers) (See his Qawaneeh al-Sharee`ah, vol. 1)

3.) Against the Kunday Niaz that happens in Rajab (see his Islaah al-Rusoom, pg. 283-284)

4.) Against the Kahani of Bibi Fatima that is read by Indo-Paks (see his Islaah al-Rusoom)

6.) Against 3rd Testimony in Tashahhud (See: http://sibtain.com/en/Questions_Answers_Third_Shahadat.aspx)

The Arab and Iranian scholars are surrounded by Indian and Pakistani students. Grand Ayatullah Bashir Najafi is himself a Pakistani. It is unlikely that they are unaware of their practices.

I heard they feel that the format of the athan was not fixed. However there is a trend away from adding other statements, most people I see now do not do it.

these are not big issues. But apart from these he has some other different views than other major scholars like the following.

 

1. He denies that Prophet (pbuh) and Imamain (a.s) were created by light. He says that this is bidah introduced by "Shaikh Hassaan" who was founder of firqa Shaikhiya in Shias. He says they were created by dust like us. Prophet (pbuh) did not have shadow because a cloud was always there on his head to cover him (pbuh).

 

2. He denies "Wilayat e Takwinia". He admits only to the extent that Prophet (pbuh) have only authority to send message of Allah and not more than this. Miracles etc were only shown to prove the truth of Prophets. 

Maulana Muhammad Hussain Najafi (Maulana Dhaku) is an educated but controversial scholar from Pakistan due to his fatwas. His following is very limited. Most Pakistani Shia follow well known scholars of Iraq and Iran.

 

Even many main Shia scholars of Pakistan do not agree with him. Like once i asked about him to "Ayatullah Naveed Asghar Shamsi" who is Paish Imam of Masjid Imam e Zaman a.s haider road Islampura. He replied that "Dhaku Sahib even deny some admitted facts"

O People! Why is he hated? Because he doesn't shy from saying the truth. 

He speaks out loud against the bidats common in Pakistan. Why? Because majority of shias here are unfortunately Illiterate, ignorant and poor. Zanjeer zani etc. are quite common among them, pulpits (the amanat of Prophet (S.A.W.W.)) are being misused to the extremes by Zakirs(not all) to misguide people.

Its not easy to stand on Haq (the Right path), and he has had the most difficult of lives and he is persistent and unbending. Yeah! This is the thing, he doesn't bend the Truth!

I have never met him nor have I heard him speak. However the more I hear about the man, the more I like him.

I have heard many people abuse him vilify him and cast doubt on his parentage all because he will not bend the truth.

In reality most people argue and abuse from a position of ignorance. More often then not it exposes them for what they are,

Many Zakirs hate him because they 'trade' in these false stories. If people rejected the false stories it would effect their income.

This is what some Shias have become they trade in the blood of Imam Hussain (as)

Salaam.

#1 happens in every single shia Masjid in Iraq and Iran so this is not an indo-pak issue. all marajae say it is optional.

#6  - all marajae are unanimous in saying this is haram.

Funny why the 3rd testimony in Athaan has become an issue. Since it is acknowledged and accepted that the 3rd testimony in Athaan is not part of the Athaan why should anybody protest if he highlights it and doesn't allow it in his institutions.

it seems to me that people who are protesting against him highlighting this fact intrinsically feel it should be part of the Athaan and So protest against him highlighting it. This is called changing your Fiqh by stealth.

The problem is that a large proportion of Shia are ignorant of basic Shia Fiqh and get flummoxed when faced with real Shia Fiqh.

When faced with 'truth' they resort to abuse and physical violence

@A true Sunni It's become an issue because as far as I know he is the only molana forbidding people to say ali- yunwaliullah in Azaan. Other marjas not only allow it and but say it in Azaan themselves. Are Ayatollahs Sistani and khamenei also ignorant of basic Shia fiqh?

I have nor read the exact wording of his ruling on the Athaan however lets assume you are right and he actually forbids it rather then 'not recommended'.  

He is being cursed and villified for forbidding something that is not part of the Athaan anyway.

Since 3rd testimony is not part of the Athaan why would anybody be the target of hatred for forbidding it unless people were slipping and sliding into becoming Akhbari.

It is time people from the Indian sub-continent decided whether they are Usooli or Akhbari

This isn't an akhbari issue, because akhbaris are supposed to follow what the narrations say, and as there are no narrations about adding to the adhan, this is more of a cultural shia thing.

They allow it but categorically state that it is not part of the Athaan. They allow you to say it on the basis that it is possible to interrupt the Athaan to say something and then continue the Athaan

Thanks for correcting me. I read my post after and realised I should have wrote 'malang'. The point still holds that we are cursing someone who forbids something that isnt part of the Adhaan anyway

Ayatullah Sistani and Khameni allow you to say the 3rd testimony during Athaan as long as you say it knowing and recognising that it is not part of the Adhaan.

They allow you to say it on the basis that it is possible to interrupt the Athaan to say something and then continue the Athaan .

This distinction might appear to peculiar to the uninitiated but it is an important distinction.

In fact according to Agha Khameni & Sistani if you say 3rd testimony during Adhaan thinking it is part of the Adhaan, your Adhaan is invalid .

So the point I am making is why are people cursing and vilifing someone who is forbidding something that is not part of Adhaan anyway
