Refutation:Naqshbandi Belief of Attaining Higher Ranks

The Accusation421947_10150685663169744_673384743_11179814_903743767_n-1

THE ISLAMIC(WAHHABI) BELIEF: None could attain the Rank of the Prophets or their Companions The Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) has said in a well known Hadith that, “The best of people are those living in my generation, and then those who will follow them, and then those who will follow the latter” (Saheeh Bukhaaree, Vol 5, Hadith #3, Arabic-English Trans.)

THE NAQSHBANDI BELIEF: Certain people could attain a Rank higher than the Prophets and their Companions. On page 1 of the book The Naqshbandi Way it reads, “Our master the Sheikh says that a person who manages to act on these principles in our times will achieve what earlier generations did not achieve he who attains an exalted stage and a great rank, such a rank which the Prophets themselves and the companions were unable to att in.”

On page 4 of the book the Naqshbandi Way it reads, “Especially those who hold to the Prophets Sunnah, will attain special stations that werent opened to earlier people – not even to the Prophets companions. The deviant claim of attaining the rank which the Prophets could not is a major deception of the Naqshbandiya as any Muslim with even the basic knowledge of Islam will confirm. As regards the companions (May Allah be pleased with them all), the Prophet(sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) in a hadith narrated by Anas bin Maalik (RadhiallaahuAnhu) said – “After me, you will see others given preference to you, so be patient till you meet me.” (Saheeh Bukhaaree, Vol 5., Hadith #137, Arabic-English Trans.) He (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) also said in reference to his Companions (May Allah be pleased with them all), Amin “For by Him in Whose hand is my soul, if you were to spend the like of Uhud or of the mountains in gold, you would not reach their actions.” (Saheeh Bukhaaree)


Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Alaa Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Sallim

We the followers of Osmanli Naksibendi Hakkani Rabbani Tarika (Ottoman Naqshbandi Haqqani Rabbani Sufi Way), do not have a  belief that Muslims can attain a similar or higher rank like Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be Upon him)

There are many Naqshbandi Sufi branches,  some are on correct beliefs and some are on false belief.

However we followers of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S) who are the followers of the Jamath of Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) do not possess the above belief that are accused on us as “Naqshbandi Murids”

It is like, you are saying: “Some Muslims are terrorists, so all Muslims are terrorists and bad!, Some Naqshbandis believe such and such,, so all Naqshbandis are misguided? huh?, What kind of foolish judgement is that?

You need a good Judgement and quality of Wisdom to accuse all Naqshbandis for the false beliefs of some!, so I see the accuser and accused are not much different!


However, some Hadiths states that some Companions, some of the pious Ahlul bayth and some of the Saints of Allah (Awliya Allah) have attained a higher ranks like Prophets,except Prophet-Hood (Nubuwath)

Below are the Ahadith in support to the statement.

In Quran: “The Story of Musa (A.S) and Khidr (A.S) which Allah mention in Sura Al Kahf, the Quran chapter which is recommend to read to save from the fithna of Dajjal!

Prophet Moses (A.S) was ordered by Allah to go and learn from Khidr (A.S), Salafis claim: to ask Allah directly!, but Allah’s order to “follow Imams”, Even Prophet Musa (A.S) is not exempt from following a Shaykh/Imam, though Allah had spoken to him directly and is a Prophet, when Allah is able to him knowledge directly just by “kun, fa Yakun”

According to the narration of Hazrath Omar, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
Surely, some of God blessed servants are neither Prophets nor Martyrs; they are special People, who on the Day of Reckoning, the Prophets and the Martyrs will envy them for their ranks and nearness to their God.

A Companion asked, O Messenger of God (pbuh), who are they, and what kind of deeds do they perform so that we may love Them as well?”

Messenger of God (pbuh) said, They are People who love one another in God, even though they have no consanguineous ties, money to exchange or worldly business to barter with. I swear by God on the Reckoning, their faces will be effulgent lights and they will be raised on Pulpits of Light. They will not be subject to fear when the creation is seized by the awesomeness of the Day of Resurrection, nor will they be subjected with sorrow when the rest of creation will be seized by it.” He then recited, Surely, Gods Deputies are not subject to fear (both in this world and the next, for they will always find My help and support with them) nor shall they grieve (2)

Another narration is as follows:
Surely, among the slaves of God, there are the ones whom prophets and martyrs will envy. The companions said, O Messenger of God, who are they; inform us so that we love them. Upon their wish, the Prophet said, They are such a community that although they have no property (transaction) and kinship between themselves, they love each other. Their faces are full of light. They are on pulpits of light. They continue not to fear when the public fears. They do not grieve when the public grieves. The Prophet then recited the verse: Know well that the friends (saintly servants) of God – they will have no fear, nor will they grieve. (2)

(the explanation to the 35th verse of An-Nur Surah, the explanation about the person upon light is made: His words are light; his deeds are light; his destination is light; where he leaves is light, in the Hereafter his return will be to light, to the paradise. See also Hak Dini IV, 2730; In relation to the 64th verse of Yunus Surah, believers and friends of God with faces full of light and who are on pulpits of light are mentioned. See also Tefsirul-Kuranil-Azim II, 423.Also, III, 291: These friends of God, their words are light; their deeds are light; their destinations are light, where they leave is light; and the paradise, where they will go, is also light.
2. Tefsirul Kuranil-Azim II, 422; Hak Dini IV, 2731; Riyazus-Salihin p. 874.)


Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam said to Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S): “You are to me in the position like Harun was to Musa , except that there is no Prophet after me” (Ref: Sahih Muslim, Jami At-Tirmidhi-Arabic-English_Darussalam Publications, Saudi Arabia)

Also: “Ali is from me and I am from Ali, and none Should represent me except myself or Ali” (Jami At-Tirmidhi”

“For Whomever I am his Mawla, then Ali is also his Mawla”  (Musnad Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal, Arabic English and Jami At-Tirmidhi-Arabic English Vol 6 Hadith3713, Darussalam Publications.

Prophet (s.a.w) is Mawla to all Prophets , Jinns and Mankind. He is the Most Beloved to Allah.

Imam Ali (A.S) also shares the status of Most Beloved to Allah: Jami at-Tirmidhi (Darussalam Publications) Hadith 3721 (Hasan) On the Authority of Anas Ibn Malik (R.A)  : “There was a bird with the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) , So he said: Oh Allah send to me the Most beloved of your creatures to eat this bird with me, So Ali came and ate with him”.

“Hassan and Hussain are the chiefs of the Youth of Paradise”- Jami At-Tirmidhi

Abu Bakar and Umar are the Chiefs of the Mature of people of the Paradise” Sahih Muslim, Jami At-Tirmidhi

There are many great Prophets , but why the Grandsons of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) are chiefs of the Youth in heaven?, Najdis think!

Isa A.S Will pray behind, Imam Mahdi (A.S)– Hadith

While Shari’ah says: “The Most Knowledgeable and the most Pious one and the Most closest one to God must lead prayer”


So, Wahhabi brother (Akhee), the belief you quoted as “Islamic Belief” is not Islamic Belief!, but it’s your own egoistic belief, the limited and imperfect belief that you acquired from reading books and fed into your impure heart!

The religion of Islam and religion of ego is different. We have written the Minhaj of Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam and Sahaba, but you have written the Manhaj of your own ego!, So the matter is closed here now!
