Your religion is your friend’s religion!

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa alaa Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim.

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “A man is upon the religion of his best friend, so let one of you look at whom he befriend” Sunan Abu Dawud 4833

You are a “living proof” for this Hadith. Your religion indeed your friend’s religion, though you may be titled as “Muslim/Sufi/Sunni etc!

AND YOU ARE WITH THOSE WHOM YOU LOVE:

Sahih Bukhari Book 89 Hadith 267  Narrated Anas bin Malik: Apostle.” The Prophet said, “You will be with the one whom you love.”  

TRUE BELIEVERS ARE WITH PROPHETS, SIDDIQIN AND SALIHEEN:

It is said that here and hereafter , true believers will remain with the same Jamah (the saved fellowship/firqathu najiya)

Quran 4:69 All who obey Allah and the messenger are in the company of those on whom is the Grace of Allah,- of the prophets (who teach), the sincere (lovers of Truth), the witnesses (who testify), and the Righteous (who do good): Ah! what a beautiful fellowship!

There is nothing called “your egoistic Jamath in this world and expect the jamath of Prophets and Righteous’s  in the next world!

True Believers May be with Prophets and Companions and Saints (Awliya Allah) in Dreams  (will have fellowship in this world and hereafter)):

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: I heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “Whoever sees me in a dream will see me when he is awake; the Shaytaan cannot take my shape.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6592; Muslim, 2266). 

The True Believers will be Lovers and Followers of Ahlul Bayth and Awliya Allah (the main body of Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah):

On the authority of Tameem ibn Aus ad-Daree (may Allah be pleased with him): The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “The deen (religion) is sincerity,” We said “To whom?” He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.” [Muslim]

Tabarani and Haakim narrated from Ibn Abbaas that the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam  said
‘O Children of Abdul Muttalib, I asked Allah three things for you; that He keeps your hearts steadfast (upon Islam); that He teaches the Deen to your ignorant and illiterate and guides your astray, and that He make you kind, generous and affectionate to one another. So if a man prays, standing between the Rukn and Maqaam, and fasts but dies with malice for the Household of Muhammad he has entered Hell.’ [Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 11, Page 142, Hadith 11412 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 3, Page 162, Hadith 4712]

Ibn Adee in Al-Kaleel narrates from Abu Sa’eed Khudri Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu that the  Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said ‘He is a hypocrite who has malice for our Ahl al-Bait.’ [Jawahir al-Aqdain, Vol. 2, Page 25]

They Will not Kharijis (Rebellious Sinners/Protestant Muslims):

Quran 4:59 O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.

Sahih Bukhari, Book 89.Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet said, “If somebody sees his Muslim ruler doing something he disapproves of, he should be patient, for whoever becomes separate from the Muslim group even for a span and then dies, he will die as those who died in the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance (as rebellious sinners). (See Hadith No. 176 and 177)

They Will not be like Shia:

They don’t love some and hate some other. They don’t give superior to some and treat others inferior!

2:285 (Quran) The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in Allah, His angels, His books, and His messengers. “We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His messengers.” And they say: “We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys.”

Today, We have Shia type Sunnis and Sufis. They call upon the family of their Shaykh and abuse other Shaykhs and the Khalifas of their Shaykh.

Some other type of this misguided Sufis, they love some ahlul bayth and hate some other ahlul bayth.

Though they may took baya (initiation) into some Tariqah, their ego rule over them without they knowing it. They have jealousy and hatred to some shaykhs, their khalifas and some ahlul bayth, while they claim their love for ahlul bayth!

Imam Ahmad; Tirmidhi who denoted it sahih; Nisa’i and Haakim narrated it from Muttalib bin Rabee’a that the beloved Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said to Sayyiduna Abbas Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu

By Allah, Imaan (faith) will not enter the heart of a Muslim until he loves you for Allah and for my relationship.’ [Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 1, Page 342, Hadith 1780 | Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 610, Hadith 3758 | Sunan Nisa’i, Vol. 5, Page 51, Hadith 8175 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 4, Page 85, Hadith 6960]

They Are Not like Firaun (Pharaoh ):

They do not declare Kingship or Lordship!, They say we are “Rabbaniyyun”- the Devoted Servants of Allah”

Quran 3:79 It is not (possible) that a man, to whom is given the Book, and Wisdom, and the prophetic office, should say to people: “Be ye my worshippers rather than Allah’s”: on the contrary (He would say) “Be ye worshippers of Him Who is truly the Cherisher of all: For ye have taught the Book and ye have studied it earnestly.”

Tabarani in Awsat narrates from Hassan bin Ali that the (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said ‘Make the love of our Ahl al-Bait compulsory for whoever meets Allah having love for us shall enter paradise with our intercession and By He in whose Hand is my life no deed will benefit a servant except by recognizing our right.’ [Tabarani in Al-Awsat, Vol. 3, Page 122, Hadith 2251 | Al-Shifa, Vol. 2, Page 48]

 

THEY ARE NOT LIKE NIMRODS:

Quran 25:63  And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them [harshly], they say [words of] peace,

Quran 17:37 And do not walk upon the earth exultantly. Indeed, you will never tear the earth [apart], and you will never reach the mountains in height.

THEY ARE NOT LIKE QAROON:

Quran 2:3 Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them;

Allah eliminates usury (i.e. deprives usurious profits of prosperous growth) and multiplies alms gifts (i.e. increases blessings of clean wealth manifold through charity donations). And Allah does not like anyone who is ungrateful and disobedient. (Al-Baqarah 2:276)

Quran 25:43 Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?

Quran 45:23 Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?

THEY ARE NOT LIKE YAZEED:

Tabarani narrates from Ibn Abbas that the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) saidMalice for the Bani Haashim (migrants) and Ansaar is kufr (heresy) whilst malice for the Arabs is hypocrisy.’ [Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 11, Page 118, Hadith 11312]

Conclusion

Allah and His Messenger (alaihiswalathu wa salam) teaching us through Quran and Sunnah Traditions the stories of Firaun ,Qaroon, Nimrod ,Firaun,Yazeed and Kharij (Rebellious Sinners/Protestant).

It is not for just to recite and read and go!, but to know yourself to know your friends, to know your leaders.

So that you may accept what is truth, what is good and what is right, and you may reject what is falsehood, what is bad and what is wrong!

It is to self assess , to seek the correct friends and to follow the correct leaders.

So you must begin to correct your heart first, then automatically you will correct your friends, or you will choose to have right friends and will have correct leaders.

Unless you are protected by Allah , if you are not a person whom Allah with His Mercy has granted the Safety, then you have the hardship of disinfecting your own life with the sickness with in you and  that evil you are surroundd with your life. But if you are among those who are granted safety by Allah, that time the Heavenly Powers Scan and disinfect your life from the “Firauns/Qaroons/ Nimords/Firauns/Yazeeds/Kharijis etc from your heart and from your friend circles and from the leaders, with/without you directly realizing it.

And Allah Will Pour Wisdom to you about what happening in your life. That time, you will not grieve that the friend/relative forsake you/ the leader abandoned you! Because Allah is Protecting you from their fithna!

Your Lord knows their state better than you and they do not know your relationship with your Lord.
They have been in the partners in the Devil’s Work!

“So Worry not for Surely Allah is With you”

This is the understandings of those who follow the Shaykhs of the Rabbani Way.

The Ways of the Most Distinguished Saints in the Divine Presence.

2 Corinthians 6:14 New American Standard Bible
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Allah the Almighty is Good and accepts only that which is good. And verily Allah has commanded the believers to do that which He has commanded the Messengers. So the Almighty has said: “O (you) Messengers! Eat of the tayyibat [all kinds of halal (legal) foods], and perform righteous deeds.” [23:51] and the Almighty has said: “O you who believe! Eat of the lawful things that We have provided you.” [2:172]” Then he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) mentioned [the case] of a man who, having journeyed far, is dishevelled and dusty, and who spreads out his hands to the sky saying “O Lord! O Lord!,” while his food is haram (unlawful), his drink is haram, his clothing is haram, and he has been nourished with haram, so how can [his supplication] be answered? From 40 Hadith  [Muslim]

How to Find True Sufi Shaykh?

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

Hazret Shaykh Hoja Lokman Effendi (Q.S)
Hazret Shaykh Hoja Lokman Effendi (Q.S)

Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Alaa Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim.

So, today 1000s of people claim to be Shaykhs or Sufi Masters. How to find a real Shaykh of Tarbiyyah (Spritual guidance)?. How to recognize  a true spiritual master? .

The problem is people are confused or they don’t want to take hardship to find  a true Shaykh.  Instead, they are just following a person based on his popularity, or based on the number of conferences he attended or based on the number of years he lived in the company of his Shaykh, or based on the number of degree courses he completed,or based on the number of followers he has. or based on the number of Facebook likes or media publicity he has!

All of these criteria are wrong, and unaccepted in the Presence of Allah Almighty Exalted.

If you follow a person based on his popularity, he may not be a sanctified person. His followers may be ignorant. They may not know the difference of truth and falsehood/Right and wrong.

Or if you follow someone based on the number of conferences he had organized or attended then remember that conferences are organized by people of all sects with in Islam.

So if you follow a person based on his University degrees, then remember such a system was never the Sunnah (traditions) of any Prophets or their Companions and Saints of the Golden Age of Islam. Also remember , this degrees are organized by those who are not upon the Path of Sufism and are no Sanctified. So someone who find honor in Such religious study degrees and taking it as a great honorable thing in his life, then such one’s are not understood truth and false hood (Haqq and Bathil)

Quran says: “Truth had clearly distinct from False hood”

Quran 2:256 Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

Those who held most Truth Worthy Hand-Hold (those who practice baya–Oath of Allegiance-Sura Al fatah ) has only those who really believed in Allah.

Which explain in Quran 48:10 Indeed, those who pledge allegiance to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually pledging allegiance to Allah . The hand of Allah is over their hands. So he who breaks his word only breaks it to the detriment of himself. And he who fulfills that which he has promised Allah – He will give him a great reward.

Those who do not follow the tradition of Baya (oath) on an unbroken Chain (Silsila) cannot be a true Shaykh!

So true Shaykhs will have that Firm Hand hold, they are not from University Graduates. Because Prophets or Sahaba (Companions of Prophets) never established College or Universities to teach Religion of Allah!, They are not looking for this Degrees that is issued by those who did not follow the True faith and Creed!

A Person can be so many years with a Shaykh and can remain a hypocrite or an impure person. Because he may not have submitted to his Shaykh completely.

Having so many followers does not make a person a real Shaykh. When Isa (A.S) emerged among Children of Israel, there were big Rabbis  with many followers with massive knowledge of the books yet denied Isa (A.S) , so they strayed from the Path.

