In war there is a code that the army repeats all day. This is a kind of war slogan or guideline. Hazrat Khalid bin Walid with his army of three thousand came to clash with Musailama the Pretender Kazzab. The Companions asked Khalid what is our code of the day? He replied it is: Muhammad and Ya Rasul Allah.
The war started. All day the Companions went on crying Muhammad and Ya Rasul Allah and kept fighting the rebels, fighting against the violators of the doctrine of khatm-e-nabuwwat (finality of the Prophet PBUH) and against the rebels of Islam. Both sides raised the cry of Allahu Akbar, which scared the Companions because they did not want to kill the believers in Oneness of Allah.
Hazrat Khalid was an intelligent man he took the flag and got on top of a hill and turned his face in the direction of Madina and cried Ya Rasul Allah, which immediately gave strength to the army of Islam and they put an end to the rebels.
This tells us that Khalid and the Companions had come to put an end to the rebels by defending the idea of khatm-e-nabuwwat. The identity of the rebel is that he is insults the Nabuwwat (prophethood) And those who fight the rebels can be identified by the slogan of the Prophet PBUH on their tongues. But no one can become a soldier of Nabuwwat by holding conferences. If you are the true soldier then give voice to the cry of Ya Muhammad PBUH. Your ancestors had paved the way for the Qadianis. Deobandi leader Qasim Nanotwi in his book Tahzir al-Naas had stated that even if someone came (and claimed prophethood) after the Prophet he would not affect the Finality of the Prophet PBUH.
On this Mirza Ghulam Ahmad jumped up and said I have come! And then the world saw that on the floor of the National Assembly of Pakistan when the leader of the Qadianis Mirza Nasir Ahmad took out Nanotwi’s Tahzir al-Naas, the rebel Muslims (Deobandis) were greatly shocked and surprised and did not know how to answer the leader of the Qadianis.
May Allah bless Shah Ahmad Noorani got up and said O Mirza, sit down. On the book by Nanotwi, our Imam Ahmad Raza Khan Barelvi had given his fatwa of apostatisation (kufr) a hundred years ago. Keep this in mind: the man who defends the Prophethood will always be true and the man who insults the Prophethood will always be false.
The man who fights the rebel of Prophethood will always cry Ya Rasul Allah which will be according to the thinking of the Companions. And remember that there will always be dispute between the rebels and the defenders, between those who say Ya Rasul Allah and those who don’t say it. They will never unite.
In the times of Caliph Siddiq Akbar a war was waged against the rebels. During the time of Caliph Usman the rebels were so strong they martyred him. Hazrat Ali also faced the rebellion of these people. The rebels became Kharijees and started killing people and started calling Ali as Kafir. Who were these Kharijees? Their origin goes far back.
In Bukhari Shareef on page 472 it is narrated that once the spoils of war were brought before the Prophet PBUH. The Prophet PBUH distributed the booty but one man stepped forward looking strange: his eyes were sunken, cheeks puffed up and forehead extremely narrow wearing a shalwar that hung at half calf. Why did Bukhari describe the appearance of this man? Others like Abu Jahal and Abu Lahab were never described like this. This was the kharijee, his shalwar tucked up above his ankles.
