Hadith on Kissing hand and feet of the Pious

KISSING HAND AND FEET OF PIOUS:

 
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
 
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!

Why following the people of Tasawwuf (Sufism) is Obligatory?

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.

Naqshbandi Principle: Awareness of breath(Hosh dar dam)

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

HE LOOKS AT HIMSELF OR HE LOOKS AT THE HIDDEN SHIRK IN YOU Quran 25:43 and 45:23, the idols you placed therein (heart)
HE LOOKS AT HIMSELF
OR HE LOOKS AT THE HIDDEN SHIRK IN YOU
Quran 25:43 and 45:23, the idols you placed therein (heart)

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

Madad Ya Al Haqqani Madad Ya Sahibu Saif, Madad Ya Ambiya Wa Awliya Allah

There are eight Naqshbandi Principles formulated by the Imam  of the Khwajagan (early Naqshabndi Silsila) order , Hazret Shaykh Abdul Khaliq Ghujdavani (Q.S) and three other principles formulated by the Imam of the Tariqah Khwajah Muhammad Baha’uddin Naqshbandi Al-Uwaisi Al-Bukhari (Q.S).

They are:

1-Hosh Dar Dam (Awareness of breath), 2-Nazar Bar Qadam (Watching the step), 3-Safar dar Watan (Journey in the Spiritual Path) , 4-Khalwat Dar Anjuman (Solitude in the Society) , 5-Yad Kard (Reminding outwardly and inwardly of God’s Name), 6-Baz Gasht (return to the responsibilities of a person according to  Shari’ah after performing pure Zikr), 7-Concentration on God (Yaddasht), 8-Nigadasht (Guarding one’s spiritual state) 

Other three Principles taught by Khwajah Shah Baha’uddin Naqshbandi (Q.S) as an additional three methods of training the students were:

9-Awareness of time (Wuquf E Zamani, 10-Counting the Zikr repetitions (Wuquf e Adadi), 11-Constant Attachment of Heart to God (Wuquf E Qalbi)

In this article I am inspired to write about: Awareness of breath(Hosh dar dam)

 Awareness of breath(Hosh dar dam):

Consciousness of breathing (Hosh Dar dam) means to safeguard the breath from entering into heedless station and inclinations. According to Imam of Khatamul Khwajagan, Hazret Abdul Khaliq Ghujdevani, the seekers who are serious in the path must observe his breath from all forms of notions of the bodily desires and direct his breathing toward’s God Consciousness. Every breath that is inhaled and exiled must circulate through the cells of body must be occupied with the Divine Presence in it. The breathing that is is inhaled and exhaled without God’s Presence in it leads to heedlessness and death of the heart.  This is the summary of Hazret Abdul Khaliq Ghujdevani (q.s)’s teaching on the awareness of breath.

Comments : God Almighty has placed a divine breath in every human being when he is formed in the womb of the mother and the soul is placed in the fetus by the Angel, that make the connection between the breath of the mother, the breath of the infant in the womb and connect with the heart of the mother with the heart of the child and make the spirit enter in it. A seeker by constantly safeguarding his breath from heedlessness unveils that earliest divine breath in his spirit to be discovered and reaching to recognize his own soul and his rank in the divine presence and his relationship with his Lord. By recollecting this Divine Breath in him , the seeker is able to find the Divine Sustenance (Rizq) that is bestowed by his Lord during his creation in his womb.

Allah says :[15:29]And when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul, then fall down to him in prostration.”

The Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam said:

On the authority of Abdullah ibn Masood (ra), who said:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), and he is the truthful, the believed, narrated to us, “Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother’s womb for forty days in the form of a nutfah (a drop), then he becomes an alaqah (clot of blood) for a like period, then a mudghah (morsel of flesh) for a like period, then there is sent to him the angel who blows his soul into him and who is commanded with four matters: to write down his rizq (sustenance), his life span, his actions, and whether he will be happy or unhappy (i.e., whether or not he will enter Paradise). By the One, other than Whom there is no deity, verily one of you performs the actions of the people of Paradise until there is but an arms length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him, and so he acts with the actions of the people of the Hellfire and thus enters it; and verily one of you performs the actions of the people of the Hellfire, until there is but an arms length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him and so he acts with the actions of the people of Paradise and thus he enters it.” [Bukhari & Muslim]
The Prophet Isa Son of Maryam (peace be upon them) were bestowed by Allah the Power to regenerate that breathe into make creation by Allah’s Will.

