Haazir and Naazir

Allah Almighty has bestowed countless marvels upon His Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. One of them is to be Haazir and Naazir.

Meaning of Haazir and Naazir

Being Haazir and Naazir means to be the one who has  Divinely-given power, who sees the entire universe staying at one place like seeing his own  palm and who hears the distant and nearby voices or visits the entire universe in a moment and helps the needy who are hundreds of miles away. This pace [of visiting the universe] may be either with soul or with a similar body or with the body buried in the grave. (Ja-al-Haq, pp. 116, summarised)

Necessary explanation

We do not claim at all that the apparent blessed body of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is present everywhere. However, the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم can appear at more than one place simultaneously. (Min ‘Aqaaid Ahl-us-Sunnah, pp. 318)

The meaning of Haazir and Naazir can also be understood with the help of an example: The sun exists in the sky with its body, but it is also present on the entire earth in the form of its light and luminosity, similarly, (without comparison) the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is present in his luminous shrine, but he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم sees the entire universe as a person sees his palm. Moreover, he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم sees the deeds of those in his Ummah and he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم also uses the authority granted by Allah Almighty. Our Lord has stated:

اِنَّاۤ اَرْسَلْنٰكَ شَاهِدًا وَّ مُبَشِّرًا وَّ نَذِیْرًاۙ

We have indeed sent you (O Beloved) as present and seeing (Haazir and Naazir) and giver of glad tidings and a warner.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 26, Surah Al-Fath, Ayah 8)

Commentaries

1     ‘Allamah ‘Alauddin ‘Ali Bin Muhammad Khaazin رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has said: O Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! Undoubtedly, We have sent you as the one who observes the deeds and conditions of his Ummah so that you bear witness to them on the Judgement Day and as the one who gives the good news of Paradise to believers and the obedient in the world and as the one who tells unbelievers and the disobedient about the fear of the torment of Hell. (Tafseer Khaazin, part 26, Surah Al-Fath, Taht-al-Ayah: 8, vol. 4, pp. 146)

2     Commenting on this verse ‘We have indeed sent you (O Beloved) as present and seeing (Haazir and Naazir) and giver of glad tidings and a warner’, A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has said: Give the good news of great favour and bounty to the one who reveres you and if anyone blasphemes you, مَعَاذَ اللّٰە, tell him about the fear of painful torment. When he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has become the witness and the observer who makes observations, so it is very appropriate that all the actions and sayings and deeds and conditions of the Ummah be there before him. (And Allah Almighty has given him this status as) in the Hadees of Tabarani, Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Umar رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُمَا has said that the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said:

اِنَّ اللّٰەَ رَفَعَ لِیَ الدُّنْیَا فَاَنَا اَنْظُرُ اِلَیْھَا وَ اِلٰی مَا ھُوَ کَائِنٌ فِیْھَا اِلٰی یَوْمِ الْقِیَامَةِ کَاَنَّمَا اَنْظُرُ اِلٰی کَفِّیْ ھٰذِہٖ

Undoubtedly, Allah Almighty lifted the world in front of me so I am looking at it as well as whatever will happen in it until the Judgement Day as I am looking at this palm of mine. (Kanz-ul-‘Ummal, vol. 6, pp. 189, Hadees 31968; Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 15, pp. 168, summarised)

3     Quranic verse: Allah Almighty has stated:

وَ یَكُوْنَ الرَّسُوْلُ عَلَیْكُمْ شَهِیْدًاؕ-

And this Messenger is your protector and witness.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 2, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 143)

Regarding the commentary of this verse, Sayyiduna Imam Ibn Jareer Tabari رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has narrated that Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed Khudri رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُ said: ﴿وَ یَکُوۡ نَ   الرَّ سُوۡ لُ   عَلَیۡکُمۡ   شَہِیۡدًا  ؕ بِمَا عَمِلْتُمْ اَوْ فَعَلْتُمْ Whatever deeds and acts you perform, the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم will be a witness to all of them. (Tafseer Tabari, part 2, Al-Baqarah, Taht-al-Ayah: 143, vol. 2, pp. 10, Hadees 2186)

