22nd  Jumadi-ul-Thani , 1439 Hijri
This approx on:  Sunday 11th March 2018
(Depending on Lunar date of your country).

On 22nd day of this Lunar Month in Ajmer Sharif, highly inspiring programme of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allah Unho) is celebrated at a specific demise at the shrine in Ajmer Sharif.

Hzrt Abu Bakr (Radi Allahu anhu’s) real name was Abdullah, and he was given the title of “As Siddique” or”Testifier to the Truth.” His father, ‘Uthman, was known as Abu Quhafah and his mother, Salma, was known as Ummul Khair. He was two and a half years younger than the blessed and final Prophet Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

Hzrt Abu Bakr (R.A.) the First Among Men to Enter Islam.

Hzrt Abu Bakr (R.A) were always a very close Companion of the Holy Prophet, he knew them better than any other man. He knew how honest and upright the Prophet was. Such knowledge of the Prophet made Abu Bakr (R.A) be the first man to follow the Message of Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. He was indeed the first adult male to accept Islam.

The Holy Prophet told Abu Bakr (R.A) what had happened at Mount Hira’, he told him that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has revealed to him and made him His Messenger.

When Abu Bakr (R.A) heard this from the prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, he did not stop to think, he at once became a Muslim. He submitted to Islam with such determination that once the Holy Prophet himself remarked, “I called people to Islam, everybody thought over it, at least for a while, but this was not the case with Abu Bakr (R.A), the moment I put Islam before him, he accepted it without any hesitation”. He was titled As-Siddiq by the Prophet because his faith was too strong to be shaken by anything.

In fact, Abu Bakr (R.A) was more than a great believer, as soon as he became a Muslim, he immediately began to preach Islam to others. Among those who accepted Abu Bakr’s invitation to Islam were; Uthman, Zubair, Talha, Abdul Rahman bin Auf, Saadi bin Waqqas and others who later became the pillars of Islam.

Abu Bakr’s love of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam was so great that he was willing to sacrifice his life for the sake of protecting and comforting the Prophet saw.

Such love and sacrifice were demonstrated when one day the Holy Prophet was saying his prayers in the Ka’ba, while some of the chiefs of Mecca were sitting in the court yard of the Ka’ba. Seeing the Prophet praying, ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu’eet took a long piece of cloths and put it around the Prophet’s neck and twisted it hard in an attempt to strangle the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam to death. At that moment Abu Bakr (R.A) happened to pass by from a distance, he saw ‘Uqbah trying to strangle the Prophet to death. Immediately Abu Bakr ran to the help of the Prophet, he pushed ‘Uqbah aside and took the cloth from around the Prophet’s neck. Thereupon the enemies of Islâm came down upon Abu Bakr and beat him , although Abu Bakr with faith like a rock did not care for his own suffering, he was glad that he was able to save the Prophet of Allah, even at the risk of his own life.

Abu Bakr with the wealth he had, also had a major role in freeing some of the Muslim slaves, who were barbarically tortured by their heartless Mushrik masters to give up the Faith and return to their masters’ beliefs. The heartless monsters tried all kinds of torture: they made them lie all naked on the burning desert sand, putting big stones on their chest, as well as other kinds of torture. Here Abu Bakr’s wealth came to the rescue, as he bought the poor helpless slaves from their inhuman masters and set them free, Bilal Al-Habashi (R.A), the slave of Umayya bin Khalaf, was among those who were set free by Abu Bakr. Bilal(R.A) became afterwards the Mu’azzin at the Prophet’s mosque.

Khulafa-e-Rashideen (R.A) The Companions of the Beloved Prophet (S.A.W) hold the highest status in all His (S.A.W)’s Ummah.

It is the belief That Great Caliphs (Khulafa-e-Rashideen (R.A) are superior to all other Sahabah Ikraam.

Khulafa-e-Rashideen means “The Rightly Guided”. They truly followed in the foot steps of Our Prophet (S.A.W) and became the successors after Him (S.A.W).

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) once said “Caliphate shall last for 30 years after me, and thereafter Kingship will be established”.

The Four main Caliphs (In Order of Caliphate) were: Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A) (For a period of about 2 years). Hazrat Umar-e-Farooque (R.A) (For a period of about 10 years). Hazrat Usman-e-Ghani (R.A) (For a period of about 12 years). Hazrat Moula Ali Murtaza (R.A).(For a period of about 6 years). Hazrat Imaam Hasan (R.A) (For a period of about 6 months , After Hazrat Ali (R.A)). The Four main Caliphs (In Order of Caliphate) were:

Milad-ul-Nabvi -12th Rabi’al awwal 1439 Hijri

 

images

Milad ul Nabvi – Birth of Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon them) is on 12 Rabi’ al-awwal 1439.This is Approx Friday 1st or Saturday 2nd December 2017 . Depending on the Lunar date of your country;Saturday in Ajmer sharif.

Birth of Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon them).

Muhammad   was born in Makkah in the year 570.  Since his father died before his birth and his mother died shortly thereafter, he was raised by his uncle who was from the respected tribe of Quraysh.  He was raised illiterate, unable to read or write, and remained so till his death.  His people, before his mission as a prophet, were ignorant of science and most of them were illiterate.  As he grew up, he became known to be truthful, honest, trustworthy, generous, and sincere.  He was so trustworthy that they called him the Trustworthy.1  Muhammad   was very religious, and he had long detested the decadence and idolatry of his society.

At the age of forty, Muhammad   received his first revelation from God through the Angel Gabriel.  The revelations continued for twenty-three years, and they are collectively known as the Quran.