I do not want to say anything about Social network popularity or becoming a google Shaykh. Google Shaykh and Google followers not making any oath of allegiance.

NEED FOR A SHAYKH:

Quran 25:43 Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?

Quran 45:23 Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?

Allah says in Quran: 4:59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.*

* Disagreeing does not mean you rebel against the Shaykh/leader who is in authority over you upon oath of allegiance. Some new deviant people say it means to go and check in Quran and Hadith. Since when people started looking in Quran and Hadith?

Are they making seeing Quran as Allah and Hadith as Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam?

Such an understanding coming from wicked people.

Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam says, in Sahih Bukahri Book 89 Hadith 251  Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me.”  

PROTESTANT WAYS ARE FORBIDDEN ISLAM:

257 Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet said, “If somebody sees his Muslim ruler doing something he disapproves of, he should be patient, for whoever becomes separate from the Muslim group even for a span and then dies, he will die as those who died in the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance (as rebellious sinners). (See Hadith No. 176 and 177)  

Sahih Bukhari Book 88 Hadith 175 Narrated Abdullah: Allah’s Apostle said to us, “You will see after me, selfishness (on the part of other people) and other matters that you will disapprove of.” They asked, “What do you order us to do, O Allah’s Apostle? (under such circumstances)?” He said, “Pay their rights to them (to the rulers) and ask your right from Allah.” 

So it is clear that protestant way of salafis and wahabis and rejecting to follow Imams not allowed in Islam!

IN THIS WORLD AND HEREAFTER, THE TRUE BELIEVER WILL BE IN THE COMPANY OF THE RIGHTEOUS:

Quran 4:69 And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger – those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions.

Sahih Bukhari: Book 89 Hadith 267 Narrated Anas bin Malik: Apostle.” The Prophet said, “You will be with the one whom you love.”  

So one’s Jamath (Association) will be Same in this World and Hereafter:

THE EVIDENCE IS IN SAHIH BUKHARI: BOOK 77 HADITH 595:

Narrated Imran bin Husain: A man said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Can the people of Paradise be known (differentiated) from the people of the Fire; The Prophet replied, “Yes.” The man said, “Why do people (try to) do (good) deeds?” The Prophet said, “Everyone will do the deeds for which he has been created to do or he will do those deeds which will be made easy for him to do.” (i.e. everybody will find easy to do such deeds as will lead him to his destined place for which he has been created).   

Our Imam Khwajah Muhammad Baha’Uddin Naqshbandi Al-Owaisi Al Bukhari (radiyallahu Anhu) says:
“Our Way is Association and Goodness is in the gathering”

So many false groups in the Sufi name quote this to make evil gatherings, gatherings that is to boast ego and spread lawlessness!!!. Goodness is in the gathering. gathering under what kind of leader, gathering for what purpose?

Quran 17: 71  One day We shall call together all human beings with their (respective) Imams: those who are given their record in their right hand will read it (with pleasure), and they will not be dealt with unjustly in the least.

So those who do not have Imams/Shaykhs their Imam will be Satan and their ego!

This is why great Saints said: “Those who do not have a Shaykh, their Shaykh is Satan”

Quran 9:119  O ye who believe! Fear Allah and be with those who are true (in word and deed).

TODAY THERE ARE MANY SO CALLED MUSLIM SHAYKHS WHO DO NOT HOLD TO THE ISLAMIC WAY:

They are saying we are upon Quran and Sunnah, but they don’t have an authentic chain, they don’t have Oath of Allegiance (baya), but they mislead people into false doctrines emerged after 17th century!

So we can see below that Holding Fast to Quran and Sunnah begin with Baya (Oath of Allegiance)

Sahih Bukhari Book 92 (Holding fast to the Quran and Sunnah) Hadith 377: Narrated Abdullah bin Dinar: ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Umar wrote to ‘Abdul Malik bin Marwan, swearing allegiance to him: ‘I swear allegiance to you in that I will listen and obey what is in accordance with the Laws of Allah and the Tradition of His Apostle as much as I can.’  

REAL SHAYKH AND HIS ATTRIBUTES:

In Torah,Enjeel or in the Quran, there is no Women Shaykhs, except that a Woman scholar may teach the Women. She does not take the authority as an Imam/Shaykh/Caliph.

Today, we have so many people claiming to be Shaykhs:

1-Some claim to be Shaykhs because they lived with their Shaykh their whole life.

2-Some claiming to be shaykh based on their family lineage to a great Shaykh or an Imam.

3-Some claim to be a Shaykh, because they have been authorized to do some work for a Shaykh. (A King and a butler cannot share same status). A Judge and a Clerk in the Court has no same authority! A doormen and house owner are not the same.

4-Some claim to be a Shaykh, because his Shaykh had given him some authority in the Past, but he himself deviated from the principles of Islam and tariqah, but still mislead thousands by using the title “Shaykh/Imam”!!!

Third and fourth category are most confusing and most difficult to understand. It is this categories Satan mostly mislead and send people into astray!

Sometimes I feel, non-Muslim Shaykhs and leaders are much more honest. Look at Scottish Prime Minister and SNP  leader, Alex Salmond. He resigned from his government office as  a First Prime Minister and as a Party leader (Ameer for the country and Imaam for the followers of SNP)

I really wish, if our false Muslim Shaykhs and Muslim leaders had an atom of honesty that people of other faith has!.

Qualification of a Master:

1- Being a Scholar of the Obligation of Religion: The master must be a scholar in all religious obligations, such as the conditions of prayers, the conditions of fasting and the conditions of zakat (obligatory charity). He must be knowledgeable in the Jurisprudence of Islam and all necessary matters of Islamic Shari’ah. He must be a scholar in the Science of Tawhid (Oneness) according to the Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jama’at(Hanafi/Shafi/Maliki/Hanbali), and all the and all the other conditions of faith (iman).

2-Having  Spiritual Knowledge of God and the Seeker:To be a Knower means the master or murshid must have the knowledge of the conditions of the state of Ihsan, as mentioned by the Prophet (s) in the hadith, “Worship Allah as if you are seeing Him, and if you are not seeing Him, know that He is seeing you.” A Knower must bear witness in his heart that Allah is the Unique One in His Essence, and in His Attributes, and in His Actions. He must know about His Attributes through Vision and Taste, by experiencing self-effacement in the Divine Presence.

A person can have knowledge of the religious obligations (matters of ritual purification/prayers and outward life), but he may not know God and His Prophet alaihswalathu wa salam. It is like Driving/selling a car and do not have a relationship with the Manufacturer or Company or a flight without communication with flight control room.

How can someone guide a person to the Divine Presence , if he has not reached the Divine Presence? or At least the Presence (Quran 4:69) of Holy Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam?

3- Being Sanctified: This is the Most Important attribute of a Shaykh.

The Master must have already purified or sanctified himself as a seeker under a master of his own. He will have come to know the different stages of the ego, its illnesses and its defects. The Master must be fully aware of all the methods Satan uses to enter the heart. He must know all the ways to sanctify others and the methods to heal his followers in order to raise them up to reach the State of Perfection.

What if the Master (Shaykh) himself a slave to his own ego? , a Shaykh with hatred to other Shaykhs and their followers, Jealousy , envy, greed and anger?

How can you follow such  a Shaykh who lost the control of his own ego?, A Shaykh who claim to be a Shaykh, but he is not truly sanctified? a Shaykh who abuse other Shaykhs or other representatives and followers of his Shaykhs?

This is where Haqq and Bathil become separated. Either you follow your ego and follow such Shaykhs or you leave such Shaykhs and follow the Truth.

The Shaykh might be a good person,a nice man in the past , but he has lost his progress  and  direction in his path, he became corrupt, abusive and egoistic. And his Shaykh changed the vehicle and appointed some other person to lead the path. Then you take such ones as your leader?.

“The real faith of a person comes out when hardship and test comes on him”

So how can you follow a Shaykh, who is angry and violent towards other Shaykhs and their followers?

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him):A man said to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), “Counsel me,” so he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Do not become angry.” The man repeated [his request for counsel] several times, and [each time] he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Do not become angry.” [Al-Bukhari] Imam Nawawi 40 Hadith:

What Shari’ah and rules of tariqah you are following in the matter of taking  a person as a Shaykh?

If a seeker comes to the shaikh with perfect sincerity and truthfulness, asking to be initiated in the order, the shaikh must not hurry to initiate him, until he knows that he will remain trustworthy when he reaches the Goal. He must look at his capability. If his capability corresponds to the capability of the Close Ones (muqarrabin), then he will show him the way, as it is the way of the Trustworthy.

That way is built on killing one’s own will, and connecting and submitting oneself to the will of one’s shaikh. One must do as the Prophet (s) said, “Die before you die!” He must leave his natural will, which causes him to move according to his mind, and leave all his affairs to the will of his shaikh. The shaikh will lift him up through a path filled with difficulties, train him through worship, and guide him to a state of complete Self-Effacement. Only this will elevate him to the Divine Presence.

So How can you take someone as your Shaykh, if the Shaykh has not sacrificed his own will before Allah<Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam and his shaykh?

That is why Khwaja Ubaidullah al-Ahrar said: “Who is the shaikh? The shaikh is the one who can know, through the vision that Allah has granted him, the capability of his murid. From the day he meets him to the day of his death, he will know which state the murid will attain, and in which way he will taste, and in which way he will reach the Divine Presence. If the shaikh cannot summon that knowledge, it is forbidden (haram) for him to give the seeker initiation.”

Sometimes, people misunderstand what Khwajah Ubaidullah (Q.S) said. There are astrologers who can say  your state!, So a Shaykh who is lead by demons can also perform such miracles of understanding the state of the seeker!. So how can we find a  true Shaykh?, answer is simple: With all of the conditions mentioned here with his good conduct and model behavior!

He continued, “The shaikh must avoid the wealth of his murid. If the murid wishes to help the shaikh it is his choice. The states of guidance are above all states, and the master must not ask except from the Divine Presence.”

Many Shaykhs today deceiving their followers by asking them for Money. They offer big status and Maqams (Spiritual ranks) to his followers. Such things never happened in the History of Sufism. The Shaykh who ask from his followers for wealth is in fact doing “Hidden Shirk” . It is a proof that the Shaykh did not reach in Wilayath nor Shaykh hood nor Haqiqat!

The Shaykh is the One who has reached the State of spirituality according  to the Words “Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel”

“It is said that one time a murid of Junaid came to him and wanted to give him all his money. Junaid refused and said, ‘No.’ When that same murid reached the State of Perfection and was lifted up to the Divine Presence, he came to Junaid and again wanted to give all his money to him. At that time he said, ‘Yes. Now, I accept, because when you give now, you will not regret later.’