Allah says: (Quran 5:11)

[The Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, remember My favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the Pure Spirit and you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and [remember] when I taught you writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you designed from clay [what was] like the form of a bird with My permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with My permission; and you healed the blind and the leper with My permission; and when you brought forth the dead with My permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from [killing] you when you came to them with clear proofs and those who disbelieved among them said, “This is not but obvious magic.”
Prophet Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him)’s breathe was protected even before his birth. The Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam says:
Sahih Bukhari: Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “When any human being is born. Satan touches him at both sides of the body with his two fingers, except Jesus, the son of Mary, whom Satan tried to touch but failed, for he touched the placenta-cover instead.”  (Book 54, Hadith 506)
Mary (Peace be upon her) mother of Isa (alaihissalam), was also a protected woman,a woman whom Allah chosen over all other women. She remains highest in sainthood among woman. Her breathe was also protected by Allah Almighty even before her birth.
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “During your sleep, Satan knots three knots at the back of the head of each of you, and he breathes the following words at each knot, ‘The night is, long, so keep on sleeping,’ If that person wakes up and celebrates the praises of Allah, then one knot is undone, and when he performs ablution the second knot is undone, and when he prays, all the knots are undone, and he gets up in the morning lively and in a good mood, otherwise he gets up dull and gloomy. ”  (Book 54, Hadith 491)
Quran 21:91 And (remember) her who guarded her chastity: We breathed into her of Our spirit, and We made her and her son a sign for all peoples.
Allah says: [3:42] And [mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds.
YAWNING:
For the reason of Safeguarding the breathe, Allah’s Messenger forbid Yawning, because it is through heedless breathing that the seeker may enter in egoistic stations.
Sahih Bukhari:  Narrated Abu Huraira(R.A): The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam)said, “yawning is from Satan and if anyone of you yawns, he should check his yawning as much as possible, for if anyone of you (during the act of yawning) should say: ‘Ha’, Satan will laugh at him.”  (Book 54, Hadith 509)
Sahih Bukhari,Narrated Abu Huraira(R.A): The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said, “Allah loves sneezing but dislikes yawning; so if anyone of you sneezes and then praises Allah, every Muslim who hears him (praising Allah) has to say Tashmit to him. But as regards yawning, it is from Satan, so if one of you yawns, he should try his best to stop it, for when anyone of you yawns, Satan laughs at him.” (Book 73, Hadith 245)
This is enough evidence for the importance of conscious breathing and an evidence against those who oppose the exalted Naqshbandi Principle.

Therefore the Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam says:

On the authority of Abu Muhammad Abdullah bin ’Amr bin al-’Aas (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “None of you [truly] believes until his desires are subservient to that which I have brought.” [Imam an-Nawawi says:] We have related it in Kitab al-Hujjah with a saheeh chain of narrators.

Holding fast to Naqshbandi Way helps a seeker to follow the Quran and Sunnah with it’s most correct and purest form and the Naqshbandi Way explains and make it easy to understand the followers the correct way of Islam. The Shaykhs helping the seeker and training the followers in all the aspects of life which must be according to Quran and Sunnah.

The Shaykh  (Saint of Allah) can know the state of a seeker by observing the breath of his follower. Whether the murid is near of far.

The Shaykhs are the heirs of the Prophets (hadith), because they sees with the Light of Allah (Hadith)

Allah says:  [12:94] And when the caravan departed [from Egypt], their father said, “Indeed, I find the smell of Joseph [and would say that he was alive] if you did not think me weakened in mind.”

This are some of the examples of the Divine Breathing into the Chosen Souls. It is said that that one breathe of the Saint is enough to guide whole mankind, because it is the living breath, the breath that give life to the dead.

Shah Baha’uddin Naqshbandi (Q.S) said: “The foundation of this way is upon conscious breathing, so it is a must for the followers of this to safeguard his breathe in inhalation and exhalation, as well as to safeguard it in it’s intervals.

The breathing reach in every cells, to the heart to the brain and brings an impact in the internal and external organs.
It is said that: Satan moves in the body of human where his blood circulates.

It is also said that: The heart, if it is pure, the person is pure, if it is corrupt the person is corrupt.

Quran:91:910 He has succeeded who purifies it, And he has failed who instills it [with corruption].

Therefore we can see that there is a direct relationship between Purification and Breathing.

Different types of emotions also affect one’s breathing, when a person sees the majesty of Allah in a Creation, like a Tsunami or a landslide, or a motor accident, he take a deep breathe and remember God and inhale the name of God with such an emotion.