As soon as he began to recite the Quran and to preach the truth which God had revealed to him, he and his small group of followers suffered persecution from unbelievers.  The persecution grew so fierce that in the year 622 God gave them the command to emigrate.  This emigration from Makkah to the city of Madinah, some 260 miles to the north, marks the beginning of the Muslim calendar.

After several years, Muhammad   and his followers were able to return to Makkah, where they forgave their enemies.  Before Muhammad   died, at the age of sixty-three, the greater part of the Arabian Peninsula had become Muslim, and within a century of his death, Islam had spread to Spain in the West and as far East as China.  Among the reasons for the rapid and peaceful spread of Islam was the truth and clarity of its doctrine.  Islam calls for faith in only one God, Who is the only one worthy of worship.

The Prophet Muhammad   was a perfect example of an honest, just, merciful, compassionate, truthful, and brave human being.  Though he was a man, he was far removed from all evil characteristics and strove solely for the sake of God and His reward in the Hereafter.  Moreover, in all his actions and dealings, he was ever mindful and fearful of God.

The Final Prophet – The Ultimate Mercy to the Universe

When the Month of Rabi-ul-Awwal arrives and the moon of this glorious month is sighted, then the gardens of Islam begin to bloom illuminating the fragrance of the most beautifully scented of flowers, the pearl of the creation of Allah, Muhammad Mustapha (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).It was in his Sadaqah that the entire universe came into existence.

It was for his welcome and to inform the creation of his coming that Almighty Allah sent various other Prophets on earth. If Almighty Allah had not sent the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), He would not have revealed His Rububiyah. He is the Noor of Almighty Allah, Leader and Imam of the Ambiya and the Rasools. He is the hope of the distraught and the intercessor for the sinners. He is the Maalik of Jannah and the distributor of the Ne’mahs of Almighty Allah. He is the pride and honour of the skies and of the earth.

The Throne and the rest of the Universe rejoiced on the birth of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). he Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is not only the perfect human, but he is the splendour of humanity. He is not only for a single nation, one city, one town or one country, but he is the mercy unto the worlds until Qiyamah. All the successes and benefits of the world are under the feet of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). All the levels and path that lead to Almighty Allah find their basis from him. Thus, we should remember him in every breath, on every step and in every time.

A Muslim may make much Salaah, keep much Fasts and perform many Hajj as possible, but until he does not make his heart the city of love for the Beloved Habeeb (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), his faith is incomplete. It is the Hadith that none is a true believer unless he loves the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) more than his life, family, parents and belongings.

Almighty Allah loves the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) so dearly that He swears an oath on the city, era and age of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). With His Name Allah always mentions the name of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), showing his excellence. When Almighty Allah spoke of other Ambiya, He used their names, but for Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) he used his blessed titles. He loves him so dearly that He and His Angels send Salaams for His Habeeb (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

Love for the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is love for Almighty Allah. Without his obedience, there is no obedience to Almighty Allah. Not only should we send Peace and Salutations, but we should spread the teachings of his life and the Sunnah of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). It is useless calling his name while being disobedient to him. If you love him you will be steadfast in your Salaah. You will never lie and commit sin. A true lover will never use anything that is Haraam. He will always serve the Servants of Allah and follow the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

He who loves him truly will not have pride and show disrespect to his elders. He will always be patient and grateful. The reason for this is that true love holds great tests and success is to accept the beloved totally. True love and respect for the Beloved Habeeb (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is the first condition of Imaan. May our lives and death be blessed with the love of our Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Aameen.

 

The Holy Prophet (SAW) is Noor (Divine Light)

Some persons believe that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is only a human being and not Noor (light). They say so based on the reason that the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) had wives, had children, and he used to eat and drink. The Aqeeda of the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jama’at is that he is both Noor and a human being.

The being and existence of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is even before that of human beings, but when he came into this world he came in the garb of a human being.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has stated, “The very first thing which Almighty Allah created was my Noor.” (Tafseer Roohul Bayaan; Madarijun Nabuiwat)

Once Sayyiduna Jaabir (radi Allahu anhu) asked the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) whom Allah Ta’ala created before anything else. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) stated: “O Jaabir! Verily, before the creation of anything else, Almighty Allah created the Noor of your Nabi from His Noor.” (Muwahibul Laduniya; Zirkani Shareef)

The Sahaba of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) lived with him and observed him with his wives and children. They saw him eating, drinking, talking, etc. but still accepted him to be Noor.

We know that Sayyiduna Jibraeel (alaihis salaam) is made of Noor but when he used to appear before Sayyiduna Maryam (radi Allahu anha) he used to appear in the form of a human being. Allah Ta’ala states in the Holy Quran: “Thus he used to appear before her in the form of a healthy (well-built) man.” (Part 16, Ruku 5)

Sayyiduna Umar Farouk (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that once a person came before them. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked him if he knew who that person was, he replied: “Allah Ta’ala and His beloved Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) know better.” The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said that it was Jibraeel (alaihis salaam). (Mishkaat; Bukhari Shareef) This Hadith proves that although the Sahaba referred to Sayyiduna Jibraeel (alaihis salaam) as a man since they saw him in the form of a human being, yet they accepted that he was in actual fact an Angel made from Noor. On many instances, he came in the form of Sahabi-e-Rasool named Sayyiduna Wahia Kalbi (radi Allahu anhu).

Sayyidah Halima Sa’adiya (radi Allahu anha), the wet-nurse of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), believed the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to be Noor. She said that when she used to feed the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) milk in his infancy, she never felt the need for a light in her house. (Bayaanul Miladun Nabwi; Tafseer Mazhari).

