I witnessed the strange phenomenon among the adherents of Islaam living in my own homeland and far

away from the homeland ………….My heart bleeds when I speak of the tragedy of wasting our energies in mutual recriminations and mutual tussles. What a pity that controversy and difference centers round our own center and axis! The Islamic faith cannot be comprehended without the holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu 'Alaeihi Wa Sallam), yet we are differing on interpreting and explaining and praising the great and glorious personality of the Prophet himself (Sallal Laahu 'Alaiehi Wa Sallam).

It is my leemaan (faith) that my Prophet (Sallal Laahu 'Alaiehi Wa Sallam) is like a mirror. He is a mercy unto the worlds, a light personified and a great intercessor (Sallal Laahu 'Alaiehi Wa Sallam). He conferred humanness upon men who used to be worse than beasts, and by his excellence of character changed hates into loves. The teachings and training of this holy and noble Prophet  raised those who walked in the dust behind the cattle to be the leaders of mankind. Yet, the fact is that I have not found a believer in any other faith saying so many contradictory things about the founder of his faith, things, which may be categorized as disrespectful, insolent and foulmouthed. Perhaps, people of any other Millat have not tolerated such an attitude as we ingrates have tolerated for our perfect guide and greatest benefactor 

(Sallal Laahu 'Alaiehi Wa Sallam).

It is most incomprehensible for me why those who make the blessed personality of their Prophet, with whom

Prophet hood has come to an end, the butt of criticism and of belittling. And are so firm in their thoughts and beliefs

and do not like the magnificent Prophet (Sallal Laahu 'Alaiehi Wa Sallam) of Al-Laah Subhaanahu and do not like to

honor and respect him, insist on being called the followers of such a Prophet.

In having faith in the Prophet of Al-Laah Subhaanahu and in following his deeds and sayings we are not to be guided by our self-made rules and principles but by the guidance provided by the Qur'aan and the Sunnat. Our relationship with the Prophet is not like that with a philosopher, a thinker, a teacher, or as between a ruler and the ruled, between a king and his subjects, between a conqueror and the conquered and between a master and his slave (under duress).

But as between a guide and a wayfarer, a Prophet and his follower, and, above all, between a beloved and a lover.

Intense love is the basis of our relationship with the holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu 'Alaiehi Wa Sallam). He is our master,

and our slavery has not been bought or purchased but is a voluntary one. This relationship is that of intense love,

although he is also our conqueror, our ruler, our king and our greatest teacher. A Mumins love teaches him love and respect, and when it is a question of love it is insolence even to look towards the beloved what to speak of lifting a finger at him. It is a matter of bowing down to him totally. A gentleman, the station of him who is the beloved of Al- Laah Subhaanahu Himself is something very different. How excellent, indeed, is that station!

"Ishq se Ho Jaa'e Mumkin He Wagarnah 'Aql se

Keya Muqaam-e-Mustafa He Faislah Dushwaar He.''

(It is possible to do so through love, otherwise with intellect It is difficult to determine the station of beloved Mustafa....Excerpt- Deoband to Bareily- by Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi

First Condition of Iemaan -Love for the Prophet Muhammad [ Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wassalam]

Faith and Love
(Ieemaan wa muhabbah)
A lecture delivered by Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Shafee Okarvi
(Rahmatul Laahi ‘Alaieh).

In 1979/80 at Cape Town, South Africa

Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad [ Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wassalam] have said
None of you can be a  ‘possessor of true faith’ (mumin) unless I become dearer to him than his parents, his offspring and in fact all human beings
In a similar Hadees that is not in the collection of Bukhari, but in other collections wherein the word wa nafsihi is included gives the added meaning that:
‘None of you can be a  ‘possessor of true faith’ (mumin) unless I become dearer to him than his parents, his offspring, all human beings and your own life.’
In the light of these Qur’aanic verses and Ahadees a poet Hafeez Jalanderi has presented these two verses of poetry:
Muhammad ki muhabbat din-e-haqq ki shart-e-awwal hai
Issi meh hoh agar kaami toh sub kuch na muqammal hai
The love for the Holy Prophet Muhammad[ Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wassalam] is the first condition in the religion of truth
If this love is tainted then everything else is worthless
The prayers (salaah), fasting and apparent virtuous deeds are all worthless if one does not possess perfect love for the Holy Prophet (Sallal-Laahu 'Alaiehi Wa Sallam) in ones heart.

Okarvi- Deoband to Bareily-"Aakhir Ikhtilaaf Kyun!"-Why the Differencess?


Al-Laah be praised! The very name of Okarvi has become a symbol of the truth and a naked sword for every falsehood throughout the Muslim World. May the Almighty Al-Laah preserve the determination and the steadfastness of this true lover of His beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam), and may He make him a great and benefiting asset for the Islamic Millat! Aameen. For the edification of the populous, Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi has given facts in his popular revolutionary Book: Deoband to Bareilly - The Truth Wins so that people might know the detail as to where and why do Sunnis differ with Deobandi-Wahaabi-ism, what are its causes and what is the solution to it. Through this, you will also come to know who are the people who have been redeemed. This book "Deoband to Bareilly (the Truth)" is the narrative of the journey of darkness to light, of imperfect intellect to true love. This very essence of faith, this love of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) is the distinctive feature of the true momins. The book by Allamah Okarvi was first published in South Africa in 1988. Since then, its three more editions have been published and distributed gratis. It has been translated into five important languages. For visual evidence of every book quoted above, A video and CD was prepared by Maulaanaa Okarvi Academy Al-Al-Aalami showing the actual books and their titles. “Why Differences are there" (English Version) or 
"Aakhir Ikhtilaaf Kyun!"
