Answer of Shaykh Sarfraz to the Barelwis


A nice answer given in the form of poetry by Shaykh Sarfraz Khan Safdar against the poetry of Mawlana Ahmad Raza. The poetry of Shaykh Sarfraz is given in red, the poetry of Mawlana Ahmad Raza (which is mentioned in Hada’iq Bakhshish) in black:
————————

We prostrated our head towards the Rawda, so what does it matter to you? Our hearts were prostrating O Najdi, so what does it matter to you?

If you became polytheist, why would we care? You became a slave of the belly, then why would we care?

We said sitting and standing ‘Ya Rasul Allah!’ asking his help, so what does it matter to you?

You distorted the Qur’an and Hadith and was cursed with excommunication, so what do we care?

Our king regarded us his slave (Abd) saying ‘Ya Ibadi’ (O my slaves!), so what does it matter to you?

You bowed in front of those other than the Creator of the universe, so what do we care?
 
When did he address the slaves of the Deo with this title? Neither you were of him in past nor you are in present, so what does it matter to you?

You preferred polytheism and innovation and left Tawhid and Sunnah behind, so what do we care?

The Najdi is dying of grudge why we revere him; this is our religion, so what does it matter to you?

You forgot the verse of the Qur’an ‘iyyaka nasta’in‘, so what do we care? 

What do we have to do with the slaves of Deo, we are the slaves (Abd) of the Mustafa, then what does it matter to you?

We all are slaves (Abd) of Allah, so why would we care if you are the slave (Abd) of Mustafa?

[Aankhon ki thandak, p. 171-172]
