Ameenpeer Dargah – Pedda Dargah

Ameen Peer Dargah (Asthana-e-Magdoom Ilahi Dargah complex) (Badi Dargah, Pedda Dargah) in Kadapa (Cuddapah) is an example of the communal harmony preached by great saints and sages in ancient days. Come Thursday and Friday, scores of pilgrims cutting across religious faiths, throng the the 300-year-old shrine seeking blessings of saints Peerullah Hussaini and Arifullah Hussaini II who lie buried here.

Followers of the dargah believe that any wish that one makes at the shrine is always fulfilled. A large number of Hindus, Muslims and people of different faiths are disciples of the shrine. The family’s descendants identify themselves with a saffron dresss and the disciples wear a saffron cap.

Khwaja Peerullah Hussaini (popularly known as Peerullah Malik), a devout Muslim born in Bidar (Karnataka), founded the Aasthana, in 16th century. Peerullah Malik was a linage to Prophet Mohammed. He visited mausoleums of all Sufi saints of India, as also that of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti at Ajmer, where he received instructions to move to the kadapa region. On the way, he stopped on the banks of Pennar River (near Chennur). Nawab Nek Naam Khan, the then Nawab of Sidhout Taluk also presented himself to the Sufi and paid his respects. Following the instructions of the saint, the Nawab named the town as Nek Naam Abaad, which later became Cuddapah, over a period of time. The saint devoted his life to spread the message of peace, love and communal harmony.

Legend has it that once some people demanded that they would trust him only if he could show them a miracle. The Sufi accepted their challenge. The earth opened for him and he descended into it alive, thereby attaining Jeeva Samadhi (1716 AD)here on the 10th day of Muharram month (first month of Muslim calendar). Three days later, people saw him performing prayers in the same place. After his death, Nawab Abdul Hameed Khan Mayana got his mausoleum built. Just to the east of the mosque, Peerullah’s tomb is found in a closed room with two entrances, one each in the western and southern walls. Flocks of pigeon descend on the tomb complex and are fed by the pilgrims. Peerullah’s Urs is celebrated on the 10th day of Muharram every year.

Khwaja Peerullah had two sons. One of them died childless. The other son Arifullah Hussani-I attained higher levels of mysticism and spirituality. His son Ameenullah Hussaini-I, had three sons: Shah Peerullah Hussaini, Yadullah Hussaini-I, and Arifullah Hussaini-II.

Arifullah Hussaini II was a devout Sufi and he immersed himself in the love of God. Legend has it that he once paid a visit to his grandfather’s tomb at Bidar. The gateman asked for his credentials and refused to open the door for him. The saint called (Ya Jaddi, O’ father) loudly. Then a voice from the tomb (Marhaba Ya Waladi, Come, my son) welcomed him. The door automatically opened for him. Arifullah II spent some time there, and then shifted to the mausoleum of Ameenuddin Aala at Bijapur. He went to Ahmedabad and Ajmer, where he received instructions for going to Tadipatri (Anantapur District). He spent 40 years in deep meditation and prayers in the caves and forests of Tadipatri. It is also believed that a python used to stay guard outside his cave. He came to the forests of Gandi in Cuddapah district and spent his time in prayers till he turned 63. Besides being a saint of high order, he was also a great scholar, and an eminent poet.

There is a wide hall aligned along the east west axis containing a number of tombs. The highest tomb among them belongs to him, whose Urs is celebrated in Jamadi’ul Awwal (5th lunar month) of Muslim calendar. It is the biggest Urs of South India. The entire mausoleum complex is popularly known as Aasthana-e-Maqdoom’ullahi.

This Urs brings millions of pilgrims to Kadapa from every nook and corner of the country, from as far as Delhi, Agra, Ajmer, Chennai, Bangalore, Calcutta, Jammu, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Bhopal, and so on. The main festivities start with the sandal paste ceremony. It is taken out in the night and Fateha is offered at the tomb of the saint. The sandal paste is treated as Tabarruk (prasada) and is distributed to the devotees. The main Urs ceremony is held on the second day. Fakirs and devotees present Chadar at the tomb of the saint. Qawwali programme is held on both nights. A national-level Mushaira (poetry programme) is held on the third night which continues upto early morning. Masjid-e-Azam is an impressive mosque with Persian inscriptions. It dates back to A.D. 1691 and was built during the reign of Aurangazeb.

