Questions and answers of Madani Muzakarah

Knowledge of Sayyiduna Aadam

Question 1: Did Sayyiduna Aadam عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام have the knowledge of all things?

Answer: Yes. In the Holy Quran, Almighty Allah has said:

وَ عَلَّمَ اٰدَمَ الْاَسْمَآءَ كُلَّهَا

And Allah Almighty taught the names of all things to Aadam.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 31)

Almighty Allah bestowed the knowledge of each and every thing upon Sayyiduna Aadam عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام whether living or non-living. (Tafseer Khaazin, part 1, Al-Baqarah, Taht-al-Ayah: 31, vol. 1, pp. 44; Madani Muzakarah, 03 Rabi’-ul-Awwal 1440 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Real name of A’la Hadrat

Question 2: What is the real name of A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه?

Answer: ‘Muhammad’. His grandfather called him ‘Ahmad Raza’ which is his famous name. (Tazkirah Imam Ahmad Raza, pp. 2, summarised)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Blessing of conveying reward

Question 3: If anyone conveys the reward of all of his good deeds; will there be any good deed left in his Book of Deeds?

Answer: Yes. Good deeds will exist in his Book of Deeds. In fact, his good deeds will increase by the blessing of conveying reward to other Muslims. A big advantage of conveying reward is that the reward reaches all of those it is conveyed to and the reward-conveying person gains the reward equivalent to the reward of all of them. (Derived from: Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 1, pp. 850; Madani Muzakarah, 10 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Fluttering eyelids

Question 4: Some people say that the fluttering of the left eyelid is not something good. Is this right?

Answer: According to Islamic teachings, it is not permissible to take something as a bad omen. Probably, people take the fluttering of the left eyelid as a bad omen, thinking that something terrible is going to happen because the left eyelid is fluttering today. Whether left or right or even both eyelids flutter, it is not permissible to take it as a bad omen. (Madani Muzakarah, 02 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

(In order to know more about “bad omen”, read the book “Bad-Shuguni” published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah.)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Immortal things

Question 5: Which are the things that Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ will keep intact and will not cause them to be doomed to extinction despite the occurrence of the Judgement Day?

Answer: In his book ‘Al-Budoor-us-Saafirah’ [اَلْبُدُوْرُ السَّافِرَہ], ‘Allamah Jalaluddin Suyuti Shaafi’i رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has narrated: Seven things will not be doomed to extinction [i.e. they will not cease to exist]. (1) The ‘Arsh (2) The Kursi (3) The Lawh (4) The Qalam (5) Heaven (6) Hell (7) Souls. (Al-Budoor-us-Saafirah, pp. 32; Madani Muzakarah, 05 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

Compassion for Ummah

Question 6: After our Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was laid in the blessed grave; what were the words he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was uttering?

Answer: It is stated in the book ‘Madarij-un-Nubuwwah’ [مَدَارِجُ النُّبُوَّۃ] that Sayyiduna Qusam رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُ was the person who came out of the blessed grave after laying the blessed body of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in it. He رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُ stated: I am the last person who saw the blessed face of the Greatest Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in the blessed grave. I saw that the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was moving his blessed lips in his blessed grave. I brought my ears closer to his blessed mouth, so I heard that he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was saying ‘رَبِّ اُمَّتِی اُمَّتِی’ (O Lord! My Ummah! My Ummah!). (Madarij-un-Nubuwwah, vol. 2, pp. 442; Madani Muzakarah, 04 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

Pehlay Sajday pay rauz-e-azal say Durood

(Hadaiq-e-Bakhshish, pp. 305)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

A’la Hadrat and Hajj

Question 7: How many Hajjs and ‘Umrahs did A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه perform?

Answer: He رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه performed two Hajjs and perhaps did not separately travel for the purpose of ‘Umrah.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Munkar and Nakeer in grave

Question 8: In which form will the angels, Munkar and Nakeer, come in the grave?

Answer: They will come in the grave in such a horrifying appearance that no one may have seen it before. Bahar-e-Shari’at states: When burying people walk to return after they have buried the deceased person; he (i.e. the deceased person) hears their footsteps. At that time, two angels come to him, tearing apart the ground with their teeth. They have very frightening faces with dark bodies, dark and blue eyes like a cauldron that fire will be emanating from. Their hairs will be hanging from head to toe and their teeth will be as long as the length of many arms. They will come, tearing apart the ground with their teeth. One of them is called Munkar and the other Nakeer. They shake the deceased person to the core, sit him by telling him off, and ask him questions very strictly in a hard tone. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 1, pp. 106; Madani Muzakarah, 04 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1440 Hijri)

Kharay hayn Munkar Nakeer ser per, na koi haami na koi yaawer!

(Hadaiq-e-Bakhshish, pp. 181)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد
