Posts Tagged ‘Similarities between Shiism & Qadyanism – The Deniers of Seal of Prophethood!’

Muslims believe that Prophet (saw) was the seal of Prophethood, and when we say that we mean to say that, there will be “no divinely appointed human sent by Allah”. But a deviant sect named as qadiyanis play word games in order to fool people, they claim that Muhammad (saw) was the final prophet (NABI), but he was not a final messenger (Rasool), and there can be messengers even after  Muhammad(Saw), thus using these word games they claim that Ghulam Ahmed Qadiyani was a Rasool (messenger).

This sect was unanimously declared as kaafirs (disbelievers) by musliims, because when quran says: Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the last (end) of the Prophets(nabieen).(33:40) , it puts an end to Prophethood as well as Messengerhood. In other words it set and end to divinely appointed authorities by Allah.

It is even evident from an authentic narration:

Sahih Muslim 4.661:

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “The Israelis used to be ruled and guided by prophets: Whenever a prophet died, another would take over his place. There will be no prophet after me, but there will be Caliphs who will increase in number.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What do you order us (to do)?” He said, “Obey the one who will be given the pledge of allegiance first. Fulfil their (i.e. the Caliphs) rights, for Allah will ask them about (any shortcoming) in ruling those Allah has put under their guardianship.”

Comment:

This narration proves that , There will be no prophet after prophet Muhammad(saw), (mentioning that he was final prophet itself was a proof that there wasn’t any divinely appointed ruler after him) but prophet (saw) didn’t stop there, he even clarified that there wasn’t any divinely appointed person after him (Saw), because Prophet (Saw) said “obey the one who will be given the pledge of allegiance first” , if at all there was any divinely appointed caliph he would have said “obey the divinely appointed caliph after me”. But he(saw) didn’t say so, which proves that there wasn’t any divinely appointed ruler after him. This narrations leaves no doubt in the mind of intelligent and unbiased people that there will not be any divinely appointed leader after Prophet Muhammad(saw).

Belief of Shias:

Now what needs to be realized is that the beliefs of the shias aren’t that different from the Qadiyanis, even the shias are in a way deniers of seal of Prophethood and like the Qadiyanis even the shias play the word games in order to fool people.

Shias have given all the similar qualities which a Nabi (prophet) possesses, to their Imams, but they play safe when they propagate their heretic beliefs in the muslim ummah. But the truth is that just by changing the label the product doesn’t change, for example: One can sell wine labeling it as Apple Juice, and it gets an approval from Government, but changing the label doesn’t changes what is there in the bottle, it will still be wine and will be forbidden to consume. Similarly shias, have fooled their followers by making them believe in people who had the same qualities like a Prophet has, but they just termed those people not as prophets but as Imams, but changing the label doesn’t changes the reality.

Lets see what is the definition of a Prophet, Imam and Messenger and what are the differences among all these divinely appointed authorities in the light of authentic shia narrations:

Narration 1:

جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ أَخْبِرْنِي مَا الْفَرْقُ بَيْنَ الرَّسُولِ وَ النَّبِيِّ وَ الْإِمَامِ قَالَ فَكَتَبَ أَوْ قَالَ الْفَرْقُ بَيْنَ الرَّسُولِ وَ النَّبِيِّ وَ الْإِمَامِ أَنَّ الرَّسُولَ الَّذِي يُنْزَلُ عَلَيْهِ جَبْرَئِيلُ فَيَرَاهُ وَ يَسْمَعُ كَلَامَهُ وَ يُنْزَلُ عَلَيْهِ الْوَحْيُ وَ رُبَّمَا رَأَى فِي مَنَامِهِ نَحْوَ رُؤْيَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ ع وَ النَّبِيُّ رُبَّمَا سَمِعَ الْكَلَامَ وَ رُبَّمَا رَأَى الشَّخْصَ وَ لَمْ يَسْمَعْ وَ الْإِمَامُ هُوَ الَّذِي يَسْمَعُ الْكَلَامَ وَ لَا يَرَى الشَّخْصَ

Hasan b. Abbas once asked Imam al-Rida, peace be upon him, in a letter. “What is the difference between a messenger, a prophet, and an Imam?” The Imam answered as follows: “The messenger (rasul) is a person to whom Jibril descends and who both sees him and hears the words that he speaks. He is thus in communication with divine revelation (wahy), which he sometimes receives in the form of a dream, as was the case with Ibrahim, peace be upon him. The prophet (nabiyy) sometimes hears the words spoken by Jibril and at other times sees him without hearing anything from him. The Imam hears the words that Jibril utters without seeing him.”

