General Beliefs

  1. One's Imaan (faith) is complete only when one regards Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as true in every respect and accepts everything from them. To doubt any aspect of Allah and His Propet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or to reject it, or to find faults with it, or to mock at it will remove faith.

  2. To reject the clear meanings of the Quran and Ahadith, or to interpret them according to ones own ideas amounts to disbelief.

  3. To regard a sin as permissible removes faith.

  4. No matter how serious a sin may be, as long as it is regarded as a sin, faith is retained though it gets weaker.

  5. To be absolutely fearless of Allah, or to despair of His mercy amounts to kufr (disbelief infidility).

  6. To ask someone of unseen things (ghayb) and to believe in that is kufr.

  7. No one knows the unseen except Allah. However, certain things are made known to Prophets through revelations (wahi), to walis through manifestations and inspirations (kashf and ilhaam), and to ordinary people through signs.

  8. To call a person a kafir (disbeliever) by name or to curse him is a major sin. However, we can say in general terms: Allah's curse be on the oppressors, or Allah's curse be on the liars. If Allah and His Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have cursed someone specifically by name, or informed us of them being kafir; it will not be a sin for us to call them kafir or mal'un (accursed).

  9. When a person dies and if he is buried, then after he is buried; and if he is not buried, then in whatever state he may be in; two angels come to him. One's name is Munkar and the other is Nakeer. They come and ask him: "Who is your creator? What is your Deen?" and pointing to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, "Who is this person?" If the deceased was a strong believer, he will answer all the questions correctly. Thereafter there will be all sorts of comforts for him. They will open a window towards jannah from which a cool and fragrant breeze will continue blowing and he will continue sleeping peacefully. As for the one who was not a believer, to all the questions he will reply that he does not know anything. Thereafter, he will be subjected to great hardships and punishment right until the day of qiyaamah. Allah Ta'ala exempts some people from this test, but all these things are known to the deceased only. We cannot see these things, just as a sleeping person sees everything in his dream, while a person sitting next to him remains totally unaware.

  10. The deceased is shown his abode every morning and evening. A jannati (dweller of paradise) is given glad tidings by being shown his abode in paradise, while a jahannami (dweller of hell) is shown his abode in hell and thereby made more despondent and wretched.

  11. We can make dua for the deceased and give charity on his behalf. Rewards reach him and be very beneficial for him.

  12. All the signs of qiyaamah as foretold by Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will definitely occur. Imam Mahdi will appear and will rule with absolute justice. The one-eyed Dajjal will appear and cause a lot of corruption in the world. Hadrat Isa alayhis salaam will come down from the heavens in order to kill him and will succeed in killing him. Yajuj and Majuj are a very powerful people. They will spread all over the world and create a lot of mischief. Then Allah will destroy them. A strange animal will come out from the earth and converse with people. The sun will rise from the west. The Quran will be raised and within a few days all the Muslims will die and the world will be filled with kuffar. Many other incidents will also take place.

  13. When all the foretold signs are observed, the Last Day will come. Allah will instruct Hadrat Israfeel alayhis salaam to  blow the trumpet. This trumpet will be in the shape of a very large horn. With the blowing of the trumpet, the earth and skies will be blown into smithereens. All the creatures will die, and those that have already died, their souls will become unconscious. But those whom Allah wishes to protect, will remain as they are. A specific period will pass in this condition.

  14. When Allah wishes the entire universe to arise again, the trumpet will be blown a second time. When it is blown, the entire universe will be re-born. All the dead will be brought to life and they will all gather in the field of resurrection. Fearing the difficulties of qiyaamah, they will all approach the Prophets for intercession and Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will intercede. The scales will be raised and all good and bad deeds will be weighed and accounted for. A few people will enter paradise without reckoning. The pious people will be given their record of deeds in their right hands while the sinners will be given in their left hands. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will make his followers drink water from the Haud-e-Kauthar (the fountain of abundance). The water of this fountain will be whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. Everyone will also have to cross the Sirat. The pious, will cross it over into paradise. While the sinners, will fall down into hell.

  15. Hell has already been created. It has snakes, scorpions and many other types of punishments. Among the dwellers of hell, those that have even an iota of Imaan will be taken out of it and admitted into paradise after having  received the share for their evil deeds, and after their punishment after the intercession of the Prophets and pious slaves of Allah, irrespective of how great sinners they may have been. As for the disbelievers and polytheists (mushrikeen) they will abide therein forever and will not even die.

  16. Paradise has also been created and has various types of comforts and luxuries. The dwellers of paradise will have fear or concern whatsoever. They will abide therein forever. They will neither come out of it, nor die.

  17. Allah has the full right to punish minor sins or to forgive over major ones and not to punish at all.

  18. Allah does not ever forgive kufr or shirk. Apart from this, whatever other sins there may be, He will forgive whoever He wishes out of His mercy.

  19. Apart from all those whom Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have named as will enter paradise, we cannot say about anyone else that they will enter paradise. However, we should be optimistic and hopeful of His mercy, when deserving deeds are performed.

  20. The greatest bounty in paradise is the vision of Allah. In comparison to this pleasure, all other bounties will be insignificant.

  21. While awake, no one has seen Allah with his eyes in this world, nor can anyone see Him.

  22. A person may have been good or bad all his life, he will be recompensed according to the state in which he dies.

  23. Whenever a person repents or accepts Islam, his repentance or Islam will be accepted by Allah. However, at the time of death, when he is breathing his last and he sees the angels of death, neither repentance nor his accepting Islam will be acceptable.
