Ah! The shield and touchstone of deobandiyat has broken
Memoirs of Shaykhul Hadith of Darul Uloom Deoband and Sadrul Mudarriseen Mufti Saeed Ahmad Palanpuri
Shaykhul Hadith of Darul Uloom Deoband and Sadrul Mudarriseen and my beloved Ustaz Mufti Saeed Ahmad Palanpuri passed away last 25th of Ramadan 1441 Hijri, May 19, 2020, at 6:30 am according to indian’s time on Tuesday at a hospital in Mumbai after Suffering from illness. Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun.
He was an ideal figure in the Islamic world, eminent hadith scholar, incomparable commentator, universally recognized mufti, ethicist of hadith, tafsir and fiqh, unparalleled ustaz, ustazul asatiya, ustazul ulama, Hazrat Imamul Hind Wali Ullah Muhaddiv. Imamul Fuqaha wal Muhaddisin, Faqihun Nafs, Imam Rabani, Imamul Fuqaha al-Muhaddisin .) Is the true bearer of its knowledge and thought consciousness, the true watchdog of the principles and ideals of Deoband in the ulama of Akbar and the living reflection of Ahl-e-Sunnat wal Jamaat.
When the news of the demise of Hazrat Ustaz (RA) went viral all over the world through WhatsApp and Telegram, this tragic bad news immediately shocked and shocked not only Darul Uloom and the subcontinent but the entire Islamic world.
This heartbreaking news has made all the disciples, devotees and admirers of Hazrat Ustaz (Rah.) Who have spread all over the world who have benefited directly from Hazrat (Rah.) Directly or by any means, have completely weakened their hearts.
Even from this vile Afghanistan, Hazrat Ustaz had been in constant contact with him till a few days before his death. Ramzanul Mubarak was also heard from the very beginning of the post-Tarabeeh narration and commentary. And I was benefiting a lot from all this.
On the 12th of Ramadan, Hazrat Mufti Sahib (Rah.) Suddenly fell ill. The zeal was so strong that the prayers of Hazrat Ustaz were performed four times at a time and therefore Hazrat could not narrate on the thirteenth night. As a result, Hazrat’s statement was not published on WhatsApp that day.
The next day, on the thirteenth of Ramadan, at eleven o’clock in the morning, when I opened my eyes. Then I saw the Hadith of Hazrat Maulana Abdur Rauf Sahib (Dahab) who is a very dear disciple of Hazrat Mufti Sahib (Rah.) In Ustaz of Jamia Islamia Binnuri Town of Pakistan. Hazrat Mufti Sahib’s statement was not made last night. What is the reason? God forbid, did the Prophet fall ill again? ” I replied, “I will contact the brothers (ie Hazrat Sahibzada) and inform you in a short while, InshaAllah.” Then I called Hazrat Sahibzada number a few times, but it was not possible to talk to anyone. In the end, just before Maghrib, I could not bear it any more and called Hazrat directly. Alhamdulillah Hazrat picked up the phone. As soon as I heard the voice of the Prophet, my heart was filled with peace. I asked, “Hazrat! Didn’t you make a statement last night? I listen to your statement every night. ”Then Hazrat Mufti Sahib (RA) said,“ I fell ill yesterday, so I could not make a statement. Now there has been some improvement. InshaAllah I will narrate today. ” I requested Hazrat to stop his statement even today. Take a break today. Hazrat said, “No, brother!” I will narrate today. ”I was already aware of Hazrat’s mountainous courage, so I said,” OK, Hazrat. “
It works like that. Hazrat Tarabi narrated after the prayers despite his illness. After reciting the khutbah, he first explained the reason for not narrating last night and also mentioned the phone conversation of this idiot by his Javan Mubarak. It is a matter of great pride and good fortune for an insignificant person like me and a wonderful sign of the infinite affection of Hazrat (Rah.) Towards this wretch.
However, the next night, Hazrat Ustaz (Rah.) Also narrated. This was the last statement of the Prophet’s life. In the last statement, he discussed the important creed of Islam, “Khatme Nabuwat”. Again, since the beginning of Ramadan, this section of the statement was in the title of “Darse Qur’an”, so he continued from Surah Fatiha to the commentary of verse five of Surah Bakara, Dholaik Ham Al-Muflihun (meaning they are successful). Allahu Akbar !! Whoever has spent his whole life adhering to taqwa, in the last statement of his life, the proclamation of the Qur’an about the possessors of taqwa أولئك هم المفلحون (meaning they are the successful ones) seems to indicate that he too is leaving the world as one of the successful servants!
However, on the sixteenth night after that, his physical condition began to deteriorate. A message from Hazrat Sahebzada Mr. Hafiz Qasim Ahmad Sahib (Hafizahullah) went viral everywhere that “My Walid Muhtaram Hazrat Maulana Mufti Saeed Ahmad Palanpuri Damat Barakatuhum is very ill, today he is being kept under close medical supervision (ICU). I wish all the well-wishers a speedy recovery for the Prophet. ”
The message spread all over the world. And made all the disciples and devotees of the Prophet a kind of restless and anxious. All of them started weeping and weeping in the court of Allah. As a result, by the grace of God, within a day or two, the Prophet’s physical condition began to improve
