MOVING FORWARD TOWARDS...

...THE OFFICE OF PROPHETHOOD

It cannot be said conclusively that the office of Prophethood is his last target, but there is a distinct approach towards this office. Therefore, after this Maulvi Abul Hasan Nadvi has quoted that incident of Maulana Ilyas, which is connected with the Revelation from Allah.

´Maulana Ilyas used to say that when I indulged in the remembrance of Allah (Zikr), I used to feel a burden on my mind. I related this to Hazrat Gangohi, who was alarmed to hear it and said: ‘When Molvi Qasim Nanotwi made the same complaint to Haji Sahib, Haji Sahib (his Spiritual leader) replied that Allah shall enable him to accomplish some service to Islam.’´ (Deeni Dawat, pp/45)

I do not understand why a writer of Maulana Abul Hasan Nadvi’s fame has bypassed the quotation of the actual incident. This was not the reply of Haji Sahib that ´Allah shall take some work from you,´ but the actual incident is that when Maulvi Qasim Nanotwi had complained to Haji Sahib: ´I am entangled with troubles whenever I sit down with a Rosary. I feel so much heaviness in my mind as if someone has placed stones on me weighing hundreds of pounds. I become speechless and my heart also sort of closes.´ (Sawaneh Qasmi, Book 1, pp/258, Darul Uloom Deoband)

On this Haji Sahib said, addressing him, ´These are benedictions of apostlehood on your heart and that is that ‘heaviness’ which the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) felt at the time of Divine Revelation. Allah wishes to extract that work from you which was taken from the Messengers.´ (Sawaneh Qasmi, Book 1, pp/256)

Now in the light of these details, according to the writing of Maulana Abul Hasan Nadvi, we learn that a similar incident was repeated with Maulana Ilyas meaning thereby that on his heart also the benedictions of apostlehood happened and he also felt (Allah Forbid!) the heaviness of Divine Revelation as was experienced by the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).

Upto this point there was a silent stride towards the office of Prophethood, and now there is a claim of appearance like the Messengers of Allah. Maulana Ilyas claimed that the commentary and explanation of the Quranic verse: ´You are the best of people, evolved for mankind, enjoining good and forbidding evil.´ has been explained to him VIA a dream in these terms: The author of Malfoozatê Ilyas writes about his claim in his book as follows: ´He said that this was revealed to him in a dream that he had been designated to people like the Prophets of Allah.´ (Malfoozat. pp/51)

La Ilaha Illalah (There is no God except Allah). Look at this blasphemy. Allah Himself has revealed the verse quoted above and He has interpreted its comments. The only difference is that this verse was revealed to Hazrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), the Holy Prophet, but the verse and its commentary was revealed to Maulana Ilyas. Hence, if the verse and its interpretation have been revealed by Allah, who shall be the revolting servant of Allah that he may believe one and disbelieve the other?

Are you observing, how a stride towards the office of apostlehood has been taken, that even if a man wants to deny it, he may remain over-whelmed with the grandeur and awfulness of the manner of the statement. Approximately for fourteen hundred years this verse has been recited in the Islamic World, everybody has understood that this verse has been revealed in favour of Ummaté Muhammadi, that you are the best Ummah, this is your responsibility that you should call people towards good and restrain them from adopting evil, but after fourteen centuries this fact has come to light for the first time today, that, Allah forbid, this verse has been revealed for Maulana Ilyas and its interpretation is that Maulana Ilyas has appeared like a Messenger of Allah for the sake of humanity!

May Allah protect us, for when a man has become tyrannical he performs sensational nerve-shaking, provocative deeds. It is said that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani attempted a similar joke with a verse of the Holy Quran: ´In the revelation of the said verse of the Quran, Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, means myself (Allah forbid!). (meaning Mirza Qadiani).´(Akhbarul Fazal Qadian, 15 July 1925)

Think carefully, in order to revolt against the proven Tenets of Islam it was no less a crime for Maulana Ilyas to claim to be similar to Prophets, using the Quranic verses to back up his argument. To crown it all he claims that Allah has revealed it to him.

On one side there is a claim of the office of apostlehood, and on the other side the concocted interpretation of the verse, thirdly, false accusation against Allah. Just consider how many sacred things were killed in cold blood with just one blow.

Let us see what effect these revelations had on Maulana Ilyas’s followers, and in this case I shall point out two incidents only.

Maulana Abul Hasan Nadvi has written in his book, ´Deeni Dawat´ that once the news of the death of Maulana Ilyas was wrongly circulated in Delhi, and on this rumour a large crowd gathered.

He writes that to deny this report the necessity of a speech was felt on this occasion. Now read the incident after that from his own pen: ´Moulana Manzoor Nomani gave an effective speech according to the occasion on the subject of ‘Wa Ma Muhammad-un-Illa Rasul . . .´ (Deeni Dawat pp/181)

And then this very verse was recited on that day on which Maulana Ilyas actually died.

Hence Ali Mian writes that when his coffin was placed in the open field on that occasion: ´It was instructed by Sheikhul Hadith Maulana Zakaria and Maulana Mohammad Yusuf that people should be assembled in the ground and they should be addressed: ‘And what can be more effective condolence than the topic of Wa Ma Muhammadun Illa Rasul.’´ (Deeni Dawat, pp/186)

The readers must bear in mind that this verse was recited by Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (Radiallahu Anhu) on the departure of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) from this world and he assured the Companions in the light of this verse that Huzoor (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) had passed away. The translation of this verse is: ´Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and there were many Messengers before him.´

After the clarification of the meaning of this verse and also the time and place where it was utilised, now it is a matter to consider as to why, on the death of Maulana Ilyas, this verse was recited again and again, when there are numerous verses on the topic of death in the Holy Quran.

This explains clearly that the status of Maulana Ilyas, in the eyes of his followers, was not less than that of a Prophet, that is why on his death the verse quoted above was recited which was revealed to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and the Companions of the Prophet recited it at the time when the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) departed from this world.

In the long period of fourteen centuries, millions of dignitaries of the Ummah and enlightened people of Allah have passed away from this mortal world, but nowhere it is proved that this verse had been interpreted for the death of a greater personality. Therefore, in the light of the above-said incidents it is clear that because of an indirect claim of revelation by Maulana Ilyas, people of the Tableeghi Jamaat were so much influenced, that in their eyes the status of Maulana Ilyas was equal to the status of the Messenger of Allah.