Disciples of Hazrath Amin Peer saab and Shah Meer saab school of thoughts.. exist all over Rayalseema and Coastal districts and carry out welfare activities on a large scale. When ever there was an outbreak of cholera in Kadapa town , residents use to consider Ali Murad saab as their savior and special prayers were conducted at his shrine; even todate (on a lesser extent though) this practice continues. Hazrath Rafeeq Shah Vali Saab is said to be a saviour of people suffering from mental illness and evil spirits.

The shrine is one of the most peaceful and serene spots in Kadapa, free from distracting noises. One should pay a visit to this shrine to savour the magic of silence, if not for anything else!

    Assalamalikum Brothers, iam syed nazeem from kadapa-kuwait….
    first of all, i thankful to Allah who give us life and hidayat of deen-e-islam. and also i appreciate the web owner who made good website.but here iam giving some clarification to our muslims brothers as well as our hindu/christian brothers.

    Do you go to Tombs of saints (dargahs) for help?

    Tombs of saints – known in the Indian subcontinent as dargahs – are worship places, where dead saints are venerated and worshiped. This is not permissible as all types of worship and veneration should be for Allah alone. Allah says:

    “…So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.” (Qur’an, 18:110)

    The whole Qur’an is full of verses that make worship exclusively for Allah alone. Shirk – setting up partners with Allah – came into human beings by exalting pious individuals to the level of God. This is how mankind deviated from the pure worship of Allah. For instance, Jesus (peace be upon him) is worshiped, though he was a messenger like other messengers before him, albeit with different miracles and qualities. Allah gave special qualities to every prophet and messenger.

    And (remember) when Allah will say (on the Day of Resurrection) : “O Jesus, son of Mary! Did you say unto men: ‘Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah?’ “ He will say: “Glory be to You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my inner self though I do not know what is in Yours, truly, You, only You, are the All Knower of all that is hidden and unseen. Never did I say to them aught except what You (Allah) did command me to say: ‘Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ … (Qur’an, 5:116-117)

    Some Muslims too have fallen into a similar trap out of extreme veneration of saints. They now go to dargahs hoping the saints will answer their pleas or will at least intercede to Allah on their behalf. So they direct inner and outer acts of worship to these dead people.

    Inner acts of worship are, for example, submission, extreme humility, hope, trust, and love in a manner that should be directed toward Allah alone. They have faith that dead people have miraculous power to solve their problems. One must think that when people cannot unconditionally help us when they are alive, then how could they help us after death when they are in a life of Barzakh that has nothing to do with the life of this world?

    Outer acts of worship done at these places include Sajdah, Tawaf, and the many other innovated forms of rituals they do. However, only Allah deserves all types of worship, and it should be done in the manner He taught us through the Messenger. Allah says in the Qur’an:

    “And the mosques are for Allah (Alone), so do not do du’a to anyone along with Allah.” (Qur’an, 72:18)

    “And when My servants ask you (O Muhammad, peace be upon him) concerning Me, (then answer them), I am indeed near. I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me.” (Qur’an, 2:186)

    Making du’a to anyone else is not only the worst possible deed (Shirk), but it is also futile – because it is not based on revelation or reason. When we know that Allah is our Creator, He is the Provider, He is the Lord, He is the Most Merciful, He has power over everything, He Hears us, and Answers us, then shouldn’t He alone be worshiped?

    Just why should anyone else be worshiped? They can’t do us anything. They too are totally dependent on Allah.

    We worship Allah because He alone truly deserves to be worshiped. There is no being deserving or worthy of our worship except Allah. This is the meaning of “La ilaha illAllah.”

    People who leave their Lord and ask others – whether that other is a prophet or an angel or a saint or a stone or an idol – are Miskeen because instead of asking the One who is Capable of giving them what they want, they are asking those who are helpless.

