Dr. Zakir Naik’s Iman-Destroying Tafsir Of Surah Baqara’s Verse No. 154 & His Rebellion Against Quran & Sahih Hadeeth

Author : Maulana Muhammad A K azad [ Abu Arif Al Alawi]

                    Mr. Zaakir Naik,  the spokesman of  the Kharizi Bidatis,  preaches  unbelievable  tafsir of Surah Baqara's Verse No 154 and virtually dares to make a rebellion against Quran & Hadeeth . If one believes in this tafsir , his iman will definitely be at stake.   Zakir Naik was asked about Quran's command of not calling the Shahids dead. Zakir naik's response is :

                "...the brother has asked two questions that there is a verse in
the quraan speaking ..the verse in the quraan...from surah baqarah
chapter no.2....that......dont think those people who have died in
jihad as dead...they are living.....its mainly in context if you
know....that the enemies they said we killed so many of the its saying that ...even though physically they are dead
.....but in the hereafter they will live....that means they will get a
reward in the hereafter.."

                Respected Brothers and sisters !  Such strange, foolish and ridiculous tafsir of 2:154 (Quran) is not just slip of mouth from Brother Zakir. It is a  part of Kharizi  malicious Propaganda against Ahle Sunnat wa Zamat aiming at corrupting the  Aqida of Muslims. It's a war not only against Ahle Sunnat Wa Zamaat but against Islaam. Allah Subhanahu Taala declares the Shahids as alive and commands Muslims not to call them "dead'. But agents of British-sponsored modern  Kharizi Movement are propagating its exact opposite. Yet they are lauded as "Allamatul Muslimin", "Massiah of Islaam" etc. Dr Zakir  demands evidence from Quran and sahih Hadeeth in every issue from The Muslims belonging to Ahle Sunnat wa Zamaat but what he himself says in the tafsir
Surah Baqara's Verse No 154 is neither in Al Quran nor in any Hadeeth. It is not in any tafsir book either. It is his own self-made aqidah which is which is absolutely against the aqidah of Islam.

           Dear Readers! Please read attentively  what Quran Commands, Compare it with the Kharizi statement and catch them red-handed. Allah commands:

     1.   " "
وَلاَ تَقُولُواْ لِمَنْ يُقْتَلُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَلَكِن لاَّ تَشْعُرُونَ

      Meaning : "  And do not utter regarding those who are slain in Allah's cause as "dead"; in fact they are alive, but it is you who are unaware." ( Surah Baqara. Verse No. 154)


Zakir Naik says:   ".....but in the hereafter they will live....that means they will get a
reward in the hereafter" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. Allah Subhanahu Taala commands in another place: . "
وَلاَ تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ قُتِلُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ أَمْوَاتًا بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ"

Meaning:"  Think not of those who are slain in Allah's s way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord; They rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah." (Qur'an, Al Imran ,Verse,169)


Zakir Naik says: ".....but in the hereafter they will live....that means they will get a
reward in the hereafter" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Dear Readers!  Aqida of this  "Allamatul Muslimin !" about Shahids is totally opposite of what quran commands. What is worse is that in order to mislead the Youths, he makes his own strange tafsir with the help of his peerless artistic word-game. The entire Muslim ummah is unanimous that Shahids are alive and it is beyond our intellect and understanding. Now Let us go through the following evidences with utmost attention:

        Evidence No 01 : Allah Almighty says “And say not those who are killed in the path of Allah as dead; but they are alive yes, you are unaware.” [surah Baqra,verse 154]

    Evidence No 02 : Allah Almighty says “Think not of those who are slain in Allah’s Way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the Presence of their Lord;They rejoice in the status accorded to them by Allah:”[Surah Al Imraan, Verse 169 and 170]

      Evidence No 03 : In the tafsir of Surah Quaf, verse no 4 , “We know all what the earth decreases from them;” it is mentioned in Tafsir Rooh ul Bayan that “Apart from the bodies of Prophets(Ambiya) and Martyers (Shohada) , even the bodies of Pious (Sidiqeen) remain fresh in their graves” [Tafsir Rooh ul Bayan, vol 9, pg 104]

      Evidence No 04 :  Allama Ismail Haqqi in his Tafsir Rooh ul Bayan says ” The bodies of Ambiya, Awliya ,Shohoda remains fresh ( salamat). [Tafsir Rooh ul Bayan, vol 3, pg 439]

   Evidence No 05 :    Narrated by Hazrat Urwa ,when the wall of the room of Hazrat Ayesha (radiallahu’ anha), fell on them(i.e. graves) during the caliphate of Al-Walid bin `Abdul Malik, the people started reparing it, and a foot appeared to them. The people got scared and thought that it was the foot of the Prophet. No-one could be found who could tell them about it till I (`Urwa) said to them, “By Allah, this is not the foot of the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) but it is the Foot of Hazrat Umar ( radiallahu’an) . [Sahih Bukhari, vol 4 ,Hadith no813,, Kitaab ul Janaaiz, pg no 149]

     Evidence No 06 :   ”The Prophets are alive in their graves, praying to their Lord”[A sound (sahih) hadith related on the authority of Hazrath Anas bin Maalik (may Allah be well pleased with him) by al-Bazzar in his musnad, Abu Yala in his musnad, al-Bayhaqi in Hayaat al-anbiya fi quburihim and also by many others]

