Excerpt White & Black -Allaamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi
These people assert that Prophets[Alaiehis Salaam] commit the same kinds of mistakes as an ordinary man commits. And they also deny that he has any knowledge whatsoever. At the height of their insolence, these people do not spare even Almighty Allaah Himself. They say: “Allaah does not have knowledge of the unseen all the time. He acquires knowledge of the unseen only when He needs to know about it.” They further assert “Allaah speaks lies, and He has spoken lies.” These men of self-proclaimed understanding and perception indulge in such “lofty” nonsensical talks!
It is my belief that no man can attain to Prophet hood, and he upon whom Prophet hood is bestowed no longer remains an ordinary being but rises to the rank of a Prophet. It is not given to anyone in the entire universe to declare somebody a Prophet and it is not within the power of anybody from amongst mankind to proclaim one as a Prophet. A Prophet is only a Prophet, perfect and absolute, sent by Allaah Kareem as His Messenger. Almighty Allaah chose to bestow this position on him whom He made able, and fit, for receiving this position; not any and every body can attain to this chosen status. A person might have devoted his entire being to Allaah, or he might have totally given himself to the remembrance of Allaah, or he might have completely cut himself off from this world, or spent his entire life in the worship of Allaah, but Almighty Allaah may not bestow Prophet hood even on such a person. He bestows the rank and status of Prophet only on him whom He has drawn near to Himself and made His chosen one. And after the appearance of Allaah’s Messenger and last of the Prophets [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]Allaah [Ta’aalaa]put an end to this process of sending Prophets. What greater proof can there be of Allaah’s special favour on my master, the beloved Mustafaa, Muhammad-e-Arabi [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]
Before I wrote the book now before you, this humble person had, in his booklet “From Deoband to Bareilly: the truth”, talked of the reality of the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jama’at’s differences with those who are insolent towards the holy Prophet, and had, also, suggested ways of resolving the differences. That booklet was published by Maulana Okarvi Academy Al’A’lami in South Africa, in English, and, by Almighty Allaah’s grace, had been very popular amongst the general public and had corrected their beliefs.
I had promised my friends in South Africa that I would give a fitting reply to these booklets. By the grace of Almighty Allaah and the kindness of His venerated Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam], I have succeeded in getting published the first part of a rejoinder to these booklets.
During my second visit to South Africa, I had, by way of clinching the issue, personally gone to “Mia’s Farm”, the largest center of the Deobandi Wahaabi propagandists, and submitted to them that this humble person was prepared to substantiate the beliefs and actions of the Ahle-Sunnat-Wa-Jamaa’at, which have prompted the #Deobandi-Wahaabis to accuse them of being “associators” and “innovators”, through books written by the ulama of Deoband and present in my library. ….to be continued .In Shaa Allaah
