The scholar Muhammad al-Yaqoubi, whom Barelwis deem as one of their own, sits here in Turkey with the Deobandi scholar Azizur Rahman and mentions here his sanad back to the Deobandi scholars such as Anwar Shah Kashmiri. He also narrates back Shah Abdul Ghani, whom he describes as the “pride of peoplle of Hijaaz” (fakhr alh al-hijaaz). Shah Abdul Ghani is also counted as a Wahhabi according to Barelwi standards.
According to the manhaj of Alahazrat, Al-Yaqoubi should at least be deemed as a deviant! We wonder whether our Barelwi brethren will bring out a fatwa against him.