    “O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily, those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatches away a thing from them, they will have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought.” (Qur’an, 22:73)

    “O mankind! it is You who stand In need of Allah, but Allah is rich (Free of All wants and needs), Worthy of All praise.” (Qur’an, 35:15)

    Going to the graves of saints and directing acts of worship to them is Shirk because humans are given a divine status that rightly belongs to Allah alone. Allah says:

    Say (O Muhammad, peace be upon him): “Do you order me to worship other than Allah? O you fools!” And indeed it has been revealed to you (O Muhammad, peace be upon him), as it was to those (Messengers) before you: “If you join others in worship with Allah, (then) surely, (all) your deeds will be in vain, and you will certainly be among the losers.” Nay! But worship Allah (Alone and none else), and be among the grateful.

    They made not a just estimate of Allah such as is due to Him. And on the Day of Resurrection the whole of the earth will be grasped by His Hand and the heavens will be rolled up in His Right Hand. Glorified is He and Exalted is He above all that they associate as partners with Him! (Qur’an, 39:64-67)

    The Prophets came to guide people when they fell into Shirk. They were an example of perfect worship to Allah. Prophet Muhammad’s life (peace be upon) is such an example. The Companions, the best generation, and those who came after them were strongly upon this belief.

    They never went to the grave of the Prophet (peace be upon him) for help or to make du’a because this contradicts the fundamental message and belief that the Prophet came with. Our Salah is a direct connection with our Lord. What we say in it, if we understood it, is proof of that faith.

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said near the end of his life: “May Allah curse the Jews and the Christians, for they have taken the graves of their Prophets as places of worship.” (Al-Bukhari, Book of Funerals, no. 1330; Sahih Muslim, Al-Masajid, no. 529)

    He said to Ali: “Do not leave a picture except that you erase it, nor an elevated grave except that you level it.” (Sahih Muslim, no. 969)

    He (pbuh) also said: “Verily, those who were before you all, used to take the graves of their Prophets and righteous people as Masjids. So, do not take the graves as Masjids, for verily I prohibit you all from that.” (Sahih Muslim, no. 532)

    Umm Salamah and Umm Habibh mentioned to the Prophet a church that they saw in Ethiopia and the pictures in it. So, he said: “These are people that whenever a righteous man dies among them, they build a Masjid over his grave and make these pictures in it. These people are the worst of creation with Allah.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

    It is incumbent on Muslims to realize the dangerous pit many have fallen into out of exaggeration. It is necessary upon us to educate and carry the message of Tawheed to others.

    even if you any doubts about your religion or about islam. please drop me a email or put your comments on this webstite, however i will answer to our brothers.

    please follow Quran aur Hadiths, i can give many ref from quran and hadiths and also from your books bible or vedas…. please finish to pray for tombs or idols or seeking blessing from and one other than ALLAH.

    Assalamalikum Brothers,

    iam very happy that our brothers showing the right knowledge to our muslims brothers, those who are visiting ‘DARGAS’ it is not at all permit in islam and it is not sunnat ul jamat, it is a sufi jamat which came from Shiya… any have which ever jamat we have to follow only Quran aur Hadiths thats all, we respect the one who pass already and we respect the one who is alive today but we never go and pray at tombs of saints it is a SHIRK and ALLAH never forgive this type of sin.,

    i appreciate to brother Syed Nazeem Ahmed and also to syed sabjan. because they are inviting to peoples on a right path… Allah May give reward to all our brothers who is following Quran and Hadith, how well our brother Dr.Zakir naik is doing today. he is the person who is inviting to muslims and non muslims to the right of Mohammed(SAW).

    Here iam coating some Quran ayat and also some hadiths :

    Surah An-Nisaa(4:115) : And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger of ALLAH. Mohammed{PBUH} after the right path has been shown clearly to him and follows other than the Sahaba ways. we shall keep him in the path he has chosen and burn him in Hell-what an evil destination,

    Surah Al-Anam- (6:106) : Follow O Muhammad(PBUH), what has been revealed to from your Lord – there is no deity except Him, and tyrn away from those who associate others with Allah.

    Surah Al-Anam – (6:107) : But if Allah had willed, they would not have associated and we have not appointed you over them as a guardian nor are you amanager over them.

