Hadrat Ibn Mas’ud Radi Allahu Anhuma reported that the Messenger of Allah
SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam has said,

“I forbade you to visit graves, but you may now visit them, because they produce abstinence from the world and act as a reminder of the Hereafter.” [Sunan Ibn Majah, Book on Funerals, Page 112]

All Praise is due to Almighty Allah, Master of the Day of Judgment, Choicest Peace and Salutations upon the Master of humanity, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), his family, Companions and all the Righteous Servants of Allah.

Few years ago, I received an email from a brother regarding the Ruling over saying and writing Sug-e-Madina, Sug-e-Taybah etc. for Human beings (Ashraf-ul-Makhlooqat). In connection to that email, I found many confused people objecting that Humans are labeled as Ashraful Makhlooqaat then why they use words like SUG (Dog) for themselves?

"Hum ISHQ kay banday hain kyun Baat bar'hai hay" but just for their satisfaction, following are some justifications and explanations to this issue.


Counter Questions:

First of all, I would like to put a counter question to them:

  • Why Hadrat Ali is called Sher-e-Khuda (Lion of ALLAH)?
  • Why Sayyiduna Hamza was titled Asadullah wa Rasooluh (Lion of ALLAH and HIS Messenger) by none other then Sayyiduna Rasoolullah Sallallaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam himself?
  • Why Hadrat Khalid bin Waleed is labeled as Saifullah (Sword of ALLAH)?
  • Why Sayyiduna Mihraan got the title of Safeena (Ship) from Sayyiduna Rasoolullah Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam?
  • And why Sarkar Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam himself called his companion as Abu Hurayra (Father of cats)? RidwanULLAHi Ta'ala Alaihim Ajama'een

Undoubtedly, with Allah is the knowledge of the Hour, and He sends down rain and knows what is in the wombs of the mothers and no soul knows what it will earn tomorrow and no soul knows in what land it will die. Undoubtedly, Allah is the Knower, All Aware. [31:34]

The opponents say on the basis of this verse that the knowledge of all the above mention things known as Five Branches of Knowledge lies with Almighty Allah and no one else! By this they conclude that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him) did not possess Ilm-e-Ghayb. This is indeed a hasty conclusion. Let us have an eye over some Authentic Commentaries of Qur'an to understand the real and true meaning of this verse.


Commentaries on the Above Verse of Holy Qur'an

Tafseer-e-Saavi Hashiya Ala Tafseer al Jalalain comments under this verse:

اي من حيث ذاتها واما باعلام الله للعبد فلا مانع منه كالانبياء و بعض الاولياء قال تعالى ولا يحيطون بشئي من علمه الا بما شاء قال تعالى فلا يظهر علي غيبه احدا الا من ارتضي من رسول فلا مانع من كون الله يطلع بعض عباده الصلحين علي بعض المغيبات فتكون معجزة للنبي و كرامة للولي ولذلك قال العلماء الحق انه لم يخرج نبينا من الدنيا حتي اطلعه علي تلك الخمس
