    IJTEHAADI ERRORS OF GRE T ISL MIC SCHOL RS By Dr. Abu Marya Sayeeduddin    2 | Page  jhad-phoonk means :- to recite words of Quran or of other sources and blow by mouth in order to get rid of diseases and problems. In the name of ALLAH the most beneficent, the most merciful. May the mercy of Almighty Allah be on the Salafs, who not only implemented The Glorious Quran and the authentic Hadeeths in their lives but also spread the message of Islam and truth to all corners of the world through their teachings. Insha’All ah they will be blessed with the highest degree of rewards and jannatul firdaus in the hereafter. Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.), the last prophet sent by Almighty Allah, was innocent from error. Apart from him, everyone can commit mistakes and everyone does commit mistakes. The great Salafs have also committed some ijtehadi errors but those errors and mistakes in no ways lessen their enormous contribution to the cause of Islam or the high esteem in which they are held by we Muslims. Allama Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Baaz (R.H.): The whole Muslim community is forever indebted to him because of the work he did for a number of years to spread the light of Islam and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) said that honey cures diseases, so we have to believe with absolute certainty that eating honey will cure diseases, but if we say that honey will be effective in curing only if some Quranic ayat are read on it and then eaten, then we would be transgressing from the sayings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). Similarly Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) had said that kalaunji helps in curing diseases, but if we of our own add that it will help in curing only if we recite some Quranic ayat on it then we would be adding to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) and it is therefore a biddah. Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) said that the dead should be washed with water containing leaves of ber tree, so we should follow instead of adding anything else to the teaching and doing biddah which will lead to hell.  3 | Page  jhad-phoonk means :- to recite words of Quran or of other sources and blow by mouth in order to get rid of diseases and problems. Allama Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Baaz (R.H.) once gave a fatwa that a person under a spell of magic can be treated by drinking and bathing him in a water which has ber tree leaves (crushed with stone)in it and on it Ayat-ul-Kursi, Surah Kafirun, Surah Ikhlas, Surah Falaq, Surah Naas and those ayats in which magic or spell is mentioned like Ayat 117-122 of Surah Araaf, Ayat 79-82 of Surah Younus, Ayat 65- 69 of Surah Taha have been recited. The person might get cured of the spell (Reference: Fatawaul Sheikh Ibn Baaz No.8016 dated 22 Muharramul Haram 1405 Hijri) This fatwa of Allama Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Baaz (R.H.) cannot be proved from actions of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). So we should reject this fatwa as following this fatwa would mean going beyond the teachings of Allah and Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). Almighty Allah has said in the Surah Al- Hujurat’s first ayat that we should not go beyond the teachings of Allah and Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). Accidently if someone gets cured following this fatwa then that case won’t stand as the proof for this fatwa’s authenticity. There have been many instances of childless couple bearing children after visiting dargahs and mazaars, but we don’t go on preaching childless couples to visit dargahs and mazaars as these are mere co-incidents. These leaves of ber tree are the cause of spreading shirk and biddah in the Muslim community as every problem, trouble and disease are being treated using water with leaves of the ber tree on which some ayat have been recited. Sheikh Abdur Rahman bin Hasan Aal-e-Shaikh (R.H .) has stated that in the book of Wahab bin Manbah (R.H .), it is written that seven leaves of ber tree should be first crushed and added to water and Ayat-ul-Kursi and the four Qul be recited on it and then drunk by the person affected with any problem. He will then be relieved of his troubles by Almighty Allah. This treatment is also beneficial for a person who has been forced not to have sex with his wife. All these actions are self-made and not proved by Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) and are in additions to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) and, as told by him, all such actions are Mardood (Sahih Bukhaari).  4 | Page  jhad-phoonk means :- to recite words of Quran or of other sources and blow by mouth in order to get rid of diseases and problems. According to Hadeeth of Sahih Muslim, Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) asked his followers to present to him all the jhaad-phoonk, and said that jhaad-phoonk which has no shirkya word is allowed. It is to be noted that Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) didn’t give permission to us to perform any jhaad - phoonk which isn’t shirk but he put the condition of first presenting all the  jhaad-phoonk to him and only those non-shirkya jhaad-phoonk which he approved will be allowed. If that would not had been the case then he would have simply said that all  jhaad-phoonk which does not contain shirk is allowed but importantly he put the condition of presenting the jhaad-phoonk to him. Almighty Allah has perfected the religion Islam with Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). No more prophets will be sent to us with the message of Allah. All the jhaad-phoonk that Almighty Allah accepts has been approved by Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) and now that he is no more among us, no more jhaad-phoonk can be presented to him to get approval, so we cannot claim from our own that some particular jhaad-phoonk will be beneficial for us in some particular case. We cannot assume by ourselves that by reciting this ayat of Quran a man can get rid of evil eye, by this ayat a student would get success in his examination, by this ayat one can get treasure, by this ayat magic and spell would vanish, by this ayat Jinn would leave the body of a “possessed” person, by this ayat one childless couple would get a child, by this ayat one can win the case in court, by this ayat one can defeat his enemy, by this ayat one would be succeed in love etc. Only those Ayat of Quran and masnoon duas are valid in jhaad-phoonk which has been approved from Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). Any act of jhaad-phoonk from our own, even if contains only ayat of Quran, is a biddah, and every biddah leads to hellfire. 1 jhad-phoonk means :- to recite words of Quran or of other sources and blow by mouth in order to get rid of diseases and problems Hazrat Imam ibn Taymiyyah (R.H.):
