The Elite Stand In Honour Of The Chosen One By Shaykh Al Islam Imam Ahmad Rida Khan Al Qadiri – Iqamat Al-Qiyamah ‘Ala Ta’in Al-Qiyam Li-Nabiyy Tihamah -Translated By Muhammad Husain Al-Qadiri
THE ELITE STAND IN HONOUR OF THE CHOSEN ONE
The book before you is of paramount importance. It was written at a time when the celebration of the Prophet’s birth was being called into question by misguided innovators (1299 AH/1881 CE).
More than a century later, this book continues to answer those groups that violently oppose this meritorious practice of the People of the Prophetic Way and the Majority of Scholars (Ahl al- Sunnah wa al-Jama‘ah).
Consequentially, it is essential reading for contemporary Muslims as it defends the practice of standing (Qiyam) during the celebration of the Prophet’s birth && (Mawlid).
Iqamat Al-Qiyamah “Ala Ta’in Al-Qiyam Li-Nabiyy Al-Tihamah & is an Arabic title that means, ‘A Raging Apocalypse upon he who Censures Standing in Honour of the Noble Prophet of Tihamah’. It serves to remind, give glad tidings and warn.
For the believers it reminds them about the proximity of the Day of Judgment (Qiyamah) and the importance of loving and honouring the Prophet.
For the detractors it warns them about the severity of their offense, and the self-inflicted punishment that awaits them in this life and the next. One of the Signs of the Last Days is that people (who profess to be Muslims) will attack Allah’s Beloved Messenger by subversively demeaning his station and honour, thus they censure standing and Mawlid.