“That is why we don’t like our murids to give all their money to the shaikh. When they haven’t reached the state of perfection, they might regret later and be in doubt, and they will be harmed. But when the murid reaches that state he will give sincerely and will never regret it later. The evidence of this is that Sayyidina Abu Bakr and Sayyidina ‘Umar came to the Prophet (s) and from the first Sayyidina Abu Bakr gave all his money. The Prophet (s) asked, ‘What have you left for your family?’ He replied, ‘I have left them Allah and his Prophet (s).’ When the murid reaches the state of real generosity and real perfection, then the shaikh may accept what he gives. If he has not reached that state his gift must not be accepted.”

The shaikh must not order any of his followers to do something he himself cannot do or would not do. He must know all the obligatory and forbidden actions according to the Shari’ah. Similary, he must know all the States of spirituality, and must have tasted all Tastes, so that he is an example, and when he speaks he speaks with real knowledge.

Some Shaykhs teach others to be righteous and he deny himself to practice what he preach to his followers:

Allah forbid it in Sura As-Saff: 61:2-3 O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do? Great is hatred in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do.

An example of this is a lady who came to a perfect shaikh one time with her son, saying, “My son is always asking for sweets. Please pray for him to leave that desire, as I don’t always have sweets to give him.” He said, “Be patient for three days and then bring him back to me.” After three days she brought him back and the shaikh told him, “O my son, don’t eat candies, because it is harmful for your stomach.” From that day the child never ate sweets again. Some time later someone asked the shaikh, “Why did you wait three days to give the child that advice?” The shaikh replied, “When the lady came to me, she asked me to prevent her child from eating sweets. I couldn’t do that for him because I myself was under that temptation of eating sweets. So I stopped eating sweets for three days. When I had stopped, I was able to make a du’a for him, and that du’a was acceptable.”

Qushayri relates in his Letter that  allaj was once asked to talk about poverty. He said, “Wait a minute.” He entered his house, went out somewhere and came back. Then he sat and spoke, saying poverty consists of this and this and that. One murid asked him, “O my shaikh, why didn’t you speak like this from the beginning?” He said, “When I was asked, I had one dirham in my house. I couldn’t speak about poverty while I still had something. So I went took that dirham, went and spent it in Allah’s way, and then I could speak on poverty.”

4- Having His Master’s Authorization:

The Shaikh must have authorization from his Master for training and uplifting his followers and showing the Way of this Path. That ijaza (permission) must reach him through the chain of the grandshaikhs from one to another, all the way back to the Prophet (s). As the wise person will not go to a doctor who has no license in healing, so the seeker in this way must find a perfect guide who has received the license, the ijaza, from his shaikh.

Imam Muslim said, “This great knowledge [the knowledge of the self] is by itself the religion. So you have to know from whom you take your religion.” In the book of Hafiz ibn Ali Kanz al-cUmmal,” the following hadith is found. The Prophet (s) said, “O Umar, your din is your flesh and blood. Look at those from whom you take your din; take it from those who are on the right path and don’t take from those who deviated.” A knower said, “Knowledge is a spirit which is blown into the hearts, not philosophy or pretty tales to be written. So be very careful from whom you take it.”

We are living in a day and age, where so many Shaykhs appearing with new ways that are not authorized by their Shaykhs. The Shaykhs who lost authority due to their neglecting of the adab (morals) of the Way,  they are opening their own Tariqah (Sufi Ways). This newly invented Paths are not authorized by his Shaykh!

So many people are trapped in such strayed ways! We pray that may Allah guide them and forgive them.

5-The Signs of Mastery:The main indication of mastery is that when you sit with a master you feel a breeze of faith, spiritual pleasure. He doesn’t speak except for Allah. He is always advising the good. You will benefit from being in his company as you benefit from his words. You will benefit when you are far from him as you benefit when you are near him. You must see among his murids the picture of faith, sincerity, humbleness and taqwa (God-consciousness), and you must remember, when you are mixing with them, the highest state of love and truth and deference to others. You must see that his followers represent all different kinds of people in the community. That is how the Companions of the Prophet were.

Well, remember the Quran verse about following Ego!, What we do if a Shaykh is slave of his ego and he speak for his own desires , and not for Allah?!!!, except that we leave such Shaykhs and find a righteous Shaykh and save our own Souls!

Islam and tariqah is to surrender to the Truth, not to be enslaved with some corrupt ones!. Islam is to live in the present world not in the past or not in the future. You cannot follow a corrupt one because his past was good,  you cannot follow  a bad one because you think he will become good in the future.

Today, so many Shaykhs misleading their followers. Some so called Sufi Shaykhs doing takfir on other Sufi Shaykhs and their followers. Be most aware of takfiri Sufi Shaykhs. These kind of Shaykhs are the agents of Satan who accuse “Kufr” (Disbelief) on Muslims.  Especially those Shaykhs who accuse Kufr” on other Shaykhs who are acknowledged as “Mumin and Righteous” and authorized as “Shaykh and Khalifa” by great Shaykhs of the time of the two of them (accuser and accused).

Prophet Muhammad (Salalaho alehe wasalam) said : If a person says to his brother, O KAFIR (disbeliever) ! Then surely one of them is such. (i.e; Kafir) (Sahih Bukhari Volume 8 Book 73 Number 125)

Prophet Muhammad (Salalaho alehe wasalam) said : Any person who calls his brother: O Unbeliever! (then the truth of this label) would return to one of them. If it is true, (then it is) as he asserted, (but if it is not true), then it returns to him (and thus the person who made the accusation is an Unbeliever). [Sahih Muslim Book 001, Number 0117:]

Thus, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) stated in a hadith that stresses both brotherhood and fair business practices: “Do not be envious of one another; do not artificially raise prices against one another; do not hate one another; do not turn one’s back on each other; and do not undercut one another in business transactions. And be, [O] servants of Allah, brethren. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He does not wrong him. He does not fail him [when he needs him]. He does not lie to him. And he does not show contempt for him. Piety is here” and he pointed to his chest three times. “It is enough of evil for a person to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. All of a Muslim is inviolable to another Muslim: his blood, his wealth and his honor.(Sahih Muslim)

So we can see that, a person whether a Shaykh or a Murid or a non-Murid is is forbidden for him to slander and accuse kufr (disbelief) on another Muslim.

Such Takfiri Shaykh’s takfir have been refuted by the words of true Shaykhs!

Today, some Shaykhs making “Final Judgement” on some Shaykhs and their followers/other Muslims.

How it is possible for a Shaykh to interfere in the affairs of Allah?. They say: “This Shaykh/this person and his family and his followers will go to hell”, they are worst than so and so evil people etc”

We shall never take such one’s as Shaykhs.

Quran clearly states: “Final Judgement is for Allah Alone”

Also it is an act of “Shirk” to associate one self with their affair of Allah”!

Do we need Judgement day, if such Shaykhs are making “Final Judgement” before hazret Michael alaihissalam blow the Trumpet?

Prophet alaihiswlathu wa salam is Sent to Mankind by God as “Mercy to the Whole World”. Prophet’s true Successors are also Mercy to the World World.

Islam is such clear, so why then you are still misguided to follow such Shaykhs?, Why Such Shaykhs not shamed to leave their chain of “Shaykh-hood”  and begin with basic.

We have seen so many true Shaykhs, before they speak on something, they made sure that they did what they spoke later!.

Hadrat Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) said:the Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) was asked to curse the infidels.He said,“I have not been sent to curse people but as a mercy to all mankind.” (Muslim)

Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam forbid himself to curse the infidels , but look at so called Shaykhs of today, they are cursing Muslims, some of them cursing even the Sufi Shaykhs and followers by accusing kufr and passing judgement that they will go to hell etc!

So who is Your Shaykh?, Are you following a Real Shaykh? a Real Representative of the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam for this time? Are you fooled by Satan and Dajjal?

After reading this post and if you think you are fooled by some false Shaykhs and Satan, then still you have time to find other Shaykh or tariqah. You are welcome to “Osmanli Naksibendi Hakkani Tariqah (Ottoman Naqshbandi Haqqani Sufi Way” of  Sulthanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S) and Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi ar-Rabbani (Q.S) in the Naqshbandi Golden Chain.

SHAYKHS WHO LIE ABOUT ALLAH AND PROPHET (S.A.W):

Some Shaykhs says: Allah and Prophet gave/promised this and and that, and then next year/after that it proved to be wrong  the things they said/happened things opposite to what they have been said in the previous years. And their words came untrue. Which means Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam did not say or offer anything to them.

Some people  teaching reciting an Ayath or a chapter in Quran will give the reciter a rank which Prophets or Previous Saints did not achieve (i.e they will reach a higher station).
This are not Naqshbandi Teachings, nor the Aqeedha of Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah (Asha’ri and Mathuridi creed of Sunni islam)!!!

“Verily, it is indeed Satan that makes you do evil and say things about Allah (or His deen) of which you have no proper knowledge.”[Al-Baqarah 2:169]

Our Shaykh Teaching us that: “No one in this nation can attain the status of Sahaba by efforts of worship/charity”. But Allah can give any authority to whoever HE Wills.

Sahih Bukhari, Book 57:  Hadith 22 Narrated Abu Said: The Prophet said, “Do not abuse my companions for if any one of you spent gold equal to Uhud (in Allah’s Cause) it would not be equal to a Mud or even a half Mud spent by one of them.”  

But it was their waswaasa speaking, false spirits inspiring them, and Satan fooling them. it is time for them to Wake up!

Sahih Bukhari: 
Vol 1, Book 3. Knowledge. Hadith 106.
Narrated By ‘Ali: The Prophet said, “Do not tell a LIE AGAINST me for whoever tells a LIE AGAINST me then he will surely enter the Hell-fire.”  

Vol 1, Book 3. Knowledge. Hadith 108.
Narrated By Anas: The fact which stops me from narrating a great number of Hadiths to you is that the Prophet said: “Whoever tells a LIE AGAINST me  intentionally, then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”

Vol 2, Book 23. Funerals (Al-Janaa’iz). Hadith 378.
Narrated By Al-Mughira: I heard the Prophet saying, “Ascribing false things to me is not like ascribing false things to anyone else. Whosoever tells a LIE AGAINST me intentionally then surely let him occupy his seat in Hell-Fire.” I heard the Prophet saying, “The deceased who is wailed over is tortured for that wailing.”  

