Dr. Masooduddin Usmani Exposes Blasphemous Barelvis-Deobandis.
However when someone like Hamid Mir and Jang Group "Insert" Spirituality and Religion into cut-throat and dog eats dog Pakistani Politics then he or anybody else must be taken to task and set the record straight that "Politics and Religion" are two separate entities and mustn't be mixed to avoid confusion. Jang Group has again inserted Religion in Imran Khan's Rally in the garb of "Sufism" therefore one must take a quick look in the holes of the claim of Hamid Mir who mentioned Ali Hujwiri aka Data Ganj Bakhsh for Imran Khan to grab "Quick Barelvi Support/Votes", please do keep in mind that Data Ganj Bakhsh was a Sunni Muslim and probably follower of Hanafi Fiqh and also keep in mind that Data after his death was buried in Shrine (Plastered Grave) and do keep in mind while reading some Facts about Data Ganj Bakhsh's Alleged "Services for Spreading Islam (read Sufism)

Allama Iqbal Meeting with Data Ganj Bakhsh After Data Ganj Bakhsh's Death in 1919 (after 800 years of Data's Alleged Death)
How Ali Hajweri aka Data Ganj Bakhsh "ended up" in Lahore
Brazen Blasphmey were committed by Abul Hassan Ali Ibn Usman al-Jullabi al-Hajvery al-Ghaznawi (ابوالحسن علی بن عثمان الجلابی الهجویری الغزنوی) or Abul Hassan Ali Hajvery (sometimes spelled Hujwiri, Hajweri, Hajveri), also known as Daata Ganj Bakhsh (Persian/Punjabi: (داتا گنج بخش) (which means the master who bestows treasures) or Daata Sahib (Persian/Urdu: (داتا صاحب), from a book Emaan-e-Khalis by Late. Captain (R). Dr Masooduddin Usmani http://www.emanekhalis.com/emanqist1/emangist.htm
If we cannot construct anything on the grave then how can Shrines exist (Ali Hajweri aka Data Ganj Bakhsh included), and when there is no existence of Shrines, where is the question of visiting it.
"QUOTE"Clarification of Ahnaf's use of words:
Haram: This is something that is forbidden by Quran, or Hadith Mutawatir or Mashur, and his author is a sinner by doing this action.
Makruh Tahrimi: That is something that is like Haram in punishment, meaning his author is a sinner by doing this action. The only difference is that this forbiddance is established by Khabar Ahad. So for Ahnaf, wearing gold and silk for men, doing Nikah of Tahlil (for the purpose of making woman legal to the first husband) are Makruh Tahrimi as they are forbidden by Khabar Ahad and not by Quran or Hadith Mutawatir.
Makruh Tanzihi: This is the forbiddance whose author is not sinful, yet leaving this action will give reward, like eating and drinking standing or other actions.
When Ahnaf mention the word Makruh in an absolute way, then mean it is Makruh Tahrimi. Ibn Abidin said in his "Radul Muhtar", Matlab fil Karahiyah At-Tahrimiyah wa Tanzihiyah:
"The Makruh in this chapter is of two types, one of them is the Makruh Tahrimi and it is the one intended when mentioned in an absolute way"
And this has also been mentioned in "Fathul Qadir" of ibnul Humam v 2 p 114.
So whenever Ahnaf say that for Imam Abu Hanifah, a matter is Makruh, it will mean it is Makruh Tahrimi, unless it is specified that it is Makruh Tanzihi. And also we see than many scholars .
Muhammad ibnul Hasan Ash-Shaybani wrote in his "Kitab ul Athar", Bab Tasneemul Qubur wa Tajsisuha:
"And we do not see that one should add more (mud on the grave) than what came from it, and we consider it Makruh to do Tajsis (plastering of the grave) or to coat it with clay or that a mosque should be established upon it or that something should be written on it, and using baked bricks to built on it or to be put inside the grave is Makruh, and we do not see any wrong in sprinkling water on it, and this is the saying of Abu Hanifah (rah)"
Mahmud Al-Alusi said in his "Ruh ul Ma'ani" v 15 p 238:
"There is consensus on the fact that among the greatest forbidden matters and cause of Shirk is to pray close to them (graves) and to take them as places of worship (mosques), or to build upon it, and it is obligatory to rush to destroy them (mosques built on graves) and to desDhirar,troy the domes that are on the graves, as they are worse than the mosque of because they are built in disobedience to the Prophet (saw), and it is obligatory to remove the torches and lamps that are on graves, and it is not permissible to make a Waqf of them and vows upon them"
Mahmud Al-Alusi said about the story of Kahf and people who base on it to justify building on graves of saints:
"And people have taken this as a proof for permitting building on graves of saints and turning them into mosques and praying in them�This saying is pure falsehood, corruption and evil.

Qadhi Khan said his "Fatawa" v 1 p 93:

Siraj ud Din said in his "Fatawa Sirajiyah" p 24:
"It is Makruh to build on graves"

As-Sarkhasi wrote in his "Mabsut" v 2 p 62:
"He forbade doing Tajsis of graves"
Qadhi Ibrahim Al-Hanafi said in his "Majalis ul Abrar" p 129:
"And the domes built on graves, it is obligatory to destroy them because they have been built in disobedience and opposition to the Messenger (saw) , and every construction that is built in disobedience and opposition to the Messenger (saw) deserves more to be destroyed than the mosque of Dhirar."
Ala ud Din As-Samarqandi said as mentioned in "Tuhfatul Fuqaha" v 1 p 400:
"The Sunnah concerning the grave is that it should be convex, not in a square form, it should not be coated with clay, nor plastered, and Abu Hanifah consider it Makruh to build on graves"
Hasan Ash-Shurunbulali wrote in "Nur ul Idah" p 153:
"And baked bricks and wood is Makruh�and it is forbidden (Haram) to built on graves for beatification and Makruh if it is for solidification after burial"