Sayyidah Safiya (radi Allahu anha), the aunt of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) states that on the eve of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) she was present in his house. She said that she saw his Noor became more powerful than the light from the lamp. (Shawaahidun Nubuiwat)

Sayyiduna Ali Murtuza (radi Allahu anhu) said that when the Beloved of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) spoke, Noor (light) used to be seen emerging from between his blessed teeth. (Muwahibul Laduniya; Anwaarul Muhammadiyah)

Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) states that when the beloved Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) smiled, then the walls use to glow with his Noor. (Muwahibul Laduniya; Shifa Shareef)

Sayyiduna Anas (radi Allahu anhu) states that the day in which the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) arrived in Madinatul Munawwarah, everything in Madinatul Munawwarah became bright through his Noor. (Tirmizi Shareef; Ibn Majah)

Ummul Mo’mineen, Sayyidah Aisha Siddiqa (radi Allahu anha) is recorded to have said: “In total dark nights, I used to put the thread into a needle with the help of the Noor of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).” (Shara Shifa Bar Hashia Naseemur Riaz)

Sayyiduna Imam-e-Azam Abu Hanifa (alaihir rahmah) praises the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in the following poem: “You are that Noor that the full Moon is brightened by your Noor and you are with your beauty and elegance a shining sun.” (Qasidaul Nu’maan)

Sayyiduna Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari (radi Allahu anhu) reports: I asked: “O Prophet of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), What did the Almighty Allah first create?” The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) replied: “Allah first created my Noor (Light) of His Noor. This Noor travelled about according to the Will of Allah. At that time, there was no Heaven, Hell, Lawh (Divine Tablet), Pen, Earth, Skies, Sun, Moon, Jinn or Human Beings. When He decided to create, He divided that Noor into four parts. From one part He created the Pen, from the second, the Lawh and from the third, he made the Arsh (Throne).

“He divided the fourth part into a further four parts. From one, He created those Angels who carry the Arsh, from the second, the Kursi (Divine Chair) and from the third, He created the Angels.

“He again divided the remaining parts into a further four parts. From one, He created the skies. The second was used in creating the planets. From the third, Heaven and Earth were created.

“Once again, He divided the fourth part into a further four parts. From one part He created the power with which the believers see. From the second, He created in the hearts of the Believers the Noor of Marifat. From the third, He created in the tongues of the Believers, Noor, so that they can read the Kalima of Tauheed”. (Dalaa’il-un-Nubuwwat, Imam Baihaqi)

This astonishing Hadith Shareef proves that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is the life of this world and everything in it. When he is the life of this world, then everything that happens in it is clear to him and nothing is concealed from him. Who then can deny that he is not Noor (light)?

 

The Prophets and Messengers of Allah

“Messenger” or “Rasool” means he who brings the Message from Allah Ta’ala to the servants. A “Prophet” is he who received the “Wahi” (Revelation, a Message from Allah Ta’ala) for the guidance of mankind to show people the path to Allah Ta’ala. Many Prophets and many Angels are Messengers (Rasools).

All Prophets were male. There has never been a Jinn as a Prophet nor a female Prophet.

A Prophet becomes a Prophet who Allah Ta’ala wishes to be or whom Allah Ta’ala deems fit and a Prophet is born as a Prophet. A Prophet always stays away from sin even before becoming a Prophet. He is always attracted to good. There is never an aspect in a Prophet that people would hate. Those who believe that they can become a Prophet due to their effort are Kaafirs (non-believers) and those who believe that a Prophet’s prophecy can be taken away from him is also a Kaafir.

A Prophet’s walk, conduct, looks, features, nobility, family, ways, manner, talk and conversation are all good and free from faults. A Prophet’s intelligence is complete. A Prophet is the cleverest out of all people. The highest qualified doctor or philosopher’s intelligence does not reach even a millionth part of a Prophet’s intelligence.

A Prophet or an Angel are Ma’soom, meaning they are completely immune from sin and therefore cannot commit a sin.

Except for Prophets or Angels, if one believes that an Imaam or a Wali (Saint) are also Ma’soom, then they are misguided and have deviated from the right sect. Although there are Imaams and great Awliya who also do not commit sin, however, if sometimes they do commit a sin, then according to Shari’ah, this is not impossible.

Those who say that the Message of Allah Ta’ala is sometimes not passed on by a Prophet due to the fear of people or some other reason, is a Kaafir.

Prophets are better than all creations. In fact, they are better than those Angels who are Rasools.Regardless of how high a rank of a Wali is, he can never be equal to a Prophet. Those who show a non-Prophet to be better than a Prophet are Kaafirs.

The respect of a Prophet is compulsory on every individual. The slightest disrespect of any Prophet is Kufr (infidelity).

The Prophets are just as alive in their graves as they were when in this world. They eat, drink and go and come as they wish. They were given death for a moment and then were brought back to life so that Allah Ta’ala’s promise would be complete. Their lives are better than those of Martyrs (Shaheeds).

Allah Ta’ala gave the Prophets the Knowledge of the Unseen (I’lme-Ghaib). Every particle of the sky and earth are in front of the sight of all the Prophets. Therefore, this knowledge is “Given Knowledge” (Ataayi) and because Allah Ta’ala’s Knowledge is not given to Him by anyone and, therefore, is “Self Knowledge” (Zaati).

Any follower cannot, due to his will power, piety, worship, and willingness to follow Allah Ta’ala, be better than any Prophet.

Prophets are always involved in the remembrance of Allah Ta’ala even while they are sleeping or awake.

To talk about the mistakes that have been committed by the Prophets is Haraam (strictly forbidden), except for when praying about them in the Holy Quran and Hadith.

It is improper and disrespectful to write abbreviation after the name of Nabi Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) or of any Nabi or Rasool. We must write “sallal laahu alaihi wasallam” or “alaihis salaam” in full.

