PRINTING THE NAQSH MUBARAK OF RASOOLULLAH'S

(SALLAL LAAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM) NA'LAIN PAAK


QUESTION:

What is the ruling on printing the Naqsh Mubarak of Rasoolullah's (Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) Na'lain Paak on the title page of a book or anywhere within the book? Some Ulema rule doing so as Haraam and a mockery.

ANSWER:

Doing so is not impermissible. There is nothing wrong in printing the Naqsh Paak within the book on its title page for the attainment of Barkat. Yes, the Naqsh Paak must be respected. The Ulema and Imaams of the Deen used to copy the Naqsh Paak of Rasoolullah's (Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) Na'lain Shareef and Rauza Shareef on paper and books. They used to kiss the Naqsh Paak themselves and order it to be placed on the eyes and heads. The treatise of Allama Ahmed Muqri, “Fathul-Mutaal fi Madhi Khairin-Niaal”, is a valuable work on this topic as stated by Aala Hazrat, Imaam Ahmed Raza Khan in his treatises “Abrul-Muqaal” and “Shifaaul-Waala”. A Naqsha of the Naal Shareef was printed in the beginning of Fatawa Razvia, Vol. 1. When Huzoor Mufti Azam Hind Published Vol. 4 of Fatawa Razvia, he also printed the Naqsh Paak of the Naal Shareef. Ruling it to be Haraam and a mockery is totally wrong.
