Jashne Muhaddith-e-Deccan held in Masjid Abul Hasanaat

On February 23, 2012, Sunday, after Salaat Ul Maghrib, 9th Jashne Muhaddith-e-Deccan was held in Masjid Abul Hasanaat, Phool Bagh, Jahanuma.

Hadhrat Maulana Khaja Shareef, Shaykh Ul Hadith, Jamia Nizamia, and founder, Al Mahad Ad Deeni Al Arabi said in his lecture that by compiling those Hadith which support the Hanafi School of Jurisprudence, Hadhrat Muhaddith-e-Deccan (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) has demonstrated to the world that the Hanafi School of Islamic Jurisprudence is exactly as per Hadith. With this, he paid the debt that had remained outstanding on the followers of the Hanafi School for over 1000 years. In these 1000 years, this task of compilation of Hadith which support the Hanafi School of Jurisprudence, was done sporadically, but Hadhrat Muhaddith-e-Deccan (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) took this task to its culmination.

He said that Imam Tahawi (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) has compiled those Hadith which support the Hanafi School in his book Sharh Ma’ani Ul Aathaar, but these were only those Hadith which had reached Imam Tahawi (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) through his own chain of narration. However, Hadhrat Muhaddith-e-Deccan (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) took the Hadith of all Hadith-experts. Thus, in Zujaajatul Masabeeh Hadith from Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim and Hadith from other (famous) compilations of Hadith are also found.

Hafidh Abdur Rahman Khan, the English translator of Kitaab Ul Muhabbat, spoke in English. He said that Hadhrat Muhaddith-e-Deccan (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) is one of those great personalities whom Allah Most High has selected. Each act of his and each book of his is a means of gaining proximity to Allah Most High. They are beacon of guidance for the people. One of his important works is Kitaab Ul Muhabbat. This book teaches us that the way people are busy in materialistic tasks and wasting their time, they should refrain from it and develop love for Allah Most High and engage in remembrance of Allah Most High.

He quoted the words of Hadhrat ‘Ali (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the person who places his trust in people is disappointed, the one who places his trust in his wealth, his wealth is reduced, the one who trusts his knowledge is misguided, the one who relies on his own deductions stumbles, the one who trusts his own intellect, his intellect is disturbed and the person who places his trust in Allah Most High, that person is neither disappointed nor suffers any diminishment, is neither misguided nor stumbles.