GRADES OF PROPHETS

Sayyiduna Adam (alaihis salaam) is the first human. He is also the first Prophet. All humans are his children. Allah Ta’ala made Sayyiduna Adam (alaihis salaam) without the need of a mother or father. He was made from soil. Allah Ta’ala made him His Caliph. Allah Ta’ala gave him the knowledge of all things and their names. Allah Ta’ala ordered the Angels to prostrate to Sayyiduna Adam (alaihis salaam). All the Angels performed the prostration except Shaitaan, who refused and was therefore evicted forever and became a Kaafir.

There has come many Prophets from Sayyiduna Adam (alaihis salaam) to our beloved Prophet Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) Sayyiduna Nooh (Noah), Sayyiduna Ibrahim (Abraham), Sayyiduna Moosa (Moses), Sayyiduna ‘Isa (Jesus) were Mesengers and also Prophets. Some other Prophets mentioned in the Holy Quran are: Sayyiduna Ismaeel, Sayyiduna Ishaaq, Sayyiduna Ya’qoob, Sayyiduna Yusuf, Sayyiduna Moosa, Sayyiduna Haroon, Sayyiduna Shu’aib, Sayyiduna Loot, Sayyiduna Hood, Sayyiduna Dawood, Sayyiduna Sulaiman, Sayyiduna Ayoob, Sayyiduna Ilyaas, Sayyiduna Yahya, Sayyiduna Yunus, Sayyiduna Idrees, Sayyiduna Zulkifl and Sayyiduna Saaleh (alaihimus salaam).

The status of the Prophets varies from one another. Some are more superior to others and the most superior of all the Nabis is Sayyiduna Muhammadur Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). The next most superior is Sayyiduna Ebrahim Khaleelullah (alaihis salaam), who is followed by Sayyiduna Moosa (alaihis salaam), and then Sayyiduna Esa (alaihis salaam), and Sayyiduna Nooh (alaihis salaam). These five Ambiya are known as “Mursaleen Ulul Azm”. They are also superior to all other Prophets.

Just as our leader Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is the greatest of all Prophets, (without comparison), his Ummah is the greatest of all the Ummats.

An exact number of how many Prophets that have been sent into this world is not known, but is said to be approximately 124 000.

The last of all Prophets and Messengers and the most virtuous of all creations is Allah Ta’ala’s most beloved – our Master, Sayyiduna Ahmad Mujtaba Muhammad Mustapha (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is Khaatimun Nabiyeen (The Final Prophet). After the beloved Prophet there has never been another Prophet nor will there be another Prophet. Whoever believes that there will be a Prophet or there has been a Prophet during our Prophet’s era or after or actually believes it as a possibility of someone obtaining Prophecy is a Kaafir.

OUR PROPHET’S UNIQUE VIRTUES AND EXCELLENCE

Allah Ta’ala created from His Noor (light) our beloved Prophet, before any other thing. The Prophets, the Angels, the Earth, Skies, Heavens, etc. have all been created from the ray of the Holy Prophet’s (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) light (Noor).

Except for Allah Ta’ala or being equal to Allah Ta’ala, our beloved Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has been given whatever qualities there are, and whatever excellence exists, by Allah Ta’ala. In the whole universe, there cannot be anything or anyone with the same or greater quality than our beloved Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is the most virtuous creation and a delegate of Allah Ta’ala.

All the Ambiya (alaihimus salaam) were sent down to a particular group of people or a particular nation, but the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was sent to the entire creation.

The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is Mercy unto the humans, Angels, Jinns, animals and all the other creations of Almighty Allah and his special blessings is upon the human beings.

The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is the Prophet of all the other Prophets and it is a necessity for everyone to follow the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

Allah Ta’ala has gifted the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) with the keys of all Allah Ta’ala’s treasures. All the world and religious gifts are provided and created by Allah Ta’ala and shared and given out by our beloved Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

Allah Ta’ala gave our Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) the unique gift of Me’raj, meaning that Allah Ta’ala called him above the skies (Arsh) and showed him His Vision with the Prophet’s (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) own eyes.

The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam listened to Allah Ta’ala’s Voice and was given a tour of Jannah (Paradise), Jahannam (Hell), Arsh (above the skies) and Kursi (Throne).

On the Day of Judgement, our Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam will be the first to perform intercession, meaning that he will intercede for people in the Court of Allah Ta’ala.

There are many other qualities, too much to mention in this short section.

If someone treated any of the Holy Prophet’s (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) quotations or actions or deeds or situations as not worthy or looked upon them with degrading value, then they are Kaafirs.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MAUJIZA AND KARAAMAT

When a Prophet performs an action that is impossible to perform to prove his prophecy and it astonishes the Kaafirs, it is known as a “Maujiza”. For example, to bring back to life the dead or to split the moon into two with the movement of the finger.

If these types of actions are performed by a Wali (Friend of Allah Ta’ala), then it is known as a “Karaamat”.

If they are performed by an ordinary person or wrongdoer or a Kaafir, then it is known as “Istidraj”.

When people see a Maujiza, the truth of a Prophet is accepted. False liars who claim to be a Prophet cannot perform these types of miracles. Allah Ta’ala never gives the false claimants of Prophethood the power to perform Maujizas, otherwise one would not be able to distinguish the difference between the true Prophets and false claimants.

Urs of Hz. Imam Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)- Ekisvi Sharif

orange-and-blue.jpg

Urs Sharif is on 21st Ramadan 1438H

This is approx Friday 16th or Saturday 17th June 2017

(Depending on the Lunar date of your country)

ELECTIONS

After Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radi Allahu anhu) passed away, Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu) was elected as the fourth Caliph by the Muslims. During the period of the first three Caliphs, Madinatul Munawwarah continued to be the capital of the Muslim world, but Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu) transferred the Islamic capital to Kufah in Iraq.

