ALLAINCE BETWEEN ISAMEEL DEHALVEE AND BRITISH GOVT: ALL REFERENCE FROM DEOBANDI BOOKS
The so called “ deobandi contribution “to the India freedom struggle begins with their founder Shah Ismaeel Dehalvee and his teacher Sayed Ahmed Barewli. So it is important to know which books do deobandis themselves rely to know the history/ biography of their leaders.
1) Sawanag Ahmedi wa Tawareekh Ajeeba – About Life of sayed ahmed barewli and Ismaeel Dehalvee – By Munshi mohammed jafar Thaneswari
2) Hayat Tayyeba — About Life of sayed ahmed barewli and Ismaeel Dehalvee — By Mirza Hairat Dehalvee
Mawlana Manzoor Nomani al Deobandi writes
“ Hayat Tayeeba of Mirza Hairat Dehalvee is an authentic and reliable biography of Shah Ismaeel Dehalvee “
( Al Furqan , Shaheed Number, 1355 AH , page 51)
About biography of Sayed Ahmed Mawlana Hasan ali Nadvi writes
“ Tawareekh Ajeeba is the first book about the life history of syed ahmed through which much can be known about the life of syed ahmed sahib”
( Seerat syed ahmed , page 8)
Munshi Thaneswari writes
“ Few of the historians have presented syed sahab in bad picture. They have potrayed him as an enemy of British government . To remove this doubt and deception I decided to present the facts from the life of syed sahab so that people can see the truth. Upon examining his life history it can be seen clearly that at least at 20 places using proof from SHARIAH , syed sahab instructed his followers not to revolt against britishers “
( Sawang Ahmedi , page 226, Steam press, Lahore)
So here we have his biographer writing that syed sahab never revolted against british and we have deobandi scholars potraying syed sahab as a freedom fighter! And when asked to prove their claim , all they have is Nothing !
“ It becomes clear from this that syed sahab was never in support of jihad against British. He used to think this government as his own government. There is no doubt in it that if British government was against syed sahab , then syed sahab would not have received support which he was getting in his fight against sikh. The British government wanted syed sahab to reduce the influence of Sikh “
(Sawang Ahmed , page 139)
And now read this to be surprised!
Mawlana Manzoor Nomani al Deobandi writes
“ It is very famous that he did not proclaim any Jihad against British, instead in his meeting at Calcutta or Patna he gave his consent for supporting british government and this is also well known that british government also supported him at many instances”
(AL FURQAN , SHAHEED NUMBER , 1355 AH , PAGE 78)
To get more surprises read this from the same book.
“ And this is also true that during his stay at Calcutta , one day when Mawlana Ismaeel Dehalvee was giving lecture ( waa’z) , one man asked a fatwa to mawlana that whether it is permissible to declare jihad against British govt? The mawlana replied it is not correct in any way to declare jihad against this just and impartial government”
( Sawang Ahmedi page 57)
The same incidence has also been recorded in Hayate Tayyeba
“ In Calcutta , when Mawlana Ismaeel was giving lecture about Jihad and about the atrocities of Sikh then some one stood up from the gathering and asked “ why don’t you give fatwa to do jihad against the britishers”. He replied” it is not wajib ( compulsory) to do any jihad with them .( aap ne jawab diya – un per jihad karna kisee tarah wajib nahee ). First of all we are under their shelter and secondly they do not make any hinderance in fulfilling our religious obligation. We all total freedom under this government . In fact if there is any attack on this government then it is FARD upon muslims to fight that enemy and save our BRITISH GOvernemtn from any kind of hardship “
( Hayat tayyeba , page 29 , farooqi printing press , delhi)
“ On what basis can we do Jihad against British government and kill our shariah law”?
