The movement emphasizes personal devotion to Allah and the Muslim prophet Muhammad and a synthesis of Sharia with Sufi practices such as veneration of saints. The Barelvi movement is named after the town of Bareilly, India , from where this movement was originated. To its followers, the Barelvi movement is the Ahle Sunnat wal Jama'at , or "People of the traditions [of Muhammad ] and the community," and they refer to themselves as Sunnis.
The Barelvi movement became known as Barelvi due to their leader Ahmad Raza Khan     who established Islamic schools in with the Manzar-e-Islam.
Although the Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama was founded in to reconcile South Asia 's Muslim sectarian differences, the Barelvis eventually withdrew their support from the council and criticized its efforts as heretical, radical, and counter to the Islamic values. In contrast with the Deobandi movement, the Barelvis showed unequivocal support for the Movement for Pakistan. Like ulema of the Deobandi and Ahl-i Hadith movements, Barelvi ulema have advocated application of sharia law across the country.
As a reaction to the anti-Islam film Innocence of Muslims , a conglomerate of forty Barelvi parties called for a boycott of Western goods, while at the same time condemning violence which had taken place in protest against the film. The majority of people in the United Kingdom of Pakistani and Kashmir origin are descended from immigrants from Barelvi-majority areas.
Like other Sunni Muslims, Barelvis base their beliefs on the Quran and Sunnah and believe in monotheism and the prophethood of Muhammad. Although Barelvis may follow any one of the Ashari and Maturidi schools of Islamic theology and one of the Hanafi , Maliki , Shafi'i and Hanbali madhhabs of fiqh in addition to optionally choosing from one of the Sunni Sufi orders like the Qadiri , Chishti or the Suhrawardi tariqas.
A central doctrine of the Barelvi movement is that Muhammad is both human and light. According to this doctrine the primordial reality of Muhammad existed before creation and that God created creation for the sake of Muhammad.
Sahl al-Tustari the famous 9th century Sufi commentator of the Quran, describes the creation of the primordial light of Muhammad in his tafsir. Another central doctrine of the Barelvi movement is that Muhammad can witness and be present in multiple places as the same time Hazir-o-Nazir.
A fundamental belief of the Barelvi movement is that Muhammad has knowledge of the unseen. Barelvis do not see this word as referring to unlettered or illiterate, but rather see it as referring to one who is not taught by man.
The consequence of this belief is that Muhammad therefore learns directly from God and his knowledge is universal in nature and encompasses the seen and unseen realms. This belief predates the Barelvi movement and can be found in Sufi books such as Rumi's Fihi Ma Fihi  in which he states:. Rumi , Fihi Ma Fihi , translated by A. Arberry, p. Sunni Muslims of the Barelvi movement believe that Muhammad's knowledge is attained from God ata'e and is not equal to God's knowledge.
A fundamental belief of those within the Barelvi movement is that Muhammad helps in this life and in the afterlife. The help received from Muhammad is therefore considered God's help. They also believe that in the afterlife, on the day of judgement, Muhammad will intercede on the behalf of his followers and God will forgive his nation of sins and allow them to enter Jannah paradise. The belief of Muhammad providing support and help is a common theme within classical Sufi literature.
Tasawwuf or Sufism is a fundamental aspect of the Barelvi movement. Traditional Sufi practices such as devotion to Muhammad and the veneration of the Awliya Allah remains an integral part of the movement. Having formed as a reaction against the reformist Deobandi movement, relations between the two groups have often been strained. Ahmad Raza Khan, the founder of Barelvis, went as far as to declare all Deobandis infidels and apostates.
Although conflict has occurred, relations with other Muslim movements in South Asia have not always been hostile. In mid, leaders of both the Barelvi and Ahl al-Hadith movements in the Kashmir Valley denied that there was any animosity between the two sects in the region, saying that Kashmiris can ill afford sectarian strife after two decades of bloodbath.
Upadhyay and Rajesh T. The Barelvi movement has taken a stance against the various Taliban movements in South Asia, organising rallies and protests in India and Pakistan, condemning what they perceive as unjustified sectarian violence.
Terming the Taliban a product of global anti-Islam conspiracies, the leaders of SIC charged the Taliban with playing into the hands of the United States to divide Muslims and bring a bad name to Islam. A national consensus against terrorism is emerging across the country.
In another prominent Islamic scholar and mufti, or jurisconsult, of the movement, the late Sarfraz Ahmed Naeemi , issued a fatwa denouncing suicide bombings,  as well as criticizing Taliban leader Sufi Muhammad by saying he "should wear bangles if he is hiding like a woman".
Naeemi added: "Those who commit suicide attacks for attaining paradise will go to hell, as they kill many innocent people". Naeemi himself was killed by a suicide bomber. Analysts and journalists have produced conflicting opinions about the underlying nature of the Barelvi movement, with some describing the group as moderate and peaceful,  while others describe it as being affected by intolerance and radicalism in ways similar to other Islamic movements in the region.
In the s and s, sporadic violence resulted from disputes between the Barelvi and Deobandi movements over control of Pakistani mosques,  with the conflict coming to a head in May when sectarian riots broke out after the assassination of Sunni Tehreek leader Saleem Qadri. On 4 January , the governor of Punjab , Salmaan Taseer , was assassinated by a member of the Barelvi group Dawat-e-Islami , Mumtaz Qadri , due to Taseer's opposition to the blasphemy law.

The Aqeedah Of Barelvi Deviant Sect Of Islam
Similar Answers. The Bareilawis are an extreme Sufi sect that appeared in the Indo-Pakistani subcontinent, in the city of Bareilly, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh during the days of British colonialism. The basic principles of their misguided, deviant teachings are based on exaggeration about the Prophet blessings and peace of Allah be upon him and the members of his household, exaggeration about the righteous, enmity towards Ahl as-Sunnah, and diverting the people away from jihad for the sake of Allah. He was one of the misguided extremists. So he does whatever he wants, he gives whatever he wants to whoever he wants, he takes whatever he wants, and there is no one in the universe who can alter his rule.