A man who stare at a beautiful woman takes an evil breathe and may cause him to send the waves of lust and forbidden desires and cause him to get in the trap of evil.

A person who sees a wild animal coming behind to chase him, takes another form of breath and produce the adrenaline and hormones related to that breathing and making him to safeguard his steps and make him defend or run away for safety.

The significance of breathing can be seen in all aspects. Since the 11 Naqshbandi principles are inter-related,Awareness of consistent Breathing and Watching the Steps are very near to each other.

So the Murid must avoid the company of those who take false breathing, if he were with others, then he must observe Khalwat Dar Anjuman (Solitude from the Society) in order to preserve his breathe.

One who sincerely follow the Shaykh, the Shaykh help the seeker to open his breathing , so he constantly remembers God in the Heart , in mind and in spirit.

It is the opening of that divine breathe which bring the Fayda (Spiritual flow) and gives inspiration to the Seeker when he/she progress into the higher levels.
So if someone want to know what is coming from his ego and what is coming from Shaykh, then let him observe his breathing.

WHEN THE BREATHING AND ZIKR COMES TOGETHER:

It is evident that the people who are perfected their Zikr are the People of paradise. Someone asked Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam, whether the inhabitants of the people are known or not. The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: They are known.

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).  

Sahih Muslim Jabir reported: I heard Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying that the inmates of Paradise would eat and drink but would neither spit, nor pass water, nor void excrement, nor suffer catarrah. It was said: Then, what would happen with food? Thereupon he said: They would belch and sweat (and it would be over with their food), and their sweat would be that of musk and they would glorify and praise Allah as easily as you breathe.  (Book 40, Hadith 6798)

Sahih Muslim: Jabir b. Abdullah reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said that the inmates of Paradise would eat therein and they would also drink, but they would neither void excrement, nor suffer catarrh, nor pass water, and their eating (would be digested) in the form of belching and their sweat would be musk aged they would glorify and praise Allah as easily ai you breathe.  (Book 40, Hadith 6800)

So from the above hadiths (the three hadiths altogether) should make you understand the who are the people of salvation, you must follow them. Follow the Ahlu Zikr (people of Zikr) for they are those who do Zikr just as they breathe.

It is narrated to me by a Qadiri Sufi, that Hazret Muhyiddin Abdul Qadir Al-Jilani (Q.S) said: “Hypocrites cannot call upon my name and Allah’s name 1000 times in one stand”

Is narrated that Ali (R.A) have said: “mostly one’s  Imaan (faith) departs in the time of death”-Al Jawaaahirul Ajeeba , daqa’iqul akhbaar (Quoted)

It is the time, a person find hard to safeguard his breath and Satan try to trick him in that time of great trial!

I remember one time, the night (Saturday, in shaban 2012) when my Shaykh Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi Ar-Rabbani (Q.S) passed away, I saw my Grand Shaykh Hazret Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani Ar-Rabbani (Q.S), I was sleeping on the floor in my home (as a guest occupied my bed who were staying with us since Friday), I saw myself standing in the presence of Sultanul Awliya, who told me: “You should continue the work of Osmanli Naqshbandi Haqqani Tarikat and Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi , he mentioned both Shaykh abdul Kerim and the name of the Order (Osmanli Naqshbandi Haqqani tariqat), then Mawlana Shaykh Nazim took a White turban from him and which is tied on a green cap and put it in my head, as soon he put that in my head, a kind of heavy inhalation came to my chest with so much power , in that heavy inhalation of breathing I woke up suddenly, though that night I was fell sleep with weeping and agony, due to the passing away of Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim AR-Rabbani (Q.S)

This are one the examples of the breathing that passes from Prophets and Awliya Allah. When Jibreel (A.S) meeting Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam in Mountain, holding Prophet tightly as if squeezing him into angel Gabriel (A.S), the Prophet (alaihiswalaathu wa salam) body become sick in the next days.

This are the various explanation of the Naqshbandi principle of awareness breathe with day today examples that relate the reader to understand and observe what is it the importance of breathing and safeguarding it in order to progress in this way.

So do not ask me, if it is ok to smoke Cigarette , our Way teach even polluting the nature also a blame worthy deed!

This articles (Naqshbandi Principles) are written on an inspiration by the support of my Shaykhs, this is not a complete article,rather it is only a brief note, but it guides a person to the real principles that are experienced differently by person to person.

