Yalash?

The allegation of the non Ahmadi Muslims is against the revelation of Ahmadas where he states:

” Yalash is the name of God Himself.”

Ahmadas has himself explained its meaning. He states:

” This is a revealed new word which is not found in this form in the Qur’an or hadith or in any dictionary. It has been disclosed to me that it connotes ya la sharik [O You without an associate]. The purpose of this revelation is that no human being possesses a quality or a name or performs any action which is peculiar to Him and is not to be found in any other. That is why the qualities and the miracles of every Prophet are displayed, by way of reflection, by some of his selected followers who have a perfect spiritual relationship with him, lest the ignorant ones should hold a Prophet to be without an associate because of some uniqueness. To call a Prophet Yalash would amount to utter disbelief.” (Tohfah Golarhviyyah, Page 69 Footnote, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 17, Pages 203-204 Footnote)

It is not true that Allah can only be called by 99 names. One can call Allah by many of his names. It is true that according to the Qur’an Allah has 99 attributes, however He is not limited to those names alone. Since the Qur’an has 99 attributes of Allah, it doess not mean there are 99 names for God. It only shows that Allah has 99 attributes which are present in the Qur’an.. During the death of the Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw, he called Allah Rafiq. Al-Rafiq is not one of the 99 names from the Qur’an. According to the non Ahmadi interpretation of those who raise this allegation agaisnt Ahmadas, it would mean that the Prophet Muhammadsaw believed in two gods, God forbid.

 

Here are some ahadith which mention this:

حَدَّثَنَا بِشْرُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ، قَالَ يُونُسُ قَالَ الزُّهْرِيُّ أَخْبَرَنِي سَعِيدُ بْنُ الْمُسَيَّبِ، فِي رِجَالٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْعِلْمِ أَنَّ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْ كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ وَهْوَ صَحِيحٌ ‏”‏ إِنَّهُ لَمْ يُقْبَضْ نَبِيٌّ حَتَّى يَرَى مَقْعَدَهُ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ، ثُمَّ يُخَيَّرَ ‏”‏‏.‏ فَلَمَّا نَزَلَ بِهِ وَرَأْسُهُ عَلَى فَخِذِي غُشِيَ عَلَيْهِ، ثُمَّ أَفَاقَ، فَأَشْخَصَ بَصَرَهُ إِلَى سَقْفِ الْبَيْتِ ثُمَّ قَالَ ‏”‏ اللَّهُمَّ الرَّفِيقَ الأَعْلَى ‏”‏‏.‏ فَقُلْتُ إِذًا لاَ يَخْتَارُنَا‏.‏ وَعَرَفْتُ أَنَّهُ الْحَدِيثُ الَّذِي كَانَ يُحَدِّثُنَا وَهْوَ صَحِيحٌ قَالَتْ فَكَانَتْ آخِرَ كَلِمَةٍ تَكَلَّمَ بِهَا ‏”‏ اللَّهُمَّ الرَّفِيقَ الأَعْلَى ‏”‏‏.‏

 

Narrated `Aisha:

When the Prophet (ﷺ) was healthy, he used to say, “No soul of a prophet is captured till he is shown his place in Paradise and then he is given the option.” When death approached him while his head was on my thigh, he became unconscious and then recovered his consciousness. He then looked at the ceiling of the house and said, “O Allah! (with) the highest companions.” I said (to myself), “Hence, he is not going to choose us.” Then I realized that what he had said was the application of the narration which he used to mention to us when he was healthy. The last word he spoke was, “O Allah! (with) the highest companion. (Sahih al Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Hadith #740)

 

This is narrated many more times throughout the books of ahadith. Furthermore, Allah States in the Qur’an:

قُلِ ادْعُوا اللَّهَ أَوِ ادْعُوا الرَّحْمَٰنَ ۖ أَيًّا مَا تَدْعُوا فَلَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ ۚ وَلَا تَجْهَرْ بِصَلَاتِكَ وَلَا تُخَافِتْ بِهَا وَابْتَغِ بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ سَبِيلًا {111}

Say, ‘Call upon Allah or call upon Rahman; by whichever name you call Him, His are the most beautiful names.’ And utter not thy prayer aloud, nor utter it too low, but seek a way between. (Chapter 17 Verse 111)

This shows that all beautiful names belong to Allah, and He is not restricted to only 99 attributes as the ahadith of the Prophet also support.

Another beautiful prayer of the Holy Prophetsaw further proves our view to be the real view of Allah and His Prophetsaw. The Holy Prophetsaw taught as a prayer for distress which is as follows:

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَا أَصَابَ أَحَدًا قَطُّ هَمٌّ وَلَا حَزَنٌ فَقَالَ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي عَبْدُكَ وَابْنُ عَبْدِكَ وَابْنُ أَمَتِكَ نَاصِيَتِي بِيَدِكَ مَاضٍ فِيَّ حُكْمُكَ عَدْلٌ فِيَّ قَضَاؤُكَ أَسْأَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ سَمَّيْتَ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ أَوْ عَلَّمْتَهُ أَحَدًا مِنْ خَلْقِكَ أَوْ أَنْزَلْتَهُ فِي كِتَابِكَ أَوْ اسْتَأْثَرْتَ بِهِ فِي عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ الْقُرْآنَ رَبِيعَ قَلْبِي وَنُورَ صَدْرِي وَجِلَاءَ حُزْنِي وَذَهَابَ هَمِّي إِلَّا أَذْهَبَ اللَّهُ هَمَّهُ وَحُزْنَهُ وَأَبْدَلَهُ مَكَانَهُ فَرَجًا قَالَ فَقِيلَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَلَا نَتَعَلَّمُهَا فَقَالَ بَلَى يَنْبَغِي لِمَنْ سَمِعَهَا أَنْ يَتَعَلَّمَهَا

Ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, If any Muslim is afflicted with distress and makes this supplication, then his supplication will be answered: O Allah, I am your servant, the son of your servant, the son of your maidservant. My forelock is in your hand, your command concerning me prevails, and your decision concerning me is just. I call upon you by every one of the beautiful names with which you have described yourself, or which you have revealed in your Book, or you have taught to anyone of your creatures, or which you have chosen to keep in the knowledge of the unseen with you, to make the Quran the delight of my heart, the light of my chest, and to remove my sadness and dispel my anxiety.The Prophet said, “If  he says this, Allah will remove his affliction and replace it with joy and happiness.They said, “O Messenger of Allah, should we not learn it?” The Prophet said,Yes, whoever hears it should know it.(Musnad Ahmad, Hadith #3704)

This hadith is clear. The Holy Prophetsaw makes it clear that there are names that are revealed in the Book, and others which exist as well that are revealed to the servants of Allah and some which are kept in the knowledge of the unseen. The scholars of the non Ahmadi Muslims themselves quote this hadith, but sadly become hypocritcal to make allegations against the Promised Messiahas.
