Islamic tradition of commemorating the death anniversary of the ancestors and the pious

Ajmir Dergah Urs,India

Authenticity of Conducting Urs (obituary anniversaries of the Pious and ancestors)

In the  Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Peace and blessings of Allah be upon the Prophet Muhammad, his noble family and companions

So many false groups who are sladering Sufis (Saints of Islam) and Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah (followers of traditional Islam), also attacking Muslims who are commemorating the death anniversary of their ancestors or the pious scholars (Awliya Allah). Because such groups aim to uproot the heritage and history of Islam and the remembrance of pious Muslims and leaders of that tribe or community.

Through the commemoration of the birth and or death of the pious ancestors, Muslims kept their legacy and memory alive and passed on to the next generation. And that inspired them to preserve and uphold the good traditions practised by that creed .

And it is the Sunnah (Tradition) of Sahaba (Companions of the Prophet) to commemorate the death of the pious. It is the Sunnah of the Quran to commemorate the death of the pious. It is the practice in Hajj pilgrimage to commemorate the life of Adam (A.S) and the Family of Abraham (A.S).

Evidence for Conducting Urs/Uroos:

It was narrated that Abu Hussain , whose name was Khalid Al-Madani,said:”We were in Al Madinah on the day of Ashura,and the girls were beating Duff and singing. We entered upon Ruba’i bint Mu’awwidh and mentioned that to her. She said: “the Messenger of Allah (SallaAllahu alaihi Wa Sallam) entered upon me on the morning of my wedding, and there were two girls with me who were singing and mentioning the qualities of my forefathers who were killed on the day of Badr. One of the thing they were saying was: “Among us there is a Prophet who knows what will happen tomorrow.” He (Prophet Salla Allahu alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Do not say this, for no one knows what will happen tomorrow except Allah” (Sahih),

Reference: Sunan Ibn Majah 1897 Arabic-English (Darussalam Publishers, Saudi Arabia)


From this Hadith, we can see that, Sahaba used to commemorate the passing away of their ancestors!. They used to get together and sing in reverence to the Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him)  and Martyrs.

 Misguided sects who claim to follow Islam or to be the followers of Quran and Hadith, but they don’t know anything from Quran and Hadith in a good condition. Their version of Islam is a confusion and disorder!. It is a strayed sect , probably a new religion that emerged in 18th century and closely resembles the work of Khawarij!

Welcome to true Ottoman (Hanafi-Suf Naqshbandi) Madhab following Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah. Say bye to the religion of liars and ignorant)!.

Enter in Islam completely and do not follow the foot step of Satan! (Quran 2:208)


Sunan Abu Dawood 4278 Narrated AbuHurayrah (RA): The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Allah will raise for this community at the end of every hundred years the one who will renovate its religion for it.

Muslims have been conducting Urs for past 1400 years and nearly 12 Mujaddid came after Salaf, so did any Mujaddid ruled this acts as Shirk and Bidha or grave worship?
I am asking those who claim, they have the understanding of Islam, show us evidences from the greatest scholars of Ahlu Sunnah from the era of Khilafa making Fatwa against Urs!, if you cannot do that, then you are preaching falsehood against Sunnis and Sufis and you are disbelieving in parts of the religion of Allah. Your arguments and faith are in vain!

So you have only one option, to accept Ahlu Sunna Wal jamah (the creed of Ottoman Hanafi Sufi Ways) and follow the main body and their way. The other options are misguidance and error!
