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.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

وختم به النبيون اى لا يوجد بعده من يأمره الله سبحانه بالتشريع على الناس

Hakeem Tirmidhi Refuting the Idea of "Chronological" Finality of Prophethood

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

writes in his book Kitab Khatm ul Awliya regarding the correct interpretation of Khatam an Nabuwwah (Finality of Prophethood):

فإن الذي عَمِيَ عن خبرِ هذا يظنّ أن خاتم النبيين تأويله أنه آخرهم مبعثا. فأي منقبة في هذا؟ وأي علم في هذا؟ هذا تأويل البُلْهِ الجَهَلة

Translation: “What is the virtue in the idea that the meaning of Khaatam an Nabiyyeen (Seal of the Prophets) is that he is the last to be sent chronologically? This is the interpretation of the foolish and the ignorant!”

Sufi "Saint" Abdul Wahhab al-Sha'rani claims Prophethood has not been taken away completely

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Sufi “saint” Abdul Wahhab al-Sha'rani writes in his book Al Yawaqeet wal Jawahir:

اعلم أن النبوة لم ترتفع مطلقاً بعد محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم وإنما ارتفع نبوة التشريع فقط فقوله صلى الله عليه وسلم لا نبي بعدي ولا رسول بعدي أي ماثم من يشرع بعدي شريعةخاصة

Translation: “Know that Nabuwwah (Prophecy) has not been raised (taken away) completely after Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam). The Prophethood that has been taken away is Law-bearing Prophethood only. So his saying (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) 'There is no prophet after me and no messenger after me' that is, no one after me who will bring a Shari'ah.

Naqshbandi "Mujaddid Alf Thani" Ahmad Sirhindi: Attaining the Kamalat of Prophethood is not Contrary to Khatam an Nabuwwah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The leader of the Naqshbandi sect, so called “Mujaddid Alf Thani” Ahmad Sirhindi writes:

Following the advent of the Khatmur Rosul, Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (peace and blessings of Allah be on him), the attainment of prophethood by one of his followers, as a subordinate and in service of the Holy Prophet, will in no way offend or be in conflict with his status as Khaatamur-Rosul. No doubts need be entertained in this regard."

Deobandi Blasphemy: "The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم came in the form of Rashid Ahmad Gongohi"

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In detailing some of the alleged miracles and incidents of the Deobandi Ulama, Hafiz Mumin Khan Usmani writes in his book “Ulama-e-Deoband ke Waqiat o Karamat” that a certain Deobandi saw in his dream that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم came to him in the form and image of Rashid Ahmad Gongohi!

This is obviously a lie, and it is an attempt to degrade the high status and excellence of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم by claiming that he would ever come in the form of a second rate mullah like Rashid Gongohi. Satan cannot imitate the form and image of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم, but he (Satan) can definitely imitate the form of Rashid Gongohi!