Looking like looking at a palm

The concept of ‘Haazir and Naazir’ is also present in many Ahadees. For example:

1     Sayyiduna Sawban رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُ has narrated that the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: Undoubtedly, Allah Almighty has folded the earth for me so I have seen its easts and wests [i.e. all sides and corners]. (Sahih Muslim, pp. 1182, Hadees 7258)

2     Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq-e-A’zam رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُ has narrated that the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: Allah Almighty has presented the world in front of me; I am looking at the world and the incidents which will occur until the Judgement Day like looking at this palm of mine. (Majma’-uz-Zawaid, vol. 8, pp. 510, Hadees 14067)

Sayings of pious predecessors who were leading researchers

1     Sayyiduna Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti Shaafi’i رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has narrated that Sayyiduna Abu Mansoor ‘Abdul Qaahir Baghdadi رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has said:

قَالَ الْمُتَكَلِّمُوْنَ الْمُحَقِّقُوْنَ مِنْ اَصْحَابِنَا اَنَّ نَبِيَّنَا صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم

حَیٌّ بَعْدَ وَفَاتِهٖ، وَ اَنَّهٗ يَسَرُّ بِطَاعَاتِ اُمَّتِهٖ وَيَحْزَنُ بِمَعَاصِی الْعُصَاةِ مِنْهُمْ

i.e. Those companions of ours who are researchers and Mutakallimeen[1] have said: Undoubtedly, our Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is alive even after his blessed demise and feels pleased to see the virtues of his Ummah and feels sad to see their disobediences. (Al-Haawi lil-Fatawa, vol. 2, pp. 180)

2     Sayyiduna Imam Ahmad Bin Muhammad Qastalani رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه, a commentator of Bukhari, has said:

لَا فَرقَ بَينَ مَوتِهٖ وَحَيَاتِهٖ فِی مُشاهَدَتِهٖ لِاُمَّتِهٖ، وَمَعْرِفَتِهٖ

بِاَحْوَالِهِمْ وَنِيَّاتِهِمْ وَعَزَائِمِهِمْ وَخَوَاطِرِهِمْ، وَذٰلِكَ عِنْدَهٗ جَلیّ لَا خَفاءَ بِهٖ

I.e. In terms of observing his Ummah, their conditions, their intentions of the heart and in terms of knowing about their secrets; there is no difference between the blessed demise and blessed life of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. All these things are apparent to him صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم; nothing out of them is hidden. (Mawahib-ul-Ladunniyyah, vol. 3, pp. 410)

3     ‘Allamah ‘Abdul Haq Muhaddis Dihlvi رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has said: None of the Islamic scholars in the Ummah has difference of opinion about the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم being alive with real life. There is not even an iota of doubt about it nor is there any other meaning of it. And he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is Haazir and Naazir regarding the conditions of the Ummah. (Sulook Aqrab-us-Subul ma’ Akhbar-ul-Akhyar, pp. 155)

At another place he رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has said: ‘Shaahid’ means to become Haazir and ‘Aalim about the condition of Ummah, their salvation and destruction and about their acceptance of faith and refusal of faith. (Madarij-un-Nubuwwah, vol. 1, pp. 260)

4          Shah ‘Abdul ‘Azeez Muhaddis Dihlvi رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has said: O people! Your Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم will testify regarding you on the Judgement Day because he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم knows about the status and rank of every pious person through the Noor of Prophethood. He صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم also knows what status so-and-so (follower of his) has attained, knows what the reality of his faith is and also knows that such-and-such a thing has become an obstacle in the way of the progress of his so-and-so (follower). Thus the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم knows about your sins, ranks of faith, good and bad deeds and your sincerity and hypocrisy. (Tafseer ‘Azeezi, part 2, Al-Baqarah, Taht-al-Ayah: 143, vol. 1, pp. 636)

Haazir and Naazir

To affirm that the Beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is the last Prophet of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ is a fundamental belief of Islam. After him, no new Nabi or Rasool of any type has come and nor can come. Of course, near the Judgement Day, Sayyiduna ‘Isa عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام will come but, despite having the ranks of already given Nubuwwah and Risalah, he عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام will not preach his Shari’ah but rather he will come as a deputy and an Ummati of Holy Prophet Muhammad Mustafa صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. (Khasaais-ul-Kubra, vol. 2, pp. 329)

