Mufti Hashim Attari visits Shaykh Saqib Iqbal [Dawateislami In Lahore]

𝗗𝗮𝘄𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗶𝘀𝗹𝗮𝗺𝗶 I𝗻 𝗟𝗮𝗵𝗼𝗿𝗲 – An Exemplary Meeting, MashaAllah

The ulama are the inheritors of the Prophets.
A very fruitful, friendly and productive meeting took place between Shaykh Saqib Iqbal and Mufti Hashim Attari of Dawateislami. The love between the shuyukh should be a lesson for many of the coming religious teachers, preachers and students as to how the true people of knowledge and piety should act.


The list of subjects that were discussed during the few hours that the Shuyukh spoke for is endless and of-course, not possible of restricting within a few short paragraphs. Some of the key features of this conversation revolved around multiple fitan that have crept up in recent years and the modus operandi of tackling them.


Mufti Hashim’s Understanding of Usul

When the teachers at Kanz Ul Huda watched the recording they were impressed by Mufti Hashim’s understanding of Usul and appreciated him for staying true to the correct methodology in Furu’. Unfortunately, Nowadays we see jurists giving all sorts of absurd verdicts and the reason for this is often quite simple, the methodology of reaching that ruling was problematic from the very outset. The shaykh made plenty of duas for the work of Mufti Sahib and expressed his appreciation for the beautiful work of Dawateislami.


Issues revolving Fiqh, Usul ul Fiqh, Ilm Ul Kalaam and many other topics were extensively explored whilst interesting and often over looked strategies of defeating modern day complications in their application were critically discussed. Shaykh Saqib provided multiple solutions to some of the ongoing jurisprudential and creedal issues that have caused much confusion amongst the students of the sacred sciences and proposed a number of recommendations which Mufti Hashim sahib appreciated greatly and took onboard.


Takhasus syllabus by Shaykh Saqib

The two conversed about a number of potential threats which have not yet been highlighted or even truly acknowledged by people in circles of religious learning and stressed the importance of filling the void in these areas. Shaykh Saqib spoke about the Takhasus syllabus and whilst expressing his admiration and praising the strengths within it, highlighted certain areas in which particular additions can be made.


Mufti Hashim mentioned how he himself will work with the shaykh and three expert mufti’s of Dawateislami to ensure these delicacies are examined. Allah willing.


Another interesting feature of the discussion was Shaykh Saqibs reasoning and explanation of how, especially in today’s modern age, those interested in the study of the Qur’an should be exposed to its structural cohesion, sequential coherence, and thematic beauty. If a student delves into these details under the guidance of someone dedicated to these branches of learning, he will unerringly recognize its perfection and truly value its meaning.


Tafsir Al Qur’an by Shaykh Saqib

Alhamdulillah, we have witnessed not only Muslims, but multiple non-Muslims appreciate these fine details at Shaykh Saqib’s tafsir Al Qur’an seminars.
The two also conversed about the Dangers of minority fiqh, rulings in relation to the sighting of the moon, and the nature of Aqwal in the four Madhahib on Imkan al Ru’yah (possibility of visibility). The jurisprudential methodology of the Madhahib Thalatha (Maliki, Shafi’i,Hanbali), their Ashaab al tarjeeh, Mufta bihi, and Mu’tamad aqwaal in comparison with the Hanafi methodology along with the complications in differentiating between the valid and anomalous positions of the Hanbali madhab for those who are not fully acquainted with the Hanbali methodology.


Allah grant us the true comprehension of the deen and protects us from corruption in our Usul and Aqaid. Weakness in these areas is no doubt, a sign from the signs of the hour. May Allah grant us understanding and not take the intricate details of the pristine Shariah lightly.


Beautiful Gift by Mufti Sahib to Shaykh

Writing lengthy works on Tafsir, Hadith or similar subjects is one thing, but doing so whilst staying within the principles of The Ahlus Sunnah isn’t everyone’s area of interest. Mufti sahib gifted the shaykh with copies of his books, especially his pleasing commentary on the Jami’ of Imam Tirmidhi in which he exercised the above beautifully. It’s worth commenting here that although Mufti Hashim is very simple in his nature, he is the teacher of hundreds of scholars around the globe.


We pray that Allah blesses him and all his students with immense success so that they continue in their efforts to benefit the Ahlus Sunnah.


Finally, corruption and weaknesses within many people Aqaid in relation to Tajsim and Tashbih were also conversed whilst the lack of efforts in refuting them were highlighted.
The shaykh gifted Mufti sahib with a copy of his recognized work ‘Subhan Al Rahman, Anil jismi wal Jihati wal Makaan’ on the subject and concluded the meeting with a dua.



We ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’aala to bless the shuyukh with further barakah in their works and allow the coming generations to benefit from the work they are carrying out.


Note: The above is only a brief overview of some of the topics that were discussed and jotted down by the teachers of Kanz ul Huda from the video recording.
