Ganghoi never took a breathe except after consulting the prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) for 12 years
Gangohi not doing anything without asking the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) !
it is written: “Once Hazrat Maulana Ganghoi (rah) was very enthusiastic and there was a discussion on the topic of Tasawwur e Shaykh (imagining the face of his Shaykh always when doing Zikr and others) and he asked: “Shall I mention it?” and they said yes, and he said again: “Shall I mention it?” and they said yes, and he said again: “Shall I mention it?” and they said yes. Then he said: “For three complete years, the face of Hazrat Imdad was remaining in my heart, and I did not do anything without asking him. “ Then he became enthusiastic again and said: “Shall I mention it?” and they said: yes surely mention it…: “For 12 years Hazrat (the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam)) remained in my heart and I did not do anything without asking him.” And after saying this he became more enthusiastic and said: “Shall I mention it?” and they said yes, but he remained silent, and people insisted and he said: “leave it” and tomorrow they insisted again and he said: “Brother, I remained then in the state of Ihsan”.
[Ref: story no. 307 of “Arwah Thalathah”,]
Only if the sahaaba knew the secret recipee of ganghoi , they would have too been able to consult the prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) in matters of war-fare and especially the khilafah.
The Prophet s.a.w taught us to say “Bismillah” before Wudhoo, there is no Dua during the Wudhoo, thereafter when one has completed doing Wudhoo he must say:
أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلَـهَ إِلاّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَريـكَ لَـهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمّـداً عَبْـدُهُ وَرَسـولُـه
سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك
اللّهُـمَّ اجْعَلنـي مِنَ التَّـوّابينَ وَاجْعَـلْني مِنَ المتَطَهّـرين
There is no such thing as Reciting Surah Al Qadr or reciting bismillah and Kalima upon washing each and every part during wudhoo. Molana Ashraf Ali thanvi says in the same bahishti zevar part 1, Aqeedo ka bayaan, Masla no.22 that:
“Allah and his messenger sal Allahu alyhi wasallam HAVE SHOWN ALL MATTERS PERTAINING TO DEEN IN QURAN AND HADITH. To bring something new into the deen is not permitted. Such new things are known as Bid’aat (Innovations). An Innovation is a major sin.”
We dont find any proof of this act from Quran or hadeeth and hence this act is an innovation. The Prophet s.a.w said: “…every innovation is misguidance and all misguidance is in the Hellfire.” Sunan an-Nasaa’ee (1/224).
If deobandi brothers try to justify this then they have no right to condem Barelwis for their innovations nor do deobandis have the right to do long talks against innovations. Allaah knows best. May Allah guide us all and may Allah protect us from every kinds of innovations (Bid’aat) in Islam. May Allaah keep us united on the path of Quran and Sunnah and may Allah open up our pathways as we strive in his cause to spread Islam. Ameen. If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa’ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.Ameen.