EARLY LIFE

Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)was the son of Abu Taalib, an uncle of Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)was married to Sayyadah Bibi Fathima (radi Allahu anha), the daughter of Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). They had 3 sons, Sayyiduna Hassan, Sayyiduna Hussain and Sayyiduna Mohsin (radi Allahu anhumul ajma’in).Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)took part in the battle of Badr, Khandaq and Khaibar. At Khaibar, it was Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)who subdued the Jews with his furious assault. He also held many important positions during the time of Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and the first 3 Caliphs before him.

He had a love for learning and was a great and learned person himself. He had been given the title of “Baabul I’lm” or “Gate of Learning” by Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). He was also called “Asaadullah” or “Lion of Allah.”

OPPOSITION

The situation in Madinatul Munawwarah after the murder (Shahaadah) of Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radi Allahu anhu) was serious. Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu’s) first task was to rid Madinatul Munawwarah of the rebels and to return the situation to normal.

Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)was able to force the rebels to withdraw from Madinatul Munawwarah and to establish peace and order in the city. The powerful governor of Syria, Sayyiduna Mu’awiyah (radi Allahu anhu), challenged Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)and refused to pay homage to him. Sayyiduna Mu’awiyah (radi Allahu anhu) insisted that Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)arrest the murderers of Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radi Allahu anhu) and hand them over to him.

Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)was a man with a deep sense of justice and did not want to accuse the wrong people. He needed a peaceful period to trace the culprits. But, Sayyiduna Mu’awiyah (radi Allahu anhu) began accusing him of protecting the murderers, and in this way the old enmity between the two families were revived.

SAYYIDUNA MU’AWIYAH (RADI ALLAHU ANHU)

Unlike most of Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radi Allahu anhu’s) governors, Sayyiduna Muaawiyah (radi Allahu anhu) displayed great administrative ability and was very popular. He was a God-fearing man and especially known for his mercy. Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)was very strict in piety and straight forward. Sayyiduna Muaawiyah (radi Allahu anhu) declared his disobedience to him, because he felt that he was better qualified to lead the Muslim world.

BATTLE OF THE CAMEL

Another serious development took place. Sayyadah Aishah (radi Allahu anha) and two leading Sahaba, Sayyiduna Talha and Sayyiduna Zubair (radi Allahu anhuma) declared their opposition to the Khilaafat of Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu). They left Madinatul Munawwarah for Makkatul Mukarramah and from there travelled to Basrah where they rallied men and new supporters.

Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)had to crush all opposition. A bloody battle took place near Basrah on the 9th of December 656 A.C. This battle was sparked off by a third force who were the real troublemakers. Just before the battle, both parties had already reached an agreement to settle the dispute. But this third force, the real assassinators of Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radi Allahu anhu), launched an overnight attack on both camps simultaneously. Each side were under the impression that the other had attacked. The battle began. Several thousand men were lost including the two Sahaba. Sayyadah Aishah (radi Allahu anha) was safe. She was riding a camel during the battle-hence the name “Battle of the Camel.” Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)treated her in a most noble and dignified manner and respectfully sent her back to Madinatul Munawwarah. She praised him and deeply regretted opposing Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu). Kufa was now made the capital of the Islamic world.

BATTLE OF SIFFIN

Sayyiduna Muaawiyah (radi Allahu anhu) rallied an army to face Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu). A battle took place at Siffin on the Syrian border in the July of 567 A.C. Sayyiduna Muaawiyah (radi Allahu anhu) was no match for Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)and began to retreat. By the clever proposal of Sayyiduna Amr bin Al As (radi Allahu anhu), the retreating army raised pieces of the Holy Quran on their spears demanding judgement between the two parties. Many pious Muslims on the side of Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)refused to fight seeing the Holy Quran displayed in the air.

JUDGEMENT

Two men, one from each side, were appointed to settle the dispute. Sayyiduna Abu Musa (radi Allahu anhu), a pious Sahaba from Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu’s) side, and the skilled Sayyiduna Amr (radi Allahu anhu) from Sayyiduna Muaawiyah (radi Allahu anhu’s) side. Sayyiduna Musa (radi Allahu anhu) declared in front of the Muslims that it was decided to recommend the removal of both Sayyiduna Ali and Sayyiduna Muaawiyah (radi Allahu anhuma) and that the Muslims should select another man for the Khilaafat. Sayyiduna Amr (radi Allahu anhu) replied that: “He has declared the removal of his leader, while I would conform Muaawiyah as the Caliph.” Chaos followed.

KHAARIJEES

Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)prepared to meet Sayyiduna Muaawiyah (radi Allahu anhu) again in battle, but he was moved from his task by a serious conflict that occurred among his men. Some narrow-minded people accused Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)of accepting a man-made judgement. Their slogan was: “There is no judgment but with Allah.” They declared that Sayyiduna Ali, Sayyiduna Muaawiyah and Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radi Allahu anhumul ajma’in) were unbelievers and that Jihad should be declared against them. Ever since this event, they have been known as the “Khaarijees”, which means, “those who left the fold.” They maintained that the Khilaafat should be given to the most eligible Muslim, regardless of his origin. The Kharijees are not regarded as Muslims.

ASSASSINATION

On the 17th of July 659 A.C., Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)overcame the Khaarijees in a battle near Nahrawan, in which, it is said, that 40 000 lives were lost.

In the early morning of the 24th of January 661 A.C., Abdul Rahman bin Muljim, a Khaariji fanatic lay in ambush in the Masjid of Kufah and stabbed Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu) when he entered the masjid. He passed away from the wound. He was 63 years old.

PERSONAL LIFE

Sayyiduna Ali (Karam Allah Wajhu)lived a simple life. He refused any luxury food and wore simple clothes thinking of the poor. He should sleep on the ground and even sit on the floor. He repaired his own clothes and shoes and even did manual labour. He spent nights in Salaah and should fast for three days in a row. Honesty, piety, justice and love of truth were the main marks of his character.

