Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu)

When Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu) was mentioned in the presence of Hazrat Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) he wept and said, “I wish all my good deeds could compare with what he did on a certain day and a certain night. The night was the one on which he went with Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) to the cave and said when they reached it, ‘I swear by Allah that you will not enter it before I have first done so, for if there is anything in it I shall be smitten by it and not you.’ He then entered and swept it and found some holes in the side of it, so he tore up his lower garment and sopped them with it; but as two were still left he thrust his feet into them and told Allah’s Messenger (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) to enter. When he had done so Allah’s Messenger ( Sallalal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) laid his head on his lap and went to sleep. The foot of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu) in one of the holes received a sting, but he did not move for fear Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) might awake. His tears, however, fell on the face of Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam), and he asked him what was the matter with him. He replied, ‘I have been stung.’ Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) then spat and the pain left him. The day was when Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) left this world and the Arabs apostatized (rebelled) and refused to pay Zakaat. He said, ‘If they were to refuse me a tether I would strive with them over it. I said, Successor of Allah’s Messenger (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam), be affable and gentle to the people,’ but he replied, ‘have you who were a powerful man in the pre-Islamic period become weak in the Islamic period? The revelation has ceased and the religion has been perfected. Is it to diminish while I am alive?”

The Incident of Meeraj un Nabi Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam

The Journey of Prophet Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasllam

[Bani Israel 17:1] Purity is to Him Who took His bondman in a part of the night from the Sacred Mosque to the Aqsa Mosque around which We have placed blessings, in order that We may show him Our great signs; indeed he is the listener, the beholder. (This verse refers to the physical journey of Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him – to Al Aqsa Mosque and from there to the heavens and beyond. The entire journey back to Mecca was completed within a small part of the night.)

Did you know?

When He Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam was fifty-one years and nine months, He Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam went on the Night Journey commencing from the place between Zamzam and the Maqām, to Jerusalem. The Burāq was brought [again] and he Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam mounted it and was raised to the heavens; prayer was made obligatory during this journey.

Khwaja Gharib Nawāz Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu

..:: Isfahan ::..

Khwaja Gharib Nawāz Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu journeyed to Isfahan and there he met with the leader of the Mashā’ikh, Shaykh Mehmūd Isfahanī Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu.
Initially, Khwaja Qutbudīn Bakhtiyār Kākī Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu intended to become a Murīd of Shaykh Mehmūd Isfahanī Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu but when he saw the overwhelming personality of Hazrat Khwaja Gharīb Nawāz Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu, his heart melted in his love and he was the totally captivated by Him.

Khwaja Qutbudīn Bakhtiyār Kākī Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu then became the Murīd of the great Khwaja Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu and remained With him throughout his travels. Certainly, there was no better Murīd of Khwaja Gharīb Nawāz Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu than Khwaja Qutbudīn Bakhtiyār Kākī Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu who could share his secrets. Obviously, there was no better Murshid than the great Khwaja Gharīb Nawāz Radi Allāhu ‘Anhu from whom he could attain the pinnacle of perfection in the spiritual world. Both complimented one another.

Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas (may Allah be pleased with both the father and the son) narrates when Sayyiduna Umar Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu accepted Islam, Jibraeel Alaihis Salam descent and said:

“O Muhammad – may Allah send greetings and salutations on him – indeed, the residents of the heavens are rejoicing in Umar`s embracing Islam.” [Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith 103]

Imam Ahmad Raza and the scholars of Haramayn

Imam Ahmad Raza was not just a personality revered and accepted by the scholars of the Indian Subcontinent – even the scholars of Haramayn accepted his leadership and his status as the Mujaddid of his era. These are the words of some scholars of Makka in praise of Imam Ahmad Raza.

Imam Ghazalee s View about Hypocrisy

Imam Ghazalee s View about Hypocrisy

We will go through a text written by Hijjatul Islam Abu Hamid Mohammed Ibn-e Mohammed Toosee, popularly known with his appellation Imam Ghazalee.

You might have seen yourself that dry worshipper (pretender) and superficial mystic saints behave arrogantly. They consider others as abject. Due to arrogance they keep their face twisted and thought-provoking as if they are obliging people by performing extra two rak’ats namaz or they have got the certificate of salvation from the hell or they got certificate of admission into the paradise or they believe that only they are pious and virtuous persons and all others are unfortunates. Besides all the evils they dress themselves as helpless, sober and humble persons with woolen or thick silky cloths and display extreme tranquility and vulnerability. However, there is no correlation or link between such dress, tranquility and arrogance. On the contrary, arrogance and tranquility are just opposite and contradictory. But these unsighted persons do not understand.

Imam Ghazalee had defined sense of arrogance as below:

Haughtiness (arrogance) is nothing but to consider one’s own ‘Amal as great and superior
[Minhajuk ‘Abedeen, Pg:283]

Said Yazid al-Ruqashi ‘I have heard it said that when the deceased is set in his tomb his works amass around him and are given to speak by Allah, so that they say, “O bondsman, alone in his pit! Your family and friends are now separated from you, so that today we are your sole companions.”
(Ihya’ of al-Ghazali)
