Blasphemy, Ismaili

Fatwaa ID: 485

asalāmu alaykum.
-is it permissible to build over graves?
-is it blasphemous to say, “may Allāh forgive the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasalam) or the Prophets (alayhimus salām), especially considering that they are māsūm (sinless)?”

  • are ismā’īlīs kuffār? does it matter if they are in the nizarī branch or the musta’lī branch?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. It is not permissible to build structures over graves.
  2. It is futile to say the above as the prophets are infallible. Depending on the context of the statement, it may be deemed blasphemous.
  3. Ismailis are out of the fold of Islam.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.

 اسماعیلی فرقہ کے عقائد مندرجہ ذیل ہیں:
 اللہ سبحانہ وتعالی کو صفات سے خالی مانتے ہیں۔
 یہ لوگ عقل اول کا عقیدہ رکھتے ہیں کہ اللہ نے ایک مخلوق پیدا کی پھر اس سے تمام مخلوق پیدا ہوئی، نیز یہعقل اول اللہ تعالی کی صفات کی حامل ہے،
 معجزات کو باطل سمجھتے ہیں۔
 ختم نبوت کا انکار کرتے ہیںاور محمد بن اسماعیل کو آخری نبی مانتے ہیں۔
اولیاء کی اطاعت انکے نزدیک فرض ہے، فطاعتہ اللہ مقترنۃ بطاعتھم۔
انکے ائمہ اللہ تعالی کے نور سے ہیں اور انکے اجسام عام انسانوں کے اجسام کی طرح نہیں ہے۔
صحابہ کرام رضی اللہ عنہم سے بغض رکھتے ہیں خصوصا حضرات  شیخین سے۔
جنت کی لذتیں اور جہنم کا عذاب انکے نزدیک معنوی ہے حسی نہیں۔
یہ لوگ تاویلات بہت کرتے ہیں حتی کہ یہ کہتے ہیں کہ قرآن کریم کی ہر آیت کا ایک باطنی معنی ہے اگرچہآیت صریح کیوں نہ ہو۔
قیامت کا انکار  کرتے ہیں اور تناسخ کا عقیدہ رکھتے ہیں۔
مذکورہ بالا عقائد جس فرقہ میں ہو اس کو مسلمان نہیں کہسکتے اسلۓ کہ یہ عقائد دائرہ اسلام سے خارجکرن

Deviated sects and the straight path of Islam (pg 76):

1.      The Aga Khan has officially Declared himself, before his followers, as the “Mazhar of Allah on earth”. The word “mazhar” means “copy” or “manifest”. Consequently, these Ismailis who call themselves Muslims do “sujood” before him. So even the primary axiomatic principle of Tawheed is being fundamentally and formally violated by them.

2.      The Aga-Khanis have hatred for the Sahabah (Radhiallahu’anhum), specifically Abu Bakr (Radhiallahu’anhu) and Umar (Radhiallahu’anhu).

3.      The Aga-Khanis believe the final prophet is Muhammad Ismail, instead of Nabi Muhammad (Sallā llāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam).

4.      The Ismailis (followers of the Aga Khan) all professedly believe that the Qur’an was time bound and was not meant to be a Universal message for all times. They believe that their spiritual leader, Karim Aga Khan, is the “walking – talking Qur’an” and his “religious pronouncements”, whatever they may be, are the “guidance” for the present times. The fundamental article of faith that there will not be any NEW revelations or “wahy” after the Qur’an, is being completely violated by the Ismailis.