      Evidence No 07 :   Imam Muslim writes when Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) went to Mir’aaj, he saw Prophet Musa (salallahualayhiwas allam) was standing in his grave performing Salaah. (Muslim, Chapter on Fadaile Mousa)

    Evidence No 08 :    Salafis' Prominent Imam Qadi Shawkani writes:
“Some of the highest scholars say that our Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) is alive in his grave” So then it would make it the same as travelling to see our Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] when he was alive. [Nayl-lul-Avtar chap Al-Hajj by Qadi Shawkani]

    Evidence No 09 :   Ahle Hadeeth- Salafis' Most respected Tafsir-Specialist  Hafidh Ibne Kathir (R.A.) too  writes in tafsir of 2-154 that Shahids are alive in their graves. [Tafsir Ibne Kathir. 2:154]

     Evidence No 10 :    Deobandi Scholar Mufti Md Shafi Usmani writes:     "One who  dies in the cause of Allah is a Shahid (Martyr) and,
 although, it is correct and even allowed to call him "dead", yet we are
 forbidden to regard their death like ordinary deaths. For, though, life
in Barzakh is given to everybody which gives him perception of reward and punishment but Shahid in the Barzakh life is qualitatively different from the one given to other persons. The distinction a Shahid has over others in Barzakh is that in effect, for the fullness and sensitivity of life, his perception is, keener and deeper. As, for instance, the life sensation is there in finger tips, as also, it is there in heels, but the sensitivity of finger tips is sharper than that of heels. The effect of the finer life-quality of a Shahid in Barzakh reaches his physical body as well; whereas ordinarily bodies remain unaffected. Consequently, a Shahid's body does not waste away, decay or mingle with dust. On the contrary it retains it freshness and a semblance of being alive too. This is duly endorsed by AhZdah and observations. They are, therefore, reported as living and we are forbidden to call them dead. However, for all worldly purposes they are treated at par with the dead; their properties are divided and their wives can remarry. Lives of prophets in Barzakh have a further distinction. Their life-sensitivity is even finer and keener than that of shahids in Barzakh their bodies retain their life-quality and, in some
 ways, its manifestation is extended to this life as well; their properties are not divided and their wives cannot again enter into wedlock.The most strong in the retention of this life-quality are the prophets, then are the  shahids t,h en the ordinary human beings. Nevertheless, according to some ahiidith some of the men of Allah and virtuous people share this excellence with ~ h a h i d sA. pparently, those who die while exercising stringent discipline against their selves
are ranked with shahids . In other words, though this verse specifically refers
 to shahids as against the broad humanity, it does not, for that reason, exclude the virtuous and the truthful. If, therefore, the body of a shahid returns to dust, as bodies of ordinary persons, generally do, the chances are that the person did not, perhaps, die in the cause of Allah which is the only criterion of martyrdom (Shahadah).  ( Mareful Quran, Tafsir of 2:154)

         Evidence No 11 :       Muft Taqi Usmani, Most Prominent Contemporary Tableeghi- Deobandi Scholar of this time writes: "According to Islamic Jurisprudence, "Shaheed" is of two kinds: 1. Shaheed in the real sense. 2. Shaheed in the constructive sense. Shaheed in the real sense is a Muslim who has been killed during "Jihad" or has been killed by any person unjustly. Such a person has two characteristics different from common people who die on their bed. Firstly, he should be buried without giving him a ritual bath. However, the prayer of the Janazah shall be offered on him and he shall also be given a proper kafin (burial shroud). Secondly, he will deserve a great reward in the Hereafter and it is hoped that Allah Almighty shall forgive his sins and admit him to Jannah. It is also stated in some of the traditions that the body of such a person remains in the grave protected from contamination or dissolution.
As compared to this kind of "Shaheed" a Shaheed in a constructive sense is a person who has been promised by the Holy Prophet Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam to get a reward of a Shaheed in the Hereafter but is not taken as Shaheed with regard to the rules of burial. It means that the dead body has to be bathed like a dead body of any other person. The Holy Prophet Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam has included in this category of Shaheed a large number of persons such as a person who has died in a Plague or who has died in an unexpected accident, like a fire or a traffic accident or who has been drowned in the water or a woman who has died during the delivery of her child etc.

               Allama Jalaluddin Suyuti, a well-known scholar of Islamic disciplines, has collected all the Hadiths relating to this kind of Shaheed and has come to the conclusion that there are thirty categories mentioned by the Holy Prophet Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam who can deserve to be called Shaheed in this sense. But in the normal course, the word "Shaheed" is applied only for the first kind. However, it is not prohibited to use the word for a person who falls in any of the categories mentioned in the second kind". ["The Meaning of Shaheed", By Mufti Taqi Usmani.]

                    Dear Readers!  Let us pray to Almighty Allah :"Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You lest I misguide others, or I am misguided by others, lest I cause others to err or I am caused to err, lest I abuse others or be abused, and lest I behave foolishly or meet with the foolishness of others".

[Abu-Dawud, Ibn Majah, Nasa'i, At-Termithi  Sahih At-Tirmithi 3/152 and Sahih Ibn Majah 2/336 ]
