” Bismillahir Rahmannir Raheem “”Al-Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbil ‘Aalameen was Salaatu was- Salaamu ‘Alaa Sayidinaa Muhammadin wa Aalihi wa Asabihi Ajma ‘een (tauheed- risalat- ahkirat and islam-iman-ihsan)
Imam Shafi’i (d. 204/820) has said, “Anything which has a support (mustanad) from the shari’a is not bid’a, even if the early Muslims did not do it” (Ahmad al-Ghimari, Tashnif al-adhan, Cairo: Maktaba al-Khanji, n.d., 133).
….. “Indeed Allah has given me strength via four deputies – two in the heavens and two upon the Earth. Jibra’il and Mika’il are my deputies in the heavens and Abu Bakr and ‘Umar are my deputies in the Earth.( Tabrani, Abu Nu’aym in ‘Hilyat al-Awliya’)
Imam Bayhaqi narrates from ‘Abdullah ibn Salam (ra) that the most honoured (mu’azzaz) in the whole of creation is Hazrat Abul Qasim ﷺ. ( al-Khasa’is al-Kubra, Mustadrak al hakim)
… “By Allah! I do not give anything to anyone neither do I deny anything to anyone. I am only the distributor and I allocate the treasure where I have been ordered to”.Commentating on this hadith, ibn Qayyim writes:“For these treasures, Rasulullah ﷺ only exercises his authority (tasarruf) according to the will of Allah just as a slave whose job it is to undertake all that his master orders”. (Tareeq al-Hijratain, p.17 )
“I have been granted the keys to the treasures of the world”.Commentating on this hadith, ‘Allama Manawi writes:“By this it means the treasures of the universe. Rasulullah ﷺ grants as much as people require. Whatever transpires in the universe is due to Allah’s will and Rasulullah ﷺ’s granting because he has the keys. Just as the keys to ‘Ilm al-Ghayb Kulli are with Allah alone, similarly the keys to the treasures have been given to Rasulullah ﷺ by Allah and whatever is given from these treasures is granted by the hand of Rasulullah ﷺ”. (Faid al-Qadeer Sharh Jami’ al-Sagheer, vol.1, p.574)
“Allah gave the authority (ikhtiyar) to Rasulullah ﷺ to choose whether he wants to be an ‘Abd Nabi or Baadshah (King) Nabi. Rasulullah ﷺ chose the former and forsake authority of the treasures of the world and due to this he was given authority (tasarruf) to the treasures of the heavens. Hence, the Sun was returned after it had set, the Moon was split into two, the Shayateen were pelted with stars, the doors to the skies were opened, rainfall was granted and stopped, the winds were blown then halted, the clouds offered their shade and many other unnatural occurrences transpired”. (Faid al-Qadeer Sharh Jami’ al-Sagheer by Imam Manawi, vol.1, p.148)
“I am the Sayyid (leader) of all people on the day of Judgement”.Commentating on this, Imam Nawawi writes:“Qadi ‘Iyad says that a Sayyid is he who is the highest amongst his nation and to whom people turn towards in difficulty. Rasulullah ﷺ is the Sayyid of all people in this world and in the hereafter. The day of Judgement has been mentioned specifically because on this day there will no other leader and all people will accept him”. (Sharh Sahih Muslim, vol.1, p.11)
..…there is no other judge (hakim) in the whole of creation apart from Rasulullah ﷺ. Only he ﷺ is the ruler and no-one from the creation rules over him. So whenever he says yes or no, then he will always be correct and will judge according the will of Allah. Only an enemy will oppose his ruling, though there is no other ruler apart from Rasulullah who can stop his judgement and refute it. Therefore, whatever Rasulullah ﷺ says, he is the most honest”. (Naseem al-Riyad by Allama Shihab ad-Din Khafaji, vol.2, p.35)
“Rasulullah ﷺ is the Khalifa of Allah and the Lord Almighty has bestowed the treasures of his grace in the hands of Rasulullah ﷺ and His blessings in Rasulullah ﷺ’s control. He has made everything obedient to Rasulullah ﷺ, therefore, Rasulullah ﷺ has the authority to allocate and to deny these blessings”. (al-Jawahir al-Munazzam by ‘Allama ibn Hajar Makki, p.42)
“Rasulullah ﷺ is the epicentre of all occurrences. Hence, whatever can occur can only do so from Rasulullah ﷺ and whatever good takes place, it is by the permission of Rasulullah ﷺ”. (Mawahib al-Ladunya by allama qastalani , vol.1, p.34)
“When Rasulullah ﷺ decides something, this decision cannot be stopped. There is nothing in creation that can halt the decision of Rasulullah ﷺ”. (Sharh Zarqani ‘ala al-Mawahib by Imam ‘Allama Zarqani, vol.1, p.35)
“In Sahih Muslim, one of the titles attributed to Rasulullah ﷺ is “Shaafi”, ( شافى ) meaning he removes illness and difficulty and whatever complication befalls the ummah, Rasulullah ﷺ removes it”. (Sharh Zarqani ‘ala al-Mawahib by Imam ‘Allama Zarqani, vol.3, p.152)
I believe it is due to his hadith that the Durood al-Taj contains the words“Daafiil balaa wal wabaa wal qahti wal maradi wal alam”.
When I want to talk to Allah I say prayers and when I want that he talk to me I recite quran- Hazrath Ali(ra)
