Barelwi Belief: Hindu Idols Ram, Krishna, and Buddha were Prophets!


According to the Barelwi 'peer' and saint, Khwaja Ghulam Farid of Chachran, the Hindu 'deities' Ram and Krishna, as well as the Buddha, were Prophets sent by Allah! In fact, Ghulam Farid claims that all of the Hindu Avatars and Rishis were Prophets:



اس کے بعد کسی نے عرض کیا کہ سری کرشن جی اور رام چندر صاحب فقیر اور درویش تھے یا نہیں۔ آپ نے فرمایا کہ تمام اوتار اور رشی لوگ اپنے اپنے وقت کے پیغمبر اور نبی تھے اور ان میں سے ہر ایک کے پاس کتاب ہے چنانچے چار وید زبان سنسکرت میں اب بھی موجود ہیں اور ان میں سے ہر نبی لوگوں کی رسومات بد توڑ نے کے لیےمبعوث ہوا۔ لیکن جب ہندو لوگوں میں برہمنوں کی قدر و منزلت حد سے زیادہ ہونے لگی۔ برہمنوں نے یہ مشہور کردیا کہ خلق کی حق تک رسائی ان کی وساطت کے بغیر نا ممکن ہے۔ ان فاسد عقائد کو مٹانے کے لیے مہاتما بدھ مبعوث ہوئے۔انہوں نے حکم دے دیا کہ جو شخص برہمن کو قتل کرے گا نجات پائے گا۔ جب گاؤ پرستی کی رسم زور پکڑ گئ تو سری کرشن جی مبعوث ہوئے۔



Translation: “Someone asked whether or not Sri Krishna and Ram Chandar were faqirs and dervishes. Khwaja Ghulam Farid said: All of the Avatars and Rishis were Messengers and Prophets of their trime. Everyone of them was given a divine scripture. The four Vedas, which are in the Sanskrit language, are in existence even now. Everyone of those Prophets were sent to repudiate the evil customs which were practiced by the people. But when the influence of the Brahmins became excessive among the Hindus, they spread the idea that it was impossible to attain salvation without their intermediation. Mahatma Buddha was sent [by God] to remove such false doctrines. He even declared that whoever killed a Brahmin would be granted salvation. And when cow worship became prominent, Sri Krishna was sent [by God].”

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 ...