( Sawang Ahmedi , page 71)
“ Lord Hastings was very happy with the doings / achievements ( karguzariyon) of sayed Ahmed. A tent was erected between the two armies and three men made a treaty; Ameer Khan , Lord Hasting and sayed ahmed sahab. Sayed Ahmed Sahab had great diffciculty in bringing “ameer kahn”into right frame “ ( sayed sahab ney ameer khan jo badee mushkil sey sheeshy mein utara tha)
( Hayate Tayyeba page 294)
Mawlana Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi writes
“ Once the group of syed sahab and his followers was passing through boat . They saw a british rider who was waiting with lots of food in Big containers .( URDU== palaki ) He arrived near boat and asked where is “ padari sahab” . Hazrat replied from the boat” I am here “ . The british rider got down the horse , took his hat in his hand and reached on the boat. After inquiring well being , the british rider said “ I am waiting for you since three days and had appointed my men to look for your group. They told me that today your group will be reaching here , so I was busy getting food prepared for you since sunset. Sayed sahab ordered the food to be taken in utensils . The food was distributed among the group and the britishe rider stayed for two- three hours and then left the place”
(Seerat sayed ahmed Ahmed Shaheed , page 190 , By Mawlana Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi)
This is the Urdu wording..
“ sayed ahmed sahab ka qafila kashtiyon per sawaar ho kar ek maqam say guzar raha tha ki itaney mein dekhtaey hain ki ek angrez ghoday per sawaar chand palikiyon mein khana rakh kashti key qareeb aaya aur poocha ki padre sahab kahan hai. Hazrat ney jawab diya “main yahan per mawjood hoon”. Angrez ghodey per sey utara aur topee haath mein lekar kashtee per pahooncha aur mijaz purse eke baad kaha ki teen roz sey mainey apaney mulazim yahan khadey kar diye they ki aap ki ittila karein. Aaj unhonay ittila ki kee aaghalab yeh hai kli hazrat qafiley ke saath aaj tumhary makaan ke samey pahoonchey, yeh ittila pa kar gharoob aftaab tak main khaney ki tayyari mein mashgool raha , tayyar kar key laya hoon . Sayed sahab ney hukm diya ki khana apaney bartanon mein muntaqil kar liya jai. Khana le kar qafiley mein taqseem kar diya gaya aur angrez do- teen ghantay tahar kar chala gaya”
Can any one tell me why was this British soldier waiting for three days for sayed ahmed sahab? And when this soldier said : where is padari sahab , prompt came a reply , I am here! There was no strange feeling when a british called a mawlana as “ padree sahab” .
And above this , the deobandis spread on internet that , shah ismaeel dehalvee was fighting against british!
Sayed Ahmed Barelwi himself tells about his mission
“ I have been blessed with an ilham that I should fight with sikh and end their existence .”
( sawang Ahmedi page 180)
He also said
“ My fight is not with muslims or Kuffar , but my fight is with Sikh . I have no enmity with british government
Now read what Mawlana Rashid Gangohee says
“ Hazrat Mawlana Rashid Ahmed said that he was informed by Hafiz jaani that he was one of the member of that group. Many miracles were seen to be performed by sayed sahab. Maulvi Abdul Hay lucknowi, maulvi isameel dehalvee and maulvi Hussein rampuri were also members of the group and all these were in the ship. Sayed SAHAB DID HIS FIRST JIHAD AGAINST MUSAMMA YAAR MUHAMMED KHAN , WHO WAS THE RULER OF YAGISTAN”
( tazkiratur Rashid , vol 2 , page 270 )
I want readers to decide , whether yaar mohammed khan is the name of some muslim or some sikh?
Please recall , I have posted scan on another thread where we saw how sayed ahmed sahab left battle front in between and was found sitting in some cave ! When his followers found him and asked him why he has left the battle field , then he said , he has been commanded like this !
So at one place he says , he has been given ilham to fight sikh and later he says he has been commanded to leave battle field, On the same post it was shown how this sayed ahmed sahab destroyed those muslim graves which were elevated!
How serious was mawlana in his fight against Sikh , can be read here.
“ When sayed sahab had enough people with him , then with consultation from Mawlana Isameel, and using influence of shaykh Ghulam Ali rayees , Allahabad , he informed Lt Governor of the north western region that we are planning to do Jihad with sikh , does Govt has any objection to this? The Lt Governor replied that as long as our sovereignty is not effected , we are not bothered”
(Hayate Tayyeba, page 302)
This is cause Jihad for british govt! See , how sayed sahab is taking permission from british rulers and calling it jihad !!
