Giyarwee and Urs : the Facts

Khattam is the Ithale Thawab for one's relatives.

Giyarwee is specific to the Ithale Thawab of the leader of Saints Hadrat Gauth ul 'Azam Radi Allahu anhu and Urs is the Ithale Thawab for any other saint and friend of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. The legitimacy of these practices is similar to the legitimacy of Khattam but there is one extra question that arises here: Ithale Thawab means to transfer blessings, but why do we need to transfer blessings and virtue to notable saints of Allah especially Gauth ul-'Azam? They are people whose entire lives were devoted to the work of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. Why do they require us to present gifts of virtue to them?
It is not them who require this virtue and blessings but it is us who are in need of establishing a connection with them. Hadrat Ibn Masud Radi Allahu anhu relates that a man came to the Noble Prophet (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam) Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam and asked: "O Messenger of Allah! What would you say about a person who loves (certain) people but does not share their period? He Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam replied, "A person will be with those he loves." [Bukhari and Muslim]

So by sending this gift of blessing to Hadrat Gauth ul-'Azam Radi Allahu anhu and other friends of Allah  Subhana Wa Taala , we are showing love and affection for them. And on the Day of Judgment when our association with these people will be established through our gifts to them, we will be counted within their lines. As the Messenger Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam said, "A person will be with those who he loves."

Conclusion

Dear readers it is quite clear from this lengthy discussion that Khattam, Giyarwee and Urs are far from being innovations in Islam.

It is clear that every aspect of these practices has a firm base in the Holy Qur'an and the traditions of the blessed Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam. There may be counter-arguments against the Ahadith I have presented but the fundamental point still remains that these practices cannot be innovations or Bidah as they have roots in the traditions of our beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam. I am by no means suggesting that we do not have answers for counter-questions but it simply means that the argument will be much longer but with the same conclusion. It is just a game played by those who are intent on proving the illegitimacy of such practices. We can only pray that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala guides these people towards the truth, Amin.

Finally, I would like you ponder over the following hadith of the Messenger of Allah and notice that even though Khattam was not found in its modern form in the time of the Messenger  (sal-lal-lahu alai hi wa sallam), every aspect of it is virtuous and a blessing. This is exactly what the Messenger Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam was implying when he said, "Whoever introduces in Islam a good measure will have his reward for it and also a reward for those who act upon it without reducing anything from their reward." [Muslim]
