Distortion in the Urdu translation of Ash-Shifa by Qadhi Ayadh

Imam of Ahle Sunnah Qadhi Ayadh has recorded the following account in his famed work Ash-Shifa:

 وروي ابن قانع القاضي عن ابي الحمراء قال قال رسول اللہ صلي اللہ عليھ وسلم لما اسري لي الي السماء اذا العرش مکتوب لا إله إلا الله ، محمد رسول الله ، أيدته بعلي

 “Prophet (s) said: ‘When I went on Mirage I saw on the Pillars of Arsh an inscription, which I read and understood as “There is no God but Allah, Muhamad is the Messenger of Allah, I have supported him with Ali ”’.
Ash-Shifa, English translation by Aisha Abdarrahman Bewley (Madinah Press Garnada, Spain), page 89

 

 Tragically we observe that the enemies of Ahlulbayt (as) could not absorb this, and deemed it more apt to remove the name of Ali (as) altogether and replace it with other wordings. Here we present scanned image from the Urdu translation of Qadhi Ayadh’s Ash-Shifa, translated by Mufti Ghulam Moinuddin Naeemi (Maktabah Aala Hazrat, Darbaar Market, Lahore):

“Prophet (s) said: ‘When I went on Mirage I saw on the Pillars of Arsh an inscription, which I read and understood as “There is no God but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah”I was supported in this manner with honor through elevation’.
Ash-Shifa, Urdu translation by Mufti Ghulam Moinuddin Naeemi (Maktabah Aala Hazrat, Darbaar Market, Lahore), page 151