    Sahih Al-Bukhari – 1/3 No.109 : Allah’s Messenger(PBUH) said : “whoever intentionally ascribes to me what i have not said then surely let him occupy his seat in Hellfire”

    inshaALLAH we will follow according to Quran aur Hadiths.

    islam starts from saudi and spread through out the World with the help of follower of prohpet Muhammed(s.A.W) and especially in india islam came with the help of great saints eg:kwaja ajmeeri R.A etc.,
    islam is simple in understanding so follow it carefull

    As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah`s Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

    dear brother

    every one accept that the last “haq” of a dead body is to bury it, the method is mentioned in islam, and last thing we can do for a dead body is to recite the “talqeen” on the grave,, after that it is all between this deadbody and allah,, then why these quls , dua, daswan , beseewan , chalisswan are celebrated, why these quran khawanis helf for this departed soul, who in fact according to nature and according our religion, which is said the religion of nature,, Deen-e-fitrat, that once a person died he/she has not connection this world, in any form,,, why is necessary to build the “pakki qabrain” people build, and why we see all the roza of prophet, his kaliphat, his “all-i-rasool, the mazar of darwaish,, is it necessary,, will islam not survive if people dont go for the ziarat and hazri of these rozas and mazars,, while it is said that the responsibility of protecting islam ,

    quran and sunnah was taken by Allah himself,,,

    if Allah have all powers and gives some power to his dear people , prophets, momeen etc. than is not it like the bhagwan who made devi and devatas and gave them different powers, made some god of war, some god of agriculture, some god of justice etc. is not it the same in islam, the rozas and mazars, same thing

    is it neccessary, is it a source, that god needs, you see just like Allah created us but thru parents,, so some people say these are the sources,,,,,, but the confusion is that how people go for what is right and what is wrong, when there are so many mazars, rozas, shrines, peer aulias,, al-e-rasool,

    sahaba-e-rasool,, all are different,,, who is right

    totally confused,,,, hope you might remove this confusion

    (There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

    Answer:

    Share in power shirk graves and dargah

    In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

    Your Question: …..then why these quls , dua, daswan , beseewan , chalisswan are celebrated, why these quran khawanis helf for this departed soul,

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 164:

    Every soul draws the meed of its acts on none but itself: no bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another. Your goal in the end is toward Allah: He will tell you the Truth of the things wherein ye disputed.

    Abu Hurairah reported that The Prophet (saws), said, `When a person dies all his good deeds cease except for three:

    1. a continuous act of charity,

    2. beneficial knowledge, and

    3. a righteous offspring who prays for him`.“

    Related by Muslim and Abu Dawood.

    In light of the above guidance of the Quran it is absolutely clear that every soul will draw the meed or merit of its own deeds; and in light of the absolutely clear guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) all the deeds of a deceased are ceased except for three:

    continuous act of charity: ie. the charity done by the deceased like building a school, or a hospital, or a mosque, or a well, etc. which is still being utilized for the good of man even after his death….the deceased shall earn a reward for such continuous deeds of charity even after his death.
    beneficial knowledge: ie. if the deceased strove and exhorted someone to believe and obey their Lord Creator, or the deceased gave someone a copy of the Glorious Quran, or some good advice, etc….then he will continue to receive the rewards of every good that person did on his advice.
    righteous offspring: ie. the near and loved ones who constantly supplicate their Lord to forgive their deceased loved one.

    Many amongst the Prophet’s (saws) own family and companions died in his own lifetime, but there is absolutely no evidence in the authentic and established Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) ever performed the rites or rituals of ‘quls, daswan, beseewan, chalisswan, quran khawanis,’ etc. for the benefit of the deceased soul; nor did he (saws) ever endorse the performing of such acts!

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzab verse 21:

    There is indeed the best example for you to follow in the Messenger of Allah, for every such person looks forward to Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much.

    If one follows or does any rite or ritual or act of worship in Islam which is not specifically endorsed by the Messenger of Allah (saws)….then one should know with total and absolute conviction that such self-invented and innovated rites of supposed worship are a manifestation of ‘bida’ and absolutely unacceptable to Allah Subhanah!

