Seed of Deoband was laid because of Shia trouble
Hazrat Molana Qasim Nanotwi (r.a) came to Deoband as a child because there was sunni-shia trouble in Nanotvi. So his father Hazrat Sheikh Asad (r.a) sent the young Qasim to Deoband where he thought he might be safe.
Hazrat Shah Abdul-Aziz Dehlawi (r.a).
When Hazrat Shah Abdul-Aziz (r.a) wrote, “Tohfa Ithna Ashariyyah”In spite of being renowned in Delhi as the great Muhaddith who never gave anyone any trouble, he could NOT put his own real name to the book. Because of the fear of the backlash from Shias.
Hazrat Molana Azam Tariq Sahib Shaheed (r.a).
The night before Hazrat Molana Azam Tariq Sahib Shaheed(r.a) was martyred, one senior Aalim of Pakistan saw Hazrat Aaishah (R.A) in his dream, and she was in Pakistan. In his dream he asked her what had brought her to Pakistan. She replied, “I have come to receive my son Azam Tariq.”The following day, he was martyred- by the Shias, the enemies of Hazrat Aaishah (R.A). I was told this by a colleague, an Aalim from Pakistan.
Many of Pakistan's senior ulema have been martyred by Shias especially EVERY leader of Sipahe Sahaabah:
- Hazrat Molana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi Shaheed (r.a), founder of SipaheSahaabah.
- Hazrat Molana Eesaarul Qasmi Shaheed (r.a),
- Hazrat Molana Ziaur-Rahman Farooq Shaheed (r.a),
- Hazrat Molana Azam Tariq Shaheed (r.a),
- Hazrat Molana Ali Sher Haideri shaheed (r.a),
Many others including,
- Hazrat Molana Yusuf Ludhianvi Shaheed (r.a),
- Hazrat Mufti Shamzaiee Shaheed (r.a).
May Allah grant them all a lofty rank in Jannatul-Firdaus. May Allah honour us with a similar khaatimah... Aameen.
مَن سأَل الشَّهادَةَ بصِدقٍ ، بلَّغه اللهُ مَنازِلَ الشُّهَداءِ ، وإنْ مات على فِراشِه
صحيح مسلم - صحيح ابن حبان- نسائي-ابن ماجه الراوي: سهل بن حنيف
"Anyone who asks Allah for shahaadat sincerely, Allah will elevate him to the rank of martyrs even though he may diein his bed."(Reported in Saheeh Muslim, Saheeh Ibn Habbaan, Ibn Maajah,and Nisaaiee.)
As a poet said,
لعل الله يرزقني صلاحااحب الصالحين ولست منهم
"I love the pious, although I am not from them, So that Allah will grant me piety"
