Deobandi Claim: Ashraf Thanvi's Grandfather Returned from the Dead!


According to the principles of Islam, the dead cannot return to the world once their souls have been taken away by Allah:

وَحَرٰمٌ عَلٰی قَرۡیَۃٍ اَہۡلَکۡنٰہَاۤ اَنَّہُمۡ لَا یَرۡجِعُوۡنَ ۞

And it is forbidden for a population which has been destroyed that they should ever return (Surah 21, Ayah 95)

Similarly, in a Hadith Qudsi, Allah says:
إِنَّهُ قَدْ سَبَقَ مِنِّي أَنَّهُمْ إِلَيْهَا لَا يُرْجَعُونَ
I have already decreed that the dead cannot return to the . world
However, Ashraf Thanvi narrates an event from his family history (allegedly) which clearly contradicts this established belief that the dead do not return to the world:
شہادت کے بعد ایک عجیب واقعہ ہوا۔شب کے وقت اپنے گھر مثل زندہ کے تشریف لاۓ اور اپنے گھر والوں کو مٹھائی لا کر دی اور فرمایا کہ اگر تم کسی سے ظاہر نہ کروگی تو اسی طرح روز آیا کریں گے لیکن ان کے گھر کے لوگوں کو یہ اندیشہ ہوا کہ گھر والے جب بچوں کو مٹھائی کھاتے دیکھیں گے تو معلوم نہیں کیا شبہ کریں اس لیے ظاہر کردیا اور پھر آپ تشریف نہیں لاۓ۔یہ واقعہ خاندان میں مشہور ہے۔

 

Translation: After his (Ashraf Thanvi's grandfather) martyrdom, a strange incident occurred. At night time he came home in a living form and brought sweets for his household. Then he said: “If you do not reveal this to anyone then I will come like this everyday.” However, the family became concerned that people will become suspicious when they see the children eating sweets, so they revealed what happened. After that, he never returned. This incident is famous within the family.

There is No Prophet After Me. Meaning of بعد

Our interpretation of La Nabi Ba'di to mean no prophet that is in opposition to the Shari'ah of the Prophet and is not his follower ...
