This objection is also raised against Imam Ahmad Raza Khan Barelvi (Allah’s mercy be upon him) that he made himself appear like a great lover of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) but at the same time said some disrespectful and shameless stanzas about the Ummul Mumineen Hazrat Aayisha Siddeeqah (May Allah be pleased with her).
This is a grave false accusation. Some other person’s mistake in the order (of stanzas) is unjustly related towards Imam Ahmad Raza Khan, while this (Hadaaiq e Bakhshish part 3) was published after his passing away. The one who did mistake in the order (of those stanzas) has repented from his mistake, the correct order was then printed later on, but those ignorant who are free from the fear of Allah they only have to produce disturbance and mischief.
Book of Naatia Poetry (Poems in the praise of Holy Prophet Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) written by Imam Ahmad Raza Barelvi i.e Hadaaiq e Bakhshish consists of two parts, these were compiled and published on year 1325 Hijri (1907 AD), Imam Ahmad Raza passed away on Safr 1340 Hijri (1921 AD). After two year of death Maulana Mahboob Ali Qadri Lakhnowi collected some of his (other) poems from different sources and published this compilation by the name of Hadaaiq e Bakhshish, for the publication he gave his compilation to Masooda Naabhah Steam Press, Naabha (State Patiala, India), the press then composed his compilation and published it.
The composer was a Bad-Mazhab (hypocrite), he intentionally or unintentionally interchanged some of those stanzas towards Hazrat Aayisha Siddeeqa (May Allah be please with her) which were actually written about Mushrikah (polytheists woman) like Umm e Zaraa’ etc. The detail about those women can be seen in the books of Ahadith like Muslim, Tirmidhi, Nasaai etc.
32 years after the publication of this book, on 1374 Hijri (1955 AD) full propaganda by Deobandis was launched that since Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan disrespected Hazrat Ummul Mumineen (may Allah be pleased with her) which was why he should be expelled from Sunni Jama’ Masjid in Mumbai.
Mufti e Azam e Hind Shah Mustafa Raza Khan Noori (May Allah be please with him) writes:
“As far as I know, probably Kazim Ali Deobandi mentioned this matter in his speech in Kaanpur and tried to up bring mischief, later (he spread this mischief) in different places and other Wahabis too repeated it (the mischief-making)”
(Book: Faisla Muqaddasa Shara’ia Qur’aania, Page no.81, Muhammad Azeez ur Rahmaan Bahaaupuri, Publication: Markazi Majlis e Raza, Lahore 1984)
In this concern, Roznama Inqilab Mumbai played a big role in spreading this Deobandi mischief and unrest amongst people.
Disclaimer of Repentance:
In Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi, Nisai and in other books of Ahadith, it is narrated by Hazrat Aayisha Siddeeqah (May Allah be pleased with her) that 11 polytheist women agreed together to disclose the qualities of their husbands and would not hide anything, amongst them one was Umm e Zaraa’, who praised her husband wholeheartedly and, she said while talking about her daughter that “she is obedient to her parents, wearing sufficient flesh.
(Muslim, Vol 2, Page 288, Publication: Noor Muhammad Karachi)
In the end of this narration, the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said Hazrat Aayisha (May Allah be pleased with her) “I am as merciful to you as Abu Zaraa’ was with Umme Zaraa’”.
The source from where Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan compiled that Qasida in the praise of Hazrat Aayisha Siddeeqa (May Allah be pleased with her), from the same source he compiled 7 stanzas which were about the 11 polytheist women. Over those particular 7 stanzas the word Alehda (separate) was written, but the composer intentionally or unintentionally mixed those 7 stanzas into the Qasida of Hazrat Aayisha Siddeeqa (May Allah be please with her) and published as tempered. When Maulana Mahboob Raza Khan Sahib got to know this, he was thinking to make the corrections in the next edition of publication and thought that the readers would also feel that these stanzas are mistakenly mixed with the Qasida. Khateeb e Mashriq Allama Mushtaq Ahmad Nizami (Allah mercy be upon him), the author of book Khoon Kay Aansu, published a passage in a weekly newspaper of Mumbai to get Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan’s attention over this mistake.
Maulana Mahboob Ali Khan Sahib didn’t have any such thoughts, so he published his repentance in monthly “Sunni” of Lakhnow on Zil Hajj1374 Hijri (1955 AD), following is the summary of the disclaimer of repentance by the words of Mufti e Azam e Delhi Maulana Mufti Mazharullah Dehlvi:
