OSMANLI NAQSHBANDI SUFI PRACTICE OF SITTING AFTER FAJR UNTIL SUNRISE : Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Followers of the Naqshbandi Haqqani Osmani Sufi Way is expected wake up an hour before Dawn and pray Tahajjud and to sit after Fajr salat (Dawn prayer) until the sunrise time (Ishraq)
One may pray Tahajjud at any time of the late night according to the Fiqh (Jurisprudence) they are following. But the Tariqah recommend to pray Tahajjud early morning before Dawn!
After the Fajr prayer, Murids (disciples) and followers of the path, to remain on the prayer mat and do the prescribed Zikr and recitation of the Holy Quran.
Some confused people consider Zikr after prayers is an innovation. But this article may help others to understand the Sufi practices and it’s validity in the external knowledge of the Sunnah!
Jabir bin Samurah(may Allah be well pleased with him) narrated: “When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) prayed Fajr he would remain seated where he had prayed until the sun had risen.” (Sahih)
Jami At-Tirmidhi 585
Anas bin Malik (Radiyallahu Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: ” Whoever prays Fajr in congregations, then sit remembering Allah until the Sun has risen, then he prays two Rak’ah, then for him is the reward like that of s Hajj and Umrah”. He said:”The Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: ‘Complete, complete, complete,.” ~ Jami At-Tirmidhi 586 (Hasan Gharib according to Imam Tirmidhi)
Reference for confused people: According to translators of Jami Tirmidhi this Hadith was graded hasan by Wahabi Al Albani
OSMANLI NAQSHBANDI SUFI PRACTICE OF SIX RAK’AH AFTER MAGHRIB :
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Followers of the Osmanli Naqshbandi Sufi Way, practice six Raka prayer (Salat) followed by the two Raka Sunnah prayer after Maghrib.
The Virtue of Praying Six Raka After Maghrib (Sunset) Prayer
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Abu Hurairah (Radiyallahu Anhu) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: “Whoever prays six Rak’ah after Al-Maghrib, and he does not speak about anything between them, then they will be counted for him as twelve years of worship”.
Jami At-Tirmidhi 435
Abu Eisa (Imam Tirmidhi) said: “It has been reported from Aisha (Radiyallahu Anha) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: ” Whoever prays twenty Rak’ah after Al Maghrib, Allah builds a house for him in Paradise “.
Comments by: Jouhar Ali Naqshbandi Al-Hassani
Some of the Hadith about worship and prayers are weak in chain, but those who trust a’immah with whole heart and soul, they only benefit from it. Those doubtful weak faith people are deprived of greater good.
As it is Said: “On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari (may Allah be pleased with him)
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The religion is naseehah (sincerity).” We said, “To whom?” He (peace be upon him) said, “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.”
So there is a Divine Wisdom and reason why some Hadith are weak but the A’immah narrated it and followed it. On the other side, those heart that are sick question the legitimacy of this Hadith and ignore it, they don’t really believe in the imams, they are weak in Faith. So following Hadiths without following imams is a corruption. Because the chain of imams and their legal opinion is as important as the chain of Hadith itself. So even if there is a weak chain, what Imams said about the Hadith make it valid to be followed for the people who love to worship their Creator abundantly!
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim
Reference Imam Bukhari’s Book of Islamic Morals and Manners (Adab Al Mufrad)
A Warning about those who accuse Muslims shirk (Polytheism) for “Kissing hands and feet”.
Also, some misguided sects make out that Muslims making prostration to Pious Scholars, when the intention is to kiss their feet for “RESPECT” NOT FOR “Worship”!
Wazi Ibn Amir said: “We approached [Madinah] and we we were told: “This is the Messenger of Allah, upon him be peace, we took his arms and legs and kissed him all over”. (Imam Bukhari’s Adab Al Mufrad 978)
(This Hadith is also related by Abu Dawud)
Suhayb said: “I saw Ali kissing had and feel of Al Abbas” (Adab Al Mufrad 979)
This are the views of the true “Ahlul Hadith” and true salaf salih , so it is time to forsake false salafis and false ahlul hadith!
Islam is to have good manners with ahlul bayth, elders and the pious scholars. So those who have not learned good manners and respect to the elders, their way is astray!

Evidence for Conducting Urs/Uroos in Sahih Hadith:
It was narrated that Abu Hussain , whose name was Khalid Al-Madani,said:”We were in Al Madinah on the day of Ashura,and the girls were beating Duff and singing. We entered upon Ruba’i bint Mu’awiyah and mentioned that to her. She said: “the Messenger of Allah (SallaAllahu alaihi Wa Sallam) entered upon me on the morning of my wedding, and there were two girls with me who were singing and mentioning the qualities of my forefathers who were killed on the day of Badr. One of the thing they were saying was: “Among us there is a Prophet who knows what will happen tomorrow.” He (Prophet Salla Allahu alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Do not say this, for no one knows what will happen tomorrow except Allah” (Sahih), Sunan Ibn Majah 1897 Arabic-English (Darussalam Publishers, Wahabi Publishers/Saudi Arabia)
From this Hadith, we can see that, Sahaba used to commemorate the passing away of their ancestors!. They used to get together and sing in reverence to the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam and Martyrs. Jahil Wahabis claim to be the followers of Quran and Hadith, but they don’t know any Quran and Hadith. Wahabi Islam is a confusion and disorder!. It is a strayed sect , probably Wahabism is a new religion (like the Qadiyani/Ahmediya Movement) that emerged in 18th century and closely resembles the works of Kharijs!
Welcome to true Ottoman (Hanafi-Sufi Naqshbandi) Madhab following Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah. Say bye to the religion of liars and ignorants)!.
Enter in Islam completely and do not follow the foot step of Satan (Wahabi religion)

SEEKING BLESSINGS FROM THE HOLY RELICS:BELIEF OF SAHABI V/S BELIEF OF WAHABI
Hadith about taking blessings from the belongings of the Prophet of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and/ anything that is used or touched by the body of holy Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam)
Belief of Sahabi (Companion of the Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu Wa Salam):
It was narrated from Abdur Rahman bin Abi ‘Amrah from a grand mother of his who was called Kabsha Al Ansariyyah, that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) entered upon her, and there was a water skin hanging there. The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) drank from it while standing, and she cut off the mouth of the water skin, seeking blessings of the place where the mouth of the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) had been”.
There are many Hadiths in Bukhari and other major collections, the Sahaba preserved holy hair of the Prophet Muahmmad alaihiswalathu wa salam. If honoring Prophet’s belongings is shirk, then how do salafis define, honoring the Black stone (Hajar Al Aswad)???
It was authentically reported in the Hadith narrated by Abu Juhayfah in the two Sahih (Authentic) Books of Hadith that during the Farewell Pilgrimage, when Bilal stepped out with what was left of the Prophet’s ablution water, the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) rushed to take it; some of them took a little of it and others took much.
TAKING BLESSINGS FROM THE WATER LEFT BY PROPHET (ALAIAHISWALATHU WA SALAM):
Narrated Ibn Shihab: Mahmud bin Ar-Rabi’ who was the person on whose face the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) had ejected a mouthful of water from his family’s well while he was a boy, and ‘Urwa (on the authority of Al-Miswar and others) who testified each other, said, “Whenever the Prophet , performed ablution, his companions were nearly fighting for the remains of the water.” (Sahih Bukhari, Book 4, Hadith 188)
Narrated Abu Juhaifa (Radiyallahu Anhu): By chance I went to the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) at noon while he was at Al-Abtah (resting) in a tent. Bilal came out (of the tent) and pronounced the Adhan for the prayer, and entering again, he brought out the water which was left after Allah’s Apostle had performed the ablution. The people rushed to take some of the water. Bilal again went in and brought out a spear-headed stick, and then Allah’s Apostle came out. As if I were now looking at the whiteness of his leg. Bilal fixed the stick and the Prophet offered a two-Rakat Zuhr prayer and a two-Rak’at ‘Asr prayer, while women and donkeys were passing in front of the Prophet (beyond the stick) . (Sahih Bukhari Book 56, Hadith 767)
Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and Sahab revered Hajar Al Aswad (Black stone) at Kaba:
Narrated ‘Abis bin Rabia: ‘Umar came near the black stone and kissed it and said “No doubt, I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit anyone nor harm anyone. Had I not seen Allah’s Apostle kissing you I would not have kissed you.” (Sahih Bukhari,Book 26, Hadith 667)
Comments: An authentic Hadith which may refute strayed strayed priests and misguidance scholars of false sects in Islam. This misguided groups who reject the holy relics , they are speaking high about Sanad! I would like to ask this sqaure heads, can this salafis and their followers produce a Sanad for their aqeedha (belief) that can be traced all the way back to the Prophet Salla Allahu alaihi Wa Sallam through an existing unbroken Sanad?. this ignorant ones claim to be following Salaf, what is their Sanad which we can trace back to the time of Salaf?. If you followers of this heretics do not have proofs, then get back to the Original Ahlu Sunna wal Jamah creed! the Main Body- Ottoman Creed.
Belief of Strayed sectsi: Taking blessings from holy relics is shirk (polytheism) and bidha (innovation)!

HADITH ON USING MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS FOR ZIKR NASHEED AND NAAT:
AND PERMISSION TO RECITE MAWLID AND POEMS OF /ABOUT PIOUS ONES/HISTORICAL EVENTS ETC
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim
Madad Ya Rijal Allah Madad Ya Sultanul Awliya Madad
We are opening this Blog Page “Sufi Answers” with a celebration and written music in it and poem. As any real time celebration comes with some poems, music and singing!
The Enemies of the pious and main body of Islam accuse Muslim majority for using music!. They says music is haram and bidha in Islam. However, their attack against Sufis and Ahlu Sunna (Main body) is coming from their hypocrisy and double standard!
Below are the Hadith references for using Music in Islamic environment.
It was narrated that A’isha (Radiyallahu Ta’ala Anha) said: “Abu Bakar (Radiyallahu Anhu) entered upon me ,and there were two girls from the Ansar with me, singing about what the Ansar used to sing about the Day of ‘Bu’ath’. She said: “And they they were not really singers.”
Abu Bakar (Radiyallahu Anhu) said: “The wind instruments of Satan in the house of the Prophet (SallaAllahu alaihi Wa Sallam)?. That was on the day of ‘Eid’ (Al Fithr). But the Prophet (Salla Allahu alaihi Wa Sallam) said: “O Abu Bakar, every people has its festival and this is our festival”. (Sahih) Reference: Sunan Ibn Majah Vol-3 Page 90 Hadith 1898,Darussalam Publications.
Similar Hadith in sunan An-Nasa’i (Arabic-English) Hadith No: 1598 ,Vol2 Page 448-449 Darussalam Publishers
Note: Bu’ath was a place about two miles from Al Madinah where on that day before Islam, a battle took place between the Ansar tribe and tribe of Aus and Khazraj.
We see that Ansar used to commemorate (Urs) the major events in the life of their ancestors.
PERMISSION TO USE MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS AND SINGING : It was Narrated from Muhammad bin Hatib that Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said :”What differentiate between the lawful and unlawful is (beating) the Duff and raising the voices (in song) at the time of marriage ” (Hasan) Sunan Ibn Majah [Arabic-english ], Vol 3, Hadith 1896, Page 89.Darussalam publications, Saudi Arabia.
Comments by the Translators: Beating Duff on the occasion of weddings serves the purpose that all the people will know about marriage. Songs,poetry etc, may also be sung at this occasion so long as it’s wording is not contrary to the teachings of the Shari’ah; and only the young girls, who are not adult, are allowed to do so. This type of entertainment is allowed during the Eid days too.
Verdict: This hadith refute Wahhabi attack on Sufi people using musical instruments and singing in the Zikr. Also, there is no prohibition or restrictions on which instrument is allowed which is prohibited. Those days only duff and drums were available, people today use electrical instruments, aren’t people using electronic Quran and sound instruments today?.
So wake up people of misguidance!
SINGING TO PRAISE THE PROPHET (ALAIHSWALATHU WA SALAM):
It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that the Prophet (SallaAllahu alaihi wa Sallam) passed by some part of Al -Madinah and saw some girls beating their Duff and singing,
“We are girls from Banu Najjar
What an excellent neighbour is Muhammad”
The Prophet (SallaAllahu alaihi Wa Sallam) said: “Allah knows that you are dear to me” (Sahih) Sunan Ibn Majah 1899, Darussalam Publishers ,Saudi Arabia (Wahabi Publishers)
COMMEMORATION OF SPECIAL DAYS (BADR URS/ASHURA ETC WITH RECITING HISTORICAL POEMS)
It was narrated that Abu Hussain , whose name was Khalid Al-Madani,said:”We were in Al Madinah on the day of Ashura,and the girls were beating Duff and singing. We entered upon Ruba’i bint Mu’awwidh and mentioned that to her. She said: “the Messenger of Allah (SallaAllahu alaihi Wa Sallam) entered upon me on the morning of my wedding, and there were two girls with me who were singing and mentioning the qualities of my forefathers who were killed on the day of Badr. One of the thing they were saying was: “Among us there is a Prophet who knows what will happen tomorrow.” He (Prophet Salla Allahu alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Do not say this, for no one knows what will happen tomorrow except Allah” (Sahih), Sunna Ibn Majah 1897
Comments: In Sufi Paths (traditional Islam), it is still a traditions to sing and commemorate the life of Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam, Sahaba ,ahlul bayth nd pious Imams and scholars.
Thise methods has a heritage and it is used as a means to keep the History and biography of Islam and Muslims alive, especially in the days when there is no abundance of paper or other methods to keep the History available to next generation, they preserved it through songs and poems and commemorated anniversaries.
Those who say this practice is Bidha and Haram, yet they run to some universities of yahudis and secularists for a Degree of Islam and write their own books and CDs to preach Islam, must be ashamed of accusing old traditional practices!
The Hadiths support that the practice of Urs (Commemoration of the martyrs and Saints) allowed.
In this Hadith , Prophet SallaAllahu alaihi Wasallam) prohibit saying: “The Prophet knows what happen tomorrow”
However, later Hadiths those especially in Bukhaari and Muslim, explains that Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam was given the Keys of heavens and earth and all knowledge is from Allah, and Allah gives Wisdom to Whoever He Will. And it is clear from other authentic hadiths from Bukhari and Muslim that Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam was given all knowledge concerning his nation!
We can see that, Music is allowed in Islam when it is used in religious ceremonies ,marriages, Islamic festivals, Dhikr gatherings etc! We also see that Music is forbidden when it is used to incite lust ,earthly passions and to make attraction between men and women!. Even, we see that those who attack Sufis for using Music during Dhikr (Zikr) , those people (Wahabis/false tawheed groups) use music in their TV channels , for promoting their events and video trailers! They even use Hollywood film clips to promote “End of Time” subject based Dawah programs!.
You can see youtube videos of Peace TV.Huda TV etc using music in their trailers and programs. The false scholars who accuse Sufis for using Music, you can see their Youtube End of Times (Doomsday) Islamic lectures filled with music and hollywood movie clips!
Seek the Sufi Islamic Way, which is the only correct Path without any hypocrisy and double-standard!

Question and Answer on Sufi Hadara (Gathering):
Question from a Sister: I had a question about the hadra practiced in the tariqat
It somewhat resembles the hasidic dance of jews which they practice on some occasions..and we are forbidden to do anything that resembles non muslim faith…
Can u clear this for me….it is bothering my mind
wa alaikumussalam wa RahmatuAllah wa Barakathu hu Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Many Jewish practices are from the Sunna of the Prophets Israel. We should remember that, when Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam reach Madina , he (alaihiswalathu wa salam) saw Jews fastin on Ashura, and Prophet Alaihiswalathu wa salam commanded Muslims to fast, by saying “we have more right to Musa (alaihissalam) than they.
Sufi Hadra are organised by high eminent shaykhs who are scholars of the religion too.
If dancing look like Hasidic jews and Islam forbid following Jews, why then Muslims wearing the dress of non-Muslims (like Jeans, tie and suite etc)? Doesn’t islam teach Sunnah cloth? Taking bank a/c in non-Muslim Usury banks etc could be serious sin than just dancing!
Salafis wearing scarf on their head, that is a Jewish practice too!. Wearing a plain topi (Hat) on the head is also a Jewish practice, Prophetic Sunnah is to wear a Turban over the cap!. see Sunan Abu Dawud Kitab Libas!. Women Wearing Niqab is also Jewish practice. If you have doubt You can look up google for images!
We do see in Hadith that , the COmpanions of the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam used to sing and dance moderately in the Mosques and gatherings.
Imitating Jews and Christians does not mean about dancing or eating. We eatin this days as Christians and Jews We growing beard as Jews We covering head as Jews! I mean to say, Jews cover head, usually without a turban. So If Muslim cover head and not wearing a turban, should we call it muslim initiating Jews by not wearing a turban?
We cannot say that, Muslims dancing singing Zikr and Durood, Naat etc
Jews dancing singing what they learned from their religion.
Bollywood sing and dance what they promote in their movie.
All are different context.
Muslims shake their body back and forth while reciting Quran, this is common in South Asia and Africa. this is inherited from Jews? Because the Jews shake their body while reading Torah …
So we can understand that just engaging in outward movement does not make us imitators of other faith.
This is why we differ from Jews in recitation ,or time, or occasion etc.
We should remember that the Food of Ahul Kitab is allowed for us.
Islamic acts are defined by what is Haram and Halal.
Islam is complete 1400 years ago, what is allowed is allowed forever,what is forbidden (haram) is haram forever.. Since dancing existed among Sahaba and thabi’een, and it was not forbidden.
Then what is not allowed or forbidden then, because it was not practiced or existed, such matters are discussed by Mujtahideen (Chief Scholars and Imams) and given verdict through scholarly conscience and analogy.
and finally, nobody ask Fatwa about this types of dance!:
Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Sallim
Madad Ya Sahibul Saif Madad Ya Sultanul Awliya
It is an irrefutable commandment in Quran and Sunnah to follow Imams and Shaykhs (leaders of the Muslims). Misguided groups does not follow Imams, however, those who say they follow Imams , they do not accept the Imams and Main body whole heartedly and completely. They choose to follow some and at the same time, they have malice hatred against some other Imams of Islam.
The Salafis who attack Sufis and Ahlu Sunnah, claim that following Imams is shirk and bidha!, but we can see 100s of Hadith which speaks about Muslim world awaiting Imam Mahdi (alaihissalam). If following Imams is shirk and bidha, how can there be Imam Mahdi (alaihissalam) in Islam.
The opponents of those who follow Imams quote the Quran verse from Sura Ma’dha verse 5
“This day, those who disbelieved have given up all hope of your religion, so fear them not, but fear Me. This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned meats), then surely, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (5:3)
They also Quote the Hadith: (ref Imam Nawawi 40 hadith)
On the authority of Abu Najeeh al-’Irbaad ibn Saariyah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) gave us a sermon by which our hearts were filled with fear and tears came to our eyes. So we said, “O Messenger of Allah! It is as though this is a farewell sermon, so counsel us.” He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “I counsel you to have taqwa (fear) of Allah, and to listen and obey [your leader], even if a slave were to become your ameer. Verily he among you who lives long will see great controversy, so you must keep to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of the Khulafa ar-Rashideen (the rightly guided caliphs), those who guide to the right way. Cling to it stubbornly [literally: with your molar teeth]. Beware of newly invented matters [in the religion], for verily every bidah (innovation) is misguidance.”[Abu Dawud] It was related by at-Tirmidhi, who said that it was a good and sound hadeeth.
The Immature and idiotic people, therefore say that, following Imams and Shaykhs, who came after Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam, is Shirk and Bidha!,they say that following their teachings is Innovation etc! They , then quote the verses in Quran and Hadith about pagans and polytheists and Hadith about Muslims imitating the priests from among Christians and Jews as following innovation in regards to following Imams and Shaykhs.
Then they appoint their own versions of Imams instead following the traditional Imams and Shaykhs from a clear and legitimate chain of authority (Silsila) and they also establish their own egoistic versions of groups and sects to follow those made up Imams and Shaykhs who come with a diploma from institutions collaborated or affiliated to the centres of disbelief and hypocrisy!
WHAT DOES QURAN SAYS ABOUT FOLLOWING IMAMS OF THE MAIN BODY?:
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.
It is forbidden to dispute with those who are in authority (Ulool amri), “Amri” is Tawheed, Tawheed is the foundation of Islam, Iman and Ihsan (Foundation of deen), the Khalifa of Muslims, the Imams, the Shaykhs and Awliya Allah, all of them represent “Tawheed”. See Quran 3:18
“Ulool Ilmi” (Quran 3:18) are the Chosen inheritors of “gnosis of God’s Oneness” (thawheed), the Arifeen (inheritors of the spiritual knowledge of God’s Oneness).
They are (Such Scholars who inherit the Spiritual Wisdom of The Oneness of Allah) the heirs of the Prophets as stated in Tirmidhi. The Hadith which says: “Scholars are the heirs of the Prophets”.
Quran 9:119 O ye who believe! Be careful of your duty to Allah,and be with the truthful.
One of the duties to Allah, mentioned together in this verse is to be with the truthful. As Salafists deny the possibility to be with the dead, we emphasise on this verse by saying to follow the Siddiqin (truthful) who live among us as stated in Quran 4:59.
Therefore, it is a commandment from Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala that you must be with the truthful (Siddiqin) and follow them. It is a high station of a Mu’min after the station of the Prophets to be from among”Siddiqin”.
The religion is based on following and taking part in the companionship of the righteous and truthful Imams who are there time to time among the people in each generation.
if there is no such authority as “Ulool amri” (4:59) Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala would not have commanded to obey those who are in authority among you.
Quran 36:21 Follow those who do not ask of you [any] payment, and they are [rightly] guided.
Quran repeatedly saying Muslims to follow those who are guided among them. According to many Hadiths, the guidance and straight path is preserved with Awliya Allah and Ahlul Bayth ((the progeny of the Messenger of Allah alaihiswalathu wa salam)
Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Wahhabi publications) Hadith Number 3788: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me” (Sahih)
Tabarani narrates from Abu Dhar, who said: I heard the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam say:‘The example of my Ahl al-Bait within you is the example of the Ark of Nuh within the nation of Nuh; whoever boarded it was saved and whoever stayed behind was destroyed. It is also the example of the ‘Hitha’ of the Bani Isra’eel.’[Tabarani in Al-Awsat, Vol. 4, Page 283, Hadith 3506 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 2, Page 427, Hadith 3312]
FOLLOWING IMAMS IN HADITH:
عَنْ أَبِي رُقَيَّةَ تَمِيمِ بْنِ أَوْسٍ الدَّارِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ: “الدِّينُ النَّصِيحَةُ.” قُلْنَا: لِمَنْ؟ قَالَ: “لِلَّهِ، وَلِكِتَابِهِ، وَلِرَسُولِهِ، وَلِأَئِمَّةِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَعَامَّتِهِمْ.”
On the authority of Tameem ibn Aus ad-Daree (ra): The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The deen (religion) is naseehah (advice, sincerity).” We said, “To whom?” He (ﷺ) said, “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslimsand their common folk.” [Sahih Muslim]
IMAM MAHDI IN HADITH:
Abu Nadra reported:” We were in the company of Jabir b. ‘Abdulldh that he said it may happen that the people of Iraq may not send their qafiz and dirhams (their measures of food stuff and their money). We said: Who would be respolisible for it? He said: The non_Arabs would prevt them. He again said: There is the possibility that the people of Syria may not send their dinar and mudd. We said: Who would be responsible for it? He said This prevention would be made by the Romans. He (Jabir b. Abdullab) kept quiet for a while and then reported Allah’, s Messengdt (may peas be upon him) having said There would be a caliph in the last (period) of my Ummah who would freely give handfuls of wealth to thd people wiothout counting it. I said to Abu Nadra and Abu al-‘Ala: DO you mean ‘Umarb. ‘Abd al-Aziz? They said: No (he would be ImamMahdi.).(Sahih Muslim,Book 41, Hadith 6961)
IMAM AMONG MUSLIMS:
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) observed: What will be your state when the son of Mary descends amongst you and there will be an Imam amongst you?(Sahih Muslim,Book 1, Hadith 0290)
This Hadiths are enough evidence that “Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah” the Saved group, will be the people who follow Imams and Main body of Muslims, who continue to follow Imams until day of Judgement!
A GREAT IMAM IN EVERY CENTURY:
Narrated AbuHurayrah (R.A): The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Allah will raise for this community at the end of every hundred years the one who will renovate its religion for it. Ref: Sunan Abu Dawud 4278
Following Accoridng to Sunnah is to Make BAYAH (Oath of Pledge/Allegiance) and Follow wholeheartedly:
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.’ (Bukhari Book 92, Hadith 377)
HAZRET ABU HURAIRAH (RADIYALLAHU ANHU) AS IMAM:
Salim bin Hayyan (RA) said: I heard my father say: I heard Abu Hurairah (R.A) say: “I grew up as an orphan and I emigrated as a poor man,and I was hired by the daughter of Ghazwan in return for food and a turn riding the camel. I would gather firewood for them when they stopped to camp and urge their camels along for them by singing when they rode. Praise is to Allah Who has caused His religion to prevail and has made Abu Hurairah an Imam” (Sahih) Sunan Ibn Majah 2445, Darussalam Publications.
SAHABA ALSO MUST FOLLOW IMAMS:
Sahih Bukhari: Narrated Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman: The people used to ask Allah’s Apostle about the good but I used to ask him about the evil lest I should be overtaken by them. So I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We were living in ignorance and in an (extremely) worst atmosphere, then Allah brought to us this good (i.e., Islam); will there be any evil after this good?” He said, “Yes.” I said, ‘Will there be any good after that evil?” He replied, “Yes, but it will be tainted (not pure.)” I asked, “What will be its taint?” He replied, “(There will be) some people who will guide others not according to my tradition? You will approve of some of their deeds and disapprove of some others.” I asked, “Will there be any evil after that good?” He replied, “Yes, (there will be) some people calling at the gates of the (Hell) Fire, and whoever will respond to their call, will be thrown by them into the (Hell) Fire.” I said, “O Allah s Apostle! Will you describe them to us?” He said, “They will be from our own people and will speak our language.” I said, “What do you order me to do if such a state should take place in my life?” He said, “Stick to the group of Muslims and their Imam (ruler).” I said, “If there is neither a group of Muslims nor an Imam (ruler)?” He said, “Then turn away from all those sects even if you were to bite (eat) the roots of a tree till death overtakes you while you are in that state.”(Saheeh Bukhari,Book 88, Hadith 206)
Here in the above Hadith which is also narrated by Imam Muslim in his Sahih, states that Sahaba also obliged to follow Imams and Caliphs of the future. They cannot say, we are Sahaba and we follow only Quran and Hadith. As a matter of foolishness, some people claiming they are following Salaf and they detach from the creed of the Imams of the Main body.
The Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam warns :
Bukhari ,Book 88 Hadith 257 Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) 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)
It is rebellion (Kharijism) to follow (as they falsely claim) only Quran and Hadith or only Allah and Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam). The legitimate Muslim group who are “Al Jamah” (4:69) who are the only saved sect from among 73 sects, are upon following Quran, Hadith, Imams, Sahaba, Ahlul Bayth and Awliya Allah. Those are the succeeding chain of Ahlu Sunna Wal Jamah.
Muslims are not allowed to follow any groups except those who follow the way of the main body and the way of the Imams, the last Ruler (Caliph) of Main body were Ottoman Sultans. They were followers of Ahlu Sunna WalJamah , traiditonal Hanafi-Sunni-Sufi and they were those who carried the flag of Islam for centuries.
Imams are chosen by Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala through the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam. It is not to make imams through voting or elections or a Diploma of Islam from Satan!. No Prophets gave diploma of Religion, nor established colleges to train Imams, Islamic leadership was always brought up through spiritual association with Prophets and Truthful Men of Allah (Siddiqin).
Those who claim they are upon the understanding of Salaf Salih (pious predecessors) and tread on a path of foolishness , arrogance and misguidance, let them wake up!.
Quran 17:81 And say, “Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart.”
Those who are confused about following Imams , Shaykhs and Ahlul Bayth, this information is sufficient for them. But those who deny arrogantly or by following some misguided people blindly, nothing can open their eye, except their fate in the hereafter, when it will be too late for such an opening!
BE WITH SPIRITUAL KABA (THE HEARTS OF THE FRIENDS OF GOD)
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Salim
Heart is the Spiritual Kaba (House of Allah). Some people they want to fill up their heart with idols and corrupt the soul. So they are asking Lord of the Kaba (hearts), for things other than Allah. So they are asking Allah for material things to come to their life and corrupt the heart (Kaba)
What difference between you and pre-Islamic polytheists (idolaters) of Makkah?
Some polytheists worship near physical idols and seek Lord Almighty Alone in their heart. They don’t want anything to be filled in their heart except their Lord-the Creator and Preserver.
They are better than you who does not worship a physical idol, but asking the God Almighty for idols (temporary non-beneficial to soul,desires of this world)t want to fill your hearts with idols of desires,sinful thoughts, self worship and seeking worldly honor!.
DO NOT SEEK GUIDANCE FROM EGO:
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?
People who does self study are misguided, because the idols that is in their hearts make interpretation of the things they are studying, which cause them to deviate from the truth and straight path!, but the purified souls are in the heart of the believer. And the friends of Allah, from whose heart divine light manifest as a guidance to the people. Only the Light of Allah, Noor Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) can guide people to the truth, and only heart that filled with the Light of God grasp the Message of Islam.
Allah says in the Holy Quran: 2:2 This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah –
This is why Allah Almighty Exalted orders: “Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger and those who are in authority among you” (4:59)
WHO CAN GRASP THE BLESSINGS OF QURAN:?
Quran 56:79 None can grasp it Quran) except the sincere.
WHO ARE SINCERE?:
It is narrated on the authority of Tamim ad-Dari that the Apostle of Allah (may peace and blessings be upon him) observed: Al-Din is a name of sincerity and well wishing. Upon this we said: For whom? He replied: For Allah, His Book, His Messenger and for the leaders and the general Muslims. (Sahih Muslim 98)
So, sincere people are those who love and are sincere to Allah, His Angels, Prophets and Imams of Muslims. Not those who say ‘only Quran and Hadith’. Those who say, only Quran and Hadith, and reject Imams and the creed of main body, is fooling you to misguidance and hell fire!
So the people who have malice against Prophets, Sahaba, Awliya Allah, Ahlul Bayth are misguided, though they read the Book:
Quran 17:82 We send down in the Quran healing and mercy for the believers. At the same time, it only increases the wickedness of the transgressors.
So, the People who follow the Imams of Tazkiya (Shaykhs of Tasawwuf) with full submission are the guided and the Book of Allah Heals them and bring Mercy upon them. For others though they read Quran, it does not benefit them. Rather, it increase their heart with hatred , enmity,misguidance and error!. This is how the Sufis become merciful and healers of humanity , while others become dissenters, hateful , corrupter ,and self worshipers!
In the exalted Naqshbandi Sufi Way, the Shaykhs of this path, train the Murids (disciples) to eliminate the false idols, by the Spiritual guidance (Tarbiyya) and Spiritual exercise.
Wa salamun alal Mursaleen walhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen
WHY FOLLOWING PEOPLE OF TASAWWUF ‘OBLIGATORY’?
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Tasawwuf (Sufism) is the Fiqh (Jurisprudence) of the heart. The Messenger of Allah Nabi Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) says:On the authority of an-Nawas bin Sam’an (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
Righteousness is in good character, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul, and which you dislike people finding out about. [Muslim]
And on the authority of Wabisah bin Ma’bad (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I came to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “You have come to ask about righteousness.” I said, “Yes.” He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Consult your heart. Righteousness is that about which the soul feels at ease and the heart feels tranquil. And wrongdoing is that which wavers in the soul and causes uneasiness in the breast, even though people have repeatedly given their legal opinion [in its favour].”
A good hadeeth transmitted from the musnads of the two imams, Ahmed bin Hambal and Al- Darimi, with a good chain of authorities.
عَنْ النَّوَّاسِ بْنِ سَمْعَانَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه و سلم قَالَ: “الْبِرُّ حُسْنُ الْخُلُقِ، وَالْإِثْمُ مَا حَاكَ فِي صَدْرِك، وَكَرِهْت أَنْ يَطَّلِعَ عَلَيْهِ النَّاسُ” رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ [رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ]. وَعَنْ وَابِصَةَ بْنِ مَعْبَدٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: أَتَيْت رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم فَقَالَ: “جِئْتَ تَسْأَلُ عَنْ الْبِرِّ؟ قُلْت: نَعَمْ. فقَالَ: استفت قلبك، الْبِرُّ مَا اطْمَأَنَّتْ إلَيْهِ النَّفْسُ، وَاطْمَأَنَّ إلَيْهِ الْقَلْبُ، وَالْإِثْمُ مَا حَاكَ فِي النَّفْسِ وَتَرَدَّدَ فِي الصَّدْرِ، وَإِنْ أَفْتَاك النَّاسُ وَأَفْتَوْك” .
حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ، رَوَيْنَاهُ في مُسْنَدَي الْإِمَامَيْنِ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ حَنْبَلٍ [رقم:4/227]، وَالدَّارِمِيّ [2/246] بِإِسْنَادٍ حَسَنٍ.
Reference : 40 Hadith Nawawi 27
English translation : Hadith 27
It is the hearts of the Pious Scholars (Rabbaniyyin) , the Awliya Allah (friends of Allah). This book business studies of religion came very recently.
Hazret Mawlana Rumi (Qaddsallahu Sirrahu says: “I`ve been seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking books and the stars. I started to listening to the teaching of my soul.”
Allah says: Quran 48:4 It is He who sent down tranquillity into the hearts of the believers that they would increase in faith along with their [present] faith. And to Allah belong the soldiers of the heavens and the earth, and ever is Allah Knowing and Wise.
Allah did not send you to study with quarrel people of Al alzhar and Riyadh universities, Islam is there before universities formal studies and colleges. But Allah send you to learn deen (religious way) from those who have attained tranquillity.
The understanding of religion and belief can be attained from those whose hearts are purified and annihilated In the Submission of Allah Almighty Exalted. Not from books or slaves of books. Remember, your Lord remind you of the people of the books. Don’t say to me mere books make you purified and pious.
Allah Almighty Exalted says, Quran 91:9-10 He has succeeded who purifies it,And he has failed who instills it [with corruption].
The Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam says:”Beware! There is a piece of flesh in the body, if it becomes good (i.e., reformed), the whole body becomes good, but if it gets spoilt, the whole body gets spoilt, and that is the heart. (Sahih Bukhari).
You can read all books, you can read Quran. All 73 sects reading same Quran.
But Allah says (2:2) This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah –
Quran only guide Ahl Al zikr (people of pure God Conscious).
Allah says (3:7) And no one will be reminded except those of understanding.
You can pray five times or whole day and night , most sects praying five times.
Iblees (Satan) worshiped Allah more than any other creations.
But Allah says: (107:4) So woe to the worshippers
You can fast everyday until your death, but Allah’s Messenger alaihiswalathu wa Salam says: “Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.)” Sahih Bukhari.
So people from all different sects doing prayer, fasting and reading of same Quran.
But the if heart is dirty and filled with thoughts other than thoughts of Allah and His Messenger alaihiswalathu wa Salam, then there is a big problem. Heart is not filled with idols, which is hidden shirk. You can pray in Masjid, but you do not pray where idols are erected, some people saying they don’t like taking photos. They are quoting Hadith hatch says angels does not enter in a house where there is images.So if your heart is filled with the images of the ego (money,women, properties, people etc) and dirty remembrance (lust,greed, anger, jealousy,lie, cheat etc)do you think Allah will send down Sakeenath, in your hearts?. Sakeenath is only for Mu’mineen (true believers). Allah Looks at the hearts (Sahih Hadith). So instead of fooling yourself with dawah and other self worship, to call others to the (false Islam) of your ego, prepare yourself to purify, then call people to truth and righteousness.
One must seek the way of Tasawwuf (path of awliya Allah) this is the reason it is obligatory to study Tasawwuf (Sufism).
Our way(Naqshbandi Tariqah) is built on Adab (أدب ,Islamic Morals), Adab leads to Ikhlas (Sincerity) and sincerity leads to success.
All the ways that does not have Adab (Islamic Morals) lead to Azaab (عذاب/misery )
Our way require Adab (Islamic Morals ) and Ikhlas (Sincerity). Without ‘Adab’ a person can reach in the religion and Tawheed of Iblees (Satan).
Sincerity to Whom?
It is narrated on the authority of Tamim ad-Dari that the Apostle of Allah (may peace and blessings be upon him) observed: Al-Din(Islamic religion) is sincerity and well wishing. Upon this we said: For whom? He replied: For Allah, His Book, His Messenger and for the leaders and their common folk.(Sahih Muslim 98)
It is to listen and obey the spiritual leadership (see Quran 2:285) and 4:59 O ye who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves refer it to Allah and His Apostle if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: that is best and most suitable for final determination.
But you can be arrogant and stubborn, and follow your own ego, instead of following Imams of the Muslims and put your affairs and disagreements aside. That time Satan is laughing at you as he succeeded in fooling you, making your prayers, fasting and knowledge of religion etc a self worship and hidden polytheism!