 

Urs of Bibi Sayidah Ayesha Siddiqah (R.A)

 

fazaileayeshasiddiqa

 

 

 

Urs Sharif is on 17th Ramadan 1438

This is Approx Monday 12th or Tuesday 13 June 2017 Hijri

Bibi Sayidah Ayesha Siddiqah (R.A) was the third lady to enter the house of the Beloved Habib Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him as his wife, and she was the only virgin in the consorts of purity of the Holy Prophet’s Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him house. She was of a tender age when she was married to Allah’s Apostle Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him.

Historical records bear ample testimony to the fact that Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) was a precocious genius and was developing both in mind and body with rapidity peculiar to such rare personalities. This marriage is significant in the history of Islam in so many aspects.
Firstly, it cemented the ties between Sayiduna Rasoolullah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and his devoted friend Sayiduna Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A) who always stood by him in hour of trial and who sacrificed his all for the cause of Islam.

Secondly, by this marriage, a lady of eminent qualities came under the direct influence of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him at a highly impressionable age, and this provided her ample opportunities to penetrate into the innermost recesses of the sacred heart of the Beloved Habeeb Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. She shared his company and thus was able to develop her potentialities and refine her taste perfectly in accordance with the teachings of Islam under the direct supervision of Sayiduna Rasoolullah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him.

This young age was in fact very opportune for marriage as it has been clearly shown in the researches of psychoanalysts that much of the emotional of a mature person and most of those seemingly unaccountable leanings, tastes and tendencies comprised in the term idiosyncrasies can be traced to the experience of his or her highly formative age of either later childhood or early adolescence.
Thirdly, all the wives of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him with the exception of Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) were of advanced age and thus could neither share the feelings of the younger generation nor could they properly appreciate their point of view. The difference of age always stood as a barrier between them and the ladies of the younger ages. The only lady with whom young women could frankly enter into conversation and discuss problems without any reserve could be none but Sayidah Ayesha (R.A). Thus, the marriage of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him with Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) at an age when she was at the threshold of puberty was a great necessity, as it was through her that instructions could successfully be imparted to the young ladies who had newly entered the fold of Islam.

Moreover, this marriage struck at the root of a wrong notion that had firmly taken hold of the minds of the people that it was contrary to religious ethics to marry the daughter of a man whom one declared to be one’s brother. The Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him, with the help of his personal example, showed to the people that there is a great difference between a brother-in-faith and the brother in relation to blood. The marriage, which is forbidden in Islam, is with the daughter of the brother in blood and not with the daughter of the brother-in-faith.

Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) lived on almost fifty years after the passing away of the Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. She passed away in the year 58 A.H. in the month of Ramadan and was buried in the sacred graveyard Baqi al-Garqad of Madinatul Munawwara.
Bibi Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) reported that the Apostle of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him said:

 

“I saw you in a dream for three nights when an Angel brought you to me in a silk cloth and he said, ‘Here is your wife’, and when I removed the cloth from your face, it was yourself, so I said, ‘If this is from Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala, let Him carry it out.’”

Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) used to play with dolls in the presence of the Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and when her playmates came to her they left (the house) because they felt shy of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him whereas Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him sent them to her. People sent their gifts when it was the turn of Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) seeking thereby the pleasure of Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him .

Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) said:

“The wives of Allah’s Apostle Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him sent his daughter Fatima (R.A) to him. She sought permission to get in as he had been lying with me in my mantle. He gave her permission and she said: ‘Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him ! Verily, your wives have sent me to you in order to ask you to observe equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafah.’ She (Bibi Ayesha -R.A) said: ‘I kept quiet’. Thereupon, Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him said to her (Bibi Fatima -R.A ):

 

‘O daughter! Don’t you love whom I love?’ She said: ‘Yes, I do’. Thereupon, he said: ‘I love this one (Ayesha)’.

Bibi Fatima (R.A) then stood up as she heard this from her father and went to the wives of Allah’s Apostle Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and informed them of what she had said to him and what he had said to her. Thereupon, they said to her: ‘We think that you have been of no avail to us. You may again go to Allah’s Apostle and tell him that his wives seek equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafah’. Bibi Fatima (R.A) said: ‘By Allah I will never talk to him about this matter’.

Sayidah Ayesha (R.A)  (further) reported:

 

The wives of Allah’s Apostle Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him then sent Zaynab bint Jahsh (R.A) , the wife of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him , and she was one who was somewhat equal in rank with me in the eyes of the Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and I have never seen a woman more advanced in religious piety than Zaynab (R.A) , more Allah-conscious, more truthful, more alive to the ties of blood, more generous and having more sense of self-sacrifice in practical life and having more charitable disposition and thus more close to Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala, the Exalted, than her. She however lost temper very soon but was soon calm. Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him permitted her to enter as she (Ayesha R.A) was along with Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him in her mantle, in the same very state when Fatima (R.A) had entered. She said: ‘Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him , your wives have sent me to you seeking equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafah’. She then came to me and showed harshness to me and I was seeing the eyes of Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him whether he would permit me. Zaynab (R.A) went on until I came to know that Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him would not disapprove if I retorted. Then I exchanged hot words until I made her quiet. Thereupon, the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him smiled and said: ‘She is the daughter of Abu Bakr (R.A) ’”.
This Hadith gives a clear glimpse of the home life of the Glorious Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. The wives of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him were all eminent ladies having deep Allah-consciousness, but they, after all, belonged to the human race and thus, could not completely banish those minor human weaknesses, which are ingrained in the very nature of the fair sex. They were all deeply attached to the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and every one of them had, therefore, an earnest desire that she should get the maximum love and affection from the Prophet of Allah Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. It was out of this spirit of envy, rather than jealousy, that they put forward this demand. It was a natural expression of their humanly feelings born of their love for the Beloved Habeeb Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him , and not an objection against the attitude and behavior of the “Mercy of the Worlds”. And they could not even conceive of it; and how could they, when all of them had been receiving the most beneficent treatment at his hand?

Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) reported:

 

“When the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him set out on a journey, he used to cast lots amongst his wives. Once this lot came out in my favour and that of Hafsa (R.A). They (Hafsa (R.A) and Ayesha (R.A) ) both went along with him and when it was night Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him used to travel on camel along with Ayesha (R.A) and talked with her. Hafsa (R.A) said to Ayesha (R.A) : ‘Would you like to ride upon my camel tonight and allow me to ride upon your camel and you would see (what you generally do not see) and I would see (what I do not see) generally?’ She said: ‘Yes’. But, Ayesha (R.A) rode upon the camel of Hafsa (R.A) and Hafsa (R.A) rode upon the camel of Ayesha (R.A) and Allah’s Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him came near the camel of Ayesha (R.A) , (whereas) Hafsa (R.A) had been riding over that. He greeted her and then rode with her until they came down. She (Ayesha (R.A) ) thus missed the company of the Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him and when they sat down, Ayesha (R.A) felt jealous. She put her foot in the grass and said: ‘O ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala , let the scorpion sting me or a serpent bite me. And so far as Your Messenger Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him is concerned, I cannot say anything about him’”.
Sayiduna Anas bin Maalik (R.A) has said:

 

“The Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him said that the excellence of Ayesha over women is like the excellence of Tharid over all other foods.”
Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) is one of the four persons (the others being Sayiduna Abu Hurayra (R.A) , Sayiduna Abdullah bin Omar (R.A) and Sayiduna Anas bin Maalik (R.A) ) who transmitted more than two thousand sayings of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him. The Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him referring to her extensive knowledge of Islam is reported to have said:

 

“Learn a portion of your religion from this Humayra (red coloured lady).”
Sayidah Ayesha (R.A) not only possessed great knowledge but also took an active part in education and social reform. As a teacher she had a clear and persuasive manner of speech and her power of oratory has been described in superlative terms. Men and women came from far and wide to benefit from her knowledge.

According to the Orientalist, D.S. Margoliouth, he wrote:

 

“Of the entire number of inmates, Lady Ayesha alone, by force of character and keenness of wit, won for herself a place in the political and religious history of Islam.” [Quoted by Fida Hussain Maalik in his book, ‘Wives of the Prophet’, Bombay, 1989, Page 124]
Pearls of Wisdom by Sayida Ayesha as-Siddiqah

To spend for your guests is not extravagance.Good deeds are to refrain from bad deeds.A believer of truth never becomes disgrace even if the whole World turns against him while a believer in falsehood never gains respect even if the moon comes out on his forehead.Wherever the torch of truth shines it is advantageous to all, and it must not be seen who the torchbearer is.A very good trait of character is to protect your tongue.When the stomach becomes full the faculty of thought becomes weak and wisdom and understanding become mute.Gluttony is the root of all illnesses and abstinence is its remedy.Magnificence is gained in 1% friendship and 99% hard work and physical exertion.

10th Ramadan 1438 Hijri

This is Approx Monday 5th or Tuesday 6th June 2017

(Depending on Lunar date of your country).

Bibi Khadijah-tul-Kubra (R.A.) the most beloved wife of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) and the mother of Bibi Fatima-al-Zahra(R.A),the only daughter of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) passed away on 10th Ramadan in Makkah three years before the Hijrah of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) from Makkah to Madinah.
Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) provides a complete beacon of light for today’s women.

Khadijah (1)

She was a wealthy woman and big trader of the Arab but she devoted her entire riches to the cause of Islam and the Holy Prophet (SAW). She faced every difficulty with forbearance for the sake of Allah and His Prophet (SAW).

CImn9ZmWsAAzTYc

Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) was a person who devoted herself to worship and remained consistent in the face of difficult times despite being rich. She embraced Islam at a time when no other person was ready to do so.

Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) gave unflinching support and encouragement to the Holy Prophet (SAW) when people would create difficulties for him. She possessed excellence character and was known as Tahira for her piety. She said that if we wanted to put our lives on the path of piety and good works, we would have to receive light from the life of Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) because her life is an ideal for our guidance.

Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) was an honest, brave and generous woman who stood by the Prophet of Islam (SAW) through thick and thin. It is the privilege and honour of Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) that she gave birth to the Prophet’s daughter Bibi Fatima (RA). After her death, the tears would come to the eyes of the Holy Prophet (SAW) whenever her name was mentioned. The Holy Prophet (SAW) would remember her services for the cause of Islam and pay her tribute.
.

Holy Prophet (SAW) would feel aggrieved and pained due to sufferings created by the infidels, her sight would be a source of comfort for the Prophet (SAW). He (SAW) would forget his pain and difficulties and become happy the moment he would meet her. Bibi Sayyida Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) loved the Holy Prophet (SAW) most dearly, provided all the means for the ease, happiness and comfort of the Holy Prophet, so much so that she put all her resources at the disposal of the Prophet (SAW). She sank her likes and dislikes in the likes and dislikes of the Holy Prophet (SAW).
Allah Almighty sent greetings for Bibi Sayyida Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) during her life at the hands of Hazrat Jabrail (AS) and gave her glad tidings of a beautiful palace in Paradise. The Holy Prophet (SAW) would often remember Hazrat Khadija (RA). There can be no greater argument in favour of her status and prestige in the eyes of the Holy Prophet (SAW) than this that they did not enter into marriage with any other woman during the former’s life.

