SAYED NINOWY has uttered statements that CONTRADICT the ahadith regarding ESAALE THAWAAB of KHATMAL QURAN

Please be ADVISED that SAYED NINOWY has uttered statements that CONTRADICT the ahadith regarding ESAALE THAWAAB of KHATMAL QURAN  during a Q&A session on Tuesday 18th August 2015 in Pretoria as follows:
Transcription of the words uttered by Sayed Ninowy on Tuesday evening 18th August 2015 in Pretoria , SOUTH AFRICA:
Questioner:   Shaykh, this is the question from the sisters.  She says, respected Shaykh!
When there is a Mayyit, most homes have a Khatmul ur’an.  Some say, it is of no benefit to the deceased, please can you give me your view on this?
And the second question is, there is also a conflict regarding the celebration of Meeladun Nabi.  These are two questions.
Response: Let’s not ask all the questions.  There is a book that is printed on Meeladun Nabi, please read it and it’s available . . . . and it has already been discussed there and I don’t wanna discuss something which has already been discussed, and extensively discussed.
As far as the Khatmul Qur’an for the Mayyit, there is no benefit for the deceased.
There is benefit for the reader; yes or no? so if you read the Qur’an will you benefit or not?  So if there is no benefit for the deceased at least you benefit by reading the Qur’an, so there is benefit.
The point is . . . . Can I give you a text that says there is a benefit for the deceased?
No, I can’t.  There is no such thing. A conclusive evidence, can I give an evidence that there is no benefit for the deceased?  I can’t.  So since, there is lack of evidence for and against reading the Qur’an , at least to say there is a benefit for the reader, so instead of just sitting around please read the Qur’an, if that’s goes to deceased, great, and if it doesn’t, you benefit, also great.  In sha Allah, we hope and pray that they benefit from the Qur’an.  If the Du’a that is something beneficial for the deceased then the Qur’an is the best form of Du’a, so take it from that aspect.  And Allah knows best!

Refutation of His Corrupt Statement


“Sending Blessings to the Deceased”

According to the Shariah, Esaal-e-Sawaab (sending reward and blessings to the Muslim Deceased) is a desirable and blessed action. The permissibility of sending blessings and reward to the deceased is proven from the Hadith and from the Fuqaha (learned Jurists). The Fateha of Gyarwee Shareef (Niyaz of Ghaus-e-Azam Jilani radi Allahu anhu) is also an aspect of the Esaal-e-Sawaab. Thus, it is also permissible. Since to send blessings and reward to all the deceased is proven to be permissible from the Hadith and from the Fuqaha, it is also permissible to send this reward to individuals. There is no evidence contrary to this in the Quran, Hadith, and Ijma or from Qiyaas (The four sources of attaining Islamic ruling). Thus, to say Esaal-e- Sawaab for the deceased or Gyarwee Shareef Fateha etc. to be impermissible is baseless and without evidence from the Shariah. A few Hadith relating to Esaal-eSawaab and its permissibility are being presented for your perusal:


Hadith No.1: It is in Abu Dawood and Nasa’i from Sa’ad ibn Ubaadah (radi Allahu anhu) that he asked the Prophet (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam), “Ya Rasoolallah (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam), Sa’ad’s mother has passed away. Which sadqa is best to do for her?’ The Prophet (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam) said, ‘Make sadqa of water (since there was shortage of water then).’ He had a well dug and said; ‘This well is for the mother of Sa’ad’ in other words, the sawaab is for Sa’ad’s mother.”


Hadith No.2: It is in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Ummul Mo’mineen Sayyida Aisha Siddiqa (radi Allahu anha), “A person came to the Prophet (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam) and said that his mother passed away suddenly and he felt that if she had anything to say before her death, she would have requested sadqa. He asked that if she would receive any sawaab if he made sadqa on her behalf. The Prophet (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam) answered by saying, ‘Yes’ (she would receive the reward).” Whilst commentating on this Hadith in Ash’atul Lamaat, Hazrat Sheikh Abdul Haq Muhadith-e-Dehlwi alaihir rahma states, “This Hadith is proof of the fact that the deceased receives sawaab from Sadqa and the same refers to Dua. This (sending sawaab to the deceased) has been the manner of the Ahle Haq (Righteous Scholars). There has been a difference of opinion according to some relating to sending sawaab of physical Ibaadat such as Namaaz and recitation of the Quran. The Proper Mazhab is that these actions give reward to the deceased and this is based on the reasoning that Dua (gives reward to deceased).”


Hadith No.3: Abu Dawood reports on the authority of Amr bin Sha’ab who himself narrates a Hadith from his father and Grandfather as follows, “A’as ibn Waa’il made a wasiyat (declaration) that one hundred slaves should be freed on his name (after his death). In complying with his request, his son Hishaam freed fifty slaves on his name. His other son Amr intended to free another fifty slaves but decided to first take the permission of the Holy Prophet (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam). He presented himself in the Court of the Holy Prophet (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam) and said, ‘Ya Rasoolallah (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam), my father made wasiyat that we should free one hundred slaves on his name (after his death) and Hishaam has already freed fifty slaves. Now fifty slaves are left to be freed. May I free those fifty slaves?’ The Prophet (Sall Allaho alaihi wasallam) said, ‘If he was a Muslim and you freed the slaves on his name, or if you gave sadqa or made Hajj on his name, he would have received this (reward).”

Sheikh Muhaqqiq has stated as follows concerning this Hadith in Lam’aat: “From this, it is evident that no amount of sadqa can give a Kaafir any benefit or freedom (from torment of the hereafter). The Muslim (deceased) attains benefit from Ibaadat through wealth and bodily Ibaadat.”

  1. all ghumaries Hafiz ghumari Ahmad, Abdullah and AbdulAziz wrote many statements in thier articles and books quoting authentic hadith such as the prophet himself instructing muslims to read yaseen chapter of koran on our dead muslims. Again an ingronat person limited in knowledge of most subjects he addresses. I blame those who ask him and follow him and invite him and pay him …. etc
