Haq and Batil

From the Malfuzat of Hakimul Ummah Thanwi (rahimahullah)

“I shall show you a brilliant method by which Haq and Batil may be recognized in ambiguous and doubtful cases. Even if there happens to be no shaikh or scholar around, you will still be able to distinguish between Haq and Batil on the basis of this standard.

Regarding new and innovated things, find out who are the originators. Are the originators laymen or pious Ulama ?If the originators are pious Ulama, then such things, e.g. Madrasahs, Khanqahs, Darul Iftas, etc. are part and parcel of the Deen. The introduction of such things was inspired into the hearts of the pious Ulama.

Practices such as urs, fatiha, third-day, seventh-day, and fortieth-day khatm, etc. which were introduced by the laymen (ordinary people, non-Ulama) are not part of the Deen.

By utilizing this standard, all innovations and new practices may be distinguished and recognized to be either Haq or Batil.”

-By:  Maulana Tameem Ahmad Sahib, Khalifah Mujaz-e-Bay’at of Hazrat Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahib (DB)
