Answer:

 

Visiting dargahs and auliyaas

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.

 

Your Statement: .People say.

Who exactly are these People????

 

If by the term People you mean Allah and His Messenger (saws), by all means take, accept, follow, and obey every single Command which comes forth from Allah and His Messenger (saws)..that would be the Straight Path (Siraat ul-Mustaqeem).

 

But if by People you mean anybody else other than Allah and His Messenger (saws)..then one has to be extremely careful in believing what such people say! If such people say something which is in accordance with the Guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws), by all meansaccept and follow what is said. But if such people say anything which is against the Guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws), never ever accept it as the Truth!

 

Your Question: .People say that Allah comes very closure to the places where Aouliya Allah are resting(Dargah) or you can say Allah ki Rehmath ziyada hothi hai waha par jaha aouliya allah araam farmatey hai,

First and foremost brother, in light of the Guidance of the Glorious Quran and the authentic and established Sunnah, there is absolutely no reason to believe that Allah Subhanah is very close or closer to the places where Awliya Allah are resting (Dargahs)!!

 

It might be true that the ignorant amongst the people might say or have said this.what is indeed confirmed that such a thing is not declared by Allah Subhanah or His Messenger (saws).and thus it can neither be confirmed, nor believed!!!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 186:


And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!

 

Allah Subhanah Himself Declares in His Glorious Quran whom He is close and near to.and that is to all His sincerely believing slaves.so close is Allah Subhanah that our Lord All-Knowing All-Wise Declares in Truth that He is closer to man than mans very own jugular vein!!!!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 50 Surah Qaf Verse 16:

16 It was We who created man and We know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein.

 

Your Question: .so what is wrong visiting this aouliya allah and ask from only Allah, dua`a khubul honey ke chances ziyada hotey hai is it true pls clarify.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 186:

And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!

 

If one wishes to make supplications to their Lord Most Gracious, one may do so form wherever one isfor the Lord Most Merciful is quite near to each and every individual with His Knowledge and He hears and responds to the supplications of the suppliant from wherever it may be made. Thus if one wishes to make supplications to their Lord, they do not need to go visit a makbara or dargah!

 

It is permissible in Islam to make supplications for the deceased in the graves and for oneself when visiting the graveyards; but if (Allah forbid) one were to invoke the deceased or make supplications to them instead of for them, then without an iota of a doubt, that would be a manifestation of the unforgivable and heinous abomination of shirk in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!

 

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 18 Surah Kahf verse 102:

What? Do these people, who have disbelieved, presume that they would make My servants their auliyaas besides Me? We have prepared Hell for the hospitality of such people.

 

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.

 

Your Statement: ..dua`a khubul honey ke chances ziyada hotey hai is it true pls clarify.

Allah Subhanah and His Messenger (saws) have nominated the places, times, and acts wherein the chances of ones dua or supplications are better accepted..it would be absolute ignorance and foolishness to say the least if one left the Guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws) regarding the places, and times, and acts nominated by them where supplications are better accepted and follow what some people have self-invented and fabricated!!!!

 

The places, times, and acts as nominated by Allah and His Messenger (saws) where supplications are better accepted are:

  1. The Sacred Houses of Allah or Masaajidsfrom the humblest one amongst them to three Sacred Harams in Makkah, Madinah, and Al-Quds.
  2. The holy month of Ramadan
  3. The last ten days of the month of Ramadan
  4. The odd nights amongst the last ten nights of Ramadan
  5. The night of the Laylatul Qadr in Ramadan
  6. The days and nights of the Hajj season
  7. The days and nights of the two blessed Eids
  8. The day of Friday or Al-Jumuah
  9. The last third of every night or the time when the voluntary Tahajjud prayers are offered.
  10. The five appointed times of obligatory prayers of the day and night.
  11. After any good deed one does for the Sake and Pleasure of Allah Subhanah Alone.

Etc. etc.

 

Respected brother, it would be nothing but ignorance, foolishness and indeed an insult if one were to leave the Guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws) regarding the places, times, and acts which they themselves have nominated, and follow what some ignorant amongst people say are the best places or times to make supplications!!!

 

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

 

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,

 

 

Burhan