And you will see on the day of judgment, those who lie upon Allah, their faces blackened.”[Al- Zumr: 60]
“Say: The things that my Lord has indeed forbidden are, Al-Fawaahish (every kind of illegal sexual intercourse) whether committed openly or secretly

He, the Most High then moved on to describe a more severe “sin, unjust oppression”Then to that sin which is even more severe:  “joining partners (in worship) with Allah (shirk), for which He gave no authority”And then He, the All-Knowing punctuated it with that sin which most severe:“and saying things about Allah of which you have no knowledge. “[Al-A’araaf 7: 33)

Also in Bible: Numbers 23:19 God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

Conclusion:

So we found the diversity of the usage of the term “Shaykh” with in Sufism and in the general ways of Islamic world.

The Sheikh/Shaykh/Seyh titles are used by many, they may be a name sake shaykh, or a real Shaykh.

In Sufism, to become a true Shaykh, requires the above five conditions. There can be many Shaykhs, just like using the Title “Sir”, the title “Sir” was actually for the United Kingdom members of the House of lords.

But today, this tile is used among people to address their bosses military and civil officers.

In general ,sufi world of 21st century, one who is authorized by his Shaykh to make sohbet and zikr is called as shaykh, one who is appointed to cook food and do personal assistance for the main Shaykh, is called as Shaykh , someone who is an interpreter of the grand Shaykh is called as Shaykh. One who is doing the work an ambassador to the world leaders is called as “Shaykh”.  One who is looking after the dergah and properties of the main Shaykh is called as “Shaykh” etc etc

But the True Shaykh is the One who Conquered his ego and appointed to give Spiritual Guidance (Quran 17:80)  and Spiritual Succession of the Main Shaykh.

So you must know with whom the Spiritual Succession. If you have connection with Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam/ Abu Bakkar Siddiq (R.A) or Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (R.A) or with your own Shaykh that you can ask them in Muraqaba (Meditation) that “Is this a real Shaykh?, or who is the Spiritual Successor?” then do that.

You can only fool yourself and others with your wahabi type evidences of the books and of the past. Why you do not have something to show from the very recent appointment or ijaazah?

When New Ijazah/new appointment came, the old one is null. The people has to follow the New appointment/ new authorization/new permission.

today, everyone is under pressure from the false hood. No one want to hold to Haqq tightly. Those who are appointed also failed to follow the teachings and request of their own shaykhs.

We have witnessed all these, that is happening around us.

So this is a strict advise to new Murids and new followers of Osmanli Naksibendi Hakkani Sufis Way.  We love and respect all righteous Shaykhs. But avoid that which is doubtful. Avoid the company of the people who curse you and your Shaykh and his followers. Avoid the company of corrupt ones.

On the authority of Abu Muhammad al-Hasan ibn Ali ibn Abee Talib (may Allah be pleased with him), the grandson of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), and the one much loved by him, who said:

I memorised from the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “Leave that which makes you doubt for that which does not make you doubt.”[At-Tirmidhi] [An-Nasai]At-Tirmidhi said that it was a good and sound (hasan saheeh) hadeeth.
عَنْ أَبِي مُحَمَّدٍ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ سِبْطِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم وَرَيْحَانَتِهِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا، قَالَ: حَفِظْت مِنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم “دَعْ مَا يُرِيبُك إلَى مَا لَا يُرِيبُك”.
رَوَاهُ التِّرْمِذِيُّ [رقم:2520]،
[وَالنَّسَائِيّ]
وَقَالَ التِّرْمِذِيُّ: حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ.

Sunan Abu Dawud: Book 37, Number 4322:Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas’ud:The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: The first defect that permeated Banu Isra’il was that a man (of them) met another man and said: O so-and-so, fear Allah, and abandon what you are doing, for it is not lawful for you. He then met him the next day and that did not prevent him from eating with him, drinking with him and sitting with him. When they did so. Allah mingled their hearts with each other.

He then recited the verse: “curses were pronounced on those among the children of Isra’il who rejected Faith, by the tongue of David and of Jesus the son of Mary”…up to “wrongdoers”.

He then said: By no means, I swear by Allah, you must enjoin what is good and prohibit what is evil, prevent the wrongdoer, bend him into conformity with what is right, and restrict him to what is right.

In Bible too: 2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

So unless you fix your defect, you are not going to reach in the lofty stations of faith. The doors are closed in front of you. Whoever you are and whosoever son you are!

Quran 13:11 Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.  

So some people who are busy with false hood calling for Unity!

Unity under what? Unity with what?, Unity with Haqq and Bathil?

Unity between truth and falsehood?

Quran 2:256 There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. “

So there is not obligation (Compulsion) for Right to join with wrong for so called Unity!

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said, “Allah will never allow my Ummah to unite upon misguidance and incorrect beliefs. Allah’s mercy, blessings and protection are with the largest group of Muslims*. And he who deviates from the largest group of Muslims will be thrown into Hell.”
[Tirmidhi]

*The Last Main Body of Muslims and the Leader were Ottomans!

So I advise,especially the new followers of Osmanli Naksibendi Hakkani Sufi Way from South Asia, Middle East Europe and Americas and elsewhere in the World, to stick to the Shaykhs and representatives who are appointed in that way by Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S) and Sahibul Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Ar-Rabbani (Q.S).

What is sufficient for you to succeed in the Journey to Allah is there the with Shaykhs and the tariqah you following

Don’t look into that groups and this groups. If you do not have Osmanli Naksibendi Dergah or Zikr Majlis (Assembly of Zikr) in your place, then you may attend others Zikr or you may not attend.

But you must be sure that the people you are associating with have love and respect for your Shaykhs. if you are in doubt, then it is better do zikr alone and seek the “majlis” (gathering and company) of the Saints of the unseen world (Prophets.Prophets. Awliya Allah, Sahaba ,Siddiqin Saliheen and so on Ref:Quran 4:69)

Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam Advise his Companion Hudaifa Ibn Al Yaman (R.A).
If the gatherings is not according to the ways of the Main body of Muslims and their leader (Ottoman Caliphs and their approved  Schools) then it is your duty to isolate yourself from all these sects and groups until you die and meet your Lord.

Sahih Muslim Book 020, Hadith Number 4553.

Chapter : Instruction to stick to the main body of the Muslims in the time of trials and warning against those inviting people to disbelief.

It has been narrated on the authority of Hudhaifa b. al-Yaman who said: People used to ask the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) about the good times, but I used to ask him about bad times fearing lest they overtake me. I said: Messenger of Allah, we were in the midst of ignorance and evil, and then God brought us this good (time through Islam). Is there any bad time after this good one? He said: Yes. I asked: Will there be a good time again after that bad time? He said: Yes, but therein will be a hidden evil. I asked: What will be the evil hidden therein? He said: (That time will witness the rise of) the people who will adopt ways other than mine and seek guidance other than mine. You will know good points as well as bad points. I asked: Will there be a bad time after this good one? He said: Yes. (A time will come) when there will be people standing and inviting at the gates of Hell. Whoso responds to their call they will throw them into the fire. I said: Messenger of Allah, describe them for us. He said: All right. They will be a people having the same complexion as ours and speaking our language. I said: Messenger of Allah, what do you suggest if I happen to live in that time? He said: You should stick to the main body of the Muslims and their leader. I said: If they have no (such thing as the) main body and have no leader? He said: Separate yourself from all these factions, though you may have to eat the roots of trees (in a jungle) until death comes to you and you are in this state.

Wake up to yourself, Sulthanul Awliya teaching to liberate your Soul from falsehood and to surrender to Haqq. Stop fooling yourself!

Q&A How do we know if it is Rasoolullah (Peace be upon him) we saw in the dream?

Q&A

Question: how do you know if it is RasoolAllah saw in the dreams? sorry for this humble question…Insha Allah I will see him too in my dream..

Answer:
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Soul Recognizing Prophet (s.a.w) better than they recognize their children.
Sura Al Anaam verse 20: Those whom We have given the Book recognize him as they recognize their sons. Those who have lost their souls — they will not believe.
Al Bakara verse 146 Those to whom We gave the Scripture know him as they know their own sons. But indeed, a party of them conceal the truth while they know [it].

What is Soul?:

Quran: 17:85 And they ask you, [O Muhammad], about the soul. Say, “The soul is of the affair of my Lord. And mankind have not been given of knowledge except a little.”

Quran 39:42 It is Allah that takes the souls (of men) at death; and those that die not (He takes) during their sleep: those on whom He has passed the decree of death, He keeps back (from returning to life), but the rest He sends (to their bodies) for a term appointed verily in this are Signs for those who reflect.

So, the dream of a pious believer is one of the 46 Branches of Prophet-ism (Hadith)

True dreams are a part of Prophethood, as it was reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “True dreams are one of the forty-six parts of Prophethood.” (al-Bukhaari, 6472; Muslim, 4201)

So if the ordinary scholars of Israel have insight to our Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam, then what about the pious Muslims scholars (awliya Allah) of this Ummah?
In the above verses in Quran, it is speaking about a time, when there is no DNA or other methods to recognize one person, but through spirituality.

The above verses are a proof against Salafi/Wahhabi also, as they deny the spiritual power of Awliya Allah.
Awliya Allah can recognize the lineage and back ground of a person, as Quran says about the righteous scholars of Israel who can recognize Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam.

Quran 3:18 Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge – [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

According to the above verse those of knowledge (ulool ilm) have taken shahadath (testimoney of faith) in the perfect way as the angles does..

Such ones whom God appointed after Prophets , they are awliya Allah (saints) of Allah, who carry the Noor (Quran 2:257) of Allah and guidance (Quran 2;2)

They are with Prophets Siddiqin and Saliheen in this age and in the age to come:

Quran 4:69 And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger – those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of thName_39e prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions.

Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “He who saw mein a dream has certainly seen me, for Shaytan can not take my form” [Sahih al-Bukhari Vol 9  & Sahih Muslim Vol 4]

The End of Sunni-Shia Ideological Differences

Bismillahi Rahmani RaheemDSC02144

Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim

THE END OF SHIA-SUNNI IDEOLOGICAL CONFLICT AND SECTARIANISM!

In the name of Allah, I begin here to write this most difficult topic. I am asking Allah’s forgiveness and the forgiveness of all Prophets and Saints whom I mention here in this post. I ask forgiveness for if I use any words or cause any error unintentionally.

By writing this post,I intent the unity of Muslims,the Happiness of Allah and Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam on me.