Islamic Morals and Manners Give you Success in the Tarikat

1175659_579157008811277_1044720581_n
Saint of Islam Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al–Kibrisi (Q.S) Wali of Allah

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

To be a murid, you need to have Adab, you need to have manners. Everything starts opening to a man who has manners. The more opens to him the more obedient he becomes to his Sheykh then. He can see the Paradises, he can enter and come back, but he will never leave his Sheykh then because what he is looking for is not even in Paradise. It is in his Sheykh’s hand and nobody else carries that.

Today Sufism, tariqat becomes people’s running to have some entertainment. Some are running to have some comfort. Some are already fed up with the outside world and they are getting old. They are tired of sitting home and so they are running to tariqat. This is the mentality of today’s tariqat. But did tariqats change and did Sheykhs lose that power?

No. They still have it. They are circling around this world and they are checking people. You may be sitting next to him for twenty years and you may get nothing. He is circling in the world, he is looking and he says, “This one has good behavior.” He gives it to that one and walks away. He never finishes. The more he gives the more comes. But can you give diamond to the hand of an ignorant person? Can you take a diamond and throw it in front of a pig? What is he going to do with it?

So first you have to know what the treasure is. You have to know what you are looking for. And to get that you have to know what you have to sacrifice. You have to sacrifice something. Everyone has to sacrifice something. If you are not sacrificing it means that you are not really ready and prepared to get what is there. You just want it for your own ego.

So yes, in tariqat sometimes Sheykhs show the people the most luxurious life and sometimes they show them the worst lifestyle that people are going through. You have to go through it to understand. You may be with the Sheykh one week and you will be living like a king and the next week you will be living like a beggar in the street. Sheykh
has the right to tell you, “Let’s go, we are going outside now to start begging from people.”

Huh, what will you do then? If you have no submission, what are you going to do? You are going to say, “He is a thief. Is he trying to teach me how to steal or to ask from people?”

So submission comes with everything you have. You no longer have your own ideas of thinking and understanding. If you cannot think the way that the Sheykh is directing you then it is forbidden for you to think and to try to analyze things by your own self because you are going to come to the wrong understanding. Sheytan is going to be there. So your Sheykh is not there. Sheytan is going to be your Sheykh. And you are still going to say, “He is my Sheykh.” But no. Sheytan is your Sheykh. Sheytan is giving you directions then.

– SahibulSaif Sheykh Abd Kerim Effendi Hz

Foot Note:
Good morals and manners alone does not make anyone Sufi or inheritor of the spiritual lineage of the Sufi Path. One must have a true Sufi Shaykh and should be sincere to his/her Shaykh.
May Allah help us in this strive ..ameen

‘Umar ibn al-Khattab said:

As we sat one day with the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace), a man in pure white clothing and jet black hair came to us, without a trace of travelling upon him, though none of us knew him.

He sat down before the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) bracing his knees against his, resting his hands on his legs, and said: “Muhammad, tell me about Islam.” The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: “Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and to perform the prayer, give zakat, fast in Ramadan, and perform the pilgrimage to the House if you can find a way.”

He said: “You have spoken the truth,” and we were surprised that he should ask and then confirm the answer. Then he said: “Tell me about true faith (iman),” and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: “It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His inspired Books, His messengers, the Last Day, and in destiny, its good and evil.”

“You have spoken the truth,” he said, “Now tell me about the perfection of faith (ihsan),” and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: “It is to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you see Him not, He nevertheless sees you.”

He said: “Now tell me about the Hour.” The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: “The one who is asked about it does knows no more than the questioner.”

He said: “Then tell me about its signs.” The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace answered: “That a slave girl shall give birth to her mistress, and that you see barefoot, naked, destitute shepherds vying to build tall buildings.”

Then the visitor left. I waited a long while, and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said to me, “Do you know, ‘Umar, who was the questioner?” and I replied, “Allah and His messenger know best.” He said,

“It was Gabriel, who came to you to teach you your religion” (Sahih Muslim, 1.37: hadith 8).

Allah says:
To Enter in Islam,Iman and Ihsan completely:
2:208 O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.

To follow the spiritual aid (the way of Righteous Imams) in the way of Truth:
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.

4:59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you.

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).”

To Abandon scholars and leaders who are without Imams and are following their 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?

