Qasidah Burdah and Ilyas Kandhalvi, The Founder of Tablighi Jamaat

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ


“And invoke not besides Allah, any that will neither profit you, nor hurt you, but if (in case) you did so, you shall certainly be one of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers).” 10:106

Qasidah Burdah and Ilyas Kandhalvi, The Founder of Tablighi Jamaat


In our previous article “Shirk in Qasidah Burdah” we reflected and contemplated on the few lines of the poem by the explanation of Shaykh Muhammed Jameel Zeeno [rahimahullaah] and it became crystal clear that it contain major polytheism (Ash-Shirkul-Al-Akbar) which was a result of author’s exaggeration in rising Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)to the status of a deity.

Salafi Scholars have been refuting various deviant ideologies since the early times. These ideologies are in opposition true aqidah and manhaj Salaf as-Salih, one of such ideology is Sufism which has spread as a cancer. Many groups have adopted it and have been actively engaged promoting it, one such group is Tablighi Jamaat which was founded in India by a ashari, maturidi deobandi sufi called Ilyas Kandhalvi.

As the hidden agenda of Tablighi Jamaat is to propagate Sufism, its founder was committed to it even on his death beds.

IIyaas Kandhalvi, stated in his last conversation to ‘’Maulana’’ Yusuf, his successor : “‘Ulama should read the Qasida Burda and the Shiyam al-Habeeb with respect and honor; otherwise, without respect and longing, it will be of no use. From reading the Shiyam al-Habeeb, the reality of Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam’s position and rank becomes evident. With the Qasida Burdah, attachment (with Rasulullah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) is established.”

Shirk in Qasida Burda Saudi Scholars


I would like to conclude with above official Fatwaa issued by permanent committee of scholars, Saudi Arabia forbidding reading of Qasidah Burdah and point out shirk in it.

They said :

The verses contain Shirk because the poet seeks refuge in other than Allah at the time of calamity on the Day of Resurrection. Seeking refuge in other than Allah is Shirk because it is a kind of worship that is dedicated only to Allah. Moreover, the poet describes this world and the Hereafter as one of the bounties of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and this is definitely false, a sort of exceeding the proper limits, and a kind of dispossessing the sovereignty of Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He). Finally, he writes that of the Prophet’s knowledge is his knowledge of Al-Lawh-ul-Mahfuzh (the Preserved Tablet) and the Pen. This description denotes that he knows the Ghayb (the Unseen) while Allah (Glorified be He) states : Say: “None in the heavens and the earth knows the Ghaib (Unseen) except Allâh”

This fatwaa was given by five scholars :

Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd [rahimahullaah]

Shaykh Abdul-`Aziz Al Al-Shaykh [hafidhahullaah]

[Current Grand Mufti Of Saudi Arabia]

Shaykh Salih Al-Fawzan [hafidhahullaah]

Shaykh Abdullah Ibn Ghudayyan [rahimahullaah]

Shaykh Abdul-`Aziz ibn `Abdullah ibn Baz [rahimahullaah]
[Late Grand Mufti Of Saudi Arabia]

Don’t forget to read the article : SHIRK In “Qasidah Burdah”

Note :

Dear Muslim brothers and sisters upon us is to Fear Allaah as he should be feared and disassociate from those who are upon misguidance.

We need to safeguard our Eman and that can only be done by seeking the correct Islamic knowledge from the authentic and reliable scholars. We need to learn more and more about Tawheed and Sunnah so that we may not fall into Shirk, Bidah and other deviations. All success and glory is in strongly adhering to Aqidah and manhaj of Salaf as-salih as they were upon haq (truth).
