Answer:

 

Miracles of syedna

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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

It is evident from your statements that you are indeed a sincere believer in the Syedna and his said miracles. Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, there was a time when I too believed in everything logical or illogical, natural or supernatural deeds reportedly done by the Syedna and those in the graves, until Allah Subhanah blessed me to read the Glorious Quran with understanding which provided the criteria to distinguish between the Truth and falsehood.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 185: Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a Perfect Guidance for mankind and consists of clear Teachings which show the Right Way, and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood.

 

It is only when one is dis-associated with the clear guidance of the Holy Quran that one has blind and unconditional faith in the High Priests and those in the graves, and is ever ready to believe anything and everything which is related to them; things and events which have absolutely no basis or proof done at the mere command and fancies of their High Priests and even those who lie died and buried in their graves!

 

Miracles can be discribed as an act of a super-natural power, which is done out of the routine of nature.

 

Allah has made a way or sabab for everything to happen in this world, and anything that happens beyond this way or sabab is termed a miracle. For example, if one intends to go from New York to Los Angeles, one would have to take the sabab of some kind of transport. If one got up in New York and the next second he is in Los Angeles without any form of transport, it would be deemed a miracle!

 

Miracles are only in the sole domain of Allah Alone and nobody has a right to do any miracles, unless Allah Himself commands and sends the miracle to any of his slaves. No one, absolutely no one, can perform a miracle by his own self; not even the mightiest Prophets of Allah. Allah Subhanah appointed Prophets, and He gave the sign of Miracles to them. Allah gives many examples of His Miracles in the Holy Quran which he gave to Prophet Abraham, Prophet Moses, Prophet Isa and many other Prophets. These miracles were not performed at the whims and fancies of the Prophets, but were always in Allahs Hands and Commands.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad verse 38: And no Messenger had the power to show any Miracles without the sanction of Allah.

 

You will also realize that these fancy stories of miracles are just about related to every idol, every grave which is used as a place of worship, and almost every High Priest of ever misguided sect! There are literally hundreds of these miracles attached to each over a period of time! Remember the miracle of the hindu god ganpati and the drinking of the milk? Remember the story of baby Jesus crying in New York? Remember the water coming out of Raudat Tahera and the other mazaars simultaneously in quick succession, and then suddenly stopped? These stories may have any number of reasons, but once they start, they spread like wild fire and people keep adding their own versions into them. The fact is that only Allah has the right to show miracles and no one else!

 




Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anam verse 37: These people ask: Why has no Sign (Miracle) been sent down to this Prophet from his Lord? Say (O Mohamed), Allah Alone is able to send down a Sign (Miracle), but most of these people do not understand the wisdom underlying it.

 

Whenever one is dis-associated from the Truth and the guidance of the Quran, all sorts of fantastic stories and miracles are reported at the hands of their High Priests and graves by their followers to beguile their followers in believing the falsehood! This system of declaring miracles at the hands of the High Priest and graves or idols is not isolated amongst our Bohra brethren, but such fantastic stories are related time and again by almost all those involved in the belief and worship of falsehoods! Every such sects have their own high priests and graves or idols, and stories very similar to the ones quoted by you are related by their followerswhere the rain, the mountains, the sun, the moon, the seas, the animals, even life and death is at the disposal of these self-invented High Priests!

 

Allah Subhanah has bestowed every individual with intelligence and the power of reasoning; and if one only reads or hears the supposed miracles performed by the Syedna as quoted by you with even an iota of intelligence, one would be forced to declare his disbelief in them!

 

Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, if only you would believe the Truth in the clear Verses of the Quran with the same zest and belief as you have on the self-made stories of falsehood, you would be able to differentiate the Truth from the falsehoods!

 

Your Statement: u told we are doing shirk and considering syedna in the makam of God but i would like to clear u that syedna is not God but he is representative of imam u z zaman . and for u r kind information imam is the true representative of allah .

It is only when one associates a mere human being with the Powers that are exclusive to Allah Subhanah, and believes that rocks, diseases, life, death, and rain, etc. are at the disposal and whims and fancies of a created being rather than The Creator Alone, which gives confirmation that indeed such beliefs are manifestation of the abomination of the most heinous and gravest of sins: shirk!!!

 

The direct result of such stories of fantasy and falsehood at the hands of a self-declared High Priest is that the ones who believe in them bow down in prostration and sajdah to them in absolute awe; start invoking them in the unseen; seeking their help and support; revering them with the awe and adulation that is due to none but Allah Subhanah Alone! They affirm their unconditional obedience to their self-appointed High Priests, and regard as lawful whatever he says is halaal, and regard as unlawful whatever he declares as haraam; regardless of what is declared in the Quran and Sunnah! The poor and misguided souls then consider it an honor and become abde-syedna (slave of syedna), rather than be honored and recognized as Abd-Allah or slaves of Allah Subhanah Alone!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 31: They have made their scholars and their monks as their Rabbs besides Allah!

 

Hadrat Adi bin Hatim (r.a.) who was formerly a Christian before embracing Islam, asked the Messenger of Allah (saws): O Messenger of Allah (saws), the verse of Surah Taubah accuses us of taking our scholars and monks as our Rabbs besides Allah, but we do not really worship our scholars and our monks. The Prophet (saws) asked: Is it not a fact that you accept as lawful whatever they declare as halaal, and unlawful whatever they declare as haraam?. Hadrat Adi (r.a.) confessed: Yes, it is indeed so!. The Prophet replied: What is that other than worship, and the taking of them as your Rabbs!!!.