And to follow the Truthful Imams:
يَوْمَ نَدْعُواْ كُلَّ أُنَاسٍ بِإِمَـمِهِمْ

17:71 And remember) the Day when We shall call together all human beings with their (respective) Imam), which is that it refers to the Book (or record) of their deeds. This was also the view of Abu Al-`Aliyah, Al-Hasan and Ad-Dahhak. This view is the most correct, because Allah says:

وَكُلَّ شىْءٍ أَحْصَيْنَـهُ فِى إِمَامٍ مُّبِينٍ

and all things We have recorded with numbers (as a record) in a Clear Book Fi Imamin Mubin 36:12
(Tafsir Ibn Kathir-A Salafi Tafsir)

“Fear God and accompany Trustworthy people” [9:119]

So only when you fear Allah and accompany Trustworthy, you are guided, Allah says:
Quran 2:2 This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah;

Prophet (S.A.W) said: “Whosoever dies without recognizing the Imam of his time dies the death of the ignorance (Jahiliyyah).”

Ahmad b. Hanbal, al-Musnad, p. 96.

They are the inheritors of Pure Tawheed:
Quran 3:18 There is no god but He: That is the witness of Allah, His angels, and those endued with knowledge, standing firm on justice. There is no god but He, the Exalted in Power, the Wise

To be sincere to the leaders of the Muslims (righteous Imams-Ulool ilm 3:18 and righteous in authority-4:59) and their folk:
On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari that the prophet said:

“Religion is sincerity”. We said: “To whom?” He said: “To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk”.
narrated by Muslim

And to Obey,Love and Respect Awliya Allah:
On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: the messenger of Allah said:

Allah the Almighty has said: “Who soever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.”
related by Bukhari.

Anything More is not Religion of Allah:

Prophet (s.a.w) said: Whoever imitates a people is one of them.” (Ahmad & Abu Dawood)

“You will imitate the nations before you very closely to the extent that if they went into a lizard’s hole, you would enter it as well” his companions, may Allaah be pleased with them, inquired: “(Do you mean) the Jews and Christians, O Messenger of Allaah?” Hesallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam replied: “Who else?” (Bukhaari & Muslim).

The Prophet (S.A.W) said: “The Day of Judgment will not come until my Nation closely imitates the nations before them.” It was asked: “Like the Persians and Romans, Messenger of Allaah?” He sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam replied:”Who are the nations (I could mean) except those?” (Bukhaari).

So that you may be guided and not to be drowned!

Question and Answer on Sufism-1

Question:

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.. May peace & blessings of Allah upon our beloved Prophet (SAS)

Dear brother,
you gave me vast information.thanks for your kind help. how many days i have to recite 1000 x Salawat to Prophet (PBUH).
where r u right now, in India or UK?

thanks n rgds

ANSWER:

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
You can make intention to recite 40 days and see how it goes, and if you have dream of any Shaykh coming to you/to your home/you making bayat/or giving you some advise/giving you something in your hand
then you must follow that one and accept that shaykh with full heart and accept the zikr he give to you…

tarikat is not membership business…

Like other groups and other tarikat and other murids in every tarikat, I do not do membership business in tarkat

But if you wish to follow from your deep heart without doubt or second thought , Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S) and be in part of the Jama’th of Waliyullahi Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) I can initiate you to Naqshbandi Tarikat…

I ask you to recite Salawat Nabi, for you to have an assurance about the Shaykhs, before coming to this way..
Whoever I met in my life, have come to this way, including so many murids and some khadims of other Shaykhs….
except tijani people, because their tarikat has a unusual rule that, you cannot be part of other tarikat or cannot attend zikr or salawat of other tarikat or other groups…

but our way says, “Whoever invite you to something good (i.e to remember Allah and make Salawat on Prophet) then accept invitation (Hadith)

It might be a rule of Tijani Tarikat, but I do not accept such rules especially in this time of Fitnah, where people shall attend wherever there is a Zikr Majlis, if possible…

And Allah says in Quran: “Who can forbidden for you those things what Allah has made lawful for you?”

So, to follow Tarikat means to follow Quran and Sunnah according to the understanding of Muttaqin..(Zalikal Kitabu La raiba feeh, Hudan lil muttaqin), this is very important….

All misguided sects and the saved sects reading same Quran and Hadith books

but guided one follow the understanding of the Muttaqin(2:2), Imams of the Salaf (the best people are my generation,then those after them and those after them-Hadith), “Mujaddid” of every century (Abu Dawud, Kitab Al Malhama) and those who are in authority among you (4:59)

And they have Assurance(Yaqeen) from their LORD…

But the other sects leaders, they have no spiritual lineage no assurance, no foundation…
Other sects founded in colleges,universities and from worldly certifications…

the foundation of our way is unbroken spiritual chain and family lineage to Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam)

Wa Salam alaikum Wa Rahmathu Allahi wa Barakathu hu
