THE BID’AH OF KHATME KHWAJGAN
Madrasah Arabia Islamia of Azaadville has published an article on the virtues of the Khatame Khwajgan practice which is observed with such constancy and fervour that the idea of this practice being Sunnah has been created. Is this a Sunnah practice?
Although Khatme Khwajgan is a practice consisting of thikr and dua, it has attained Bid’ah proportions. It is most certainly not Sunnah. The format of the practice is inimical to the Sunnah. The abhorrence of a form which has no Sunnah substantiation has been conspicuously portrayed by Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu anhu) when he had harshly expelled from the Musjid a group who had initiated a practice of thikr similar to Khatme Khwajgan.
Only morons and bigoted peer-worshippers will have the stupid audacity to claim that Hadhrat Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu anhu) was anti-Thikr, having “insufficient knowledge, foolishness and having evil thoughts”, as the U.K. Molvi Kholwadia states in the article extolling the virtues of the non-Sunnah Khatme Khwajgan practice.
If Allah Ta’ala wills, we shall publish a detailed refutation of the article of Madrasah Arabia Islamia. The proponents of this practice have presented an exaggerated picture of its virtues, and the importance accorded it has definitely ushered Khatme Khwajgan into the domain of Bid’ah.
Instead of khatame khwajgan, adhere to Khatme Qur’aan, Durood Shareef, Istighfaar, Nafl Salaat and Dua in solitude and individually. All these collective/congregational practices which have no origin in the Sunnah, invariably develop into hardcore Bid’ah Sayyiah (Evil Innovation). This has been the downfall of the Barelwi-Qabar Pujaari Bid’atis and of Bid’atis of other hues. They eventually become “Kilaabun Naar” (Dogs of the Fire).
About the people of Bid’ah, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Verily, Allah deprives every man of bid’ah from making Taubah.” This should be more than adequate for overwhelming the follower of the Sunnah with fear. Before indulging in a practice which has the form of ibaadat, ascertain whether it was Ibaadat during the age of the Sahaabah. If it was not, then stay far from it. What induces men to accord preference to practices which have no Sunnah origin. Shaitaan is our open enemy. Bid’ah is his snare with which he entraps even the Aabideen, hence Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“One Faqeeh is harder on shaitaan than a thousand Aabideen.”

Please comment on the following prize awards for performing Salaat.
The following was posted as a news item:
ISTANBUL – A group of Turkish children has been awarded gifts and
bicycles for praying Fajrin mosque congregation for 40 days in a row.
The children received the award at Sultan Selim Mosque in the Fatih
district of Istanbul, Ilm Feed reported on Wednesday, October 10.
Many mothers regularly accompanied their children to the Mosque in
order to encourage them. The mosque’s courtyard was filled with
bicycles and there was a celebratory atmosphere. The initiative was
suggested to encourage the children to become habitual in praying the
Fajr prayer in congregation, something which has great virtue and is
Muslims pray five times a day, with each prayer made of a series of
postures and movements, each set of which is called a rak‘ah. The five
prayer times are divided all through the day which starts with Fajr
prayer at dawn.
Now this has come to Karachi Pakistan. The owner of the school where
I teach wants to have the students in our school to participate. What
is the proper sharia status of this type of competition? Is it
If a Muslim’s heart and brains have not been convoluted by western
corruption, then he only needs to reflect, and his heart will answer.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Seek a fatwa from your
This is not an intricate issue which requires academic expertise for
a fatwa. It is simple to understand that this satanic competition is
haraam. The Ibaadat of Salaat is subjected to mockery and made a
Ibaadat is valid only if the niyyat is Allah’s Pleasure. No other
intention is valid. In fact, the organizers of this satanism are
guilty of shirk. The Ibaadat of Salaat is used with ulterior motive.
The intention is not Salaat for Allah Ta’ala. It is ‘salaat’ for the
It is not permissible to corrupt the intentions of the children.
Children have to be imparted the correct attitude from the very
inception. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ordered that
children should be instructed to p0erform Salaat from the age of 7. If
by the age of 10, they are not punctual and regular with the five
Salaat, they should be beaten to compel their submission. Rasulullah
(Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), did not advise that they should be
rewarded with dates, sweets, money, etc. The advice is to ‘beat’ them
by the age of 10 if they have not become musallis.
But these miserable slaves of the Yahood and Nasaara meticulously
follow the Yahood and Nasaara right into the “lizard’s hole”,
imitating like apes just every stupidity disgorged buy them. The
children are being made mercenaries. The Salaat they will be
performing will be to gratify their vain desires. Ibaadat us used as
a front to attain the jeefah (carrion) of the world.
These competitions are haraam. They are all part of the fitan with
which the world today is awash, and which are the prelude for