 

Your Statements: so i warn u to stop writing nonsense about syedna and misguiding the mumineens otherwise consequenses will be worst. allah will not leave u.

have fear of allah

lastly i pray to allah to give u "nek toufik"

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anam verses 81-82: And there is no reason why I should fear those beings you associate with Allah, when you are not afraid of setting up partners with Allah without any authority. Then tell me, which of the two parties merits peace and freedom from fear? It is those who believe and do not confuse their beliefs with wrong (shirk), that are truly in security, and they are the ones who are rightly guided.

 

Dear and Beloved Brother, there is absolutely no reason for the true believers who believe in the One and Only Lord to fear those whom the ignorant associate with Allah Subhanah! In fact, Allah Subhanah demands that those who associate others with Him in His Godhead should fear Him and His Accounting of an Inevitable Day!

 

Only if those involved in the abomination of shirk could realize today the consequences their false belief will bring upon them on the Day of Resurrection! All their services and obedience to their High Priest and his family, and all their prostrations and sajdahs to them, and all their invocations to them, and all their unconditional obedience to them will amount to nothing in the Presence of the Majestic Lord of the Worlds!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 72: Whoever commits shirk (invoking anything with Allah), Allah shall forbid for him Paradise, and Hell shall be his abode. And for such wrong doers there will be no one to help.

 

Allah says in the Quran: Chapter 4 Surah An-Nisa Verse 48: Shirk (associating other deities with Allah) is the only sin that Allah does not forgive, and He forgives, whomsoever He pleases, sins other than this. For whosoever associates any other partner with Allah, does indeed forge a big lie and commits the most heinous sin

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumar verse 65-66: If you commit shirk all your works will be rendered vain and you will be among the losers. Therefore, you should worship Allah Alone, and be among His grateful servants.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verse 2-3: So worship Allah Alone, making your religion His exclusively. Beware! Religion is the exclusive Right of Allah. As for those who have taken other auliyas (guardians) with Allah (and justify their this conduct by saying): We serve them only that they may bring us closer to Allah. Allah will surely judge between them concerning all that in which they differ. Allah does not show guidance to any liar and denier of the Truth.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verse 18: These people serve beside Allah those which can neither harm nor benefit them, and say, These are our shofaa (intercessors) with Allah! (O Mohammed), 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 33 Surah Ahzab verse 66-68: On the Day their faces are rolled about on the Fire, they will say, Would that we had obeyed Allah and His Messenger! And they will say, O our Lord, we obeyed our CHIEFS and our GREAT MEN, and they led us astray from the Right Path. O our Lord, give them a double chastisment and curse them severely.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anam verse 94: (And Allah will say), So, you have come before Us all alone, as We created you at first. Now, you have left behind all that We gave you in the world. Now We do not see with you those shufaa(intercessors), who, you believed, had a share in moulding your destinies! All the relations between you and them have been cut off, and all those, in whom you trusted, have left you in the lurch.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter16 Surah Nahl verses 86-87: When the people who had committed shirk in this world will see those whom they had made associates with Allah, they will say, Our Lord, here are those associate-deities whom we used to invoke besides You. At this their deities will retort, You are liars! At that time, all of them will proffer submission before Allah, and all that they used to forge in this world shall vanish from them.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verse 66: Note it well that all the dwellers of the heavens and the earth belong to Allah. And those who invoke partners besides Allah, follow nothing but surmises and merely indulge in guess-works!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 12 Surah Yusuf verses 39-40: (Yusuf said), O my fellow prisoners, say, which is better: various lords or the One Omnipotent Allah? The lords whom you worship other than Allah are nothing more than mere names that you and your forefathers have invented; for Allah has sent down absolutely no authority for them. Sovereignty belongs to none but Allah. He has commanded that you shall not worship anyone but Him. This is the Right and Straight Way, but most people do not know this.

 

My dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, the choice is yours: either accept the self-invented stories of fantasy and believe them as miracles performed by the High Priest, or believe in what Allah Subhanah Declares in His Glorious Quran! The High Priest and his family invite you to nothing but shirk and the everlasting torture of the Hell Fire; and Allah and His Messenger (saws) invite you to believe in the One and Only Lord of the Worlds and His Mercy and Forgiveness!

 

My dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, just as you have supplicated Allah Subhanah to give us nek tawfeeq, we, as your brothers and sincere well-wishers in Islam invite you to read the Glorious Quran with understanding even only once! It is only the understanding of the clear Message of the Quran that can save oneself from the abomination and the most heinous of sins in the sight of the Lord; that is, shirk!

 

May Allah Subhanah have Mercy upon you and guide you to the Path that is Straight.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he 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), he can be assured of being led astray.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 78: Exert your utmost for the cause of Allah, as one should. He has chosen you for His service and has not laid on you any hardship in your deen. Therefore, be steadfast in the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah had called you Muslims before this, and has called you (by the same name) in this Quran also, so that the Messenger may be a witness in regard to you, and you may be witnesses in regard to the rest of mankind. Therefore, establish the salaat and pay the zakaat, and hold fast to Allah. He (Allah) is your Maula: what an excellent Maula and what an excellent Helper!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verses 13: Then, instead of Allah, he invokes those who can do him neither harm nor good. This is the last extremity of deviation. He invokes those who are more likely to do him harm, than good! What an EVIL MAULA he chooses, and what an evil companion.

 

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

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