As long as Bibi Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA) lived, the Holy Prophet (SAW) did not contract second marriage in her presence

The words the Holy Prophet (SAW) expressed to describe her exemplary sacrifices represent his love for her. He (SAW) said:

“By God, Khadija believed in me at a time when people rejected me. Khadija gave me place when people refused to accommodate me with them and Khadija (RA) gave me children.”

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.

Urs Hzrt Uwais Qarni (R.A) 1438 Hijri

 

Owais Qarni R.A

Owais Qarni R.A

Urs date is 3rd Rajab 1438H  This is approx Saturday 1st April 2017
Hazrat Uwais Qarni was an Ashiq (passionate lover) par excellence of Prophet Muhammad, sallalahu alaihi wa sallam. His love for his spiritual Master, Seal of the Prophet, dwarfs love of any other human beings under the sky and above the earth. Never in the history of mankind have witnessed another crazy lover other than Uwais whose love for his Master was totally neoplatonic, yet of highest order, being free from physically seeing or being.
Uwais Qarni lived during the time of the Prophet and could never make to meet him physically due to serving his blind mother who was of advanced age and it was only Uwais to take care of her. But lets not forget that the Rule of love is quite different. Though Qarni never met the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon them) yet both were fully aware of each other’s spiritual presence and attraction of love for the sake of God. The Uwaisi form of spiritual transmission in the vocabulary of Islamic mysticism was named after Uwais Qarni, as it refers to the transmission of spiritual knowledge between two individuals without the need for physical interaction between them. Sometimes the Messenger of God would turn in the direction of Yemen and say: “I perceive the fragrance of love from Yemen,” referring to the presence of a great lover of his living in that region.
About this man of tremendous spiritual status, Uwais Qarni – a true habib of al-habib-Allah, here are some remarkable sayings of the Master of love, Prophet Muhammad ( Peace be upon them ) Their own words of Hzrt Uwais Qarni (R.A).
“Uwais Qarni is the noblest of the Tabieen with Ihsaan.” (Ihsan is the highest spiritual stage where one worship Allah Ta’ala as if one sees Allah)
“Tomorrow on the Day of Qiyaamah (Day of Resurrection) God will create 70,000 angels in the image of Uwais Qarni who will enter in their midst into Paradise. No one will recognize him except those whom Allah wishes.” Since Uwais Qarni engrossed himself in worship in concealment, fleeing from people, Allah will preserve his concealment even in the Hereafter. On the reality of hiddenness of the saints/ friends of God, Allah has declared: “My Auliyaa (friends) are under My Mantle. None besides Me knows them.”
Among the friends of God, Uwais is special of the specials
The Beloved of God said: “In my Community (Ummah) is a man whose intercession (shafaa’at) will be accepted on behalf of so many people whose number equals the hairs on the sheep/goats of the tribes of Rabeeh and Mudhir.” (These two Arab tribes possessed the most sheep and goats, hence the analogy.)
When the companions inquired about the identity of this man, the Messenger of God said: “A servant among the servants of Allah.”
The companions responded: “Please excuse us O Messenger of God, we all are the servants of Allah. What is his name?”
The Beloved unveiled the name saying: “Uwais Qarni.”
The companions: “Where is he?”
The Messenger: “In Qarn (a place in Yemen).”
The companions: “Has he seen you, O Messenger of God?”
The Messenger: “Not with his physical eyes, but he has seen me with his spiritual eyes.”
The companions: “Such an ardent lover, but why has he not entered into your companionship?”
The Seal of Prophet replied: “There are two reasons. The first is ghalbah haal (i.e. he is always in a high spiritual state which makes him oblivious of everything besides God, the Supreme). The second is his profound observance of my Shariat (Divinely Prescribed Way). His faithful mother is extremely old and blind. He tends to camels and with his earnings he supports his mother.”
The Companions asked: “Can we see him O Messenger of God?”
The Messenger turned to his companion-friend Venerable Abu Bakr: “You will not see him, but Umar and Ali will see him. His entire body is covered with bodily hair. On the palm of his hand and left side is a white spot, the size of adirham (coin), which is not the mark of leprosy. When you meet him, convey my greetings of peace to him and tell him to make supplication for my Ummah (community). Among the Auliyaa (friends of God) those who are the Atqiyaa (a very loft category of Auliyaa, special among the specials), he is the holiest.”
The Companions further asked: “Where shall we find him?”
The Messenger unveiled more: “In Yemen, he is a camel-herd known as Uwais. You should follow in his footsteps.”
As the time for the Messenger of God to return to his Lord came near the companions once asked: “To whom shall we give your holy cloak?”
The Prophet entrusted it to his favorite lover, by saying: “To Uwais Qarni.”
This is the beginning of the practice of Islam to entrust the Master’s cloak to his chosen spiritual disciple, a tradition preserved in the Islamic Sufi tradition. Uwais was indeed given the cloak of the Prophet after his passing and as he prophesied, his two leading companion, Umar and Ali, may Allah bless them both, indeed went in search of this great soul and found him. You may read in details of this account from the life of Hazrat Uwais Qarni .  According to Sufi masters such as Hujwiri, Attar Niyshabpouri, and Sheikh Mohammad Ghader Bagheri, the first recipient of Prophet Muhammad’s Cloak was Uwais al-Qarni. In so doing, the Messenger confirmed the method of Heart to Heart communication through which Uwais had received the essence of Islam. The method of the passing of the Cloak represents two significant elements in the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon them) which constitute the method of instruction of the School of Islamic Sufism–cognition must take place inwardly, and cognition must be confirmed. Since that time, the cloak and the method of receiving knowledge through the heart, symbolizing the highest level of divine illumination, and conferring honor, recognition and respect on the recipient, has been handed down through an unbroken succession of Sufi masters.