    For an act, or deed, or rite or ritual of worship, celebration or commemoration of a day or night, etc. to be considered a part of worship in Islam, or for it to be considered acceptable and pleasing to the Lord Creator, it is absolutely imperative that this act, or deed, or rite or ritual of worship, or the celebration or commemoration be endorsed by Allah and His Messenger (saws). It that act or deed or celebration in Islam is not endorsed by Allah and His Messenger (saws), then it would not constitute an acceptable or meritorious deed in the Sight of the Lord.

    Therefore if someone starts or follows the self-invented rites and rituals of ‘quls, daswan, beseewan, chalisswan, quran khawanis,’ etc., assuming it to be an act of worship, or a rite which will bring about the Pleasure or Good Will of Allah Subhanah, or a ritual which will benefit the soul of the deceased in any way whatsoever, he will be inventing a thing in the deen of Islam which is not from the deen! And that is exactly what the Messenger of Allah (saws) termed as ‘bidah’ or innovation; and every single innovation in the pure and perfect deen of Islam is an error, a sin, and absolutely detestable to the Lord Most Majestic.

    Aisha narrated that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: ‘If somebody innovates something which is not present in our religion, then that thing will be rejected.’

    Related by Bukhari.

    Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4515 Narrated by Ali ibn AbuTalib

    That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said: “If anyone introduces an innovation (in religion), he will be responsible for it. If anyone introduces an innovation or gives shelter to a man who introduces an innovation (in religion), he is cursed by Allah, by His Angels, and by all the people.”

    Sahih Muslim Hadith 1885 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah

    That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said in a sermon: “The best speech is that which is embodied in the Book of Allah, the Al Quran; and the best guidance is the guidance given by me, Mohamed (saws). The most evil affairs are the innovations, and every innovation is an error.”

    The act that the Messenger of Allah (saws) himself did and guided the believers to do for the benefit of their deceased loved ones who died in the state of belief was to make sincere supplications for them; beseech their Lord in all humility, and hope, and fear that the Lord Most Gracious shower them with His Mercy, bestow on them His Grace, forgive them their shortcomings and their sins, and grant them an honorable rank in the Hereafter.

    Your Question: ……why is necessary to build the “pakki qabrain” people build, and why we see all the roza of prophet, his kaliphat, his “all-i-rasool, the mazar of darwaish,, is it necessary,,

    Jabir reported: “The Prophet(saws) forbade the whitewashing of a grave, sitting on it, or erecting any structure on it.”

    (Related by Ahmad, Muslim, Nasa`i, Abu Daw`ud, and Tirmidhi.)

    Abu Hurairah reported: “The Prophet (saws) said: `May Allah destroy the Jews, because they used the graves of their prophets as shrines (places of worship).“ (Related by Bukhari and Muslim)

    Aishah reported: “Umm Habibah and Umm Salamah mentioned to Allah`s Messenger (saws) a church in which they saw drawings while in Abyssinia, whereupon he (saws) said: `Those people used to build a shrine over the grave of a righteous man among them when he died, and make such drawings in it. These will be the worst of people in the sight of Allah on the Day of Resurrection.“

    (Related by Bukhari and Muslim)

    The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “Before you there was a group who turned the graves of their prophets and their righteous ones into places of worship. Do not tum graves into places of worship. I forbid you to do that`.“

    (Related by Muslim)

    In light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws), it is absolutely prohibited for the believers, who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day, to build any sort of structure over the graves of their deceased…..absolutely regardless of whether that grave happens to be that of a Prophet or one amongst the most pious amongst the believers!

    Your Question: ….will islam not survive if people dont go for the ziarat and hazri of these rozas and mazars,, while it is said that the responsibility of protecting islam ,

    quran and sunnah was taken by Allah himself,,,

    Although Shariah does not prohibit the believers from visiting the graveyards as that would remind them of the Hereafter….the Messenger of Allah (saws) strictly prohibited the believers from undertaking a special journey to visit any place of worship except for the ‘three holy places’….

    Said bin Al-Musayyib reported from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (saws) said, “You should not undertake a special journey to visit any place of worship other than the three Mosques: the Sacred Mosque of Makkah, this mosque of mine (in Madinah), and Al-Aqsa Mosque (of Jerusalem ).”

    Related by Bukhari, Muslim, and Abu Dawud.

