    Mufti Taqi Usmani did NOT sign the “Amman Message”

    Many people have been falsely claiming that Mufti Taqi Usmani was a signatory to the so-called “Amman Message.” Nothing could be further from the truth; Mufti Taqi Usmani in fact holds the view that it is a necessity and a must to declare Takfeer of certain Shia. We read from the official Deobandi website, www.ask-imam.com :

    Question:

    Please clarify the status of Mufti Taqi Saheb’s endorsement of “Amman Message” especially regarding the a person who associates himself to be “Jafari, Zaydi, Ibadi, and Tahiri”. According to this Amman message, all these are muslims and declaring such a person an apostate is imposible and impermissible. Thereafter the website also shows his signature of endorsement on the website.

    Answer:

    In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

    The question was posed to Mufti Muhammad Taqi Uthmani Saheb himself. His reply is as under:

    Muhtaram,

    Assalamu alaikum,

    Thank you for your email. I am not a signatory of the Amman message sent by you. Instead, Prince Ghazi had sent to me a question that I answered in detail. The text of my answer was then published by them in a book which has my Fatwa as separate from Amman Message. Later I found that my fatwa is also available on the same site under the heading of “Fatwa of Ulama” .

    Wassalam

    Muhammad Taqi Usmani

    Question:

    Please comment on the endorsement of Mufti Taqi Uthmani Saheb of the Amman Message wherein all Shias are endorsed as muslims and there being no possibility of Takfir against them.

    Answer:

    Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

    In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    Recently we have received a couple of queries regarding the views of Respected Hazrat Mufti Taqi Uthmani Saheb daamat barakatuhum about “Amman Message”. It states:

    Whosoever is an adherent to one of the four Sunni schools (Mathahib) of Islamic jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i and Hanbali), the two Shi’i schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Ja`fari and Zaydi), the Ibadi school of Islamic jurisprudence and the Thahiri school of Islamic jurisprudence, is a Muslim. Declaring that person an apostate is impossible and impermissible

    The website promotes that more than 500 reputable authorities have endorsed this declaration. Many laymen have accepted it as a unanimous consensus of the Ulama. (Ijmaa). We wish to say that this is indeed not the case and even Mufti Taqi Uthmani’s endorsement is not in its totality of this “Amman Message”.

    The same website which has posted the endorsement of Hazrat Mufti Taqi Saheb has also posted his seven page fatwa in this regard. We are surprised as to why has this fatwa not been translated into English for the common readers. This Fatwa shows the accurate stance of Mufti Saheb. On page 3 of this fatwa Hazrat Mufti Saheb categorizes those Madhahîb who claim to be Muslim into 3 distinct groups. In the first of these three groups Hazrat Mufti Saheb says,


    First type: Are those who claim to be Muslim, but reject something which has been necessarily known to be from the religion. They hold firmly, for example, that the Prophethood is continued after Nabi Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and they believe in the prophethood of one of the Dajjals who has claimed prophethood after our Noble Prophet, seal of the prophethood sallallahu alayhi wasallam, like the Qadîyânîs; or they hold firmly that the Noble Quran which we have today is changed, Al’Iyaazubillah. And that our Quraan is not the real on, like what some of the extremists among the Shîas say; or they hold firmly (in the aqeeda of ) Aloohiya or some of the specific attributes of it being in one of the humans, like what is attributed to Alawiyeen(Alawis) and others besides them. Then these all are not Muslims and it is necessary to make Takfir of them.”

    From the above we understand adequately that Mufti Saheb has not endorsed the Amman Message in its totality, though he has elaborated the Sharii stance of Takfeer. This first category includes those upon whom takfeer can be made, rather it is necessary. …That is to say, takfir will be necessary upon them as well.

    And the Ahlul Bid'a try to shut us up by pulling out Hadrats supposed signing of Amman Message.