Allah says, 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?
Yes, you can fool yourself by saying brother brother there is an ayah and daleel, yes, you may follow ayah and daleel like every 72 sects, who cares?
Lakum deenukum waliya deen.
To you is your way, to me is my way.

“Who listen to speech and follow the best of it. Those are the ones Allah has guided, and those are people of understanding.
Ulool Albaab are those who are guided by Allah, undoubtedly they are Awliya Allah (the friends of Allah/Saints of Allah)
They are those who Listen to the Speech and Obey those who speak them , it is therefore clear evident that Ulool Albaab is a group with in “ulool Amri”
It is they who say: “We hear and we obey.” (Quran 2:285)
They are the Creed of Imams of the Main Body: Quran 4:59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you.
The best of speech is “La ilaha illa Allah Muhammadu Rasoolullahi (swalla Allahu alaihi wa sallam).
So it is obvious that “Ulool Albaab” is those who follow the “Kalima tawheed” , they are the leaders of Ahlu Zikr (the people of Zikr/Remembrance, See Quran 2:269 below)
They are not the people who comes with a Diploma of Islam!. Allah and His Prophets never giving diploma of Islam, from the time of Adam (A.S) until Last Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam!.
We cannot see, in the first three pious generations (Salafu Saalih), a Sahabi with a Diploma or PhD, or the Imams of the schools of Jurisprudence giving Diploma of Islam.
We never have heard, Imam Ahmad Bin Hanbal (M.A, PhD), or Imam Ibn Hajar Asqalani (MSc ,PhD), those who claim they are following Ahlu Sunna and are free from all types of innovations, are in the forefront of giving Diplomas of Islam!
So following Salaf according to whom?, According to Salafs or according to some false claimants?!
He gives wisdom to whom He wills, and whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given much good. And none will remember except those of understanding.
The best remembrance (Zikr) is the Zikr of Ulool Albaab (the Inheritors of tawheed and Prophetic Knowledge).
The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “I am the City of Knowledge and Ali is the Door”.
In another Hadith it is said: “Beware the vision of a true believer, for he sees with the Light of Allah”.
ULOOL ALBAAB AND AHLUL BAYTH:
Ulool Albaab and the way of Remembrance (Tariqah of Ahl Zikr) originated from the descendants of the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam). The Straight Path is preserved with Imams and Shaykhs of Ahlul bayth, who are the bearers of the Prophetic Succession.
Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Wahhabi publications)
Hadith Number 3788: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me” (Sahih
Surah 13. Ar-Ra’d, Ayah 19
۞ أَفَمَنْ يَعْلَمُ أَنَّمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ الْحَقُّ كَمَنْ هُوَ أَعْمَىٰ ۚ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ Then is he who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? They will only be reminded who are people of understanding –
Comments: Ulool Albaab and their followers are only guided. They are people who follow pious Imams and Shaykhs of the defined creed by Allah and His Messenger (alaihiswalathu wa salam).
Those who follow their own ego or follow those ones who follow their ego cannot be Ulool Albaab. Because Allah and His Messenger (alaihiswalathu wa salam) clearly commanded in the Quran and Hadith, whom you should follow and how you should follow!
Allah says;Quran 45:23 Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil? So who will guide him after Allah ? Then will you not be reminded?
So it is very clearly stated that those who are just learnt something from College.Masjid or University cannot be “ulool albaab”. There are many scholars in the Book version of Quran and Hadith, the Quran is not counting them as legitimate scholars of religion of Allah!.
There are many Christian and Jew scholars of the external books of Islam, who use their knowledge to harm Muslims!
This [Qur’an] is notification for the people that they may be warned thereby and that they may know that He is but one God and that those of understanding will be reminded.
This verse states that Quran is a Warning for the people. But many people does not understand the wisdom behind the warning, except those who have spiritual understanding.
Because, they are [Quran 2:3] “Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them”,
Surah 38. Sad, Ayah 29
كِتَابٌ أَنْزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ لِيَدَّبَّرُوا آيَاتِهِ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ
[This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.
It is their path we must follow, the Path of people of Perfect Zikr (Ulool Albaab)
Allah says: [Quran 1:7] The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.
Quran 39:9 Is one who is devoutly obedient during periods of the night, prostrating and standing [in prayer], fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his Lord, [like one who does not]? Say, “Are those who know equal to those who do not know?” Only they will remember [who are] people of understanding.
Here, the Knowledge refers to “Spiritual knowledge” (See Sura Al Kahf 18:65), otherwise this verses become meaningless, because, you can see competitive scholars of External Books of Islam (Quran ,Hadith) in all the different sects!
Quran 3:7 He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book: in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical seeking discordand searching for its hidden meanings but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah and those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord”; and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding.
In the past centuries, people sought hidden knowledge from the great Shaykhs, which they denied to give to this people, and who discorded from the Al Jamah and turned into different heretical sects!. The “People of Spiritual Understanding” (ulool albaab) will not give knowledge to those who cannot understand it!. Today their followers harbor malice against Awliya Allah and Ahlul Bayth, because of this distension from the obedience to “Ulool Albaab” and their jealousy and malice against them!.
The Jews were notorious in the time of nabi Isa Ibn Maryam (A.S), today you can see, same attributes in the misguided sects who behave like Pharisees (Jewish priests at the time of Isa alaihissalam).
If you are guided sects, then call your “Ulool albaab” to us, and let’s see who are truthful!
No one take a five year old child to practical anatomy class or to fight in Army to kill another one. Knowledge is given to those who are mature in understanding , and by the Permission of Allah.
The Quran (Word of Allah) is the Book related to all affairs. It is not for everyone to understand everything that is mentioned in the Quran, but understanding of the affairs goes to those who are in authority on earth. See Sura Al Qadr (97:4).
It is clearly stated in Hadith, that those who seek Al Qadr, will become heretics!
THE INHERITORS OF TAWHEED IN THE LINE OF ALLAH-ANGELS-PROPHETS-AND PEOPLE OF KNOWLEDGE:
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.
THE PEOPLE OF BAI’AH (PLEDGE):
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.
THEY ARE NOT ON THE PAYROLL OF THEIR FOLLOWERS:
Quran 36:21 Follow those who do not ask of you [any] payment, and they are [rightly] guided.
Quran 9:119 O you who have believed, fear Allah and be with those who are true.
