For undersatanding any difference it is important to know similarity also so BEFORE GOING TO DIFFERENCE LET US KNOW ABOUT SIMILARITY
2.Initially the difference was purely personal and historical .
For understanding it can be divided into three subclassess.
eg. Celebration of URS at Aulia Allah graves
Barelvi Alaim allow the Urs with following condition
1.If it is free from unislamic practices. like money making,
2.No Women should be allowed.As for women visiting Drgah is Haram even if they come in Pardah.
Islam doesnot allow women to come at Mazar.
3.There should not be any TAWAF of Qabar
4.There should not be any Sjada of Qabar.
But Deobandi point is that Urs was not clebrated by Sahaba karam and by Aulia Allah for their elders so they will not celebrate)
Deobandi are agreed on karamate aulia and give very high regard to Aulia Allah and sufia karam
Rather Deobandi Alim Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi has written Biography of Sheikhul Mashaekh Abdul Qadir Jeelani Rahmatullah Alaihi ,Khwaja Ahmad sarhindi(Mujaddid Al Fasani Rahmatullah and NIZAMUDDIN Aulia R.A. and
Another Deobandi Alim shaikhul hadees Maulana Zakaria sb has written Tarikh e Mashaikhe Chisht of the series of sheikh Moiniddin chishti R.A of Ajmer........................Deobandis are 100% sufi.But they dont endorse any Bidat Practices on the name of Sufism.
2.Commemorating 30 ,40 days (Teeja Chaleesa) of dead etc...................
Barelvi do it
Deobandi do not do it.They say that Nabi e Pak Shaba and Aulia Allah has not done it .So we will not do
3. Mawlood/Meelad Shareef
Deobandi Alims are divided into celebration of Mawlood. Some of them permits if no islmic ruling is violated rather they do it in the form of JALSA SEERATUNNABI. But they do it throughout the year and not only in Rabiul Awwal or 12th rabiul awwal
Some Deobandi are telling that sahaba did not do it and it was started after 300 years of islam so it is not correct
but Deobandis are not very harsh in general on mawlood. They consider it as superficial matter.
2. The so called difference about Aqeeda Matter
Actually in Aqeedah Even in detail of Aqeeda they follow same book like Aqeedatuttahawi, Sharah Aqaid by Taftajani (R.A).
But It is alleged that Barelvis has following Aqeeda About Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.that.
- He is that means made of light "NOOR"
- He is (present in many places at the same time). hazir
- He is (witnessing all that goes on in the world). nazir
- He has b (knowledge of the unseen/unknown completely and nothing is hidden).ilm-e-ghai
- He is (having the authority to do whatever he desired) mukhtaar kul
They have made explanation of these term that their apparant meaning should not be taken.........
eg NOOR does not mean he was made up of NOOR but he was Noor in the sense of spread of light after his arrival ..........But their are some present day ulema who has taken extreme view on these matter and have complicated the problem but the mainstream BARELVI ULEMA view is modest and their view is not much different)
This type of controversy erupted and was nurtured to gain the public sentiments and to capitalize their support in the favour of their group and to DEFAME THE ULEMA OF OTHER GROUP.
Maulana Ashraf Alai Thanwi Sb,
Maulana Qasim Nanoutwi sb etc...........
Wheras DEOBANDI accuse fault int he writing of
Maulana Ahmad Raza Khan Sb and some others.
(A) All these ALLEGATION are interpretative and extrapolation of actual sentences and the writer has denied the wrong meaning.
(B) If you read complete page/2 - 3 paragraph of writing with context of the article /book you will find no wrong thing in either case.
(c) But the fighting groups present isolated sentences out of context and cover their interpretational meaning.
(d) These are maily slip of pen/unsuitable example and not matter of Aqeedah/believes.But they present as Aqeedah matter
CULMINATION OF THIS SORT OF CONTROVERSY
CONSEQUENCES OF FATWA OF KUFR
4. This led to the widening of GAP /MISTRUST AND IRREPARABLE DAMAGE TO THE UMMATE MUSLIMA. (May allah pardon all of us)
7. They have come up with book "BARAILWIAT HAQEEQAT KE AINE MEIN" and AHMAD RAZA HAYAT AUR KARNAME with 45 scanned pages OF WRITING OF BARELVI ULEMA they have made so many allegation against supreme ulema of Barelvi. This is similar kind of allegation that barelvi did in the past for deobandi Alim.
ROLE OF INTERNET FORUMS IN FIGHTING
8. Already there was minimal relation between two groups.and with the advent of internet forums and Polemics writing of books/website situation is further deteriorating.
