Regarding Ruju of Maulana Muhammad Saad Kandhlawi
are repeated requests from within India and outside that Darul Uloom Deoband
should express its view regarding the Ruju (revocation) of Maulana Muhammad
Saad from his comments about the Prophet Musa (peace be upon him).
is hereby clarified that as far the Ruju of Maulana Muhammad Saad from
this particular issue is concerned it is somehow satisfactory, but the
ideological divergence of Maulana Muhammad Saad to which Darul Uloom Deoband
has pointed out in its Stand cannot be ignored at all; this is because even
after so-called Ruju he continues to make several other statements
wherein he adopts the same innovative style, baseless conclusions and unwarranted
application of Islamic resources (nusus) to his peculiar ideology of
Dawah. This is the reason that not only we (the servants of Darul Uloom
Deoband) rather the other Ulama-e-Haq are very much worried due to the
overall ideological approach of Maulana Muhammad Saad.
is our assertion that the least diversion from the path of Akabir (pious
predecessors) is immensely harmful. Therefore, following the footstep of the
predecessors, Maulana Muhammad Saad should be cautious enough in his statements
and should stop the personal deductions (ijtihadat) from the Quran and
Hadith; since his innovative deductions and interpretations denote as if he is
bent to formulate a new group which will be different from the way of Ahl
al-Sunnah wa al-Jama’at and Akabir. May Allah keep us firm and steadfast on the
track of our pious predecessors, Amen!
who turn to us in this regard are once again reminded that Darul Uloom Deoband
has distanced itself from the internal dispute of Tablighi Jamat and it has
declared its impartiality clearly from the beginning. However, whenever people
approach Darul Uloom for its views about wrong ideologies and thoughts, Darul
Uloom always strives to guide the Ummah considering it its religious duty.