ULOOL ALBAAB-THE LEADERS OF AL JAMAH:
Quran 3:103And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you (Also See Quran 1:7]– when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided.
People claim to be Ahlu Sunna Wal jamah, just because they follow the Madhab of they follow a creed different to Shia’ism!. They claim to be ahlu sunnah wal jamah because they are based on some worldly institutions under some external scholars!. Quran reject such false claims!
This is a totally nonsense understanding of “Al Jamah” of Ahlu Sunnah!
According to the Book of Allah, Ahlu Sunnah are those upon Spiritual fellowship!
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!
Hadith Number 3713, Jami At-Tirmidhi Vol 6, Darussalam Publications (Saudi Wahhabi Publications)The Position of Imam Ali (A.S) in Islam:
Abu Sariha, or Zaid bin Arqam -Shu’bah had doubt -narrated , from the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam): “For Whomever I am his Mawla then Ali is his Mawla.” (Sahih)
“Hassan and Hussain are the chiefs of the youth of Paradise”- Sahih ,Tirmidhi
“Abu Bakar and Umar are the leaders of the elders of the Paradise” Tirmidhi
They have Abu Bakar Siddiq (R.A) Umar (R.A) Usman (R.A), Imam Ali (R.A), Imam Hassan (R.A), Imam Hussain (R.A) as their leaders, and Pious Shaykhs from the Ahlul Bayth who follow this Creed as stated.
So everyone’s heart is busy with their masters and leaders, some are busy with false leaders, and false Imams, some people’s heart are busy with their own self, their wife, their wives, children or wealth!
The People of Spiritual brotherhood:
Sahih Muslim: Abu Huraira (R.A) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace and blessing be upon him) observed: You shall not enter Paradise so long as you do not affirm belief (in all those things which are the articles of faith)and you will not believe as long as you do not love one another. Should I not direct you to a thing which, if you do, will foster love amongst you: (i. e.) give currency to (the practice of paying salutation to one another by saying) as-salamu alaikum. (Book 1, Hadith 96)
ULOOL ALBAAB: SELFLESS LOVERS
There are many scholars, who preach but does not practice what they preach!. Selfless love for the Muslim brothers is one of the attributes of Ulool Albaab (People of Spiritual understanding).
They represent:” Rahmatan lil Alameen”, being Kind and Merciful to whole world!
They are the legitimate leaders and scholars of this religion!
Allah says: Sura 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.
So it is not about how much you know from books, or from a University professor or from Masjid Mufti!. But Allah is Looking at your heart, not at your intellectual knowledge or certificates or man made titles!
How much you are sincere to Allah, to His Messenger (s.a.w) to the leaders of the Muslims, how much love you have to your Muslim brother. It’s not about saying: brother bradher in the street today, and tomorrow you see the same person and you don’t remember seeing him yesterday!
Today’s book scholars, not even spreading salams unless they are greeted first!. Their ego became their god and you are taking this ones as leaders, who worship to their own ego!. And you are praying behind those who worship their ego, beside Allah?
ULOOL ALBAAB-THE GROUP THAT ARE ATTENDED BY SPIRIT AND ANGELS: [also see 3:18]
The heavenly supported group:
Quran 97:4 The angels and the Spirit descend thereinby permission of their Lordfor every matter.
Angels and Holy Spirit is not descending to nothing in this world. They are descending to the Ulool ALbaab, to Ulool Ilmi, to Ulool Amri.
Because, Man is the Khalifa (Representative of Allah) on Earth!.
Quran 2:30 And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority.”
The Prophetic and Saintly Lineage of Ulool Ilmi (People of Wisdom): Quran 2:31 And He taught Adam all the names,then showed them to the angels, saying: Inform Me of the names of these, if ye are truthful.
Quran18:65:And they found a servant from among Our servants to whom we had given mercy from us and had taught him from Us a [certain] knowledge.
THIS LINEAGE IS PRESERVED UNTIL THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT IN AN UNBROKEN CHAIN:
Quran 4:59O you who have believed, obeyAllah and obey the Messenger and those in authorityamong you
THE CHOSEN ONES: Quran 3:33 Indeed, Allah chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of ‘Imran over the worlds –
Sahih Muslim Book 35, Number 6505: Abu Huraira (R.A) reported Allah’s (SWT) Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying Allah (SWT) 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 (SWT)) 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 (SWT), 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 (SWT)), uttering Thine Greatness (saying Allah (SWT) o-Akbar) and uttering Thine Oneness (La ilaha ill Allah (SWT)) 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. –
Sunan Ibn Majah: 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
The Best Zikr: (See Quran 39:18, read by giving importance to highlighted): Sunan Ibn Majah: 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
Only in Sufi Tariqah, we have today, in an unbroken lineage to the Holy Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam. The Way of Ulool Amri, Ulool Ilmi and Ulool Albaab.
This sufficient for a believer who learnt in external subjects to understand which is the Straight Path. Opening a Masjid or becoming a community leader, or becoming an Aalim of some books does not make someone guided. Run to seek guided ones, Run to the ways of the Friends of God.
Remember that all 73 sects are reading same Quran , attending Masjids, praying, fasting, going for Hajj, doing many good deeds, many from all these sects are very good people in their outward deeds.
But one has to fix their hears and Purify their Soul. The way of Purification (Tazkiya) only preserved for the people in the way of Awliya Allah (friends of God).
Allah says: [Quran 91:9-10] He has succeeded who purifies it,And he will indeed fail who corrupts it.
“…Beware, in the body there is a piece of flesh; if it is sound, the whole body is sound and if it is corrupt the whole body is corrupt, and hearken it is the heart. (Sahih Muslim Book 10, Hadith 3882)
So be with them, follow them, those who purify the heart with much remembrance of Allah!
Don’t be a fool, don’t remain in the Masjid Ziraarand ways of double standard and hypocrisy, that accept some and reject other parts of the religion of Allah!
Allah says in Quran: 9:107 And [there are] those [hypocrites] who took for themselves a mosque for causing harm and disbelief and division among the believers and as a station for whoever had warred against Allah and His Messenger before. And they will surely swear, “We intended only the best.” And Allah testifies that indeed they are liars.
May Allah Guide us into the Straight Path, the Path of Ulool Amri, Ulool Ilmi and Ulool Albaab,ameen.
Wa salamun alal Mursaleen walhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen.