    The believers who travel to the holy city of Madinah go there with the intention to offer prayers in the Prophet’s Mosque, and since it so happens that the Prophet (saws) died and was buried in the quarters of Hadrat Aisha (r.a.) which happened to be adjacent to the Masjid of the Prophet, the believers pay their respects by declaring their salutations to their beloved Prophet (saws).

    Allah is our witness brother, had the Prophet of Allah (saws) not died and buried in Madinah, it would not have been permissible for a believer in Shariah to undertake a journey specially to visit the grave of even the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws)!!!

    The ignorant who build structures or ‘mazars’ and ‘rozas’ over the graves of some pious slaves of Allah….and perform the self-invented rites and rituals of ‘haazri’, and ‘urs’, and ‘milaad’, etc. at these shrines are in manifest violation of the guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws)!

    Your Statements: if Allah have all powers and gives some power to his dear people , prophets, momeen etc. than is not it like the bhagwan who made devi and devatas and gave them different powers, made some god of war, some god of agriculture,

    some god of justice etc. is not it the same in islam, the rozas and mazars,

    same thing

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Yunus verse 65:

    65 ….All Power and Honor belong to Allah Aone: it is He (Alone) Who Hears and Knows everything!

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 39:

    39 There is no Power (or Strength) but with Allah Alone!

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 59:

    59 With Him (Allah Subhanah Alone) are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none Knows but He Alone. He Knows whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a Record Clear (with Him).

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verse 189:

    189 To Allah belongs the Dominion of the heavens and the earth; and Allah has Power over all things.

    Without an iota of a doubt, all and absolute Power, and Strength, and Sovereignty, and Dominion belongs to none save the Lord Most Supreme, Allah Subhanah, the One Only Unique and Incomparable Lord, Creator, Master, Sustainer and Cherisher of the universe! There is absolutely no power and no strength except the Power of Allah Subhanah.

    Your Statement: …is not it the same in islam, the rozas and mazars, same thing

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 34 Surah Saba verse 22:

    22 Say: “Call upon other (deities) whom ye fancy besides Allah: they have no power! Not (even) the weight of an atom in the heavens or on earth; no (sort of) share have they therein, nor is any of them a helper to Allah.”

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verses 13-14:

    13 He (Allah Subhanah) merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night and He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law): each one runs its course for a term appointed. Such is Allah your Lord: to Him belongs all Dominion. And those whom ye invoke besides Him have no power in the least!

    14 If ye invoke them they will not listen to your call, and if they were to listen they cannot answer your (invocations). On the Day of Judgement they will reject your “partnership.” And none (O man!) can tell thee (the Truth) like the One Who is acquainted with all things!

    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 53:

    53 Have they (the so-called deities) a share in the Dominion or Power (of Allah)? Behold they give not (or cannot give even) a farthing to their fellow-men!

    If one were to believe that anyone or anything in creation has even an atoms weight of the share of the Power and Dominion of the Lord Most Majestic….or one were to invoke anyone or anything in the ‘unseen’ except Allah Subhanah for their needs and desires…..Allah is our witness brother, they would be guilty of the abomination of the most heinous and unforgivable crime of ‘shirk’ in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!

    Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verse 18:

    These people invoke beside Allah those which can neither harm nor benefit them, and say, “These are our ‘shofa’a’ (intercessors) with Allah!” (O Mohammed (saws)), tell them, “Do you wish to inform Allah of that thing which He knows not in the heavens, or in the earth?” He is absolutely free from, and exalted above the ‘shirk’ that they commit.

    Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 102:

    What? Do these people, who have disbelieved, presume that they would make My servants their ‘auliyaas’ besides Me? We have prepared Hell for the hospitality of such people!

    Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rum verse 40:

    Allah it is Who created you; then provided for you; then He causes your death; then He will bring you back to life. Is there among the associates you have set up (with Allah) anyone, who can do any of these things? Glorified is He and Far Exalted above the ‘shirk’ these people commit.

    Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verses 40:

    Say, “Have you ever seen those associates of yours whom you invoke besides Allah? Tell me: ‘What have they created in the earth, or what is their share in the heavens? Have We given them a Book, from which they derive a clear sanction (for their shirk)”. Nay! These wicked people are only beguiling one another with nothing, but delusion.

    If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

    Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