I see in the past 1000 years Muslim nations paining Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam regarding his family, and his companions (peace be up on them)

Daylmi narrates from Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed that Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said

اشتد غضب الله على من آذاني في عترتي

‘Allah’s most severe wrath (punishment) will be upon the one who pains me regarding my family.’[Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 12, Page 93, Hadith 34143]

Especially in this times, there are conflicts with in the sunni, sufi shia groups regarding the rank of their leaders/awliya/imam they follow!,

 

There are shia type sunnis and Wahhabi type Shias and Shia type Wahabis (who only follow certain salafi clerics and abuse all other great scholars)

so I would suggest the Muslim nation:

-Stop fooling yourself

-Stop making confusion and fighting

– Stop lying and slandering Ahlul Bayth and Companions of Prophet (s.a.w)

ALLAH SAYS IN QURAN: 3:26 Say, “O Allah , Owner of Sovereignty, You give sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will. You honor whom You will and You humble whom You will. In Your hand is [all] good. Indeed, You are over all things competent.

This is an open writing to the blog, it’s interactive post, not an article style.

Narrated Muawiya: I heard Allah’s Apostle (SalAllahu alayhe wassallam) saying, “If Allah wants to do good to a person, He makes him comprehend the religion. I am just a distributor, but the grant is from Allah. (And remember) that this nation (true Muslims) will keep on following Allah’s teachings strictly and they will not be harmed by any one going on a different path till Allah’s order (Day of Judgment) is established.” Sahih Bukhari. (Book #3, Hadith #71)

Narrated Humaid: I heard Muawiya bin Abi Sufyan delivering a sermon. He said, “I heard the Prophet saying, “If Allah wants to do a favor to somebody, He bestows on him, the gift of understanding the Quran and Sunna. I am but a distributor, and Allah is the Giver. The state of this nation will remain good till the Hour is established, or till Allah’s Order comes.” Sahih Bukhari. (Book #92, Hadith #415)

Now your problem is whether Imam Ali (A.S) or Abu Bakar (R.A) Omar (R.A) and  Usman  (R.A) should be first Caliph or top leader/superior !

Shia Says: Ali (R.A) must be the first Caliph and he is superior to others,

Shia is wrong when they say Ali must be first Caliph.

But  in a spiritual context Ali is Superior to others:

Because Prophet (s.a.w) says: Jami At-Tirmidhi, Vol 6, Ch: Al Manaqib (Darussalam Publications)
Hadith No: 3713 Abu Sariah or Zaid Ibn Arqam -Shu’ab had doubt-narrated, from the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihiwasallam): “For whomever I am his Mawla ,then Ali is his Mawla”. (Sahih)

Now the question is, for how many Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam is “Mawla”?

Prophet (s.a.w) : I am the Prophet when Adam (A.S) was between clay and water

As Sunnis and Shia agree, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) is Imam of all Prophets, so if Prophet (s.a.w) is Mawla to all Prophets and all nations, as it happen on the judgement day, all Prophets and all nations come to Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) and ask for intercession, is Imam Ali (a.s) also Mawla to all Prophets and all nations?

I would leave sunnis and shias scholars to answer for the above question!

Imam Tirmidhi Narrates: Hubshi bin Junadah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Ali is from me and I am from Ali. And none should represent me except myself or ‘Ali’.” (Hasan)
Imam Tirmidhi said: This Hadith is Hasan Gharib Sahih

A question here is who would then represent Prophet (s.a.w) in this world and hereafter?, Imam Ali (a.s) or other companions?

Since this questions and it’s answers are not our business , but there are so many obligatory things we have to concentrate on, also Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam did not tell anyone to make sectarianism on his companions and family, a large group is mislead by Satan!

WHY ABU BAKAR UMAR AND USMAN (Peace be upon them) are first legitimate Caliphs the order?:

After Prophet (s.a.w) passed away, the duty towards his family fell upon Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (R.A).

Abu Bakar,Umar and Usman (Peace of Allah be upon them) were equally eligible to become Caliphs. So the Muslim committee decided  the order of Caliphate by the Will of Allah and by the Will of Prophet (s.a.w) and the signs and sayings Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) given (including the prediction about the martyrdom of Imam Hussain and Imam Hassan to be a Sayyid whose hand two groups will reconcile) Abu Bakar Siddiq (R.A) Umar (R.A) and Usman (R.A) to be first three Caliphs before Imam Ali (R.A)

After Prophet (s.a.w), beloved daughter of Prophet (saw) and wife of Imam Ali (A.S), Hazret Fatima Zahra (RA)  passed away and Imam Ali in the time of his grieve, he had to look after two sons and the rest of the relatives of family of the Prophet (s.a.w), and it was not the time for him to take over the Caliphate, as I quoted Sura Aal Imran verse: 3:26 It was Allah’s decree how the Caliphate was established.

Everything is based on ALLAH’s Majestic decree, Shia rejecting “Malik Al Mulk” and have not yet completed their faith in ALLAH Subhana Wa Ta’ala.

THE INFALLIBLE ALI (R.A) AND HIS SONS WERE GIVEN OATH OF ALLEGIANCE TO ABU BAKAR UMAR AND USMAN (PEACE BE UP ON THEM ALL)

Jami Tirmidhi (Darussalam Publications) 3723: Ali narrated that the Messenger of Allah(salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “I am the house of Wisdom, and Ali is it’s door”

Can Shia or anyone else be better than Imam Ali (R.A) in knowledge?, of course never!

Ali (R.A) had his knowledge, and he followed his knowledge, but others who disagreed in the knowledge were in clear error!

TO SUNNIS:

after reading the above posts and hadith, It came to my heart to quote:

Jami At-Tirmidhi (Darussalam Publications): 3730: Sa’d bin Abi Waqas narrated that the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam said to Ali, “You are to me, in the position that Harun was to Musa, {Except that there is no Prophet after me]. (Sahih)
Imam Tirmidhi said this hadith is Hasan Sahih
Also narrated by Jabir Bin Abdullah Hadith 3731

Same kind of narrations can be found in Sahih Muslims.

So, now I ask Shia, if Imam Ali (R.A) is superior , does that mean that Imam Ali (R.A) is excluded from following other Companions?

Musa A.S being a greatest Prophet, Allah ordered him to follow hazret Khidr (A.S)

Prophet (s.a.w) ordered you all to read Sura Al Kahf, because you are making fitnah and lies against Ahlul Bayth and Companions!

A Hadith in Adab Al Mufrad Narrates: Ali kissed the feet of Al Abbas (R.A)

Does Sunni say, because Imam Ali (R.A) in the fourth position of Caliphate his superiority is fourth in the line?

But Prophet (s.a.w) says: I am the Prophet when Adam was between clay and water.

So now, what Sunni and Shia going to do?, Allah sent the first Prophet to the last nation?, Shia may fight and say now: Allah did wrong by sending the Imam of the Prophets, First Noor and the Holy Spirit in the last, and it was wrong? (nauzubillah)

Come on people, wake up and use your intelligence, if you have one!

But Allah says: Sura 3:33 Indeed, Allah chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of ‘Imran over the worlds.

So now, you people are going to fight with ALLAH Subhana Wa Ta’a for choosing Adam, Noah and the family of Abraham and family of Imran (Peace be upon them) over the worlds?

Or the verse above is a fabricated verse?, I am asking to  Sunni and Shia, bring your Quran let’s look into it!

Allah says in Quran 3:34 Descendants, some of them from others. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.

There is also an ahlul bayth here, the family of Abraham and Imran (Peace be upon them)

Why shia is so stubborn? There will be no Shia’ism in the time of Nabi Isa A.S when he comes back!,Because Shia’ism follow only 12 Imams or particular Imam of ahlul Bayth of Nabi (A.S).

Jesus Christ (A.S), Isa Ibn Maryam, not a children of Ali and Fatima (Peace be upon them)

So Shia must prepare to perish with their ideology when Isa Ibn Maryam comes down from heavens!

Wahhaniya also will perish!, because they follow only Quran and Hadith, do not follow Imams.

When Imam Mahdi comes, they will perish!, because following Imams is not a part of Wahhabism!

They are called as salafis sometimes, which means they claim they follow the way of salafs especially companions as they do not follow or mention second and third generation of salafs as it is the stage of Sunni Madhab begins, so wahhabis avoid following second and third generation salafs as second and third part of salaf were following Imams,

So when Isa alaihissalm and Mahdi A.S comes , Wahhabis /salafis will perish, because Imam Mahdi and Isa alaihissalam are not from the salafu salih generations!

false groups will perish in the near future when the Haqq comes!

Because Shia restrict following other Imams and Prophets, but they say they are  following only Imam Ali Hazret Fatima and their two son and the line of 12 Imams!

Now, my heart turning back to Sunnis, to say this:

You are rejecting the superiority of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S) over others when the Hadiths are clear, “for whomever I am his Mawla then Ali is his Mawla”, “Ali is from me and I am from Ali, none should represent me, but myself or Ali”

“Ali is to me like Harun was to Musa,except that there is no Prophet after me”

And you are bringing other Hadiths to argue with this, or saying something that I may cross now!

Read from here: Quran 2:285 The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.”

Allah reminds in this verse: 2:285 “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.”

So, is the Ok with Sunnis? Are Sunnis and Shia and others making distinction/no distinction between any of his messengers?

Check your heart and deeds, are you making distinction between Prophet Muhammad and other prophets (peace and blessings of Allah be upon them)?

If you are not making any distinction, then I would have heard  Muslims speaking more about Jesus Christ (A.S), than Christians, who is coming to this nation in the future.

Are we celebrating Mawlid of our Prophet and Uroos of our Saints and not really giving much importance to other Prophets and Saints, even to Sahabis?

We make large gathering when some Awliya Allah’s anniversary, did we see anything about Imams of ahlul bayth or sahaba or even remembering the first martyrs of Islam?

So, Imam Ali (R.A) coming fourth in Caliphate making him inferior (less superior) to the first three?

So, you are saying Prophet Muhammad (s.aw) coming as last Prophet (s.a.w) make him less than the previous Prophets?, Of course no, because your understanding is wrong here.

There are so many hidden knowledge that is hidden by Awliya Allah, because your heart cannot comprehend that!

Because you are not even busy with things that is concern about you, your sins and purifying your heart!

Sunni Muslims as well as Shia giving much superiority and more respect to our beloved Prophet (s.a.w) as I do, or better than I do.

So, since the sunnis and shias fighting over the Caliphate issues and of Imam Ali’s Rank, then I would like to ask again:

When Allah says in Quran 2:285  “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.”

