In any conflict between the practices and statements of the Auliya centuries after Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and the Shariah, the way is not to present arguments in favour of the view which is in conflict with the well-known and well-established decrees of the Shariah. The way is to refer to the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. If the practices of the Auliya are in conflict with these primary sources of Islam, they shall be set aside. The Shariah cannot be set aside. The pronouncements of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) cannot be set aside for the sake of upholding the practices of others regardless of their rank, piety and knowledge. And, of vital importance is the fact that to understand the Qur’aan and Sunnah correctly, there is no alternative other than the Aimmah-e-Mujtahideen whose word is final and binding. These illustrious authorities have informed the Ummah that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:“I have been sent to destroy musical instruments.”

This, then terminates the discussion and clears the confusion. May Allah Ta’ala safeguard the Imaan of all Mu’mineen and save us from the snares and ploys of Iblees, and from the evil which lurks in our nafs.