Narration 2:

مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ الْأَحْوَلِ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ع عَنِ الرَّسُولِ وَ النَّبِيِّ وَ الْمُحَدَّثِ قَالَ الرَّسُولُ الَّذِي يَأْتِيهِ جَبْرَئِيلُ قُبُلًا فَيَرَاهُ وَ يُكَلِّمُهُ فَهَذَا الرَّسُولُ وَ أَمَّا النَّبِيُّ فَهُوَ الَّذِي يَرَى فِي مَنَامِهِ نَحْوَ رُؤْيَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَ نَحْوَ مَا كَانَ رَأَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص مِنْ أَسْبَابِ النُّبُوَّةِ قَبْلَ الْوَحْيِ حَتَّى أَتَاهُ جَبْرَئِيلُ ع مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ بِالرِّسَالَةِ وَ كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ ص حِينَ جُمِعَ لَهُ النُّبُوَّةُ وَ جَاءَتْهُ الرِّسَالَةُ مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ يَجِيئُهُ بِهَا جَبْرَئِيلُ وَ يُكَلِّمُهُ بِهَا قُبُلًا وَ مِنَ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ مَنْ جُمِعَ لَهُ النُّبُوَّةُ وَ يَرَى فِي مَنَامِهِ وَ يَأْتِيهِ الرُّوحُ وَ يُكَلِّمُهُ وَ يُحَدِّثُهُ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَكُونَ يَرَى فِي الْيَقَظَةِ وَ أَمَّا الْمُحَدَّثُ فَهُوَ الَّذِي يُحَدَّثُ فَيَسْمَعُ وَ لَا يُعَايِنُ وَ لَا يَرَى فِي مَنَامِهِ

“I asked abu Ja‘far, recipient of divine supreme covenant, about the messenger, the prophet and al-Muhaddath (one to whom Divine guidance is reported). The Imam, recipient of divine supreme covenant, said, ‘A messenger is one to whom Jibril (Gabriel) comes openly. He sees him (the angel) and speaks to him. Such person is a messenger. A prophet is one who sees in his dream something like the dream of Abraham (peace be upon him). (Of such dreams) is the dream of the Messenger of Allah, recipient of divine supreme covenant, about reasons and signs of prophecy before the coming of revelation. (He would experience such dreams) until Jibril came from Allah to inform him that he was to be a messenger. In the case of Prophet Muhammad, recipient of divine supreme covenant, when prophecy was established in him then Jibril brought him the message that he was to be a messenger. Jibril would come and speak to him openly. Certain prophets, in whom prophecy had been established, saw in their dreams, the spirit who would come to them, speak and report to them but they would not see the spirit when awake.

Al-Muhaddath (Imam) is one to whom matters of Divine guidance are reported and he hears the reporting but does not see (the angel) openly or in his dream.’”

Source: Al-Kulaynee, Al-Kaafi, vol. 1, pg. 176, hadeeth # 3 Grading: Al-Majlisi said this hadeeth is SaHeeH (Authentic) Mir’aat Al-’Uqool, vol. 2, pg. 289 Bahboodee said this hadeeth is SaHeeH (Authentic) SaHeeH Al-Kaafee, vol. 1, pg. 25

Here is a summary of the differences between a Messenger (Rasool), Prophet (Nabee), and Imaam (Muhaddath) in the light of these shia narrations.

  • Messengers: They see & hear the angel whether they are asleep or awake.
  • Prophets: They see & hear the angel while asleep, but when they are awake they can only hear.
  • Imaams They can ONLY hear the reports, but they DO NOT see the angel whether they are asleep or awake.

So the ONLY difference between Imam and Nabi is that, Nabi can see the angel(only in their dream), where as Imam cannot.

So when Allah said: Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the last (end) of the Prophets(nabieen).(33:40), Did Allah mean that after Prophet(Saw) no one would be able to see jibril ?

We urge every reader to ponder over the negligible difference that shias have made between Nabi and Imam, what would it change if there is going to be person who cannot see the angel(jirbil) in his dream, but can hear him, when Allah said there is not going to be a Nabi after Muhammad(Saw).

Suppose there are two people both equally intelligent, one of them is blind and other is not, now if we teach both of them through recitation a chapter, what difference will it make in the teachings they received? Does being blind would make any difference in the knowledge of the blind person? No, not at all. All the things will be the same. Because they still get the divine revelation without seeing the angel.

So saying that the only difference between Imam and Nabi is that Nabi can see the angel in his dream, where as Imam can’t and both of them can hear the angel then for those whom Allah granted sense there shouldn’t remain any doubt that, even the shias are the deniers of seal of Prophethood like qadiyanis, and they play safe using word games.

It is not for any person to believe, except by the leave of Allah, and He will put the Rijs (doubt) on those who do not reason. Quran (10:100)
