Ahle sunnat Wal Jamaat Scholars views on Kashf Ilham Qutub Abdal and karamat e Aulia


(وأما النفع المتعدي والنفع للخلق وتدبير العالم فقد قالوا : هم تجري أرزاق العباد على أيديهم وينزلون بالعلم والوحي ويحفظون ويمسكون وغير ذلك من أفعال الملائكة .
والجواب : أن صالح البشر لهم مثل ذلك وأكثر منه ويكفيك من ذلك شفاعة الشافع المشفع فى المذنبين وشفاعته فى البشر كى يحاسبوا وشفاعته فى أهل الجنة حتى يدخلوا ثم بعد ذلك تقع شفاعة الملائكة . وأين هم من قوله : (وما أرسلناك إلا رحمة للعالمين )وأين هم من الذين ((يؤثرون على أنفسهم ولو كان بهم خصاصة)) ، وأين هـم ممن يدعون إلى الهدى ودين الحق ، ومن سن سنة حسنة ، وأين هم من قوله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ( إن من أمتى من يشفع فى أكثر من ربيعة ومضر ) ، وأين هم من الأقطاب والأوتاد والأغواث والأبدال والنجباء؟)

In this Fatwa Ibn Taymiyya is defending the opinion which says, that the Salih Muslims are better than the angels are. And he answers to those, who say: Yes, but the Angels can spread Rizq, use the Creation, administer the Universe and bring Wahy and guard and preserve humans. He says: The pious ones have this too and even more! (See Scan V4, P. 232)

Ibn Taymiyya confirms the existence of Qutb and Awtad and Ghawt.

وأين هم من الأقطاب والأوتاد والأغواث والأبدال والنجباء؟
In the same Fatwa he says at the end of the paragaph: and how can we compare the Angels with the Aqtab and Awtad and Abdal and Nujaba. (See Volume 4, P.232)

Ibn Taymiyya says the Awliya can have Kashf

About Kashf he says, that it is a part from the believe of ahlu sunnah, that the awliya can have kashf, like knowing things about veiled matters. But we shouldnt understand it wrong and say, that they know everything, this is kufr. But Allah can give trough dreams and Firasa and Ilham(Inspiration).

He says:
ومن أصول أهل السنة : التصديق بكرامات الأولياء وما يجري الله على أيديهم من خوارق العادات في أنواع العلوم والمكاشفات ، وأنواع القدرة والتأثيرات

And one of the foundations of the believe of Ahlu Sunnah is the believe in Karamat of Awliya and the miracles which Allah lets happen trough them in different sciences and in the mukhaschafat and the varioused ways of might and influence they have. (Volume3, P.103)

Ibn Tamiyya says, that Allah can give some Awliya "Kun"

Ibn Taymiyya confirms the narration that the servant of allah, when he swears or gives an oat, that allah realizes this for them.
And he narrates a Hadith in which it is said: "O my Slave, I say Kun faya Kun and if you obey me I will give you the ability of Kun faya Kun." see first link (Volume 4, P.230/231)

Ibn Taymiyya says, that the Awliya can get the ability to resurrect dead people, see scans. (An-Nubuwwat P. 807-808 und P. 821)

Ahlus Sunnah believe in Karamat of Auliya: By Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taimiyah (RA) [Sharh Al-Aqeedat-il-Wasitiyah]


وَمِنْ أُصًولِ أَهْلِ السُّنَّةِ: التَّصْدِيقُ بِكَرَامَاتَ الأَوْلِيَاءِ وَمَا يُجْرِي اللهُ عَلَى أَيْدِيهِم مِّنْ خَوَارِقِ الْعَادَاتِ فِي أَنْوَاعِ الْعُلُومِ وَالْمُكَاشَفَاتِ وَأَنْوَاعِ الْقُدْرَةِ وَالتَّأْثِيرَات ، وَالمَاثُور عَنْ سَالِفِ الأُمَمِ فِي سُورَةِ الْكَهْفِ وَغَيْرِهَا، وَعَنْ صَدْرِ هَذِهِ الأُمَّةِ مِنَ الصَّحَابَةِ وَالتَّابِعِينَ وَسَائِرِ فِرق الأُمَّةِ، وَهِيَ مَوْجُودَةٌ فِيهَا إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ ۔
The testimony of the Karamat (charismata) occurred by the Auliya (those righteous people who are close to Allah) also forms part of the principles of Ahlus-Sunnah, as also the testimony of all those extraordinary occurrences and habits which Allah manifests through them in terms of various knowledges, spiritual experiences, powers, and influences and those that are mentioned in the Qur'anic Surah Al Kahf etc. regarding former communities and about the initial period of the Sahaba and Taba'een of this Ummah till today and will continue to remain till the day of judgement.
