Some false beliefs answered
To think according to principle, to possess true faith and believe and accept the true Commands of Islam is known as “Aqeeda”. If one‟s Aqeeda is corrupt, then one‟s Imaan is improper and if one‟s Imaan is not proper, then his Amaal (actions) are useless. In other words, Aqeeda is the soul, Imaan is the body and Amal is the garb.To have good and strong Imaan, one must have the proper Aqeeda. It is for this reason that we quote a few un-Islamic beliefs together with the proper Islamic answers, so that we may, after reading about them, repent from any false and corrupt beliefs that we may hold and, thereafter, hold firmly to the proper Islamic beliefs. To hold improper per Aqeeda leads to Kufr, whereas proper Aqeeda is strength for Imaan. The un-Islamic beliefs which we have quoted below are quotations from those individuals who possess such beliefs and by writing them in this book, we have no intention of Kufr. FALSE BELIEF 1: “Allah can speak lies”. (”Barahine Qaatia” by Khaleel Ambetwi; “Yakrozi” by Ismaeel Dehlwi; “Fatawa Rasheedia” by Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi). PROPER BELIEF: Lies is a defect which is not worthy of the Zaat of Almighty Allah and is totally Muhaal (Impossible) for Almighty Allah. Allah is free from all shortages and defects thus making lies Muhaal for Almighty Allah. FALSE BELIEF 2: To say that Allah is free from place, space, direction and time, etc. is to be misled. (”Izaahul Haq” by Ismaeel Dehlwi) PROPER BELIEF: Time and space have been created and will be eventually destroyed. Almighty Allah is Qadeem (Always Is and Always Will Be). If one accepts Allah to be in a fixed place and in a fixed time zone, then one will have to accept, Ma‟az-Allah, that Allah is a creation and can be destroyed, whereas it is well known that, that which is Haadith (non-Eternal) and can be destroyed can never be Allah. The Being of Allah is Eternal and anything that is non-Eternal cannot be Allah. It is, thus, necessary to accept Almighty Allah to be free from time and place. FALSE BELIEF 3: The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) had died and is mixed in the sand. (”Taqweeyat-ul Imaan” by Ismaeel Dehlwi) PROPER BELIEF: It has been stated in the Hadith: “Verily, Almighty Allah has made it Haraam upon the earth to eat the bodies of the Ambiya”. It has also been stated that Ambiya are alive and are blessed with Sustenance from Almighty Allah. FALSE BELIEF 4: Every creation, no matter how big or small, is equivalent to a cobbler before Allah. (”Taqweeyat-ul Imaan” by Ismaeel Dehlwi) PROPER BELIEF: The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is the most beloved Nabi of Almighty Allah. Almighty Allah took Qasm (Oath) even on the city of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). He is the greatest of the creations of Almighty Allah. His every word is accepted in the Court of Allah. He is a perfection
in the Attributes of Almighty Allah and Allah has not created any unique being besides Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). FALSE BELIEF 5: Ambiya are not totally free from lies. To say that it is not possible for Ambiya to lie or to say that they are totally sinless is false. (”Tasfiyatul Aqaa‟id” by Qasim Nanothwi) PROPER BELIEF: Ambiya and Malaa‟ikah are Masoom (Sinless). It is Muhaal for them to commit sin. Committing a sin is not a quality of Ambiya. Ambiya are free from all small and big sins and all defects even before and after their Nubuwat. FALSE BELIEF 6: The Ummah sometimes supercede the Ambiya in A‟maal (Good deeds). (”Tahzeerun Naas” by Qasim Nanotwi) PROPER BELIEF: A Kaafir can never be equal to a Muslim. An ordinary Muslim is not equal to a practising Muslim. A practising Muslim can never be equal to a non-Aalim, who is not equal to an Aalim. An Aalim is never equal to a Wali, a Wali can never be equal to a Tabbe Taabi‟ee. A Tabbe Taabi‟ee can never be equal to a Taabi‟ee. A Taabi‟ee can never be equal to a Sahaba. A Sahaba can never be equal to the...
