Urs of Hzrt Imaam Abu Hanfi (R.A)

Urs Sharif is on 2nd Sha’ban 1438 Hijri

This is on Saturday 29th April 2017

Abū Ḥanīfa al-Nuʿmān b. Thābit b. Zūṭā b. Marzubān (Arabic: أبو حنيفة نعمان بن ثابت بن زوطا بن مرزبان‎‎, Persian: ابوحنیفه‎‎), known as Abū Ḥanīfa for short or reverently as Imam Abū Ḥanīfa by Sunni Muslims, was the founder of the Sunni Hanafi school of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence). He is also considered a renowned Islamic scholar and personality by Zaydi Shia Muslims.He is often called “The Great Imam” (Arabic: ألإمام الأعظم‎, translit. al-imām al-aʿẓam‎).

Childhood

Abū Ḥanīfah was born in the city of Kufa in Iraq,during the reign of the Umayyadcaliph Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan. His father, Thabit bin Zuta, a trader from Kabul, Afghanistan, was 40 years old at the time of Abū Ḥanīfah’s birth.

His ancestry is generally accepted as being of Persian origin as suggested by the etymology of the names of his grandfather (Zuta) and great-grandfather (Mah). The historian Al-Khatib al-Baghdadi records a statement from Imām Abū Ḥanīfah’s grandson, Ismail bin Hammad, who gave Abū Ḥanīfah’s lineage as Thabit bin Numan bin Marzban and claiming to be of Persian origin.The discrepancy in the names, as given by Ismail of Abū Ḥanīfah’s grandfather and great-grandfather, are thought to be due to Zuta’s adoption of the Arabic name (Numan) upon his acceptance of Islam and that Mah and Marzban were titles or official designations in Persia, with the latter, meaning a margrave, referring to the noble ancestry of Abū Ḥanīfah’s family as the Sasanian Marzbans (equivalent of margraves) of Kabul (Modern day Afghanistan). Those stories maintain for his ancestors having been slaves purchased by some Arab benefactor are, therefore, untenable and seemingly fabricated. There is a discussion[] on being of Turkic or Persian origin.But the widely accepted opinion, however, is that most probably he was of Persian ancestry from Kabul.

Adulthood and death


Abu Hanifa Mosque (Baghdad)

Abu Hanifa Mosque in Baghdad, Iraq

In 763, al-Mansur, the Abbasid monarch offered Abu Hanifa the post of Chief Judge of the State, but he declined the offer, choosing to remain independent. His student Abu Yusuf was later appointed Qadi Al-Qudat (Chief Judge of the State) by the next Caliph Harun al-Rashid.

In his reply to al-Mansur, Abū Ḥanīfah said that he was not fit for the post. Al-Mansur, who had his own ideas and reasons for offering the post, lost his temper and accused Abū Ḥanīfah of lying.

“If I am lying,” Abū Ḥanīfah said, “then my statement is doubly correct. How can you appoint a liar to the exalted post of a Chief Qadi (Judge)?”

Incensed by this reply, the ruler had Abū Ḥanīfah arrested, locked in prison and tortured. He was never fed nor cared for.Even there, the jurist continued to teach those who were permitted to come to him.

In 767, Abū Ḥanīfah died in prison. The cause of his death is not clear, as some say that Abū Ḥanīfah issued a legal opinion for bearing arms against Al-Mansur, and the latter had him poisoned. It was said that so many people attended his funeral that the funeral service was repeated six times for more than 50,000 people who had amassed before he was actually buried. On the authority of the historian al-Khatib, it can be said that for full twenty days people went on performing funeral prayer for him. Later, after many years, the Abū Ḥanīfah Mosque was built in the Adhamiyah neighbourhood of Baghdad.

The tomb of Abū Ḥanīfah and the tomb of Abdul Qadir Gilani were destroyed by Shah Ismail of Safavi empire in 1508. In 1533, Ottomans reconquered Iraq and rebuilt the tomb of Abū Ḥanīfah and other Sunni sites.

Shab-e-Me`raj – The Isra and Mi’raj – Night Journey- Rajab 1438 Hijri

 

20140527-212154-76914875

This is on the Night of 27th Rajab 1438H.
This will be the night of Monday 24th April 2017
(Depending on the Lunar date of your country).

Isra & Mi’raj

The Isra and Mi’raj (Arabic: الإسراء والمعراج‎, al-’Isrā’ wal-Mi‘rāj) are the two parts of a Night Journey  called Shab-e-Me`raj, that, according to islamic tradition, the Final Prophet (Peace be upon them) took during a single night around the year 621. It has been described as both a physical and spiritual journey. A brief sketch of the story is in Sura 17 Al-Isra of the Quran, and other details come from the Hadith, collections of the reports of the teachings, deeds and sayings of the blessed Prophet  Muhammad (Peace be upon them). In the Isra part of the journey, Propeht  Muhammad (Peace be upon them) travel on the steed Buraq to “The furthermost Mosque” where he leads other prophets in prayer. He then ascends to heaven in the Mi’raj journey where he speaks to Allah, who gives Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon them) instructions to take back to the faithful regarding the details of prayer.

According to traditions, the journey is associated with the Lailat al Mi’raj, as one of the most significant events in the Islamic Calendar.

Hzrt Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A) annual Urs- RAJAB 2017

Hzrt Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A)  annual Urs, is celebrated on the 25th & 26th of Rajab,

This year Urs sharif  falls on approx Sunday 23rd April 2017

According to the references available in the authentic historical sources it is evident that a small batch of pious followers had escorted Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty on his religious mission to India. Their number is said to be around forty and one of them was Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Ahmed Gudezi (R.A.) also known as Maulana Ahmad.

When Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin proceeded for India, his Peer-o-Murshid (spiritual mentor) Hazrat Khwaja Usman Haruni asked him to take one of his blood relations and followers, Hazrat Khwaja Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A.) along with him. Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi, the Khadim-e-khas would attend to Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) always, therefore he and his descendants the present khadim community took pride and deemed it an honor to be called “KHADIMS” of Hazrat Khwaja Garib Nawaz (R.A.).

Syed Fakhruddin stayed with the great Khwaja unto his last breath and when Khwaja Saheb kept him self busy in prayer and meditation or in seclusion for a number of days he looked after his affairs and management of Khanah and Langar Khana.

Hazrat Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A.) died at Ajmer, on 25th of Rajjab 642 A.H./1245 (nearly a decade after the “Wissal” (death) of Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) and was buried near Mazar – e – Pak of Khwaja Sahib in the Hujra, which is known as “Tosh – e – Khana” (Toshak – Khana). His annual Urs, is celebrated on the 25th of Rajjab, with all religious ceremonies by the Khuddam, Khwaja Sahib (Syedzadgan).

Khuddam-e-Khwaja and Lineage, Relation and Association with Khwaja Sahib:-
(Harke-Khidmat Kard Makhdum Shud)
The Khadims of Huzoor Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) known as “Syedzadgan” trace their lineage from Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A.) through his sons – Khwaja Syed Masood, Khwaja Syed Mehboob Bahlol and Khwaja Syed Ibrahim.

Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A.) and Huzoor Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) were first cousins and spiritual borthers and Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A.) was also the Khadim-e-Khas of Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.). He used to attend on Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) day in day out, therefore, he and his descendants, the present Khadim community took pride and deemed it an honour to be called “Khadims” of Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A)

Hazrat Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiar Kaki (R.A) of Delhi in his book ‘Munis-ul-Arwah’ writes as under :
” During my twenty years company with my ‘Shaikh’ (spiritual leader), i did not find any other person , except Fakhruddin so near to him. ”

The Khuddam-e-Khwaja { Decendents of Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A) } are also referred to as Mujavirs, Syedna, Sahibzadas, Khudma, Gaddinashins etc. by the devotees, and pilgrims, who pour all kinds of offerings (Nazar) upon them, in the name of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty.

Khwaja Hussain Nagori (R.A) has alluded the Khadims of Khwaja Sahib as equivalent to Ridwan (the door keeper of heaven), and this shows how great Saints of the time held the Khadiman-e-Khwaja in high esteem, and appreciated their role.

The Mazar-e-Aqdas (Holy Shrine) of Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) always remained under the custody and care of the Khadim community from the very beginning, which proves that they are the custodians of the Holy Shrine (Mazar-e-Aqdas) in the true sense of the word. All the mundane rituals & traditions of the Mazar-e-Aqdas (Holy Shrine) are performed by Khadims alone.

“KHUDDAM-e-Khwaja’s RELATION WITH THE SHRINE IS NOT ONLY ANCIENT BUT INTIMATE”:-
The keys of the Holy Shrine including the Toshakhana are in the custody of the Khadims since inception according to centuries old Khalid Bardari system of our ancestors.

Only the Khadims have the privilege to open (after giving Azan at the door step of the Shrine) & close the doors of the Holy Shrine for centuries in religious & hereditary capacity.

Khadims are the only one’s entitled to take Zaireen (Pilgrims) for Ziyarat (Darshan) at the Holy Shrine, and they have the right to receive all kinds of Nazar & Niyaz (offerings) at the Holy Shrine (Mazar-e-Aqdas) of Huzoor Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.).

Undoubtedly, the Khadims, who have been attached to the Shrine since its inception, played a key role in the smooth functioning and in keeping strict discipline in the performances of these rituals and ceremonies. As a result, they often invited the ill-will and wrath of pilgrims and other officials. But their genuine concern and enforcement of established customs and rituals, showing strict adherence to the humanitarian approach of the Saint, was always upheld by the authorities.

Offerings and Judicial Pronouncement

For many years, khadims have been questioned about the right of receipt of offerings by the followers of Hazrat Khwaja Sahib. Efforts have been made to deprive khadims of their rights. They make anti Khadim propaganda and try to mislead people openly not to make any offerings to them. They also condemn the act of those who express their devotion to them and make offerings in monetary forms. This matter was finally resolved by the Supreme Court of India when the following Act was passed.
 
The Khadims right to receive offerings which has been judicially recognized in no manner affected or prejudiced by the impinged provisions. Even after the act came into force pilgrims might and would make offerings to the khadims and there is no provision in the act which prevents them from accepting such offerings when made.” AIR-1961 S.C. Page 1417.
 
The concept of Nazar- o -Niyaz, according to Sufi customs, specially Chishty trends is meant for those who are attached and serve the shrine and are called Majaveranor “Khuddam” Since the inception of the shrine, Khuddams were attached to the shrine and served here for centuries performing rituals and preaching noble Chishty ideals. Muhammad Bin Tughlug(1324) Sultan Mahmud Khilji(1455),Muzaffar Shah of Gujrat (1396), Rao Maldev of Jodhpur, Sher Shah Suri(1545), all offered Nazar- o –Niyaz to these Khuddams.

In lieu of their past services and attachment to the Dargah, these custodians of Shrine were offered land grants by Akbar and his successors, all of whom held them in high esteem and venerated many of the khadims of their age. Further more, it is because of their long association with the Dargah that people from all walks of life respect and venerate these Khuddam and rightly consider them the custodians and Gaddi Nashin of the Dargah.