And Prophet (s.a.w) says: Narrated Abu Huraira: A Muslim and a Jew quarreled. The Muslim taking an oath, said, “By Him Who has preferred Muhammad over all people…!” The Jew said, “By Him Who has preferred moses, over all people.” The Muslim raised his hand and slapped the Jew who came to the Prophet to tell him what had happened between him and the Muslim. The Prophet said, “Don’t give me superiority over moses, for the people will become unconscious (on the Day of Resurrection) and I will be the first to gain consciousness to see moses standing and holding a side of Allah’s Throne. I will not know if he has been among those people who have become unconscious; and that he has gained consciousness before me, or he has been amongst those whom Allah has exempted.”  (Sahih Bukhari Book #55, Hadith #620)

There are many narrations about the above hadith in other books (Muwatta of Imam Malik and others)

Does Muslims, both sunni and shiia Obeying, what Prophet (saw) said in the above Hadith? If you are not obeying Prophet (s.a.w) completely in certain matter, then why you fighting and splitting into sects, just because someone not following what you follow and you are not following what others following?!

or Sunnis, who reject the Superiority of Imam Ali (R.A) agree that the above hadith is fabricated?, as Sunnis and Shias give superiority to our beloved Prophet (saw) over other Prophets!

Today even there are sufi shaykhs mureeds and sufi groups fell into this trap of sectarianism and weighing the rank of certain shaykhs and saints!

Some Shaykhs even claiming I am family of this shaykh , this Prophet, this sahabi, so I am a superior Khalifa, I am a son in law of this shaykh, so sons are more closer than the other khalifa!

Adam A.S and Noah A.S also had  a disobedient son, I would like to remind them!

What I want you to do is: agree that you all have fallen shortage in fulfilling the command of Allah and command of Prophet (s.a.w), then why you taking others faults or shortcomings or even approve matters for sectarianism and violence?

Isa A.S said to the priests who wanted to stone a prostitute to death: ” If anyone of you did not sin, then stone the lady to death”

Yes, Mahdi and Jesus (Peace be upon them) son of Mary (Peace be upon her) is coming, coming to stop your sunni shia drama and fitnah!

I know many Sunnis and Shia, who make big salute and salawat on our Prophet and ahlul bayt (peace be up on them), and at the same time sitting like dead corpse when the name of other Prophets are mentioned!, violating 2:285 and above Hadith in Bukhari!

So when we see Sahih Bukhari hadith: “Do not give me superiority over Moses”?, does that mean that Prophet (s.a.w) is not superior to all other Prophets?

“We make no distinction among the Messengers”- 2:285

Does that mean that they all are equal in rank?, No!

So when Imam Ali (R.A) say: when asked who is best?, he said: Abu Bakar, then Omar, then Osman….

It does not give anyone license to categorize sahaba!

Imam Ali (R.A) followed the quran (2:285) by not making himself a distinction from other three companions!, he also followed the Sunnah hadith in Sahih Bukhari and said: Do not give me superiority over Abu Bakar and Umar!, so he said the best are Abu Bakar and Umar (R.A)

Imam Ali’s words are indeed, infallible!

So why you then doing things which Imam ALi did not do?, i.e to claim ranks over Abu Bakar and Umar? (Peace be upon them)…

Why you not following the Sunnath of Nabi (A.S)  see quran 2:285 and Sahih Sahih Bukhari Book #55, Hadith #620 “do not give me superiority over Moses”

The Same Prophet Musa A.S whom our Beloved Prophet (s.a.w) mention as standing holding the pillar of the Divine Throne ,”Moses”  (A.S) did not claim superiority when he met Khidr (A.S), though he was patience and had over excitement what Khidr A.S will do with him!

This is why we say, when you play with things that are not concern about you, you are misguided!

Those who strictly follow Awliya Allah, they do not fight over this issues nor even speak about it, except to stop this speakings!

Only those Shia and Wahhabi type Sunni who succeed Kharij, fight over things that are not fard or wajib on them!

So when you take Hadith about Imam Ali and other Companions in outward meaning, you then reject the spiritual ranks and status of Imam Ali and other companions.

Imam Ali (A.S) is the seal, He is the deputy of Allah and His Prophet for this nation, but the order goes from Abu Bakar, Umar and Usman, by the divine Will as accepted by infallible Allah’s infallible Prophet (s.a.w) and infallible Ali (R.A)

So, if you are following everything as the text says: you make big mistakes, as you do not celebrate the milad of other Prophets nor salute other Prophets!

Jami Tirmidhi: Hadidth No: 3716 Al bara Bin Azib narrated that the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said to ‘Ali Ibn Abi Talib: “You are from me. and I am from you.”
And there is a long story along with this hadith. (Sahih)

When Isa A.S returns , he will pray behind Imam Mahdi (a.s) and Imam Mahdi (A.S) is going to be the Imam, so will Sunni say: Imam Mahdi is superior to Isa A.S because he is Imam in this nation before Isa A.S and Isa Ibn Maryam prayed behind him (mahdi)?

Islamic Spirituality and Mulk and Amr (authority) do not revolve based on your book Usool (written methodology), that only help you study and apply in the worldly ground!

So you must stop Shia Sunni fitnah and surrender to the truth!

Shia pretend Sunnis (traditional) do not love and follow ahlul bayt, if Shia have intelligent mind, then make a search, all Sunni-sufi schools are originated from the line of 12 Imams, especially from the first 7 Imams!

Shia think Sunnis oppressed Ahlul Bayth and Imams, which is wrong, even the Caliphate that came after Imam Hussain (A.S) did a lot harm to other companions too!, look at how the Imams of four madhab died, that time you will wake up a true wake up!

If my father before he pass away, made me to look after our children and family members and told his close friends to take care the business and needs of neighbors and servants, does that mean I am inferior and/or the friends of my father inferior?

What that has to do with some outside people to come and interfere on my father’s decision and cause fitnah among the relatives of my father’s friends and my family and our relationship with them?, when I have no Problem with it!?

Intelligent people do not make a comparison on the people involved over such a situation!

If this matter I am speaking here is wrong, then dismiss that Quran verses 3:33 and 2:285 to be wrong and sahih Bukhari Hadith mentioned above regarding Musa alaihissalam, is wrong!, if you think to challenge me, then that’s what you can do!

I am not a scholar or leader, this is what inspired in my heart, if I made a small error in typing and using wrong vocabulary then may Allah  and his messenger (alaihiswalathu wa salam) correct me and forgive me…ameen.

I am taking from that source which is in heavens. I am not responsible for you nor you are not responsible on me.

If you wish good for yourself, then accept the Truth or do as your ego please!

Allah is my witness for what I have written.

Wa  salamun alal mursaleen walhamdulillahi rabbil aalameen.

Answering Wahhabism: Prophets are helpers in their Graves

BELIEF OF PROPHET S.A.W V/S BELIEF OF WAHHABI:

Wahhabi says: Prophets are dead, not alive in their grave, they 201975_175448645838616_6772958_ocannot hear you nor help you nor guide you nor aid you! Asking help from the grave of Prophets and Pious is an act of shirk! shirk! shirk!

But Hadith says: Prophets are alive in their graves.
PROPHET(alaihiswalathu wa salam) says: Sahih Bukhari, Book 55 Prophets
Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A): Allah’s Apostle(alaihiswalathu wa salam) said, “Adam and Moses argued with each other. Moses said to Adam.’You are Adam whose mistake expelled you from Paradise.’ Adam said to him, ‘You are Moses whom Allah selected as His Messenger and as the one to whom He spoke directly; yet you blame me for a thing which had already been written in my fate before my creation?”‘ Allah’s Apostle said twice, “So, Adam overpowered Moses.”

The above Hadith Proves that Prophets living a normal life in heavens after their death. They are hearing talking even making healthy arguments at times…. Masha ALLAH…hope to be with them in love and joy..ameen ya Allah.

Prophets meeting and greeting each other, introducing to each other: (Sahih Bukhari, BOOK 55 Prophets)
Narrated Malik bin Sasaa: That the Prophet talked to them about the night of his Ascension to the Heavens.He said, “(Then Gabriel took me) and ascended up till he reached the second heaven where he asked for the gate to be opened, but it was asked, ‘Who is it?’ Gabriel replied, ‘I am Gabriel.’ It was asked, ‘Who is accompanying you?’ He replied, ‘Muhammad.’ It was asked, ‘Has he been called?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ When we reached over the second heaven, I saw Yahya (i.e. John) and Jesus who were cousins. Gabriel said, ‘These are John (Yahya) and Jesus, so greet them.’ I greeted them and they returned the greeting saying, ‘Welcome, O Pious Brother and Pious Prophet!;’ “

WHEN PEOPLE SEEKING HELP FROM PROPHETS AND PIOUS FROM THEIR GRAVE (SHRINE), WHEN THEY PRAY, THEY MAY MAKE DUA FOR US AND INTERCEDE FOR US. 

Sahih Muslim:
Anas bin malik reported Allah’s Messenger(s.a.w) saying: I came. And in the narration transmitted on the authority of Haddib (the words are): I happened to pass by Moses on the occasion of the Night journey near the red mound (and found him) saying his prayer in his Grave. [Sahih Muslim Book 030, Number 5858:]

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: I found myself in Hijr and the Quraish were asking me about my might journey. I was asked about things pertaining to Bait-ul-Maqdis which I could not preserve (in my mind). I was very much vexed, so vexed as I had never been before. Then Allah raised it (Bait-ul-Maqdis) before my eyes. I looked towards it, and I gave them the information about whatever they questioned me I also saw myself among the group of apostles. I saw Moses (عليه السلام) saying prayer and found him to be a well-built man as if he was a man of the tribe of Shanu’a. I saw Jesus son of Mary (عليه السلام) offering prayer, of all of men he had the closest resemblance with ‘Urwa b. Masu’d al-Thaqafi. I saw Ibrahim (عليه السلام) offering prayer; he had the closest resemblance with your companion (the Prophet himself) amongst people. When the time of prayer came I led them. When I completed the prayer, someone said: Here is Malik, the keeper of the Hell; pay him salutations. I turned to him, but he preceded me in salutation. [Sahih Muslim Book 001, Number 0328:]

According to Shariah, the obligation of prayer and fasting of a believer end in this world, he as no opportunity to worship or fast after death! (to become a better Muslim), so it is evident from the above hadith that Prophets are not ordinary people like us!

PROPHETS AND PIOUS HELP US , PROOF:

Prophet Moses (alaihiswalathu wa salam) helping Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)
Sahih Bukhari Book 55 Prophets.
Read Hadith about Musa A.S giving Madad and advise (Nasiha) to Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) on the Night of
Journey and bringing down 50 time prayers to 5 times, s another Proof for ordinary Muslims to seek waseela
and help from Prophets and Pious ones,when the Prophets sought help between them, while meeting ALLAH
directly!

SCHOLARS WHO HAVE SUCH SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY AND SPIRITUAL WISDOM LIKE PROPHETS ARE INHERITORS OF PROPHET
“(Pious) Scholars are the inheritors of Prophets” -Hadith.
So Wahhabi scholars do not have that, so they are not real scholars and they are not inheritors of Prophets!
Since they don’t inherit the power of intercession and madad (spiritual support) as stated in Quran 17:80, they cannot be called “as Scholars” whom Prophet (s.a.w) said: “scholars are the inheritors of Prophets”

17:80 Say: “O my Lord! let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honor and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honor; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid (me).” 

