حضرت مہدی ؑنے جواب دیا کہ ہم نے کتاب اللہ کا مذہب پیش کردیا ہے جس کسی کو کتاب اللہ مومن کہتی ہے ہم بھی مومن کہتے ہیں اور جس کسی کو کتاب اللہ کافر کہتی ہے اس کو ہم بھی کافر کہتے ہیں۔ اپنی طرف سے کوئی حکم نہیں لگاتے ہیں۔ہم کتاب اللہ کے تابع ہیں ۔ خدا کی کتاب پیش کر دیۓ ہیں اور مخلوق کو توحید و عبادت کی طرف بلاتے ہیں اور ہم بارگاہِ رب العزت کی طرف سے اسی کام پر مامور ہیں
Hazrath Mahdi Alaihis Salaam Ne Jawab Diya Ke Humney Kitabullah Ka Mazhab Pesh Kardiya Hai, Jiss Kisee Ko Kitabullah Momin Kehti Hai Hum Bhi Momin Kehte Hai’n Aur Jiss Kisee Ko Kitabullah Kafir Kehti Hai Hum Bhi Kafir Kehte Hai’n. Apni Taraf Se Koi Hukm Nahi’n Lagate Hai’n. Hum Kitabullah Ke Ta’bey Hai’n. Khuda Ki Kitaab Pesh Kardiye Hai’n Aur Makhluq Ko Tauheed Wa Ibadat Ki Taraf Bulatey Hai’n Aur Hum Bar’gah Rabbul Izzat Ki Taraf Se Isee Kaam Par Mamoor Hai’n.

حضرت مہدی علیہ السلام نے فرمایا کہ جو شخص میری نقل بیان کرے اگر وہ حق تعالٰی کے کلام کے موافق ہے تو وہ نقل درست ہے۔اگر اللہ کے کلام کے موافق نہیں ہے تو وہ میری نقل نہیں ہے یا (سمجھ لیا جاۓ کہ) سننےکے وقت ناقل کا دل حاضر نہ رہا ہوگا جس کی وجہ سہو ہوگیا ہے۔
Hazrat Mahdi Alaihis Salam Ne Farmaya Ke Jo Shakhs Meri Naql Bayan Karey, Agar Wo Haqq Ta’ala Ke Ka’laam Ke Muwafiq Hai To Woh Naql Durust Hai. Agar Allah Ke Ka’laam Ke Muwafiq Nahi’n Hai To Woh Meri Naql Nahi’n Hai Ya (Samajh Liya Jaye) Sun-Nay Ke Waqt Naqil Ka Dil Hazir Na Raha Hoga Jis Ki Wajah Se Sahu Hogaya Hai.
Imam MahdiAS has said. “If a person reports a naql (parable) and it is in conformity to the word of Allah, it is my naql. It is not my naql if it does not conform to the word of Allah. Or (you may understand that) the person reporting was not attentive because of which the error has occurred.”
حضرت رسول اللہ ؐنے فرمایا۔ " میرے بعد تمہارے لۓ احادیث میں کثرت ہو جاۓ گی۔ان احادیث کو اللہ تعالیٰ کی کتاب سے ملاؤ اگر موافق پاؤ تو قبول کرو ورنہ چھوڑ دو۔
idhā jāʾakum al-ḥadīth fa’riḍūhu ʿalā kitāb Allāh wa in wāfaqahu fa-khudhūhu wa in khālafahu fadaʿūhu.
Prophet states, “When a ḥadīth comes to you from me, compare it to the Book of God, and if it agrees with it then accept it, and if it differs with it, leave it”
Drawing Conclusion / نتیجہ
مندرجہ بلیٰ عبارات سے جو بات واضح ہوتی ہے وہ یہ کہ کسی بھی بات کی قبولیت کی واحد شرط کتاب اللہ (قران مجید) سے موافقت ہے
اسی لیے ہمارا کتاب اللہ کو مکمل طور پر جاننا سمجھنا بے حد ضروری ہے
Mundarja-e-bala ibarat say jo baat wazeh hoti hai wo ye k kisi bhi baat ki qubooliyat ki wahid shart Kiabtullah (Quran-e-Majeed) say muwafiqat hai. Isi liye humara Kitabullah ko mukammil taur par jaanna samajhna be-hadd zaroori hai.

Religion of the Book of God (Kitabullah ka Mazhab)
Q: What does Kitabullah say about Deen?
A: The Deen ordained by God is Islam. Allah swt Himself has made the Deen free of any difficulty. And there's no compulsion in Deen. The Deen that was decreed by God on all previous Prophets and messengers is the same Deen the Noble Prophet and Messenger IbrahimAS exemplarily practiced and therefore the last Prophet and all his followers are commanded to emulate IbrahimAS in this very Deen. Any other Deen besides Islam is unacceptable to God.
