Tahir ul Qadri Allowing Sajda and Feet Kissing

By Shayan Khan • Oct 1st, 2009 • Category: Misc • 102 Comments

I was dumbfounded when I saw a video in which the chief of Minhaj-ul-Quran, Allama Tahirul Qadri was sitting in a qawali gathering and his fans were dancing and kissing his feet and performing Sajda to him. The man was sitting there smugly and the idiots were making religion a joke.

    where is video I think you never bother to revise your observations,Any how this is not surprise in Pakistani circle where pir shaaib is still a dominating personality to runs individuals’ fate in their hands.Pakistan holds majority who have weak faith on Allah and strong trust on people who control their minds through power of religious knowledge.If it happens it is normal practices here.

  2. Nazia, Shayan has given the link in the post. But now the YouTube has removed the video with the announcement:

    This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Minhaj-ul-Quran International.

    actually he did same on other topics he presented in past where he was unable to activate his video link.That is why I am mentioning it other wise I know very well that such kind of wrong practice is routine of believers of such known religious icons in our community.

  4. Here is the link to see this video

    May ALLAH SUBHANA WATALAH guide this islamic scholar who is icon and favourite personality for all ignorant and illiterate population in pakistan.Is there any hadeeth indicating sahabah kissing prophet MOHAMMADS (PBUH) feet or any such dance and then kissing prophet or any other islamic scholar in old times? NAUZOBILLAH.
    PARADISE is under the feet of our mothers according to hadeeth..may be the great scholar is changing his gender to be respected by others.He alows sufism according to his faith and in extremes the ignorant islamic women will also pracice to kiss his feet ( NAUZOBILLAH).
    I can only pray to ALLAH to guide dr.tahirul qadri saab from all innovations and associations with ALLAH SUBHANA WATALAH and show mercy to all fellow muslims who are imitating him with out any sound proofs and logics from QURAN AND SUNNAH.MAY ALLAH forgive us and prevent us from such temptations.

  6. haye ray hamari bewaqoof awam…………..we need to be little mature at least…..what drama is tahir-ul-qadri doing….???


  8. Some mischievous and unwise people tampered with the video clips of Mahfil Samaa` held in Damascus under the banner of Minhaj-ul-Quran International in 2005 and uploaded them on the internet to propagate that people were falling in prostration before Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri and that Shaykh-ul-Islam was appreciating the gesture. It is stated that no such incident took place and it is but a slander, pure and simple. Those who have cooked this conspiracy are afraid that their fabricated beliefs are being hammered. In their heart of hearts they are afraid of Shaykh-ul-Islam’s towering intellectual personality and his powerful arguments based on Quran and Hadith. They are, through these base tricks, trying to distract the attention of people from Shaykh-ul-Islam’s wisdom-laden speeches and books. Mindlessly, they are flinging mud on the person who presented Islam based the Holy Qur`an and Hadith; on intellectual level they have yielded, so they are behaving in this foolish way.

  9. UFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF , thats open Shirk …. i cant beleive that these are muslimss?????? I see Video from

  10. This scene can also be seen in Ismalia place where Agha khan usually makes visit
    Pirs like peer pagara and other gaddi nassheen also follow this gesture of showing their supremacy to subordinates.
    Some time subordinate do it on choice of showing his/her respect to that faith healers.
    These scenes are also common on the tombs of our saints where people feel no hesitation of bowing down in front of graves.
    So shrik in our country has many diversity.
    Our some religious scholars even justified bowing down of wife in front of her husband after Allah.
    The another way to oppress woman by placing the standard of Husband in the queue behind Allah.

  11. it is not the same as sajdah. The hadiths are known and it is also known that Imam Muslim wanted to kiss the feet of Imam Bukhari.

    Al-Wazi ibn Amir said, “We came and were told, ‘That is the Messenger of Allah.’ We took his hands and feet and kissed them.” [Al-Mufrad 976]

    Suhayb said, “I saw ‘Ali kiss the hands and feet of al-’Abbas. [Imam Bukhari’s Adab Al-Mufrad 975]… Read More… Read More

    Riyadh-us-Saliheen [889]

    Safwan ibn ‘Assal said, “A Jew said to his companion, ‘Let us go to this Prophet.’ So they went to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and asked him about nine clear signs,” and he mentioned the hadith to its end. “They kissed his hand and feet and said, ‘We testify that you are a Prophet.’” [Tirmidhi

  12. Then there are those (including a few of my tablighi mates) who even after being shown certain hadiths, they still can… Read More’t accept the fact that in order to kiss someones feet one will need to go into a position which is similar to the sujood position, then how can that not resemble sajdah and thus shirk..?? shaykh gibril gives a clear straight forward & beautiful reply to a question similar to this here; It is difficult to imagine anyone kissing another’s foot other than in a posture seeming to resemble prostration to some, and it would be an outlandish suggestion that imitating the Companions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) and the great early Muslims could be among the major sins

  13. Abu Dawud : Book 41 : 5206
    Narrated al-Wazi’ ibn Zari’:
    Umm Aban, daughter of al-Wazi’ ibn Zari’, quoting his grandfather, who was a member of the deputation of AbdulQays, said: When we came to Medina, we raced to be first to dismount and kiss the hand and foot of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him).
    now wahabis nd deobandis r munafiq people…..yai log andhe yahooodi hai jo k pakistan mei shirk shirk kai fatwae laga rahay hai……bhai sahab ap ap khudi faisla kare feet kising aur sajda karne mei zameen asman ka farq hai……nd feet kising alowed hai,,,,yai wahabi deobandi bas fitna phila rahay hai k aik sunni kai alaam ko badnaam kare

  14. if any have questions then mail me

  15. Can any body kiss Allah? Then how come kissing feet is shirk? I’ve kissed my mother’s feet did I commit any shirk? And the biggest stupidity is that kissing feet is taken as Sajda. Who the heck does kiss the ground/carpet/etc when performing sajda?

    Don’t just ready your “blame” on some odd things.

  16. Kissing a hygiene feet doesn’t comes in range of shirk and specially to our love Ones.
    How much our close one are in love with us and have done extra ordinary job, no one can say they are entitled for any kind of bowing down and placing their standard near to Allah.
    People want to be guided, cared and some time bullied too.So they start depending on other human too much whom they always consider sd source of power and blessings and here comes the way to shirk.
    Placing people on respectable and lovable places might be a human desire and instinct but depending on Allah is our part of faith which is obligatory for all as totality of one’s belief.

  17. Please read our bazurgan e deen like shams tabrezi etc.





  19. jo bhi feet kissig ko SAJDA kahe yeh uska JHOOT hai jiska allah gawah hai. aur jitni bar woh apne ghamand ki wajah se inkar karta jayega utna hi aur apne aap se jhoot bolta jayega. beher haal kuch bhi kehne se pehle thoda soche ki aap kya keh rahe hain. apne liye nahi to kam se kam allah ke liye.

  20. Aslam o alikum too all. jis jis ne ult comments dye han sab hi sence less han.. Bhai jis se app boht payar karte han kya us k peeer bhi choom nai sakte. yhe kisi sence less ne dekh kar is ko sajda karna kah dya… stupid and down pakistani mindss… shame on your self…