An authority to aid me from ALLAH’s Presence , not from our  (eyes) presence!

Anyone can study book knowledge!, so just book knowledge does not make a person scholar and inheritor of Prophets according to the definition of Prophet (s.a.w)

WAHHABI HUDA TV: Relates it:
Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud:
عن أبى الدرداء رضى الله عنه قال سمعت رسول الله يقول,’’ من سلك طريقا يلتمس فيه علما سهل الله له طريقا إلى الجنة وإن الملائكة لتضع أجنحتها رضا لطالب العلم وإن طالب العلم يستغفر له من في السماء والأرض حتى الحيتان في الماء وإن فضل العالم على العابد كفضل القمر على سائر الكواكب إن العلماء ورثة الأنبياء وإن الأنبياء لم يورثوا دينارا ولا درهما إنما ورثوا العلم فمن أخذه أخذ بحظ وافر
رواه الترمذى2606 وصححه الألبانى

Abu’l-Darda’ said, ‘I heard the Messenger of Allaah says, “Whoever follows a path to seek knowledge, Allaah will make easy for him the path to Paradise. The angels beat their wings in approval of the seeker of knowledge, and those who are in the heavens and on earth pray for forgiveness for the scholar, even the fish in the water. The superiority of the scholar over the worshipper is like the superiority of the moon over all other heavenly bodies. The scholars are the heirs of the Prophets, for the Prophets did not leave behind dinars or dirhams, rather they left behind knowledge, so whoever gains knowledge has gained great good fortune.’”
(narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2606; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani).

If the knowledge is book knowledge, then we must agree anyone study book knowledge of Islam are the heirs of Prophets!
But we can see that Prophets were not learning from Books, they received spiritual knowledge from Revelations and Divine Inspirations.
Vahyi (revelation) ended, But ILHAM (Divine Inspiration) continues, Awliya ALLAH who carry the secret and divine knowledge from Prophets. There will be 124,000 Wali of Allah who represent the secret of each Prophets.

Salafi claim, anyone who study by heart the book knowledge is false!

WHO ARE WAHHABIS THEN?:
Quran says: 2:7 Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment.

2:10 In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.

2:11 And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.”

2:12 Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not.

They do not perceive their own corruption and foolishness, then how can they understand those who are living in their grave?

As ALLAH says: Do not call those who died in the way of Allah as dead, but they are alive , you do not perceive it!” (Quran)

2:13 And when it is said to them, “Believe as the people have believed,” they say, “Should we believe as the foolish have believed?” Unquestionably, it is they who are the foolish, but they know [it] not.

2:14 Those are the ones who have purchased error [in exchange] for guidance, so their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided.

2:15 Their example is that of one who kindled a fire, but when it illuminated what was around him, Allah took away their light and left them in darkness [so] they could not see.

The Similitude of Light refer to Guidance (Quran and Sunnah) 
Hadith says: The Prophet (SAW) said: “What I fear most for you, is a man who reads the Qur’an until such time when the blessing of Qur’an is reflected on him and he takes Islam as his Cloak … he then turns around and strips himself off from Islam and then tosses it away behind his back, then he heads quickly towards his neighbour with his sword unsheathed and he calls him a ‘Mushrik'”
I said: “O, Prophet of Allah! Who is more worthy of being called a Mushrik the one being attacked or the attacker”. He replied, “It is indeed the attacker.”

(Hadith narrated by “Abu-Yaa’li” on the authority of “Huzaifah)

Quran 2:18 Deaf, dumb and blind – so they will not return [to the right path].

Answering Wahhabism:Believers Seeking Waseela On the Judgement Day

BELIEVERS SEEKING WASEELA AND TAWASSUL (INTERCESSION AND SEEKING HELP FROM THE PROPHETS AND PIOUS ONES) EVEN ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT!!!
SAHIH BUKHARI: Book 55, HAdith 556]tawassul (1)

Narrated Abu Huraira(R.A): We were in the company of the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) at a banquet and a cooked (mutton) forearm was set before him, and he used to like it. He ate a morsel of it and said, “I will be the chief of all the people on the Day of Resurrection. Do you know how Allah will gather all the first and the last (people) in one level place where an observer will be able to see (all) of them and they will be able to hear the announcer, and the sun will come near to them. Some People will say: Don’t you see, in what condition you are and the state to which you have reached?
Why don’t you look for a person who can intercede for you with your Lord? Some people will say: Appeal to your father, Adam.’ They will go to him and say: ‘O Adam! You are the father of all mankind, and Allah created you with His Own Hands, and ordered the angels to prostrate for you, and made you live in Paradise. Will you not intercede for us with your Lord? 
Don’t you see in what (miserable) state we are, and to what condition we have reached?’ On that Adam will reply, ‘My Lord is so angry as He has never been before and will never be in the future; (besides), He forbade me (to eat from) the tree, but I disobeyed (Him), (I am worried about) myself! Myself! Go to somebody else; go to Noah.’
They will go to Noah and say; ‘O Noah! You are the first amongst the messengers of Allah to the people of the earth, and Allah named you a thankful slave. Don’t you see in what a (miserable) state we are and to what condition we have reached? Will you not intercede for us with your Lord?
Noah will reply: ‘Today my Lord has become so angry as he had never been before and will never be in the future Myself! Myself! Go to the Prophet (Muhammad). The people will come to me, and I will prostrate myself underneath Allah’s Throne. Then I will be addressed: ‘O Muhammad! Raise your head; intercede, for your intercession will be accepted, and ask (for anything). for you will be given. ” 

Narrated Abu Huraira: One day some meat was given to the Prophet and he said, “On the Day of Resurrection Allah will gather all the first and the last (people) in one plain, and the voice of the announcer will reach all of them, and one will be able to see them all, and the sun will come closer to them.” (The narrator then mentioned the narration of intercession): “The people will go to Abraham and say: ‘You are Allah’s Prophet and His Khalil on the earth. Will you intercede for us with your Lord?’ Abraham will then remember his lies and say: ‘Myself! Myself! Go to Moses.”  

In the above Hadith all the prophets commanding to seek Waseela from the next Prophets who come after them. They are not saying : it is shirk to seek Waseela , ask ALLAH directly to help you with your problems! Wahhabi Jahils wake up!

From this Hadith we  can see that all Prophets aqeedha (beleifs) supports Tawassul and Waseela, and it is Islam to seek Waseela!
Since Wahhabism is not correct Islam, they say Waseela is Shirk according to Wahhabi religion!

So we see that Seeking Madad (support aid) of Prophets and Pious ones is part of Islamic life!

Quran says:  17:80 Say: “O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid (me).”
Q&A
Where will Wahhabis be on the Day of Judgement?
Answer: Since Wahhabis deny waseela and tawassul, they don’t get it!, When all Prophets and their nations seek Waseela from the succeeding Prophets until to reach to Last Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam), Wahhabis will stay back asking Allah to save them directly (?).

So Wahhabis will be with those who do not have waseela (disbelievers)!!!

Quran continues: 2:13 And when it is said to them, “Believe as the people have believed,” they say, “Should we believe as the foolish have believed?” Unquestionably, it is they who are the foolish, but they know [it] not.

And they will be left alone behind with those who reject Waseela and disbelievers: (i.e they will be alone with their evil ones)

2:14 And when they meet those who believe, they say, “We believe”; but when they are alone with their evil ones, they say, “Indeed, we are with you; we were only mockers.”

2:15 [But] Allah mocks them and prolongs them in their transgression [while] they wander blindly.

They wander there blindly, and those who blindly followed them too!

Their double faced works did not bring any good to them:

2:16 Those are the ones who have purchased error [in exchange] for guidance, so their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided.

Because they became misguided after knowledge:

THEIR EXAMPLE IN QURAN AND HADITH:

2:17 Their example is that of one who kindled a fire, but when it illuminated (the Quran’s blessings  reflected in their hearts) what was around him, Allah took away their light and left them in darkness [so] they could not see.(they attack other Muslims by calling them Kafir and Mushrik, then Allah took away their light)

The Prophet (SAW) said: “What I fear most for you, is a man who reads the Qur’an until such time when the blessing of Qur’an is reflected on him and he takes Islam as his Cloak … he then turns around and strips himself off from Islam and then tosses it away behind his back, then he heads quickly towards his neighbour with his sword unsheathed and he calls him a ‘Mushrik'”
I said: “O, Prophet of Allah! Who is more worthy of being called a Mushrik the one being attacked or the attacker”. He replied, “It is indeed the attacker.”

(Hadith narrated by “Abu-Yaa’li” on the authority of “Huzaifah)

So stop fooling around with Wahhabi/salafi/ahle hadith sects!

waseela in the judgement day

What does Islam say about Zikr(Remembrance of Allah)?

The Importance and Power of Zikr Allah (Remembrance of Allah):

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem:

Our way “Ottoman Naqshbandi Haqqani Tariqah” is the way of Zikr and Sohbet (remembrance of Allah and Spiritual guidance)

Unlike other ways, we begin with Zikr and then give sohbet/advise to the followers, normally a spiritul talk delivered by the Shaykh or his Deputy (Khalifa)

Other ways (Sufi/non Sufi) lack either Zikr or Sohbet, but it is clear from the traditions, Sunnah that the Sunnah assemblies are gathered both Zikr and Sohbet in it.

“Only in the remembrance of Allah (swt) will your heart find peace”
Quran (Surah 13: Verse 28)”The rememebrence of Allah (swt) is the greatest (deed)”
Quran (Surah 29: Verse 45)

“Those men and women who engage much in Allah’s praise. for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a Great Reward”
Quran (Surah 33: Verse 35

“They are the most wise who remember Allah, standing sitting and lying down”
Quran (Surah 4: Verse 190)

“Their skins and their hearts soften to the remembrance of Allah”
Quran (Surah 39: Verse 23)

“Remember Allah abundantly, in order that you become successful”
Quran (Surah 8: Verse 45)

“Believers, do not let either your possessions or your children divert you from the Remembrance of Allah. Those who do that shall be the losers”.
Quran (Surah 63: Verse 9)

“Satan has mastered them and caused them to forget the Remembrance of Allah. Those are satan’s party; and satan’s party shall assuredly be the losers”
Quran (Surah 58: Verse 19)

Satan Friend of those who Turn away from Zikr:

“Whosoever blinds himself from the Remembrance of the Merciful, We shall assign for him a evil satan who will be his (ever misleading) companion”
Quran (Surah 43: Verse 36)

“Whosoever turns away from My remembrance, his life will be made tight and narrow on the Day of Resurrection We shall raise him blind”
Quran (Surah 20: Verse 124)

Sahih Muslim
Book 35, Number 6505:

Abu Huraira(R.A) reported Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying Allah has mobile (squads) of angels, who have no other work (to attend to but) to follow the assemblies of Dhikr and when they find such assemblies in which there is Dhikr (of Allah) they sit in them and some of them surround the others with their wings till the space between them and the sky of the world is fully covered, and when they disperse (after the assembly of Dhikr is adjourned) they go upward to the heaven and Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, asks them although He is best informed about them: Where have you come from?

