Seek intercession of moulvi.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My Question is about
the shirk and Duwaa. Alhamdullah i belief in Allah and offers 5 time prayers
and also believe that what Allah do is for our betterness. Now we have a
Moulana from whom i said for Duwaa and mostly when i was in Tention regarding
job or my life i ask him to pray for me and for my family and when he do pray
all the works will goes fine. He said your close relative or my wife relatives
dont want to see your life happy. For this Duwaa he ask for some
"hadiya" which i gave to him. So is it comes in a shirk or what we
call it? because my only purpose is to solve the problem and thanks for Allah
for helping me and Make Moula as Vasila. I strongly beleive in Allah and know
that nothing is happen except the will of Allah.
Please clarify it so that i will be on righ path.

Seek intercession of moulvi
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 155-157:
155 Be sure We shall test you with something of fear, and hunger, some loss in goods, or lives, or the fruits (of your toil); but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.
156 Who say when afflicted with calamity: "To Allah we belong and to Him is our return."
157 They are those on whom (descend) blessings from Allah and Mercy, and they are the ones that receive guidance.
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 4.1
Abu Hurairah narrates that the Prophet (saws) said: "When Allah wants to be good to someone, He tries him with some hardship."
Abu Hurairah reports that Allah's Messenger (saws) said: "For every misfortune, illness, anxiety, grief, or hurt that afflicts a Muslim -even the hurt caused by the pricking of a thorn - Allah removes some of his sins."
Dear and beloved brother, when one is afflicted by any type of trial or affliction, one should know with total and absolute conviction that the affliction is no more than a test from their Lord, and none save the Lord has the Power and the Ability to remove that affliction from them.
One who is afflicted by any trial can and should make as many supplications as they please unto their Lord Most Merciful to have mercy on them, bestow patience upon them, make their trial easy for them, and make the trial a means for their rewards.
Your Statement: Now we have a Moulana from whom i said for Duwaa and mostly when i was in Tention regarding job or my life i ask him to pray for me and for my family and when he do pray all the works will goes fine.
There is also absolutely no harm in Shariah if one asks or requests one amongst their believing loved ones to make supplications to the Lord for them; but to believe that ones trial and affliction can only be removed if a particular person or holy man is approached, or that the supposed holy man was the reason their affliction was moved away from them, or to do any rite or ritual prescribed by the supposed holy man when that rite or ritual is not endorsed by the Quran and the Sunnah, etc.then without an iota of a doubt, all such acts and beliefs would constitute the manifestation of the abomination of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
None save Allah Subhanah has the Power to afflict someone with a trial; and none save Him Alone has the Power to remove that affliction.
Your Question: He said your close relative or my wife relatives dont want to see your life happy.
Unless the supposed holy man has received (Allah forbid) a Revelation from the Lord, or unless the supposed holy man was visited by Hadrat Jibrael (a.s.) and informed about it, or unless the supposed holy man claims he possesses the knowledge of the unseen(all of which are absolutely impossible!!!)..how on earth can this person claim to know that the reason for your afflictions is because one amongst your close relatives or your own in-laws are responsible for the trials that befell you from your Lord!
Beloved brother, know and believe with total and absolute conviction that no harm and no good can approach you from any quarter whatsoever without the precise Will and Permission of Allah Subhanah..and if Allah Wills to bestow His Mercy and Favor upon you, all of mankind and all the jinns can strive altogether but they will not be able to prevent that Favor of the Lord from reaching you! And if Allah Subhanah wishes and pleases to test you and afflict you with a trial, Allah is our witness brother, all of mankind and all the jinns together cannot remove that trial from you! Everything, absolutely everything that happens in the Universe is in the Hands and Domain of none save the One Lord and Creator, Most Majestic, Most Supreme.
Allah Says in His Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2:
2 What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind there is none can withhold: what He doth withhold there is none can grant apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 160:
If Allah helps you none can overcome you: if He forsakes you who is there after that that can help you? In Allah then let believers put their trust.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 17:
17 "If Allah touch thee with affliction none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness He hath power over all things.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 3:
And put your trust in Allah Alone; and enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51:
Say: "Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector"; and on Allah let the believers put their trust.
Your Question: .For this Duwaa he ask for some "hadiya" which i gave to him. So is it comes in a shirk or what we call it?
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verses 34-35 :
O you who believe! There are indeed many among the priests and the holy men who devour the wealth of others by evil means, and debar the people from the Way of Allah. Give them the good news of a painful torment, who hoard up gold and silver and do not expend these in the Way of Allah. The Day shall surely come when the same gold and silver shall be heated in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their bodies and their backs. (And it will be said): Here is that treasure you had hoarded up for yourselves! Taste now the evil of your hoarded treasure!
First and foremost brother, if any supposed priest or holy man asks for a material or personal reward for their services..immediately drop that person and his services like a bad-habit and know with absolute conviction that the person, although dressed in the look and garb of Islam is no more than a petty conman and crook who makes his living by inventing, creating, and instilling the fear of the unseen elements like jinns, magic, evil-spirits, etc. in the hearts of his unsuspecting victims! Allah is our witness brother, such unscrupulous priests and supposed holy men may choose to look, portray, and adorn themselves in the garb of Islam, but they barter away guidance for a few paltry coins..and because they sought the Blessed Name of Allah and Islam to con and cheat people, they will be amongst the worst people in the Sight of the Lord on the Day of Judgment! Neither will the Lord even glance His Look of Mercy towards such enemies of the Truth, nor will He even speak to them, nor will He purify them, but they will be given a painful and humiliating torment for their malpractice in the Name of Allah and Islam.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Al-Baqarah verse 174:
Indeed those, who conceal the commands that Allah has sent down in His Book and barter them away for paltry worldly gains, fill their bellies with fire. Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He regard them as pure and there is a painful torment for them!
Your Question (Again): .For this Duwaa he ask for some "hadiya" which i gave to him. So is it comes in a shirk or what we call it?
If one were to believe that their trials and afflictions can only be removed if they obeyed or paid the hadiya to the supposed priest or holy man.indeed that belief would constitute a manifestation of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
If one were to believe that their trials and afflictions were caused because of the unseen reasons given by that supposed priest and holy men.. indeed that belief would constitute a manifestation of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
If one were to do any act, or deed, or rite or ritual prescribed by such supposed unscrupulous priests and holy men in their efforts to remove their trial from them, especially when that act, or deed, or rite or ritual has not been endorsed in the Quran or the Sunnah.without an iota of a doubt.such deeds would constitute a manifestation of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
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 5 Surah Maidah verse 72:
Whoever commits shirk (invoking anything with
Allah), Allah shall forbid for him
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