This belief has been described in the Holy Quran in these words:

مَا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ اَبَاۤ اَحَدٍ مِّنْ رِّجَالِكُمْ وَ لٰكِنْ رَّسُوْلَ اللّٰهِ وَ خَاتَمَ النَّبِیّٖنَؕ-وَ كَانَ اللّٰهُ بِكُلِّ شَیْءٍ عَلِیْمًا۠

Muhammad is not the father of any man amongst you. Yes, he is the Messenger of Allah and the Last of all the Prophets, and Allah knows everything.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 22, Surah Al-Ahzaab, Ayah 40)

Here are eight sayings of the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم about him being the last Nabi:

1          فَاِنِّی آخِرُ الْاَنْبِيَاءِ وَاِنَّ مَسْجِدِی آخِرُ الْمَسَاجِدِ: Indeed I am the last of all Prophets and my Masjid is the last Masjid (which has been constructed by a Nabi). (Sahih Muslim, pp. 553, Hadees 3376)

2     I have been made superior to blessed Prophets عَلَیْھِمُ الصَّلٰوۃُ وَالسَّلَام by means of six things:

I have been blessed with Jami’ Kalimat (conciseness).

2   My awe has been instilled and thus I have been helped.

3   Spoils of war have been made Halal for me.

4   For me, entire earth has been made pure and a place to offer Salah.

5   I have been sent to all creatures.

6   Prophethood has been ended through me. (Sahih Muslim, pp. 210, Hadees 1167)

3اِنَّ الرِّسَالَةَ وَالنُّبُوَّةَ قَدْ اِنْقَطَعَتْ فَلاَ رَسُولَ بَعْدِی وَلَا نَبِیَّ   : Indeed Risalah and Nubuwwah have been ended. So, after me, there will neither be any Rasool nor any Nabi. (Tirmizi, vol. 4, pp. 121, Hadees 2279)

4   اَنَا آخِرُ الْاَنْبِيَاءِ وَاَنْتُمْ آخِرُ الْاُمَمِ: I am the last of all Prophets and you are the last of all Ummahs. (Ibn Majah, vol. 4, pp. 414, Hadees 4077)

اَنَا مُحَمَّدٌ، النَّبِیُّ الاُمِّیِّ، اَنَا مُحَمَّدٌ، النَّبِیُّ الاُمِّیِّ، ثلاثًا، وَلَا نَبِیَّ بَعْدِی   : He  said thrice, ‘I am Muhammad, I am Ummi Nabi. And there is no Nabi after me.’ (Musnad Ahmad, vol. 2, pp. 665, Hadees 7000)

6     The respected Prophets عَلَیْھِمُ الصَّلٰوۃُ وَالسَّلَام of the Bani Israel used to run their government. When any Prophet passed away, the other Prophet would come after him. And after me, no new Prophet will come to you. (Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, vol. 8, pp. 615, Hadees 152)

 7ذَهَبَتِ النُّبُوَّةُ، فَلَا نُبُوَّةَ بَعْدِی اِلَّا الْمُبَشِّرَاتُ۔ قِيْلَ: وَمَا الْمُبَشِّرَاتُ؟ قَالَ: الرُّؤْيَا الصَّالِحَةُ يَرَاهَا الرَّجُلُ اَوْ تُرَى لَه   : i.e. Prophethood has gone; so after me, there is no Prophethood but glad tidings. It was respectfully asked, ‘What are glad tidings?’ He replied, ‘A good dream that a person dreams himself or that is dreamt for him.’ (Al-Mu’jam-ul-Kabeer, vol. 3, pp. 179, Hadees 3051)

8اَنَا خَاتَمُ النَّبِيِّيْنَ وَلا فَخْرَ   : i.e. I am the last of all Prophets and I do not say it with pride. (Al-Mu’jam-ul-Awsat, vol. 1, pp. 63, Hadees 170; Tareekh Bukhari, vol. 4, pp. 236, Hadees 5731)