They say: We come from Thine servants upon the earth who had been glorifying Thee (reciting Subhan Allah), uttering Thine Greatness (saying Allah o-Akbar) and uttering Thine Oneness (La ilaha ill Allah) and praising Thee (uttering al-Hamdu Lillah) and begging of Thee.

Be would say: What do they beg of Me?

They would say: They beg of Thee the Paradise of Thine.

He (God) would say: Have they seen My Paradise?

They said: No, our Lord.

He would say: (What it would be then) if they were to see Mine Paradise?

They (the angels) said: They seek Thine protection. He (the Lord) would say: Against what do they seek protection of Mine?

They (the angels) would say: Our Lord, from the Hell-Fire.

He (the Lord) would say: Have they seen My Fire?

They would say: No.

He (the Lord) would say: What it would be if they were to see My Fire?

They would say: They beg of Thee forgiveness.

He would say: I grant pardon to them, and confer upon them what they ask for and grant them protection against which they seek protection.

They (the angels) would again say: Our Lord, there is one amongst them such and such simple servant who happened to pass by (that assembly) and sat there along with them (who had been participating in that assembly).

He (the Lord) would say: I also grant him pardon, for they are a people the seat-fellows of whom are in no way unfortunate.

Sahih Bukhari
Volume 1, Book 12, Number 802:
Narrated Abu Ma’bad(R.A):(the freed slave of Ibn ‘Abbas) Ibn ‘Abbas told me, “In the lifetime of the Prophet it was the custom to celebrate Allah’s praises aloud after the compulsory congregational prayers.” Ibn ‘Abbas further said, “When I heard the Dhikr, I would learn that the compulsory congregational prayer had ended.”

Sahih Muslim
Book 4, Hadith Number 1211:Ibn ‘Abbas(R.A) reported: Dhikr (mentioning the name of Allah) in a loud voice after obligatory prayers was (a common practice) during the lifetime of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) ; and when I heard that I came to knew that they (the people) had finished the prayer.

Narrated Mu’adh ibn Jaba(R.A): The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: (The reward of) prayer, fasting and remembrance of Allah is enhanced seven hundred times over (the reward of) spending in Allah‘s path.  (Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14, Hadith 2492)

ZIKR AFTER OBLIGATORY SALAH (PRAYERS):

Salafis do not engage in loud Zikr or  Zikr after Salah in their masjids. Because they claim they are salafis who follow Quran and Sunnah according to Salaf Saliheen, it is clear that their claim is false and  a big lie against Salafs!

Salafs include Prophet(s.a.w) and his generations, generation after them and generations after them.

So the claim of salafis that they follow salafs but clearly they do not follow when we see this hadiths, so their claim is against Prophet (s.a.w) and sahaba (Companions).

See Sahih Bukhari Book 3 Hadith 106-110: (Read below):

And Prophet (s.a.w) said: “Narrated ‘Ali: The Prophet said, “Do not tell a lie against me for whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then he will surely enter the Hell-fire.” 

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Az-Zubair: I said to my father, ‘I do not hear from you any narration (Hadith) of Allah s Apostle as I hear (his narrations) from so and so?” Az-Zubair replied. l was always with him (the Prophet) and I heard him saying “Whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then (surely) let him occupy, his seat in Hell-fire.

Narrated Anas: The fact which stops me from narrating a great number of Hadiths to you is that the Prophet said: “Whoever tells a lie against me intentionally, then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”

Narrated Salama: I heard the Prophet saying, “Whoever (intentionally) ascribes to me what I have not said then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Name yourselves with my name (use my name) but do not name yourselves with my Kunya name (i.e. Abu-l Qasim). And whoever sees me in a dream then surely he has seen me for Satan cannot impersonate me. And whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally), then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”

So why Salafis lying to the world that they follow Quran and Sunnah/they are ahlul hadith?, why they are lying they follow salaf?, think about, can lying people be guided ones?

Why they abandon sunnah?

In South India, if salafi pray in a shafi madhab following Masjid, they normally run away as soon as obligatory prayer finish!

Because they think ZIkr after salah is a great evil and bidah!

Loud Zikr: Narrated Abu Ma’bad: (the freed slave of Ibn ‘Abbas) Ibn ‘Abbas told me, “In the lifetime of the Prophet it was the custom to celebrate Allah’s praises aloud after the compulsory congregational prayers.” Ibn ‘Abbas further said, “When I heard the Dhikr, I would learn that the compulsory congregational prayer had ended.”  (Sahih Bukhari,Book 12, Hadith 802)

Sunan Ibn Majah Vol 5 Darussalam Publications)172-14
It was narrated from Abu Darda that the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Shall I not tell you of the best of your deeds, the most pleasing to your Sovereign (Allah Malik), those that raise you most in status, and that are better than giving gold and silver,or meeting your enemy (in battle) and you strike their necks and they strike your necks?”. They said: “What is that, O Messenger of Allah?
He said: “Remembering Allah (Dhikr) Hasan,Hadith Number 3790

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah and Abu Sa’eed both bore witness that the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “No people sit in a gathering remembering Allah,. But the angles surround them, mercy covers them, tranquility descends upon them and Allah remembers them before those who are with Him” Sahih , Hadith Number 3791

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (R.A) that the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Allah says: ‘I am with My Slave when he remembers Me, and his lips move saying My Name” (Sahih, Hadith Number 3792)

Zikr for those who have less knowledge in Shari’ah:
Some scholars claim you cannot follow the Tariqah unless you have sound knowledge of Shariah, some say Tariqah is after completeting shariah!

This is not true, they are trying to keep people away from ahlu Tariqah (people of Zikr)!

It was narrated from Abdullah bin Busr(R.A) that a Bedouin said to the Messenger of Allah (salla allahu alaihi wa sallam):
“The Laws of Islam are burdensome for me. Tell me of something that I will be able to adhere to. He said: ‘Always keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah, the Mighty and Sublime” (Hassan, Hadith Number 3793)

The Best Zikr:
Jabir Ibn Abdullah (r.a) said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) say: “The best of remembrance is “La Ilaha illa Allah (none has the right to be worshiped but Allah), and the best supplication is “Al-Hamdu Lillah (Praise is to Allah)” Hasan, Hadith Number: 3800

Today, we can see that only Sufi Tariqah (Jama’ath) does Zikr of Allah in proper and uniform manner. No ZIkr circles under a spiritual guide, exists in misguided sects!

They have forgotten this sunnah and running to attack others!

They are trying to label the mark of beast on Muslims, the mark of beast is Kafir (kfra) written on Dajjal’s forehead, the people of Dajjal running around to label Muslims with same mark (Mushrik/Kafir)

BE IN THE ZIKR GROUP OF THOSE WHO ARE GUIDED:

The Golden Rule:

Quran 36:21 Follow those who do not ask you for any wage and who have received guidance.

One who really guided will not ask you any payment/wage in performing zikr prayer or religious service.

Quran miraculously distinguish between real group of Zikr and people who sell the religion (Zikr/Barakah/Knowledge of deen etc)!

So you do not get confused which group of people are the real people of Allah (Rijal Allah)

True guidedoes not make money from religion unless it is given as Sadaqa(charity) /Hadya (gift)

“The likeness of the one who Remembers his Lord and the one who does not Remember Him is like that between the living and the dead” (Sahih Bukhari).

ZIKR WITHOUT SHAYKH AND TARIQAH:

There is an Imam/Amir for every Assembly, Zikr without Imam is not Accepted!

Zikr Without A Shaykh is Not Accepted?

For the Question:

Why I can’t do Zikr myself without a Shaykh and an Ijazah (Permission)?

The Answer is given in the Book: Khala’idul Jawahir:182

“من يذكر الله تعالي بلا شيخ لا الله حصل له ولا نبيه ولا شيخه “

“Whoever do Zikr without a Shaykh,as well as  he has no Shaykh,he will not get Allah and he will not get Allah’s Beloved Rasool (alaihiswalathu wa salam)”Khala’idul Jawahir:182

The great venerable Shafi’e Fiqh Scholar from Malabar region of South India, “Shaykh Zainuddin Maqdum-1 (radiyallahu Anhu) who was a worldwide renowned scholar in Shafi Madhab is saying about the importance of having a Shaykh and Ijazah(permission) and the Adab  (Discipline) of doing Zikr and Dua, in His Book “Adkiya”

ثم اشتغل بالورد لا تتكلمن             مستقبلا ومراقبا ومهلّلا

بطريقة معهودة لمشائخ            لتري به نارا ونورا حاصلا 

فيضئ وجه القلب بالنور الجلي   ويصيرمذموم الطبائع زائلا

هداية الاذكياء

Then you turn towards Qibla and sit in the Meditation (Muraqaba) and recite “Tahleel” and hard work with the Zik (Wird-The Regular Zikr), you got from the Shaykhs of the well known tarikat, Do not talk,Then you will find the light(Noor) and warmthness (relief) in you and your heart will shine through the removal of dirty charecters and habits in you” (Adkiya).

Shaykh Zainuddin Maqdoom (radiyallahu anhu) teaching that your zikr Must be according to the Ways of the Shaykhs of the Tasawwuf.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zainuddin_Makhdoom

Imam Swawi (Radiyallahu Anhu) says:

من هنا انّ الذاكر لا ينتفع بالذكر ولا ينور باطنه الا اذاكان الشيخ عارفا اذنه في ذالك و الذاكر مشتاقا -حاشية الصاوي”

“If anyone want to benefit from the Zikr he is doing and to purify the heart with light (Noor), then he must take the permission (ijazah) of a spiritual knower of Allah (Shaykh Arif billah) and should do Zikr with most sincere way”.SWAVI-1:224

“Those who do not have a Shaykh, their Shaykh is Satan”-Saying of Sulthanul Awliya Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani (Qaddasallahu Sirrahul Azeez)

So that, the Question “Is that not enough to Do Zikr without a Shaykh?” is not right!
